The Michigan club of one year oíd has nearly 1,200 members, representintr the fihting element of the party. Itwas born on Washington' birthday. lftV). nearly four months after the preaidential election, thus evincing the trae Fpirit of never-saj-die. There were a dozen active workers, and it might be nnjnst to say just wlio was the IfMng pirit. esnecially as noboity claims that honor,each modestly giviog the honors to his feUows. Siu'ii men as Col. Atkinson, Mayor Grumsmond,C. H. Hulil..l. L. Edson, to tlie number of twentyfive. sitjiied tlieir namestothe charter. It grew from the start under good miniBement. and toward the close of 1886 it was BO tliriving that it determinad to celébrate it? tirst birthday, and it has now entered on its second year with the brishtest ,of hojies. the most owerful poUtiwd aiganizatíon ia Michigan, and is bound to mnke h big mark in future elections. lts mraibi r.-liip is Largel; from the state, and á gjanoe at the list whosatinthe Princesa theater last night will show the element which has made it what it is. From an early liour yesterday mornins; the Michigan club rooms on Fort street were the scène of unusual life and aotivity. Bustling preparations for the banqnetl'.v tbc various committees were in progress all daj , and the rooms were also kept constant ly filled by visitors ar riving from tlie interior of the state. The club was the scène of many fraternal reunióos and congratulatious, and a hearty republican handshaking was indnlged in all round. The club boisted the national colors at an early hour in the day, and visitors from the interior found uo difficulty in tinding the place. At noon all the tickets for the tables at the banquet had been disposed of, besides a hundred eitra chairs on the ground floor. The utmost enthoeiasm and eipectation was prevalent during the day, the delegates from the interior expressinj; themfelvcs with wholfiFonled lieartiness, as hugely in favor of the banquet and the committee's work.' COV. FORAKÉR ARRIVÉS. Oulo's MasiHtrate ltoelved by the Mlchlsnn (overnor. The receptiou of Gov. Foraker of Ohio was the first prominent feature of the day. Judge Foraker's famous debate with Gov. Hoadly, and the overwhelming defeat of the latter at the polls, has given him a name and a place among the most prominent men of the country. Gov. Foraker also was not without his following at the Chicago national convention a year aso last summer. The prominence thus gained, and his large majorities la-4 fall, have placed him in the front rank of national importance. Gov. Foraker telegraphed Gov. Alger that he would arrive via the Michigan Central railroad Monday morniug at 11:40 o'clock. It had iirevioiisly been deUrmined to give the governor such a military and civil reeeption as would do the distinguished visitor honor and its projectors credit. The public having been informed through the press that his excellency of Ohio would arrive at 11:40, a large number of spectators asgembled at the depot to witness the reception and demonstration. The waiting rooms were crowded with people, and around the ticket gates they were huddled together in n perfect jam. Among the crowd were Beveral aldermen and other city officials, the city hall being aloaed B8 ,i-liiiigton's birthday was a national holiday. The employés of many of the stores which closed their doors in honor of the day and occasion were also present in forcé. Numerous visiting republicana from the otate at large deserted the corridors of the Russell house for the time being and rujiaired to the depot. All watched the clock and looked for the appearance of the military. Abont 11:35 o'clock the sagle eye of the ubiquitous newsboy caught sight of the coinpnTiy of gray-coated militia inardiing down Jeffersou Hvenue. A scampering of numerous smal! boys to the point of view attracted general attention, and the sidewalks were inntantly crowded witli numerous and more difrnified spectators. Jhe aquad of soldier was the quick-moving, handxome Detroit cadet. The bright barrels of their guns and slender polished bayoneta Sashed in the sunlight aud gleametl above the snow. Thecompany nppeared in heimet hats and lons, bluish-gray surtouts. lts complement of firearms is among the handaomest in the state. The cadets marched down Woodbridge street by fours, and ut the corner of the depot broke into twos in recponse to a rínging command, wheeled sharply arouud to the sidewalk on Third street, marched np iu front of the main en trance to the depot, and carne to a halt. After deploying in different direcons and ueeütblg several maneuver of the manual of arma to the admiration of all qweteton and the hilarious delight of the "kid" element, the squad broke ranks and ned from the cold into the depot. There their armn were atacked in field style for 8 few minutes. Gov. Aiger, who had arrived in the meantime with hi carriage, was saluted. The governor returned the salute and nodded apiirovingly to the captain and other members of his acquaintance. Hoveral other cnrringes also drow np to the cnrb-stone atircast, carriage amilgements having been made for any imm ber of Ohio visitors. A Xow minutes bcf oro the train, was duo the cndets were formed in line on the platform inside the trates at parade rest. As the train was near rolling into the depot Gov. Alger, the Hou. Isaac Marston, Maj. George H. Hopkins, Mr. Fred E. Farnsworth and Frank E. Snow ndvnnced down the plRtform with the receptiou coinmittee. A large nuinber of passengers preceded the gnbernatorinl party down the platform into the depot. Attracted and interested by the demonatfation they halted andwaited the development of events. Gov. Alger and his friends were nmong the last to leave the coacheR. Gov. Foraker was acDompanied by hís wiía. When the party was seen advancinj; down the platform Gov. Foraker and Gov. Alger were escortlng Mrs. Foraker betweon tlicm. The tall. commamüng prcsence and handsome face of the Ohio governor was not more noticeable than the tall and rosj and vivacioiis ooiintenance and elegailt appeanmoe of hiswife. Botfa nemed jileas(!d with the reception. As the party neared the gate the command ¦¦Attention!" rang out loud and clear, followed by "l'rescnt arms!" which was repeated down the line. The corrpany stood motionless, hokU ing thcir gtau In front of them hs Gov. Alger. his ynests. and the reception committee paaaed in front. Gov. Foraker raised his hat with dinity. Mrs. Foraker smiled and also bowed. The sqund wheeled aro'and and followed to the carriage?. aml tlien touk B position in the street. Gov. Forabet and ladyentered Gov. Alger's oarriage, the governor himself holding the dooi and asaisting them to enter. Introductions then followed. Jadgé Maratón, Maj. Hopkius, James L. Èdson and othera were presented. Oor. Aigei then entered the oarriage and dirpeted the coachman to follow the soluiers, who were leadinu the way op Third strcet. A large orowd of persous nlsofollowedon the .sidewnlks. The cadeta proceeded in the lead op Third streel t Fon street, where they wheeled Rracefully tothe east, direct for the gOTernor'c mansión, two blocks distant. Arrived therr, the cnrriage stopped :i little distance frote the steps and thecompany formed into a line stretching frora one curb stono to snother. An opeaing wn nci m the ranks for the oarriage to drive throujih. It Uien drove up to tlni trance. The goveinor and gneëtt then alighted. The oompanj agaio presented arma. They turued toward the soldiere, bowed several times and eutered the mHnsion. The cadets. the crowds of people and the carriages then dispersed, and in two minutes no evidences of the tiaoog ÜllA had looked uoon the distiuguished HUMtl were to be seen. Among the other arrivals at the same time was the Hon. E. S. Lacey of Charlotte, ex-cougressman. A very !arge proportion of the arrivals turned into the Michigan club rooms, a few blocks eaai of the góvernor's mansion. Several local memberR stood at the door receiving the arriving visitors from the state. Gov. Foraker was seen by a TninuNE reporter soon after his arrival at the govírnor's mansión. He is i yoongex man than appears at first or distant sight. His face is fair and clean-shavcn, with the exception of a medium-sized mutache, which droops over a clear-cut and decisive looking month. His must'iche is brown. His hair is heavily threaded with gray and combed back from a high and noble forchead. The manner of dressing his hair doulitlcss ïiiakfs the governor appear several years older than he f. His eye is grey, and the whole expression of his ccuntcnaficc shows great intellectual force and extensive experience. The governor expressed himself as fatiu'ucdwith lus journey and siifferiiiL' from a headache. Whtn askcd abont prison reform as inaugurated in ( )hio Gov. Foraker said: " l'lii' sjstem is yet experimental and not fully nnderway. We have begnn tlie erection of an intermediary prison, but its foundation is not yet oompleted. fhe ideas of reform in the treatment of iirisoners will then bo put into pratieal a]iplicatiou. o particular system nf treatment has yet been detenniuid iipon for general prectioe. We reoognue the ïiccd and the importanoe of the work of réforniing crimináis, and think the penitentiary is as good a place as any, if not a better plaoe, totryit. Those who have promnlgated the reformatory ideas feel greatly cncouragi d. qrftem f parole is consid ercd EU befalg licneficial both to the criminal and the commuuity.

