In Mrs. Cleveland's party were Mrs. Perrine of Buffalo, Mrs. Carlisle, Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Chapin, R. W. Gilder and Dr. F. A. Bottine. Shortly after 9 o'clock Everett P. Wheeler his opening address, re- ferring to the motives of the meeting. Whenever the name Of Grover Cleveland was mentioned tumultuous applause fol- lowed that seemed to have no end. Cries of "Cleveland, Cleveland" often inter- rupted the speaker, and when the ex president was finally introduced there was an ovation. The chairman introduced ex-President Cleveland as the first speaker of the even- Ing. Mr. Cleveland replied to the toast, "The Campaign of as follows: Mr. President and gentlemen: I suppose I have a correct understand- ing of what is meant by' "The Campaign of Education." Assuming this to be so, I desire before going further to acknowl- edge the valiant services in this campaign, of the organization whose invitation brings us together to-night. I may be permitted, I hope, to make this acknowl- edgement as a citizen interested in all that promises the increased prosperity of the country; and I shall also venture to do so as a Democrat who recognizes in the principle for which the campaign has thus far proceeded, a cardinal and vital ioctriue of Democratic creed. If J thus acknowledge the useful services in a Dem- ocratic cause, of any have not claimed long affiliation with my party, I feel that my Democratic allegiance is strong enough to survive such an, indulgence in .fairness and decency. I am, too, at all imes willing that the Democratic party hould be enlarged; and as tending in .hat direction, I am willing to accept and .cknowledge in good faith honest help torn any quarter when a struggle is mding foi the supremacy of Democratic rinciples. Indeed, I have an idea that in the campaign of education it was deemed important to appeal to the reason and judgment of the American people to the j end that the Democratic party should b3 J re-enforced as well as that the activity i zeal of those Already in our ranks be stimulated. If this bs treason in the sight of those who, clothed in Democratic uniform, 1 l-e giad to stand at- the entrance of onr maip and drive back recruits, I can- not help ir.

In aid of this parjwse and, of course, sub- l erdiUMte and accessory td its accomplnh- ment, it became necessary fir.st of all to I arouse the Democratic organization to an "apprehension of the fact that th> cam- paign involved Democratic principle in Jhe advocacy of which, the party ;-houM Be active and aggressive.

I am afraid, however, that if this task may be considered a step in the campaign of education, the word education, as ap- pl ed to those who were to be affecte 1, be construed as meaning the instil- lation of such fear and terror in the mimls of unre-renerate men as leads them to flee from the wrath to come. But even in this unpromising field we are able to report progress. No one whc remembers the hilarity with which the leaders of the Republican party greeted the message of tariff reform, and the con- fidt- nee with which they prepared to meet and crush the issue presented, can fail to see how useful a lesson has been taught them in onr campaign of education. Within twenty-four hours atter the sub- mission to congress of the question of tariff reform, sundry senators and repre- sentatives belonging to the Republican party were reported to have jauntily ven- tilated their partisan exultation in the public press. If it be true that a senator from Ne- braska said "it is a big card for the Re- this big card cannot appear remarkably useful to him now, for his state to-day contains a big curiosity in the shape of a Democratic governor-elect. If the junior senator from New York declared that his party would carry this stare by the largesD majority ever known if they could be given the platform pro- posed, the reply will come when in a few days a Democratic colleague is placed by his side. If a senator from Maine declared "it is a good enough platform for the Republi- want nothing how is it that he is now so diligently endeavoring to find out the meaning of the word reci- procity? If a New Hampshire senator believed that "the Republicans want nothing bet- ter with which to sweep the the trouble his state is giving him to-day must lead bim to suspect there is a mis- take somewhere. If a senator from "Wisconsin gleefully said be was glad to see us "show our hand" he cannot fail to be cominced, when he soon gives place to a real good, sound Democrat, that there was, after all, more in the hand than he cared to see. If the -present speaker of the house sar- castically said "It only shows what fools all the other presidents have been" be may well be excused, since he has lately so thoroughly learned that in the sight- of the people infallibility is not an attribute always to be found in the speaker's chair. If the representative from Ohio whose name is associated with a bill which has given his party considerable trouble of late, said "If the Democratic party had hired Burchard to write a .stump speech it could not have suited us it must be that circumstances leading to his approaching retirement from public life have suggested a modification of his judg- ment. I have spoken of the campaign of edu- cation as it has affected the two great party organizations. It remains to men- tion another and a more important and gratifying feature of its progress. I re- fer to the manner in which access has been gained to the plain people of the land and the submission to their reason and judgment of the objects and pur- poses for w bich the campaign was under- taken. The Democratic party is willing trust the ordinal y in'Hlitrt-nce of our people for an nndi'Tst.-mding of its pri'iriples. Never wa more intellisem. honest and effective effort made in a that made by the Democratic party and its allies in this work.

