Springfield, Ills., Aug. 19. The Stat 0
Republican club convention held here yes
teraay was a notable gathering. The ar
rangements were perfect and the city was
crowded with the rank, aud file of the Re
publican party, aud there were a number
of leaders present, among whom the guest
of the day, 'Whitelaw Keid, vice presides
tial candidate, was uio-t notable. Then
there were Senar Cullom. Representa
tire Burrows and others of national fame,
nd for Gov. Fifer, of this state.
The convent ion was called to order in the
ball of thejiiottxe of representatives and
the state was so well represented that the
chamber was taxed to Us uttuost to bold
Prenitlent Tracy's Address.
President Tracy, of the Republican Club
league of the state, called the convention
to order and proceeded to address
It. Ita spoke of the growth of the
aeaeue since it was organized two years
ago by 2, 0CO young Republicans in this
hall aud stated its object to bo to direct
and interest in politics those who were
more or less neglectful of the duties of
citizenship and to unite the young Re
publicans of the state in a bond of
brotherhood. It was he said a training
school of politics, ami he urged the mem
bers to increase its strength that it might
become a lasting bulnvark of party or
Work Cnt Out for the League.
After a eulogy of the Republican party
the speaker said that the work of the
Republican league during the pending
campaign, was to see that it embraced
within its membership a large majority of
the youpg men of the state, and he pres
ed upon his hearers the necessity of steady
and persistent work during the next two
months. He was sure the league would
respond to the summons not only willing
ly but eagerly and with seal. President
Tracy was. repeutedly cheered all through
Lis address-aud given an ovation at its
Preliminary Bm loots Transacted.
A letter was read from President Httrri-
too, and Mrs. J. Ellen Foster sent a tele
gram giving the league greeting from the
woman Repnblicans of the country. Pres
ident Harrison's letter regretted the im
possibility of his presence, and gave the
league his hearty thanks for the invita
tion to come, lie expressed the hope that
the meeting would nerve the young Re
publicans to take an aggressive position
And push the work with increase ! zeal and
interest. It was ruled that a committee
on permanent organization was not neces
sary, as the league organ izal ion was al
ready permanent. Recess was then taken
till 2:30 o'clock in order to enable the dele
gates in congressional district caucusses to
elect delegates to the national convention,
ice presidents, etc.
The Leagrue Klects Officers.
Upon reassembling the convention elect
ed the followiug omcers: President, W.
W. Tracv; secretary, A. J. Lester, of
Springtield; assistant secretaries, John
liewey, John T. Hrown; treasurer, Will
iam A. Paulsen, of Chicago. Vice presi
dents were electeil from eaeh congression
al district ami delegates were chosen from
the twenty congressional districts to the
national convention at Buffalo. With
the adoption of resolutions the business of
the convention closed and the time up to 5
o'clock was occupied with speech making
and the singing of plantation melodies.
The Guest of the Day Appears.
Finally, at 5 o'clock, Whitelaw Reid en
tered the hall on the arm of Senator Cul
lom. Ueid's appearance was the signal for
a prolonged outburst of cheering. He was
conducted to the speaker's desk, when
Senator Cullom took the gavel and as
sumed control of the proceedings. He in
troduced Governor Fif-jr, in order to give
Reid a chance to recover his breath. Gov
ernor Fifer made a short address, closing
oy saying: enave witu us torlay our
candidate for the vice presidency He has
unu a xiepuuuuau iruiu eanj juuiu hi me

nation and in return has reflected honor
upon it. He is well equipped by education
and by his love of free Institutions to fill

