Senator Hill's Status in the Present Campaign. He Defines His Position in No Uncertain Words. To Support the Chicago Nominees Is the Duty of the flour. From the Public Rostrum He Urges All True Democrats to Work and Vote for Cleveland and Stevenaon. By the Associated Press. 1 New York, Sept. 19.—There was a great outpouring of Democrats in Brook lyn tonight. The Academy of Mu-ic could hardly accomodate the crowd that tried to get in. The principal speaker of the night was Senator David B. 'Hill, who was greeted with tremendous ap plause. His speech was listened to attentively and broken by frequent bursts of cheering. Interest toward the close of the address was great,, ihe speaker not having once mentioned the name of Cleveland, referring in each instance to the ex-president as "he." When after one grand phrase of deepest meaning, he closed with the Words "Cleveland and Stevenson," the audi ence rose en masse and cheered him to the echo, recognizing the ingenious climax to his address. senator hili/b- SPEECH. The senator said in part: "I am re minded of the fact that it was in this edifice, in 1886, that I had the honor of expressing tbe sentiment, 'I am a Dem ocrat,' and under the existing political situation, I know of no more appropri ate place or presence than here to de clare that I was a Democrat before the Chicago convention and I am a Demo crat still. The national Democratic convention has passed into history. It was the court of last resort, and its de cision will be accepted with loyal acqui escence by every true and patriotic Dem ocrat who recognizes the necessity of patty organization and discipline. From this time forward imperative duties are imposed upon us. Factional appeals should now cease; the spirit of resent ment be abandoned; state pride be sub ordinated to the general good; real or fancied grievances be dismissed; per sonal ambitions be sacrificed, and indi vidual disappointments forgotten. TUB DUTY OF THE HOUR. "In the great emergency which de mands fiom us all an exhibition of wide spread and lofty patriotism, permit me to ifppeat What I bad th« honor ol ex pressing to the Tammany/ Eociety the 4th of July last, before tbe echoes of our national convention had died away: 'Our course at the present time is plain. In the approaching struggle the Democ racy of New York should present a solid front to the common enemy. Loyalty to the cardinal Democratic principles and the regularly nominated candidates, is the supremo duty of the hour.' I re iterate these sentiments now." THE TARIFF QUESTION. Senator Hill reviewed the history of the two parties and said: 'The Republi can party advocates the doctrine that the government has a constitutional as well as a moral tight to impose tariff du ties for the purpose of encouraging the building up of private industries by the imposition of duties sufficiently large to prevent foreign competition irrespective of the needs of the treaeury, while the Democratic party believes that the gov ernment has only a right to impose du ties necessary to raise sufficient revenue to support the government economically administered. This is the precise is sue, squarely stated. The Democratic national platform gives forth no uncer tain sound upon this subject, and cor rectly states the true position of the party. We always insisted that there waß no warrant in the constitution for the imposition of tariff du ties to aid private industries, but, whether such a tariff is constitu tional or not, or whether it is practica ble to have the question properly raised and decided, tbe system itself is vicious in tbe extreme, unjust to the people, and contrary to the spirit of our free in stitutions. Republican protection is imposed upon the people by fraud, false pretense, and gross abuse of the taxing power; and, with a careful examination of the matter, fair-minded men will ar rive at the conclusion that the Demo cratic party was right when it declared: 'Taxation for private purposes is uncon stitutional.' In so far as a tariff is ne cessary to meet the necessities of the government, it may be imposed, and any other benefit which may be legiti mately derived from its imposition may, and does, necessarily, accompany it. If the burdens imposed would operate to prevent foreign competition, the benefit is indirect and unobjectionable. THE DEMOCRATIC POSITION. "President Harrison, in bis ingenious letter of acceptance, endeavors to place our party in a false attitude, by calling attention to the fact that while oar platform of '84, readopted in '88, con tained an express plank upon the ques