Train with Their Own Band.
REPRESENTATIVE OF THEIR SEX
Women olUinukl Every Station Join
the Party-Mrs. Elroy Avery, of the
Daughter! of the Kevolutiou, .Makes
nil Address ou Part of the Visitors.
Canton, July 13. On their own spec
ial train and with their own baud, sev
eral hundred Cleveland women came
to Canton ihls momiiikc to call up'ii
Major Mcivlnley and to congratulate"
lilm and the nation, as one of thorn
put it, upon his nomination.
A fust Hiid Unions summer rain fell
m...st of the morning, but it did not pre
vent the Canton ptople from turning
out in lute number:, und wit'a cardial
5rojfl will to welcome th:lr fair visit
ors. The column cf hundreds of represen
tative women of Cleveland to cull upon
iviajor McKltiley was an unique event,
and one absolutely without precedent
in our political history. The visit to
Canton was projected and carried to
Its happy am? successful conclusion by
women. No man and no politician had
the slightest bl.are In the conception or
execution of the plan. The women who
came from Cleveland are representa
tive women, women who lead In the
highest ao-lal llfe of the city: women
promlii'.it in nil spheres of Intellectual
uctivity; women conspicuous for their
work in the fields of charity; women
notable for their devotion to church In
this city: women who ate of cjnse
uueuce in the educational world were
present in commandliiK numbers. There
were scares of other women, too. Wo
men with no spt?clu! claims to distinc
tion, but deeply interested In Major
McKlnley and the liit'Ii principles they
think he represents. The Cleveland
women made a handsome appearance
and were very charming In their fresh
summer raiment and guy hats blooming
SCENE AT. THE STATION.
The Cleveland delegation was met at
the station by a large committee of
Canton women, under the leadership
of Mrs. Miller, president of Soiusis, und
Mrs. Kate Hrownlee Sherwood. The
Cleveland women marched from the
railway station to the residence of Ma
jor Mi Iv'tiky. He was standing on the
porch to receive them. A speech of
congratulation was made on the part
of the visitors by Mrs. Elroy Avery, of
Cleveland, Mate regent of the Daught
ers of the Ktvolution.
Among 1 1 I.e. thlngx Mrs. Avery said:
We come from Cleveland, the great
heart of the western reserve Kiat gave
(.iiiMings, Wude und Qarfleld to the nu-Ilcn-u
illy of great American Industries
thut ure tulTering fiom un-American leg
Ishition; uu unfortified city on the border,
fa ing the Canadian frontier, ami yet rec
ognizing Hint our best prou-itlon uvuinst
fun Inn aggression is a protective tunff.
Cuming I loin a city of a hundred years
today, we tin ii aside from our renteiinl'il
to do homage to the man who best repre
sents the great American Ideu, under the
fostering cure of which we hope Cleveland
will gloriously flourish and bravely cele
brate her second hundredth yeur. We
come to greet you, not as politicians, but
as women, us wives and mothers und sis
ters. We cannot cust one vote fur you,
und yet we love our country.
We may fully uppreciate mnn-made po
litical platforms, but we better under
stand the signilicunce of current events
than some folks give us credit for. We
know thut when you filter the door of the
white house peace and comfort will enter
at our doors; that when you receive your
heritage by the decree of a grateful peo
ple, our husbands und fathers will re.
clve the fruits of their industry, und the
heart of the wife unci mother will be mane
glad. When the husband lacks work in
wife knows and feels It, though she will
still cheer and comfort. Who shall say
that woman has no Interest In your suc
cess? Every woman has a living Interest
in the money question. If our husbands
earn the money, we eptnil and intend 'o
spend It. Every ihrlfty woman wants her
few dollars to have as great a purchasing
power as is possible; to be worth one hun
dred cents, not rlfly; to be convertible into
twenty pounds of sugar, not ten. We
stand ready to welcome every one who
refuses to dwell longer In the tents of tin
opposition, and to bind up the wounds of
every one who, breaking loose from the
already disintegrating ranks of the enemy,
und plac ing patriot Ism above party,
pledges his support to the advance agent
Mrs. Avery's speech wns heartily and
A song written for the occasion by
Mrs. N. Coe Stewart, president of
Cle veland Sorosis, was sung with great
spirit und pleasing effect.
MAJOR M'KINLKY'9 REMARKS.
