they can obtain to maintain their

nominee for President,
The hour was late, but the people
cheerfully waited, unmindful of
Old Sol's scorching rays, their fa
vorite herald of prosperitv, and
when his special train arrived they
yelled until they could sympathize
with him in his hoarseness.
Amid the waving of hats, "hanker
chief 8, umbrellas and a general
hurrah, he was escorted to the stand
and introduced by Chairman A B
Young. For a few moments pans
demonium reigned supreme and con
siderable persuasion was necessary
to quiet the people.
On beginning his remarks Mr.
Bryan was so hoarse that he was
heard with difficulty, but as he pro.
needed bis wonderfully rich, strong
yoice penetrated to the very out
skirts of the crowd, raiting the en
thusiasm of his hearers to at least
100 decrees in the shade.
Mr. Bryan said :
"Gentlemen and ladies, fellow citi
zens : I saw some of Concord s peo
pie in Charlotte, and i tT gives me
great pleasure to see so many of
them here now. As I have but a
few moments I see no better way of
using them than giving you a few
of the questions asked the advocates
of free coinage and their answers.
Very few converts are made by pub-,
lie speaking, but when friend talks
with friend and neighbor runs
against neighbor, they compare
arguments and many votes are
I wish to tell you some things
that you may use in this way:
The advocates of the gold stand
ard appeal to that inherent sense of
honesty planted in the breast of
every man by speaking of silver as
depreciated currency, as a fifty-cent
dollar. Let us see if this is true.
I know of no better way of illuss
trating this than by the price of
butter. In my natiye town out in
Nebraska we buy our butter from a
firm. This man goes out and en
gages all the butter he can, to be
furnished the year round at the
same price 25 cents, I believe, is
the price we pay for it. Now in the
Spring, he finds that he has more
butter than is needed to supply
these customers and so what does he
do? Ue simply places his feutter in
the market and sells it at a reduced
prlce at about 15 cents per pound.
Now it is the earns way with silver.
When the mints were open to silver
it was worth $1.00 per ounce, but
when the mints were closed to sil
ver the supply exceeded the demand
and it naturally sank, not in pur
chasing value, but as bullion meas
ured by the gold standard.
The fallacy of their argument
lies in their measuring silver bullion,

Then they tell you that all tbe
marketable silver will be thrown on
the market. That all the spoona
and silver plate will be thrown into
the crucible and converted into bul
lion. Would anyone do this unless
the value of the bullion exceeded
that of the plate? Of course this
They come to the wage-earner
with the argument that free silyer,
by increasing the currency, will de
crease the value of your wages with
out increasing them. The gold
standard has starved the consumers
of your labor. Starve the consumer
and the factory must stop.
This is a manufacturing town. 1
wish to speak a word to these opera
tives. You believe free coinage to
be to your interest. Your ballot is
your own. Your employee did not
give you your vote do not let him
take it from you. (G.eat applause.)
I want just one more word. Your
vote is your own. It is your privi
lege to use it as you see best and to
your best interest. Thanks for your
kind attention" And again tbe
crowd went wild. As he stepped off
the platform there was a tremend
ous rush for the train. As he as
cended the rear platform of the rear
car men clutched at his haul hun
dreds seeking to give him a farewell
shake and the word of "good luck to
you." Amid a wild huzza the hero
departed. The attraction was gone
in five minutes the crowd had dispersed.

R. S. Harris,
From a letter written by Rev. J.
Gunderman, of Diamondale, Mich.,
we are permitted to make this ex
tract: I have no hesitation in re
commending Dr. King's New Dis
covery, as the results were almost
marvelous in the casa of my wile.
While I was pastor of the Baptist
church at Rives Junction she was
brought down with pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. 'iernbJe
paroxysms of coughing would last
hours wiih little interruption and it
seemed as if eho could not survive
them. A friend recommended Dr.
King's New Discouery; it was quick
in its work and bighly satisfactory
in results. Trial bottles free at
