An Enthunlnatlc Republican Muss
Mooting at Rochester.
The Plumed Knight I'nyn Hln Rcspectn
to Governor Hill , or New York
KnormoiiH Number of Vetoes
by President Cleveland ,
Republicans at Rochester ,
ItOtBBSTKii , N. Y. , Oct. 2' ! . The city is
crowded to-day with republicans from all
over the country. Senator Hiscock and Mr.
Dcpcw arrived early this morning , nnd
James G. Hlainc about 1 o'clock. Ho was
accompanied by Hon. J. M. Tliurston , of
Nebraska ; General Adam King , of Mary-
V\nd , and John Van Voorhls , of Rochester.
1)0 ) party was received at the Central depot
/ the committee. About live hundred
fieoplo had assembled at the depot. Hlaino
spoke about 3 o'clock at Franklin square ,
but owing to its raining slightly the crowd
was not as largo as expected.
Mr. Hlaino spoke as follows : Mr. Chair
man I beg to bring to your attention and to
the notice of the audience the statement
made by Mr. Hayard in n speech two weeks
ago. 1 quote his exact words. He said :
"I want you to think of the progress of the
United States since these tarilt laws were
tnudo and what the consequences are to the
various inventions that have como Into play
Binco that tariff reached its present proper
tions. Hero are some liguros that I bc
ltovo to bo reliable. They como from high
authority , Mr. Edward Atkinson , of Massa
chusetts , who Is our leading statistician and
an upright and honorable man. From IsTO
to Ib77 the population of the United States
increased 55 per cent , but in the same time
the dairy products of the United States-
cheese , butter , milk and all that is created
by a dairy increased 7 per cent. In those
Hcvcnteen years the products of cotton in
creased 112 pur cent ; the consumption of
wool increased 100 per cent ; the production
of pig Iron Increased 2S5 percent ; the con
struction of railways increased 23J per
cent. What has been the reason of the
population Increasing in so small n proportion
tion to all these vast forces which are so
needful to us. It proves to you that the
country Is making more than the people of the
country need or can consume. " In reply to
Mr , Bayard , my llrst remark Is that it is n
great deal better for the people to have moro
than they can consume than to have less
than they can consume. Mr. Bayard seems
to think that it is an evil omen if the wealth
otho , country increases more rapidly than
its population. Pray , how early In our his
tory would ho apply nis principle that wealth
must develop only as population develops (
I do not , I confess , quite comprehend Mr.
Bayard's drift , for my own understand
ing has been that , according to the simple
rules of political economy , where n nation
is increasing in population more rapidly than
in property , there must soon bo suffering ;
but whore the acquisition of properly out
runs the ratio of increase of population. It
means that the nation is growing powerful ,
wealthy and great.
As Mr. Bayard has Indorsed Mr. Atkinson
ns a statistician and economist , I beg leave
to use Mr. Atkinson's tigures and to tell Mr.
Bayard where the largo proportion of increase -
crease of wealth has gone under the pro
tective tariff. Mr. Atkinson stated in July
last that since IWsi the wages of foremen ,
overseers and other specially skilled work
men have advanced 103 per cent ; the wages
of average mechanics , carpenters , machinists
qnd the like have had an advance of IH ) per
cent' ; factory operatives and others of
like grades of skill in mechanical
nrts have advanced 78 per cent ,
nnd the wages of common laborers
C ( ( per cent. You will please observe that
these are not ndvnnrcs over the wage rates
of some foreign country , but over the wages
paid in our country a quarter of a century
ago , and that thcso advances How directly
from the protective tariff. Mr. Bayard will
bee , then , from the authority ho endorses ,
that tills largo increase of wealth has not
cone merely to enrich men already wealthy ,
but that it has gene in u larger degree than
was over known before in the history of this
or of any other country , Into the pockets of
workingnicn. If I had been searching for
witnesses by whom the value of the tariff to
the worklngmen of the country could bo es
tablished beyond n.doubt , I would have sum
moned Mr. Bayard nnd Mr. Atkinson to the
Btaud. JVIr. Bayard further gives the pub-
llo warning that if wo do not take
rare wo shall produce in this country ns
much in seven months us wo shall need in
twelve months. Wnll , that Is the last thing
that should alarm the American o.'oplo. That
fact shows above all things our power to
Hhorten the hours of labor.
