Two Monster Campaign Rallies iv Indianapolis. The Old, Old Story About the G.O.P. aud Its Glorious Achievements—Ketd's References to the Presi dent's Bereavement. By the Associated Press Indianapolis, Oct. 24.—Hon. White law Reid and Chauncey M, DepeW re ceived a genuine Hooeier welcome all along the line in Indiana today. Logans port was the first stopping place of im portance. As the distinguished visitors debarked, they were roundly cheered by the crowds who had gathered ; the firing of cannon and the ringing of bells, an nounced their arrival. Messrs. Reid and Depew were escorted to the rink by the Logan Republican club and other organizations. The rink was packed, and 1000 or more people were unable to get inside. Reid was first introduced, and talked of the calamity cry raieed by the Dem ocrats. He said he failed to see any eigns of tribulation in his trip across the northern part of Indiana. Depew was then introduced and spoke briefly. After leaving Logansport the train stopped at Kokomo, where preparations for their reception were made on an elaborate scale. Some 6000 people, with gaily trimmed wagons, were present, and stands were erected near by, from which brief speeches were made. The distinguished travelers also spoke at Sbarpsvifle, Tipton and 1 Nobleeville, where the people turned out by thou sands. at the president's home. Tbe home of President Harrison ex tended a royal greeting to Reid and Depew. Nearly every city and town in Indiana was represented by a delegation. They assembled with drum corps and brass bands at the union depot, and es corted the distinguished visitors to the Dennison hotel. Here the enthusiastic crowd called Reid and Depew to the balcony, where both spoke a few words and bowed their acknowledgments. Tonight's meeting was under tbe auspices of the Commercial Travelers' Republican club of Indiana. The parade preceding the addresses moved at 4 o'clock. Tbe twn largest, bal*a in t&s city were procured for the occasion. Both were packed, and scores of people were turned away, but an overflow meeting was addressed by ex Congress man Mason, of Chicago, while thous ands of others marched and counter marched upon the principal streets. Each distinguished gentleman spoke at both places of meeting. DEPEW'S SPEECH. Depew spoke first at Tomlinson's ball. His appearance was greeted by tremendous cheering. When quiet was restored, Depew said: "Ordinarily my business engage ments are so exacting tbat it is difficult for me to get away from New York, but when a request came from the president, asking me to go to Indiana, a mission co solemn and so sacred, I felt that tbe place for me was at the home of General Harrison." The speaker then referred at some length to the panics that periodically conyuleed the country, from its early hi:, tory up to war. The immunity from them in late years, he attributed to the Republican policy of protection, which was proof against them. "Tbe Demo crats object to these references to the past," said he, "and there ia a certain implied agreement between the two parties, that if the Democrats won't lie about the past of the Republican party, the latter will not tell the truth about the past of the Democrats." Depew then devoted some time to a review of the tariff question, which closed his speech. BEID'S ADDRESS. The meeting at English's opera house was addressed by Mr. Reid. He received a great ovation when he waa introduced. He spoke as follows: "At this moment, in this city and in this presence, one thought is uppermost with us all. One of your friends and neighbors, a great son of Indiana, whom she has loaned for a time to the repub lic, and wbo, therefore, belongs now, not to you alone, but to 65,000,000 peo ple, is in deadly trouble. We make our public men more public than do any other people in the world, and so tbe White House is to America the cynosure of all eyes. We are not a people who talk much about such things, but from shore to shore of our continent, there is no decent head of a family wbo was not glad in his soul that his children saw such a household in the executive man sion, and now the light of tbe bouse is going out. Into the holy circle of tbat grief none of un may venture. We can only say, as the whole land says: 'May the God of their fathers and our fathers be with them both.' "You will not blame me if, at this time in this city, and in the presence of this universal sympathy, I am little in clined to partisan vehemence in discus sing partisan disagreements. lam here tonight to say no word in disparagement of any Democrat as such. "If he stands by the constitution and laws of our common country, whatever our differences as partisans, I am proud to clasp hands with him as an Ameri can. If he does net stand by them, I'm bia enemy now and forever, juet as in 1861. "Many of us are fresh from a wonder ful spectacle, which even our great grandchildren's children's children can not see repeated. In a marvelous city, which 60 years ago was a wilderness, were gathered the official representa tives of the republic, and most of tbe 44 independent states tbat compose the great multitudeof t he self governing free men who have built up this mighty nation upon this continent to commemorate the four hundredth anniversary ef its discovery. As I saw the noble proces sion wind through the streets and enter the largest assembly chamber yet reared by human hands; as I saw grouped there before the largest audience ever gathered beneath a single roof, with all the official forms of state