Mr. McKinley Is Also Put on
the Gridiron—Minneap
olis News.
The Democratic rally at the People's
theater last night was a success in every
way. There wero several thousand
people present, and the speakers of the
evening were appiafhled throughout.
Mr. Shearman travo his audience some
sound sense, and there was not n man
present but received it as gospel. Al
I'aris officiated as chairman of the meet
ing. L. B. Titian, Demociatic candi
date for mayor, was the first
speaker of the evening. He made
a hit with the audience, and
when lie took his seat after a brief dis
course it was noisily demonstrated that
he was a prime favorite.
Mr. Erickson, candidate for congress,
in whose behalf Mr. Shearman came
ciear from New York, also made a
brief speech and was accorded a hearty
Mr. Shearman got down to plain facts
as soon as he svas introduced, and below
is given a brief synopsis of what he
Shearman's Logic.
"I have come 1,308 miles for the sake
of making one address in behalf of my
friend, Mr. Erk'kson. There aie very
few men in whose political career 1
take so much interest. He stands tor
the cause of humanity and therefore it
is not for personal Aggrandizement that
he is your candidate for conitress, but
for the sake of a great cause which he
hns humbly and faithfully served.
"In referring to Mr. Reed's speech
made here recently, 1 find that he was
extremely discreet aud cautious, but he
differ* in six ideas from any other per
son. With flattering word* he deliv
ered an address to the people, but I
must say that i lament the lack of wis
dom of these people in accepting all that
he said when he made his speech here.
1 cannot say, however, that tiiey did
accept his theories; I am sure all did
not. Mr. McKmley has the gift of an
orator. He has delivered 800 orations
on George Washington, and I admire
him for his genius of memorizing rath
er than his rhetorical genius.
"Reed said that the prosperity of the
last thirty years had been so constant
and unremitting that we thought it was
something that came to U3on account of
the climate. He attacks Cleveland for
not going to the war because he was a
stout man. He seems to forget that he
himself did not go to the war, aud that
h«* is also stout. He tells you that
under the tariff law of '90 t dur
ing the two years and a half to '92,
there was not a factory that was
not running to its fullest capacity.
There were absolutely a thousand
that were not running. Manufactories
stopped under this law, and in the city
of San Francisco there were nearly 7.000
dwellings to let. or the tenauts were let
o J because they had not the money
with which to pay their rents. It
seemed as if paralysis had struck the
whole city. After October of
"JO, and during all the year
that followed it, hundreds of thou
sands of factories stopped. There
were 12,000 bankruptcies in twelve
m ontha beginning the Ist of October of
'90 to the Ist of October of '91, entirely
excluding the railroads aud similar
large institutions, being the. largest rec
ori of the kind ever mad« in American
history. .And yet Reed says that there
was not a workingman in the United
States who could not get work, and
there were no tramps. All those who
wanted to get work, he says.couid get it
to do.
Idle Tien Everywhere.
"Now I tell you there were thousands
of idle men during the winter of 'DO and
'91. Wages were nowhere raised duiing
that period, and they were, on the other
hand, very generally cut. down. Sta
tistics have been publishing those facts
over and over again, and they cannot be
denied. Let me meet Mr. Reed and Maj.
McKinley upon the questions of the hard
times in 1893 and following, lam per
fectly willing to admit that we had a
panic, 1 admit that wages of the worki
men were generally cut down. My own
personal losses exceeded all that 1 ever
suffered in all my life. The question,
however, is not how great the damage
was, but who is responsible and what
is responsible. When tv is panicbeean,
during all that period what laws
were in force? Why, the McKinley
law. The tariff—the McKinley tar
iff. When the panic broke out
in '93, during thi mouths of
June, July and August, at every port in
the United States there was a Repub
lican collector. The Republicans were
administering their own laws. We
wero under Republican laws and they
were responsible for the panic. As far
as the laws, and as far as the adminis
tration of them went we.were living
under this tariff law to the entire satis
faction of McKinley when the panic
came on.
Cleveland's Pistol.
"Mr. Reed says a pistol was held at
the law, and how cau you expect the
law to work well when a pistol is held
at its head. Now when was this pistol
presented? When Mr. Cleveland was
elected. That's the date of the holding
ot th« pistol to the head of the law, and,
accordingly, Mr. McKiuley refers to
that date as the date when every one be
came uncertain and everything was
dark. Now what are the ~facts?
1 say that the period from election day
in '(J2 clear through to the following
March was one of the greatest in the
Doint of prosperity for the manufactur
er than any which had been known
during the period of the previous three
or Gve years. Within one week after
the election of Mr. Cieveland most of
the mills of Massachusetts raised their
wages 10 per cent. That was what
came of the pointing the pistol at the
head ot an obnoxious law.
"When Mr. Foster left his office of
treasurer his statement showed there
was a deficit of $40,000,000; ttiat is pay
ments to that amount were postponed.
The creditors were put off and every
thing was put over to the next adminis
tration. Foster said that he was never
so satisfied in all his life as in the com
ing of a new administration. Secretary
Carlisle said as little as possible about
it. Bankers at once took the alarm.
They saw that Mr. Foster's keeping a
hundred million dollar reserve—which
