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
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.
"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."
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.
"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.
"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. '
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."
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. / '
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.
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. Maxham worked with
Searles in the upholstery business 25
years, and their acquaintance has been
kept up since.

The City Crowded With the

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
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
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
Prayer waa offered by Chaplain-in-
Cbief Payne of Florida. Then General

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
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

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.

of the G, A. R., preparatory to their
submission to the-national encampment
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.
