One of the most, dramatic scenes ever witnessed in a national convention on curred when William Jennings Brvau seconded the nomination for president of Senator Ooekrell of Missouri. The convention was iv no mood to listen to long seconding speeches, and had ruthlessly cut short all the others, but the man who had I wice been the I)t mo cratic standard bearer was accorded full opportunity to pay nil he desired. He was given a tremendous reception, his third great ovation of the conven tion. - Mr. l.ryan said: Gentlemen of the convention—Two nights without sleep and a cold make it dillicult for me to make myself heard 1 trust that it will be easier in a mo ment, but as I desire to speak to the delegates rather than to the visitors I hope that they at least can hear. Eight years ago a Democratic con vention placed in my hands the stand aid of the party and gave me the com mission as its candidate. Pour years later that commission was renewed. I come to night to the Democratic con vention to return the commission and to say that you may dispute whether I fought a good fight, you may dispute whether I finished my course, but you cannot deny that 1 have kepi the faith. (Cheers ) As your candidate I did all 1 could to bring success to the party. As a pri vate citizen today I am more interest ed in Democratic success than I ever was when 1 was a candidate. (Cheers ) Tbe reasons that made the election of a Democrat desirable were stronger in 1900 than in 1890; and the reasons that make the election of the Democratic candidate desirable are stronger in lUO4 than they were in 1900 DANGER OF MILITARISM. The gentleman who presented New York's candidate dwelt upon the dan ger of militarism, and he did not over state the dangers. Let me quote the most remarkable passage that ever oc curred or that was ever found in the speech of nomination of any candidate for president. Governor Black of New York, in presenting the name of Theo dore Koosevelt to the Republican con vention, used these words: "The fate or nations is still decided by their wars. You may talk of orderly tribunals and learned referees. You may sing in your Hchools tbe gentle praises of the quiet life. You may strike from your books the last note of every martial anthem and yet out in the smoke and thunder will always be the tramp of horses and the silent, rigid, upturned faces. Men may prophesy and women pray, but peace yWlcome hereto abide forever on this qfcjSrh-only when the dreams of childhood are the accepted charts to guide the destines of men. Kvents are numberless and inignty, and no man can tell which wire runs around the world. The nation basking today in the quiet of contentment and repose may will be on a deadly circuit, and tomorrow writhing in the toils of war. This is the time when great fig ures must be kept iv front. If the pres sure is great the material to resist it must be granite and iron." This is an eulogy of war. This is a declaration that the time hoped for, prayed for, of perpetual peace will nev er come, thus eulogizing tbe doctrine of brute force and giving denial lo the hopes of the race. Aud the President, a candidate for re election, is present ed as the embodiment of that ideal, the granite and the iron, to represent the new ideal of militarism. Do you say you want to defeat the military idea? Friends of tbe south, are you trying to defeat the military idea? Let me tell yon that not one of you, north, east, or south, more fears the triumph of that idea than I do. If this is the doc trine that our nation is to stand for, it is retrogression, not progression; it is the lowering of the ideals of the na tion; it is the turning backward to tbe age of force. More than that, it is a challleuge to the Christian civilization of the world, and nothing less. (Loud applause.) Twenty seven hundred years ago a prophet foretold the coming of one who was to be called the Prince of Peace. Two thousand years ago he came upon tbe earth and the song that was sung at his birth was "Peace on earth, good will toward man." (Loud cheering and applause.) For two thousand years this doctrine of peace has been grow ing. It has been taking hold upon tbe hearts of men For this doctrine of peace millions have given their lives. For this doctrine of peace thousands have crossed oceans and given their lives among savage tribes and among foreign nations. This doctrine of peace the foundation of Christian civiliza lion, has boon the growing hope of the world. And now tbe ex-governor of the greatest state of the .nation presents for the oflice a president of the great est republic of all history, a man who is granite and iron, and who represents, not the doctrine of peace, but tne doc trine that the destinies of nations are still settled by their wars (loud ap plause). Will you of New York pre sent a graver indictment against I" res ident Itoosevelt than that ? Will you of the south present a graver indict ment against President Roosevelt than