New AVnr Ship Tlint la Expfctnl to Make Twenty-Two Knots an Hoar. rillLADELFIJIA, Aug. 22.-Amid the shrill blasts of whistles from the river craft and hearty cheers from the specta tors on shore, the cruiser Brooklyn, sister ship of the magnificent New York, passed down the Delaware river this morning on her way to Boston harbor, where she will be given her trial trip early next week. If everything Is favorable, a preliminary run will bo made over tho official courses Mon day, and the official trial under these con ditions will take place on Wednesday. If. however, it Is not deemed advisable to make tho preliminary run without a day's rest, the trial will not be made until Thursday. The Brooklyn is guaranteed to make twenty knots, and for each quarter knot over Ud3 speed the government will pay the builders a bonus of $G0.0.v. The New York made 21.07 knots on her official trial, there by earning a premium of H'dO.OOO. It is be lieved that the Brooklyn will exceed the New York's time by at least half a knot, and it Is predicted by some that she will make an average of twenty-two knots dur ing her ofllclal run. DENIED BY RUSSELL SAGE. Western L'nlon nnd Hell Telephone Will Xot Consolidate. NEW YOtllv. Aug. 22. Russell Sage nays there is not a word of truth in the reported Impending consolidation between the West ern Union and the American Bell Tele phone Company. The Western Union holds a conslderablo amount of Bell Telephone stock in the millions but no chanco in the relations of the corporations is considered necessary. riho circulation of the minor had caused an advance of 2 per cent, in Weston Union, aad the official denla. was followed by a recession for almost an qual amount. ! f n v m CONFIDENCE WASTED WITHOUT IT THE U5ITCD STATES CANNOT HAVE PROSPERITY, Ami It Cannot De It e to red ly a Prop osition to Debase Currency and Scale Down Obligations. GREAT SPEECH BY M'KINLEY TO A CROWD OF PEXXSYLVANIAXS, WHO APPLAUDED EACH WORD. Financial and Tariff QneMloim Din ensued with Directness hy the Republican Nominee. CANTON", O., Aug. 22. Two thousand farmers, mechanics and other citizens of Newcastle, Elwood and other parts of Law rence county, Pennsylvania, arrived at Canton about noon on three special trains over the Baltimore & Ohio road. The first train had a flatcar, which carried a cal liope and a cannon. Both were In action while the train was running and the sight was a novel one. All the coaches were well filled. Along their loag journey the pilgrims had many recruits. When they had paraded to the McKInley home six thousand people crowded over the bare lawi and surged Into the streets round about. Then It rained, but the bands played, thousands of enthusiastic voices cheered, cannons boomed and steam cal liopes lent their noise to the medley of sound, the grand chorus defying the ele ments. The visitors stood through it all for an hour, waving their banners and beat ing their tin helmets. They carried in scriptions reading: "We want back the good old McKInley times," "We want the furnaces and factories started, not the rich men's nfines," "Honest money and a chance to earn it," "Free trade makes cheap men; free silver makes cheap money. We want work, and work paid in gold money." The presentation of the visitors to Major McKInley was made by ex-Congressman Oscar L. Jackson, who said: "Most of our people are as familiar with your public career as those ot your own district, and we are proud of our right to call you neighbor as well as fellow-citizen of this great country. Your nomination was not obtained by self-seeking, neither was it the result of accident or the Impulse of the moment. For years no other citizen was so well known, and none so often mentioned throughout the whole land as a suitable candidate for that great otiice. So certainly had public sentiment designated you as the lit man for the plaee that the convention seemed to meet only for the purpose of ratifying the choice. This large delegation represents all classes of citizens of our country farmers, merchants, stu dents, professional men and the working men from mines, mills and factories. But we are of one sentiment and are here for honor you as the most distinguished friend of the American system of protection. Wo know that this system bene tits all classes equally, and we have enjoyed a fair phare of the prosperity that attends it. Under it our country has developed, wealth has accumulated and the wages paid. "It will not admit of doubt that a large majority are now in favor of protection. That Is the real question to bo settled thl year, and we want to do our part to keep this before the people. We consider the much-talked-of question a false Issue raised by designing men for selfish pur poses. Itepublieans are not asking for any change in this respect. For many years we have had good money, and we only want to keep it good. We claim in all that it Is best to occupy a leading place among the great nations of earth. Undoubtedly, then, we should have money that is rec ognized as the best the world over. "We are