At present, there are three
candidates for the democratic
nomination for Governor of
Tennessee Judge John C.
Ferris, of Nashville ; Hon.
J. B. Frasier, of Chattanoo
ga ; Judge "W. II. Swiggart,
of Union City. Concerning
the latter, the Nashville Am
erican, of Sunda3T, says :
"Judge Swiggart is a demo
crat of the truest type and
with a clean personal and
political record. Those who
know him best admire him
most. While devoted to his
judicial duties, in the dis
charge of which he has won
an enviable reputation for his
knowledge of law, soundness
of judgment, courage, impar
tiality and that cold neutral
ity which so well becomes
the Judge, he has always
manifested a patriotic and
intelligent interest in politi
cal affairs and public ques
tions, lie is a speaker and
forceful debater, displaying
an earnestness and energy
which his quiet and modest
demeanor does not indicate.
No man in Tennessee is more
incorruptible, more coura
geous or animated by a higher
sense of duty than Judgt
Swiggart. Without cham
pioning his candidacy The
American can say that Judge
Swiggart would make a most
excellent Chief Executive of

nesota. it will be remem
bered that Mr. Towne as
pired to be a running mate
of Mr. Bryan last year, and
was nominated for vice-presi
dent by the Populists and
Silver Republicans on the
ticket with Mr. Br van. He
it was, who said in a speech,
delivered on the floor of the
House of Representatives,
that "free silver was the sal
vation of the country; that
the gold standard meant only
blood and sweat." In an in
terview a few daysago, Mr
Towne "comes down the
tree." and savs : "Free sil-
ver, as an issue, is absolutely
dead. I do not believe it will
be mentioned in the demo
cratic platform or campaign
Governor McMillin him
self says he will not be a
candidate for re-election to a
third term. Perhaps, he
thinks the democratic party
has done its part by him. He
is 5G years of age, and for the
past 29 years of his life he
has fed at the public crib.

End of the Democratic Spree.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
What the democrats of Ohio did
on Wednesday the demociats of
every stale in the Union should and
might easily have done oie year
In the spring of 1900 the demo
crats were a9 well acquainted with
the political character of Mr. Bryan
and his populist associates as they
are to-day. They knew that their
continued leadership meant party
disruption and overwhelming defeat.
The delirium of 1896 had parsed,
but it had been succeeded by a cow
ardice which was quite as paralyz
One year ago when a crazy popu
list gained the floor of the demo
cratic convention and presented a
resolution indorsing Mr. Bryan and
his platforms, democratic, populis-
tic, silver republican, socialistic,
and others, there was nobody to
object, although every man in the
house was well aware that the pro
posed action was impertinent, fool
ish and dangerous.
This year when a person of the
same type undertook to perform the
same act in the Ohio democratic
convention ha found no support,
and he and his resolutions were
promptly voted down. The other
crank who used to appear at the
supreme moment with a cheap por
trait ot the feerless Une was on
hand as usual, but he never knew
what hit him or his banner. He
went through a window and his
portrait found the floor, where it
was walked on throughout the re
mainder of the proceedings.
These incivilities, emphasizing
the remarkable chancre which has
taken place in the democratic party,
do not signify disrespect for Mr.
Bryan so much as they indicate an
awakening to the absurdity of per
mitting emotional irresponsibles of
the popuhstic persuasion to stam
pede the conventions of a great par
ty in favor of candidates and prin
ciples to which it is not and never
can be attached.
1 he great democratic drunk is
over with. By rights it should
have ended a year ago.
Finest Soldiers' Home in the World.
Correspondence of the Courier-Journal.
Washington, July 19. Ever
mindful of the comfort and happi
ness of the men who volunteered to
serve him upon the field of battle,
Uncle Sam is about to erect for
their use, near Johnson City, Tenn
what will probably be the finest
veteran and invalid soldiers' home
in the world. Institutions of like
character already in existence in
this country are commodious and
well appointed, but none of them
will bear comparison with the home
which is to be built in I ennessee.the
cost of which is now estimated at a
round million of dollars.
Like the soldiers' homes at Togus,
Me.; Quincy, III., and Dayton, O
the new one is to be a retreat for
disabled volunteer soldiers who have
served the Union, no matter in what
war, but the rules governing admit
tance to it will embody a new de
parture which does credit to the
head and heart of Uncle Sam, but
one, which even but a few years ago,
could not have been adopted except
in the face of a storm of angry pro
tests. The home at Johnson City,
if the present "plan is adhered to
will be open to disabled soldiers of
the Confederacy upon the sime
terms as to those who served in the
armies of the Union. "Yank" and
'Johnny" will there lounge about
beneath the same friendly shade and
be enabled to compare notes and
recall the etirrinjr and tragic times
when they faced each other in bat
tie array. If this determination on
the cart of Uncle Sam does not
mean that "the cruel "war is over"
it is hard to say what further evi
dence is needed to establish the fact.
During last May an infant child
of our neighbor was suflering from
cholera infantum. The doctors had
given up all hope of her recovery.
I took a bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Kem-
edy to the house, telling them I
felt sure it would do good if used
according to directions. In two
days time the child had fully recov
ered. The child is now vigorous
and healthy. I have recommended
this remedy frequently and have
never known it to fail. Mrs. Cur

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
I La Grange, Tenn., Jan. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
1 Brooklyn, N. Y.
Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the M State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 marcs. I was offered
400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
, hide the wire, and in five days the leg burs ted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when be would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen paxts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one d.ollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
' Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best linime'nt that money ;
' can buy. . I will answer all inquiring letters.
