The leadine men in Entr
land, where men's styles are
set, now wear overcoats so
baggy that an American would
ieel lost in them. If he wants
to lose himself we are prepared
to help him. We can furnish
him an overcoat so big that a
bill collector would have hard
work to find him in it.
Or, we can give him a gar
ment ol which we can grab a
handful of cloth between the
shoulders, pulling it smooth
over the chest, and facing him
before the mirror, say, "Dot
goat vits you like de baber on
de vail."
On the other hand, we can
cover him with a coat that will
touch easily at all points, drape
gracefully, and equal in every
thing a garment made to or
der, except the price. This
is from 20 to "30 per cent,
We allow no ill-fitting coat
to leave our store. We guar
antee artistic completeness
and personal satisfaction. We
have the finest lot of Fall
Overcoats in this market. We
invite you to inspect them.

Puns, Oct 12 As tho natural conse.
iiuenre of the newspaper attention which
has been shown Mr. Blaine, he Is becoming
more cautious and reserved day by day. In
England and Germany he occasionally gave
his thoughts a little play of expression,
but his tendency of speech since coming to
Paris has been in Imitation of the sphinx.
Mr. Hlaine in the heat of political discus
sion or the excitement of political conver
sation cannot avoid saying things
that look ugly In print s
to guard against these poasible mistakes
he has begun to establish an autocracy or
acquaintance and to Insist that politics
shall not be mention d in his presence. Ot
the troops of admiring Americans who have
called at his hotel during the week not to
exceed half a dozen hae been received.
General Meredith Keod, the veteran Amer
ican consul to Paris, got no further than
Mrs. Maine. It C. Kerins. the vice presi
dent of the St Louis, Arkansas Jt Texas
railway, has been Mr. Maine's companion
for dajs.
Shortly after Mr. Blaine arrived at Horn
burg he received a letter from Mr. Kerins,
who was then about to leave Ixmdon for
Berlin, saving that he (Kerins) was anx
ious for a meeting to consider a matter of
inisrtance. This may have been a stock,
bom! or some other investment but no evi
dence of the fact has been found. Kerins
subsequently met Mr. Blaine In Homburg
by telegraphic appointment, remaining an
entire day with him, and rejoined htm here.
Mr. Kerins stated that Mr. Blame, was
never In better health, that the stories
about his being ill were ridiculous, and that
he was perfectly at ease mentally and
physically. In the classic language of Mr.
Kerins, "He Isn't bothering his head about
politics, and doesn't ask any odds of any

The great waterw heel shops ,of Jaim
Lcllel A Co., on the C. C. C. I. tracks, just
otf LagniutTavenue in the east end, had un
uncomfortably narrow- escape from being
consumed by lire last (Tuesdaj ) evening,
but fortunately escaped with the burning
only of the core oven, with a loss which
the superintendent. John Dalle, estluiatee
at fromSl,000to51,:t00oiily. Thocoreoven
adjoins the main building on tho east and
had the tire communicated to the larger
structure the loss would have been terrib'e
as the department fought the flames with
almost no water.
Early vestenlay morning tile large
twenty-four inch water main running from
the pumping house to the stand pipe, and
supplying all the eastern portion of the
city, burst near the creek, on account of a
defect in an iron section. This eut off all
the water from Frank Fisher's place at the
commencement of Lagunda avenue clear to
thevillace of Lagonda. Chief Simpson
ordeied the old lire engines on duty in case
of a tire and the precaution was a most
wise one.
At ten minutes past 10 o'clock an alarm
was turned In from Nix V, corner Nelson
street and Lagomla avenue, and a .moment
later a general alarm brought out all the
companies. The lire was found to be lo
cated In the frame covering to the eore
oveuofthe shops, a frame structure of
two stories, and about 40 by 20 feet In
size. The fire had gained a large head
way when the department arrived, and
there was no water to be had except wha'
the old Western engine could pump from
the cistern at the corner of Nelscn and
Lagonda avenue. This was over half a
mile from the tire, but nothing else was
available. By combiniitk tlw resources of
the three companies, 2,M)0 feet of hose
w as soon laid and a single and rather
weak stream of water was directed upon
the tire which was devouring the roof of
the core-oven in a merry fashion. In the
absence of more water and to prevent a
spread of the tire the firemen pulled down
the sides of the building with their great
hooks, and after taking off the roof, the
fire was finally controlled, chiefly from
lack of material. The cornice of the main
building was badly i charred, and It took
just an hour and twenty minutes' work to
subdue the flames with the weak resources
on band.
1 lie losses stated, will range from 51,000
to S1.300, and Is fully covered by insurance
in a dozen companies. The company will
not lose a daj's work, as the portion burnt
was simply a frame covering the three great
brick ovens or kilns containing the cores,
and these were noldamand. It Is sup
posed that the fire originated from the
ovens, which are constantly kept at an in
tense heat Had the flames communicated
to the boiler house, as they seemed likely
to do, the company would have sustained
heavj damages through loss of time.
1 his is the second (ire in the east end
this week, and the people of that vlciiilt)
are impressed by It. The water main was
repaired at ::::'0 this a. in., and the water
turned on again.

