Bloomixctox, UN., Aug. 27. Hon. Ad
lal K. Stevenson, Democratic candidate
for vice president of the United States,
speuptl Lis campaign this afternoon by a
speech which was listened to and heartily
applauded by a very large audience of his
friends and neighbors as well as many cit
izens from the towns and country around.
The speech was largely devoted to the tar
iff. He said that Cleveland's administra
tion wns confessedly honest, and none of
the evils predicted by the Republicans fol
lowed lit" inauguration. At the close of
the administration a surplus of $S:l,00f ,000
was It-ft in the treasury, and the question
Wus what should be done with t lie surplus
V.'tmt l:epnb1icans Kave Done.
The Ut-publicans Lave" answered that
question. The treasury was now threat
ened with bankruptcy. Default had been
made in providing fur the sinking fund,
and if provision, was made for that the de
ficiency staring the country in the face
was jj"i,i-0J,(iG0, This state of nffairs had
two causes: The McKinley bill and the
lavish appropriations of the Fifty-first
congress, ami its reckless legislation. He
criticised the action of the treasury in ex-
t.fiHiliir t 1. nurnittiil: rf Mm Iwim'a ilitf-nf1
of redeeming them at maturity, as had
beeu done under Cleveland. The large ap
propriations of the present congress were
made because the Republicans had made
it impossible to avoid them they were
required by laws made by the Ffty-first
Cuming Down on the Tariff.
After stating that for twenty-four years
previous to Cleveland's administration the
Kepublicans had legislated for the coun
try and theDemocratsopposodth.it legis
lation which had burdened the people with
taxation, Mr. Stevenson came to the taritl
question, declaring it the ail-important
question of the day. He said the Repub
licans favored prohibitory taritl
and the Democracts tariff reform.
The Republican policy was one that en
riches a few at the expense of the many.
The Democrats would reduce the tariff,
Cive manufacturers cheap raw materi.il
, aiitl consumers cheap iiei-essories. Henry
Clay hid always held that protection was
only temporary and t hat so soon as our
.industries were established duliis should
ite reduced, anil he would be a free trader
now, if living.
The Low Tariff of 1846.
Referring to the low tariff of 184ij,
Stevenson suid that it was a tariff for
revenue, and added: "The decade and a
half extending from the passage of the
low tariff law of ls4t to the beginning of
our civil war, has been truly called the
golden period of our history. The cost of
the necessaries of life had reached the
minimum, and at no time in our history
was it f easier for the wage-earner to sup
port his family. The farmer, the me
chanic, the day laborer alike realized the
benefit of low taxation. A benefit why?
Simply for the reason that it lessened the
cost of food, of clothing, of every article
that conduced to his comfort. Our
manufactories did not languish. The
fires did not go out in our furnaces. The
wheels and spindles were not idle in our
great hives of industry. The demand for
labor was not lessened, nor its value
depreciated." As a comparison he said
that the tariff duties in 101 averaged 19
percent.; under the McKinley bill they
were 47 per cent.
Special Taxes During the War
During the war taxes were imposed on
corporations, incomes, etc. those in fact
who could pay them -asily to a large ex
tent, aud fc'.'i'io, 000,1)00 per year were paid
into the treasury from these taxes, but
when the nat.ion was yet groaning under
the burden of debt all these taxes had been
swept away instead of those which
the common people paid. Why did not
congress first take the taxes off the neces
saries, instead of off the corporations and
The McKinley Tariff Bill.
The avowed object of the McKinley bill
was to check importation by a prohibitory
tariff. It gave its beneficiaries a practical
monopoly and enabled them to levy an ad
ditional tax on the consumer to that ex
tent to which the duty was increased. It
was idle to speak of its benefits to the
American farmer. He wanted both a
borne and a foreign market. He is com
pelled to sell in the markets of the world
and should be permitted to buy there.
The bill had benefited neither the farmer
nor the mechanic.
J)ld Kat Increase Wages.
Had the bill increased wages in a single
instance? It had made living cost more.
