"Thla Ib indeed a very great honor and

v/hat could be more beautiful and more Inapir

This L'nlon ln a llttle more than 100 years has
done more for the human race than any other

upon Its career of progress. How we ahould
love this l'nlon! God move our hearts to atand
up ln every erisls of the future as we have

"I am especlally glad, my fellow-citizene. to
meet thls large and repreaentatlve deiegatlon
from your enterprlsing city. I eongratulate you
upon the wonderful devebpment and advanee
ment of your local materlal resources, unknown
and undeveloped untll touched by the maglc
wand of Amerlcan ekill and inventlon. both of
whlch have b*en so greatly qulckcnr-d by a long
eatabllshed and wloa lndusirlal system. We
have had many marvellous ehanges in the
economy of our homes since the elose' of the re
belllon, but I recall noue that have been more
complete and surprlslng than those of our fuel
and llght. nor the growth of any Industry that
has been so rapid in many respeets and so
beneflcial as that in which Oll City is so proml
nent and eonsplcuous. (Great applause.)
"Oll Clty, I take lt. Mr. Chalrman, has had
a most Intereatlng and somewhnt romantlc hls
tory as tho prlnclpal market of the Pennsyl
vania oll reglons. and for that matter of all
the States produeing oll, and has made won
derful progress sinea petroleum was flrat
Bhlpped to you by rafts and flatboats until now,
when you have a great trade by the railroads
and pipe line; but I am glad to know that your
oil reflneries and oll well supply compantes
are by no means your only industries, but that
you have gone on developing Amerlcan pro
ductive enterprlses until your boiler tube,
wagon. barrel, organ. machine and other shops
have a eapital of 92.668,000, employlng about
2.500 hands. and pay an average of $5,000 per
day for labor in all your varlous industries.
TROGRKSS 1'NDER PROTECTION'.
"Such thrift in a citv of 14,000 Inhabitants is
Indeed to be commended; but dld you ever
refV s* that this is Just what we have or did
hav, all over the I'nited States? The great men
who founded Pennsylvania and have guarded
her Interests slnee very properly turned their
attention to the establishment and encourage
ment of manufactures wlth such marked sue
cess that the great Keystone State has become
not only the llfo of industry, but the Common
wealth of prosperous traders and farmers and
eontented homes. (Great apnlause and crles of
"Hurrah for Pennsylvania!")
"The system I would favor for the eountry ls
the system of the fathera?a system whlch
came tn with the Government, a system wlth
whlch we have had the hljjhest degree of pros?
perlty, which seeks the same growth in popu?
latlon, the same Increaoe ln wealth. the same
diffusion of prosperlty everywhere that you
have enjoyed in Penn3>lvanla. (Applause.)
"If you will but glance at the cen6us maps
Bhowlng the proportlon of Improved and unim
proved lands in the I'nited States; if you will
eonsider for an instant the eause of our ln
ereased populatlon; if you wlll take into ealcu
latton our marvellous resources, which are aa
yet but little known, 1 thlnk you wlll agree with
me that we ought to have a distlnct and pro
nouneed industrial and commercial pollcy, gen
ulnely American nnd thoroughly patrlotlc.
"Faetories should lner?ase all over thls eoun?

(Great applause and rrles of "That's right!")
Let us not be dlsturbed by our productlon, but
r.ther take means of preventing the under-eon
aumption of Amerlcan produets, by preservlng
and enlarging our home market and extending
our foreign markets beyond the sea. (Applause
and crles of "Good!" "Good!") Let u. contlnue
the pollcy of Washington. Hamilton. Jefferson,
Llncoln, of Grant, Stevens, of your own State
(applause), and Cameron, Rlaine and Garfleld,
and the scores of other dlstinguished statesmen
whoae great services made this the greatest and
most prosperous eountry of the world. Equal
credlt could perhaps be aceorded to others than
the lllustrious names I have mentioned, but
greater dlstinetion none can elaim. (Cheers.)
Their flrst. their nobleat, their hlghest asplra

"We want to eultlvate a hlgher Natlonal spirit.

Major McKlnley's address ln response to the re
marks of Colonel Huff, the spokesman. waa as
"Colonel Huff and my fellow-cltlzens of Woot
moreland County: I thank you. one and all. for
the good checr whlch you bring me to-day. It
glves me especial pleasure to weleome you when I
reftect on the long dlstance you have travelled
and the great dlscomfort you must have been sub
Jec.ted to, and that you have come here to testlfy
your devotlon to Republlcan principles and your
desire for the succesa of the Republlcan party.
(Applause.) Prlnelplea ln such a contest are
everythlng; they art masterful, and everythlng
else must be subordlnated to them. In this con?
test ojd party lines are b^ing more or less effaced,
and patrlotlc cltlzena are cornlng together upon
one common piatform to suataln the publlc honor
and support the good falth of the Oovernment of
the I'nited States. (Great cheerlng and applause.)
Thls contest ln some of Its aspects Is the old, yet
ever new and eternal contest between right and
wrong. Standlng for the right. aa we belleve, for
can there be any doubt that standlng for Natlonal
honor and Natlonal credlt and Natlonal currency

"Ho, never!") Llncoln said in one of those great
debatea agair.st Douglas: 'It's a queatlon be?
tween right and wrong that ls the real Issue.
That Is the issue that wlll contlnue in thls eoun?

A OREAT PRINCIPI.E AT STAKE.
"We are confronted this year wlth a questton
of no mere partisan differenee, but w Ith a great
moral prlnclple; a queatlon. I admlt, that ought
never to enter into polltleal dlscusslon. but
whlch. having arisen. must be courageously
met by the Amerlcan people, and settled once
for all upon the eternal principles of right,
Justiee and honor (applause and three eheers
for McKlnley), and so settled, I trust, that the
llke of lt wlll never be ralsed again. (Crles of
"It never will be!") But, my fellow-cltlzens,
what Is the proposltlon gravely presented to us?
Both of the great polltleal partles of thlH eoun?
try have at dlfferent times, the Republlcan and
Democratlc, ln the most deliberate and blnding
manner placed upon the statute books of the
Unlted States the expressed declaration that
'all our money, whether gold. sllver or paper,
shall be kept equal in value by every resoqree
at the command of the Government.' (Tre

"If the suggestion is made that thls course in

Issue betwen right and wrong. between honor
and dlshonor; and I belleve It wlll. on refleetion,
be s<> considered by an overwhelmlng majorlty

mendous applause and cheerlng.) We cannot
afford to trlfle about a matter so serlous and
vltal to our standlng and welfare as a people;
and I appeal to you, my fellow-cltlzens of Went

and our instltutlons, to rlse In their mlght and
defeat thls unworthy appeal by such a vast ma?

and crles of "We will!")
"You come from the coal reglons of Pennsyl?

good money and the mnlntenance of our Natlonal
honor, the other Issue of this campalgn ls the
restoratlon of our protective pollcy. (A volce:
"That's the stuff!") I think it Is patrlotlc and
profitable, for exsmple, to use Amerlcan coal
rather than forelgn coal. (Orles <>f "You're
right!") I think the use of forelgn coal, whlch
makes ldle miners in the Unlted Stat.-s, Is a
most cxponslve experiment for the American
people. (Crles of "That's right!") We must go
back to the pollcy and condltlons of 18B0 to start
our faetories and in.-reas.- .,ur d.-mand for Ameri?
