On taking his chair. President Fneckel thanked the German Democrats of Wil mington for the honor tendered him He urged those present to work and vote for the success of the ticket The Germans are an Important factor In the politics of the country aud state, and they should not neglect the opportunity to exercise their power in the right He introduced in fitting language Deputy Attorney Gener 1 Branch H Giles, who spoke for over half an hour on the tariff for , revenue only. He reviewed briefly the issues which were prominent in the campaign of 1892, when the people, by a tremendous vote, decided that protection as presented by the Republican party was a fraud and a swindle on the American workingmen ani expressed themselves in favor of the principT free government, personal liberty both as regards the possession of property and the right to vote He referred to the setions of the last Congress, when the odious Force bill, the Sherman bill for the purchase of silver, and the iniquitous McKinley hill were stricken from the laws of the land and retired to innocuous desuetu de. He gave a brief outline of the nature of the Mills bill, the Springer bils, ail Democratic measures, which finally culminated in the perfected Wilson bill, and exposed the fallacies uf the claims that the tariff as designed under the McKinley bill either protected the infant industries or the American workingmen. In concluding he called on the Germans, a liberty-loving people, to stand firm for the principles of the Democratic party, to consider the situation calmly.earnestly and interestedly, aud vote as Dr Senner will show you a liberty-loving German should vote. es of Herr Senner's Address, Tbe president then introduced Dr Joseph H Senner, o' New York, com mlssloner of immigration, to whom he paid a high compliment by pronouncing him one of the brightest and ablest German Democrats of this country. Dr Benner is a man of commanding sp earauce and fine voice, and for over an our held hiB audience to the closest attention. He was friquently applauded and many of bis witty and apt points were greeted with laughter. His theme was mainly the tariff and he showed in able and eloquent manner the absurdity of the claim made by the Republican party, that protection was the safeguard of tbe workingman. He cited fig ures to show that the work ingman was the sufferer by tbe tariff as made by the McKinley bill, and the monopolist was tbe gainer. He drew pictures showing the difference between free trade England and high tariff Ger many and Spain and showed wherein lay the increased prosperity of the former. Dr Benner devoted considerable time to a clear and able demonstration of the benefits which would accrue to the work Ingman, to tbe oitizen, to the voter by tbe action of Congress in doing away with the obnoxious Sherman bill, Force bill McKinley tariff bill, at d predicted that under the new regime the commercial condition of this country wonld improve and business become more healthy The A P. A. a Republican Eide Issue, He spoae of the A. P. A , which he denounced as a side Issue of the Repub Beau party, the relic of the Know Nothing party and an insult to a free and liberty-loving pscpla He urged the German voters to consult their beat interests and vote for the party whose watchword Is free government and personal and religions liberty. His re marks were heartily cheered. Victor B. Woolley, nominee of the party for representative in the General Assembly from Wilmington, was then In troduced. He said that Mr, Giles had covered half the ground he had intended to cover, and, although h* was not fully aware of what Dr. Ben., er bed said, he had been Informed by Justice Nasse, that the doctor had covered all the rest. He congratulated the Germans of Wilming ton for turning out in such force and demonstrating that they were not only alive to the situation but staunch in their loyalty to the party. He urged them to continue faithful and share in the victory in November, which would sorely be the reward. He had made it a rule, hes*id, to never asBail the Republicans personal ly from He, however, paid his respect* Co Mr. Addicks, who be described ri»e rostrnm as a man with three homes, and con sequently no home, a lobbyist, and a bidder for high political office In concluding his remarks Mr Woolley referred to the good laws placed on our statute books by the Democratic Legis lature of Delaware The credit of the state has beeu assured aud the schools bave been made free and unmixed. "The Republican party made a big cry about favoring unmixed schools, but showed that they favored mixed municipal offices, mixed police force and a mixed postal service. The Candidates Arrive. At the conclusion of Mr. Woolley's remarks Hon. Ehe W. Tunnell, Samuel Bancroft, Jr., James 'Carmichael, Georgo Hallman, Senator Pyle, Willard Sauls bury end others, who had been attending the New Castle meeting, entered the hall und amid cheers and applause were escorted to the platform. Mr Tanned was introduced aud spoke briefly, saying he was glad to meet his German friends and hoped to shake them ail ;by the haud. The Assault on Ex-Speaker 'Donahue, There were calls for "Bancroft" aud that gentleman walked to the front of tbe otage aud eald : "I am glad you know my namo isn't Donahoe," 'hen turning to Willard Saulsbnry he said : "Saulshury, had I better tell them why Donahoe don't like me?" "I guess there Isn't any necessity," was the reply. 'I guess they kuow it." Mr. Bancroft, turning to the audience continued: "There are tom; people in Wilmington who think I look like Dona hoe, but I don't. I was going down Mailcet street once, aud had just got out of my carriage when a man came up to me aud said : " 'How ave ycu senator?' " 'Who do you take me for,' I asked. " 'Why, Senator Donahoe,' he replied " 'Isn't your name Donahoe?' " 'Do I look like a man who would kick a woman on the street?' I asked, and the man passed on. I don't think Donahoe has liked me ever since." "I have always regretted that I am not conversant with the German langnage. A German woman once told me that all I needed to be gemuthlieb [sociable] was to speak the language. There is one motto I agree witb,howejer Let me see if I can say it— Wer nicht Lebt, Wein, Weibu, Gesang, der bleibt em Narr sein Leben laug." [The man who loves not wine, woman and song will remain a fool his whole life long ] Tbe formal meeting then closed ano those present were introduced to the candidates and shook hands with them. It was a grand demonstration on the part of the Germans, and one long tobe remembered. FAST TIME ON BICYCLES.

