The commanding feature of the day
at Canton was the spontaneous labor
demonstration which took place late
In the afternoon. Four thousand Can
ton worklngmen called on Major Me
Klnley. It was all done quietly and
without ostentutlon. Hundreds of the
men came Just as they left the mills,
the foundries und shops, attired In blue
blouses and overalls and carrying their
tin dinner palls. They arranged 1o
cull themselves, and it was In no sense

applause and he made one of the most
stirring speeches of the campaign.

quoting a paragraph from MeCauley's
history of Knglann, describing the evils
of a debased currency In that country.
A large delegation from Dunkirk, N.
Y were the next visitors.
McKlniey's speech to the delegations
from Krle and Washington counties
was as follows:
You nil understand that this government
is conducted by its leKlHlatlve und r-xecu-tive
departments. If the people of this
country want lo put Into public admin
istration and law any settled pulley th-y
must have both the executive officers n:id
the congress of the United Stales. You
cannot embody your purposes Into law liy
Having one or me oilier we must have
bolli. and 1 trust that the people of IVnn-
sylviiiiiii and (he people of ail the st.iTcs
ot I he I moil will See to It that tne millon
ii I house and Hie senate of the 1'nited
Suites me not neglected at the polls next
In this contest we huve the a d and As
sistance of thousands and tens of thou
sands of Democrats In every part of the
country, who think more of the
honor or the government than
they do of political associations.
We hid them welcome welcome allies In
this great cntliet, for the maintenance of
the public honor. Some people say we
have not enough money. The trouble Is,
my fellow-citizens, we have not enonish
confidence to put In circulation the money
we now nnve. vt e nave just as mueu
money as we ever had in all our history.
and it Is as good as It ever was. but the
trouble is. those who have it are illsiru it
fnl of the future and they won't Invst
It in Industries anil enterprises that give
Employment to labor. Now. what we
want to lo nrsl or all is to restore punlle
and i-rlvate ronlldence: let the whole world
know this. year that this nation proposes
to keep all lis contracts Inviolable ami
continue a currency that is worth a hun
dred cents on the dollar every day and
everywhere. I rend this morning a re
markable statement written by Jlacauley
in his "History of England," which pre
sents In the most striking and Impressive
manner the evil of n debased and fluctuat
ing currency. He says, speaking of a pe
riod in th history of ICngland when the
great instrument of exchange, which was
money, became thoroughly uerangeif, "all
trades, nil industry were smitten as with
palsy. The evil was felt daily and hourly
in almost every place and by almost everv
class, In the dairy mill on the threshing
floor, by the agricultural and by the loom,
on the billows of the ocean and in thu
deplhs of the mines. Nothing could Ml
purchased without a dispute. Over every
counter there was a Wrangling from mora,
ing to night. The workman and his em
ployer had a quarrel as regular as the
Saturday came around. On a fair day or
market day the clamors, the reproaches,
the taunts, the curses were Incessant and it
was well if no booth was overturned ami
no head broken. No merchant would con
tract to deliver goods without some stipu
lation about the 'coin' in which he was
10 be paid. '
"Even men of business were often be
wildered by the confusion Into which all
pecuniary transactions were thrown. The
simple and careless were pillaged without
mercy by extortionists whose demands
grew, even more rapidly than the money
shrank. The price of the necessities of
life, of shoes, of oatmeal rose fast. The
laborer found that the bit of money which,
when he received it. was called a shilling
would hardly purchase a loaf of rye bread
when he wanted it, where artisans of more
than usual intelligence were collected in
great numbers, us in tko dockyards r.t
Chatham, they were able to muke com
plaints heard ami to obtain redress. But
the li-nornnt and helpless peasants were
cruelly ground between one class which
woulc give money only by tale and which
wotilt- take it only by weight. They
counted out the money to the laborer who
could only get rid of It by weight."
Do you want money of that sort In the
United States, my fellow-citizens? (Loud
cries of "no, no, never.1') That Is one
thing In name and another thing In value,
a thing which you take for a dollar ami
which Is tnken from you at whatever its
market value may be In the commercial
centers of the world. No, I answer, for
ever no. If there Is any one thing that
should be honest It Is the money that rep
resents the wealth and labor of the Ameri
can nation. (Continuous cheering.)
Then, my fellow-citizens, we want an op
portunity to earn that money, and the wuv
to do that Is not to do our work In Europe,
but to do It at home.
"The great Empire state la now re
spected everywhere for her free. Inde
pendent and powerful voice in the coun
cils of the nations. She stands proudly
erect this year for eountry. patriotism
and national honor. (Ureat applause).
She refuses to wear a party yoke, which
would lead to national dishonor or re
pudiation. The glorious old flag Is her
only banner. She refuses to march un
der any other, and I am told that from
1 1 e buttery to. Forty-second street In
i lie great city of the country "old glory"
wuvei her spotless stripes and itain-
, less start upon every block and square,
appealing for national honor and exhal
tation of the American name. It is a
sight which Inspires the young and
makes the old young again. Let it
wave, holy banner of the free. (Ap
plause). It was never Btalned In de
feat, and it never will be. (Great cheer
ing). It was never lowered In dishonor,
nnd never will be. (Renewed cheer
ing). And the government whose se
curity and honor IS enshrined upon
every fold and emblazoned upon every
star, will not be lowered or dishonored.
(Continued cheering).
"There is one thing the people of this
country will not to that of the
savings of the poor shall be squandered
and wasted by a depreciation of the
hard earned money which they have
luiil uslde as the result of their thrift
and economy. (Applause und cheers
and cries of 'good.')
"Let me tell you what I think If n
better, a safer and more honornble
policy. Let us restore the protective
tariff system and pay as we go. (En
thusiastic cheering nnd 'hurrah for Me
Klnley.') Protection favors the United Slates
it ii tl the Hug of the United States. (Ap
plause. It favors the people of the
United States und is the true friend of
every American girl and boy struggling
upward. It builds up so it never tears
down. If you favor the restoration of
prosperity, the honest payment of our
debts, the fulfillment of our obliga
tions und the continuation of otlr high
rank and importance among the great
nations of the wot Id, men nf New York,
1 bid you tso weeks from next Tues

