Canton. ()., Oct. lit. The booming of
camion at X o'clock this morning an
nounced the opening of the meeting at
the Tabernacle of the Cnitui generals,
under the leadership of General U. A.
Alger. In spite of the early hour for
which the meeting was called, the hall
was tilled with an enthusiastic audi
ence. Short sneeches were made by
Generals Howard, Alger, Martin, Slew
art and Sickles unci Corporal Tanner.
As each speaker concluded his remarks
he was presented with a basket of
choice Mowers by members of the Wo
man's Relief Corps of Cunton. Alter
the meeting the visitors were escorted
to the depot by a large number of citi
zens. Major McKinley drove down to
the depot from his residence to see the
generals off. The train left at 9 o'clock
A delegation of business men from
Sewickley. I'a., arrived here at ll.Iii)
o'clock and called on Major McKlnley
at his residence.
The sneaker for the McKinley and
Hobart Sound Money club of Sewickley,
l'n., was C.eorge R. Wallace. Ho re
viewed with grabble felicity the ef
fects of the Wilsnn-Uorman tariff law
upon the Industrial and commercial
world and saiil that the growing belief
in the election of Major McKlnley was
beginning to restore confidence.
Major McKinley mnde n short speech
In reply which was received with ap
plause and much cheering. There was
n large number of ladles with the dele
gation. Major McKlnley snld: .
"1 am glad to have the assurances of
your spokesman that in this crisis of
our history you are standing for na
tional honor and for the preservation
of our free Institutions. The Republi
can party has always occupied a post of
treat honor. From the time of lis or
ganization down to the present mo
ment. It has been the leader oral! that
is best In government. It was born in
the Interest of liberty and the rights
of humanity. It has never struck n
blow that bns not been for freedom and
rtur glorious (lag. And in every great
emergency that party, not so old ns
some other parties In this country, has
led for the riht, for Justice, for good
morals and for public honesty. It nev
er had a higher post of honor than it.
has today. Glorious, ns the past hns
been. It has never carried a flag which
involved more to the Institutions of our
country and Its good nnme, as the Hag
which it carries today. (Applause).
Anil I am glad to know that from one
end of this country to the other tin
int'.iliircnce und judgment nnd con
science of the American people are not
appealed to in vain. Some people seem
to have the notion that the Republican
party has made a new departure; that
it oecuplCH a different position today
from which it ever occupied in the past.
That's a mistake. We stand where we
have always stood, not only upon the
money question but on the tariff ques
tion; nnd 1 want to call your nttention
to ivhat may have escaped you. When
the president closed the great problem
of the great American people, after the
construction of the Union, was what
should be done with the great debt that
hnd been occasioned by the war and
whnt should be done by way of main
taining a sound currency in the I'nited
States. In 1V6S the great soldier of the
war. who hail led the mightiest nrmles
that were ever engaged in sustaining a
cause Generrl Ulysses S. Grant, was
nominated for president. It me read
you twf planks of the platform upon
which he stood nnd you can see wheth
er the Reoubllcnn party has changed
its position: "We denounce all forms of
repudiation as a national crime nnd
the national honor requires the pay
ment of the public debt In the utmost
faith to all creditors at home and
abroad, not only according to the letter,
but the spirit of the Inw, under which
it was contracted.' That was when,
we had that enormous war debt of over
two billions of dollars and the country
seemed to be staggering under It, but
the Republican party stood up as it al
ways has and Insisted that every dollar
of that d"bt must be paid In the best
currency of the world and under that
policy we have paid off more than
two-thirds of that preat national debt
nnd paid every dollar of H with honor
und the best currency. Then let me
read you another plank In that platform
which so well applies to our situation
THM BICST POLICY.
" 'That the best policy to diminish
our burdens of debt Is to so Improve
our credit that the capitalist will serk
to loan us money at. lower rates of in
terest than we now pay and must con
tinue to pay so long as Repudiation,
partial or total, open or otherwise is
threatened or suspected." This Is the
Republican way to restore confidence
und to get capital to invest at lower
rates of Interest and to give confidence
to the business of the country, not by
repudiating the debt of the country and
by discrediting Its currency, but by
lifting up both credit and currency and
thus commanding the confidence f the
business world. In that same year the
Democratic national conv.ntion that
nominated Horatio Seymour for presi
dent, had tblH utterance on the money
question which was sound then and Is
today, and I commend it to all of you:
"One currency of the government and
the people, the laborer, the ollice hold
er, the pensioner, and the soldier, the
producer and the bondholder.'
"That's the kind of money we have
today, my fellow citizens Just as good
'in the hands of the poor as in the hands
of the rich, and we propose to pay the
obligations of the government In the
future just as we have paid the obli
gations of the government in the past
In the best money of the world. I am
glad to- meet you here at my home,
glad tn see the ladles here this morn
ing. It is a Rood omen when the wo
men take an interest in public affairs
(applause), and I am sure they are
Just as much Interested In good gov
ernment and good laws and good mor
als as the men can be and their in
fluence In this campaign on the side
of right I am sure will be beneficial."
Col. John Hyatt, of Washington. D.
C, one of Lincoln's 'private secretaries,
arrived at half-past one and was cor
dially received by Major McKlnley.
Another party of political pilgrims,
also accompanied by large numbers
of ladles, journeyed up the hill to Major
McKlnley's Market street home this
nfternoon. They came from Mogadore,
ftiTnrHt county, Ohio, and brought the
' ndiiiat ' assurance of loyalty and
f.i.'e.ttiess In support of the ticket
from the Republicans of that section.
The visitor were Introduced to Major
McKlnley by State Representative F.
W. Meyers. In responding Major Mc
Klnley spoke in a neighborly way to
his former constituents und bade them
remeber that the nation's superb record
of progress in the last thirty years was
made under a policy, first of a protect
ive tariff, and second, under a solind
monetary System. He urg.d the vis
itors to vote for good money and pro
tection t home Industries.
The mail and telegraph are still
bringing requests from leaders of dele
gations asking Major McKlnley if he
can receive them.

