Oovenior 11111 whirled through Indiana
ntnld n cyclone of enthusiasm. Tlio roads
wero well nigh Impassnblo the first day,
but that did not deter tho Ilooslers from
assembling nt every station from Clncln.
natl to Indianapolis, from turning outand
cheering him on his way. Old raon in
hundreds wcro on hand In tho drenching
ralu and gavo.tho governor au Impression
of old tltno Democrntlo enthusiasm that
he Is not likely to forget.
Tho first demonstration occurred at
Lawrenceburg, Just over tho statollne,
in Congressman Holman'a district, whero
over 1,000 workmen rushed to tho track
and gave threo cheers for tho popular
governor of tho greatest stnto lu tho
Union. Tho governor was breakfasting
at tho tlmo, but ho stopped to tho rear
platform and waived his acknowledg
ments. At Aurora, twcnty-llvo railos
from Cincinnati, a similar demonstration
occurred. At North Vernon the people
wero out In force and cries were nindo for
a speech. Tho governor good tint n redly
complied, - When ho stepped to tho plat
form ho was cheered to tho echo.
"I am sorry, my friends, Mild ho. that
this weather Is so Inclement, but I pro
sume it is one of tho consequences of n
high protective tariff. I seo thnt Mr.
Blaine lu his public speeches proclaims
that wo owo overythlng to tho tariff, nnd
I presume this stoim comos In under tho
At Seymour tho party was joined by
Governor Gray, of Indiana. Tito meeting
between tho governors of tho -two great
doubtful states was interesting. Gover
nor Gray Is a lino looking man, with a
dignified presence. It was their first
mooting. They shook hands cordially,
sat down together and questioned each
other eagerly about tho chances of tho
national ticket In tholr respectlvo states.
Governor Gray was very much gratified
with Governor mil's report from Now
York. Ho was a little concerned about
tho triangular fight In Now York city, and
was curious to know Governor Hill's opin
ion as to the result. Governor Hill as
sured him that tho Democrats of the coun
try need have no fear as to tho conse
quences of the Democratic split In New
York city, promising hlm that the Demo
cratic vote there would be drawn out to
its full quota. Governor Gray said the
Democrats In Indiana were just as much
concerned for tho result In New York as
ho. was convinced tho Democrats In New
York wero concorned about tho result lu
Indiana. Governor Gray sold the changes
in tho situation in his stato iu tho last
ten days wero such as to glvo tho Demo
crats every confidenco of putting Indiana
In the column for Cloveland nnd Thurman.
When tho train reached Mitchell a great
crowd had gathered at tho station. There
was some little delay In getting Governor
Hill out of his car. Tho Hooslor crowd
allowed their enthusiasm to get ahead of
them and could hardly bo restrained from
Jnmplng aboard and dragging out Gover
nor Hill by sheer force. When he and Gov
ernor Gray appeared togother a tumultuous
yell broke forth that lasted several min
utes. The carriage that was to convey
Governor Hill was swathed in red, whito
and blue. Tho horses boro long stream
ers, and the spokes and hubs of tho wheels
wero done up lu red, white and blue. So
groat was the tumult that the span of
white horses becamo very obstreperous
and plunged In a manner rather unpleas
ant. A procession was formed, which pro
ceeded to Chick's Wood, where the speeches
wero to be delivered.
Tho grove covers about forty acres.
Parked in it wero innumerable caravan
saries bolonglng to farmers who had
driven in from six to fifteen miles. Horses
were tlod to trees and fences, and in the
hollow where the grand stand was erected
were congregated about five thousand
people. Hard by the platform was a
wagonof mighty proportions drawn by
twouty snow whito horsos. In the wagon
were fifty young gtrls dressed in red caps,
blue bodices and whito skirts. Hundreds
of womon wore bandanna hats and many
of them1 bandanna skirts.
It was a proud moment in tho history
of Mitchell when Governor Hill and Gov
ernor Gray, with eloquent Georgo Raines,
Judge Holman ana Gen. Porter, our
adjutant general, came into the grounds.
Mitchell had never before seen togother
two such Democratic govornors, possible
candidates for tho presidency a year ago,
probablo candidates for tho presidency
nnd vice presidency four years from now.
"Wo would liavo had 40,000 people
here today," said Judgo Holman, "if wo
had had pleasant weather," but In Bplto
of it all the gathering was remarknblo.
Af tor tho speeches tho party was driven
back to the special train for Seymour.
Governor Gray and Judgo nolman accom
panied Governor Hill. When they
leached Seymour tho vicinity of the sta
tion was packed with a surging mass of
humanity. Govornor Gray escorted Gov
ernor Hill to Jordan's hotel, where Gover
nor Hill made an address from the balcony
In tho pouring rain. Cheers followed
Tho party arrived at Indianapolis at 8
O'clock. Over B,000 ardent Democrats
wero In the vicinity of tho station, and
when tho two governors appeared o
mighty cheer wont up from 0,000 throats
as if from one.- An nlslo was cleared
through the crowd for tho two governors,
who wero followed by Judgo Holman,
Gen. Porter, Col. AIcEwan, Mr. Whitney,
Secretary of Stato Cook, Tho World's
special correspondent. Col. Jim Jones, Mr.
Julian Ralph, Senator Raines and Dr.
Hunter. The famous Hendricks club
escorted tho party to Tomllnson's hall.
Tho vicinity of tho hall was Jammed, but
tho crowd cheerily opened a way for tho
Illustrious leaders. When they reached
tho stage they found nearly 0,000 people
in the hall waiting for them.
Governor Gray Introduced Governor
Hill in dead Blleuce, but tho moment he
aroso a yell was raised that was prolonged
nine minutes' by tho'watch. Men raised
tholr high white hats on sticks and gave
themselves up to yells. Hundreds of
ladles waved bandannas and shouted till
their throats wcro parched. Indiana Cor.

