Nkw York, Oct. 27. Grovor Cleveland
was royally welcomed last night at the Im
perial hotel by 200 of his townsmen when
the BufTalonian Cleveland and Stevenson
dub, of the city of New York, the member
ship of which is exclusively confined to na
tives of Buffalo now residents of this city,
tendered him a reception. Cleveland is a
member of this club, but last night was the
first . time during the three months of its
existence that he had been present at any
of their meetings. E. E. Benedict, presi
dent of the club, welcomed Cleveland to the
fold in an appropriate speech, and then
called on him for a speech, and amid much
enthusiasm the ex-president arose.
Some Reminiscent Remarks.
Mr. Cleveland began with a reference to
the part he used to take in politics as a
youg man" at Buffalo carrying a torch
with a yellow cape over his shoulders and
getting coal oil down his back end with
kindly references to the old friends whose
names he found on the club list of mem
bers. The speech was largely of a reminis
cent character and he began the political
portion with the remark that the personal
pleasure at meeting his old friends had
made him nearly forget that the club had
political plans and purposes.
Merely Add to His iratitude.
lie then continued: "I am y::ul, however,
that when these plans and purposes occur
to my mind they merely add to my grate
ful appreciation of your personal kindnes.
You encoursjje me to believe that though
you have associated together in support of
certain political principles the fact that an
old Buffalo friend is in trouble on account
of his political opinions and needs your
help has something to do with your or
ganized polit ical activity. Therefore, while
my heart is full of gratitude to the friends
I see about me, I cannot forbear the
suggestion of my belief that your organiza
tion not only demonstrates your personal
friendship for an old townsman, but it also
indicates that you are fully alive to your
duty is good citizens.
Devoted to Democracy.
"You know how devoted I am to the prin
ciples of the Democratic party, and your
knowledge of me will, I m sure, acquit me ,
of insincerity when I express the opinion j
that the result of the pending political j
struggle means more to our country and
our people than any in which you and I
have ever been engaged. On one side the
claim is defiantly and arrogantly announced
that the functions of our government may
.be used directly for the benefit of certain
special interests, with at best a very remote
-regard to the welfare of the masses of the
people. In opposition to this an anneal is
made to our fellow citizens to hold fast to
the doctrine that their government should
at all times be administered directly for
them, and that they should not be obliged j
to recei ve'as their share of the blessings of j
the freee government they maintain the
small portion which may fUtur through
to them in the process of making special
Doesn't Go Into Detail.
"In other words the Democratic party is
insisting upon the honest application of
the rule that "a government by the people
should be a government for the people. It
is as needless as it is foreign to my purpose
to discuss in detail before those so thought
ful and intelligent as my Buffalo friends
the difference between the political princi
ples and purposes presented to our people
for their approval. I only desire to assure
you that the gratification which your per
sonal attachment affords is greatly en- j
hanced by the consciousness that it is the
attachment of those who are thoughtful
and patriotic, and by the conviction that
the support that you give in an organized
way to your old townsman cannot create
in yonr minds the least suspicion that such )
support is in the aid of principles at all in
consistent with your highest duty as
STEVENSON AT BROOKLYN
The Ties Presidential Nominee Gets a
At Brooklyn last night the Academy of
Music was packed to hear Hon. Adlai El
Stevenson talk Democracy. He said that
Republican extravagance had dissipated
the surplus revenue left by Cleveland, and
produced a deficit of $52,000,000 for the pres
ent fiscal year, and repeated his well known
views on silver, which in short are em
braced in the Democratic national plat
form. Regarding the tariff he declared the
Democracy in favor of reform, but repudi
ated the free trade charge made by the Re
publicans. Comments on Tariff Matters.
He ridiculed the idea that the prosperity
of the country was due to Republican legis
lation in any degree. There had, he said,
undoubtedly been a wonderful increase in
the material wealth of the country, but
who had the wealth t Replying to this he
said it was in the hands of the few. Only
ene-tenth of the 19,000.000 workingmen in
the United States were engaged in protected
indust ries, so the tariff was of little import
to the laborer except as a burden. He re
ferred to the strikes, lockouts, mortgage in
debtedness, prioe of wheat and cotton as
evidences of lack of prosperity in the coun
try, and closed with an argument against
the "force" bill. -
"BOB". LINCOLN AT QUINCY.
Te Republican View of the Issues Givea
" by a Diplomat.
Qoihct, 111b. Oct. 87. Hon. Robert T. Lin
coln addressed 3,000 voters here yesterday.
Ho said he was a stranger.but a voice in the
crowd answered him that "we knew your
daddy," which brought out a round of
sheers, which, indeed, were very plentiful
during the whole meeting, as the throng
was an enthusiastic one from start to fin
ish. "Uncle Dick" Oglesby was present as
4 tf tnKtr, and so was George, 6. Wllletta,
Kepu oilcan canaiaaie tor representative m
