■- — HE HAS SPOKEN. Grover Cleveland Gives His . Letter of Acceptance to the Country. Issues Made Clear by Lan guage With Only One Meaning. ** _____ _ _ _- No Doubt Left as to His Views Upon Any of the Questions. An Unequivocal Acceptance of the Platform of His Party. Tariff Taxation a Violation of the Spirit of the Con stitution. Paternalism Has No Place in the Creed of Dem ocracy. To Hon. William L. Wilson and Others, Committee, Etc.— Gentlemen: ln responding to your formal notification of my nomination to the presidency by the national Democracy, I hope I may be permitted to say at the outset that continued reflection and observation hove confirmed me in my adherence to the opinions which 1 have heretofore plainly and publicly declared touching the questions involved in the canvass. This is a time, above all others, when these questions should be considered in the light afforded by a sober apprehen sion of the -principles upon which our government is based, ami a clear under standing of the relation it bears to the people for whose benefit it was created. \Ve shall thus be supplied with a test by which the value of any proposition relating to the maintenance and admin istration of our government can be as certained, and by wliich the justice and honesty of every political question can be judged. If doctrines or theories are presented which do not satisfy this lest, loyal Americanism must pronounce them false and mischievous. The protection of the people in the exclusive use and enjoyment of their property and earnings concede*— con stitutes the especial purpose and mis sion of our free government. . This de sign is so interwoven with the structure Of our plan of rule that failure to pro tect the citizen in such use and enjoy ment, or their unjustifiable diminution by the government itself, is a betrayal of the people's trust.' '//',' ". "'''*"."• —We have, however, undertaken to build a great nation upon a plan espe cially our own. To maintain it and to furnish through its agency the means for the accomplishment of national ob jects, the American people are willing through federal taxation to surrender a part of their earnings and . income. Tariff legislation presents a familiar form of federal taxation. Such legis lation results as surely in a tax upon the daily life of our people as the trib ute paid directly into the hand of the tax gatherer. We feel the burden of these tariff taxes too palpably to be persuaded by any sophistry that they do not exist, or arc paid by foreigiiners. Such taxes, representing a diminution of the property, of the people, are only justifiable when laid and collected for the purpose of maintaining our gov nient and furnishing the means for the accomplishment of its legitimate pur poses and functions. This is taxation under the operation of a tariff for reve nue. It accords with the professions of American free institutions, and its jus tice and honesty "answer the test sup plied by a correct appieciatiou of the principles upon which these institu tions rest. The theory of tariff legislation mani festly enjoins strict economy in public expenditures and their limitation to legitimate uses, inasmuch as it exhibits as absolute extortion any exaction, by way of taxation, from the substance of the people, beyond the necessities of a careful and proper administration of government. PROTECTIVE TARIFF. It Is Contrary to the Spirit of the Constitution. Opposed to this theory the dogma is „ow boldly presented that tariff taxation is justifiable for the express purpose and intent of thereby'- promoting espe cial interests and enterprises. Such a proposition is so clearly contrary to the spirit of our constitution, and so directly encourages the disturbance by selfish ness and greed of patriotic sentiment, that its statement would rudely shock our people, if they had not been al ready insidiously allured from the safe landmarks of principle. Never has honest desire for national growth, patri otic devotion to country and sincere re gard for those who toil .been so betrayed to the support of a pernicious doctrine. In its behalf the plea that our infant industries should be fostered did serv ice until discredited by our stalwart growth; then followed the exigencies of a terrible war, whicli made our peo ple heedless of the Opportunities for ul terior schemes afforded by their willing md patriotic*, payment of unprecedented tribute; and now, after a long period of peace, when our overburdened country aien ask for relief and a restoration to i fuller enjoyment of their incomes and earnings, they are met by the claim that tariff taxation for - the sake of pro tection is an American system, tiie con tinuance of which is. necessary in order that high wages may be paid to work ingmen. and a home market be pro vided for our farm products. These pretense should. no longer de ceive. The truth is (hat such a system Is directly antagonized by every senti juentof justice and fairness of which Americans are pre-eminently proud. It !s also true that while our people defend themselves against the harder home life which such tariff taxation decrees, die workingman, suffering from the im portation and employment of pauper labor instigated by bis pnrfessed Mends md seeking security for Ills interests in Organized Co-operation, still waits for a Sivision of the advantages secured to Bis employer under cover of a generous solicitude lor his wages, while the farmer *^^-^*o :^^^l^!