ox. xu. x. xxan was caaeu upon to ia
troduoe Gov. Jaryis to tne immense
and eager throng of expectant listeners
Lmnn!r whom w noted manv of the
fair ladies ot Wilmington a duty
which he performed in a brief, but
forceful and entirely appropriate speoch,
in which he spoke.with exultant pride
of the material adyance made during the
last six years in the agricultural, me
chanical; commercial, financial, edu
cational and social affairs of the State.
Col. Hall's speech was a just, proud
and fitting tribute to the administration
of Gov. Jarvis, and a worthy effort.
TIJE QQYERJJQlOS SPEECH.
Upon taking the stand the Governor
was greeted with cheers from the throng
in attendance and by the display o1
fireworks. When silence had been
resumed, he began a speecn which
continued for nearly two hours and
which was one of the very best pohti-
cal speeches to which we have eyer
listened. The Governor has a fine anjl
commanding presence, great volume of
voice, an almost inexhaustiblejx)wer of
lungs, and is blessed with the most!
perfect self-possession. He attempted
no great oratorical flights nor did he
dwell among the dainty flowers or
rhetoric, but all was plain, practical.
logical , truthful and impressive. He
began by slating that, in 4 Republican
form ot government like ours, all au
thority for the benefit or control of the
people emanated from the people them
selves; and that they had the inherent
rieht to direct or control legislation by
electing to office those who would best
snbserve tho publie good ; that when
officials became corrupt, careless or
untrustworthy the people could remove
them and put more faithful officers in
In referring to National politics and
Wielntmn the Governor said that he
1VqW4MVvi- - -1 '
had never known of a law enacted by
a Democratic Congress which bad been
declared unconstitutional by the
Supremo Court, the highest judicia
tribunal in the land. Oa the oiner
hand, there were repeated instances on
record where the legislation ot a im-
publican Congress had been declared
unconstitutional by the Supreme Court,
a majority of whose members were of
the same political faith.and cited as nota
ble instances' the reconstruction acts,
the Ku Klux acts and the ciyil right
act, the former of which he bad had the
manly courage to tell a Boston audi
ence had done more harm to the South
than all the bullets shot by Northern
soldiers. The Ku Klux acts had been
declared unconstitutional, but, unfor"
tunately, not until hundreds of people
had been sent to Northern prisons,
where many of them had died and
where many more had been ruined in
health ad broken down in spirit. The
civil rights act had been tested in the
Inferior Courts for year3, with a decis
ion against it in every instance, until
at last its unconstitutionality was fully
and finally determined by the Supreme
Court. His arraignment of the Repub
lican party, in its, national legislation
for its multitude of mistakes, was
forceful and unanswerable.
Proceeding from national politics to
the candidates of the two great parties
for the Presidency, he paid a glowing
tribute to the official integrity and
worth of the Democratic candidate,
Hon. Grover Cleveland, of New York,
and challenged any one to point out a
single official act of his which would
not bear the closest scrutiny. As Sher
iff, Mayor or Governor, he had always
been faithful and true to the important
trusts imposed upon him, in conse
quence of which the people of this great
country had determined that he should
receive the highest position in their gift.
Leaving National politics and candi
dates the Governor then turned his at
tention to North Carolina, which, while
his fidelity and devotion to the United
States was not lacking, he declared to
be his first, his last, his unceasing and
undving love. Through all the varied
scenes of life, irom his boybocd'a poveir
ty and toil until now when he occupied
the hiirheat Dosition in. the eift of her
people, every pulsation of his heart had
been with love for the grand old State,
and his highest aspirations had been for
the welfare and prosperity of her peo
ple. He paid a fitting tribute to the
Democratic State ticket and drew a
graphic comparison between the condU
tion of the State under Democratic rule
as compared with the time when the
Republicans held supreme control,
much to the disadvantage of the-4atter.
During the years when tho Republicans
were in nower the State had been
nlunsed many millions of dollars in
debt, yet no railroads or other works of
internal improyement had been built,
not an, asylum for the unfortunate deaf
and dumb and blind had been thought
of and not a school house had been
erected by public authority throughout
the entire length and breadth of the
State. He showed that the
largest amount of money appropriated
for educational purposes lor any one
year under a Republican administra
tion of the affairs of the State amount
ed to the pitiful sum of only about
$38,000, while under a Democratic
administration in a single year the sum
of $621,000 had been appropriated for
the same purposes, thus making it
I apparent that in all that relates to the
1 educational welfare of the people the
Democratic party had been most truly
mindful. He spoke of Dr. York as
having, while a member of the General
Assembly, opposed every measure cal
culated for the establishment of schools,
normal . schools, asylums and other
legislation looking to the welfare and
prosperity of the State, and hence did
not consider him the proper person t
have the control of the affatrs of her
B0Yernment and the destuics of her
of space forbids us going
further into the derails of this masterly
speech. That it was interesting and
instructive was evidenced by the fact
that tho distinguished sneaker held the
undivided attention of bis vast audience
from the beginning until its end. The
best of order prevailed. The Cornet
Concert Club furnished excellent music
for the occasion. When the speech was
concluded three rousing cheers were
given for the candidates after which the

The Governor's Movements.
