Thsjbk excursions went from Alle gheny county to visit Governor McKin ley, last Saturday. There were six trains and about B,or > people, the del egations being composed of Home stead steel workers, the National Tube Works employes and other iron men of McKeesport and the employes of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg. The last of the special trains bearing the Homestead, Pa., delegation arrived shortly after noon. At 1 o'clock the en tire delegation to the number of 2,c < ac companied by two bands of music, a glee club and several drum corps, rtai ted for the McKinley residence. The city was in holiday attire. All along the line of march the visitors were loudly cheer-, ed and the enthusiasm was enormous. Every department of the Homestead iron works was represented. Mr. Molanthy, the spokesman of the visitors, made a brief speech pledging the support of his fellow workmen to Major McKinley. The latter was greeted v> »th loud cheers and responded at some length to the as sembled workingmen. 50,000. Maine doubled its usual Republican majority, Monday, and gave Power*about sa, c■». Mr. Sewall's own town of Bath, went 3to 1 Republican. Reed, Dingley, Milliken and Boutclle were re-elected to Congrer*. Reed's plurality in his dial. let is 10,389 as against 8,185, two years ago. Reed's vote this year is the largest ever received by a Congressional candidate iu Portland. When it became known that he bad been ) overwhelmingly elected a proseriion, headed by some of liis most enthusiastic suppoi >ers, stai urd for his house. Gaining rec. jits at every block, it seemed by the time Reed's house was reached that all Portland was out. He came out in answer to the cheei ing and made a brief speech. He was plainlv af fected by this spontaneous outbreak on the part of the people. McKinley's Appointments. Maj.

AI.L the Prohibition, Natiooalis 4 and Populist speakers arc now devoting them ves to Free Silver. They have for gotten every other issue of the cam FREE WOOL. The visiting delegations took an ear.y start this week. Maj. McKinley com menced his speech-making at 11 o clock Monday morning, and he will not finish his oratorical labors till Saturday even ing. . . At TO:W o'clock a delegation ci i,or D wool growers and business men from Harrison county, 0., arrived in Canton. This delegation started from Cadiz, tee county seat, and home ot the venerable diplomat and jurist, John A. Bingham, shortly after sunrise. As the majority 01 the men in the delegation were larmers, early rising was no hardship :or them. The Hanlson county men ■were received in a handsome way at the station, by the Canton mounted troop, who escoited them to Maj. McKuiley'a residence. The ca-.didate has made a good many speeches in Har.lson couuty— which is one of the greatest wool growing com munities in the west—and he has a large number of acquaintances and admirers there many of whoji were among the | - - this fact that ac co'"Tted, in a measire, for the order of the greeting which Maj. McKinlev re ceived when be appeared at his f-ont oorch, this morning. The farmers of Harrison county cheered long and iustilj.. The Ex-attorney general, D. A. Hoi inysworth, was spokesman. His speech had special reference to the -wool in dustry i" which he said Hanson coun tv led l be United States u ler Rcpubli- laws, but lost its p.estige wh*n Se Wilson-Gorman law waspa^.^e Wto^eco^tvonwool SdfwL one of the object lersons which Mr. Bryan, in his letter of «cept*^ Hollingsworth tokilSu]. turning to him, where they saw uie, h °Maf n McKs 'was vociferously cheer ed when he stepped forw' d to reply. H "fcount it a very special honor to re ceive this visit f t o? tteltaimers c°?Jß9ff^frfo^n I would have be«i elad to nave had with yon the venerable citizen and statesman, John A. Bingham (Great applause;, 'wh-. e of cheer and congratulation and good will you have brought me. ( Renewed ap plause.) I beg that you wall carry back to him my best wishes and my earnest praver that his life may be long spared to enjoy the rest>ect and honor given to him by his admiring countrymen every where. HARBISON COUNTY'S WOOL INDUSTRY. "It is especially gratifying to me to receive a visit from so many of the farm ers and wool growers of Hamson county. There is scarcely a county in the State which is so essentially ag. IcuKural as yours. You have no large towns. Vou have but few factories, and your occupa tions are almost exclusively : iral. \ our county has long been noted as one of the ere at agricultural sections of the State especially devoted to that branch of ag riculture known as sheep-raising an i wool-growing. There is probably no por tion of the country of the same ?rea that has supported so many sheep as yours, and for many yefrs at least, this was the most profitable industry of your larjiers. It is not so go 1 , I believe, now, as