A GREAT SPEECH AT TERRE HAUTE.
The Issues of the Day Exhaustively Dis
cussed.
Tbbbb HArri, Ind., August 4.—Sena
tor D. W. Voorbeea opened the Democratic
campaign in » ringing speech here to-night.
It *m • «retail? prepared address and
intended to mud the keynote of the bat
tle. Senatar Yoorhees Mid in rabatance:
I propoee to show that the hiatory of the
Republican party on the snhjeet of taxa
tion is the history of premeditated crime
agajnst the laboring people of the United
State*.
Every movement in the machinery ol
government set in motion by Kepnblican
leaders and managen has been to swell
and nloat the gains of the rich and to in
cream the burdens of the poor; to deprive
labor of its honest reward and to rednce
the industrial clas-es on the farms, in the
workshops and in the mine« to the estate
j and condition of serfs, paying tribute to
their rapacious masters. The Republican
conspitacy to fasten the tangs of the money
power in the struggling body of American,
labor and to enable gigantic usurpation
and legali/.ed robbery to
SC't'K THB KLOOD
of every American industry took its ûrst
great step when, in authorizing legal ten
der currency, in 186*2, the greeabjek, the
immortal and glorious greenback, was dis
criminated .against and degraded in
the money markets of the world
by being made not receivable for duties
on imports and for Interest on the bonded
debt of the United States. In all the annals
of nations, no financial measure was ever
more wilfully wicked in conception and
design, nor more far-reaching, oppressive
tuid destructive to the rights of labor in its
results than this.
The Senator declared this act enabled
the "bullionists" of Wall street to realize
a profit in '"naked speculation," with the
bonds and currency of the nation of nearly
one thousand million dollars.
I The laboring people have been too pa
tient, too forbearing. I do not believe any
other people on the globe would have sub
mitted unie») restrained by force, to the
monstrous act of Congress of March, 1869.
By one dishonest stroke of a dishonest pen,
guided and held by the dishonest leaders
of a great party, the debt, which labor has
to pay, was swollen 25 per cent.
iwisns mai>k payable iîî goi.d.
The great bulk of our bonds, the five
twenties, were payable in greenbacks, and
the authors of the act of March, 1869,
knew it was falae wheu they declared it
was payable in coin.
The speaker then quote«! at lengtn irom
the speech of Senator Beck on the snbject
March l.'Uh, last. He also quoted the let
ter written bj John Sherman in 18(>8,
and resurrected by Beck, wherein Sher
man mid: "I think the holder violates
hin promue when he refusee to take the
««âme kind of money he paid for hia
bonds." "Why," asked the speaker,
"should not the greenback with its his
tory, and with all the crimen committed
and attempted agaiust it by the leaders of
the Kepublicau party come to the front at
this time and at all times, when the in
terests of th* laboring classes are under
consideration'"
"Branded at its birth with the ba.- sin
ister as a bastard in the tield of currency,
persistently stigmatized and caricatured
us a rag baby, born in a foundling hospi
tal without parentage, for years denounced
as dishonest money, a fraud upon the
business and commercial world, vet it
stands to-day in every State in the Union
with its head as high and its purchasing
power as great as the brightest gold that
ever dished from the depths of the earth.
"It is true the Republican candidate for
President suggested in 1878 than an idiot
asylum ought to be erected for believers
in the green back; for yon, my old green
back friend, and for me. I believed in
the greenback then, and I do now, and I
take my place along side of yon nnder
General Harrison's sweeping, intolerant,
brutal criticisms aud denunciations. I
did so ten years ago, when he poured ont
scornful wrath npon ns, and I was well
coûtent with the result. He canvassed
the State in 1878 as the candidate of bis
party for the Senate, as I did as the candi
date of mine, and the people of Indiana
decided, by more thau 30,000 majority on
the popular vote for members of the Legis
lature, that lie was nearer a financial idiot
than I was, and that I ehonld go hack to
Washington and leave him at home.
I HK TARIKK KSTION.
