Convention, ? "*- ? ?r
Judge unil two electors at large, met in
the opera house at II o'clock this morning.
Tiio convention id the largest held
here for many years and the opera house
[3 ovi ivrov.'ied. The convention was
allied to order by Chairman Cooper, of
the suite Committee.
Samuel .Miller, of Mercer county, was
elected temporary chairman.
Ifpon taking the chair he congratulated
the convention upon the harmony
which prevails among the Republicans
of the Mate, and said: "To no one
more than to the distinguished gentleman
who represents the western slopes
ui the Allegnenies in the upper house
of Congress is this happy state of alTairs
Throughout the country the outlook
is cheering and hopeful. Every
branch of industry is fairly prosperous".
_Bv virtue of the wise tinancial and industrial
Illation of the Republican party
in tli'- < ' ingress of the.United States since
1*)!, our manufacturing and other industries
are fairly prosperous, not withstanding
the discouraging, although un.huci
-si nl attacks made upon them by
every Democratic Congress that has
been in power since 1874. Her capital

an<t protected than in any nation of the
old world. As a nation and as individuals
we are contented, rich and prosper.v..
..r ?n of what the
0US, Iiui ;y* ?
Democratic party has uorie, it is now
doing or attempting to do, but despite
their efforts to overthrow and overturn
the financial industrial legislation of
successive Republican Congresses since
1801. Every wheel that has been put in
motion ami kept in motion in our
countless workshops; every tire that has
been limited and kept brightly burning
in our foundries, furnaces and mills;
every spindle that tills the air with its
ceaseless music; every mine that
yields its rich treasures?all these
are the direct work of the legislation
ol the party to which
wo belong. The vital question of to-day
id shall the American doctrine of protection,
the American markets for American
manufactures be retained, or shall
the Democratic party be permitted to
hinder, cripple and "overturn all this?
Shall oar people march forward, or shall
they be at a retreat at the whim of a
Demt K-ratic Ways and Means Committee,
moved by the power and patronage of a
Democratic executive? Shall the next
President of the United States favor the
Colicies and theories of a Cleveland or a
laine ? There is another question that
merits our attention. As Penusylvanians
we are directly interested in the success
of the Republican party in the Nation. A
NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL POLICY
that would cripple or hinder the development
of our manufacturing interests
would be felt more severely by the peo
? ll.?? 1... Ann fullnti-.
pie oi our >7ua' man uj v/u? iwwn
countrymen in those sections thnt have
not directly been affected by the growth
and prosperity which naturally results
from our great industries. It is of the
utmost importance, therefore, that Pennsylvania
Republicans should take the
lead in all matters that are calculated to
extend, strengthen and solidify Republican
theories, policies and principles in
every part of our Union. How can this
be accomplished? Shall we do so by
keeping on assisting in perpetuating by
word or deed a Solid South ? Have we
as Republicans done all that we can do
to assure and convince the people of
the South that we are anxious to create
and maintain terms of amity and friendship
and peace with those of our fellow
citizens who, a few years back, were at
war with the Nation ? Is it not worth
while to have not only a truce, but
Kace? Is it not an object worthy of our
st efforts to build up a Republican
party in the Southern States in which
the Confederates can join heartily?
And which will make the States of the
South as debatable on the eve of a president^
election as are the States of the
North, East or West? I take it that
every Republican deems this wise, prudent"
and desirable. Can we accomplish
it by keeping oihe the animosities of
th.' war; by a causeless and useless discission
about the captured battle flags;
by keening a chronological record of that
class ot citizens denominated "Southern
brigadiers;" l>eeauso they are honored
by the people of the South with positions
of honor, trust and profit; by denying
the tltness of a candidate for positions
in the Nation solely because he
aided and abetted the rebellion in

not time that all this should close and
that distinguished representatives of
?>ur party, whether in or out of the
State, should know that the path to preferment
in every .State leads by and
tlirough more fruitful political field*?
Have we not learned by experience that
we can never firmly plant the standard
of our party in a single Southern State
by such methods ? General Grant never
uttered a more worthy sentiment than
in tlu* epigram "Let u? have peace."
