Kokomo Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - October 22, 1894, Kokomo, Indiana Kokomo Daily Tribune. TWELFTH YEAR. NO. 43.KOKOMO, INDIANA, MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 22, 1894. PRICE TWO CENTS KNOWLEDGE Brines comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many who live better than others and enjoy rife more, with less expenditure, by more promptly adapting tho world’s best products to the needs of physical being, will attest tile value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in the remedy, Syrup of Figs. Its excellence is due to its presenting in the form most acceptable and pleasant to the taste, the refreshing and truly beneficial properties of a perfect laxative; effectually cleansing the system, dispelling colds, headaches and fevers and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met with the approval of the medical profession, because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and it is perfectly free from every objectionable substance. Syrup of Figs is for sale by all druggists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only, whose name is printed on every package, also the name, Syrup of Figs and being well informed, you will not accept any substitute if offered. ASSIST NATURE a little now and then in removing offending matter from the stomach and bowels and you thereby avoid a multitude of distressing derangements and diseases. and will have less frequent need of your doctor’s service. Of all known agents for this purpose, Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets are the best. Once used, they are alums in favor. Their secondarj' effect is to keep the bowels open and regular, not .o further constipate, as i s the case with other pills. Hence, their great popularity with sufferers from habitual constipation,4 ,b^j^attea^ant^discomfort and manifold derangements The ** Pellets are purely vegetable and perfectly harmless in any condition of the system. Ho care is required while using them; they do not interfere with the diet, habits or occupation, and produce no pain, griping or shock to the system. They act in a mild, easy and natural way and there is no reaction afterward. Thtir help lasts. The Pellets cure biliousness, sick and bilious headache, dizziness, costiveness, or constipation. sour stomach, loss of appetite, coated tongue indigestion, or dyspepsia, windy belching®, “heartburn,” pain and distress after eating, and kindred derangements of the liver, stomach and bowels. In proof of their superior excellence, it can be truthfully said, that they are always adopted as a household remedy after the first trial. Put up in sealed, glass vials, therefore always fresh and reliable. One little “Pellet” is a laxative, two are mildy cathartic. As a “dinner pill.” to promote digestion, or to relieve distress from overeating. take one after dinner. They are tiny, sugar-coated granules; any child will readily take them. Accept no substitute that may be recommended to be “just as good.” It may be better for the dealer, becense of paying him a better profit, but he is not the one who needs help. StS** ILA, 1.4.

THE PANIC AND ITS CAUSE Imlnstn'-Wrecking Threats of Democrats Rostensible For Depression. HIS GREAT FORT WAYNE SPEECH. Fall Text of the Address Delivered Before Six Thousand People In Princess Rink, Showing:    Democratic    Incompe tence and a Work of Ruin—’' Ex-President Harrison’s triumphal tour through northern Indiana last week, which had Fort Wayne as the objective point, produced mort1 genuine Republican enthusiasm than even the most hopeful had expected. In addition to some 30 speeches en route to and from the Allen county capital, General Harrison mm Iv an address in Princess rink, Fort Wayne, before 6,000 people, who received his arguments with frequent bursts of approval. The outpouring af the people to listen to General Harrison is but another indication that this is a Republican year in Indiana as in every northern state. The like of it was never witnessed. had iii their pockets. It was one of tho curious features of that panic that men who had money and we«tt to the bank to got it did not care winch what kind of money was paid them—-whether it was silver certificates or what not. They did not stop to look at it, but just wrapped it up in a newspaper and took it home and hid it under the bed, or took it to a safety dejxwit company, hired a Ihix and stuck it there. They were not distrustful of the money the government had in circulation; they had absolute confidence in that. They said:    “The government is behind this money and it has promised to make every dollar just as good jus any other dollar. We do not care what it is so it is government money and we have it.” They carried this to such an extent that very soon tilt banks had no money left. There was a great scarcity of money because the people took it out of tno banks and hid it away until they could see what was going to come of this agitation. This was not because of commercial excess, not because of lack of money, not because tile people were afraid of the money, but because they felt some great catastrophe! was impending, some great uncertainty; until that uncertainty was solved they did not know what was going to happen. They took fla ir money out of the banks until. GENERAL HARRISON’S SPEECH. Review of tho Panic and Rh Caum*- The Tariff Isnue. My Fellow Citizens—When we have a debate on I always like to find in the first place the points of agreement, so that we may go on to discuss those tilings about which we differ. I