THE ELOQUENT BRYAN Delivered Two Speeches In Den ver, Colorado. Denver, Col, Jan. 17.—C01. W. J. Bryan made two public speeches in Denver today, both of which were list ened to by audiences only limited by the capacity of the auditoriums. The first was at 2 o'clock in the hall of the House of ltepresentatives, to which only those who held tickets were ad mitted. The other was at 8 o'clock, at Coliseum Hall, the largest room in the city, where thousands struggled for standing room, while other thou sands turned away disappointed in not even getting a glimpse of the great silver champion. In his address before the Legislature Mr. lirjan devoted most of his time to a discussion of the duties of legislators and other public officers whom he de signated servants, not masters of the people. After this address Mr. and Mrs. Bryan repaired to the residence of Gov. Thomas, where they were entertained at dinner, at which half a dozen of the leading Democrats in the State, in-j eluding ex-Govs. Grant and Adams, j and a number of ladies, were guests j The crowds which greeted Mr. I Bryan at Coliseum Hall tonight began gathering at 4 o'clock, four hours be. fore the time set for the meeting. At 8 o'clock, when Hon. Milton smith. chairman of the State Central Com mittee, called for order, there were 5,000 persons in the hall and as many more on the outside pressing for ad mission, j Gov. Charles S. Thomas was pre sented as chairman of the meeting, and in an eulogistic speech he intro d uced Col. Bryan, who was received with prolonged applause. Mr. Bryan spoke, in part, as follows: ~~ "The Bible tells us that Ahab, the King, wanted the vineyard of Naboih and was sorely grieved because the owner thereof refused to part with the inheritance of his fathers. Then followed a plot and false charges were preferred against Naboth to furnish an excuse for getting rid of him. '• 'Thou shalt not coyet,' 'Thou shalt not bear false witness,' 'Thou shaft not kill—three commandments were broken, and still a fourth, 'Thou shalt not steal' to be broken, in order to get a litle piece of ground. And what was the result ¥ When the King went forth to take possession, Elijah, that brave old prophet of the early days, met him and pronounced against him the sentence of the Almighty, 'In the place where the dogs licked the blood of Naboth, shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.' "Neither his own exalted position nor the lowly station of his victim could save him from the avenging hand of outraged justice. His case was tried in a court where neither wealth nor rank nor power can shield the transgressor. "Wars of conquest have their origin in covetousness, and the history of the human race has been written in char acters of blood because rulers have looked with longing eyes upon the lands of others. Covetousness is prone to seek the aid of false pretense to car ry out its plans, but what it cannot secure by persuasion it takes by the sword. "Senator Teller's amendment to the intervention resolutions saved the Cubans from the covetousness of those who are so anxious to secure posses sion of the island that they are willing to deny the truth of the declaration of our own Congress that 'the people of Cuba are and of right ought to be Mr. Bryan then proceeded to apply the story of Naboth to the Philippine question and argued that a war of con quest would be wrong in principle, as well as expenshe, and as harmful to the people of the United States as to the Filipinos. He spoke at considera ble length, and concluded as follows: "Impel ialism might expand the na tion's territory, but it would contract the nation's purpose. It is not a step forward toward a broader destiny; it is a step backward toward the narrow views of Kings and Emperors. "Dr. Taylor has appropriately ex pressed it in 'his creed of the flag,' when he asks: Shall we turn to the old world again With the penitent prodigal's cry¥ "I answer, never. This republic is not a wayward son; it has not spent its substance in riotous living. It is not ready to retrace its steps, and with shamed face and trembling voice solicit an humble place among the servants of royalty. It has not sinned against heaven, and God grant.that the crown ed heads of Europe may never have oc casion to kill the fatted calf to com memorate its return from reliance up on the will of the people to dependence upon the authority which flows from regal birth or superior force. "We cannot afford to enter upon a colonial policy. The theory upon which a government is built is a mat ter of vital importance. The national idea has been a controlling influence upon the thought and character of the people. Our national idea is one of self-government, and unless we are ready to abandon that idea forever, we cannot ignore it in dealing with the Filipinos. "That idea is entwined with our traditions; it permeates our history; it is a part of our literature. That idea has given eloquence to the; orator and inspiration to the poet. Take from our national hymns the three words, free, freedom, and liberty, and they would be as meaningless as would, be our Hag if robbed of its red, white and "Other nations may dream of wars of conquest and of "distant depend encies governed by exterior force; not so with the United States.

