STKIKIX. rKATl'KKS OI>««r\r(l in th* Pnrni)«-M«a anil the Unplajr. Of course Governor Hendricks was the centra! figure in the parade, lie occupied an open carriage in the centre of the line and his genial tace, surmounted by I is rap idly silvering hair, wore a perpetual smile* His black beaver was constantly being lift ed and thousands ran out to shake his hand. To each he stave a kindly word and 1 there was that about his free, ploaaant man ner that won all hearts and shout and after shout rent the air when his carriage ap peared. He was attended in the carriage, ay <iov J. B. Jackson. Auditor J. S. Miller and Lewis Baker. Rsu.. nu mber of National Committee. The deception Committee followed, in open carriages and all were at tended by the Monnted Ksoort. This was a body of men, one hundred in number, hand *>melv mounted and equipped and they made a most imposing body. Cheers were given them, whenever thev appeared, and congratulations poured in upon thern after 'lhe visiting ilubs showed up in Hue shape, both in and out of lhe parade, and great things were looked for firoiu the night parade. The Wheeling boys came out strong, and while not making any -necial claim for their marching, they made rne boast of numbers. All were uniformed, except the Howlertown club, which has just organized and deserves much credit. The number of jnniors was conspicuous, showing the drifting of the tide. "We can t vo(e, but will soon, and our daddies can" was their motto. They are the voters of l.*88 in manv cases. It is very difficult on short notice to get up an industrial displav and this one was very creditable. Sails were cut. boilers made, machinery and printioa presses mov ing and anvils sounding in the line, while glassware cakes, printed badges and nails with C and H. stamped on them were dis tributed over the route. The !>aainess dis play was also creditable while the numaer of wagons, carriages and. buggie* w»vi re The fancy designs, the little girs in floats, vans and boats were exceedingly well sotten up. Some were neat and pretty, while others gained their point in being very humorous. „ A Martin's Ferry wagon, in which two former iiepublicans were conspicuous, was deserving of special notice. It represented a partv of hunters. with zuns and dogs, un der a tree, in the branches of which was a coon. "That same old Republican coon' will eat no more Democratic roosters, bnt most be content with crow. He has -been *nre#d #t last" cotffltrf districts deserve t*pecisl cowendation. Th* Richland cavalry were m fine a body of mes as one could de sire to see and the district well repre sented. Triadftlptiia district sent mi a good ; delegation, mounted and in wagdto and Marshall land showed up in good shap?. Lo« Steenrod had a good display ot fans products—"Fruits of Democracy"—and an other large wagon of the same wa* shown. The marshals were a tine looking set of men and the commander and his aides ranked with them. There were Mayors Sweeney, Baird, Jeffers, Brady. Egerter and Miller, carrving back twenty years, in which time Wheeling had but one Republican mavor. The excellent drum corps, one for each club, were conspicuous and deserve special commendation. % STRIKING AJO) APPOSITE. The Banner* and Tru*par«KlM, with Their Motto** and Dttipu, Nothing was more striking in the pro I ce»;on than the numerous basnets and transparencies with their apposite anl forcible designs and mottoes. From the oeatly and skilfully pain ten designs of the .professional artist, to the roughly outlined sketches ot the amateur, they were of peca liar point and struck home every time. Some of the large transparencies reproduced the cartoons from Puck, in the original colors, but tier were not more taking, though more pleasing to the eye than the homely One design represents Klkins hard at work with s< ap, endeavoring to wash the tattoo-marks from Blaine. The expressions ofboth faces show he is not succeeding, and the motto tells the story: "Elkin's soap will not do." Boss Tweed, in convict suit, is pictured as saving : "1 cast my anchor to windward, too, but where is my vindication.' "The rat Tribune will vindicate Blaine,' "Jim and Jack" on the log. gazing pen sively in the water below, is one aesign, while another represents "Paul" Blaine and "Florence'' looking out to see what the wild waves are sa vins. The waters are roll ing in labeled "revolt" Cleveland grasping the hand of labor is shown, while on tne reverse is: "Blaine h<»d better visit the Hocking Valley." The same one has the history of Blaine a pro hibition dodge: "Prohibition in Maine, fear in Ohio." He is represented as two-sided, one hand grasping a petition and the other a glass of beer. Another shows him pen sively eyeing a whisky still and a barrel of beer, while the motto refers to his views of the bigoted German. "I'll never write another letter." is on one, which shows him sitting at a desk, with Mulligan ink all over his hands. "My love to Mrs. Fisher." "I will be no deadhead," and "I'll cast an anchor to windward' are on the same. A bust of Washington was shown, with ♦he motto, "This is not Jarnw 0, Blaine." "Soap, or I perish " exclaims Blaine, with his hanis outstrek'hrd ia piteous appeal. Many of th* banners and transparencies (K>re very appropriate State mottoes. Some ot these were: " West Virginia not in the market, Mr. Elkins: " "Windy Wilson will wiii,' West Virginia can neither be bought nor bribed;'' "West Virginia solid for Cleveland and Reform: " This State will revenge the steal of 187i'»." One bore the couplet— " We'll paint the State-house green When Duffy rules the land.'1 The county people had county affairs prominent. " Richland good for 100 ma jority;" " Triadelphia solid for the whole ticket: " " Ha id Ian Jor Sheriff,'' wers some ' of these. GENERAL MOTTOES ASP DESIIGS'3. 'Tell the truth," was on a lean horse as he cantered along. "No Government with a big end," "Honesty vs. Corruption," "No salary grabbers," and the like were very frequent. The following motto was con spicuous: Tell the truth—Cleveland. < >pen the books—Hendricks. Tne Wellington club had: "The stu dt uts of iilaiue 8 Alma Mater, not attracted boys outlined BUii>es foreign policy in a large transparency showing Daniel Mc Sweeuev languishing in a British prison, while Biaine wa» Secretary of State.

