A fair-sized .audience that, either from
the cold or a, lack of interest, rap".dly
decreased in size as the advanced,
greeted th.. speakers, at ise sound money
meeting last ni^it. heici in the Audito
rium. A bunch of flaming yel'.mv chry-

decoration and a badge. Palms-">and flags

He said* that it was 'a.goo-j's.'ifn' to see
Democrats and Kepublica:is,;,aut together,
a good sign for the welfare of the coun
try. "This is*a*roa--jiartioan'meeting,". he
said.. "The Business Men's tfound Money
club has not beeii organized to sntextere
■with local politics. It was. orsjanv/ed in
St. Paul, as it was organised in Chi>ogo,
as a protest against the debasement of
currency. (Applause.) It" at the end of
the meeting, after .ran- 1 have heard tht>
speakers who are here to addrl^ you, you
believe Mr. Bryan a -afer man to vote
lor than the noninse of tho Republican
party, why vote for him. lf r on 'he other
hand, you believe that McKlnloy is the
man to carry the country safely through
its present crisis, vc»e for William Mc-
Kinley. The present campaign is tre of
, the best that hasever'Dee'n There
has been les£> mud sliuging^ Men have
i been willing to listen to both sides, xhere
is no reason why men who go to the polls
tomorrow should not vote as their convic
tions dictate. In hot presidential cam
paigns of the past,., men have too. often
stuffed cotton in their ears. Tarn giad to
know that there has,beeji little of that
sort of thing during this campaign.
"President Cleveland once said that the
man most interested in the sound money
question was- the workingman. is of
more importance to him than to any other
class that the dollar he toils for be an
honest dollar. The speakers ;vho will ad
dress you tonight are all good 'Democrats,
and have always been :;oo(l democrats.
But a man Is not a traitor when he re
fuses to follow ids party tG perdition.
Both men tonight have the courag-3 of
righteous convictions they refuse
to support a party that nas broken away
from old-time Democratic 'inos. Gentle
men, I take great pleasure In introducing
to you this evening, Hon. •">. W. Lawler.
Mr. Lawler's name was greeted with
loud and prolonged cheers, and it was
some seconds before he made any attempt
to speak.
Mr. Lawler said:
11 was an appropriate feature. to com
mence the proceedings of the ' evening
with the stirring melody of,»th£ national
anthem. A meeting called under these
auspices could have no more appropriate
commencement. You have come here to
night to listen to one speaker born in
the Southern clime; on the other side of
Mason and Dixon's Jqie.,. reared in th«
principles of the Democratic party, and
you have come to listen to another, the
presiding chairman of this convention,
also a Democrat of Democrats. Jn the
days of the sixties the seitle.men to
whom I refer were of different convic
tions, but the one from Illinois and tne
one from. Wisconsin each had the courage
and manhood to put a musket upun his
shoulder and to test the sincerity of his
conviction at the risk and the' apparent
sacrifice of his life. They were true to
their convictions then. They arc true
to their convictions tonight, when, before
this audience, representing the con
science, the political morality of Ram
sey county, they arise to their feet and
salute a common flag and a common
country. The American people love sin
cerity and straightforwardness in poll
cal matters. They have little respect for
the political party or for tHat set of po
litical leaders who, in the hot stress of a
national canvass, skulk in their tents,
or attempt to-act the part at a trimmer
and dodger, and we, who were born in
the Democratic party, who learned its
•principles and drew inspiration from the
minds of the great leaders of the North
western Democracy, we are here tonight,
on the very eve of a memorable ttlrn
paigh, to testify before our nelgiibfcra arri.
our friends who love us,, and whom we
love, that We are still true to the princi
ples of Jefferson, of Tilden and of Cleve
It is not necessary to recount to this
audience the "Msfory of the Democratic
party of the No*tiiwest. The brightest
pages in the hirfttTTy of the his
tory of the American republic are
those which record the history of that
great political organization fram JSGO to
1896. From the m«sn who, in' the days
of the sixties had the manhood and the
honesty to-Vote for Stephen A.. Douglas
and bring about the election of Abraham
L.incolon, down to the men who, vi 1893,
had the modesty and the Democracy to
vote for John M. Palmer and bring about
the election of William McKinley. No
need to recotrnf the old flays in Wisconsin
and Illinois when men like your chair
man, representing the brain an* brawn
of those two great commonwealths, men
like the Sibleys, like Flandrau, like Ed
mund Rice, and like Robert A. Smith,
led it. Against such men and against
their records, put the men who are today
in control of the machine in- Minnesota,
and of the states, we are not afraid of
a comparison. — ■
We remember the days when in a fight
for what our Democratic predecessors
believed to be the cardinal principles
ef Democracy and patriotism, we were
in a hopeless minority, year after year,
in presidential campaign af-teT presiden
tial campaign, every four years, they
came to their • convictions and, imbued
with a principle of manly morality, put
their best men in the place of leadership.
They had leaders like Douglas, Horatio
Seymour, George MedeHand and Tilden,
and In 1884 and 1892 they put in the ex
ecutive chair at Washington the greatest
Democrat who filled it since the day of
Andrew Jackson. -
In 1896, more than a million of the Dem
ocratic party voted for the candidate
whom the real Democracy had nominated
in opposition to the so-called regular can
didate. The Democrats of the old school
were opposed to free silver, not only be
cause it was repudiation, not merely be
cause it was an attempt on the part of
the government of the United States to
pay 100 cents with a 50-cent dollar; not
merely because it would cut in two the
savings of the laborer;-not merely be
cause it would put us on a level with
Mexico and China, but because the Dem
ocratic party of the old school saw that
ehe principle of free silver was the prin
ciple of Populism, to which the Demo
cratic party was always opposed.
Has the situation changed? Have the
men who obtained control of that organi
zation four ye^rs ago. and who still main
tain it, have they abated a jot of that
platform of political heresies, which the
real Democrats or this land spurned four
years ago? Have these men ' recanted
their errors? The leader of the 'regular'
Democratic party demanded a distinct
and definite indorsement for the purpose
of pleasing his Populist allies of 1896
Many of the Democrats who were on
posed to that leader four years ago are
with him. They say that although he
means to do harm, they say that he will

