New York, Oct. 26.—Tbe reception at tbe Imperial hotel tonight, given to ex- President Cleveland by the Buffaloniane, a Cleveland club, was attended by about 200 persona, consisting of the members of the club and a few invited guests. Cleveland's arrival waa the occasion for loud applause, and all those present re mained standing until the speeches of the evening, which laeted almost an hour, were over. After a brief prelim inary apeech, calling the meeting to or der, the guest of the evening waa intro- duced aa one whose name created en thusiasm, even when mentioned in a Republican meeting. Mr. Cleveland spoke in a pleasant vein about hia early days in Buffalo and hia frienda of that time, wbom he now found among the members of thia club. In the atmosphere of personal friendli ness which pervaded thia occasion, be said tbat he nearly forgot that the or ganization bad political plans and pur poses. He was glad, however, when these plana and purposes recurred to hia mind, that they only added to his grate ful appreciation of tbeir personal kind ness "Therefore," aaid he, "while my . heart ia full of gratitude to tbe friends I ace about me, I cannot for bear the auggestion of my belief that your organization not only demonstrates your personal friendship for an old townsman, but also indicates that you are lully alive to your duty as good citi zens. You know how devoted lam to principles of the Democratic party, and your knowledge of me will, I am sure, acquit me of insincerity when I express tbe opinion tbat tbe result of the pend ing political straggle means more to our country and our people than any in which you or I have ever been engaged. "On one aide the claim ia defiantly and arrogantly announced that tbe functiona of our government may be used directly for the benefit of certain special interests, with, at tbe beat, a very remote regard to tbe welfare of tbe maaeee of tbe people. In oppoeition to this, an appeal ia made to our fellow cit izena lo hold fast to the doctrine that tbeir government ahould, at all times, be administered directly for them, and tbat they ahould not be obliged to receive as their share of the blessings of the free government they maintain, a email portion which may filter through to them in the process of making special beneficiaries rich. In other words, tbe Democratic party is insisting upon an honeat application of the tule tbat government by the people should be government for the people. "It is aa needless as it ia foreign to my purpose to diacuea in detail before those ao thoughtful and intelligent aa my Buffalo frienda the differences be- | tween the political principles and pur poses presented to our people for their < approval. I only desire to assure you that the gratification your personal at tachment affordg ia greatly enhanced by the consciousness tbat it ia the attach ment of those who are thoughtful and patriotic, and by the conviction tbat the support you give in an organized way to your old towneman, cannot cre ate in your minds the least suspicion that such eupport ia in the aid of prim i gea at all inconsistent with yonr high eat duty as American citizens. It only remains foi me to aay that, whatever tbe result of the campaign, I shall al ways remember, ac its moat pleasing in cident, thia occasion and the evidence it furnishes me of the consideration and devotion of my Buffalo frienda." Cleveland was followed by Lieutenant- Governor Bheehan, who epoke of the certainty of New York's going for the Democratic nominees. Then Mayor Biehop, of Buffalo, made a lew remarks, and the rest of the even ing waa spent in social conversation aud handshaking. STEVENSON IN BROOKLYN. Adlul Makes a Great Speech In the City of Churches. Brooklyn, N. V., Oct. 26.—The Dem ocracy of Brooklyn turned out in force tonight and held a great mass meeting at the Academy of Music, where Adlai E. Stevenson, vice presidential candi date, and Congressman Rayner.of Mary land, spoke on the issues of tbe cam paign to over 4000 persons. Stevenson received an ovation as he stepped upon tbe stage. Stevenson said in part: "At the close of President Cleveland's admiuiatration the surplus in the treasury, exclusive of the Bold reserve, waa, in round numbera, 183.000,000. It will be remembered that during tbe latter half of hia administra tion an important question waa: What shall be done with the surplus revenues ? In view of the fact tbat the annual rev enues of tbe government were then $100,000,000 in excess of ita expendi tures, the question was of interest to the American people. What is the condition which now confronta ua at the end three years and a half of Republican administration? On the basis of revenues to the govern ment, as estimated for the present fiecal year, and the liabilities of tbe govern ment, on account of the annual and per manent appropriations for the aame pe riod, there will be a deficit of $52,000, --000. Upon assumption that the law re quiring $48,000,000 for a sinking fund will be complied with, there is no escaping the deficiency I have mentioned. The bankruptcy which now threatens tbe treasury is the result, first, of the Mc- Kinley law, and second, of the lavish ap propriations of the Fifty-first congress." The speaker asserted that the treasury always found its most faithful guardians in tbe Democratic party. Taking up tbe financial plank of the Chicago conven tion, he declared that it voiced bis sentiments, and, passing to the tariff, he denounced the Republican system oi protection to certain industries, by which heavy tariff burdens are laid upon the great mass of the people for the benefit of the favored few individuals who are fortunate enough to have its blessings. ''There undoubt edly has been a wonderful increase in the material wealth of the United States," said he, "but who has it? The answer is found in unequal distribution; in the accumulation of enormous pri vate fortunes; the tendency to pass leg islation in exchange for political favors and in utter disregard of the rights of the tax laden people." The speaker proceeded to give hia views on the force bill, and said the bill, in every line and paragraph, breathed distrust oi the people. "This legisla tion," said he, "is devised in a spirit of hate." Throughout his address Stevenson was repeatedly applauded. THE HOUSE OF MOURNING GLOOMY ASPECT OF THE PRESI unxn.VL mansion.

