With Mighty Acclaim.
The Largest Hags Meeting the Great
Metropolis Ever Saw.
Qovernor Flower Presided Over the Gi

the Orator of the Occasion.
Overflow Meeting;*.
By the Aeso-iated Press. 1
New Yobk, Oct. 25.—-Tammany has
ratified. With the glow and flash of red
fire in the sky, with the roar of rising
cheers, and with the acclaim of thou
sands oi braves, tho great Democratic
society made known tonight that it was
loyal to tbe Democratic nominees.
While the bells of tbe big Tammany hall
shook and rocked and swayed to welcome
Senator Hill, and while the throngs
about twelve open-air overflow stands
filled the streets and paralyzed traffic for
blocks around, the Tammany leaders
declared their fealty.
It was the most gigantic mass meeting
the metropolis of America ever saw.
When the doors were thrown open at 7
o'clock, tbe throng that had
stood clamoring' for two hours
rushed in, and in a few min
utes the building was packed;
yet there seemed slight diminution in
tbe crowd outside. Then came a wait
of an hour. National Chairman Har
rity, accompanied by National Commit
teemen Dickinson and Smalley, and
many other prominent Democrats, then
came, and the applause that greeted
them had scarcely died away when a
hurricane of eheera went forth as a wel
come to the speakers of the evening,
who came upon the stage.
Governor Flower was • introduced as
chairman, and for. several minutes he
was unable to speak, owing to tbe dea'
ening burst of cheers that went up. Fi
nally he obtained a hearing, and spoke
as follows:
Ia opening, Flower spoke of the sym
pathy the political opponents of Presi
dent Harrison had for him in his be
reavement. He said the Democrats
were working for a Democratic victory,
because they believed tbat would bring
better government and better living ior.
the masses. '1 hough the P-mocracv of'
the Empire state had declared in favor
of another candidate than him whom
tbe majority of the party in the state
wanted, it loyally rubmitted to the wis
dom of the majority in tbe nation, and
throughout tbe entire country no party
machinery was doing greater work for
the Democratic sueeess than the Demo
cratic organizations of New York state.
Referring to the financial interests of
the country, he said: "In business we
bhve no confidence in an agent who
tquandera our income, and is afterwards
detected covering up his tracks by
changing his method of bookkeeping.
That is exactly what the Republican
administration and Republican congress
has done. For } ears there has been set
aside in the treasury a fund for the re
demption of national bank notes. The
government is bound to use it for that
purpose, and through the Cleveland ad
ministration and through a portion of
Harrison's administration, it was treated
as a liability and reserve fund. When
Cleveland went out of office it amounted
to about $8,000 000; it now amounts to
about $25,000,000. But it was recently
transferred from the liability to the as
sets side of tbe treasury statement, and
is one of several latge sums which are
used to cover up tbe actual deficiency.
If the same system of bookkeeping with
which Harrison's administration began
were still u*ed, there would be revealed
an actual deficit of over $46,000,000."
The McKinley protection did some
good, of course, said Flower; it tempo
rarily stimulated certain industries and
encouraged new ones, but tbe trouble
with that kind of protection, according
to tbe Democratic view, was that it was
not only unjust to tbe great body of
consumers, but have an artificial and
unhealthy stimulus to such industries
as it designed to protect.
" A.B to tha force bill," be concluded,
"when the Republican party has reached
a condition where to insure its political
supremacy, it dare not trust the unin
timidated, honest vote of the people,
but tries to perpetuate its power by a
deliberate, arbitrary subversion of tbe
constitutional government, it is time for
the local governments everywhere to
rise up and strike the scepter of power
from such unworthy hands."
Following Flower's speech came the
unanimous adoption of resolutions,
which, after endorsing Cleveland and
Stevenson and condemning the force
bill, said: "To our brethren through
out tbe country we pledge such a decis
ive majority in thia city for the Demo
cratic candidatea ac will secure the elec
toral vote of thia atate for Cleveland and
Stevenson, for the promotion of peace
and good will among tbe sections, and
for tbe commercial emancipation of the
industrial masses of thia country from
the restrictions and oneroua burdens
imposed upon them by Republican clasa
hill given an ovation.
Governor Flower then introduced Sen
ator Hill. At tbe mention of the ex
governor's name there waa another
great outburst of cheers. "Hill I"
"Hill 1" was ahouted time after time. It
spread to the atreet and waa taken up
by the multitude, and only died away
when tbe people became exhausted.
The senator awaited patiently the res
toration of order, and then apoke.