In response to Mrs. Avery's remarks,
Oovernor McKlnley said:
Mrs. Avery: 1 greatly appreciate this
friendly cull from the women of the city
of Clevland, and assure you that 1 do not
undervalue their gracious message uf
congratulation and confidence which you
have so eloquently delivered. It Is an in
surance of the deep Interest which you
feel and which should be felt by every'
family In the land. In the public questions,
of the day and their rightful settlement
at the polls. There is no limitation to the
influence that may be exerted by women
In the I'nlted States and no adequate trib
ute can be spoken of ber services to man
kind throughout Its long and eventful his
tory. The work of women has been a
power In every emergency und always for
good. Not only have some of the bright
est pages of our national history been
Illuminated by her splendid eJcample anil
nol.le efforts for the public good, but her
Influence In the home, the church, the
school and the community In molding
character for every profession and duty
to which our race Is called has been poten
tial n nd sublime. If Is In the quiet and
peaceful walks of life where her power Is
greatest and most beneficial. One of the
beBt thing of our civilization In America
Is the constant advancement of women to
a hlghe plane of labor and responsibility.
The opportunities for her are greater now
than ever before. Her Impress Is felt In
art. science, literature, song ami govern
ment. Respect for womankind has be
come with us a national characteristic,
und what a high and manly trait It Is
none nobler or holier. It stamps the true
gentleman. Tbe man who loves wife and
mother and hme will respect and rever
ence all womankind. He Is always the
better citizen for such gentle breeding.
The home over which the trusted wlfo
presides is tbe Ideal of our strength; the
best guarantee of good citlsensblp and
sound morals In goveitimnt. It Is :he
fuiritln nArtn t:' VS all !- m rr.TI-
strucled. From the plain American hom
where virtue dwells and truth ab.'Jrs, go
forth the men and women who make the
greut stutes and cities whtt h adorn our
republics, which maintain law und oruer,
and that citizenship which aims at the
public welfare the common good of all.
1 congratulate you upon what woman
has dune fur the grand und noble objects
in the past. 1 rejoice with you In trie
wider and broader Held of the present
and the splendid vista of the future which
Is everywhere opening up for you. f
again thank yon for your presence here
and for this manifestation of your regsrd
and good will. Some one has said that
"women mold the future as mothers and
govern the present us wives." Mrs. Mc
Klnley and I will be most happy to meet
and greet you one and all. (Applause).
Major McKlnley was frequently ap
plauded. When he finished speaking
there was a s'ntle but earliest finer,
und then Miss Hl'iti-ll.' Swllscr. of
Cleveland, stepped forth and pi enelite I
I Mrs. McKlnley with a large ba sket of
I handsome roS'.s.

Klnley shook hands w ith h!- visitors.
The bai'd which accori.p.vilrd the
Cleveland delegation was complied of
women who used fans vigorously when
they were pot blowing the big horns. It
Is a good band und its members did not
resemble professional musicians In the
least. There were no professional fe
male agitators or reformers uinopg the
hundreds who enme to Canton today.
The shouting, notoriety-seeking sisters
have betn sent to the rear. Women
representing the best culture und socie

na's rooms in the Pen y-Payne build

William Haskell as sc-rgeant-ut-arms.
Mr. Hannu met the nicbers of the com
mittee. In depressing circumstance:).
The sudden death yesterday uf his
brother-in-law. Col. Juities Plckutuls,
was a serious blow to him and he
showed the effect of the stroke in his
appearance and actions this morning.
However, he proceeded as best he could
with the consideration of the business
The committee remained In session
until 11 o'clock, when a brief intermis
sion was had for luncn. During the
morning no Interruption had been al
lowed, no cards were sent In .and no
messages received. Luncheon was par
taken of In the building and by two
o'clock the deliberations of the commit
tee were resumed.
Shortly before 4 o'clock the commit
tee adjourned until tomorrow. Senator
Quay left at once to take the train for
home. Mr. Hanna announced that My
ron M. Parker hud been selected as
member of the national committee from
the District of Columbia and C. S. John
son, member from Alaska. The Colo
rado vacancy was not filled. Mr. John
son was a delegate to St. Louis and
member of the committee to notify
Major McKlnley of his nomination.
Mr. Parker was grand marshal of the
Harrison inaugural piocesslon in 1SS9
uud later was one of the commissioners
of the district.
Mr. Hanna further announced that
It hud been decided to open cumpulKU
headquarters both In New York und
"Who will be In charge?" was asked.
