This is a very unusual spectacle. I

notice here the mothers and wives, as
well as the sons and husbands, because,
my friends, our cause is the cause in
which the whole family is interested.
If we are entitled to succeed in this
campaign, it is because the principles

A PRACTICAL QUESTION.
Politics is a practical question, and
it is so simply because it can be com
prehended by our people. I want to I
talk practical politics to you for a little
while this afternoon.
Here Mr. Bryan read an extract from
Mr. Carlisle's speech of 1876, and com
menting on it, said:—
John (i. Carlisle divided society Into
two classes? On the one side he put
the idle holders of idle capital, on the
other side he pat the struggling masses
who produce the wealth and pay the
taxes of the country. (Applause.) If
that division existed then it exists to
day. More than that, John (t. Car
lisle said that a public officer sworn to
do his duty would be controlled in his
official conduct by his sympathies, and
if his sympathies were with the idle
holders of idle capital he would coin
as little money as possible, whereas, if
his sympathies were with the strug
gling masses he would coin as much as
the law would permit. (Applause.)
This is the language of John tf. Car
lisle, not uttered when he was young,
as might be openly charged, and has
been, against me. (Laughter.) It was
when he was seven years older than 1
am now. (Applause and laughter.) I
believe he spoke the truth when he I
said that society was divided into these
two classes upon any "question involv
ing money. I believe he was right
when he said that if a man's sym-;
pathies were with the struggling'
masses he would favor a larger amount I
of money than he would if his sym
pathies were with the idle holders of'
idle money. 1
THE ISSUE OF THE DAT. j
My friends, the issue today is an is- i
sue between the idle holders of idle:
money and the struggling masses who j
produce the wealth and pay the taxes :
of the country. (Applause.) And i
when this is understood, when men j
find out about the money question,
you will find that if there is a man in
your community whose interests, whose
sympathies are with the idle holders of
idle money, he will be in favor of a
gold standard, and not daring to say
so, he will talk about "honest money"
and a "sound dollar." (Applause.) But
if his sympathies are with those who
produce the nation's wealth he will be
for the gold and silver coinage of the
Constitution, no matter how many |
times you call him an Anarchist. They ,
tell us that these prominent financiers
are going to leave the Democratic par j
ty because it declares for the restora-1
tion of silver. We shall not go into
court to secure an order to prevent
their going. (Laughter and applause.)
NO LONGER HANDICAPPED. j
The Democratic party has been
weighed down by those who want to
use the party organization for priyate
gain and their country for public
Let me read a little further from
Mr. Carlisle's speech.
A Voice? Why do you read from
Why ? Because no man has present
ed a more forcible argument in favor
of bimetallism than Mr. Carlisle has.
(Great applause and cheering.) Let
me read now what he says of that bill.
"But it will certainly offer some relief.
It will reverse the grinding process
that has been going on for the last few
years." Away back, eighteen years
ago, he spoke of this as the grinding
process, and, my friends, it does not
lighten the effects of the grinding pro
cess to call it a temporary embarrass
Again quoting Mr. Carlisle, Mr.
Bryan continued as follows:—
He understood the laws of finance.
He understood what was the effect of
adding this money to the circulation,
and, my friends, if he stated the truth
then, that truth has not changed since
then, nor can it be changed, though
every one who spoke for it should turn
his back upon it. (Applause.) Trnth

