Travel a Thousand Miles^to Call on Maj. McKinley, Another Indiana Delegation Makes the First Visit of the Day fc> Canton. . Canton, 0., Got. 23.'— It was alter sunset Thursday evening when Maj. McKinley addressed a delegation of Indiana republicans. They wore the last callers of the day. Before sunrise Friday morning there was another party of visitors from the Hoosier state came to Canton to pay their respects to the republican candidate for president, They were the first callers of the day. The' delegation represented Logansport, Newcastle,. Kokomo, Anderson and r.ichmond. After breakfast the party was escorted to Maj. McK'niley's residence by the Canton citizens' committee. W. 'H. Klliott, of the Newcastle Courier, ac-tol as spokesman. Maj. McKinley in responding spoke as follows: TitrllT nnd Money. "Nothing but deep concern for the future of the country would have Induced this hody of my countrymen to travel nil miriit th-\i Uicy mifjht bring: assurances of support to the preat republican cause tills year jocniw thoy believe that enveloped In that cause are the hifc-hcst ana best interests of our common country. I am K'lad to welcome you to my homo and am t:liui to have the assurance of your spokesman that the fires of republicanism 'arc tfowlnw so brightly In ihe state of Harrison, that splendid urd patriotic statesman, und the homoof that other srcat statesman and war governor, Oliver P. Morton. "Four yonrsi HEO it was said to tnc people of this country, who were under prosperous and healthy conditions, that they were sulTerlns. and that free trade would cure all tlie Ills, real or supposed, they had, and tlrnt It would be the panacea for all their troubles they had. We did not have many troubles then— very much fewi'r than we have now. But we trice] the prescription they offered us and voted for free trade. You men about me know better the result of that vote by your experiences of the last three and a half years than I can tell you. Frf.e trade did not brlnp us more trhde. It did not brlns us more waRts. It did not bring us better prices for oiir farni products, did It? Did It brlng.anythlnsbut Injury and distress to the country? ["No ] Now they propose, bavins trot us Into this condition, to K et us out of It by the free coinage ot silver, by eolnlnsMhe silver ol the world and opening our mints to the silver of the world. And now they say that 5; cents of silver shall be worth a dollar to the American people and want you to accept It. This is the euro they offer for nil our pr-sent ills. How will fre<; silver Increase the demand for labor? How -i-lll It Increase the demand for wheat? Will It Increase the wages of labor In this country, open new markets, for the American farmer and new avenues of work for the laboring man? If you started all tho mintii of this country working to; their fullest capacity and extent you would not Increase the demand for labor, corn or any American product. "The cry Is that wo have not enough money. Now everybody knows that is not true. Wo never had such prosperous times as In 1852 and we have just as much money now as we had then. It is not a. lack of money that Is at fault; it 13 the difllculty of .putting men to work and creating markets for our products. You cannot make 62 cents a dollar and make a sold dollar worth 100 cents • circulate alongside of It. . Thu Bold dollar will fio out and every paper dollar based on pold will go out and there will bo less circulating medium, and Instead of the good money we have now we shall have poo'r money. Can you tell me how tho free coinage of silver is going to help business? It will not increase tho demand for anything but silver. There will be an Increase In the production of silver, but then down goes the price of silver, and then you will have to consult your paper every mornlnR to see what silver is worth. [A voice: 'I have been in Mexico and know that's so.'] We do not want such money in the United States, Wo want dollars worth 100 centa. It is the lost Job that Is troubling us, it Is not motley, but the lost market that la troubling us." Kansas, Kansas, Eip. Hah, Hoe, She's for McKinley! KUUNUH Dulugation Cull*. This wus the shout which greeted Maj. McKiuley when he stepped out on *iis porch lit noon Friday to address 200 Santa Fe railroad men from Emporia and Tbpeka, Kan. The delegation cnmc 1,P80 miles to see Maj. Me- Kinley, and the men ha'd been on the cars for 34 hours, but their enthusiasm was unbounded. They Sheered and shouted and applauded for several minutes.

