Liberty Herald: The Alliance gov
ernors of Georgia and South Carolina
have spoken out against the sub
treasury scheme, but up to this time
Tennessee's governor has talked
about it like oysters and clams talk
about Sunday. Governor Uuchanan
is evidently in full sympathy with
the whole subitreasury movement
but he knows full well that he cannot
talk too much and ride democratic
horses at the same time.
Columbia Herald: It does not mat
ter much whether Mr. Uuchanan is
for or against tho government awner
ship of railroads, street cars,telegrap
lines and sub-treasury fallacies. Cer
tain it is that he has not the courage
of his convictions, and a man who
has no more force of character than
that is too little a man to fill the Gov
ernor's chair of Tennessee.
