The President at Manchester.
Notwithstanding the threatening
weather, a vast throng, probably six
tir seven thousand people, assembled at
the railway station Monday morning tu
see and hear the President of the
United States. A small raised platform
was constructed in the first street west
of the passengfer depot and beautifully
About 9:30 a. m., a few minutes after
schedule time, the magnificent special
train of coaches conveying the presi
dential party, arrived, and after a short
delay the President, accompanied' by
Senator Allison, Governot Shaw, Secre
taries Gage, Long and Wilson, Attor
ney General Griggs, and a few others,
made their way through the crowd
from the tTain to the platform.
Governor Leslie M. Shaw briefly in
troduced Mr. McKinley, He said
Introduce to you the President of these
United States, William McKinley.
Mr. McKinley spoke as follows:
bad more than one hundred years of na-.
tional existence. Those years have been
blessed ones for liberty and civilization
No other peoples anywhere have enjoy
ed such marvelous prosperity, or have
made such gigantic progress as the peo
ple of the United States. When the
fathers established this government, the
population was only a little more than a
million in excess of the population of
Iowa to-day. They started with three
million nine hundred thousand of people
and to-day you have two millions and a
half in your own state.
Our lines, indeed, have fallen in pleas
ant places. The ship of state has sailed
uninterrupted on its mission of liberty
and one thing can be said of us for
which we Bhould all give thanksgiving
and praise. This nation has never struck
a blow against humanity, never struck
a blow against liberty, never struck a
blow except for liberty and civilization
and humanity. And I do not think
that we have lost, now that we are sev
enty-Bix millions of people, I do not
think that we have lost our vigor, or our
vim, or our courage or our patriotism.
We are just as strong for country as we
ever were. And we are juBt as sensi
tive for our national honor, and we are
just as determined to
add new glories to
the nation as were those who gave this
government to us.
And this, my countrymen, is not a
partisan government. While parties
control administrations in the presence
of a great national peril or a national
duty, the people are united as one man,
all for the good of the country, and the
people's hearts to-day go out to the sol
diers of the United States who are doing
battle in the Philippines. Your hearts
are with tbenl,your hopes are with them,
and your prayers are with them, and if
I am not mistaken, you would not see,
at whatever the cost of men or money,
our flag dishonored anywhere.
At the conclusion of the speech Miss
Hazel Huene, whose father was a
member of Mr. McKiniey's regiment,
presented to the President an elegant
boquet of roses, and. Miss Florence
Lindsay presented the Womans Belief
Corp's floral offering to the nation's
chief executive. It consisted of an
exquisite masi of American Beauties,
tied with a wide white satin ribbon on
either end of which was inscribed "To
our President from the Dairy City,
Manchester, Iowa, October 16,1899."
Captain J. F. Merry had charge of
the special train and everything was
timed like clockwork. In a few seconds
after the party left the platform, the
presidential special commenced to slow
ly'move out. through the great crowd,
and commenced Its run for Dubuqup,.
