TIMES ARE CHANGING.
The times and everything
else-is undergoing a change. A
few years ago, if a white man in
the South expressed views con
trary to those promilgated by
party leaders, that man was re
garded with suspicion and dis
trust. Why? Because condi
tions in the South made it an
absolute necessity for white men
to stand solidly together that our
social body might not become
contaminated. In other words
"white supremacy" had to be
preserved, and such is the con
dition today, and will continue
to be, until we have reached a
point when there will be no dan
ger of an appeal to the other
If Congress cuts down the
South's representation that ac
tion will eliminate the negro
from politics, and politicians
whose stock-in-trade is the "nig
ger-in-the-wood-pile," will not
longer be able to hold up that
scare-crow; whenever an editor
expresses convictions of politi
cal policy that sniveling politi
cians disagree with, and pro
nounce heresy, the fear of an
appeal to the negro will no lon
ger exist, and white men can di
vide on the issues, and thereby
exercise that constitutional right
as was intended by the framers
of this gov erment when they
affixed their signatures to the
declaration of independence.
We are not sure which is best
for the South, to hold our pres
ent numbers in Congress and re
main political nonenities, chain
ed to a condition which makes
us as servile to politicians as are
the serfs of Russia to the Czar's
favorites, or to join in with those
who want to cut down our rep
resentation and eliminate the
negro vote. If this vote is elimn
inated it will no longer be a
menace to us and our institutions
and we, by dividing on issues
will become as important a fac
tor in National politics as are the
Were it not for the fear of
making the negro a factor in
politics, a party organization in
the South which would throw its
electoral vote for the National
ticket offering the best induce
ments could be had, and make
itself felt in the nation. We
have been clinging to the name
Democracy because it was not
being supported by the Repub
licans, but the fact is, we were
voting to keep the white man in
control without giving the prin
ciples of either party considera
tion. The Northprn Democracy
has time and again- proved faith
less to the South, but on account
of our environments we continue
permitting ourselves to be the
"under dog" and letting our op
ponents reap the rewards. If
Congress does not eliminate the
negro vote, our only hope then,
will be to continue holding our
State governments as we are
doing now, and casting our elec
toral vote for the party which
will do the most for the South.
In the last election the South
stood solid and true, but where
was the North States? Not one
of them that amounted to any
thing did a thing, but throw
their electoral vote to McKinley,
because they believed the Re
publican party gave promise of
benefit to the North. The voter
at the North votes according to
what he considers his business
interests. He studies the prin
ciples enunciated in the party
platforms and makes his choice
like an intelligent man should
do. He is not hampered with a
fear of negro domination nor is
he tied to any political party.
Carl Schurz in 1896 advocated
the election of McKinley, be
cause he favored that candidate's
financial policy, in 1900 he op
posed McKinley and supp~orted
Bryan, because he* ( pposed~ the
policy. Schurz represents an
element that will always be in-I
fluential in national affairs, be
cause both parties will strive to
secure their support. This in
ideal condition which will come
to the South whenever there is
no danger of the negro being a
menace to white supremacy.

It is a fine children's remedy for croup and

the child becom's hoarse, or even after the
croupy cough has developed, it will prevent the
attack. This should be borne in mind and a
bottle of the Cough Remedy kept at hand ready
for instant use as soon as these symptoms ap

remarkable strides made in manufac

Among the numerous bills that
will be presented to the coming
General Assembly will be a re
newed effort to push through
what is known as the "wide tire"
bill. This bill has been intro
duced at every session for sev
eral years and so far, it has fail
ed of passage by narrow mar
gins. The Assembly is now
made up largely of new members
and we have no way of ascer
taining what the sentiment is
among them, nevertheless, we
see no need for such a bill, nor
:do we believe if the bill passes,
will it hold in the courts. It
strikes us that a law forcing peo
ple to adopt a certain width of
wheel is not only tyrannical, but
is in the interest of the wagon
manufactures who may now be
in a combination. If the wide
tire wheels are more economical
than narrow tires the p~eople
themselves will realize it without:
being forced to do so by law. Tile
argument pressing the enact
ment of wide tire legislation is
for the bettering of the roads.

Soul of WT"

A brief s.ory but it tees the talc.
be built up with wagon wheels
no matter how wide they are. If
the roads are to be built up
shovels and picks are the tools
to work with and not. wagon
tires. The past two sessions
the writer opposed the wide tire
legislation, and if the matter
comes up in the coming session
he will be found with the oppo
sition again, because he does not
think the legislature has any
more of a moral right to trample
on the rights of the people than
an individual has, and when it
undertakes to measure the width
of the tire to a man's wagon it is
carrying power beyond the rights
promised in a free country.
Yes, August Flower still has the lar
gest sale of any medicine in the civil
ized world. Your mothers and grand
mothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Bilious
ness. Doctors were scarce and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc. They
used August Flower to clean out the
system and stop fermentation of undi
gested food, regulate the action of the
liver, stimulate the nervous and organic
action of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you sat

The Cosmographic Company of
New York has recently secured
a statement from Senator Till
man, giving his views on the
future of the Democratic party.
The Senator does not think a re
organization needed. that "Bry
anism will either triumph in the
end or the republic is doomed."
The Senator attributes Bryan's
defeat to the voters being "con
tent to let well enough alone,
having an eye solely to the busi
ness aspect rather than the un
derlying principles involved in
the contest." The Senator hits
the nail on the head when he
says the voters were "content to
let well enough alone." For a
number of years a financial de
pression hung over the country
like a pall, and instead of there
coming a rift in the cloud when
a Democratic administration
came into power, the depression
became more intense and values
went below the cost of produc
tion. A change came shortly
after McKinley came into power;
whether his administration mer
its the praise, or the course of
nature, we are unable to say, but
the change lifted the black cloud
and values went up, produce of
every character brought profita
ble prices, labor was plentiful,
mines, mills and other wage
paying institutions oiled up their
machinery and went to work;
the scene shifted from a stand
still dilapidation, to hustle and
bustle. The election came on
during this prosperous state of
affairs and we do not wonder at the
masses being unwilling to "swap
in the middle of the stream";
they could feel and see the ef
fects of a prosperous condition,
and this was more of a convinc
ing argument than was the fine
spun oratory of those who will
not realize the fact that this
country is advancing in thought
and progress and,that the people
prefer things practicable to
things theoretical. It is all very
well, with dramatic gesture, to
say "Like Nelson at Trafalgar,
let us nail the colors to the mast
head and fight until the victory
is ours," but the people who
have more at stake than politi
cians are not so apt in this prac
tical age, to be swept away by
theoretical figures; what they
want is work and good prices for
the products of their toil.
