Cleveland, O., Aug. 30. - Whlle President McKínley very much desired to pay more than a brieí visit to his oíd home in Cantón, he finds that the duties of his office are such that he will be obliged to cut his visit there to a mere cali. The president will spend a couple of days in camp at Montauk Point and Camp Wikoff so as to correctly inform himsplf as to the condition of affairs and the truth of the reports that have been circulated from personal observation and contact with the men. The presidential party will be at Colonel Myron T. Herrick's residence, "The Overlook," on Euclid heights, in this city, until Thursday morning, when they will leave for Cantón. Big preparations have been made to receive the president and Mrs. McKinley there by their old friends and neighbora, and the people of Cantón in general. It was che intention to make the occasion 'a civil jubilee. All this, however, will now be reduced in a measure from the fact that President MeKinley and party will only be in Cantón for two or three hours and will then take a train for New York. Undoubtedly the president will be given a royal welcomfi during his short stop-over in Canton. On the eastern trip, which is part of the programme outlined, the presidential party will hardly stop longer at New York than will be necesssary to catch a train for Camp Wikofï and Montauk Point. The president will probably be in camp at the two places mentioned on Friday and Saturday, leaving Mrs. McKinley in New York city, whither he will return to spend Sunday and then go back to Washington,
