Thousand People in the

Benjamin Harrison .addressed
a bout 5,nu0 people tonight at the Audi

In addressing his audience Gen. Har

The speaker then said that they were
there as citizens of a I'nlon established by
our fori fathers ami w ere there to claim
for themselves those rights which are left
to Ihe suites when Ihe federal constitu
1 ion was organized.
The wisdom of men, he said, never de
vised a system so perfect as that system
which our forefathers formed, by which
they committeeil to the national ' govern
ment all national concerns and referred
to the stale governments all local con
cerns. 1 regret to notice that in this cum'
paign an assault Is made upon on what I
believe to be Ihe Just constitutional pow
ers of the national government. The in
cident mil of which this grows is the out
come of the great Chicago riot.
DHKIANCH OF TICK LAW.
There Is dellatice or law, both stale and
national. Ill great organized bodies, or who
acting individually upon a mad Impulse
went through the streets of Chicago with
tire and sword, destroying property, inter
rupting ail' railroad communications.
Slopping the pussage of Culled States
mail, and the progress of commerce be
tween the states. This hud Us origin In a
railroad strike, but I believe these acts or
violence were largely. if not w holly, the acts
of Irresponsible and desperate men who
marched under Ihe red Hag of anurciiy.
The president of tile I'niled States. Mr.
Cleveland. Democrat, felt It to be Ills duty
under the constitution to use the force's
of the Culled States to open the way for
the public mails and for interstate com
merce, it was a.s plainly his duty to do
so us any duty that ever develuped upon
a public official. Does Virginia consent,
does she mean to express her consent this
fall that the mails In Virginia may be
stopped by a mob In any city of our state
and their delivery interrupted? Does Vir
ginia mean to say at tint fall election tint
she is content in the progress of her stale
that mall on the way to another slate may
be stopped by an irresponsible mob ill
any city In the land?
The president of the V'niled States is
sworn to execute the laws and Is made
commander and chief of (lie army and
navy of the l ulled Slates that he tnuy
have suitable instruments with which to
execute them. Without unnecessary vio
lence, with a restraint that was remark,
able, ihe troops of the Culled States were
simply used to push out of the way these
rioters who obstructed the progress of the
mails and of Interstate commerce.
The courts of the t'llltcil States were
appealed to and thai right is familiar to
every lawyer and every citizen, the right
of injunctions by which the courts restrain
lawless conspiracies to oppose the law
and was used by the Circuit courts or the
Culled Slates. It is essential to the life
of the Judiciary that It should have power
of punishing those who Insult its Judges or
disobey Its orders. These courts proceed
ed with the most strict conformity to law.
They proceeded upon lines famillur lo
the profession and judicial history, and
yet, the president who executed the law
by using the forces of the Culled Stales
and the courts that used their powers to
anticipate and prevent violation of law,
are both denounced by the Chicago plat
form. Continuing the speaker said that our
communities everywhere rested upon
the law and ita enforcement for their
security and that of all sections the
tooth be more Jealous to see the nower
oiVhe law preserved and Virginia es-
lany, the state that save to the
ited States that Rreat chief justice,
he speaker then declared that Sena-
Gantet had introduced and had
passed a resolution In the senate en
dorsing the act of President Cleveland
and yet he had presided over a conven
tion which denounced that very act.
Continuing on this subject, Mr. Har
Have you ever heard anything from the
candidate of the Chicaito convention? Has
he ever said in any speech he has made
that If he should be chosen president of
the I'nlteil States that he would execute
the law as .lr. Cleveland executed It?
He hps not said it, but he has accepted
every word and sentence of thp Chicago
convention and Is there In effect pledged
that If he should be president and in
New York or Chicago or any other great
center of population, a mob should lift
the red flag of anarchy and stay the
progress of your mulls, he would not in
terfere until the governor of the state
asked him to. Citizens of Virginia, what
ever may have been your party altlllutions,
are you prepared for that?
The remainder of Mr. Harrison's
speech was devoted to the discussion of
the linanciul question in its various