Stt«tor Vaorh«**i then entered upon the
tariff ùwue and recounted the history of
modem tariff legislation. No relief, the
••peaker declared, was nfforded to labor hy
a resort to a domestic excise system. Oa
the contrary, the system was made the
pretext for util] farther bold »od limit loan
encroachments on the part of monopoly
au<l «reed agaiust the rights of those who
do it.
"The two arts of CongrwB of 1S63 and
1864, by which protective da tie* were
made to aiceod to a Pike's Peak altitude,
were demanded on the express ground
that the manafactnrer should be compo
sited for the amount of his internal tax."
On this point the speaker quoted exten
sively from Senators Morrill, Allison and
others. Treating of the internal factory
tax, which was repealed in 1869, the
speaker declared that tb« extreme duties
on imports laid in 1*6*2 and 1064, expressly
to compensate tor the payment of that
very tax, still remain in tall fore« and
effect
For nineteen years the Kepublicab party
has caused the people to pay the manu
facturer at least a hundred millions a year
in consideration of a tax paid br the
manufacturer to the government, not a
dollar of which tax during tbat time was
paid. Nearly two billion dollars have
thus been wrenched from the toiling
The money kings have thus far resisted
every effort to reduce the mountainous
tariff duties by which they have drained
the earnings of the people. Bond« and
coupons, bank stocks and railroad pro lits
were made exempt from the tax gatherers
demands, while the tax on your shirt and
your wife's calico dress and flannel petti
coat retried the same, or were increased.
Senator Voorhees then diacu—ed at
length
THX I.A BOB yl'KTIOX
and the turpi na. He declared the labor
cheap (arming material* and cheap article«
for household and kitchen use."
Touching upon the Republican internal
revenue pl.tnk he aaid: "It ia hard to
apeak in moderation of thia monstrous
proposition.. In thia Christian land and
age men aometimea spoken of aa Christian
statesmen have nothing better than free
whisky and tobacco to offer the people in
response to their cry for relief.
The worst enemies the manufacturing
interests in this country can possibly have
are those who advise them not to accept
and acquiesce cheerfully and gladly in the
extremiy moderate and entirely harmless
reductions made by the Mills bill.
The slave holder of the South once be
longed to the clan which composed the
mouey power. They once were monopo
lists of cheap underpaid labor, and their
rights under the fugitive slave law and in
the territories were arrogantly pressed to a
point where the sword was drawn and mil
lions of men took the field.
A WAKNINU TO MONOPOUKS.
Then the section which had everything
in its possession and consequently every
thing to loee and nothing to gain, lost its
entixeisnbstance in a struggle for a shadow
—» theory. Themost bitter and implaca
ble aupporters of slavery and of its exten
sion, thirty years ago, were in fact, the
most successful and eihcient abolitionists
of the Nineteenth century. The struck too,
and their blows came back to destiov them.
And so it will be with thd parse proud, in
solent, blind and misled tax eaters of the
present day. By mtikiDg no concessions to
the over taxed condition of tbe peoplte, to
the ovetwhelming surplus in the Treasury,
and by refusing to permit a single
dollar .of reduction on the necessi
ties of life, but on the contrary,
insisting that whisky and tobacco should
go free, the manufacturers have done more
to promote the idea of free trade in this
country in the last few months than the
eloquent and gifted tongues and pens of
Frank Hunt, Henry Watterson, David A.
Wells and all their confreers daring as
many years
Senator Voorhees then paid bis respects
to the Kepnblicaii ticket, declaring ''Never
were candidates in their natures, educa
tion, habits, avocation and association
more absolutely the representatives of
their party's declared policy than Benja
min Harrison and Levi P. Morton."
He dwelt upon tbe part General Harri
son took in suppressing the labor troubles
of lfK7, and inquired: "In what respect
does the career of General Harrison anpeul
strongly to the pride of Indianans? I
would not disparage his just claims to the
respect of hiscountrymeu, bat whose duty
is it to vote for him on the grounds of
State pride?
AN INSKLT TO INDIANA. .
