' and Good H amor Pre .ails The Debate
! Ada, O., Oct. ..Thirty thousand peo
! tried to hear ths joint debate here yes
terday between Governor Campbell and
Major McKinley. It is a meeting long to
e remembered, and was noticeable for
the perfect good humor of everybody pres-
at. There was not the slightest disorder,
and although the two champions hara
tnered each other's political views with
great vigor, in all matters personal the
greatest courtesy and good will prevailed.
The town of Ada was in gala attire in
onor of the great event, and not only did
very front window present a likeness of
either McKinley or Campbell, but from
the very limbs of the trees were suspended
above streets the portraits of the distin
guished Ohioaos. Flags and banners and
bantings there were without number, and
ai generous was the friendly rivalry in
decorations displayed by Democrats and
Republicans that tbe very horizon was
obscured by the familiar lines of the na
The Non-Partisan Deeeration.
: There were a number of arches dedi
cated to one party or the other, bat the
most prominent structure of the kind was
of a non-partisan character, spanned the
principal street, and bore on its front the
legend: Welcome to the Leaders." The
people gathered here from Cincinnati,
riodlay, Toledo, Canton, and there were
many visitors from Indiana and a few
from Illinois. Tin horns were numerous
and as discordant as usual, but as they
'were made of American tin they were a
McKinley object lesson. Many of the
marching clubs carried tin canes, also
made of the American product. The
Democrats offset this by badges on which
were words charging that wool bad
dropped to 24 cents on account of the Mc
Kinley tariff, and the inconsistencies and
other faults of the McKinley bill as
viewed by the Democrats were set forth on
Arrival of Major McKinley.
' At 11:15 a special train bearing Major
McKinley, Senator Humphreys and oth
ers rolled into the Station and cbeer after
cheer arose from the crowd as the Napo
leonic features of the great exponent of
protection were recognized by the multi
tude. The major bowed smilingly to the
crowd and quickly entering a carriage
was driven to the residence of Professor
Lehr, under the escort of various march
ing clubs, f jllowed by an exultant brass
The Campbell Has Come.
Promptly at 12:30 o'clock a Hocking
Valley train bearing about 1,000 cheering
Democrats and Republicans hove in sight,
and attached to the rear was the special
car "Buckeye" containing Governor Camp
bell, Dr. Norton; Chairman Nortion, of
the state central committee; Lieutenant
Governor Marquis and a few other promi
nent Democrats. A repetition of the en
thusiastic ovation extended to Major Mc
Kinley was the reception tendered to Gov
An Armistice at Laaeh.
The governor was rapidly driven to the
residence of Professor Lehr, where he
met Major McKinley, and they took
lunch with Professor Lehr and a few per
sonal friends. For a brief hour politics
and the great struggle which is being
waged for partisan supremacy in the
Buckeye state were forgotton, and each of
these two gentlemen was acknowledged
by his opponent to be a "prince of good
(allows. " Professor Lehr was not the
least happy of the people here. It was he
who proposed the famous meeting, and
the success thereof ornamented the pro
lessor's face with a smile that could be
seen from behind him.
THE GOVERNOR'S OPENING.
Brief Synopsis of What Was Said for
, Everything had been arranged on a
(rand scale at the place where the debate
came off. A grand stand which accom
modated 2,000 persons bad been built and
a speaker's stand elaborately decorated
with bunting. When the two champions
appeared there was a dense mass of hu
manity all around the stand, and many
prominent persons had places on tbe
grand stand. Chairman Van Fleet lost
no time in introducing Governor Camp
bell, who was to open In a speech of an
hour and a half, and when the cheers with
which he was received had subsided he
proceeded to his work.
A Baking for Protection.
' The governor said in the course of his
peach: "The moments at my disposal are
much too few to properly present an in
dictment against that overgrown monster
masquerading in the garb of the protec
tion and subsisting upon the wageworker.
In the days of tbe French revolution
Mme. Roland protested against the crimes
committed in the name of liberty. I pro
test against the crimes committed in tbe
name of protection a protection which
Increases the cost of living to the poor
and produces a reduction of the wages of
working men and women. Our once
prond commerce has been swept from the
seas and abandoned and in its stead we
have the splendid palaces of the protected
manufacturer which crowd our hills,
while down in the valleys the Italian and
Bohemian are usurping the rights and
privileges of the American workingman,
whose family crouches in the corner of
tbelr hovel crying for bread.
Draws a Pitiable Picture.
