What a misfortune that our gallant
Hough Rider cannot co to China where
he could shoot a few Boxers in the
back.
If Gen. Roster succeeds in obtaining
tne Charlottesville postofhce. his good
fortune may lead others to confe f s
their past offenses to Teddy.
Tbe little Filipiuos "ate up a con
■iderable number of American soldiers
one day last week. Strange they keep
on doing this when the war is over.
The National Banks alone are put
down for $10,000,000 to Hanna's brib
ery aud corruption fund; Sugar, To
bacco. Steel plate, Railroad, Coal oil
and the other trusts are expected to
give as much more as is needed. Al I
this that -'business"—their business of
public plunder, may not suffer by a
change of administration When Car
negie admitedly made $40,000,000 out
of protection last year, that given to
insure honest Republican victory this
year will be a mere bagatelle, though
Col. R. T. Hubard, who is the Re
publican ring candidate for Cougress
in this district, has heard some how
or other that a rumor is afloat that be
i» to be hauld down and Mr. Yost
run up iv bis stead as the Congressioi
al candidate. Mr. Hubard's friends
and possibly he assert that this is uot
only "a I—c," but "a Democratic cam
paign I—c." Tbe first we ever heard
of the report was through the Rich
mond Times, and if they will expunge
tbe woid "Democratic" from their al
legation, we will admit that they are
possibly after the light allegator, aud
will be delighted if they catch him.
ONE OF A KIND.
There never was hut one war and
that was our war with Spain, there
never was but one battle aud that was
the battle of San Juan bill, there never
was but one soldier and that oue is
Teddy. There never was but one in
terest protected, and that Is the inter
est of the Trusts; there is but one kind
of money, aud that is gold; there is but
oue boss for the G. O. P., and that boss
is Hanna; there will be but one elec
tion this fall, and that one will be a
plenty to knock out Imperialism.
OUR WEEKLY REPORT.
In our National Abbatoir, or slaugh
ter house, in Luzon, about 600 Filipi
nos were hung up last week, but the
carcasses were not brought in so easily
as on some previous occasions. Gen.
McArthur, who has charge of the
slaughter pens there, somewhat as a
gentleman of the name of Armour has
of hogs and beeves In Chicago, wires
that while the American abbatoir
boasted of about 000 carcasses, the
competitive Filipino abbatoir was bet
ter filled than usual, for they had bung
up last week about 100 American car
casses. Our Chinese houses have only
begun business, but they bid fair to
have a heavy trade in the near future.
E WHOSE CHOICE IS HUBARD?
onie Republican journals are ask
ing, was Flood the choice of the people
of tbe 10th district V If not, they say,
"hie nominatiou was Imperialism."
Let us aek pray what kind of a nom
ination was Hubard's? Was he the
choice of anybody but himself and the
office holding ring who dictated his
nomination ? He was not nominated
with any idea that be would be, or
could be elected. He was made the
candidate, the people believe, simply
to choke off Mr. Yost, the only man
who had a ghost of v show for election
if nominated. Hubard is a stool pig
eon and nothing more. He moves
like a puppet when the strings are
pulled. He is not a strong man in his
own county, and very few people know
or care anything about him in any
other part of the district, and especially
in Augusta, where hie negro loving
qualities do not set well on the white
Stomach, even if he bad uo other traits
to condemn him in Democratic eyee
and nose. We hear he will get some
Deiuicratic votes in Augusta, but we
have not heard it from any very reli
able source, and would scarcely believe
it if tbe statement were made on oath.
The kind of Democratic vo.es he will
get in Augusta will be given by such
good and loyal Democrats as Jas. Strib
ling, Willis Carter, Parson Williams,
and their white brethren who hold all
the otlices or expect to bold them all.
He will, we admit, get a large majority
of such Democratic votes as these, but
no other will he get. Real Democrats
do not train in that kind of company.

TRUE DEMOCRACY.
To The Spectator
1 hid thought I uever would vote
f_>r H. D. Flood for Cuugress, l»tt
sine- 1 kiiuw inure if the man. and
have s»eu what a splendid l)emccr*t
he i-, I have learned toadtnirehim.and
desiie through your paper to recant
all 1 ever thought or said against him,
for 1 now see in him the kind of Deal
ocrat and candidate I admire. I shall
cordially support him.
Augusta.
We had intended to publish the
above letter iv our local columns, but
on reflection place it in a moie con
spicuous place, as it contains au hon
est conviction. The gentleman who
writes this letter does not know Mr.