INTERESTS ALL FARMERS.
My friends, this is a practical ques
tion that confronts the farmers of the
United States, and not of the United
States alone, but the farmers of Ire
land, the farmers of England and the
farmers of Germany and the farmers
of every nation in the world that have
the gold standard to day.
I assert that tha gold standard could
not live for one day in any nation un
der the sun without the aid of the
money owners and the money chang
ers to keep in it existence. I assert
that the gold standard has never re
ceived the indorsement of any class of
people except those who prosper most
as society is destroyed by a rising dol
MAJOR MCKINLEY'S LETTER.
If the gold standard is good why did
not the Republican party pledge itself
to help keep a gold standard? But no,
it pledged itself to. get rid of the gold
standard just as soon as other nations
will help us. That is not my language.
That is the language of the Republi
can platform and that is the construc
tion placed upon it by the candidate
who runs upon it in his acceptance.
He says in his letter that the American
people cannot enter upon bimetallism
without the concurrent action of other
nations. Does he say we shall main
tain a gold standard for one year ? No.
For four years? No. But the con
clusion is that we must maintain it
forever if other nations say we must.
A Voice—How about free trade ?
It is not more taxes that the people
want, out more money to pay taxes
with. (Great applause.) If there is
any farmer here who has not taxes
enough. 1 beg him to go tor his Coun
ty Taeasur6r and give enough more to
satisfy his conscience, and not try to
tax all the rest of the public. (Ap
plause.) But I care not how men may
differ upon this subject of taxation. '

I have simply told you what I be
lieve. I speak the sentiments that lie
deep down in my heart. I used to be
indifferent to the money question.
Until six years ago I thought anybody
was a crank who talked about money,
but when I got to study the money
question I found that it overshadowed
all other questions, that it was deeper
and greater and higher than all other
questions which we had to deal with,

Carlisle that the consummation of this

and it is because I believe that the I

misery for the human race than wars !
and pestilences and famines, more j
misery than human mind t-au conceive j

Hon. J. Randolph Tucker.
Disomies the Best Training for the Ameri
can Bar of the Future.
In his paper before the Section of
Legal Education of the American Bar
Association. Hon. J, Randolph Tuck
er, of Virginia, considered what is the
best training for the American Bar o'
the future, what shall the schools tea-h
and how shall they teach, and how long
shall they teach.
He maintained: "First—That tL..°
lawyer as a minister at the alter of jus
tice of the ideal Jus, through the actual
Lex, must be trained to believe his em
ployment is a public duty, primarily to
God and his country; not a mere voca
tion for private wealth or honor; and
that his function* as lawyer or judge
are to be peformed for the promotion
of truth and right, and for the defeat
of falsehood and wrong. This is the
"Second—The lawyer should have
liberal culture. Is there anything in
philosophy or science, in history or
literature, he should not know, in or
der to reach the summit of bis noble
"Third —As law is an historic science,
because every law system has had his
toric development, the student must be
taught i.nd should learn the history of
legal science; from its ancient land
marks, along the pathway of its pro
gress to present conditions. He should
be taught and learn comparative juris
prudence, thus broadening his views of
his own by comparison with others,
"and avoiding the narrowness and error
which comes from a too exclusive con
sideration of his own local polity.
'The interesting relation between
the civil law and the common la-*,
, which modern investigation has shown
Ito be closer than at one time was snp |
' posed to exist, the derivation of much
of the common law from the reservoir
of the Corpus Juris Civilis and the re
flex influence of the common law upon
the code and practice of the civilan in
our own States; make it important, and
esfential, where practicable, that each
system should be distinctively taught
in school, where the other is the main
and primal subject of instruction.
"Fourth—Constitutional law is there
fore a special theme lor" the lawyer of
the United States, for on the integrity
and supremacy of these constitutiont
over men and States, and governments,
State and Federal, depehd the per
petuity of our Union, and the security
of our liberties as men." j
HOW SHALL HE BE TAUOHT.
How shall he be taught ? *
We must teach him to teach himself.
"First—By the best text-books, which j
shall precisely state the law as it has
been settled by statute and adjudica-|
tions. This, I must think, is best in i
the first stages. |
"Second—ln connection with this,!
lectures full and free, showing the na j
tural and moral foundation for the
principles, or the historic origin of!
what is arbitrary, and may seem con
trary to morality or reason.
'iij"l believe in lectures along with text |
books; not on them so much as parallel I
to them, and embodying the view of i
the teacher, and of other authors. The |
student takes in by the spoken words \
of a good teacher what he never derives j
from the written words of the best au
thor. They work well together.
"Third—By the use of cases, leading
and illustrative of the doctrine in hand.
"As a practical question, it may be
left to the teacher to decide whether
the study of cases so admirably enforced
on the original suggestions of the emi
nent Prof. Langdell, of Harvard, should
be cotemporaneous with the study of
text-books, defining and settling gen
eral principles, or be deferred to a quasi
post-graduate course at a later period.
"In this broad and ever-widening
field for juridical duty in this country,
so unique in its political organism, and
so closely related to the worlds destiny,
the teacher must inspire the student
with a deep sense of his duty for full
preparation for the immense work be
How long shall he study ?
"I concede three years is better than
tw6, and two than one. I admit one
year, two years, is too short a period
for such a course, nay, I would prefer
four, five years to three."
Mr. Tucker closed by saying that
Avhile urging a longer course of study
than one year, his efforts as a professor
of law were to lay a foundation of legal
principles, based on moral truth and
leading cases, such as put the student
in a condition for such self training for
life and insure to him the eminent
ability that will fit him for the most
exalted duties of his great calling. Such
training he said, "had made the great
judges from Marshall to Brewer and
from Sir Edward Coke to Lord Russell.
Big Land Deal at Norfolk.—The
New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk
railway, which recently purchased
twenty-three acres of the Thompson
tract, a water front property situated
on Pinner's Point, has
land deal with the Port Norfolk Land
i Company. The purchase covers thirty
acres, including nearly 1,000 feet of
water front. It is understood that the
price paid was $30,000 and that im
; provements to the property will be
begun within thirty days. It is al-
I most certain that other lines beside
I the New York, Philadelphia and Nor
folk are interested in this deal, the
' opinion being current that the rail
ways terminating there will concen
trate their business on the Portsmouth
side of the river.
Charlottesville, Sept. 2—
dale, the Nelson county man convicted
of killing CooK and sentenced to
fourteen years' imprisonment
in the penitentiary, has been brought
to this city for safe keeping, pending
the decision by the Circuit Court on a
motion for a new trial. It is said there
is much indignation in Nelson over the
failure to punish Barksdale capitally,
and it was feared he might be taken
from jail and lynched.