Typical Republican Friend ot the Work;
This Is an educational campaign, tndoed,
not only as relates to tho tariff for tho
protection of monopolists, but In n variety
of ways. Tho wage earner, to whom ar
guments aro being addressed by both par
ties, is learning a number of things hith
erto unsuspected by him as having any
oxlstenco In the universe.
He Is learning, for the first tlmo In his
lifo, that his employer's sole object and
ambition in llfo Is to pay him high wages.
Heretofore ho has been compelled to or
ganize, to mako "scales" and to threaten
strikes In order to make his nmploycr pay
him living compensation. Now the em
ployer Is urging hlm to vote tho Republi
can ticket, In order to enablo tho good
man to pay high wages.
That his InteroBts and hU employer's
ought' to be one he has known for s6mo
time, but not until now has he discovered
that they are. To toll tho truth, however,
ho is so suspicious of his employer's good
Intentions toward him that ho Is con
vinced that he can most likely benefit
ltlmsolf by doing tho very revorso of wlmt
his employer asks of him. If tho Buccess
of tho Democratlo ticket roally involved
low wages, as tho employer tells him It
must, ho knows that the employer would
be for It, not agalust it. Ho has learned
that much, any way.
Now, it has seemed clever to the ostuto
persons who ore conducting the Republi
can campaign, to send out to men who
employ numerous workmen envelopes
covered with printed arguments in favor
of tho Republican candidates, in which to
pay off their hands. Tho employers In
largo numbers have adopted this cheap
nnd easy method of preaching tho gospel
of monopolies. Tho amount of nnxlety
exhibited for tho "working classes" by
these gentlemen, measured by tho fervor
of their appeals to vote ngalust Democ
racy, would touch the heart of tho Whlto
chapel murdoror if he could1 be brought to
contemplate it aright. It is so genuine,
bo sincere, so consistent with tho general
conduct of theso gentry that nobody can
reasonably affect to doubt It.
For example, there Is the firm of Tim
Walerstoln & Co., of Troy, in this stato,
which manufactures shirts, collars and
cuffs on a largo scale. It Is not known
precisely how much It pays Its sewing
womon for a shirt, bnt slnco trousers aro
made nt the rato of 10 cdhts a dozen in
Now York wo are not lncllnod to believe
that shirt making Is very much more
profitable In Troy. However that may bo,
the firm is deeply concerned lest the
"Democratic tariff'' of 42 per cent, should
reduco tho princely wages of Its shirt
makers, and is putting forth every effort
to havo that pauperizing reduction of 5
per cont. repudiated. That is thought
ful; it ought to be acknowledged
gratefully. But slnco tliero Is no way of
protecting tho laundry workers of tho
United States against the pauper laun
dresses of Europo, why do not Messrs.
Walerstein & Co. employ freo labor to
starch and Iron their shirts, collars and
cuffs? If they aro so profoundly Inter
ested In tho welfare of tho industrial
utassos why do they send tholr goods to
tho Sing Sing stato prison to bo done npt
Perhaps thoy thought that this little
business of theirs would not be found
out; that thoy can poso as dovoted friends
of tho American workingman and still got
their work done at minimum prices by
convicts without being called on for an
explanation. But thoy cannot. Their
miserable hypocrisy is engraved for all
tlmo on tho archives of tho stato, in
memoranda summed up in tho following
Tim TValersteln & Co., to the State ot Now York,
t3 laundry work In Stato Prison at Sing
Stag, from Nov. 18S0 to July 1888 $78,803
If thoso gentlemen really lovo the
American workingman as thoy profess to
do, why did thoy not pay out this bill of
$78,293 for laundry work to freo and
honest American' worklugmen and work
ing women t Tho answer Is that these
gentlemen, like the knaves ot the ware
house, steel, coal, sugar nnd other trusts,
hato the American workingman and aro
always on the lookout to plunder and do
celve him. Their solicitude for his wel
fare is a fraud. And tho wago earner has
at last learned that fact. Brooklyn

