At eight o'clock 300 voters from Monroe county, Mich., murched up Market street to Mnj. Mclvlnley's house and ouised him to dispatch his breakfast with haste. Thuy were not-kept waiting more than ten minutes. .Their spokesman, D. A. Curtis, of Monroe, Mich., made a lively address to Maj. Mo- Kinley and assured him that his plurality in Michigan would exceed 20,000, Maj. McKinley thanked his Michigan visitors for their call and urged them to stand firmly for the party of protection and sound money. McKinley to Michigan Delegntlnn. In addressing the Monroe county (Mich.) delegation Maj. McKinley said: "I am glad to greet and welcome you this mornlnK. I have never believed, as some people have been saylnc, that there wns over any danger about the state of Michigan. Thcra has never been a moment of tlmo when I liavn had the slightest doubt about where the electoral vote of your clorlous state would BO In the presidential contest for 183G. No state In the union Is more deeply Interested in" the senulnc American policy that will protect your property, your Interests, your labor, your mines, the products ot your forests from undue competition from the other side, than the state of Michigan. And there la no state that Is more deeply interested In having a protective policy than the state. of Michigan. There Is one thing that the. republican party Is dedicated to und that la labor nrst, then to law and order; these are' Indispensable to the welfare of'mankind and Indispensable to the pro.scrlty ami the permanency of the republic, I am glad to, know from your spokesman that you believe not only In a protective tariff, but that you believe In honest money. -When you do your work, whether It he on the fnrm or In the factory or In the mini?, you want to receive In payment dollars' that are good every day and every week and every month and everywhere in every part, of the civilized world." . . ,,,. Maj. McKinley's next cullers came with drums beating and flags flying ut nine oclock. There were three delegations in the assemblage that, filled i the' McKinley yard.

Schwartz, of Altoona, introduced the Blair county delegation ; J. IT. Dietrick spoke for the South Fork visitors, nnd K. H. Hughes, himself a miner, was spokesman for his fellow workers from Portage. Maj, McKinley has seldom faced a more enthusiastic audience than .this one of Pennsylvania . workingmen, and , he spoke with uncommon earnestness. Two hundred citizens of Huntingdon county, Pa., were the next caUcl-s. Judge Willinmson introduced them to Maj. McKinley, who made a short address. , , . The fourth speech wns made at 10:30 to a fine delegation from Grfcnd Rapids nnd western Michigan. It was largely composed of railroad men and men engaged in the manufacture of furniture.

Oct. 17:— The Wage- Earners ..Patriotic, League of Maryland to the number of 200 called on Secretary Chrlisle Friday to invite him to address them in Baltimore at his convenience. The secretary received the delegation on the nouth ' steps of the trcasx:ry building,, where Mr. H. K. L. Johnson, the .leader of the delegation, made an address in which he said they were Cleveland and Carlisle democrats, who proposed to vote for McKinley as the representative of honest money. Post- .master! Wu'rfleld, of Baltimore, accompanied, the delegation. Secretary Car- •iisle mounted a chair and as he did so some one in the crowd yelled out: "Tell the .tP.nth,'* He promptly answered: "I .will try todoKo." .Then he said, after stating his regret nt his inability to speak in Baltimore': '.'If .there Is B laboring man In the United States who really believes that the money h{ Is how. receiving for his wapcs la too prood for him; that It IB buying too much food, ,- too 'rcueh clothlns for himself and his family, or that It Is paylns the rent for a better house than he and his family ought to live In, -It .la his duty to vote for the|froi and unlimited coinage of silver at the' ratio of sixteen to one. If there Is any laboring man In the United Suites' who 'has savod money out of his earnlnga and' deposited It In a savings bunk or bulld- Inff assoclatlo'n, or paid it on a policy of In- . surance for' the benctlt of his family, and who duslrea 'to have It paid 1 buck to him in a currency worth about hull'- as much as the money he paid out, he also ouffht 10 vote ,tbr the- free and unlimited coliiiige. of silver, for that will give him exactly what ho vaults.

But, gentlemen, the laboring men have their -lite In their own hands. They have the power to protect their wages against depreciation- and to protect their country against financial, disturbances and ruin, and If. they are as Intelligent' and patriotic as -I '..believe them to be they will »o exer- ,cl»e their power that no reckless agitator 'wlll.'n^ropftor dare to approach them In behalf of his wild and revolutionary scheme of finance and clvy government."

