THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1595.
ut one of the greatest Industries of the country for immediate sacrifice, leaving other Industries of the country having no greater claim upon the consider ation or the government practically un harmed. (Cries of "That's right.') No class of our citizens has suffered so-much from that tariff law as the wool-growers of the United States, and none was more deserving of generous treatment than they "So inexcusable was this act that Presi dent Cleveland, who favored a reduction of tariff all along the line and who be lieved in free raw material, was unwill ing to sign the bill, and used these charac teristic words against it: 'It may well ex cite our wonder that Democrats are will Ing to depart from this (free raw material doctrine), the most Democratic of all tariff principles and that the inconsistent absurd Ity of such a proposed departure should be emphasized by the suggestion that the wool of the farmers be put on the free list and the protection of tariff taxation be placed around the iron ore and coal of cor porations and capitalists.' But this did not avert the fatal blow. Less organized than other industries in the country, you were unable to secure the recognltt&n to which you were Justly entitled and your great proauct was made the victim of free trade. (Cries of 'That's right.') "In all the years in which the Republican party was in power you know thai It gave protection to wool, and the act of 1S90 gave to this Industry increased protection. That law, the law of 1890, gave to every agri cultural product of this country, every farmers' product in this country, the best protection ever had before. Every protec tion that ould be given to them against , outside competition and to preserve the home market, was always cheerfully and 'generously accorded by the Republican party. (Great applause and cries of 'That's right.;) The platform ot the national Re publican party upon which we stand this year, much to my gratification, singles out the wool industry and makes of it special mention as entitled to full protection under our revenue laws. - (Loud applause and cries of 'Good, good.') "This is the language of the national platform: To all our products to those . .N?e mlne and the field, as well as those of the shops and factory; to hemp, to wool the product of the great industry of sheen husbandry, as well as to the finished wool ens of the mill we promise the most ample protection. (Applause.) And what the Re publican party promises it is in the habit of performing. (Cries of 'That's right.') It does not make promises to be broken It eays what it means and means what it ways. (Great cheering.) If clothed with power in all branches of the government It will give to this great industry fair and just protection with all other industries of the country. "It was said that if we opened up this countixto the free use of the wool of the world the farmers would be benefited. It was done, and with what benefit you know better than I can tell you. Now they tell you that free silver (laughter) is the panacea for all your ills (renewed laughter), and you have the same money In circulation now that you had four years ago, but the wool-growers have not got as Jch. of , K yu had then. (Cries of That s right!.') As free wool degraded your industry, so free silver will degrada ?UI. money- (Applause and cries of rhats right, too!') You have already been fleeced by loss on your flocks and you don t propose to be fleeced further by loss on ycur money. (Great cheering.) We liave opened up our mills to the wool of the world and both the wool and the wool en mill have suffered. The American farmer has seen his wool displaced by the foreign clip. The American wool manu facturer has seen his goods disappear from the American rrarket to give place to the foreign market. The American farmer has thus lost directly in the price of his wool and almost as severely by the blow dealt to the home market for agricultural prod ucts, through the diminished consumers Resulting from Idle mills. The American .farmer will not tamely submit to this in justice and wrong. (A voice 'We don't Intend to in Harrison county!') The American worklngmen in the woolen milis will indignantly repel that legislation whose effect is to degrade his labor. (Ap plause and cries of 'He will on the 3d of November.') "My fellow-citizens, I am glad to receive you and welcome you here at my home, and It will afford me sincere pleasure to shake hands with each one. of you person ally if you desire me to do so." (Great applause.) THE HOME MARKET. "But, my fellow-citizens, what we want, whether we produce wool or any other agricultural product what we want is to preserve the splendid home market to our own American producers. (Great applause.) It Is the best market in the world. There Is no other market like it, and upon every principle of justice and fair play it belongs to us, and nobody else before us. (Applause and cries of 'That's rieht!') Protection tn the farmer has been recognized from the beginning of the government until now. As showing the imDortance of vour indus try it Is only necessary to say that in 1892 there were 700,000, wool-growers in the TTnited States 700,000 people whose chief occupation was that of wool-growing. line nac uiuuuu v 1 1 1 1 -1 1 1 1 1 I r I r m : i r i v more who were owners of small flocks of sheep In the United States. This industry employed besides those who owned the flocks, it is estimated, at least half a mil lion laborers, representing, with those who- were dependent upon them, nearly 2,500,000 people. There were 700,000 