Moore Chairman JONES of the Demo cratic National Committee has is sued an appeal to all persons who favor the election of Bryan and sup port of the Democratic platform to display at their homes or places of business the American flag on Sat urday, October 31st. THE many friend: of United States Senator Blackburn, in Delaware, will be glad to learn that he is fast recovering from his recent illness. In a personal letter received by the editor of the Countian the Senator stales that he will be in the hai ness again for Bryan and the ticket, and 1 dither says that he has no doubt of the election of Mr. Bryan by a large majority. AGAIN are we indebted to the Philadelphia Item for the very ex pressive cartoon which we present on our first page to-day. The Item ii to day the leading free silver I iper of the Bast. Battling against the combined gold-bug organs ol Philadelphia it nobly holds its own. l! is a paper that should be in the hands of every farmer and working man in Delaware as well as Penn sylvania. STRAWS show which way the Wjnds blow. On Sunday last the newspapers intended, for Laurel, /ml., were thrown off at this station, ai.j those intended for our own Laurel went over into Maryland. \. hen the bundle left here was op* ried it was found to contain over a j.andred copies of the New York j jurnul, the leading free silver paper of the country, and not a single Hannacratic or Republican organ. This shows that our friends over in Maryland are all right on ».io* silver question. -V.UCH has been said in the Han r.icratic and Republican organs ai out the working man's vete. In * timating it -they claim that work i.v;men are turning outin McKinley I ..i.ules, and carrying McKinley I ....ons. In this connection it mighi i ** well to recall to the minds ol t -se lame organs that up in the c ,y of Wilmington during the Gar licid campaign workingmen by the thousand turned out in Republican parades wearing caps and capes purchased for them by the Wilming 1011 manufacturers, ship and car builders. They wore the caps and capes all right and they marched I eliind the bands all right. But • -! All, when election day came Hancock carried the State, unJ we didn't have the secret bal lot, either. THE RISE IN WHEAT. for in Wheat has risen in the past five weeks until on Saturday last it reached within a fraction of 86 tents at New York and Chicago. Republicans and gold-bug orators ind organs are clapping their hands ,n glee over what they term this wonderful evidence of dawning prosperity. Now let us look at this sudden fluctuation in wheat, and its cause. In the first place the rise and the manner in which it was brought about show conclusively that the wheat gamblers on tile exchanges in both this country and Europe had for weeks been preparing for this stroke. It began by manipulations in Chicago where millions of bushels have been stored in elevatois. The usual rumors accompanied the advance, of short crops in every foreign country which usually adds its quota to the world's surplus stock. A rsport was placed in cir culation to the effect that locusts were devouring what remained of he Argentine wheat crop, and that he drought in India, which is al eged to have brought famine to irovinces which in former years lave produced a surplus crop of vheat, has not been broken by welcome rain. All these rumorswere ipread broadcast to influence the narket, and they accomplished their work. Narrowed down we would like to ask what benefit has accrued to the farmers from this sudden rise. The wheat handled by these gamblers at the prices quoted is already on hand. It is^stored by the millions of bushels in the large railroad and wheat speculators' elevators, pur chased from the farmers at low prices and held for just this sort of speculation. To be used as the Hannacrats and Republicans are using it, it must necessarily show to intelligent farmers that the verv candidacy of Mr. Bryan has forced these gam blers and speculators, the railroad syndicates and these grain brokers to act in unisen ori this point. They are spending millions upon millions— 5100,000,000 they estimate them selves the campaign is costing them —in their desperate efforts to con tinue their grip of death on the farmers and wage earners of this country and on the treasury of the Government itself. Elect Bryan, enlarge the volume of our money, undo the damnable crime of 1873, and a rise in wheat will ensue that will be permanent and lasting and it will be A Vise that will benefit the farmer and not merely tfie Chicago <fnd New York speculators. n Ex-Senator Henderson of Missouri delivered a speech for the Repub licans in Wilmington on Monday night, and from 'he Morning News of Tuesday we quote the following paragraph: The Populist platform which is now a part of the Democratic party, for Bryan stands on both, proposes to seize the telegraph and lailroad lines. If these men know what they are doing they certainly intend to reorganize the institutions of this country. Should they be elected and attempt to carry out this plan they will finds no less than 4,000, 000 or 5,000,000 armed soldiers to resist it. We will do as men did in 1861. This same demagogue, Henderson in the same speech alluded to Gov ernor Altgeld of Illinois as an an archist. And this is the sort of poli tical slush that the Republican managers are serving up to intelli gent people. Throughout his entire speech Henderson used not one sentence