THE SPEAKER'S TALK ON MONEY Notwithstanding (he Condition of the Elemeuts, Great Enthusiasm Pre-vaiU--Every Dollar Earned by the Workingman Should Be at Good at Our Flax. Canton, O.. Oct. 7. The first McKln ley club organized In Indiana arrived In Canton ut 8 o'clock this morning, having been on the cars since yesti.-i-day noon. An hour after reaching Canton the members of the club called on Major McKlnley. A. B. Jenkins, of Goodland, the town from winch theln- tliana visitors came, made a short ad dreBS Introducing the club to Major McKlnley. The mornlntr was raw. and i a sharp wind from the northeast Mow ing and whirling the leaves across tne McKlnley lawn, but the Indinlins cheered In a manner which Indicated that temperature In n l after ted their enthusiasm. After Major Mu Kinley's speech a gl club san a number of humorous campaign sonys. Mr. McKlnley, In the course of his speech, said: TALK UPON MONEY. There Is a good deal of misunderstand lug as to how a government gels Its money and as to how Its pays it out. There ara some people who seem to believe that the way tne government gets its money is io make It. There are three or four sources j from whleli the tsovernment of the United Slates gets money. The chief sources of revenue are through tariffs and Internal taxation. Then the government gets some ; money from Its postal service, anu rrom these several sources conies the money that Is annually required to meet and dis charge public expenses. It takes about JWi.OOO.OuO a year to conduct this govern ment. One million and one-third every day are required to keep Us wheels In operation. Now, if the government had power to make money, as some people believe, or had the power to double the value of a thing by Its stamp or tiut It would not need to resort to taxation; it would simply set Its mints to work and make the neces sary money to pay Its running expenses. It could have paid off the national debt long years ago In this way. The idea that the government can create wealth Is u mere myth. There is nothing that cun create wealth but labor, that Is the foun dation of all labor. Now, as to the better way to get this money Is one of the seri ous quest lonsMn this campaign, how is It easiest lor us to raise the money to run this government, the H30.tjiM.0ull annual ly? Is It easier to raise it by direct tax ation, taxing the people In their occupa tion, at their property, their land, or Is It tint better to raise It by putting a tax upon the foreign products that come Into this country to seek a market in the United States? And that Is the policy und the purpose of the Republican party. They believe that the hulk of the money re ciulred to pay the expenses of this gov ernment should be raised by putting u. tax on foreign products that come into this country to compete with home prod ucts. (Cheers). Now, there Is another thing, we want our money good. (Ap plause), I don't care what employment we may have, whether we are working In ihe shopi or on the farm, or in the profes sion, we want every dollar we have In circulation as good as our flag. Ap plause. And as unouestioned as the cur rency of any country in the world. Ami ! thts Is the purpose of the Republican party i LAST SPEECH OF THE DAY. Major McKlnley addressed the two Ohio delegations lii the Tabernacle. His lust speech of the day was to the dele gation from West Virginia. He said in purt: No state In the t'nioti has made Kl'ea'.cr progress from lsTv to 1S2, in some respects under adverse circumstance,; than lie stale of West Virginia. Vou have mineral wealth, the development of which hits only Just begun, and which will be greatly promoted or retarded, according to the determination of the people as to the In dustrial policies Which they will adopt this year. Vou have, too. a rich agricul tural stale, which Is dependent for iw prosperity upon the prosperity of the cities and towns w hich In turn are dcpeml ent upon the prosperity of their manufac tories. It needs only the touchstone of -oti-liJetire and the assurance of stability lo enable your state to achieve still hluher rank and place and benertt Its own popu lation and add to your own growth anil to the republic. Hud your onward march or 1SH2 remained unchecked, hail your urowih and development been unimpaired, there would not be an Idle man in the state of Weil Virginia or a farmer whose prod ucts would not bring him living prlis. Applause.) The Interests of West Vir ginia ore identical and are not different from the Interests of every section of our country. The interests of your state are identical with the interests of my stoic. No longer are they separated in interest, or affection, of fraternity by the unhnppv events of thirty-live years ago. Xor should former political opinions be closed against the vision when exierience has demonstrated that those opinions nre clearly wrong. I do not believe there are many men in this country, no matter whal they have thought in the past, who will not now say that free trade or so ealled tariff reform, has proved by the ex perience of the past four years to be a signal and disastrous failure. (Great ap plause). It has failed, utterly failed, in every prophecy, promise and expecta tion. It has not secured a single thing that its advocates said would follow Its adop tion. Not one, more, it has not served a single American Interest. It has served the Interests of other nations of the world, but has given no benefit to the American people. (Applause and cries of "That's so.'') It