So far tho most serious consequences of this conflict had not been feltj but tho time was at hand when cither boycotted brick must bo used, or building pract'cally cease in the city, and the aniiy of workmen in these Hides become idle. Rather than face this contingency, the delegates yielded, contrray to tho advice of.

THISB.E was a terrible tragedy .at Orr- .ville, Ohie, Friday night. Coroner Boydston _lmd arrested John- Sweeney and h'ad him in custody on the depot platform. Just as an engine was coming along a pal of Sweeney's stepped up from behind and pushed Boydston in front of it. The coroner Tiie following speech of the Pittsburg steel millionaire, Andrew Carnegie, delivered recently in Dundee, Scotland, created a great sensation atoong all the worshipers of royalty and the flunkies who love a lord '. It is said that in America, although we have no aristocracy, we are cursed with a plutorchy. Let me tell .you about them. A man who carries a million dollars on his back carries a load. He cannot be elected for anything. You know the history of the American republic. Why, tin-re never was a rich man nominated for the presidency. That would kill him at once. The men we nominate for presidents are workingmen. Abraham Lincoln split rails for a living—the fLTeatest man in this century. Garfield—1 notice you cheer Garfield and not Lincoln. There is where you make a mistake. Abraham Lincoln is to live forever. [Applause.] Pin was the man who with his pen struck the shakles off four millions of slaves and made them men—not only made them men, but did not die until the poorest and meanest ne- gro w<ts possessed of everv right and every privilege which he himself possessed. All our presidents are poor men. You could not elect anybody else. You could not even nominate anybody else. If a man with an independent income were nominated for the presidency you would say to the nominator, "My dear friend, what is the matter with you to-day ? What has democracy to do with the rich? Democracy is the government of the poor." DEFINITION OF REPUBLICANISM. t 0, you will sa,y it is not right that the rich should be discriminated against.

Visit everj Enghsh- speaking community and you will netfr find one trace of the poison of hereditary pri vilege in all yotif it aVels. You will no find any connection between ehufch^and State. Yotiwill not find any artificial laws regarding land. The only aim is tne blessing of the people, where as the hereditary classes seek to keep the soil out of the hands of the people and into the hands of the few. Why, this little Wand is the only English-speaking community that would not laugh at such things as these. The nations that compose the Great Britain of today are destined to be infinitely greater in the future. Think you that you can reach them with this funny little monarchy? 0, 0, how absurd! My dear friends, there is only one way you can make a step towards the unification and console dationofthe English-speaking race, and that is by bringing this little island into line with the, progeny which she has established through the world. Monarchy is too small a tail to wag so big a dog.

