Columbus, 0., Sept 25. The state mass
meeting of Cleveland and Ilendricks clubs
brought forty of the organizations to the city
and from 10,000 to 15,000 people. In the
ifternoon the ;:,.:etiii!£ was presided over by
Senator Tburman. who made the introduct
ory speech and remarks on introducing the
different persons. Senator Bayard, of Dela
ware, made the main speech on the growth
of the Democratic party since the war, on
the ideas of reform and constitutional gov
ernment which had been developed with its
progress. Other speeches were made by
Senators elect Henry B. Payne, Robert Mc-
Lean, of .Maryland, and ex-Senator Doo
little, of Wisconsin. Governor Heudricks
\v:is given an ovation but postponed his
address till evening. A conference was af
te.rward held by tin: officers of the Democratic
clubs throughout the state, at which a consti
tution and by-laws were adopted perfecting
consolidated organizations and arranging
for perpetuating the organization as a state
association, for which the officers will be
elected on St. Jackson's day, Jan. 8, 1885.
In the evening a grand street parade was
given In connection with an elaborate dis
play of fireworks. Speeches were made from
lour different platforms in Capitol square,
and addresses made by Sen
ators Bayard, Payne, Pendleton,
Doolittle, Gen. Bfansor, of Missouri; Con
gressman 1 . A. Collins, of Boston; John F.
Folium, (Jen. Darbin Ward, and others.
Qov. Hen dricks spoke at the east front and
was Introduced by Thurman. He said he
had just returned from his home and was
astounded at the interest displayed in pub
lic affairs, but when he remembered that
the state election was but three weeks and
national election but six weeks distant, the
Wonder ceased, even when he saw the
thousands gathered here. Every fourth
year the people at the ballot box decide
for it ogainit a change in the manage
ment of the government. In November
the people must ■gain decide
for a continuance or change
of the administration. Did they think the
same men must be continued from Olym
piad. It 18 now twenty- live years since
then was a change. Millions of dollars have
been collected and paid out in that time.
Last year there was collected ami paid out
an aggregate of 166,300,000. The story of
these transactions are written in a thousand
books, by a thousand clerks,, but they all arc
i: publican — no Democrat is allowed to read
t:.i- story. Much more moueyVis collected
than used. The government should have
nil that is needed for an economical admin
istration "i the affairs of the country, but
not one dollar more. When the citizens
have paid all the government
needs, they have dune: their whole
duty, and ought not to be asked to
do more. Senator Sherman said, in very
rough language last night that he (Hen
dricks) bad misrepresented the national
treasury. The remark reflected more on
Calkin-, the Republican candidate for gov
ernor of Indiana, than on himself. Calkins
had said, in a speech, that the Republicans
found the treasury empty and that now It
was full to overflowing. lie (Hendricks)
had quoted Calkins on the supposition that
be knew, being a member of congress. The
question is whether taxation is too high, and
ought to be reformed. Two years atro
Arthur said the taxation is too high aud
Dught to be lightened. It exceeded the
needs of the government by
1100,000,000. In ISS2 excess
w.i- 1145,000,000. Congress undertook
ii slight concession, but at the second session
afterward the secretary of the treasurer re
port d the reduction would not relieve the
people us it should, the excess being 185,
--000,000. This excess is increasing annually
so that the speaker did not suppose Calkins
was much mistaken. If the $8&,000,000 re
mained with people or In the channels of
trade would it not be a great benefit. In
the sentence of the Democratic platform it
t:i\ -. the taxation shall not exceed the needs
of the government. It shall be for public
purposes alone, and shall be the highest on
articles of luxury. By its honor the Dono
cratio party stands pledged to support these
principles. In discussing Blame's
foreign policy the speaker related

