The South will solve the
negro rjroblem jf tie North
will look after the Anarchist
On the outside of to-day's
Bulletin- will be found an
' account of the attempted as
sassination of President Mc
Kinley at Buffalo last Friday
bv an Anarchist. The das-
tardly deed is deeply de
plored throughout the coun
try. The physicians think
that the patient will recover,
though he is by no means
out of danger.
The faimer is already be
injr advised to hold his cotton
for higher prices, on accoun
of the expected short crop
Holding cotton in anticipa-
tion of higher prices is a risky
business and often results in
loss, as many can testify. Of
course, with the market price
of the staple below the cos
of production and conditions
pointing to an advance,
the farmer is so situated that
he can await developments,
it is well enough not to sell.
But if the price is such that
a reasonable nrofit can be
made, experience has proven
that the wiser and better plan
is to sell.
Every believer in consti
tuted law and authority
should turn the back of his
hand to the Anarchist, and
every state in the Union
should nass strincrent laws
providing for the punishment
of all who advocate the prin
ciples of anarchy,, which are
inimical to our form of gov
ernment. The Anarchist is
of foreign birth, has no love
for or belief in our institu
tions. He incites labor
against capital, the poor
against the rich the result
of which is strikes, loss of
life, destruction of property,
and untold misery and suffer
ing. The Anarchist is a blot
upon civilization, and the
sooner this infamous gang of
assassins is wiped out the
The following recognition of the
merits of West Tennessee's candi
date for Governor, Judge W. II.
Swiggart, comes from Claiborne
county, over in East Tennessee :
"Judge Swiggart, whose home is in
Union City, Obion county, has an
nounced that he is a candidate for
Governor. He has been a circuit
judge for nearly sixteen years and
could be elected to the same office
for another term if he wanted it.
But he has decided after much per
suasion by his friends all over the
state to make the racs for Governor.1
Judge Swiggart is said to be a man
of unimpeachable character, an up
right judge, and has continued to
make friends in spite of the fact
that he is a judge and must decide
other people's quarrels. lie is said to
be a type of the old-fashioned south
ern gentleman, and would no doubt
surround himself with a type of men
who would restore to the Btate of
Tennessee the old-timed dignity
whichjprevailed in ante-bellum times
around the state capitol at Nashville.
It is seldom that such a man as
Judge Swiggart will enter the strife
and turmoil of latter day politics.
If all is true that is said of him, he
is placing the people of the state
under obligations to him when he
condescends to give up the office he
now holds and enters the broader
field of politics and offers to serve
the people of the state as their Gov
ernor. "West Tennessee has not had a
Governor since Governor Porter,
and it begins to look as if the peo
ple in this end of the state will de
mand recognition at the next state
convention. ' i
"The old a'dage, 'Go away from
home to learn the news,' is verified
in a publication we note in the Nash
ville Banner, that Mr. J. F. Hunter,
criminal court clerk of Shelby coun
ty, will have charge of the forces of
Hon. J. B. Frazier in West Tennes
see in his fight for Governor. So
far the matter has - been running
along pretty much without consider
ation, but local pride of West Ten
nessee may assert itself and it may
demand something besides the priv
ilege of electing the nominees from
some other section of the state.
"Judge Swiggart is a clean, able
man, and the suggestion that his
own bailiwick is to be invaded and
be defeated by bis own home people,
those from whom he should natural
ly expect hearty support, don't
sound well. It may be done but we
don't-think it will be complimentary
to the local pride of the democrats
of West Tennessee or their loyalty
to their own section of the state.
We have heard it said the highest
order of patriotism . was loyalty
first to home, second to community,
third to district, fourth to county,
fifth to section, sixth to state, sev
enth to United States." Covington
Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After 30
Years of Suffering.
"I have suffered for thirty years
with diarrhoea and thought I was
past being cured," says John S. Ilal
loway, of French Camp, Miss. "I
had spent" so much time and money
and suffered so much that I had
given up all hopes of recovery. I
was so feeble from the effects of the
diarrhoea that I could do no kind
fit i 1 i . .I
labor, and could not even travel. I
but by accident I was permitted to

anxious that it should be in reach of
all who suffer as I have.

Would Not Tolerate Them.
While the President of the United
States, the victim of an. assassin,
lies on what may be his deathbed,
and while the American people are
sorrowful and indignant over the
dastardly attack on the nation's
Chief Magistrate, bands of Anarch
ists in New Jersey and elsewhere
are drinking toasts in honor of the
assassin and otherwise applauding
his deed. This is a very free coun
try too free to be the home of
such creatures as these. The South
has its faults. It sometimes executes
a criminal without formality of the
law, and it is at times rather free in
mixing fire and coal oil and negroes
together, which is by no means to
its credit. But it would not toler
ate the brand of Anarchists who
find a nolitical and safe haven in the
North. Those Anarchists in New
Jersjy or Chicago would not last in
the South over night. There are
Southerners who commit deeds
which tend toward anarchy, but no
where in the South would those An
archists whose avowed mission is to
murder those in authority, be per
mitted to thrive. Drinking toasts
to the wretch who attempted to
murder the President of the United
States would be about as dangerous
in the South as an attempt to ravish
a woman. American.