*<?t only the people need it for fheirfull
development, socially and politically,
hut [our mines and 'manufactures, that
they may be more fully develops in
th- future, demand that amity and good
feeling that shall tlow therefrom. If the
Republican party is to have an equal
chance to triumph in the Natipn we
must divide the South. The1 two Virginia*,
Tennessee, North Carolina, -ila!>ama,
Georgia and Louisiana should be
as debatable as is New York, New Jersey,
Connecticut and Indiana, and they
would be if we would once convince the1
people of those States that their local
an.i home interests were as sa/e under a
republican as under a Democratic administration.

IU.AI.NE H NAME CHEEKED.
Mr. Biflier's reference to Blaine was
greeted with loud and long continued

Keed and Henry W. Oliver were chosen
delegates at large to the National Convention.
THE PRINCIPLES.
The platform was then read as follows:
The Republican party of Pennsylvania
in convention assembled made the following
declaration of principles:
First?W e assert thesimple proposition
that a free right to vote according to law
and to have the vote counted is the foundation
of American Representative Gov
eminent. Representation in Congress
and in the Electoral college is ap(*ortioned
on the basis <rf population, ami a
large portion of that population in certain
sections is notoriously excluded
from the exercise of* suffrage.
A narrow majority of the House of Representatives
is thus maintained, which
threatens to enact radical legislation
hostile to the interests of our country.
Such government is no longer free but
tyrannical. With due consideration for
the difficulties of the situation w e demand
of Congress that it enact such legislation
as shall secure fair elections for
members of Congress and the electoral
college.
Second?We declare that the object of
the American system 61 tariff legislation,
besides securing revenue, is the protection
of American Industry. The wonderful
prosperity of this couutv is the
best evidence of the success of this policy,
and the most conservative care
should be taken in disturbing the
many industrial interests which have
grown up under this system. The last
message of President Cleveland is an
assault upon our industries, which will, if
unresisted, result in a policy of free
trade, which, in the near future, will
paralyze or destroy these industries, reduce
"compensation of labor, and impoverish
the >?tion.
Third?Inasmuch as we have a large
debt unpaid, harbors unimproved, fortifications
in decay, inadequate public
buildings for the purj?08os of the Government,
and a Navy incapable of commanding
the respect due the dignity of
a great nation, the Democratic administration
is responsible for allowing the
accumulation ol a large surplus in the
United States Treasury, which should
ivi.nii fmnrnnriiiti'd for these Mir
poses; excessive revenues can and
should be prevented by the reduction or
repeal of internal taxes.
Fourth?Wo protest against the attempt
of the Democratic party in Congress
to strike down the wool-growing
industry by placing its product on the
free list as provided in the Mills bill.
Conservative estimates by leading woolgrowers
and manufacturers place the
number o! persons dependent for
their support upou v/ool growing
at several millions, the number of
acres dependent for their value upon
it ut over $100,000,000, and the loss in
wages and in the value of land and in
its produce, wbicji the withdrawal of
protection from this otw iwlostry would
entail upon the country, at three hujidred
million dollars. The only persons
who would be benefitted by this enormous
loss are foreign producers.
Fifth?It is the duty of Congress to
pass, and of the President to approve
a wise, just and comprehensive pension
bill, giving relief tu disabled veteran
soldiers and subsistence to the helpless
widows and orphans of deceased soldiers,
without regard to the time when disability
was int'Uwi or the cause of
death.
Sixth?The people of Tennsylvanin
unqualifiedly condemn tin* refusal of the
Democratic majority of the Mouse of
Representatives to permit the passage of
the direct tax refunding bill passed by
the Republican Senate, by which it wits
intended to repay to the loyal .States,
without interest, the money paid by
them at the beginning' of the
war to aid in suppressing the
Rebellion, and to cancel the unuahl
balance, priucipal and interest, due troui
the rebel States upon said taxes; ami
we denounce as treacherous and cowardly
the surrender of the Northern Democrat?
in Congress to the small majority
of the ex-Confederates aud their allies
and the abandonment of the bill, which,
if passed, would have contributed ovei
one and a half million dollars to the relief
of the taxpayers of Pennsylvania.
Seventh?We, as a party, as rapidly
as practicable, enacted legislation looking
to a pure business administration ol
the government amj a system of civil
[ service in deferenuo to'a strong recognized
public sentiment against abuses
oJ the" spoils system. A uemo
' cratic President was elected lar^ely
ou the issue of civil servict
reform, upon pledges which guaranteed
on immediate remedy for extended
abuses. These pledges have been notoriously
violated, removal# from <>%<
have been made without cause in amort
sweeping manner than at any other period
in the history of American politica
twrtiea, #i?d Kelt-nil patronage bas beet
boldly and toustaptly used fur partisan
purposes.
