Atlanta (Ga.), Auk. 2L By the Associated Press. J A heavy rain Btonn deterred many people from poin? to the Georgia Chautauqua, today to hear lion. William McKinley speak on the subject of protection. Mr. McKinley was introduced by Judge Van Epps. After acknowledging hia thanks to the Piedmont Society for the courtesy and cordiality of the invitation, Mr. McKinley at once entered into a discussion of the win question, tie negnn Dy quoting trowaJ J a speech delivered hv Hon. .1. Randol V Tucker of Virginia, in the House of Kepi .. ' . .. r oeuiauves, iuay i, i&7, as rouows: "Therefore 110 higher duty than that which will bring the required revenue." Mr. McKinley said, that this definition of a reve nue duty was a fa r and frank one, and he accepted it. a revenue turitr, he went on to say, is tueretore, sucn a one as will produce the largest revenue from the lowest duty. The lowest rate of duty will encourage importations, diminish home production and inevitably increase the revenues. It will ofrnecessity check competition at home and send our merchants abroad to buy. It affords no protection, not even incidental, for the very instant you discover that such a duty favors home producers that instant you discover that importations and revenues are checked and that our own producers are able to control the home market or part of it, and then at once the advocate of revenue tariff re duces the duty and brings it down to the true revenue stand ird; for it must not be overlooked that, according to that free-trade maxim, "Where protection begins revenue ends,"and the question of revenue Is always controling, A revenue tariff Is inconsistent with protection. It is Intended for wholly Qiiterent purposes it loses its force and character as genuine revenue when it becomes to any extent protective. It has but one oDject, it can have but one effect that of opening up our markets to the foreign producer, impoverishing the home producer and enriching his foreign rival. The speaker then referred to England as ueing more nearly rree trade than any other vuuuuy, mm ub men maae a statement concerning that country's dutiable articles, rassing on he said that there was another theory of taxation.and it was the one which he believed essential to American develop- micuu hiiu uauouai prosperity, tnougn it was unacu upon exactly an opposite principle It permits all articles of foreign proouc- 'uui "Homer 01 ueiu, ractory or mine, ex cept luxuries only, which we cannot pro- J 1 . , 1 .

The duty is to be Imposed upon lureigu competing products, that is, products which, if brought into this country, would contend with the products of our own soil, our own labor and our own factories, in our own markets. Under this system, If the foreign producer would enter our marKet witn a competing product, -he must contribute somethioe tor thfl'hrlviinirn whioh he is to enjoy, and this something, in the form of dntino. cors into t.lm imsDnnr furnishing revenue to the Government and these duties operate to protect the joint jjiuuuui i moor auu capital against a use loreign product.

Tho General Has Big Reception at Toledo. , jsoblesville (Ind.), Aug. 21. By the Associated Press. J Gen. Harrison and party left this morning for Toledo, where they will arrive at 4:30 this afternoon. Peru (Ind.), Aug. 21. The first demon stration of any kind along the route of Gen Harrison's trip occurred at Kok'mo, 14 miles from Indianapolis, where 200 workmen and railroad employes had congre gated awaiting Harrison's arrival. They rheered the General, and went to the rear platform and shook hands with him. The General made no address. Just before the train arrived at Peru it stopped at the shops of the Lake Erie and Western Railway, and a hundred or more workmen, in their aprons and w Ith soiled , hands, ran out to greet the General, who stepped down in their midst and. shook hands during the brief stop. At 10:30 the train pulled into Peru, where 1 crowd of nearly 1000 greeted the party. It ?as with a great deal of difficulty that the Jeneral made his way to the waiting-room it the depot, where he received the people. The party are compelled to wait here learly an hour and a half, and after shaking lands all around Gen. Harrison sought the "retirement of the railroad offices. Toledo. Aug. 21. Gen. Harrison and party reached Toledo at 4t30. They were received by the local committee on reception and escorted to carriages. Upon the platform were 200 veterans of the late war, who saluted and cheered as the General passed. The party moved through the principal streets to the residence of Mr. Cum-mtngs, whose guest the candidate and his wife will be. A reception to Gen. Harrison was held at 8 0 clock this evening, and was attended by large numbers. ' Gov.

