Mickidian, Miss., Maroh 15.—Several
thousand people were assembled at the
depot this morning when the train
bearing Senator Hill and party rolled
into the city. A salute of musketry
from the Mississippi southrons an
nounced hia arrival. Senator Hill was
introduced by Capt. W. li. Hnrdy,
chairman of the citizens' committee, as
"the great Democratic leader, who never
leads but to victory, and who never won
a victory but for the good of the
Senator lILII spoke briefly aud forcibly
on national political issues and was
loudly cheered. He denounced the
force bill and the billion dollar congress,
and said the people would pronounce
against the Republican party in the com
ing election.
Jackson, Miss., March 15. —Senator
Hill was met at Meridian by a commit
tee representing the state capitol aud
conducted to Jackson, where an im
mense crowd was assembled. Governor
Stone met the senator at the depot and
welcomed him to the state amid cheers.
Senator Hill became the guest of
Governor Stone during his stay in
Jackson, and a public reception was
held at the executive mansion at noon.
The legislature met in joint session
this afternoon and Senator Hill waß in
troduced by Governor Stone. Hill
introduced his speech by saying tbat
from the vaßt crowd present, Mr. Reed,
ex-speaker of the national house of
representatives, would have nodi dimity
in counting a quorum of the legislature.
After expressing thanks for tbe recep
tion he had been granted. Hill spoke of
the advantage to be gained by the inter
change of thought, not only between
citizens of different countries, but be
tween citizens of different parts of the
same country.
"The Democrats of New York," said
Hill, "btand upon the whole Democratic
faith and tradition, and have expressed
a desire to see the Democrats of Missis
sippi and tbe whole country unite with
the New York Democrats; and if the
farmers' Alliance unite also with them
in the approaching contest, then a
victory will be gained, which will close
a chapter of history; will doom to final
disintegration a degraded party, and
will fix the direction of our political
progress for some decades in the century
to come.
''Democratic principles have created
tbe Democratic party, which in its
union has greater strength than ail ita
enemies combined can ever finally sub
vert. [Applause.] It survives every
disaster; is the great and moat efficient
organ of the people's power; is stronger
than any man or set of men; no man ie
ever indispensable to its success. [Pro
longed applause.] It ia greater and
more powerful than any class, however
numerous; therefore it is large, tolerant,
liberal, progressive, and invites to its
membership and its control all who will
uphold Democratic faith and tradition
and apply them to the people's needs.
"Shall we commit the future of our
great republic to the supreme guidance
of the Democratic faith and tradition?
"There are new. lights, plenty of them.
' There are cracked, discarded lanterns
furbished up to look aB new, plenty of
them. There is a young empero* who
says: 'I rule this atate, nobody elae; fol
low me,' There is a little island where
many say : 'The atate is a first rate con
trivance for doing anything we like
with it. Let us get hold of it and do
what we think good for everybody.'
There is a vast empire where many
starve and all Bay: 'Let us call upon the
titled father, the white czar.' There
is a great republic over the
water, where all say: "We must
light one day; let us give all our
young men to the army and be ready.'
But I doubt if there is anything better
anywhere than the old Democratic faith
and tradition, which finds it legitimate
to consolidate and employ the whole
physical and moral power of the social
aggregate, first, to resist, foreign aggres
sion; next and chiefly, prevent and
puniah individual aggression, in order
so to establish and maintain justice that
all shall be equally and forever free to
pursue happiness aB he will."
Senator Hill then spoke of the social
adaptations of men, which he said must
vary with their location on- the earth's
surface. Were Rhode Maud situated
in Mongolia, her present constitution
would not do at all. The constitution of
the United States would not fit the new
republic in the island of Madagascar,
To pleaae the Pacific coast, we have
made laws restricting Chinese immigra
tion. The only alteration thus far made
in our governmental structure, was
caused by the south in her propinquity
with Africans, whose type of civilization
awaits historic record. '
The senator then spoke of the endur
ance of the government of the United
States, citing Gladstone's remark that
our constitution ia among [he most
wonderful works of civilized man, and
the group of stateamen who framed it,
unmatched in any other group in human
Continuing, the senator aaid: "The
late Republican congress tried to put
manacles on aouthern limbs. Tire Dem
ocratic party answered: ' Shall north
ern limba then wear the aame, or are we
all freemen now?' Never beneath thia
canopy of our surviving constitution of
an indestructible union of indestructi
ble states, a conatitution color-blind,
and equal laws, will the Democracy of
the great north and a greater west con
found and confuse your present social
problem with put and gone political
problems. It shocks historic sense to
witness the recent forging ot the force
bill chains."
The actions of the Republicans in the
last congress next received his atten
tion. "When the-Republicans had con
trol of both branches of congress a
the executive department," said h
"did they better the condition of the
country? Did tney repeal one of the
unconstitutional laws for which they
have been pleading the false excuse of
war; its burdens, its necessities? Let
our worse than war tariff reply; let the
disorders of our currency answer. They
first cheated more power into their own
hands, then doubled its prostitu
tion. Their speaker of the house, by
violent unparliamentary procedures dis
tended an actually small, to a fraudu
lently large majority, all of whom fol
lowed him with dog-like docility.
[Laughter.| In the Benate six new Re
publican senators were seated to repre
sent a smaller population than the
Republican census left uncounted in the
city of New York, and one state was de
frauded of its Democratic choice. Their
object was not only to enact more and
worse unconstitutional legislation, but
alao to put that legislation beyond the
people's amendment or repeal."
After a violent attack on the McKin
ley law, he charged that Sherman's sil
ver law is draining off our gold to turn
into a steady stream and drive us head
long into an exclusive silver bneis.
Unity in the ranks again received at
tention, Hill urging the members of tire
party to stand linn by the faiths aud
traditions of the party, saying: "Unity
will enable the party to force relief from
unjust tariff; unity will enable it call a
halt in the growth and speed of grind 7
ing monopolies; will enable it to restorf
sound, 6afe and sufficient money of ou.
fathers, when every dollar was jußt
good as a gold dollar. [Loud
cheers.] To separate and split
now is madness. Ooce more to the
breach. The people's victory requires
but union. Division is defeat. Division,
even in Mississippi, iB nothing else but
a vote to prolong Republican domina
tion, and renew that party's life. The
defeat of the Republican party next
November means its death. It will dis
integrate, dissolve and perish. The
reign of autocrats and plutocrats will be
over and gone. The conspiracy of the
Republican revolutionists of the billion
dollar congress to wreck this gieat ex
periment of democratic justice and lib
erty will be crushed. Wo shall awake
from this long darkness and its foul
dreams to sunrise, morning aud a new

