.' Now York, Oct. 31.
The hour fixed for the Republican
niuss meeting nt Carnegie Music hall
tonight was S o'clock, but the fact that
L. P. Morton, the. llcpublican camlitlute
for governor was to preside, combined
with the additional attraction uf ex
President Harrison ns the principal
speaker, attracted a tremendous crowd.
Which begun to assemble as early as
CoO. At 7 o'clock, when the doors
opened, there -was such a rush that in
less than live minutes the hall was filled
from top to bottom. After the hull was
full the balance of the crowd outside
pressed forward und those in front were
curried in.
On the singe the chairs were all occu
pied by three-quarters of nn hour before
the meeting opened, except the front
row, which was kept clear for the prom
inent people present. AVhen ex-ProsI-ileut
Harrison, Ievl P. Morion and
Charles W. Huekett arrived, every one
In the hall stood up und cheered. It
was fully ten minutes before the cheer
ing ceased, during the whole of which
time Messrs. Harrison and Morton were
bowing right and left.
When iulet had been restored Mr.
. Morton spoke as follows:
.Mr. .Morton's Speech.
Fellow Citizens I um honored by being
culled on to preside over this vhsI as
semblage of people of the city of New
York. 1 thank you for your cordial greet
ing and for the hearty welcome you have
extended to the soldier citizen, with
whom It was my privilege to be associat
ed in the official service a few years ugo.
It has been foreign to my Inclinations to
take part in public meetings after my
own nomination to public olllcc, 1 desire
to be judged by the record I have made,
rather than by any professions manu
factured for an occasion. If I am not
worthy to administer the greut trust
which will be committed to me, when the
will of the Itepubllcan slate convention Is
ratified bv the people, nothing I can say
will relieve the situation. The Issue he.'e
involves the power of honest men to gov
ern themselves bv honest administration of
public affairs, and while 1 should not fall
to battle for the right with all my ener
gies, 1 still prefer even now not to ob
trude upon discussions which necessarily
involve the candidates as well as prin
ciples, did I not warmly desire to stand
once more bv the side of u valued friend,
in this great anil distinguished presence.
The people are engaged in one of the
most important civic contests ever wug'd
in this countrv. The standard of vb tory
was sit u few weeks ago by .Maine In the
east and Vermont In the north, and It Is the
earnest hope of the .friends of KepuMleun
principles und the lovers of good govern
ment throughout the land that the Km
plre state will on Tuesday next indorse
these victories and ulllrm t,Uo verdict
which she herself rendered a year ago.
Because of this widespread hope and In
the earnest desire to advance Its fulllll
ment, a citizen of Indiana, resolute in war
and accomplished in the civil councils
of the nation, has come to this metropolis
to lend you the encouragement of his
salutation, und give you the ripe results
of his observation und experience. I
shall no longer detain you. and now have
the pleasure of presenting Benjamin Har
rison. The ex-presldor.t was greeted with
tumultous npplause when ho stepped
forward to. make his address. He said:
I thought T had made an Inflexible reso
lution that I would not speak In this cam
paign outside the limits of Indiana, but I
found us I often had done before in my
experience that inflexible resolutions
have been broken. 1 cannot say very
much about the lust ndinlnlslrallun und
it Is somewhat delicate for me to upeaK
about the present, liut, my f. How chl
asens. men are of little consequence In the
administration of our public ulTulrs; they
do not determine events; the important
mutter is the principle or policy that the
respective parties represent.
It Is of consequence nnd ought to be
of concern to the people of the T'nlted
Slates from St. John to l'ugel's Sound
whether the governor of the stale of New
York shall be a man of clean, personal
life, a man who illustrated in his own life
the history the virtues of blah American
citizenship, whether he shall be a man
who loves our free institutions, v-ho pre
serves the sanctity of the ballot ix and
the equality of men before the law, or
' whether he shall be n man who consorts
with those who prostitute the ballot box,
who consorts with those who degrade
public oliice and public administration.
I believe the candidate of the Kepub
llcan party, Levi 1. .Morton, Is altogether
worthy of the support of Ids fellow citi
zens and is altogether qualified for tho
high duties of governor of this great
stale. Nor do I regard this great con
test which Is being waged In the city of
New York for pure, clean, decent mu'nlc
luul government as a local Issue: the
whole country watches that great strug

Theex-presldent went on to discuss the
recent tariff legislation and created
considerable laughter by lils humorous
allusions to the munner in which the
Democratic party took up the work of
revising the tariff. "No business man "
he said, "could tell upon what basis the
tariff was to be ndjusted, there being no
forecast issued by the revisers or any
intimation of the adoption of principle.
They were as bad as the grasshopper!
the Insect almost without un objective
i point, which can never tell where it is
i going to light. It may be on a flower or
i it may be In some horse pond." Mr.
I Harrison continued at length upon this
i luck of an object.