"Whoa. Mulligan!"' "Strike hile the Iron is Hot and Save Our Coun try's Industries.', Cleveland and Reform, dendricks and Revenge." These were >ome of the many mottoes, while there were others that escaped notice at the time. designs on some home topics. DESIGNS FROM PUCK. STATE MOTTOES. ON THE FAjR GROUNDS. A *|ilendid Crowd Knthtmert Orer Splendid Speerhei, It was fully 3 o clock when Mr. Hendricks, accompauied by Governor Jackson, Auditor Miller and Lewis Baker, entered the speak ers' stand. MrJ lleudr:c«s had been recog ui/.ed as his carriage entered the quarter stretch and a continuous cheer hod followed !iim to the stand. As he alighted from toe carriage the throng pressed round ;he distinguished gentleman and it was with difficulty and much delay that he reached the stand. As .'lis head appeared above the railing the vast crowd that swept like a sea from the „iand stand across the home stretch far into i he quarter stretch, gave such a cheer would have brought a Hush of pride to the coldest blooded man in Amer ica. It was a cheer that at one and the atne time bade him welcome and God speed. In response. Mr. Hendricks ad vanced to the front and bowed his acknowl edgements. The thousands agnin broke into cheers that swelled like billows of a mijrhty sea and lasted for minutes. It whs not the forced tribute of unwilling auditors, but the heartfelt greeting of a glad constituency. W hen something like order bad been restored. Johh S Baylor, Chairman of the<>hw> County Central Com mittee. called (tovernor .l*ek».".ii to ♦ire side. The Ciavernor responded us fol lows^ Onveruor Jnek«OD I'^on assuiuiBg the Chair spoke a.« follows: "Fellow Ivuiocrats of the Nation—when I .-ay the Democrats ot the Nation I not only mean the voting population, bat this mag nificent display of tne females now in our presence. ''As Chairman of your meeting I have iust received the following dispatcn which I beg to read to you: '"I-argest meeting ever held in Mineral county. Greetings to Thomas A. Hendricks otce lawfully elected Vice President.'" [Great cheers.] "You are assembled here to-day to also send greetings to the Hon. Thomas A. Hen dricks. not only once elected Vice President, but who will be actual!V *n4 ia your Vice President after the 4th day of next November. [Great enthusiastic cheerio* waving of hata, handkerchiefs, 4c.] A jreat wrong that was committed in 1^76 is 'going to be righted in November. | [Great cheers."! I not only see it but I feel it, and I believe that each one of you feti it and intend to make that prediction true. [Criw of do" »nd cheers, My fellow Democrats, this greftt »nd ?0<H J man » how here to speak for himstftt I dtsire <e> present Kim w yon and ask at your bands a respectful attention to what he may *ay to yon. I have now the honor to present to you the Hon. Thomas A. Hendricks, of Indiana, our next Vice Presi dent. [Cheei* ] Governor Hendricks. The snn fell with such uncomfortable force upon the speaker's stand that Gov. Hendricks determined to leave the desk and address the people from a carriage on the home stretch. With arrest difficulty he j forced his way to the track. tiie srtKi-H. The Hon. Thomas A. Hendricks arose and was greeted with round after round of applause. He said: Lapies asd Gotlkme!*—I know I can not make mvself heard by ore-half of this crowd, but I wiU ask sucfi attention as you i can sire me and will do the beat I can. I will he mi creed ed br gemlewen who will I make themselvea heard. Tbe truth is, there are too many here to day [laughter], but Colonel Fellows and I could not help that [Renewed laughter.] It ia only Kttfe more than four we«ks when the greatest j event will take place in the Untited States which our institutions contemplate. It is the great election. The election of the dif ferent officers of the greatest country in the world. [Cheers ] An election. And have you stopped to consider what that means ? It does not mean that a man's vote is to be cast accoiding to the dictate of any body. It means that we shall all elect. We shall each man for him self choose what policy of government he will favor. Why is it not inevitable in this also, that when we come to cast our ballots it will mean that we are in favor of contin uing the management of public srffairs as they have been or we are in favor of a change? [Cheers ] And what think you? Ought there to be a change, or 6hall it con tinue a3 it has been? [Cries of Change! Change'] FOR 5I.VKTKCX TEARS, since peace came upon the land one political paity nas managed the aJairs ot this counj try. For nineteeu years one half of the people