Tlic Lynchbnrg Virginian after
thanking tho NEWS fur its "timely
and sensible views*' as expressed
in its article of last week, on this
i Lynchbnrg ought to coniinnnd
. the bulk of the trade of thai great
section of tho Stute. Wliyiiotl In
i more than half of the articles which
make up a merchant's slock she can
undersell the Northern cities. Her
merchants buy as cheaply, and their
expenses arc less. They have the
enterprise, (he vim, the push, and
are determined not to be undersold.
All that is necessary is for them to
have a trial.
We say to Southwestern mer?
chants who have, been in (he habit
of going to Baltimore and ether
places outside of the State, give
Lynchbnrg a chance; Iry her once,
and we uro not afraid that you will
not keep it lip. You of the South?
west aru interested In keeping in
the State all the business possible
The more you build up a city tho
more you will decrease your own
taxes. Why incur the expense ol
going North when you can be sup
plied as well,if not to.better advan?
tage near at home, thus saving in
personal expenses and freight bills I
Home manufactures and home
trade will make the. stale prosper?
ous and happy. (ion! leinen of the
Southwest,remember this when you
start on! to buy your goods, and
give Lynchburg a trial.''
The Lynch burg News comment?
ing on the same article says :
"The NEWS is entirely eonoct in
its statement, with reference to the
trade of this city. Especially is the
wholesale trade on a boom. We
were told yesterday of one bill be?
ing sohl by n wholesale grocery
linn on Alain street to a party on
tho line of the Clinch Valley rail
road to the extent of $:!,000. While
some of our retailers are disposed
to complain of a curtailment id' I heir
trade, brought about to a great ex
l?:'c io, the
it is peciYh?iJy a subject
61 congratulation that our whole
Stile establishments are in the en?
joyment of a ha: vest, 'there can
be no question about the fact
that they can sell goods equally as
cheap as houses farther North. The
increase in I heir business is an at
testation of I he fact,"
The Lynchbnrg Advance also
quotes the article in support, of the
position taken by the NEWS.
The Lynchbnrg merchants too
have taken in the situation, as wit
ness their numerous advertisements
The NEWS has been fully assured
by them that they arc determined
to merit and retain the business ol

triotism of the
WnnEi-iNO, \V. Va., August 27,?
The great parade of the Grand Army
of the Republic Posts, which wound
up the annual meeting of the Army
of West Virginia, in progress here |
during the past four days, cunic un?
pleasantly near ending in a row j-es
terday. Editor Tanoy, of the Regis
ter, threw across Market street a|
12x24 foot banner bearing a mam
moth portrait of President Cleve
land, above and below the picture
being the inscription : ''God bices
our President, Commander in-Chief
of our nainy and navy." The np
pearance of the banner created some
feeling among the G. A. R. men when |
it was placed in position. The feel
ing wns deepened by an article in I
Friday morning's Pittsbnrg Dispatch
which referred to the firc-enting qual
"ities of Editor Tancy nud Iiis will?
ingness to see his entire otllec wreck?
ed beforo lib would remove the ban?
ner. The article further said that t\}
few of the more hot-headed members
of the G. A. R. had expressed a de?
termination of tearing the banner
down; or in the event of its remain?
ing up, they would refuse to march
This article created great excite?
ment among the 01 A. R. of Pitts
burg, and when about 2,000 veterans
boarded the ears hi that eity, there
licly show their feeling, ami, arriv?
ing in Wheeling, it was decided thai
the big banner should be dodged.
When the head of the first division,
composed of Pennsylvania veterans,
reached the Register office, Post No.
41, which led the advance, went
squarely under the (lag. The suc?
ceeding posts, however, crowded into
the gutter to avoid passing under the
banner, and either trailed their colors
or dropped them. As organization
after organization went by in this
manner the excitement In the great
trong of spectators became intense.
The excitement reached its height
when Encampment No. 1 of the
Union Veteran Legion of Pittsburg
came up. The Legion, 250 strong,
went down the centre of the. street,
and, as they passed the Cleveland
bannor with upright flngstaffs, many
of the members took off their hats
In a moment pandemonium was lot
During the remainder of the day
the excitement was very great, and
threats to tear down the banner were
heard on every hand.
