The Cleveland Plain Dealer says,
we believe that Cleveland and Thur

Hendricks, in 1884, and have more

The Birmingham Age says the Re
publican papers are doing a great deal
of talk now-a-days about the assess

is, we don't believe either party cares

OOL. JONES A CANDIDATE.
Authorltntlyo Announoomont. Ho
Will Run forOongroBB.
Speculation has been rite for many
days past in regard to the possible
candidacy of Col. E. A. Jones for
congress from the 9th Congressional
District 011 an Independent ticket. The
News is enabled to say this afternoon
that Col. Jones is such a candidate,
and will make the race as an Inde
pendent against Hon. Roger Q. Mills.
Col. Jones has had the matter, which
has been pressed upon him by the op
position in all parts of the district,
under advisement for some days. The
pressure has been so great that he
could not lesist it, and he has decided
to enter the political arena, in de
ference to a demand from the opposi
tion to Mills, a demand singularly
unanimous. If an Independent is to
run, as has been almost a foregone
conclusion for many months, Waco,
without regard to political sentiment,
must feel gratified that the opposition
in the eight counties composing the
district have centered on a Waco man
for a contest which would seem utter
ly hopeless without a man of extra
ordinary strength to make the race.
It is a compliment alike to the man
and to the city.
As to the nature ofhe contest it
may be said that the majority in tvora
of Mr. Mills was over 7000 at the last
election when the fiercest opposition
was arraigned for his defeat and as to
the possibility of overcoming that ma
jority, there is a field for full specula
tion afforded the opposition. As to
Col. Jones himself, he is a man of
most eminent ability, and in character
sans peur et sans itproche, and will
crystalize the opposition to a man.
The Maine election takes place on
Monday next the 10th instant. Wil
liam L. Putman is the Democratic
candtdate for Governor and E. C.
Burleigh the Republican. It is said
that Chairman Joseph Manley, of the
Republican committee, a noted mana
ger, is working harder than in 1884,
when Blaine was running for Presi
dent. In 18S4, Robie, the Republi
can candidate for Governor, received
a plurality of over 19,000 votes, and,
of course, if the Republican plurality
on Monday falls short of these figures
a practical victory must be conceded
to the Democrats.
