ARRIVAL OF THE GARFIELD CLUB
Member and Their Friends to the
Number of 3,500, Accompanied by
Several Bras Band, Block the
Street in Front of the McKinley
Canton, O., Oct. 21. At 1 o'clock this
afternoon Major McKlnley received a
cull from the members of the McKinley
club of Lowellville, and a large party
i of friends from Poland township, 11a
, honing county, Ohio. This delegation,
! made up of nearly 300 persons, received
, a cordial welcome from the candidate.
I It was in Poland township that Major
j McKinley spent the greater part of his
; boyhood, and from which he went as a
i soldier to serve his country. These
! points were brought out In the brief in
1 troductory address of, Judge George
Farrell, of Youngstown, who acted as
Major McKinley addressed the Poland
township delegation as follows:
I don't know of anything that has so
deeply touched me as to receive a visit
from the home of my boyhood. Old Po
land township is very near and dear to ni'..
I spent most of my boyhood years with
you. I entered the service from your
town. The company to which I belonged
was made up uf the boy of that town
ship, und I see you curry the same old
starry banner that you carried then, and
for which you gave, or were willing to
give, your live. I returned to Poland ut
the conclusion of the war and rwelved
my education as a lawyer In your town
ship. 1 left In 1!U7 and came to this little
city, but there has never been a township
with which are associated so many lea
der and sacred memories and there has
never been a moment of time since I left
that I have nut felt and appreciated that
I had your good wishes and prayers, and
whenever I stood for a public oilioe I al
ways hud your votes. Not only the votes
of ull the Republicans, but uf many of
the iJemocrats who had been my friends
and neighbors In boyhood. I remember
that during the period of the war no ques
tion was usked as to whether u man was
a Republican or a Democrat; the simple
and only question was whether he was a
patriot, and in this year, lstKi. when the
country's honor Is assailed and our cur
rency is attacked end our courts threat
ened, the only question that is asked is,
lire von a patriot? And this year, as then,
obliterating all party distinctions and
party differences and sectional lines, Dem
ocrats und Republicans are standing upon
a common platform to preserve the honor
of our country and to see to It that public
law ."hull be supreme and masterful over
When Major McKinley had finished
his brief talk he greeted each of his old
neighbors with a hearty handshake,
and had a pleasant word for each.
TROOPERS FROM CHICAGO.
The mounted escort of Chicago rode
up to the McKinley residence Just as
the Poland township people were leav
ing, and Major McKinley, after re
viewing them from the platform erect
ed on the front of his lawn, comple
mented the escort upon Its excellent ap
pearance. The members of the Garfield club of
the old Nineteenth Ohio district, and
their friends to the number of 3.500,
were the next callers. They arrived on
four special trains and were accom
panied by several brass bands, and
glee clubs. After filling the McKinley
lawn the crowd literally blocked North
Market street In front and Major Mc
Kinley was obliged to abandon the
porch for the more prominent position
on the platform, where he could be
more readily heard by all. His appear
ance on the platform was the signal
for a tremendous outburst of cheering.
The McKinley Glee club of, Niles, Ohio,
and the Weber quartette, of Chicago,
rendered several campaign selections,
and then Captain William Wallace,
president of the Garfield club, intro
duced Congressman Stephen A, North
way as the spokesman.
When Major McKinley finished his
speech he introduced State Senator
James R. Garfield, who spoke briefly.
The great Illinois delegation pressed
closely behind the army of enthusiastic
voters from Garfield's old district. The
Illinois and Chicago people, escorted by
the Black Hussars and the Canton
troop, passed In review before Major
McKinley before he addressed them.
After the parade General John McNul
ta spoke In behalf of the Chicago dele
gution; W. J. Calhoun, for the south of
Illinois; Robert J. Given, for the Re
publican clubs of Chicago, and P. J.
Mlnter, for the labor organizations.
Major McKinley addressed them and
then a short time after the Illinois dele
gation departed about fifty well known
laboring men and labor leaders of Chi
cago and Illinois, called on Major Mc
Kinley and told him they wanted to as
sure him that the worklngmen of the
country understood the question at Is
sue and that they considered him one
of their most trusted and useful friends.
M. H. Madden was spokesman. Major
McKinley appropriately responded to
his remarks, and at sunset the Cleve
land East End McKinley regiment
marched up to the McKinley residence.
While their spokesman. F. G. Hogen
was addressing Major McKinley. each
man lighted a torch and In a moment's
time a thousand lights were swinging
and flashing In the streets. Major Mc
Kinley made another speech and In the
evening the Republican marching clubs
of Masslllon paid Major McKinley a
visit and were briefly addressed by him.
SPEECH TO GARFIELD CLUB.
To the delegates from the Nineteenth
congressional district of Ohio Major
I am greatly honored to receive this vis
It from the Uartield club of the old Nine
teenth Ohio district. I understand tint
ellrth'llty to membership In this club Is
that the citizens shall have voted for Gen
eral Uartield for congress. Under thit
rule I am entitled to full membership
with the rest of you to this great club.
The first vote 1 cast after returning from
the great civil war was a vote to send Gen
eral Uartield back to the house of repre
sentatives. (Applause). Then, besides, I
was born in the western reserve; I belong
to you by every tie. But greater and
stronger than all is the tie of devotion to a
common country and the glorious old
Stars anil Stripes. If wise counsels were
required On any of the questions dividing
this country this year, those counsels can
be found in the teachings, the speeches
and the writings of the distinguished
man whose name you bear whether on
the question of finance or on tariff, he

