Taylorof New York and many others Koeil on the Republican 1arty The two principal speeches of the even ing were those of Speaker Eeed and Hon J S Clarkson Mr began by saying Your toast strikes the only possible noti of continued victory for the Republican party Continued victory we must have XoTas partisans but as patriots Not ou the past must be oureliance but on the future If today we are not in the forefront of hu man progress to have been followers ol Abraham Lincoln in the years gone by is a burning disgrace Progress is the es sence of Republicanism To have met Hreat emergencies as they arose has been our history To meet great emergencies as they shall arise must be our daily walk and duty or we cease to be Hanging on to old traditions is the business of the Democratic party And it does that busi ness well we can never rival it The Southern Question Prefacing his remarks on this issue by saying that he had not for years talked iu the house about southern outrages and wrongs not because he did not believe in their existence but because the remedy could not come from were only seventhhour from the peo ple Mr Reed said that the south denies that cheating atelections exists in that section So did it deny ihekuklux and other methods adopted to annihilate the Republican vote On this point he said I call upon yotf to note one singu lar while it existed every one ol these crimes against the government wits most solemnly denied by the southern press and southern people No mail denies them today Some Ilasii 1rlnciples us come at some principles which are fundamental in this matter A negro is a citizen of the United States He has just as much right to vote and have his vote counted as anybody on the earth That lit is poor and ignorant does not under the constitution put upon his neck the foot oi riches or of intelligence Manhood and not and learning the basis of our government We would like all our citizens to be learned we wish they were all rich but until they become both we will take the average of all of them as they are Nothing less than that would be government by the people While the south denies the frauds in elections the cheatiugs and the ballotbox stuffing sin gularly enough they justify them Why lefend them if they dont happen You cannot understand this on the principle of logic but you can on the principles o lying The Republican Keinedy The Republican vote of the south the Re publican party is entitled to under the con stitution whether that vote be ignorant 01 sensible If ignorant need it to offset the Democratic ignorance which votes in New York and other cities Why he asked should they poll their ignorance and we not poll ours He then asked What is the remedy and proceeded tc advocate a national election law Let us cut loose from the state elections do oui own registration our own counting and our owu certification Then the nation will satisfied Against this course nc constitutional objection can be urged Freed from all right of interference the south will have what they have longed power to work out their own pe culiar problem themselves and I venture the prophecy that the relief from outside pressure will break down the race issue Clarkson Strikes a Kote of Hon J S Clarkson spoke to the toast The Republican Press He said he be lieved the Republican press to form the stronpest intellectual on the conti nent find then proceeded The campaign of 1898 will he largely a newspaper cam and it has already begun Let us be say that the Democrats saw this the for any close ob i server must Have seen with interest and astonishment the marTelous man In which the Democratic party has been its lines in tho newspaper or latter days it has been jwn game In the large aey have captured nearly and illustrated papers If fhe Australian system was the thing lit us have it but he thought that in the south the Australian system was wanted for vot ing but an American system for counting Theie were a number of other toasts re sponded to and all the speeches were KSndly applauded It was midnight before the guests arose from thu tables and betook themselves to rest The hall was brilliant with the national colors and the

cution of the writs and thai means will be Hound to transport and subsist said offi cers wherever their duties may call them A Florida Editor Protusts TACKSOXVIILK Flu April Editor Hawthorne of The TimesUnion publishes an open letter bo President Harrison stat ing that the people of Florida regard the presidents letter to Attorney General Mil ler with surprise and n deep seuse of injury They are convinced that the statements it contains about resistance to legal process in Florida must have been based upon mis information as to the actual state of af fairs iu the counties named which misin formation the editor says was proba bly given by United States officers whom it charges with partisan ship even to the judge declaring that he would bitterly persecute the Democrats He says the grand jury was composed nearly entirely of Republicans that whole sale indictments were found against Dem ocrats on unreliable testimony and that the people preferred to hide rather than submit to unfair trial The reports oi boycotting are denied and the editor says he has the statements of eleven of the mar shals posse that they were treated like gentlemen He closes by saying that il the court is
