CHEEKED AT EVERY POINT Sonic of the Telling Points That lie Mado Along the Way Hustings and Sln gerly on the Stump-Other 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 market." yilALLI-MiKS SIXGEKLY. President of Philadelphia Typographical I n Ion Raises an Issue. Special to the Scmnton Tribune. 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 ployes." The letter says: "Philadelphia Tvpo graphical union uccepts the challenge 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." Ki:i:i AMON(i HAAVKEYES.

Philadelphia, Oct. 26.-Davld Martin, chairman of the executive committee of the Republican city campaign commit tee, Bays, apropos of charges of false registration: "Our committee, la in favor of striking from the lists the nume of every person who has removed or who has died or which may be Im properly on the list. If the Democratic city committee Is agreeable, we are willing to appoint one member of our committee In each division and have them appoint one of their men. these two to make a thorough canvass of their respective divisions and make af fidavit a to the coruectnesss of their work. Then we can go Into court and present these lists. "Wa have no object in padding the lists, as we expect a majority so big that we are not Interested in permitting fictitious names to remain on them, If any are there, I will say this, that we have made a complete canvass of every division in the city within the past ten days, and have the name of every Re publican and every Democrat who is entitled to vote. This canvass has also developed the fact that there have been between 15,000 and 20,000 removals and deaths since the assessment was made." HASTINGS TALKS SENSE. 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 theory. The Republican party, In Its infnncv, Willi the. aid of good men of all parlies, was able to restore the Union. In Its youth it wus wise enough lo give the country an unprecedented era of prosper ity. In Its manhood it will be able to re store Ihul prosperity lost through misap prehension and misrepresentation. The Hepubliean party Is not a fleeting shallow. It Is not a curiosity shop of odd theories. It is the party of today and tomorrow. It Is the party of the great war. It Is the party of reconstruction. It is the party of sound currency und nullomd honor. SINGERLY HAS HIS SAY. Tells the People of Urccnshurg That They Are Kcally Prosperous. By the United Press. Greensburg, Pa., Oct. 26. In the course of his speech here today Mr. Slngerly said: Upon this bright October morning with the reminiscences of the past, with the Democracy of Ihe present around us and la front of us. cheering us and encourag ing us on in oar good work, 1 see no rea soi. why Westmoreland county shall not come back to her old 2,inio Democratic mujority. We are not here preaching cal amity; we are not here prophesying evil; we arc not here running down the indus tries of your commomwenlth; we are not here regretting the past, but we are here with great hopes for the future because of the Wilson bill. From the time that we started on Mon day morning down to this hour, we have met nothing but active iudustrv, good hiislness. plenty of work, uml lio complaint. They tolrt me at Connellsvllle, yesterday afternoon, that September was the greatest coke producing month in the history of that place. That It had shipped over 2,tmU enrs of coke during the month; that the average was some zi or mi cars beyond any average during any boom In their lives; that they were unable to till their orders, and that they were exporting to Canada. They told mo at deal-Held that they were shipping 10,0m) tons' of coal a day and were unable to sup ply their orders. At Johnsouburg the largest mine owner there told me that he was shipping 2,000 tons a day, wus behind with his orders and was buying coal to lill them. At Pittsburg they have but one complaint; they are short of cars. The Pennsylvania railroad und the Ral tlniore and Ohio railroad have not cars enough to supply their customers. Now If this Is the result of two months of the Wilson bill, I ask you what it will be before It is a year old. 1 am not here to Inflame your passions. I am not here preaching fallacies or sophistries, or to get you to my way of thinking. I ask you, men of Greensburg, you men In business; you, employers; you, working men, to stop to think what this prosperity means. Fully 15.000 people shouted n welcome at Johnstown. All along the line of march all buildings were decorated, red lights and fireworks filled the air continually. At 8 o'clock the large opera house was packed, floor, gulleries and stuge, and standing room was a. a premium. When Governor Pattlson appeared on the stage, his reception by the vast assemblage was spontane ous. His nddress was In the nature of an arraignment of twenty-live years of Republican administration In Penn sylvania and a defense of the Dem ocratic administration. . HERE'S A CASE IN POINT.

