Faibmoxt, W. Va., Oct. 10. ? Tho
nesting hold here to-night was successfol
boyoad the wildest expectations of
the local managers. Long before tho
tioo for the meeting to be callod to or*
der the opera house was packed full,
and the streets near by crowded with
people, who were forced to eo homo
without hearing any of tho rousing lie*
pablican truths presented with the utmost
clearness and force by lion. S. B.
Ellcioa, Promptly at 8 o'clock, County
Chairman Showalter callod the meeting
to order, and in a brief but telling address
called upon lion. John W. Mason
to take cbargo 01 toe meeting.
Mr. Mason then procoeded to introduce
to the mooting tho spoakor of the
evening. lion. S. U. Elkins, who waa
givon an ovation seldom tendered any
one by the citizens of Marion county.
Cheer upon cheer waa given as he aroae,
and his apeech waa listened to eagerlv,
and applauded heartily all through.
Among other thinga ho said:
MR. BLKINS HPBBCn.
I thank you, gentlemen, for this magniGcent
audience and for tbo jyaceful
tribute tendered by Mr. Mason, and I
shall endeavor to discuss tbo situation
in a business like manner and from the
facts just aa I bolieve all matters of bua*
inosa should be settled. The importance
of this campaign ia creator I believe
than that of any campaign sinco
tbo war. We havo tbo groat quoation
of free trade on trial, something never
before tried; a dangorous and hazardous
oxperimont, the facta and statistics
show to be advorse to our best intercats.
We were living under a system of
laws, until the passaeo of this new tarifl
bill, for thirty years, that has made us
the most prosperous notion on the face
of tho earth, and this bill is a now ays*
tem fraught with danger and our prosperity
is menacod. I cannot believe
that the policy which gave us thirty
yeara of prosperity is wrong, and freo
trado is at host an exporimont which
baa always been provon to be dangorous
and hurtful in tho extreme to tbo business
interests of tho country. Let us
all as good citizens, Republicans and
Democrats, examine this question as
partners and diacusa it in a business
like way and soo which Bystom ia for
our own beat interests.
Tim niunt.T on* pnnTi?rrio>a.
Dtiring tho thirty years of Republican
rule the figures show that manufnctares
increased six-fold, farming inter'
osts three-fold, wages eevon-told and
savings twelvo-fold. We hnvo to-day
fi?o times tho aavinj?B in this, a comparatively
new, country as has England,
comuries old. We paid the expenses of
tho war and our wealth to-day is $109
for overy man, woman and child in this
country, and I cannot aoe that a system
which shows such results can be bad.
Bat what can the Domocrata show?
Nothing. Thoy claim that protection
was not tho causo of this, that tho tariff
laws aro robbory and unconstitutional.
How can that be whoa such laws were
the corner stonoof our government, and
tiie question was never ovon thought of
from Washington to JackBon and nevor
soriously raise! until four years ago.
AN Bit A Of I'ltOSI'ERITY.
A comparison of tho exports for the
yoars of tho Harrison administration
with tho McKinley bill and tho past
year of Democratic rule show our ox*
ports were increased $275,000,000 and
reached the highest point in tho history
o( tho country. Wages wore higher,
and under tho McKinloy law tho country
enjoyed tho greatest ora of prosperity,
as groat as tho depression which
set in under tho inisrulo of Grovor
Cleveland and the Dotrocracy.
In 1802 Democrats wero successful by
making falso promises to all parties.
Tho wostern man was to havo Bilver,
the New York capitalist froe coal and
timber, Populists to havo free Btato
banks, Tammnny was in lino, and
marching under tho banner of tariff
reform with promises of spoils and
ollices, ovory section wa* tnkon in,
overy nationality and tho anarchist
element wore welcomod with promises
that tho existing ordor of things should
bo changed. NVhoat was to bo worth
Si 50 pur bushel, wool 45 conts per
pound. Wages wore to go up and
prices to go uown; tho samo old story
the/ had boon tolling for thirty yoars,
which, strange to say, was believed.
Now let us argue fair. I was novor
accused of unfair argument by anyouo
in tho stato of West Virginia, oxcopt by
the editor of tho Whooling Register.