Chicago, Oct. 23.—Chairman Jlatna, of : the republican national committee, Friday issued a statement in reply to Thursday's bulletin from democratic headquarters in which workmen were advised to ask their employers for contracts insuring them against a reduction of wages in- the event of McKinley's election. Mr. Uanna says: "It Is suggested that employers bribe thc'r workmen to vote for McKinley by promising them higher wapes or a continuance of their present wages. In the event that the employers will not be coerced, then til's employe Is to vote for Bryan, not because he believes Bryan is best fitted for the preslilency or represents principles •that will advance the Interests of the American people, but because Ills employer may not deem it a wise business policy to sife-n a contract In the matter of wages. Tills IH simply Inciting the worklnsmttii to caxt a bribe before be will vote. It Is not suggested tbat be be governed by any principle. Plainly speaking, tbey are advised to Inform him that hu must bribe, tlieni In, tbo matter of wages or thoy will vote Buculnst his Intercuts. It has always been my opinion that the interests ot the em- ployes and their employer arc Identical. AH J said IP. a recent statement,. I do not believe worldngmen are foolish enough or slavish enouj; 1 !! to'be coerced: nor do 1 believe they arc; di-spotlc enough to attempt to cot'i'cu their employer. "This seditious bulletin is Intruded to foment trouble between capital and labor. I would-advise the worlilnsrnien to vole according 10 tiii.'lr conscientious opinions. 1C .they ha.ve any business to transact with th'air employers UIK.V can do it. better upon business than upon political srounds. But 1 am aot surprised at this development in the Jirytin campaign. Jt has been evident for souit time, thai it was the: intention or •the lio'an inaiiafjer.s to create labor troubles as u part of their plan oC campaign, And this la an o]>jr. step in that di.ruclion. They would precipitate a jjuner- ul strike before tho election. Men whu would rontilvu to destroy peaceful rulations ex- islin;; between capltol a.-.<I labor are none too good to ao even worse." .CHARLES F. CRISP DEAD.

Lord Salisbury Compels Chinese Legation • In IxMi'iok to Surrender ltd I'rlsoour. London, Oct. 23.—The London mend* of the Chinese physician, Sun Yat Sen, who a few days ago was seized by emissaries' of the Chinese legation aud is still detained at the legation as a Chinese political prisoner, say the au- thpriti^s of the'British foreign office hn'ew uotJimg- whatever of the imprisonment of Sun Yat Sen until informed by'his friends. Detectives in the employ of the foreign office-are constantly on watch in the vicinity of the Chinese legation in'order to prevent the smuggling of the prisoner out of the country. The case will be referred to the Jcgal authorities of the crown. The Chinese authorities now make no secret of' the fact that Sun Yat Sen is a prisoner at (he legation and contend that they can do what they jikc with a Chinese subject within the Chinese le"atioji, which is Chinese territory to alt intents and purposes. The British authorities on the other,hand maintain that the rights of foreign legations are protective only as-regards their lawful inmates and are in no sense administrative. Lord Salisbury lias made a demand upon the Chinese legation for the immediate release of Sun Vat Sen, and Ills request was eomplied.with and Sun Yat Sen was released from the legation.at. five o'cloo.k Friday afternoon. > 'WHEAT TENDS UPWARD. MttTltnt.

At the pxpii-atiori of the first halt hour December w<is quoted at 72%c—2%C' higher than it closed Thursday. The earlier improvement .in wheat'wns sustained, to the close. Bulls gradually recovered their nerve, and when it was reported that San Francisco had sold .another cargo for shipment to India the buying 'became sharp. Friees advanced : until they were about in the position occupied"" at the opening. Lster a flurry carried prices still another %c up, but here the selling- became hinvy and the advance was not unstained. • December closed at 73y s c— hlghej: than Thursday. Cincinnati, Oct. 2;!.— The cyg-ihrow- ing e))isode "at the Carlisle meeting in Covington is ubout as stated iu Thursday night's dispatches. As the secretary stepped to the front of the si age to address an audience of hi.S townspeople, two stale eggy were hurled from the rear of the hull. One struck the chandelier in the center of I lie hull, the substance trickling flown upon the audience. The other struck near Mayor Rhinock, who with his wife and other ladies occupied sea's in Hie front row. A couple of minutes later another egg- was thrown which struck Die lower edge of the stage. 1'robably not more than a down persons in the hall k?iew tiiat tlie eggs had been thrown.

