INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 14. Fate seemed
to be against Governor McKinley yester
day. The day set for the big Elwood cele
bration proved the most disagreeable of
the season. A drizzle that set in at mid
night developed into a driving rain storm
by daylight and It poured incessantly
until after 2 o'clock. Notwithstanding
tbe downpour the train bearing McKinley
and Governor Chase from this city car
ried about a thousand excursionists and
fairly large crowds greeted the travelers
at the towns on the way. When they ar
rived at Elwood at noon they found that
eight or nine thousand from other towns
in the state had also braved the Btorm to
see the works of the American Tin-plate
company and hear the apostle of protec
Illustration of Protection.
At 1:30 o'clock about 2,000 people stood
in the rain in front of the Opera house
and listened to three-minute addresses by
Governors McKinley and Chase, who were
themselves without shelter. Later as
many people aa could be packed into the
Opera House listened to a more lengthy
address by Governor McKinley, devoted
entirely to the tariff issue. He said many
new things in defense of his bill, compli
mented Indiana upon the rapid growth of
ber industries in the past six years and
pointed to Ellwood, now a town of 12,000
people, from what three years ago was a
Yillatce of 600, as a striking example
of what the protective policy is doing for
Two Wn of Raisins; Money.
. Tbe question of the tariff, ha said, was a
business one and addressed itself very lit
tle to tbe sentiment or imagination of the
people. There bad to be a tariff in order
to get money to meet tbe obligations of
the government. It cost the government
$ 1,000,000 every twenty-four hours to meet
its expenses. There were two ways of
raising this enormous sum of money by
direct taxation or indirect or tariff taxa
tion. The speaker was certain that the
people were not in favor of direct taxation.
They bad had enou ch of that in the past.
Tariff for Revenue Defined.
' Tariff for revenue did nothing but raise
revenue. It excluded all other considera
tions. It took no heed of the needs of the
people. It levied its tariff on foreign goods
simply and purely to raise revenue for the
public treasury. Seizing a pitcher from
the desk he tapped it with his fingers and
said, with an airof pride: "There is a tariff
on this pitcher of 60 per cent.; that is the
result of the Republican protective tariff.
It was put there to build np the pottery
industry of this country, which, I am glad
to say, has been successful. I put that
HOME AND FOREIGN PRODUCTS.
Difference of the Two Policies as to the
Taxation of the Same,
"The Democratic tariff pnts a tariff on
foreign products that do not compete with
our home products. We put a tariff on
products that compete with us. The
things we can't produce go free to tbe
American people. A tariff put on a for
eign product is always paid by the' con
sumer. An why? Because foreigners
control the market on anything we can
not raise ourself." Governor McKinley
contended that there was not an article of
glass, of irqn, or of steel that bad not
been cheapened to the American consumer
by domestic competition, and this had all
been made possible by a Republican pro
Not a Borden, bat a Blessing.
It had been said that a protective tariff
was a burden. "There Is not a man in
Indiana," exclaimed the speaker, "who
knows from actual suffering that there is
such a thing as protective tariff. On the
contrary, there is not a man or woman in
the state who doesn't know that he or
she is enjoying its blessings. It is the
business of the Democrats to show that
you are suffering that you are borne
down by Republican tari ff taxation. If it
be such a burden it must make itself
manifest; it must show itself."
"The Democrats," he said, "had been
saying that we could not make tin-plate.
Years ago they pooh-poohed the idea that
we could make steel rails, glass and silk
wares. Under a protective tariff all these
things have been accomplished."
Shown Throufh the Mills.
Aside from the tin-plate plant Elwood
bas one of the largest glass works in the
country, aud it happens that all the indus
tries of the town are of the protected class.
He predicted prosperity for the t.n mill,
and prophesied that it would help to make
American tin cheaper than imported tin
ever was.' After the speech he was taken
through the works before leaving for home
at 4 p. m. Tbe company, of which A. L.
Cougar is president, has six mills, occupy
ing three large buildings, in operation,
employing 800 men. It produces about six
carloads of plates per wtek.
All Decorated with Tin.
The crowds on the strsets and the audi
ence were decorated in all sorts of ways
with tin American tin. There were tin
cups and tin pans and tin plates, and
nearly everything else that conld lie ham
mered out of tin. These souvenirs were
struDg to watch chain", pinned upon coats,
and carried upon sticks. Everybody wore
some sort of a tin label even the women.

