Baltimore, Oet. 2.
THE reception which tbe Baltimore
Bnse Ball club, champion of the
United States, received on its
return home tonight surpassed
anything of tbe kiud ever attempted in
this city. And not alone to tbe city of
tfatimore was theenthnsiasm confined,
but aujoining cities and states were
largely represented in the tbroug.
ibe trip from early morning wben
the train entered the domain of Mary
land until it arrived at Camden station
this evening was one triumphal march.
It closed in a blaze of glory.
At Cumberland thousands greeted
the pennant winners and cheered them
to the echo. At Martinsburg, Hurper's
Ferry and Washington tbe soenes of
enthusiasm were repeated. At tbe cap
ital a committee from Baltimore took
churge of the champions and escorted
them to this city.. As the special train
rolled into Camden station hundreds of
track torpedoes wore exploded and
thousands of throats emitted yells of
welcome. It is safe to say that half of
tbe population of Baltimore was crowd
ed as close to tbe station as they conld
well get Those that could not get
withia sight of the station exit, were
scattered al-,sg the line of march.
The players and the committee of 300
representing tbe larger business inter
ests of the city, took carriages and led
a procession of enthusiasts and
"rooters'' through the business district
of the city, eliding at the Fifth regi
ment armory. The line was divided
into eight divisions with floats ond
decorated wagons distributed through
out. Fire works were discharged from
an enormous platform wagon in ad
vanse of the procession. Mounted po
lice and a band of musio proceded the
marshal and bis aides, mounted on
borsermck. In tbe rear of the commit
tee of 300 came tbe main group in the
show, Manager Hanlon and tbe cham
pion base ball club of the Unitsd
Tbe remaining divisions were com
posed of patriot! "rooters." Along
tbe ronte of the parade the houses
were gorgeously decorated and llluini
ated. A terrific jam of humanity was
on the streets from start to finish.
When the armory was reached there
was another special discharge of 'tire
works. Inside tbe building the com
mittee on comfort received tbe club
and lined them up for the great hand
shaking ordeal. Governor Brown,
Mayor Latrobeand other Btate and city
officials were on the platform and made
appropriate addresses.
Thousands wbo were anxious to
shake hands with the men who bad
won the pennant for Baltimore passed
through the doors. Tbe reception
lasted for nearly two hours. The club
and its officers were then escorted to
the Hotel Rennert, wbere a banquet
was given, beginning at 10 o'clock.
Among the 800 guests were the gov
ernor, several judges and the- mayor,
many clergymen and other men prom
inent in commercial and financial cir
cles. The floral decorations were very
beantiful and tbe menu card was orig
inal and elaborate.

The Repnblicansof the state of Pennsyl
vania assembled iu convention at Harris
burg last May, to define the position of tbe
party on national and state questions; tbe
recent conventions of tbe party in this
county adopted that platform.adding such
clauses as were local iu their character.
These conventions selected candidates for
the various ofllces to be filled at the com
ing election; aud the Republicans of tbe
county of Lackawanna being now assem
bled in mass meoting to take action upon
the platform and candidates, do hereby re
solve, First We enthusiastically subscribe to
tbe platform declarations of tbe several
conventions, and unanimously indorse tbe
just condemnations of tbe present na
tional administrations, executive and legis
lative, for a polioy of perQdy and dishonor,
which impoverishes the rich, pauperizes
tbe poor, undermines individuals aud com
mercial development, and, if not checked,
will squander the accumulated resources
of thirty-two years of Republican ad
ministration. Second We commend the excellent
judgment of the state convention In select
ing an experienced, able, loyal, and uni
versally respected citizen of magnificent
honesty, presence and personality, In Gen
eral Daniel 11. Hastings, to be governor of
the Kevstone state, and fearlessly honest,
zealously patriotic and thoroughly capable
citizenB for the oftices of lieuteoaut gov
ernor, auditor general, and Beoretary of
internal affairs. As the only cure for onr
national ills, and tbe surest means of re
storing publio prosperity, tbe party
throughout the state urge the election
of Republican congressman. We take