The only attempt at violence tov.-.-mi Mr. Carlisle wasiiv.ulc by a man nomeii !'":ig-in, ;i plasterer, who. unable to gc-t into the hall, had remained outside. As Mr. Carlisle came out of the hail, Fiigin excitedly threw a lighted cigar at him, str-liing him .in the face.

Mr. Carlisle left: Friday afternoon for Cowling (ii-oi'ii, hi? next appointment. A synopsis of Secretary Carlisle's address a.t Covington is as follows: The secretary srioke In eulogistic terms ol Gen*. Palmer nnd Bucltner, ar.d said thoy stood conspicuously In this conical for law and orrior, for the Inviolability of oomrocis, for The Independence and manhood of all classes of our people, for Juat and equal taxation for public piirpOBO? only, for a sound and 'stable currency, and for' th« maintenance of the national authority and national honor under all circumstances. A Shot nt Fiiiilon. He said: "The nominations made at Chl- raso-'have been partially repudiated by the very men who made ihem tn a majority ot the states. The national and state committees appointed to carry on the cam- paten and pledged to the iiupport of both !he nominees of the Chicago convention— to the support of one Just, as much. as to the support of tho other—have In 26 or Z7 states deliberately entered into arrangements and combinations to deprive one of the nominees of a lurge number of electoral votes and give them to another candidate not nominated by that convention, nor by any'other convention even pretend- IriK to be democratic, and yet these gen- tiemen have the assurance to call us bolt- ers and the, presidential candidate himself. who ha« countenanced and encouraged the sacrifice of his associate on the ticket, whose nomination was as regular as his own,, tells us that we cannot 'get back Into the .democratic party, unless wo come In' sackcloth und ashes.' Gentlemen, we are not out of 'the democratic party, and we do not Intend to KO out or be put out. Economic Effect of Free Colnnee. Secretary Carlisle proceeded to discuss at Icnsth the economic effects of free sllve' 1 (•olnase. "Its advocates advanced thrcrt distinct and wholly Inconsistent propositions. Their first proposition," he said, "I* that free coinage at tho ratio of sixteen to one will glte the people cheap money, that It will reduce the value of the dollai about one-Half, so that It will require abovt twice as many dollars to procure a clven quantity of commodities us are require,! now. This is the high price argument ar,d la addressed to the farmers and so-called. debtor class. Their second proposition Is that free coinage will not make cheap. -jr depreciated mor.oy, but will raise the valuo of the silver dollar to an equality with the present value of Hie gold dollar, and oC course It requires no argument to convince an Intelligent audience that, if this Is true, prices tMll be no higher tlian they are now, and producers and dehlors will g-!t no more dollars than they set now. Thl; is the argument addressed to the more conservative dasses who do not bellcva In a deproci.-ito'd currency, but who have been persuaded that there Is not a sulticlei-.t amount of money in ilie country. Their third proportion, which appears to be u compromise! between the other two, Is thaf free coinage will not Increase the value of the silver dollar to an equality with the present value of the gold dollar, but thot 1: will raise the value of silver up and bring th9 value of gold down so that the two metals will meet at somo Intcrmedlato point HIV] consequently establish parity at Ihf ralio of sixteen lo one. This iirK'-Jn-ient is uiKJrusmud vo those who a:-« supposed to. be in favor of u duprecl.iK-'d currency, but are not yet quite ready to accept a dollar worth only JU cer.tb. TO' CARLISLE.
