New fork, January '-'T -The third annual banquet of tba National Association of Manufacturers of the United States, which took place tonight the Waldorf-Astoria hotel, was one 'A the largest and most elal> orate ttfaira of the kind ever given in this city. One thousand were seated at tba tables. Presifent McKmley was driven from the Windsor Hotel and was received at the WatJorf- Astoria Hotel at ti.30 by a com inittee of merchants, and he held a leiee in the reception room for more than an hour. President McKinley with n committtce of thirty-six, marched into tbe banquet hall, the baud playing 'Hail to the Chief." It after nine whun Warner Miller lappeil for order and announced that Re'. R. S. MacArthur would invoke tho blessing. Among those who soat8 of honor on a raised dias were: President McKinloy, M E. Infjalls, Elihu Root, John 1'ortei. Attornei General John W. Griggs, Warner Miller, President Theodore 0. Search and Abtior MoKinley. The menu cards which vere lery elaborate tolumes in bound in undressed i.alf, with a monogram burned into tho surrounded by a scroll. At 10.30 Warner Miller rapped for order. He referred to the youth ol the association, and said the meeting would be productive of more good than acjtbicg that had bean held in this country time. Miller then introduced Theodore 0. Search, president of tbe association who spoke briefly. Tbo-wildeet enthusiasm prevailed when President McKinley was introduced. Men stood in their seats and women in boies waved "the handkerchiefs. Tbe -uproar drowned the speaker's voice. The cheering was redoubled whan a toast WBJ drunk to the president. President McKinley spjke sloulyaod wai plainly heard in every por- tion of the ball. After thanking the assembly for its cor- dial greeting, tho president re-called the circumstances of welcoming the club at its initial meeiing in Cincinnati three years when he was of Ohio. He bttid he with the purposes of the association then and wus in full accord with ite intentions now Continuing, he said: National politics tan encourage industry and commerce, but it remains tor the people to project and uarrythemon If these policies stimulate industrial development and energy, the P80ple eau be safely trusted to do the The government, however, is restricted in its power to promote industry. It MD aid commerce but can not create it. People must build and operate factories, furnish ships, cargoes for canals, rivers rnd was. It ia they who must find consumers, obtain by going forth to win .t. It is our duty to make American enterprise, indus- trial ambition, as well as achievement, terms of respect, and praise not _ only at home bit among tie family of nations the world over. There is another duty resting upon the national government-to "coin money and regulate the value thereof." This duty re- quires that our government shall regulate the valae of ite money by tbe highest stand- ards ol commercial honesty and nationa honor. Whatever may be the language of tne contract tbe United States dis- charge all its obligations in a curerncy recognised as the best throughout the civil- ized world at the times of payment. Nor will we ever consent that the wages of labor 01 ite frugal savings shall be scaled down, hy permitting payment in dollars of !ess value than the dollars accepted as the best in every enlightened nation of the existing conditions our citizens can not be excused if they do not redouble their efforts to secure such financial legis- lation as will place them honorable inten- tons beyond dispute. This is our plain duty to more than seven millons of voters who gftcen months ago won great political battle on this among .others, that the TJnited States government would per- mitHouMastothe stability and integrity ol its currency or the inviolability of its obli- gations of every kind. That is my interpre- tation of that victory. Whatever effort, therefore, is required to mate a settlement of this vital question clear and conclusive ior all time we we bound ID g con- science to undertake and if possible realize. That is our eornmiision, our prssent charter i from the people.

The republican party, he had foreclosed its right to use tbe term bimetallism when the St. Louis plat- form was adopted. The whole drift, purpose and intent of this adminietratif n has been avowed and proclaimed by Gage before the banking committee and it is to irrevocably commit tbe .government to the gold stand- ard. Hartman said he knew many republi- cs who were opposed to tbe retirement of greenbacks. "But." said he, "what will they do about it when the banking and cur- rency committee report a bill to retire greenbacks? If we may judge the iuture by COMMISSION ALL RIGHT.

"I have told those complainants time and again that if they did not like the tyranny of the speaker they should shear him of his power.'' "I'm afraid the gentleman from Montana has got his cloak rooms mixed." interposed Quigg, republican of New York. "Perhaps I retorted Hartman. "But I give notice that those who are mn- ing their cloakrooms now will do so in 18'W and 1900 and will triumph eventually i.pon tbe declarations of the Chicago platform and under the leadership of William J.
