alienate children f2ma thir parems,
and force the home into a sense of
strife, rebellion and wretchedness."
The Bible says a great deal about
obedience to parent. and reverence
for parents and., believing in that
Book and its teachings as strongly as
I do, I say to the parents, tor the sake
of their children, our country and for
the future, keep within your own con
trol the rearing and education of your
own children, and strike down by your
ballot every effort to deprive you of
the same. Our people fight force bills
in congress and they had better fight
this one at home.
(e) I am opposed to the higher edu
cation of the negro race, and in fav
or of the taxes paid by white people
going to and being used only for the
education of the white children.
(f) I am in favor of a strict enforce
ment of the vagrancy laws.
(g) I am in favor of a law requir
ing either a marriage certificate or
the registration of all marriages iii

the county in which the marring

2 1-2 cents per mile on railroads in
this State, but am opposed to the
rules now in fore on the railroads as

(i) I am in favor of good roads,
good morals, and honest governineni.
(j) As to the wniskey qution. I
am satisfied that the people of th&
State are tired of the agitation along
this line. I favor local option, and, tu
c-der to be strictly Democradle and
allcw self-government and honerule,
I favor extending the present jaw, so
as to allow a county to have hicense,
if the mapority of her whit1 citizens
-vish it, as other counties hava dis
j.ensary or prohibition. Ho.v-r,, if
?i tnse is voted, I favor the most rig
orous enforce-ut oi ,ne sie it) the
s.le in this manner, pr-!iing under
any circumstances, any whiskey being
sold in less quantities than one-half
pint, or between sunset and sunup,
and prohibit it from being drunk on
the premises, or being sold, under any
circumstances, to minors or inebriates,
or behind closed doors or screens, pro
hibiting any obscene pictures on the
premises, or any billiard or pool rooms
connected therewith, and providing
that any person holding a license who
shall violate any provison of the law
shall violate any provision of the law
forfeit his license and be forever
thereafter barred from being licensed,
and in addition be imprisoned at hard
labor in the State penitentiary with
out the alternative of a fine. I am ab
solutely opposed to the old bar-room
system and would under no circum
stances sign a bill to reinstate that
(k) I am opposed to any law re
stricting the rights of Democrats to
vote in the primary elections, other
than is provided for in the rules adopt
ed by the State convention, which
provides as follows: "That no white
man shall be excluded from partici
pation in the Democratic primary who
shall take the pledge required by the
rules of the Democratic party, and
.whose name has been enrolled on the
Democratic club list five days before
the primary election, and who is
otherwise qualified under the consti
tution and rules of the Democratic
party to- vote in the primary elec
tion." The oath referred to is as
follows: "I do solemnly swear that
I am duly qualified to vote at this elec
tion according to the rules of the Dem
ocratic party, and that I have not vot
ed before at this election, and pledge
myself to support the nominees of this
primary." Rule 2 provides that no
person shall be permitted to vote un
less he has been enrolled on a club
list at least five days before the pri
mary election, and unless he has been
a resident of the State one year, and
of the county in which he seeks en
rollment 60 days preceding the next
general election. It is, therefore,
seen that the claptrap, so-called argu
ment that people are allowed to vote
in the primary elections who have
only been in the county for a few days
or in the State for a short time is ab
solutely unfounded and unwarranted,
because these provisions which I have
cited make it absolutely imperative
that in order to vote in the primary
one shall have been in the State one
year and in the county 60 days pre
ceding the general election, and this
4 absolutely prevents any man from
voting in the primary election who
is what is commonly called a floater.
In my opinion, this is amply strong,
and any law passed by the legislature
further abridging the right of suffrage
in the primary would be vetoed by
me immediately if I were governor.
(1) I am -in favor of running the
government on a liberal, but not ev
travagant basis, (as is now being
done) and in making our tax levy
both county and State, as low as pos
sible for a safe and economical man
agement of our financial affairs; and
of reducing expenses. abolishing use
less positions, stodping extravagant
appropriations for any purpose, stop
ping the useless expenditure of money
by officials, stopping the creation of
useless offices, and all other methods
of reckless, careless or useless ex
penditure of money that causes an in
crease in the tax levied upon our
people, for our taxes are too high.
and our people are now too heavily
burdened with taxation.
I fully believe that the grandest,
most perfect and most independeLit
form of government is a poor govern
ment and a rich people. When you
make a rich government, and thereby
ifiproverish the people, or make a
poor people, . you reverse Democracy
and create dissatisfaction and discon
tent among the people, who are the
masters and not the ser gants, as some
would have us thling:. For me,. ginE
me a poor government and a rich peo
ple, in place of a ria government anu
a poor people for the nmera moniey tb t
you give your legislatare the control
of. the more exrra':nvmI W 1 h f
appropriations and expenditures. U -
der our present management the idea
seems to be to raise the tax levy hiigh~
er, making assessments higher. ma
more extravaganit appropriations, andl
spend the people's money useless'y,
making both the people and the gov
ermeont poor. for the benefit of a few,
vho lold nolic nosmons and zr z

create an aristocracy, not of blood, s
not of brains, but of money. ti
(m) I am in favor of the constitu- a
tional amendment to be voted upon:
in the general election providing for P
a fifth justice of the supreme court,
and in favor of making the decision a
of the supreme court in any case the 9
final disposition of that particular
case in so far as the State courts are
concerned, unless that court itself 14
shall for good and sufficient legal rea
sons afterwards brought to its atten
tion change its decision. Trifling with Y
the courts, as is now being done, b
should be stopped. And in order to
bring this about I am in favor of such c
laws being passed as may be neces- p
sary, even if it require a constitu- s
tional amendment. t
(n) I am in favor of all laws thatv
will favor and protect labor in all its S
legitimate callings and endeavors, and S
such laws that will protect capital in e
all its lawful investments, and the ]
good old Democratic doctrine. "Equal
rights to all and special privileges to ,
none" in each branch of the govern- a
ment and particularly in the enforce
ment of all laws.
I have been advocating these prin- n
ciples for years in the house, in the
senate and on the stump in my home ti
county and throughout the State, and h
have stood squarely upon them out in n
the open and never waited to see
which would be the popular side be-,
fore taking a stand. Even when some A
of them were very unpopular and it I
seemed that any man who dared ad- Ij
vocate them was doomed to political a
I oblivion I stood by them and made the t,
fight to keep them up and begged the b
people not to be deceived, but to hear p
me for my cause, and now we see b
some who did not stand for them, or i
who, if they did were afraid to ac
knowledge it, endeavoring to push me b
off my platform and yelling to the s
people that they and Betsey killed e
the bear and that they are the logical t
candidate. If there be a logical can- b
didate upon these principles or upon i
a financial platform for a more econo- t
mical form of government, and for re- a
duction in appropriations and a busi- ,
ness man's administration, I submit
to you, the people, that I am the man, e
standng upon my past record as can- f
didate, legislator and citizen. I beg to C
call your attention to the fact that two N
years ago I received forty two thous- c
and and one hundred votes for this t
From the information that I have t
received I am satisfied that I will be
elected and if so, I promise you a fair i
and impartial administration of all the e
dutes of the office and in so far as my e
power lies a reduction in expenses
and an honest enforcement of what- p
ever laws may now be upon your f
statute books, or may be placed there