"The wife of the miner starves, that pro
tection may be promoted while the coal
barons are rolling in wealth. There are
women in our great cities trying to main
tain life on 18 cents a day that our infant
industries may be protected." The gov
ernor quoted from The American Econo
mist to show that the number of people in
the Unit d States who owned their own
homes had fallen from five-eighths to one
eighth in twenty-five years. Continuing
the governor said: "In 1850 the capitalists
of this country owned S7 per cent, of our
wealth. To-day they own more than one
half. Do they deserve better at the hands
of Providence than the farmer, tbe wage
worker, or tbe preacher, the doctor and
the lawyer' Whenever a Democrat points
. these facta, and'they are statistical and
indisputed. the only answer we get is a
tneering allusion to the calamity croaker.
A ssoa from the Failures.
"I will read you an extract from Brad
itreet, whiVa is accepted in this country
as a fair financial journal. He says that
the failures and liabilities in this coun
try have largely increased. The total
number of failures in the United States
for the first nine months of 1881 were
3,888, as compared with 7,538 during a like
-leriod of 1890, an increase of 17 per cent.
Mow, Major McKinley said when he ac
cepted the nomination for congress in lS'J.)
I hat if his bill passed the senate (it had
then passed the bouse) this country would
witness a greater boom than ever known.
I pause to ask him, where is that boom?"
He added that if it were not for tbe big
trops at home and poor crops abroad tbe
rcord of failures would be much worse.
THE MAJOR'S RESPONSE.
He Says Something of Silver and Defends
Bis Tariff Kill.
There was considerable applause when
G.vernor Campbell resumed his seat.
But when Major McKinley arose and
snppedto the front of the platform it
turned into a clyclone. After expressing
tbe pleasure it gave bira to meet Governor
Campbell upon the platform be said:
"I he issues between us and between the
parties for which for the moment we
Ki nd are fixed not by ourselves, but by
thu platform of our respective parties.
There are two of them that I desire to
present to this assembled multitude.
One, the question of silver; the. other, the
qU'stion of taxation. Oq the question of
sih'er the Democratic platform of Ohio
declares without qualification for free and
Insists on a lOO-Cent Dollar.
Tbe Republican party stands opposed
to free and unlimited coinage under pres
ent conditions. It insists t hat it cannot
be done until tbe great nations of the
world, by concurrent action, have fixed a
ratio between gold and silver. Tbe Re
publican party stands for one dollar's
wor:h for one hundred cents, whether it
be t old, silver or paper money. When a
farmer sells wheat lie gives full measure.
When he gets bis pay Ce is entitled to a
full dollar in value. If there is anything
that you have a right to demand of the
government it is that the dollar that is
tues shall be fixed in value to represent a
dollar in every market in every place in
the v ide world,
Advantages of Protection
Referring to the tariff question, Major
McK nley said Governor Campbell's plat
form commits him to a tariff for revenue
only, levied for revenue unmindful of all
other considerations, not caring for tbe
occupations or industries of the people. A
reven ae tariff raised reven ue for the gov
ernment: a protective tariff would do
that. "But a revenue tariff would only
raise revenue, white a protective tariff
Stimulates industries, encourages the skill
and genius of America- citizens. It se
cures to us, as it has done in the last
twenty years, the first rank in the indus
tries, t he mining, tbe agriculture of all
the na .ions of the earth.
The Foreign Producer.
"Tell me why the foreign producer
should be allowed to enjoy the markets of
the American producer. They pay not a
dollar toward your county, your state,
your municipal improvements in any
manner. We can not compel him to
pay a dollar beyond the reach of the law;
tbe federal arm can not touch him. Tbe
only w) y to touch him is to tax. Tbe
governor says tbey don't pay the tax;
that it s the people. Then what are tbe
English making so much fuss about f
Why are tbe Germans making such a
noise about our tarifff"
Our Great Internal Commerce.
McKinley went on to quote a number
Df articl e that are cheaper today than un
der the ( Id order of things, and said that
tbe rebate on raw production for export
bad been in every tariff law since the days
of Washington. The speaker continued
that people talked about our foreign com
merce having left the seas, when the fact
was thai; we had the greatest internal
commercs known to the world, greater
than that of England and a half dozen
European powers. There was deafening
applause as Major McKinley. who had
spoken jest one and a half hours, resumed
G('V. Campbell's Rejoinder.
The shades of evening were beginning
to fall as Governor Campbell proceeded
with his closing remarks. He said he
concurred with McKinley as to the great
ness of this country, but would distribute
that greatness on the just and unjust
alike. G -eat applause, lasting so long
that the speaker had to appeal for silence.
