NEW VOHK , Nov. 3. Lower Broadway
\vas thronged with pcoplo this afternoon to
Witness the start of the republican parade of
business men. The weather was much the
aauio ns that of lust Saturday , when the
democratic business men paraded. The rain
came pouring down steadily from out ot
loadcn skies ; but this did not seem In nny
way to dampen the ardor of the paradcrs ,
Promptly nt 1 o'clook the procession moved ,
% vlth Grand Marshal Mitchell at the head.
Ttic American Hag was omnipresent in the
Tanks of the paradcrs , and on
the buildings and windows along
the route of the procession multitudes
of pcoplo thronged the routo. Crowds of
sight-seers stood on thu roofs , In windows
j nnd doorways , and cheered the different or-
I Kan ( rations as they passed , and the parudors
frequently Joined in. Immediately behind the
marshal came u string of twelve horses in
double , drawing n trucK hearing the model
of a steamship. The vessel was intended to
represent the Dolphin , which was nk first declared -
clarod to bo unacceptable to the ( rovcrnnient ,
but is now considered one of tha best vessels
in the navy for coast defense. Alongside the
model wcro men in seamen's uniform. They
came fiom tlio docks of Ward's line of
Havana steamships , and carried n banner In
scribed : "Tlio democrats killed John Roach ,
but his spirit goes marching on. "
Ono of the most striking and unique fea
tures of the parade was the appearance pre
sented by the Americus club , of Pittsburg.
There wcro 275 men in lino. The men \voro
tweed suits and white hats and each carried
an umbrella , around the outside of which
wore stats , while the ribs were alternately
rod , white nnd blue , thus making the national
Hag. When they wheeled out of Liberty
street to take their place in the par.ula be
hind the Philadelphia clubs , they were pre
ceded by n standard inscribed : "Pennsylva
nia is at your back. "
When the Wall street business men swung
into Broadway from that street , headed by
the Seventh riglmout band , there was a big
shout from the crowd that lined cither side
of the street. First came the coffco exchange -
, . change , followed by the tobacco men.
lilt ; Every man of the latter had a loaf of
tobacco plant fastened to the lappol of his
0 ' coat , or u mammoth plug suspended from
his neck. The brokers' club ono of the
V ' features of the parado. Each man carried a
cane , to which was attached u small Amorl-
CH > can tlatr. Then came the members of the
- consolidated exchange , the other associations
" filing into Broadway from Wnll street , being
n the produce and maritime exchanges , the
' ' custom house brokers , cotton exchange , A.
> y R. Whltnoy , Bowling Green , Harrison and
Morton Workingmcns' Protective associa
tion , and the coal trado. Then came others
in the following order : Lawyers , from
Pine street ; insurance men , from Cedar
street , and the machinery and railroad supply
men , from Liberty street ; jewelers , from
v < Maiden Lane ; wholesale drug , chemical and
paint trade , hide and leather trade , whole-
Bale boot and shoo trade , hardware trade
West sldo merchants , War Veterans' asso
ciation , paper and associated trades , book
sellers and stationers , carpet and railway
and steamship trades , dry goods , Columbia
college students , umbrellas and parasols.
Central division , dry goods , hatters , furriers
. ' and straw goods , wholesale milliners , gas
fixtures employes , East side business mon ,
building material , Up-Town Business Men's
association , Now York university students
and dental students.
Above Chambers street the scene beggars
description. Crowds obstructed the sidewalks -
* walks , and the windows of the tall buildings
i on both sides of Broadway were filled with
spectators. In Chambers street , for many
blocks above , marching clubs waited forever
I . two hours after the head of the procession
t had passed them before their right was un
covered by the organizations starting further
down town , in fact , the extreme loft of the
r' line was not in motion until after o o'clock.
The greatest enthusiasm prevailed all
* along the lino. Hero and there , in a bewil
dering display of stars and stripes and repub
lican insignia , were occasional democratic
decorations of bandannas , papers bearing
. Chinese characters anp pictures of President
Cleveland. The paradcrs flaunted their little
tlo American flags und hissed ut
the bandannas and groaned at the nortralts
* of the democratic candidates. The
i headquarters of the republican national
n committee were profusely decorated , and a
t banner bearing the portraits of the candi
dates waved over the cheering thousands.