has not helped the laborer, the far mer, the manufacturer, the merchant, the lumberman, the miner, the trader. It has not helped either the producer or the consumer. It has hurt both alike, for producer and consumer are Inter-dependent and one cannot prosper without the other, and the one cannot be hurt with out the other feeling It. (Great cheering). It has given the treasury an Inadequate revenue, insufficient revenue, and it has given the laborer Inadequate and Insuf ficient employment, and the farmer a disappointing and ruinous price for his products. (Applause). We want to get back to what we know Is good. We have tried experience and we know that when we have been on the ship of experi ence we sailed safely Into port, and when we have taken the raft of experiment we have always gone down. (Loud and con tinued applause). JUDGE PORTER SPEAKS. Wishes It Understood That His Feet Arc e i the Chicago Platform. New York, Oct. 7. Chairman Elliott Danforth, of the Democratic state committee, received a letter today from Judge Wilbur F. Porter, the regular Democratic candidate for governor, formally accepting the nomination, Mr. Porter, In his letter, states that he stands squarely on the Chicago and Buffalo platforms and will work hard for the election of Bryan and Bewail, Mr. Portetr says: That no person may cast his vote for me under mistaken misapprehension I declare myself In favor of bimetallism and for the restoration by proper legislation of silver to Its monetary candltlon as It existed prior to 1873; believing that in so doing the greatest good to the greatest number will be accomplished, and that prosperity to all classes will result there from, and that this country is strong enough of Itself to take the necessary step towards restoring silver as one of the siamiaras ot our nnanciai system, which will result, in my opinion, In bringing about an international conference with reference to the status of silver as money In nil principal countries of the worM.

Joshua Lever ing and Hale Johnson, the presidential candidates of the Prohibition party, at tended a mass meeting here tonight and delivered addresses to an audience of ITirt men and women. They . scoffed nt the notion that the currency ques tion was the most Important Issue be fore the nation. The liquor traffic, they held, was responsible for the hard times.

AGRICULTURALISTS MEET. Autumnal Deliberations of Pennsylvania State BoardAn Eloquent Address by Governor Hastings. Ambler, Pa., Cel. ".Tho uutumn meeting of the Penrsyivutila etai hoard of agriculture lrg:tn hero today mid will continue until toirorrnw even ing. The hoard Is well veprcsi ntcd. The meeting was railed to order, In the temporary absence of G.ivetnor Hf.st Inas. by H. H. Hutchinson, of Hunt ingdon county. The tfoveriior readied here from Philadelphia at noon and a rtiect parade was given I., his honor. The morning session was jeeupied In perfecting an oiuiiniiiitl in. This af-te-noon Powell Child, of Plymouth, delivered an address of welcome, to which the governor responded. B. W. Dumbly read a pa pep, entitled "How Can We Afford Bid Roads," and S. R. Downing, or West Chester, spoil? upon "The t'ash Plan In the Road Maintenance." Other pavers were also had. At each of the three sessions of the board today the (Ine opera house was crowded by farmers who drove in from the country. Two parades were held this afternoon, in one of which the 400 school children of Ambler were In line, carrying American flags. They marched in siugle file through the opera house, passing Governor Hastings on. 'the stage. He shook the hand ot every child in the line. lovertior Hasting's speech today was quite an elaboiute one. He quoted largely from the reports of the state agricultural department to show that agriculture, all things considered, still holds its place as the leading and most alttnl.de brunch of human employment in Pennsylvania. In referring to the present low price of wheat he contend ed that the responsibility lay in the inexorable law of supply and demand and not In the currency question as has been charged by some advocates of free silver, lie presented statistics to show tbut the reut increase In rail road facilities had brought larger qualities ol wheal l'n.jn the west and also to show (hut the stringency of the limes hud resulted in u reduction of the consumption of the grain. The recent reports thai the Russian wheat is it failure, he suid. titer ted the price the world over and has created a demand for America's surplus wheat. The price of w heat, he suid. has udvauced about thirteen cents a hushed in the last thir ty days. Coiitintiiiig. he said: i have mentioned these facts to you be cause the u-hoiale of cheap money tire telling AmeriiHii faiiueis that the decline in the price of aKileiiltuial products hus kept pace with the decline of silver and that on advance in the price of silver will lead to an V lvalue In ihe price of farm products. There is no similarity between the price of sliver mid the price of farm product that could possibly muse the one to Influence I he other, as a careful study of the question Indisputably shows and the facts which 1 have mentioned Is the best refutation of the argument. During ihe last thirty days wheat has advanced 13 cents a bushel anil silver, during that time, has been steadily declining.. Thirty days axo wheat was worth ft! cents u busluV and the silver dollar was worth S3 cf-nts. Today wheat is worth 7"i cents a bushel and the silver dollar Is worth but a shade