BRITISHERS AT NIAGARA FALLS.
3Ir. Erastus Wiman Feasts Them and Then
. Fills Theia with Praise of Canada.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Niagara Palls, N. Y., Oct. 24. The sec
tion of tho British Iron and Steel Institute,
which separated at Chicago to view the
iniaeral regions of the northern part of the
comment, arrived here to-day. A lunch
was given at 2 o'clock by Air. Erastus
Wiman, the viands being composed ex
clusively of Canadian food products, in
order to illustrate the independence of
Canada from a food-producing point o
view. Potatoes all the way from Manitoba,
weighing forty to fifty pounds, astonished
the Britishers, while white fish from the
Lake of the Woods and southdown mutton,
venison, duck and grapes were served. In
the course of his speech of welcome Mr.
"Canada is a land of surprises. To those
who know and love her beet she is ever re
vealing a new source of wealth. Who
could havo imagined, until recently, that
Canada possessed within herself th poten
tialities for the defense of the world! The
Sudbury copper bearing region visited yes
terday discloses the fact that her deposits
of nickel are the greatest the world has
ever been. The recent tests by the United
States navy show that nickel-plated armor
for ships are practically impenetrable,
alongside of winch the boasted British
armor plates crumble into nothingness.
Equally with the United States and Eng
land the nations of Europe seek with anx
iety this fair land for the? force which
will best defend them. This is shown by
the visit of a scion of the house of Krupp,
the greatest of the gun-makers, who, leav
ing his 22.000 men at work in Essen, in
Germany, seeks incognito in the wilds of
Sudbury the secret power that will make
guns unburatable and armor plates im
penetrable." Mr. Wiman then pictured in glowing
terms the future of the Dominion. In
closing he said that Canada "may bo left
exposed as the hostage of peace in the prac
tical safe keeping of the American people.
They will not capture it by conquest,
neither will they seek to conquer it by gov
ernmental or territorial purchase and. thus
imitate their own policy of the past, but
they will probably imitate the British
Eolicy of the present in the purchase of
reweries and other industrial interests by
the English capital sent hither. For if the
Congress of the United States should ex
press a willingness to extend to the north
an invitation to reciprocal arrangements
similar to that whiob, in their new tar ill'
jnst enacted, they have extended to south
ern nationalities, the people of Great
Britain must not blame Canada if she ac
cepts this tirat glorious omen of better re
lations hereafter to exist between the En
glish speaking nations that hold this vast
coutineut i uncommon, and without a change
for the present in the political conditions,
or the deprivation of a foot of British ter
ritory, by trade and commerce heal the
great schism of the Anglo-Saxon race on
this continent in an nnion of interests that
nothing can dissolve."