tion of the equalization of wages, yet it was omitted in '92, and aeserts that we have changed our position. There has been no change. It is not always prac ticable to place in a platform the details of proposed legislation. The platforms of '84 and '88 were elaborate and lengthy, and it was desirable to simplify them. General principles were stated in '92, rather than particulars, as in '84. There <a no conflict between them. There is no necessity for the repetition of that plank, as the party's position is evidenced by the Mills bill. We stand not only upon tbe platform of '92, but upon the Mills bill, which was the latest general Democratic legislation upon the tariff. That bill was as good an exposition of our principles as any elaborate platform could possibly be. If I were asked to define as closely as pos sible the whole Democratic policy, I should state it substantially as follows: We favor a tariff for revenue only, lim ited to the necessitiesof the government economically administered, and so ad justed in its application, as far as pract icable, to prevent unequal burdens, to encourage productive industries at home, and to afford just compensation to labor, but not to create or foster monopolies. NOT FOR FREE TRADE. "President Harrison and all other great and small advocates of the vicious protective system diligently seek to cre ate tbe impression that the Democratic party has assumed a bolder attitude than formerly, and become the advocate of absolute free trade. I said, in the campaign of '88, if I believed the Dun ocratic party favored absolute free trade, I would not advocate its cause, and I re peat the statement here tonight. I in- Hist that neither the Democratic party nor I have changed our position upon this question, but stand where we have ever stood. Tariff reform does not mean free trade. Our opponents misrepresent ' ur position now as they have ever done since the famous tariff measure of '87. ' THE M'KINI.KY TARIFF. Speaking of the McKinley bill, Sena tor Hill said: "It is undoubtedly true that in this state the aggregate amount of all the wages paid tbe year after its passage may have been greater than the year preceding, but that does not prove any increase in the rate of wages paid, and only shows that some new indus tries have been established, or addi tional men employed in others, and it does not appear tbat such increase is more than the usual natural increase occasioned by the steady growth of the state. It may possibly also be true tbat there have been a few less strikes dur ing the past two years, but this mar be attributed to the moderation and good judgment of our labor organizations, rather than to the effect of any tariff law. I know this much: The Demo cratic party is entirely content to per mit every workhagman whose wages have been increased since the passage of the McKinley bill, to vote the Repub lican ticket, if our opponents consent that all whose wsges have not been in creased shall vote the Democratic ticket, and upon tbat basis we will carry the country by a million majority." TUB INFAMOUS FORCE BILL. Senator Hill devoted some little time j to the force bill, saying H was conceived in political animosity, urged from the narrowest and worst of motives, and un worthy a place among the statutes of the American republic. "The Demo cratic party," said he, "desires free, honest, and fair elections everywhere. It desires them not merely Decause they would inure to its benefit, but upon the unselfish and high ground tbat tbey are essential to the preservation of our free institutions. The Democratic party has suffered much in the past from the cor rupt and tyrannical election methods of its adversaries." The senator concluded with an earnest admonition to Demo crats to organize in the most thorough manner; buckle on their armor and fight "for the triumph of our party, and the election of our honored standard bearers, Cleveland and Stevenson." Congressman Breckinridge aud others also spoke. / ' JCVANS AND SON TAG. The Bandits Driven from Sampson Flat, But Not Captured. Fresno, Cal., Sept. 19.