that? Ido not ask what is the char acter of the man; be may have every virtue. He may be exemplary in every way, but if the President shares the idea of the man who nominated him; if the President believes, with his sponsor at Chicago, that wars must settle the destinies of nations; that peace is but a dream; that women may pray for it; that men may proph esy about it; tbat all these talks of orderly tribunals and all this, are but empty sounds; if he believes these things, he is a dangerous man for our | country aud the world. (Prolonged cheering and applause.) How can you defeat him 7 1 tried to defeat the Republican party as your candidate. I failed, you say ? Yes, I did. I received a million more votes than any Democrat had ever received before, and yet I failed. TRIALS WHY HE FAILKD. Why did I fail? Because there were some who had affiliated with the Dem ocratic party who thought my election dangerous to the country, and they left and helped to elect my opponent. That is why I failed. I have no word of criticism for them. (Applause.) 1 havealways believed, I believe tonight, 1 shall always believe. I hope, that a man's duty to his country is higher than his duty to his party. I hope it will always be true that men of all parties will have the moral courage to leave their parties when they believe that to stay with their parties will be to injure their country. The success of your government depends on the independence and the moral courage of its citizenship. But, my friends, if I failed with six million and a half to defeat the Re publican party, can those who defeat ed me succeed in defeating the Re publican party t If under the leader ship of those who were loyal in 1896 (applause), we failed, shall we succeed -•-» A*kflD +2-^ STAUNTON, VA., FRIDAY, AUGUST 12. 1904. nnder the leadership of those who were not, loyal in 1891!? (Applause.) If we are going to have some other god besides this war god that is pre sented lo us by (iov. Black, what kind of a god is it to he ? M ust we choose between a god of war and a god of gold ? Is there no choice between them V If there is anything that com pares in hatefulness with militarism it is plutocracy, and I insist that the Democratic party ought, not to be compelled to choose between militarism ou one side and plutoerary on the other side. (Applause.) We came here and agreed upon a platform. We were in session sixteen hours last night,if you can put.sixteen hours into a night. We entered the committee room at 9 o'clock last even ing, and left it at 12 o'clock today. But, my friends, I never spent sixteen hours to better purpose in my life (cheers), because I helped to bring toe party together, so we couid have au unanimous platform to go before the country on in this campaign. (Ap plause.) How did we get it? It was not all that I would have desired. It was not all that your eastern Demo crats desired. We had to surrender some things that we wanted intbeplat form. They had to surrender some things they wanted in the platform. But, by mutual concession and mutual surrender, we agreed upon a platform, and we stand on that platform. ((Jreat cheering.) i'.ut, m; friends, we need more than a platform. (Applause.) Wehaveto nominate a ticket, and that is tbe work of this convention. Had you come to this convention instructed for any man to the extent of a majority, I not only would not have asked you to disregard your instructions, I would not if I could have prevented it permitted you to disregard your instructions. (Ap plause.) I believe in the right of the people to rule. I believe in the right of tbe people to instruct their dele gates, and when a delegate is instruct* ed it is binding upon him. But my friends, not a majority came instruct ed for any candidate. That means that you were left upon your responsi bility to select a candidate, and a grave responsibility it is. Crave is tbe re sponsibility resting upon these dele gates in this convention. I have not come to ask anything of this conven tion. Nebraska asks nothing but to be per mitted to fight the battles of Demo cracy. (Cheers.) Some of you have called me a dictator. It was false. You know it was false. (Cheers ) How have I tried to dictate V I have sug gested that 1 thought certain things ought to be done. Have not you ex ercised the same privilege ? Why have I not a right to suggest ? (Applause. A V.oice —You have.) Because I was your candidate am I now estopped to ever make suggestions? (Cries of I "No! No!") Why, sir, if that condi-j tion went with a nomination for the presidency no man worthy to be presi dent would ever accept a nomination. (Applause), for the right of a man to have an opinion aud to express it is more important and sacred than the holding of any office, however high. I have my opinions about the platform. I made,my suggestions. Not all ot them#ere received. WAStI?!) RKAF FIRMATION. I would like to have seen tbe Kansas City platform reaffirmed. (Applause.) lam not ashamed