addressed a large audience at Saundors opera house in this ML Pleasant SSJS was mostly but quite a num ber of our democratic friends came in to SOlPel to Bill and they heard it And they will never forget it There was never iach a speech on the tariff made in this part of the state be because Horr has never been here As an apostle of protec he is a genuine ae scored the democratic free traders Irom away and made many palpable hits that kept tho audience in a roar for two hours and en the demo crats sometimes had to He showed that which was sell ing at four dollars a barrel while on the free has been reduced in price under a high un til now in within sight of his own within any week in the a million barrels can be bought for fifty cents a This price includes the cost of the barrel itself which Is twenty two cents at the same time the tariff ou it is thiritytwo cents a Accord Ing to the free he thought the manufacturers were giving away their and giving four cents besides to get somebody to take it But it is impossible to give a synop sis of his It was a protective speech that will do much to enlighten the people ou this much abused Towards its close his reference to Governor Gear was greeted with tho most loud and pro longed cheers and waiving of hats and This evening at Old Business was escorted to the same hall by the Young Mens Republican club from the Iowa Wesleyan and their yell could bo heard all over The opera house is crowded to its and while I write Gear is making one of his characteristic speeches to Pleasants best Although a little hoarse from continuous talking of the gov ernor is making many excellent points and giving the finishing touches to the coffin that is to contain the democratic corpse that will be uade one week from There will be nobody shucking corn on election day this fall in High Uenry Dut every republican will be at tho and enough of them to give Gear a majority of 700 in tho Special to The Wo have had a double feast This afternoon lion Horr of unquestionably one of the best stump speakers in the United addressed our citizens in the opera house and this ivening Governor Gear The afternoon meeting was largely composed of some coming tencand twelve miles to hear the famous Michigan orator discuss tho tariff for that is the only and allabsorbing theme of public dis cussion and one in which Horr fairly He has been in the can vass since having partici pated in numerous joint debates in 2sew York at various county fairs and where extraordinary large audiences came to lear the great question of the day ox pounded by prominent speakers of both Horr is singularly happy in discussion of that kind and wor ried Congressman Springer of Illi nois and Congressman Wilson of West Virginia not a little by lis ready rejoinder and witty He demonstrated today that he is quite at joine on the He has made it a ifelong He has visited vast numbers of manufacturing establish ments in the United States talked with manufacturers and workingmen and fore men he has ascertained the cost of labor and material and the relation of tho tariff to each industry so that when his opponents indulge in glittering gener alities he slips their wings by calling them down to every day and when they make misstatements or extravagant assertions he pins them down to the real As an instance of this we may mention his travesty up on the free trader howl about free raw material of which we hear so The raw material of iron is the ore as it lies buried in the When it is mined it represents so much labor ex pended upon When the coal is dug ind the coal and ore are put in the smelting furnace the product has an in creased representing that much labor expended in its There fore pig iron is not raw I visited a large locomotive works at said and inquired about the cost of locomotives and found that they cost from to ac cording to their 1 asked the foreman how much rawmaterial there was in the highestpriced locomo He said he did not know he would have to figure It out be fore lie could give a definite He afterwards told me that the raw ma terial in a locomotive costing is deducting the thirtyseven dollars from the total cost of the locomo tive leaves for the value of tho abor on tho finished The re publican party proposes to protect that of American and it the democratic party wants to chase after let them have Laugh ter and Horr Is one of tho most delight fully entertaining tariff He keeps his audience in perpetual good junior and at the same time carries most earnest The audience was mostly intelligent many of them good sprinkling of with a business Upon tho stage were Senator Governor Senator Governor Newbold and other prominent republicans of Henry It was worth standing room to see those veterans laugh and clap their at Horrs telling Senator HarT lans grave and countenance broke down under tho sharp of wit and humor and Governor Gear forgot all about tho fatigues of tho canvass
