Canton, C,, Sept. 11.—The delegation of ]0. ; '. Vertnonter.s, who camo to tell Maj. McKinley about the rrpublicnn victory in the Green Mountain state, arrived at nine o'clock Friday morning and mnrchcd at once to the candidate's residence. The delegation was escorted by a full ttind and a large number of citi'/ens of CaJiton, some mounted and some unmounted. The Vermont delegation, bearers of good tidings and jrood cheer for republicans, ixere ::p- plauded all along Ihe line of march. When they arrived n1 the house Senator J'roctor, Gov, Woodbury, Gov.-elect Grout, Cor.gressmon Powers, Lieut. Gov. Mansur, Lieut. Gov.-clect X. W. Fiske, oC Isle La Mottc, with Hie speakers, went inlo the study to uv.'et Maj. McKiniey. State Chairman Merrill, whc delivered the first speech, declared that the battle in Vermont hntl been foughtsole- ly on national issues and was won bc- ca.nse the. freemen of !he state had, after One deliberation, rejected whh uu- alternble detonninaUon\he pernicious heresies of our opponents. The 39,000 plurality was by 2,000 the hrge-t plurality given any party within the history of the state in a gubernatorial election. Col. George T. Childs, naliou-il com- niittcenia.il from Vermont, followed. He referred to the important part Vermont played iji the. nomination and closed by saying: "While we'arc proud to place the tribute of Vermont upon the brow of honor and aj> knowleduo a just pride in the overwhelm- Infr verdict of last Tuesday, we can.

In no case and at no point do they propose a system to pay out national and private obligations jOn.thc plain, old-fashioned principles of (rood faith and honesty which have always distinguished, the American people, . . . ... . . On the silver question Maj. McKinley said: ' ' ' . , JHractically admitting that the effect of :he-free, unlimited and independent coinage of silver would be an Immense loss to he savings nnd resources of our people-, nnd -that Its adoption' would rf-duce the plane, of. their social and Industris! condt- ion, "they yet .seriously propose that wo shall I'lslc this hazardous experiment. Vermont has said In tones that cannot be misunderstood that she will havenothlnRtodo' with that fatal: experiment,, [Great ap- ilause and cries .of. "Good! Good!"] Jn- leed, they -are urging us to attempt hy eglslatlon to make EO cents' worth' of silver o pass current as a lepral tender, 100-cent dollar, good for all public and private oh- Igatlons. The mere -statement of tho prop- sltion ought to lead to Its instant rejec- lon. We cannot .by law make every man honest, but we certainly never will make law encouraging them-to.be dishonest. Applause.] To me the question of free trade is a ques- Ion ot humanity, the voice of labor plead- ng for Its own, and the question of free Filer is a tiuestlori of public morality, honor nd good faith,' and its success would be blot to our hitherto spotless national redit. [Applause,] Obscure the real IH- iie. and it finally resolves itsoll into that. The Vermont, visitors were the recip- cnts of much cordial kindness on their western journey, and were handsomely entertained in Cleveland Thursday night., They left for the wist at 11 o'clock Friday. Mr. T. M. Dial, of.St. Albans, who has the largest creamery in the world, presented Maj. McKinley with a bas-relief portrait of himself and Mr. Hobart Artistically done in butter. '• After Maj. McKinley's speech to.the Vermont delegation, Senator Proctor, Gov. Woodbury, Cong-reKsinan Power?, Cov.-eiect Grout and Lieui. Gov. Mansur made short speeches. ct "Mr. McKinley Is not Kolng to take th« Ktump. The democrats would undoubtedly like very much to seo him chasing over the country in a wild scramble for votes, as Mr. Bryan hits Inslstod upon doing. Mr. McKinley will continue to conduct himself ns a. man who appreciates the (U%- nlty and Importance .of the position ho seeks. He will not lend himself to any catch-penny scheme for the sake of satisfying the curious or making himself talkc-d about. I have heard this subject discussed, and I think J know what I am talking about when J say Mr. McKinley will continue to address the people who vlult him at Canton." CONFIDENT OF FINAL TRIUMPH. John Daly, tho Irlnli Dynamiter, StU] Hopeful for Irish CUUDO. London, Sept. :i.— John Daly, th« Irish dynamiter, who was released from Portland prison on August 20, returned from his visit to Paris Friday ,-ind will go to Limerick Saturday. In an interview with a representative of the press, Daly said that he was getting stronger, but he is still tremulous and acutely afflicted with nervousness. Spenldngol his prison experience, he said: "My prison life was too dreadful to think about. The English prison system it brutal at the best, but it is applied to Irish prisoners with the CuJJest severi- !y. The officials of Portland prison wera for a long time aware that Gallaghei and Whitehead were insane and the six Jj'isb political prisoners who are still confined ir. Portland arc a.'l ill. Ofie ol them I believe to be already insinc." 1 Daly in conclusion saitl that he iva« still confident of the ultimate triumph ,of the Irish cause.