Eighth?We recognize the strength o
sentimont in this commonwealth relative
to evils and abuse of the sale < { liquors
and we fear all laws looking in this re
spect to the elevation of the moral con
iUtion of the people, we therefore, re
peat our pledge to submit the questioi
of prohibition to a vote of the people.
>inth?We earnestly protest aguin.*
the pasjraae bv Congress of the "Duni
free ship bill/' which bas been reporter
to the llouse by the Democratic major
ity <jf the Comnfcttee on Merchant Ma
rine or ?.nV other similar measure, a
calculated to v!***0 injustice to Ameri
can labor.
The remaining planks favor C*exnptio
from le\7 of laborers' property to u?
i amount of $300, and equal taxation of
corporations, and endorse Gov. Beaver's
. administration.
The platform was unanimously adopt*

B Boston, April 25.?The Republican S
State Convention to fclect delegates to
the National Convention assembled at F
s Tremont Temple at 11 o'clock this forel
noon.
Prior to the convention there was con(
siderable canvassing at the Tremont
r House and also in the corridors at Tre'
mont Temple. ^
1 A ? m.on n-no a Inriw ontlinrinff at
[ the convention hall and several differ- C<
! ent tickets were distributed. One, made cjj
1 up by Essex county men, bore the names
ol George F. Hoar, A. W. Beard, George 00
* B. Loring and Frederick L. Burden, foi
: Another regular State Committee ticket ye
1 contained the names of Hoar, Burden, nj
" Beard and Henry L. Hide. Another, .
the "Anti-Beard" ticket, substituted the l0<
' name of Loring for that of Beard. or
) The convention was called to order by on
Dr. Burden, Chairman of the State Com- w
' mitteeand a temporary organization was K
1 effected with Robert J. Southworth and 86
1 J. Otis Ward well as secretaries. Prayer th
? was offered by Rev. H. A. Philbrook ha
1 and Dr. Burden then delivered the open
ing address. '
f He said the prospects of the ltepub- ^
licari party in the State and Nation never tei
! looked more encouraging than they do jn,
to-day. He urged the formation of Re- 8ic
publican clubs as aids to the regular or- Qc
ganizatjon, and said the importance of qU
such clulw could not be overestimated. o,C
He favored the policy of making a clean pu
campaign, entirely from a Republican ex
standpoint, "but,' said he, "we will wel- ch
come the honest independent, who, be- f0f
lieviug that the course pursued by the ho
Republican party four years a^o tended po
to retard the reform of the civil service, gat
went out and fell down at the feet of that
great high priest of reform, Grover r
Cleveland, because he will admit his
mistake. But to that so-called ihdepen- 4o(
dent, who seized upon the'question of p^
civil service reform as a pretext, while #
the real reason was that lie Mas a free
trader, we have no concessions to offer.
The Presidential campaign promises
to be a contention for a great economic ^
principle. The policy of the Republican
party is identified with the principal of *
protection to American capital and
American lal>or. President Cleveland's .
message has indelibly imprinted free v
trade upon the Democratic policy. Pres- ?
I irient. (M?'vi*l?nd. for the Democratic x..
party, threw down the gauge of battle, i .
James* G. Blaine picked it up anil an- .
swereil the challenge with a trumpet L
blast for protection that will not cease p
to be heard until u Republican shall sit i^u
in the Presidential chair of the nation. ^
When Dr. Burden made reference to i
the Hon. James G. Blaine, the response '
from the convention was immediate and [
emphatic. The applause was long and .
loud and broke out again and again, cul- . j
minating, at the instance of an enthu- {
siastic spectator in the nailery, in three .u
cheers and a tiger. Allusions to the u.
tariff and the protective policy of the "
Republicans were also well received.
Committees were then appointed on
credentials, i>ermanent Organization, ballots
and resolution*. It was voted that 1
all resolutions offered to be referred to
the Committee on Resolutions without 1
debate. The Cohimittee on Credentials Go
reported 327 towns and 22 cities represented
by 393 delegates. The Committee P
oil Permanent Organization reported for M
President of the Convention, General An
Wm. Cogswell, of Salem.