How then had it benefited the working
man f The bill was a delusion. Wages
were governed by the law of supply and
demand, aud tariffs had no effect npon
them. They had constantly been reduced
in the most highly protected establish
ments in the land. He quoted Daniel
O'Connor as saying that protection was
-obbery of the poor by the rich. The de
ficit in the treasury was caused in a meas
ure by the JkicKiuley bill.
The Hatter of Sugar.
Thaa bjll had repealed the sugar tax and
then given the sugar grower for fifteen
years a bounty of $10,000,000 per year. This
was another delusion. The consumer was
told be was getting free sugar when in re
ality he was paying the tax to the pro
ducer. The claim t hat tariff was paid by
the producer was abandoned in view of
tt: fact that the consumer undoubtedly
paid this biigar bounty. He then enumer
ated the bills to reduce the tariff passed
by the present house, all of which were
shelved by the Republican senate. The
tariff needed careful revision; raw mate
rials should be admitted free aud taxes
reduced to the minimum on necessaries.
Force' 15111 and School taw.
The issue presented by the force bill was
one of supreme importance. The Repub
licans were pledged to its passage and the
people muM detent their object. He ta
vored the repeal of the obnoxious provis
ions of the compulsory school law, aud
closed by a eulogy of the Democratic party
and of its leader ia the present conflict.
Mr. Stevenson was heartily cheered all
through his speech.

THE PRESIDENT MAKES A SPEECH.
His Remarks at a Reception Given Him
at Malone. N. Y.
Malone, X. Y., Aug. 27. Yesterday
President Harrison was given a reception
by the citizens of this place, the aff iir oc
curring at the park, where several thou
sand had gathered, among them a number
of comrades of the G. A. R. The speech
was principally patriotic, but the president
at one point voiced his ideas as to what
position among the nations of the earth
the United Stales should hereafter occupy.
Referring to the comparative isolation of
the Uuited States which frees us from the
dangers which threaten the Old World,
he said that this did not leave us without
duties and responsibilities. We had always
in our diplomacy exercised pativnee, re
serve of strength, and consciousness of a
Our Influence in the Future.
He then said: "I farft-y that we are en
tering now, as a people, upon a career
when our external influence in commerce
is to be larger t ban ever before.
We have accumulated prodigious wealth
as a people, aud I see no reason why t he
United States should not from this day
forward step into a position of power and
influence among the great commercial
nations of the world such as she has never
enjoyed. Applause. From causes, as
to which we differ, we have come to a con
dition recognizeil by all. We have been
deprived of our once proud participation
in the ocean carrying trade of the world.
I think we should now resume it. Ap
plause. JSuildingof the New Navy.
"The wise and timely inauguration of
a new navy has demonstrated the capac
ity of our American shipyards to produce
the best ships in the world. The govern
ment having pioneered in this work of
ship building by the encouragement it has
given our contractors aud to our artisans
has paved the way now for building great
ships of commerce. Applause. I take
delight in the contemplation of the fact,
which I believe is now assured, that before
another year has rolled around one of the
swiftest ami best of all the great lines of
steamships that go out of the port of New
York will hear the American flag at the
Will Do Our Own Carrying.
"The tribute we have paid to foreign na
tions in the way of freight charges, I be
lieve, will speedily, in a large measure, le
abrogated forever. These great stores of
agricultural products which w;e pour out
from our granaries to feed the nations of
Europe, should, and I believe speedily
will, be deliveivd nt the port of Liverpool
in American bottoms." Applause. He
said he believed we would never have an
other civil war, and that hereafter all the
Jieople would give willing obedience to the
aw and cons; miLion.
A Word to (lie Grand Army,
He closed as fol.ows: "And now, com
rades of the tirand Army ! the Keptibl'c,
surviving veterans of that gallant band
that from these mountains mid valleys
went out to defend the flag, I give you a
comrade's gr ct ing today. G.d hies you,
everyone; (Jed ljrgive that American in
this bright dj-y of prosperity and unity
who can begrudge to any one of you the
just dues ! your hard service. CJreat
cheering. I t me thank you again for
your most cm-dial greetiug and offer my
apology for having been betrayed by your
kindly faces into a more extended speech
than I had intended to make. Applause.
