The chilly air, which hat come a? an

positively keon at Duluth when Gov- (
ernor McKinloy ntepped from the train .
which brought him from St. PauL Hut 1

of the autumnal blasts. (

G. A. R. votorans.
Mayor Lewis presided at the meeting (
and before presenting Governor McKinley,

and cheers, which continued for <
several minutes.
In i)is addross Gov. McKinloy recited
the effects "of the new tariff law"
on Minnesota lumbermen, as compared .
with those under tho law of 1S90. While
tho latter was in effect common laborers J
in lumber camps wero paid from $20 to '
$40 a month; now thov are glad to do f
tho same work for from $12 to $10. (

lettor written by ex-Socrotary W. C.

Mr. Whituoy explains why ho did
not accopt oithor tho chairmanship or
a membership on the state committee,
i buiiiui; niui it wna not. irom an luuiapu-1
eition to asaiat in the campaign, but
from reasouB puroly private.
.Mr. Whitney aaid that ho might crit- ,
iciao in detail the manner in which tho ,
parly had duriug tho past year performed
tho tru8t8 given to ita koepiug,
but tho proaoat was not tho time for a ,
discuasion of ditloroucos. I
.Mr. Whitney said that ho would not ,
attempt to dieguiso tho fact that there
is u ureal deal of dissatisfaction in tho
party ranks. Ho said thnt many considered
the state organization management
narrow and arbitrary. He did
not propoao to quarrel with auy ono (
for manifesting this fooling, but ho
wished to remind all that tho policy of 1
tho Republican leaders had been ovon
more dictatorial.
To those who wero dispoiod to foar
i tho dominance of Senator Hill in national
politics, Mr. Whitney said:
"Noither Governor Ilill nor any ono
olso will bo able to socuro two-thirds of
tho votes in tho noxt national convention
unloss ho stands clearly for tho intellectual
and moral iaBues of tho party,
or haa pro-eminont qualifications lor

An latoreatiug Account of the Yearly
Meeting at Milt water Meeting Uoiaao.
Tho Ohio yoarly meeting of the soci- (
oty of Friends has jait closod its session
at tho Stillwater inectiug house, two
miles east of Barnesville.
Tha mooting calls together represon- (
tative Frionds from mauv parts of this
couotry and from Canada, and is ono i
of tho most largely attended and
important gatherings of tho society in
the United States. At tliis meeting
there were tevoral hundred visiting
Friends, Pennsylvania and Iowa Bonding
the largest delegations.
Their manner of conducting their
meetings, both for worshiy and for tho
transaction of business, is unique and
in striking contrast to that of othor de- t
Tho meetines for worship in "First"
and "Foruth" days aro tho only ones J
open to thu public. t
fl.? mAUf lm> ?n Wn nil n ir nr "Pir?f
day," is always largely attended, thoro
being probably five thousand people
proton t on that day this yoar.
Tho targe meeting house,' capnblo of
seating two thousand pooplo, ia devoid
of ornamentation without or within. In
their homes oa in their houso of worship
there is everything for comfort,
| but nothing for outward show, Simplicity
in manners, dress nud living is
anesaeutial part of thoir creod. Their
manner ol conducting worship is dovoid
of all form and ceremony.
Tho house is divided iuto two apartments
by a partition, which on this
occasion is lowered, throwing both
apartments into one room, tho mot altting
on one side of tho houso, tho
women on tho other.
b'outa in tho gallery gave tho writer a
good view of tho congregation. Jiolow
are sober matrons and modest maidens
arrayed in tho plain dresses and bonnets
which are tho distinctive garb of
tho Quakeress, and which remain unchanged
from yoar to year. Aa a rulo
the men are closely shaven and many of
thorn ait with thoir heads covorod
throughout tho mooting.
A solemn silenco porvadoi tho place,
which remains unbroken until "movou
by tho spirit," Benjamin Vale, of Philadelphia,
addressed tho meeting, lio was
followed bv Harvey Haight and Anna
Crawford, both from Canada; Zobedeo
Uainea,superintendent of thoVVeattown
boarding8chool,and a number of others.
Their discourses are without figures of
apoocb and flowers of rhotoric, but are
plain, forcible commonts on scrinture
truths. Strangera often ask, "How can
you tell when -mooting is over?" and
one unaccustomed to tho simple ways of
tho Frionds might roadily he at a loss to
know what waa tbe signal for dismiaaal.
Tho Friend sitting at "the head of the
mooting" on the men's aide shakos
;ho Morisantown mooting to-morrow,
*rbon nddreaaos will bo made by him,
