Political News.
Ai.banv, N. Y., Hept. OS.—Thik was
the day set for the visit to John Hoyd
Thacher. who was nominated for gov
ernor by tho Democrats la»t week, by
tlie committee of five appointed at the
meeting of the state Democratic com
mittee Tuesday to officially notify Dim
of Ills nomination, but in advance of
their coming he gave out a letter an
nouncing Dis declination.
In this stuiement Mr. Thacher said:
“While I had not sought tiie nomina
tion or requested a single delegute to
give me bis support, I was willing and
eager to contend against that system
of bossism' which is to-day in control
of the public affair* of the state of
New York. I was prepared to organ
ize the Democratic party from one
end of the state to the other on u line
j of battle against that system, and to
I wage an unremitting and vigorous
“It has developed in the considera
tion of the resolution by which the
state committee appointed your com
mittee, as well us iu the public press
and other public and private coramun
desire on the part of the Democratic
parly to contest the election' on the
abstract question of the unlimited
coinage of silver at the unalterable
ratio of 16 to 1 as compared with gold,
and to ignore or subordinate every
other state issue.
"It is apparently the purpose of the
party at this time to make the accept
ance of an extreme political sentiment
the sole test of a candidate of the
Democracy. It does not seem to be
enough that men are willing to sup
port the regular candidate on the reg
ular Democratic ticket, but they are
required to subscribe to every letter
and phrase of that platform.
"It is impossible for me, with the
views 1 hold, to make a contest on the
coinage issue. I believe in the good
old Democratic doctrine of the Joint
free and equal use of gold and sliver.
This doctrine is as far removed from
the single use of gold, which enables
speculators to juggle with its value, as
it is from that other principle which
seeks to establish an impossible ratio
for its sister metal. I feel that as an
honorable man I should make way for
some one who can carry the banner
with that device.”
The probable outcome of Mr.
Thacher'a declination will be the in
dorsement by a branch of the regular
Democracy of Daniel Q. Griffin, the
national Democratic nominee, on the
state issues, and the indorsement of
a Populist candidate by the radical
silver men. It is believed that this is
satisfactory to Mr. Hill.
Tammany hall, however, may in
sist upon its own candidate, and at
the state committee meeting on
Monday night they may fight for the
promotion of Judge Porter to first
place aud Elliot Danforth to second.
It is absolutely denied that Mr.
Ilryan wrote any letier to Mr.
Thacher asking his withdrawal, nor
did he intimate to unyone such a de
sire. The story was made out of
whide story.

Major MoKInloj Sptaki About Labor and
Capital and Clan Prejudice.
Caktos, Ohio, Sept. 1'8. — A special
train bearing several hundred com
mercial travelers from Peoria, 111.,
sou vicinity reached here at 0 o'clock
this morning. The men were uni
formed in light colored linen dusters
and black silk hats and each csrrlsda
large bunch of red, white and blue
plumes. They went direct to the Mc
Kinley residence whero they were
presented by i. V. draff, Congressman
of the Fourteenth Illinois district
Major McKinley responded In part
as follows- "More than 120 years
have passed since the government
was founded and in every trial of our
history we have demonstrated our ca
pacity (or self government and shown
to all mankind the use and advanta
ges of the great republic. Now und
then in our popular elections we may
have been swayed by passion, or
moved by the demagogue from our
moorings, but the American people
are not fooled but once on a subject,
for once deceived they never follow
the deceiver the second time.
"1 have known and so have you
times in our history when the in ijor
it.v of the people were made to believe
that certain policies would serve their
best interests and when it transpired
thul they did not, they turned upon
the party which deceived them an 1
turned it out of power. And they
will do it again. The judgment of
the people is swift und terrible
against those who mislead and delude
them. The people are never led
astray by deceit or misrepresentation
when they investigate for them
selvea This they are doing
this year in a marked degree.
It is of no avail that party lead
ers appeal to passion when the
people are alive to their own and tho
public interests It will not dotoauy
to the men who are poor in this
world's goods: ‘You must get off ny
yourselves, fonn a class of your own,
your interests are opposed to those
who employ you.’ That is not enough
this year. The workingman asks:
'Wliat good will tnat do me, how will
that better my condition, how will
that bring bread to ray family and
cheer to ray children? How wili I bn
benefited by despoiling my employer?
Will It give me more employment an I
better wages to strike those down
whose money is invested in produc
tive enterprises, who give me work
[ and wages?’
"Four years ago it was said that
manufacturers were making too much
money. You remember it. liut it
cannot be said now. And that the
‘robber tariff' which was enriching
. him must be torn up, root and branch,
to the end that he should lie deprived
! of what some people were pleased to
j call ‘Ul-gotten profits.’ The country
j seemed to share in the sugeestion aud
I the trial was entered upon with what
result every manufacturer, com
, mercial man, traveling man or work
ingman best knows It has been dis
covered to our hurt and sorrow that
you cannot injure the manufacturer
without injuring the laborer.
"It has been found, too, that you
cannot injure the manufacturer wtth
I out injuring the whole business of tbe
country. You may cloae the shops by
adverse tariffs because yon imagine
the manufacturer is making too much,
I but with that done you close the door
of employment in tne face of the
1 laborer whose only capital is his labor.
! You cannot punish tbe one without
: punishing the other, and our policy
1 would not inflict the slightest injury
upon either. In such a case, ‘getting
i off together,’ does not do either any
"Arraying labor against capital is
a public calamity and an irreparable
injury to both. Class appeals are dis
honest and dishonorable. They cal
i cuiate to separate both when they
| should be united. Our economic in
| terests are common and indivisible.
“Gentlemen, aud I speak to my
countrymen everywhere, if yon have
not yourselves been among the most
fortunate, I pray you think of your
boys and girls aud place no obstacles
in their pathway to the realization ol
every lofty and honorable ambition
which they may have. I pray God
that the burdens of classes may never
be imposed upon American manhood
and American womanhood.”