THE TELEGRAPHERS' ASSOCIATION.
It Will lie Secret and Protective In Two
Kansas City, Aug. 27. At the meeting
of commercial telegraphers which is to be
held in Kansas City, Sept. 2, a new pro
tective association, to be known as the
Commercial Telegraphers' association ot
the United States, will be organized. The
meeting will be held pursuant to a call
issued by the committee which for some
time has been agitating the formation of
such an order. The association will be a
secret society, and two degrees will be con
ferred. The first degree is to be called the
uniform rank, and will be conferred after
one year's good standing. The second de
gree will be conferred after ten years' good
standing, and will be called the mystic
The Last Probably Mot Least.
There will be sick and death benefits,
and last mentioned though pr obably not
the least of the objects is that the associa
tion will seek to protect its members
against any sweeping rednctions in wages
by telegraph corporations. The organ
zers of the movement have been active,
and correspondence has been going on for
some months past. Local onions bave
been forming in all the large cities, aud
there will be representatives of operators
here from Philadelphia, New York,' Bos
ton. Jersey City, Richmond, Nashville,
New Orleans, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Balti
more, Pittsburg, and Chicago. The- con
vention will commission six organizers
wbo will give their entire time to the in
terests of the new order.

Saginaw, Mich., Aug. 27. The steam
yucht Wapiti, owned by Hiram W. Sib
ley, the Rochester, N. Y., millionaire,
went on the rocks in Georgian bay Thurs
day nighr, and ail but two of those on
board were lost. The drowned were: Miss
Frances W. Durban, of New York; James
Kldridge, Saginaw, Mich., captain of the
yacht; Walter Henry, sailor, Saginaw,
Mich.; Mary Hall, Rochester, N. Y.; Jas.

aged 12, Rochester N. Y. Those who es
caped death were the fireman, name un
known, and the cook, George Sherman,
who stopped at Saginaw, Mich.
Identity of the Vnfortunates.
Hiram Watson Sibley, the owner of the
ill-fated yacht, is a son of Hiram Sibley,
the famous seed grower, of Rochester, N.
Y., who died four years ago, leaving a for
tune estimated at f 10,000,000. He married
Miss Margaret Harper, of New York, a
daughter of the late Fletcher Harper, of
the famous publishing house. Miss Marie
Pond was a daughter of Colonel N. P.
Pond, secretary and large stockholder in
the Democrat and Chronicle Publishing
company, of Rochester. Miss Mary Hall
has been the nurse of the Sibley family for
many years. Misa Durban was a guest of
lriven on the Rocks.
The yacht left Collingwood, Ont., for
this city Thursday afternoon. Soon after
its departure from Collingwood a terrific
storm came up, and, despite the efforts of
the crew the vessel was driven rapidly to
ward the shore by the gale. The craft
was driven on the rocks. She filled with
water and careened, throwing the crew
and passengers into the seething water.
Sherman says that not one on board had
any hope of escape, and how he himself
got out alvie he does not know.
Death Looked Them in the Face.
Sherman, in speaking of the wreck fur
ther, said: "I don't know how any of the
others died, except Captain Eldridge. lie
was clinging to a stanchion near me when
the vessel struck, and I think he went
overboard when I did. I don't know
whether the ladies were in the cabin or
not, but I think they were all on deck. I
know I heard Mr. Sibley's daughter cry:
'O papa, papa!' just before we went
ashore. There wasn't anybody making a
noise, for it seemed a sure thing that we'd
all got to die."
'Wore Oat for a Pleasure Trip.
The Wapiti left Saginaw Aug 17 for a
pleasure trip around the lakes, and its
crew, with the exception of Sherman, were
all residents of this city. After stopping
at several points along the coast the yacht
went to Mackinaw. Several days were
spent there, and then the party resumed
its cruise. Georgian bay was reached
without accident, and after steaming
about among the islands and along the
coast the yacht put into Collingwood,
Leaves a Widow and Child.
Captain Kldredge was married and

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cv.r2
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
" stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the tiuth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
