Torr.KA , Kan. , Oct. 8. Ex-Senator In.
galls mndo his first speech in tbo present
campaign hero tonight. A torchlight pio-
cession preceded Ibo .speaking' and was re
viewed by Mr. Ingalls. The nudlonco which
gathered to hoar Mr. Instilh was enormous ,
fully 8,000 people bolng present. The onthu-
statin wai proportlonolo to the size of the
crowd nnd the ox-senator was given a flatter
ing reception.
Before and during the sDoaklnc the popu
lists scattered circulars around containing
this quotation from ese of Mr. Ingalls1
upeeches delivered 111 the senate Just before
Senator Pelfer was elected to succeed him :
"I cannot forbear to nftlrm that a social
( ivstnm which offers to tender virtuous nnd
Independent women tbo alternative between
prostitution nnd suicide ns nn escape from
beggary is organized crime. A financial sys
tem , under which moro than one-half of the
enormous wnalth of the country derived
from the bounty of nature anil tha labor of
all , is owned by u Httlo moro than IJO.OOO people
ple , while 1,000.000 American litlzens , nblo
nnd willing to loll , nro homeless tramps
Marvlng for bread , requires adjustment. "
I'npiilutR lluvn liijuroil KIIIIHI : .
Mr. Ingalb said ho was glad to BOO BO
mnnr of his old friends among the sterner
ox present , becouso ho desired to deny be
fore them the allegation that ho hau cone
abroad ( rcfcrrlug to his Huropoon trip ) to
cscapo taking part in this campaign. Ho was
elad , also , to see so many women present ,
for ho wanted them to understand that they
had only to ask the rcpublicab party for
full sulfrnco nnd they would gut it. "Tuoro
IIRB been manifested1 ho continued , "among
mandarins oI the republican party In Koti-
as an apprehension that my appcaranco this
evening indicates n purpose to break into
thu senatorial campaign. I Imvosald before -
fore that I was not and would not bo n
candidate for tbo 'senate. There is no
string to that statement. My purpose
In entering this campaign is to reclaim Kan
sas. Thu victory of tno people's party two
years ago bus reduced the value of every
acre of laud lu the state , it has destroyed
tbo capacity of every citizen to pay his debts ,
It has destroyed tno fair nnnia of the state.
It is my desire to rcstoro Kansas to
her former glory. I have i.o personal
ambition to gratify. I believe tbo successor
of my lalo lamented colleague , Senator
Plumb , could bd chosen from among ihomon ,
who reside in the territory whcnco ho atnc.
My seat In the senate la not vacant. [ Ap-
plause.j Vt'hon that scat is vacant , If I do-
slro to return to Iho senate , I will see you
again on that subject. | Loud nnd continued
applause. ]
Continuing , Mr. In pal Is said the partv
leaders had warned bun to bo cautious in
dealing with the democrats. They were
afraid ho'would explode n dynurnito bomb
among them and drive them from tbo sup
port of the rouubllcun ticket. That cau
tion , ho said , was superfluous , for ,
bo continued sarcastically , his treat
ment of the democrats had always boon of
tbo gentlest character. Thcro was always
moro or less talk of democrats going to vote
the republican ticket before election. Hut
when election day cumo they were alvvavs
found In line with their p.n-ty. Ho tbon pro
ceeded to denounce In his sarcastic way dem
ocrats and democratic platforms.
Alilunikltlri of tliu AVar Should lie Hurled.
As to the people's party platform , ho said
there was ono clause in it to which bo could
subscribe , and that was that the animosity
, of the war should bo buried , and that , the
states could not bo pinned together inunion
with a bayonet. Ho desiroa to remind the
populist , however , that the union could not
bo cemented bv eggs. The south , ho said ,
would never bo reconstructed until Genera
Weaver could speak with ns much freedom
i Georgia as ho could In Kansas.
Coutlnulnir , ho urged tbo republicans who
had Joined tbo farmers alliance movement
two years ago to return to tbo republican
party and aid in the rc-uloctlon of President
'Harrison , for. if Kansas elected the
populist state , legislative and elec
toral tickets , it would sink itsol
la degradation , from which it could
.mayor rise apain. The democrats rolled uoon
Kansas and other western and northwestern
states to elect Grover Cleveland by their
sendlnp Weaver electors to the electoral col
lego. The democrats neither hope nor e.\
poet to carry Now York. The McKliiley
law had decided the election then
in advance. Tbo cast wautcd n
change from the present prosperous condl
lions. It would bo for Harrison and th
domocratn lolled lor victory upon the west.
t Their duty was clear. A vote for Weave
was a vote for Cleveland.
Continuing , Mr. Ingalls discussed various
state and national issues. The enthusiast !
of the evening exceeded that of any sluiila :
moating during the campaign.

