21,200 Miles.
r&Iibes His Tour in Good jHealth
end Spirits?Made His Last Speech
at Home of Senator Piatt.
O^TECiO, N. Y., Nov. 2.?'Theodore
Roosevelt, Republican candidate for
vjco president, completed to-night at
this point one of the most remarkable
campaigns ever made by a candidate of
any party in the United States. In
eight weeks he has visited twenty-four
states of the Union, made 673 speeches,
traveled 21,209 miles; visited 367 towns
and cltle3 and talked to what is estimated
to bo 3,COO,000 people. This record
includes more speches, more inlfes traveled
and more territory covered than
that of all the other candidates for
President or vice president of the United
States of all the parties for the last 100
years with the exception of the record
made by William J. Bryan in 1S96, and
It exceeds Mr. Bryan's record, which
was 559 speeches made and 19,000 miles
Good Health and Spirits.
This wonderful campaign was finished
by a two weeks tour of the state of
New York during which the candidate
traveled 2,253 miles, through thlrty eren
counties and made 120 speeches,
the majority of them from the rear pl&ttnrrv,
tV,r? tnln Mr ' Rnnwnlf finish
ed this tour in excellent health and good
spirits and, as he sold to-night:
"With a slightly weakened voice but
able to go on with the campaign a couple
of weeks more."
The last day of this campaign Included
eight stops between Jamestown, In
Chatauquacounty.and inclusive of Owego,
In Tioga county. The stops to-day
varied from two hours in duration at
Olean to ten minutes at other points.
He finished to-night at Oswego, the
home of United States Senator Thomas

By President and Mrs. McXinley by
Dining With Family of the Minister
Who Married Them.
CANTON, O.. Nov. 2.?President and
Mrs. McKlnley Joined a party of friends
and neighbors at a dinner party this
evening at the home of Miss Buckingham,
a daughter of the minister who
married them, with whom they have
! kept up an Intimacy since their young !
! days. Judge and Mrs. Day were among j
the guests.
There were the usual number of callers
at the Mckinley home to-day, but
there was nothing of special significance
In the day's doings, so far as the
public Is concerned. There was a heavy
volume of official business to engago
the attention of the President, as well
as of the clerks and secretary. Among
those who called during the day were
Superintendent and Rev. John Locke,
chaplain of the Intermediate penitentiary
at Mansfield. Both are old friends
and their visit was of a social nature.
James Boyle, consul to Liverpool, who
was Mr. McKlnley's private secretary
while he was governor and during the
campaign of '9t?, reached the city this
evening, to pay his respects. He 'came
to the United States to vote. While In
the city, Mr. Boyle will be the guest of
Postmaster George B. Frease.
As Governor Atkinson Continued His
Speech ? Succcssful Republican
"Round-up" in Roane County.
Special Dispatch to the Intelligencer
SPENCER. W. Va., Nov. 2.-Goverr.or
George Wesley Atkinson spoke here
to-day to 1,800 voters. The court house
was too small to accommodate the
crowd and a platform was extemporize!
on the outside and seats were arranged
for a part of the audience. Hundreds
of people stood for more than two
hour? while the governor discussed all
of the l>sues Involved In the campaign.
H?.? took up all the points claimed by
the Democrats, one by one, and showed
the fallacy of all of them to the satisfaction
of the large and attentive audience
which contained a goodly number
of Democrats.
One remarkable feature of the occasion
was that the audience was much
larger at the close of his lengthy address
than a.t the beginning. Hundreds
" 'tern embraced the opportunity to
shake hands with our able governor at
the close of his remarks. To-day dem
onstrated the fact that the voters of
lioane county arc satisfied with the
present administration and while the
Political gathering was practically the
"round-up" of the campaign, yet It wan
the largest witnessed In Roane county
at any time during the year.

