Business Men for Cleveland.
An Unparalled Turnout to Greet
the Governor—Thousands Upon
Thousands Wild With En
NKW YORK, Oct. 15.—The business
men's meeting at the Academy of Mu
sic was a complete success. The build
ing was jammed within 10 minutes
from the time of the opening of the
door. Thousands upon Thousands of
people gathered in the vicinity of the
building to get a glimpse of Gov. Cleve
land, who was expected; The usual
pyrotechnic display on H magnified
scale was held in the adjoining streets
and the auditorium was tastefully dec
orated with flowers and bunting.Cheers
for Cleveland and Hendricks were
heard on all sides, the crowd being par
ticularly demonstrative and enthusias
tic. The stage was crowded with dele
gations from the various exchanges.
Ex-3/ayor Grace presided and speeches
were made by Governor Wallace, of
Connecticut, and 11. W. Beecher.
During the speech of the latter, Gov.
Cleveland was announced* Ilis recep
tion beggars description. Everv per
son in the vast crowd rose to his feet
and cheered and waved his handker
chief or hat as though out of his senses.
Mr. Beecher appeared to be greatly af
fected by the enthusiasm. Gov. Cleve
land came to the front of 'the stage and
made several attempts to speak. He
was not allowed to proceed for fully
five minutes. At last he said ;
4 'Ladies and Gentlemen : I thank
you for the kind reception and I am
sure it is cause for congratulation that
so many of the business men of this
great metropolis have found season in
the pending political struggle for united
and earnest effort. It has been my
firm belief that one reason we as a peo
ple do not enjoy to the utmost the ad
vantages of our form of Government is
found in the fact tligit our business
men are apt to neglect their political
duties. The idea is too common among
them that there is a heroism and a vir
tue in refusing to hold office, and the
stern denial of any interest in politics
seems to be regarded by many of this
class as the best asseveration of their
private virtue and business integrity, j
The protection and safety of the inter
est they have in charge are closely con
nected with a wise administration of
the government,and it hits always seem
ed to me that if a regard for their duty
as citizens did not impel them to take a
more actiye interest in political affairs,
the desire and need of self-preservation
would do so. I believe, too, that the
best administration uf the government
is accomplished when it is conducted
on business principles, and it is quite
apparent that the active participation
of our business men in the political
campaign is an affective mode of im
pressing the principals upon the man
agement of public affairs.
"I construe this large and enthusias
tic meeting as the determination on the
part of the business men, from which it
had its rise, as the promise of a time
when they shall find the path of duty,
as well as interest, in a practical and
intelligent interference with political
questions and issues."
A LETTER FROM TILDEN.
Gproarous applause punctuated the
governor's speech. At every period the
cheers were deafening. A letter was
read from Samuel J. Tilden regretting
that his health prevented bis attend
ance. He says .*
"I remember gratefully that when It
was my duty as governor to engage in
a grapple with the canal ring which

state and a majority of the local organi

the orginizations of the republican par

"I concur in your opinion that the
election of Cleyeland and Hendricks is
demanded by the best interests of the
country. I believe that their election
will be a substantial victory for the
cause of gootf government and that it
will assure us a safe and prudent ad
ministration of the chief magistracy of
the public in our relations with other
countries and that it will restore sim
plicity and ecouomy in the needs of the
federal government. So far that result
depends upon the executiye, for it wi'l

