It is estimated that there Are if Tuluo people the fair grounds. Governor Cleveland accompanied by private Secretary colonel dan Lanion and adjutant general Farnsworth. Arrived this morning. At tie governor s special request no demonstration was Jade at that hour aside from a palate Twenty one guns by the Cleveland Battery. The Patty was met at the depot by Liei tenant governor Hill . M. H. Arnold and a number prominent citizens. Governor Cleveland commenced speaking at 2 45, and spoke from a Carriage in front manufacturers Hall and was introduced by the president the fair. Immediately after Cleveland arose a great cheer went up from the outlet 15,000 people shouting themselves hoarse. His remarks were listened to with great attention and were often interrupted with cheers. Seven thousand men were in line to night in the Parade in Honor governor Cleveland. The procession was two hours in passing the reviewing stand. When the Parade was dismissed the governor entered his hotel and held an informal reception. In the course the evening the governor was presented with a Banner bearing his portrait the head encircled by four stars typifying sobriety Justice honesty and he form. Behind the Hills was seen just rising the Sun labelled the governor retired for the night. To Morrow he attends the funeral Secretary Folger at Geneva. Democratic Hopes. New Yoke sept. A a senators Gorman and Jonas and b. B. Smalley were in charge the democratic National Headquarters today. State senator James Pierce said i have been spending some time in Maine Ana i believe will be beaten for Congress i was surprised to find so Many Ile publicans there against Blaine. Tie Blaine Repoli cans Are however making desperate Eli Orts for a Large majority Quot general Durbin Ward Ohio said Quot we have Hopes Ohio. We have carried it in the last two october elections and i see no evidence defection. We have unfortunately our own internal feuds and strikes in the state but they Are rather personal and will not affect the canvass. Of course we have difficulty in carrying the state. We never have carried it in any presidential contest for thirty years. We have not carried it twice in succession for Twenty years until the last two years. This fact gives me Hope that the gain is appalling news from Labrador and Newfoundland. St Joi n. F., sept. 8. latest Labrador news is appalling. The codfish catch is Short 500,000 , and the Northeast coast Nelfo Windland a famine is imminent. About 800 families Are reported starving and sustaining life for the present equips.

A Large Western Schooner with All bands was lost the Virgin beefs Placentia Bay. Another was lost with every Eoal mistaken Point for the democracy Delaware county an Lui Inemise crowd and Trein ii it ious Kii thus Iasmi speech Quot governor Hendricks. Special to the Sentinel. Or xciind., sept. 7, greatest democratic mass meeting eve held in Eastern Indiana was held in this City yesterday. I arly in the morning the streets were thronged with people at least ninety per cent whom were enthusiastic supporters Cleveland and Hendricks. Tivey came in Large delegations from Madison Jay Grant and All adjoining Cottu ties. Wagons driven by from four to eight horses loaded with la Dies elegantly dressed and wearing Cleveland Caps came in Ironi several Points. Bands music and drum corp were numerous and added greatly to Tje thu a the Day. At noon go a errors Graj and Hendricks were met at Tiro Cipot by several Hundred people and were escorted Iii town being cheered All Alon the line. Their speeches at the Grove were listened to by 7,Uoo to 10,000 people and were Well received. Colonel i. B. was also present and spoke to his comrades i arms in a most telling Way. At night governor Hendricks received his hosts friends at the residence . Frank Leon. Whenever he was seen the people sent up a shout which showed the estimation in which he is held by them. My. Hon drinks Rei Xii in the coarse his speech governor Hendricks said it is now Twenty give years that the Republican party have Controneo tie add ministrative and executive ail airs Tonii country and it is first importance that you my i should consider the Jues Tion whether that is not As Long As one set men ought to continue in control. In Olfier words the question a before us ouf it there not to be a change Quot that is the first Quon Ioa that strikes your attention and mine. How much has transpired Ince the lie publican party came into Power and i do not choose to include in that period the Iier Iod the War i ask your Attenson Only for tie last Nineteen year during which i that party has controlled the administrative and executive Alln the country. 1 not find figures words to express to you the Ena Mons sums Money that live been collected and the enormous sums Money that have been paid out. I wiil refer by any illustration briefly to one year the last Jear Anrep red by the Secretary the Treasury the collections and expenditures amounted to 8663,000,000. The history Tii Ose transactions Are found in Many thousand volumes and they were recorded by Many Tsiou Sands men men belonging to one party Only. To democrats have been allowed to participate in any the affairs tie country. I speak in substance. An occasional Democrat May have been allowed an office but for great purposes in administering the Alldis the government democrats have been excluded and to you men the question is presented now Quot ought there not to be a change Quot who knows what is wrong in the books should they be opened shall there be Opportunity for we men to know what has been wrong in the records the country so that we May know