FROM CONVENTIONS AND IN

Has Little to Say on Money, but Dis
cusses Other Subjects
CANTON, 0., May B.—We were seated In
Maj. McKinley's private ofllee overlooking a
large lawn, and located in the first room to
the right of the front entrance to the house.
The major was extremely affable. He had
Just finished luncheon and was comfortably
seated In a revolving desk chair, blowing
blue clouds of fragrant smoke cellingward,
and evidently a most happy and satisfied
"Maj. McKinley," I ventured timidly,
"there seems to be little doubt of your nom
ination and It also looks as though the con
vention in St. Louis would predominate with
gold men. You have never expressed your
views. Your intimate friends all say you
ere for gold. Now, what—" I paused. The
major nodded in that thoughtful way, which
signifies that he had followed me and was
waiting for me to go on. Then he puffed :n
silence a few moments and held his cigar
outstretched, while he blew smoke at it.
Then he turned to his desk. He searched
intently his papers for a few moments.
"Let's see," he uttered slowly, "where did I
—oh, yes. There up stairs, I say," turning
to one of his assistants, "just run up stairs
and bring me down a copy of my last
HIS LAST SPEECH.
The man returned shortly with the desired
pamphlet and the major turned the leaves
until he lighted on the paragraphs he sought.
Then he borrowed a pencil (which, by the
way, he dint give back) and drew a line
along the margin. I took the pamphlet and
"It (the Republican party) stands now, as
ever, for honest money and a chance to earn
It by honest toil. It stands for a currency of
gold, silver and paper with which to measure
our exchanges that shall be as sound as the
government and as untarnished as its honor.
The Republican party would as soon think
of lowering the flag of our country as to
contemplate with patience or without protest
and opposition any attempt to degrade or cor
rupt the medium of exchanges among our
people. It can be relied upon in the future,
as in the past, to supply our country with
the best money ever known, gold, silver and
paper, good the world over."
Now, what does Maj. McKinley mean by
commenting on the currency question by re
ferring to this paragraph? I had stated to
him that the convention might declare for
gold. He had been told that all his friends
were gold men. He had been informed that
they all considered him with them. And to
not one of these statements did Maj. McKin
ley demur. On the contrary, he nodded in
Bilence and for comment displayed his ut
terances at the Marquette club banquet on
Lincoln's birthday. Did his silence mean
acquiescence to the propositions? Do these
itatements mean that he ls a gold man?
ON OTHER SUBJECTS.
But if Maj. McKinley plays the sphinx
when national issues are touched upon he
will discuss other subjects as freely as one
can desire, and in a manner which is most
instructive, as well as interesting. Maj.
McKinley is a most polished gentleman. His
smoothness disarms and makes powerless an
Interviewer, who would lead him on with
statements, which at the present stage of
the presidential contest would be read with
avidity by millions of people. But before re
peating to you the talk which the major gave
me the other day let me tell you something
of his dally life—of his surroundings. He
lives with his wife ln what is known to
Cantonians as the "old Harter residence" on
Market street, in this thriving little city.
The house is a plain frame structure, located
on one of the prettiest streets ln the city, and
in one of the most beautiful of locations,
situated as it is a. the Bummlt of a sloping
hill, and commanding a fine outlook. The
major does not own the house. He rents it,
'tis said, at a monthly rental of $40, but it
ls home in every sense of the word to him
and his invalid wife, for nearly a quarter of
a century ago he brought his young bride to
this home, and although many years have
passed since they left, there are many dear
and cherished associations, some sad, some
bright, which cluster around the pleasant
place, and it is for this reason that, return
ing to Canton and private life, the house
THE LATCHSTRING ALWAYS OUT.
It is not hard to gain access to the house
and an audience with McKinley. Veritably
the latchstring of hospitality seems always
out, and of the scores of visitors who call on
Maj. McKinley each day it is the one com
ment, "Why, how cordial and yet how re
served he is."
It requires but a ring at the bell to bring
a colored man servant to the door. He will
admit you and usher you directly into the
major's office to the right. If the governor
be not in, then he will ask for your card,
not by presenting a solid silver tray for you
to deposit your pasteboard upon, but by tak
ing it in his hand.
Unless the governor is very busy, there will
be no tedious delay, and almost immediately
he will appear. In fact, you will have had Just
time enough to glance at the desk Uttered with
letters and telegrams, to cast your eyes on the
walls and see a large picture of Mrs. McKin
ley over the desk, a picture of Lincoln and
Grant at either end of the room, and a picture
of Gladstone and Judge Goff on the opposite
wall from the desk, before you are shaking
Maj. McKinley by the hand, and are hearing
his pleasant-voiced inquiries as to what he
could do for you.
The major lunches at about 1:30 each day.
I arrived while he was still at the table, but
three minutes had scarcely passed before he
came ln, puffing a newly lit cigar and seem
ingly happy and contented.
The major announced himself as ln splendid
health, and then, ln answer to questions,
talked pleasantly for a half-hour of his life,
of his work and his estimate of great states
men who have gone before.
HIS BOOK ON THE TARIFF.
"Yes," he said, "I have just finished a re
view of the tariff legislation from the time of
Clay down to the present time, and the book

