money, protection for the laborer, and
the maintenance of the credit of the
Cnlted States. Each and every mem
ber of the club seemed desirous of put
ting forth hla best efforts for the cause.
Committees were appointed to look
after special departments during the
campaign, a meeting night was se
lected for each week, and a committee
appointed to hire permanent head
quarters for the club. During the meet
ing many well known Democrats ad
vanced to the clerk's desk and signed
the roll of the McKlnley Club, declar
ing their Intention to stand by sound
money and the best interests of the
government. As each one marched up
the aisle he was loudly and enthusias
tically chewed, and for a few moments
amidst great confusion, a regular old
time love-feast was held. The presi
dent Anally succeeded In calling the
meeting to order and proceeded with
Its regular business.
Among the well known and tried re
publicans of Clatsop county noticed In
the audience, and w ho took and active
part In the proceedings, were: The
Hon. C. W. Fulton. Hon. F J. Taylor,
mayor of Astoria; Hon. J. H. D. Gray,
county Judge; F. I. Dunbar, county
clerk; G. C. Fulton E. A. Taylor. C. J.
Curtis. Albert Dunbar. Otto Hellborn,
Andrew- Palglty, W. T. Chutter, F. L.
Parker. B. S. Worsley, C. H. Stockton.
Justice Abercromble. W. H. Barker,
and many others equally prominent In
the workings of the club and in Clat
sop county politics.
President Dellinger was in the chair
and culled the meeting to order. In
the absence of Secretary Wherrity. C.
H. Stockton was chosen secretary pro
teni. On motion Thursday night of
each week was selected as the meeting
night, and 7:30 p. m. as the hour for
meeting. The next meeting will be
held tomorrow evening. Hon. C. W.
Fulton, chairman of the executive com
mittee, was Instructed to select per
manent quarters for the club, and his
decision will be announced In these col
umns before the meeting.
A recess was here token, during
which the strangers present were in
vited to come forward and sign the
rolls of the club. Between forty and
fifty of those pn-sent marched to the
front nnd put down their names for
principle nnd hard work. Among them
were a number of well known Demo
crats who announced their Intention of
standing by sound money and protec
tlon regardless of other Issues. As
each one came forward he was cheered
to the echo, and Inst night's meeting of
the McKlnley Club will go down In
history as the most enthusiastic one
held In eight years.
When the meeting was again called
to order, which was only effected by
nsldernble difficulty on the part of
the president, as the proceedings had
partaken much of the nature of a love
feost, entailing considerable confusion,
the following committees were appoint
ed: Music Smith, H. G., Burnett, Bar
ker. Uniforms and torches Taylor, F. J.,
Dunbar, A., Prael, H.

The executive committee was In
structed to write to the Hon. T. T.
Geer and engage hitn to make a speech
in Astoria on the 24th Inst.
On motion of Judge Gray a club yell
or cheer was adopted' to be given on
all occasions under direction of the
captain of the club.
After the meeting adjourned the
young men present arranged a meet
ing tomorrow night for the purpose of
organizing a Young Men's McKlnley
Club. They will probably meet In the
court house. Due notice will be given.
One of the most notable events of the
day was the visit to Astoria of Mr.

were showered upon Wm. J. Bryan on
his trip In the blue-grass region. The
greatest demonstration tendered him In
the south was at Lexington, where he
addressed from 15.000 to 20.000 people
at the fair grounds. A procession,
unique In Its character and impressive
to a large degree, passed by him as he
was on the speaker's stand. People
from the surrounding country got Into
Lexington early this morning, covering
the entire distance on horses. While
Bryan was adressing the audience,
horsemen were seen entering the gates
W'hen the hand shaking was reached,
there was a great rush. The delegation
from Somerset Pa., over 2,000 strong,
was approaching, and It was feared
there would not be time for all to
reach McKlnley. The Pennsylvanlana
had five bands and many banners
and emblems. This delegation of far
mers came over 250 miles.