Portland, Me., Sept. VO—John R.
Gentry yesterday, at Rigby park,
paced the fastest mile ever made in
harness, and placed the world’s rec
ord at 2:00X
The day was cold and light north
westerly winds were blowing up the
stretch when John R. Gentry, with
W. S. Andrews on the sulky, appeared
to go against his record of 2:01 X.
made on September 8, this year, at
Glenn's Falls, N. Y. The famous pacer
scored once or twice with the moner
who was to pace him, and then went
up the stretch on what was to be the
fastest mile ever done by a horse '
The runner was at the pucer's throat
ss they made the tirst turn on the
stretch. Gentry went steadily and
with apparent ease, the runner hav
ing hard work keeping his position.
The judges caught the quarVr mile at
.Vt*X, “i*1 Hie second quarter was
made In .30'*, making the half tnile in
69 X- The runner, by the use of the
whip, was keeping up at Gentry’s
wheel, hut was making hard work of
it. The third quarter was made in
30**, making tin: three-quarters in
1:301s. As they turned into the home
stretch and caught the wind in the
teeth, the crowd yelled wildly.
The pacer madr a great spurt, con
sidering that he had the wind in his
teeth, and made the most remarkable
quarter of the heat :S0%. making the
mile in r.OOX, just one second less
than the former best record first made
by Robert J. at Terre Haute in 1 •»!*-*»,

When Starter Culberson announced
the tune the crowd broke through the
fence and crowded out on the track

would have made the mile in two
minutes easily.

upon the silver question. The ineeliug
was under the auspices of the Non
1 Partisan Bryan Silver club. His
speech was entirely non-partisan and
a carefully prepared exposition of the
principles of the bimetallists. He did
not say for whom lie was goii.g to
vole and did not give any advice to
the audience.
He said that William McKinley was
nominated by the free silver Repub
licans. "Why,” he asked, "did they
nominate him? Because they sup
posed that he stood upon the Ohio
platform adopted by the convention
which presented his name as a candi
date for the nomination." He then
read from the reports of that conven
tion to show that its platform was a
broad declaration in favor of both
gold and silver. Johu Sherman pre
sided over this convention, and Col.
Van Horn said that this was for the
purpose of showing the people that
the friends of McKinley were united
in favor of free silver.
He said there was such a McKinley
sentiment in the free silver stales Uiat
the gold men became alarmed, and
that they then began to spring favor
ite sons in a vain attempt to beat Mc
Kinley. lie said that when they
failed in this they put jp a scheme
upon the nominee, and by a conspir
acy put him upon a gold platform. It
wasn’t as sirong a gold platform as
the Republican campaign orators
' make out. he said, in that it declared
: for bimetallism "when the other na
tions get ready to let us have It.”
while the campaign speakers are de
nouncing bimetallism altogether.
Finally lie came down to ft personal
explanation of his own position at the
present time. "I am myself in a
rather peculiar position as a Repub
lican just now,” he said "I was
| elected us the Congressman from this
| district upon a free silver platform.
' nud upon every stump iu the district 1
I pledged the people that 1 would sup
| port this platform. Now, the time
for the expiration of that pledge does

Report —Gratifying Showing.
Renfrew, of Oklahoma, has hied with
the Secretary of the Interior his an
nual report for the year ending June
30, 1696. The report begins with the
declaration that “the development of
the territory In the year past has
been equal to, If not greater, than
that of other portions of the United
States. Nowhere has the year past
been more marked for material pro
gress. The acreage of land in cultiva
tion has steadily increased,/and ha
very nearly reached the proper ratio o’
farm land to pasture. The prospect for
crops is good and the ante-be'lum
declaration, ‘cotton is king,’ seems
applicable to Oklahoma Oklahoma
will shortly rank among the cotton
states of the ITnion. Unless the pres
ent indications fail, the present cot
ton crop of Oklahoma will be by far
the greatest ever gathered, and 1 pre
dict for the coming year one of gen
uine prosperity.”
Oklahoma's population is shown to
have increased from 212,626 in 13'JI tc
276,637 in 1696. The most populous
county is Woods, with 20,806. The
various Indian reservations contain a
population of 12,600.
