THE OREATEST CITY IN TnE WORLD OCRS. We have now presented to us tho greatest problem which has ever been presented In tho history of the world in government and mu- j nicipnllty. 1)0 you understand how great this city of ours K nnd do you know to whom wo owe its consolidation? We eeitainly do not owe it to the men who mndo tho charter, but we owe It to the men who made the charter pos sible. Applause. Wo have that charter, we , havo that consolidation for weal or woe. Wo have to administer this city ns best we enn v under that charter: whatever Its benefits aro, whatever there Is In it that is meritorious Is , due to tho Republican party. Whv, tbo very friends, so-called, of the charter, are denouncing i ! the Republican party for having given us the ' very thing they wanted. Under tho provisions of that charter we now have consolidated into . a single city tlfin miles of territory und a r population of 3,000,000 people. Wo are told I J lha,t that makes us the second ilty of the world. I say to you that that makes us the greatest city in the world. lApplausc.)

Wo retained f!cn. ; Tracy as counsel tu help us taye that penniless ' ' fellow. When tho cuso was reached f!en. . v ' Tracy was In a cate which was about to bo : , called In tho civil courts In which he wns coun- i ' Bel for the New York Central Itallrnad Com- (' pony. Ho gave up his retnlner In thnt enso t : and came Into tho criminal court without a I penny of retainer of any kind because ho snld that where the liberty of a man was Involved it was moro Important thnt ho ihould appear than where It was n mem question of a fee from a corporation. Applauso, i That Is tho spirit of tho man. Ho did not ask for this nomination. Ho did not come Into .' this fight voluntarily, but when asked by his party he came nevertheless, nnd how courage 1 ously he has been fighting this tight for tho wol- II, ' Jnre of thoStnto inspitoof tho malice nnd false- I , ' hood of tho man whom ho mndo Mnyor of Brooklyn.

Van W)ck's ticket Croker's, 1 should say Is Democratic enough, I think. It Is ushamed of its leader to :, such an extent that it docs not daro to avow its , principles, but wants to sneak intuotllcc. Ap- iiUuo-J J!r. Qeorse'n ticket is indubitably a Demoeratlo ticket, nnd a Democrstlo ticket of tho mot revolutionary llrynnlto kind, Selh Ixjw's tlckot Is altogether pccullnr-n ticket the llko of which wo novcr linve seen before In our munlrlpnl history. A voice: "And never will again." Orcnt applause.) I think my firing Is right, nnd when tho smoko of this battle Is cleared nwny I liellevo tho only thing that will bo vlslblo In the field. s0 far ns Mr. Low Is concerned, will bo tbo odium whlth ho has already won for the wny In which ho has endangered tho success of tho city. JApplausc.l 1 wnnt to spenk ono moment with regard to his ticket. At the head or one of his tickets Is n Judgo cf tho Court of Appeals who publicly boosted that ho voted for Mr. llrynn. In Mr. Low's ticket Is n list of Democrats, nil of whom wcro Clevoland men, nnd below that and In the belly of that column thcru is tho Tammany Hall county ticket.

