There have been some more or less
amusing stories in connection with
Mr. Bryan's coming to Washington to
make a speech. in the first place
there was no end of trouble in getting
a place for him to speak ; then there
was more trouble about the distribu?

music?the local committee seemed to
fear that some unauthorized band
might get into the baseball park, in
which the speaking took place, and
which, by-the-by, was paid for by two
saloon keepers whose places are oppo?

piece of music that would give Mr.
Bryan the razzle-dazzle right befort

?Those ability as an orator cannot bt
questioned. The speaker went back U
ancient history and proved that all na
tiona had something as a standard o
value. The Assyrians used oxen ai
their standard while the Romans usec
sheep ; these nations were then said ti
be on the oxen and sheep basis. At t
later date, the Romans adopted I rot
and were then on an iron basis. .Mr
Douglass declared that the progressive
ness of man was what had actuatet
him to adopt something more vaiua
ble and less cumbrous as a standard o
value, and the United States has a
good a money basis as the best nation
on the globe, and we are asked to sur
render that and resort to the free am
unlimited coinage of silver, as a me

This was one of the most terri flt
struggles of the late v. ar. The colored
troops saved the Yankee army from
complete route. The colored chrome
is 22 x 28 inches Look at that line of
black boys dressed in blue. They fire
like veterans. Shot, shell and grape
and cannister play about them, but
thev heed it not. The Confederates arv
entrenched. They can be seen in their
gray uniforms firing upon the brave
64th Massachusetts regiment. A gen?
eral is wounded and is led to the rear
by a colored soldier. Horses are shot
down. A colored soldier drops behind
the dead animal, uses him as a breast?
work and fire* seals and again upon
his would-be ti.-i.ivers. .More troon
are hurried to the front. The 8th Col?
ored TJ. S. Infantry is hurrying to sup?
port the broken column.

for $1.00. Advance pitying or new sub?
