AlKer and Others Talk Patriotism
—Entire Party Leaves lor St.
Special to the Globe.
DULUTH, Minn., Sept. 24.— One of
the most notable meetings of the cam
paign was held here tonight, when
Generals Alger, Sickles, Howard tinl
Stewart and Corporal Tanner ad
dressed an audience of between 3.500
and 4,000 people at the street car barns.
The distinguished party arrived .n the
city at 7 o'clock, escorted by a re
ception committee of ten from the
Union Veterans' Patriotic league, who
met the visitors at West Superior. They
dined in their special car and proceed
ed directly to the place of attesting; at
tended by fifty members of the Vet
erans' Patriotic league an'l the Young
Men's Republican club 300 strong. The
assemblage received the warriors v.-i;h
the greatest enthusiasm, the applause
continuing as they marched down the
hall to the platform. Profound silence
followed the touching spectacle that
was presented as the maimed Sickles
and Tanner were assisted upon the
platform steps. The speakers were in
troduced by Judge White. Gen. Sickles
was the first to speak. He commenced
by saying that he is a Democrat and
therefore opposed to Bryan. Bryan
might be a Populist, or a great many
other things, but the fact that he
stands on the Chicago platform proves
that he is not a Democrat. Millions
of Democrats have rejected that plat
form. There is
Bryan might be a wonderful man
or boy, rather— a progidy of youthful
precocity, but he has not the experi
ence and knowledge of public affairs
that would fit him to fill the require
ments of the chief magistrate's office.
His remedy for hard times Is to stamp
53 cents' worth of silver as a dollar. He
proposes to coin the silver miners' stuff
and force it on the people. The so
called "crime of '73" was wise legisla
tion demanded by the operation of the
law of supply and demand, to which
silver is subject as well as all else.
Said he:
"What gave us good times between
ISBB and 1892? did their wonderful
'crime of '73' make good times from
1888 to 1892 and then like a cruel
monster turn and make bad times in
1896? What a wonderful genius Is
silver. Jt waves its wand decreeing
happiness and prosperity today and
tomorrow distress and poverty. If
that be its nature then It is worth all
the strugles of the campaign to rid the
country of it." The speaker enlarged
on the folly of the theories of Bryan
and his followers and called on Ameri
can citizens to rally* as they did in 1861
to preserve the country that had been
preserved to them by the expendi
ture of so much blood and treasure.
"Diaz of Mexico, Victoria empress of
India, nor the Czar of the Russlas
have not been able to maintain the
value of their silver coin. How then
can Bryan expect to do it even though
clothed like the czar with political and
spiritual power? It has never been
done and never can be. If Bryan could
succeed in stamping the flag with the
word 'Repudiation' and make us a
by-word by refusing to pay our debts
when our resources are ample, he
would not be fit to preside over the
American homes.
"I shall net be satisfied with mere
success," said he in conclusion, "I
look for an overwhelming, final
Gen. Alger followed. He called on
the comrades of the Grand Army to
gird themselves to preserve the coun
try's honor as they had its unity on the
bloody field from 1861 to 1865. He
pledged Michigan for McKinley and
honor and said he expected the men of
Minnesota to stand by the flag. The
heritage left by Grant, Sherman and
Logan in the hands of Sickles and How
ard. Said he, "We have them with us
thank God."
Gens. Howard and Stewart and Cor
poral Tanner also spoke, their remarks
being applauded to the echo. The
party will leave here tomorrow morn
ing for Brainerd. The itinerary, an
nounced tonight is as follows. Brain

plauded. Gen. Howard followed and
elicited much enthusiasm. His warm
indorsement of President Cleveland's
action regarding the Chicago strike
stirred the greatest applause. Gen.
Alger followed, and then Gen. Stewart

chapter in a rather romantic divorce,
enacted here this afternoon when Har
vey W. Bell and Mrs. H. P. Magown,
both of New York city, were united in

