TWENTY THOUSAND PERSONS CHEER THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEES. Cleveland and Stevensou Receive uu Ova tion at Madison Square Garden, New York, and Are Informed of the Action of the Convention at Chicago. NEW YORK, July 21.— The first decisive gun of the Democratic campaign of 1892 was touched off last night in Madison Square garden in the presence of a vast as semblage. The huge auditorium was packed from pit to dome with 20,000 persons. The occasion that brought this vast throng to gether was the notification ceremonies ol the two great leaders of the Democratic party—Grover Cleveland and Adlai E. Ste venson. The platform had a seating capacity foi 760 persons, but it had 1,000 on it before the central figures, in one of the most brilliant New York lias seen in many months, appeared. Mrs. Cleveland and party entered a box about 8 o'clock, and this gave tho crowd a chance to give vent to some of their pent up enthusiasm. Quiet had scarcoly been restored when a mighty chorus of cheers broke out, and there woa a universal waving of hands and arms, hats, handkerchiefs and fans. Then John M. Bowers, escorting Adlai E. Steven son, appeared. Mr. Stevensou gracefully acknowledged the plaudits with a bow. Tho concert pitch of enthusiasm was struck when, surrounded by a group of nob able men, the leader of the Democracy and of tariff reform made his way to the front of the platform. The cheering and plaudit* that hml gone before were as nothing comporod to the ovation tendered Mr. Cleveland, who looked impressed with the magnitude of the gathering and the won drous scene it presented as each and every man and woman stood on their feet ap plauding In tho most enthusiastic manner. He bowed his thanks again and again, but the din and noise continued for many min utes, and the secretary of the notification committee, Nicholas M. Bell, finally arose in despair and entreated the crowd to be silent. It was, however, a fruitless task, and nothing was left but to begin tho exer cises. Colonel Wilson, of West Virginia, approached tho rostrum and Grover Cleve land rose to listen to the speech of notifica tion. Hon. Nicholas M. 801 l then read the let ter of notification from the notification meeting. The crowd, when the Democratic standard bearer stepped forward to make response, again lost control of their enthu siasm. The din was deafening and long sustained. Finally Mr. Cleveland began to speak and the storm suddenly abated. He was listened to thereafter with much atten tion, and plaudits only came when his utter ances pleased his hearers. Cleveland's Speech of Acceptance. Hfit CIIAIUMAN AND GENTLEMEN—The rnes sago you deliver from the national Democracy arouses within me emotions which would be well nigh overwhelming if I did not recognize horo assembled the representatives of a great party who must share with mo tho responsibil Ity your mission invitos. I find much relief in the reflection that I have been selected merely to stand for the principles and purposes to which my party is pledged, and for tho en forcement and supremacy of which all who have any right to claim Democratic fellowship must constantly and persistontly labor. Never has a great party, intent upon the promotion of right and justice, hud tetter in centive for effort thun is now presented to us. Turning our eyes to tho plain people of the land we see them burdenod as consumers with a tariff system that unjustly and relentlessly de mands from them in tho purchase of the neces saries and comforts of life an amount scarcely met by tho wages of hard and steady toil, while I the exactions thus wrung from them build up and ipcrooso the fortunos of those for whose benefit thla injustico Is i>erpetuatod. We see the farmer listening to a deluslvo Btory that Alls hi* mind with visions of udvantago, whilo bis pocket is robbed by the stealthy baud of high protection. Our worklngmen are still told tho talo, oft re peated In spite of its demonstrated falsity, that the oxisting protective tariff is u boon to them, and that under its beneficent operation their wages must Increase—whilo as they listen scenes are enacted in tho very abiding place of high protection that mock the hopes of toil and attest tho tender mercy the workingman re ceives from those made solftsh and sordid by unjuat governmental favoritism We oppose earnestly and stubbornly the theory upon which our opponents seek to justify and uphold existing tariff laws. We need not base our at tacs upon questions of constitutional perrais- Hionor legislative power. Wo denounce this theory upon tho highest possible ground when we ooutend that in present conditions its opera tion la unjust, and that laws enacted in accord ance with it are inoquitablo and unfair. Workitiguien and the Tariff. Ours is not a destructive party. We are not at enmity with the rights of any of our citi zens. All are our countrymen. We are not recklaaaly heedless of any American interests, nor wQI wo abandon our regard for them; but Invoking the love of fairness and justice which belongs to true Americanism, and