Urcnt npplnuso.) LOW'S ORAll AT THE DEAD OEOltOF.'s VOTE. We aro told Mr. Low Is not n politician. If It comes tn the question of defining a poltlcinn ns a mnn of political cunning, Mr. Low has not his superior. He nnd his friends hnvo dono tilings In helping to bring about the present situation that wo think would hnvo been scorned by nny nnd nil decent felf-respecting machine politi cians. (Apuliuxe.) And tho Inst one, tho moat Indelicate of nil. Is whnt I nm going to call at tention to now. I dlsllko to speak of such mat ters, but If Mr. Low can sticnk of them then I enn; If Sir. I,ow can bo guilty of Indelicacies. I hope you will pardon me if I nppcar to bo In dellcnte, because tho truth must out. Mr. Low has one organ In this city, tho embodiment of envy, hatred and malice nnd all unchnrl fableness, ns we see In our good old prnycr books, nnd that Is tho Kvening Pott, Hisses.) In to-night's issue wo find this: "Low. George's Heir." lhnt Is at tho head of tho column, nnd In tho editorial column is this, nnd 1 sny this now because It may possibly mako somewhat more pertinent some of tho rctt nrks of tho emi nent orutor who Is to follow me: "We believe every word ho sum In this enn vass will, now that ho is gone, redound to the ndvnntago of Mr. Low, No man who accented tho principles of government as ho taught them can really find nt this crisis nny wny of carrying them out so good ns voting for Mr. Low." in other words, the New York Krcntna Pott dcclnrcs seriously, deliberately In Its editorial column, that Mr. Low is to-day tlicrcpresi'nta live of tho particular revolutionary doctrines which Mr. George Height. Hut Mr. Low is himself in such caper haste to nccejit n heritaco whlc'ils not his t tint he writes n letter on tho subject, nnd this is what he says: "I wish, therefore, to aay to the pcoolo of the city that I Minll glvo myself to this contest in their behalf with a new nnd higher re'solve, ns though I had received it ns n last chargo from his dving lips." Laughter and hisses. A TIME I Oil THE CONTEMPT THAT KILLS. Gentlemen, It Is not tho time for laughter. It Is tho tlmo for thnt deep-rooted und quiet contempt that kills, lly virtue of what fuct hns he tiecomc an heir of that cause unless ho Is parading in false colors, nnd if he bo not pn rniilng in fnlsu colors then the Issue of llrynn-I.-m which we havo been fighting in the persons of Van Wyck nnd Gcorgo survives In tho per son of Scth Lmi. Applause). And we need no further illustration of It than this straugo commingling of candidates in their indecent bcdfellowshlp that 1 have pointed out to you in the constitution of the ballot ns it will have to bo v oted on election day. Now, what this Issuo of Ilrynnlsm menus, how far our success is go ing to bo endangered by tho position taken by Mr. Low. our orator, Mr Cockran. will tell you. Hut one thing Is certain. If my own Assembly district supply a test, Mr. Ixiw will not get over 10 or 13 per cent, of the emiro Kepublienn voto In this great city. Applause. On tho other hnnd, Mr. Ixw will gel a very consider nble voto which otherwise would bo cast for Van Wyck tho voto which comes to him through the Ship Democracy. Kvcry such voto east for Mr. Low will help our cause. I there fore Bay to you that all wo havo to no is to stand together shoulder to shoulder, never hesi tating, und tho victory will be ours. Ap plause.l Throughout his speech Mr. Ivlns wis contin ually interrupted by applause, but It came thickest and hottest nt tho end, when he read n letter from President McMnhonof tho Kmigront Industrial Savings Bank declaring that it was the duty of every man who would uphold tho nation's honor to voto for Gen. Benjamin F. Tracy. Hero is the letter: JAMES M'MAIION'S LETTER. " Brooklyn, N. Y.. Oct. 29, 1807. ITUHam 3t. Mn$, Ftq . CTiofm.nn : " My Dear Silt: I regret exceedingly my Ina bility to be present at ti e meeting to-night. "In signing a letter of Invitation addressed to the Hon. W Bourko Cockran, inviting and urging him to speak nt n public meet ing upon the qucstio s he so ably ban dlod during tho Presidential canvass In his numerous addresses throughout the country, mr principal object was to have him address