Sedalia, Mo., Aug. 31. There were
S.500 men in the Democratic parade yester
day afternoon and 10,0(50 persons gathered
about the Brand from which the throng
was addressed. The principal speech was
made by Hon. Adlai E. Stevenson, who
devoted the greater part of it to a de
nunciation of the "force" bill and a re
cital of the doings of "carpet-bag" govern
ments in southern states during recon
struction. He closed with a repetition of
his speech on the tariff made at Blooming
ton, Ills. He was loudly cheered all
through the speech.
A Statement of Personal Nature.
Toward the close of his speech Mr. Ste
venson said: "One statement that is per
rnnal. My attention has been called to an
article in a Republican newspaper here
concerning the manner of the treatment
of coal miners in the city of Bloomington,
Ills. I want to say that the man who
made that statement stated what was ab
solutely fulse. I dislike to refer to things
of a personal character, but I will say this,
that during the time I have been president
of that company there has never been a
a strike. Applause.
Alwuji Pnid Wnges In Cash.
"More than that. Durinsr the twenty
years that coal company has had an exist
ence no pay day has ever passed that every
man was not paid his waes in full in
money applause; no tax store or any
thing of that kii;d has been there. And
more than that. When 1 came bark from
the Chicago convention the coal miners
came to my residence, ail of them. They
delivered an address to me in which they
thanked me for the kindness which had
been shewn tl.em, and for the fact t hat
they had always been treated justly and
kindly by myself and other members of
Dug llt nios Out of the Shaft.
"And more than that. If you will take
the trouble to visit that city you will find
mora than lifty liitle cot Uiyes, homes of
the men who have pai.l for their homes
out of the c.Trnir.gs out of that
coal shaft. Avpiause.j I dislike to
refer to things tl:nt are personal, but I
say that in justice to myself and in justice
to the great party which has selected me
as one of its candidates for office."
The Disputed Article.
The news; :;; r r.nicle referred to in the
above appeared in the Sj-ialia Gazette
yesterday rrd was copied from the
Streator (111.) Free Press. It was written
by Patrick M. MeCabe, and charges
Mr. Stevenson with breaking up the
miners' union iu 1873 by methods he con
sidered tyruuuicai and unjust.
A to the Silver Oncstion.
The speaker referred to the silv: r ques
tion by declaring that Clevelami's out
spoken opposition to free silver entitled
him to the respect of every honest man
that is, because it was au honest opinion
expressed regardless of its inflm-'ice on
his political future. The speaker did not
ayree with Cleveland. lie (Stevenson)
Could see nothing sacred in the ratio now
iu force. l!ut he believed that free coin
age would bring the dollars of silver aud
gold to parity of value. He was not afraid
of European gover inents dumping Their
silver on our chores. He had seen the pre
dictions of the most expert financiers come
to nothing. He stood on the national
platform as to that subject.
Proceedings in the Evening:.
This closed the afternoon speeches. In ;
the evening the streets were brilliantly ii- j
In in i nut ed by means of gas standards with
