afterwatd began the opening debate
of tbe campaign, Capt. lis E. Douglass
introducing tnem to an audience of
about 250 voters.
The Hon. Zarb Taj lor.
Mr. Taylor began by Having that
two years ago tue Republican party
placed him in nomination for Con
gress, ine nominauon was rat, lied by
toe people at Ine ba!lot box. Now
tbat he bad served his fellow citizens
be congratulated himself upon tbe
feet tbat his conduct htd not been
condemned. Certainly, wben the in
terested leaders of tbe bemocrncy did
not find weik Bpo!s in Lis armor, he
felt ju tified in icgatdiiu it es
tolerably gnod. He taid tho Republi
can party had nothing to fear from
an examination of its record. AViien
it came, into power it found tho Treas
ury depleted aud tbe governmeLt's
boads dppraciaied. Two years ago,
when tha Deixocrats assumed con
trol, the bonds tanned far above par
and there was a heavy burpliuinthe
Treasury. Ho alluded tj lh growth

Hedtlirtd the (iilloreDt iileas whit'b an
imated the two parties. The Democrats
always held a btritt, iron bound con
struction of the constitution and claim
that the naiioual govrnment po. ses
(es only those powers expte.-sly and
clearly delegated to it in tbat instru
ment, while tbe Republicans, in com
mon with some of the founders of our
government, believed that tbe constit
ution was made for tbe country and
not the country for the constitution.
Id consequetctj of tbia broader, widai
view, the Republican patty believed in
internal improvements, in widening
and deepening rivers and in educating
tbe people. TbeWbigs adopted tbislat
ter view, while most of the people in
this section of country dated into tho
narrow view ol tbe Democratic party.
Mr. Taylor intimated that the differ
ence between lhe industiial position
of the Noitb end 8 iu'h was due to the
different views he st by tbe two teo
tions in regard to the proper methed of
and tbat the railway sye terns of the
Aorta and ner large manufacturing in
etitutions weie ii d.rectly tbe results of
tbe looter methods of construction
prevalent n that section. The South, at
the beginning ol tue late civil war, bad
no factoiies, no lailroeds and no pub

that struggle ou) ooe resu t could
follow, tier people did not bulieve in

Mr. Tavlor declared bimeelf in favor
of the toriff views maintained by
the Kepubl.can party, because tbey
not only protecied our people and
their capital, but because it brings a
higher scalu of wages to the Ameiican
workinyman. Tbe Democrats have
always c ontended for free trade, lie
dweit upon the epecial need for pro
tection at tit a day, wben the booth
was attempting tj develop bor vust
scores ot natural - wealth, but
added thaf, in spite of tbis
incei.tive, the tendeney cf tbe
Democratic party had always ' been
toward free trade. For twenty vears,
iu their platforms and rpeeckes, the
Democrats have Deen telimg us wbat
tbey expected to do acd wbat teforois
tbey expected to muke so soon as tbey
come into power. They promised to
reform the tariff and tj collect only

umletstood, bad taid he would have

been in CoDgrrs?. Mr. Taylor sa d
said tbat this bill, wt,ich was intro
duccd in tbe icteiest cf free trade,
was deleated, thanks to the co-opera1
tion of a few protection Democrats.
Wben tho bill was Dendine in

Tbe Democrats intended to give tbe
country an economical government.
yet daring their first year the expenses
of the government were increased

eoingon. Ihree deficiency calls have
been sent to Congress by heads of de-

financial affairs of the country are in a

wvrking'iien rfceived? Nothing bnt
glrikep, bloodshed and aesesinations
have followed, and for the first
time in the history of 'our
country tho ted fltg of atarchy
and socialism has waved clove the
stars and stripes. A revered li adcr c f
the Democratic pa:ty, foreseeing; the
labor troubles which would follow
bueinees deprorsion.suggested a policy
of s rengthening our const defences,
a work nf great magnitude, wbicu
would luruisu enipioymeoi to a vatr.
numlx-r of workingmen, but bis voice
was disregaraeu oy tue party leaaors.
Mr. Tavlor then to k up the Demo
cratic position on the financial con
duct of the Democratic administration,
which is now attempting todry npthe
res-urces of the people by making a
single standard. This would enhance
tbe value ot money, in comparison
with other representatives of wealth,
make debts harder to pay and make
tha rich grow richer while . the
poor btcame poorer. Tbe Demo
crats, after charging the Repub
licans with maintaining a large
reserve idle in the Tressiuv. are
-guilty of the same fanlt, and that, too,
on a greater scale, tney were guilty
of positive neglect of duty in nt ap
plying it to tie reoucuonoitne public

Mr. Thelan began by ayirg te

false impressions which his opponent's

of hrs heaierc. Tbe c n'tst between
bimeelf aud his opponent is one of
ideas a warfaie of principles anl of
politicsl beliefs. Upon these mm
will differ, and may differ hones:ly.
The speaker is a Democrat. The span

hnnnr be bad received at the bands
cf his party, and be trusted that by
the exercise ol ins tkst endeavors,
he might prove in a measure woitby
of it. Returning to tho address juet
dnlivered by his opponent, in which
the two great
were arrayed against each other, he
said: In order to examine into the

we must look into those things which
have been. The stream is but a con
tinuation of its source, la all its
corns the bread liver bears traces of

lican party biats out tbe simile.
Whatever of eood has been in the
mission of tbe Republican party has
been accomplished'. It has seen i s
day. Tbe very fundamental idea of
the par;y was tbe violation not only
of the spirit but the letter of the con-
aii'ution. Since its organization great