A Glance Through This Large Eitab linhment. - Ladles who promenade Sprint; street daily and flock into the People's Store to one or another of their "special sales" may not be aware that they are patronizing the largest store of its character west of the Rocky Mountains. J. J. O'Brien's palace, on Market street, San Francisco, is the only store of any kind that surpasses it in dimen fllons, but that is devoted entirely to dry goods. The People's Store of Los. Angeles, on the contrary, is a ''department store," having many different classes of goods under one management In this branch of business It has no rival, and even in San Francisco no "department store" is equal to this one. It Is the, largest store of iu ciass in tne state. i The People's Store was opened six years ago on Mam street.- near the corner of Re- quena, in a room only 20x75 feet. Four yt'Hrs ai?o it moved into rooms iu the Bu miller block, on Spring street. There it re mained, swamped latterly with business. till last July, when, on the completion of me new runups diock adjacent, the present littht and commodious Quarters were se cured and joined with former ones, making me largest; aim pieasaniesi store ot its Kinu in me state. The total frontage of the combined stores on spring street is 110 teet.- .The south di vision, or that in the Phillips block, is de voted to dry goods, fancy goods and mil linery, ii is ou leei iront dj 120 teet deep, aud has a floor space of 7200 square feet. Beneath is a finished basement of the same .fxtent, in which is kept the reserve stock JJ" ''P1? the Yaryn the. fl,"or f above. An elevatorcnunects t he two stor in. above. An elevator connects the two stories, The rear of this part of the store is occu pied Dy a large millinery parlor, where. In an elegant room, larze Showcases disD'av the latest Parisian styles. This parlor alone is 34x38 feet and would pass, if by itself, as a pretty big store. During the season an efficient corps of 10 salesladies w.iitj on tue iair customers, and oacK lu the wort shop eight others are constantly employed. In front of the millinery department are canes and drawers full of parasols of all hues and shapes, and trimmed with costlv laces. In the extreme southwest corner is the upholstery and drapiry department where, in a carpeted narlor. are sold cur tains and tixings,coruice-poles, screens and the essentials for furnishing a room as elegantly as the pocKetbook will stand, Along the south side of the store extend tne dress goods, silks, satins and velvets, piled against the walls. " Customers crowd- ing here to purchase have 104 feet of couuter to nepioy in tront or, and six polite sales men 1 1 h ind down the goods, and, if need be, put them back again. Then, when the dress is purchased, by wheeling around tha lady can buy the trimmings; for here, opposite the dress goods, is the "finishing goods" counter, au teet long, where 10 ladies dis- ense dress trimmings, fabrics, gloves, em-roidery and nick-nacks and notions of all Kinds. Down the center of the store runs the center aisle, flanged by two counters of 50 feet each. Here are sold domestic goods, lawns, cottons, table cloths and towels.

In the;front of the store, bask of the show- windows, are the remnant-counters, where remnants of all classes of g ous are for sale, and great bargains some of them may be. Across the aisle, and facing the show-windows, on one side are kid gloves from Paris, and on the other side perfumery, toilet articles and nursery requisites of all kinds. t . p. From this branch of the store, particularly devoted to tiro ladies, an arched opening leads into the other division, which occupies the ground floor of the Buinlller block. This floor Is 50 feet front by 100 feet deeD, and contains 5000 feet of floor space. Under this is also a furnished basement of the same dimensions, used for storage of the vast stock of men's goods, to be sold on the floor above. Ihe front center is filled with men's ready-made clothing in the latest style of goods and cut The south aisle is devoted to neckwear and hosiery, men's shirts and men's underwear. The north aisle is tlm shoe department 100 feet deep, wher 200 feet of shelving contain or the one side the dainty French boots and slippers of the ladies, and on the other Waukennhasts and patent-leathers for the sterner sex.