should have been kept—was mere farce,
and a sort of cold sliiver went through
the community to see what risks they
had been running under the administra
tion of Mr. Harrison.
The bankers were unanimous that the
cause of the panic was the Sherman law
silver-puichasiug clause, the law com
pelling the treasurer of the United
States to buy 4,500,000 ounces every
month, whether the government had
the money to pay Us creditors or not.
The result was that thesloo,ooo,ooo gold
reserve fund had to stand as security
for more than $800,000,000, and 54.000,000
ounces of silver being added to it every
year. Forty million dollars of the re
serve iuud was postponed iv payment
so that in fact $60,000,000 in gold was to
111 eet$800,000,001) to Ssr>O.ot>O,o9CJ liabili
ties. Then they said we must stand on
the silver basis. Now, who passed that
Sherman silver law? The Republicans,
of course. Not a single Democrat voted
for it. Not one. lien. Harrison made
it the ground for reproach to the Dem
ocrats for nut voting for it, bat the Re
publicans have said nothing since that
time. The silver purchasing law was
ojioiher piece of this precious protec
Mr. Shearman then dwelt on the
origin of the silver bill and Us purchas
ing clause, and Its relation \6 (lie Mc-
Kiuley law. He referred to Mr. £<ied's
statement that it was the uncertainty of
what the democrats would do in the
matter of a tariff bill that caused the
panic. It was the uncertainty of what
the Wilson bill would contain. As a
matter of fact no one knew that the
Wilson bill was contemplated, and
therefore it wa3 strange that this bill
could have any effect on the people and
business of the country. To illustrate
his point he told a story of a wolf and a
lamb which brought down the bouse.
"In referring to the tariff again,'' he
said, "I admit that you should approach
a decision with a great deal ot care, but
when you have formed your decision
do not heein putting it in operation on
the Installment plan. For instance, if
you were to have your leg cut, it
would never do to cut a little off every
day. It must be done all at once, else
you 'Aill suffer too much pain.
What would you say to a dent
ist extracting your teeth 0:1 the
installment plan? The true way
of mending a tariff is to have
a responsible, listen to counsel behind
closed doors and then put it into oper
ation at once. You will notice that as
soon as the Sherman law was repealed
the panic stopped. Now, for instance,
when the ways and means committee
began to tinker with the tariff the peo
ple of the country became uncertain
and unsettled. But when the committee
made its report, then business be can to
revive, confidence was restored and the
mills of the country commenced 1 uuning
at full speed."
When Mr. Shearman concluded h"
speech the house rang with applause.
Story of Her Shame and Mys-
terious Death.
Yesterday morning the Willson case
was resumed after a four days' inter
mission, and Jack, the hairdresser, was
put on the stand to resume the cross
examination. Yrn»ile his statements
were not contradictory to any cpeciai
degree. Willson was afflicted with a
very treacherous memory, and behind
that infirmity took frequent refuge.
Nellie Shepley was calleu to the stand
in rebuttal testimony. She knew Will
son as "Jaok the hairdresser." A year
ago ast summer she was in the confec
tionery business, she said, but when'
pressed frankly admitted that it was a
nouse of ill fame. Wilson had told her
during a conversation tiiat if she should
ever get into trouble lie could help her
out cheaper than any other physician.
While others would charge $5Q iie
wouldn't charge over $15.
Eva Doyle followed. Bhe knew the
defendant two years ago. She was In
the confectionery line also, ana Jack
hud then told her he had studied to be a
physician and had given her some pow
ders. He had told her point-blank that
lie could heip her out of serious trouble.
Cora Lewis, resplendent iv sealskin,
jewels, silks and feathers, took the
stand. She corroborated the statements
made by Miss Doyle, and when asked if
she was in the candy business also, an
swered, with a smile: "Yes." She had
heard Wilson say time and time again
that he was a physician and could pro
duce abortions.
William Aekerman was called. Be
was at Airs. Knapp's the night of May
29. VVihson cairn* about 10 o'clock.
Ackennan was in Tressie's bedroom
talking when he came, but left the
room. VVlllson went in. While in the
sitting room he overheard Tressie say to
WiUsoQ that she didn't know what was
the matter with her and Willson had re
plied that he would have to examine
The trump card of the prosecution
was played in the calling of a Mrs.
Northby, who lives at 719 Washington
avenue north. Mrs. Northby, who ap
peared somewhat uneasy on the stand,
told in her broken English how one aft
ernoon she had seen through the win
dow which opened into the bedroom in
which she knew Miss Fetttrly was sick
a man with a blue apron on, and with his
shirt sleeves rolled up. There was also
a woman in the room, who passed and
repassed before the window. She
could not see the person on the bed,
but she did see the man, and she was
satisfied that Willson was the one. He
had in his hand something which looked
bright like silver. In her cross-exam
ination Mrs. Northby hesitated about
swearing positively that Willson was the
man, but when asked point blank if she
was sure he was the man, replied that
she thought he was.
She was veiy deliberate about her
answers, and was evidently impressed
with the idea that she was doing some
thing about which she must be ex
tremely careful. She said she had seen
Willson before on the potch and also
knew that many men had gone to the
house at different times.
It was now 5 o'clock, and the court on
hearing that there were three more wit
nesses for the rebuttal adjourned the
court until a o'clock today, especially
cautioning the jury to be prompt.

