St. Paul's Popular Statesman Predicts Cleveland's Tri umphant Election. In spite of the drizzling rain which started in about 7 o'clock last evening, there was a large turn-out of the Demo cratic clubs of the city to do homage to lion. Edmund Kice, and 2,000 is a con servative estimate of the number of men in line. The First Ward Cleveland and Thurman Scandinavian club turned out fifty men. The Second ward club bad fully 200 in line. The Bamsey county colored league were out fifty .strong. The Eighth Ward Polish Cleve land and Thurman club contributed fifty more, and the Citizens' club of the same ward ran the total up to 100, while the Cleveland and Thurman club of the same ward had 100 torchbearers in line. The Fifth Ward Cleveland and Thur man and Bohemian clubs had a repre sentation of 250. The Sixth ward sent 100 men. and the Kamsey County Dem ocratic club turned out 200 strong. Each ward club formed at its re spective headquarters, and all were ordered to reudeavous in trout of the Grand block, so that the scene in that vicinity from 8 o'clock until the time for starting was AXIMATED AXD TUIH.LIANT. ',7 Each club had one or two transparen cies, and the lights from the torches threw a fitful glare into the eyes of the crowds of curious spectators who lined both sides of the street. The mottoes upon each bit of illuminated cloth were read with interest, ami were all of them most appropriate, and elided on all sides most favorable comment. Among the transparencies 1 were noticed such mottoes as "True and Safe;" "A Pa triot Soldier— Eugene M. Wilson;" '•For Governor— NoS in Ours;" "Labor ing Men Demand Rice, Cleveland and Thurman;" •'Daniel Buck Proa Blue Earth for Lieutenant Governor— Oar Dan;" "Ramsey County Colored League— For Congress.Edmund Rice;" "For People's Choice, Edmund Rice;" •'Tariff on Rice, 8,000 Majority in ISSS-" "Fourth Congressional District Solid for Rice," "No Taxation, Except for the Support of the Government:" "Fifth Wart' Bohemian Club,*" "Mem Dog Schneider Yas Gone Dead," "Vere Vas Mem Dog Schneider?"' "The Twins Unite on Rice," "The Twins are for Wilson," and many other well executed mottoes full of timely hits. The clubs were all on hand by 8:15, and at 8:20 the procession, under the marshalship of Col. William Crooks, started, and moved over the following line of march: From Grand Opera House block on Wabasha street to Sev enth street, to Seven corners, down Third street to Sibley, to Sixth street, to the Ryan hotel. fBPSSI The streets were lined with spec tators, and, as the 2.000 Democratic voters passed in review before the crowds of the curious, the applause and cheering was continuous until they drew up in line under the Sixth street balcony at the Ryan. In the lobby the next congressman from the Fourth district had been HOLDING AX INFORMAL LEVEE for a half hour. No betterindication of the -tend of popular opinion could have been found than by keenly observing the warmth and cordiality with which Mr. Rice was greeted on ail sides. He reached the " city travel-stained and tired at an early hour yester day morning, and last evening was the first opportunity which presented itself for the voters of the county to do him honor. There were conserva tive business men, capitalists and politicians surrounding him in an effort to grasp him by the hand, and assure him of personal support. Among those who were i.oticed in the lobby were Eugene Wilson, P. H. Kelly. Judge Wilkins. Thomas O'Reilly, Secretary Landberg, W. P. Murray, John Clark, Senator E. W. Durant, Hon. ('. 1). O'Brien, City Clerk Prendergast, P. T. Kavanagh, J. W. Lawrence. R. T. O'Connor, James O'Brien and John W. Willis. Mr. Rice chatted affably with all, and had a pleasant word to say to each man as he came to offer his congratulations. As soon as the distant strains of music warned the crowd of the approach of the procession a general rush was made for the Sixth street balcony. Windows upon that side of the house" were thrown up, and out of each leaned the heads of the guests of the hotel, who joined with hearty good will in the ensuing enthusiasm. Edmund Rice, under the escort of a guard of honor. stepped out on the bal cony, and his appearance was the sig nal for a hearty cheer from the crowd below. Mi'.ny well-known men from cities were also awarded posts of honor, and after a brief review of the proces sion and a short serenade the formal welcome home to Hon. Edmund