"wnat are the prospecta for conviction in the ('inciniiiiti election-frand cases?" "Eieellenf, I think. Dalton, clerk of Hnmilton oourity, 'you romember, was ordqrad by tho legislature to appear before tlie investifjating committee nnd produce the Toltng records of precinct A in the Fourth ward, where the frauds were coinmitted. Ée appeáred, bnt did not produce the records. He was then committed for contempt, but released on babeas corpus. Dalton's attorneys claimed thiit hc had no right to take the records out of his own county." "I just received a telegram a few minutes ago from my private secretary," said the Rovernor, producins the dispatch, "saving that Judge Wylie, of the common pleas, before whom the arguments were made, had just decided with tho investigatiug committee. Dalton will now have to produce the rocords or go to jail.' "The republicana have got Ohio perily reelaimnl." '['tii-ro is no better evidence of that than the niüjorities of last fall. Ühio is a republican Btate." GOV. ALGER'S RECEPTION. Citlzcns Generan y A reept Hls I'ublle Iuvitatfon. The popularity of Jlichigan's chief executive reoëived a freofa tribute at the erqwdad reoeption Monday inthegabeTnatorial mansion. Standing witliin the lHt.'.]s of that hospitable residence duriug the reception an observer could not fail to be impressed with the personal ijnalities whieh have made Gov. Alu'i t ;i favorito wilh the rank and file of Michigan republioanjem, and the genial, kindly nature which makes hosta of friends of an opposite political faith. The governor1 reoeptdons liave alwayi boen largely attended by democrats as well as republicans, and Monday was no exception to the rule. Men of all partios, public officials and private citiens, crowded to tlie spacious rodmi to do honor to the governor and his disHnguished gneaU. J'recisely at four o'clock the oallers begiin to arrive. At ach iwtag of the masaive doqr groa&i of f rom two to half a' dozen gentlemen passedio and were at once ushered into thp reception room on the eust side of the hall, where the govamorand party stood to receivothem. From this hour until after six a steady Btream of viaitors paued in andoat, the eetimated number benig about 2,500. At tho door of tli reception room Mr. Heury A. Newland and Maj. Sil M. Osimin, tlie goveroor's privute seöretary, arted aa ashen. Handfome Harry Conant, the state secretary, who ipparently knows the face of every repnblican in Michigan, made the intro,luctons. Close to the doorfitood Gov. Alprer, who gxeeted each caller with a hearty shake of the hand. The goveruor was dressed in a plain Princc Albert suit. At liis ritfht stood Senator Logan, ittired in an eveniii suit of black, who made each visitor I feel at home t once by hisfriendly I graap and p'easnnt words of welcome. Shortly after 4 o'clock Senator Evarts ariivid and at once töok up hi popition in the lino of celebrities who were receivin.ï tlic t:ue?ts. 'l'lie senator stood at (in. tógan'a ri'ht andadI i few words of familiar conversation to eaoh person introduced to him. ii t ;is dr(s?ed in a plain oldEashionfid Biait of black, high collar with turned front and necktie of the seventeenthoentury. (iov. Foraker stood next to Senator Eviuts and reeted the callers with a cordial "buckeye" grip of the band. (inv. Foraker is oue of the most iiffalile and courteousof gentlemen and makes f rier.ds at sigbt. Later in ihc niteinoon Senators derson aud Palmer arrived and joined the line of governors nüdsenntors in tho duty of ihulrlng hands. ïhere was a Hdellghtfnl nbscnce of tormality in the rejfoeption. Hosts and guests met in n orcüuary rcpubliciin way, and thègOTemon nnd senators frequeutly dropped out of the line to convene a few moment with a friend. Senator &miU would not stay "puf anywbere, and "bobbed up serenely" in Bil qoarteni of the r(Xm at once. lt wae amtuing t wateh tho diferent methodfc of salutatiou.

He gives the hand a short, crisp shake. üov. Foraker, yoongei than the others menüonèd, has liad less experienee in ahaking bands, bat he perform it gnwefully. thestendy stream of visitors flled throiif;h the reecrtion-room they passed out by the cloors on the northside and Iduiul their way into the hall again throoghthedinipg-room. The majority i directly out ot front door, but a larce number remained and went into the drawinn-toom on ÖW west side, where ¦ted by mwbJ ladies, was waittoB to receive them. A verv few [adiea we mong ílíe ciiUers, but a [a.-u-e of the gentlemen visitors tooi adv.intae of the opportunity to pay their respects to Gov. Alger's amiable wtfea Mrs. Alger, who wore n plftin black silk dress with jet ornamenta, was assisted during the afternoon by Mrs. Foraker, Mrs. Col. Duffield, Miss Carrie Alger, Miss Fay Alger, and Mrs. i'latt. Mrs. Foraker, who came from Cincinnati with her hnsband, Gov. Foraker, Monday, wore a handsome black dress of brocaded velvet with jet ornaments. and carried a bouquet(Hf roses. Mrs. Dufñeld wore a black satin dress trimmed plainly. Miss Carrie Alger was dlMMd in a dark-brown silk with brown velvet trimmings. Miss Fay Alger wore a very dark-green silk dress trimmed plainly. Mrs. Alger and Mrs. Foriker stood in the center of the room to receive their iruests, the introductions heing made by Col. Duffield and other ci He ¦men. As the visitors passed out of the ladies' room their places were quickly tillfd by others, and for ot two hou-s botli rooms were crowded to their utmost capacity. At f o'clock the crush u great that a person entering tlie front door oceupied ten or fifteen minute. In reaching the point of introduction in the gentlemen's reception room. The la liet calling passed directly into Mrs. Alger's reception room, the crush bciiii.' .i great that they would not venture intu UM other room. As a consequence, shortly after 6 o'clock Gov. Alger, follon-ed by Senators Logan, Evarts, Manderaon aru! PalmSr, and Gov. Foraker, pateed across the hall into the dining-rootr. and were mtroduced to those of the lady callera who were in the room at the time. They remoined in tho drswing-rooxn for some time,and the stream of gentlemen callan was quickly turneJ into the latter room. The reception now became still more informal, and senators, goveruors. judges, legislators, and a host of lessei lights, minglrd freely and conversed among themselves or with tlie hulies. Several prominent local repnblicaHI held little juceptions of their own in various corners of tlie sacious drnwingroom. A the afternoon wore on tho number of callers began to lessen, but still carriage nfter carriage rolled up to the door nuddepositöd its load. As G o'clock approached, and after that hour, a large number of peilestrians, mauy of them poople returniiiiï from work, passed in to pay their respecta to the govenior and bis tl i guests. As the crowd slackened the latter came out mto the hall and distributed tliemsehes in various places, Uilking to all corners. A few minutes before i fdoek Senator Evarts left for Col. Dnmeld'M reidence in the liittei's cnrriai'i . About hiüf an hour later Srnatom Mandi'ixjn and 1'nlnu -r took their lciive. The ladies remiiiiH'd in ttte ilrawing room imtil 7 'o'clock. (iovs. Alger aiid Forakcr and Senator Logan chatted pleasantly with those who continuea u rnve nin m last mentioned hour. When tlie little Frcnrlidoek on the mantel chimed seven strokes the last caller had departed, and the solemn-visaed porter r#vit the door to with a sigh of relief as the mmble of the last retreating carriage died away in the frosty air. The lame gathering which took possession of the gubernatorial mansión Monday nfternoon was as truly representativo of Michigan republicana as any that has ever como together in Detroit. While a large number of staunch demorrats were present, the masa were republicana of greater or Iess prominence. As Gov. Alger introdnoed some of the lattei to Gen. Logan he would f renuently say: "This is n thoroughbred, Genwal." "I liKe to meet thoroutiM'rocK " was tho general's invariable resi)onse,with an extra shake of the hand. One white-hniml HlrtlmilHn from tlu; interior of the state, who was flfty yta n old whcn the repulilioan pnrty was formed, came forward tottorina witli the weisht of years and greeted the youthful governorsi and senators with an air of dignity and pride. Several colored gentlemen met with a most cordial reeeption. Workmen, one or two with lunch luiskcts in thcir hands, prOMad in to gZMp t'l hands of the leaden ot their party.