* Messrs. Warner Miller , Hon. Levi P. Mor
ton , Colonel Crucor and General John C.
Fremont reviewed the parade from a stand
at the Worth monument , in Madison square.
Hon. James U. Blalno watched the pageant
tram ono of the windows of the Fifth Avenue
hotel , nnd afterwards expressed regret that
ho had been unable to pet to the reviewing
stand. It is estimated that at least fifty
thousand men participated in the parade.
' While approaching the reviewing stand a
' broker named William J. Osbourne , one of
the paradcrs , dropped dead nnd was borne
i away.
Shortly above the reviewing stand the
* parade wus disbanded.
The democratic parade to-night started an
1 hour later than scheduled. The crowds wcro
Immense. The sight of tons of thousands of
x men , all bearing torches or lanterns , baffles
description. Thn paraders were fantastically
, decorated and bedecked with nags and ban
danas in every conceivable way. They moved
along twelve abreast , but wore frequently
> , blocked by the crushing crowd , whom the
police seemed ixwerless to handle.
Enthusiastic Itrooklynitca.
NBW YORK , Nov. 3. The republican cam-
. , palgn in Brooklyn closed to-night ut the
dormant avenue rink with a speech by Hon.
James G. Blalno , under iho auspices of the
organiration of the Irish protectionists. The
, structure has a capacity to accommoaatc
n 0,000 persons , nnd they were thereto-night ,
.and more , too. Hundreds wcro unable to
t gain admission. Judge Roonoy presided and
essayed a speech , which was cut short by
t shouts for Mr. Blalno , who advanced and
epoko substantially as follows :
' ' I did not couio hero to-night to make c
lengthy speech , but briefly to sum up the
* caso. Are you in favor of a protective tariff !
* | Cries of "Yes , yes. I Then vote for Hurrl

Without interostl fCries of "No."l
Well , I have something more to say ot
that | K > int , for I have learned soinethln (
since I last * spoke on it. Not
only have they taken | 60,000.00f
and loaned it to pot houses in the Unltei
States , but they have done it through tin
agency of the bank established by Mr. Jor
dan und by the late Mr. Manning , The , )
t have made them a sort of government bu
rcnu. They gave them f 1,100,000 us n flxei
balance to cull their own , and then they huv <
< ' allowed thorn to peddle out of this $00,000,001
' to other banks , and by that mean
I4 * triad to got u largo number of banks through
If out the country to give them their business
t. and I say here that Louis XIX. of France
or Pelor the Great of Russia , or Napoleon o1
| \ B f his most absolute period , would never have
i dared to treat the trersury.of their respect
1 Ive countries in that way never. [ Choors. ]
' And I wonder it has not made a more pro
V found sensation in this country. They have
said such papdrs as tho. New York Times
and the Evening Post that Secretary Sher
Man dla the s&iuo. Well , I have been deny
ing that n good while , nnd this morning
I road a speech from Secretary Sherman
himself , and ho explained exactly the differ
ence. When Secretary Sherman made that
marvelous loan of 4 per cents In 18T9 , they
were sold through banks nud paid for at the
bank's counter. The money was merely In
transit between the man who paid for the
fours and the man who got his pay for
the surrendered fives and sixes. But
these men have taken the money
in the treasury , nnd against every provision
Of law have dipped their hands ut > to their
elbows and helped their friends. The most
corrupt thing you can conceive is to take the
money of the government and give it out to
banks who can use it , and use their influence
for the party in power.