sent those forwarded to me bftcl* to the pub
lisher. No, I have never been engaged in any
literary work beyond the preparation of my
speeches. I have delivered addresses on Wash
ington and Llnceln, who are my two idols ln
the history of our country, although, perhaps,
I should include Grant in the list. lam going
to talk on Washington next month in Cleve
land before the Methodist conference. That is
the only engagement I have in advance. In
fact, I expect to remain at home all summer."
"Having studied the lives of both Washing
tor and Lincoln," I asked, "how would you
campare them? Which do you put first?"
"I hardly know," answered Maj. McKinley.
"The" two men were of totally different types.
Each had his own niche to fill and each filled
It to its fullest They both served their coun
try, and the work of both has still its influ
ence in our nation."
Maj. McKinley talked of other things. He
told how he arose and breakfasted each
mornifig at 8 o'clock, then went with his
wife into his office and looked over his morn
ing mall, which genf.rally consisted of from
100 to 200 letters, and how from then until
noon frequent interruptions prevented him
fiom deing much work.
"You would scarcely believe it," he said,
"but this morning there have been at least
fifty callers, and I have seen them all. So it
goes each day. After lunch I generally walk
to my mother's house and make a visit to
her. Then I return, and frem then until
dinner I work. My mothez is now eighty
seven years eld. Wednesday is her birth
day, and, of course, we shall have a pleasant
reunion of the family."
EVERYBODY LIKES HIM.
Maj. McKinley has lived in Canton for
many years. He knows everybody and
everybody knows him, and, furthermore,
likes him. Every resident of Canton wants
to see him nominated, and is doing his ut
giost to secure that end.
Perhaps as good a picture of McKi»ley's
domestic life was given by a well-to-do old
gentleman, who Is a deacon In the Metho
dist church, and who has known Ohio's Na
poleon for many long years. I was fortunate
in meeting him, for the word picture he gave
me of the home life of Maj. McKinley was
as perfect as though one entered and lived
within the portals. The old gentleman, now
in the decline of life, is a most, ardent ad
mirer of Maj. McKinley, and is a frequent
caller at his house, where he is treated as
though he were one of the family. As a
matter of fact, though, I found not a single
resident of Canton who did not claim long
personal experience with the now famous
"I have known William McKinley," said
the old deacon, "from the time he flrst ran
for prosecuting attorney, ln 18G9, and, al
though Stark county was a Democratic
stronghold, he was elected and served two
years. The next time he ran, though, he
was defeated. From that time he has fig
ured prominently ln politics, and in 187« we
sent him to congress. We lltUe thought
when he was prosecuting cases way back
there in the late sixties that we'd hay*. a.
chance to vote for him as president in 1896."
If may be said in explanation that all Can
tonlans consider McKinley as good as nomi
nated, and for that matter as good as elected.
HIS HOME LIFE,
"Well, you said you wanted something
about him at home. I can tell you anything
that you want me to. Has he changed any
slnee he got to be famous? No, sir; not a
bit of it. He's the same unassuming man
that he ever was. Why, we don't think of
him In any other way but as our friend. He
i 3 pretty busy now, you see, but he'll see us
any time we call. I was up there the other
morning bright and early, along about 8
o'clock, and I found the major in his office
opening his mail. He always does that after
breakfast. His wife sat next to him a-clip
ping the envelopes and pulling the letters
about half-way out All that he did was to
read 'cm. She always helps him that way.
Say, do you know that's a pretty picture,
that life of theirs? There they are married
nigh on to twenty-live years, and yet they
hain't done courting yet. She's an Invalid,
you know, and he l<*rcs her and pets her just
like as though she was a child. Well, the
major, after opening his mail, receives call
ers, and, say, you should see who they are.
Why, they run all the way from beggars up to
gov'nors and senators. Their names?" and
the old man's eyes twinkled. "Oh, no, I
can't give' 'way state secrets. I can tell you
one thing, though, they don't come to put up
deals. They come to shake hands with the
major. You see, Mark Hanna up in Cleve
land does all the rest.
TELEGRAMS AND LETTERS.
"All the major does is to answer his cor
respondence and receive callers—and, yes,
telegrams. Every time a convention declares
for him he gets a telegram, and, say, they've
been coming pretty plenty these last few
weeks. Did you notice 'em on that spindle
on the top of his desk? Those are a few cf
his late ones. The major takes lunch at 1
o'clock and then goes over to his mother's.
She lives down there on Tuscarora street.
She's eighty-seven years old, and he dotes on
her as much as ever. He generally walks
down, smoking a cigar and bowing to all his
friends. Say, and speaking about smoking,
I read in a paper the other day that Maj.
McKinley smoked as much as Grant used to.
Now that hain't so. He smokes about four
cigars a day. I know it. As I say, he goes
down to his mother, and spends an hour
and then goes back home' to work. He al
ways thought a great deal of his mother and
they used to always walk to church together
Sunday morning. That's the chusch over
there," and the old man pointed with his
cane toward the splendid stone structure
which rears its steeple Just a block away
from the principal corners of the city.
"He's in full communion with the church,
rents a sitting and used to be superintendent
of the Sunday school. THat was before he
got to be a politician, though. If you want
to answer some of those A. P. A. stories you
better drop around and see the minister. He
lives next to the church. His name is Ed
monds. Go and see him. He'll talk to you,"
and I left the old man to follow his advice
and see the minister.
His wife answered my summons at the
door and Informed me that her husband was
out of the city, but when I made known my
object, she really assented to say something.
A GOOD METHODIST.
"That's all nonsense," she said, "about
Maj. McKinley being a Roman Catholic.
Why, he's one of the best Methodists in the
city. He's a good Methodist and comes to
church Just as regularly as he can, with his
wife sick and other things. Why, it used to
be a common thing to see Maj. McKinley and
his mother coming down the aisle' together.
My husband is receiving letters every day
asking about his religion and he ls replying

