William McKlnley Is a living exem
plification of the fact that the most in
teresting period of a man's career is
not necessarily that portion whet em
he enjoys the greatest degree of Na
tional prominence, or, more properly
speaking, during which his efforts are
directed to accomplishments which
have a significance throughout the
country at large. This illustration of
the point In question Is furnished more
particularly by Mr. McKlnley's admin
istration of affairs throughout the four
years during which he derved as gov
ernor of Ohio. True, this monopoliza
tion of his attention by interests neces
sarily of a local nature did not lessen
the number nor the loyalty of his friends
In all parts of the country and bis mar
velous camnolgn tour in 1894 may well
be regarded as an achievement wfthout
a parallel In the history of the nation;
but fur all that It la to personal popu
larity and his position as the recognised
exponent of a great theory that must
be attributed the universal homage re
ceived on that triumphal transconti
nental trlii and not to any of his official
acts while the chief executive of tlte
The sentiment which resulted in the
nomination of William McKlnley for
governor was engendered Immediately
upon the announcement of the result of
the election of 1890, when after four
teen years' continuous servloe In con
gress the Ohio statesman was defeats 1
for re-election. .Three times the Demo
cratic legislature "gerrymandered" the
state to accomplish this, but even when
finally successful the victory must have
been an unsatisfactory one, for Mc
Klnley made a most vigorous fight and
although his opponent was most popu
lar cut down the Democratic majority
from 2,900 to S02.
NAMED FOP. GOVEP.XOR.
The unanimity of sentiment in favor
of Mr. McKlnley made his nomination
a foregone conclusion and the universal
popularity of the nominee seemed to
presage his election quite as strongly.
Still not for a. moment did he lessen
the vigor of his canvass and In the In
terval between his nomination and elec
tion the governor visited 1 of the i'i
counties In the state and made 130
speeches. The campaign was ap.med at
Nilts, Trumbull county, Mr. McKln
ley's birthplace, a fact which calls to
mind his remarkable loyalty to old
friends In the matter of political speech
es. This Is even more strikingly Illus
trated by the ex-governor's Invariable
practice of closing every campaign
with a meeting at his home city of Can
ton. In all the 25 years of hi public
life,' regardless of for what office he
was a candidate, he has made It a rule
to make an address, on the evening be
fore election, to his old friends and
The Republican State convention held
In 1893 renominated Gov. McKlnley by
acclamation and after a campaign none
the less active than Its predecessor he
was elected by a plurality of 80,9i5, up
to that time the most phenomenal in
the history of the state.
The policy which Oov. McKlnley pur
sued during bis four years of occupancy
of the gubernatorial chair was well out
lined when in his inaugural address he
said: "I approach, the administration
of the office with which I have been
clothed by the people, deeply sensible
of Us responsibilities, and resolved to
discharge Its duties to the best of my
ability. It la my desire to co-operate
with you in every endeavor to secure a
wise, economical and honorable ad
ministration, and, so far as can be
done, the improvement and elevation of
the public service."
From the day of his Inauguration
Gov. McKlnley took the greatest inter
est In the management of the public
benevolent Institutions of the state, and
he made a study of means for their bet
terment, a work In which he early se
cured the confidence and co-operation
of his official and legislative colleagues.
His policy was one of economy, yet he
urged the preservation and Improve
ment of the canals of the state, and he
was decidedly in favor of some form of
appropriation for the betterment of
AN HONEST REFORMER.
He repeatedly urged upon the legis
lature the need of remedial measures
for the evils of the system of taxation
in vogue In the state of Ohio and stud
led the problems of municipal govern
ment with a similar hope of the discov
ery of some opportunity for improve
ment. To seemingly useless local or
special legislation Mr. McKlnley re
peatedly expressed himself as unequiv
ocally opposed and for any disposition
to authorize an Increase of local In
debtedness apparently without recur
rence of adequate benefit he also mani
fested little sympathy.
In view of Mr. McKlnley's well
known solicitude for the welfare of the
working classes, his sympathy with the
eight-hour movement and his advocacy
of the settlement of labor troubles by
arbitral measures. It was only natural
that he should from the time he entered
office give considerable attention to In
dustrial questions. The first evidence
of this came in the form of recommen
dations, for legislation for the protec
tion of worklngmen In hazardous occu
pations and designed to secure for them
more considerate treatment as well as
greater safety In the pursuit of their
avocations. It was. In fact, upon his
recommendation that the legislature of
Ohio passed the law requiring that all
street cars be furnished with vestibules
to protect the motormen and conduct
ors from Inclement weather.
However, bis great work In this con
nection was along the line of arbitra
tionauthorised but not compulsory,
and which ho regarded as the only fair
and equitable method for the settlement
of such difficulties. During his first
term the state board of arbitration was
created In accordance with the plan
previously pursued In Massachusetts,
and he made the workings of the board
a matter of personal supervision during
the entire four years of his administra
tion. This board has since Its organi
sation had Its services enlisted in 28
strikes, some of them involving as
many aa 2,000 men, and In IB casea its
efforts have been successful.