CniCAdo. Oct 24. Accommodations for
the largest political gathering in Chicago
had to bo doubled to-night to make room
for the throng that attempted to hear
Speaker Reed. The outpouring was almost
unprecedented in point of magnitude and
enthusiasm for sucb an event in this city.
Doors were locked at Battery D Armory
fully an hour before the hour announced
for the beginning -of the evening mass
meeting to be addressed by Mr. Reed. Over
6,000 people were within the walls, every
chair on the main floor and galleries being
occupied, and hundreds were patiently
waiting in the armory of the Second Regi
ment, adjoining Battery D, in the hope that
an overflow meeting would be organized to
be addressed by the celebrated presiding
ollicer of the House of Representatives.
The hall was elaborately decorated, the
feature being that the hangings were com
posed exclusively of the stars and stripes.
When several hundred members of the
Union Veteran Association, with banners
flyiug, entered the hall as an escort to Mr.
Reed, there began at once a scene of
remarkable enthusiasm. It was a distin
guished group that accompanied the guest
of the eyening United States Senators
Farwell and Culloni, Congressmen Mason,
Adams and Butterwortn, besides Chairman
Joti8 0f the Illinois Republican State cen
tral commit no, and many others equally
Speaker Reed's Speech.
Mr. Reed spoke substantially as follows:
"Fellow-citizens. Ladies and Gentlemen
I thank you very heartily for your cordial
greetinir, which I will endeavor, in my
mind, at least, to distribute around among
those who deserve it as much as I do; for I
take it that your approval as expressed to
night is the approval of the time-honored
priuciple of government by the majority
made into law.
"The Democracy have one very great ad
vantage over the Republican party, and I
am not partisan enough to fail to perceive
it and to fail to acknowledge it. The Re
publican party does things; the Democratic
party criticises, lhe Kepnblican party
achieves, the Democratic party linds fault.
lApplauso.J It follows from the very ne
cessity of achievement that the Republican
party must take positive giound on aoine
known spot of the earth. The Democracy
are free then to skirmish through the rest
of the creation. Loud arplause.) Of course
that gives them, during tho early part of
the conflict, the appearance of occupying
the earth, but when the thing is over it is
found that the Republican 'position has
been thoroughly defended, and that the
Democracy are on their way to next
year's campaign. Laughter aud ap
plause. 2tot having, to do any
thing, it follows that they are not
under any necessity of being consistent.
There is nothing, and never has been any
thing, in the constitution of the Demo
cratic party to prevent it from being de
nunciatory to greenbacks when we were
issuing them for the salvation of the coun
try, and then being violently in favor of
them when we were trying to make them as
good as gold. The Democratic platform has
the advantage over us in its met hod of argu
ment that of simplicity. They simply
have to pass on what we do and account
for all the misfortunes of the world by
means of the acts of the Republican party.
"Just now the thing which is destroying
the world is the McKinley bill. Loud
applause and laughter.) My friends, have
we not had enough of this nonseuseT Has
there ever been a position in the advance
ment of this country any time during the
last thirty years wbich has not been as
Sailed in precisely the fashion to which the
McKinley bill is assailed to-day, IShonts
of "Kigbt, right attain!" ' and is there a sin
gle thing which the Republican party baa
done that has not, within two to tive years,
received either tho tacit or the vociferous
approval of the Democracy! If that has
been our past history it seems that we neea
not tremble for the future.
"There is one thing which ought to char
acterize the legislation of this free people,
and that is tho participation in the enact
ment of it by all tho people of the United
States, for we have solemnly agreed that
not one man on this earth or in this Nation
shall be permitted to govern any other
man without bis consent; that the rights of
us all are precisely and exactly equal at
the ballot-box. Applauae.l Why is this
vast multitude assembled here oxer pt bo
cause every individual of it has a right to
participate, for he is a man in the govern
ment of this country! Why do we meet for
instruction if it is not because we need itf
We meet together to determine our wishes
for our own government, and our safety as
a nation depends upon our llrm adherence
to the principle that nobody shall be left
out and nobody shall be considered so poor
or old, or black that he shall be counted
out in the government of the Nation. Loud
applause by colored men.
OVEIt ONE MILLION VOTERS DISFRANCHISED
"My friends, there are men in this coun
try who believe that you can safely dis
franchise a million and a quarter of voters
entitled to cast a ballot by virtue of our
Constitution, which was saved ernd im
proved by the blood of our best and
bravest I am not one of that number. If
the man who believes in that doctrine
could show yon that the power wbich was
taken from the million and a quarter of
legal voters was distributed among us all
they might find some ground upon
wbich to stand in defense of theirviolation
of the Constitution, but the power which
is taken away from this million and a
quarter of voters is not lodged in us
all; it is transferred to the few who
live in one section of this country.
I do not want any Democratic brother to
be moved to tears when I state where that
section is, for I do it with no reference to
the saddeniug memories of the past. 1 do
it because geographical Accuracy requires
me to do it. The Southis a geographical
portion of this country, and in that geo
graphical portion they have not only the
rights of white men, but the rights of a
million and a quarter of voters, and a right
to use it against yon and against me. In
the State of Kansas, for instance, where
tbey elect seven members of Congress, they
have to cast seven times as many votes as
they have to cast in South Carolina to
elect the same number of men. In other
words, the South Carolina gentleman is the
equivalent of seven of the mortgaged
farmers of Kansas.
"Force bill.' they call it. 'Bayonets
behind it.' I can appreciate the seusitive
nessof some men regarding bayouetp. I
cannot help but feel a tender sorrow that
they should be brought to their minds, but
it is not we who bring them back into the
memory of this country. It is the Demo
cratic newspapers. The force bill! The
only force behind it is the force that is be
hind every State of the United States of
America, viz., the force of a free country
with all its resources and its power. The
Democracy also sigual their tight against
the principle of majority rule by refusing,
bo far aa they are able, to allow the ma
jority in Congress to carry out and register
the will of the people as declared in IkSS.
lApplanseJ. Of what use is it to elect
members of Congress if we cawiotvotef
What use is it to elect a majority if it can
not go on? What you want is business,
not excuses for not doing business, and if
that is what you want you want to say 60."
THE TARIFF AND THE PKICE-RAISERS.
The Speaker then turned his attention to
the McKinley tariff law, on which subject
" 'We aro eomg to have tremedous prices
day after to-morrow,' say the shop-keepers,
therefore come in at once; buy now, be
cause if you don't the terrible McKinley
hulj which is hovering iu the air, will
evcoop down and take all your money away
from yon.' Now, there never Was any bet
ter proof of the ability' of the Western
shop-keeper than that they have inveigled
the Democratic editors in doing all their
advertising for nothing at all Applause.
It is a singular fact that this proposed
raise on prices is put by the intelligent
Democratic editor noon all articles with
out the slightest discrimination as to
whether the 'tariff tax is raised
oy the McKinley bill or lowered.
Thero are, however, legitimate raises
in prices. Aro they a source of calamity to
the people! If the Democratic Idea was
true that the whole of the American people
were consumers, there might be some snse
in this outcry. If eviy American citizen
sat still in his place and did nothing but
consume, why, it would be a matter of
serious importance to what he paid for
things, but the American citizen is not the
ideal citizen of the Democratic newspapers.
He is a citizen who makes just as much as
he consumes, and more, too. The question
of the price of anything is of interest solely
with reference to the amount of money you
have got in your pocket. When in Cali
fornia they paid $3 for a square meal, it did
not amount to so much for they were get
ting an ounce of gold worth $10 everyday.
On the other hand, it is not of the
slightest use to make low prices for the im
poverished citizen, when he has got no
money in his pocket They say you cannot
raise the wages and at the same time lower
the prices; and yet it is an absolute fact
that when we began protection wages "were
low, prices high, and that to-day wages are
high and comparatively prices aro low.
"When the McKinley bill was framed a
committeo was appointed, which extended
from Maine to the Pacific coast, taking in
the Middle States, the State of Ohio, the
great Northwest and the State of Cali
fornia. Hero, then, were a set of men who
certainly knew the wants and wishes of the
people of the United States; but they never
presumed to know it ail; on the contrary,
from the time that the committee was
formed until the bill was Anally passed,
every man had a hearing who desired.
No wisdom in the United States
of America was despised. The bill
was made for the whole people
of the United States and by the aid and as
sistance of the whole people of America.
Applause. It was an American bill, made
on the American plan. More than that, it
was a bill which carried out distinctly the
platform of the Republican party, the
party for whom the people of America
voted in 1865. Then why can anybody
complain? We did not wait until the next
session until the election was over before
we passed it but we did it openly and
manfully, intending to face the people,
and we are face to face with them now.
No other great tarilf bill was parsed that
way within my recollection, "ion have to
Eass upou a question whetheryon intend to
ave the House of Representatives a busi
ness body or a sham.v
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Speaker Reed
was conducted by a committee from his
rooms at the Grand Pacific House
to the Union League Club, where be held a
reception to the members of the club, their
ladies and invited guests, until 6 o'clock.
The attendance was very large, and
long before Mr. Reed - arrived the
large buildiug, parlors and reception-rooms
were crowded. The party was one of the
most brilliant seen at the Union League
for many a day. Tiie main reception-room
of the club was a bower of flairs, sihil ax,
tlowers and tropin,! . plants all beauti
fully arranged. At fi o'clock the re
ception dosed , and Speaker Reed was
conducted to the Tower dining-room of the
club-house, where President Harrison was
banqueted. The table was arranged in a
circle, from one side of which extended an
arm, at which additional guests sat. The
decorations were American roses and ferns.
Thirty covers were laid.
WEDDING AND ROMANCE.
Mrs. Tracy, a Well-Known Actress, and ner
Former Lover United in Marriage.
New York, Oct. IM. Mrs. Tracy, who is
better known in New York as Agnes Rthel,
the former leading actress of Mr. Augustin
Daly's company, was last Tuesday evening
united in marriage with Mr. Clinton Roudo
bnsh, of this city, the brother of Lorenzo
Roudebush, at one time a member of the
Stock Exchange, aud who married the only
sister of Mrs. Tracy. The ceremony took
place at the bride's home, on the corner of
Irvinir Place aud Nineteenth street, in the
presence of ft few friends, tho Rev. Frank
L. Wilson officiating.
Every wedding has its romance, and the
romance of this wedding is that in their
younger days Mr. and Mn. lloudebush were
engaged, but tbey quarreled and the en
gagement was broken. They both married,
and until a little more than a year ago their
interests were separate. In July, 1689, Mr.
Roudebush's wife, who was a niece of Min
ister Washburn, died, aud the former lovers
were again free, Mrs. Tracy's husband
having died more than three years before.
He was Francis W. Tracy, of Bullalo, who
left a largo property to his widow, and
whose will was contested by his daughter,
Harriet Robinson Tracy, to whom he had
left but $100,000. After appealing from one
court to another the plaintiff was tin ally
defeated, but all complications over the
will are not yet settled, as there is a contest
now before the courts, arising from a clause
in tho will by which anjr of the heirs under
the will should bo deprived of his share in
case ho disputed tho will. The daughter's
claim is that the suit was brought, not by
her but by her guardian, as she was a
When his former wife died Mr. Roude
bush was left with a small son whose lone
ly state appealed to Mrs. Tracy, and she
agreed to provide for the child. The boy
lived only loni? enough to ell'ect a reconcil
iation, for he died last August of diphtheria
at a watering place in Germany, whero his
father had cone for the'beneht of his own
health. Mr. Roudebush returned soon after
to this country, and the marriage which
had for some time been contemplated was
hastened, as the groom wished to go back
to Europe. Mr. and Mrs. Roudebush ac
cordingly sailed on the Saale on Wednes
day, the day after the marriage.

