Presidential Candidate and His Manager
Shake Hands at Canton.
The Greetings Were Devoid or
Theatrical FeaturesHenry Clay
Evans Prouiiacs a Lively Com
lutign Down in Tennessee and is
Coulidcut of Victory.
Canton, Ohio, June 22. Major Mc
Kinley met his famous manager, Mr.
M. A. Hanna, today for the first time
since the triumphant conclusion of his
labors of the past six months at St.
Louis last Thursday. There was noth
ing theatrical nor demonstrative about
It. neither of the gentlemen being In
clined to exhibit emotion even. under
the most trying conditions. Mr. Hanna
came down on the Valley railroad. In
his private car, accompanied by Mm.
Hanna, Hon. Henry Clay Evans, of
Chattanooga, Mr. Hobart's most Mr
mlilnhle opponent for the second place
on the ticket nomlnnted at St. Louis;
Col. and Mrs. Fred. Grant, of New
York: Mr. William Osborne, a cousin of
the major, ex-police commissioner of
r.os-ton; Messrs. Myron T. Herrick and
Sylvester Everett, of Cleveland.
Major McKlnley was at' the station
and he met his guests In the car. The
greeting to and from Mr. Hanna was
marked with a cordial grasp of the
hand. The major Bald: "I am glad to
see you," and Mr. Hanna responded:
Major, I am glad to see you."
Alighting from the car, Major Mc
Klnley took Mrs. Hanna, Mrs. Grant
and Mr. Evans with him In the family
carriage, and drawn by the staid old
white horse, they proceeded sedately
and securely to the house. The gentle
men used public conveyances, Messrs.
Everett and Herrick repairing to one
of the hotels. Shortly after reaching the
house lunch was served.
Mr. Evans was his usual frank en
tertaining self, and responded readily
to a suggestion for an Interview,
"What do you think of the ticket, now
that it does not Include the nil me of
E vans'.'" he was asked.
"1 think it Is a first rate combination,"
was his hearty answer, "and a sure
winner. It will go well In our part of the
"Js there any chance of carrying Ten
nessee ?"
"Indeed there is, much more than a
fighting chance, too. Our governorship
contest will give us votes. The Demo
crats nominated Bob Taylor as the only
man they could possibly elect. He served
two years and made a very poor gov
ernor. He cannot point to a single
measure Inaugurated during his four
years administration which has bene
fited the people In the least while we can
specify several abuses which originated
In that period. These state matters, to
gether with the growth of the protection
senlment of which Major McKlnley Is
the exponent In our midst, make It al
most sure that Tennessee will fall Into
the Republican column this year.
After lunch Mr. Hanna anie out on
the porch with the other visitors and
chatted with the newspaper men who
make that their camping place. He
talked entertainingly of the early his
tory of the northeastern part of Ohio,
speaking of the prominent men who
have come from Stark and Columbiana
counties. He recalled the fact that
Thomas C. Piatt was from Canton and
that Edward Vtan ton's people came
from Columbiana county. It developed
In the course of the talk that Mr. Hanna
and Mr. McKlnley were friends of much
longer relationship than has been pop
ularly supposed. Mr. Hanna's uncle,
when the family lived In Columbiana
county, w here he himself was born, was
In partnership with Major McKlnley's
rather in an Iron enterprise.
"Anything Important bring you down
here today?" was asked Mr. Hanna by
the Vnlted Press representative.
"No, I can't say there Is," he replied.
"I returned from the convention only
Saturday and naturally wanted to see
Major McKlnley at the first convenient
opportunity That was today."
"What about the committee on noti
fication?" "The arrangements for its visit are
complete. The members will gather In
Cleveland and leave there by special
train next Monday morning for Can
ton, returning later In the day. The
speeches will be made enrly so that the
ceremony can be concluded by lunch
"Have you selected the members of
the executive committee?"
"I cannot say that the selections are
all made, but I am at work on the sub
ject and will announce the names In a
few days. I may say that all publica
tions of names In connection with the
composition of the committee have been
wholly unauthorized."
