morning. Besides the usual large num
ber of letters containing expresnlons of
best wishes, assurance of support, and
i-oiiKiHtulatlons upon the Maine vic
tory, there were advices from numer
ous political organizations, clubs and
Individuals throughout thl &"l un
joining states or their intention to par
turiate In the Me demonstration to be
hidd In this city tomorrow.
Should the weather prove favorable,
It is, expected thut the opening of the
cutupuiKti In Stark county tomorrow
will be the greatest political gathering
in the history of the state. The rail
roads centering In Canton have ar
ranged for the reception of fifty special
trains of excursionist which will come
from all directions.
WORKMEN PROM T1RADDOCK.
A large and enthusiastic delegation,
romposed of the employes of the Kdgur
Thomson Steel works, at Braddock, Pa.,
arrived on three special trains over the
Pennsylvania railroad shortly after
noon today. The visitors wwe accom
panied by the Sherldnn Sabre and St.
Thomas bunds. There were fully 3.500
persons in the party. At the depot the
visitors were met by the Canton mount
ed troop and a large crowd of citizens.
When the last of the three trains had
pulled into the atation the line was
formed Hnd the delegation marched to
the residence of Major McKlnley. The
spokesman of the party was John I
Jones. Ue said:
AI:vjor McKlnley: We come from the
town of Kraddock, l'a.. us u delegation of
emploves of the great Kdgar Thomson
works, of nil 'lasses, colors and creeds,
not as licpiiliMcaus or Hi-innciats. We
have thrown old party utllliHtloiie. Rsl'le,
as In the d.tvs of ''il and 'ifi. .Indus sold his
Master for thirtv pieces of silver, ratio
unknown; Arnold tried 10 sell his country
for a prize, and we recognize the fact that
we have men in our 'country today who
would liriiiK.ruIn and dlshouoi' on our old
ting and nation for l'i ounces of silver.
.,-;M K.. .. it Vm ttiti-lv that
i degrade the honor of the nation shall I
have our votes, no party thai says that the
lietioin 1 government I not supreme shall I
have our support, and the inn n who tries i
to army imipses agvt-inFt "classes will be I
t routed with the contempt he deserves.
We rtcognize no man as our superior. We i
look lo von. the soldier, statesman and
true p:-.iiot. one who has always been the
true rriend of the workinmtian, one who
know their wants, who has said that hon
est lulior should have a chance thruUKh
hones'tol to eurr. an honest dollar.
With our friend and comrade, William
McKlnley, In the presidential chair, a
loyal congress lo bold up hl hands, und
n strong protective tariff In working order,
the "crown nf thorns und cross of (told
and III to 1 " hurled In Cotter's Held forever,
then will peace and prosperity reign.
Major ai. Uinity had been received
with a storm of cheerimt when he ap
peared on 'the jjorch. This applause
was renewed when the spokesman had
finished his Introductory remark 8. and
the nominee had mounted a chair to re
spond. He said:
MAJOR McKlNLEY'S ADDRESS.
Mr. Jones and my fellow-cltlzens: Many
deligatlon have waited upon me In the
last two months. All have been welcomed
and their visits have been Inspiring: but
somehow when an assemblage of work
Ingtnen come to puy me a visit, It attracts
my Interest and touches my huart.
('heem, I I bid you welcome to my city
and to my home. I can well appreciate
w hy the win kin men of this country
Khould have a deep und profound Interest
in the outcome uf the present national
contest. We cannot fall to remember that
the one thing which stand between your
labor and the luuor of Europe, thi- one
thing which stands between sour work
shops and the workshops of the old world,
is a wise pstriuttc American protective
policy. (Great cheering. i 1 am Klad to
have you come in the manner your spokes
man has describedrepresenting all
creeds, all colors, and all classes, men
who hclmtg to the Kepulillcan party and
those who have heretofore belonged to
other parties now Helton tenet her for what
Ihey believe lo be the cuunuou good. (Ap
plause.) This is distinctively .the people's year,
when old lilies are effaced and men here
tofore opposed to meet upon a common
platform to sustain the honor ol our coun
try. (Applause.) Wo are all concerned,
no mil tier what may be our occupations,
in our country's welfare. (Cries of "that's
so. "I Whatever political views we may
have, however, we may diflVr on minor
questions of public policy, we are all cf
one mind In the conviction that some
thing or other is the matter with the
country. (Applause.) We may differ la
our diagnosis; we may differ about the
treatment In detail, but we do not (il.ia
Kl'et upon what is essential In the first In
stance to the restoration of 'better condi
tions of the past.
NKED OP CONPIDEXCK.
