HILL IN HOOSIERDOM. The Governor of the Empire State Camps on Blame's Trail. Indianians Gather in Thou sands Along* His Route to Do Him Honor. A Heavy Fall of Democratic Dew Fails to Dampen Their Ardor. Backbiter Ing-ails Assails the Methods of Smooth Sena tor Quay. MiTcnELL. Ind., Oct. 12.— This little town, with a population of 1.300, situated !n the southern part of Lawrence coun ty, at the intersection of the Ohio & I Mississippi, Louisville. New Albany j & Chicago railways was the point se lected by the Democratic state com- i Imittee for Gov. David B. Hill, of New York, to inaugurate his brief canvassof Indiana. Lawrence county is thickly j populated and Mitchell has long been j locally famous for its large and enthus iastic Democratic gatherings. Fair weather and dry roads, however, are necessary contingencies here for one of these outpourings of 20.000 people, ! which have characterized the village. The elements were un propitious for : such a large gathering to-day, a heavy rainfall having prevailed throughout . southern Indiana for twenty-four hours. i I rendering the roads disagreeable for travel, but in spite of these drawbacks I hundreds of farmers began to arrive | .arly in the day and the trains came i loaded with rural passengers, until at I noon time a crowd of near 5,000 filled ! the muddy village streets. About this i lime it ceased raining for a few hours i and between 2.000 and 3.000 people gath ered it the station to welcome New York's distinguished governor and Gov. Gray, of Indiana, were escorted through I :he age with music, and a procession j of several hundred to a grove adjacent i liere a pavilion had been erected. The i :_s were ■ripping with moisture and I c atmosphere was chilly, but a large j uidience cheered the governors as they ; peared. Three large floats, hand- ; comely decorated, were crowded with tie girls and young ladies, who sang \ _nd cheered while the party was enter ; the grounds. Mason J. Xibiack. son Judge N'iblack, of the supreme court , if Indiana, presided, and at once intro- I ced Gov. Hill. As the governor | •pped forward faultlessly attired, and i ring his overcoat. THE CROWD ROSE _____ (__.____.) m repeatedly. withstanding the ! avy atmosphere, he spoke with great •am ess. is follows: Fellow Citizens— l am rejoiced at this : •unity of meeting the people of diaua. Your state seems to be alive i .vith enthusiasm and true Democracy, ■ )n this unpleasant day you will not ex- . ct me to detain you with any lengthy narks. 1 come to add my testimony n favor of the wisdom and the benefit lich we have received from a Dem- I ratic administration of national •flairs. In the first place, I want to call your attention to the difference between this campaign uid some or the presidential campaigns if the last twenty years. To-day, all >ver this land, our people are engaged in the discussion of economic and indus trial questions. Heretofore these ques tions have been neglected. Four years . ago we were engaged in considering jther questions growing out of sectional ; animosities between the various sec lions of our country, and to-day. my friends, we are permitted to discuss these economic and industrial questions because, under the wise and statesman like administration of (.rover Cleve land, the country has been ENTIRELY COMPLETELY PACIFIED, i Applause.! 1 always desired to take ; •if my hat to the Democracy of Indiana, but you will permit me this afternoon I to keep it on. [Applause and cries of j •Keep it on.**; Therefore, the first point that 1 make in favor of the Demo cratic party in this election is that the aiportunity for the discussion of these questions that concern every citizen at his home is due to three and a half years of national Democratic adminis tration. Applause My friends, the Democratic party -proposes -a i revision of the tariff. It does ; not propose the destruction of the j tariff: but it proposes simply a modifi- ! cation of it. Tariff revision is not tar- : iff destruction. We believe that the , time has come when the excessive reve nues of the government should be di minished. We believe that the best and truest interests of our country will be subserved by a reduction of the present high rate of taxation. We have suffered long enough under war taxation, and we think the time has come, the time of peace, when AVAR TAXATION SHOULD CEASE. Need 1 argue before an intelligent audience like this that it is best for this couutry that there should not be an i overflowing treasury? You know what a surplus, an immense sutpius in the federal treasury means. It means op portunity for jobs of every* character. It means useless and unnecessary ex penditures of public moneys. And. it is best for our country that there should not be a_ over flowing treasury. The Democratic party, my friends, has given the country an issue in this cam paign. It is an issue which has at tracted world-wide attention. We are in favor of a revision of the tariff principally upon two points: First, we think that raw ma terial, whenever it is possible so to do. should be admitted free of duty: we believe in the second place. that the taxes_upon the necessaries of life should De made as light as possible. Upon these two points we may con fidently appeal to the people in this campaign, I don't propose to argue to you at any length in favor of the pro priety of what is known of the Mills bill. You. by this time in the campaign, are familiar with the details of that measure. lam not here to say that it is perfect in all its details: but. in the main, it is* a measure reasonably free from objection. it is a measure intended to subserve the best interests of the country. It is a measure in the INTERESTS OF THE -PAYEE.?, the consumers, the fanners, the me chanics and the laboring men of the country. My friends, when this ques tion was first presented to congress last