not the people that should go back to cheap, poor money, and when that question does come up, we want all we have to be good equal to the best." Mnjor 3IcKlnley Reply. When Major McKInley mounted a chair on his stoop to respond to the sentiments of Colonel Jackson, calliopes, cannon, bands and thousands of human voices rent the air. When order had been restored. Mr. McKInley said: "Mr. Jackson and my Fellow-cltlzens of Lawrence county, Pennsylvania It gives me very groat pleasure to welcome the citizens of a neighboring State to my city and to my home. I note with great satis faction the message which your eloquent spokesman brings me, that the people of Pennsylvania have lost none of their de votion to the great principles of the Re publican party and that this year they will give to the Republican national ticket an unrivaled Republican majority. (Cries of 'We will do that all right.') Nor am I surprised, my fellow-cltlzens, that this is so. We have had three years of bitter experience under a policy which the Republican party has always opposed; and there has been nothing in that ex perience to win us to that policy, but everything to increase our devotion to the o!d policy of protection, which stands op posed to it. (Applause.) "I was glad to meet my distinguished friend. Colonel Jackson, with whom I served in the Congress of the United States, and to again hear his eloquent voice, as I have often heard it in the halls of the national House, speaking for the great doctrines of the Republican party doctrines, the success of which involve the highest prosperity and welfare of tho American people. (Cheers.) "The earnest thought of the people this year Is directed to th-, present condition of the country and how best to improve It. This Is the thought of every mind and the prayer of everv soul. Nobody is sat isfied with our unfortunate business con dition, and the great body of the people want and mean to have a change. What shall the change be? Shall it be the con tinuance of the present Democratic party under another leadership? (cries of 'No no')-a leadership advocating all the pol icies of the Democratic party which have been injurious to the American people (Great cheering and cries of 'No. no.1) "The wing of the Democratic party which controlled the Chicago convention is just as much in favor of free trade as the wing of the Democratic party in control of the national administration. (Applause and cries of 'That Is so.') Most of those prominent In that convention were con spicuous leaders in the ussaults upon our industries and labor made by the Fiftv thlrd Congress. They are devoted to this un-American and destructive policy, and were chieily instrumental in putting 'upon the statute books tariff legislation which has destroyed American manufacturing checked our foreign trade and reduced the demand for the labor of the American workingman. (Loud cris of You are right.) It stands opposed to reciprocity too. the splendid results of which' were 6 signally manifest during th administration of President Harrison. (Applause.) The people of this country have condemned the policies of this party In the. particu lars in every election since 1S02. (Ap plause and cries of 'That's so.) They are only waiting now for a chance to reg ister again, and all along the line will unitedly register their opposition to th's free-trade hereby in the general election of next November. (Applause and cries We can hardly wait till the election Major.' ANOTHER ISSUE BESIDES TARIFF. "If there was. therefore, but one question-that of protection against free trade we have it Just as sharply drawn, as dis tinctly presented through the Chicago convention wing of the Democratic party as we had it througn the united party in 1S92. and a triumph this year for the Chi cago platform would be a signal victory for free trade and for the continuance of frc-trade legislation, which has already resulted so disastrously to the American people and entailed upon the government Ueilcient revenues, upon the people dimin ished trade abroad and starvation wages at home. Cries of 'That's so.) "This wing of the Democratic party be lieves not only in free trade, but It believes In free silver at a ratio of 15 to 1. (Cries of 'Down with free silver! ) Having dimin l?hed our business they no seek to dimin ish the value of our monfy. Having cut waf in two, they want to cut the money in which wages are paid In two, but we will not have either the one or the other. (Tremendous cheering and cries of 'Hurrah for McKInley.') The other wins of the Democratic party is patriotically striving for the public honor and is oppoed to free silver because it believes that such a policy would disturb existing value, contract the currency of the country by depriving us of the use of gold and putting us upon a sil ver basis, thus creating widespread panic and bringing to every Amercan interest serious injury. "My fellow-cltlzens, will tho people turn to that party for relief whose policy has created the conditions under which we are suffering and from which they are crying out to be relieved. (Cries of 'No!' 