Tfie; Illalne and Logon Club in creasing In Numbers-Report of Pnschnl's Speech. The headquarters of the Illalne And Iogan elnh, situated at the Postoflloe Exchange Pavilion, were crowded Sat urday evening by about 230 persons. Judge Wesley Ogden, In tho absence of the President, opened tho meeting, lie stated that the club had opened a read ing room which adjoined the club room, nnd Informed the audience It was free to all to peruse the ample quan tity of campaign literature that would be found there. He further said that tho sound of Illalne and Logan was rising from Maine to Georgia, nnd on the 4th of Novemberthey would hear the triumphant shout throughout the United States of Blaine and Logan. Mr. flrlllln Is tho first speaker to entertain you this evening, and In him you will hear from an Irishman, and the Irish man will be told bis duty In the great canvass from the speaker now before you. Mr. Gerald Orlllln then delivered a speech, demonstrating the reasons why Irishmen should enroll themselves under the banner of ltepubllcanlsm. The Gleo club then sung "When Johnny Comes Marching Home." Judge Ogden said ' he liked the song very much, but wished the name was Jimmy Instead of Johnny. The Hon. George Paschal, who was the next speaker, said : Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Club The question Is going forth throughout the length and breadth of this broad land, who Is to be the next Trcildent of this great union ? It Is an swered pro and con In a thousand ways, and a thousand different reasons are given why Blaine will be successful, and n thousand different reasons are given why Blalno should be defeated. Our opponents ?gtve their reasons. We, as Itepubllcans, aro able to give the rea sons why he will be the next President. There is one great towering and over shadowing reason why Blalno and Lo gan ought to be President and Vice. President of this great country ; first, beeauso they are tho standard bearers of tho great Republican party (applause) , which holds the destinies of this great country In. Its hand, and will be held while there Is n semblance of National Democracy to fight. This they tell us Is a reform year. Ah I let It be so. Itepubllcans have never been laggard when reform has been the Issue. There Is no reason why you will not see James G. Blaine Inaugurated on the 4th of Maroh, 188."; because when tho American people In 1SC0, In their majesty, might and power arose and wrested tho helm of States Government from a decaying and corrupt Democracy, when they rotused to rcstoro It In 18(il, again in 1803, again In 1872, and 1870, and again In 1880, so they will refuse In 1S8I, nnd so will they refuse always. Yes, this Is a reform year, and has It struck any of you gentlemen that tho .Democrat fo party has Inducted the greatest circus and biggest menagerie ever brought before the American people with a snout of "reform r" What do they do llrst f They meet In Chicago, they catoh stook for their menagerie by tutting a life-preserver around their eels Instead of around their shoul ders; they throw the poor animal In the water and exneothlm to swim; this reform animal, like tho kangaroo, is all tall and no head, and they expect the poor animal; to run. Laughter and applause. In an expiring effort to gain the attention of the American pec- ile they stood the animal on bis head great laughter and applause) and tami ng a ring around him and say, behold our reform animal, first captured by the great Tammany chief, John Kelley, In Erie, having been recaptured by the glorious old Democratic rtartv In the wilds of wloked Chicago (great laughter and enthusiastic applause) and now plaoed on view to the American people up. walk up, ami behold this reform animal, be lias 12 stripes around his body, representing that lie Is for reform during the 12 months of the year, and one around the stub of his tall, denoting the 13 lunar months; he is reform nil over. Like all well regulated menageries, they put a big X. II. at the bottom of the programme requesting that every white culm under 12 years of age will Veep away from this animal's cage. He has not enough reform for the fath erless and starving bovs of irreat New York city. Ho believes the laboring man auouiu ue maue io riue iwice a ua at a 10 cent fare for the nurnose of swell lngiitc revenues oi samuei j muen and the elevated railroad stocks. This Is the reform animal we are called upon to deal with. You would think that the ghosts of all the departed reformers of the world bad taken possession of the Demooratlo party. Who have they come to reform f When did this work of re form commence r This work of reforma tion, tariff reformers, were masquerad ing through the length and breadth of the land. They remind me very inuoli of one ot .Esop's fables, the lion olothed In the ass skin. When did they becomereformers