The attack of the Kryanites upon
Theodore Roosevelt in Colorado has ar
roused widespread indignation through
out the country. The people begin to
understand that while all Bryan sup
porters are not rioters, all rioters are in

violence offered Roosevelt by hired for
eigners paid $2 each for the dirty work,
rioters attempted tin- same thing at New-
York when Senator Hauna spoke a few
nights ago. Coming nearer home, when
Congressman Cushmau spoke at Palouee
last week a Bryunite approached a dem
ocratic nominee vith the suggestion that
Mr. Cushmau be rotten egged. The
nominee had better sense aud gave the
Bryanite rioter a lecture which he will
remember. Like the c-ob at Victor,

The recently published report of General
Otis fastens upon tiie American m> called

have been sustained in their hope of
final success by the information and en
couragement sent them by Americans,
who huve sought to block the tfi\»ii« „f
this government to put down rebellion
ia a distant, territory. General Otis' re
port makes it clear that the Bryanite
copperheads of lISDB VMM have Riven
the Filipinos their best excuse for and
hope in continuing in rebellion against
the United States. In other words, the
democratic copperhead* of 1898 1900
have blown the dying firoH of rebellion
in Luzon into fresh flame, just as the
democratic copperheads in LB6B 64 did

After the repulse of Lee at Gettysburg
and the eurrt-cder of Vicksburg, Presi
dent Lincoln offered the south peace and
payment for their hSuves. Lee and
Longstreet and Vice-President Stephens
believed after the final loss of Chatta
nooga, iv November, 1868, that the dis
asters of the yenr had made final success
for the South a military impossibility;
and all hope of recognition by the pow
ers of Europe had been obliterated by
defeat. The frightful final year <»f fij^lit
ing which began the first week of May,
1864. aud did not end until May, 1865,
would never have been undertaken had
it not been for the desperate pfforte of
the copperhead democracy of the North
to prolong the resistance of armed r»>
beliion until a change of administration
made it possible to make peace without
honor with the South; that is, either
peace with absolute independence, or
peace on the basis of the union and the
constitution, as it was was before the
tiring on Sumter. The copperhead part;
of the North in 1863 64 was responsible
for the prolonged resistance of the
southern confederacy after resistance
had become hopeless. By November,
1864, the resources of the confederacy
for another campaign had become utter
ly exhausted. The finances, recruiting
of soldiers, commissariat, transporta
tion, ordnance, ammunition and medical
supplies had all failed. Thecont-cripti.in
act embraced every man between 17 and
50. Desertions had become common.
Confederate treasury notes were seliicg
at 60 to 1 for specie at the treasury, and
a thousand barrels of flour coat §<)."i(i,
--000. The confederacy had lost the Mis
sissippi, Tennessee and Cumberland
rivers, and the coasts of the Carolina*),
while Mobiie Bay was in our hands and
Savannah fell by Christmas, 1864.
This was the desperate situation to
which the southern confederacy hud been
reduced by January, 1865, in conse
quence of being persuaded by the cop
perhead democracy of the North to hold
out till November, so that it could upset
Lincoln and his war policy, when an
armistice would instantly follow, to be
succeeded by peace to the South on the
terms of independence or a union re
stored with slavery. At this distance of
time it may seem that the South was
reckless, in its desperate condition of
January, 1864. to risk another yeur of
awful battle on the chance of Lincoln's
defeat in November, 1864; but there are
many chances in war, and if (Jrant and
Sherman had been beaten as badly in
battle in May, 1864, as Hooker was in
May, 186.'], at Chaucellorsville, and as
Kosecrans was in September, 1865, at
Chickamauga, the campaign would have
been stalled for the summer and Lincoln
would have been defeated. Lincoln, as
astute a politician as ever lived, felt this
to be true, for he predicted that not' i s
would save him from defeat but victory
in the field, and he made a written mem
orandum that, if he was defeated iv No
vember, 1864, he would practically re
sign from the office of president, so far
as only to seek to co-operate with the
purpose of his presumed successor, Gen
j eral McClellan. Nevertheless, while he
felt despondent in priyate, in public he
uever lost his nerve, for he wrote the
great Grant meeting in New York City,
in May, 1864, three days before he was
renominated for president: "I trust you
will shape your good words of sympathy
for Grant and his struggling soldiers so
they will mean men and guns moving to
his and their support." Victory in the
j field came to Lincoln in the shape of At
| lanta and Opfquan and Cedar Creek,
j and he won the election; but if the luck !
:of war had turned ijgaiust him in a
great battle which decided a great cam
paign, east or west, he would as he pre
| dieted, have been defeated. The south j
crn confederacy, by confession of Jefl
Davis, gambled something on this
chance to give Grant or Sherman a
"black eye" in battle as they had Hook-
N and Roeecrane. Davis and his con- !
federacy gambled on this chance with
justifiable audacity, for, if they won, the
confederacy was sure of peace on its own
That False Prophetic Colonel.