WATSON WILL NOT COME DOWN.
The Noisy Populist Makes a Quiet
Speeeh at Birmingham.
Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 21. Tom Wat
son spoke at Capital Park, In this city,
tonight to an audience of about 2,500.
He was attentively heard and frequent
ly cheered. Mr. Watson's speech was
an agreeable surprise in many respects.
He did not denounce Sewall and said
he hud never Indulged in abuse of that
l-ftitl 'lrun. But hi party, aald he,
Ulcn bud ulwaya denounced the en
i niHchments of corporations could not
Kithbort a Plutocrat.
Mr. Watson made It very plain that
he did not Intend to come down. "I
am in the fight, and I am going to stay
there. My word of honor Is out and no
threats will make me furl the Has of
my party. If I were to come down my
people will go farther away. They will
It her stny at home or vote for Mc
Kinley. If I were to come down my
fi-ici'.us would feel that their party had
been deceived and Mr. Bryan's cam
paign would collapse in Oregon and
North Dakota. The chairman of the
Democratic party in Oregon wired me
when It was noised abroad that I was
going to come oil the ticket not to do so,
as they would have no time to put an
other ticket up, a,nd my coming off
would give that state to McKinley; my
coming down would also throw both
Illinois and Indiana to McKinley."

COL. NORTON'S LETTER.
The Middle of the Road Populist Oifers
His Contribution of Abuse of the
Washington. Oct. 21. Colonel S. F.
Norton, of Illinois, who was the can
didate of the Middle of the Road Popu
lists ut the St. Louis convention, has
written to Chairman Butler a letter
denouncing the Republican party and
eulogizing Bryan. In the course of his
letter. Colonel Norton says:
However much Populists muy have dif
fered nt St. l.otils ns tu the correct policy
to adopt; however much some of us may
still believe that mistakes were made, un
der existing circumstances, there is only
one course to pursue, and that is to loyal
ly and earnestly support Mr. Bryan not
so much for the sake of elevating him to
the presidency, as for the purpose of de
feating what may be appropriately and
most expressively termed Murk Hanna
We are In the face of the enemy; we
nro upon the Held of battle, tile welfare
of our country Is at stake, a sacred cause
Is trembling In the balance, our opponents
are dangerously well equipped and thor
oughly organized, and the contest Is fierce
and relentless; all personal ambitions,
therefore, should be suppressed, all per
sonal grievances should be forgotten, and
oil minor differences should be deferred
till the battle is won or lost. Every gun
should be turned upon the common enemy.
Whether Mr. Bryan is a Populist or not,
one thing is absolutely certain, every
enemy which reformers have encountered
during the last twenty years we find to
day umong his bitterest and most relent
less ipponenin. Every monopolistic cor
poration, every oppressor of labor, every
land grabber, every trust and combine,
every robber syndicate, every millionaire
stock Jobber, every subsidized newspaper,
every well paid corporation lawyer, every
millionaire coal baron, every Shylock
creditor and every plunderer of the world's
wealth-producers all of these old-time
enemies, whom reformers have met on so
many battlefields, are today Mr. Bryan's
enemies. If they are his enemies, he mint
be our friend. His success Is their defeat;
their defeat is our victory. If defeat
awaits us, and our standard bearer falls,
let there be no Populist arrows found
either in his breast or in his back. Let
the responsibility rest upon other should
ers than our own.
JONES EXPLAINS IT.
Has figured Out the Cause or the
Kise in Wheat.
Chicago, Oct. 21. Senator Jones,
chairman of the Democratic national
committee, was interviewed today re
garding the pronounclamento of Chair
