Comment and CriticiHms on Cleveland's

columns all sorts of incendiary appeals
anil bogus information in regard to this
alleged force bill. There hr.s never lieen a force
hill which was endorsed ly the Republican
party, and the information furnished oa
that subject is of the charrctcr of the cable

the imaginary discoveries in tlie geography
of Mars. The issue is forced, fictitious and
fraudulent. The Republican jiarty will

A Cireat Attendance.
Xew York, Sept. 29. The first big Re
publican meeting of the campaign was
held last night at Cooper Union. The news
that ex-Senator Warner Miller, ex -Senator
Piatt, Chauiicey M. Dcpew and Whitelaw
Reid were to speak attracted a large crowd.
The speakers arrived at aliout 8:30 o'clock.
escorted by the Lincoln Pioneer corps of
the Kighth assembly district. Their recep
tion was most enthusiastic. Pepew en
tered first, followed by Reid. Miller, Piatt,
Marshal .Tocobus, William IJrookfiehl, Kli-
hu Root, anil other notable men in the
party. As soon as they were seated Rrook
lielil. chairman of the Republican state
committee, stepped to the front and pre
sented as the Am-siding oflicvr the lion.
Thomas C. Piatt. Piatt was received with
Tffot a FrodiETnl Son.
As soon as the applause subsided Piatt
thankiil the audience for its warm recep
tion and said he must protest against ljeing
stigmatized as a prodigal son. He was a
. v.blii'an and never expected to le any
thing else. He then referred to the lively
contest which took place at the last conven
tion leiecn the friends of the different
aspirants for the presidential nomination.
id. continuing said: Only two conven
ons have occured since the republic was
founded in which the fiercest strife has not
!een engendered and these were the conven
tions which nominated for the second time
the father of his country, George Washing
ton, and the savior of his count rv. Vlvsses
Grant. Applause. The Republicans who
supMirted the different candidates at
Minneapolis have nothing for which to
Tri!itte to Itluine and lcKinlcy.
'Any one of them is qualified to rule this
nation in the darkest hour of trial or in
the golden day of its prosperity. rP"
plause. t'ontcmplatp the illustrious trio
and mark well these remarkable men.
There was the champion of t he great prin
ciple of protection to American industries,

and never found wauling: a Republican,

of a ll.imascas hl.-ulc. Ohio's favorite sou
and governor. Y:!!;;:i .McKinlcv. Jr.
Applause. Grandly as ever loomed up
in the list the stalwart form of the man
whose name has stirred the hearts ,.f mill-
'lis of Republicans throughout the laud as
tnev have l.ccn inspired liv no man of ins
generation. You anticipate his name and
I need hardly mention .lames G. ISlaine. of I
Maine. Apilaus:-.'j j

"Rut a majority of the eonveui ion decided j
that he who four years ago rescued the ii;t- i
turn tiiim Democratic mi-rule, who during '
1 he years of his incimihcney hail so faith- J
fully bori:e the Republican standard, and
whose administration had so signally pro- j
moled national prosperity, should had us
again to victory, and llenjaniin Harrison, i
of Indiana, became the Republican nonii-
igh sounding his
title. The senate of Xew York has been
stolen from the electors of this state and
those who commited the crime have lieen
rewarded by high oflicial station." Piatt
was cheered vociferously as lie closed.
Chairman Rrookfiehl then read a list of
rice presidents including Ixvi P. Morton,
IJejiew, Kvarts, Rliss, Choate, Pic-rpont
Morgan, and others, and introduced Klihu
ltoot, who read a set of resolutions setting
forth that the Republicans of Xew York
declare "'their devotion to the principles,
their pride in the record, and their conti
nence in the future of the Republican par
ly; reciting the wise laws honestly and
Ably administered under Republican rule;
the advantages accruing to the country un

reciprocity, and contrasting the definite
and certain presentation of the policy of
the administration and the m suits of Re

the vague and meaningless gencralit ies by
which the Democratic candidate seeks to
commend himself. The resolutions were

this was the opjort unity of his life for si

tion, and thought that t henuest ion whe t her
Vie country would abandon the Wnctits
.;crcof depended much on whether the Re
publican of Xew York did the ir duty. He
lielicved they would, and urged them to
justify his U-Iicf. At the close of Reid's
seech Plat I introduced- Warner Miller, re
marking that there was harmony every
where in the party. -Xolmdy tonight is
outside the breast works." Miller made an
extended speec h, and after other short ad
dresses the meet ing ailjoiiriicd with cheers
for the ticket.

"Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Hill agree ia de
claring that protection is a cheat, but
neither of them dares indorse absolute free
trade, so they are lxith comiH-lled to repu
diate the plat form and straddle the issue.
In his letter of acceptance Mr. Cleveland
lias lie-en forced to wrestle with a condi
tion, not a theory, viz: he has been forced
to spit upon the platform and expectorate

arc other conditions that are not theories
to which he neglected to address himself.
For instance one of the vital cpuestions,
which cannot be ignored, and which is

condition which was eniiwidicd in the re- j

settled the question whether Peck should
be crucified to appease the wrath of the
free trade Mugwumps and thus lc put on
tlie list of martyrs to the holy cause of pro
tection. He ba.- been driven to embrace
the tariff ideas of his arch enemy and to
humilintingly adopt the imaginary issue of
the journalistic statesman who has stig
matized him as "a stuffed prophet." In
the expressive language of that same Dem
cratic oracle, 'the tariif part of Mr. Cleve
land's letter is full of carefully considered
maxims, and is as elastic as caoutchouc
Laughter and applause.
A Kaji nt the Mugwumps.
"For the future the party of Andrew
Jackson, John C. Calhoun, James Bucha
nan, and Dnvid K Hill may lie considered
as relieved from the necessity and trouble
of holding natioual conventions. A self
constituted committee of all all-wise Mug
wumps can be relied upon to furnish the
candidate, and their candidate will never
fail to be a platform unto himself." (Laugh
