Mr. Tracy Again.
It wz- n"t r puirpiise' have
anythli- further t, say of \r. Tracy.
jor he ha, alread recheived im-re iree
adverti-ing than he deserve-. In
view of his statement. hmwvever. it
becomes necessary to add a u :d.
We suppose that he referred t.. rhe
Herald and News in his remark that
"if persois wonld use a Hitle mre
common 5ense and a penclii they a.
could fgure ant a few thin1. ina
much as it appears in the rep .rt ol .
his speech iL criticism of this papei.
If some people wmuld tell the truth
and the whole truth in their circtilars':
which they issue it would not necess-i
tate the exercise of a pencil or any
figuring to tell a few things. .r.
Tracy said in his remarks Friday
night that he had never said that he
would have a box at the door for
contributions. Possibly not. The re
port, says: "He submitted this: His
first nand bill distributed on the
streets had said the admission was
free. meaning only for that night."
How could the public know that he
meant only for the first night when
he did not say so?
That is the only point on - which
The Herald and News criticized him.
We submit such an advertisement
was misleading. Common sense anul
a pencil and figuring could not teli
that it was meant to charge after the
first night when the handbil! -stated
that the meeting was free to every
body and everybody was invited. We
do' not pretend that it was not legiti
mate for him to spread his tent ani
give his shows and charge for them.
but he should not come here ostensib
ly in a righttous cause. and give utter
ance to a public statement that- his
lectures were in the cause of law
and order and temperance and then
open a stereopticon show for the
purpose of making money, unless he
was placed on a par with other shows
of a similiar character. The mayor
has set the precedent and will have
to admit other shows of this charac
ter without the license.
They say that the doctor has
a good show. That may be. His
circular, which was left at this office
by Mr. I'Anson. whom the doctor
saye invited him here, gives a program
-of fourteen lectures and states that
ten of them are free and the
other four, it states, shall
a "silver offering. but nowhere
is it stated that there shall be
a certain amount taken up at the door
as an admission fce. No dloubt some
were admitted without payitng. hut
there are numerous instances where
people were tol~d they wotuld no t h
adlmitted unless they- ptut tip the nec
But the dloctor says it is "novbody's
business how much he took in. The
people got their money's worth. If
they didn't he was sorry tor the.m. he
cause they wouldn't get it back. HeI
needed it in his business." No;
doubt about this. It doesu not
take a .pencil or even a little figuring
to understand this.
He added: "Every citizen who
loves God and humanity ought to
stop quibbling and fault-finding."
This is true, too, but we have be.en
taught that Godiqoves the honest man.
-If Mr. Tracy .is, giving these shows
for the money that is in them, be
cause "he needs it, in his business."
he should come out and say so like
a man and if his show is good, as we
have been told it is. we will take
pleasure in commending him and his
show. How much money the doctor1
made is none of our business and we
do not care. We do not believe these
shows should be run on Sunday night
even if the doctor does need the mon
ey in his business. And we are tola
that was the understanding with Mr.
I'Anson and the pastors of the town
when the doctor came here. And we
have said so. We do not believe it is
right to advertise them as free and ma
the cause of temperance and then turn
them into steropticon performances
and charge for them without paying
the city license, even if the doctor does
need 'the money in his business.
That is all and we have saidl it out

The people of this colmmunity are
thrifty farmers. As a rule they do
their own work. live at home. make
some money each year and are more
independent than Vanderbilt.
Mr. William R. Hearst says that
while he is a candidate for the nomi
nation to the presidency and would
appreciate the honor. yet he is a dem
ocrat and will support the nominee
of the party at St. Louis. whosoever
he may be. We commend Mr. Hearst
f-r this pi,isition. If all wings of the
democratic party would do the same
thing there would be a good thance
for denocratic success ne.Ct Novem

democrats should do.
State Senator J. W. Ragsdale. or
Florence. has decided to enter the
race for congress against Congress
man Scarborough. He was requestea
to do so by his county convention.
Mr. Scarborough and Mr. Ragsdale
are both aggressive campaigners and
this will be an interesting race.
