Largo Audience Treated to Logical
Reasoning and Much Information
Presented in n Forceful nnd Con
vincing 3IanncrOthcr Meetings.
The most prominent feature of last
night's very successful Kerniblican ral
ly held in the Christian church. Dun
nioi', was the lui-Re percentage of
lu-mucrats who weri in attendance.
Tltey not only lent nn attentive ear
but were Quite as enthusiastic: as the
most ardent old time Republican in
applauding the telling points made by
the speakers. These vus lion. John
II. Fellows, ex-mayor vt Scranton;
William HryoVn and John G. McAskle.
It was expected that Wllllum Connell
would be present but owing to a cold
which he cont racteil Saturday and the
orders of his physician that he should
be restful for a few days lie was com
pelled to send his regit ts.
D. V. Hcnnelt, chairman, opened
the meeting by rendinu; Mr. Connell's
letter. He then called upon John J.
Phillips for a sonu and ha responded
by rendering; In a spirited manner the
"Republican Marseilles." Mr. Fellows
was next Introduced. The ex-mayor's
reception was Buch as to evidence that
his popularity Is not confined to the
city of Scranton. He gave thorn one
of his characteristic speeches, making
known his convictions and reasons
therefor In a clear, concise and
straightforward way ' nnd advising
them, as one would expect John Fel
lows to advise, to gt out and hustle,
particularly on election day.
He arraigned the Hryanltes for
their anarchinl attempts to urray the
"masses against the classes," by en
deavoring to stir ut) In the working
nan a felll!ir of distrust, resentment
and enmity Against his employer.wheii

selfish statesman should bo to bring
about a diametrically opposite condi

No one would fight a corporation
longer or harder than he when the cor
poration persisted in doing what was
palpably wronu but on the other hand
no one had a greater regard for the
necessity and benefit of corporations.
He spoke of a prediction he mude
four years ago to a body of men on
the South Side whom he was address
ing. He told them then when they
said they wanted tariff reform that In
the event of the tariff tinkers being put
in power the then binning furnaces of
the steel works would bo extinguished,
the hum of the wheels In the factories
and mills would be hushed, nnd tnere
would be want and desolation among
them. Those men when he went among
them recently admitted that his proph
ecy had been fulfilled; that they were
sorry they had turned a deaf ear to the
pleaders for protection. This free sil
ver Idea Is another just such delusion,
said Mr. Fellows, nnd If those wild
theoried experimenters are given rein
there will be. he would predict, an even
more deplorable consequence. .on

and no matter If It Is even the govern
ment that puts a fictitious value on an
article It will assume Its real vulue
with the rapidity with which water
seeks its level, be that article silver,
pig Iron, anthracite coal, or anything
This Is not a partisan Issue; It is a
campaign for the country's honor. Let
no one, lie urged, be satlsllod with a
simple victory, but see to it that with
the aid of the manly Independents of
the Democratic party the free silver
heresy Is burled so deep that It 111

perity and Integrity of the nation.
MR. BRYDKN'S KKMARKS.
Mr. Hryden prefaced one of the best
political speeches of the campaign
with an earnest plea for fidelity to ihe
local candidates. He raid he did not
know William Connell personally, but
from report he felt that he was a man
who had earned the distinction he
sought and one who could be relied
upon to llttingly represent this great
Industrial county nnd to be a stulwart
lieutenant to McKinley In the carrying
out of tho Ideas of the Republican
party. Mr. Hryden did know, however,
from admissions of his enemies, that
he was "well qualified to punch a
He also commended to them for their
hearty support Attorney John F. Hey
nolds, of Carbondale, the legislative
candidate and also all the other candi
dates on the ticket. Short speeches
were also made by John G. McAskle
MEETING AT GREENWOOD.
Fasshold's hall, Oreenwood, was filled
to overflowing last night. A rally was
held there under the auspices of the
McKinley nnd Hobart club of that
place. The speakers were Attorneys
H. C. Reynolds and John R. Kdwards
O. T. Davis, president of the club, was
Mr. Kdwards was first Introduced.
He spoke on silver and the effect that
the free and unlimited coinage of it
would have upon wages, bank depos
its and insurance companies. Candi
date Bryan says thot free silver nt the
ratio of 16 to 1 will Increase prices.
What advantatro will that lie to Hie
workingman? asked Mr. Kdwards. The
experience of the country and of r.fl
countries is the plainest teacher th.v.
wages would not riso in proportion li
the Increase In prices.
The speaker's reference to William
Connell and the local candidates was
greeted with applause. There was a
large gathering of Democrats In the
hall and many of them joined in the
Mr. Reynolds devoted his attention
more particularly to the tariff. He
aid the tariff Is the real Issue now
as It always was. The free silver cry
is got up to distract attention from
the ruinous effect four years of free
trade have stamped upon the country.
It is a well settled fact, he said, that
protection kindled the fires In the furn
aces and free trade wove the cob webs
In the stacks. He discussed the cur
rency question to show what the de
basement of our monetary system
would lead to In Che way of panics
and hard times, as If we have not
had a sufficient experience with tho
latter the past few years.
Mr. Reynolds read a letter of regret
from Mr. Connell at not being able to
be present on account of a cold. The
mention of, the congressional candi
date's name was greeted with great
cheering, showing his popularity In
that district, where he is so well

BROKE UP A MASQUERADE BALL.
Father O'lteilly of Cathedral Did Not
Want Children to Attend,
In the hall at the corner of Penn
avenue and Mulberry street a crowd of
boys and girls, many of them of very
tender age have since the cool weather
set In, been conducting cheap dances
almost nightly. Last night under the
title of the O. N. O. social club they
guve a inasquerndo ball which was at
tended by a big throng. It was the
biggest crowd of the season and every
thing promised to make It n "groat
rocial success." But while the hilarity
was at Its highest in the neighborhood
of 10.B0 o'clock a sudden and unlooked
for Interruption came.
Two lndien who hud been watching
tho crowd going in were amazed to see
among the revelers, veritable children,
some of them belli! not over twelve
years of a;u. The fact that the occa
sion was a masquerade ball, determin
ed them upon doing something to
break it tin.
Not knowing what else to do they
appenled to Rev. Father O'Reilly, of
the Cathedral, and when the case was
laid before him he said ho would ilnd
a remedy. The remedy was a ctout
hickory stick, nnd a tnost coinrneni'
able spirit. Going Into the hall he or
dered the shameful affair ti cense. His
voice untl manner showed that he was
thoroughly in enrnest and it was not
necessary for him to repeat his order
a second time. They got out nnd quit
lively, too. When he hni! the hull
cleared he telephoned for Lleute mnt
Davis, and explaining what he had
done, asked tho ofiicer, in casj thp ball
started up again, to prevent nny of

which case the parade will be post

ihe number of marchers Is expected
to be so great that the parade will
