K"t. We don't believe In waiting

successfully that way; therefore, as

is over, we set about unloading in a
methodical way, and as a result the

never one (Jay behind the best that
the Metropolis has to offer and is
quite free from goods of other days

BRYAN AT MINNEAPOLIS.
Crowds Fought for Admission lo the
Hall in Which the Boy Orator
SpokeReceived by Ladies.
Minneapolis. Minn.. Oct. 12 Perfect
Indian summer weather, neither too
cnol nor too warm, aided ihe Minne
apolis supporters of William J. Bryan
tonight to out-do the efforts of their
brethren of Si. Paul In giving a rotts- i
ing welcome to the Democratic stand-
aril-bearer. Like their political friends
of their sister city, they had arranged
for no less than four speeches by Mr.
Hrynn and fortune was with them
again in this, for the Chicago nominee
felt strong of voice and body after his
two days of rest and was able to speak
with his old-time vigor. Minnesota
women do not have the right of suf
frage except in school elections, but a
special meeting for their benefit for as
many of them as could crowd Into the
Lyceum tlvater, was addressed by Mr.
Bryan. That was the untiiue feature
! of the Minneapolis demonstration. Tho
I principal addtess by the nomlnee.how.
ever, was delivered at the exposition
building and the others In the open ab
ut Bridge s'liiure. on the Missouri river
front, adjacent to the exposition hail,
and again at Yale Dace. He will
travel to Dill nth tomorrow to give aid
to Congressman Charles A. Towne. a
silver man and Protection Republican,
who is making a fight for re-election.
Crowds began to gather about tho
exposition building a roupl" of haum
before the hour set for Mr. Bryan's ap
pearanre there 7.) o'c lock. Two hund
red old soldiers composing the Veteran 4
Bryan Club, of Minmapolle formed the
escort of the candidate from the West
Hotel to the Auditorium. When they ar
rived at the entrance to the building
with their charge an Interesting scene
was taking place there. Those who hal
been unable to obtain admittance had
become a struggling, excited mob. Wo
men were shrieking and men were
shouting. They could move neither uut
nor In, and Jka- a while a paniw seemed
imminent. It was only by the combined
efforts of the police and those with him
that Mr. Bryan wSs forced through th?
crowd and enabled to enter the build
ing. It was supposed that Mr. Bryan
would have something to say about
Archbishop Ireland's letter against the
Chicago ticket and platform, but lie
made no reference to If. He did, how
ever, talk about another distinguished
Minnesotan, Hon. O. Washburn, on the
basis of u letter received from the ex
senator and groans und cheers were
frequent during his reply to the weul
thy miller. The emotional, excited
throng outside tbe exposition building
had beoome tired of pushing, shoving
und elbowing and had drifted o!T In
segments to the adjacent bridge square
to Join the great crowd already gath
ered there. It wus to these that Mr.
Hi. van delivered his second address
from a balcony on the exposition build
ing. His audience . was estimated ut
The Indies' meeting nf the Lyceum
came next. Klght was the hour set for
Mr. Hryiio's appearance, but he was
more than an hour lute. Mis. Kryau

over by .Mrs. '. M. Sehaefer. whose
husband's father was the law partner
for twenty-one years of Mr. rlryan's
father nt Salem, ills. When she pre
sented tile cainliiliile Ihe ladies shrieked
and waved an emotional welcome. The
lust address was at Yale Place, where
another crowd had gathered.
The speech of the evening was that
delivered at tile Auditorium. There
was little in It that was new except the
answer In Senator Washburn.
GLASS W'ORKbRS STRIKE.
Settlement of the Trouble Now A p.

Millville, N. .1., Ocl. 12. A settlement
I niiiiuig the glass workers and munurac

tlement of I lie i .i i en glass blowers last
week has aided more than anything in
bringing about a settlement. A meet
ing will be held ut Pittsburg on Wed
nesday of this week, when it Is highly
probable that the glass blowers anil
manufacturers will .come to some un
derstanding. A member of the wage committee to
day stated that the workmen might
accept a cut of ten per cent. On lurge
ware and six per cent, on small ware,
making an average of eight per rent.
The fJreen glass blowers settled on a
cut of five per cent, and the flint scale
varies very little from the green.

The largest fire that ever occurred here,
began at 10 o'clock tonight In a tene

The fire soon involved the Kenedy hotel
and stables, the Miller house stables
and a large brick block in Railroad

the Hollenbeck block and the Miller
House are now burning.
The wind is blowing a gale from the
north and It Is feared the tire will cross

side. Conservative estimates place the
present loss at $200,000, well insured.

