ANOTHER SPEEDY SHIP rilELDIIXARV TRIAL OF I'XCLE SAJl'S XEW CRt'lSKR, DROOKLY.X. Avrrnffe of 20.07 Knots an Hour for n Distance of S3 Knot Better Time Expected Next Trial. BOSTON. Mass.. Aug. 21. The cruder Brooklyn was slven a preliminary trial under forced draught over tho official course between Capo Ann and Cape Tor poise to-day. The average speed for the round trip of eighty-three knots was 20.97 knots an hour, a very satlsactory perform ance, nil things considered. The contract calls for a sied of twenty knots an hour In a run of four consecutive hours. For each quarter knot above this a speed premium of .", 000 Is allowed the builders. It is believed that on the official trial on Wednesday a speed cf knots will be re corded. In which event the ship will earn the Cramps the handsome bonus of $300,000. To-day a conditions of wind and sea were absolutely perfect for the trial. There was only a slight breeze blowing and the water was us smooth as glass. On the trip up the course, with the tide against the ship, the distance of -112 knots was 'accom plished at the rate of 20.G knots an hour. exactly the speed of the cruiser New York on her preliminary trial over the same course tour years ago. Without slacking speed th- Brooklyn made a wide turn and started back on the second leg of the race. On thu trip the engineers were able to get more spent out of her, the a v. -i age being 21.2'S knots an hour. This bro iglV. the mean average tor the round trip up to 20.97 knots an hour or a trifle less than 21 knots an hour. The. course Is divided Into six stretches. averaging nearly seven knots each in length. Buoys are used for markers and between two of these at the upper end of the course on the down trip the ship was tpe ded up to an average of 22 knots for a distance of seven knots. For about two mlU-M the average was :2 knots. This great speed was accomplished under circum stances that were eminently satisfactory both to the representatives of the Cramps 8nd the naval officers on board. Tho en gines worked beautifully, not a drop of water being used on the bearings. The highest number of revolutions were 133 a minute, but the average was less than 1V, This average can be exceeded by at least rive revolutions a minute and if the Brook lyn does this on the official trial Wednes day the speed ought to be at least 2Hi knots an noui.

The se rious casts are still there, while the others are either removed to their homos in Alle gheny or continued on their journey. The wreck was a peculiar one. and In volved three trains the local freight. No. 27; the through freight. No. 23. and the east-bound passenger. No. 11. from Chi cago. The local was standing at Valencia station unloading freight when the through freight came to the top of the grade just east of Valencia. The engineer, who was on the lookout for No. 25. put on the air brakes, but they refused to work, and his train went crashing into the local. Just at the time the two freights collided the pas senger came along on the east-bound track and was struck by the freight cars which were derailed at that moment. The engine and baggage car of the passenger train got through safely and broke away from the rest of the train. The first passenger coach, In which were a great many women, was crushed by a carload of oil well tubing. The tubing was thrown with terrific force in every direction, causing most of the wounds received by the passengers. The wreckage was piled twenty-live or thirty feet nigh in places. The railroad people say that the whole trouble was caused by the failure of the airbrakes to work whlic the through freight was on the hill. Iron Works Shut Down. PITTSBURG, Aug. 24.