have a right to say that while I admire

same heresies, and will strangle them to
the death, if God will permit us to do so,
in this year, as we did four years ago.

Last spring F. M. Conners and Adolnhe

and see that they took steps to be union

whom he pleased—union or non-union.

This is not a meeting for the purpose

that when the time will come, for the re
organization and the regeneration of the
old time Democracy, we will have noth
ing to blush for, who have stood always
for the old time principles of our party?
It makes no difference whether that time
will come in four years or in forty years.

ed, forty years and go to victory under the
leadership of a Democrat like Grover"
Cleveland than to win victory tomorrow

Mr. Lawler was cheered loudly at the
conclusion of his. address.
Out of compliment to \V. E. Poeison, of
Chicago, who is a Southerner by birth,
the chairman suggested that the band
play "Dixie." In spite of the cold, the
old war melody aroused prolonged
cheers. Mr. Poeison devoted most of his
speech to the currency question, the re
mainder of it being assertions of Brya.Vs
Populism. He said:
Mr. Chairman and citizens of St. Paul:
The business men of Chicago send the
business men of St. Paul greeting. Fo^r
years ago the business men of Chicago
formed an organization for the purpose.
of influencing the election of that year.
This year they have continued that as
sociation for the same purpose, and we
hope with the same - result. (Applause.)",
That association is composed irrespect
ive of party, the wealth, the talent, and
the patriotism of that city. Ani as you
have requested them to send a represenc
atiev to speak to you on the question of
this hour, I feel highly honored by beiny
their choice. They have sent no im
perialist on. this mission. They are no
imperialists themselves. They are as
true to this country as the founders of
this • republic. We are Americans. . We
are not imperialists and we place our
Americanism as high as any in America.
I have always been a Democrat; and
because I take the position today that I
do noes not make me less a Damocr.it.
I am not a Replblican. have not joined
the Republican party, but because 1 have
no candidate today, I take, as an Ameri
can citizen, the privilege of indorsing
the candidate who stands nearest to the.
position that I hold in public affairs.
Party slavery is a curse. ! Were it rot for
party slavery we would not be in the
condition we are today. Another curse
is patronage of a party. Grovor Cleve
land was elected president of the United
States. Mr. Altgeld, of Illinois, at the
same time was elected governor of that
state. Alt&eld wanted to oerpeluate him
self as the leader of the Democratic oart
in that state. How could he do It? Only
through patronage. Mr. Altgeld went to
Grover Cleveland and wanted him to give i
him the patronage of that state. Mr. ;
Cleveland, being an American Democrat,
said no. The reason Gov. Altgreld turn- !
ed against President Cleveland. .It was
not a question of silver. It was not a
question of having the troops in the city
of Chicago. It was simply because Gov..
Altgeld could not get the jSatronage of
the state of Illinois to keep himself in
power in that state.
Now in 1893 the panic took place. The ;
Democratic party was - not- responsible
for that panic, but in the elections of 1894
they were blamed for it. and the con- I
gressional elections throughout Uiq
