Gov. McKinley Made Eleven Speeches
to Sixty Thousand Persons.

By the United Press.
Philadelphia, Oct. 2".
At the rate of more than a mile a
minute Governor McKinley was hustled
acros9 the etate of New Jersey to his
big political meeting here lust night.
Including the meetings In this city lust
night, Governor McKlnley made eleven
speeches during the day, and was
greeted by an aggregate of probably
tio.000 persons. At 11 o'clock he left for
Illinois, where he Is booked for fifteen
meetings on Monday.
The governor was greeted with pro
longed cheers when, at 7.50 o'clock, he
was Introduced at the big meeting by
John Stewert, president of the Phila
delphia Workingmen's Protective Tar
iff league, and before he had spoken a
dozen words the applause broke out
afresh. Governor McKlnley talked on
national Issues. He humorously re
ferred to the recent tariff "trouble be
twen the house and the senate and the
president," and dwelt at some length
upon the "arduous" passaKe of the bill
bearing the name of Mr. Wilson. "Penn
sylvania, with all her great industries,"
the governor continued, "had no voice
In the formation of this measure."
President Cleveland was characterized
as "a man of peace In war, and a man
of war In peuce." Then the governor
directly asked his hearers if they
thought the Wilson tariff law was as
good for this country as the law of
1SH0. A chorus of noes came back with
"Do we want it?" was the next ques
tion. "Not on your life." was the reply of
several of the auditors.
"Well, vote that way on Nov. C," was
the governor's admonition.
Democracy's W ork.
The speaker drew a word picture of
the "present state of Industrial affairs,"
and asked now many men in Philadel
phia are now receiving the wages that
they got In 1S92.
"Not 1." "Not I," were the answers
from different parts of the auditorium.
"How many men are unemployed
now who were employed In IhUi'.'" the
governor then asked.
"Thousands are out or work , was
the answer, especially from the gal
leries. One man volunteered the In
formation that he was ."working on
half time," and to this remark the gov
ernor said:
"Half time only, but then that Is
better than no time."
The speaker referred to the fact that
"Jvo'rRmeu are not agitating the "eight
hour question" nowadays because what
'the workmen now want Is . "longer
hours of employment.
Governor McKlnley admitted that
there were some mistakes in the 1890
tariff bill. "No measure having 3,600
Items on Its list can be framed without
havlngany mistakes, the sneaker said.
"but what mistakes there were, were
In favor of the American people. He
said the Wilson bill has thus far been
found to have 550 mistakes, and '"all
of them are against the American peo
pie." ,
The governor referred to the
Buchanan administration as one of
"loans and detlclts," and compared it
to the present administration, adding
that "history only repeats itself." In
conclusion he urged the Republicans to
try to secure control of the next houso
of representatives. The governor de
clared that six Republicans would, in
the next congress, represent Ohio,
where as many Democrats now "mis
represented it." The governor finished
at 8.55 o'clock, and was then driven to
the Grand Opera house, two miles
away. From there he went direct to
Ids car, which was attached to the 10.25
express for the west on the Pennsyl
vania road. General Hustings ad
dressed the Grand Opera house meet
ing before Governor McKlnley'B ar
rival, and was then driven to the Acad
emy of Music and addressed the large
audience there.
Governor McKlnley got from Syra
cuse to Philadelphia without entering
New York city. Governor McKlnley, it
Is jald, would like to speak in New

