It is remarked that Bryan will conduct
a [campaign of elocution. He is the
greatest orator since Patrick Henry.?
Congressman Joseph C. Slhley, of
Pennsylvania, says he is better than the
platform, and concludes: "I fear no man
as chief magist rate who at the close of
each day's labor on his bended knees in?
vokes the guidance of Almighty God and
seeks in'public and private action to con?
form to His revealed will."
The speech of Mr. Bryan at Kansas
City was a gem of oratory, nlKMinding in
logic of the most convincing character
and phrases that fitted the thoughts of
Hie speaker like perfectly adjusted
mechanism 'moving onward towards the
performance of the work for which it was
designed. A man who e?n discourse so
eloquently on' any^topic that comes up
before hup must Ik- cast in a superior
mental mould, and carries '.with all his
utterances the sure omen of victory. His
nomination at Chicago was not the out?
come of emotion, but the delil>erate re?
solve of men moved by a common impulse
to the attainment of an end, for which
they saw in Mr. Bryan a ready and effec?
tive mean-. His nomination was brought
about by tho same mysterious power
which has moved the people along right
paths, when all their efforts were devoted
to the accomplishment of a common pur?
pose. Such a choice is bound to win.
ONLY ONE DEMOCRATIC TARTY.
Senator Faulkner has written a letter
to the Washington Star defining his posi?
tion, which all gold Democrats of bolting
proclivities would do well to read care?
fully and ponder upon. In regard to the
statement tliat he was in thorough sym?
pathy with the Chicago platform and
ticket Senator Faulkuer says:
This statement does not correctly de?
fine my position, and I feel unwilling to
let It pass by in silence.
I believe the Chicago convention was a
legal nud regularly constituted assembly
of delegates commissioned by the mem?
bers of the party to give expression to
the will and wishes of the Democratic
masses of the country. If present and a
delegate to that convention, I should not
have voted for the platform as presented
to it, as in several respects it does not
give expression to my views on certain
A majority of that fairly and regularly
constituted convention, however, adopted
that declaration of principles. Such a
majority can alone determine the princi?
ples and policies of a national party.
The minority have but one of two
courses to adopt.
If the differences are so serious that it
cannot conscientiously support the can?
didate and platform, "it must then seek
alliance with a political organization
whose declaration of principle? accord
with its own.
If, however, the policies announced by
the platform, on the whole, are more in
accordance with the views held by the
minority, than the principals and tradi?
tions of opposing political parties, in my
judgment it is right, and the duty of the
minority to yield to the voice of the ma?
jority fairly and regularly expressed.
There can be but one Democratic party,
and but one Democratic organization, and
when once that party through its regu?
larly constituted agents has nominated its
candidates and declared its policies, there
c an be no middle ground upon which
Democrats can stand.
No faction representing a minority can
claim its name, or usurp its organization.
Believing that the candidates nomina?
ted, and the platform adopted at Chicago,
taken in connection with the history and
traditions of the party, more nearly ex?
press my views in reference to public
question-than the Republican candidates
nominated, and the platform adopted at
St. Louis. I shall give my earnest sup?
port to the nominees of the Chcago con?
WALL STREET'S ATTITUDE.
The bankers of Wall street have been
too obtrusive. They are so bitter in their
opposition to Bryan and Sewall and the
Democratic party that recently they got
up a parade in the interests of McKinley
and Ho hart. An American Hag was
borne in the front, and a red flag, intend?
ed as an emblem of the Democracy, was
trailed in the rear. The^effect has been
Otherwise than what they intended. The
people look with suspicion on this antag?
onism of the Democratic candidates by
the money sharks of Wall street, and
there is a well founded belief that there
was somethng other than patriotism that
compelled the bankers and brokers to cele?
brate. These gentlemen have a natural
repugnance to Mr. Bryan. He is too
favorable to the interests of the public to
suit them. Class legislation, class favor?
itism is what they want, and their can?
didate is Mr. McKinley.
The Republican leaders are "urgent in
their demand that Wall strict -hall not
make such a show of its favoritism
again. Its influence, or, rather, its
wealth, is wanted to aid in the election of
McKinley and Hobart, but the bankers
and brokers arc not Ivitedtogoon parade
again. Their first essay in that line is
more than enough for the observant pub?
lic, who have been set a-thinking and
wondering what make- "patriotic" Wall
street so very much interested in the suc?
cess of McKinley.?Altoona, I'a.. Times.

The gain of a Republican Senator in
Maryland is not a gain for gold,the retir?
ing man l>eing a gold man. In Kentucky
there is a vacancy, the silver party losing
a vote and the succession being in doubt.
The gains which the 'Republicans make
in'the next Senate, beginning the 4th of
March, '97, are generally of a character
not to increase the gold strength. Price,
who is succeeded by a Republican, is him?
self a gold man: Hill, whose term ex?
pires, is a gold man; Palmer, a gold Dem?
ocrat, is liable to be succeeded by a silver
man: Peffer, if the does not succeed him?
self, will probably be succeeded by a sil?
ver man: Squire, of Washington, who is
ranked as a - silver man, will be apt to
vote against silver when the party lines
are drawn: whoever succeeds Vilus will
be a gold man, so that there will be no
change In that respect. The greatest
uncertainty for the silver men is in the
election of a successor of Senator Voor
The next Senate, until Senator Blnck
burn's successor is "elected, will consist
of feighty-nine Senators, a majority) of
which will be forty-five. The silver Sen?
ators will number almost to a certainty
forty-three. This leaves in doubt the suc
cessora to Palmer, Voorhees and Black?
burn, and does not count Squire, Wilson,
Warren, Clark and Mitchell, of Oregon,
Republicans, who have heretofore voted
for free coinage, and counts Caffery and
Mills, the gold Democrats. The Repub?
licans and gold Democrats can count
with practical certainty upon thirty-nine
votes in the Senate,and have not an equal
chance with the silver men of making
gains out of the doubtful column of seven.

Washington, July 18.?The Seaboard j
Air Line has withdrawn its new schedule
providing a reduction of 33 1-3 per cent
in freight rates from Boston, New York
and Philadelphia to Southern points.
This action is the outcome of the warj>e
tween the Southern and Seal>oard lines.
The reduced rates from Baltimore have
already gone into effect and will continue
in force. The cut passenger rates from
the East and Baltimore and Washington
are not touched and though in some in?
stances fifty per cent Itelow former rates,
the Seaboard officials say they may l>e
further reduced if the new rates are met.
??The Evening Star says: "Just what
action the Southern will take is yet a
question. The reason why the water con?
nections of the Seaboard refused to recog?
nize their reduced tariff was that they are
members of the Southern States Freight
Association and will abide by it."
The Seaboard officials say they are in
the fight to remain and they intend to
make matters very interesting for all par?
DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED J
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is canstd by an inflamed condit?
ion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian Tube. "When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
Deafness is the result, and unless the in?
flammation can bo taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi?
tion of the mucous surfaces. We will
give One Hundred Dollars for any case of
