Chicago, Oct. 22.—The largest Repub
lican meeting of the campaign in this
city was held tonight in Central Music
hall, and was attended by over 2000 of
the leading Republicans of Chicago pnd
the state of Illinois. Many hundreds
were turned away. The meeting was
held under the auspices of the Repub
lican bankers and merchants of the city.
The chairman of tbe evening was Henry
W. King, and hia brief speech accepting
the gavel was the keynote of the eve
ning. He said tbe business men of the
west had been struck with dismay at
the financial plank of the laat Demo
cratic platforo), which by demanding;
the repeal of the 10 per cent federal tax
on state bank issues, proposed a return
to the wild-cat and red-dog currency o!
30 years ago, that wrecked the finances
of the nation.
King introduced Senator John Sher
man, who spoke at great length on the
questions of national currency, silver,
tariff and reciprocity. He said in part
that tbe national bank system had been
so successful that no man lives who ever
lost a single dollar by a national bank
"They tell üb," said Bherman, "that
they want more money. Suppose the
government of the United States should
issue $100 000 000 worth of notes. Who
would they pay those notes to I How
can any of you get any of tbat mone
unless you do something or sell some
thing to the government? unless you do
some work or perform some labor? The
poor roan wbo needs more money would
not get his share; bnt the people who
hold government bonds, government
contractors, etc., would get an increased
value. In former times the greatest cir
culation of bank notes at one time was
about $200,000,000 or $300 000 000, and
yet today there is $1,132,000,000 of paper
money in active circulation. One would
think that was enough. It is more than
ever existed before in the history of the
country, and when we remember t* at
95 per cent, and in the city of Chicago
97 per cent of all payments are made
in checks and other commercial
paper, it shows tbat that money is only
used in an ordinary way by the people
for marketing and the smaller transac
tions of life. Let banks break; who
cares ? The money is good because se
curity is in the handsof tbe government.
Every dollar of this money is safe. And
no./ this Democratic party, which for
30 years has done nothing but oppose
the action of the Republican party,
comes in and demands the restoration
of bad money. That is the condi
tion before us. Mr. Springer, of
Illinois, says the reason they
put this little plank in the
Democratic platform was because
some of their brethren in the south
wanted a chance to issue paper money
of their own. In other words, the de
mand is made, and the Democratic party
knuckles down at once and cries: 'Yes,
yes.' Mr. Springer does not exactly
believe in wild-cat money himself. He
does not see how it will circulate, un
less supported in some way. He would
make some provision in congress, but
congress has no power to change the
la*s of a state. Mr. Springer further
said it is sometimes said we must pro
vide other forms of banking, because
tbe national banks will go out of exist
ence some time. That may be. As the
national debt is paid off, aB no bank can
hn organized except upon a deposit of
United States bonds, some other form of
security may be devised, but it is difficult
now to pass upon that question. I don't
think the people of tbe United States
will ever consent to accept any security
from any form of hank, except the secu
rity which is the highest in land—the
security of 65,000 000 of the freest peo
ple God ever made." [Great applause. J
Tbe senator also referred to the silver
question, saying: "Four thousand mil
lion dollars worth of silver is now in
sight, and $185,000,000 more per year is
being produced, and yet the wild, crazy
proposition is made that the United
States shall enter the market and
pay $1 for every 67 cents' worth of silver
that may be imported or thrown into
the country. The inevitable effect will
be at. once to demonetize gold, and re
duce us to a single silver standard."
Nothing proposed struck him so hard
and severe as this most infernal proposi
tion to open our doors to the free pur
chase of silver. "The silver miners have
no right to demand of us or attempt to
force the government to purchase their
article at a price in advance of what it
is worth in the open market."
The senator said if tbe international
monetary conference fails to find a solu
tion of the vexed question, the business
men will have either to stand upon a
silver standard and banish our gold to
foreign lands, or put enough silver in
the silver dollar to make it equal in
value to the gold dollar.
The senator also spoke at some length
on .the tariff and reciprocity questions.
Postmaster-General Wanamaker and
Secretary Noble also spoke briefly. It
was after midnight when the meeting

Republicans Hake a Demonstration at
Stevenson's Home*
Bloomington, 111 , Oct. 22.—The rally
of the Republicans wae finished tonight
with the largest torchlight procession
ever seen in this city. A dozen special
trains augmented the already immense
crowd in the city, and when the proces
sion moved, it is estimated that 30,000
people congregated about the court
house square to review it. Governor

and was met by a large escort. He rode
in tbe parade in a closed carriage, and
at the conclusion of the march, made a
few remarks on the issues of the cam
paign. The celebration closed, and the
managers expressed themselves satisfied
with the result.