over ."a cents. Overproduction has reduced the price of Fllver. Restricted production In one wheat growing country has ad vanced the price of wheat. When all lines of Indust rj; and commercial pursuits are prosperou the farmer is also prosperous. All our varied business Interests are so mutually dependent upon each othei' that the prosperity of one Is the benefit of all, and a blow stricken ut any one leading branch of Industry has Its depressing in fluence upon all. The fanner wants a good market for his surplus products and he always has it when the neighboring mill or factory is running full time mid paying good wages. The home market is the American farmers' best market and best friend. That legislation that will revive the Interests of the country is the legisla tion that will most benelit the American farmer. That policy which compels mills and factories to shut down and throws people out of work Is the policy that strikes hardest at the farmer. There are limitations to the luw of stipplv and de mand. There can be no demand where there Is no power or ability to purchase and there can be no supply If there is no product. The Cambria Will Resume. Philadelphia, Oct. 7. It was stated this afternoon at the offices of the Cambria Iron company In thrs city, that the com pany's plant at Johnstown, which shut down today, will resume on Monday. The temporary susiienslon.

SOLUTION OF THE EASTERN QUESTION Russia Will Take 'a Hand Uuless Ar median Reforms Are Carried Out TURKEY BARS OUT THE BANCROFT The American Cruiser Will Not Be Allowed to Pass the Dardanelles. Ureek and Dutch Vessels Are Also deluded" The Troubles in Crete Are Not at an End. New York, Oct. T.--A special dispatch to the Evening Sun from London says: It is learned upon unquestionable au thority that Russia has undertaken to interfere actively In Turkish affairs un less the Porte carries out fully the long delayed Armenian reforms. Eng land and France agree to give their moral support. THE BANCROFT EXCLUDED Constantinople Oct. 7. The an nouncement that the Turkish govern ment had decided not to admit the I'nited States Crluser Bancroft through the Dardanelles has caused more un easiness among Americans. It is said that the government has also decided to exclude the guardshlps of Oreese and Holland, which countries also pro posed to have a ship stationed In the Uosphorus as a guardshlp and to furnish men to guard their legations In rase of emergency. It should be added, however, that the I'nited States Oovernment Is not known to have pre sented through the United States Min ister, Mr. Alexxander W. Terrell, a for mal demand for the passage of the Bancroft or any other United States warship through the Straits of the Dardanelles, and It is recalled that Greece, In 1888. was not allowed to have a guardshlp In the Bosphorus. The exact ground upon which the Turkish government takes its stand lit this case Is not stated, but it is known In official circles here that Russia has objected to the presence In the Bos phorus of United States, Grecian or Dutch guurdshlps. The objections to the presence of extra guardshlps here are said, according to general report, to be based on the Berlin agreement, which excludes from naval represen tation in the Bosphorus any powers who were not a party to that agree ment, and that, therefore, the United States ennnot bo allowed to send a war ship to the Straits of the Dardanelles, although It Is believed that Mr. Ter rell, about a month ago. sent an urgent request to Washington for a United States war vessel. -It was further Intl tnuled that the United States govern ment would insist, by force if neces sary, upon the presence of the Ban croft In the Bosphorus, talcing the ground that such a step would not be an unfriendly act to Turkey, In view of all the clrcumstanecs in the rase, and that the protection of the lives and property of American citizens made the step necessary.. ' The Turkish government has also sent a circular to the different embassies, demanding the right to search foreign vessels passing Constantinople for Ar menians. It Is believed that the powers will not accede to this request, as, up to the present, Armenians who have sought refuge on board of British or French vessels have been protected by the guardshlps here until the vessels on which they had sought refuge sailed tor their destination. CRETAN TROUBLES. , Advices received here from the Island of Crete state that the crisis there is by no meuns ended. The entire popu lation of. the interior of that Island are still under arms, and their leaders have announced that they will renew hostilities unless the Turkish garrisons' are withdrawn from Crete. This has caused a renewal of the excitement, and the situation hus once more as sumed a most threatening uspeet. It Is believed that the Turkish govern ment will insist upon maintaining its garrisons In Crete, and that Turkey In this ipatter will have the support of the powers who recently brought about what was looked upon as being a set tlmeiit of the Cretan difficulties by compelling the Porte to grant nearly all the reforms demanded by the Insur gents and giving them a sort of local self-government which was looked upon us being satisfactory to the In surgent leaders. This fresh demon stration in Crete will, in all probability, bring about further trouble and post pone again a dellnite settlement of the Kaslern question. GOODMAN ELECTED. The Young Ncruntnn Fireman Is Hon ored at Johnstown Convention. Special to The