The Republican Presidential candidate
in the last campaign brought an action ot
slander against a Democratic newspaper of
Indianapolis. It involved the most deli
cate matters of domestic life, concerning
which I have never spoken and never
will. General Harrison was Mr. Blaine's
leading lawyer, and when he moved
to dismiss the case without bringing
it to trial, he assigned as a reason for
doing so such a libel on tbe State and on
the Court that Judge Woods refused the
paper containing it a place on his files. Ia
that paper it was in substance alleged that
a court presided over by au intense Re
publican Jndg% with a Republican Mar
shal and Republican Jury Commissioners,
had become so debauched hy theinfiuence
ot political agitation, and by the recent
Democratic victory that a citizen
of Maine conld not aecure a
fair trial, nor obtuin justice in it,
nor, indeed, in any ot the courts of Indi
ana. I do not know whether this paper
was written by lawyer or client, nor does
it matter; the presentation of it for per
manent record was the crime against the
honor of the State."
In conclusion Senator Voorhees recount
ed the historic part of Gen. Wm. Henry
Harrisou took to seenre the repeal of the
sixth article of the Ordinance of 17H7, and
thereby established slavery iu the north
west territories, embracing Indiana.
COLOR Kl) DEMOCRATS

t-al Kuniltge.
St. Lolls, August 4.—J. Milton Tur
ner, chairman of the National Negro Dem
ocratic Kxecutive Committee, has returned
to the city from the Indianapolis Conven
tion. He was seen by a reporter, to whom
he aaitl: "The Indianapolis Contention
was by far the most intellectual gathering
of negroes that ever assembled together
in this country. There were nine
lawyers, live physicians and a large
number of teachers, among the latter be
ing Prof. Peter H. Clark, the greatest ne
gro educator of the age. I shall call a
meeting at an early day for the Executive
Committee in New York, when we will
communicate with the National Democrat
ic Committee. Our policy will be to co
operate with the party in doubtful States
by furnishing speakers, literature and
workers. A national Democratic negro
paper will be established in Washington,
D. C., and the result of the movement
will be a far better understanding be
tween the whites and negroes at the South
than has existed heretofore.
"The attempt of Republican papers to
ridicule this movement is an admission
that our argumenta are unaswerable. The
uegro's interests are with the party which
advocates tariff reform He is a producer
of cotton and other raw mater
ials, and under a high hprotective system
ultimately pays a tax on his own
labor. We are not actuated, as Republi
can* claim, by mercenary motives, nor
was the Democratic National Committee
at all concerned in calling or directing the
movrui.ujt, which represent* the hittheid
thought the negroes lepreseut in this coun
try. As rapidly as be is able to grasp
the subject of the tariff he will become
Democratic. The fact that the tariff ques
tion is the issne is • hippy circumstance
for the uegro who wishes to break the
shackles of party slavery. It takes him
out of politics as an issue and enables him to
make terms with the men of that section
in which he must earn his living. The
American negro can live in no other coun
try but the United States, and he can live
nowhere in the United States as well as in
the South. There his labor is necessary.
It is a well-settled principle that love is
always aggressive, and .in the natural
course of events the negro will come to
own the soil, or his part of it which he cul
tivates."

And Karshall County Republicans Select
Their County Tickets.
W«8TONrW. Va., August 4.—Tb« Re
publican« held conventions sa each of the
Magisterial Districts of the county to-day
for the purpose of appointing delegates to
a general convention to be held here next
Saturday, at which the county ticket will
be nominated. For some time
there ha» been a spirited content
over the nomination for the prose
cuting attorneyship, the candidates
being Eugene Somiaerville and George C.
Cole. The nomination of Cole has been
championed by the town bosses, whilst
Bommerville is said to be more popular
with the country people. At a recent con
vention held here some hard feeling was
caused by the adoption of a motion,
favoring a mass convention for
the nomination of the county
ticket and as the County Executive
Committee had wince called a district con
vention apparently in defiance of the ex
presstd will of the people, at that time,
mine trouble was anticipated to-day by the
friends of both candidates, as the dele
gates appointed wouln virtually Bettle the
question of who woald be the nominee.
