WERE PIONEEM First McKinley Club in-Indiana Pays a Visit to Canton. Maj. McKinley Gives Them a Talk on Government Receipts and Expenditures. Canton, 0., Oct. 7.—The first McKinley club organized in Indiana arrived in Canton at eight o'clock Wednesday morning, having been on the cars since Tuesday noon. An hour after'reaching Canton the members of the club caJied on Maj, McKinley. A. B. Jenkins, of Goodlnnd, the town from which the Indiana visitors came, made a short address, introducing the club to Maj. McKinley. The morning- was raw and p. sharp wind from the northeast blowing And whirling 1 the leaves across the McKinley lawn, but the Indianians cheered in a manner which indicated that temperature in no wise affected their enthusiasm. After Maj. McKin- Jey's speech a giee club sang a number of humorous campaign song-s. Maj. McKinley spoke in part as follows: Soarc«M of Revenue.' "ThPre is a pood deal of misunderstanding as-to how n provernment gets its monoy and as to how It pnya it out. There are Rome people who seem to believe that the way the government gets Its money, is to malce It. The government gets'Its money l>y taxation, and can get it In no other way. There ire three or four sources from ••rfhlch the government of the United States gets money. The chlof sources are through tariffs and Internal taxation. Then, the government Bets money from the. sale of its public land« and'postal service, and from these several sources there comes the money that Is annually required to meet and dlseharce public expenses. It takes abo.ut 1-130,000,000 a year to conduct this government. One million and one- third dollars every day are required to keep Its wheels Ir. operation. "Now, if the government had power to make money, as some people believe, or had the power to double the value of.a thing by its stamp .or not, It would not need to resort'to taxation. It would simply .set-Its mints to work and make the necessary money to pay-Its running expenses. It could have paid oft the national debt lonpr years ago In this way. There Is another thing. I : would have you all know; that the government can't pet gold or silver except through the customhouse or the Internal revenue ofllce, or from the sale of public lands, without R|V- Ing something for it, just as you and I have to give something for It, If we want gold or silver or paper money. Now, how does the government distribute this money? Somebody -asked me that question the other day. How does the government distribute the, money? • The government distributes Its receipts. Its annual receipts, by an appropriation of congress, to its creditors. That Is the way the money of tlie government Is distributed. It Is distributed in payment of the army, the navy, public improvements, rivers nnd harbors, the great postal service of the conn- try, for the expenses of congress, the Judiciary, the Interest on the public debt and the principal of the government bonds, and the pensions of soldiers, and to the other creditors, and there Is no other way for the government to distribute any money It has except to the people It owes. There la no such thing as a general distribution of money by the government of the United States. Can't Create Money. i "The point I want to make in the little talk I give you this morning Is that the government doesn't create money, can't create money, and whatever money It needs It'H sot to collect from taxes on Its people, either by a system of direct taxation, or by a system of Indirect taxation, known as the tariff. And If the government wants to have any gold or silver minted for its own use, It's got to pay for that gold and that silver, just us you and I have to pay for It If we want It for our purposes. The Idea that the government can create wealth Is a mere myth. There is nothing that can create wealth but labor, that Is the foundation of nil, labor. IVnnt Good Dollari). "I don't care what employment we may have, whether we arc working in the shops or working on the farm, or in the professions, we want every dollar we have In circulation as good as our flag. And as unquestioned as the currency of any country in the world. And thai Is the purpose ot- the republican party to-day, and we Intend to support this government by taxes upon foreign Imports and the Internal revenue we have rtow got, and we Intend to have enough revenue, if the people give us the power. \Ve Intend to have enough revenue In the public treasury to pay bur bills. The government is Just like an Individual when he has not got enough Income to pay his expenses, he has got to give his note and raise some money to do it or quit business; and when the government ol the United States has.not got money to pay its current expenses, the only way to get it is to do Just what the citizen does, go out and borrow It, and that Is what wo have been doing for the last 3V4 years, and that is what we propose to stop.". About half-past twelve o clock two more delegations arrived. One was from Ashland county, 0., and numbered 'over 400, while the other came from Geauga. county. There were fully 2,000 persons in the latter crowd. Maj. McKinley addressed both delegations at the tabernacle. FIro at Peorla.

It is understood that all of those operators who have not performed criminal acts will be reinstated. The other terms agreed upon are in the na.trire of a compromise. The trouble was settled by a committee of the Brotherhoods of the Engineers, Firemen, Conductors and Switchmen, acting as a conciliatory medium between the Canadian Pacific railroad and the strikers. Neither the strikers nor the railway company are inclined to give 1o the public the terms of the settlement of the .strike, and both sides assert that secrecy in this respect is one of the considerations mutually imposed in the settlement of the trouble. It is learned, however, that the men will have to apply to their respective superintendents for redress for their grievances. The grievances will be finaiiy passed Upon by tlie higher officials. It is asserted also that the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Firemen, Conductors and Brakemen and Switchmen will see that the telegraphers receive fair treatment in the proposed adjustment and that the grievances which .the company have virtually conceded as existing are remedied. , A committee will pass upon all charges of violence brought against the strikers.

