STIRRING SPEECHES OP THE DAY
A Comparison of the Prosperity of
1802 and the Difficulties of the
PrcsentIt Is Not the Lack of
Money but the Lack or Opportunity
to Make Money That Causes
Canton. O.. Oct. 23. Before sunrise
this morning a party of visitors from 1
the Iloosier state came to Canton to I
pay their respects to the Republican j
candidate for president. They were the ,
first callers today. The delegation rep
resented Logansport, New Castle, Ko
kumo, Anderson and Richmond. After
breakfast the party was escorted to
Major iMcKinley's residence by the
Canton citizens' committee. Major Mc
Kinliy, In addressing the delegation,
Four years ago it was said to the people
of this country, who were under pros
perity ami heulthy conditions, that they
were suffering, and that free trade would
cure all the ills, real or supposed, they had,
and that It would be the panacea for rll
thidr troubles. We did not have many
troubles then very much fewer than we
have now. ilut we tried the prescription
they offered us and voted for free trade.
You men know better the result of that
vote by your experience of the last three
and a half years than I can tell you. Hid
It bring anything but Injury and distress
to the country? ("No, no.") Now they
propose having got us Into Hits condition,
to get us out of It by the free coinuKe ef
silver. Tills Is the cure they offer for
all our present ills. If you started all
the minis of this country working to
their fullest capacity and extent you
would not increase the demand for labor,
corn or any American product, anil you
would not Increase wages.
The cry is that we have not enough
money. Now everybody knows that Is
not true. We never had such prosperous
times us In IS'jJ, and we have just as miKli
money now ns we had then. It is not a
luck of money that Is at fault. It is the
difficulty of putting men to work and
creating markets for our products. You
cannot make ."2-cents a dollar and make a
gold dollar worth Urn cents circulate along
slde of it. The gnlil dollar will go out and
every paper dollur based on gold will co
out. and there will be less circulating
medium, and instead of the good money
we now have, we shall have poor money.
Can you tell me how the free cobiage ef
sliver is going to help business? U will
not Increase the demand for anything b it
sliver. There will be an Increase in the
production of silver, but then down goes
the price of silver and then yon will have
to consult your paper every morning to
see what silver Is wovth. A voice, "1
have been In Mexico antTknow that's so.")
We do not want such money In the V'nit
ed States. We want dollars worth lm
cents. It is the lost job that Is troubling
us. It Is not money, but the market that
is troubling us.
THE KANSAS DELEGATION.
"Hip, rah. re."
"She's fur McKlnley."
This was the shout which greeted
Major McKlnley when he stepped out
on his porch at noon to address two
hundred Santa Fe railroad men from
Emporia and Topeka, Kansas.
The delegation came a thousand
miles to see Major McKlnley, and had
been on the cars for thirty-four hours,
but their enthusiusm was unbounded.
They cheered, and shouted, and ap
plauded for several minutes. This dele
gation came a greater distance to visit
Major. McKlnley than any of his other
callers. He addressed It as follows
You have journeyed farther than nnv
orher delegation of the United Stales that
has honored me with a visit at my home,
and I appreciate it more than 1 can tlnd
words to speak. It shows better than any
worns that could be uttered what Is in
your minds and hearts and what your
purposes are in the election to be held on
Nov. 3. You are interested in the pros
perity of your country. There was a time
when some men were In the habit of say
ln It did not make any difference to the
railway men of the country what kind of
a llnancii'.l policy we had or what kind of
a tariff policy we pursued. I have heard
It a thousand times frm the rostrum thut
while the tariff might help the men en
gaged in the factories. It had no influence
upon the wages of the men who were en
Kaged upon the great transportation lln':s
of the country. If any of you believed
that statement four years ntjo, you do not
believe it now. (Cries of "That's right.")
lieeause you know that upon the general
prosperity of the country depends vour
employment and wnj.es. In the last three
years and a half no property has suffered
more than the railroads; many of th"m
have been compelled to no into bank
ruptcy; many of them have been unable
to pay either their bonds or their Interest
on them; and thut is only because the
change of iw.2 settled paralysis upon the
buslners of the l.'nlted States.
What we want is. first, a market for the
products f the great west, so that you can
haul those products from the west to thi
eastern shore and not have products sent
tliem from the other side of the Atlantic.
Yon want that as Interested railroad men;
but you do not want a cheap dollar anv
how. This Is not a cheap country. (A
voice, "And this is not a cheap crowd.")
We have today the best money in the
world, but the trouble Is It dues not circu
late. As I ha'"c said before, money does
not make business business makes
money. Money does not bring work. It Is
work that brings money. So all the years
of my public life, I have been advocating
an industrial policy that will protect the
American producer against the cheaper
firoducts of other countries and other
and. (Cries of "Hurrah for McKlnley.")
A delegation unique in character
came next. It was composed of mem
bers of the state association of Penn
sylvania, directors and overseers of the
poor. The association has been holding
Its annual session In Pittsburg and the
members decided to call on Major Mc
Klnley today before departing for their
homes. Major McKlnley addressed
them brlelly, saying: "Your spokesman
has very well said that the way to de
crease the Moor list Is to Increase the
opportunity for work, (Applause). And
If there Is one thins more than an
other that a Republican party desires
it Is that every man beneath our flag
who wants to work shall have an op
portunity to do so. '
The fourth delegation was a large one
from several counties In Northwestern
Ohio. There were 1,400 voters in the
The last delegation, the largest one of
the day, came from Armstrong county,
Pa. There were 2,500 men In line when
the delegation marched up with Its
band playing lively airs. Robert Nay
fynlth spoke for the plate glass workers
in the delegation and presented Major
McKlnley with a large mirror made at

