STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND VINDICATOR.
POLITICAL SPEAKING.
Monday was the lir6t day of the
September term of the county court,
and as was expected the day was given
over to politics. Messrs. Frank T.
Glasgow, of Lexington, and Thomas
Whitehead, Jr., of Amherst, were pres
ent to lepresent the Democrats, and Col.
K. T. Hubard, the Kepublicancandidate
for Congress, was on hand to espouse
his own cause. The Democratic speak
ing was held ou the court green while
the Republicans held high carnival in
the courthouse. About noon the Detno-
Ie speaking commenced, the speak
jccupying a stand in front of the
lit clerk's office, erected for that
ose. Chairman W, T. McCue
1 the meeting to order, and Lieu
it-Governor Echols presided, intro
_g the speakers. Mr. Glasgow,
is not a stranger to the Augusta
c, was first introduced, aud for
an hour and a half he held bis
■uce spell bound. He discussed
much force the various issues and
a number of sledge hammer blows
c Republican party. His speech,
i was a strong one, was frequently
tuated with applause. At the
usion of Mr. Glasgow's speech, Mr.
Is introduced Mr. Thomas White
of Amherst. That gentleman
forward and proceeded to argue
)ut ceremony why the people of
_ta should give Judge Quarles a
ug majority. He did not discuss
any of the issues at length, but devoted
most of his time to a discussion of tbe
record of Col. Hubard. Both speakers
received the best of attention and were
listened to with a great deal of interest.
Owing to the small crowd in town the
attendance was not large.
I REPUBLICAN SPEAKING..
I Before the Democratic speaking was
concluded a goodly number of people
assembled in the courthouse to hear
Col. Hubard. Col. S. Brown Allen
called the meeting to order and spoke
at some length iv introducing the
Buckingham gentleman. Congressman
Yost occupied a seat in the audience.
Col. Allen, though a supporter of Mr.
Hackman for Congressional honors,
stated that the Republicans had nomi
nated the best man in the district, and
one who would carry the Republican
banner to victory. He finally yielded
and introduced Col. Hubard, who made
an address teeming with information on
the issues of the day from a Republican
standpoint. The only feature of the
meeting was the scarcity of the col
ored brother. When Col. Hubard took
bis seat there were loud calls tor Mr.
Yost and the Congressman responded
in his usual vigorous style. There was
frequent applause and the people seem
jed to enjoy the remarks of the Republi
can orators. The crowds were about
evenly divided. As to who gained an
advantage will be hereafter disclosed
when on the Bth day of November the
votes are counted.
Judge Quarles spoke at Nelson court
Monday. He will speak here next
county court day, as will also Hon. 11.

Col. Hubard Speaks at Mt. Sidney.
Mt. Sidney, Va.. Sept. 26. —Colonel
R. T. Hubard, tbe Republican candi
date for Congres, addressed the sover
eigns of Mt. Sidney en Saturday night,
and a good sprinkling of Democrats
was in the crowd. Bro. Hackman in
troduced him, and endeavored to make
the impression that he was for him
tooth and toe-nail, but it was easy to
see that, though he took his medicine
like a little man, it tasted bitter.
Col. Hubard made a good impression
at first, but the way he threshed over
old straw and raked up dead issues was
Eion. He reminded us of our old
E. L. Hourf, who always goes
o 1844 in order to get a good run
itart. Col Hubard only went
to 1883, but he seemed to think
c was again lighting the Demo
as a Readjuster, and was better
on dead issues than live ones.
When he touched the burning questions
of finance and mal-ad ministration of
the AVar Department he 'was very
timid. He gave the "free silver" cause
a passing kick, terming it "nonsense,"
made a good many mis-statements as to j
the quantity of gold now in circulation,
and rested his argument for election
upon the plea that it would be foolish
for the people to take the House away
from the Republicans while they held
X Senate and the President, declaring
t England had a better and freer
form of government than the United
States, which was news to most of his
audience. The Colonel was silent on
the question of Alger and the horse
doctor he sent to the volunteer camps
to physic the troops, contending that
McKinley and Alger needed no defense
from him. Ido not think the Colonel
made many votes.
But, like all well regulated feasts, the
best came last. Mr. R. R, Fauntleroy,
one of the F. F. A ..—according to his
own account—put himself forward as a
sample of the "young Republicanism of
Virginia." The Democrats seemed to
like the sample better than the Repub
licans. This young gentleman, who
boasts that he tore his pants at New
Hope, treated the Mt. Sidney folks to
an address that would have made
Daniel AVebster blush, and showed such
wonderful knowledge of dictionary and
the use big words can be put to (but
shouldn't) that we could only wonder
and wonder and wonder.
It is reported this morning that the
friends of Col, Hubard met in confer
ence Saturday night, after the meeting,
and it was decided to cancel all the ap
pointments for Mr. Fauntleroy. AYe
could not hear the reasons urged, but,
I oh, the pity of it, that the eloquence of
his young voice should be stilled, and
neither the "tongue of his body nor the
tongue of his buggy" hereafter can be
useful to his friend, is sad. We had
hoped to have the pleasure of again
hearing him on the issues of the day.
Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident, of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia, was the subject, is
narrated by him as follows: "I was in a most
dreadful condition. My skin was almost yel
low, eyes sunken, tongue coated, pain contin
ually in back and sides, no appetite—gradual-1
ly growing weaker day by day. Three phy- j
sicians had given me up. Fortunately, a
friend advised trying 'Electric Bitters;' and to
my great joy and surprise, the first bottle
made a decided improvement. I continued
their use for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I know they saved my life, and robbed
the grave of another victim." No one should
fail to try them. Only 50c per bottle at B. F.
Hughes' Drug Store.

Bank Failure at Clifton Forge.
The Bank of Alleghany at Clifton
Forge closed its doors Saturday and
did not resume business Monday i
morning. In flnaucial circles this action
on the part of the bank created no sur
prise, but it did create considerable ex
citement about Clifton Forge. The
suspension of tbe bank has been at
tributed to various causes —the dullness
of business being the one to which it is
|[y attributed, but it is rumored
}ne, if not more, of the directors
, heavy borrower from the bank,
pto this time had been unable to
goad his obligations. A full dis
closure of the facts may be sensational.
This bank was organized iv 1890 or
1891, during the boom, and was started
principally upon the capital of monied
men of Charlottesville, among whom
were Charles Harman and W. AY.
Flanagan. j

Two things the people of this
