The loitsbeep are willing, they say, to re turn to the fold, but they must dictate the terms. They will return if the Democrats abandon the the Chicago platform, silver agitation and Wm. J. Bryan. We do not draw the case Strongly when we assert that on no other conditions have we heard one of Ii agree to come back. These being srins of return and surrender can Democratic party accept them etain its organization, much less :lf respect? We think not. If must abandon these they had as nbanuou their name and go over nd baggage to Hanna and eor on. They had better admit that s preferable to peace, that mo tes are the saviors of the people, taxes insure prosperity,and that c ideas of Republican govern taught by Washington, Jefferson >• statesman of ancient or modern are misleading, false and dan is. It is humiliating to know here are some Democrats who are ig to accept these terms, but we they are few and far between, for the masses of the people, the principles which actuated them in '96 are as present now as then. Their leader who was only beaten by the combined army of trusts and corporations, and the corrupt purchase of votes with a fund the like of which the world never saw, and before the enormous deeds of which honesty hides her head in I shame,and free government becomes a mockery, will be again followed by them, if he again becomes the candi date of the Democratic party, followed with the same devotion, the same con sciousness of right, and the same hon esty of purpose as actuated them in the last presidential campaign, when • they saw their honest ballots buried 1 under a mightier pile of dishonest ' dollars.

J Bryan. Whether he had said so ii y private or in public was not the ques c tion which interested (he people, tha si is the Democratic people of the coun 0 try, but the fact ilself. His statemen i-1 heretofore referred to is the manne t of the Senator's unbosoming hitntel rj through the New York AVorld, a:,i while we are willing to give him tbi J benefit of the doubt, still his ntter 9 1 ances in the article are not reassuring 5 1 It is also a fact that siiice he has nradi . this public statement, the Republic-1 , and Gold Bug press hive commend , the "wisdom" and "foresight" of th , I Senator, while the Democratic pre t has not showered compliments of th • character on him. One Gold Bug pape referring to the article editorial 1 says: "Major Daniel concludes b i saying, 'I see no encouragement t , Democrats in the recent elections This means of course with the party as Col. Bryan and his Populist associ ates are heading it." Thus are Sena tor Daniel's words translated. He is made to condemn "Bryan and his pop ulist associates." He is made to cast I slurs upon those men who have the courage to stand by Mr. Bryan as their ideal of a man and a leader. We are not so sure that the translation given by the Republican and Gold Bag I press is strained. The proof seems strong in their favor. There was no I especial reason why the Senator should lat this time speak at all, if his words be true when he says, '-I know no more than the general public, being con- I stantly occupied in matters to be j deal 1 ; with now, and have no sugges tions or advice to offer which I think worthy of attention." The day may arrive when he will regret that he spoke either in private or in public on this subject when he had •noshing to t worthy of attention." Most men me so when they speak under such litions, and so many speak thus. old Discovered in Floyd County. discovery of gold was recently c in Floyd county which bids fair to be quite a valuable find. It has long been known that gold has existed in this mountainous country, but so far it has not been found in sufficient quantities to warrant the working of it. The assay has been favorably re ported on by the representatives of northern and western capitalists. The area of gold bearing quartz covers a large boundary and the leads are said to be broad and continuous. .—♦ ■ • New Bank in Harrisonburg. Harrisonburg is to have a new bank. The authorities at Washington have au'horized its organization as a national bank with a capital stock of $50,000.

