When the reMirter railed at car Vr. Mill was buy, but aent word that bo would beat liberty In a short time. The other member of the president's party, consisting of W. H.

Itlton. su perintendent of the Cascade dlvlalon. were at dinner, but soon came Into the otiservatlon end of the private car. where they sat and discussed Seattle's srowlh slnee the great lire of 1KS9. In possibly fifteen mlnutea president Hill came from another car and said to the reporter: "Come with me; I am going to my dinner and 1 can do two things at once; rat and tulk." When he was set..d and had been served the Mir mllroad man said, in an swer to a iiuentlnn: "No. my vlalt at this time hiis nothing of any particular slKiiinranre In It. I am making one of my iK-rloillc.il trip over the rood and chose this time on account of Mr. W. M.

We left ft. fnul Thursday afternoon and came directly here without stop ping. "I haven't heard of any lawault against the Ureal Northern by the mer chants of Spokane. I did know of one agulnst the Northern I'aclflc, and we were fighting It together, bk of course, we arc Jointly Interested In tha renu.lt. If a Ri-pHinte one hits bevn tiled against ua It Is newa to me. "I also hoped to see the Yamaguchi .Muni, but unless she arrives before the time we had planned to leave we Khali not wait for her. The steamer line means much to Seattle. It means the opening of a market for all the wheat products of Washington and Oregon, without any danger from competition of the Kastern wheat fields or those of Russia. "Will the HuHsliin look for a market In China and Japan?" repeated Mr. Hill. "No, they will not; they cannot com pete with Western Washington and Or egon. If they tried It. it would menn from the wheat growing belt of Huasla a haul over the Siberian railway of D0;0 mllis at a rate of cents per ton per mile. That would mean JU0 per ton delivered at the seaboard. This country gives the lowest railroad rates of any In the world, our rate being S7 cents per ton per b0 miles. "The reason the (ireat Northern en tered Into an arrangement w ith the Nip pon Vusen Kalaha, Instead of putting our own steamers on. Is that the Jap anese company has practically a mo nopoly on the coastwise business of China and Japan and could create a very strong competition with us and practically dictate terms to us for the foreign delivery. Consequently we gather up the shipments and deliver them to the Japanese steamers at this point. "Why has the price of wheat advanc ed?" asked Mr. Hill. "It Is not a scar city, but the opening of a new market. A year ago It was quoted at from 20 to 30 cents; now It is 45 cents. After elec tion It will be more." When asked for an opinion on politics Mr. Hill disclaimed a full knowledge of affair in the far West, but as to the East and the general result he was positive: "McKlnley will be elected," said Mr. Hill, "and with a big majority. People are not going to go crnxy either. Tho American balonce wheel will adjust things as It has before. This Is the third time that a disturbance has been sent across the country from South Carolina. Once when President Jackson had to send down word that he would hang Calhoun unless there were certain con ditions compiled with; once when they dred on Fort Sumter, and last when Tillman dictated tho Chicago platform. The South Carolina disturbances swing around In cycles about thirty years apart, but people are not going to for get tho blood and treasure wasted In tho second. Everything Is going to be all right."

I regret, therefore, that I must decline your Invitation to address the league on some date previ ous l the approaching election. Even if the pretisure of duty did not prevent, I should hardly deem It consistent with strict reciprocity to mingle actively In the (lending campaign. "While It is Impossible t hat any of my fellow cltliens should have the least doubt as to my sentiments on the vital question which at this time absorbs so Itugely the attention Of our people, the work of advancing financial Ideas and the labor of enforcing lessons of subtle and private honesty and morality I feel must he prosecuted without such par ticipation on my part aa you suggest" UCSTAV WILSON.

Practically every factory and store In the city is closed; also the board of trade and banks. From early morning the streets were Jammed with cheering thousands. SENTENCED FOR LIFE. San Francisco, October 9. Wm. Llne han, thirty years old, was today sen tenced by Judge Wallace to spend the remainder of his life In the state prison at San Quentln for robbery. He enticed John Wllcome Into his rooms on Fourth street. While they were in the room together three masked men appeared and robbed Wllcome of his watch and chain and some money. The Judge said: "The evidence in this case, including your own account of yourself, charac terizes you as a person not fit to be at large in a community claiming to be respectable. The considerations of safe ty us well as decency suggest that you be separated from good people, and permanently." CIRCUIT COURT.

