KAN - KOO, 110 South Spring St. (Opp. Nadeau Hotel.) WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 2, 1802. A CAMPAIGN OF THOUGHT. Grover Cleveland Sizes Up the Situation. He Comments on the Quiet of the Campaign. Hood Is Bound to Result from Sober Deliberation. The Ex-President Makes One of the Most Logical Arguments lie Has Yet Promulgated—Oth er Speakers. By tbe Associated Press. Nkw York, Nov. I.—Grover Cleve land spoke before the Businesp Men's Democratic association tonight in the Lenox lyceum. The audience numbered about 2500 persons, and the boxes were mainly occupied by women. Thomas J. O'Donaghne escorted Mr. Cleveland to the platform, and he received an en thusiastic reception. After bowing an acknowledgement and considerable more cheering, and when some routine business had been transacted, Chairman Simmons introduced the ex-president. A LOGICAL ARGUMENT. Mr. Cleveland said be ventured tbe assertion that never in tbe recollection of any one present had a presidential canvaeß been carried on witb such a lack of noise and excitement, and in sucb an apparent atmosphere of popular thought fulness. "If this ib actually the condi tion," said he, "and our voters are really thorghtful, it should be a cau«e of con gratulation on the part of every Ameri can citizen, for it must be tbafr sober deliberation in the exercise of the right of suffrage is the foundation of our hope for national perpetuity. If we assume that this quiet is attributable to thoughtfulness among the people, there would seem to be no place for fear or misgiving as to the result, on the part of those who support the Democratic principles. These principles were presenttd two years ago to the voters of the country, and received their endorsement by a tre mendous mtijority. Since then the drift of public opinion has been in our direc tion, aud the doctrines opposed to ours have been more than ever discredited. It must be conceded also that the in telligent and disinterested men who have left the ranks of our opponents and joined our standard are exception ally numerous and influential. The fact that with all these things in our favor we are still not absolutely sure of success would be startling if we did not know the desperate aud disreputable methods which confront us. Ou- oppo nents, vanquished hi eveiy aiHuuient worthy of presentation to the reaeon of our countrymen, have appealed to their passions and prejudices through the dis tribution of most infamous lies concern ing the record and action of our party and its candidates. This, however, is not their main reliance, nor iB it our greatest danger. "It is a confession most humiliating to American citizenship that with a cause so thoroughly entrenched in rea son, and commending itself ao clearly to the intelligence of patiiotic American citizens, we daily hear the prediction of Republican success, based upon the ability of that party to purchase the votes of the people; a reflection, it seems to me, that cannot fail to areuae the American conscience to the wickedneßa, as well as the perii, of a debauched suf frage. It ia a plain proposition that our government ia only true to the princi ples upon which it rests, when in its operation it represents the honest and intelligent sentiments of the people. The time has surely come when those who see the beginning of corruption should look beyond it and beneath it, in the endeavor to discover the source of our danger, and the forces which give it its deadly strength. It has its source in the perverßion of our government to the furtherance of limited and special interests, and in the invita tion thus extended to anticipate a con tinuance of governmental favora in com pensation for partiean support. The forces behind it are greed and selfish ness, willing to prostitute the suffrage of the people to pecuniary gain. "This deal between a political party and private enterpriee, by which gov ernmental aid ia exchanged for partisan Bupport, is covered by the pretext oi care for the business interests of the country. While we readily concede the importance of these interests, aud hold that no political party Bhould be un mindful of them or heedlees of their prosperity, we insist that no plea for their promotion eh.ill be used to justify the political methods which endanger the integrity and beneficence of our in stitutions. "It seems to me to be peculiarly fit and proper that the patriotic business men of our country should repudiate the auggeetion that care for the intereEt they have in their keeping can be an excuse for corrupt political practi' ea. They can teach with eapecial authority tbe lesaon that bu.