Rice was inaugurated. As boob as the clubs had arranged themselves in points of vantage, so that each club could hear to advantage, John W. Willis step! to the front of the bal cony, and. in behalf of the clubs, pre sented the next congressman in the fol lowing well-chosen words: Mr. Idee, entertaining, in common with all good citizens of St. Pan]; the highest regard, admiration and affection for yourself, the members of the Democratic dribs of this city avail themselves gladly of lhe present occa sion to salute you upon your return from Washington and give you a cordial welcome home. They present to you. sir, their com pliments and their best wishes. lv this • demonstration we desire not merely to ex press our sentiments of personal respect, but also to emphasize the general commendation of your official course a a member of the federal bouse of repreutatives. To the lau rel- which you have repca'edly won upon many a field must now be added the oak leaf wreath, significant of the perfect per formance of civic duty we derive especial Mtistactioa from your acts in uniformly opposing the theory that the wage-earner is enriched by high taxation, and in steadily contending for the policy of abolishing the taxes which weigh so heavily upon the labor of this country. Passing in review your entire congressional career, your constituency say "Well done," and are pre paring to serve their interests by renewing your tenure of legislative office. We greet you, sir with the heartiest assurances of our confidence and rapport, and shall zealously labor to make your next majority a stroke of annihilation to tbe cause of monopoly, class legislation and high taxation IX Till- CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT. Fellow citizens! No introduction is re- Qttired in this city for our present distiu guished representative in contress. I. there fore, present to you without further formal ity one of your old frieuds, lion. Edmuud Kice. When the applause incidental to the mention of the name of Hon. Edmund Rice had subsided, that gentleman, in well measured tones which carried con viction to the hearts of all his hearers, said: My Friends and Fellow Citizens: This inspiring demonstration affects me most iii ply. and it is with grateful ac knowledgements for the houor ten dered to me that 1 pssure yon of my thanks. I have been in Washington at tending to the business of my constituents during the longest session of congress iv the history of the government. It does not be come me to say whetkei I have done well or ill, but if my capacity to serve you effectively bad been equal to my desire you would have bad, if you have not now. no cause for com plaint But. my friends, the burning ques tion of the hour is the revision of the tariff, brought to the attention of congress by the able and fearless position of the -president in his annual message in December last, and the only subject of wbich he treated. He clearly presented to the couutry. through congress, the fact that in truth and justice the great body of the people were fearfully taxi d ujK)h the necessaries of life for tlie benefit of I a comparatively small number of men, who are engaged in "what are CALLED THE TROTECTED INDUSTRIES. That message was as courageous, bold and sagacious as any that bas emanated from the long line of his illustrious predecessors, and he will take rank with any of them as a pro found and honest executive as has ever oc cupied the presidential chair. He has de monstrated to. the country that the exorbi tant taxes collected and turned into tbe treas ury were drawing from the business revenues of the people such an em r nous amount of money as to endanger the safety of business and bring about panics that would involve the interests of the entire country in disas ter. He demonstrated that the laborer was being wronged to such an extent that, al though worthy, he was deprived of his hire, and that the husbandn an did not receive the reward of his toil. He was careful to point out, also, that no injustice should be done to those engaged in the protected industries, and on the line of that great message toe Mills bill was framed, passed the house of representatives and is before the country, It provides for a reduction of between 5 and 0 per cent en the dollar of the tax under ex isting law. it places the highest tax upon the luxuries of life used by the few. and the smallest on the necessaries of life used by th.