find there is a very general agreement now among Republicans and Democrats upon two propositions. One is that we have had a very wade and disastrous panic, in which all our people have shared; the second is that one party or the other— Democrats or Republicans—are in a cpn siderable measure responsible to the people for these evil times. Now that makes the discussion a little easier. We have had, and wre are still in the shadow of, very evil times. Tho farmer has felt them; the merchant has felt them;above all, the man who was dependent upon his daily wages for his living has felt them, because when he lost his job he lost everything; whereas the merchant, when his g<xxls were marked down, had still something left. There were one or two features of this panic that I want to talk to you about. In the first place I want to say that in my opinion it was not one of those panics which sometimes come from overtrading aud overspeculation. It was not a relapse from some balloon enterprises that we had entered into. We have had such panics as that in this country, and they were always characterized by a great deal of litigation in our courts. In the panic of 1873-74 the courts of all oar counties were crowded with collection suits. Men were being sued on notes and mortgages were being foreclosed. That state of things has not characterized this panic through which we have just gone. There has been very little of that. It was not overtrading and overspeculation; it was not wildcatting in business that brought this panic upon us. If it had been we would have seen the necessary incidents and concomitants of that sort of thing in the collation of notes and foreclosures of mortgages all over the country. When this panic began wre had more money in circulatifn per capita than we have had for many years. This had come about in this w’ay. In the first place under what is known as the Sherman law, the silver purchasing law, under which we bought 4,500,000 ounces of silver every month, we issued a large amount of what was called treasury notes, so that the money in circulation had been increased by about $150,000,000 by this new currency that had been put out among the people. The money in circulation had also been enormously increased by the reduction of the surplus in the treasury. A Reminder to Democrat*. You remember my Democratic friends —I hope we are all friends, for I have not anything unkind to say about any one—you remember when they made a campaign upon the theory that the country was being ruined because there was so much surplus. They said: "You have taken this money out of the pockets of the people and locked it up and it is not doing anybody any good.” That surplus had been by the purchase of government bonds reduced enormously and the money was out among the people doing its work. And then by the increase*! pensions—which I am glad to say a Republican congress voted and I approve*! with pleasures and have never apologize*! for—an enormous additional amount of money was put in circulation among the people until our Democratic friends changed th** form of the indictment against os. Th»*y indicted us first for having too much in the* tre asury, and now they say we left too little*. My point is that the money is circulation was so largely increased that it oould not have benni a lack of money that thought that panic on. It was not any lack of confidence on the j>art of the people in the money that wjis in circulation. It was not lx*;ause they doubted the value of the bills or the com they GENERAL HARRISON. as you know, some of the great banks in New York city would not pay out currency in nuv large* amount* on checks of their do|*ositors. They told you your check was good. but they could not pay currency for it. Every liody Ste*si and said: “What is going to happen? I ain sure there* is some catastrophe in store for us, ami I want to make sure that what little money I have does not g *t a w’ay from me.” Presently the p»*ople got over their fear of the banks and they brought the money back. And from kthat time to this Lank vaults have been full of money. They have had such a surplus as they never had before, but they oould make no use of it; nobody wanted it; there w’:is no business being done; there were no solvent borrowers w’ho would take the money. Factories w’ere dost*! and great enterprise wit* abandoned. There was a great surplus of money doing noisily any good. by Fears. What brought that condition about? What was this expectation of evil, this dread of catastrophe which came upon the people of this country and which is still more or less upon them? It was the uncertainty that tile Democratic success of 1892 introduced as to what was to be done upon the taxi lf question. They had said they were going to destroy this protective system. The Democrats f rom Andrew Jackson down to Mr. Hendricks and Mr. McDonald and Mr. Voorh«*e8 had said:    “Wo will collect off of the foreign goods that come in so much money as is necessary to pay thor expenses of the government. That is the favored way of getting our r< venue; we are not going to tax the people directly as W’e did during the w’ar, whim our customs duties were in ult qnate to pay the expenses, but we will levy on foreign goods enough to pay the expenses of tin* government.” Now they have changed that policy; they used to talk about iii cidenta! protection as a very proper and worthy thing. But they turned about at Chicago in 1892 ami said that protection, whether of a purpose or as an incident to the collection of tho revenues, is unconstitutional, and