Mr. liynnm sovoroly criticised tho Returning Board and (counting-in provisions of tbo bill as Intended to provide for the counting in of Republicans bettro tho next llouso lsorgan Ired for oar thoy may not bo able to do it afterward. He pronounced this ns the crown ing infamy of thoserlos begun with the steal Ingot the election of 187.;. and the buying ot elections since, nnd snld that the Republicans want to bo without limit to carry on their cam paigns of "sophistry and soap, boodle and Plocts of five." Ho concluded. "Whosoevor hath the gift of tongue, let lilm uso it: whosoevor can wlold tho pen of tho ready writer, let him dip It in tbo ink horn: whosoever hath a sword, let him gird it on, for the crisis domnnds tho highest exertions, physical and moral."

Tho only way to reach a Federal udge doing wrong is by impeachment by the House of Representatives.

MR. CLEVELAND BEES THE POINT. Two lotters of regret were read and an an nouncement made of the others that had been received by Secretary John B. McGoIdrlck. Tho ilrst letter dieted great applause, tho socond provoked a tumult of cheering. Mr. Cleveland wrote from Marlon, Mass.. "The celebration contemplated by your an cient and tlmo-honored organization will, It eeoms to me, fall short In tbo impressions dono to tho occasion it it docs not persistently present und omphaslro tho ldoa thnt tbo Dec laration of Independence was tho protest of honest nnd sttirdv mon against tho wrongs and oppressions of ml'government. Tho reasons nnd justification for their revolt are exhibited In their recital of a long Hat nf grievous instances of maladministration. They complained that their interests bad been so neglected, and thoir lights as lawful subjects so violated under British rulo, that thoy wero abeolvod from furthorfottlty. "Our fathers, in establishing a new Govern ment upon the will of tbo peoplo nnd conse crated to their care nnd just protection, could not prescribe limitations which would dony to politlonl parties its conduct nnd administra tion. Tho opportunities nnd the temptations thus necessarily presented to partisanship have brought us to a time whon party control is far too arrogant and bitter, and when. In publlo place, tho truo Interests of the oountry are too lightly considered. "In this predicament those who lovo their country may woll remember with comfort and satisfaction nn Independence Day that tbo dispn-ltion of tbo Amerlcnn peoplo t revolt against maladministration still remnins to thorn and Is the badgoot their freedom and independence ns well us their security for continued prosperity and happiness.

"And yet, with nil this, wo should not In blind security dony the existenco of danger, 'llio masses ot our country mon aio brave and there foro generous: they nro strong ami therefore conlldont. nnd thoy are honest nnd therefoio unsuspoetlng.

Tho 'lammany Society is entitled to nnd will reudve tho prnlso of nil truo Americans In its unt Irlngelioi Is, iiiado manifest on every Fouitu of July, to keep alive tun spirit and memoty ot that day which marked the enunciation of our Declaration of Independence. '1 hat day and tbe day which saw the establishment ot the Ameil can Constitution are the most noteworthy ot our history.

The beginning ot the socond cen tury of our 1 ederal existent o has witnessed a strange departure from those principles. The party In control of the Government is exhibit ing in tbe executive and legislative branches a, dangerous tendency toward usurpation, and , . -in. t Maaa centrallratlon of power, culminating thus far In tho passage by tho II ousoof Representatives ot an election bill which n large part of tbo pooplo bavo with justice and propriety em phatically denounced us subversivo of popular rights and revolutionary In purpose nnd effect.
