Alliance Men on Top lu Sooth Caro
lina. WAVERLV, la., Sept. 1. There was a
great throng of Republicans here yester
day ou the occasion of the opening of the
campaign by Senator Allison. He will
make but few speeches this campaign,
probably, because he is a commissioner of
the United States to the monetary confer
ence which will probably meet soon at
London. The senator went over the whole
of the issues, and spoke for three hours. A
goodly portion of his speech was devoted
to a comparison of the work done by a
Republican and Democratic congress. -Kndorres
"Czar" Tom Reed.
Referring, to the work waiting to be
done on March 4, ISSt, he said: "The Re
publican congress, elected with the presi
dent, performed faithfully its great part
in this work. It established, not soon to
be overthrown, the principle that the
majority of the house, for the time being,,
is responsible to the country for needed
legislation. This principle established, the
bouse practically took hold of the great
ueetions pressing upon the country for
consideration. Our tariff and internal re
venue laws, yielding far beyond the neces
sities of the government, called for re
vision, both parties having twice prom
ised such revision in their platforms.
Tariff Kevixion and the Hanks.
"Many of our industries, enfeebled by
the sham competition of other countries
where labor was much cheaper, required
some additional fostering care in order to
survive the conflict. The continual with
drawal of national bank notes from our
circulation made necessary new provisions
for increasing the currency of the country
commensurate with our growing wants.
Our new navy, in the course of authoriza
tion and construction, needed large appro
priations for the continuance of the work
of construction. Our sea coast cities, de
fenseless, needed appropriations to begin
their proper defense.
Pension and Trnnt" Legislation.
"The old soldiers of the republic, en
feebled by disease and old age or broken
down by misfortune, had a just claim
upon the government they bad served, for
Some just pension legislation to aid them
in their declining years. This justice re
quired that our pension laws should be
liberalized and enlarged for their benefit.
Th growing aggre.si.us of capital com
b Ding in the form of trusts to control pro
duction and distribution, required that
laws should be p:!-sd to the extent of the
jurisdiction of congress for their repres
sion." Other Matters Wanting Attention.
He referred td land law revision, court
reform and relief, agricultural colleges,
payment of the direct tax, necessity of in
ternal improvements, especially in the
south to stimulate its growing industries,
and c'her matters that asked for solution
at the hands of the Fifty-first congress,
and said they had all, including those
mentioned first, been proviJed for wisely
and well, on the whole. Many of the mat
ters finally disposed of had been hauglag
on for years.
LARGE APPROPRIATIONS NECESSARY.
ample time to consider it, it slept the
sleep of death. This carefully considered
and well-matured bill of the senate
formed the basis of the law of Oct. 1,
1890." The senator concluded his address
by calling attention to the importance of
the Republican party regaining control of
the national house of representatives.
"The house," he said, "has always been and
always will be the favorite arena for the
display of the most brilliant talent and
for the origination of great measures of
public policy affecting the public weal."
He spoke in terms of the highest praise
of each of the candidates of the party.
The senator said that the Fifty-second
house did no better than the Fiftieth, and
generally arraigned the Democratic rec
ord. He was enthusiastically applauded
all through the speech.
HARRISON AT OPHIR FARM.
Be Spends a Day Conferring; with Re
"White Plains, X. Y., Sept. 1. Presi
dent Harrison spent a busy day yesterday
as the guest of his political running mate.
He arrived in White Plains shortly before
10 o'clock in the morning over the Harlem
branch of the Xew York Central road. He
left Loon Lake Tuesday afternoon iti com
pany with Private Secretary Halford and
Executive Clerk Tibbett, and was joined
at Mott Haven yesterday morning by Rus
sell 15. Harrison. Several hundred persons
were gathered at the little station here
when the presidential special came to a
halt there. Foremost in the gathering
were Mr. Reid and Chairman Carter, of
the Republican nr.tional committee. The
president was warmly greeted by Reid and
Carter, and three cheers were giren by the
citizens assembled, after which the party
drove to Ophir Farm.