formally. (Laughter and applause and cries of "DO, no,") "The last three years have been years of great trial, not only to the wool-grow ers of your county, but to the entire coun try. You have seen jour crops d sappea. and your fleecer diminish in value to an extent that previous to 1892, you wou'd not have believed was possible. I re member in 1891 to have delivered an ad dress in the city of Cadiz, to the assembl ed farmers of Harrison county, in which I undertook to predict what would hap pen if we had free wool in the I nited States. There were few men in that great audience who believed my predic tion then. What do you think of it, now, fanners of Harrison county? (Cries of "we think it all right.") "In 1891, you had, according to your banners displayed here to-day, 153>5°3 sheep of an average value of $5 per head. In 1896, you have but 92/ x> sheep worth only sr.so per head. In IS9I, you re ceived from 30 to 32 cents pe/ pound for your wool. In 1896, for the same grade of wool from 14 to 16 cents per pound. This enormous loss to a great industry is truly astounding and calls for serious con sideration and prompt remedy if or.? can be found, and the only remedy we have in the United States is by the ballot, and if it is protection you want, you know what party carries the banner of protec tion. (Enthusiastic cheering ana cries of "what's the matter with McKinley? He's all right") "Prior to the enactment of the Wilson tarifl law you had enjoyed, almost with out interruption from the l>eginning of the government, a tariff on your product to protect you from the competition of the cheaper lands and the cheaper labor of other countries. By that act your product was made free and opened up to the unrestricted competition of all the wool of the world. "What makes that act more indefensi ble is, first, that it was wholly unneces sary; and, second, that it was singling out one of the greatest industries of the country for immediate sacrifice, leaving other industries having no greater claim upon the consideration of the government practically unbanned. (Cries of "That's right.") "'No class of our citizens have suffered •o much from that tariff law as the wool growers of the United States; and none were more deserving of generous tieat ment tl-in they. So inexcusable was this act that President Cleveland, who favored a reduction of tariff all along the line, and who believed in free raw mater ial, was unwilling to sign the bill, and used these characteristic words against it: " 'lt may well excite our wonder that Democrats are willing to depart from this—free raw material doctrine —the most domestic of all ta-iff principles and that the inconsistent absurdity of such a proposed departure should lie emphasized by the suggestion that t'ie wool of the fanners lie put on the free list and the protection of tariff t? ration tie placed around the iron ore and coal of the cor porations and capitalists." •'But this did not avert the fatal blow. Less organized than other industries tn the country yoi were unable to secure the recognition to which you were justly entitled and your great product was made the victim of free trade. (Cries of "That's right." 1 In all the years ill which the Republican party was in power, you know that it gave protection to wool, and in the act of 1890 gave to this industry increased protection. That law, the law of 1890, gave to every agri cultural product of this country, every farmer's product in this country, the most just protection ever had l*-fo e. Every protection that could be given to them against outside romp' itio.i and to preserve the home market, was always cheerfully and generously accorded by the Republican pai t y. ( G.cat applause and cries of "That's right.") "The platform of the National Re publican pany upon which we stand this year, much to my grati.'cation, sing'cs out the. wool industry and makes of it special mention as entitled to full p-otcc tton under our revenue laws. (I«oud ap plause anil cries of "Good, good.") This is the laug-iagc of the national platform: " 'To all products—to those of the mine and the field, as well as those of the shop anil factory—to hemp, to wool, the product of the great industry of sheep husdandry, as well as to the finished woolens of the mill, we promise the most ample protection. (Applause.) This was followed by some general statistics regarding the wool industry of the country, quotations from speeches of Hamilton and Jefferson; and McKinley concluded as follows: "Now they tell you that free silver (laughter) is the panacea for .-ill your ills (renewed laughter), and you have the same money in circul: tion now that you had four years ago; bat von wool-growers have not got as much of it as yott had then. (Cries of "That's right.") As tree wool degraded your industry so free silver will degrade your money. (Ap plause and cries of ( "That's right, too.") You have already been fleeced by loss on your flocks, and you don't propose to !