December— and you wiil recollect it was presented to congress in a message by the president of the United States, (.rover Cleveland— you will recollect what we told the country in reference to the necessity of some relief to the people. Have you forgotten how that message was received by our opponents in and out of congress? In the first . place they said there was no surplus, in the second place they said if there was a surplus it did not matter. They said, "it Is better, is it not, that we should have a surplus than a deficiency.'' They said "it is unwise to disturb the business in terests of the country by tinkering with the tariff:"' and they neglected no op portunity to discourage the presenta tion of this question to the people of the United States. Nevertheless; that message, which startled the country solely because of its boldness, its hon est}*, its candor, was acted upon by our Democratic representatives in the lower house of congress. They framed a bill known as the Mills bill, 'designed to re lieve the country from unnecessary tax ation. We believe that is the Demo cratic creed, that unnecessary taxation ought no longer to exist. The bill was opposed at every step, but our gallant Democratic members of congress PERSISTED IN THE FIGHT. They said to their opponents, "Pro pose a better measure: give us a letter substitute: do something for the relief of an overburdened and tax-ridden peo ple." But our appeal to _____ was made in vain— they offered no substi tute: they presented no other bill; they discussed the question week after week and month after mouth, raising the same cry that the question ought not to j be considered at all. Finally, when the I vote came, they contented themselves ! with offering a few amendments: then, I when these were voted down, they simply voted against the measure. It then went to the sen ate of our country— the Republi- i can senate. They hesitated in re- . gard to it; discussion of it was post- I poned, and finally, my friends, in the month of October, on the eve of this i presidential election, when the country has been considering this matter for many ions months, when they saw that a demand tor tariff reform was sweep ing over the country: at this eleventh hour, what do they do? They then pro pose a measure for the reduction of the tariff and a reduction of taxation. The majority of the finance committee of the senate made a report to which 1 desire : to call your attention from the admis- i sions made in it. By that report they ; say that they find that the revenues of I the government are excessive. It seems i to me WE HEARD SOMETHING I.IKE THAT in President Cleveland's message last December. [Laughter.] They said that the demand for a reduction of the tariff seems to be imperative. We have heard that before. [Continued laughter.] i They said that there was a necessity for ; a revision, so that the inequalities of the tariff should no longer be perpetu- : ated. Then they presented their bill. I j am not here to discuss the wisdom of | the details of that bill, but I am here to I say, in the light of these claims, in the j light of these facts, in the light of the attitude of the Republicans in congress I and out of congress, that the report of tlie majority of the senate committee i and the presentation of any bill what ever by them is a confession of judg- i ment in favor of all the positions taken by President Cleveland and the Demo cratic party in December last. [Ap- j plause.] Now they concede the pro- < priety of the discussion of this ques- j tion. They now propose to tinker with the tariff themselves: they now propose ! to disturb what they say is the business interests of this country by taking up this question themselves. * [Applause.] My friends, IT I? TOO LATE. The cry for tariff reform which has been spreading over this country, lias received such an impetus that it wiil again place Mr. Cleveland in tbe presi dential chair, [Prolonged cheers.] 1 said I did not propose to discuss the de tails of the Mills bill, and 1 do not. There are some things, however, you i will permit me to allude to. What i earthly objection can there be upon the part of the farmers, the workingmen : and the laboringmen of this great State of Indiana to placing salt on the free list? What injury can this be to your | interests? Salt is one of the neces saries of life: used by every family: and when the Democratic party pro poses to place this upon the free list they are acting in your interest and not to subserve any selfish interests of their own. In plain words, my friends, the Democratic party in this campaign is fighting the selfishness of the country in behalf of the masses of the people. Cheers.] Why, we have heard this same cry made before, that if the tariff was changed at ail the business inter ests of the country would be injured. Let me give you an illustration. About twelve or thirteen years ago — I forget the precise date— there was a demand upon the part of the people that hides should be placed upon the free list. Some of the tanners of the country ob jected: others doubted the propriety of it. It was claimed that it would se riously affect the people of this country to have raw hides put upon the free list; but congress, in ONE OF its LUCID INTERVALS, was finally persuaded to place this article upon the free list. The result lias been that to-day there is not a tan ner anywhere engaged in business in the land but that is glad that it was done, and he would not have the duty restored if it were possible to do so. The result has been your tanning interests have been increased; they have pros pered as never before : and we are ex porting more leather to-day than ever before in the history of this country. What is true in reference to this article, is true as we think in reference to others. The same arguments. my friends, which were urged then against a reduction of tariff taxation are urged now, and the same arguments which they urge now can be urged in five years from now, in ten years from now. and in fifteen years from now. They were unsound then, they are unsound now. Now, my friends, I came to the state of Indiana in order that I might see the Democracy of this state face to face. We are interested with you in this great national cam paign. 