It was something bef ore 8 o'clock when ie guests begnn to arrive. They camo on oot, on cars, in private carriages and ired hacks, but they came in a stream ud they came close together. This na Rood thing. It made promptness reaonably po?sible, nlthouKh it fllled tlie treet with a Rrnmbling crowd who, imitient of delay, swore in soft, low ndertones, and asked questions (is to ie canse which uobody could answer ud to which they expected no replies. ne would think that at a bimquet, or ither with a bauquet in prospect, peole could come in something like a good iiimor. It is true the tiger growl most ¦rociiiusly is it draws near its food, but no accountiug for the human rowl. Well, the WRiagM came in ptrrams, iovíiil; iuto Scoond streot and drsofas rg tg their c&rgoee onto the sidewalk just t the northeast corner. A oarpet or natting stretched to tho door-way, ud tlio nwinging doors of Ilie estibóle or lobby were held [en, so that, barriug tho obstructivo lirong, the way was easy. Of course the su:il crowd of lookers-on were there. í oíd soldicrs among tliem, too, ongry for a look at John A.

Likely enough his miad went back totha Uithof last Muy, whcn in his rooms in the Leiand house, in Bpringfleld, lili nois, he reeeived the COngratulatlons of his sopportotis. In front o! Senator Billy Masón, his race Snahed witli exeitemont, and stained' with the effort of the oratoricnl delivery with wliich he was nominatiug ''Gen John A. Losan of the glorious state of Illinois" as the presidential candidate of the repnblican party for 1888. It muy have been a lit-tle previons on the part of Blasón, bul Logan smilad then jus! as he smiled this night, and the grip of liis hand was as firm and manly at thai whicb he closed upon the waving fin of lill Maon at the end of the flerce senatorial agbt whicli Iet Lambert Tree into Belgiom as minister, aiul opDad the way into the sonate for John A.

If the general liad any reminiscenoes oí tliis sort they were briefly entertained, for a moment later lic was ushered into the hall, and the eyes of the people were turned npon Kvarts, who bobbed out of and skipped as blithely across the sidcwalk as though he were nearer 16 thau CO, Mr. Duilield following him with fine dignity and good composure. Then came Ohio's handsoine COvernor- -recoynized ly ; few and cheered by the lol- and Senators Conger and Palmer and tlio rest, while the crowd thnt held the spaces at the intersection of High street and Second waa all in a fine state of excitement and glowed with cnthtisiasm. Why, an OV( rllow meeting without bread and meat wonld have been hailed as a splendid incident by the throng tliat pushed and jostled cach other in mad desire to see the distingnifihed gnects of the Michigan club. And the Michigan club! How did it feel? Wall, we might as well underst.uul eaeh other right here. If the public must know that they will have to get another boy to teil them, for tlie journaliBtifl ien is not held over this screed that can reveal any part of their priilc and delight. Why should not its members feel good? They stood upon the threshold of realizing the reward of months of earnest andeavor, they wore the liosts of the most distingnislied iiun of the great party of wbioh tli.'j are such an important element in this state, and the glow of self-satistactin scttlcd into linea of complaceucy on their faces and they HN happy. It is just as easy to jump the Intermedíate to raakethe statement ha ving stood for ,i moment at the threthold of reward they crossed it with firm step and grasped it tinnly. They met with uo untoward aooident, their anangementa resnlted in complete inOOeflS, and they have the earn est and hearty congratulations of all their guests, the peoj)le of the state, and the rcpablican party generally. After this brief excursión this narrative takes up tlu: movement of the who, until uovr, have stood paüently at the door and tiltered past the ticket tak. era into the hall. There can benothing viiin-ijlorious in the Btatament i)f M r. Miiek of the reoeption cominittee, that h hand omer banqaet luid n e v e r b een ui in this state, and few il imy in the conntry. It was a beautiful cene. The decorater and the caterer, suiruni; witli tho best foundation for effi work- ampie spaces framed in gracefal line8_had lost no opportunity. One luiiulred-thonpand square feet of rnulticolored flags caught up in mei ful fettoonR and draped in wavin I color, Rwayed npon the walls and hung f rom the oeilings. On a raised was the table of the goests, back of it the open etage set in a parlor scène. tver it the prosceninm archoiiliniiniting with a picture of Washington, and floatina down on each side two ureat llngs of the United States. A. great bold dash of color circled the hall on the bnlcony rail and framed the ïablea below, while it set off the gay costtd pretty faces of the ladies, who sat above and smiled with animated faces on the scène below. Aronnd the guests' table, where sat Senator Tom Palmer as chairman, nanked by Logan, Evarts and Foraker, stood pots and hot-house boxes of palm, cactus, fern, tráiling vines and olean ders. liich flowers in delightful profusión huns over the great silver ejyerqne in the center, and the sheen of the dnmask linen, tho flash of the orystal il ie softer tones of color of the china imd the silver gave ásense af lnxuryalmost oriental in its first impression, but beautiful Biuiply in the taste witli which it was arranged, and effeetive because of tlie occasion Rnd surroundings. Tlien on the floer below the other tables stood, every one in line at end and direction with its fellow, every castor in range so that to cast the eye upon one was to include a number in perfect order - every saH dish, overy butter plat. every celery urn. every knife and fork, every jriecee monte, standing just in tlie same relation io eaoh othor on every table. There, too, wera the wuiters, as fine a lot of 6wallowtailed men as you oould find in a diiy's ride, every ono erect, arms folded and headq np. Tho fine head waiters, too, their authority indioated by boutxmierea on the Ispela of their cont and their position at tho ends of the tables. It would require pomethin? more than b paBsWe glanos to rasp the details that went to fonn tho wholo picture, but if the unfortunntc rmapln WtW were absent could only onderstand that it was a comliination of tasteful colors in a splendid interior, lianüsoine well-dressed men liad gatbered there - that there was the indiciition of a strong appeal to the jialato, jmd tho promise of a heap of uraüticfilion to the stomach, that woman numerous in qimntity, glowing in beanty and fine dross looked down from the gaUeries, thai delightfol musio gave estranoing irtflncnoe to the scène, and that the lustre of half a dozen electrio litrht were shed over all, he may catch a passing reüeotion of the beauty of the piclurc, which evun as a tableau rirant has liad no rival in this city. Ü the gueats filed in at the door they were directed to the left, along the north Bnd of the hall. Htre the mueic;tand had been built, under which they liad to jiasR.

