What the New York Democrat Said
of William J. Bryan.
The feature of the nutional. Demo
cratic convention, after the greatou.t
burst of ipplause following the first
presentation of Bryan's name-, was the
scene which occorred when David. 13.
Hill seconded the 'nomination and
promised the electoral vdtes of Ne*
York to the ticket. The delegates had
been calling for Hill for two days, and
at his tirst appearance before tile cov
vention they broke out with thunders
When the cheers and cries of "11111-,
* I !" had concluded and the vast
audience was seated, he began to speak
slowly, but. cleai ly, and the attention
glyen him was remarkable. The vast
hall was almost silent.. H is'laudation
of Bryan was received with applause
and cheers, but when hei said Bryan
" will have the support of a united
party " the convention went wild and
the band had to.play ." America " to
still the tumilt. " His integrity has
never beet (uestiondd,'' asserted Mr.
Hill, and the 'audidnce'ylid'd " that's
so." His explanatlon of his position on
the platform and his acqtilesVncc with
the will of the majori'y called for
heartier applause -than had been evi
dent before and the good ollices of thce
band were again necessary to got .a.
tention for him.
" This nomination will meet the ap
proval of the East," he said,'and on
thused his auditors. In closing he
" New York expects to join with you
with her thirty-six electoral votes,"
and then, as he stepped down from the
platform the convention became a bed
" Uill for vice president !" was one
of the cries raised, and delegates all
over the hall were on their feet except
the five rows of Tammany men. Ex
- Senator Edward .Murphy, as 1il
passed to his seat, grasped his hand
and shook it heartily. Then Mr. Shea,
of Brooklyn, did the same and othets
in the row, but Mr. Croker sat immo
bile and Mr. Hill passed him vilthout
The ap~plause for Senator 11111 con
tinued for some minutes.
Here is what he saId :
" Mr. P'resident and Gentlemen of
the Convention-In behalf of the iDem
ocratic masses of the State of New
York, for whom I assume to speak on
this occasion, I second the nomination
which has been made from the State of
Nebraska. (Applause and cheering.)
William J. Bryan does not belong to
Nebraska alone ; he belongs to The
North and the South, to the East, and
to the W est-he belongs to the country
at large. It is a nomination already
made in the hearts and alfections of
the American people. locom the clos
ing of the polls four years agh until
this very hour there never was a poA#
sibility of any other nomination being
made. He is a gentleman that needs
no introduction to thIs and,ience, nor to
the American people. Nebraska is
proud of hIm, but New York Is proud
of him also, for four years he has up
held the banner of Democracy in almost
every State in the unIon, His vok..e
has been heard not only in behalf of
our principles, Lut- in -behalf of the
cause of the colmoD people ;;in behalf
of the workinginen in bebhvlf-.of human

of his party-a united party- -(applause,
eheers and waving of lags, lasting for
three minutes,-the band joIning lanthd

certain portions of oui- financial policy,
but the wisdom of this convention has
determined otherwise and I acquiesce
cheerfully in the decision. (Loud ap
plause and cries of " Hurrah for Hill.
Bryan and Hill.") I am here to say
further that the platform that has been
read is worthy the vote and approval of
every inan-who claims to be a Democrat
in this country. Those who do not ad
mire some portions can speak for others.
If there are some issueR which they do
not desire to present as strong as some
others, they can at. least talk about
something in this platform that is
.worthy:- their approval. At least, In
some portions of this country the para

