A rally of German republicans was held last evening In Veru halL A large representation of German citizens was present and the meeting was very en thuslastic, the remarks of the several speakers being received with frequent outbursts of applause. The Hon. N. p. Sperry addressed the meeting, and said in opening that one cannot but have a feeling of sympathy for the democratic party in that It does not know what it believes in. As an instance of this he cited the fact that In the recent con vention In Hartford the democrats of the First district declared themselves as opposed to the income tax, while the democrats of the Second district de- clared in favor of the measure. Upon what principles then does the democrat ic party stand. If the different sections of the party are diametrically opposed on the leading issues. Mr. Sperry then said that Prince Bismarck in a speech to the relchtag a few years ago stated that the American tariff was the best possible, and recom mended It to his own country. Germany now, under a tariff on sugar, produces enough, not only for her home con sumption, but also to export The United States approaching the point where this was possible in our own sugar Indus- try, but our democratic legislators have done millions of dollars of damages in taking away the stimulous of the in dustry. What hurts one branch of busi ness Injures other branches, and on what principles then do the democrats destroy, the Industries which it has taken years to build up? Mr.Sperry spoke further very forcibly on the tariff question. Other speakers besides Mr. Sperry were L. H. Johnson, candidate for state senator; J. H. Howarth; of the republican state central committee; J. H. Macdonald, chairman of the town committee, and Mr. F. S. Perry, secre tary of the Toung Men's Republican club. Found in the Thames.

Seym ur, A memorial meeting of the Tale Clas sical club in honor of the late Professor William Dwight Whitney, Ph. D., LL. D., was held In room Al Osborn hall last evening. There was a large audi ence present, representing all depart ments of the university, nearly all the leading professors being present. Pres ident Dwight presided.' He opened the meeting with a few Introductory re- marks iii which he said that they were met together to pay honor to one of the most illustrious men that was ever connected with the university. Con tinuing he said: "When a graduate of several years' standing of Williams college he came here to study Sanscrit. He also studied Greek with President Woolsey. He made a very favorable Impression here. Afterward he went to Germany for a time for further study. He had made such a favorable Impression on the offi cers of the university that he was led to return here and In 1854 he was made professor in the department in which he so long continued. "Mr. Whitney was honored, admired and appreciated by us all who were closely connected with him and re joiced in his great fame as a scholar and in the renown ne Drougnt to tne university. He lived a heroic life, do ing a noble work. I never knew of work so as admirable as his, working under the limitations of ill-health. He seemed to grow brighter as he grew older. We all were grieved to see his health give way in the later years of his life and to see him daily grow weak er, and then the end." President Dwight then intrtoduced Professor Thomas D. Seymour, Hill house professor of Greek in Tale col lege, whose paper was the most inter esting feature of the meeting. He gave a very entertaining biography of Professor Whitney, with an account of his different writings, with extracts from several of his letters. Professor Sey mour is to be highly commended for the excellence of his paper, which will be of the greatest value to all interested In the life and work of the great scholar who for so many years was an orna ment to New Haven. After Professor Seymour had finished his reading Professor Luquiens of the French department at Tale, who was an old pupil of Professor Whitney's, made a brief but Interesting address. He was followed by Professor Pen-in of the Greek department another for mer pupil of Professor Whitney. ' . In closing. President Dwight said: My friends, in the passing away of Professof Whitney one more has gone beyond us to a larger sphere and a brighter land. And we can only say In the words of the sacred book, "We Borrow most of all that we shall see hie face no- more,';, ' - " v- SENATOR HILL SUSPICIOUS UE APPEARS XOT TO LIKE TUX LEXOW I'OMM ITTEE'H WORK. It Is Styled a Republican Committee Gotten I'p for Campaign Purposes Turlry Among the Democratic Omolals lie Uas No Wealth to Upend. Blnghamton, N. Y., Oct 11. Senator Hill arrived here to-day. This afternoon he was kept busy receiving prominent democrats from all over this county, and from various towns outside of It J. At 8 p. m. Senator Hill and party was hrough crowds that lined the streets. i . i . .i ie opera nouse was cruwueu wim .