Had Been in Bad Health Since La«t • Summer — Sketch of Hi» Career. New York, Oct. 17.—Henry E. Abbey, the operatic and theatrical manager, .died suddenly Saturday morning at his home in the Osborne Flat house. Mr. Abbey had be«n in bad health since early in the summer. At that time he and his wife concluded to sep- p.rate, .nnd shortly after the operatic iirni of Abbey, Schoeffel & Grauss failed. Mr. Abbey's poor health took on a critical phoee early Wednesday morning when he was attacked with hemorrhage of the stomach. Every effort to check the progress of the ailment proved unavailing-. Shortly after two o'clock Siiturdn-y morning he be- (.•urue unconscious ulid Oied in it short time. Tlie 1'iineral will take place next Tuesday nnd interment will be at Northampton, Mass. Florence Gerald, Mr. Abbey's (second wife, is in Europe. |Henry E. Abbey was still a comparatively young- miin. He was born In Akron, O., In 18-16. H« learned the trade of Jewelry, and !-.:.s father, who was In the jewelry business), bequeathed him hla business. HavlnR musical tastes, Mr. Abbey became an able musician. In 1SC9 Mr, Abbey became the manager of the Summer opera house In his native city. His experience Ith the opera house turned out disastrously. He sul>sec\jently went to tho box ofllco of the Euclid Avrnue opera house, Cleveland, under tin veteran John Kllsler, and later became treasurer of Ellsler's opera house at Pittsburgh. He became very popular find had a number of opportunities to take nhargp of the tours of prominent professionals. Of these offers, he KH- Incipi) that made by Lotta.

Events in Various Portions of In»- dlana Told by Wire. Kmalt Premlum'Commanded l>y Gold—Increate of Merchandise Export*. New York, Oct. 17.—Ji. G. Dun & Co.. in thfeir weekly nView of .trade,-say: "Gold commands a nmall premium. Th* most powerful rorce In business at prei- ent Is conservative timidity, and the foreign bankers who have been ottering for a small percentage to Insure people aealnft a premium on gold until December have made, an easy and sure profit out ot prevalent apprehensions. From Kama.. Ne- brqpka and other states where the silver agitation la said to be strong come orders by many, banker* and business men to get thcnr gold at a small premium, and there has also been some demand for hoard- Ing from Individuals In other states who are afraid even of their'own best judgment. "One commercial change, which more than any other Insures • better business In the near future; Is tne excess of merchandise exports over Import*. In two n-eehifof October the exports from New- York'nave Increased 3U.G per cent, against 31.2 In September, while Imports have Increased 2< per cent.i against 85.2 In September. Continued shipments of gold from Europe, not Including J4,000,000 from Australia, now amount to JD'J.ISO.UOO since the movement began, of which 112,200,000 has already arrived, and have not been urrest- ed by measures' taken by the great European banks. "Tho heavy movement of-grain Is tho corner stone.- After an Increase of J5.923.675 In'exports of breadstuffs In' September thcrt have been shipped the last week from Atlanuu ports alone 2,134,774 bushels, flour included, and 4,203,845 In two weeks'of October, against S.610.271 bushels lust year. A more Important fact Is that all available grain freights have teen engaged for months ahead hero and on the Paclflc coaat The minister of agriculture In India stated In council on Thursday that distress was expected In a largo part of India as the result of droughts. .A high ofllclal of Russia now In this country confirms accounts of shortness In the Russian yield.' Thus estimates that Europe will fall 100,-' 000.000 bushels uhort of last year in supply of wheat are strongly supported, and while department estimates of yield In this country are not credited, there Is every reason to expect a remarkable foreign demand. Wheat has advanced 4W cents for th« week. "Boot and shoe makers get a very narrow margin at old prices, or at an advance of less than 1 per cent. Difficulties threaten the Iron manufacture, for pig Is higher, Bessemer at Jll.BO and gray lorge at J9.76 at Pittsburgh, while plates, angles and beams are weaker, and various combinations hold prices-only by leaving outside competitors to take the market as far as they can. Steel bars are largely sold at 1 cent, while 1.2 Is demanded for Iron; all the nails that outsiders can produce are sold at less than the association asks; billets are still sold for less than the pool price and Its shipments in September aggregated only S6.000 tons, mainly on sheet and tin plate bars, and the demand for rails Is growing small. ' "Failures for the week have,been SMJn the United States, against 252 last year, and 40 in Canada, aealunt 48 last year. Dividend for Hunk Creditor*.

All of. the real estate of the bank has been sold, but the receiver has enough good-notes to pay the remaining 10 per cent. Kcoeiver Krisher has one peculiar cat* to deal with in the person of John Hale, of Hose Bill, who had $6,000 in the- bank when it failed, but who absolutely refuses to file a claim and get hi* money. Application has been made for a guardian for the old gentleman, who is slightly deranged. Baptist* Klccti Officers.
