Fpecial to the Indianapolis Journal. LOGANrfl'ORT. Ind., Nov. 3. This day will i,'o lown In the political history of rorthern Indiana as memorable In more re spects than one. It has not only witnessed tho greatest political gathering in the r.orthfTii part of the State during the cam j iign of Kh"!, hut also the most novel one Iii the West. Since early mcrning the "Full Dinner rail" brigade hss had possession of the city, and the town has been packed and jammed with visitors as never beforo In its history. At dawn the crowds from the country surrounding began arriving to at tend the Republican clam-bake, and these, shortly after 8 o'clock, were augmented by the crowds which the special trains on all the railroads began pouring into the city, fo that by 10:30 o'clock, the hour for the starting of the big industrial parade, which wäs the feature of the morning, the streets were packed and crowded until It was al most an Impossibility tc force one's self through the throngs. The novel feature of the occasion was the "Full Dinner pail." A carload of clams was procured from the Eastern markets, and last night these were roasted at River fide Tark, and this morning were loaded In express wagons and hurried to the Broadway Rink, where 200 men and women placed them In the already partially tilled dinner pails. The work of Ailing the dinner pails be gan yesterday noon, when a force of nearly 20O men and women commenced the task of placing In each of the 14.400 pails a piece of chicken, pickles, a buttered bun and a piece of pie. The scene at the rink was a rpcctacular one. On immense tables were piled the chickens, fried or roasted to a turn, and at each table were two or more colored men with carving knives, under whose skillful manipulation the chickens were carved Into halves and quarters and turned over to the women to be placed in the pails. Nearly three thousand chickens from the fourteen Cass county townships were placed in the pails. After thb clams had been put in this morning the pails were placed on long tables at the side of the street in front of the rink, and men stood by until the pa rade should pass, when the pail3 were to have been given out. But the demonstra tion so far exceeded the expectations of the managers tha: they were outdone, and there came very near being a serious balk at the start. The parade was to have frtarted from Eighth street, on Broadway, and at Sixth street the dinner pails were to b'3 given to the marchers. The attempt was made to carry out the programme, but the Immensity of th parade caused this scheme to be abandoned after it was seen that to carry it out would delay the march unreasonably, and after the tlrst section of the parade had passed the giving out of the palls was discontinued, they being dis tributed to the crowd from the rink after the parade. Then were, at a conservative estimate. 6.000 people in the line of march, t.000 of whom were Rough Riders on horse back, with fully 1.000 In the floats from the different townships and the Industrial floats and in carriages. A careful and con Fervative estimate of the crowd in the city places the number at more than 40,000. The Panhandle brought in 5,000 people on its regular and special trains, according to the reports from the ticket receiver's office in this city. The Wabash brought in 4.000, while the Vandalia brought in nearly as many. Fully as many more came into the city from tho surrounding country by other means of conveyance, so that, added to the city turnout, the city has never before in Its history seen such a demonstration as it witnessed to-day. From an oratorical standpoint the day could not be the success that had been an ticipated on account of the crowds, al though at all three of the street stands and at the opera house large crowds lis tened to the speakers as well as they could because of the noise on the streets. The speakers of the day were Mayor Dunlap, of And rson. Col. W. T. Durbin, George W. Steele. It. H. Langford. J. F. Scanlon, of Chicago, and Charles E. Scholl, and to rdght Patrick O'Donnell. of Chicago. J. II. Belford, of Colorado. Robert S. Taylor and J. F. Scanlon addressed the crowds at the rink and the opera house. Prior to the speaking there was an illuminated parade, equaling1 ia point of numbers that of the morning. Never in the history of Logansport has tho city been so elaborately decorated. The downtown district is a mass of bunting and color, while throughout the residence por tion nearly all the houses have contributed to the general effect by some show of Hags or bunting.

He was youthful in appearance, but was tt home on the platform. He said Ohio was good for 100, v00 for McKinley, and pre dicted 2T.C00 in Indiana. Secretary of State Union B. Hunt followed with a strong ap'peal to loyal Democrats to cast aside the thrall of party name and vote for the honor of the country and the continuance of prosperity. Colonel Durbin closed the celebration with a fivc-mlnute talk, which pleased the people as nothing else had done. To-night a thousand Republicans accompanied Col.

