The country is being flooded with all
sorts of literature, the bumest rot we
have ever read to induce voters to vote
for certain candidates. We have too

people to believe that they will be fool

It is reported that an attempt was
made last Friday to effect a deal be

candidates, but it did nor pan our. No
candidate can deliver the votes of his

Managers of the election will do well
to call attention to the voters that they
must vote for three representatives:
should the managers come across a
ticker containing only one or two namecs

as representatives is concerned must
not be counted. The object of tL rule
is to prevent plumping. The l'r'ohibi

'There was no James H. Carlisle or

frame a true prohibition platform, but
because the platform adopted was
labeled -Prohibition,' the ministry
without a sober second thought adopted
it. Those of us who have watched the

"Now, what I have asked on every

ask is for the advocates of prohibition
here. to show us how they propose to

negro from getting it. No you wont,
when the negro finds his employer can
get it and he can't. he will go down
into the swamps and make it himself,
and while you are away from home at
court as a juror, your families are left
to the mercy of these wretches who are
crazed on "tusic liquor." They say
they will make it a misdemeanor to lie
to get it. Yes: "catching before hang

Captain Bradham was not in good
voice but he advocated the "prohibi
tion-dispensary" idea, the selling of
the State farms. biennial sessions. laid
much stress on the small amount paid
to pensioners. and contended that the
dispensary profits will not be given to
the public schools. He :aid he wanted
to go to the legislature to do something

Dr. I. M. Woods spoke of his exper
ience in the legislature and that his
previous service was of value to him,
that the delegation with which he
served had started a policy of reducing
taxation and that he thought he shouldl
be sent back to complete the work
started. He was an advocate of the
disensarv because he t'egarded it a
more practical temperance measure
than so-called prohibition. He invited
the people to look at his record, and
promised them if returned to give them
his best service. He voted for 8100,000
appropriation for free schools.
Maj. H. B. Richardson was the last
speake'r. and he started out by asking
that the justice be done him to correct
a mistake which had been made in the
report of his speech at Packsville and
published in The Farmer. He was made
to a ppear in that paper as straddling on
the liq uor question, and he did not want
to be placed in such a position. Major
Richairdson then defined his position.
which wvas a clear cut argument in
favor of the dispensary, a position he
has held the past two years to our own
knowledge. He showed that the legis
lature did for the confederate pen
sioners, just what the pensioners
through their committee asked for, and
in that matter, not being a veteran him
self he was content to follow true and
tried soldiers of the confederacy. He
hurriedly explained the amended dis
pensary law, his position on the public
schools. he voted for the $100,000 ar
propriation for the public schools and
asked for an endorsement. Major
Richardson speech was a good one, but
he had to talk rapidly as the crowd was
about tired out having listened to so
many speeches. 'Thursday night the
