leg-end "one cent." It doesn't require

she Iii now visiting, for since her de?

?has, It Is said, been effected between her
three daughters and their father, former
Governor William Sprague of Rhoda
Island. When, eighteen years, ago, Mr.
and Mn=. iSprnpue were divorced, trie]
latter was given the chn.rge of -their

A large and most enthusiastic gather?
ing of Democrats assembled In Pythian
Castle last night to hear the speech of
the Hon. J. H?ge Tyler. Democratic
candidate for Governor.
At the appointed hour the following
gentlemen walked In, amid a storm of
applause, and took seats on the plat?
form: Hon. J. H?ge Tyler, Democratic
nominee f..r Governor; Congressmen W.
A. Young, Harry Maynnrd, Captain 13
\V. Owens, chairman of the Democratic
party <ot Norfolk county; Frank Port
lock, chairman district committee;
Colonel Dan Turner; Mr. Lindsay, of
Western Brapch, and the Hon. It. A.
McCoy, secretary of the district com?
Mr. Owens called the meeting to order
and Introduced the Hon. W. A. Young
as the first speaker.
Mr. Young began by offering a few
statistics. He gave special reasons why
the white man should hold the rule.
He nald that 60 per cent, of the voting
population were white men and 40 per
cent, were colored, and considering the
fact that the white men pay 97 per
cent, of the taxes and the negroes .1
per cent., he saw no reason why the
white man should not bold the reins
of power. He said further: "The negro
is all right In his plaoe, and 1 respect
him there, yet there are seme who, for
the sake of selfish gnln, will occasional?
ly vr.te him Into office. The negro In
bis time of need always comes to the
white mnn for aid and assistance. He
knows that In him he has a friend.
The State appropriates about JD0.000
Ii0> publli education, and the negro gets
SO per cent, of it. The prisons of the
State cost us $250,000 per year, and this
expenditure Is made necessary to look
after the lawless among the colored
race. The white man who says ithat
the negro does not got what 'he de?
serves Is the man who wishes to use the
negro ho help himself Into olllce. The
population of our towns Is steadily In?
creasing because t'he condition of the
farmer Is such as to force him to the
city to obtain a livelihood.. He then
spoke of the last Congress.
THE DINGLEY FAKE.
If the next Congress is to be like the
lost, said the speaker, then I don't care
to go back. When I went to Con?
gress'I expected to And a big thing, and
I felt a little timid. I was mistaken, I
found It something like a town Council
meeting. We met every Monday morn?
ing, had the Journal read and then ad?
journed. Nothing was ever done ex?
cept to pass 'the great "prosperity"
bill, and 'bow <much prosperity has
come to us? Everybody said that some?
thing must be done to place our curren?
cy upon a more substantial basis. We
thought we met to talk about money,
but tariff proven to be the Issue of tho
day. We found It Impossible to talk
about or to legislate upon anything
Mr. Ypung then spoke In the highest
terms of Major Tyler, who would next
address the audience. He said that he
came to Berkley, net to discuss local
politics, but to say what the duty of
every true Democrat would be on next
Tuesday. He said further: "It Is Impos?
sible for there to be two democratic
tickets In the field. If we are true Dem?
ocrats we must go to one tribunal and
there assert our rights. Wo believe thai
our success In this fight Is dependent
upon nur Cooperation." Here he men?
tioned the name of Mr. Newberne,
which was followed by a storm of ap?
plause and hisses. He said that Mr.
Newberne had been recognized by the
dlstriut executive committee and he
thought Democrats ought to suppor!
Mr. Young then brought his speech to
.-. close, expressing himself in closing as
wishing that the Democrats m'ghit unite
their forces a->d lay aside their petty
differences and go to the polls next
Tuesday determined to stand by their
MAJ. TYDEH'S ADDItET.S.
Mr. Owens next Introduced Maj. J.
H?ge Tyler, the mention of whose name
met with applause and cheers. He
spoke as follows:
"Mr. Chairman and fellow citizens
of the county of Norfolk: I wish I
could command words to express my
appreciation of this kindly greeting
