New York, July 21. The first decisive
gun of the Democratic campaign of 1892
was touched off last night in Madison
Square garden in tae presence of a vast
assemblage. The huge auditorium was
packed from pit to dome, and as the place
VXW MADISON SQUARE OAUDKM.
I olds $10,000 persons comfortably it is
estimated that almost twice that number
were present. The occasion that brought
this vast throng together was the notifica
tion ceremonies of the two leaders of the
Democratic party Grover Cleveland and
Adlai K. Stevenson.
Was a Great anil Knthuslastic Crowd.
As early as C o'clock the crowd began
gathering about the doors, and at 7:30 p.
ru., when they were finally opened, the
streets about the gar.Ieu were filled with
a pushing, struggling, perspiring throng
which flowed into the auditorium with
he roaring souud of a cataract. Never
had the garden held such a crowd, nor had
more enthusiasm been displayed. The
pace room was economized to the utmost
degree, hundreds standing, after the seats
were filled, in lines so dense that breath
ing became difficult.
Prominent Persons Present.
The garden was profusely decorated
with flags and buutiug.the colors of which
were brought into strong relief by the
brilliant light from 8,000 electric lamps.
Among the prominent personswhooccupied
boxes Were: Wm. C. Whitney; Cbas. H.
Jones, editor of the St. Louis Republic;
Governor Flower; Frederick R. Coudert;
Bourke Cockran; Mayor Grant; Henry
Villard, Lieutenant Governor Sheehan,
Perry Belmont; E. D. Wall, of Wisconsin;
Don M. Dickinson, of Michigan; Ben.
Cable. Thomas Carson and E. P. Phelps,
of Illinois; ex-Governor Campbell; R. R.
Holden and Calvin S. Brice, of Ohio; Sena
tor Pasco; Wm. Harrity, of Pennsylvania;
and a host of others.
Cheers for the Nominee's Wire.
Mrs. Cleveland and party entered a box
about 6 o'c lock and this gave the crowd a
chance to give vent to some of their pent
up enthusiasm. Quiet bad scarcely been
restored when a mighty cheer broke ont
and there was a universal waving of hands
and arms, hats, handkerchiefs and fans.
Then John M. Bowers, escorting Adlai E.
Stevenson, appeared. Mr. Stevenson
gracefully acknowledged the plaudits
with a bow. Governor Flower and Gen
eral Sitkles were the next arrivals, and
they were also vigorously cheered.
An Ovation to (iroier Cleveland.
Then surrounded by a group of notable
men the leader of the Democracy and of
tariff reform made his way to the front
of the platform. The cheering and plaudits
that had gone before were as nothing com
pared to the ovation tendered the man
who has so wound himself in the hearts
of Democracy. Each and every man and
woman stood on their feet applauding in
the most enthusiastic manner. He bowed
his thanks a '.ruin and agr.in, and the din
and noise continued for many minutes,
and it continued after William L. Wilson,
of West Virginia, appeared and began his
Ppeeih of notification to Cleveland.
HEAD OF THE TICKET NOTIFIED.
Wilson or Virginia the Spokesman The
Loader's Remarks In Reply.
Wilson was not heard thirty feet from
the stage for the most part of his speech,
which was a graceful effort, in which he
assured Cleveland that there would be no
weak, weary, or despondent Democrats in
the ranks, aud expressed no doubt of vic
tory in the coming campaign.,. Nicholas
N. Bell, of Missouri, read the formal letter
of notification, aud when Cleveland ap
peared lo respond the audience broke forth
in another scene of wild enthusiasm until

Bided. - '
The Presidential Nominee's Response.
In responding Cleveland spid the repre
sentatives of his party who were present
must share with him the responsibilities
the mission of the committee invited.
The responsibility was great, but the par
ty was strong, intent upon the promotion
of right aud justice and never supplied
with a better incentive to effort. "Turn
ing our eyes to the plain people of the laud
we see them burdened as consumers with
a tariff system that unjustly and relent
lessly demands from them in the purchase
of the necessaries of life an amount scarce
ly met by the wages of hard and steady
toil, while the exactions thus wrung from
them build up and increase the foi tunes
of those for whose benefit this injustice is
Allude to the Homestead Trouble.
"Our workiugrnen are still told the tale,
often repeated in spite of its demonstrated
falsity, that the existing protective tariff
is a boon t them, and that under its
beneficent operation their wages must in
crease, while as they listen scenes are
enacted in the very abiding place of high
protection that mock the hopes of toil and
attest the tender mercy the workingmen
receives from those made selfish and
sordid by unjust governmental favorit
ism.'? He said that the party was not
recklessly heedless of American interests,
but insisted that no tarm plan should
have for its object a forced contribution
from one class of citizens to swell the ac
cumulations of a favored few.
Refers to the "Force" Hill.
The speaker continued: "We have also
Assumed in our covenant v.-ith those .whose
support we invite the duty of opposing to
the death another avowed scheme of our
adversaries which under the guise of pro
tecting the suffrage covers but does not
conceal a design thereby to perpetuate the
power of a party afraid to trust its con
tinuance to the untrammelled and intel
ligent votes of the American people. We
are pledged to resist the legislation in