A Paris DressmakerN Bold Attempt to Defraud the Government. NEW YOIJK, Dec. 24. Mrs. Wil iam Astor recently ordered from a dressmakei in Paris two handsome costumes. She paid for them in advance, including th. sum that would be exacted as duties at the New York custom based on the valuation of ihediesses according to hei dressni .kcr's bill. The two dresses ar- rived here from P.iris on the steamer L Bretagn'last week. The invoice, which the express presented at the cus- tom house, pnt doun the cost of ti.c dresses a; francs. As this was at once seen to be an nn tervalution, the torn house officers seized the dresses and sent the trunk containing them to th public stores that tlie dresses m ght l-e appraised. When Mrs. Astor was com municated with she explained that she ha-l paid the Paris dressmaker 2.000 francs, or ?400, for the two costumes, which was to include the duty. The Frenchman, after charging Mrs. Astor the full amount of duty based on the real cost of the dresses, thought evi- dently to defraud both Mrs. Asror and the United States customs by undervaluing the dresses 50 per cent. This, if it had succeeded, would have got them through the custom at one-half of the 50 per cent, and the dressmaker would have pocketed the difference. As it is now all the cus- toms officials can do, much as they sym- pathize with Mrs. Astor, who has already paid for the dresses, is to lay the case before the secretary of the treasury, who has power, under the law, to permit Mrs Astor to receive the dresses if she.pay the duty once more at their value. This will cost several hundred dollars. Several other attempts to defraud the government and customs of to be shipped from abroad have come to light recently. MRS. PEARCY HANGED. The London Murderess Confesses that Her Sentence Was a Just One. LOSDOX, Dec. Nellie Pearcy was hanged yesterday morning for the murder of Mia Hogg and her baby. Mrs. Hogg was the wife of a London porter. The crowd outside the prison walls set up a loud ci.eer when the black flag show- ing that the woman was hanging on the scaffold was hoisted upon the prison flag- staff. During the night the unfortunate woman was quiet and resigned, and for several hours prayed in company v.ith the prison chaplain. To the latter she confessed that the sentence passed upon her was a just one, though, she said, the evidence upon which she w convicted was false. Says He Was Robbed of BIXGHAMIOV, N. Y., Dec. Gates, a manufacturer of West Superior, who claims to have been relieved of in Elmira, is a son-in- law of George Hull of Cardiff giant fame, formerly of Wisconsin and of this city. He states that Gates is addicted to occasional snrees, but for the past two years has been pretty steady. Jast before Gates started tor Wisconsin to settle hi.- affairs there Hull gave him which he had raised on notes. Gates' wife and their one cnild are now in the citv. She is Bent on Self-Destrortion.

It needed bat little persua- sion on his part to gee the girl's consent, and, throwing up her situation then and there, she Accompanied him to Brooklyn, where they were married, and went to hou-ekeeping in a- tenement at 93 Six- teenth streo% Brooklyn. The parents were much incensed at first, but they soon forgave the couple. A short time after her marriage the dausrhter began to-eomplain to her parents about her husband's treatment of her. He was so jealous, she said, that she could not look -at anyone without his becoming angry. Then, too, he earned but S3 or a week, a sum so small that the greater portion of the time she was actually in dire straits for food. He would not allow her to hunt for a place, however. In about a year she was starved out and went to her parents, where a child was born. It died soon aftsr, however, and Lowitz persuaded his wife to return to him. But times were no af-er a few- months Loth of them went to live with Mrs. Lowitz's parents. Davidson, a cousin of Mrs. Lowitz, ai.out 25 years old, was in the habit of spending part of Sunday at the Braam house and Lowitz grew so jealous of him that even to have speak to Davidson made him furious. ago last Saturday Lowitz abused his wife so brutally at the dinner table for speaking to Davidson that Braum told bim either to quit or leave the house. He left the nest day he carted some of his clothes to his mother's, at 100 At orney streer. He did not go near Braum's housa until about 7 o'clock Monday morning, when he came in and sulkily asked for his wife. She was not in. "Tell her I'd come back." he snapped savagely, refusing an invitation to come in and wait for her. He returned at 11 o'clock, butassLe was still away he walked off moodily, return- ing at to find her at home. "I want you to write a letter for me." he growled in a surly manner. "Certainly. Charlie.'' she answered. "But you need not ask so He led the way into the front room, which is shadowed by the Elevated rail- road structure, and she followed. She seated herself at a small desk at the side of the room and took pen and paper to write. Before a line could be penned, however, the shinning muzzle of a re- volver was thrust into her face and the trigger pulled. A bullet buried itself in her brain, and she fell back in her chair, the blood pouring from a bullet wound in the temple. The poor mother, who was scrubbing in the kitchen, rushed into the room to find Lowitz bending over the face of his dying wife, still clutching the smoking pistol. As the mother paused affrighted on the threshold of the room the wretch levelled the weapon at her as he hissed, uGet back! get backT uDon't kill me! Let me live, let me livel" she shrieked, and turned from the room and rushed down stairs and into the street, murder. Four pistol shots rang out in rapid suc- cession. O'Heirne of the Madi- son street station was on the beat near by, and ran to the house. In the room, bleed- ing copiously from her wound, but still alive, was the young wife, while the hus- band lay apparently dead, stretched upon the floor at her feet.
