White Plains, X. Y., Oct. 15. .Tames
Blaine mode a speech last evening, lie
5ixke earnestly and with much of his old
time vigor. His speech wasn't advertised
and was entirely impromptu and made to
a gathering of citizens of White Plains and
the surrounding villages who called at
Ophir Farm to serenade the ex-secretary.
As soon hb he heard that they were coming
Blaine said he would speak to them. There
were a nnmlier of callers at the farm yes
terday, among them Chauncey M. Depew.
11. C. Kerens and Patrick Egan, and they
all dined together.
Like an English Hustings.
The gathering of residents was like an
English hustings. When the word went
round that it was proposed to serenade
Blaine the whole country side hitched up
Its teams and came to Ophir Farm from all
directions in carriages, omnibusses,
wagons and buckboards. Many ladies
were present, and the meeting represented
every walk of life. The lawn in front of
Reid's residence was covered with people,
and the scene was enlivened by a torch
light jirocession of the colored Republican
club of White Plains and the Portchester
Republican club with a band.
Blaine Takes the Platform.
When the audience was gathered Blaine
stepped out to the porch, and was greeted
with cheers. He said:
"I should le churlish indeed if I did not
make response to your call after you have
tome several miles to this beautiful home
of Mr. Reid. At the same time I am not
making speeches in the canvass, for reasons
well known to my friends and which have
no connection whatever with politics. Gen
erally administrations in a presidential
election are challenged on account of the
condition of the business of the country,
and I submit that the Republican adminis
tration of President Harrison can trium
phantly endure such a tt. I doubt if,
since the government of the United States
was instituted, anybody, at any time, has
seen what we call 'good times' so general,
taking in so many interests and spreading
prosix-rity throughout the whole domain
The Manufactures of Ootham.
"I might appeal to Xew York if the city
has ever passed a season more satisfactory
in financial respects than for the past two
years, or in which the general effect on cap
ital and labor has been more prosperous.
The opponents of the Republican party
always represent Xew York as a commer
cial city and not a manufacturing one, and
yet the product of the manufactures of this
city alone is $700,000,000. Anything that
would cripple that great interest would
cripple the metropolis seriously and to a
very hurtful extent. More men in' Xew
York get their living from pursuits pro
tected by the tariff than from any other
Where Most of the Men Work.
fcI know Xew York is t he center of our
commerce, the great entrepot of our trade;
bnt all the men engaged in commercial
affairs in and altont Xew York are smaller
in numbers than the men engaged in man
ufactures. Xor if yon go west, where the
Democrats this year are making considera
ble effort and doing a vast amount of
Ixiasting, will you find it different? Take
Michigan, Ohio, Indiana or Illinois and the
products of manufactories are greater in
pecuniary amount than the products of ag
riculture in these four great agricultural
MANUFACTURES AND WEALTH.
The Two Words Not Synonymous, Says
the Maine Leader.
The tariff, so the Democratic papers say,
is the origin of a plutocratic government,
when wealth shall rule and poor men shall
not get their r'ghts. I shall venture to
challenge all statements of that kind and I
shall make the Democratic accusers the
judges in the case. A careful examination
of the list of wealthy men in the country
lias lieen published and has demonstrated
tbe fact to be quite the reverse; to such an
extent, indeed, that in the city of Xew
York, taking the first 150 great fortunes,
not three, not two, not more than one
would le considered as derived from man
A Word as to the Irish Tote.
"I have a word to .y alxmt the Irish
vote. I see it stated that the Democrats
boast of having the mass of them in their
ranks. This year it is one of the mysteries
of politics that a question which interests
England so supremely, which is canvassed
almost as much in Ixnidon as it is in Xew
York, should have the Irish rote on the side
of Great Britain. If the Irish vote were
solidly for protection they could defy all the
machinations of the Democratic party for
free trade and throw their influence on the
side of the home market of America against
the side of the foreign market of England.
Refers to Patrick Kgan.
"I know that this appeal has been fre
quently made to tbe Irish voters, but I
make it with emphasis now, for I am un
willing to lielieve that with light and
knowledge before them they will deliber
ately be on the side of their former op
pressors. I think my good friend Egan,
the brilliant and successful minister to
Chili, whom I feel especially glad to meet
at Mr. Reid's table this evening, will inter
cede with his countrmeu his countrymen
in two senses not to aid the Democratic
perty in lowering the Standard of the wages
of American labor by their potential votes
and their potential numbers."
Egan and Depew Speak.
The crowd cheered heartily as Blaine
closed and called for Egan, who made a brief
address entirely devoted to his services in
Chili, saying in brief that he simply car
ried out instructions. Chauncey M. Depew
then spoke. He was in a humorous vein
and paid Westchester county many com
pliments that delighted bis bearers. He
said that Blaine is the one man in 100
years that commanded he respect of all
parties H'nd all men. Keltt was caned tor
at the close of Depew's remarks. He sim
ply thanked the country people for their
courtesy to his guests.

