THE CHAMPIONS HOME.
GRAND RECEPTION TO THE
A VICTORY FOB THE QUICKSTEP
The Atlantic Club, or Brooklyn, Kaeily
Defeated—The A thletitffteeeptlon --Great
Rnthuslaaui In Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, Oct. 1.—The conquering
and champion Athletics came home in
triumph this evening, joined at Pittsburg
by the Metropolitan Club, of New York,one
of the clubs that were the captives of their
skill with ball and bat, and who had gener
ously consented to grace their triumph.
At Harrisburg they enjoyed the foretaste of
the victorious home-coming that had been
provided for them in this city. William B.
Smith, the president of the Select Council,
aud a delegation of both Chambers of the
City Fathers there met them, and, if they
did not extend the freedom of the city in a
jewelled box, at least gave them to under
stand that Individually and collectively they
were regarded as heroes whom their fellow
citizens were anxious to honor.
An immense multitude met them at the
Broad Stxeet Station, thronging the build
ing as it has never been before. Nearly
3,000 men, belonging to base ball clubs, so
cial clubs and various civic organizations,
stood in line outside, bearing banners ana
transparencies, on which were inscribed le
gends oi welcome. How many Joined in the
welcome in the serried lines which blocked
the many miles of their line of march can
not oe accurately computed, but they came
to welcome and not to jeer, and S 2 arcely a
block of the long route was destitute of illu
mlnated houses or elaborately decorated
A banquet in Mercantile Hall concluded
the reception, which was one of the largest
aud most remarkable that has taken place
in this city of pageants. At the conclusion
of the banquet Charles Mason presented
Harry D. Stovey with a magnificent gold
watch, chain and charm. A speech was
then made by Colonel Fitzgerald, who re
vied the history of the club, and each mem
ber ol the club was presented by Judge Her
uemun with a gold badge, upon which was
inscribed "Athletic, Victors 1883," with the
name of the recipient on the obverse side.
Speeches were also made by William B.

FIRE IN A BED ROOM.
A Mysterious Fire at the Residence of
John B. Ritchie Yesterday Afteruoou.
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
smoke was discovered issuing from the
third-story window oi the residence of John
B. Ritchie, 105 East Sixth street, by his
daughter, Annie T. Ritchie, who imme
diately gave the alarm. Mr. Ritchie, who
fortunately was at home, made his way to
the third floor, where he found that the fire
was iu a room occupied by 8. K. Bowen aud
wife, the latter a daughter of Mr. Ritchie,
and the fire
culty, extinguished with several buckets
of water. In the meantime the
Delaware Truck Company had been no
tified and ran their apparatus up in frout of
the house, but their services were not
needed. How the tire origkated is a mys
tery, as it was confined mainly to a walnut
bureau aud its contents, but is supposed to
have been caused by spontaneous combus
tion. The bureau, a heavy waluut, marble
top affair, with French plate mirror, wa6
totally ruined, the marble slab aud glass
plate being cracked by the heat. The con
tents of the draa ers, mainly valuable cloth
ing, were damaged to such an extent that
they will be worthless, and a silver butter
dish was melted down. The carpet was
burned lor several yards around and the
floor, washboard and
charred. The bureau s
the heavy walnut bedstead,the foot of which
was not damaged but the headboard which
reached to within a few inches of the ceiling
was badly scorched, shewing plainly that
the flames from the burning bureau reached
tbe celling and lapped toward the headboard.
The loss to the furniture will reach about
$150, aud to the building about $50, ou
which there is.an insurance. Unfortunately
the furniture was not insured.

The Agricultural VHeplay In Charge of E.
H. McWhorter A Co., at the Hover Fair.
The exhibit of agricultural Implements
and machinery at the Dover fair, last week,
surpassed that of previous exhibitions by
far. Messrs. Warren, Har(er & Co., made
a handsome display in almost everything
pertaining to agricultural implements, farm
wagons, etc. Notably among the agricul
tural display was the champion binder, ex
hibited by Mr. T. R. Henthorn, the efficient
lieutenant of L. H. Lee & Bro., of Balti
more, assisted by Mr. John McWhorter, of
E. H. McWhorter & Co., of Wil
mlugton. This binder is probably
one of the most perfect machines
ever invented and a brief description of its
wonderful working may prove interesting
to some of your readere. The machine,
when in operation on the field, mows, rakes
and binds its sheaf with more ease, accuracy
and rapidity than by the old hand power.
It ties an accurate bow knot, has an adjust
able stoper and drill packer, a relief rake
lor cleaning the end of knife wheel, thereby
always having security against any clogging
of its parts. Indeed, the entire working of
the machine la by a cog wheel so simple,
that in case of any mishap to the machine
or any part of it, it could be readily reme
died by any ordinary mechanic. The Cham
pion Binder is perfect in simplicity, and
is pre-eminently the best machine of its kind
ever Invented. Messrs. Lee & Bro., Balti
more, are the agents for this State, and also
lor Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey,
Virginia, North and South Carolina and
were kept busy last Thursday, showing this
wonderful machine and Its modus operandi ,
together with various other labor-saving
farm Implements to the assembled crowds.

