VOL. VII. No. 32. DEMOCRACY'S BIG RALLY. ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION GIVEN THE PARTY'S CANDIDATES. AddreHHeH Made by MCHHTH. McNeils, O'Neill, Klione, nines, O'Boyle, Rice, Scliappert and McCarthy—A Large Au dience Attended. The weather on Saturday evening was wet and unfavorable, but in spite of this disadvantage the voters of Freeland and vicinity turned out by the hundreds to hear and see the Democratic candidates, and the opera house was crowded to the doors when Burgess McLaughlin called the meeting to order. Dr. E. W. llutter was chosen as chairman and Roger Mc- Nelis as secretary. John J. McNelis was the first candidate introduced. lie made a brief appeal for the support of bis party in the legislative contest, and the hearty applause given him makes it appear that he will get it. J. F. O'Neil, Esq., of Wilkes-Barre, followed with a short address upon political affairs in general. He spoke fayorably of each of the candidates, and his remarks were well received. A pleasant surprise to the audience followed when the chairmen announced the next speaker as Judge Rhone, who was not expected, but had come here on a visit on Saturday. The judge was warmly welcomed, and although not an orator he held the attention of the audience for several minutes. Being a candidate, he did not, lie said, wish to say much about himself, except to assure the people that in the discharge of his duties, if re-elected, he will not allow politics or such to enter, and will con duct the settling of the estates of deceased with the same fairness and justice as he has always endeavored to have prevail. l)r. Rutter then introducen Congress man Mines, who was accorded an en thusiastic reception. The speaker made one of the greatest auti-protection speeches ever heard in Freeland. He proved to the satisfaction of the audience that the doctrine of the Republicans was against the best interests of the nation, and traced the "hard times" that the country has experienced directly to the legislation of that party. Mr. Hincs told of the work of the Democrats in the last session, the repeal of the silver hill, the federal election bill and finally the McKinley tariff bill. He asked his hearers not to be too hasty in condemn ing the party, because the tariff law it enacted is yet in operation only about six weeks. Coming down to his own contest he said that he was vilified and maligned by his opponent, that the latter paid SSO each for cartoons in the Klmira Telegram, also had pictures published daily in the llazleton Sentinel which reflected upon liis character. He stated that the TRI BUNE had tried to slander him and blacken his record, but did "not know at how much a line, or whether John Leisening had anything to do with it." lie said he would, while here, answer these charges, as well as the question which the Tin DUNE had asked for months, "What has Congressman Hines ever done to deserve a renomination from the Democratic party?" In answer to this he referred to the employers' liability law, which he push ed through the Pennsylvania house in 1883, and it failed in the senate. When he went to the senate he took it up there in 1891 and had it passed, but it failed again, "this time in the house, because llines was not there." He said he had secured the passage of the semi-monthly pay law, company store bill, acts relat ing to dockage, limber, mine ventilation, mine props, factory inspection, night schools and many others, some of which failed to become laws, but through no fault of his. For eighteen years, he said, he had worked unceasingly for the laboring classes. Considering that this record was a conclusive answer to the TRIBUNE'S question, he asked it to tell the people what his opponent had done for the workingmen. Returning again to tlio Republican nominee, Mr. Ilines deuounced liim as a violator of the state laws in maintain ing a company store and in not paying liis employee semi-monthly. He asked how workingmen could expect him to legislate for their interests. Continuing, he said that Mr. Leisenring was never known but to the miners of Upper Le high and Saratoga race-course jockeys until three months ago, when he bought the Republican nomination, spending about $30,000 for the same, and is now trying to buy his way into congress, by debauching the voters of the district. He next turned his attention to Dr. Neale, of Upper Lehigh, whom he claimed is trying to misrepresent him through this town. He said the doctor was living off the 75 cents a month paid him by the miners under Leisenring, and that he could well afford to Bpend his leisure time in slandering and abus ing Hines' character, but he hoped the workingmen would not be misled by these men. Before, concluding, the speaker said that he would send every voter a copy of the semi-monthly pay law before election day, and said that they could see for themselves its bene fits. He stated that the employe does not have to have this law enforced, as has been claimed by a paper in this dis trict, but that such duty is made the woik of the factory