O., Aug. 2l.-One thousand workmen from the twenty-eight potteries of East Liverpool, O., traveled seventy-five miles this morning to call on Major McKln ley at his home. The glazed ware Industry has been established In America since Major McKinley was sent to Congress from this district, twenty years ago. Chairman W. I j. Smith. Col. J. N. Taylor and W. II. niakf headed the delegation. The latter is a pottery hench worker and an eloquent talker. The visitors on their way to Can ton, and later on their march to McKln ley's residence, attracted recruits, until S.00C enthusiastic, cheering people gathered about the. McKinley home. Mr. Blake, In part, said: "Under the Wilson-Gorman compromise, which opened up the floodgates of our ports to foreign products, $9.000,Xn) worth of crockery have been Imported. Every dol lars' worth, or a large percentage of it, could and would have been made In Amer ica under your protective policy. Instead our factories have been limp and helpless. Under these unhappy conditions the arti sans have been thrown out of employment, have had to put up with an inordinate amount of discomfort, scarcely capable of keeping their heads above water. The potters want to see prosperous times agatin, and to this end they will vote for round money, a protective policy and William McKinley. Your peerless record in Con gress, your ardent devotion for the cause of protection; your love for everything American; your principles, which have never been vacillating nor ambiguous; your life Itself, which has been an open book, m which is written in letters gold the faith ful performance of every duty, have all cn deared you to the hearts of the people of this great Nation, and especially to the hearts of this delegation." Mr. McKinley' Reply. Amid great cheering, Mr. McKinley stepped to the front and said: "Mr. Rlake and my Fellow-citizens I cannot conceal, and would not, the pleas uro which this visit on the part of the citi zens of East Liverpool and of Columbiana county gives me. I have been deeply moved by the warm and generous words spoken by Mr. make, and nothing gives me great er pleasure, nor more satisfaction than to feel that I have behind me. supporting the great principles for which I stand, the worklngmen of my old congressional dis trict. (Applause.) Ihe message of good will so eloquently expressed by your fel low-workman has profoundly touched me. I cannot forget that you trusted me in my young manhood, fo; which 1 am deeply grateful, and that you have ever since fol lowed me with unfaltering confidence, for which I am also duly appreciative. I re member the first time that I ever looked Into the faces of an East Liverpool au dience, twenty years ago, and then, as now. I was speaking for sound money and a protective tariff. (.Great cheenng.) "Your spokesman has alluded most gra clously to what he terms the services I have given to your great Industry. If I have done anything to bring work to you or my fellow-man anywhere, and made the conditions of the American workingman easier, that Is my -highest reward, and greater reward no man could have. There Is no industry, my fellow-citizens. In the United States which demands or deserves protection through our tariff laws more than yours. It Is a business requiring tech nieal and artistic knowledge, and ihe most careful attention to Lie many delicate pro cesses throiiRh which the raw material must pass to the completed product. Down to 152 the pottery Industry of the United States had achieved little on ro success. and had mad but slight advancement In a practical and commercial way. At the close of the low tariff period of 1S00 there was but one white ware pottery In the United States, with two small kilns. Dec orating Kiins wee not Known, in Psij. en couraged by the tariff and the gold nrem ium. which was an added protection, wc had increased to twenty potteries, with ?ix- ty-eltrht kilns, but still tio decorating kilns. (Applause, i me capital invested was SU20)0. n nd the value of the products was JI.1MU-K.ui. in lz mere were Mfty-Hve pot teries. 2 kilns. 2') decorating kilns, with a capital invested of $.".)7fi.0oo and an aninnl product of Jo.SH'.HO. The wag.-s paid in the potteries in 12 were $2.Cs7.ft0. and the number of employes engaged therein T.OfO, or 4." per cent. You have twenty-eight pot teries in the city of East Liverpool to-day. A PROPHECY VERIFIED. "The difference between the wages of la bor in this country and of foreign countries you know better than I can tell you. When the law of 18S3 was enacted I stated on the floor of Congress that if the duty of 53 per cent, and CO per cent, was given, as rec ommended by the bill then pending, in less than five years the quality of American ware would bo Improved, the quantity in creased and the price to the consumer sen sibly diminished. That prophecy has been more than verified. (Cries of 'You are right!') In 1SS2 an assorted crate of ware sold for ?37. and the same only a better ware is now sold for less than ?(0. In ll we paid for tho same crate of ware $210. "On decorated ware the immen.