KE visit of the Presidential candi date of one of the great political par-* ties, was the most notable event in Wheeling miring the past week, and it was of such im portance that the sf»x which wields the ballot found no time for the frivol ities of fashionable life, if indeed the & fair ones were no: equally anxious to catch a glimpse of the distinguished visitor. The men have to devo:e so much time to polit.cs that the money question, in the sense in which-it is brought to their attention, is becoming a bore to the la lies. Wheel ing is located in contested territory, aa i ■with three of four meetings every night, and as many escort parades, very little attention is given tosocial matters. This condition of affairs will not change un til after the November election, when i society may be expected to make up for lost time. ENTERTAINMENTS. A. r*‘member Sweet Aille.

A Gal.fgher, of Beliaire—Hon. John A. Howard at Bellaire—Republican Meeting at Martin’s Ferry. A large and enthusiastic Democratic meeting was held last night the Bridgeport City Hail, under the auspices of the Bryan Free Silver Club. J. A. Gallaher, of Bellaire, and Geo. Duncan were to be the speakers of the evening, but owing to Mr. Duncan s iu health, he was unable to be present, and his piace was filled by Hon. Ross J. Alexander. At eight o’clock when the meeting was called to order, over two hundred peo ple had assembled to hear the gO;J falla cies discussed. Hon. Ross J. Alexander was made chairman c: the meeting, and he. after a few preliminary remarks, entered in up on a sketch of the Oh.o Republicans. Mr. Alexander, after showing the Ohio Republicans up in their true manner, introduced Mr. J. A. Gallagher, of Be.i aire, amid loud applause. After a .ev\ preliminary remarks, Mr. Gallagher entered upon a sound and iog'.ca. argu ment of the money question, of wh.ch the following is a brief sketch: The situation at present is such that the man who owes is losing all the money he has. while the man who loan.^ is consi-yuly doubling h.s. Not oni.. farmers are being crippled by this Rind of thing, but ail laboring classes. Some say that it is the interest of the manu facturer to advocate the gold standard. 1 don’t see why, unless they want to have two men to apply for ever} job ihe\ have open. It will be this kind 0: thing that will continue going on under thp srnld standard, and never, 1 say, wi.i you see good times wi.!e prices Ol &u commodities continue going down as thev are now. h ou must b&ve rising prices to have good times, and "bi.e price? fall you must have depressions Khat arc caused from them. If a man can devise a scientific way to meas ure money without value, his nam "i t go down through posterity. Gold an i silver have measured the value all over the world, and when you take one half of that money away by demonetizing silver, then our products fall ;ti price, or what is the same thing, our money goes up. Some people tell you how much has been done for silver un icr the Republican administration. They say they believe in bimetallism, 1"U it was spelled b-u-y, and they%now have the new “buy an i buy" metallism: we will give it to you bye and bye when England says we can have it. The con stitution says that gold and stiver can be coined for the legal payment of debts, and what we propose to do when we ask for the free coinage of silver is to go back to that constitutional money. The Republicans in their platform of 1S8S and 1892 'eclare for the free coinage of silver, while in the St. Louis platform they say we want sound money. That was all right, but they go on to say we don't want the free coinage of silver without international agreement of other nations. All prominent Republicans were in favor of free silver, and so was McKin ley until he was told by the convention at St. Louis he had to be for gold, and any Republican has a right to leave hi-? party on this issue, for they have always advocated the free coinage of siiver un til this campaign. What ic an honest dollar? An honest dollar is cne which will buy as much of the product of the world at the end of a year as it will at the beginning of a year. An incr-a;e of money that will make commodities go up instead of down, raise the wages of the working man instead of cutting them, and a money that will put them to work in ord*r that they may live comfortably is the kind of money we are advocating, and are going to have.* IION. JOHN A. HOW VKDAT BEL LA I RE. He Addressed n Hajuilicpnt Meeting for Nearly Three Hours. <at evening: he Democrats and silver Tnen of B-Ilaire an 1 vicinity turned out in a magnificent meeting, at the Ciry Hall, to listen to a comprehensive dis cussion of the issues of th$j campaign by Hon. John A. Howard, of this city. Hon. .T. C. Tallman presided, and in opening the meeting made a rattling ad dress of about fifteen minutes, during which he had a good deal of property appr dated fun with the Beilaire Inde pendent. Mr. Tallman has a habit of commenting upon quotations from thtA editorial columns of the Independent, which is wormwood and gall for the Re publicans of Beliaire. while it is curr- n ly reported that*.i;e editor of the Inde pendent don’t sleep for several nights before the date of a speech by Mr. Tall man. and goes around with a far away look in his eyes for several days after wards. The attendance was immense. Tho hall was not nearly capable of contain ing the crowd.and even after Mr. Howard b.i 1 ta’ked for two hours they refused nisnerse. but nipt every proposition to br:ng the address to a close with cries of "Go on.” A number of Bridgeport Democrats w re present. Mr. Howard's exposition of the finan cial situation was earnest, eloquent, lucid and logical. Every point in :hi« intricate subject was made plain to his hearers, and the educational feature was predominant throughout. One thought nor o*t-n touched upon was as follows: “There can be no escape from further issues of bonds If McKinley is elected. The government has no other means of getting gold. Mr. McKinley suggests that he will raise the revenues by in creasing the tariff, bur ‘hat will not re sult in putting mor gold in the treasury, for 'he tariff is not paid in gold, and if importers were required to pay in gold they would simply exchange greenbacks for gold at the treasury and then pay the gold In at the custom house. We are not on a gold basis, but on a bond basis, although the standard is gold. Further sales of bonds will be inevitable if the Republicans succeed in this elec tion. and that means an increase in the public debt lr. times of peace." His address was a splendid onp throughout.

Mr. Rosenthal, who then went on to tell why he left the Democratic party when they declar ed for free silver. Mr. Rosenthal read fram a manuscript He went on to tell that a dollar was not created by law. but was a creation of labor. The constitution, he said, made no provision for making money. The government can put the stamp on that which is worth a dollar. Nations, he said, adopted gold as a Fjandard of money because it fluctuate" less than silver. What we need to make good times is a more active circulation of the money we have got. In this manner did Mr. Roeanthal continue to make assertions for about throe-quarters of an hour without ever attempting to show that they were cor rect statements, and consequently his i audience were not enlightened on flop ping any more at thc end of his speech than they were at the beginning.