the capitol at the conclusion of the

It is true the legis'ature was in ses
sion and Mr. Henry v aa not a member
of either branch, but in the wild en
thusiasm that followed tbe reading of
the resolutions this little parliamentary
discrepancy was forgotten. One wild,
affirmative yell greeted the resolutions,

principles of tbe Democracy about as in
his former speeches, and once more
counselled the party to unity. His re
marks were received with enthusiasm
and at the conclusion a brief reception
was held at tbe mansion.

endeavoring to inaugurate a reign of
terror in this city.
About 2 o'clock this morning a terrific
explosion occurred at the Lobau bar
racks, occupied by the Republican
guard, adjoining the hotel Do
ville. In a moment the wild
est excitement prevailed, men
sprang for the doors and windows,

down upon them. The streets in the
vicinity were soon filled with an ex
cited crowd. It was found that a dyna
mite cartridge had been placed upon the
ledge of a window of the mess room.
The guards escaped without injury and

courage from their immunity from ar
rest, for the police have not succeeded
in detecting the authors of any of the
recent explosions, and serious apprehen

may take on. May day. The police are
working in the dark, and the tracks of
tbe authors of these outrages are co well

The Safe Blown Open with Giant Powder
—Important Papers Secured—An Al
leged Conspiracy to Murder Judge
Terry—Sensational Disclosures.
Fresno, March 15.—A muffled explo
sion, proceeding from the house of Mrs.
Sarah Althea Terry, last Sunday night,
startled the people living in the neigh
borhood. Sam P. Davis, a newspaper
man, and Mrs. Whitney, acting under
authority of a power oi attorney given
tbem by R. Porter Ashe, administrator
of Mrs. Terry's estate, were ransacking
the house. The outer door of a small
steel safe in the back parlor,
where Judge Terry kept his law
books, bad been blown open with
a cartridge of giant pqwder, and the
inside forced open with a jimmy. The
object of the search was to obtain pos
session of Mrs. Terry's valuables and
important papers bearing upon tbe
Sharon case, and an alleged conspiracy
10 murder Judge Terry.
One of these letters was seen by your
correspondent. One writer says he was
formerly sheriff of one of the California
counties. Two months before Terry was
killed he was offered $25,000, by certain
parties whose names he could "not then
reveal, to kill Judge Terry. He was
assured immunity from "law. The
writer rejected the proposition, and was
himself warned if he disclosed the offer
he would be murdered. He was also
advisod to leave the state at once on
pain ofaseassination.
In the same letter to him was en
closed $500 in United States bills. The
writer left the state and went to Du
buque, lowa, from where the letter is
dated. The writer requests Mrs. Terry
to come to Dubuque and visit him,
promising to put her in
possession of all the facts and
proofs of the conspiracy. He declined
to give his name, but suggested that on
arrival she put the following advertise
ment in a certain Dubuque paper:
"Ed: lam coming home. Lucy."
The other letters found in the cafe are

she requested him to cease. He
continued to "force himself into her
presence whenever possible. She told
her husband, who expostulated, and
Robinson said ho would leave the coun
try. He did so, but continued to write.
Receiving no replies to his letters he
