FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1901.
Harrison tiled at his home in
Indianapolis Wednesday aft
ernoon. The bill to repeal the char
ter of Bolivar has parsed sec
ond reading in both Houses
and has been recommended
by committees in both Hous
es for passage.
Mrs. Caiikik Nation, the
Kansas saloon smasher, has
embarked in the newspaper
business at Topeka. The
name of her paper is the
"Smasher's Mail." Her pub
lisher is a negro.
had a close call Saturday.
While duck hunting, far out
on the Virginia coast, a storm
arose, but the sport was fine
and he refused to leave his
"blind." It was late in the
evening when he reached the
shore, and the small boat he
occupied came uncomfortably
near being swarmped. He
landed safely, however, and
brought in sixty ducks, which
he expressed that night to his
wife in Princeton. This is
not the first storm Grover
Cleveland has weathered.
Good luck and long life to
Hardeman being purely an
agricultural county, it be
hooves her citizens to take
an active interest in any laud
able undertaking, calculated
to promote agriculture. The
Bulletin believes that the
Hardeman County Farmers'
Institute has accomplished
much good along this lijie
and that its future usefulness
is destined to be greater. A
meeting of this Institute will
be held in Bolivar to-morrow
(Saturday) and we hope the
attendance will be large.
Every farmer in Hardeman
County is most cordialty in
vited to be present.
The bill reported by the
redisricting committee as to
Congressional Districts was
taken up in the Senate Wed
nesday and so amended as to
keep Hardeman in the Tenth.
The committee recommenda
tion was that it be changed to
the Eighth. The amendment
was adopted by a vote ot 1 to
10, and the bill as amended
was passed. We hope the
amendment will be agreed to
by the House. A majority
of the Democrats of Harde
man are content to remain in
the Tenth, and for the good
of the party it should be al
lowed to remain there.
Before the adjournment of
the Legislature there are at
least two measures that should
be passed a law to protect
sheep from the ravages of
dogs, and a law to regulate
and govern primary elections.
There is a general demand
throughout Tennessee for
the passage of these laws,
and the members of the Leg
islature, the representatives
of the people, cannot help
being aware of the fact.
With proper protection, the
sheep industry can and will
be made one of the most val
uable and profitable in the
State. Men who for years
have followed it, and who re
luctantly were forced to aban
don it on account of the rav
ages of the dog, will reengage
in the business. And where
is the man, and what sensi bit
reason can he advance for ob
jecting to legalizing primary
elections? Concerning this
matter, the Chattanooga
Times of recent date truth
"Nothing of a political na
ture pending before the Leg
islature is of more importance
than this. The Democratic
party of the State has been
drifting into factionalism in
almost every important coun
ty, all because the people feel
that they are not allowed in
the smallest degree to have
a part in the selection of
their public officials. The
mass convention and prima
ry is a relic that ought to bn
relegated. The only sane
and legitimate method for se
lecting delegates and nomi
nating public officials is by
vote of all the people. When
that method is adopted the
stay-at-homes, the lnditier
ent and the would be reform
ers would be estopped from
eventing any further trouble.

Cleveland and Hill on Democracy.
Baltimore, March 11.
The Crescent Democratic
Club, one of the leading po
litical organizations of this
city, celebrated its twenty
ninth anniversary to-night.
The occasion was rendered
more than ordinarily inter
esting by the receipt of let
ters from former President
Grover Cleveland and former
United States Senator Da
vid B. Hill.
Mr. Cleveland, after ex
pressing a regret that he
could not be present, says:
All the present signs of tbe times
indicate most impressivly the neces
sity of increased activity and aggres
siveness in the rank of Democracy.
There were days when Democratic
principles, advocated in Democratic
fashion, gave guarantee of Demo
cratic supremacy or at least,
strength and influence in our nation's
councils. Why should there not be
a return of those days?
The answer to this question is
not found in less applicability than
formerly of Democratic doctrine to
present conditions. On the contra
ry, there never was a time when
they were more needed to cure evils
which afflict our body politic, and
there never was a time when our
countrymen would be more willing
to account Democracy as they once
knew it as a safeguard against exist
ing and threatening ills.
I am convinced, however, that if
our party is to gain its old prestige,
and become a strong and vigorous
organization, feared by its enemies,
and inspiring the active devotion of
its rank and file, it must, first of all
things, itself become truly, hosently
and consistently Democratic.
Mr. Hill, in his letter, said:
In this time of dire defeat,
when the shouts ot the victorious
hosts of plutocracy, commercialism
and imperialism at their recent in
augural festivities at the national
capital are still ringing in our ears,
we should remember that the dark
est hour is often times just before
the dawn of day.
I am sure that a majority of the
American electorate will not be sat
isfied with the continued rule of
radicalism, extravagance and cor
ruption. But we must not deceive
ourselves. The people will not re
store the Democratic party to pow
er unless they are satisfied that we
will give them better government
than our opponents. The people
waut a safe and conservative admin
istration of public affairs. There
must be no question of our inten
tion to fearlessly maintain the na
tional credit under any and all cir
cumstances. We must not permit
our opponents to put as in a false
position as the enemies of public or
der. Labor and capital should be
respected, but neither should be un.
necessarily assailed. Opposition to
dangorous corporate combinations
should be allowed to degenerate in
to indiscriminate attacks upon char
We should conciliate rather than
antagonize the great business inter
ests of the country, and this can
easily be accomplished without the
surrender of a single essential paTty
Roll of Honor.

