The Panama Canal treaty has
been ratified by a vote of 06 to 14.
Fourteen democrats voted for the'
ratification of the treaty and four
teen against, Senators Bate and
Carmack being among the latter.
The democratic iloterial commit
tee of the Twenty-fourth district,
composed of Hardeman, Chester
and Haywood Counties, met in
Jackson Saturday and called a dele
gated convention to meet at Boli
var, August 15th.
Notwithstanding the fact that
Mr. McMillin and his friends are
making a fight against Senator
Bate, that conscientious and honor
able gentleman remains at his post
of duty in Washington, looking
after the interests of his constitu
ents. Senator Bate never neglects
It is c'onceded that West Ten
nessee is entitled to one member of
the Railroad Commission, and ii
fact, if we mistake not, the Act
creating the Commission states that
"one member shall come from each
grand division of the state." If
this be true, certainly West Ten
nessee should have the right to
name the candidate of her prefer
ence. These remarks are brought
forth by what we consider the. pre
mature action 01 some counties in
other sections of the state instruct
ing for certain caudidates for the
vacancy from West Tennessee,
caused by the expiration of Hon.
IN. VY. Jbaplist s terns. KJniy one
county in West Tennessee has
spoken, so far, and that county en
.dorsed Mr. J. D. Senter, of Hum
boldt, for the position. It seems
to us that it would only be common
courtesy for the counties of the
other divisions to defer action in
this matter until the Western Dis
trict expresses its preference.
He says: "This is no time for
cunning finesse, nor for the use of
words that conceal intentions, or
carry a double meauing. The
Democratic party has a message to
send to its followers and to the mas
ses of the American people Let
that message be expressed in
language easily understood, uncon
tused by evasion and untouched by
the taint of jugglery. Obsolete is

Mr. Cleveland urges tariff reform,
pleads for economy in the expendi

the opposition with having made
promises and broken them. He ar
raigns the Administration's Philip
pine policy and refers to the -isthmian
canal in these words:
"The Democratic party has been
consistent and unremitting in its ad
vocacy of an inter oceauic canal,
and has with the liveliest satisfac
tion looked forward to the day when
Huch highway of commerce, built
under the auspices of our Govern
ment, would be contributed b
Ameiica to the world's progress and
civilization. It is nevertheless,
not within the mandates of the
Democratic creed that even in con
summating so noble an enterprise an
this, the territorial rights of any
other nation should Jbe disregarded.
or that our own national good faith
should be subjected to resonable
Mr. Cleveland concludes as fol
At such a time as this, the
Democratic party cannot with honor
undertake the battle of the people
except under a leader that not onlj
represents its traditions and pur
poses, but fully realizes what is
meant by the tremendous issues of
the conflict, and his selection should
not depend upon so small a consider

Opportunity For Success To Democracy.
In an article written for this
week's Saturday Evening Post, for
mer President Cleveland urges his
"rank and file associates" of the
Democratic party to uuite and take
advantage of the opportunities of
"I am one of those," he writes,
"who believe that there is an op
portunity for Democratic success in
the coming Presidential election.
Though attachment to the party in
which I am enlisted and an intense
desire for its ascendary make such a
belief exceedingly welcome, they
certainly do not create it. It is
built upon an unshaken and abiding
trust in the patriotism and -intelligence
of my fellow countrymen."
Mr. Cleveland's paper opens with
a reiteration of the declaration that
he made three years ago:
'Our fighting forces will respond,
listlessly and falttringly if summon
ed to a third defeat in a strange
cause, but to the rallying note of
true Democrcy they will gather for
battle with old-time Democratic en
thusiasm and courage."
Referring to his faith in bis Demo
cratic associates, he continues:
"This trust will not permit me to
overlook the meaning of the daily
increasing unrest among our people,
growing out of. the startling and
flippant abandonment of the party
in power of our national traditions
and maxims, its disregard of our
national moral restraints, its incon
siderate tendency to set aside nation
al good faith, its willingness to
break away from safe and accustom
ed moorings, and its contemptuous
neglect of our national mission.
Surely these conditions, together
with the broken pledges and for
gotten promises of reform that vex
the sight on every side, not only
abundantly eiplain the popular dis
trust and fear prevailing everywhere
in the land, but suggest that in such
-a stress of political weather those of
oar fellow-citizens who thoughtful
ly and constantly love our free in-
scene ot rare beauty. Included in
the hotel grounds is an elegant ope
ra or casino building, golf links,
tennis, base and foot ball grounds.
Therj are many beautiful orange
groves in and around Tarapi. Or
ange trees are seen on the avenues
aud yards more numerous than
peach and apple trees in Tennessee.
One afternoon we walked out to an
orange grove, near by, and obtain
ed permission to go through and to
gather some fruit, which we took
much pleasure in doing. The grove
contains 888 trees, a few only of
which have fruit now, as the orange
crop was gathered before Christmas
for the markets. Some scattering
fruit is seen here and there, and oc
casionally a tree heavily laden.
W e gathered some oranges and
blooms off the same tree.

