Canton, O., Oct- 17, 1S3G. Canton, the
home of William McKinley, has en
many marvelous events in this campaign,
but none which eaaaled that of today.
More men and women, more special
trains, more delegations, more assur
ances of loyalty to aatioaal honor, more
addresses and more responses by Maj.
McKinley than on any previous day,
were the record of this seventeenth day
of October, 1816. From morning until
night the number of special trains, the
bouts and cheers of delegations, the
music of bands,' the glitter of uniforms
and the addresses of spokesmen and n
ponsea of Maj. McKinley 'were heard.
Nearly 500 cars brought perhaps 30,000
Itcople from nearly half the states of
the union.
Mr. McKinley. who left his home early
for a short walk in the crisp October
air. found an anxious throng at his resi
dence on his return, and from that
moment until long after darkness he was
the center of attraction, the recipient of
honors innumerable and tlu dispenser of
patriotic sentiments which were received
with marks of the highest approval by
tj.o thousands who heard them.

of five battalions, a total of 3000 men,

Assurances that They Are for Sound

One of the earliest parties was made
up of farmers from Monroe county,
Midi- to whom Maj. McKinley said?
"1 have never believed, as some poo-
pic have been sayiug,

when I had the slightest doubt about

ilarge ftolegatloas from Oblo and Other
States Greet Maj. McKinley..
Another large and interesting delega
tion was made up of commercial travel
ers, mostly from Ohio and adjoining
states. They were addressed by Mr.
McKinley as follows:
"You have discovered in the last four
years that it is a good deal safer to con
sult markets than maxims. You have
discovered that prices current and actual
experience in trade and commerce are a
better guide to business prosperity than
anything you can find in the text books.
Your coming together. Democrats and
ICepubucans (a voice: No Democrats in
this crowd') well, once Democrats, but
now preferring country to party. Com
ing together as you have is an act of
sterling patriotism hitherto almost un
known in American politics, and pro
moted only by considerations of the pub
lic good. But these are characteristic
traits of the business and commercial
men of the country.
"I do not attribute your call to any per
sonal concern for my success. You look
beyond the candidate to the great princi
ples he represents, and upon that ground
and in that spirit you are here today;
and in the same spirit I address you
now. No people in the country can be
more interested in the result of the elec
tion two weeks from next Tuesday than
the commercial men of the United
Suites. (Applause.) What you want is
business, and you have discovered that
you cannot sell if there is nobody to buy.

Inisincss. and above all. the absence of
confidence. Shall these commercial men
now embark in the vastly more disas
trous and destructive jiolicy of free sil
ver, which is tlie party shibboleth, not
of honor but of dishonor?
"A great many people find peculiar
pleasure in the word 'free.' It is a
grand, glorious word when properly ap
plicd. I do not know what you may
think about it. but I do not believe in de
stroying cither the business, the prop
erty. r the credit of this country under
the cry of free silver. (Tremendous
cheers and cries of Xcver. never.') We
have just pride in our glorious record in
favor of free siicecb, free soil, free press,
free men and free conscience, but I be
lieve that the great majority of our coun
trymen are neither in favor of free trade,
free silver, or free lawlessness (great ap
plause), nor of cheating people in the
sacred name of freedom.
"The question of honest money against
free and irredeemable paper money, both
unlimited aud both unsound, has been
so thoroughly argued that I do not wish
to occupy your time in discussing it.
Suffice it to say that no valid or suffi
cient reason has yet been given, or can
be given, for the United States adopting
either. Some things are so plain, some
things arc so clear and distinct, some
things are so palpable and self-evident
that, like day and night, every man must
sooner or later recognize them. If hu
man experience has proved anything, it
is that no nation was ever benefited bv
poor money or injured by good money.
and that no man ever suffered from be-
ing honest, and no man ever nrofited br
Itoing dishonest. (Great cheers.) Good,
honest dollars hurt uoliody. If we have
not as much good money as we ought to
have, let us get more, and we will get
more- whenever the country requires it.
But we will not get it as long as we are
proposing to adopt the financial policy of
China or Mexico. Give business confi
dence a chance to be restored. Start our
mills, factories, mines, quarries; restore
good prices, good home markets for our
fanners, good wages for our working
men, and then, if the law of supply and
demand requires it. coin in honest dol