that they proposed to tear the whole fabric down. Nobbily knew what they were going to do. We only knew that the- house that had sheltered us—in the shelter of which w’e had grow a to be the richest and most prosperous people in the world, wa* to be taken down from over our heads. From that time to this people have been standing wondering, fearing, dreading what might I** done. What has been done? They were bound to build a house they would 1*3 pleased with themselves; they were bound to build one that would stand. Instead they have constructed a building no Democrat likes. Mr. Cleveland dot* not like it. He says in effect that the tariff bill is a tainted and ugly thing —so tainted, so unequal, so unfair that he would not sign it. And they hiid no sooner made that tariff bill than they set to work to tinker it up. My Democratic friends, my R publican friends, men of these shops ami these farms, do you want this to go oh? Do you want to continue in power a party that after one year’s effort upon tHis question has produced a bill so unsatisfactory that they themselves beg; in to tinker with it ami amend it the very moment it poised? For the hist year and a half times have been hard and every lindy has suffered more or less. If a man had money, bonds or stock, his bonds shrunk, but he had enough to live comfortably still. The farmer saw tho price of his agricultural products going dow n from a point that he had supposed was the bottom, and .'oiug down iii spite of the golden promises hem out in 1892 that they should go up. Thing have become greatly worse, though he thought they wen* so bail that they must be 'letter and was very naturally pleased with the generous promises held out to him. Not Dup to the Silver L*w. Now’ I want to talk about the panic a little. Every I* sly agrees that it > has been a bitterly evil thing, and everybody ought to agree that tm* party that I is responsible for it ought not to be put in power or continued in power. What j brought this panic about? Just after it broke on the country iii 1893 the Democrats said it was tho Sherman bill. Mr. Cleveland said it Wits the Sherman bill, he said tho bankers ami the moneyed nu n of the country had become uneasy; our gold was going abroad and they were afraid we would come upon a silver b;isis He said ill elF.*ct if this Sherman bill can I*** repealed promptly we shall have go**d times at once. You all renlemlier that. And congress was assembled to act u;*m that single question. Every I* *lv was greatly anxious lest they should do something t-»*. Mr. Cleveland practically said to tm-ni:    “I want you to come together and to r» peal the Sherman law’, and when you have done that I want you to go bonn at once." The Sherman law was passed in the interest, it w as supposed, of silver, as ail expression of friendliness to silver as money. A great many i**>ple are clamoring for frt»o coinage of silver—that every min should have the right to bring silver that was worth GO cents to the mint, and that the government should put a stamp on it that would make it worth a dollar and give it back to him. A great many people thought that would make everybody happy. I can see how’ that was a good thing for the men w ho owned the silver mines, but not for the people generally. There w:ls a feeling that silver had not been fairly dealt with. So the Republican party passed the Sherman bill. They said:    “We will tost this question; whether it is true that there is only a small excess of silver over what we are coining, #2,000,000 a month, produced; whether, if this is taken up, silver will go to an equality with gold.” We undertook to buy 4,560,000 ouncesevery mouth, suid issued paper money to pay for it. We gave the country $150,000,000 more currency by tin* Sherman law. Mr. Cleveland said he wanted this law repealed: and though the Democrats had denounced it iii their platform, when ho appealed to his party nearly one-half of the De mocrats in the house and the sen ate voted against repealing it. The Republicans said:    “This    w’as    an experi meat; it was the best thing we knew at tin* time; it has not done go great harm as you think, it is not the real cause of the panic, it has failed its purpose, but Mr. Cleveland wants it repealed. We will help Lam repeal it.” Now, my friends, about that Sherman bill I have not much to say. I approved it and, under the same conditions existing then, I would do it again. In what a contrast the action of the Republicans in this matter was to the way our Democratic friends dealt with the same question* When we hail a Republican admiuistra lion then* were Democrats who have sine** squarely voted against tree coinage when they had power to make it a law, but were then voting for fret* coinage, jus they said, under their breath: “To put the president in it hole.” I am glad to say our Republican friends have not l*»on legislating w’ith any such motive. They have had in mind the g<**l of the country and have lait their pride under their feet when it seemed that they might, by repealing a law of their own enactment, advance the public good. Tile Cry of Clienper Good*. What was the cry of 1892—that this new’ tariff legislation was to be had in the interest of cheaper things, greater cheapness, cheaper goods. How much we heard about that. The merchants and manufacturers wert* advised that a tariff policy was to be inaugurated that would cheapen everything, and by that they wert* warned not to buy or produce anything except on orders. I think this country hits one great danger threaten ing that is not even mentioned. It