Canton. O., Oct. 12. Major McKinley
this morning expressed himself as be
ing in the very best of health and spir
its and In every way well prepared for
another week of hard work Incident
upon the reception of the great mass of
visiting delegations. Over thirty dele
gations are expected to engage the ma
jor's attention during the week, and
they will come from a dozen different
states. .There were two delegations
scheduled for today. Both were from
Pennsylvania, nnd represented the min
ers of the Mononncahela valley and the
workmen of Ifoscoe. Pa. The Pennsyl
vania, to the number of about fiOfl,
arrived on a special train of eleven
coaches at 1 o'clock. They came from
the following towns in ''the fouith
pool" of the Mnnongahela Valley: char
leioi. Mount Vernon, Fayette City, Hos
coe, Coal Centre, California and
Many ladies accoinp.unied the excur
sionists. The rain which had been fall
ing more or less heavily at Intervals
during the morning, came down very
hard Just ns the Pennsylvanians ar
rived. All outdoor demonstrations
were therefore abandoned and the vis
itors were escorted to the Tabernacle.
A colored glee club hud Just begun to
sing1 some cumpaign selections when
Major McKinley entered the hall. In
stantly every man in the audience was
on his feet and cheering at the top of
his voice. Major McKinley has never
been greeted with a more emphatic
welcome than that of the miners and
others from the Mnnongahela valley.
Hon. Oec.'ge V. Lawrence, who has
represented the district whence came
this enthusiastic delegation, for several
t'-rnis in congress, acted ns spokesman,
Mr. Lawrence Is over eigVy years .f
.15". ar.d. a petsonal friend of Major
M Kinley. In his remarks hit suld the
delegation represented tho mltictv.. me
chanics and professional men of ail
cl.-ii-ses In the counties of Washington.
V 'eslmorelnnd and Fayetw. When th?
speaker referred to Major MeKle!ey as
the next president of the United States
there was a tremendous outburs'. of ap
pl.iuse. APPRECIATED BY LABORING MEN
"The Inboring men in Pennsylvania,
in our district, are your best friends,"
continued Mr. Lawrence. "They have
seen the splendid prosperity for which
you struggled so long and hard, built
up only to be thrown down bv the In
fliction of the trade principles Cf the
Democratic party. The laboring classes
have hoped In you and believe that
your election will restore that prosper
ity to them." (
The ex-congressrnnn then presented
Major McKinley with a gold-mounted
cane made from the wood of a door of
the house in which James G. Blaine was
born. The cane was the gift of the
Republican club of Fayette City.
Another cane made of glass, the gift
of the glass-workers of Belle Verno,
was also presented to the candidate.
Responding to the address of Mr.
Lawrence, Major McKinley said:
MAJOR M KINLEVS REMARKS.
it gives me sincere pleasure to meet at
my li.iine citizens of Fayette, Washington
m.d Westmoreland counties, Pennsylva
nia, and make acknowledgment of their
friendly visit. Western Pennsvlvaniu is
tilled with many proud and historical
memories, it registers the blrlhpluee cf
l lull splendid parliamentarian and giri'-d
statesman und great secretary of stale,
James G. Ulailie. (Tremendous cheer
ing!. It Is very gratifying to me to ic
celve from Ihe hands of Ihe Fayette club
Mils beautiful eune made from llie wood of
.Mr. Blaine's home In which he whs bnin
in llrownsvllle und I ussure I hem it sltull

