Bryan and the Trusts.
When the Wilson free trade bill was
before Congress Mr. W. J. Bryan was
not only a member of that body bu: a
member of the ways and means committee
that framed that bill. Now Mr.
Bryan in his speech on" the wharf
Thursday evening had much to say
about trusts. It is strange that he
never thought about them when he had
an opportunity to advance some legislation
to restrict the evil he alleges
they are responsible for to-day. Where
was Mr. Bryan when the Wilson bill
was before the house with a preferential
duty In favor of the sugar trust, a
bill framed to perpetuate rather than
destroy a trust that Is eight times ac
oppressive upon the laboring men
throughout the United States as the
Standard Oil Company? We will let
the Hon. Charl?s E. Llttlefleld, of
Maine, answer that question through a
speech he delivered in the house of representatives,
on Friday, June 1, 1900, In
the course of which he said:
"There wan a tarifT hill (referring to thfc
WUson blll) that instead of destroying' the
?uj;ur iruju. encouraged u. AND WHERE

WILSON HILL THAT HAD A PREFERENTIAL

NOW OUR DEMOCRATIC
FRIENDS SAY. "OH. LET US SUSPEND
THE TARIFF ON TRUSTS." RUT
WHERE WAS WILLIAM J. RRYAN
WITH HIS "SIMPLE LITTLE RILL" IN
LET WILLIAM J. BRYAN TAKE
THAT AND EXPLAIN IT IN SOME OK
THESE SPEECHES THAT HE IS
ABOUT TO MAKE THROUGHOUT THE
COUNTRY. LET HIM ANSWER THAT
WHEN HE DISCUSSES THE QUESTION
OF TRUSTS.
"Wllllnm J. Bryan Introduced In thf*
5*lfty-*fcond ConKren n hill (H. R. hVH)

your 'idmplo little bill' then?, It irlll
not do to say that you did not have this
trust In mind, because In 1SS. as I shall
show you In a few moments, the Democracy
spent a good deal of time investigating
tho nugnr trust, and the tall end of this
Wilson bill had a provision In relation to
trusts. So the Democracy was thinking
about It; but the more they thought about.
It the more they thought they would not
bother tho sugar trust, Mr. Haveiney-r being
the head of It. 1 do not suppose ho
contributes anything to the campaign
fund of the Democracy. It would be very
unkind to suggest that. (Laughter on the
Republican side.)
State Fair Next Week.
Tho West Virginia Exposition and
Statt! Fair will open Its gates next Monday.
and offers the public a variety of
attractions and novelties scl 'urn seen
at an exhibition of this character. Tho
greatest feature?a pleasing Instance
of iir-. up-to-dnte management?'will bo
the opening of the gates at night when
tho grounds will bo made as light as
day by a grand elcctrlcal Illumination.
Ftolnir Jhr? tu'pntloth nnnlvnnrnrv nf
the establishment of the fair the Intelligencer
trusts that the attendance
will be of a record breaking character.
The institution deserves well of the
people of Wheeling and the region tributary
to the city. The association has
not made one cent of money. It has xnet
with disaster by ilood, and other obstacles
have obtruded themselves in a way
that would have wholly disheartened
any but-the public spirited citizens who
have borne the burden uncomplainingly,
and have fought discouragements
from civic pride. While carrying a
bonded, debt the association has each
year made, extensive outlays for improvements.
The grounds have been enlarged, new
buildings constructed, better provisions
made for stock, new grand stand erected,
and this year given a, new slate
roof, the race track widened and reconstructed
on scIentiHc principles. So
it will be seen that while .a little has
Kuuvf.iowarus reuucing ins aeot anu
paying Interest charges, the surplus, if
any, has been Invested In Improvements.
Under these circumstances,
outside of the multitudinous attraction*
offered, the association should receive
the heartiest support of the business Interests
of Wheeling, which annually
it does so much to advance in inducing
the presence of strangers, who other
wise would not visit the city.
The Intelligencer wishes for the State
Fair cloudless days and starry nights.
Sympathy for McGraw.
Really we feel sorry for Col. John T.
McGraw. He was down in the mouth
over the Democratic situation in West
Virginia, bis beloved state to whom, at
great personal sacrillce, over a year
ago, he "preserved a republican form of
government," and he conceived the idea
that scattered homeopathic doses of
Bryan was Just what was needed to invigorate
the torpid liver c' Democracy.
The national committee listened to his
plea and concluded that the scheme was
not half bad, so they opened the cave
of Adtlllam. wh*?rt? th? rtUmnfomoi?
dwell, and let Mr. Bryan loose.
Now if the Democratic leaders can extract
any comfort out of the merry-goround
tour through this stata- of their
presidential candidate they are perfectly
welcome to hug that delusion to their
bosoms, for it Is the testimony of the
people at the points Mr. Bryan visited
that he met with a frosty reception. All
of this fun cost the Democratic stale
committee over 5500 for the spcclal car
alone, and the Intelllsencer believes
that it was so much money thrown
away.