One thing above all else thai Is wanted
at this Juncture is the return of public
and private irontldeuce. (Applause.) Its
absence is our iunaamental trouble. I pun
that there cannot tie two opinions, and
that, my fellow-citizens, no class of peo.
pie know better than you. We know the
very day and the hour when this confi
dence was first shaken, and from that hour
distrust and doubt have hum; over the
business of the country. It has been ag
gravated from a variety of causes, hut
none greater than the assault which has
been made by the allied political organiza
tions upon the credit and the currency cf
the country. (Applause.) This new men
ace must be averted before we can hope
to have any permanent prosperity.
We know that the present monetary
standard has not stood In the way -f our
prosperity in the past. (Cries of "no, no;
free trade has."') you know that we were
prosperous in 1K92 and had been for the
preceding ten years. You know that wc
have not seen any real measure of pros
perity since. (Applause.) Business is so
sensitive, so quick to scent danger, that
any legislation or proposed legislation or
change of policy which would deranee or
alter or unsettle values, is felt long before
the apprehended blow is given. So Xhat
from the very hour it was determined by
the American people that the Republican
party, which, with but a single interrup
tion, had been In control of the govern
ment for more than thirty years, win to go
out of power and another party with a
different policy was to come in, that mo
ment every business man of the country
assumed an attitude of waiting and of
anxiety, (Applause.) While business men
were waiting to know exastly what that
legislation was to be, business was lan
guishing from one end to the other and
labor was without work. Then we com
menced lacing from hand to mouth and we
have been living from hand to mouth evr
since. (Great applause and cries of "We
A9 TO CHEAPNESS.
My countrymen, I am one of those
Americans who believe that the American
werkshop should be protected as far as
possible from the foreign workshop, to
the end that American worklngmen. (Ap
plause) may be constantly employed, and
su protected, too, us to be employed nt
American wages. '(Tremendous cheering.)
Nor do 1 want products cheapened at the
expense of American manhood. (Ap
plause.) Nor do I think that it is econo
my to buy goods cheaply abroad If there
by it enforces Idleness at home. (Re
newed applause.) Such goods are the dear
est thut American people can buy. (Cries
of "light you are. Major.") James 11.
Klalne (applause), that gifted statesman,
In 1K84. sKike words of wisdom which
seem singularly applicable to our present
situation and to the present hour. He
said: "A policy that would abandon the
Held of home trade must prove disastrous
to the mechanics and worklngmen of the
I'nited States. Wages are unjustly re
duced when an Industrious man is not able
by his earnings to live In comfort, edu
cate his children and save a sufllclent
amount for the necessities of age. The
reduction of wages inevitably consequent
upon the throwing our home market open
to the world would deprive the workmen
of the power to do this. It would prove a
great calamity to our country. It would
produce a conflict between the poor and
the rich and In the sorrowful degradation
of labor would plant the seeds of public
"The nepuhllcan party has steadily
aimed to maintain just relations between
capital and labor guarding with care I he
rights of each. A conflict between the two
bus always led the past ami will always
lead in the future to the injury of bo;h.
(Applause. I Labor is indispensable to l he
creation of profitable use of capital and
capital increases the eillclency und value
of labor. Whoever arrays the one against
the other Is an enemy of both. (Applause.)
That policy is wisest and best which hur
monizes the two on the basis of absolute
Justice. The Republican purty ha pro
tected the free labor of America so that
Its compensation Is laruer than Is real
ized in any other country." (Great ap
plause and cries of "hurruh for McKln
ley.") NO FRER SILVER.
But. my countrymen, as if the business
conditions were not hsd enough and hard
enough to bear, we have thrust upon is
at til's critical time In the business af
fairs of the nation, a proposition to de
base the currency of the country and un
dermine the public credit. We know what
partial free trade has done for the labor
of the 1'nlted States. It has diminished
Its employment and earnings. We do not
propose now to Inaugurate a currency
system that will cheat labor in Its pay.
The laboring men of this country when
ever i hey give one day's work to their
employer, they want to be paid In full
dollars, uood everwhere in the world.
(Great cheering and cries of "MeKinley's
all light.") We want In this country good
work, good wages, und good money. Ap.
plause.) We want lo continue our good
government with its generous privileges
and mutctiess opportunities, and want It
to be a government where law is supreme
over all (cheers) and for tho equal beuellt
of all. (Renewed cheering.)
My fellow-cltlzens. It Is gratifying to me
to lie assured by your spokesman und
my old comrade It will he Inspiring to the
whole country that the voice of labor here
today declines that no party which de
grades ihe honor of the nation, no party
width stands opposed to law ami order,
or which seeks to array the masses against
the classes, shall receive (is voting sup
port. (Great cheering.) We have this
resting upon us as citizens a grave re
sponsibility. The country has never fulled
or faltered In the past to meet everv crisis.
It will not falter or rail ttuv.- to uphold the
dignity and independence uf luiior and the
honor ami stability of the government,
that it may still further exalt the Ameri
can name. (Applause.)
