coal trust. Ho said that four men
meet In Wall street. New York, every
day and fix the price of coal for every
man In this country, and tho honest la?
boring man has to pay the price for It,
no matter what the costs are. He said
It was a datiKcrous state of affairs,
and these heavy burdens had been
placed upon tho people by the Repub?
lican party, which Is the party of
trusts, and yet you, the Republicans,
talk about prosperity. What kind of
prosperity comes to the people who
mine the coal? Go ask the hundreds
who are now thrown out of employ?
ment because, forsooth, they usk for
only honest wages, that their families
may be comtortably supported, and
you will soon learn that the prosper?
ity is only for those who own the mines
and not the poor minors, whose fami?
lies are suffering for tho bare necessi?
ties of living.
Air. Til ton next touched on the Im?
perialist policy of the Republicans, and
said that this same party had sent Its
armies 7,0UI> miles beyond the seas to
hold 'and control 10,000.000 of unwilling
subjects, and ail this expense had to be
borne by tho people. Yes. you have di?
rectly or indirectly to foot the bill. Are
these people citizens.' No, for they are
denied the right of trial by jury, und
standing in this position, they are now
under a more galling yoke of bondage
than they were under Spain. America
needs no standing army to subjugate
an unwilling people. This country has
always been an asylum for tho op?
pressed, but when you use the arm Of
the government to subjugate an un?
willing people, who are not homogen?
eous to our institutions, you subvci i
the very foundation of civil and reli?
gious freedom, and thus destroy the
Constitution of the United States,
which is the very charter of American
freedom. And this, follow Democrats,
Is the policy of tho Republican pluto?
Air. Tllton urged his hearers to stand
by the Democratic party in the present
contest, which Is the party of the peo?
ple and for the people of America.
Mr. Tilton's remarks wore received
with great applause and music by the
Lambert's Point Brass Rand.
MR. BIBB'S ADDRESS.
Air. W. L. Bibb followed Mr. Tllton
in an able and exhaustive speech on
the issues involved in the present cam?
paign. He warned bis audience of the
dangers which threaten and menace
the country tinder Republican rule. He
said tho trusts In this country were the
main prop and support of tho McKinley
parly. He said a few groat magnates
own more than one-half of the "wealth
of this country, and these men control
tho trusts that oppress the masses, and
every one of them, with barely an ex?
ception, belong to the Republican
party. He said during the past year
that great trust, tho Standard Oil Com
puny, gave to onb man a prolit of $40.
ooo.ooo. Tho Constitution teaches that
all men are political equals, and what
we want Is a government for the groat
masses nnd not for tho few, and the
mission of the Democratic party to?
day is to preserve In tact II! ^'y of
conscience, freedom of spe<>ui and
equal rights in the government of the
affairs of this country. The success of
the Democratic party now menus the
perpetuation of civil and religious lib?
erty and a government by the people
and for the people, and not for the few
to the disadvantage of the toiling
Ill .losing, Mr. Bibb paid a glowing
tribute to Hon. William Jennings
Bryan, the modern apostle of human
rights, and predicted his election on tho
f.th of November. Mr. Bibb's address
was received with rounds of applause.
MR. P. J. MORRIS.
Air. P. J. Morris was the next
speaker. His remarks were applied to
Hi" ousts and the expansion policy of
the Republican party, and the dangers
which threaten the country under its
HON. R. C. MARSHALL.
Hon. R. C. Marshall closed the dis?
cussion of tho evening in a ringing ad?
dress replete with sound arguments,
logic and eloquence. Ho dealt telling
blows on the Republican party and
showed thnt It was the enemy and not
tho friend of the people. Ho referred
to the groat trusts now in ex?
istence, and especially the Stand?
ard OH Company, with a capi?
tal of $100.000.000. had In six months de?
clared a dividend of jiis.ooo.ooo, or STt'..
000.000 per year, and practically no one
else is allowed to engage In this busi?
ness but the few who control It. He
said (he Sugar Trust is not so large,
but the proportion of prolit Is almost
Captain Marshall touched also on the
Imperialistic question, and said that
the 10,1.,<.f I.pie beyond tho great
Eastern Sea had been conquered by
armed force by the United States Gov?
ernment, nnd that those 10,000,000 of
people were without representation. He
said that this same Republican partv
that fought to free s.ooo,000 slaves in the
South was now lighting to make 10.000.
000 slaves of a people thousands of
miles beyond the seas, and these worn
unwilling subjects, and this all under
the plea of expansion. Captain Mar
I shall predicted the election of Bryan
in the coming contest.
The meeting came to an end with
I three rousing ( iu ers for Bryan, Steven

NORFOLK WILL NOT SUFFER.
THE RAILROAD COMBINATION
FOR EXFORT BUSINESS.
Under the above heading the Rich?
mond Dispatch of Sunday publishes the
Roanokc, Va., Oct. 13.?Much has been
said In the papers of the State In the
Inst few days with regard to an agree?
ment between several large railways,
of which the Norfolk and "Western Ib
one, to abandon Norfolk as a shipping
point, and to combine all export busi?
ness at Newport News. A representa?
tive of the press called on Thomas S.
Davant, general freight agent of the
Norfolk and Western, on yesterday,
and asked him for an ofllelal state?
ment. Mr. Davant dictated the follow?
ing, which he signed:
" 'The facts are that the Norfolk and
Western, Southern and Chesapeake and
Ohio Railway Companies have entered
into an agreement to build up the ex?
port traflic through Ilnmpton Roads.
Under this agreement there will be di?
rect sailings to London, Liverpool.
