I am iu favor of any and all move?

Every body will admit that this
road will benefit ouly a unall number
of the people of tho county. Tho
citizens of Clenr Fork, Graham and
Bland county, are the people to bo
most benefited, aud wo submit that
thoy ought to build this road. Tho
Clear Fork District is entitled tc its
share of tho road tax, but is it fair
to tax all the people to build tho road
there for tho bent-tit of only a vei v
few? Tho merchants of Graham, and
the people of Bland county could
well nfford to build this road, and if
it can bo built for tho small sum of
$3,500, the cost would bo very small
when apportioned among them. In?
stead of feeing lawyers,and trying to

matter, let tho Graham, Clear Fork
and Blond people go ahead nnd build
the road. They might hnvo had it

so si long was the sentiment for

wrought and Mr. Wanamakcr's
speech will iiodoubl place him upon

in question was a surprise to the
speaker's Itcpublican friends. lie
commented rather sevrely on the
failure of President MeKinloy to
restore the prosperity hchnd prom
ised before the election, and then
futher astonished bis Uopublican
associates by declaring that the
present low stale of the politcnl
condition of the country must even

new party which will refuse to be.

Mr. Waiiamakcr is right, lie
sacs the handwriting on the wall,
which declares that no good can
come from the single gold standard.

people when lie stands for a cam;

Bryan's politics consist, not of origi

seem to think Mr. Bailey does, nor
can any man truthfully charge that
