HARRISON AT RICHMOND. He Addresses an Audience of Thousand People in the Auditorium. Five Richmond. Vu., Oct. a. Ex-President Benjamin Harrison .addressed a bout 5,nu0 people tonight at the Audi loiiiim building on the exposition grounds. Of the number named about one half were colored people. In addressing his audience Gen. Har rison said: Virginia is not the enemies' country to me. It is my uncestors' home and the citizens are my fellow-citizens. 1 do be lieve linn Virginia has us large a num ber of great and good men under the ground as any other slule in the I'nioti. Hut 1 have never said that you have not quite as many good men above ground lis any other stale. There was a time when the north and south Wire arrayed against each other. That lime is to mm now only u memorv, we are again one united, lovul people. Not onlv the general citizenship, but 'he coiifcihnite soldiers of the south have done their bravest to establish a govern ment to which they had given their hearts und allegiance and stand now for the old flag ol' Washington, if It should ever lie the sad fate or this country to be again Involved In war. if any .foreign power tramples that II a g. or invades our shores, Indiana ami Virginia will charge together against the enemy and then shall slav thai onslaught. The memory of Gettys burg and Appomattox will make it impos sible for a regiment of either stale 10 stop outside or the breastwork of the enemy. The speaker then said that they were there as citizens of a I'nlon established by our fori fathers ami w ere there to claim for themselves those rights which are left to Ihe suites when Ihe federal constitu 1 ion was organized. The wisdom of men, he said, never de vised a system so perfect as that system which our forefathers formed, by which they committeeil to the national ' govern ment all national concerns and referred to the stale governments all local con cerns. 1 regret to notice that in this cum' paign an assault Is made upon on what I believe to be Ihe Just constitutional pow ers of the national government. The in cident mil of which this grows is the out come of the great Chicago riot. DHKIANCH OF TICK LAW. There Is dellatice or law, both stale and national. Ill great organized bodies, or who acting individually upon a mad Impulse went through the streets of Chicago with tire and sword, destroying property, inter rupting ail' railroad communications. Slopping the pussage of Culled States mail, and the progress of commerce be tween the states. This hud Us origin In a railroad strike, but I believe these acts or violence were largely. if not w holly, the acts of Irresponsible and desperate men who marched under Ihe red Hag of anurciiy. The president of tile I'niled States. Mr. Cleveland. Democrat, felt It to be Ills duty under the constitution to use the force's of the Culled States to open the way for the public mails and for interstate com merce, it was a.s plainly his duty to do so us any duty that ever develuped upon a public official. Does Virginia consent, does she mean to express her consent this fall that the mails In Virginia may be stopped by a mob In any city of our state and their delivery interrupted? Does Vir ginia mean to say at tint fall election tint she is content in the progress of her stale that mall on the way to another slate may be stopped by an irresponsible mob ill any city In the land? The president of the V'niled States is sworn to execute the laws and Is made commander and chief of (lie army and navy of the l ulled Slates that he tnuy have suitable instruments with which to execute them. Without unnecessary vio lence, with a restraint that was remark, able, ihe troops of the Culled States were simply used to push out of the way these rioters who obstructed the progress of the mails and of Interstate commerce. The courts of the t'llltcil States were appealed to and thai right is familiar to every lawyer and every citizen, the right of injunctions by which the courts restrain lawless conspiracies to oppose the law and was used by the Circuit courts or the Culled Slates. It is essential to the life of the Judiciary that It should have power of punishing those who Insult its Judges or disobey Its orders. These courts proceed ed with the most strict conformity to law. They proceeded upon lines famillur lo the profession and judicial history, and yet, the president who executed the law by using the forces of the Culled Stales and the courts that used their powers to anticipate and prevent violation of law, are both denounced by the Chicago plat form. Continuing the speaker said that our communities everywhere rested upon the law and ita enforcement for their security and that of all sections the tooth be more Jealous to see the nower oiVhe law preserved and Virginia es- lany, the state that save to the ited States that Rreat chief justice, rshall. he speaker then declared that Sena- Gantet had introduced and had torn- f (Of passed a resolution In the senate en dorsing the act of President Cleveland and yet he had presided over a conven tion which denounced that very act. Continuing on this subject, Mr. Har rison said: Have you ever heard anything from the candidate of the Chicaito convention? Has he ever said in any speech he has made that If he should be chosen president of the I'nlteil States that he would execute the law as .lr. Cleveland executed It? He hps not said it, but he has accepted every word and sentence of thp Chicago convention and Is there In effect pledged that If he should be president and in New York or Chicago or any other great center of population, a mob should lift the red flag of anarchy and stay the progress of your mulls, he would not in terfere until the governor of the state asked him to. Citizens of Virginia, what ever may have been your party altlllutions, are you prepared for that? The remainder of Mr. Harrison's speech was devoted to the discussion of the linanciul question in its various phases.