Now York, Oct. 31. Lovers of the
picturesque are mightily Interested Just
now in the unprecedented campaign
which Is waging in the Howery congress
district. It. Is a trilateral fight, with
Tim Campbell, of Tammany fame, oc-
cupying the central position nnd John
ire Simpson and Harry Miner, of
theatrical fame, grouped around him.
It all began when Tammany threw Tim
down. This made Tim mad, und he
. went gunning for Tammany's Bcalp.
First, he tried to get a Republican
, indorsement. But there was a Repub
I Ilcan, a typical Howery' Republican.
1 wh j had set his heart upon the nomlna
il tlon, Johnnie Simpson by name, quite
as much of a character in his way as
Campbell. He is populur on tho Bow
cry, and when the Republican conven
tion met he had things all fixed. His
friends rushed his nomination through
with a vengeance, and without having
allowed the delegates a chance either to
vote or express their opinion, the chair
man, a friend of Simpson s, declared
that Johnnie had been nominated, and
that the convention was adjourned sine
Hie. But even thin did not discourage
Tim. He got together part of the Re
publican convention the next night
and had them Indorse him. Then there
was a legal quarrel to see whether Tim
or Johnnie should go on the official bal
lot us the regular Republican nominee.
First the matter went to the board of
police commissioners. Hut the commis
sioners split even, when it came to a
decision, the two. Republican commis
sioners voting for Campbell and the two
Democrats for Simpson. Then Camp
bell and Simpson went to the courts,
and here Simpson won n victory. Hut
us fast ns one Judge decided in John
nie's favor, Tim Would appeal to un-
other Judge, until after he had his case ,
thrown out of court four times in one
day he desisted. Then he got the In
dorsement of tho ("trace Democracy nnd
started his campaign.
Harry .Miner Nominated.
In the meantime the Tammany men
had met and nominated Harry Miner
of theatrical und Bowery fame. For
llfleen years Miner has had a seat In
congress in view. He has contributed
liberally to Tammany's bank account
and Tammany promised him two years
ago that in 18H4 he should be the nomi
nee. But Johnnie and Tim have raised
the cry that Harry Is a "carpet bag
ger" and does not live In the district a
verv formidable cry down on the Bow
ery for before this that district has
defeated men who tried to run for of
fice there while they lived somewhere
else. Jn Miner's case it is true. Of
late years he has lived up on Madison
avenue. In a big house on a corner. In
the days when he used to stroll along
Fifth avenue, dressed In a bright blue
frock suit, with white gaiters, a red
und white shirt, brllliantly-hued tie and
silk hat, he lived in the Bowery section.
Hut afterward he discarded part of
this attire and removed his residence
from the place where "they say such
things and they do such things."
A campaign between these three men
is like a perpetual picnic. As an offset
to the cry of "carpet bugger" Miner is
going around the district pointing the
finger of scorn at Campbell, because
Tim went to Washington to llnd a
wile, instead of taking a partner from
the Bowery. Johnnie Simpson is hold
ing barbecues and similar festivals for
hungry voters, and Tim and Harry are
making nightly tours of the Bowery,
shaking hands, slapping backs and
kissing babies. Nobody can tell how it
will all end.

Denver, Oct. SI.
Colorado has had a campaign of sur
prises. The re-election of Governor
Walte would be the most sensatlonul of all. The Populists are as
enthusiastic at the close of the cam
paign as they were at the outset. They
are funatlcal In their ussertlons that
they have carried not only the state,
but the entire west. They even now
talk of Walte for president, and declare
that he cannot be beaten.
Tom Patterson, the former dictator
of the Democratic party, Is another of
the campaign surprises. At tho outset
of this campaign he was Intolerant In
his enmity to Wiiitc. Now he is stump
ing the state in the Interest of the
ticket and speaking words of praise
for Walte. It is claimed that he does
this In the hope that with a majority
of combined Democratic nnd Populist
votes in the legislature he will be elect
ed United States senator to succeed
The Women Voters Arc Active.
Another surprise lias been the enor
mous registration made of the woman
vote. In Denver the woman vote out
numbers that of the men and on elec
tion day the. women will all go to the
polls. What the outcome will be no
one can safely predict.
Another surprise In this campaign Is
the interest shown in public meetings.
Two years ago in tho great Bllver cam
paign Republican speakers In many
places were almost mobbed when they
attempted to talk. They were reviled.
Insulted, interrupted and disturbed;
this year they are given a respectful
hearing. The Republican party In thin
state never sent out so many talkers.
Senators Wolcott und Teller huve been
compelled to travel throughout the en
tire stute, speaking often twice n day to
audiences which never before had the
pleasure of listening to them. Teller
and Wolcott huve made the campaign
upon the local Issue that Colorado must
be redeemed from Populist misrule and
Governor AValto has made a remark
able canvass. He has traveled from
the first day of his nomination, making
long speeches, often several In a day.
and never hesitating to travel at night
to save time. Everywhere the Popu
lists have received him with the honor
of a hero returning from war. He has
been carried on the shoulders of miners,
he has been drawn In cnrrlages by
howling men nnd his addresses hnv'e
been cheered to the echo. Curiosdty
has drawn mnnv to hour him i.t ....
candidate ever had more enthusiastic'!
Women tho Best Orators.
A surprising feature of the Populist
campaign Is the fact that the best
orators have been women. Tho Repub
lican party has developed no stump
speakers among the women, but It bus
found in them the most active and per
sistent workers. They have made poli
tics a social fad, and in Denver ull the
society leaders of Capitol Hill have
been active In campaign work. They
have formed cnmpuign clubs in every
precinct; they huve organized great
muss meetings where society turned
out In full arrny; they have held in
numerable afternoon receptions where
candidates and clever speakers have
told of the evils of Populism and have
applauded tho virtues of the grand old
party; they have visited from house to
house to solicit support for the party
nnd for the purpose of interesting
the Women In political affairs: anil they
have through n county organization
made the most thorough canvass of the
city ever known. This the women have
done with the aid of n single cent of
campaign money. Kquul suffrage in
Colorado has demonstrated one thing.
The candidates as a general rule have
been men of a better cluss than the
average put before the public In past
Tear of the Pair Sex.
The fear of the woman vote has made
many county conventions place better
men up for office than Is usual. The
saloonlsts declare that the entrance of
women Into the campaign hits killed
their usual business. Candidates, they
say, do not dare to work the saloons
for votes for fear that the women will
make a row.
Election day promises to bring forth
other surprises. The enormous regis
tration and the small number of pre
cincts makes it Impossible for the entire
vote of Denver to be cast during the
twelve hours that the polls are open.
Add to this the fact that the women
are supposed to lie unfamiliar with the
casting of an Australian bullot, und the
dllllculty of getting all the votes In may
be Imagined. Governor Walte has ab
solute control of the city police force,
which he can handle ns he may wish.
The sheriff is a stanch Republican, and
has a large force of deputies who may
come In conflict with the police. It has
been openly stated that If any at
tempts at intimidation are made blood
will flow.

