ONE OF THE THINGS M'KINLEY BE
LIEVES LABOR DOES NOT
DELEGATIONS AT CANTON.
TWO PARTIES CALLED TO PAY
THEIR RESPECTS TO THE NOMI
ONE LADIES' CLUB IN THE CROWD.
Addresses Delivered to the Indiana
and the Wood County, Ohio,
CANTON, 0., Sept. 23.— Maj. McKin
ley addressed two delegations today.
The first was from Wood county, Ohio,
and the second from Muneie, Ind. The
latter came on a special train of five
coaches and included four bands, the
First Voters' club, Prosperity McKin
ley club and Veteran soldiers. The
address for Wood county was made
by Attorney E. A. Neadham. To the
Indiana delegation Mr. McKinley said:
It Is needless for me to say that I am
greatly honored to receive this call from my
fellow citizens of Muneie, in the state of
Indiana. I am glad to meet the first voters,
the old veterans and the citizens generally
■who have called to give me assurance of
support and to tender expressions of good
will and congratulation. I must congratu
late this assemblage of Indianans upon the
selection of their spokesman, who has de
livered before me so able and eloquent and
telling a speech. (Applause.) He has said
that "it Is understood I am an American." |
That is altogether true. (Applause.) I be
lieve In America for Americans, native born
and naturalized. (Applause.) I believe in
the American payroll. (Laughter and ap
plause.) And I do not believe in diminishing !
that rayroll by giving work to anybody else,
under another flag, while we have an idle
man under our flag. (Tremendous applause.)
Four years ago, the laborer was agitating
the question of shorter hours. We then had I
so much to do; I have heard no discussions
of that kind for four years. (Laughter and I
applause.) But I have never heard of the |
laboring man discussing the desirability of
having short dollars. The complaint — the |
chief cause of complaint of our opponents —
is, first, that we have not enough money,
and, second, that our money is too good.
(Laughter.) To the first complaint I answer
that the per capita of circulating medium
in this country has been greater since the
so-called crime of 1873 than it ever was be
fore. (Applause.) And that It has been
greater in the last five years than It ever was
in all our history. We have not only the
best money in the world but we haye more
of it per capita than most of the nations
of the world. (Applause.) We have
more money per capita than the United
Kingdom, than Germany, than Italy, than
Switzerland, Greece, Spain,. Roumania, Ser
vla, Austria, Hungary, Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, Russia, Mexico and the Centra!
and South American states, and more than
Japan and China. (Applause.) So that some
reason other than the lack of money must
be found to account for the present condi
tion of the country.
To the second complaint, that our money
Is too good, it would seem to be enough
that the money of any country cannot be |
too good, and that no nation ever suffers
from having its medium of exchange of the
highest and best quality. (Great applause.)
It has been poor money— not good money—
that has been the cause of so much loss
and ruin in the past, both to individuals and \
to nations. (Applause.) The older men of
this audience will remember that before the
war we did business with asi uncertain and
fluctuating currency, known as state bank
money. Many of these banks and their notes
were absolutely sound; but for the most part
they were subject to a discount. The total !
number of banks in IS6O, exclusive of state '
bank branches, was 1,570. Of this number '
the "counterfeit detector," then In constant i
use, reported 832 as "broken, closed, failed, ;
fraudulent or worthless." The notes of these
banks were in circulation among the people
and had been received by them for their good :
labor, and the'.r good products. They were !
absolutely wothless, and of no more value (
than the paper upon which they were printed. I
Upon whom did this loss fall, my fellow '