Topeka, Kan., Oct. 23. There was an
affecting scene at the bedside of O. W.
Whiteside, an oldf soldier, who died In

Washington. Oct. 23. Hon. Lewis) D.
Aiisdey, vice chairman of the Republi

gave out the following statement:
On Sept. 7 I predicted that Major Mckin

I concede to Mr. Bryan but 71 electoral
votes, as follows:
Montana I 3

About ten days ago Chairman Babcock
estimated that we would elect not less
than 194 Republican members to the next
house. The information we have since
received justifies me in predicting now the
election of at least 224 sound money Re
publicans to the Fifty-fifth congress. Mr.
Wabcock Is malting a vigorous and aggres
sive fight and I believe his efficient work
between now and election day Will mate
rially increase this number.
I look for some phenomenal majorities
In a great many states. In my own state,
Massachusetts. I expect to see Major Mc
Kinley's majority more than 125.UHU, and
the majorltv for our candidate for gover
nor, Roger Wulcott. will exceed this num
ber, in view of the fact that the Democrat.

Spot wheat was very firm today, but It
was not following futures downward, be

Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23. Hon. Charles
Frederick Crisp, speaker of the fifty
first and fifty-second congresses, died
at Holmes' sanitarium here at 1.45
o'clock this afternoon. A paroxysm of
pain in the heart preceded death, the
paroxysm probably resulting from a
rupture of the heart as the result of
Judge Crisu came to Atlanta six
weeks ago for treatment. He was then
suffering from a typical case or mal
arial fever which had developed at
his home In Americus.
Judge Crisp Improved slowly until
last week he was out driving sev
eral times, and he was getting stronger
until Sunday night, when he was at
tacked with symptoms of his old
trouble, pneumonia. On Tuesday the
congestion of the lungs disappeared,
but the patient was so weak that Mrs.
Crisp telegraphed for her children, and
all came next day. On Wednesday and
yesterday Judge Crisp's condition im
proved and his family were hopeful un
a paroxysm of pain near the heart. At
midnight there was another attack
and they continued at Intervals ' all
through the night and forenoon. He
suffered intense pain but was conscious
up to the very last.
Judge Crisp was one of the leaders
of the silver movement In Georgia and
on that Issue the state overwhelmingly
Indorsed htm for the United States sen
ate, to which he would have been elect
ed almost unanimously by the legisla
ture, which meets next Wednesday.
His death at this time complicates the
situation and may lead to a bitter tight
for the senatorshlp. Perhaps other of
fices will be involved too.
Judge Crisp declined to contest for
renomlnatlon to the house. While the
funeral arrangements have not been
completed It has been decided that the
body will lie in state at the capltol
tomorrow and addresses will be de