Hensel Issues an Address.
The Promising Out-look—Timely
Words of Interest to the People.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 16.—-Chairman
Hensel, of the democratic state com
mittee, has issued the following ad
To the Democratic and Independ
ent Voters of Pennsylvania : As
the returns from the October election
become more complete the magnitude
of the victory achieved by the friends
of good government is apparent. The
discomfiture of our opponents is mani
fest. In Ohio the republican majority
is cut down to one half of that of the
corresponding election of 1880, and
the democrats have elected more than
half the congressional delegation.
In Virginia, where Blaine's hench
men had boasted that a republican vic
tory was "a mere matter of finance,"
the democrats have won an unprece
dented majority over a fusion of all
opposition. The elections thus far held
show republican losses and democratic
gains in Alabama, Arkansas, Vermont,
Georgia, West Virginia and Ohio. Iu
Maiue alone by the greatest effort and
through the debauchery of the ballot
box, has Blaine been .able to bring auy
comfort to his party.
Whatever the republicans have secur
ed for their candidate has been only by
the most desperate contest his party
ever made by the degradation of his
own candidacy and the prostitution of
the civil service and the expenditure of
vast sums of money, all concentrated
by turns or. a single state. Henceforth
the enemies of administrative reform
must confront a different situation.
The battle lines are now formed on a
field that stretches across the entire
couutry. An harmonious and aggres
sive organization in New York, Indi
ana, New Jersey and Connecticut, as
sures the electoral votes of these states
for Cleveland and Hendricks, and se
cures their election beyond doubt. In
California, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michi
gan, Illinois and Massachusetts, our
friends make hopeful battle.
It remains for the democracy of
Pennsylvania and all tho friends of
better public methods to strenghten
the cause by ceaseless efforts in our
own state. From this time until elec
tion day the democrats and their allies
in Pennsylvania must be vigilant and
untiring to elect the electoral, con
gressional, legislative and local tickets
which represent the couse of good gov
ernment. Its friends haveevery incen
tive to push forward to the victory
which certainly awaits them on the 4th
Let there be no laggards in the
ranks. Forward along the whole line.

and when the new physician, Dr. Clar

a quarrel ensued, and a broken engage

Since that time, Dr. Viyian had con

Richard, authoritatively, "and let me

And half reluctantly, though with a
feeling of relief in her heart, Beulah al
lowed him to lift her into the wagon,
where he hid already placed her trunk,
and they drove away.
Peter Fogg was as good as his word,
and before many days he drove into
town with his lumbering farm-wagon
filled with the big piano, the handsome
pictures, and Aunt Dorinda's trunk,
containing her "best clothes."

The honeysuckle and madeira vines
clustering about the old Barrymore
farm-house were full of bloom, and
the scented petals of a tall cinnamon
rose-bush were dropping lightly ou
Beulah's nut-brown curls, as she sat
on the south porch with a basket of
yellow September peaches beside her.
"Dick is so fond of peaches and
cream," commented Buhih to herself,
as she peeled and sliced the ripe, gold
en-hued fruit. "He shall have them
every day while they last."
Just then the sound of wagon-wheels
was heard in the lane.