-e benefit to the consumer Is even more apparent. The selling price of all decorated ware was from yi to loo per cent, higher in 1S2 than in 1S?0. In 1.2. with the low revenue tariff duty of 21 per cent, and no domestic man ufacturers, an assorted crate of white ware sold at $'.C: In l:l0. with rT per ctnt. duty and domestic eomjx-tition with large pot teries, which are the pride of the country, employing labor and capital at home, buv ing our own raw material, the same assort ed crate is selling for $i). (Applause.) What the state of business has been In the past three years you know better than I can tell you. Without any actual knowl edge about It. I think I can safely say that you have not been so prosperous as you were prior to 13 (cries cf You are right: we haven't!); and that the past three years have been years of unsteady and irregular employment, reduced wages, less work and It ss pay. (Cries of 'Yes:') "My fellow-cltlzens. the people in 12 were busy at work and gave little attention to politics. Thev will not be so indifferent again. (Applause and cries of 'You are right; they won t!') They have more time this year (laughter) than they had four years ago. and are giving earnest attention and active work to the national contest which is engaging the country. We are growing more and more to recognize the great necessity of every citizen- giving per sonal and serious thought to his political duties. Business men. worklngmen and the people generally are coming to realize that business and politics uro closely related; that bad politics means bad business and that politics cannot be neglected without endangering our occupations, our earnings and our labor. THE LESSON OF THE PAST. "Wo have had some distressing experi ence in this direction which has taught us that if we do not keep our business, our business will not keep us (great cheering), and that if somebody else does our work we will have no work to do at home. (Ap plause.) The people are settled In one pur pose, this year they will not tolerate the surrender of any more of their business and will as quickly as possible recover w hat they have already lost. They know how they lost it. thev know when they lost it and thev know now to get It back and they mean to do It. Tremendous applause and cries of 'Hurrah for McKinley!') "Another growing sentiment among the people is that, much us they are attached to old party associations and hard as it is to leave their old relations, they would rather break with their party than to break up their business; that parties are not as strong as business tks and the good of the country is more to be desired than the suc cess of any political party. Men will no longer follow a party v.nen it leads away from business success and prosperity, when its politics cripple our industries and the Learning power of labor. Thev will not fol low a party whose policies impair our nnan- clai dignity and the nonor oi tne country. (Great applause.) "We are learning another thing, my fel low-citizens Indeed, we know it already that no matter what kind of money we have w cannot get It unless we have work. (Cries of You are right. Major'') Whether It is poor money cr whether It is good money, whether It Is goM or whether It is silver, we cannot get one dollar of It un less wo have employment for our hands and heads. (Enthusiastic cheering and waving of hat0 And we know another thing that when v.e have work we would rather have our pay in good honest dollars, with the most purchas ing power, dollars wrhich will not depre ciate In our hands over night, but which will be good every day and every year ami everywhere. (Renewed cheering and cries of 'Hurrah for McKinley!) We ennnot help labor by reducing the value or the money In which labor is paid. The way to help labor is to provide It with steady work and good wages, and then have those good wages always paid In good money, monev as sound as the government and as unsul lied as this flag (pointing to the American Hag.) (Tremendous cheering and appiau?r.) "I thank you. my feuow-cltizens. for this call nnd for the warm messages brought to mo by your spokesman, and be assured It will afford me pleasure to meet and greet everyone of my old friends, fcr I can never forget. I would not forget, the un wavering kindness and support I have al ways had at your hands." (Great cheer ing.) SPEECH TO FARMERS. McKinley Talks nt I-entli on Rene- fits of the Home Market. It was nearly 1 o'clock when a party of seven carloads of Knox county farmers reached Canton by a special over the Penn sylvania. They had the Centerburg (O.) Cornet Band with them and were very en thusiastic. They marched the mile from the station to the McKinley home In good form. A local farmer headed the parade with u load of new-mown hay. They were a sturdy-looking set of men, and cheer after cheer went up as their chairman appeared on the stoop with Major McKinley. Mr. II. D. Critrhiield, of Mount Vernon, a son of a Knox county farmer, made a neat presenta tion. Major McKinley's response was re peatedly Interrupted with applause, and it was quite lengthy. He said: "Mr. Critchfield and my Fellow-citizens It gives me very great pleasure to meet and greet the citizens of Knox county in the city or Canton and nt my own home. I am glad to welcome .ny old comrades of the Grand Army, my fellow-citizens who are engaged in agricultural Industries and my fellow-citizens of all occupations who are here assembled this morning, lour moetin demonstrates that you have a keen interest In the public questions which are now engaging the people of the United States and that you want this year, as you have always wanted, In the past, to vote for those principles and those policies which will achieve tne greatest good and the highest welfare to the country. I am glad especially to meet the farmers of Knox county, for the farmers of the United States are the most conservative force in our citizenship and In our civilization (ap plause), a iorce tnat nas always i-tooa or good government, for country, fcr libetty and for honesty. (Great applause.) "Whatever the farmer is suflering to-day Is lecause his competitors have increased In numbers and because his best customers are out of work. (Applause and cries of 'iou are nsht! ) I do not know that we can decrease the number of your competi tors, but with the adoption of a true Amer lean protective policy we can set your best customers to work. (Tremendous cheer lng.) We have suffered in our foreign trade and we have suffered in our domestic trade. The farmers have suffered In their export trade, and they have likewise suffered in their home market. Under the 'Republican tariff law of we imported in 11 over 111. (Km). oat) pounds of wool, valued at over $lo.0"0.CG0. in 1VU5, under the Democratic tariff law, we imported 21S.i"mmv (too pounds ol wool, valued at $33.7o;.000.