How the Monkey Brought the Boy
and Girls te School.
The newest service rendered by mon
keys to mankind was recently illus
trated in London. In one of the school
districts too many parents reported no
children in their families, and ln order
to ascertain the real number of chil
dren in the district the school officers
resorted to an ingenious measure, Two
monkeys were gayly dressed, put in a
wagon, and, accompanied by a brass
band, were carried through the streets
of the district. At once crowds of chil
dren made their appearance. The pro
cession was stopped in a park, and the
school officers began their work; dis
tributing candies to the youngsters
they took their nan__.r__<_-addresses.
They found out that over sixty parents
had kept th_r children from school.
The ingenious measure brought to the
school about 200 boys and girls.
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, MAY 11, 1896.
m ORlanoma's flew w^m #
Mary Smith, a young woman, was
recently arrested In Oklahoma, at the
home of a family named Hughes, on
the charge of counterfeiting. Prior to
her arrest she arrived in Arkansas
City from Southeastern Kansas, pro
cured a livery rig and went to Mr.
Hughes' home. She had been there
but a few days,, however, when an
officer followed her, placed her under
arrest, and took her back to Kansas.
From the meager facts learned it seems
she had formerly been engaged teach
ing school in Southwest Missouri, and,
while so engaged, formed the acquaint
ance of an outlaw from the Indian
Territory named Huffman. As Des
demona became enraptured with Oth
ello for the deeds of daring he related,
this little Missouri school teacher be
came fascinated by the bold outlaw of
the Indian country, and she forsook
school, friends and all to become hia
There was another gay and dashing
robber in the gang who looked upon
Mary's charms in a lovenlike way, re
gardless of Huffman's prior claims
thereto. Mary became smitten with
the new robber lover, and, forgetting
Huffman, ran off with the new love.
Such actions upon the part of Mary
and her new outlaw lover aroused the
ire of Huffman, and, arming himself
with a whole arsenal, he swore dire
vengeance upon lover No. 2, and start
ed upon his trail.
The two rivals met in a Joint at
Caney, Kan., and when the smoke
cleared away, both men were lying
bleeding upon the floor, with empty
six-shooters beside them. They wera
placed under arrest and physician 3
summoned to attend them. An exam
ination revealed that they were both
pretty thoroughly "shot up," but their
wounds were not necessarily fatal.
By telling each that the other con
fessed, a confession was drawn out
of each, in which the fact was dis
closed that they were members of a
counterfeiting gang, and that Mary-
Smith, the school teacher, was the per
son relied upon to get the money into
circulation. In the meantime Mary
had decamped, but officers were upon
her trail and captured her in Nobles
The arrest of this Miss Smith revives
interest in another notorious woman
lawbreaker, known as Jessie E. Find
ley, who was indicted by the federal
grand jury of Oklahoma county on
Nov. 26 last, and is now confined in
the United States jail in Guthrie,
awaiting her trial, which will take
place at the next term of the United