1 came to bring you good words from the Empire state. 1 come to tell you that we propose to give the VOTE OF THE EMPIRE STATE to Cleveland and Thurman in Novem ber. [Great cheering.] There will be no mistake about that this time, and by a majority that will not be counted by a few thousand. [Applause.] Our people are aroused to the questions of the hour. We agree with you that something ought to be done to subserve the inter ests of the people. Our national con gress has legislated in the interest of classes and in the interests of monopo lies long _______ We propose now to do something for the interests of the people. That, my friends, is the issue, and that is all there is of it. You may confuse it by misstatements. 1 no tice that the distinguished gentle man from Maine is now in this state telling the people that all your prosperity is due to a high protec tive tariff. You would have no crop, but for the tariff. I suppose. [Laughter.] Your population would not have in creased but for the tariff; your lauds would not have been cleared, your farms would not have been cultivated, except for the tariff. My friends, this is nothing more nor less than clap-trap, and it will not deceive the intelligent people of this state. [Several voices, ••Never!*'] It has operated well with the Republican party in the past; but the people, now that these old sectional questions have been disposed of, are giving their attention to this new issue; and upon this new issue, upon which the Democratic party is clearly right, we propose to CONQUER IN Tins ELECTION (cries of "we will do it, and right yon SAINT PAUL, MIX.?. SATURDAY MOI__TI_TG. OCTOBER 13, ISBB.— TWELVE PAGES. are.'*) A few words my friends and I am done. This state is well known, was the home of that distinguished statesman. Thomas A. Hendricks, (pro longed cheers.) I am pleased to speak in the state that was his home. You know what his Democracy was, how true and how abiding, how disin terested, how patriotic. I believe it is a sample of the Democracy ot the whole state of Indiana. We were delighted to honor him in the state of New York. Be was a tower of strength to us in the last campaign, and we all regret his death. My friends, I came to you to day to ask you to do your duty, the same as though he was your leader in this state to-day. You have another leader here, the distinguished present governor of your own state. [Applause.] Al though not a candidate for public office now, he is gallantv leading the Democ racy of this state, speaking day and night everywhere; and the Democracy •f the state of New York is proud of him. as you are also. Again, my friends, permit me to thank you for this kind and flattering reception. 1 take this not as a personal compliment to myself, but to the great cause of Democracy which we all have at heart. [Loud and continued cheering.] Senator Kaines was hen introduced, and spoke for twenty minutes on the tariff issue. He was followed by Gov. Gray, who received an ovation from the Hoosiers. At 3 o'clock the party left Mitchell, en route | to Indianapolis. The first stop was at i Seymour, the junction of the Jefferson ville, Madison a* Indianapolis road. Fully a thousand people greeted the party in a drizzling rain. Gov. Hill. Gov. Gray and Senator Kaines were es corted to "the Junction hotel, where from the balcony Gov. Hill briefly spoke as follows: "Fellow Citizens: 1 thank you for this cordial greeting. Four years ago your opponents predicted that the coun try would be ruined by the advent of the Democratic party to power. They predicted that we would ASSUME THE CONFEDERATE DEBT [laughter]; that we would repudiate the national debt: that the colored peo ple would be restored to slavery: that the industries of the country would In paralyzed and disasters of every kind would overtake this land. To-day we can say that all these predictions of our adversaries have come to naught. [Here Gov. Hill was interrupted by the noise of an engine in the neighborhood. After repeated cries to "Go ahead," he pro ceeded as follows]: That steam engine, my friends, reminds me of one of Chauncey Depew's stories. Upon the unveiling of the Bartholdi statue in the port of New York Mr. Depew was the orator of the day. The moment the statue was unveiled Mr. Depew was introduced. and then all I the steamboats began to whistle, j md he said to his audience j that it was the first time he had ever been called upon to address a crowd of I tpplauding steamboats. [Great laugh- ! ter.] Ido not desire to compete with j the steam engine, because 1 am very sure that these railroad monopolies al ways get the best of us. [Laughter.] ' We have now had three and a half i ■ears of a wise, statesmanlike adminis- I tration of public affairs. In the last thirty or forty years we have not had a •■ .etter administration than tnat which i _as been given us by Grover Cleveland, I mr president. [Enthusiastic cheering.] , The question winch is now presented is whether there shall be a change of ad ministration. 