New York, Oct. 24. It G. Dun & Coa
weekly review of trade says: Business
continues large in volume and generally
profitable. In many branches there is a
noteworthy expansion on account of the
new opportunities which the revised tarilf
Boston finds the boot and shoe trade en
couraging, and prices in that line are firm.
Sales of wool are rather large, but there is
a distinct improvement in tho market for
woolen goods, and manufacturers are more
hopeful. Cotton goods are firm in price,
while the raw material declines. At Phila
delphia money has become easy, and collec
tions are on the whole satisfactory. At Chi
cago there is a marked decrease in receipts of
cured meats, dressed beef, lard, butter and
hides, but in cheese and wool an increase,
and the volnme of business continues
lamer than a year ago, with satisfactory
collections in dry goods and clothing. At
St. Louis the state of business is healthy,
and while money is rather scarce there is
no trouble about collections. Tho volume
of business at Cleveland is much above
last year's, especially in dry goods and
clothing, though the unfavorable weather
retards trade to eoroe extent, and at Pitts
burs the manufacturing interests are flour
ishing, though lower prices are quoted for
Bessemer steel and blooms.
It is a remarkable feature of returns this
year that the Western cities appear to pros
per without the slightest regard to the con
dition of business on the seaboard. At Mil
waukee trade is satisfactory and money
unusually active at 6 to 7 per cent.; at St
Paul trade is excellent, and at Minneapolis
receipts of wheat reach 1.900.000 bushels.
At Kansas City trade is healthy, and at
Denver good. There is rather more indi
cation of monetary pressure at Southern
centers, and business is only fairly active
in tho Louisiana region. The money mar
ket, on the whole, is less disturbed than it
was a week ago, but there is an increasing
scarcity of funds at some of the Western
and Southern centers.
The most important industries aro doing
well. The iron business is hesitating, be
cause an unprecedented consumption is
apparently overmatched by an unprece
dented production, and- Bessemer iron is
weak at Pittsburg and Philadelphia; but
the demand for all finished products con
tinues so largo that the capacity of the
mills seemed to bo strained to the utmost,
and while no advance in prices is reported,
the market is everywhere strong.
The markets tor breadstuff's continue to

