Woodsdalr Island. O., Sept. 12. The
Republican campaign opened here Satur
day afternoon with an immense crowd of
people gathered together from all points
along the Miami valley, who came to listen
to speeches from Hon. Whitelaw Reid and
other prominent leaders of the party. Mr.
Reid began by saying that this meeting
opened the campaign in the old Ohio way.
He referred to the rock-ribbed Democracy
of this (Butler) county, and t aid a tribute
to t he late Lewis D. Campbell. He eulo
gized the old Miami university, which, he
said, "taught not merely letters, but
patriotism," and speaking of its eminent
al-.inini, said that Hartison led them all.
He con tinned: "The Democrats ore
greatly troubled. They say that Harrison
is a cold man. There is scarcely a doubt
but that he does casta chill upon them.
The ice cart at the White House door will
disappear from Democratic campaign cam
paign literature when they find it suits
50, 000,000 people to have a president wao
doesn't play the demagogue and pretend
to be the bosom friei-d of every man he
Contrasting the Two Parties.
"I am not here to-day to discuss Presi
dent Harrison's administration or the
principles on which bis party confidently
appeals to the country for his re-election.
That task is undertaken by two from
among those younger sons of Ohio who
have of late so borne her standard to the
front. The Republican party under this
administration has matured, enforced and
magnificently vindicated a sound protec
tive tariff, in the interest of our own coun
try and our own countrymen. Our op
ponent wish to destroy it. We have
coupled with it a s.-htna which gives you
a free break f a-. t table and at the same
time opens the best markets for the pro
duce of our farms and our factories. Our
opponents threaten to destro- it to shut
the markets what tiiey call our sham re- ;
ciprocily lias opened, if not also to tax
again our breakfast table by restoring the
revenue taritt duties or cpuee, tea ana
sugar. I J
'Matchless National i:itukiag System."
"We have niaiutai: e i that matchless
national bank system originated by that
great Obioan, S. P. Chase. Our opponents
wish to destroy it and go back to state
banks and shinplasters. We point to the
prosperity of the country, to the satis
factory management of its affairs at home
and abroad, to the successful workings of
the McKinley bill and the utter discredit
that has overtaken those who prophesied
its disastrous results. To the liberal re
wards of labor and the enforcement of the
laws for the equal security of all
other citizens; to the wise, clean, strong
and honest administration, and we ay
that under such circumstances it is ot
good business policy or good common
sense to make a change and begin experi
ments. Our opponents want a change
right away, and warititbad.M
Refers to Perry's" Victory.
After a eulogy of the president Reid said
he would not attempt to discuss Ohio is
sues, as McKinley and Foraker would
fully attend to that. He closed with a
reference that the day was the date of Per
ry's victory and that memorable dispatch:
'We have met the enemy and they are
arable, with McKinley and Foraker and
Irave old John Sherman at your head, the
s,ns t'f Ohio will run up again that old
btttle flag. 'Don't give uptheship.' WL-n
th? day is ended may the victors send the
grandson the words Perry sent to t'.ie
grandfather, 'We have met the enemy and
the are oiiis.'"
PREDICTIONS OF THE DEMOCRACY.
Uuv.iMcKiulry Say that Party Is a Iis-
TheVext speaker was Gov. McKinley.
He begnn his address by saying that no
political party can long bold public con
fidence hicii bases its claims to confi
dence ol trie disappointments of the
people. This, he said, had been the case
with the Leniocratic party for more than
thirty years. It has been predicting
failures of the Republican policies since
18til. The armor and armament of the
leaders of the Democratic party in 1861
was that the war was a failure as a means
of settling the difliculties then existing.
Then they predicted that paper money
could not be issued and kept afloat; that
the bonds or tlie government could not
be sold, and after whey were sold they pre
dicted that the government would not re
deem them. I
The Platform of 1864.
Later came the celebrated declaration of
the Democratic national platform of 1864,
that the war for the supremacy of tle gov
ernment was a failure. And later still
came the prediction-, that the government
could not resume specie payments. So it
has been throuitb alftbvse years, the Dem
ocratic party has beet) predicting the fail
ure of Republican policies until now, when
they declare that the tariff of 1890, enacted
by a Republican congress, is a failure, and
that it will bring distress upon the Amer
ican peopie. ,
The Late Democratic Moose.
