A resolution to that effect waa present ed, but receiving opposition on the ground of being an imputation upon General Milea, in charge of tbe parade, tbe matter was laid on the table.

Eighteen lien Injured While Descending Into a Mine. Bessemer, Mich., Oct. 18.---Nineteen mjnere, employed in the Colvy mine, were descending ahaft No. 7, thia morn ing, in a cage, when the brakeman at tbe mouth of the tunnel noticed that tbe rope on tbe drum had nearly given out. He shouted to brakeman Ryan, in charge of tbe machine, to apply tbe brake. Instead of doing ao, Ryan threw it wide open. He stood for a moment dazed, then grabbed bis coat and hat and made for 'he woods where he is still wande ring. Only one of the 19 men es- j caped unharmed. The other 18 are in tbe hospital, every one Buffering from broken lega, anna and ehonlders. Four are helievrd to be fatally fiurt. It ia a miracle that the men were not all killed instantly. Liter advicna from the mine show that none of the men were fatally injured, and only one is thought to be injured in ternally. Two or three were hardly in jured at alt. BOWERS SOLD BOOZE. BET. *. B. COLLINS ON THB PRO HIBITION STOMP. A Santa Ana Republican Undertakes to Call Bim Down, and Gets Bat Upon — Oltn ffelborn Making Totes. Special to the Hebald. Santa Ana, Oct. 18.—J, H. Collins, of Loa Angelee, delivered a Prohibition speech here tonight , before a large audi ence. He was here some time ago, and | while here aaid that Hon. W. W. Bow- -ew*«**A> beets a liquor dealer in San Diego. 8. Hill, a Republican of thia town, denied the allegation, and in the National Record gave the lie to Collins. The Loa Angeles man went to San Diego, got affidavits proving hia asser tions and ehowing that Hill did not know what he waa talking about, read ing them tcnight. Hill got up and wanted to make a Republican speech, but got eat down on, aa hia word would not go against, the affidavits. The lie passed between the two men, and for a time it looked aa if there might be come fun. While the Republicana and Pro hibitionists are fighting, Welborn, the Democratic candidate for congress, is going bravely on making votes which will take him to congreaa next year. A FAIR OP ROBBKRS.

The Latest Thing in Campaign Literature. A Document That Rivals Benuie's For Verbosity. Tariff and Currency Made the Two Issues of the Campaign—Me Ha* Tory Little to Say About tha Force Bill. By the Associated Press. Nkw York, Oct. 18.—Following ia a synopsis of the letter of acceptance of Whit-law Reid, Republican candidate for vice president. The full letter makes 5500 words. It is addressed to Hon. W. T. Durbin, Anderson, Intl., and begins: When the nomination with which the national convention honored me was formall." announced by your committee, I accepted it at once. In doing so, I also accepted the principles set forth in the resolutions adopted by the conven tion as the basis of its appeal to popular suffrage. There will be no misunder standing as to tbe purposes of the Re publican party in the contest, and no doubt as to the attitude of its candidates. Party platforms are more important thia year than usual. The declarations of our opponents demand close scrutiny, aa their victory now would give tbem the first opportunity they have had since 1859 to put in practice their pol icy. It is obvious iv the common judgment of tbe people, that the really vital issues thia year are thoae relating to tariff and currency. Fortunately both aidea have Btated their positions on the subject*, with directness, simplicity and frank ness. The issues tbua made between the rival candidates are specially sharp and distinct. We maintain that the tariff ahould cover the difference in tbe coat of the home snd the foreign products, caueed by the difference in home and foreign wages. Our op ponents distinctly repudiate the propo sition that American wages ahould be considered in the matter, and have de clared instead, that a tariff levied for anything but revenue ia unconstitu tional. As the London Times naturally remarked, this policy ia not to be distinguished from free trade. Should the American people now choose the Republican candidates, the present tariff would staud; .or when amended, would only bo ao changed aa to Insure closer conformity to the principles on which it ia made. If our opponents are chosen, their congreas ia pledged to re repeal the preeent tariff and to tbe adoption of one arranged for revenue only; and .their executive ia pledged to the doctrine that a tariff having regtrd also for American wagea ia unconstitu tional. In the main the present tariff has worked well, developed American manu factures and increased American wages and promoted general prosperity. Our