Judge Quartos Stirs up Buck ingham Voters. Hon. Julian M. Quarles, Democratic candidate for Congress, opened the cam paign in Buckingham this week. On j Monday, tho day he made a speech at the courthouse, both the Democrats and Republicans bad meetings and as the court-house could not accommodate the crowd, the speaking took place outside. Senator H. D. Flood, S. L. Ferguson, and Editor Clements, of Appomattox; I Hon. Beverly Harrison, of Amherst; Paul Pettit and Hon. Pembroke Pettit, of Fluyanna were among the visiting Democrats present. Judge Quailes, was given a warm, cheering reception, and his rooms wera thronged by the people of the county and surrounding counties, who assured him of their hearty support and co opera tion. The Judge was introduced by Hon. Edmund Hubard, first cousin of tbe Republican nominee,and County-Chair man Dr. W. E. Pratt, presided over the large meeting. In presenting Judge Quarles, Mr. Hubard warmly commend ed him, saying be was esteemed at his home, the best place from which to learn of a man's character and standing, and declared that the people of Buckingham would like Judge Quarles better and better each day as they knew more of Judge Quarles opened his speech by saying that while he came from over the blue mountains in the great Valley, it was always with pride that he recall ed the fact that on the eastern side of the Ridge was the place of his nativity and the home of his ancestors. He had passed much of bis life in this section of the State. "I am a Tuckahoe," said he, "native and to the manner born," and your interests will be safe in my hands." Colonel Hubard, the Republican nominee, had said that since the battle of Manila the people must rise above party, and then proceeded to speak for the gold standard. I don't rise above my party ; it's good enough for me. Manila freed the Cubans, but now we must look to De mocracy to free our own home people. The issues now are those of 1896, to gether with the great questions grow ing out of the Spanish-American war. Free silver was right in 1896; it's right today, and all that has since occurred, but goes to strengthen the position of bimetallists. Today values are low and limes are bard, and the question is, What's the cause and what is tbe re medy? Insufficient volume of stand ard money is the answer. But they at tempt to explain away low prices. It can't he overproduction, for the econo mists tell us truly there is no such thing as permanent overproduction; there may be an overplus one year, but short crops follow. Nor is the downward movement attributable to improve inen.B in machinery, for the greatest improvements in productive machinery took place between 1848 and 1860, and wheat was high. Twenty-five years of falling prices, a continuous downward movement, declares that there is an in sufficient carrency. Judge Quarles showed how by the discovery of silver at Postoi, Peru, wheat rose, the rise being only checked by the revolutions closing the silver mines, and, again, cited the impetus that was given to the price of wheat and farm products by the discovery of gold in California in 1846, which thus added to the volume of redemptive metal money. Prices then went up from 15 per cent, to 30 per cent. Pros perity, said he, can never come with out a rise in prices, and a permanent rise in prices rests on an increased volume of standard money. Colonel Hubard, my opponent, says we never had two standards of money. Yes, silver was the unit of value, but the currency rested on gold and silver, as Thomas Jefferson said it should, and in demanding silver at 16 to 1 we ask for no new thing, but are but returning to the currency of the Constitution. Touching the great crime of 1873, Judge Quarles shouted, silver was tak en away without your direction ; why should it not be restored at your direc tion ? We are asking for the best money silver and gold, both at 16 to 1. Tbe income tax was intended to equalize the taxation on rich and poor, its object to tax property which otherwise would escape its just share of burden, and with telling effect he quot ed Disraeli "that property has its duties to perform as well as its rights to en joy." Five times the United States Supreme Court decided that an income tax was constitutional, aud then, in 1895, the court, as constituted, reversed its oft-decided, well-determined deci sions. We ought to have an income [ tax, because it's right, and nothing is settled until it's settled right. Justice Harlan, of the United States Supreme Court, said that the effect of abolishing income tax was that every workman, artisan, and minister of the Gospel may be made to contribute, but the bondholder and the rent-eater may not contribute one cent. The Republicans said, we want bonds issued, and they issued nearly five hun dred millions, about one half of the bond issue in tbe war between the States, and that, too, before a battle had been fought on the land, and more than that, they tacked on an internal revenue law to raise one hundred and fifty mil lions a year—a law that makes the masses carry all the burden, whilst pro perty, save in the case of the inherit ance tax, pays nothing. How needless was this. Today we have some three hundred millions in the Treasury, aud one million a day is rolling in. Will you let this tax co on ? Colonel Hubard says let it alone. Commissioner of the Revenue N. B. Scott declares that the Dingley act is insufficient, and that we must keep up the revenue act. If you want to groan under these burdens, elect a Repub- At l_exington I turned and looked at him, and I said the gentleman is for prot.ction, for gold-standard, imperial ism, and for monopolies, and he said not a word of demur. You have paid $200, --000,000 a year for sugar, nearly a* much las was paid for flour. In seventeen years the Sugar Trust had collected #550,000,000, and what was the result to the people? It had effected bad legis lation and corrupted law-makers and voters. What do you think of it ? Mr. McKinley was elected to reform the cur rency, but was hardly warm in his seat at the White House before he called an extra session of Congress, and they passed the Dingley bill. Its deficit last year was thirty five millions, while the Wilson bill it sought to improve was de ficient only eighteen millions, and was! fast reducing even that. '•I