Blaine Takes Mills and Fairctaild to
Task for Clarlng Misrepresenta
tions The Old Roman Repeat* His
Tarts' Tax Talk—Minor Political
Mows.
N*w Atuiv, Ind., Oct. 15.—Inclement
weather interfered somenhat with the
demonstration orer the arriral of Hon.
James O. Blaine, "ien. A. P. Hovey. Corpo
ral Tanner, lien. Adam E, King and A.
Towards u*an the rain abated,
and the thousand* of visitors from Ixraia
rille, Ky., Jefferson rille, 'h arl est on, Mad
ison, C'orydon and other point. tram|<ed
about the muddy streets.
Af>o'clock Ttlaine and Gen. Hovey held
a public reception at the Windsor hotel,
around which several thousand people
gathered. After shaking hands for an
hour Blaine thanked the assemblage for
the cordial welcome extended Gen. Hovey
and hfncseW, and returned to ex-l'ongrff*-
man Culberson's residence, where he re
ceired many callers during the day.
Notwithstanding the unfavorable condi
tions lb* street parade in the afternoon
w«» declared by the citizens to be the
largest and most imposing demo&ttnltoß
in the history of the city. A mtta meeting
was held at which it is estimated from
19.0t0 to 12.000 pen-on.* were present. Blaine
arrived at .j:2O and was given an oration.
He WM in pood vote® aud spokes* follows:
Mr Chairman- U<t Wednesday at
Goshen, I c:atf4that Mr. Htvemeyer.
paMettttrf the nqirtnist, had appeared
before the way* »ud mean* committee
when the tariff' was up, and. according to
Senator Allison, had secured a rearrange
ment by which 96400 ,uco wa- put
i»io the pockets of loat trust. Mr.
Mills, chairman of the way* and
mean* committee. in a special
card printed this morning in the Louisville
paper*, denies that Havemeyer ever ap
peared before the committee, or that any
such arrangement a* 1 bave spokeu of was
made for hia benefit. Ido not know what
Mr. Mills means by thi* denial, unless it is
that Havcmeyer never appeared before the
full committee when In regular session,
li Le means that be did r.«» f IMWO before
numbers of the committee in the commit
tee room. then he is contradicted not by
myself but by th* (bmgrational I tmrd.
«#n page 60G3 of the fon§rr*%i<i' (i H>ntnt
for the current session, issued on July lA. a
debate is reported i u whien Breekeurldge
of Arkansas, a member of the ways and
mean* committee, admitted that he had
invited ilavemeyer and bis attorney to the
room of the committee on the 12th of \pril
to talk over the sugar tariff, and Breclten -
ridge of Kentucky, another member of the
ways and mean* committee, admitted
having met ifavemever and his
attorney at another time. All that
1 stated is substantiated by what
i now quote, and in consequence the sugar
standard was changed from No. lit, origin*
ally reported and printed in the tariff bill
as No. 16, as reported by the ways and
means committee aud p***ed the bouse,
and it was in this change that Senator
Allison fluds the fri,ooo,ooo the Mills com
mittee put in the pockets of the trust. 1
may take Mr. Mills denial, if he chooses,
that Ilavemeyer never appeared before
him, hut here were two members who
openly acknowledged they had heard not
only Ilavemeyer, but his attorney, and the
attorney was skilled in every feature of
the sugar tariff, and uot only knew what
point* were advantageous to the govern
ment, but also knew still further what
points were advantageous t- the tru.>t.
The latter points seem u> have been adopt
ed by the ways and means committee,
though perhaps Mr. Mills did not know it.

-IXRETARY FAXB* HILD'S DEFENSE.
I find also in the papers U-diy the re
port of r Democratic meeting in Sew
! York before which FiircbiM, iccretirr of
; the treasury, appeared to defend his policy
j of loaning )0O,w)O,OOO of the people's money
,to certain pot banks without inter* st. Hit
; defense consist* chiefly in proving that
I overstated the amount these hanks could
make out of that transaction. He Kays
that I calculated intent!: on the whale
whereas the hanks are COB
; iwiled tokcep» per e« :oin their vaults,
j Poor hank*' What hard* hips they have to
lendure! iLan;rht«r I tkink Fairchild's
! answer is positively amusing, and it re-
I calls to m»f the soliloquy of the man who
j drew a 110.000 prize in a Jotterv a few years
J ago, when the habit wan to deduct 15
; tn>r cent, before paying the amount
j How lucky it wa*, he savs, that I did not
i draw $20,000. It would have ruined nie to
pay the premium. [Laughter.) Falrchild
; does not frankly and manfully confront
the issu.\ He does not state to the people
how the bauks could afford to buy govern-
I meat bonds when the government itself
• tmid not afford it. If it was an sdvan
tageous proceeding for these banks to in
veal $tt),o00,000 in government bonds, why
was it n<>t Mill more advantageous for the
j government to do it? (Cheers ] I press
this question upon Mr. Fairebifd, for he
has uot answered why, if the hank* could
make 2or 'J\s per rent, upon the purchase
of Cnited Stales 4s, the treasury depart
ment could not make as much when by
f doing what the banka do he could have
: wiped out $60,000,000 of the public debt,
j 1 press this question because it is a perti
nent question.

