Candidate Not Honest. , I Will, however, before coming to the main purpose of my address, turn aside to inquire of the good, people %vho heard Mr. Bryan in the state of West VJrglnia whether or not In .their judg-mcnt, he is an honest occupant of the presidential platform upon which he now stands. In JSS6 he charged the . Gold Democrats with being traitors and scoundrels and dishonest m?n and demanded that they should never , be permitted to re-enter the" .Democratic party except as private citizens in the rear rank ar.d should be compelled to take back seats and all th&t soft of twaddle. This was done rfrom. one end of the United States to. th^ other, arid It is a little strange that some of these Independent, high?tonedr Go.ld ' Democrats are creeping back fawnlrigly un der the lash that they felt the sting* of four years ago and now art seeking favors et .the hands of the man who lashed them. May it not be that some of thrm nt Inouf *??> ? ? -1 ,L~1 the back sauts to which their own j . party has related them are becoming ! a'little uncomfortable and that they ar? , Willing to sacrifice even the question of the gold standard If forsooth they can receive forgiveness at the hands of the great high priest of niDdern Democ- 1 racy? Has Mr. Bryun said in one of his 1 speeches recently a word about the free 1 and unlimited coinage of silver? Has 1 he told-(he people .of the United Statas 1 what position he will take if - he Is \ elected? He Is challenged by one of the ' greatest newspapers In the United 1 States, the New York Herald, to pay * whether or not, if he is elected President, he will seek to overthrow the 1 gold standard and pay the? maturing < bonds of the government in silver, and * he refuses to answer/ 5 Outcome Will be a Silver Standard. ] \ Any careful student of the conditions < In the Congress of the United States 3 knows that despite all the talk that has j . had Its origin In the Independent and j mugwump papers of the country, if i Bryan is elected President, he will 1 have a house of representatives with \ him In favor of the free and unlimited < coinage of silver.

Respects Paid to Schurz. Mr. Carl Scfcuix, whose value has been so estimated this year as to flnfllt Impossible for'him to,be retained lh the Republican service against Bryan as tie was four years ago, has now adjustid the consideration In such a way that lie says It Is an easy matter. "If Bryan Is elected, all we have to do Is for the expiring Congress, the present Congress, to pass laws which will present Mr. Bryan from, doing uny damage." This Is the Illustrious lo?;ic of an Illustrious man, who has been Illusnlous In so many different shapes that [he kaleidoscope is put to blush -whenL-vei his name la mentioned, and further than that these mugwump papers ire claiming that "there can be no iarm In electing Bryan as you have put It out of his power to do any damlge. Let him be President. Ho Is all vrong In politics. Every position he has aken Is wrong, but do not deprive him >f the ofllce because a patriotic RepubIcan .Congress and the magnificent administration of "William McKlnlev have .a ken the teeth out of the viper, have Irawn his fangs and there Is no poison there now. He is Incnpable of projector poteoii Into the body politic. Let ilm-have the presidency ns a play,hlng and hedge him in and protect the ;overnment against the hopeless polcics that he has announced." Of nil he silly logic ever heard this is the silliest. Now let us sec about these prophetic l^claratlons. In 1S9C both parties recjgnlzed that the country was in a deferable condition. I am not goin? into Istatts about this, because it would veary your patience and It Is of so late iccurrence that you -will remember It Millions Were Idle. Two million men were Idle In the Tnited States. It Is laid, and they were die because there was nothing to do. Chey were not striking ,for higher vases. "We do not have strikes in Democratic times. When the Democrat c party is in power the laboring man strikes for the first Job he can .get and lover inquires about wages, If per'hunce the salary will feed his wife and lift children and* himself.