Dangerous Trend of Politics.

Washington, March 10.---4Any
lover of a Democratic form of gov
ernment,"; said Honorable John
Dougherty this morning, before
starting for his Clay County home,
'eannot but view with" forebodings
and apprehension the trend of Amer
ican politics. To the man or poli

King, aii Emperor or a Czar, the
new vogue may be all right, but 'o

followed and believed iu the doc

"Ever since the struggle between
Republicanism and FederaVsm, ever
since the time when some men be
lieved in a government by and for
the people, and some in a rule by

hearts of some Americans. To-day
that fire has burst into lambient

the aristocracy as advocated by Ham

His Information False.
Jackson, March 10. J. F. Hous
er, editor of the Adamsville Times,
during tbe heat of the political cam
paign last fall published some para
graphs charging that Hon. E. L
Bullock and Judge McCorry of this
city had participated in and been
parties to ballot-box btuffing in Mad
ison County for the past twenty
years. The allegations were of a
most sweeping nature. Mr. Bui
lock appeared before the grand ju
ries of Madison, McNairy and Hen
derson Counties and bad indict
ments returned, charging Houser
with criminal libel. The first of
these indictments came up the past
week at Selmer, in McNairy Coun
ty. Houser appeared and plead
guilty to the charge, stating that
his information had been based on
rumors, which on investigation he
had found to be false. He offered
to make reparation by publicly ac
knowledging the falsity of his
charges through his own paper,
and requesting other papers of the
district to do likewise. It is very
likely that the indictments against
Houser will be dismissed by Mr.
One Hundred Years Ago.
Thomas Jefferson was inaugurat
ed President of the United States
100 years ago to-day. It is not
true that he was a plain Virginia
farmer any more than it is true that
he hitched his horse to a picket
fence and left the animal standing
there while he went in to take the
Thomas Jefferson was a well
dressed, rather dignified and some
what aristocratic country gentle
man of tbe old school, and the last
man in the world who would have
been taken in those days as a repre
sentative of the common people.
Ie had won the presidency after j
one of the most bitter and in many
espects one of the most brutal per
sonal contests the country has ever
known, but Burr never thought of
charging Jefferson with being a
riend of the masses."
The young republic was neither
prosperous, happy nor contented in
the early days of March, 1801.
There was pessimism in the air.
Forebodings as to the future of the
American "experiment at democra
cy'' . were felt on all fides. The
United States had neither standing
nor credit abroad. Her ships were
plundered at the pleasure of England
and France, her representatives
There were people of intelligence
everywhere who felt that the repub
lic could not last. They were not
able to say why exactly, but they
seemed to think that somehow or
other it couldn't. It must sooner or
later seek the protection of one o!
the then great powers. .But the re
public survived all tbe croakers who
at regular intervals predicted calam
ity for it. And, again, it survived
the bloodiest civil war of modern
On the whole, the outlook for the
American democracy was a hundred
times more gloomy 100 years ago
than it Ms to-day. Whatever the
pessimists may think or say to-day,
there are few of them who will go
far as to assert that the Govern
raent is in any immediate danger.
There are fewer who will contend,
as many contended during Jeffer
son's administration, that democra
cy is a fallacy and that republican
ism is a delusion. We are going on
from administration to administra
tion, from decade to decade, gaining
in confidence, hope and strength as
And it is worthy of mention, per
haps, that with the increasing
strength of the people and the in
creasing power of their government,
not a solitary individual right that
the Americau citizen was able to as
sume at the beginning has thus far
been denied, abridged or isolated.
There is more freedom, more real
liberty, to-day in the United States
than ever before, and there are wid

than ever for the American people.