I saw. to my regret. In an Irish paper an
accusation made that the extradition
treaty had been injuriously amended by
a republican committee , nnd reported to
the senate by a republican committee. I
state positively , and I state of my own
Knowledge , that there is not ono particle of
foundation for the allegation , not the
slightest. And that llko the fishery treaty ,
which surrendered our rights in the fish-
cries , this extradition treaty is supported In
the senate by democratic senators , und by
them alone. [ Applause. |
Referring to the republican parade which
ho witnessed to day , Mr. Blntno said :
It was the most mighty political procession
that over trod the streets of New York ( ap
plause ] , and compared with that which the
president of the United States came here
last week to review why , that was a picket
guard morelv to the republican nruiy ; and ,
gentlemen , that procession is prophetic. It
means that the people of Now York arc
aroused , not on old party lines , not an old-
fashioned fight between democrat and repub
lican , but a light between protectionist and
nntl-protoctlonist a fight between protec
tion and free trade. [ Prolonged cheers. ]
Before the people were dismissed this tcl-
gram was read :
IxniANAi-ous , Ind. , Nov. 3. W. H. Grace ,
Brooklyn , New York : Please express to
ho Irish-American Protectionist assocla-
ion in Brooklyn my sincere thanks for their
cordial greeting and hopeful prophesies.
The independence of spirit and devotion to
irlnclplo which they have shown in this cam-
mlgn have been as conspicuous as they are.
; rcditublo to their intelligence und man-
After the meeting Blalno was driven to n
mass meeting in Grand Army hall , in the
eastern district of Brooklyn , where ho iiiado
a short speech , saying in part :
Wo must stand together in the election.
Phis union carries the Hag of the union in
stead of the dirty bandana , for , without anv
disrespect to the candidate for vice presi-
lent , I think that ono of the most extraor-
Unary campaign badges is a pocket
landkcrchicf that a snuff-taker uses
n his extremities. Yes. I prefer the banner
of the United States , which wasborno up the
great avenue of Now York by 00,000 people ,
and under that flag , and under the flag of
> rotectton , wo shall win a great victory on
icxt Tuesday.
After this speech Mr. Blalne was con
ducted to a skating rink in the outskirts of
lie city. His fatigue was apparent , and he
poke but a few minutes.
At Indianapolis. , Nov. 3. General Harrison
md an unusually large number of callers to-
lay. The better part of the day was put in
> y the general answering his voluminous
mail. Among his replies was ono to the
three Rector boys , who sent him a Jack
rabbit yesterday. Ho was solicited for a
copy of the letter , which is as follows :
My Bear Little Friends : Your letter of
) ctober 31 , telling me that you intend
o send mo a jack rabbit for luck ,
las been received. If there is
any luck in a rabbit's foot , as
so many of the colored pcoplo in the south
are said to believe , then I think your argu
ment that there must bo more luck in a whole
rabbit is not a "non-sequitor. " You can ask
vour father to explain what that means. The
abbit came yesterday and furnished a good
deal of amusement to my llttlo grandson ,
.n the lost number of Judge tticre is an illus-
.ration . of what happened to a little boy who
lad n jack rabbit presented to him , which
will nmuso you , I think. With kind regards
for you all , I am , very truly yours ,
B. HAitnrsox.
The chairman of the democratic central
committee sent a letter to each of the demo-
ratio county chairmen to-day , of which the
folio tving Is a copy :
"Instruct all inspectors to watch that re-
jublicans do not vote double tickets on Tuos-
lay. The Journal tnls morning contains full
nstructions how such a thing can be dono.
The article professes to charge the democrats
with this , but we believe the real object is to
instruct republicans how to commit this
fraud. "
The republican committee , early in the
day. sent the following letter to its couuty
chairmen :
'The democrats injyour county are planning
to have double votes cast. There is no mis
take aboat this. Warn our people quick.
Lot the ballots bo challenged. Print ana put
up posters at polling places offering a reward
of $100 by this committee for the apprehen
sion and conviction of any person who votes
double tickets. Print copy of our ticket and
post at voting places. Force the fighting
now. "
The republican committee also this even
ing mailed a notice to every town and city in
the state , addressed to the public , announc
ing a reward of $100 for the apprehension
and conviction of any ono who , at the com
ing election , votes or attempts to vote moro
than one ballot ; circulates false and spu
rious republican tickets ; alters , forges or
mutilates tally sheets ; delays tha election
returns or changes the ballot boxes ; and the
committee calls upon every good citizen to
see that the laws are strictly enforced and a
free ballot and free count secured.
Early in the evening the streets wcro
blockaded with thousands of people , to wit
ness the two great parades which had been
announced. Fears of a conflict had largely
abated during the week , owing to the extra
ordinary precautions employed by the au
thorities and managers of both parties. The
best of good feollug prevailed everywhere ,
and so far a * can bo learned at this late hour
no casualties ot any kind occurred. The re
publican procession numboro 1-about forty-
seven hundred men , and was reviewed by
General Harrison from the balcony of the
New Denison hotel.
