Some Salient Points from the
Three Leading Speeches.
STJBSTANOF OF ABBETT'S BEMABZS
How tlie Tariff Reform President Was
Put Cp for the Third Time Credit
Given Him for Recent Democratic Vic
tories DeWltt's Eloquent Eulogy of
Senator Hill His Achievements In the
Political Field What Duncombe Had
to Say of the Hawkeye Democratic Fa
vorite, Chicago, June 23. When Chairman
Wilson announcei last niyht at the Demo
cratic national convention that the next
thing: in order was the nomination of can
didates, there was a loud cheer, and
the multitude settled itself to listen.
The roll was called, and there
was no response until New Jersey was
readied, when Governor Leon Abbett
arose and proceeded to nanieGrover Cleve
land. He said he spoke for the Democracy
of New Jeraey to name a man for whom in
two contests that state had given her elec
toral vote. The New Jersey Democracy
wanted the success of the Democracy as
sured, and would sncrifice all personal
preferences to attain that end. He believed
that Brover Cleveland would sween the
country, and lie knew that the Democracy
of New York would rally to his standard.
Cleveland would rally thousands of in
dependent voters to his support, and his
nomination was denounced by millions of
Democratic voters. The feeling in his
favor was overwhelming. He had not
created tariff reform, but he had vitalized
the principle and made it n presidential is
sue, knitting the masses of the Democracy
into one great advocate of that principle.
Few men would have had the courage to
make the issue as he did. He had given
the party a living issue to fight for and
had made the great victories since 18SS
He had given the Democracy Russell in
Massachusetts, Boies in Iowa, Peck in
Wisconsin, Wlnans in Michigan, Camp
bell iu Ohio and Patti9on iu Pennsylvania.
In New ork ho had i?iven tb nnsr mil
for senator and Flower for governor. The
people believed that all these victories had
been made possible by the courage and
wisdom of Grover Cleveland. The presen
tation of Lhti name was no reflection on
any other great leader; he was not the
candidate of one state be was the choice
of the great majority of the Democracy.
De Witt Nominates D. It. Hill..
When New York was called W. C. Do
Witt arose and said:
Mn. FUalliBBT and FEI.I.OW DaxaoATna:
By the favor of my oolleasues I have now the
high honor to speak the rotoe of the state of
New York in this council f the Democracy of
the nation. Our majestic commonwealth needs
no eulogy here. Gateway of commerce, beta
from the ocean and the lakes, vast arsenal of
thou irht. through whose press the intelligence
of the world is gathered sad scattered through
the h.n i: j.:nl to the agrioaltara regions by
the fertile valleys of the Radeon, the Mohawk
and tlicU, nes.Ht.and opening up through tho
triple city seated anon its lay. those creator.

