Cantos, Sept. 19. In spite of the bad
weather people began pouring into Can
, ton this morning at a lively rate. With
the single exception of yesterday, today
furnished the largest crowd of the cam
paign. The first arrivals were railroad
' men. There were eleven trainloads of
Besides the railroad men the delegates
scheduled for the day' were : Eepubli

the Carnegie steel works at Homestead-,

sylvania railroad, commercial travelers
of Cincinnati and Pittsburg and a num
ber of trains from Northern Ohio.
The Hnlton, Pa., delegation of 1,000
arrived at 11 o'clock. Bain was pouring
down, and they wero received" in the
Grand ODera bouse. The good wishes of
the visitors were extended by General C.
"A. Litchfield and Dr.-C, M, C. Camp
bell. Major McKinley responded.
During the meeting delegates from the
Carnegie city mills, 1,200 strong, came
in, and their reception was also held at
the opera house, L. T. Brown, superin
tendent of the mills, introducing the
party. At 12 :30 ten trains came, com
pleting the Chicago railroad party, and
bringing 4,800 railroad men.
. No hall could be found sufficiently
large for the crowd of railroad men and
they braved the rain to hold their re
ception -on the. lawn. It began to rain
'just as Major McKinley began to speak,
, but he declined to 'have an umbrella
held over him, and stood the shower, as
did his audience. He spoke at some
length on the importance of the railroad
interest, and how it i9 influenced by the
questions of the. present campaign.
When this reception was finished, about
3 o'clock, the representatives of . Mercer
county, Pennsylvania, were awaiting an
audience, and behind them was a large
delegation- from Butler connty, Penn

. Sherman In Montana.
Helena, Mont., Sept. ' 19. United
States Senator John Sherman, of Ohio,
is out West for an outing with General
Miles, and has been visiting yi Helena
while General Miles went north on a
bunting trip, talked about sound money
to a large audience in the Auditorium
here tonight. The speech was , under
the direction of the officers of the state
central committee of the Republican
party. On the platform .were Senator
Thomas H. Carter and ex-Senators
Power and Sanders, besides a number of
members of the McKinley and Hobart
club cf Helena. Governor - Rickard's
private secretary, A. B. Keith, of this
city, aBked permission, at the opening
of the meeting, to submit a list of ques
tions prepared by the silver Republi-
, cans to answer, and sent them to the
platform, but Senator Sherman said that
he had given it. out beforehand that
' those who wished to have questions an
swered should send them to him during
the afternoon, and he would pay no at
tention to those that had not been sent
in that way.. The main part of Senator
Sherman's address was on the financial
question. He went over the history of
the coinage acts of the government 'ever
since the beginning, amd declared that
the silver dollar' had been left out of
consideration in 1853, and that the act
of 1873, known as the "crime of '73,"
did not demonetize silver at all. :
MOT 'AT LEADTIILE.
Threatened Assault by Striking Miner
Has Began. . ..-.
Leadviixk, Sept. 21. At 1 o'clock
this morning, three ' heavy explosions
aroused the sleepers in the eastern ' part
of the city for blocks around the Coro
nada mine, which is the one that first
resumed operations, " and- which was
heavily barricaded, and : well stocked
with provisions and arms.- ' '
lne explosions were followed by a
fusillade of rifle shots, apparently from
within the barricade, and rapid but -ir
regular shots from the outside, apparent
ly from a widely scattered attacking
force, who were on hand to protect the
retreat of the dynamiters.
The shooting lasted for ten minutes,
and all was silent for about five minntes,
when desultory firing was renewed, and
has been kept up ever since.
This office is now being watched by
several hands of men grouped in dark
corners and alleys, and this ma- - mean
they propose to prevent any communi
cations with the telegraph offices, the
watchers not knowing that we have the
leased wire and long-distance telephone.
. The city is in a panic of fear. County
and city officials- are looking after the
work of the police and sheriffs. Bullets
frequently whistle over this office, and
altogether the situation is warlike. -
1 ;50 a. m. A bright blaze has just
broken out at the Coronado, or in the
immediate 'vicinity, and shots are still
being exchanged. : '
2:10 a. m. Citizens,-have gone to
the scene with, whatever arms they can
gather, and a militia company quar
tered across the street has just marched
toward the Coronado under arms. .
' The whistle wbioh calls out all citizens
in case of emergency has just sounded,
and the streets are full of rushing men,
crying women and children.
2:45 a. m. Everything ia on -fire at
the Coronado, and the fire department
is now . working to ' save the bouses,
which are thickly clustered about the
fated shaft-house. Women and children
are rushing to the spot looking for rela
tives and mingling with those who are
being driven from their bouses by the
flames, create a scene of pathos beyond
description. The firemen hope to save
the houses, and are helped' by a beavv
rain, which began falling a few minutes
ago. - .
The miners strike, of which tonight's
lawlessness is the outcome, began three
months ago yesterday. The union scale
of wages in Leadville was $3 for every
body, but in 1893, when the price of
eilver dropped below 60 cents an ounce,
an agreement "was made that. $2.50
should be accepted for some classes of
work until silver should return to 83
cents.. : . - .
.'.All the State Troop Ordered Oat.
Denver, Sept. 21. At 2:30 this (Mon
day") morning, Sheriff Newman, of Lead
ville, and Judge Owers, of the district
court of Lane county, called upon Gov
ernor Mclntyre for troops to quell the
riot at Leadville. The governor at once
issued the call, and before daylight the
entire military force of the state will be
en route for the scene -of the trouble.
The troops from this City, two infantry
companies and a battery, will reach
Leadville by noon.

stantly , recurring that Simmons Liver

eight years and find it the best medicine

such medicine as Simmons Liver Regu

What 16 to 1 Mas Never Done. , ' v
It has never kept gold and silver at a
It has never once given ns, under free
coinage, practical bimetallism that is,
the concurrent circulation of gold and
silver. - .
The ratio of 16 to 1 was adopted in
1834. It represented the then commer
cial ratio, the market values of the two
metals. " ; '
In the 40 years following the adoption
of this ratio and up to 1874 there were
coined less than 7,000,000 silver dol
lars, or not so many by- 600, 000- as were
coined from Jan. 1 to July - 1 in this
year. .-.-'-., - . . .
And never during., the whole period
did gold and silver circulate freely to
gether as equal money., What reason has
Mr. Bryan -for his "firm conviction"
that they will do so now under freei
coinage, when the difference in the com-1
mercial ratio is far greater than at any'
time during the period from 1834 . to
1873?- . - . j.;-. .... ,.
