Parties Concentrating Their Forces for the Struggle. REID AND irmLEY VISIT BOSTON They Address Monster Merline, ni Fanent! Hall on,I Mnsiu Hall—Hiscock amt Ilmi* tullr Speak in New York—Judge Cooley and XVsyne McVrngh for Cleveland. Boston, Oct. 5.—Music hall and Faneull hall were both fillet! to overflowing lost night when the Republicans rat died their state and national nominations with ring ing speeches by Hon. Whiteluw Reid. Gov ernor William McKinley, Lieutenant Gov ernor Haile and Hon, Roger Wolcott, the two latter being the nominees for gov ernor and lieutenant governor respectively. Hon. W. E. Barrett presided, and was flanked by a large number of leading men of the party seated upon the platform. After a short introductory speech Hon. Whitelaw Reid was presented as the first speaker of the evening. He was given a must flattering reception by the large audl ence, which was quick to note the sharp pointe of his address and bestowed frequent applause. Mr. Reid, after thanking his hearers for the reception tendered him, which he did not presume to think, personal, but simply accorded him as the representative of that grand old party whose achievements he briefly recorded, attacked the Democratic policy on tho tariff and linnnrinl questions, and said that since Mt Cleveland's letter of acceptance the Democrats were demor alised and almost on the run. It is ob viously truthful, he said, to say that Mr. Cleveland now acts toward the platform of his party as if he were afraid thaï it he should venture to step on it It would break through. Tho three distinctly vital points iu the platform are state hank currency, reciprocity and the tariff. On two of them his letter is absolutely silent, vMlo he writes all around and about the third. He then discussed the tariff question at length, and after reviewing the efforts of tho Republican party toward the restora tion of the merchant marine, Mr. Reid cun chided as follows: There is one party in this campaign, Mr. Chairman, that (Ini'« not find It needful to «lander the country; that dons not 'leek for calamities and does nut read It* own defeat in the general prosperity. There ts one party that has nothing to conceal and that says what it means. It has nominees who are nut afraid of Us principles. It ts not trying to succeed by getting one part nt tho country to vote for Its platform and another part to vote only for Us candidates. It «tends everywhere for a pro tective tariff, and want« no mistake about that. It stands for honest money, and no mistake about that. It stands fur oqunl right; under tho law, for reciprocity, fur revived shipping, for American wages and for Amen ca all tb«f time. And finally it challenges the verdict of the American people on tho cliarae ter. th« ability and the safe and brilliantly sue ceeaful administration ot Benjamin Harrison At the conclusion of Mr. Reid's »peuch Governor McKinley was introduced and received an ovat ion as he rose to speak He devoted the first part of his address tu a discussion of the old state hank system, and then passed to a discussion of the tariff, and at his conclusion was followed by Lieutenant Governor Haile and Hon Roger Walcott, who had just addressed the meeting iu Fanenil hall, to which place Messrs. Reid and McKinley were taken after their Music hull speeches. At Faneull hall there wits another large crowd that filled the hall mid corridors to suffocation, while the galleries contained many ladies. Postmaster Thomas N, Hurt presided here, aud iu a short speech intro duced Lieutenant Governor t (talk Harrison's administration and said; ''Bo long as Renjatnin Harrison Is presi dent we shall have an honest, sound bank ing currency, which commands resjiect at home and abroad, and the people need not fear under his administration a return to that old state system which was such a dis grace to our pation.' ROn. Roger Wt icott then spoke and was followed by Mr. Reid, who was greeted with deafening cheers. His s|tecch was the same as delivered at Music hall. Governor McKinley came In for more applause when he was Introduced as the last speaker. He spoke almost wholly on the tariff, and after he concluded the meeting broke up with cheers for Held and McKinley. ns the REPUBLICAN RALLY IN GOTHAM. Senator Hlweuek and Congresamnn Hitti te He Address H Big Mass Heeling, New York, Oct. 8.— Cooper union was crowded last night with an enthusiastic audience, the occasion being the Republi can mass meeting and the announced sprecht« of Senator Hiscock and Congres-, man Boutelle. The stage was filled with representative Republicans John Sabin Smith, chairman of the campaign commit tee of the Republican club, introduced Senator Hiscock. whose appearance on the platform was the signal for loud applause. The speaker told of several instance« where he knew of Democratic statesmen who were endeavoring to hold back the people to keep them from progressing loo fust. He considered the last two years splendid vindication of "that masterpiece of American legislation, the McKinley bill." He referred to the Republican vic tory iu Maine, and then spoke of the slop ping hills and the interest of merchant mu rine. On this subject he talked for fully twcuty minutes, and closed by calling on every man to do bis duty at the polls next election ■ At the conclusion of Senator Hiscnok's siH-ech, Chairman Smith, in a neat speech, introduced CougresKiunn Boutelle as the man from the state which produced states men like James Q.

The legislature which adjourned sine die April 31 was the same legislature when 1» assembled April 85, and its doings on both dates were Hie nets of the legislature at its IIrah session. The last point made was that the apportionment of 1893 was void because not liascd on a census taken us the const itution provides.

Inasmuch ns the legislature of 1885 and Its successors had neglected to obey the command of the constitution by the pas sage of an enumeration law. it became the duty of the legislature of 1898 to conform to tbo constitutional requirement and pass the law. As to the "next session" point Mr. Rosen feld said the constitution was also merely directory and said; An act apiiortiuiiing members of nssambly byclio legislature is nut withiu the power of the Judiciary to review. Heating, as the power dues. in legislative discretion, it cannot bo re viewed by the courts, except in cases of fraud aud gross Injustice. The courts cannot insti tute an Inquiry into facts to set aside a law as unconstitutional. The conrt ought nut to de clare the act unconstitutional. Only when re quired by the most cogent reasons, or indeed unless compelled by unanswerable grounds, will a court doclaro a statute to be unconstitu tional.

The Whigs, in company with other Republicans of the stale, do hot seem lo know just "where they are at" since the recent election, and, In casting about to discover what lilt them, have concluded t6 slniltb thfeir gory locks and after clap profanity at the Australian ballot.

This condemnation, on its first trial, of u law to insure fair elections in rather signllicunt, made as it is by a party which is constantly clamoring for legi» Intiou to secure a free ballot, and u fair count, ll lays that party open to the suspicion that its professions lu this re spect are purely pharisaicul, Intended only for effect, to cover its real policy ot I uuning elections to suit itself This is certainly Us policy with reference to tho Force bill, and its prompt demand for the repeal of the fair electlous laws iu Republican stale* like Vermo.l and It is a quotation from the . . ,, .. - , „ , Maine is only another proof of how thoroughly It liooinudt ed tothat twlloyv 1 he Australian systeffi is acknowledged o be the fatrest wo ever hud. ui this country.

We do not suppose that'they will attempt to explain their opposition to tho law on the ground thud its provisions prevented more ignorant Republicans from voting than ignorant Democrats.
