The following address has been made imb

New Yobs, October n.-To Tilt Peons or
TBtl’siTEDStATSs: There Is only one great
i.,ue Involved In this campaign. The question
li whether thli country shall be governed
honestly and wisely or corruptly. The elec
tion ol Governor Cleveland u President and
„I Thomas A. Hendricks as Vice-President,
will insure good government. The election
of James o. Maine os President and J. A. Lo-
ean as Vice-President, will insure bad govern
ment Mr. Blaine would not be purer
a President than he was as Speaker and
member ol Ihe House ol Representatives. You
are burdened with unnecessary taxes. One
hundred millions of money, aot needed to de
fray the necessary cipeeses ot the govern-
nfut o:e annually taken from the people of
Sc Vnlted Stotea aud kept In tho treasury.
The withdrawal of this enormous amount of
money 1mm circulation baa hampered your

has occasioned, lie cannot be trusted with

employed In this campaign prove conclusive-
lTtbst the administration ol the government
3 the country ought not to be placed in his
hands. A candidate capable of using itn-
nniix*r means to Increase nls chances of elec-
lionfor the Presidency would not, If elected,
discharge the duties of that office honestly.
Mr Blaine itcrsonally supervised the preparn-
tion made by his managers for the r work in
the State election in Ohio on the 14th of Octo
ber It i* expressly provided by an existing
statute of the United States that no man shall
be appoin’ed a deputy marshal unless he Is a
(manned voter of the city, town, couuty, par
ish. election district or toting precinct in
wiuch his duties are to be performed. It la
cfftalnly the plain intent of the Federal law
that the deputies empowered to execute the
duties ot a marshal of the United States ahouM
bo reputable men, leading decent lives and
cujoylns the confidence of the community in
which they Hve. These plain provisions of
the Foderal law were wholly disregarded
at tho late Ohio election. Ruffians not
living in the election district in which they
were appointed to act and not in many in
stances even citixeus of the United states,
were armed by the marshal of the United
Ststes, under tn* eye of Blaine, and were used
in the districts to which tney were appointed,
with his knowledge, for the purpose of obtain
ing majorities by violence and fraud. The
effect produced by tnl* outrage hoc been re
markable. Tno blow struck by Mr.
Blaine at the rights of the citizens
of Ohio has welded tho Democratic
party In New York. There is no longer anv
doubt as to the manner In which the electoral
vote of that State will be cast. The Demo
crats and independent Republican-, working
haud in baud In »he canse of good govern
ment. and resolved to labor with all their
might until the eiidbae been achieved, will
give in November an OTerwholmlng majority
for the Cleveland and Hendricks electors.
Mr. Bisine and hla manager*, despairing of suc
cess In the state of New York, are attempting
to carry Indiana. New Jersey and Connecticut
by tho discreditable means employed in Ohio
o i the 14th of Ohio. While they are struggling
to accomplish this evil purpose, Ohio, rid of
the swarm of vagrant deputy marshals by
which It waa Infested at the < ictobor election,
is rallying with a determined purpose to vin
dicate its good name. In Indiana, New Jersey
and Connecticut men are forewarned and are
ready to meet the Jasue. They un
derstand that the deputy marshal
who was not at the time of bis appotntmeut a
qualified voter of the city, town, county, elec
tion district or voiiui pf«clsct in which his
duties are to be performed, Is an intruding
mercenary, whoso claim to authority no citi
zen U required to respect. They know also
the precise limits of the authority of every su-
State,under the provisions of the Federal Con
stitution determines for Itself by whom and
In what manner Ite Presidential elect>rs shall
be chosen. No supervisor ol elections, mar
shal or deputy marshal of the United States
has the power to Interfere in the smallest de
gree w Itn any person claiming the right to vote
lor electors of the Presldeut and Vice-I'resi
dent of the United States. The functions of
these officials art limited to Congressional
♦lections, and U is time that they should un
derstand that there ore well defined bounds to
their lowers in such elections even. Citizens
who are entitled to vote In any States for del
egates to the Legislature or General Assembly
of such State are entitled to vote In their re
spective Congressional districts of such State
for Uepresenta’Jvcs In Congress. The power

in any electlou distiict or election precinct ol

and exclusively In the State Judges of election

‘ The intended dnty of martlials and deputy

that the profit was fictitious and the money

The fire originated in a iraoll frame house

There was not a single dollar of insnranec

and that slightly damaged. The other was a
a total loss. „ , .
The thanks of all good peoplo are due our
colored friends for their timely assistance.
. Jstated now whether the explosion was
due to the carclesiuess of tbe company or nor.
The miners allege that It woo, but on the heel*
of a calamity like this tbe first impulse uiu-tlly
Is to attribute tho blame to the coinpauy. It Is
well known, however, that the Youngstown
company has always been very careful, aod
the knowledge that this mine was a danger
ous one and predisposed to tbe gsneratlou of
firedamp made them more careful thou ever.
The mine was Inspected every morning, and
I when the prescnco of fire damp waa delected
it wax inrarlably ordered to deny tbe men ad
mission to It until the gas had been expelled.
This was the rule, aod the officials say tt was
rigidly enforced; but it Is claimed by tbe
miners that tbe commissioner discharged a
competent fire boss obout two months ago and
bavc sine© employed in that capacity one who
was not competent to determine whether the |
[mine was safe or not.

San Francisco, October 28.—Tbe steamer
Arabia, which arrived .Sunday from f’hina
and Japan, brought the following additional
details ot the great typhoon of September 15,
which caused such terrible destruction of life
and property at Yokohama and Tokol: The]
storm came up so rapidly and with such tre
mendous fury, that no precautions could tel
taken. In Yokohama, the entire lower part
| of the city, called the “Settlement,” was com-
r mletely wrecked. Not a noose was lets susnu-
ng. The Inhabits ts made no attempt to save
their property, bat fled for tbelr lives to es
cape drowning fr«>m tbe rushing waters
driven upon the land by tbo fury of the wind.
The newspapers make no attempt to furnish
detail* of the destruction In that part
lot the city. They summarize by saying as the
Scttlemcntl was destroyed It Is u*ole*s to pub
lish any detail*. The higher portions of the I
city, being more exposed, were equally un
fortunate. Several of the largest and roost
substantial buildings were swept away as if
built of pasteboard. In that section alone 128
houses were destroyed and 990 damaged. The
lots of life on the snore was less than at sc*.
Out of 80 sailing vessels 5.T were lost, with 123