Florida Will Elect State Officers Today and Georgia TomorrowThe Demo crats Claim Both States. Atlanta. Oa., Oct. fi. Two iniporlunl slate elections will take place in the houili during the present week. To morrow Flurldu will elect state oflicers, uml on Wednesday Georgia will choose a governor and other otllcials. Roth events w ill be watched with great in terest in nil parts of the country, as the result may be taken as an Indication of whether or not I be solid south can be broken In the November cyclone. In Florida a ujuvernor, one Justice of the supreme court, alt the members of the house of representatives) and six teen iuemliersi of the senate ure to be chosen. In addition, county otllcials are also to be elected. There are three complete state tickets ill the Held Democratic. Republican and Populist. Fur the chief magistracy the Demo cratic candidate is former Governor W. D. Hloxhni; the Republican nominee U- K. R. Uunby, und the Populists have named Stule Senator A. W. Weeks. That the Deinocrullc ticket will be elected is conceded by the leaders of each party, the only difference being; as lo the size of the plurality. TICK (JKOItGIA ELECTION. Georgia's state eloctiun is important, from the fuct that it is the boast of the Democratic leaders that they will roll up for their ticket a majority which will answer that which came from Maine. There Is every reason to believe that from a conservative and careful estimute gathered from reports from each county in the state, Governor At kinson will receive at least 40,000 plur ality over Seaborn A. Wright, who Is the' Populist and Prohibition nominee. Two years ago Governor Atkinson had a plurality of a little over 24.000. This year Georgia, for the first time, acts under a general registration law. REPUBLICAN GAINS. lie turns from Connecticut Towns Show it Marked Increase. Hartford. Conn.. Geo. 5. Town elec tions wore held in all the 168 towns In the statu with the exceptions of Hart ford'. New Haven, Hritlgeport, Ansonia. Derby and Natigatuck. Returns show that the Republicans have made large gains over a year ago, the Republicans having nearly doubled their number of towns from 1MW. In Hartford county in 1 sit.", the towns stood: Reoubllcun IT: Democrats 4; divided 7. Returns show that the Republicans have gained three tow ns and the Dem ocrats have lost one, Ave being divided. Middlesex county complete shows 12 liepuhlicun towns against eight last year. In two towns, "National Demo cratic" tickets- were voted for. It is probable that the complete returns will show that the Republicans have gained at least fifteen towns. CANDIDATES RESIGN. Popul kt ot Illinois Are Heady to Nominate a I'tisiou Ticket. Springtleld. III. Oct. 5. Chairman Taubeneck. of the Peoples party, state central conimliiee , has received the resignations of the candidates of that party for congress and legislature in the territory composing the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth districts. Tlie Democratic candidates for the same olliccs iii that territory will hand in their resignations. Ruth parties will then get together and nominate a fusion ticket, liy these means the Pop ulists hope to secure a fusion man as u successor to Senator John M. Palmer in the Culled States senate. POLLING OF MICHIGAN. Kcpabliciiu Stale Committee Predicts Sound Motley's Victory. ' Detroit. Oct. ft. The Republican state central committee claims that McKiu ley will carry Michigan by a plurality of between iii.hon and 45.001). This pre diction is the result of u careful poll of the state.

