Despite Constant Excitement.

CisHors and organizations, aDd making
At 8 o'clock a traiu load of people from
Nilcs, Major McKlulcy's birthplace, readied
tbe house. They attracted "mucli atten
tion on tue streets, for tlie banners they
bore were sheets of home-made tin, stuck
Into staffs.
The factories there closed for the day,
that the men might have the opportunity
to make the visit. Mr. Jos. Smith,
president of the Nile Republican League,
under whose auspices the excursion was
ruu, Introduced Mr. W. H. Smiley, who
poke for the visitors, their greetings and
congratulations. lie said:
"Major McKlnley, I have the pleasure
of introducing to you some hundreds of
the citizens of your native town of Nllcs,
among them are u very large number of
the employes of our town. We realize tliac
what we have been, what we are, and
what we hope to be, is largely due to that
which is sometimes called protection, and
now it is called 'McKinleyism.' (Cheers.)
"We realize not only what you have
done for us, but what It has cost you to
do It; we know what It must have cost a
man In that Fifty-first Congress which
gave us our tin mill. (Loudandvocifcrous
cheers.) We know that jou have sacri
ficed every interest and given your life to
the Republican party and to us; and if
there is anything we can ao ior juu we
want to do it. (Checrs-a voice: "Tell
them what Campbell said. Smiley.")
"In 1891, Gov. Campbell stood on the
platform of a car In our town and said: 'No
man will ever live to see tin made in Nlles,'
but that Is only one of the many mistakes
"our adversaries made. Every Republican
President and every man who has led the
Republican party to victory since the days
of Lincoln, was born in Ohio. Major Mc
Klnley will be the fifth and will add to the
honor of toeing born In Ohio, and especially
of having been born in Nlles. (Loud cheer
ing.) "What can the nation do except to
do as that convention did and elect him
Major McKinlcy's appearance to re
spond was the signal for an outburst of
applause. This subsiding, he addressed
the throng as follows:
"Mr. Smiley and My Fellow Citizens I
om very glad to meet the citizens of my
native town. I do not see many of the old
faces that I was wont to see In my boy
hood In this presence. I think I have been
able to see but one that I remember to have
lived in the village of Nlles when I was
a boy and that is Henry Mason. I recol
lect him as the merchant of the town,
and as I look into his face today I re
member that he was kind to every boy
jnd I like a man who is kind to a boy.
"I am glad to meet and greet so many
of the worklngmen of the village of Niles.
I was glad to have demonstrated In my
native town that we could make tin plate
In the United States, and In reply to
what your spokesman was kind enough
to say of ray service. I answer that If
I have been associated with any legisla
tion that has given to a single work
ingman a day's work at American wages,
that is honor enough for me. (Loud ap
"What we want In this country Is apolicy
that will give to every American working
man American wagcs;apolicy that willput
enough moncyintotbcTreasury of tbeUnltcd
States to run tbe government; a policy that
will bring back to us that period of pros
perity aDd plenty that we enjoyed for more
than thirty years. (Cheers.) I am glad to
welcome you to my home.
"It is especially pleasing to have the men
from my own boyhood town and the place
of my birth gather around me at my home
as they have today, and I reciprocate from
the Imltom of my heart all the kind senti
ment': for all of you that have been spoken
of to me so generously in your behalf by
your chairman. I wish for old Nlles' pros
perity in every workshop and in every
factory und in every home, love and con
tentment and happiness. I thank you and
bid you good afternoon."
Major McKinlcy shook hands with his
visitors and while thus engaged tbe Nlles
Campaign Glee Club sang a number of
patriotic songs.
In one or the Interims between the visits
of delegations in the course of tbe after
noon, the Junior Drum Corps of Canal-Dover
came up to the bouse. They were little
fellows In knickerbocker suits of wbitcnnd
blue and their tuneful melodies greatly
pleased Major and Mrs. McKlnley. The
rormcr gave to each a handshake and a
kind word.
The first of the delegations from Wheel
ing to arrive was that of workers from tbe
La liellc Iron, Steel and Tin Mills about
BOO strong who came In at IS o'clock.
They carried tin canes, badges of tin, with
the name of the mills stamped on themj
and an Immense banner or tin nearly five
feet square. On one side was inscribed the
name of tbe mills and the year and on tbe
other In immense .red letters "McKinlcy
tin.'- The spokesman for the delegation
was W. II. C. Curtis.
He wnsthe first speaker toaddrcss Major
McKlnley as "Mr. President," and the
title struck the crowd favorably, as mani
fested by the shouts of approval that fol
lowed. Mr. Curtis said:
"Mr. President, if there has ever been a
nominee of any political party in the his
tory of this country that had a cinch upon
that title, you are certainly the man, and
as Mr. President I hail you in advance.
This delegation of E00 iron, steel and tin
plate workers comes from that grand little
mountain State of West Virginia to pay
nomago and respect to William McKinlcy,
father of the tin plate Industry of America,
the next President of the United States,
and the greatest aprstle of protection to
American enterprise this country ha6 ever
known. x
"While we do not come to greet you, Mr.
President, as a political organization, strict
ly speaking, yet we cannot help but recog
nise you as tbe leader of tbe party who
saved this country from destruction In the
sixties, and will save It again In tbe
ninety's. Itsverybreatblsthatot progress;
Us speech the language of the laboring
classes of this country; Its dialect the
rhetoric of the home, the factory, and the-counting-room.
That party holds within
her ranks the germ ot all great reforms,
weighs public sentiment, and at the oppor
tune tlmo cryslalizes that sentiment Into
wise and official legislation."
In conclusion Mr. Curtis presented the
Immense tin banner to Major McKlnley
and nndcr Instructions pledged him the
entbuslastlo support ot the delegation.
Major UcKinley's response was In these
"Mr. Curtis, I ben to thank you, and
through you this assembly. Tor the generous
message of good will and congratulations
Which you lavs brought to me from the Utto
Mountain State. There is no tribute
greater, there Is no tribute that could be
dearer toany man thunto haveltsald.astho
speaker hns been kind enough to say of ine,
that he contributed In tho smallest degree
to the establishment of an Industry In tho
Uuited States, which gave employment to
American labor and brought comfort to
American homes; and I shall long cherish,
my fellow citizens, these kindly words
and this demonstration which comes from
the worklngmen of Wheeling, Irrespective
of party.
"I cannot understand nobody can under
standthe meaning of these demonstra
tions on the part of the worklugmen. Tbe
mean just ODe thing, and that thing Is:
That In the mind of every American work
iugman Is the thought that this great Ameri
can doctrine of protection Is associated
with wages aud work, and linked with
home, with family, with country and wltb
general prosperity. That, fellow citizens,
is what all three demonstrations signify.
They mean that the people of this country
waut an industrial policy that Is for
America and for Americans. (Applause.)
The Wheeling mill men brought with them
this af tcrncon a great bunch of roses, over
which Mrs. McKlnley looked out of the win