cougress. Mr. Lincoln briefly ran over the
record of the record of Democracy as he
viewed the same.
The Democracy Denounced.
He said the Democracy of before the war
was noted for several things. One was the
advocacy and establishment of state banks
and "wild cat" currency: another was the
upholding of slavery as a divine institution;
another was a contempt for workingmen
on the north, whom the southern and
nior and ruling contingent of Democracy
sailed "mudsills." Lincoln couldn't see
how any self-respecting workingman could
be a Democrat when he remembered these
things. Another Democratie doctrine of
those days was that we wereanagreculturaj
people and did not need manufactures.;
Industrial Progress Since 1SOO.
The speaker then spoke of the progress of
the country since 18', which he ascribed in
large degree to Republican legislation. The
country had prospered under Republican
laws. Said he, referring to the time before
the war: "We were then a distinctly agri
cultural country. We had no iron for our
railroads, and the good women at home
could not buy an American made Brussels
carpet. Today, on the contrary, steel rails
sell for (30 a ton that then cost $150 a ton,
and you can buy American made Brussels
carpets at less than tl that cost then $2.25 a
yard. And the same thing is true in regard
to hundreds of other articles. This was
mainly brought about by the Morrill tariff
law and subsequent modifications of that
wise law. Tariff laws, together with Amer
ican genius and inventive skill, have
brought the prices of all these goods down
to so low a scale that it is simply astonish
ing to those who lived back there and paid
the prices charged under Democratic ascen
, Wages and Cost of Living;.
"American wages have, on the other
hand, been doubled and trebled during the
time of which I speak. The Republican
policy has enabled the working people to
purchase more with their money and has
secured to them more money with which
to buy. The Democrats wish to break
down this American policy. They say
that the cost of living h;is increased. This
I utterly deny. All articles can now be
bought on an average one-third cheaper
than they could thirty-five years ago. I J
speak of quantity. It does cost more to j
live, but this results from what is called j
the American mode of life. The working j
people and others demand more comforts
now than then. The American mode of
life is not, I assure you, known elsewhere
Cheapness of Foreign Goods.
"They say that coats are cheafier in Eng
land than in America, The difference is,
my friends, that the American lalorers
can HUY the coats. Across the wattr there
are crowds to le seen who could not buy a
coat it they were selling at one cent each.
Cheers. They say that the prices of
manufactured goods would be cheaper if
we had free trade. Well, I think that
would be true for a time, and perhaps for
all time, but not for the reason you are
asked to believe. With free trade our man
ufactories would have to go out of busi
ness. They could not live and pay wages
that would enable American workmen to
buy their goods. The occupation of the
workmen would be gone and OUR country
men could not buy coats at one cent each,
The Great Armies Abroad.
"In foreign countries from 500,000 up
wards of able-bodied men are serving in
the standing armies of each country; yet
foreign workingmen are coming here to
get American wages. I do not believe that
our workingmen. who see these plain
truths, are going to scuttle the ship that is
carrying them safely and prosperously
through life" Cheers.) He didn't be
lieve the country wanted Democratic rule.
There had not been that sort of rule for
thirty-two years, for when Cleveland was
president there was a Republican senate.
The Democratic party was not in full
M'KINLEY IN ILLINOIS.
He Speaks to Large Crowds at Danville,
Decatur and Litchfield.
Daitville, Oct. 27. For the McKinley
meeting yesterday all the railroads center
ing in Danville ran excursions from every
direction. Governor McKinley arrived
here on a special train over the Wabash
railroad at 2:90 o'clock in the afternoon.
He was taken at once to Ellsworth park,
where there were thousands of people.
The governor devoted most of his time to
discussing the tariff and the plank in the
Democratic platform favoring the repeal
of the 10 per cent, tax on currency issued
by state batiks.
Said a Good Word, for Cannon.
He closed his speech by making a strong
appeal to all Republicans present to lay
aside any personal prejudice they might
have against ex-Representative Cannon and
return him to congress, where he would
properly represent them. Ex-Congressman
Pay-son, Attorney General Hunt, and others
spoke in the evening. On his way here
Major McKinley stopped at Litchfield and
Decatur and addressed large crowds of

New York, Oct 27. General A. E.

yesterday issued orders that all city depart

health, should be closed Friday, the day of
Mrs. Harrison's funeral.
A Bill Passes With Two Democrats Vot
Madison, Wis., Oct. 27. The apportion
ment as adopted by the Democratic caucus,
with the exception of one district, passed
both houses yesterday. The exception is
in the case of Fond da Laa county, where
the Republican arrangement prevailed.
Senator Krueger and Assemblyman Neal
Brown, both Democrats, voted with the
Republicans on the ground that the appor
tionment wouia not, in tnelr judgment,
stand a constitutional test. The majority
of the Democrats, however, claim that the
new apportionment is constitutional and
that under it they will still be able to re
tain a majority in the legislature.
