Secondly, not a family In all this land but what had In some way fend at some time received medical at tention from the hand of Dr. Crosss, and of course he was universally admired and loved by the people who assembled at the First Methodist Episcopal church, south, on yesterday to pay a last tribute of re spect to a departed friend and neighbor.

DEVOID OF PERSONALITIES Mr. Bankhead Stole the Gold Bug Thunder and Used it Against Them With Tell ing Effect. Montgomery, Oct. 18.—(Special.)—Sev eral hundred people, composing a highly intelligent audience, listened to the de bate tonight between Congressmen Bankhead and Clarke on the financial question. It was-throughout a dignified discussion, and while it was necessarily a fraction prosaic it was listened to with interest. Mr. Bankhead spoke first for an hour. He made an interesting and in some respects an unique argument in favor of free coinage. He left the beaten track and sprang some new propositions on the boys. For instance he laid great stress on the proposition that supply and demand established values. The gold bugs winked at each other and whispered that the speaker was stealing their thun der, but the congressman proceeded to say that the value of money, like every thing else, was regulated by supply and demand, and the demand for silver money in this country was sufficient to give a value at his ratio equal to gold. He made these statements and dared the gold-bugs to deny them: That there was not a single gold standard country on the globe in which agriculture and man ufacturing prospered, and not a double standard country in which both did not thrive: that there was not a truly bi metallic country on the globe, the silver coin's of which would not circulate equal ly with gold In this or any other country. He denied that Mexico was a bimetallic country. *■ Alr.Clarke made strictly a single stand ard speech. Of course it was an able one of its kind. The speaker followed close in Mr. Herbert's track, and many thought that his was the abler statement of the sound money theory. Opinion differed as to this, however. Mr. Bankhead closed in a half hour re ply to Mr. Clarke. The audience and the applause appeared to be about evenly divided. Both speeches were dispassion ate and devoid of personalities.

London, Oct. 18.—Lord Roseberry made his first political Appearance since "a short time prior to the recent general election by formally opening a new lib eral club at Scarborough this morning. In his address the ex-premier said the principal surprise at the last election was the gullabllity of the electoral. The con servatives had promised to find employ ment for the unemployed, to give pen sions to those who were unwilling to work and moke a pint pot hold a quart. That such promises should have been successful after 9. quarter of a century of compulsory education in the United Kingdom he regarded as most disap pointing.

SUN’S COTTON REVIEW Now York, Oct. 18.—The Sun's cotton review says: Cotton ended 16 to 17 points lower after a very irregular speculation, with sales of 367,780 bales. Liverpool opened 4 points higher, but lost this and closed 1 point lower for the day; spot sales 12,000 bales. At one time New York was 19 points lower, but it rallied later. In Manchester yarns were quiet, but steady; cloths were dull. The New Orleans receipts tomorrow are estimated at 12,000 to 14,000 bales, against 17r0:i4 bales last Saturday. Spot cotton here was quiet at 1-I6c de cline with sales of 283 bales for spinning. The southern markets were unchanged. Today's features: Prices broke on heavy liquidating sales. Liverpool closed lower, and the outlook for Manchester's business was declared to be unfavorable. New Orleans sold here and so did the south generally. Liverpool sold to some extent. The receipts at the interior towns were larger than has been expected. The Interior stocks increased for the week 62,000 bales, and are now 33 000 bales larger than a year ago. Exports from the ports thus far this season to last night were 386,226 bales, against 629,812 bales for the same time last year. Judging from the interior shipments the port re ceipts next week will not be any larger than those of the past week, which were small compared with those of the same week last year. The speculation was heavy and plenty of bulls are still confi dent that cotton is going higher. A $300,00(TfIBE. One of the Best Bice Mills in the Country Burned.