Fiood personally, he speaks from what
h : has heard aud read about him. If
Mr. Flood lived in Augusta we believe
he would be as popular as he is iv Ap
pjiuattox, aud we further believe that
he is one of those men who improves
ou acquaintance. He is no recluse,
tie goes out among the people, he in xes
with the Democrats of his county and
the State, and be takes them into his
counsels and seeks their advice. On
all subjects of State or natioual import
his opinions are au open book. His
career as a Democrat is untarnished,
he has voted the ticket from his youth
up, and though lie has been defeated
in several hotly contested battles, he
has never been known to sulk in bis
tent or falter or fail. Two years ago
when Judge Quarks obtained the nom
ination over him, he stepped on the.
platform aud pledged his cordial and
hearty support to tbe nominee, and
went into the campaign speaking and
working, and carried Appomattox for
him by a majority of about 300 votes.
This is what draws Democrats to
him. It is no test of party loyalty to
vote for the candidate of your choice,
it is when a candidate whom you do
not want is nominated that you show
your fealty. Mr. Flood showed his by
supporting bis opponent cordially aud
iv earnest.
j DEVOURED BY THE TRUSTS.
It will not be long uutil winter.
When it coinos the poor will feel their
poverty as they have seldom felt it
before. All they eat and wear, save
pork and Hour, are many times higher
thau before. Coal oil has been ad
vanced, sugar is seven cents per pound,
coal will soon be six dollars per ton,
freights of all kinds have been advanc
ed by tbe railroads, touching the poor
in a thousand ways. This comes from
tbe trusts, and combines, and corpo
rate power wbich each day work and
plot in Wall Street for further victim
izing tbe poor, and yet the poor are
asked to vote to elect the man who has
made tbe laws under which these
pirates do their plundering. These
trusts have made but one kind of
money which is gold, so that money is
scarce and growing scarcer, they are
destroying silver and paper money.
When money is scarce it is almost im
possible for people to get it, therefore
the people will soon be greater and
greater slaves. When they have be
come slaves they will still be asked to
vote for their lords and masters, and
if they do it, well and good, but if they
refuse or show a disposition to become
unruly, they will be whipped into line
as the railroad employees and in fact
all other persons who were working
for corporations were four years ago,
only the lash will be laid on heavier
than before. Surely the people see what
is about to befall them and will free
themselves before it is too late. Re
publican victory meams slavery. De
mocracy is freedom
The Tenth District.
Every Congressional district in Vir
ginia has named its Democratic caudi
date except the Norfolk district,whose
couventiondoes not meet until August
23rd. Among the recent nominations
is that of State Senator Flood iv tbe
adjoining Tenth district. Mr. Flood
made a fair, open and manly fight for
the nomination and won it over great
odds, defeating Judge Quarles, the in
cumbent, and three other strong aspir
ants. The News has not always ap
proved the public course of Mr. Flood
aud tbe writer had occasion frequent
ly in tbe State Senate last winter to
oppose measures projected by the Ap
poinattox Senator; but there is no de
nying the fact that Mr. Flood has ele
ments of strength aud personal charac
teristics that makes him many warm
friends, who stand up for aud follow
his lead with unusual devotion and
enthusiasm. Without such friends be
never could have secured the nomina
tion at Buena Vista last Wednesday
over such men as Quarles, Gordan,
Loving and Catlett, after a hot but
friendly rivalry, marred by no sugges
tion of unfair methods. Mr. Flood has a
bright mind, is a strong debator, and
is thoroughly well informed on pudlic
affairs. He ought to experience no dif
ficulty in beating his Republican op
ponent at the election in November;
and if the Democrats of the district, do
their duty his majority will be large
enough to discourage any tampering
with the result by a Republican
Congress, should that be the complex
ion of the next House of Representa
tives.—Lynchburg News.
All for Bryan.
£. L. Uodkiii. editor of tbe New
York Evening: Post, who was vehe
mcnt iv dennuciaton ot Bryan in 1896,
is now out with an open letter, in
which he says: "My opinion of Win.
McKinley and the men who surround
him and act with him is that they are
thh most dangerous set of scoundrels
by which any civilized country was
ever beset."
In an interview Senator Wellington,
of Maryland, declared that be would
support Mr. Bryan, aud that he would
be a candidate for re-election to the
■Senate. He said: "1 am unalterably
opposed to the re election of President
McKinley. Bryan Is a better mau in
every way than McKinley, and I re
gard his election as essential to the
preservation of the republic."
While in New York Friday, former
Senator Gorinau, of Maryland, s.nul he
would take part in the national Dem
ocratic campaign, begiuningabout tbe
15th of September. His first efforts
are to be in Maryland, and then the
national committee of his party will
receive the benefit of his experience.
He says that while it is too early to
speculate ou results, Bryan will develop
surprising strength.