doleful party we Buggest that nothing

regulated periods on the stump. drawing
diagrams and explaining away the
presentment of the Taylor county grand
jury, the county in which Mr. McGraw
resides and is best loved. That report,
of a body composed of Democrats as
well as Republicans, whose conclusions
were unanimous, reads as follows:
"At a circuit court held for the county
of Taylor, at the court house thereof, on
the loth day of April. l?*9. we, the undersigned
grand Jurors for .the term of IS? of
the circuit court of Taylor county, have
fully and carefully examined into the'alleg^d
election frauds at the election held

the testimony taken therein to the judge
of our circult^court. # ^
"The testimony taken before the committee
of the house of delegates was read
in full by the secretary of llie grand Jury.,
It was found to be the unanimous opinion
of this grand Jury that there had been a

Bryan at Home and Abroad.
Mr. Bryan's peculiar affections are
centered on the Filipino 10.000. miles
away; whom he la afraid will te governed
without his consent, but ho has
no bowels of compassion for the throttled
negro citizen at home. Before
Bryan went upon the stand at Keyser,
W. Va., Philip Jackson, a colored Democrat,
of Charles Town, presented him
with the following and asked him to
sign it: "I do net countenance the Jim
Crow car'law or any measure that discriminates
against any American citizen
on account of color." Bryan refused
to sign, saying that he <5ld not
want any new issues injected into the
campaign.
This Is the same Bryan who heeds not
the cry of distress In this country, but
who proposer. If elected, to immediately
call an extra s??.?Ion of Congress, surrender
to a barbarian triba In rebellion
against thy sovereignty of the United
State* which he hnlped to establish, and
perforin other absurd tricks.
Jn hlM-Labor Day speech at Chicago
he said that "In other countries and in
other civilizations men have been condemned
to a particular occupation,
place, or caste; !n this country cach
man, however mid wherever burn, can
strive for thr; highest rewards of business.
state, or church, and these avenues
must be kept open."
Well, how In the Democratic party
keeping open these blessed "avenues"
you are talking about so much, Mr.
Bryan? In the south your party Is doIn;?
nothing else hut condemning American
citizens to a "particular occupation.
place or caste," which a knowing
exchange specifies as follows:
That in Louisiana Kf,712 whites, In defiance
of the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendment* to the constitution, have condemned
G6Z.fi33 black* to a condition of
hone lens torvltude.
That In Mississippi K9.703 whites, In defiance
of the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to thn constitution, have* destroyed
tho political liberty of 717,TJO
black*.
That In North Carolina 1.019,1)1 whltes.ln
deflanco of tho fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the constitution, have con
dcmncd 507,170 blackn to perpetual dtofran
i<u*-raent.''J$j!PiMMNRMHfiU
That In South Carolina 453,884 tfhltes. In. ,
defiunca of tho fourteenth and fifteenth
amendment* to tho constitution, have deprived
032,503 black* ot all rights except
those enjoyed by cuttle. And
That tour other great commonwealths In
thu.south, dominated by the Democratic
party. In defiance of the fourteenth and
fifteenth amendments to the constitution,
ore preparing to reduce;},000,000 blacks to
the condition of chattels.
Thi paper that the Charles Town,
West Virginia colored Democrat askci
Mr. Bryan to sign pledged him to oppos?
"any measure that discriminates
against any American cltlxen on account
of color." * Mr. Bryan's refusal to
subscribe to that sentiment places him
In the inconsistent .position of agreeing
to the governing of a certain
class of, cltlzcns at ' home
without th:lr cor^cnt, and op
posing a policy that enforces obedience
to the rightful sovereignty of the government
abroad; Isn't there a screw
loose somewhere in Mr. Bryan's mental
convolutions.
Democratic Harmony in New York.
They are having high old Jinks in the
New York state Democracy these days
with the pot calling the kettle black. :
Ever since, or it may have bean before,
the Kansas City convention Boss Croker
has b-:en rubbing it on ex-Sonutor ,
Bill "to beat the band." As may be
