That National politics Interfere

the ordinary courtesies and accom

Kilt-edge securities pro begging for

which under ordinary conditions
would be as good as gold, is worth
less for Immediate use, and the
money question is the cause of it

Another army invaded Canton yester

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

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

dispensable to the welfare of mankind
and indispensable to the prosperity and
the permanency of the Republic. I am

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

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
.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.
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 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.

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.

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
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."
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. Of Illi
nois there is not the slightest shadow
of doubt."
Two Stories of the Life of Miss Price,
Yt Iio Committed Suicide.
New York, Oct. 18. 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.
.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.
Thinks McKinley is Sure ut 'Ml
i:iecloiu! Votes.
.Washington, Oct. IS. The following
revised estimates have been received
heie from Cii-neru! (Jrosvenor of Ohio:
"There have been some significant
changes in the situation since my llrst
bulletin, and I have taken very great
pains, by the use of all available means
to ascertain substantially what the re
sult Is to be. There is yet some doubt
and uncertainty about some of the
stales, but I think the following may
be safely placed in the absolutely sure
column: McKinley and Holmri will
have In New Kngland, 9; New York, M;
New Jersey, In; Maryland. S; Delaware,
:!: Pennsylvania, SI!; West Virginia, li;
Ohio, Indiana, 15; Illinois, 24; Michi
gan, II; Wisconsin, 12; Iowa, lit; Min
nesota, U; South D.ikota, 4: North Da
kota. S; Wyoming. H". Nebraska, 8;
Kentucky, III; Oregon, 4: Washington,
4; California. !. Total, 202.
There Hi e some stales which T do not
class us sure for McKinley which I be
lieve will elve him their vote, to wit:
Kansas, in; Virginia. 12; Tennessee, 12;
Missouri. 17. Total. 51.
The stales which do not seem to lip
doubtful und which must be conceded
practically without controversy to liry
iin remuin us in my first table, except
that Florida has disclosed an uncertain
ly as to her still us. und T think Unit
Texas and Louisiana may lie added to
the sure vote for ISryan, in my opinion.
Thus, we have 2H2 voles for McKinley
and llobarl with 221 necessary to their
election, if th y gain in the sumo ra
tio for the next three weeks as they
gained in the Inst three, litis Is a very

London. Oct. IS. Since the czar com
plimented the "very line escort" which
the Channel squadron afforded him In
his ( rossing from Portsmouth to Cher
bourgh. Increased Interest has been
taken in the condition of the British
nuvv. .Vr. Cioscheit, first lord of the
admiralty, has been devoting much
thought during the recess to the whole
question of naval defense; and he Is
credited with the Intention, in next
