TALK UPON THE GREAT ISSUE. Protection Expounded by the Great est of the Apostles of the Doctrine. Minneapolis. March 28.— Governor Wil liam McX iihy and party reached Minne apolis from Chicago this morning. In St. Paul they were joined by Lietiteuaut- Governor Cloud., John Goodnow, presi dent of the Republican -tat? .League, and others. Upon arrival here they were met by the students of the > ate University, to the number of COO. and the University Re publican Club. The party was escorted to the West Hotel, where 4000 people had assembled. Along tie route to the hotel the bands had been playing "Marching Through Georgia." the refrain of which was "While we are booming McKinley," and the famous Ski-Uh-Mah yell of the university students rent the air. The Governor's reception at the hotel was only such as 4000 strong Northwestern throats could give. The North Star Quar tet sau£ "All Hail," expressing the senti ment "McKinley Leads — We Follow," after which the Governor ascended the staircase and was introduced by President Goodnow. He directed his remarks par ticularly to the students, and declared that it was to the young men of the eouutrv that all parties must look. During bis address he declared that the people of the country never wanted to vote in all their history as they did now. Later the Governor was driven to the Exposition . building, where the Stale League of Republican clubs was in ses sion. There he made another address, in which he said nobody could tell what would happen, and nobody knew what the Democratic Congress would do. He then went on to talk about the principles of protection. Late, in the day be was driven under the guidance of Bishop Fowler, Governor Nel son and Mayor Eu-tis to several State i:i stitntions and niaue a splendid address to the pupils of the Central High School. In the evening he was escorted to the Exposition building, which was packed to overflowing with people from all parts of the Northwest to hear the leading address of the day. The meeting was presided over by Got 'TDnr -N.; .on, who/ without formality,-in troduced Governor McKinley. As he rose to speak he was enthusiastically greeted by 8000 people, representing every Repub lican organization of the State. He spoke from manuscript for an hour and a half, and the closest attention was paid to his remarks. At the conclusion he was ac corded a rising vote of thanks for his cour tesy in visiting the Northwest and for the masterly effort presented. In introducing bis remarks Governor McKinley said : "The platform and can didate of the great convention assembled in 180--, admirable as they were, were re jected by the people at the election follow ing, but the people had un sooner spoken than they realized their great mistake— a mistake which they now feel more sensibly and regret more deeply. The principles enunciated at that convention was true theu — they are true now. They are as dear to Republicans now, as they are bet er understood and more ardently sup. orted by 'he great body of the people in the year 1894 than they were in the year 1892. While the Republican party failed to carry the election, the cause for which it contended aid not fail, lt survived the awful disas ter and shines more gloriously than ever." Before reciting the experiences and changes which have befallen the country during the past year, speaking of the panic, he recited the principles enunciated in the platform of 1892, namely: A pro tective tariff, reciprocity, the use of both gold and silver, honest elections, the ex tension of our foreign commerce, the restoration of our merchant marine. the creation of a navy, the maintenance of more friendly relations with foreign pow ers and the affirmation of ihe Monroe doc trine saying that like all Republican doc trines the are unchangeable. He maintained that the victory of the Democrats was brought about by profuse and glittering promises and that that party now stands demoralized on the field of performance, having signally failed to redeem a signal pledge it made to the pen pie. He quoted Dun's review of trade for 1893 and compared the gloomy prospects there presented with the report of the prosperous year of 1892. He then re viewed tariff legislation from 1790 down to the present time, showing that all the prosperous periods of the country were under a protective tariff. • Governor McKinley said be had re viewed the \Vllson bill and found nothing but irritation and aggravation to the great industries of the country, no interest gain ing by it. Continuing, he said: "Pis true that sugar, an article of prime neces sity and which the law of 1890 made free to the people, has been tariffed at from 1 to l 4-10 cents per pound, every cent of which will be paid by the consumers of the United States. But doubtless In com pensation for this added burden of up ward of £50,000,000 and in default of it (hey lowered the tariff on tobacco and have extended the bonded period for the warehouses of whisky and given to the distillers eight years in which to pay the tax. They have restored the tariff on coal, but in fairness they should be cred- Red with having taken the tariff off dia monds. lam not here to discuss rates or schedules. They are subject to change up or down as new conditions require it; but my insistence is that these changes must ever be governed by the protective prin ciple. Rates may be. should be and will be amended as time &s new processes of manufacture and changes commercial con ditions require." In closing the Governor said a general election* was never before so much desire, as now and never 60 much needed. The altogether too common idea that there is in fact little difference between the two parties and that tbe country will prosper The Morning Call. equally whoever may be In power has been completely exploded by one year's trial of the Democratic party. "May we not hope," he concluded, "that the spirit of ju.t cc and patriotism, which animated you in the critical days of the past, when the people of the northwest led the hosts of freedom in the ureal contest with