Presented to MI-M, Mt-Klnley. While conversing; with him in the pnrlor, Mrs. McKinley returned from a short drive and each of the party was presented to her. In several she found old friends, notably Gen. McCook, who is a native, and.for a long time was a resident of an adjoining- county. Before leaving the party was photographed seated under a tree in the front yard. All of them bore .way a memento of the visit in the shape of the' candidate's autograph under a suitable sentiment, Abner McKinley drove several of the gentlemen about ;tlie'city and surrounding- country for an hour or two. The New Yorkers left We are at 1:20 o'clock for home over the Pennsylvania railroad. There was no formality in the greeting's, but Maj. Me- Kinley conferred at some length with several members of the party over the outlook in New York for the campaign, ^fr, Bliss, who is president of the Tariff Ieagti6, ccpVcsscd the liveliest satisfaction over the situation^ fie Wai asked tvliat; in his opinion, would be the ef- fect.of the efforts now making by M.r. Whitney, Senators Gorman and Brice, nnd other democratic leaders, to stem the tree silver tide setting- in toward CJdcag-o. "I should not be surprised if tho result were a modified declaration of the money question and the nomination of n man whose.personal record would enable the party to make its fip-ht on him rather than on the platform." Siraiks lllk-lily of Molnirt. Gen. Horace Porter spoke to.Maj. McKinley quite enthusiastically • of Mr. Hobart, the vice presidential candidate. "He is a capital candidate in every •way," said the general. • "He is a man oi fine presence, dignified and handsome. He has a parliamentary experience as speaker of the New Jersey, house and president of the senate and make's a fine presiding- officer. He is near,-enough to be almost one of us, and New York is for him." ... It transpired in the course of the conversation that Maj. McKinley was bul slightly acquainted with Mr. Hobart, having met him only once, some years ago. Gen. McCook, who was the only one of the six admitted delegates to- vote for Gov. Morton, said the .conditions were such thnt New York could not well have had the second place on theticket. "If Gbv. Morton had been nnmed there would have been injected into the campaign two issues, of which the rest of the country knows nothing- practically —the Uaioes law and GrcntcrNew York —and the effect ofwhich.no one could foresee. The issues before the nation ore definite enough to satisfy all demands in that direction." ftforton'H SuccfiKKor »H Governor. "Who will be nominated for governor?" was asked, "I 'don't know. 7.1iere will be a sharp contest for that In the convention. I see Warner Miller was named for the position by Mr. Milholland In introducing him here ITriday night But it is not settled." . . . Col.' Cruger said. : the result at St. Louis, in his opinion, would '.tend to heal the factional differences in New York--and to add aggressiveness .to the state campaign, "ll'o shall give Maj, McKiuley the biggest majority a presidential candidate ever received."

Wheat and cotton are In better demand; there is more commence In monetary circles, and the tendency toward shrinkage In great Industries seems^ln some measure at least to be chocked.'- rWhile tlie outcome of the democratic convention is uncertain and the great crops are not yet wholly beyond dan- por, a sure and strong improvement could hdi-dl" be expected, but the tone In business circles hus icrovn distinctly ciore hopeful. •'Clearing house "xdiangcs for the past week aro 3.-1 uur'cont. li-sa than last year's, and only 5.2 per cent. less tlmn in ]SS3.

New York, June20.—Tbe spec;al corn- mi ttee of the senate, appointed ;o investigate recent bond issues, resumed their inquiry in the Hoffman house. Thu first witness was J. Pierpont Morgan. Mr. Jlorg-an sug-g-csted that it would be better if he were allowed to tell just what his connection had been with the bond issue, and the committee might ask him questions later. This plan was adopted, but he declined to tell what profit his firm had made out of tha bond issue, or at what price the bond* were sold by himself and his associates to others, on the ground'that these matters were exclusively his private business. He said th;it no member of the government or any oflicial jad any interest in any way in tboso bonds. Mr. Morgan said that he did not believe anyone else could have got the jrold and that the government could lot have made better terms with anyone else, lie told the committee that had had no conference with President Cleveland with reference to the lu.st loan, and that he had prepared to loan tlie government $200,000,000' in gold if requested to do so. Senators Jones and Vest questioned Mr. Morgan at some length with refer- once to the g-old bars in the subtreas- uj-y. They wanted to know why the government eould not sell them for coin either here Or in Europe. Mr. Morgan explained to the questioners that tbe government could not do as they suggested,- and said that it was a fact Hint the Hank of England at that tizne- h?ld move United States gold coin than the Unik'i] St;iX's treasury did, and he pointed out that at the time of tho loan if he had presented 510,000,000 in. United States notes at the treasury for payment the government eould 'jot have redeemed them. John A. Stewart, president of the L'nited States Trust company, was th« icx't witness, and he testified on tho same lines as Mr. Morgan, and refused to state wh.-u profit resulted to his company through the sale of the bonds.

He ia confident the silver contestants will bo seated, and this will give the silver men the control of the delegation, and it will be voted as a unit for silver. * Mr. Baker says that if the democratic national committee endeavors to foil the wishes of tbe party there will be tho biggest bolt that ever happened in any party in. this country, and that thero will be two conventions. He intimated that the M.iahigrm silver delegates H-oiild be solidly for Teller and would work hard for his nomination.
