A Grand Banquet in the City of New York. Cleveland and Carlisle the Principal Speakers. The Campaign of Education, Popular Government and Other Topics Discussed. Associated Press Dispatches. New York, Dec. 23.—The Tariff Re form club held a grand banquet tonight in the new concert hall of Madison Square garden, to celebrate the recent Democratic victories The hall was tastefully decorated, and the attendance Was large. Among the prominent gen tlemen around the speaker's table were ex-president Cleveland, Senator Car lisle, Governor Boies, of Iowa; Gov ernor-elect Russell, of Massachusetts; Congressman Wilson, of West Virginia; Carl Schurz, Henry Villard, Senator Brice, Daniel Lamont, ex-Governor Hoadley, of Ohio, and ex-Comptroller Trenholm. When Mrs. Cleveland, ac companied by Mrs. Senator Carlisle and other ladies, entered one of the boxes in the first gallery, every man at the tables rose, waved his handkerchief, and joined in three cheers, which the wife of the ex-president acknowledged with a bow. When the feasting was finished, Chair man Wheelock in a brief speech intro duced ex-l'resident Cleveland as the first speaker of the evening. kb. Cleveland's hpeech. Mr. Cleveland responded to the toast : "The campaign of education." In the course of his speech he said : "In the campaign of education it was deemed important to appeal to the rea son and judgment of the American peo ple, to the end that the Democratic party should be reinforced, as well as that the activity and zeal of those al ready in our ranks should be stimulated. The grand and ultimate object of the campaign of education was the promo tion of the welfare of the country and the relief of the people from unjust bur dens. Let it be here confessed that we as a party in these latter days have been tempted by the success our opponents had gained solely by temporary shifts and by appeals to prejudice and" selfish in terests, into paths which avoided too much the honest insistence upon the definite and clearer defined principle of the fundamental Democratic doctrine. To be sure some earnest men in the party could ill conceal their dissatisfac tion with the manner in which the cardinal principles wene relegated to the rear, and expediency substituted as a hope of success; but the timid, heedless, and those who, though nominally belonging to the organization, were not of the faith, rendered ineffective the at tempts to restore the party to the firm and soldid ground of Democratic creed. Therefore, the labor of education in the campaign consisted in persuading them to hear us ; to illu mine the theories of party organizations and the ends to which they lead; to recall the promises of political leadership and the manner in which such promises have been redeemed. Never was a more intelligent and honest and effective effort made in a noble cause than that made by the Democratic party and its allies in thie work. Our fellow-country men were approached, not by fabri cated extracts from English journals and the lying, demagogic cry of British greed; not by fraudulent pictures of ruin of American industries if the justice of governmental favoritism was ques tioned ; not by the false presentation of the impoverishment and "distress of our laboring men, which would follow inde pendent thought and action ; not. by a disgraceful proposition for the purchase of their suffrage, and not by cruel in timidation by selfish employers, of tho c dependent on them for the wages of their toil. We have been content to rely upon the intelligence and thoughtfulness of the people for the success of our cause; we solicited a most thorough examination of its merits by a systematic distribution of tariff reform literature; by the effective and conscientious argument of a well-in formed and upsubsidized mess, and by an extensive discussion ol our platform. These are the weapons we used in our campaign of education. It is a cause of congratulation that our work haa been done in a manner so decent, and in its best sense so purely American. Let us not fail to realize > lie fact that our work is not done. Our enemies are still alive and are grown desperate. It would be shameful and pitiable and a disgrace if .by over-confidence we should lose the ground we have gained, or should fail to push further our advan tage. In full faith in the judgment of the American people, our work should continue upon the lines so far followed, until