At 10:00 a delegation of a thousand wool growers and business men from Harrison county, 0., arrived in Canton. This delegation started from Cadiz, the county seat, and home of the venerable diplomat and jurist, John A. Bingham, shortly after sunrise. As the majority of the men in the delegation arc farmers, early rising was no hardship for them. The Harrison county men were received in a handsome wny at the station by the Cunton mounted troop who escorted them to Maj. McKiuley's residence. The candidate had made a good many speeches in Harrison county— which is one of the greatest wool growing communities in the west—and he hns a large number of acquaintances and admirers there, many of wnom were among the visitors Monday. It w.'is this fact that accounted in a measure for ihe ardor of the greeting which Maj. McKinley received when he ap-. pen red on his'ront porch. The farmers of Harrison county cheered long and lustily. Ex-Attorney-General D. A. Jiollingsworth was spokesman. ' M»j. McKluloy'n Speech. Mr. U.ollingsworth's speech was loudly and enthusiastically applauded. When the people became quiet, Maj. McKinley stepped forward. There was a thunder of'applause and then he commenced his speech. It was addressed- to the wool 'growers' of the country and of Harrison county. Maj. McKinley spoke in part as follows: "It is especially gratifying to me to receive a visit from so many of the farmers and Tvool-Browers of Harrison county. There Is scarcely a county in the stato which Is so essentially agricultural as is yours. 1 You- have no large towns. You .have,but few factories, and your occupations are almost exclusively rural. Your county has long been noted as one of the yreat'agricultural sections-of the state, a.n.d especially.devoted to that branch, ol agriculture known as shcep-ralslns and wool-growing:. There'is probably no r-or- lion of. the ,-country ol i!»>-same area, fhal . has supported' so njany sheep as yours..and for 'rhuny years at least this was the moat •profitable Industry of your farmers.." "It Is not so Rood, I believe, now as formerly. [Laughter and applause and cries of 'No, no.'] ''•-.'. "The last three years have .been, years of great trial, not only to the wool-Brewers of your county, but to the.entire'country. 'You have seen your crops disappear and your ileeces diminish" In 1 -value to"an extent that ."prior "to 1S93 you would not h.ive believed was possible. ' "In all the years' In .which the republican party was In power you know that it.pave protection to Wool,- and In the act of ISM) gave'to this Industry increased protect-on. That law, the law of 1S90, gave to every agricultural product oC-this country, every farmer's product in this country, the best protection ever had before. Every protection that could be jrivcn to them against outside competition and to preserve the home market was always' cheerfully and generously accorded by the republican party, [Applause and cries of'That's right.'3 "Tl:c platform of the national republican party upon which '-we stand this year, much to my gratification, singles out the wool .industry and makes of It special mention as entitled to full protection."
