We have cornu to gether to consider wlu*her Bristow Is imt tV •bcsfraonintbucountry fur President. (Applause) Wc have nuule up our minds before wo came that he K or else 1 guess we should not have emne. All we have to do to-night Is to arrange thu best wc know for the formation of u Brl?- tow Club, to consider wlmt Is the best method of getting up the Club sons to make it most, effective, and, if I understand the temper of the meeting, to make this the llr?t of a eerie? of meetings that will set our town on lire and our whole Northwest. [Cheers.] We tmtnmllv think that this it* the ccntiv of things generally llaucrh tor) i I trust that it will l*e found to the centre of a kindling lire that will sweep through this whole region for tills purpose. This Is not u meeting, gentlemen, of soreheads, hut of sore heads. [Ap plause.] \V« have |>omlerod this matter among ourselves, at our firesides, mid In our own hearts, until we have come u* the conclusion, every one of us, I haveiio doubt, that the l*est thing vvvcnndo Is the thing we want to do In some small men-ure to right. I ventured to say to my people some time ago when talklngnbont this matter in general—for 1 talk both religion and politics when I have a mind to In my own pulpit [applause]— that. If the nest thing for the President of the United Plates was to catch rats, and It seemed to be as If that was going to he the order of Urn day. we had better have the suit of dog that would do it sure. Cheers.llfMr. Urlstow—lf you will excuse the figure, for 1 1 is an awkward one and not half ns good ns wlien I put It before—[laughter] has shown his <|imUty us I think no man In the I titled States bus shown his quality hi that direction, as the man to nose out and grip this great, ever growing, and overgrown corruption and break the back of it. We want such a man. Wo have met together to do our best toward electing such a man. And now, gentlemen, (tic meeting Is open lor you. (Applause. J MU. jn.IUA ItO*BNTIIAI. was the next speaker. lie said: On Wednesday niL'ht a few fi lends of this movement came to p-tlu-r at the otllce of Mr. Lamed and resolved to call till* meetlm? to-nlifht, and appointed a com mittee to prepare a plan of action. The Committee consists of Messrs. Pence, Horace White, Col, .lne!“<eii. Mason. and Cooper. I think It would lie proper for the Committee to make it* report. Tin* Chairman—You have the Secretary’* mlud. Shall the Committee he called on to report? There wan a uuanimouH report. *TIIR COMMITTER n UEI’OtiT. Mr. Pence—We did not meet for the purpose ol dictating, but everythin# must have a commence lin nl. A few of ns met who were In favor of thi> organization, and ft committee was appointed fin the purpose of declarlm; their views of the princi ples that should unlnialu lids Cluli.

Everybody recognizee the need of reform. The Mate of our politics has nevcrheen so bad us it Is now. Corrupt men control to a dangerous extent tin* working of onr political parties, utul oven the highest udminlstrstive functions of the Government are seriously nllected by the vices of the ai:e. A member <if Die Cabinet is now standing bin trial bv hnpt achiin nt at the bar uf (bu Semite. “Itim-s" of miserable. svlf-»rvklng. greedy politicians con trol inorr than one of our large cities.

Nor Is Hits all. The V'ederal otllre-hulders are trained to tvorlt for their political chiefs, and in every election.