'No!' 'Never!') What we want now is business activity and confidence. With business confidence restored money will Invest in private and public enterprises, and when so Invested labor will be well rewarded and the toll of the husbandman will be fully requited. (Great applause.) Without con fidence money will be hoarded and the wheels of Industry stopped, and what that means many of the men before me know. (A voice. 'We have lived on sunshine too long.') Then the farmer, the merchant, the manufacturer, the laborer and those of other useful occupations alike will suffer. "Gentlemen, confidence lies at the founda tions of active and successful business operations. We cannot restore confidence by a proposition to debase the currency of the government and scale down the public and private obligations. Such a proposi tion strikes at the very life of credit and business. It makes it harder to get money for legitimate and worthy enterprises by deliberately proposing to pay back what has been already borrowed In a depreciated currency. (Cries of 'You ere right.') THE PEOPLE WILL DEFEAT IT. "The people, irrespective of party, will unlto in defeating a financial scheme which will confiscate the partial earnings of la bor in the savings banks and building and loan associations and the investments of the people in insurance companies, and I do not believe that the American people will ever consent to have the pensions of our soldiers repudiated by a single farthing. (Great cheering and applause.) "The people want neither free trade nor free silver. (Renewed cheering.) The one will degrade our labor; the other our mon ey. (Applause.) We are opposed unal terably opposed to both of them. We have tried the one In a modified form, with disastrous results to every American home, and we are strongly opposed to mak ing an experiment with the other. (Ap plause.) "My fellow-cltlzens, the people have a chance this year to take the Wilson law oil the statute books and put a good Amer ican protective tariff law in its place (enthusiastic cheering and cries o 'They will do that all right'), which will provide adequate revenues for the gov ernment and gladden the home of every American workingman. (Great applause, and cries of 'Hurah for William McKIn ley.') They have a chance this year to prevent a free-silver law from going on the statute books and thus keep our money of every kind now In circulation as good as gold and preserve our national name above reproach. (Cries of 'They will do that, too.') If they do not improve the chance now they will not have another op portunity for years. "Does the workingman. the farmer, the manufacturer want the Wilson law to re main on the statute books four years longer? (Loud cries of 'No.') Do they want reciprocity, wnich will give us a for eign market for our surplus agricultural and manufactured products to remain off the statute books four years more? (Re newed cries of No.') Do they want any law enacted which would compel them to receive for their wages and product dol lars worth less than one hundred cents? (Cries of 'No.') Theee are questions which every voter In the country must answer in his conscience and by his vote next No vember. Gentlemen, what shall the an swer be? (Cries of :iect McKInley," fol lowed by tremendous cherlng.) "I thank you most hc?.:iiy for this call, for your expression of good will and for the assurance which Mr. Jackson has given me of your unfaltering support of Repub lican principles. It will arford me sincere pleasure, I assure you, to meet every one of you personally. ' (Applause and cheer ing.) Following Major McKInley, F. L. Poister. of Elwood City, spoke briefly for the vis itors from that section. I. A. Todd then presented to Major McKInley a steel tube cane. Many greetings were exchanged, and Major McKInley shook the hands of the multitude. The cannon which was brought with the visitors was made of 118 pieces of bullets, bugles and other war relics. With the cannon comrade J. R. Trax, of Newcastle, saluted every town from New castle to Canton. He fired a salute during the parade and In front of Major McKin ley's residence. Hon. Joseph T.

The banks in Toron to are dally becoming more suspicious of American money, and now not one of them will accept any form of American money at par to any great extent. Yesterday the Bank of Montreal, in Montreal, refused to take United States bills or silver from any one. The Toronto branch of that bank still receives small amounts from custom ers and charges ij per cent. The Mer chants' IJank is also considering tho ad visability of refusing all United States money, but to-day received bills at a dis count of 1 per cent. The Standard has for some time maintained a discount of 10 per cent. The Dominion now charges 2 per cent, on national currency and lo per cent, on silver certlilcates. Other banks charge from U to 1 per cent. Only the Bank of Hamilton receives bill at par from cus tomers in small amounts. ltettirii of Mm. nml MIn Clemens. XKW YORK.

