Ghent, oc2-tf coal trust. Ho said that four men meet In Wall street. New York, every day and fix the price of coal for every man In this country, and tho honest la? boring man has to pay the price for It, no matter what the costs are. He said It was a datiKcrous state of affairs, and these heavy burdens had been placed upon tho people by the Repub? lican party, which Is the party of trusts, and yet you, the Republicans, talk about prosperity. What kind of prosperity comes to the people who mine the coal? Go ask the hundreds who are now thrown out of employ? ment because, forsooth, they usk for only honest wages, that their families may be comtortably supported, and you will soon learn that the prosper? ity is only for those who own the mines and not the poor minors, whose fami? lies are suffering for tho bare necessi? ties of living. Air. Til ton next touched on the Im? perialist policy of the Republicans, and said that this same party had sent Its armies 7,0UI> miles beyond the seas to hold 'and control 10,000.000 of unwilling subjects, and ail this expense had to be borne by tho people. Yes. you have di? rectly or indirectly to foot the bill. Are these people citizens.' No, for they are denied the right of trial by jury, und standing in this position, they are now under a more galling yoke of bondage than they were under Spain. America needs no standing army to subjugate an unwilling people. This country has always been an asylum for tho op? pressed, but when you use the arm Of the government to subjugate an un? willing people, who are not homogen? eous to our institutions, you subvci i the very foundation of civil and reli? gious freedom, and thus destroy the Constitution of the United States, which is the very charter of American freedom. And this, follow Democrats, Is the policy of tho Republican pluto? cratic party. Air. Tllton urged his hearers to stand by the Democratic party in the present contest, which Is the party of the peo? ple and for the people of America. Mr. Tilton's remarks wore received with great applause and music by the Lambert's Point Brass Rand. MR. BIBB'S ADDRESS. Air. W. L. Bibb followed Mr. Tllton in an able and exhaustive speech on the issues involved in the present cam? paign. He warned bis audience of the dangers which threaten and menace the country tinder Republican rule. He said tho trusts In this country were the main prop and support of tho McKinley parly. He said a few groat magnates own more than one-half of the "wealth of this country, and these men control tho trusts that oppress the masses, and every one of them, with barely an ex? ception, belong to the Republican party. He said during the past year that great trust, tho Standard Oil Com puny, gave to onb man a prolit of $40. ooo.ooo. Tho Constitution teaches that all men are political equals, and what we want Is a government for the groat masses nnd not for tho few, and the mission of the Democratic party to? day is to preserve In tact II! ^'y of conscience, freedom of spe<>ui and equal rights in the government of the affairs of this country. The success of the Democratic party now menus the perpetuation of civil and religious lib? erty and a government by the people and for the people, and not for the few to the disadvantage of the toiling masses. Ill .losing, Mr. Bibb paid a glowing tribute to Hon. William Jennings Bryan, the modern apostle of human rights, and predicted his election on tho f.th of November. Mr. Bibb's address was received with rounds of applause. MR. P. J. MORRIS. Air. P. J. Morris was the next speaker. His remarks were applied to Hi" ousts and the expansion policy of the Republican party, and the dangers which threaten the country under its continued rule. HON. R. C. MARSHALL. Hon. R. C. Marshall closed the dis? cussion of tho evening in a ringing ad? dress replete with sound arguments, logic and eloquence. Ho dealt telling blows on the Republican party and showed thnt It was the enemy and not tho friend of the people. Ho referred to the groat trusts now in ex? istence, and especially the Stand? ard OH Company, with a capi? tal of $100.000.000. had In six months de? clared a dividend of jiis.ooo.ooo, or STt'.. 000.000 per year, and practically no one else is allowed to engage In this busi? ness but the few who control It. He said (he Sugar Trust is not so large, but the proportion of prolit Is almost as large. Captain Marshall touched also on the Imperialistic question, and said that the 10,1.,<.f I.pie beyond tho great Eastern Sea had been conquered by armed force by the United States Gov? ernment, nnd that those 10,000,000 of people were without representation. He said that this same Republican partv that fought to free s.ooo,000 slaves in the South was now lighting to make 10.000. 000 slaves of a people thousands of miles beyond the seas, and these worn unwilling subjects, and this all under the plea of expansion. Captain Mar I shall predicted the election of Bryan in the coming contest. The meeting came to an end with I three rousing ( iu ers for Bryan, Steven i son and Mnynnrd.

