of tin iiest oratorical efforts eer heard In

his upeeih he indulged In flights of orator)
that wen- real!) brilliant and the large audi
ence fairly hung on his words.
Mr Boutelle entered the'wigvvam in

republicans took seats on the platform,
among them Senator Pnugle. Bev John T.

I met an old democrat on Saturday even

Old mosshacks seem to agree w ith ui) i

After the prolonged applause with which
Mr. Boutelle was greeted had subsided, he
spoke as follows:
Ladles and tientlrmen
In this great state of Ohio, republicanism !
ought to grow spontaneously, without the
aid of an) outside influences, but it gives
me great pleasure to come before you to I
discuss with )ou the standing of the great i
political parties toda)
Mx years ago, 1 visited Springfield, to
sleak In the interest of one of Ohio"? dis
tinguished N)ns w ho was then a candidate
for the presidency. I know of no othtr
city In this country vv here the grow Hi has
been more solid, more substantial, more en
during, than it nas been in Springfield, one
of the greatest manufacturing centers in
the union applausej.
In the many campaigns In w hich I hav e
taken part since I w as In this city , I hav e
referred to Springfield as a splendid ex
ample of republican piotection of la
bor. The bright prospect which
Springfield had sue years ago
has been more than fulfilled,
and amid the.-e great manufactories aud
hives of Industry why do you want any
body to come here to urge you to stand
by the republican party'' During the few
hours 1 have been here today I have noticed j
that Springfield has spread out and become
rr renter than si, .i uIt i.ts, o
Since I was here there has been a change in
the national administration. I do not hovv
ev er, claim any resmsibility for that, and
to teil you the trutlu I have not yet met a
single democrat vv ho is at all pleased vv ith
the administration. I am jtistihed in say
ing that, throughout this country the
inth Lid-t. rvriiioTic rrt)iL
have already formulated the nineteen
months of democratic administration into
the prase, "Thou hast been weighed in the
balance and found wanting."
For twenty -four years the republican
party guided this nation safely through
trials unjiaralleled in the history of
nations. I shall not now refer to that rec
ord, for y ou all know what it Is. I shall
only say that I know of no better way to
" -" , J,, ' v
compliment the republican party than to
point to its glorious past; but I hav n t found
a single democrat vv ho cared to refer to the
past of his own party. No, they do not
w aut to quote such ancient history. While
one of Ohio's distinguished speakers Gen
eral Gibson, was speaking ill my state a
few weeks ago, he took out his watch, ami
after stating the precise time of the day
said he would give any democrat in his
audience just five minutes to rise and point
out a single measure of the democratic
party of which he was not ashamed. Not a
democrat accepted the challenge not one
has risen to this hour.
The sjieaker then referred to the manner
in which democratic speakers had
arraigned the republican party for
malfeasance in office, and especially of the
absurd campaign speeches made by senator,
afterward Vice-President Hendricks, in
which he said that he thought the money In
the United States treasury vaults ought to
be div ided among the copIe, and according
to his Innires each man. woman and child
In the country would receiv e about S9 4s
implying In his speeches that if he was
elected such division vv ould be made. He
referred to the cries of the democratic press
during that campaign that there had been
false issues of bonds, misappropriations of
money to campaign uses, and to their pre
diction tint if the democrats ever got on
the inside, they would show the people the
terrible financial management of the na
tion's affairs. In a crisp and interesting
manner, Mr Boutelle then related how the
new administration had ransacked all
the books and vouchers, and all of the
pigeon-holes of the treasury department
and had been able to find a shortage of only
two cents and those two cents w ere after
wards found on the floor by a clerk. Said
the speaker Had some serious discrepancy
been discovered in the treasury accounts,
my faith lu the republican party and the
popular government would not have been
shaken, for during the administration of the
republican part) this countr) had passed
through a gnat civil war, which had cost
almost uncountable sums ever) da) and
those were times when the cupidity of men
was aroused ltut Cleveland, by exercising
the closest Kssible scmtiii), together with
his chosen secretary of the treasury and a
large corps of trained accountants, during
the thirteen months consumed in the inves
tigation, was unable to discover the
ns of sivtih cim.
The next half hour of Mr. Boutelle's
speech was taken up in a masterly discus
sion and a fearful arraignment of the policy
of the prestnt national administration,
showing by facts and figures taken from
the record of congress that the administra
tion had not only been alarmingly extrava
gant, instead of vvisel) economical, as it
had promised to be, but had In-en ruinous!)

He then tmik np the southern question,
and concerning the election of congress
man said

paigns attended as the) are with much
fatigue, expense and excitement, and you
work hard to git men at the polls to vote

yon have to get on an average 37,000
voters to the polls to elect one con
gressman, while In South Carolina there
are on an average only is.ooo voters In a
congressional district; and throughout the
south the ratio is about the same. In
Alabama there 16,000 voters In a district,
while in New Jersey there are 37,000 and
in Maine .50, (WO. On all the great questions

filed a plea in abatement to the indictment
found against him for attempting to bribe
an officer, and the case was argued to Judge
White, the state filing Its formal
demurrer through its attorney, George C.

question as to the legality of six members
of the grand jury by whom the indictment
was found. The attorneys for Sullivan
claim that tlere was an illegal Drocecding
in the maimer of drawing the jurors of the
grand jury, on the grounds that the names
of six of tlieni were in the box previous to

wound in the right
leg. On examination,

semselves made an unsuccessful attempt at
cutting the ballet out but hid succeeded
only In making a very bad place of it Dr. I
Dunlap enlarged the ojwning and readily I
extracted the bullet I
1 he sufferer did not give his name, but I
simply stated that he had come here, re- j
cently, from Kenton, Ohio, and was now I
living on Sherman avenue. He said that
the shooting had been accidental, and that
the man who accompanied film had done it
while cleaning a pistol. Both men agreed
on the point but neither gave his name.
Whether there is more in the case than
abov e stated, is left to the perceptiv e facul

Thousands are shaking through these
badges. Thousands are dead and thousands
are sun living ' Briell) following this line
he closed with a "God bless vou."
The band then rendered in a charming
manner "Splinters," a grand medley, made
up of pretty much all the patriotic and fav
orite tunes of war tunes.
Gen. Keifer then took the floor himself,
and gave a ver) interesting address. The
substance of the preliminary portion was as
follows "Ladles and gentlemen I am
quite well phased with the gathering here
tonight. I see all together without any re
gard to rank or file. But I do not think that
there is any occasion for so much solemnity.
We are here to enjoy ourselves. I am not
ready to tell all 1 know, and I am not sure
I ought to. I want you to talk, too. If you
do not wish to tell on yourself tell on some
body else. This is only preliminary to the
banquet t follow, which will
be, as s)mbolized by this hall,
an entirel) temperate banquet Only
I do not wish )ou yourselves to be teru
perate. I want you to tell ah you know,
and more if necessary. I hope this w UI
open to a permanent organization, and I
hope this vv ill be the headquarters. It may,
perhaps, bo of interest to us all to take a
little review of that campaign "' Than the
General proceeded give a somewhat hasty
sketch of the campaign being celebrated.

ware, and an excellent assortment of orna
mental goods at whatever the)

time since such an extensiv e sale has taken

man) years again before such rare opportu

of goods. The public are taking advantage
of these rare chances to purchase Christmas
presents and jewelry needed for their own
use, and the store has been prettv well