acd a dignity that befitted the solemn national cere monial of one of the greatest of earthly governments; ac I witnessed this pa geant and strove to grasp an adequate conception of its significance, one un bidden thought recurred: How differ ent would have been this celebration; how different our actual condition ; how inexpreseibly different the estimation of us by other nations of the globe, if the Republican party had been defeated in 1860, or even in 1864! It is the pecu liar glory of that grand old party that has guided this country for thirty years to unparalleled prosperity, and tbat even its enemies are forced to approve, if not to praise, its history." Mr. Reid proceeded at some length to review the currency and tariff question, and then spoke of the record of the Harrison administration, the etory of which, eaid he, "is known and read of all men. The first Indiana president has brought fresh distinction to a name conspicuous in his country's annals for more than a century, and has shed fresh honor upon a state ac proud of her past and as ambitious for her future as any in the whole glittering galaxy. The story of the administration is well known, but everybody does not hear so often that the president himself has been the guiding mind and inspiring soul of its whole success. Whatever you do, he will be re-elected. We mean to see to that in New York, We did it the last time, and shall do it again. But for the sake of this great state, and her great and worthy son, I beg tbat no effort of yours shall be lacking to make sure that when the triumph for Indiana's president is won we may hear among the victors the voice of Indiana." DEMOCRATS ON DECK. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE QUES TION ABODBD. Hourke Cockran Has a Few Things to Tell the Hooslers—A Kouslug Democratic Bally In Indianapolis. Indianapolis, Oct. 24.—Tbe Republi can procession bad not been moving more than two minutes from the eastern end of town, before the Democratic parade started from the west end. Such a crowd of spectators was never before seen in Indianapolis. The best of good humor everywhere prevailed, and there was not the slightest disturbance at any point. Bonrke Gockran, who arrived from New Yoik, held a reception at bis hotel , daring the afternoon. At 7 o'clock be started for the Grand Opera house, where be was to speak. He said in part: "Tbe issues of this cardpaign enter into the prospects which lie before every toiler; they affect the security of the roof which shelters your home and of tbe clothing which you put upon the backs of your children; and, above and beyoud all, they affect the very stability of thia republic, and the existence of re publican institutions in the land. We are face to face with a conspiracy which waa hatched in the inner councils of tbe Republican party, which has for its ob ject the overthrow of this government as it waa founded by the framers of the constitution,and widened and broadened by the experience and patriotism of this people. "We stand, first of all, at the threshold of this campaign, con fronted with tbe cry which our Republican friends raise tbat the Demo cratic party ia hostile to the industries of thia country, and that we have raised our hands to stop the industrial progress of the nation. We have de clared t hat we believe the government haa no constitutional power to levy du ties, except for the support of tbe gov ernment, economically administered, and it ia thia primary declaration which has aroused a atorm of Republican in dignation all over the country. Now op posite to that declaration, ia the declar ation that tbe government has constitu tional power to levy taxes beyond ita own neceßaities, extravagantly ad ministered and I would like to know whether tbe Republican statesmen are prepared to defend the proposition. They have laid great atrer s upon our declaration tbat we re gard Republican protection as unconsti tutional, and I observe that Mr. Blame ia out today in an article in which he pretends to declare that Thomas Jeffer son, Madison and Jackson, are all repu diated by the latter day De mocratic dec laration. They tell us that the supreme court has decided this system of Repub lican protection is constitutional, My friends, there are two aapecta to look at tbat question. First, you must consider whether, in point of fact Re publican protection results in a salutary influence upon the industrial condition of the country, and afterwards we can diecuss the abstract question as to whether it conflicts with the constitu tion, or whether it is in accordance with it." Mr. Cockran punned thia line of argu ment at considerable length, giving tbe history of tariff agitation, and closed with a comparison of the results of a protective tariff and free trade. Too Much of a Bisk. It ia not unusual for colda contracted in tbe fall to hang on all winter. In auch cases catarrh or chronic broncbitia are almoat aure to result. A fifty-cent bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure any cold. Can you afford to risk ao much for so small an amount? Thia remedy is intended especially for bad colds and croun and can always be depended upon. For sale by C. F. Heinzeman, 222 North Main, druggist. An Electoral Fusion In Oregon.

