Chicago, Sept. 2. The Democratic "cam
paign of education" in the west wan fairly
opened yesUrday when Don M. Dickinson,
chairman of the campaign committee of
the national committee, met the rep
resent a Lives of seven western and
northwestern states and apian of campaign
was laid out. The seven states in which
the Dernocracyexpects to push the fight are
Illinois, Michigan, the two Dakotas, Min
nesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Contrary to
the general expectation Dickinson will not
be in command of the western forces. . lie
has more important work to perform in
New York, and will leave the western
campaign in the hands of Cable of Illinois
and AVall of Wisconsin.
Adlul's Partner to Help Manage.
Dickinson's proxy as a member of the
subcommittee will probably be given to
either Dauiel J. Campau. chairman of the
AiichiKan Democratic state central com
mittee and member of the national com
mittee from that state o,r Jas. S. Ewing.
Adlai E. Stevenson's law partner, who
arrived in the city yssterday to take part
in the conference. Ewing brought with
him the personal wishes of Stevenson that
he (Ewing) be given a place in the man
agement of the campaign. The chances
are that Ewing will succeed Dickinson,
inasmuch a Campau already has his
hands fall attending to affairs in Michi
Dickinson an Enthusiast.
The members of the national committee
present or represented by proxy were:
Michael Doran, of Minnesota: W. C.
Leistekow, of North Dakota; James M.
"Woods.of South Dakota; J. J. Richardson,
of Iowa; Daniel J. Campau, of Michigan;
Ben Cable, of Illinois, and E. C. Wall, of
itsconsin. The conference was informal.
Dickinson is an enthusiast on the subject
of western headquarters, and said that as
chairman of the campaign committee he
would see to it that the western headquar
ters get all the assistance necessary from
the east. Whitney, Smalley, Quincy and
Senatois Gorman, ll.nisom and Brice, he
said, were all heartily in favor of pushing
the fight in the ncl, and would cordially
co-opt rate with the western committee.
STEVENSON AT VINCENNES-
Grand Democratic Rally Opening
Indiana C .utpalgn.
VlKCKNXF.8. lad., Sept. 2. Five thou
sand people .it leu Jed the Democratic
meeting in the Court House square here
yesterday, and the whole afternoon was
occupied by the speakers, who held the
attention of the crowd to the last. Hon.
M. J. Black called the assembly to order
and introduced as chairman Hon. Isa.io
P. Gray, who was loudly cheered. He
spoke briefly of the tariff, and in conclu
sion introduced Hon. A. E. Stevenson,
saying: "I have the honor of introducing
one of the best men for whom you have
been offered the privilege of casting your
Totes. The reason why I say that is. he
beat me for the nomination for that ofhVe,
and I do not think you will charge i:ie
with egotism when I say that it takes an
exceedingly good man to beat me." Ap
plause. Stevenson Returns the Compliment
Stevenson was warmly greeted, and re
marked in b ginning: ''Pardon me for say
ing that I did not beat my friend Governor
Gray, but the Democracy of the United
States desired only to save him for the
first place in the next presidential con
test." Applause. Stevenson's speech
was a repetition of those at Bloomington
and Sedalia, touching on the tariff and
brieflv on the "force" bilL He thought
there was as good reason for giving the
corn growers of Knox county a bonus as
the sugar growers of Louisiana. He closed
with an appeal for the people to stand by
Cleveland, whose principle in action was
"a public office is a public trust." The
speaker was liberally applauded.
Toorb.es Takes the Platform.
After a speech by Hon. Claude Mat
thews, candidate for covernor, principally
on the tariff. Senator Voorhees took the
floor and received au ovation. It wns
Voorhees' fiist speech of the campaign.
He spoke of his usual brilliancy and was
frequently applauded. His remarks were
in part on the tariff and his arguments on
that sul.ject were directed to the Repub
licans in office. He also discussed the
silver question vigorously from the stand
point of the Democratic platform. When
he had finished speaking the crowd dis
persed will, cheers for Cleveland and
Stevenson, Matthews and Voorhees. In
the evening there was a torchlight parade
followed by another mass tueetiua at
court house rqn-ire addressed by Repre
sentatives Bretz and Fithian, Hon. JoL..

HE DEFENDS THE "COMBINE."
A Pensylvania Man in the Social Science
Congress Wlint He Says.
Saratoga. N. Y., Sept. 2. Yesterday
was devoted to the department of juris
prudence by the American Social Science
association. A remarkable and most im
portant paper was' read by C. La Rue
Munson, of Williamsport, Pa., upon the
"Reading Leases and the Great Coal Com
bine." Speaking of the quick growth of
the Reading railroad he gave these fig
ures: "The Reading system now controls
5.5S3 miles of railroad, traverses a terri
tory containing nearly 10,000,000 of popu
lation; by means of 1.71S locomotives and
113,2)6 cars annually carries 40,000,000 of
passengers, moves 50,000,000 of ton of
freight and earns about SoT.OOO.OOO; while
with its afliliated companies it has a
capital and indebtedness of $511,000,000
and employs Si.ltOO wage earners, among
whom it annually distributes &37.00J.000.
Railway Consolidation Commended.
"These are days of great aggregations of
capital and titanic financial and commer
cial combinations. That which may be
accomplished by consolidation and asso
ciations of reciprocal interests caunot be
obtained through individual efforts, how
ever well they may be directed or skill
fully conducted. This is the key-note of
our national organization, and is the
mainspring l y which our nation by union
of states has advanced to her present com
manding position under the family of na
tions. America's history can
point to no one clement in the story of
her progress more productive of national
benefit than the consolidation of her rail
way interests. 1 here has been no excep
tion to the invariable rule that the com
bination, or in other words, the strength
ening of her railways has resulted in a
benefit to her people.
No Monopoly or Extortion.
"It is absurd to assume that the effect of
the Reading leases will be to extort un
reasonable prices for anthracite coal, by
creating a monopoly driving out all com
petition; for it must not be forgotten that
nearly 20.000.0u0 of tons, or about one-half
the market, are annually mined by inter
ests far from identical with the Reading,
and certainly in no manner within its con
trol, while yearly 100,000,000 tons of bitu
minous coal, raised from mines and areas
containing deposits of incalculable ton
nage, stand at the door of the market. nn-
pared to meet anthracite prices raised
beyond fair returns to its operators."

A Royal Profeiaor Found Dead.

BILLY MEYER THE PUGILIST.
The "IllinoiN Cyclone" Starts for the
Chicago, Sept. a "Billy" Meyer, the
"Illinois cyclone," arrived in Chicago from
Streator yesterday morning and left for
the Crescent City at 2 p. m. He said that
he never felt better in his life and certain
ly looked fit for a fight. His face bore the
maiks of vigorous sparring with h'.s
trainers and looked hard enough to stand
auy hammering McAuliffe can give it.
Meyer had exceedingly little to say about'
his coming battle. He declared he was
in better light ing trim now and feet better
generally than he ever did before, but
Would not say whether he could whip Mc
Auliffe. No "Blower" in This Crowd.
His traiuers were equally reticent about
the possible result of the fight. The Meyer
party to New Orleans included the two
trainers. A'f Kennedy, his backer, and
young Eddy Meyer. They travel in a
special cur and will reach New Orleans to
night at 7 o'clock. Meyer will do
but little work, as he is down to proper
weight 13S pounds. There is not a great
deal of betting in Chicago on the fights in
New Orleans. The local sports seem to
favor Sullivan and Myer.