- many. It en larges the free list, and places wool and many articles called raw materials used in the manufacturing Industries also upon this list to encourage competition in THE MARKETS OF TUB WORLD. The senate committee on hnaoce after ten months delay has reported a substitute for the Mills bill upon a theory directly the re verse of that bill, in accordance it is pre sumed.with the deductions of Gen. Harrison, the Republican candidate forthe presidency. to the effect that it is not the length but tlie direction of the step in that bill taken by the majority of the house of representatives, leaving it to be inferred, and which is un doubtedly the truth, that the step should be reversed and lead to higher taxation instead of lower. Mich are the theories and faiths of the two great parties— one leading to low and just taxation, the other to high and unjust taxa tion. Now is the lime for the people to rise up and decide which of these parties shail prevail on this vital question, and which ever way they decide it now will establish the policy for many years to come. The con fident beiiet of our friends is that Mr. Cleve land WILL BE TRICMrnANTLT ELECTED; that his honesty, vigilance and ability have convinced the country that he will be safe and faithful to his great trust for the next four years, as he has been inthe past four. Al ready the contest is won, the issue has been considered by the voters, and two weeks from to-night the verdict of the people of this great Union will be that (.rover Cleve land shall be the next president of the Baited States. E. M. Wilson, your candidate for governor, deserves your confidence and the support of the voters of Minnesota. He has held many offices, state and national, aud has discharged the duties of each with signal ability, with credit to himself, and reflected great honor upon the positions he held. His integrity and great ability have never been questioned. His experience in public affairs added to the other qualifications I have named should, and I believe will, induce the people to make him governor of this great state for the next two years. Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, the next speaker, stood patiently waiting for the three rousing cheers, which he had called for in honor of Hon. Edmund Rice, to subside ere be addressed the clubs. When this result had been ac complished lie spoke as follows: Fellow Citizens ot St. Paul and Vicinity: lam proud to be here to-night to aid you welcoming home that old, tried and trusted citizen. Hon. Edmuud Rice. He and 1 were both mayors of our respective cities at the same time, and 1 will say that I would come on foot, and barefoot, at any time to do him homage and welcome him back to St. Paul. And we of Minneapolisdo not feel disposed to give him to you altogether. He does not belong to you, or to your county. He belongs to this state and district. [Cheers.] I have sat in the legislature with him and know whereof I speak when 1 tell you that you lost a good mayor when you parted with Mr. Rice, but you found a good one in Bob Smith. [Cheers.] We will show you the es teem in which we hold the former ou election day, and we will say of THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC TICKET at that time: Web done, good and faithful public servants. The chairman then presented Hon. Eugene Wilson, and in introducing him referred to the fact that he was In every sense an ideal statesman and an able lawyer. To an accompaniment of en thusiastic cheers the gentleman thus spoken of, addressing the crowd, said: My Fellow-Citizens of St. Paul: I thank you" for this reception, but I came here to iii_ht to personally assist iv greeting the dis tinguished citizen who stands by my side. 1 have known him for thirty-two years. He has been part and parcel of the advancement and development of the Northwestern coun try, and every time he has been before the people as a candidate he lias been successful. Then again he has shown both as mayor and congressman his sterling ability as a defender ot the interests of the people. He has stood firm for lower taxes and for taking the burden off the shoulders of the people, [Cheers.] The Republicans of this state stood with the Democrats favoring tariff reductions. But now they feel that they occupy a position towards the Republican party platform some what akin to the platform of a railway car. As soon as