They did not draw as politicians, but might as freaks of nature. Mexico is a free silver country, and Turkey is a'single standard gold coun try. If free silver has caused poverty in Mexico, a single gold staneard has sunk Turkey still lower, it has made her the most abominated country in Europe, and the poorest. President Cleveland refused to regis ter and will not vote. Secretary Carlisle refused to register and will not vote. Other members of the cabinet will vote either for McKinley or for the Decoy Ducks. — m 9 ♦ There ought to be a law passed by Congress prohibiting the use of the American flag by any political party as a party emblem. Such uses befoul the nations emblem and might cause the people who hate the party to lose respect for the flag. With only $600,000,000 of gold in the United States, and the national expen ses $450,000,000 annually, what would this country do with a gold standard f If the government owned it all it would scarcely do the busidess of the Treasu ry Department. Where then would we get money to do the billions of dol lars of business of this country outside of that done by the government? » -*_ <. With such sentiments as those re cently expressed by Mr. J. Sterling Morton, Cleveland.; Secretary of Agri culture, about Southern people, Mr. Baylor of Charles Town, W. Va., the old law partner of Hon. Wm. L. Wil son, Postmaster General, might ex claim with more fervancy than he did last week, when he expressed his as tonishment at hearing that Mr. Wilson would bolt the Democratic party and say- "Are many of thy servants dogs that they should a such a thing ?" Is Secretary Herbert "a Dog," that he J and Mr. Wilson should serve in a cabi net with a man who would denounce their people as Mr. Morton has done? Are many of our people "dogs" that they will vote with men who have al ways denounced us as worse than dogs, and who in the name of democracy are today flaunting in our faces the blood iest shirt that was ever waved? Aye are we all dogs ? What Will the t'arner Do J j The plutocrats tell the farmer that he should attend to his own business. That he may perhaps be able to run his farm, but as for running the gov ernment he knows about as much as the ayerage horse. Eveey man to his trade they say. They—the gold bugs have been running the country and they know the lick it is done with and don't want any help from the hayseed ers. A farmers place they tell him is mauling rails, but a financiers is hand ling money. Now the farmer seems displeased with the way it has been handled, he wants a change. But the gold bug has sent him word that if he, the gold bug, catches him, the farmer, monkeying with the affairs of the gov ernment again or undertakes to talk money to him, he, the g. b., will make things hotter than a harvest field the last of June. The insolence of the manner in which the farmer is address ed by the average New York paper, the autocratic railroad magnate, and the national bank officials, ought to teach even so dumb an animal as a farmer, that he is regarded by them exactly in proportion to the amount of money they can make off him. Fur ther than that they care no more about him than for the worm they grind beneath their heels. Next Tues day the farmer can make it a little warm for the gold bug. Will he do it? j All railroad charters hereafter will contain a clause giving them the ex clusive right to name the presidents of the United States. Virginia will be among the first of the States to supply this much needed want. Mr. M. E. Ingalis has shown the necessity for it. 1 m —• The political lines of J. Hampton J Hoge have not fallen in pleasant. places, lie once had an office and tried to get out of the United States with it, but failed. He has had a nom ination and has tried to stay in the United States with it, and has failed. Is the whole of such a valuable life to Could two men naturally equal when turned loose in the world to make their way, be expected to fight an equal battle if one should lose his right arm? Why then is silver denounced as being unable to keep its parity with gold, in its progress through the business world, when a hostile Congress stop ped not only at the severance of a right arm, but actually cut off its head ? —♦—•—♦— A farmer or laborer who votes with the bankers and trusts and millionaires, does so with just as much reason as if he would go out and set fire to his barn or house. He helps people to continue their robbery of him in the ane instance, and thus renders himself poorer, in the other he makes himself poorer in a plain straightforward way. Both lead to to the same end—poverty. * —• • j The millions the plutocrats are spending shows they are not trying to save the country, but themselves. If this were a real war, whether with our own people