FRANTIC OVATION TO THE RUSSIANS Immense Crowds Greet the Ciar and Cxarina In France. GREAT GATHERING AT CHERBOURG Alter a Stormy Voyage the Polar Star Auchor in Culm Sena and the Iiu pcrial Passengers Are Received with Crent Enthusiasm by the French Citizen. Cherbourg, Oct. D. The Cznr nnd Czurinu arrived here from Portsmouth, England, at 2 o'clock this afternoon and were given a frantic ovation by the immense crowds that hud assembled near the Bitssln du Commerce, the Avant port, and the quays in thut vi cinity. Tile weather was stormy throughout Ihe night and early this morning, uml rain was falling heavily. This hud u bad effect on the many beautiful deco rations, but did not dampen the en thusiasm of the mull It tide, which, armed . with umbrellas, eurly sought points of vantage from which they could not be driven by stress of weath er. Along the route from the Quay do Arsenal, which fronts the eastern side of the Avant port to the railway sta tion, were numberless Venetian masts, which presented a handsome sight lust night, but which this morning looked somewhat bedraggled after having been exposed to the storm. Many of them were blown tbtwn by a heavy squall which struck during the night, und a large force of workmen were put at work early to replace them as fur us possible. Ail night long thousands of persons of ail ages and conditions docked into the town from all parts of the interior and the I ruins arriving this morning brought thousands more. The streets were literally packed, but the crowds were orderly und good nut tired. Every one appeared to be anxious to show frietidship for the great rally of France and us the hour approached that hud been Hxed for the Czar's arrival, fev erish expectancy could be seen on the faces of thousands that were close to the water front. The eastern and west ern jetties utid the glairs at the en trance to the Avant port were bltick with humanity. None but favored Indi viduals, however, were allowed on these places for from them the first and best views of the approaching naval pro cession could be seen, and the yacht Polar Star, bearing the Czar and Czar ina and their suites passed up to the Quai de L'Anrien arsenal, through the two Jetties. Large numbers of gen darmes were everywhere placed, but they had no difficulty in keeping order as the crowds were perfectly tractible. STIFF GALE WAS BLOWING. A stiff gale was blowing outside fhe harbor all the morning and a very high sea was running, which triade the cross ing of the channel a most unpleasant experience for those not used to sea voyages. It was recalled that the Czar was a very good sailor, he having made a voyage almost around the world while he was Czarevitch, but much sym pathy was expressed for the Czarina, whu, In addition to being in delicate health is unused to sea voyages. A storm signal was Hying on the break water, and altogether the weather con ditions were most inauspicious. At 8 o'clock the French Northern squudron left the Roadsted and headed across the chunnel fur the purpose of meeting the Russian yachts and Hrit ish warships accompanying them. The squadron was reinforced by the ships sent from Rochefort and Brest. They all proceeded to about the middle of the channel, where they drew up in line and heralded the coming of the Czar. At about noon signals on the break water announced that the Polar Star had been sighted, and the pent-up en thusiasm of the crowd broke forth In a mighty cheer. Prior to this, however, the crowd knew the yacht was ap proaching, for there had been faintly heard the deep booming of the guns from the French and Dritish warships as they met off shore. As the vessels approached the break water the Polar Star was seen to be making heavy weather of it, sometimes pitching almost bows tinder. Despite this, as the yacht passed into the har bor past the breakwater the Czar was seen standing on the bridge wrapped In a storm proof cloak. . AND THE BANDS PLAYED. As the Polar Star passed in the forts on the breakwater thundered forth an imperial salute and the crowds ashore broke forth In wild cheering. The war ships passed ahead of the yacht in the harbor und ranged themselves Into two lines, through which the Polar Stur steatned slow ly to the Quai de L'Anclen arsenal followed by the Standard. As the Polar Star passed the bunds on French warships played the Russian national anthem. The Russian Stand ard was Hying at the heads of their foremusts, and as It was broken out an Imperial salute was tired. On the yttal awaiting the coming of their majesties were President Fame, attired In evening dress, with the rib bon of the Legion of Honor. There were also present M. Chamel Laeoiir, president of the senate; M. Hrisson, president of the-Chamber of Deputies; M. Meltne, president of the council of ministers and minister of agriculture; mul M. Hunotaux, minister of foreign uM'uirs, und a large number of high naval and military oflicers. M. Meline wore the green decorations on the Mer lt Agrlcoie. M. Hauutaux was attired In diplomatic uniform. Willi the red decoration of the Russian order of St. Andrew. Huron De Mohrenheiin. Russian am bassador to Frunce. und Count Luniies de Moiitebello. French ambassador to Russia; Admiral Bernard, minister of marine, with his newly obtained stur ol the Legion of Honor, and the stuff appointed to attend the Czar and Czur lnu while they are In France, were ulso present. DIFFICULTY IN LANDING. Owing to high wind and rough water considerable difllculty was experienced In getting the Polur