is a gn at i**ril for non sequiturs from all logic. It is not surprising that thi-Democratie promise that you were to I*; given everything that yon wanted to buy cheaper, w hile your w ages were not to go down at all, w as accepted by everybody? Could not you si** the folly of such a statement—that the shoe maker was to have a cheaper coat and a cheaper shirt, and the tailor was to have cheaper shoes, and the shirtmaker a cheaper coat and shoes? Don’t you see the folly of that appeal—that the things that you bought were to I*; eheai**m*u aud tho things you sold to go up. That miserable piece of ill logic, that nensequitur that reminds me of Hood’s picture of a horse that had broken awa,> from the buggy, and at the head of the road hail turned back to look at the man sitting in the buggy. This was the nonsequitur. Workmen’s wages were to be the same; we were to introduce a very large amount of English goods; wa* were to make just as much here. Oh, my friends, the wretched ill-logic of all these promises! Is it not surprising that men were captured by these appel'1., to ignorance, prejudice and manufacturers were denounced jus roblier barons? Tin* man who, by thrift, had saved money and put it in a mill instead of a mortgage was the enemy of his fellows and the oppressor of the men to whom ho paid wages. It was not only Hie false, but it was a cruel doctrine to teach to our people, for it divided them; it broke up that sense of community and common interest and kindness that ought to characterize our communities. Now’, my friends, the Democratic party, after constituting the committee in August, 1893, to prepare a tariff bill for report at oho earliest possible moment in the regular session in December went to work on it, but the trouble with the w’hole business has been that there is no coin Fence in ‘he Democratic party upon the tariff question. It is an aggregation of differing views upon the subject. What was the result? Mr. Wilson, the chairman of the ways and means committee of the house, a professor, is a man of respectability and character. Ho is a man, I suppose, who has studied economy questions and is full of book knowledge about tariffs. His th<*ory w as that America w’as fenced in, and that the work to lie done was to tear down the fences. He told his English friends who banqueted him iii London that wats the pro j cot Hie Democratic party had on hand. I think that the report says that at that point; there was applause and laughter. You never knew an Englishman to hear a threat against England’s supremacy, either iii arms or iii commerce, and applaud it, unless he thought that it wits a very foolish threat. I thank God for the fact that American diplomacy all through the story of the formation of the United States, Central and South American republics has been a sentimental diplomacy. It has not been a selfish commercial diplomacy. liritain’H Diplomacy. The diplomacy of Groat Britain has been always characterized by commercial aggression and has been froe from sentiment. She has pushed her commerce at the point of tho bayonet upon the weaker nations of the world and blown her goods from the mouths of great guns into tho ports of trusting nations, as her opium into China. We cannot get commerce that way. (A I voice. “Hadn’t ought to.”) No we hadn’t ought to. Our policy has his n sympathetic toward any feeble nation anywhere who w’as trying to struggle up into a higher and more secure national life. They have seized the w orld wliere-ever it was weakly held. I may stop to say here that there is a part of tin* world they have not been able to carve up, not from any want of g»K*l intention. The Central and South American states have l>een saved from the commercial and military aggression of the European {towers only I>ecause the United States Ills said:    “You shall not lay hands on them.” They have imitated our Republican form of government, they are near to us geographically, their sympathies have been with us and we have been patiently and constantly their friend. The t;iriff bill of 1890 gave to some of these gre*t tropical countries free access of their sugar to the United States. By so doing we contributed to the savings of the household expenses of every man and woman 'n America. We did not tax you, but made a contribution out of the revenues of tile government by giving you frt** sugar and at the same time by reciprocity arrangements with those countries we secured a favored entrance into Brazil, Cuba and others of the South American countries for a large list of our agricultural products and our manufacture d products. It was a fair bargain; we natl an advantage in that trade that no government of Europe could have. British merchants cried out against it. They asked the government to appoint JI commission to investigate the results of this aggressive policy of the United States. Their trade with South America fell off ;ind ours enor inonsly increased; and yet these gentle men who want the markets of tho w orld not only threw’ away, by destroy lug those reciprocity arrangements, these enormous markets, enormous in their present value, still more so in their possibilities, that we had already secured, and in winch Europe could not compete with us at all. They throw thorn all away. Is that sincere desire to enlarge our foreign markets? A Product of Dickering. Now’, how’ w’as this Democratic bill passed through congress? Senator Jones of Arkansas frankly told the country how it was done. Ile took the bill around aud said to each Democratic senator, “What is there in the bill you don’t