RUSSELL'S PRECINCT st 4 O'CLOCK Notice! A meeting of the Democratic Suh Committee ? f l?attletown District is call r Thursday. A.Ug. 80th, at IS m.. at mv ? ? - s cf organization. Blackbc hn Smith The large amount of local news this week exclude from our columns a jjreat deal of editorial and general news matter, which we would liked to have published in this issue. We always give preference to local hap? penings, as we believe our readers are like us?prefer local news. In China, since the occupation of D bv the allies, there are many rumors al'oat about serious compli? cations and contentions among the powers. It is said that Kussia, Ger? many and Japan will join hands and fight the difficulty with the Chinese to a finish and have asked United States and England to withdraw. Tuesday papers say that a big battle has been fought at P?kin, the allies suffering a repulse and losing 1,800 men. This news is unconfirmed. In political circles there seems. to be a widespread flopping over to Bryan on the -juestion of Imperial? ism of many prominent republicans and gold democrats, comparing with the desertion of the democratic ranks in 1896 for McKinley. Keep this ouestion before the people; the more vils are ventilated the more re? cruits that will come into the dem? ocratic ranks. Mr, Bryan accepted the populist nomination in a speech declaring that enimies of republi? canism should unite. Stevenson has Deen named by the populist execu? tive committee for Yice-Preeident, . Towne having refused to ac? cept said nomination. Representative Kichardaon, chair? man of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, has prepared for publication a few of the reasons why the "plain people" are not in? clined to meekly aocept the inspired statements of trust organs and speak? ers, showing what a natural necessary and beniGcent institution the trust is. Here they are: "It requires 50 per cent, more wheat to buy a stove than it did in 1896. It requires twenty bushels more corn tu huy a wagon than it did in 18'JC. "It requires 100 per cent, more corn or wheat to buy a copper kettle than in "It requirea twice as muchcorn to buy a coil of rope as in 1*996. "It reijuires 40 per cent, more grain to buy a plow than iu in 1896. "It retjuires 75 per cent, more grain to buy a hot. a rake, or a shovel than in 1896. "A set of comuionwheels that cost $7 in 1H90 now cost twelve "The pries of cultivators and other farm implements have gone up propor? tionately. "tialyanized barbed wire costa from $1 to ??4.50 per hundred more than in "It requires 40 per cent, more corn or cotton to buy a pound of sugar than in "You have to pay GO per cent, more fur l'Ihs.s than in 1?896. freight rates have climbed back to the exorhitant figures which caused a popular revolt in legislation a few years ago. The price ol oil, coal, lumber, tools, and hardware has gone up from 40 to 10!? per cent. And all these things have been done by trusts. trust robs you waking or sleeping, eating or drinking, working or playing, living oi dying, and the Coffin Trust get* you in the end." The Liberty Congress of the Na? tional Anti-Imperialist League last week adopted resolutions advising its members and sympathizers to "sup? port Mr. Bryan as the most effeotive means of crushing imperialism." The administration of Mr. McKinley was denounced for its course in Porto Kioo aud the Philippines, and it was agreed to push the tight earnestly against the Republican candidates for Congress as well as against the Pres? idential ticket. The members of this league are mostly Republicans, some of them of prominence, and their ac? tion is ft a?rions mrtter. The Prioeof Wheat Several dajs ago Secretary of Ag? riculture Wilson expressed the be? lief that wheat would go up to $1 per bushel by the end of the year, basing his opinion on the crop reports, which indicate a shortage of 100,000,000 bushels, as compared with the yield of 180'.?. Since then the statistical bureau of the Agri? cultural Department has supplied further data which conveys interest? ing information about the crop con? ditions abroad and reveal a state of affairs with respect of wheat whioh tends to insure a continuance of ad? vanced values. Accordiug to the departmental bulletin, the crop iu the couutries of the Southern Hemisphere, including Argentina, Chile and Australia, will fail 10,000 bushels below last year. In portions of India including Ben? gal, the Northwe6t provinces and Punjab, more