While lie was always an ardent
Republican and a strong party
worker he never attempted to
deliver a public address until in f
897 1 when an effort was made by 1
tlle Democrats to defeat him for
his seat in the senate 1
In ail his dealings Mr Hunna
ras regarded by all to be per c
featly honest and by good mUll
gement he had managed to ac I
umulato a snug fortune
The gold plank in the Repub I
Ican platform of 1890 was cred

ruth was that Mr McKinley
wrote it himself in the office of
Mr Hanna in Cleveland with a
