the uuspieeH of the national association
of Democratic clubs, tile laid anniver

the rounder of the Democratic party,
was celebrated today at Montleello,
where the author of the leolaratioti of
independence lived and died.

The formal proceedings begun with
an address by the Hon. Chattncey F.

principle of Democracy was "absolute
acquiescence In the decisions of the
majority" was heartily applauded.
GOV. Rt'SHELLS SPEECH.
Ki--f lovei-nor IMissell of Massachu
setts, was received by the crowd with !
ringing cheers. His many patriotic al
lusions and points were rapturously
applauded. Referring to the financial
question of the day, Mr. Russell said:
To Jefferson It could never be an Issue
between Colorado and WhII street, or be
tween a debtor or a creditor class. His
broad Democracy abhorred geographical
and class division. With true patriotism
he would ask. where lie the honor and
credit of our common country, where rest
the Interests of our whole people? For
one I believe that our country's honor
demands scrupulous fidelity to her plight
eil word, honest puyment of her obliga
tions, und that the people's Interest Is best
served by strictly upholiung here tne mon
etary standard of the civilized world. Free
coinage of sliver, or Its compulsory pur
chases, or any compromise legislation by
us in that direction in my Judgment is dis
tinctly class legislation, which would un
settle business, impair credit, reduce alt
savings and the value or all wages, and
whose Injurious results no man can meas
ure. We are still ready. a we ttlwnys
have been to confer with other nations
mum any sound system of International
bimetallism. I have misunderstood thu
aching of Jefferson, and the traditions
and principles of our party If thuy do not
support this view, and sustain a Demo-
emtio administration In Its resolute en
forcement of it. With jerrerson truth
never lay in compromise of pr.nciple, nor
success in evasion or responsibility. -or
will they with us. Let us leave compro
mise und expediency to the Itepublican
party, which Is ever ready to trim and
vat e. to narmomze lis warring lacuuns.
Let us, II' need be through discussion and
agitation, tlnd the truth, bravely assert
it, und trust our cause to the conscience
and patriotism :i the .people.
The secret a. Jefferson s power and lean-
ershlp was bis steadfastness to principle.
His courage, nis lann, nis resolute lesu-
ershlp have guided the lntest, as they did
the ilrsl or the ucmocraiie administra
tions, which with vigor and patriotism
have made dominant the wishes, the
rights and the welfare of the whole pco-
e. Whatever the storm, whutever tne
gusts of passion or of prejudice, however
threatening tne ciouus 01 panic ami dis
aster which have hung over all nations,
our president has kept the rudder true.
To no political flaw has he trimmed sail.
In no stress has lie lost courage or abun-
loneil principle. There Is Inspiration for
us In the leadership of Jefferson and
Cleveland. It nerves us to stand fast to
principle, to put uside expediency and
oinpruinisc, ami Willi courage ami nuei-
Itv lo gieet all pending issues. So shall
we merit and win success, and hold the
conlideiice of the country as have III the
paitl. We neeil not tear neieiu. ve met

should fear the discredit of sacrificing
prim Iple to expediency, or of turning
aside from the safe course which Jeffer

When Senator Daniel, of irginia
nrose to speak, his popularity in his
nutlve state was made plainly apparent
by the enthuslusm with which he was
received. He pictured to his uudience
in eloquent periods the prominent trails

S10NATOK DANIKI.'S It K MARKS.
After his sulojsy of Jefferson had,
been exhausted. Senator Daniel re
ferred to the speech of Governor Itus
scll and said he admired that nddress
so much that he disliked to dissent
Hum it on .anything. He must be ex
cused if he fulled to see anything In
Jefferson's teachings which summoned
us to abandon the bimetallic monetury
system which Jefferson himself helped
to establish. He concurred with Gov
ernor Kusscll that Jefferson would
never have made an Issue between
Colorado and Wall street, or between
n debtor and a creditor class, or upon
any geographicul division, but he as
serted that It wus the Republican par
ty, nnd neither Jefferson nor the putty
of Jefferson that did that very thing in
1873 in stripping silver of Its equal
coinage right with gold: that it was
Wall street and Lombard street that
were the agressors, not Colorado nor
the west: not the debtor class. Hut,
sold the senator In closing this part of
his speech, I am not going to stay at
odds with our distinguished friend at
the grave of Jefferson. There was one
thing that Jefferson sal I about money
which we will concur in, nnd that is
"that one warm thought is worth more
than money." and giving him the warm
thoughts that one . upon his native
hearth should feel for an honored
guest, I would venture to say o him. as
Kalstaff said to Prince Henry: "No
more of that, Hal, and thou lovest me."
Indeed, we will have here today the
free coinage-of warm thoughts on the
double standard of Massachusetts and
Virginia, and I am willing to ampll'y
the code of our Democratic comrade,
Tim Campbell, of New York, and tcir
f'.r today at least: "Neither money