Basket of Roses for Eooli State in
the Union Presented to Mrs.
CANTON, 0., Sept, 24. —Pennsylvania
today sent two large delegates to ex
tend greetings to Ma'J. McKinley. One
came as the Westmoreland county
delegation, utilizing four special trians,
of eleven coaches each. This was dis
tinctively representative of the mining
industry and included representatives
of the coke making interests. Address
es were made by M. S. Vandyke and
Congressman George F. Huff. The
Oil City delegation was a thoroughly
representative body from all branched
of oil producing industry. It included
refiners, dealers in supplies, tank
manufacturers, merchants in various
parts of the oil territory and workmen
employed in the different processes of
oil producing. It was cla'msed by those
in charge of the delegation that it in
cluded many men who have hereto
fore voted the Democratic ticket, but
who have this year declared their in
tention to vote for McKinley. Among
such, who are prominent in oil produc
ing circles and who were with the
party today, were Eugene Leibal, an
independent refiner, sxipply dealer and
a number of merchants and other busi
ness men. Thomas B. Simpson and
Editor Patrick C. Boyle, oftlie Oil City
Derrick, were also prominent membery
of the delegation. The speakers were
Hon. Amos Steffee and Hon. W. J.
The marching of the fcvjrty-flve young
women, representing Hie forty-five
states of the union, each "carrying a
large basket of roses, was really one
of the most unique features yet intro
duced in the campaign. The baskets
were taken from the women as they
approached Mrs. McKinley and ar
ranged on a pyramidal platform of
large proportions, and ; there allowed to
remain all day and to be admired by
thousands of Cantonians. This even
ing the baskets, were taken to Aultman
hospital and to private homes where
sickness prevails.
Gen. Bottsford and wife, of Youngs
town, who have been guests at the
McKinley residence, returned to their
home this evening. Gen. Grosvenor. of
Athens, Ohio, called on Maj." MeKinley
this evening.
The first Pennsylvania delegation to
arrive was from Weet Newton. The
visitors brought with them bands of
music and drum corps. The spokes
man for the first section wns Mr. Van
dyke. To his words, Maj. McKinley
responded as follows:
Mr. Vandyke and My -Fellow Citizens: I
had not expected to meet the people, of West
moreland county in sections. I had supposed
that you would come to me today In an
united body, and that I might have an oppor
tunity of addressing you all; together, but it
seems there are so many Republicans this
year that when they make a jowrney they
have to come in sectipns. (Laughter and
cries of "Thafs so.") There Is no sort of
objection to being divided now, but I trust
that on the third day of "iv T (B'«nber you will
all be united. Cries of "We ■will.") I ccunt
it a very great persons!, pleasure ix> meet
and greet the people of West Newton. I re
call your busy and enterprising city .with
great satisfaction ; I remember the wily
visit I ever paid to you, '"and at tljat time I
found your city one of th* most active and
most prosperous In the whale country. I
regret to hear from your spokesman that all
that has changed, and where plenty and
prosperity presided want and despair now sit.
And that naturally leads to the inquiry, what
occasioned If That la tie thought in every
man's mind. We have tha. some country that
we had four years ago; we have .the same
splendid resources, the same farms, the same
factories, the stun* mines, the same sturdy
enterprtslng people that T-e. had th«n, and
what Is thn reason -we bar* not the same
praajwrlty n»w?
The reason is not hard to dtaftra. Tar
more than thirty years wb lived In ihf« coun
try und«r a protective tarif; m tarlf? that pro
t«ot«i and ftneontrtLged American enterprise
and American Industry; a tariff that mad* its
In that period of time the greatest nation in
the world in manufactures, in mining and
in agriculture; a system that protected every
thing we made in this country against similar
things In Europe; a protection to every
American interest against conflicting foreign
interest. Now that protection has been par
tially removed, and when the people ot-thls
country, in 1892, decreed that there was to
be a change of policy, and that we were to
go from a protective policy to a partial free
trade policy, or a revenue tariff policy then
uncertainty hung over this country and no
man knew what to do. No man could count
upon what the future would bring; no man
knew when he mined coal how much he would
get for it; no man knew when he put raw
material into one end of the factory how
much he would get for it when it came of the
other. On account of the uncertainty whioh
hung over us, because of the anticipated
competition from other countries, the busi
ness of this country was at onoe depressed
and for four years we have been suffering
because our industries were not prosperous
and while our industries were not prosperous
the industries of other countries were
Now, I am one of those who believe that it
is the business of this country to make laws
for the benefit of this country. (Loud ap
p;*use.) I believe the business of this free
government Is to preserve the American mar
market to the American producer, whether the
. f^£l9 r .y or the .Jarm, and to preserve the
American mines and the American factories
for the American workingman. (Applause.)
And that is all there is to a protective tariff
We want enough tariff in this country put
upon foreign goods that compete with ours
to make up the difference between the wages
paid labor in Europe and the wages paid la
bor in the United States. (Tremendous ap
plause.) We want the difference between
American conditions and European condi
tions made up by a protective tariff upon a
foreign product that competes with the Amer
ican product. That is the policy pursued by
the Republican party ever since it came into
power. Then we want, my fellow citizens,
to restore confidence— business confidence.
We do not want any cheap money any more
than we want cheap labor in the United
States. (Cries of "That's right.") When the
miners of West Newton have dug their coal
by their honest toil they want to be paid in
dollars that are equal to the best dollars of
the world and will not depreciate in the fu
ture, and will be as good on one day and In
one country as in another. (Applause.)
The Republican party does not conceal its
purposes; they are an open book. Every
thing that the Republican party believed in
when it has been in power it has written in
public laws; it has no aim but the public
good; it has ever stood on the side of the
country and the flag. Its great central idea
has been the welfare of the people and all
the people, and every principle that it has
ever advocated has embraced the highest good
for the greatest number of American citizens.
That has been the policy of the Republican
party for nearly a third of a century; it is
the policy of the Republican party today.
For the Republican party advocates Its prin
ciples no less in defeat than in victory, and
these principles today are dearer to the
American people than they have ever been
before. (Great applause.) Now what we
want is to write on our ballots next Novem
ber what we think is best for us, best for our
labor, best for our wages, best for our mines,
best for our factories and our farms, best for
our families an<s best for our children. Let
your ballot represent these considerations,
my fellow citizens, and the Republicans need
not fear for a triumph on the third day of
November. (Anplause.)
Shortly after noon, a special train
brought the party from Oil City, Pa.,
to greet Maj. McKinley. The party
was introduced by Hon. Amos Steffee
and the congratulatory address was
made by Hon. W. J. Hullings.
In his address tc the second Penn
sylvania delegation, Mr. McKinley, be
frre touching on the tariff question,
spoke briefly of £he silver problem. He
This contest, in some of its aspects, is the
old, yet ever new and eternal contest be
tween right and wrong. Standing for the right
as we believe — for can there be any doubt
that standing for national honor and national
credit and national currency and supremacy
of the law, is standing for the right— can there
be any doubt, my fellow citizens, of West
moreland county? Lincoln said in one of
those great debates against Douglass:
"It is a question between right and wrong.
That is the real issue. That is the issue
that will continue in this country when these
poor tongues of ours are siient. It is the
eternal struggle between these two princi
ples, right and wrong through the world.
They are two principles that have stood face
to face from the beginning of time and will
ever continue to struggle until the right shall
ultimately triumph."
The principle for which Mr. Lincoln con
tended, the limitation of slave territory and
the final abolition of slavery itself, did tri
umph most gloriously, to the satisfaction
eventually of every patriotic citizen both
North and South. We are confronted this year
with a question of not mere pat'san differ
ence, but with a great moral principle. Such
a question, I admit, that ought never to en
ter into political discussion, but which hav
ing arisen, must be courageously met by the
American people and be settled once and for |
all upon the eternal principles of right. Jus
tice and honor. (Applause and three cheers
for McKinley.) And so settled. I trust that
the like of it will never be raised again.
What !s the proposition gravely presented
to us? Both of the great political parties of
this country have at different times — Republi
cans and Democrats — in the. most deliberate
and binding manner, placed upon the statute
books of the United States the expressed dec
laration that "ail money, whether gold, silver
or paper, shall be eaual in value by every
resource at the command of the government." j
(Tremendous cheering. • In opposition to this
formal, legal and binding declaration, there
are those who propose to deliberately annul
that solemn contract— by lawful means, it is