He slid that it was with delight that he could look out over such a large and enthusiastic assem blage gathered in the spacious hall to greet and meet the candidates upon the ticket that was always popular. In the course of Lis remarks he said: "I came here 80 years ago and since that time to my own knowledge, New Ca&tle has been tbe banner hundred of Delaware. At one time wo gave a Democratic majority of 459—to William H Lambson for sheriff—aud next month we can do it again. Will yon? "We are in the right in this great national issue before yon. One thing I want to impress on your minds right here. In the grand and polished address last night of Attorney-General W. U. Hemel, of Pennsylvania, in Wilmington, the orator said: 'X hold In my hand a list of 370 strikes which occnrrred bo tween the years of 1889 and 1893—during the administration of Benjamin Harrison, and before tariff reform had come In any of its phases—every one of tnese strikes was in protected industries.' Now, there is your Republican protection. Ob, what a farce! There is only one assurance of economic and prosperous administration and only one way to good government—by electing the whole Democratic ticket." Messrs Tunnell and Bancroft Presented* When Mr Cooper presented Mr. Tun uell with the term "a man good and true, whom none know but to lore," tbe genial Snseex countalu arose and was greetsd with tumultuous applause. He said: "My fellow-citizens, this is iu deed pleasant to me to see such public pride in tbe time honored Democratic party and such enthusiasm in tbe spien did principles. I have not, however, come all the way np from the Break wafer to address you but to meet, and speak with yon personally, which I will soon do " Didn't Go Wild Over Bancroft* When Chairman Cooper presented the stately Congressional candidate, Ban croft, tbe latter arose, looking just like his picture iu the cartoon "After " There was a marked falling off in the enthusiasm as he advanced to the front and began his remarks by saying: "My fellow-citizens of New Castle, I do not know you all as well as I would like to, or perhaps as well as I ought to. I used U> know yonr beloved fellow-townsman Thomas A Janvier, sixty-three years ago, when my father first started business along the Brandywine, a poor young man, this very Mr. Janvier gave him aid that no other man ever offered. Years after ward, when the great flood of 1839 de stroyed everything about the mills, my father came to Mr, Janvier surrendering all that waa left, cil'zc responded can. Go on end take another start. Do not be discouraged ' And that is an illustration of New Castle* humanity and one of which I am proud. [Applause) "My hearers, 1 have learned the great question between the political parties of io-d&y, and have learned to believe that the great Republican plea of protection to American industries was false, nota protection but a menace a little experience in seeing paupey of E nope aud can assure you till Republican clalrnB of pauper labor inter ference here is also false. The only sure way of commercial prosperity in this fair land is by strict adherence to tbe Demo cratic principle of a tariff for revenue only when yonr fellow 'I can't rnn it; ycu It is I've bad labor at the "Now I hope I will get au opportunity of shaking hands with you all, although my right hand is sore (Voice in a mur mur—'From holding it over the (air hole, eh?') because of the many hand shakings of the past fortnight." Mr. Bancroft sat down and then jumped up again, shouting; "One thing I forgot to say, I under stood that there is personal opposition me in New Castle, probably because have beeu misrepresented to you. Why, 1 was approached down the state by man who said: 'How are ycu, I thought you had horns.' I told him 1 wore boots but not horns. Hoping that you are satisfied jnst what kind of an animal am, I will conclude by saying that I'm here to stay until after November 6." Representative Candidate Helsc-1. T.

It was ad dressed to a Philadelphia engraving company and should have been received by it early yesterday morning. The Cartoon was in an unsealed package, tied with string, and was handed to the stamp clerk at the Wilmington post-otfice, who weighed it, and the necessary postage stamps were put on it. Tracers have been sent out for it and the postal authorities called upon to explain its miscarriage. We make no charges against anybody, but the public will draw its own conclusions. In future our Cartoons will be in trusted to kindlier hands for transmission. Bayard was speaking in that quiet neighborhood, was called for and intro duced He said: "I do want to say to the Democrats of New Castle that your neighbors in Red Lion hundred have often wondered how yon of New Castle could get each handsome majorities when we could hardly get any. But now things are changed working man to man. We expect to envy New Castle hundred no longer, but roll up a majority so near yonr customary one that you yourselves will have cause for envy " We are Need Not Fear for St. Georges. There weie loud calls for ' Bliallcross!" and the smiling ex recorder stepped to the footlights after a burst of applause. "Gentlemen," he said, "I am real glad to see you in earnest.

Wo all want to hear aud see the visitors. You all kuow me, in fact can see me every day. And as for majorities, is there any doubt about New Castle being Democratic?" [Shouts of No! No! ha, ha] James Carmichael'was called to [the front, but the baud started to play a patriotic air aud the next sheriff simply bowed while the music sounded ont aud the crowd cheered. Applauding Made Them Hungry.; Theu the march to the City Hall was begun aud while the band played out side, and fireworks hissed, tue crowds swarmed iqto the banquet room and made way with the basketstul of refreshments aboutas rapidly as soldiers would after a long march. Bananas and grapes, skins und all, were devoured, and some of the Shawl own boys only made three dives at one sandwich. Everybody was smiling, a nd occasional stamping on another fellow's corns only caused an Inward struggle on the part of the victim. Meantime the candidates had been escorted to the residence of Dr. Black, aud here the band serenaded them, after which a train-load went to Wilmington to participate in tbe German demonstra tion there. Some of the Visitor-. Among the out of town guests were noticed Howson E Lan nan, J Oakford Lambson, Michael Donahoe, Charles H. Read, Joseph Z.
