Nont.r.svu.u : , Ind. , August 21. It was

were at the depot. At the Massachusetts
avenue station , which is convenient to the
Harrison rcsldfiico , General and Mrs. Harrison

United States District Judge Woods , wife
and daughter. An ordinary passenger coach
had been attached to the rear of the train for

Peru , Ind. , arriving there nt 10:25. : Ho re
mains until noon , thence by the Wabash rail
way to Toledo , stopping at Ft. Wayne at 10 : \
p. m. for dinner and arriving at Toledo at 4:25 :
The first demonstration of any kind along
the route occurred at Kokomo , fifty-four
miles from Indianapolis , where a couple of
hundred workingmen and railroad employes
had congregated. They cheered the general
and shook hands with him. Harrison tnadu
no address. Just before the train
arrived at Peru it stopped at
the shops of the Lake Erie &
Western railway. A hundred or moro work
men in their aprons ran out to greet General
Harrison , who stopped down in their midst
nnd shook hands during the brief stop. °
At 10:30 : the train pulled into Peru , where
n crowd of nearly a thousand people greeted
the general nnd his party. It was with great
ditllculty that the general made his way to
tlio waiting room of the depot , where ho re
ceived the people.
General Harrison and party reached To
ledo at 4:30. : They were received by the
local committee on reception nnd n dozen or
tnoro other prominent citizens and escorted
to carnages. Upon a platform , drawn up in
smglo file , stood 200 veterans of the late war.

passed. With General and Mrs. Harrison in
the first carriage , accompanied by cx-Gov-
oruor Fester and William Cummlngs , pre
ceded by the veterans nnd the band , the precession -
cession moved through the principal strcots
to the residence of Mr. Cummlngs , whoso
guests the candidate and wife will bo. The
demonstrations were very enthusiastic.
A reception to General Harrison was hold at
8 o'clock this evening , and was attended by
largo numbers. Governor Foster was the
first speaker. In the meantime the local
inarching club in uniform , and bearing
torches , numbering 400 in all , escorted Gen
eral Harrison to the meeting. Ho was ro-
coivcd with tremendous cheering. Chairman
Brown , of the local executive committee ,
made a brief speech introducing General
Harrison , upon whoso appearance the cheer
ing was renewed. General Harrison then
made a lengthy speech , which was enthusias
At the close of his remarks three cheers and
a tiger were given for the "next president of

plaudits of 3,000 people who wcro on the wharf.
Numerous vessels , gaily decorated with flags
and bunting , accompanied the boat as an
escort until the lake was reached. The
steam yacht in which the party is carried
has been off on a fishing trip in Lake Super
ior , and caino back for the purpose of making
this trip. Pictures of Cleveland nnd Thur
man adorned the cabin walls. Collector of
Customs C. A. Ward and J. G. O'Ncil ' , of
Port Huron , were in charge of the party.
The trip 1ms had an excellent effect on Judge
Thurman , who was naturally wearied after
his trip and three speeches Monday , and ho
enjoyed the rest it afforded him.
Aftar a night's rest at Oakland , Port
Huron will bo reached , Hon. S. S. Cox ,
who was expected to speak at that place ,
will bo unable to bo present , but speeches
will bo made by other congtcssmen who are

bo present from all neighboring counfies and
n big paraao will preccdo and follow the
speeches. Judge Thurman nnd party Have
been invited to remain In and near Port
Huron until Friday morning , when the trip
to Chicago will bo mado.
At the dinner given by the Detroit recep
tion committee at the Grosse Point club
house an informal reception was held which
was thoroughly enjoyed by all. At its con
clusion Judge Thurmnn spoke as follows :
"Now , my friends , tnis is first kidnapping
mo , and In the second place it is treating
your prisoner with cruelty. [ Laughter. ] I
know you do not want mo to exert inysolf ,
for I am reserving myself for to-morrow ,
and I huvo promised my friends here
to spread myself then. Michigan is n sister
state of Ohio , nnd although whi-n I was al
most a boy thcro were some little disturb
ances between our states , I am not disposed
to take ndvantnsroof anything wo got. ( Laugh
ter ] , 1 am Inclined to think that the Alichi-
ganders were pretty sharp people. Allow
mo to simply return my thanks. Wo have
always been good friends j wo will always
continue to be. "
The party then returned to the yacht and
proceeded on their way to Oakland.
ANOTHEIl GIGANTIC CONSPIRACY.
Treasury Agents on the Trail of
CIIICAOO , August 21. Another gigantic
conspiracy was brought to light here to-day.
It is an opium smuggling scheme , the extent
of which at present cannot be approximated ,
though If the statements made by the gov
ernment agents nro to bo believed , many per
sons in all parts of tno country are involved ,
nnd many arrests may bo made to-night or
To-day treasury agents arrested a man
who registered at the Palmer house as E.
W. Brown , of New York. In his room in a
house on Wubash nvenuo , whither ho had
boon traced from the hotel , was found a can
vas covered trunk and 125 pounds of opium.
For some time the custom house officials had
boon looking for quantities of opldm which
was thought to have arrived in this city
from New York instead of the Pacific coast ,
presumably to dodge the heavy duties Im
posed upon the drug.
For a month a special agent has been en
gaged In active search for the s'.ufT , and
about ten days ago a small quantity of the
drug was seized at Fort Wavno , Ind. The
news of the arrest created quite a stir in the
treasury department at Washington , and the
wires were kept busy with orders and In
structions to the treasury agents hero. Agent
Tichnnor has been sent from Washington
hero , and now has fall charge of the caso.
Ho stated to-nlfikt that the prisoner was not
from Now York but from San Francisco ,
and that ho had been Known under the alias
of C. II. Martin and C. II. Gardner.
For many years the prisoner was In the
government service nnd was considered ono
of the shrewdest operator * . Leas than u
year ago ho loft tliu service , and last Feb
ruary ho was -Srrostod in Ogdcnsburg , N.
Y. , on a charge of smuggling opium. Ho
wus soon afterwords released for reasons
which were novcr explained. From Ogdons-
burg Gardner was traced to San Francisco ,
and thence , about two'months ago , back cast.
In Chicago ho had a woman as a companion ,
but the detectives icfuaod to say whether or
not she I * uudor urrost.