came the tlisl secretary of the treasury
iiniter Thomas Jefferson in 1KUI and who
lilled I inn great olflee for twelve years,
and Is known In the history of our country
as one ol' the greatest secretaries we ever
hud, rating with Alexander Hamilton.
He wus a member of your legislature from
Fayette county, a member of the national
house or representatives from Western
Pennsylvania, for a brief pciod in the ven
ule of tbe I'nited Stales and wus then
culled to till the great otllce or secretary or
lie treasury. For three years and a half
tin- Koveriimeiil bus been bororwing money
to live upon and the people have been do.
lint likewise very largely. We want, my
fellow citizens, somehow to stop that,
both as to government und people. We
inuy not be able to do It ut once.
TIM-J POLICY TO ADOPT.
When we are sick It lakes a long time to
recover our normal vitality. But there
ouglitio be no question that there rests
upon the American people and those in
charge of public affairs to adopt some pol
icy and that right speedily which would
first provide enough money to run the
government of the ratted Slates. We
oimht not to resort to the Issuing of bonds
in lime of peace except to preserve the
credit und honor of the government. (Ap
pluuse!. Thut opens the question as to
what policy will suve us from that. (A
voice: "A protective policy.") 1 adopt
the suggestion. I do not know of any
thing thut will do it better thun protection.
For it Is a proud fact in American history
thut in all the years at least for the most
part under which we have had a protec
tive tariff, we have always had ample
revenues to conduct the expenses of Ihe
(government. (Applause!. Now, that pol
icy wisely and judiciously applied in pub
lic law is one of the Hint and most Impor
tant acts of the president to perform.
They cannot perform it, however, without
u Republican congresa und a Republican
administration. The only power that can
make a protective tariff congress resides
in the American people and the only power
that can make a protective tariff adminis
tration resides In the American people.
By your ballots three weeks from tomor
row you In conjunction with your fellow
citizens in every part of the country will
determine whether or not that policy shall
prevail for the next four years. What
will your answer be, men of Pennsylvania?
(Cries of "for McKinley and protection,"
and cheers). My fellow citizens, I am in
favor of that policy for another reason
because while it provides adequate reve
nue for the government, it encourages the
industries and occupations of the Ameri
FREE SILVER FALLACY.
There is a notion In some quarters what
we need to bring about prosperity is free
sllvcr.I do -not believe It would be any
freor under free coinage to you than It is
now. There would be just one way for the
workingman to get it and that would be
to earn it. There would he just one way
for the farmer to get It and that would be
to sell his products. There would be just
one way for the merchant to get it the
old fashioned way which would be to sell
his good over hts counter and give some,
thing for the money he gets. That U the
only way you could get It If we coined all
the silver of the world. Besides did It ever
occur to you that money does not make
work. Work makes money, (Great ap
Olaute.) There Is just as much money it
this country today as there was from M70
to 1880, and more. But what is the trou
ble? (Cries of "No work no work.") Y,
no work. It Is work that puts money into
circulation. (Money does not want to be
idle any more than labor wants to be idle.
The man who has money wants thut
money to be eurnlng soisthiug und Ihe
only reason he does not put it out now Is
because he is afraid that he will never get
it buck, or get it back In a depreciated
currency. The money thut will buy most
Is the money you want und what you want
now Is an opportunity lo earn it. (Great
You cannot earn It through the mints,
but through 'the mills and mines, the fac
tories und by honest toil. We can only do
tbe best we know how In this world. We
can only follow the light as God gives us
lo see Ihe light, 1 believe, my fellow citi
zens, thut with returning confidence und
confidence is half the capital of the world
money will come out from lis hiding
place, be invested In enterprises all over
the country and put all Idle men to work;

which will most surely restore confidence.
MR. QUAY'S ESTIMATE.
Two Hundred and Seventy Electoral
Votes for McKinley and Ilobnrt.
New York, Oct. 12. The following
statement wag given out at National
Republican headquarters today after a
conference of the entire executive com
mittee: The election of McKinley and Hobart is
an accomplished and assured fact. They
will receive 27u electoral votes. Bryan will
receive llii and there are six states having
Wxtv-sewen elontoral votes which are
doubtful, but the probabilities all point
to the tact that these sixty-seven voles
will go inlo the Republican column, and be
mldcd to the 271! now- assured for McKin
ley and Hoburt. This is the stutns. We
have the election und will hold it. Our
present effort In the west Is to this end.

NOT COUNTY OFFICERS.
Candidates for the Legislature Need Not
File Nomination Papers with tbe
Harrisburg, Pa., Oct. 12. The ques
tion having been raised as to whether
or not a member of the legislature Is a
state officer and whether his certificate
of nomination should be filed with the
secretary of the commonwealth or the
county commissioners, an opinion by
Judge Mc-Pherson, of the Dauphin coun
ty court, which has final jurisdiction in
these matters, has been unearthed.
In 1SH4 in a rase stated he says a
member of the legislature whose official
duty Is to share the making of laws,
and who thus may exercise power over
the whole area of the state, nnd may
effect every resident and every proper
ty interest therein, is certainly not a
county or district oltlcer. He Is so ob
viously an officer of the state that ar
gument would only cloud tho certainty
with which the mind assents to this
proposition. Nevertheless section five
of the ballot law of 1S91 requires his
certificate to be filed with the secretary
of the commonwealth.
Carload of Witnesses Exnmined in
Harrisburg, Oct. 12. The objections
of C. L. Magee and James E. O'Donnell
to each other's certificates of nomina
tion lu the Firty-third senatorial dis
trict, were heard by Judges Simon ton
and McPherson this afternoon. There
was a carload of witnesses.
The court has made a decree in the
matter of the objections of George A.
Vare to the certificate of Senator
George Handy Smith, declaring Vare's
certilicnte valid and that of Smith In
valid. This was a perfunctory proceed
ing, Senator Smith having withdrawn.
No opinions In contested nomination
cases were handed down today.