Tbe result ot the Populist conference here
was made public this afternoon. It Is a
circular addressed particularly to Popu
lists, and generally to voters of every party.
The document is signed by twenty-six lead
ing Topullsts, from six Western and South
ern States. It says:
"Expressly disclaiming any purpose or
right to biudTiny party or person by tbe
flews here set forth, we but yield to
an overpowering sense of duty in saying
what wc do to members of the Peoples
piny and to all other good citizens, who,
apprehending the approach of a moment
ous crisis in our country's life, are wiling
to a vert it by acts ot exalted patriotism.
"We came to St. Louis as citizens, mem
bers of the Peoples party, to be present at
the meetings of tbe Republican National
Convention that we might determine more
definitely for ourcclves the true aim of
that organization In the present struggle.
"Here, we have seen tie 'boss' In politics
more securely enthroned, more servilely
obeyed, and more dictatorial as to candi
dates and policy than bas ever before been
witnessed In tbe field of national politics.
One man, the perfection of bis type, repre
senting the millionaires, tbe banks, tbe
corporations, the trusts and every other
remorseless and plutocratic clement In our
country's life, bas, through the power of
money, dictated tbe nomination ot Mr.
McKlnley, and shaped tbe platform of bis
"We have witnessed a convention, magni
ficent In numbers, pretending to represent
free American constituencies, moving for
'thrie days as If a hand, of terror was
above them, whose might they dare not
tempt, and whose Imperious pointings It
was impossible to disobey.
"This convention, slavishly responding
to the will of the money power, has forced