Chicago, Oct. 31.—"1 have just been

Kwan, aud it is as perfect as ever. Not
only that, but the road affords ever.,
facility for the passage of troops in win

Mr. Walker has been stationed in
North Chiua by the Euelisu government
for the last nine years, and passed
through Chicago today on his way to
London to make his report. Rev. John
K. Kobson, a missionary from Tienkin,
accompanied him. They left Pekiu
about a month ago. Speaking of the
war, Mr. Walker said:
"Japan was obhaed to engage in war
fare in order to pie enl a repetition of
the revolution of IS7I in her own do
main. For years she lias been prepar
ing herself. Not only that, but she has
carefully laid out her campaign in
China. For over a year draughtsmen
and photographers have traversed every
part ot China, until the tomography of
the country is better known today in
Tokio than iv Pekin. The Japanese
commanders know that the correspond
ents make a mistake when they say that
winter will close the campaign. I have
been over the road at Moukden at all
seasons of the year. It is impassable
only in fall and spriuir. Iv winter it is
in perfect condition. If the Japanese
can cross the mountains before cold
weather and capture Moukden, which
ia the key to the whole situation, the
conquest is theirs. The 500 miles of
good road from Morfkden to the great
wall at Shan Kwau can be covered
within a mouth."

| sicians Criticised—They
Yalta, Oct. 31.—The czar suffers fits
of suffocation. Today lie was uncon
scious for several hours. The day was
Warm and the sky cloudless. Early
this morning his majesty tried to read
state dispatches, but he'was too weak.
During his violent tits of coughing par
ticles of the lung were brought away.
The bulletin issued Tuesday night
was not public here until this morning.
It caused a feeling of intense appre
hension. It was noticed that today no
one of the doctors In attendance on the
czar was seen, though usually they are
observed walking in the streets daily.
Everybody coining from Liva
dia is assailed with questions,
but nobody is able to give much news.
Dr. Zaccharin is everywhere blamed
for his wrong diagnosis and for allow
ing the disease to go so far beforo tak
ing his majesty to a warmer climate.
It is alleged that there has been a
serious quarrel between Prof. Leyden
and Dr. Zacchaiin, tiie former reproach
ing his colleague witn aggravat-!
me the czar's illness by his brutal frank- I
ness. Dr. Zaccharin, it is said, retorted
angrily, and was only prevented from
leaving Livadia by the interference of
Gen. Tcheievin, who threatened to
'forcibly detain him.
Profs. Wilschowski and Wyodzew
have been summoned to Livadia from
St. Petersburg.
It is reported that the Prince and
Princess of Wales are coming to Liva
dia at the special request of the czar.
Grand Duke Alexis Michaelovitch,
cousin of th«* czar, who was disgraced
and banished to the Caucasus several
years ago, arrived here recently,
wishing to see the czar and ask
his pardon before he died. The czar
declined to see him, and the grand duke
departed, after seeing his other rel
atives. The newspapers have been I
prohibited from mentioning the visit!
until the grand duke's father shall have
rdered the censor to allow the fßct to
be published. The czar's treatment by
his physicians is unchanged, lie takes
digitalis and aconite, ana drinks a great
deal of milk.
With Hobenlobe's Appointment as
London, Oct. 31.—The correspondent <
of the Standard at Berlin telegraphs ;
that he believes that the statement that!
Dr. Miquel has been appointed imperial j
vice chancellor is unfounded. The ap-!
pointmeut of Yon Bieberstein, Imperial
foreign minister, to a position without j
portfolio in the Prussian ministry in* !
sures the continuance of Caprivi's com- '
mercial treaty policy.
A dispatch'from Koine to the Stand
ard says that the appointment of Prince
yon Hohenlohe as imperial German
chancellor is not favored by the Vat
ican, he being an adversary ol papal in
fallibility and adverse to the pope's in
terference in politics.

just and unnecessary retaliation against
the duties imposed by the United States