or a foreign country, every dollar they contributed to campaign expenses would have a promise of the government to return about two for one. Self is one thing, patriotism another. . m * Judge Jas. Keith, president of our Supreme Court, through the Alexan dria Gazette of Saturday, announces his purpose to support Palmer and Buckner. It is believed that Judge Keith is the only member of that body who will support that ticket or any other ticket excspt Bryan and Sewall. It is to be regretted that on this na tional question there should have been a divided court. It is understood that spotters are to be sent about over this State to watch the election officers and detect fraud. This is only to be done in the South and is in the interest of the gold party. We do not know where they are to be enlisted, nor from what source they may come, but when they start for their respectiye places of business they should provide themselves with all necessary paraphernalia, amongst which had better be a coffin. The News in its issue of yesterday morning gives an estimate of the free silver crowd of Monday. The editor of the News chose an unfortunate lo cality for counting democrats. He stood in the republican headquarters, and was assisted by that able calcula tor, Mr. Noon, and the people do say seemed so much afraid he would be seen in such company that he was afraid to put his head out far enough to view more than half the procession, j ] The other part he took Mr. Noon's word for. When Hon. John G. Carlisle was dis turbed in Covington, Ky., last week, whilst speaking, the conduct was de nounced in all sorts of anathemas by the plutocrats. But when the Yale students hissed Bryan, and the Muncie, Indiana, hirelings of Hanna shouted McKinley in his face and tried to break up the meeting and cause bloodfhed, the same mouths which anathematized j the Covington, Ky., proceeding, call the Yale incident and the Muncie, Ind., row, patriotism. ♦ m . Mark Hanna has opened the money floodgates in Illinois this week. He has hired all the howlers and bullies he could to stir up strife and do dirty work. He has rented theatres in which to play McKinley as the hero, and Bryan as the villian, and given every body free tickets. He has poets to write verses, and the organ grinder to grind songs, vocal with praises of "debt payer" William. He has chartered Ki. or rather his friendly allies the ads, have furnished him trains to persons to all republican meet ings, and he has arranged that persons be not carried to democratic meetings. He has declared the day before elec tion day to be "Flag day," and has ordered all the faithful to decorate with flags, and adopted the flag as the emblem of McKinley, and Hannaism. He has also hired spies and spotters to go about in the throngs and see who can be arrested and who intimidated. If such a campaign ,?ins woe unto lib erty and free institutions. \} isdom, What a Blessed Thing is I Wisdom. wise men of the east can tell us hing that is going to happen if 3t Bryan. f inform us that we are to have re year panic, vill never see any more gold, will have no more National Vanderbilts will all go to Europe side there, railroads will be planted in corn, poor man will starve because ney will not buy anything, free coinage of silver will con he currency, he factories will be closed, silver mine owners will somehow ry rich, ill take sixteen dollars to buy eakfast. rchists will blow up the public Bgs witn dynamite, and assas«i --11 persons holding office, teau's spirit will be invoked and ie of that celebrity placed on the the Washington monument, cabinet will be as follows : Tillman, Secretary of State, eld.

STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND VINDICATOR. Plutocracy has made its worst mis- j take. It has began denouncing the I South and flaunting the bloody shirt. This shows desperation, and that they are in their last ditch. There was little to attract the Southern man to Wm. McKinley even when he tried to Boothe their fears about force bills and other dreaded measures. But the only bridge over which they could cross has been swept away by this sanguinary j flood of abuse. A private letter received in Wash-1 ington last Friday from one of the I j twelve thousand employees of Swift 1 and Company's establishment in Chi-1 cago, says that though all of them wear McKinley badges and shout for I McKinley, at least eight thousand of j them will vote for Bryan, and that such will be the case with a like pro portion of the seventy-five thousand men who were recently coerced into marching in the McKinley procession in that c'ty. In the death of ex-Speaker Chas. F. Crisp of- Georgia, the democratic party loses one of its ablest leaders, the cause of silver one of its strongest and brav est advocates, the