In opening, Hill referred to the sup
port he received from the Democracy of
the Empire atate during hia political
career. Continuing, he said: "I place
? ;reat reliance in the predictionaof intel
igent political observers of the success
of our national candidatea in the atate,
upon the immense majority which
is expected to be rolled up in
this city tinder tbe auspices
of the magnificent, organization of Tam
many hall. Those who, because of
personal disappointments, would en
courage the temporary defeat of tbe
party, usually live to regret their action,
and realize how difficult it is for tbe
party to regain the ground unwisely
and foolishly lost. I believe in healthy,
strong, vigorous partisanship, but not
tbe manifestation of a narrow, hide
bound or selfish spirit."
Hill then turned his attention to the
tariff, and made an exhaustive argu
ment against the constitutionality of
Republican protection. He then dis
cussed tbe views of Madison and Jack
son, and said of tbe Democratic posi
tion :
"We have not advocated and do not
advocate free trade, because tbe govern
ment needs the revenues for its support,
and rather than resort to direct taxation
to secure them, we favor duties upon
imports as the beet and easiest method
of obtaining revenues. 'We denounce
Republican protection as a fraud; as
tbe robbery of the great majority of the
American people for the benefit of a
fen;' is the truthful language of tbe
Democratic platform. It will be ob
served. It is Republican protection
! thus denounced, not the mild protec
! tion of our early history to real infant
industries, when an excuse for it was
more defensible. Republican protec
tion becomes worse and more in
tolerable as the years roll
on. If the Republican platform of 1892
is construed to mean exactly what it
nays, then what becomes of tbe Mo
Kinley law, which is not baaed upon
any such doctrine ?
"In one aspect the situation looks as
though the Republican party had be
come frightened over the operations of
the McKinley law and feared a renewal
of the popular verdict of 1890 upon it,
and hence sought to retreat from the
ultra position heretofore taken by it*
Our opponents are dilligently seeking to
alienate the laboring people from tbe
Damocratic party. The Democratic
party is, and always has been, a true
friend of labor. The laborer's interests
are all bound up in tbe welfare of the
Democratic party, and will remain so as
long as the party remains faithful to its
On the force bill Hill said: "It is the
most important issue involved in the
election. If Republican success should
ensue as the result of the election, the
measure would become a reality, with
all its dire and unfortunate conse
quences. Unwise financial, industrial
or tariff legislation can easily be repealed
if it proves unsatisfactory, but political
legislation, fastened upon the country to
secure undisguised party advantage,
will not be readily surrendered, although
its in justice may be fully demonstrated.
The safest way is by every means in
our power to prevent its original
enactment, rather than trust to |
the generosity of our opponents
•"afxerit i« fastened upon the country.
Our opponents do not discuss this issue
much, seeking to evade and ignore it.
President Harrison, in his letter of
acceptance, endeavors to draw public
attention from it by the mild suggestion
of a non-partisan commission to revise
tbe federal election laws. Blame, the
shrewdest of ail the Republican leaders,
recently advised the abandonment or
ignoring of the force bill issue, bnt
tbe vice-presidential candidate vig
orously defends, in effect, the sub
stance, spirit and purpose of the force
bill. His course does credit to his con
sistency, although it may be a reflection
upon his good judgment. This issue
alone makes the south solid for the
Democratic party."
Ia concluding,' Hill said: "Our cause
is worthy the support of every patriot;
the reforms which we demand are neces
sary for the safety and welfare of the re
public. We demand a change of sys
tem ; a change of tbe administration par
ties, tbat we may have a change of meas
ures and of men."
Senator Hill was warmly applauded
Lieutenant-Governor Sheehan fol
lowed Hill, and General Sickels called
upon the veterans to read Cleveland's
letter of acceptance, and fix their eyes
upon that paragraph which relates to
their interests and pensions. Congress
man Cumminga also spoke.
While tbe great indoor meeting waa
in progress, speeches were being made
from stands erected along Thirteenth
and Fourteenth streets, from Broadway
to Third avenue. One hundred and
twenty speakers had been divided among
the stands, and speeches were made in
German, French, English and Italian.
A rumor was in circulation tonight to
night that the county Democracy would
withdraw their local ticket. Prominent
members of the county Democracy,
however, declined to verify the rumors.

Taking Off.
Br the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 25.—The death in
the White House of Mrs. Harrison
makes the second case in the history of
the executive mansion, in which the
wife of the president died there. Sep
tember 10,1842, Letitia Christian Tyler,
first wife of President John Tyler, died
in the White House. She entered it in
delicate health, and was unable, to per
form tbe social duties of the place; but
her death nevertheless came as a sur
prise and shock to the country. The
tolling of church bells the following day
announced the death. The tuneral
ceremonies took place in the east room.