opponents deny all thia and denouu cc the Republican policy, which they say fosters no other industry ao much as that of tbe sheriff. We favor a system by which, when we think tbe country is ready for a re duction or abolition of duties, we insiet upon getting corresponding and recip rocal advantages from foreign countries. Our opponents denounce reciprocity aa a sham, and therefore inferentially pledge themselves to ita repeal. The constitutionality of the protective tariff waa heretofore thought to have been established. A tariff bill waa car ried through the first congreaa and was eigned by Washington. A third of a century later, Andrew Jackson main tained the constitutionality of tbe pro tective system, as bad Jefferson aud Mon roe, who each repeated l y recommended the exercise of this right under tbe con stitution. To this testimony, from the men who made the constitution, and from the father of the modern Demorcatic party, may be added that ■ ot the latent high authority of the Democratic party on constitutional law, Hon. George Ticknor Curtia, who recently said he could not eubacribe to the doctrine that the pro tective tariff was unconstitutional. The expediency of the protective tariff haa been vindicated by tbe experience of tbe laat 30 years—the most wonder ful period of financial succeaa over be fore unheard-of difficultiea, in tbe record of modern civilization. Under it and by its aid, tbe Republican management of our finances resulted in tbe largeat pay ment of tbe national debt, in tbe short est time, known to hietory, and in tbe simultaneous developments of the in dustries of the country and the prosper ity of the people on a scale without a parallel. Eight years ago in a mas terly public paper, James G. Blame called attention to the revelations of the United States census, aa to tbe net re sults of labor and savings of the American people under the Bystem of protection. The true value of all the property in the United States, excluding slaves, was set down in tbe census of 1800 at $14,000, --000,000, that being what there was to show for 250 years of toil. With the succeaa of the" Republican party that year, the Republican protective poiicy which has since prevailed waa intro duced. In the census of 18S0, the true value of the property in the United States was set down at $44,000,000,000, making an increase of over double the entire growth of the previous 250 years. It appears that tbe property of the United States has been still further in creased in the last ten years by $14,000, --000,000, making a total increase in 30 years of Republican rule, and under the Republican protective tariff of $44,000, --000 000, against $14 000,000,000 earned in the previous 250 years. Our opponents deny tbat there has been any increase of prosperity; declare that wages have been reduced, and de nounce our policy. It has been a fortu nate circumstance for the impartial pub lic, that in tbe regular couree of official duty a number of Democratic officers have eince been required to report ata PRICE FIVE CENTS. tißttca in eeveral departments bearing upon the Bubject. All theee reports tend to show an increase during the year 1891 in wages, in value of products, in deposits in eavinga banks, or building and loan associations, and in tbe value of real and personal property. These official Democra ie refutationa of the Democratic denial that the country is prosperous, are confirmed by the per sonal experience and observation of the people at latge. At tbe close of the fiscal year, the 30th of June laßt, the reciprocity policy had been in operation but a few months, and under all the disadvantages attend ing the opening of new lines of trade in foreign countries, it increased our trade with the foreign countries to which it bad been applied 23 78 per cent. Since then there has been a still greater in crease, amounting on September Ist to 27.08 percent. The net value of "sham" reciprocity therefore, to the United States in a brief period and during its infancy, was $22 569 284. To abandon this system, which is ab solutely equitable on both sides, which cost us nothing, and which brings such reeultß, would be madnesß, while to de nounce it as a sham is an untruth. On the subject of currency, the issue between the Republican party and their opponents ie almost as snarplv defined as on the tariff. We demand that every dollar—paper, Bilver or gold—shall be made and kept as good as any other dollar. Our opponents, while profess ing the came desire, demand that the national bank currency aball be broken down by the repeal of the 10 per cent tax on the issues of atate banks. No human being ever lost a dollar by a note of a national bank, solvent or