BLAINE HEARD FROM.
His Voice Raised in Support
WITH HIS OLD-TIME VIGOR
A Distinguished Gathering at the
Home of the Vice Presidential
Blaine Has Spoken.
J.unea G. liluiuc lias spoken; the
magnetic man of Maine Ii.m thrown
the weight of his utterances into
the campaign, lie lum silenced the
democratic claim that he wan dis
K'rtiatttlcd by t-arnestly, und with
much of his old-time vijior, pro
claiming the republican cause and
advocating the election of the Har
rison mid K'eiil ticket. His speech
wasdelivered un.ler uniipiecircum
stances. There were no cut and
dried arrangement:1; no set pro
gramme; hut when informed at 5
o'clock yesterday afternoon that the
residents of White 1'lains anil the
surrounding villages intended to
serenade him at Ophir fi rm, the res
idence of Whitelaw Keid, where he
was visiting, that evening, the ex
secretary turned to his host and
said: Then I will speak to them."
I'cllow I'ituens of New York: I
should be churlish indeed if I did
not make response to your call
after you have come peveral miles
to the beautiful home of Mr. K'eid
on a pleasant October evening. At
the fame time I am not making
speeches in the canvass, far the
reasons are well known to my
friends ami which have no con
nection whatever with politics.
Generally administrations, in n
presidential election.are challenged
on account of the condition of the
business of the country and I sub
mit that the republican adminis
tration of l'tesident Harrison can
triumphantly endure such a test. I
doubt if since the government of
the United States was instituted,
anybody, at any time, has seen
what we call "jood times" so tfen-t-rnl,
taking in so many interests
and spreading prosperity through
out the whole domain of trade. I
iiiiht appeal to New York if the
city lias ever passed a season
more satisfactory in financial re.
spects than lor the past two years,
in which the general effect on
capital and labor has been more
The opponents of the republican
party always represent New Y'ork
as a commercial city and not a
manufacturing one, and yet the
product of the manufactures of the
city in placed at f 7iH),iXK,(KN). Any
thing that would cripple that great
interest would cripple the metrop
olis seriously and to a very hurtful
extent. More men in New York get
their living from pursuits pro
tected by the tariif than from any
other source. I know New York is
the center of our commerce, the
great entrepot of our trade; but all
the men engaged in commercial af.
fairs in and about New York, are
smaller in numbers than the men
engaged in manufactures. Nor, if
you go west, where the democrats
this year are making considerabls
effort and doing a vast amount of
boasting, will you find it different.
Take Michigan, Ohio, Indiana or
Illinois and the products of manu
factures are greater in pecuniary
amount than the products of agri
culture in these four great agricul
tural states. So tl at think when it
liappens to democratic orators who
are on the wing trying to arouse
the hostility of these states against
the protective tariif, they will en
counter a sentiment of which they
have not dreamed. We learn from
the democratic parly that these
western states are in a desperate
condition. The amount of their
farm mortgages roll up in the mil
lions. You would suppose it fabul
ous that the amount of money they
embrace could ever have been so
invested. This is not so among the
fanners in New York; it is not so
aiming the farmers of Connecticut;
it is not so among the fanners of
l'cnnsyl vauia; iv is not so among
the farmers of any other state near
by whose condition can be easily
learned, but by a singular fatality
it is the western states that they have
to go. It is easily learned, by a
singular fatality, it is the eastern
states that have got all these farm
mortgages burning them and tak
ing the life out of the people I do
not like to state that the gentlemen
have voluntarily misrepresented
the facts, but before accepting
them as such, you w ill do well and
wisely to demand the proofs. The
tariif, so the democratic papers say,
is the origin of a plutocratic gov
ernment when wealth shall rule and
poor men shall not get their rights.
I shall venture to challenge any
statements of that kind, and I shall
make the democratic accusers the
judges in the case. A careful
examination of the list of the
wealthy men in the country has
been published, and has demon
strated the fact to be quite the re
verse, to such an extent indeed that
in the city of New York, taking the
first laO fortunes, not three and two,
not more than one would be consid
ered as derived from manufactur
I have a word to say about the
Irish vole. I see it stated that the
democrats boast of having the mass
of them in their ranks this year. It
is one of the mysteries of politics
that a question which interests
Kngland so supremely, which is
canvassed almost as much in Lou
don as it is in New York, should
have the Irish vote on the side of
Great Hritaian. If the Iri.-h vote
were solidly for protection they
could defy all tin' machinations of
the democratic party tor free trade I
and throw their influence on the
side of the home market of America
igaiust the side of the foreign mar
ket of Kngland. I know this appeal
has been frequently made to the
Irixli oters, but I in ike it with em
phasis now, for I am unwilling to
believe that with light and knowl
edge before them they will deliber
ately be on the side of their former
oppressors. 1 lliniK my goou menu

Thinks he is Not Insane.
The story of Judge C. k Scott and
his fight with the Hurt county at
torneys who are trying to show him
to be insane has taken a phase in
keeping with its sensational start.
Judge Scott has secured an injunc
tion to restrain'the insane commis
sion from preeeeding in the exami
nation of his case. I he. injunction
was granted yesterday morning on
l representation by Judge Scott
that the case is a conspiracy on the
part of the sherilf, county judge
and attorneys of Hurt county to bar
the wheels of justice and to secure
his retirement from the circuit.
All the attorneys heretofore men
tioned in the proceedings at Hurt
county are spoken of in the petition
as conspirators seeking to drive
him from the bench there. With
them the sheriff and county attor
ney are brought in.
Yesterday morning Judge Irvine
called Judges Kcysor and
Davis into his private office and
showed them the application which
had been filed by Judge Scott's at
torney, Joliu C. Wharton, and a con
ference was held, the result of
which was the issuance of an in
junction restraining the commis
sioners of the insane of Hurt county
from further proceedings in the in
vestigation of the judge's mental
condition. The investigation was
to have been held yesterday.
the hearing ot the application
for a permanent injunction was set
for next Tuesday, and on that day
Judges Irvine, Havis and Keysor
will go down to Tekamah to heat t.
ludge Hopewell relieved Judge
Havis on the criminal docket yes

nal cases so that Jui'ge Havis will
be enabled to get away.
Attorney lv. ?. llartlett, who is as
sisting Mr. Wharton in the defense,
is at Tekamah where he went to
serve the writ. Judge Scott and his
son, I-). A. Scott, were yesterday both

Started to Cut Willows.
One day the fore part of the week
a number of workmen came down
from Omaha and commenced cut
ting the willows on the bar in front
of the city. The chief of police
promptly put a stop to it. Last
night a uother force was brought
down and and put to work this
morning after having been told
last evening by Mayor Hutler that
the willows belonged to the city
and that he proposed to protect
them. This morning Chief Grace
went out where the men were at
work and ordered them to stop,
The foreman came up with the
chief and saw the head man who
was stopping at the K'iley. After
the mayor had shown him the city
charter he concluded he had better
recall the men, which was done.
This afternoon Knginecr Near
who has charge of the men, said
that the willows were wanted for
the purpose of putting in the river
at Omaha where the company, he
represented had the contract for
building the new bridge across the
Missouri at that place. He said it
was necessary that they should get
them at once as they were under
heavy bonds to build the bridge and
that they had to have the willows.
The engineer say that there are
about 2.",(XX) cords on the bar and
that they only need about tHK) cords
and says if the city will allow him
to go ahead he will cut them in
such a maimer that it will not be
noticed, and, furthermore, that he
will hire I'lattsmouth men to do the
work. As The Her alp goes to
press he is in consultation with
Mayor Hutler on the subject, but
no agreement has been reached.