whether it is Well ill with the country the tatter . May i ask your attention to another illustration Tais subject 1 do not claim that one Noliti Cul party in first place in organization is probably any More honest than another. If we had not political parties in this country and we were going to establish two political parties and were we to run a line through this crowd Aud men that bide were to be one Narty and men this Side the other party the chances Are that there would be just As Many honest men one Side As the other and As Many rogues one Side Perfi aps As the other. But take another step in this thought. Suppose this party comes into Power and it becomes established that it is going to retain Power for Twenty years have the control offices control the Money and the country Don t you see Attiat All the rogues this Side would gradually come Over and join the Strong Side is not that human nature and More than that. Don t you know that As they came Over they would gradually pub honest men this Side Back and Back until they would take control the party themselves to a very Largo extent that would prove to be the human nature the Case without discussing the que Tion whether the Republican parly has been guilty great fraud for i leave that to your own reflection. I assume thit the around that no p it that has been in Power exclusively not allow ing the other party to participate in the Aoh the government for a Long period time. Then there ought to be a change that the people May co i j to know with Home degree Cut it i by How with their affairs. Cries Well Nave it this wont turn tiie>1 All out. I do not expect gentlemen that All the men now in office will be turned out. I Don t desire that. When a Republican governed by his conscience and convictions has been in office and proven himself to be a True Aud honest Man in the administration that office. 1 do not ask that he be turned out. But i ask that honest men shall be placed in office Sutic gently numerous to give the people this country information in regard to their affairs i have one step further to go in this argument. 1 am trying to establish the proposition that there ought now to be a change. I do not know Why the republicans for the last Nineteen years have said to every Democrat Quot von shall have no position in the control the affairs the they have seen lit to occupy in that position a cruel prescriptive policy sex. Eluding every Man Liat did not agree with them and what do you think it my countrymen ? shall it be continued any longer cries the Treasury. To what condition have we come i refer now to the statement made by . Calkins Republican candidate for governor in his speech at Richmond a. Few weeks ago. He said we now have 8100,000, in the Treasury. Do you know How he came to say that he said that by Way Braggadocio by Way taunt to the democrats. He 8bid the Republican party when it came into Power found an empty areas try and now it has ,0 to in the Treasury. Do you want to hear my opinion what is a fortunate condition the country Well it is not in having a Treasury overflowing. It is not in co Floeting from the people untold millions Money that it it May be hid away in the vaults the Treasury. At , to Day they Are digging new vaults and adding to the old vaults to As to find room for putting away the people s currency. It is a matter wag a. Is it True that the republicans have now in the Treasury 8400,000.000? and that gentlemen is one half tie paper currency the country. There is locked up in the Treasury sioo.000,000. A you desire that if to vote for . Calkins vote for the Republic a candidate for president for they boast to you that they have locked up 8100,000,000 your Rooney. What right has a government to use s4c0,c00,000 the people s Money that it hns no Occo Elon to use in the administration Afla Irb what would be the effect if taxes were reduced so that Money would come Hack into your pockets and into the channels Trade Don t you know that it would stimulate Enterprise do you not know that it would give employment to Labory is shall i Stop now acid speak the present condition our county then and now four years ago when you knew it was flusher times and everything was Well with the people wheat was Worth tl.20, and labor was Well paid end Republican orators came to you and said Quot ily countrymen won t you let Well enough alone Are you willing to turn the Pirty out that has brought you such Prosperity Aud put a party in that you do not know what Vili be the c Jose quenches and to that Appeal the people listened la own Mitnow Are men employed Are furnaces throwing out fire and smoke that indicate sue Vessini Enterprise and Industry. I have hero a clipping from an Indianapolis p Iper yesterday the evening news perhaps the Best edited paper the Republican party in that City the statement the amount the Fri litres that have recently taken place in the country. It is a dispatch from new York and says that Tho business fair ures throughout the country for the last seven Days reported to r. Of. I an they Are great authorities that subject. The number for the United states 199 Canada a total 213 As against a total l in last week showing an increase seventeen failures Liis week Over last week. In other words it is a per cent More for the week that ended Veste Day than for the week before that an increase i i failures s per cent. And How can it be other Vise when Tipiere is this enormous portion the people s currency locked up in vaults at inc Treasury Send that Money out More into the channels Trade and wheat won t sell at a begging Market for 02 cents 72 cents and 7s cents a Bushel.

