Major McKinlcy addressed his callers as follows: I nm Kind to greet and welcome you this morning. I have never believed, as siiine people have been saying, that there ever whs nnv dinger about the state ol Michigan. There lias never been a mo ment of time when I had the slightest iloulit where the electoral vole of yo-ir glorious state would go ill the presiden tial contest of lMHi. No stale in the I moil is move deeply interested in the KUiuiiic American policy that will protect your property, your interests, your labor, your mines, the products of your forests from undue competition from the other sl'le than the state of Michigan, and there Is no suite thai is more deeply interested in haviiiii a protective policy than the state if Michigan. (Applause.) Tin re H one thing thai the Republican party Is dedicated to, and that is labor llrst," I hen to law and order; thfse are in. dispensable to the welfare of mankind and indispensable to the prosperity and the permanency of the Republic.

Major McKinley seldom faced a more enthusiastic audience than this one of Pennsylvania workiugmen, and lie spoke with uncommon earnestness, tie said : Tills Is a year of true nm genuine pa triotism. This is a year which registers a revival of true Americanism. Rivers do not divide us; mountains cannot sepa rate us; suite iines and sectional lines are all olilitetated. and lids year we sla.el ' unitedly lor the American union, the ! American honor and glorious old Ptars I'an.l Ktriots. (Ureal ebeerlim.l Two weeks from next Tuesday I he people of tills cmiii trj will cxerclsd that majestic sovereign ly which Is peculiar to no other nation lint ours. J l is dilllcult to meusure the full force of a national election, of its mighty power for good or 111. It deter mines policies and udminlst rations and legislation affecting every Industry of I he country. Its power is both appalling and Insnlriiig. if we needed any demonstration of the mighty effect of such an election as Is to occur two weeks from next Tuesday, it :a furnished 111 that of 1C when from sun rise to sunset, on Nov. , the people changed the administration, not in tier son merely, but in purpose. That election was a verdict for a new policy which w:is opposed to that which had prevailed f ir the greater part of the lifetime of the Re public. The nation stood In dread sileli ill fenr of its own verdict, nnd with all tlio rejoicing there was much foreboding. .l"n looked Into the future with fear and ap prehension. Orders for machinery were cancelled; contracts were annulled; buy ing nnd selling was curtailed; plans which had been formed for the extension of business were abandoned; works al ready built were not equipped with ma chinery: doubt nnd uncertainty hung over the country. Have I overdrawn the pic ture? (Cries of "No!") Did we appre ciate the full force of that great national election and the effect of our individual votes upon its result, and of the result on the country (Cries of "No!" I fear not. I speak of this, not to recall the past, which Is beyond our recall, but rather to emphasize the seriousness of a national election. Its vital and supreme Importune", to the end that we may realize the sacred and valued Interests which are Involved In a popular election under our form of government. .More inllntely more Is Involved in the contest of 1WG thnn In the contest of W.U. grave and serious as It was. We have all at issue that was then Involved, and more. Then It was only a question of the prin'-l-ple of taxation which should govern us. about which honest men might fairly dif fer, but about which there is less differ ence now than then. Now the serious question is involved of all statutes, of ev ery form of property, real, personal and mixed; wages In shops. In mines and on the farms; Investments In building and loan associations and savlgs hanks: the value of every trust estate; the endow ment of every college and charity, every salary and income: the savings of frugal toil, the inheritance of the helpless minor children, and the pension of every soldier and sailor or their widows and orphans, are Involved, and will be affected by the votes of the American people two weeks from next Tuesday. (Applause.) Kvery one of these vital interests Is assailed. Not one of them escapes. My fellow-clllzens, shnll the assault be successful? (Crle of "No, never1.") Two hundred citizens of Huntingdon county, Pennsylvania, were the next callers. Judge Williamson Introduced them to Major McKinley, who made a short address. TRAVELING MEN IN LINE. The ninth speech was made to one of the largest delegations of the day. It was composed of traveling men from Columbus and Toledo, O. Several bands and the Columbus Glee club were with it. J. Fenimore spoke in be half of the Columbus Commercial Travelers, and E. K. Dow for the To-1-do in ep. Major McKinley made a j r i gir;$ i tpnonse, saying: IVju have discovered In the last four yea vg that It 1 a good deal safer to consult market! than maxims. (Laughter and ap plause.) You have discovered that prices current ami actual exnerlenee in trade and commerce is a better guide to business prosperity than anything you can lind In the books. Your coming together. Demo, crats and Republicans (a voice, "No Dem ocrats in Ibis crowd!" nnd laughter and apphmse,)) well Democrats are now pre ferring country to party, combicr tngeth'-r as you have is an act of sterling patriot ism hitherio almost unknown in American politics, and promoted only by considera tions of public h'oocl. Km these are the characteristic trails of the business and commercial men of the country. 