He spoke to fully H.OUO 'people' at Fairbury. At Beatrice there was an audience of not lees .than 5,000, which Was addressed from the, station, the governor leaving the car. Short stops were also le at Wilbur and Crete. The meet- at Lincoln was, it ii said, the biggest of any kind ever held in the city and estimates of the enormous audience to which Governor McKinley spoke from a platform erected in front of the Lincoln hotel ranged as high as 15,000. The whole country seemed to turned out A number of delegations came from Omaha, Nebraska City, Syracuse, Hick-man and and other places. A company of state troops formed a guard of honor to the governor, who was met several stations below Lincoln by Colonel O; E. Adams, of Governor Crounse's staff, as the representative of Nebraska's chief executive. There was a long' parade, into which Governor McKinley was incorporated, composed of clubs, college students, industrial ex- GOVERNOR M'KINLEY. fatbits, etc., and it was more than an hour after the arrival of the special train when the governor began his address. Governor Cronneo occupied a •eat on the stage beside ex-Governors Thayer, Dawes and Nance, and there other prominent Republicans, ice holders and candidates. Governor fCrounse presided, introducing Governor jMcKinley to tho audience. A great out- ^tourst of cheers greeted MoKinley when he stepped to the railing, and there were repeated cheers for "Our next president." Ho began by saying: "I have boon in Missouri and Kansas for the last hit hours. I havo Kpout part of the morn. ing in the great otate of Nebraska. Ihave met thousands, yea tens of thousands, of people, and they act precisely as the peo- ple'did In Ohio lost year, when they gave the Republican ticket a majority of 80,000. [pheorH.] The people are eugor to vote this year; they are eager to vote for their. houjea and their factories, their farms and their wages. They ore eager to vote their opinion of the new tariff law, a law which even President Cleveland could not approve, a law which he declared was an act of party'perfidy and party dishonor, saying that if it passed the Democratic party could not look tho people of this country in the face, and which after its passage he declares to bo the very 'communism of pelf.' " The governor was taken to u club of business wen after the speech and inot the members; taking a train for Omaha at about 6:«0. He was eeoortod hero by a reception committee and on arrival was hurried to the Coliseum, where a crowd of 12,000 persons awaited him. The place was so crowded when Governor McKinley arrived that it was with difficulty that way was made for him, and late comers were unable to got inside, Fourteen carloads of men oauio in from Lincoln for the purpose of hearing the address, but they, with thousands of others, were turned away from the doors •imply because they could uot get inside, Tbe audience was highly demonstrative aud was declared to be the largest political gathering ever held In Omaha.

For the past 19 months the Democratic party hat had absolute control ot all branch o'f the government. That party has devoted the greater part of these 19 months to the Work of revising the tarn% and they have been the longest 10 months ever experienced by the American people since the war. They have been months of sober reflection, steadied*? the discipline pf sober experience. We have got this year everything we had in 1893 except prosperity.. (Applause, long continued.) That we bartered away, moved by pique, passion and prejudice, for a Democratic administration. It must have been apparent even to the recent Democratic congress while It we* engaged in revising the tariff that the people were thinking deeply; and that those who were not thinking were feeling—feeling the stress of the times wrought by the great change thathas come In the lust two years. The people of the United States were never more ready to vote than they are today. The eyes of the blindest partisans are opened. Men-who have never been able to see anything- that was good' in the Republican party, men that have sincerely believed that, the flaoal legislation of the Republican' party has been the very acme of class enactments, are ready tor a change. That change commenced even in 1893. We commenced in- Massachusetts, where a Democratic majority of 6,000 Was turned into 'a Republican majority, of 85,000. (Applause.); We commenced in the state of Iowa, where Governor Jackson was elected by 'a majpVHf of 10,000. (Applause- and a voice, "DonY forget Ohio, Mao," followed by great and renewed cheering.) No, we will not for-; get Ohio, which in 1892 had given a Republican plurality of but 1,000, but the fear following elected a Republican governor by 80,000 plurality. In New York In January,: 1894, Qntgg was elected to congress by-1,000 plurality in a district which had two. years before gone Democratic by 4,000. Sweeping along to Pennsylvania, Galnsha A. Grow, the father of the .homestead law,, was elected by a majority of 180,000, a gain ot over 100,000 votes over 1893. Across the continent on the Pacific coast, Oregon gave an unparelled Republican victory. Vermont followed with an unfirecedented victory, and last of all Maine, the home 9f James G. Blatne, piled up the greatest Republican majority in its history and returned Tom Reed to congress, And now pou have au opportunity here in Nebraska. What will you do? (A voice: We'll elect Tom Majors and John Thnrston.) The