THE OTTAWA FREE TRADER, SATURDAY. OCTOBER 27, 1888.
5 THE REPUBLICANS. Ge4 Crowd and m Tmlt Proeslo oa Thursday, SfMiMU of tfpsweh. Thursday u ont of the fineet d.yi In tb month of October, mild, mellow and railing. It h tho reverse of tbe dy the democrat were greeted by, cod'te fare weather could out figure, it wu obvioui thai the republican daj would not be an infant. Delegatione from the eurrounding territory came by train . and on horee, while thoee who came merely to tee the town were numerous. By noon the itreeta were lined with nattering atrangers, and at half past two, a Urge and well ordered procession, eeoorted Senator Cullom and Capt. Hill, candidate for congress, to the park. A thousand people listened to Senator Cnllom, whose speech was of the regular republican variety. He dodged the tariff issue as to its main features, and confined himself to a ridicule of the Mills bill and ancient history. The 11 Golden Period," between the passage of the Walker tariff bill and the Morril tariff, received special attention. In those days he had seen his father sell corn for ten cents per bushel, wheat for forty cents, and cattle at eight dollars per head. This, said he, was the "Golden Era of Free Trade." When the democratic party went out ol power it left the treasury deplet ed and the republican party found itself with a war on its hands and no money. To-day we are a satisfied people, and the happiest on earth He went into a clothing store in Washing ton and asked for a ten dollar suit, on the morning of his tariff speech, and when he came iBto the Senate chamber the senators called him a dude. (He'wore English broad cloth on Thursday). Suppose you had to .pay twenty dollars for a suit? Suppose the tariff on a suit like it was two dollars, an d you paid twenty-two dollars for it here? Was it not better to pay two dollars more and keep the money in America for Ameri can workmen than to send it abroad and feed foreign paupers? The democrats wanted to reduce the tariff on steel rails. The tariff was now so low that the rail men made no money. He was in favor of pro tection and the democrats wanted free trade. The claim that the democracy had restored thousands of acres of public land to the peo ple was false. The republicans had done it, and the democrats had had nothing to do with it. He shook out the folds of the traditional bloody shirt, and said that Presi dent Cleveland had cruelly and heartlessly vetoed pension bills, the applicants for which were poor and starving, and needed the money very much. Mr. Cullom's audience, numbering over a thousand people, many of whom were school ohildren, all the schools having been dis missed, was attentive, notwithstanding his poor voice, and cheered frequently. Mr. Cullen, master of ceremonies, then intro duced Capt. Hill, candidate for representa tive. The captain, who was very nroey and dry, had the same audience at the beginning of his speech. He started in to describe the several tickets, and when be got as far as Belva Lockwood half his audience had dispersed. He then bewailed the fact that President Cleveland had accepted a second nomination, and two hundred people heard him. Then he told of the democrats turning republican officeholders out, and his audi ence dwindled down to fifty. When tbe eaptain finally closed, he had not more than a baker's doten out of the entire thousand. The evening found nearly eight thousand people on the streets, and the sidewalks, from Washington Park to the bridge, on La Salle street, was a perfect jam. The pro cession was a long time in forming, and it was not until nearly nine o'clock that tbe Marshal and his aids, at its head, moved upon La Salle etreet. It was nearly six blocks in length, and considerably longer than the democratic parade, the arrange . Kent of the columns, all marching in open order to nearly the full width of the street, made it appear to contain many more torches. Delegations were present from Streator, La Salle, Peru, Mendota, Joliet, Morris, Mar seilles, Grand Ridge, Sheridan, Meriden, Prairie Center, Troy Grove, Earlville and Freedom. Nearly every club had its band or drum oorps, and the din made by the dotens of horns and drums was deafening. The features of tbe parade were the Tippe- oanoe club of this city, the Flambeau club of Mendota, and the mounted club, log cabia and sheep exhibition from Grand Ridge. The two clubs drilled very well. The parade was confined wholly to La Salle street, where it marched and counter-marched for half an hour. At its olose a very pretty display of Roman candles and rockets at either end of the etreet lighted the htavens for fifteen minutes. It was a very fine parade. The crowd was loth to-leave the streets, but after a while speaking began in Wash ington Park, the Opera House and Turner Hall. The crowd in the park numbered about 2,000 people, and after some delay, Mr, Cullen introduced Hon. Thomas Cratty, of Chicago. Mr. Cratty seemed intoxicated when he started in to speak, and alternately placed his hat on his head and removed it for half minute. He then rubbed his head and becoming suddenly excited, pulled off his overooat and a,wadea in." He said that the democrats had howled about the surplus He thanked God that there was a surplus, He said that before we had a tariff "old Jim Buchanan" and the south had depleted the treasury and left us in the hands . of the enemy. We get together, put on a tariff, and "like magic the plow started in the furrow; like magic the wheels began to revolve in the factories, pauper labor stopped coming into the country," and we today are the best, the wealthiest, the sassiest and the brassiest people on the earth. Tbe democrats said hat the tariff was a tax and the people had to pay it. It was not so. The tariff was not a tax. What was a tax? Why the assessor comes around and assesses your property and the oolleotor collects lU It eant go above so many oenta apoa the hundred dol lart. That's a tax. The tariff is sometimes ten. sometimes twentyfive.fifty