>c fleeced further by loss on your money. (Great cheering.) "We have opened up our mills to the wools of the world, and both the wool and the woolen mill have suffered. The American farmer has seen his wool dis placed by the foreign clip. The Ameri can woolen manufacturer has seen his goods disapjiear from the Ajp-:ricai I market, to give place to the foreign market. And the American farmer has thus lost directly in the pi.ce of his J*' o®' 0 ®' and almost as severely by the blow dealt to the home market for agricultural pro ducts, through the diminished consumer*; resulting from idle mills. The Ameri can farmer will not tamely submit to this injustice and wrong. (A voice: "We don't intend to, in Harrison county.") The American workinginen in the woolen mills will indignantly repeal that legis lation whose effect is to degrade his labor. ( Applause and cries of "He will on the 3d of November.") My fellow citizens, I am glad to receive yon and welcome you here at my home, and it will ailord me sincere pleasure to shake hands with each one of you personally, if vou desire me to do so. Great ap plause.) Ax 1.-shman, name not given, went to hear Bryan recite his speech. Bryan in 1892 promised workingmen high wages and cheap rents, clothing and food if they would vote for free trade. What he is promising thij year is made c»car bv the story of this Irishman. When the speech was concluded the liishman walked to the platform, seized Bryan by the hand, and spoke as follows: •'Sure, Mr. O'Brien, that w?« an illi gant speech, but I want to RX ye a ques tion: Will >e bilng the money to us or must we go afther it? Bryan 'oesu't answer questions. For that reason we wish to inform the I..sh man that iu all human probability he will be compelled "to go afther it. McKinley to Somerset Co. Fifteen hundred fai .ners of Somerset Co. Pa., traveled 250 miles to Canton Tuesday, to greet McKinley. They went w 'th three bands and many banners inscribed with appropriate pa.-y mottoes. Each man wore a large cluster of golden rod on the lapel of his coat and some fastened the emblematic blos rnm tr Xh* ut -Somerset were dnbbed "frosty sons of thunder , by one of their representatives on the floor of the house in Washington more than 50 years ago and on Tuesday each man wore a yellow badge w .th this desci »p --tive phrase upon it. . At McK'lnley's home Senator Cntch field was the spokesman, and McKinley's replv was a very happy one, beginning. "jt gives me sincere pier sure to meet my friends and fellow citizens of Somer set Pa., in my city, my state and my home. Yon have traveled more than 250 milts to bring to me assurances of your confidence and of your pu >ose to pi ve to the Republican w. .y and i's glo.ous principles your united and hearty sup port. [Great applause.] "It is difficult to appreciate until the tact is known what this great audience coming from a sister State represents. You have here in this a 'emblage one forth of the voting populalio of the Republican party and one fifth ot the en tire voting population of the county. [Applause.] It means, my count./men, not that you are interested in me person ally, but that you have a deep and ever abiding interest in your country and your country's honor. [Great cheei.ng and cries of "Interest in McKinley.] It means too that you are deeply interested in the rightful settlement of the great national questions which divide us, and which are to be settled by you- votes, and those of your countrymen next Nov ember. [Appiause.] "I am especially glad to welcome the citizens of Somerset county to my home. [Applause.] I recall that in the years of the past I have visited your mountain home and enjoyed more than once your generous hospitality, and I trust that the future will permit me to again visit that delightful spot and renew our former f iendship [Cheers.] Your spokesman says that the people of your county are devoted to farming. Looking over t'lis vast audience and rememberi.ig how far you are from home, I should think you were devoted to Republican politics. [Tremendous cheer.nw.] "I do not recall a time since the days of the civil war that there has been so much solicitude for the i.ghtful outcome of a national election as this year 1896. All the peoole are reading and studying and informing themselves in a larger de- gree than ever before. Popular inquiry was never so great and popular interest was never so profound. It is gratifying too, that the masses of our countrymen are seeking the rifjht for the «aVf of the right, that they may pursue the . ght. They want to know only what is best for the countiy, what will truly promote their own welfare and insure the great est results for the common good. [Ap plause. EAIRVIEW.