The cloak-rooms were too limited in space tor the great number of coatí, aud lints and ambrollas and canes, so that many gaeste oarried their possessions to their places and put tliotn under the chairs. The cadets gave great aid iu rahering, aud of them it can be eaid, ing Shakespeare, "At ushering match them wlm can; the ladies oalled them sweet" 01 oooise the receition oommittée, and, indeed, all the members of the club, greeted tliem heartily, and gave their hospitable efforts to aid everyone to be at home. Wliat a pity it was that the ladies who lilk'd the gallery could not have come down and helped Utose Óshera. More than tliat, it is fair to think they would liked to have done it - some of them at least. There is nothint; that lacks chivalry so maoh as politics, but if a vote could have been taken last niyht of the guesta whellier the ladies should be asked onto the floor, there would have been a tremendous aye, to shake the roof of l'rincess, and a step would have been taken townriLs rcmovin;; the stigma apon the social courtesies missed out of the swirl of politics.

As has always beeii from timo out of mind customary in similar affairs, tlie MI ved for the newspuper reportera were ruthlewsly invaded by those whose claim to fill themwa-. ntiito out of place, and as has al ways been tho cnse the committee in cha rao of this departmont had their own friends to occupy them and take up the needed room. I Precedent has established this custom mul protest ia of course valuelesa, for as it has been so will it nlways be in snch Caaes and so it was last evening. WhMJ the Rpeeehat bogan, however, the reporters took iiospession of the front of the table oocupied by the distingnishcd guests, aud had the bost posüible opportuuity to hear the speeches. As necessory to the musical part of the entertainment, the quartet of the Arion club sang from the stage behind the raiseil talilc. and receiyed part of the gcnerous that was given to l'rof. Spiel's orchostra. It was worth while to listen to the cotnmentson Logan and Evarts, who shared with Palmer, Congor, and Foraker the attention of the throng. They sat within plain view of the cutiré company, nnd bore the scrntiny well. Perhap hnlf of the guests had seen them before, bnt their stronglymarked faces left no doubt in the minds of all others as to their identity, and they beeame the object of nnrelenting ObseF T vation. In ttie early part óf the flinner the stage, which had been set t a parlor, admitted so many drafta that the people shivered, andjthe curtain was rang down. exposing the iceberg, the wreeked ship, and the enormons bout behind it in attractive and highly cntertainiug perspective.

ThO sayina that "etaraal Tigüanoe Utht price of liberty'' is as trun today as ever. Il has been said tl'.Bt "revolutions never go backward:" bnt it is oqually true that tlie rpults of revolntiöns never liave Irtd their fullest fruition because of relaxed effort aud iudifference in guccecding goncrations. It was thp fortune of many of M èO sce the political utar in the easi which hernldcd the birth of the republican party. I he awnkened conscience of tho nineteenth century welcomed it. Strong men boreitin their nrms. watehed over iN youth, ;uarded it. aaolescettCe,a&d stood amnzcd at a defeat in lts early mnnhood.

Vliat made the repnblicarl party the robust. invincible ayent that it has been, was the fact that it took in cbargt the heart of humanity, inspired it with lofty pttTpOM and made rül material niirstions subordínate. ThoH material qupstions have in tnru been hábdled with au Intel ligenoe bom of that purposo. which has bronghl our country to her present mmmanaing staten amana tlie natious. The triumph of the republiean party was ouo of tho epochs of uil times. The emerSence of christendom from the dark BAQJ and thp revival of learning marked the iicw birth of thé intellect.

It is for us to determino which is the oase. If ttie nation is beinj degraded it is the province of the reptibUcan party to appïy a counter force. If the republican party has not met the reqnirempnta oi itposition, M tho uardian of the pnbhc run-cicnoo. tot na at once set about re1 (ii in i ri _r il from within. A party oannot live on its record rury more than a nicehorse oh its peditfret, a country on ils lu-tory or : family 011 its traditions. The history of tlie rcpiililican party has been so alorious, its achievements o unpraoedented, that oue may well stnnd abashed hen aaked to blnze for it a pathway worty of itn past; but we mnst remèmbM that althongh the decisive bctttes of the world liavo been (oaeht at loim intervals, tlio torces, of which the] are the eulmination, have been and are in daily operation.

The re publicnn party is and shall be the ot' our new civilizatiou, which, hayins been snbmitted to tlie urbitrainent of the sword, shall stand as the civilizni i.m ..r the massesi and notof the few; the civilizatiou of law, and not of foroe. Asainst us is arraypd a . tty which, Ohiuese-Uke, is looking over its shotuder, wedded not to the glories, but to the errors of the past. It is uot savory in the nostrils of the American peoplo. What the Austrian empire ia to Europe the democratie party is to American politics. It is composed of poli! ie d 11 tui-, i SUivs, Macyars. kopt toether by oommon nnimosities, common fears and common nppetite, and dominated by an intellittent. implacable and uncrnpulona aiintocracy. The disaffected from our party and tlie political birds oi prey which hover over every Unttlefiokl, help it to qccsional viotory. It has no fixed principlee. Itisapartyof negation. It has been drawn iu the wnke of the republican party for twenty-nve Like the shark followiny the Easl Indiamen it is viailant, wary and voracious. It swallows with avidity whatcver fiillsor is thrown overboard, whetherit be broad, arbafre, or the bodies which we eau keep no loner to pollute the atmospherp of our decks. It is in power today, and we are iu winter nuarters, bnt we nre reminded by thia anniversary that the winter of Valley Forge was the forernn net of victories which made us a nation.