BRYAN AT MADALDi porocnAcrs xomixer speaks ix A VILLAGE SEAR TIYOLI, X. Y. lie Falls to Anrnrer Donrke Cockrnn, bnt Denonncei the Lenders of Gold in Ylgoroui Terms. PLEADS FOR SILVER BARONS AND ASKS THE PEOPLE TO ASSIST IX SWELLING THEIR PROFITS. He Declines to Fairly Answer the Question "Are You a Democrat f Stewart Stopped by a Storm. TIVOLI-ON-HUDSON. N. T., Aug. 22. The Democratic candidate for the presi dency, "William. J. Bryan, spoke to 1,500 people assembled around a platform in the village square at Madalin, one mile south east of here, this afternoon and .for forty minutes discussed the financial Issue from the bimetallic point of view. He was sec onded by Senator Stewart, of Nevada, who started to explain what he termed the "crime of '73," but was cut short by a relentless shower which had been threat ening throughout the afternoon. An intro ductory speech of an hour was made by Hon. John J. Lenz, of Ohio, a silver can didate for Congress. In response to a posted notice exhorting them to decorate their houses many citi zens had hung out tricolored bunting, which gave the lllage a festal appear ance, enhanced by the outpouring of farm ers. The people came from all parts of the country by train, on horseback, on hay racks. Impressed to carry farm hands, and In more pretentious carriages of the sum mer residents, and the number who gath ered t about tho platform standing in the open field exceeded the population of the village. Mr. Bryan was welcomed at the edge of the village by the reception com mittee and a Ifcass band which, followed by the Bryan and Sewall Club, escorted his carriage to the square to the music of -Hall to the Chief." The boom of a field piece announced his arrival. Mr. and Mrs. Eryan were heartily cheered as they stepped to the platform. Sir. llrynu's Speech. The chairman of the committee, Hon. Frank Ormsbee, introduced the candidate. Mr. Bryan thrust his hands into the pock ets of his black alpaca coat and spoke as fellows in a conversational tone, but grad ually advanced to an oratorical pitch, and although the audience was frigid in the beginning it warmed into much enthusiasm and cheered the peroration loudly, and after Senator Stewart hau concluded fairly .nobbed the platform to shake hands with the candidate and his wife. Mr. Bryan said: "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen Yhen our party at Chicago wrote the plat form which it did wo knew that It would offend some people. No party can take a plain, strong, emphatic position upon any question without offending somebody. Vi declared In that platform what we be lieved was right; we described the policies which we believed were best for American people, and we knew that it would alienate some. Let me read one of the blanks of that platform: " 'We are opposed to the issuing of interest-bearing bonds of the United States in time of peace and condemn the. trafficking with banking syndicates, which, in ex change for bonds and at an enormous profit to themselves, supply the federal treasury with gold to maintain the podey of gold monometallism.' "That is one of the planks (voice In the crowd. 'It is a good one!') that was not put In there to attract the love of those who have grown rich out of the government's extremities. (Applause.) Ve did not ex pect those who have a passageway from the federal treasury to their ortlces to Join with us in closing up the passage. We did not expect those who are making a profit out of the gold standard and out of the em barrassment it brings to the treasury; we did not expect them to join with us in put ting an end to the gold standard. Do you remember the good book states that some l.iOl years ago a man named Demetrius complained of the preaching of the gospel. Whv? He said lt destroys the business in which we were engaged. We are making. images for the worship of Diana, and these people say that they be not gods that are made with hands.' But Demetrius was much like men who have lived since his day. When he made up his mind that the preaching of the gospel interfered with his business he did not 0 out and eay to the world: 'Our business is being injured and we are mad.' What did he say? He said. 'Great is Diana of Ephoslans.' (Applause.) NV3T WRITTEN FOH "GOLD BUGS." "We have some to-day who are very much like Demetrlur. They know that the restoration of bimetallism destroys the business in which they have been engaged. Hut when they make public speeches they do not say that the Democratic party is wrong because it interferes with their busi ness. What do they say? They say, 'Great is sound money, great Is an honest dollar.' (Applause.) I say this platform was not written to attract thrir votes. It was writ ten because we want to destroy the busi ness In which they are engaged. But. my friends, if those who have made a profit out of the government's financial policy array themselves against the Democratic party, may we not expect those who be lieve that we are right to come to our rescue and fill up the ranks that are being depleted by their desertion. (Applause.) If we must part company with thoe who believe in a government of syndicates, by syndicates and for syndicates, may we not appeal with confidence to those who believe that a government of the people, by the people and for the people should not perish from the earth.' (Applause.) If these men who pride themselves upon their prominence In the business world and who glory in the title of business men are going to make a business out of politics, are go ing to use their ballots to increase their income, I beg you to consider whether the great tolling masses of this Nation have not a right to make a business out of poli tics once and protect their homes and their, families from aisaster. (Applause.) "The founders of our government never contemplated the time would come when there would be only a few In this country who were competent to settle great public questions. (Applause.) It they had they would have written in the Constitution that on most questions most everybody could vote, but on the money question oiny the financiers may vote. (App ause.) Great political questions are economic questions, and great economic questions are in their final analysis great moral questions, and it requires no extended exp.?tRnce in the han dling of money to enable a man to tell rlsht from wtong. and, more than that, that this money question will not be seitled until the common people act