Canton, O., June 5. The publication
by a New York paper of what purports
to be a letter indorsing free silver,
written by Maj. McKinley to the Stnrk

to disturb the governor to any' great
extent. When a United Press repre
sentative called at the McKinley resi
dence Thursday evening the subject
of the alleged letter was broached.
When it was mentioned the governor
looked across the room intently at a
picture of Gen. Garfield.
"Oh," said the governor, "about tho
World matter," and as he spoke he
showed a' telegram which he had re
ceived during the afternoon on the
same topic. "Well," said he, "this will
cease in a short time."
When questioned as to its authen
ticity McKinley only smiled, but ut
tered not a word. Those familiar with
McKinley's gesture and smile know it
is useless to talk further on any topic.