a mau mounts it he is routed with the sign •VET OFT THE PLATFORM." [Cheers and laughter. l The cry of free trade ill deceive no one, and even the head of the Republican party is forced to admit that our platform is but a step toward" that result. But the rainfalls upon the just Dem ocrats as well as the unjust Republicans, and so I will not detain you. Only let mc say to you, work from now until election day, and Hennepin county will roll into line with you. Let me close by thanking you for your atten tion, and hope that the North Star state will in the future be placed in the constellation of Democratic slates forever. Hon. C. D. O'Brien was next intro duced, and. in the course of his remarks said: "Fellow Citizens: I am proud to be able to stand before . and address a representative Democratic gathering, and I am glad to say that you are like the sands upon the shore, or the leaves upon the trees. 1 have always been proud of you, and now ask for a ma jority of 7,000 on the Cth day of Novem ber for Kice and Wilson and reform. The reformed and unreformed Demo SAINT PAUL, MINN., WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1888.— TEN PAGES. crats will take care of the county, while you take care of the congressional ticket.*' Hon. E. W. Durant. of Stillwater, who had been an interested spectator of the scene of enthusiasm, was called upon as a good Democrat, who could never allow an ovation of this kind to pass unnoticed. The ex-ice king good naturedly assented to the proposition to address the crowd. "Gentlemen, 1 well understand what means this sea of upturned faces.*' he said, as he advanced to the front of the balcony. "For I know you have as sembled out of compliment to our dis tinguished guest. You have a prince among you who has a patent of nobility conferred him by nature itself. Mr. Rice has just returned from Washing ton, and comes here to-night at the earnest request of the citizens of the entire district, because the necessity of the occasion warranted that he should. Soman generals used to return from war dragging prisoners behind their chariots. But Mr. Kice is preceded by his friends, who gather in his honor to night in recognition of his glorious career in the past. Let us place upon our banners the names of Cleve land, Thurman, Eugene \i ilson and Edmund Kice, and it is your duty to see to it that all good Democrats give them united support. If you are, as I know you are. real good Democrats, then each of you will get two good Republicans to vote with you, and thereby insure our majority the Oth of November. See to it. gentlemen, that Ramsey county is all right." John W. Willis then thanked all for tlieir kind attention and the enthusiasm manifested, and with three rousing cheers and a User in honor of Hon. Ed mund Rice the ovation in his honor came to an end. ««» IS MARRIAGE A FAILURE? The Commissioner of Labor Will Inform Congress Next January. Special to the Globe.

The West India Liner Atlas Run Down by a Ferry- ;-ii boat. A Yawning* Chasm Made in Her Bow When She Was *• Struck. Within Five Minutes After the Collision She Sank in North River. The Accident Due to the Care lessness of a Substitute Pilot. New York, Oct. 23.— The steamer Atlas, of the Atlas line, bound from Port Limon, Hayti, having left that port on the 13th inst. was sunk this evening off Vesey street. The steamer was struck on the starboard bow by the ferry boat Central, and ten minutes later the Atlas sank. The ferry boat struck the steamer bow on. The only things to be seen of the sunken vessel are the topmasts and funnels. The Atlas was coming up the river at a low speed. There was fog at the time. The steamer was about 508 yards out from the docks. When off Liberty street both vessels collided. The bow of the Central crashed into the Atlas and bent the iron plates like so many pieces of board. For a second or two the Atlas trembled and 1 sled, and then began to sink, bow lirst, so that soon the propeller was out of. the water. When the collision occurred all hands on board the Atlas were ordered on deck. The engineer obeyed the sum mons without stopping the engine, so that the propeller whirled round and round in the air. In this position the steamer remained for about five minutes. The vessel then plunged for ward and went down apparently SETTLING ON AN EASY KEEL. As the steamer began to sink the crew and all hands took to the rigging' Just at this juncture a