—Constable J. G. Ashman, one of Sheriff Hensley's posse, returned from Sampson flat yesterday. The most important infor mation he brings is that Evans and Son tag have left the Sampson flat country and have gone to Eshem valley, about 15 miles to tbe northeast. Eshem val ley is a rougher locality than the flat, and still more sparsely settled. Evans used to have a ranch there, and knows the country thoroughly. Sheriff Hensley and other officers left for Eshem valley yesterday. About twenty-five officers are in the mountains now, and the trails are being thoroughly guarded. If the robbers attempt to re turn to Sampson flat, they will be either captured or killed. There is a likeli hood that an effort will be made to drive the robbers to a locality where they have no friends, and can get no provi sions or ammunition. Ashman says there is no truth in the rumor that Woody was killed by the robbers. It is also untrue that Hensley found a sack of Sontag's ammunition in a cornfield at Young's house. There is much difference of opinion among the officers as to the blood found on the corn stalks, some lay it is Evans', others Sontag's; others still believe it is the blood of neither. Clark Moore who is suspectei of hav ing given the robbers information of the movements of tbe officers, was sent to Dunlap, where he was ordered to remain by Sheriff Hensley until further orders. Visalia, Cal., Sept. 19. —One posse in pursuit of Evans and Sontag was heard of today. They claim to have run the desperadoes out of Sampson flat and to Pine ridge. It is thought Evans and Sontag are making for Redwood cafion, an almost impenetrable gorge. Clark Moore, tbe mining partner of Evans, who is under arrest, will prob ably not be taken to Fresno yet and given a chance to get out a'writ of habeas corpus, as he can be better used in the hills with the posse. Sheriff Kay and posse arrived at Sequoia mills last night, and Btarted on tbe trail this morning. A man just from the mountains Bays a change of sentiment regarding the out laws has taken place since the killing of Wilson and McGinnis, and a number of men who would have befriended them before, now cay they will do what they can to deliver them to the officers. THE SE.IRXBS-HOFKIKS WILL. Another Stlrrlng-iip of the Celebrated Case ln Prospect. Boston, Bept. 19.—Another stirring up of the Searles-Hopkins will case is promised. Lowell Mason Maxham has sued Edward F. Searles for $2657, for services in looking after witnesses in the will case, "and particularly one George Williams, otherwise George Wilson, otherwise called Dearborn." It is said tbe work Maxham undertook to do waß to keep Williams away from Massa chusetts during tbe hearing of the pro bate of the will.

Largest Gathering of Old Soldiers Since the War. Dedication or Grand Army Place by Vice-President Morton—A Parade of United Statea Boldlers and Sailors. By the Associated Press.] . Washington, Sept. 19. —Twenty-six years ago the loyal organization known as the Grand Army of the Republic was formed with B. F. Stevenson, of Illinois, as the first commander. Since then re-unions of the men who fought to pre serve the union have been held, but never did the veterans meet in this city since tbe close of tbe war of the rebel lion till today. For days grizzled com rades have been gathering from every partof the union, until the attendance surpasses anything ever before seen in Washington. All the hotels, tented camps, school bouses and a large nam of private residences are thrown open to them, and are crowded with the men who defended the capital against inva sion in the dark days of fraternal strife. Every available resource has been drawn upon, and in spite of the vast throng, everybody is cared for, sheltered and fed. Yesterday, as tbe hours of night wore on, the bustle and stir which character ized the day and evening subsided, and the statement, "All quiet on the Poto mac," became as true as in the days when tome of these same patriotic men slept on their arms in the open air upon tbe banks of the historic river. Today broke pleasant, and as the sun came out with the genial warmth of early autumn or of belated summer, it was just tbe day for going about and en joying life out of doors. The camps were astir early, and ablutions and breakfast attended to, the visitors were ready to enjoy the day. The decorations of the city are elabo rate and tasteful throughout, but along tbe historical Pennsylvania avenue, from the capitol building to Twenty second street, along which tbe Union army marched with service-worn uni forms and battle scarred flags at the close of the war, they are particularly brilliant. The public buildings have re ceived special care in this regard, and the White House and treasury depart ment are conspicuously beatifnl end elaborate. Tbe feature of the day was the inaug uration and dedication "of Grand Army place, as it is called. It is a magnifi cent stretch of green sward, lying just south of the White House grounds. On this, by arrangement, tents and stands have been laid out so as to form a repro duction of