NEWARK, N. J., Nov. 2.?When the
work of th<> campaign came almost to a
close to-day, National Committeeman
Franklin Murphy, chairman of the New
Tersey committee, "Issued the following
"We have made a very thorough canvass
of Mew Jersey and have carefully
Investigated the conditions In all mictions
of thi? state that are considered
any way doubtful and the result of the
canvas* awures us of n. majority fur
McKlnley of at hast 40.000 to f.0,000. The
li'-'publlcan majority In the legislature
will probably be about forty-five, which, {
of course, will secure the re-election of ^
Senator Sewell In the United States senate."

upon his return from work last night to

Short Interviewed.
David L. Short, who executed the will
)f M/. Rice, the one in which the mill
onalre bequeathed the bulk of his for;une
to Albert F. Patrick, to-day for the
Irst time consented, to be Interviewed
regarding the Incidents leading up to
the execution of the document.
To a reporter Short said:
"I went to Mr. Rice's apartments at
the request of Mr. Patrick. Patrick
jent a messenger to my office. Patrick
said to me: 'You are wanted up town to
jxecute some papers.'
"Morris Meyers went with me. He
went as a notary, I as a'commissioner
Df deeds. When we reached the apartments,
Jones let us in and escorted us
to Mr. Rice's room. Mr. Rice was sitting
at his desk and from a sort of cabinet
compartment that was over It drew
out his papers. He said to both of us:
'This is my will, gentlemen. I have
sent for you to witness my signature.'
Confidence in Meyers.
"Ho asked Meyers to read one particular
clause or paragraph of the will. I
do not remember what the subject matter
of the clause was. I did not pay
any attention to It. Mr. Rice seemed
to have much conlldence in Meyers. He
consulted him about his affairs frequently.
I did not know the contents
of the will. The will was not read
aloud. I frequently executed papers
tor Mr. Rice. I executed the assignments
to Patrick."
Mr. Short further said that he never
talked to Meyers or Patrick about the
will or assignments. He hail known
Mr. Rice for about a year before his
death, nor had Mr. Rice said anything
to him about another will.
On Rice's Face Six Months Before He
Died?Color of Tablets Given Enter
Into tho Case.
NEW YORK. Nov. 2.?Assistant District
Attorney Osborne In a further
statement given out this afternoon says
that Dr. Bull, the surgeon, performed
an operation on Rice's face about six
months before he died. As an antiseptic
wash he prescribed bl-chloride of
mercury. Mr Osborne said this had a
bearing on the case, as Jones has confessed
that Patrick gave Rice grayish
tablets. The tablets prescribed by Dr.
Bull were of a grayish color. Mr. Osborne
further said that Prof. Wltthaus
knew nothing of this In making his analysis.
Dr. W. T. Bull, who performed the
operation on Rice's face, said later:
"I was called In by Rice's physician.
Dr. J. Milton Mabbott, of 10 Fifth avenue,
to perform a slight operation on
Rice's face. The operation was not serious
and did not even require ether."
Miss R. J. Evans. Dr. Bull's head
nurse, who had charge of the operation,
Diluted the Tablets.'
"I did use bl-chloride of mercury, but
I took away every tablet not used. I
diluted tho tablets and bathed Mr.
Rlce'n face with the solution. These
tablets were bluish in color and not
gray, although some one not acquainted
with them might say they were of a
irravlsh tlnen."
Dr. Hull continual by raying:
"There are white tablets of this sort,
but I never use them. I .myself, am
not very well acquainted with tho effrcts
the tablet would have when taken
Internally. I know they would cause
extreme conation of the bowels and
severe Inflammation. I do not know
whether they would kill a man unlesu
takrn In large quantities.
"The tablets are sold at drug stores
Uko iK-adajcho druiw and other artlcleo,
without any rod tape ,and In that way (
they could bo easily secured. As a face
wash they aro perfectly harmless."
Fred B. House, counsel for Jones an#
Patrick, accompanied by former Assistant
District Attorney Gordon Battle,
went to Bolievue hospital this afternoon
and were admitted to the prison
ward to see Jones. They talked with
.Tonos fnr a. hnlf hOUr.
? I
When leaving Mr. House said he called
simply to visit Jones, seeing that he
was In sucK trouble, lie called him "a
poor young man, In hard luck." "When
asked why Mr. Battle was with him,
ho evaded the quest Jon and positively
refused to say whether Mr. Battle wouid j
be a counsel in the ease.
Mr. Battle would not talk at all.

