The Soufch today is govern

Vote-buying is not common

Senator Morgan's Views.
Washington, Sept. 15 (Special.)
Senator John T. Morgan return
ed today from Hot Springs, where
he always spends the summer.
"I believe," said Senator Morgan
in an answer to the queries "that
if the Democratic party acts wisely
in me coming campaign, it is
destined to meet withisuccess. On
such great issues as the trusts and
the tariff it is occupying the right
ground, and its position as to these
should meet the approval of the
American people. It is absolutely
certain that the illegal combinations
known as trusts can be successfully
attacked and deprived of their
power to hurt the public. As to
the tariff, first and always, there
should be democratic insistence that
trade should be as free between our
continental and our insular territory
as it is between the States them
selves. Judge Taft is the authority
for such a policy and he is a good
Republican. A tariff for revenue
only, the ancient Democratic faith,
is still sound doctrine.
'What about a candidate?"
"Well I have my preference; but
it is not yet time to talk of men. I
am, of course, for any man that is
chosen by the party in national
convention assembled, except I have
au unalterable opposition to the
candidacy of any man who may

stayed at his post and braved death
for humanity's sake. Dozens of
his associates died while remaining
steadfast. It was necessary that
some one should remain. The
populace was scattered to the four
winds, and thieves, ghouls and
burglars ran rampant ihrough the
town. Those who had been trapped
by the quarantine lines knew that
almost certain death awaited them,
and all the veneering of civilization
was thrown off. Men became
brutes and in their desperation
committed all manner of crimes.
Gen. Wright and his colleague
succored the sick and suppressed
crime by radical means. Ghouls
and pillagers were dealt with in a
manner similar to that in vogue
after the Galveston disaster, and
order was preserved at the point of

Weather and the Crops.
Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 15 Dry
and hot weather, according to
Section Director Bate of the United
States weather and crop service,
has considerably injured crops in
Tennessee during the past week.
Early corn, however, is pretty well
matured and is in fine crop. The
late corn is being damaged. Cot
ton, he says, is showing the inju
rious effects of the drouth, opening
prematurely with profuse shedding
of forms. Late Irish potatoes are
doing no good. Late peas and
millet and young clover are suffer
ing for rain. The work of plow
ing for fall seeding has been almost
completely stopped on account of
the dry and bare condition of the
soil. Gardens and melons are being
cut short and the prevailing drouth
in some sections is one of the most
severe in many years,' being intensi
fied by hot, dry winds.
For a billious attack take Cham
berlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets
