Matrimonial.
On yesterday at 12 o'clock, m., Miss
Liz/.ie 0. Brown, daughter of Mr. O. M.
Brown, was united in marriage with Mr.

a large number of friends and relatives of

The bride was beautifully dressed in a
handsome white silk and looked charm?
ingly, while the groom was dressed in
regulation black. Thare were no atten?
dants as the marriage was a quiet one, and
had not been announced until a few days
previous. Miss Arties Brown, sister of the
bride looked very pretty as llower girl,
walking in front of the bride as she entered
the parlor where the ceremony was per?
formed. After the usual congratulations
the bridal party and guests were invited
into the dining room where a sumptuous
repast was spread and was heartily enjoyed
by all, the editor of the REPUBLICAN being
so fortunate as to be among the number.
Early in the afternooa the budal couple

PAINFUL ACCIDtriT.
A Young Lady Thrown From Her Horse,
Bruised And One Rib Broken.
On Monday morning Miss Sophronia
Peery, daughter of Mr. Win. Peery, of
Dix Creek, was riding into town and
just as she was entering the town at the
west end her horse stepped on part of an
old tin vessel, became frightened and
threw the young lady. The horse was
rpiite young, and kicked at Miss Peery,
striking her in the left side. The young
lady was in a helpless condition when dis?
covered lying in the road by Martha Cecil
and Mary Higginbotham, two colored
women, who immediately carried her into
the house of Aunt Sallie Dock, another
colored woman, who lived near the scene
of the accident. Friends were soon in?
formed and Miss Peery was conveyed to
Maj. Brittain's, and Dr. Isaac Pierce
called in. The young lady had received
some painful bruises from the fall, and had
one rib broken by the kick from the horse.
Her injuries are painful but not serious,
we are informed.

RSDAY, JULY 8, 18!
BIG STRIKE OF MINERS.
It is Estimated that 200,000 Men Have
Quit Work.
President Katcbford, of the United
Mine Workers, has ordered a general strike
of the miners belonging to his association,
and the order bus been complied with in
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Western Pennsyl?
vania and in sections of West Virginia and
Kentucky. It is estimated that over 200,
000 men have joined the strike. The
movement is for a higher Fcale of wages.
A similar strike was made in 1894 but was
practically a failure, as the miners con?
tinued to work in many localities, notably
West Virginia. During the strike of 1894
trouble was caused by the shipment of
West Virginia coal to various points in
Ohio, the mineis making efforts to stop
the trafic. The railroad companies made
an appeal to the Sta'e for protection and
almost the entire Ohio National Guard was
put in the field.
If the strike attains the proportions its
leaders and directors claim that it will, it
will be calculated to add largely to the out?
put of the mines at Pocahontas and on the
Klkhorn, if there is no strike at these
points.
A telegram from Columbus, Ohio, says:
"Reporte at hand indidate the strike order
to the mind's was generally obeyed except
in West Virginia, Lastern Ohio and North?
western Kentucky. The Spring Valley
mining district is entirely closed. Order
prevailed everywhere today and no trouble
is anticipated for some time, and there
will be no trouble unless efforts are made
to work the mines with non-union labor.
About 100,000 men actually quit work to?
day."
If the strike continues we may confi?
dently expect the same results that have
attended similar movements in the past.
The operators will try to use non-union
men and there will be lawless efforts made
by the union men to prevent the non-union
men from working. That the strikers w ill
be benefitted is almost impossible. Such
movements are almost always attended
with failure.
Pardons Offered Cubans.
Havana, July 5.?Captain General
Weyler, after his arrival atSancti Spiritus,
Province of Santa Clara, issued a procla?
mation to the insurgents and pacificos,
sayjng that the approaching inauguration
of the scheme of reforms for Cuba was
more important than the insurrectionary
movements in the Province of Santa Clara,
adding:
"Therefore, I will pardon all who sur?
render with or without arms. They may
give themselves up at any military sta?
tion by making signs with handkerchiefs,
so that the troops may know of their in?
tentions to surrender. Thoso who surren?
der with arms will receive provisions
and will be employed on the public works.
Those who bring in cattle or horses with
them may keep the animals or sell them."