of that platform. I believe in it now, as I believed in it when 1 was running upon it; then I was your candidate, but the people in the Democratic party did not agree with me, and their will was supreme. When they veto my suggestions I have to accept. There is no other court which I can appeal to. I have not at tempted to dictate about candidates. I have not asked.the Democrats of this nation to nominate any particular man. I have said that there were many in every state willing to be presi dent, and I have said that out of six millions and a half who voted for me in both campaigns, we ought to be able to find at least one good man for presi dent. (Loud applause.) I have made these suggestions ouly in a general way. lam here tonight as a delegate from Nebraska. 1 have not confidence in my own opinion to tell you that I can pick out the man and say that this man must be nomi nated or we shall lose. I have, I think, a reasonable faith in my own opinions, at least I have this faith: that 1 would rather accept my own and stand by them if 1 believed them right, than to accept anybody else's if I believed them wrong. (Loud applause.) Ne braska is not here asking for the nomi nation of any man. We now have a platform on which we all can stand. (Loud applause and cheering.) Now, give us a ticket behind which all of us can stand. (Prolonged cheers.) You can go into any state you please and get him. 1 have not as much faith as some have in the value of a locality. I have never been a great stickler for the nomination of candidates from doubtful states on the theory that the personal popularity would elect them. I have had so much faith iv the virtue of Democratic principles that I thought a Democrat ought to vote for a good man from any other state before he would vote for a bad man from his own state. (Applause.) I do not be lieve much in this doctrine of state pride, aud I found that when people come with a candidate and tell us first that we must carry a certain state, and that that man is the ouly one who could carry the state they do not put up a bond to deliver the goods if they are accepted. (Applause.) And, any how a state that is so uncertain that only one Democrat in the nation can carry it cannot be relied upon in a great crisis. (Applause). "Now, we have our platform. Select your candidate. If it is the choice or the wish of this convention that the standard should be placed in the bands of the gentleman presented by Cali fornia, the man who, though he bas money, pleads the cause of the people; the man who is the beloved, I think 1 can safely say, among laboring men of all the candidates proposed, the one who more than any other represents opposition to the trust question. TO SECOND COCKUELL. If you eastern Democrats who have insisted that your objection to me was my belief in tree silver ; if you Demo crats are willing to take a gold man, I am willing to let you have your way on that question in this man, for I will trust bis honesty on all questions. (Ap plause.) But my friends, I do not — Nebraska does not —demand that. I only mention these candidates a« il lustrations. I come here to second tbe nomination of a man, and 1 come to second his nomiuatlon, not because 1 can assert to you that he is more available than any other person who might be named, but because I love the man, and because on tbe platform we have adopted I don't think there is any good reason why every Democrat in the east might not vote for this man. I come to second the nomination of Senator Cockrell of Missouri. (Long continued applause, followed by cheers.) He Isthe nestor of the Senate. He is experienced in public affairs. He is know; he has a record. He oan be measured by it; aud, my friends, I VINDICATOR. would be willing to write my indorse m nt on bis back and send him out to tue world willing to guarantee every 'hing he did. (Loud applause.) They 8 y that he comes from the south. What if he does. I do not share the the feeling that some people have that the Democratic party cannot take c candidate from the snath. They eav be was in tbe Confederate arm;. What if he was ? I don't share tbe lie lief of those who say we cannot nonii nate an ex-Confederate. (Prolonged cheeriug and applause.) My friends, that war, that cruel war, was forty years ngo. Its Issues are settled; its wounds are healed. The participants are friends. We have got another war on, and those who know what the war between plutocracy and democracy means will not ask where a man stood forty years ago. They will a»K where does he stand today in th's war. My friends 1 believe that the great issue in this country today is plutocracy vs. democracy. You have said that I had just one idea, the silver ideal Well, a while bßck they said I had only one, but then it was the tariff idea. There is an issue greater than tbe silver issue, the tariff issue, the t rust issue. It is tbe issue between plutocracy and democracy; whether this is to be a government of tbe