-dness interests are safest under a fair administration ol an honest and just government, represent ing the unbought suffrage of our people. Beyond this, however, our budness men, and all our other American, who love their country, ought to make com mon cause in the effort to turn back the tide which leads to the perversion of the functions of our government, invites the corruption of our voters, and menaces the sure foundation of political virtue." W. C. P. BRECKINRIDGE SPEAKS. As soon ac the applause which fol lowed Cleveland would permit Con gressman Breckinridge of Kentucky waa introduced and eaid, in part: "Tbe election of Cleveland and Stevenson is conceded by everyone by a majority so large, both in the electoral and popular vote, aB to demonetrate that the country has come to the conclusion that the daya of tbe usefulness of the Bepnblican party are over." "It ia almost impossible," he con tinued, "to lay imposts without hurting or helping certain industries. The laws »;f commerce are extra-territorial and cannot be controlled by inter-territorial legislation. It is impossible for a na tion, p.ny more than a man, to live unto itself. Thpre can be no linal settlement of the tariff question on the basis of a high rate of duty." In closing Breckimidge said Cleve land had the heart of Andrew JackHon and the head of Thomas Jefferson. One of the things which made him look for ward with triumph to next Tuesday wbb that it would leave no sorrow in its train. MR. CLEVELAND A PRISONER. Mr. Cleyelnnd remained on the plat form until the close of the meeting. He had great difficulty in getting away, as the building was crowded to its utmost capacity, and everyone on the platform wanted to shake his hand. A large number of those in the hall also jumped to the platform to greet the ex-presi dent. Chairs were upset and people almost trampled on. Cleveland was virtually held a prisoner by his enthusi astic admirers, but at last, by the aid of half a dozen policemen, he escaped to his cab. Mr. Cleveland will make one speech in New Jersey, and probably ono in Delaware, before the election. » — THE RIGHT WILL TRIUMPH. Senator Hill Makes an Able Speech at Schenectady. Schenectady, N. V., Nov. I.—Senator Hill epoke here this evening to a packed house. Heaaid: "In the triumph of 1884 the old war issues passed to the rear, and new iseues were brought to the front. The country then harmonized with and was pacified under the able administration of Grover Cleveland, to the credit of the Democratic party." Senator Hill showed by illustration how the many pay for the few under the present tariff. "The Democracy does not demand free trade," eaid he. "I am not in favor of free trade, but 1 want freer and fairer trada. Revision is what we want, and not destruction of the tariff. The Democrats do not propose to reduce the wages of the workingman. The laboring man heeds high wages, and I am glad the wages in this country are higher than in any other country. We have prospered under the McKinley bill, but not on accouut of it; rather in spite of it." In conclusion Senator Hill spoke of the exciee law and of the new appor tionment, and declared that the Democ racy of New York state was in excel lent condition for a fight. "Either Benjamin Harrison or Grover Cleveland will be elected president of tho United Statea. It ia either party principle or party plnnder. Do your chare, my frienda; do your duty, and the right will triumph." WELL BORN'B ELOQUENCE CAPTIVATES A LAKGK SANTA ANA AIDIKNCE. The Versatile Sau Dleßan Talking Ilia Way Into Congress—Orange Coun ty lJemoc„t« Alurclt.~>£ to Victory. Special to the Herald. Santa Ana, Nov. I.—Spurgecn's hall waß crowded tonight with a throng eager to listen to Hon. Olin Wellborn, the Democratic nominee for congresß from this district. He made the moat elo quent and able addreeH of the campaign, taking aa hia principal Bubject the tariff. He showed plainly that a protective tariff worked an absolute injury to the orange and raisin grower, in that it raised the price of transportation and shut out commerce, thereby preventing the Bending of our products to foreign lande. The apeaker urged the Democrats to stand by their legialative nomineea, Bay ing that the outlook waa bright for the securing of the legislature of thia atate. He ehowed the relation of the tariff to commerce and agriculture, and knocked the Republican theory of protection to the American laborer and farmer sky high. The meeting tonight was undoubtedly the largest of the campaign, and the* elo quent San Diegan made ' many votea. With Hon. R. F. Del Valle to speak Friday night, and the Democrats of thia county all working in the moat perfect harmony, the prospects for a sweeping victory in thia county are most flatter ing. AN UNKNOWN SUICIDE. A Stranger Puts a Bullet In His Head at Stockton. Stockton, Nov. I.—A stranger who had been in town a short timej com mitted suicide tonight by putting a pis tol ball in hia head. He left nothing to diacloee hia identity, but it is supposed he was a hostler who came from Bakerefield, ac he had clippings in hia pockets from Bakerefield paperß. He rented a room in a lodging houße, ard three minutes after entering the shot waa heard. When he was found he waa dead. On hia ahirt were the letters "H. W." A stable keeper says he applied to him for work a few days ago, Raying he was from down couth. He was a middle-aged man; dark hair, with a sprinkling of gray ; wore a mtißtache and a Email dot of beard on his chin. He waa badly ruptured, and probably not able to do hard work. He had only |5 in hia pocket. Ominous Wreckage. ' Chicago, Nov. I.