Voluntary expressions from a
large number of citizens from differ
ent parts of Hardeman County in
attendance upon court this week de
velop the fact that Senator Bate
has many strong and influential
friends in this county. They ad
mire his honesty and courage, ap
preciate the services he has render
ed the state in peace and in war,
and in view of the fact that his loy
ally to his people has never wavered
and his mental faculties are still un
impaired, they can see no reason for
setting him aside.
Judge Ben Lindsey.
The following is from the Jack
son Dispatch of last week. Judge
Lindsey is a brother of Mrs. R. E.
Duriett, of Bolivar:
The two men in public life who
have made the most reputation and
character the past year .in the great
western half of the United States,
are West Tennessee boys. We al
lude to Circuit Attorney Joe Folk,
of St. Louis, aud Judge Ben Lind
sey, of Denver. The lormer was
born and reared in our neighboring
city of Brownsville; the latter is a
Jackson boy. Both have made
iheir reputation in the legal profes
sion. Judge Lindsey is on tne bench in
Denver, the metropolis of the
Rocky MountainSi He has proven
to be more than a mere jude,
weighing out the law by the scales
of justice, and has gone beyond in
to the realm of the humanitarian,
philanthropist and statesman lie
has shown that the arm of the law
may be invoked to save as well as
punish its violators.
IIe,has established and is making
famous the Detention School for
4;hildrP"at Denver, whih is re
forming and saving hundreds of
young lives. Its success has been
so marked that it attracted the no
tice of officials of the World's Fair
at St. Louis, and Judge Lindsey has
been selected to have charge of this
important feature at the great Ex
position next year.
We have a Denver paper before
ns containing an admirable article
from Judge Lindsey on the "Deten
tion School and Studies in - Way
ward Childhood." We take from
it the following excerpt and inci
dent: "Do dreams come true? Three
years ago, when I began the study
of ! child offenses, the Detention
School was one of mv dreams. To
day it is a reality. The fight
against the jail has been fought and
"Last night a 15-year-oUl boy
was sent to me from the jail, ac
companied by an officer. He was
accused of stealing a ring from a
neighbor and other worse offenses.
He denied them to evoryone, and
as he said to ine at first: 'Thpy
have no proof.' The boy had in
mind what so many boys and men
have who do wrong, viz: 'Steal all
you please, cheat all jou please, but
don't get caught.' Of course, he
admitted everything to me, and
more than he was charged with,
and then I sent him back to jail
alone and without surveillance.
This kind of boy must be made to
fear to do wrong, and not tear to
get Jcaught, for I caught him with
out the slightest trouble, and with
no artifice but the greatest kindness;
not only no promise ot immunity
from punishment, but I believe he
thinks now I a n going to 'send Lira
up.' Any one can do it, no doubt,
if he goes at it right. Many teach
ers do. This boy was not afraid to
have me eatch him. Only the boy
knew. We had no proof. Convic
tion was impossible under the crim
inal court,' yet the boy and not the
ring was the important thing. That
boy will have a more wholesome,
genuine fear to do wrong next time
The chances are he will not reueat
the offense. He did not tell his fa- j free from every suspicion of
ther, because he hated him. Some graft; for amendments of CX
boys would not have told their fa-! igt;nff tariff schedules in the
thers, whom they respected and f t nf tiip POlintrv at
1 1 i,.,n, f0orori them interest oi ine country at
They would have equally lied. Of
course, you bee the point."
McClellai banquet speeches.
I A grand banquet was given
I in New York City Monday
night in honor of George B.
; McClellan, newly installed
Mayor of that city. Demo-
crats of prominence from the
Clt State and nation Were
present. The speakers in-
eluded Mayor McClellan,
Richard Olney, David B.
Hill, Charles A. Towne,
Bourke Cochrane and others.
