The democrats bad tbeir last grand
rail? of the campaign last night, and
Tumor hal was well filled with an en
thusiastic audience to bear for the last
time this year the principles upon which
the democratic party will this fall like
two years ago, swi( p the country from
end to end. The Young Men's Stevenson
club assemble ! at its rooms 01 Second

Planz with a guard of honor from the
Stevenson club and followed by Bleuer's
bind, leading the main boriy of th c!ub
just mentioned, marched down to Turner
hall, where the speak ins occurre 1.
At Turner Hall.
The meeting was called to order by A.
D Huesins. who n&mi dL, C. Ulanding as
cnatrman 01 tee meeting, in assummc
lh: chair Mr. Blanding made a
brief but enthusiastic address, in
which be paid a handsome tribute
to the taoaor.inteerity and courtgeousness
of that foremost leader Grover Cleyeia-jd,
the next president of the Uaited States,
and also pronounced a fitting eulogy on
that honored eon of Illinois, Adlai B.
Stevenson. At the mention of each of
tbese names the audience was electrified
and cheer after cheer went up as did also
at bis mention of the name of Senator
John M. Palmer, lie spoke of Illinois
as one of the battle grounds of tbe cam
paign, ana at the mention of the name of
Hon. Ben T. Ctble be was again inter-
ruptfd by ringing cheers. The speaker
contrasted tbe difference in the nornina
tion of the ftardrd bearers of the two
great political parties, Harrison beicg
the nominee or a board or hungry offlee
seekers, and the other Grover Cleveland
the choice of tbe people of the nation as
will be shown after the vote on Nov. 8 .h
Tbe remarks were listenel to wrh inter
est and enthusiasm
Mr. Blanding ttien introduced tbe prin
cipal speaker, Hou. Truman Fiautz. As
he stepped to the front of the stags lie
was loui! v"ch.?ered.an 1 Nj'j-in r.is a idnss
btr sta'ine thai it was the last time he
would have the opportunity of present1
in the position he himself occupied, and
also that of the democratic prty. He
said that on next Tuesday the vo.ers of
the Eleyenth C ingress 034! d strict
would (be expected to say w .0 should
represent tbem in c mgrass, and that the
people of Rck Island ciuaty hl tbe
power to say who that man would be,
' vVhen I visited Milioe Ust week." btid
Mr. Plantz, "the Dispatch a newspaper
there presented about 20 questions which
it asked me to answer in my sheecb add
ing that it was dollars to doughnuts that
I would not answer any of tbem I did
mv best to answer each explicitly, and
among others was one saying that if pro
tection was not a good thing for the
laboring man, why was it that in 1857
men work ed in Moline for 50 cents a day
and now get $1 50 per day. I replied that
I did not knew that such was a fact, and
also a sked that pui er to answer why if
protection was such a benefit as was
claimed, tnat men in 1892 were working
in tbe woolen mills at Warsaw, 111., my
home, for 75 cents a day. The next day
tbe paper stated in one column it could
not answer the q iestion, because it hap1
telegraphed to Warsaw to learn if my
btaleoiems wtrn correct, but before going
to prtts an answer h dboen received and
tbe luefbiige bod bien pritjtert 10 another
column wliicb stall d thtt I bad mile a
misstatement and iti thi their men
were paid In m $1 (o $6 oer day.
Returns to Vindicate Himself.
"I left yourcouDiy witb that banging
over me ana went to my nume ueier-
mined to show up tbe managers of those
woolen mills. I have now returned to
vindicate myself, ard I think before this
meeting closes I will demonstrate to you
that I was right." Mr, Piantz then
atated that he would abuse no one as
that was not his style of campaign
ing. He believed that there was as much
in diligence in one parly as in the other,
and as much honesty in one as tbe other.
Tbe speaker did not believe that party
lines marked any distinction in these
things. He then asked his audience t-
throw aside all prejudices, and that all
would indulge in a loye feast. Mr.
Plantz said that in such a case he ought
to have a text, and as one he read Judge
Gresbam's letter which be said would be
his text. He then described the positions
of the two parties on the tariff issues, one
being for revenue only, and the other as
it termed itself for protection to Ameri
can industries. He traced the tariff from
tbe time of Washington to the present
rfav. and the promises of the republican
party to reduce the war tariff, but instead
it forced tbe duties up.
He Illustrates Protection.
Mr. Plantz, in presenting the doctrine
of protection as outlined by the republi
can party, gave a humorous illustration
sho wing ths utter uouseose of the plan
of protecting gigantic trusts and monopo
lies. He then said it was a aad thing to
b compelled to stand up today before an
audience in the state of Illinois and
argue that the tariff was not paid by tbe
foreigner, but that it was necessary to
meet the arguments pre?erti by the op
position, and he followed this statement
with a number of very convincing argu
ments on that question which no doubt
fully convinced bis bearers of tbe folly of
tbe claims that the Anericii consumer is
not obliged to psy the duties levied by
the government on imported articles. In
this connection he also sookn of the un
just provision of tbe MeKtnley bill which
enables the manufacturer here in the
United states to sell the products of bis
factory which are mid from imported
raw material-; cheaper to a foreigner than
to the citizen here.
He Presents Affidavit.
The speaker nexl touched on the rela
tions of capital and labor and compared
the wage3 of this country with some of
those in Eiirope and giving the reasons
for the difference. He contrasted the
wages of free trade Eaglaud with those of
(China, the highest protected country on
the glo'je, and then sp ike of the different
wasea paid in different states in this
country according to the density of pop
ulation, giving as the reason the one
cited in his text Judge Greshtm's letter
the old law of supply and demand.
Here he again brought up the sutjct of
the Warsaw woolen mills and read two
affidavits from persons employed there
showing conclusively that the charges he
made in his speech in Moliae were true
and that he had not in the least distorted
the facts. Following is a copy of one
of the affidavits:
Statu op Illinois. )
Uaxcock County, (
Robort Ltplev being duly swown.
says that he is 25 vears old and that dur-
ins the vear 1892 he worked in the War
saw Woolen Mills at Warsaw, Uancock
county, Illinois, and received 75 cents a
day for his work, lie further states that
he has a brother who is now working in
said mill for 75 cents a day. and that he
is over 20 yeais of ate. He also states
that, he knows that during the last year
William Niemeyer. Daniel Tyrrtll. John
Flack, James Busch, Ellsworth Barker
Millard Straight and others have worked
in said mill for 75 cents per day and that
they are all over 21 vears of use.

"I submit it to your judgment," said
tbe speaker, "whether i lie or whether
the managers of the Warsaw woolen mills
do." He said he would leav his case in
the bands of the labor:ng people of the
district and wou'd be satisfied with the
decision whatever that m ght be. A'ter
speaking on tbe issues in this district at
some leng.h he closed his address.
Mr. McKniry Speaks.
M. J. McEniry was then introduced
and made a brief but ringing speech in
wbicb be reviewed tbe acts of the demo
cratic party during its four years in
charge of tbe national affairs, and in a
clear and concise manner explained tbe
position of Grover Cleveland and his
party oa the currency question and
showed up the fallacy of the bugaboo
about wild-cat money. He then touched
briefly on the campaign on the state and
the school question and predicted demo
critic success all along the line on Tues
The remarks of both speakers were
to the point and often brought forth the
enthusias .ic applause of tbe large crowd
Hon. E. W. Hurst addressed a fine
meeting at Kevnolds last night on the
issues of the campaign.
