New York, Oct. 5. The national Demo
crat ic club convention Leld in the Academy
of Music yesterday was attended by dele
gates from every state in the Union, and
4,000 persons crowded the theatre when the
convention opened at 10:50. At this time
ex-President Cleveland entered and the
convention went wild for a few moments.
Chauncey F. Black called the convention
to order and made an address in which he
said: "Never before, within the memory
of this generation, has the Democratic
party gone into battle in behalf of princi
ples at once so vital and so clearly defined,
nd never before has such a magnificent
organization as this appeared to support
Tl'e Candidates and Issues.
'In Cleveland and Stevenson we follow
leaders who typify the spirit of American life
nd genius of American institutions, men
who in personal character and public serv
ice are not surpassed by the noblest states
men of any age. The issues of the cam
paign are plain. The Republican party
propows a government which, regardless
of the limitations of the constitution, shall
systematically employ the power of taxa
tion to seize the hard -earned sutistance of
the people, and turning it over bodily to a
favored few maintain an aristocracy of
toii-n wealth, equally spurious and ruth
less, as the only governing and only profit
ing class in this the boasted republic of the
Free Trade a Natural Right.
He then said that the Democratic party
stood ready and willing to have sufficient
taxation for the support of the government,
for thus far we may constitutionally go,
and no further. Beyond that tariff taxation
is robbery and Indefensible as plain confis
cation. Continuing upon this subject Mr.
Black said: "Freedom of trade, the natural
light of all men, for which men in every
age have been ready to struggle and to die,
for which our forefathers fought, and which
they believed they had won, is justly re
stricted in this land of constitutional liberty
only by the supreme necessities of our gov
ernment. Democracy would make it freer
freer, however, only as those necessities
Commends Orover's Letter.
It is hardly necessary to say that since
tlie inaugural address of the first Demo
crat ic president there never has been given
to the American people a more accurate
and luminous exposition of this fundamen
tal principle of our party and of the federal
constitution thim that contained in the
latest deliverance of the last and the next
Democratic president." He then denounced
the "force" bill as a wicked and deli)-rate
conspiracy and as he closed was greeted
with cheers for Cleveland whom he intro
duced as the orator who would welcome
the deletrates to New York and on the 4th
of March next be at Washington to wel-
come them there.
he has learned something as well as the
rest of us. All these fat porkers who he
left revelling in the trough while poor,
lean Democratic pigs stayed outside kicked
and ran like the devil into the deep sea to
defeat l.iin for a second election, and I don't
think he will play that game again." This
was greeted vith laughter and applause
aud the cheering wa renewed when he
added: -And 1 don't care who says to the
contrary he was just to the soldiers of the
t !f.in l'rocecdinffs.
Isolations passed by r.cgro Democrats
ugainst the "force" bill were read and
cheered. Cliauncey F. Black and lawrence
Uardiner were re-electod president and sec
vctry. Resolutions were passed thanking
Senator II til for his services, aud then
the colored PeR:racy was "recognized"
,by permitting l!obcrt li. Gilchrist, a negro,
to make a speech, which elicited much ap
plause aud laughter. At 4 p. in. the con
vention adjourned sine die. I-r.st night
the delegates attended a reception to Mr.
REID TALKS TO THE "HUB."
THE EX-PRESIDENT'S REMARKS.
He Also Is a Ieraorrat and Relieves In
. - Organization Slcdunls' Idea.
As Cleveland stepped to the front the
cheering tiegan again and looked like it
would never stop. It did stop, however,
and he lenan speaking when it broke out
again. He was Evidently - provoked, and
ftaid with some sternness: "Gentlemen, yon
must keep quiet; we have had noise
enough." Bnt it was not until President
Black had appealed for quiet that it was
obtained and the presidential candidate
proceeded with his speech. After a hearty
welcome to the state and city, he said be
was an unyielding and consistent Demo
crat, and continuing commented upon the
designs and purposes of the organization.
A Plea for Organization.