1 do not attribute your call to any personal con cern (or my success. You look beyou I the candidate to the great principle he represents and upon that ground and in that spirit you nre here today, and in tho sumo spirit I address you now. No people In the country can be more Interested in the result or the elections two Weeks from next Tuesday than the com mercial men of the United States. Whtt yon want is business, uml you have dis covered that you cannot sell If there is nobody to buy from you. You have suf fered greatly the last few years nudes the withering touch of partial free trade ,i:id the instability of Im-dnesK, and above all. the absence of conlidence. Shall the com mercial men now embark in the vastly more dlsnstioiis und destructive policy of free silver (cries of "No!"), which l the party shibboleth, not of honor, but of dishonor? A gnat many people lind pe a ll.tr pleasure In the word "free." il.augh ii r.) It Is a glorious word when pripe ly applied, l iio not know what you m ly think about It. but i do not believe in de stroying either the business, the pi-'oiierty or the credit of this country, tinder the cry of free silver. .(Cheers.) We have jnt pride in our glorious record In favor of free speech, free soil, free press, free men und free conscience, but I believe that ihe grill majority of our eoimtrypien lire nei ther in favor of free Ir nle, free silver fri free lawlessness lupplausc and cries of "No!"), or cheating people ill tile sacred name of freedom. The question or hon-st money against free rilver and Irredeemable paper nioiuy, both unlimited and both unsound, has been so thoroughly argued that I do not wish to occupy yeur time in discussion it. Suf fice it to say that no valid or simiclent r ; son has yet been given or can lie given for the t nlted Siates adopting either. Some things are so plain; some things are sn clear and distinct: some things nre so palpable and self-evident that, like day ami night, every man must sooner or ialnr recognize them. If human experience has proved anything, it is that no nation w u ever bem il ted by poor money, or Injur d by good money, und that no man ever suf fered from being honest Hnd no man ever profited by being dishonest, (looil. homst dollars hurt nobody, if we have not as much good money as we ought to have, let us get more, and we will get npee whencvir I lie country requires it. l"tt we will not get them as long as we are proposing to adopt the financial policy of China and Mexico.

WIND FROM P0PCCRATIC SAILS P. I. Armour Says He Will Carry llliuoi by !O,00OThe Itise n Convincing Answer to Silver Argil incuU- Ml Hiimiiicss Helped by the Farmers' Prosperity. New York, Oct 18. What llltle wind there was left in Ihe i'opocnuie sails must have been spilled out yesterday by the movement of the wheat market. The last week has been a very trying one for l'opocratic orators eveiy whet e, but yesterday capped the climax. In the face of an advance of 4 cents In the price of wheat in one day and of over 0 cents in three months. It will be daily more ditlicult to convince the far mer who gets the benefit of the advance that ln can hope for no better price for his product until the money of the country Is debused. Wheat steadily rising in value und silver steadily fall ing are object lessons w hich the soph istries of the l!oy Talker and his spon sors will find Increasing dillicitlty in ex plaining away. The New York wheat murket was boiling yesterday. It was the greatest duv yet witnessed. Tile bulk of the dealings were In the Pecember option; that Is, In wheat to be delivered 111 December. The opening price was 8o''ii. against a ( losing of T'J on Friday. Sub sequently there was a decline to Sfl' j. Then the price started upward nt a rap Id rate. The advance continued unin terruptedly until the close, when the limitation was SITi. making the gain for the day L':!i cents a bushel. The total dealings were ltl.OOO.UOU bushels. Dispatches from Chicago said the deal ings there were almost unprecedented. The advance was based on hl,'hor prices in Liverpool. The net advance In corn was three quarters or. a cent, and In oals three elghlhs of a cent. vicnic foii tuf, nri.LS. Chicago, net. 18. It has been a pic nic for the bulls on the Chicago board of trade for the last fortnight, nnd the bears have been in n orresnondingly feverish state of excitement and worry. Tlie steadv advance of cereals, espe cially of wheat: the demand by Cal cutta nnd the Islands of the South si as. nud the fluctuations of the Liver pool markets caused the greatest un certainty, and there Is baldly a specu lator on 'Change who knows hulf the time where he's nt. Wednesday's fluctuations In wheat bewildered every one. There were few, even among the nervy specialists, that had stood In the pit all day, who wire certain at the close of the (lay that they could correctly Interpret the (pieer experiences tney had been through. The mnrkct opened strong enough to milk- the best prices that had been reached up to tlmt time. Ill Ihe first hour of trading there was so vast an amount of wheat offered for sale Ihat the price slumped two cents. Yet. with all Ibis, and the fact that the cables brought more selling