.Mnjor JlcKinley's Remarks Ke
crived With Demonstrations of Ap
proval-Tlurty Delegations Sched
uled to Arrive Today.
Canton, O., Oct. 1C The first delega
tion to call on Major McKinley this
morning was a party of businessmen,
farmers and miners from Pennsylva
nia. They represented Bradford, Hust
on, Carbon, Northampton, Luzerne?,
Lehigh and Wyoming. Congressman
J. H. Codding, of Towamla, acted as
spokesman. In responding Major Mc
Kinley spoke at some length upon the
advantage to miners of a settled tariff
policy backed up by n sound and stable
currency. These conditions, together
with the return of confidence to the
business world, lu contended, would
restore the prosperity to the country
that had been destroyed by the enact
ment of the Wilson tariff bill.
ENCE. Major McKinley said In part:
The way to restore conlldenee Is to have
a settled turilY policy thut will enable the
mnnufneturers of this country to know
just whut their competition will be abroad
unit then prepare for It. Then, more than
that, we want to have u currency In this
country that Is unchangeable in value and
eiiul 10 the best money In the world. tV'e
want everybody in and out of this country
lo know that we are not a nation of Ke
pudiaturs (applause!, and thut wc do not
mean either lo cheat ourselves by a short
doll ir or anybody else. (Great upplimso.)
our dollars heretofore ns now, and ever
since 1K7H, shall continue to be worth 1W
cents each in uohl, uml not only at home,
but wherever trade goes. What you want
is the dollar that you have now and the
only trouble that you arc not getting
enough of them und the reason you are not
getting enough of them Is because you
have not work enough. Now, whatever
will put our people to work Is the true,
patriotic nnd American policy, and the
one which by your votes on the third day
of November j ou call determine upon, for
nobody determines a thing for the Ameri
can people but the American people them
Seven Hundred Voters From the Oil
Regions Anions the Visitors.
Cunl.m.O., Oct. 16. West Virginia !
sent a line delegation of 700 voters to
Canton today. They came from the oil
producing town of Sistervllle and tho
counties of Wetzel and Tyler. Tho El
kins Invluclbles, a marching club of 400,
wearing gold hals and coats, were with
the delegation and formed an Important
part of It. Major McKinley made one
of the most exhaustive speeches to
Southern voters that he has delivered
this campaign. It was received with
marked demonstrations of approval.
He said:
The polic y of protection to American
farms, industiy, enterprise anil labor, is
o broad national policy. It has not a
tinge of sectionalism In It; it is sound in
truth and wholesome In practice. It is not
narrow and provincial, but wide In lis
blessings and its beneiits, always promot
ing Industrial growth, serving national
ends, rewarding individual efforts and ad
vancing the Just aspirations and hopes of
Ihe American people. It is the doctrine of
true patriotism; the welfare of our coun
try and countrymen lirst; our home und
our families llrst, an ardent, sincere nnd
genuine Americanism that loves our Hag
better than any other and would rather
subserve our own interests than the in.
terests of any other people, or of any other
nation of the world. It is not the plea of
one state against another, or any group
or section of states against another; but It
Is for tho benefit of all a policy that In
jures no American interests, but pro
motes them all, "It is only perfect when
universal," and It Is only under thin prin
ciple that the Republican party advo
cates its restoration. The wisdom of your
orators who used to talk to you was that
the tariff was a good thing for the Ohio
farmer and laborer, but a nosltlve detri
ment to the West Virginia farmer and ia-
norer; as ir it coum oenent tne miner oi
Pennsylvania but injure the miner of West
Virginia; as if the wheat and grain grow
er in Kansas, or the best producer of Ne
braska would grow rich by Its operations
and the cotton and sugar planters of Tex.
as and Louisiana become Impoverished
under it. Time and ugain you have heard
them declare that while protection must be
u good thing for the north, It was a etirso
to the west and the south. You know bet.
ler now after havine had thrpe venrs and
a half experience under partial free trade. I
(Great upplause.) In vain did Republican
speakers and papers remonstrate ugaii st !
this business, but of no avail; and so Iho j
people guvo It a trial. With what result?
Is It not true that uartlul free trade has ,
injured us one and all? Is It not true that
partial free trnde has Injured every inle--st
and every Industry in West Virginia?
Have not the people and the government
grown steadily poorer under its destruc
tive operations? Have not the producer
and consumer been injured?
The southern. In common with all the
other status, steadily advanced under the
protective system, if there was a differ
ence between them and the northern
states, it was In their favor steadily every
year from 1S70 to IH'M. simply because their
resources were greater and their devel
opment more general and rapid. In Aug
ust, IKS!!, eight years ago, 1 delivered an ad
dress before the Piedmont Chautauqua
association of Atlanta, Ga., in which 1
endeavored to point out to thq people of
that and other southern states the great
advantage It would be to their
interests to sustain and advocate the pro.
lectlve policy and In that connection cited
the statistics of advancement of the south
under the American protective system as
the best possible argument for Its con
tinued enforcement. Imposing as had
been the progress from 1870 to 1880, tho
growth of the south from 1SSU to 1S90 Is
still more remarkable.
Major McKinley then called atetntiun
to the statistics quoted by Gen. James.
Longstreet in a Hpeech at Augusta,
Ga., on the 9th day of the present
month, showing the Increase In prop
erty valuations, manufacturing and
general investment and continued:
This, my fellow-citizens, all occurred
after the so-called crime ofr 1873, when
the free coinage of sliver was suspended.
No other section of this country, no other
section of the world made such progress
as the south made between 1880 and 1890
and during all that period we were on a
Bold basis, one dollar being as good as ev
ery other dollar and all of them equal
to the best; nt the same time we were un
der a protective tariff policy that encour
aged our own development and the In
crease of our own manufactures. Do you
want to turn your backs upon that policy,
men of West Virginia 7 Do you want a re
turn of that prosperity which you so sig
nally enjoyed from 1880 to 1890? (Cries of
"we do.")
Then, my fellow-citizens, the way to ac
complish that is to vote for that party
not for the individual but to vote tor
that party that has always stood for a
protective tariff and believes In protecting
our own against all the world. This has
been the principle now and our party be.
lleves now, and It has always believed,
that the business of this country must ba
done with dollars that are worth 100 cents
In every state of the Union and In every
pert o? the civilised world.