Speaker Carlisle msde the most elaborate

can party for corruption, loss of the navy,
public lands and other mismanagements in
l >Tcrnment affairs. He also ar
ar.iiirticd them for encouragement
of corporations' and monopolies and
for the wholesale pillage of funds uselessly
collected from the people, and denying that
hews a freetrader. He proceeded to advo
cate a tariff and revenue reform on the basis
of collective taxes exclusively for economic
administration of the government. lie said
thai the working men were beinc deluded by
the question of wages, when in fact they
were krpt poor by high prices. Labor troubles
were, heard of on all hands. The Re
publican party believed in Inch
taxes end great expenditure?, with the
fullest license to iUelf, while it
ece'tis to control the tastes and habits of the
people. The Democrats favored constitu
tional rights and personal liberty. They
were In favor of no discriminations by a pro
tective tariff, but for the free growth of ail
Industries. They did not believe in the the
ory of getting rich by ourselves and not
Iradinsr with others. The Democrats prom
bed to have a rv venue tariff which would re
duce taxes and benefit all alike. The
speaker devoted much of his time to an
swer Blame's letter of acceptance as to
the • tariff question and as to the
trrowth of wealth In 'this
country under Republican rule.
He spoke for over two hour* on this and the

in the body politic. He held that the peo
pies' servants had been the peoples' masters,
that by temporary fraud and bribery these
masters were perpetuating themselves in
power and enslaving the people with bur
dens and taxes and maladministration. He
held not only war taxes but war customs were !
j sttll in use. The civil a3 well as military
service of the country increased by the
j war, and yet there had been* no
reduction in the civil service,
as there had been in the array and over 100,

enormous expense, which is in ' part use
The speaking had been progressing at four
platforms, but the crowd was attracted
around Mr. Carlisle to hear his discussion of
the tariff and taxation question . nnd the
other meetings closed. The following let
ter was read :
Executive Mansion*, )
Albany, Sept. 23., 1884. j
My Dear Sir— l very much regret that the
pressure of c&cia? duties will prevent my
joining you at the meeting to be held in Col
umbus on the 25th. £ hope the meeting will
be a complete success and that it will be the
means of increasing the enthusiasm already,
aroused for the cause of good government.
1 believe that the voters of the country are
fully alive to the necessity of installing an
administration of public affairs which will be
truly their own, yet only because it
is the result of their choice, but
because its selected instrumentalities are
directly from the body of the people, and im
pressed with the people's thoughts and senti
ments. They are tired, I think, of a rule of
so long continued that it has bred and fos
tered a class standing between them and
their political action, and whose interests in
affairs end partisan zeal and the advance
ment of personal advantage. Let me remind
the people that if they seek to make their
public servants feel their direct responsibility
to them, and careful of their interests, their
object will not be accomplished by a blinded
adherence to the party which has grown
arrogant with long continued power. Let
me impress upon the people that the issue
involved in the pending canvass is the es
tablishment of a pure and honest adminis
tration of .their government. Let me
show them the way to this and
warn them against " any cunningly
designed effort to lead them
into other paths of irrelevant discussion.
With these considerations before them, and
with an earnest presentation of our claims
to the confidence of the people and of their
responsibility we need not fear the result of
their intelligent actions. Yours very truly,
Gkovek Cleveland.