^^^f B '*^ ftT"^ 0^ 1 - ni * I ItpSy e^ ' liilWvC^ - 1 ii#^^£--**iw^|i* ft J^"^^^ I I *"* r~~=? 1) I JVl^^/ll \**"**' V /// / fr~ — t^y/l -^v /riffi tit* /—! kvvNt>s —^7// /AY llH^n^i o^^^ •*"~^/N Transplanting the Pauper Labor of Europe. Herald. is learning that the prices of his prod ucts are fixed, in foreign markets, where he suffers from a competition in vited and built up by the system he is asked to support. The struggle for unearned advantage at the doors of the government tramples on the rights of those who patiently rely upon assurances of American equality. Every governmental concession to clamorous favorites invites corruption in political affairs by encouraging the expenditure of money to debauch suf frage in support of a policy directly favorable to private and selfish gain. 'I his in the end must strangle patriot ism and weaken popular confidence in the rectitude of republican institu tions. ■HMBSMa Though the subject of tariff legisla tion involves a question of markets, it also involves a question of. moral". We cannot with impunity permit injustice to taint the spirit of. right and equity, which is the life of our republic; ami we shall fail to reach our national des tiny if greed and selfishness lead the way. _WcW* *_jffl'ißll"j""i iWTtt Recognizing these truths, the national Democracy. will seek, by the application of just and sound principles, to equalize to our people the blessings due them trom the goverement they support, to promote among our countrymen a closer community of interests, "cemented, by patriotism and national pride, and to point out a fair field where prosperous and diversified American enterprise may grow and thrive in the wholesome atmosphere of American industry, in genuity and intelligence. TARIFF REFORM. Democracy Wages No War Against American Industries. Tariff reform is still our purpose. Though we oppose the theory that tariff laws may be passed having for their ob ject the granting of discriminating and unfair governmental aid to private ventures, we wage no exterminating war against any American interests. We "believe a readjustment can be ac complished, in accordance with the principles we profess, without disaster or demolition. We believe that the ad vantages of freer raw materials should be accorded to our manufacturers, and we contemplate a fair and careful dis tribution of necessary tariff burdens, rather than the precipitation of free trade. We anticipate with calmness the mis representation of motives and purposes, instigated by a selfishness which seeks to hold in unrelenting grasp its unfair advantage under present tariff • laws. We will rely upon the intelligence of our fellow countrymen to reject the charge that a party comprising a major ity of our people is planning the de struction or injury of American inter ests, and we know they cannot be frightened by the spectre of impossible free trade. The administration and management of our government depends upon popu lar will. Federal power is the instru ment of that will— not its master. Therefore the attempt of the opponents of Democracy to interfere with and con trol the suffrage of the states through federal agencies develops a design, which no explanation can mitigate, to reverse the fundamental and safe, re lations between the people and their government. Such an attempt cannot fail to be regarded by thoughtful men as proof of a bold determination to se cure the ascendancy of a discredited party in reckless disregard "of-" a free /•expression of the popular will. .To re sist such a scheme ' is an impulse of Democracy.. At all times'- and iii all places we trust the people. As against a disposition to force the way to federal power, we present to them as our claim to their confidence and support a steady championship of their rights. THE CURRENCY. People Entitled to Sound and Honest Money. , The people are entitled to sound and honest money, abundantly sufficient in volume to supply their business needs. But whatever may be the form of the people's currency, national or state— whether gold, silver or paper— it should be so regulated and guarded by govern mental action, or by wise and careful laws, that no one can be deluded as to the certainly and stability of its value. Every. dollar put into the hands of the people should be of tha same intrinsic value or purchasing power. With this condition absolutely guaranteed, both . gold and silver can be safely utilized upon_ec-ual terms in the adjustment of our currency. In dealing with this subject no selfish scheme should be allowed to intervene, and no doubtful experiments should be attempted. The wants of our pe*sple, arising" from the deficiency or. imperfect distribution of money. cireuuttfon, ought to be 'fully and honestly recognized and efjjcieptly remedied, "it should, how eVfef, be constantly remembered thai: the inconvenience or loss- that might Continued on fourth rage.