CAUSE OP HIS ILLNESS.
The serious illness of ex-Speaker
Crisp and the probability of Us ter
minating fatally have been known to
his Intimate friends for some time,
but have only been spoken of crmM
dentially. His aliment took Its origin
In the excitement arising out . of his
joint debate with Secretary Hoke Smith
last summer. When he was forced to
withdraw from that debate for physical
reasons, his friends persuaded him to
enter a sanitarium for treatment. He
was subject to heart disease. Reassur
ing reports as to recovered health have
apprared from time to time, but they
have largely discounted by those fully
informed as to the facts.
Mr. Crisp was one of the best liked
men in Congress. He commanded the
respect of friends and opponents by
his cbility und his generally unruffled
Judicial fairness, which was broken
upon only once or twice during the bit
ter controversy with Speaker Read
over the Reed rules. He was born In
Sheffield, England, where his parents
had gone on a visit in 1S45, and tills
fnct took him out of the category of
vice presidential possibilities when
some years ago his name wns sug
gested tor that office. He was brought
to the United States before he was a
year old, was educated in Savanah
and Maccn. Ga., served in the Con
federate army and was mad ? prisoner,
was admitted to the bar in lS'W, be
came successively State solicitor gen
era! judge, congressman and speaker
of the Horse of Representatives in the
Siil ard C?d congresses. His congres
sional career In the lower House ex
tended over fourteen yens, nnd he was
ih choice of his party for United
States bene tor when he died.
First Volume Containing Consular Com
pilations Is Issued from the Depart
ment at Washington.
Washington, Oct. 23. The secretary
of state sent an instruction to the dip
lomat Ic and consular officers of the Uni
ted Stntes July 25 last, directing them
that as "In view of the great popular
interest in this country In the currency
question, the experience of other na
tions becomes a matter of immediate
importance" to prepare a report of the
currency of the countries to which they
were accredited showing among other
things, the nature of the standard of
value, amount of money In circulation,
the effect of the existing currency on
manufacturing industries, rates of la
bor, and agricultural products and
prices. It was stated that the object
of the department is to set forth the
actual conditions In every country of
the world In order that the people of the
United States n.ay be accurately In
formed as to the practical effects on in
dustrial activity, prices of commodities,
and wages of the various systems of
currency in force.
The department today Issude the first
volume consisting of 270 pages of these
reports covering all the reports so far
received. Including those of European
and South American countries, Mexico
and Central America. Frederick Em
ory, chief of the department bureau
of statistics, who is In charge of the
publication, summarises the report as
While it is evident, from the many varia
tions In prices of the commodities and
rates of wages prevailing during the past
ten years, as disclosed in detail In the re.
ports, an exact expression of the general
results cannot be given within the com
pass of a single table; It is possible to
group together statements as to the na
ture of the currency and the per capita
circulation and an approximation to the
freneral changes In prices and wages the
ncrease or decrease In each country
treated of. Two Important faots seem to
have been established, viz.:
First That there has been a general de
cline In', the prices of commodities, espe
cially In certain raw products throughout
the world. It Is claimed, on the one hand
that this decline In prices Is due to scarc
ity of money, and on the other hand that
It Is to be attributed to progress In Inven
tion and Increased production both of raw
materials and manufacturers, causing
keener competition, with the Inevitable
accompaniment of lower prices. It will te
noted that lb Mexico prices have ben
steadier for articles which could be most
profitably extorted for gold, and that
sharp fluctuations, due to local scarcity
of product, have occurred In such articles
s wheat and corn, in -which the prices
have been generally downward in the
markets of the world.
Second That there has been a general
advance In wages, especially marked in
the leading Industrial countries, all of
which have either a single gold standard
or a double standard with a gold reserve.
MISSOURI TRAIN ROBBERY.

DUN'S WEEKLY REVIEW.
Advance of Wheat the Business Event of

New York, Oct. 23. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade will say: The
event of the week has been the sen
sational advance of wheat The rise
wab magnified Uy covering of specula
te sellers who imagined the advance
had gone too far, but was at the bot
tom based on an extraordinary for
eign demand. How great the shortage
In ordinary European supplies may be
Is the point of doubt and speculation,
but none now question that shipments
from the Pacific coast to India and the
decrease In Kussian yield are Import
ant, and the buying of enormous quan
tities for export, with engagements of
freight room at higher rates, express
the belief of European dealers.
The most striking features of indus
trial returns is the number of con
tracts conditioned upon the election.
These already are enough to make
business rather lively for a time, and
many others are pending which will
probably be held back until Nov. 1.
Buying of Bessemer pig at Pitts
burg causes a slight advance, and all
markets are strong for pig, but not for
I finished products. Very low prices are
made ror speedly delivery by mills
wanting work. The tone of the mar
ket It better and a decided increase of
orders appears in plates, about 3,000
tons for building vessels on the lakes,
and Instructural work at the west, ow
ing to contracts taken at Chicago for
buildings at Boston, Toronto and Min
neapolis. A reduction in nails is ex
pected. A sale of about five million
pounds were made of lake copper at
lO'.f cents to domestic consumers. Tin
is a shade higher at 13.80. The move
ment of currency to the Interior has
been only S3.SOO.000 for the week, and
the market for commercial loans has
been dull. The volume of business
shown by exchanges has been 8.7 per
cent, less than last year, and 9.6 per
cent, less than in 1892. Failures for
the week have been 274 in the United
States against 231 last year, and 60
in Canada against 38 last year.