Slate, Committee Meeting,
Tbe Democratic State Committee
will meet iv Richmond on Wednesday,
the loth instant, at 11:30 o'clock a. in.
lion. J, Taylor Ellysou, State chair
man, issued the call Saturday after
noon. The committee will meet at tbe
Jefferson. The meetinir will be an iui-1
nortaut at one in that the committee
will map out tbe plan of the fall cam
paign. Mr. Kllysou will aunouuce at'
this meeting the names of tbe mem
bers of hie Executive Committee of;
ten. It is not expected that there will J
be any changes made, or certainly but i
few.
SOME POWERFUL REASONS WHY
Yuu Should Vote fur Mr. Bryan.
In mi «hle circular letter, the Wash
ington Times makes a general and most
able review of the present political
situation. It claims fur itself the dis
tinction of being the only newspaper
of cmisequence published between
New York ciiy and Richmond, which
is earnestly aud loyally supporting the
Democratic national ticket, iv giving
its reasons for supporting Mr. Bryan
thai journal says:
The times has never b.-eu a party
organ in the common meaning of the
term and it never will be; but M ad
vocates Mr. Bryan's election vow: —
Fiist: Because U believes in the man.
Second: Because it believes iv tie
Democratic Platform.
Third: Because if the government of
the people is to be continued in the
people, the Republican administration
now iv power must be turned out of
office without delay.
The Democratic candidates were
beaten iv l.snt; by the labor vote iv the
large Cities and the farmer vote in
Maryland, Kentucky, and the great
(States of the middle West It is time
for both of these elements to return to
their natural allies. Neither the Amer
ican farmer nor the laborer iv tbeciius
believes in imperialism, Trusts, the
domination of the money power, a
great standing army, or unlawful com
binatious in lestraiut of trade. Both
ot ihem revere the Constitution aud
demand that all legislation xhall be
shaped in accordance with and not ju
(ieliauceof the supreme law of the
land.
Wtieu we went to war with Spain it
was to free Cuba aud not to lurottle
Porto Rico, and to increase the regular
army trom H5,*M to 100,000 men. We
noutemplated no secret alliance with
England for the abandonment of the
M'Hirue Doctrine and thealienation of
tUe Nicaragua Caual. But these (with
the war taxes) are the net results of
the.war without counting tbe inter
minable struggle iv the Philippines
where incompetency and corruption
have done their perfect work.
lie for in is necessary in all branches
of the general government and a man
with a backbone is needed in the White
House. Mr. Bryan is such a man aud
with his elevation to the Presidency
the reform will come.
America will resume its statiou as a
Republic.
The Constitution will govern both
President and Congress.
The Philippines will be pacified.
Cuba will be turned over to the
Porto Rico will be erected into a Ter
ritory.
The War taxes will be abolished.
Be Trusts will be regulated aud
rolled.
The Nicaragua .Canal will be built
and owued by the United States.
The thieves in public office will be
driven out, and —
Hanuaisin aud all it stands for will;
Ko.
The consummation is one so devout
ly to be wished that not a Democrat
in Virginia should spare himself iv
the coming campaign, lie should be
up and doing from now on, and preach
the gospel of Democracy to all with
whom he has influence. He should
make loyalty to the National ticket his
watchword.
Bryan's Speech of Acceptance.
"William ,1. Bryan's speech of ac
ceptance of the Democratic nomina
tion for the I'residency, made at Indi
anapolis Wednesday, has been abso
lutely approved by the party managers.
His leading supporters are thoroughly
satistied aud, in fact, delighted with it.
Theae were over 50,000 oulsibers pres
ent at tbe meetings.
"Tbe address of Mr. Bryan is de
voted almost entirely to a discussion
of imperialism, the Philippine ques
tion, militarism, standing armies aud
the invasion of foreign lauds. Tbis is
the keynote of the speech.
"Mr. Bryau deals with imperialism
almost altogether, and says if be is
elected President of the United States
he will, immediately after bisinaugiira
tion, call an extra session of Congress
to end the war in the Philippines and
to provide a stable self government lor
the Filipiuos.
"He alludes to the 1G to 1 plank only
once, charging tbe Republican party
with having made a uew issue iv de
claring for the gold standard aud re
pudiating international bimetallism.
lie charges the Republicans with hav
ing changed their principles iv regard
to silver from piofessiug international
bimetallism to advocating the mono
metallic gold standard—gold, pure and
simple."

How To Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common glass with your
water and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
sediment or set

unhealthy condi
tion of the kid
neys; if it stains
your linen It is
evidence of kid
ney trouble; too
frequent desire to
pass It or pain in
the back is also
convincing proof that the kidneys and blad
der are out of order.
What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain In the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects Inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
It, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine you should have the
