General Hastings, the Republican can
didate for governor, an enthusiastic
welcome tonight. The various Repub

Minneapolis, Oct. 25. In his speech In
the Exposition building when 9,000 peo
ple crowded In to the auditorium and
ns many more were turned away,
Thomas B. Reed said: "Nothing but
business uncertainty produced the dis
aster. For the next two years there
are two fixed facts: First, the presi
dent and senate are Democratic, conse
quently if the house 1 Republican, as
we expect to make It. it will simply
educate the people. The other fixed
fuct Is that the senate bill Is a law.
Whatever good there may be in It will
be shown by trial.
"I am told you have not only the
Democracy to contend with, but also
with what are called Populists. In con
gress we did not notice much difference.
In all essentials these people ranged
themselves behind the Democratic
leaders In both hoUBe and senate. It
was thought we would have them in
Maine, and 16,000 was claimed for them.
They had 3,0oo. The fact is, the people
are eager for a national expression of
opinion, and will never be contented
to be bulked of their verdict. Other
states have tried this Populism, and if
you wish to be thought of In the next
two years as Kansas and Colorado
have been thought of, It would appear
to be a strange spectacle, and es
pecially after both these states will
have better sense this year."

New York, Oct. 25. General Harri
son today agreed to deliver one speech

whom I admire very much."
The ex-presldent stated that he had
promised to speak In Anderson, Ind.,

Columbus, O., Oct. 25. Reports from
every one of the eighty-eight counties
In the Btate are that each and every one
of them expects to surpass the Republi
can vote given last year. In 1892 tho
Republicans elected ten of the twenty
one congressman. Upon that basis
there are ten sure districts nnd eleven
Democratic and doubtful ones.

Parkersburg, W. Va., Oct. 25. The
special train bearing the Wilson party
reached here at 1 o'clock. At Friendly,
St. Mary's and Wllllamstown, Mr. Wil
son addressed good crowds. Senator
Camden made a cpeech at Friendly In
which he defined his position on the
tariff bill. He said he stood with Mr.
Wilson on the tariff question and had
voted In the senate for the reduction of
duties. He had been misrepresented In
the press and on the stump and had so
far not BDOKen in niB own defense.
The charge had been made that he
was a monopolist and not In sympathy
with the DetiDle. He pleaded nart nllv
guilty. He had brought $15,000,000 of
caoital Into the state which paid in
taxes nearly $100,000, and yet this .vast
capital had never paid the stockholders
one dollar of dividends.
An assemblage of 2,600 was addressed
this afternoon by Assistant Secretary
McAdoo and Mr. Wilson.- Mr. McAdoo
said he had no apologies to offer for
the Democratic administration; that it
had been faithful to Its pledges. The
American congress had accomplished
much in relieving the people under ad
verse circumstances.
Mr. Wilson delivered a tariff speech
lasting an hour, and at the conclusion
the special train continued Its Journey
to Clarksburg.

Indianapolis, Oct 25. There were
two political riots here last night. J.
Milton Turner, a negw Democratic ora
tor, was brought hare to address the
colored people of Indianapolis at the
Yellow bridge. He was greeted by a
large audience. His remarks, however,
gave offence, and a rush was made for
the stand. Turner was dragged down
and pounded In spite of the squad of
policemen present. Finally Turner was
dragged out iof the 'hall and fled
toward the cKy under guard of the po
lice. The angry negroes pursued him,
and came near killing him.
The other .riot occurred at Ainness
and Morris streets on the South Side,
where Allen Jennings, the Populist, in
vaded a Democratic community. The
Democrats listened to Jennings until
he had heaped all the contumely he
could think of on the head of Represen
tative Bynuin, when, at a signal, a
shower of eggs, stones and potatoes
was rained on him. He escaped with
little injury. A number of persons
were bruised by the stones, and one
little girl nearly killed, being badly cut
over the eye and on the top of the head.

gave out a statement as to the expecta
tions of the Republicans in the oomlng

facts which we have obtained," said
Mr. Apsley, "I feel fully warranted in
saying that the situation today Is more
promising than it was ten days ago,