f Is it sincere; wo could go as far baok as 1800 to find out whether this party Is sincere? Hut is thero any necessity to commence later than 1872 f What were they doing then ? Were they shouting for reform in 1872 ? No higher tariff had e,ver existed In this oountry. Kven tho war tarlffof 1812 was by no means to be compared with the tariff of 1872. Iteductlons have been made since then, but 1872 marks the highest notch the tarlffhad overreached. When they met In Baltimore did they have any dissensions on this high tariff of 1872 f No I The took up the apostle of high protective tariff. A man who had dedloated his lire to It (the late lamented Horaoe Greeley). What was their platform? Had they recognized the fact that great number of great and good men of the Democratic nart v were not agreed upon the subject ot. the tariff? Ho they say: "We will say nothing about It, but give It to the people. What Is this wild cry lo-oayr jiccmu.o mcr uio been driven nolnt by point, step by step from every position which they have as sumed from 1800 to the present day. When It wa declared that specie pay ments should be Immediately resumed, not a speech was msde by the Demo crats but that the orator would foretell the calamities likely to ensue. They shouted themselves hoarse by saying that the corrupt Itadlcals would ruin the country, for tho Goulds nnd the VAn dcrbllts would rush upon these $10,000, 000 of currency, and lot and behold the uovemmeni woum ue uaunmin. jii the year lscu specie payments were an accomplished fact, and not a ripple was inniln nn ttin markets of the countrr. The Democratic party's foresight was thing which they leave us Is tariff, and, gentlemen, I will sny but a few words upon It. I propose by war of illustration that we slnirlo out one or two products which will show me lauacy upon wmcu mejr tvbiuu hi Iron in any of its shapes or forms as produocd In this country. It Is n little dry, but It must carry conviction. In 1870, as the records In Congress will show, Abraham Hewitt, the Chairman of theKxecutlve committee, arose In bis place In tne House or congress, anu told his adherents and tho world and the country, that the only difference In the price of Iron where it Is produced In England and this country, Is but the dlflerence we pay to our laborers. In other words he proclaimed tho protec tive duty on Iron thus protects the worklngman and not the manufacturer, but the Democrat says we are fostering Industries to crush the Industries of this country; we hurl it back to them and say it Is for the purpose of protecting the laborer. Go hack to 1800, up to that time we did not manufacture one pound of Bessemer steel rails, what wo were paying $150 per ton for, and England sworo by all the holy pokers In the world, they could not bo manuractureu for less, and the English papers teemed with arguments that It could not be manufactured for less, and even then It was a losing game, and It was far better to pav S1W a ton to Kngland than to manufacture rails In our own country. Our Democratic party would have lis tened to this, but wo went straight ahead. What was the result? To-day Besslmer steel rails can be had in Pitts burg at the rate or $29 n ton. This Is the kind or argument we are called upon to answer in defence or tne inuusiries. The nextjargument the Itepubllcans will bo called upon to answer will be that it is better to be bound In English chains. Already has England stretched forth her withering blight of free trade, and what aro our Democratic friends doing? They have extended their palsied grasp hair way across the Atlantlo to shake her bony finger, and are to-day shouting Allelulah to the Cobden club. There Is but one staple Industry In this Stato which requires legislative aid. It Is a protective duty upon our sheep hus bandry. What and whera do we find this reform In the Democratic party up on this question onlyretorms to Blielve the man who had the oourago to get up In his place In Congress to vote for a table In this Industry. This Is thcreform argument used by a gentleman who Is honored by a Democratle nomination at New Braunfels but a week since Is far worse than the principle he advocated. It Is nothing more than a cold-blooded calculation or votes, and It Is an arrange ment of party, the arraignment or the cotton men and the farmers against the sheep Industry. Is there not enough statesmanship left In the Demooratlo Baity to say you are In no wise hurt? h no, statesmanship is deserted, and he looks to the cold steel by saying that tho cotton men and farmers have more votes than the sheepmen, and I go to Congress. But in this argument there Is something not dreamt of In his philosophy. In that dream Is Involved the very destruction or the cotton man himself. Turn to 1810 nnd you can verify It. Wool then was put upon n free list and could be brought