r Bacon's gunpowder was made
eter, sulphur and charcoal. Salt
i chemically called niter and is a
natural product found bedded in the
earth in different parts of the world,
chiefly in India and China Sulphur,
too, is found iii a natural state in many
volcanic countries, lik . Sicily, while,
as is well known, charcoal is made from
wood or woody substances by he a tint,

airtight vessel, tnus driving off every
thing in thorn hut carbon.
Saltpeter, sulph-ir and charcoal an>
still the only ingredients of the gun
powder in common use, although a new
gunpowder made of different materials
is undergoing successful experiment. A
mixture of saltpeter and charcoal alone
would form an explosive, and sulphur
is added chiefly to make it plastic or
capable of being pressed into cakes and
shapes. All three ingredients have to be
- purified by the most careful chemical
skill before they are combined. Then
an exact proportion of each has to be
measured out according to the kind of
powder to be made.
For the gunpowder generally used you
would find in every 100 pounds, if you
could separate the ingredients, 75
pounds of saltpeter, 15 pounds of char
coal and 10 pounds of sulphur, but it
would be almost impossible to separate
the ingredients, for they are not merely
mixed together as you might mix pep
per and suit, but they are ground and
rolled and stirred and pressed together
by special machines until they are al
most sufficiently united to form a sin
gle new substance.
This mixing process is called tritu
ration, and the powder is thus made
into the form of big flat cakes, called
press cakes, and then broken up and
screened into grains of special sizes, or
ground to the fine powder used for shot
guns and revolvers. The large grained
powders are still further stirred together
until the grains become highly glazed,
and these are called cannon powders. A
lighted match may be held to a grain of
cannon powder and it will be found al
most impossible to set. it on fire, but
once ignited it flashes off very suddenly