Star alongside the quay. During the muuoeuveriug to get her in position for the landing of her august passengers Ihe vast multitude in the vicinity were perfectly quiet, but when the gangway was finally In posi tion and the Czarina stepped on to the quay followed almost immediately af ter by the Czar, shouts of "Long live tlie Czar," "Long live Russlu," rent the air and were repeated again and again. Hats, handkerchiefs und umbrellas were waved In the air and the crowd shouted Itself hourse in the enthusiasm of Its welcome to the great friend of France. The rooms In the arsenal, adjoining the landing place, that hud been pre pared for the reception of their ma jesties, were most handsomely decorat ed. Shortly: after the Imperial eouale had landed the sun broke through the clouds and this was taken as a happy augury. The Czar and Czarina had a short rest before 6 o'clock, at which hour a magnificent banquet was spread In the dining room. It was the original intention thut the Imperial visitors should traverse the streets of the city, but the unpleasant state of the weather forbade this and at 8 o'clock the Czarina and their suites boarded the special train that was waiting them at the arsenal, a trade having been specially laid there to and from the railway station, and start ed for Paris. President Faure, the min isters and other high mtlclals proceed ed for Paris on the train on which they traveled to Cherbourg last night. Taken altogether the reception tu the imperial visitors here wus one long to lie remembered, and must have im pressed the Czar with the great friend ship entertained for him by the French, not alone of the ofilcial class, but by all the people. Paris, Oct. R. The boulevards this evening presented a remarkable sight. It hud been stormy early In the duy and Ibis caused the greatest discom fort to the thousands of visitors who had been unable to secure lodgings in the city or vicinity. Towards evening the weather that had given promise of clearing in the early afternoon, became line, and then the principal streets be came fairly jammed with people. It is estimated that there ure fully a million strangers in the city, Tlie crowds are remarkably orderly. Tomorrow will be u general holiday in honor of tlie visit of the Czar. Every precaution lias been taken for the safe ty of the nation's guests. The entire route of the procession through the city was lined with troops, who will keep tlie line with the strictest discipline, ltehind Ihe troops will be slutioiied imliccmen, who will face the crowd, thus being in a position to seize nny seditious shunters or offenders against Ills majesty, the Czar. It is said that a number of known anarchists have been expelled from the city, w hile others who are suspected of having anarchistic tendencies have been warned. FIREMEN AT JOHNSTOWN Scranton's Delegation Is at Work in the Interest ol the Elec tric City. Special to the Scranton Tribune. Johnstown, Pa Oct. S. The Scran ton delegation consisting of twelve persons arrived here last night at ll.5!, after a delightful trip. The parly im mediately proceeded to the Capitol where quarters had been engaged in advance. This morning all rose early and proceeded to the Farvtow ceme tery where eight hundred unidentified dead are buried. To reach tlie place it was necessary to act-end nine hund red feet In a carriage hoisted up an Inclined plane by two powerful cables. The various engine houses were then Inspected and were found to be equal to those in Scranton. At 4 o'clock the first delegation of any size arrived from Pittsburg and Homestead. They were immediately followed by the Wilkes-iBBi-re delega tions headed by the Ninth Regiment band, about fifteen Wilkes-Hat-re fire men were In the crowd. The balance being made ud of Pittston, Edwards vllle and Nanticoke firemen. The Shamokin train consisting of two coaches was attached to the Wilkes Barre train. Refreshments were served on the train to all persons under the care of Stegmaier free of charge, but the Shumokin crowd who declared for Scranton, was compelled to pay much to their disgust. The Philadelphia delegation arrived at 4.47. In the crowd was Hon. James Clarency, Chief Baxter, Assistunt Chief Nallinger, Vice-President Harper, and fifty-two members of the paid depart ment. In the same train was Secretary W. W. Wunder-and wife of Reading, ex-President Brooks and many of the old familiar faces to be seen at each year's convention. Scranton Is doing much work for se curing the convention in '!" and not withstanding thut money, is being freely used by Wilkes-Harre. the fight ing chances seem about even. Tonikht the caucus will take place and the re sult will be told in the next dispatch. WARNING TO HYPNOTISTS. Kespoiiisble tor Any Damage Done by Their Accomplices. Atlanta. Oa.. Oct. 5. If the ruling of Judge Foute. of Atlanta, obtains, hyp notists will have to be very careful what they order their subjects to do. The judge holds that the hypnotist is directly responsible for the acts of his subjects. During a performance at a local theatre the subject of hypnotism imagined lie was a monkey. He grabbed a hat from a man in the audi ence and ,bit a piece out of It. The professor and his business manager de clined to make good the cost of the hat, and the hypnotist was prosecuted before Judge Foute upon a charge of malicious mischief. Tlie judge sustained the charge and bound the hypnotist over to a higher court. -m. PUDDLERS INDIFFERENT. They Refuse to Work at Reduced Wages. Pottstown, Pa., Oct. S.

