The Fire Works Took!
Satuo-day evening, as was previously tuinouiK-ed, the democrate of this city held a ratiHeatiom meeting. The froni steps o:1 the c o-art house were fltted up foor a speaker's stand, and a plat foirm was erected at the corner o Main and Hurcm ets., ïrom wlvx-li tfl totu'li off the fireworfeB. l'lie pyroteclwilce from tlie powde .stand viied Avith the pyrotechnics frora tlue speaker's sta.nd for first plaee, amj althomgh the latter brocght out a' ircsh boUDCta of linsuistic quiek-sho5 I'oiwl report crackers oftem, it couldn't inold the crowd ta any comparison with the -skyrockets, whistling romau camdlee, etc. Mayor Doty acted as presulent of thie evening, and in a very gracefitl way jntroduoed tihO long list of local and semi-imported speakers. The fiirst iintrod'uction made was Joihm V. Sheehan, wto had Just rcturned from the Chicago convention. He spoke of that cona-ention as being mie al tJi'S greatest gather'mgs ever sveefn in t.h'js country, and he doubted if the iike would ever be Been agtiin. He feit Bure fcbat the enthusiasm there created would take the ticket of its choiee thrwigh to victory. The venerable Ex-Gov. Felch then spoke a tew wopds oï encouragemeni to the boys. The next speaker was Prosecuting Attorney Leluman. WÈem about half way through hfc speech tlie fiireworks coinmenced going off, and though the speaker increased Wis lung power fco its fullest extent lie wa-sn't quiite equal to the emergency.

He al(j referred to the tarfíf as a robber, and said the revénúes inust be o'iily enoug-h' to pay the expense oí the national goyernment, eocnomically adminiatered!

Hd brought a heavy baas vodce to bear au the sulphurous atinosphere. He stated that he was fresh- (probably froiii the coawention) but no one heard amy part of the sentence after fresh. Aiterward the catchiing of hfcs wordsj was like the gliinpse ome gets of au object on a dark nigfrt by oecasionaj but vivikl flashes oi lightning. The effort did!i"t last long. Mr. O'Xeiil, of the ,U. oi M. Democratie Club, may be termed a semi imported orator. He. is a -young man of good áppearance, and undoubtodly good voice and urnder ordinary cirtiniistances would probably have ma(í a goort speech. lic started off witlj f he ássertiom tliat "no good democrat w.is a raSd oí a :kk,;" just at th.-u time a cainnon cracker went of and Mr. O'Xeil dodged a storm of fiire that oa.me doven ii-oin above the rem-' liante of a pocket Uiat dtdn't have force eaiough tö take rt up a sufficieni il.-i;,iii-c.
