Gas o. Boston, Sept. 26.—One of the most remarkable political incidents in the history of Massachusetts was enacted in Music hull Friday night and Saturday morning. Acting under the direct advice of Hon. G eorge Fred Williams,the free silver lender of the state, his friends seized the hnll and took possession of it after the adjournment of the rally at which Candidate Brynn had spoken. Their purpose, as openly announced, was to fenihin in possession of the hall until I the democratic .state convention as- I eemblcd Saturday forenoon, the determination being the result of the charge made by Mr. Williams that the state committee leaders intended to pack the hall in the intereshot the men opposed to thf Chicago platform and candidates. Ag-eut Mudgett stationed two police at the entrance and let persons puss out of the hull, but would allow none to go In. He also turned ort all the lights and left the big auditorium, in utter dark•ness. An effort to get sandwiches and coffee in to the hungry men inside proved unsuccessful, until at hist at four, o'clock a small supply was smuggled in. This revived-somewhat the drooping spirits of the people in the hnll, mid nt seven o'clock in the morn- Ing there wore'still about 300 delegates In the hall. .'. ! -">'^l James Hughes, 1 'a delegate who had gone out of the'hall, was fount! dead in ah Hlleyway.'adj'oining the hall nt throe o'clock Satiirdny 'morning.

At 11 o'clock Mr. Pratt called the convention to order "and those in the hall gave vent to thcjr feelings in the wildest dcmonstrtitto'tis of joy. While the police' \vere considering the matter of operiiii'ff the doors of Music hall, a meeting WHS held in t he open a ir ntHarnilto'n place!' Those in attendance voted unanimously that George Fred Williams remain in thVir midst. • . It was announced, amid cheering, that Williams had received.the Music hnll nomination for p'overnor r.nd this action was 'indorsed. "Regain™" Alrot In Fnncnll Hall. Boston, Sept.

TO ILLINOISANS. McKinley Addresses a Big Delegation from Peoria. Says the People Are Studying th« Issues and Cannot Be Deceived— Other Delegations Call. Canton, 0., Sept. 20,—Maj. McKinley'i most active day of the campaign com- menccd with the call of the Peoria. Be- publicnn Traveling Men's club. The. Peoriu men, 200 in number, left home nt two o'clock Friday afternoon and reached here at 9:20 Saturday morning. This delegation traveled further than any that has visited Maj. McKinley, save the one which came from Vermont. The Peoria men were all tall and tine looking. They wore high black silk hats and long- linen dusters and carried pampas grass plumes of red, white nnd blue. They were loudly applauded as they marched from the station. At the house while the president of the club, T. II. Pfeiffer, nnd the spokesman, J. V. Graff, who represents the Fourteenth Illinois district in congress, were tallying 1 hi the study with Maj. McKinley, L. H. Wiley, of Peoria, entertained the crowd with a series of artistically executed bugle calls. Maj. MoKinley was enthusiastically cheered when he nppeaivd on the porch. In response to (.lie remarks of Mr. Gran: Maj. McKinley said: "I am more than plad to fireet at my home the Traveling Men's club of the city of Peoria. I cannot refrain from congratulating you at ihis time v.non th* splendid victory which, you achieved two. years nffo in electing your present congressman and turning a strong democratic ma.1orl.ty. inlo n republican majority for your candidate for congress And I am jrlad to hear from all voices nuout me that It is your purpose to do it again. I congratulate you upon the thriving city and plorious state in which you live. Illinois is by the census the third state Jn the American union. It has taken tile place of Ohio, and I have always believed that you took your census while Ohio was visiting your ,great world's exposition. .1 congratulate you most heartily upon the rank which you-have taken in population, and also the rank you have .taken in stuttsmanship. It comes to few states to hava furnished to this Klorious union the matchless men you have furnished—Yutcs and Ojrtesby. and that splendid soldier, statesman and patriot, John'A. Logan, a.ncl that great, dem' ocrat, Steven A. Dous'lns, who loved his country more than he loved his party and supported Mr. Lincoln In that crucial . period in the history of the republic. And no man can think of your preat state without re'calllnc that.you furnished Abraham r.lncoln, the- mightiest statesman of the country. And Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, the greatest warrior of the republic, When Abraham 'Lincoln issued' his immortal proclamation of liberty, the whole world knew, that whatJ/"COln had decreed,Grant would execute'wiih 'the' thunder'oi his artillery. I anrplnd to know that your prospects arc- so (food for a splendid victory in Illinois this year.' ' .' "What a spectacle, my fellow- citizens, to the world Is this.government of 70.000,000 of free peopli;, governed by themselves and governing themselves, changing their chief executive every four years and their law making power every two years, if If be their will so to do; and the government going on "without halt or Interruption, working out what 70,000,000 of people from time to time'believe will subserve their highest destiny. More than 320 years have passed since the government was founded.- and in every trial of our history we have demonstrated our capacity for self-government and shown to all man-kind the blessings and advantages of the great republic. - . . "The people are never led astray by deceit or -misrepresentation when they Investigate for themselves. Tills they are doing this year in a marked degree. It Is' of no avail that party leaders appeal to passion when the.people arc .alive.to tlielr own and the public Interests. It will not do to "say to the men who arc poor In this world's goods—you must get of' by yourselves, form a class of your own, your Interests, are opposed to those who employ you. That Is not enough this year. The' poor man inquiries: What good will that Jo me? How will that better my condition? How will that bring bread to my family and cheer to my children? Will I. be benofltdd. by despoiling my employer? Will it give me more employment and better wages 'to strlkii down those whose money is invested in productive enterprises, which, give me work and was«a?_ Four years ago, it was said that the manufacturer was roaklnK too much money. You remember it. But that cannot bo said now. And that the robber tariff which was enriching him must, be torn up, root and branch, to tho end that he should be deprived of what some people were pleased to call his '111-6011611 profits,' The country seemed to share in the sug- 1 gestlon, ,and the'trial was entered upon with what result every .manufacturer, commercial man, traveling man, or workingman best knows. It lias been discovered to our hurt and'sorrow that you cannot injure the manufacturer without injuring the laborer: It lias been found, too, that you cannot Injure the manufacturer 'without Injuring the whole-business of the country. : You.may close the shops by adverse tariffs, because you imagine the manufacturer is : maklng'too' 1 much, but •with that done you close the.door of employment in the face of the laborer, whose only capital Is his labor. You : cannot punish the one without punishing the other, and'our policy would not inflict the slightest injury upon either." Shortly after .the.departure of the Peoria traveling meu from Maj, Mcliin- ley's the first of the five special trains bearing the employes of Jones & Laughlin from Pittsburgh arrived. It was posed of merchants ana cjerns Irom Pittsburg-h; one composed of the em- pl<^es of the Pittsburgh & Lake Eri« railway;one from Cleveland; the Buffalo Eeal Estate Exchang-e McKinley and Hobart club arrived at two o'clock.