no support to tins speculation, and the ex

HOME MARKET FOR FARMERS.
Brewers Take Action That Calls for 30,000,000
Ilufthels of American Ilarley Every Year.
New York, Oct. 24,. Morabers of the Ale
and Porter Brewers' National Association
held a meeting at their headquarters in
this city yesterday, and signed an agree
ment to charge $11 as the minimum price
for a hogshead of ale or porter of all grades.
The meeting was a long one, the members
of the association spending some time in
discussing the advisability of substituting
American for Canadian and English barley
for the malt used in brewing ale. It was
at last decided to do this, and the farmers
of the United States can thank the new
tariff law for creating a home market for
CO.OOO.OOO bushels of barley yearly. A. E. J.
Toney, secretary of tho Ale and Porter
Brewers' Association, said yesterday that
the native barley was almost, and in some
sections quite, as good as any which could

track, while the express and baggage
cars toppled over on the other side.
The two day coaches simply turned
crosswiie on the track, while the chair car,
sleeper and tourists' car fell over on their
sides, completing almost a total wreck of

the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton rail

one mile and a half east of this place. The
wreck was cauoed by a misunderstanding
of orders by trainmen. Conductor
D. J. Mnsel and fireman Monahan, ot

Another dispatch says: It was a collision
of trains loaded with merchandise, both
going at full speed, the result of misreading
of orders or some other blunder of a like
nature not yet officially ascertained.
The train from Hamilton had two
locomotives, one in frcut, the other
behind as a pusher. The two
trains had about thirty-five cars well laden,
and each bad a full crew. The collision
made a terrific crash, threw the colliding
locomotives across the track and jumbled
the freight cars, with their contents, in a
confused mass of splintered kind

flames that had already started
on their mission of destruction.
At midnight the tires of the wreck are mak

ing of the trains or their contents will be
saved. The derailment was complete, and
every one of the crews of the two trains
was more or less disabled. The spot is
lonely, and there was no human means at

otherwise have been saved. A rough esti