the closing campaign of the war, with Richmond in the "center, sur rounded by groups of tents representing the various army corps whicb assisted to wind up the war. A prominent feature in the grounds is a model of the old war vessel Kearsarge. some portions of it, snch as the post, port holes and dead latch, being from the old vessel itself. The dedication of Grand Army place was preceded by a parade of the mem bers of the regular army and navy, and was of special interest to tbe veterans, affording an opportunity to contrast the arms and accoutrements now in use, with those carried during the late war. The procession consisted of five brigades, including a troop of the regular army, naval batteries and ma rines, district national guards, posts of the department of the Potomac, G.A.R. and Sons of Veterans. The procession marched from Second street up Penn sylvania avenue to the treasury build ing, where it waß reviewed by Vice- President Morton, thence to Grand Army place. After tbe parade, Vice-President Mor ton was escorted to Grand Army place, where he received a salute from the guns of the Kearsarge, and took his place on the stand beside Commander-in-chief Palmer. Prayer waa offered by Chaplain-in- Cbief Payne of Florida. Then General Palmer delivered' the introductory ad dress. He dwelt on the glorious record of the Union armies, referred feelingly to the absence of the beloved dead command ers, spoke regretfully of the enforced absence of President Harrison, paying a tribute to him as a soldier and presi dent, and introduced Vice-president Morton, having first read the presi dent's telegram of regret at his absence, a copy of which follows: Loon Lake, N. V., Sept. 19. Gen. John Palmer,Commander-in Chief G.A.R : I had looked forward with great pleas ure to the great rehearsal in Washing ton, next Tuesday, of tbe victors' march of 1865. _ I would have esteemed it one of the highest honors of my public life to have welcomed to the national capi tal, and to have received in its historic avenue, this representative assembly of the .men who net only saved the "city from threatened destruction, but made it the worthy political capital of the un broken union. It would also have been one of the most favored and tender inci dents of my private life to have taken these comrades again by the hand. But all this haß been denied me by the inter vention of a sad, imperative duty, and I can only ask you to give to all my cor dial greetings and good wishes. Accept my sincere thanks for your very kind and sympathetic message. (Signed) Benjamin Habrison. Vive-President Morton then delivered the formal dedication address. He be gan by referring in sympathetic terms to the domestic reasons which caused the absence of President Harrison, and prayed God to give bim grace in his need. He also had "lately been stand ing at the gates of the nation to chal lenge the entrance of an implacable enemy that must be confronted at our ports." , Turning to the matter directly in hand, the speaker continued: "I see PRICE FIVE CENTS. before me the survivors of a generation of rrsen who have emblazoned the pages of the history of freedom for ail time to come; who have set an example for re publican France, for united Germany, for reconstructed Italy; and who have broadened and deepened the founda tions of the English constitution and of Anglo-Saxon liberty. Of this great army of liberty, whether for thun who have passed away, or those who are still present for duty, you are the honored representatives. "The president would speak to you «a a comrade. . It is for me to greet you in behalf of the business interests affecting the welfare of the whole people; in be half of trade and commerce of the hus bandman aud the artisan ; the employer and employed ; in behalf of all men and women, from every section,who love the union. I bid you welcome in behalf of the president and bis cabinet advisers; in behalf of the congress of the United States aud the national judiciary, admin istering collectively the government you have secured; and in behalf of a whole people made illustrious by your hero ism, and that of your adversaries, now your friends. I greet you in behalf of the stalwart north, of the loyal south, of the sun-illumined east, and the com manding west; under the Bhadowa of the capitol you have preserved in this beautiful city, founded by Washington, made sacred by tbe services and sacri fices of Lincoln, and in full view of Vir ginia, the birthplace of presidents, and the burial place of hero-is. "In the order of time this may or may not be your last