farms, averaging" 160 acres each, devoted to this industry, nd the mountainous regions and the vast plains of the great West, which afe not adapted to other kinds of farming, have' Jbeen utilized in this great industry and Jmade valuable. Every one of these farms comprising 100 acres of land 112,000,000 acres in all-tiaye been seriously injured by placing wool upon the free list. "In one of the agricultural papers of jthe West I have seen the statement that fln Oregon, Utah Washington. Idaho and western Montana there were 6,710,746 sheep, which were worth in 1S92 $13,421,000, and which in 1S96 were worth only $6,710,000. In 1892 we had 47.273.553 sheep in the United States, valued at $125,000,000. In 1895 we had 38.298,000, valued at 5.000,000, and the total imports of woolen goods in 1892, under the Republican protective tariff law, was a little above $37,000,000, and in 1895, under the Wilson tariff law, these imports amounted to more than $60,000,000. (Cries of 'Hurrah for McKinley and the Re publican party!' " "On the second day of April, 1888, in pre senting the minority report in opposition to the Mills tariff bill in the national House of Representatives, I said: "Wool on the free list is a deadly assault upon a great agricultural interest, and will fall with ter rible severity upon a million people, their households and dependencies. It will de stroy invested capital, unsettle established values, wrest from flock masters . their life-time earnings, bankrupt thousands of our best and most industrious farmers and drive them into other branches of agriculture- already over crowded. (Cries of That's what It has done.') It is a vicious and indefensible blow at the entire agri cultural interests of the country. (Cries of You are right.') "Alexander Hamilton, In his report to Congress on manufacturers 104 years ago, said: 'This idea of an extensive domestic market for the surplus produce of the soil Is of the first importance. It is, of all things, that which most effectually con duces to a flourishing state of agriculture.' "Thomas Jefferson said: 'Experience has taught me that manufactures are as nec essary to our independence as to our com fort. The duties we lay on all articles of foreign manufacture which prudence he quires us to establish at home, with the patriotic determination of every good citi zen to use no foreign article which can be made at home, secures us against a relapse into foreign dependency. My own Idea is that we should encourage home manufactures to the extent of our own consumption.' (Applause.) "BIGGEST HE EVER TOLD." "I have said that the home market Is the best market. You know that from ex perience, and the home market is made better by increasing our factories and giv ing employment to Idle worklngmen. (Great cheering.) Put every idle man In the country to work and your consumers will be increased. (Applause and cries of That's right.') And when your consumers are increased then your market Is im proved and the better the price you re ceive for your product. (Cries of 'Good, good.') You remember that in 1SS2 it was repeatedly stated that free wool would in crease the price of wool to the American wool grower. (A voice 'That's tne biggest lie that was ever told, and great laugh ter.) But then you heard them tell it. (Re newed laughter and cries of 'Yes, we did.) There may have been some farmers who thought that was true. (A voice, 'Well they know better now,' and great laugh ter.) There are none who think so now. (Renewed laughter and applause.)

Letter from William V. Allen, Chair, man of the Convention, Mailed to the cbraka Orator. TAFFY FOR THE GEORGIAN SENATOR BUTLER'S LETTER TO ONE OF THE POPOCRATIC TAILS. People's Party Apotheosized, Divided Democracy Denounced and Ar thur Sewall Belittled. MADISON, Neb., Sept. 14. The Hon. William V. Allen, chairman of the Populist national convention, mailed to William Jennings Bryan to-day the following let ter officially notifying him of his nomina tion by that body: "Dear Sir At a convention of the Peo ple's party at St. Louis, from July 22 to 25, of the current year, you were unanimously nominated for President of the United States to be voted for at the approach ing general election. It was known at the time that you had been nominated by the Democratic party at its convention held at Chicago a few days before that time and that you would in all probability accept the same in. a formal manner. Your nomina tion by the People's party wa3 not, there fore, made with any thought that you were a Populist or that you accepted all the doctrines declared by the St. Louis plat form. It was due largely to the fact that the money question is the overshadowing political issue of the age and because you have at all times been an unswering, able and fearless advocate of the free and un limited coinage of silver and gold on terms of equality at the mints of the United States at the ratio of 16 to 1. It was thought also that the observance of a patriotic duty required a union of all reform forces and the convention took the liberty without soliciting or consulting you or placing your name before tne people as its standard bearer. The convention was. in doing so, guided by deep solicitude for the common welfare and acting in its own motion prompted alone by a desire to bring about the best attainable results. - "So much has been said respecting the rehabilitation of silver by again placing it in our coinage acts in the position it oc cupied when stealthily demonetized by the act of 1873 that it would be idle for us to discuss the question. You will observe by the closing language of the St. Louis plat form that the