PH1LADELPH I A, Oct. 16 The ,-reat
battle between the republican organisation
and the city party, the municipal refo'-m
organization recently formed here, today
wna enlivened by . the visit of Governor
Folk of Missouri, who came to lend his
volte In the Interest of good government.
The Missouri governor tonight addressed a
large and enthusiastic audience in th
Academy of Music. He spoke under the
auspices of the City club, which claims no
connection with the city party. Oovernor
Folk had an exceedingly busy day and his
reception wherever ht appeared during the
day and evening was a flattering one.
The crowd that attempted to gain en
trance to the academy tonight was so great
that the drs were closed before the meet
ing began. Several thousand persons who
could not get In were addressed by the city
party speaker. While the curbstone mass
meeting was in progress. Governor Folk
arrived and the assemblage would not per
mit him to enter the building until he had
addressed them. He made a short speech.
When he entered the academy the entire
audience stood up to welcome him. With
lilm on the stage were George Burnham,
Jr., president of the City club: former Post
master General Charles Kmory Smith,
former United States Attorney General
Wayne MacVeagh; William H. Potter,
former United States minister to Italy, and
about 100 other citizens of prominence.
Mayor Weaver occupied a proscenium box
and was given a warm welcome when ho
President Burnham, In explaining the ob
jects of the club, said the organization was
allied with no party, that It neither en
dorsed nor named candidates, but stood
ready to help any genuine movement for
good government. He presented Wayne
MacVeaitgh who made a brief speech, in
troducing Governor Folk.
Governor Folk's Speech.
Governor Folk spoke in part as follows:
The most conspicuous fact of municipal
governments in the United States today
is that they are governments by the few
(and not by the people. There is more ag
rressive rottenness and less airirreHMl v n-
trlotism In our large cities than anywhere
elBe- 1 tl,e I'ltrlotlsm can be made as
aggressive as the rottenness, the problem

own nanos. it corruption exists in rnn-
adelphla the people are to blame; if cor-
ruption ,8 to b eradicated the people alone
can do it. The fight you are making here
a battle which will be felt by every

Pl ,,f a vie ory for good government will
be universal and the evil effects of a de
feat will demoralize those who believe In
good government by the people. The aver
age man does not appreciate the solemn
duty he owes his city, state and his coun
try. The . moral revival now sweeping over
the land means the patriotism that comes
from the heuurt, not from the head.
Many nun would be wllllnBTrf-Tn?erT;
to give" up their lives for their city or
(tale, if they are needed, sometimes, and
this kind of patriotism cannot be too highly
commended, but the man who is willing
to live for his city and state -every day
is the man that la needed just now. There

A political party has no right to ask for
support because it is that party, but be
cause It stands fur the right. If a political
party cannot get votes on the ground of
patriotism, it has no right to ask for votes
on the ground of partisanship. Under our
form of government political parties are
necessary, for it is through them .hat the

Beside the faculty and students and citi
zens ot Bellevue interested In the Institution
about 300 people went down from Omaha on
the afternoon tialns to attend the services.
After visiting rlaSs rooms, laboratories and
dormitories, they gathered at Fontanelle
hall for supper, which, If It was a fair sam
ple of the meals served at the college,
proved to the satisfaction of the visitors
that the students ought to consider them
selves well fed. The big dining room was
scarcely large enough to accommodate all
the guests, and the students took their
plntes In their hands and made merry In
At 7:30 the Inaugural ceremonies began at
the church. Rev. Thomas C. Clark, D. D.,
of Grand Island, presided. Rev. Stephen
Phelps, D. D pronounced the Invocation.
Miss Allen offered a violin solo. Rev.
Joseph J. I-ampc, D. D., read a passage of
Scripture and Rev. E. 11. Jenks made tho

Then came an historical address by David
R. Kerr, D. D., president of Westminister
college, Missouri, and former president of
Bellevue. Realizing that the history of
the last ten or fifteen years has been told
time and time again to the people who wero
assembled, Dr. Kerr devoted perhaps more
than half his time to tho foundation and
earlier history of the college. He said In

Dr. Kerr went on to tell ln detail of the
efforts of Hastings and Beatrice to get the
support of the synod for a college, and of
tho endeavors of Highland University, Kan

wholly from Christian hands, and to make
the institution not merely secular, bur.

In two directions: It hastened a Presby

"H. T. Clarke made a bid for Bellevue
before the committee appointed in 1879. The
synod of 1K80, on October 16 considered the
committee's report. ' The committee re
ported that they had met several times and
received three propositions (which they
stated in full) that they had 'resolved that
tho Institution be located at Bellevue.'

Dr. Kerr told In detail of delays wlflch

college until 1SS3. He told of the gifts of
H. T. Clarke to the college, of the growth
ln students and buildings, of financial re
verses and struggles tn the hard times of

ministration of the five presidents, W. W.
Harsha, Rev. Francis 8. Blayney, Dr.
David B. Kerr and Dr. Q. H. Lampen. He
lingered long aver his story of the organi

NEW BUNCO GAME DISCOVERED
Buffalo Rnslness Man Indaeed to
Enter Roans Opium Smng
BUFFALO. N. Y., Oct. Id -The police
have discovered a mammoth bunco game,
which they say has been worked ex
tensively on the Niagara frontier by a
gang of swindlers. William Macon, a Buf
falo grocer, the police say, is the latest
victim. He lost il.730.
The game involved operations In tho
United States and Canada, and perhnps
a dozen parties to carry it out. A victim
was selected and the profit of smuggling
opium explained lo him. He was then
taken to a Chinese merchant, who agreed
to buy all the opium the smugglers could
deliver. The swindlers accompanied their
victim to a Canadian city, where confed
erates sold to them a quantity of powder
raid to be opium. On their return to the
United States in a rowboat other confed
erates on shore fired blank cartridges at
the men In the boat and called on them
to surrender In the name of the law. The
conspirators In the boat hastily explained
to their victim that these were govern
ment officers and threw tho supposed opium
overboard on the pretext of evading prose
cution for smuggling. The police say that
two men from Pittsburg recently were
fleeced In a like manner. So far they
have been unable to locute the swindlers.