In Business Nearly Over?Iron and
Steel Forging Ahead?Americans
Placing Shops in Foreign Countries?Heavy
Orders for Shoes.
NEW YORK. Nov. a2.?R. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade to-morrow
will say:
The period of suspense Is nearly over.
Business has been longing for :i free
field in which to lean forward, but re
stricted buying largely to wants for immediate
consumption. Some evidence
appears of willingness to take speculative
chances in the movement of a few
standard goods, notably Iron and steel.
The actual resumption of operations in
the anthracite coal fields has added
largely to the working force, and closing
down of a few small steel plants
is only In the nature of concentrating
operations at more advantageous points,
and has not much reduced the number
of men employed. The weather In some
sections has favored business, but at
New Yorlc has been unseasonable, accounting
for much of the loss of 15.3
per cent in bank clearings here, as compared
with last year, though the week
shows a Rain of 20.3 per cent over 1898.
Encouraging Reports From Iron.
Encouraging signs multiply in the
Iron industry. Strength in Bessemer
and grey forge at Pittsburgh shows
that the recent Increase In activity of
finished forms has at last affected the
market for raw material. Improvement
in domestic buying of pig is the more
noticeable because of decrease in exports.
Structural shapes continue in
urgent requirement, plates advancing
with active demand from shlp-bullders
and w*lth talk of a pool to sustain the
price. Par iron would sell readily at
former priccs, but holders grow stubborn.
Reports are current that Ameri
v.ui? wuuerua nave conir;ic;ea lor machine
shops In Bremen and numerous
bridRes abroad, Including some In Africa.
Billets at Philadelphia cost 520,
which does not look like a reduction
In steel rails. Buyers In these lines decided
not to .wait for election to place

with a total of 7,804.300 pounds. This Is
largely for prompt consumption, and
consequently makes poor comparison
with the same week last year, when

Born in Ohio and Made His Fortune ;
in Gotham?Member of Many of 1
the Leading Social Societies.
NEW YORK, Nov. 2.?William L. !
Strong, the last mayor of the old city 1
Df New York, died suddenly at 3 a. m.,
at his residence In this city. !
The illness of Mr. Strong had been
kept from his political friends. It was (
known among his business associates
In the wholesale dry goods district, but (
no one suspected that his condition was ]
alarming. Mr. Strong had not been at (
tils place of business for several days. (
Mr. Strong took-an artlvc part In the j
present campaign, and' It is said that
tils political labors, combined with his
attempts to retain supervision over his ?
business afTalrs, In the face of Impaired I
liealth, brought about the Illness that <
resulted In his death.
Had Been in Poor Health.
Mr. Strong had been In poor neau.\
for about six weeks.* He ate supper 1
as usual last night and did not com- J
plain of any pain or weakness at that ^
time. About 11 o'clock he retired to .
his bed-room, assisted by two nurses, j
who had been in attendance from the
beginning of his Illness. About an ,
hour after he had gone to bed, he awoke j
and told one ofc the nurses that he was 1
very weak. He asked to have his wife j
and son, Major Putnam Bradlec '
Strong, called. They soon came to the i
room. When Mr. Strong saw his wife
he put his arm about her and said: "I <
am very, very weak." 5
Colonel Strong grew a little better, j
and as his condition at that time did
not seem alarming, the physician was not
sent for. His daughter, Mrs. Shattuck
and her husband, were called, ,
however. j
A little before 3 o'clock Mr. Strong ]
seemed to have a decided change for ;
the worse and his physician was has- |
tily_summoned, but he did not arrive '
until after the patient's death.
"William L. Strong was born In Ohio 1
In 1S23, and came to New York when a ;
young man. He found employment with j
different firms until January 1, 1S70,
when he organized the firm of "William
L. Strong & Company. The firm soon 1
grew to be one of the prominent business
houses In the city. He also Inter- !
ested himself in banking matters and
was president of the Central National (
Active Interest In Politics.
Mr. Strong took an active interest In i
politics ajicl was one of the leaders of
the reform movement in this city, anil j
wns elected mayor on the Republican- !
Citizens' Union ticket in 1S94. He wai J
the last mayor of the old city of New !
Tork before consolidation with Brook- ;
lyn and the other boroughs composing ^
the present city of New Tork.
At the time of his death Mr. Strong
was a member of a number of societies, j
including the Ohio Society, American j
Fine Arts Society, American Museum of ,