1 think that the business interests of the country' are satisfied with the present administration. The country is reasonably prosperous. Oil! INDUSTRIES ARE FLOURISHING. Our people, in the main, are receiv ing good wages and everywhere thete is contentment. No one, no matter how bitter a partisan he may be. doubts the sincerity of our president. He may have made mistakes, but 1 do not and cannot recall what they are. He has submitted to the people suggestions in regard to the tariff. What he proposes is for the best interests of the consumers of this land. The Democratic party reposes to relieve the people from the urden of unnecessary taxation. That, my . friends, is the issue of the hour. We believe that under the pres ent system— rather under the present high tariff— we are raising an unneces sary amount of revenue in this country. We believe that the place for the sur plus taxes is in the pockets of the peo ple, and not in the federal treasury. We believe a reduction should be made. and we believe it can be accomplished without injuring any industry, and without injuring the wages of a single laboring man. We want a system so adjusted that the people may have the BENEFITS OF MODERATE TAXATION. lam satisfied that the people of In diana appreciate the importance of this campaign and propose to do your duty. It is impossible in this weather to speak at any length. I thank you for the compliment which you pay me and the friends who accompany me by coming out to hear what little we have to say on this inclement afternoon. [Applause.] Three hearty cheers were given and then Hon. S. Raines was introduced. He made a short but eloquent address, paying attention to the pension ques tion. Following Senator Raines Gov. Gray spoke for twenty minutes, elicit ing enthusiastic applause. At 6 o'clock the party re-embarked for Indianapolis. Columbus was reached at 6:30. Between 2,000 and 3,000 people were at the depot aad called loudly tor Gov. Hill, who ap peared and said: Fellow citizens, I thank you for this kind and flattering reception. Ido not propose in this inclement evening to speak to you upon the issues of the day. 1 assure you. however, that New York proposes to foliow the people of Indiana in this campaign, and cast its electoral vote for Cleveland and Thurman. [Pro longed cheers.] The crowd then called for Gov. Gray, who, picking up the thread cf Gov. Hill's* utterances, said : "And I want to say, my fellow citizens, that Indiana intends to give a larger majority tor Cleveland and Thurman than New York." [Great cheering.] At Edingburg, the next town, a crowd of 500 with torches called for Gov. Hill, and cheered frantically as the train moved away as the governor stepped out. At Franklin the crowd was from 300 to 500. HURRAH FOR HILL. The Burden of the Song of Indi ana's Democracy. iNDiANAroLis. Ind.. Oct. 12.— Gov. Hill and his party arrived in Indianap olis at 8:15 to-night. A drizzling rain was falling. A crowd of 2.000 or more, including the Flambeau club and rep resentations from several other local clubs, met the party at the union de pot. As Gov. Hill alighted he was greeted with prolonged cheers and cries of "Hurrah for Hill!" The Hon. Charles Jewett, chairman of the state Democratic committee, County Chairman Taggart and other prominent local Democrats were pres ent to welcome the distinguished guest and his friends. The party took" car riages awaiting and were escorted direct to Tomilnson's hall, where the mass meeting was in progress. The big audi torium had been handsomely decorated for the occasion, and. notwithstanding the inclement weather, the house was well filled with an > intelligent audience of 4.000 or more. On the stage sat many of the prominent Democrats of the state and city. As Gov. Hill appeared, es -1 outiuued ou Filth A'a-je. CAN'T COME The Question of Adjournment i Is Uppermost in Con gressmen's Minds. A Discussion of the Nicaragua Canal Project in the House. Senators Continue to Devote Their Time to Revamp ing 1 Tariff History. President Cleveland Corrects ; Errors in Legislation by His Prerogative. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. 12.— The question I of the adjournment of congress is still ! uppermost in most minds here, but no body seems to have any definite -infor- : mation on the subject, and while mem bers of both houses say they are willing to adjourn, nobody seems ready or in clined to take the initiative. There is about as much uncertainty about the question as there has been at any time in the past. There are almost as many reports as there are differences of opin- j ion on the subject. Mr. Talbot, the ; clerk of the ways and means committee is at work on an analysis of the senate . tariff bill, and similar work is being done by experts at the treasury depart ment and elsewhere. Members who are going to discuss the bill on the stump are making a study and all the information possible is being assembled. As the work progresses the Democratic authorities on the question ex press satisfaction at the result | and become more determinded that the bill shall be fully explained and criticised before election. They are determined that an adjourn ment shall not be had until a thorough exposition of the bill has been made. As long as congress remains in session and this bill is held up as the cause of the delay public attention will be turned upon it and all that is said may be listened to. But if an adjournment should occur they fear the bill, with • all the defects they, insist are in it. j would be in danger of dropping out of public notice. For this reason the many Democrats in the house are op posed to an adjournment until the ex piration of ten days or two weeks yet, and it is quite likely that their advice will be respected. It is generally un derstood in the house tbat the senate is ready to accept an adjournment propo sition whenever it comes to them. Not withstanding these conflicting views a Republican sensator is authority for the statement that an adjournment resolution will be introduced Monday, and that congress will adjourn next Wednesday. AN ISTHMAN DITCH. I The I_ower House Discusses the. j Nicaragua Canal Project. Washington, Oct. __. — The house * devoted almost the entire day with the j discussion of the Nicaragua canal bill '. without obtaining action upon it. Sev j eral leaves of