—The achooner John Shaw arrived here today in tow of the John F. Eddy. Both vessels reported a large amount of wreckage off the Muni ton islands. It ia not known that any vessel is loat, but fears are entertained for the steamer G. H. Gelcher, which ia some days overdue at Milwaukee. The Gelcher is a eiater ship to the Western Reserve, which was lost last August. She c«rried a crew of 132 men, waa valued at $200,000, and owned by J. C. Gilchrist and others. An Unprecedented Event. Chicago, Nov. 1. —For the first time in the history of the United Statea, pon tifical high maa was celebrated today by a papal delegate. It was at the All Saints day service of the Italian church of Our Lady of Sorrows, in this city, the home of tbe Servite order of priests. The celebrant was Archbishop SatolU of Rome. GRESHAM IS FOR GROVER. A Much Mooted Controversy Set at Rest. Judge Gresham Will Vote for Cleveland. This Declaration Made Over His Own Signature. The Republican Party lias Failed to Keep Its Promises, Hence Its Ablest Statesmen Are Deserting It. By the Associated Press,] New Yoek, Nov. I.—Don M. Buekin aon, chairman of the national Demo cratic campaign committee, has received copies of the following statement and correspondence through Hon. Biuford Wilson, solicitor of the treasury under Grant: . To the Public: The truth of the statement made by myself and others that Judge Greshani eaid he intended to vote for Cleveland at the ensuing election, being persis tently denied, not only by the Republi can preaf), but also by the national Re publican committee and upon the stump, it is due Judge Gresham and hia fiiends that the truth be known, and I therefore take the responsibility of giv ing to the public his letter of October 27th, addressed to me. (Signed) Bluford Wilson, gkesham's letter. To Hoc. Bluford Wilßon, Springfield, 111. : Dear Major : —I have your letter of the 21st. I did tell you at Springfield, that after matare reflection I intended to vote for Cleveland this fall because I agreed in the main with hia views on the tariff and did not believe in the principles embodied in the McKinley bill. I adhere to that determination, and have said nothing indicating a change of purpose. It is not true that with my knowledge or consent the president was asked for the appointment of me to any office. It is not true that I requested any one to do anything to obtain the Republican nomination for me this year. It is not true that I voted for Cleveland in 188 S. I voted the ttepublican ticket at every presidential election since the party was organized, except in 18C4. when I was not able to go to the polls. The Republicans were pledged to the reduction of the war tariff long before 1888, and during the campaign of that year the pledge was renewed with em phasis, again and again. Instead of keeping that pledge, the McKinley bill was passed, imposing still higher duties. It waa passed in the interest of favored classes, and .10. for the- benefit of tbe whole people. It haa neither enhanced the priceß of farm products nor bene fited labor. Wagea are, and ever will be, regulated by supply and demand. Duties are imposed upon sr.me articles to destroy competition and foster trueta and monopolies. I think you will agree with me that this was an abandonment of the doctrine of moderate incidental protection. Tariff is now the moat important question before tbe people, and what ever others may do, I shall exercise the right of individual judgment and vote according to my own convictions. I think with you, that a Republican can vote for Cleveland without joining the Democratic party. How I eball vote in the luture will depend upon the ques tions at issue. Very truly yours, W. Q Grksiiam. THE JVDSE HAS NOTHING TO BAY. Chicago, Nov. I.— Judge Greeham was seen at hia reaidence tonight by a correapondent of the Associated Press, and told of the giving out of hia letter tonight. "Well, what of it?" he remarked. "Do you intend to take the position outlined in the letter?" "I have nothing to Bay." "The letter is acknowledged by you, then?" "Who gives it out?" asked Judge Gresham. "Don M. Dickinson, in New York." "Well, I have nothing to say about it." "You will neither affirm nor deny that you wrote the letter?" "i have nothing to say, and that ia enough." MATT QUAY'S PROPHECY. Harrison Will Carry Connecticut, Indi ana and Now York. Nkw York, Nov. 1. —Senator Quay had a conference thia morning, with the Republican leadera, and when he waa asked afterwards to give hia view of the situation he said: "I have gone care fully through the details of the labor of the gentlemen managing the Republican campaign, up to the present time, and have canvaeaed with them proposition, for the future. Their adtniniatration ia faultless, and correspondence has satis fied me that the sentiment of the coun try is favorable to a continuance of Re publican rule. Harrison will be re elected. It ia my belief that he will carry New York, Indiana and Connecti cut. The existing conditions are auch that the electoral vote of New York will elect him without Indiana and Connec ticut. Indiana and Connecticut will elect him without New York." FUSION IN OREGON. Three of the Four Democratic Electors Give Way to Populists. Portland, Ore., Nov. I.