Leatler Hoots Instead of Clieern Mrs.
LraM Ieellnen to Talk.
Macon, Gil, Sept. 23. Gen. "Weaver, the
Populist candidate for president arrived
here from Columbus yesterday, momiiiK.
Dnrinjj his whole canvass in the state he
has leen followed around by a Pulask,
Tenn., newspaiennan who charges him
with financial skulldugtrery when he was
in command of Union t roops at that place.
At the Columbus meeting there were only
a half dozen third party men present.
Weaver spoke only a few minutes and did
not reply to the Pulaski, Tenn., charpes.
Mrs. I-rf-ase. in referring to them, said:
"These Democratic statesmen in Georgia
have sent out the lyin representative of a
lying newspaper to rake up these old lies."
Hail HU Affidavits Along.
The newspaper man who wrote them
was there aK'iin. He rushed to the front of
the stage with his affidavits and said:
'Here are the affidavits to prove those
charpes. Disprove them if you can." The
crowd, in which there was a numler of
Democrats, applauded and Weaver retired.
He says the Georgia jeople are mighty
grind folks, but when you come as a politi
cal enemy of the majority there's no fun in
St. When he reached here he attempted tc
address a crowd of third partyites and
hoodlums from the balcony of the Hotel
Ijtnier, but the hoodlums would not heat
him and the third party was toe weak to
crush out the opposition.
The Meeting at Macon.
The party was met on its arrival here by
a committee and escorted at once to the
hotel. A meeting of the young Men's
Democratic club had been called for 8
o'clock at the court house and was attend
ed by not let's than 1,(NI0 Democrats.
Kinging Democratic speeches were deliv
ered by Hon. Dupont Gerry, Hon. John
L. Hardeman. Hon. Charles L. Bartlett,
and others. Meanwhile the negro brass
band, hired by the third party, had gath
ered a crowd on the street opposite the ho
tel. Weaver was introdu.ied by W. A.
Poo, the third party candidate from this
district for the senate.
The Iemoerat Appear.
.During the introduction some hoodlums
threw a septic, and the act nearly precipi
tated a fight. When Weaver advanced ht
was hooted continuously, and at hist got
angry and retired. Just at this moment
the Democratic meeting, strong,
turned out and marched behind their hand
to the tune of "Dixie" amid the wildest en
thusiasm. After this it was impossible foi
any one to get a hearing except Hon. Du
pont Guerry,who got quiet for Mrs. Lease,
but that lady declined to speak.
POLITICAL FIELD NOTES.
Democratic National Committee Kx plain
About State Hanks.
New York, Sept. 33. The Democratic
national committee has issued a text book
which among other political matter con
tains an explanation of the meaning of the
platform plank demanding repeal of the
tax on state liank issues. The explanation
says that the issue is not joined on the ex
cellence of the national banking system
and its services in the past, but whether it
can be perpetuated and what shall he sub
stituted for it. The system is disapiearing,
Jpe book says, and the rej)eal of the tax
would open the way for another system
flexible and responsi hie.

THE MILLS IN BAD SHAPE.
What Frick Found During a Visit to
Homestead, Pa., Sept. 23. Manager
Frick visited the mills here yesterday, and
did not find everything in a satisfactory
condition. That is certain. He would not,
however, make known his conclusions, or
have anything to say to representatives of
the press about the situation of affairs le
hind the big fence, from which newspaper
men are carefully excluded, and the mill
officials refuse to talk for the public's in
formation. However, Frick found the
twenty-three-inch mill not running, owing
to its bad condition. The big 119-inch mill
is idle, owing to costly breakage of lioth
shears and rolls. The new Iteam bill, as
well as one of the open-hearth mills, was
barely in operation and doing very little.
The Water Causes Sickness.
Frick also found much sickness among
the non-union workmen, attributable to
bad water. He also found the numlier of
workmen greatly reduced until now there
are not more than 1,200 workmen at his
command. Frick was accompanied on his
tour of investigation by Julian Kennedy,
formerly the suierintendenx of the Home
stead plant. Kennedy is now one of the
owners of the Apollo Iron works, and
stands very high in the estimation of the
Carnegie company, with which he has not
for some time been connected in any man
ner. His presence at this time is regarded
as very significant.
KaUnor That Potter Is to Go.
In fact it is currently rumored that Ken
nedy will very soon succeed Superintendent
Potter, with whose conduct of the present
labor troubles, rumor says, the Carnegie
people are very much dissatisfied. Ken
nedy is also held in high regard by the
former employes at Homestead and it is
believed that his engagement by the com
pany would certainly bring aliout an early
termination of the present difficulties.