from Australia or New Zealand and placed on the market at Boston at 11 cents a pound, cotton remained at 5 cents, each pound raised representing a loss. Cotton producers were bankrupt and the sheep men were taking dollars as big as a cart wheel, and perhaps some of the old gray headed gentlemen I can see In this audience will still re member as to the price that cotton went at then, and Is it to be supposed that the argument of Judge Hancock two ytars ago, that it was better that the cheep should be wiped out than that they should pay such a price for their blank ets and old hats. Presuming his argu ment that we would then be able to buy wool at Boston for 10 cents, tell me do you suppose, being the superior of the two productions that It is going to re main nt 10 cents a pound. Cotton Is to ward wool as silver Is toward gold, then tho argument Is used, why not protect the cotton man. Gentlemen, that Is the argument of the politician. Nature and nature's God has protected the cotton man. She has given to this sunny South n climate nnd soil unequalled to any on the globe. It has been tried without success In Africa, India and in Ceylon by the force of British gold. She has been driven to Its acknowledgement be cause Belial has been written wherever and whenever she tried to produce It. Nature has given It to the Southern States. But England Is not satisfied with this, she controls three-fourths of all th wool trade. How long will cot ton remain King? The cotton man was so fondly appealed to by the candi date who wishes to represent us. Cot ton will come down where it went to In 1840, and In less than 10 years every one or the cotton States will be bankrupt, and the argument will not be answered by saying that It is bound to reduoe Its prices. We want to have the wool to sell and England will 'not want all our cotton. Now, if this thing Is to pro ceed, gentlemen, and we are to protect our own Industry here, how are we go ing to do It? Is it by a man who says he will vote for the Morrison tariff bill? I say no. When the polls open on the 4th of November go for this old Democ racy and let us lick them out. At the conclusion of the applause which followed this speech, the Glee club gave "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground." Judge Ogden then introduced the llev. Maok Henson, colored, who made an able and logical speech. The next speaker after the Rev. Maok Henson, and at the conclusion of tho singing of'John Brown's Body," by the Glee club and audience, was M. G. Anderson, who was Interrupted by continual applause. A full report, of these two speeches will appear In to morrow's I.iuiit, the demand for space forbidding their publication to-day. After M. G. Anderson bad desoended, cries of Gosling I Hal Gosling I were heard from all parts of the andlenoe. In answer to these repeated calls our popu lar United State Marshal ascended the rostrum and said that perhaps In view or the pleasant entertainment Ihey had t had he would not ask them to listen to I hi in that evening, especially as he hail ! occupied them on two evrnlnirs. lie ! said he was always ready tn raise his voice, for ho always had a few words left as a standard bearer until the first Tuesday In November, when there wnuld'beno necessity for It. He then said he would make an excuse that night. Judge Ogden then said he wanted tho audience to listen to him a moment. It was then late, and he took the responsibility upon himself or asking Marshal Gosling not to mske a lrncthv speech that evenlnc. They had called upon him every night soiaranu ne uiu nor wannouro up their material In one night. The speaker concluded his speech by telling all to come un and register and to con tribute what they could afford. The meeting cioseu uy me uiee ciuu sinking "Marchlm? Throunh Ueorirla." Many more new members were' registered at the end of the meetlnganu subscriptions amounting to $15 03 were received. RECORDER'S COURT. John Peters was fined $" for striking W. Chlppell.

VOLKSFEST. The city Attorney's Opinion On a Legal Point. The Volksfest association, at the last session, petitioned that honornblo body for permission to charge nn admission fee to the San Pedro springs during the celebration of the Volksfest. This was granted conditionally that the City At torney saw no Illegality In the granting of such permission. That olllclal states that while he is free to confess that the congregation of such a large concourse of people who would be attracted to the city by the Volksrest would be of great Importance to the city, he was forced to the conclusion, by weight or evidence, that the demand of the association to charge an admission fee to the San Pedro springs pars: would be a restriction on the rights of the public, to Its free and uninterrupted use and enjoyment not sanctioned by usage and unauthorized uy law.