Thurmnn tn Ohio.
NW.SOMVII.LB , O. , Nov. 3. This
city , with 0,000 inhabitants , gave Judge
Thurman an enthusiastic welcome , and to Ut
population was added n great number of people
ple from other places in the vicinity. When
Judge Thurman mounted the stand at S
o'clock probably nine thousand people wore
massed in the vicinity , and ho was greeted
with grout applause. Ho spoke briefly upon
the subject of the tariff , and then turned to
the subject of capital und labor. He said
in part :
"First , I want to say that I am not here to
breed discontent ; I am not hero to set the
employer against the laboring man , or the
laboring man against the employer. I an
bore simply to preach justice on all hands ,
and that every man shall have an honest and
fair reward for bis labor. There is an
annual accumulation of wealth In the world ,
and that accumulation is wholly I repeat it
and emphasize the word is wholly the
result of human labor. There IE
not a writer of political economy
who over wrote a line on this subject thai
wui worth reading , that has not affirmed
this to be the truth , and we know it by re
flection. The difficulty about the production
of wealth is easily solved , but there is anothei
question that is moro difficult by fur , and
that is the question of tho'distribution ol
wealth. This Is the great problem that agi
tales society all over the Christian world.
This annual product of wealth is distrib
uted between three classes of men. First
the capitalist , who lends money to carry ot
business , and if he charges a reasonable rate
nobody complains. Next comes the manu
facturer or employer , who is also entitled tc
a fair reward , and If he Is content with fail
and honest profits nobody in the length anc
oroadth of the land begrudges him thos <
profits. Lastly wo come to the laboring
man , the man whoso brawny arms ,
level head and skill enables him tc
pile up the wealth , and that mac
is entitled to his fair reward , or the scriptures
uros are a lie. Our opponents are accus
toined to sneer ut what they call polltlca
economy. They sneer at science and sci
entitle men , as if science was anything ii
the world but truth. If these mon will sneei
at science , will they sneer at the words 01
the Almighty God himself , who has do
dared that the laborer , is worthy ol
his hlrol The speaker said that ttu
sentence , "In the sweat of his fact
shall he earn his dally bread , " was the great
cst benediction ver conferred upon man
. ' fe adW- *
kfnd , as it made man industrious and Iritclli
gent , nnd saved him from being a poor miserable
erableloafer. .
I say , therefore , that the laboring man l&
entitled to his reasonable hire , nnd If ho
does not receive it ho is n wronged nnd do.
fraudcd man. Our opponents are preaching
to you that the way for you
to get good wages. Is to have
a high protective tariff ; to tax
you on everything you earn , for that is what
it comes to. I do not bclloyo that. I nm no
friend of violent means , but I tell you that
laboring men's ' organizations , when properly
conducted nnd rightly managed , have done
moro to secure good wages than all the tariff
laws that over have been or ever will bo
passed , Your way , then , to got good wages
is not by getting down on > our
knees to congress nnd praying
for high tariff. Your way to get good wages
is to maintain your manhood. Other people
can make-combinations , can form trusts , that
word which has become so odious. Other
pcoplo can do that. I would llko to know
why mon who produce nil the wealth in this
world cannot organize for their own protec
tion. [ Great npnlnuso. ]
Judge Thurmnn then spoke Of the charge
made by political opponents that the demo
cratic patty Is the enemy of the laboring
man , nnd went on at souio length to deny
that imputation , as ho has in other speeches.
As ho wus closing his remarks some ono in
crowd railed out for him to say something
about Minister West , to which the Judge re
plied :
"All I can say about the West letter is
that if I had a boy nnd ho was
such a fool as to bo cntiapped ns West was ,
I would disown him. [ Cheers. ] Whether
Mr. West is u knave orn fool 1 do not know ,
but ho is ono or the other too muclf'to rep
resent the British govcrnment"nt'Wnshlng-

and given him ills walking papers.

