FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 28, 1892. THEY FIGHT MIT GROVER. German-Americans Enlisted in Cleveland's Army. The Ex-President Addresses a Meeting; of Teutons. Carl Schurz Preaches Democracy to His Countrymen. Senator Hill Performing Yeoman Service on the Stump - Stevenson in the Land of Steady Habit*. By the Associated Frees. New York, Oct. 27.—The Gerruan- American Cleveland union held a great mass meeting tonight at Cooper Union, the large hall being packed with people and nearly aa many more being unable to gain admittance. Enthusiasm was at a white heat throughout the proceed ings, tumultuous applause greeting Grover Cleveland, Carl Schurz, Oswald Ottendorfer and others. William Stein way was introduced as chairman, and spoke at some length in denunciation of the McKinley law. He then introduced Cleveland as "a gentleman known, hon ored, revered and beloved, not alone in America, but the wide world over." Again the audience broke looee and shouted itself hoirse in greeting the ex president. After dwelling upon the duties of for eign-born citizens, Cleveland said: "If we are to be fellows in our citizenship, this citizenship is only realized when we enjoy in an equal and just manner the advantages of our citizenship. At tbe present time we find a political party soliciting the suffrages of our people in support of the doctrine that his fellow ship in our citizenship is seemed when the prosperity of certain especial inter ests is favored in the making and execu tion of our laws, and is made a direct charge upon the industry of thoee not within the circle of the governmental partiality. As the result of the success ful assertion of this doctrine, we find enormous unearned fortunes in the hands of a few individuals, while those wbo in the unequal race patiently rely upon personal thrift and sturdy individ ual effort are far in the rear. "I interpret the organization and ac tivity of the German-American union as protesting against the violation of the rights of its members in this fellowship, and I conceive this demonstration to be a revolt against tbe mockery of calling those our fellow-citizens who are de prived of equal participation in the ad vantages promised under free American institutions. i "The remedy for unfair lueqtutf > tes in the distribution of the benefits of our ! American citizenship is in the hands of tbe voters of the land, and if there has been a departure from the lights which should guide the operations of our gov ernment, it is for the people to demand a return to safe channels. "Let me warn you, in closing, that the struggle to secure a justification of false methods and a dislodgment of selfish advantages, is not an easy one. The at tempts to cajole our voters, successful in the past, are still continued, and bribery and corruotion are still in vogue. It is only by intelligent argument, con stant endeavor and unremitting vigil ance that we shall recover tbe just and equal share of benefits which belongs to us as American fellow-citizens." Cleveland was repeatedly and loudly applauded at frequent intervals during his remarks. Carl Schurz followed Cleveland, He was greeted with great applause and spoke in German, on the issues of the campaign. He said in part that never before in tbe history of American politics has so immense a corruption fund appeared as tbe Republican party is now using, and never has its purpose been so nakedly revealed. It is ridicu lous for the Republicans to raise tbe cry that the Democrats do the same thing. The Democratic campaign management is highly rejoiced when it raises money enough to pay office rent, clerk hire, printing bills and other necessary expenses. Other speeches by local orators con cluded the great demonstration. Mean while speakers on two stands in front of the building addressed several thousand German citizens who were unable to gain entrance to tbe hall. «. . WALL STREET DEMOCRATS. New York Business Men Enthusiastic for Cleve and Steve. New Yobe, Oct. 27.