that you *0iow me. 1 have for some
time been anxious to visit and speak lo
you. You have Indeed an enviable rep?
utation for your unbounded hospitali?
ty. The people who live among (he hills
of tl?* West envy you because of your
advantages. You have made old ocean
to clap her hands and rejoice because
her w aves kiss your shores. During the
past fe w weeks T hnvo visited M34hews,
Gloucester and other counties, speaking
twice a day, but to-night I am In He.rk
ley, where I believe will stand In a
few years one of the foremost c'.tleB
of the world.
"I come befo-c you to-night a plain
fnrmer, not with bouquets and fine
words, but with facts and figures that
concern us as representatives of the
true Domocrncy of this grand old Com?
"One of the first things T wish to give
you In tho way of substantial food Is
the ticket of our party which was put
up at Hoanoke. This ticket Is a perfect
tart?tho swell part on top (pointing to
himself). The ticket seems to he Just
what all classes want. The gold men,
i=llver men and all others alike point to
It as a modnl ticket. (Here Mr. Tyler
turned to the renresentalives of the
press, who occupied seats on the plat?
form, asking them not to take his
speech vejbatum &$ he wished to make
it again, and as he had worked hard to
prepare It. he wished to tell It to the
people r it her than have them.read it
from newspapers. Laugnter.) Some
soy that I should speak to you'of the
prosperity of the land. I shall indeed
be glad to recognize prosperity where
ever I may find it. During the past
yi ar I have visited many countries of
Europe to ascertain If p >3?lble, [what the
gold stand ir'd Iihs meant to tho*e coun
[ tries. I failed there to find rt,he pros?
perity we so much desire; no land is
favored of God more than our dear Vir?
ginia; no land is more open to advance?
ment along all 'lines. "What we want is
general prosperity?prosperity that
comcii alike to ill classes.
"Dot us look at the facts 'ana figures
in the case. Only a few years ago four*
fifths of our land responded to the tickle
of the boo end gave to us the rlohes of
the soil, but now the gretater part of
that land In standing ai bowling wilder?
ness. You know nothing'of (he want
and n'ocd of the farmer unless you could
visit his home as I have done. Our op?
ponents wan't us 'to preadh prosperity
simply to Injure our cause. We cannot
consistently preach a tilling that doe-s
not exist. So lor.x as ithl? hand holds
Uhe banner of Democracy, i will not mis?
lead Che people. (AppHause.) If the gold
standard can 'bring us prosperity it will
?be a miracle. We elected' Mr. Clovel-tad
?i'nKl repealed tiie purchasing clause of
the-'Sherman bill, hut have we seen mon?
ey come frcrn Its hiding pl.vce? As to re?
sult we have had1 to borrow money to
keep the Ship of Fitato afloat. We have
seeni no prosperity under the present ad?
ministrated. The'flrst few months aiHter
our present President was elected were
the most disastrous wo have ever known.
They fi.rld. 'Oh. wait until we Inaugurate
our President." Mr. McKinley was in?
augurated and no prosperity came.
They saM then. 'Oh. wall Utr.'tU Con
grcssmestb.' Congrcra-mct, bill nothing
could 'be done except to increase the
tariff. We know fivi'l well that to In?
crease tariff means to (advance prices.
They fiaifl that the passage or the tariff
'bill would, Ft art up new Indust ries (arid

had more strikes titan ever before.

We have direct proof that peddlers of washing
powders say that the stuff they're selling is
"made in the same factory." as Pearline?
and that buying from them will save going to,
or ordering from, the grocery store. Do you
want people "saved" that. You have these
same washing-powders in stock. Possibly y?u
. are giving them out, whenever you can, in
place of Pearline. You are trying to push
them into notice; they are trying to crowd you out. You
think you are "making more money on them." But will it
pay you, in the end ? ws . . .
CJ^firl Peddlers and some unscrupulous proccrs will tell you "this is as good as" I
OtJllvl or " the. tame p.s Pearline." IT'S FALSE?Pearline is never peddled, j
fl find if. your grocer scads you something in place of Pearline, be