CHICAGO , Nov.-3. This has been a day of
parades for Chicago. Both parties took un
inning , nnd , as each was desirous of excel
ling the other , the result was very creditable
to both. The republicans began messing
their forces ut 2 o'clock In the afternoon. A
most creditable showing followed , the esti
mate of those in line being 23,000. It re-
lulrcd nearly two hours for the
[ iroccssion to pass. As usual the
organizations participating walked eight
nbreast. The entire route through which
the parade passed was lined with people.
In the evening the democratic clans path-
red. A brilliant parade followed , which
was enhanced by the presence of numerous
torches and a fair display of fireworks. As
in the day time , the streets wcro crowded
with peoplo. An estimate of the number in
the procession is 15,000 , and the time spent
'n passing , including several stops , was two
lours. _

Police Commissioners.
The board of flro and police commissioners
met last night. The charges , of neglect of
duty , preferred by ox-Officer Gregg against
Sergeants Mostyn and Sigwart were dis
missed , as there was no ground for com
plaint. The charge of being found uslcon on
duty against Ofllccr Dcuiorost was also dis
missed , owing to sickness in the family of
the officer , which prevented him from ob
taining the required rest ,

The democratic hosts had n final rally last

carrying a torch amid a Hood of enthusiasm
and kerosene.
The streets began to flll long before the
lour of the parade , ntul the glowing an-
lounccments of un extraordinary display
jrought thousands from quiet homes to wit
ness the promised spectacle nnd have tliolr
corns trampled under foot by the Jostling
crowd. The unterrllled icsponded well to
ho urgent appeals of their leaders nud gave
a demonstration rcspcctablu ns to numbers
nnd brilliancy. The black empyrean was
filled with fllzz , bang nnit 'rah , and the
narchltig columns were wrapped In n blaze
of many-colored glory * Rc-d lights Hashed
up , tloodcd the streets for a moment and died

Drs MOINHS , la. , Nov. U.--Spccial [ Telegram V
to Tim Bun. ] The noted cases brought by
the jobbers of Davenport , Lhibnuue and Bur
lington before the railroad commissioners
were decided to-day. They charge the roads
with conspiracy to maintain high und extor
tionate rates , and disci iminntion against
Iowa cities. The commissioners find us fol
lows :
1. The churgo of conspiracy is , not sus
2. The chnrgo.s of discrimination bolug Interstate -
tor-state , are beyond the control of the board ,
n. The charge of unjust extortionate rates
is fully proven by evidence und sustained by
the board , which adopts the rates In Urn
Hist , second , third , fpuith nnd fifth
classes , and A , B , C , 1) , und
K classes of the commissioners' soliodulo of
Juno , with the addition of the lumber
rate In the Burlington case , thiostorn
classification having boon adopted In lieu of
the Illinois classification. The following in
n brief summary of the opinion :
The evidence on the question of discrim
ination In Inter-stato lutes against I own
shippers develops a system of latos so un
just us to be a serious blow at the business
pioporty of those thus engaged wltnluj the
stato. The low rates obtained by town
Jobbers from the eastern markets uro
neutralized by the high local rules within the
ntatc , so that the llfth cl.iss rate In und the
fourth class rate out uro largely In excess of
the class from Chicago to Iowa points , nnd
Our dealers are placed at such a disadvantage
us to dcstroj largely their prolits und seri
ously cripple thrir business. In fact , seine
of thorn declare that unless relief comes m , x
reduction of high local rates they \sill bo
compelled to leave the stuto and go where
they can do business nt a profit. In many
instances the discrimination in rates
in fuvor of Chicago merchants are 10
and 25 per cent , and representatives
of lown business houses find themselves ut
such a disadvantage us to bo unable to com
pete unless at n sacrifice ; and the icsult Is
that our business Interests in Iowa are lan
guishing and the Held given up largely to
Chicago dealers. What is true of the Iowa
Jobbing Interest Is largely the ciso in lofor-
unco to the manufacturing interests of the
state. The products of western manufac
turers enjoy the benefits of low rates from
the cast and also those from Ohio , Indiana
nnd Illinois. Our stuto is invaded with
the product of tha skill of
thu workmen of these states laid
down nt our doors at lower rates than Iowa
manufacturers can transport their goods
from the manufactory in Iowa to points with
in our own state under the present Iowa
distance tariff ; hence Iowa industries are few
nnd far between , nnd struggling for exist
ence against great odds , und in seine In
stances shut down or removing Irom the
stnto to preserve an existence.