"The chairman of the Republican Na
tional committee." lie answered. "He
will be In the saddle, so to speak and be

equal power, importance and scope."
"Well. Mr. Hanna," persisted the'in

AIR. QUAY'S SUCCESSOR,
Cnnnot Be Appointed l.y Attmnty
General .iyliii und .llcnr. Grow
Philadelphia, July 15. It Is now
claimed by some Republicans that the
selection of Senator Quay's successor
as chairman of the Republican State
committee cannot be mad by Attorney
General Mylln, the chairman of the
present state convention in conjunction
with Messrs. Grow and Davenport, the
candidates for congressmen at large.
At the state convention the senator
was elected after a resolution hud been
adopted suspending the operation of
the old rule and providing that the
election should be by the delegates.
Hence It is maintained that the vacancy
can only be rilled by the delegates com
ing together for that purpose or by the
It Is thought that to reconvene the
convention would be Impracticable,
but that in lieu of thut the state com
mittee must be called together, and the
vacacy filled by that body.
The question will probably be re
ferred to Mr. Quay and his opinion will
in all llkllhoud settle the matter.

Two more bands arrived at the last
moment und with the four thut had
been on the spot all day. they made
plenty of noise If no music. A recep
tion committee und several bands ts
corted Mr. and .Mrs Bryan from their
friend's residence to the park, and their
appearance was the signal for heurty
L. M. Cugy presided ut the meeting
und after prayer by Rev. K H. Young, a
Methodist minister, he mi.de u little
speech tompllineiitaiy to Mr. Hryan,
who had betn his claw mute at the Il
linois colli ge. and predicting Democra
tic victory in November.
When Mr. liryun wan presented and
after the checi lug had ceased he began
Eluv. ly and distinctly. When he re
ferred to his father and to his mother's
recent d.ath. ihere w is much feeling
In his tnne. The I'peech contained Very
little about politics and Mr. Hi. van ex
pressly disclaimed any Intention of
making a political speech.
MR. UKYAVS SPEECH.
"Mr. Clial.iiuiu, ladies and gentlemen
and fellow citizens." he said, "1 have no
disposition to talk politics today. 1
shall leave all disc ussion of party ques
tions to those who shall follow. Re
turning to the scenes which surround
my home, the memories of other days
crowd out ull thoughts of other subjects
on which we ui'iy agree or differ. I re
member with grateful appreciation the
kindly feeling on church and party Hues
when I lived among you and 1 shall not
attempt to divide by putty lines those
who are here today.
"This hi the home of my birth and
childhood. Three blocks south Is my
birthplace. A mile southwest Is the
home of my eaily boyhood. I shall never
fall to be grateful to my parents for
taking me to the farm where 1 gained
the physical strength that enubled me
to stand the rigors of a polltlcul life."
Mr. Bryan referred to the adjacent
court house us the place where he had
made his first political speech and to
other places In the vicinity Identified
with political career and he wus ap
plauded when he added: "It was here
that I first brought her who came to
share life's Joys and sorrows with me."
He could not forget, he said, Hume
whose kindly faces smiled upon lilm be
fore fortune smiled. He referred to the
nearby graveyard and spoke feelingly
of the dead father and mother. "1 can
not forget this place or these people."
said the orator, "and 1 cannot say more
toduy than to express In words mote
sincere than elaborute ull that I feel."
AN IDEAL IN POLITICS.
"I believe thut there is an Ideal plane
in politics and I belli ve we stand upon
It today. We meet today recognizing
the differences of feeling, but with
charity towards each other. We are all
Imbued with the same spirit, all imbued
with the same amlillons, all aiming to
carry out the suine purpose. We want
government of the people, for the peo
ple, and by the people und If we differ
as to the means, we cannot Oilier as
honest citizens In purpose. 1 thank the
Republicans who are assembled here, I
thank the Prohibitionists, 1 thank the
Populists, as much as I do the Demo
crats, because, my friends, when these
questions which rise to the surface and
agitate people have passed away, we
then understand those fumluinentul
principles willed underlie our govern
ment. We ull agree In Iiim. that when
ever the government conies In tutilact
with the citizens and the citizen with
the government we all stand equal be
fore the lav,-. We agree that the gov
ernment can be no respector of person
and thut its strength. Its matchless
strength, must be the protector of the
fortunes or the great and the business
of the poor; thut It shall stand un lin
pailinl arbiter between ull of Its citi
zens. We believe that governments de
rive their Just powers from the consent
of the governed. We know no divine
right of kings. These citizens are those
upon whom rest the responsibilities of
government, and while each strives in
his own way to bring the movement to
a tit expression of the virtue of the peo
ple, we cannot agree on those minor
points w liich separate us.
