The State Democratic Executive
Committee held a meeting at the
Maxwell House in Nashville last
Friday. There was a general dis
cussion of party interests, and the
following resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, that the county Demo
cratic executive committees be re
quested to take such steps as they
think necessary to organize the
Democratic party in the respective
counties before the' opening of the
campaign in 1892.
Be it resolved, that the present
Democratic members of Congress,
both Senators and Representatives,
and all ex-members now resident
within the State be, and they are
hereby requested to make a list of
appointments, and forward the same
to this committee, naming the times
and places when it will be convenient
for them to address the people of
Tennessee upon current political is
sues; that when such lists are furnish
ed, the Chairman and Secretary of
this committee are directed to pub
lish the appointments through the
Democratic press of the State over
their official signatures; and
Whereas, the past experience of the
party has demonstrated that joint
discussions between members of the
same political faith upon issues con
cerning which the party is more or
less divided only tends to alienate
and fix preconceived opinions, rather
than to convince or reconcile existing
differences; therefore, be it
Resolved, that no appointments be
made or accepted by the Chairman
and Secretary for joint debates be
tween Democrats, and that such a
practice Is hereby disapproved and
intended to be discouraged, bo far as
it is in the power of the committee to
It is plain to be seen from the last
resolution above that the State Com
mute wants to continue the cowardly
clam policy of last year. Had John
II. McDowell been allowed to dic
tate the action of the Committee, he
could have written nothing better
suited to his notion than that last
resolution. The spirit of McDowell
certainly must have hovered in every
space of the committee rocm during
the deliberations of the body. Mc
Dowell and the horde of little Al
liance lecturers who label themselves
Democrats, yet go over the State de
faming the party and its leaders, and
who are doing everything in their
power to disrupt Democratic organi
zation, could not ask a greater favor
of the committee than to be shielded
from open discussions with Demo
crats. The Democratic party has nothing
to fear from joint discussions. It
matters not what men label them
selves, if they go about preaching
doctrines inimical to the best interests
of the Democratic party, and this
means the best interests of the whole
I people, they should be met on the
stump by men whose Democracy is
unquestioned, and the heresies re
futed before they have time to find
lodgment in the minds of the people.
This recommendation of the com
mittee will doubtless give McDowell
and his coterie of supporters much
comfort, but their joy will be brief,
for the majority of the Democrats of
the State will not endorse such a
cringing, shirking, cowardly policy,
and there are enough bold, manly
Democrats like Henry Snodgrass to
make trouble for them every time
one pokes up his head, and they will
A Change In the Weather.
The person who can predict a
change in the weather by means of
his aches and pains may be very in
teresting to his neighbors as a walk
ing barometer, but the position he
occupies is riot an enviable one. He
needs a course of S. S. S. to make his
bones and his joints weather-proof.
Rheumatism cannot stand before the
attacks of this wonderful blood puri
fier. There is no other remedy that
proven so efficacious in curing this
disease as S. S. S. The testimonials
to this effect cannot be gainsaid.
They speak for themselves. To test
the matter would not be a costly ex
periment to the sufferer, and it nn
experment that will surely bring relief.