we have not forgotten the saturnalia of ,
theft and brutal control which followed '
Other Reasons for Opposition.
Other reasons for resisting this measure,
he said, were: "Because we know that
the managers of a party which did not
scruple to rob the people of a president,
would not hesitate to use the machinery
created by such legislation

1 cannot, therefore, forbear remindine
you and all those attached to the Demo
cratic party that defeat in the peudiug
campaign, followed by the cot inmation
of the legislative schemes our.pponents
contemplate, and accompanied by such
other incidents of their success as might
more firmly fix their power, would present
a most discouraging outlook for future
Democratic supremacy and for the accom
plishment of the objects we have at heart.
Moreover, every sincere Democrat must
believe that the interests of his country
are deeply involved in tLe victory of our
party in the struggle that awaits us." He
closed by recommending systematic and
intelligent effort for success and the ex
pression of the belief that success would
crown that effort.

The Illinoisan's Remarks.
Stevenson said that the mission given
him by the Democratic national conven
tion was a distinction of which any citi
zen might well be proud, aud he distrust
ed his capacity to meet the expectation
of those who had so honored him. He had
been identified with an important branch
of the public service during the late Dem
ocratic administration, and was glad to
know that his party had indorsed his
services. He quoted the words of Thomas
A. Hendricks when officially informed of
a similar honor, when the late vice presi
dent referred to the importance of
the position of presiding officer of the
senate when it came to the exer
cise -of the casting vote, and Stevenson
said that, if elected, Hendrick's utterances
would be a light for his pathway.
Protection and Free 11 al lot.
The welfare of the toiling millions was
bound up in the success of the Democracy.
Recent occurrences in Pennsylvania had
demonstrated that protective tariff did rjt
better the condition of the workmen. Be
lieving in the right of every voter to cast
his ballot unawed by power, the Demo
cratic party would steadily oppose all
legislation which threatens to imperil that
right by the interposition of federal bayo
nets at the poll.
Both candidates promised to indicate by
letter more fully their views touching the
issues of the campaign.
More Honors for Mrs. Cleveland.
At the conclusion of Stevenson's speech,
Chairman Wilson declared the meeting
adjourned. While the crowd was dispers
ing. Mrs. Cleveland came in for some more
honors.which showed her great popularity.
Several thousand persous gathered around
where she was seated aud cheered her
repeatedly. She looked marvelously be
coming in a costume of gray, her face
wreathed in smiles for the honors paid
her distinguished husband and herself.
Reception at the Mauhattan Clnb.
Long before the notification meeting at
Madison Square garden had closed the cor
riders of the Manhattan club were packed
with the people who had been fortunate
enough to secure tickets for the reception
to be given the candidates by the club.
Shortly before 10 o'clock Cleveland ar
rived. Steveuson followed. The sight of
Cleveland rtised a cheer that was repeat
ed as Stevenson appeared. Cleveland and
Stevenson t hen stood for an hour in
club's reading room and shook hands
with all who came. A collation closed
the proceedings which ended about mid
night. It os too Republicans Ratify.
Bostox, July 21. -It was the Republican
turn to ratify last night, and Tremont
Temple rang with words of praise for the
nominees of the Minneapolis convention.
The hall was well filled, and many familiar
faces were seen among the many who filled
the platform. Hon. W. W. Crapo, of New
Bedford, presided and made the, opening
address, in which he said the nomination
of Harrison came as a natural, legitimate,
and logical conclusion. Ex-Governor
Brackett, Hon. F. T. Greenhalge, and Hou.
Henry Cabot Lodge also made speeches.