Brothers of Philadelphia.
Philadelphia. Oct. l.V Judgment
against the firm of Hexter Brothers,
manufacturers and wholesale dealers In
clothing, this city, was entered today
for $81,000.
The firm is composed of Samuel nnd
Esther Hexter, and the creditors are
mostly In New York and Philadelphia.
The liabilities. It is announced, will
reach about $170,000. The failure Is said
to be due to stringency In the money
market, which caused the banks to cur
tail accommodations. The house Is an
old and reputable one, arid Its credit
has never been questioned heretofore.
The firm was credited with a capital
of $:'00,000. Tho assets are not known.

Letter from Assistant Secretary Cnstis
to-Hon. C. W. Dabney.
The Terms Used by Heated Cnmpnign
Orators and Writers Are Somewhat
Misleading When Applied to Our
HankersThey Are Not Anxious
That Gold Shall Leave the Country.
Washington, Oct. 15. Assistant Sec
retary W. E. Curtis, of the treasury
department, whose duties have brought
him Into frequent communication with
the shippers of gold, returned from New
York today, gave out for publication a
long ollicial letter addressed to Hon.
Charles W. Dabney, jr., assistant secre
tary of agriculture.
In his letter Mr. Curtis says: "Refer
ring to your letter and our conversa
tion of yesterday coneerning the cam
paign attacks upon the bankers of New
York in their relations with the gold
reserve, 1 desire to submit the following
"The term 'raids by bunkers at New
York upon the treasury' is one fre-
liieiilly used by writers and speukers
who have not accurate knowledge of
the met hud from which notes lire pre
sented for redemption at the sub-treus-ury
in New York, or the character or
number id' persons milking such pres
entations. The term bunker seems to
lie assumed in most cuses to cover a
class of men who are apparently en
gaged in withdrawing gold from Hie
government's reserve and putting it
away in iheir private vuults for their
own sellish purposes and to accomplisli
certuin alleged improper objects. The
facts in the case are so different from
these fanciful statements that it seems
worth while lo call attention to them.
"liy operation of. certuin natural
commercial luws. without the interfer
ence of legislation New York has conn
to be the settling place of almost all
contracts for the sale of our products
mill In that market bill of exchange,
which represents products exported, are
offered for sale. At the same time
people desiring to remit money abroad
to pay obligations or to buy merchan
dise, are in the same market, and In
order to pay their obligations pur
chase these bills of exchange to remit
to their creditors abroad. The natural
results is that when we are selling our
goods abroad there are more bills of
exchange in the market than there is
demand for. which is the case at pres
ent, the price of exchange falls. On
the other hand, when we are not sell
ing as much abrond, and nre buying
more or are paying our debts to a
greater extent abroud the price of ex
change rises.
The people engaged in the banking
business in New York may be divided
Into three classes: First, the officers
of the regular banks at deposit or Is
sue. Including the national hanks; sec
ond, the dealers In securities, some of
whom s have foreign connections
through whom they market a '-irge
amount of securities and upon whom
they draw a corresponding amount of
exchange In payment for securities
sold abroad, and to. whom they remit
exchange or gold In payment for se
curities sold here: third, agencies, or
branches of foreign houses, who are
perhaps nlso dealers In securities, but
whose main business Is buying and
selling exchange on Europe for the
profit which can be mnde in tho opera
tion itself.
"The first class nre especially Inter
ested in the general prosperity of the
country and in keeping up the value
of securities, because If there Is a fall
In securities held by them as collateral
they are compelled to call In their out
standing louns, which reduces their
lines of credit, diminishes their profits,
prevents them from discounting com
mercial paper, restricts mercantile and
industrial enterprise, and In the end
creates failures in business and gen
eral financial and commercial distress.
The second class are directly Inter
ested in keeping up the value of se
curities in this eoustrV which they
huve largely sold abroad and their In
terests are to avoid gold exports and
the public apprehension arising from
n reduction of the gold reserve. The
third class buy or sell exchange when
ever an opportunity for profit offers.
The leading members of the third class
in New iork can be numbered on the
fingers of both hands, and. in fact.
three or four do almost all of the with
drawing of gold for export purposes, as
will be seen by an examination of the
list of parties exporting gold to Europe
published In the Dally press during its
continuance. It will thus be seen that
a great majority of the bankers are
pecuniarily Interested in keeping the
gold reserve up to. its full amount, and
for this reason they have been willing
In the past and are still willing to
make considerable sacrifices, and in
order to prevent shipments of gold
nave- contributed large amounts of
money to pay a dealers In foreign ex
change the profit they would have
made by such shipments. This was
notably the case In the operations of
the so-called syndicate which bought
the bonds of the government under the
contract of Feb. 8, 1895, and again in
the early part of this summer.
"Although withdrawals for export
have been going on for several years
It Is only within two years that an
apprehension that the government
might be unable to redeem Its obliga
tions in gold has caused withdrawals
for any other purpose, and at no time
has there been any evidence that with
drawals of gold from the treasury was
made for the purpose of affecting the
market. The contraction In the active
currency Is caused by the large In
crease in the balance of the United
Slates treasury arising from the bonds
Issued and from the hoarding of gold
and of notes redeemable In gold, which
have been going on among the peo
ple for some time In view of a pos
sible failure of the United States to
continue their payment In gold.
"It must not be forgntten that the
confidence in the situation which has
placed the country in its present sat-
isfactorv condition -nirut-.llir u .,.i.i
reserve wus largely due to the efforts
ui ins ounsers ot new Xork in the
early summer.

