The fanners bad suffered poor crops and were unable to pay their mortgagee and interest to eastern capital. Mirk Banna was guide to realise the psychology of ths situation. He picked out McKlnley, who had been prominent as a high tariff champion while in Congress, and who was t conservetire, conventional and "safe" businessman's type of candidate. Hanna raised money without trouble among businessmen to finance the plan to make McKlnley the Republican nominee. For more than a year before the convention the work went on.: The practical workers in the Repub-I Ucan party organiation were convinced that McKlnley would be a good tariff and prosperity candidate and in various parts of the country little paragraphs began to appear in the pa pers educating the voter to this idea.

A few weeks before the convention took place, an effort was made to bring out Tem Reed, speaker of the House of Representatives aa a rival candidate. The Reed movement never develop ed any strength. Long before they met in the convention hall, it was so well recognized that UcEinley would be nominated that the only interest waa that which centered about the platform. This was the beginning of the free silver controversy. The Democratic convention had sot keen held: but the Republican managers bad noticed the mutterings of free silver. These mutterlngs were coming from the west, and it was evident that the mosey issue would have to be faced. Everybody crowded the rooms occupied by Mark Hansa. He was the recognized leader, and everybody wanted to know1 what he intended to do about the money plank in the platform. He was frank and determined. He said the convention would have to come out flat-footedly for the gold standard. It did so. and the tariff issue was crowded into the background. "Sound money and prosperity" were the issues. and the campaign slogan was the famous "full dinner pall"?a tribute to the inventiveness of Mark Hansa. 5S ii i| OFF unw I OLjU il\s rr MS ARE RUN it She Tried to Give the Elecstration on How to Count. machinery by Attorney Frank Haymond tad Rollo Conley. poll clerks who with extreme affability took the thin* apart and showed just bow the wheels go round, a show of bands to determine the political affiliations of lie members of the party was ask0I? nornwrm and fire Re OU XVA MM Sbticans were counted, out of a noesit ten voters.