convention recognized the money question as the great issue of the day, and because Populists believe that you are in accord with them on this question you will receive their ballots in November. "It has at no time Deen expected, or is it now, that you will abandon your adhesion to the Chicago platform, nor that you will accept all that is declared in the People's party platform, however gratifying the lat ter would be to all Populists. It must be understood that the party does not abate one jot or tittle of loyalty to its principles. We have declared ourselves in favor of many important reforms, in our judgment essential to the liberation of the people from present unjust and iniquitous indus trial bondage. "In accordance with precedent of our par ty we take this method of notifying you of your nomination. We shall not send a committee, according to old party cus tom. In sending this letter of notification of the great honor that has so justly been conferred on you by our party, it is need less for us' to assure you that you have the confidence and esteem of all. Your splen did abilities, known integrity, competency and eminent fitness for the position justly entitle you to a high rank among the great statesmen of the Nation. We feel that in the event of your election, which now seems certain, that you will carry into the executive the principles of monetary re form to the end that the people shall enjoy the better industrial conditions. It is not anticipated that this can be done with un due haste or so suddenly as to wrench or disjoint the business Interests of the coun try, but that It will be done gradually and in a way to infuse confidence and hope of better conditions for all. "The People's party will exact of you no promises further than those made in your public utterances and exemplified in a life devoted to the welfare of the race, nor will it ask you to abandon the party of which you are an honored member. In your nomi nation our party has risen 'above mere partisan surroundings, adopting a high plane of patriotism, believing that a divi sion of forces would result in the election of William McKinley, the foremost advo cate of a deeply burdensome and unnatural taxation and the criminal policy of the sin gle gold standard, resulting ultimately, if not in some manner checked, in the com plete destruction and disintegration of our form of government. "Your elevation to. the chief magistracy of the Nation would be regarded as a vin dication of the right of the people to gov ern, and we entertain no doubt that you will prove a worthy successor of the im mortal Jefferson and Lincoln and that your public life, like theirs. Will illustrate the purity and loftiness of American states manship. In your extensive and intimate knowledge of public affairs and the duties the office will impose gained in a life that has been devoted to upholding the cause of the people as well as your keen in sight into the condition of our country, in our judgment highly qualified vou to bring about in a way that will work injury to none and justice to all, thus making our government, in fact, as it is now in form only, a government of, by and for the peo ple." LETTER TO WATSON'. Senator Batter Notifies the Georgia Martyr of His Nomination. WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.-Following is the letter sent by Senator Butler, of North Carolina, chairman of the Populist execu tive committee, to the Hon. Thomas E. Watson, of Georgia, notifying him of his nomination as candidate for Vice President by the Populist national convention: "Dear Sir Such is our form of govern ment that the cltitzens of the United States must shape its course for good or evil through the agency of political parties. When there is no political party that rep resents the principles of good government, no party that stands for right and the in terest of the laborer, wealth-producer, and all who strive to make an houest living by fair and legitimate means, then it is im possible for the majority of the voters to express their will at the ballot box. "When all the political parties stand' for the selfish interest and personal greed of money changers, corporations, trusts and monopolies as do the Republican party un der the leadership of John Sherman and the Democratic party under the leader ship of Grover Cleveland, then the produc ing masses are victims without the alter native. To withold their votes will furnish them no relief, while to cast their votes for either party is to sanction their spolia tion, and to strengthen the power that op presses them. Th;s was the political situa tion in 1892, when stern necessity forced organized labor, the organized wealth producers, and others who be lieve In good government, and were en gaged in legitimate business Interests, to meet and form a new political organiza tion known as the People's party. The Democratic and Republican parties no longer represented the principles upon which they were founded. Both have be trayed the people and have legislated in the interest of bankers, speculators, bond holders and monopolists, thus enabling the favored few to absorb the millions of prop erty earned and created by the toiling masses. "The P?i"ple's party was the first politi cal organization in twenty-three years that rrade an honest demand for the free and unrestricted coinage of silver. The Peo ple's party was the first political organiza ticn to make definite and specific what is meant by opposition to monopolies, instead of Indulging In flittering generalities. So successfully has it exposed the shortcom ings of the two old parties that one of these old parties has