If he hopes ;to have his statement >ellived. Prices had 'fallen. Some lewspaper the other day challenged :he-statement of someone. I do not re-. Tiember who it was. u*ho said that the lepreclatlon in priccs in 1896 from the ncomlng of the Democratic admlnis,ration had aggregated a greater sum if money than th* cost of the Itebellon. The paper said It could not be proved nnd of course it cannot be ptov?d and demonstrated, but let me refer .0 a few figures. Let us take the prcs;nt prices as the true basis and then ake the crisis of 1S96 and let us see. Property Increased in Value. The total valuation of property In the [Jnlted States Is something enormous ind there was not a dollar's worth of Lhat property, there Is not a dollar's .vorth of It to-day that Is not worth at east twenty-flve-per cent more in the r.arket than it was In 1S9G. Go right nto an analysis. Take all the farm products of the country and they imount to a sum that is stupendous, rake the cattle, the horses, the sheep. Lhe hogs, take the farm produce <ll,. mllltnn,. mill. ons and the hundreds of millions of nere milk, eggs, butter, cheese and poultry of the country and you may, ivith absolute safety, add to it 25 por jent as the difference between the prices in 1S9(> and the prices to-day. Add 25 per cent to the cash value- of Die farms of the country and of every 'oot of real estate outside of the cities ind a larger per cent within many of the cities and the difference, between the value of property in 1S9G and tfie inlue of property in 1900 is astonishing. That depreciation all occurred between 1S92 and 1606.. We had very 5<jod times in 1S92 when the country fell nto the hands of the Democratic party. Let me put this my way and let us see f Mr. Bryan shall be permitted to ineer at our claim of prosperity. Let me put It my way. Did we not have Tood, times in 1892? Did we not have the exact legislative conditions In 1S92 Lhat we bod in 1S3C, with the exception 3f on.' or two unimportant matters of, legislation and excepting the detrimental legislation.of tha Democratic party. Start this way. The conditions of 1892 ivere favorable more so than thev hnd jver b?on before In tho history of the United States. Start there as the basis Df your calculations. Destroyed Protection to Labor. The Democratic party struck at and destroyed the great principle of protection to American labor and American industry and to American capital In the passage of the Wilson bill. The passage of that bill destroyed the conlldence of the people of the country ;ind destroyed the mrtin market of the .ountry. opened the. doors, of our ports to the products of the cheap labor of foreign countries and almost Instantly upon the advent of the Cleveland administration prices began to tumble. Why spend time over it. Everybody knows it. Everybody understands it. N'ohody can contradict ft. What did it? Vou, my Democratic friend, was in control; You controlled the government. Vou did the legislating. You witnessed Lhc fall of the temple, you witnessed the crumbling of the walls, you heard til ' crash of the dome, you listened to the shrieks of the victims. What caused It? It certainly was not tjie Republican party. It was nothing they had lone. It was the deadly blow struck by the election of the Democratic party to power In all the branches of the government. legislative and executive. To deny it is to put yourself In a position where nobody on earth will ever have conlldenca In you. Now, again. - In the campaign of IS9G Lhe Democrats said that the only great Issue was the free and unlimited colnnge of silver. If the free ami unlimited coinage of silver wns'demanded in 18911. It In demanded now. If the free and unlimited coinage of silver was the light thing In 183G. then It Is the right fhin;,' now. If Jt was wise and palrlotie In 1S0G, then It Is the proper thing to lemand tho free and unlimited coinage t)f silver now of Mr. llryan If he gets Into power, and he cannot shirk that [dalii duty. Prosperity Flows Lika a IUvcr. What has happened? And then 1 am through with this branch. [icrity Hows like a river. It Is not ivorth while for Mr. llryan to coma inatlng here. Ho comes before an Intelligent-audlence-here In rtirkersburp ind tells them that there is no pronl?rity: iliat prosperity Is a sham. Let an see what ho said, and I am going to Iflv- full tjuico to one of the most conJlualyo articles I have over seen written upon this subject. .

