there northeast through Sumner county,

Augusta in Butler county, and. thence to

He gave his views on the presidential race.
He said he wanted to see plenty of candi

Reed Enthuse the Voter-Frank Hat
ton Makes a Guess at Blaine's Position,
" CnicAoo, April 4. There was a good
deal of Democratic politics to the sqilare
inch at Chicago Saturday. The annual
banquet of the Iroquois club brought
them together from several states and a
good many of them had booms aloug with
them, not in their grip-sacks, either.
There were Don Dickinson, of Detroit,
and Kditor Shanklin, of the Evansville
(Iud.) Courier, who had a Cleveland
boom and "made it hum." Governor
Boyd was less robust in the mat ter, but
added to the same boom. Ex-Governor
Winans, of Michigan, carried his boom
carefully iu view of the vigor of the one
Dickinson and Shanklin were talking up.
But when ho said anything it was prin
cipally 'Boies and Russell.'' Then came
Alfred Orendorf, of Springfield, Ills., with
a boom, which it was for Senator John M.
Palmer, who, the Springfield man said
had the Illinois vote at the Chicago con
vention carefully deposited in a snug
corner of his vest pocket.
The Banquet at the Palmer.
But all except one of these booms boomed
"like a sucking dove" at night. The Iro
quois braves met at their wigwam with 4K)
politicians of several states around the ta
bles, and from first to last the keynote of
the talk and speeches was "Cleveland and
tariff reform. The silver question was
"not in it." The words spoken by W. G.
Ewing, of this city, were the keynote. He
"There is but one issue tariff reform.
The doctrine of protection was conceived in
sin, carried in corruption, and brought forth
in iniquity. in Democratic Viscon.-in
a public oftiee is a public trust." "Cleveland!
Cleveland! U rover Cleveland!" shouted his au
ditors. Mr. Ewing concluded with: "We want
a candidate to personify all our needs. I
have descrilied his character, and HI,.
&' timi-s II i,i Ul men will name him Cleveland. "
Then it whs pandemonium broken loose.
It Was a Cleveland Meeting.
The list of speakers was headed by the
following quotation from the ex-president:
"The nation's strength is in her people.
The nation's prosperity is in their prosper
ity. The nation's glory is in the equality
of her justice. The nation's perpetuity is
in the patriot ism of all her people." The
banquet was to commemorate the birth of
Thos. Jefferson.and it was in eulogy of him
that W. G. Ewing spoke. The list of the
other toasts follows: "The Citizen in Pol
itics," Don M. Dickinson; "Young Men and
Democracy," Sherman Hoar; "Public Mon
eys for l'ublic Uses Only," Governor E. R.
Winans; "A Crisis in Democracy," John
DeWitt Warner; "Party Honesty Is Party
Duty, and Party Courage Is Party Expe
diency," S. E. Morss. Mr. Cleveland sent
a letter in which he eulogized Jefferson
and Jefferson ian ideas. ,
FEVER HEAT IN RHODE ISLAND.
Roth Great Parties Enjoyed TheliiHelves
rr.ovnENCE, April 4. Saturday was the
closing day of the state campaign and
both great parties held meetings here
which included in their audiences a large
proportion of the voters of the city. The
Republican rally was held in two sec
tions and the "star" speakers were Reed
and McKinley alternated at the two halls.
A letter was read from Secretary Blaine
giving the Republicans godspeed in their
fight. Five thousand men and women
listened to McKinley at Infantry hall, and
he presented in a vigorous manner the
Republican view of tariff. He said that
Democratic success in his state was won
on the promise of free wool and free iron
and these two things Rhode Island
would not get. Southern members whose
states were now producing iron would not
let that product come in free.
Reed Finds Something Grotesque.
Ex-Speaker Reed was speaking at the
saTKe time in, another hall. Among other
thTrjgS he said: I
To thfuk thai in this year of our Lord we
actually have to fight for the state of Rhode
Island seems to me to have something in it of
the element of grotesque. Here is a state,
small in area but full of wealth, full of success
and prosperity, all owing to the great fuct that
their manufactures have secured to them by
the system of protection the markets of the
United States, and yet there are some people
simple enough to listen to this wandering col
lection of western and Kentucky congressmen,
who are trying to persuade you Quit the best
thing for Khode Island is to give np its manu
factures and let England have her market.
Gave the Republicans a Vacation.
For the past thirty-two years what has the
Democratic party achieved? They have simply
been turuiug things. The people are begin
ning to know what they want, and when they
put the Democrats into power in Mn 1 supixne
t'.iey did this to give the Republicans a rest.
The Republicans had done so much they thought
they would like to take a vacation. The people
did not wish anything done, so they elected a
Democratic house. The people were right;
nothing has lieen done.
Criticises Democratic Regulation.
They marched np to the seventy cent dollar
and then they marched back temorarily.
They wero going to reduce the tariff. Why
did not they get up a complete revision? Now,
you know, my friends, that "tariff is a rob
bery;" it is "taking out of one man's pocket
and giving to another." You know it is so be
cause the Democratic orators tell you so. Now
the Democrats are in power, three to one, aud
they are going to Ive you a tariff out of a rag
baby. They want to catch the Khode Island
manafocturer's vote by giving him free wool;
say it will be better to have wool cheaper.
Then, in the same breath, they turn around to
the farmer and say that wool will be higher
There" is great . peculiarity about Democratic
legislation; it always works both ways; It
catches the people both going and coming.
Other speakers were Roswell G. Hoar, of
Michigan, and Governor Ladd of this
Cleveland Enthusiastically Received.
Ex-President Cleveland spoke to the De
mocracy, and had a large and enthusiastic
audience. Mr. Cleveland's speech was
devoted entirely to the tariff on general
principles. He taunted the Republicans
with the result of the elections of 18U0, and
declared his faith in the flag of tariff re
form which the Democracy had unfurled
and never taken down since. It would win
the next -election 'as it had those of 1890,
of which he said:
Those victims the defeated candidates
claimed that our voters failed to indorse their
form of the tariff because they did not-nnder-land
it. Hj quite probable, however, that if
they did not understand it . they feH it, and
that because it made them uncomiortaulet Juey
emphatically said such a reform was not wtaaa
they wanted. At a iy rate the consumers have
found life harder since this reform than be
fore, and if there is a workincrmau anywhere
who has had his wages increased by virtue of
its oyer at ion he has not yet made himself
Mnst Look to the Democracy.
The demand in your platform for free raw
materials ou,;ht, it seems to ine, to be warmly
seconded by the citizens of your state. The
advantages to the people of Rhode Island of
such a policy do not seem to be questionable,
and I am not hereto di.-cuss thein in detail;
but all I have said touching the conduct and
record of the Democratic party and its oppon
ents in regard to tariff legislation is in support
of the proposition that all who desire the
special relief referred to in your platform or
any other improvement in our tariff laws in
the general interest of the people must look to
the Democratic party for it.
Ex-Governor Campbell also made a
soeech on the same line of argument.
Foreign Fauper Labor In England.
Loxnoy, April 4. A number of the
chemical workers of Widnes have recently
been thrown out of work and compelled to
apply for poor law relief, owing to the em
ployment in their place of foreign paupers.
Incidents like this are strengthening the
feeling in favor of restricting immigration.