From u careful comparison of these rates
and the testimony m tills investigation , the
commissioners are of the opinion that the
charge of conspiracy mndo is not sus
tained , there having been no evi
dence offered as to this allegation.
The proof of discrimination was
con lined entirely to a comparison between
state and Interstate business , ov'or which the
commissioners have no jurisdiction , nml
while the commissioners are unable to grunt
relief against inter-state discriminations they
are of opinion that n fair reduction of local
rates within the state is the proper remedy
to protect Iowa interests against tlio injus
tice they are subjected to ftoni discriminating
inter-state rates.
The opinion is signed by Commissioners
Smith and Campbell. The other commis
sioner , Mr. Dcy , says ho has be n threatened
by the jobbers in case ho did not give his
opinion before November 8 , and so ho do-
cllncs to state his views till after the election/
Mm. Brown Indicted.
MASON CITV , la. , Nov. 8. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB Bnn. | The grand Jury , after
twelve days cf careful examination of writ
ten and verbal testimony , finds an indict
ment against Mrs. Sarah E. Brown for
poisoning her father-in-law and youngest
son. The crime was committed March 1 ,
while the family , consisting of flvo , were
seated around the supper tables. They were
all taken violently 111. On the following day
Hi mm L. and Jesse died. Jjlngnoslng thu
case , the physicians concluded that the symp
toms much resembled poisoning. On search
ing house u hex of "Hough on Rats" was
found. The affair remained an unsolved
mystery for two weeks , whan public sontl-
grow so strong us to demand the coroner to
take proceedings in the matter. Tha
body of Hiram L. Brown wus exhumed
and sent to u chemist in Chicago for ex
amination. Ho rcjrarted that he found
arsenic in largo quantities. The jury , after
four days of examination , rendered a singular
vcrd let , In which it suspicionod Hiram E.
Brown as being the cuilty person. Brown ,
in order to clear himself , secured the services
of Detective H. H. Chuflin , who accumulated
enough evidence to cause the arrest of Mrs.
H. E. Brown as being the one guilty , but in
presenting the matter before Justice Cum-
mlngs , he found no grounds on which to
bind her over. Much additional evidence
was secured by the grand jury. A warrant
will bo issued for her arrest. The trial will
not occur until December.

Invention of tlio Shot Towor.
Chicago Mall ; There wan once a mo
chunic at Bristol , England , who had a
queer dream. Watts wau his niuno ,
and he was by trade a shot-maker. The )
making of the little louden pellets was
then a slow , laborious , and , consequently
quently , costly process. Watts had to
take great bars of load and pound them
out in to shoots of a thickness about equal
to the diameter of the shot he desired
to make. Then ho cut the shoots into
little cubes , which ho placed in a re
volving barrel or box and rolled until
the edges were oft from the constant
friction and the little cubes bccamo
Watts had often racked his brain
trying to devise a bettor scheme , but in
vain. Finally , after an evening spent
with some jolly companions at the alehouse -
house ho wont homo and turned into
bod. Ho Boon fell into a doap slumber ,
but the liquor evidently did not agree
with him for ho Imd a bad dream. Ho
thought ho was out again with the
"boys. " They wore all trying to find
their way homo when it began to rain
shot. Beautiful globules of load , pol
ished and shining , fell In n torrent and
compelled him nnd his bibulous com
panions to draw their heavy lliubs to a
place of shelter.
In the morning , when Watts arose , ha
remembered the dream. Ho thought
about it all day , and wondered what
shape molten lead would take In falling
a distance through the air. At last ,
when ho oould rest no longer , ho carried
a ludloful of th hot metal up into the
steeple of tha church pf St. Mary of
RodclifTo and dropped it into the moat
below. Descending , he took from the
bottom of the shallow pool several
handsful of perfect shot , far superior to
any he had over seen. Wnltn' fortune )
was made , for ho had conceived the idea
pf the shot tovV'or , which has over since