grand review, but I ex press the hope of a grateful people that heaven will bounteously lengthen your liveß before you are called to the other shore to rejoin the ranks of your com panions. "And now, my countrymen, in behalf of the whole American people, I dedi cate this Grand Army place, and com memorate the memorials which, it is be lieved, will be hereafter erected upon it to the everlasting glories of the Grand Army of the Republic. God bless you all, and those who today unite with you in strengthening the union of the great republic!" After Mr. Morton's eddress, there were very brief informal speeches by Secretary Noble, Attorney-General Mil ler, Acting Secretary of War Grant, General Schofield, and Gen. J. W. Kiefer. The fight for the honor of entertain ing the G. A. R. a year hence, has be gan. Indianapolis is the first in tbe field, and is pushing its case vigorously, but Lincoln, Neb., has begun to urge its claims. Thus far these are the only cities suggested for the encampment. Four active candidates are in the field for successor to Commander in Chief Palmer. They are Col. R. H. Wartield, of California; Col. Charles P. Lincoln, of tbedepartmentof the Potomac; Capt. A. G. Weiezer, of Wisconeiu, and Brig. Gen. S. H. Hearst, of Ohio. ' At the meeting of the national council of administration tonight, Commander in-Chief Palmer presided, and the only business transacted waa the auditing of the accounts (>f the adjutant-general, the qiiarternißflter-senera!, and other officers of the G, A. R., preparatory to their submission to the-national encampment Wednesday. A pleasant incident of the reunion to night was the presentation to Command er-in-Chief Palmer, by the ladies, of a beautiful Grand Army badge. The badge is encrußted with diamonds and other beautiful gems, and is said to have cost $1000. Five police officers were badly burned today by powder from a cannon used in firing a salute in Grand Army place. David Shildollar, of Spiceville, Ohio; C. V. Millet, of this city; J. A. Bradley, of Illinois, and Miss Mary Liggett, of Ohio, were also burned. The principal event, socially, to the visiting etrar.gerß this evening, waß a reception in the rotunda of the Capitol. It lasted for three hours, from 8.30 to 11:80 o'clock, and was attended by thousands. Arrangements for handling such a crowd as appeared had not been made, and consequently there was much jostling, and many persons hart to leave the building without getting even a glimpse of the ladies who were acting aa hostesses. Among the latter was Mrs. General Logan. Among the gentlemen present were Vice-President Morton, Secretary Tracy, ex-I'resident Hayes, Generals Palmer and Alger. A large and distinguished audience listened for over three hours this even ing, at the Congregational church, to soul-stirring addresses, patriotic music and national anthems, in honor of the memory of General Philip H Sheridan, under the auspices of Phil Sheridan Post No. 14, department of the Potomac, G. A. R. _ MRS. HlR«I80K'!j WISH. She Will Be Taken to Wa«hincton iv Accordance Therewith. Loon Lake, N. V., Sept. 19.—Mrs. Harrison's physicians this morning de cided to comply with her request to be taken to Washington. She starts to morrow if she continues to improve. This afternoon it was decided that the party would leave here tomorrow noon, and they expect to reach Washington Wednesday morning. Dr. Gardner said Mrs. Harrison is much improved, and there has been no reproduction of fluid in her chest cavity to any extent. Secretary of State Foster arrived thia morning and had a long conference with the president about foreign affairs. Cattle Furnishing In Arizona. Phcsnix, Ariz., Sept. 19. — Several heavy cattle owners from North and East Arizona arrived today looking for pasture for their famishing cattle. Water is gone and feed ia uhort. The outside pastures here are almost full. Seventy-five thousand cattle are already in the Salt river vallov, selling at $13 to $14, with few buyers. If it does not rein soon, the range will be depopulated. A Munchausen. Story. Chicago, Sept. 19.—With reference to the story from Detroit about a projected transcontinental air-line railroad, men here smile and think it a scheme worthy of Munchausen. The city directory does not contain the name of William Diilon. An Editor Shot from Ambush. Somerset, Ky., Sept. 19 —Joseph B. Rucker, editor and proprietor of the Re porter, was shot and probably fatally injured tonight by an unknown assas sin, while on his way to hia office. Posses are out, and if the assassin ia 1 caught, nothing can prevent lynching.