absence were granted. i The conference report on the Fourth of ! July claims bill was agreed to. The ' report of the Stahlnecker investi [ gating committee, exonerating Mr. 1 Stahlnecker from the charges of ; misconduct in connection with j the new library building, was adopted. Tne senate bill for the incor ; poration of the Maritime Canal com- I pany, of Nicaragua, was discussed at 1 length. Mr. Fuller, of lowa, claimed ! that the bill was loosely drawn, 1 and offered an amendment, pro viding that no change in the | by-laws shall be made except by a ma jority vote of the stockholders at a special meeting. Mr. Stockdale. of ! Mississippi, thought the interests of the j United States were not sufficiently pro | tected in the bill. On the amendment 1 of Mr. Fuller the vote stood 23 to 8. and the point of no quorum was raised,* whereupon the committee rose. During ! the discussion business was suspended long enough for the house to agree to a ■ a conference report on the bill to retire Gen. Alfred Pieasanton with the rank of major. Several minor bills were j passed. Mr. Oates, of Alabama, asked ' permission to print in the Record some ! remarks on the tariff, but as he said that . j they were in the form of an essay by the chief justice of the supreme court of Ms state, objection was made. After some time spent in filibustering the house at 4 p. m. adjourned until Monday. TIRED OP TALKING TARIFF. Many of the Senators Want to Go Home. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. 12.— Tlie feature of to-day's proceedings in the senate was the continuation of the tariff dis- I i cussion. After routine business had been transacted. Mr. Chase concluded his remarks began yesterday, compar ing the conduct of the postal service under Republican and Democratic ad ministrations. Mr. Dolph asked. Mr. Allison if the senate tariff bill put coal in any form on the free list. Mr. Al lison replied that coal slack or culm was, put on the free list, but that i. was the , nitration of the majority of the finance : committee to restore it to the dutiable ; | list. Mr. Call addressed the senate at length. He spoke of Mr. Piatt's at- : tempt to connect financial questions with : the old difficulties that existed be- I tween the people of the United: I States as unworthy of any reasoning I mind. The Democratic party proposed \ to reduce taxes on articles of general j consumption. The Republican party, | he said, had insisted that taxation was a i benefit and not an injury to the people • I of the country. He deplored the doc- • i trine on which the senate bill was i based. It was a fatal mistake— a mis-! take which concerned the rich as well. i j as the poor. The South had but little • j i to do with the movement for tariff re- i j form. It was the uprising of the intel- j ligent thought of the world. Mr. Haw ' | ley spoke briefly. He said that he had j intended making a long speech, but his j I heart was in another place. He thought j I the senate bill the best first draft of a , tariff bill ever submitted to congress.* Nobody, however, believed that it could be disposed of at this session. In his humble judgment the best thing : that senators could do was to go home, and HE FOE ONE was GOING. * *. \ Mr. Reagan addressed the senate on the* tariff question. He said that he would not agree to vote for every item in tho; house bill nor against every item in the bill before the senate. During his.re marks Mr. Reagan made a statement about the amount of money taken out of the pockets of the people by the manu facturers, to which both Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Hoar objected, and a long con-" troversy ensued. At its conclusion, the question at issue being apparently as j much clouded as before. Mr. Reagan j said that he did not exp.ct to convince Mr. Aldrich that* tbe farmers of Texas should not be robbed of one-half of their possessions for the benefit of the manufacturers of Rhode Island. At the conclusion of Mr. Rea gan's remarks Mr. George gave notice that, if the bill to prohibit the use of steam presses in pi inting government securities was not reported back from the finance committee by Monday, he would move to discharge the committee from further consideration of it and to pass the bill. Mr. Aldrich explained that the bill was in the hands of a sub committee. Conference reports on the Forth of July claims bill and the bill to retire Gen. Pieasanton were agreed to. The resolution of Mr. Mitchell for the investigation of the arrears of work in the general land office was adopted. After a short executive session the sen ate adjourned until Monday. LEGISLATIVE ERRORS. President Cleveland Corrects a Couple With His Veto. Special to the Globe. Washington. Oct. 12.— The president to-day vetoed the senate bill granting a restoration of pension to Sarah A. Wood bridge on the grounds that the precedent ought not to be established of granting a pension to a soldier's widow after re marriage, when the second husband still survives. The president, in his veto message, says: "If in pension legis lation we attempt to determine the cases i of this description, in which the second , husband cannot or does not properly maintain the soldier's widow whom he has married, we shall open the door to j much confusion and uncertainty, as well as unjust discrimination. 1 am glad to learn, from a statement con- i mined in the committee's report, that i this beneficiary, though in a condition making the aid of a pension very desir able, has a small income derived from | property inherited from her mother." The president to-uay also vetoed the i bill authorizing the secretary of the i treasury to settle the claim of James M. Wilbur for extra work in laying the j tiling in the New York postoftice build- | ing in 1874. The claim amounted to about $45,000. Bond Offerings and Acceptances.. i Special to the Globe.

