Dear Kir ine Utrcni.ii-.iiu-ricuii Sound Money League, consisting of members of both parties, was organized to ascertain the attitude of the Gemun-Amcrlcans In regard to the money question. T.'ie written replies received from all over the United Btat-s Justify the league in making U.e 1 olio wing statements: First That of tte C81 German-American newMianers in this country which discuiui puliiiw, h mem fjvoroi thepreentgold standard, tniny-nine arezor Dimeiaiusm.or Hie cinaee 01 nlver. and forty-three arc doubtful.

Second That 00 percent of tbeGermjn- Ainerican voters are in lavor or inc main, tennnce of the present gold standard, aud will support only that party which In Its platform declares itself unequivocally in lavor of that standard; that they will not vote for n Presidential candidate, who, by hl-lett er of iicrpliinre. does not pledge hiin bdf to stand by this platform. Third The party which In Its ilatrnn and through Its candidate for Vresldeut will declare emphatically for the mainte nance or thq gold standard will command nlmo'-t the entire German vote, regardless of party affiliations. The German-American Bound Money League rccosnizes the rollowlng facts ns established by history, experience, anj science: 1. That commerce and industry require one standard of exchange. 2. That-the government stamp upon coin or paper does not Impart any intrinsic value to them, but converts tbem merely into mi Instrument or convenience. 3. That the value of money consists in its purchasing power. 4 That the issue by the government of money which In the market or the world Is not accepted for its face value. Is a rohbery committed by the government against everybody who Is forced to accent said money at its face value, uuless tec f:overnuient Is ready and able to redeem t at Its pretended value. The league holds also the following views: 5. That free coinage of slher would be suci'i a robbery, because sixteen grains of silver are worth ouly 51 cents in gold, the coin metal of the civilized world. C. That the prevailing low prices of commodities are not due to the demoneti zation of silver, but to (mentions and Im proved processes, which -have cheapened and quickened production In nil branches of agriculture and Industry, silver mining not excepted. 7. That gold lias nut appreciated, but has merely remained stjpie. 8. That free coinage of silver would not increase the value of sitter, liecause the greater demand for it will continue aud expand lis overproduction. CONTRARY TO DEMOCRACY. 9. That the ruinous Consequences of free coinage would fall most disastrously upon the workiugmen and tlic farmers, whc earnings would certainly be decreased, unless they could exact for their labor and products $2 where they now receive $1. They also would fall severely upou persons wholly or partly dependent upon fixed In comes from pensions, savings banks, loan societies, etc. 10. That free coinage of silver would be contrary to the teachings of Thomas Jef ferson, the founder or the Democratic party, and, being principally demanded for the benefit. of the silver miners. It would also be contrary to the tenet of the Democratic party, that the government bus no right to use the taxing power of tliu ccJintry for the benefit of special classes. 11. That free coinage of silver would cause a bu&ines panic in this country more disastrous In Its consequences than any the world has ever seen before. In conclusion, we would respectfully ask you to consider whether the wage and salary earners of the country, being a ma jority or the voters, can be- expected to support a party and u candidate advocat ing the free coinage of silver, us soon ns they recognize that free coinage. of stiver wouid reuuee tne purchasing power of t'icir earnings by 50 ner cent. They will mri assuredly be enlightened upon ems suDieci. iiuring rue campaign.

