Following Is an abstract of Sonator Hill's epoech: 8ENATOB HILL'S SPEECH. Tbo nnterriflod Domocracy of tho empire stato assemble hero to-day, undismayed by the promaturo boasts nnd assumed confidence of our advorsarios. Wo aro not unaccustomed to tbolr annual and rooss-cornrod eamo of political bind; although ronewod this yoar with extraordinary vohemanco and unblushing affrontery. Tho unexpected victory of our opponents last fall has turnod their hoads and rondorod thorn arrogant and opinionated. They fail to recall tho fact that tho total voto pollod was nearly uuu.uuu short of tbs fait voto ol tho stato, a victory which thoy thomsolves did not anticipate, and whloh their surprised and a9tuto leaders tho next day after olectlon humorously attributod to Divine Providence and not to Hnpablican strength. With a united Nomocracy and a full voto Now York is still a Democratic state, and, if wo aro truo to ourcolvoi, will this year rosumo hor place in tho Democratic column. Our oppononte, by tho vigorous boating of bogus political tom-toms and tho insistence upon potty and misleading local isauos, Book todivort tho public air tontion from tho nuonviablo record which they made during tboir recent four yoars control of tho fodoral govornmont. Tho pooplo, howovor, havo not forgotten tho fact that it was a Kopubllcan administration which in that illfntod vnnr of 1890 saddlod tho country with "uuwiso and vicious legislation, which hn* sinco cripplod its prosperity, ondangorod its tlnancoa und augmontod its public burdens. RANK DKMAOOOUY. It should bo borno in mind that tho financial panic of 1803 was a Republican panic?Iiopnblican in its incoption, continunuco and disastrous otfoct?a situation largely induced by tho results then existing and irapouding of that Kepui>licun legislation, which a Democratic administration had no lot or parcel in enacting, sanctioning or conducting, but which is only, fortunatoly, inhoritod from its predecessor. Tho pooplo rocolloct that it was under a national Democratic administration that tho Shorman law wa> ropealed, not as promptly as somo of us desirod, it is truo, but novortholess unconditionally repoalod within eight mouths after our advent to powor. Wo promisod tho pooplo in our Chicago platform that this statute, which was eating out the vitals of our financial |k body politic, ihoald not bo permitted to ondure, and the promise ni redoomed, despite the advene prediction* of oar adversaries. We alio declared in favor of the repeal of that lust relic of post-bellum partiaan legislation known aa the federal eloctioni lair, which Invaded atate rights, menaced the liberties ol the citizen, multiplied fodoral ofllcials, involved the expenditure ol millions of monov, continued sectional animosities and wore as ill-conceived, unneoosaarr aud impotent for tho provontion of fraudulaut practices and tho promotion of puro elections as they wore vexatious and ollonslvo in their enforcement. A LI, HAIL TO PREEDOM ?0R PRAL'n. I point you to the fact that the Democratic party although entrenched for four years with tho distribution of all tho olBcial patronage incident to the execution of theso powerful laws, yot with patriotic self sacrifice doliborately cast aildo all tho power, inlluenco and pa trouago iuvolvod thoroin, subordinating temporary solfish iatoroat to tUo public good, wipod those ckIIoub laws from tho statute books within the Hist your of oar administration and ut the ensuing congressional elections will be wltnoaaed lor tbo first tirno in twentytour yeara stato elections conducted as they of right ought to bo, without federal interference, dictation or intimidation?without federal supervisor*, taaraliala or other obnoxious ioderal agents or instruinontalitiea, but with state officials solectod or choson by tbo pooplo themselves according to state laws and usages, for an exemplification of tbo principle of homo rule in statos, and a vindication of tho doctrino of the sovereignty of tho etatoe as it was roeognized by our fathers from the foundation of our government until that evil day in the sixties when tbo Republicans, although a minority party, owiile to our own