"Where will the headquarters of the
commltteee be located?"
"I do not know."
"Do you favor Cleveland? If that
were known that might probably have
some influence In determining the ques
"I am not sure that I do not favor
Cleveland. And anyhow, I should not
say, for that la a question the commit
tee should determine, having In view
only the best Interests of the party and
not be Influenced by personal prefer
"There has been much said about the
financial plank of the platform, Mr.
Hanna, and the reasons for its adoption
In Its present form. What have you to
"Only this that the assertion that It
was In any sense forced upon the con
mltteee or convention by the delegates
from the east, or any particular part
of the east, Is untrue."
"Then It Is satisfactory to you?"!
"Personally speaking, entirely so."
"What shape or direction will the
campaign take, tariff or flnance?"
. "Oh It .will be strongly tariff: you
can be sure of that" ' ,
Later Mr. Hanna was closeted with
Mr. McKlnley remaining with him until
train time.
CoL Grant said in response to any In
quiry: ; . ' ,: ;, . - ; .:'
"I am very much planed with the nlat-
form. It will be satisfactory to the east
and make that section solid for the par
ty and candidate who stands upon It."
At 4 o'clock the Cleveland party made
their adieus and fifteen minutes later
left the city on the return trip. Mr.
Evans will leave Cleveland tonight for
Chattanooga, reaching home at 10
o'clock Tuesday night Cot. and Mrs.
Grant go on to New York tomorrow.
While these visitors were at the house
they were joined by W. M. Hahn, of
Mansfield, formerly members of the
national committee from Ohio and Col
Henry I. Kowalsky, a delegate from San
Francisco, en route to Pltusburg, where
he will address the ratification meeting
to be held in Carnegie hall. Th? colonel
takes rosate view of the situation in
the west.
"California." he said, "Is vitally In
terested In the maintenance of the
principles of protection and upon that
Issue the Republican party will trium
phantly carry the state. The money
question will cut no important figure. I
think the condition of things in Colo
rado warrants me In saying that Wol
cott will defeat Teller, and that the
centennial state will remain In the Re
publican column. I have talked with
Major McKlnley," continued Col. Ko
walsky, "and he Is of the opinion that
several of the silver states, so called,
can be carried this year on the protec
tive tariff argument."
Mr. Hahn spoke In the same strain.
"You have to make your campaign," he
said, "upon your whole platform. This
year protection and sound money, and
by that we will win. The people nomi
nated McKlnley and the people will
elect him." '
This afternoon a florist and a gard
ener with a force of men put the Mc
Klnley yard In as good condition as pos-
sible.sodding over the Dower bed spaces.
In order to better support the myriads
of visitors that will throng the place.
Major McKlnley wears upon his
watch chain an old Henry Clay medal,
about the size of a silver quarter, of
which he is very prend. On one side Is
a vignette of Clay an& on the reverse
the words "Protection to American In
dustry." The most Interesting, if not most im
portant day passed by Major McKlnley
since he entered upon his career as a
presidential candidate, closed the even
ing with the visit of a delegation of
250 citizens of Znnesville and Muskin
gum county. They came under the au
spices of the Business Men's Republi
can club of that city. Congressman H.
C. Van Voorhis was spokesman for the
Major McKlnley was received with
cheers as he mounted a chair to re
spond. His remarks were on this occa
sion chiefly remarkable for his first
reference, in any of his speeches, to the
financial plank In the platform when
he said "when we give a full day's work
we are entitled to be paid In a full dol
lar." It was also noticeable that this
evoked the first applause.