and more than one-half of the peo ple nave been excluded from participation m the executive and administrative man agement of public affairs. Why this? Is it right? [Cries of no, not a bit of it] Is it right to govern America like the right to the English throne—a matter to- be inherited? [Cries of no; never.] Because a man claims to be a Republican in his party politics does tie have prior rights to nL» fellow citizens who contribute 10 the expenses of the gov ernment? So we Lave to consider whether there ought to be a change next March A I change in policy and in administration. And let me call your attention to oue fact. Four years ago when Garfield was a Re publican candidate for President and Han | cock of the Democracy, the Republicans said to you with great force, with great propriety perhaps. "Can't you let well enough alone?1' Ther told fou that every where PROSPERITY PERVADED THE LAND and inspirited our affairs. And then they asked you '"if we have such good times why do you risk a change of administration /' And the people res|H>nded to that argument. How is it now? Do they say to you, "Let well enough alone ?' Ia it well enough to day, [voice, no!] when the farmer gets .'JO per cent less than his products commanded tour years a?o; when labor, skilled, or oth erwise, get* less compensation for actual la bor penormed by perhaps 30 per cent than • he did four years ago; when tne products of the shops seek a market and can scarcely find a market Do you tell me whether any man has the right to use the argument Let well enough alone?' Has my man now the right to say to you, "Let well enough alone''" In this country of ours, with auch a variety of productions, with such rich lands, occupied St such an industrious, hardy, healthy peo ple, why is it that there should ever be hard times? \\ ith this government well admin istered, only for the public good, there never will be hard times. [Cheers.] By the bow in the clouds THE noon OOll HAS PROMISKO as rain and sunshine in their season. It comes to us in this knd and makes it the land of abounding plenty. So if govern ment be in every resj>eet adjusted and ad ministered only for the people's good we ought not to have harrf times at all. Let us look into this question of hard times a little. Why is it? The distinguished gentleman that re^gpnts the Republican ptrty as the cawt* for Vice President section of the country and he saw tit—if it suited his party it suittd him— [liaughter] to use this language " My friend' Gov. Hendricks, the candi date for the Vice Presidencv on the Demo era tic ticket says there is $400,000,000 ol surplus in the Treasury that ought to be in circulation amonsr th*> people Gov. Hen dricks ought to know letter, jf he doesn't krow better he is not qualified to be Vice President " [Laughter.] Now I will tell you what there is about that I did not urdertnke to say how nv ch there was in THE TREASI'RT, out in the fust speech that I made to in} neighbors on this sabject, I used this lau guage: "In a speech recently made at Richmond. Mr. Caikins. the candidate for Governor in Indiana, boasting ot* the achievements of his party, made the statement, wliich I adopt without examina tion, that the Republican party, when it came into power, found an empty treasury: now it has surplus of #100,000,000." Mr. Calkins was the nominee of the Re publican party, and is to-day, for Governor of Indiana. He is a member of Congress now, and has been for several sessions, and when be stated to his countrymen that the the accumulations in the treasury above the demands of the public service $400,000,000. I adopted it without any further examina ticn. And now (Jen. Lo^an says that any body that would make that statement, just as Calkins, his own candidate for Governor, did make it, isn't tit to fill office. Well. 1 am willing to admit it so far as Calkins is I concerned [laughter], but I don't admit, if I do tor once in my life trust to what a R" publican says, that I am to be banished for e\cr. I think have already decided that Mr. Calkin* will not be the Governor of that State. But. and I saw it on one ol the banners, what are the wild waves saying' And what are she wild waves savin? in regard to Gen lagan's prospects of a high office* [Voice; ' He will never get there! Cheers j Now. my fellow citizens, what was »he meat and au /stance of thi-= controversy 1 I took the ground that there ought to be a change of ' administration because the Republican pirtv continues the laws upon the statute book collecting far more money off the people than the government needs That is the au'istance of it. And 1ft Gen. Logan come up and meet that question and when he m.