Democrats are not alarmed
You cant scare a Democrat
Hopkins is sure to go Democratic
by at least 800 But the boys
need exercise so the boys are
ordered out to encourage the
strong strengthen the weak and
reclaim the erring All approve
of the course The more speak
ers they send the easier it will
be for the Republicans to suc
ceed In 1810 they sent every
man and woman that they could
get fdr love or money although
the Democrats have no boodle
out in the highways and hedges
to increase the majority but the
majority did not increase Some
thing was wrong that they could
not account for What was the
matter Why the blasted Re
publicans stole the election
In 1890 they said they Would see
to it that if any stealing was done
they would be the ones to do it
Once more the old guard
was ordered to the front With
drums beating and colors flying
they again entered the field and
proceeded to demolish the Re
publicans But they would not
be demolished and on the morn
ing of the election came to the
front and with a quiet smile pro
ceeded to smash the Democratic
slate and now the conflict is rag
ing again But this time the
Democrats say the Republicans
have made a fatal mistake in
nominating Mr Lynch for Con
gress and proceed to show that
there are not as many Republi
cans and Brown Democrats to
gether as there are Republicans
alone which is just as logical as
saying that five added to nine
only makes eight We doubt
their sincerity It always seemed
to us that the more mistakes our
opponents make the better it is
for us A loG CABIN VOTER

of the two great parties and pointed

welfare of the American people Mr
Chambers made a good impression
upon our people and was frequently
applauded After the speaking