Farewell Addresa. One of the mo»t precious legacies of the true American spirit ever bequeathed to j the ciUJens of the United States is George . Wasaington's Farewell Addrws, i«ned under date of September 19, 1i96, when he not only declined in dignified and nsmis- j takable words the honor of a third rreai-. denial term, but al. > atUred to the young i nation of which he bad been acclaimed J "The Father," the warning j of a parting friend." It was not only an i appeal to patriotism, but a prophetic can- | tien against the errer«Jand waesof »ection alism. The great laadar had always axperi ecced bitterly the unhappy «y lequetcM of sectionalism upon the tended nelu. ine iealousiea of the Conti' antal aoldiars-<>f ten the result of old provinaial and colo nial squabbles—had made him heartsick ! many a time, ®ver in the horr of Ticlorj I over the common foe. Time and again he i had been moved to exclaim that the new i without King (jeorge was like the substitutio r of thirteen petty sovereignties lor the old single on«>. In hie trip towards the west he discern ed the trembling pivotal attitude of the immense Western Empire with respect to the future development of the new federa tion. During the eigh years of hia Presi dency he had' beheld thfe cruel beginning of partisan warfare. His own fellow-pa.- riot, Thomas Jefferson, had instituted a criticism upon nim, and Freneaa s dia tribes had soured many of the sweets of public honor. Indeed, Washington once exclaimed: "They could not trW. me any worse if I were a >*ero!" When he determ ined to issue his Farewell Address ne: turned to Editor Claypool as lta pubHher. That journalist alone bad treated Wash I ington with the reverence and esteem which he deserved, while all the Ana-Fed eralists were barking and snapping at t.s Having at the close oJ hia first term consulted James Madison i» regard U» an address declining a second eleoiion, Wast ington now sought theadvloe and couuse. of Alexander Hamilton no longer a mem ber ot the Cabinet. The Address was pre pared and pablished nearly half a jear be fore his official term expired. The immor al paper has often been printed with tne date of September 17, and special interest has been expressed in the coDe.denoe oj or tne v nit ed Slates. As a matter of tact the orig inal Address, in Washington's autograph bears the date of September 19, 179*5, &* may be seen by the visitors to the Lenox Library in I*ew York. The immediate eftect of the Address was to emphasise the truly republican character of the new nation. It at once gained triumphant recognition for the principle of popular government. Bat the "No Third Term" Idea is by no maans PO important as the ,'No Sectionalism' P-'| n * ciple laid down in this message by the de parted Father of this Country. That broad, far sighted statesmanship, which ever distinguished Washing.on, ieems to giitrp-ied far ahead of the actual perls »-Dicn then threatened the Federal Gov ernment. Tfe slavery divorce between Xoith and South had already been hinted in the famous sapi ressed passage of Jef ferson's Declaration of Independence. Warhiagton not only felt the dividing in fluence of the Mason aDd Dixon line, out any care a' reader of his writings (as collected by Mr, Ford) must be imprsssed with the conviction that he was also anx ious to prevent a divorce of Bast and West. To-day when holitical agitators, appeal ing to cU.iS prejudices, arc doing all they can to stir up the spirit of sectionalism be tweentl e West and South and the East, it is a genuine civic duty and