McKinley Makes a Speech in Which He Declares We Ought to Profit by Past Experiences. Canton, 0., Oct. C.—A delegation of enthusiastic republicans from East Brady, in the democratic county • oi! Clarion, Pa.., came in the riiin to call on MH-J. McKinley Tuesday morning. The spokesman, N. E. Graham, said that there were 31 1'nrnaces in the county under the McKinley law and not one of them in blast at present. Some ot the men in the delegation bore banners inscribed: "Plutocrats from Clarion county." The delegation was made up of miners, farmers and workingmen. Mnj. McKinley addressed it in part as follows: Eiicoura|fein*int from PrtSt Kocord. "There is one thing which I think we nra sometimes too apt to forpret—we fire too apt to forpet what is behind us and too apt to be heedless o£ our own experience. We can hardly realize that fvom. 1S73 to 1S93 we reduced the public <3fbt from .W,3S3,331,30S In 1SCS to J570,000,000. Wo paid, off during those 20 years $1,G23,G81.C73 o£ the public dobt. And we were undo? a pro-, ttctiva and sound money' system when we .were making-the largo payments. .Two-.thirds of that great debt has disappeared,. and while we wore paylnp It oft we were building In this country the most splendid Industrial enterprises, giving constant nnd. steady employment to American labor at fair wages, and giving to the farmer? of the country 'a Just reward for their toll and labor. During that period, for the greater part of the time, we wore gelling' more goods abroad than we were buying, abroad. And the balance of trade was therefore In our favor, and that balance of trade, settled as it was in sold, gave us the good yellow money £rom the other side of the ocean. Now, my fellow-citizen;;, four years affo tho people of this country determined to'change that policy, and they did change It. What has boon the result? We have since that time created 'a national debt, principal and Interest of about {300,000,000. We have had for the greater part of that time a deficiency In the treasury, Uic, government not collecting sufficient revenues to meet Its current expenses; and labor has beun 111 employed us It was In that period. Your spokesman tells us that in your own county 31 blast furnaces have been stopped. What does that mean? It means that wages have been stopped. It means that labor' has been unemployed. It means that comforts have been taken away from hundreds of American homes which they had previously enjoyed. It moans distress, and what Is true of your county has been substantially true—possibly not to so large a degree—o£ other counties ef your state and throughout the entire country: Now, what we -want to do, -wbether.-wo-are rall- 'road men, or farmers, or professional men. or mechanics, or laboring men, Is t,o got badk to a policy that will Rlvc us a chance to increase our manufacturing improve our home market, extend our 1'oreign market and give employment every day in the year to every working-man who wants work. If we" will but follow the lamp'oi experience and follow In the .direction which the light of that lamp loads us. on the 3d of November we will vote down tins policies-which have brought us these con- ditions'and vote to continue a monetary system built upon a solid basis, 'which will give us the best money In the world, a money which panics cannot disturb and business failures cannot depreciate."

The procession was. headed by a body .of Arab chiefs and a double line of soldiers, zouaves iind Trjnquniese trciops. Member's of every French regiment were included in the troops that lined the route and hedged the crowds in. When the czar steppedjnto (Jie_ carnage there" wore" mJfly- cries of "Vive" I'Em- there" wore pereur," but the cries were not «JL n !l!~. rnous and then- repetition was not invited, As a whole the assemblage .at the start was stiff in its manner and did not indulge in any great degree of exuberance or enthusiasm, hut as the procession advanced the ebullitions of cnl-husiiism became more pronounced. This .feeling rapidly increased as the cortege passed through the Bois tie Boulogne and at the Avenue DJ Bois de Boulogne the vast crowd became ecstatic. From this stage of the czar's advance until the Russian embassy was., reached there was one continuous roar of cheers. rreniih Proas "Welcomes tho Koyal Visitors, Pixris, Oct. 6.— The French press is unanimous in enthusiastically welcoming the czar and czarina, to France. The socialist papers declare that the visit of the e-/,ar has no political significance, but the other journals dwell upon its international importance, several papers adding that the patriotic joy which Frenchmen rightly exhibit does not make them forget the lost provinces. • Le Petit Parisian published a special dispatch from Cherbourg which says the czar in his speech at the banquet there Monday was somewhat carried away in his assurances of Russia's friendship for France. . The official version of the speech thS dispatch says was modified before it was handed to the press. i The French press has subscribed to a gift to the czar.
