CiiAitLi3TO.v? W. Va., Oct. 17.?The McKinley meeting marked a red letter day in Charleston's history. Never bo? fore was such a magnificent demonstration of Kepublicanism and patriotism mailo in our city. Thousands of visitors woro expected and thousands came. At an early hour in the morning the Btroots were thronged and overy incoming boat and train added to tho already immense crowd. It is impossible to form an estimate with any degree of accuracy of the number of people in the city, but it was full of thorn and from 10 o'clock to tho hour appointed for tho speaking mounted clubs, uniformed clubs, footmen, ladies were on our streets, walking, talking, marching, counter-marching and having a good time generally, while the air was fillod with inueic from numerous bands. There was music evervwhero; everybody was in a good humor; the weather could not liavo been inoro auspicious; everything combined to make the occasion the grandest success over witnessed at West Virginia's capital, j Thn rrnuril WSH fWithlliintie. but WI1S tt 1 moat orderly one, which fact excited much favorable coinmout from the citizens, irrespective ot their political aitiliations. Most of the ljc.it business houses and many rosidoiicos wore appropriately decorated with flage and , bunting, and the national colors wero I conspicuously all along the line, together witb many otber banners bearing appropriate mottoes. Governor McKinley arrived shortly after oleven o'clock. Ho waa met at the depot by the oacort committee, accompanied by bands, the Young Men's Klaino club and other Republican clubs of this city, who escorted him to the residence of Major J. E. Dana, who entertained him daring his stay. The parade was tho biggest affair of ita kind ever seen in Cfiarleston. Capt. John F. Palmer acted as chief marshal with o stalT of efficient aides, and everything was managed efficiently. At tho park, the place of speaking, plenty of eatables wore furnished for everybody. .Major ' VcKlnley was introduced by Col. T. B. Swann in a brief and appropriate address, and his appearance was greeted by a storin of applause, lie is a most earnest and entertaining speaker and while much waa expected of him, moro wn9received. For about two hours ho gave tho plainest, moat forciblo and at the same timo most entortainingoxposition of the groat principles of the liepublican party, particularly upon the great question of tho tariff, ever beard in tnis mate, no neiu nig auuience almost spell-bound and was frequently interrupted by outburst!) of applause that showed the (treat truths enunicated by him had gone homo; that the seeds be hnd sown had fallen on fertile Hoil. At the close of his speech, Hon. S. B. Elltins, secretary of war, was introduced by Dr. 1). Mayer, and ho also was moat enthusiastically recoived. He spoke briefly hut to the point, and his audionce would gladly have listened to him longer, but the aftornoon was drawing to a close and for this roason ho abbreviated his remarks and the vast audience reluctantly dispersed. The entire allhir rellecta great credit upon nil connected with it, except that no arrangements woro made for tlio accommodation of representatives of the press. It shows that the people are aroused?that the Republicans of Kanawha aro thoroughly in earnest, and that hor majority of four years ago may be expected from hor on November 8, for Harrison and Davis and the entire ticket, and perhaps itmoybo increased. Gov. McKinloy loft this evening for TliintimrtAn urhnrn tin will unnnlr (A. night and ro from thoro to W heeling. Secretary Klkins expects to remain in Charleston two or three days.

