of Oleveland.
iling Speeeshes by Hon. Robaest B,
Smith and Martin Maglnnls at the
Wind Up.
With a whoop and a hurrah that presaged
great victory the democrats of Helena
dad the campaign by a rousing meeting
t the auditorium last night. In spite of
to other political meetings the big hall
as filled, and the enthusiasm was enough
raise the roof. The Broadwater club
arched to the meeting headed by a band
f music. Hon. Sam Word presided. He
id he was neither a prophet nor the son
Sa prophet, but he had watched the move
ents on the politsoal checkerboard, and
fis fim belief was that Oleveland had Har
eson cornered and would cbheckmate him.
'his statement was received with cheers
ad spplappe that lasted several minutes.
Robert B. Smith was the first speake".
e congratulated the audience at the close
f one of the most interetting campaigns
the history of the country, that it had
ot been one of brass bands: that It had
sea one of principles and that personnli.
es had played no part in the discunssion;
o that whatever the result the American
cople could congratulate themselves that
he man who was elected would not
ave clinging to his r.armeuts the filth of a
arsonal campaign. Mr. Smith then read
he following dispatch from Chairman W.
Harrity, of the national democratic com
ittee, to A. J. Davidson, the Montana
ember of that committee:
New Yons, Nov. 7. 1892, A. J. Davidson,
elena, Mont.-The eve of election finds us
yen more confident than we have ever
eon. Earnest effort to-day and tomorrow
ill bring every democratic vote to the
oils and insure a decisive democratic via
ory. New York has been practically
bandoned by the republican managers and
hey are about prepared to concede New
ersey and Indiana. We shall also carry
lonnecticut. There will be no break in the
lectoral vote of the southern states. Make
ertain that every democratic vote in your
late is polled and make this request of
very county chairman.
W. F. HAnrITY.
When the rounds of applause which
rested this dispatch had subsided, Mr.
mith said he believed the wires would
)ring a verification of this prediction to
ihbt. The state central committee was as
ertain of victory in Montana as Harrity
as in the country at large. [Cheers and
pplause.] Mr. Smith then reviewed in an
ntertaining manner some of the incidents
f the campaign. He referred to the re
ark of ex.Speaker Rerd, that when the
orce bill became a law "we will do ourown
canting." When asked about that remark,
ired admitted having made it, but de
lared that by "we" he must have meant
'the people," and not the republican party.
Loud laughter.]
In an able manner Mr. Smith reviewed
he special legielation of the republican
arty and its grinding effect on the laborers
id farmers of the country. "Four years
f this policy and two years of McKinley
am," he said, "have been enough to en
ighten the voters and fix the policy of the
overnment for the next four years on dem
sratic lines." [Loud applause.] In con
lusion he referred to the good things
hich years of democratic supremacy here
ad done for Montana, and predicted that
'when the sun goes down on Nov. 8, you
ill hear the sorle of joy over a great dem
oratic victory." [Load and prolonged
Prof. Templeton sung the campaign song
hioh received the $500 prize from the New
ork World. It runs to the tune of "Wear
ng of the Green," and the audience, with
reat unanimity, joined in repeating the
sat two lines of each verse as a chorus.
'ometimes, at an extra patriotic sentiment,
he audience got up and cheered and
houted in a way to drown even the chorus.
It was a perfect ovation that greeted
Ion Martin Maginnis when he got up to
peak. and it was several minutes before
he cheering subsided sufficiently to let him
e heard. Major Maginnis' effort was one
f the most able that has ever been heard
n sobh an occasion. He was humorous at
imes, pathetic at others, and eloquent all
he way through. The audience was not
satisfied with the ordinary styles of ap
rlause and cheers. They brought horns
nd rattles into requisition at the most
'telling points, and many rose in their seats
and waved their hats and shouted. "'his
is not a time for argument," he
aid. "It is the wind ap of a cam
paian, and if the indications are correct
we've got 'em in a sack. [Cheers and ap
plause.] All we need to do now is to tie the
string.' [Langhtsr and applause.] Major
Maginnis referred to the fact that the
young state of Montana was to pairticipate
for the first time in the choice of a presi
dent. Would she deposit her electoral vote
in a vase of gold filled with speoial priv
leles to favored interests and bounties to
avored corporations, or would she put it
in a silver vase which contained equal op
ortunities for all. The people would look
with patient and earnest solioitude tIc find
nto which of them Montana would east her
maiden vote. [Applause.] He understood
he had been oriticlsed for taking part in the
cmpaign while holding the ofice of min
ral land commissioner. He did not think
ie eould do the mineral land bill a better
evicoe than to advocate the success of
demooratic principles; and wanted to know
tf le wae debarred why Minister Linc~ln
-wrs brouaht homne from London and Minie
ter Egan fromn Chili, and why the cabiunet
officers ale all outon the stomp. "And
there is the wild-eyed Warhorse cavorting
around, kicking ip the dust and eating
$5,000 worth of corn a year stolen from the
crib of W. A. Clark. [Prolonged Applause. I
And there's the china-eyed cayune glazing
in the same pasture and feeding on the bay
itolen from the stack oh Martin Maginnis."
[Cheers and applause.]
Millj. Maginnua referrerd to the great influx
of yrung men into the ranks of the demoo
uacy. Years ago they were going the other
way. But the rerunblican party of Summner
antid Lincoln was niot the republiocn party