the evening, and Gen. J. W. Dewer was

Syracuse, Sept. 25. — At 9:30 Mr. Blame
left Syracuse on the special train to attend
the fair of the Oswego Falls Agricultural so
ciety. A committee from the fair associa
tion came upon an early train to escort
Blame and party to the grounds. As usual
he was compelled to hold a reception. He
was escorted to the carriage and driven
around the grounds so all the people might
see him. When he got upon the stand he
was loudly cheereil, and there were shouts of
"Clear the stand: clear the stand." The
other occupants of the stand sat down, leav
ing Blame the only conspicuous figure. This
seemed to please the crowd greatly, for they
cheered " again and again. Mr. Merriam,
president of the fair association, introduced
Blame as one of America's most eminent
and most honored citizens. Blame waited
for the cheers to subside, and then said: There
is not a year of the history of the United
States in which, through ail its borders, the
agriculturist has rejoiced as he does this year.
There are no politics in agriculture. The
crops for a Democrat and for a Republican
are alike good, alike bad. The need of pro
duct is alike to a Democrat and to a Republi
can. We meet, therefore, at this agricultu
ral fair ground, if no where else, on the
broad plain of American citizenship, which
is a much higher title than Democrat or Re
publican. It is in that capacity I stand be
fore you this morning, ami it is in that ca
pacity I extend to you my congratulations
and my very hearty thanks for your generous
Short speeches were made by Chaunccy M.
Depew, Martin I. Townsend, Theo. M. Pome
roy, of Auburn, and Senator CoggsweO. All
in the party started on the return to Syra
cuse. A stop of a few
minutes at Buldwinsville where
Blame was introduced to almost 1,000 peo
ple, to whom be merely addressed cour
teous words of acknowledgement.
The party started for Auburu in the same
car la which they came from New York yes
terday. The depot and the ■pace along the
track were filled with people eager to see
Blame, and as the train moved out he ap
peared on the rear platform and ' was
AT Arm
The preparations at Auburn were quite
elaborate. As the train entered the depot
it exploded the torpedoes on the track and
there was a salute with cannon. A platform
had been erected outside the depot to which
Blaiue was escorted, bringing him face to
face with about 10,000 people. His appear
ance was the signal for a great outburst of
cheering. When it subsided John B. Fowler,
chairman of the QayugSj county Republican
committee announced that Hun. D. M. Os
born had been chosen to preside. Oabora
made a brief introductory speech. Blame
spoke a3 follows:
I thank you, citizens of Cayuga county,
for this reception. I confess that lam glad
to be here. lam glad to visit the home of
Win. 11. Seward. If there be among the
statesmen of the past one who more deserves
the admiration tad gratitude of the Ameri
can people than your great citizen,
I do not - know him. If there
be a higher statesmanship la the annals of
America than was shown by Bewara*, from
L 849 to the close of the civil war, I know not ;
where it is recorded, and We may all learn j
great lessons from recalling his history, and !
may well profit by his example. If we are
Republicans, we shall be quickened in our j
zeal, and if Democrats we
shall learn toleration. If simply ,
American citizens we shall be ;
warmed and stimulated in our patriotism. j
It is a humble representative of great prin- j
ciples which Seward vindicated throughout
his Illustrious life that lam before you to
day. But lam not here to make a political j
speech. lam here only to acknowledge with !
gratitude and with thankfulness the great
cordiality of your reception and to wish you
abundant happiness.
At Seneca Falls there was a large gather
ing. General Murray introduced Bbinc,
who as usual was received with cheers. He
I thank you gentlemen for this cordial
reception. I have almost exhausted
my power to give thanks to
the numerous assemblages which have
greeted me on my present journey :
through the state of New York, but I wish to
express to you my gratitude for the compli
ment you pay, and to say that those of yon
who have not traveled (If there be now any
Americans who have not) have little idea of
the country you live in. and you should
thank God daily almost, as the pharisee, that ■
yon arc not as other men are, for certainly
there is not within the limits of the Unite!
States a land that seems to smile with greater
plenty or with greater beauty than does this
western section of New York.

Blame left the train to visit the * Seneca
county asricnltcral fair. He was escorted
to the grounds by the Plumed Knights of
Waterloo and by a large crowd. The Agri