of argument. The above paragraph alone will give our read ers an idea what the Republicans and gold-bugs of Wilmington are listening to nightly and asking sen sible citizens to consider "sound money argument." Henderson is one of their shining lights. All over this country such men as he are pouring out this sort of stuff and their organs are labeling it "argument." Hadn't that Hannacrat organ up there better brush up that muzzle it was talking about recently. THE Higgins leaders, in our esti nation, have but added to the .omedy of errors they have been 'playing for the past six years, in their latest move against J. Edward Addicks. To attack Mr. Addicks' solvency in the manner they have, when evtrything connected wtih the case that has come to light would indicate that the matter was trumped up for political affect savors a little too much of political perse cution, and already it is plain to he seen that the boomerang effect is setting in. We are no friend of J. Edward Addicks, politically, and decry his methods. But lie can never be downed by methods of this sort. The Higgins men should know that by this time. Democrats of Sussex, we must elect Charles B. Elzey to thé Levy Court. Last week we noted the fact that the Republican factions had made another deal by which two of the Higgins Levy Courtmen withdrew in favor of two Addicks candidates. As the court now stands the election of these two men will give control of this important body to the Republicans. There has been considerable talk regarding Mr. Elzey's candidacy in certain quar ters, as to the manner in which it was brought about, it is time this should cease. We belieye there is not a Democrat in Little Creek hundred who will not support Mr. Elzey. He is in every way qualified for the office, will do credit to the hundred and county, and he should and will be elected. Every man on our county ticket must be supported, gentlemen. There's too much at stake for any personal feeling (if it exists) to be indulged in. We are all Democrats and know but one ticket in this campaign, from Bryan to the coroner of Sussex. HENRY CLAY'S PROPHCEY. IN 1840, in the great debates on the sub-treasury, Henry Clay, of Kentucky, with that prophetic vision for which he was noted, said in answer to arguments presented by the gold-bugs of that day; Do they not perceive that inevi table ruin to thousands must be the inevitable consequence? Aman, for example, owning property to the value of 55,000, contracts a debt fçr $5.000. By the reduction of o'ne f.alf of the currency of the country his'property in effect becomes re duced to the value of $2.500. But his debt undt rgoes no corresponding reduction. He gives up all his prop erty and remains still in debt $2,500. Thus this measure will operate oh the debtor class of the nation, al ways the weaker class, and that which for that reason most needs the protection of Government. Farmers of Sussex county, you know something about this matter. How is it? Was Henry Clay right? Have the amounts of your debts gone down with the value of your lands? If they have not, then Clay whs right. If Clay was right then the free silver advocates of to-day must be right. Experience has proven Clay's prophecy to be true. And we stand just where Clay did. Vote then for your own best inter ests. WHAT FOOLS THESE COLD BUOS BE. The Hannacratic organs of Wil mington and its two Republican allies seem to be all mixed up, and are tripping themselves daily at a' rate that excites sympathy. For instance all three of them blazoned forth in large type Mon day the fact that McKinley was elected, that lie was sure of any where from 270 to 315 electoral votes; Bryan hadn't the ghost of a show, etc. The same papers Tuesday con tained a lengthy account of a "mon ster Republican meeting at the Auditorium" addressed by one of the brightest and best posted men in the gold-bug aggregation. But this brilliant orator, this well posted and shrewd observer gave the lie to the boastful claim of these . .. same organs by saying: It is possible that this.little State may pfove exceedingly valuable, MnMpRHMMil Your vote may decide it all. Think of it—McKinley has sure 315 votes, 91 votes more than he needs. Yet the three little votes of Delaware may decide the contest! "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad." THE CAMPAIGN OF 1896. it We are now nearing the close of what will go down in history as one of the most memorable political contests that the world ever knew. No matter what the issue may be it will be read of by posterity as the campaign in which the whole people took part; a campaign in which the brute force of money power was arrayed against the intelligence of the people. A campaign in which the money kings, the syndicates and trusts of the country, used the millions at their command to coerce and influence the honest sentiment of the voters of the country. And it will be better understood in the years to come just how much the people had at stake in the issue, With prosperity everywhere with a nation advancing along all lines, labor well paid, industry every where, these people will look back with pride to the patriots of 1896, who could not be coerced or pur chased, and who against all the power of wealth saved the life of this nation. U. S. Senator Bacon at Lautet, October 31st. A prominent Concord Demo crat, who has joined the Republican Contingent by bolting the Chicago ticket, says