thau an averaged crop has been gathered, but for the Em? pire as a whole the production amounts to only 182,582,000 bushels, ?gainai I 00 in 1899 and au annual average of 826,456,000 bushels for the proceeding live years, indica? tions also ?how that the Kusbian crop will fall below the average, while Germany will harvest some? what above the usual output. The rest of Kurope will have about au average yield, with i he exceptiou of Great Britain, where a deficiency of 9,500,000 Winchester bushels is no? ted. Mexico had an abundant crop and Manitoba a poor one. These returns show that outside of the United States the shortage, as compared with last year, will amount to about 80,000,000 bushels, ad? ding this quantity to the deficiency in this country, we obtain the formi dabfe total of 180,000,000. This is equal to almost one-third of an average American crop, and should have a pronounced effect upon prices. Th wheat-growing farmer there fore, will hardly make a mistake if he holds out for an advance on the amount he has been receiving.--Bal? timore Herald. Boers Still Worrying Roberts. Impatience and irritation over the long delay in reducing the Transvaal to subjection," states the Philadel? phia Record, "have led the British public to indulge in some harsh crit? icism of Lord Roberts. But there was uo good reason to suppose that the war in South Africa would end with the overrunning of the Free State and the taking of Pretoria. "The most active and tireless en? emies of British power?the Trans? vaal Boers?are still unsubdued, aud are possessed of unexpected resources in men and munitions of war. They have 8,000 troopps at, Machadodorp, on the Delagoa Bay Railroad, and have concentrated at this point their entire equipment of heavy artillery. If this is to be the Boers' last stand they have certainly given Ixml Rob? erts a problem extremelv difficult of solution. It is very doubtful wheth? er the British commander could spare from his widely scattered forces an army sufficient to cope with the last forlorn hope of the Boers.'' The second annual exhibition of the Warrenton Horse Show Associa? tion will take place Sept. 5 and 0. An Akron, Ohio, mob to satisfy its passion for a negro fiend's blood for outraging a small white girl, wrecked the city hall, killed two men, and destroyed $200,000 of property. Senator Tillman and the preachers of South Carolina are having a bit? ter personal fight oyer the liquor question. Fourteen anarchists from Italy are in jail in New York, charged with conspiracy to assassinate President McKinley. Maj. John W\ Daniel will open the campaigu in Luray on October 13th with a speech on the issues now before the people. Commercial relations between the United States and Spain are now ful? ly restored, and the current year, it is thought, will be a record breaker for trade. Robt. F. Leedy, a leading stump orator in this section for McKinley in 1896, has joined the democrats in their fight against the republicans on the issue of imperialism. He will take the stump for Bryan. John J. Valentine, of the Wells Fargo Express Company and a prom? inent republican on the Pacific, coast is out for Bryan. Former Congressman Perry Bel mont, of New York, who four years ago was an ardent supporter of Palmer and Buckner, has declared himself for Bryan. Edward M. Shepard, an emi? nent lawyer and leader of the gold democrats of Brooklyn, has formerly re-entered the democratic fold, making an emphatic announcement of his determination to vote for Bryan. Dr. Henry Wade Rodgers, former? ly President of Northwestern Uni? versity at Chicago and recently called by the faculty of Yale, says he will vote for Bryan and Stevenson. In 1896 he voted for McKinley and Hobart. Dr. Rodgers is astaunoh anti-imperalist. After a turbulent convention at New? port News, the Second district demo? crats nominated Harry L. Maynard, of Portsmouth, on the sixth ballot. There were five candidates for the nomination, and some hard words were passed before it was made. Good feeling prevailed after the con? vention adjourned. I Reunion of the Clarke Oavalry For the 17th time the gallant I of that fearless band of Cavalry, that left Clarke's borders to fight for stitutional liberty in the war-clouded days of 60, gathered together to tell again of that struggle, of which all ( glory is theirs, and cement str< and firmer the bonds of brother] This year they were entertain? : true royal styio by Mr. A Moore.