ple have already decreed he shall be
SPEECH BY EDITOR REED.
Be Says the Democracy If as Defined the
The audience cheered vociferously when
Reid stepped forward to address them. He
smiled und toyed with his watch chuin as
the demonstration proceeded. He spoke
easily aud rapidly, looking only occasion
ally at his notes. He was frequently in-
terrupted by applause.
Air. Reid lirst pttid a compliment to the
league, and Mid that political activity
was or oytiht to lie one of the purest
and best (onus of manly endeavor. There
were cJ IT.Ul t cIulk emb.-uciu a mem
bership of J,Aj0,0J0 youu,' men. They
were the lioo of tlu republic He in
dorsed the methods of the organization as
Imbued with the live spirit of Republican
ism, which had always been a youns man's
party. Be in -4 asked by a "practical friend"
about the "Big Four," of New York, he
saia no orougnt tneir greeting united
and authorized the greetings of Hiscock,
Miller, Piatt and Depew and of all the
leaders of New lork Republicanism.
No Lussard New York.
There were no laggurds in Xew York.
Khe work in the state was advanced and
Mere were no quarrels except healthy
ones, and no factious. He was not here to
make a campaign speech, however, nor to
ntter a word against either of the Demo
cratic candidates. "I come from the state
of one of them, and am, at this moment, a
guest in the state of the other. It gives
pleasure to know that both of them are
tried, able aud sincere men too sincere
and too honorable to take a nomination
without incurring its full party obliga
tions or to stand on a platform without
accepting aud maintaining its doctrine."
And to that doctrine it wouldd be the
privilege and opportunity o Republicans
to bold them.
The Issues Clearly Defined.
Said he: "On that doctrine your cam
paign will be fought and won. We do not
need to turn our faces, even in reminis
cence, to the past. We m:iy leave out of
the discussion the w hols history of the Re
publican party which is through thirty
years the history of the most glorious and
the most prosperous period of the repub
lic. We may even overlook the record of
the Democratic party for the same time
a record which they are apt to consider it
unkind and unfriendly to mention. We
need only fix attention upon the policy for
the future they have at last openly and
manfully avowed to insure their renewed
Rcld on the Democratic Position.
Mr. Reid then gave his definition of the
Democratic position. They wer opposed to
protective tariff. They ds.-n m.l a tariff
for revenue only, declare any other uncon
stitutioual and proclaim this 'the funda
mental principle of the Democratic party.'
e are bound to take tnem at their word.
The Democrats declare the McKin-
ley bill not only unconstitutional, but 'the
culminating atrocity of class legislation."
The Democrats also denounced the "sham"
reciprocity established by the Republi
cans, and would of course abolish it.
Reid then enumerated the advantages
claimed for the system. Another principle
of the Democracy was that the national
banking system must go and its place be
taken by the state hanking system.
2 Comments on Financial Issues.
He then referred to the state system as
it existed before the war and the counter
feit detectors and bank note reporters
that bad to be consulted by everybody
when receiving money due. He defended
the protective tariff, und gave figures to
show that it had been of great benefit to
the country, even the McKinley bill dur
ing its brief existence. He closed with
the statement that the Democracy had
made the campaign for the Republicans;
had repudiated protective tariff against
the traditions of their own party and the
words of Jefferson and Jackson. "Let us
rise up and go forward. They have been
blinded again to their own destruction and
are delivered into our hands.
A hurricane of applause swept over the
audience as the speaker closed. The del
egates and visitors threw hats in the air,
waved flags and handkerchiefs, and went
wild generally. Speeches were made by
ex-Governor Oglesby, Representative Ju
lius C. Burrows, and James T. Burke,
president of the College league of Repub
lican clubs, also spoke.
Incidents of the Meeting.
The train bearing Reid and party was
two hours late and the convention put in
its waiting time in listening to speeches
as stated above. The fact that' Reid was
to speak drew an immense crowd of visi
tors to the city. One thousand delegates
were present when the convention was
called to order. As the Blaine club of
Chicago marched into the hull bearing its
banner the cheering was tumultuous.
Other clubs bearing Harrison banners
followed and were warmly greeted.
3 Proceedings in the Evening.
Reid, Burrows, Cullom and the state
candidates dinid with Governor Fiftr
at the executive mansion last evening. A
torchlight procession, formed of Spring
field aud visiting clubs, paraded shortly
after 9 o'clock and was reviewed by Gov
ernor Fifer's guests. Three outdoor meet
ings were held at the state house grounds.
Burrows delivered a speech on the
tariff at the main stand. Yates aud John
F. Scnnlon spoke at another, aud James
F. Burke, president of the American Col
lege league; General Pavey, George Wil
lets, and Coroner Hertz at the third. Reid
spoke briefly at the main stand. The
points be made were a duplicate of those
in his afternoon address. Reid left for
Chicago early this morning.

Out at Buffalo.