am opposed to monopolies and the protection thereof, and it's to your in terest, too, to oppose them. But there is a question greater even than silver, tariff, or any other question in our platform—the right of the people to govern themselves. If the people are wrong for a time, they have every in terest to correct themselves, and will correct it; but tighter and tighter will the monopolies tie about you their coils." As to Colonel Hubard's objection that I criticised McKinley, I will say that it is right and proper in a republic to criti cise a public servant, and we'll do it until we have an empire and an emper- Nor can the Republican party claim all the credit for the success of the Spanish war. The glory of it belongs to the whole country. As to McKinley's appointment of Lee, Butler and AVheeler, this was but his plain duty—to appoint the best men re gardless of party or section ? But how did be do in appointments in time of peace ? In his Cabinet he put that tool of the trusts,McKenna, and that, too, against the protest of Republicans as well as Democrats ; and, more tban that, he put in the Cabinet Griggs, another corporation attorney, and great was the rejoicing among the trusts. They gave Griggs a $3,000 feast, and McKinley at the Waldorf Astoria sat down to that Belshazzar feast with sixty represent atives of trusts. Infamous were his ap pointments of negroes in Georgia and Louisiana. There were certain places that negroes might fill without creating friction, but these appointments of ne groes were a wrong to the whole people, negroes as well as whites. The exorbitant figures at which vessels for the nayy were bought, far over the original costs, were cited by Judge Quarles with much effect. The brave boys in blue gave their lives on the sea and the field, and asked but that they be fed and clothed. The contractors got the money : did the boys in the trenches get the supplies ? Don't these things need investigation? Send me to Congress, and I'll look into the book and exert myself to recover and stop the squandering of your funds. ■id breaks his bow at tbe sight of a ill of pimples. Hollow cheeks, n eyes, and a sallow complexion win uefy his best intentions. Beauty is more than skin deep. The skin is merely the surface on which is written in plain characters the condition of the body. Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Dis covery is good for the complexion be cause it makes the whole body healthy —because it clears out impurities of all kinds. By increasing the ability to as similate nutritious food, and by the in fusion of its own ingredients it enriches the blood and so makes solid, healthy flesh. It cures diseases of the lungs, liver, stomach, bowels, skin and scalp, simply because all these diseases spring from the same cause—a disordered di gestion and consequent impure blood. ♦ ■ _> Colored Soldier from Staunton Dead. In a New York hospital on Tuesday last, a colored soldier died from his wounds received at Santiago de Cuba. He was a member of the Tenth U. S. Cavalry aud report says was a member of the company in which Lieut Carter '' Johnston is an officer, but this was not exactly certain. It is certain, however, that he was in tbe 10th, and he is a na tive of Staunton and well known here. His name was George Mayo, he was raised here, and volunteered some years ago. His grandfather, Shedrick Jack son lives near Thorurose cemetery. One of his uncles is Aaron Jackson, who is well known as a house cleaner in this city. Mayo was a very respectable man and a magnificent soldier, and his relations here are among the most re spectable colored people in the city. Just how he was wounded could not be learned; Emmett Kinney Married. Emmett Kinney, who has been Hon. Jacob Yost's private secretary, and who, when Mr. Noon was appointed deputy marshal some time ago, was ap pointed to, fill the vacancy in the posi tion of deputy postmaster, has been away on a vacation for some weeks, reached the city on Friday. He waß married during his absence and brought his wife home with him. New Assistant Postmaster. J. G. O'Callahan, of Rich Patch, Alleghany county, has been appointed assistant postmaster by Major Yost to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna tion of R. Emmett Kinney. Mr. O'Call ahan comes to Staunton highly recom mended and the appointment is well re ceived by the people generally. George F. Eakle, who was on Tuesday arrested by Deputy Marshal John D. Rodgers and bailed by Judge Kirby. in $1,500 to appear here on the 29th to answer for irregularities in the postofflee at Bolar, Bath county, has long been a mer chant at that point, and Las been doing what seemed to be a prosperous business. The office is not a large one and that ir regularities of any great amount could have occurred seems remarkable. It has not been long since Mr. Eakle was in this city buying a large stock of goods. in modern times a sick man is stoned out of ail his chances in life by the crowd of istling men who ye no place and no _T i_. a 0 has bilious turns 1 tired feelings and quent "off-days" ?ht as well go out business. they do not go any further. But you never know a man as soon as he feels that he is not get ting the forceful strength and energy out of his food that he ought to, will begin tak ing Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery, he will soon put himself in the position where he can do a man's work easily and cheerfully. His appetite will be sharpened; his liver invigorated; his digestion strengthened; an edge put on his whole nutritive organism. Those subtle poisons which debilitate the entire organism and invite consumption and a host of other diseases, will be driven out of the system; and he will gain plenty of pure nourishing red blood, muscle power and nerve-force. In short he will be a man among men. There are hundreds of delusive temporary stimulants, "marl extracts," sarsaparillas and compounds, which are more or less "boomed" by merely profit-seeking druggists; but an hon est druggist will give you the " Golden Medical Discovery" when you ask for it. If weU-in formed, he knows "that its sales have steadily increased for thirty years and that it is the in vention of an educated, authorized physician who has devoted a life-time of active practice and profound study to chronic diseases.
