Blaine's speeches continue to at
tract the attention of the country.
With all that he says, like Garfield he
makes no mistakes.
We give below some of his recent
utterances, not before published in
the Journal :
East Saginaw, Mich., Oct. 17.
Blaine left Saginaw at 10 o'clock this
morning for Bay City. He and Gen.
Fremont were escorted through the
city to a stand in the park, around
which were ten thousand people.
Blaine was introduced and spoko
briefly, aad introduced Gen. Fremont.
Both were enthusiastically received.
Detroit, Oct. 17. The best arrang
ed reception given to Blaine so far on
his trip through Michigan was at
Flint, dispensing with carriages and
the paraphernalia of a procession.
The local committee bad erected a
stand on a flat car, to which Blaine
stepped from the train. Around the
stand was an enthusiastic meeting of
several thousand people. Blaine spoke
here at greater length than usual.
After calling attention to the protec
tive tariff as a great issue of the
campaign, and expressing his belief
that Michigan, a state so much inter
ested in protection, would follow the
lead of Ohio, he said: "I have re
ceived, since I have been in this state,
two or three letters from persons
asking me to state whether I had ever
been a member of the know-nothing
party. In connection with these in
quiries from persons in Michigan, I
have received some telegrams from
the Pacific coast asking whether I
was not a supporter of Fillmore
when be ran in 1856, as a native
American candidate for the presiden
cy. Let me say, in full and explicit
reply to these inquiries by letter and
telegraph, that I never was a member
of the know-nothing order; that I
never voted for a man who was nom
inated by it, either for a state or for a
national office, and that instead of
supporting Fillmore in 1856, when I
was a young man of 26, I had the
honor to be a member of the national
republican convention which nomi
nated Gen. Fremont, cheers and, as
the general is now on this platform,
be will be able to bear testimony that,
however inefficient my support may
have been, it was very earnest and
very ardent. Renewed cheering.
I was then the junior editor of The
Kennebec Journal, and the paper was
enlirely devoted to Gen. Fremont's
advocacy, and aided in giving him
the largest majority ever cast in
Maine for the presidential candidate
of any party. Cheers. The know
nothing order holds views in regard
to immigration and naturalization
with which I never had any sympa
thy, and Irom which I never hesitated
to express dissent. But, in connec
tion with that subject, let me say that
there arc at present threo wrongs
which, iu my judgment, require cor
rection. First I think that the habit
which has grown upon the part of
some European countries of Bending
their paupers to the United States,
ought not to be longer tolerated.
"Good," "Good," and cheers. 1 be
lieve in the good old American sys
tem which requires that each town or
each county shall take care of its own
poor. "That's it," "that's it," and
cheers J If in the European countries
their laws tend to impoverish the
working people, those countries
ought to take care of them when re
duced to want, instead of shipping
them to us. Great cheering. The
second and still more objectionable is
the practice of shipping their crimi
nals to us, a has been done in many
cases, criminals being released from
punishment on condition that they
shall come to the United States. I
think that is a very grave oft'enee
against this country, which should
not be permitted. Cheers. Third
If a tariff-for protection is designed
to elevate the laboring man of this
country and secure him good wages---and
if it is not for that, it is not for
anything I think the custom which
some meu are trying to introduce, of
importing cheap contract labor from
foreign countries to compete with
home labor, ought to be prohibited.
Renewed cheers. It is a species of
servitudo against the spirit of our
laws and injures all who are in any
way connected with it. These arc
three evils that I think ought to be
remedied, but as to every honest im
migrant, seeking to better his condi
tion, whether he come from the Brit
ish Isles or from the great German
empire, from the sunny climes ol the
Latin nations, or from the brave
Scandinavian races of the north, we
bid him God speed and give him
hearty welcome and hospitality, and
when he is admitted to citizenship we
aspure him protection at home and
abroad. Prolonged cheering. Once
among us and of us, his rights are
fqual before the law with those of the
native-born citizen. No distinction
can be tolerated among those who are
clothed with the honor of American
citizenship. Renewed cheering
At the conclusion of his remarks,
Blaine introduced Gen. Fremont as
the gallant soldier who had led the
republican party in its first great po
litical conflict which, though ending
in nominal defeat, was really the
preparation for its splendid triumph
four years later. The appearance of
the general waB the signal tor enthu
siastic cheers. He returned thanks
in a brief Fpeech, in the course of
which he f-aid : "Mr. Blaine has re
rcned to the fact that he was a mem
ber of the convention that nominated
me in 1S5C. The loyal and cordial
support which I am now giving Mr.
j Blaine is the best testimony I can
j bear to what he has said about his
I earnest support of me when I had the
honor to be at the head of the repub
lican party in the first great national
campaign." Renewed cheers.
