Dknvkk, J-'ku. 10. The Groystone ban
quet, given (it the Hro.-nlway theatre last
niht, proved to be an atlraet ion that filled
the unllcries with thrones of people. The
proceei'.niKs had a convention air about
them, as it was uroierst jk1 that Governor
Boies, of low, the principal speaker of
the evening, would sound his first slogan
for the coming campaign. When the
march was lu-min into the banquet hall,
which presented the picture of a bower
of plants and roses, the applause and
cheers shook the building. State Senator
Alexandvr H. McKinley, of Colorado, and
Governor Uoies, of Iowa, were in the
Notable Men W ho Were Present.
Before the governor was permitted to
take his seat, at the head of the centre
table he was compelled to bow to his ad
mirers. Oa his left sat Senator McKiniey,
and on his ri ;ht Hon. Caldwell Veanian,
of Denver, (. hers who sat at this table
were Hon. Thomas I. Crittenden, ex-governor
of Missouri; Hon. L. Ci. Kinne, of
Iowa: Hon. Thomas M. Patterson, of
Denver; Mayor lingers, of Denver; lion.
Charles A. Cullierlson, ex-attorney gen-i-r.-il
of Texas, and other distinguished
The Governor Kises to Speak.
The banquet was disposed of and the
last of the cig;irs bad curled away in
smoke before the speeches l.guii. Sena
tor McKinley made the address of wel
come in In-half of the club and the mayor
in behalf of the city. Kx Governor Alva
Adams, of Colorado, responded to the
toast "The West in Politics;'" Hon. Charles
A. Culhertson to "The South and West in
Politics;' Hon. J. I). tVUryau, of New
Mexico, paid a tribute to "The Indies, "
tnd then, amid great applause. Governor
Holes arose to respond to "Democratcy of
IN'-." He bowed repeatedly to the audi
ence lwfore he lieirnn.
Duty of the Democracy.
Governor Iloics began with a brief re
view of the work of building up a great
community in this far western country,
and then proceeded to the topic of his dis
course, which was the tariff almost ex
clusively. He said that in n broad sense
the Democratic party "must continue to
stand as the champion of " the personal
rights of the individual," and applied this
principle to the obligation of the party to
promote tariff reform by saying that each
individual has the right to he as fairly and
justly treated by the country's laws as is
every other member of the same.
TARIFF THE SUPREME ISSUE.
The f.overuor Taken the Cleveland View
of the Coming Fight.
He said it was not difficult to foresee
the supretne'issue in 1892 the tariff. Said
he: "Xo doctrine was ever more thor
oughly imbedded in the creed of a politi
cal organization than that asserted by
modern Republicanism that the powers of
this government may be used to promote
the pecuniary interests of distinct classes
of citizens, and no result was ever more
certain than that which follows, if this
lain be done, that the same powers may be
used to retard like interests of other
classes.' He argued the question on the
tariff for revenue only line, but said that
such a doctrine did not necessarily imply
that American manufactures were to re
ceive no benefit.
The Farmer Must He Considered.
He declared that nearly as many people
were engaged in agriculture as in all other
industries combined, and that protective
tariff worked their financial ruin, and that
the laws should be changed in simple jus
tice so that they would be permitted to
buy in markets where prices were fixed
by competition, as they had to sell in that
sort of market. He closed with the dec lara
tion that- "We must not falter. This is the
issue, and this alone will lead us to vic
tory." Senator Vest Significant Letter.
Several letters of regret were read, the
most significant lieing from "Senator Vest.
He said: "The nomination of Cleveland
is, in my opinion, impossible. The man
agers and tacticians in Xew York have de
termined that, he shall not, and I know
enough of them and of conventions to be
certain that, ihey will achieve their pur
pose. Now York is neccessary to the suc
cess of the jiarty. If Hill is
nominated he will be defeated. If
the nomination comes from New York
Flower is the strongest candidate. My
personal preference would lie W. K. Mor
rison, of Illinois, but Palmer, Carlisle,
Gray or Uoies could command the full
Democrat ic vole."
WantH to Investigate John Sherman.
Coi.lMIUS, O., Feb 10. A Democrat is
member of the house of representative has
prepared a resolution reciting that Hon.
John Sherman has been charged with se
curing his re-election as senator of the
United States by duress, frauds, threats
and promises in violation of the law, and
asking the senate to investigate.
THE WISCONSIN "GERRYMANDER."
Argument Kegnn In a Notable Political
Law Mi it.
Madison, Wis., Feb. 10. Argument in
Ihe famous 'gerrymander" case was begun
in the supreme court yesterday. The re
pondent moved to dismiss the complaint
on the ground that the complainant had
no staudiug in court; that the court had
no jurisdiction, and that no violation of
the constitution bad been shown. Ex
Congressman Kdward S. Bragg appeared
for the respondent, the secretary of state
nominally, but the Democracy of Wiscon
sin in fact, and made a strong argument.
Concluded to If ear the Cats.
Ex-Attorney General C. K. Estabrook,
who. with Colonel Georae W. Bird and u-
pienator .-pooner, represented the Kepuo
lic.tii party in this proceeding, made a
long affirmative argument on the right of
the court to assume original jurisdiction.
The court took the matter under advise
nient at the noon recess, and on meeting
again announced that for the purpose of
this argument the court would consider
the motion of General Bragg to dismiss in
the nature of a demurrer, and would hear
all proceedings which might belong to
such. Spootirr liegan his argument, but
he only spoke for shotl time when recess
was taken until t.idav.