the slave power may still In spire you to even mightier effort in behalf of the fundamental principles of our Gov ernment and of our industrial independ ence and pro peri REPUBLICAN LEAGUE CLUBS. Minnesota Will Wheel Into Line Splendidly Organized. Minneapolis, March 28. — Harmonia Hall, the meeting-place of the State League of Republican Clubs, was pacKed to suffocation when President Goodnow called- the assemblage to order, It was evident from the moment his gavel dropped that the accommodations were not sufficient to allow all the delegates breathing room. After a prayer had been offered by Bishop Fowler, President Gimdnow announced that the meeting would be adjourned to the Exposition building, which has a capacity of over 5000. Headed by the band, 1900 odd dele gates marched to the Exposition building, made famous by the last National Repub lican convention. After a brief spe«ch by the President, Governor McKinley's well known lace advanced up the aisle. The vast assemblage rose, cheering, and the band played "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." President Goodnow, in presenting the Governor, asked the audience to rise and give three cheer. , which was responded to. Governor McKinley. then made a stir- I ring address, which in its main points did not differ from the speech m«de at the j exposition budding. After the retirement I of Governor McKinley tbe election of offi | cers followed. John Goodnow of this city | was re-elected by acclamation as presi i dent, and J. XV. Stevens or St. Paul was elecied secretary. At 1:45 o'clock busi ness was declared concluded, and the league adjourned until the evening meeting. The Commitiee on Resolutions com ! pleted the work assigned them this even | ing, and at a mass-meeting at which i Major McKinley spoke presented resolu tions for adoption. Tluy were lengthy in character and embraced a scorching arraignment of the Democratic party, par ticularly in regard to its action in the mat ter of pensions; indorsed the administra tion of Governor Nelson of Minnesota; complimented the officers of the league for faithful service during the past year, and concluded by reaffirming faith and j loyally to the principles of the Republican i party.

WARM FOR POACHERS. Vessels That Will Patrol Bering Sea. Secretary Gresham Proposes to Give Illegal Hunters No Chance at All. Washington. March 28.— agree ment relative to the seal fisheries has not yet been i effected, although it is supposed to be near that stage. It ls understood the main point of difference arises from the insistence of the British Government that warning be served on tbe Canadian sealers who go into trie forbidden seas be fore the agreement is ratified as prelimi nary to seizure. Secretary Gresham has taken the ground that the vessels have al ready had sufficient warning in the publi cation of the discussion of the arbitrators and their decision. This point, however, does not appear to involve a difference so radical as to threaten an amicable under standing. Secretary Gresham bad an in terview with the President to-day after Sir Julian Pauncefote's visit, and an evi dence of the expectation of the .adminis tration was afforded by the selection of vessels for the patrol fleet and the begin ning of the preparation of the sailing or ders of the fleet. The vessels designated for tbe service are the Mohican, Captain C. E. Clark; the Yorktown, Captain Fol ger; the Alert, Captain Morgan; the Bennington, Captain C. M. Thom as; tbe Ranger, Captain Longnecker; the Adams, Captain Brice; tbe Con cord, Captain Goodrich; the Petrel, Captain Emery; the revenue cutters Bear, Rush and Corwin and the Fish Commis sion's vessel Albatross. The patrol will include twelve serviceable vessels, and with ore exception, the Rush, they probably will all be ready to assume 'their position by the Ist ot May and follow the seal herds north from the California boundary line as soon as they appear, making it warm fof the poachers who may seek to operate in the North Pacific and Bering Sea this season. While Captain Clark of the Mohican is the senior officer of the fleet it has not yet been decided which of the fleet shall act as flagship. London, March 28.— Attorney-General Sir Charles Russell will Introduce in tbe House of Commons to-morrow a bill pro viding for the proper enforcement of the Bering Sea arbitration. It is understood the bill will not be op osed. Sir Charles Topper, Canadian Commis sioner to London, who was one of the British agents at the Bering Sea tribunal of arbitration in Paris, held a long inter view to-day with Sir Robert Meade at the Foreign Office. Sir Charles expresses the opinion that although it would have been preferable to have bad no delay in legaliz ing the award of the tribunal of arbitra tion there was every reason to believe all the countries concerned in the seal fisher ies would peacefully conform to the award directly on legalizing. Vallejo. March 28.— The first of the Bering Sea fleet has started on its north ern cruise. Tbe United States ship Mohi can cast loose her moorings at tbe Mare Island Navy-yard this afternoon. This morning final telegraphic orders were re ceived from Secretary Herbert, and in less than one hour the Mohican was under way. As the Mohican steamed down the stream she was saluted by scores of whistles, tbe monitor Monterey rendering a purling salute of three blasts of the siren, while the water front of both Vallejo and Mare Island was thronged with people wishing the Mohican and ber crew a hearty bon voyage, -v Walker on the Way. Washington, March 28. — Admiral Walker started from Washington this evening for San Francisco to take tbe steamer of April 5 for Honolulu. Chicago, March 28.— A special to the Record from Washington says: Secretary Gresham in conversation with a gentleman to-day stated that Admiral Walker's mission to the Hawaiian Islands had nothing to do with the establishment of a naval depot at Pearl Harbo , but that dispatches had been received from Willis, which it was not considered expedient to send to Congress, indicating that an outbreak might occur at Honolulu at any time, which would reqnire the pres ence of a cool, shrewd and determined man to look after the interests of tbe United States. " Yellow Jack at Rio. Rio Janeiro, March 28.