man Babcork, of the Republican con
gressional committee, in which Mr.
Babcork insists that the recent rise lu
the price of wheat, while the price
of silver has declined, indicates that
the claims of the silver men that the
price of wheat depends on the price of
ounce of silver, are unfounded. The,
The advance iro the price of a bushel
of wheal proves rather than disproves the
theories of the silver men. Our conten
tion has been that the wheat of India com
peted with our wheat In the Liverpool
market; that the Liverpool merchant
could In normal limes buy In India at
any time during the past twenty-three
yeurs a bushel of wheat for about one
ounce of silver. When the ounce of sil
ver was worth Jl.Si in gold In 1873. this
meant that the bushel of wheat was worth
about that in gold. Hut ulthough the In
dian wheat farmer has always been will
ing to take an ounce of silver for a bushel
of wheat, the ounce of silver has fallen in
value uwlng to Its demonetization and
disuse, und consequently, as the gold
value of nn ounce of silver declines the
gold value of the bushel of wheut de
clined und tnc American farmer has been
compelled to receive the gold equivalent
of the ounce of silver for hU bushel of
wheat. This meant a gradual decline in
the price from about !l.-i) or 1.20 a bushel
in 1873, to fin or Hi cent" In 181)3. The real
cause, therefore, for the decline in the
i-old value in our wheat was largely the
competition In India. v

' NEW STATEMENT
Knocks the Points Cut ol Severs! Silver
DOES NOT ADVOCATE COERCION
The Republican National Committee
Will Do All in Its Power to Protect
Workingincn in Their Rights at
Chicago, Oct. 21. Chairman Hanna,
of the Republican national committee,
gave to the press the following an
nouncement: The manifest policy of the silver
Democratic managers in this cam
paign, as set forth by their candidate
for president, shortly after his nomi
nation, has been to create the belief
- in the minds of the worklngmen that
they were being coerced by their em
ployers to vote contrary to their con
victions. The chnlrmun of their na
tional committee, Hon. James K.
Jones, has emphasized this policy in a
proclamation, in which he boldly
charges the employing classes of the
country with having entered into a
conspiracy to coerce their employes
into voting contrary to their opinions.
This is a very grave charge, and It has
now assumed a form that Justifies giv
ing it some attention. To coerce a
voter is a crime against the laws of the
land, and If Messrs. Bryan and Jones
know of coercion they make them
selves accomplices of the criminals
by not Informing the proper authori
ties and taking steps for prosecution.
While we consider the charge absurd,
and believe that American worklng
men and employers are too Independ
ent and patriotic, either to be co
erced or to coerce, the Republican na
tional committee will do anything in
Its power to protect worklngmen in thu
free and untramelled exercise of their
rights as citizens, and will cheerfully
unite with the national Democratic
committee in any movement having
that object In view. Coercion of voters
is not only an un-American, un-patrl-otlc
and despotic usurpation of the
rights of a free citizen, but It Is a
wrong that will Inevitably recoil upon
its perpetrators. It Is an arbitrary
' use of power that is in direct conflict
with the principles of our government.
The civil compact of the majority rule
means free majorities, for whose pro
tection all constitutional powers should
be used, and without which a political
victory would be barren of results
worthy of a great party. Tills com
mittee will spare no pains to secure to
every citizen, whatever his politics,
the right to cast his vote according to
his convictions and to have his vote
PRINCETON'S BIG DAY.
President and Mrs. Cleveland Among