GREECE WILL SETTLE IN CASH.
The Government Raises a Loan to Pay
the War Debt.
London-, July 5.?A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Athens says: The Greek
government has already negotiated a loan,
and that the moment the peace conditions
are signed the indemnity will he paid cash
down.
The Powers have agreed upon condi?
tions of Cretan autonomy as follows:
A Christian governor is to be appointed,
and the annual tribute to ba paid to Tur?
key is fixed at $30,000, commencing after
five years.
The foreign troops will remain on the
island pending the formation of an indi?
genous militia under European officers.
The governor is to have the right to nom?
inate and dismiss civil officers. The con?
stitutional assembly is to be composed of
an equal number of Christians ar.d Mo?
hammedans, ami there is to be a gradual
withdrawal of the Turkish troops.
Sacrilegious in Politics.
It is not enough that the Bryanite lead?
ers have shocked the moral sense of people
by their advocacy of fifty cent dollars.
But some of them seem determined to
offend the religious sense as well. The
conduct at the Ohio State convention
conspicuously illastrated the point. Amidst
the political trumpery brought forward to
amuse the mob was a cross of gold and a
crown of thorns, the sacred emblems of
Christianity, placed on a table along with
a live rooster for the edification of the
delegates. It does not appear from the
published accounts of the convention that
one single delegate in any manner made
a protest against the sacrilege, it is also
reported that while a minister was offering
prayer the delegates remained seated ami
smoked and shouted to the clergyman to
talk louder.
The historic Democratic party has Wen
for a century the advocate of rights of the
plain people against centralization and the
aggressions of the classes in demanding
special privileges. It has been the cham?
pion of religious as well as of civil liberty,
it nas numbered among its leaders the
purest and best men and the ablest Rates
men. And this is how some are trying to
bring a great and and time-honored organ?
ization down to the dust.?Baltimore Sun.
Boies Is Sensible.
Richmond Times.)
# The Hon. Horace Boies, of Iowa, is a
little off, as we pointed out yesterday, on
his currency scheme but he is wiser than
his silver brethren when he says that the
16 to 1 propposition is a dead ifsue and
cannot possibly win in 1900.
At the present market price of silver,
bullion, the silver dollar is worth only
about 40-l-2c., and to say that by a single
act of Legislature its value can he at once
increased to 100c. is to manifestly absurd
that Mr. 3oiee, though an ardent silver
advocate, is not williug longer to commit
himself to that proposition.
Mr. Boies has left the sinking ship, and
we think that many others will follow his
ex mi pie within the early future. It is
the begginning of the end. Free coinage
at IG to 1 is a hopeless course. Mr. Boies
is an authority on dead issues.
A Test of Americanism.
Wahington "Star" Ind.)
During the next six months we shall see
how far those people who live in this
country but are anti-American thoughout
are willing to go in an effort to defeat a
distinctly national end. This end is the
acquisition by this Government of the
Hawaiian Islands. The treaty goes over
until December, but the Government is
committed through the signature of the
Secretary of State and the project is in?
dorsed by the great majority of the Amer?
ican people. But those who oppose it
are preparing for a fight, and, appro?
priately enough, will find themselves in
league with, anil under the leadership ot,
a foreign country, Japan against their
own.
Thousands Celebrate.
With thankfulness their restoration to
health by the use of Hood's Sarsaparilla?
Think of the vast army who have been
cured by this medicine?
Men, women and children, who have
sutlered the consequences of impure blood,
who have been ti e victims of scrofula sores,
eruptions, dyspepsia, nervousness, sleep?
lessness.
They have tried other medicines and
have tailed to obtain relief. They tried
Hood's Sarasaparilla and it did them good
They persevered in its use and it accom?
plished permanent cures. Do you wonder
that they praise it and recommend it to
you ? _
