SOME OF THE CilAlUIES
I that have leen made against our can
' didatcs ; and if I have the physical
I strength and your jiaticueti will jus-
! tifv it to n bfit-f discussion of the
record of the Democratic ticket the
renowned and patriotic and distin
guished Iha:Ie-"R. J5uckalew. One
of the first and principal charges that
has been made against the Republi
can candidate for (Jovenior is that he
is the candidate of the King, the
Treasury King, the King that con
trols tlu politics of Pennsylvania, the
King that is under the lead and do
minion and power of that man, who
j if we are to believe all that is said
aoout lum, must ue a demon incar
nate Simon Cameron. Applause.
Xow mv fellow-citizens, 1 have never
been an admirer of Mr. Cameron;
have never In-longed to Ins wing of
the party in Pennsylvania ; but, on
the contrary, as ninny of you know,
have always licen identified with
what is called the wiag the same
that the President of this meeting has
belonged to (referring to Mr. Mann)
what is known as the Curtin wing
of the party. Cheers. I want,
also, to say to you, to-night, just here,
that while that distinguished War
Governor of Pennsylvania is lying
dangerously ill in New Y'ork that
the reports which have been put in
circulation about his being opposed
in any way to the National or State
tickets are lies cut out of the whole
cloth cheers, nnd that if he were
able to raise his head from his pillow
he would hurl them back with scorn
upon their authors. Applause. I
say I have never been an admirer of
Senator Cameron, and have never be
longed to his wing of the party. Dut
some things I know about the manner
in which the nomination of John F.
Ilartranft was brought about Ap
plause. In the first place you will
remember, my fellow-citizens, that for
months, for more than a year, previ
ous to the meeting of tho State Con
vention, Gen. Ilartranft 's name was
prominently mentioned in connection
with the Gubernatorial nomination,
and that county after county instruct
ed delegates for him, to represent
them at llarriburg.
CAMERON OPPOSED TO HARTRANFT'S
The week before that Convention
assembled I happened to be in the
city of Washington, in the discharge
of official duties. While there I was
present at a caucus held in the Com-1
mittec room of Senator Cameron, in
that the nomination of John F. Hart
ranft the next week at llarrisburg
must be prevented. In that couclu
sion Senator Cameron concurred, and
it was decided that he should proceed to
llarrisburg, and use his utmost efforts
to prevent the nomination of Hart
ranft for Governor. He started from
Washington,' went to llarrisburg,
found the majority of the delegates
were instructed for Ilartranft, and
that he had no power or control over
them ; then left llarrisburg and came
back to V ashington before the Con.
vention was over, and reported that
the thing was done and that he had
no power to prevent it. Applause,
Yet they say he is the candidate of
the Cameron ring. Here is one of his
principal backers, who was there upon
the ground (pointing to the lion
Wm. B. Mann, sitting near him), and
Morris Coates, of Philadelphia, was
another, upon the ground : and von
know that county after county, auti
Cameron, sent delegates instructed
for Ilartranft, and that county afti
county recognized as Lainerou sent
delegates instructed for Jordan.
THE EVAN8 FRAUD.
Now my fellow-citizens, tho next
charge that has been made and I
dismiss this charge about his bein
the candidate of a ring with-these re
marks, liecauso I will have to. hasten
the next charge that has licen made
against General Ilartranft is that he
was implicated In the Evans fraud
that ho nttempted to steal from the
Commonwealth " of Pennsylvania
$300,000 iu the form of commissions
for collecting the war claims of the
Commonwealth against the Govern
ment of the Luited States At thi
point the speaker was interrupted bv
the passage of a procession, and the
discharge of fireworks outside the
building Keporter. In regard to
this charge; the largest portion of
what were called claims were presen
ted at ashington In-fore Gen. Hart
ranft came into office. You will
further reniemberthat there is no such
thing as an account of a State against
the Government 6f the United States
There can le no" claim against the
sovereign except what the sovereign
itself chooses to allow. The United
States Government chose, by an act
of its Congress, to provide that
would, under certain circumstances,
refund to tho States the payments

tied in the Auditor-General's office
between citizens and the State, ant
filed away, towards which the duties
of the Auditor-General had been offi
ciallv discharged under Act of As