Trials for the Month.
Clerk Penington of the Municipal Court
makes the following report of cases brought
before the court for the month of Septem
ber: Disorderly conduct, 2; assault and
battery, 4; murder, 1; accomplice to a mur
der, 1; larceny, 1; total, 9 In view of the
fact that Council was going to take some
action on the manner ol tiyiug cases it seems
a little strange that, out of the 214 arrests
reported by the Chief of Police, onlv nine
should be tried by the Municipal Court.
The Hues from this court, of course, go into
the city treasury; the fines of the 205 tried
before 'Squire O'Neill went into the county
treasury or the pockets of the models. But
as long as the tax-payers find no fault there

The Heiss English 0|>era Company, in
the delightful opera, "Bohemian Girl," ap
pear here on Saturday next. The troupe
numbers over 60 members and will bring
with them their own orchestra. This opera
has not been rendered in this city for more
than 10 years, but many of the choruses aud
peculiar melodies are decidedly popular.
Thatcher, Primrose and West's celebrated
ministrel's will give a performance here at
the Opera House to morrow evening. Dur
ing this troupe's stay in Washington D. C.
of a week recently they con pletly cap
the fun loving people of the city and
greeted with crowded houses every night.
The Washington Capitol say :
Thatcher. Primrose and West at this
theatre during the past week held their
own with splendid houses against the pecu
liarly ugly behavior of the weather. They
presented a performance in the mlnistrcl
line that equaled in every particular their
announcement of a"big show.'' The comedy
element of the companv is the strongest that
has appeared here this Sfcason. It does one
a vast amount, of good to sit for an evening
and listen to the discourses of such com med
ians as George Thatcher, Billy Rice, George
Primrose, Carl Rankin and Pete Mack,
and it requires Just the large
patronage they receive to enable
a single company to support such an array
of noted talent The unusually brilliant in
troductory closed with a very ridiculous
burlesque on the play of "Squatter Sov
ereignty." The features of the second part
of the programme were the wouderful evo
lutions of Frank McNlsh in his famous
specialty entitled "Silence and Fun;" the
musical comedy by tbe Raukins and Frank
Howard; the jockey clog led by the favorites,
Primrose and West; and the exci uciatingiy
funny monologues of George Thatcher. The
performance ended with Carl Ran Kin's
original burlesque entitled "La La Muskrat,"
one of the most catching finale* seen here in
a long time. The musical part of the
' gramme was strong and well sustained.
A RIDE TO DEATH.
A Fatal Collision Caused
Shore Hoad by the Waving of Flags.
Utica, N. Y., Oct.. 1.—Shortly after noon
to-day the West Shore train known as the
Albany local, bound east and due ^t St.
Johnsville at 12.01, and the Syracuse ex
press, bound west and due here at 12.12,
came in collision about two and a half
miles east of this place, on a heavy curve
near Diefendorf Hill. The loemotives came
together at full speed and are now standing
on their ends, completely wrecked and good
for nothing but old iron. The baggage car
of the Albany local train was thrown at
right angles off on the south side of the
track upon a side-hill. The eastern train
consisted of five passenger coaches and one
baggage car, and the western of four
coaches and one baggage car. All but two
cars of the western bound train remained
on the track and were taken back to Fort
Plain, and all but two of the cars of the
east bound train were taken back to 8t.
TWO MEN KILLED.
Michael Lyons, the engineer of the Albany
local train, and a man named James Whit
lock, of Euphrata, Fulton county, who was
In the smoking-car, were killed. The en
gineer of the westbound train saw smoke
around the curve, set tbe air-brakes and
jumped, with' his fireman and J. B. Davis,
the division roadman. All of these escaped
without much injury. As tbe eastbouud
engine turned around the curve the fireman
Jumped and escaped. Engineer Lyons,
however, stood at his post and was
crushed by the engine. He was alive
when first' seen, but died soon after
and his body is burled under the wreck in
plain sight. A. Newman, of Nelliston, who
was eltth g lu the seat with Whitlock, had
both legs broken. Henry Cable, of Eu
pbrata; L. P. Cole, of Amsterdam, and
about a dozen other persons are wounded.
The cause of the a' cldent Is said to have
been Engineer Lyons' disregard of the sig
nal set out at St. Johnsville to stop the
train until the west bound train had arrived
there. It does not seem to have been ob
served. The conductor of the east hound
train is understood to have "supposed'' that
that the west bound train would be held at
Fort Plain, the card place of meeting.
A SIGNAL MISTAKEN FOR A SALUTE.
Another statement ol the cause of tbe
accident has been sent to Utica. All along
the line of the road to-day from Syracuse
eastward flags and handkerchiefs have been
waved in greeting to the flist trains of the
new railroad. An order was telegraphed to
St. Johnsville to hoid the east-bound train at
that point until the west-bound train had
arrived, and the operator ran out with
his flag on the track waving it. Engineer
Lyons saw the flag, it is said, and undoubtly
mistaking the signal for a jubilant salute on
the operator's part kept on with his train to
death. If the signal had been heeded the
accident could not have occurred.
The trains were due to meet at Fort Plain,
and on occasions like this the crews on both
trains are always anxious to make the meet