tweaty-uve cents for admission, but alter

people followed iv a great body and forced
their way in regardless of the efforts of the
gate keepers. Many ladies were in the as
semblage. Blame's presence aroused great,
enthusiasm. When called on for a speech
Blame stood up in his carriage, a"d said,
jocosely, he did not feel qualified to make a
suitable speech at an agricultural fair, but
he had the good fortune to travel with a prac
tical farmer, M. J. Townsend, whom he
would introduce instead. Townsend having
spoken, the Plumed Knights escorted Blame
back to the train. There were repeated calls
for Blame before he left the grounds, but he
responded only by bowing.
. At 3:10 the train arrived at Geneva,
where a salute was fired as the train came to
the station, and in a few minutes several
thousand people gathered in the rear of the
train, among them an enthusiastic body of
plumed knights. Blame was introduced by
a namesake, M. P. Blame, of Geneva, and
the people cheered enthusiastically. When
order was restored Blame briefly thanked the
people for the kind reception and then said:
"I could not, in justice to my feelings,
pass through your beautiful city without pay
ing a tribute of respect to the late eminent
citizen whom you have lost. It was my
good fortune to know John J. Folger person
ally and officially, to know him well, and
feel bound to bear testimony that
he was one among the public
men of us who shortened his life by unsel
fish devotion to public duty. . lam sure in
bearing this testimony I am sustained by
you no knew him so well, and for so many
years enjoyed his friendship."
Senator Lapham joined the party at
It was not intended the train should 6top