Referring to the Populists, Mr. Aps
ley said he believed there would be
fewer of them In the Fifty-fourth con
gress than In the present. While he was
willing to be placed on record as stat
ing that the Republicans ; would or
ganize the next house without the aid
of the south, Mr. Apsley said he was
confident a great surprise was awaiting
the country from that section. "Look
out," he said, "for West Virginia, Vir

the speaker of the day, with the Inscrip

Governor McKinley was presented the
audience rose to Us feet and cheered
again and again. The governor pro
ceeded to refer to an inscription on one
of the banners carried In the procession
that escorted him to the hall and which
read: "Shingles have been made free,
but our mills have shut down," and was
emphasizing his argument that a hun

not earn a living at something else.

Put them at raising wheat." ine
youth proceeded to Bay that his propo
sition was that the natural resources of

we could find a market abroad for the
resources of this development. Gover
nor McKinley then went on to make

has been unfortunate in his argu
ment," he said. "There 1b nothing we
get abroad that we cannot produce
ourselves, thus employing labor and
putting wages In circulation."

By the United Press.
New York, Oct. 25. A crank, and one
of note, called this morning at the resi
dence of Dr. Joseph D. Bryant, No. 54
West Thirty-sixth street, where Presi
dent Cleveland Is stopping, and de
manded to see the president. The man's
name Is Richard, Bordeler, and his
home Is given as No. 414 West Fifty
seventh street. Gordeler is the same
crank who some years ago wrote to
Emperor William, of Germany, chal
lenging him to a duel. Gordeler went
up to Dr. Bryant's house about 9 o'clock.
He rang the bell violently, and de
manded to see the president. The but
ler told him quietly but firmly that the
president could not be seen.
"But It Is a business of extreme na
tional Importance," Insisted the crank.
This brought Dr. Bryant to the door.
The doctor reasoned with the crank and
told him that it was impossible to sec
the president at that hour. Gordeiier
was finally argued Into going away.
Gordeler said that he had been trying
to see the president for two years in
order to wipe away the stain which had
been put upon him hy Incarceration in
a lunatic asylum in Germany. He said
he had challenged Emperor William to
a duel, but that the latter was a coward
and had him put In an asylum.

An Lrrutla Preacher Who Formerly Be

Creating llnvoo by Strange Doc

By the United Press.
Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 25.
The preaching of the Rev. Dr. W. J.
McCrory. pastor of the Free Presby
terian church of Rochester, Pa., has cre
ated a sensation throughout the Beaver
valley. His recent discourses, urging
the application of the Biblical laws
concerning unequal marriages has
caused trouble in several homes and
may lead to divorce proceedings. The
havoc has been accomplished by the
application of Mr. McCrory's favorite
idea of "sanctlflcatlon on earth" to the
marital vows.
Two years ago Dr. McCrory with
drew from the Presbyterian church be
cause of the refusal of the Presbytery
to recognize his doctrine of sanctlflca
tlon. He buses his statements on a portion
of the verse of the sixth chapter of the
Second Epistle to the Corinthians,
which reads: "Be ye not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers, fur
what fellowship hath righteousness i
with unrighteousness, and what com- I
munion hath light with darkness?" I
McCrory's Peculiar Reasoning.
On this text the divine descanted
very forcibly and fervently. Following
this base of reasoning he argued that
where a Christian and ungodly one
were so yoked together a great sin waa
committed and was repeated with
everyexerclse of the prerogatives of the
bond. These utterances created no
small sensation among Dr. McCrory's
followers, who are implicit believers In
the doctrine he preaches, and the new
doctrine on intermarriages was liter
ally accepted.
A dozen or more engagements be
tween young people have been uncere
moniously severed, while In at least
three Instances women who have been
for some time married and are mothers
of families, have also accepted the doc
trine. The new doctrine has taken firm hold
among the populous valley at the Junc
tion of the Beaver and Ohio. The con
sequences are, however, certain to
prove disastrous In a number of fami