surmlicd Mr. Hill has not been passive
under these flagellations, and in his
speech at Troy on Labor Day the aflge
of "Wolfert's Boost" came off the perch
nnrt htf tho "T \m T? T? fn* T>-,~
politician of Tammany some pretty
hard blows. Mr. Hill admitted ' that
"political leadership there must always
be." Then ha scathingly denounced
that kind of leadership which Is "ignorant.
corrupt and arrogant, which ,tolerates
no criticism, knows no prudence
and accepts no suggestions: which first
dominates wards, then cities, and afterward
reaches out for the control of
states." Alter ha had said that and
more of the same sort, it would hava
been obviously superfluous for him to
explain that his denunciation was aimed
directly at Richard Croker.
Certainly so. Dick did not have to
muso "Wonder if he ineanB me." The
Cube of a Vacuum was up to snuff in a
jiffy and he let fly at David Bennett in
Hoboken English as follows:
"Mr. Hill attacked me In his speech. He
did not come right out and attack me by
name, but he did so Indirectly. That's his
style of doing business. He did the same
thing six years ago.
"Air. Hill never does things In the open.
He always hides behind something and
leaves a loophole to crawl out ot. He Is ?
deceitful, tricky and couldn't tell the truth
If he wanted to. He Is a picayune politician.
a 'iiennut nollilrlnn ' nml ho wn'iMn't
be a captain of an election district If ho
lived In New York City. Tammany Hall
wouldn't have a deceitful, untruthful
sneak like I' vc Hill In Its organization. If
it wasn't lor the.<*? things I would have
recognized Dave Hill as a leader long: ago.
What we want In a leader Is a man with
the courage to stand by what he means,
and not go sneaking around In the dark."
What a sorry mess It is. Croker delivering
homilies on honesty and probity
in politics! How pure and clean we
ar<?, said the Wallow to the Hog. Why *
It Is enough to make the Egyptian j
obelisk in Central Park shake with
laughter. . ^
A Delicate Experiment. 1
A firm in New York city proposes, to
take a novel way of giving an object
lesson of Bryanic times. Their proposition
is: "We propose to offer our men y
two dollars in Mexican or Peruvian sil- j
ver dollars for one United States do'.* j
lar. Possibly that may make them see ,
what kind of dollars they will receive if
Mr. Bryan has his way." That is. a
rather delicate experiment. The Jour- ^
nal of Commerce cautions the firm that r
"as sllverites are capable of queer Inductions
from the simplest facts we are
not entirely sura that the object lesson j
will be understood. There are people j
who suppose the American silver dollar
is lvn->Vi mnm tlmn \favUnn hn.
cause the United States is a richcr I
country than Mexico, though no ration- <
al human being can see the connection
between the value of a piece of metal,
whether silver or iron, and the wealth 3
of the country in which it Is produced, t
There are others who are quite sure
that two dollars are much better ttuin
one, no matter if the one will buy the <
two;- their arithmetical notions go no 1
farther than that two are more than
one, and they would be quite capablw
cf saying that two quarts are more than 1
one pound, or two gallons are morc'than
one rod.
We suggest that It be explained to the *
men that Mexican dollars?Peru is going
upon the gold standard?are free
coinage dollars and therefore worth the '
metal they are made of and no more,
while the United States dollars are (
made on government account and the
government Is determined to maintain
nil TTn(?nrl t2f-.tr,,.
Mr. Bryan promises free coinage, upder
which system the dollars must, like
those of Mexico, be worth simply the j
material In them."
As we have before pointed out the
Democratic party has always been in
favor erf expansion until It was absorbed
by the Populists. In the Democratic
convention held at Charleston, S. C.;
April 30, 1S60, the following was adopted
as one of the planks In the party
platform: "Resolved, That th? Democratic
party is in favor of the acquisition
of the island of Cuba on such terms
as shall be honorable to ourselves end
Just to Spain." And it will be noticed
that In the Cuban plank of the Democratic
plank of the Democratic platform
of 1S60 the only parties mentioned a3
concerned with tho spread of American
sovereignly over Cuba were the United

