Another Day of Big and Numerous
Delegations of Visitors.
Charles Emory Smith Says It Beat
Anything He Ever Saw. and Ho
Has Boon to Russia—The Delega
tions Included all Sorts of People
From Typewriter Girls to Rail
Presidents, and the Latter
Brought Their Workmen Along
to Help Swell the Crowd.
Canton, O., October 24.—“The like of
this has never been seen on earth be
fore.” said Charles Emory Smith, ex
minister to Russia, as he stood by the
Associated Press representative review
ing iiie great line of marchers and coun
ter marchers parading on broad North
Market street, in front of the meeca of
the pilgrimages of the people from many
States.
To-day's visitors again broke tFie rec
ord in long distance parties and variety
of delegations. Business men and
farmers came from New York; farmers,
railroad men and working men called by
thousands from Missouri, Iowa and Kan
sas.
From early dawn until late to-night
the McKinh y home was surrounded w* h
a continuous jam. rc-enacting the excit
ing scenes of the constant crush of
otner big days.
Major McKinley spoke with unusual
fervor all day. He made particular re
sponses to the coercion charges made
by National Chairman Jones, when he
said in his address this evening to the
British Isles—America Club of Cleve
land: “They talk about coercion—the
coercion of employe by employer. They
mistake the spirit of this campaign. It
is not coercion, but it is cohesion—co
hesion between employes and employers;
made stronger by a common interest and
a common experience.”
Statements of a similar nature in his
Missouri address called for. h the great
est demonstration of the day about the
platform from which he spoke.
Delegations began to arrive early this
morning and at a rate calculated to
make this Saturday at least equal in
volume and variety of demonstration to
the earlier Saturdays of the campaign.
The first delegation to arrive came
from Lebanon City, Lebanon county, ;
Heading. Berks county, Schuylkill coun
ty and contiguous territory in Pennsyl
vania. They arrived about ti:30 o'clock
on a special train of seven coaches, but
did no: go to McKinley’s home till about
9 o’clock. There were introductory ad
Ircsses by ex-Mayor J. K. Kennedy for
P' iding ami J. Victor Smith, for L -
banon.
As soon as the address to the Penn
sylvanians had been finished, members
of the hardwoodi lumber exchange anti
the builders and trade exchange of
Chicago, who had arrivtfl on a special
tram of three Pullman cars were given
possiou of the lawn. They were intro
duced! by Harvey Saoydeu and address
ed by Major McKinley.
The fourth audience of the day was
made up largely of railroad men in the
employ of the Chicago, Hock Island an j
Pacific road, coming from Horton, Kan
sas; Elden, Iowa; Trenton, Mo., and
Fort Wayne, Ind., the latter part in
cluding representatives of all branches
of railroad interests from officer to sec- :
tlou man. The special train wh ch
reached! Canton about noon left Kan
sas at 6 o'clock yesterday morning. The j
introductory address was made by Ma
jor T. J. Anderson, general ticket and
passenger agent of the raa . i
Major McKinley made his third ad
dress of the day to a delegation from
New York, representing tiie towns of
Elmira, Corning, Bath, Horncllsville,
Cuba and Jamestown, cominii on a
special train of a dozen coaches early .
this morning, and to several hundred ;
from McKean county. Pa. Dtstr.ct At
torney w. W. Clark spoke for the New
Yorkers, and W. W. Proud for the Penn
sylvanians.
When the Western rawroau me a va

Senator Quay Thinks Olvine Power Alone
* an Overcome Republican Scheme*.
PITTSBURG. October 24.—One of the
largest Republican rallies ever hold in
this city was held to-night at Old City
Hall. The hall was crowded almost to
the suffocation point and many failed to
gain admission.
Tiie speakers were Senator Quay .State
St nator Boies Penrose of Philadelphia.
ex-Congressman John S. Wise of New
York. State Senator S. J. M. MeCarrell of
Harrisburg, ai.d Judge Samuel Ii. Miller
of Mercer.
In the course of Senator Quay's re
marks (which were very brief on account
of haorseness) he said that only the inter
position of God could prevent the election
of McKinley. He predicted that within
ten months after McKinley's inauguration
the tariff question would be settled so sat
isfactorily as to th* reafter take that ques
tion out of American politics altogether.
The money question also would he
speedily and permanently solved, leaving
the people free to study legitimate state
craft.

paramount issue and that the tariff
was not to be considered in it. He

them that no tariff legislation had ever
made any change or had any tendency
to relieve the tanners ana laboring
classes, 'hut on the other hand, when
ever Congress had taken any steps to
increase the volume of our currency a
ready response was felt in the increased
activity of business. Mr. Hogg handles
his subject as one who knows, and t ie
Democracy bus lost considerably by his
not being able to speak in every county

Au Imposing and Novel Demonstra

Wealthy Hold Standard Advo

---
New York. October 24.—Probably the
most gorgeous marine spectacle as well
as the most imposing political demon
stration that has ever been witnessed
in the Untied ri ates was the parade of
vessels in New York harbor to-night
under the auspices of the Shipping and
Industrial Sound Money Association of
•the port of New York. The parade was
a demonstration on the part of business
men and others who favor the gold
standard, and many weeks had been de
voted to the preparations for the event.
Nearly 300 vessels, including every
description of river craft, made up the
illuminated and decorated flotilla, which
extended for nearly seven miles along
the Hudson river and into tne waters
of the bay. There were large and
graceful excursion steamers, sturdy
ferry boats, clumsy barge.? and lighters,
noisy little tugs and expensive steam,
launches, all brlllantly decorated with
colored lights, political devices and
bunting, followed one another amid the
glare of rockers, Homan candles, fire
balloons and colored lights. Many of
the boats were equipped wi'h calcium
and flash lights and beams of light shot
across the pa Vi of ih° vessels from var
ious points along-shore,
i from piers along tin* river front on both
| sides of the Hudson and from floats an
chored at various points on tin* route fire
works were exploded. These displays In

i "Honest Money," "Peace and Plenty,
| "The Starry Cloud." “Old Glory. ’ the ! it

the American flag .'>00 by 2n0 feet.
The most imposing display was at the

took up her position, after leading the pa