The Long Vigil at the White House Is Over. Death Has Bereft the President of His Noble Wife. The Gentle Spirit Took Its Flight Early This Morning. Without a Sign of Pain the Sufferer Sank to Heat—The President Alone In His Chamber With His Grief and God. By the Associated Press: Washington, Oct. 25.—Mrs. Harrison is no more. At 1:40 p. m. came the end. For the second time in the history of the White House a president's wife died within its walls. Mrs. Harrison met death with the patience and resignation of a devout Christian, and her last days were comparatively free from pain. For 24 hours the president and his family had been almost constantly at her bed side awaiting the end. Last night was without special inci dent, but late and early, though fre quently he could have slept, but he slept little, if at all—the president was in and out of the sick chamber, and was never easy for any length of time. HER LAST DAY ON EARTH. Today was clear and crisp and cool, and perhaps the inspiring sunshine and the dryness of the atmosphere some what helped the invalid and acted as a stimulant. Whenever she awoke from her troubled and unsatisfactory sleep, she was conscious. She could still recog nize her surroundings, and a glance of recognition greeted the physician when he entered the sickroom this morning Attorney-General Miller called cany and saw Private Secretary Halford; so did Baron De Struve, the Russian min ister ; Minister Grip, of Sweden; Rev- Dr. Hamlin, tbe family pastor; Assist ant Secretary Grant and Indian Com missioner Morgan. Dr. Gardner was at the patient's bed side nearly the entire forenoon. He went away two or three times to attend other professional duties, but at no one time was he absent more than half an hour. When asked about her condition he frankly admitted that death was very near, and that, remarkable as Mrs. Harrison's vitality was, he did not see how she could live more than a few hours. HER LAST LOVING WORDS. Mrs. Harrison at noon was still con scious. A little before that, the presi dent, leaning over her, asked if she wanted anything. With her old-time smile, that the approach of death only made more tender and trustful, she an swered low, but very distinctly: "No, my dear." At 1 o'clock, as be left the house, Dr. Gardner said he did not think more than five or six hours of life remained for Mrs. Harrison. He said most of the time she was in a sleepy, semi-conscious condition, from which she occasionally rallied. During these spells ot wakeful ness, she recognized those around her, and sometimes responded feebly, but clearly and intelligently, to the inquir ies made. The doctor said his efforts were directed solely to making the pa tient as comfortable as possible in her dying hours. She could not take nour ishment of any kind, and frequent ap plications of stimulating moisture to her parched lips was the only treatment tbat afforded any relief. CHANGE FOB THE WORSE. The doctor returned about noon and found the patient even weaker than be fore, almost completely prostrated, and unable longer to apeak or cough. Ap parently abe was conscious. There waa little change during tbe afternoon, but every change was for the worse, and the watchers were fearful that death would ensue about sundown. Many measagea of condolence were received at tbe White House during the day. From 4 o'clock until well into tbe evening tbe President and all the mem bers of his? family remained unceasingly at Mrs. Harriaona's bedside. Ac the day waned, and the aun sank behind the western hills, the anxieties of tbe watch era became more and more intense. Tbe shadows deepened; the sun sank to rest; night came, and yet the end was not. A PBKMATUBB BULLETIN, The telegraph instruments in the eastern part of the building were stead ily ticking all day, bringing from far and near inquiries from friends of the family. But after 6 o'clock they ticked faster and faster. Some one had sent to Indianapolis a bulletin of Mrs. Har rison's death. Tbe premature report spread rapidly over tbe country, from wast to east, and there began to flow in upon the wires messages of condolence addressed to the president. Mr. Hal ford promptly authorized a denial, but it did not overtake the original story, and the messages continued to arrive in numbers. ANOTHER SINKING SPELL. Just after 6 o'clock, Mrs. Harrison suffered another sinking spell, and messages were sent by Halford to tbe absent cabinet officers, asking them to return to Washington immediately. But the sick woman etill had sufficient reserve of strength to rally once more and repulse the attack of the dread victor who hovered at tbe threshold. Soon after 9 o'clock tbe physician an nounced tbat the patient might be ex pected to live until midnight. Even this small grain of comfort was received with gratitude by the anxious and grief stricken husband and family. THE SLOWLY EBBING TIDE. It could hardly be said the patient was unconscious during the evening hours, for she betrayed some signs of understanding the attempts made to relieve her last moments by partially opening her parched lips to receive the stimulating fluid applied to them from time to time, but not a drop could she swallow, and the power of speech bad apparently left her frame forever. In addition, the physician's experienced PRICE FIVE CENTS. eye noticed, as the evening wore on, an increase in the difficulty of breathing, which he regarded as an ominous sign. Hour after hour slipped away, each leaving the patient weaker in turn, yet so gradual was the decline, that it could not be said positively at any minute that she had materially failed. The measure of the ebbing tide was her respiration, which slowly sunk from 15 at nightfall to 12 at midnight. The physician had said that if she tided over that hour she might