Tho greatest political meeting ovor held in tho toeond city was tho 0110 this oveniutr addressed by Ohio's giftod governor, Hon. W. McKinley, at tho wigwam. Even.during tho lato state convention tliis structure has not held beneath its roof such an assemblage as tho 0110 to-night. Governor McKinley spoke at Charleston this afternoon to an immense uudienco estimated at ton thousand, after which ho came here ovorthoC. it 0. in .Senator Camden's privato car, which Mr. Camdon tendered him during his stay in West Virginia. No street parade was attompted, as the Uomocrats had previously ar ranged for ono thin evening, but the distinguished son of Ohio was welcomed by aD immenco throng nt tho nation who escorted him to tho wigwam. When he mounted tho stage, pandemonium raged for eeveral minuloB, the six thousand occupant* of the building wearing thomselvei out with cheering. When order win restored, the governor wai introduced to the iminenjo throng by Gordon O'Bierna in a noat throo minute speech. McKinlny, though weary from travel and without a bite to pat since noon, made a magnificent ninoty minuto speech. He first touched on tho money question, which he handled as no other public speaker has everdonoin this section, lie showed np what the abolition of the ton per cent tax on ttato banks would result in, a currency secured bv ono dollar in four. On the tariff his words were listened to with great attention by tho audience, and aftor It was over uiany Democrats were hoard to say they wcro not in favor of the Democratic free trade doc trino as laid down-?by tho Chicago platform. Mo proved the Democratic party to bo for free trade by its refuial, by over a two-thirda volo at Chicago, to infort a clause in ill platform favoring the protection of labor. On tho unconstitutionality of tho bill which bears his name ho citod tho decision of our highest judicial body, tho supremo court, and roierrod to tho action of tho Congress of 178tf, of which Madilou was u member, in passing a protective tarifT bill, the second act of legislation mado by tho nation. Ho cited statistics showing; tho increase of our trade since the tariU law of 135.(0 went into operation iulS91, amounting to SI,800,000,000. Tho governor was very eloquent throughout and was applauded again and again. His speech to-night has been tho greatest boom to Jlcpublicanism ever experienced in Huntington. Hon. Josiali Patterson, the Memphis, Tonn., congrossmnn,(Democratic) spoke to a fair sized audionco at the opera houso to-night. Numbers, howevor, loft during his speech and went to wig-wain to hear Ohio's eloquent son. TI?o Vltt*hur?h Vlaw of IU 1'Uttburgh Commercial QastUt of Monday.

V* * | TIN PLATE FACTORY Among the Industries to be Established at Fairmont. NEGOTIATIONS NOW PENDING Between tho Development Com^uy and an English Syndlcate-The Wonderful Growth of a Town where Calamity Shriokers are Not Welcome? Everybody Prosperous and No Workmen Out of Employment, AVhile Now Protected Industries Are Being Established?Why MacCorklc's Speech Fell Plat and Wilson's Free Trade Isn't Popular. West Virginia is not an inviting field for the calamity shriokors this year, particularly for that class of calamityitos who call themselves Democratic "tariff reformers, and affect to believe, and try to make others believe, that the country is going to ruin under tho Republi ?if? -r can puiil'v ui jnuicuntwu. uucivtoi these moa men go in West Virginia they are greoted with evidences of what the American tariff has dono (or tho industrial development of tho etato. Kverywhoro the work of development ia in progress?mines are opening, factories arc building, and prottctcd industries of all kinds aro springing into existence. Few, if any,idlo men aro seen, and the state scorns to bo enjoying an ora of prosperity. In some counties more than in others this development is visible, but in all its effects are so marked that tho calamity shriekcr is nnable to mako any impression. This is why the scholarly statosman, the lion. William U Wilson, and his free trade theories are unpopular this year, and why the prince of demagogues, "Col." William A. MacCorkle, who wants to bo governor of West Virginia, is making little headway in his calamity campaign. It is hard work to mako a prosperous peopio believe they are on the vcrgo of ruin, or to convince tho working man who has plenty of employment at good wages that he is a little better than a pauper. Undor tho circumstances it is nnfc to hn aunnnqrul thnfc t.ha nnonlo of West Virginia are in a humor to liaton in patience to the sort of campaign oratory the Democratic stumpers are attempting