-eU that question he will meet higher au thority tban he is himself. How much money has the government a right to collect off of the people Ft has the right to collect all themonev that it needs to carry on the government, eco nomically administered That's the doc trine. There is where we stand. Now, let us see how that is. Two years ago the President of the Cnited States in his ad dress to Congress used this language: Two years ago he admonished Congress that at a prior session he had urgwl upon this nation I the importance of relieving the indastry and enterprise of the country of unneces sary taxation. How much in excess, do you suppose. President Arthur told Con jee toe taxation of the country was col lecting? Yon would suppose ten or fifteen millions, perha^n not tiiat. Now, I will read von wbe said: "For the fisc"! yeuitaMJvm 30. 15W1. the surplus revenue amounted to $100,(400. 0f0" ■ .1AJ4 la one year the exceofl a.moanU?c to $100. 0OO OO0. For the fiscal year ended on 30th of June last, the surplus was more than ♦145.000,000. After that Congress modi fied the law so as to RKIVCB TAXATI OS somewhat, as it was claimed, but let me read you what the Secretary of the Treasarr said at the next meeting of Congress. "In his annual message the .Id of December last, the Secretary of the Treasury estimates the suiplus for the current year at $85,000,000." And he adds: "So the question still presses, what legis lation is necessary to relieve the peo ple of unnecessary taxation;" $35. 000,000' a year ia excess of the demands of economical government; $85,000 WW! And so awreUrv tic question pre«ee, And what siail be done for the people to relieve them from exceesfre taxation? And since the Secre tary o£ the Treasury made that appeal aouinf has been done. The Republican party Qpums that it is in favor of a modifi cation of the tariff. Nineteen years have rolled by and they have been in power most of the time, and vet taxation now finds the people oppressed with $><5,000,000 every yiar above tne needs of the govern ment. Wha' say you* I will tell you I say. A. party that persistently refuses to relieve the people from excessive taxa tion ought to go out and another party ought to succeed them. [Cheer? ] It is not a Question of the adjustment of the tariff, hit it is a question of reducing taxa tion. " I tan it, any man in this crowd will say there ought to be some modification of the law 'axing the people. When there is $*<5, 000,000 collected every year more than the demands of the Government will consume th»»re ought to be a modification, or, as the Democifets express it, REVENUE REFORM. My oountrymen, as the representative of the party that nominated me fur the high office. 1 say to you that the platform adopt ed by the Convention is my platform [cheers! and with your permission I will refer tolt, for every man that is capable of forming a judgement at all ought to know upon w^at principles the Government is go ing to tax him and his neighbors, ana 1 proposoio tell you. and if our policy is the right ope, I demand your support for the £nat fartv that adopted that pol icy. , [Cheers.] Now, let m# call \jour attention to the platform adopted by the Chicago conven tion. Tie first proposition of that platform is as follows: ''Federal taxation shall not exceed tfea needs of the government econ omically administered.'' 1 put the question to every -man here present—is that not, rijjht? .JCrifcs of Yes! Itight!

Now. my fellow citizens, the next proposition of the platform is: "Federal taxation shall be exclusively for public purposes." j ax gBtnerers mat come to you or me inust come to collect taxes for public pur pose*, not for private purposes. And what say }ou to that? Shall taxes be collected off of all the people for the benefit of one man, or of a few men! So we will pass to the next proposition. '"It shall be the duty of Congress to re vise the tariff in a spirit of fairness to all in terested, and that any change of law must lit everv majre and step be regardful of th« labor and capital employed in the in lus tries of the couutry."' In the modification of the tariff the Democracy say that it shall !>e with due regard to the interests and the WGI.I'ARl: OK THE LABOR and capital employed in the industries of ilH couutry. That is right, and I will not stop to argue it to an intelligent audience. And the last proposition is, that the lightest taxation shall be on articles of necessity and the heaviest taxation upon ar ticles of luxury. [Cheers and cries of Good! (iood!