Jessie moved with her parents to
Oklahoma when the country was
thrown open to settlement seven y_ars
ago from Ozark, Mo., where she was
born and reared. Her life was like that
of most girls of tender age -unevent
ful. About the house she was .fight,
apt and decorous, and thought of little
else save "going to meeting," doing
home work and reading novels.
But one day Bob Christian called -at
Jessie's home, met the little brunette
and it was a case of love at first
sight, at least as far as she was con
cerned. Bob and two others of his
gang had stopped there for something
to eat, and Bob, while waiting for the
meal, made love to the cook. He was
a very presentable young desperado.
The meal over, Bob mounted and rode
away, but not before he had made an
appointment to meet his fair hostess at
a not far distant day. The courtship
extended over a period of only two
weeks, and one morning Jessie was
missing. She had eloped with her
She remained with him for several
months, riding with the gang on sev
eral forages, but usually staying at
the cabin and acting as housekeeper
and cook. Bob taught her to shoot
and to ride, and she soon became very
proficient in the use of the revolver
and rifle and not afraid to mount the
wildest broncho. She ventured where
even the bravest of the gang was
afraid to go, and it is related that at
one time she plunged into the North
Canadian with her pony when it was
running bank full, and not one of the
boys dared to follow until they were
goaded to it by her revilings and epi
About this time Bob and Bill Chris
tian were arrested for killing Deputy
Sheriff Turner, of Pottawatomie coun
ty, who was attempting to arrest them
for cattle stealing. This was the first
murder that could be brought home
to them, and the prosecution was thor
ough and prompt. They were con
victed of the crime and sentenced to
long terms in the penitentiary, and
taken to Oklahoma to await transpor
tation to prison. Jessie was a constant
attendant at the trial and at the Pot
tawatomie jail, bringing her lover nice
things to drink, and when they were
taken to Guthrie for s_fe keeping,
pending their transportation to the
penitentiary, she followed them, and
was a dally visitor at the jail.
Jessie succeeded in smuggling three
revolvers to them, with thirty rounds
of ammunition. The attempt to es
cape was to be made on Sunday, June
30, and on Friday, after she had per-

