Hill arrived here at 0 :30 this afternoon, was met at the station a few. miles fjelow the city by a reception committee beaded by Mayor Blake of Canton, A large throng greeted his appearance bb he alighted from the train. He went 1m raedhtely to District ;Attorney Welty's house, whose guest ho will be until to-morrov., when ho leaveB to apeak at Worcester, in this congres sional district. A torch light parade of Democratic clubs took place to-night, about 1,300 men being in line.

Governor Hill was vigorously ap plauded as he stepped to tne front of the stage at Op. m. and made his speecn. The applause at times dur ing tne governor's remarks was long and hearty. Tne governor arraigned the Ue publican party for its administration of the affairs of tho country. He claimed the administration policy was designed with the end in view of keeping the party in power. He attacked the Repub-licans for what hn called their tyrannical usurpation of power in the house; for passing the McKinley bill, and attempt ing to pans the force bill. He dwelt for some time upon the tariff. Then in conclusion he spoke of 'he contest in this, the Sixteenth congressional district, urging every Democrat to vote for John G, Warwick, Democratic candidate and said: "For McKinley personally I have the highest respect. He is a gentleman of integrity, capacity and many other excellent qualities. As citizen and neighbor, 1 have no doubt, you all think well of him. He will not deny that he is a moat bitter partisan and waa never known to support a Democrat for public position. His friends are now asking complimentary votes in bis behalf. I want you to refuse them becacen he represents prin-\ ciples in which you do not believe. He has no just claim upon your suffrage as Democrat*. There has never been partisan outrage attempted against your party which McKinley has not Bun-ported. He voted to deprive honestly elected representatives of their seats in congress. He sustained every arbitrary ruling of the despotic speaker. He voted for the infamous force bill by which he Beeks deprive your party of every fair opportunity to regain ooutrol of this government. He has been Instrumental in forcing upon the country an unjust tariff measure, which can properly b� designated ub "the Bum of all villiani�s." He giveB you no assurance that be will pursue any different course from that which he had pursued in the paBt He Is not entitled to the vote ot a single true end upright Democrat who reeidea in the district. His friends complain that his district has been "gerrymandered," but McKinley'a voice is silent when his party friends in other states have "gerrymmd-ered" other districts against the Demo cratic party. Fellow Democrats, the eyeB of the whole country are upon this district, watching the great contest in which you are engaged with breathleBB interest. Republican corruption, money obtained from those who have received governmental favor, will be poured into this .district to debauch its electors. The integrity of the citizens of the district is at itake. McKinley cannot abut his eyes to the fact that funds for his campaign are being raised in every locality wherever exist interests this bill has favored at the expense of the consumers of the country. I ask you to meaBure out to him the same consideration which ho extended to those Democratic representatives who were ousted from their Beats by his vote.

A Rhortagn In Some states, but In other* Hotter Than Expeoted. Chicago, Oct. 21.-The Farmer's Review to-morrow will say: A careful examination of estimates furnished by our correspondents reveals the fact that the crop is turning out somewhat better than was expected. The crop in Michigan and Wisconsin is larger than that of last year, and the returns in Minnesota and Dakota are almost ae large as in 1880. Other states, however show a considerable shortage. This is most marked in Kansas and Nebraska, where the crop will bo lees than one-half that of 1880. In several countiea in those states corn is a total failure, at least it is poor in quality and only fit for fodder. Reports from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri and Iowa Btate that while the ears are small, owing to the midsummer drouth, as a rule they are filled and thoroughly matured, grading No. 1 and No. 2. The Review estimates the average yield in Illinois to be 28 bushels an acre; in Indiana, 28; Ohio, 31; Kentucky,23; Missouri, 28; Kansas, 14; Wisconsin, 40; Michigan, 47; Iowa, 80; Nebraeka, ib; Minnesota, 80; Dakota, 28. The crop in the twelve states named is thus estimated: Illinois, 224,028,712; Indians, 105,038,193; Ohio, 9,220,123; Kentucky, 50,020,446; Missouri, 184,580,012; Kansas, 98,247,058; Wieconsin, 41,487,020; Michigan, 41,835,-311; lown, 208,454,880; Nebraska, 74,-484,060; Minnesota, 22,282,010; Dakota, 10,592,044- Total, 1,220,888,374. Deducting from the above gross product the large percentage of unmerchantable corn the Review's estimate of the total marketable corn in the twelve states named is 825.035,253 buBhels. � According to the October report of the department of agriculture the condition of the corn crop in the remaining states not covered by this report is about 83 per cent, of an average. The government reportB show that in 1887 the crop in these BtateB amounted to 524,188,000 bushels; in 1888 to 535,275,000 buBhelB and in 1880 to 580,700,000 bushels. the word M, Reinach fired, but his shot flaw wide of the inork.

