lie is the most prominent member of
the clan in this country and was heartily
received by his fellow-clansmen, headed
fcy their chief, Dr. L. D. McKinley, of To
Iek.i. There were addresses at t .ie re
union and Governor McKinlcy's response
was n most eloquent one. Tlie meeting
yesterday was the first meeting of the Clan
McKinley since its breaking up in Scot
land directly after the treat battle of Cul
loden. fought, on April 10, 1T4'"., in which
the clan bore a conspicuous part. Scottish
history is silent as to any' special acts of
the t'lati McKinley. Outside of the men
tion of the name in the old manuscripts
there is nothing uutil the time of Uobert
Hums, the poet, when the name occurs in
"The Ordination'' and "Tarn Smpon
Kleiry.' The McKinley mentioned is
buried not far from the. tomb of Burtis
alongside that of Tarn Sampson.

But to return to O'u'o. Today is her j
day, although nhe began making her ap-!
jiearances two days ago. Governor Mc
Kinley having dune his duty at the meet-1
ing of his clan was the central figure in
the Ohio festivities. He, with Mrs. Mc
Kinley and his staff, were warmly wel
comed by Chicago people as soon a.s they
arrived and many politicians got a few
words with hini ns to "how things were
jrninp." At the fair erounds today the
Third and Fourteenth Ohio regiments are
the governor's escort. They have their
bands along and both are noted in Ohio
for the music they make, and a battery of
Ohio artillery whs ready to punctuate
the music. These organizations escorting
the governor entered t he groun. is at 11a.
ui. today and made a "brave show."
I'roffrt&mnie of Kxercises.
The parade marched straight for the
Ohio building, around which was massed
a dense t hrong which went wild when th
bead of the procession came in sight, and
wilder when McKinley could lie seen. The
exercises took place in front of the Buck
eye building, anil began nt noon. Speeches
were made by liovernor McKinley, ex-Governor
Campbell, Get era! Brinkerhoff. of
Mansfield, O., and Judge Thoman, a for
mer resident of Ohio, now of Chicago. In
terspersed between thespeerhes was music.
The afternoon will be devoted to receptions

The Michigan building was brilliantly
ilium nated last night on the occasion of
a ball given in honor of the governor and
Mrs. Bu ll, the state officials at the fair
and the military men who accompanied
the governor ou his visit to the White
City. The fairest women of the state as
sembled on the floor with their escorts to
be presented to the governor, who was
surrounded by his staff, and to participate
iu the dance. Today the wolverines are
continuing their celebration and taking
in the fair with great industry and persever
ance. The Kansans also are continuing. This
moruitig Governor Levelling and his staff
made "grills" ou each of the state build
ings and fonnd each state "at home."
From ID to 12 a. m. there were concerts in
th! state buiidiug and Festival hall by
Kansas talent. During the afternoon and
evening there will be a military parade,

FIRE AMONG TELEGRAPH WIRES.
Shut Off Connection by AVf.tern t'eion
Washington, Sept. 14. Fire broke out
in the Corcoran building in this city which
greatly damaged the v ires of the Western
Union Telegraph company, whose offices
are located on the upper f! ors of the build
ing, and shut off all telegraphic communi
cation of the city by that company. The
fire originated in the cupola on the roof,
directly above the operating room, where
the wires were strung to connect with the
switchboard. The ca ise was probably an
electric light wire. ALiout 4 K) wires were
burned and cut out by the firemen during
Considerable damage was also done by
water, which thoroughly saturated the
insulated wires, rendering them totally
useless until they b.-c.inie dry. The op
erating room was tlooc ed with water, but
aside from wettiDg th desks, instruments
and papers did no seri his damage. None
of the switchboards suffered from the fire.
The damage done aside from the delav
of business is roughly estimated at be
tween $4(o and .19o. Messages and other
telegraphic mutterarc being received at the
business office subject te delay.

Washington, Sept. ;4. There is not the
least sign of a let-up in the debate on thn
repeal bill in the seni te. Voorhees with
words of honey tried to get the silver men
to discuss a day for a ote, and even prom
ised that other financial legislation should
follow as soon as the n peal bill was passed,
but the silver men would have none of it,
and declared practically that they would
talk the bill to death. Stewart began a
speech on his resohr.ion about senators
owning national hank stock, but soon
dropped to the silver question. Shoup
opposed the repeal bill. Dolph spoke
against free coiuage and an executive ses

Gl'TiiiiiE, O. T., Sept. 14. Twenty
thousand people have l n added to the
immeuse crowds ou the line of the Chero
kee strip. The force of clerks at the regis
tration booths is being increased, but
work as hard as they will the line grows
longer instead of shorter. Supplies are
running low and prices are going up.
Meals have jumped from 25 to 75 cents.
Sandwiches are 20 cents, lemonade 15 cents,
w;ter3cents without ice and 10 cents a
glass with ice. At Arkansas City booth
over 0,000 are in line and registering is pro
ceeding very slowly, the clerksbeing about
worn out. At Orlando about 5,000 are still
in line, and every train brings from $00 to
1,000 peple. A hot wind has blown all day
from the south, burning everything up and
hurling clouds of dust into the face and
eyes of everybody, the temperature going
to 110 degree.
X'eople Faint in the ltanks.
About twenty people, four or five of
them women, fainted inline during the
day, mid several are dangerously ill from
the effects of the heat. People with teams
are compelled to pay $1 a barrel for creek
water and from $2 to $5 a day for camping
ground. The afternoon train from the
north was in six sections of eight coaches
each. Confidence men, gamblers, and
pickpockets are getting thick, and people
are being robbed and victimized on every
side. A colony of several hundred negroes
has arrived, every one having a printed
certificate granting him a farm upon his '

These people were victimized by some

At Hennessya man from Kansas City was

greater than at Orlando and water has
given out. At Stillwater the crowd is
growing faster than the clerks can regis
ter, it i estimated by conservative men
that on Saturday there will be on the line
to take part in the race about five persons
to every claim on the Strip.
Appeals to Srrretary Smith.
Lieutenant Caldwell sent a telegram by
way of CampSoppIy through his superior
officer Colonel Parker, to Secretary Hoke
Smith advising him of the conditions ex
isting at the booths and suggesting that
as the registration has proven almost a
complete failure it be discontinued. All
of the newspager men rep.esenting metro
politan papers have united in a similar ap
peal, saying that humanity demands it.
So bitter lias the feeling become against
the registration system that when Fri
day night arrives and it is apparent that
thousands in waiting will be unable to
have their names placed on the list, a riot
will be precipitated.
Order Cannot He Unforced.
Curses loud and bitter are aimed at Hoke
Smith and his representatives here, and ns
the end approaches it will lie difficult for
the handful of soldiers to restrain the
crowd. Practically the same condition ex
ists at Orlando, Stillwater. Hunnewell
aud Caldwell. It wiil be impossible to en
force the order issued by secretary mith
forbidding any one to biard the trains en
tering the Strip at noon who are not
ar::ed with registration certificates.
Train load after train load are arriving,
loaded to their fullest capacity, and this
influx will be kept up constantly until