LONDON , August 21. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special , to \a"nc \ Br.n.J Many extracts -
tracts have been given In London and provincial
vincial papers fmm Blalno newspapers in the
United States rofei'Hng to the intense doslro
of Englishmen 'to slio Cleveland and free
trade triumphant. ' Great amusement Is
afforded by thrso .extracts to the Amer
ican colony * JOT tourists , not
excepting republicans. I have
occasion to read scores of representative
English . leading journals dally , published in
Important cities , and can vouch that as much
good will and honorable mention is made of
Harrison as Cleveland , whllo Boulangcr Is
much more a topic of interest than any pres
idential candidate. The Dally News , n homo
rule and soml-radlcal paper , gives to-day this
skit at the silliness of the Blalno organs :
"Tho political opponents of Cleveland appear
to bo adepts In the art Known In the United
States as 'campaign lying. " Ono
of the tricks practiced in the last
presidential contest was thJ circulating of
extracts from a pretended pamphlet said to
have boiju issued by the 'Freo Trade Club
of London , ' Wherein Englishmen were ex
horted to understand that 'the salvation of
Sngland depends ujxm the destruction of
American manufactures , and that the only
jossiblo way In which American manufac-
.urers can bo destroyed is by f eo trade. ' To
Englishmen the absurdity of a free trade
jlub which regards free trade as the only
iiosslblo specific for destroying n na-
ion's manufactures , is sufllcicntly ob-
ious. Of course thcro never was any
; uch pamphlet. Ono of the latest in
dentions engineered in the present
contest Is n report to 'tho effect that a highly
respectable Now York paper which supports
Cleveland's fiscal policy is mortgaged for
mlf a million dollars to two members of the
louden club at suspiciously moderate Inter
est , 2 per cent per annum. This palpable
Ictlon marks , at all events , some advance In
campaign lying from an artistic point of
view , for while there is not and novcr was
such a body us the 'Freo Trade club of
London , ' the Cobdcn club has , at least , an
"Wo , ourselves , wo may hero note , are
ufferera in some dogrco in this way , the as-
sailcrs of Mr. Cleveland's ' free trade doc
trines , as they are pleased in their exagger
ated vein to style them , being Just now ac
tively engaged in circulating passages from
alleged articles in the London Daily Nows.of
ivhich wo have not been able to find any
trace in our flics. "
Indeed , as if to cast further ridicule on the
one of the Blalno press , the Morning Post ,
which Is ono of the organs of the British
government , has a long leader demonstrating
low protection ' 'has bcnolHted the states.
It thus begins : " "Sqrno figures relating to
the economic and industrial progress
of the United' States in rccont years
mvo lately boon made public and
well deserve notice in , this country for they
form a rather startling commentary on the
favorite text of the radical free trader about
irotectlon only 'injuring ' the country that
adopts it. In nn thcr'part of the article the
' " 'ost says :
"According to our friends of the Cobden
school American coirimerce and American
manufacturers ought to bo declining rapidly
under tuo withering influence of a tariff.
Instead of Ulis , the statistics , to
which wo refer show that - " hero follow
a lot of statistics calculated to give Mr.
Blalno political friends angina poctorls , with
excited delight. At the 6ml of the statistics
it continues : "And yet there are scores of
politicians here so blind to what is going on
in the world as to stick to the old futish. "