more to do with. When the Govern

would recognize in the settlement of
the claim the Governor of the State,
or a duly accredited and appointed
agent. In accordance with that pro
vision, an agent was to be appointed
to present the claims to the Govern
ment, to obtain the uionVy, nnd pay
it over to the Governor or into the
State Treasury, and the Auditor-
General had nothing more to do with
it than you or I. Applause. That
was the status of the claims at the
time Evans was appointed Agent un
der an act of Asseiubry by the Gov
ernor ot ttie Commonwealth. He
made out the claims and presented
them at Washington, and received the
money, and paid it over what was
paid over to the Governor, and the
Governor paid it into the State Treas
ury, and all the Auditor-General had
to do with it was to ascertain by ex
amination of the accounts of the State
Treasury if the money paid had been
properly credited to the Common
wealth, and if it was there iu the
hands of the Treasurer ready to meet
legal warrants drawn upon the Trcas
ury. This was the status of those
claims when it was accidentally dis
covered that a large portion of money
had been received by George O.
Evans which hud not been paid iuto
the treasury of the Commonwealth.
Immediately after that discovery the
State Treasurer and the Auditor-
General applied to me, as their
counsel, residing in the city of Pitts
burgh, as their private counsel, to
know what remedy they might have
and how they could force this man
hvans to disgorge the money. I dir
ected that the State Treasurer and
the Auditor-General should settle and
adjust the account upon such data as
they might lie able to obtain, and that
they should call him to account and
demand the payment of the money,
that they themselves stated and certi
fied to be due. Accordingly the ac
count was settled, and he was called
to account, and the money was de
manded. What then? Why, he left
the State. When he was gone, they
came to me again to know what had
to be done now. I advised that a
When this requisition Lad been ob
tained, officers were sent to New
York, but failed to ascertain the
whereabouts of Evans, when Gen.
Ilartranft and Mr. Mat-key came to
me again to urge something else to be
done. I found authority under the
United States Government, as an at
torney of the United States, to pro
cure the interference and assistance of
the secret service of the United States
to ascertain tho whereabouts of
Evans, and succeeded in finding him
and procuring his arrest. Applause.
Ho was brought back to the State of
Pennsylvania and disposed of, as you
know, on a hearing at llarrisburg.
At that time I was sick lying in bed,
and couldn't attend as their counsel.
They were represented by Hon.
Wayne MacVcagh, and the State by
Attorney General Brewster. To my
great surprise and amazement the
charge Iteforc J udge Pierson was en
tirely different from that which I had
advised and had intended to perform.
He was discharged, but the civil suit
remained. Now mark, my fellow
citizens, during all this time,
UENERAL HARTRANFT NEVER MANI
FESTED THE SLIGHTEST FEAR,
and recollect that he had it in his
power to stop the proceedings at any
moment. If the Auditor-General and
the State Treasurer had differed the
State couldn't have proceeded to re
cover the money ; if they differ the
Governor is umpire, and his decision
is final. If General Ilartranft had
desired to stop the proceedings, if
there had licen anything in his trans
actions with G. O- Evans that impli
cated him in the emliezzlenient, all he
had to do was to differ with State
Treasurer Mackey, and the whole
thing was squelched in an instant.
But no, he was firm, vigorous, un
yielding, persevering, pressing to the
lust, demanding that the State should
have justice, nnd that the money vif
tho Commonwealth should be paid
over and placed in the vaults of the
treasury. Applause. One step
further. They charge that he bor
rowed $7,000 from Evans. So he did
and he paid it back and redeemed his
note like an honorable man, and I
bear testimony here to-night to the
fact that though George O. Evans was
his creditor for $8,000, vet that didn't
deter him from bringing Geo. O.
Evans to justice. Applause.. He
paid him the note, and paid him the
interest, every penny tf it, for every
hour that he had held it iif Jjis pos
session. And rmW can you s1-sany-thing