In Florida a ujuvernor, one Justice of

are also to be elected. There are three
complete state tickets ill the Held

Fur the chief magistracy the Demo
cratic candidate is former Governor W.
D. Hloxhni; the Republican nominee
U- K. R. Uunby, und the Populists have
named Stule Senator A. W. Weeks.
That the Deinocrullc ticket will be
elected is conceded by the leaders of
each party, the only difference being;
as lo the size of the plurality.
TICK (JKOItGIA ELECTION.
Georgia's state eloctiun is important,
from the fuct that it is the boast of the
Democratic leaders that they will roll
up for their ticket a majority which
will answer that which came from
Maine. There Is every reason to believe
that from a conservative and careful
estimute gathered from reports from
each county in the state, Governor At
kinson will receive at least 40,000 plur
ality over Seaborn A. Wright, who Is
the' Populist and Prohibition nominee.
Two years ago Governor Atkinson had
a plurality of a little over 24.000. This
year Georgia, for the first time, acts
under a general registration law.

GREAT GATHERING AT CHERBOURG
Alter a Stormy Voyage the Polar Star
Auchor in Culm Sena and the Iiu
pcrial Passengers Are Received
with Crent Enthusiasm by the
Cherbourg, Oct. D. The Cznr nnd
Czurinu arrived here from Portsmouth,
England, at 2 o'clock this afternoon
and were given a frantic ovation by the
immense crowds that hud assembled
near the Bitssln du Commerce, the
Avant port, and the quays in thut vi
cinity. Tile weather was stormy throughout
Ihe night and early this morning, uml
rain was falling heavily. This hud u
bad effect on the many beautiful deco
rations, but did not dampen the en
thusiasm of the mull It tide, which,
armed . with umbrellas, eurly sought
points of vantage from which they
could not be driven by stress of weath
er. Along the route from the Quay do
Arsenal, which fronts the eastern side
of the Avant port to the railway sta
tion, were numberless Venetian masts,
which presented a handsome sight lust
night, but which this morning looked
somewhat bedraggled after having
been exposed to the storm.
Many of them were blown tbtwn by a
heavy squall which struck during the
night, und a large force of workmen
were put at work early to replace them
as fur us possible.
Ail night long thousands of persons
of ail ages and conditions docked into
the town from all parts of the interior
and the I ruins arriving this morning
brought thousands more. The streets
were literally packed, but the crowds
were orderly und good nut tired. Every
one appeared to be anxious to show
frietidship for the great rally of France
and us the hour approached that hud
been Hxed for the Czar's arrival, fev
erish expectancy could be seen on the
faces of thousands that were close to
the water front. The eastern and west
ern jetties utid the glairs at the en
trance to the Avant port were bltick
with humanity. None but favored Indi
viduals, however, were allowed on these
places for from them the first and best
views of the approaching naval pro
cession could be seen, and the yacht
Polar Star, bearing the Czar and Czar
ina and their suites passed up to the
Quai de L'Anrien arsenal, through the
two Jetties. Large numbers of gen
darmes were everywhere placed, but
they had no difficulty in keeping order
as the crowds were perfectly tractible.
STIFF GALE WAS BLOWING.
A stiff gale was blowing outside fhe
harbor all the morning and a very high
sea was running, which triade the cross
ing of the channel a most unpleasant
experience for those not used to sea
It was recalled that the Czar was a
very good sailor, he having made a
voyage almost around the world while
he was Czarevitch, but much sym
pathy was expressed for the Czarina,
whu, In addition to being in delicate
health is unused to sea voyages. A
storm signal was Hying on the break
water, and altogether the weather con
ditions were most inauspicious.
At 8 o'clock the French Northern
squudron left the Roadsted and headed
across the chunnel fur the purpose of
meeting the Russian yachts and Hrit
ish warships accompanying them. The
squadron was reinforced by the ships
sent from Rochefort and Brest. They
all proceeded to about the middle of
the channel, where they drew up in line
and heralded the coming of the Czar.
At about noon signals on the break
water announced that the Polar Star
had been sighted, and the pent-up en
thusiasm of the crowd broke forth In a
mighty cheer. Prior to this, however,
the crowd knew the yacht was ap
proaching, for there had been faintly
heard the deep booming of the guns
from the French and Dritish warships
as they met off shore.
As the vessels approached the break
water the Polar Star was seen to be
making heavy weather of it, sometimes
pitching almost bows tinder. Despite
this, as the yacht passed into the har
bor past the breakwater the Czar was
seen standing on the bridge wrapped
In a storm proof cloak. .
AND THE BANDS PLAYED.
As the Polar Star passed in the forts
on the breakwater thundered forth an
imperial salute and the crowds ashore
broke forth In wild cheering. The war
ships passed ahead of the yacht in the
harbor und ranged themselves Into two
lines, through which the Polar Stur
steatned slow ly to the Quai de L'Anclen
arsenal followed by the Standard. As
the Polar Star passed the bunds on
French warships played the Russian
national anthem. The Russian Stand
ard was Hying at the heads of their
foremusts, and as It was broken out an
Imperial salute was tired.
On the yttal awaiting the coming of
their majesties were President Fame,
attired In evening dress, with the rib
bon of the Legion of Honor. There
were also present M. Chamel Laeoiir,
president of the senate; M. Hrisson,
president of the-Chamber of Deputies;
M. Meltne, president of the council of
ministers and minister of agriculture;
mul M. Hunotaux, minister of foreign
uM'uirs, und a large number of high
naval and military oflicers. M. Meline
wore the green decorations on the Mer
lt Agrlcoie. M. Hauutaux was attired
In diplomatic uniform. Willi the red

