Fraud Feared by Democrats.
WASHINGTON, October -"What wo
havo to fear,'' said Representative Kicli
nt'dsou hero to-day, "in the coming elec
tion is tho wholesale corruption of tho
ballot box, and 1 want to warn every
Democrat lo he on guard to provont this.
I am reliably informell that Hie enormous
campaign fund which the Kejuiblieans
havo raised will ho largely used in this
way, and it will require the utmost vigi
lanco on our part t i provont a repetition
of tho work dono in 'HO.
"At tho prosont lime everything is
favorable to tho election of our national
ticket, and, so far, it lias not developed
as to tho method the other side will em
ploy in putting out their money, bul
thoio is no doubt they will attempt cor
ruption in Somo form."
Regarding the situation in New York
Mr. Richardson said:
"Our chances in the Stale i ni provo

orable reports from all sections. Croker
has said that ho would go to Harlem
Rridgo with 10(1,0(111, and I believe he
will bo nblo to fulfill that pro m iso, Up
tho Stato the leaders are working hard
in harmony with Croker, and 1 am satis
lied that the Republican majorities above
Now York City will be materially re
duced and that the State will be Sltfrlj
On tho genera) situation Mr. Richard
son expressed himself as being well
pleased, Ile said :
"Wo are giving out no ligures yet. but
our information is of the most favorable
nat uro. Our organization is developing
strength everywhere. In sections where
four years ago we were exceeding weak
wo are this year showing unexpected
strength, and, as far as I eau soe, we are
not materially weakened in any of tho
strongholds of 'Oil."
A new remedy for biliousness is now

Now what bas become of South Caro

these discouragements he ?lid not giv? nj)

diaries 1 lani cl, in tho Atlanta Journal,
who interviewed Sonator Tillman, adds
this to li j s dispatch from St. Louis*
"Former Congressman Dockory, tho
Democratic nominee for Governor of this
State (Missouri), told mo to-day that
Missouri will givo Bryan and himself
moro than 50,000 majority in November.
Ho says there is no discord in tho party
ami that every indication points to a
swooping victory in tho Stato. Tho
Democrats evon hopo to wipo out tho
normal Republican majority in St. Louis
because of tho revolt of tho dorman vot
ers from tho Republican party.
"St. Louis usually gives tho Republi
cans 25,000 majority, but tho loaders do

The country districts aro always over
"Tho great street railway striko in this
city two months ago has brought to tho
support of tho Democrats thousands of
voters, because of tho attitude of tho
Republican Mayor, Zoigcnheim, in that
struggle. Tho Republicans fear tho loss
of the city, and they aro preparing to
bring all tho big spell binders nore this
month, headed by Teddy Roosevelt, who
will speak in St. Louis.
"lt is only in the last two weeks that
the campaign in this city ami Stato has
taken on any lifo. There was a remark
able indifforenco on both sides until the
recent visit of Mr. Bryan, who aroused
his supporters to work, and throw a
great fright into tho ranks of tho Oliomy.
The city is now taking on a lively aspect
and the battle may bo said to be on in
earnest. Banners aro being strung
across the streets and Bryan and McKin
ley buttons are seen everywhere. Citi
zens tell ino the apathy among tho Re
publicans is unprecedented. I saw a
demonstration in ono of tho theatres two
nights ago, which indicates tho senti
ment in this Republican city. McKinley
and Roosevelt banners were brought in.
There was hardly a cheer for McKinley.
Roosevelt received a warm greeting, but
when lil yan's picturo was seen there was
a great shout and waving of fans and
handkerchiefs which continued fully a
minute. 1 saw a Republican club parade,
which was sch dilled to be a big demon
stration in support of the nominee for
Congress, but which was composed of
less than two hundred whites and blacks
willi torchlights. Tho same club tu mod
out .nero than ono thousand McKinley
shouters four years ago."
lt Happened in a Drug Store.
"One day last winter a lady came to
my drug store and asked for a brand of
cough medicine thal I did not have in
stock," says Mr. C. R. Grandin, the popu
lar druggist of Ontario, X. V. "She was
disappointed and wanted to know what
cough preparation 1 could recommend
I said to her that I could freely recoin
mend Chamberlain's Cough Uomcdy and
thal she could take a bottle of tho rem
edy, and after giving it a fair trial if she
di<l not. lind it worth ibo money to bring
back thc bottle and I would refund thc
price paid. In tho course of a day or
two tho lady caine back in company with
a friend in need of a cough medicine and
advised her to buy a bottle of Chamber

very good recommendation for tho rem

damago to tho cotton crop in tho samo