An "Ami" Element Is .Making Things

.Modified the Wilson Bill.
By the United Press.
Kaston, Md., Oct. 28 Senator Gib
son did not preside over the Democratlo
muss meeting In Music Hall yesterday.
As United States senator he would na
turally be considered the biggest man
In his party at his own home. Yet he
was not even given a seat on the plat
form in front of the people he was sent
to Washington to represent. The cen
tral committee was plainly told sev
eral days ago by a member of the anti
Gibson Democrats that if he should be
made the chairman of the meeting that
at least one hundred prominent Demo
crats would leave the hall in a body.
Their animosity toward the senator is
based on that gentleman's course in the
senate regarding the tariff, bill.
It is believed that the meeting has
very much widened the breach In the
Talbot county Democracy.
He Tells Why the Ohio Governor Cunie to
New York.
By the United Press.
Watertown, Oct. 28. Senator Hill
spoke here Inst night to a large and en
thusiastic audience. Referring to Gov
ernor McKinley's recent tour of the Em
pire state, the senator said:
I welcome Mr. McKlnley here, as a (lis
tlnguiaheu Republican and as the gover
nor of the state of Ohio. It may be possi
ble that he has come into this state to
pay on an old grudge he owes me. I recol
lect that after he passed his tariff bill he
stoou ro r a re-election to congress from
his Ohio district. 1 concluded that I would
t like a little journey into the state of Ohio,
and I went out to hi-lp the Democracy 6t
his district express their opinion of him.
You probably all recollect that Mr. Mc
Klnley was not returned to congress that
year. Turn about is fair play. He need
not imagine I have any feeling on account
ol his presence here.
The real difficulty with Mr. McKlnley is
he wants this country to be ruiaed, and
the country refuses to be, and prosperous
times have been returning for many
weeks past. It might aid Mr. McKinley's
tariff hobby should you turn over this
state to the Republicans, but I tell you he
is opposed to the best Interests of every
manufacturer and every citizen in the
country. He does not want the
country to succeed under a Democratic
tariff, but it will. The commercial trav
elers, and there are no better Judges, re
port that business Is picking up all over
the country.
Senator Hill then referred to the re
peal of the Sherman silver law und the
federal elections law, and charged that
ast year's panic wos due to vicious
Republican legislation. In closing he
referred to his acceptance of the nomi
nation and said he was going to win.
When he finished he received a burst of
applause, the audience standing on their
feet and waving their hats in tne air.
Tariff Reductions Seems to Hove Affected

Milwaukee, Oct. 28. The cargo of
f.00,000 pounds of Welsh tin reported to
be on the way from Baltimore to this
city Is consigned to the Kieckhefer
company. Ferdinand Kieckhefer, speak-
liyr of the matter, said:
"We do not like to purchase tin
abroad, as the grade Is Inferior to what
wus made In this country, but we could
not help ourselves. All American mills
have shut down. The tariff has been
reduced until the manufacturers could
not stand the competition, and they had
to close or go Into bankruptcy. The
importation of plate has largely in
creased, as a matter of course. All the

Georgia Legislature Votes Down a Resolu

By the United Press.
Atlanta. Oct. 28. A motion to take
iin a resolution in the houBe of repre
sentatives of the Georgia legislature
declaring It to be the sense of the legis
lature that congress Bhould enact a
law for the free and unlimited coinage
of silver and condemning the repre'
sentatlves in congress who voted for

Only twenty-three Democrats voted

Is Sorry Cleveland Didn't Register and
Then Vote for Morton.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
New York, Oct. 28, A rousing meet
ing was held in Cooper union last night,
in : defence of the proposed constltu
tlonal amendments. Joseph H. Choate
was the chief speaker. Mr. Choate has
made a reputation for saying unex
pected things on all public occasions,
and he bore out his reputation last night
by speaking a few words in praise of
Grover Cleveland.
The only fault that he had to find with
Mr. Cleveland was that he left New
York, without registering, and so was
debarred from casting a vote for Levi
P. Morton.
He Is Try ing to Work One on the Plea of
. . Grover Snub.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
New York, Oct. 28. There Is no
doubt that the Democratic leaders are
angry at Mr. Cleveland for his failure
to write a letter Indorsing the stats
ticket. The majority of the campaign
managers feel that the president has
given Mr. Hill a, serious stub by refus
ing to call on his followers In New
York to support the ticket. They also
claim that Mr. Cleveland's neglect to
register has set the rank and tile of the
party a bad example and will cost
many votes.
The one hope is that the president's
action has placed Senator Hill in the
light of a martyr, and will secure even
harder work for him on the part of the
voters in the ranks, who otherwise
might not evince the same interest.