MEN OF SHENAMJOAII VALLEY Pay the First Visit of ex-Confederate Soldier to a Presidential Candidate and Sing "We're Coming Father McKlnley, 200,000 Strong." Canton. Ohio, October 9. Of all the enthusiastic demonstrations since the St. Louis convention. Canton has never een the like of today's doings. The j'itebel yell" was heard for the first 'time on her streets. The visit of old j Confederate warriors from the Shenan 'doah Valley brought thousands of peo j t ie to tow n. Eighteen hundred Vlr iglnlans were met by the Cnlon veterans j of Canton, several hundred strong. They came w ith badges Inscribed "No North, 'no South, no East, no West; union for ever." Arm In arm with the old boys In blue the veterans In gray were es corted to the Tabernacle where the G. A. R. and Woman's Relief Corps served the dinner. They had a new version of the old song, and sang "We're Coming, Father Mc Klnley, 200,000 Strong." From the Tabernacle to the McKlnley J home the streets w ere lined with peo j tile. Three hundred Cleveland veterans Joined In the escort. The bands played '"Dixie." "America," and "Marching Thro" Georgia." Throngs of people on the way Joined in the yells of the marchers as best j they could. When the great crowd lined I up about the home It filled the door ! yard and streets around about. This 'compelled McKlnley to speak from a I small temporary stand covered with the j national colors In order that he might be heard. I Editor F. H. Funkhouker. of the State Republican, spoke on behalf of the del egation in gaovcaJ, la eonclualatt tit his felicitous address of greeting and assur ance of support Mr. Funkhouser Intro duced the Confederate general, John E. Roller, who spoke on behalf of the sol diers. After Major McKlnley had responded to these addresses, ex-Mayor R. A. Cas Idy, of Canton, presented the visitors w 1th a magnificent banner by which to remember their visit here. On one side is represented clasped hands, indicating the union of all soldiers. Above these hands are the words "United we stand," and "McKlnley Club" In large gold let ters. On the reverse side Is a large American eagle, In gold, resting upon a large shield. This side bears the In scription, "Presented to the ex-Confederate veterans of the Shenandoah Val ley, Virginia, by the ex-Union veterans of Canton, Ohio, October -9. 1S96." In reply to General Roller. Major Mc Klnley said in part: "I welcome to my home the represen tatives of the state of proud ancestral memories. the state of Washingion, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe. "Thrice welcome, men of Virginia, men of the Shenandoah Valley. Thrice welcome, descendants of such noble sires, to my heart and home. Patriotism Is not bound by state, or class, or sec tion lines. We are a re-unlted coun try (cries of "Yes, yes, that's what we are," and tremendous applause.) "I think I may be pardoned if I say that I have great pride and gratification In this call of the ex-Confederate sol diers. It has touched my heart pro foundly; It is probably the first call of Its kind that was ever made upon a presidential candidate of the Republi can party, or possibly of any party. I regard It as another and most signifi cant assurance that a complete recon ciliation has come and that the South and North, aa in the early lifetime of the republic, are again together in hearts as well as in name. It will quicken every patriotic pulse from one end of the country to the other. I am honored to have witnessed this scene and day, and I bid you soldiers of Grant and soldiers of Lee 'at the shrine of this re-unlon, dedicate your Uvea anew.' "Rejoice, all of you, and thank God that 'the cause of truth and human weal Is transferred from the sword's appeal to peace and love.' " (Vociferous cheer ing.) ROBBERS ARRESTED. Men Who Held Vp the Bank of Joseph Brought to Justice. La Grande, Or., October 9. Two more arrests have been made of the parties engaged in the robbery of the bank of Joseph, Wallowa county, October 1. Today John Martin and Ben Owenby were examined before the justice at Enterprise and held in $2000 bonds to appear before the next grand Jury. Jas. Tucker, the robber who was wounded at the time of the robbery, has turned state's evidence and it was through him that the arrests were made. He says the plan to rob the bank was hatched In a saloon at Joseph, of w hich John Martin Is proprietor, and that Martin was the prime mover in the robbery. It was planned to rob the bank during Cashier Miller's absence In La Grande. J. D. McCully, who acted as cashier In Miller's plac e, also worked In the store end only went to the bank at odd times. It was arranged for Martin to take McCully to the bank while Brown, Fltz hugh and Tucker would be watching. and at the proper time they would hold McCully up and rob the bank. Owenby was to glye the signal by walk ing back and forth In front of the bank. Tucker's story was corroborated by the evidence of a number of wit nesses and Martin and Owenby were accordingly held. Ollicers have gone after Geo. Smith, the horse thief that was wounded In the battle with the officers on Corral Creek near Enterprise a few days since. As soon as possible he will be brought in and an examination will then be made. Henry Smith Is now in Jail at Entu prlse, but refuses to make any state ment. Both are strang'.rs and It Is not known where they are from. REVIEW OF TRADE. Encouraging Features Noted In the Grain Market. New York. October 9. R. O. Dun It Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade tomor row will say: Distinctly better conditions of trade have appeared of late and are reflected in the somewhat larger employment of labor, in the larger transactions and In the continued buying of materials for manufacture. A great part of the change Is due to those Irresistible laws of supply and demand which take wheat where It Is wanted and gold where It Is wanted. India Is waiting for cargoes of wheat on the way from the Pacific states, Just as Australia and South America were not so long ago. The surplus, usually available soon disap pears and the surplus from Russia and European countries Is reduced accord ing to late estimate. 75.COO.O0O bushels. Happily, this country has a supply w hich official accounts have not correct ly measured. If actual movements do not mislead. The Atlantic exports are not yet so large as to force prices up ward, if European buying based on European needs did not control our markets. A feature of large Import ance, too. Is the unusual demand for corn, which Is rarely a falling sla-n of deficient crops abroad where other grains are used instead, when .wheat becomes scarce and dear. The failures were 2S8 in the United States against 26S last year and 46 In Canada against S3 last year. GREAT TELEPHONE SERVICE. Special to the Astorian. Canton. October 9. Two unprecedent ed features of the presidential campaign distinguished this eventful day. One w as the call of the Confederate veterans of the Shenandoah Valley, of Virginia, on the Republican presidential nominee; another was the listening to the busi nessmen's and trades demonstrations in Chicago by Major McKlnley at his home. The Central Union telephone' placed groups of half a dozen telephone ear trumpets In the major's library and Mrs. McKlnley's sitting room. These were connected with the long distance telephone wire from Chicago, where re ceivers were located along tbe line of parade. Major McKlnley showed great pleasure at the volume of enthusiastic sounds that reached him over 400 miles of wire The music of bands and the cheers of the crowd were plainly heard. THE GEORGIA VOTE.