Over One-Tenth of the Kuttro Appropriation JHaUo by Oongreas Already Ki-pended In the Way at nnlarlaa-She Secretary Approves the Uy-Laws of the Commission With Reluctauco - Immediate bteps Towards Rolrench-mout. Chicago, Oct 21.-An afternoon paper publishes an abstract of a letter received by President Palmer of the National World's Columbian commission, from Secretary Wlndom in regard to the expenses of the commission. Tne secretary first 8tates that of the $1,500,000 appropriated, $400,000 must be used in the construction of a government building, leaving $1,100,000 for other expenses. For the fiscal year ending June 30tt>, 1801, there 1b appropriated jointly $200,000 for the expenses of tho commission and the uses of the government board of cuntrol. The government board has estimated that it will need $50,000, leaving $150,-000 for the use ot the commission. The secretary then shows that in salaries for officers and other expenses the Commission has disposed of $00,000 of tne $150,000, and that the oxpenseB of the meetings of the executive committee now in Bession and of the meeting ot the commission to be held on Nov. 15, will bring the total up tu $110,000, leaving only $40,000 to i un the oommiBBion ou from mat date until June80,1801. Continuing, tne secretary says: In consideration of tbeforegoingBhowingof expenses 1 nave hesitated at to the ap pruval of the resolutions of the commission fixing the salaries of its officer.) ai described in articles 15 and 10 ot your by laws. The act ot April 25, 18U0, referred to, makes the secretary of tne treasury and your commiBBlon jointly responsible for the proper and reasonable expenditure of tne sum appropriated by congress lor the furtherance of the provisions of the act. li does oven more chan.tbat for it, imposes upon the secretary tne necessity of exercising proper discretion in approving the compensation fixed by your commission fur its oilicers, It is (air to/preBume that congieaa intended by this last mentioned provision of the law to prevent tho giving of what mignt be termed unreasonable compensation to any of the officers of the commission, but in arriving at the determination the tecretary of tne treasury muat take into consideration the opinions of this representative body of>' men. It appears from your lecorde, as before staled, that the commission unanimously agreed that the oilicers named shall be paid the compensation stated, president of the commission $15,0)0, secretary $10,000. director general $15,000, vice-chairman of executive commission $8,000, employes iu oiUces of secretary and director goneral $10,000. If 1 were to give my individual opin-on on this subject, uninfluenced by the acta of your commission, I should not heBitatn to decide that the amount named by your commission lor salaries for its principal ortlcerd, is greater than that probably ronteinplaied by con-greBB in estimating '.he amount necessary to carry out the provisions of, the ac^. The "r^ount of money already expended and tho expenditures in contemplation by your commission prior to Jan. 1, next, contemplate bo large an amount mat it presents an additional reason why I should not approve the compensation, for I alone am responsible for the expenditures. You will observe that vour salary Hat for the year 1891,1692 anil 1893 will, without further increase of employes, amount to $185,000, or about one-seventh of the eutiro euro of money outside of the cost of the government buildings which is fixed as the limit of expenditures growing out of the exposition, I nave grave doubts in view ot the facts aa herein stated, whether I ought not to return the resolution submitted by your commission, for revision as to the amount of compensation to be paid to your officers. On the other hand, I dislike extremely to set up my own personal views in opposition to those of the members of the commission who are more familiar with the matter at issue than myself. I therefore reluctantly approve articles 15 and 10 of your bylaws and beg leave to suggest in this connection that great csre be authorized in exercising further expenditures, to the end that your commission may not create a deficiency for the ensuing fiscal year. Respectfully yours, William Winoom, Seo'y. Immediately after this communication was read before t&6 executive committee Commissioner Martindale offered a resolution, which was adopted, declaring that all standing committees be instructed not to meet before the next Beacion of the commission unless directed by the president. Fivo' standing committees had asked the exeduUve, committee to meet, but none of them will he authorizad by the president.

Losnos, Oct 21.-Mr. Gladetone addressed an audience of 3,000 persons in the corn exchange at Edinburgh this evening. Ireland, he said, continued to eclipse all other subjects. Tho country now fully recognized that the Irish question must be settled before others. The opponents of home rule had hoodwinked and deluded their constituents by pledging themselves agalnBt coercion, promising local government and expressing themselves against granting large advances of British money to buy out landlords, yet their first measure to gain power was coercion. Local government was vanishing in this and there was a proposal before parliament granting �40,000,000 to buy out the landlords. The Conservatives take credit for setting Ireland rightly. Their administration of the law was worse than the law itself. It was- such that the Irish ought to hate the law, though he would not say when they ought to break It. The government itself was a perfect pattern of illegality. Its methods tended to provoke the people. Mr. Gladstone then referred to the Tlpperary affair. It was grossly illegal, he Bald, to close the doors ot the court house against the people. The appointment of magistrates was a gross scandal, not merely because he was an exeoutive officer, but aleo because he had been Involved in a serious personal altercation with Mr. Dillon. If such trloka were played iu England by wantonness of power, a very Bhort way would be found to remedy such abuse, After tho examples of the pollcemeu'e conduct at Mitchels-town and Tipporary it was Impossible to respect tho police or the administration of law by the police. Their brutality and harshness constituted the crowning insult ot absenteeism, the grceaei.t that could be ir llcted on the people at aucb, a time. Mr. Balfour appeared to feel that it waa not a part of thebasinesBof the minister for Ireland tp reside there, besides how many of thoBe present ktew whether there was ft lord nontenant of Ireland Of not. [Laughter.] Nobody heard ot him. Absenteeism, which was one of tho lowest sign degenerations in the last century, eenui now a constant habit of the Irish minister Haunting Mb ubtonce in the face of the people. Britleh taxpayers paid 111,000,000 yearly to the Irish police Birnply to assist in collecting rents for the landlords. English and Scotch landlords met their tenants from Ireland and had not found it necessary to .appeal for tho help of policemen to collect their? rents, |Yot British landlords had lost moro in rente than Irish landlords had. If the government would grant a general election the state of public opinloo.would prove that the country waa won over to home rule. On this great question of Ireland, Mr. Gladstone concluded, the last of the fortresses of bigotry and oopression would go down before the Liberals' attack. Justice to Ireland would rid the empire ot an intolerable nuisance and deep dls- f;race, and would gild with a glow irighter than that of aov former period, the closing years of a gloriouB reign. The speech was received with enthusiastic cheors.