Ft. Wayne. Ind., Oct. 20. About
2:30 the train arrived at Ft. Wayne.
There was a large crowd at the depot
and along the route to the Avelin
hou-e, to which Blaine was driven.
The streets in front of tho hotel and
the court houe square opposite, and
the adjacent streets, were filled with
a dense mass of humanity. When
Blaine appeared on the balcony he
was loudly cheered, but from one
portion of the crowd, including a
number of men wearing tall, white
hats, there came cheers for Cleveland,
and when Blaine attempted to speak
he was interrupted by shoutB and
yells and cheers for Cleveland com
ing from the same qnarter. He
therefore declined to speak from the
balcony, and, re-entering the hotel, be
left it again by a side door, and in
company with Chairman New and
Hon. William McKinley, of Ohio,
was driven up Calhoun street to a
point opposite the Library ball. A
great body of the crowd followed
him, aud here, standing upon the
driver's seat, he made his speech as
Citizens of Indiana: The October
elections in Ohio and West Virginia
have put a new phase on the national
contest, or rather they reproduced an
old phase. "Good." The demo
cratic party, as of old, consider now
that they have the south solid again.
They believe that they will surely get
153 electoral votes from the sixteen
southern 6tatea and then they expect,
or they hope, or they dream that they
may secure New York or Indiana,
"Never !" "never I" It is a dream !"
and that with New York and Indiana
added to the solid south they will
seize the government of the nation.
'They can't do it never!" I do
not believe that the farmers, the
business men, the manufacturers, the
merchants, the mechanics, and, last
of all, and most of all, I do not be
lieve that the soldiers of Indiana can
be put to that use. Great cheering
and cries of "never!" "never!" I
do not believe that the men who
added lustre and renown to your
state through four years of bloody
war can bo used to call into the ad
ministration of the government the
men who organized the great rebel
lion. "No!" "no!" "never!" In
the senate of the United States the
democratic party have thirty-seven
members, of which number thirty-two
came from the south. Of their
strength in the house of represen
tatives the majority comes from the
south, aud now the intention is, with
an absolutely solidified electoral vote
from the south, added to the votes of
the two states I have named, to seize
the government of the union. "It
can't be done;" "that seizure will
never be made." That means a great
deal. It means that as the south fur
nishes three-fourths of the democratic
strength, it will be given the lead and
control of the nation in the event of a
democratic victory. It mean9 that
the great financial and industrial
system of the country shall be placed
under the direction of the south ; that
our currency, our lands, our tariff,
our internal revenue laws in short,
that our whole system upon which
the business of the country depends,
shall be placed under the control of
that section. It means that tho con
stitutional amendments to which they
are bitterly opposed shall be enforced
only so far as they may believe in
them ; that the national credit as
guaranteed in the fifteenth amend
ment, that the payment of pensious
to soldiers of the union as guaranteed
in the same amendment, shall be
under their control, and what that
control might mean can be measured
by the bitternubs with which these
amendments were resisted by tho
democrats of the south. There is not
one measure of banking, of tariff, of
finance, of public credit, of pensions,
not one line of administration upon
which the government is conducted
to-day, to which the democrats of the
south ate not recorded as hostile, and
to give them control would mean a
change the like of which has not been
known in modern times. It would
be as if the dead Stuarts were re
called to the throne of England ; as
if the bourbons should he invited to
administer the Government of the
French republic; as though the
Florentine dukes should be called
back and empowered to govern the
great kingdom of Italy. "Good."
