Canton, 0., Sept. 25.—A delegation from Marion, Ind., arrived in Canton shortly .after seven' o'clock Friday morning- nnd started for Maj. Mclvm- ley's house before he had finished his sleep. A delegation marching with bands through the streets at this curly hour was something; of a novelty even in Canton. The llaripn people numbered £00. Many of them were formei residents of Canton, having gone to Indiana after the discovery of natural (JOS. The. spokesman, Dr, W. E.

You believe In that ca'use, beclwuse you have tried It, and having'tried It .iou know you have been more prosperousTn your occupations under the policy wlilcH it represents than you have ever been under any other policy,'-and If anything was needed, to confirm you In your devotion to that policy" It could be found In your-experience of the last four years. "Vou havo In your city of Marlon/ as I recall, an Industry which manufactures glass, that.used to be in .the city of Canton. Am I rlRht about that? It is a good Industry. Well, now, that fairly Illustrates my Idea. That used' to be, as I said, a Canton Industry. We would much have preferred to havo had It remain -here, but it was taken away. However,, it 'lid not po. out of our own-country. It went Into a neighboring .state .and, therefore, benefits the American family, American workmen ntlll do the work. We share In your good fortune and prosperity, but we would have felt differently l£ it had sone on.the other side and out of the United States. In a word, wo want to do our manufacturing at home, and If wo cannot do it In Ohio, we are willing to have you do It In Indiana. "And -If wo cannot do It In Canton I do not know of any city in Indiana in which I would rather have It d.one than In the city of Marion."