AN INJUNCTION HAS BEEN GRANTED
The Delay Is Liable to Complicate

PermanentCrow Will Engage
Counsel and Fight Case with Vigor.
Philadelphia, Oct 23. An Important
step was taken to-day by the opponents
of Alexander Crow, Jr., the Demo
cratic and Independent Republican
candidate for sheriff of Philadelphia.
This move Is in the shape of a prelim
inary Injunction served upon thu coun
ty commissioners restraining them
from printing and distributing olilclal
ballots with the column known as the
"McKlnley Citizen's Ticket" upon it.
The Injunction Is the result of a bill
In equity asked for by Frank P. Hend

ward of this city, and who Is also one
of the Republican electors. The ground
upon which the injunction is granted
alleges that fraud was used to get this
column on the ticket. .
The Injunction was granted by Judge
Slmonton. of the Dauphin County
Court, and it was secured by John H.
Fow, a well-known Democ ratio politi
cian and lawyer of this city.
Judge Simonton wan taking part In
the exercises at Princeton College, and
he was visited there by Mr. Fow last
night When the papers were present
ed, the judge, accompanied Mr.
Fow to Pennsylvania and Issued the
Injunction prayed for. The hearing
has been fixed for Tuesday next at 2
o'clock p. m.. In Harrlsburg, and In the
meantime the printing of the ballots
has been stopped. This action upon the
part of the Dauphin County Court ia
of importance In all ' the counties of
the State, as for some time the county
commissioners in various sections of the
State have complained that the addi
tion of this column to this ballot makes
It unnecessarily large, and they can
not find printing presses in the country
newspaper ofliees sufficiently large to
EFFECT OF THE INJUNCTION.
In the event of the Injunction be
coming perpetual It will establish ex
actly the position of the rival candi
dates for sheriff of Philadelphia on the
ballot. Mr. Ashbridge's name will ap
pear In the regular Republican column
underneath the electoral ticket. Mr.
Crow's will be printed In three sep
arate columns, the regular Democratic,
the free silver and the McKlnley-Crow,
but In neither column will the name
appear conjointly with the Republican
This change, if sustained by the
Dauphin county court on Tuesday next,
will obviously be to the advantage
of Mr. Ashbridge. Mr. Crow will en
gage counsel and fight vigorously to
prevent the column being taken off the
County Commissioner Richmond, In
speaking of the Injunction, said that
the matter was of vital Importance to
them in one particular that of time.
"Even now we were hardly able to
have the ballots printed and distribut
ed before election day," he said, "and
this delay is going to complicate mat
ters considerably. With the hearing
fixed for next Tuesday it will leave us
but some three or four working days
in which the printer can do the work.
This represents the printing of over
half a million ballots, divided into
nearly a thousand lots for the 970 di
visions in the city. It will have to be
done, of course, and will be done, and
should the Injunction stand It will sim
plify matters considerably."
FALKNER'S BIG BLUFF.
He Claims That Bryan Will Be the Next
President and Snatches Figures
from the Air to Substantiate.
Washington, Oct. 23. Senator Faulk
ner, chairman of the Democratic con
gressional committee, talked more pos
itively today about the results of the
election than at any time up to this
"Mr. Bryan will be the next president
of the United States," said he. "The
information that has come to us during
the last week shows that nothing now
can stem the tide that has set In In his
direction. Kentucky Is good for 20,000
majority, and Maryland, which has tried
a year of Republican rule, will cast
her vote as does Kentucky. West Vir
ginia will shake oft the nightmare of
two years ago, and redeem herself In
the eyes of the country, both in the
presidential and congressional election.
It Is conceded by everyone that we will
carry everything west of the Missouri
river, and this, with the south, and
the states I have named, gives Mr. Bry
an 2;' votes, with but four necessary to
elect him. For these four he has the
states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa,
Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota to
draw from. Does anyone doubt that he
will get votes in some of these states?
If he carries Illinois we can lose four
of the states I have put In my estimate
and still win; If we carry Michigan and
Indiana we ran lose the same number
of states without harm. Minnesota will
elect Lind governor, and the same votes
that elect him will under the secret bal
lot, give the state to the Democratic
candidate for president. Michigan is
today safely Democratic. The election
Is all over but counting the vote, and I
say to you that Bryan will be the next