Eugene . _. Wilson and Chris Gallagher at .New IT m. New ___-, Minn.. Oct. 12. — Hon. Eugene Wilson and Chris A. Gallagher addressed an immense meeting to-night at Turner hall. Mr. Wilson showed the fallacy of a war tariff in a masterly way. The audience cheered him to the | echo. Mr. Gallagher also tore the tariff to pieces. The audience followed him . in a way that must have been gratify ing to the distinguished gentleman. The vivid picture of William R. Merriam rolling a barrel ahead of him took the audience by storm. Republicans looked glum. Brown county will be heard from Nov. 6, and it will be a funeral march for the g. o. p. Five hundred torch bearers, with an additional num ber of enthusiastic Democrats from St. Peter, paraded the streets. It was a sight which gladdened the hearts of the faithful. Six hundred majority for Cleveland and Thurman and Wilson will be the result. Hon. John Lind, who has arrived from Washington to mend his fences, will fina no mean antagonist in Mr. Wilkinson. The farmers are aroused and will not support any man who does not represent their interests. A Coming: Great Meeting;. Special to the Globe. Bbainekd, Oct. 12.— 0n F riday even-. ing Hon.

But the great meeting of the campaign is now set for Thursday evening, Nov. 1, for the gubernatorial candidate, Eugene Wilson," who will be accompanied by Chris Gallagher. The boys propose to let* 'er go along with Chris, and five bands have been engaged and- prepara tions made for a torchlight procession of 1,000 Darning torches. It is proposed to bring here the people of all the coun ties in this part of the state. -__■ The Outlook Rosy. Special to the Globe.

Some of the most prominent Scandinavians give it out fiat that Nel son wants Comstock to come as near defeat as possible. Galvin Did the Honors. Special to the Globe. Elbow Lake. Minn., Oct. 12.— One of the grandest Democratic rallies seen in this part of the country occurred to night. The occasion was Judge Rand's tariff reform speech.: He was intro duced to the audience by Pat Galvin as one of the apostles of reform. Be gave a glowing account of Cleveland and his administration, and compared him with one-dollar -a-day Harrison, whom he prophesied would be buried by the ballot box in November. Merriam got a well deserved schorching. which will have its effect on election day. ■ _ ■ - Choice of the People's Convention. Special to the Globe. .