i- Gov. Jarvis took breakfast this morn
ing with Col. F. W. Kerchner, after
which he was conveyed to the Produce
Exchange rooms, where he;was intro
duced to members of the Chamber of
Commerce, Board of Trade, Produce
Exchange and citizens generally by
Hon. A. 11. VanBokkelen, president of
lhe first named Board. Afiicr the. cer -mony
of introduction and a few
moments devoted to pleasant conversa
tion tho Governor tnade a
-1 5 "
short speech upon business matters
which was listened f to with
marked attention by the delighted lis
teners. This being concluded, another
short time was spent in conversation
when the Governor, together with
Mayor Hall and quite a number of our
leading citizens, took carriages and
were conveyed to tne Seaside Fark
Hotel, as Wrightsville. where they
were to dine. Unfortunately, it has
rained nearly all day. which has tended
to mar in some measure the pleasures
of the occasion. l
Capt. Guilford L. Dudley, Private
Secretary to the Governor, who ac
companies him on his visit to th's city,
has received many hearty hand-shakes
from his old friends here to-day. We
1 acknowledge,, the courtesy of a call
from him tlfre morning. We were glad
to see him looking so well and to know
that he entertains, with us, an abiding
belief in the magnitude of the Demo
cratic victory mis a an.
Mr. H. M. Bowden is still suffering
very much from the injuries received to
his shoulder by the runaway of his
horse on Monday. He carries his right
arm in a sling but is still found at post
jn the bank.
The new fire-alarm, worked on the
Law system, which has just been put
up in the city, went into full operation
this morning. Through the;ourtesy of
Mr. G. H. Glass, Manager of the Tle-
phone Office here, we have-been shown
the workings of this new sysiem, which
Js yjry much superior in every res j pect
I to tnar. nnrptoiorfi in nap If. pnmhinoa
me latest improyements in the system
of fire-alarm, and has been adopted by
many ot our sister cities, , where its
great merits are universally conceded
One of the great beauties of the system
lies in the fact that it can be utilized for
police calls as well as for fire alarms.
Another advantage ot the system is
that , in giving an alarm, ony one per
son communicates to the iCity Hall
while heretofore it has been 'frequently
the case that several were talking at the
same time, thus creating unavoidable
confusion and delay.
We have been assured from one very
near his presence tb a V His Excellency
Gov. Jarvis, is highly delighted at the
eordial reception which has greeted
him here in Wilmington. The Goy
came here to fill an appointment to
make a speech on the ratification meet
ing last night, and he did notanticipate
such a powerful, popular weleomc as
he has received. He is deeply gratified
at the kindness of his welcome, and
will bear with hence, we iavo been
told pleasing and " lasting impressions
ot the kindness and courtesy and hospi
pitality of our people. f
And let us assure Gov. Jarvis here
that the pleasure has been mu
tual. It has been not only a pleas
ure but a pride , to u3 toi entertain
oit Executive and we aref glad to
know that his visit has been an en
joyable one to him as well as to us.
Somehow, it seems that this visit cf
his Excellency to our city has brought
us all into closer and more pldasant so-
cialrelation with him Chan i has been
the case on any previous occasion and
the- result has been highly gratifying.
A Narrow Escape.
People cannot be too careful when
anything like fire is to be handled
Last night, at a residence in this city,
a gentleman and his wife, having an
ia'ant in tne oea wun mem, f were an
noyed by the singing ot mosquitoes in
the net and the lady got up to fry and
set rid of them. She took the night-
lamp and approaching too near the bed
the net caught on nre. lhe gentleman
sprang up and tore the burning net
down out in uoing so his hands were
badlv burned. He succeeded in son
pressing the flames and although the
net was destroyed yet the infant sleep
ing in the bed was uninjured, as was
also a child sleeping in arcrib aJew feet
from the bed. It was ; truly a Provi
dential escape and should serve as
raining to others.