Washington, Oct. 26. —A cold wind stripped most of the leaves from the trees in the White House grounds, last night, and this morning the aspect of the nature was bare and dreary. There will be no official recognition of Mrs. Ilarrieon'e death, beyond the flags at half-staff on the government buildings. Public business will go on as usual. The body has been laid out in the room in which her death occurred, but this ifternoon it was placed in the casket, »nd taken to the East room where it will remain until after the funeral, iervices. The corpse shows the effects >f tbe wasting illness, but the expression >i the face is placid and kindly, as in life, with traces of suffering.

At a meeting of tbe cabinet this raorsing 4t was decided that all the members, except Secretary Foster, should go to Indianapolis to attend the funeral of Mrs. Harrison. Vice-Presi dent Morton will be one of the pall bearers at tbe services here tomorrow. Becretary Rusk arrived this morning. Secretary Elkins will reach here during the day.

He Emphasizes His Tammany Hall Speech. Wayne MacVeagta the Object of His Profonnd Contempt. A Bitter Denunciation of the Pennsyl vania Renegade and All His Class—Other Political Gossip. By the Associated Press. New York, Oct. 26.—The Herald printa the following Washington dis patch: Senator Hill left for Lynch burg today. While here he waa called on by many leading Democrats. He aaid, in reply to congratulationa upon hia Tammany hall apeech laat night: "I am glad you were pleased, and espe cially with that part iv which I paid my respects to that venomoua class of polit ical hypocrites and mountebank a which seems to crop out in Pennsylva nia, aa well aa in other atatea. I cannot sufficiently emphasize, in words, my contempt for thia class of political rene gades, and, as well, for mal contents within the party. It Mr. MacVeagh were an honeat man, as he now claims to be, he would not have waited for 16 yeara to give utterance to his be>ief that Tilden waa honestly elected in 1876. Knowing that fact, aa he alleges, and suppressing it all theee years, while he was a bene ficiary of tbe party favor, clearly shows to my mind that he ia not of the class of persona tbe Democratic party wants or ahould follow. "The Democratic party, and certainly aound Democrats, do not need a act of egotistical and self-laud ing upstarts to undertake to tell them what they should do. Every democrat had made up hia mind in No vember, 1876, tbat Tilden had carried a majority of the electoral vote, and thia 'MacVeagh waa one of the people who joined in the great political theft. Tbe Democratic party haa prospered without him, and the mess this vain glorious person haa already made, will do the Democratic party more injury than good. Our Dish friends are already in arms, and tbe more he explaina the more he condemns himself. He ahould bo repudiated by tbe party for ita own sell-respect. It does not need him, and should not recognize him by listening to his haranguea. It is not Democracy." TO PLUG JERRY. An Alleged Conspiracy to Murder the Sochless Congressman* Wichita, Kan., Oct. 26.—Jerry Simp son has been warned of a conspiracy to kill him, and henceforth till the end of the campaign he will be accompanied by a body guard. The Democratic and Populist congressional committees for the seventh district are thoroughly die concerted at the wild story which inter cepted letters reveal.

Harper, after unfolding a plan to "plug" Simpson, offered Swivell $2000 to do the job. Ssv i veil ie supposed to be an assumed name, but his let ters have been called for regularly for the past six weeks. These letters were brought to Chairman Breidentbal, the Populist congressional committee, by S E. Cole, of Harper, chairman of the Populist central committee of tbat county, Tuesday morning. He says a friend came to bim Sunday, and after exacting a promise not to reveal hie name, gave Cole three letters, showing the plot as above, which he said he got from an unnamed man while drunk. The following day Cole took them to Wichita, and delivered them with the story, to Chairman Breidenthal. CHANDLER'S TALE OF WOE. The Boston and Blame Road Used for Political Purposes Concord, N. H., Oct. 26.—Senator Chandler tonight sent a dispatch to President McLeod, of the Reading road, saying that two years ago the state of New Hampshire was flooded with $500, --000 for corrupt use by the Democratic party, which money was unlawfully taken by President Frank Jones, of the Boston and Maine road, from the Mav erick National bank of Boston. As an inducement to tbe bank to furnish money, Chandler asserts, $500,000 of Boston and Maine funds were deposited there, and the deposited existed when the bank failed in October, 1891. To day, Chandler says, the Boston and Maine road is again being used as a machine by tbe Democratic party, tie appeals to McLeod as tbe leader of the new railroad combination to put an im mediate stop to "this prostitution to political uses of the powers of tbe Bos ton and Maine road, and make it a non political enterprise."

I aaw a million or two, more or leae, on my way to th building. All aeemed happy and proeperoue. I caw no beggars, met with no raga; everything indicated the.,;" they repreaented a happy people and a phenomenally proaperoue country. And in that building I listened to the ableat Republican apeech I ever heard delivered by Henry Watteraon, of Kentucky. Mr. Watterson ia the ableat Democrat in the country today, and in troduced the free-trade plank in the Chicago platform, yet Watteraon, in the glowing oratory of the couth, deecribed the phenomenal growth and prosperity of the country aince the civil war. It waa a proud picture of a proud people, celebrating a proud event, and calling npon the world to look upon their pros perity." M'KINLEY IN ILLINOIS.

A KNOTTY QUESTION. Oregon Onunty Gierke Id Quandary Over the Kangaroo Ballot. Sausm, Oct. 26.—The county clerks in Oregon are just now puzzled over the Australian ballot law. The resignation of Miller as a Demcoratic elector com plicates matters, since tbe vacancy was filled by the nominating of Pierce, a People's party nominee. The olerks are unable to decide whether to put Pierces name on the ticket in one, two or three places. The chairman of both the Democratic and Republican state committees and the attorney-general agree ihat Pierces name should be on the bollot in a group with the Democrats and Republicans. Others, however, hold that an Pierce is the nominee of neither party separately, hie name must go on the ticket under a group headed Democratic-People's party.