Owing to Our Laws They Will Be Built in English or Scotch Ship Yards. Philadelphia, Sept. 26.— The Inter national Navigation company intends in a short time" to award contracts to Eng lish builders for two new steel twin screw steamships, to be used in the trade between Philadelphia and Liver pool and Antwerp. They will prob ably be called Southwark and Kensington, after the Philadel phia localities of both of those names, and will each be of 8.000 tons carrying capacity and constructed of steel throughout. The motive power will consist of triple expansion engines of the most approved type, and the steam will be supplied "from Scotch boilers. It is probable that the Thomp sons, on the Clyde, will secure the con tracts. This firm built the City Paris and the City 'of New York, and the "Lairds built the steamship Friesland and other vessels of the Red Star line. The vessels are designed for general carrying trade, and will net carry saloon passengers but will be fitted up for immigrants. "_ ATE OF THE ICE. An Undertaker's Carelessness Causes an Epidemic of Diphthe ria. Washington, Sept. 26.— The police and health officers of the district are en gaged in . investigating the truth et a horrible story told of a colored under taker, Ernest Edwards, whose reported recklessness has caused the death of a number of persons from diphtheria. The story goes that on July 6 last a col ored girl named Maud Myers died of diphtheria. Edwards was employed, and prepared the body for burial. Oil the Bth, the day of the funeral, Edwards removed the body from the icebox, and put it in the casket. He took the ice box, containing the ice and water, out into the court, and emptied it out on ground. Three colored children resid ing in the court, Charjes Burk, Igna tius Burk and Mary F. Davis, ate of the ice. On July 16 the Burk. and Davis children wefe stricken with diphtheria, and died in a few hours. ..- " Since the date of Maud Myers' burial thirty-two cases of diphtheria have oc curred, in St. Mary's court, fifteen of whicn have proved fatal. They are traceable, it is said, to the ice throvfjj into the. court by Edwards, Acfeter nillTation has been eTpre'lseS by the au thorities to prosecute Edwards for per jury and manslaughter, if he is arrested, which, up to the present time, he has escaped. GRESPO IS GAINING. Venezuelan Revolutionists Appear tf^Be Getting . the Upper Hand. Government Emissaries Tell a Different Story, How- 4 ever. Nearly All the Chief Cities in the Hands of the Cres pists. The Present Government Evi dently About Ready to Fall. f New Yokk, Sept. 20. —The Red "D" line steamer Caracas, from La Guayra and Puerto Cabello, Venezuela, arrived' at her dock in Brooklyn this afternoon. On her trip to La Guayra and Puerto Cabello she found the United States war vessels Chicago and Kearsaree there, and was glad to see the Concord tiding at anchor in the harbor at Puerto Ca bello. '■-":"; While the Caracas was at the latter port a body of United States marines was sent on;, board from the Concord and remained on board as long as she was in port. Puerto Cabello is in pos session of the insurgents or Crespists, and the marines were placed on . board the steamer as a matter of precaution. No indignities were offered, to the steamship people by the insurgents, but it was thought best to guard against any emergency. While the Caracas was in the harbor of La Guayra no attempt was made by the Venezuelan govern ment officials to molest the people on board or interfere in any way with the steamer. No marines were placed on board here. Peraza, the Venezuelan minister to this country, was at the dock to meet the Caracas -at Brooklyn. On board were his wife and son. The son had been entrusted with a mission from Tiie .Venezuelan Government to his father, the ''-minister. This mis sion, his- brother Carlos said, was