— The deaths from yellow fever now average seventy per day. WAITED TOO LONG Forbearance No Longer a Virtue. PACIFIC ROADS MUST PAY. The Government Has Been Very Patient With Them. CONGRESS TO ACT IMMEDIATELY Mr. Boatner's Move to Secure a Committee Will Result in Some Definite Understanding. Washington, March 28.— Speaking of Mr. B atner's proposition to move for the collection of the Pacific Railroad debt. Representative lie illy of Pennsylvania, chairman of the House Committee on Pa cific Railroads, said to-day: "I regard this as one of the most important questions be fore Congress, not excepting the tariff and finance. But the very importance of the question demands that it should be treated with deliberation. The amount involved is about 5135.000.000, and the proper pro tection of the Government and the collec tion ot such a sum requires the most de liberate and careful action on the part of Congress. Now that we are confronted with the solution of this great problem, owing to the rapid approach of the matu rity of ibis enormous debt, and the neces sity for some legislation, the importance of the subject is at once apparent. But at the outset we are confronted with all these complications of laws and decisions covering a period of years and quite as complex and of as great a magnitude as any question with which Congress has bad to deal in recent years. We have arrived at a stage in the nistory of this transaction when legisla tion of some character is absolutely neces sary, and previous legislation on the sub ject bas been deferred awaiting the approach of tbe maturity of this debt, when the situation and its necessities could be better understood and more wisely considered. The first installment of the bonds issued by the Government in aid of the construction of these roads falls due in January, 1895, and must be provided for during the next fiscal year. As the Secretary of the. Treasury calls the attention of Congress to it in his recent annual reports, the whole debt will be maturing from that date dur ing the next four years. The first installment of bonds amounts to 82,362,000. Tbey are absolutely payable on the date of their maturity, and hence the necessity for legislation in this re spect. The Commi-tee on Pacific Rail roads, made up of some of the strongest men in the House, are giving tbe subject their m oat earnest consideration, and feel it their doty to frame and report some sat isfactory legislation. The committee ex pects to have hearings by ail parties inter ested and exercise their most earnest efforts to arrive at a just solution of this great problem. What conclusion the com mittee may arrive at, or the character of legislation they may determine to report, it is yet too early to predict. One thing is certain, however, that the committee fully appreciates the gravity of the responsibil ity imposed upon them, and .Intends to meet it fully with an eye to securing the best possible protection of the Govern ment's Interest." THURSTON MUZZLED. It Looks as Though the Gulf Road Would Win. Omaha, March 28.— The hearing of the Union Pacific-Gulf case in the United S ates Circuit Court was continued to-day, the argument of Attorney Hobson not having been completed. Hr. Hobson started this morning to show that the Union Pacific was not a bankrupt road, but oil the Ist of January ot tbe present year it was in a flourishing condition. When he began to quote figures to sus tain ills contention, Judge Caldwell inter rupted and Inquired why, if the facts were as, stated, Mr. H<>bson did not begin pro ceedings to have the receivership set aside. * o The attorney replied that be was not attacking the receivership, but wished to show that the road was perfectly solvent, and therefore able to carry out the con tracts entered into with the Gulf Company. He asserted that there had been no failure on the part of the Union Pacifi ■ line to pay interest obligator's on the main line when due. He alleged that when such default was imminent, George Gould and Russell Sage went down into a fund set aside for such purposes and brought out enough to meet tbe requirements of tbe case. He as serted that it was necessary for them to take $250,000 from this fund on January 1 to. meet the obligations due. He chal lenged the receivers to show that they had made a single report since their appoint ment as to tbe condition of tbe trust im posed on them. -When the noon' recess was taken Mr. Hobson had not concluded his argument and tbe expected statement of Receiver Clark on the wage conference was not filed in court this morning. There were some sensational features during the afternoon session. Mr. Hob son completed his argument and then At torney Pattison made the closing address on behalf of the Gulf. Before Judge Thurston, General Solicitor of the Union Pacific, began his closing argument, Judge Sanborne remarked that if the counsel would confine his address to the considera tion of the measure of compensation to be paid between October 13 and December 18, 1893, he thought tbe court could reach an agreement on the other points In dispute without listening to any more argument. Mr. Thurston then opened his final appeal to the court. He declared that the state ments of Attorney Hohson in regard to the solvency of the Union Pacific were without any foundation in fact Mr. Thurston had nearly completed his argu ment when the court adjourned and will close to-morrow morning. BRYAN'S SCHEME. Proposal to Elect Senators by Pop- ular Vote.

We have not discussed that matter yet." Miss Tyler is not a Tennesseean, as has been stated, but a Georgian. She said : "I was born in Savannah. My father was General W. W. Kirkland. He served in the civil war, where he got his rank. My grandfather was General Hardee, the au thor of 'Hardee's Military Tactics,' and be also served in the Confederate army.