-DO people, and many more were un able to gain admittance. Senator Hill received an ovation when he appeared upon the stage. Colonel J. S. Watts pre sided. He Introduced the senator as "the intrepid champion of the demo cratic principles, who never deserted the party In time of need." Senator Hill then addressed the meeting. In opening his remarks he reviewed the points brought out in his speech In Syracuse. He then said: "I embrace this early opportunity to express my sincere appreciation of the loyal and cordial support which Is be' lng given the state ticket by those who have heretofore differed with me In re gard to inter-party affairs, especially In rural districts. With entire unanimi ty those who have been generally re. garded as the especial friends of the national administration have earnest. ly wheeled into line and are. perform ing valiant service in behalf of the cause, and I should be unjust to them as well as unjust to myself If I did not take occasion to freely acknowledge their magnanlminity and generous acts. They seem. to realize more keenly than do some of our party friends In New York and Brooklyn the absolute necessi ty of party unity in the present emer gency, involving, as it does, the very existence of the party. They are demo crats and reformers and believe in re form within party lines. They realize that a republican victory In New Tork will strengthen the forces of high protection everywhere and greatly imperil all that has been gained and accomplished during the past two years for tariff reform. They are prac tical men who are willing to sink pre conceived prejudices and personal pref erences as to men in the struggle to se cure substantial advantages for the principles of the cause they advocate, and they know that principles cannot triumph except through election' of party candidates. They appreciate the fact that a political party cannot be built up in a day, and that it is far easier to tear down and destroy than to strengthen and construct, and that It is an absolute necessity for a political party to win victories In order to carry out its remedial measures, unless i,t pro poses to deteriorate into a mere opposi tion party expecting no success and content to only criticise and find fault with its adversaries. The democrats of the rural districts were never more united and In earnest than at this hour, and afford an example which might well be followed by our party friends In the great metropolis and its sister city. In so far as the Lexow committee are honestly and , Impartially endeavoring to discover police abuses I bid them Godspeed in their good work. There has been no effort to embarrass threu upon the part of the police commis sioners. the district attorney, the sher iff or any other democratic officer. They welcome legitimate and proper inquiries. If the investigation shall degenerate into an attempt to make party capital for the benefit of the re publican party it will soon lose the re spect and confidence of the people. I it m naturally suspicious of the good faith of any inveat'gattons of a parti san character whteh flourish In the fall and Immediately subside after elec tion. I call attention to the fact that the last republican legislature in its intense zeal for the public interests, appointed different investigating com mittees, most of which were authorized to sit during the recess of the legisla ture and to employ stenographers, clerks and counsel, all which, of course, were expected to be of the republican faith, and these committees were di rected, at public expense, to investi gate nearly every democratic state de partment or bureau elections in demo cratic cities and everything from which It was anticipated some clamor might be raised against the democracy and in favor of the republicans. Their va rious committees have prosecuted their work, and the results have been so meagre and disappointing (other than those of the Lexow committee) that they have attracted little or no atten tion. Their failure Is virtually conced ed and nothing was discovered, be cause there was nothing to be, exposes!, and the result is a vindication .of the wisdom and purity of the administra tion of public affairs on the part of the various democratic departments and cities Investigated. ' ; Our republican friends In their ill concealed partisan joy over, the dis closures of the Lexow committee are absolutely silent over the efforts and results of all their other committees. Political Investigating committees have become the favorite weapon of our op ponents with which, through'.'ex-parte testimony, hearsay evidence and ab-; sence of opportunity for legitimate cross-examination, public Impressions are sought to be created and the public-.. Judgment influenced in whatever dlrec-" tlon tne partisan committees may. de sire. Sooner or later there, will come a reaction against such abuse of offi cial functions for political purposes and everyDoay win oe aausnea oi the true inwards of most of these partisan legis lative investigations." . . " . : Mr. Hill censured the republican' ma jority In the recent constitutional con- venUpn ton Ita-faJluret joj iawsporaw In the proposed amendments any pro vision authorizing the veterans of the soldiers' homes to vote. Buch an amendment was absolutely necessary In order to confer the right of suffrage upon veterans at soldiers' hoimn as had been decided by our courts. He again condemned the republican reapportion ment scheme. Continuing he mid: "Fellow cltlscns X have no wealth to lavishly expend In aid of my candi dacy no banking houses In London or New York to draw upon. No immense corporate influences to Invoke and no secret organizations to promote my In terests In the dark. I simply represent the principle to which the democratic party stands committed before the coun try and upon their merits alone I must stand or fall." Referring to Mr. Morton's coming out In favor of good roads Mr. Hill said his opponent would find It pretty hard walking around the state this full. He praised Governor Flower's administra tion and urged all democrats to regis ter. Referring to the acceptance of the nomination Mr. Hill staid that coward Ice was not a part of his niiture. and It was but his duty to lend hl aid 'now In this crisis of the party. The speech was interspersed ' with frequent outbursts of approval. After the meeting a reception" wan held by Senator Hill at the Arlington hotel. Pafe Blown Open. Springfield, Oct. 13.

