AVKINLEY'S SPEECH OF WELCOME
All Kloqutnt 'i'ributu to the Heroes of
the War of the He!cllionMore
Work for the Soldiers Who Fought
Cunton, O., July 16. With colors fly
ing and band pluylng, the Cuyahoga
county soldiers" and sailors' union
marched from their special train to
Major McKinley's house late this tl'ur
ncon. This organization is composed of
veterans of the war of the rebellion,
and is non-partisan. A number of short
Fpceches were made. The speakers
were Hush lierkley, Hon. W. T. Clark,
Chaplain George W. Pepper. ex-Consul
at Milan, E. I Patterson, E. li. Uohn,
W. J. Gleuni'ii and C. C. Deoste. One
of t tie tp.-aki rts stirred the audience,
which numbered a thousui:d or more,
to tumultuous applause when he said:
"We repiesent. Comrade McKlnley, the
hearts and voices of half a million vet
eran soldiers and sailors when we con
gratulate you upon your nomination to
the office so nobly filled by Lincoln and
Grant and Garfield."
When Major McKlnley arose to speak
he was greeted with prolonged cheers.
He said: "My comrades and fellow
citizens: I respond to your call with
special gratification. Nothing gives
me greater pleasure than to meet at
my home my comrades in the civil war.
The ties of fraternity and friendship
grow stronger and dearer as the years
recede and the old guard one by one Is
called home. Your presence revives
many patriotic memories, it recalls
Stirling and glorious events. How viv
idly they rise before us and what an
inspiration for the right they always
are. To have been a faithful soldier of
the union is no less a source of joy in
your advancing years and infirmities
than a legacy for family and friends.
It blesses him who gives and enriches
him who receives. , It Is a record of
patriotism and service in the severest
trials of our history. (Applause.) We
all know somrthlng of what that war
meant and what It cost: what sacrifice
it exacted, and for what a holy cause
the sacrifice was freely given. Treas
ure inimitable, suffering indescribable
and death beyond previous record or
comparison. By far the larger number
of our old comrades of the Urand Army
are sleeping in their splendid tents be
yond the river: but though death has
decimated our ranks, It is a consoling
reflection that more than a million of
our comrades still survive. It Is a grat
ifying thought that those who served
tncfr country best In war have always
been among our best and truest citi
zens In peace. It Is in the living pres
ent, however, and Its duties and respon
sibilities that every soldier Is now, as
always, most deeply Interested. (Ap
plause.) THE NEW ENEMY.
"We have reached a point In our his
tory when all men who love their coun
try must unite to defeat by their ballot
the forces which now assault the c.vjn
try's honor. The war has been over
thirty-two years, und as a result we
have a re-united country, u union
stronger and freer, a civilization higher
and nobler, a freedom brighter and
more enduring1, and a tlug dearer and
more sacred than ever before and all
of them safe from any enemy, because
the men who a third of a century ago
fought In deadly conlllct, united In their
masterful mltrht to oppose any enemy
who would ossall either freedom or
union or line. (Cheers). The struggle
which Is. upon us Involving national
good faith ami honor will enlist their
united and earnest services until those
who ure arraigned against the public
lalth shall be routed and dispersed.
"The bitterness of the war belongs to
the past. Its stories are the common
heritage of usi nil. Whnt was won In
that great conlllct belongs just as
sacredly to tlios- who lost as those who
triumphrd. You meet today not as sol
tilers, tut as citizens, Interested now In
maintaining the credit and honor of the
countiy you served so will and in re
storing prosperity and bettor times to
dur goodly horitaj. The future Is the
sacred trust t us all south as well as

men will obliterate old lines of party In

honor. This you have always done and

cussed with him the plank adopted by
the committee in executive session at
Cleveland. The deliberations at Cleve