ANGELES TIMES : WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1888. "MY NATIVE LAND." AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN CIV IbtZlTIONS CONTRASTED. Things at Home and Abroad-American Tourists on Foreign Soil-Annoyances of Travel . Life Among the Lowly Beyond the Seas. . - - l " I have always been a lover of .my country, proud of its grandeur, prOud of its history. What it has accomplished since the achievement of its national independence constitutes one of the noblest pages of human history. All the centuries of Rome's power did not give liberty 'and equality to her citizens. The wheels of progress were not as swift as those or the chariot of the Roman autocrat. There was the splendor of palace, of temple and of amphitheater; there was the perfection of sculpture and of painting; there were vessels of gold and of silver; there was priceless jewelry pearls, and rubies, and diamonds hanging from the necks of Roman maid and matron, everything to satisfy the most luxurious tastes aud the most refined art, but luxury, and pride and sensuality were the prevailing characteristics of the Roman Nation. There was no intelligent recognition of universal manhood and of individual sovereignty. The real life of the people was dead; it has existed nowhere in completeness but in this young, new world of the West. "A government of the people, and for the people and by the people1' constitutes the greatness of our heritage. I was talking with some friends one day last week who have just returned from abroad to their home in Santa Barbara after an absence of two years and a half in Europe. I did .not care to learn through them so much of old world architecture, or the magnificence - of cathedrals and palaces, as I did of the real every day life of the people, therefore in a conversational way arrived with them at Liverpool, was transferred to a "tender" when we left the ship, and in the quiet starlight sailed slowly past miles of docks, the lights upon which sent out their yelldw gleams upon the water. On we went until the 'Trincesse Landing" was reached, from whence we took a conveyance to a hotel. - There were no noisy cabmen waiting, confusing the traveler with their noisy shouts, but every driver sat like a statue upon" his coach waiting to be sought for service. Arriving at the hotel the ' porters were missing. They had gone to bed, and must not be disturbed. So the night-clerk sends his American guests upstairs, carrying their own luggage. The number of their rooms is given, and he says, "You'll find a cham bermaid in the hall upon yourfloof ana she win snow you to your rooms up tne long, aarK stairway we grope. reaching at last the great hall wrapped in deeper darkness. But no chambermaid is there, so we go on from door to door lighting matches, which, fortunately one of our number chances to have in his. pocket, till t.t length the right number is reached, and we open the door, enter the room, light a candle and sit down, to make our acquaint ance with our surroundings in this big, silent hotel, with the strange atmosphere of the Old World ab6dt us. JBut it is ' not in Ensrlish citv that we will linsrer. will pass over to the continent and get airlimpse of what the civilization of the nineteenth century is doing tor the toilers of morarcbjial Europe. We will enter Munich, that city which has reared her splendid gal leries for art, and which, is rich in her : stores of . wonderful paintings. What do we see along the lines of her railroads? Who are the toilers in the hot sun, leveling the track with iron bars in their hands, and shoveling the gravel to fill in the spaces which have been hollowed out along the line? Look closely, and you will sea that it is woman faces and woman shoulders that are bending to the task. Men- why do they not blush for their man hood? men wearing uniforms oversee the work, see that it is well done and that these women do not shirk their duty. Women also do most of the street, cleaning. Wander along the streets and in the shadow of the great buildings we may see an old and gray-haired woman sawing a pile of wood. She has found a man to help her. The loja which she saws he is splitting with an axe, and a young girl is carrying the wool. when split, upon her back into the house. Yet these people of Munich, so lacking in real chivalry, are wonderfully polite in little things. They will not even enter th6 postofflce without taking their hats off, and they do not put them on again until they go out. But they do not hesitate, all the same, to smoke at a public table, never so much as saying by your leave. lio with us to Venice, the beauti ful city of the sea. with its many pillared palaces rising from the" blue waters, and its thousands of windows shining like rainbows in the sunrise light. It is a city of beauty and of grandeur a city of marble splendor, where want should not be nor hunger abide. 