s enduing wealth by the mere breitii

debasing the money or th country, und
It cannot make the country rieli by giving
us dollars that are only worth ft! cents
each and stamping them dollars. (Ap
plause.) Now, eontrress can help the country,
but ll must be by wise legislation, earing
for the products, the labor, the farms and
the men of our people, by protecting
them against the produc ts of people liv
ing in other lands. (Great apph,u:c.)
A large delegation from Medina coun
ty. thio, numbering more than l.u"t,
called at 12.H0. There were bands and u
good glee club with It, which sang pop
ular campaign songs while the throng
was mnndiiiig Into Major McKinley'

rousing reception when he rose to speak.
In addressing the delegation from
Medina county und Beret, Major Mc
Kinley said:

party has been designated to carry the
banner that represents those great princi
ples, (a voice, "Gloty to God") and men of
all political pnrtleg this year are rallying
around that banner because It embraces
what thev believe is for the best of the
people and the glory of the great re
public. Not one third of the Marietta people
had moved away when a delegation of
seven hundred voters from Guernsey
county .Indiana, marched up.
In addressing the Indiana delegation
Major McKinley spoke as follows:
A government lor the people winch rests
upon the consent of the government Is a
government that can be made by the peo
ple lo express Just such policies as they
believe will besl subserve their own in
terests. You will have an opportunity
one week from next Tuesday to express
by your Individual ballots what you think
of the great questions that divide us this
year. They are questions which ought
not to be troublesome in rightful determi
nation. The question aa to whether good
money or poor money Is wanted should
not create doubt in any mind. We want
good money, good at home and good
abroad, and good all the time, and wiien
we huve parted with our work and labor,
or our products, we want something In
return of stable value, and that is the
kind of money we have now gold, sil
ver and paper all alike, all equal In pur
chasing and debt paying power, made

Si .tcs ts; trouble Is not with money;

I.") it Is the lost market that the
f Ji iie r wants back again. It Is our splen
did home market that has buen surren-
dered. This is all there is to this question
so far as the tariff and finance are con
cerned. It is not a lack of money, bill a
lack of markets. What we want to do is
to get tinck that confidence and we cannot
do it unless you defeat the parly that
destroyed that confidence. It Is all in your
own hands. 1 know the people of Indi
ana are in favor of law and order and of
honesty. (Cries of "Ami of Major Mo
Kinley.'') You are In favor of goo J money,
good limes and good markets. You know
how you lost some of them and you know
the direct route to set them back again,
and if you do not follow In that wnyj I
shall be veiy much surprised.

the isl.s except Guudulcanas, on which
there is a mountain called the Lion's

by the I ii. As he appeared, two '
shots w. n- lir -d lower down the.niotin- I
tain f'oin the direction of the camp.
The shots seemed to be a signal for the
chief to attack the boron's party.
Bushmen from a score of places at once
rushed out and the baron wus struck
ou the neck with a tomahawk, while a
crowd of btishmi-ii attacked the rest
of the pally with clubs. The native win
had cut down the ban hi was promptly
shot by n sailor Lieutenant Budlck
ulso put bis revolver lo good use. A
sailor had lo prol"ct hints -If with a
tomahawk In- had wresied from a
native. The oilier sailors were well
armed and the biisliinen finally had to '
retreat In the woods, many of hem
I wounded. It was thought th- baron
would recover, but he gi.uliiullv sank
after had walked bai-k to the i-ampund

The siglil when die party returned to
the camp was a bloody one. Midship
man Ue B-aufort had been cut to death
and three sailors and a native guide
had ulso been killed. Six sailors and
one guide had been wotimjcd.
The news was sent to Cuptnin Mnu

Scenes of Wild Excitement in the
Chicago Pit Rush of the
Chicago. Oct. 22. D'-cember wheat
took another bl;- inr.ibl- nn the board
of trade today and the wild excite
ment on 'Chun!.',- which accompanied
the collapse hindered on a panic. There
was a fail of -'::t cents from yesterday ;!
closing price, exceeding the advance
for any day since the sensationfil up
ward movement betvun in this country
and abroad. Lale in ihe day tln-ro was
a recovery and the highest point dur
ing the morning session was 74'.., cents.
The closing price wa.s 70'i cents. To
wards the closing hour ihe slump was
so rapid Ihnt drops of a cent and more
found no bidders. The pi'i"e went from
7- to 71 Vi cents In five minutes.
The scenes In the pit were such as
board of trade history hits made of
them. There was a frantic rushof sellers
on the strength of n rumor that Cud
nhy had .joined Armour in unloading
his holdings. Thousands of bushels
were dumped on the market, but there
were no buyers who could keep pace
with the quantify offered. There were
some heavy losses. , The main cause of
ihe decline was said to be failure to
secure advances from the banks for
buying cash wheat.