United States were against the Demo
; cratic party. In 1896 the leaders of the
Democratic party.. these leaders that I
have been talking to you about. Altgeld
; Daniels and THlman. and that class
fearing defeat in 189t>. they did not have"
the moral courage to come bfore the
people on a Democratic platform, with
a true Democratic candidate., They were
political cowards, but In order to be sura
: of. the election in ISfW. they made over
tures to a party foreign to Democracy,
the Populist party. The Populist party
cast over 1.0C0.000 : votes in 1892.. Gen
Weaver got over 1.000,0(i0 in 1392. In 1596
it was estimated that ■ the Populist vote
; in this country would be at least 1,"00,000.
These leaders sent overtures to them for
fusion. But the Populist leaders said
no. , "we - canont • fuse ? with- you on a
; Democratic platform." Populists are not :
Democrats. There is no sympathy what
: ever, between Populism and Democracy.
They are . entirely foreign to each ■ other.
Pure Democracy. means sound money ana
sound iinance. Pqpulism - means ;an . ir
redeemable currency and unbound iir.an
cml . system. In 189€ they made lot**'
ures to the PopiiHst paity "and were; ac
cepted on the condition that the:- Dc-rao
cratic partyin the city of Chicago should
adopt a Populist platform and - let the
Populists nut a Populist candJdate on
the ticket at the head of the ticket for
president. Marion Butler, one of the
leaders of the Populist party, said in re
srard to . the. Chicago platform that the
Democrats - were forced then to commit
grand larceny Tanfli !steal the People's
i;arty platform outright.
T. as a Democrat., would prefer to vote
as a Democrat, but there are times when
men should be. Americans first. Demo
crats afterwards. LI .shaU take the train
back to Chicago tonight to vote for Wil
liam McKinley and it will be the first
time in my life that I have voted for a
Republican candidate. If. -'■ however, the
time ever cornea-, when the Democratic
party goe3 back to old time Democratic
principles I will once more gladly work
against and vose.#.pafoist the Republican
Campaign Closed With Large Meet-
In« at.C. S. P. S. Hall.
About 300 attended the Democratic -tal
ly at C. S. P. S. hall, West Seventh
street and Western avenue last evening.
The meeting was a very enthusiastic one,
and the speakers of the evening were fre
quently applauded 3u?to£ iheir remarks.
Pierce Butler reviewed the entire Demo
cratic ticket from top to botton and
concluded by urging those present to
vote the straight Democratic ticket.
John L. Townley' spoke oi state issties
and discussed at length Gov. land's ad
ministration. Mr. -Townley sporfe of ihe
governor's enforcing the law taxing
railroad lands and quoted figures to
back his statements. Philip Martin
candidate for the legislature from the
Fifth ward, made a few remarks anJ
spoke in a general way of the c- tire
county ticket. Frank Fo»VI, canrtHa^e
for judge of probate, was next intro
duced and made a few remarks along
the same lines. During his remarks he
incidentally remarked:

"I am willing to take ray oafch, ' says
F. M. Connors, "that Mr. Rusk is the
only person in St, Paul who knows any

Is it in the nature of things' that or

Dr. Stone, candidate for congrass, ma.de
a few, remarks, dwelling mostly i n the
evils of trusts. When the doctor had
finished there were cries of Ives. and
Senator John H. Ives responded with a