However, as Bommerville seemed to be in
the lead, no objection was made to the ac
tion of the committee, and everything
passed off « veu more smoothly than was
expected.
On Sand Fork, after the Cole men were
defeated, Dr. M. S. Holt, editor of the Re
publican, went up to W. B. McGary, the
Democratic candidate for the position, and
congratulated him and assured him that
he would receive his vote. Other Kepnb
licaus followed suit, and when the con
vention adjourned one hack full of Repub
licans made the air sound with cheers for
McGary.

CLEVELAND'S LETTER
mil Be Ready In Two Weeks and Will
Deal With the Tariff.
Washington, August 4.—The frequent
inquiries at the White Honse as to when
the president's letter formally accepting
the St. Louis nomination would be made
public have been uniformly met with the
reply that no information could be given
aa to the date. To-day, however, Colonel
Lamo"t informed the Democratic member
of congress that the letter would be forth
coming in a couple of weeks. While it
has been two monthssince the nomination,
there has been no unusual delay in the
matter, as in 1884 the president did not
issue his letter of acceptance until August
18.
It has been asserted that the President
has been waiting until thô Senate should
act on the tariff bill; but this is absurd, in
asrnuch as the Senate bill is not likely to
be passed until the campaign is half fought
out. The President's position was dis
tinctly announced in his message of De
cember lust, and his letter of acceptance
cannot be made more pointed or striking.
It is the general opinion here that the
letter, in tfleet, will follow the lines of
the revenue reform message without much
admixture of other matters, unless some
thing in reiation to pensions is intro
duced.
The pressure on the President's time is
very great just now, as Congress is turning
out large grists of bills which he mus*
approve or reject, and the President never
shirks in these matters. This has doubt
less delayed the appearance of his letter of
acceptance more than anything else.
SWELLING THE LIST
Of Dead front the New Tork Tenement
Fire.
Nkw York, August 4.—The firemen at
work in the ruins of the Bowery fire this
morniug, recovered another body, that of
a woman, probably Minnie Myers, a tai
lored ot 119 Ludlow street. It was
found down on the ground floor
uuder n heap of bnrned mbbish where it
had been overlooked last night. The
flesh was bnrned to a criag and the inden
tity of the woman can be at best only
guessed at. It was reported that two
more bodies apparently of men
had bsen dng out, making 20 deatl s in all
and that the search is ended. A'l that
were in the rnins have been fonnd. This
makes IT bodies now in the morgue. Ten
bodies remain unidentified, bnt later
one of these was recognized
as that of Jacob Femberg, aged :57, a but
tonhole worker of 23 Forsyth street.
Michael Ruhinofl, Phillip Tarlon and
Bernard Rothrnnnd, the other victims who
are confined in Bellevne Hospital, will
recover. About noon the dead wagon ar
rived at the morgne with another unrecog
nized body, that of a man almost incin
erated.
WILLIAM LAWHBNCE, J UN ,
Who lit Making It Interesting for Hon.
JoHeph I). Taylor.
Camhridgk, Ohio, August 4.—The can
vas* being made by William Lawrence,
jun., in this (the Seventeenth) district,
promises some remarkable resnltA. The
district is regarded as hopelessly Repub
lican, and it is conceded that Hon. J. D.
Taylor, the Republican candidate, will be
re-elect«.: to his fourth t«rm and given a
life lease upon the office; and yet Mr.
Lawrence will carry both Guernsey and
Noble counties, and make it nearly a
stand-off in Belmont and Harrifon, eo that
Colonel Taylor will have to depend entire
ly on the big Republican majority in Jef
ferson county. Mr. Lawrence is extreme
ly popular with the young men and
farmers, and the fact that Colonel Taylor,
his opponent, is president of the "Iron
Roofing Trust" is being nsed with power
ful effect against him. The trnst will
probably have to be formally dissolved to
secure the election of its president.
IN TWO ROUNDS.