peo ple, by the people and for the people, administered by officers chosen by the people, administered in behalf of the people. It is either this or it is to be a rule of tbe moneyed element of tbe country for their own interest alone. The issue tins been growing. I want y »v. Democrats here assembled, to help us meet this Question. You tell me the .Republican candidate stands for mili tarism. Yes, but be also stands for nlutocracy. You tell me be delights i i war. Bat there is another objection to him, and that is that he does not enfore the law against a big criminal as be does against a little criminal. The laws are being violated today, and those laws must, be enforced. The people must understand that we are to have equal rights to all and specinl priviliges to none. (Applause.) We have had the debauchment of elec tions. It was stated the other day that in the little state of Delaware $250,000 was sent in the state in one day jnst before the election of 1896. Some say that we must have a great campaign fund and go out and bid against the Republicans. My friends, I want to warn you that if the Democratic party is to save this nation it must not save it by purchase, but by principle. (Ap plause.) Every time we resort to pur chase we cnltive the spirit of barter, and the price will constantly increase, and elections will go to the highest bidder. If the Democratic party is to save this country, it must appeal to the conscience of the country. It must point out the dangers to the republic, and if the party will nominate a man 1 care not from what part he comes, who is not the candidate of a faction, who isjnot the candidate of an element, but the candidate of a party, the par ty will stand by him and will drive the Republican party from power and save this country. (Applause.) My friends, I believe that you could take a man from any Southern State who would go out aud make a fight that would appeal to Democrats, all the Democrats who love Democratic prin ciples, and to Republicans who begin to fear for their nation's welfare —take such a man and I believe that he would poll a million more votes than the can didate of any faction whose selection would be regarded as a triumph of a part of the party over the rest of the party. (Applause ) 1 simply submit it for your' consid eration, I am here to discharge a duty that I owed to the party; I knew be fore I came to this convention that a majority of the delegates would not agree with me in my financial view. I knew that there would be among the delegates many who did not vote for me when I sorely needed their help. I was not objecting to the majority against me, nor to the presence of those who went away aud came back. But, my friends, I came, not because 1 thought it would to be in tbe minority in opinion, but because I owed a dnty to tbe six million brave, loyal men who sacrificed for me. (Cheers) I came to get them as good a platform as I could. I have helped them to get a good platform. (Applause.) I carve to help to get as good a candidate as I can, and I hope that he will be one who can draw tbe faction together, who can give to ns who believe in aggressive, positive, Democratic reform, some thing to hope for and to those who have differed from us on the main question that he can give them some thing to hope tor, too. I close with an appeal that I make from my heart to the hearts of those who hear mo: "Give us a pilot who will guide the Democratic ship from mili tarism, the ScylU of militarism, with out wrecking her upon the (.'harybdis of commercialism. (Demonstration.) A lazy llvor may be only a tired liver, or a starved liver. A stick Is all right tor the back of a lazy man.

Cafes and lunch-rooms are tilled with men and women who seem to give all their time and attention to thoughts of properly or improperly feeding their stomachs. "It ia of course best to cat slowly, but not too much," says Dr. Pierce chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Sur gical Institute, of Buffalo, N. Y. In tliis 20th century people devote so much time to head work that their brain is fagged and there isn't sufficient blood left to properly take care of the other organs of the body. The stomach must be assisted in its hard work —the livar started into action —by the use of a good stomach tonic, which should be entirely of vegetable ingredients and without alcohol. After years of experience in an active practice, Dr. Pierce discovered a remedy that suited these conditions in a blood-maker and tissue-builder. He called it Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery —an alterative extract that assists in the digestion and assimilation of the food iv the stomach —so that the blood gets what it needs for food and oxidation, the liver i; at the same time started into activity and there is perfect elimination of waste mat ter. When the blood is pure and rich, all the organs work without effort, and the body is like a perfect machine. Free !