tug boat steamed alongside and took off all on board. The tugboat Elsinore was but a short dis tance away from both vessels when the collision occurred, and "Mate Emorin, speaking of the accident, said it was impossible to tell which of the vessels was in fault, as it was difficult to see clearly more than a couple of hundred yards? so dense was the fog that hung low over the river. Later on another serious accident was only averted by great care. When it grew dark a vessel bound up the river nearly ran into the sunken steamer, there being no danger lights displayed from the Atlas. Cant. J. W. . Tobin, commander of the Atlas, and. Pilot George Sampson, who brought tho;" vessel into port, were seen at the ofhce? : I of Pint, Porwood «fc Co., agents* i " of the line. (apt. Tobin. who is a short, thick-set and bronzed-faced man said: "It was about 4:30 o'clock this afternoon when we were coming up and reached the Liberty street ferry. There were on the bridge myself. Pilot Sampson and Capt. Barret of the tug Goodwin, which was* tied up alongside and was to put us in the flock." Just be fore reaching the ferry at Liberty street the ferry boat Central came out of the slip. When she saw us she stopped in answer to our whistles. Then she started ahead and. struck us about twenty feet forward of the bridge on the starboard side." "Yes." inter rupted Pilot Sampson, "when I saw the ferry boat coming out of the slip I rang for the engines to be slowed up and the steamer was almost stopped. Just then the ferry boat started to -go ahead, and I gave two whistles twice. Despite that the ferry boat •- " .-•.''"_•'; .■; CAME ON AND STRUCK US." •'We went ahead." resumed Capt. Tobin, "for about five minutes, and then the ship went down. We have thirty men in our crew, and it was just as much as they could do to get over the side of the vessel into the tug boat." The Atlas had a cargo of 11,000 bunches of bananas, 100 tons of logwood and other miscellaneous freight. Capt. Curtis was in charge of the Central when she started on her 4:23 o'clock trip from Communipaw. The ferry officials are reticent about the accident, but claim that the Atlas was at fault. The wheels of the Central were re versed when she struck the steamship on the starboard bow and crushed in the iron side of the Atlas. The bow rudder of the Central was broken and her rails were damaged. She proceeded to Communipaw. where she was laid up for repairs. No one was injured. The crew of the ferry boat decline to talk about the accident. The Atlas now rests on an even keel about Coo feet off the Barclay street pier. The acting pilot of the ferry boat is known to have been a substitute for the regular man, who was laid up sick at home. The substitute in charge at the time of the accident was Thomas Nelson. Whether he was to blame or not, he certainly was unfortunate during the whole day. In the morning "another accident had occurred to the ferry boat, when she ran into and smashed the bridge on the Jersey side when landing after a cross the-river trip. • MARINE MISHAPS.

Nearly every man, woman and child in Ohio has heard of City Treasurer Thomas Axworthy, and thousands of them personally acquaint ed with him. He is, perhaps, the most popular politician in Northern Ohio. So highly is he regarded that he could have been nominated for congress this year if he had but said the word. In business circles he has cut a very big figure, and the statement is often made that whatever he touches rr-:X TURNS TO GOLD. lie has real estate, ships that sail the lakes, coal mines and iron ranges and many other valuable investments. When at home he is a prominent figure on the street, and at every turn is greet ed by old and young, rich and poor, Re publicans and Democrats. A law which provides that the funds of the city must be deposited in a bank, the municipal ity to be credited with the interest on the same, was to have gone into ellect on the sth in stant. Proposals were asked for, but all the banks save two refused to make bids. . The result was that the bids received were .rejected, and new ones will be solicited. However, Mr. Axworthy was not in the city when the proposals were opened, and his absence occasioned some comment. On Saturday Mayor's clerk, Briggs, submitted to the city board of revision a partial report of his" investigation into the business methods of the municipal officials. Still Mr. Axworthy was out of town, and