upon it. Abra ham Lincoln said the Lord muM have loved the common people because he made so many of them. The common people are the only people who have ever supported a reform that had lor its object the benefit cf the human race. I do not moan to say that there have not been exceptions to,th rule. Our opponents of the gold-standard Democracy are all iinked as to the policy which should be pursued. They all want the same object, they all want to elect a Republican candidate because they lK'.leve that Democracy is better exemplified through Hepub lranlsm. (Laughter.) "A GOOD THING." "Some of our opponents say the gold standard Is a good thing, while others say 'What we want is bimetallism, but we cannot have it until somebody helps us. (Laughter.) If the gold standard is a good thing, why should they want bimetallism? And yet if they ever havo two men making speeches the Fame night the chances are b to 1 (laughter) that one of them will praise the gold standard as a good thing, while the other will tell you how anxious they are to get rid of it. One man say the reason whv h does not want free coinage is that'he does not think that the government should pass a law that will enable the sliver miners to take 5-J cents' worth of silver bullion and convert it into b cents. Of course, he may have been In favor of a svstem of taxation that would give 200 or per cent, profit, but that does not count; it is a terrible thing to allow the silver miner to make that profit. Then the next man who comes up will ay that as a matter of fact the stamp of the government adds nothing to the value of the metal nnd that the free coinage of sil ver simply means that you convert W cents' worth of bullion into a CO-cent dol lar and nobody makes any profit out of it. (Applause.) Now, you can ree the absurd ity of it. If the stiver miner, under the law of free coinage, finds that his silver bullion is raised so that that which is now worth 50 cents will be worth 10) cents, then there are no 50-cent dollars, and if the other man is correct and the law adds nothing to the value of the metal and you simply convert 50 cents' worth of silver into a 50-cent dollar, then the mine owner has not made a cent. Well, then you hear another speaker say there has been no fall in the prices, and he will denounce the people who are complaining that gold has risen in erlce, and then his colleague will tell you that not only have prices fafien, but that it is the greatest blessing in the world to have prices fall. "Our opponents do not dare to say that the gold standard is a goov tnlng. because no party In the history of this country has ever declared in favor of a gold stand ard, and they do not dare to say that the gold standard is a bad thing and tell 70. 000,000 of llberty-lovihg people that they have got to suffer until some foreign na tion brings them relief. (Cries. 'That is right!') What Is the principle that under lies it all? It is that the law of supply and demand applies to money as to everything else?. Increase the amount of money more rapidly than the demand for money in creases, and you lower the value of a dol lar. Decrease the quantity of money while the demand for it Increases, and you in crease the value of a dollar. When you understand that principle then you under stand why the groat crusade in favor of the gold standard finds its home among the holders of fixed investments, who by such legislation raise the value of the property which they hold. (Applause.) I am not giving you my authority for it. my friends. I have called attention, and I shall con tinue to call attention, to a remark made by Mr. Blaine in Congress on this subject. He said that the destruction of silver as money and the establishing of gold as the sole unit of value must have a ruinous ef fect upon all forms of property, except those investments which bring a fixed re turn of money. (Applause.) "When you understand the effect of the policy and then understand that the drsire for it is manifested mostly among those who hold the fixed Investments and trade in money, I think you will come to tho conclusion that I have come to, that the fact that the gold standard is a good thing for them is the principal reason why they are in favor of a gold standard. (Applause.) SILVER DOLLARS "EASY TO OBTAIN." "Now, my friends, when you make up your minds that the gold staneiard is a bad thin. then the only question that you have to consider is, how can you get rid of it? They can raise objections to the plan which we propose,, but if coinage makes a silver dollar equal to a gold dollar, why, then, it will be Just as hard to get a silver dollar as it is to get a gold dollar. Do you know that they overlook the fact that when we bring silver Into competition with gold we increase the supply of standard money; that while the silver dollar will be worth as much as the gold dollar, it will be easier to obtain with the products of toil a silver dollar or a gold dollar than it Is to-day? (Applause.) "If there Is any person here who is afraid that under the policy proposed by the Chicago platform we are going to have a flood of money and that you will be drowned in it. we cannot appeal to you for support. But if there is anybody here whose experience is such that he is will ing to risk the. disastrous consequences of that Hood upon him, we ask you to con sider whether we are not entitled to your vote." Here a voice caned out: "Are you a Democrat?" Mr. Bryan said: "I think that the prin ciples which I advocate nre Democratic." Somebody again asked: "Are you a Democrat?" "1 am myself, but you can call me any name you please. You cannot swerve me from what I believe to be gooel for the .people. (Tremendous applause.) If bi metallism Is to be restored the United States must take the lead. (Applause.) I assert that the American people not only have the right but the ability to legislate for themselves on every question, no mat ter what other nations may think about it. (Long applause.) The man who says that bimetallism is desirable and yet that the United States is impotent to bring these advantages to our people has made an ad mission that I shall not make. We appeal to you to remember that the United States is the only nation that stands ready to protect its own people from every danger, foreign and Jomestic. (Applause.) Other nations may protect their people as they should, but our Nation is the only nation that can protect the American people.