otherwise. The loeaea by atate hanks are counted by tena of millions. It ia true tbat the gradual payment of government bonds may require some change in the securi ties demanded aa a guarantee for na tional batik notes. The party which de vised the system and made it a magnifi cent success may be relied npon to meet the emergency when it arises. There ia good reason to hope for some practical union of effort for a common Bolution of tbe Bilver problem, with an increaeed uae of silver, through the in ternational conference; but in any event tbe country haa learned to tilist the financial ekill and integrity of tbe Re publican party and to distrust ita oppon ents. It is a statement which no candid and confident business authority, whatever ita political tendency, can deny, that tbat the adoption now of the policy pursued by our opponents in their dec laration of principles, as to the repeal of the present tariff and the passage of a tariff for revenue only, and the subeti tution of the iasue of atate banks for na tional currency, would give an immediate and disastrous shock to business. But we are sometimes told they do not mean what they say. If so, cou d the people wieely entrust power to the party which does not mean to keep its promiees, and appeals for popular silt pott with an ad mitted lie on its lips? At other times we are toid that their candidate neither believe 3in the platform cor would dream of carrying ie out, and therefore there is no danger. We put no such as persion upon their candidate. It is im possible that any candidate in the con test can for an instant have intended to occupy a position so unworthy. Fur thermore, the duty of-carrying out a plain purpose decided by the over whelming majority in the highest Dem ocratic tribunal, would devolve, not up on the president, but upon the congress to be eiected by this party. The danger never before has been so great. Tbe Democratic party has threatened the peace and prosperity of the country, but within the memory of this generation, it has never had power to carry out ita purposea. It ia some times eaid that we predicted all manner of disastrous results when Cleveland was elected, but nothing happened, A good many regrettable things did happen, though the woret could not, because the hands of the party were ti din congress. But the present political situation makes it plain that a Democratic victory in tbe states which they must now carry in order to elect a pres dent, would aleo insure tbem enough new senators to reverse the pr. sent slender majority in the eenate. If they elect the preeident they will certainly have both tbe houee and eenate, and thus will be placed in absolute control for the first time since 1859 i with noth ing to prevent the carrying out ot the threats they have made against tbe prea ent tariff and currency. It ia as idle, therefore,aa it ia slanderous to say there is no danger from the triumph of our opponents, since the candidate will re fuse to carry out their principles. He could not with credit, and he could not anyway, because the power would not be witb him, but with cougreae. The attempt to change the issue from tariff and currency, and divert attention to the alleged force bill, scarcely calls for notice. The very title of the bill proclaims its object to all, to prevent the use of force at elections. It failed, anyway, and southern white men who were lately its chief and most interested opponents, now begin to wißh it would be revived to protect them from being themselves counted out of elections they fairly won, as they were the other day in Alabama, by their own white fellow Democrats. It is well, however, to say that the enunciation in the Democratic platform of principles, that the federal govern ment may supervise the election of fed eral officers, is a grotesque principle long reccguized and sustained by the courts. It now stands undisputed on the statute books, and was enforced at the recent elections by Grover Cleveland, then president. But, it is not to be dis guised that the recent clamor against the principle, if it meena anything, meana a purpose to nullify the eleventh and twelfth articles of the constitution. The administration of President Har rieon ia generally recognized aa honeet, able and safe. Considering the number of important eubjects, both foreign and domestic, it has been compelled to deal with, and tbe satisfaction that attended the results, it may, indeed, oe pro nounced brilliantly successful. I believe your declaration of principles and your renomination of the president, a spot lese and eucceeeful president, will com mand popular approval at the polls, and will, under God, inure to the continued , benefit of our country.