Charles Emory Smith left at 4 o'clock for Cleveland, partly to escape the wretched Cantun hotels and partly to have a quiet talk with Mark lianna about the organization of the executive committee. He will return Saturday and make one of the principal speeches at the great rati fication meeting in tbe afternoon. 'The receptlou this afternoon by the ladles of Canton to Major and Mrs. llc Kiuley and the venerable mother or Major McKlnley indicates that the candidate nominated at St. Louis appeals in some way with great power to the sentiment or the women of this community, for tliey caruc forth by the hundred and by the thousand, without, reg-ird to party, or sect, or color, to do honor to Major Mc Kinley and tbe two ladles. For more than two Lours an unbroken stream of women, two and sometimes three abreast, passed in at the frontdoors or the spacious Miller residence, thence to the m cciving room and out by a side door. There were women or an uges and conditions. Young girls or twelve, grandmothers and great-grandmothers, pushed In side by side. Substantial matrons or tbe city, wives of the great manufacturers, were crowded between lie vlesorshop girls and type writers. GIRLS OF ALL SORTS. There were pretty girls, homely girls, stylish girls, and girls plainly from tbe country and the country dressmaker. It was a good-natured, smiling crowd and it numlicred 6,000. While the women walked through the house the orchestra, concealed Ix'hind a great bank or fems. palms and flowers, played, and the movement or hair a thousand tongues did not wholly dfownit. Tbe bouse was a bower of bloom and weidure. Hundreds of riex, carnations ami polled plants hud been used with a happy skill r the decorators. The girl typewriters all said It wus "simply ele- guui, auu iuereisnououutth.it the errtct wasa charming and satisfactory crfie. Tbe flowers aud palms were thickly studded with tiny electric bulbs. The llght-or dny vas excluded, and when tbe Incandescent burners blazed forth amid the bloom and leaves, aud rrom the ceiling. Hie spectacle was a radiant one. The reception commenced with a speech. It was made by u Canton lady, Mrs. Alice Daunos Jones. Mrs. Jones stood in the window or the reception room and spoke to the sea or bobbing parasols on the lawn. This was before the dtiors were opened, and the assembling hosts of women had to listen to the speech or go away. None or tbem went, for the si.eecb was gil and Is destined to bae wide currency in the campaign. It wus Just the sort of speecu tne good people or (.anion wanted to bear, and during lis delivery many a women Indulged In the luxury of a furtive tear. Among ether things, Mrs. Jones said: MRS.

All the mothers with little boys Telt the Tuture glow with nope when the speaker uttered these words, and they applauded her vigorously when she had finished. Major McKlnley.in a dozen words, thanked the ladies for their presence anil took hij place with his wife and mother to recene tbe women of his town. It was an effective group. Mrs. McKlnley and tbe major's aged mother, who Is an attractive old ladv, sat in large chairs on a dalz. There were j-ilm and flowers around them, ll.ijor McKlnley stood at the left of bis wife and nuidc the Introductions. He was deenly tcu'bedand visibly moved by the character and the manifest sincerity or tbe Interest which the women of his town showed him and bis family. FIRST OF THE KIND. He perhaps never received a more em phatic and gratifying tribute of neighborly, not to say sisterly affection. In his life. On the wall back of the receiving party, nlr-osL-flve feet above Major MeKinlejs head, was a large white crown, the out lines of which were traced by eighty eight glowing electric lights. The sig nificance and function or this device was uneplalued, but no doubt it was decora tive rather than symbolical. The reception today was the first formal expression on the purt of the women of the liking they have for Major McKlnley and It was a very unique, successful and significant function. This.cvening a de'e gation or cheerrul shooters rrom Korwalk, num three hundred in number, called upon Major McKlnley and trampled the last spots of veraue rrom his beloved lawn. Mijor McKlnley took much pride In his lawn and counted it the most beautiful in Canton. Tonight. It Is a wreck as there is no health in It, but he bears his loss with becoming good humor. "WAS WISE TO SELECT HANJTA. "What an Intimate Friend Sa.VK About the Ciiinpalgn Management. Cleveland. O., June 26.-An Intimate friend ot Major McKlnley said today: "The appointment of Mark Ilanna a campaign manager was alioutthe shrewd est political move McKlnley has made m all his career. Ilanna 'not only devoted UN entire time to the cause, but he con tributed freely toward Its expenses. A canvass extending over several j ears Is an expensive undertaking nnd the money had to roine from somewhere. "Air. Ilanna has said recently that the canvass cost him 5100.000. Of that amount $38,000 was contributed by friends of McKm!eytbroughout the country. As one item or the exienses it may be said that lue cost or keeping the friends of the cause posted on Its progress was $2,500. ;it was done by mailing 1,600 copies daily of one of the local official organs to the convention delegates and leading Re publicans In all parts of the country. That was done for several months and was but a single feature ot one of the most per fect political organizations ever made In a political campaign. Burled ut Arlington. The funeral of Col. Albert G.