.No account of Mr. McKlnley's con
nection with labor problems would be
complete without some mention of the
tireless energy which he displayed In
securing relief for the 2,000 miners In
the Hocking Valley mining district who
early In 1895 were reported out of work
and destitute. The news first came to
the governor one night at midnight, but
before 5 o'clock In the morning he had
upon his own responsibility dispatched
to the afflicted district a car containing
11,000 worth of provisions. Later he
made appeals for assistance to the
Boards of Trade or Chambers of Com
merce of Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati
and Columbus ari Anally dtnributel

v Although Governor McKlnley's ad
ministration of affairs was remarkably
smooth and harmonious, there many
tunes devolved upon the chief executive
the solution of especially perplexing
problems. For iUFtance. during 1S9I,
the first year of his second term, the
state government received as many as 15
calls for troops to eld In enforcing the
law, a record, unprecedented since the
civil war, but he never faltered In fol
lowing thedlctates of his judgment and
even those' labor organizations and In
dividuals who are most radically op
posed to any and every action on the
part of the state militia were after
wards forced to admit the wisdom of
his course. '
Vpon the occasion of the great min
ers' strike In the summer of 1S94 there
were so many outbreaks and such con
tinual Interference with traffic on the
railroads that It was finally found nec
essary to call Into service every member
of the National Guard tn Ohio, but dur
ing their three-weeks' service the citizen-soldiers,
almost without exception,
acquitted thamselves most creditably.
In October of the same year there oc
curred at Washington court house,
Fayette county, an outbreak that was
one of the most serious of the kind In
the history of the state. It was caused
by the attempt of the citizens to lynch
the committer of a heinous crime, the
enraged populace not even being satis
fled by his prompt conviction and the
imposition of a sentence amounting to
the full limit of the law. In the con
flict between the citizens and the sol
diery three persons were killed and sev
eral more were Injured. This was the
case In which a court inquiry was in
stituted to investigate the conduct of
Colonel Colt, the commander of the
troops, but he was exonerated, and to
this action Governor McKlnley unhesi
tatingly gave his full endorsement.
Late In the fall of 1895 occurred the
memorable riot at Tiffin, Seneca county,
at which place a mob had assembled
determined upon the lynching of a pris
oner, then In the hands of the sheriff.
The governor was appealed to and he
Immediately ordered to Tiffin four com
panies of the national guard from four
neighboring towns. Almost Immedi
ately upon their arrival the mob dis
persed. Governor McKlnley's action In
every case where call was made for
troops evidenced judgment and deci
sion, as well as a determination to
demonstrate to possible law-breakers
that he was thoroughly master of the
NO RED TAPE.
A distinctive feature of Governor Mc
Klnley's administration was the entire
absence of "red tape" which character
ized the conduct of affairs in every de
partment with which he had anything
to do. The caller at the governor's of
fice at the state capltol always encoun
tered a colored attendant at the door,
but usually he was unhesitatingly in
vited to "Go right In." During his four
years' residence at Columbus Mr. Mc
Klnley maintained the same regularity
of habits and systematized with that
same care which has ever since his first
entrance Into public life enabled him
to do the work of several men. Al
though he almost invariably retired
late, the governor made a habit of ris
ing early and by 7 o'clock each morning
was usually ready to undertake the du
ties of the day. He first gave attention
to his correspondence, which was al
ways heavy, but as a rule the majority
of the letters requiring answers and
they averaged In number 80 per day
were turned over to his private secre
tary. Then there were the papers to
look over, innumerable visitors to see
and Anally an Infinite amount of rou
tine business which must be given at
tention regardless of everything else.
In fact, Mr. McKlnley was a very
busy man, and his work was all the
more fatiguing from the fact that he
and his wife occupied a suite of rooms
at thu Nell house, a prominent hotel
just opposite the capltol, and thus the
governor was never secure from Intru
sion. However, this hotel life, or rather
the location of the hostelry, had one
advantage, In that Mrs. McKlnley, who
is an invalid, could sit at the window
of her parlor In the Neil and watch her
husbund at work on the opposite side
of the street. The people of Columbus
often recall the scene that was pre
sented every morning, when, as the
governor went over to the capltol, he.
turned at the gate at the entrance of
the grounds, lifted his hat and bowed a
good-bye to the devoted watcher at
the window opposite.
The governor was usually ab.-ent
from Columbus during campaigns, but
he never loetr sight of public business,
constantly sending instructions to his
private secretary, and no matter how
arduous the duties ot campaigning or
how pressing the demands upon hlB
time, Mr. McKlnley when away from
home never lets a day pass without
sending one or more letters or tele
grams to his wife.
He even followed this rule Implicitly
during hl3 marvelous tour In 1894. Mc
Klnley has during his life made more
speeches and addressed a greater num
ber of people than any other man In
the world, but tn this campaign he sur
passed even his own recorTJs. Long be
fore Its opening the campaign mana
gers were in despair. Requests for a
visit from the champion of protection
came from all part3 of the country and
In almost every case there was an ab
solute refusal to accept "no" as an an
swer. , "
ON THE STUMP.