The particulars as given by Vinds are as follows: He was on his way home from work and stopped in at Mrs. Campbell's to deliver a package of coffee. That be had been there a few minutes, and was in the act of leaving when some ope knocked at the door, and in walked Campbell, who had been separated from his wife for over a year. He spoke to his wife when he came in, and said: "Here is the man 1 want to see.'' The victim's wife and her sister ran out, leaving the men alone. Vinds says that Campbell had a club, and attacked him, and that they had a tcnffle in the house, and that he ran out into the yard, Campbi 11 following and again attacking him, aud then he j shot him in self-defense. Campbell's wife says that as reached her neighbor's house she heard a shot and some one cry out, but was afraid to go back. The next morning Vinds sent his son down to see what was the result of his shooting, and he found Campbell dead about 75 yards! from where the shooting occurred. The sou went back and told his father, and Vinds sent for the magistrate and gave himself up. He is now in jail at Har risonburg. ♦— m —• Sometimes it seems to weary woman that she must certainly give up. The simplest and easiest work becomes an almost insurmountable task.

During a debate in Congress a few days ago over the consideration of the naval personnel bill, Representative Berry, Democrat, of Kentucky, in a speech advocating the passage of the bill, said "there are people who are trying to steal from Schley the credit of the glorious triumph he won on July 3,1898." In this connection Mr. Berry read the following poem amid a whirlwind of laughter and applause: When the Spanish fleet, with full head way, Dashed out of Santiago bay, Taking the chances of death and wreck, Who stood on a Yankee quarter deck, And marked the game with eagle eye; Say, was it Sampson, or was it Schley¥ Who was it, when shot and screaming shell Turned Sabbath calm into echoing hell, Steamed into the thickest of the fray, His good ship leading all the way.

Why it was done and by whom the report was circulated, we know not, nor do we care to know, and will only add, that, had the originator been actuated by motives of fairness and justice; he could easily have ascer tained the full amount paid by refering to the commissioner's book at the Kty clerk's office, or by consulting warrants at the county treasurer's office.

