preparing for the biggest demonstration of
the campaign on this occasion, with Hon.

Dourke Cock ran was assigned here for this

committee and a big counterdemonstration
Was Rotten np. Fears were expressed of a
riot, should the two parades meet, but this
was averted by the opposing marshals who
amieablyagreed upon lines of march that
should not trespass upon each other.
The Receptions and Processions. .
Cockran arrived at noon and was given
ail enthusiastic reception. Reid and De
pew arrived at 6:30 o'clock and were like
wise accorded a big reception and escorted
to their hotel by the Republican Commer
cial Travelers' club, under whose auspices
they were brought here. The two great
parades moved from different ends of the
city at 7:30 o'clock, passing each other on
Washington street without untoward inci
dent. The Republicans, having started
earlier, had the advantage in the matter of
halls, having pre-empted Tomlinson's hall,
holding alioiit 4.000 people, and Eiivlisli's
opera house, which will hold about S,Krt,

The Record of the Party.
Reid then referred to his recent trip to
Chicago and the wonderful achievements
of art and mechanics there exhibited, and
the significance of the same. He said that
if the Republican party had failed in 1S00
our actual condition would have been in
expressibly different. He briefly recalled
the record of the party for thirty years and
said "even our enemy" had indorsed mtst
that had been done, and wanted to know
what act in the constructive period for
twenty-five years after the war any Indiana
Democrat would undo. He then discussed
the tariff and currency questions, and eulo
gized the '"first national administration
Indiana ever had" as a clean and hon
orable one with a record as distinguished
as any in the country's history.

He went to the Knglish Opera house when
Reid went to Tomlinson's Hall and there
repeated in synopsis what he had said be
fore. The Democratic Meeting-.
There was an immense amount of enthu
siasm packed into small space at the Grand
Opera house, where jion. liourke Cock ran
spoke. It was packed to suffocation. Mr.
Cock ran made a remarkably eloquent
speech and frequently interrupted with
bursts of cheering. He said the Republic- j
an party had hatched a conspiracy to over- !
thoaw this government and that the Demo- I
cracy had declared in its platform in favor J
of no more t Aes than necessary to honest- j
ly administer the government. If the Re- J

necessarily in favor of high taxation and
extravagance. The charge that the De
mocracy was committed to free trade was
false. The tariff was no protection to the
workingman, and to prove this stated that
the shoe industry of New Kngland had leen
built upon free hides. He was loudly
cheered all through the speech.
STEVENSON AT ANN ARBOR.
The Democratic Candidate Talks at a Rig
Ann Arbor, Mich.. Oct. 25. The Dem
ocratic barbecue in this city yesterday was
a decided success, a crowd of 8,000 people
or more being here. The principal speaker
was Hon. Adlai E. Stevenson, Democratic
candidate for vice president. He made a
speech on the tariff and the "force" bill,
and was roundly applauded, the Uni
versity of Michigan Democraticclub taking
a leading part in this portion of the exer
cises. Stevenson said he brought good
cheer from all parts of the country.
Quoted Depew's Alleged Remark.
He made a hit in quoting what Chauncey
Depew is alleged to have said of Cleveland
in 1890. The remark being that Cleveland
was a type of the best A merican develop
ment. He called attention to Cleveland
former administration, and said that no
scandals had ever been attached to any of
his appointments, that 100.000,000 acres of
land had Iero taken from corporations, and
given to the people. He. said that bonds
were paid promptly anil a large surplus
left in the treasury which the Republicans
in less than four years had squandered.
The Democratic Tariff Policy.
This was caused by the lavish ctcndi
tnres of the Kifty-lii -t congress aud by the
passage of the McKinley bill. The speaker
churned that the Republicans misrepresent
ed, when they said the Democratic jiarty
was for free trade: explained that the pol
icy was as it had always iM-en. for a tariff
to meet the nece.-s iry excuses of the gov
ernment, and contended that when such
taxes had lwen co'.lecied t lie power of the
government censed. He t raced t he history
of tariff lcgi.-iiUioir and argued against the
contention oi the Republicans that the
foreh-ner pnys t lie tax and tii.it protection
protects tin- lalioivro:- .,,- ."arir.er.
failed an 1 lit e? re ! t r a l.iar.
He spoke for an hour and a quarter and
was followed by .Jr..lre M. V. Montgomery,
of Washington, and !?;. Kdwin I-'. Chi,
of Grand liapiils. While !icvcnson was
speaking a Republican called out: "You
were a Knight of t he tiohlcu Circle." Ste
venson replied: "My friend, you are a liar.
I want you to understand me. You or any
body else who makes that statement is a
willful and deliberate liar." The crowd
cheered Stevenson and would havemoblied
the man if Stevenson had not urgedjthern
to let him alone.
Speaking in the Kvening.
In the evening there was a mass meeting
at the rink, were speeches were made by
Judge Montgomery, K. F. Uhl, C. D.

THE DISAPPOINTED ONES.
Words Regarding What Some j
Ilooslers "Kick About."
Th") speaker then said: "We hear
ocmsinu.-Uly nowadays of something
else; how little the men who wanted
offices and di l not get them, think of his
discrimination, and how cold they consider
bis manners. Well, gentlemen, the office
seekers are au important cla-c, and I for
one wish they were all satisfied and that
the president had the tact of Ixjrd Chester
field in sending them away. But I have
oliserved that the average voter can lwir
their disappointments with some philoso
phy. He ki. iws that there are not enongh
(places to go around; and he is even willing
ttiat the president, when it.-inortant busi
ness presses and he has to say 110, should
occasionally not spend too much time
KalogT of the President.
"I c.iTl you to witness that the trivialities
are the sum and substance of the few and
scattering complaints against your Indi
ana president. No man questions his abil
ity or his integrity, or the character of the
administration, or its great success. Every
man here knows that whether as lawyer,
or soldier, or senator, or president his life is
a model; that he is laboriously devoted to
his work; that he is a good citizen, a good
friend, a good neighbor, with a heart as
tender as a woman's to the call of sorrow
or distress aad with a sense of duty that
absolutely dominates his life."
Confident of Ite-Elect ion.
He then asked whether president were
so cheap that Indiana could afford to set
Harrison aside liecause such and such a
one did not get an office, and whether they
would fare bitter under a New York presi
dent? And continued: "Whatever you do
he will be re-elected. We mean to see to
that in New York. We did it the last time
and we shall do it again. But for the sake
of this great state and of her great and
worthy son I beg that no effort of yours
should be lacking to make sure that when
the triumph for the Indiana president is
won we maf hear among the victors the.
voice of Indiana herself. "
The Mew York "Spellbinder."
Reid then repaired to Tomlinson's Hall,
which he found crowded. His speech here
was brief, handling the issues in much the
same manner aa at English's. Depew was
the first speaker at Tomlinson's Hall and
was greeted with prolonged cheering, while
his speech was frequently interrupted with
cheers and laughter. It was one of those
efforts that have made Depew famous as
political orator, full of sparkling points pat