the enemieß of tariff reform are driven from their last entrenchment." senator Carlisle's speech. Senator Carlisle of Kentucky followed Mr. Clevelund, speaking on Popular Government. This, he said, in its parent and simplest form is to be found only in the states. It is no evidence of hostility to the general government to say it ia not a 8 popular as the state governments. It has important functions to perform, and its powers are as >•• 1 distributed as human forethought, could design. In the states the legislatures are chosen by the people and the members are personally known to them. Real, genuine, effective popular government in this country is found only in the states. There ia a great political party in this country, which ia trying to ex tinguish the free government. The principle that the majority ahould rule is the true foundation of a popular gov ernment. Yet there is no rule so grind ing or oppressive as the rule of an unre strained majority. American free men must continue to exerciae their rights, and the forms of local government must be maintained. MR. IIENBEI. BPKAKS. W. U. Hensel, of Pennsylvania, dis cussed tariff reform at length, and re ferring to President Cleveland's tariff message of 1887, said it ranks with the other three great executive acts in American history—Jefferson's purchase of Louisiana, Jackson's nullification pro clamation and Lincoln's emancipation decree. Congressman Mills, of Dexas, was to have spoken to the toast "Reciprocity," but was unable to be present. THE BLUNDERS OF CONGRESS. Congressman Wilson, of West Vir ginia, spoke on "The Fifty-second Con gress." H* dwelt on the blunders of the present congress, and said if the re cent political experience proved any thing, it is that the Democratic party never blundered more fa tally than when it abandons or falters with its true principles, and that it never appeals so strongly to the heart of the masses or the enthu siasm of the young, aB when it goes be fore them in "the strength of these prin ciples alone, On the other hand the Republican party, as dominated today, never blunders so effectively as when it has a free scope and opportunity for the application of its principles. The'recent campaign was fought upon a question on which all the great contests of freedom have been waged, the ques tion of taxing. The fifty-second congress will enter upon its labors with one lesson that none of its members can mistake, and that is that its shortest road to irretrievable bankruptcy will be to follow the footsteps of its predecessor, and its surest road to popular approval will be to present as clear a contrast as possible to the methods and legislation of that predecessor. TUB M'KINLEY DISCOVERY. Congressman-elect Johnson, of Ohio, in a speech on the "MeKinley discov ery" declared himself to be an avowed, uncompromising free trader, absolute, even a single tax man; a Democrat of Democrats. He warmly eulogized Mr. Cleveland, and declared that so sure as he lives, Cleveland will he the next president of the American republic. A massive silver cup was presented to Mr. Cleveland, aaid to be one of a set made for Jefferson, on behalf of hia ad mirers in the thirteen original atates. Governor Boies of lowa and Governor elect Russell of Massachusetts also spoke. IN THE INDIAN COUNTRY. THE SITUATION REMAINS PRAC TICALLY UNCHANGED. Cowboys Aggravating the Trouble by Shooting at the Savages—Big Foot's Band Disarmed—White Men Killed. Denver, Dec. 23. —A News special from Creston, S. D., via Rapid City, says: The situation is practically un changed. Several troops of cavalry are out chasing amall bands of Indians, but no casualties are reported. It ia reported that a great deal of ill feeling and trouble is being caused by cowboys lying near the reservation lines and shooting at any Indians who may appear. There is no doubt that the Indians are the principal aggresaors; yet since the arrival of the soldiers the cowboys and ranchers have become very bold and are molesting the Indians, instead of confining themselves to the protection of their homea. The department military commander haa given orders to disarm any of these set tlera who may be caught invading the reaervation for the purpose of attacking the Indians. THE CAPTIVE IIOSTILES. Pierre, S. D., Dec. 23.—Reports from Fort Bennett indicate tiiat the hoatilea under Big Foot, who capitulated, are on the way to the post.