I Newspaper from Cuba, have leceived from our friend Harry N. (,'ootes, now at Ma i, Cuba, a copy of a newspaper hed in Havana, called The Lucha. n eight column, six page paper, printed in English on the first page, and principally, in Spanish as to the rest, and bears on the front page the pictures of Gen. Fitz Lee, Gen Johnß. Brooke aud Gen. Win. Ludlow, all officers in high rank in Cuba. The dale of the paper is January 2nd, the day after the Spaniards hauled down their flag, formally surrendered the island to the United States,and depart ed for Spain. The scene was evidently a touching one and whilst we have seen various accounts of the surren der, we give below in part The Lucha's account of it: The most important part of the cer emonies took place at the palace. Here were to be found Generals Brooke, Ludlow, Wade, Clous, Lee, Butler, Davis,'and all the other officials of the government and commission. Here were present, also, the Cuban Gener als May ia Rodrignez, Mario Menocal and Rafael de Cardenas who were B:sts of the American government. American soldiers were grouped around the palace on all sides, and through and around the square, in front of the palace. Two regimental bands rendered America and Columbia while the flag was being raised. There were some three thousand peo ple near the palace, and the music was a signal for prolonged cheering. Gener al Castellanos handed the list of Gov ernment property to General Wadel and received in return receipts for the Island, city, castles, etc. General Castellanos then said, Gen tlemen, It is with the deepest emotion that I surrender to the American commission the Spanish possessions in Cuba; in accordance wiMi the protocol and pursuant to the orders of Her Catholic Majesty in power for her son King Alphonso XIII—I hereby deliver to the commission named by the Amer ican government, all effects, papers and properties of the Spanish crown, in the Island of Cuba. May you be successful in your administration and may you never be in the position which I now occupy. He then asked to bi introduced to the Cuban General Mayia Rodriguez, whom he embraced, saying that he re gretted thi.t though of the same blood they had been enemies; Rodriguez le plied that, now that Cuba is free, they were so no longer. Castellanos then went to bis room and came out again with a small hand satchel, and escorted to the door by General Brooke, he descended to the carriage. He was accompanied to his launch by General Clous, who, at the landing, embraced him and said: "Viva Es pana." "Thanks, you are too kind," replied Castellanos, and his men dip ped their oars, and away from the shore I the boat bearing the last Spanish l rnor General of Cuba. c departure of Gen. Castellanos is inlike 'the last sigh of Moor," .after an empire of many centuries am, Boabdil, with a remnant of jllowers, left her shores casting I onging, lingering look behind." Thus did Castellanos surrender Cuba and depart for Spain, as he said "with the deepest emotion," but with digni-l Id gentlemanly bearing, and de I lg be thus spoke gracefully, but feeling, "May you be successful ur administration, and may you I be in the position I now occupy.'" I ;re are items of news, such as that Mr. Jose Lorenzo was stabbed by a I negro he was passing in the dark, and died. Dr. Eugeuio Luzarreta y Con get committed suicide, "not feeling himself strong enourig to stand the loss of Cuba, suffered by Spain." Au editorial on the subject of Gen. Lee says: "It is safe to say that Gen. Lee is the most popular man in the United States as far as the Cubans are con cerned." President McKinley's name is spelled MacKinley. A press of bus iness has prevented our reading and digesting the Spanish portion of the paper. A note from Lieut. Cootes ac companying the paper, says that one Jesus Rabi, a Cuban General who is in comman of the Cuban forces in Western Cuba had issued what they call a "Bando" calling the Cubans to meet at Bayamo, at which time a na tive seen in Havana shortly thereafter, said that the American forces would be given to January 31 to get out of Cuba, aud if not gone by that time steps would be taken to make them leave. All this is quite interesting, and this K settles one question beyond perad ;urc, and that is, that the Cubans are distressingly ignorant. The Eng lish portion of La Lucha shows that this language is new in that office and it is not handled to the best advan tage, but the paper being the first issued after the Island came under the English tongue, due allowance must be made. Its English has no doubt greatly improved long e'er this.

When a young man applies to a business man for a position, his personal appearance has a deal to do with the outcome. "Personal appearance" does not mean dress alone. It does not mean exterior cleanliness alone. A young v -i may be clean, so far as soap and water \ .1 make him, but be disfigured by unsightly pimples, erupcior.s and ulcerations on the skin. These are due to impurities in the blood. The blood becomes impure because it is improperly nourished. Instead of receiving the life-giving elements of the food, it receives the foul emanations of indigestion, bilousness and costiveness. The reason that Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery is the best remedy for disorders of this description is that it goes right to first causes. It gives a man an appetite " like a horse." It facilitates the flow of digestive juices. It corrects all disorders of the digestion, and makes the assimilation of the life-giving elements of the food perfect. It invigorates the liver. It purifies and enriches the blood. It makes the muscles strong and active. It tones and steadies the nerves. It makes a young man look as he should—strong of body, alert of brain and clean and whole some of skin. Medicine dealers sell it, and have nothing "just as good." " I had eczema iv its worst form," writes Austin Ramsey. Esq.. of Saltillo, Huntingdon Co., Pa. "I tried three doctors but got no re lief.