benefit ti listen once more to the warning appeal of the ot the great American who knew no name but that of counvrv. Exclaimed he in al most pmpheic accents; la contemplating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as a matter of serious concern, that uny groand should hav« been furnished for aharaoteriiing par ties by geographical discriminations: North ern infl Southern Atlantic and Western; whenoe designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real differ ence of local interests and views. One ol the expedients of party to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepre sent the opinion and aims of other dis tricts. You connot snield yourself too much against the jealopsies and heart burnings which spring from these misrep resentations they .tend to render alien to oach other those who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection. AT the meeting ol the Democratic Co., Committee in Butler Monday, Amos Steelsmith of Butler, a Probibitonist was put in nomination Tor Assembly vice W. B. Redd of Chicora resigned. The committee adopted the following: "XTlat wft li.artity un.lz.rt. tha of the Democratic state committee in un doing the work of the Allentown con vention, with the exception of its failure to request the removal of William F Harrity from the Democratic national co-nmittee. and we the, Democrats of Butler county, request Mr. Harrity to forthwith declf re himself in favor of the national Democratic platform and its nominees or resign as a member of the Democratic national committee. McKinley and Protection. Extracts from a letter from lota. Greenfield, la. Sept. 14, 1806, W. C. Negley, Esq. Butler Pa. Dear Sir Money is close here as p;ices are exceed ingly low. We have an abundance to make money oat of here if there was any market for our prodncts. There m in our town a half-million bushels of old oorn in crib*, and oats accordingly. The new crop of oats is in a manner lost on the ac count of no much rain dating harvest and threshing time. I have on my farms 12,000 ba. of corn in cribs and 3,500 bn. of oats in bins, that we are holding until after McKinley is elected and perhaps until after he is inaugurated President. Oar new corn crop will be very abun dant if the frost don't catch it for a fort night yet. 1 wi.l have at least 5,000 bushels of raw corn, bat the price now will not pay for producing it, but all that can will hold tor McKinley and Protection. We are feed ing two car loads f4O head ]of steers and a lot of h jgs that wi'l consume a portion of our new crop. Cattle and sheep are the only products of the farm that bring anything like a re munerative prioe. At the opening of the campaign we thought that the Popocrat* were going to sweep the country, but now w» have them on the run and by the 31 of Nov. they will wonder what has becotnu ol the balance of them. I expect our western Popocrat orators are more windy than they are in the east as they have a better opportunity of inflating themselves, at least the ingre dient i» more abundant here than there, and ft ia "free." Tneir speaker* greatest effort 1* to array the West against the East and to create seclior alism; yoa would think to hear them, if yon did not know better, that 'he Eastern consumer was the Western farmer's bitter enemy. The best element of all daises and parties here are for "Bill" McKinley and the McKinley Bill and a 100 cent dollar whether gold.silver or paper. We want the credit, faith arid honor of our government maintained. No sectionalism. Yours truly, E. Q. DUNCAN.