citizens? There is scarcely ap old gentleman
in this audience who will not recall that it
fell upon the laboring man and Ihe farmers I
of the United States. I allude to this only |
to show that those who suffer most from
poor money are the least able to bear Its '
loss. It Is the history of mankind that the
least valuable mony which will pass cur
rent, Is the money that at last finds Its rest
ing place among the poorer people and when
the crash cornea, the loss must be borne by
them. And I doubt If there Is a man In
this audience who has not, among the be
longings of his family or the family of his
father, some of that old bank paper as a
reminder of what they lost. (A voice "I have
?10 at home myself.")
I cannot imagine any Interest that can be
permanently subserved by having poor
money. The bare suggestion of such a propo
sition to a man of reason meets its instant
rejection. You will remember that from 1562
to 1879, we did business with paper money
exclusively we had neither gold nor silver,
and you will remember that gold was con
stantly at a premium, ranging from 40 to 100
per ee,nt. Then when a man wanted to bor
row money he had to pay a higher rate ot
interest than he has had to pay since 1879 on
a gold basis. (Applause.) When we were
doing business with a depreciated paper
money, interest was very much higher to
the borrower and to the debtor than it ia
now. I can recall, when, here in Ohio the
ruling rate of interest for that paper money
was 10 per cent annually, and often 1 per
cent a roorth or 12 per cent a year. Do you
remember that, men of Indiana? In the days
of greenback currency you paid from 10 "to
12 per cent for your money. The ruling rate
here in Ohio for what some people are pleased
to call a "two-hundred-cent dollar" is 6 or 7
per cent today. It may run as high as 8, and
possibly that has been the ruling rate during
the last two or three years, but that is be
cause this distrust has fallen upon the coun
try, and men who have money will not part
with it and take chances without a higher
rate of Interest.
Money can now be borrowed at a lower rate
ot interest than it could have been borrowed
at any time from the days of 1860 to the days
of resumption. What more healthful sign
than this fact that a dollar sound the world
over can be borrowed at a lers rate than ever
before. That money Is hard to get Is not
because it is scar?e, but because those who
have it keep It, fearing to loan It because
of the unsettled business condition of the
country. Money today is idle because it can
not be profitably and rarely invested by those
who have it. It is neither a lack of volume
of our money nor the quality of the money
that Is our trouble, but a lack of confidence
in the steadiness and stability of business.
The threat of free silver la driving our
money into hiding today: the way to bring
It out is to restore confidence, and how will
you restore confidence? There is only one
way. It is to defeat through the ballot the
party that destroyed confidence.
The way to restore prosperity la to defeat
through the ballot those who have destroyed
prosperity. We cannot restore the business
of the country so long as we do so much of
our business abroad. Let us bring it back
home asrain for our people and our own
labor. We do not believe that the way to
restore confidence is through the mints of
the United States. We can only restore con
fidence and prosperity, not through a debased
currency, but throueh a policy that will re
store the wasted revenues to the public treas
ury and rekindle the fires In American work
shops. I thank you, my fellow citizens of
Muneie, more than I can find words to ex
press, for the compliment and courtesy and
honor of this call. You have come a great
distance and I appreciate your coming, be
cause it i 3 an assurance to me that you be
lieve that the success of the Republican
cause will be for the welfare and prosperity
of the people of the country. I will be very
glad to meet and greet each one of you