than buy In"; orders, there was more long wheat sold ubove Til cents than at any time since the bulge started. With export houses at the seaboard reporting1 an absence of foreign demand, ami ti.at only live cargoes for export bad been taken, San Francisco came to the front wilh prices five a cental higher and re ports of large sales for the orient, a report that Counselmnn Pay alum- had i.aketi over I'.miii.liuil bushels for May n::d the effect of rallying prices over one cent inside of ten minutes. "What Is the cause of the market's firmness und strength'.'" Is u riuestion asked on all sides. Many old-limers confess Ihat they cannot unswer It satisfactorily to themselves. "l think," said P. 1J. Armour, "that the recent advances In grain have onlv Increased the majorities In those west ern states of which Mr. McKinley was sure before. He will carry Illinois nv "nu.tiuo. Why. his majorities will be simply overwhelming. This, however, is not news to anybody who lives in Chicago. We all feel it and know it, und have known It lor some lime." ALTGELD DELIGHTED. The Chicago Tin-brand is Well Satis fied Vt ith New York. New York, Oct. 18. Coventor Alt geld, of Illinois, spent a quiet day at the Fifth Avenue hotel. During the morning he paid a brief visit to Dem ocratic headquarters In company with W. P. St. John. In the afternoon he received a visit front friends. At f o'clock Mr. St. John and Congressman Sulzer accompanied the governor to the ( !rand Central depot, where he took the Chicago express. Congressman Sulzer said the gover- nor was delighted with his visit und he considered the Cooper 1 nion meeting a success in every respect. (lovenior Altgeld. before leaving to day, said: "I ant more than pleased with the cordiality und heartiness of my welcome to New York and the kindliness and consideration shown me on every side. My reception by the audience on Saturday night was all that I could wish for. It has never been my lot to address a more en thusiastic or intelligent audience. I believe that New York state Is going to go for lirynn. I am confident thnt they will acquit themselves creditably us will the people of Illinois.

Amy Price, n stenographer, who formerly lived ot 108 West Fortieth street, this city, com mitted suicide by shooting herself with a revolver, in Philadelphia, on Friday night. Miss Price was employed In a downtown house. It Is said by her relatives that she had been engaged to be married, but that when her Intend ed husband had furnished a home for her, he was taken ill and died. His funeral took place on Friday, and Miss Price attended It. In the afternoon she left this rlty to visit her married sis ter, Mrs. Carrie Clausen, of 1H2 Vienna street, Philadelphia. When she ar rived there she told her sister that she had little to live for. Sirs. Clausen tried to cheer her and told her she should go to bed and get a good night's rest. Miss Price retired, and about an hour afterward Mrs. Clausen heard a pistol shot. The door of the girl's room was locked, but when It was forced open Miss Price was found lying on the bed dead. There was a bullet wound In her breast, and a revolver was clasped In her hand. The body will be brought to this city for burial. Persons who said that they knew Amy Price declared yeBterdny that she was really not Miss, but Mrs. Price, having been married to a man named Price, who lived in San Francisco. Sbe came here a year ago last August, it was suid, and tried to get a position in the cotnpuny which was to support Mrs. Cora I'rquhart and Kyrle llellew in "The Queen's Necklace" at Daly's theater. Site was accepted, on the ground of her beauty, for one of the court ladies In the pluy. She then, it was declared, proceeded to fall In love with Mr. Kelleiv. In the course of the reheursals Mrs. 1'otter took a dislike to her, and she was discharged before the play opened. After that she remained In New York till some months ago, when she went to Philadelphia. HIGHBINDERS ACTIVE. .Waiting fur a Relaxation of Police Vigilance to Inaugurate a Reign of Terror in San Francisco. Chicago, Oct. IS. A special from San Francisco snys the Highbinders of the Chinese colony in this city are waiting for u relaxation of police vigilance to inaugurate u reign of terror. 1 The Chinatown police squad has been so largely Increased of late that the Highbinders ure afraid to take any openly concerted action, but many murderous plans nre said to lie on foot as a result of the efforts of Fung Yung Hang, the Chinese consul, to break up the See Yups, reported to lie the most lawless nnd desperate of the Highbind ers Culmls. Tbe president nnd vice president of tho four companies comprising the See Yup society are reported to be In hid ing, havintt learned that their death wnrrnnts have been signed by the High binders of their society and committees have been appointed to kill the ofllcers. The Highbinders accuse their ollicers of treachery In having signed a treaty of peace with the ofilcers of opposing societies, in pursuant to orders from the Chinese minister nt Washington. The Highbinders nlso charge their president with the embezzlement of See Yup funds. The Chinese are furious at the consul for the destruction of Highbind er rooms and josses. Tbe See Yups yesterday obtained an Injunction from the superior court to prevent further consular demolition. GEN. GROSVENOR'S ESTIMATE. Thinks McKinley is Sure ut 'Ml i:iecloiu!
