' MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1892. BLAINE ON THE ELECTION The Long Promised Utterance at Last Forthcoming. A Lengthy Article in the North American Review. He Notes tke Lack of Excitement in the Present Campaign. Harrison's Letter of Acceptance Com pared with Cleveland's — Much Space Oevoted to Hla Own Reciprocity Hobby. By the Associated Press. New York, Oct. 23.—Blame's loDg promised utterances on the presidential election of 1892 Appears in the November number of the North American Review, which will be published tomorrow. It occupies 13 pages. Blame notes the lack of excitement attending the present elections, suggesting that the change may be accounted for by the growth in population, and the consequent absorp tion in vast commercial and financial operations, and that it may possibly indicate the subsidence in the future of extreme partisanship. Of President Harrison's letter of ac ceptance, he says, among other things - "Perhaps none of his predecessors made so exhaustive, and none a more clear presentation of the question involved." Cleveland's letter is subjected to a searching criticism. Blame finds that in a greater measure than Harrison's it departs from the party platform. In fact, "Cleveland made the platform upon which he is now before the people," and "Cleveland's departures from ihe positions of the party's platform on the question of free trade confirms the im pression which has been general, that a large proportion of the Democratic party believe in protection of one form." Blame makes a caustic comment upon Cleveland's utterance on currency and state banks. He upholds the Republican policy of granting liberal pensions, saying: "The amount we contribute for pensions is larger than the amount paid by any of the European nations for a standing army. Surely binding up the wounds < f war is a more mercifui and honorable work than preparing the country for a new one." The most remarkable thing in the can vass of 1892 Blame regards as the "man ner in which, in some sections of the country, all other issues are put out of sight, and the force bill alone is brought into prominence." The representations made at to the purpose and effect of the force bill, he declares to be inconsistent with the spirit of Harrison's letter. Blame is 4 ull and explicit in his treat ment of the subject of reciprocity, claiming that a material increase has been caused in United States trade by reciprocal treaties. He quotes interest ing figures relating to the increase, and predicts, regarding Cuba, that we shall conquer by commerce far better than by force of arms, and cordially establish such mutual interests between Cuba and •his country, that commercially the two countries will be one. Blame, dwelling upon the claim of the Democratic party to be the Jeffersonian party, said: ''It would surprise Jeffer son if he could once more appear in the flesh aud learn that he is held as the en dorser of all the principles and measures advocated by the Democratic party to day. It is perhaps not worth while to enter into an elaborate argument on the subject. Democracy owes no little of its success to the persistence with which its adherents have made its disciples be lieve this pretention through the muta tions of their party. In vain it is pointed out that the position of Jefferson on other subjects was directly the reverse of the Democratic position; he is duly quoted at the next convention, and a new oath of allegiance is taken to his principles. In 1801, after a severe con test, Jefferson came to the presidency as the founder and head of the Republican party, though the prefix Democratic was sometimes, but seldom, used. The tenacity with which Jefferson held to the protective principles was only propor tionate to the necessities of the country. His action in 1807, when he declined to recommend an appeal or alteration of the revenue law, after a surplus of $19,000,000 was accumulated, put hftn in the sharpest contrast to Cleveland, who in his term of office treated the surplus accumulated as the sum of all villanies." In conclusion, Blame says: "It is in teresting and suggestive to look over the Elatformß of the two parties, and see ow much alike they are in several vital measures, after the real and decis ive issues are stated. If the parties would aim to discover and define the is sues on which there is a vital difference of opinion, and would confine discus sion to them, it would not only simplify the contest and be a welcome relief to the two candidates, but would also greatly help in arriving at the truth, which is the ultimate object of popular discussion and popular election." IN POLITICS THIS YEAR. w Knights of Labor Officials Attack the Democratic Party. New York, Oct. 23.—A large number of Knights of Labor and sympathizers assembled tonight at a benefit perform ance tendered James Hughes, the labor knight imprisoned for extortion. Ad dresses were made by Master Workman Powderly and General Treasurer James A. Rice. The latter, who was the first speaker, gave a history of the Hughes case, and said: "What are we going to do about it ? Well, the executive board will remain in session until after elec tion. _ We are going to issue documents showing how laboring men are treated by Democratic governors of Penn sylvania, (Tennessee and New York. We will get even with National Chair man Harrity and bis party. The Knights of Labor are a political organ ization this year, as the Democratic party will learn on election day." General Master Workman Powderly concluded the evening's programme with a bitter attack upon Governor Flower, Chairman Harrity and the Democratic party. He was frequently and loudly applauded for his vigorous denunciation of Democracy. ARGENTINE ADVICES. The Revolt in Santiago Del Ettero Is Berlons. Nkw Yobk, Oct. 23.