NORFOLK WILL NOT SUFFER. THE RAILROAD COMBINATION FOR EXFORT BUSINESS. Under the above heading the Rich? mond Dispatch of Sunday publishes the following: Roanokc, Va., Oct. 13.?Much has been said In the papers of the State In the Inst few days with regard to an agree? ment between several large railways, of which the Norfolk and "Western Ib one, to abandon Norfolk as a shipping point, and to combine all export busi? ness at Newport News. A representa? tive of the press called on Thomas S. Davant, general freight agent of the Norfolk and Western, on yesterday, and asked him for an ofllelal state? ment. Mr. Davant dictated the follow? ing, which he signed: " 'The facts are that the Norfolk and Western, Southern and Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Companies have entered into an agreement to build up the ex? port traflic through Ilnmpton Roads. Under this agreement there will be di? rect sailings to London, Liverpool. Hamburg and Rotterdam from both Norfolk and Newport News. To Ant? werp. Glasgow. Amsterdam Belfast and Dublin the sailings will be from Newport News direct, and the Norfolk and Western and Southern Railways will deliver their freight for these points at Newport News. There has been no service from Norfolk to these ports. Experience has shown that there Is not sulllcient traflic to maintain in? dependent Bteamshin service from Nor? folk to all the ports named, und the plan referred to was decided upon as the surest way of securing permanent steamship lines from the ports of Hampton Roads.' "From the above ofllelal statement it will be' seen that the agreement means an Interchange of shipping between Newport News and Norfolk. The Chcs apenke and Ohio will transfer freltrht to Norfolk for such steamers as do not touch at Newport News. Tho balance Will, if anything, be In favor of Nor? folk. In all. there will be a fleet or twelve steamers plying between Hamp? ton Roads and the ports above named. The agreement between the railroads is merely to establish a sure means of shipment, a thin" they have not always enjoyed, owing to the Independence of the ship owners." Statomont From Nlr. Culp. Mr. .T. M. Culp, traffic manager of tho Southern Railway Company, being asked by a representative of thin paper for a statement regarding reports to effect that the Southern railway hud entered Into arrangements with other lines by which export freights for the South and West via Norfolk would be transferred to Newport News and theie be loaded on board ship, said: "Under a recent arrangement entered Into between the Southern railway, Chesapeake and Ohio and Norfolk and Western railroads, it was agreed that these three through lines should deliver freight at both Norfolk .and Newport News for export to London, Liverpool, Hamburg and Rotterdam, the service direct from Norfolk. Tho freights for these points, in connection with South? ern railway and Norfolk and Western, will be Increased Instead of reduced under the arrangement referred to. "It Is designed that steamers sailing direct from Norfolk shall take freight not only from the Southern railway and Norfolk and Western, hut also from the Chesapeake and Ohio, Seaboard Air Line and Atlantic Coast Line likewise. Ships sailing from Newport News will take freight from that point from the various roads named. There has been and is now no direct steamship service fiom Norfolk for Antwerp, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Belfast and Dublin, but under the arrangement proposed the roads leading into Norfolk would be In position to send their freights for these ports through Norfolk, thereby sending freights via Norfolk, which, except under this arrangement, would have to be sent over lines not operating through the port of Norfolk. "This arrangement. Instead of operat? ing against the port of Norfolk. Is cal? culated tu improve the export traffic through Norfolk, in that under It the number of ships sailing from Norfolk will he Increased, and freight may be shipped via Norfolk, which, in the ab? sence of this arrangement, might be compelled to seek other routes not operating via Norfolk." Retaliatory Action. It is rumored that various ocean steamship lines entering this port will unite in an effort to secure a large por? tion of the freights that the recent agreement between the Chesapeake and Ohio, Norfolk and Western and Southern Railways, and the United States Shipping Company, will divert to this latter-ocean line. It is suggested that if no other means will accomplish the i('.