West Side Enthusiasm Unrestrained
for Republican Principles.
CHEERS WERE LONG AND LOUD
Sleeting in St. David's Hull Gave Signs of
Party Succcss-Mastcrf ul Speeches
of Marriott Itrosius and
Of all the political meetings of any
party during the present campaign, the
rally under the auspices of the West
Side Republican club In St. David's
hall last night will rank among the
most enthusiastic and completely satis
factory. It was a grand meeting not only from
a general standpoint, but because it of
fered an opportunity for men of all po
litical faiths to hear that famous ora
tor Marriott Broslus, present congress
man from the Lancaster county dis
trict. For more than an hour he kept
the hall ringing with shouts and
tumultuous applause by one of the most
masterly, concise and above all patri
otic speeches, delivered In this section
In recent years. A generous sprinkling
of Democrats considered In connection
with Mr. Broslus' effort cannot but
prove favorable on election day.
W. Guylord Thomas and the stirring
and eloquent A. J. Colborn furnished
the Introductory and closing speeches
respectively . Not the least pleasant
features was the band and vocal music
rendered by Bauer's musicians and the
No Vacant Chairs.
When the president of the club, Dr.
W. A. Paine, formally opened the meet
ing very few chairs In the large hall
were unoccupied and the last available
space was occupied by a party of ladies
during the first hour of the meeting.
Their interest In Republicanism called
forth hearty applause as they took
their seats. In the auditorium were
D. W. Powell, D. M. Jones, Will,
lam K. Williams, T. H. Dale, W. A.
Payne, Eben J. Davies, William S.
Jones, Alfred Godshall, Thomas Hop
kins, William Penn Morgan, Thomas
Lowry, Rev. E. R. Lewis, Benjamin
Reynolds, William Frlnk, George Be
nore, Isaac Richards, Daniel Williams,
Myron Evans, John B. Williams, W. W.
Davis, H. F. Ferber and many other
well known Republicans. On and near
the platform were the following Re
publican candidates: Joseph A. Scran
ton, for congress; R. W. Archbald, for
Judge; Frank II. demons, for sheriff;
Thomas D. Davies, for treasurer; John
H. Thomas, for clerk of the courts;
John R. Jones, for district attorney;
Charles Heuster, for recorder of deeds;
C. E. Pryor, for prothonotary; W. S.
Hopkins, for register of wills; James C.
Vnughan, for senator from the Twen
tieth district; John K. Farr, for repre
sentative from the First district.
W. Gaylord Thomas during his ad
dress gave a lucid illustration of the
benefits of the protective system and
demonstrated the thrift of the nation
under tariff provisions. He then ar
gued why the prosperity would return
with a Republican house and speaker
to undo the Wilson bill wrong.
The magnetic speech of Congressman
Broslus left but little in the minds of
the auditory which could in reason be
applied in the support of free trade or
other perquisite of Democratic misrule.
The dlstlnguiched orator said In sub
stance: Address of Mr. Broslus.
Your chairman severely handi
capped me by Introducing- me as a con
gressman, but in spite of all which has
been said of us there are some who
think well of us. I phall throw myself
upon your generous Indulgence.
'In Pennsylvania there have been
two prominent reasons for Republican
success: First young men have found
affiliations with the party and have
remained true1 to its principles In a
great measure because of the great
prospects offered them in Its ranks;
second, Its standard bearers have al
ways been happily selected for their
honor and sterling ability. We can con
fide in them the state administration
and the future glory of the party as
We may learn some things from
books and teachers; but the object les
son of the past eighteen months Is
greater in Its scope and more useful

"In 1S92, free from scandal and with
respect lor the nag at homo and abroad,
we commanded the attention of the civ
ilized world. Today you see working-
men of America denied the privilege of

babies crying for sustenance; you saw
all this in a land of plenty. Do you re

"What a spectacle! The house dis

Industry of New York, the pottery in
dustry of New Jersey must be protected
before we support the bill, said Senator
Murphy and Senator Jones, and many
other senators said tne same tning."
Mr. Broslus then quoted the famous
prophesy of James G. Blaine to the ef
fect that any reductive change from
protective principles would bring want
to the door of the laboring man, silence
and Idleness in the mills, and nn ab
solute and lasting crippling of Ameri
"How has that prophecy been ful
filled," continued Mr. Broslus. "If the
tears of women and children could
speak it would be a sufficient answer.

and railroads would all be In the same
condition as the state of Georgia if it

tailed embellishments. We declared
our choice and confidence In protection

impressive allusions to the Hawaiian,

of themselves plead for Republican ad
In a manner and eloquence, and with
a reasoning which could not be separ
ated from succesful result, Attorney A,
J. Colborn presented the names and
qualifications of the Republican count
candidates. Each mention of the Indi
viduals on the ticket wag presented
with the peculiar weight and force
which accompany Mr. Colborn'fc
speeches. He was encournged in his
utterances by the sympathy and spon
taniety of the audience, who showed
their feeling by frequent and long out
bursts of applause. Mr. Colborn's
speech furnished a happy ending to
what was designated as happy a meet
ing as its promoters had hoped for. .