—At the foot of the Washington statue, at the entrance r the sub-treasury building, Wall street, number of New York business men enunciated the principles of the Demo cratic party thiß afternoon to a throng that blockaded the streets for half a block around. It was a meeting of the Cleve land and Stevenson Business Men's club, and from the vociferous cheering and energetic swinging of hats and hand kerchiefs, it embodied a vast amount of real enthusiasm. The crowd was largely made up from men who traffic in grain, produce and stocks in Wall Btreet, and their employes. Congressman Harter. ex-Congressman Russell, ex-Governor Waller and others spoke. STEVENSON'S SPEECHES. Adlai Doing Good Work ln New York and Connecticut. New Yore, Oct. 27.—Adlai E. Steven son made a brief address to the Dry Goods Democratic club this afternoon. Afterwards he took part in general handshaking. His speech was devoted to the force bill. He said he was much encouraged at the outlook, as he ob served it, in the south. Stamford, Conn., Oct. 27.—Adlai E. Stevenson arrived here from New York this evening and addressed a great crowd at the town hall. Republican Tariff Thunder. Nbw York, Oct. 27—The American Protective Tariff league recently sent letters to persons in central industries which, it is claimed, have been estab lißhed or increased by tbe McKinley tariff, asking information about the number of persons employed, the char acter of tbe products, etc. The Ameri can Economist will tomorrow print many replies. Taken together tbey show that 37,386 persons found employ ment in the industries referred to, while the increased capital employed amounts to $40,499,050. The reports, it is said, are incomplete, and tbe Ameri can Economist claims that about 75,000 persons are now employed in industries actually established or increased by the new tariff, HUGHES OUT ON BAIL. An Attempt to Make Political Capital of Labor Trouble!. Rochester, N. V., Oct. 27.—Master Workman James Hughes of the Clothing Cutters' union, who has deter mined' to take his case to the court of appeals and who has been re leased from custody on $5000 bail, today made a statement explaining his change of front. He says he was willing to lie in jail even until after the election, be lieving Governor Flower would respect the wishes of the organized wage work ers of New York and extend executive clemency to him, as he deserved. Night before last, however, Sheriff Davey came to him and told him that the Monroe county Democrats had raised so much opposition, that he would not be al lowed to let Hughes see any more of his friends, and should have to treat bim as an ordinary malefactor. Hughes says this incensed bim, and he ordered his counsel to make an application for ap peal and bail, which was done. He is sorry to think the Democratic managers in Monroe county forced him into this extreme position, but in taking it be iB satisfied he took tbe only course left him, to justly rebel against any oppression or contemptible means being used by any body, be they Democrats or Republicans. Sheriff Davey told bim, be asserts, that tbe Democratic managers would com plain to Governor Flower and attempt to have bis commission as sheriff re voked because he was courteous enough to show Hugheß the consideration he deserved. HILL WHOOPING IT UP. The Senator Addreaaes Large Crowd* at Lynchburg, Va. Lynchburg, Va., Oct. 27.—Senator David B. Hill of New York talked Democracy and reform to an admiring multitude in thia city, thia afternoon and thia evening. He waa at the In duatrial Society fair in the afternoon, and talked to an immenae gathering of workingmen and farmers. Thia evening he was. the center of attraction at a Democratic rally. In hia speech tonight, Sen ator Hill, after dealing at length with tbe tariff and other questions, made a plea for tbe return of the third party men to the Democratic party. They agreed with the Demo crats, he said, in opposition to high tariff, to Ihti centralization oi power la the general government, and in main upon the great questions of currency. He bad no word of censure for those who went honestly into that party, but the currency question cannot be cettled sat isfactorily until the Democratic party shall be restored to power. Votes for the third party, aaid he, are thrown away. A SAN FRANCISCO SENSATION. The Committee of Safety to Stand Guard Over the Elections. San Francisco, Oct. 27.—The people of this city were startled tonight by reading the following advertisement in an evening paper: ATTENTION !—THE EXECUTIVE COM mlttee of the committee of safety will meet Saturday evening at S o'clock.