Uut tho UrUtuvv Club goes one step further. We behove that there must be a leader In every movement: and wo believe that In Secretary llrls- U.w we have found the leader which this reform movement demands. Wo believe, at oil events, that the lime to decide on a leader lots come. We believe that the people should now Indicate their preference in order that their delegates ut Cincinnati may ratify It, and place in nomination those men whom tho sentiment of tho American nation has approved. Now, then, we believe that IlcojamlD Helm llrietuw is tho man to lead this great movement. We point with pride tu his loyally, so conspicuous during the War; to his courage, both physical and mural, exhibited on tho field of battle, and lu the no lets trying assault upon corruption and fraud as shown in Hut ‘• Whisky King 1" to his conduct as a citizen. • professional man, and an oltlcer of the Government, always free from seliUb alms* and marked by su unfaltering and etbdenl dls charge of puullc duly. Wo believe that ho has the sort of charucU-rwhlchwoueediii tins emer gency; that he is not only a man upon whom the deteriorating Iglluonces of political life hove had Duelled, who has passed clean and pure through lha manifold temptations of a nollticxil barcer; hut that bo is more than this and better than Ibis, Hut ho is determined to unko war upon tbu system which makes this political corruption possible, and U> turn aside from uodiibcalty, however formlda- Mr, to hesitate nl no task, however glgal until the work he thoroughly accomplished. 1(“J Wo believe that ho ha-* the reform flO p civil service thoroughly at heart. and he elected President, he would carry It Lhrt t.. \V« know that the best friends of reform infhnut lh«* land are in accord with him, onflfW niilin.

Thu motion was carried amld»i intid applause. CALI. FOR A MAHS-MBRTINU. Mr. Pence—We is-mvd a preparatory call and had It circulated. We have-UNI or 000 names already signed, and there Is no difficulty In securing good names In this city. The report/ are nearly nil In. and it Is the opinion of the Committee, subject to the revision of the meeting, that we should hold a grand mass-meeting In the City of Chicago not later than next Monday night. (Cries of ••Good.”) And to this end wo propose to clrcu* late tills cal) throughout (he city, and we have found (he machinery by which It can b** done. I believe wc can Ret ft,ooo names on our list by Monday night of persons who will de«lre the nomination of Mr. liristow for President. I be lieve wc can have surh a meeting next Monday mght as was never held In the city of Chicago. The hearts of thn people are In (Ills movement. If we unite shoulder to shoulder in this movement weianmuku its power felt throughout the great NurthwcU. {Applause.) APPOINTING A COMMITTED. John Lyle King—l move the President he direct ed to appoint a Committee of five to report on or ganisation. The Chairman—l would like to have some gen tlemen with mo in that, because I don't know whom to appoint really. If it was true, as old Mr. Weller und to say, tliat width was wis dom, I should he about as fit n fel low as then* is in the meeting. But I am outside: of politics very much while I trust I am inside the thing we wan to do to night. I wish you would suggest the gentlemen who shall h-dp to select this Committee. It w»“ suggested that the Secretaries assist the Chair. The result of the conference was the un p-dntment of the following Committee: John I.vie King. A. M. Pence, J. S. Cooper, Krnsl Trussing. Samuel Bliss. Mr. Reynolds made some well-received remarks, clo-lng with the announcement that he was so de cidedly in favor of this movement, mid the calling of the unir-s-mecllng, that h« would contribute t'.’oo to carry it out. (Applause. 1 The Chairman —Mr. Lamed is called for. 1 hope wo will have such a stirring speech from him as we had from the last gentleman— particularly the latter part of his speech. [Laughter.} TUB IK»N. E. C. LARKED came forward und said: I M.u Ciiaiipian: I hud not the please of hearing all the speech of the gentleman who Just preceded me. which I am requested to equal. But, Ifl in-urd rightly, it had a metallic ring at (he clo*e which Is certainly refreshing. (Laughter und applause.) 1 suppose tills meeting is called to orgnnl/c a Bristow Club. 1 have been from the start an ollginal. un compromising Bristow man. (Applause. | 1 went down to Springfield under the vain and delusive hope tint m that capacity I could serve the call. Ini when I gut down there I found that the North ‘tide seemed to he already taken possession of. and so fur from our having any representative ex* pie-«lon ol the people—the true sentiment and feelings of the body of the people in the division in which I live—we were railed upon to send to the Cincinnati Convention Mr. (;lmrlc« B. Funvell [Jeers], Mr. Palmer of the [Jeers], representing, ns I understand, the Whisky-King and rag-baby money. And last, imd certainly least. Aid. Schnffner— [cries of “Hear, hoar!"— Aid. Schnffncr, one of the Aldermen Isdonglng to the very tali of Mr. Colvin’s Administration. [Jeers.) It Is such men who are sent to represent the people of the North Side In the Presidential Convention. Now. I want to say this, simply to show how entirely the politicians are able to con trol things, through the manipulation of the or ganization of political matters, through the control of the primary meetings In the country towns and el«ewln re. when* the people have not falriv got educated up to the knowledge of the ne cessity of knowing how to run the machine. The people are full of true, and generous. nndnobU idea* about these thing*; they are filled by a de sire to hTiMi* orr this rotmrrrtos wM« disgraces uml shstm-s our natlitud life every where. The whole people art? burning with Indig nation against il. It it* a .feeling that I-In their •souls and hearts, and animates man’s speech ami takes possession of him. But they d<> not understand the nn'dilne and bow to work It. and hi when the primary nicotine routes round. Mr. Fanvell, Mr. rainier, and Mr. £chn(Tner. and those other gentlemen who do understand the workings of the machine, ure on hand, ami instead of ccttlni; «•< delegates men who represent the real sentiments of the people, we have a set of men who represent the office-holder* and hummers, and make politic* n tmdo. That Is the rea-on whvHu Convention at Hprinc'hdd.ln my view, so largely misrepresented the real feeling’s andjiympalhles of the people.

