The ast audience could uo longer restrain it- elf. Every man rose to his feet napkins were waved anil there went forth cheer ifter cheer which might have been heard ike the reverberation of cnnnoii for blocks away And amid the enthusiasm the tutesman, who hud practically said good- by, sank into his seat. The banquet itself was a magnificent affair. Nothing like it, has ever before weu attempted in the Buckaye state. The 1 on rteenth regi- ment armory had transformed uto a fairyland, 'he rafters of its oiling and its walls were hidden from lew by thousands f yards of bright- ol o r e d bunting nd silken flags and aimers innumera- b. Around the oor, rising tier above tier, were the loicest products of the hot house, while bove all towered majestic palms aud exotics. The orchestra was hidden from view lu mass of foliage In turn surrounded with curtain of smilax. At the southern end of the ball, upon a platform heaped with palms and roses in bloom were crayon por" traituie statues of Presi dent Cleve- land and the es- rial guest of the evening. The table of honor rested upon a platform who prize Iti true worth pare American citizenship, iibould Rather here to-night. It is given to contemplate THE "tatesmanihip, the most un yielding and disinterested devotion to thi interest of the people, and the valu able achievements in cause of oui country's welfare, all of which have been stimulated and accomplished through the Influence and impulse of true, unpirrert- ed, sturdy Americanism. We rejoice in example afforded on this occasion of gsnuine American citizenship, revealec to us as a nafe and Infallible interpreter ol duty In all the emergencies of a long and honorable public career, and as an ing guide to usefulness and fame. In this presence and In the atmosphere of these reflections, we should not misa the lesson they commend to us, nor fail to renew our appreciation of the value of this citizenship, and revira our apprehen- sion of the sentiments and conditions in which it its rise and growth. And first of all we should be profoundly grateful that the elements which make up the strength and vigor of American citi- zenship, are so naturally related to onr situation and are so simple. The intrigues of monarchy which taint the individual character of the subject; the splendor which the popular ere aud dis- tracts the attention fromahust's and stifles dibcontent: the schemes of conquest and selfish aggrandizement which make a self- ish have no legitimate In our national life. Here the plain people of the land are the rulers. Their Investiture of power ii only accompanied with the conditions that they lova their country, jealously guard and protect its interests and fair fame, and that all the Intelligence with which they are endowed should be devoted to an understanding of its needs and the promotion of its welfare. These ars the elementsof American citi- zenship, and these are theconditions upon which onr free institutions were entrusted to onr people, in full reliance, at the he- ft lining and for all the time to come, upon American manhood, consecrated by the highest and purest patriotism. A country broad and new, to be subdued the purposes of man's existence, and promisitig vast and independent resources and a ncople intelligently understanding he value a free nation, and holding ast tn an intense affection for its history and its heroes, have had much to do with moulding our American character aud giving it hardihood and vigor. But It should never be forgotten that the influ- ence which, more than all other things, has made our people safe depositaries of governmental jiower, and which has fur- nished the surest guaranty of thestrength and perpetuiiy of the republic, has its tource in the American home. Here our patriotism is born and entwines itself with the growth of filial love, and here our children are taught, the story of our freedom and independence. But above all. here in the bracing and wholesome atmosphere of uncomplaining frugality and economy, the mental and moral at- tributes of our people have been firmly knit and invigorated. Never could it be said of any country RO truly as of ours, that the permanency of Its Institutions' depend upon its homes. I have spoken of frugality and economy as important factors in American life. I find no fault with the accumulation of wealth, and am glad to see energy and en- terprise receive their fair reward. But I believe that our government in its natural integrity is exactly suited to a frugal and economical people: and I believe it is safest in the hands of those who have been made strong and self-reliant m their citi- zenship, by self-denial mid by the sur- roundings of an enforced economy. Thrift and careful watchfulness of expenditure among the people tend to secure a thrifty government; aud cheap and