New York, Nov. 5. The heavy work of
the campaign Laving been about completed,
and there being notbiiiK left for the man
agers to do unless, indeed, there is in
cubating on one tide or the other some
magnificent stroke of policy tot to be
sprung until the last moment the day for
proclamations has arrived, and both party
headquarters are giving out their claims
with a confidence that will, perhaps, be
justified in one or the other by the result of
the election. So to come to the point, Chair
man Harrity has issued an address to the
American people on the situation.
Iisfushes the Tariff Question.
The document begins with a discussion
of the tariff question, iu which it is declared
that less than l.noomen in the country con
trol the tariff system, force the increase ,f
duties ar.d generally run the thing; this
1,000 men also control the Republican par
ty, and the federal office-holders are pa-t
of the machinery- The uddrcs then goes
on: "The people of the state of New York,
remembering the high character and pub
lic services of G rover t.'levi-lanI, and know
ing that his election is a certain guarantee
of a wiser, purer and lctt,or government,
will rally to his support. Those Repub
licans of the state of New York and there
are many who love their country and d -spise

methods of isss and will stand by Cleve
land. Then the force bill is taken up and
declared a threat. President Harrison is
in favor of the easy method of carrying
federal elections which this bill supplies,
says the address, and it then closes as fol
follows: "The individual vote of each one
of you is of supreme importance. Under
Grover Cleveland as president the highest
and controlling motive and rule of his ad
ministrative action, ami of the whole
Democratic and indejiendent vote nnited
in his supjHirt. will Ik- the greatest good of
the greatest nuiulier; and public office will
lie sacredly regarded as a public trust.
We ask every one of you to labor, without
ceasing, for the election of G rover Cleve
land and Adlai K. Stevenson and for good
government under a Democratic Adminis
tration." Harrlty's Individual Claims.
To a press representative Harrity, . na
tional Democratic chairman, declared that
Cleveland would be elected.' a-'declarat ion

by the committee. Besides New York. New

Harrity said would probably vote for Cleve
land, he would not. be surprised to see Wis

and there were reasonable hopes for Mich
igan. He claimed without exception every