Tho Democracy ought to havo nothing
to fear from tho Immense increment of
suffrage. Tho causo of Democracy Is tho
causo of tho people. It is a c&uso which,
when rightly understood, commends Itself
to overy man whoso brain Is tho seat of
thought nnd whoso hands aro the forces
of his self support. Tho national admin
istration hns givon to the country the fact
and example of good government. The
success of such a good causo In the na
tion Is bound up In tho success of tho
Democracy in the stato of New York. In
the main, tho executive government of
this, state has beon well aaminlstered in
Democratlo hands. Mistakes have been
mado and aro admitted. The mistakes
will bo rectified, If tho party bo ro
intrustod with power. Tho Democracy
always acknowledges, In tho long run, tho
demands of Its reform elements. Locally,

Tho Republican calculation seems to be
something llko this; Tho total voto of
New York city will be on Nov, 0 about
W50.000. Allowing 10,000 of this for tho
vote of tho Labor and Prohibition candi

will remain 140,000 Tor the Democrat.
That wbuld mako Cleveland's plurality in
New York city only 40,000, or, after ad
ding 10,000 which tho Republican mana
gers In Brooklyn call the maximum plu

a Cleveland1 plurality of but 60,000 to bo

fifty-eight counties of tho Btato. In 1884.

overcoming a Domocratlo plurality of 08,

Unfortunately for the Republicans, the

four years in raising their plurality la
New York and Kings from 46,740 In 1868
to 02,271 in 1887. If tho plurality of 1888
Is to exceed that of 1887 by Just as much

bo a Cloveland plurality of 74,000 to be

It docs seem singular to Democrats,
and It must strlko the Republican mind
much more forcibly, that the great talent
of tho G. O. V. has lain dormant during
this battlo, and that only socond rato and
fourth rato speakers have beon sent out.
It is a mighty poor vlow of tho situation
for theso Republicans.
With only Blalno In tho field, it makes
a very sorry appearance And in reference
to this particular Individual, an old Stal
wart, of tho spirit of Roscoo Conkllng
stripe, exclaimed: "It would have been a
good thing If tho Chlneso wall ho likes so
well had been bnllt lu tho center of tho
Atlautlo before Blaine got back." This is
a very common exclamation among tho
old Stalwarts. The feeling ncnlnst Blalno
Is just as Intense today as It was four
years ago, and the fear that Blaine is
likely to bo at the bead of Harrison's gov-
mment, in tho event of tho lattor'a elec
tion, will force many of thom Into tho
Democratlo camp In the present campaign.
The President's Consistency.
The enemies of tho president speak of
his retaliation message as inconsistent
with his previous attitude. It was nothing
of tho sort. To havo suggested retaliation
while a treaty was pending for tho settle
ment of tho fcheries dispute would have
been Indefensible. When tho treaty was
rejected by tho senate the president im
mediately turned to tho only alternative
t hat wus left. But in his message the
president took occasion to say that ho still
believed the treaty to be a basis of settlo
mont fair and just for both countries.

