In the elections held in our
sister State, Georgia, last week,
Democracy defeated Populism by a
vote of 23,000.
Susan B. Anthony is stumping j
Kansas for Populism. The Popu

platform a woman's suffrage plank,
and Miss Anthony orates in sup- j
port of that particular plank.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, the
poet, is dead. He died at his home
in Boston on Sunday afternoon
last at 12:10 o'clock. Every school
boy will remember Dr. Holmes as
the author of
"Ay, tear her tattered ensign down."
And every lover of poetry will
remember "The Last Leaf," these
lines of which are said to be the
smoothest and sweetest in the Eng
lish language :
And (ho mossy marbles rest,
On the lips that he has pressed
In their bloom.
And the names he loved to hear.
Have been carved for many a year
On the tomb.
"Go West, young man," has
ceased to sound in the ear3 of the
youth of our country, and now the
cry is, "Go South!" Cyclones and
blizzards and crop failures in the |
great West discourage the settler j
and offer only disappointment and j
disaster to the thousands who
yoarly leave tTae o; "
ern and Middle States in search of
new homes. Northern capitalists
have bought large tracts of land in
the South, and are advertising ex
tensively our advantages of climate,
soil, etc., and the probability is
that within a few years our bound
less resources wiil be developed

Southland be made to blossom like
Ex-President Harrison says ho
would not decline tb.3 Republican
nomination for the Presidency in
1896. Senator David B. Hill
should he be elected Governor of
New York this fall, will probably
be the Democratic standard bearer
and a hard man to beat. Senator
Hill has not as yet, however, ac
cepted the gubernatorial nomina
tion and will not do so unless he
sees that he can be elected. He
does?'t propose to run rfor the fun j j
of the thing. There is a strong
sentiment among Democrats that
a Western man should be nomi
nated for President in 1896, but
Western Democrats are so divided
that just now it might not be
wise to do so. There are so many
strange political gods, the Populist
calf included, in that portion of
our country that many have turned
away from their first love. Democ
racy. However, as matters now
stand we would rather wager on
Stevenson or Morrison on our side,
and Allison on the Republican
than on any other names yet men
The Supreme Court has decided
that the dispensary act of 1893 is
constitutional. Justice Gary de
livered the opinion and Justice
Pope concurred. Chief Justice
Mciver adheres to his former opin
ion and dissents. There will prob
ably be an appeal to the Supreme
Court of the United States.
Justice Gary argues generally
that the regulation of tho manu
facture and sale of intoxicating
liquor comes within the police
power of the State a?d that the
dispensary is such a regulation of
the traffic ; that there is no inher
ent right in any one to sell liquor
and that being the case tho State
has a right to prohibit tho salo '
altogether or to so control it as it
deems host for the general welfare.
Justice Pope assents to this find
ing, which is a long legal disserta
tion on thc constitutionality of the
Chief Justice Mciver dissents
and reiterates generally the posi
tion taken by him when the law
was declared unconstitutional last

The latest telegraphic advices
report a big blizzard in the North- ?
west and a terrific gale on the
Gulf. To-day, Tuesday, we are
apparently getting a touch of both,
as a severe rain storm accompanied
by high wind is raging here.
There has-been issued from the
Ohio Democratic State executive
committee headquarters an address
to the voters of the State, in which
it was declared that the restoration
of silver to free coinage is the su
preme issue before the people.
Chief Constable Holley, who is
located at Charleston, telegraphed
Gov. Tillman that he had seized
twenty-six barrels of whiskey and
thirty-nine large boxes of beer in
Charleston. The seizure was made
from a railroad train. The value
of the seizure is about $1,700.

resided in the State one year."
The grave charges made about
the financial management of the
dispensaries in this State make an
l&vBsiig&tios of sse? essmgmse^j
by the Legislature at its coming
session one of the necessities of
;he situation. Gov. Tillman will
no doubt recommend such iuves
;igation in his message, and the
jovernor-elect can do nothing bet-j 5
;er than to re-iterate such recom
mendation. These charges are no
loubt false, but all tho greater is
:he reason for investigation, as
)therwise, the people may enter up
i judgment by default against the
Reform administration,a judgment
oy the way that in politics is not
easily reversed. Reformers, if we
?now ourselves, have nothing toi

lo not the sooner we do the better.
Pardoned Out to Die.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.-The Presi
dent has pardoned Peter Green,
convicted in South Carolina of
naving counterfeit money in his
possession, and sentenced injune,
1893, to six years' imprisonment
it hard labor and $100 fine. The
ground for pardon, which was once
before denied, is the bad health of |
the convict, who is in the last
3tages of consumption.
Royal Blood in Everybody's
Every man who has two parents,
four grandparents, eight great
grandparents, sixteen great-great
grandparents, thirty-two great

if we reckon twenty-five years to a
generation and carry on the above
calculation to "William the Con
queror, it will be found that each
living person must, have had ai
that time even the enormous num
ber of 35,000,000 of ancestors.
Now, supposing we make the usual
allowance for tho crossing or inter
marrying of families in a geneo
logical line, and for the same per
son being in many of the inter
sections of the family tree, still
there will remain a number at that |
period even to cover the whole
Norman and Anglo-Saxon races.
What, therefore, might have been
pious, princely, kingly, or aristo
cratic, stands side by side in the
line with the most ignoble, plebeen,

Country Minister's Explanation.
A country minister iu a certain
locality took permanent leave of
bis congregation in the folJowing
pathetic manner: "Brothers and
sisters, I came to say good bye. ]
don't think God loves this church,
because none of you ever die. 1
don't think you love each other,
because I never marry any of you.
I don't think you love me, because
you have not paid my salary. Your
donations are moldy fruit and
wormy apples, and 'by their fruits
ye shall know them." Brothers, I
am going away to a better place. I
have been called to be chaplain of
a penitentiary. Where I go ye can
not come, but I go to prepare a
place for you, and may the Lord
have mercy on your souls. Good
bye." The minister was then ready
to accept a louder call for a higher
The Art of Music.

The Shah of Periia, when visit
ing the late Emperor of Germany
some years ago, was taken to the
opera, and during the course of the
performance was asked how he
liked the music. He confessed
that the majority of it was pretty
crude, but that one piece the or
chestra had just been playing was
simply supurb. The Emperor at
once gave orders for the repetition
of the piece.
"No," said the Shah; "that's
Another one was played.
"No," returned the royal visitor,
"it's not that, either.
Presently the orchestra began to
tune their instruments.
"That's it," cried the Shah, en
thusiastically. "That's the piece
I was trying to tell you about!"
So, for the edification of this
barbaric ruler, and the anguish of
ihe rest of the audience, the or
chestra tuned and untuned their
instruments in the most heart
rending fashion, and thc Shah
leaned back in his chair, while his
face wore a look of unspeakable
