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

"May we not hope," he concluded, "that

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

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.
ALL WANT THE CANAL
Even President Cleveland Is in
Favor of It.
The Senate Committee on Foreign
Relations Will Presently
Report Its Bill.
Washington, March 28.— Senate
Committee on Foreign Relations lias under
| c nsideratlon bills looking to the reorgani
zation of the* Nicaragua Canal Company,
and friends of the enterprise in the Senate
are very hopeful of securing a favorable
rep at an early day. The sub-committee
! to consider the details of the question
and to prepare a bill, it is understood,
''. submitted a report to tbe full committee
! to-day recommending the adoption of
! Senator Morgan's bill with some amend
ments. This bill provides for the reor
ganization of tbe canal company with a
: capital stock of 1,000,000 shares at $100
■ each, for the issuance of bonds, the pay
j ment of which will be guaranteed by the
j national treasury, and for the cancella
! tion of the stock of the old company, and
i prescribing the method of procedure un
der the organization act. It is not sup
l posed the bill will go through the com
( mittee without opposition. However, It
is thought there will be a safe majority
■ for the bill in committee, and there is
I little doubt the bill will go on the calen
i dar with a favorable report Friends of
ie bill assert that the scheme for build
; ing a canal across the isthmus under the
[ auspices of the United States lias made
: material progress in public estimation
within the past few years, and atten
i tion is called to the fact by a member of
! tbe committee that the President had
; changed from the attitude of hostility
! which be occupied nine years ago to one
. of advocacy, and that the Legislatures of
the various States and tbe chambers of
I commerce of several large cities have
: memorialized Congress in the interest of
I the enterprise, advocating the building of
the canal by tbe Government or witn its
support. It is also asserted that the House
committee, which originally opposed the
measure, has changed in sentiment and is
now in a fair way to report a bill similar
! to the Morgan bill.

request of the President of Parliament
and prominent Liberals Herr Maurice
Johal, the well-known Hungarian novelist
and writer, has consented to deliver the
oration at Kossuth's grave. He took part
in the revolution of 1849 and, therefore, is
well qualified to speak upon tbe subject of
Kossuth'- life.
Washington, March 28.— The following
is the let er of Vice-President Stevenson
transmitting the condolence of the United
States Senate to the family of Louis

SUFFRAGE IN AUSTRIA.
Dr. Adler Does Not Think the Case
Is Desperate.
Vienna. March 28.— At the socialist
congress here to-day, a resolution declar
ing in favor of the policy of ultimately
declaring a general strike was adopted.
Resolutions were adopted declining to ac
cept the Government's project for electoral
reform, and urging that every means be
employed to obtain universal suffrage.
The congress decided to support the de
mand on the Ministers that eight hours
constitute a legal day's work. A proposal
was made that in the event of a general
strike being inaugurated, workincmen re
fuse to nay rent. After some argument it
was cted.
Reasons were submitted by Dr. Adler,
leaving open the questions of why and
how a general effect 6hould be effected.
Dr. Adler pointed out the extreme danger
of s rikes unless there was absolute cer
tainty of success. He reminded his bear
ers that the troops In the large cities
would make short work of any popular
rising. Dr. Adler concluded by declaring
that he was convinced such an extreme
measure as a popular rising would not be
required to secure universal suffrage. <*_>

posed road will make Monterey n much
shorter standard route to the United
States t:ian at present.

Irish Leaders in a Squabble About
the Freeman's journal.
Dublin', March 28.— There was a crowd
ed meetlnc yesterday of the shareholders
of the Freeman's Journal. Thomas Sex
ton, M. P., who spoke, severely criticized
tie action of the directors, complaining
that in spite of loss of money there was
no spirit of economy shown.
John Dillon said that this was his' last
day in the board ol directors, and de
nounced Mr. Dealy's scheme to guarantee
dividends as a bogus plan. Throughout
Mr. Dillon's 6Peech there were frequent
interruptions and a number of exciting
scenes. Mr. Bealy, who followed, bitterly
attacked Mr. Dillon, declaring that be had
nut a penny invested in the paper. Mr.
Healr was also frequently interrupted, but

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.
Washington, March Representa
tive Bryan tr-day made a statement be
fore the Committee on Ejections of Presi
dent and Vice-President and Representa
tives in Congress on both of his proposed
amendments to the constitution pioviding
for the election of Senators by direct vote
of the people whenever tbey make provis
ion for the same by statute or otherwise.
The committee expects to reach a decision
on the question at its next meeting. The
proposed change of inauguration date to
April 30. the meeting of Congress on the
second Monday of January, and tbe 31st
of December as the commencement and
termination of terms of members of Con
gress as embodied in the resolution intro
duced by Cram of Texas also came up for
discussion to-day, but no conclusion was
reached.
NO GENERAL KIRKLAND.
Doubt About the Pedigree of Howard
Gould's Affianced.
Nashville. March 28.— The announce
ment that Howard Gould was engaged to
marry Miss Kirkland, a daughter of Gen
eral Kirkland of Tennessee, has mystified
Tennesseeans. There is no General Kirk
land in this part of tbe State. Miss Kirk
land la known only in her professional
capacity.
New York, March 28.— The statement
that Howard Gould, third son of the late
Jay Gould, and Miss Odette Tyler, the
young actress, were engaged to be married,
•--•as confirmed to-day by Mr. Gould and
Miss Tyler herself. She was fouud after
rehearsal at the theater this morning.
"The statement that Howard Gould and
I are engaged to be married is correct,"
she said. "We have been engaged about a
month. The engagement was formed in
Washington. 1 first met Mr. Gould in
Portland. Or., two years ago, when I was
playing there. I do not know when we
will be married. We have not discussed
that matter yet."
Miss Tyler is not a Tennesseean, as has
been stated, but a Georgian. She said :
