(reenvilIc Mountttaineer, Aug. MU.
The Deiocratic mass meeting in
Greenvillo on the 28th inst. was con
ducted in the most orderly manner, and
the audience showed a thorough appre
elation of the caln, deliberate arguments
of the gentlemen who were appealitig to
their reason and coniion sense, not un
dertaking to intlane their passions or
excite their prejudices.
The court house was well tilled when
the speakers entered at 11 o'clock, and
innediatey afterwards every seat was
occupied and many were standing in the
aisles. The meeting was called to order
by lon. J. Thos. Austin. county chair

No otte needs to be told to try to cure i

e told of a means of cure which will el

n to cure diseases of the organs of
espiration. It cures obstinate, (deep

ecause the British manufacturer has f1

Hleniry M. F'lagier, the Standard Oil
millioniaire, was mnarriedI to Miss Mary
li tily Kentan, of Keinansville, N. C., at c
her home, on Satturdlay, Aug. 2.l. Elah- e

been undiiter way for some1 time past, s5

Ketnansville is a country town in

The last speaker was ex-Congressman
George .Johnstone, of Newberry, who
said that he appreciated the invitation to
speak in Greenville, where he had so of. '
ten appeared in the last thirty years, andi
to whose peopt, he is indebted for much b
kindness and courtesy. When invited -
he was purisuing his destiny as a private C
Citi;en. When the invitation came he c
felt that lie would be untrue even to his
country if he did not come. Ile was in
vited here, lie Conceived, to discuss an 0
actuaiitv and not a theory. lie would C
therefore discuss actualities only. When s
he first heard of the propositions now c
submfitted lie thought them over, and.
carefully weighing the facts he had F
reached a canclusion. These new i
thoughts are called the principles of C
Commercial )emocracy. lie was aware
that many who propose them were lion- I
orabb. men and honest. (ne proposi
tion is expansion : the other is ship sub
sidy, one dependent and following from
tle other. True and honest men he had al
lowed were proposing thein. When a
missionary comes among you, you must
find out who he is and from whence he N
comeS. lie would ask "for whom did "
you vote in the last election ?" Let the
answers be "Wi McKinley." One ma0 l
had said lie hadn't voted for anyone, but
iliina hoped McKinley would be elected.
lie had asked hiinself whence were these v
doctrines derived. They were from Alex- I
ander liimilton. the great opponent of
Th ns Jefferson. Are the Democrats
at this datte to be called to adopt these
thing lie wanted to tell the audience
why neitheri he nor the people had been
Wr, ong I the past.
Progiessive and coiniercial in what
was tis )enIocracy ? Commercial in r
the, IFderal ollices of South Carolina as
the -iall change in the transaction. I
have wondered if our people could be
th biuht. I think not. When Alli- t
mice principles were being pushed they 1
thnoghit that they were right. Some of
these: mennow talking had been known
to say who had ever heard c f Agricultural
I )emiocracy ? Why condemn the Agri
cIltui at' i)enocrat ? Less than ten years b
I ag they were trying to push Agricultu
ra )kni eracy and the) now claim the
riuht to uirge Commercial Democracy. t
Didt not the genius of )emocracy jump t
tihet- lissibsippi and advance to Califor
nia ? lie pictured the grand empire that
iad been created by )emocratic expan
sion. )id the party of Hlamilton add a
single foot of land ? Not one. These
men are trying to make you combine ex
mansion and imperialisi.
There areonily two modes of govern
ment. One is by the bayonet. Why at <
tempt to live uis confound these two t
things ? If th,.re are any Comnierciil
)enmiocrats here I will show them thu I i
differunce. In Florida the people were 1
allowed to form a local government for I
thenselves 'Then other stars were add- t
ed to the American flag. Such is expan
siti. Now what is the proposition ? I
did not comei here to talk to you with
sftened words. I wish to appeal to
ur (l-given spirit. Spain governed
Cuba for thriee hundred years, nay, from
the discovery of this country; military
ssatraps andi despotism ruled supremo.
I)The dotwnt-trodkden peopile appealed to
a the civilized woirld. We heard the cry
tandi we said to Spain take yo~ur foot olY
of a struggling people. Whby did we do
e it ? A nation must lhe true, and we
it promnisedl the Cubans that we wouldl give
>rtfrediom and lo cal go ver-nment to the
II struggling cotry. And I am not ready
- t o sece us place a falreehood before adinir

tted and very attractive woman of
irty-six. She is a member of one of
o best families of North Carolina,
)ing a daughter of Captain William
. Kenan, who served in the Confed

Flagler secured a divorce from his
sane wife in Florida the week before,
ider the law passed by the Florida
egislature at its last session. It was
)enly cliarged at the time that the
w making incurable isanity grounds
ir divorce was originated and passed
pecially for Flagler's benefit.
Mrs. Flagler is a patient in a private
nitarium at Pleasantville, near White
Lins, N. Y., where she has been for
iree years. Iter expense is $1,000 a
onth at the sanitarium, and Flaglor
lows her every indulgence. Her fors

The names of Flagler and Miss Kc
in have been linked together by gos
p for a long time. They have been
arm frieuds, and Miss Kenan and her
other have been guests of the mil
anaire on several occasions during

Henry M. Flagler began his career
a day laborer in the logging camps
Ohio. It was hard and arduous toil,
ith many privations and disadvani
ges, but they only served to develop
ore fully the spirit of determination
id energy that has characterized his
ter life. In a short while lie became
terested il tie oil lands of the State,
id by careful, conservative invest
cuts nanaged to accumulate a nu

irtuie has sprung.
About lifteen years ago he first came

To-day Henry M. Flagler pays near
r one-half of the taxes of Dade Coun.
', and there is no enterprise tending
the advancement of this section or
s people that lie does not substantial