Well. now. my friends, they refuse to apply to the silver that Is produced in the world the law of supply and demand.

HIS RESIGNATION ACCEPTED AND A StXCnSSOIl TO 1112 APPOIXTED ntOBADLY THIS WEEK. 31 r. Smith Hooka and Papcra Al ready Shipped to Atlanta, Where lie Will lleanme the Practice of Law ' WASHINGTON. Aug. 21-For pome t!m rumors havo appeared in print on ths probability of the early resignation of Sec retary Hoke Smith. There Is now no doubt but that he has resigned and that his res ignation has been accepted. For some days past shipments have been made to Atlanta of bis books and papers, and It is learned that he has declined to set any departmental business 4.o be heard by hira for a date later than this month. It can safely bo assumed that a successor will be in charge in a very short while. After the nomination of Bryan and Sewall it became known that Secretary Smith was the only member of the Cabinet who an nounced the purpose to support that ticket, and that this action on his part, whllo not in any way affecting the personal rela tions between himself and the other mem bers of the Cabinet, seemed so material to him that he felt constrained to tender his resignation. The Secretary declines to dis cuss the subject in any way. Ever since the rumors of the probable resignation of tho Secretary there has been more or less gossip concerning his prob able successor, and at the Interior Depart ment the name of John M. Reynolds, the Second Assistant Secretary of the depart ment, had boen mentioned frequently for the place. Mr. Reynolds has made an ex cellent executive oflicer. He .has had charge of the difficult work of review of pension decisions of the Pension Bureau, and has given general satisfaction. He Is a native of Pennsylvania. The new Cabi net oillcer will have only a little more than six months to serve, and It is regarded as probable that Mr. Cleveland would pre fer to fill the vacancy from the depart ment rather than Mil the place by appoint ing some one who would be new to the work, which involves acquaintance with a great variety of matters affecting directly the public welfare. A dispatch from Buzzard's r.ay, Mass., says: "President Cleveland was fishing with Dr. Brj-ant all day. lie would make no statement concerning the report of Sec retary Smith's resignation when seen this evening." The Star this evening says: "Secretary Smith will probably retire either Just be fore cr Immediately after the Indianapolis gold Democratic convention. Those who are familiar with the relations which exist between Mr. Cleveland and his Cabinet say that there never has at any time leen the least friction between Secretary Smith and the President, or between any members of the Camcet, and that the personal rela tions between the President and Mr. Smith are still most cordial. Mr. Smith has en Joyed the respect and confidence of Mr. Cleveland at all times, and has been given the broadest latitude ever given any Cab inet officer In the management of the af fairs of his department. It is known to all the Cabinet nnd to such persons ns are In the President's confidence in this matter that it is with sincere regret that he sees Mr. Smith separate officially from the ad ministration, but the Secretary's Fense of the fitness of things would not admit of his remaining In the Cabinet after he found himself not in political accord with the President and the other members of the Cabinet, and that he could not yield his opinions on account of his position or his personal friendship for the President."

The rumored resignation of Secretary Hoke Smith occo slons no surprise here, as it has been un derstood among the Secretary's intimata friends, ever since he came cut for the Chicago ticket, that he would, sooner or laWr, retire from the Cabinet.