—The Herald's Valparaiso correspondent says: News came from Buenos Ayres that Governor Rojas, of Santiego del Estero, is still in prison, and that the revolutionists are practically in control of the state. The national cabinet discussed the situation in Santiago del Estero, and there was a division as to the proper course to pur sue. The majority favored federal inter vention, and finance Minister Romero resigned, and the executive asked par mission from the national congress to intervene. It was granted. The gov ernors of all the provinces have been called upon to have the national guard ready for service. It is probable that congress will appoint a commission to inquire into the state of affairs in the province. The situation in the province is grave, and there is liable to be serious trouble before it is settled. King Alfonso Convalescing. Madrid, Oct. 23.—The young king is recovering from the effects of the cold he caught during the Columbus fetes in Seville, bat it has been decided that the court shall remain at Seville until the end of the month. BETTER THAN WHITES. A WOMAN CHAMPIONS THE CHINEBE CHARACTER. She Says the Mongols Are In Many Re spects the Superiors of the Cau casians—lrish Laborers Insulted. New Yobk, Oct. 23.—Mrs. Baldwin, for 20 years a missionary in China, spoke at the Asbury Park Methodist church, today, before a large congrega tion, detailing the kind of treatment she received at the hands of the Chi nese, and stating that she regarded Chinamen superior, in many respects, to other foreigners to whom the United States accords free entrance to the land and citizenship. The speaker said since she had been delivering lectures in this country she had received threatening letters, and not long ago a special police man was detailed to guard her house to prevent a scheme for burning it down. This in Christian America and Brooklyn. She had never been in such danger in China. The Chinese, she said, were good laborers, and could work longer and in places . where others could not, yet they were beaten, bruised and killed, all because they worked, while Irish and others got drunk and would not work as well. When this reference to the Irish was made considerable disturbance arose in the church, and several people left. Continuing, Mrs. Baldwin said it made her sick to hear speeches such as were made during the Columbian celebration, in which America was spoken of as the land of the free. She thought it was not the case. During the war on the Chi nese at Seattle, Cleveland and Bayard were appealed to seven times to protect the Chinese, but they only sent troops to protect the United States mails. LIMITED LIBERTY. Train-robber Perry's Desperate Attempt to Escape. Auburn, N. V., Oct. 23.—The cele brated train robber, Olin Curtis Perry, who escaped from his cell yesterday af ternoon, enjoyed limited freedom just eight hours, when he was again thrust back into confinement, more secure than ever before. Perry was found hid ing in the marble shop, and at once started for liberty, closely pursued by several prison guards. In his precipi tate retreat he rushed directly into the arms of Keeper Smith. The desperado did not surrender immediately, but made an attempt to kill the keeper with a large stone, which he hurled at him. Smith retaliated by striking Perry on the head with a heavy cane. This ended the scrimmage and Perry was carried, unconscious, back to his cell. He came to at last, and remarked that he would make another attempt to es cape as soon as possible. -WHITES AND BLACKS. Ad Incipient Race War Again On in Florida. Titubville, Fla., Oct. 23.—A sheriff's posse was sent out at noon today to ar rest the ring leader of the negroes in last night's shooting affair. The negroes resisted and were fired upon. The posse escaped with a few scratches, but the negro ring-leader was killed and four others wounded.

Mrs. Harrison Hovering Be tween Life and Death. Her Demise Only a Question of a Few Hours. The President and Family All Night at Her Bedside. Remarkable Vitality or the Suffering Woman-The Sands of tire Almost Run Out—A Sad Day at the White House. By the Associated Press Washington, Oct. 23.—Mrs. Harrison is approaching the end. How lung it will be before death supervenes cannot be told. It may be only a few hours, or possibly a day or more, but that she cannot last much longer is certain. This has been a sad Sunday for the president, his family, and the other faithful watchers at Mrs. Harrison's bedside. Dr. Gardner, up to 10 o'clock p. m., paid six visits to the sickroom, in the southwest corner of the president's home, and each time he could give no word of encouragement to the anxious family. The history of the day, as gathered from the reports of the doctor, is one of steady and rapid decline of the little re maining strength of the patient, until it seemed that the utmost limit of weak ness possible with life was reached. The present change for the worse, which is more alarming than any pre vious decline, set in last night. The previous night was a restful one, but last night Mrs. Harrison was uneasy and very restless. This continued through out the night, and as a conseqnence she grew much weaker. She was already in a most exhausted condition, and further loss of strength made it questionable whether even her remarkable vitality could bring about another rally. Dr. Gardner this morning at 8 o'clock found the patient so weak that he was fearful the end was near at hand. He visited her again soon, and found that she continued to grow steadily weaker, and could scarcely