Association and American Geographical j

XEW YORK, Nov. C.?At a mass 1
meeting in Madison Square Garden, In
1S34 a non-partisan committee of seventy
was appointed to organize the op- |
position to Tammany hall, to frame a
platform and select candidates for office.
and It was this committee thnt
selected Mr. Strong to run for mayor on
the reform platform. The nomination |
was accepted, and the candidate entered
Into the campaign with .vigor ,
and determination.
His opponent was Hugh J. Grant. 1
and the contest was a bitter one. The
outcome was the election of Mr. Strong
by a plurality of 47.1S7.
Eventful Administration.
The administration of Mr. Strong
was an eventful one. It was he who ?
appointed Colonel Waring commissioner
of street cleaning and in spite of '
periods of strong opposition within and
outside the party kept him In the office 1
until the end of the mayoral term. The '
affairs of the police department Mr.
Strong placed In the hands of a board. '
at the head of which was Theodoro '
Roosevelt, whose earlier conferees were
Col. Fred. D. Grant, Major Avery D.
Andrews and Mr. Parker.
The mayor was often accused of
wasting: money on Improvements. Ufa
Invariable reply was that wherever he
spent a dollar ho "had a dollar's worth
to show for it."
Mr. Strong was avowedly Independent
In his views on city politics. Ir.V- the
municipal campaign of 3S97. which resulted
in the return of Tammany to
power, he took the stump for Seth Low
as against Gen. Benjamin F. Tracy, the
regular Republican candidate.
After this election he virtually retired
from active politics, on account of
falling health. He spoke for Colonel
Roosevelt, however, In 1S9S, and had
since been Interested and influential in
the councils of the Independent wlm? of
the Republican party of this county.

CHICAGO, Nov. 2.?Hon. W. J.
Bryan, Democratic presidential candl!
date, to-night gave out the following
j statement in the form of nn interview:
i "The Republican campaign has been

Ingmen and the Republicans are com|
polled to confess that a large propori
tlon of the labor vote will be cast for

general doctrine of equal rights to all

Democratic party by the fact that our
party Is opposed to government by In'

to represent the wage-earners.
Strength Among Farmers.
"The Republicans are now hoping to
hold their strength among the farmers,
I but they have no policy which will ben1
eflt the farmer. The man who makes
I his living on the farm Is the victim of
all the vicious legislation for which the
[ Republican party Is responsible, and
receives none or tne Denenis conrerreu
by special legislation upon corporations
and syndicates. The fanner
pays more than his share of the taxes
I and receives less than his share of the
I consideration of government. Rcpub[
lican policies have lessened the value
of farm lands, Increased the proportion
o< tenants and have driven the
farmers' sons away from the farm,
thus Intensifying the struggle for existence
in the cities. The farmers are almost
unanimously opposed to the trusts
and they can have no sympathy with
the imperialistic policy of the RepubI

"The poor are coming to the Democratic
.party, because they want a
chance in the race for life and many of
| the well-to-do are coming because they
realize that the Democratic party affords
better protection to honest
, wealth than the Republican party.
"The Republican party Is under the
control of those who seek advantage
through governmental favoritism and
grow rich by the exploitation of citizens
at home and subjects abroad. It
is a flght between Democracy, on the
one side, and plutocracy on the other,
and Democracy appeals to tne judgment
and to the conscience of those
who are willing to let live as well as
to live."

high school team at the Island ball park
yesterday afternoon. The Linsly team
was handicapped by having seven men
on the disabled list At the game between
the same teams on Rough Rider
"Field Day" the score was a tie.
The game, as was expected, was a
walk-over for the Martin's Ferry team.
Their heavy backs waded through the
Linsly line at will, making distance on
almost every down. The prettiest play
of the game was made in the flrst half,
when Dixon broke away after a scrimmage
and started for the goal with no
one In front at him. Coldwell chased
and got him ofC his feet at the five yard
line. The whistle blew before the teams
lined up for play and the goal was
saved. Martin's Ferry made all lta