D., Oct. 27.—Before the su preme court today, a case was argued wherein the Prohibition party leaders asked a writ of mandamus to compel the secretary of state to place the names of their candidates on the official bal lots, the secretary having refused, be cause the certificates of nomination were irregularly filed. An opinion was rendered this evening, sustaining the secretary. The present indications are that in about 30 out of about 50 coun ties in South Dakota, tbe Democrats and Populists will fuse. Possible Fusion in Nebraska. Omaha, Neb., Oct. 27.—Van Wyck, Populist candidate for governor, and Chairman Blake and Secretary Ptrtb, of tbe Btate committee of tbe People's party, bad a conference with the Demo cratic state committee today, which lasted until midnight.

Many Distinguished People Attend the Obsequies. Magnificent Floral Among Them a Wreath from Queen Victoria—A Touching Incident. By the Associated Press. Washington, Oct. 27.—Funeral ser vices over the remains of Mrs. Harrison occurred in the east room of tho White House thiß morning at 10 o'clock, in the presence of the family, immediate friends and many notable persons. Revs. Hamlin and Bartlett officiated at tbe services, which lasted three-quarters of an hour. The remains were then conveyed to tbe Pennsylvania depot and left for Indianapolis at 11:30 o'clock. The services were very simple, but beautiful and impressive. The casket was set in the middle of the east room, and chairs were ranged about it in a semi-circle. At the head and foot stood large palms, reaching almost to the ceiling. Other palms stood in embras ures, windows and other points about tbe room, being about the only change from the ordinary appearance oi the room, except THE FLORAL OFFERINGS. These were very numerous and beau tiful. They were grouped about tbe casket, and there were so many of them as to give the appearance of the casket resting lightly on them as a pedestal. Among tbe many who sent flowers were the members of the cabinet, the diplo matic corps, Mrs. Morton, Mrs. White law Reid, the wives of the cabinet min isters, Mrs. George Gould, the Daugh ters of the American Revolution, tbe Ladies' Mount Vernon association, the ladies of the treasury department, and tbe Republican state Central committee of California. Mr. Herbert, charge d'affaires of the British legation, on behalf of Queen Victoria, presented a large wreath of roses, orchids and chrysanthemums. Seats were reserved near the casket for the members of the family, the members of the cabinet and members of the supreme court. Among the early arrivals were ex-Secretary Blame, wile and daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. White .'.aw Reid. The members of the diplo matic corps were also early in their seats. At 10 o'clock the seats were all occupied and the room completely filled, many standing along the walls and in the adjacent rooms and corridors. A TOUCHING INCIDENT. In the Green room, adjoining the East room, the boys of St. John's Episcopal chnrch were stationed. Tbe reason for adding this Episcopal feature to tbe Presbyterian service was touching. At the funeral of Mrs. Secretary Tracy, two yeais ago, Mrs. Harrison was so much struck by the singing by tbe Episcopal choir of the hymn, Lead, Kindly Light, that she caused it to be sung in the White Houae nearly every Sunday. Since it had become so dear to her it was decided to have it sung at the ser vice. At 10 o'clock the vice-president and members of the cabinet, as honorary pall-bearers, entered the room, followed by tbe members of the afflicted family. Tbe audience were awaiting their en trance with bowed heads. SIMPLE CEREMONIALS. When tbe family were seated, Rev. Dr. Hamlin, the president's pastor, opened the service by reading a selec tion from the psalms and other scrip ture. Then Rev. Dr. Bartlett, formerly Mrs. Harrison's pastor in Indianapolie took up the service, reading a number of passages from the Old and New Testament. The choir then chanted I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, A prayer by Dr. Hamlin followed, then the choir sang Lead, Kindly Light. This closed the simple service. THE JOURNEY BEGUN. The undertaker entered and removed the flowers from around the casket. The body-bearers, selected from among the houae servants, took their places and, preceded by tbe clergymen and honora ry pall bearers, bore the body to the hearae standing under the porte-cochere with two black horses attached. Then, followed by carriages conveying the members of the party to accompany tbe remains to Indianapolis, the cortege moved out and passed slowly to the Pennsylvania depot, where the casket was transferred to a car, together with the floral tributes accompanying it. The party took seats in the train, and at 11:40 the train pulled out on its sorrow ful journey. CROWDS ALONG THE ROUTE. Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 27.—Mrs. Harri son's funeral train arrived here at 10:40 tonight. On the run from Washington, today, large crowds gathered at all the stopping pointa, who silently viewed the train aa it stopped at the station. At thia city aeveral hundred people gathered at tbe depot and admired tbe beautiful flowers in the funeral car. ARRANGEMENTS AT INDIANAPOLIS. Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 27.—The ar rangementa for Mra.

PRICE FIVE CENTS. THE COAST LINK. Contractors Begin Work on the Bis Tunnels. San Francisco, Oct. 27.—Camps have been established and work actually been commenced on the connecting link of the Coaßt road, which is to complete the second transcontinental line into this city, via Los Angeles and Saugus, con troled by the Southern Pacific company. The contract was let to George Btone & Co. of this city for tbe first 16 miles from Santa Margarita south to San Luis Obis po, on October 18th. This is the very heaviest work, and involves the outlay of $1,500,000. The entire distance from Santa Margarita to the southern extrem ity of tbe Coast division, down to El wood on the Ventura division, via San Luis Obispo, is 128 miles, and from Santa Margarita to San Luis Obispo, is 16 miles. Iv the latter Bhort section there are no lees than seven tunnels, aggregating 8000 feet in length, which must be cut through solid rock. The largest tunnel at the summit of the coast range will be 3700 feet long, and commences three miles south of Santa Margarita. It ia for thiß heavy tunneling that the largest outlay will be required. When once the tunnelß are finished the remaining 112 miles will be easily and rapidly finished, so that nothing will be done on that part of the work until the drilling of the mountains is nearly lompleted. It is estimated that about 15 months will be required to carry out tbe contract. In the whole 16 miles there are no bridges, and the culverts have all been put in by the Southern Pacific comDany. As the road is to be used for overland travel it will be constructed as strongly as possi ble, and 70 pound steel rails will be used. SHOT IN THE NECK. A Young Lady Wounded by an Indian- Near Santa Barbara. Santa Barrara, Oct. 27.—A yeung lady named Miss Havens, living at Ca thedral Oaks, was shot last night through the neck by an Indian named Martinez, a brother of an Indian who committed suicide several days ago. Martinez claimed that Miss Havens wae instrumental in bia brother's death. During a row that followed, Martinez drew a rifle on Havens, and Miss yens stepped between, receiving the ball in the muscle of the neck. The wound is not considered dangerous.

Nearly 100 armed men have been scouring the hills since daylight in search of Martinez or Orzeras, which is his proper name.

He started out yesterday on a tear. Before the Havens shooting ho met another young.L»d*.ft«,%^ ( and accused her of having caiisecThis brother's death, drawing a knife at the same time.

The girl is • more dangerously hurt than at first reported, and blood poisoning may set in. THE SONTAO TRIAL. Nearly All the Testimony for the Prose cution In.