Agricultural Department's Report
Shows It Is Heavy.
Washington, Oct. 15. The October
fruit rpnort nf thir Aorlpultiiral donapfr.
ment shows a heavy apple crop and aa
especially fine qaulity In the northern
tier of states. Prices are extremely
low. This is particularly the case in
Michigan, .where the markets are glut
ted. The disastrous storm of the last
week in September did much damage
to fruit along the Atlantic coast. The
loss was particularly heavy In parts of
Pennsylvania and New York. Some
complaint of the dropping of fruit
comes from the middle west.
The October returns on hops show
increase In New York nnd Wisconsin
nnd heavy decreases In the. Pacific
states. There is a languishing condi
tion of the hop growing Industry, par
ticularly In the latter region. Many
yards throughout the country have
been neglected, and a part of the crop
will not be harvested. The contirii'd
lew price Is the reason for this neg
lect. The report say that. In vie.v
of the grent increase In the production
of malt liquor, this condition of things
ought not to exist, and adds:
"it Is, however, but another instance
of the injury to the farming Industry
brought about through the subs'tutl l
of chemical for the more healthful agri
cultural agent in manufacture, w'reh
seems the inevitable trend of invention."

Adolphus Coben Coles Nabbed by Offi

But iu 1804, It Is Alleged, He Skipped
Out with the Available Funds of the
Bank and Sailed fur Italy-Recog-uized
by His Old Partner, Who
Is Now a Day Laborer.
Philadelphia, Oct. 15. Adolphus Co
hen Coles, at one time a banker of 211
Canal street, New York, and an al
leged absconder with $150,UUU was ar
rested this afternoon by Detective
Donaghy In the Broad street station of
the Pennsylvania railroad. The detec
tive was assisted In the arrest by Al
fred De Mayo, of this city, an Italian
Interpreter; Leonard Morrelli, the late
partner of Coles, and John Diu, an
Italian citizen.
Morrelli was In a cigar store; when
he was surprised at seeing Coles en
ter. He hud not seen him since De
cember 24, 1SS4, when he alleges Coles
got away with $500,000 which belonged
to 155 Italian bunking houses In New
York and Pennsylvania. When Coles
left the cigar store Morrelli, being un
able to speak English fluently, followed
his man to the railroad station In com
pany with interpreter De Mayo and
John Din. De Mayo then hurried to
the city hall, where he secured the ser
vices of Detective Donaghy while the

the work of a few minutes to place him
under arrest. When searched 2G0 were
found in Colo's pockets.
Coles was arraigned before Magis
trate South und was committed to
