"Ho Rattled for tho Right mill Dared to

low," so Says Allen W. Thur
man. Colu.mhus, Ohio, Nov. 8. Allen Thur
man, son of Judge Thurman, lu whoso honor a
banquet Is to be given November 13, addressed
a jollification meeting at Hamilton, Butler
County, tho home of Governor Campbell, this
evening and gave the credit ot tho recent vic
tory to ox-President Cleveland, and nt tho
samo time paid him tho following haudsomo
tribute: "Yet this was tho issue, plain and
simple, brought about by tho McKinley bill,
and to the man, Grover Cleveland, who three
years ago boldly and fearlessly attacked this
whole system, more than to any other, do we
owo this victor. Never for one moment,
amidst all the abuse that was heaped upon him,
did he falter or his courage fail. Believ
ing in the truth and justice of his
position, believing that tho Government had no
right to take money from the pockets of tho
people solely for tho benefit of a particular
class, he continued year after year when others
hesitated to battle for tho right, and now, when
all are eager to join in the affray, certainly
this fact, that he dared to lead when
scarcely any dared to follow, sIiowb
the metal he is made of; and I bc
lievo that the whole people will see to it that ho,
and he only, shall bo again chosen as their
leader in '92. If ever man spoko the truth,
surely he did when he said a few days ago, 'No
one has a greater right to rejoice than I have.' "
Nashville, Tenn., Nov. S. The Young
SI en's Democratic Club of this city has arranged
for a great ratification meeting and banquet
here for next Thursday night in honor of the
Democratic victory. Among the speakers in
vited are Grover Cleveland, Governor D. 1$.
Hill, Senator Carlisle, Senator Blackburn, Sena
tor Voorhees, and others. It is expected to be
the most notable affair of the kind that
ever took place in the State.

His Opinions About the Results of Tiuis
duy's Election. Ditto, 1J. Kutterworlli.
Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 8. Congressman
McKinley arrived in this city this evening.
Speaking to a reporter about the recent elec
tion, he said: "I am well satisfied with the re
sult in my own district. I gained 2,000 votes
during a campaign which lasted but threo
ir . weeks, mat was even more man l nau any
" right to expect. It Is certainly very gratifying
"The Republican victory on tho State ticket
was splendid. The unfairness of the gerry
mander was manifested most clearly by the re
cent election. Tho Republicans carried the
State by a popular majority of over 12,000,
while tho Democrats secured two-thirds of the
Representatives in Congress and the Republi
cans one-third. This shows tho effect of the
gerrymander very clearty."
"Has tho cause of protection suffered any by
tho recent Democratic victories throughout tho
"Protection is stronger to-day than it ever
was, and it will continue to grow In favor. The
Tariff bill, which was made theissuc during tho
campaign, was but threo aud one-half weeks
t old when the election occurred, and many of its
provisions havo not yet gone into effect. The
bill was misunderstood and misrepresented. Tho
latter was done by tho importers, many of
whom are not citizens of the United States, and
"I am sure that it will win in tho end. All
great measures have ,met with temporary de
feat. Tho emancipation of tho slaves and tho
nassago of the fourteenth and fifteenth amend
ment: to tho Constitution may be pointed to as
oxamplcs. Tho samo issue will come to the front
in 1892, and It will theu be bettor understood.
Our defeat this year is not greater than it was in
1882, two years-after Garfield was elected. Tho
Republicans have not had a majority of tho
House of Representatives but twicu since 1875.
In this Congress we havo twenty-six members
from tho South, while in tho next there will bo
but two or three. Wo havo little to fear in
tho future, if wo havo u free ballot and a fair
Maj. McKinley camo to tho city on business,
and a number of friends called upon him in the
ovoniug. Ho said that ho would take a rest for
a few days and leave for Washington In about
two weeks so as to bo ready for tho opening
of Congress on December 1. When asked If
there would bo any important legislation en
acted during the session ho said that he did not
know of any, "Wo did not leave much undone
during tho past session," ho remarked with a
6inilo. Maj. McKinley feels confident that tho
Senate will pass tho Lodge Federal Elections
bill before tho close of tho session.
IUh' llUTTEHWOUTU SAYB I TOED YOU SO.
Chicago, Nov. 8. Tho Hon. Benjamin But
tenvorth, who declined a renomiuation for
Congress from his district In Cincinnati, ox
pressed himself to-day upon tho result
of tho election. "In my opinion no man could
havo made a successful raco for tho Presidency
of tho United States standing upon tho issue of
tho McKinley bill, and I think tho high tariff
path tho rockiest one to travel for public office at
tho present time.
"Tho people of this country are in such a
stato that not even tho most prosperous class
will stand tho addition of auother
feather's .eight of tax. It was tho
most unwise policy any party could pursue to
take tho stand of favoring an lncreaso in tho
tariff when it Is, and has been, appar
ent that a reduction is what has beon
noeded aud wanted. I think I saw what was
coming, at least my actions show that I pur
sued a wise course, and other Republi
cans knew only too well tho inevitable cou
senuenco of tho McKinley bill's adoption. I
received a letter from a Minnesota Congress
man this morning which read: 'How ter
llblo was tho slaughter. You saw tho troublo
aud slid out, but I stayed lileo a lamb and was
butchered beautifully. Tho McKinley bill aud
tho Farmers' Alliance were too much for
me. I do not think that the actions
of Speaker Reed antagonized public feeling to
tho extent the newspapers make out, aud nearly
every one knows that tho Democratic

