Shirts Goldberg Bros READY! FIRE! Close of the Great Cam paign. Lines of Battle Tensely Drawn. THE LAST MASS MEETING. The Blare of Bands and Glare of Bonfires. Voters Have Their Last Inspiration. Streets Paraded Until After Midnight by Confident and Very Enthusiastic Re publicans. ' The politicall heat which has been generating for weeka culminated in in tensity yesterday (there never waB a hotter day in Phcenix) and broke out into blazing bonfires at last. The glare lit np Washington street from Gar diner's hall to the court house and South Center street took on a fiery grandeur. The campaign was closing as no other campaipn had ever closed in Arizona. The superior foresight of the Repub lican managers had secured the opera bouse and Gardiner's hall, the only two audience rooms in the city of con venient size. The Democrats were forced to take the public speaking stand in the rear of the court house. The Populists built a bonfire in front of the Gazette office to the intense disgust of the editor and erected a stand of their own. The blare of brass bands succeeded the first glare of the bonfires and in half an hour it looked as if every man, won: an And dhild in town was a politician. If the census taker had come around he would have guessed Phoenix at 20,000 and would have en tered it so in his official report. The streets became impassable for a time, but at length the crowd began to divide and the different divisions move in the direction of the various rallying places. The larger crowd went to the opera house and Gardiner's hall, but at length the rooms were filled to the point of suffocation, and stairways and corridors became crowded. Those who could not get in went away some to their homes and others to the out-door meetings of the Democrats and Popu lists. The audience at the plaza was a large but shifting one, and a respect ably size crowd attended the Populist meeting at the corner oi Center and Jefferson. Republicans at the Opera House. At the opera house such scenes of en thusiasm were enacted as stir with pride any Republican heart. As the bonfires in the street below grew dim the sounds of music and hurrying feet scrambling for places above grew louder. In a few minutes every seat was occupied, floor, gallery box and hall was packed and both entrances choked with men, women and children anxious to see and hear. Hon. Thomas Fitch, the nestor of the Pacific coast, but a few hours off the cars, after a long and tedious journey from St. Louis, was introduced by Dr. L. H. Goodrich and opened the Bpeak ing of the evening. The immense audi ence which cheered at the mention of his name howled with delight upon his appearance aud then settled, as he be gan, into silence in confident expecta tion of a linguistic aud intellectual treat. Nor were they disappointed. Launching forth into the middle of his subject the eloquent speaker proceeded to draw picture after picture of the prosperity of our nation at the expiration of the term of office of the Republican party. The word paint ings of Col. Fitch were vivid and real istic. His auditors, hypnotized by the charm of his rhetoric, saw the chim neys flaming, heard the anvils ringing and looms humming with protective in dustry. The American workman was followed into his cozy cottage and even the school books of bia children opened and the wardrobe of his wife was ex plored. He was seen to be in possession of peace, comfort and prosperity, and him self the highest type of the human race. His condit'on and that of his wife and children were powerfully con trasted with that of the wage-earner of Europe, whose coarse fare, scant word robe and inferior existence was but the inevitable result of a free trade policy. Coming down to examine the condition of oar own country during the past summer when the attention of the nation was directed to the sad plight of the wage-workers, he proved clearly and conclusively that the fear enter tained by merchants, jobbers and manufacturers tbat the Democratic con gress would fulfill the free trade prom ises of their iniquitous Chicago plat form had wrought the whole destruc tion of the fabric of industrial prosperi ty, and the present improvement in affairs was but the natural outcome of the relief experienced that they had not dared to carry out that policy as was expected- Never were the beauties, the saving essential features of the Republican doctrine of protection more clearly or eloquently set fortb. The purport of the speech was tbat Arizona should start right. She was soon to be in vested with the garb of statehood. It was of the highest importance that she be found in the ranks of progress and prosperity producing protection. Such incidents as the daughter of Jefferson Davis casting in Colorado today a Re publican ballot and of even bets in the pool rooms of St. Louis that the two Virginias and Louisiana would go Re publican were brought forward as sig nificant promises of the departure of the south from its old-time Demo cratic solidity and its embracing of the tenets of the party which can alone save the nation. It was a rattling, ringing Republican and a Republican whose heart did not rejoice that he was a Republican', at the hearing of it was not present. Col. Fitch closed with a burst of elo quence which shook the structure and was followed by such hearty ringing ap plause as is seldom vouchsafed to a campaign orator. After a couple of sdngs which might ily pleased the audience. Gen. Samp son wa9 introduced and delivered a most interesting address. He described the strength oi ex-Governor Murphy in tha north and wherever he had been, and successfully refuted many of the slanderous charge which have been brought against him.