Huron De Mohrenheiin. Russian am

DIFFICULTY IN LANDING.
Owing to high wind and rough water
considerable difllculty was experienced
In getting the Polur Star alongside the
quay. During the muuoeuveriug to get
her in position for the landing of her
august passengers Ihe vast multitude
in the vicinity were perfectly quiet, but
when the gangway was finally In posi
tion and the Czarina stepped on to the
quay followed almost immediately af
ter by the Czar, shouts of "Long live
tlie Czar," "Long live Russlu," rent the
air and were repeated again and again.
Hats, handkerchiefs und umbrellas
were waved In the air and the crowd
shouted Itself hourse in the enthusiasm
of Its welcome to the great friend of
The rooms In the arsenal, adjoining
the landing place, that hud been pre
pared for the reception of their ma
jesties, were most handsomely decorat
ed. Shortly: after the Imperial eouale
had landed the sun broke through the
clouds and this was taken as a happy
augury. The Czar and Czarina had a
short rest before 6 o'clock, at which
hour a magnificent banquet was spread
In the dining room.
It was the original intention thut the
Imperial visitors should traverse the
streets of the city, but the unpleasant
state of the weather forbade this and
at 8 o'clock the Czarina and their
suites boarded the special train that
was waiting them at the arsenal, a
trade having been specially laid there to
and from the railway station, and start
ed for Paris. President Faure, the min
isters and other high mtlclals proceed
ed for Paris on the train on which
they traveled to Cherbourg last night.
Taken altogether the reception tu the
imperial visitors here wus one long to
lie remembered, and must have im
pressed the Czar with the great friend
ship entertained for him by the French,
not alone of the ofilcial class, but by
all the people.
Paris, Oct. R. The boulevards this
evening presented a remarkable sight.
It hud been stormy early In the duy
and Ibis caused the greatest discom
fort to the thousands of visitors who
had been unable to secure lodgings in
the city or vicinity. Towards evening
the weather that had given promise of
clearing in the early afternoon, became
line, and then the principal streets be
came fairly jammed with people.
It is estimated that there ure fully
a million strangers in the city, Tlie
crowds are remarkably orderly.
Tomorrow will be u general holiday
in honor of tlie visit of the Czar. Every
precaution lias been taken for the safe
ty of the nation's guests. The entire
route of the procession through the city
was lined with troops, who will keep
tlie line with the strictest discipline,
ltehind Ihe troops will be slutioiied
imliccmen, who will face the crowd,
thus being in a position to seize nny
seditious shunters or offenders against
Ills majesty, the Czar.
It is said that a number of known
anarchists have been expelled from the
city, w hile others who are suspected of
having anarchistic tendencies have

ly liroiight about by a change In the
tariff, have furnished them with a wel
come opportunity for influencing public
opinion by continued agitation.

