[Laughter and applause.) 1 oMeot to men oomlnK ttoiu states wuere a Kepublicart meeting like thin otnnot bo held under penalty of death. I object to their coming here from states where io-aay.in onoof them, a conversion in being held. oompoBed of members of one polit-�oal organization with the avowt'd purpose of nullifying one of the constitutional MnondmentB of the United Htntcs, and dinfranc.hining more than v the constitution ami laws of this country. [Applause] The consniracy is understood. The people of Kansas havo at, laht opened their eyes to it, and I should like very much indeed to know whether' or not those who for four years endured the hardships and privations of the march, the bivouao and the camp, the men who endured the dangers and havoc of battle in order that this country might lie free, that this ilig might be inaihtaiiio'J, that the supremacy of (be constitution am: the laws might be secured, are intending to turn their backs on that magnificent and majestic history and march after that member of congree� who came here a few weeks ago from that state that has within its confines the horrors of the hell or Andersonville. |Ur) yrationfl, that have grown up as one of ths great mentj0�B of modern eoci ety. But tne Republican pari}' "as dioir With them. At the very time wheu Hit) opposition convention to Republicanism assembled iu this city on Maroh 20, last, aud culminated by a resolution of disapproval against me among others, we were passing In the tenatejof the United States tne anti trust bill, which had been :e ported from the committee of which I am a member, and which pasBod the ten-ate, and at that very hour I was advocating it In a speech, and I also offered an .amendment to prevent the pernicious practice of gambling in agricultural products, and Healing in option.! und futures, which in my judgment has been one of the most, deleterious of all the practices by which ugriculture han suffered. Under aad by virtue of the oper ations of that anti trust bill we have al-ready strangled the sugar trust, wo haye got the clutches of the law upon the Btandard oil tniBt, and by the continued oporationB of that statute 1 believe that these pernicious aggregations of capital will he ultimately rendered impossible and Anally destroyed. [Applause.] Because everything is not right, because there ure some quarter sections of land upon which it does uot ruin, because some meu have given mortgage!) Which they are uot able to pay, because we had a delirium that swept over the atate some two yearB ago, from which many have become discontented and bave dreamed that the � hole framework of society was going wrong becauee of these things, are we to be told that wean-to upset and overturn and destroy this great system under which magnificent re � suits have been obtained. TUK UIOII AMD TirU TOOK. '.; Notwithstanding ad these dilHculties; notwithstanding ull this injustice, 1 al-firm that It is not true of linn period that the rich have grown richer and the poor have grown poorer. 1 aUirm ou the con- :: trary that there never bus been a time since the angel with the darning ^".vord Stood before tne galea or K.leu, w.'ien the dollar of the rich man invented would pay so small a return as it does to-day, . and there never has been an hour since the time Adam went forth to earn his . bread in the sweat of his brow when the day wage earner could buy so much of everything essentially necessary to the well being, the happiness and the comfort and prosperity of himself and his family, as it will on this ISOth day of October, 181)0. OUB ItKAL UURDKMa. The burdens that uilltoi society are voluntary. The taxation that is felt is self-imposed. It is the bonds that have been voted for unnecessary and superfluous railroads. It is the appropriations that have been made for unnecessary and supeilluoiiB public buildings. It is the taxes that are paid to extravagantly sala lied officials. X*. la the mortgages that bave been given to purchase superllui ties, that the great burdenB and di 111 mil-ties of this uge are to be attributed, aud 1 deny and disavow absolutely the alio Rations that the legislation that haB been enacted by the Republican party ia re sponsible for tri-m* burdens. 'rUUU'KINl.KYUIIX. Wo bave beeu censured on account of the McKinley Unit bill, and about all : tb.6 evlla that alii ol human life, including diseases at d r&ilroud accidents, are LOW beiug atiribmed to the Intluences ot 'Uifttbill. Iu pursuance of a conspiracy to you that instead of tne McKinley tariff bfll being a burden upon production, ���'�i tipoD the agrloulture, upon the labor of this cou try, It 1b the moB' �ciemiflo flaanoial- measure that has ever been adopted this couutry. [A,iplauBe] I voted to out many articles upon the free Hut that were afterwards placed upon the dutla ' bie list by the conference report, I be jieved that they were demanded by western interest I should have been tflad If some changes could be uv.do But I finally v "ed for the c inference ro nort for a 8""�s many �ubstantlaJ and t>at wfactory reasons. 1 voted for it in the first place hB.ia.isa it put sugar on the free list, and �� he �ax�s upon tho people of c�lon. I voted f� i Mr President, be- cause it recognized for the flrat time in tho history of this country the doctrine of reciprocity, an laid down by the great American apostle of that doctrine, James U. Ulaine, of Maine. (Great applause.] Wo have, slid by that bill to all nations ol the earth that w� hereafter Intend to contend with you for the supremacy in the markets of the world, ileyond and abovo all, 1 voted for the conference report on the McKinley bill, because it was opposed unanimously by the Democratic par.}' and (Iroat Britain combined. [Ap-pltiiiBe.) PRISON A1. OIJHfill VATIONH. 