A WONDERFUL SPURT.

elegant race. Teemer, by a wonderful
spurt, pulled up and passed Hosmer, who

Fully 15,000 people were present at to
night's Democratic jubilee on the public
square. Judge Hoadly was received with
unbounded enthusiasm. His speech, which
was long, was received with great satisfac

introduction had subsided, he spoke as
I thank, you, tellow-citizens of Cleveland,
for this cordial and magnificent reception
to-night, and I thank the band which has
played that kindly tune, of which I feel un
worthy, "Hail to the Chief," because on
Saturday night the elements played the
same tune for my brother Foraker.
(Laughter.) I am here to try to address
you to-night, not between quinine and mor

When the 38 votes of Cuyahoga eounty
were cast for my nomination as the Demo
cratic candidate for Governor of Ohio, and
with their aid I was selected, it was my
hope and purpose to make a personal can*
vase of the State as thorough, persistent and
as my health and strength would permit. It
has been my misfortune to be stricken
do* n with severe illness almost at the be
ginning. The hope has been disappointed;
the purpose frustrated.
Democrats of Cuyahoga county; I con
gratulate you on your union and spirit and
hope of success. Fifty years in the minority,
if you are at lAst triumphant, your clarion
voices and vociferous outbursts at the head
of the column have called the Democracy of
Ohio to duty. It is no small thing to bear
with defeat for half a century and not lose
courage; it is much more on the end of this
long period, during which Whig and Repub
lican triumphs have been tempered only by
occasional pluralities during the brief times
that the division between the Whig and Free
Soil parties made temporary success possi
ble, and broken only once by the signal but
noble victory in 1874—when your honorable
citizen. Henry B. Paynç, was called Into f be
nation's official service lor a brief period—
(applause)—it is much more, 1 say, at the
end of this half century, to know that you
occupy the held of battle as permanent
vk tors; that you have come here to stay in
the majority, perhaps, for half a century to
come; and that, all that is needed to insure
your continued triumphs for a period of
equal length with the Whig and Republican
majorities is moderation in the enjoy meat of
victory and its employment for the public
good. Of this we may l>e certain from the
knowledge of the manner In which you have
used your power since first it was Intrusted
to you by the people.
Two great parties are before you,claiming
your Confidence, claiming your votes. The
Democratic party comes as the champion of
governmental economy and personal liberty.
(Applause.) Of Governmental economy,
for in the first session, during which it held
power in Congress, it was able to reduce ap
propriations by (22,000,000, and in the next
session by many more; and in the first
sion of Republican power that party restored
and much more
expenditure to the wasteful point at
which Democratic economy had checked it.
The Democratic party is the guardian oj
popular light and has at all times been the
champion of tbe national honor and «be

"RENEGADES"—THE TARIFF—TEMPER IS NCR
It is no wonder that millions of people's

Seward, Chase, Greely, Summer, the Blaire,

thousands of others who were identified with
the Republican party on the slavery issue

called a renegade. Never faltering as they
never faltered, in devotion the priucipl
hostility to American slavery, when slavery

We, as Democrats; favor a tariff for

ernment, economically administered, but so
adjusted in its application as to prevent un
equal burdens and encroachments upon the
productive industries at home and afford
just compensation to labor,but not to create