On taking the chair. General Cogswell < ?*
congratulated the delegates on the per- Th
feet harmony existing in the party. He '
reviewed the record of the Cleveland
administration, which, he declared, was cie
characterized by "ignorance and incapacity,"
its distinguishing feature being
"a total lack of Americanism."
The following was the result of the 8?.
ballot of the four delegates-at-large to 8tl1
the Chicago convention: ***

New Yobs, April 24.?The General
inference of the Methodist Episcopal i
lurch, which meets quadrennially, will
nvene in this city on the 1st of May
r its twenty-fifth session. It met four
ars ago in Philadelphia, and in 1880
ncinnati was the favored place. The
ail arrangements are unusually elabate.
The Metropolitan Opera House
i Broadway will be the scene of the
thering, and the elegant hotels in that
lecfc neighborhood will shelter most of
e delegates. The cost of the building
is been provided for by the sale of the
fhty-four private boxes it contains,
ich of these accommodates from six to
a persons, and the price for each dur*
jj the month the body will be in seain
has ranged from $50 to $100. The
inference proper will occupy the paret,
and there will still remain about
(00 seats which will Ihj open to the
blic. This is admirable, and with the
ception of those who think that a
urch which condemns theatrical per-ntances
ought not to use an opera
use for the transaction of its most imrtant
business, all will no doubt be
isfied and happy.
ITS COMPOSITION.
rhe Conference will consist of about
) delegates. These will come from all
rts of the country and some of them
m abroad. In the M. E. Church
?re are Annual Conferences to the
mber of one hundred and eleveh.
ch of these will be represented in the
ner.il Conference by from one to six
nisters and by one or two individuals
m the laity. "The Conference which
ids two or more clergymen sends two
men?never more than that number,
tile if only one minister goes, but one
man can be sent. Among the minis

legate for every 45 members of each
inual Conference, and one for every
ction of two-thirds that number,
rmerly it was one for every thirty,
t that made the General Conference
large. Many think it is still too
ge, and the Bishops, during this
idrennium, have submitted to the
inual Conferences a proposition to rece
it This, however, has met an emitic
negative, largely, no doubt, beise
so many aspire to be elected to
it body. Nor are the ministers to be
med very much, for it is undeniably a
at honor to go as a delegate to Gen1
Conference, not to speak of the aditage
it is in making other dignities
isible.
"the womax is the case."
Lmong the lay delegates are found ,
vernors, Judges, and others who are
uuinent in civil life, including even a
r distinguished women, like Mrs.
gie F. Newman, of Nebraska, Mrs. ,
xy C. Nind, of Minnesota, and FranG.
Willard, of the whole country. ,
is, by the^vay, will be the first entry
the good sisters within the arena of
i General Conference, the male spes
having hitherto had their own

sm afraid, so to speak. This, too, in
te of the fact that women constitute ,
large a majority of the Church's con;uency.
In this new departure some ,

r days in the Conference itself,
ubtless, too, this Conference, like its
mediate predecessors, will be asked
license women to preach and to prole
for their ordination, a request to
lich the Church has always so far re>nded
in the negative. Thus "the
man in the case" will be conspicuous
rlv and often, and the promise is that,
usual, she will make things lively.
INTHUESTING STATISTICS.
["he General Conference is the only
dy in theM. E. Church possessing the
wer to make or change any of its laws,
d considering the numerical strength
the church, this oue fact accounts
ndantly both for the honor inhering
an election to that body ami for the
de spread interest felt in its results,
te statistics place the whole number
traveling ministers at over 14,000,
th nearly 13,000 local preachers, while
i total membership falls but little bev
2,000,000. It coutrols alao '43,000 or
>re Sunday Schools, in which there
s a grand aggregate of people, young
d old, amounting to 2,100,244. Add to
ese items the additional facts that this
lurch is raising annually for various
rposes over $10,000,000; that its Book
ncerns did a business lost year
lountiug to 2,000,000, and that it
iches the masses of the people to an exit
to which, perhaps, no other Protestt
Church does, anuonesees at once, not
ly the greatness of the Church itself,
t the creat importance, also, of the
dy which has tne sole right to legislate
it. Usually, though, notwithstaudj
the creat power inhering in it. the
neral Conference is exc*.*dingly uelibite
and very slow to make changes. It
)ks, sometimes, just before the body
nvenes, as though it might so trans tn
the organism of the Church as to
ntlar it iinmiwuiitflhlp hv Avon itn
lest friends. The coming Conference
>uld certainly do this if it adopted all
e suggestions vQlnnteered by corjpondents
in tho Church press, and it
>uld not fall very far short of doing it
ould it act favorably upon all the prop*
itions that will be made in dnc time
its own members. It is safe to prect.
however, that this gathering will
little less conservative if any, than its
edecessors have been and that the old
ip will emerge from the forensic temsts
lying before her, not at all darned,
and with very little alteration in
ir rigging.