KEAHSBT , Neb , Oct. 8. [ Special Telegram -
gram to TUB UKE.J The Kearney opera
was filled this evening to hoar J. Sterling
Morton discuss democracy. Tbo tariff issue ,
old , thread-worn , nnd ever now each presi
dential year , was first outlined from tbo
democratic free trade standpoint. Free
lumber , an important factor to western
borne builders , was civon as an illustration
an infant Industry , IIOO years old , but they
sold nothing about protection in its old ago.
Then followed a category of frco trade argu
ments , that would benefit tbo masses from u
democratic view. The idea that a fowmanu
factories should ho protected at Iho expense
of the masses was hooted ut. They said it
was unfair for American coeds to bo pro
tected while foreign workmen came in to
compete with American worluuou ,
The money question was handled in a
scholarly manner , to tuo edification of all ,
excepting a.sprinkling of independents in the
audience , Mr. Morton's exposition of the
question corroborates with the republican
doctrine. Tho" percent land loan theory of
the peoplo'fl party was exploded , and the inconsistencies -

hewn by the query : "U'liero can you got

M'r. Morton paid a fitting tribute to Van
Wyck by reviewing his political career ,
first us n democrat for ofllce , theu as a re
publican for tbo same end , and now as a
populist and a candidate. Ho said that if
the defamation ot Nebraska by the
people's ' party continued , laud values must
decline. Then n liltla story was told of
ixarly days in Now Amsterdam , in whlcli tbo

HiiooKt.T.v , W. Y. , Oct. 8.- The largest and
most enthusiastic republican mass meeting
held In Hrooklyn In ninny years was addressed -
dressed by Chauncoy M , Dopcw In the Clin

that the peculiarity of this canvass was the
general apathy on both aides. This was duo ,
bo said , to the widespread belief among the
people that no nutter who was elected the
country would boEafonnd prosperous. Butte
to what was this prosperity due ? To
the republican pollov which bad guarded
the Industrial Interests ot Iho people.
Panlw In the past had been directly auo to
democrats tinkering wllb the tariff. Wo
have been nineteen years without business
disaster. 1 ho prosperity of the country was
duo to the application , continued for twenty-
five years , of ropuOllcan principles. As for
that saying of the unthinking thut the coun
try would prosper , no matter wno was

however , to vote rlgbt upon the questions
which affect his peoplo. Mr , Kom came to
congress us an nlllanco representative ono
who denounced corporations mid all
that his partv opposes , He no sooner got

counted for the corporation.
Homo of His Urform Work.
Mr. Kom began his wovlc in tha interest
ot corporations by introducing a bill
( II. R.I.5S1) ) on January 25 lost ,
which proposed that , the government
should buy out the plant of Iho
Washington Gaslight company , nt n "cash
value to bo ascertained by n board of'fivo dis
interested appraisers , who shall bo exports
In the business of erecting gas works ; " oto.
Mr. Kom's bill for this purnoso npptoprlutcd.
$ IOUO,000 , but It did not limit the amount
which mlgtit bo paid to thnt sum. The ' 6111
would huvo boon a nrcat boon to a corpora
tion hero which has grown fat oft' the gov
ernment , but which now , under existing law ,
is subject to Government regulation. It
would , uo doubt , bo glad to soil out upon
such terms us proposed by the reform mem
ber from Nebraska.
Mr. Kom next Joined witn the democrats
on the houxo Indian affairs committee in re
porting und having passed the Tarsnoy bill
( II. R. ri.liSI ) . "to authorize the Dontson &
Northern Railway company to construct nnd
operate tx railway through Indian Territory ,
and for other purposes. " Instead of restrict
ing this corporation to the protection of tbe
interests of the territory , Mr. Kom ciwo
away to tbo company n town site , switch
room , etc. , every ton miles alone tuo
road , wben , of course , n town will onlv
bo built about every twouty-fivo or fifty
miles , Section 4 of tbo bill gives the com-
pauv the right to charge tbo same rata for
freight as is charged in Texas , 'whara the
people nave groaned from exorbitant freight
tariffs for years. It , says in the same section
that 3 cents a inilo mr.y bo charged for pas-
setmcrs. The gentle reader in Nebraska
will gasp at this provision , which gives away
the property of the Indians :
Kind to tliu Itiillroud.