From the sunburned
streets of the Philippines and Afri
can villages we took by contrast the
ice-bound Eskimo village. These
little people, dressed in their furs
and crawling into their snow-cover
ed huts, are an interesting study.
Unlike the people in all the other
foreign villages, they seem utterly
oblivious to all about them, and ap
pear to be living their life as if upon
their native soil. Such is the per
fection of arrangement that it re
quires but little flight of imagina

the Indian Village a visit. The

the same state, received us with
true southern chivalry and gave us
a box. At the beginning of his per
forraance he executed a most mas
terly piece of horsemanship and
made his salute to the audience im
mediately in front of the Tennessee
box. Tennessee handkerchiefs
waved accordingly. Another Ten

The South and the President.
The popularity of the President
in the South has been demonstrated
in a marked way siuce the assassin's
bullet brought him into the valley
of the shadow. From no section of
the Union have come more sincere
expressions of sympathy for the
wounded President and in none
have there been 'stronger demonstra
tions of resentment and indignation
at the dastardly act of his assailant.
The South, in common with the
rest of the country, has learned to
admire Mr. McKinley because of
the sturdy uprightness of the man,
the even tenor of his kindly dispo
sition and the broad unsectional
views he has brought to the admin
istration of his office. The South
also esteems him because of his gen
erous attitude towards the ex-Con
federate soldiers. It was he who,
in his Atlanta speech, startled the
Bourbon element in the North by
proposing that the Government take
care of Confederate graves and he
wore with a smile the Confederate
army button which was pinned on
his coat lappel by an old Boldier of
the South at Macon. The many
Southerners who differed with Mr.
McKinley in politics even those
who held resentf.il memories and
bitter prejudice against the party
that had elected him to office were
touched by these simple incidents
which demonstrated the kindly feei
ng and broad-mindedness or the
Mr. McKinley has been three
times into the South Bince he was
first elected President. On one of
these occasions he was a visitor to
the Tennessee Centennial Exposition
in this city, and he passed through
the western portion of this state on
his recent tour through the South to
the Pacific coast. On each visit he
made the most favorable impression
on those with whom he came into
close contact and .'established in the
minds of many who heard him
speak, without regard to political
opinions, a high estimate of the

Ex-Gov. Taylor's Tribute.
Knoxville Journal aJ Tribune, Sunday.
Ex. Gov. Robert L. Taylor said
yesterday upon hearing of the at
tempt on President McKinley' life:
If he dies it will perhaps be the
greatest calamity the nation has
ever sustained, notwithstanding that
two noble men have met death at
the hands of the assassiu in that
high office. The conditio.! of the
public affairs needs just such an
optimist as he at the head of affairs.
'I served in the Forty-sixth Con-
j gress with President McKinley. " I
was a boy then in my twenties and
he nothing but a young man. He
was genial, affable and cheerfully
optimistic and was loved and re
spected by every member of the
44Ile was at our Centennial in
1897, when he had grown older both
in years and political experience.
He was still the cheerful optimist I
had found him to be years before.
I delivered the address of welcome
to him and his Cabinet, and pinned
on the lapel of his coat a sweet for
get me-not. I have always called
to see him when I am in Washing
ton, and the last time I saw him he
i told me he was still wearing that
sweet forget-me not on his heart for
the genial people of T ennessee and
I regard him as one of our best
and purest public men, and, as I
say, his death would be the greatest
calamity that ever befell the nation.
I think he is one of the greatest
leaders since Lincoln.
'All may have differences of opin
ions and on political questions, but
at heart we are all one, and his death
would be a profound sorrow to ev-'
ery true American citizen."
Rural Free Delivery Growing.
"The rural free delivery service
has assumed gigantic proportions,"
eaid Superintendent Machen of the
free delivery service yesterday.
"Just to show you how the ser
vice has grown within the last three
years, we must compare its extension
with the free delivery proper given
to all cities with a population of
over 10,000 or having a postal busi
ness aggregating over $10,000 each
year, l nree years ago congress ap
propriated $50,000 for experiment
ing with a rural service. The results
were eo satisfactory the first year
that an appropriation of $1,500,000
was made the second year. The
last congress gave the postoffice de
partment $3,500,000 for rural free
delivery service, and if it keeps on
growing in comparison as it has for
the last three years, $5,000,000 will
be needed in order to complete its
extension into all the rural districts
throughout the United States. On
the other hand, twenty years ago an
appropriation was made by congress
of $400,000 for the introduction of
the free delivery service into certain
large cities throughout the country,
and it has taken a fifth of a century
for this appropriation to reach $3,
500,000, while the rural free deliv
ery gained that mark in three years.
Last week the postoffice depart
ment granted nine letter carriers to
the postmaster at Honolulu, Hawai
ian Islands. This is the first time
that the inhabitants of our new ter
ritory have been given the advan
tage of our increased mail facilities,
and the results will be watched with
