If the Democrats don't . make
haste and hold a convention to nomi
nate a candidate for Governor some
Democratic editors we. know will
grow awfully wearied sitting up o'
nights with the subject,
Tire amendments to the Lea and
Dortch election bills and Myers reg
istration bill, also the Carson poll tax
bill, all passed the House last Tues
day. We believe they have also
passed the Senate, and now only
await the Governor's signature to
become laws. We will try to give
the salient points of the new election
and registration bills next week.
The Clark8ville Chronicle, one of
the oldest papers in the State, has
been scooped in by its vigorous and
younger rival, the Tobacco Leaf, and
in the county. Common gratitude
should shame 'any 'man from putting
up such a plea as our subscriber docs,
and county ' pride should . ' prompt
every citizen of the county to support
any measure which will ' benefit the
county as a whole as much as a ' few
bridges would benefit Warren county.
IS IT THE BEGINNING OF THE END?
.-.Hi i i -I- ,
We published a few weeks ago
some resolutions of Una Alliance, of
Davidson county, condemning the St.
Louis consolidation of the Farmers'
Alliance and Knights of 1 Labor.' At
a recent meeting, the Davidson Coun
ty Union passed resolutions condemn
ing the action of Una Alliance, and
recommending that' its 'charter be
revoked unless It would rescind the
resolutions. In consequence of this
action, Una Alliance on the 8th Inst.,
at a regular meeting, passed the fol
lowing preamble and resolution:
"Whereas, the Davidson County
Union, at its last meeting, showed
by its acts that it would support the
Mational Farmers' Alliance and In-
the "Tobacco Leaf-Chronicle" is now
the style of the combination, being dustrial Union in spite fits unnatur-
published both daily and semi-week- " "nij i..lr .iT? i5 inemore ,

feel assured, combine all the excel
lencies of the two.
It. sow transpired that Cate, the
Democratic Congressman from Ar
kansas, was unseated, not by Repub
lican votes, but by the absence from
the House of Democrats when the
vote on the case was taken, some
twelve or fifteen Democratic Con
gressmen being in New. iYork on a
frolic' t'A: number of Republican
members absented themselves from
the house on that day purposely to
let the Democrats defeat the move to
seat Featheratone, but the Democrats,
careless of their, party's interest and
of their country's interest, out
did the Republicans in the absentee
business, and lost one seat they might
just as well have retained. These
Congressmen should be made to suf
fer for this carelessness in the elec
tions next fall. ...

"The Rorxn Tahle," Nashville's
new literary venture, has reached its
second ' number, and will hereafter
appear regularly every Saturday. It
consists of 1G large pages, printed
with good clear type, and the current
number contains interesting articles
from several able contributors. The
and considering the quality of read
ing matter given, it Is quite reason'
able. It is not expected that all
readers will concur in all opinions ex
pressed in the Round Table, as we
believe its purpose Is to open its col
umns to(various views of religion,
politics, science, art, literature, etc.
The South should support its own
literary productions, and we hope
the Round Table will receive a large
and sustaining patronage.

farmers requires us to no . loneer act

Thus begins a breach in the F. &
L. Union which will no doubt widen
as the days go by, as others will in
all probability follow the lead of Una
Alliance. The farmers are fast find
ing out that there is much political
trickery and.jdemagogueism at the
fountain head of both the Alliance
and the Knights of Labor, and par
ticularly so in the St. Louis consoli
dation. The men who are at the
head of both organizations, as a rule,
are slick political tricksters, who care
nothing for the real interests of the
farmer. They are working them
principally for boodle. Farmers, la
borers, nor any other class, have any
thing to gain by third party political
rganizations. The political destinies
of this country are in the hands of
the two parties, Democratic and Re
publican, and the political supremacy
of any party must be built upon the
wreck of one or the other of the old
parties. Farmers should actively
participate in political and party mat
ters, but they 'should do It through
the legitimate party organizations.
All attempts to control iHlities
through other organizations have
failed in the past, and will continue
to fail in the future. The farmers
are strong enough to control their
party conventions and other machin
ery it they will tlo it boldly and
above board, but when they attempt
to tfork political wires through the
medium of an alleged agricultural
organization, they will "come out at
the little end of the horn," and lipd
themselves much worsted by the ef

Chattanooga Times: The Chicago
Tribune and the Times or the same
cityA-ant the World's Fair postponed
to 1893. Each of these influential
newspapers asks that Congress put up
$10,000,000 for the fair, against a like
sum to be raised by Chicago. It now
looks very much as If the prelimina
ries of the enterprise woulij not be
settled before midsummer. It Is
simply demonstrated that Chicago
cannot raise the necessary money, no
matter what date the exposition is
put upon. Altogether the outlook is
not at all reassuring to those who
have so enthusiastically talked of
Chicago's ability to do anything,
however big, in "a pair pf minutes."

A subscriber writing from Luckey,
says in substance, that the capitalists
and business ' men of McMinnville
snouia put up the money to uuiui a
couple 1 of good ' iron bridges near
town, and closes his letter with the
protest, 'hut we do and will object to
having our hard-earned and scarce
dollars go tor the almost entire hene-
fit of McMinnville people."
If the selfish principle of each sec
tion of the county caring for its own
interests should be applied to all
county affairs, the outlying districts
would all be very badly leu. lt us
take the matter of school money for
instance. Last "year 'the 1st civil
district, embracing McMinnville,
was assessed for school nurnoses
something ovr Vf0, and received
frm . the school apportionments
$2,247. .; Thus it will be seen that this
district paid into the school fund
about $1,250 more than it ' received
The Ilth civil district paid , into, the
school fund $400, and received from
it $700. The -11th -district, it will
be seen, received $.100 ' more school
money than it' paid, and ' the 1st
district furnished this excess. ' Every
other district In the county,
the 1st, receives more schcol
than it pays, and the excess comes
out of tha 1st drlstrict. And county
taxation for all other purposes1 runs
in the same ratio.' It comes In very
bad taste for a citizen of any outside
district to object 1 to hrldge taxation
on the ground that it will benefit
than any other

of his sweetheart, Miss Ova Davis, in

to order an expert examination of the
