"I hae come to see McKlnley," and
Mi. Pent use went no luithei than to
Intimate In a vague way that the possi

loi Goveinoi Hastings had led to theli
Canton tilp. Those Who undci stand
the mjstetlos ol Pennsylvania, politics
will be better able to compiehend the

who suuounu the pieident-elect.
Both Mr. Quay and Ml. Penioso weto

the Texas visitors left tho city.
Majoi C. W r. Dick, who Is some
times spoken of as Mi. McKlnlej 's pri

land to consult with the ptesldent
tlect on the senatoiial situation In Ohio
Majoi Dick declaies positively that
theie Is nothing in the pilvate seete

Mi. Hanna on national committee af
falis He thinks that tho governor
ought to name Mi. Hanna, bj all means,
for the acancy to be cieated bj the
lesignatlon of Senatoi Sheiman, but on
this point theie aie wide ditletences of

In favoi of an extia session of the legls
lutuie foi the puipose of electing a sen

tuted Mi. Hanna might find it difllcult
to win. It Is haul to saj' Just what will
be done, but at least It Is evident that
Ohioans piopose to Indulge in a gieat

of the mattei Is possible.
A QUIET SUNDAY.
This was a quiet Sundaj- at the Mc

and went to chuieh Webb Hajes, a
son ot the late piesldent, dined with
Mi. and Mis. McKlnley and took a
dihe with them in the afternoon, le
turnlng home on an early evening tiain.
Now that Senator Sheiman has ac
cepted the portfolio of state the rest of
the cabinet seems to center on a see
ietaiy of the -tieasuiy. Chailes Em