And now let mo turn to another topic.
While I was In Indiana I had the pleasure , I
had the honor , of frequent notices on the
stump from his excellency , David B. Hill.
The principal subject ho appeared to have
como west to lay before the people of Indiana
wns thnt I hud driven on Mr. Carnegie's
coach when in Scotland ; that I had returned
homo on an English steamer and had im
ported thirty-three trunks , "all full of clothIng -
Ing , " ns his excellency averred. If ho had
taken the pains to inquire of Mr. Carnegie
ho might have learned the cost of his coach
and the color of bis horses , and thus
been better prepared for his Indiana
campaign. If ho had asked mo about
trunks I would freely have given him n list
of all the pocket handkerchiefs , stockings
and cravats that I had Imported , and would
have informed his excellency , by way of giv
ing him an object lesson on tariff , that arti
cles ot that kind are about the same price in
London ns in the United States , ns I nuvo no
doubt that he denies to do mo exact justice.
I would have further informed his excellency
that ho mistook the character of the steamer
I returned in , inasmuch ns she belongs to a
company of American stockholders , nnd I
would hnvo further Informed him that ho
overstated the number of trunks , which was
in all twenty-two instead of thirty-three ;
that these trunks belonged to six persons In
stead of all belonging to mo nnd that the
other packages were made up of steamer
rugs , sUuiuiur chairs , umbrella covers ana
hat boxes and ono case containing photo
graphs. Among these photographs were
several views of an English ass , which
I had brought witn mo for an
. agricultural friend for the purpose
of comparison with the American
species. I "would have cheerfully given the
governor n set if I had known ho was BO
curious about my affairs , so that upon his
next tour among the county fairs he might
liavo exhibited n specimen and illustrated
how admirably the English nnd American
nss drive in pairs. I was thoroughly Im
pressed during the governor's tour in In
diana witli his lofty appreciation of national
issues nnd of the valuable ntd ho must bo
rendering the cause of President Cleveland.
Ho does not grovel in dust nor spend his
time in petty nnd pitiful personalities , but
takes n largo nnd comprehensive view of
public affairs , so as to embrace the side way
oniusoments of remiblicnns who go abroad
nnd also an inventory of theirbaggago when
they return homo. Ho sees in such matters
material for discussion of the great ques
tions connected with our foreign ro-
latlons. our tariff and revenue systems.
In Indiana , however , where the people
speak with great plainness , they did not
jtako the governor's view of the mutter that
1 did ; but they declared with western di
rectness and impressive bluntness thnt his
epecchcs thcro were "just about the gov-
irnor's sire , " if you know what that
When speaking to his'own people In New
York the governor rises to tha dignity of
' different themes and great moral questions ,
inch as the liberty'of the saloon , and the
hlcuslngs oi a free people , of the universal
diffusion of whisky ; or ho may still farther
' enlarge his thcmo to maintaining the splrll
of liberty that has belonged to the Amorl
C4Ui people ever sluce the declaration of Inde
jiendeneo-lho spirit that permits great
freedom in handling other people's ballots
at elections. oUo which must not bo curbed
'by stringent statutes enacted by intcrmed
riling republicans , and ' will not bo so long as
the ( overuor yogscssc' * the veto power , lot
ou cannot fall to see that the veto power Is
ho governor's strong point. Ho Is running
i race with President Cleveland on the veto
lower. His opportunities nro not BO frequent
is the president's on the larger stage of na-
lonal affairs , but the governor manages to Im-
irovo hlsopportunltlcs wonderfully. When I
vas in the west President Cleveland's record
vns 210 votes up to thnt time , but while I
was coining from Chicago to Buffalo ho
added , I believe , seventeen more to his list
md the returns may not yet bo nil In , If
.ho New York legislature were in session
ho governor might hnvo un opportunity for
rivalry , but he Is compelled with chagrin to
; ivo up the race nnd leave the president
victor not only over the governor of New
York , but over all of his predecessors in the
presidential chair for the last century.