Bryan, even though their coming discredits hl*<lStf forecast. In one or more oi his recent speeches Mr. Br^ffn has said to the wase-workers: "I wan; you to take the c(>3t of what you bay jik a laboring man and measure it against your WUKCjt, and sec if the trusts have no I rained the price of what you buy more than they have your wages." A Hi sky Challenge. That Wis a risky challenge, for the tacts were and are at hand to prove that the worklngmen have been pru^perou . *lnce 1SSS beyond precedent. 'fne Nov.* \ork Prcrs fhowH that the workmymen in iu?l. measuring the cost of what they bought against their wages, earned :>o much less than they had to spend.to keep from going hungry that they ate up nut omy all their wage earnings, out more thu i wr.Mi.lvj ot their ravings bank deposits; that lrom l?fl to ltt?4 the wiigeworker. were* paying so much more lor their bread and butter than they wire able to earn in v/agos that * they were coin nulled to diminish tholr . ?a\U\gM bank deposit* from to The Press lurcher submits that since the defeat of Mr. Urym In 1S9C the wage-earners ol this country have earned 20 much more than they spent? that Is to say. to use Mr. Bryan's expression, measuring the coat of want they have bought against their wages, they are so much better off?that In 1S95 they had Increased their savings banks deposits to ?.',?0.339.954. That was a sain !n surplus earnings put In savings banks alone of more than JISO.OW.OOO over 1894. And. a-s IT all these sockdologers were not enough, the PresJj shows that the returns from New York and other states thus far received for the year ended June 30, 1990, indicate that the total savings banks deposits .to-day are more than J2.000.000.nc0. That, says the Press, means Instead of a loss of $31,000,000 a year, such as the wageearners suffered In their savings in 1J>34, a gain since then of more than three-quartbra of a billion of dollars. All that Is In addition to the expenditure of many millions expended In buying homes, cancelling mortgages. Investments in building and loan assbclatloiM and other properties ?all that J750.000.0ffi In savings banks alone since 1VM. The Preys says this "means ibal the wage-earners of the United States, measuring the cost of \yhat they buy .against their wages, have not only a large surplus of wage earnings now. but arc drawing in dividends on the ?!,SQ0.'ft},OuO which they have put In the savings banks ?are drawing In addition to their wages Interest dividends of more than $75,000,000 a. year. Times Better Than Ever Known. Property has more than regained the position from which ll fell in 18'JU. and I will put it in round number?. There Is not a man In the United States who. can road and write, and. who has a fair comprehension of the events that are transpiring around him but what knows and perfectly understands; First, thut the times, a popular expression for prosperity In the United States, have been better during the past year than ever before In the history of the United States. -Second, that every particle of that increase in'chat prosperity has been due to two great factors, 10sslbllities created by legislation and confidence in the stability of conditions. A pretty plain straightforward question la presented to the people .of the country, which do you like better," the times of 1S9U or the times of 1900? It is not worth while discussing it. Every one knows that the times of 1896 were tiie legitimate and logical and necessary result of Democratic administration, and every one of you know that the the re the planting of the feet of our financial and commercial enterprises solidly upon the platform of the geld standard gavu that confidence, ani; made those posclbllltleH out of which this prosperity has grown. So It Is a straightforward issue, presented ax clearly and definitely as It Is possible, and -Mr. Bryan is the loplcal exponent of the one condition, tlyit of 1SH6, and Mr. McKlnley Is the exponent and promoter and high mlest of the conditions of 1UOO. Now "Choose ye whom ye will serve." If Republicanism Is prosperity, serve that; tf the liaal of Democracy Is the open door (o prosperity, ent'?r and serve that. Question of Trusts. General Grosvenor discussed briefly the question of trusts, and' pointed out and furnished evidence to prove that the only legislation ever ..enacted by Congress In the interest of the people and against trusts was enuetcd by a Republican Congress, signed by a Republican President and enforced by a Ilepubllcnn administration, and charged that the cry of "trusts," whether made by James K. Jones, of the "Cotton Compress Trust," or Richard Croker. of the great "Ice Trust," were hypocritical cries to cover up their own conduct and their own deficiency of duty. ml- <UPUUH2<<MI ai nome icngtn tno qui???Hon nC Imperialism, following ulong the 1 line of argument which dcclureM ihnt 1 there enn bo no such thing *nn lmp.?rlallnm in the United State*. lie w\ld that In the acquisition of the Philip- " rlrios and In the iicqulflJtlon of other t territory by tho United Statcw We had \ followed the precedents of the government fromthe beginning.