Not particu larly because they bine any personal affection for Mr. Bristow; not because they have any Interests that go in his direction, hut because in this Centen nial vear of our nation’s history, when 101) years have"rolled over om and every American would lie triad to feel proud of his country, we ure anxious for it reform In polities. We feel thot in material matters we made a grand and glorious promise ami achieved great tiling*. hut every patriotic heart is sad. owing to the disgrace that has come over the national life, and which threatens to defeat and destroy It. Thl* corruption has scaled the highest place-—lt ha* g-d Into the ITeshlent’s outride room llanghterl—to the Cabinet: It ha* got among the officers of every department of the Govern ment, and make* u man * heart slek within him. and we stop and askourvehes. What Is tu.hecome of tin* nation if these tilings go on? No«’. gentlemen, the Bepubltcan party Is to en ter upon a new campaign, and It Is of vital impor tance that it should succeed. We ail want It to succeed. What stand* in the way of Its success: nhat is the reason that Its success seem* doubtful? It I* because of these corruptions and fraud*, and the people charge upon the Republican p'irtv that they have taken place during Us nilmlnbtruil'm. There can be no denial of that: no man can deny that. But what is the answer to this charge? The nn*werof oil Republicans. Handing up like men. is to hut, “We admit all till*. Ji i* true, and we feci The indignation and the shame of it ns much and more than any other eltlrcns of any other party, und wo mean to cru*h II out ami destroy it. [Cheers. I Wo mean that no guilty man shall escape; we mean that every polity man shall he punished; we mean that there shall be no such frauds hereafter; we mean to reform this Government and set up a standard of loyalty to public trust und performance of public trust.” (bond cheers. I Is not that the wish and feeling of the great body of the Republic an* party; Is not that the feeling which goe* through every heart in this country, except Hn head* of ollU-o-holder*, the Whisky Ring, urn other hummers? (Cheers.) Now, if this Is om feeling und the (rue impulse of the Republican party, if we nominate a man who expresses and i the true representative of tliuau ideas, that is at answer to all these charges of tMtAI'DANU COIUUJITION. When nnr Democratic opponents point to those dealings oud fraudulent acts committed tty I.VpiihlUuim during it Republican administration, wi' can say. “True, true; that Is all tnn*. Dm we could not help that. We can he deceived like other men In regard to our appointees; hut we are going to change all that, and the fair nnd honest reason why yon may trust ns in our staleim title that wc mean to put a man In nomination for Pres ident who represents those ideas of reform and change. Not a man that Ittdongs to the old system —not a man that has run with the m;i rhino—not n man who lias been salts lied with things us they are ami made no complaint about them.—but one whose life, character, acts, and words, whose whole ca reer, Is one expression of unfaltering, unqiHndia hie, fearless warfare against nil this mass of cor ruption and fraud. ” The, the people will believe wn are in earnest nnd dial tho Itepnhlican parly does intend to enter upon a career of honesty unit uprightness. And. gentlemen, untessyuu do Hint, yon nmy use high-sounding words and large sen tences full of the most glittering generalities about honor. Integrity, fidelity, trust, mid nil that, but they will he Just us much thrown away as the blow ing of the wind. The people are.not going to rare about what either political party says onpnpcr.

