The time ol t the speakers was divided as follows: , Governor Hoadly opened with on^ hour; Judge Foraker tnen occupied one hour and a half, Hoadly to close with ' half an hour. i Judge Doyle called the meeting to order. Representative Hurd arose and intro' dnce?l Governor Hoadly in a few words, and the latter began his spcech amid the enthusiastic plaudits of the audience. * He began by reciting the circumstances r leading to the challenge to joint debate. f The most important is&ue of the cam* t paign was the question of peraonal liberty and how far interfered with by law as to 1 the habit of drinking. He then proceedt ed to define the position of both parties r on the liquor question by reading the r p'atforms of each. TUB LIQCOB QUEST10X. He defined the plank in the Republi* i can platform recognizing the right of the i people to amend the organic law of the . State to mean that the Republicans favor i the prohibitory amendment. He argued . that the point, however, was ho* far the l?? ?a mw*u1.ita ?ho ni.ru/-ina! huk, j mn Ui?y wu " its of citizens. The answer to it depend*! ' on the answer to another question, "ia 1 drinking a vice? Ii it barralul or w/oag to take one i^laas of beer or wine? I-ja > man to bo allowed to indulge in moderate , drinking, which can do no harm? II drinking be a vice, selling liquor is a vice. ' But if a man who id capable of self-control, I who takes a drink on a farai (toes no harm, then it does no harm to drink it in a saloon. He referred to the locil option feature of the Scott law, which 1 differs from total prohibition as a coach ' dog differs from a do# all one color. He anathematized the Scott law for this feature. He detined himself as opposed to partial prohibition or total prohibition ' and in favor of personal freedom to the i fullest extent. The speaker elaborated t the point that if wrong in on? place drinking was wrong in ail; if right iu oae pU<? it was ri*bt in all. The principle that ^ would justify the Scott law the local r option feature would justiiy the prohibi r tion of chewing or smoking tobacco within municipalities. His conclusion was that legislation must be dir cted againet evils of liquor drinking, but not against f drinking itself. This was in the right dii rection of temperance lecislation within cities or without them. The ino-t valuable pwsessiou of a citizen is his personal I liberty; therefore, all movements which I strike at this must be opposed.

How can he justify . this and not justify State prohibition ? He y compared Foraker to the sandwich man with a placard in front "not for prchibis tion" and on the back a placard with "apt i against prohibition," ami challenged r him to state whether be was in , favor of prohibition or opposed tc it. He insisted that prohibition it 3 the issue in Ohio bfcange the next Legis* w tare will be asked to piss prohibition legislation. Hedesired to know if Foraker was elected Governor wherhor he will in his message recommend the submission ol ' the prohibitory amendment to the Stat* . Constitution. He demanded whether ii . the Republican Supreme Conrt is elected it will reverse the Jate decision that th? Scott law is unconstitutional and compel ' the ealoon keepers to pay back the taj&s s He charged that thU was the R?qublicat r programme. He declared there were but two methods of settling the temperance question: Prohibition and license. Tht 7 Scott law was but a bastard kind of t ? Ha ho favored a graded license OKasure acconiin?4o-the amount ' of tales, license protects the traffic, secures pereoual liberty, crushes out low divej and secure* obedience to the law bj dealers. He declared that houses cf illfame would not b* licensed to sell li^uoi as under the Scott law. b The speaker quoted Senator Sherman ai f saying the Legislature of Ohio cannol > license the sale of liquor and under the ? present constitution coj;M not see how th< tax law could be px?s?;dj that wiU faaye t< be construed by a court us a license.

