THE STENCH OF THE CHEEK
May be a Thing of the Past if the Efforts
of Dr. Henderson, of Fulton,
Prove of Any Avail.
The efforts of Dr. Henderson, health
officer of the town of Fulton, in behalf
of obtaining support from the state
board of health In relieving the cltizons
of Fulton and the eastern portion of
the Fourth ward, of the stench of the
creek and fertilizing: plant, may be
crowned with success, as the following
letter will show:
Wheeling. W. Va., Oct. 1G, 1900.
Dr. Henderson, Health Ofllcor, Fulton.
MY DEAR DOCTOR:?I have ai letter
from Dr. A. R. Ilarbee, secretary of tho
state board of hculth. In relation to your
fertilizing plants. He says that the
county court, prosecuting attorney and
county board of hculth have full authority
to abate theso nuisances and cites section
20 b, and 20 c, of tho code of 1S00, which
arc found on page 387. I doubt if these
apply to your case, but think this does.
Sec. 2S, p. 4ia says: "The council of such
city, town or village shall have power to
abate or cause to be abated anything
which, in the opinion of a majority of tho
whole council, shall be a nuisance."
Dr. Barbee says that the state board
will be in session here November 14 and
17. and if their attention Is called tcf this
matter, they will be glad to lend their aid.
Very sincerely.

CONVINCING
REPUBLICAN
ELOQUENCE
(Continued From First Page).
thority was the divesting power. "What
was the divesting power to do? The Instant
the Paris treaty was ratified the
uuuiuruy over me irniuppines was invested
In the United States. Invested
how? For our own selfish ends? No!
What were we to do? The only motive
that guides us Is human liberty. (Applause.)
"Should we abandon control of these
Islands? Permit them to become reft
with.Internal strife? Wasn't It better
to protect them and teach them how to
enjoy civic liberty? There was an Insurrection
there and we had to put It to
an end. Mr. Bryan says ho would bring
it to an end by turning the government
over to the insurgents and back them
up in their efforts. The Philippine insurgents
represc-nt a small minority
of the. Inhabitants of the Island. If we
follow out Mr. Bryan we would be doing
the/very thing that he objects to,
ruling the majority by the minority.
"We are In the Philippines to give
them self government. William McKloley
says that himself. The only way
you can Judge a man's Intention Is by
taking what he says. Mr. Bryan says
the Insurrection must bo quelled. The
Republicans say they will give them
self government. The Republican party
Is tho party of freedom. It Is the
party that was called Into existence
when the Whig party failed to meet
the Issue. It Is the party whose very
being resulted In the advance of human
liberty. The Republicans find added
reputation In the Imputation of imperialism.
Our flag waves not as the symbol
of imperialism. It waves there as It
does here, the fiag of home, of liberty,
of civilization. The only question Is the
manner of procedure In these Islands.
Sober, Calm McKinley.
"The calm., sober statements, of Mr.
McKlnley have got to be taken an final
until proven wrong. They must be taken
as the honest and honorable statements
of the Hepubllcan party. (Applause.)
In a month and a half Mr.
Bryan hasn't touched the money question.
Will he pay the national debt In
silver? If he will not he Is a qulverer
and Is false to his platform. If he was
right In 1896 why doeBn't his party follow
him?
"The Republican party puts this, the
one whole thing of Imperialism. They
stand as they did from '61 to '6.". They
stand as then on this question, and
they wont try to avoid It. "
Mr. Maher was applauded for fully
five minutes when ne took his seat, and
It was some time before the chairman
could be heard to announce the next
speaker. W.hen he Introduced Hon. W.
D. Bynum, he was vigorously applauded.'
Hon. W. D. Bynum. ^
Mr. Bynum began by saying that
most of his life had been spent In rendering
service to the Democratic party.
"In 1896 I Joined, In common with some
of your fellow townsmen, the sound
money forces. Jn doing this I thought I
could do better service for my country.
I want to say to you that the prosperity
and welfare depend on the election of
William McKinley. (Applause and
cheers.)