Indianapolis. Oct. 16. Private tele
grams received from Hon. Simon P.
Sherin, ex-secretary of the Democratic
national committee, state that he has
renounced allegiance to the Bryan
Sewall ticket.
He does not regard the platform as
Democratic; he thinks Bryan Is a
Populist and not a Democrat: he does
not believe the cause of free silver will
win. The recent fusion of Populists
in Indiana Is, however, what caused
him to Anally make up his mind to
quit the party.

Ilig Loan Not Authorized by Trus

Clnclnati. Oct. 16. In the United
States court today Judge Sage an
nounced a decision which becomes a
precedent of great interest to bankers
and other business men.

al bank, borrowed $300,000 from the
Chemical National bank of New York
city, March 2, 1SS7, to place in the

Stale Department Discovers Flaws in
the Baker Ballot Law.
Harrlsburg, Pa Oct. 16. The state
department has discovered an import
ant omission in the Baker ballot law,
section 14, of the aet of 1891, requiring
county commissioners to print on the
ballot the names and residence of can
didates, but section 14 of the aet of
1S93, a substitute for the original law
omits the requirement about residences.
Under the last administration the state
department omlted residences from
the official ballot sent to the county
commlslsoners and Secretary Reeder
followed this precedent last year.
In section 9 of the act of 1893, the
residence requirement as to the ballot
was not stricken out as was intended
and after consultation with the attor
ney general It was decided at the state
deartment today to certify the official
ballot to the county commissioners
with names and residences of candi
dates. This will not affect the county
commisioners as they are not required
to print the residences on the ballot.

try to do so." Then he said:
"Gentlemen, I am very much obliged
to you for this visit, and very sorry
that It Is not in my power to comply
with the request you have come here to
make. The reasons why I am not able
to do so, I think, are tolerably well
understood by the public. My business!
has been so arranged as to permit m
to make a few speeches in my own

would not be possible for me to go else

your invitation to go to Baltimore, but
one or two things have been suggested
by the addresses just made about which
I would like to say a very few words

he and his family ought to live In, .it
is his duty to vote for the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio
of lfi to 1. (Cheers.) If there Is any
laboring man In the United Stales who
has saved money out of his earnings
and has deposited It In a savings bank
or building association or paid it on a
policy of life Insurance for Ihe bone
fit of his family, and who desires to
have it paid back to him in a cur
rency worth about half as much an
the money he paid out, he ought also
to vote for the free and unlimited coin
age of silver, for that will give him
exactly what he wants. On the other
hand, every man in the United States,
whether he works for wages or not, who
waits to preserve the value of what
he has already accumulated, and to
Insure tho value of what hr may here
after receive, ought to vote against
the free and unlimited coinage 'of sil
ver and for the maintenance of a sound
and Btable currency in this country.
While every man who works for
wages or receives a fixed compensation
for his services must be deeply In
terested In the result of the pending
contest, those men who work for rail
road companies and other transporta
tion companies, many of whom reside
in your city, and some of whom are
perhaps here, have a special interest In
the questions involved, because their
employers are confronted by a situa
tion which mukes It Impossible to soon
increase wages as to compensate for
the dhnlnshed purchasing power of the
money In which wagees must be paid
If the policy of free coinage of silver
at the ratio of 16 to 1 Is adopted. Theso
companies cannot Increase wages un
less they can Increase the receipts from
their business; they cannot increase
the receipts from their business unless
they can Increase the charges for car
rying freight and passengers, and if
they should attempt to increase the
charges for carrying freight and pas
sengers, it is safe to say that the very
men, the very people who are now most
clamorous for the free coinage of silver
would be the first to protest against
it nnd demand legislation to prohibit
it in all cases where such legislation is
not already existing. (Applause.) The
man, therefore, who works for a trans
portation company would find himself
the helpless victim of a pulley which
dhnlnshed the purchasing power of his
wages about one half and compelled
him to work on and on for the same
number of dollars he received before,
thus destroying all hope of Improve
ment of his condition. But, gentlemen,
the laboring men have their fate in
their own hands. They have the power
to protect their wages against the de
predation and to protect their country
against financial disturbance and ruin,
and if they are us intelligent and pa
triotic 1 believe them to be they will
so exercise their power that no reckless
agitator will hereafter dare to approach
them In behalf of this wild and revolu
tionary scheme of finance and civil
government. (Prolonged applause.)
Now gentlemen, I thank you again
for this visit, and 1 tender to each and
every one of you my best wishes for
his prosperity in whatever calling he
may hereafter be engaged."
