It appears that the Farmer's Al
liance is not content to stop at an
abortive attempt to control political
matters, but is going to carry the
fight into the church also. The Duck
River Baptist Association met at
County Line Church, on the line of
Bedford and Moore counties, last
Friday. The Alliance, or certain Al
liance members of the Association,
demanded an official endorsement of
their politico-religo-agriculturalo clan
irom the Association, which was
strenuously objected to bya portion of
the body, whereupon the Association
was split in twain, and two assocla
tions were formed. The anti-Alli
ance branch retained the books and
records of the Association. Wo are
informed that this was one of the
strongest Baptist associations in this
section of the Slate.

Robbers held up a train on the
Missouri Pacific Railroad, near Tip
ton, Mo., last Saturday night, and
made a haul on the express car, se
curing considerable jewelry and
money. The press dispatches place
the cash taken by the robbers at $75,
000, other property at $15,000. The
Superintendent of the express com
pany says that $74 was all the money
the robbers secured. The -scene of
this robbery is known as "Robber's
Cut," both the James gang and
the Younger brothers having held up
and robbed trains at the same point.
As train crews seem to be powerless
to prevent these outrages, it will now
be in order for the express companies
to have heavy safes built in their
cars, and fitted with time locks, and
passenger coaches might also be pro
vided with similar compartments to
receive the cash ana other valuables
of passengers while enroute.
Lewis T. Baxter, the Republican
nominee for Governor in this State,
wrote a letter to Geo. W. Davidson,
a prominent Republican of Tullaho

Now isn't it a little peculiar how
some people are loudest in denunci
ations of the very sins of which they
are themselves guilty? Baxter had
repeatedly denounced the force bill
in unmeasured terms. The Republi
can convention of Tennessee gave the
force bill almost a unanimous en
dorsement and then nominated Bax
ter on the platform. By the "whip

other political moss-backs of that par

to.toe the mark and swallow the plat

The Tennessee weather-crop bulle
tin for the week ending Aug. 16th,
contains the following with regard to
the corn crop :
"The gentle rains whjch were gen
erally well distributed, and supple
menting those of the week previous,
have proved very beneficial to the
growing and maturing crops in Ten
nessee, and reports from all sections
of the state indicate a very healthy
improvement in those, crops which
had suffered so much from the drouth,
and a generally favorable condition
In all growing products. Late corn
is the crop perhaps most benefited.
While the relief came rather late, it
has proved a wonderful help to the
proper development of the crop, and
it bids fair, with favorable weather
to make a good yield. Early corn in
the drouth-stricken districts Is very
short. A3 a result of rains following
the drouth smut has. developed to
great extent in many places, and in
some fields not lessthan one-fourth
the crop is affected."

The Manchester Times is poking
up the Trustee of Coffee county with
a sharp stick. The Times says it has
been common talk for several months
that the Trustee is behind. Accord
ing to the finance committee's report
he should have several thousand dol
lars of school money in his hands,
and yet the public (school teachers
have to discount their warrants 15 per
cent. The Times should keep up the
fight until the Trustee shows his
hand. That is one of the things
newspapars are for to keep public
officials in the path of rectitude.

Buchanan will draw larger audiences
than either Baxter or Kelley. Dem

for Republican Speakers long enough
to hear both sides of all questions,

it means that the Democratic candi

spectable white men while the Re
publicans will speak to a small
and motley audience of negroes and
cheap whites in which only a very
few decent, respectable gentlemen
can be found. They kuow this, but

Washington, Aug. 18, 1890.
Will Mr. Harrison dare to jump into
the breech in his party in the Senate?
Ie has been asked, aye begged, by
Senator Hoar, who recently . expres
sed himself as preferring to see every
manufactory In New England in
ashes and the mechanics reduced to
50 cents a day and a diet of cod-fish
than to see the failure of the Force
bill, and his associate to come to
the rescue. Mr. Harrison favors the
Election bill, and ever since his elec
tion he has bitterly hated Kenator
Quay on account of the patronizing
manner with which he treated his
highness ; therefore if he did as he
would like to, he would throw
the weight of his influence, which
isn't very, heavy after all, against
Mr. Quay ; but he hesitates, because
lie fears that Mr. Quay may succeed
n having hi3 resolution shelving the
Force bill and appointing August 30
as the day for taking the vote on the
ariff bill adopteed by the Senate.
Can Mr. Quay get his resolution
passed? To what extent will the
democrats support it ? It now looks
as If the first question might be an
swered in the affirmative, and that
the democrats in a body will support
the Quay resolution ; not because
they endorse it, but because they rec
ognize in it a weapon to whack more
than half of the republican party
over the head. The democrats would
much prefer continuing the debate
on the tariff bill, for that debate is
making hundreds of democratic vo
ters every day, but if Quay should be
defeated he and his followers would
probably be willing to vote with the
rest of the republicans to adopt a gag
rule and pass both the tariff and
Election bills. Senator Vest says the
tariff bill is worse than the Election