been forced to retrace its erring steps and east off, for the time being, at least, its base and treacherous leaders. It was the People's party that brought the all-important and overshadow ing question of financial reform to the front. "Thus the Democratic party, so long de bauched and now divided, a party beset from without and within by the gold and monopoly Democrats, who are plotting to again control it, cannot be reiied on to carry out these reforms of the People's party, and to restore prosperity to the American peop'.e. Therefore, there was never greater need for the continued ex istence and vigorous growth of our party than now." The letter then refers to the nomination of Mr. Bryan by the Democrats and says the People's party, at its second national convention, recognized in him a man wrho stands in the broadest and truest sense for American Institutions and American principles. It then continues: "If the Democratic party had been true to the people and its own platform in its selection of a candidate for vice president we would not now have the honor of ad dressing you, one of the worthiest and most beloved sons of the People's party in this official capacity, for in that event the People's party would have nominated the whole Democratic ticket by even a larger majority than it nominated Mr. Bryat;. But such was not the case. it seems that the party was not able at one effort to purge itseir or its modern here sies, cast off its plutocratic leaders, and at the same time it nominated Mr. Bryan. give him a running mate who had earned in the arena of action, contending against the foes of the Republic, the affection, confi dence and trust of the masses of our peo pie. as had Mr. Bryan himself. Had it nominated a man for the vice presidency who was known to Americans as a chief tain and leader in defense of the toilers and producers of the land, one who, by the use of voice, pen and means had en deared himself to the American people one with a past not obscured in silence sug gestive of either ignorance or indifference to the struggle of tne people witn tne money power, the occasion of this commu nication to your worthy self would not have occurred. "The PeoDle's Darty. true to its princl pies, and true to Its teachings, nominated for the high office of Vice President a man worthy to have headed the ticket, a man who represents what Mr. Bryan rep resents, and therefore presents to the people to-day in the persons of Bryan and Watson the best silver ticket in the field- more representative of American interests than any other, a ticket that stands for just the opposite to that for which the Republican stands. "If the people win this fight for finan cial reform it must be accomplished by the co-operation of the silver forces of all political parties. To secure such co operation of the different parties it is necessary to have a co-operative ticket, Therefore Bryan and Watson Is not only the best silver ticket, but it is also the true co-operative ticket. "We have the honor, representing the party, to formally notify you of your nom ination for Vice President of the United States, and hope you will accept the high trust and carry our banner of 'equal rights to all and special privileges to none' to victory against the combined minions of special privileges, aggregated capital and organized greed." R0YSE WAS NOT KILLED CLINTON'S MISSING GROCER FLED FROM VERMILLION COUNTY. f He In Said to Hnve Been Seen in Slielb yville Yesterday A Grave Without n Corpse. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. CLINTON, lnd., Sept. 14.-James B. Royse, the grocer, who was supposed to have been murdered by Sam Lowe, has been heard from, and is in the land of the living. Investigation confirms Lowe's con fession as to having shot at Royse. The grocer was so frightened when the wronged husband came from concealment and began firing that he fell at the first crack of the pistoi, and that is what caused Lowe to feel assured that he had wounded the man. He soon regained his feet, however, leaped the fence and an instant later disappeared in the cornfield. Knowing Lowe to be a des perate man. he felt it would not be safe to remain in Clinton, and so kept on run ning until he reached Atherton. soufh of the city, where he boarded a sound-bound train. A traveling salesman at Shelbyviile, on reading the report in the Journal to-day. wired to a merchant here stating Royse was still alive.

Special to the Indianapolis Journal. KOKOMO, Ind., Sept. 14. A curious cir cumstance, and one that caused no little excitement, is reported from the vicinity of Oakford, a few miles south of this city. A day or two ago Thomas Ray, a'tenant on the Kelley farm, west of Oakford, was walking through a cornfield and in the center of it he found a newly made grave. The excavation is six feet long, two feet wide and five feet deep, evidently having been dug the night previous. The find caused a sensation in the vicinity and gave rise to the rumor that a murder had- been committed or was on the eve of being com mitted, and that the hidden grave was to be used to conceal the body of the victim and to destroy evidences of crime. As far as ascertained there is no one missing in the neighborhood. A theory entertained by many is that there was a plot to kill a wealthy nonresident land owner who visits the place once a month to look after his interests, he being a resident of Columbus and a banker. Hundreds of people are vis iting the grave and trying to solve the mystery. Strange Story of n. Railway Wreck. Special to the Indianapolis Journa.' JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., Sept. 14.