Clovoland? Wero tho promises kopt?

which will net them ?35,000,000 at t!
expenao of our coal fields. Mr. Wils
nover gives facts, but deals in glittori
generalities, eomething to come, b
something which you can never p
your hand upon. The New Dominii
Coal Company can deliver coal to B<
ton markets now one dollar cheaper p
ton than West Virginia operators, ai
our markets are gono. Tobacco, liquoi
laces and ombroiderioa, ostrich feathc
and kid gloves are made cheaper. Ti
tariff is reduced on all these articl
used so extensivoly by tho poor ma
and our coal, wool and timber must
givon up.

Nsw York, Oct. 10.?Hon. Levi I
Morton, Republican nominee (or gov
ernor, to-day sent hie formal letter o
acceptance to Hon. Warner Millet
chairman of the Bepnblican state con
vention.
it is in tho main as follows:
RuiNBCLiFr, N, Y? October 9, 1894.
Hon. Warner Miller, Chairman of the Republtca
State Contention:
but:?I havo boen officially informet
within tho past fow days of my nomi
nation for eovernor by tho conventioi
over which yon presided at Saratoga.
Grateful for past recognition and fo
this friendly evidence of thoir confl
dence, I accopt tho trust the Republi
cun party has honorod me with, pond
ing my hoarty co-operation in thei
efforts for an honest and efficient cou
duct of affairs.
Tho platform adopted by that body i
a just, but tomperaio arraignment o
the Democratic party, now for tHe firs
timo in many years in full control c
all branches of tbo national adminis
tration.
Tho issues involved in the pendin
canvass aro clearly dofined and of pars
mount importance.
During the whole period of its exist
ence the Republican party has beei
distinguished for its devotion to th
principle of protection to home produc
tions.
The last Republican administrate
had given statutory expression to th
American doctrino that duties shouli
be laid upon foroign products compel
ing with llko articles of home procluc
tion, and that articlos exclusively pre
duced abroad and not so competin:
should bo admitted free for the boned
of tho consumera. After tho pasaace o
this law tho nation was at the summi
of its greatnoss and prosperity, with it
name respected throughout the eart!
and penco and plenty iu ail its domain
It is not claimed that this statute, an
more than any other human ordinanc
was perfect in its details, but tho mod
ifications suggested by time and oxpei
ionco should havo been loft to th
trieuda of tho measure.
Peril to American industries was an
nounced in the chance of administrr
tion. The menace alone which its ad
vent heralded was sufficient to still th
looms, to darken tho furnaces, to clo
,tho whole of business, and to precip
tnto a tinancial doprossion unparallele
in our annAls for severity and duratioc
The menacc, with its* accompanyin
unrest and disaster, endured through
out oightoen months, in which a Demc
cratic Congross sought to undo tha
which had boen so woll nccompliahei
by its Republican predecessors; and i:
spite of tho repeal o( the silver purchat
ing clause of tho so-callod Shorman aci
which was only rendered possible by th
aid of the Kcpublican party, it was evi
dont that permanent relief would nc
como while the stability of our indui
tries was throatened.
A measure was enacted false alike t
the prompting of true Americanism am
to the professions of tho Democrati
party. The bill which originally pasae
tho houfio of representatives had, a
least, tho merit ot consistency in aom
degree with tho anto-election promise
made to tho people dv tno uemocrau
national * convention. But tbo
which finally prevailed is
thine of incongruities, a patcfc
work of protection and free trade, c
protection to favored localities and o
nurtnro to trusts, but of hostility to th
masses of thp workintrmen of tho lane
Kopudiated by its principal fratnei
characterized by the Democratic Presi
dent as a bill of perfidy and dishonoi
denounced by tho signature of the Pree
idont, proclamation is already mad
that it is only tho beginning of tho at
tack which will bo persisted in upoi
American wage-earners.
In the confusion of Democratic coun
cils and tho porversity of Domocrati
legislation, it is plain that the only wis
course for tho country topuiauoist
restore the management of its aflairs t<
that party which for thirty years ha
doveloped its resources, upheld its gooi
faith, cared for those who fought for it
integrity, and guardod tho rights am
fortunes of its citizons.
Tho writer thon turns from nationa
to stato issuos and in conclusion Mr
Morton says:
I desire to omphasizi my hoart]
concurrence in tho provisions of tin
platform of tho 8aratoga convention
wherein tho party pledeoa to tho peo
pie a freo ballot and a fair count, prac