SENATOR EVARTS SPEAKS. The nmpniarn of Hcpubllcan l'nrty lB t)llly liceuil. Senator Palmer thcn assinned his position as toastmastor, and the vast audipnce Htttod back to enjoy what foüoved. The senator Jicüan: "Tho ftrst toast to be ri'ponded to is 'Washington, the Nationalist; the Fcbpral Union tho Consummation of his'.W'ork." In ether words, we believo that Washington belie,.l with Hamilton in a strom central government, and differed very decidedly from Thomas Jefferson. The gentleman who will respond to that toast has been fltly chnrnctorized by onr governor as an eniiiipnt jurist, and I would add the distinguished diplomatist;thc man who bore a very important part in the (leneva award, formerly seoretary of state, and who now represent tho great stato of New York in the United States enate. I think I have doseribed him so that I need not repeat his name, the Hon. William M. Evarts. Fow men conld exoite more intcret in their apiiearanoe in Detroit than M r. Kvnrts. Tho fact that Americalis havn come to know their public men rather by cartoon than faithful likeness is respousible for the feeling of dinappointmetit showed by evoryone who saw the New Vork senator for the first time.

I am not accnstomed to such laree nnd nch earnest asspmblages {of politica 1 ootopany, sxoept in conueotion with MUttpakml nnd with eleotions: but it coueurs with niy own jndginant - aud you have anticipated it in yonr own action - that the campaign of the repiiblican party hetjau on the nisht of the day the republican party waa defeated. I think I am justified in thia, afl no mero phrase of rhetoric, wheu I point your attention to the resolute and manly array that has been made in overy state where we had an issue, a place in tho senafe of the United States, nnder whaterer ili(1iltieí and ondef Whatorer diBOonragernectt, Ondef wtitovpr ;inimositic-; ;nul vi:;itevor niethodsof dpfeat. mi haa orowned the republican ]nrty in the OTMt statps of Illinois aud of Oliio and of New York iu aecnring a ,represontatiou of the prinoipln and tho interestsof the repttbUORfi party.

Now, connt the suffraííe as it was then cast; consider how it was made up, and how nuch of discouragement thero was in Ihi-i particular form in which the Rsues andtlie presentation of thp argument on both sidcs were prcspiitcd. and tliat thero wero X),000 repablioatu behind, that are roady, when the issue is presentpd in,feder:tl (]Up?tions.and in an entirely bold nnd brave rnovement, New York is nol unccrtain.

And if, in the next oampaign, tbeoontrol of the federal overnment in the hon-n-s of oonffrêas and in the exex'ntive, are uot in the hands of the republican party, it will be on account of our weakneas and not the democratie etrength. [l'rolonged applause.] FORAKER TO THE FORE. The Dashinsr (overnor on the (iovcriuncn! ol statca. A slight pause followed Senator Evart's address. His eurnestness had been of such a quiet kind, thoucrh none the lesB etrong, aR not to compel any extraordinary Outbursts of approbntion, but when he had resumed his chair the full toree of his reasoninp; seemed to come to the audience all at once, and ever.y man in tho hall, without waiting for his neighbor to takethe initiative, applauded wilh the frMtMÉ enthusiasm. When the Olapping of hands and the OheeriUghad died away, Senator Palmer annouuced the next toast. Ladies and QéYLtUmèh: Virginia has been called the mother of presidente; tut We hae a Bister andan adjoinin;; state which bidt fair to relégate oíd Virginia to the position of grandmother, and take the position of mother herself. But if she does, she will then not have Jiccomplished any more than she has airead done, in being the mother of three presidenta, and the mother (rf numberless héroes. She is tho mother of Stanton, of Grant, of Sherman, of Sheridan, of Garfield, of McPherson, of numberless others, whom I cannot recaí] at present. And from thnt stfUewehaye a (jentleman toni?ht who has t;iven up other nokgamanta to be with na, who will speak to this toast: "(hir State (iovernments: Their Relations to the National Government and to Other." I have the honor to introduce to you Gov. J. B. Foraker of Ohio. A man above medium hifiht. somewhat tender, who had been sittins at Gov. Alu'ei's left. nrose. His fnee was oval and retined, his nose long and slender. his chin i'irm. A dark. drooping mustache Bhaded his mouth. His tonhend was a rmuniiticont one - brond, high, well rounded. smooth. His hair would have been dark but for the rr.iv strands Hberally sprinkled throdgh it. Yi 't ha seemad a yonng man, and one 'uil of spirit nnd resolve. This was Gov. Foraker. There was a clear rinjj in his strong tenor voice which challenyod instant attention. and a forcefulness in his delivery which bespoke honesty. As he poks he eniphasized with Iiír right arm. Vb tlniinl) of his left hand he kept 'astened in the pocket of his pantaloous. rio said: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Viehigirn Chtb, Ladia n,,,i Ovritfomen '"'I wish I knew how better trmu 1 uo to mnke iitiiiiLr aoknowledse ment of so cordial i . and liow Mtter thnn I do to mnko a fitting reapoBM to tho kiml compliment y o u r ohairman has seen (it to )my to the reiQbllcani of ohio.