"The Democratic party, comes before
the people of this country with great
and new Issues, they say. The trouble
at Kansas City was whether they
should reiterate the 10 to 1 policy In
that platform. They telegraphed to
Mr; Bryan and he settled It. They reaffirmed
the Issues of the Chicago plat;
form and then suddenly discovered the
fact that Imperialism was paramount.
( A nnlniici. \
"What's going to happen to you Is
the-paramount Issue of this campaign.
Why was imperialism brought Into this
campaign? Why, simply with the purpose
of muddling the issues so that
Mr. Bryan can appear as a consistent
candidate for the presidency. The
Democratic party hurried this war on
President McKlnley before he was
ready for war. He said we ought to
have a little powder anyway. (Laughter
and applause.)
"The Democrats said McKlnley was
a coward and traitor for not declaring
war. The ratification of the Paris
treaty depended on a three-fourths
vote In the senate. Seventeen Democrats.
silver Republicans and Populists
voted for It. Mr. Bryan hurried to
Washington and was responsible for the
ratification of that treaty The constitution
of the United States requires of
the President the upholding In the
Philippines Just as much as it was the
duty of Abraham Lincoln to quell the
Insurrection In the United States.
(Cheers.)
Bryan's Excuse.
"What excuse does Mr. Bryan give
for his part in the ratification of the
treaty? He labored to put the President
in a very delicate position. If he
failed to uphold the sovereignty of the
United States In the Philippines he
would charge him with cowardice. You
all know how he now charges him
with Imperialism for upholding the liag
there.
"Not In a single Instnnce were the
people consulted In acquiring territory
of the United States. In Louisiana arbitrary
government was established.
The President appointed the governor
and the court. The same was the case
In Florida. Andrew Jackson was sent
government was established before the
treaty of cession was signed.
"What is proposed In regard to tho
Philippines. "Why, It la not known
what wo are going to do. We will give
them a government as soon as they are
capable. It may bo fifty or more years,
but the United States will take excellent
care of them In the meantime.
This question lied entirely In your
hands. Imperialism comes by all tho
power becoming centered In the general
government. Mr. Bryan advocates
this to-day In government ownership.
So long as the people have been true to
themselves, true to their liberties and
their rights, just so long will we need
to not fear Imperialism. (Applause.)
"Now, I will take up the trusts.
They are not of recent origin. The
Democratic party knows full well th^t
tho laws on tho statute books exhausts
all federal power and nil the Democrats
say is not worth the paper It Is
written upon. Commerco Is not production;
It Is transportation. Therefore
no manufacturer can be engaged
In Inter-state commerce. We never
want to see tho time when the federal
rnvernniont rMMcr Itn nosn In nrlvntf*
business. We don't want that.
Constitutional Amendments.
"Mr. Bryan said we'll have a constitutional
amendment. The whole Republican
party took him at his word
and endeavored to paHa a law and the
Democrats defeated It. Neither party
Is In favor of trusts.. I think that
every Democrat and every Republican.
If he Rot any watered stock, would
pocket It In a hurry. (Laughter nnd
applause.)
Mr. Bynum then told of tho number
of prominent Democrats who hold trust
slock. "Chairman Jones, of the Democratic
party, when asked about the
trust In which he Is Interested, replied
that that was his business. That was
what all men said?It Is their own
business. Mr. Croker and many other
Tammanyltes have their pockets full of
Ice trust stock.
"What Is tho real Issue? You arc Interested
In upholding and maintaining
the conditions of prosperity that have
blessed this country for the past four
ytaru. (Cheers.)
"I don't believe In taking chances,"
said Mr. Bynum, "especially In politics.
I want to embalm, cremate and bury
Bryan. (Cheers.) Mr. Bryan Isn't advocating
and teaching Democracy when
he opposes the ^old standard. In 1792,
when Congress first established a coinage'law,
they coined one ounce of gold
with fifteen ounces of silver. They
found that one ounce of gold was worth
fifteen and uife-half ounces of silver
and the consaquences were that when
gold went out of the country an ounce
of ROld would bring fifteen and onehalf
ounces of silver. This went on until
1821, when a Democratic committee !
of Congress reported that It was Inconvenient
to have a double standard
and that It was In come cases absolutely
necessary/lo have a single standard, i
Congress didn't do anything. It wtnt
' until 1328, when gold went up to a pre- |
mlum of. 5 per cent. Andrew Jackson |
was elected and his secretary reported
fhn* If tt-na rtlfT.nuH tn mnlntnln ctntiil. I
nrds of cllfff*r?!nt material and advocating
a single standard; He said the metalu
were constantly fluctuating and
that we could safely maintain one
standard In fact, was self-evident.