Hamburg and Rotterdam from both
Norfolk and Newport News. To Ant?
werp. Glasgow. Amsterdam Belfast
and Dublin the sailings will be from
Newport News direct, and the Norfolk
and Western and Southern Railways
will deliver their freight for these
points at Newport News. There has
been no service from Norfolk to these
ports. Experience has shown that there
Is not sulllcient traflic to maintain in?
dependent Bteamshin service from Nor?
folk to all the ports named, und the
plan referred to was decided upon as
the surest way of securing permanent
steamship lines from the ports of
"From the above ofllelal statement it
will be' seen that the agreement means
an Interchange of shipping between
Newport News and Norfolk. The Chcs
apenke and Ohio will transfer freltrht
to Norfolk for such steamers as do not
touch at Newport News. Tho balance
Will, if anything, be In favor of Nor?
folk. In all. there will be a fleet or
twelve steamers plying between Hamp?
ton Roads and the ports above named.
The agreement between the railroads
is merely to establish a sure means of
shipment, a thin" they have not always
enjoyed, owing to the Independence of
the ship owners."
Statomont From Nlr. Culp.
Mr. .T. M. Culp, traffic manager of tho
Southern Railway Company, being
asked by a representative of thin paper
for a statement regarding reports to
effect that the Southern railway hud
entered Into arrangements with other
lines by which export freights for the
South and West via Norfolk would be
transferred to Newport News and theie
be loaded on board ship, said:
"Under a recent arrangement entered
Into between the Southern railway,
Chesapeake and Ohio and Norfolk and
Western railroads, it was agreed that
these three through lines should deliver
freight at both Norfolk .and Newport
News for export to London, Liverpool,
Hamburg and Rotterdam, the service
direct from Norfolk. Tho freights for
these points, in connection with South?
ern railway and Norfolk and Western,
will be Increased Instead of reduced
under the arrangement referred to.
"It Is designed that steamers sailing
direct from Norfolk shall take freight
not only from the Southern railway and
Norfolk and Western, hut also from the
Chesapeake and Ohio, Seaboard Air
Line and Atlantic Coast Line likewise.
Ships sailing from Newport News will
take freight from that point from the
various roads named. There has been
and is now no direct steamship service
fiom Norfolk for Antwerp, Glasgow,
Amsterdam, Belfast and Dublin, but
under the arrangement proposed the
roads leading into Norfolk would be In
position to send their freights for these
ports through Norfolk, thereby sending
freights via Norfolk, which, except
under this arrangement, would have to
be sent over lines not operating
through the port of Norfolk.
"This arrangement. Instead of operat?
ing against the port of Norfolk. Is cal?
culated tu improve the export traffic
through Norfolk, in that under It the
number of ships sailing from Norfolk
will he Increased, and freight may be
shipped via Norfolk, which, in the ab?
sence of this arrangement, might be
compelled to seek other routes not
operating via Norfolk."
It is rumored that various ocean
steamship lines entering this port will
unite in an effort to secure a large por?
tion of the freights that the recent
agreement between the Chesapeake and
Ohio, Norfolk and Western and
Southern Railways, and the United
States Shipping Company, will divert to
this latter-ocean line. It is suggested
that if no other means will accomplish
the i('.-.till dcslied 11 if steamship cinn
pnnies that will suffer by the arrange?
ment may send agents to sollolt
freights through the South and West
in the territory where the railroads
reaching Norfolk get their freights.
The railway lines named would then
be compelled, under the inter-State
commerce law. to lay these freights
down as cheaply at the Virginia ports
as they do for the United States Ship?
B- M A. Electric Lights Out.
The Board of Trade and Business
Men's Association's rooms were In
darkness Sunday night, caused by the
burning out of the main wire in the
building about S o'clock Sunday morn?
ing. However, there was gas in the
rooms, and this wns substituted Sun?
day evening for tho electric lights.
When the electric wire burned out Sun?
day morning the wall paper In the
main hallway caught on fire, hut the
blaze was discovered by one of the col?
ored porters, who extinguished the
flames In a moment, of time by the use
of a basin of water.
Bitten by a Mad Dog
Two children of Harry Brown, for?
merly of Norfolk, but now residing on
the Nlmmo farm, in Princess Anne
county, and a third child were bitten
by a rabid dog in Princess Anne Sun?
day. One of the children of. <r. Drown
was bitten through the Jaw and the
other on the leg. The dog attacked
and hit several head of cattle before he
could be killed.

Norfolk. Oct. 15. 1900.
Hon. J. M. Keeling, Chairman Special
Dear Sir?In considering the water
question for tho city. I desire to ask
your consideration of three proposi?
tions, and would be glad to have a
hearing before your committee at such
time as might be convenient.
1st. I will make an offer of purchase
of the city water works at a very goud
Und. I will sell the Norfolk County
\\ ater Company plant, which would he
the means of the city obtaining an ad?
ditional water supply, together with n
now water main and pumping station.
3rd. I will sell the city from one to
two million gallons of water per day,
delivering the same through our pipe
line, and thereby relieving the city lino
of that much pressure: or I will supply
a section of the city and collect the
same rates as now prescribed by the
This proposition would give the citi?
zens water at the same rates as now
prevail, and save the city Interest on
what it would cost the city to Increase
Its plant?say $2?0,000 at I per cent,
would be $10.000 annual saving. In re?
lieving the city's pipe line of from Ohe
to two million gallons would enable the
present (city's) plant to give better
pressure than it does now.
I would be very glad of an oppor?
tunity of discussing the matter In de?
tail with your committee.