A Long Sick Lint.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , Oct. 23.
The statement contained in the annual re
port of the surgeon general of the army to
the effect thnt the average number of men
on sick leave in the nrmy of the United
States is greater than that of any other
nrmy In the clvili/cd world except Great
Britain created some astonishment when
published hero yesterday , but the statistics
show the accuracy of the statement. The
average number of days lost from sickness
by each Individual In the rank and lllo of the
army was fifteen nnd six-tenths. Great
Britain nlono shows n higher ratio. Ono
reason for this high rate of Illness Is doubt
less the condition of the medical corps of the
army. The actual number of officers in this
corps , from the surgeon general down to the
assistant surgeon , is 101. This includes
medical directors and medical Inspectors
and all the high officials of the corps who
do not perform active surgical duty. Of
this number sixteen are ofllcially dis
abled , eight have already been recom
mended for retirement and beside the
sixteen there nre twenty others who nro
what may bo termed chronic invalids. That
Is to say they nro disabled so much of the
time that they are physically Incapacitated
from looking after the health of the men of
any Important post , and are assigned to
cither smaller posts or as assistants to other
healthier surgeons. The result of all this
illness is that the medical corns Is crippled
by the practical loss of thirty-six of its men ,
and the troops are not able to secure the at
tention which is due them when ill. The
thirty-six should be placed on the retired
list , but the retired list is already filled to Its
utmost capacity , and besides this , West
Point graduates so many men each year who
must be provided for that the places on the
retired list are generally given to the men
who are in the way of thcso young subalterns
who cannot bo assigned to the medical corps ,
inasmuch as invalid ofllccrs on side
leave draw full pay , whereas officers
on the retired list receive only
three quarters' pay. It is urged that con
gress would bo performing nn act of economy
if It would authori/.o the examination of the
retired list to a sufficient degree to enable
the invalids to bo weeded out of the active
service , thereby creating places for stronger
men who could perform the duties to which
they are assigned.
Major Powell , illrcctor of the geological
survey , says that ho has sent a number of
parties into the country at the headquarters

and Arkansas in Colorado for the purpose of
making maps of the country from which
water may bo drawn for the great irrigating
reservoirs which it Is proposed to establish

Democrats Fighting Morton.
NEIIHASKA CITV , Nob. , Oct. ' , ' 3. [ Special
to Tun BUE. ] The light in the democratic
ranks Is dally becoming moro bitter and con
sequently interesting. While Nebraska City
and Otoo county nro enthusiastic for J.
Sterling Morton for congress regardless of
party limitations , that gentleman finds his
most bitter opponents in his own party
through Jealousies or fear of an honest man.
Ucccntly Mr. Morton called the attention of
the department at Washington to the un
necessary delay in the completion of the
government postoflleo in this city and the
consequent dissatisfaction to the citUens
Tito assertion was made , and investigation
proved it , that the delay was often inten
tional and deliberate to prolong n pet
government job for the superintend
ent of construction nnd his assistant.
The department ofllelal was heard from on
the subject , and in consequence Mr. Morton
has several members of his party in this city
who are betting against his election , and are
working hard to bring It about.
In conversation with Tills Hin : correspond
ent Mr. Morton stated that from undoubted
information he learns that Internal Kcvenuo
Collector Calhoun is working against him
with might and main , and using what influ
ence he has in his olllciul capacity to this
end. Calhoun's clerks and deputies have
been given the cue , and some who have re
cently lost their situations assert that it
was because of their love for Morton.
Calhoun 1ms always been Morton's most
bitter political and personal enemy , caused
by an ungrateful ambition through lack of
ability , to attain the position in national polit
ical eminence reached by his rival. Mr.
Morton says ho considers It a compliment to
himself to have it known by every decent
democrat throughout the district who it is
that fight * him in his own party. Ho says
ho should feel disgraced to have some of the
alleged democrats in this city nnd district ,
who arc now opposing him , hurrah for Mor
ton. On the whole the light on Martin by
his own party is decidedly interesting to re
The county campaign is also waxing de
cidedly warm a'ld everything is favoring the
republican candidates. The legislative ticket ,
with one possible exception , will bo elected.