country one of its most influential and talented citizens, and the State of Georgia especially, sustains a loss which she will deeply and sadly feel. She has had many great men, among whom of recent years have been Alex. H. Stephens.Ben Hill, Colquitt, Grady and a long line of others, forming a galaxy which has been only brightened by this one] of her sons, who "has drawn his cloak about him and lain down to pleasant dreams." . ♦ > Before our paper is again placed in the hands of our readers, this country will have passed through one of the most exciting periods in the nation's Ktory. Either the people will have isen a president, or the corporations will have chosen one for them, time will tell us which. All this week the great commoner Wm. J. Bryan, will be fighting the people's battle, in the very heart and centre of this union. He will fight it as no man has ever fought. He wi.l be confronted with forces no human has ever met. He will look in that length of time upon more human beings and into more faces than the eyes of one man ever beheld in the same length of time. He will meet every where the hired ruffians that Hanna ha? turned loose upon him. Yet he will meet also the sympathetic joyous faces of the multitudes who will be gathered at every point where he is to be seen and heard, to greet, encouraue and cheer him in the splep did fight he has made and is making. If there is a power which helps those who help themselves, then this reward should come to this champion of free- Km, and he should be as he deserves, icted by an overwhelming majority. We hope for the best, and believe he will win the magnificent race he has -» m ■» — Not Afraid of 50-Cent Dollars. E. H. Kleinschmidt, the Helena, Montana, banker, has made public an interesting letter he sent to the New York World last August, which the World, somehow, neglected to publish! Helena, Mont., Aug. 21,1896. To the New York World: Gentlemen—l hereby authorize you to publish that I will make a contract S>r one hundred thousand dollars 5100,000) worth of silver, for which I gree to pay one dollar and ten cents ($1.10) per ounce in United States gold coin, and to be taken as soon as W. J. Bryan, as President of the United States, has signed a coinage bill, which will provide for the free and unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio compared with gold at 16 to 1, and if any of those who are talking about 50-cent dollars desire this contract, and are willing to put up a forfeiture, I am prepared to secure this offer by a forfeiture of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000). I feel confident thai I can arrange simi lar contracts among my circle of busi ness acquaintances for twenty millions ($20,000,000). to be taken one million a month, fur twenty months after the signature of such a bill. Yours truly, R. H. Kleinschmidt. Mr. Kleiuscbmidt is owner of the American National Bank, of Helena, and one of the richest and most re sponsible men in Montana. Suicide of a Hotel Man. Lurat, Va., Oct, 21.—The residents of Shenandoah, in this county, were shocked to hear this morning of the death, by his own hand, of Mr. A. S. Crittenden, a merchant and proprietor of Brown's Hotel, in that place. Mr. Crittenden went to his room about 9 o'clock, locked the door, and shot him self through the right temple with a revolver. He was about dead when assistance reached him. The rash act was doubtless caused by business troubles. Mr. Crittenden was 36 years of age, and leaves a wife, but no chil dren. He came to Shenandoah about one year ago from Rippon, Jefferson county, W. Va. In favor of Watson. Peka, Kan., Oct. 21.—1n the man proceedings in the Supreme instituted by Chairman Breid , of the populist State Central committee, against Secretary of State Edwards, to compel him to insert Wat son's name on the official ballot, the Supreme Court, two thirds of the judges eoucurrinjr, decided in favor of Breidenthal, and ordered Edwards to put Watson's name on the official bal lot. The Middle-of the-Road leaders hoped to divide the opposition. The action of the court settles the ques tion, and eight tickets will be present ed to Kansas to select from. . i<» * Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 21.—8r. Wm. H. Felton, an elector on the populist tick et, has bo'ted and gone over to the republicans. He says that he disagrees with McKinley's financial policy, but I changes because the democrats will not support Tom Watson for Vice I President. Among the citizens of New York who failed to register this year, and conse queutly cannot vote, are Grover Cleve land, ex-Secretary of the Navy Wm. C. Whitney. Richard Oroker, and Corne lius Vandebilt. ♦ # . . Deafness Cannot be Cared by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear.

