LorisviLLK, A ii p. 5. Yesterday the new
Watterson club house was dedicated and
the event was made notable by the atten
dance of many Democratic leaders, among
them Hon. Adlai K. Stevenson, nominee
for vice president; the governor of Ken
tucky and his staff, and a majority of the
state legislature, Stevenson was the guest
of honor and spoke to a great concourse of
people at Liiederkranz hall and to a smaller
gathering at the 'Watterson club houset
where he was given a reception, and Henry
Watterson also spoke. The city was in
holiday attire and in holiday spirits. The
Watterson club house was gorgeous with
decorations by day and ablaze with illumi
nation by night. Stevenson was introduced
to the liiederkranz hall audience by Gov
ernor Brown, and was greeted tumult
uously. Remarks of the lllinolxlan.
Stevenson said he was a Kentuckian.
and his years of citizenship iu another
state had not weakened the cords that
bound him to the "old commonwealth."
He gloried with Kentuckians in the his
tory and traditions of the state and
named many distinguished Illinoisians
who had been born in Kentucky Hardin,
Edwards, Cook, Stewart, Logan, Brown
ing, Dickey, Walker, and others and
continued: "But these are not alL Illi
nois is debtor to Kentucky for one more
illustrious than those I have named.
Great as a lawyer with marvellous power
as an advocate the peer of the mightiest

is not confined to the state of his birth nor
of his adoption, but is the heritage of all
A Compliment to Watterson.
' He complimented the club which, he
said, had honored Itself by adopting the
name of a man honored all over the coun
try a name that was a household word.
He touched on the war and the reconstruc
tion period, but said it would serve no
good purpose to revive these memories ex
cept for the reason that we are again con
fronted with a "force bill." In its re-enactment
history would repeat itself and
the evils that would ensue would find
their counterpart only iu those which
made up so shameful a part of the recon
The Meeting; at the Clnb Honse.
He closed with the hope that the club
would spread abroad au influence for the
right and the maintenance of our demo
cratic institutions. Speeches were made
by the Hon. J. Proctor Knott, Hon. James
A. McKenzie, Hon. Boyd Winchester.Hon.
Albert S. Willis and others. After the
adjournment of the mass meeting General
Stevenson gave a public reception. The
members of the Watterson club and their
invited guests then repaired to the Wat
terson club house, where a repast, follow
ed by a feast of reason and a flow of soul,
awaited the Democratic braves.
Watterson Makes a Speech.
After the banquet Watterson made a few
remarks, beginning with a humorous refer
ence to the choice of his name for the club
and a eulogv of Stevenson, and winding up
with congratulations that the Chicago
convention had adopted a tariff for revenue
only platform. He had expected nothing
at Chicago except Cleveland, and had got
Stevenson and a ringing declaration for
tariff for revenue. He didn't want the
earth, and the party was one and all for
Cleveland and Stevenson and the abolish
ment of the "robber tariff."
The festivities were continued to a late

Hepburn and Lyman, and Pusey, a Demo
crat whom 1 liked very well indeed in
spite of the fact that I always thought
you made a great mistake in seuding him
to congress." Great laughter. He then
tackled the money question and referred
to the failure of trie Democrats to pass a
free silver measure. He opposed two kinds
of moaey of different values, declaring
that a lt0 cent dollar will not associate
with one worth oiny eighty-three cents.
Doeon't Want "short" Dollars.
Said the speaker: "Ve don't want any
t-hort dollars in this count ry. A short dol
hir is worse than a short crop. A kind
providence may follow a short crop with a
tood one, but, providence has nothing to
tio with the lengthening of a short dollar.
Laughter. Coming to the subject of
taxation I would say that if we had the
Low er we would abolish all taxation. We
don't like it, but it is necessary to sustain
the government. The (question is how to
raise it." The governor then went into
an extended argument iu advocacy of pro