Covington, Ky., Oct. 22. John G. Car
lisle, secretary of the treasury, spoke
this evening at Odd Fellows' hall in the
Interest of Bound money Democracy.
The hall is not a large one but had it

Carlisle appeared on the stage. The
majority of Ihe audience, however, were
In sympathy with the speaker and
drowned the hisses in vociferous cheer
ing. The disturbers compelled the sec
retary to stop several times during the
early part of his speech, but were fin
ally quieted, by Mayor Hhinock and
with the execution of a few Isolated
yells for Bryun no further trouble oc
curred. A counter demonstration wns
held by the silverites in the street in
I'rniil of the building, but it in no way
Interfered with the meeting Inside the
During the interruption in the earlier
part of the mooting the secretary re
quested those who did not care to hour
Iii in speuk lo leave the hall.
Secretary Carlisle begun his address
by sayinif:
I have come here lo spcaK ill behalf of
I eiiu.,-ialic. candid. lies pledged tu the
principles of u Deuioeialie platform, and
in purpose is to discuss some of the
pending political questions from a purely
1 leiiiin ratlc standpoint. We ore not Ite
piiblieans, or Popnlisls, or fnsioiiisls; we
are simply plain, old-fashioned Democrats,
without any modern adulterations In our
locti'ines. or nay Populislic of commiiuisi
Ic appendages lo our organization.
Then he proceeded to nnalyize what
I lie principles of Democracy Wore
ineuning American Democracy not
' that wild, turbulent, and destructive
form of Democracy, which has been
imported from abroad and which Is so
nearly allied lo anarchy that It is al
most impossible lo distinguish one from
the other."
of the candidates of the nutioiiul
Democracy he said:
John M. Palmer nnd Simon B. liin-kner
are not strangers to the American people;
they were not discovered yesterday by
the bewildered delegates to a political con.
venlion, and they will not be forgotl--n
when the sound and fury of this remark
able campaign have subsided. They are
sol di rs and statesmen, ripe with tliu ex
pt rleiice derived from long public ser
vice at crucial periods In our history, and
they stand conspicuously In this contest
for law and order, for the inviolability if
contracts, lor the independence and man
hood of all classes of our people, for just
and equal taxation for public purposes
only, for a sound and stable currency, and
for Ihe maintenance of the national an.
thorlty und national honor under all cir
in regard to the question of the reg
ularity of their nominution he said:
Lei us Inquire for a momeiy how f ir
considerations of regularity ale inlluen -
ing the actions of our critics in this cam
paign. The nominations made at Chicago
have been partially repudiated hy thu very
men who m ule them in a majority of the
slates in the union. The national and
state coininitlces apoplnted to carry on tile
campaign and pledged to the support of
the nominees of the Chicago convention
to the support of one just as much as to
the support of the other have In 2B or 27
stales deliberately entered into arrange
mcius and combinations to deprive one of
the nominees of a large num lie r of elect
oral votes and give them lo another can.
illdLite not nomlnnteil by that convention,
nor hv any other convention even pretend
leif to be Democratic: and yet these gen
tlemen have the assurance to call us
traitors, and the presidential candidate
himself, who has countenanced and en
couraged Ihe sacrifice of his associate on
his ticket, whose nomination was as regu.
lar as his own, tells us that we cannot
"get back Into the Democratic parly un
less we come in sackcloth and ashes."
Gentlemen, we nre not out of the Dem
ocratic party, and we do not Intend to go
out or be put out.
Then he discussed what past Demo
cratic platforms had been in the finan
cial question contrasting them with
the Chicago declaration in favor of the
free coinage of silver at 16 to 1. He
Notwithstanding all that has been said,
or may be hereafter said to the contrary,
we hime now a distinct monetary system
of our own, freely adopted by our own
legislation without dictation from, or con
siiltnlion with, any other nation in the
world: and we have the right and the
power to change It, or abolish It altogether
whenever we choose-. -The excited orators
who are traversing tho land In every di
rection vexing the ears of the people with
a. reiteration of the statement that there
Is some uarty or some body of men in
this country denying the right or author
ity ot tne i nueu mates to cnange us
monetary system without the consent of
some other nation, are simply evading the
real questions at issue and misrepresent
ing the position of their opponents, for the
purpose of making unworthy appeals to
the passions and prejudices of their alllPS.
The question Is not whether the United
Slates ulone have the power to adopt
free coinage and silver monometallism,
but whether. In view of our own domestic
conditions and Interests, and of our ex
tensive commercial and financial relations
with the other great civilized nations of
tho world. It would be good policy and
good fulth to make such a radical change
In our currency and such a wholesale le
pudlntion of our obligations. It Is not a
question of power; it is not a question of
nntionnl independence; but It is a question
of national prosperity and national honor.
Secretary Carlisle proceeded to dis
cuss at length the economic effects ot
free silver coinage.
In opposition to any such policy as
that proposed by the Chicago and Pop
ulista convention he urged that by hold
ing fast to the best money the people
would always have the best things that
money could buy.
Let us preserve the credit and honor of
your country and we will always have tho
respect und confidence of Ihe world and
can command its surplus capital on the
most favorable terms for the development
of our resources and Ihe Improvement of
our social conditions. Let us see to It
that labor is not cheated with a false
token and that the farmer' shall not be
required to exchange his products for a
depreciated currency. Let us preserve for
the use of all the people the dollar of our
fathers, u dollar worth lot) cents every
where. Turning to other parts of the plat
form, Mr. Carlisle said:
That the people were threatened with a
social and political revolution of the
gravest kind, a revolution which If suc
cessful, would subvert the fundamental
principles upon which the government
was founded, tax the private Industries ef
the people out of existence and convert
our system Into a socialistic despotism.
When to this extravagant and demoraliz
ing scheme wns added that other revolu
tionary feature of the Chicago platform,
tiie substantial avowal of a purpoe to
make ihe Judiciary part of tho political
machine by reconstructing Ihe supreme
court in order to dictate its judgments
upon questions of constitutional law, a,
plan of operations was proposed more
dangerous to our Institutions than was
ever suggested by any party in the past.
In concluding his remarks concerning
money, Mr. Carlisle said:
if not artificially obstructed by bad
local laws, or hy war or other adverse In
lluenees, the supply of good money would
always maintain its proper relation to tho
demand of every country, because, when
the volume becomes unduly depressed In
one place, the deficiency will be Immedi
ately made good from other places where
Ihe demand is not great and where tho
profits of it are not so large.
What do we tee going on at this very
moment? By reason of excessive accumu
lation of money at the financial centers of
Knrope, the high rates of Interest pre
vailing at New York and elsewhere in
this country and the condition of our in.
lernational trade, more than sixty mil
lions in gold have been brought here dur
ing the last two months, and it is still
coining. I can assure our suspicious
friends that there Is nothing artificial in
this movement of gold that it is the na
tural and iicccssuryaresult of the existing
financial conditions on the opposite side
of the Atlantic and that It will cease
whenever the equilibrium is substantially
restored, whether that Is before or afler
the elction, it will certainly cease after
Ihe election whether the equilibrium is
restored or not. If the people of the Unit
ed Stales by their votes inaugurate tho
pclicy of free coinage at the ratio of Pi to
1, and the gold which favorable balances
and prolilable rates of Interest have 1 e
ci ntly brought to our shores will depart
from us us rapidly us the fastest ships
an curry It across the ocean. Our treas
ury reserve will be Immediately exhausted,
the gold held by the people und financial
Institutions will cease to he used as money,
the circulation will be suddenly and eiior-moil.-dy
curtailed not only by the with
drawal of gold, but on account of the in
evitable panic which will prevail in every
part of tiie coital ry. and we shall enter at
once upon a long period of suffering and
distress iinpnrnlelleil In our history. Un
til I have not lost all confidence in Ihe in.
tclllaeiice und puirlolism of the American
people and I cannot believe that they will
deliberately Incur the risk of Industrial
and commercial ruin, merely for tbe pur
pose of making a financial experiment
which Is opposed to all dictates of sound
reason and condemned by the experience
of ull mankind.