divisions, accidentally obtainod control of tho oountry. Wo rojoice that witb Democratic national ascendancy tho country consistently returns to tho simple methods, tho sound principles and tbo correct administration of public olficoa which characterized tho earlier and bettor davs of tho republic. THE OLD CRY. Tho onactmont of the McKinloy tariff law was the culminating atrocity of Republican recklessness in legislation; bo extrome, so selfish, so unreasonable, that I hazard nothing in assorting that conservative and fair-minded Republicans everywhere rogretted tho party exigencies which soomod to domand its passage. It was tho very personification of protection ran mad. Throwing off all disguises, it was tho inauguration of a huge schomo of governmental partisanship with prlvato business interests. The reaction which soon followed in thoeloctions of 1890 and reiterated in 1802, was tho natural and legitimate expression of the popular indignation at tho party which had baselv surrendered to tho mercenaries within its own ranks, and had barterod away the public good for selfish greod. The right of taxation, whioh is only lliaiiuoa ior purposes OI revenue, waa improperly invoked to promote the intorosts of bnsiueaa favoritism and the grand old doctrino cherished by our fathors, that the legislation of the country should bo frnmod so as to Bubservo tho greatest good for tho greatest number, was wholly ignored, spurnod and repudiated. Wo promised tho peoplo that if intrusted with powor this vicious, un-American and objoctionable law should bo repealed, and we rejoice to-day in the fulnllraent of that plodgo. Tho McKinloy law has gono whoro tho woodblno twinoth, gone to stay, nevor to bo re-onacted again by any political party. It is true that thoro was a vexatious and unfortunato delay which wo required, occasioned in part by tho antiquated rulos of tho Benate, which tolerated unlimltod debate?rules which wo did not frame, but which we inhorltod, and which by roason of our slonder majority wo seemed unable to cliango, but which, I trust, in tho near future will bo ab rogatod; bat tbo fact should bo romoinborod that the record shows that wo occnpiod less timo by aoino months to repealing the law than our oppononta took in enacting it in 18D0. THIS IS XOT TRUE. Tho depression or disturbance in business which necossarily accompanios any goneral tariti revision was, of course, to bo regretted, but I call tho attention of tho country to tbo fact, not goriorally understood, that no mattor which political party won in 1802, thoro would havo boon a tariff rovlsion, necessarily and inovitably so?bocauao tho McKinlev law had broken down, had callapaed, and had provod uttorly inadequate to moot the nocossitios of tho govornmont and to furnish its roquirod rovonuus. Tho McKinloy tariff unties bad boon plnced ao high as to bo largoly prohibitory iu thoir effect and the necessary rovouuos woro not forthcoming, and upon tho advent of tho proBent national administration to powor wo woro comroniou WISH u virmun/ uuuivrapt treasury, and tho doflcit was dally increasing. TITE NEW TAniFP LAW. Roforring to tho now tariff bill, Sonator Ilill said: I sponk lor this now law (unsatisfactory though it may bo to mo in soino respects, bocatiso of tho objections which 1 urged in tho souato, which it is not now nvisablo or necessary to roitorato), tho pationt consideration of a fair trial to which, in common fairness, it is ontitlod. Tho country should understand that another gonoral or oxtcnsivo tariir revision is not con torn plated by tho Democratic party now or in tho near future. This determination, howover, doos not procludo tho dosirability of redeeming, by tho passajjo of soperato bills, whatever plodgo* wo havo made in our platform or othorwiso, for froo raw materials, or tho rcadjnstmout of any objoctionablo sugar bohqdule. lioyond thin, it is not wise to go much furthor at this time, unless tho unforseen nocossitioa of tho troasury or tho changed conditions of tho country shall warrant or imporativoly doinnnd it. This is holiovod to bo tho truo path to puritio and tho correct position to noHumoat this critical junctnroof public n(fairs.