One Killed Outright, Another Fatally Wounded, the Third Escaping Unhurt. Sensational Episode in the Ecclesiastical Trial of Rev. B. S. Taylor. Special to the Globe. Deadwood, Dak., Oct. 12.— About S o'clock this morning a dastardly at tempt at train robbery was made in Reno gulch, on the Black Hills & Fort Pierre railroad. The road is owned and operated by the Homestake Mining company, which employs a large num ber of men at wood chopping at Browns ville, the terminus of the road, distant about twenty miles from Lead City. This was the regular pay-day at Brownsville, and it was generally known that Paymaster Reemer would go out with $15,000 to liquidate the Sep tember pay roll. The robbers, aware of this, had planned to wreck the train, slaughter the crew, capture the boodle and escape. To carry this out the fish-plates had been removed and the rails spiked so that the engine dropped down on* the ties, and the coach was also derailed. Fortunately the train was riot running at a very rapid rate. By reversing the leaver the engineer quickly brought it to a standstill. As it stopped three MEN rose UP in the brush and commanded hands up, and before the order could be obeyed opened fire. The fire was returned at once by Paymaster Reemer, who, armed with a double-barreled, shotgun, man aged to bring down* two of the three desperadoes. One of them, Charles Clark, was shot in the ear, and crawled off in the underbrush to die. The other, John Wilson, was wounded in the head and in the left side, the buckshot penetrating his spine. He is now in jail here, but will likely die be fore morning. The third man, Charles Johnson, was unhurt. He reached his horse and succeeded in getting away. Sheriff Knight, in command of a large posse, is scouring the country, and he will In all probability be captured. T , .. 11-:, .-_ jonn v> uson, wounueu man, IS A NOTED DESPERADO, hailing from New York. He came, to the Hills in the early days, and has always been supposed to have been a member of the old gang of stage robbers that operated in 1876 and 1877 in the Black Hills. After his capture he stated that there is now _: an organized band of thirty men in the neighborhood who are determined on horse stealing, train wrecking and rob bing and none of whom will stop at any thing to accomplish their ends. The story is not credited. Besides Mr. Reenter there were on the train R. E. Blackstone.superi utendent of the Father De Smet mine; John B. Cumisky, engineer, and Morgan, fireman: Charles Crist, conductor; Charles Lavine, brake man, and Hans Anderson, a passenger, residing in Brownsville. The affair has created the greatest excitement and should Johnson be captured, it is likely to go hard with him. RECORDS WERE DOCTORED. A Sensational Episode in the Trial of Rev. B. S. Taylor. Special to tbe Globe. Jamestown, Dak., Oct. 12.— The sec ond day's session of the North Dakota conference of Methodists opened at 9 o'clock this morning, the regular con ference being preceded with half hour of devotional services. Presiding Elder Plannette, of the Grand Forks district, read the report of the year's work in his district. The following fig ures show the progress of work during the four years of his service as presid ing elder: Number of charges in 1884, 12; in 1888, 34; number of members in 1884, 1,151; in 1888, 2.000: number of churches in 1884, 8: in 1888, 28; number of parsonages in 1884,3; in 1888, 13; value of church property in 1884, $18,400: in 1888, W2.800: raised for mis sions in ISB4. $208.25; in 1888, $1,800; church extension in 1884, -.29.75; in 1888, $300; ministerial support in 1884. $6,000; in 1888, $18,400. Five new chvrches were dedicated and six new parsonages were bnilt. Presiding Elder Bilbi's report of the Fargo district showed church movements on foot at Ripon and Edgley. A camp meeting was held in Winchester circuit, Emmons county, and at Hamlinc. the joint result of which was sixty-six conversions. After disposing of a little routine business Bishop Hurst cleared the church of all spectators, and the trial of Rev. B. S. Taylor was resumed. Mr. Taylor's counsel are Rev. S. N. Griffith and 11. Priton Cooper. A sensational scene oc curred in the trial to-day, and has leaked out despite the oath of secrecy taken by the members of the confer ence. It seems that in his official re port of the trial the secretary neglected to comply with certain formalities re quired by the church discipline, and without which it did not show that Taylor had been suspended. Taylor secured a copy of the report before these necessary interpoiatans had been made and taxed the secretary with tampering with the record. Miller broke down and confessed all, where upon Taylor's counsel raised the ques tion of whether Taylor had been sus pended if the original record did not show such to be the case. The prosecu tion maintained that defendant was suspended on testimony and that the changes cut no figure with Taylor's guilt or innocence, that the changes were made simply to rectify an over sight. The case is still on trial, and when the testsmony is all in will be de cided by a vote of the whole conference. The anniversary of the : missionary so ciety was celebrated to-night. Rev. H. Priton Cooper delivered the address. _- ."* An Ore Train Wrecked- Special to the Globe^asjkWs^i Deixth, Minn..

SHOT THROUGH AND THROUGH A Winnipeg Bookseller the Victim of a Mysterious Shooting; Affair. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., Oct. 12.— A most re maikable shooting case occurred to-day. Alex Taylor, a prominent dealer in sta tionery, hailed a boy from a little brick house on McDermott street, telling him to call a doctor and cab. Both came, and Taylor, who was bleeding pro fusely, was taken to the hospital, where on examination it was found he had been shot through the left breast, the bullet going clean through. Taylor re fused to say how the deed was done, obstinately declining to make any state ment. He has been drinking heavily of late, and has been seen around the little house where he was shot a good deal. The house is not inhabited, although it is supposed it was frequented by suspi cious characters. The affair seems to be shrouded in mystery. The unfor tunate man, who can scarcely live, is well connected. Much speculation is indulged in as to whether Taylor shot himself or was shot by a paramour. A BIG TRADE Which Indicates the Magnitude of Farming; Operations in the Bonanza Region. Casselton, Oct. 12.— T. B.