Van Hoven and James Hiekey. Mr.
Kane spoke in part as follows:
"In view of the fact that the cam
paign is at an end and I have appoint
ments to speak in several other parts of
.'-c city I know you will admit that
there is some substance in my excusa
in not making any extended speech.
"There is"now little tp be done In this
campaign; perhaps nothing; for you
have all had time to make up you;- minds
how you are going to vote. It occurred
to me as I stepped into this hail, now
ever, what a change has come to thi.-:
country the last fifty years. 1 was
forced to reflect and my mind w?nt back
through history to the time when tht
stamp of slavery was on the brow of the
colored man. Then the colored man had
no chance to show his valor, his rian
hood, his uprightness, except. as .v'-ance
happened in the small aqffairs of U£i.
"During our last war you were given
a chance to show your true worth to
the whole world. There waa a moment
when our Stars and Stripes were in dan
ger of falling in defeat and the colored
soldier rushed to the rescue. Nobly
the colored regiment acquitted them
selves in the Spanish war. All the
men on the rosters, true to their name,
were soldiers, and this country owes
them a debt of gratitude for services
"But the colored race has at all Mines
been a race oppressed. In this country
at the close of the Civil war the colored
man was given his freedom. Old Xha
Lincoln was at the head of the party that
advocated this freedom. Your fathers
and your mothers' fathers loved the Re
publican party, but what's in a nam ;?
What was, may not always be. T'i»
Republican party of today has no sem
blance to the Republican party of Lin
coln's time. It resembles it only in
name. So remember when you colored
voters cast your votes, stand for *Ji«
party that advocates freedom. Freedom
always; that's what we want. r-at's
what you want. You, as representes of
an oppressed race, ought to have 10/o
for the principles of the Democratic pcr
ty; great love; and I know you have. It
wants freedom, justice, equality to .ill.
"1 have noticed that the Republican
organs of late have sought to injure the
name of "Honest John Lind." They have
used methods that ought to make any
decent man blush, and without any war
rant, without any cause. I do not care
to repeat what they have printed; you
have probably all seen the shameful aiv
ticles, but whatever they attempt, what
ever they do, the charges will sink into
oblivion and the name of Honest John
Lind will be remembered long after these
papers have been forgotten. That is no
idle dream.
"John Land has made the best governor
Minnesota has ever had. It is of such
recent occurence you must all know what
he has accomplished in the way of taxa
tion on mining properties and street rail
way property. Under his ever watchful
eye, much property and thousands of dol
lars have been saved to this state.
"It cannot be possible that the execu
tive of such an efficient administration
should not be rewarded with a second
term. The voters of this state tomorrow
will elect him, and that because he has
earned a second term."
James Hickey, Democratic candidate
for the legislature from the Fourth ward,
was the next speaker. The substance of
his speech was to the effect that the
Philipinos were fighting for their free
dom, and that the colored voters of thig
country ought to have no indecision as to
what party to adhere to.
He closed with the statement that if a
Democrat voted only part of the ticket,
he ought to vote all of it, and back up
the party from beginning to end, from
top to bottom.
Peter Van Hoven, Democratic candi
date for sheriff, cut his remarks very
short. He said that during the last few
days his opponent had been distributing
a circular in the Fourth ward asking the
support of the colored voters.
Another meeting was held at Martin's
opera house, on the West Side. Chas.
McDonald, ward chairman, presided, and
in his introductory remarks said that the
outlook was never better for success.
Following were the speakers on the pro
gramme: Moritz Heim, Humphrey Bar
ton, Louis Betz. Col. J. Hawthorne, Thos.
R. Kane, Pred Ford, Dr. Stone, ireter
Van Hoven, Anton Miesen, Frank Baer,
Anthony Yoerg, D. J. Galvin, A. J.
Graves. The meeting was one of the
most enthusiastic held in the Sixth ward.
He Say* It Was Unfair to His thief,
Horace BigelOTV.
Several box»s of cigars and a promise
that Senator Knute Nelson might ar
rive at any minute kept intact a fair
sized crowd until a late hour last evening
at the Republican Second ward head
quarters, 714 East Seventh street.
That interest might not wane ami the
senator arrive only to find an empty
house, Assistant Attorney Zoilman and
several ward speakers filled in the time,
the former being the principal talker and
speaking at length.
Casually he touched en national ana
state issues, the principal portion of his
remarks being directed in an attempted
eulogy of his chief's recoTd, which, he
said, the Globe, in an underhanded
manner, had seen fit to impugn. No
Republican paper would attack a man's
political record without cause. It was
only Democratic papers that indulged in
this kind of work.
After Mr. Zollman had held the floor
for considerable over an hour and many
were leaving for their homes, Senator
Nelson and his body guard entered the
door, his appearance bringing out the
only genuine demonstration of the even
ing. He showed the fatigue of twp other
speeches, however, and his remarks were
consequently brief, being an appeal to
support McKinley and Van Sant, "and
to see that Republican state senators
and representatives are elected."
The latter appeal he was most eloquent
in, as to send a Democratic senator to
Washington, he said, would be a state dis
grace, and besides would embarrass Mc-
Kmley in his Philippine and other poli
Van Sant, Mr. Nelson contended, should
be elected because he believes in McKin
ley and the Republican party. Mr. Mc-
Kinley, in hi 3 foreign policy, needs the
support of Republicans, and they only
should be seated. The Philippines, he
contended, were a commercial necessity,
and their possession by the United States
would open a market for American
goods, which the residents of Minnesota
would benefit by and profit from. TUs
concluding plea was to stand by the
flag and save the honor of the country.