There will be frequent meetings of the
committee during the campaign. The
headquarters In this city will be occu
pied a good deal of the time by Mr.
Hobart Mr. Manley and Mr. Quay. It is
understood that Mr. Quay will devote
a great deal of time in the south, a
section of the country with which he
is exceedingly familiar. Messrs. Hayle,
Leland, Dawes and Clayton will be
much In evidence at the Chicago head
quarter and will have charge of very
important work there. It la proposed
to have a lively speaking campaign but
the date for the formal opening has not
been decided uoon nor has the place
been chosen. The selection of the time
and place for the first great rally will
be determined somewhat by the devel
opments of the next three or four
weeks. The work of preparing and pub
lishing the documents and most of the
printed matter Intended for distribu
tion will be entrusted to the congress
ional committee Iu Washington. A
great deal of this work Is already un
der wuy and the committee evidently
means to act with uncommon vigor in
pushing its campaign of education.
Headquarters both In New York and
Chicago will be opened within two
weeks and the campaign will be fairly,

After Mr. McKee had retired. P. S.

called In and spent nearly an hour with
the committee. He announced that the
committee had determined to consoli

The Cinb Decides by Resolution That
It Has Always Sympathized with
the President's Fiuauciul Policy.
Will Support No Cuudidnte on Plat
form Thut Repudiates It.
Boston, Mass.. July 16. Nearly one
hundred members of the Massachusetts
rstorni club met and dined at the Par
ker house this afternoon. The main ob
ject of the gathering was to consider
the present political situation. Colonel
1 li. Hoxkell. of the Boston H'iraM.
Colonel Haskell opened the speaking
and struck the kty note of the gather
ing. He said: "This country has
renched a crisis graver than any other
It lias known since 18iil. (Load ap
plause). Though not questioning the
sincerity of anybody It seems fair to
say that various causes have brought
together, or are to bring Into dangerous
unanimity about all the popular delu
sions, vagaries and quackeries which
have in all ages threatened the stabili
ty of free institutions. The country Is
today seriously threatened with the de
basement of the currency, which in
volve the Impartial repudiation of all
private and public financial obligations.
It Is not only proposed to change the
standard of value, but to adopt a stand
ard liable to constant fluctuations. To
adopt silver as the standard under ex
isting conditions would be as absurd as
to steer a ship by the light on a moving
"Some of us believe that one of the
efficient causes of this state of things
has been the policy of extreme protec
tion which has prevailed in this coun
try for over a generation (renewed ap
plause). This policy has taught the
country a mischievous lesson that the
power of government can be used to
make and maintain artificial prices for
the products of the country. We can
question the logic of the silver miners
when they demand that the much want
ed principle of protection should be ex
tended to their product. If iron and
copper, why not silver. It is a fact that
protection has unnaturally stimulated
manufacture at the expense of other
great Interests, notably the agricultural
and shipping Interests.
CAUSE OF DISCONTENT.
"It ts a condition and not a theory with
which we now have to deal. The foun
dation of all the popular discontent now
so tnuiiuclugly arrajed against all (he
lessons of science and lstory, Is the
unhappy condition of the American
farmers. They have Been the prices of
their products prices made abroad
under sharp competition go steadily
downward while their mortgages re
mained undiminished. They blindly
struggle for relief, unwilling to look be
yond their own necessities. Their des
peration finds expression in popullstic
vugaries, promptly recommended by
charlatans and demagogues, to which
the false reasonings of the apostles of
protection give no color, and finally one
of the great political parties Is carried
off Its feet in the devil's dunce of the
Chicago convention (laughter and up
plause). I have a great deal of sympathy for
the farmers, but the quack remedy they
demand would leave them in a worse
condition than they are today. Tlie
farmer might get laifier prices forsils
products, but the purchasing power of
his money would be lessened. In only
one way would he gain by the"vepudla
tlon of his debts. Ail who work for
wages, all who have Invested their sav
ings, all who have liwured their lives,
the whole family of pensioners would
suffer. Capital would be able to take

would come upon the workers for
To prc-wnt such national disaster and
dishonor I am willing to set aside all

(Applause). As firmly as I believe in
lree trade. I am willing to hold this
question In alw-yance. A protective
te.riff only plcct.s an unnecessary bur
den on the baeii of labor. A debns"d
currency poisons Its llf blood mid de
stroys its strength. (Loud applause'.

