Hundred! 1 of well known Republican! leathered to enjoy the hospitality of the club and to | take part in the reception to its gueits. ' The principal address waa made by ex- ' Bpetker Thomas & Reed, and when he ( row he waa received with an oration c that threatened to split the roof, He J mu obliged to wait several minutes befor be coald proceed. He said: "Onco daring the last session ot Congress, when the plans fortheDomocracy had become developed, I ventured to say to the leaders that when the peoplo of this country got at thorn in November of this year they would bury them ia trenches. This was nearly true, but there was a slight Inaccuracy. I should have said that we would bury them in trenches until the sunply of trenches gave out. . We could not bury them all, and 1 notice some ghosts of unburied bodies 'to and fro, flitttog burialess save in the vulture's craw/ have even reached Boston and are still hoarsely murmuring about 'froe raw materials' and foreign markets and such like topics of the under-world. UNEXPECTED THINGS. "Did it ever occur to you that if tho brightest man among you bad placed before him on March 4,1893, a sheet of white paper and bad been told to write down all the foolish things he would have likod to have tho enemy do in order to compass their own destruction, ho would have left out fifty ]>er cent of what they did? Is there anv one of vou that would I have dreamed of that which your I Massachusetts Democratic convon- J tion called tbo firm and vigorous J policy ot the administration? Could J any of you hare thought of that letter * to Wilson, and its railing accusation*)? 1 Did any one of you over picture the ^ chairman of the ways and means, with 1 his knees under British mahogany, re- } ceiving the plaudits of our businoss rivals for good norvico already tendered and better service expected? Did you <j over think of David B. Hill as candidate lor^govornor of Now York, and, as a necessary consequence, an unresident and homeless President? Had you ( anywhore hung in tho chambers of 1 fancy tho picture of a head without a ] party, nnd a party without a head? "Could you have imagined that after al! the warnings which rung ont from 1 all tbo industrial atatos at the electiona 1 which you celobrated a year aeo those i men would have gono on to crucify i American industries for anothor year? 1 OBBAT RESPONSIBILITIES. "Whon wo lost the country in 1890 j and 1802, the democracy meant mat wo should never find it again. In the years which followed, Eld ridge Gerry munt have sorlowed in hia. grave as he witnessed how the gerrymander'of modern times had outgorryed Gorrv. Oar victory was in despite of all that and also of the solid south?solid no longer, if it has any sense'of its own interests. "But wo have got something else to consider besides rejoicing. Victories bring responsibilities, and as I have pointed out to you, "our victory is so great it probably means responsibilities for many years. "Of those many years I shall not now ipeak, If wo have wisdom for two , years wo will be trusted for more?and i the wisdom for the next two yoars ' spomi to bo easy. We have neither the J President or the senate, and nil we can f do is to let tho country try the reaults J of tho folly of 1892. ( men's minds now keceptivb. 1 "IIow can wo utilize this victory, \ make it "permanent aad give to this ( country a return of the prosperity of i tho past times? In tho last two yoars 1 mon have soon the folly of all this 1 iliupant talk about tariff taxation, froo I raw material, inarnetsof tho world and J nil the other catch words which exhibit * tho wisdom of the parrot and tho declaimer instead of tho wisdom of the statesmen. They realize in a genoral way that thore is soundness in that uni- i voraal instinct whoroby each country demands that its people shall havo tlio first chinco to do thoir own work, and that overybody who is willing to labor shall havo employment at very (air wajjes. "What we noed now is not gonoral bolief iu otir doctrines. We nesd teaching which comes from practical results. When I say to yon that protection will cheapen goods aud mako hotter goods, you may yield asiont, but it may not bo a fighting faith. But when I show, by facts and litjuros, that ground glass, for exaraplo, though raised a hundred per cent by tho Mclvinley tarilf*, haa roached almost the samo prico us beforo, and tho conaumor gots American glnss worth 20 por cent inoro, and overy inch of it tnnde by Ainorican labor, it shows something which is an over* present nniwor to all tho thoorios of tho world.

The total paper circulaion reached its highost point in May ast, when it' stood at $1,175,000,000. ?inco then there has been a slight conraction, caused chiefly by the gradual odemption and retirement of gold ceriflcates, the issue of which was suslended, as tho law requires, when the :old reserve of tho treasury fell below 5100,000,000. To tho end of Soptember ast the total redemption of United States notes in gold since the resumpinn of snoeio navmontfl were $181,800. 100, and the total redemptions ot treaslry notes in sold from their first issuo vera $68,500,000.

