between .the two committees for whicl

by the prominent leaders of both parties
r The remainder of th?? house was free
t hence toe wild scramble for admission ai
, soon as the doors were opened.
A small table in front marked thecentrt
> line of the atago. To right and left of thii
> were other tables two chairs to each occu
r pied by the two speakers and chairman*
Judge John H. Doyle was the Chairmac
of the meeting on the part of the R-pub
licans. Representative Frank Hurd of
1 ficiated for the Democrats. 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.
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. Drinking
I is not a vice, bat excessive drinkinir isProhibition
is a failure in Miine, in Kan'
sai and iu Iowa. The statistics of a namber
of United States liqior licenses is'

ing an increase in tvfco of these.
Hoadly pronounced prohibition an in>
' centive to hypocrisy and said he wai
against it root and branch. He challenged

i He is in favor of the Soofct lav, the ninth
i section of which gives municipalities the
. power to prohibit. 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

w tare will be asked to piss prohibition

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

would not b* licensed to sell li^uoi
as under the Scott law.

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

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 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
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

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

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
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

, Mr. Foraker closed by referring to _..j

and a ball and no human Ijejqg can tell ^

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

, 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

ie appropriations, (or which a Dernoitic
Committee of Apppropriation and a

ire much greater than it is now beved
they should have been. An atnpt
is therefore to be made to secure a

for economy can b 3 made on the basis

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. These figures are exclusive"
the expenditures made on account of
> ariny, the navy, Indians, pensions and
erestonthe public debt, which swell
* aim rebate expenditures of the year to
10,225,985. For the ten years ending
th June 30, 1870, which included the
tire period of tne rebellion, the average
senditures on account of civil and mislaueom
items was $27,(>S9,OQO, or-less
in one-third of the amount expended
like purposes during the last" fiscal
it. Following the war, truss expenses
re swollen by the payment of claims
property captured and destroyed by '
(military forces, but these "warclaims"
not mako any showing in the expendi- :
es for last year, and yet the aggregate of
.t year is nearly $17,000,00&in excess of
,t tor the preceding year, ar.d$14,000,000,
ir the highest point previously reached,
'eral of the items which go to swell the 1
;regate of Inst year may be called exordinary,
but the recklessness of Cones
in making appropriations and the i
ravagauce of the Executive Depart- ,
nt in expending them, are 'largely acintable
for the dissipation of many '
[lions ot dollars. 1
'he extraordinary expenditures of last J
ir foot up about$14,000,000, and include '
i following itPinc Pacific Kiilroad'a

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. D Grant, $133,000; War- ,
ner (estimated), $1,300,000; In receiver's
hands, $4?0,000 ^office expenses, interest
on loons, ac.t 9000,?. ?. iuo ion. vumwo
of smaller auoanta to the various patties
known in the affair.
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.

Bennett -recently appeared here in a
skating-rink as a professional boxer, and
gave ?oe -or two exhibitions. After his
last appearance he proceeded to get drunk,
and wound up by attempting to assAult a
laundress, for which he was lodged in jail.
At 9 o'clock last night a party of masked
men appeared at the j ail. The keys were
forcibly caken from, the jailer, and the
doors were opened.
Securing Bennett, tha crowd proceeded
to the edge of town, where a kettle of tar
was boiling. Two men soon appeared,
carrying a featherbed which the lanndresa
had furnished. Bennett was now thoroughly
alarmed, and pleaded for mercy,
but his masked captors were inexorable.
Finally one of them advanced and
ordered Bennett to remove his clothing.
Bennett refused, and emphasized tne denial
by knocking the man down. This so
enraged the mob that they gathered
around Bennett and torehia clothing from
him. The tar was hot and was applied
with brooms, Bennett being held upon the
ground until the work was completed
When he was completely covered he was
rolled in the feathers.
The night was cold, and Bennett's clothing
had been torn to rags, b it his covering
of feathers kept him warm. He was
riven notice that if he ever returned to
VVoonsocket he would be lynched, and
then he was left to shift for himself.
