ELAINE SPEAKS. ; Tiie 'Maine Statesman Discusses Campaign Issues. He Argues In Favor of Pi-otectfon Before a. Large Audience at Whitelaw Reid's Home. HIS ABDRESS IS FULL. WHITE PI.AIXS, N. Y., Oct. IS.—A big crowd from the villages of Westchester county went to Ophir farm Friday and heard James G, Elaine. Delegates were present from Port Chester, Rye, White Plains, Mamma- roneck, Eye Jfeek and other towns along the southern line. Upon arriving at Ophir farm the bands which accompanied the party played several selections, and Mr. Reid appeared upon the veranda. He was followed by the distinguished party which had gathered to meet the ex-secretary. After a few words of introduction, Mr. Keid presented Mr. Blaine. As the popular son of Maine stepped forward he was greeted with round after round of cheers. When sufficient silence could be restored to permit him to be heard Mr. Blaine spoke as follows: "Peliow Citizens of New York: I should be churlish indeed If I did not make response to your call after you have come severnl miles to this beautiful home ol Mr. Keld on this pleasant October evening. At tlio same time I am not making speeches In the canvass for reasons which arc well known to my friends and v-hicli have no connection -whatever with politics. "Generally, administrations in presidential elections are challenged on account of tha condition of the business of the country, and I submit that the republican administration of President Harrison can triumphantly endure such a test. [Applause.] I doubt if, since the government of the United States was Instituted, anybody at any time has seen what we call good times so general, talcing fn so many interests and spreading prosperity throughout the wholo domain of trade, I might appeal to New York if the city has ever passed a season more satisfactory in financial results thac.,lar the past two years, In . wiiich the general effect occapital and labor has been more prosperous. [Applause.] Manufactures and Commerce. "Tho opponents of the republican partly al- •waya represent New York as a comnerclal city and not a manufacturing one, and yot tha product of the manufactures of this city alone Is 5700,000,000. Anything that would cripple that great interest would cripple the metropolis se-, rlousiy and to a very hurtful extent. "More men in New York get their Uving from pursuits protected by the tariff than from any other source. I know that New York is the center of our commerce—the great (ratrepot of trade—but all the men engaged in commercial affairs in and about New" York. are smaller in numbers.than the men engaged In manufactures. Nor If yoa go west, where the .democrats this year aro making considerable effort and doing a vast amount of boasting [laughter], srtll you flnd it different. -. "Take Ohio, take Michigan, tate) -Indiana, take Illinois, and the products of •mcinutectiires are greater In pecuniary amounte taan^the products of agriculture In your .agricultural states, so that I think, when.lt happens to democratic orators who are- on the wing trying to. arouse the hostility or these states against the protective tariff, they will encounter a sentiment of which they have not dreacMd. Western Farm Mortgages. "We learn from the democratic party that these western states are in a desperate condition. The amount of their farm mortgages rolls up into the millions. You would suppose it fab : ulous that the amount oJ the money they embrace could ever have been so invested. This Is noVso among the farmers in New-York. It is not so among the farmers in New Jersey. It is not so among the farmers of Connecticut It is not so among ths farmers of Pennsylvania. It Is no so among the farmers of any state near by whose condition can be easily learned, 1 but by a singular fatality it is the western states that hove got all the farm mortgages burdening them and taking the life out of the people. "I do not like to say that gentlemen have voluntarily misrepresented the facts, but before accepting them as such you- will do well, and -wisely, to demand the proofs. The tariff, so democratic papers say, is the origin of a plutocratic government when wealth; shall rule and poor men shall not get their rights. I shall venture to challenge all such statements. A careful examination of the list of wealthy men in the country, published, has demonstrated tne fact to bo quite the reverse: to such an extant, indeed, that in the city of Noir York, taking the first 150 fortunes, not three, not two, not more than one would be considered as derived from manufacturing Investments. As to the Irish Vote, 'I have a word to say about the Irish vote. I see it Is stated that the democrats boast of having the mass of them in their ranks this year. It is one of the mysteries of our politics that a question which Interests England so supremely, which is canvassed almost as much in London as It is in New York, should save the Irish vote on tho side of Great Britain. If the Irish vote were solidly for protection they could defy the machiuatio:"? of the democratic party for free trade, and ihroiv their influence on tie side of the home K .. :*'< of America against the side of the foreipt . . -•: of England. I know this ar.. . . been frequently made to the Irish voters ••>• . -lake it wiri emphasis cow, for I am un^- '. •. • v believe that with the jgntof th'aSHOWi . . : re them tiey will deliberately He on •- - ue of their former oppressors. 1 ttin' •. . - • -.: l rely on my good Wend Sgac, theirillii. - -. .-> successful minister to CMli—whom 11~ -: ^jp:cially glad to meat at Mr. Heid'stablP'His evening. I tblak I must rely- upon MSB to intercede with Ids countrymen—his countrymen in two senses—not to aid ie democratic party in lowering tSs standard and the wages of American labor by their potential votes and potential numbers." [Long jontinued applause. 1 At every point made by Mr. Blaine the auditors cheered and when he inished the asse'mblage broke out in jreat applause. Minister Egan Speaks of Chill. When quiet was restored Minister Egan was, also introduced. After a few words about the interest he took in the campaign Mr. Egan referred to the Chilian affair. He said he simply endeavored to carry out what be conceived to be the principles of tha repub- ican party, the principles of civilization. He continued: •Whatever triumphs have been -woe ia this Chilian difficulty, and they are vei-y far-reach- ng, because the attitude assumed by my government has taught the lesson to all South America that whfle the United S'tates is wfll- Ing to pursue a policy 01 'aid and protection. If it becomes necessary, -against European Intervention, tha ^people 'in South America cannot in_suH the United States flag. Whatever triumphs have been won ia that respect, I say, are due to the administration which I had the honor to represent." Folio wing the minister to Chili an address was made by ChauDcey M. Depew. ~~~~ jr '" • •'" THEY ARE FAVORABLE. Trado Indications Are Good—Setter Stai 1 - keti and Collections Reported from tlio Principal Cities.

This is a low -'estimate; as there are several hundred/.tons- of .hones still scattered over the-prairies.'-' While the drought was prevailing 80,000 head of cattle were shipped from Alice to Indian territory, where they were fattened for the market Fatally Shot at a Bali.

Drowned, The fishing yawl James and Eobert was capsized in a heavy squall in the Firth of Forth, Scotland, into which she was putting for shelter. She had a crew of five men, and all of them were drowned. Another fishing boat that was also making for shelter under short canvas saw the yawl turn over when she was about a mile distant. One man was seen clinging to the bottom of the overturned boat, but it was impossible for the larger craft to reach him JD time to save him. An attempt was made to rescue him, but almost before the in tending rescuer could bear away for him a heavy sea swept over the yawl, and when it had passed the man had disappeared. A TlirlUtnjr Experience. Captain Metzon and a seaman from the crew of the schooner Hamlet, which struck on the Hasbro sand on Tuesday and foundered, have been landed at Yarmouth from the Wold lightship.

They were clinging to drifting wreckage and'were almost dead, having endured seven hours' immersion in the raging sea.