Such a triumph would be a fearful
misfortune to the south itself. That
section, under the wise administra
tion ot the government by the repub
lican party, has been steadily and
rapidly gaiuing for the past ten years
in all elements of material prosperity.
It has added enormously to its wealth
since the closo of the war, and has
shared fully in the general advance ot
the country. To call that section now
to the. rulership of the nation would
disturb its own social and political
economy ; would rekindle smolder
iug passions and, under the peculiar
leadership to which it would be sub
jected, would organize an administra
tion of resentment, of reprisal, of
revenge, and no greater misfortune
than that could come to the nation or
to the south. It would come as a re
action against the progress of liberal
principles in that spctiou a progress
so rapid that the republicans are
waging earnest contests in those
states whoce interests are most
demon-trHbly identified with tne
policy of protection against the bale
ful spectacle of a solid south. I am
sure that Indiana will protest, and,
on the whole, will conclude to stand
where she ha3 stood in the past. I
be-liovo that you will stand where yon
stood in the war; that you will stand
for the principles and policies which
have made your state bloom and
blossom as the rose and which have
made the American iepublic, iu man
ufactures and in agriculture, the
leading nation of the world. Great
cheering. The leading nation iu the
world, not merely in a material sense,
but iu a moral aud philanthropic
sense, a couutry in which every man
has as good a chance as every other
mau, and which, among other great
ifift?, be-tws absolutely free suffrage.
Cheers. You enjoy that sullragc
and on 5bc 4th day of November
next you are to Fay lor which party,
for which policy jou will raat your
votep. Loud one- of "r or Blame,
"For Blaine." Not me personally.
"Yes," "ye-."J No; I am not speak
ing for impel!. No man ever met
with a misfortune in being defeated
for the presidency, while men have
met great misfortunes in being
elected to it. I am pleading no per
sonal cause. I am pleading thecau&e
of the American people. "That's
it," and cheers. I am pleadiug the
cause of the American farmer, aud
the American manufacturer, and the
American mechanic, and the Ameri
can laborer, against the world.
"Good," "Good," "Good," and great
cheering. I am reproached by some
excellent people for appearing before
these multitudes of my countrymen
upon the ground that it is inconsis
tent with the dignity of the office for
which I am named. "No," "no."
But I do not feel it to be so. There
is not a courtier in Europe so prorid
but that he is glad to uncover his
head in the presence of his sovereign.

BLAINE'S SfKFX'H AT SOUTH BEND.
South Bend, Ind., Oct. 19. The
following is Blaine's speech at South
Bend : "Men of Indiana : The strug
gle in all human society is first for
bread. There is no use in propound
ing fiue theories to tho man who is
hungry. There is no use in com
mending a political principle to one
who is in need of shelter. There is
uo use in talking philosophy to one
who is naked. Food and clothing
are the primary elements of human
progress, aud to secure this you must
put the people in the way of earning
good wages. Shouts of "That's
right" and cheers. I never saw any
man moved to enthusiasm by Bilently
contemplating the prosperity of an
other laughter, while he himself
was iu need. To move him you want
to make bim feel his own prosperity.
Cheers. The beginning, therefore,
and the end of wise legislation, is to
give every man a fair and equal
chance and to leave the race of life
opon and freo for all. Choering.
What agency will best accomplish
that, what legislation will most tend
to that end? Certainly it will not
tend to that end to throw open our
ports and say, send ye all here your
fabrics made by the cheapest and
most distressed labor of Europe to
compete with our own people who
arc just opeuing their shops and
building their factories, fo'r if you do
that you cannot spin a wheel or turn
a latho in these factories at home un
less you can get your labor at the
European prices. That's bo. We
begin right there, and from these
considerations we deduce the conclu
sion that the protective tariff is pri
marily for the benefit of the laboring
man, becauso if you take in your hand
any manufactured article or cast your
eye upon anything which caunot be
taken in the hand, you find that the
chief constituent element in its cost
is labor. Iu many cases the material
is but one per cent and the labor is
ninety-nine per cent in the cost of the
article, therefore all legislation of a
protective character Is and must be
mainly for the benefit of labor, be
cause labor is tho principal element In
the cost of the fabric. Hence if there
be any man who is preeminently and
aboye all others interested in tho
tariff it is the laboring man. Cheers.