Robinson People Threaten to Hold ) Another f'nn,-.nltnn Ha iiJr.Mtlla Debate and Other Meetings. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. KLSHVILLE, Ind., Sept. Ii There is war among the Democrats of the Sixth district and an exchange of remarks that would not be suitable Tor the public prints is the consequence. It ail. grows out of the New Castle congressional convention, July 22. where ?orce of ;he most radical of the brethren, desiring to ftllcw up the foot steps of all ether Popocratic conventions. wanted to put forth Dr. Charles A. Rob inson, Populist, of Fountaintown, as tre opponent of Henry U. Johnson. This move, they argued, would give to the ticket in the- Populist vote the strength it so badly needed, but the old-time Democrats couM not vsee it that way. They did not sae good politics in permitting 18,000 Democrats to be swallowed by 1,000 Populists, and tney named George H. Puntenney, of Rushville. as their candidate. The Rob insonites left the convention dissatisfied. Robinson, although entering the conven tion as a candidate, after his defeat con tinued in the race as the Populist candi date. The Democrats of Wayne, Henry and Hancock counties recognized him as their candidate, and he spoke at their po litical gatherings, while Puntenney was ignored. This condition of affairs contin ued until last Thursday, when there was a meeting of the congressional committee at the Grand Hotel at Indianapolis, called by the district chairman, K. M. Hord, of Shelbyvillt. The object was to consider the congressional difficulty, and, after some discussion, all except the Rush coun ty chairman voted to remove f Candidate Puntenney and substitute Robinson. The Puntenney supporters now say Judge Hord sold out to the Popocrats of the northern counties and at their bidding called the committee together. The alleged removal of Mr. Puntenney Is denounced on every side in Rush county, and its legality is questioned by every one familiar with poli tics. The Democratic county central com mittee was called in special session and branded the alleged removal of Puntenney as "revolutionary and unprecedented, and calculated to create dissension in the par ty organization which time will never heal," .and asserted their belief that Mr. Puntenney was entitled to the .suffrage of every loyal Democrat so long as he re mained In the race. At Conneraville the committee's acticn was branded is 'an infamous outrage, a disgrace," ?nd a piece of "political skulduggery." Finding their positions a little too warm the Robinson forces resolved on a new step that is, to hold another convention, and on Saturday Chairman Hord issued a call, for a second congressional convention, to be held at Greenfield Sept. 23, to "con sider the political situation in the district and do whatever is necessary to secure the election of a Representative to Congress friendly to W. J. Bryan." Th::t editor Puntenney will net submit to the calling of another convention, which, in view of the change of heart of several of his Shelby county supporters, he knows would take action adverse to his candi dacy, can bo seen from the following statement, which appeared in his paper, the Rushville Jacksonian, this evening: "I recognize in no one the authority to reverse or review the proceedings of the New Castle convention, at which 1 was fairly nominated. Even the members of the committee who held that meeting (at Indianapolis) do not c'aim for it any au thority, else thre would have been no recessity for further proceedings. I ad vocated silver restoration when others thought they did not dare speak, and 1 have a right, I think, to better treatment. Therefore I do not think it meet that I snouia. at tnis day, be crucmed upon a cross cf silver." Editor Puntenney has a certificate of nomination from the chairman of the New Castle convention, and the hot-headed Popocrats of the district have stepped into deep water in trying to oust him. HARDY-MIERS. Republican Well Plased frith the Result oC the Snllivnn Meeting. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. SULLIVAN, Ind., Sept. 14. The seventh joint debate between Hon. A. M. Hardy and Judge R. W. Miers, Republican and Democratic candidates for Congress in the Second ' district, took place at the fair grounds here to-day. The day was op pressively warm, but fully 3,000 people were present. The audience was pretty' evenly divided between the Republicans and the Popocrats. Judge Miers led and utterly failed to show a single reason why the Democratic party should be returned to power. It was clear that the audience was rot with him and had but little sym pathy with principles he advocated. When Mr. Hardy arose to reply he was enthu siastically cheered, and the reception given him was . surprise to the Democrats of this stronghold of Democracy. He han dled the Issues of tantf and money in a masterly manner, and the telling blows vhich he dealt carried conviction. His speech was argumentative, while that of Miers was a harangue of assertions' barren of facts and an appeal to prejudice and sectionalism. Professor Motsinger, the Populist candi date, was also present, and at the close of the discussion delivered an address from a fiat-money standpoint. The Republicans are jubilant over the result of the joint debate, and many Pooocrats declare that Miers is no match for Hardy in a joint discussion.