yes terday morning bright and early the one inquiry on the streets was: "WHERE IS THE TREASURER?" - Occasionally the indefinite answer was made to the effect that he was in New York. His business and official associates declared that he was there: and was stopping at the Windsor. A telegram of inquiry was sent to that hotel and the answer returned that Mr. Axworthy had arrived there on Sept. 29, iii the morning, and had departed in the evening for Montreal, Canada. There all trace of him was lost. Mean while his bonusmen began to investi gate. They are United States Senator U.K. Payne and J. 11. Wane, Jr., and are pledged for $500,000. They, tegether with leading city officials and attorneys, were in consultation all last night and adjourned early this morning. The finance committee of. the common council, after a hasty examination of the books, state that they believe the loss to the city by reason of Mr. Axworthy's disappearance is .500,000. Senator Payne and' J. 11. Wade, Jr., the bondsmen of the city treasurer, at 2 o'clock this morning filed petitions and affidavits in the common pleas court, praying for an attachment against Mr. Axworthy's vessels.real estate and other property. The schooner Republic and three-quarters interest in the schooner Page were attached, and his money and stocks in the local banks were garni sheed. The sheriff is now attaching the real property of the missing treas urer, including: his farm on Lorain street, outside "the city limits, and his summer residence on Lake avenue. The National Bank of Commerce also began a suit for $200,000 to recover on a promissory note they had discounted. It is said Mr. Axworthy has $200,000 with him. The announcement of Ax worthy's defalcation PRODUCED A PROFOUND SENSATION, and in the confusion which ensued it was impossible to get at the details. The first excitement of the day was oc casioned by the beginning in the com mon pleas court of actions in attach ment against all of Axworthy's vessel property and real estate, and the serv ing of writs of garnishment upon a half dozen banks. These actions were be gun by two of the bondsmen and the National Bank of Commerce. The city's funds had been deposited in banks by Axworthy, and the actions against these banks were begun with the object of tieing up the money he had left in his flight. At the City hall, confusion reigned. The mayor and auditor were both out of . the city. The small reserve in the treasury was soon exhausted and at noon payment on two warrants was refused. There was do more money, and it was impossible to draw on the funds in bank which had been tied up by order of the court. The finance committee of the common coun cil was hastily summoned and an inves tigation begun. Late this afternoon it was announced that of the $876,887.(14, turned over to the treasurer and by him deposited in bank, only $147,450.05 re mained on deposit. The shortage there fore amounts to $420,437.59. Of this sum Treasurer Axworthy is believed to have taken at least $200,000 in cash with him. The police pension fund and the fireman's relief fund, which were unsecured by bond, are gone, and over $192,000 of the board % of education fund GOES INTO THE SHORTAGE. This last item is secured by a separate bond of $-250,000, with Selah Chamber lain and T. P. Handy as, sureties. It is believed that Axworthy s vessel prop erty and real estate will inventory nearly half a million, and the bondsmen are secured. The city will probably lose nothing, as the bonds are good.. No trace of the missing man has oeen se cured. It is asserted that he is in Liver pool. England, on his way to Belgium, and that he is well provided with ready money, It is rumored, but the rumor lias not been confirmed, that Axworthy lost heavily in the recent wheat squeeze and that he was in . the Gogebic : iron crash for a" large sum. The common council met to-night to take action in the premise?, It was decided to declare the office of treasurer vacant, and that will be done as soon as the proper reso- ; lution can be passed, when a temporary treasurer will be , appointed to fill out J Axworthy's term. ... - - Advices from Montreal state that Ax worthy arrived tliere Sept. 30, register- ' ing at the St. Lawrence hotel, where he remained until Oct. 12. Montreal v de tectives could not • trace : him after he left. rr'. '■"■■- x-7-7:> ' ' :-.-.■ @*~t-*t -r-t^t-t^-r-t^rrt^t^ r" r^r-<s PROFITABLE READING! 3.