Tom I- Johnson Points Out the F.vlls of

Triumphs at Cntninj Elections.
Brooklyn, N. Y.. April 13. Two hun
dred Hrooklyn Dimocrats celebrated
Jefferson's birthday tonight at the ban
quet of the Young Men's Democratic
club, ut the Hole St. George. The
chief sxakir was ex-Congressman
Tom I.. Johns in, of Cleveland, who re
sponded to the toast, "Democratic duty
in l.x:i." President William Pitt Fer
guson in Introducing Mr. Johnson, de
clared that In Tom 1.. Johnson, the
Democratic pace-maker of 1892, the
Democracy might tlnd the man who
could win in IxiiB. The sentiment was
enthusiastically cheered. Mr. John
son's speech, in part, was as follows:
In lS'.M! we are likely to be beaten.
Strartdlfrig' "certainly cannot save us. It
can only add disgrace to defeat.
"Hitter experience' should teach us.
In 18W2 we won a victory as great as
JcfTersojt won in 1S01. In 1S6 the Dem
ocratic party Is broken, discrediting
nnd'degraded. The reason Is plain. In
1S92 we asked for power that we might
kill protection, abolish trusts, reduce
taxation. We were given the power.
How Is It 1S9? What protected ring
hus been even weakened: what trust
abolished: what burden removed?' In
the hands of a Democratic administra
tion, the money power that Jefferson
feared has been strengthened at. every
point; in a time of peace the monstrous
expenses of government are being paid
by issuing bunds and wages are lower
nnd times harder than in 1NH2 (ap
plause). If these are fruits of Democracy what
wonder that the people turn to the
"our victory of 1892 was a powerful
verdict against McKinleylsin: yet Mc
Klnley himself seems certain to be the
Kepu'dlcnn nominee this year and to
lie triumphantly elected. Hut the mass
es believe in McKlnleyism no more to
day I han they did In .1892. The strength
of McKlnley Is at bottom a revolt
ugalnst the Republican machine and
Democratic misrule make no mistake.
The principles of Jefferson are not dead.
Though denied by oftlclnl Democracy
they are reviving In the hearts of the
people. They are coming to the front
steadily and swiftly In the quiet, but
Irreslstable growth of the single tax
Idea. They are to be seen in the
strength of the free silver movement. In
, ttu. vague demands of populism.
every choice of popular discontent
even in the Republican ranks. ,
"Vet the money question, important
as it is, Is trivial us compared to the
question of taxation. This is the vital
question. It won here that. we made the
fatal mistake of 18M2. Let us not repeat
It In IN!HS. There Is no use for two pro
tectionists parties. If the Democratic
pai!ly would -escHrie-not merely defeat -but
damnation. It must declare for the
Jefferson principle of free trade. Not
free trade, but free trade."

An American Schooner Held I'p by a
Columbian Gunboat t ad Poroad to
Return to Colon.
Panama, April 13. The correspond
ent of the Star and Herald at Colon
sends the following to that Journal
under date of April 1: v "
"On March 31 the Columbian gun
boat, General Cordova, left this port
for Porto Hello, where, according to
rumor, there was a vessel which had
contravened the laws of the republic.
About 9 p. m. of the same day a vessel
anchored In this port, the General Cor
dova also anchoring at the same time.
Last night I had an Interview with the
captain of the sailing vessel, and he
gives his name as Harris and that of
the vessel as George Whltford. He
showed me his papers, which ure made
out on stamped paper, signed by a Mr,
Nleto. The papers are dated March 31,
and showed that she sailed on that date
for Cartagena with fton.OOD cocoanuts
and ten tons of ivory nuts ns ballast.
"Captain Harris Informed me thnt
the gunboat overhauled him about
seven or eight miles from the coast,
and Immediately ordered him to return
to Colon, but Captain Harris told him
that he could not return, as he was dis
patched from Porto Hello to Cartagena,
und accordingly showed the Whltford's
papers to the captain of the Cordova,
who refused to examine them, saying
thnt he should return to Colon. As
Captain Harris wanted to know the
cause of such proceedings and also
wanted to proceed on his voyage, he
said that he would allow the captain of
the Cordova to search his vessel; but
he was Intimidated and given fifteen
minutes to decide what he would do,
and if he did not comply with the In
structions given, his ship would be
sunk. With such a menace he bud to
obey nnd return. On arriving ut Colon
a guard of eight soldiers wus put on
"The guard, however, was removed
on April 2, after the American consul
had notified the governor that unless
the vessel was immediately released,
an American man-of-war would le

The appointment of a successor to
Consul General Williams caused no sur
prise in nldciul circles us it has long
been known that Wllllums was anxious
to retire from his position. When Mr.
Williams visited the United States lust
year he tendered his resignation, but
was persuaded to remain in office on
account of the then threatened serious
ness of Cuban affairs. Mr. Willluins
had become obnoxious to the Spanish
authorities in Havana on account of his
vigorous manner of caring for the in
terests of this government and It was
reported that he and Captain General
Campos had a personal quarrel in which
strong words were used. In March last,
Mr. Williams renewed the expression
of his desire to relinquish the post and
it is said that he Anally agreed to re
main until a successor was appointed
or until end of the open season, that is
until the present time. It has been
claimed that one of the causes why
Mr. Williams did not have the good
will of the Spaniards was that his
brother-in-law managed from the Uni
ted States a West Indian express com
pany suspected of carrying on an un
derground trade with the Insurgents.

Washington, April 13. RepresT
tlve Aldrlch, of Illinois, gives ou1
statement tonight of Mr. Reei
strength ns compared with thnt of oth
er candidates, and says: "I think the
time has come to lot the country know
something about the actual standing
of Mr. Reed In this canvass. His
friends have devoted themselves thus
far to electing Reed delegates rather
than to making claims which they can
not substantiate. This table, which I
submit Is mode up from reliable Infor
mation furnished by delegates and in
some cases by chairmen of conven
tions. To be sure, there are contests
in several places where It would be un
fair to prejudge the action of the con
vention. For Instance, the entire Mis
sissippi delegation will be contested,
und we place them In the doubtful col
umn. The only 'speculation' In this
list Is in the doubtful column. 'News
paper rumors' do not figure In It all.
There Is no trouble about getting the
names of delegates, alternates and con
testants; this Is all a matter of record
and an open page. The table given out
by McKlnlcy's friends on Monday in
cludes the nnelected delegates from
Ohio and Indiana. As well might we
include the nnelected delegates from
Maine and other states which are for
Reed, but this would stamp such an
estimate as fraudulent."
