Not a single trust, corporation,

Bryan can only be defeated by tho
wholesale purchase of votes. We
Iso believe that this is what is be
In only one county in the State
-Georgetown- does the colored
registered vote outnumber the
whites. The colored majority is j
placed at 47.
''While sick the other week Cor

The Indians mt West have pass
ed resolutions against the associa
ti.on of their race with the Yale
students on account of Yale's in
sults to Mr. Bryan. We don't
suppose thfi Indians will eyer get
within a thousand miles of Yale
College, but we applaud their
spunk ail the same. "
The Oconee News says : "W. H

of the State press for speaker of
the House of Representatives. He
has naen a member of the House
for several years, and has made a
mest enviable record and he is
likely to prove a formidable eau
The London Times has the fol
lowing, which laboring men, pro
ducers, and business men should
read carefully :
"If the single gold standard

anet Asia, as it has been since 1873
forced on North America aud Eu
rope, gold must inevitably appre
ciate to at least four times its pres
ent absurd value, or to put it oth

to one-fourth of the present price

crucified as it was never crucified
before-in days of medieval serf

is tho contest. If the money lords
can force monometallism upon the
whole word, they will succeed io
establishing the most gigantic
moneyed aristocracy among the
rich, and the worst system of peo
nage serfdom among the masses
that has, ever cursod the hapless
?ons of men."
What Shall the Harvest Be.
We have been asked to state in
the ADVERTISER what we think
about the national elections. The
next Senate will be democratic i.no1
for free silver of course. Tho Hojse
of Repieseutatives will be more
probably democratic than that
Bryan will be elected President,
ar.d this is from republican sources
here, there, and everywhere.
As to Bryan's electiou, the
chances in our judgment at this
writing are as follows:
Solid South, except Maryland,
will give 142
Total for Bryan *~ 22*
The whole number of votes in
the Electoral College is 447, so that
224 just gets him-in by one vote
This is close figuring but is
?uough, and we like to bo accurate.
Next week wo hope to be able to
squeeze out a few more votes tor

Gov. Altgeld's Views.
Gov. Altgeld of Illinois, spoke
at Cooper Inititute New York on
last Saturday. Previous to the
..peaking he was interviewed by
the Times and gave the following
as his judgment of the situation in
the west :
"To elect Bryan," he said, in an
swer to a question, "we need only
the South and Minnessota. We'll
getthoso States sure. We don't
need Indiana, Michigan, W?U?OU
sin, or I11?UO?8. We have a fine
chance for Indiana. Michigan is
dead certain. I am sure of Illinois,
and even Ohio is likely to repudi

"What is your*idea of the West

"Hanna has gone into - it with
the determination to buy every
thing in sight," was the roply

ONE MAN MISSING.
W. E. Ulmer flagman, is miss

together with Lin -.s and Thomas.