Tribune. Johnstown, Oct. 7. The banquet ten dered to the visiting firemen by the Johnstown executive committee was one of the largest and best arranged ever held in the history of the associa tion. It was spread in the draughting room of the Johnson works in Moxham, a cuburb of Johnstown. The party consisting of eight hundred persons were conveyed to the place in twenty five special cars. The room in which the tables were set was one hundred and fifty feet by two hundred and fifty feet without a post or pillar. Three hundred of Johns town's prominent ladies waited on the tables at the banquet. At 11.30 the par ty returned to the city proper and con tinued their sport into the early morn ing. The Pittston crowd, with their loud fish horns and heavy cow bells, made hideous noises which caused much dis comfort to the quiet Johnstown citi zens. This morning at 9 o'clock the convention was called to order and af ter the reading of a few reports the election of officers was proceeded with. It was continued at 11.45 and the con vention adjourned till 1.30 this after noon to hear the report of the tellers. There being only one candidate for all offices and place of meeting with the exception of vice president, the secre tary was Instructed to cast the ballot In these cases and the result of the election of four vice presidents was then announced. Of the six candidates the four highest were H. C. Hicks, 228; Herbert Heston, 255; Isadore Goodman, 224, and John Steele, 217. The election of Isadore Goodman caused much good feeling among the Scran ton party. Harmony now prevails In the entire membership of the state association. Harvey R. Long was appointed a mem ber of the insurance committee. The convention adjourned sine die. H. P. Swlck, of Jermyn, was appoint ed honorary vice president of Lacka wanna county In the place of Isadore Goodman. Many companies are arriv ing, as many more are expected on the morning trains, and the parade la expected to compare favorbly with any held. The streets are all In good con dltlon, but the weather ia cold. To night the Bcranton party will attend the ball in a body and cheer for their victorious mem tier. HANNA IS CONFIDENT. Deems That Ihe Battle' for McKiulcy Is Prncticilly Won. Canton, O., Oct. 7. M. A. Hanna, came down from Cleveland today nt 6.30 o'clock and left Canton for Chicago at half-past nine, having spent just four hours in discussing the campaign with Major McKlnley. It was Chair man Hnnna's llrst visit here since early last July and Major McKlnley went to the station to meet him. The candi date and the chairman had a long talk and discussed the conduct of the cam paign in all parts of the country. Mr. Hanna repeated his expressions of con fidence in the situation in the east and said that he felt that there would be no further need of his presence there. He deems the fight there already won and thinks nil signs point to a sweep ing victory in the west, but says the work must be kept up with vigor ev erywhere till the polls close. The cam paign has been conducted on the broad lines laid down by Major McKlnley shortly after his nomination and Mr. Hanna expressed the highest admira tion for the political sagacity as well as the "splendid and effective" speeches of Major McKlnley. The speaking campaign Is to be car ried on more vigorously than ever In all so-called doubtful states and a good deal of active work for the south was mapped out by Major McKlnley and Mr. Hanna. Mr. Hanna does not ex pect to visit Canton again till after the election. DOES NOT FAVOR SILVER. Chief Arthur ot the International Brotherhood ot Locomotive Engi neers Delines His Position. New York, Oct. 7. The Republican national committee has discovered that a circular is being secretly distributed among railway employes and labor or ganizations generally which Is de signed to give the impression that P. At. Arthur, grand chief engineer of the International Brotherhood of Locomo tive Engineers favors the free and un limited coinage of silver. The circular having been brought to the attention of N. B. Scott, of the Republican national committee, he wrote to Mr. Arthur and received the following reply from Cleveland, Ohio: N. B. Scott, Republican National Head quarters, New York. Dear Sir: Your esteemed favor with cir cular enclosed received and read with care. As there may be no misunderstanding concerning my attitude toward the two po litical parties, whatever I say must be accepted as coming irom an individual, not as the executive officer of the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engineers. About two years ago a gentleman called upon Mr. Sargent and me at the Ulbon House In Cincinnati and read to us what purported to be a petition .to congress. After listening attentively to the reading of the documents, he asked me If I would sigh it. I did so and thought no more about It until the past two months, when I find It Is being circulated and used for po litical purpose. I understood at the time that It wait to be presented to congress asking for the enactment of laws In the In terest of labor. I cannot say whether the present circular Is a true copy of the one read to me at that time. I will say, however, that I am not in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of sliver and intend to vote for McKlnley regardless of what may have been said or done in the past. Kespectfully yours, P. 11. Arthur, Q. C. E. HEAVY DEMOCRATIC LOSS. Florida Election Returns Also Indi cate a Very Light Vote. Jacksonville. Fla., Oct 7.