The demonstration in honor of Senator
John Sherman and ex-Governor Edward F.
Xoves, last evening, was a grand oue. The
Plug Hat Itrigade made a splendid showimt
aud duplicated some of Its former triumphs
in points of numbers and display. At a
little alter 7:20, the column designed to
escort the distinguished speakers to the
wigwam, formed in the Arcade, headed by
Col. Harvey Arbngast and Adjutant E. M.
Campbell. Tin re were fully 500 men In
line, and the neat white plugs showed up
prettily conspicous. The column formed in
open order ami divided to allow the dis
tinguished gentlemen to pass down the
ranks Tho column then counter-marched
In the Arcade and too!; up Its march as es

Tlie 3Ircting.
The audience which greeted the distin
guished gentlemen at the w igwam w as a
magnificent one. In point of size, enthusi
asm and make-up. A largei. more intelli
gent and representative assemblage ot peo
ple never gathered In the building. It was
a genuine republican love-fetst such as
will lend Its enthusiasm to the entire cam
paign. A large proportion of the auditors
were ladies, who enjojed the meeting with
a zest not exceeded by their male escorts.
A vast number of those present were work
inguien. Tlw galleries were full of people
and every inch of room down stairs was
occupied by listeners, hundreds of whom
stood patiently and willingly throughout
the evening. Cheers broke from hundreds
ot lustv throats and fairly made the build
ing quake on its foundations as Senator
SberiiuJ and Governor Nojes eulerod and
took their places on the stage.
The metting was called to order by Wnu
M. Itockel esq , secretary of the republican
central committee. Messrs. Joe Sharp,
Elton Itnisbrg, Garrett Billow and Frank
Prothero, the republican glee quartette,
sang a burlesq'ie on Cleveland to the air of
"Tit-Willow" that was handsomely ren
dered and received vvitli much enthusiasm.
Mr. ltockel, in really eloquent language,
announced a number of meetings, to which
reference has already been made in these
columns, and briefly introduced the perma
nent chairman of the mteting. Senator
Thomas J. Pringle.
Mr. Pringle was greeted with deep ap
plause as he ros? to speak. IIu said that
he had already expressed his thanks to the
committee for the honorable but not labor
ous duty to which he had been assigned.
It was the prov ince only of a chairman of
such a meeting to ; reside, settle points
and keep the general peace of the meet
ing; and he was ful'y convinced
that such was the chiraeter ot the distin
guished speakers, in principle, in politics,
and in patrioli-m. that he would have no
occasion to "call them to order." He had
the pleasure of introducing a gentleman
whose name Is a household word: whose
reputation in all civ ilt7ed nations is coex
tensive with his fame hen; whose abilities
and statemaiiship have challenged and
won the admiration ot all parties; a great
financier, a distinguished patriot who has
added luster to the Buckeye state; who.
for twentj -live jears. like some tall steeple
high, has towered about his fellowmen. a
monument of the State's glory; a pillar of
strength to his party and to his couutry;
Hon. John Sherman.
The applause 'vhich followed this superb
Introduction and was lightened as Mr.
Sherman arose and faced the sea of humani
ty, now stormy ith enthusiasm was some
thing indescribable. At Its conclusion, the
distinguished .statesman comiiiiiiced to
speak, and for an hour kept the audience
enchained by his eloquence. He said, in

profound pleasure and a deep sense of re
sponsibility that 1 appear before such an
audience as this to discus., the great issues
of this campaign. The election is one of
the must iiuportaut in the history ot the
state. It is a trite saj ing, to assert that
such is the case, but any one who will scan
the political horizon must b impressed by
the fact We are soon to be called upon to
i'ercie the divi e right of suffrage a
glorious right which constitutes
a dlstinjuishliig mark between Bus
sia, ruled by a despotism of steel, and
America, where every man Is a sovereign.
Every man has a sacred duty to perform
by voting a duty even more than that
which he owes to his family, becats
upon the pit-e and intelligent exercise of
this prerogative depends the prosperity of
the greatest nation on the face of the earth
a nation which will ultimately become
the model of all governments.