H e read !rom Hoadly's inaugural ail/iress i ie paragraph iu which the Governor tai< jr the Scott law ought not to b? repealed u Regarding th?* right of tlu people t change tbe Cjnstitu'ion hu showed th, i* Democratic plea f it license cannot b le adopted without Srat amending the Coo 1- atitntion which forbida liueu*. The Ua publican platform declares In favor c the regulation of the evils of the liauor i bi traffic Hoadly had just acknowledged' ai ought to be corrected. As to method! of; in regulation he could not, of courserforetell j fe what a Republican Legislature would do jaf after the discussion of the legal methods, wi y This ia a matter of detail for the Legis-|oT lature. The pledge of the platform ia for ac proper regulation of those evils and the th Republican party has never yet made a pledge it has broken. The apealcer took up Hoadly's argu* Tt ment that it is not competent for the Legislature to tax the liquor traffic and point? ed out that the Democratic Supreme - Court in deciding the Scott law onconsti- an e tutional diij not decide that the principle he of taxation was unconstitutional, but that W( one feature .of law making tax a lien on * property occupied by a saloon was unl. constitutional. He also denied that the 0X1 . eame Supreme Court decided that the tax U? ' collected from the liquor dealers should Wt, ' not be returned. His position is that it is . 4 iinmiiutifnf innal OM-rmd to take the tax 3 and unconstitutional to take it back. a He declared that it ia not onlv conaU'to- coi tional to tax the liquor tr&tlic, but equit- jD) * able to make it share the burden of the . J crime it produces. Obio three times has 0 1 overwhelmingly defeated license, yet , 1 Democrats cone prutending to favor ? licence. When Houily proposes this he J know* it will be two years before a license b'j proposition can be submitted to the peo pie, who have heretofore rejected it. i th< THE KEI'L'HLICAN RECORD. The Republican party takes hold of the thi i matter in a practical way, dealing with ' the Constitution as it is. The speaker dej manded of Hoadly whether he was in ??j favor of a high or low graded license, a re[ i 11,000 or a $500 one? How to provide for tha i securing license; wftether as iu the comti- for tutional convention of 1872 he was in -favor yea of the taxation of churches and school we: houafS of the State? The speaker be- for lieved iu letting them go free, lieligiou the , and education are necessary to the welfare do i of the people. Foraker then turned his tur attention to the last Legislature, which, he tha declared, was the moet infamously corrupt tba iu the history of the State, so corrupt that, ove when Hoadly approved of it yet, the coal get oil members believed to have sold their ag# v,ptes to elect Payne Senator were all trai dropped by their constituents. Thespeaker gre then read the charges of corruption and ext bribery in the election of Senator Payne me from a number of different Democratic cot journals. mil PSXITESTURV MHMAXaaZME.Vr. He then turned to the Democratic mis- JJJ management of the penitentiary. He Bin showed that tbia institution, nailer the can last year of Governor Foster's administration, there had been a net profit of ,)r| over $53,000; while the next year, the firat of the Democratic rule, reduced this . . to $10,000, SS.000 of which waa realiz-d ?Jj ' from the Republican eya:em of manage- ,1?, m ?n tin vogue when th^y took hoi 1 of it. He then read dnancial statement* for the tirst , nine months of tho year, showing the de- th(J ticiency, which the total loss to date has been is compared with Republican J? 1 administration* j>ve; 11/0,000 as the pr ce the people have to pay for Dem- -0 ocratic mrsmana^emtnt. Is it not, he ? said, time fora change? The legistature has undertaken to lay violent hands on the* principle of local self-gov- $.i ernment. The apeaker then referred to the so-called "ripper" bills, recogn-'zlng Cincianati and other cities of the Stats in q:v the interest of the Dem jcratic pirty. The *?/. speaker prom!aed to speak In full of the Cincinnati "ripper'' bill in his Saturday *.uj speech in that city. H-? then re- ^ cmnied the provisions of the bill to reor- twc ganise the City of Columbus and poinUd gig out the outrageous character of the r scheme givin* t-> the Board of Control all j the powera of all the City Dipirtments -ue with power to make every appointment of jj j every grade, giving that Board absolute qqq power to appoint every officer in the city d , except the Mayor, who waa stripped of j every power and left a mere figurehead. eJ, It was a practical disfranchisement of the ritizena of Columbus. The personal liberty of the peopl* .was preserved by the Supreme Court declaring tho mouatroua bill unconstitutional. Yet Hoadly pleads for personal liberty. Tlu DEMOCBATIC INJ CSTICE. ^ The speaker exhibited a colored plate of the City of Columbus showing the re- ^ districting by Democrats, one ward, being a narrow strip seven miles long, another re[ 1 3} and 7 others 3 miles long and only a 1 few rods wide, the purpoee being to give f 300 or 400 Democrats the aime power in ?U? ; electing councilmen aa 1.200 to 1,400 ia Republicans He also exhibited a plate we of the districting by Republicans, eje showing it waa fair and just. j0j i Then the speaker turned to the bonded j0 debt of the State and showed that eigh- at8 ? teen montha before the bonds were due a j | statute waa passed for its refunding, which cia . uiuereu iroiu uu tuiiuci m?D iui outu puiposes in allowing new bonda to be dinposed of without advertising, but refund- aD( ; ing might be done by private coa- an, tract approved by the Governor. Then ,u i he explained the refunding contract cre . which waa attempted to be entered into ?e, at 3.5 percent per year, which would give D0 19} percent tor the time the bonda had to i run, a profit of over $400,000 to the person . i.* [ securing the contract. ' , Mr. Foraker closed by referring to _..j r Hoadly'a conduct in the Conatitutional 0 [ convention, and asked him if he 0 > wt-re still opposed to having any men- (or | tion of God in the State Constitution, qj whttherheatilloppoaed.ashedidthen, a XI i proviaion for impeaching judges for drank- ^ ennesaj whether he waa stillTn favor of _ t . taxing churches and schools? furaker .jc, ^ declared thai he was not in favor of tar- tfaa [ ing them, as he regarded religion aud : I morality as the safeguards of the Nation. . ' : He cicaed by asking: if Hoadly favored i high license or low license? Ilia close was met with rounds of cheers. 1 Uoadly stepped forward and said twice: "Dodged agiin. He talked for an hour P*) and a ball and no human Ijejqg can tell ^ whether he is for prohibition or against it." (jit Me called attention to the Tact that ajg Robinson, the Republican Secretary of bei State, was one of the refunding commis- b* sion who made the bond centract which Jjj he (Hoadiy) ba<l vetoed. The speaker Jjj then turned to the Prohibition (jieationer Ko and eUaracteriaed' Foraker as a candidate vio vho cou'd take refuge in silence on the yQ rnojt vital question of the campaign, , Regirdlng charges* of corruption concorning the election of Senator Payne, r which Foraker read from a Demo- 1 - ?;,j ?k.n - criiuc paper, m?ui? o?.i?

