This attempt to coercothc workingmen of th* country to vote for Mr. Blaine will be remembered at the polls In iber, not only by the sturdy men it was Intended to effect, but by all Jen In the United States. You have fully [tiuorapbid to the associated pbess.1 The following address has been made imb ue by the National Democratic Committee: 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.

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 Commerce.depressed your trade,Impoverished sir. Blaine Aided In the needles. •nA rpcklts* accumulot'on of tbit unnecessary int% .HoIsresponsible for the mischief ft has occasioned, lie cannot be trusted with iu disbursement. The methods which he has 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 of determining, upon the day of anv electlou. the i«er*ous who are entitled to cast their vote* in any electlou distiict or election precinct ol any Congressional district Is vested primarily and exclusively In the State Judges of election of such election district or pre< lnct. ‘ The intended dnty of martlials and deputy marshals of the United iut sat Congrc*»tounl elections was to protect the voter on his way to the polls to submit to the Judges of electlou bis claim tn the elective franchise; to preserve at order while such claim was under consol ation, and tn secure the arrest of thoso who were detected In attempting to deposit fraud ulent v«Hes in the ballot-box under tho care of the Judges of election.

Whether the in termediary between you—between Blaine and yourself—was not Subsidy Pomeroy, and whether , proper and honest in- diguation on that occasion was so extreme that you would have sworn out right had it not been that you were a church member.

The experts ore still at work ou the books of the Enterprise, of whleb Jackson was president, and their disclosures are of the most startling nature.

About one year ago a statement was made showing a profit on hafcd of $50,000 and a dividend declared. It now transpires that the profit was fictitious and the money to pay the dividend was borrowed. It is charged that the funds misappropriated were used in speculations and' developing the Mogrnder gold mines in Wlikes county.

The foreman of the shop, James Carr, got all of tbe thirty-seven souls together in good order and coolly led them to the fire-proof stairs and sa ely to tbe ground. Troubled with doubt as to whether any were left behind, Carr quickly returned to the fifth-story, but remained a few mo ments too long, as the flames had cut off every, avenue of escai»e. He hurried to the roof aud amid the wild * xciteraent ot thousands of people he was thrown a rope from a building on the opposite aide of the street, and miking the lino fust he commenced his perilous descent, while the firemen held a heavy tar paulin beneath as a precaution, suddenly the rope snapped under the man’s weight or was burned by bursts of flames, aud Carr’s body shot down hea* foremost, and, to the horror of the rrowd of people, went directly through the tarpaulin, and was picked up from tbe stones with his neck broken aud mangled almost be yond recognition. Another thrilling scene was taking place at the fire escape from the chewing gum factory. Eighteen young girls, panic-stricken, came down pell-mell, and when within twenty-five feet of the ground the last eight jumped to the pavement, falling In a confused heap rortn- nutelv. only three of them were seriously in Jurea, they receiving painful cuts and bruises.

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.