-.till dcslied 11 if steamship cinn pnnies that will suffer by the arrange? ment may send agents to sollolt freights through the South and West in the territory where the railroads reaching Norfolk get their freights. The railway lines named would then be compelled, under the inter-State commerce law. to lay these freights down as cheaply at the Virginia ports as they do for the United States Ship? ping Company. B- M A. Electric Lights Out. The Board of Trade and Business Men's Association's rooms were In darkness Sunday night, caused by the burning out of the main wire in the building about S o'clock Sunday morn? ing. However, there was gas in the rooms, and this wns substituted Sun? day evening for tho electric lights. When the electric wire burned out Sun? day morning the wall paper In the main hallway caught on fire, hut the blaze was discovered by one of the col? ored porters, who extinguished the flames In a moment, of time by the use of a basin of water. Bitten by a Mad Dog Two children of Harry Brown, for? merly of Norfolk, but now residing on the Nlmmo farm, in Princess Anne county, and a third child were bitten by a rabid dog in Princess Anne Sun? day. One of the children of. <r. Drown was bitten through the Jaw and the other on the leg. The dog attacked and hit several head of cattle before he could be killed. Elsewhere in this issue we direct your attention to the card of Dr. C. K. Rhodes, Dr. Rhodes is a graduate of (he On? tario Veterinary college, one of the best Institutions of its kind in exist ence. His ability as a veterinary In 4he treatment of horses and cattle has placed him in the front ranks of his profession. He is now giving special attention to the treatment of canine diseases, as there are now a vast num? ber of valuable dogs In the city. For a number of years he had entire charge of the Stnunton Kennels, which for years contained 40 to 50 of tho best trained hunting dogs of Virginia It* If you want pure silk, or silk and wool underwear, consult RUDOLPHI * WALLACE, 833 Main Street. WATER WORKS BID* W. D. PENDER WISHES TO BUT OR SELL TO THE CITY. There was a meeting of the Finance Committee in Joint session with the Water Committee yesterday afternoon. There were present for the Water Com? mittee Messrs. j; M Keeling. N. Bea man and J. W. Cashln; for the Finance Committee Messrs. N. Beamun, W. W. Old, C. H. Consolvo and E. L. Mayer. Judge Keeling presented tho follow? ing communication to the committee, namely: Norfolk. Oct. 15. 1900. Hon. J. M. Keeling, Chairman Special Committee: Dear Sir?In considering the water question for tho city. I desire to ask your consideration of three proposi? tions, and would be glad to have a hearing before your committee at such time as might be convenient. 1st. I will make an offer of purchase of the city water works at a very goud price. Und. I will sell the Norfolk County \\ ater Company plant, which would he the means of the city obtaining an ad? ditional water supply, together with n now water main and pumping station. 3rd. I will sell the city from one to two million gallons of water per day, delivering the same through our pipe line, and thereby relieving the city lino of that much pressure: or I will supply a section of the city and collect the same rates as now prescribed by the city. This proposition would give the citi? zens water at the same rates as now prevail, and save the city Interest on what it would cost the city to Increase Its plant?say $2?0,000 at I per cent, would be $10.000 annual saving. In re? lieving the city's pipe line of from Ohe to two million gallons would enable the present (city's) plant to give better pressure than it does now. I would be very glad of an oppor? tunity of discussing the matter In de? tail with your committee. Very trply. W. IX PENDER, Att'y for Norfolk County Water Co. The following questions were ar? ranged to be submitted to the Water Commissioners, namely: 1st. Number of pumps on hand'.' Capacity of each pump'.' Make of each pump? Time of purchase of each pump? Price paid for each pump? Present value of each pump, approxi? mately? Present condition of each pump? 2nd. Capacity of filter plant as orig? inally built? .Maximum capacity of filter plant at present time, with re? cent additions? 3d. Capacity of 24-Inch main at -10 pounds pressure at pumping station: at r>0 pounds pressure, and nl 00 pounds pressure? What is the maximum which would be safe to carry mi the present main line? Untier what pres? sure now working at the pumping sta? tion? Name specific pound pros itiv ns to this question. Replies to these questions are to lie made by October ISth at 4:30 p. in. No definite action was taken on the letter of Mr. Pender proposing to buy the City Water Works or to sell to tie city the Norfolk County Water Coni pany plant.' The meeting adjourned to meet Octo? ber ISth at 4:30 p. m.