Asserts that the now tarifl law will bo wlso and excellent substitute for the partisan McKinley bill and as a whole will help tbo people and tho country. KUMAltKABU; CUAItGU Agntnat a Government Clerk?II" Signs Away Another fttnn'n Property, With tho AMldtanceof the Lnttor'K Wife. Wasuixqtom, Soot. 25.?Aloxandor A.

Oldborg rnakoa flomo rornarliablo chargo* against Kussoli, Sovoral years ago Oldborg purchased property at Bennings, a suburb of tbo city, said to bo worth $10,000. About throo months ago ho made tho discovery that tho land had boon sold to satisfy a trust docd. His wife's and his own namo were signed to tbo dood. 'Theso aro my wife's signatures but not mino," Mr. Oldborg allogos. Mrs. Oldberg wroto a letter to the commissioner of pensions confessing her complicity in tho atlair. Sho is a clork in tbo ponsion offlco and occupied a dosk noxt to that of Major Russell, who, it is assorted, often lont money to tho clerks. Ono day when a creditor callod at tho ollico to press Mrs. uidDerg lor payment of a debt, Major Russoll, she aaya, euscgoHtod that she make out a deed of truat for $300 on her husband's property and be would got tho money. lie wont with her to a notary, roprosonting himaolf aa Mr. Oldborg, and signed Oldborg'a uamo to tbe trust doed and got tho $300 on it from a money lender. Later, Mrs. Oldberor alleges, Rnaeell came to her to borrow money, and it was raised by similar truat deeds, Russell oach time signing Oldborg'a full name. The total amount tliua raiaod is said to bo $7,800. Thoro is a very close roaemblanco betwoen the two inon, Russoll and Oldberg, tbo likenoas being strong enough to have boon a subject of romark. Mrs. Odlborg's letter of confession to tho commiasionor of ponsions was written sovoral months ago, wbon her husband llrst learnod of tho loss of his property nnd was investigating it. Later ahe wrote anothor lottor, retracting her formor statement as to Russell having signed hor husband's namo to tho trust deeds. Tho notaries boforo whom tho signatures woro attested havo partially identified Russoll as tho man who made thom. Russell declares tho affair a conspiracy and donies tho whole atory, though admitting that ho loaned a small amount to Mrs. Oldborg sovoral years ago.

[Cheers.] Tho last two yours have boon years of distrosa and disastor. The lossoa of them dofy tho skill of tho calculator. It has boon said, and I think not without reason, that they oxcood the cost of tho great civil war. Tho groat national losses, like those of tho great civil war, lmvo soraotiraos their adequate compensations. Great as was tho coat of the war for tho union, wo fool that it was adequately componsatod in tho added tflory that was given to tho flag, and in tho added security that was givon to our civil institutions and the unity of tho nations. [Cheers.] But tho loasoa of tho last two years havo no such compensating thought. TUB DEMOC RATIC TAHIFF. I think that I remember to hare hoard onco of an inscription upon a tombatono that ran something like this: "I was woll; I thought to bo bettor; I took modicino, and hero I lio." [Laughtor and applauao]. Our Democratic frionda havo paaaorl a tariff bill that is approvod?so far aa I can loarn?bv six Democratic sonatora and by nobody elflo [Lflushtor].

[Applause.] Mr. Clovoland has repudiated it, and has doclarod that it involves porfidy and dishonor, that it waa so shameful in its character and in tlio influencoa that produced it that ho would not ovon put his name to it. All of tho leading Democratic papora in tho country have condomnod it?both of tho old atalwurt variety and of tho mugwump variety. Tho Democratic chairman of tho way a and means coinmittoo had condomnod it, and tho ontiro Democratic majority in tho houso of roprosontativos. Now that is a groat mister tuna. it ia miafortuno that tho Domocratic party was not nblo to ovolvo a tarill bill that that party would accopt ana sottlomontof tho taritl quoation. woilse to comb.

Wo)I, to bo euro, tho McKinloy bill was u law until that 29th day of Aunnat when tho Ger* man bill won p?8?i*d; but it was a law only in numo. It hud boon arrqatod. Wo woro liatoninjj from clay to day to prophocioa thot in two wooIch or throo or four it would bo rcpoulod. It wan not a law in tho eonao that auy inorcbant or wanufacturor could act upon It. It was doad, in a business sense, though alive ou statute book. Why, sir, it would be just as reasonable to complain of a muu who had been siezod, handcuffed and locked up in a coll, for non-supporting his family as to complain that tho McKinloy bill did not give prosperity during this period of suaponso. And then we are told that under tho McKinloy bill the prico of wool went down? and since it has boon in ado froe it is going up; that sugar ou the free list was higher than sugar with a forty per oont duty. And all this notwithstanding the old Democratic doctrine that duty was always added to tho cost of tho domestic article.