CHENEY & Co., j jHTSoId by Druggists, 75c. ° GRAIN TRADE AND CROPS. The Cincinnati Price-Current of last Thursday says:— Weather conditions have favored corn gathering operations, and good progress has resulted in this line. The abundance of the new crop, with the stimulus .of the recent advance in prices, has encouraged a liberal move- i ment of this grain. With the progress j of husking operations there is variable-, ness in results as compared with ex- j pected yield, the general average not appearing to indicate any reason for enlarging the'estimates. Wheat seeding operations have been continued to considerable extent, part ly because of previous retardation from moisture, and partly under the more hopeful outlook for this grain. The conditions attending the start of the crop have been unusually favorable. The week has been one of much ac tivity and excitement in the wheat markets, and closes with an advance of s|c for December at Chicago, after losing 44 cents from the extreme point reached' on Monday. Various condi tions and influences have contributed to the upward shaping of prices—prom inent among them being the specula tive confidence shown in foreign mar kets. It appears evident that in our markets the buying has not been large ly on the part of the smaller class of operators, and that the advance has more especially profited the larger trading interests. December wheat at Chicago was quoted as low as 574 c, on September 8, ranging as high as 68fc the last of the month. Thus far in October the range for December delivery has been 66Ja 79fc, the daily quotations being as fol lows: Low. High. Low. High. 1....68 i 704 12....68t 70 2.... 68i 69J 13.... 704 701 3.... 67i 681 14-... 694 71 5....66f 68J 15.... 694 704 6.... 68f 69| 16.... 714 724 7.... 67f m 17.... 734 76£ 8.... 674 69| 19.... 774 78J 9 ... 20.... 75$ 79 10.... 684 594 21.... 754 77f With an advance of about 49 per cent in the value of wheat it might rea sonably be concluded that the great change has balanced the various fea tures which have furnished occasion ' for such a pronounoed shaping, or oth-1 erwise it is in order to conclude that the previous position of prices so long prevailing was abnormally and wholly unreasonably too low. So far as the change in the world's situation of wheat supplies is concerned it hardly seems to justify a further extravagant movement upward in values, at this time. It has been pertinently observ ed by a London writer that the threat ened deficiency in wheat in India is! prospective and not immediate. This I observation is applicable in other di rections, In our wheat regions there has been a withholding of grain, but if the speculative tendency should be checked there may bo expe"ted con siderable offerings of wheat in the in terior where none has of late been available. December wheat at Chicago closed 44c below the highest point of the wt-ek. 6c above the lowest point, and sse lower than a week ago. Corn at Chicago for December closed 3ic below the highest point of the week. 24e above the lowest point of the week, and Jc higher than a week ago. Wheat receipts at primary markets were 8,235 000 bushels for the week against 6,624,000 the preceding week, and 7,998,000 last year. Corn receipts were 6,054,000 bushels, against 3.555,000 the preceding week, and 2,744,000 last year. a » —- The Mexico Bugbear. Our distinguished friend, Major Kirk patrick and other gentlemen who are weeping over the impending degrada tion of the great American Republic, point their index fingers in warning at the republic of Mexico as an example of what free silver will do, without knowing that the federal adnMiiistra tion at Washington hasthreatauaa the removal of Colonel Crittenden, our chief consular agent to that country, for making public information about the marvelous progress of Mexico and the high wages paid to labor there. They didn't wish Colonel Crittenden to tell the truth until after the election for fear it would damage the cause of the gold-grippers and hurt the chances of the Republican party. But if this disparagement of Mexico were just—and it is not —what does it all amount to ? Is it not preposterous to compare this great Giant of the Western World with that pigmy of the Montezumas? Just consider it for a moment: The United States has a pop ulation of 75,000,000 Mexico has a population of and only about 3,000,000 of these are whites, and they have not one what of tne thrift or industry of our people. The export trade of Mexico is... $ 32,858.000 And her imports 30,287,000 Total foreign trade $ 63.145,000 The export trade of the U. S. is $ 654,835.000 And the imports 892,111,000 Total foreign trade $1,546,910,000 Thus the foreign trade alone of the United States is nearly. THREE THOUSAND PER CENT: GREATER than that of Mexico, while the domes tic commerce of this country is nearly FIVE HUNDRED TIMES GREATER. The single State of Illinois has ten times more railroad mileage and car ries fifty times more tonnage. Besides, Mexico coins $25,000,000 of silver, which is 40 per cent- of her for-1 eign commerce. If the United States , I were to coin a like proportion of silver j to her foreign commerce it would coin j in one year $640,000,000, or more than has been coined since the foundation of the government. The simple state ment of the facts and figures relating to the trade differences of the two countries ought to cause any well-in-1 formed man to refrain from making a comparison of the United States' fl uancial ability with that of Mexico. But the question that we would like to ask right here is this: if it will re duce the United States to the level of Mexico to have free silver coinage, be cause Mexico has it, nsrhy will it not re duce us to the level of Egypt