After bidding the delegation welcome
Major McKlnley went on to say: "We
have had some experience In the last
three years and a half, experience has
superceded prophecy and cold facts
have taken the place of prediction. We
all know more than we knew three
years and a half ago and we are all
ready and anxious to get back to the
period of 1892, when this country was
enjoying the highest prosperity, with
the largest domestic trade It ever en
joyed and the largest foreign trade
with the nations of the world. We want
to get back to that policy, my fellow
citizens, which will give to us work and
wages, give to agriculture home mar
ket and a good foreign market, which
was opened up by the reciprocity legis
lation of the Republican party. We
have come to appreciate that protec
tive tariffs are better than idleness, and
that wise tariff legislation la more oust
ness like than debts and deficiencies and
all feel that the sooner we can change
that policy which increased the debts
of the government to the policy of
'paying as we go' the sooner we will
reach Individual and national prosper
ity. And, my countrymen, there is an
other thing the people are determined
upon and that Is that a full day's work
must be paid a full dollar.". (Cries of
"Good" and loud cheers.)
Major McKlnley was presented to the
visitors by President Logan of th? Busi
ness Men's club, and when they had all
shaken hands they marched back to the
station, whence they started on the re
turn trip at 9 o'clock.
A visitor this evening was Judjsfa
Jamts A. Waymeier, of Alameda, Cal.,
who was Mr. Hanna's representative In
that state In the canvass preliminary to
the convention. He came to pay his re
spects to thi major before returning to
the Pacific coast. He confirmed Col.
Kowelsky's diagnosis, of the situation
in that state. "We shall give McKlnley
2,000 majority despite the silver craze,
the extent of which Is very much ex
aggerated and we will carry Oregon and
Washington. All we will lose will be
Governor Bushnell wlrid tonight that

West Chester, Pa., June 52. George
Mills, a colored man serving a term of
fourteen years In the Chester county
prison, of which sentence he had served
rive years, escaped last night and no
trace of him can be discovered.
Mills was convicted of assaulting and
attempting to murder a fourteen-year-
old girl. After the assault he threw her
Into a lake, thinking to drown her. She
got out, however. Mills was captured
in Jersey City, where he had fled, and

Expects to Swing the Democracy Into
Line Tor a Gold Standard at the
Chicago ConventionA Gold Plank
to Be Adopted at Saratoga.
Austin, Tex., June 22. Some of the
sliver delegates to the state Democratic
convention which meets tomorrow have
arrived here, and when seen by the As
sociated Press representative stated that
individually tluy were not all averse
to the Indorsement of Teller by the
Democrats; that as the issue of the cam
paign was to be on Bllver and gold,
they believed that all factions. Irre
spective of party lines, would affiliate to
win the battle; that Teller would poll a
strong Republican following, and If the
Democrats and Populists indorsed his
canvass and supported him that he
would undoubtedly be the next presi
dent. The addivss Issued by the Populists
In St. Louis Saturday Indorsing Teller is
learned, and caused many of the Bll
ver Democrats who have arrived to say
that they would work In the state con
vention Tuesday for an Indorsement of
Teller, and that they believed that they
would secure the Chicago delegation for
The "sound money" convention, which
also meets here Tuesday, will, of course
send only gold men to Chicago, and will
Indorse Cleveland and Carlisle.
Denver, Col., June 22. The News
printed a long, interview with Judge
Henry C. Caldwell, of Little Rock, who
Is spending his vacation in Colorado.
The judge expressed the hope that the
free silver forces will be united upon
one candidate. Regarding the man
most likely to be selected, he said:
"There are plenty of good men. I
think the Populists and silver Republi
cans will support Mr. Teller. Mr. Bland,
or any pronounced and reliable silver
man who is known to have the requisite
courage and resolution without regard
to his previous politics." In regard to
Senator Teller's candidacy In the south,
he said:
"The splendid moral courage which
he exhibited when he repudiated the
anti-Republican action of his party at
St. Louis, has been exhibited on other
occasions. More than once In the sen
ate he has defied the party lash and the
behests of the party caucus and stood
up In defense of the rights of the south
ern people. His determined hostility to
the Force bill defeated that measure
and has endeared him to the southern
people, and should he be the candidate
he will be enthusiastically supported
by them. I know he is universally re
garded by the leading Democrats of the
south as an able, courageous, patriotio
and broad-minded statesman, and that
upon the supreme Issue now before the
American people Is the acknowledged
leader of the right."