To sum the entire matter up in a word, it is a

A Shallow Tricls _to ■, (rente Demo
cratic Dissensions Fails in Its
Republican Heel-r
, ers Sore.
A disappointed dtctatoi; was the as
tute Tains Bfxby, chief of the < 'hipp.>was,
henchman of the, administration of Mark
Hanna, editor of the Red Win.? Republi
can, erstwhile enemy and, present friend
and ruler of Van Sant, and :>oss of the
Republican party jn Minn<=.y>ta, when
the news of the explosion of one of the
most nefarious schemes wivch the Repub
licans in this state have laid during- this
campaign, came thundering into his
quagi-paHtical- sanctum yesterday. Half
the air castles in his office were jarrea
from their places where they had hung
for these many days, and Tam.s and
his host of lieutenants were a sorry lot
throughout the day, despite their vain
effort to conceal their gloom.
To the vigilance of North St. Paul citi
zens is due the credit of disclosing this
baseless scheme and thus subjecting the
arbiters of Mr. Van Sant, or captain, as
the steamboat boys term him. to ;t
most keen disappointment.
The story runs in this wise:
A certain prominent Republican in
North St. Paul stopped a prominent
Democat on the street the other day
and began to ask him in a&xtotts tones
what was the cause cf this unHi.'ndli
nesg between a certain Republican and
himself. The question astonished the
Demecrat, who has had :io intimation
heretofore that an estrangement of
friendship existed, and he make? as
anxious inquiries as his Republican
friend does. Finally the 'Jler>ubHcan
who began the conversation receives the
clue to the myatery and confidentially re
lates it to his Democratic friend.
"Say, old boy, I've got it," he says.
"So and so, of the state oent'-al com
mittee, ca-me to- me tire other day and
asked if I could designate a prominent
Democrat in North St. Paul whom he
could entrust with a llti'2 money on
the consideration that ha would use his
influence for the election of Van Sant.
He wanted the best and most active
man In the party, and I referred him to i
you. Now, I understand, that after see
ing me he went to my friend over here
and made the same inquiries to him. He
pointed out Jones aa the best man, and
now I understand that Jones has re-

ceived $30 .from the committee and is
working for Van. Of course, I heard
of this and thought that you had too,
and that you and my friend. Brown, had
had words over the matter."
This Democrat is dumbfounded to find
that any of his Democratic friends would
take Van Sant money and Jcaurt his
own ranks, and so he determines to £0
for him in hot fashion. .So .ho goes
over to Jones at tht> first opportunity
and begins to upbraid him fv>f g.iing back
on his party and selling om 10 th 3 other
side. In the meantime the RepibHcan
w-ho stirred up this affair is industriously
engaged in creating other faction* along
the line and finally has about half the
Democrats in North St. Paul at dag
gers' ends with each other. The result
is, as foreseen in the visionary :nind of
the tricksters who laid the plot, n general
wrangle among the Democrats with the
probability that not a few will deckle
through disgust to vote the Republican
This thing was put into operation the
first of last week and fortunately was
discovered in time to counteract its in
fluence and produce a reflex action that
will be seriously damaging to the men
who tried to trip their Democratic
friends. It is believed that no Demo
crat will now be deceived by this on
soienceless scheme. Had it been w.th
held until a day or two before election
so" that oven if detected its defeat could
not have been accomplished, its suc
cess would doubtless have been assumed.
While it is not known that this plot
was put into general operation over the
state, it is very probable that it was
and that its effect may be felt in some
localities where perhaps it has not been
discovered. It is one of the most base
less of the scores of similar traps ttiat
have been set by the Repuolicans to
bring about the defeat of Gov. L,!:id and
the election of Van Sant, but,. l:ke the
othe.rs, it will prove vain.