to tbe yeoman of tbe land. If itls declined,
or, If It shall succeed; the features .of a
tyranny, more grinding than that of czars

peopleof the country fetters which must be
Indefinitely worn with tbe contemptihfc
spirit Inseparable from willing serfs; or. in

power of a mighty revolution.
"That issue Is formulated la tbe demands
that the 'existing gold standard must be
preserved,' and for the enactment of 'all
measures designed to maintain inviolably
the obligations of the United States and
all our money either coin or paper at
the present standard.'
"This means that silver shall be perma

"That tbe greenback and all other forms
of government paper money shall be re

Mrcond Reading of Civil Code Bill.
Bcrlln, June 20.-. Tbe Berlin newspapers
are filled with references to the presence in
BcrilnofLlHungChang.theChlnese viceroy,
and Field Marshal Tama gata, commander-in-chief
of the Japanese Army, who came here
from Moscow, where they represented their
respective governments ut the coronation of
Czar Nicholas II.
LI Hung Chang bad a conference lasting
two hours with Baron Marschall von liiebor
steln, minister ot roreign affairs, at tbe
foreign office yesterday, which gave rise to
rumors ot the conclusion of a definite China
German agreement whereby China cedes
a coaling station and grants land conces
sions to Germany for tbe establishment of
trading posts in return for the assent of
Germany to tbe increase ot tbe Chinese
The Pott assumes to confirm these rumors,
but the report is nevertheless discn-dlted In
diplomatic quarters wherein tbe .extent of
tbe powers to treat which the Fekin govern
ment has entrusted to LI Hung Chang are
best known. The emperor has showered
honors upon Li Hung Chang, believing that
the viceroy Is still In possession or great in
fluence with the Pekm government and is
able to further German industrial enter
prises In Germany.
What is known as an absolute certalDty
In regard to LI Hung Chang, however, is
that lie is ready to accept money to help
the Pekln government from anyone who
Is ready to lend.
The viceroy remarked to an American
gentleman whose acquaintance he formed
In. Moscow and wuom he again met lu
Berlin, that he would be glad to place
orders for the construction ot warships and
the furnishing or munltious or war in the
United States if he could negotiate j. loan
with American bankers.
LI Hung Chang bas seen several of the
leading Berlin financiers and talked over
tbe prospects of another Chinese loan, but
no conclusion was reached, nor bas tbe
viceroy given any definite orders to Ger
man firms. Indeed, he bas gone no further
in that direction than merely to obtain esti
mates upon Ironclad cruisers from Btettln
shipbuilders and guns from the Krupps.
LI Hung Chang will visit Kiel as tbe guest
of the kaiser and will inspect the emperor's
new racing yacht Meteor. From Kiel
he will go to Hamburg and visit the Thorn
A Chinese fete was given In honor ot LI
Hung Cbang at the Berlin exhibition and
a son ofthe viceroy has received rrom the
emperor the. crown order of the first class.
The Cologne Gazette cautiously says that
Germans ought not to be too'saugulne us
to tbe beneficial results of LIHuDg Chang's
visit, us It Is doubtful whether be will be
able to inspire the Chinese official mind
with tho Idea that bis aims at progress
for China Would become enlarged through
her intercourse with Germany.
While LI Hung Chang was being feted
and fawned upon, Marquis Yainagala kept
In the background all the time he was
lu Berlin. He went out very little, and
several times consulted Prof. Renvens,
the eminent specialist. In relation to an
Intestinal complaint which bus been in

Marshal Yamagata declared that he had
no official mission anywhere, and only
wanted to be quiet. After bis reception