Two presidents also have died in tbe
White House. William Henry Harrison,
President Benjamin Harrison's grand
father, ended his days there, just one
| month after his inauguration. Zacha
; riah Taylor, tbe old Mexican war hero,
I also died in the White House, in July of
the second year after his inauguration.
There have been a few other deaths in
the historic building, of which two were
members of the president's family cir
cle. Lincoln's little boy Thad died
there, and so did Frederick Dent, Mra.
Grant's father.
During President Arthur's adminis
tration, tbe call of death interrupted
one of his New Year'a day receptions.
While the reception wae in progress,
the Hawaiian minister suddenly fell and
died in a very short time.
The guard around the executive man
sion to keep out intruders was continued
Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Rusk and other
ladies of tbe families oi members of the
cabinet, called this morning and spent
a time with the family.
The death of Mra. Harrison will inter
rupt for some time the social functiona
of Washington.
This morning Mrs. Harrison's remains
were embalmed, and will probably lie in
the room in which she died until the
private services are held Thursday.
The president ia averse to having the
White House flag displayed at half must,
ao it was not placed on tbe staff this
morning a-s usual. The flags on the
public buildings are at half staff. A
plain black crape knot on the White
Houee door is the only outward symbol
of mourning.
The president is bearing np remark
ably well under hia affliction. The
traces of great sorrow are plain, hut he
has nerved himself to face his affliction
with fortitude. Those who saw him
thia morning found bis eyes red with
weeping and his voice broken with emo
tion, but he constantly endeavored to
repreaa ita influence.
After the end came last night, the
President retired to hia own room, ad
joining that in which the departed lay.
He remained in strict seclusion until
thia morning, having hia dark hour
Such members of the cabinet aa were
in tbe city called thia morning, and had
a conference with the preaident. He ex
pressed a wish tbat public business be
transacted as usual, and the members of
the cabinet were therefore at their desks
moat of the day. Such oi them as can
be spared will accompany the remains
to Indianapolis.
It has been found impracticable to
bold tbe funeral services Wednesday, so
it has been decided to postpone them
till Thursday morning. They will be in
no sense public, admission to them be
ing limited strictly to those invited.
Only relatives, members of the cabinet
and their families, and a very few inti
mate friends will he in attendance, and
ao far aa the official position of the
preaident will permit, tbe aervicea will
be tbe aame as in the case of a member
of a private family. They will be held
in tbe East room, and conducted
according to the Presbyterian form by
Rev. T. 8. Hamlin, pastor of the church
which the president attends. The body
will not lie in state. After tbe services
tbe brdy will be accompanied to Indian
apolis, where serviced of a more public
character will be held in the First Pres
byterian church, and the body interred
in Crown Hill cemetery.
nearly all the relatives present.
All the members of the immediate
families of President and Mrs. Harrison
are hete except the president's brother,
John Scott Harrison, of Kansay City,
now on his way; Carter Harrison, of
Tennessee, and Mrs. Harrison's only
brother, John Scott, of Portland, Ore.,
who left there yesterday. The latter
will probably not come to Washington,
but go direct to Indianapolis, which city
there ia only a bare possibility of his
reaching in time for the interment.
About 1 o'clock Russell Harrison, Mr. I
McKee and Private Secretary Halford
visited the establishment of Undertaker
Speare and selected a casket, with fine
black broadcloth, a copper metallic in
ner case, hermetically sealed and lined
with cream tufted satin. Tbe exterior
has no ornamentation whatever, except
oxidized bar bandies, which run the lull
length, and a solid silver oxidized plate,
bearing this inscription:

cedar, highly polished, with brass
bandies and corners.
I Secretary Bask will reach here to
night, and Secretary Eikine will also ar
rive in time for tbe funeral, so all the
merobers of the cabinet will be present.
They will act as honorary pall-bearers
at the services in this city. Vice-Presi
dent Morton may also be asked to serve.
The body-bearers will be employes of
the White House. The pall bearers at
Indianapolis will be Dr. H. R. Allen,
John B. Elam, Hugh Hanna. E. B. Mar
tindale, Gen. Lew Wallace of Crawfords
ville, Hon. Wm. B. NiWack of Via
cennes, John R. Elder and Theo. P.
AH the members of the president's
family, with the exception of his three
grandchildren, will accompany the re
mains to Indianapolis. This, of course,
includes Dr. Scott, the venerable father
of the deceased. It was at first felt tbat
his advanced age would prevent his
making the trip, but when the matter
was broached to him, he announced
emphatically tbat he proposed to go
and would not listen to a proposition to
the contrary.
Besides the members of the cabinet,
and probably the ladies of their families
it is also likely that Vice President Mor
ton and family, Chief Justice Fuller and
a few others will be specially invited to
accompany the party..