Notwirli standing the storm whien was threatening and which did break to some extent, the attendance was very large. Farmers and laborers left their woric and spent the aft ernoon listening to him.

La pel had been decorate! more or less for the occasion, and there wer.- many prep arations that made tne event a red-iettci' day for the town. The- Lapel McKinley Club was in charge, and v.as joined t the Anderson Bicycle and ether clubs. Ex cursion trains were run on (he Midland, and the Republican iirum Corps head;d the Anderson delegation. Mr. Henry di rected all his remarks to the financial ques tion. He spoke to the fanners and tli3 factory men on this occasion, and his words, his illustrations and bis stories vere selected in order to make It clearer 10 them that the -direr craze, if put into ef fect, would be c:-'-:lddly detrimental to all from the factory worker to the farmer and from the farm laborer to the mAii.i facturer.

VEEDERSBURG, Ind.. Sept. 14.-The ar ticle in the Indianapolis Sentinel, dated Sept. 11, concerning Fountain county poll- tics, is erroneous in every particular, and the report should be listed with many more falsehoods that are being sent out over the State by the Democratic organ. The young gentleman William (Charlie, as he is called here) McNeill may be sincere in his statements, but his father, the Doc tor, has been misinformed, and fails to re member the fact tnat he has not been a Republican for twelve years. The Mr. Boli var Coats mentioned in the letter is an ex county commissioner. He has always been a Republican, but as yet has not said he would vote for Bryan, although in favor of free silver. The McKinley club of this place numbers considerably over two hun dred, and it is known that the names of several men are on the Bryan club roll who live outside the township, and several names are also there whose owners will vote for McKinley. It, is true that some Republicans are going to vote for Bryan, but there are several Democrats who are going to vote for McKinley, while in Attica, in the northern part of the county, there is being organized a gold Democratic club, which now has a membership of forty per sons. Worrell In Howard. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. KOKOMO, Ind., Sept. 14. Captain Wor rell made two speeches in Howard coun ty last week, one at Ervin Center, Friday night, and the other at West Liberty, Sat urday night. Hon. John E. Moore, of this place, accompanied the Captain to his first meeting, and spoke briefly after the Captain had closed. The meeting at West Liberty was held in the open air, there being no room or hall in the village large enough to accommodate the crowd of 8U0 or more peo ple who had gathered from three counties, Grant, Tipton and Howard, to hear the Captain speak. The Captain was at bis best, and for nearly two hours held his large audience with a most logical argu ment upon the issues of the campaign, and especially upon the silver question. Ex Senator B. F. Harness accompanied the Captain to his West Liberty meeting, and spoke briefly after the Captain had closed. A Chilly Time tor Clieadle. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. DELPHI, Ind., Sept. ll.-The Democrats made a special effort here to get out a big crowd for a meeting held in the court house for the Hon. Henry Warrum, candi date for Reporter of the Supreme Court. The real purpose of the meeting was con cealed, nameiy, to get a crowd for Jos. B. Cheadle, the Popocratic candidate for Con gress. There' were about six hundred in attendance. Mr. Warrum spoke first and was followed by Mr. Cheadle, but when the latter began talking a number of the leading Democrats of the county quietly left tne meeting. Mr. Cheadle had been advertised to address the soldiers of Car roll county at their annual reunion la-st Thursday, and was present, but his recep tion was so chilly that he left the meeting without even offering an excuse. Boyd mid Stafford In Miami. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. PERU, Ind., Sept. 14. An outdoor meet ing was held at Devon on Friday night, and fully two thousand persons were pres ent. The meeting was advertised for Sen ator T. E. Boyd, but the Hon. Joel Staf ford, of Noblesville. delivered the princi pal speech, in which he discussed the Wil son bill, free trade and the injury inflicted on American industries. The money ques tion was also fully discussed. Senator Boyd followed Mr. Stafford's speech In an earnest talk concerning the Chicago platform, its attack on the Su preme Court of the United States and the old heresies of State rights, which he thought had been shot to death thirty years ago. McKinley Tole Cut Down. Special to the' Indianapolis Journal. LIBERTY, Ind., Sept. 14. A McKinley pole was erected at Clifton, north of here, Saturday, the address being delivered by C. W. Stivers. The pole was cut down Sunday morning. A watch was kept near It until after 2 a. ni.. after which the watchers retired to rest. The next morn ing it was found that the pole had been sawed down within a' foot of the ground. Great indignation and much bitter feeling is aroused, and bloodhounds were procured to track the perpetrators, but so far they have not been apprehended. The pole wiil be re-erected on the same site and will not be molested again, so local Republicans declare. Hfumon'1 Effective Speeches. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. NOBLESVILLE, Ind..