Without any requirement for the building
of the road the bill gives the company three
years 10 becln work a frco option but does
not rcqulro it to over complete ltsljnos. ,
Such rates , such privileges would never bo
tolerated in Nebraska. But Mr. Kom liad
no lUoa tbe people of Nebraska would ever
know that he was working and votiug for
such a bill.
Then Mr. Kom came .forward again In bo-
hnlf of another corporation. Ho supported
vigorously the uill ( H. K.-JIJC" ) , by Mr. Compton -
ton of Maryland , "To incorporate the Wash
ington & Maryland Rulwny company. " It
gives a right of way to this .corporation , to
build a motor railroad right up into Wash
ington , when other similar railroads have
been denied the privileges for years , the
effort being to kcon such roads out of the
citv proper. The charter granted bytho bll
is loose aud altogether In tbo Intorestof the
company. It can pav 4 per cent ot its earn
ings in lieu of tegular taxes , when no ono
can , of course , ascertain how much tbo
earnings really nvo , and so thu effect
would bo that the company would pay no
taxes at all , claiming as usual it was bank
rupt. That Is a common way of swindling
the government. There are no restrictions
nbout paying up the stock , wnicu may bi
watered ad libitum through tbo issuance o
bonds , ns well as stock.
Ills im : > rts at friiiiiiiclcrlng1.
Again Mr. Kern came to the front , ou Jan
uury 0 , with a bill Introduced by Uimself ( II
H. irtS ) :
' To provide an ndeo/into volume ol ful.
legal tender coin and paper money , for the
classification of tbo funds in tbo United
States treasury , for tbo establishment ol a
general system of government banking , and
for other purposes. "
it Is very probable ttint Mr. Kom , was im
posed upon by this measure ; that ho did not
prepare It , for no oirj would suspect him
with being able to draft a bill. The measure
provides , In a word , for the practical , nbol-
ishtnent of our banking svstom and the es
tablishment of a "government banking nnd
loan bureau" with branch Uanlcs whpfovor
needed \ \ Ulcli shall Issue currency or certifi
cates upon gold , silver and other things de

army of "bank directors" fat , Jqbs' nt ,

Ho would create n useless bystam.of bupk-
ing and thousands upon thousands of , bajlc
officers , some in nil communities , wbo wo'uld
draw unreasonable salaries , anil thus aug
ment the government's expenditures with
out bringing In nny rcvcuu'o , "would
scorn that ho had in mind 'providing for a
lot of men out ot employment. The money
to bo loaned by tbo bill is to draw 4 nor coat
interest , but It is to bo the surplus in the
treasury 1 Mr. Kom probably know * that
there was no surplus in the treasury , no idle
money In the national banks , and thcrofora
there would bo nothing for thls'army of inpu

Surely the building society Idea Is popular

two churches having oruanl/oci builulug so-

of accumulating funds with which to build
churches , and two hand&oinu edifices now
testify to tbo success of the undertaking.
The plan has also been utIIUod in a llro insurance -

method of co-operation may bo applied in a
variety of ways before woboo the end of it.
In nn address to building associations the

"Heretofore local co-opcnulvo Bociutlus have
been at the mercy of foreign associations ,
which , possossing'vast means and prodigal

out from Cincinnati legardlng the action ot
the lines In thn Central Tnilllo association
on the subject of World's fair rales was not
exactly correct. Tlio meeting decided in fa

n general reduction In rates of - . " > percent

trip rate would ho SU. Visit
ors would snvo nothing bv buvlng loutul
trip tickets , but after visiting the fair they
could travel in any direction they plcapud at

of scalpers The action of the mooting wai
in the naltira of a resolution to the Joint com-
mittco of the trunk lines und Central Tralllo

Pun.Mii-'i.piiiA , Pa. , Oct. 8. Tno Hallway
World today prints au Interview with Presi
dent Roberts of the Pennsylvania road , who
recently returned from u tour through Gront
Britain , In which ho tnllts of the lessons the
English railroads taught him. President
Roberts was particularly Impressed with the
system of terminal freight charges In vogue
on the railroadn throughout Great Britain ,
and told now such a plan , if introduced in
this country , woulu go very fur to ulliiy the
oft repeated criticism of supposed discrimi
nation In freight choruos ns between long
and short hauls.
"The principle underlying the matter of
terminal freight charges on the roaus of
Great Britain" aaid bo , "Is fullv recounted
by parliament. Railroads in that country
are permitted by act of parliament to clinreu
for banJling , billing and loading merchandise
diso ou cars , und that charge is goi.cially
uniform , whether the freight Is to bo curried
a long or a short distance ; thus they rccog
mired tnnltliu lenclh ol the haul bus no con
nection with terminal expenses.
"Tho reasons why the long haul should
command n less rate propoitionaloly than
tthortor , are apparent to every ono laimliur
with railroading.
"It seems plain to mo that the system of
charclng u uniform rate per Inn tier mile ,
which is what the American nubile seem to
demand , is not the proper system cither for
the shlnpor or the transportation comput'V ,
unless .such a system bo accompanied with
the proper adjustment of charging for Iho
"The railways nro the highways of the
country , nnd the public richtlv demand
nropor facilities. The < o ought to bo re
quired to cbargo such compensation ns
would enable them to properly fulfill tlioso
demands. It is ctjuiilly Iho duo of the gov
ernment If It says tno railways hhall not
charge too high u rate , to MI y they bhuil not
charge too low n rate "
IloMild the value of every ticket should
bo plainly stumped ou Its fiici1 , und no ono
should bo permitted to traffic on It. In thn
event of Its not being uecd the companies
should ho compRllcd to redeem It nt il.s faro
value , If prcsunlod within u reasonnblu tlmu.