These were, he said, after reciting the
platform of the association the purest pa
triotism and loftiest aspirations of Ameri
can citizenship. The principle of collecting
only enough money by taxation to run the
government economically was the true
principle. He then said: "To those who
hope for lietter things this convention of
Democratic clubs is a bright promise of re
form. Unorganized good intentions and
idle patriotic aspirations cannot success
fully contend to mastery with the compact
forces of private interests and greed.
I am sure that I can say nothing lietter in
VWnn rr- i you than to wish that
your convention may be a most profitable
and encouraging one, and that at its con
clusion you may resume your places in your
borne organizations newly inspired to de
termined and zealous effort in the cause of
A Graceful Piece of Business.
There was more applause as Cleveland
retired up the stage, and then P. A. Col
lins, of Massachusetts, was made chair
man. He made a long speech which was
enthusiaHtically received. Then a graceful
act was done. Unanimously was passed a
resolution of sympathy with President
Harrison in his days of anxiety at the
. bedside of his wife, with the earnest hope
of all the delegates that Mrs. Harrison may
' recover her health. Letters of regret were
read from A- E. Stevenson and Governor
Flower. After a recess a set of standard
Democratic tariff reform resolutions was
presented and adopted.
MeGlnnis Raises a Laugh.
Mr. MeGlnnis was called on for A speech.
In the course of which he said that Cleve
land had not turned as many of the rascals
oat as be (McGinnis) thought be ought to
Jiave done. A delegate shouted: "He'll do
4t next time," and McGinnis retorted, "Oh,

! Boston, Oct. 5. Music hall and Far.ouil
' hall were both filled to overflowing last
I night when the Republicans ratified their
' state and national nominations with
! speeches by Hon. Wbitelaw Reid, Gover
' nor McKinley, Lieutenant Governor Haile
' and Hon. Rtger Walcott, the two latter
! being the nominees for governor and
lieutenant governor respectively. After a
: Hhort introductory speech, Hon.
AVhitelaw Reid was presented as the
first speaker of the evening. As be
stopped forward he was given a most flat
tering reception by the large audience,
which was quick to note the sharp points
of his adiues and best owe! frequent ap
i What the Tribune Editor Said.
' Reid leran by thanking his hearers f.-r
f lie reception tendered him. which he did
not presume to think personal, but simply,
accorded him as the representative of the
jrand old "party whose achievements he
briefly recorded. Continuing he said: "The
Republican party is now in power. The
country is peaceful, contented ami prosjier
ous beyond precedent, Phall we there
fore make a radical and sweeping change?
Up to Tuesday last it was no question at
. ail for our opponents. They openly and wit h-
out disguises, and without exceptions or
dissent, wanted a change as abrupt and as
important as can well be conceived. They
wanted to reverse the old revenue policy of
the government since 1S31 by a change
4 r.m the American idea, a protective tar
f;, to the modern F.nglish idea, a tariff for
Other Democratic Desires.
"That would mean a shock to business
mil a disaster to lalor that would exceed
anythintr this generation has seen. They
wanted to reverse the fiscal policy of the
government since isr.l by alvmdoning again
a part of the national prerogative of issuing
money breaking dow-n the best currency
this continent ever saw, the national bank
notes, to sulstitute for it the worst, state
notes and shin -pi asters. That would mean
a shock to all lianking and exchanges and
an inconvenience and loss to every citizen.
Our opponents denounce as a sham the
reciprocity treaties, by which we secured
new markets for our products in Central
America. South America and Europe, in
return for the free admission of sugar,
coffee and tea to your breakfast tables.
A Change in the Programme.
"That means, unless their profession of
principle is itself a sham the closing again
rf those new markets and a high revenue
tariff again on sugar, coffee and tea. That
the Democratic partv demanded these
changes everyliody knows. But something
has happened. Since last Tuesday they
have been -demoralized and almost on t he
run. It is obviously truthful to say that
Mr. Cleveland now acts toward the plat
form of his party as if he were afraid that
if be would venture to step on it he would
break through. The three vital points in
the platform are state lank currency, reci
procity and the tariff. On tw of them his
letter is alwolutely silent; while he writes
all around and about the third.