Congress Would be Wasting Time Only to Invito Cleveland's Veto. By the United Tress. Memphis, Oct. 26. Senator Harris, of Tennessee, does not think there will be any silver legislation at the next ses sion of congress, in an interview he said: "When President Cleveland vetoed the seigniorage bill, which was noth ing compared to the ideas of those who favor the use of sliver In large quanti ties, he plainly showed that he would defeat any bill looking to the use of sil ver as currency.I don't believe congress will waste any time preparing a bill for the president to veto."

The tlrm says: "Heretofore we were unable to compete with other markets, but the recent change of the tariff luw remedies this, und we will be pleased to secure some of your trade." WHO IS THE LIAR? Is It Hon. M. T. Ituike of 1803 or Is It Hon M. T. Burko of 1801 Special to tho Scranton Tribune. Carbondale, Oct. .26. Tonight's Lead er prints a card from P. S. Joslin, E. J.

IX HEARING 0E RESCUE PARTY After Fifteen Hours of Hard Labor the Hcscucrsare Rewarded by Answering Hounds Withln-Tlic Deliverance to lie Affected in a l ew Hours. By the United Press. Iroliwood, Mich. Oct. 20. What may prove to bo the worst ac cident in the history of the Menominee Range occurred on the fourth level of Shaft No. 1 at the Powablo mine at S o'clock yesterday. One man is known to have been killed, and eleven others are entombed, and their fate will not be known for twelve hours. The accident was caused by the sand stone capping, which overhung the room, coming away with sutlicleiit force to crush the timbers without any warning. The dead man is Frank Gaborora. The entombed, so far as their names are obtainable, are John Farrel, Peter Hellberger, William Plckard and Will iam ThoniuB. Last night Superintendent Drown ex pressed himself as being confident that all the entombed men would be taken out alive. This will depend very much on whether the air is pure and suffi cient to keep them alive. At 6 o'clock this evening the rescuers had dug to within eight feet of the men and some of them at least are still alive, as a distinct tapping can be heard on a pipe leading to where the men are entombed. Some of them will be alive, but the rescue can hardly be effected before daylight tomorrow. DRAMATIC SCENE IX COl'BT.

Dunn St Co. l ooks llrighter Thun It Has for .Many a Hay. By the United Press. New York, Oct. 26.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s. weekly review of trade says: Kngrossing political excitement in mafly nf the states causes a natural slackening in some kinds of business. But on the whole business indications are rather more favorable than they 'were a week ago. Gold exports have ; ceased, quite a number of mills have gone Into operation and the demand for products, If not equal to that of prosperous years, is better than it has been most of the time this year. The prices of farm products do not Im prove. Tho stock market has been remark ably stagnant and the average of rail road stocks has declined 33 per share, while trust stocks have advanced 31 cents per share. Pending suits re garding the trusts have little Influence. Railroad earnings In October have been 3.X6 per cent, less than last year; H 66 per cent, less in van, but details are given showliiL' thut t-lm i i toil (nm no r. irl with last year Is due to the enormous passenger huninesa near the end of the World's fair. In iron and steel tho west shows weakness, while eastern markets show more encouragement. Nothing of con sequence Is doing in rails, the deliver ies for the year to Oct. 1 being onlv 510.000 tons, much below ordinary re quirements for renewals alone. The best feuture Is that the heavy Increase in the output of pig does not yet seem to overload the market, und there are rather less signs of pressure to sell than of late. It is Btill, as It has been for some months, a very encouraging fact that the volume of commercial failures Is small. Reports for the three weeks of October cover liabilities of onlv .".,6;',!i, 741, of which $2.6211,671 were of manufac turing snd $2"7,ri67 of trading con cerns. The failures for the week were 231 in the United States, against 320 last year, and 02 in Canada against 44 Inst year. EXAMINE YOUR FIVES. A Spurious Chvomo of General Pap Thomas Is Afloat.