A terrible at Cleveland ten car Cost lumber and Frame buildings fire at once Heli get it it Legrair lied for to various places , o., sept. 7.�?a great conflagration is raging tue Flats. The entire lire department is in service and telegrams have been sent to Akron Youngstown Gainesville Erie and Toledo for assistance. The origin the fire is unknown. Incendiary so a suspected by some but the most probable theory is that Sparks from a tug set tire Early in the evening to a pile shavings from which spread until Woods i Erry it g is extensive lumber Yard was ablaze. Thu fire continued to extend defying All efforts the firemen. The lumber Yards Potler Birdsall amp co and 0. A King t co. Were also consumed. A variety Iron works Are destroyed Stanley s Candle factory by Ned and part Sherwin Williams so co s Earnisti works and at 10 clock the conflagration threatens to become still More extensive. About ten acres lumber and Frame buildings were aflame at one time and huge Clouds smoke thickly studded with blazing cinders were blown by the Chan. Ing wind for Miles causing intense excitement lest the myriads Sparks a bound kindle fires in every direction and Perli aps Lay waste a Large part the City. The alarm was turned in at g 50 clock by the night watchman Joe simians acid his Story throws no Light the cause the lire. He said Iliad .�u3t completed my rounds and arrived at the Mill. I went As usual All Over the ground both sides Carter Street and along t he liver and made sure there was no fire anything else wrong in the Yard. I went through tie Mill and after this was going to sit Down outside the door when 1 saw a Bright flame shot up in the air right the Middle the lumber piles Between our Yard and King s. It was in our no 1 Alley and the moment i opened the door i ran for Box 13, under the new York Pennsylvania and Ohio Bridge Carter Street. Then i came Back Aad the engines were Here in a few moments at 7 30 the fire waa confined to an area 200 feet Square and in the midst this the flames were savagely Barning and beading out myriads Sparks and Light Pine torches Quot slowly the fire gained the firemen the Sparks being carried Over their Heads by the wind which had begun to Rise and would set fire to a Small spot in the Center a pile lumber. Because the height and the fierceness the flame nothing could be done until the flame reached the end that pile when a Stream would be directed that Way. The lanes alleys were so narrow that it was impossible to get a Stream to play any but the edges the differ eat sections the Limber. The spot where the lire started was built Green lumber and put in from the Michigan Pine Woods and though in would t be expected to Burn Well Quot the heat was so intense that the element continued beyond the Power the department to control. By s clock it was in alleys 3 and 1, and As the area burning Wood became larger the men were forced to spread out 8.nd less effective work could be done. At this time some firemen were in alleys almost completely surrounded by tire and to keep them Fiona burning the Stream water was directed against them. Nearly every Man was thus wet Down and Only thus could they accuse Comfort. At clock Carter Street became impassable. The heat prevented any one Foroi going by the buildings Andonov in some places could the firemen stand. The owner the variety Iron works had Baba the roof their Large Brick build jul for a half hour past throwing water and guarding it in Hopes that the fire might be kept in Bounds arid they a cap3 without loss. They succeeded in pulling out the flames ii several places which had caught from Sparks until the Region their in Riding became rid hat and they were successful in their object but at s clock tie Lui uber in the Yard c.

It was dirty and the engines would get clogged. In this manner one the engines which had been throwing a Stream the Southwest Side the Yard near the Railroad was forced to suspend work for a time for repairs. At i clock the fire seems practically under control. Ile Lief engines arrived from Akron and Erie and others Are expected. The entire militia the City is ordered to be in readiness if necessary to do i 0lice duty but have not yet been ordered out. No serious accidents Are yet reported. The loss will aggregate from �2,000,000 to $2,500,000. The Maine Eleanon. The state election in 3iaine.

The presidential rate Gener ally gains the gubernatorial vote the same year owing to the slackened exertions the Defeated party. Therefore to the winners the majority to Day May be added a fair increase for the. Residential majority in november. The vote isso was the heaviest Ever cast. Governor Robie has served one term he is popular and the highest character John Bredman the democratic candidate is a younger Man popular everywhere respected and there is no reason Why each should not command a full party vote. Although the interest is in the presidential contest and outside comparisons will be made with 1880, the figures the most recent vote that 1882, will be used for press comparisons in conformity with usual custom in order to give the closest possible estimate what the present year s vote will be.
