After dlnnt»r President Stokes snld that civil service reform, electoral reform, municipal affairs, and other Important reforms were equally within tbe sphere of the clou 1 * *ctlvliy and usefulness, but the (tinner wo* for tariff reform. Resolutions were submitted by John R. Townsend, prpnidc-nt of the Maritime exchange, Indorsing I'rvsidcnt Cleveland's menage, and urging U-JOM congress to enact tariff reform leglxlatlon. The tonit of'Tariff Reform" was responded to by Hie Hon. VF. C. Breckunridne, of Kwitucky, who reviewed the tariff question at length, and said that after the representatives of tlia people In the Forty-ninth con- grea hud declared that the question of taxation was unworthy of their consideration, the president of the United btatcs, with a oourags~a» raro OH Us mesng" la striking, eliminate* from the political contests of tha Amorteln poople all other qucs'ioni, *nd submits to Ihu arbitrament of tbe nntion that this Li a 'q'iralfbii of Mm vory highest aud mas', urgent cons! lera'ion.

It was so ttmt the few manufacturers might bo paid a premium for earning their living. Why had tho people submitted? For on their shoulders the burcUns rented. It was very simple. They bud puid the taxe* indirectly and had not realijwd tbe effect it had upon them. It had come to them in the shape of Increased prices of necessaries of life. Suppose the money had been collected by direct taxation. The people would never have submitted to it. There would have been a revolution in less ~ than thirty days. Thn tariff odvocat«a would never dare to change the system to direct taxation. Was it not. fltrang i that as soon as the message for free trade came out the irewapapom very toon called tho attention of the farmers to the (act that the war- tariff was tbe great bulwark of their prosperity, and tba malls were loaded down with circulars and document* showing tbe ereat benefit to' bo derived from the tar fff The -principal address wo* delivered by Henry Wntterson, of The Louisville Courier Journal. He said ho was going to speak on "Tbe Platform and the Outlook." Of the former he said It was tbe message, and of the latter it was most .encouraging, in fact assured. For more than a year be had been apprehensive tbat Democratic opinion would not crystalize in advance of the national convention. I "It was obvious to my mind that unle** we could agree in congress we should not agree j in convjution. The tariff plunk in the last national Democratic platform was not in- I tended to be a straddle, because, although I the platform committee had been adroitly packed in the Interest of protection, the revenue-reformers were still strong enough to hold their ground and to carry all their points.

Niw YORK, Jan^ 2S.— The Press discnuse* the location of the Democratic convention at length In an editorial, and altar quoting Mr. Ferd W. Pock, of Chicago, to the effect that the Auditorium building there was guaranteed to be retulj- for the Republicans, and tbat the same guarantee would be given the Democrats at tho national committee meeting Feb. 23, uks whore there is a hall In New York large enough to hold the meeting. The only place,it says, t* the Madison Bquare garden, and the accouittics there are bad, as has frequently been demonstrated. Th« Precw then goes on to say: "The hotel proprietors of N«w York are not fteeklng'to have the Democratic convention located here.. Several of. thorn say that they generally have business enough during the season whan the convention would probably be held, that oftentimes they turn people away. If the coming of the Democratic conclave should depend on tbolr action it is safe to say, from the sentiment expressed, tbat It would not be hold in New York." A telegram from Washington City says tho question is one of the topics of the day th»r» and that the president uniformly re- fnsos to go an record ai to his preference, although pressed to do so. Ban Francisco is making a big effeort and promises that It shall not cost the delegate* any more than If an eastern city was chosen. St. Louis and Cincinnati men ara present with business In their eye, but the Chluagoans are still very confident that the- wjudy 'city will "get there" again. The Matter's Friends Disappointed at the Former—Jurtfo Crisp's Views. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jan. £a—Saturday afternoon, Contestant Thob* asserted that on Monday Speaker Carlisle would''ask bin friends In the house to reopen the case for the purpose of taking additional testimony. The contestant's information was subsequently found to be erroneous, and when the story reached the ears of Carlisle's friends It was quickly denied. - In the circumstances the fight in the house will be continued until the Democrats secure the attendance of absentees sufilc'lent to make a quorum. Republican member* of the house say th*y are w«.ll pleased with the situation, and glad, for political effect, that the case will not be reopened. The controversy appears to have narrowed down to a purely political wrangle. Friend* of the speaker say vbat when the case was pending before the eleutions committee upwards of sixty Republican members called upon the contestee voluntarily, and assured him they Intended to vote in his favor. Had they done so the bouse could not bare been left without a quorum. Chairman Crisp, of the elections commit- to*, thinks that the facts tbat eleven members of the committee—Including two Republica,na,Powell and Cooper—agreed that Thobe has no case, and that the other Republicans concede that Carlisle fully answered Thobn, should. be sufficient to end th* mat- tor. Reopening the caM now would be a dangerous precedent and no member could be secure In his seat - BB ttelmt I* WlUIn*.