to have the gold standard, because Egypt has it? Egypt is on a gold basis and so is unspeakable Turkey, and savage Spain, and benighted India, and bar barous Africa. Maybe this latier fact explains why the Palmerites in this country are consorting with Africa and coddling the Senegambian vote. Maybe that is why tney are hiring lawyers to watch the count and see that Africa I gets on top. Gold Bugs Concede Virginia to Bryan. A Richmond special to the Baltimore "One of the most conspicuous sound money "leaders in Virginia, if not the most conspicuous leader, admits that the Bryan electoral ticket will carry the State by an immense majority. He wouldn't be surprised at something, like 25,000 to 30,000. One of the inti -1 mate associates and close political friends of Mr. M. E. Ingails, president of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, who is making such an effort for Mc Kinley in Virginia, gave up the con test. " This gentleman placed ilr. I Bryan's majority in this State at thirty j thousand. ' From Secretary Morton's war talk, it was supposed that he was at the I front during the war, fighting the Con federates he made such an unprovoked attack upon last week. It appears, however, that during the war he was no where near burnt powder, but was editing a newspaper, and, strange as it may seem, was accused of being a cop perhead and a member of the Knight* of the Golden Circle, an antt-war or ganization.—Alexandria Gazette. Glkdness Comes With a better understanding of the transient nature of the many phys ical ills, which vanish before proper ef forts—gentle efforts—pleasant efforts— rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge, that so many forms of sickness are not due to any actual dis ease, but simply to a constipated condi tion of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt ly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore ' all important, in order to get its bene ficial effects, to note when you pur chase, that you have the genuine arti cle, which is manufactured by the Cali fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by all reputable druggists. If in the enjoyment of good health, and the system 'is regular, laxatives or other remedies are then not needed. If afflicted with any actual disease, one may be commended to the most skillful physicians, but if in need of a laxative, one should have the best, and with the well-informed everywhere, Syrup of Fi<*s stands highest and is most largely used and gives most general satisfaction. fab 1-lyr The Great Medicinal ADJUVANT.

Large Gatherings Great Bryan in Indiana- Senator Voorhaos Indorses His Can didacy. Terre Haute, Ind., October 22.—An extremely large crowd, numbering in the neighborhood of ten thousand was addressed briefly by Mr. Bryan at Frankfort, but it was not to be con sidered in point of size beside, the tre mendous audience that had gathered at La Fayette. It was, in fact, three separate gatherings all in the court house Square, and Mr. Bryan made three speeches from the same platform, oae from each side. There were at least 25,000 in the aggregate of the as semblage. It was reserved for Brazil, the well known mining center, to exceed in demonstrative appreciative of the Democratic candidate any small city at" which he spoke duriug tiie day. All along the streets to the park where the speaking occurred he was wildly cheer ed. A thousand miners were in the escort procession. The nearby neigh borhood had contributed to the im mense throng that gathered to hear him, and it is estimated that nearly, if not quite, 25.000 people composed the concourse. At 8:15 the Bryan special pulled out for Terre Hante, where it arrived thirty minutes late. The Bryan day demonstration here concluded to-night with two speeches by the silver champion. Silver clubs and war veterans escorted him from the railroad depot to the courthouse. The streets were crowded with people all along the route. At the courthouse Mr. Bryan addressed 20,000 people and then proceeded to the Terre Haute House, where he spoke to 8000 more. At the second meeting Mr. L. P. Bene dict, private secretary of Eugene V. Debs, presented the candidate a silver blotter in behalf of the progressive or gmized workiogmen of Terre Haute. A letter from Senator Voorhees, ex pressing regret at his inability to pre side there and endorsing Mr. Bryan's caddidacy, was read. | William J. Bryan has a European audience which applauds as loudly as h ; s American listeners. A telegram from Berlin to the New York Journal says: "In his speech before the Vienna Parliament urging the Austria Gov ernment to "go slow" in enforcing the gold standard until after the American election had decided what would be the future financial policy of that c mntry Herr J ax, the Czech leader, quoted extensively from AVilliaiu J. Bryan's recent speeches. The sentiments expressed by the Democratic candidate were frequently bnd enthusiastically applauded, and Herr Jax's read me was often interrupt ed by the "Bravo's" of the assemblage. Miss. Boom Married. New Yokk, Oct. 22.—Miss Virginia Duane Rouss, only daughter of Charles Broadway Rouss, was quietly married to David Lee, of Hartfurd county, Md., Sunday morning last. Mr. Leo is Mr. Rouss's private secretary and has lived with the Roub« family at their resi dence. The young couple have been in love with each other for a long time, but Mr. and Mrs. Rouss would not consent to their marriage, so the pair decided to take the matter into their own hands. Mr. Rouss, when informed of the marriage, took the matter phil osophically and blessed the young couple. .♦ » ♦ Dr. Randolph who has been principal of tho Central State Hospital near Peterbbug, resigned last week on account of ill health.