'But go with our friends to the lace manufactory, that gigantic structure where Labor is king and unceasing Toil holds the lash above his victims. Here, in this walled space, more than 8000 girls toil with busy and skilled ringers from early dawn to quiet eve. Says Mr. A.: "After they have learned the art of lace-making they are paid six cents a day, while some . of those who give instruction receive the magnificent sum of sixteen cents per diem. I saw lace made by prisoners who were paid four and one-half cents per day. I also saw a piece of lace on which five years of labor were expended.". Would we like our wives ; and our daughters those in our midst, who are dependent upon their own labor for their dailybread to compete with these wretched toilers of the Old World? If we would, vote for free trade, and thus put about their necks the galling yokes of poverty and unrequited toil. . These women toilers are everywhere upon the continent. Said my friends: "We saw women harnessed beside dogs drawing heavy loads through the streets. We saw also a woman with a hay rack upon her shoulders' into which a man was pitching the hay, and when ,it was Ailed sher walked away with her load. Among the Swiss-Italians it is customary to Bee the peasant women with If rge baskets bound upon their backs containing loads of various kinds, among which is manure, which they carried to the cultivated fields." - - l Hotel life has its queer phases to the traveler. Our friend?; like ail other wise tourists, wrote in advance to the different hotels of the various places which they visited to obtain terms, etc. Aoe iouowmg is a veic-aum copy or a letter received wniien cutincr tneir lnnn'r "VE!C,"1 April 18. 18S8. VJr. If. r. k.fc 71. Qmtlcman: In answer to your honor of the 13th inst. we thank you very much -for having wroteus for rooms. We will keep by for you a very comfortable double-bedded room on the front (best panorama of the town, full southern exposure), on the first or second floor, aud we can take you en pension at f .9 each person, including three very good and strong meals a day, with wine, lights and service included. We never include the wine nor the lights, but for you we will make an exception, only we beg not to say that to anybody else. . ' " 1 ou must notice very well the right position of our hotel, and compare it very well with any other hotel who perhaps will offer you less prices for pension. ' "Besides this, we can say that we have a very good kitchen and prompt service, so that you will remain fully satisfied. If you can, let us know the exact day of your arrival, aud believe us, your obedient servants, "F. Ventubini & Sous." That, hotel mau is probably still waiting their arrival, while he still writes to other guests that he will make these exceptional terms in their favor, while he "begs not to say that to anybody else." Among the American luxuries which we should miss abroad would be the rocking-chair, which is purely an American invention. The dyspepsia-inducing pie is also conspicuous by its absence. The Oid World ignores it, so there consequently is nothing there to invite one to dream of departed ancestors, or to lead oue to imagine, in his visions of the night, that he is mount ing for his mother-in-law. In Geneva the children go to school at 7 in the morning, and go home for the day at 11. They have the curious custom of doing the family washing but twice a year. At a boarding-house, where our friends stopped, they had 10 women engaged in this semi-an nual work. But Paris, that wonder of modern cities, and the capital of a voung re public, has oue thing which attracted me 'and which I should delight to see taken as a model in all of our large American cities. I refer to the Bon Marclie. the largest drv goods retail es tablishment in the world. The consideration which is shown for the social, moral and intellectual well-being of its employe's is worthy of emulation. This establishment employes from 3000 to 4000 men and women, and boards them within its limits. In the upper story of the magnificent build mg is the kitchen, with its range 40 feet long and eight feet wide, on which may be seen pots and kettles. larger than barrels, filled with all kinds of vegetables, meats, etc. A machine turned by a crank (not a live one) cuts evenly and thinlv the slices of bread for the tables. Teachers of English and German, of vocal and instrumental music, are provided to instruct their employes evenings There is a fine general parlor. in which is placed a grand piano. The firm have also a large picture gallery, library and reading room, open not only to their employe's, but to their patr ins, if desiring a little rest from their shopping during the day. It is an honorable house, always ready to correct any mistake, aud honest and fair in its dealings. It is an honor to the Republic and worthy of the intelligence of the age. I have given our readers a few facts gleaned from the experience of friends abroad. They are such as to make us fee) that'. thou,gh the Old World fronts utuimries 01 uivmzauuu, weie ia nothing in the history of the race more to be prized than the blessings and the elevating tendencies of Ameri can liberty.