VlSALIA. CaL. Sept. 14. The man hunt
ia Tulare and Fresno counties after the
fugitive train robbers, Evans and Sontag,
which cost one life at the outset, reached a
bloody climax yesterday, when three men
were killed and one badly wounded by the
desperate bandits. Chris Evans, John
Sontag, and George Sontag robbed the
Southern Pacific train near Coll is, Fresno
county, Aug. 4, and got away with about
12,500 in gold aud silver coin. Three days
later the detectives secured clews that led
them to Evans' house in Visalia, though
they did not then suspect Evans. Their
evidence pointed to the two Son tags, who
had just come from Manketo, Minn.
One Murder on Their Hands.
George Sontag was secured by strategem,
but when the officers went to the house
to get his trunk Evans and John Sontag
opened Cre and drove them away, badly
wounding Deputy Witty. Then followed
one of tbe most remarkable chases on rec
ord. The robbers actually returned to
their own house late at night and being
surprised killed young Oscar Beaver, who
was on guard. They escaped to the mount
ains and thouuh they have been seen since
at several places there has been no fight
with them until yesterday. Sunday, Sept.
4th, they stole a horse and buggy from
Supervisor Ellis, who lives near Visalia.
Two days after they left the stolen outfit
at Howell's ranch, savins they were going
to Samson's fiat, where Evans Las a mine
Narrow Escape from Capture.
Last Suuday the robbers narrowly es
caped capture by a posse beaded by an
Arizona railroad detective named Vic
Wilson, who had been on their trail for
two weeks. Wilson came upon a little
camp in a secluded part of Kings river
and was amazed to find the bugzy
robes and blankets stolen from Ellis'
house a week before. This place is forty
miles from Visalia. It was evident that
the robbers Lad heard the posse coming,
but had no time to remove traces of their
presence. Of course this d Iscovery great ly
stimulated Wilson's party and they felt
sure of tbe $2,000 reward offered for the
Forgot Old Evans Shotgun.
They reckoned without old Evans' shot
gun, however. Wilson and his men were
accompanied by two Apache scouts, who
had tracked Evans and Sontag toSansom's
fiat. Just as the party arrived in front of
Rancher Young's house yesterday morn
ing the door was thrown open and Evans
and Sontag appeared with shotguns on
their shoulders. They delivered a broad
side from both barrels before the officers
could draw weapons. Then the bandits
seized Winchesters, and continued to fire
into the posse. The Apache scouts jumped
behind stones before the firing began and'
escaped unhurt. ll
DEADLY RAIN OF BUCKSHOT.
Three Men Killed the First Fusillade,
One Severely Woaaded.
At the first fire Vic Wilson, the leader;
United States Marshal McGinnis, of Mo
desto, and Dickalson fell dead from their
saddles, riddled with buckshot. Al Whit
ty. a brother of tbe deputy who was so
badly wonnded by Evans in Visalia, was
severely wounded, and the horse of Con
stable Warren Hill was shot from under
him. Tbe news came in by telephone and
the operator said that after tbe killing
Sontag and Evans seized the horses of tbe
murdered officers and escaped, no one
daring to molest them.
Will Shoot Them on Sight.
The news of the killing created great
excitement here and a large posse left at
once for Sansom's flat, headed by Sheriffs
Hensley and Kay and Detective Pickey.
The people of Samson's flat and vicinity
are great ly excited over tbe murders aud
have agreed to help the officers shoot the
bandits on sight. Without the aid of the
miners and the sheep herders the fugitives
Wilson Was a Oood Sleuth.
Wilson, who was shot down in this cow
ardly way, was one of the best trailers of
criminals on this coast. He was fearless
and very expert in the use of weapons. If
he had not been surprised the bandits
would have borne some marks of his gun.

ST. Peters BURG, Sept. 14. Although
every avenue of exit is closed to Russian
emigrants, and especially to Russian Jews,
by Germany, Austria and Rou mania, the
czar through his ministry has issued ad
ditional and stringent orders for the ex
pulsion from Russia of all Jews without a
permanent domicile. Many thousands,
owing to tbe wholesale removals recently,
are included in that designation. Should
the orders be carried out the Germans and
Austrians are prepared to drive the vie
tims back into Russia, only to see them
again driven toward the frontier by the
cossack guards on the boundary.