Yesterday a large party or pleasure seekers took advantage of the excursion to New Braunfels, where the Casino and Turner societies had determined to give a plonlo, the location selected be ing the Comal springs park, not far froui the prosperous little town. Nothing can be more beautiful than this portion of the Comal springs and river, .nature having lavished some of bcr choicest gifts upon the surrounding scenery. Far behind, Indeed, In point of size and beauty, are tho San Pedro'sprlngs. On arriving at the park a large crowd of people had assembled, all seemingly In tent upon spending an enjoyable time. To this end the orchestra, under the oonductorshlp of Professor Carl Beck, added In no little degree and those who are fond of treading the mazy danoe were In no wise disap pointed. Another enjoyment which tbe stronger sex only could partake of was a bath In the crystal waters of the springs. As soon as this Idea was mooted nearly aU tbe irentlemen proceeded to the batb- Incr station. The war to this portion of the Comal necessitated the crossing of one or tne smaller springs, rue con venience afforded for this purpose wa three or four angular rock and n large trunk or a tree placed horizontally In the babbling stream. The Ltuirr repor ter, In attempting to cross, was soon submerged as far as his legs were con cerned, but after a scramble the other side was gained In safety. Mr. A. DrelM was not so fortunate, for he got a bath with his clothes on, railing completely In the stream upon his back. This contretemps, however, was withering, but gave a rest to the general merriment. The bathing place gained, It was not long before about a dozen of well known citizens were dis porting In the water like children, A. Orelsa taking the precaution to wring his wet clothes well before he entered the water without them. Hal Gosling showed hlmseir that besides potiesalng a sliver tonguo he was an adept In the art or swimming. After dressing the bathers returned to the ladles, where the reraalndcrof the afternoon was spent In dancing, the consumption or beer be ing startling. Toward evening tho crowd wended their way to tho depot, thoso who were fortunate enough In be ing able to procure conveyance doing so. The period of time occupied by tbe return Journey was spent In singing choruses and songs of varied descrip tion, from the Intensely sentimental to the broadly comlo, every ono evidently being In a state or enjoyment, and though tired, many expressed an opin ion they were sorry the day was over. Most of our prominent citizens attended the picnic, and besides these the burly form and good tempered race or Judge jieeior was io ue seen. , Another Baby. It Is rumored In municipal circles that Alderman Bolton has another baby to christen at tho Council meeting this afternoon. It Is reported to be a manu facturing baby, andsecin to be a healthy Infant, so far, at least. Base nail In Mother Hubbards. There will be n game of bate ball In Mother Hubbard dresses between tbe San Antonio nnd Belknap ltltlo nines at the Sunset bate ball park next haturdav afternoon at 5 o'clock for tbe benellt of the two companies. The same will af ford rare sport and will attract a tre- menuous crowu. The Cnusoot It, Dr. Cupples, who has given the sub ject Mine attention, declares that tbe oauso of tho fish dying In the San Pedro creek Is from the recent disinfecting of tho west side or tho olty. Lime placed In the gutters flow. In a liquid state, to tho creek and kills tho fish. Tho Doctor says the refuse from the gas works and Ice factory may also bo a secondary cause for the mortality. Successful Fishermen. A very pleasant fishing and hunting party left the olty Saturday for tho country round-about tho Second and Third missions. Tho party consisted of Sir. 11. It. Maurer. Mr. K. Hettberir. Dr. Ellis and others. They report having nau a pleasant time. Killed cons ueraoia game In birds, and caught Just exactly one poor little fish. Tbe party also had the great luck to kill one polecat. Necrologlcol. There were two deaths yesterday; the llrst being Henry Ansel), who died from pulmonary consumption, agcdC.

Slnco the establishment or Tobln's chile con carne factory, near San Pedro Springs, the San Pedro ditch has been polluted with the waste filth from that factory, which lloata In a fetid scum on tho formerly pure waters of that ditch, There are a irreat manr families on North Flores street, who are unable to get water works laid on the street, and who are compelled to use this ditch water lor unnxing anu ooouing pur poses, and It Is an outrage that the should be compelled to submit to tdfi lllthv practice of this factorv. The sani tary olllcers should look Into the matter, The Kind we Want. Mr. J. C. Cumberland called on the l.io i it this morning and asked to be placed on record as a satisfied English' man. The papers were In error when he was represented as a kicker; he does not endorse tbe resolution condemning Mr. KlngKbury. Mr. Cumberland sayst "I came to Texas with letters of Intro duction and was kindly received, ob tained employment, and have mado a Sooil living and saved $500 In 12 months, ly only regret Is that 1 did not como to lexas io vears sooner." Texas needs more such Englishmen as Mr. Cumberland, nnd would like to ex change some of the Dukes, Lords and hyphenated aristocracy, at tbe rate of 20 furl, for working men of Mr. Cumber land's calibre. Matrimonial. One of the Liuiit staff had the pleas ure last night to attend the wedding of Mr. George AV.