uiMin to elect state ollicers and legislative
bodies. When j ou elect a general assem
bly you transfer and intrust to it all the
povvervou possess and'abnegate in Its favor.
Its importance tlun cannot be too deeply
dwelt upon.
First, as to a governt r, 1 an glad to state
that it is already settled among the think
ing men of both parties that the re-election
of Governor 1- oraker is a great certainty.
This ought to be and will be so. Because
In the first place he had shown great ability
ind governing with a singular skill, has
cast his reflection liejond the limits of his
State, lie it was who has said to a Presi
dent of the United Slates, rims far and
no farther," In the Infamous rebel flag
m itter, in which Cleveland, by a special
rder, sought to return to the rebel South
treasures which hail been paid for with the
lifebloodof thoustmls of bloody slain.
Foraker had said "riiusfar and no far
ther," ami now the tattered lltgs sleep
safely under the national banner. For
aker's record is a brilliant and superb one.
Next in order is the election af a legisla

either republican or democratic the other
parties are not et strong enough to hope
to carry it. In the last four ) ears we have
had specimen bricks of both democratic and
republican legislatures Let us compare
Take the late democratic legislature. Up
first act was to strike off about 52,000.000 a
J ear of revenue from the sale of intoxicat
ing drinks. Hoadly was governor. There
was a good balance in the treasury left by
Foster, jut no sooner did the democratic
.mil net into Ohio's financial china shop
than it plaed havoc with the reserve
money, exhausted its resources and con
sumed all the money coming to it in the
Its record is a standing reproach and a
lasting shame aud it will go down through
history forever as the boodle legislature.
tVhat worthy act did this infamous legisla
uire do? B) common consent it was
turned out. never, please heaven to return
gain. The republicans exposed the
tltgrant frauds that had germinated in this
ho irbou hot-bed. and Kenned.s hammer
suppressed them, rhe guilty democrats fled
audGod knows I wish they had nevet
come back. Laughter and applause.
Ou the other hand. let us consider the
late republican legislature one of the
tb'est puret and most faithful that ever
assembled in the great state of Ohio.
Note some of the laws that it passed:
Appropriating StO.OOO to erect Ohio monu
ments at Gett(burg; providing for an Ohio
soldiers' home and appropriating 8150,000
for its construction; exempting every hon
orably discharged soldier from certain un
desirable conditions; providing for a three
tenths of a mill tax for indigent soldiers:
requiring children of ex-Union soldiers to
be taken from the poor houses and placed in
the state home in Xenla.
See the magnificent record of what the
legislature enacted in the way ot laws for
the amelioration of labor.
It amended the semi-monthly wage pay
ment law; it amended the lien law to ex
clude laborers, meclnnlcs and sub-contractors;
It passtsl a law prohibiting others than
citizens acting as sheriffs and constables; it
amended the child labor law: it made eight
hours a daj s wont.
hat did it do for the farmers the back
bone of our nation?
It provided against Hie adulteration of
food products and established a food and
lairy commission: it specially provided
against the adulteration of dairy products:
and last but not least, it enacted laws to de
feat the infamous Bohemian oat swindle.
Other great acts of this superb legislature
were the making of election laws to pre
vent such scenes as w er enacted In Cin
cinnati; it repealed the black laws, making
all men free and equal, and giving colored
people equal rights.
1 his brilliant series declares the repub
lican party to be the party of all classes
the fanner, the laborer, the black man.
Thank God. we are all men together, equal

Senator Sherman at this point stated that
Mr. I. F. McDonald, of this city, union
labor candidate for lieutenant-governor,
had handed him twelve questions on the
labor problem, which he would answer
fully ami clearly. But first he wished to
state what the attitude of himself and the
laboring man toward the republican party
Is. All demands made by labor should re
ceive prompt and iiutuiHliate attention.
Every wise law should be passed which
contemplates its improvement Three-
fourths of us are latnrers. I am here to
prove, not by the spurious arguments of
deinagoguery. but truly and sincerely,
that the republican party is the friend of
labor. We ought to legislate to advance
the laboring man and 1. for one. shall
heartilv concur in it. Some things are vir
tually necessary to his advancement.
Among these are:
The distribution of property. Europe is
pauperized and ties! down by entailment
T he Increase of all forms of production.
The making of laws providing for the
equalization of work and labor an honest