All predicted democratic suc
cess and scored the President
for his many sins of omission
Mr. McClellan said:
"It was my good fortune
two months ago to lead the
democratic party to victor7
in this city. It was fortunate
to be the standard-hearer in
the first successful skirmish
preliminary to the great hat
tie which is to be fought this
year, and so in hearing your
cheers I feel they are not in
tended so much for the man
who stands before you as for
the cause which he had the
honor to represent. And for
that cause I ask you to iin
with me in sending from this
great democratic gathering
in this great democratic city,
the glad news to our brethren
throughout the land that we
democrats of New York are
resolved in our purpose to
wrest the State and nation
from Republican misrule.
Because we are capable of
much, much is expected of
us; because much has been
given us, much will be re-
Iquired. Let us then at the
beginning 01 this political
year present to the country
the spectacle of a united and
Mr. Olney followed Mr.
McClellan and after paying a
personal tribute to the newly
elected Maj'or and the dem
ocratic party, said: that it
was a misfortune for the
country that the Republican
party had tor seven years
been in undisputed control
of all departments of the
I government and he consider
ed the present gathering a
good sign that there will
be in the future a well or
ganized and patriotic opposi
tion. "The democratic part)',"
lie said, "will, of course, bow
to the logic of accomplished
facts. Yet, while using the
irrevocable past as guide and
warning for the future, it
will and must stand for cer
tain things of vital conse
quences which the Republi
can party, tried by its record
past and recent, cannot stand
for and cannot b trusted to
"In niatt'-rs f fn-igi.
policy the democratic party :
international morality and
decent international conduct;
for observance of treaties ami
obedience to international
law; for respect for the rights
of every nation, howevct
small; for refusal to take
by stealth or by robbery
what we have no right to g-
except by consent of" th- ow
ners; for continuing ou tr
ditional role as the defender
of the weaker states of this
hemisphere instead of becom
ing their spoliator; for mind
ing our own business gener
ally without meddling with
the internal affairs of foreign
countries, and without mak
ing rumors and trivial events
the pretexts for militar)7 de
monstrations in foreign ports.
"In matters domestic the
democratic party will repu
diate the 'stand pat' policy
and will advocate both econo
my in expenditures and such
tarifF reforms as industrial
conditions and the interests
of the country at large de
mand. In that view it will
stand for a reasonable rela
tion between governmental
revenues and governmental
reforms; for clean administra
tion and official conduct,
large and not in that ot!
special syndicates or iavorea
industries; for such access to
foreign markets by tariff ad-
justments or reciprocity treat
ies as will enable American
producers to dispose of their
surplus products, for taking
from the 'so-called 'trusts'
that kind and degree of pro
tection which enables them
both to monopolize the home
market and to sell to the
foreign consumer at prices
greatly below those made to
the domestic consumer.
"The democratic party will
also stand for the supremacy
of laws; for law for nations
no less than for individuals;
for law for the greatest and
not exempted from its power
and for the very least as feel
ing its cares; for law for cap
italists and law lor wage
earners; for law for President
and Cabinet as well as for
the humblest of ' private citi
zens." -Upon these issues lie
believed the opposition to
the Republican party will
eventually prevail and the
American people will resume
their normal habits of
thought and action.
'Every season of feverish
stress and storm," he declared
"has its limit. Returning
reason and sobriety inevita
bly reassert themselves and
all the signs are that the
change is now at hand aud is
most welcome. We have had
a surfeit of sensations and of
spectacles, need a rest. We
need it to recover our equili
brum, to assimilate our undi
gested dependenceis, to get
used -to exploiting inferior
races for their good and to
our own great cost,, and rein
vigorate in us that respect
for law and that love of
liberty and of peace, which
the exercise of military dom
ination in any form or for
any purpose inevitably weak
ens and too often destroy s.
"In this direction lies the
opportunity of the democrat
ic party. It could ask for no
woithier mission than to be
instrumental in restoring to
the national life the sane and
moral conditions upon which
its health and stability de
pends. "Mr. Chairman, the man
of all men most thorougly
representative of the national
policies I have indicated, the
most capable and sure of
making them effective the
opportunity being given:

age in his convictions, who