phs of the glebe; th- fullest development of
which will Ik- the source .f our host prosperity
the state of Xew York is none fhc less
paramount in our rvolltl.-.i ii,,, ,
affairs Her groat city is the lif.vi vine heart
of th.- Democratic party. Her electoral vote is
th. k- ysfone of the federal area upon which
alone v.e cm rest the citadel or o-.ir hopes.
She realizes in her pr -sent relation-with the
Democratic party of the nation what was said
of the It enaa ampitheatre:
'While stauls the fYBnm
Borne shall stand; wheu falls the Coliseum
Ami when Rome falls, the world "
The speaker then rehearsed the Democratic
victories in Sew York since lss.., and proceed
ing said that of the 4,fli millionaire, in the
country. l,ci are said to lip the result of the
tariff and an equal Dumber of corporate prc.sl
and that a leader who bolds the corporation
autocrats ami liable to the will of their creator
the state - whose friends are the plutocrats of
the land and who does not sympathize in an
effort to enlarge the currency in the InUuuil
of productive industry, lacks qualities indis
penaable as a standard beare. of the Democra
cy. He then sai-lj:
Our people want a leader flllod with the in
stincts, aspirations, shrewdness.sapa.-ity,hopes,
'ears, joys and sorrows which crowd their struc
gle for life and happiness. We therefore present
for your suffrage, the name of him. who ha v
inc enjoyed all the honors of our state, still
finds his highest boast in the sentiment '-1 am
a Democrat." However eminent mav be his
post oi duty he does not deacon I to us from
aoove. out in tne roll-call of the Democracy he
steps proudl. fr-.m th - ranks. Do you ask for
his credentials !
We point yon to the unbroken series of vic
tories by which he has rendered Xew
York a veritable Gibraltar to the Demo
cracy of the union. When with all
the power and patronage of tho federal
governme..t at his command, the distinguished
ex-president lost the state of New York by a
minority of 14,K), Gov. Hill carried it. by a
majority of over 18,(110 votes, and at every
election during the past ten years ho and his
friends have met with constantly increasinc
Mr. Hill never had any alliance with malcon
tents nor any favor in the Republican party.
The chiss of men from our state who so
violently oppose his nomination today have
uniformly opposed him in the past. He has
always been nominated under a shower of
their vituperation and abuse, and he has
always emerged from the conflict with the
increasing commendation of the peopl .
DeWitt then gave a brief review of Senatnr
Hills public life. Said he wasacavalier rather
than a roundhead, and referred to his opposi
tion to sumptuary laws, advocacy of religious
liberty in worship, increase of public holidays
and support of outdoor pastimes, and to his ad
ministration of the affairs of New York state
continuing as folio vs: ia.e,
It is said if we make another nom
ination we shall have a calm election
our dear business interests will not be
disturbed, and the people will be quite indiffer
ent about the result. If it indeed be true that
politics have sunk so low that no man can serve
his party earnestly without personal reproach
if national conventions throiigh rea-ular organ
izations have indeed become pernicious and
disreputable, then the entire system of popular
government is a failure. Nothing is more
healthy than political agitation, and nothing is
more dangerous than political st.gnatton
Men of kindred convictions and emotions
naturally combine on all great questions of
civil government and where population is im
mense, there must be parties governed by
appropriate organizations. It is because Mr
Hill awakens party feeling, agitates the con
tending farces to the very dregs, exercises the
wrath of the Republican and the enthusiasm of
m. im1" i aw, uui ue is a neaitny and success
ful candidate. Politic nominations made to
placate Republicans; to pander to men who
esteem themselves better than their party, or
to suckle and support the heartless middlemen
of the timtis are distasteful to our people. We
present David B. Hill as the candidate of an
unterrifled and agressive Democracy.
His experience teaches us that such is the way
to succeed. Weljvehim not merely for the
enemies he has made but for the enemies he
has r. : H- o.u ..- -r ....... .1 ... tm

and having just entered ujsm the high office of
senator of the United S ates, if he entertained
the slightest doubt of his ability to carry his
state he won d not suffer his name to be con
nected with the nomination. Besides, the del
egation from New York 1 not itself unmindful
of its own responsibility, and of the great duty
of truth and candor it owes to this body. We
have never misled you in presenting a sterling
Democrat to your favor. We gave you Horatic
Seymour and our people endorsed I im against
G.-n. Grant. We gave you Samuel Tilden and
in turn our state endorsed him. We acquiesced,
we did not advise the nomination of 188a.
The convention was then asked to observf
the comity lietween st ates, and the history
tho state convention and the "anti-snap" bolt
referred to, the speaker saying that the Syra
cuse people were attempting to force upon New
York a candidate hostile to the Democratic or
canization there, which organization ho de
fended as truly representing the party. H
Our pulses will throb in unison with our
brothers from any state whose chosen sou

i Mr. Duncombe th.si referred in glowing
words to the great w. -t, northwest and south

polled than had ever been polled before in any
state election, and nearly that number more
than in any presidential election, his majority
for governor was increasod from 6,523 to 8,218,
and the entire Democratic ticket was elected.
This increase in Democratic votes, came not
from the residences of the cities, but from the
farmers of Iowa.
Boies' administration of the affairs of tha
state was then eulogized and he was described
as by nature a Democrat, while his persona
inspection was enlarged upon, and the Iowa
Democracy credited with loving him for the
friends he had made. He continued :
This convention will make no mistake il
it shall elect as its nominee that man of correct
habits; of honest purposes; of patriotic motives;
of clear cultivative mental vision; of sterling
integrity; of calm delilieration and judgment;
of manly and moral courage; of deep thought
and study; of unflagging Industry: that careful,
painstaking man, without siot or blemish: that
noble son of the east.and adopted son of the west
who has never been defeated : who has no foes in
his own party to conciliate; who has no errors
to correct and no explanations or apologies to
make: and who will, if nominat.-d. fill the
struggling, fighting Democracy of Iowa, the
great west and the entire nation with uncon
querable courage: that born peerless leader,
who will in November, if nominated, march at
the head of an army of 7,UUU,0W of voters with
60.0UU waving banners under the triumphal
arch, and on whose brow will again be placed the
wreath of victory; whom Iowa now nominates.