If you compare the two great politi
cal parties in relation to this question,
you will find that the republican
party lives, moves, breathes, and has
its being in protection. Great cheer
ing. A protective tariff was one of
the first fruits of the election of Mr.
Lincoln. Wo have had it for twenty
years on the statute books with va
rious amendments which have been
added from time to time to make it
more protective, and tho result is that
all history, ancient, modern and me
dkeval may be challenged for a na
tional progress like unto that which
we have made since 1861. I am
merely reciting the facta and figures
of tho assessors' bookB and of the
United States census tables, when I
say that in the last twenty-three years
of the history of this counfry we have
added inoro wealth, double over, than
we had acquired from the discovery
of the continent by Columbus down
to the electiou of Abraham Lincoln.
Prolonged checriug. There must
have been some peculiar aud potent
agent at work to produce this great
result. That agent was the protective
tariff operating to nerve the arm of
labor and reward it fairly and liber
ally. Cheers. Whether that policy
shall be continued or whether it shall
be abandoned i3 the controlling issue
in this campaign. AH other ques
tion. are laid aside for the time.
There are many which are worthy of
consideration, but two weeks from
.Tuesday next we shall have an elec
tiou in every state of tho Union to
determine with reference to this
question, what will be the character
of the next congress and the future
policy of the government. You have
before you, the republican party,
pledged to sustain protective tariff,
aud illustrating that pledge by a
specific and consistent example, ex
tending through the last twenty-three
years. You have, on the other hand,
the democratic party, which m litty
ono years, since 1833, have never in a
single instance voted tor protection
and never controlled congress, that it
did not oppose protection. "That's
so." I say therefore to the laboring
men and to the mechanics, some who
may do mo tho honor to listen to me
your unions, your leagues, all those
associations which you have formed
tor your own advancement are well
and proper in their way. It is your
right to have them and administer
them a you choose, but they are not
as strong as a rope of f-aud against
the ill paid labor of Europe it you
take away the protective tariff which
is now your background and support.
Cheers. So do not be deluded by
the idea that vou can dispense with
J protective tariff aud substitute for it
vonr labor unions. Itenewed cheer
ing. I do not distract yam-attention
with anv other question, I do not
hope to dwell upon the great issues
that have been made and settled by
republicans within the last twenty
three year-. That party has made a
deeper and more glorious imprint in
history than any other political or
ganization that ever was charged with
a great responsibility and it is the
patiiotic pride of every nru who has
belonged to it and has shared its la
bors, its responsibilities, its triumphs
and its honor. Great cheers.
Am to Secretary I.incola and
This talk about the iudiflerence of
Secretary Lincoln to the fate of the
Republican ticket is a handsome fic
tion, but it is rather too imaginative to
find much of a hearing. The only
man on the Democratic ticket who
ever made a positive utterance iu his
life is Hendricks, and one of his pos
itive utterances was that Secretary
Lincoln's father was a "smutty old
tyrant." Any man who can fancy
Secretary Lincoln as willing that the
Hendricks ticket should be elected is
a curiosity. He could make big
money by hiring bis imagination out
as a panorama. Phila. Press.

A Scorcalag- Mebalce from Oae
who Kbown Him.
In reply to a letter from Daniel
McSweeuy regarding his experience
in Dundalk jail, the American Celt
Mr. McSweeny has referred to bis
imprisonment as an American "sus
pect" in Dundalk prison, and we may
say that if he was arrested for being
an Irish rebel it is iudeed very strange
that he should accept a position under
"her majesty's" system of govern
ment in Ireland. The oditor of the
American Celt interviewed Mr. Mc
Sweeny in Dundalk jail during his
incarceration. He then claimed to be
a naturalized citizen of America. Yet
he was, according to the talk, an
"uncompromising" Irish Nationalist.