like, juid what will you take— what chang**! rates to vote for it?” “How shall I modify this bill in order to get your vote?” w’jls the question. Well, a Democratic senator w ho lived in a town where collars and cuffs .are liuide said lie must hjive a high proh*ot-ive duty on collars and cuffs, and so it went all the way around the Democratic side of the senate chamber. That wa is their method of dealing with tin* greatest question that congress is ever called upon to deal with, with the question that most strongly affects the business interests of the whole country. Forty-three votes r. ero obtained. One Democratic senator—Mr. Hill of New York— voted “no,” and in consideration of that vote they have nominated him for governor or New York, ami look for him to lejvd a forlorn hope in that Democratic state. What principle runs through this tar iff bill? I JL-k my Democratic friends if they can tell me what principle it wats formed upon. A biri if bill ought to lie the outcome of some principle, uniformly applied from the beginning to the end of the bill. This bill is not so fornu*d. It Iris some clauses highly protective; it h;is placed some other articles ilk much entitled to protection on the free list. They have brought forth the tariff higgledy-piggledy. Thjit is not my judgment alone, because that might not count for much—it is Mr. Cleveland’s judgment. He sjiid the bill wits so false to Demoera’ic promises, wjls so inconsistent and incongruous that he would not sign it; and if the newspaper reports art* true he would Lairdly stay in the room where it was. Mr. Wilson not only said it was bad, but intimate*! that unpleasant and scjindalous influences had to do with its construction. Mr. Cleveland even alluded to such influences in his lette r. An* we te> elect a new De*mocratic congress to siice***ei this one? Are we to say that we like* this condition of uncer-tainty and unrest? If you chose a Dem-ocratic congress, I should think that is w’hat you like. But if you would put an end ta> it, you should say:    “Gentle men, you have failed, and ut a great cost to the* country.” If you feel that way, you will elect a Republican congress in November that will make the end of the bad business, that will bring to an end this raid upon American industries. A Republican house of represe ntatives cannot do much, as there will bee a Democratic senate and a Democratic president. They will not bt* jible to pass a new tariff bill, but the country will un-derstand that this war is not to lx* re-newed. I should think that many a Democrat might filii into that way of thinking n*rv, and say: I will see about it two years from now, when the great campaign is on, but for tho present I am willing the*re should be* a Republican house* of representatives in order that there shall be* jill end to tins fearful business apprehension and uncertainty.” These* issues are in your hands; they are worthy of your calmest, fullest jukI most intelligent thought.

Every Window In the Cars Riddled and Two Person* Shot, Due Fatally — Little Money Secured by the Desperadoes. Empty Car aud a Turned Switch Used to Stop Hie Passenger Train. Fort Gibson, I. T., Get. 22.—Passenger train No. 223, on the Kansas and Arkansjis Valley branch of the Missouri Pacific, was held up and robbed by masked men at Coretta Siding, seven miles east of Wagoner, I. T., at IO o’clock Saturday night. The bandits jvdopted a plan somewhat out of the ordinary to Jiccomplish tlioir designs. Instead of fljigging the train or removing a rail, they placed Jon empty cjir upon the main track, and into this tho passenger train crashed. The robbers were of the most desperate nature, and before the train hat! fairly come to a sudden stop they commenced a vicious onslaught. At almost the first volley two persons were wounded. When the passenger engine struck the obstruction with considerable force it was ditched and rolled over upon its side. The robbers were decidedly quick of action and the engine had lairdly toppled over before the fusil Lyle began. Got Lest Than 0500. But little money (less than $500) is said to have been secured. The robbery wjis the work of tile Cook gang of outlaws who have recently been terrorizing the territory. For two months jill railroads passing through the territory have been heavily guarded in fear of an attack, and money shipments have been refused by the express company. All the ears excepting the sleeper were shot full of holes, aud not a whole window remains. The train struck the obstruction across the track after being shunt d on to ji siding, the outlaws having thrown ji switch for thjit purpose. The money st*’ured was from the local safe. During th** fusilijide Jack Mahara, advance agent of the Mahara minstrel show, received a fatjil shot in the fore-hejid and Walter Barnes of Van Buren, Ark., was struck in the cheek by a bullet. PastenRerii Robbed. After the train had been brought to a standstill and the firing to a certain extent had ceased, the robbers proceeded to rob the passengers. Considerable money aud other valuables were tjiken from the passengers. The robbers kept up a constant firing upon the outside while the work of plundering the passengers wjuk in progress. They shot out jill of the windows in the engine, baggage, express car and < caches. Eight or IO men were in the gang, and they were disguised so jus to resemble Indians and negroes. Four armed men called at the section house ut Ross Station, six miles north of Wagoner, T. T., yesterday and at the points of Winchesters compelled the section foreman to prepare their dinner.