Conviction of Howard Would
Through the courtesy ot a friend,
we are permitted to make the fol

Tampa, Fla., Feb. 17, 1904.
Dear Frieud We left Lake City
on the 4th iust. over the Seaboard
Air Line aud traveled west fortv
miles to Baldwin, where we chang
ed cars, taking train from Jackson
ville to Tampa.
About 100 miles below Baldwin,
we came to the Palmetto trees the
tall ad the dwarfs. Large patches
of lettuce and other vegetation are
seen along the route. Many beauli
f ul lakes and streams attract atten
tion. The peach trees in bloom
looktd pretty aud spring-like. The
soil is sandy and the timber is prin
cipally pine. The manufacture of
turpentine and rosin is quite au in
dustry in the piuey woods of Geor
gia and Florida.
About 2 p m., we arrived at Sil
ver Spriug, where our train stopped
a tew minutes to allow passengers
to see the celebrated spring, which
is very, very beautiful, and covers
about ten acres. It is eighty feet
deep aud it gives a silver coloring
to everything that comes in contact
with its waters. It is very clear
aud pleasure boats are there to take
people riding, a nice. hotel and the
place is something of a resort, 112
miles from Tampa.
Tampa claims a population of
32,000, and is situated on Tampa
Bay aud Middleborough river. It
has g jod street car service, with
about thirty miles of track; block
after block ot solid brick aud stone
busiuess houses; hundreds of hand
some aud comfortable homes; about
150 cigar manufactories, many of
which are two, three and four-story ,
The most famous of all the prison
ers at the fchelby county Tail is
George Frederick Burgoyne How
ard. who- is held at the expense of
the government to await trial at
the spring term of the Federal
court at Jackson. Creeping Bear
aud other celebrities took a back
seat when txeorge rreuerick was
admitted Monday night.
Howard s reputation bad pre
ceded. Prison attaches and prison
ers had been told in advance of his
coming, and when he entered the
door there was a craning of necks
and a straiuing ot eyes to get
glimpse of the man whom the
government had held as of sufficient
importance to spend a good-sized
fortune to convMct. The prisoner,
however, at this time is most
modest, even shrinking, and to al
appearances does not seem to court
Yesterday L T. M. Canada, who
was his counsel in the famous tria
it Jackson, by request, called at the
jail. He was closeted with How
ard for an hour or moie, but when
seen afterward said the question o
bail, or employing legal aid had not
been entered into. Mr. Canada, to
a reporter for the Scimitar, said
Howard, whom he had not seen for
almost a dozen years, instantly rec
ognized him. "However" continued
the lawyer. "I would not have
known my former client. Had In
uot bten pointed out to me I should
.have passed him without even so
much as a nod."
Howard, according to the attorney
is a much changed individual. "I
kuew him intimately in the past,"
said he. "He was as tine looking a
specimen of the robust man as I
ever knew. The change I noted
yesterday was almost marvelous.
He has no color, his eyes are un
natural in their look; he is stooped,
emaciated, has a hacking cough, no
appetite, and, in my opinion, is not
long for this world unless the
government is sufficiently lenient to
dismiss the revised indictments and
permit him to enjoy liberty. He
will die in prison as surely as he is
There is little chance for the
prisoner to make the $2,500 bond
required. He has a uumber of
friends here aud at Jackson, but it's
not believed they are sufficiently in
terested in him to go security.

The best thought of the world is

ways results from a cold or from an
attack of ii.liuenzi (grip), aud it has
been observed that this remedy
counteracts any tendency of these

remedy has been used during the