—Two of the Democratic presidential electors held a conference with National Committee man McKee this afternoon, and as a re sult of the conference, it is understood the two electors will send in their resig nations tomorrow, and the state central committee will fill the vacancies by en dorsing two of the People's party elec tors. One of the Democratic electors resigned a week ago and his place was filled by a Populist, but tbe fourth elector refures to resign. Chairman Murphy of the state central committee said: ''I do not know wheth er the elector! wili withdraw or not. PRICE FIVE CENTS. The stale centra! committee will not ask them to do bo, but I think it advisable for the Democratic electors to withdraw in favor of the Populists. lam satisfied if tne Democratic electors all withdraw Weaver will carry the state by a large majority." The Democrats are divided in opinion as to theadvjdabihty of withdrawing the ticket. ST. WANAMAKER Going to iMiiana to Stir C|> a Little Enthusiasm. Pittsburg, Nov. I.—Postmaster-Gen eral Wanamaker waa in the city today, en route to Indianapolis, going, as he eaid so "stir up a little enthusiasm." He will spend a week making a tour of the principal cities of the state. Speak ing of the prospects he said : "I cay it in all candor that I think the prospects fer a Republican victory are very bright. It is my firm conviction that President Harrison will be re-elected. I also be lieve New York will give him alaiger majority than it did in 1888. I think Indiana is all right. Connecticut, hith erto a doubtful state, I think will give a fair Republican majority." Indians Cannot Vote. Yanktown, S. D , Nov. 1.-Judge E. O. Smith of the circuit court today de cided that Indians dwelling on the res ervation bad no right to vote in the coming election. He based hia decision on the fact that they were residing on ground which is Bubjeet to governmental jurisdiction alone; and aa the state has nothing to do with the Indiana, they cannot vote in it. Foster on the Stamp. jr. Martinsburg, W. Va., Nov. I.—Secre tary Foster of the treasury department delivered a political addrosa here tonight before a larye audience. Hia adaress waa confined almost solely to the tariff and the wildcat currency plank, as ha termed the Democratic plank on the sub ject of currency. McKinley at Utica. Utica, N. V., Nov. I.—The people came from all parts of central New York today to hear Governor McKinley. Every foot of room in the opera house waa taken long before he arrived. He spoke for two and a half hours, devoting hia time mainly to the tariff and money questions. A Disaster ou a Logging Road.. Birmingham, AH., Nov. I.—At Wads wortli, Ala., today, h train on a logging railroad jumped the track at a water tank, knocking the tank down on a car containing a party ol laborers. Fifteen men were hurt, two of whom have since died from their injuries. NO MONKEY BUSINESS. DEMOCRATS EXHORTED TO STAND ON THEIR RIGHTS. The Needless Interference of Federal Officers Jn the. flection* Will Not- Re 1 uleraterl — Blood May Flow* New York, Nov. I.—A poster was to night sent out by the Democratic state committee, all over the state, by tens of thousands. It ia a Bheet almost 2x3 feet, and printed in flaring letters. The heading ia: "Democrats, Enforce the Law!" Attention ia called to the law regarding United States marsbale at tbe polling booths, and to federal super vision of elections. The poster ends with the following: "Democrats, en force the proviaions of the law to the letter, and atar.d on your rights as American citizens. Do cot permit Re publicans to use rooms or buildings within 150 feet of the polling places fop the purpose of bribing voters. You have the power to prevent it, and it is your duty to arrest all such malefac tora." "This circular means," paid a Demo crat, "that there will be no monkey business. lam afraid there may be some shooting on election day if the Republicans attempt any foolishneaa." "Thia means," said a Republican who is actively connected with the prosecu tions brought in the United States court yesterday, "that the Democrats have made up their minds to carry the state by money, fraud and force Talk of the force bill! If the plans which come to our ears are carried out, there should be a force bill in this state now." HOMICIDAL MANIA. An Irish Constable's Terrible Crime In the Constabulary Barracks. Dublin, Nov. I.—A horrible crime waa committed last night in the Royal Irish constabulary barracks at Ballina drina, county Kildare. Ccnatable Pil kington seized, it ia supposed, with a sudden fit of inaanity, entered the Bed room where Sergeant Logan and wife were sleeping and shot them both with a revolver,, killing both instantly. The madman then went to a room where Logan's children were sleeping, and at tacking them left them for dead. Two were found dead, with their heads crushed in, and three were fatally in jured; the remaining two were seriously hurt. I'ilkingtou then tried to burn the barracks, but the alarm spread, and finding himself diacovered, he com mitted suicide. The crime is ascribed to no motive, and its horrible character points to nothing but a eudden attack of homicidal mania. The Federal liw Paramount. Washington, Nov. I.—The general effect of a circular issued today by At torney-General Miller to United States marshals, supervisors and attorneys, is that he holds that the federal election law is paramount in all cases where the state law conflicts with it; that it is in force whenever a representative of con gress is to be voted for, and the officers to whom the circular is ditected must be governed accordingly. A Long Drought Broken. Memphis, Tenn.,Nov. I.—The drought of eight weeks which parched thia sec tion, was broken last night, and copious rains continue falling.