'Oct There" Again.
The Republican national committee took
a different line to some extent in their pro
clamation. Apparently impressed with the
idea tat if the people didn't know enough
about the tariff now after the bombard
ment with tariff thunder said people's ears
have undergone for the past year or two
and especially during the past two months
they never would know enough, the com
mittee says not a word on the subject- and
is brief to a degree.
Regarding the U. S. Marshals.
Following is what the Republican nation
al committee says: "The instructions of
Acting Attorney General Aldrich to United
States marshals, and citations from the
law governing their employment at the
polls, together with the penalties prescribed
for interference with them while in the
performance of their duties, have brought
consternation to Tammany. It is the 1 re
lief that with the proper precautious which
will be taken, a fair election can be held
in this city.
looklii ftr Some Roorback.
"There has come to the Republican na
tional committee from various sources in
formation that, the reserve crop of cam
paign lies for issuance the day lefore the
election is very prolific, and unusually sen
sational articles are to be published, pre
senting what purport to be facts from all
the western states for publication in the
east, and the reverse for publication in the
west, when too late to lie contradicted. Re
publicans all over the laud should be pre
pared for this line of action. Beonyourguard;
lielieve only that which is consonant with
your common sense, or accouipanied with
unimpeachable testimony, anil do not
change the conviction that has come by
honest thought," but vote as your con
science dictates and as you think to be
right. You have the assurance of this
committee, based on reliable and confiden
tial information from all over the country,
that the nominees of the Republican part?
will be elected by a constitutional majority
that shall be beyond question."
What Iepew Has to Kay.
Chauncey M. Do pew does not it goes
without saying believe that Harrity and
the Democratic committee have got it
right. He - says that he is confident that
the Republicans will come to Harlem with
100,000 majority, and that "this is reliable."
CLEVELAND AT JERSEY CITY.
Cleveland was introduced to tile audience
women rose in their seats, waving hand
kerchiefs and American flags, and men
shouted and stauijed until the very build
ing shook. Advancing to the front of the
platform Cleveland waved his hail depre
catingly until silence was restored.
Dwelt on the Tariff Issue.
Cleveland confined his remarks to a dis
cussion of the tariff. He reminded his
hearers of the efforts of the Democratic
house of representatives during his admin
istration "to limit taxation to the require
ments of an economical government," and
how the Republican senate defeated them.
The Republicans gained ascendancy in ev
ery branch of the government, Cleveland
said, by pledging themselves to readjust
the tariff. "Four years have passed," he
continued," and in another presidential
campaign you are asked to judge of the
manner in which these pledges have been
kept, and to determine, in the light of pres
ent conditions, whether the benefits prom
ised at the last national election as a result
of Republican supremacy have been real
ized. Charges Against the Republicans.
"The tariff has been amended, if not by
Its friends, evidently by the friends of those
who grow rich under its unjust opportuni
ties. Certainly it is not the handiwork of
the friemls of the people. Has the party
which promised to be their friend lightened
the burden of life in the homes of our land
Do you and your wives and your children
enjoy the comforts and advantages your
lalior should supply Where are the in
creased wages of our workingmen which
they were assured would follow the amend
ment of the tariff by its friends? You
known that broken promises and violated
pledges were scattered all along the path of
the Republican party since, four years ago,
they came to the people with fair words.
The leiuoerac-y lauded.
"The Democratic party, with no faith
lessness to excuse and no shortcomings to
explain, again appeals to the voters of the
laud for their suffrages, and dec lares its
continued adhesion to tne doctrine that the
government has no right to burden the
people by taxation ljeyoud the necessities of
its economical administration. The evils
of the present tariff are greater than those
you condemued eight years ago. You
bae now absolute proof of the falsity of
Republican promises, which four years ago
you refns-d to lielieve. These traditions
and your Democratic traditions stilL in
the keeping of brave and sturdy men, and
the stead f est ness of your state in the cause
of Democracy, maintained in many a hard
fought battle, forbid your faltering now.'
New Je.scy in the Front Rank.
"The national Democracy rests its hope
for success upon the people's intelligence
and p:urioti:-m and upon the confident
trust that the principles of our voters will
not be liartered away. In the front rank
and in the thickest of the fight we shall
still look for the banner tf -Nw Jersey;
and in tie din of victory we shall listen for
tlie familiar shout of New Jersey's Democ
racy." Reception After the Oratory.
Senator McPherson also spoke briefly. It
had been arranged that Cleveland should
hold a reception at the rooms of the Demo
cratic society, and from a stand in front of
the ciute homi auciewr-a parade jfcU-tbe
Detnobraiic clubs of Hudson county. The
parade was omitted, however, on account
of the weather. After the" meeting Cleve
land was driven to the Democratic society
rooms, where he and his party partook of a
light collation, after which he held a pub

TorKKA. Kan., Nov. 5. Chairman Jones,
of the Democratic state central committee,
left the "Weaver meeting Thursday night
because of a misunderstanding with Mrs.
Mary E. Lease, who demanded permission
to speak. At the fair grounds in the after
noon Mrs. Lease said that the would-be
leaders of political parties in this state had
tried to shut her off from the campaign,
and served notice that she would speak
again that night. W. C. Jones, of the
Democratic committee, presided over the
night ; meeting, and after General Weaver
had concluded a speech of two hours, intro
duced J. H. Atwood, a young lawyer of
Atchison. The crowd wanted to bear Mrs.
Lease and began calling for her.
The y Was Very Much There.
Chairman Jones announced that Mrs.
Iiease had left to catch a train, but no
sooner had he done so than the indignant
Populist appeared from behind the flies of
the Opera house and shouted in a loud,
meliKlramtic voice: "Mrs. Lease is here
aud demands permission to speak to the
people of Kansas." Senator Pfeffer and
Geneml Weaver tried in vtjn to pacify her,
and she began her speech to the crowd
amid wild enumsiasm. She denounced the
politicians who were running the fusion cam
paign and declared that the people must
assert themscl ves. After the meeting Mrs.

pre-eminently correct of the south.
