was enthusiastic and the delegation
applauded nearly every sentence Major
McKinley spoke. The presentation of
the Republican press association by W.
E. Morris was unusually witty and en
tertaining. He said:
"The bill that Is allied with your ,
name was such a one as to make you
dear to West Virginia people, and
causes West Virginia Republicans, w ith
other reasons, to believe that you are
the most suitable man in all this land
for president. A tariff bill that will at
once yield sufficient revenue to supply
was cast. On the other hand, lack of every proper need of the arovemment
organization In the Democratic ranks and properly protect American Indus
tries is what West Virginia desires.
Without protection our vast natural
wealth Is chained and helpless."'
Major McKinley said: "Nothing Is
more vital to the standing and prog
ress of a country than the preservation
of its credit and financial honor. Noth
ing is of greater moment to the wel
fare of the country than the adoption
of a policy which will give to labor