McKinley followed Reid with a speech
on the tariff, Haile and Walcott following
THE PARTY MAKES THE POLICY,
And Not the Candidate, Says the Republi
"But he does tell us that tariff reform is
still his purpose. That is to say, the busi
ness of the country must have no peace:
' everything must be once more unsettled
and the whole tariff must lie turned over
again to le tinkered by a congress of that
party w hi?h at Chicago declared by nearly
a two-thirds majority for the English as
against the American system, and pro
nounced protection unconstitutional. He
says that he wants to change things by re
forming the tanff. The party gives pledges
to the country as to the sort of reform its
concress not Mr. Cleveland, but its con-
frress would make; a tariff for revenue
only, any other lieing unconstitutional. He
tries to quiet alarm by saying free trade is
Hound by the Party Platform.
i "Certainly, England says the same thing,
and maintains most rigidly just the sort of
tariff Mr. Cleveland's platfonn demands
a tariff for revenue only. No qualifications
, or omissions can blind the eyes of voters to
I the fact that however much Mr. Cleveland
may regret it, as an honorable man he is
bound hand and foot to the platform of his
' party at Chicago, just as all the world
knows that he is today bound to the car of
triumphal Tammany in New York. Never
' since 1804 have our opponents disclosed so
plainly the real spirit that controls their
; majority, and their actual incapacity to
comprehend their country or their times."
Tbe "Force" Bill Issue.
Referring to the force" bill issue the
sneaker said: "The real question involved
is: Shall every citizen of the United States
lawiuuy euuueu lu vums uc w
vote and have his vote frarly counted?
The Renublicans say yes. The Democratic
platform practically says no. Mr. Cleve
land in tnls case nas tne courage to say
frankly ditto to his platform. There is
another Question .of real commanding in
terest to the entire country and especially
to the seaboard. Shall we restore our mer
chant marine and again possess the seas?
The Republican says enthusiastically yes,
and points to .the beginning; it nas made.
What does the Democratic platform say
about this? Nothing. What does Mr.
Cleveland say about it? Nothing.
' The Republican Position.
"There is one party in this campaign, Mr.
Chairman, that does not find it needful to
slander the country; that does not seek for
calamities and does not read its own defeat
in the general prosperity. It stands every
where for a protective tariff and wants no
mistake about that. It sta-ids for honest
money and wants no mistake about that.
It stands for equal rights under the law, for
reciprocity, for revived shipping, for Amer
ican wages and for America all the time.
And finally it challenges the verdict of the
American people ov the character, the abil
ity and the safe and brilliantly successful
administration of Benjamin Harrison."
NOVELTY IN RAILWAY SUITS.
Populihts Complain of Discrimination In
Rates to Conventions.
Washington, Oct. 5. A complaint of
unjust discrimination in passenger rates
was yesterday filed with the interstate com
merce commission. The complainant is T.
V. Cator, of San Francisco. The defend
ants are the Southern Pacific and the
Union Pacific railway companies. The
complainant alleges that w hen the Repub-'
lican and Democratic national conventions
were held in June last at Minneapolis and
Chicago respectively delegates from the
state of California were carried over the
railways of the defendants from San Fran
c:sco and other points in California at an
agreed reduced rate, amounting, it Is al
leged, to aliout one-half of the regular
rates charged for travel from San Francis
co to Omaha.
Made 'Km Pay Full Rates.
When in July last the People's party
held their convention at Omaha to nomi
nate candidates for the presidency and vice
presidency, aud the delegates from Califor
nia to the Omaha convention applied to the
same lines of railways for the same rates
that had leen granted to the Republican
and Democratic delegates from C-iiifoiT!-,
they were refused any reduction whatever
and were charged and oomj- lied to paj tiie
usual and full rates. It i-i ;il. alleged th-.t
the numlxr of delegates from California, to
the Omaha convention w.ts greater t!..i
