turn visit to Massachusetts by deliver
ing; at Fltchburg another speech on the
trust question, In order that he might
fully answer Ills critics and to more
clearly define his attitude on that sub
ject. He also launched Into a derenso
of the army In the Philippines, in his
speech at Springfield. The Impression
had gone forth that any views he might
express regarding the acquisition of
territory by the United States would
be sure to be coldly received, but the
demonstrations of approval which
greeted his utterances dispelled this
Frequent stops again were made to
day and at each place the president de
livered a speech. Fltchburg's reception
ans notable for the size of the crowd
and the enthusiasm which the people
displayed. While riding up the street
the president was given a shower bath
of roses. A canopy of bunting had been
erected and from the center was sus
pended a huge bell. As the president's
carriage passed under it, an unseen
hand loosened the covering of the bell
and an avalanche of loose roses fell on
him. There was another interesting
feature. In the midst of the silence
which reigned while the president was
giving his views on the trust question,
"Viva la presidente!" rang out in a
sharp voice and a Cuban patriarch who
Kave expression to this sentiment was
loudly applauded.

In the arternoon at Worcester the

7 and 5 years, respectively, whom he
had saved from being deported through
the influence of Senator Hoar.
At Springfield another hearty greet
ing was given the president. The ad
dress there followed a brief visit to the
National armory. On the way to the
train the president's carriage stopped
in front of the Veterans' Memorial
home, and he spoke a few words, to the
old soldiers who had drawn up In front
of the house.
In the course of his tour of the Now
England states, the president has
availed himself of each opportunity to
make complimentary references to the
members of his official family. Tonight,
however, Secretary Cortelyou came In
for his praise.
At Wcstlleld, the scene of the boy
hood days of tlio president's helper, a
stop of half an hour was made. Ap
plause was loud and continuous when
he mentioned the secretary's name.

Col. McClure Announces That
He Will Support Judge
By Exchuhc Wire from The Associated Pi cm.
Philadelphia, Sept. 2 The state con
vention of the Union party will con
vene in Musical Fund hull, here, at 11
o'clock tomorrow. Tho leaders of tho
party expect about COO delegates, rep
resenting nearly every county in the
state, in attendance. A large number
or delegates are already here, but the
majority of them will not arrive before
morning. The Indications tonight are
that the Democratic state ticket nomi
nated at Erie will be endorsed. There
is a big minority and a strong fight will
be made to have the convention either
endorse Samuel W. Pennypacker, the
Republican gubernatorial candidate, i)r
nominate an Independent ticket. The
state commitee of the party held a
meeting at the Continental hotel to
night and selected the oflleers of the
convention. It was unanimously de
cided that Thomas L. Hicks, ex-postmaster
of Philadelphia, shall be the
temporary chairman. Colonel George E.
Mnpes, of this city, will be secretary,
and V. E. Boyer, of Lebanon; ex-Rep-resentative
Plummer E. Jefferls, of
Chester county, and Henry Davis, of
Allegheny, will be assistant secretaries.
John B. Bendell, ex-representative of
Chester county, offered a resolution,
which was adopted with only one dis
spnting vote, declaring' it to bo tho sen
timent of the state committee that the
convention should endorse Ttobert E.
Pattison for governor and George AV.
Guthrie for lieutenant governor nnd
that an independent Republican should
bo nominated for secretary of internal
Committees on credentials and on
platform were appointed. The creden
tials coiiimlttee will sit all night and
report to the state convention at 8.30
a. m.
There was a rumor current tonight
that a faction of the party may at
tempt to seize the hall and a force of
men was placed In the building tonight
to prevent any attempt on the part of
the opposition to take physical posses
sion of the place.
Colonel A. K. McClure. of tills city,
one of the original leaders or the Union
party, today sent a letter to State
Chairman Frank M. Itlter, resigning as
a member of the Union state commit
tee. In ills letter Mr. McClure says
that "the contest for delegates to tho
Union state convention was made a
grotesque and pitiable mockery of tho
high alms and patriotic efforts of the
spontaneous political upheaval that
called more than ."0,000 Republicans in
this city to evolution action one year
ago, and that asserted Its omnipotence
in the eastern and anthracite sections
of tho state.
"From the day that the Union state
convention was called, ingenuity, trick
ery and corruption have been employed
oy tno machine leaders of both parties
to pack tho convention for one or tho
other of the two leading candidates for
governor." Mr. McClure further says
that ho will support Judge Penny
packer for governor,

Guffoy, held a conference In this city

It is a notorious fact that Democrats
have been after Union party delegates
right and left for weeks. The result
of this Is that -the Democratic owners
or the Union party have demanded an
endorsement or Pattlson and Guthrie
or else they will "rough" the conven
tion and make a scene.
The people, in charge or the -Republican
state headquarters have kept
themselves fully Informed of the move
ments of the Democrats in their work
of capturing the independent remnant
in this city and state. An agent of
the party went Into Washington coun
ty and offered tho delegates of the
Union party there free transportation
and all expenses to Philadelphia If
they would vote to endorse Pattlson.
In tills city the most unusual proceed
ings have been resorted to to capture
delegates In the interest or the Demo
cratic party.
A Democrat for Senator.
It is now understood that the deal
between the Union party promoters
and the Democratic managers includes
not only the indorsement of the Demo
cratic state ticket, but nn arrangement
for the selection of candidates for the
legislature who will be pledged to vote
for a Democrat for United States sena
tor and the support of Democrats and
Unionists of a fusion candidate for
mayor of Philadelphia next spring.
In the promotion of the mayoralty
scheme it is understood the so-called
Union party state convention will un
dertake to authorize a reconstruction
of the Philadelphia Union ward and
city committees along the lines calcu
lated to promote the deal already en
tered into. This means that nn effort
will be made to depose men In Phila
delphia who favor Judge Pennypacker
and substitute. Democrats or those who
are in harmony with the Democratic
scheme, '
A sample of the work they have been
carrying on was furnished the other
night In this- city. Members of the
Union party committee of the Thir
teenth ward met at Eighth street and
Falrmount avenue and elected Louis
Meunch and William McGowan as dele
gates to the state convention, Instruct
ing them to support ex-Judge Penny
packer for governor. The meeting,
which was presided over by Joseph
Welnrlch, was Invuded by members of
the Democratic ward executive com
mittee, who wished to throw the sun
port of the convention to Robert E.
Falling in their efforts to stampede
the convention the Democrats bolted,
and held a second convention at G21
North Seventh street, where they elect
ed representatives for Pattlson,
A Packed Convention.
The Union party has held no pri
maries. A few men have gathered hero
and there and they have chosen their
delegates. In some cases there has been
snap Judgment and In other enses two
sets of delegates have been elected
from the same districts, But tho Pat
tlson delegates will be admitted to tho
convent Jon,
Of course there will bo some Penny
packer men In the convention, but the
Pattlson men control tho machinery of
tie party by purcliuse nnd they will
see to It that Pattlson has a majority
In tho convention, It will be a packed
gathering and tho Pennypacker dele
gates will not stand a chance of being
treated fairly.