New York June 22. William C. Whit
ney was seen today before he left for
Albany to attend a conference of Demo
cratic leaders. He said: "The report
that I said that the eastern Democrats
were discouraged by the overwhelming
majority of silver men that will be dele
gates in the Democratic national con
vention Is untrue. We are by no means
discouraged and propose to put forth
our most pursuasive powers to induce
the national convention to adopt a gold
plank. We are willing to admit that
the silver men will have almost a two
thirds majority In the convention. We
rely, however, on our arguments and
hope for victory. We are Inclined to
believe that we may Induce the silver
men to recognize the Imprtance of hav
ing a gold plank In the platform. De
spite the facts that we are dis
couraged we are more strongly than
ever convinced that we have a fight
ing chance.
"Gold men In the east are just getting
keyed upon the subject and every day
more Interest is expressed in the situa
tion by men of Improtance.
"The gold sentiment is growing
"I cannot say what will be done at
Albany today, but In all probability the
gold plank, to be adopted at Saratoga
will be formulated."
The Albany conference will be held at
the apartments of Senator Hill.
Milwaukee, Wis., June 22. The gold
men and friends of the Cleveland ad
ministration appear to have captured
the Wisconsin Democracy, and at the
convention of the party, which will as
semble at the Bijou theater tomorrow
at 11 o'clock, the gold men will be able
to run things their own way. The sil
ver forces of the state are not organized
and the victories won by them in the
preliminary skirmishes about ten days
ago alarmed the gold men and only
tended to spur them on to more vigorous
efforts. There will be 359 delegates In
the convention, of one for every BOO
votes cast for Cleveland In 1S92.
A careful etlmate prepared this
morning shows that there will be, as
far as heard from, 149 gold men, 87 sil
ver men and 62 doubtful.
Illinois Democratic State Convention
is Cut and Dried.
Peoria, Ills, June 22. Save in the mat
ter of political complexion the Demo
cratic state convention tomorrow will
be a reproduction on a miniature scale
of the gathering of the Republican hosts
at St. Louis. The silver Interest Is as
much In control as was that of the gold
standardltes there, and Governor Alt
geld Is the Mark Hanna of the occaton.
He will designate the delegates to Chi
cago, draft the platform. Indicate his
preferences for the nominations on the
state ticket, and whatever he says and
does will be accepted without murmur
Ings. Everything is so thoroughly cut and
dried that Becretary of State Henrlck-
sen said this morning that the entire
business would be gone through with
within two hours, Instead of two dayB,
as originally contemplated. As for the
sound money minority, It will content
Itself with a protest against the silver
plank, but according to the present pro
gramme there will be no noit. iti,ifl
no particular candidate for the presi
dency will be endorsed.
Perhaps the most significant features
of the gathering of the Democratic clans
for tomorrow's state convention is the
strong under current of sentiment tn
favor of the endorsement of Senator
Teller as a presidential candidate upon
an out and out free coinage platform by
the national convention at Chicago.
There Is no question thai were a Teller
resolution Introduced toraprrowlt wou'd
receive the support of quite a respect
able following, but the suggestion Is an
tagonized by the Altgeld machine. which
Is in favor of nominating a straight out
silver Democrat The state for dtie-gate-at-large
as agreed upon. Is headed
by the governor himself with Secre
tary Henrlcksen, Judge Sam P. Mc
Connell, Chicago, and General Lewis B.
Parsons, of Florida, as his associates.
The latter Is eighty years old and has
a very creditable war record. For a
quarter of a century he has lived In re
tirement, farming and preaching free
Bllver and proposes to take the national
stump in the coming campaign. Thom
as H. Gahan, of Chicago.has been slated
to succeed National Committeeman
Benjamin T. Cable.
The platform will. In the main, be de
voted to state affairs, the national
planks being confined to declarations
for free coinage and a revenue tariff.
The Citizens of Peterson Ratify His
' Nomination as Vice President by
a Grand Demonstration.
Paterson, N. J., June 22. This city
was brilliantly Illuminated and decora
ted tonlghit in honor of Gerreit A. Ho
bart's nomination for vice president.