- .His speech was replete with many anecdotes illustrat ing and bringing o'lt more forcibly the points of his argument. After more music the audience withdrew to par ticipate in the demonstrations ot the street below which were growing noisier and noisier every minute. , Cardlner Hall Republicans. This great public assembly mom was filled as it had never been filled before. Most oi the Spanish, citizens of Phoenix and vicinity had assembled there to hear Gen. A. J. Sampson. His address referred to them as an industrious and honest nationality, as loyal to the land of their adoption as to the country of their nativity. They were, he said, of the large army of those who live by labor, and labor is remunerative and readily obtained only under good and wise laws. Sjch laws had been made by Republicans and had been set aside by Democrats. He showed them the friendliness of Governor Murphy to the laboring man, and what he had accom plished for all classes in Phcenix. The speech was a strong and effective one, and was frequently interiupted by loud "vivas!" At the close of this speech General Sampson left for the opera house. Jadge Webster Street addressed the English speaking portion of the audi ence. His convincing manner which was employed to so good advantage in other parts of the territory was brought into play with effective results. The applause he received from time to time proved the effect of his words upon hiB large audience. He was followed by Judge Israel in. a brief, ringing and Burring address on the advantages which would result to the masses in the election of the Re publican ticket in Maricopa county, in Arizona and throughout the country. Col. Fitch, 1 who had opened the meeting at the opera house, was es corted to the platform and further enthused the audience. The Colored Club. A rousing rally of the colored Repub lican club was held at its rooms. There was a large attendance and the interest was still greater. It was ad dressed by Henry Kemp, Col. Millay and other candidates. Mr. C. M. Frazier also made an able speech. If the club was not already solid it cer tainly was at the close of the meeting. The Democrats. The Democratic rally at the plaza south of the court house was made up of a big crowd and there was a great deal of Democratic enthusiasm. The meeting was opened by Judge Camp bell aB the foremost member of the ter ritorial Democratic ticket. Able ad dresses were also delivered by Col. B. J. Franklin, Ex-Governor Zulick and others. Peoples Party Meeting. The close of the Populist campaign in this county was attended by a fair audience. The principal speaker was Judge Buck, whose address was de voted exclusively to national affairs and the need of a sweeping structural change, not of the form "of government, but of the personnel. At Midnight The speeches were ended. The em bers of the bonfires had died out and the ashes were blown away. But crowds of men paraded the streets to the music of a band and they were all Republicans. So closed the day before the battle. DAYLIGHT ROBBERY. Two Men Overpower a Clerk and Obtain Jewelry Worth $6,000. Chicago, Nov. 5. Two robbers made a bold play this afternoon in a down down jewelry store, which netted them about $6,000 worth of watches and jewelry, and the police have not caught them yet. Soon after 2 o'clock G. W. Brethauer, the senior member of the wholesale jewelry firm of Brethauer & Co., No. 71 Washington street, left the office to go to Marshall Field's retail store around the corner and left his son in charge.. Young Brethauer was bending over a showcase when the robbers entered. One carried a revolver and the other brandished a. murderous looking piece of lead pipe. The jeweler was ordered to hold up his hands, which he did, and then he was told to enter the vault, the door of which stood open. He hes itated and was thrown in by a robber, who gripped his throat. The door was closed and the desperate thieves bundled the contents of showcases and cashbox into a sack. The work occu pied only a few minutes, and when the father of the imprisoned jeweler re turned he suspected nothing. A com mercial traveler soon came in and heard the noise of pounding on the vault door. The discovery of the ex hausted prisoner and the robbery was then made, but there was no trace of the robbers. A JOURNALIST'S HISTORY. Arthur McEwen of "Letter" Fame Defamed. The Editor of the San Francisco Wasp Arrested For Criminal Libel. By the Associated Press. - Sa Francisco, Nov. 5, Thomas J.