Princeton, N. J Oct. 21. All that goes

undor graduates known as the "mer

the buff and blue 'uniforms of colonial

The "Old Guard" classes from 1803 to
18S9 passed by next, commanded by

An advance guard of men dressed in
short breeches and long coats of George
Washington style, preceded the coach
In which Rev. R. D. Harlan, of Roches
ter, was seated, taking the part of
George himself. The coach was drawn
by four grey horses, and two darkies
were perched upon the high high seat
The motto on one of the transpar
encies carried by the class of '95 ex
cited considerable merriment. It was
addressed to the president, and read:
"Grover, send your boys to Princeton,"
at which his excellency smiled as If he
would take the matter into considera

sion had passed the band commenced
playing "Old Nassua," and thousands
of voices took up the refrain.

W. T. Rambuscb, Who Had Absconded
fiom Juneau, Kills Himself in the
Cemetery at Fredericksburg.
Fredericksburg-, Va., Oct. 21. W. T.
RumbUBch, the absconding banker from
J mien u, Wis., killed himself here lust
night. Ramhusch came here a week
ugo and registered at the hotel as C.
T. Anderson. He hns been visiting the
battlefields since. He shot himself in
the national cemetery here. The body
was found In a sitting position, the
hand still grasping the pistol with
which he had shot himself in the right
temple. He left a note saying he wish
ed to die among his comrades.
It was evident from papers found on
Rambusch's person that he had con
templated suicide, but was hastened In
committing the deed by the appearance
on yesterday evening's papers of a cut
of himself and a detailed account of his
crime. He addressed a letter to the
Presbyterian minister asking that he
offer a prayer over hlH grave and begged
protection for his wife and daughter.
He requested that his remains be buried
here and that parties named by him
be wired to come here and identify his
body, that 'his family would have no
trouble in securing the Insurance
money. He claimed when he came here
that he was In 111 health and had been
ordered by his phyBlcian to seek rest
and recreation and as he had not visit
ed the battlefields of this section since
he participated in the stormy scenes of
the war he had come to this place.
He had no effects with him save a
small handsatchel, In whicri were a
change of underwear, a few other small
belongings and $1225 In money.- This
he requested to be used in settling
Ms unpaid hotel bill and funeral ex
penses. He wu3 very methodical in
all he did and went to his death with a
deliberation and cr.i'-nness that only a
man of Iron nerve could comnnd. Those
who came In contact with him here
were Impressed with his intelligence
and dignified manner. Ths verdict of
the coroner's Jury was "raurdorcd by
his own hand."
Telegrams havo been received from
friends In Wisconsin and New York
but as they are somewhat conflicting,
the senders have been summoned here
in person. The letters to his wife and
Mr. John Curtis, of Centervllle, his
cousin, were at his request, forwarded
unopened. In neither his communica
tions to parties here did he refer to the
grave charges made against himself In
the papers, doubtless thinking that the
disclosure of his Identity would be suf
ficient to publish his wrongs far and

effect upon the American consular ser

PENNSYLVANIA'S POOR PLAY.
In an Indifferent Game Defents the
Amherst Club by a Score of 14 to 0.
Philadelphia, Oct. 21. Pennsylvania
beat Amherst 14 to 0 this afternoon and
