by Hon. C. P. O'.MnlUy, Attorneys
11. A. Zimminermuu, J. M. Walker
nnd H. Vi. Lowry.
An enthusiastic Republican rally was
held last night at Mueller', hull. Pros
pect avenue and Cherry street. ThotniL
C.ritllths. president of Colonel K. II.
Ripple i lub of the Twentieth ward, wan
chairman and introduced the speakers.
Attorney F. W. Flelm was ft rut Intro
duced ami in a losjical und easy style
discussed the tariff and financial ques
tions ho that his heHrers were able to
see the fallacies of the doctrine ex
pounded by the adherents of the Chica
go I lenmcrncy. Mr. Fleltz brought out
in eloquent manner the unjust nttempt
of Mr. Hrynn and his followers to array
the mnsses against the classes.
An invitation hail been cordially pre
sented 'to William Council to come to
the rally so that the Republicans of
the Second district of the Twentieth
ward mlKht meet him and testify their
appreciation of his candidacy for con
gress. He was introduced and said
that most of them knew him as a work
er rather than a talker. He has been
busy all his life worklnjr, and as he
was coining to the hall he noticed a
great clmniro In the place, n strange
change from the time the hills were
bare nfut there were no houses.
TilH COt'XTY PROSPERED.
Vnder a Republican form of govern
ment a wilderness has grown to a city.
For thirty years this country prospered
under Republican rule. This time the
Issues of the two parties are well de
lined. On one side there is sound money
ami protection to Anierlcun industries.
The money question Is not so material
as a chance to earn It, His Judgment
Is that a return to protective tariff will
restore prosperity. He cited facts to
show the losses that hnvi been sustain
ed by the wage earners by the enact
ment of the free trad measure. The
loss in one department alone, that of
fi ill-ending.' was $2ti.(l0ii,nmi In one year.
The pay roll nt the LacUawannn Knit
ting Mills Is $10.00(1 a month. That in
dustry hail to nuspenil operations re
cently tjecause of a lack of orders; and
so had the mills of the Lackawanna
.iron and Steel company.
He compared the manufacturing in
dustries In America and Europe. We
have as modern and complete machin
ery here and as skilled workmen, in fact
more so, then why can they manufac
ture goods abroad cheaper? Hccause
the workinif men here are paid higher
wages. Hut we do not want, said he,
cheap labor or cheap money. This Is a
great government nnd can do much,
but it cannot make GO cents worth of
silver worth a dollar. Only the Al
mighty can make something out of
SILVER MIXK OWNERS ONLY.
Mr. Coimi II said that the enactment
of a free coinage law would benefit no
one but the silver mini.' owner of the
west. He arcticd that it would be us
Just for coal operators to ask the gov
ernment to place a value on coal by
legislation as the request of the sil
ver men Is. On the question of the
masses ugainst the classes he said that
it is only necessary to look back over
a lifetime In this city and see that the
men who ure prominent In business
today were then poor men. When he
came to Scrnnton he worked for five
years at the rate of $10 a month. What
success he has accomplished has been
through frugality, diligence, patience
and honesty. In conclusion he advised
every person to vote the strnlirht He
publican tlckeffrom McKinley down to
Hon. C. 1. O'Malley paid that four
years niro there was no money ques
tion, it was free trade then that the
country needed. The sons was "Four
years more of Grover, und four years
more In, clover." Those who advocate
protective tariff sail that It will in
crease wages und loFcr prices, and sta
tistics prove It. The Olnss works In
Ci recti Rldse were sold out two months
ago by the sheriff, and the sale brought
hardly enough money to pnv for the
lumber In the buildings. The Olass
works over in Helgltim are supplying
the market that the Oreen Ridge works
formerly suoplied. That Is due to the
When the McKinley bill was passed
EnglLsh capitalists came over from Not
tingham nnd built lace works In Oreen
Hi.lge. Mr. O'Malley met a man who
a few years ago was earning good wag
es In the lace works and today Is tamp
ing ties nt JI.2S a day for the Scranton
Traction company. The lace that ought
to bo mnde In Oreen Rtdge Is being
made over In England again. The
I'nlon Pacific Rnllroad company had
an order for fln.000 tons of steel rails to
give out. The Lackawanna Iron and
Steel company bid $21 a ton. An Eng
lish firm bid $20, and the order was
made in England. Mr. O'Malley the
other day saw grass growing in the yard
at the North works.
The candidacy of Alex. Connell was
spoken of In high terms by Mr. o'Mal
b y. He said he henrd Alex say on the
diiy lie was nominated that his record
was open for examination, and any
man who found any fault with It could
vote against him. The speaker told
from personal knowledge what the can
didate in the Second district has don".
He had a bill put through which gave
to the Scranton Poor district $17,000
last year from state appropriation, re
ducing the poor tax of every person In
this district 25 per cent. He succeeded
In having the superior court hold one
of lis sessions in Scrnnton: he had
the mechanics' lien law nmeniled, and
hud a drainage bill passed, and opposed
the reduction of school appropriations.
Mr. O'Malleyy assured them that the
district would be honored more by
sending Mr. Connell to the legislature
than he would.
Rrlet addresses were made by Attor
neys R. A. Zimmerman, J. M. Wnlkcr
and M. W. Lowry.

is in the farming districts. You may

About Lnckawniinu Politics.
From the Pittsburg Leader, Oct. 21.
rcstmnster Frank Vnndllng, of
Scranton, is in Pittsburg attending the
United States court. Mr. Vnndling Is a
leading Democratic politician In his

crease her Republican majority this
year," said he this morning. "William
Connell, the Republican candlate for
congress, will be elected by prtibably
5,000 majority. Almost every leader the

sentiment of Lackawanna county has
been misrepresented, for It will go over
whelmingly for sound money."

ing counties, Mr. Vaudllng stated that
he believed that Klrkpatrlck would bo
elected In the Northampton-Monroe-Pike