has been for great good in the ennse of
the people, its display in many plnees
has been potent In the advancement of
the country's battle for the mainten
ance of Its honor at home nnd abroad.
1 therefore suggest thai on Saturday,
Oct. ill, all who Intend to vote on Nov.
:! for i he preservation of our national
honor, or sound money and the ad
vancement of our people's Interest and
general prosperity, display the national
colors at their homes, their places of
business, nnd wherever they may be
wen. In order that voters whose hearts
are for their country may lie strength
ened in their pPosk and those who
are undetermined may more patrioti
cally and Inlelliarently conclude how
best to perform their duty ns citizens."
It Is further suggested at the head
quarters of the Republican national
committee that slate, county, nnd city
committees ami clubs supporting sound
money and tho nation's integrity en
I'outage the display of the national tlag
on the last Saturday in tho campaign

Meeting Held in Ohi.
Dayton, O., Oct. 19. The enthusiasm
which marked William J. Bryan's pre
vious sallies to Ohio during the cam
paign began to show itself anew on his
entry into Major McKlnley's state this
morning. His special train left Detroit
at 4.45 a. m. and reached Toledo at B.:!0,
and the premonitory symptoms of a
busy day for the candidate developed
there. Two or three hundred men in
the Union station called for Mr. Itryan
nnd arising from his berth and making
a hasty toilet he went out on the plat
form and talked to them.
Fifteen minutes only were spent at
Toledo. Stops were made by the train
at Perrysburg. Weston. Deshler. Lcip
slc, Ottawa and Columbus Grove. The
biggest crowd was al l.eipsic, reached
at 8.2"i. Mr. Dryun made a short ad
dress there. Rrief remarks were made
at all the other places mentioned, w ith
the except ion of Weston and at each
the candidate was received with con

Washington Court House, O., Oct. l!.
.Mr. Itryan today denied the report
which appeared lu Leslies Weekly that
be had applied to the manager of the
Herald Square theater. New York, last
January, for the position of press
agent. The dcnlul was called fori It by
several other newspaper statements
saying that he had been on the'stage;
that he had thought about going on the
stage and that he had written a criti
cism of a play.
Mr. Bryan said there was no truth
in any of them, milling that at the time
lie was reported as contemplating the
stage, he was writing editorials In fa
vor of free silver, and delivering leo
tures upon that subject throughout the
ltelli -fonle. l'n., Oct. 111. The work or Hie
Presbyterian synod this morning wis