In wtxjlen good the difference is more than $r0.0eu,!Ko in favor of the foreign manufac turer and against the domestic producer. Tho total loss in these three items to the American wool grower and the watce earn ers in American woolen factories is more than $''2.r.00.(M). Is It any wonder that sheep husbandry is no longer proiuabie.' OTHER PRODUCTS. "So with other agricultural productions. During the last seventeen months of the Republican tariff law there were Imported into this country HO.OoO tons of hay. and during the first seventeen months of the Democratic tariff law there were imported 273,0)0 tons. The Wilson law gave the for eign producers a market for 133.000 tons. more than they had enjoyed In the last seventeen months under the Republican tariff law. This loss exceeds $2,000,000.

CninpnlKti MannKorn Flooded with Request for Tickets of Admission Senator Frye nt Ilatli. SARATOGA. X. Y., Aug. 2l.-The end of a long day of many conferences rinds a sit uation to-night that has hardly been equaled in the history of State Republican conventions. Thomas C Piatt, for many years the leader of the party, and but once an oitlceholder, is besieged In so vigorous a manner that his determination not to be a candidate, still adhered to, is quite likely to be overridden and the scenes that marked the nomination of David R. Hill in lS'Ot may lifid Republican repetition to-morrow. On the other hand, men wiio for months have nursed gubernatorial booms llnd their booms to-night on the verge of collapse, a collapse so sudden that it has paralyzed the ambition of energetic work ers and spread some discontent among the rank and file. The proposed nomination of Mr. Piatt, It is alleged, is for the purpose of healing dif-. ferences and preventing a breach between the followers of Aldridge and Fish, but if that is the aim it would be hardly success ful, for already there Is a friction over whom shall be Mr. Piatt's running mate. The frelnds of Mr. Piatt have coupled the name of Mr. John IT. Seatcherd, of Buffalo, with the office of Lieutenant Governor, and this has given offense to the followers of Mr. Woodruff, of Brooklyn, who thinks he would have been the choice had the Platt boom not been launched. Mr. Sax- ton's friends are not averse to having his name coupled with Mr. Piatt's on the ticket, and Mr. Saxtop Is quoted as passing encomiums on Mr. Platt as the logical nom inee of the party. Mr. Mark llanna, it is alleged, has spoken very favorably of the nomination of Mr. Platt. As to whether Mr. Tlatt has changed his attitude from refusal to consideration of acceptance, he said himself to-night: "I have not receded from my position of last night. The pressure brought to bear upon me to-day has been very great, and I sim ply have said that I will not give iinal de cision on the entire question until to-mor row morning." By some this is construed to mean that Mr. Platt will reconsider and accept, but there are others equally, positive that he will not accept. To-night all of the candi dates are still in the field, but are waiting in an inactive state for Mr. Platt to make some announcement. liven If he declines again there is a possibility that there will be a stampede in the convention, and that the nomination will be forced upon him. Rut If Mr. Platt accepts he will not receive either a unanimous nomination or a nomi nation by acclamation. Some members from Xew York city have openly asserted that they will not vote for Mr. Platt; that will necessitate a ballot. It Is a situation full of uneasiness here, and of great por tent to the people. Mr. liatfs son, Frank Platt, arrived late in the afternoon, and was closeted with his father for some time. Then he talked with his mother over the long distance telephone. Later he said "I have no idea what the decision will be. My lather is still consid ering the matter." Mr. Lauterbach said to-day: "J,t certainly would be presenting the issue squarely to the people to nominate Mr. Platt, and those who are opposed to him could display their actual strength. Then, too, there Is an cle ment of nationalism In the proposition to name Mr. Platt. It is contended that Mr. IMatt being on the ticket with Mr. McKin ley would compel a thorough support of the national Republican candidate by the State organization and that the dinerence in number of votes cast for the State and na tional candidate would display each man's relative strength or weakness." One of Mr. Piatt's very closest friends said: 'Mj Platt will not accept the