(Great applause.) That will mean

I am here to say simply in conclusion
that New York expects to join with

A DIi'.PiONS TO UIlt NA v .-The es
cape of the noble Oregon from the
clash and peril of the rocks has caused
great rejoicing throughout the coun
try, says the Atlanta Journal. We are
building larger and mightier warships,
but the Oregon will always hold special
place In th'e. affection and pride of the
peolie. She was distinctly the highest
achievement of our naval construction
up to the time of her appearance. She
came upon the scene of action at a
t~ine when she was needed, and be
haved so splendidly that she won a
place in-the popiular regar-d which she
will not soon lose. But we are adding
to our navy some of the strongest ships
that ever sailed the seas, and several
of these are being constructe.d at tihe
Union Iron Works, where the Oregon
was built. At those shipyards the
Wyoming will be0 launchedl in August,
the Ohio- the latter part of August,
andT the torpedo-boat destroyer, Preblo,
the last of July.
Mr. Irving M. Scott, president of the
Union fron Works, did not. get the LRe
publican nomination for vice president
for which his friends urged him, but,
he has scored a greater triumph by
cons'tructing shil's which will add to
the strength and glory of our navy.

Moester Smit, vot did you say hoes
name vas ?"
That is faith-Domiocratic faliL. I
am just that way about Bryan, only I
know his name. "Clarum ot venerabile
nom1en." Was there over a grander,
purer statesman on the American con
tinent. Was there over a partisan as
pirant for the presiconcy who stood so
far above all rivals that no one presum
ed to question his right to the nomxina
tion and this notwithstanding hil do
feat in the last raco ? What,-manner of
man Is he that without elfort or politi
Cai Intriguehe has for four years stood
pre-emifnnt the choice of the Democra
cy of every State? Without fear and
without reproach, his will has boon
and still is the will of the party. Sin
cerity earnestness and purity of char
actor in private and p-lblic life have
onthroned i im in the hearts of the
people and my faith is like Ominberg's.
" 1e vill beat MCKinley out of his
pooLs." As to his running mate, Sena
tor Tillman is right. It docson't make
any difference so ho is a Democrat and
a gentleman. Bryan doosent need i
helper. In horse talk, a running ani e
is a teaser, ao exciter, a stlinulator pitt
on the track to make the racet go fas
ter if possible. Bryan will get as many
votes In .Now York without lill as with
him. Hll and Croker quarreled and
each told the trath on the other. They
are exqI isite politicians. Bryan is a
statesman. There aro thousands of us
who believO that all those wars
have been preci pitated for party pur
poses, and the blool of our boys is
crying from the ground. Oor Southern
People have lost faith in the ability of
the administration to extricate the
country from this mountain of troubil.
We mubst have a change and that soon,
or the mountain will got, bigger. ihis
administration began With war on in its
heart, for heretofore warts have been
popular with the peoplo and kept the
war party in power and gave tihe manu
facturers up North plenty to do. What
a mus3 have they got in Cuba and I'or
to lico and the I'hilippines, annexing
a few more million negroes to givo us
trouble and killing tnemn by the thou
.sands without a cause, and raising a
big rumpus if we lynch One down hero.
And now we are about to be Involved in
this war with China-a war that no
doubt was precipitated bcecause of our
aggressions on tihe Philippines and the
nIaglish 6n the oers. China sees that,
the motto of the Christian nations is :
" Let those take who have tile power,
an I lot those keop who can."
.For fifty years 10ngland has forced
China to buy her opium, grown and
made In india for English imerchants,
until the product now amounts to $50,
000,000 a year. And now China i6
taking her revenge. Pr many years
past Iussia has been discussing the
partition of China just as the partiLion
of Poland was made and discussed for
" 'reedom's shrieked
When Koseiusko fell, and Poland w as
divided out among the vowers."
China has brooded over all this and
the time came for a terrible revenge.
But what about our missionaries ? Mv
wife, who is my running mate, is muchi
exer-cised about, that, for she is a great
missionary woman and attends every
meeting and takes her money aiong. I
told her not long ago that I did entL have
much faith in the conversion of the
Chinese, for there are thousands over
here, right under the sound of the
Sabbath belle, and not, one ever attends
church or has expressed any concern
about his soul. Lsady Churchill repor)It
od to her society that it had spent
?300,000 in twelve months in an effort
to convert the Jews in Poland, and she
was satislied thbey had converted one
p~erhaps two-and she adivisetd an aban
donlment, of tihe work. Th'e religion of
the Chinese is as old as that of the
Jews anti sticks to) themi as close, but
still the i ssionaries tic rep~ort at heal