in re lation to the South Portland, which sailed from' Trinidad with arms and munitions of war for the revolutionists of Venezuela- it is: said. The minister declined to disclose what the instruc tions were that he. has received from Caracas, He said lie "Wished first to have a conference with his son before making public the intention of his gov ernments ■•'. ; ; . ' Carlos LJalot, the minister's son, after having had a talk with his brother Nic amor, said the hews from Caracas was very encouraging 'for the government. He said Gen. D. Monagas' had left Cu racoa for Caracas to take 'command of the army. While at Curacoa lie received numerous telegrams from the govern ment generals calling him to take com mand. He has an army of 5,500, and when the steamer left was preparing to march for Puerto where Crespo, the insurgent chief,, is in command. Gens. Castro and Ferraro are in posses sion of Maricaipo. and Gen. Purlido. a relative of the president, is at Caracas with 7,000 men. .; Mr. Balot said it was reported that. Crespo and Guerera, two of the chief revolutionists.- had a quarrel at Puerto Cabello, which produced . .A State of Anarchy among the insurgents. It is said that Crespo had challenged Guerrera to a duel. The result of the Quarrel was nat known when the steamer sailed. The government.according to Mr.Balot. has declared Puerto Cabello in a state of blockade, and has ordered all vessels to "enter merchandise at La Guayra. How the olockade will be enforced is not made clear, as the government has no navy. ' ■ The friends of the revolutionists give entirely different pictures of the state of things in Venezuela. Senor Lopezll, a Venezuelan in this city, met several friends who came on . the Caracas. He said the present government of his country was tottering on its last legs, and would shortly collapse entirely. It was making a few last struggles before being completely overcome. At the present time the government was cen tered in the' capital, Caracas. Outside of that city the governmeut was not recognized. The people throughout the different states are in favor of a new form of government, aud in a few weeks the present guerrilla warfare will close by the downfall of the few men strug gling for their government positions. -.; The authority of the government,. he said, was taken away in capturing the sources of the government revenue. Puerto Cabello. Maricaibo and other places where customs receipts are taken are now in the hands of the insurgents, The Only Place Lett being La Guayra. ; Crespo. he said; oc cupies Valencia and La Guayra with. 7,000 men and is slowly encircling Cara cas and cutting off all supplies, -He ; could inarch on the city and capture.it, but that would result in much blood shed, which he is anxious to avoid. ; Be did not believe in the reported quarreL of Crespo and Guerrera. Mr. Lopez received information that a battle occurred uear Barrjuismento a short time before the Caracas sailed. The engagement was between- the revolutionists under Gen. Colino, with 2,200 men, and a strong force of govern-;, ment .soldiers. The battle lasted; Tor several hours and ended in a victory for Colino. ■- .*■ •:■ The officers of the steamer Caracas said there can be no doubt but that the revolutionists are steadily gaining and that the present government cannot last much longer. The first officer said that the insurgents were closing around La Guayra and Caracas. Shortly before the steamer sailed 300 rebels had taken possession of a small town near La Guayra and were not disturbed by the government troops. They said "that Puerto Cabello, which was "captured by - Crespo after a stubborn fight, looked as if a destructive storm had passed over it. The fighting must have been ter rible. . ■ '*"_• "S*?-*" AN ALUMINUM CONTENTION. An Important Suit On in Cincin nati. JBBBHWBb Cincinnati.