Mr. James G. Blalno has at last dlecov-
that trusts aro not by any mcatls the
larmlcas affairs which ho declared them
to bo a few weeksjigo, when, fresh from
tho hospitalities of Carnegie and tho
splendor of Cluny Castle, ho put himself
at the head of tho party whose members
speak of him as "tho greatest combina
tion of heart and brain In the world," and
"tho objoct of our (their) undying affec
tion." lie is now persuaded that some of
thom ought to bo dealt with by the gov
ernment, and that President Cleveland
was not so much In error after all In do
nounelrur them as conspiracies against
the peopto. ThU is a chancre of mind
which shows what can bo done In tho
course of an educational campaign.
It is Interesting to note tho stages
through whloh Sir. Blaine's mind has
fas sea in Its progress toward truth on
his question. First off. it will be re
membered, ho Bcoffed ot the president and
the Democracy for finding fault with
trusts and lightly dismissed them from
iurthor notlco as private affairs. That
this would not do lie learned as oon as
it was shown to him that the effect of tho
trusts was to lncreaso tho cost of living
and diminish wages. Ho then favored us
with the announcement that, though
trusts might be objected to, gtlll thoy
were not lu any degree duo to the so
called protective tariff, and. In proof of
this, told an astonished world that Eng
land was also afflicted by similar organi
zations. It was something gained to
havo tho great man admit that they went
not good things, even If he persisted In
Ignoring the cause of them.
For a time Mr. Blaine sought to occupy
middle ground. He acknowledged im
plicitly that trusts wcro evils, and that
toleration of them In other countries was
not an adequate reason for tolerating thcra
hero, since tho European addiction to aris
tocracies and standing armies has never
been deemed a reason for setting up a
royal family and a vast military establish
ment In tho United States, but contended
that tho Btxte governments and not tho
Foderal authority ought to correct them.
That ho could not long adhere to this po
sition was clear enough to overy person
capable of consistent thought.
In tho town of Goshen, Ind., ho practi
cally abandoned all his previous pleas and
undertook to show not as In the past that
trusts were private affairs with which the
fedoral government hod nothing to do, or
which ought to bo left to the stato feov
emmonts, but wero evils for which' Dem
ocrats were largely responsible. This,
tbo reader perceives, changes the whole
character of the discussion. Tho ques
tion now Is not whether trusts ore evils,
but who is to blomo for perpetuating
them. At last Mr. Blalno is In accord
with the Democracy on the main matter,
and differs only In regard to certain facts
and persons. Ilo no longor 'asserts that
tho crime charged against his client Is no
crime, but turning round on tho accusers
he s.ivs: "Yes, a crimo has been com
mitted, but tho guilt is with the plaintiff
and not the defandant."
It Is now agreed that trusts ought to be
suppressed. What the people have to de
cide Is, to which party may tho work of
Suppressing them bo committed with most
lIke!lh"od of having justlco done. Shall
tho commission bo given to President
Cloveland, who hns from the beginning
consistently donouncod tho wrong,, or to
the representative of Mr. Blalno, who be
gan by telling the country that trusts
wero harmless, and had no word ot cen
sure for them till ho loarncd that tho
people wero resolved to crush them? To
this question the average man will be ahlo
to render all tho answer necessary.

vigorous character of his partisan argu
ments, the representative position as chief
magistrate and rcnomineo which ho oc
cuplts, and tho attention which has'been
concentrated on him both by defense and
attacks unite to render hlm ono of -tho
most conspicuous and aggressive objects
of tho pending canvass. His appearance
in Indiana ana in Illinois as an orator for
tlio party Is a tactical and gallant act, and
the reflex Influence, ot it on tho cause in