my fellowjDemocrats who were In some doubt as to their duties in Ihe present Mayor alty contest In selecting a candidate. Believing as I do that the question of sound currency is still paramount, and to be fought out in the futuro by the great political parties, I confess to a conviction that there is a close connection between the present contest and this question, which some claim should not be associated with municipal affairs. "I tb been solicited frequently during the last four or five months to become interested in this or that candidate for tho Mayoralty, but have in all coses declined, hoping that when tho freot political parties made their nominations could see clearly my duty In tho premises. I confess I bad hoped to the last moment that the ItecublicaD party would haveonlv onccandidate In the field, and that either Mr. Low or Mr. Tracy would retire (or both), and n compromise candidate bo sutstltutcd. As it proved, this was out of the question. Tfiereforo I had to elect between the two gentlemen who most no.irly represented my principles and views, nnd using the best judgment of which I am possessed, decided to eiBt my vote for Gen. Trucv, beilovlng his cbnnces of election to be the belter of the two. In this my judgment may err. "I have been identified w ith one Independent candidate running for the Mayoralty In Brook lyn Mr. Schleren. who was electcil by a large majority, hut he was indorsed by the Republi can party. I bcllove tho same applies lo Mnyor Strong of New York. Not knowing of n slnglo ins anee whore an Independent candidate lias beenelectcd without the Indorsemen of either of the great political parties, I can hardly be lleve that in this instance a difference result would follow, "Gen. Tracy I have known for tho past twenty years, and bcllove ho Is thoroughly equipped for the duties of the Mayoralty, bein eminently able, fearless, nnd with a record that will liear tbeclosost scrutiny. "I hopo and trust the meeting will be largely attended, and feel sure the eloquent fpenkcr will clear up any doubts which may e-lst In tho minds of thoso present ns to the course they should puruo In Indorsing for this prent oilier, the Mav orally of tho cltv of Creator New York, Gen. Tracy. ' I remain verv truly yours, Jamfh MrM viion."' Ah Mr. Ivini finished reading, nnd ns the cheering that followed tho letter subsided, there were shouts for Cockran. Be fore introducing him, Mr. Ivins Intro duced the Campaign Qua tet anil they sang three rollicking songs, ridiculing tho frctenslniis of Seth Low nnd Tammany Hall's 'runch Ball ticket, and they got an enthus iastic welcome, a good many in the crowd joining In the choruses of the songs. Bourko Cockran was then introdu ed, and he got second reception fully equol to the ono that had grretcd his first appearance. For tho third tlmo during tho evening tho greater part of tho crowd was on Its feet, enthusiastically ehecrlng nnd waving thlpgs, and whistling, and howling nnd shriek Ing, nnd when It finally died away the " What's-the-matter" mn got In h s work, nnd Mr. Cock ran was Informed n half-dozen times that bo was nil right. Mr. Cockran began his speech with a touching trlbuto to Henry George, whose doctrines ho had como to denounco. It wns a tribute similar to tho one paid to Mr. Georgo by Mr. Ivlns. nnd the sentiments ex pressed were applauded by tho crowd. Mr, Cockran said: MB. COCKRAN'S SPEECH. Mr. Cockran spoko as follows: ".Mr. Chairman, Ladifs, and Gkntlkmen: The awful event so feelingly described bv your Chairman hns Introduced n new o mplleatlon into this campaign of mnny changes and per plexities. A great figure has fnll n. A great thadowenwraps this town. The fierce notes of contention are softened by the tones of sorrow. One of the most conspicuous opponents of the candidate whom I support hns been laid low by the hand of death. While wc nil condemn his meories, we all respected his virtuis. (Ap plause.) YA n- opposed his platform, but wc con fess his sincerity. We havo assembled to-night to do battle against tho doctrines hlch he preached, but before wo protend with tho busi ness of the evening, wo pause for an Instsnt to pa a tribute of respect to bis memory.