The Grand Master Authorized to Call

Arthur Half of New York's National
Guard on the Ground Some Exciting
Scones Railway Officials Refuse " to
Arbitrate, and President McLeod Is
Very Emphatic Notes of the Trouble.
Buffalo, X. Y., Aug. 19 At 2 o'clock
yesterday afternoon the entire force of
switchmen on the Nickel Plate road join
ed the forces of the strikers. The trouble
was precipitated by the discharge of two
men for refusing to switch New York
Central freight. At midnight the men on
the Lackawanna were working. Inquiry
at the office of Supt. Seibert elicited the
information that no intimation had been
given the company that the men intended
Sarg-ant Blay Call Them Out.
A very important meeting of firemen
and trainmen was held last night. The
old story that the engineers and firemen
on the Xew York Central would go out
was revived at a late hour last night, but
nothing definite could be learned until
the meeting adjourned, when it was an
nounced that the firemen had authorized
Grand Master Sargent to call them out
whenever he thought it proper. Railway
officials openly state that a cessation of
passenger traffic is an immediate prob
ability. Engineers Getting Restive.
The engineers also held a meeting and
decided that a committee of the brother
hood should wait upon Chief Arthur to
day. The trainmen's meeting developed
the fact that they are ready to strike
should certain contingencies arise. Prac
tically the situation is unchanged so far
as the trainmen and engineers are con
cerned. The meetinc lasted until after 1
o'clock and was a spirited one.
EIGHT THOUSAND SOLDIERS.
More Than Half of the New York Mi
litia at liufialo.
BUFFALO, Aug. 19. By noon yesterday
8,000 soldiers of the National Guard had
established lines rather thin it is true
all around the center of trouble in this
city and the strikers were sternly stopped
when they tried to break through. At
one point in the morning the strikers
takin advantage of the "thin blue line"
gathered in great numbers and crowded the
pickets. They grew bolder and bolder
ut.til Capt. Kirby sent for reinforcements
which were hurried forward. Before they
arrived the mob had become so threaten
ing lhat Kirby stepped to the front and
drawing his revolver said that the first
man who stepped beyond a certain line
would get shot. This stopped the mob,
and a moment later the reinforcements
Charged on the Mob. ,
At another time the mob grew bold and
a charge was ordered which was executed
so promptly that the mob fled in all direc
tions. During the afternoon in the Lake
Shore yard a crowd of strikers gathered
and stoned two yard engines, breaking the
glass in the cab and driving the engineer
and fireman from their posts. A messen
ger was dispatched to Genera! Doyle fo- a
force of militia and pending their arrival
work was suspended. A few skirmishes
here and there served to relieve the monot
ony, but none was of a serious nature.
So the day wore itself out, and night fell
upon a situation that was little if any im
proved from the morning. But few freight
trains were moved dnring the day.
Railways Refuse to Arbitrate.
The state board of arbit-ratian met in the
afternoon and prepared a circular which
was sent to the executive officers of the
roads on which the trouble exists. It
stated that the switchmen had -expressed
a willingness to arbitrate, and required to
be informed whether the railroads would
consent to an adjustment of the difficul
ties by such arbitration. Vice President
Webb returned a reply which is believed
to embody the sentiment of the officials
the other roads. It was to the effect that
the Central had nothing to arbitrate.
McL.eod'8 Emphatic Refusal.
The reply of President McLeod, of the
Reading system, was rather savage. He
instructed General Superintendent Bon
zauo to reply to the communication of the
state beard of arbitration informing him
that "one Sweeney" was willing to arbi
trate, that "the time to ask or consider the
question of arbitration had passed when
the men abandoned the service of the com
pany, destroyed its property, and threat,
ened to murder its employes. They are
now therefore, in my judgment, not enti
tled to any consideration other than that
Heslng's Plan Adopted.
New Yokk, Aug. 19. The campaign

HAL POINTER IS KING.
He Pace a Mile In :05 1-4, Wiping Ont
Direct's Fast Time.
Chicago, Aug. 19, Hal Pointer was
sent to beat the harness record of 2:0C,V
made by Johnston in this city on Oct. 3,
184, at Washington park yesterday. He
paced the mile in 2:05V. and not only
wiped out the mark shot at, but splin
tered the 2:06 pacing record of Direct
and became th e side-wheeling champion
of the world. In connection with Nancy
Hanks' feat Wednesday Washington park
has thus gained the distinction of break
ing two world's records in as many consec
utive days. It was intended to have Di
rect. and Hal Pointer decide their match
yesterday, but Direct was not well, and
the event was declared off.
Did It Without a Skip.
The feat was performed as steadily as
clockwork. The horse had made three
slow miles as a warmer, and Frank Starr
and the old runner Abe Lincoln were along
as pacemakers. Geers drove Pointer. At
the quarter the time was 0:31J-; at the
half 1:0: J, and at the three-fourth 1:34.
All this time Greers simply held ties lines,
and steadied his horse. In the last quarter
Geers shook Pointer up a little, and when
the wire was passed and the time an
nounced the spectators yelled themselves

IRON HALL DEVELOPMENT.
Cashier Davis Refuses to Surrender
Ixpiaxapolis, Aug. 19. The sensation
al development in the Iron Hall difficulty
yesterday was the refusal of Supreme
Cashier Davis, who had just returned from
Philadelphia, to surrender his books lo
the finance committee of the order for in
vestigation. The committee completed
an examination of Supreme Accountant
Walker's books and pronounced them all
right in every respect. When a demand
was made on Davis for his books he re
fused. He offered no explanation for his
action, and as he could not be found
Inter there is a rumor that he has left the
Somerby Down on the Prexs.
The attorneys and officers of t he Iron
Hall have returned from Philadelphia,
and the receivership suit was reopened this
morning. Supreme Sustice Somerby says
he will go to Philadelphia and start a new
Iron Hall. To a reporter he said be had
given his last interview to the newspapers;
that his treatment by the press had been
scandalous. The appointment of a receiver
for the Iron Hall by Judge Taylor is now
a foregone conclusion.
