AT KIRN HALL,?ADDRESSES BY
MESSRS. PETERSON AND
The meeting held under the auspices
of the new Democratic Club of Bram
blelon Ward was an enthusiastic one
and thoroughly in sympathy with the
speakers. The meeting was presided
over by the president, Mr. Robert YV.
Weaver, who introduced as the first
speaker Mr. Marshall R. Peterson, one
? ?I Norfolk's prominent attorneys. Mr.
Peterson after expressions of pleasure
at being afforded an opportunity to ad?
dress the Democrats of Brambletoit
Ward, entered Into it full discussion of
the issues involved in the present cam?
paign. In the outset he referred to the
fact that many people in these days do
not nttach the importance to politics
that it deserves, and after referring to
tin physical condition and moral influ?
ence of America, the majority of whose
seventy-five millions of people wore of
the Anglo-Saxon race, he discussed the
question i>f ??Imperialism" and the dan?
gers which threaten the government
through such a policy, declaring it to
be the one man power subverting nil
Hie rights of the people and placing
them In the hands of the head of the
government. He said it" the policy now
being pursued by the present Adminis?
tration is allowed to be continued it I
Would result in an utter overthrow of'
the liberties of the people. Mr. Peter?
son paid a magnificent tribute to the!
lion. William Jennings Bryan, the na?
tional standard-bearer of the Demo?
cratic party, declai m"- that lie was the
great CK I living apostle of human rights, I
and that his elevation to the Presidency
would be the downing of a brighter and
better era for America .
.Mr. .1. Randolph Micks, who has done,
much service for the cause of Democ?
racy in the present campaign, was the
next speaker. He discussed In a force?
ful manner the dangers which threaten
this country through the trusts and
paid that 4015 trusts had been establish-j
e l innL i- l he reign of the McKinley Ad?
ministration, Which was more than bad
been established since the inauguration
of Washington to the Presidency down
to tin- beginning of the present Admin?
istration, lie fully explained the na?
ture of trusts and showed their hurtful
effects upon the masses. His remarks
were received with hearty applause.
The chairman announced that an?
other nie,-ting will be held next Tues?
day night at the same place, and thnt
he-hoped to have the Hon. A. J. Monta?
gue pres. nt to make an address. The
meeting then adjourned.

CHARLES FROHMAN'S COME?
Charles Frbhmnn's Comedians will
present n piquant farce from the
French entitled "Self and Lady." at
the Academy of Music on Monday
evening. October 22. There Is an es?
pecial significance in the name of this
organization. Charles Frohman'S po?
sition is probably the most conspicu?
ous in the theatrical world, and there?
fore it will be noted that this company
is the only one which is prollxnil by
Iiis full name. When a manager of
Mr. Frohman's position stamps any- |
thing with his name It must be con- ?
sidered very much in the nature of
what, for want of a better term, might .
be called a "pet." Indeed, in Now
York circles, this organization is eon
sidered, the very choices! In the Frtih
man oiitlit. The manager for many
years has been culling the very cream :
of his forces for the purpose, of ex?
ploiting a class of plays that it takes I
the highest order Of comedy and far- j
deal talent to interpret. The result is
that the company to be seen here will
be found to have no equal outside of
the Coinedie Francais. The play has
been enthusiastically commended in
the best sense of that much-abused ad?
jective. Seats on sale Friday. Prices,
25c. to SI.50.

He started from Chicago three years

France, and other notables of the old I
country, and returned home with some i
money left, and did not cheat or de?
fraud a firm, corporation or Individ?

ALSO PRESENTATION OF BIBLES
TO THE,PUBLIC SCHOOLS BY
JR. O. V. A. M.
Among the principles' peculiar to the
Jr. O. U. A. M. arc two that commend
themselves to every American citizen,
viz.: that the American Mag should ily
over every public school, so that a ven?
eration for our national emblem should
be inculcated in the mind of every
scholar; and, second, that the Holy Bi?
ble should be read in the nubile
schools, so that proper respect should
be paid to God s Word and religion in
general in a non-sectarian spirit.
In the furtherance of these princi?
ples, and with a desire that the order
in Norfolk should be abreast of the
times und carry out the above com?
mendable purposes, the members of
the "ider In Norfolk have arranged,
by and with the concurrence of the
School Board of this city, to present to
the public schools of Norfolk on next

ture of the clay, and will take place
about 2 o'clock. This entire service,
which appeals to all that is patriotic
in the minds of all true Americans,
will lie an occasion worthy of the com?
mendation and support of the entire
