Republican Presidential Nom
GREAT GATHERING AT CANTON
Candidate Strongly Approves
Is Entirely to
THE AWFUL MINE DISASTER.
Distressing Scene at
New Source of Dread Is De
veloped. Cahto. Jane 39 The members
of the committee appointed by the
SL Louis contention to notify ex
Got. McKlnloy of his nomination tot
the presidency arrived here from
Cleveland at 11:40 this morning on
a special train. They were met at
the station by a reception committee
who escorted them to carriages
which formed part of the parade of
citisens, troops, cavalry, G. A. B.,
etc., to McKlolejr's home. A large
crowd of people had assembled about
she residence, and the open space re
served for the committee and party
was soon filled after they had been
seated. Just as the crowd quieted
down Gov. McKinley stepped for
ward on the porch and was greeted
with an ovation, cheer after cheer
rising from the crowd. Senator
Thurston then stepped upon the
porch and in his fiery eloquence de
livered the official notification. He
was given enthnsiastio applause and
was frequently interrupted with
cheers. At 13:20 Got. McKinley
arose to respond and the cheering
was renewed. When quiet was re
stored, and after thanking the party
through the committee he said in
part: "The qiostions to be settled
In the contest this year are
of as serious importance as
any great government problems that
have confronted us in the past quar
ter or a century. They command
settlement free from partisan preiu
dlee beneficial to ourselves, befitting
the honor and grandeur of the repub
lic. Our domestie trade must be
won back and our idle workingmen
employed at American wages: our
foreign trade, cut off by adverse na
tional legislation, must be recpaned
Protection and reciprocity should
again command the earnest encour
agement of the government. The
income of the government thould
equalise the necessary and proper
eipenditares. The national .credit
mast, and will, be upheld and
strengthened. The American people
bold the financial honor of our rov
erament as sacred as our flag. They
hold its preservation above party
realty. The money of the United
States of every kind, paper, silver
and gold, must be as good ae the
best la the world. It must not only
be current at fall face value at home,
but must be counted at par In every
commercial center of the globe. The
dollar paid the farmer,, wage earner.
or pensioner must continue forever
equal in purchasing and debt paying
power to ine aouar paid any govern
meat creditor. The platform adopted
oy me republican national conven
tion has my unqualified approval.
It Is a matter of gratification to me
that its declaration of principles is
so direct, clear and emphatic."
When . Msj. McKinley concluded.
the visitors were presented Individ
uslly to Got. and Mrs. McKinley,
who shook each one's hands. Hon
Merk Hanna presided over the cere
monv. The compaay then ad
journed to ft tent oa the rear of the

lunch was served.