Mr. Cnrlls most eloquently ui.d truly sai l in Die great convention held uttiyrn ruse that this year Urn candidate was to bu the platform. Why can wc trust Benjamin llrlstowas our stand ard-bearer?

(Applause.) It required « great deal of manliness and courage to do this; but bo not only had Die t'OUiIAOB AND VIDKMTY to advance and contend fur bis principles at home, but he look his life in Uls hand aud went out to light tho buttles of his country and to main tain those principle# at thu peril of hU life, (Cheers, j Alter he left tuo held and PRICE F.IVE CENTS. became United fitatci Attorney at lbs lima of lh« Kti-Klnx troubles he again showed bis courage and unfaltering determination to do his duty without fear or favor.

(Cheers.} The greatest peril tint threatens us Is the condi tion of our civil service, which Is one of the MOST FRIGHTFUL AItUJR* that prevails in our land, and one which, If not ar rested. must inevitably lead to the destruction ol this nation. Wc have an Immense patronage-nl olllcea of great value, which arc at the gift nr dl»* En*al of our politician* or members of Cougrecß. tich a power as that would debauch and destroy any government on th>-face of the earth. In the earlier days of this Republic, from Washington down to Jackson, the changes made in official life were less than one hundred. Ho long as a man did his doty faithfully nml efficiently no change was made. The system of change began after Jackson's administration, and what was the effect of It? Such on amount of plun der was to bo distributed that it became an object for the formation of rings to control the patronage, und those rings determined upon the men who should go to Congress. It Is their object and pur pose that the persons who go to Washington shall lx* such ns will make bargains with them and so let them control the arrangements for the distribution of unices in advance. The result is tliat not only do we get a poorer class of public servants than almost any other country, but we receive tho still greater Injury of having an Inferior c!a*s of statesmen at the Capital. Year after year there has been ft steady deterioration In tlie character and ability of tho men sent to Washington, until even in (he Sonata to-day theft; are very few men of first-class charac ter and honor. The tendency has been constantly downward*, and that tendency will continue until this evil Is corrected: nod 1 want a man an Presi dent of tho United Slates that I believe compre hends and would he glad to head a reform of lliif great abuse; I want n man who Is not only not afraid of the Whisky King, hut who is not afraid of the politicians. (Hirers.) When President Grant undertook to do an honorable tiling the other day and nominated our respected friend It. P. Derick son a* Collector of this port, the politicians stepped right In and said, “You cannot make ibis appoint* meol; by precedent and u-age we appoint the Col lector. and If you don’t tike our man you cannot liav« our support.” Well, the consequence was tliat Mr. DcrickHou stepped out nnd somebody else stepped In. In making that remark Ido not wish to Impugn Mr Ilnvcy, the present appointee. That system has got to be broken up. root and branch. Unless it Is done wc never can maintain free Republican Government, or the honor of our covnlry. I believe the people are determined to REFORM Tina CIVIL-KRRVICB evil. A new race of men have to spring up—men who love their country, und not its offices, und are willing to lalmr and toil for It without thinking of tho loaves nnd fishes: nnd when tliat class of men get into power they will go to the bottom of this matter, nnd bring about this much-need ed reform. Wc want a man in the Presi dential chair who reflects our views and wishes; lr those matters we must have the 010 und co-oiierntlon of the Executive. Therefore, gentlemen, from every point of view, both as i representative of reform, as a true nun, as a good man. a« a loyal and brave man that we can all he Herein, trust in, and follow, I go In heart and soul for the nomination of Mr. Bristow.