American people easily forget. For fear

by Colonel Bryan iv 1896, by which he
hoodwinked ho many citizens of Wans

times must a political prophet deceive
the people in order for them to extend
unto him their unlimited confidence and
their votes?
Senator Frink's Record.
Having found Senator Prink iuvul-
Derable as a candidate, the fusion lead
ers and the fusion pr<>ss have fallen back
upf>;\ their unfailing resource—deliberate
falsehood, says the Seattle Post-lutelli
geu- cr. A systematic campaign has
bee?; begun by their emissaries and
through their newspapero, bused on the
assertion Th.it, a* a member of the state
legislature, Mr. Frink waß opposed to
reducing railroad freight rates. By this
means it i?-' hoped to prejudice farmers
against him; and the bold charges that
appeared yesterday in the Seattle Times
are but copies of what have been circu
late.} quietly among those whom it is
intended n> deceive.
The amazing impudence of this can be
be accounted for only by supposing that
these desperate partisans, having noth
ing to lose, hope that the lit- may travel
bo fast that the truth cannot catch up
with it; and rely upon the inability of
the average voter to consult the official
legislative records and learn for himself
vvii. fcher the rtil-ctions upon the republi
can candidate are false or not. Other
wise they would scarcely have dared so
to affront the truth, and to distort into
a weakness the splendid legislative
record that is one source of Mr. Frink's
strength before the people.
lv iliin they are reckoning without
their Lost. The Post-Intelliyoucer has
examined the state legislative records
for t \ii- entire period of Mr. Frink's ser
vice in the senate. For four successive
s'c-fionH he was the advocate of the peo
ple nnd tli-.-ir rights. We publish in this
issue the results of this inquiiy, covering
the record of Mr. I- riuk on billi-i affecting
either railroad interests or those of the
ffirmer seeking reasonable ;ransporta
tion rates. Every statement made is
accompanied by the citation of the page
of the senate journal on which official
corroboration will be found. At one
sweep this wipes away the cloud of lies
and slanders that political recklessness
and inn lie- has sought to raise about
ti*e republican candidate for governor.
"'Goad mgkl."
How few women know what it is to
have a jjood night; a night of sound,
restful sleep. They smile and say "good
night" in cheery tones, but when the
chamber door closes behind them, the
smiling mask drops off, and shows the
lines of suffering.
Other women have had the bad nights
chnnged to good by the use of Doctor
Pierces Favorite Prescription. So may
you. Ninety-eight times in every hun
dred it perfectly cures diseases of the
delicate womanly organs. It builds up
the nervous system, puts flesh on the
body and color on the cheek.
"Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. C. N.
Anderson, of Rockhridere BaLhs, Rockbridge
Co., Va., "Is a God-send to weak and sickly
women, restoring health without subjecting
their nerves to the shock of an examination.
" I was all run down in health—could not work
but a short while without resting. Was so
nervous at times that I could not even write;
had a very poor appetite. I decided to write to
Dr. Pierce and state ray case. I received a favor
able reply, and commenced taking the ' Favorite
Prescription ' and ' Pellets.' Took six bottles
of' Favorite Prescription,' one of 'Golden Medi
cal Discovery' and one vial of ' Pellets.' I can
now wvrk as well as I could before I was taken
sick. I think Dr. Pierces medicines the best ia
the world for sick and nervous women."
Doctor Pierces Pleasant Pellets are
specially adapted to the use of delicate
women. Easy to take, gentle in action.
J^H Mk $» *^ offisH HF B**!!^ Cannot be Cut Out or

Surgical operations and flesh destroying plasters are useless, painful and dangerous, and besides, never cure Cancer.
No matter how often a cancerous sore is removed, another comes at or near the same point, and always in a worse form.
Does not this prove conclusively that Cancer is a blood disease, and that it is folly to attempt to cure this deep-stated, dangerous
blood trouble by cutting or burning out the sore, which, after all, is only an outward sign of the disease a place of exit for
the poison ?
Cancer runs in families through many generations, and those whose ancestors have been afflicted with it are liable at any
time to be stricken with the deadly malady.
Only Blood Diseases can be Transmitted from One Generation to Another
—further proof that Cancer is a disease of the blood.
To cure a blood disease like this you must cure the entire blood system —remove every trace of the poison. Nothing cure 9
Cancer effectually and permanently but S. S. S.
S. S. S. enters the circulation, searches o\it and removes all taint, and stops the formation of cancerous cells. No mere tonic
or ordinary blood medicine can do this. S.nS. S. goes down to the very roots of the disease, and forces out the deadly poison,
allowing the sore to heal naturally and permanently. S. S. S. at the same time purifies the blood aud builds up the general health
A little pimple, a harmless looking \rart or mole, a lump in the breast, a cut or bruise that refuses to
heal under ordinary treatment, should all be looked upon with suspicion, as this is often the beginning of
a bad form of cancer.
Mrs. Sarah M. Keesliug, <-,4i Windsor Aye.. Bristol, Term., writes: "I jG*. Blfc Jok fe| Ife

Cancer on my jaw, which the doctors in this city said was incurable, and 9 8

true, and had given up all hope of ever being well again, when my drug- q^ v"^ <s!\

Bryan at His Worst.
It is not pleasant to find a candidate
for president of the United States talk
ing as foolishly or dishonestly as Mr.
Bryan talked at Muneit, Mo.
"The republicans are now boasting
that we have reached a point, where we
can loan money to people in other coun
tries. I want to ask you whether you
regard that as an evidence of prosperity.
Why would any man send his money to
Europe for investment if he could find a
place in this country to invest it?
Money sent abroad for investment must
be sent for one of two reasons, either be
cause the man who sends the money
over there thinks more of the people
over there than he does of the people
here, and does it for love and devotion,
or because it is a matter of business,
that is,because he can invest it to better
advantage in a European country than
he can in this country."
Mr. Bryan either knows or does not
know that the country has accumulated
co much money under that financial
system which he is trying to break down
that it has money to lend at a low rate
of interest to the rest of the world. He
either knows or does not know that a
low rate of interest is good for the coun
try in general, especially for that "debt
or class" for "*hich he shows so much
concern. He either knows or does not
know that a country which is able to
lend must be prosperous. He either
knows or does not know tb>it the big
slice of the German loan taken by a life
insurance company represents in large
measure the savings of many men in
moderate circumstances.
If be does not know these things, be is
too big a fool to be president. If he
d-'^s, and yet talks as he talked at
Monett, he is too dishonest to be presi
dent.—New York Sun.