Their lnst Hohieveuiont. the victory of last ()ctolpr, wns bocause when they inangocated chat can they did it by Hdojitiiii; a platform that was full of repbbuoanum from the top to the bottom, and then proccedod to "flgh( it ont on thnt line." They belicved in the protective tnriff, Mr. Kvails; nnd, unlike rspabliosna in nomo othcr Places, the) wan uot ashnmed to i They belioved in a free lnllot nnd a fair count, and thoy never lost anopportanity to procl.iim it. [AppUnm.J They believedin tlio pmtHotk reoolleotionn of tho war. .¦ind they n.-vi-r hcsitatcd to appcal to them; [appliiust'l - ccrtainly never for fear they mijiht crample the feelings of ome osthetk miiKwunip. The; were deeidedly mnlrl- a thnt in tlm progresa of the rampaiRn they anc 'Rally Round the Flag, Boys,1' nnd "Maiching Throngh Georgia." AnU I might add one thing else there, they did not have any patience with this preténge of n democratie reform ndministration at Washington, ,-uid they did not hesitate to Bay Ihat. eithqr. Nobody in Ohio appcaled to republicana to voto the rBpttD. lioan ticket in order that they might indorse n demoeratio ndministration, and as I said n maniuit agO, going npOD that line, they worked out the victory that has been alluded to, lint I did uot come hero to talk nbont the republicana of ( )hio. I havo said that mrrob because of what yonr chairman ha Men tittosayof the illustrious leader nf our jnn-ty in days that aro gone by. 1 Ih'.v won their repvUSttoU by alwaye standing for republicauism, without apolograng to dnybody whateqever. Bnt I raini' here, I fim reminded, to respond to the toast that the senator ha just ii ¦¦ui. And it is n most excellent toast, too; most excellent, not only because of Hm sentiment it broathps. bui becanse of the splendid way in which it divides itselt np. For it is not simply one sentiment, bot thrve. In the first place, w are given "Out State Governmonts," pure and simple, withont regard to anything else,' in the second plaoe, we have thoáe governmenti in their relations to the national government; and in the third place, they are ïiiuned in thoir mutual relations toeach oil" i. Now, 1 do not uitend f o talk more than forty-nve minutes on each of thesa branches. I would not midcr my eircumstances. Hut I will take tho liberty of saj-ing to you, at the outset, in order that you muy be relieved tharsby, lis I know you will be, that I do not deern it neeessary on un OOG&èion "f thll charaeter, to sny Rnything ut all about two of these divisions, tlua tint tmd the third. And I fcel this way about these división. becausB outside of their relations to tha general goverument there has never been inucli, if any. eontroversy as to the charneter of our state governnicnts, or their relatlon to each other. All agre that withiu tlieir nppropriate Rpherei nnr state goveinniputs are sovereign, that their eoif-t it tit ons aru not in the nature of contract, ns are sometimes elaimeil wit li re-pect to the national constitution. bul raat thpy are, on tha '¦""'''¦. U'iieral ordinances of government, ordained nnd eetablifldtd by the people. And this being true, there eannot. in the nature of thingx. be any 1 eontroversy aliout their authority or ny political difference as to their construction. Therefore it that all one cnnsay abont these mntters at a time like this wonld be by wajf of comment upon the ndmitted eharacter of our state governmeiits nnd llu'ir dutieatoward each other. And now, speaking about our state governments in this way. what Fhall I say of thei&r Vheu Thomas Corwin was governor of Ohio, it is reported that he once said, speaking of hi official duties, that they oonsisted chiefly of issuing commisnions to notaries public nüd pi-rdoning demócrata out of the uenitciitiary. It has been thoujjhl tlmt w:is sieakin.T in disparagement of thrir fnnctions and power! if so I would not speak iis thnt way: bnt the little experience I have had in connection with state goverutnents has made me feel it my dut. tri .-],( uk of them in terms of much higher appreciation. It is true they cannot declare war, very much to the chagrin and mortification of the govtrnor's military stad; nor eau they conclude treatics of peace - which would again, if wc happenedto have war, be still more to their chagrin and disappointinent; nor can they eoin money, which is very n mch againsi the interest of the governors. for if they could they would be Sble to _'et bettei 'salaries thau. they do, jiossibly: nor can they do, seriously Rpeaking. many other things thut properly partain to independent sovpruignty; but by tlieir legislatures they do provide the laws. and by their judicial tribunal? they do settle the disputes that pertain to the domestic concerns of the 60,01)0.000 of people wiio constimto íhe American natiou; and as agenta for this purpose they constituía the most important feature of our somewhat complex, but most fortúnate ditrilmtion of that tremendous poHtioa) power ar to eovern this L'reat repnblto. In Ohio nlone, and I refertothat state siniply beemse 1 huppen to kno7 something about it there, and ttiat you niay mt an idea of what thut power amounis to, we have today more people, more intcrests, more varied industrie', L're.iter wealth, and a thousand timet more btuaem transaoUona in a minute than they had in the whole of the thirteen colonies when the declaration of independence waa adopted. And as it is with i 'hio, so. too, is it. in greater or lesa degree, with ftvers other state of tho unión. Hut in thinking Of those dutic you do not get tho full mensure of tho powers and duties of tkeM governments; yon get thai only when you beur in mind also that in aililition our stale ;;nv. provide fot the poor, t.-ke care of the afHictcd, deal witli the life and liberty of the criminal etaMMi regúlate the eiereise of the elective franchise -and by looking through ( Ihio you will 8ee how important that Fiaa beoome- educate our cfiildren, and sustain and promote onr civil and religioim liberty." It is only when all these mattere are borne fa mind that we have the fnll measare of the powers and duties of our state governments. and learn and uuderstand why it U they have alwaya enjoyed, and deserved to enioy, a warm placo in tha heaats, and r ealous defense at the hands of the American people. But that is enough on a subject tliat I did not intend to say anything abont. As to their relations to enen other - for I must go throngh the toast in order- they are pointed out, I might say, and dtauiM the matter tliere. and defined in tlic constitution of the rnitcd BtetM) and any oue who may go and read may learn. So you eau. so far as oold legal provisions are concerned; but the duties of state to state are not fully understood and appreciated until something else is taken into account: not fully understood and appreciated until thd oharaeter of our uniou is fully cousidered and fully appreciated: only when we renicmber that we are bound togetlier by indissohible tics, that what affects ons sectkm of this great country, whpther tty or adverslty, Rffeotu the other, no matter f-om whnt -tate a man comes; v.hether nn Mr. Evarts lias, from New York, or asCieti. bogan has, f rom Illinois, m are rtill part and )arcel of one comnuin people. No matter where you may go in all tliis broad land, win! her to Ohio, Pcniisylvauia, New New Enaland, Virginia, or tho Oarolinas, Georgia, Mississlppt, oracross the Itoeky Mountiiins to the l'acific slope, you still have all the while the same con-liintiou beneath your feet, the same Sag flontiug over vour heail, and t'ip same destiny béfore you in comtnou with the I ¦ "pie among whom yon mingle, and it is only, I say. when all this is borne in mind tliat tho duties of state to state and their relations in all the fullness of meaniug are understood and appreciated. Bnt whon that feeling obtains, then it becomes au easy matter to give fnll faith and credit, as the cqnntitution enjoins, to the judicial proi-et-dingi of other states, to t-urreudpr fugitivos to justicp, to acoord the rights of citizciiphip. aud to do evorything else that a stateought todo, for the effect of sueh a feeling is to inspire a patriotism that blotsout the petty pre.indiceRimd jcalousips that are only tod hkely toarise withm the cireumseribsd hmits of a state aaaiust other states, imd tills a maii's miad and his soul, too, with that larger. higher, better, broader, nobler thought that niak.s him forget thai he isa Michigander, a New Yorker, a Penngylvanian, a MluiMippian, or a Oalifornian, and ramembw only that he is a citixen of the United State of America, When that is remembered, then it is eaj] for si to do hordutyto tato, For tluse duties nre then rendered with a fcnljrhtly courtesy and a Msterly affpetion that makes the staíes a veritnble blessing to each other and a constant Mipport to the union. And now i come to the other branch of my subject, the one I intended partioulariy to speak about, and want to gay something about, if I have not nlready talkedaway allmy time and more, to- for I find it is ehsj when a man gets to talkin;: to a republican audience to go on nnd not know just when to stop I wtmted especially to talk about thi Öüid branoh, rather tlmn those other two branches of tlii sentiment, hecause of tho oharactftr of this occasion, fur this is not only n politicrvl oooasion, but it is a republican politica] ¦ md it will forover accounted one of the ohief mul crowniiur glories of reputjliotuiiam that oorpartj inoald have for the ft#t tdme inthehuton of onr oountoy, and, as we trust, for nil linio, tu oome, nutlioritntiM'iy (ictin(.l and eetablished the relations of i' i ilu1 general uovrrnment. l'nlikc thee other two división of my sentiment, this has been a poUtioal question from iIk vim-, beginning of our gOTernment. Foï Bei entyyears it w;i:. a constant eource of oontention mul a mo.t alMnjiiui: oause oi prebonsioo io Vmericnu politii's. rJ'he ttonble wrtí wi' oodIcI qoI aree sbout that urc-it work of CSeorge Wa and his aseociates in the convention to which Mr. Kvarta has so beantifnlly oonld not agree ai the on even as to who had made it, whether il had been made ty the statisor bj people: mul not being able t; ngrpp About that, we wero at 1 varianre about everything The trouble was that all previi tempta. to bring aboat unityof itrength and action for the American people had ? in the name of and by the state, or the oolonies hoiore them. The] made the continental coH(rre8e, they made the conn and the t' ny of the British governneni i the statet 30 distrostfui and jealoM i controlling authority - that the ínt i was tu t;ivi Hie confedera! i";i bo nigRardly a grant of power ai to o .:h!ent npon and Babordinatt to the sliites for all practical pUTposea. Henee it was that the idea was bi continually cnltivatcl. so fa: wrs anything practicable in attomptaof govemment, mat thete oooM c no eral goveniment exoept as it gtoceeded from the states - they were the Dreatoro, and it was the croature. But ili" fallare of theconfederation tanght a lasson, the most importar" . that has ever been taoght tothe Lmerlcan people, for it was the leMoo trom which was born our preeent t'onn of governinent, and from whioh has come all the glory and nandenr of the Americnn naiae. Il made the constitution not only nere.isftry, but possible. for it made enoiifjli of tiic at that time like Washinidon and Hamilton. to Onderstand thaf ihero could neyer be American Uationality without nnion, and there could not bé American nnion without a t,'enei"'.l government, which as to the k wils not only supreme over the itat( ¦well as the people. but which alko and even more partacularly Bhould latei; independent of the statek as I creation and authority. And henee it was that the framere of the constituüon proceeded fróm tho ürst npon the idea that the coustitution their representativos, but by therepregentatives of the people, electsd hy the people. and iu convention aasembled for that parpóse, and that in like inanner, when should be ratiiied and adopted, not by the statp: or their represpiitatives, lint by the people acting throügh their d ed for I parpóse: and henoe - for it was cxecuted M designed- the eoncluBiveness and signiflcanca of the declaratiqn with which'itbeains: "W e, the people ef the Unitpd Btate, in order to form a moro perfect unión " With sach ; declare - tion, with such a lii-tory. it teems incrediblethat thsreéoold evw! bnve been serioua controversy as to the relations of the staten to the general govorrmipiH. Much stransef still does it appê&r that it i'vcr could have been necessary to resort to war and bloodshed to -ettle snob a dispute, and yet euoh is liisiory. Andwhy?

