It was fitting, perhaps, that tho patri

There was a momontouH pauso while
'the body awaited tho notion that might

tlui anticipated contest did not take
place. Ko ono was placed in nom

nnd when tho question was sub
(tnltted thero was not an opposing vote
to Mr. Fassett's election.
"Your temporary chairman, gentlo-

Mr. Fassett said, as Boon as ho could

tho report of tho committee on organ

tho committee reported Gov. William
McKlnley, of Ohio, for permanent chair
man. A magnificent ovation greeted tho
governor when he stepped to tho chair
on tho platform. Temporary Chairman
Fassett introduced his successor, say
ing: "Tho chairman, gentlemen of tho

your permnncnt chairman, tho chair
desires to thank you most heartily for
the kind forbenranco which yon havo
extended to him. I now have the honor
and tho distinguished pleasure to intro
duce Hon. William McKlnley, of Ohio."
Temporary Chairman Fassett retired
nmld great applauso and thero was pro
longed and renewed cheers nnd waving
of banners, after which Gov. McKlnley
spoke as follows:
I thank you for tho honor of presiding over
tho ninth quadrennial convention of tho repub

Wo propose to rnlso our money to pay publlo
expenses by taxing tho products of other na

own Applauso. Tho democratic party be
lieve In direct luxation, that Is In taxing our
selves, but wo don't bolluvo In that prin
ciple, so long ns w o can find nnybody tho to tux.
Our proteetlvo tariff not only docs everything
which n rovenuo tux Is doing, raising nil needed
revenues, but a protcotlvo tariff docsmuru. A
protective tariff encourages und stimulates
American industries and gives tho widest
possibilities to American genius and Amer
ican effort. Does nnybody know nhat
tnrlP reform is? ,(N'o, no, and laughter):
nnd that is to bo tho platform of our
political opponents this your. What docs It

From tho first one ho mado In Now York when
ho raid ho did not know anything about
the tariff until his last ono in lthodo Island,
you como nway Ignorant und uninformed
an lo what tariff reform mruni. Sluco

cratic party upon tho same principle to xym
bollzo and present turlff rotorm. You may go
to Mills, you may go to Springer, and you will
tlni they dlffor totally; but you may go to
tho houso of representatives at Wushlug

what thoy call a tariff reform Issue, with

mo natno them: First, freo tin plate, leaving
sheet steel from which It Is made tariffed; that
Is, tbo finished product freo and the raw mato.
rial bearing a duty. Second, freo wool to tho
manufacturer and tariffed cloth to the con
sumer. Third, freo cotton ties to tho cotton
states and tariffed hoop iron to all tho rc.t of
tho states. That is their Idea of tariff reform.
Henry lilngham, of Pennsylvania,
presented tho report of tho rules com
mittee and it wtts adopted by acclama
tion. Ex-Governor Fornker aroso In re
sponse to tho call for tho committee on
resolutions nnd requested further time
to consider tho resolutions. An exten

now national committeemen.
When Iowa was called and tho re
election of Clarkson, tho Illnino leader,

of Ulchurd C. Kerens tho Harrison dele

which had been introduced and sent to

referred to tho committee on resolu
tions. "Tho next thing on tho list Is tho

A glanco at tho rules showed that
