A Rousing Democratic Ratifi
cation Meeting at Co
lumbus, Ohio.
A Scathing and Satirical Re
view of Blaine's Letter
by Thurman.
Much Benthusiasm An Im
mense Audience and
Plain Talk.
Columbus, 0, July 19. About five
thousand people attended the democratic
ratification meeting at the east front of the
capital this evening. John E. Thompson
presided and read letters from gentlemen
who had been invited to be present
"Gov. Cleveland wrote : "I thank you
for your words of encouragement and as
surance of a hearty support. I am con
vinced that the democracy of Columbus
and the state of Ohio are determined to
complete an organization which is abso
lutely essential to victory."
Gen. Dnrbin Ward wrote : "I regret I
will be unable to attend the ratification
meeting. I preferred Thurman to all
other men for piesident and deeply regret
his defeat. It was due him and an honor
to Ohio that should have had a solid vote.
For that I worked. Those who opposed it
of the party, and weakened and defeated
Thurman by dividing the vote in favor of
a candidate who had no following what
ever outside or the state. That was a
blunder "worse," as Tallyrand says, "than
a crime," but we must condone all and
give a hearty support to Cleveland, the
nomiree. With Thurman, Ohio was safe
to the nominee ; let us work and hope to
make it so to Cleveland. The public wel
fare requires the defeat of Blaine. Ohio
must do her share, bury the personal de
feats, work for the cause. The latter word
was received with demonstrations.
A letter was also read from Governor
Hoadly, Secretary of State Newman and
delivered the principal speech of the even
ing and was warmly greeted. He said :
The spirit of our institutions, the welfare
of the country and rights of the citizens
of this great commonwealth all demand
the republican party shall go. Applause.
That there shall be a change of adminis
istration. Applause. The central idea of
the democratic form of government is to
prevent long continuance in office and
what is true of the individual is true of
the parties. The inevitable tendency of a
long continuance of power is to create
rings and leaders who at last from long
continued success come to think
in perpetuity something like the divine
rights. If ever two men were elected to
the presidency and vice-presidency Tilden
and Hendricks were elected, but they were
deluded out of il by one of the most atro
cious and blackest deeds which blacken
our free form of government. Applause.
The leaders of the repdblican party would
never have dared to attempt such a crime
if it had not been for their long continanoe
in power. In 1880 the election turned up
on Indiana, then carried through one of
the most stupendous and
that ever disgraced the annals of any coun
try. The vote of that state was given against
Hancock who would have received it if the
election had been fair. The chief agent
was afterwards given a grand dinner in
New York. Such a thing would never
have taken place but for that long tenuie
in office. It is only a question of time until
the people will teach them a lesson that
there are interests in our country besides
those of republican rings and leaders and
credit mobilier. Applause. I think the
people are going to demonstrate that this
year th.t the indepent republicans
with us to teach these men. This govern
ment does not belong to the republican
party, but to the people of the United
States. Applause In Mr. Blaine's let
ter of acceptance the only civil service re
form measuse he urgs is an increase in
the length of time of republiean office hol
ders. Laughter They have had the
offices of the national government twenty
three years, yet they are not satisfied and
their candidate for the presidency advo
cates one civil service reform measure and
that is to lengthen the terms of office. If
I had time I would say something more
about Blaine's letter oi acceptance. Mr.
Blaine devotes a large portion of his letter
doubltess considered
to a discussion of the tariff until your
tariff is nothing but tax and the term
tariff U used to hide the fact that it is but
tax. Blaine, in order to prove what im
mense benefit the protective tariff has been
contracts what he calls the yalue of pro
perty in the United States as shown by the
census in 1860 and 1880 , and says look
here, what an immense increase has taken
place in twenty years, and more than inti
mates, almost distinctly declares ,that the
increase as shown by these census returns
due the beneficient result of a
which prevailed during the period. He
seems to hare supposed that no man knew
the country. had increased in wealth but
himself. Every intelligent man knows the
increase between the years 1860 and 1880
was due to a former increase of currency.
This was the greatest during the war.
Flour, for instance, was twice as high as
now. The appareit wealth of the country
may be doubled and trebled, yet have not
increased the real wealth of the country
one dollar. Blaine says not a word of this.
The explanation of the apparent increase
of our wealth is plain. Is it tariff makes
lsnd worth $10 per acre in 1860 out here
in the western states now sell at $20 and
$30? Why, no; yet Blaine, who asks
your vote for president, says so, I won't
say wilfully, and I will be charitable
More Say, John, ain't you got about enough ?
J. B. B. Nary time ; can't see but twenty-three votes in Saline yet.
to make the people of this country believe
they are indebted to tariff for an immense
increase m wealth. What has become of
that wealth. Into whose pockets did it go ?
How much of it has gone into the pockets
of the laboring men of this country ? That
is the question I would like for Mr.
Blaine to answer Why it is that every paper
we pick up, if the laboring men got their
share, contains accounts of strikes. Ap
plause. Do laboring men throw down
and have a strike and to hear the cries of
theii children for bread. Applause If
there is this immense increase of the wealth
of the country, judging from the condition
of the laboring man, I must say he surely
has not got his share. Cheers. Judge
Thurman had taken his seat when some
one reminded him that he had said noth
ing for the candidates. He then came to
the front of the platform and said :
"I am not personally acquainted with
Mr. Cleveland, yet I know a great many
reliable men who are acquainted with him
and they are men on whose word I can
place entire confidence and by them I am
told that
is democratic, died in the wool ; that we
can and will elect him president of the
United States. I have been acquainted
with Mr. Hendricks more than thirty years.
He is a man of distinguished ability
whose public services and public acts
are as pure as those of any other man in
this country."
The feature of the meeting was the rad
ical free trade speech by L. A. Bussell who
spoke after A. J. Warner and just before
G. L. Converse, who opposed the Morrison
bill. Enssell denounced all such con
gressmen and the audience appreciated his
A Butler Boom.
Pittsburg, July 19 Hon. Thomas A.
Armstrong, editor of the Labor Tribune,
wa3 interviewed to-day. He said a move
ment was on foot by the leaders of the anti
monopoly and greenbackers' parties to in
augurate a new boom for Butler, which
they predict will result in the organization
of a new party, which will be
composed oi anti-monopolists, green
backers and dissatisfied democrats and
republicans. The exact mode of pro
cedure has not been determined. One plan
was to have a committee of representative
men organized for the occasion to call a na
tional convention, by means of a circular
letter, and another was to have General
Butler, after Cleveland's letter of accept
ance is published, write a letter to the peo
ple of the country which will, in itself, call
a convention.- The headquarters of the
movement are in Chicago and the leaders
are confident of its success.