Totuiny Warren Knock* Oat HI* Man at
Duluth.
Chicago, August 4 —A dispatch from
Dnlnth, Minn., pays: Tommy Warren
defeated .lohn McGill last night in a rat
tling fight of two rounds. The first round
was in Warren's favor, but in the second
he was staggered by a right-hander on the
neck. He recovered qnickly, however,
responding with a swinging left on Mc
( » ill's ear, which dazed him, and followed
it with a straight left, which sent McGill
to the floor. In ten seconds McGill arose,
and was met by a right bander on the
face and a left bander in thajngular, which
laid him out for twenty-three seconda.
The referee at once awarded the fight and
stakes to Warren.

death of Blinky Morgan baa been the talk
of lb« town. Seven execution« by hang
ing bare taken place in the Penitentiary
since the present law m enacted. Of
tbeae all bare been succesaful, not a hitch
occnrring with the exception of Patrick
Hartnett, the Hamilton county man, who
wae the second man hanged there, and the
hanging of Morgan. In the case of Hart
nett the bead waa nearly aevared from the
body and Mood spattered over those who
witnessed the execution. The physicians
had to hold him up to prevent bis head
and body parting. His was an instan
taneous death, however. In Morgan's case
THB BOPI SLIPPED
to the rear of the right ear and he died
slowly by strangulation. He jerked and
kicked, and whan the dasÉers releaaad hie
hands to teat the pulse, the efforts of the
unfortunate man to grasp the rope or nach
his neck to relieve himself were pitiful in
the extreme. While an unfortunate acci
dent, it wm one that is liable to occur on
such occasions, and the officials are in no
way to blame for it
Yesterday morning Drs. Clem mer and
Taylor, of the prison medical force, made
a post-mortem examination of the body.
The functions were in a healthy condition
so far a* the examination went, hut as the
principal object of the dissection was to
seaich for the bullet supposed to be in the
body, the examination was not sucxvsafnl,
no ballet or trace of a bnllet conld be
fonnd, which is confirmatory of Morgan's
claim, and disproves the theory of the
detectives.
After the examination was completed
the body was placed in a rode coffin and
allowed to remain in the execution room
until Mrs. Nellie Lowrey, the friend of the
dead man, called for it, which sne did
shortly before noon.
Shortly after six o'clock to-night the
coffin was plsced in an ordinary under
taker's wagon, covered with a rubber
blanket, and quietly driven to Green lawn
Cemetery, three nfiles from the city. Near
the outskirts of the town a carriage fell in
behinl the wagon and followed it to Green
Lawn. In the carriage were Mrs. Nellie
Ijowrey and a lady and gentleman friend,
and that made up
KLINKKV MORGANS Kl'NKBAI. COBTKOK.
Arriving at the cemetery the coffin was
carried into the public vault, where the
undertaker removed tha lid, exposing the
remains to view through the glass cover.
Mrs. Lowrey, resting on the arm of her
lady friend, entered shortly after and re
qneeted the glase cover to be removed.
When this was done she threw herself on
the coffin, sobbing hysterically, and cried:
"My dear Charlie. They have mnrdered
you. Oh, how could they do it!" She
kissed the lips of the dead man passionate
ly, and stroked and smoothed his hair and
brow, and she finally, with her lady com
panion, knelt in prayer. The prayer was
a silent one, but from the motions she
went through it was evident to your corre
spondent that she is a believer in the Ro
man Catholic creed.
After praying, she again kissed the lips
of the dead, after which she requested the
undertaker to cut a lock of hair from Mor
gan's bead, which he did, and the coffin
was closed. Itefore leaving the vault Mrs.
i/owrey placed two handsome wreaths of
immortelles at the head and foot of the
coffin, after which she was assisted to her
carriage, aod the funeral services of Klinky
Mcrgan were at an end. When asked if
it was her intention to inter the remains
in Cleveland, she said: "No, sir. They
are too precious to me to ever permit them
to touch Cleveland soil." It is her inten
tion to let the body remain here notil next
week, and then remove it to Philadelphia
for interment.