" I hero Is much In this canvass lo perplex a cltlrcn ns to tbo duty which he should' isclinrge, especially tho citizen who Is not in full allllia tlon with Ihe party now charged with the safety of this republic. Where the forces last year wcro unanimous In defence of honor and virtue, they have been divided by tho machinations of the discontented nnd short-sighted, and honest men may well hecomo discouraged and then hesitate lo enter In n onvnss where those most deeply Inte-restcd In Its results seem plot ting against their own Interests, i nt, my frienes.

''My'fricnds, your Chairman hns pointed out to ou that tlio nallo al Issuo Is virtually In volved In this canvass. I am awnro that t Is tho fashion among a large and eelf-sufllcicnt part of the population to insist that national Is sues have no lilace In this canvass; that tho city or New York, the capital nnd the rlory of tho United Stntcs. enn sccodo from tho Union when It comes to electing her own officers.

Nothing Is moro nnclcnt than the pretence tbnt elections In States and mu nicipalities can bo divorced from national questions. Why. It Is but n few years ago when under this snuio Impression tho States of Ohio, of Indiana, of Pennsylvania held elec tions In ndvnnce of tho Presidential contest on the theory thatlho Slato affairs should bo not Involved In the Issues nffcctlng tho Presidency; but in practical operation we nil remember that theso October States were mndo tho theatrrs upon which were concentrated nil tho fury nnd strife or pnrtlsinshlp. lApplnnse.

Applause.l Now, I hold It that tho next gravest danger that could over hang this country to tho absolute election of Bryan Is n renew ed candidacy of Bryan. Tho prosperity nnd industry of this country cannot stand contests sue li ns t lint wo passed through last year repeated In every l'rosldo tlal election. "IfnBryanltc bo elected In nn Eastern city thero is no reason why tho Democratic partisans in these Stntes should strugglo to free tho Dem ocratic parly from tbo Populist crew that have captured it. The Mugwumps who aro now leading this secession from tho union of this grcnt munici pality and who fondly b.llevo they can Isol to themselves from their fellows during this con test are misled by the election In Indianapolis of a candidate upon a free-sliver plutform, al though that city gave a majority for McICinloy. IF LOW OR VAN WYCK WINS. "My friends, the absolute and Inevitable con sequence of Tsggott's election is that thero won't he n dissenting voto In the Democratic Stato Convention of Indiana against the pro posal to elect a delegation to tho next National Convention, pledged ton readoptlon of the pint form of l;nl. The strength of tho Democrntlc party is in thccitii a. Tbo only hopoof freeing tho party from tho incubus or Bryanlsm is to teach ihe Democrats of these centres of thrift, intelligence, and progress that no man enn bo elected to municipal olllce who stands on a filntform of devastation, of riot, of disorder, and lnnnclal ruin. Prolonged applause.) "Politicians who are often indifferent to tho platforms th it they adopt are nlways keenly nlive to their prospocts of success. Let them understand that the, cities know their interests nnd will advance them; that the man who can violate tho moral law in order to support the candidato of anarchy can never receive the suffrages of law-abiding citizens. Applause. 1 prnscribo no man for whnt ho hns done in the past. 1 do not seek to froseribo nny Democrat for having voted for Iryan last ) car, but I insist that before he shall boentitlid to tho sutTrnres of honest men he must renounce ihe otfence he hns committed and declare before nil men that henceforth he will stand for the party of honest money and sound morals. (Applause.) " If either Van Wyck or IiOW be elected In this town on Tuesday the delegates from the Empire Stato will also go the National Convention sup porting a rcadoution of tbo Chicago plttform. There will not bo ono dissenting voice in tho whole assemblage. Already ovcr State in t o Union and every city and county In every State except Maryland has adopted resolutions reaffirming Iho revolutionary programme of Chicago, and pledging once more alle giance to Bryan. If with one-third of the delegates in 1890 firmly oplKulngthat propaganda of anarchy and confusion the West ern and Southern delegates sllll rode rough shod over them and conducted suchaennvuss as that wbicti paralyzed business last year, are th y likely to hesitate when every State of tho Union has surrendered to the Populist cont ol of tho Democratic organl zaiio , and when Bryan, or some person more advanced than be. shall once moro lie n candidate upon n platform moro vio lent than that of leOGI If violence and an archy feed upon every concession mndetn them, thrive upon everv success wbieh they gain, then these same gentlemen who aro now declaring vehemently that national politics has nothing lo do with local elections will lead a panic in Wall street as they did last year. THE FIGHT AOAINST nRTAMBM. "They will fill tbo air with their cries of alarm. They will rush down upon tho market, throwing their securities under each other's feit. They will disturb business, parnlyze con fidence, and In the contraction of credit produco a ruin in which other and better men than themselves will bo helpless nnd hopelessly Involved. (Applause.)