STATE ELECTION IN GEORGIA The Democrats Victorious by a Majority of More Than 20,000. THE POPULISTS ARE KNOCKED OUT The Unterrified Are Winners Even at the Home of Tom Watson. Chairman Cunningham, of the Populist Committee Prefers to Await tho Official Returns. . Atlanta, C.a., Oct. 7. The polls throughout the state closed at 6 o'clock and from bulletins received. Indications are that the majority for Atkinson (Dem.) for governor will be not Ices than 30,000. Hon. A. S. Clay, chair man of the Democratic state commit tee, says: "It is impossible at this hour to predict with any degree of cer tainty the size of the Din.ora:lo ma jority. The count will be slow and it wi'l probubly be midnight, before we ran get any more satls'.viory infor mation than Is contained in the tele grams received by me from Democratic loaders in almost every county in the Mate. Almost without exception they irport that the report Is satisfactory and that seven out of ever ten'report an Increase over the vote of two years n go. At this hour it looks as If the majority will be not less than 30,ou0." Hon. John D. Cunningham, chairman of the Populist state committee, does not concede the state as yt, but nays that he prefers to await the official re turns. "The ticket Is a long one," said he, "nnd the count will be elovr and It is n.y opinion that when the result is ai.nounced it will be found that there have been a great many surprises. Ours Is -the quiet vote and there hat been very little demonstration about our strength. Even if It should develop that our ticket is not elected it will be found that the other has won by a mere scratch, though I do not by any means concede the result." ' The vote In Atlanta ia very much lighter than expected. The registration in this county Is 12,000. but the vote will probably not exceed 7,000. Atkin son's majority In this county will prob ably be about 1,000. Reports from Ma con Indicate a majority of about 1.000 In that county, while reports from Sa vannah and Augusta, indicate a ma jority of about 3,000 in each of those counties. The state can be reported as absolutely certain Democratic by more than 20,000, with the probability of the majority exceeding 80.000. Atkinson' majority two years ago was 24,000. IN WATSON'S TERRITORY. Augusta, Oa.( ' Oct. 7. The Demo cratic majority In Richmond county will be over 3.000.. Reports Indicate that the Democrats have carried the tenth district, which Is the stronghold of Populism In Georgia. Thomas E. Watson, Populist candidate for vice president, lives at Thomson, in this district. Macon, Ga.. Oct 7. In the state elec tion today, this. Bibb county, gave At kinson (Dem.) about 600 majority over the Populists. The county usually gives 3,000 majority for the Democrats. The Populists made gain on account of the prohibition question, which was the main plank of their platform. In dications point to a Democratls victory In the state, but at a greatly reduced majority. Two-thirds of the negro rote was for the Democrats. Atlanta, Ga.. Oct. 7. Reports to the Constitution from all parts q the state Indicate that Atkinson's majority for governor will exceed 35,000, with the probability that his majority will go over 40.000. The majority for the re mainder of the state ticket will largely exceed that of Atkinson, the probabil ity being that It will go beyond 50,000, while Atkinson's majority will be from 12.000 to lii.OUO larger than received by hlin two years ago, when it was 24,000. CROW DECLINES TO WITHDRAW. The Latest Phase of the Philadelphia Political Muddle. Philadelphia, Oct. 7. James L. Miles, the Republican nominee for sheriff today announced hU withdraw al fioin the candidacy. This move is the result of a request to this effect that was made upon Mr. Miles and Alexander Crow, jr., the MrKinley citi zen's and Democratic nominee for sheriff, by a committee of prominent Republicans in order that a new Re publican candidate for the olflce should be named. Mr. Crow, however, declines to withdraw. The Republican sheriff' convention will shortly be reconvened for the pur po of selecting a new nominee. Fusion at Parkersburg. Parkersburg, W. Va., Oct. 7. The con ference between the Democratic and Pop ulist leaders of West Virginia, which be gan here yesterday, resulted today In . fusion on the national ticket, the Populists naming H. T. Houston, of Alderson, and Colonel James Basil, of Weston, as elec-tor-at-l;ire, the Demacratlc nominees to be withdrawn. Grover at Greenwich. Greenwich, Conn., Oct. 7.