The following letter from him Is addressed to Mrs. M.

As I have no desire to abridge the right ot petition, I return the same, to the end tbat this may be done" If desired by sorai more congenial spirit, but I must decline to lend even a quasl-ln- donetnent to the Bchom», even to this extent. I am absolutely and unqualifiedly opposed to prohibition on principle, anil a long rasldanca In Iowa has shown mo that It is an infamous, Intolerant, cruel, blighting curse when attempted to bo put Into practice. It ha* no feature to commend It, and has brought B5"""lhe"~«urfa"6a~" to fatten on the earnings of honest men and to play tyrant and oppressor over helpless women and children even, a sot of legalized spies and Informers. It Is to be hoped that the District of Colu mbla will be saved from all this experience; Then, again, I think It Is bad taste and officious meddllnir for the people of Iowa to attempt to force legislation upon the District in a matter ot mere local concern, not involving any question of inherent risght or wrong. Again, I observe on this petition the names of mere children who have not yet arrived at an age to even have a well-defined Idea of the matter, and I do not a party to presenting their names as petitioners entitled to consideration "and Weight'nponrBnch &u l*aua.

WASHIMOTON CITT, Jan. 23.—A revulsion of feeling regarding tbe Blair bill bas begun. Senator Blair shows some sltrns of discouragement, though he would probably not admit this even to himself. Republican senators who have in previous years voted for this bill are wavering, and express doubt whether tbey\will vote for It again. The Democratic senators are still divided, so tbat gen- wal support of tbe btil by Republicans i* needed to pass it, The debate* have shown that the south bas the mean* ot educating all it* own illiterates; that -all th* southoru state* appropriate money with growing liberality for common-ftohool, education, and a large portion of the south i* opposed to the scheme. Northern senators are beginning to reflect that the bill proposes to distribute the . monty in proportion to the illiteracy of the states in the last census. All th* old slaves and many of tbe white people wbo are Illiterate, and who are far beyond school age, are counted for the basis of distribution. But if the state* got the money they would not divide It according to the number of persons of school agj. The people who badgrown up illiterate In the southern states would count In getting tbe money from the treasury, but not in distributing it, State* Ilka Illinois, Wlsconiin and Minnesota, would' under the Blair bill pay heavily for the education of white children in Louisiana and Mueunippl and Alabama.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 23.— Presidsnt Corbin, of tha Reading" railroad; In auwef to the various communications from people along the line ot the road, who are deeply Interested in tbo operation of the railroad and coal and Iron compantea, ha* made • long itatemeut In regard to the recent trouble* between the companies and tbolr employes, In the V>nn» of which he stated the origin of the strike as follows: "In December certain car-loads of merchandise arrived at Port Richmond, consigned to the Philadelphia Grain Elevator company, of this city. The employes of this [the Reading] company at Port Richmond, In charge of the switch engine*, refused to transfer those car* to the elevator company, and gave as a reason that tbat company did not employ Knight* of Labor. They were immediately notlflfld that with such n question this company bad nothing to do; tbat wa were common carriers, and bound to receive and deliver freight to any person or company that cfferud it to n* and paid for transportation. Notwithstanding this they still refused to make the transfer, and an ordar was Issuad ty the general manager of this company, of which tb» following I* a copy: (.Here folio*-* an order to discharge tba men who refuse to transfer tba freight.] "Five crew* of men In succession were directed to move this freight, and upon their refusal were discharged. Because ot that action the leader* ot the Knight* of Labor, or a portion ot them, ordered all the employe* of the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad company, as they were pleased to denominate it. 