move. Her condi tion was so alarming that the doctor re peated his visit'within a short time, and finding all efforts to rally her unavail ing, and that her strength continued to ebb away, he made yet another call two hours later. Dr. Gardner visited the White House at 5 o'clock this afternoon, making the fourth time he had seen Mrs. Harrison daring the day. As he was driving out of the grounds he was stopped by a representative of the Associated Press, and in response to an inquiry, said Mrs. Harrison was in a state of extreme ex haustion, and unless she could rally from it, she was apt to pass away within a few hours. In his opinion, she was as weak as she possibly could be and still live. She began failing this morning, and gradually be-, came weaker and weaker. She displayed remarkable vitality throughout, but had nearly reached the limit of her endurance. In reply to a direct question on the point, Dr. Gard ner said Mrs. Harrison might pass away at any time within a few hours, and again she might linger for forty-eight hours. While he did not exactly say so, he intimated plainly that he feared the end would come before morning. Seven o'clock again found Dr. Gardner at the White House. He stayed about half an hour, end'when he came down stairs could give no word of encourage ment. He said Mrs. Harrison was so weak that she had not even strength to cough, and that her condition was criti cal in the extreme sense of the word. Death might come at any time now. When Dr. Gardner left the house after his 10 o'clock visit, he said Mrs. Harrison was resting quietly, and be did not think she would die tonight. There is still evidence of the patient's wonder ful vitality, for the doctor said, although she is weaker than when he last saw her, yet she is stronger than he ex pected to find her. Mrs. Harrison suf fered from nervousness during the day, and this helped to bring about the ex haustion which has been hastening the decline that has been in progress all day. She sleeps about half an hour ac a time, and takes but little nourish ment, consisting of peptonized beef with stimulants. She is perfectly con scious. Before leaving the house Dr. Gardner notified the president and members of the family of the exceedingly precarious condition of Mrs Harrison, but said he would not call again during the night unless summoned by information of a change in her present condition. The president and family, fearful of the worst, are sitting up with the invalid. Washington, Oct. 24 —At 1:45 a. m. Mrs. Harrison was slowly sinking, and it was feared she would not live through the night. Ai 2:40 a.m. everything was quiet at the White House, but most of the mem bers of the family were still sitting up. A Water Famine In Penniylvanla. Reading, Pa., Oct. 23 —The extent and inconvenience and suffering caused by the great scarcity of water at points north of here, can scarcely be imagined, and it is stated at some places it is actually necessary to guard the locomo tive tanks to prevent the people from carrying off the water.

Kennedy Stout, 43 years old, a wealthy lawyer of Spokane Falls, Washington, and a mem ber of Governor Ferry's personal staff, is a principal in a romantic courtship by mail which will culminate in a wedding on Tuesday evening.to Miss Ida Homan, of Williamsburg, whom he has never eeen. The link which will bring about the union, was furnished by Mies Gertie Homan, sister of the prospective bride. Colonel Stout became acquainted with Miss Gertie when she played Little Lord Fauntleroy in Spokane Falls, some time ago. He wrote her, and come letters received at borne were answered by Mies Ida. In that way a correspondence was opened; then followed a conditional pro posal by mail and an acceptance on the same basis. Colonel Stout was in Chi cago for several days at the Columbian celebration. He left Chicago Friday night and telegraphed that he would be in New York at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Miss Ida was among the first to welcome him as he stepped from the car. She carried his latest picture in her hand, and recognized him immediately. When Miss Homan recognized him, her greeting was: "I'm so glad to see you." Colonel Stout was presented to Miss Homan's escort, and the entire party took a boat for Brooklyn, whence they went to the residence of Miss Homan's parents. A LUNATIC IN CHURCH. THE FREAK OF A RELIGIOUS CRANK AT SPRINGFIELD, MASS. He Preaches the Gospel Troth With a Sword, a Brace of Revolvers and Red Fire—An Exciting Episode. Springfield, Mase., Oct. 23.—The gos pel truth was presented at the point of a sword, also with red fire and revolvers, at the Olivet Congregational church to day. Charles M. Emmons, a gun maker employed at the United States armory, whose mind is unsound upon religious matters, bought a large supply of rock ets, red fire, roman candles, pin wheels and powder, Saturday afternoon, and at midnight took them with him to the church. After entering the church the madman arrayed himself in dust cloths, covering his face, and hanging the big red book mark of the pulpit from a string around his belt. When the sexton arrived to start the morning fires, he was confronted by the en shrouded apparation in the pulpit. Brandishing a revolver, Emmons bade the sexton listen to the truth. The aexton hastily :"etreated, but not before the lunatic fired two shots into the air. The officers of the church and police were speedily summoned, but for more than three hours Emmons stood his. ground. During this time the madman read from the Psalms and Revelations, taking off his shoes after reading the verse which says: "Take off thy shoes for the spot where thou standest is holy ground."