Washington, Dec. 23. —General Scho field has received a telegram from Gen eral Ruger confirming the reported capture of Big Foot and hia followers, the Sitting Bull fugitives in the Cherry creek district.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 24. 1890. IRELAND'S DANGER. Davitt Renews His Onslaught Upon Parnell. He Declares Him to Be Erin's Most Dangerous Foe. Heunessy's Majority Over Scully Is 1146 Votes. A Row Narrowly Averted on the Official Announcement of the Result—The Parnellites Cry Fraud. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Dee. 23. —Michael Davitt's newspaper, the Labor World, today re news its onslaught upon Parnell. The Labor World says : "Parnell is a greater danger to Ireland than any outside enemy. No foreign force has ever so en dangered Ireland's liberty and honor aa this new pretender, unmitigated trick stei and unscrupulous enemy of liberty and democracy, who attacks Ireland's honor in its most vital part, and who betrayed the trust of honor committed to his care." The Labor World continuing, stays: "Parnell shouldn't be permitted to hold the power which he abused, and which would render Ireland's condition under her dictator worse than that of a South American republic." THE KILKENNY ELECTION. Hennessy \s Majority 1146—The Cam.ll ites Make Charges of Fraud. Kilkenny, Dec. 23.—The official result of the election yesterday to fill the va cauey in the house of commons, shows that Hennessy, the nominee of the anti Partlellites, is elected. Hennessy's ma jority is .146. There was little or no excitement here this morning. Messrs. Parnell, Har rington, Redmond, Scully, Hennessy and Healy were at the court house at an early hour, awaiting the announcement of the result. Immediately after the sheriff Officially announced the result of the polling, the Parnellites present moved in a body to the front of the court house, and then with a cheer, hoisted Parnell upon their shoulders. Parnell was upon the point of making a speech, when Timothy and Maurice Heaiy appeared. Trouble im mediately ensued. Finally Parnell, in order to prevent what seemed likely to be a disgraceful row, asked the police to induce the Healys to withdraw. The police promptly acted upon Parnell's suggestion, and the Healys were pre vailed upon to depart. Parnell resumed his speech, saying he .would not be turned aside from his determination to do his duty to Ireland, seeing that the result of the contest in North Kil kenny was brought about by a conspir acy. Paaftell added that he would go through Ireland righting every election, and felt confident of eventual" triumph. Scully will lodge a petition protesting against the election of Hennessy, on the ground of undue influence upon the part of priest?. Over 200 votes are challenged by the Parnellites. It is announced that Dr. Tanner is bringing suit against Parnell for slander contained in speeches made by the lat ter during the course of the late politi cal campaign. IRELAND'S VOICE. l'amell Charged with Disregarding It. He .Tourneys to Dublin. Dublin, Dec. 23. —Friendly demon strations were made at most of the places at which Parnell stopped on his journey from Kilkenny to this city. He made several brief addresses, in'which he declared that the fight was not an equal one, butUie fall of the first fence need not cause despair. At a meeting of the national commit tee today William Murphy said Parnell disregarded Ireland's voice, and it would be necessary to stop him in his mad career by every legitimate means. • The committee directed the starting of a daily morning newspaper, which will be edited by William O'Brien.

He confessed to" having re ceived 3000 francs Ifor expenses, but although his expenses were only 535 francs he could not account for the re mainder. The procureur contended that Labruyere's sole motive|was to advertise himself, and thereby earn money. Judg ment was deferred. DIED LIKE A MAN.

THE REAR GUARD SCANDAL AGAIN REVAMPED. Jameson's Diary Published by His Widow and Brother—Serious Charges Against the Great Explorer. London, Dec. 23. —Jameson's diary will be published tomorrow. In the preface Mrs. Jameson and the dead man'-s brother bitterly attack Stanley for making Jameson a scapegoat for all the troubles which they assert were due to Stanley's own bad judgment, and neglect. The diary is a record of the progress and adventures of the expedition, interspersed with disputes between Stanley and his followers, and liberally sprinkled with a record of Jameson's grievances against Stanley. In one place he says Stanley degraded three chiefs, the best natives Jameson had ever seen, and only released them on the intercession of Tipao Tib. Again he refers to a dis graceful row between Stanley, Jephson and Stairs, in reference to complaints of natives, whose word Stanley takes in preference to that of his own officers. Referring to the camp of the rear guard at Yambuya, Jameson says Stanley left them seventy-six of the very worst men under one worthless chief. The camp, he said, was pitched in a frightfully damp Dlace. He describes many thril ling adventures. EASTERN ECHOES. Quite a severe earthquake is reported In the vicinity of Knoxville, Term.