George Bancroft's Centenary.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican:
5eorge Bancroft was born in Worcester,
)ctober 3, 1800, and that city intends to
inve a celebration of his centennial unler
the auaplces of the American Antiluarlan
Society. The hiatorlnn left
iVorcester as a youth to enter upon his
ducation, and no part of his active life
n literature or public servlc<s was
lasaed there, but he was buried there.
;nd he was an interested member of
he Antiquarian Society, whose malnenance
la one of the excellent dlnInctlons
of the Heart of the Commonvealth.

WHALES'S BONES HOUSE.
Novel Structure Erected on Sullivan's
Island.
Baltimore Sun: Captain John H. Devereaux
has refused an offer of 4300 for
the Jawbone of a whale which was killed
In' the harbor of Charleston. S. C., about
fourteen years ago. The jaws measure
12 feet each, and are used as a grand entrance
to a summer house on Sullivan's
Island made of the bones from the
whale. The house is prettily arranged
und vines which cover it give It a most
handsome appearance. Tea was served
In this little house the other afternoon,
and the fact was brought out then that
Capt. Devereaux had refused the offer
for the bones. The whale was considered
the largest of Its kind that ever
drifted to southern waters.
Captain Devereaux is the superintending
architect for the government at
Charleston, and it was his idea to build
thr? nrlmr vvlfh fho umii nrtl?Mr?
Back of the main entrance the ribs I
have been put up as a covering and a
support for the" vines, and the large bone !
of the whale'H tall Is used as the throne 1
seat In the arbor.
The bones are thoroughly bleached
and superstitious negroes who have to
pass that portion of the Island on moonlight
nights go by at a double speed.
There Is something about the gaunt object
which imparts terror to ignorant
negroes.
There is a seating capacity (dr twenty-flve
persons in the whalehouse, and
the vertebrae of the spinal column form
the main seats.
Young People Take Warning.
London Moll: A new terror of courtship

that one of her ribs was fractured. After,

People are never so happy or unhappy
as they imagine they are.
The human mind is a gem. but it is
very often inspired by the setting.
A woman may be for all men to admire,
but she is for the happiness oC
one.
Everything may come to the man who
waits?except another man who owes
him money.
A man is often able to do seemingly
impossible things because he thinks he .
is able.
The man who borrows trouble doesn't
have to pay it back?but he never gets
done paying interest.
A pessimist is a man with an ingrowing
grudge against humanity in general
and himself in particular.
Some people dye their hair because It
is gray, and some because of a lack of
gray matter in their understanding.
Recently a St. Louis girl who had
just acquired her first beau heard some
one say that all the world loves a lover?and
she has been Jealous of the

REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR.
You can get the truth out of a woman
by tlattering her, but to get it out of
a man you have to get him scared.
Every woman whose husband can
never pay his debts believes the world
will realize some time what a great
man she married.
Lots of women go through life thinking
that all the other people think they
are artistic simply because they beep
their hair mussed up.
The only difference between a married
man and a man sitting in fresh paint
is that the man sitting In the paint
generally doesn't know it.
Every woman imagines that something
about her is "wonderful." Either I
she has "wonderful" hair or eyes, or
else she has a "wonderful" talent for
something.?New York Press.
The Absent Jim.
The lines! Tin* lines! I moot the lines,
Hut I don't mert Jlin!
I meet the men of Sevon I'ines,
But 1 don't in of* t Jim!
I meet the men that Lincoln knew.
Tin* silvered men that wore the blue?
In Shenandoah, Sumter, too?
But I don't meet Jim!
The drums! The drums! 1 hoar the drums.
Hut I don't hear Jim!
I hear the foet?tlie column comes?
Hut I don't h<>jir Jim!
An army moves, the march course clears;
The forward guard, the column noars;
I hear the tramp, the calls, the chccrs?
But 1 don't hear Jim!
The IIbrk! The llajis! 1 see the Hags,
llut 1 don't sco Jim!
I see tin- prUo of ehorlshod rajjs.
Hut I don't see Jim!
The furthvr lines are movlns fast.
Soon the martial stop* ore past,
I see thcin even to the lastBut
I don'I *eo Jim!
