A report has reached here from Roslyn,

men, who rode up to the door on horse

The third man then walked to the safe,

more men who had been stationed so as

Republicans Eloquently Told of the
Error of Their War,
Special to the llf.ualc.l
Pomona, Cal., Sept. 24.—C01. John P.
Irish addressed the largest audience
ever gathered together in the Armory
opera house tonight. Long before the
honr set fur the opening, every seat in
the large hall was taken, and when Col
onel Irish began his speech, standing
room was at a premium. His masterly
argument lasted two hours, md bo inter
esting nnd convincing was it that the
immense audience, consisting largely of
Republicans, all remained to the laßt,
and regretted that he did not speak
longer. His appeal to our people to vote
for an assemblyman who would vote for
Steve White for United States senator

dering hia personal thanks for the same.
The Senator Addresses a Vast Audi
ence at Buffalo and Is Warm
ly Received—Mr. Sheehan
Also Speaks.
I.'i ffalo, N. V., Sept. 24.—A vast
audience congregated in Music hall, to
night, to lieten to Senator Hill, Lieu-
tenant-Governor Sheehan and other
Democrats. Senator Hill was received
with tremendous applause. He said:
"I am here tonight in the promotion
of Democratic principles, and to advo
cate the election of Grover Cleveland
and Adlai Stevenson. No apology or
explanation is needed for my course.
Among honorable men the discharge
of political duty outweighs all minor
considerations, and in this crisis in our
country's history and the great emer
gency in our party affaire, individual
disappointments, or even alleged per
sonal injustice should be subordinated
to tie faithful performance of political
obligations. We all of us have a mis
sion now to fulfill. Petty jealousies
must be dismissed; regular organiza
tions respected; party discipline en
forced, and apathy give way to enthusi
asm. The control of this government,
for many years to come, by one or the
other of the great parties, is the prize at
stake in the pending contest, in which
all other considerations should sink into
Speaking of the tariff, the sena'or
"There can be no reasonable doubt
that tariff taxation will continue to be
the permanent policy of the government,
notwithstanding the opinions of sincere,
but impracticable theorists who advise
its abandonment. The dispute between
the two parties arises over the extent,
effect and objects of taxation. A con
clusive and Bufficient objection to the
protective taiiff, is that it is an abuse of
the taxing power; compels the whole
people to lay tribute to a few; it is a
system based upon injustice and unfair
discrimination, and tends to build up
monopolies. The Democratic position is
so plain and reasonable that he who
reads understands it. It believes the
true and constitutional purpose of the
tariff is the raising of the necessary re
venue for the support of the govern
ment, and that is all.
The Republicßns believe the question
of revenue Bhould be a minor considera
tion in the tariff, and the fostering of
some industries the primary one.
"I am willing to concede," said the
senator, "that the first or immediate
effect of a high tariff upon a new in
dustry, is usually to increase prices and
stimulate business; but this effect is
generally followed by undue competi
tion, occasioned by the very success in
cident to the favoritism shown ; then
over-production results ; then stagnation
in business ensues, and in the end there
comes a reduction of wages, a
fall in prices, and bankruptcy
to many industries. This is a
faithful picture of the evils of
protection, drawn from the business his
tory of this country for over 70 years. I
don't believe our' American manufac
tures require the protection the Repub
lican party seems so anxious to thrust
upon them. Especially if they were
provided with free raw materials", as the
Democratic party proposes to do. All
that America needs is a free field and a
fair fight in the race of life, and she
will prove it in nearly every department
of human activity."
The senator also devoted some time to
the discussion of the force bill.
Lieutenant-Governor Sheehan spoke
briefly, saying in part: "Democratic
tradition and Democratic manhood alike
demand prompt and hearty acquies
cence in the judgment of Democratic
conventions. Let ua work unselfishly
and intelligently for the election of
Grover Cleveland and Adlai Stevenson."
The Two Record Burners Admitted to
Bail at Albany.
Albany, N. V., Sept. 24.—Labor Com

as possible, but the matter was finally
postponed to Wednesday next. Each
gave $1000 bonds.

By tho Associated Press.l
Mason City, lowa, Sept. 24. —Seven
dead and three injured is the reßult of
an awful railroad wreck at New Hamp
ton tbie morning. A crew had been at
work on the main line of the Chicago &
Great Western road, replacing rails this
morning. About 10 o'clock the work
train pulled into New Hampton on the
maiu track, and stopped to do some
work. The through freight was due
there at 1:15 It was behind time and
running on orders not to stop at New
Hampton. The road enters New Hamp
ton from the north, but within sixty
rods makes a turn, going directly east.
This makes a bad curve in the road,
and a grove between the ends of the
curve shuts off all the view beyond. The
freight came around the curve at a speed
of 30 miles an hour, and crashed into
the cars o? the construction train. The
engineer and firemnn jumped just in
time to save their lives, for, a moment
later, the engine struck.
It is known positively that one more
man U under the engine, for part of his
body can be seen. The work of clearing
up the wreck is very slow. The bodies
removed from the wreckage are awfully
mangled. Some pieces of female wear
ing apparel have been taken out. It is
feared there may be a woman in the
Up to a late hour this evening only
one of the bodies has been identified,
that of M. McNamara, a trareling man
from Independence.
Later.—At midnight, four other bodies
have been identified—W. Beeman, Otto
Smith. George Brandoow and Frank
Kubbett, all of Elma, lowa. The in

The Homestead Strike Leader Not Al

Pittsbukg, Sept. 24.—Hugh O'Don
nell was refused bail this morning by
Judge Porter and will be compelled to
remain in jail until hia trial, O'Dounell
fully expected to be released on bail and
was astounded and dejected at the de
cision to hold him without bail. In hi 3
opinion, Judge* Porter held that the evi
dence was too direct. "All thia testi-
said he, ' is liable to be con
tradicted, explained or impeached on
the trial, but in this, as in all prelim
inary hearings, we must accept the tes
timony as true. It indicates that the
killing in question was done in a riot, by
a body of men who had a common un
derstanding or agreement that they
would resist all who opposed them,
even to the extent of taking life; that
defendant was a party to this combina
tion, and on the ground during the riot
and gave the rioters encouragement."

New York, Sept. 23. —Deputy Labor
Inspector Callan, of the state bureau, in
a report regarding work among the fac

tion to the sweating system by tenement
house tailors. One says the governor of
a neighboring state detailed two inspec
tors to examine into the system and
drive them out of the state. They found
that most of the houses were owned by
New York's "400," and that nearly the
entire output was shipped to John Wan

the passage of a law prohibiting sweat

The poeee had with them riflea,
shotgucs, a large quantity of ammuni

rangements with the greatest seoresy,
and were seen by but tew people. It is
probable that Thacker has obtained
some information leading him to believe
that the robbers have taken a northern
course, and that he intends to head
them off. No information could be ob

the posse's destination.