survive until daylight, so there was a visible air of relief when the gong sounded 12. Tbe hope inspired, howev er, was only of sbart duration. THE END VERY NEAR. About 12:3o o'clock tbe physician dis cerned a noticeable weakness of the heart's action, followed almost immedi ately by a slight decrease of the respira tion. He noti tied the grief stricken fam ily grouped around tbe couch that the end appeared to be very near. This in telligence had a most depressing effect upon the president, and he tustained himself with tbe greatest difficuliy. Dr. Gardner, after narrowly examin ing the countenance and feeling the pulse, sorrowfully announced that all in dications justified the belief that the pa tient could not survive more than half an hour. This was 12:45 o'clock. The minutes passed with frightful rapidity, and half an hour passed. The almost helplees form, however, still retained the sacred spark. The resistance offered by the constitution of the patient was marvelous and surprising to the physi cian and all at the bedside. There was no struggle, no exhibition of pain, but a simple passive resistance that was baf fling in its quiet intensity. In a few minutes Dr Gardner took up the feeble hand, and felt the wrist. The blood crept through the contracting arteries, but how slowly! He shook his head and said a brief fifteen minutes must surely finish the struggle. The ag itation of the family could no longer be controlid, and realizing his utter help lessness to longer cope with the formid able foe, and from the sacredness of such a grief as this, the devoted physi cian and friend bowed his head and passed out of the door. Outride of tbe threshold he took his station and waited. It was not long. The minutes flew like seconds, and suddenly there was expression of heart-stricken woe, and THE END HAD COMB. The president* was beside his dying wife, as he had been for nine hours con tinuously, and his was the last of the loved features her eyes had dwelt upon. Her breath waa labored and very slow. As the hands of the clock crept towards the next hour, it grew fainter yet and less frequent, and as the time piece marked the hour of 1:40 o'clock, there was the interruption of a feeble breath, a resumption, and then a stop, this time to be eternal, and the life oi Car oline Scott Harrison had gone out peace fully and quietly and without pain. AT THE DEATH BED. All of the family in Washington were present at the death bed, except the three little grandchildren and the ven erable Dr. Scott, father of Mrs. Harri son. They were: President Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. McKee, Mr. and Mrs. Russell Harrison, Lieutenant and Mrs. Parker, Mrs. Dimmick and Mrs. New comer. In addition, Mrs. Harrison's faithful maid,Josephine,and Miss Davis, a trained nurse, were in the room. THE PRESIDENT'S GRIEF. The members of the family spent a few minutes around the lifeless clay, and let a vail be drawn over their deep grief. When they emerged, the presi dent retired immediately to his own room and closed his door. The other members of the family, respecting bis evident wish, allowed him to remain unmolested to contemplate his great be reavement, and commune with his Maker. THE QUIET OF THE GRAVE. The last sad offices for the dead were performed by the nurse, Miss Davis, who composed the remains for the un dertaker. Tbe lights were dimmed, and the quiet of the grave lay upon tbe great white mansionT FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS. The funeral arrangements have been concluded as follows: Relig'ous services will be held in the White house Wednesday morning, after which the remains will be taken to Indianapolis, where the interment will take place at Crown Hill cemetery, Thursday. CABINET OFFICEBB RETURNING. Secretary John W. Foster and Secre taries Busk and EJkina telegraphed Private Secretary Halford, in response to a message about Mrs. Harrison's con dition, that they will return to Wash ington immediately. MRS. HARRISON'S MALADY. The Illnes* that Carried Her Off Super induced by Grip. Washington, Oct. 24.—Mrs. Harri aon'a illness was tbe outcome of an at tack of grip during the winter of 1890 --91. While at Cape May in the summer of 1891, ahe contracted a cold which caused the return of her cough, lasting the entire summer. During the winter she was well enough to attend the ex acting aoiial|dutien of the White house, but in January, 1892, the cough, which had never entirely left her, commenced again, troubling her considerably. In the following March ahe had an attack of grip, followed by catarrhal pneu monia. The coughing spells then in creased in severity until they were ac companied by bloody expectorations, and about the first of May she suffered from a hemorrhage of the lungs, which though not severe caused great prostra tion. From thia time until July 6th. the date of her removal to Loon Lake, N. V , the patient did not undergo much change. After her arrival at l oon Lake, ahe commenced to improve, but the im provement waa of abort duration, and an examination, September Ist, showed that the upper half of her right lung waa completely consolidated. Notwith standing ahe waß able to continue her drives until September 7th, when she was stricken with an attack of nub-acute pleurisy, accompanied by a fusion of fibroserouß fluid, completely filling the cavity of the pleura on the right side, necessitating tapping three times. During tbe complication a consulta tion waa held by Dr. Gardner, Dr. I (Continued on Fifth P«*e,J