TOPICS OF THE SCHOOLS. The schools opened on Tuesday, Seplember 4, with a full attendance. The joys and girls all seem glad to be back igain, after their two roontlm of romp aid play. Belter work should be done 'xom the fact that they are a year older han when last year's work began and lence more capable of doing work. They also realize more fully why they jo to school and thus are better able to itudy since they see In some degree at east the use of study. One of the most mportant duties of the teacher Is to ead thle boys and girls Into the habit if thinking for themselves. When this s accomplished their education Is an accomplished fact, for they will not rest intll they acquire at least enough knowledge to prepare them for their ife work. The parent and the teacher ire the factors that are to work out the :hild's salvation, and it will be well for hem to work together to this end. During these political times, it is dlfIcult to manage the average.boy. His nind is so full of party patriotism that le boils over. He is generally covered ill over with badges, and he thinks hat the salvation of the country de!3nds on hfs hurrahing for his favorite andidate. Now, what is to be done rlth him? Simply Just let him effervesce. It will do him good, and do no larm to anyone. The wise teacher can ;ivo much good instruction just now hat cannot be so well imparted at any ither time. Especially can this be done n civil government As our President s to be elected the manner of his eleclon can be so fixed on the mind of the )uplls that It will never be forgotten. These special opportunities must not be icglected by the teacher. Remember, ve are trying to train our boys and ;lrls for good citizenship. Do not alow such opportunities to pass unlmjroved. Prof. J. B. McClure, principal of the )ubllc schools of Dingess, Mingo couny, was a visitor at Ritchie school on Thursday of last week, spending nlnost the entire day at the two buildngs. Mr* McClure Is a teacher of more ban ordinary ability and Is a very uccessful Institute Instructor. Under ifs management the school of Dingess s lUKing ironi ruun. uiuuug iuc >???jressive schools in the southern portion if our great commonwealth. Rev. F. "W. E. Peschau, of Mlamlsjurg, Ohio, was a visitor at the Eighth .vard school on Friday of last week and ts he always does, he gave pleasant alks to the'pupils of quite a number of he rooms. His talk in the grammar oom was full of good things, well said, ind the boys and girls gave him quite in ovation at its close. Dr. Peschau 'istts the school once every year and ome years oftencr. His visits are alvays enjoyed by both teachers and puitls. Come again, Doctor, the latch itrlng is always out. Such-talks as he rave on Friday, cannot fail to be an iniplration to the pupils for better work. If more such men would visit the schools and speak word3 of encouragement to teachers and pupils, It would >e well. Such treats do all concerned ;reat good. Quite a number of parents are sendng their children to private schools isfora they wave passed through even >ur ward schools, 1. e., before they are ?repareu to enier im puDiic JUgn | school. This is surely a mistake. J While \ve have just as good private schools as are to be found anywhere, it s surely a mistaken idea to take pupils from the fifth or sixth grades ahd send them to those schools. In conversation with the principal of one of these ichools. the writer was made to underitand that he would much rather have >oys that had entered the high school ind had spent several years there. Barents would do well to consider this natter. For good reasons, doubtless, the Wheeling public schools, with the ex:eption of Ritchie schol, have no exilb!ts at the state fair this year. The lisplay from Ritchie school with one jxceptlon, is taken from the daily work )f the school and shows just what the wpils are doinc in drawing language ,vork kindergurten work, etc. It mny >e some little trouble to the teacher to >repnre this work for a display at the air, but the teachers seem willing to Ic it and the writer is sure that the uplls knowing that some of their vork will be an exhibition is an inspiration to do better work than they othirwisc would have been done. So the rouble will not be In vain. At the meeting of the principals on Thursday afternoon of last week, several topics ?if interest to the schools vere discussed, one of the most iro ortant being that of pupils falling to >e promoted at the end of the year. The principals were urged to keep par;nts posted all along during the year is to the danger of this happening. The ittention of parents Is culled to the fact hat every two months a report of ihe Handing of the pupil is sent homo for he parent to sign and return. If the ?arents will carefully examine this re)ort they can see just how the pupil itands. It may seem strange, but It' Is rue, that many parents sign "these, re>orts and return them without even loMclng whether the pupil has the remired grade. This ought not to be so. f the parents throughout the city will rarefully examine thesa reports, there vlll be fewer surprises when the pupils mi 10 pose. ana Indeed, there win lie ever who will tall to make the reWired urnile to pans, Toacheru nn.l la'enta nhoulil heartily co-operate in lib1 matter.