or a hundred per cent. We raise and lower it; sometimes it is high and sometimes it is very low. why, the democrats say thai if tho people knew how much tariff they were paying they would rebel. So you would if you paid It. Why suppose the assessor would tax a horse worth $100, $60 a year. Wjy the third year what would you pay taxes on? You had better have shot the brute in the first plaoe. Its absurd. You dont pay the tar iff, the other fellow pays it on the other side of the sea." The Streator Ke Club, whose voices blend perfectly, closed the meeting with a republican song, when Mr. Cratty had spoken about an hour. Hon. B. C. Cook occupied the stage at the Opera House, but had a very slim audienoe, of not over two hundred and fifty. His speeeh was a resume of the war and the days before the war. He did not touch present issues. He did not think that the party whloh had done so much for the country would be superseded by a party that was tearing it down, as it was now. The repub licans were standing by the government and the democrats were trying to pull it asunder. A party with such men as Lincoln, Grant and Garfield in its ranks, could not be su perseded by a party containing such men as Cleveland, Tburman and their followers. Hon. Ralph Plumb discussed finance in Turner Hall. He suid that instead of there being over one hundred millions of surplus funds in the treasury when President Cleve land ook the chair, there was but eight. The democrats refused to buy bonds for the first 14 months and allowed the surplus to reach $79,000,000. But the three and a half per cent bonds were paid afterward. Then tbe four and four and a-half's came next. They were paid, or some of them. He had a belief that the government had a right to call in all bonds without premiums, bnt he hadn't time to explain his theory. His audience was very small. Taken as a day, the rally was a success in all respects, the procession being by far the principle feature. There were about 1,800 people, including bands in line, and the marching was very credible. Obituary, Minsis Hibbs, daughter of Lacy and Mary Hibbs, died on Monday, Oct. 22, 1888' at 5 :50 p. u , aged 23 years 10 months and 19 days. By her death a large circle of relatives and friends mourn the loss of one who was worthy of all praise bestowed. Of a quiet and unassuming disposition, she had endear ed herself to her friends and by her fidelity in all duties had gained their confidence and esteem, as well as their warm affeotlon. She will be missed, not only in the home circle, but by the Presbyterian churoh, of whiah she was a consistent member; by the Sunday school of Yale M. E. church, of which she had been for some years the effi cient secretary and treasurer; by a host of classmates and schoolmates of the North western Normal, where she was educated; by her pupils in tbe day school who always found her an affectionate friend ; and, be sides these, by a large number of acquain tances. But all can rest in the assurance that their loss is her gain, for the Saviour, whom here she loved and followed, now sheds on her tbe undimmed light of His countenance and the rest and peace of the heavenly 'home are her's. Hid beneath the daises' bloom, Are Minnie's dreamy eyes; But far above her lonely tomb, Her home ia in the skies. She was our darling and our pride, The joy of every heart, Was like a sunbeam at our side, That did with her depart. 8he came to bless us for a while, With sunshine, love and mirth, With heart so pure and free from guile Too pure oud good for earth. She's roaming now with angels bright, Who tread the other shore; They took her from our home and sight, With us to dwell no more. When spring birds wake us with their song At morning, noon and night, 'Tis always then we sigh and long For Minnie's smllo so bright; But most we miss her form at eve, When twilight gathers near, Then to our hearts dark shadows cling That bring tbe silent tear. Sweetly slumper, angel Minnie, We will not disturo thy rest, Dreamy eyes are closed forever, She is with the blest. The funeral was attended by a large con course of people who met to pay their last regrets to our departed friend. The floral offerings were very beautiful, consisting of offerings from the M. E. Sunday School, the Ladies' Missionary Society of the Presbyter, ianchnrch and from the family. A FaiiKD. Without permitting a charge of hypoc risy, the Free Trader pleads regrets In having descended to calling names in the trifling controversy with Mr. Allen, be cause, as in all such cases, despite the temptation to do so, It weakens the argu ment, and because for Mr. Allen personally we have a special regard as a thorough gentleman and good neighbor; but as Mr, Allen has, to his own satisfaction, at least, convicted us of bad Latin, and shown the terrible results of "calling names" upon a weak intellect, such as ours, .no doubt he will agree to forgive ua. The burden of Mr. A.'s complaint Is that Mr. Stevenson said "the tariff is always a tax oo the con sumer," Mr. Allen contending that the tar iff is not a tax. There is simply no use trying to argue such absurdity. If the tar Iff does not give tbe manufacturers an ad vantage as to prices, It Is no protection and would be of n om to him as protection. The fact that he does not la all cases and at all times get the lau nenent oi it, doe nc effect the argument whatever. The Free Trader bowed last week that the price of steel rails averaged, In 188T, f 18.43 (only 53c less thaa the duty) higher in America than In England. Mr. McKInley announced in his speech In reply to Mills that on one contract for 2,000 army blankets the Amer ican cost was $606 greater than the Eng lish. It is simply an absurdity to say the tariff adds nothing to the cost of the home product; and after this campaign Is over, when Mr. Allen sets down to calmly study this question, he will, we venture to say, satisfy his conslence with some other apology than this, which we doubt very much if he really now sincerely believes.

