RALlEGH,X.C.,Sept. 17. A. E. Stevenson,
Democratic nominee for vice president of
the United States arrived at this city yes
terday, where he was accom pained by a
train load of leaders and representatives of
North Carolina Democracy. Holding its
annual meeting in the city at this time is
the State Association of Democratic clubs
and early in the morning the people from
surrounding towns and the country neigh
borhoods began coming into town, so that
by the time the proceedings began the
crowd in Kaleigh was about the biggest
ever assembled here. A committee
escorted Stevenson to the hotel at 8 a. m.
and after breakfast be retired to his room
for rest, and did not reappear until late in
Escorted to the Grounds.
At 11 a. m., escorted by a cavalcade and
band, the distinguished guest and his wife
were driven to the grounds of St. Mary's
school, where there was a platform erected,
around which 3,(XiO people had gathered,
who enthusiastically cheered Mr. Steven
son when he appeared, while the band
played "Dixie." At the commencement
Stevenson established a claim on his hear
ers by saying: "The traditions, the history,
the glory of old North Carolina are as dear
to me as to yourselves. The blood of my
kindred as of yours was shed at the battle
of King's Mountain, and my kindred with
yours united in forming the glorious
Mecklenburg declaration of independence;
so that I feel that I have a right to a wel
come from old North Carolina. And, in
deed, I have had a welcome for which I
wish to extend my most profound and
Commands the Walksr Tariff.
The tariff was first taken up and the
speaker commended the Walker tariff,
which he said was a fair tariff law and
there lnd never been a period in our his
tory when it was easier for the wage-earner
to make a living for his family, because
under that ante-bellum tariff the cot of
the necessities of life had reached the low
est point and the dollar a man earned
went into his pockrt except a small por
tion that went incidentally into the pock
ets of the protected ila-M- of the country.
The tariff portion of ihf speech was a
repetition of what he I. ad stated at Se
dalia. Mo., and in his Indiana tour, both
as to matter and form.
nets "Onto" the Force Hill.
The next subject touched was the
"force" bill. He declared in this connec
tion, that it was contemplated and in
tended by the Republicans, if successful
in the coming contest, to pass a force bill.
"I believe it," shouted a man on the
outer fringe of the audience,
"You may well believe it," said Mr.
Stevenson, "because a Republican house
controlled by Speaker Reed in the Fifty
first congress passed what is known as the
force bill. Every Republican member of
that house excepting three voted for that
bill and every Democratic member, north
and south, east and west, voted against it.
But for the fact that when that bill passed
from the house to the senate it was con
fronted by the solid phalanx of Democratic
senators it would to-day be a law."
Appeal to the Third Party Men.
After reciting the evils of the "carpet
bag" rule the sneaker said: "Here are the
men around me and here are the men be
fore me who were the leaders and the fol-
lowers in that great battle by which re-,
demption came to the state and the Deui-j
ocratic party came into power. Applause.
And you are told now that it is not safe to
trust the Democratic party, but that your
interests arc either with the Republican
party or with a third or fourth party, in
which you are to fold your arms aud re
main idle spectators while this great bat
tle is going on. I Appeal to Democrats; I
peal to that class of our citizens who be
lieve that somehow or other their interests
are to be subserved b- allying themselves
with the third party." If the force bill
were passed there would be no difficulty
in electing Republican presidents and

poke next, and the meet ing closed with
three cheers for Cleveland and Stevenson.
The Stevenson party immeuiately took
train for Charlotte. En route a stop was
made at Durham last night, where an ex
tensive demonstration was held with par
ade aud speaking. Mr. Stevenson ad
dressed the throng, around the outside of
which was a fringe of negroes, who listened
but did not join in the cheers that fre
quently punctuated Stevenson's remarks,
lie briefly touched on the tariff and de
voted the major part of the speech to the
"force" bill issue.
An Informal Reception.
At the conclusion of the sneaking the
band played ''Hail Columbia" and then
Mr. Carr, a prominent Democrat, threw
open his bouse aud Mr. Stevenson held an
informal reception. While Mrs. Stevenson
was in Raleigh driving to the place of
meeting there a company of little girls
stepped up to her carriage and presented
a lovely bat-ket of flowers to her. Mrs.
Stevenson called them around her and
with kindly giace kissed each one in turn.
She was very much touched by the in
cident. REID WITH THE CLUB MEN.
Enthusiastically Received by the Cos
Trntiou at Huffalo.
BUFFALO, Sept. 17. The Republican
clnb convention was slow coming to order
yesterday, but when it did begin it pushed
Its work rapidly to conclusion. Tne reso
lutions adopted are standard Republican
and indorse the "wise, patriotic and
statesmanlike" administration of Presi
dent Harrison. They also provide for the
representation of college leagues in this
national body. The speakers daring the
odssion expressed great sansiacnon at tne
invasion of the colleges where nothing
but free trade was taught by the button
of the Republican league. Officers were
elected without friction Clarkson, presi
dent; Humphrey, secretary, and Louns
bury,. treasurer; all by by acclamation.
Reid Die in Fifteen Minutes.
Louisville was selected as the place and
the second Wednesday in May, 18U3, as the
date for the next meeting of the conven
tion. While the speeches nominating can
didates for offices were being delivered
President McAlpin, of the New York
state league, announced that the Hon.
Whitelaw Reid was due in fifteen minutes
and that a committee should be appoinyd
to meet him. A delegate from each state
was appointed and went to the station to
meet him. The anuual address of Pre si- j
dent Clarkson was ordered printed as a j