ADDRESS TO THE GERMAN AMERICANS Mr. llobnrt Answers Questions t on ccruing (ho Allegations in Refer ence to Ihe Mythical Coal Trust. ( hnirmnu llanna Also Nails an Absurd Campaign I airy Tale. New York, Oct. n. Samm-l M. Tay lor, secretary of slate for Ohio, said this afternoon ut Republican headquarters: "1 have never seen the state of Ohio in better or more promising condition ut tills stage in uny campaign. There Is not the slightest doubt of un abund ant Republican majority in Ohio this year." The utlvlsory committee of the Ger-mau-Ainericuus attached to the Re publican national committee issued uu uddiess this afternoon to the Germnn Americun citizens of the United States. The address is as follows: "When our country was In danger of being torn asunder by secliotml Inter ests a large majority of citizens and particularly the I ierninn-Americans, stood ready at tlie Instant to sacrifice their lives and all they hud for the mainlcniiuce of the union. "Totluy certain elements are bent on undermining the honor and credit of our country anil in destroying its prop erly; they are aiming tu depreciate our standard money, guaranteed by our legislation. To overcome this tlunger und to remove this disgrace now threatening our country, all patriotic citizens ure again banding themselves together. This danger has been caused by the selfishness of the owners of sil ver mines who ure aiming to find a more extended market for their vastly Increased production, and to secure for themselves unusual large profits. The distressed condition of business affairs during the past year, which was part ly liroiight about by a change In the tariff, have furnished them with a wel come opportunity for influencing public opinion by continued agitation. "To champion their cause they suc ceeded in gaining a number of demn gouges, who with the aid of Popultstic and Socialistic strikers, made them selves masters of thp convention end one of the two great political parties. APPEAL TO LABOR. "Through its standard bearers tne party now appeals to thousands who are dissatisfied with the present condi tion of life and the opportunities for making a living. It calls upon those who possess nothing to engage In a conflict with those who own property. It keeps up an agitation in favor of changing the present stundard into free and unlimited coinage of sliver in or der to surrender the government of the country into the hands of such ele ments as threaten to subvert to the very foundations, on which rest all the interest of the wage earner, and cC commerce, and of manufacture. Fur thermore, it threatens, aided by Popu-listic-Anarchlstic elements the very foundation of our legislation, public or der and the existence of our -,upiuie court. "No American citizen who loves his country can remain Indifferent and in active in this campaign for aside from all ethical considerations there are at stake the Interests of the entire coun try. In view of Importance of these questions nnd also of the conceded gen eral inlelligenctof the German-American citizens of this country we believe that as the time when our union was in danger so they will now rush to the rescue of our nation's honor and do oil in their power to put an end, with one decisive blow, to all the dangers now threatening our country. Tills oan be done by voting for the standard h-arers of that party which just came out for the gold standard. By electing Mc Kinley and Hobart the honor of out nation, the credit of our country can be maintained, nil our national Insti tutions permanently secured. By elect ing these candidates we will show not only to our country but to all the wo;-ld that we are an honest people and pro pose to remain so. The more clea.-ly we express this purpose of ours the more decisive the defeat of the enemies to our national honor will become, the more safely we may hope to crush the silver craze now and forever." Secretary of State Palmer has fixed the date for the hearing of Chairman Elliot Danforth's protest against the use by the sound money people of the title "The National Democratic party" on the blanket ballot for tomorrow in Albany at 2 p. m. AS TO THK COAL TRUSTS. When vice-presidential candidate Hobnrt's attention was called today to a report that has recently been circu lated in the west, to the effect that he is president ol' Ihe hard coal trust, which, it is alleged, has advanced the, price of coal. Mr. Hobart said: "Last December the Trunk Line rail roads, located east of the Mississippi, were called upon, tinder an agreement, known as the Joint flattie association, to select three arbitrators, to arbitrate the differences, which might arise be tween these railroads. Only trunk lines were Included in this arbitration. Coal roads were not Included and the matter submitted to arbitration had nothing to do w'ilh the coal, eoaljiro dilction, coal tonnage, or the price of coal, in any manner. Jorm or shape whatever, either directly or Indirectly." Mr. Hobart added that he had no conei tion whatever und does not know of Ihe existence of uny such trust, ex cept us he has seen statements in tlie newspapers. Mr. llanna. when asked this afternoon what truth there was in the report that lie had written a letter to an intimate friend In which lie con ceded tlie election of Bryan because Republicans were unable to control Ihe labor vote, saiti that tile report was ab surd on the face of it, "I have not written such a letter." he said, "nor have I at any time said nnything ca pable of such Construction. 1 have never conceded tlie election of Mr. Bryan and I certainly cannot concede it now when the tide is flowing so strongly and unmistakably in the di rection of Republican success. "I am confident that the men who work, whether for salary or by the day, will be with the Republican party in this campaign for honesty and for sound Inii-i-eiit dollars. Any other in terpretation of Die attitude of the wage-earners would be an insult to their patriotism and their intelligence, for they have more at stake In this campaign than any other class of men.