to indict on them iu the present contest. A CASE is POINT* Last Saturday night I hoard the Democratic candidate lor governor, Mr. MncCorkle, make his calamity howl at Fairmont. The circumstancos were such <u to impress on everybody's mind the truth expressed above. Sir. MacOorklo addressed himself to a community of jjeople who aro just now experiencing unprecedented prosperity, due to the rocent establishment in their midst of great industries that aro protected by Republican tariff laws; who. by reason of tho investment of capital in these industries, have found it necessary to extend the limits of their town to accommodate the increased population; have witneisod their own growth within abrlof timo from ahum-drum viliugo to a busy manufacturing and mining ccntre, in which everybody has employment and money in his pockets. " Standing almost in tho light of blazing coke ovens and glass furnaces, Mr. MucCorkto raised his voice and said: "The -McKinloy bill has boen in opora tion lor nearly two years; you navo not had tho prosperity you were promised." No wonder this bold assertion was received iu silence! Every man in the audionco knew how ridiculously untrue the assertion was as to that community, and ovory aiau know just how demagogic was the appoal ho was hoaring. Sir. MacCorklo made no votes in Fairmont. Had Mr. MacCorkle taken tho trouble to mako somo inquiries in tho community he would scarcely liavo dared to malio tho speech ho did in Fairmont, and when Sir. Wileou goes to that prosperous town which is tilled with the Iruita of Itopubllcan protection he will do well to profit by tho experience of thogubernatorial candidato. am object lesson. In no placo in tho state can ono witness a mora striking tariff object lesson than in Fairmont. Headers of tho In nai.KiES'CKK have read in tbesecoluinns in the past a great deal about Fairmont's dovelopment movement, and havo boon kept posted regarding its progress. Unlike most so-called "boom" towns, tho mountain city had a sub tantifll basis lor its movement, licincr in the midst of a wonderfully rich coal territory, which; was being rapidly developed, there was overy prospect that the place would bocome the centro and shipping point of ouo of tho greatest and wealthiest coal and coke regions in tho Union. Tho oponing of now minos and tho building of railroads to opon new territory woro followed by a great influx of newcomers, for this now population homes woro demanded, and it was to supply this demand that the Fairmont i)evolopmont Company was organized. A large tract of land wost of the town was purchased and a city was laid out, with handsome streets and avenues, beautiful residonce ami convoniont factory sltos, and tho work of creating a new Fairmont was begun. Scarcely six months had passed boforo such progress had been mado as to guarantee that the undertaking would prove, not only a financial success for those who had invosted in it, but a success from every other point of viow. Tho first year of the life of the enterprise has not yet expired and the new city is rapidly becoming a realization. NEW INDUSTRIES. 1 had an interesting interview with if- r\ u \f-I.'; Ar a. iilli vnuu w. jjhiiuuuji Buviota>/ vi buu Development Company, in which he sketched briefly the work already accomplished and outlined the futuro prospocts. "We havo succoedod," raid he. "far beyond our moat sanguine expectations. Tho old Fairmont in a thinit of the pait and in it* nlaco is a busy, buatlinE littlo city. Within a very (en- yeara wo will httvo hero a manufacturing city of llrst importance. Already it is becoming n I'onl and coko centro, and although the development i> comparatively in Its Infancy, tho coal and coko ahipmoats from Fairmont aro twenty thousand tons per week. The tonnaire would be a great deal larger but for the car famine. It is impossible to got freight cars sufficient to.enable the coal operators to fill all tlidir orders. "Notwithstanding the short time tho Development Company has been at work it has alroady located'two glass factories, both of which are iioiv in oporatiou on tho company's new uddition, with as many orders for their product as they can rill. One of these works manufactures cut glass and tumblers, tho other fruit jars and bottles. Another glass company desiros to locate hore. I don't know just what arrangements we will make with it. Our oxcellent shipping facilities and cheap fuel enable us to offer extraordinary inducements to manufacturing enterprises." A TIN PLATE MILL. "What of the future?" "The outlook is very oncouraging," \i.rr: replied necremry iucn.iuuey. noms receiving many 