Foster. Pa., Oct. 31.
Three employes of the Delaware, Lack
awanna und Western railroad met with
u horrible death In u collision at this)
plac about 1 o'clock this morning. The
midnight passenger from Scranton Col
lided with a coal engine about 100 yards
north of the station. The engineer of
the ctal engine, and fireman of the pas
senger engine were killed instantly, and
the fireman of the coal engine was taken
to the Moses Taylor hospital in Scran,
ton, where he died at 9 o'clock. The
dead are:

None of the passengers was injured.
The Buffalo express is one of the fast
est trains on the Lackawanna road and
left Scranton on lime, drawn by a cost
ly und monster engine known as No,

south of the station was reached and
while the train was rushing through
the darkness at lightning speed the
black hulk of a coal engine appeared
in dim outline ahead. The engine was
dushing from the south bound truck.
No Time for Jumping.
There was no time for reversing of
levers or leups for life. In less than
thrt-e seconds the passenger engine had
plunged into the side of the coalers

mentum which sent the former from
the rails and along the embankment for
a distance of fifty feet. Here it lay on
Its Side fifteen feet above the roadbed
with its wheels churning' until the
steam was shut nit by the engineer,
who escaped death by a miracle.
The coal engine was toppled over
on the south bound track with Its engl
peer pinioned beneath tho wreckage
and released from suffering by Instant
death. Fireman Scull was conscious
and able to converse with those who
bore him from the scene to be taken

From all the information obtainable
from railroad employes in this city it
Is probable that Dtivul is in hiding near

the wrecking crew, was seen at nn
home In this city lust night. He scout
ed the probability of Duval's death.
Peter Kelly, the middle brnkeman of
the coal crew, claims that he found the
crossover switch locked and set proper-
Iv for the south bound track Immediate

the only way In which the coal engine
could pass to the north bound truck
was by Jumping over the point of the
switch rail.
Duval has been several years in the
employ of the railroad and among his
fellow brakemen lins. been considered
cautious-nnd competent. They cannot
believe he was the cuuse of the acci

i:f forts of Ills Congregation to Secure a
New .Meeting 1'luvc.
By tho United Press.
Xew York, Oct. 30. Kev. Dr. T. De
Witt Tulmage is expected home on
Suturduy on the Majestic. The trustees
of the Brooklyn Tubernacle will at-
range to receive the doctor. The state
of Mrs. Talinage's health precludes any
attempt at a big reception. The doctor
was compelled to cut short his' Euro
pean trip because of his wife h Illness.
Some of the trustees were anxious to
prepare a place where Dr. Talmage
could preach upon his return, but the
doctor sent back a message requesting
that the trustees do nothing until his
return. Upon Dr. Talmage's return, the
trustees will endeavor to Induce him to
rally about him the old Tabernacle con
gregation and become their pastor, liut
It Is thought thut the doctor may deem
It necesssury to give up church work
for a while and take Mrs. Tulmage upon
a long trip for the heneflt of her health.
Another project that has found great
favor, aad which many believe will be
eventually adopted, Is that of building
a one-story church on the old taberna
cle site.