It to two causes—the large iducts and the change in which has made money and grain much lower, [i that it takes so much more wheat and corn to get a dollar than formerly. Wheat, cotton and corn cannot be worked by a trust— they cannot combine to raise their prices, but all the manufactured arti ( cles are now advancing iv money value under trust protection. The money managers have increased the price of money, and thus depressed the price of agricultural products, and shield, under the wings of a trust, all the products of the trades of the country. Wheat is consequently lower, aud is P' '"T downward at present, and fear, labor uuder that condi sotue time to come. The tarin e.-s for his grain, and Ihe trusts )n have him paying higher prices for all the manufactured articles essential to his farming pursuits. Munn & Bon, in their market price list, say: Talk as people will about the world's crop being 250,000,000 bushels smaller than last year's, the speculative public seem to be indifferent, both to this and to the smallness of the receipts at our primary markets. Small the receipts undoubtedly are. but at the same time the visible Supply in this country is K *o,ooo bushels against only 17,000, --a year ago, and the world's visible ply on Nov. 1, is stated at no lees than 191,191,000; 102,877,000 on Oct. 1, and 106,886,000 on Nov. 1, 1898. The increase in Oct. was 28,314,000 bushels, as against an increase in Sept. of 20,300,000, and in Oct. 1898, of 14,616, --000. yfet the world s exports last week fell off to a noteworthy extent, Argen tina in particular shipping less freely. One thing, however, is certain. There can be no decided or permanent im provement in prices until Europe be gins to buy more freely. Corn is well spoken of, for it pays better to feed it to live stock than to send to market, the recepts are light, the visible supply is only about, half as large as at this time last year and the crop is compara r Booming Hay for Leader. special from Washington says: Hon. James Hay, of Virginia, will, in all probability, be chosen as the Demo cratic caucus leader at the next ses sion of the House of Representatives. Hon. Joseph Bailey will not offer for the honor, andDeArmond, of Missouri, will not be supported by the unani mous action of the minority, as in his opposition to local Washington inter ests he has engeudered some strong autugonism, and the local feeling here is an important factor in Congressional life. Mr. Hay's position on the army bill won tributes of praise from the Demo crats all over the country, aud his conduct of the debate assured his col leagues of his ability as a tactful aLd resourceful leader on the floor. Some of Mr. Hay's friendsarealieady on the ground, and letters have been received from members f.rom every State. The selection of Mr. Hay would bj a great honor to Virginia, and would j give her representatives here a power in legislative affairs greater than they I have had for years.

Daniel will be one of the pallbearers at the funeral of Vice-President Hobart, wnirh takes G. A. HOBABT DEAD. Vice-President of the United . States Died Tnesiay. WAS ILL MANY MONTHS. Deceased Was 51 Years Old and Had Been Successful in Both Business and Politics—Nation Mourns Loss of a Good, Man. The Vice-President of the United States, Garrett A. Hobart, died at 8:30 o'clock Tuesday morning at his home in l'aterson, N. J. Mr. Hobart's condition began to change for the worse late Monday af He became suddenly weaker and his heretofore wonderful vitality deserted him. Dr. William K. Newton, who has re mained at his bedside almost constant lly since his condition became serious two weeks ago, at once administered strengthening medicines, but they seemed to have no effect upon the pa tient, who became much worse. At about 10 o'clock Monday night he sank into a deep asleep, but shortly be fore midnight he suddenly awoke and spoke to Mrs. Hobart, who was kneel ing by his bedside. What his words to her were are not disclosed, but after they were spoken the Vice President became unconsci ous. He remained in a comatose con dition during the balance of the night. Dr. Newton ascribes the cause of death to heart failure. At his bedside when he passed away were: Mrs. Hobart, Garrett A. Hobart, Jr., Dr. Newton and wife, and Miss Alice Wardell, the nurse. As soon as the Vice-President had expired a message announcing his death was sent to President McKinley at the White House at Washington, and another message was dispatched to Governor Voorhees, of New Jersey. When news ot the death of Vice I President Hobart was received in Washington, immediate steps were taken to show the respect of the Gov ernment to the memory of the distin guished dead. I The White House was closed to vis> ois and the flag that floats over it ras lowered to half mast. The flays o other public luildings followed ttrsj example. Secretary of State Hay called at lh.-( White House as soon as he heard the sad news. Senator Fairbanks and ex- Secretary Poster also called and ex pressed to the President their sympa thy for the loss of his colleague. The sad intelligence bore heavily on M <s. McKinley. She has been more intimate with the family of the Vice President than any other in the city, and both the Vice President and his J wife held a deep place iv her hea.it. J She broke down aud gave way to [heart-breaking sobs when told of Mr. I Hobart's death. Tha mind of the President was d: yer;ei from the sense of his own lo.s I by his endeavors to soothe his sorrow ing wife. Vice-President Hobart was born in Monmouth county, N. J., June 3,1844. I He held a number of public offices in I New Jersey and was elected to tLe I Vice-Presidency in lb9G, since when he jhis played an important part iv politi cal affairs, his advice being constantly sought. As presiding cftieer of the Sen»te 1 c I was a distinct success, being linear Itial and popular with Republicans and I Democrats alike. Between President McKiuley and I Mr. Hobart the most cordial relations! existed. The home of the Vice-Presi dent and the White House were only a block apart, and visits between the two were of a most informal and neighbji ly character.