lars will succdily come for be uses of

Citizen or Kentucky Join in Sapport of
McKinley anil Honei Money.
A large delegation from Kentucky,
composed of both Republicans and sound
money Democrats, was one of the most
demonstrative in honoring the Repub
lican candidate. To them Mr. McKinley
address you not as Republicans nor
Democrats, but as countrymen and
friends. Your glorious old state has al
ready registered a verdict in favor of
one of the principal issues involved in
this campaign., I do not believe that in
the past twelve months the Kentucky
people have changed their opinions on
the questions of honest money and public
honor. (Great applause and cries of 'Xo,
no.') Kentucky has usually been a Dem
ocratic state, and in 1S76 gave that
sturdy Democratic statesman. Samuel
J. Tilden of New York, an unprecedent
ed popular majority for President. His
memory is doubtless revered by many of
your Democrats today, and I venture to
send bv you this message to them in Mr.
Tildcn'a own words.
"In his celebrated joint debate with
Horace .Greeley, in 1840, Mr. Tilden said:
An unstable currency produces instabil
ity of prices and is peculiarly injurious
to the farmer. He ought not to be sub
ject to the tremendous agency of an un
seen cause, which may disappoint his
wisest calculations and overwhelm him
in constant ruin, but he ought to be se
cured in the tranquillity of his fircsido
from the curse of an unstable and con
flicting currency.' (Great appla"se.)

"Another issue, my fellow citizens, in
this campaign is the tariff. (Applause.)
That is to say, whether we shall laise
sufficient revenue to pay the current ex
penses of the government instead of bor
rowing niouey for that purpose, and
whether we shall do our work at home
or have it done abroad. (Great applause

Laboring Men from All Part of the State
Are Greeted.
No delegation was more cordially wel
comed than that made up of railroad
men, dock men. farmers and miners from
Ohio, to whom Maj. McKinlev said:
J Here is a studied effort made in
some quarters of this country to teach
that the employer of labor is attempting
to enslave the workingman. I submit
to you uieu of toil all around and about
me. who is the better friend of labor, he
who gives you work that brings content
ment, or he who breathes only words
that create discontent? There cannot
be. there ought never to be, anv enmitv
between labor and capital. The interes't
of the one is the interest of the other.
You know that the greatest friend of
slavery is idleness. They talk about
making the workingmen slaves. There
is no danger of a workingman ever be
coming a slave if he receives American
wages, the w.-ges that he had for thirty
years, from 1SC0 to 1800. under the glori
ous policy of a protective tariff. The
best friend to lalior. the best policv in
the interest of labor, is that noliev which
gives workingmen an ooportunity to work
at good wages. Which policy do von
minK suuserves tnat interest best? Our
policy of protection or their policy of free
trade? (Tremendous shouts. 'Ours!
Ours!' and 'McKinlcy's policy!')

"There is one thing that can be said
about the Republican party it can cele
brate the anniversaries of all the great
American statesmen, no matter to what
party they may have belonged, who
stood for the country and its honor.
We have no difficulty in celebrating, too,
with' our Democratic friends, the anni
versary of Jefferson, Jackson and Ben
ton. We celebrate those anniversaries
with the same satisfaction that we cele
brate the anniversaries of the early
statesmen who were more nearly of our
political belief.
"When we reflect the development of
all this wealth is in a state of less than