but if he ha«t loaneJ It to pet banks it sti II
appears a* a part of the surplus, to get

I protective tariff". Tfc» re is a very sugges
ts** point 1-oarineou that, to which I tieg
Faircbild's attention. Between March,
j lNv». aud June Iwf, a vear and four
months from President Cleveland's in
' angnration, the surplus ?n the treasury in
i < reawi t'' : >.000,000 aud the public debt was
only reduced $60,000*000. «»f thi« $50,000,-
000 forty-four and a ha'.' million* was a
; compulsory purrhaae for the linking fund,
i The further fact is rev. a led that there
' was at that very date 0.000,080 of 3 per
I cent, bonds that conld nave t*s?n called in
n\ j>ar aud they were left in the hands of
private holders drawing Interest, and iu

"The people's answer to that ,jueslion is

A kit'. FAMILIAR TAEL FT ARGUMENT.
"My friends, if I had time to do it I
would like to say a few words upon a *ub
jeet i!iat interests yon so much and which
is talked of so much this year—the ques
tion of the tariff. What is a tariff? It is
nolhing in the wide world but a tax. It Is
a tax levied on yon people, aud when it is
levied for no other purpose than of
furnishing the government of the
country with surticieut means to car
ry the government ou, no man of any
party wakes objection to it, tut when it is
used not for the purpose of raising in that
way the necessary revenue for the govern
ment, but for raising millions aud tens of
millions, nay hundreds of millions of dol
lars or more of revenue for which the
government has no use, then, my friends
the government puts its bauds into your
pockets aud robs you of your daily earn
ings. [Applause. { I'pon every article of
foreign manufacture that la brought
into your country for sale thi* tax
is levied. It is collected in the custom
houses of the United States. It is first paid
by the man who brings goods hen', and
then of course he put* that tax upon the
price* which he paid for the goods, aud
*eils it for that increased price when ke
dispose* of it to the merchants. Then
when the merchant sella it to you he keeps
on that tax in the price which he charges
you; otherwise he could not carry on his
business 24 hours.
tUX TARIFF ANI> PI SINKS*.
He adverted to the treasury surplus, aud
said that was Juat so much money taken
out of the country. "That is just so much
money which the people might use in
their many business transactions and in
supplying their daily wants, and would so
use it were it not locked up in the vaults of
the treasury. My friends." coutinued he,
"our «pponents *■*/ this tarkf Is for
the benefit of the laboring man, a* if it
could p s>ibly be for the benefit of the la
boring man to tax him on all he wear*, on
all the tools and implements of his trade,
and wheu he diea carry him In a taxed
Collin to the grave. No; tnatis simply an
absurdity—the idea that a nation can be
made rich by heavily taxing its people far
beyond what the necessities of the govern
ment require. The idea that a man can be
bettered by taxing him on all the neces
saries of lifo i* nothing short of an al>-
surdity. (Applause. J
Hut the Kepublicsn* state that tfce Demo
crats propose to br<.ak down all the manu
facturer* in the eountrv, but, my friends,
they will do no such thing. They mean to
give the manufacturers a fair chance for
an honest living, and when they do that
they do all that an honest man can ask.
That is all they talk about, our oppressing or
Iteing the enemies or laboring men. Why.
in the name of all that is good, of what
mannvr of men is th- D-n.ee a ic party
composed? I have belonged to it ever since
I was knee-high to a duck, ss we boys used
to say. [Applause. \ I have watched it.
beeu of it aud seen it under many and
many an administration, aud always 1
have seen that ninety-nine one hundredths
of the men who belonged to the Demo
crat party are laboring men." [Applause
and cries of "that's right." A voice: 4 *Not
for a dollar a day either, uot if they can
get more."]
Governor Gray followed Judge Thurman
and held the crowd for three quarters of
au hour longer, after which the were
driven to the depot aud after some little
delay went on to Indianapolis, where the
judge will remain over night. The party
arrived at 0 o'clock. To morrow afternoon
at 110 o'clock the judge aud party will
leave fur Fort Wayne, where Judge Thur
man will .speak Wednesday.