It Admits or So Neutrality Toward
the Doctrine It Advocates- Party
Association Should Not Ue Allowed
to Interpose to l'rcvcnt the Per
formance of Duty in Stuuditig by
New York. Oct. lit. Mr. W. J. Cur
tis, of tlK law Mini of Sullivan und
Cromwell, with olllces on Wall street,
this city, and a member of the National
Democratic committee of New Jersey,
has received the following letter from
the assistant secretary of the navy,
Lakewood. N. J., Oct. If.. 1S9.
My Dear Mr. Curtis: I am in re
ceipt of your letter, and also those of
other friends in New Jersey, asking
my views on the iiuestlons involved
in this section, and requesting a public
expression of the same. The issues
at stake are too momentous not to con
cern evety citizen and I would consider
myself unworthy the friendship and re
spect of those who have hitherto hon
ored me in this rcgaid If I were guilty
of cither evasion or silence.
The question, depending on the elec
tion are above nil partisan and per
sonal considerations, and concern tho
maintenance of our Institutions and
the honor of our country.
Personally it is with deep regret that
I find myself differing with some of
my friends, and for the first time in
my life unable to support the platform
and nominees of a convention held
under the auspices of the Democratic
party. It would be a poor requital for
the honors given me by former consti
tuents in New Jersey if 1 should fail
In this crisis to sncnk tn them with
candor and sincerity on mntlrs so
vital to their Interests, at the risk of
offending some of them, rather than
assume 11 cowdardly acquiescence in a
policy which 1 heartily and sincerely
believe is fraught with danger and dis
aster to the interests of the party and
ominlously overshadowed with peril
to the natiun.
The greater questions of the cam
paign are too shin ply defined, the re
sults altogether too momentous nnd
far reaching, to allow political expe
diency or temporary partisan advan
tage to permit Indifference, neutrality,
or neglect. The best service one can
render to his friends Is to boldly differ
with them for the preservation of what
he honestly believes their best inter
ests at the risk of fot felling their
friendship or even incurring their en
mity. t'NSOUND DOCTIUXES.
"I am opposed to the platform and
unable to support the ticket nominated
at Chicago, because "f am thoroughly
convinced that the doctrines therein set
forth are unsound and dangerous, and
would work incalculable injury to the
whole people of the republic being
from a political and economic point of
view extremely radical If not revolu
tionary, lii'cd with the heat of renewed
sectionalism, and savnge with the bit
terness of class distinctions hitherto
unknown to this new and happier hemi
sphere. "As a representative In congress I had
the privilege of speaking and voting on
several occasions against the free coin
age of silver, one of the more, objec
tionable features of the Chicago plat
form, nnd have heard no new argu
ments in Its favor since then, nnd in
deed a careful reading of the best Unit
can be said for it strengthens my con
viction as to its folly and danger. The
untenable character of this proposition
and its especially injurious effects on
the wage workers, has been so clearly
demonstrated that I do not deem it nec
essary at this time to review the objec
tions to a scheme which seems to inn
both visionary and vicious. Had as I
believe this measure to be, when in ad
dition it is coupled with drastic and
violent remedies for evils in govern
ment imaginary or existent, and which
would prove worse than the evils them
selves, it must give the most violent
partisan who still remains a patriot,
pause before giving such a platform
support, either active or passive. IM1
the principles at issuu beget only min
or differences as to degree and expedi
ency we might well within party lines,
and for the sake of organisation, apply
the Augustinian maxim, "I'nity in es
sentials, liberty in non-essentials, nnd
toleration In all things," but the plat
form has the only virtue of being bold
and undisguised, and admits of no neu
tral position toward the doctrine It nrl
vocates; on the rock or the sand bank
you shall take your stand, and between
t hein runs the deep sea.
MOST PA1NFCL REFLKCTION.
"The most painful reflection in con
nection with this subject is that those
who advocate necessary and progres
sive reforms, either In the principles
or practice of government, and who
would constantly, under normal condi
tions, be active in their support, are
likely 10 become cowed and silent from
alarm at the serious proposition to ap
ply reckless, unusual nnd violent rem
edies to existing conditions, as if or
der, light and peace were the children
of chaos, darkness nnd disorder. It
Is an acknowledged and known fact
that those great reforms which so ad
vanced Democracy In Knglaud were
driven back and delayed for many
years by the excesses of the French
revolution. The fear of violent nnd un
natural remedies is the best shield of
ubuses: the best way to ninke reform
odious Is to tinge II with the red hues
of the menace of reckless radicalism;
and to prevent hereafter the undue re
action against wholesome and legiti
mate criticism of government is neces
sary to reject with an emphasis ap
proaching unanimity the extreme nnd
sweeping Innovations proposed at Chi
cago. In Its whole history the Demo
cratic party has glorilled In its conser
vatism, and In the period following the
civil war it won the allegiance of vast
numbers of young men then coming of
age by its consistent opposition to all
radical tendencies; Indeed, In Its of
ficial appeal to voters In New Jersey
and New York, It has called itself the
Democratic conservative party. From
this attitude to that of the convention
at Chicago which found nothing worthy
of conservation, Is indeed a long dist
ance. "I yield to no one In my belief In the
majesty and independence of this great
country; its Imperial place among the
powerful nations; its duty to assert Its
rights and maintain Its honor In all
lands and on all seas, but I cannot be
convinced that the best way to make it
omnipotent against the world, if not,
as proposed, against nnture Itself, is
to weaken Its prestige and clip its
authority at home, discredit Its Insti
tutions, and Impair Its business Integ
rity. In a contest such as thin, party
associations, personal friendships and
Interests, and even family ties con
not be Allowed to interpose between us
and primary duty to stand by the re
public, the best hope of humanity; to
keep unimpaired, sacred und honored
its institutions nnd its Hug.
"Very sincerely yours,
"William J. Curtis, esq.. Summit, N. J."