wagon came in view. "Kin you make

PAYING CATTLE RANCHES.
Possessions ot* a Cattle King in
Wonderful Success of a Young
Frenchman in an Immense
A Miles City, Montana,letter to the
New York Times tells about the thriv
ing cattle trade of the northwest. The
writer says :
The Marquis de Mores is a great
cattle king of this region, and besides
having a largt amount of capital ready
at hand to invest in ranches, cattle,
sheep, or horses, es the fancy strikes
him, is the possessor of an unusual a
mount of nerve,good sense, and pluck,
to back up whatever he undertakes to
do. lie is the son-in-law of Baron von
Hoffman, who is now in Miles City
making arrangements for the building
of slaughter and cold storage houses
here. The Marquis is uot more than
26 years of age,and first landed on our
shore in August, 1882 iu the city of
New York. Before long he became
attracted by the stories of the new
country along the Northern Pacific
Railroad, and came out to inspect for
himself. The prospect pleased him,
and he bought six square miles of laud
where the Northern Pacific crosses the
Little Missouri River. Here he laid
the foundations of a city. The new
metropolis was pitched in the very
worst spot on the North American
continent—so many wise men said—
in the midst of bad lands and extinct
volcanoes ; a country always shunned
by the red men, and said, by people
who knew all about it, to be unfit for
agriculture, grazing, or anything else.
Notwithstanding the warnings and
predictions ot disaster which were gra
tuitously poured in from all sides for
his benefit, the Marquis went right on
with the work he had mapped out. On
April 1, 1883, he pitched a tent on the
banks of the Little Muddy, which was
the commencement of building opera
tions. He broke a bottle of wiue over
the canvass house and iron tent pins
that held it in place and christened the
the embryo city Medora, in honor of
his wife. Herds of cattle and flocks
of sheep were purchased,and cowboys
were employed to mind them. The
Marquis turned his animals loose a
mong the bad lands to pick up a living
as best they could, sent for his wife to
come from her luxurious eastern home
to the little wild western city named
in her honor, settled down on one of
his ranches hid away among the
buttes in the midst of his new posses
sions, and soon became established as
a cotton and wool grower.
The enterprising young Frenchman
was secure from interference and mo
lestation of any kind so long as he
went about his business in his own pe
culiar style, without attaining success
in any of his undertakings. Just as
soon, however, as it begun to draw
upon the bewildered miuds of the as
tonished natives round about that the
foreigner was not so crazy after all,
but that he was in reality to make a
fortune out of the bad lands and ex
tinct volcanoes which they had consid
ered worthless,there was a general up
rising of the "terrors of the bad lands"
and other big men of the country to
try to put a stop to the bold proceed
ing. The Marquis was not to be
frightened. Although his opponents,
with a great deal of bluster, appeared
in force and presented innumerable 16
pound Spencer rifles and other deadly
weapons to scare him out of his wits
and drive him from the country,he re
ceived them with the choicest lan-

ping of dressed beaves to Chicago.
The Marquis' original experiment
has grown into a wonderful business
of surprising magnitude. He has a
dozen or more ranches scattered all
through the bad lands; abattoirs have
been built at Helena, Billings, Bul
locks, Miles City, and Medora, and re
frigerators at Portland, Jfandam,Far
go, St. Paul, Brainerd,Duluth,Grang
er,and Winnipeg. The slaughter house
now in erection at Me dora will be
when completed one of the largest of
the kind in the world. It will be built
entirely of brick,and will contain room
for killing and cooling of 500 cattle a
day. At present about 200 lead are
killed a day, and emdloyment is given
to 150 men for that purpose. The
business will be increased still further
by the addition of glue factories, tan
neries, and horn works, and by the in
vestment of nearly $1,000,000 this
year in sheep alone. Besides his
sheep and cattle venture De Mo res has
30.000 acres of wheat lands near Bis
mark, Dakota, and over 50,000 acres
in the bad land, which are used for
grazing purposes alone. He now
contemplates the building of a dairy
on a grand scale for the exportation of
butter, cheese, etc., and is already en
gaged in transporting in refrigerator
cars fresh salmon from Portland Ore-1
gon, to New York City. It is said
that a carload of salmon costs S9OO in
Portland and sells for S3OOO in New
York. The total expenees in handling
shipping, etc., are $llOO, leaving a
clear profit of SIOOO per car. Taking
his various ventures into account, the
Marquis promises before many years to
become one of the great millionaires of

A Land Where There are no Elope
Elopements are not believed in in Lap
land, for if a man marries a maid with
out her parents' consent the penalty is
death. When a young man has formed
an attachment to a female, the fashion
is to appoint their friends to meet, to
behold the young parties run a race to
gether. The maid is allowed in starting
the adyantage of a third part of race,so
that it is impossible, except willing of
herself, that she should be overtaken.
If a maid overruns her suitor the mat
ter is ended; he must never have her, it
being penal for the man to renew the
motion for marriage. But if the virgin
has an affection for him,though at first
she runs hard to try the truth of his
loye, she wilßwithout Atlauta's golden
balls to retard her speed) pretend to
meet some casuality, and voluntarily
halt before she comes to the mark or
end of the race. Thus none are compell
ed to marry against their wishes, and
this is the cause thatm this poor coun
try the married people are richer in their
contentment than in other lands, where
so many forced matches make feigned
love aud cause real unhappiness.