Question I.—lf we, acting on behalf of the silvererat party, can raise the price of t the 13,000,000 ounoea of silver from the 1 Broken Hill mine from WJ cento to 1198 r> per ounce, how much profit shall we, "ln -8 eldentally," make for the British owners? j Answer 1.—51.30 minus 66 cents equals j 63 cents; 13,000,000 ounces multlpliod by 83 cents equals |7,600,000. Question 3.—lf we raise the prioe of the rest of the silver bullion produot of 188,- '< 000,0(t) ounces, mostly British, from 6fl J cents to 91 99 an ounoe, how muoh addi tional profit shall we "incidentally" take ont of the pockets of the American work man and pat into the pockets of the sllvor- F erats, mostly British? Answer 2.—91-89 minus tifl equals 83 H cents; 183,000.000 ounces multiplied by 83 cants equals 9109,460,000 e Question 3. —lf the British owners of the . Broken Hill mlna have made 140,000,000 on 19,000,000 ounces In eight years at the mar s' kst rate of silver, hew mueh will the ' mostly British owners raaki In the next eight years on 1T«.M0,«08 ouacee a year at 91.90 an onnoe, when we have secured their ■ force bfll to bring the value of the silver D bullion of the world op to that prioe? Answer. —Mr. Bryan la aew "Uwldent ' ally" figuring this ant, a«d w4ll give the 6 answer in his next speech. Mr. Bryan says that these "inoidantal" (aec the last part of his ad dross in New - York) profits most not prevent the voters - of this oountry from supporting the sllver " crat party. Mr. Bryan goes about the country like a small roaring lion braying about British bankers, and alleging that his opponents are subjecting the money system of this oountry to British lnfla ' enoa If that sort of talk Is taken out of s his speeches, what is there left? s Now, If the silvererat orators regard E this sort of sauce suitable for the geese whom they expect to drive, may not a sauoe of British silver be rightly served to , that kind of gander? If the whole body of persons who are in good repute In this country to whom have * been delegated the hlghoet position* of s trust In the custody at the great enter * priceß of this country, ai well M all the 1 eon duct of life lnstiranoe companies, sav f lngs banks, and the like, are aotnatod by 3 British lnflneime in tholr efforts to keep the savings of the people as good as Brit ish gold, what shall be said of the sll ver s cratsofevll repute who are trying to debase 2 the American dollar to the levol of the Mexican dollar and to reduce American waxes to the rates of Mexican wages? British Silver Emissaries. Is their motive to be attributed to Brit ish silver? Under what inflnonce have sudden oon ' versions been worked In Massachusetts? Under what Influence have the bossies of the political machines been led from the - true Democratic party to the sllvercratlc ) party? r' lias the permanent sliver lobby of able r and unscrupulous men been paid to work ! In Washington these many years with BliMsh silver? | Who got op the book of Ilea entitled "Coin's School" and spread it > by millions over the ooaittry? * Have British emissaries been working I for years for the "laoldeutal" Issues (see Mr Bryan) profits of the Brltlih silver Interest? Let these silver era t tradnoers who prate about British gold and British laflaence ' r In support of the credit and honor of thlf r nation take warning lest British silver and Its Influence be brought home to them selves to their own discredit and dishonor. ' What Daniel Webster said ot a similar body of cheap money men sixty years ago fits this case, with the change of two words, which I have put In brackets: ( "He who tampers with the currency rebs > labor ef Its bread. He panders, Indeed, ta i greedy capital, which Is keen sighted and ' may shift for Itself, but he lieggars labor, which Is honest, ansuspectlng, and too busy with the pro sent to calenlate for the p future. The prosperity of the working classes lives, mores, and has Its being he established credit aa< a steady medium of 1 payment. All sudden change* destroy It. | Xonest lndustag serar cesses la for any part of the spoils In that se ramble, whloh , htkes plaoe whan the aarreaoy ef a oeuntry Is disordered. Did wild schemes and pro jects ever benefit the Industrious? Did I violent fluctuations ever do good to him I who depends on his dally labor for his ' dally bread? Did lrredemable bank paper ' [silver dollars] ever enrich the laborious? Certainly nevar. All these things may gratify greed 1 Qua* for suddon gain or the rashlness of daring speculation, bat they can bring nothing but Injury and distress to the homes of patient Industry and honest labor."—Kdward Atkinson la Now : York XI mo*.

J.OIE-- R. GARTIELD writes from Ohio on a point that has occurred to many Republicans: "In his effort to array class against class Mr. Bryan has appealed most strongly to the farmers. If they forsake him his election is an impossi bility. Possibly many do not realise tho difficulty that will confront a new Repub lican administration. With an adverse senate, all means for increasing our reve nues to a point above expenditures will be eonfused with the silver question.