"Now, 1 remember I think It wns In Balti more, a year ago somebody naked mo todeflno a Populist; naked mo todeflno populism, and I replied that in my opinion populism was n vonorous declamation based on a fundamental misconception or fads.

"Both tho Populist nnd the Mugwump are haunted by phantoms of iho Imag nation, each one conjuring up the figments of tho brain, and goes the Populist Into the oestneies or lurid rhetoric nnd the Mugwump Into acuto form of hysterics. Tho Populist desires to strike down ever) thing that exists with n pitchfork or a shovel, and the vigor of his op position is suggestive of the odor of now-mown hny.

(Laughter and applause some bogies. "The Mugwump and the Populist nre both thoroughly convinced of the rottenness of our Government structure. The Populist believes that our financial system is rotten, tho work of corruption, a result of betrayal by tho representatives of the people of their duty to the London money grab bers ad to tho Itotbschilds and to the money power. He has constructed a mys terious money power, the habitation of which ho never fixes, the outlines of which he cannot describe; which Is vague and shadowy; which Is alwnys to him a perpetual fountain of In dignation and a spring of lurid eloquence. " Tho Mugwump Is rather partial to our financial system, but he Is professionally con vinced that our political system is rotten, that a majority of the people nre corrupt, and that the Mugwumps alono are pure. Laughter and applause.) "What tho money power, the goldbugs of Wall street, the sharks of Lombard street and the Rothschilds are to the Populist, political or ganizations, party progress, the boss and a host of other phantoms are to the Mugwump.

If you put to him the question bow or why. you throw him Into Indignation, exactly as you would the Populist. (Laughter nnd nnplnuse. The Populist will tell sou that If you only stamp tbo faeo of metal and call It a dollar every body will be happy. If you ask him how nnd why, he will say you are an agent f tho money power and a corrupt tool of wall street. (Laughter and applause.) The Mugwump says, in order to destroy your political organiza tions, upset your political habits and thought, change the course of political corruption on which this Government has been administered since its foundation and tho dnwn of happiness will occur, the like of which no Mugwump men will ever dream. (Laughter nnd applause.) When you ask him how or why those things nro to be accomplished, why. ho says you are a corrupt tool of the bosses and no better than a heathen. Laughterand applause.) "The extraordinary sympathy which has been shown between the Populists of this campaign nnd the Mugwumps Is evidenced by the cordial- llT with tvhleh lh,r h,v. ,rvilt,n In a,.li Alt...

Laughter and applause.) Now the Mugwump claims, and this, ua I understand, la the basis of this entire campaign, that n certain candidate must bo elected because ho Is entirely inde pendent of all affiliations. 8ETn LOW EXCORIATED. " The Mugwumps profess to be as much op posed to the Populist os we are, or at least tbey did profess that a short time ago; but the peculiarity of this campaign Is that Mr. Low Is being supported now upon grounds very different from those which were advanced when be was first nominated. If you icmc'ober, my friends, some four or five months ago It wns argued everywhere that tho business of this great municipality was a busi ness and not n political question, and tbnt ns Mr. Low wan nn eminently successful business man, he was the man thnt should be taken for Mnvnr. Laughter. "Well, as events became conspicuous In the course of discussions. It was discovered that ho hod been n business failure Instead of a business success, and then the Mugiv mps, with that de lightful fcminlno quality of consistency, turm-d n round nnd declare that that wns the very reason that they supported him that he was too good a man to be able to make money.

"Now.lt Is one of the characteristics of tho Mugwump that be can never support anybody.

Ho could oppose Bryan. But It vras ncces nry to mako a serio-comic nomination for the Presidency.