Gould Gets Back at Harrison's Few Ex-K. of L. Adherents. Special to the Globe. New York, Oct. 23.— The Brooklyn registration closed at so late an hour to-night (11 p. m.) that the figures will not be tabulated in time for use before to-morrow; but, notwithstanding the rainy day, the registration places were crowded at all hours/arid it is evident that the record made surpasses both precedent and anticipation. As in New York, the increase will of course tell in favor of the Democrats, and a Democratic plurality qf not less than 22.000 is to be relied on. United States Marshal MacMahon was spoken to to-day rela tive to the reports of the Republican schemes to manipulate the elections in the interests of the minority party. He said that the whole business was nothing more than Chinese thunder." That not only from his knowl edge of the United Statea laws and the method of their enforcement, but also from acquaintance with the state statutes and those whose duty it was to compel obedience to them, he was quite sure that the election in this city would be full, free and fair; that any attempts at violation of law would be punished, and their success prevented. The city papers are filled with epigram and ridicule at the ex pense of the Republican committee men and their absurd nonsense about the canvasses that have been made in "their own imagination only. "Hon. Wil liam L. Scott was at the national Demo cratic headquarters this evening, and took occasion to criticise the most re cent statement of Mr. Blame about tho treasury deposits in the national banks. He said that no one could think that the originators of the . PRESENT SUB-TREASURY SYSTEM conceived the idea that the people could be taxed to such an extent as to draw a surplus of from $100,000,000 to $200,000, --000 trom the business and circulating medium of the country.- In fact $3,000. --000 was estimated as the maxittm sum : t that j would -• at any time accumulate in excess lof current liabilities.- -In the- correction of Mr. Blame's mispresentations -is the course of a com prii son instituted by t him between the action of our govern ment and that of England and France under similar circumstances, Mr. Scott says: "Mr. Blame compares the finan cial policy of our government with that of England and, France, and he does it in such a .way as to show that he is, either ignorant of the subject, or that he is treating it - with willful misrepresentation. The bank of England is purely a private coporation. The government of Great Britain has no more to do With it than it has with any other corporation chartered by and? under the authority of its parliament. The Bank, of France is also a private corporation, and the French government has no interest in it. • The Bank of Eng land is the financial agent of the English government, as I understand the system, the revenues as collected are daily deposited in the bank without interest or security, so that no part of the taxes collected in England is ever withdrawn from the CHANNELS OF TRADE and commerce. It is left where some one can borrow it if the government has ho use for it. The Bank of France is also the financial agent of the French government and the revenues of France are depositee: in it and withdrawn from it as in Eng land. Neither the Bank of England nor the Bank of France is required to deposit government securities for any balances due. 'there are no such banks in the United States as the Bank of England and the Bank of France. The Democratic party, during the policy of Andrew Jackson, settled the question finally and forever that this government should never create nor permit the growth of a great monster bank which might become more pow erful than the government it self. Wherein, then, does the policy adopted by the secretary of the treasury in making the deposits he has in the national banks differ from the system of government deposits existing not only in England and France to-day, but also in Germany. This is espe cially true when all the national banks, regardless of the political creeds of their officers, have been TREATED ALIKE. In my city the officers of the largest national bank, both as regards capital and deposits, are Democratic, and they neither have nor could get government deposits, because the quota assigned to that locality had been filled. Two or three national banks whose officers are Republicans, have such deposits, and yet the Democrats do not claim tliat these Republican banks are robbing the government. It is only Mr. Blame who claims this, and surely he ought to know the question. As to the disposition of the surplus is another subject, and I wiil not consider it now." Edwin F. Gould has to-day laid before the public a sworn statement regarding the action of Local .Assembly 2212, K. of L-, Indianapolis, by which at a meeting composed of only foul: persons, Mr. Gould's course in opposi tion to Harrison was discussed. Mr. Gould now swears that there is no truth in the statement that he at any time ex pressed an opinion favorable to Harri son, and he calls attention to the fact that neither ex-Gov. Porter, who was the ' ■■<■-■■ ; - -.--: DEFENDER OF THE STRIKERS, whom Harrison prosecuted, nor ex- Mayor Cobin, a leading Republican, who was mayor of Indianapolis at the time of the strike, \ cororborates Harri son's side of the story. He further tes tifies that he was duly and properly authorized by D. A. 100, of the Knights of J Labor, to write the letter to local assembly 203 and to attach the seal of the order as secretary of that body. He.- adds that the pretended local assembly 2,212 is no longer in existence, and has not held a lawful meeting since Oct. .... In conclusion Mr. Gould de clares that the resolution he refutes, is . simply the work of forgers.- The gas fixture makers :of New York and Brooklyn have organized a Cleveland, Thurman and Hill club, with head quarters at Arlington hall. There are many similar clubs in all leading cities.