Milton Hanson, tho recent leader of the Prohibitionists of this county, but who, since the meeting of the Chicago conven tion, has given his allegiance to the Re publican party, is doine much effective work in this county.

Nearly all ar now for McKinley. - Mr. Hanson is a prac tical farmer, and also a fluent, sensible speaker. His practical arguments find ready acceptance in the minds of his hear ers, and it is believed that he will 800- plish good work. Other speakers have been heard in nearly every school district In the county, and the people are pretty thor oughly educated on the political issues. Farmers who formerly gave the free-silver proposition favorable attention are now againgt the fallacy. As a proof of this the. report of three bicyclists who rode from Fortville to Noblesville yesterday is In point. In counting the pictures in th homes of the farmers they found ninety for McKinley and three for Bryan. StHlvrell at nrnzil. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. BRAZIL, Ind., Sept. 14. The largest po litical gathering of the campaign congre gated at the Rolling Mill Annex this even ing to hear Hon. D. C. Stlllwell. of Ander son, discuss the political situation from a Republican standpoint. Fu'ly two thou sand citizens listened to Mr. Stillwell's dis cussion of Popocratic fallacies. The street parade, headed by a band of music, was very large, and as they marched up and down Main street were heartily cheered by thousands of lookers-on. Mr. Stlllwell has spoken in almost every town In the county in the past , week, and has always been greeted by large audiences. Land is in f ouutniit County. Special to the Indianapoiis Journal.' VEEDERSBURG, Ind., Sept. 14. Hon. Charles B. Landls, candidate for Congress in the Ninth district, has been making a canvass of this county, and, to say he Is making votes at every meeting, puts it very mildly. Mr. Landis is a plain and forcible speaker. A delegation, with a band, from this place,' escorted the speaker to Cates Station and Yeddo. These places being the stronghold of free sflverism in this county, it was surprising to see such large audiences. Many pointed and pithy questions were put to Mr. Landis while) making his address, but he was equal to the occasion and came out with flying col ors. Flocking? to the Republican Cnmp. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. ' SEYMOUR, Ind., Sept. 14.-The meetings of the McKinley Club are growing more interesting weekly. At the -regular meet ing to-night Mr. W. F. Christopher, a life long Democrat, and Dr. V. H. Monroe, edi- . tor of the Seymour Journal, made speeches. Mr. Christopher said that as the platform adopted at Chicago renounced all Demo cratic principles he could not support it. but would vote for McKinley. The club is gaining recruits from-the Demoeratl; party every week and. now has twenty-six names upon Its books of men who formerly af filiated with the Democratic party. Drumming I'p n Crowd for Drynn. Kansas City Journal. There was one point of especial signifi cance in the first meeting yesterday. The committee had sent more than ten thou sand bills through the west bottoms an nouncing the meeting at the Missouri Pa cific freight house, and an extra effort had been made to get the packing house men out. Mr. Armour even delayed the whistle for an hour and every employe of his immense plant had an hour to use in hearing the address without loss of wages, but still the packing house element was but slimlv represented. Most of the men went to the house ut the usual time, and the crowd that listened to the speech from the car steps was composed of the usual crowds that are at the depot ftnd In the lodging houses and hotels of that portion of the city, and the tmployes of the whole sale houses near there. The crowd was a failure so far as it represented the whole people of the two cities. Sunrise meetings, of even the free-silver type, are not at tractive and the crowds stayed away. Uenr, Deur.