upon which our constitution rests, we insist that no plau of tariff legislation shall be tolerated which has for its object and purpose a forced contri bution from the earnings and incorao of the mass of our citizenH, to swell directly the ac cumulations of a favored few; nor will we permit a pretended solicitude for American labor, or any other specious pretext of benev olent care for others, to blind the eyes of tho people to the selfish schemes of those who seek through tho aid of unequal tariff laws to gain unearned and unreasonable advantages at the expense of their fellows. We have also assumed In our covenant with those whose Hupport wo Invite the duty of op posing to the death another avowed scheme of our adversaries, which, under the guise of pro tecting the suffrage, covers but does not con ceal a design thereby to perpetuate the power of a party afraid to trust its continuance to the untramoled and intelligent votes of the Amer ican people. , We fu pledged to rooist the leglnlstlon In tended to complete this scheme, because we have not forgotten the saturnalia of theft and brutal control which followed another federal regulation of state suffrage; because we know that the managers of a party which did not scruple to rob the people of a president would not hesitate to use thy machinery created by such legislation to revive corrupt instrumen talities for partisan purposes; because an at tempt to force such legislation would rekindle animosities where peace and hopefulness now prevail; because such an attempt would replace prosperous activity with discouragement and dread throughout a large section of our coun try, and would menace everywhere in the land the rights reserved to the states and to the people which underlie the safeguards of Amer ican liberty. I cannot, therefore, forbear reminding you and afl those attached to the Democratic party, or supporting the principles which we profess, that defeat in the pending campaign, followed by the consummation of the legislative schemes our opponents contemplate and accompanied by such other incidents of their success as might more firmly fix their power, would pre sent a most discouraging outlook for future Democratic supremacy and for the accom plishment of the ohjocts we have at heart. Moreovor, every sincere Democrat must be liove that the interests of hia country are deep ly Involved in the victory <sf our party in the struggle that awaits us. Thus patriotic solid tude sxaltstbe hope of partisanship and should intensify our determination to win success. It only remains tot mo to say to you, In ad vance of a more formal response to your mes sage, that f obey the command of my party pad pooftdenttj anticipate that an intelligent and earnest presentation of our cause will in sure a popular indorsement of the action of the body you represent. There was one more burst of concluding applause as Grover Cleveland took his seat, and then came the speech of notification, made by Stephen &L White, of California, to Adlui E. Stevenson. Stevenson's Acceptance. Adlai E. Stevenson listened closely to the speech of Mr. White and to the official noti fication read to him by Mr. Bell. He then stepped to the extreme edge of the plat form, and bowing to the thunderous ap plause which again belched forth he said in clear, ringing tones: MR. CHAIRMAN AND GENTLEMEN OF THE COMMITTEE- 1 cannot too earnestly express my appreciation of the honor conferred upon me by the great delegated assembly which you officially represent. 1 am not unmindful, Mr. Chairman, of the grave responsibilities which uttach to the great office for which I have been named. I may be pardoned for quoting in this connection the words of the honored patriot, Thomas A. Hen dricks, when officially informed that ho had boon designated by his party for the vice presidency in 1884. lie said: "I know that sometimes it Is understood that this particular office aoes not involve much re sponsibility, and as u general rulo that Is so. But sometimes it comes to represent vory great responsibilities, and it may be so in the uoar future. Tho two parties In tho senate being so nearly evenly divldod, the vice presi dent may have to decide upon questions of law by tho exercise of the costing vote. Tho re sponsibility would then becolhe very groat. It would not then be tho responsibility of rep resenting a district or a state. It would be the responsibility of representing tho wholo country, and tho obligation would be to the judgment of tho wholo country. And that vote when thus cast should be in obedience to the just expectations and requirements of the people of the United States." Should it please my countrymen to call me to this office, tho high appreciation of its dig nity and of its responsibilities as expressed in the utterancos and illustrated In tho public life of tho emineut statesman whom I havo men tioned will Lo A light to my own pathway. At the conclusion of Mr. Stevenson's speech Chairman Wilson declared the meet ing adjouruod. HARRITY ELECTED CHAIRMAN The Pennsylvanian Will Conduct the Cleveland Campaign.