where the body was deposited In tho monu

had been placed In the crypt to day Mr. Lin
coln turned to the members of tho monument

"WUU.E scuffling for a kiss.
Interonting Progress -of tho Trial of
CiiAwronusviELi:, Ind., Nov. 8. Pettit's
attorneys succeeded In eliciting several moro
good points in his favor to-day. The manner
in which the pane of glass was broken in tho
hall while Mrs. Petti t was dying was settled by
Miss Annie McIIarry swearing that IV t tit
rested his arm on the casement, when It slipped
and went through the glass. The State had
endeavored to prove that it was broken by Pet
tit while southing with Mrs. Whitehead for a
kiss. The State's pioposition that idiopathic
tetanus was alien to this climato received
another blow from Dr. J. T. Rlille, of Vedders
burg, who testified to having twelve cases in
his practice. The fact of Pettit's taking his
wife's body to New York so soou after death
was explained by Amos Snyder, tho station
agent, who said that if it had not been taken
the morning after her death it could not have
been taken for twenty-fours after.
Dr. Slack, this consulting physician, was then
called and gave good testimony for Pettit. He
6aid upon liis examination he found Mrs. Pettit
suffering from acute malarial poisoning, with
typhoid symptoms. He told Dr. Yeager her
case was hopeless, and Yeager made no hint of
his suspicions of poisoning, but agreed with
him In liis diaguoBls of her case. Tho patient
was wholly unconscious, which went to dis
prove any theory of strychnine poisoning,
which is always attended by perfect conscious
ness. Mrs. Hattio Boiuin swore that on the
evening of Mrs. Pettit's return from South
Bond she complained of being worn out and of
pains in her back.

A SHIP-RAILWAY PROJECT.
GIGANTIC SCHEME TO ME I. AID K
Connecting tho Ialtcs nnil Atlantic Sea
boardOnly Two Days Moro ly Vnnt
Steamers from Chicago to Liverpool
Than from Now York.
CmcAoo, Nov. 8. An afternoon paper says:
"Early in tho coming Congress representatives
of a syndicate, composed of Chicago, Montreal,
and Loudon capitalists, will present for consid
eration a gigantic scheme which, according to
tho present plans, will placo Chicago and tho
Nbrthwest In direct connection with tho At
lantic seaboard by means of a ship railway,
which is designed to connect the lakes with the
St. Lawrence River aud. the Atlantic Ocean.
The scheme will likewise bo presented to tho
Canadian Parliament and a subsidy for its con
struction and maintenance asked of tho Do
minion government. The syndicate has its
headquarters at Toronto and Montreal.
"A United States official stationed at Toronto
is understood to have just returned from Lon
don, and a report comes from Toronto that
while iu Loudon he acted for tho syndicate and
secured assurances from English capitalists of
their cordial moral and financial support.
"Tho ship railway project is tho first great 6tep
toward uniting tho commercial interests of the
United States and Canada. It is said to have
been originated by prominent Canadian busi
ness meu and capitalists, who have always ad
vocated action of tho commercial interests of
the two countries. Erastus Wiman is repre
sented as being one of the leading movers In
the scheme aud is listed for a pretty big slice of
the stock. Threo routes have been considered,
either one of which would reduce by at least
four hundred inilrs the distance between Chi
cago and the Atlantic Ocean and Liverpool.
The construction of the ship railway, It has
been demonstrated to the satisfaction of the
syndicate, would make too time between Chi
cago and Liverpool for a fast steamer only two
days longer than from New York to Liver
pool. "So quietly have the plans been matured that
the first Intimation of tho project reached Chi
cago from Toronto with the statement that a
franchise for the operation of the syndicate on
Canadian ground was secured from the Domin
ion Parliament in such shape as to escape no
tice. It is stated that tho three routes under
consideration have already been surveyed and
one of them favored by a majoiltyof the pro
moters of the enterprise. As near as can be
learned the most favored route is to connect
the Georgian Bay with Lake Ontario by means
of the railway, which is to be about sixty-six
miles long. Tho direct route is through Lakes
Michigan, Superior, and Huron, through the
bay to Lake Ontario, aud thence to the St.
Lawrence. Tho franchise from the Dominion
Parliament provides for a canal, but it is worded
so it can be used to construct and maintain a
ship railway instead. Tho canal, it Is esti
mated, would cost over $30,000,000, while tho
ship railway does not call for the expenditure
of more than $12,000,000."