not yet 2.500,000 in number, we can be
gin to realize how great is our country.
Can it be possible that such a magnifi
cent commonwealth will ever lend her
iufluence to free silver, free trade, dis
honor ami partial or entire repudiation?
('No, no. never.') No, I say, forever no.
What the people of this country want,
whether they dwell in Michigan or Ten
nessee or Ohio, is a policy that will pro
tect and defend every American inter
est against the outside world, from any
quarter. What we want is a tariff put
upon foreign goods high enough to not
only give us revenue enough to run( the
government, but to afford adequate 'pro
tection to every American industry and
occupation. This is the policy of the
Renublican party.
"What we want is to restore a policy
that will enable us to pay as we go,
both government and people. We have
not been doing that for four years past.
I am sure your great and grand state
can be relied upon to enroll itself in the
column of national honor as against re
pudiation, of a protective tariff, reci
procity and the maintenance everywhere
of public order, tranquillity and the su
premacy of law."
Employment and Good Money Are De
fired by All.
There were railroad men on all sides
of Maj. McKinley when he began his
fourteenth address. One party repre
sented the Michigan Central. Auother
came from Columbus, O., and represent
ed the Pennsylvania lines entering that
city. Still another party represented the
Erie employes of Cleveland. To all
these Maj. McKinley said:
"There is not a workingman in this
audience who would not rather work for
a good road than a poor road; and there
is not an employe in this great audience
' that wo"hl not rather bo paid iu good
money than poor money. (Applause.)
"What you want first and above all
else is employment. What yon want is
to get on the pay roll of a good railroad
company, for you have to get on the pay
roll before you can get anything out of
the pay car. to which my friend has al
luded. (Great cheering.) But in order
to get on the iuiy roll the railroads must
have business. You know when busi
ness is poor with the railroads some of
you are stricken from the pay roll.
(Cries of 'That's right.') Yon have ex-
perienced that in the last three years and
a half. What you are interested in,
therefore, is the general prosperity of the
country. We want every factory in the
land to be at work. We want every
mine in the country to be busy. (A
voice: 'Not the silver mines.') My
friend says no silver mines. We are
willing that our silver mines shall be
busy; I hope every one of them, too.
will be busy; but if they were all put to
work and every mint was at work they
would not furnish employment for one
third of the idle men in this country who
earn their living by toil.
"You have to get your employment in
the great, active, busy industries of the
country. This is where you get your
work and wages, and when these great,
busy industries are at work your rail
roads have plenty of traffic. (Great ap
plause.) When your railroads have plen
ty of traffic you have constant and
steady employment at good wages. Is
not that so? (Cries of 'Yes. yes.')

prosperity you once enjoyed? (Cries of

people say that the way to get it back
is to debase the money of the country.
Does anybody believe that? (Cries of
'No, no.') Some people seem to think
that the way to get back prosperity is
to strike a deadly blow at the capital
of the country. Is that the way to do it?
(Cries of 'No, no.') Some people seem
to think that the way to put men at
work is to despoil the profits of the men
who employ labor. Is that the way to

but an enemy of the very best interests
of every citizen in the country. I would
rather teach that doctrine which is so
prevalent this year. North and South,
where none ar. fer iwrty, but all for gov
ernment. This is the true policy of
sturdy American citizenship and civiliza
tion. I look into your earuest faces and
believe I know what is in your hearts.
(Cries of 'McKinley, McKinley.) There
is but one aim and purpose, and this is
that you may have an opportunity to
work for yourselves and your families.
This opportunity is best enjoyed when we
de our own work iu the Uuited States
and not in some other country of the
world. This opportunity cannot be
reached, however, until we have a re
turn of confidence, which can come only
when the American people have settled
for all time that they will have no de
preciated currency and declare that the
principles of the Republican party shall
he upheld.
"When confidence comes, money will
come. If you had all the silver in the
world in the United States it would not
make more business. Business makes
money, money does not make business.
Every one of you had plenty of work at
good wages until the free trade policy
was inaugurated in- 1SJKL We want to
restore our protective policy. We have
good money now, but we have little busi
ness confidence. No business man will
manufacture if he does not believe that
at the end of the year he will make a
profit. The business man xrannot plan
for the trade if he docs not know what
kind of competition he is to have from
abroad. The less he has of foreign com,
petition the more work you have at homo
at better wages and prices.
"Nothing" gives me greater satisfaction
or calls from me deeper gratitude than
to have the wo; ingmen of this country
enroll themselvc on the side of good
government, sound currency, and the su
premacy of law."
We do not believe in wanton cruelty
under any circumstances; Mr. Bryan
should see to it at once that the ropes of
his parachute are in good working order.
The best way to deal with a panic is to
vote it to death in advance.
The Boy Orator has become irritable.
He scolds the people and calls names.
He started out on his campaign ia good
temier and in good voice. lie still has
the voice.
If Bryan will look at his haad again
he will find that there are fear cards
instead of five in his flush.
The crime of 'ui must be lost, strayed
or stolen. It has been conspicuass by its
absence in Popocratic speeches far sev
eral weeks.
William McKinley never advocated the
passage or a law which was designed to
take money out of the pockets of Ameri
can workingmen.
Bryan is misled into thinking "tlie
eonntrv is going to the dogs" by the
snarlfjr of Altgeld and Tillman. The
country will go after these dogs on No
vember 3 for a brief period, but when
J the country returns there won't be any
more dogs worth mentioning.
Here's a "straw" for Bryan: Out of
twenty-nine voters "in trouble" at the
Center street police court in New York
city Sunday morning, twenty-seven de
clared they would if at liberty vote for
Mr. Bryan. The other two were unde
cided. "Patriotism,