nomi nation. He is too shrewd a man to be de ceived by handstrokes and proffers of as sistance from temiorarlly cordial enemies. He has not forgotten that the same tender of assistance was made to Mr. J. Sloat Fas sett In lSjl. and he has also not forgotten the kind of supiort Mr. Fassett got.'' Kx-Senator Fassett himself is here and ho.sald: "Mr. Platt would probably get as equally warm reception from the enemies of the State organization as I got. In any event it is not a propitious time for Mr. Piatt's name to be presented, as the na tional campaign managers would throw the entire weight of the State campaign on his shoulders." The platform of tho convention is prepared and has been read to the leaders and approved by them. It is not lengthy, but approves of the work of the last legisla ture. Of the Raines law it will say It is the most effective law with regard to the liquor traffic that has been enacted in an Ameri can State; has reduced the number of sa loons ami taken the saloons out of politics; turned into the treasury more than ten millions of doliars and benefited the cause of morality. It will commend the adminis tration of Oovernor Morton and the pas sage by the Legislature of the Greater Xew York bill. The financial utterances will be almost like the plank In the national plat form and for gold, and Indorses the national ticket. ii auuisox's sri:i-:cu Tin rsdav. llxtrnordlnnry Interest Manifested liy the People of Xew York.

The Republican State commit tee has Ikcii fairly overwhelm d with aj pea's for tickets to the meeting, and it is alrcfdy apparent that the hall will ac commodate but a small percentage of the people who deslro to hear the distinguished lndlanian. M. M. Eckstein, secretary of the committee, who has had charge of the correspondence on the subject, said to-day that It began to look a if there would bo ten times as many applications as there were reserved seats. All this goes to show the eagerness of the people of this city to hear what General Harrison will have to say on the financial question and other Issues of the campaign. Letters have leen received from Republic ans In other cities, asking how they cou'.d obtain tickets for reserved seats at the Harrison meeting, and they have len ad vised that the only way was to send appli cations to Charles W. Haekett, the chair man of the Republican State commute, at the lifth-a venue Hotel in this city. Ap parently enough out-of-town Republicans would come to the city to fill the hall if they could te assured seats. Judging from the number of such Republicans who have sent applications to the'State committee. It Is likely that i: will be necessary to make provision for an out-door overflow meeting on Thursday evening. Chauncey M. Depew. who Is to preside at tho meeting, is at Xewport to be present nt the marriage on Tuesday of Harry Payne Whitney to Miss Gertrude Vandcr bllt. t The Breakers. Cornelius Vander bllt's handsome home. While he is there he will prepare the spMch that he will make at the Carnegie Music Hall. In re sponse to many requests he will make :i longer speech than as chairman he other wise would. He expects the meeting to be one of the greatest and most enthusiastic of the campaign. He. says that he has heard everywhere the greatest interest manifested in General Harrison's speech. Frye- Speaks nt SevrnlTs Home. RATH.

First Yacht Race of the Internation al Scries Declurcd Off. TOLEDO, O., Aug. 21.-After sailing over the first leg and a little more than half of the second of the international yacht race course to-day, the judges declared the race off, as it was evident neither boat could sail the twenty-four-knot course within the time limit of five and one-half hours. There was no time from the start until the rare was postponed that there was enough breeze to taKe the boats over tho course In tho time limit. It was a little more than a drift all the while the. race was on. The only thing demonstrated by the contesting boats was that Canada can outsail Vencedor In a light wind and Canada sailors can outsail the crew on Vencedor. Canada took the, lead after crossing the line from the start. Vencedor turned the first stake toat nearly twenty seven minutes behind her rival. Canada's time on the first leg was two hours and fourteen minutes. As there was no im provement in the breeze while the boats were sailing on the second leg. it became apparent to the Judges that it would Lw necessary to postpone the contest, and they therefore called the race off.