Wilson Tariff. Every industry in the United States was seriously disturbed by the change in the administration of the affairs of this government. The value of every piece of property has suffered a decline. Every wage earner has been affected. This, waste of wealth and wages- and Invest meut has cost the United States more money than was expended to save the country and protect Its flag. It has injured everything except the Republican party. (Applause and cheers). The Democratic congress has at last succeeded in revising the tariff. They have passed a law that nobody under the flag approves of—that • is, nobody under our flag. It is a tariff bill m^de iu secret and out of the presence of tho American people—made after refusing farmers, wool growers aud wuge earners an opportunity for a hearing. • It is a tariff bill denounced by Congressman Wilson, whose name it bears, OB the fruit of W. R. Kelly, J. B. Strode, John P. Maul, the gigantic trusts that liold the Democratic senate by the throat. It was denounced by the president himself, who said tuet If It became a law the Democratic party could not look the people of the country in tho face. It was a tariff bill denounced by Senator Hill as M direct violation of the D?iiuK!i->tUo pledges to the'peoplo, and .Senator Hill has been ijiven his reward for his critieimn of the bill in tliu Blmpi! of a nomination for the governorship of Now York. 1 don't know whut other puoplu think, but I think that there should be a joint debate between Hill and somebody hern In No- brueka. (Great uuuering and cries of TUuruton, Thurstou.) At thl* juncture the speaker was Intor- ruptod by Tom Majom, I?«]inl)llpiin nominee for governor, who walke.l upon Uic platform and shook liumlH with M»jor MoKiuley. There were chueru for Ma join, which ho acknowledged by n slight bow to the audience. Continuing, Major McKinley gaid: That tariff bill was framed by threa men, Sou- atoru Joues of Arkansas, Vust of Missouri ami lliirria of Touuussee. Thuy framed it by barter, trade and collection. Thev did not ask what the American poopls wanted, but considered whut the auuators wanted themselves. It U a law which violates party pledges and which is repugnant to moral law. A bill so framed iu Iniquity and conceived Iu deceit cannot stand before the American people. Out they tell us that the law ot 1894 U better than the law of 1880. Better for who?

Governor McKinley rapidly sketched the effects ot the recent Democratic tariff legislation, referring especially to the tin plate Industry. He said that under the workings of the Republican tariff law Of 1800 the tin plate manufacturers were enabled to supply one-third' of all the tin plate used in the United States. Under the recent Democratic enactment every tin plate factory tn the United States hnd been compelled to close down, thus throwing 10,000 men out of employment and giving the increased trade back to the Welsh manufacturers, from whom it was taken. Major McKinley closed with a brief dls- eugeion of the pension question, relating a'graphic incident from Andersonville prison life to prove 'the devotion of the Union soldier, even when offered freedom from a loathsome prison in exchange for treachery to the flag of the Stars and Stripes. . Major McKinley spoke but a few minutes more than an hour. When he concluded there were loud calls for Thnrs- ,ton, but that gentleman merely arose and dismissed the audience. It required a full hour to empty the anditorinra, so great was the crash of people. Everybody passed out without accident or incident. . After the speech Governor McKinley was driven back to the Mlllard hotel. Here an informal lunch was served, and over cigars the guests engaged In general conversation. Thpse ' present' were: Governor McKinley, Private' Secretary Smith,'the reception committee,' state candidates, Major Thomas Mandersoh of Kansas and' the 'newspaper correspondents with the governor's party. POPULIST GAINS IN GEORGIA. •pcakcr Orbp'i District GlyM MM KargMt Democratic Majority. ATLANTA, Oct. 5.—Official returns from 187 counties in Georgia show a Democratic majority of about 80jOOO. The Popnliata claim the country- counties which will be the last to be heard from and returns from them will probably reduce the Democratic majority to 10,000. Of the 175 members of the house elected about 60 are Populists and of the 44 members of the senate, there are seven Populists and one Republican. Several of the strongest Democratic counties have been carried by the Populists and with .but few exceptions every county in the state shows Populist gains. Speaker Crisp's district gives the largest Democratic majority of any district'in the state. He figured conspicuously in the campaign, strongly advocating tariff re- brm and the free coinage of silver. An organized movement against a re- urn to silver coinage without foreign consent was started early in the cara- laign, Secretary Smith, Congressman Durner and others vigorously defending ;he policy of the administration oh the stump. The debate on the silver quea- ion grew so warm as to frequently put Democratic speakers in the attitude of making a joint discussion against each >ther on this issue. Speaker Crisp and Jecratary Smith spoks in Atlanta together a few weeks ago, one defending 'ree silver and tho other antagonizing it. Phe Populists took full advantage of the division and there has been a great •lump in Democratic majorities throughout the state.