was a noise outside.
The Candidate Arrives.
As the convention listened and looked,
two bands with campaign clubs marched,
into the hall escorting the Hon. Whitelaw
Reid. There was a scene of wildest enthu
siasm, the delegatesstanding on the chairs
and shout'ng themselves hoarse. When
order had been restored after much trouble
by the president Reid was introduced, and
said: Notice was served upon me that no
speech was expected, and that you were
about to adjourn for dinner. I shall not
detain you, therefore, except to thank you
and congratulate you upon the fact that
the Republican fires are burning brightly
and that the outlook is most encouraging.
Because there has not been more noise and
bluster the Democrats shout about apathy
in the Republican party. I beg of you not
todiabuse their minds of that belief.
Held an Impromptu Reception.
"Let them believe if they will that the
eastern state events have discouraged us.
They have raised such hopes before. They
will be rudely shattered iu November just
as usual. I finish my remarks with
thanks for the pleasure of addressing
you." There were three hearty cheers and
then a motion was put and carried that
with thanks to the people of Buffalo the
convention acijurned sine die. Three
cheers were given for Harrison and Reid
and then an impromptu reception was
held by Keid on the stae, all of the dele
gates paying their respects.
The Auxiliary Meetings.
While the last session of the national
convention was in session the Woman's
National association held a meeting, Mrs.
Foster, of Iowa, presiding. She made a
brilliant address, calling on the women
to help the Republican cause aud telling
them how they cau best work.
In the afttrnoon the American College
league held its meeting and listened to
an address by President Burke on politics
in the college, or the college student in
politics, which he sai.l would be a good
thing both for the student and politics.
There were 150 deleputes present and
Yale, Harvard. Cornell, Union, Rutgers,
Ann Arbor were among the colleges rep

Last night there was a parade of 2,000

Washington-, Sept. IT. The Department
of the Potomac of the Grand Army of the

sent the name of Cantain J. M. Pipes, past
department commander, to the national
encampment for the office of senior vice
commander-in-chief, and that of D. A.

Labor Commissioner Peck.
Albaxt, Sept. 17. The excitement in
political circles here is intense over yes

Commissioner Peck and his stenographer,
Paid the Janitor Three Dollars.
The proceedings in court were conducted
with great secrecy, but it has come out
that counsel for the prosecution say they
produced affidavits and got admissions
from Rotifers and Kean to the effect that
last Sunday night Commissioner Peck
paid $3 to the janitor, a man named Den
nison, in eharpe"of the apartment house
where be (Peck ) lives during his stay in
Albany, in return for which payment the
janitor wait to burn in the furnace a quan
tity of private papers which were no longer
of any use.
Just the Papers They Wanted.
The janitor is alleged to have dine what
was asked of him, but Chase aud Eaton
declare that he did not do his work thor
oughly enough, since they now have in
their possession charred fragments of the
papers thrown into the furnace, and these
fragments show, they aver, that they were
parts of the oriirinal retnrns received by
Commissioner IVck from man u fact urers

Wouldn't Show 'Em the Records.
During the afternoon Commissioner
Peck gave an audience to a committee
representing the Democratic national
committee, headed by Nelson Smith, of
Massachusetts. One of its members was
E. Ellery Anderson, with whom Commis
sioner Peck declined to have anything to
do on the ground that he had assailed the
commissioner in the public prints. The
committee wanted to see the original rec
ords used by Commissioner Peck in the
compilation of his report, but the com
missioner would not permit them to be

terday discharged the 171 prisoners ar
rested in the Garfield raid. The justice)
held that the city's case rested on the un
constitutionality of the law of 188? per

no other course for him to adopt but to