At a great meeting of 20,000 peo?
ple, which immediately followed tho
parade, an attempt was mado to
smooth over the. innttcr. Governor
Foraker, of Ohio, said be honored
the sentiment expressed on the ban?
ner, and hoped that all would concur
Ex President Hayes said that lie
Lhonght the action of the Grand
Army of the Republic men was im
proper. He respected the President,
and had lifted his hat when the car?
riage he Was in passed beneath the
The ball was started by Gov. Wil?
son pronouncing rather a fulsome
eulogy upon the South and talking
of the tendency of the North to con
stonily keep alive the sentiment
against the Stales lately in rebellion.
As soon as he could. General "Bill"
Gibson took occasion to reply to
Governor Wilson. Addressing that
gentleman, lie advised him to "Go
homo and teach 3'our children that
rebellion in 11113- form is entirely
wrong, and that the soldier who put
it down is entirely right. Treason is
now and always must be made infa
mous." Govs. Beaver, Forukcr, ex
Gov. Plcrpolnt, Geu. Gotland others
spoke,and t he crowd became wrought
up to the highest pitch of excitement.
When these and others had spoken,
Gov. Wilson again came forth and
the fun began in earnest Ho said :
?"?Tt 'ii> 'tvYrJti a feeling of gratitude that
the South realizes that it is back in
the Union lo da}-, and it docs not
make that feeling any stronger to be
continually talking 'rebels' and 're?
bellion.' Do you expect to fetd this
country on a'dish of rebellion for the
next 100 years to come ? The true
American soldier did not go to the
war for the purpose of coming back
here and talking about rebels. Let
mo tell the Governor who has told
mc what he did in the war that it is
not such a grand thing to be contin?
ually talking about your own cx
ploits. 1 consider myself as much a
patriot as any man here this evening,
whether he has two legs, one leg, or
no legs." [Loud applause.]
The conduct of the crowd at this
point was simply disgraceful. Fora
ker swaggered arouud, said that he
would answer anything that was
staled, and the confusion was quiet?
ed. After some moments the. crowd
yelled itself down and Gov. Wilson
was allowed to proceed. He said :
"You had better bear in mind
that the soldiers who went into the
war were not all Republicans. Han?
cock nnd scores of other ofllccrs and
thousands and ten thousands of the
rank and file were good Democrats,
and as good pntriots as any here this
evening. I did not conic here, lo talk
politics, but I am not going to see
the record of the Democratic soldier,
swallowed up in the vortex of parlJ
sun hatred without "Mting]B&~iNj
in protest. Eveiy AnierieJeH M
should have his pnliticdflj
study the questions of tWB
pass upon them by the tePtS^T^BB
son, I believe in the reason of Cw
people nnd in their reason alone, linrf
not in partisan prejudice or sectional
hatred. Our constitution was found
pel in reason, and was made for the
benefit of no section. Whatever may
havo been a man's actions twenty
years ago, can it be for any good to
be constantly telling him he was
wrong nnd that he must get down in
dust and beg pardon on his knees ?
I was a boy when the war broke out
and was not old enough to enter the
service, but I am as good a Union
man ns any one."
Gov. Wilson was frequently inter?
rupted by the crowd who seemed de?
termined to hold him down. Oat
culls, cries, hisses, and even threats
were used in order to prevent him
from defending himself against the
assertions of speakers who had com
mcnted on his speech. '
nnguo in roply, dealing ?Alt ids usual
campaign clap trnp about '?securing
the results of the war and guaran?
teeing the rights of suffrage to all."
When General Mnhono compla?
cently alludes to the Democratic
party's ''record of crimes and out?
rages on suffrage in the procurement
of power," he unquestionably must
be referring to tiic time when he ran
tho machine in the interest of the
Democratic party. He was espe?
cially proficient in "crime and out?
rage'' during his incumbency of the
Petersburg district chairmanship, as
anybody who knows anything of his
high-handed performances in the
Fourth Congressional District will
testify. The first and worst reproach
of dishonest methods ever encoun?
tered by the Democratic party of
Virgfnia may justly be ascribed to
i tho malign induence of Mnhono.
Even a battalion of Federal troops,
stationed at Petersburg by order of
Grant, was unequal to tho task of
suppressing Mahoue's fraudulent