Between 6,000 and 6.000 citizens of all
political parties joined In a procession
to the armory, where '6,000 nyrsons,
mostly women, were in waiting for the
parade. All the musical organisations
In the city wero engaged for the occa
sion. Judge John Hopper, a Democrat
was the first speaker. After paying a
high compliment to the candidate for
vice president and his career In Pater
son, he introduced Mayor Braun, also a
Democrat The, latter said that Mr
Hobart wtas worthy of all the honors
that could be bestowed upon him, Gov
ernor John W. Griggs followed in a
brief address. He said that he had
known Mr. Hobart for thirty years and
was positive that if he was elected viae
president none In this city would re
joice more over his election than those
of the opposite parties.
When Mr. Hobart advanced to the
front of the platform which was heavily
laden with floral pieces, the audience
went wild with enthusiasm, the women
cheering more lustily than the male
portion of the assemblage. Mr. Hobart
confined his remarks to the city and
people of Paterson and said that he
woud rather have the esteem and confi
dence of the people, such as was mani
fested tonight than any office within the
gift of any political organization.
At the conclusion of his speech he
quoted the following from Robert Bums:
The bridegroom may forget the bride who
was made his wedded wife yester en.
The monarch may forget the crown that
on brow In honor hath been,
The mother may forget the babe that
smiles so sweetly on her knee.
But I'll remember Glencarn and all that
thou hast done for me.
An Emblem to Be Worn by Advocates
of tbe Sixteen to One Financial
Policy Design to Be Patented.
Washington, June 22 A design has
been submitted to the patent office and
a copyright asked thereon for a floral
emblem to be om by the adherents of
the free silver plan. The final Issue of
the papers has been made, but under
the rules of the patent office the de
sign Is sufficiently protected to prevent
The emblem Is In the form of a com
mon field daisy, with sixteen petals,
each numbered on the tip from one to
sixteen, and the yellow center marked
with a figure one. The designer claims
that this exactly expresses the Idea
of the silver men's motto that of 16
to 1, with colors symbolizing both met
als. The adoption of the scheme Is under
consideration by the leading silver men
now in Washington and a determined
effort will be made to get a resolution
through the Chicago convention for the
adoption of the button by the adher
ents of the party and to make It as of
ficial in its character as the pampas
grass emblem which Mr. Hanna sug
gests be adopted ns the official floral
emblem of the Republicans, and which
the sliver men claim does not convey
any idea but that of the national colors
red white and blue and grows In
but one section of the country, while
the flower that Is their emblem grows
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, The
daisy emblems will be out in a few days.

Washington, June 22. The suspen
sion of Sunday service at tha Brooklyn
navy yard yesterday and the contin
uance of work on some of the war
vessels there during the day, which
gave rise to rumors that Admiral
Bunce's squadron was being made
ready for Immediate sea service in
Cuban waters was explained In a satis
factory manner at the navy department
this afternoon. The cruiser New York,
the flagship of the squadron, went into
the dry dock at Brookly Saturday for
cleaning and some minor repairs. That
date was selected for docking on ac
count of the prevailing high tide and as
it will be necessary to have all the work
finished so that she can leave the dock
tomorrow or next day before the tide
recedes her sailors were kept busy ail
day yesterday. It Is said at the depart
ment that If the New York does not
leave the dock within a day or two, she
will be unable to gat out for another
Although the dispatches from New
York do not say so It Is believed at the
department that work on the construc
tion of the unfinished monitor Puritan
also went on Sunday. This work was
delayed for nearly three months ow
ing to the differences between Naval
Constructor Bowels and Commander
8 perry, the latter In charge of the Purl
tan's ordnance. Secretary Herbert was
not aware of the full extent of the de
lay until recently and he ordered work
to be resumed and hastened. The Purl
tan's construction force 1b now working
overtime and probably were kept busy
during yesterday.
No orders Indicating prospective hos
tilities with Spain have been issued to
Admiral Bunco. He is concentrating
all his energies to have his fleet ready
for the regular Bummer practice cruise

Farrell, of Allequlppa, Allegheny coun