Willing to Sell His Party for North Carolina Gold. Bluff Bets Made by Republican Gamblers Fail to Scare Democrats. Special to the Globe. New Soke. Oct. 12.— refusal of Mr. Morton, the vice-presidential candi date, and his firm, to deny or explain his effort to carry the state of North Carolina, in order to secure the pay ment of bonds held by Morton's tirm which were repudiated as fraudulent by the Democratic government of the state, created an immense sensation, and has thrown the Republican headquarters j into consternation. They have been I badly rattled several times lately, but ! never so badly as by this affair. The bonds in question are .said to be held by Morton, Bliss «.. Co. to the extent of $250,00.. They were issued without proper authority of law or consideration by a ring of plunderers. They were sold in the North and chiefly bought by Morton's syndicate. The courts of the state have held them to be invalid. They are, therefore, dead stock on the hands of the bankers. Be sides state officers, judges are to be chosen in North Carolina, and it is said if the Republicans carry the state Morton and his associates in the oppo sition will feel assured of getting full value for these discredited securities. Attention was first drawn .to the matter by the fact that when Morton went into the Republican headquarters he asked particularly about the state of North Carolina, Quay and all the rest were for a time puzzled to know why their candidate for vice president I seemed to care more about the Tar state than the whole of the rest of the country and seemed more anxious about the re sult there by a long shot than about his election as vice president. This SET THEM TO THINKING and talking. That loose-ton estab lishment, which pretends to great reti cence and discretion, met with its usual fate of having its secrets known all over. Inquiring visitors then went to work, with the result of disclosing the reasons tor Morton s concern aooiu a Southern state, and the reasons were so directly in accord with the purely com mercial nature of -'."some, fellow, like Morton." as lngalls called him. that suspicion soon became certainty. But it was expected the firm would be able to say. something", in explanation, but when Mr. Cross, Morton's partner, was called on to-day about the matter; he flatly refused to say anything, whatever, and, on further questioning, his denials took such a shape as to really confirm the whole story. There is serious talk among the Republicans here tonight about asking Morton to get off the ticket. His po sition as a director of the Canadian Pacific railway, especially in view of THE FRAUD PERPETRATED, in falsely dating back his resignation, his inability to contradict the charge of violating the laws of the United States by hiring foreign contract labor, and his general dumbness and Inefficiency as a candidate, except in drawingchecks. render him obnoxious to his own party. Even as a check drawer he has not proved himself half as much a success as was expected, and evidently means to make the election pay his own way if he can. There is a d_il of talk about the pay envelope scandal, and to-day Democraticheadquarters are flooded with specimens of bull-dozing envelopes and there are many very indignant letters received from employes who are deter mined to revenge at the polls the insult put on them by the operation of this part of the machinery of Republican headquarters. In all directions the Re publican campaign is breaking down, and candid Republicans are. not slow to acknowledge it. The local nominations have, .alien flat. .The ticket will run as badly as the Gibbs ticket did four years ago, and whatever Republicans go to vote for Hewitt will In nine cases out of ten vote for the Demo cratic candidates all down the list A particularly close canvass of New York just completed shows a plurality for Cleveland and Thurman of about 44,000. If, however, the current continues to run as strongly Democratic as it is now, the Democratic success will be much greater. It is pretty well set tled today there is to be a Democratic union on both congressional and legis lative nominations, and that the contest between Tammany hall and the county Democracy is to be confined entirely to municipal and county offices. The pro dicament of the Republican managers was aptly defined this evening by a very prominent Democrat, who . -aid: "They are just spending their time hopping around from one rotten branch 'to another. On the other hand, the Democrats here anil everewhere. ARE moving ON SOLIDLY, enthusiastically and systematically In support of the nominees of the St. Louis convention. The New York local or ganizations are vi'* : -g with each other in the number and extent of the Cleve land and Thurman meetings held in every district, and those who support different candidates for city offices fra ternize without reserve in the Cleveland and Thurman clubs. The Republican game of blurt' with fat-fried monopoly money has . broken down. The chief result to the Republicans is that a great part of their headquarters funds is locked up in the safes of stockholders, out of harm's way until after election. Not less than $250, --000 of Mi*. Quay : fund is thus put away where it can do no harm to the people's cause. It baa not cost the Democratic managers a cent to accomplish this important result, as the national Democratic headquarters have not gone INTO THE GAMBLING BUSINESS and the Republican headquarter bets have been taken up on business princi ples by men . who are always on the watch for such children of darkness, commonly called "suckers" by the bet ting fraternity. The . word is not ele gant, but it exactly describes the pres- - ent position of the Republican managers in the eyes of the sporting world. _____ heavy contributors to the Republican fund very seriously object to seeing their money disposed of in this way in an ineffectual attempt to influence pub lic opinion, while It can be of no possi ble use for the purpose for which they contributed.