As to the ttricture on the pen:- wb 1 tentiary minsgament, he Bhowetl there tot 1 *fre two Republican members of the for B Ujard, and there has never been a pro- thf test against the action of the 8 sard from mc them. an 9 He disputed Foraker's statements at ex- tie i travagani* in the Staia expenditure. Be- vo : warding the decision of the Supreme Court he; a as to tbe refunding ot the Scott tax to ;? liquor dealers, Hoadly noted tbe fact that sec i the decision was made by a bench of but kil , three judges, two of whom were Republi- Hi l cans, lie extolled tbe liquor code of the ch e State, repeali d by the Scott law and de- gn a clared it provided perfectly against the evils th i gf drinking to excess. He declared in At I. faver of lovr license as against high license; tb o for license ss against prohibition. . He th 9 did not fam license so high ss to pro- ?h b bible. Regarding the Columbns ' rip- br if per' bill Hoadiy phoved up the Republi- Hi b can riKmraniaatton of Cincinnati 30 years be 4 ago, from which he declared the Rumbus to A il to be copied. He closed with a severe rairnment of the Republican party for couaiatency and expresaing the kindeat elinga for Foraker personally.

An atnpt is therefore to be made to secure a csiderable reduction, as no good showt for economy can b 3 made on the basis the last Democratic tigures. It is a noteworthy fact that during the ;al year ending June 20,1885, the civil peases of the Government reached a *her figure than ever before, namely, ',491,258.

New Yobk, Oct. 8.?The Herald contains a ten-column statement by Ferdinand Ward in regard to the transactions Gnttff Jc Ward. It does not reveal any additional names of beneficiaries by the , Srm's crooked operations, thongh consid- , erable interesting information id given in regard to the dealings of persons heretofore mentioned in that connection, and several parties are referred to by their ( initials, as participating in the profits of the concern. Ward sayB he does not believe General Grant knew anything J about the details of the firm's business, i be never examined the books. The only i charge he makes against Warner is that the latter compelled him by threats of making trouble with influential creditors , Df the firm, to transfer his property to . Warner, thus savin* tho latter from loss. He thinks Warner has used the property to square np wkh people from whom he borrowed money to ose with Grant & 1 Ward. 1 The books show enormons profits ac- 1 trued to all the Grants, but thev were 1 mostly pending at the time of the failure, and du not intimate that the gentlemen had actually drawn out any large sums. Ward debits himself with $633,918 out of ( >,000,000 paid out as profits by the firm; U. 8. Grant, $217,239; J. D. Fish, $1,000,000; Marine Bank, $332,820; U. 8. Grant, Jr., $188,000; F.

Ward makes Mayor Grace's profit as $147,182. He produces a letter from Mayor Grace, asking to be admitted to the firm, inquiring if thev conld not procure him some contracts for government supplies, and offering, in that case, to assist them in the way of loans. Perhaps the most serious charge in the statement is the ene to the effect that on the strength of friendship with General Grant, General Goxdin, of Georgia, obtained $18,000 from the firm on a personal note at the time of the firm becoming owners of the Belmont mining property, and that the note was never paid and had to be charged to profit and loss. Ward cites uuite a number of other cases in the earlier histpry of the firm, where large ^mounts of money was lost through inveetments st the suggestion of General Grant, or hja (amiljr, or friendi, the inference being that this was th price paid by Ward for the sake of s< curing the benefits of General Grant connection with him.

Speaking of the Campaign in Virginia, be said be learned from the pewspipers that the Democratic candidate for Governor uses the saddle and bridle used by Robert ?.