Are we to be told that Mr. McSweeny
was a sincere Nationalist when ho
accepted an office in tho Dunfanaghy
Board of Guardians ? Only a subject
of Queen Victoria would serve under
"her majesty's" government. Aro we
to be told that his release was owing
to tho benevolence of the Gladstone
government? Are we to be told that
Mr. Blaine did not labor unceasingly
in the face of fearful odds to secure
his liberation? Are wo to be told
that Mr. Blaine's official demaud on
Lowell did not havo the desired
effect upon Granville and tho Irish
"overnment? Will Mr. McSweony
be so ungrateful as to deny that this
was tho result of Mr. Blaino's foreigu
Mr. McSweeny says that Mr. Blaine
while Secretary of State, refused to
demaud his release from an English
prison. We arc afraid that Mr. Mc
Sweeny has a poor memory. He told
the writer in the preseuco of two
wardens iu Dundalk jail that he
would be released at a moment's
notice if he would agree to remain
neutral on Irish political affairs while
a resident of Ireland; otherwise he
would be requested to leave Ireland.
He refused to accept this proposal as
an American citizan. Mr. Blaine,
who wa Secretary of Stute under
Garfield's administration, certainly
did everything iu his power to secure
Mr. McSweeuy's release. It Mr. Mc
Sweeny was an American citizen why
did he accept an official position under
the British government? Is it be
cause he has any interest in, or that
he intends to take an interest in the
success of the British Government in
Ireland ? The people of Irclaud know
this. They rccognizo that Mr. Blaine
did everything consistent with his
dignity as an American statesman.
Of course our readers will rocoguizc
that Mr. Blaine did hi whole duty as
Secretary ot State. But Mr. Mc
Sweeny forgets that an "Amcricin
citizen" with a spark of manhood in
him would never servt: in any cipac
ity under the pirate flag yf Kngland ;
that if he is an Irish Nationalist he
must remember that he cannot play
two roles at the same time. Mr.
McSweeny cannot play American cit
izen and English official aud expect
the Irish in America to listen to his
diatribes against Mr. Blaine.
McSweeny having been brought
over under the au-pices of the Dem
ocratic National Committee to stump
the country against Blaine, read what
Alexander Su'.liv.in, the Ex-President
of the L'tnd League, said of the
case in his great speech at the Aca
demy of Music, New York City,
Sept. IS, 18S4.
"We are told that Mr. Blaiuo
neglected some American citizens
abroad, notably Boynton, Walsh and
McSweeuy. Boynton has resided in
Ireland tor years, was a regular or
ganizer of the Land League, and a
member of the Briti-h Association
for the Advancement of Science. It
was never established that his father
completed his Atne.iciu citizenship
or did more than declare hi inten
tions. He was not arreted a vis
itor, but as a permanent resident of
Ireland, preci-ely as were Parnell.
Dillon and other. McSweeny did
business in Irclaud ind held otii! as
a roor-L.aw iiiiaru:an. iie prac
tically re-assumed hi ritizetidhip, and
his counsel, Judge Cooney, of Sin
Francisco, says he ha" not only uo
fault to find with Mr. Rhine's course
iu the McSweenev case, but that, on
the contrary, Mr. Blaine did all that
could be done and did it cheerfully
and promptly. As a re-ult of Mr.
Blaine's action in his case, McSweeny
was offered release on condition that
he would leave the country aud re
turn to the United Stales. This he
refused to do preferring to continue
to reside in Ireland. In heaven's
name, what is there for any honest
man to complain of in this ca-e?
And docs any honest Irish National
ist who inoivs the facts complain?
Not one. Great appplausej
It is reported, on what seems to be
unimpeachable authority, that at the
dinner-party given by Mrs. Carey iu
Buffalo for Grover Cleveland there
were fourteen invited guests, and
eleven sent their regrets. Comment
is unnecessary. If this is not true, the
contrary can be easily established by
the Governor's friends. Jiochester
We have reason to believe that the
Post-Exrress is not misinformed in
making the foregoing statement. If
it is not true the contrary can be ei
ly established, as the Post-Express
says. If it is true, what becomes of
tho assumption that the social posi
tion of Grover Cleveland is secure in
Buffalo? Dinner invitations to meet
the Governor of the State of New
York and the candidate of a great
party for the Presidency of the United
States are not declined, unless with
good reason. Rochester Democrat