Now York, Oct. 28.
A special coble to the Sun from Ber
lin suys: The dramatic collapse of the
ministry hus been followed by such a
scurrying to and fro as the capital has
not seen before since Bismarck fell.
Every train brings to the city poli
ticians whose parties are affected most
vitally by the change or whose Influ
ence is needed In the reconstruction of
the government. Several federal en
voys k-ft town yesterday morning un
der the impression that Thursday's con
ference had smoothed away all threat
ening difficulties, but they are return
ing now. All are astounded and per
plexed by the sudden dismissal of the
chancellor, for to most officials behind
the scenes it came as unexpectedly as
to the public at large.
Several facts proving the suddenness
of the crisis have come to light today.
It has been ascertained that the em
peror on Thursday evening congratu
lated Count von Caprlvi upon his suc
cess In obtaining for his support a ma
jority of the federal conference. In
the same audience the tnperor ap
proved of the chancellor s policy of
mild repression of the Socialists. The
report that on Oct. 23 Caprivl already
thought of resigning was true only to
this extent: He intimated to the em
peror on that day that he would resign
in case he Bhould not get a majority of
the federal envoys to support him In
the conference. The report that the
emperor censured Caprlvi for an article
which the Kolnsehe Zcltung launched
against the Prussian government is
without foundation and was discredit
ed from the first in official circles,
where it was known that, upon his re
turn from Lieberburg, the emperor
greeted the chancellor most cordially.
When the whole story shall become
known it probably will be shown that
Caprlvi insisted upon resigning against
the emperor's will. He is known to
have expressed his unwillingness to
present Dr. Mliiuel's new financial pro
posals In the relchstag and to have
told the emperor, that, with another
chancellor, Mlquel would have freer
hand to accede to the demands of the
Federal states. The emperor heard
impatiently this suggestion to reform
his cublnet. He eventually offered to
dismiss Count Botho zu Kulenburg, the
Prussian premier and the chancellor's
most vigorous opponent, but Cuprivi
still requested thut he be allowed to
retire. -.-.. -
Caprlvl'K Successor.
Berlin, Oct. 28. Prince Von Hohen-lohe-Schllllngfurst,
governor of Alsace
Lorraine, acompnuled by Herr Von
Kocller, under secretary of the Interior
for Alsace-Lorraine, arrived at Pots
dam from Strasburg Saturday morn
ing. The prince was met at the rail
road station by the emperor, and the
two drove to the new palace In an open
carriage. In a second carriage was
Herr Von Koeller and Lieutenant Col
onel Von Moltke, of the emperor's stuff.
At the palace the kaiser and Prince
Hohenlohe had a conference in regard
to the ministerial situation.
Prince Von Hohenlohe-Schlllingfurst,
as the result of his conference with the
emperor at Potsdam, has accepted the
appointment of chunccllor, to succeed
General Von Caprivl, and also the port
folio of president of the Prusian council
of ministers, vacated by the resignation
of Count Botho zu Eulenburg. The
emperor's acceptance of Count Kulen
burg' s resignation both as Prussian
premier and minister of the Interior is
officially confirmed.
' Frelherr Marschul Von Biebersteln,
secretary of state for foreign offal in,
hus resigned, and Dr. Von Roettleher,
secretary of the Interior, Is about to
follow. Marschul is cordially hated by
the high-tariff Conservatives because
he ably supported Cuprivi in the strug
gle to puss the Russian reciprocity
treaty. Boettlcher Is most unpopular
among the Bismarckian Conservatives,
because the old chancellor has de
nounced him repeatedly for deceit and
intrigue. The first impression produced
by these reports is that there is to be a
clean sweep of ministers distasteful to
the Conservatives.

track of seven miles on the Lehigh Val
ley cut-off, and at a point one mile from
Fatrview, In the wilds of Wllkes-Barre
mountain, a Hungarian camp was lO'
cated, which was presided over by Mike
Urklowitz and wife. The camp con
sisted of a rough building thirty feet

Sometime during the night a party
of desperadoes secured a battery and

A tool chest standing nearby was
broken open, from which were taken a
number of highly charged dynamite
sticks of Pittsburg make, which were
distributed beneath the building which
contained sixty Hungarians. The cir

work to turn on the battery setting oft
the dynamite. However, In the haste
with which the miscreants worked they
made a faulty connection at the bat
tery, and probably not more than two
Of the dynamite sticks went off.
Flunk Novako who was one of the
narty playing cards on the first floor,
was instantly killed, both legs being
blown off at the knee. The building
totally collapsed and was shivered into
slivers, excepting one-half of the roof,
which sank in, partially covering the
debris. .
The two men with Frank Novako at
the table were scarcely Injured at all,
while the others killed and Injured met
their fate from the collapse of the
building. The force of the explosion
was so great that the earth was torn
up about the camp and the effects in
the line of bggage, cooking utensils,
etc., were scattered In every direction.
Huns Prepare to Leave.
Ad Is the custom of the Huns, those
who were Injured at day break com
menced the collection of their shuttered
goods und chattels and by noon a large
number of the men had prepared to
take their departure, having no con
cern and paying no attention to their
dead and injured countrymen.
The Lehigh Valley Railroad company
brought out a wrecking force and train
and Immediately went to the scene of
the explosion. Upon arrival the in
jured men were cared for by physicians
and placed on the train and brought to
the hospital here and the bodies of the
dead were also brought here and pre
pared ror burial.
The detectives, upon looking up the
evidence, arrested Mike Urklowitz, the
boarding boss, as a wltnass, and they
are under the belief that he can give
evidence that may lead to the detection
of the men who committed the outrage.
The foul deed occurred but a short dis
tance from the site of the memorable
murder by "Red Nosed Mike" and his