We were waiting for the train at the station in Alabama, and among the crov> d were an old gray-headed negro and his son, the latter a boy of 15. They were sitting on the cotton bales, when the old man got clown and began walking up the track. "Whatyou gwine ter do?" demanded lh« boy. "Gwine ter see the cahs, Moses." "Wall, you git right off'n dat railroad aroreyou was busted all ter squash! You hain't used to railroads, old man." "I reckon 1 knows." "I reckon you don't. You hain't neber pi-ed n railroad but once in all your life. Come off." "Don't you be afeared of your fadder, Moses," replied the old man as he walked up toward the street crossing, He stood vyith his back to tho village, and five or &ix mules driven by a man on horseback came down the sandy road 'without noise. They could have passed to the right or left of him, but they didn't. They ran right over ,him, and the last one had scarcely passed on when tho son and a dozen others of us were on the spot. "Didn't I dun tole you, ole shouted Moses, as ho helped him up. "Did de railroad cum in?" "Of co'se." "An 1 hit me in de back?" "Sartin." • "An 1 stop all ober me and «meU mewl?" "Dat's it, fadder." "Wall. Moses, if you'll help tote your the poor man, In America the poor man who comes before a court or jury is received with favor because we know that the odds are against him at the start. This is what republicanism means. You cannot make an aristocracy of the dollar unless you enact such laws as you have. You can maintain a hereditary aristocricy if you leave the economic laws. Make the land free, and in less than five years the aristocracy will have drunk and gambled themselves out of their heritage. ROYALTIES AND AIU8TOCKAT8. Do not understand me us condemning the men. When 1 speak against the royal family, I do not condescend to speak I against the creatures who form the royal family. When I speak against the ari- stocrcay, I do Jnot speak against this duke or that lord — persons are so insignificant. I speak of principles and systems. If I had been born to privilege— if I had been born the Prince of Wales, probably I would not have turned out half so good a man. If George Washington had been surrounded with the sycophantic and pernicious atmosphere of a royal court Le would steadily have deteriorated, and in less than six months his head would have be turned. Probably you will never get a better royal family than you have now. I do not condescend to any {personalities. I stand for something much beyond that. I am no respecter of persons. I stand_for what is right, and I think your aristocracy have just Jono what you would have done if you had been the aristocracy and they the poor men. Ah! fellow citizens, it is the iniquitous system for which you are responsible and not the poor. miserable victims who are led into all kinds of temptation by having one rule of conduct for the prince and condoning conduct in him which you would consider dis- America, and wonder what these dear old gentlemen are thinking about, You know how to get rid of monarchy. Brazil has taught you. May Queen Victoria long live, because she is a good and pure woman. May she live so long that the democracy of this country—the people of my native land—will resolve that when she passes away they must be consulted as to her successor. [Cheers, again and again renewed.] i That once accomplished,, and you and your children standing on the immutable principles of justice, equal rights, and privileges of all men, the democracy of the republic hails you, extends its hand and says:. "Henceforth we are brothers in feeling and in action, as w_e are in blood." The first step wilt be taken in the great mission of the English-speaking race, for you will then be so powerful that you will be arbiters of the world. You can enforce disarmament, and if any two nations undertake to draw the sword you will be prepared to say, "Hold, I command you both." Beyond this, stretches the noble dream of the poet, and I believe it is salutary to dwell upon these dreams—dreams that are to become realities. One step farther.

Let me put the lie to that for all time to come. The American pays his president £10,000 per annum, and his sisteis, and his cousins, and his aunts. [Great cheering, which continued for some time.] I said that once in Glasgow, in St. Andrew's Hall, and they made me repeat it four times. 1 will say it once more. The republican pays the head of the state—no dummy—£10,000 per annum, and has nothing to do with his brothers, and his sisters, and his relatives, still less has he to do with a German contingent, who takes care to get the best posts and get over the bends of veterans who have fought for their country. We pay our cabinet what you pay your cabinet, practically. We pay every senator, and we have eighty- eight senators, £1,000 per annum, and we pay every member of congress (325) £1,000 per annum, and, paying them, Jwe make them the servants of the people. The A Japanese Night Ride. From "An Artist's. Lettters from Japan," by John La Paige, in the October Century, we quote the following: "We had now to take along night ride, and at length we rushed out into the moonlight, our fourteen runners appearing and disappearing as we came in and out of the shadows in the iong procession of our train. "We wnirled past the houses of the small town, indiscreetly close to the paper screens, lighted from within, against which were profiled the shadows of faces, sometimes with pipes or cups lifted to their lips or the outlines of coiffures piled upj to the head—all pictures more Japanese than their very originals; then between rounded hills on which stood masses of maple trees; then near to empty spaces of water; theri sank into dark hof- lo;vs, at the bottom of which a river ran as fast the other way. "I watched and looked as long as fatigue allowed, but fell asleep in the uncomfortable kuruma, waked every now and then by sudden jolt to my extended arm and head. "Occasionally I had dreamy glances at what I remember as a vast blue plain, with lofty colorless mountains at one side,' and perhaps I saw glimpses of the sea. The night air was cold in the hollows after the sweltering day, and I found my arm and face damp with the dew. A J apanese poet would have said that it was the spray from of the oars of some heavenly boat which sailed that night across the starry stream of the Milky War. "In the dawn we saw the white walls of the castls of the city of Osaka, and ran acros. its many bridges, all silent in the morning " Gladstone's Daughter. Boston Herald.

It is 6. stories high, and contains four hundred rooms. It is impossible to learn how many guests were in the hotel at the time the tire broke out. The total loss will not fall short of half a million dollars. Among those injured was Cora Tanner, the actress, who is severely burned about the head and feet. She is playing an engagement at the Grand opera house and had a room in the hotel. Every physician m Syracuse is on the ground,.