and Blame had to show himself. He was
loudly cheered. He merely bowed his
At Clifton the train stopped a few minutes
and again Mr, Blaiue had* to appear on the
rear platform, and spoke a few words, and
was loudly cheered. A boquet was banded
up bearing the inscription, "From the ladies
of the Sanitarium at Clifton springs, with
the best wishes and earnest hope that be may
be the next president of the United States."
At Canandaigua there was a very large and
enthusiastic crowd, who cheered Blame vo
ciferously when he appeared on the platform.
Senator Laphain called the people to order,
and said as the train was late he had only
time to introduce without comment the man
who would be the next president. Blame
"I am greatly obliged to my old friend
Judge Lapham for his kind words. lam
still more obliged to this vast assemblage for
this compliment they pay me as I am pass
ing through the beautiful town ( which is
famed far beyond its borders, and which is
looked -upon as one of the chief jewels in
this expanse of country which western New
York presents. No who journeys through your
beautiful country as I have journeyed to-day
can fail to be impressed with the splendid
results worked out by the hands of an in
telligent people, enjoying the blessings of a
free government, and if there be anywhere
on the face of God's earth a people more
blessed in basket and store than you are, I
know not where to locate them. To be re
ceived so kindly by a people so blessed is
one of the chief compliments of mv life, and
I now bid you a cordial and grateful fare
Rochester, Sept. 25. — is impossible to
do justice by description to the grand ova
tion which Blame received at Rochester. Its
magnitude and enthusiasm seemed to
astonish oven the gentlemen who had taken
part in the preparations for it. Uniformed
clubs, some mounted, but most of them on
foot, extended in a line for about three
quarters of a mile from the depot along the
way to the stud erected on the court house
steps. The clubs saluted Blame as be passed
alonir and he returned the salutations. The
streets were filled with a dense mass of men
and women, and every door and window in
the houses along the route wag occu
pied. The old Osborne house, a five
story building, formerly the leading hotel of
Rochester, but now transformed into a busi
ness building was crowded with people look
ing out upon the procession and saluting
as it passed, so to was the famous Powers
block, and SO was every building along the
the route. It was fortunate that arrange
ments had bceu made for Blame and his
friends to reach the stand via the rear of the
court house, for it would have been almost
impossible to make a passage way through
the douse crowd in front. As soon as Blame
had got upon the stand the colored jubilee
singers of the State university, Tennessee,
sang with great effect one of their stirring
songs, which was loudly applauded. Mr.
lJurritt, chairman of the Monroe county cen
tral committee, introduced Blame, who was
received with tremendous cheering. When
order was restored, Mala* speaking slowly
and impressively, that his voice reached
nearly every member of the great audience,
"lam pure that no desire to offer a personal
compliment to any living man con Id have
brought this vast audience together and I
have not the vanity to accept it as offered to
myself individually. It is rather the ex
pression by this great assemblage of the peo
ple of western New York, of their confidence
in those principles which have brought pros
perity to our country, and have builded your
own beautiful city as one of the examples
and illustrations of that prosperity. The
Republican party embodies in it- creed four
distinct and important doctrines. First —
Peace with the whole world. Second — Com
mercial expansion in evry practicle direction;
Third — Eucouragemcnt of every form of
American industry. Fourth — Protection to
every citizen, native or naturalized, at home
and abroad. Under these policies the Re
publican party strives to conduct the jrovern
tuent. Under these principles the Republi
can party snbmiU itself to the judgment of
the American people. On these principles
we conquer or on these we are conquered.
I thank you. gentlemen, I thank you from
the bottom of my heart for whatever in this
splendid . ovation is personal to my
self, but I ask your attention with especial
emphasis to the importance of these positions
to which I have briefly adverted. To the
latest hour of my life I never can forget this
brilliant scene, nor can I mistake the Title
Buffalo, Sept. 25. — At Batavia 6ocb a
crowd gathered that a short stop was made.
A delegation from Lockport headed by W.
O. Cobb, editor of the Lockport Journal, j
joined the party. A company with torches !
was at the station with a thousand or more. j
Blame was greeted in the car by a number i
of German and Irish citizens, who shook bis ■
hand warmly and welcomed him. Win. C. i
C. Watson introduced Blaise from the plat
form. Blame said:
I am profoundly obliged by your generous
reception. I have reached almost the west- ]
crn end of your state and from its ■
grand metropolis to this point I have
received unmeasured kindness, bat it would
be sheer vanity if I were to attribute these
popular demonstrations to any mere per
sonal motive. I know better. I know these
lavish compliments are intended not for me
personally bui as a mark of confidence in the
great and for twenty-four years triumphant
party which I have been chosen to represent.
The future of that great party is in the band*
of the people. In the hands of the people
of New York. I trust that it Is in safe hands.
I id you good night. At Batavia a delega
tion of twenty gentlemen from Buffalo came
on board the train.
When the party arrived in the Buffalo depot
at S o'clock there was already a great crowd.
! Blaise, escorted by Chairman Warren and a
! local committee, entered a carriage and
j passed up between rows of Plumed Knights
j and other political clubs carrying . torches,
| and for the ensuing three hoars he was
driven through the principal streets of the
city and received an ovation which it would
take colums to describe. The people, men,
women and children, were bo densely packed
together in the streets that the police
had all they could do to make
a way for the carriages. The wildest enthu
siasm prevailed. At a few points along the
route there were isolated cheers for Cleve
land, and shouts of "Cleveland's the man,''
but nearly all these demonstrations were
made by boys, and everywhere ,the greatest
good humor prevailed. At a few minutes
past 11 the procession past the Tifft house,
and Blaiue and his party went in by the rear
entrance, the crowd in front being too great.
Almost immediately, Blame bad to show
himself on the balcony and there
for the next hour he
stood reviewing the procession and bowing
his acknowledgments. Enthusiastic demon
strations were made by the people in the
street. Tnere were more than 10,000 men
in line, and the local estimate -is that at
least 70,000 people were on the streets.
The display of fireworks was very. fine. It
was very near midnight when the end of
the procession passed the hotel and Blame
stepped into the hotel from the balcony.
But he had hardly got into his room when
the Buffalo glee club came and gave him
a serenade.

A etc York for Cleveland, \ . ' .
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
New York, Sept. 25. — The Democratic
national committee are becoming more con
fident than ever of Grover Cleveland's elec
tion. They are not at all alarmed by any
effect which may be produced by Mr. Blame's
tour through this state and Ohio. They held
a conference to-day with Congressman Sam
uel J. Randall " and George
A. Post, of Pennsylvania and ' Darnel
Manning, chairman of the New York state
committee. Mr. Post, who is secretary of
the congressional committee, said that the
growth of sentiment for Cleveland was con
stant. Men who had in former years come
to New York to get consolation had come
this year to bring good news. Mr. Post was
satisfied that the Democrats would elect a
majority of the next house of repre
sentatives and was confident of
the election of Cleveland and Hendricks.
Congressman Randall talked confidently of
Democratic success, and Mr. Manning had
no doubt of Cleveland's victory in this state.
He believed that Blame's tour through the
state would increase rather than diminish
the enthusiasm for Cleveland, which had
been for some time decidedly marked among
the Democrats.
The Republicans are complaining be
cause the Democratic state com
mittee are circulating documents
containing the Mulligan letters in cities and
villages on Mr. Blame's route. Win. L.
Smith, chairman of the state executive com
mittee, said to-day: "We are circulating the
Mulligan letters. Mr. Blame, himself, in
an interview published in the Kennebcc
Journal the day after the appearance of the
last batch of letters, \ requested that every
voter should read them. 1 fail to see why
Mr. Blame's organ should be so outraged at
our doing just what Mr. Blame said that he
would done."

I Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Cincinnati, Sept 25.— The Enquirer is
having a careful canvass made of the state
of Indiana by townships, the work being
done through township trustees. In past
campaigns the Enquirer has instituted sim
ilar canvasses, and the predictions based
upon them have been wonderfully accurate,
the widest variance from subsequent official
returns being 571 in the election
of 1880. Returns have been received
from BGO out of the 1,026 town
ships in the state, which show a net Demo
cratic gain over 1880 of 10,320, which is
equal to 13.383 for the whole state. The
total Republican gains in the 800 townships
are 2,647, leaving a net Democratic gain
over the Republicans of 7,665. The total
Republican gains in the state, estimated
from the townships heard from, are 3,078,
which gives a total net gain of the Democrats
over the Republicans in the state of
10,200. The following is the total
vote of the state, as these
reports would show It, counting the Butler
and Prohibition vote together. Total Demo
cratic vote, 236,714; total Republican vote,
235,242; Democratic majority, 1,472; total
Butler and Prohibition vote, 17,043; total
vote of the state, 489,611; increase of vote
over 1880, 18,933. But, as the reports do
not include fully the cities of Indianapolis,
Fort Wayne, Lafayette, Terre Haute, New
Albany and Evansville, it is absolutely safe
to assume that 5,000 Germans who in
1880 voted for Garficld will now vote for the
Democratic state ticket, this being no longer
an October state. It is highly probable that
many who vole the Democratic state ticket
or the Prohibition state ticket will vote for
Blame. Of the reported 8,588 Prohibition
votes that will be cast for their state ticket,
2,995 of them are reported for Blame. If,
then, the 5,003 German votes are added to
the 1,472 the Democratic majority makes a
total of 0,472; but from that should be de
ducted the 8,864 Prohibitionists who will
vote for Blalne, leaving the majorities as
follows: Democratic majority on state
ticket 0,472; Democratic national ticket

The Cameron- Blaine I)<-aT.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Wjumuumm, Sept 2".— ln connection
with the interview between Don Cameron
and Blame, in Philadelphia, it is known here
that it was pre-arranged. Up to tha other day
the Cameron* he'd severely aloof from the
canvass, and their henchmen in Pennsyl
vania did the same thing. The Conference
between Blame and Cameron was entirely
private. and s-a* a long one. As
a matter of course . every - one
knows that nothing was talked
bat business. The terms of the alliance nay
easily be conjectured. Don Cameron wants
to come back to the senate. He cannot af
ford to openly antagonize Blame or to have
Blame's friends fighting him. The bargain
undoubtedly is that be (Cameron) is to use
I all his energy to help the electoral ticket and
! Blame's influence ii to be cast for His
(Cameron's) re-election to the senate. It is
also probable that Blame has agreed that If
he goes to Pennsylvania to find a cabinet
minister he will consult Mr. Cameron as to
bis choice and not appoint anyone who is an
enemy to the Cameron clan. After the pain
ful experience the stalwarts have had with
Gar&riJ and Blame in ISSO the , Camerons
are not likely to make a second compact
without having it very distinctly expressed
In writing. "A burnt child dreads the fire."
The New York Herald: "Cameron has
been Blame's foe. His Influence in the
Pennsylvania delegation defeated Blame to'
the nomination at Cincinnati in 1898. What
Blaise promises him in the way of plunder,
ambition usd revenge in return for bis por
litical activity at this crisis in the presiden
tial canvas* cannot long be kept secret. That
Blame deems bis situation to be 'critical' ap
pears in the more. He appeals to Cameron
for money, Lnfioence and manipulation to