history, of American uninersiiles has
there been an assemblage of so many

Professor Fisher In responding to his
toast said:
There Is an extreme philosophical scepll
elsm occasionally to be met witn which
remands theology to the realm of things
obsolete, lowering it to the rank of as
trolcgy. If theology were to perish at the hands
of the sciences to which, indirectly at
least, It has given blrlh. It would be an
Instance of a pun nt developed by its own
olispring. lint this abolition of theology
can never take place. Religion can never

were the speakers. Mr. Stone was first
introduced. He said in part:
"I feel we have a great duty to per
form. The occasion demands the up
rising of just such a stamp of men as
those that took the noble work of lStil
In hand.
"I want to enll your attention to the
campaign of 1S92, when the Democrats
told us that all we needed to secure good
times was free trade. Then the Repub
licans helped the Democrats to elect
Cleveland. This year the Democrats
will help the Republicans to elect Mc
Kinley. We do not want nny more
free trade in this country. We do not
want free silver because we cannot have
free silver without free trade. We have
tried the free trade curlsts for four
years. We are too sick and weak to
stand a second dose of their bad last
ing medicines. Four years ago this
country was prosperous. It was never
so prosperous before. But we wanted
to improve It. We know the result.
Men out of work cared for by chnrtjv,

Wilson tariff bill.
"We nre now on the eve of the elec

to continue under the present ruinous
tariff measure or whether we ure to
have a return to the McKinley bill and
prosperity. We have every advantage
in tills country in (he mutter of pro

labor only can compete with us. A

"Tbe proposition lo have two mone

Is equally absurd to suy that the gov

legiilutes the price of every commo

prices fall. Kent-iit the law of

was most enthusiastically received.
During his s.ieeoh he was often com
pelled to pause on account of the cheer

vital questions of the campaign he re
ferred to the county ticket, and as
each name was mentioned there was
a burst of applause that fairly shook
the building.
Chairman Kimball also occasioned a
sto-m of applause bw his mention of
the name of John F. Reynolds, the

rousing cheers for the sneakers and
