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
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."
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.
The Revolt in Santiago Del Ettero Is
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.

She Says the Mongols Are In Many Re
spects the Superiors of the Cau
casians—lrish Laborers
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.
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.
Ad Incipient Race War Again On in
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. The governor was tel
egraphed to for military assistance, and
Sanford offered help, but the local heads
here believe the crisis is past. The white
citizens are armed and watchful, but the
Bupply of rifles is rather deficient. The
negroes are well armed, and in camp
about one mile from town.

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
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
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. Owing to the
drouth, mountain fires have broken out
at several places.

celebration. He left Chicago Friday
night and telegraphed that he would be
in New York at 2 o'clock this afternoon.

Springfield, Mase., Oct. 23.—The gos

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

The officers of the church and police
were speedily summoned, but for more
than three hours Emmons stood his.
