ova tions at every topping point At Ilaver hill Mass there was a large crowd and Reed and Henry Cabot Lodge addressed it for twenty The speakers were escorted to the Htand and back to the rnli way by a procession of Republican clubs and upon the train starting it was sent on iU way with a round of cheers Short were made at Exeter Norvmarket and Dover runl at each place ths hearty welcome was repeated and the distin guished travelers spoke for a few min utea The same thing occurred at Salmon Falls North Berwick Kennebunk and Saco The Speukliiff tit Portland Three thousand people gathered at the city luill hero last night to hear the issues discussed Heed was accompanied to the platform by the mayor State Represen tative who presided presented the speaker who was received with a pro longod burst of applause He said that until 1888 a Republican house had not beeu elected since because there was not enough votes but because the votes were not counted down south as they were east or intimidation had pre vented them from being cast Twenty five seats in tho house had been wrested from the Republicans under the open do flant declaration that the southern Demo cratic white man shall not only rule the black man of the south but the white man of the north Tlie llulu of tho Continuing he said that long before the present congress had assembled the nir hud been resonant with the threats of the minority with declarations that they were to rule in utter disregard at the will of the people of the United States At tho very worst no nioasnro should pass which did uot have tho sanction of their high approval If nny man hero thinks they reckoned without their host that they had no foundation on which to build their threats he knows little of the deep laid schemes of many years to render the Re publicans powerless whenever they should get control For years rule has been piled upon rule and decision upon decision to render legislation dependent upon the sufferance of the minority Filibustering lurked in every lino The power of ob struction was without limit Keeping riiitforin Pledges He sniil that a system that enabled onofifth of the members of the house to block legislation rendered elections lessaml called a halt to civilization itself When wo cleared the decks for action there was plenty of work to do and wo have done it to the full meosuro of satis faction We have achieved all that tho Republican party promised and more Most platforms are but gener alities ijood enough for tho campaign but our last platform has been treated by the home of representatives like a deed of trust In proof of this he cited the passage of tho tariff bills and lard bill and declatod that the former was the re sult of tho liuiei of tho whole people Ha said that there was another promise to be kept and that was to enable every man in to vote and have his vote that pledge would also be redeemed Party llognn Ife closed us follows What the house has shown the country that nny house can do is worth a princes ransom Hence forth promim can not be excused except by performance Henceforth great meas ures can not be lost and nobody know what has become oithem Party respon sibility has begun and with it also the responsibility of tho people for they can no longer elect a Democratic house aud hope that the minority will neutralize their action or u Republican house with out being sure that it will keep its pledges If we have broken the prece dents of an hundred years we have sot tho precedents of another hundred years nobler than the lost wherein responsibil ity wilt wait on power ami wherein the people with full knowledge that their servants can actwill choose those who will worthily carry out their will Mr Read also paid a graceful