The letter of Mr. Levi P. Morton, ac cepting the Republican nomination for the vice presidency, appears m tnis morn lug's Courier-Journal. It will be read with enriosity by both Democrats and Republicans, for there is, perhaps, no man whose name is known at all in political circles concerning whose views there is such absolute ignorance. The truth is that Mr. Morton is a man who has never been thought of as holding positive opinions of his own. Morton's name in politics has been simply sfnony mous with money. If he hod not had money and had not been willing to spend it to buy claims on the consideration of his party he would never have been heard of in public life. Ills letter, however, will not eniignten the curious. He merely points to that re markable hotch potch, the Republican platform, and says in effect, "Them's my sentiments," although he does not say it in such pointed and plain words. It would have been better if he had contented him self with such a declaration, for in at tempting to say something more he perpe trates an amateurish essay on the tariff issue which is a weak string of platitudes that have beou better said a thousand times before. Mr. Morton. In writing his letter, has lost his opportunity to show to the coun try that it is mistaken in its conviction that his monev was his only merit to sin gle him out from several million other Republicans as a man marked for vice presidential honors. LouiHvilVo Courier Journal. Tbe Counrctlcat Town Klerttons. The returns from the .Connecticut town elections, on Monday of this week, have not jet been received with suffkient full ness to justifv any precise statement as to their significance. It is, however, suf ficiently clear already that the Doniocret have more Uian held their own in tlie man ufacturing towns and that the Prohibi tion vote Is stronger than ever. As the only hope of being able to oarry the state for their presidential ticket sprang from tbe belief that ihn tariff issue wou)d demoralize the Democratic votn In the manufacturing towns, it is t4car that the results thus for reconded must tend to depress the lie publican managers. It may, of course, be said, and, In fad, is already said, that the town WcUotlu are affected by strictly local influences, which will not. operate in November. While tills is true, It is also true that rtrtaily partisan influences count for a good deal, and make them selves visible in the general tendency of the to witt. When we find the Demo crats stronger than ever lu Hartford, and able to wrest such towns as Meriden, Bran ford, Eaat Haven, Qsftfllir, Mil ford and Wallrogfbrd from their adversaries, it seema sue to conclude that there is a marked public disposition to support the Democratic cause. As the matter stands we should say that the returns before us warrant the expectation that the Demo crats will carry Connecticut by a plu rality oi not less than 000. Brooklyn Citizen. Th Almost Omniscient Foraker. Governor Foraker places his thnmbs in his armpits, throws Ids hat on the back of his head and declares that the Repub licans will oarry Ohio by a nice little ma jority of 60,000. That rather staggers us, we mnst con fess. Foraker has a great bend. He eon see through a millstone as well as through a telescope. He knows more well, there isn't anything in the heavens above or the earth beneath or the waters under the earth that he can't tell yon all about. Why? Oh, because he thinks he made tnem. We don't quite know who created Foraker, but we teel reasonably sure that he must have been completely exhausted by the effort. New York Herald. losing Tils Grip. Mr. Blame shonld have learned reason ableness and patriotism from Chauncey M. Depew. The latter magnetic man de nounced as absurd the idea that one-half bia fcUlow citizens were bent upon rain ing American Industries and degrading American labor. But Mr. Blaine told his Detroit audience that "England seeks en trance into this market, and the Demo cratic party, following the lead of Presi dent Cleveland, is doing all it can to destroy our home market and give a large share of it to nations beyond the see." Mr. Blaine seems to have lost his grip. New York World. QnTes.'tis Tmet We have the finest line of new patterns of Fiece Glassware and Sets you ever laid your eyes on.
