The Presidential Election.
We Southern Democrats have
been so often, so long and so
grievously disappointed, that
many of us have given up all
hope and lost heart of ever again
electing a president. The crush
ing defeat four years ago of
Judge Parker seems to have
given our party a solar plexus
blow. But with a patriotic.de
votion, regLularly every four
years, we have marched in solid
phalanx to the polls, to read
next morning, in the daily pa
pers, of another Republican tri
umplh. But there is no room in
our Dixie land -for any new
party, for Democracy to the
South means more than any
empty name or political affilia
tion. It means to us the su
premacy and domination of the
Anglo-Saxon over the African.
Just so long as the negro re
mains among us, and is armed
with the ballot, the white mle
wil! sta.-d together and vote to
gether. Even if we lose in the
nationil contest, it insures to us
our local an(d state governments.
But somehow this year we
have a strong inward belief that
Wi. J. Bryan will be our next
presi. [hose who have
watelel the political skies since!
the <lo(N of our great civil war
assert that the prospects for
Democratic success were never
brighter than just now. In the
first place, in the midst of an
era of unpai alleled prosperity,
Ver: hard time3 mi low upon
us, and for which disastrous
state of affairs the-Republican
party is solely responsible, as it
dontfols the presidency and both
branches of congress. The vot
ers of our republic have -never
as yet failed to administer de
feat to the party in power when
a panic is on durink 4 campaign
year. We Democrats lost con
trol from this cause during
President Cleveland's second
Again, the Republicans are
now on the defensive, aiid'we
have never known a candidate
or party to win when you t
him or them to explaining. The
.Demoorats are now the aggress
ors and the Republicans the
apologists. Then we have never
been able to secure the labor
vote in the N6rth, and which
holds the balance of power In
3several~ doubtful states, for the
Republican cry of "a full din
-~ner-pail" carrie<tthis vote almost
.holid. But now the labor vote
in-bedly split up and divided, if
the Democrats do not capture 't
almost entire, and it does lo
that way. Then the disgrace
ful disclosures made in investi
~ating certain large concerns in
Iewi York, and which have
heretofore -contributed millions
to the Republican campaign cor
ruption fund, have dried up that
source of supply, and we lhate
thus taken from our political
enemies their sinews of war, as
iwere, And as. these corpora
owe their exposure and

N xt Tuesday, Nov , l,"is
tion day. and it bebopves eyey
voter who has a registrationicet
tificate to go to the polls and
vote. The primary election was
only a nominating convention,
and'the tug of war comes Tues
day. If it is a light vote it may
mean a grear, deal to the state
in the way of our representation
in congress being cut down-a
thing that should not -be done.
The Republicens and powers
that be will leave no stone un
turned to hold the- South back
or establish, a party in it, either
of which would be detrimental.
Hunt up your registration cer
tificate and go vote.
It has been revealed that those
Archbold letters that He'arst is
makilg public -were stolen by a
colored porter from that Stand
ard Oil magnate's office. As
old Foreacre, the waver of 'that
Brownsville bloody shirt, was
one of the first republican states
men those documents struck out,
it can but remind us of cooking
a kid in its mother's milk. As
he sinks beneath the wave of
political oblivion, and as his
gaze rests upon that treacherous
coon, he will doubtless exclaim,
"'Et tu Brutus!" -
When John Temple Graves
the other day began to attack
Bryan in a speech he was deliv
ering in a New Yqrk city, he
was silenced with yells and hiss
es. Mr. Graves was born in Ab
beville county, S. C., and raised
a democrat. The people of the
entire South were proud of his
brilliant intellect. Mr. Grayes
imst know there is no possible
chaice of his Independence
League cairying a single state.
So the only thing he can hope
to accomplish by defeating Bry
an is to elect Taft.
Senator Tiilman, who has re
cently returned from his Euro
pean tour, in an. interview insin
uates that Standard Oil money
was used to corrupt certain-pa
ners in South Carolina. If the
Seliator has reason for such a
serious charge - he should name
the offenders, and not leave the
entire press of our state to stand
under such suspicion. The edi
tor of the Sentinel-Journal can
establish an alibi.
Next week the Stntinel-Jour
nal will not go to press until
Wednesday afternoon, in order
to give our readers the Atest
news of the Presidential elegtion.
By rushing things we can make
every mail. We are determined
that our patrons need not go sto
other papers for the all- news of
Teddy should now use that Big
Stick on some of his own hoine
folks and chums. 14 se'ems that

The most hopeful sign point
ing to democratic success next
week is that no bets stre offered
on either candidate. Heretofore
big odds wer'e given on the re
publican nominee. Money talks.