now ia port or on shipboard; to those on
the way from China and to those still iu
China. It is estimated that this decision
will affect about 33.009 Chinese, as there
are over S0,O» re;urn certlScatcs still out
standing. and It U beilvv.d UhiW are now
3000 Chiaamea in their natir* country who
had lived here before the restriction a-t
was pswd aud who, before the passage of
the exclusion bill, would be entitled to re
turn to this country under the claim of be
ing prior residents.
About CH Chinese hare arrived in this
port since the approval of the exclusion
act, and about 700 other* are aow on the
way from China.
TH* LAW'S UgAMK., CLSAH.
The decision of the court, which is rery
leugthv, declare* that the language of the
act is clear and exact, aud capsble of bear
ing but one construction. It begun to
operate from the moment it w»* approved
by the president, and thouch the petition
ers iu these cases were ou the high tegs at
the time the art was approved, it never
theless operates tipou them. The court
further declares there is no specific con
tract between the I'uite.i states govern
ment and individual Chinese laborers by
which the latter should lie entitle,! to re
turn to this country after on, e departing
from It. A return ■ ertsflratc is re. « e r •
tract, but only all instrument of c\ idea e
to estah.ish the loeutity of a perwwi a!
ready entitled to certain privileges tiader
a compact between the I'ulted State* and

l"p<»n the other point urged by the coun
sel tor the Chinese, that the exclusion art
i« unconstitutional on account of it> being
an ex law, the court states: "We
do not find any element of an < r ;»sf fact >

nothing in th© nature of au offense .u a

aud his departure is not mode an offense;

"COLPMUU3, 0., Oct. 12 ,l*Us.

although I had not aoughtthu u<»miuation,
I aid not feel at liberty under the dream

I approve the platform of the St. Louis
convention, ana i eanuoi te*» st ikinglv
expi«ss mv dissent fr -m the her ti al
teachings of the monopolists, that the
welfare of the people cau be promoted b>
a system of exorbitant taxation tar in ex
i vs» of the wautsof the government The
idea that a people can be euriched by
h«.avy ah.l unnecc?sary taxation, that a
man's condition can be improved bv tax
him cm all he wears, on all his wife
and children war. ou all his tools aud
implements of industry, is au obvious ah
surdity. To till the vaults of the treasury
with an idle surpiua for whieh the gov
eminent has no legitimate use anti to
thereby deprive the people of the currency
needed for their business and daily wants,
aad to ersate a powerful and dauftrous
stimulus in extravagance and corruption
iu the expenditures of the government,
seems to me to be a policy at tariaue<
with every sound prluciple of government
and of political economy.
THE TOTO PLA-IFORMS.
The necessity of reducing taxation to
prevent such an accumulation of snrplus ,
revenue and the consequent depletion of
the circulating medium i* so apparent that
no party dares to deny it, but when we i
come to consider the mole by wbic i the j
reduction may be made, we find a * ide an
tagonism between our party and the mo
nopoliitic leaders of our political oppo
ueuts. We seek to reduce taxes tin*
necessities of life; our opponents kto
increase them We say. Give to the me«*e* j
of the people cheap and g*>od clothing,
eh* an blankets, cheap tools snd cheap
lumber; the Republicans by their platform
and their leaders in the senate— Ly their
propoa*d bill, say. Increase the taxes on
clothing and blankets and thereby increase
their cost; maintain a high duty ou the
tools of the farmer and mechauic and Upon
the lumber which they need for the con-1
ttruction of their modest dwellings, shop*
and barn*, and thereby prevent their ob
tainiug their wecea>arie* at reasonable
prices. Can any sensible ntan doubt as to
where he should staud in this controversy•

used his great j-ower lo defame and libel

Auu Doherty, he asserted was a woman of

no proof of the character of her assailant.
At the close ol Blair's remark* the presi
dent's message vetoing the tall granting a
pension to the widow of Mark Keyci-ards
