New York. Oct. 26. --Tammany bad a
great demonstration last n)ght, holding a
mass-meeting extending from Broadway
and Fourteenth to the east' aide of Third
avenue and Fourteenth with a dozen
stands for the speakers. - In Tammany hall
itself was the center of . attraction, for Da
vid B. Hill spoke there to a packed audi
erieeV Governor Flower presided and he
and Hill received ovations. Resolutions
were adopted indorsing the whole Demo
cratic ticket, state and national, and the
Democratic national platform. It was
Hill's first speech in Tammany hall. He
was briefly introduced by Chairman Flower
and received with long continued applause.
Again the Issue Ja Defined.
In the course of his speech he said, . "The
issue between the two parties upon the
tariff question was never more sharply de
fined than in the present campaign. Xo
one ought to lie deceived as to the attitude
which they respectively assume. Both be
lieve in a tariff sufficient to raise the princi
ple revenue necessary for the support of the
government. The Democratic party there
stops and declares that no other or larger
tariff should be imposed than may
be required for such purpose, while the Re
publican party goes further aud insists
that it is the rinht and duty of the govern
ment to impose such higher duties as may
be deemed necessary to prevent competition
with domestic industries even to the ex
tent, if desired of absolute prohibition of
The Constitutional Argument.
Proceeding he said that the Republican
idea violated the spirit if not the letter of
the constitution. Nowhere was thcre'nn
express provision giving to congress the
right to tax for protect ion. In the con
vention of lTST which framed the federal
constitution a proposition wus made to con
fer upon congress the power to protect
manufactures by commercial reflations,
and it was rejected. - This is important
evidence from which it may lie fairly urged
th.it it was not the intent ion of the framers
of the constitution that congress should be
vested with the power to jiid private indus
tries at the expense of the people.
Jaeluon') Itccord on the Tariff.
During the present campaign our oppo
nents in their recklessness bave even ven
tured to claim that t)ld Hickory himself
General Andrew .Jackson once forced
the policy of protection. If he ever did so
it must have been in the early stages of
the country's history when protection was
only sought as a temporary experiment.
Certainly his later public utterances were
all on the other side. He said in his fare
well address to his countrymen: 'A tariff
of high duties, designed for perpetual pro
tection, has entered into the minds of but
few of our statesmen. The most they
have anticipated is a temporary and gen
eral incidental protection.'
Poaltlon of the Democracy.
"We have not advocated and do not ad
vocate free trade, because the government
needs revenues for its support. The cry
of 'free trade' raised against us by our ad
versaries is a false, misleading and irrele
vant one, but it will deceive no intelligent
man. We demand the reduction or aboli
tion of duties upon the necessaries of life;
we favor free raw materials used in the
manufactures; wider markets for our pro
ductions, and the imposition of the lowest
taxes consistent with the needs of government.
A Word for the Candidates.
"What shall I say of the Democratic can
didates, Cleveland and Stevenson t They
both are of the Jeffersonian standard of fit
ness; both have been satisfactorily tested
in the public service and both represent
the cherished principles of our party in this
campaign ana are entitled to your suf
frages. Ex-President Cleveland needs no
eulogy at my hands. His life and public
service are familiar to the people. His ad
ministration dignified, honest and able!
has safely withstood the popular criticism,
has passed into history, and reflected credit
upon the country. "
The Most Important Inane.
The senator closed with the declaration
that the most important tssae involved in
the election wa the "force" bill issue, and
an argument to prove why it was so and
precincts In which tbey once lived. A large
number of pension and printing oflice
clerks presented themselves at the polls for
registration yesterday. Some were refused,
and those that were accepted were told that
their names would be followed on the books
with a mark indicating that they were not
qualified voters. This treatment brought
nearly 100 clerks to the commissioners'
I office during the day to demand an expla
nation. Those who had not registered were
ad vised to bo back and have their names
No Comfort From Mllehrlat.
Che law clearly dictates that the clerks
shall register all applicants. The question
of voting remains to be decided when the
names indicated as those of qualified voters
come before the board of election com
missioners. Chief Clerk Taylor sent to
United States District Attorney Milchrist
for an opinion on the question. Mr. Mil
christ replied that he appreciated the di
lemma of the commissioners. He thought
on first consideration that the Washington
employes had a right to vote somewhere,
but he could not construe any federal stat
ute to interfere with state lamrs.-

guard has been withdrawn from the United
States consulate the family of Colonel