'inquiries from manufacturers who desira to locate here. 1 have just roturned from Massachusetts wlioro we ara negotiating with an oxtensivo manufactory of tiro arms to locate on our property. It is one of the best known works of tho kind in tho country. I think wo will get tho concern. Wo are also in correspondence with a firm of iron founders. Their proposition is to establish a large stovo works here. Our famo is also spreading abroad. Here is tho evidence of what wo are doing." As Mr. McKinnoy uttered'this last sentence he showed mo a letter from an English syndicate with which ho is negotiating for tho removal of a large tin plate factory from rt'alcs to Fairmont. The letter, which is signed by one of the beat known llrraB in Great Britain, but which I am not at liberty to publish at this time, states that the tin plate peoplo desire twenty acres of land on which to build llieir factory and thirty acres for dwellings fortlioir workmen, and submits a number of inquiries regarding freight rates, cost of luol, Ac., all of which Mr, McKinnoy said ho believed he could answer satisfactorily. The firm agrees to pledge itself to employ -'60 persons at tho start and 1,000 to' I',000 persons in two or | tbreo years. Thoro is littlo doubt that tho arrangement will bo mado and that Fairmont will soon havo ono of the greatest tin plate factories in tho country, nnd bo one of the first towns to realize that, after all, tho tin plate schedule of the McKinley billjisn't tho farcical affair that Mr. William L. Wilson and our other Democratic anti-protectionists declare it is. I incidentally referred to this fact to Mr. McKinnoy, who, by the way, is a Democrat, and ono of >lr. Wilson's chief supporters, lie smiled as he good-liumorcdly replied: "If wo can get this tin plate mill wo are coins to have it, politics or no politics. Fairmont is forging ahead in the industrial line. Wo are building factories and we intond to build more. Everybody horo is prosperous and happy and there is work for all comers. 1 don't say the protective taritt makes it possiblo, though 1 acknowledge those industries are protocted by tho tariff. It is business with us and we ore not mixing it with our politics. Democrats and Republicans are togotlier in this movement. Our first purpose is to build a manufacturing city hero in this region of inaxhaustiblo resources. \Y lion WO uro buci'ussiui, ua ??i duiui* will bo, people can form thoir own judgments about whether wo can or cannot afford to do without the protective tarifl. I havo my own theories on this point, and they aro not quite so radically freo trade as those of Henry Wattcrson and a few others who would wipe out every vestige of nrotoction." 1 have only outlined some of the things that are being dono in this growing city which depond on protected Industries for its support. I might tell of tho fact that 175 houses have been built since the boom began, of tho work of paving tho streets, the establishment of water works and electric lights, of the railway operations, of the now road' that is to give a through connection with Pittsburg, of tho now mining operations in contemplation, etc., but this is enough for once.

New York, Oct. 17.?Moro than the jisual activity was apparent in and around Republican national hoadquar* tors this morning. The members of executive committee were present and tho reception room was filled with poopla awaiting tho opportunity to bo admitted to tho sanctum upstairs. Robert Lincoln, minister to tlio Court of St. J ami-j; U. S. Senator Eugeno Halo, of Maine; John Brounan, of Iowa, and ex-Congressman Julm It. Lynch, of Mississippi, and Minister E;jan wero among the early visitors and each of them had a Iouk private interview with Chairman Carter. Minister Egan had this to say in regard to recent publications ondeavorincto creato a sensation over an alleged attempt on his part to snub Mr. Blaino nt White Plains: "Being called upon to speak without preparation, I omitted to make the reference that I ought to have made to tho manly and patriotic' manner in which Mr. Blaine stood by mo throughout all the attacks made upon me in the Chilean affairs. One of the greatest compensation for the dillk-ult times 1 had in Chile was the fact that my entire course of action was cordially approved by Mr. Maine, as well as by the President and all the members of the cabinet. From Maino to 'Jcxas there is nono who' has a higher respect and regard tor Mr. lllaine than I have. In fact my sentiments towards him amount to affection. Therefore the statement that I intended to in any way disparage Mr. Blaine is mado out of the whole cloth.
