The Republican County Executive
Committee and the Marietta Republi
can Club are considering: the feasibility
jf using the same headquarters. The
plan appears to bo a good one, as the
club room would thereby be kept open
continuously during the campaign.
The action of the Marietta Republi
can Club in making everybody wel-inr-o
is in marked contrast to
the organization of the Bryan
Democratic Club a few weeks ago,
l,on Hvpn reDorters were invited to
"go down stairs." The comparative
.ttonrinnce at the two meetings was
about 1(5 to 1 in favor of the Republi
cans. Our dear, deluded brother of the
Times appears to be somewhat rattled
by what he saw and heard at the big
Republican meeting at the uourt House
Tuesday night. Ho belongs to those
-who would have the public believe that
there is not an honest money Mclun
ley Republican in all the city of Marl
etta. but finds his arguments along
that line slipping away like the sands
of the seashore before the tide.
The work of taking signatures for
the Marietta Republican Club went on
rapidly Wednesday and before the close
of the day more than fifty new names
had been added to the roll. The mem
bership of the club will exceed 200 this
-week and before the campaign is far
advanced over 500 loyal Republicans
will be marchimr in its ranks. The
Bize and enthusiastic nature of the or
ganization is a stunning surprise to our
Democratic frieuds and sufficient cause

THE MOORE BROS.
They Expect Such rinnnclal Assistance
From the East as Will Pull Them
Through Their Troubles.
Chicago, Ang. fi. The Moore Bros,
expect from the east such financial
help as will enable them to pull
through the Diamond Match and New
York Biscuit crisis in their business
career, and allow the opening of the
stock exchange in a few days. J. G.
Moore brought back with him from the
east Monday certain assurances and
promises of eastern bankers on which
lie bases the hopes of the firm for as
sistance to a large amount in caring
for the match stock.
On the plea that the statement of the
Moores' account for the guidance of
the government committee of the stock
exchange, and city banks was not
ready but really to allow of certain
telegraphic correspondence to pass be
tween the firm anil their eastern back
ers, the meeting of the governing body
which was set Tuesday for the noon
hour, was postponed to three o'clock,
when a complete and satisfactory
statement is promised.

The Natives Were Highly Entertained by
a Hand Organ.
Capt. Becker, n ISclglnn explorer in
Africa, and an official of tho Congo
Free State, understands the negro char
acter very well, and has hit upon a
pleasant and effective means of influ
encing the natives. He caused to bo
Imported from Europe a good and loud
hand-organ, arid played it before tho
blacks. He even allowed some of tho
most trusty 'of the blacks themselves
to turn the crank.
The natives were wild with delight.
They gathered from far and near to
hear tho new machine. They regarded
it as something supernatural, but not
to ho-dreaded or feared as something
to bo venerated instead.
To change barbarous 'habits, 'Capt.
Becker litis taicorag:cd the cclelrratio'n
of Christian marriages nmongtho na
tives; and as they .were somewhat'
averse to this civilized procedure, ho
announced that the hand-organ should
be played at every Christian marriage,
as a compliment to the bride and
As soon as this announcement was
made, tho bridal couples began to ar
rive at the station in considerable num
bers. Scarcely a day passed without n
wedding. Before long all the native
men of marriageable age were lawfully
married, and by this means were
brought to some extent within the
range of civilizing influences.
Indeed, the marriages increased to
such an extent that Capt. Becker be
gan to suspect that soma of his couples
were being married the second time.
This was the case; and precautions had
to be taken to prevent this sort of
trifling with a'sacred,cereTnony.
The hand-organ is used for certain
other important ceremonies; hut the
captain takes care that it is not brought
outt'so often as to permit of the negroes
growing too familiar with it. If tills
were permitted it would lose its "charm
and extraordinary influence.
There is one air in particular with
which tho blacks are especially de
lighted. It is an air from the.opera.of
"La Travlata," by Verdi. They listen
to this as if their senses were en
thralled and their souls uplifted. They
seem'to show in this a genuine musical
sense, for tho music of "La Travlata"
is of tlie purest and most beautiful sort.
On all ordinary occasions, this cher
ished tune is "skipped" by the nstnlc
operator of the hand-organ, and re
served for the special gratification of
tho people at the most solemn cere
monies. It is not improbable that this instru
ment, of a kind deemed tedious and ob
jectionable in civilized countries, may
exert a mo3t beneficent influence )n