IHPQBTA.VT WORK.
It is inevitable, though, that some
iange? will be made. Many clamor for
e relaxing of the rule in regard to popar
amusement. The strong point with
ese is that Methodist practice along
is line is not in harmony with its prepts,
and that to retain a diseiplinaiy
tie, which is so often disregarded, is
id policy, especially since, while it reains,
it places Methodism at a disadintage
with other denominations. Relests
for changes in the Itinerant sysm
of the church are very numerous,
none those which are not unlikely to
revafl being the demand for the exten- j
on qt pastoral limits, either uniformly,
r so as to meet special coses, and a proision
bv which Presiding Elders, inead
of being appointed m now by
Bishops, shall be elected by thefr breth
ren. Possibly, too, in the sami
connection something may be doni
by way of conferring more power upor
the Bishop's Cabinet, of which the Pre
siding Elders form the component parts
This with a view to reducing the powei
of the Bishops in the stationing of ministers.
Another matter to be considered
and which will probably be decided ic
the affirmative, is that ol extending the
laity by giving them representatives in
the Annual Conferences. Another question
will be that of union with othei
Methodist churches.. There may be nc
definite proposition' for such union, but
the matter will come up in some form,
and a healthy growth of sentiment will
be indicated. The Conference will also
complete arrangements for a gathering
in this country in 1801 of representatives
of all the Methodist churches in the
world, a similar body to the famous
Ecumenical Conference which met in
1881 in London.
"WILLISO UARKIS'S."
But the greatest interest will centre
in the ?'I?vtions_ It i* notnnita trne.
ns some have said, that the Conference
will have in its gift a sufficient number
of offices to allow of one or more being
conferred upon each of the 450 delegates:
but it is true, that, if service on
Boards and Committees be counted, it
will have nearly enough to allow of such
distribution. It is also true, and some
think very unfortunately so, that the
delegates are, as a general thing, quite
anxious to see themselves properly prodded
for. Charges of wire-pulling and
log-rolling have been brought against
former Conferences which, were they
true, would entitle those bodies to rank
in such matters with an ordinary ward
caucus. But it is not certain that even
the devil is as black as he is sometimes
painted, and it is auite probable that
the same is true of those ministers who
are accused of having recourse to the
arts of the politician. Certainly there j
is an indignant protest against such
conduct from the rank and file of the
Church, and an extended observation
seems to warrant the belief that the
Conference soon to aaBemblo will be a
reform body, at least in that particular.
No one anticipates, however, that there
will be any lack of willing Barkis'*, or
tliat that any who are invited to step
up higher will astonish the country by
declining.
The office of a Methodist Bishop is a
very desirable one. The term is for life,
the salary large, and the influence tremendous.
The Bishops make the appointments,
and it is moderate to say
that each bishop in the M. K. Church
rvntrnlii rtn tliu nvuniini n llimmnnil
preachers and na many churches. Since
the last general Conference three bishops
have died. By these losses the Episcopal
force of the Church has been reduced
to twelve men, and some of these are
not robust any longer. It is inevitable,
therefore, that new timber will be needed
for the Episcopal Board. Precisely
hgw rtiuny new Bishops shall be elected
the Conference itself will determine. A
reasonable prediction would place the
number of new bishops at not more
than five, as more than that would involve
a radical departure from all recent
precedents.
SOME EXCELLENT TIMBER.
Who will be promoted to this dignity
is one of the things no fellow can yet
tell with absolute certainty, but he
would be a poor observer of events who
couldn't venture a few guesses. It is
not improbable William Taylor, now
Missionary Bishop to Africa, will be
made a full-fledged" Episcopate". He
thinks he is this now, and so do Borne
other people, but if he is be was certainly
made so by accident, for the last General
Conference never intended to make
him such a person. Another upon
whom the lot is not unlikely to fall is
Dr. John H. Vincent, who four years
rgave Bishop Fowler such a long and
te tussle. I)r. James M. King, of
New York, is another probability, as is
also Dr. D. A. Cioo<lsell, of the same city.