anything upon which these charges
can be based that arc daily reiterated
in the Liberal and Democratic press ?
But I shalLhave more to sav about it
before I jfet through.
TIIE'MANAGEMENT OF THE STATE
I pass now to the next charge, that
General Ilartranft and Mr. Mackey
and the Treasury King have been
peculating and using the public
inoiit'V in the Treasury improperly.
In the first place they allege that it
is entirely wrong that these moneys
should be distributed about the State,
deposited with various banks and
bankers throughout the Common
wealth. Well, it may be wrong I
have nothing to say about that but
our forefathers, as far back as 1811,
passed a law which provided that all
irtsoiis who held money due to the
Commonwealth should deposit in
such banks as might bo designated by
the State Treasurer as far back as
1811. And again, in 18o", the same
thing was re-enacted, and it was pro
vided that the Auditor-General
should, at stated times, examine the
accounts of the various banks and
bankers, to ascertain that the money
may have to -be an examination of
your books and accounts." Well, Mr.
IMackey, assisted by his friends raised
the $105,000, and placed it to the
credit of the Commonwealth ; and it
is there to-day, to my personal knowl
edge, every dollar of it, ready to be
drawn upon any legal warrant.
Applause. I came on to Philadel
phia to sec what could be done to sc
curo this claim, or any part of it, ont
of the assets of Mr. Yerkes. I found
he had made voluntary assignments
of what property he had left to a
lawyer in this city, and I discovered
that before his failure he had given
preference to a large number of banks
and bankers in this city some of
your very first bankers and some of
tho largest and most powerful corpor
ations in this city, the First National
and the Kensington Banks, and Mr.
Drexel. Xow my dutv as counsel for
Mr. Mackey and Gen. Ilartranft.
who had nothing in connection with
this deposit of public money was to
direct them what was best for them to
do. I knew if I went iuto a Court of
Bankruptcy and instituted proceed
ings against l eikcs, to force these
people, that I would be fought at
every step. 1 knew that lerkes'
books and all the account and data
would have to be brought into the
public tribunal, and passed through
the hands of the Marshal ami the
hands of the Kegister in Bankruptcy,
open to the inspection of all the cred
itors. Did that make them hesitate ?
a moment t Did I hesitate J I went
into the U. S. Court and filed the pe
tition in bankruptcy and provided the
proof. This money was the personal
indebtedness of Kolx'rt W. Mat-key,
every dollar of it, and has all been
paid to the S.ate every dollar of it ;
and is there now. Applause.
What I say can be proved by any
body who examines the record.
There was nothing illegal or impro
per in the transaction with Chas. T.
Ycrkcs. Applause.. There was
nothing improper or criminal in either
Robert W. Mackey or J. F. Hart-'
ranft. But thev say there was an
we are paying that off at the rate
two millions of dollars r annum by
the taxes collected from the corporations.
A voice "Just what Grant has
made England pay."
Now, my fellow-citizens, look at
that. At the same rate of pavmeut in
nine more years Pennsylvania will
hare clear and clean books. She
won't owe a dollar in the world. No
other State of the American nation
to-night can show such a financial re
cord as that Go look at Xcw York,
which has been under Democratic
rule. Laughter. Contrast our
condition with theirs. Ah, my fellow
citizens and yet they talk alout
speculating with the public money.
Well I Lope Mackey and Ilartranft
will go on until they get the whole
debt paid. Applause and laughter.
It is the kind of speculation that I
like just like the whisky that Gen.
Grant drank during the war.
Now, my ftllow-ci.izcns, it is not
necessary that I should revert to the

and applause. Yes, they are paying
the State debt ami Grant is paying
the X'ational debt, and paying it raji
idly, too. I used to think that tho
Xational debt was a terrible thing ; in
fact, if I had owed all that money I
would have gone into bankruptcy. I j
used to think that it was a terrible
thing, but some time ago I read an ac
count of a store-keeper in some little
town in Ohio, who paid $20,000 a
year for eggs. Just think of it ! and
I began toculculate, if all the store
keepers in Ohio paid so much for eggs,

defy them to produce it. As for his
votes, he was always with the Cop

of the Copperheads. He voted with
Garrett Davis constantly and consis
tently, uniformly, all through his Sen

the Government during the war ;
voted to pay the slaveholders for the
liberation of their slaves, and voted
against every measur of reconstruc

ir? Clear-field county, a county rery
much like Columbia county, whero
it was very hard to live during the
war. You know that in Clearfield
county they continually resisted the
draft, and that finally troops had to
be sent there to enforce it and make
the people obey the laws. Well, they
tried the same thing in Columbia
count v, and with about the same re-
! suits. When the troops were sent to
enforce the draft in Clearfield county,
you all know that Bigler hied away
to California, and that Wallace put
in a subr-titute laughter, and they
do say that he was a "nigger' at
that. Laughter. In Columbia

Meeting," and they published a book,
and I have it, and will produce it,
containing the proceedings of the
Xorth Mountain Camp Meeting, and

Speakers is Charles R. Buckalew.
Applause. And now he is going
about Pennsylvania, talking about
his loyalty during the war. To any
man that doubts the existence of that
book, I will be very glad to show it.
I will leave it at the headquarters ot
the Republican State Central Com
mittee, where any man can see it I
make no statement about Buckalew
which I am not prepared to prove and
verify by irrefutable document. Now
this is the loyal man you are asked to
vote for, that some Republicans, some
"Liebral" Republicans, are willing to
vote for the coming election. Mr
fellow-citizens, it has como back in