day came, and -the attempt was made.
The two Christians and James Casey,
another murderer confined in the jail,
overpowered the jailer and made their
way Into the street.
A Sabbath stillness was over the city,
it being about 5 o'clock in the even
ing, and very few citizens abroad. The
desperate men, each with a cocked re
volver in his hand, ran down the street,
passing Chief of Police Milton W.
Jones on the way. He noticed, they
were in their shirt sleeves, and, sus
pecting something wrong, called upon
them to halt. They answered with a
shot, which killed the chief instantly.
Their volley was answered by shots
from Officers Jackson and Stovall,
which killed Casey and badly wounded
Bill Christian. The two Christians
made their escape through the aid of
confederates, who met them on the
edge of the town with fresh horses,
and were soon beyond pursuit,
Jessie was instantly suspected of
having introduced the weapons into the
jail, and while strenuous efforts were
made to recapture the Christians, a
posse of men were sent out to Bob
Christian's cabin to effect the cap

the whole snap away if she could be

To facilitate ,her escape Jessie was
dressed in a cowboy costume —slouch

all the paraphernalia ol the typical
rustler. Putting her on horseback, they
compelled her to ride from point to
point, some of them accompanying her
all the time, and permitting her to have
no converse with strangers. They gave
her but little rest for five days, and
it may be said, she was in the saddle
continually, night and day, for that
length of time, doubling and redoub
ling on her pursuers. She estimates
that she rode 250 miles in those five
days, and when she was finally taken
to a negro settlement in the Choctaw
country, she was almost dead with
She made up her mind by this time
that her life was in great danger. By
what the different members of the
gang who had ridden with her had
let drop from time to time she knew
almost to a certainty that they were
fixing to sacrifice her for the good of
the gang, fearing that she would give
them away if she was captured. She
made up her mind that they had
brought her to this negro settlement
to kill her, for all of the negroes were
sympathizers of the Christians or mem
bers of the band.
Besides this she had found that Bob
was playing her false—had other wom

and with all the bitter feelings of a
woman scorned, she resolved to give

Men Who Follow Excursion Steal
ers in Yawls—Private Wedding?
Odd and remunerative avenues of
employment are constantly being
opened up in New York. Here is one
of the very latest: A competent ste
nographer who arrived from England
a year ago was unable to find work.
On& day while reading the brief no
tices in the daily papers of the ob
sequies of a distinguished citizen he
was struck by the scant mention of
"the touching and eloquent tribute to
the memory of the deceased," deliv
ered by the officiating clergyman.
He attended the next Fifth avenue
funeral, gettiie well down in front of
the church, where he took a full steno
graphic report of the prayer—and "elo
quent tribute." A few days later he
appeared at the home of the widow
with a neatly type-written copy of
both prayer and sermon. He suggest
ed that she would no doubt like to
preserve as a souvenir of the dear de
parted the truthful and eloquent re
view of his life, so delightfully given
on the occasion of the obsequies.
The widow w"s deeply impressed,
and also bent a willing ear to the sug
gestion that a dozen or more copies
would be a suitable remembrance to
send to absent relatives or near and
dear friends. The young man was
willing to furnish twenty copies of the
sermon and prayer for $100. The wid
ow, who was not supposed to know
anything about the cost of typewrit
ing, thought this was a most reason
This was the commencement of a
prosperous business. The stenographer
has been so busy at times as to re
quire two assistants. He recently at
tended a swell wedding and took down
the remarks of the officiating divine
at the wedding breakfast. The parents
of the bride gave a liberal order for
copies, and private wedding reports
will now be a regular feature of his
business. To this end he has employed
a young man of good social connection
who can secure cards of admission to
swell social functions.
A tall, well-dressed man, with glossy
silk hat, well-trimmed whiskers of the
cut once called "Burnsides," but now
generally known as "sideburns," is a
daily figure in the Wall street district.
He, too. is conducting a prosperous
business designed by himself. He car
ries a neat rosewood case about two feet
long by eighteen inches high and six
inches thick, which might contain sur
gical instruments or valuable samples.
His manner is so dignified, and as he al
ways seems to know just where he
wants to go, elevator boys, hall guards
or janitors >never dream of calling his at
tention to the signs announcing that
"Bootblacks, peddlers and solicitors are
not allowed in this building."
The handsome rosewood case is a com
pact portable bar. On one side there
are three bottles, one of gin, one of rye
whisky of a famous brand, and the
other filled with brandy of a great age.
The other side contains bottles of bit
ters, sugar, lemon peel and handsome
glassware. The tall man has for thirty
years been employed in the bars of
leading New York hotels, and he is a
past grand master in the art of mixing
cocktails. He is prepared on his daily
round to make the seductive Manhat
tan, Martini or plain cocktails of gin
rye or brandy. He has a regular cli
entele. Many of his customers are men
who are never to be amn drinking in
public. Others are men who make no
secret of their fondness for the good
things In the alcoholic line, but who do
not care to interrupt the office routine
to go after what can be brought to them