National Guard Shooting Match "Tho Sun
day Herald" Gold Modal.
There was a time, not so long ago, when a
militiaman was supposed to have reached per
fection as a militiaman when bo could drill
well. To-day, while ample attention is paid to
manual and foot movements, the instruction of
tho National Guardsman Is moro thoroughly
practical. If the country ever needs tho active
services of its militia tho most desirable feature
in the citizen soldier's military education will
bo his ability to shoot, his success as a soldier
will depend largely on himself. If ho hits the
object he aims at then he will do what ia re
quired of birn. If he misses, and misses with
any degree of frequency, he would bo better
employed hi some civil capacity.
The "National Guard or the District ot Co
lumbia is beihg practically educated. It has in
its ranks some ot the best rille shots In tho
United States, and there are any number of
young meu who will in tho next year or two bo
qualified to compete ou even terms with the
veterans of any country. Tho encouragement
of these young men is laudable woik, just such
work as any public-spirited community should
delight in, and to tho' end that there may bo
more of tho emulative and competitive in the
local soldiery The Sunday Heuald now for
mally announces that it will present to the
winning marksman in the contest herewith out
lined a gold medal, to be known as The Sun
dat Hehald medal, and to become tho prop
erty of the successful competitor.
The match will take place under the manage
ment of tho National Guard authorities of the
city and will, In all probability, bo conducted
under the personal supervision of Maj. J. M.
Pollard, inspector general of rifle practice. The
date fixed for this interesting contest Is Thurs
day, the 27th instant, (Thanksgiving Day,) the
match to open at about 9:80 A. M.
The terms of the match are as follows: Com
petitors must, in the first place, bo qualified
marksmen, having made in their regular prac
tice not less than 05 per cent. No ouo who has
ever won a medal or badge or cup as au in
dividual prize In a rifle competition can parti
cipate. The shooting will be at 200, 300", 500,
and COO yards; seven shots at each distance.
Each competitor must shoot in the uniform of
tho National Guard and must use only tho
regulation Springfield rille. Entries must be
made to tho adjutant general of tho District
National Guard before 4 o'clock P. M. of Tues
day, the 25th instant.
MINISTER LiINCOIjN TO RESIGN.
Ho Is Said to He Coming to Washington for
Chicago, Nov. 8. Tho Evcn'my Xews says:
"Robert T. Lincoln before ho leaves for the
We6t will go to Washington aud there tender
his resignation as Minister to the Court of St.
James. The position held by Mr. Lincoln is an
expensive one. aud tho necessary expenditures
are in excess of tho salary received. Mr. Lin
coln has been obliged to return tho social at
tentions extended to him, and this has been a
heavy drain upon his finances. Although a
member of a thriving law firm, Mr. Lincoln is
not a wealthy man and could not stand such
inroads upon liis income. Then, too, it is said
both Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln have had a surfeit
of court life. Tho death of their young son
hastened their determination to return homo to
Chicago. Mr. Lincoln's law partners, Isham
andBeale, say that they know nothing about
Mr. Lincoln's intentions."