1 thank you over and over again for this
call und for the patiioitc sentiments
which have been eloquently expressed bv
your spokesman. To hive the hearty
support of the worklngmen. Is Indeed an
honor, for which 1 ihunk you In the name
of the cause which I represent, and It is
only another evidence of the wisdom and
strength of five government. May Ood
bring to you and to your homes uhctir und
contentment. (Great applause.)

Buffalo, Sept. 17. The Democratic
state convention adjourned sine die at
2.40 o'clock this afternoon after nomi
nating John Boyd Thacher for gover
nor, William F. Porter for lieutenant
governor, and Robert C. Titus for Judge
of the court of appeals. The platform
endorses the resolutions adopted by the
Chicago convention, and pledges
"hearty and active suoport" to Bryan
and Sew all. It declares that never In
the history of the Democratic party
has a platform been written which em
bodied more completely the Interests
of the whole people, as distinguished
from those who seek legislation for pri
vate benefit, than that given to the
country by the national Democratic
convention of 1KH6." The platform fur
ther denounces the Raines liquor law,
arraigns the administration of Gover
nor Morton and recent Republican
legislatures, charges the administra
tion of the office of superintendent of
public works, by the present Incum
bent, with being notoriously extrava
gant, declares in favor of home rule
for municipalities, protests against the
removal of union soldiers and sailors
from the public service by Republican
officials to make room for political fa
vorites', recommends the building of
good roads, and calls for such a revision
of the employers liability and anti-conspiracy
aws as will secure exaot jus
tice to employes and employer.

When the convention met this morn
ing, Hon. H. H. Rorkwell, of Chemung,
was chosen as permanent chairman.
and after he had delivered an address.

BIG RALLY IN LUZERNE.
Ex-Postmaster General Wanamaker,
State Treasurer Colvio of New York
and W. A. Sbaelfer Speak.
Wilkes-Barre. Pb-, Sept. 17.A big
ratification meeting was held at the
Ninth Regiment armory tonight under
the auspices of the Republican league
of Luzerne county. It was attended
by one of the lurgest crowds ever seen
in this city. Assistant District Attor
ney Henry A. Fuller presided.
Hon. John Wanamaker. of Philadel
phia, was the first to address the audi
ence, and dealt principally with the
necessity for a renewed high tariff, al
lwfcgjj the coinage question took up
nearly an how of. hi address. He
gave some of his experiences .abroad
during the past summer' to show the
American worklngmnn how Infinitely
superior his condition is to that of his
fut-iun fellow laborers. The speaker
cited instances of Austrian women
working at h manual labor for from
27 to 30 cents a uv. w men in the
same country made but f..,, 40 to Eh)
cents a day. He asked the attute.. tf
they were willing to uccept such con
ditions, and a tremendous "no" went
up from every one in the house.
Mr. Wanamaker further pointed out
sun of the fallacies of the free silver
lies' arguments. He predicted the ut
ter defeat of the Bryan forces in No
vember and said that Pennsylvania,
will see Maine's majority and raise il
H to 1. He tendered a very high compli
ment to ex-President Harrison, whose
name was greeted with tremendous ap
plause, and told of the excellent work
Mr. McKlnley had done for the coun
try under Harrison's administration.
The next speaker was A. B. Colvln,
state treasurer of Mew York, who made
a most excellent address. The last
speaker was District Attorney W. A.
Shaeffer, of Delaware county. He said
thut In his town the average loss of
wages since the Cleveland administra
tion begun had been $50,000 a week, and
all the factories are practically closed.
He showed very plainly how the pov
erty of one class affects all others; how,
when the mill men are out of work they
have no money with which to buy coal
and other necessities and general suf
fering is the inevitable result. The
speakers, after the meeting, were en
tertained by the members of the West
moreland club of this city.

AS TO THE LABOR VOTE.
Democratic Managers Alarmed at the
Progress of the tiold Movement.
Washington, Sept. 17. Some of the
managers of the Democratic campaign
have discovered that the tide is turning
against free sliver among men who
work for wages. At one time It -was
thought that certain great bodies of
organized lobor would support the Bry
an ticket and free silver. But the Re
publicans have been actively circulat
ing literature anions; the wage-earn
ers everywhere and they have eudeav
ored to show that free silver will In
no way benefit the wage-earner.
These efforts have been so successful
that the Democratic managers have
become alarmed and at the recent con
ference between Chairmen Faulkner
and Jones It was decided that vigor
ous measures are necessary at once to
counteract the Republican policy. Con
sequently a large portion of the avail
able funds of the Democratic national
committee has been set apart for the
employment of speakers who are
known to have a large following
among wage-earners for the purpose
of having them epeak to the working