careful living these things led np to their final betrayal to satisfy the demands of those who had supplied the fund for their corruption. This beytrayal was palpable; and it was impossible to deny or couceal the fact that the pretended relief tendered to the peo- in fulfillment of R promise to lighten the burdens of their life, made by the party entrusted with the government, was but a scheme to pay the debts in- curred by tbe purchase of party success, while It further increased the impoverish ment of tbe masses. The people were ut last aroused ami de- manded an explanation. They had been taught for OIK. hundred yeara that in the distribution of benefits their government should be administered with equality aud justice. They had learned tliut wealth was not indispensable to reipertiibiltty and that it did I'litith it, pu-sns nrs to especial guv.-rni.ieiral favors. Humble with scanty Incomes had been en lounged b) the influence and the spirit of onr institutions, to practice ucnn'iny and frugality to tha end thai, theymighl enjoy to the utmost the rewards "of their toil. The influence of the American horns: was still about them, lu their simplicity they knew mi.hiiig of aneu dispensation whici made cheapness disicpntable, anil the still loved the cheap omits of Lincoln an Gsrfield, anil hundreds of their country men whom they held in veneration. Am these unsophisticated Amp-leans, un conscious of t.heir wrong-doing, demandet the redemption of party pledge and clamored for cheapness, in order that they might provide the necessaries and com orts of life for themselves aud their 'amiliea at the lowest possible cosr. The leaders of the party, which was :aught in the act of robbery and which yas arnigned by the people for a viola- lon of us mist, were forced bytheir sad iredicmiuiiii to a desperate expedient. To ttempt to reverse the current of true Americanism aud discredit the most hon- rable sentiments belonging to American imnhood. vit-re the disgraceful tasks of hose, who insulted our people by the an- ouncement uf the doctrine that to desire i'eapneas was to love Hastiness, and to j-actice economy and frugality was un- American. Thus do we plainly see that when the path pointed out by patriotism and Amer- ican ciUn-n.hip is forsaken by a party in power, for schemes of selfishness and for unscrupulous conspiracies for partisan success, its course inevitably leads to un- just favoritism, neglect of the interests of the masses, entire perversion of the miss- Ion of republican institutions, and, in tome form, to the most impudenband out- insult to true American senti- It cannot be denied that political events in the past, have uone far toward encour- aging arrogant party assumption. Every thoughtful iinil patriotic man has at times be-n dihuppoiuted and depressed by tbe apparent indifference and demoralization of the people. But such reflections have no place in the felicitation, o- to-night. This is a time when faith mourcountrymen should be fully ru-establishe The noise of a re- cent political revolution is still heard throughout the land; the people have just demonstrated that tliere is a point beyond which they cannot be led by blind parti- sanship, and that they are quite compe- tent to examine and correctly decide political questions concerning their and their welfare They have unmerci- fully resented every attack upon true American manhood, and have taught party leaders that, though slow to they tiike terrible revenges when betrayed They permit us to forgive our honored guest for all the cheap he has ever worn, for thev have declared tliem to be in fashion. They havo also decreed that A CRAZY MAN DROWNED. A FluUndnr'o Death at Silver Crei-k. An unknown man, short, thick set and about thirty years old. was put off ut Silver Creek on Wednesday night by Conductor Morgan of the seventh sec tion of eastbound freight train 4ii on the Lake Shore, lie had eot on at Brocton. This was at eleven o'clock, and the watchman at the depot gave him a place to sit in the statlm all night. About five o'clock yesterday morning the man became raving mad, and yelled and screamed until the watchman was alarmed and sent for Christopher G m- ther, a constable who lives near, who handcuffed the madman. At six o'clock he quieted down, aud Gtinther took him home to keep him until day. when he had decided he would take the mm to the poorhouse. At seven he took him to breakfast. The inau was u foreigner, and could speak only two words, "Fiulandcr" and "Brocton." At the hotel the constable took the man to a room, which he found locked, and left him alone while he went for the key to open it. The handcuffs were uo longer on him, and while he was gone the Finn escaped and went down back of the ho tel, through a lumber yard, waded tin creek, and ran off to the shore of thi lake.