[Laugh ter] Let me read you this: On the 20th day of last month this dis patch was published from Washington: ' The large new silver vault under the cash room in the Treasury department is finished, and the tran-d- r of silver to it will bej;in on Monday next." That was last Monday, and they have been engaged removing the silver into the new vault now six days. It has a storage ca nity of fifty millions ot silver dollars .Silver now stored in the Treasury amount ing to ♦5.000.000 will be transferrH to tho new vault, where will also be stored the sui plus of coinage of the different mints ac cumulated every month. I expect that will be satisfactory to some people. A new vault' [Lauebterl It is down de*>p in the ground where the people s currency is to be buried. Have jou ever known a buried man to be of any account to his fellowmen? THIS CCEREM'T OF THE PEOPLE that stimulates trade; that the President and the Secretary of the Treasury speak of aj stimulating trade and enterprise, is to be buried, where its activity is gone. As the bltod in a man s face gives life and power and activity to all the parts of his body, so the currency of the country gives a<*tivity and life to business. [Cheers ] Let me a*k you: Is business very active just now ? [Cries of No' No' No'] I can not say at what price labor can be employed just now, because it is more regulated by the time than by the payment. A man is luck/ that gets a chance to work six days out of 'he week, and instead of cutting off labor altogether, it is thought better in many places to give a partial employment In other places labor com mantis but low compensation Now, my fellow citizens, I am not going to • peak of th« many establishments in the • oontry that are closed, where there is do :<re and no smoke con ing out of the stacks, and where the hum of bus? industry is not heard.

All the Town Turns Out With a Number from the Adjacent Bailiwicks. A Procession That Encircles the City. Mr. Blaine Enthusiastically Received By Thousands of People. The Scenes and Incidents of the Reception and Parade--The Decorations and Wu minations. Bellaire always does Blaine proud, lie has occasionally made visit* to this city be fore and each time has been accorded a most cordial reception. Last night when the news of h'U approach was heralded fuller ten thouiand people crowded the elevated platform of the Baltimore and Ohio depot or pushed and passed cai-h other in the avenues of approach to the station. It was thought that he would get in about fivfl o'clock, but as Le was delayed from station to station it was finally announced that he would not arrive till seven o'clock. At that hour the street in the central portion of the city w^re blocked by an almost impenetrable mass of humanity. Pending the arrival of the train the writer had leisure to note the character of the decorations and note the intensity of the feelings that prompted the elaborate ncsa of the reception. On all sides could be heard expressions of confidence in Mr. lilaine, some of these given in language that could not be misunderstood. "If all the men in the country were like Blaine,' said one. "our mills would not be running like they are now. He knows how to keep Knglish stuff out of here." "No; nor the Chinese eiiher, said ano h r "Oh he'll be elected, said a tough looking citizen to his neighbor. These were only a few of the scores of tributes to the Wandering Knight.' rseariy every nouse in tne Dusiness por tion of the city was nut onlv tastefully trimme<? with bunting and Chinese lan terns, but all were illuminated. Never in the history of thcjcity had such jjrnnd decorations of M reefs and bouses been made. From Gravel Ilill to I'inch run they laid them-, selves out to decorate, and Mr. Blaine him self said he bad never seen such a display. THK IONTRIBITIOX8 TO Tilt CROWD.

Then, instead of running into the Bellaire de|iot, his special train was then switched of) upon the B A 0. tracks, and Mr. Blaine ard party taken off at the head of Thirty fifth street. His party consisted of himself Don. Lorenzo Danford, Charles Balt/ell, Walker Blaine, Congressman Finnerty, ol Chicago; Mr. Manley, Hon. A. W. Tenney. ot Brooklyn. General Adam E.

They w< re at once placed in carriages and escort eo to the Globo Ho'el, where Zeke Morris tor an hour unbent himself and treated Mr Blainr p n: .m kindness.

The parade was the moat inspiring and by nil odds the large* ever seen in South ern Ohio. The clubs that participated in the parade were ail nicely uniformed and in a large nam?>er of instances dispensed with the use of torches.

Next to the Plumed Knights of Wheeling, the Steubenville attracted the most favor»h!e notice. Red fire, rockets' and fixture* illuminated every foot of the loote of procession. It took nearly one hour for the procession to pass the speaker's staid. Mr. Blaine reviewed the line from this stand, bowing and moving his hat to each dub as it passed, and acknowledging the tribute of a cheer or dip of banners or lla^s. There were 1,149 lights and torches, besides the clubs without torches or illumi nants. Not leas than three thousand per sons walked in the line. Col. C. S. S. Barron, of Belmont county, was chief maishal of the evening, assisted by a large corps of aids. Col. C. L. Poor man called the meeting to order. He faced fully twenty thousand people, who impatiently awaited the intro duction of Mr. Blaine. In place of that gentleman, the Hon. John Pinnertr, of Chicago, was presented. He defined his reason for not supporting Mr. Cleveland this campaign, and termed himself a "re volted Democrat.' lie had "refused to swallow the insult or take kindly to the party lash when (trover Cleveland was nom inated."