Every day adds to the strength of
the tickets. The Hon. Paul Schminke , al
though "out of politics , " could not resist the
temptation to tuko the sturnu again and is
doing effective work for the ticket among the
Germans. He has brought out the record of
sonio of the democratic legislative candidates
in a manner that is politically paralyzing.
He has learned that the pet candidate on the
democratic ticket , u brewer , was forced to
leave the state of Iowa less than two years
ago because of indictments by the grand jury
for violations of the prohibitory laws , and
that one indictment and line cost him 91)0. )

Is a common remark that whatever ho
touches turns into gold. Ho lias vessels ,
real estate , coal mines , iron ranges and other
valuable Investments. He has been absent
for sonio time nnd rumor has been busy
with his name. Saturday the mayor's clerk
submitted to the city board of revision n par-
tlal report of his investigations into the bust-
ness methods of municipal ofllclals. Still
Axworthy was out of town nnd yesterdny
morning the Inquiry wns , "Whore is the city
treasurer i" His business and official associ
ates declared ho wns in Now York nnd was
stopping nt the Windsor hotel. A
telegram of Inquiry was sent
to that hotel and the answer returned
that Axworthy hud arrived September 21) , Inf
the morning , and had departed in the even
ing for Montreal , Quebec. There all tracci
of him were lost. Meanwhile his bondsmoii
began to investigate. They are United Statca
Senator Payne and J , H. Wade , jr. , and are
pledged for $ T > ( K > , OUO. They , together with the
lending city officials and attorneys , were In
consultation all night. Each refused to say
a word about the meeting. The finance coin-
niitteo of the common council , after n hasty
examination of the books , state they believe )
that the loss to the city by reason of Ax
worthy's disappearance is JSUO.OOO. SenatoB
Payne nnd J , H. Wnde , Jr. , the bondsmen ,
early this morning Hied petitions nnd affidavit *
in the common pleas court , praying for an aw
tnchment against Axworthy's vessels , row
cstato and other property. The schooner Re
public and three quarters Interest in the )
schooner Page were attached and his money
and stocks in local banks wcro garnlsliccu.
The sheriff is now attaching tha
real property of the missing treasurer , in
cluding his ( arm outside the city limits and
his summer residence on Lake avenue. Tha
National Bank of Commerce also began sultj
for $ f > , OJO to recover a promissory note they
had discounted. It is said Axworthy had
$200,000 with him.
Lnto tills afternoon it wns announced thnt
of the $ S7ii,8b7.0-l turned over to the treasuroo
and by him deposited in the bank , only $147-
450.05 mummed on deposit. The shortage ,
therefore , amounts to $42ti,437.5'.t. The pot
lice pension fund and the firemen's ' relief
fuml.whlch were unsecured by bondaro gone ,
and over $102,000 of the board of educatioii
fund goes into the shortage. This last item ) ,
is secured by n separate bond of $250,000 ,
with Silas Chamberlain and T. P. Iiandy ns
It is believed thnt Axworthy's vessel
property and real estate will inventory
nearly foW.OOO , and the bondsmen ,
nro secured , The city will probably
lose nothing as the bonds are good. No
trace of the missing man has been secured.
It is assorted that ho 'is in Liverpool , Ent-
land , on his way to Belgium , nnd thnt ho la
well provided with ready'mnnoy. ' Acnble-
grainJinownyto--havo'beon-from him , was
received by ono of his married daughters oh
Saturday last , dated Liverpool , which re.\d \ :
"Papa is in Canada ; tell mama nbt t'o
worry. " '
It is rumored , but the rumor lias not boAi
conlirmoJ , that Axworthy lost heavily in the
recent wheat squtc/c , and that he was in tllo
Gogebic iron crash for n largo sum. Tlw
common council met to-night to trtko nctidni
in the premises. It was decided to declare !
the office of treasurer vacant , and that will
bo done as sooi : as the proper resolutions can
bo passed , when a temporary treasurer will
bo appointed to fill out Axworthy's term. '