The republican party Is the only party
that has done these things. All Its meas

Senator Sherman then took up the ques
tions which had been addressed to him in
the following letter :
Hon. John Sherman-
As Per arrangement In our brief inter
view this afternoon, 1 herewith submit the
following questions for jour consideration.
w ith a vie w to obtaining the highest author
ity and Information thereon:
First What beneiit to the people at
large was the exception to the clause on
the back of the greenback act of Febru
ary 25, 1S2 ?
Second, the contraction oi tnecurrency
from lso"i to lS'iS.
Third. The credit strengthening act of
March lb, ISt'.O. four jtars after the war
and when binds wera at a premium.
Fourth. The hoarding of legal tender
stiver coi.i In the treasury instead of ap
plvingit to the pavment and reduction of
the interest bearing debt?
Fifth. The withdrawal of the legal
tender quality of the greenback or the re
tirement of the same as President Hayes
and vourself recommended iu jour annual
Sixth. Does not law make and unmake
money? If not what dees?
Seventh. Would It not be better for
congress to control monopolies than (or
seem to no at present?
Eighth. How can it benefit the laboring
classes to take the tantr off of raw mater
ial and leave our ports open to the paiqe-r
labor of the world to come in and compete,
with them in manufa'-tiirlng it.
Very respectfully submitted.
I. F. McDonam..
Nominee for lieutenant-governor on the
Union Labor ticket.
Senator Sherman's answers to the above
questions weresubstantiallv and esseiitiaflv
as follows;
First It was absolutely necessary at the
beginning of the war to provide sony
method tor securing coin. The clause on
the greenback referred to by my friend,
Mr. McDonald, makes the bill good for the
pavment of all debts except duties on im
ports and interest on the publicdebt These
must be paid in com, and as much of such
pajmenls are made by foreigners, we bv
that clause compelled foreigners to furnish
us with the necessary coin.
Second There was no contraction of the
currency between those j ears except that
caused by the pavment of the ." 05 bonds.
The law contracting the currency SI, 000, 000
per month was soon repealed and ever since
1 have been a member of congress 1 have
been opposed to contraction of the cur
rency. Third That act was passed by congress
so that no more bonds would be paid In
greenbacks, as it wasjiletennined to pay off
all bonds at maturity In coin
Fourth There is a sort of fallacy in
this question. We know that If we forced
the silver on the people, it would be de
preciated in value, because it is tiM bulkv.
We, therefore, issued the silver certificates
for the convenience of the people. 1 stood
by the issue of our paper money our
greenbacks. Why, I'm the best green
backer In the house tonight. Our paper
money Is as good as gold. It is the l.e,t
money ever prov ided for the people, and
passes at par in every country of the civ
ilized world.
Fifth The recommendations were never
adopted and nothing was ev er done about
Sixth No law ever did or ever can make
money. Congress may coin money and
Issue promises to pay money greenbacks
are such promises but there is no money
except that which has intrinsic value.
Seventh Yes. of course. I agree with
my friend on that point perfectly. But
what Is a monopoly? A monopoly is the
exclusive right to do something that nobody
else can do. A national baak, for instance.
Ls not a monopoly, for any rive citizens of
this city or any city of the country can
start a bank, the only proviso being that
they must have the money. Such a question
as this is demagogy.
Eighth This question ought to be put to
some democrat (Laughter). When Pow
ell or some other democrat comes here I
want my friend. Mr. McDonald, to ask him
this question, for I agree w th him myself.
Democrats now propose to put wool on
the free list and thus break up the wool in
dustry among our farmers, and then admit
iron ore free of duty and thus close up our
iron mines. This will destroy the whole
protective svsteru of our country.
If these are all the matters our union
labor friends have to complain of they
ought to go to bed happy tonight
senator Sherman then gve a review of
the frauds that have been perpetrated on
the ballot by the democracy, aud told of the
suppression of the republican "ote in the
south. Said he: The time is comingwhen
we will find a remedy for these crjing
evils. Congress may regulate the election
of its members, and it will see that every
man votes and that that vote Is honestly
counted. He concluded with a stronf "Ne
foraII republicans to stand by the party
and not be enticed away by any annex to
the democratic party.

Governor Xoyes began by telling a racy
anecdote, which at once put his auditors
in good humor. He then led them along
through a statement of the financial man
agement of this state by democrats and re
publicans, and demonstrated with cold,
hard facts how the democracy at no
earlier period than Governor Houl-
Iv's administration had brought Onio
to the very verge of financial ruin. His
scathing denunciation of the notorious
Boodle Legislature was heartily enjoyed ba
ttle vast audience. He reviewed Governor
Foraker's administration and the facts and
figures which he quoted from the records
commended themselves to the good sense of
the people. He paid a glowing tribute to
Ohio's gallant Governor. Said he: All the

which he had made before nis election,
which he had not kept and of the things
he hail done which he had not promi-ed to
do. Among the latter was the vetoing of
105 pension bills which bad been passed by
a democratic house and a republican senate
and the making of them the occasion for
jocose remarks in statu papers about
the old. crippled soldiers. His plctuie of
the treatment of the old soldiers of France.

concluded with a review of the republican
part's works and an exhortation to all to
stand by that party which had not only
saved the country, but had brought tbou:
more good to the country than all other
agencies combined.
Three musing cheers were given for
Governor Foraker and the great meeting
closed with a hanJ-shakiug social in which
Senator Sherman and Governor Noves
were the co ispicuous figures.

This morning before Senator Sherman
and ex-Governor Noves left the citv they
were ace m.aniid by Gen. Bushnell and

distinguished gentlemen made short ad
dresses to the hundred young students and
gave them some good sound talk on busi

were as much p'eased with their visit as the
students were honored bv their presence.