The officers of the Populist national committee to-night gave out the following forecast of Tues day's election: "The People's party expects every one of its members to do his full duty. The na tional committee has made every effort in its power and the responsibility now rests with the precinct committeemen and the individual voters. We request all our peo ple to cast their votes before noon so that in the afternoon they can get the laggard voters to the polls and look out for fraud. " "We counsel all our workers to see that the election is carried on in a fair and or derly manner, and at the same time we in sist that you shall stand up for your rights. Have several nervy and determined watch ers at every polling place to see that no ille gal votes are cast; to see that cverv man votes who has the right to do so, and to see that there Is an honest count. Be ready to maintain your rights. All we ask Is fair play, and we ask all our workers to see that this Is accorded us. "We have received unmistakable evidence that the Republican committee Is distribut ing a large corruption fund in every West ern State. There are one or two agents In every precinct to handle Republican boodle. We ask you to locate these men; keep your eyes on them, and if they are caught at tempting to bribe a voter or trying to in fluence an election board, see that they be dealt with as the case demands. The re form forces of this country have won this election, and we propose to maintain our grovind and see that the will of the people is registered. "The time has come for American man hood to assert Itself and to rule this coun try instead of money, intimidation and fraud. We have every confidence in the result. We will hold our own and make gains west of the Mississippi, and east of the Mississippi there will be a landslide that will place Mr. Bryan in the White House. ( Wc are at the dawn of the new century, and above the sunrise shines the star of victory. "J. H. EDMISTEN, Chairman. "J. A. EDGERTON. Secretary." In addition, Mr. Edmisten. who is chair man of the state committee, summed up conditions in Nebraska. He predicted a plurality of 13,000 for Bryan; said the fu sionlsts would elect every state ofticer; would tontrol the Legislature, and would win In four of the six congressional dis tricts, and perhaps In all six. This, Mr. Edmisten said, was a conservative esti mate. 31 r. Richardson's Claims. WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. -Chairman Rich ardson, of the Democratic national con gressional committee, to-night made the following statements as to the next House of Representatives: "We are absolutely certain that the next House will bo Democratic, and we believe that the Republican leaders well knew it, many prominent Republicans having ad mitted It. The majority will be u jrood safe one. at least twenty-live. This com mittee has not deemed it wise to go into detailed estimates showing the districts they are confident of carrying, or those that they are making a right for, for the reason that we- do not wish to Invite greater opposition to arous the Repub licans to concentrate their forces in those districts where our Democratic candidates ore making hopeful battle. The wisdom of this must be apparent to every Demo crat, and is certainly appreciated by every intelligent man. "The claims of the Republicans that they expect to carry the House by a decided majority 1 all for political effect. The prominent men of the party have conceded lor s-ome time past that the situation was desperate and probably hopeless so far as the House was concerned, and claims are now made to keep their spirits up."

Sclmrninii nnil Foulke, at Illoominff tou, Discuss the Philippine and Expansion Questions. BEVERIDGE'S GREAT MEETINGS SENATOR FAIRBANKS RECEIVES AN OVATION AT DVANSVILLE. Final Rallies Throughout the Stat Effect qf 3Ir. Cleveland's Let ter In Elkhart County. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. BLOOMINGTON. Ind., Nov. 3. The greatest demonstration in the history of any political party of Monroe county was held to-day. A procession two miles long marched about the streets, representing every township and neighborhood and the various industries of the towns and cities. Dr. Schurman, president of Cornell Uni versity, who was at the head of the United States commission in the Philippines, was the" speaker in the afternoon. Dr. Schur man's speech was devoted to trusts and tho Philippine question. On the subject of trusts he iaid trusts were a union or capital which in many cases had resulted in evil, and it was now the duty of po litical parties to eliminate this evil, in which duty he had no doubt of the sin cerity of the Republican party. The fallacy of Bryan's position was shown in the en actment of a law that did not permit a corporation to sell its products outside of its own State without license from the na tional government. He illustrated by using the ice trust aird ether trusts controlling lecal products. On the Philippine question Dr. Schurman spoke of the unanimous call on the part of the people for the prosecution of the Cuban war, and the only man in the whole Nation who held back and feared the results was President McKinley. He showed the unity of all the political parties, in Congress in providing a war fund, in the. declaration of war and in the adoption of the Paris treaty, Mr. Bryan's inconsistency in his then avowed friendly attitude toward the treaty and his present hostile attitude were con trasted. Dr. Schurman insisted that, when Dewey took Manila and the Spanish fleet was destroyed, under the laws of nations it fell upon tha American government to pro vide tor the islands protection. We could not surrender. Personally, Dr. Schurman, at the outset of the trouble, did not feel that we should take control of the Philip pines, but after his service as president of the Philippine commission he had come to know that the Philippines were ours as a consequence of the contest and that tha responsibility was one which wc could not escape. At night another great meeting was held at the Armorial Theater. William Dudley Foulke wras the speaker, and 'made a re markable speech on the question of ex pansion, strongly advocating a forcible in dorsement of the policy of President Mc Kinley. IN SUPPORT OF LAN I) IS. Social Service Leacrne Is Sending? Oat Urgent Letters to Pastors.. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. NOBLES VI LLE, Ind., Nov. 3.-Interest in the re-election of C. Bt Landis to Con gress is not confined to this district. A letter was received hero last week from a prominent clergyman in Salt Lake City asking as to the prospects for Mr. Landis'a re-election and expressing a deep lntercVt in his campaign on account of the assist ance he had rendered to the people of Utah in his opposition to tho seating of Brlgham H. Roberts. Yesterday letters were received by at least two clergymen hero from Josiah Strong, of New York, president of the League for Social Serv ice. The text of one of these letters fol lows, under date of Oct. 31: "Permit me to urge upon you the im portance of returning Hon. C. B. Landis to Congress, which I do, not as a par tisan but as a citizen deeply interested in the general welfare. "Mr. Landis rendered conspicuous serv ice in preventing the polygamist, Brlgham H. Roberts, occupying a seat among th3 lawmakers of the land. Of the many speeches on :his subject made on the floor of the House his was the most effective in creating a right public opinion. If pub lic servants are to be rewarded for pub lic service, he should be sent back to Washington. "Moreover, the question of a constitu tional amendment against polygamy will come before the next Congress. Many other matters of great moment will en gage its attention, but I doubt if any of them will so profoundly concern ths highest welfare of the Nation or be so urgent as the amendment. If this state ment seems to you too strong, I beg you to read the leport of a hearing given to Mr. Campbell and myself before the ju diciary committee of the House, which 1 send you under another cover. The coun try needs the help of Mr. Landis in this effort. "Furthermore, it would be a severe blow to Americanism in Utah it any of the men prominently connected with the exclusion of Mr. Roberts should be defeated in the present campaign. The Mormon leaders teach that every one who opposes their church will suffer divine retribution. They declare that Lincoln's assassination was the Judgment of God because of his op position to Mormonism. and now claim that the destruction of Galveston was duo to its rejection of the Mormon gospel. Should Mr. Landis fail to be returned It would add fuel to the flame of their fanat icism by confirming the conviction that divine Judgment follows those who oppose them. "Permit me then to urge upon you, as ono of Mr. Landis influential constituents, the importance of actively supporting him. regardless of your party affiliations. I shall be glad to have you make any usa of this letter which will serve the object which it has in view." CAN'T TELL THE TRUTH. The "Wearst" Paper in Chicago Lies About a Wabash Factory. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WABASH, In'd., Nov. 3. The Chicago American yesterday printed the statement that the Wabash cabinet works, in this city, was coercing its employes into voting for Bryan ard that the latter had resented the attempt to control their votes. The state ment was made on authority of a man named John Bowden, of Chicago, who is unknown here. The accusation is utterly false. Of the more than two hundred em ployes in the works not more than ten are Democrats. Manager Gardner says that neither he nor any other man has in any manner endeavored to control the votes of the men, nor is the employment of any man contingent upon his voting the Republican ticket. Such a thing, Mr. Gard ner says, would not be tolerated. The Hearst organ In Chicago also' says' that tho employes of the cabinet works are paid from 50 to SO cents a day. In ref utation of what he calls "this contemptible He," Manager Gardner has complied n wage statement from the books which hows thai the employes nre sharing In McKinley pros- pern y. in otiowr. iw, me worxs em ployed 102 perrons, forty-five of whom were apprentices, and the total weekly pay roll was only $535.

He reviewed our advancement in all de partments of government, our commercial and monetary interests, and their advance ment, tracing it all to our gold standirl, protection and wise, patriotic administra tion. He exploded tho theory of the Dem ocrats as to imperialism, and in closing he arraigned the Democratic leaders fo encouraging the insurrection in the Philip pines, and in part he said: "Henry W. Lawton was correct wnen he said: I wish to God that tho whole Philip pine question could be known and under stood by tho American people a3 I enow it. If the so-called anti-imperialists would honestly ascertain the truth as to the real situation here, they would be convinced of the error of their statements, and of the great injustice they are doing themselve3 and their country by encouraging the war in the Philippines.. . If I am shot by a Philippine bullet, I might as well be shot by one of my own men, because if it had not been for the encouragement they re ceive in America, long since this insurrac tlon would have ended. VThis is a solemn thought, and the words to-day nestlo close to the bosom of every patriotic American citizen, but the lips that uttered tnem are sealed in death; but his spirit will ever cry out against the dark damnation of iis taking off."