As the mceting was about to adjourn

whic'h was greeted with wild cheeritrg:

It looked for a while as if the olosing re
pobllnn meeting of the campaign in
Helena would be.a failue, but a flambeea
elab and a bonde btoeght out a crowd.
Among the protni.aet republicans who
were on the stage wire Commodore Power,

Watson, F. I. Lain Capt. Mwiwgget, Col.

Woodon. Chairman Joseph Davis opened
the meeting by saryin that the country was
on the eave of a gret nation&l, state and
county victorty. Lheere.1 Col. BuoSkin
sonh fato over an botr, ind reeVlters much
applause. He etated lb his pealS re
marks that hae was Indisposed, and his
heaters should attribute any shortcomings
in his speaech to that clroumetance. He
handled the dry details of the tariff ques
tion in an Interesting manner. When he
a id the republicans had reduced the tax
on hair pins the ladies became interested,
and he told a good smany funny thinug
about thSa indispenstbie atiele of a
woman's toilet. He rateed a great laugh
over the hairpin, telling how it could walk
up two flights of stairs and down a long
hall to a man's office and lie down on the
floor where the man's wife could see it. The
colonel also talked about silver, wool, lead
tin plate, and pearl buttons and all the de
tails of the tariff question from the now
familiar republican standpoint. He said
that the people's party would he against the
true interests of silver and that the busi
ness of loaning money to tbhe fat mer would
be equivalent to Uncle Sam hangihg out
the three ball sign of a pawnbroker.
Mr. Weed complimented the ladies upon
beang present and thanked those who had
so nicely decorated the stage with potted
plants, pictures of Harrison and Reid, and
the national colors. On the silver question
he said all Monsanians were agreed and the
only question was how to get free and un
limed coinage. To obtain this the people
must go either to the republican or demo
cratic parties. He did not consider the
people's party to be in the proposition to
any extent, and claimedthat the republican
party was the one to look to. His remarks
on the tariff were lengthy and exhaustive.
He elosed at 11 V. m- after the flambean
club had got tired of blowing their fish
horns whenever the audience applanded.

Yesterday was a lively day in Helena
among thd politicians. Candidates who
have been working mostly on the outlide
for a week or more, were busy in town re
pairing their fences, and all day long Main
street was thronged with men disouseang
the merits of the various candidates and
the chances of their election. The tide was
all toward the democrats and the impres
sion was general that Lewis and Clarke
would give every candidate, with possibly
one or two exceptions, an fair m.njority.
There was considerable betting on the gen
eral result, but the demoolate were com
pelled to give odds of $100 to $90 to get re
publican money. At this rate about $,000
wap wagered. On the results in Montana
several bets at even money were made on
the national ticket, and a number on the
gobernatorlal renult un the same terms.
Matt Murphy, the cattleman, had $r0,000
to bet on the result but he found no takers.
He managed to place $200 even on Cleve
land carrying Montana, Commodore Power
taking Her. slon. He also managed to find
$400 against his $600 on the general result.
Late in the eveninr some or Barden's
friends offered to bet $600 on his success.
This was covered by Garrett's supporters
as soon as they heard of it, and then $3,000
was offered by the Garrett men against
$2,500, but there were no takers. There
were hundreds of dollars offered on Curtis,
but no one could be found willing to bet
on Sanders. Nolan stock was also booming
last night, and about $300 was wagered on
nim against $250 on Newman.
From some source the republicans Mecored
a fresh supply of money, and an attempt
was made to use it in buying democratic
workers. The money was not disbursed by
County Committeeman Davis, and he is not
supposed to know anything about it. The
money was doled out by members of the
party who are neither candidates nor ident
ified with the county committee. The gen
eral impression is that it is part of the
money left by Jack Carter, with his broth
er's particular friends, to be used in the
election of two of the republican legislative
nominees. Democratic workers who were
approached were only asked to work for
these two legislative candidates.
The republican county committee is
aetually without funds. Workers yester
day were sent away with promises. In the
evening Wm. Bigerstaff was given the fol
lowing order on Ig Miller:
Nov. 7, '92.
Give bearer one keg of beer and charge to
committee. JOSt DAVIS, Chairman.
The order was presented at Mr. Miller's,
but refused, because there was no cash with
it, and apparently no credit behind it. The
ksg was intended for Bradley, the blind
colored man, and his friends, but they did
not get it. Mr. Bigerstaff said last night
it was what they called giving a man a
"switch"-or an order that it was not in
tended should bring anything.