. The original programme contemplated
the delivery by Mr. McKlnley during
the campaign of forty-six set speeches,
and how well he met the extra de
mands made upon him may be Imag
ined when It Is stated that he spoke
at 325 other places. Thus for over eight
weeks he averaged seven speeches a
day. To the little party on board the
governor's car his performances were
a series of astounding revelations.
Every morning he was up by 6 o'clock,
often addressing a meeting before
breakfast, and thus he continued al
most without Interruption until late at
night. He delivered as many as 23
speeches In one day and during his tour
of 12,000 miles addressed fully 2,000,000
people. The trip was full of surprises,
but the same spontaneous enthusiasm
was manifest everywhere from Lincoln,
Neb., where the audience Included 600
cowboys who had ridden 90 miles en
their mustangs to hear the speech,' to
the valleys of New York, where the
train shot over the New Tork Central
road at the rate of sixty miles an hour:
and from Buffalo, where 25,000 people
turned out to greet him, to the sparsely-
settled portions of West Virginia, where
his eager auditors, after an early start,
had traveled miles along the mountain
Then there was that great demonstra
tion at New Orleans. The committee
there was bound to secure McKlnley for
a speech and Anally he was obliged to
cancel other dates and accede to their
requests. His tour through "Dixie"
was every where a triumphal one and
when New Orleans Was finally reached
the reception accorded him surprised
even the msjor. Into the normous

ter of the tariff talked to his vast audi
ence and then there was a marvelous
display of southern hospitality. Hun
dreds of men climbed upon the plat
form and fairly fought for an oppor
tunity to seise the hand of the Ohloan.
Thirty-six hours after the close of the
meeting McKlnley was back in the
north, apparently little fatigued by his
Journey of 2,000 miles.
STATE ELECTIONS THIS YEAR.
None of the Doubtful States to Voto
Before the Presidential Election.
From the New Tork Sun.
A larger number of states will partici
pate In this year's presidential election
than in any previous presidential elec
tion In the United States, and a larger
number of states, too, will vote on the
same day, Tuesday, November 3, than
ever heretofore, the list of states hold
ing preliminary spring or autumn elec
tion having been steadily reduced of
late years. None of the doubtful states
now holds a preliminary election, and
one of the last states to fall out of the
early list Is Oregon, which In June, 1888,
sounded what the Republicans called
"the opening gun" of the Harrison and
Morton contest by a Republican major
ity of 6,600. In the preliminary election
June, 1892, In Oregon the result was In
decisive and unsatisfactory, the Repub
lican candidate at the head of the state
ticket polling 31.000 votes, the Democrat
29.000 and the Populist 12.000. Later on
the electoral votes of the state were
divided between Oeneral Harrison and
The first of all the states to hold an
election in 1896 will be Rhode Island,
which on Wednesday, April 1, will vote
for state officers, and both of the politi
cal parties have held their respective
state conventions at Providence, and
both have put up the same candidates
as were in the field last year, the Re
publicans nomlnafing for governor
Charles Warren Llppltt, and the Demo
crats renominating- George Llttlefield.
At the election of last year, Mr. Llppltt
polled 25,000 votes and Mr. Llttlefield
14,000, and It la not seriously expected,
even by the most sanguine Democrat,
that the Republicans can be beaten In
Rhode Island this year. One peculiar
incident In the politics ot the smallest
state In the union is the rapid growth
within its boundaries of the Socialist
Labor party. On April 21 there will be
a state election for governor In Louisi
ana and a strong effort is already be
ing made to defeat the regular candi
date of the Democratic party by a for
midable combination of outside ele
ments, the Populists, Republicans and
sugar planter protection Democrats.
On August 3 there will be a state elec
tion In Alabama, and a repetition ot
the lively times of 1S92 and 1894 Is prom
ised. In both elections Kolb, a former
Democrat, was the opposition candidate
to the regular party nominee, and the
claim was made that the results, as of
ficially returned, did not correctly rep
resent the vote cast. In August, 1882,
Kolb polled 115,000 votes (or was cred
ited with that number) and his Demo
cratic opponent 126,000. In the state
election of 1894 In Alabama, Kolb had
83,000 votes, and Oates, hlB Democratic
opponent, 110,000. Afterward Kolb
caused himself to be sworn in as gov
ernor, and a dual state administration
was for a short time threatened. This
year a repetition of the fight is probable
and the national committee of the Re
publicans will probably, as in 1892, be
ased to take a hand in the contest. At
that time Chris Magee represented the
Three states will vote In September:
Vermont on September 1, choosing a
governor for two years; Arkansas on
September 7, choosing a governor for
two years, and Maine on 'September 14,
choosing a governor for two years. On
October 6 there will be a state election
In Florida, and on the day following,
October 7, a state election In Georgia,
which promises to be hotly contested
between the two Democratic factions,