inspector. Mr. Ilines' speech was the principal one of the evening, as far as local matters went, and at its conclusion he was given considerable applause. Peter A. O'Boyle, the candidate for district attorney, was the next speaker, and in his usual eloquent style gave his opinions upon the results caused by the legislation of the Republican party for the past thirty years. He traced the rise of the millionaires of the country and showed how they have been aided with protective tariffs to become what they are today, a menace to the nation. He said their power must be broken or they will eventually control the Ameri can people so effectually that our institu tions and liberty will be nothing more than a mockery. He took Messrs. C'arnegia and Wanamaker as examples of what Republican legislation has fostered and nourished, and his words of denunciation which followed his references to their contributions to the Republican corruption fund were very bitter. Great applause followed every mention of the names of Jefferson, Jackson and Cleveland, ami his final appeal to the Democrats of Freeland to stand again by the party that has with stood the struggles of more than 100 years was framed in fanguage most beautiful. Mr. O'Boyle concluded with interest ing descriptions of the work in the offices to which his fellow-candidates aspire, and his comparison of the nominees on both tickets, from top to bottom, left im pressions in the minds of his hearers that were decidedly in favor of the Democratic candidates. John H. Rice, candidate for clerk of courts, was next introduced by Chair man Rutter, and he was tendered quite an ovation. Mr. Rice had not much to say, hut related brieily how he came to be a candidate, through the loss of his position by standing out with his rail road brethren during the late Valley strike. He asked for the support of every workingman. Jacob Schappert, candidate for prothonotary, followed with a few remarks, promising to attend to the duties of his office conscientiously and faithfully, if elected. The last speaker was our townsman, D. J. McCarthy, who was called upon without notice but responded with a good impromptu address, touching upon national, state and local issues, and con cluding with an appeal for support on behalf of Mr. MeXelis, who, he said, would live up to every promise he may make in this campaign. The meeting then adjourned with three cheers for the ticket. The Meeting at Kckley. The meeting at Eckley on Friday evening was enlivened by the drum corps of the town, which paraded the streets upon the arrival of the candi dates. T. \V. McHugh was chosen as chairman and Patrick McLaughlin as secretary. John J. MeXelis, the first speaker, called upon every Democrat to do his duty next month by going to the polls anil voting the ticket as nominated. He was followed by Congressman Hines who denouced protection and told of the difficulties in securing legislation for the public good when Democrats arc in the minority at Ilarrisburg. He also spoke of the work of his opponent, ac cusing him of violating the laws, besides buying his nomination and corrupting the public press with the use of "boodle." John J. Brislin, of Sugar Notch, came next and praised the nominees, as they were all men who had raised themselves from the lowest walks of life by their own efforts. Hea'so paid some atten tion to the A. P. A., denouncing it as an un-American society and calling upon voters everywhere to strike at it by voting against any man who sympathizes with religious proscription. Peter A. O'Boyle followed with a speech upon the issues of the day, trac ing the histories of the various political parties and showing how the Democrats have outlived them all. He was listen ed to with much attention and his clear cut arguments had an appreciable effect upon his hearers. Messrs. Rice and Schappert followed with brief remarks. "Slavonic Truth." The first issue of the Slavonic Truth, of this place, made its appearance on Saturday afternoon. It is a four-column folio, and u will be published weekly in the interest of the Slavonian residents of the coal regions. It has started out with a good circulation, and the TRIBUNE wishes it unbounded success. In politics the Truth is Republican. Additional locals on fourth page.

How and where can you lay out this money to the best advantage? A dozen stores are urging their claims, but you can only spend your money once. After . you've spent it, you'll congratulate or "kick" yourself, as the case may be, all the rest of the season. Every store claims to have "lower prices" and "bet ter goods" than others. How can you tell which is the right one? Try Refo wich, he thinks he can please you. It will cost you nothing to look at his stock. All his goods are new, bright and of the latest style and suits will be made to order at ready-made prices. He has no rent to pay and can easily do it. The best fits are guaranteed and clothing made by him will be kept in repair free for one year. Nothing like this has ever been seen in Freeland before. Give him a call. Square treatment assured.