that if the free silver sentiment is as stiong throughout the country as it jis in Seaford and Broad Creek hundreds, Bryan has a walkover. in he is J. of THE first item on the local page of the Sussex Republican last week read: "Get in your election bets." Oh, Brother Davis, how could you do it? Don't you know you are thus advising your patrons to violate the law? Our heart is heavy o'er the picture that is conjured up by that little sentence, and we see here again a striking illustration of the truth of that old proverb about consorting with tilings of evil. Here a short time ago was a man whose every word and act was devoted to the uplifting and ennobling of his fellows. He fell in among the Hig ginsites and the Addicksites, was med '.vi.li them; became one of them—and see the result. He calmly advises his readers to "Get in their electjon bets." We weep. Come out from among them, brother, shun the way of evil doers. Forsake the garb of corruption and election gambling. Put on the bright silvery white gown of pure Democracy and all will yet be well with thee. Crosby the eloquent at Laurel, Oc tober ßist. I it cli; EMORY B. RIOQIN. it Little Creek hundred's candidate for the Legislature is one of the men who can stand before the peo ple of this county on a record self made, built up by energy, industry, perseverance, and honest dealing that will appeal to every honest voter of the county. No man need urge the stereotype adage, "We must vote for Emory B. Riggin be cause he's 011 the ticket." Instead it can with all truthfulness be claimed, "We must support Emory by to of in of in a of . , To 't Schools of Sussex County: BETHEL, DEL., October 24, '96. Gentlemen—r rangements for.t , B. Riggin because he is an honest man, a representative citizen and will, if elected, do his whole duty to his constituency without fear or favor." Born among us, his life from child hood has been an open book that all men may read, and there is not a page of it that can bring a blush to the cheek of any man. There will be no mistake made in his trium phant election. WE are glad to note that our old friend Hon. John P. Donohue, of Wilmington, ex-Speaker of the Sen ate, has been chosen as the National Commander of the Union Veteran Legion of the United States. This organization is composed solely of men who won honor on the battle fields of the civil war. We are glad that Senator Donohoe has been chosen to this high office because the Legion, which we highly respect, has done itself honor in the selection it has made and because a tried and true soldier's worth has been thus recognized. We have tried him in places of trust in Delaware, and wherever you place him John P. Donohoe reflects credit on the position. Congressmen Turner and, Ander son at Lwrel, October jist. Sussex Teachers' Institute. n perfecting (be Twenty-second ar nnuai leacners* inst sex county, the best possible pro vision for the attendance of the School Commissioners of the county has been made. While there is no legal requirement for the attend ance of School Boards, yet it would be a grand, good thing, if each commissioner would feel that it is really bis duty to attend the Insti tute at least one day of its session (provided it be in his power to do so), because the great benefit which he is likely to derive, and also the school which he represents. Those who attend the Institute will be, by far, more than repaid for their trouble, and the good, if put into practice, that will be immeasurable. Last year an invitation, for the first time, was extended to the School Commissioners of Sussex county, which was responded to by a goodly number. All that attended seemed to be highly entertained and well pleased with the ad dresses. Arrangements have been made for Dr. Albert E. Winship, the great editor, lecturer and author of Bos ton, Mass., to deliver an address to the School Commissioners of Sussex county, in Armory Hall, Milford, Thursday afternoon, November 19. An address by Dr. Winship is al ways well received, greatly appre ciated, and highly instructive. The Boston Journal says: "His style is terse, epigrammatic, pun gent, proved by the quality which one has described as sanctified com mon sense." Another great journal says of him: "Such a volley of wit in such polished language, with such fin ished delivery, is seldom heard. Should school commissioners find it inconvenient to stay for the remainder of the Institute, they can leave on the train after Dr. Win ship's address for their respective homes in any dart of the county. Hence, a commissioner can go to Milford, avail himself of Dr. Win ship's address, and return home the the same day, if he wish to do so. Also an opportunity will be given the commissioners to hear that most remarkable man. Dr. Byron W. King, of Pittsburg, Pa., make an address. The expenses of attending the Institute may be great or small, whichever is desired. However, for those from a distance, one would suppose that the necessary expenses of one day's attendance, will be la dinner and railroad ex. penses, Very sincerely, W. W. Knowles, * Supt, of Schools. Notice, I, Joseph D. Truxton, Sheriff of Sussex County, notice that in compliance with sec tion 7, of Chapter 183, Volume 20, Laws of Delaware, entitled an act providing for a Convention, an elec tion will he held Third, day of November, next, for the purpose of electing ten dele gates to the said Convention from Sussex county.