"ft wus here 1 received my first In
structions in Democracy. It was here
I learned the truth of the saying that
clothes do not make the man. but
all who have the good of the country
at heart, ull these stand ou common
ground and all are citizens. These are
the basic principles upon which rests
the greatest nation on earth. I believe
In the progress of the race. Talk not
to me of crises through which we can
not pass, or obstacles too great to over
come. I know none such. A patriotic
people are ready to meet every emer
gency, as it arises and as each genera
tion follows each, I believe It will be
better fitted to perform the work of
progress than ever before.
FREEDOM OP CONSCIENCE.
"It was here that I learned freedom
of conscience. Every man has the
right to worship God according to his
own conscience, and no man shall dic
tate how a man shall serve his God
Mr. Rryan quoted Abraham Lincoln's
famous Gettysburg speech, referring to
the absolute confidence with which the
nation might look to Its people In time
of danger, and In conclusion said:
"Vy friends here, and throunrhoflt
the land, the nation can look with con
fidence that patriotism and courage will
meet every danger. "I thank you all
for what you have done for me and for
the kindly expression which I see on
every face. We shall go forth and do
our duty as we see It, but the result will
be unknown until the votes are counted.
Put whether this camiialgu will result
In victory or defeat, I know time cannot
rob me of the affections of my boyhood
Mrs. Rryan was presented to the
audience and was given a hearty greet
lug, to which she responded with a bow
Then Hon. P. At. Youngblood, of Car
bondale. Ills., had his inning. He was
Introduced as that "old war horse of
Southern Democracy," and made a
lively speech. Others also spoke and
the meeting was voted a great success.
A second political demonstration In
honor of the Democratic candidate for
president took place this evening In the
court house purk. Addresses were
made by Mr. Hi. van, J. S. Williams, es
congre'ssman from this state.and others.
Mr. Cragy presided at the evening
meeting and his opening announce
ment that Nebraska Populist conven
tlon had today endorsed Uryan by a
vote of 70 to 30, was followed by great
cheering. The meeting was larger und
more enthusiastic than that of the af
ternoon and when Mr. Bryan was In
troduced he was given an ovation.
.Mr. Rryan spoke as follows:
Mr. Chulruiuu, Ladles and Gentlemen
and Fellow Citizens; J agreed to suy a
word in opening the meeting and then 1
am going to give way to those who will
discuss the Issues of the duy. I remember
that when I was ut college a saying In
'Plutaeli was that the men entertained
three sentiments concerning the Gods,
they worshiped them because of their
power, they admired them because of
their wisdom und they loved them for
their Justice. That suylng made u deep
impression 5n my mind and 1 think we can
use them to describe the three great forms
of government: The monarchical, the
aristocratic und the democratic. The
monarchical Is all powerful, because nil
forces ure concentrated in one hand. The
aristocratic I orin of government Is pow
erful becuuse It Is conducted by u few
supposed to be the best. That muy be
wise, but u Democracy is the only form
of government where you can confidently
expect Justice to rule. Rut, my friends,
UKitutlun in u country like ours Is the
only way to secure Justice. The agitator
Ii accused of stirring up discontent. Dis
content lies ut the bottom of ull progress.
If our forefathers hud been content we
would be toduy under liiltlsh rule. (Great
cheering). It Is only because they Were
not satlslled that we have the govern
ment we have today. When un ugltator
presents a question we should only in
quire. Is the proposition which he presents
the right one'.' Today when there are
greut uggregatioiis of wealth, with tile
power of niuich they bring, when they
come in contact with the weak, the strong
arm of the government Is necessary to
protect the weak from the Injustice of
the strong and 1 say that it is necessary
for the government to protect the hum
blest citizen of the land. Take the Issues
to be proposed and see If they are real
remedies und If they will improve the
condition of the body politic. You usk me
if these things ure right we seek to ac
complish. I suy if these forms are right
they will be accomplished. 1 thank you.
Mr. Bryan withdrew when he had
concluded and the crowd gave him a
farewell salute of three cheers. He
went Immediately to the house of his
sister, Mrs. Huird, and retired to get
a good rest before taking the 5.30 train
for St. Louis in the morning.