San Diego, Oct. 22.—Indian Joe, now
in cuatody upon the charge of the mur
der of Mr. and Mra. Geiaer, at Otay, laat
Sunday evening, waa taken today to
that place from thia city for hia prelimi
nary examination, in company with two
other Indians, charged with being ac
cessories to the crime. The murderer
barely escaped lynching at the hands of
the neighbors of the murdered couple,
who had a rope all ready for the pur
pose. The officers at length prevailed
on the mob to allow the law to take its
course, assuring them that the evidence
was of such a nature that a conviction
would surely follow.
The murderer is suffering from the
beating he received at the hands of
Freddy Riper, a 15-year-old boy, who
helped hia aged father to secure the
fiend at the time the murder waa com
mitted, and his death from the effects of

probable. There are nearly 30 severe
bruises upon hia head, which ia swollen

Public interest in the military budget is

According to good authority the num
ber of recruits to "be relieved annually

made elsewhere. The Munchener
Nachrichten asserts tbat 14,000
men will be made idle in
Bavaria alone by the tax, while the
poorer classes throughout will suffer, as
a cheap foreign cigar is an impossibility,
and the price of cigars of home grown

Caoliaki, Oct. 22,-Further advices

late storm and floods, which are more

It is estimated that not lees than 200
villagers of Sansterete were drowned.
The flood swept through thevillage with
sudden fury, and in a moment the
streets became rivers that carried every
thing with them; houses whirled
through the streets like corks, and the
occupants did not have an opportunity
to save themselves. Many were asleep
when the torrent came, and men,
women and children were drowned be
fore an effort could be made to save
them. Half of the village was swept

to it is difficult.
Telegraphic communication with San-
Btrete is partially restored, but no de
tails of the loss of life and property have
yet been learned. It can be seen from
an eminence overlooking the place that
half the houses have been ruined, and
that the destruction caused by the flood
is general.
Later reports say 63 bodies of victims
have been recovered, and searching par
ties are actively prosecuting the work.
The town hall and 300 houses were de
stroyed, and fully 100 persons drowned.
The damage in the surrounding country
is immense. Troops have been sent to

Passengers Compelled to Keep Below
Decks for Two Bays—The Noble
Ship Bravely Outrode
A Cyclone.
Naw York, Oct. 22.—The passengers
on the French steamer La Touraine,
which got in today, were glad to get
ashore. For nearly two day they were
imprisoned below decks, while the vea>
sel was tossed about, up and down,
hither and thither, by agenuine cyclone.
Wednesday evening there came from the
south a weird roaring whistle tbat
told of the approach of a cyclone. The
captain got the ship's noee to the south
ward to receive the blow head on, and
i she plowed on at full speed. The first
shock of the wind came upon her port
bow. The wind seemed to come from
every direction at once, and
the mast quivered; the vessel's
head swung unsteadily to the starboard,
and then back. The captain saw that
the vessel had encountered the edge of
a cyclone. He ordered her speed re
duced again and again until tbe indi
cator showed only eight knots. Toward
midnight the storm turned the ship
about, or nearly so. She got back
speedily into the wind, but had to fight
for it. At 3 o'clock the storm began to
abate and by 4 o'clock; the La Touraine
resumed her course.
At 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon a
furious wind, though not as strong as
that of the night before, struck the ves
sel full in the bow. The vessel pitched
forward into the storm, and for 11
hours, until 1 o'clock Friday morning,
passed through almost the same trial
as in tbe night before. The waves
poured over the La Touraine's bows,
and at times splashed nearly as high aa
the top of the smokestacks, but the
captain feared them less than those
that chased across the vessel's quarter
the night before. Toward midnight the
storm abated, and at 1 o'clock the next
morning it was all over,

Only Nine Jurors Accept'd Out of a
Large Number of Talesmen.
Fresno, Oct. 22.—The work of secur
ing a jury in the case of the people
against George Constant, or Sontag,
charged jointly with Chriß. Evans and
John Sontag, with the Rolinda train
robbery, was continued in Judge Holmes'
court this morning. The court room
was packed with spectators, many of
whom were ladies. Thirteen talesmen
were closely examined as to tbeir fitness
to serve as jurors in the case. Most had
a fixed opinion as to the gilt or inno
cence of the defendant. Nine jurors
were secured up to noon.
At the afternoon session nine tales
men were examined, but none of them
accepted. There still remain three
jurors to be obtained. The usual ques
tions were asked, and nothing of inter
est was elicited. All of them bad an
opinion as to the guilt or innocence of tbe
defendant. The trial will be resumed
Monday morning.
Notwithstanding the monotony of the
proceedings, the court room was crowded.
The prosecution claims to have a sure
case against Sontag, while the defense
is equally confident that nothing can be
proven against him.