Loxnox, Sept. 2G.— The mystery re garding the fate of Marion Sharpe, the Gaiety actress who died on Tuesday last in the house of Woodbury Heron, an army surgeon, is increasing, and there .is a growing opinion .'that she was poi soned by Dr. Woodbury Heron, the army surgeon, who committed . suicide in the hotel on Craven street Sunday. Miss Sharpe, who was known as Ruby .Russell, had appeared in the Lyric and Drury Lane theaters, and was a favorite ; with theater-goers. Dr. Heron was deeply impressed by her, and induced her to leave the stage and live with him. - ■■-■■■ Dr. Heron had been stationed for some time in Jamaica, where his .wife died in 1891 under suspicious circum stances. He made the acquaintance of Miss Sharpe while waiting orders in London, and when he was sent to Gam bria, in Africa, he took her with him. They returned from Gambria on Sept. 3. Soon after coming back it appears that they quarreled. Miss Siiarpe was seized with sudden illness on Tuesday and died soon after. She was ; y . ;* '■' Unconscious Before Death, and a doctor who was called in was un able to relieve her. The cause of death not being apparent, notice was given to the .- authorities and an inquest was held. Dr. Heron was called as a wit ness and testified Saturday that the po lice had made inquiries about him and had ascertained some of his career ( in Jamaica. He was asked in regard to the death of his wife in Jamaica, and admitted that an inquest had been held upon her remains., ; Dr. Heron would have been called upon for additional explanations later on in the proceedings, and .lie appears to have concluded 'upon suicide. , He went to the hotel on Craven street : im mediately after the inquest, and there engaged a bedroom. ... On Sunday he: "was found dead in his room, his throat ■ terribly gashed. : He left a statement ; letter, "which, it is thought, will throw light upon the death of Miss Sharpe, if hot ""V upon • * other ,/ m titters.] While tlje death of Dr. Heron removes any proba ble cause for the, .-* motive of Miss Sharpe's fate," the authorities are active ly engaged in finding all they can about Dr. Heron in .-'order*. to clear-up. what ever mystery may remain;. - v JJ_U9j£&B RECOGNIZING,?

',' If the Republican party is hot clearly responsible for the . non-enforcement of the state grain laws that has permitted all these evils, is there any man in tho state.- so blindly partisan as to believe that the Pioneer Press would, day after day, devote from seven to nine columns of space to denying and : explaining the charges' that have been made.-" : : - - Is there a sane man within the border's of the state who believes that the Min neapolis Journal and its contemporary,*) the Tribune, would shout themselves' hoarse crying such choice phrases as. ."They are liars," "Forgers and black mailers," "Political corruptionists," and so on.

Were there no other proof, the posi tion taken by the Republican* organs and committees on this question would be conclusive evidence that the party is not only ,to blame for the wrongs done in the past, but.'has now become a bold' defender of the wheat ring. robbers.

Many of the Republicans of j the state are objecting to the role in ' which the party is placed and do not-' hesitate to say so. One of these, in speaking of the matter yesterday, said: "Will Defeat the Party. ••Wheat ring! Of course there is a wheat ring, and there always lias been, and every wheat-grower knows it.. I look for defeat because of it. too. You will remember the campaign of six years ago, when the Republican party came so near defeat? Well, in that campaign we were the defenders of the millers' ring, and tried to cry down" and deny what all knew to be true. lam a Republican, but I know of no obligation that compels me to vote " for a party the leaders of which insist upon making my vote an indorsement of a great public crime. Were the party leaders honest enough to insist that the organization be purged of the wrong doers I would not take this view of the situation, but I shall not vote to exon erate men who are proven to be worse than bandits. I consider that I can be a good Republican and vote against my party on such an issue." But the Republican farmers of the state do not believe that the Republican leaders are telling the truth when they defend the wheat ring. They know from experience what is wrong, and three days ago the Republicans of the Forty-third legislative district said so, as the following special which appeared in the Pioneer Press shows: MoNTEVinio, Minn., Special, Sept. 23.— The Republican legislative conven tion for the Forty-third district nom inated E. L. Young. J. F. Jacobson and F. E. Bentley for representatives. Resolutions were adopted favoring the re-election of -C. K. Davis as United States senator, also recommending such legislation as will enable any individual to buy and ship grain at any station without interference from any individ ual or corporation. These Independent Republic's of Swift ,Lac Qui Parle and Chippewa are on the wrong tack. They, should hive denied that the farmer has not a free market. According to the Republican organs of these cities they are "liars." "blackmailers," and a whole lot of other bad words such as are to be" found in the Pioneer, Journal and Tribune. The organs of.the "combine" are de voting themselves to the character of C. C. Wolcott these days. The charac ter of ' Wolcott has nothing to do with the case. y Mr. Pillsbury stands ... self convicted. The evidence against him is all in his own handwriting, and when any one starts out to defend him tliey must have something better than A Personal Attack on some other man. Mr..Wolcott is only one of many men who have put in evi dence on this subject. The Chicago Herald found one, a resident of Minne apolis, to whom the Minneapolis papers f.t can not take exception.