Mr. N. L. Willot writos as follows to
the Augusta Chronicle :
I was anxious to look into that por
,ion of South Carolina that has in the3
past soveral years gone into tobacco
growing and has thereby proipered sio
greatly. I was glad thorefore to stop
a day at Darlington, S. C., with iy
friends, Mr. and Mrs. U. W. lowitt,
who own ono of the finest homes iI this
thriving town of -1.500 souls. L)arling
ton solt, nlow 5,000,OU poundis tobacco
loaf, Timmonisvillo over ,0o0,ooo
pounds and Plorenco equally as inuch
-those throo towns being all in the
same county. This loaf solls for from
6 to 7c. a pound to 28 and :0. This
difforenco in price obtaining princi
vally from ditforonces in soil and cur
ing of loaf. Tihe proportion is this :
Ten (10) acres in tobacco Is the equi
valeunt, of 100 acres in cotton--roturn
Ing say $:0 an acre and the tobacco $50
The tobacco industry has brought a
a largo number of tobacco raisers into
this county ; and land that live years
ago was of only nominal value today
brings ready sale at greatly enhanced
valuos. Mr. Howitt told ino of one
man who, for example, had been Co,
ton farming for sixteon years and was
bankrupt who in four years had under
tobacco raising now owned thbe phlac
having paid out nearly $7i,000. These
people have found, too, that the Lst
tobacco lands aro the light, worn-out,
The season for tobacco growth Is
mu cich less than cotton. Tobacco plant
ed, say in April, is aheady .comiiing to
market,. .Illy and August, In place of
being dead months, are live buisiness
months In Darlington. From Juily to
Dlecember are tobacco market months.
The care of the tobacco plant is a mat
tr of 67 to 7i days. Now compare this
1ime with the six or seven montbs
ni erded for cotton I
To grow tobacco at a prolit r qtilroc
more brains than to grow cotton. It
requires, too, experience. It requires,
too, a certain outlit, that costs Home
money to the grower. Then enough
must be grown in a county to warrant
the putting up of warehouses--costing
each about $5,000-in the nearby LOWn.
The drying houses to be put up on the
plantation are of logs and Imlud. The
tLown warhouio is i a woodon long one
story alfair with big windows in the
The acreage of tolbcco is so small
14) to 100 of cotton- - that the cotton
acreage of I county need not he largely
decreased because of tobacco growing.
Tobacco might he largely the surplus
crop. The railroads running out of
l)arlington have about as much cotton
a's over and yet now added to this have
5000,000 pounds of tobacco leaf. I be
levo It wol d he a good idea for the va
rious railroads out of A igusta to look
into th is tobacco busine!s. The opening
of this new culture in a now county
iluist, curio, I fool, largely through the
railroads. 'rimary soil experiments
must, be madO, a few tobacco culturist s
Im ported, farmors' cooieration se,-u rod
etc. The railroads can do this ; and if
the experiment sicceed they will be
repaid 100 fold. The Atlantic Coast
lne a few years ago abandonc d the
use of wood on its engines between
Wilmington and Wilson, N. C., and
substituted coal. To kop these poor
piney woods choppers from starvation
-aimost-the .railroads looked i p)
strawberry culture'for them. The road
inaugurated the business successfully.
The poor wood sellers aire today far
better off than ever aid tibe road haul
ed thi past season 900 cars of straw
berries (a new splecies of freight to
themi) out, of thbe terri tory.
T1he aidvent of tobacco~i in and abouilt

mliht say, almost out of p~over't3y inte
s ilunce. All lines of businuess are
gooid. A fter looking oiver the towvin
