The Wallace circus is decidedly more
satisfying in an amusement sense than the
Syndicate show which recently visited this
city, and is also much more extensive. A
completely equipped menagerie, new

show carries oOU horses, and has a force
of 800 people. The latter, with the ex?
ception ol the performers practically live
on the grounds, sleeping tents, dining
tents, and the best of accommodations
being provided. The main tent, with a
seating capacity of nearly 12,000, is one
of the largest tents ever brought here fo
a circus. The usual parade without which
any circu? is incomplete, occurred at noon
to-day, aud was witnessed by thousands
on the crowd-lined sidewalks. The parade
was much more interesting than is usually
offered by rircus managers, and an

MUST REPEL INDUSTRIAL ENTERPRISE
On Such a Declaration National Dem?
ocracy Will Never Gain Control.
The platform is a political anachronism
which relates more to nntional issues of
180(1 than to the vital questions of Virginia
State policy in 1S'.>7 and the four succeed
j ing years. It preaches a gospel of dis
I content and despair which is in onoma
I lous contrast with the inspiring and hope
[ fill signs of reviving prosperity all about us.
j It deals with no great question of industrial
! growth and progress in the State at a time
when other States are alert
to the advancement of thes.> interests,
subordinating partisan and sectional con?
siderations to them. It is a platform which
must repel from Virginia Immigration and
industrial enterprise,and upon which the
national Democracy will never regain con?
trol of the federal government. The Repub?
licans need ask no belter guarantee of their
continuence in power than the. adoption of
such a platform by the national Democracy
three years heuce. In short, an a declar?
ation of party principles,it is simply fatuous
and suicidal and wholly inapposite.?Pe?

In 1862, when I served my country as a
private in Company A, 107th Pennsylva- tariff
nia Volunteers, I contracted chronic diar?
rhoea. It has given me a great deal of
trouble ever since. I have tried a doz>;n
different medicines and several prominent
doctors without any pel manent relief. Not
long ago a friend sent me a sample bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar?
rhoea Remedy, and after that I bought and
took a 50-cent bottle; and now I can say
that I am entirely cured. I cannot be
thankful enough to you for this great rem- : is pitiful to
edy, and recommend it to all suffering vet?
erans. If in doubt wiite me. Yours

They say Providence has sent prosperity
and they don't seem to want it that way.
The so-called Democracy wishes to force
the fight again on a debased currency, low
and socialistic doctrines. Why
should the Republicans of Virginia fail to
confront them at every point?
A great many men in Virginia will sup
port the Roanoke ticket and platform
under constraint. They are heartily op
posed to the popocratic principles, but for
business reasons are afraid to make their

revolution in Spain will be of great assis?
tance to them, and it is to be hoped that
they will soon be able to throw of the

Tyler, Echols and Montague make a
J ticket that will sweep the State by one of
the late Senator Barbour's majorities.?

ties are obtained in the same way, by
manipulation of the ballots.
It looks very much like Senator Stewart
of Nevada is preparing to leave the ranks.
He has been one of the most intense sup?

cent interview he gave utterance to the
"There is no room for pessimism ic. ? this
country No one can be a'bear' in the |
face of the wheat famine in Argentina,
Russia, Hungary, and India. In view of I
this condition abroad, I should not be sur?
prised to see silver sell as low ae 25 cents I
and wheat as high as $1. There is nothing |
in talking silver at the present time and my
advice to my friends in the West is to fall
into line with the forces of prosperity and
De sent to the iazewell j progress, and receive their due share of the

issues. We must turn to face new issues
and new conditions."
Boise, Coxey, Debs and Stewart have |
deserted the Populists. Who next ?