Another thing about the Democratic
party is that when it does get into power
it is a disappointment, and to honest and
well-meaning Democrat a humiliating
disappointment. The campaign of 1890
was a pile of woes which were to follow
the doings of the Fifty-first con Kress, and
notably the tariff law. They won 6n the
prediction of those woea by alarming the
people and pledging themselves to tear
op, root and branch, all thia aril legisla
tion. -What have they doner he, asked.
and proceeded to answer by aTinir that
Ex-Governor Foraker then addressed the
meeting. He said: "I shall content myself
with a brief statement of only the princi
pal reasons why every Republican in Ohio
and the nation should zealously and faith
fully support Benjamin Harrison. His
record is much the better. Both he and
Cleveland commenced political life before
the war. They began, and have ever-since j

Ka'ngj of the President. I
"He has been identified with all the il-j
lustrious achievements that have made
history of the world. He has been thej
friend, supporter and associate of all thej
great statesmen and great heroes whoi
have wrought for our country during th9j
last thirty years. He has entertained he j
loitiest ana purest sentiments mai ever
found expression in American politics.
His party has never risen so high that he
has not stood on the same plane with it.
He has boep constantly and zealously on
the right side of every great question of
our day ani generation. His record Is
resplendent with good deeds and great
r'oraker's Opinion of Cleveland.
"It has been made in spite of the con
stant opposition of the Democratic party.
In a 1 this opposition Cleveland has be
longed and adhered to that party. He has
no share whatever in the great victories
that have been won in either the field or
forum. His whole life and all his political
affiliations and experiences were such as to
prepare him for the work of vetoing pen
sion bills, returning rebel flags, advocating
free trade, and making war generally upon
the patriotism and prosperity of his coun
try when he became president. It was not
to the credit of the American people that
he was made president once. It would be
inexcusable to make him president twice."
Other Speakers Heard. j
The remainder of Governor Foraker's
speech was devoted to a discussion of the
tariff, reciprocity, state banks and hon
est elections. Then brief addresses were
delivered by Mrs. J. Ellen Foster; ex
Representatives H. Clay Evans, of Ten
nessee, and Allen, of Michigan; General
Houston, of Kentucky; Turner of Ten
nessee, and W. H. Farnham, of Cincin
nati. It was after 5 o'clock when the
STEVENSON CLOSES IN INDIANA.
Speeches at Greencastle, Itloomington,
and Terre Haute.
Teuke Haute, Ind., Sept. 32. Saturday
was the last day of Stevensou's pilgrimage
thiough central and western Indiana. The
vice presidential candidate made two
speeches on bis way down here ftom Bra
zil, and a third exposition of Democratic
doctrine in this city in the evening. The
first place in which he spoke was Green
castle, which he reached before 9 o'clock in
the mcrninc. He spoke in Court House
square to abut 2,500 people, R. E Wi:i
iamson, an ex-Republican, presiding over
the meeting. Stevenson's speech was sim
ilar in matter and line of argument to
those formerly delivered. At GreencasUe
Junction, Cloverdale, Quincy, Gosport,
and other stations along the route people
were gathered on the station platfoiui,
and the candidate held informal recep
tions at each point.
Proceedings at Itloomington.
At Bloomiugton there were 2,000 people
awaiting him and after takiug dinner
with Judge Mier he was escorted to the
Court House square and was warmly
greeted at the start and while he enunci
ated Democratic doctrine. To show trie
beneficial effect of free trade he instanced
the cheapness of quinine since the duty
was taken off. After the speech he took
the train for this city where he duly ar
rived. A meeting was held in the wig
wam, which was crowded with about 3, JO
people with many outside. He was es
corted to the wit? warn bv a torchlight
He concluded: -In a cause as hon-! procession.
The Speech at Terre Haute.
In the speech Stevenson dwelt at greater
length than usual on the tariff and its
effect on wages, there being a number of
workingmen in the audience. He said
that wages were higher in Colorado and
California than in the balance of the
conntrv and that showed that tariff had
no i-fleet to benefit the workingman, as if
it had that effect wages would be as hirh
m Maine a in California. Ihe issues
were a high protective tariff ou one side
and tariff reform and reduction of the
cost of the necessities of life on the other.
Senator Yoorhees occupied a seat on t ue
platform, but did not speak. When the
meeting wns over Stevenson left for