He conten led that tbe major bad spoken
bis full time, but had not pointed oat
why tbe tariff bill raised duties 40 to 00
per cent., I ut had put in most o( his time
calling the Democracy calamity shriekers,
and that therefore those who had their
wages reduced must not grumble.
Remarks on Silver.
Referring to the silver question, the
governor s.tid: "Tbe great trouble about
silver is thst there is not enough of it in
circnlation, and that the working people
don't get their share of it. Major McKin
ley has said that tbe Republican party is
responsible for tbe financial legislation
for tbe past thirty years, and if there are
any 8-cent silver dollars in circulation
the Republican party is responsible for
It." ( Appla se.
Time Called on the Governor.
Time was tailed on tbe governor as he
was reading an extract from a speech in
1883 by Sen-tor Sherman on the wool
question, and the debate ended at 5:30,
having lastela trifle over three hours.
There was a rush of tbe spectators to
shake hands -xith the candidates, and for
a moment tbe platform was in imminent
danger of giving way under the extra
weight. Tbe candidates were hustled off,
and under the escort of a big procession
with a couple of bands, returned to town.
Last night tbsy held an informal recep
tion at Professor Lehr ' residence. They
left town at midnight, Governor Camp
bell going to Ckdumbus and the major to

Disctisbions at the Conference.
Washington", Oct. 9. Some of the min
isters who are here attending the ecumen
ical Methodist conference complain that
they are treated unfairly in public places
on accouut of their color. Hev. J. C. Km
bry, of Philadelphia, in speaking of the
matter s.'iiu: "We partook of the com
munion service with our white brethren
on au (quality, but when we went out to
get our lunch we could not find a restau
rant which would serve us, and we finally
had to go to a railroad d. pot." "If we had
wanted beer," said Bishop Arn.tt, "we
would have had no difficulty in procuring
The llritish Delegates Indignant.
"We u;ht to have had a resolution on
the outrage," said one of ber mj-sty's
subjects to one of the colored delegates
who suffered rejection and tnuiuer. "I'd
leave any hotel or eating house where
they'd treat you so; I'd sleep in the street
before they should have a peuny of my
money." He voiced the unanimous senti
ment t.t the foreign representatives.
Bishop Foster did not care to discuss the
matter at this time, but he remarked to a
reporter: "We feel the iniquity of it."
Friends of tbe colored delegates comment
with a Kood deal of severity on the fact
that hotelkeepers and restaurant proprie
tors failed to make any distinction be
tween men save thit of color.
"Say They Are All Niggers."
"They put them all in a bag, bishops
and criminals, the Lord's annointed aud
tbe gambler, and shake them up and say
they are all niggers," was the comment of
one delegate. Whether the conference
will take any action in the matter or not
will depend on the business committee,
through which all matters not on the pro
gramme must pass. Southern delegates
are not talkative, so no one can prophesy
what they may do in case a resolution of
censure on the hotelkeepers comes up.
Proceedings of the Conference.
Two features of yesterday's session
were the presentation to the American
university of John Wesley's chair aud the
loan to tbe conference of the original lip
worth Bible.which was used in tbe church
the Wesleys attended. "The Present
Status of Methodism in the Eastern Sec
tion" was the subject discussed in tbe
morning and it was shown that Method
ism was increasing in England faster than
tbe population. "Methodism in the West
ern Section" was the subject in the after
noon and it was shown to be flourishing.
SENSATION ON A LINER.

capture by ber reverend but irate parent
attempting to make her way, in com
pany with her lover, to America. When
Mr. Ellis had carried bis daugnter off in
triumph, Mr. Mottram gathered together
his little parcels and dejectedly lefi tbe
ship, followed by tbe jeers and mocking
cheers of his late fellow-passengers, who
swarmed about tbe side of the big steam
er to witness his discomfiture.
One Matter Settled by the Brotherhood
Galesburg. Ills., Oct. 9. At last the
long-drawn trouble with the old board of
trustees of tbe Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen has come to an end, and Grand
Master Wilkinson has been sustained in
tbe course he took in removing
them. Grand Master Wilkinson occu

Lon-dos, Oct. 9 As tbe cold weather
approaches there is a marked increase in
the want aud misery among the working
classes in Berlin. In order to get rid of
the more dangerous and able-bodied they
are given work on tbe &rth sea canal
and other public improvements away
from the city. This cannot be done with
the aged and infirm, and the departures
hardly make an appreciable difference in
tbe number of paupers apparent on every

future time the fulfillment of their hopes.
The prince is said, however, to be unal
terable in his detei mination.