Would Debase Our Currency.
"The Democratic party would debase
our coin by making a flfty-three
cent dollar worth an honest one hundred
cent gold dollar." The speaker
gave a history of our monetary system
from Its Inception until the present day
and told how the Democratic party had
changed Its Ideas on the subject. He
read many reports of congressional
committee reports on the subject from
time to time, all of them telling of the
necessity of making a single standard,
and all others subservant to It.
"Mr. Bryan don't know the history of
the Democratic party. He evidently
thinks ha is Jefferson and Jackson and
now ha tails us ho is Lincoln. (Laughter.)
We care not what the' character
of our money Is, we've got to trade
by the gold standard. We don't object
to copper, silver or nickel, but all we
say Is that If this government makes a
coin and stamps It a dollar, It must bo
a dollar. (Applause.) You can't transport
these metals side by sldw without
one coin doing all the business.
"There cannot be any fluctuation If
your standard Is gold, because thnt Is
the world's standard and one piece of
gold will have the same relative value
to another piece of gold. Mexico Is on
the gold standard, notwithstanding
they have had nothing but the free
coinage of silver for 250 years. It Is the
greatest silver producing country In
the world.
"Wo have twice over what Mexico has
In silver circulation. They have only
54 per capita and we have {0 per capita
silver In circulation. The moment you
force silver out of circulation It would
sink down to Its bullion value. It Is
a commodity. It becomes an article of
commerce and you cannot tell how
much you are going to have. We care
not how much we coin.
Results of Free Coinage.
"Do we think we could by our own
force, open our mints to the free coinage
of sliver? Suppose sliver would
go up? We could go down to Mexico,
and with one dollar and get
two dollars. You could bring
them back and have them coined Into
good American coin. Don't you think
the Mexicans would soon get onto that
scheme. You know full well that a
product must pay all Its expenses. We
were on a gold standard during the
civil war. We did business with paper
money. Our paper money was down as
low as fifty-three cents on a dollar.
The Republican party wants that whenever
the worklngman steps up to by a
loaf a bread he wants it always the
same size. He don't want It to fluctuate
with silver. (Applause.)
"It Is estimated' that to-day $1 performs
the functions of $1,000 forty or
flfty years ago.
"I was taught In my younger days,"
continued Mr. Bynum, "to hate the national
banks. I want to say rlfrht here
and they say an open confession Is
good for the roul, that the national
bank system Is the best In the world.
Wc cannot get along without the bank."
Mr. Bynum was heartily cheered
wucu lie cioseu.
A DETERMINED WOMAN
Finally Found a Food That Cured
Her.
"When I first read of the remarkable
effects of Grape-Nuts food, I determined
to secure some," says Mrs. C. W.
Aldrldge. of Salisbury, Mo. "At that
time there was none kept In this town,
but my husband ordered some from a
Chicago traveler.
f'l had been greatly afflicted with
sudden attacks of cramps, nausea, and
vomiting". Tried all sorts of remedies
and physicians, but obtained only temporary
relief. As soon ns I began to
use the new food the cramps disappearand
have never reappeared.
"My old attacks of sick stomach were
a little slower to yield, but by continuing
the food, that trouble has disappeared
entirely. I am to-day perfectly
well, can eat anything an everything I
wish, without paying the penalty that I
used to. Wo could not, and would not,
keep house without Grape-Nuts.'
"My husband was so delighted with
the benefits I received that he has been
recommending Grape-Nuts to his customers
and has built up a very large
trade In the food. He sells them by the
case to most of the leading physicians
of the county, who prescribe GrapeNuts
very generally. There is some
satisfaction In using a really scientifically
prepared food."