The walking barkeeper charges fan
cy prices for his drinks, but he deals
only with people who are willing to pay
for the unique accommodation. Asked
one day whether he had an excise li
cense, the dinified man Intimated that
by permission he was working under
the license of a famous down-town feu
loon of many years' standing.
In the summer time during the ex
cursion season a man of seafaring ap
pearance will be noted seated in the
yawl which the law requires shall be
kept trailing after each vessel or barge
containing pasengers. There are a doz
en of these men. They are not employ
ed by the owners of the vessels, but
are given permission to ride in the
yawls. They sit there as a matter*of
speculation and their revenue is ln the
shape of rewards received for the res
cue of hats that are blown overboard,
or of men, women and children who
fall, are pushed or thrown overboard.
In the cities of Europe the business
of guide or commissioner has long been
established. In New York city the driv
er of cab or carriage acts as guide,
pointing out objects of interest to
strangers, and some of them do the
work with tact and intelligence. Re
cently there has appeared in the col
umns of the World a small advertise
ment announcing that "parties desiring
to visit the slums of New York will
be supplied with trustworthy guides
at reasonable rates." It is a private
detective agency that has entered this
field, and the white loafers of China
town and the Bowery who formerly
forced themselves upon slumming par
tie^ fell as if the iron heel of capital
had been placed athwart their short,
Methodist Episcopal ministers -and dele
gates going to the general conference meet
ing at Cleveland, 0., May 1 to 31, should
keep in mind that the most convenient
way of reaching that point ls via ths Albert
Lea route, which makes direct connections
at Chicago in the union depot with trains
of the Lake Shore _ Michigan Southern
railway for Cleveland, thus avoiding a long
and tedious transfer which passengers are
subject to by taking any other route. Rate,

More Barbary Pirates.
New York Sun.
The pirates on the Barbary coast are at it
again. Whjgi the Ailsa, returning from her
races with the Prince of Wales' boat on the
French Riviera, found herself fired upon
within sight of the rock of Gibraltar, and es
caped capture only by the freshening of the
breeze, her owner must have wondersd If he
had not been put a century back, before the
United States navy made the Mediterranean
The depredations of the Riff pirates are due
to England's dog-ln-the-manger policy. Spain
two years ago, in its little but expensive
Melllla war, got the upper hand of the Rif
flans, and would probably have made them
powerless had it not been for the intimation
that any permanent occupation of the Mor
occo coast would be regarded as an infringe
ment on British interests. She had to content
herself with an indemnity, for which she
paid dearly, as it will be recollected that it
was on its return from conveying the Moor
ish ambassador home that her orack cruiser,
the Reina Regente, waa lost with every soul