OHIO SILVER ADDRESS, Manifesto Issued Prtm Democratic State Headquarters. MONET QUESTION NOW SUPREME, Declares Tariff Queitlon Has Been Prao- tlotllr Settled \>f VatsAge of Wilson Bill. Bevletn Game* Assigned by Business Men for Continual Decline In Prtoes, Popallst Gains In Georgia. , O., Oct. iWThe following manifesto has. been issued from Democratic state headquarters: Two yeara ago the great national political battle was fought upon two principal issues—a reformation of the tariff laws upon an equitable basis and the adjustment of the money question by the restoration of silver to its rightful power and functions as one Of the money metal* .under the constitution, During this contest, however, the issue- of tariff reform made 'the paramount one. By the repeal of the McKinley law and the passage of the law now tin force, tariff reform Has Deen substantially won. The money .question, therefore, . is now the supreme issue before the country. The importance of the question,' whether silver shall be restored to ite full 'money power cannot be over estimated, because it affects every interest, great and: small, from the slightest concern . of the individual to the largest and molt oompre- lensive interest of the nation. This being so, and also for the reason. that so many misrepresentations , and misstate- tnenta have been made by the gold advo- ;ates in regard. to it, which are absolute- y false, We' invoke the serious and intelligent consideration of .the voters of all the parties teethe following: ,, ' First— That money is 'the standard by which the exchangeable value of all labor and the- product* of the; same: are determined. ' •••.••» Second— That 1 , notwithstanding the assertion Of the single gold standard advocates that gold is an unvarying measure, no standard has ever or can ever be Jxed as an unfailing measure. Third — Business' men must remember ;hat money may be appreciated. in value as well as depreciated. Fourth— That' when it appreciates Dricee fall; when it depreciates- prices rise. • . • < ' • • • • . ' Fifth— Thut the value of money itself s fixed by its exchangeable or purchasing power over other commodities, and bus the purchasing power of money is determined wholly and solely by the jroportion that the quantity of money in simulation bears to other commodities. in other words,' when the. supply of money in circulation is small relative to other commodities, its purchasing power s increased; when it is great its purchas- ng power is diminished. That is, the value or purchasing power of money is governed, by the supply of money and ;he demand for money. : The address proceeds by paragraphs, numbered up to 2'J, to support the foregoing propositions. The demand for money is incessant. The<supply is the creation of 'the government. In the [Jutted States and southwestern Europe Before demonizutiou of silver in 1873 the world's supply of gold and '• amounted to ^7,500,000,000, very nearly equally divided. Gold is tho money of redemption now, The supply has been 1 out in ;woj causing a fall in prices. Alter reviewing in' detail the causes assigned by business men. for the continual decline in prices, all . of which nre pronounced insufficient and contradio- ;ory, the address says . this decline is ({oing on and therefore we oau say that when a full of prices is found operating not on one article or • class of articles alone, but on the products of ill industries! when- found not to confiued to any climate, country or race of people, but to diffuse itself over all gold standard countries; when it is found not to be characteristic of any one year? but to go on .progressively for a series of years, it becomes manifest that it does not and cannot arias from local, temporary or Bubordiuato causes,, but must have its origin and development in some principle of universal application. Over production cannot account for it, fur production moans the creation of wealth. Neither can it be attributed to improved mechanical devices, progress iu manufactures, improved transportation, inventions,, banking,, etc., bocauso all of those Increased relatively as rapidly prior to 18BB, as they have done since, and there was no such fall iu prices as there .has been since, but on tho contrary there was a continual riso. Besides, it. U very strange that tlus fall begun setting tn at the exact movement whoa, the litok watt broken between gold and silver. Silver is the standard of valuo of inoro than half tho world, and wboru it in tho standard prices have remained utablo, while iu all gold standard countries prices have fallen from 40 to W) per ueutj. <What is it that has cmwod this gouwral decline (n pricus? It has boon brought, ..about , simply by tho shrinkage iu jjje yoluiUB of money relative to population and busluess. If the value of money in clrouluUoa be made (0 bear a direct »nd steady ratio to population an4> business, prices will be maintained. at a, steady level and whut u pf supreme importance, money , will eluwtfo little |u valuo.