New York, Sept. 25.— The World: "Any
Idiot knows that Blame and his followers
have one hope that of dragging into the can
vass the false issue of free trade to hide the
issue of free coruption. Yet we find some
Democrats aiding them to accomplish this
object. It may be that euch Democrats
want Gov. Cleveland elected, but is not their
cause calculated to excite the suspicion that
they desire the success, as they " certainly do

New York, Sept. 25.— The Star is author
ity for the statement that ex-Gov. Seymour
has consented to go to Ohio and speak for

•Iwltj" Grfham Appointed Secretary^ £v;
Washington, ' Sept. 25. — Judge W. Q.
Gresham, postmaster general, received a tele
gram from the president after 11 o'clock last
night, informing him of his appointment to
the secretaryship of the treasury. He was
immediately qualified aud sent the president
his resignation as postmaster general. At
10 o'clock this morning Gresham went to
the treasury with Secretary Chandler. His
designation from the president was given
him by O. L. Prudent, assistant secretary to
the president; his commission by third as
sistant secretary of state, A. A. Ades. Two
assistant secretaries of the treasury, Fren eh
and Coon, were present and tendered their
congratulations. The new secretary will
leave here this evening to consult with the
president Under the law the first assistant
postmaster, General Hatton, becomes acting
postmaster general for ten days. ,'"•/'
The president to day designated Assistant
Secretary Coou to act secretary of the treas
ury during the absence or sickness at any
time of Secretary GrLsham. Assistant Sec
retary French has always heretofore acted in
this capacity. Mr. Coon is also authorized
by the secretary to sign in his stead all war
rants for payment into the public treasury,
and all warreuts for disbursement from the
public treasury. All the bureau and division
officers of the department were called on by '
the new secretary about noon, and were pre- 1
rented by Mr. Coon. Mr. Neal, solicitor of 1
the trcasury.bas been called to Boston by the
serious illness of bis wife.
The Star says Judze Gresham has known
that he might be called upon to take the
place In a certain contingency. The con- '
tingency was the inability to
obtain a decisive answer from a gentleman
whom the president bad in view for the
treasury portfolio. Ju'!l-.- Gresham accepted
the position as an accommodation to the
president and his intimate friends say it is
only a temporary appointment. The dura
tion of the appointment Is commonly fixed
at about the Ist of October, when It is be
lieved Gresham will resign and perhaps ac
cept the judgeship of the Illinois circuit. It's I
believed that either McColloch "or Bontwell
wiil tike the secretaryship upon Judge
Gresham's retirement, Artine Postmaster
General Hatton will most likely be placed at
the bead of the postofSce department pcrma

of the Third Grafton county fair was the
presence of Gen. Butler. He was accom
panied by Moody Merrill, a large stock
holder In the association, who, in the ab
sence of the president, introduced Butler to
the large gathering. Butler apologized for
his hoarseness, and said he supposed his
hearers were of mixed politics, very much
so, therefore his remarks would be some
what mixed, hitting all alike. The Demo
crats want to get into power, where they can
be tempted, but they would
do no better than the Republicans.
All we desire if for the producers
to enjoy the fruits of their labors. If the
government will give the laboring man a
lair chance he would be satisfied. He did
not leave the Chicago convention because
he was not nominated, for his name w«s uot

not wish to be bound. The Democratic free

Jackson had been dead these forty years, and

"how would it do to vote for St. John?"]
The General replied: "If inclined to drink
too much whisky, you had better do it.
If you do not think for yourself it means
revolution, and revolution means bullet."
Gen. Butler was heartily cheered at the close
of his speech.