MADISON. Wls., Sept. 23— The coterie
of soldier-missionaries who are making

interest of the gold standard, Generals
Sickles, Sigel, Howard, Gov. Alger and
Corporal Tanner, arrived at Madison
this morning: and addressed an audi

building at 10:30. Upon arrival at 9 a.
m., they were given an informal re
ception by Gov. Upham, at the execu

crush that all did not have the op
portunity to shake hands with them
before the hour for speaking arrived.
At 10, a procession was formed fur
the march to the armory, a mile away,
and notwithstanding the early hour,
the parade was a mile in length.
The speakers rode in a carriage, ac
companied by Gov. Upham and mem
bers of the reception committee, and
escorted by 200 soldier veterans,
marching on foot, followed by the
Sound Money club of the Fuller &
Johnson and Giaholt manufacturing

SENATOR HILL SATISFIED.
Result In New York Was Just What
NEW TOYRK, Sept. 23— There is a
difference of opinion among members of
the state democratic committee as to
the significance of the resolution
adopted at last, night's meeting, cre
ating a con mittee of five to visit Mr.
Thacher, the nominee for governor.
Norton Chase, Mr. Thacher's friend
and sponser, said:
"The text of the resolution has been
misquoted. It simply called for the
committee to go to Albany and notify
Mayor Thacher of his nuinination. It
is not a pumping committee in any
sense of the word."
Norman E. Mack and State Com
mitteeman Smith, of Buffalo, were
asked what their views were. Mr.
Smith, who voted on the resolution,
"It was clearly the intent of the
resolution, and it was so stated, that
the committee gp to Albany and get a
clear statement of Mr. Thacher's atti
tude towards the Chicago platform. It
was with that understanding that we
voted, and the fact that the committee
is to go on Friday and report back on
Monday night, is sufficient proof of
that. If somebody has juggled with
the thing since we passed it, why we
will find out on Monday."
Chairman Dan forth said that it was
not true, as stated in a local paper, I
that Mr. Hill had said that he would
rather see the democratic party in h— l j
than on the Chicago platform, and Mr.
Hill corroborated this denial
Senator David B. Hill said to an
Associated Press reporter today:
"The final outcome of the meeting of i
the state committee last night was
a victory for those who are anxious to
preserve our state organization, no
matter what the divisions may be
upon national issues. It was a victory
for those who do not believe that a
man is not a good party man unless he
swallows everything or cannot stand
upon a platform unless he believes in
every statement in it unqualifiedly.
The stories this morning to the effect
that the resolution finally adopted was
for the purpose of sending a commit
tee to see Mr. Thacher as to his views
is unqualifiedly false. The resolution
adopted was the usual one, and merely
asks that a committee be appointed to
tell M. Thacher that he is the nominee
of the party. No qualifications of any
kind are Included. Mr. Grady offered
a resolution as a substitute, for Mr. |
Shea's and which read:
'• 'Resolved, That a committee of
five be appointed to wait upon John
Boyd Thacher, and request his accept
ance of the nomination of governor
upon an unqualified endorsement of the
"I pointed out that such a resolution
was impossible, and when the debate
had progressed far enough a substitute
was Introduced, which read:
" 'Resolved, That a committee of five
be appointed to notify the candidates
on the state ticket of their nomination,
and that such committee report back
to the state committtee at a meeting
to be held Monday, Sept. 28, the result
of its action.'
"Now." said Senator Hill, "that
means just what it says, and It took
the place of all the other resolutions.
Under it the committee has no power
to project its views at Mr. Thacher.
but merely to announce to him his
nomination. He will do the talking."
Senator Hill smiled a satisfied smile
The clerk and secretary of the com
mittee later verified the text of the
resolution as given by Senator Hill.
Therp were only two votes against it,
, and one (Senator Grady) not voting.
While the indications are that Sen
ator Httl has thus far controlled the
action of the state committee, it is
possibler that there may be trouble at
the meeting next Monday unless by
that ttetp Mr. Thacher shall have made
his position clear.

Special to the Globe.
JAMESTOWN, N. D., Sept. 23.— The
financial condition of North Dakota is
not improving, rather the reverse, not
withstanding the administration's re
trenchments by means of the public
schools of the state— the normals and
university. The preceedi»#-admlnis
tration was put "in the hole" abdut
$100,000 by an extravagant legislature.
This deficit, instead of being- diminish
ed, as popularly supposed, has "been
increased until there are . now about
$145,000 worth of warrants out stand
The last legislature— Republican by
a large majority— without constitution
al right, passed a bill authorizing
Treasurer Nichols to isstie $80,000 of
warrants to pay the expanses of the
legislature and $130,000 of funding war
rants to pay unpaid bills. The state
was then up to the constitutional debt j
limit. From the statements of Treas- y
urer Nichols for August and January
it is found that not only this $210,000
worth of warrants was issued and sold j
but another lot of $20,090, within the \
post six months, and without authority |
of law, was also issued and sold. This
makes a total of $230,000 of funding
warrants issued by* the pre*nt admin
istration, and the same reports of the
state treasurer show that but $85,000 j
of this amount has been paid. It is I
strange that the state is not in bettei |
financial condition when it is consider
ed North Dakota cut itself loose from
all expenses connected with its two
normal schools and its university, not
to mention bounties formerly paid upon
forest timber, wolves, etc. As there ■
was but $1,568.93 in the general fund j
July Ist, it is not probable the indebet- j
edness will be materially reduced be- j
fore November Ist, when the last war
rants fall due. The actual diflciency |
in the state's general fund December
Ist, 1894, as shown by the auditor's
report, was $75,036.11 and January Ist,
1895 was $121,036. This latter difici
ency was reduced by $18 000 a few days
later. Today- the deficiency is $145,000.
The treasurer's report also shows that
Jan. 1 there was in the permanent
school fund awaiting investments $17,
--988.54, and in July, $104,625.32. The first
sum has been lying idle in the treasury
since the present administration began
operations, and Treasurer re- j
port also shows that the present board i
of university and school lands, of which
Miss Emma F. Bates, the state superin
tendent of public Instruction is a mem
ber, has bought but $1,450 of bonds for
investment of its permanent school
fund, notwithstanding the treasury con
tains over $100,000 awaiting investment.
The last Republican board paid from
the school fund ov«r $7,000 in premiums
to a bond broker. There are plenty j
of school boards in North Dakota that
would be pleased to place school dis
trict bonds with the state at 6 per cent
interest. The last board found go diffi
culty in placing its money as fast as it
came into the state treasury, and as
no bonds have been bought by the
present board since they went into of
fice it shows willful neglect ot the
school funds of the state,
LAST RITES FOR BISHOP MARTY.

Seven years ago today when this city

Boen's object in the matter is simply
to create notoriety for himself.