Pittsburg, July 19. A Dispatch's Can

railroad two miles east of here to-night was
the scene of a terrible wreck in which one
thousand excursionists from this city mir-
acuouslv escaped with injuries, so far as is
known while it is thought half a dozen or

The employes of the Aultman & Co., ma
chine works had an annual picnic at
Cuyahoga falls to-day and over 2,000 went
on the excursion, made up ot two trains oi
fifteen cars each. The first section arrived
at Canton at 7:20 p. m. and while hundreds
of fathers, brothers andl sisters at the sta-
lion were waning lor ineir iiisqiu suu
relatives on the second section
came running down the track crying that
the train had been wrecked and many
killed and injured. The scene which fol
lowed was beyond description and when
the wreck was reached men women and
and looking for their loved ones. Nine
cars were oft the track and in the water
four ieet deep. The cries of the injured
were heartrending. Hundreds of willing
hands immediately set to work
and soon found that not more
than twenty-five were injured, but it was
impossible to say how majiy or who were
killed. A dozen or more are missing and
may be under the cars but nothing definite

prepared the following memorandum in
respect to the matter :

fully reiterated in writing, after reaching
Lady Franklin bay, that the reason for
this decision was that there was coal on the
east side and none on the west. It was in
the neighborhood of friendly Esquimaux,
who did not live on the west side.
On the east side there was aoundant
game while there was none on the west.
Quite numerous camp3 of explorers had
been established on the east side. They are
never established on the west side because
the west side was sarcelv more than bar

to support Greely in exact accord with this
arrangement was the most sacred any man
could give and to have departed from it
would have been
Thiswas done in every particular, retro
spectingly. One may now see other plans
that might have been better, but in mak
ing personal judgments we must place our
selves in the position of Greely and those
who were working with him three years
ago, at the"' time- he left the signal office
condemned by the court of inquiry because
it did not depart from this agreement so far
as to establish a depot going up instead
of com ins? down if it failed to reach Ladv

it seems now that had it been done Greely
could not have reached it, as explained in
his dispatch, for reasons then not foreseen.