It Was the President's Ilnsy Day.
At the farm the busy day commenced.
The president bnd a talk with Carter,
Chairmau Bloomfield, of the state cam
paign coniiiiittee, and Chairmau Hackett,
of the state executive committee. He
also had a long conference with Senator
Aldrich regarding the tariff portion of his
letter of acceptance and the senator made
a few suggestions. The letter will make
about 6,000 words and will be ready it is
expected for publiciiion Monday morning.
An Important Caller.
The most important call, and one of
most political significance, was Thos. C.
Piatt. He spent a long time with the
president, and it is understood gave in his
thorough adhesion to the ticket, and will
work with vigor for its success Another
visitor was ex-Senator Spooner, of Wis
consin. . The president left Ophir Farm at
9:30 p. ui. yesterday for Xew York and
A Brief Speech to the People.
Before the president left the farm about
300 residents of White Plains and the
neighborhood collected with a brass band
on the lawn in front of the residence, and
after an introduction by Reid the presi
dent addressed them. He said nothing of
politics, simply refering to the fact that
he must return at once to Washington, to
show how uncertain a president's vaca
ALL OF THEM RENOMINATED.
Th Outcry Against the "It llion Dollar"
Continuing the senator said that many
of these lawsriquired large appropriations
for their execution, notably the pension
law, and provisions for improvement of
rivers and harbors, and the law granting
bounty to the producers of sugar. The
appropriations for rivers and harbors and
for sugar production, received warm ap
proval in the south, and their cry is still
for more. He did not think the appro
priations of the last session of congress
were excessive, but they served to demon
strate that there was no basis for the out
cry against the "billion dollar" congress.
This was a great growing country aud
needed large appropriations.
Democrats Charged with Inaction.
He then criticised the Democratic houe
for inaction. Said he: "How marked is
the contrast in comparison with the four
years of President Cleveland, and wUh
Democratic control in the house. They
dealt with none of these pressing and com
plex questions, t hen as pressing as later,
only in a way to show how not to do it.
The currency question was as pressing
then as later. They did nothing. Our
revenues were excessive then as later; in
violation of their promises made in 1884
they allowed an entire congress to pass
Th Mills Hill and Its Effect.
"During the second congress of Presi
dent Clex-eland's term, with another elec
tion pressing bard, at the end of July,
l&SS, about the time congress should have
adjourned, they sent to the senate the
Mill's bill, free trade in its tendency, left
it a doubtful question whether, under it
the revenue wt.uld le diminished or in
creased. Under its provisions many in
dustries, now the text for free trade argu
ments, were left undisturbed, many were
grta' ly crippled, others wholly destroyed.
Its provisions dealt kindly with every
southern interest and harshly with
many northern interests, the general
effect beiug to. tear down and not to
J . And Its Final Fate.
, "Though sent thus late to the senate.
Instead of adjourning, as was hoped, so
pressing was the necessity for reducing
revenue, the senate remained in session
fcntil Oct. 20, hoping to complete the bill
before adjournment. The bill was re
formed so as to reduce revenue and pre
serve our industries. Compelled to ad
journ without completing the bill, it
was taken op on the second day after the
sonrening of the next session and returned
to. the house six weeks before the expira
tion of congress. In the Loose, with
A Novelty in State Conventions at Mil
waukee. Milwaukee, Sept. 1. The state Demo
cratic convention was a novelty of its
kind, in that there was but one vote on
the whole state ticket, and that was on the
question, "Shall the present officers be re
nominated by acclamation?" The vote
was a unanimous "aye," and was car
ried amid great enthusiasm. The platform
is a standard Democratic utterance, and
was also adopted without dissent.
They All Made Short Speeches.
It was moved and carried that the nomi
nees be escorted to the conveution hall
and in due time they made their appear
ance, and each addressed the convention
briefly and expounded Democratic senti
ments vigorously. At their appearance the
convention rose and cheered uutil the roof