PRICE TWO CENTS-j^^f
'THE GRIME OF 73"
SIGNED LETTER PROM JOHN SIIER
BAN REPLYING TO ATTACKS
TRUTH OF THE INCIDENT.
THE BILL WHEN PENDING WAS
GIVEN THE WIDEST POSSIBLE
SILVER ALMOST DE3IONITIZED.
NO One Wanted to Have Dollars
Coined and No One Opposed
CINCINNATI, 0., Sept. 23.— A local
paper publishes a signed article from
Senator John Sherman dated at Mans
field, in which he replies to Mr. Bryan
and others on the '"crime of '73." Sen
ator Sherman says that many pages of
the congressional record show indisput
able proof that the clause in the act
of 1873, stopping the coinage of the sil
ver dollar, was not surreptitiously and
clandestinely passed through congress.
The senator reviews the history of that
legislation, showing that there was an
unusually long agitation, not only in
both branches of congress, but also In
the committee of both houses and also
in the treasury department before the
bill was prepared.
The senator says: "I have never been
able to see what motive could have ex
isted for secrecy in this matter. On
April 25, 1870, when the bill was sent
to the committee on finance by the
secretary of the treasury the silver dol
lar was worth $1.13 In the markets of
the world. Germany had not yet sold
her silver or adopted the gold standard.
There was no indication whatever of
the fall of silver, and no one could
foresee that it was destined to rapidly
decline in price. No one asked to have
the dollar coined, and no one was op
posed to the discontinuance."
The senator refers to the frequent
messages between the treasury depart
ment and the committees, and the un
usually large number of «oples of (he
reports on the bill and the bill itsef
that were ordered printed for distri
bution. The bill was studied by many
men outside of congress durin? th-i
three years or more of its considera
tion and many of these financiers were
given hearings on thi3 bill before the
committee. The secretary of the treas
ury in his annual reports of '70, '71 and
'72 called the special attention of con
gress to this bill. In his report of 1872
the secretary of the treasury said: "I
suggest such alteration as will pro
hibit the coinage of the silver dollar
for circulation in this country," lwell
ing upon his reasons therefor at length
This bill came to congress April 25,
1870, and became a law Feb. 12, ]573
nearly three years after its Introduction
and during which time it was* con
stantly before the public. The senator
concludes his article thus:
"There was not only nothing secret
or surreptitious in the passtge of the
act of 1873, but every step accompany
ing Its origin, introduction, considera
tion and passage received as much
publicity as could be given to a bill
But the silver dollar was out of circu
lation long before the law of 1873 was
enacted. It was a thing of the past
lost to sight; conceived by Hamilton in
1792, suspended by Jefferson in 1806;
practically demonetized by Benton and
the men of 1834 under Andrew Jack
son; ignored by two generations, ex
cept as a convenience for the exporta
tion of silver bullion, and called back
to the mind of the present generation
only because silver has fallen in price
and is deemed more valuable as coin
than as bullion. Never was a more
unjust or unwarrantable charge made
than that the act of 1873 was passed
secretly, by stealth, and .with the ob
ject of concealing any part of it from

to what assistance the federal author
ities can render In case of emergency

sentative in suppressing riot in that
city and district. Gen. Brooks is spe
cifically instructed to permit no inter
ference from any source whatever, and
to act with or without the co-operation
of the local authorities. Lieut. Byram.
the United States officer attached to
the governor's staff, was with him
wlien the telegram was being drawn
up, and on being asked if It gave Gen.
Brooks military power sufficient to en
force martial law, replied that it did
practically amount to martial law.
No further violence has been reported
at Leadville, but as it is known that
more than 500 new model Winchesters
are in possession of the rioters, as well
as large supplies of dynamite, grave
fears are entertained by both the citi
zens and the military. To give Gen.
Brooks the full Bupport of the entire
state military force, Gov. Mclntyre has
sent orders to the two Second regiment
companies held in reserve, one at Lake
City and the other at Monte Vista, to

officers and men that no human ef
forts could save them. Th*j majority
of the crew were gathered aft, where
commander, Lieut. Capt. Braun and
the officers of the watch and Lieut.
Prasse were standing on the bridge.
At the moment of the gravest danger,
the captain gathered the doomod crew
about him, and caMed ypon them to
give three cheers for the emperor.
They were given with a will, and,
waving their hats at the flag that
floated over them, the brave sailors
showed their fidelity to the father
land and took a farewell of life. While
the cheering was going on, the ship
broke in two near the foremast. The
masts toppled and fell, and as they
went down, they crashed through the
bridge and swept several of the men
into the sea with their tangle of rin

Raehn requested the men to join in
ringing the national anthem. Th«?y
grasped each others hands and with
their voices mingling with tho howling
of the storm they went down to death
in the sea.