OCTOBER 7, 1886.
tbe ballot box, about which my oppo
nent speaks so much in the etorv of
the election of 1176, and reflect that
Hayes, the greatest fraud of all,
rewarded every one who aided
him in the swindle, from
John Sherman down to the lowest
member of the Returning Board; or
Garfield, as a man in private walks ol
life, nothing ill cm be said, and of the
d-l nothing ill should bespoken,
but a3 an apxtlo of purity he was
tadly deficient-there are too many
chatgns to leave it a matter cf douh.
tbat tbe
clung to him as it had to his pieiltc?e
gors; and last of all came Aithur,
placed in the Preeident'al cbair by ec
cident, whose cllicial record in con
nection with civil tervice reform was
so foal tbat it was lepudiated even by
so rank a fraud as Rutherford B.
Hayes. Then, lost to all sense cf de
cency, in 1 134 they chose for their
candidate that most statesman-like
sham, the meanest, moil despicable
one of them all, James G. Blaine, of
whom it may be said, as it wai of
Bacon, that he was "the brightest, wit
tiest, meanest of uankiud." But they
bad gone too far. All the respectable
element within the party felt outraged,
and the great political cabai was
broken by the very vices which
bad kept it in power so long, and
which it believed were invincible. It
had gone too far. Tbe American peo
ple are too noh'e to rermit such a
msn to enter the White House.
Tbe Republican party have com
mitted evry possible crime avalii't
the people. 'Since the days of Nero
aud theCVaarstlicra has been noeuch
record. We must, however, give them
credit for not a litt'e found political
sens. They evtry row and then go
oubsidn of their own partv linoi to get
some thing fresh and tempting to place
before the people, ju t as they did two
years a.'o, when they nominated my
opponent, Mr. Taylor.
Mr. l'helan then began to
delivered by Mr. Taylor. Owing ta
many ciicnmttanccj the line of tie
markation between, the two political
parties was not so closely drawn as it
might bo. Cjrcerningtue main prin
ciples, as s'ated in tho earlier portion
of bis address, there could be nodouht,
but owing to the immense size of the
countiy and the many conflicting in
Uresis wnich had weight in different
sections, both patties were divided
within themselves on questions
pertaining to the details of leg
islation. The position of Pri si
dent Cleveland on tbe silver bill,
for example, is not in (coord with
the v ews of all the Democratic mem
bers of the Houso. The Republicans,
too, are divided ou this and other
questions. It mult be remembered
that these are new quretions which
are now in prccistof disjuision, and
upon which publio opinion has not
had time to crystnlize. He would
mention, however, that a Democrat
introduced tbe free coinage bill into
the loweriouse. If the Republican
party bad been in
they had an opportunity for passing
tbe bill, but ninety-one voted against
it. The question is still in the in-
ciptency ot discussion; it is not now
a pressing question oi importance iu
a pattv sense, ss some would have
youlieliove. As the national btnk
notes are retireu irom year vu yot,
the Issue grows mote and more im
portant, and ia the meantime the
char wine of correct public opinion
rises to tbe surface as the fermenting
proceBi cf diicnB?ion goes on. wnen
flu nnnminn becomes an active issue
the political parties will b prepared
to deal with if. Concerning the

Unwished next to up a nties
tion upou which bis opponent had de
vtvud much time the question of
it is the custom of Republicans to
smiak of protection bo as to coofusa
the peup'o and produce wronn in-pret-sion.
It was a question which .n ipl

jaws certainly need revision, s he

then reviewed tli customs duties on
a Inner list of article.', end closed by
saying tbat tho prot'Cion bills of the
past bad boan passed not so much in
the interest of the American media- ic
and working man ss for the bene
fit cf capitalists in certain sec
tions of the country. The froutb is
now beginning to g-t a Utile berellt
from it. Another question upon wh ch
grett stress was laid by his opponent
wai the uistr mil. ire tavoreu mo
principal undetlyii g tbis bill, but the
Republicans had incorporated so
many clauses that the principle ol
Federal aid io education was lost sight
of In the party questions involved.
It was a
on a new fiald. If the bill as origi
nally placed before Conareas had been
accepted by tbe Republicans it would
have passed. But tbey desired, In the
linn nf the Tjolicv of the Dartv. to reack
out and assume con1 rol of local insti
tutions, which policy wai repugnant
to Democratic principles. A compro
mise, or lather a substitute, for tbe
itlair bill proposed to give the pro
ceeds of sales of public lands to the
States for school purpoies. The
speaker read a letter from the geaeral
land office, giving data which lod to a
belief thBt the proceeds from this
eource would equal if not exceed tbe
amount to be disbursed nndor

one sided and onerous in Its condi

should bo rejiiet-'d, yet we believe that
it would be best both for the company
and tho Taxing Dii-trlet. to make same
contract in order to adjust and finally
ssttle the differences heretofore exist
ing between them touching the mst
teis embraced in rejected contract.
Accordingly we hereby authorlzs and
instruct the directors of this company
to renew negotiations with tbe Taxing
District authorities and have conli
tlencs in (heir bnsinefs skill aud judg
