SCRANTON, PA., WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1894. TWO CENTS A COPY. HON. TOM REEDAT CHICAGO Delivers a Kimjini Speech to the Men y at the Stock Yards. FALSE THEOKY OP FKEE TRADE Cheap English Goods and Ugh American Wages Among the Impossibilities. Docs Not Think That a Southern Minority Should Rule the North. By the United Press. Chicago, Oct. 23. Precisely at 12 o'clock today Hon. Thomas B. Reed and the small party accompanying him reached the Union Stock Yards and were driven to the Exchange building, In front of which a pine board platform had been erected. Surrounding the plutform was a crowd of at least 2,000, composed of stockmen, cattle herders, yardmen and clerks, who cheered the man from Maine on his rising to address them. In the course of his address, Mr. Reed said: Our southern Democratic masters have a beautiful theory. They said we are prosperous, but let us be better off. We will keep all we have and then go and buy some English, goods and be happy. They don't think that buying English goods does not employ American lubor. They thought they could have cheap English goods and high American wages to gether. I have said that the southern Democrats are in charge. If southern Democrats are in the majority let them rule. But I don't want to see nlnety Beven fellowB make themselves supe rior to one hundred and one. Now, what Is a tariff? It is something which concerns the business of this en tire community. It enters Into your homes and business everywhere. A tariff bill ought to be made open and above toard. How was the Wilson bill made? It was made up In a room shut off from ev erybody. They said to everybody, 'Take your doBe.' I don't believe that the re sult will be satisfactory to the country, and now they, themselves, are not satis fled and they intend to tear It to pieces and keep this country stirred up for the next few years. At the conclusion of his speech Mr. Reed was escorted to his carriage and driven to Packlngtown, where he vis ited the big packing houses. Mr. Reed left for Minneapolis early this evening. OUTLOOK IN THE SOUTH. Republicans Hove a Good Fighting Chance If Elections Are l air. Special to the Scranton Tribune. Washington, Oct (23. During the next two weeks there will be a good deal of attention paid by the officials of both committees to the condition of affairs In states south of Mason and Dixon's line. The .Idea of breaking the "Solid South" has never been a very encouraging one to the Republi cans, but the conditions are such this full that the only thing going to pre vent an Increase In the Republican rep resentation from southern states will be a recourse to the long-established custom of counting out any man who has fairly defeated a Democratic can didate. If a fair count can be secured In Vir ginia there Is not the slightest doubt of at least two Republicans being elected from that state. There are four dis tricts In Alabama that present a very Interesting condition, and one that is very encouraging to the Republicans. They are the Fourth, Fifth, Seventh and Ninth. In these districts the Kolb ltes, Republicans and Populists have combined, and the Democrats are very much alarmed over the situation. In Maryland all reports Indicate the suc cess of the Republican candidates in the Fifth and Sixth districts. Some very heavy work will be put Jn during the next two weeks In Indi ana, Illllnols, Wisconsin and Kansas. In the latter state the Populists are endeavoring by all possible schemes of fraud to retain their power, but reports received here Indicate that they will do well If they succeed in electing one member. This will be Jerry Simpson, of Medicine Lodge, and even in his district the (Republicans are feeling confident of success. SIGNIFICANT STRAWS. Bering All Over New York Is in Favor of Morton. By the United Press. Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 23. Bookmaker Kinney, of Newark, has arrived, bring ing with him an election betting boom. Kinney is a Democrat, but he lays his . money on his Judgment. He has an nounced that he was willing to bet even on Morton, and refused to take the other end of it. He got one bet of $500 even with Jimmy Buckley. He offered to lay $1,000 to $700 on Morton, but no one has taken him. Smithy Eggloston last night laid $1,000 to $700 on Morton, and Is offering more at the same odds. Joe Slegfrles has been betting on 11111 even, but he has mnde no offers since he learned of Kinney's offer. A Blnghamton special says the bet ting In that vicinity Is 2 to 1 on Morton, but no large wagers- have been laid.

Two men will be at each polling place and these will prosecute any person at tempting to vote illegally. Prizes will be given to those securing convictions of such offenders, and heavy rewards have already been offered for the detec tion of any registering or voting Illegal ly.

Senator Hill is trying to shake off the Maynard Incubus by claiming he wasn't responsible for Maynard's renomlnation. Nathan Straus has sent his brother, Isador, to Buzzard's bay, to get Grover's opinion of Hill's shabby treatment of him. Betting at Buffalo on the coming New York election Is decidedly In favor of Ivi P. Morton. The odds on him range from 10 to 9 and 10 to 6. Objector Holman's campaign for re-election to congress is seriously objected to by his Indiana eonc'Jtuents and It looks now as if he would ue defeated. It Ib said Wllllnm L. Wilson is disap pointed at the smull subscriptions to his campaign fund wade by the New York im porters for whom he did so much. Congressman Tom L. Johnson, Demo crat, of Cleveland, Is chnrged with colon izing voters to secure his re-election. He offers a reward of $500 to anyone prov ing It. Wllllnm L. Wilson's failure to procure an appropriation for slacking the Monon gahela river between Morgantown place and Falrmount will probably lose him bis seat In congress.

Speaking at Charlestown, W. Va,, Gov ernor McKlnley said: "It Is better for the Democrats who believe in the protection of American homes to be regarded as traitors to their party rather than as traitors to the best and most sacred inter ests of the country. It has been charged hat the Republican' tariff bill was full of mistakes, but they were In the Interest of the masses, while of the 690 mistakes the Democrats had themselves discovered In thetr-new bill not one was in favor of the people." i EUROPEflNSfflUST KEEP OFF Japan Will Settle Her Own Differ ences with the Chinese, .

PAY ENOUGH Some people are too anxious to fare When buying a watch, thinking that a cheap watch will do as well as a good one, and that all the difference In watches Is the price. May be that it required a moral effort on your part to pay us $10 for a plain looking but honest timekeeper, When somebody else generally offers you a gold watch for J2.50 and just for good ness sake throws In a gold chain and charm. Of course It Is all a "tame schwlndle," as the Jew said when he went up in the balloon and couldn't find the sti ver lining of the cloud. It happens every now and then that a person sends olT for a gold watch, gets It, and then loses faith In watches and humanity for ever and ever. We think it would pay you to call on us and Bee If we have what you want, and If we can't suit you at all out of a large stock of watches, why It Is time enough then to send out of town for a $2.04 gold watch.