Washington, D. 0., No*. 22.?The uninese nave ioss tne nneas ana moit powerful vessel o? their navy?the groat battleship Ohea Yuon, which stood tho braat of the fighting at YaIo. The news came to the nary department in a cablegram received to-day. It states that tho Chen Yuen io leaving Wei liai Wei harbor on the 18th inst, accidentally atruck a torpedo. She was beached, bat was rendered useless for lack of docking facilities. In despair at tho cataatrophe, the commander, Commodore Lin, committed suicide. The Chen Yuen was a magniflcont fighting machiuo very much like our own battleship Maiue. Sho was built in Europe in 1882 and waa of 7,430 tons displacement. It would appear from tho facta in the cable that the ship fell a victim to one of the torpedoes planted by the Chinese themiolvea to guard the entrance to Woi Hai Wei, which was the last of the great naval strongholds of the ompire aava Port Arthur, now tottering to its falL It was at well that Commodore Lin committed suicide for he would doubtless have been decapitated as the result of his error. It ia believed here that this loaa has deprived the Chinese navy of its offensive power. There remains the Ting Yuen, anothor powerful batiloahip, and few lesser ironclads, but without the aid of the Chen Yuen they would hardly dare to make an oflensive campaign and probably will remain in ports to assist in the dslenso. PEACE MAY COME. United States Ministers! Authorized to Transmit Chlnn's Proposals to Japan. Interesting Sow* From the Seat of War. Washington, D. 0., Nov. 22.?In accordance with a suggestion of Japan, the state department has notified Minister Dun, at Tokio, and Mr. Denby, at Pekin, to transmit each direct ofler as China may wish to make to Japan. As tho cable directions were sent Tuesday, sufficient time has not elapsed to determine whether Chins will consent to make an olfer direct and definite as Japan insists must be done. The Chinese legation here is not notified as to whatoourso its government will take. An Associated rress came irom japnn states, however, that China has intimated her willingness to pay an indemnity of 100,000,000 taels and in addition pay all the war expenses incurred by Japan. As the war expenses reach 160,000,000 taels, the total offer of China would be 250,000,000 taels. The tael is a Chinese silver coin worth about 75 cents at the present exchange, so that the wholo payment would bo approximately $175,000,000. The amount is regarded here as quite largo, and it is believed arrangements betweon the two nations could bo affected on terms providing (or a smaller war indemnity. Diplomats hero say that uudor ordinary circumstances it would take some time for China to formally present its oiler to Minister Denby, but owing to the fact that the Japaneao are now at the walls of Fort Arthur, about to malto the last blow at China's irroatoat fortress, it is anticipated that China may hurry the negotiations to a conclusion. It is ?*fiAc?nd that Minister Donbv inav transmit tho ollor by telegraph to Tien Tain audSnanghai, and thence bv cable to Yokohama. The understanding ia that China and Japan will pay the expenses of the Amoricaa ministers incident to the negotiation. The advance on Port Arthur is regarded as having an important bearing on the peaco negotiations. Lieutenant Miyoka, naval attache to the Japanese legation here, says tho advance movement has been most cautious, as the cround (or forty milefl around I'ort Arthur haa been found fairlv alivo with powder minos collected with electric wires to Port Arthur. Three days ngo the Japanese wero within a day's march of the fortress, but it was 'necessary to send ahead small scouting parties to pick a routo a way from the ininos and olectric wires. The regular rouds could not bo used for the artillery, as it would have boon blown up, and accordingly the big guus have had to bo moved in circuitous routes through woods aud morass. It is rogarded as likely this cautious march will bavo boon comfilotod to-day, and tho Japaneio location s hourly expecting word that the decisive blow has boon struck, though a long siogo rnuy bo necessary, as the fortress has ono of the strongest do* .fennosof modern times. It is believed that a Japanoso succots would quickly closo tho peuco negotiations, but that a repulse would impel China to hold oil furtnor. ______ A Hcpurted Hull I o.

He haa been tho party leader for two campaigns and haa worked hard. Besides he ia a brainy man with large interoata in Weat Virginia and would make a first class senator to represent the atate. H. C. Peterman?8. B. Elkina by all meana. Wo owe it to him aa a party; that'H my opinion. George W. Kobinson?I don't think there has been anybody in it but Elkins from the staru I am for Elkina first, laat and all the time. John Schellhoso? I have been too busy to thick much abont it, but I am fnf Ktankan 11 I'ltina Charles T. Keed?That's who I am for too. Ian'tevery body? J. K. Hull?I am for Mr. Elkins all the time, and 10 far aa I have heard all the party workers seem to want him elected. I notice that all theie other people who are now out for seuator kept very quiet about it until after the .Republicans won the fight. Mr. Elkins, on the contrary, fought what moit people thought was a losing fight, and there ia no fair man will not concede him the position. 1 should be very aorry to seo any member of the Ohio county delegation at Charleston opposed to Mr. Elkins. li. C. Merer?lam most emphatically for Mr. Elkins. I spent several daya in the Second district, and I saw who was making the fteht there, as woll as all over the state, and I saw also what a hard fight it was. It would be unjust to Mr. Elkins not to elect him. W. W. Rogers?Elkins should be senator. Bo worked harder than anyone else for party aucceBs and for that reason, outside of his known fitness, should receive the honor. Had we been beaten no one would havo contested with him for the empty honor of the Republican caucus nomination. Commander F. Ii. Crairo?I had not thought of any but Mr. Elkins. It ia my opinion that General Go IF cannot oll'ord to enter the senatorial fight at this time under the circumstances. While I think highly of the ability of the other gentlemen mentioned in connection with thesenatorsbip, Mr. Elkins deserves to receive the caucus nomination. Dr. B. D. Morrison?I am in favor of God first, then Elkins, though 1 do not believe that Genersi Goff will enter the I fnr ?hn aunntnraliin lit thi? limn If j ' ho dooa wont it I favor him because of I tho invaluublo services bo rendered the | party in the past. \V.

Richard Itobortaon?1 think that Elkins will be elected, beyond a doubt, if I woro a representative I should feel that I ought to voto for him. If 1 were thorn aud know that iny voto would elect N. K.