ceeded in gaining a number of demn

APPEAL TO LABOR.
"Through its standard bearers tne
party now appeals to thousands who
are dissatisfied with the present condi
tion of life and the opportunities for
making a living. It calls upon those
who possess nothing to engage In a
conflict with those who own property.
It keeps up an agitation in favor of
changing the present stundard into free
and unlimited coinage of sliver in or
der to surrender the government of
the country into the hands of such ele
ments as threaten to subvert to the
very foundations, on which rest all the
interest of the wage earner, and cC
commerce, and of manufacture. Fur
thermore, it threatens, aided by Popu-listic-Anarchlstic
elements the very
foundation of our legislation, public or

"No American citizen who loves his
country can remain Indifferent and in
active in this campaign for aside from
all ethical considerations there are at
stake the Interests of the entire coun
try. In view of Importance of these
questions nnd also of the conceded gen
eral inlelligenctof the German-American
citizens of this country we believe
that as the time when our union was
in danger so they will now rush to the
rescue of our nation's honor and do oil
in their power to put an end, with one
decisive blow, to all the dangers now
threatening our country. Tills oan be
done by voting for the standard h-arers
of that party which just came out for
the gold standard. By electing Mc
Kinley and Hobart the honor of out
nation, the credit of our country can
be maintained, nil our national Insti
tutions permanently secured. By elect
ing these candidates we will show not
only to our country but to all the wo;-ld
that we are an honest people and pro
pose to remain so. The more clea.-ly
we express this purpose of ours the
more decisive the defeat of the enemies
to our national honor will become, the
more safely we may hope to crush the
silver craze now and forever."

AS TO THK COAL TRUSTS.
When vice-presidential candidate
Hobnrt's attention was called today to
a report that has recently been circu
lated in the west, to the effect that he
is president ol' Ihe hard coal trust,
which, it is alleged, has advanced the,
price of coal. Mr. Hobart said:
"Last December the Trunk Line rail
roads, located east of the Mississippi,
were called upon, tinder an agreement,
known as the Joint flattie association,
to select three arbitrators, to arbitrate
the differences, which might arise be
tween these railroads. Only trunk
lines were Included in this arbitration.
Coal roads were not Included and the
matter submitted to arbitration had
nothing to do w'ilh the coal, eoaljiro
dilction, coal tonnage, or the price of
coal, in any manner. Jorm or shape
whatever, either directly or Indirectly."
Mr. Hobart added that he had no
conei tion whatever und does not know
of Ihe existence of uny such trust, ex
cept us he has seen statements in tlie
newspapers. Mr. llanna. when asked
this afternoon what truth there was in
the report that lie had written a letter
to an intimate friend In which lie con
ceded tlie election of Bryan because
Republicans were unable to control Ihe
labor vote, saiti that tile report was ab
surd on the face of it, "I have not
written such a letter." he said, "nor
have I at any time said nnything ca
pable of such Construction. 1 have
never conceded tlie election of Mr.
Bryan and I certainly cannot concede
it now when the tide is flowing so
strongly and unmistakably in the di
rection of Republican success.
"I am confident that the men who
work, whether for salary or by the day,
will be with the Republican party in
this campaign for honesty and for
sound Inii-i-eiit dollars. Any other in
terpretation of Die attitude of the
wage-earners would be an insult to
their patriotism and their intelligence,
for they have more at stake In this
campaign than any other class of men.
I don't propose lo discuss in the news
papers our plan of campaign, but I will
say that our reports Indicate that a
great majority of the worklngnien v." Ill
be with us In this campaign."