While I am writing this you may be reading In your evening paper that tt gale has passed over Florida so I nni determined to "take time by the fore lock" and spare your anxiety about your Florida belongings. The center of the storm Is supposed to have passed west of us. We are all thankful It was no worse here. Two or three days of east wind led up to It. Mondny, Observer Lamonette sent news down the river of the approach of a hurricane, in time for people to make the needful preparations, and Monday night It began to blow In earnest. (Imagine silting In state, and waiting the arrival of a hurricane, an uninvited guest, but a very persistent one.) Never say that you know what wind and rain are until you have passed through a Florida gale. How the wind did rave! and such floods of rain came with it! And every little while above the roaring and the hissing, could be heard the "dull thud" of some missile hurled from the trees as It struck the house. It blew steadily from the east, and It seemed to me that the fury of the wind reached Its height about noon on Tuesday; towards night It was decid edly more quiet. Late in the evening the wind changed to the southeast and blew with Increased force for a few hours the worst of the storm the men say who were out trying to protect property. By daylight it had gone around to the southwest, and has blown in snappy puffs from that direction all day, with clearing skies. No serious damage was done to hous es and groves in this vicinity, though, of course, the harm to the latter can not be estimated. Many oranges are on the ground, but not a discouraging quantity. A considerable number of forest trees are down, chiefly small ones. We have lost seven or eight, one of them a large oak In the "swale." Wharves, bulkheads, and boat houses suffered more or less. Several bulk heads are utterly wrecked; the doors were torn off boat houss; breakwaters and platforms on the river were torn to pleces;boats were shattered to pieces. Every wharf between Magruders and Rock Ledge centr has "Uffered. and the heaps of wreckage thrown up on shore all along indicate destruction elsewhere. Considerable water came into our house and the workmen's cottage, re ducing things to a moist, unpleasant condition generally. When I went to my room last night, I found the floor covered with water, which was drip ping down into the room below. It was blown in through the smallest crack in the window which was not Jammed down quite as tight as it might have been. The water just boiled up be tween that and one sill. Cousin Edith, from Ansonia, who is spending the year with me, frankly ex pressed her disgust with a country where one "had to go to bed with rub bers on." (Evidently Edith likes New England blizzards better than Florida floods, and it is rather unfair that she should have to take both.) None of your trees, nor large branch es on the front were broken. Of course everything Is covered with "trash." It was with difficulty that we managed to make an entrance Into your cottage. Mr. Crosby (Mr. Powe's head man) has had his hands full. His nice fall garden a foot under water, banana plants blown down and afloat, two. thirds of the nursery drowned out, etc. But few oranges from the front trees were b'.own off, and back from the grove the damage is slight is any, so far as we can judge now. Yours, LOUISE M- POWE. (Bad news travels quickly. Good news, even coming late is most wel come. The groves on the Indian river are still standing, end this winter's crop of oranges may reach the market in spite of drought and flood and hur ricane.) JlfK. BUSHXELL COXIXG.

Other first class talent will be secured and the concert will be one of the best of the year In this city.- Mr. Bushnell's time is so well taken with engage ments for oratorio and concert that it Is doubtful if he Is heard here again this season. He sung with great suc cess at the great musical festival in Worcester recently, receiving high praise from the critics and the un qualified endorsements of the large audiences that gathered there. It has been a long time since Mr. Bushnell has been heard here in concert and he will be given a hearty welcome In his native city. Further details concern ing the concert will be announced later.

The superior court room criminal side, was late yesterday afternoon th scene of a pathetic parting at the con clusion of the trial of Stephen Glllls ot Derby, charged with periury. Shortly; iiffer f o'clock the trial came to an nd, and the foreman of the Jury pronounced the single word, 'guilty," in reply ta Clerk AnkfleM's query as to whether 00 not they hnd dgreed upon a verdict. As th foreman announced the ver diet the sister of tho accused uttered aj pathetic cry of agony and fell writhing to the floor. Deputy Sheriff Fredericks tenderly picked Miss Oillls from the flour and carried her to the ante room, closely followed by Mrs. Allen Russell, carrying In her arms an Infant Mrs, Russell's husband Is to be tried Tuas day next for the same offense, and she, too, was In tears In anticipation of thij fate which apparently hangs over hep husband. After Mlxs Olllis had r covered she left the court house crying bitterly. Judge Wheeler decided to posts pone sentence until next Tuesday. The crime of which both Glllls and Russell were nccused and of which Gll lls has been convicted was the glvlnft of false testimony In the- superior court, civil side, last April, when John Hur ley's suit for $15,000 damages agalnstj the Derby selectmen, was tried. Hurley's son, Michael, died from smallpox In the Derby pest house about two years ago, and the father claimed that death was caused by the uninhabitable condition, of the pest house, and the careless treatment afforded to the patients. In) consequence of this the suit for dam ages was brought in the superior court. After a lengthy trial the case was de cided against Hurley. Glllls and Russell, who were patients at the pest house, testified against the selectmen at that time, and In conse quence of the outcome of that sulU were arrested and charged with per jury. After Gillie' conviction yester day both ho and Russell were handcuff ed together and taken down stairs, where an affectionate parting tooW place between Gillis and his sister, and Russell and his wife and child, All were in tears, and the parting was a most pathetic one.