'on itrike.' They left tho service of the company with notice to It that they would not return unless the men discharged were reinstated. To this tba management answered that the men discharged for disobedience of order* would never be reinstated, and this company proceeded to fill the place* left vacant by the voluntary withdrawal of tha employes from Its service as fast a* it could secure proper and competent men. Mr. Corbln closes this part of the statement with the assurance that the trouble on the railway I* ended and will never be opened up again. "No man shall bo ostracized on this road because he belongs to a labor organization, and no man shall be ostracised because he doe* not. » • » Ov*r 2,500 men voluntarily left oar servloa. Competent men prevented themselves tor service with' tha company. Thoy wore employed, and will be retained so long a* they perform their duties faithfully. We have never made any objection to labor organizations. So long as men perform tbo duties they owe to this company properly we (hall stand by them, whether they be union or non-union men." A* to the miner*' difficulty, ha recount* the contract made between them through a committee and the superintendent of tb* coal and iron company. An advance of wage* wa* gi anted for four month*, and the contract was made and reduced to writing at the request of the miners tbemselye*. By thb agreement the company paid in addition to the basis wage* the «nm of 1242,00m Notwithstanding the term* of the agreement, the miners refused to continue at work in the mine* after Jan. 1 a* they had promised to do. They did this for two reasons: First, because WB would not reluctate thn men who war* discharged on the railroad; and, second, becanse we would not continue the 8 per cant advance we bad under this agreement paid for four months; and we are Informed they would on no basis -of wage* have been willing to return to work unices wa had first reinstated tho railroad men or arbitrated that question. Tbat question 1* ended, and no matter In connection with that strike will ever be submitted to arbitration. " Mr. Corbln concludes: "For reason* which every business man can understand, It would be impossible for us to maintain even a solvent corporation, much lea nturn anything to the abareholden, if w* were compelled to pay for our product more money tbaa-Our neighbor* pay for theirs. We regret exceedingly that this action on the part ot the employe* of our road,-a* wall a* the action of the miners, promises to bring inch disastrous results, but there 1* no alternative for this company that I can see, except to Insist upon i First, the right to manage it* own property; and, second, the right to employ labor in the mining of it* coal so that It will have at least an equal chauce with it* neighbor* in every 'competitive market. For the twelve year* commencing Jan. 16, 1M8, and ending Jan. I88$_ this company baa; mined 51, OOO.UOO . ton* of coal; paid for It to It* miner*, «5?,. 100,000, and baa received, as the net proceeds for tha coal so mined, only (44,840,000, mat • Ing an actal loss iu ibe .mining of it* coal of tl3,£70,OuO during that period. In other word* we have distributed throughout tha country 51,000,000 tons of coal, the miner* bavn received every dollar of net money we obtained for It, and w* lost in the operation »ia,*TO,000 beside*; <and during all these twelve year* the stockholder* of the railroad company which transported this joal, who bave paid op 140,000,000 of money for their stock, barn not received on* cent by way of dividends, and they have just been called upon, with a portion of the junior securities, to pay in, by way of ajaessmenU, * la, 000, 000 of fresh money to make good the lone* of the companlM." „ Industrial Art hall wa* about half filled Saturday evening at the mas* meeting of cit- Icena called to urge the governor to enter solt against the Reading railroad for it* violation Of the state constitution ID carrying; on at th* aam* time the businea* of a common carrier aud of a miner.