GOLD MEASURED BY LABOR The Day's Labor in 173 Which Bought a Dollar In Gold, in 192 Bought 11.47 Gold Has not Appre ciated In Value. The steamer Queen, which left the I Fisher dock at 4:30 last evening, with fifty or seventy-five members of tha McKlnley clubs and drum corps of th city, was met at Chadwell by a large number of citizens of that precinct 'ho I escorted their Astoria visitors to the ' school house where was held one of the I most enthusiastic meetings of the cam paign In Clatsop county. Mr. Cole acted aa chairman of the meeting and about lnO people, men, women and children, jwere present After the rendition of some music by the local quartet, the 1 chairman introduced the speaker of the evening, Hon. T. J. Cleeton. At the outset of his speech, Mr. Cleeton said i there were doubtless some In the room ' who had different opinions, and that he I would be pleased to answer any ques tions which were propounded in good faith, and was more than willing to re- ceive Instruction himself. Mr. Cleeton' 'address was one of the best that bril liant speaker has yet delivered, and j contained many new and pertinent points upon the Uve issues of the pres ent contest. He said In part: j "With reference to the so-called crime of "73, that measure was one which, from the records of congress, Jwas advocated more particularly by the silver men In the sliver mining states than anyone else, and after months of careful deliberation, waa 'voted for by all of the silver men In the house. "If the commercial ratio of silver and gold is to be disregarded by the. gov ernment, and only a coinage ratio con sidered, why not make that ratio 1 to 1 ' Instead of 16 to 1? (In reply, a voice la the house stated that the bulk of sil jver was sixteen times the bulk of gold.) It may be true that there is sixteen times as much silver as gold in the country, but because the bulk of straw is 100 times as great as the bulk of .wheat, does that have any bearing on the price of wheat?" No; If you can legislate a dollar into S3 cents' worth of silver, why not legislate value Into anything else? Would It not be better , to legislate value into the farmers wheat, which would certainly benefit a ( large class of people, rather than to , legislate value tnot something that only ithe silver miner produces, and which , benefits only the few. Three quarters ,of the silver mines of the United States ,are owned by foreign syndicates, and : the remaining one quarter is owend by men in this country' whose wealth ranges from twenty-five million dollars to one dollar. "History shows that every country i w hich has had a coinage ratio different ( from the commercial ratio between sll- ver and gold, is on a silver basis, j "Every nation without gold in circu ; lation, Is on a silver monometallic basis I "Every country that is on a gold standard basts has more silver money In circulation amongst the people than the countries having no gold. "The laboring man in a gold standard country, everything being equal, re ceives more for his money than does the laboring man in the sliver country. The question is often asked If gold has not materially appreciated In the past few years. I would ask what Is the true standard of measure? Is It not human labor? (Voice In the house replied that It was, together with the value of commodities.) In reply to the gentleman who admits that labor la partially the standard of measure, but believes that gold has appreciated, I will make this statement: If gold has appreciated In value, It will take more hours of labor now to get a dollar in gold than It formerly did. If it takes fewer hours of labor since 1873 to earn a dollar In gold, then gold has not ap preciated. Since 1873 the same day's la bor which would buy 100 cents In gold in 1892 would buy $1.47 In gold. The day's labor which in 1860 would buy 100 cents In gold, will now buy 31.60 in gold. "What determines the value of pro ducts and commodities? Human labor. All commodities which have been cheapened since 1873, have been cheap ened by the fact that It now takes less labor to- produce them. The yard of ; calico which In 1873 cost 12V4 cents, now i requires but one-third of the labor to ! produce It aa it did then, and the price (Continued on Fourth Page.)
