He Spins Through the Empire State
ut a Phenomenal Speed.
Sonic of the Telling Points That lie Mado
Along the Way Hustings and Sln

Political Nts.
By the United Press.
Buffalo, Oct. IC.
Governor McKlnley wus whirled
through tho state of New York today at
the rate of seventy miles an hour. In
order to Ret him to all the places at
which lie was booked to make speeches
a special train was made up, which Hew
over the tracks of the New York Cen
tral ruilroad as fast as Hteam could pro
pel It. The llrst stop out of Buffalo
wus at Uatavla, where Governor Me
Klnley spoke from a platform erected
in front of the court house.
At Rochester there was a band and n
procession and an audience of several
thousand assentbled in the public
square. The demonstration at Roches
ter was very noisy, the cheers of the
crowd being punctuated with explo
sions of bombs, and the mule to the
speaking stand was marked by an
eluboralc- display of Hugs and buntliiK
hung from the buildings. Caiindnigun
was reached at ItU'll, where the urrlval
of the train was heralded by the dis
charge of cannon mid ringing of the
church bells. The governor took occa
sion at this place to respond to a speech
made by Vice President Stevenson. He
said: 1
Mckinley Answers Adlal.
"Vice-President Stevenson, In Mb
speech nt .Brooklyn last night, alluded
to the great prosperity of the country
enjoyed during President Cleveland's
llrst administration, and said that ex
isting distress was caused solely by the
tariff law of 1890 and other Republican
legislation. Xo intelligent people can
be so deceived. Every man who hears
me will remember that during the
whole of President Cleveland's first
term the Republican party had con
trols the senate of the ITnited States
and Hint Mr. Cleveland did nothing
more than execute Republican law and
Republican purpose. The only thing
Mr. Stevenson was right about was
that great promises had been made by
the Democratic platform nnd In the
speeches of the campaign of iS!i2. lie
talks about the bitter light congress
made against monopolies and trusts.
Mr. Wilson answers him by declaring
that the most Igantir trust In our his
tory held congress by the throat."
There was a howling mob of enthusi
asts at Geneva. Here, referring to the
ittutWc j-tmmik imm wnn Interrupted
him at Dunkirk, yostertluv, Governor
McKlnley said: "The young man
wanted our idle mechanics to go to rais
ing wheat, but I take it that what the
farmers of this country want is not
more wheat raisers, but more wheat
eaters." And he characterized the
Democratic slogan of "opening the
markets of the world" by observing,
sarcastically, that "the foreign market
is a great free trade shadow dance,
w'le" 'ou set to it there is nothing in
Ills Apt Aphorism.
An uproarious congregation was
found at Seneca Falls, crackling the
fallen leaves and making the barren
limbs of the trees tremble with their
shouts when the great protectionist
dismounted fron his car. There were
certainly not less than 4,000 voters in
the crowd. Vslng a Llncolnesquo
phrase, McKlnley said: "For the thirty
years we lived under Republican pro
tective policy, the meal tub of govern
ment was always full, and the meal
tub of tthe people was never empty.
This is the Imperishable fact of his
tory, which can never be blotted out."
Later he expressed a protection maxim
by saying "Every time you make It
easier for the foreign product to come
Into this market you make It harder for
the American product to stay In this

Pittsburg, Oct. 2G.-The Times prints
a letter from the president of the Phila
delphia Typographical union, No
s challenging the statement of William
M. Slngerly that he "never reduced
wages und "defied any record or anv
man to state that in a single Instance
he has reduced the wages of his em

and charges that on March 7. of this very
year, he reduced the wages of the op
erators working the typesetting ma
chines In the composing room of the
Record 2 cents per 1,000 ems maklngn re
duction, nccordlng to the skill of the
operator, of from 50 cents to 70 cents
per day. Previous to that date the
price paid for machine composition was
16 cents for night work mid 1214 for day
work. Now he is paying 14 cents for
night work and 12 for day work, the
lowest rate of wages paid for machine
composition In any large city of this
country. Philadelphia union will give
from $1,000 to $5,000 to any charity that
Mr. Slngerly may name If It cannot
prove the proof of this assertion."

Pours Hot Argument Into the Ears of His
Philadelphia Hearers.
By the United Tress.
Philadelphia, Oct. 20. General Hant
lijgs opened his campaign in Philadel
phia tonight with four speeches nt as
many different meetings in the southern
part of the city. The meetings were till
crowded and the protection doctrine as
expounded by General Hastings met
with the hearty approval of the audi
ences. General Hustings' speches weje
all in the same line. He contrasted the
policies of the two parties and advo
cate protection. In effect lie said:
The time for argument is almost past.
No citizen will misconceive the effect of
his vote. The McKlnley law did not In
jure a single industry. This fact is con
ceded on all sides. With the advent of
free trade there came simultaneously
business depression, lack of confidence,
hesitation and doubt; these conditions
have continued. The parly In power
have been tinkering at these conditions
for eighteen months and the tinkering
has not been a success. This fact brings
the question home to every man, no mat
ter what his calling or occupation. It is,
therefore, a business question to be set
tled on business principles and not on
The Republican party, In Its infnncv,

Greensburg, Pa., Oct. 26. In the
course of his speech here today Mr.

largest mine owner there told me that he
was shipping 2,000 tons a day, wus behind

one complaint; they are short of cars.
The Pennsylvania railroad und the Ral

A Party of Eskimos Without Food Resort
to Cannlbuliym-The Last of tho Lot
Evidently Died of Starvation After
Raving Eutcn Their Comrades.
By the United Press.
Dundee, Oct. 26.
Whaling vessels belonging to the
Dundee fleet which have returned hers
bring a gruesome story from the
far north. At the beginning of
August the whalers Aurora. Buluena
and Esquimaux were In Prince Re
gent's Inlet, searching for white whales.
They steamed into Elvln Bay and a
party from the Buluena landed and pro
ceeded in shore. They "had not
gone far when they came upon a ghastly
ring of corpses, the remains of Eskimos
who had evidently died of starvation.
The evidence pointed to its having been
a oase of survival of the fittest. Some of
the bodies bore no trace of the tale told
by the others. On the other hand,
clean-picked human bones and partially
devoured bodies revealed a story of can
nibalism. One corpse had been be
headed, and tho head waa found thirty
yards away from the trunk at a place
where someone had evidently made a
meal upon the ilesh and brain.
It is supposed that the party, while
travelling, found their progcess checked
by the sudden setting in of winter.
What few provisions they had were
soon exhausted, and then starvation
staved them in tho face. One by one
they succumbed to the pangs of hunger
and finally the stronger, in a futile at
tempt to save their own lives were
driven to ea.t the others.