The sessions were strictly executive and DO newspaper representatives were allowed in the room.

Galesburg, III., Enjoys a Big Demonstration—Commemorative Tib- lei Unveiled. Galesburg:, HI., Oct. 7.—The thirty- eighth anniversary of the famous debate between those two famous men, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas, was celebrated here Wednesday in the presence of a crowd estimated at 25,000. The debate was held beneath the classic walls of Knox college, and it was here that the celebration o£ this day was held. It was one of the grandest demonstrations ever held in the west for the reason that so many men of prominence in the history of the country were here to take part. It was also grand for the reason that Robert Lincoln, son of the dead president, was here to take part in the exercises commemorative of the greatest events in the life of his illustrious father. It was great from another standpoint for the reason that Hon. Chauncey M. Depew was present and delivered the address. The debate was one which an entire nation stopped and listened to. These statesmen were chosen candidates of the two great political paries of the state for the position of United States senator about to 'become vacant and each was the foremost champion of the principles which his party advocated. As the contest continued, it became evident that tbe,re was something more than a senator-ship;.at stake and.that it bad really be'comej.u contest for the presidency of the,-;,United States. Exorcise* of the Day. , . The event of the day took place shortly after one o'clock. A reception committee composed of the sophomore class of Knox college and a number of prominent citizens escorted Dr. Depew, Mr. Lincoln and Senator Palmer to a large platform capnblc of seating the 500 invited guests which had been erected in front of the college. After music by the Knox College Cadet band an address of welcome wns delivered by Col. Clarke E. Carr. This wns followed by on address by C. 15. Xosh, president of Lombard university. The anniversary oration was then delivered by Chauncey 31. Depew. Robort Uucolu'ft AddregR. Hon. Robert T. Lincoln delivered a brief address. "It Is not to recall victories or to revive bitter memories Hint tills monument is raised, but to do Just-honor to the brave dead, and to encourage patriotism In the living. There Is no virtue whose exhibition In time of public need Is so honored by tvery human beinp, in all agrcs and in nil Innds as patriotism. It is to pay such honor that we are here to-day. Let us remind ourselveo, and tell our youth v/hat we can. in the fewest words, of the story that cannot be told too often, of what It was'that roused the brave hearts ot these dead heroes. The question debated here In 3SSS wus one as to which It now seems almost Incredible that there could be opposing parties, and yet that question caused the longest and most bitter war of modern time?." The speaker then briefly referred to the years of the WHT, and closed as follows: "And now let us dedicate this monument to the memory of. these patriots at Galesburg and to patriotism. It is a monument of pride, put up by the victors In the flush of their conquest. Since the close ot the grreat utriiprjrlo which it commemorates, victors and vanquished have by thousands and tens of thousands fallen into the sleep of death under the peaceful shelter ot their homes. .With few exceptions, the names of those who were In lilph places at state on either side, or who led armies, or corps or divisions In battle, or commanded squadrons en the sea, arc in the great catalogue of the dead. To those who survive the memories brought up by an occasion like this have lonsr ceased to recall the exultation of victory on one side, or t'ho KTie£ of defeat on Hie other. The reflections of .more than 30 year? have turned the once bitterly warring streams of sentiment Into one broad river, on whose current Is borne in safety and In glory the ship of state, and no one lives under the protection of its Has who does not at heart rejoice that the rock of disunion was exploded from its path and the canker of human slavery torn from its framework." The unveiling .of the tablet by Presi' dent Finley's three-year-old daughter then followed. The tablet is of bron2e, with raised Betters, and is about 18 inches by- two feet in size. The inscription on the tablet commemorative of the debate is as follows: "This memorial tablet Is placed herp to recall the joint debate between Abraham Lincoln and'Stephen A. Douglas, whoso words these walls echoed October the 7th, "Equality nmong the different states 13 a cardinal principle upon which all our'in- stltutions rest."—Douglas, "He la blowing out the moral light* around us who contends that whoever wants slaved lias a right to hold them."— Lincoln. The unveiling address was-then delivered by Senator Palmer. After the exercises a reception was held at the college until six o'clock. Ex-Gov. Horace M. Boies, of Iowa, was expected to be present ut the exercises, but he could not attend. gchaefor Challenge* the World. .Boston, Oct. 7.—A. W.