BLAINE TO RESIGN HIS OFFICE.
A Report Kent to New York on Alleged
Xew YoitK, Feb. 10. The Press this
morning prints a special from its "Wash
ington correspondent in which he says
that Secretary Blaine's resignation from
the cabinet will, after a reasonable inter
val, follow his letter of withdrawal as a
presidential possibility. Only the
date at which this action shall
be taken remains undetermined. The
reason which Secretary Blaine will
give to the president for retiring from the
cabinet will be that of physical inability
to continue to perform the arduous and
exacting duties of his present office. The
I'ress correspondent says he has authority
second only to that of the secretary him
self for the above statements.
A (ieorgia Man for Hill.
Atlanta. Feb. 10. The Rome Tribune
created a sensation throughout the state
yesterday by the announcement in its edi
torial columns that henceforth the paper
would advocate the nomination of David
15. Hill for the president. The paper has
heretofore f vored Cle v ?land. Hon. John
.1. Seay, the proprietor cf the paper, is one
of the strongest, political leaders in
THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT OPEN.
Points from the Proceedings ami Legisla
I.omkiv, Feb. 10. Contrary to general
expectations the attendance at the open
ing of parliament yesterday was unusually
large. Kverybody hail predicted that there
would be a scanty showing of members of
the commons, but by actual count there
were over MX) present, which is said, to
break the rcord for the first day of a ses
sion. The lobbies and galleries presented
a seene of much animat ion, and the al
most universal tenor of the expression of
opinion on the subject was that a dis
solution of parliament was not far off.
Both bouses assembled in the house of
lords to hear the queen's speech. Just be
fore the assembly of parliament the Irish
factions met separately and held short
Points from the Oneen's Speech.
The principal features of the session as
laid down by the queen's speech will b
a bill applying to Ireland the local gov
ernment system already adopted in Eng
land: also some additional provisions for
the English system: also a measure to in
crease the number of holders of small
farms in England: also a bill to extend as
sisted education in Ireland, and some mi
nor measures for England and Scotland.
The speech opens with an expression of
gratitude for the many evidences of sor
row from all parts of the empire at the
death of Prince Albert Victor.
Har court Attacks Salisbury.
Harcourt criticised the measures pro
posed anil denounced Salisbury's speech at
Exeter. Feb. 2. crediting to his lordship the
assertion that the Roman Catholic priest
hood in Ireland had always been on the
tide of England's enemies. Balfour
warmly defended lrd "Salisbury against
what he classed as the 'distortions and
misrepresentations"' of the Liberal press,
claiming that the words Ixinl Salisbury
really said and the words attributed to
him were widely different.
An Ancient Ceremony.
At alnint 11 o'clock in the morning a de
tachment of "Beefeaters'' arrived from
the tower of Ixindou. Headed by a ser
geant they made a search of the vault of
Westminster hall, a custom that has pre
vailed at the opening of every session
since the discovery of the tJuy Fawkes
plot to destroy the houses of parliament.
REMARKS OF ENGLISH EDITORS.
They Take OfTeiike at Our Immigration
London, Feb. 10. The Standard And
The Globe contain articles denouncing the
report made by the American Emigration
commissioners, in which, among other
things, it is said that convicts are system
atically sent from Great Britain to the
Vnited States, nd that there has been
for eleven years a thoroughly organized
movement here encouraged and patron
ized by the government of Great Britain
for the purpose of of sending couvicts and
ex-convicts to the I nited States. The
Standard says it is doubtful whether a
more untruthful statement was ever made
in an official report. The report, The
Standard adds, is another instance of the
absolute inability of many citizens of the
I'nited States to exercise in affairs con
nected with Great Britain either imparti
ality or common sense.
"Scandalous and Prejudiced Remark."
The ljceds Mercury, referring to the
subject, says that the commission came to
establish a preconceived grievance, and
that there is little to justify the scandal
ous and prejudiced remarks just issued.
The Mercury says that it is humiliating to
condescend to answer the charge which
the report practically makes againt Great
Britain. Touching upon the same sub
ject the Manchester Courier says that
after English spi-culation has built up
America she closes her doors to commerce
and to the poor.
Taken a Vhurk at Kgnn.
The. New Castle Journal also has a fling
at the emigration commission report and
expresses the opinion that it will stimu
late the flow of sl.illed labor to the I'nited
States which, it says, admits convicts not
sent out by the British government,
Patrick Egau, according to The Journal,
is one convict not sont out by the British
government and, it adds, his career will
show how the Coiled Suites fostered and
The American Kagle Scream.
The Times publishes a letter from
"George Winter, late Brigadier General of
Volunteers, New York," which that paper
puts under the headline, "An American
Blusterer." In bis letter Britrndicr ticii-
erai winter menaces war bit ween mo
United States and England in the event
of England interfering in the dispute be
tween Chili and the I'nind Suites, and
declares that the result of such a war
wonld be the reduction of England to the
tonflition of a fourth rate powef. Com
rjenting on the letter The St. James Ga
aette says: -With Happing wings and
shrifl screams the American eagle is in
great form today." ;
The Royal Hotel Disaster. "
New Yohk, Ib. 10.-Five more bodies
were recovered yesterday from the Hotel
Royal ruins. Three mote bodies have been

Sarah Blake. A casket of diamonds be
longing to Mrs. Hattie 'Van Nordan was
also found. Three of the missing ha era
ported all right. 4

B. Rossell, of Freehold, X. J., was yester
day convicted and fined fciO for issuing
counterfeit cigar laliels, anil was also held