SPRINGER SPEAKS AT ALTON.
He Replies to Criticisms of the Demo
cratic Financial Plank.
Alton, 111., Oct. 15. A big Democratic
rally was held in this city yestenlay. Hon.
A. E. Stevenson and Congressman Spriuger
were the chief speakers. Springer devoted
a portion of his address to the financial
issue. In reply to the criticisms of the
financial plank of the Democratic platform
by Senator Sherman, he said: 'Senator
Sherman and other leaders of the Republi
can party are trying to distract public at
tention from the tariff by charging that the
Democratic party is 5n favor of state lanks
and state bank currency. This effort to
evade the greater issue of tariff reform will
Explains the State Itauk Clause.
"The chvuAe in the Democratic platform
favoring a "repeal of the in.ernal revenue
tax of 10 per cent, on the circulation of
state banks docs not make the propriety of
issuing statt bank notes a party issue. It
is merely an expression of disapprobation
of the exercise of the taxing power of the
general government to interfere with the
reserved rights of the state. The tax on
the circulation of state bank notes was not
imposed for the punxse of raising revenue
to support tiie government, but was for t he
purpose of suppressing the notes issued by
state banks in order to give national banks
a monopoly of issuing paper money.
Denies the Power of Congress.
"Congress has no more right to impose a
tax upon the notes of state hanks in order
to suppress tnem, than it has to impose a
tax upon the deposits and discounts of state
and private banks to suppress them entire
ly. Congress might suppress by the exer
cise of the taxing jiower in this way many
evils against which the power of congress
might be directed. The states are able to
deal with all such evils and the rights of
tbe people will le safe in the hands of their
representatives in their state legislatures.
'o I'se For Wild Cat Notes.
"There is no place in the policy of the
Democratic party for uneurreiit wild cat
bank notes. Xo place for unstable money
or a fluctuating currency. We demand
that all aper money, whether state or na
tional.shall le kept at pur with and redeem
able in coin. Whilaw Reid is better authority
than John Sherman as to what are the true
issues liefore the country. He said in a re
cent speech that the watchwords of the
Republican party are protection and re
ciprocity. By that he means Republican
protection and Republican reciprocity as
illustrated and set forth in the McKinley
Makes Himself " lUsasrreeable."
Xew Yokk, Oct. 15. John I. Davenport
has flatly refused to attend the meeting of
the special committee of the house of rep

mittee, announcing his intention to disre
gard the summons of the comnuttee and
giving his reasons, coupled with some dis
agreeable remarks alxmt the committee

LI HUNG CHANG MUCHEE NO GOOD.
Very Likely to Oet a Head Put on BIm
Some Fine Day.
San Francisco, Oct. 15. The Oceanic,
from China and Japan, brings the news
that Li Hung Chang, prime minister ot -China
and the most important man in the
kingdom after Emperor Kwong Sui, is go
ing mad. As is the custom in China dl
audiences he grants are given in public; all
officers of the court and all servants are in
attendance. For the head of the govern
ment to slap the face of an official in the
presence of an inferior is a most deadly in
sult, and the man who is slapped loses caste
LI Hung Catches a Tartar.
Yet this is what Chang is said to be do
ing daily. Almost every one to whom he
grants an audience is kicked and cuffed in
front of the servants and retires disgraced.
According to the passenirers on the Ocean
ic things came to a culminating point just
lefore the steamer sailed. One of the gen
erals of the t liinese army appeared before
Li Hung Chang to make an ojlicial report.
The genera' like his predecessors, wa
slapped in the face and was only prevented
by the attendants from falling on the vice
roy. Only a rretty Good Fake.
Latek The story to the effect that
Id Hung Chang, viceroy of China, has
Itecome insane is believed, after a careful
investigation, to be untrue. Xo mention
of such a thing is found in any of the Ori
ental papers. The Chinese consul general
this evening declared it to be a pure fabri
cation. AN ORDER- TO POSTMASTERS.

The Matter Is Confidential.
"The agents of the postoflice department
are furnished with the names and addresses
upon letters and other articles of mail mat
ter for the sole purpose -f enabling them to
make delivery thereof to the persons in

others have no right to. expect that their

to be obtained through knowledge gained
by postmasters in the discharge of their
official obligations, and it is no part of the
business of the officials of the postofhee de

the issuing of the order is that "green
goods" men may not get the lists noted.