The present tactics or the union may be learned rrom their circular letter and the result ot a meeting which was beU last night at which the officers an.i cxcu Utf bfiard were present. After so'-no discussion it was unanimously resolved io Issue the following letter: "There Is trouble now existing between the Metropolitan Railroad Comjuny aad VS.-81"?..

GETTING PUBLIC SENTIMENT. It was determined last night to pro ceed on the lines or action already de scribed In TbeTImcs, that is, ror thepresent, to depeud on public sentiment tit work in favor of tbe men who tune lout their places, and generally for a fair deal for the men from their employers. . One of the plans or campaign was put into execution yesterday, and it is claimed that it was very successrul. One ob'ect is to get the public to boycott the Ninth 6trect line, aud there was an opportunity to test the reeling l the public jetenla". nftcruoon, with the crowds returning from the Itasebnll part. Previous to the game an agent of the men provided himself with a poster, on which were the worua: "Don t ride on tbe Ninth street cars. The oldest men have been dlsdiarged." The man wiib this device had no difficulty in getting into the park, as it was not an advertise ment." aud. in fact, he said that the offi cials told blm that It was all right, aud to gi. aLead. lie made tl.e sign conspicu ous aliout tbe park, and it was cheered in such manner as to Indicate winch way tbe crowd was In the fight. Members of the union wentto Uand Nln'b stieet to see what effect this inanlreMo had on the crowd. Thev reported that the cars did not earry half the usual number and some "or them estimated the return ing crowdatone-firthor the usual passenger rrarfic-. On the way out of the gates sev eralorthefricndsoftlie men took up the cry., ot "Don't ride on the Ninth street cars," and this, too, had n big effect. Mens asking the public to boycott the line irew left at the park gates. -I.NDLVIDUAL PLEDGES MADE. The mei were busy yestenlay morning vu - vui:--i eitiuK putige i roiu-Business men. clerks, ladies and gentlemen. Tnls. too. In a short time indicated great sym pathy witb the emplojes. At one place they got twenty pledges, at another seventy and at a third forty-five. As this work is to be continued from lay to day It Is evident that it will assume HiM proportions as to result. They have assurances from many department clerks that tbey will do what they can to spread the boycott. , A very clever scheme was devised by Mr. Albert Halght. or national labor head quarters. He printed a large number r.f strips in red ink and in larue letters ne simple motto being. "I'll Walk." A good many ot these were dlstrtlmted. altho'ign they were late in coming out. and rnnnv ot them were worn by clerks after working hours yesterday. One lady to whom this eloquent ilttl thing was handed on the street caught on right off. She pinned It on and saM "Yes. I'll walk, and I'll make the who'e family walk all their lives If the only way to ride Is on that company's lines." It wus expected that there would hive been a conference with Congressman Bib cock yesterday, but as stated in the t--U-gram to the editor of The Times from Mr. Kabcocfc and also one received yestcrd.iv by General Secretarv Hayes. Mr. Habcooi is not expected until today. Tbe return of Mr. Martin of tbe executive board, wbo went to New York to see Mr. Bj brock, was also, expected jesterday," but up to a late hour last night he had Let " reported at general headquarters or ut his hotel. It was thought that he probably would return with Mr. Balicock today There will be a test of tbe position ascribed to the discharged men at the meeting or the Street Railway Assembly, which will be held todav nnd tonight ror the election of officers. Most of those wno have been dimissej will probably be re elected tonight. A statement has been credited to Mr. rhtllips that the men who had lieen dliulsii were agitators nnd dangerous to the interests of the company. It. will be seen tonight whether or not the Street Railway Union agrees with Mr. rh'lhps. At preent there Is cverv lntlica tion that the men will be chosen again and th's will be a general indorsementof their action and a condemnation of tbe road officials. THREE FRIENDS RETURNS.