Dr. II. A. Buttz, of Drew Seminary, is also
BupjMsed to be in the line of promotion.
For the two last named a preference has
been expressed by some of the present
bishops, In the West Dr. Charles H.
Payne, of Ohio Wesleyan University,
looms up as a decided probability, being
closely followed bv Earl Cranstonl of
the Cincinnati Book Concern. In New
England the tug of war will be between

L'Uch of whom, in certain contingencies,
would stand an excellent chance. Dr.
Daniel Dorchester will also make a
strong pull in this section. Many think
Dr. A. Leonard, of Ohio, is a possibility.
He would certainly be the first one
thought of if the lines were to be drawn
tightly on the question of prohibition.
Dr. T. B. Neeley, of Pennsylvania, will
be strengly urged by his section, torn will
bring to the contest the prestige of
great abilities. As usual, Ohio leads
in the number of candidates. Both Dr.
Bayliss, of the Watern, and Dr. Joyce
are talked of, and each will have from
the start considerable strength. Be-j
sides these many other names occur, altogether
too many to mention, among
them that of Dr. C. C. McCabe. the
splendid missionary secretary, whose
irresistible enthusiasm has put $400,000
into the missionary treasury in the last
four years, and who is popularly supposed,
and with good reason, to be!
worthy of anything in the gift of the
Church. If the Conference should take J
a notion of that kind it oould send the
Chaplain into a bishop's chair with
scarcely any opposition, and this contingency
may arise. Many think Dr. Buckley
would be made a bishop were it not I
for his superb adaptation to editorial
duties.
Nearly all the General Secretaries, the
Editors, the Book Agents and other officials
are likely to be re-elected. If. however,
any of these should be called to
higher positions or should wish to retire
Into private life, there will be no I
trouble in prevailing upon others to fill
their placcs, though of this, and all
other matters relating to this important
Conference, we shall know more anon.

CHARMS GRAVE SENATORS,
While Ho Auempu to Show that the
Democratic Party lit the True and
Only Friend or (he Union Soldier?Tariff
in the Hou*e.
Washington, D. C., April 25.?In the
Senato to-day the motion to refer the
President's message was taken up. and
Mr. Voorhees proceeded to address the
Senate thereon. He said that an extensive
discussion of the tariff in the Senate |
and House left no doubt as to the attl- (
tude of the Republican party on that i
question, and it had at last been forced *
to throw away maslu and false faces, and
to admit that taxation was not to stop at f
the revenuo line of the Government, I
but was to be turned loose without limit ?
and without shame on the labor of the G
people for the set purpose of enriching J
a favored few?a syndicate of devouring,
insatiate monopolists. ff
AN ALLEGBD UKPUBLICAN POSITION'. J
The Republican party leaders, driven g
by madness to suicide and hari kari, were li
going before the American people, op- c
posing every reduction of taxes, except
those paid bv tobacco and alcoholic
spirits. He did not intend that the t]
issue should be dodged in the coming
political campaign, at least in Indiana.
The position of the Republican party p
might be described thus: Q
First?Taxation not to bo limited by <1
I the expenses of the expenses of tho c<
Government, with a view to the protec- r?
tion of manufacturing monopolist*. a
Second?All the protection given aud p
all its profits to inure to the further-en- t?
J richment of capitalists, but not a dollar
of it to tho lal)oring man an woman. n
Third?That if an^r reduction of taxes sj
was to take Jplace, it must l>e alcoholic ti
liquor and tobacco, and not on the di
prime necessaries of life. w
Passing to the charges that the Dem- o)
ocrats in Congress havo been hostile to c<
the Union soldiers in the matter of pen- ol
sions, he contrasted the action of both tc
parties in that matter, and claimed that
the Republicans would make a mean h
and pareimonous record toward the sol- tl
diers, aud that rank and bitter injustice T
had been done them by provisions of law G
II ml or fhn Roniihllmna whiln th#? I)pi?- IB
ocrats in Congress and in the Executive u
otlice had been liberal in the extremes. i>
DANIEL WAXETII ELOQUENT.