St. William J. Bryan, accompanied by Mrs. Bryan and Private Secretary Cutr'ght. left Upper Red Hook at noon to-day to begin their home ward journey to Lincoln. Mr. llryan baa gained flesh during his week's sojourn in the East and in In high spirits, inspired particularly by tho approaching meeting with Senator Hill, chairman Hinkley and other Democratic leaders, which he expects will result in assurances of the pratlcally solid support of the State organisation. Much of the time of the past three or four days has been spent by Mr. Bryan work ing on his letter of acceptance. The docu ment will not be so long as his Madison square Garden speech, nor will It be given to the public until Mr. McKinley's accept ance has been published. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan drove from Red Hook to Rhlnecllff, and were brought over the Hudson to Kinston Feint on a tug. Three or four hundred ixrsors were at the) landing, where the train was in waiting to receive the passengers from the up-boat en route to the Catskllls. ThU was the train for which Mr. and Mrs. Dryan had purchased tickets for Big Indian, on their way to Wlnniook Ixdge. where they aro to spend the night s guests of Major Hink ley, chairman of the State Democratic com mittee. A rush waj made for them by tho curious and excited crowd, and it seemed for a time that two policemen were quit unable to control the crowd, but Mr. and Mrs. Bryan were finally pushed Into tho parlor coach Bavaria. Mr. Bryan addressed the citizens from the rear platform, shak ing a Ik. .t 'v minutes, lie yaid: "I-do-not care to make any speech, al though I never see people gathered togeth er without wanting to make a speech. I have at heart the best interests of th American people. I believe in platforms, platforms to get in on and to stand on, when you get jn. I believe the money ques tion Is the paramount issue of this cam- paign. I want you to study the question and when you study rememler that tht-r are some ieople who nrmly Ixlieve in m. gold standard. (Voice in the crowd 'That is good.') If you believe In bimetallism you ought to believe in it to the extent you will vote with those who want to bring It about. No political party has ever de clared fcr a gold standard. The man who advocates a gold standard in this country is a man without a party. And a man who thinks the gold standard Is a bad thing, but that tnis Xatlon must suffer under It until some other nation comts to our relief, will be a man without a party after this election. If I am anything of a prophet we must make jolttlcs a buslne this year. A man who has a small busi ness is as much interested In It as a man who has a large business. It is all you have and you have as much right to protect your small Interests as any other man ha to protect his large Interests. But I must clo-e, for if 1 talk much longer I will have made a speech." The train then moved on up towards Kingston Union Depot, four ndles away. At this point the Wf st Shore train had Just brought a crowd of passengers who wers waiting to be transferred to this train. In addition several hundred iople had as sembled to greet the Bryan party. During the transftr of cars here th- crowd again rushed forward to shake Bryan's hand, who stood on the rear platform, while Mrs. Bryan was on the front, also, receiving greetings. No speech was made, as It waa announced that Mr. Rryan would make u formal address to the ix-ople of this city In front of the city Hall, on his return from the Catskllls. to-morrow afternoon.

Xo stop was made below Fhoenicla. It be ing an express train, and there was no special incident until that point wa reached. There the Democratic candidate alighted and shook hands with several hun dred more. Down at Kingston a colored man steped vp and sld: "Sow three- cheers for Mc Kinley." But although there were numer ous McKinley badges about no one re sponded to the colored man's appeal. At Phoenicia cheers were given for Bryan. The next stop was Alia ben. Though brief. Mr. Bryan again took the people by th hand until the train began moving away. At Shandaken a large crowd had gathered and a man was blowing a cornet vigorous ly. Again the silver candidate and hi wlf made their appearance and greeted th crowd cordially. On reaching the rail destination at Blip Indian a large crowd was found waiting the arrival of the party and It was with . difficulty that Mr. Bryan and his wife were escorted to the carriage which was waiting to convey them up the Big Indian valley. He was forced to speak a lew words from the piazza of a loarding brjuse near by, saying that he was surpilsed. though mueri gratltud that so many had l-een attracted by curiosity and Interest. I hope tho who have come to scofT will remain to pray." he said. ".ien I call a person a gold bu;;' I don't mean to criticise, but I Uie the term with the same good feellnjj that he uses the word 'lunatic when he speaks of me."