Strike Situation at the Brown Hoisting
Works Assumes a Serious As
pect Severe Fi'shtlng.
Cleveland. July 16. The strike situa
tion at the Brown Hoisting works as
sumed so dangerous a phase this after
noon that three more companies of
troops were hurried to the scene just
before quitting time and are now en
camped In the works. Early in the af
ternoon crowds began to assemble and
stood sullenly about, defiant of police
orders to move on. There was so much
evidence of a pre-arranged plan, every
street leading to the works having Its
own division of trremob.that the author
ities in hot haste sent for more troops.
When the sixty-three men who had been
at work were placed In vans to be driven
home from the works, it was found
necessary to charge the mob twloe be
fore a passage could be made for the
wagons. The drivers had refused to
leave the stables with the vehicles and
policemen did the driving.
During the melee jeers and threats
were hurled at the "scabs," police and
militia and some stones were thrown.
The severest tighting was on Hamilton
Btreet and In the charges about forty
strikers were pricked by the bayonets.
After a passage had been forced the
militia had all It could do to keep the
mob from chasing the wagons. There
ts a sullen spirit abroad which Is more
dangerous than anything which the
police have yet met. One map suffer
ing from a bayonet wound was locked
up by the police. The state board of ar
bltiatton began Its work on the case to
day. APPALLING DISASTER.

Cleveland, O.. July 16. The most ap

Cleveland, except the viaduct horror

and all the men tlirown into the chan

Seven bodies have been taken from

Jefferson City. Mo., July 1G. William
J. Llryan arrived here at 12:40 p. m.,
Just as the train was drawing out of
the station at St. Louis the most inter
esting incident of the trip occurred.
Richard P. Bland had boarded the train
in the Union station, but he kept him
self in a forward car until the train had
started. He entered the parlor car In
which the Bryan party had seats and
made his way to where Mr. Bryan was
standing. Mr. Bland wore a long linen
duster over a suit of black clothes. He
stretched out his hand toward the pres
idential candidate as he reached the
latter and there was the warmest hand
grasp between the victor and the de
feated. "How are you, Mr. Bryan? I
congratulate you." said Mr. Bland.
"How are you, Mr. Bland? Thank
you," cried Mr. Bryan, warmly. "Your
nomination took a big load off my
mind," said Mr. Bland warmly.
Mrs. Bryan was presented to the vet
eran of free silver and after some gen
eral conversation the two men with
drew and talked earnestly together for
some time. Within an hour later there
waa some additional exchange of cor
diality between Bland and Bryan. The
train stopped at a little place called
Washington where a knot of people had
gathered to see the nominee. Standing
on the platform of the parlor car with
Mr. Bryan beside him, Mr. Bland said
to the crowd: "I want to Introduce
to you the next president of the United
States. I served four years with him In
the house of representatives, and I
know he was as true a friend of free
silver as I am, and I want to say that If
I had had the selection of a sliver can
didate for president of the United
States, this gentlemun would have been
Mr. Bryan showed some feeling as he
"If this nomination had gone by me, it
would have gone to the man who for
twenty years. In the face of great oppo
sition, has kept alive the silver cause
and In the hour of victory he will be
more entitled to the credit than any
other man In the nation." .
This Incident was repeated 'at Cha
mois, where Mr. Bland presented Mr.
Bryan to about a hundred people.
Mr. Bland left the party at Jefferson
City, where he will muke a speeceh to
night. ROUSING RECEPTION.
A rousing reception was given Mr.
Bryan here by a crowd of more than a
thousand people who were assembled
about the railroad station. Kx-Gover-nor
Stoue and other prominent men met
Mr. Pry an and Mr. Bland at the train
where the crowd had gathered. Mr.
Bryan was greeted with loud cheers.
He was presented to the audience by
Mr. Bland and Governor Stone as the
next president of the United States
and Mr. Bland again took occasion to
express his satisfaction at the choice of
the Chicago convention and predicted
that Missouri would roll up for him a
majority of 50.0CO in November. After
the band hi attendance had finished
playing Mr. Bryan made a neat little
speech on the line of those previously
When Mr. Bryan concluded he was
again cheered with vigor. Governor
Stone presented Mrs. Bryan as the next
mistress of the White House and the
Bryan party then withdrew to the train
which left Jefferson City at 1:15 p. m.
In his speech Mr. Bryan said:

been thinking where I could find in all

stances which would make a speech
so pleasant as In a city named after

Mr. Bryan said that the silver leader

Bryan, " it may be his honor to Intro