It requires bold men, men of nervp. men that are not afraid of the truth, and men that are not afraid to assert the rights of the people. So let the republican party be wliat it wa?, a few years ago, fearles-. liforoas, enerijetic, ooid, full of pütriotism, full of deteniiiniition, of the iron will that belonps to men.

Aud I presume, to giye a fitting response to this toast, aecording to the eastern idea, I should come here covered with the sombrero of the cowboy or the leather-breeches of the miner. I must go to Kansas or to Colorado. Will, let me for a few moments advert to those three states that 1 am willing to confess constitute the riotous. turbulent and rowdy west. What is their brief history? All of them have come into being si nee the birth of the republiean party. Kansas came into the union, with her strange. marvelous history, at the outbreak of the great war, when republican Bentiment beat democratie treason. She came to us under very remarkable circumstances, and those circumetances are the more remarkable in that history is repeatiug itself. Tlie very measures, the very means, the very motives that actuated the democratie party in 1861 are actuating the democratie party in the congress of the United States today m the case of that new and great empire of the nortnwest. the territory of Dakota. borne speaker said tonight. very happily, that the democratie ]arty seems to learn nothing. And in the twenty-hve years that have etapsed sinco the nttempted outrage upon Kansas, the democratie party have ceriamly learned nothing with referenco to the admission of states. Upon tlie northern border of tlie fair state from whence I come, is this territory of Dakota; settled in very largo degree, as the state of Nebraska is settled in large degree, by citizens of ( mo, Indinna. and of the península of Michigan; a thrifty people, a christian people, numbering south of the forty-sixth paralel nearly VAOOO with a ratio of literacy greater than that of any other territory or state in this uuion: demaudlng admission year after ycar at the hands 'of congress, coming in due and ancient form, coming as many another territory has come to congress bcfore, with a eonstitution republican ín form. and asking admission. And yet Dakota is to be denied admission, denied selfgovernment in this self-govornlng republic, for the same rèason that the democratie miuority in 19G1 voted agoinst the admission of the state of Kansas. But in the Bensteorthi Onited States, a short time a."o, when the Dnkota bill was bronght bf {ore that body, had the manlini'ss to vote for th( admission of that territory. I honor tlie Hon. Daniel Vorhees for that actlon. Whatthe fato of the in th house of ropresentatives it is not liaril U foretell. With the largo democratie majority there. this territory will be denied admission. and until some corrupt and villainous bargain can be made bj which, in the electoral collego and m tho senate of the United States, the democracy can see a chance for au even división of votes and the perpetuation of their power, Dakota will remain out m the cold. Why, my feUow republicana, if there was no other issuo than this upoi whieh to make the campaign of 1H88, it seems to me that would be all-sufficient for it is an outrage, the dimensions of , which will grow upon you as youthmk or hear more of it. But I do not prdpose to attempt, at this late hour, to make, any üetailed remarks. I want to congratúlate yon upon this rnagnificentpolitical feast which yol have had here tonight Late as tl hour is, I would very gladiy have re mained in my seat to hoar more of the senteuces of Evarts, and the stalwart, patriotic utterances of John A. Logan. do not take so gloomy a view of the tutu rt as does Gen. Logan. It seems to me the signs of the times are brighteuing for late. Ibelieve that that element of the republican party that brought to it defea in 1884 will acquire wisiloiii by Inss. do not refer to the rrnigwilmjj element I doubt whether, ' if one wottk come from the dead, he couli teach wisdom to that defectec part of the republican organization. Hu I refer to other elements Hrïthin ou ranks. I refer to the republican labo element. I believe that it will see, as ou friend Guenther said in the course of hi remarks, that tho proper home of the laboring man is within th ranks of the republicau party, refer to that other element, worthy o mach praise, for they are seeking, 1 think in a wrong marnier, to accomijlis] great and abundant good - I mean th prohibition element of the republieai party. Applaus-. ] I feel that they wil iee, by the year 188, that it is not wis dom, not the cause of true temperanet reform, to repeat the fiasco of a St. John candidato. DAnd so believing, as I think of th great issues that are to enter into tha canvas, as I think of the noble leaders whowill (raap the standard with tlmissues imprinted upon it, as I think tha we may march on again, iu 1888, uude the lead of James G.Blaine [applauie] or perhaps under the lead of Ver mont's great statesmau, Kdmuud applause]. or perhaps under the lead of this favored son, not ouly of th Empire state, but of the country at large Evarts - applause] - or perhaps ande the lead of the Black Eagle of the Wes - [prolouged cheersj - or perhaps goint, out into the country close to the rowdy west, under Allison of Iowa, or Ingnlls o Kansas, I say to you that with any o these or the other leaders I migh name to you, in 1888, the re publican party will, I believe, marel oji to victory, aiul that unde the gnidance of the Michigan club th state of Michigan will stand where sh stood when Zach Chandler bore her ban ner aloft. fProlonged applauee.] Anc when that time shall come you will tind standing shoulder to shoulder with you in the victorious host of states thos wMch do not defect, even in off years- the states of the rowdy west.