Sterling K. Holt Opposes Free Coin
ngu and lliynn.
Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 19. Sterling
U. Holt, who recently resigned the chair
manship of the Democratic state com
mit lee because ho was hampered by the
silver faction who accused him of dis
loyalty, issued a letter today In which
he declares that he Is opposite to the
free coinage of silver at 16 to 1; asserts
that Mr. tlryan has no right to the
claim of regularity, sets out the numer
ous times that the nominee has. It is al
leged, bolted the party's nominations
and concludes with a sweeping repudia
tion of the Democratic fusion with the
Pnmilists in Indiana.
For the bitter reason he no longer
considers himself bound to support the
Chicago ticket and he calls upon all
true Democrats to defend the party's
honor by repudiating Populism.

Cuba before January 1 President Cleve
land will recognize the independence of
The Imparcial adds that the neutral

States is an odious fiction, and that
there Is continual connivance at filibus

"If Spain should remain alone in a

how to mark the difference between the
noble defenders of their own property

upward by leaps and bounds when the
local market opened toduy at the New
York Produce Kxchange. The lirst sun
lit December future was mude at Sled
cents, the closing price on Saturday,
making a net advance of over four
cents and an advance of 21 cents
over the lowest point' It reached In the
month of September. The big advance
was the outcome of a further advance
in the European markets and the re
ports of shortage In the crops of India,
Australiu and other foreign countries
which continue to be received.
Within ten minutes after the opening
the market advanced to 8GVi cents and
the trading was attended with great
excitement. This was particularly
marked when dispatches were received
from Chlcagoand Liverpool showing
that big advances had been made over
Saturday In those markets also. The
Chicago market, with enormous trad
ing, was even more excited than the
local one. Liverpool advices showed
that an advance equivalent to 6 cents a
bushel had been rnade since Saturday.
The Berlin market was 5 to 5 marks
hiwher, and Paris reported an advance
of from ::o to 40 centimes.
Wheat was traded in on an enormous
scale all the forenoon. The foreign
houses were largo buyers and the local
firms were close behind.
All the other markets felt the stim
ulus of the advance In wheat. Corn
sold at 31V4 cents for its December fu
ture, compared with 3;i'4 cents for Sat
urday, u net advance of 1 cent a bushel.
Stocks, cotton and provisions were
strong likewise on the impression which
all the dispatches from abroad seem to
confirm that the world will have to
turn to this country for Its breadstuff
EXCITEMENT AT CHICAGO.
Chicago, Oct. 19. In the midst of a
scene of wild excitement, such as vet
eran traders recall In war times, De
cember wheat opened on the Chicago
board of trade today anywhere from
iSVi to 71P4 afier closing officially Sat
urday at 75?,,. It was an average three
cent Jump to begin the furor. Eichty
cent wheat was missed by a quarter of
a cent only, the top notch o the sen
sational session being 794. Hut the
market was not all upwards. It oscil
lated between Saturday's closing prices
and the top, reacted to 7ti:!i and
Hashed all around this point with a
bewildering assortment of changes.
The December future broke towods
the close, the last ofliciul price being
77, but that was 14 above Saturday's
closing. Before the commotion in the
pit began the English cables posted on
'Change told the feverish crowd that
more wheat was wanted by the United
Kingdom. Paris and Berlin contribut
ed their quota of bull news and served
to tune the excited crov;d to the pitch
of a 3-cent rise at the opening. Trad
ers on both sides of tho market real
ized it was not a local one, which was
shown by the prices remaining firm In
the face of heavy selling of long lines
by holders to get the profit. A feature
of the day was that everybody was
making money. Paying business came
to the brokers from Tacoma, to New
Brunswick. P. D. Armour .was a heavy
buyer, and there was a report that
John Cudnhy sold big lots of his wheat
holdings but it was not supposed he
sold all of his long line. The boister
ous opening of the Minneapolis mar
ket, where the opening price was al
most live cents above the closing Sat
urday wus taken as evidence of the
strength of the northwestern market.
Strong as the demand was loca ly,
wheat could only be got when men were
found who were willing to let go and
be satisfied with their protlts. For
tunes were made In an hour.
President Baker said: "The activity
Is due to strong foreign markets, Liv
erpool showing nn advance of six cents
a bushel. Great Britain wants our
wheat, but It is absurd to talk of wheat
being shipped to Aigentlna."