Referring to the attack made in the u:
Senate upon the memory of McClellan la
and Hancock, he said the presiding offi- ct
cer of the Senate had descended to the I*
floor and attacked the memory of Amer- gi
ican heroes, who weie- sleeping where m
flowers and tears were annually com- fe
mingled on memorial day, resting from m
the glorious lives in the quiet bivouac of 01
the dead. The pious task of making re- a
sponse had been appropriately performed ol
by one whose conspicuous darjnjj in p*
arms had given him the generous right ??
of chivalry to speak in their praise. tt
It was true that not even the eloquent w
tongue of Blackburn could reath Mc- p<
Clellan or Hancock with assurance of w
their country's devotion and love. sj
"Can honor's choice provoke the silent w
dust; or flattery soothe the dull,!cold ear
of death ?" hi
No, but the voice of the Senator from d?
Kentucky on that occasion had been an m
honor to American manhood and Amer- ti
ican soldiery. There were suggestions, st
however, inspired by the wanton and di
astounding assault of the Senator from Im
Kansas, which would not speedily pass si
from the public mind. That Senator, a fr
recognized leader of his part v, bail stood ai
in his place in the Senate and denounced
two great Union Generals as traitors to tl
their country, ol
ALLIES OP TUB CONFEDERACY, 01
and no word of dissent or rebuke had
been uttered by a single associate in
either House. Democrats had waited
and some had wondered, but the silent
acquiescence in the horrible charges remained
unbroken. rt
Mr. Voorhees proceeded to draw a w
vivid picture of the events during the x
war, beginning with the scenes on the tc
night of the first battle of Bull Run, H
when the wearied gallop of the courier n
could be heard as he came over the long x
bridge and reached the War Department a]
with dispatches of disaster from the u
front. In that hour of national extrcm- g]
ity McClellan had been called by de- v
spairing official authority to perform a Cl
task greater far than was ever performed
by Alexander, Hannibul, Ctesar or Na- q
poleon, in the same length of time. j
Mr. Voorhees changcd the scene to w
Gettysburg, where he said the last hope p
of the Southern Confederacy disappear- ti
ed forever. What invisible spirit ot the ti
air, he asked, intent upon evil to the 0
Senator from Kansas, could have been
in attendance on him when he stood up
and opened his mouth in the Senate &
chamber on the Oth of March. ^
TWO HONORED HEROES. tl
McClellan and Hancock were the P
heroes of the two most consequential Jj
battles of the war?Antietam and Gettys- \}
burg, the loss of either of which would
have brought European recognition to *!
the Confederac\^ana darkness and dismay,
if not final dissolution. They had cl
commanded in the only battles fought 01
north of the Potomac, and each time had
met the enemies of an invading force,
strong, confident and flushed with recent
victories. Antietam and Gettysburg b
had involved the possession of the cap- fc
ital and the perpetuity of the Government,
and to McClellan and Hancock .
(now stigmatized as allies of the JJ
Confederacy) had been committed "
the measureless and awful trust j;
of defending and preserving them "
both. If asked hereafter where
were the greatest leaders of the Demo- ^
cratic party daring the war. (where the %
Democratic candidate of '64 for the Presi- ^
I lit. _ TV ?* l. I . Dl
uency, ana me uemonuic cancminie 01
'80 for the Presidency) the undulating
slopes of Antietam, and the crested '
height? of Gettysburg vould be pointed J:
to. He knew them both and he bowed
to their mighty shades. They were of
loftier mould than Greek or Roman history
supplied, The "warrior ranks of
Acnaia furnished not their peers, not ?
"the gold-flocked Achilles, nor the hiph- g
born son of Laertes, nor the wide-ruling ?
King Agamemon." And yet, he said, j
such were the peat soldiers who were j
mocked, scoffed and denounced as be- jj
longing to the subservient elements of
the North, and who were accused of treason
by those who were of the breed of
Job's war. horse and who (like him)
snuffed the battle afar off." J
mi sotrrnux uctsTiox. d
Leaving this subject, Mr. Voorheea Jj
passed to what he called the campaign tl
of political animosity declared against
the people of the South, their rights,
their security, and their good. name, o
The especial anger o( Republican leaders, p
he said, was excited because the vote of li
the N>uth in a national contest is solid ?
against their party. Would sobio one j
on the otheriidealthechamber tell him "
how the veto of Uic South could be C
Other than it was? The Republican I
party had once had political supremacy
from the Potomac to the
Rio Grande. It had elected Republican
Governors, State officers and legislatures
in every Southern State. It had
had the purse with which to oorrupt, the
sword with which to intimidate and the
Republican Congress and President to
enact and enforce all laws necessary for
the overthrow of individual and States
rights, and for the consolidation of its
power. It had seized upon the enfranchised
negro and sought to organize
and hurl him against the peace and security
of political ami social order, and
for a time, and in many instances, it had
succeeded.