PAIIIS , August 21. | Now York Herald
lublo Special to Tun Bin : . ] Hepub-
leans may not regard a conversation
hat was hold yesterday In the court yard of
ho Hotel Chatham as a hopeful sign for Har-
ison's success , but the Herald reporter ,
vho acted ns cross-oxntiilncr on the occasion ,
lot inking' any side in regard to the subject
llscusscd , concluded that the democrats
ire unquestionably quite confident of victory
n November. The two speakers were
ludgo Van Brunt of the supreme court and
Commissioner Von Glnhn of Now York
city. As these gentlemen are on the same
tolltical side , there wcro no fierce arguments ,
nit their remarks were none the less intor-
csting.QTho Judge began by saying that his
judicial position prevented him from express-
ng any opinion , etc. Then ho relented
\ little , and in clear , forcible language went
on to demonstrate why the democrats nro
.lend sure to win next fall.
"Didyou road the interview with Mr. C.
VI. Depow , published in the Herald some
time ago ! " asked the reporter.
"Yes , I did , and it did my heart good to
see a man in Mr. Depew's position talking
such nonsense. It showed that ho had noth-
ng better to say. You see the republicans
n the approaching contest nave , as wo say
n law , got no case. Cleveland's prompt ac
tion in making a reduction in the tariff the
decisive issue of the campilgn has cut the
round from under their feet. In 1SS1 many
of the republican leaders wcro loudly main-
taming that our protective taxes were 20 per
cent too high. Now they have to cat their
own words or admit the truth
of the democratic position. In their dilemma
they resort to such an argument
as Mr. Depew made use of. They tried to
make out that Mr. Cleveland is a rabid free
trader , and that his re-election will bo a
menace to the industrial nnd labor interests
of the United States. In other words , they
are basing their case on pure nonsense. "
"Admitting , us you say , Judge , " put in the
reporter , "that the republican arguments are
spurious , may they still not bo of such a
character as to alienate a number of the
lower classes from the democratic party ,
particularly in Now York state ! "
'I don't ' think so , " was the emphatic
reply. "Tho laboring men of America nro
not easily deceived. They nil read the news
papers and decide for themselves. The ro-
imblicans try to frighten them by pointing
to the inferior status of European laborers ,
telling them that such will be their own lot
if they elect Mr. Cleveland. But
the stirowd Irishman or German sees
that in England , with its free trade princi
ples , wages are higher than anywhere else on
the continent , and ho draws his own conclu
"Speaking of Germans , " rejoined Commis
sioner Von Glahn , "I know that a largo ma
jority of thorn in Now York are strong Cleveland -
land men , They arc a prudent , saving race ,
and it goes against their grain to see the
government , year after year , rolling up an
enormous surplus that is placing an unneces
sary burden on the poor , nnd encouraging
these in power to make enormous and ridicu
lous appropriations. I have heard that argu
ment advanced again end again by re
spectable Gorman merchants. "
"But can Mr. Cleveland control the Irish
vote , which is all important for Ins suc
cess ! "
"I think I can answer that question , " in
terposed Judge Van Brunt. "It is true that
in lbS4 u very considerable portion of the
Irish vote was cast against Mr. Cleveland ,
but there was a special reason for that. It
was the candidacy ot James G. Blaine , who
was believed by the Irish to bo ready to sup
port the cause of homo rule against England.
Mr. Harrison has no such means of drawing
to himself nn Irish following. "
"Of course ho hasn't , " added the commis
sioner enthusiastically. "And , what's more ,
there ore positive reasons why ho will lese
that following. All the fine speeches in tlio
world will not drive out of the worklngman's
head the Idea that Cleveland's re-election
means cheaper moat and sugar and cloth
ing. I toll you the democrats are going to
carry New York state by such a majority
as never was known in a presidential con
test. If they could carry it four years ago
with an untried leader , why can't they carry
it now , when that loader has won the confi
dence and respect of the whole country ! "
"Tliat's the talk , " remarked the judge.
"Upon that tlicmo lot mo give you another
reason for the success of the democratic
party. Besides that largo portion of the
population who , being out of politics entirely ,
will support Mr. Cleveland simply because
they behove him honest and incupablo of be
traying his trust , there is another extensive
clement which will favor his reelection
tion because they are constitu
tionally opposed to any needless
change. This feeling exists very widely
among our business classes und represents the
natural conservatism of capital. It was precisely
cisoly this idea which kept the republicans so
long In power. Thousands and thousands
who have voted the republican ticket during
the past twenty-live years did so simply be
cause they were afraid to trust the demo
crats. Now that the democrats have shown
themselves in the highest dcgrco trustworthy ,
they will make tremendous gains among
those men who have no other interest in the
election than to secure a wise , sound admin
istration of public affairs. "
Beware of Scrofula
Scrofula Is probably more general than any
other disease. It Is Insidious In character ,
and manifests Itself in running sores , pustular
eruptions , bolls , swellings , enlarged Joints ,
expels all trace of scrofula from the blood ,
leaving It pure , enriched , and healthy.
"I was severely afflicted with sciolula , and
over a yearjiad two running sores on my neck.