Although I had beei told that they would require at my hand a few remarks upou the toast o "Washington the Protectionist," I am bound to carry that speech homo with m tonight. But having listened as I hav to the words of wisdom of our friend from Washington, I want to say on word to them on behalf of tlie people one of whose humble members I no am. I want to ask you, gentlemen o the United States senate, to go back t Washington and act just as plucky as yo have talked tonight. And I want to sa to you that we have shown you the kim of peopl that are at your backs When I think of the effort just beint, made to strike down the great industrie of the United States, and espeejally th great industries of the statr of Michigan I know that I only echo the sentiment not only of the republicans of our stati but also of large numbers of democrat who live within our borders, when f-uy (to1 blett the republican senati The country is looking to them now fo its relief. The country knows that tha body stands today true to the party tha has ilone so nmch for this nation in s many ypars gone by. And it has don me good to sit here aud listen to th wonderful words of courage that hav flown from the lips of these dignitiet senators. I eipected it to come from Logau's grammar, but further than tha I had fears. We leave here touight, all of us full o courage and full of hope. because w have heard nothing but the same sentí ment that in the past carried our part on to victory. Let each man of Mirln gan go to his home filled with hopa and jguewed courage, because we know thnt ay the principies that we lovo so much re not dead. Michigan republicism is livo. I know these gentlemen feel ít rom the presence of this meeting, banking jou for this kind greeting, and cnowing it ia time we all went home, I id you good night. Senator Conger being called loudly or, addressed the chib as follows: Mr.Pre$idmL and frllow memben of ie Michigan Club.' It was understood efore I left Wnshington, that I, as one f the early members of this club, and ther gentlemen belonging to it were not to speak tonight; but I came here to join with you as members of the Michigan lub in hearing on this occasion these listinguished gentlemen and others here expected to meet with us to fill out the rogram of tonight and hear what they lad to say to us. I do not need to talk, f I could spenk with the voice of an angel, to the men whose faces I see ïere touight, about republicanisin, about duty, and nbout the wants of he country, and about the protection of our labor and tho protection of all the nterests of this great fttate of Michigan, which sieepfl here surrounded by its border lakes and dotted by its interior akes, with all its great industries, vitli all its magnificent proporions, but, better than all, with hat grand army of republicana which, wheu the trumpet calis to real danger, to he institutions of the country, is nlways awake and alive, whether for the battleof he rebellion or for tho protection of the nterests of the American people in common with thcir own. Sonic time we will meet here to consult ind to talk in our owu way, make our )vn plans, devise our own methods, give hought and uttcrance to our own emoious, and hopes. and wishes, and give directiou to our own efforts. No man has sat around theee teblM tonight, none of the old war horses of he republican party, and none of the lioung members of that party, but what n looking over this vast crowd, knows within his heart that we have but to consult, we have bnt to organize the tremendoni streucth of tho republican party in the state of Michigan to carry it with a triumphant mnrch to victory. When that time comes we will need to talk, but toniííht we will retiect upon tho word-; of wisdom and eucouragement whioh have been given us by rjurmiestê whom we turra invited to come and join us ou this occasion, and I, iu behalf of tho club, and I know in full accord witli tho sentiment of every member here tonight, thank theee gentlemen for having left. the halls of Eegislation and spent a whole day and anothêr day in going and retarning to look upou our taces and join in our deliberations. I will not detain yon longer tonight. I have a great hope that sotne time in the future we may meet and gird on the armor for the coming light, andlhat we eau have such a crowd together as we have tonight, the old men for counsel, the young men for 8trenth and the republican party rrjuvenated and strengthened, panoplied for theeontest in this state for the next year, and strengthened for the great conU'st which will decide the fate of this country, in ray judgment, for years to come, that will be upon us in 1888. The fires of your patriotism are rekindled at the altar tonight. and when I meet you again, as we shall meet here and elsewhere the coming eampaign, I do not doubt that I shall find the glow of patriotism and the energv of character peculiar to Michigan men exhibiting itself in harmony, and in labor, and in struggle, and in endeavor to win back our state to the proud, old position which it occupied from the commencement of the war, as the birthplace of the republican party anil the state in which it has carried out its best principies to full fruition and to ]erfection among our own citizens.

While the state has bees v.t olose in late election, and in Bome cnoofl tho rnpnhlinnn pnrtT has met wifeh reverses there, 1 am BDTe that an earnest canTB upon the living issues of the day will rasult in restoring tho olil ri'uublican mpremacy. There isnothing which tho democratie party has done durin íha last yt.'ar where it nae Been in power t invite the coofidence of old Mn-hi-an repnblioani. There is nothing which the democrat arty incliin's to do or threaton to do that should awakbQ anythhig bot distruflt and fe;ir in the breaste of cftizens of Michigan. In no ttate liave promiiseetn tlie direct ion of civil service reform b'-en more plainly violated than In Michigan, for no state has the patronage been niore clearly bestowed a a reward for political service, and at the dictation of the one man power. In no other part of the union wil! the industries of the peoplfl be more unf&vorabb afft cted by oontemplated deinocratíc tarïff legislation than in Michigan. 1 am sure that Uwee and other great coiiMilenuumB will occupy the in inda of tho people of the stat in the coming canvas and out of it. I am full in tlu1 faith that the republkan party will emeru'1 victorious. From in y kuowledge of Michigan repubUcanisni 1 am ceitain of ono thine, tiij party in the coming contoet will not fïnd itself weakened by the Iops of politiciil offices held innlir the general government. Michigan republicanas are not made of the btnfl that 1. -penda apon politiral iwitronage. No republican holding office onder the present administrstion shonld deslre or wvk U remain in office. No friend of hts tiiould dettire or seek to knp him there. The bKner be is out and in the rankt and tsharing the fortunes of the party thi bet ter for him and the bettftf for ;irt. . 1 believo this ia the sentiment of aarnest republicans thronghout the country. Thm iepahlican party gained its finrt and frceat$s1 victories when all the powem of a hostile administration was bro.ight to bear again.-t it. 1 do not belieye the spirit of the party is so broken tliat it cannot aohieve new tarDinphs under like oonditions.

James Xi. lil-.nn (hosen to Be tli# iew J'resiUent. At 11 o'clock Monday morning the pollt f or the election of officers of the club fof the ensuing year wero opened. J. W. Davis took charge of the ballot-box, which was placed on a table in the front ]nrlor of the club house. The day being one on which business was more or le-s suspended, enabled many members of . the club to vote eftrly in the day. The outside member early sought the club's headquarters, and after casting their ballots, joined in the mild dissipation of good ci;;ars, and the intercourse of men participating in a common cause. The election continued all day long until the hour of closi ng the polls, 5:30 o'cloek. There was no attempt at display made at the club-house, the decorations being simple and modest. Suspended from the porch, over the entrance, were two national flans tuoging in graceful folds and entwiiicd also abouttheside pillar of the porch. In the front parlor were hung large crayon portraits of ex-Gov. Bagley, Gov. Alger, ex-Senator Baldwin. and ex-Major Grummond. Over each were crossed two small flags. Over the mantle in the back partor was a picture of Gen. (irant, the frame of the piotara being covered with crape. Cheerful j;rat(' fires burned in eacli parlor, and au air of pleaantry peiraded the entire club-hou-r. Very little opposition to the ticket placed in nomination was manifested and there was apparently a spirit of harmony that boded good not only to the club itself bu the party whose interests it was organized to further in this state. One thing that bore a look of encouragemeut was the presence of a large representation of the younger element of the party. The younger men were sttown an attention that will tend to arouse an interest in the club and the party's affairs that will bring into line a uew and active leirion of workers. iames Ij. Edsoti. chii. didate for president of the club, was about making himself agreeable, not prompted by a desire to do any electioneering as the ne.- - ity for that was lacking, but doing his best to make local and ooteide mrmner feel a hearty welcome. When tlie vote were counted t was found that a few bailóte for E. H. Butler in ptooe of Andrcw Mdrf'llan for the poition of tri'asurer had been cast.