Whi P, ne» lit ,-1 a ii> in-a hi, Vi Being by birth 1 by choice a DiSfurat and fully believing in ever /plank wliichcon stitutes the Democratic platform as enunciated at Cticago, I would like to submit a few thoughts to the voters of-dear oltl Sussex. We are in the midst of one of the most hotly contested campaigns in our country's history, every pulse of party machinery is in action, every nerve is strained to it's utmost, the tension is .great, we ate all aware of a great struggle and we are to day rrnjre thoroughly con versant with thp issues before the people than evelr before. Even that class of our citizens whoa few years ago would retrain from discussing politics, because jüulitically speaking they were unedi(/ated, are now ful ly alive to the position of the two great parties. rijiy feel the need of taking a hand in this campaign, they have educated themselves to know what they are talking about, they know that the trusts, the bankers and the brokers are arrayed in all their power against Bryatt, they know that these same trusts, bankers and briers are working for no one's intelfst but their own; not for the country's sake, not for the toiler's sake, not for the poor man's sake bii^M the sake of their own pockets. now have their hands deep iiitW pockets of the masses but thevfwanttliem deeper. They now hold ii their deft fingers the purse strings of the raw pro ducer and the làbor which makes raw products marketable, hut not content with that they want to wrest from us air very souls, or in other words they would have us vote their way or we shall lose our positions, those of us who are em ployed by corporations Are we not then; are we not as free as our forefathers who wrested from England * not boast tha freedom's soil?' Then let us again declare our lib ' protect our ri follow our gallant leaders to the very polls and there shoulder to shoulder with them help to suppress the threatened plutocratic reign. Have we nominds as well as the moneyed king»» have we not reason as well as the millionaires; have we not hopes as fold as gloated* hond holders dare have; must we he the plodding tolling mass and they to rule, with iron hands in a country where the ballot is sacred, where every man should be a sovereign. That liberty for which our predeces sors fought and died, from that they would deprive as? Give us the manhood, the courage to defend our rights; let us array ourselves a solid phalanx against that which is con tinually a "crown of thorns upon our brow" and "would crucify us upon a cross of gold." Oh Delaware you have ill time gone by justly and proudly boasted of your Democifccy, but by means without your hounds a shadow has been cast across your unblotted page, but again k is your privilege to efface and ( Jlaim what is by right and iustjfc'riour By all mean lelawarean and eir liberty; do we we were born on yty iflht: ; let us claim and s as men; let us own.

BD1TOR Cou iTIAN:—A couple of neighbors of turne —one free silver and the other a gold-bug, met yes terday morning and the following conversation ensued: Said the frep silver man: Mr. Gold Bug, how do you feel about the prospect of electing your gold standard ticket, now? "Why Mr. Silvj r, very bad indeed. This campaign lilts cut me up pretty badly, I don't tlrink I'll be any bet ter till this internal campaign is over.

In April last, site was stricken with paralysis from which there was a satisfactory recovery. A sec ond attack occcurred in July, and a third in August, under the effects of which she lingered till the day of final dissolution. During these tedious weeks of helpless suffering, under the faithful ministrations of an affectionate household, she evinced the , same patient forebearance that had char acterlzed her life-work, and no mur mur of complaint escaped her lips, In the health and vigor of bygone years, she had proved herself a loving wife, a devoted parent, and a trusted friend. And those who knew and loved her best, can revert in memory to a pure and spotlesss life, a quiet and unobtrusive de meanor and a conversation void of offense, without a pang of regret or a tinge of shame. Nor can any disconsolate mis givings as to her future state dis turb the serene confidence they may well indulge; for a knowledge of her child-like innocence compels the solace "Of such is the kingdom of Heaven."

For years it was Iter wont : through heat and cold, to walk to town and attend service at St. Phil ip's. Then when debarred by infirm health from the privilege of common prayer and the accessoriesof public worship, iter Bible and prayer book were her familiar companions. Thus when detained at home on Sunday, it was her custom and consolation, as of all-devout chfirchmen, to re hearse from her prayer book the identical form of "sound words" in which her pious ancestors had wat ed their tributes ol praise and pe tition to the throne of grace, epistle, gospel and psalter appointed 'for the day; the prayers and col lects hallowed by the use of ages; the spirit-stirring "Te Deum" and glorious Litany were mingled in mute hut spiritual utterance with like aspirations from every quarter of the habitable globe, And now that she is gone, it is no superstition to fancy that she will evermore enjoy the blessed benediction to flow from tliatclimax of devout supplication.
