IsMAXAFOLIS, Sept. 13. Governor Mc
Kinley arrived here hist evening on his
way to El wood, where he speaks at the
tin-plate celebration. Uniformed clubs
and a large concourse of people-met him at
the station and took bim to the Dennison
botel, where an informal reception was
beld. Governor McKinley was called to
the balcony by the insisting cheers of the
crowd, and spoke off-hand. He praised
Harrison's administration as one of the
ablest and most patriotic the country has
Why He Wants Harrison Again.
He continued: "We want Harrison four
years more to veto any free trade bill
passed by a Democratic congress elected
by accident and false prophecy. We want
bim to veto any bill repealing the tax on
state bank notes. We want him to pre
vent free trade and low wages. We want
the laborer to get full wages and we want
those wages worth their face value. Now
we can have free trade on one condition,

Leveling Up and Leveling Down.
'We want free trade when other na
tions can bring their labor and social con
dition up to the standard of ours. When
they pay the same wages we do we will
meet them in the markets of the world
And take care of ourselves. Free trade
means our leveling down to them. Let
them level up to us. That is the spirit of
our fight. The trade maxim Is 'buy where
you can buy the cheapest.' Let me give
you a better, 'buy where you can pay
easiest,' and that is where the highest
wages are paid to labor."
COMMISSIONER PECK'S REPORT.
Xhe Papers on Which It Was Itaaed the
Subject of a Suit.
Kingston, N. Y., Sept. 13. There was a
notable array of counsel and politicians in
Judge Fursmau's special term here yester
day morning when the court opened.
Among those present were E. J. Meegan,
Judge Countryman, and ex-Senator Chase.
By reason of a refusal to comply with the
demand of Democratic leaders, Labor
Commissioner Peck had been summoned
to show cause why a peremptory writ of
mandamus should not issue compelling
bim to display the sources of the figures
now being used as a campaign document
by the Republican leaders. The court
xooni was filled with local and state poli
ticians when the case opened by the read
ing of the affidavit of E. E. Anderson.
Charges Peck With Falsehood.
In bis affidavit Anderson, after reciting
3xim futile attempts to secure copies or see
the original lists from which the report
Jiad been compiled, makes this charge
against the commissioner: "The reason
why an order to show cause is necessary is
that the said summary contains a false
statement made by the commissioner as
follows: 'Almost innumerable inquiries
were made of this bureau by the great
writers upon economic subjects; the lead
ers of thought and discussion in our pul
pits, ou the rostrum and through the pub
lic press, for reliable ilata and statistics
bearing upon this very important subject.
Ai.d it was by reason of this situation, no
less than with a view to establish the
truth or falsity of tLe premises taken by
the two great political pnrties of the coun
try that the undersigned finally decided
to make the subject of the effect of the
tariff on labor and wages one of special in
vestigation. All Papers Open to the Public
"The conclusions stated by the commis
sioner in the said summary ure based
upon the ex parte returns made by per
fcous whose names are unknown aud who
are directly interested in establishing by
such returns a state of facts favorable to
their own interests." Mr. Chase, in behalf
of Anderson, was ready with his brief ar
gument and had read two decisions ren
dered by the attorney general's depart
ment intended to show that the papers in
ruiy state department were open to public
inspection. One of these was written by
Attorney General Tabor and holds that
the figures furnished to the state insur
ance department by insurance companies
are public property and open to public in
spection. The Judge States His Opinion.
Counsel for Peck asked for time to show
that the papers are private and that a
public officer cannot be forced into per
mitting the public to see such papers.
The suit was not begun until Saturday
last and it had been impossible to prepare
the necessary data iu that brief time.
jHdge Fursman said: "I do not believe
that any papers in a public office are pri
vate. A public officer has no right to leave
private papers in his office, but I think
the time is short and the officer should
hare a reasonable time to answer or pre
pare to answer."
Peck Has Created a Turmoil.
Chase asked that the delay be short, as
it was essential that the truth or falsity of
the figures be proved. "This official," said
Chase, "has made grave political issues,
and we shall be in a turmoil until it is de
cided." Judge Fursman set the case down
for the 27ih inst, at a speciel term in Al
bany in which he will preside.

jerfnin action that will guarautee us pro
tection. We have ascertained that we
:annot get a free ballot and a fair count
without federal snpervision, and the ex
ecutive committee now in session has al
ready called for marshals and federal

mitteemen otherwise were mum as to
what was done at the meeting.

farmers riding on the forward part of the