Mr. Vorheeq proceeded to speak of the
recent preat development of the South,
and said she was snuply rising to her
manifest destin v. lie recited the achievements
of the democratic "party, and asserted
that but for the attitude and intlucnce
of Horatio Seymour, Thomas A.
Hendricks, Allen G. Thurman. William
Richardson and their political asso:iates
and followers during the war, not
>nly would the Union never have been
estored, but the dearest and most
lacred rights of American citizenship
rould have been swept away in the
itorin of partisan wrath which was most

le concluded by saying that the verdict
if the American people in November
rould be that there had been honest,
apable government, and that it should
? continued.
At the conclusion of Mr. Vorhees*
peech, which was delivered with great
ower and effect, and was listened to
rith interest and attention on both
ides of the chamber, he was congratuited
upon it by his Democratic assoiates.
The matter then went over.
In Ute Ilouau.
The Houso went into Committee of
le Whole on the tariff bill.
Mr. Byuum, of Indiana, said the bill
resented did not meet with his uuualified
approval. Ho believed that
uties on imports should be levied and
Elected and all times to meet the cur>nt,
ordinary expenses of the Govern- i
lent, and that any extraordinary excuses
should be met by a resort to in rnal
taxes.
Believing this to be correct, he would
taintain the present internal revenue
.-stem of taxation until the last obligaon
was discharged, but mindful of the
[versified interests of the country, he
as willing to come to the consideration
[ the bill in a spirit of concession and
jmpromise, and join in the construction
I a measure which yielded something
productions of every locality.
Mr. Browne, of Indiana, expressed
imself as not in the least frightened at
le plethoric condition of the National
reasury, that neither Johnson, nor
rant, nor Hayes, nor Arthur had
tade the condition of the Treasry
a pretense for disturbing the
fDCSTBIAL POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT.
The country continued to enjoy an
qparalleled prosperity. The accuuiuttion
of revenue might be made the ocision
for doing much for the people's
L'uefit. The national debt misht be
-adually paid off, the merchant marine t
light be Duilt up, harbor and coast de- t
nces might be constructed, a navv ,
light be provided commensurate with (
ir gloiy and gmndeur as a Nation, and ,
grateful jieonlo might tender to the ,
d soldiere who saved the country a ,
irting benediction.
Looking at the interval revenue sysiin
from a revenue standpoint there ,
as much to condemn in it, and if the
eople understood that the whisky tax
as kept in order that the protective
stem might be maintaineded, the
hisky tax would have to go.
Turning to the wool provisions of the
ill, he quoted figures to show that the
jmestic product had increased enoriousiv
under twenty years of protecon?had
grown from weakness into
rength, while, by the reduction of
aty by the act of the industry had
sen well nigh ruined. It was a little
ngular that while wool was put on the
ee list sugar was to be protected by an
mual tax of $15,000,000.
Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, said that
le surplus was required in the channels
[ business and trade and commerce in
rder that capital might employ labor,
id said that the question presented was
ow that surplus was to be disposed of.
Tould it be done by the making of
extbav ao ast appropriations?
He warned Congress that if it did not
nluce taxation that was the way in
hich the surplus would be got rid of.
here were on the calendars of the House
Mlay hundreds of measures which
ould never have been heard of had it
ot been that there was a surplus in the
rcasury. The Democratic party had
I ways been the friend of the laboring
inn onil if fhr? imnlil
low that their protective system
as beneficial to the workingmen of the
Duntry, he was willing to waive his obiction
to it. But they could not <lo so.
n the contrary many unprotected inustries
paid their employes higher
rages than were paid to laborers in the
roteeted establishments. He had stastics
to show the immense bonus which
je protective tarift' put into the i?ockct
f the manufacturer, but which did not
o into the pockets of the workingmen.
The Democratic party proposed to
ivor a revenue system which would
ive all the incidental protection which
le manufacturers needed but did not
ropose if it could avoid it to continue
system which levied an enormous
ribute on the agricultural States for the
enellt of the manufacturing States.