must be remembered that the nations of the
world -which are not on a gold basis use no
gold and the nations that are on a gold basis
use silver. (Apdause.)
If tho suggestion is made that this course
involves the good faith and honor of tWe gov
ernment and would for the first time cause
partial repudiation of just obligations, the
answer is made that our creditors should ex
pect nothing better; that they have a right
to expect nothing better. I protest they have
a right to expect nothing of that sort from
the government •of the United States that
never repudiated a debt it made. (Applause.)
To my mind the question involves a distinct
issue between right and wrong, between hon
or and dlshoner, and I believe it will on re
flection be so considered by an overwhelming
majority of American voters on the third of
November next. (Tremendous applause and
cheering.) We cannot afford to trifle about
a matter so serious and vital to our standing
and welfare as a people; and I appeal to all
who love their country and their institutions
to rise in their might and defeat this un
worthy appeal by such a vast majority as
will put it to rest forever.

PORTLAND, Me.. Sept. 24.- John R.
Gentry today at Rigby Park paced the
fastest mile ever made in harness, and
placed tha world's record at 2.00*.
The day was cold and a light north
westerly wind was blowing up the
stretch when John R. Gentry, with \\~.
S. Andrews in the sulky, came out to
go against his record of 2:01^, made
on Sept. 8, thid year, at Glens Fall*,
N. V., in the second heat of a race with
Star Pointer. Gentry had been giv^n.
two warming up miles during the after
noon, and when he came out for the
third, the sun was rapidly sinking. The
famous pacer scored once or twice with i
the runner who was to pace him. and \
then went up the stretch in what was
to be the fastest mile ever done by a ;
horse in harness. There was not a "big i
crowd present, but what there was of I
them gave the pacer a great ovation j
as he came down toward the wire fir
the word "go," shouted by Starter Cui. '
bertson, and hundreds of watches
caught the pacer at the start.
The runner was at the pacer's throat
latch as they made the first turn in
the stretch. Gentry went steadily and
with apparent ease, the runner having
hard work keeping his position. The I
judges caught the quarter-mile at 2914;
seconds, and the second quarter was
made in 30^ seconds, making the half
mile in :59%. There the runner, by the
use of the whip, was keeping up at
Gentry's wheel, but was making hard
work of it. The third quarter was made
in 30% seconds, making the three-quar
ters in 1:30%.
As they turned into the home st.ivtoh
and caught the wind in the teeth the
ciowd began to yell wildly and both
Andrews and the driver commenced to
ring encouragement to their hors>s a^d
to use the whip a little. With ihe
I shouting of the crowd, which was n< w
cheering like mad. the pacer spurted
for the wire, and, considering that he
had the wind in his teeth, made the
most remarkable quarter of the heat,
30%. When Starter Culbertson an
nounced the time the crowd br^ke
through the fence and crowded out r. n
the track and around the pacer cheer