1 feel before 1 take my leave of you, fellow citizens, that perhaps 1 ought to makoafew personal observations. My relations to this campaign are peculiar, and not wholly voluntary. I have beeu brought into it by the operation of forces net wholly within my control. The ac usaiiuiie against ine havo been such that perhaps it im due to those who have so ng honored me with their confidence thai 1 make a " word of reply. It u man becomes suddenly wealthy in the public service without viHible means for the transaction of business 1 admit that it ia the justob-ject of criticism. I desire to observe in response to the accusations that hsve beeu made against me in that connection that the greater part of my belongings 1 owned when l entered the senate, having acquired them by fifteen years' practice at the bar, and if I wore to be suddenly removed Irom the sphere of this life my estate would not suffice to enable my family to remain comfortably together during the dependent period of my children. It is alleged that I havo been delinquent and taithless iu my obligations to the surviving veterans of the Union irmy. I have thiB observation to make about that: I introduced a bill for the arrears of penBionB iu 1817. t There was no limitation In it. I have Introduced a bill at every congress since looking to the grant ing of arrears of pensiouF, without limits tion aBto tho operation or tho statutes. 1 voted for the disability dependent pension bill of the l�et setsion. Hot be caiiBe it was what I demanded, or what I thought was just, but because it was the best 1 could get. If I can not get a whole loaf-1 will get a half a one, If I can't, get a half a one I will take anlico if it is well buttered, and try to get the rest tho next time. 1 am dedicated to the ac coraplishments of thoso two great acts of national juttice, and so IB the Republican party. The removal of the limitations in tho act of granting arrearp of pensions, aud the passage of an act that will place upjnthe pension rolls for service, irre sportive of disability, every soldier of the republic who bears an honorable discharge. (Applause.] a.\* .'HimwcKNT du::am. yome days ago I received a letter from a man in Sjuth Dakota who wished me to to t�ll him what 1 meant by an 'iridescent dream." 1 replied that oftentimes when referring to tho Democracy I used wordR that I did not exactly know the meaning of myself, and referred him to the dictionary. Democratic paperB have said that I do urrd that in politics the hiring of lies-r-i-ins and the disobedience of the laws of tho decalogue were justifiable. 1 did not Bay thone things were justifiable. 1 was not formulating an opinion. I was jtiBt reciting tho fact thatlhoy were done. The golden rule is not always considered in politics, Wheu a Democrat steals our coat, we do not give our cloak. When a disciple of the opposition hits mo on the right cheek 1 do not turn the other, but slug him one at the butt of tho left ear. (Great laughter and applause,] Tint su.vuit iin.i,, 1 was unqualifiedly for free coiunge oi silver, five tiineB waH a paper brought to mo with the signatures of thirty-Bovon senators, and it was Baid that if I would sign tho compromise, forty-three sena tors, giving a majority, would favor it. 1 believe, however, that the bill we flnnliy passed is in many respects better than a free coinage measure. It uses up '.he silver product of this country. It gives an annual increase to our circulating medium of over $00,000,000. Under free coinage, at present, silver might have increased in volume until it exceeded that of gold and at that very moment silver coinage would bave stopped by natural law. The issuca of tho campaign are made tip, the argument Is closed. I appeal to ) on to lorget your dissensions. I nppeal to you to disregard the fatal traditions of an off year. 1 appeal to you on Tuesday night to unite once moro in support of that party upoa whoso banner is in scribed tho victorious legends of the industrial independence of the American people, and tho continual unity of tho American republic.

Several more arrests were made to-night, most of them being negroes, who are supposed to be the spies with whom tho agents, Smith aud Larkin, worked among the miners. PreBideut R. D, Hunter of the Texas and Pacific Coal company, whoBe interests have been most affected by the operations of tho men under arrest, Bays that he has proof of a conspiracy between Colorado coal companies to close up the TexaB and Indian territory mines becmise the latter are occupying a trade heretofore controlled by the former. The Bcheine was to draw oit the forces of the Texas and territory mines so that they can't Ull the orders, Smith and Lirkin assert that the methods they have employed to get men from tho Thurber mines are the same used in all parts of the couutry where minern are in demand. They say there iB no conspiracy; that they came here hefcaUBe they had heard that, meu at Thurber were (11b salirdt-dand were anxious for other employment. V hen they enmo they found the men not only willing Ut leave, but, as the Colorado miues were much more profit ihle to work iu, the men needed no misrepresentations to induce them to induce them to make the change. The part played in the arrestB by the State Uanper force in much commented upon. ThelUogers are thnugnt to have over-fteppeo their authority when they interfered in a case like this, where the civil authorities were able to cope with the d.lliculty. _ Th� strike on" Omaha, Neb , Oct 31.-The Brother hood operators who were discharged by the Western Union Telegraph company to day entered into an agreement to withdraw from the llrotherhnod, and all similar organizations, and with this un derntandlng will ro enter the service of the company at once, as there 1b a great ileal of business a d the present force is coup-lied to work over hours to handle it.

No man who has por-u ided himself to believe this uubo.-omod woe has tho heart to throw corn t-hlB hogs the morning afterward, or a.-k ask grace at the breakfast table for mercies spread. Wot a blessing wo enjoy is ever mentioned; these statute boukn of Kansas are full of them, passed by a Republican leg islature; a homestead of 100 acres with out limitation bb to value, to which the wife and children have as much right ac the man; toward which no creditors eye can ever turn, says tho supremo court; n wife is made an equal partner wita h r husband.
