A white republican, a gentleman
of intelligence, who has voted the
republican ticket since 21 years of
age, stated to the writer recently
that he had become disgusted with
President Roosevelt, on account of
his negro-loving policy. He con
eiders him a dangerous man, unfit
for the position he holds and seeks
to retain, and he savs there are
many otner wnite republicans in
the South of the same opinion, who
will vote against Roosevelt. He
said: "The only strength Roosevelt
has among white republicans in the
South is confined almost entirely to
The plank in the republican plat
form which threatens a reduction of
Southern representation in Congress
on account of "disfranchisement"
of the negro by certain Southern
States, is not only a plea for the
negro vote, but is in keeping with
Roosevelt's great love for his color
ed brother. Roosevelt has done
more to stir up race preiudice than
any president since the civil war.
As Gov. Vardaman, of Mississippi,
very truthfully stated, "the hell
born accident wLich put Roosevelt
in the White House and McKinley
in his grave, is greatly to be de
plored." The President may break
bread with negroes and he may ap
point them to positions of profit,
but he little understands the make
up of the Southern people if he has
the remotest idea that he or any
one else can put them on an equal
footing or bring about social equali
ty between the races.
Former Mayor James M. Head,
one of Tennessee's delegates at
large to the National Convention,
is urging the nomination of Sena
tor Carmack for the Vice Presiden
cy at the St. Louis Convention. He
has been sending letters to the del
egates from other States urging
them to support Tennessee's dis
tinguished junior senator, and he is
very much encouraged at the nature
of the replies which he has re
ceived so far. In common with i
vast majority of Democrats of Ten
nessee, Mr. Head believes that Sen
ator Carmack would be an exception
ally strong candidate for Vice-Presi
den, and he is going to make every
effort to have him nominated. In
this he will have the hearty co-operation
of the entire Tennessee delega
tion with the exception of Senator
Carmack, who declares that he will,
if necessary, violate his instructions
and vote for some other candidate
Different Views About Grover.
Washington, June 28. Represen
tative John Wesley Gaines refused
to take any stock in the revived
Cleveland boom, and insists that
Judge Parker would be nominated
at St. Louis and elected in Novem
ber. When asked about Cleveland
'Cleveland? Why that man's
.very name is distasteful to true
Democrats. How would you expect
him to win when he could not even
carry Kentucky? No, eir; it is im
possible, especially to Southern
Democrats, to swallow this pill, nor
will it be forced npon them. Par
ker is the man of the hour, and he
alone can rescue the country from
the evils of Republican rule."
At a conference yesterdy between
Senator Gorman, of Maryland, ex
Gov. Smith, of New Jersey, Col.
Guffey, of Pittsburg and John R.
McLean at the latter'a home here,
Mr. McLean is reported to have pre
dicted the nomination of Cleveland
in the following words:
"Cleveland is ad d old rhinocer
os, but he is the only winner in
eight. He would stay 8 wake a
mouth to appoint all of my enemies)
to office, but he in t Tip ifet vntcrrn. I
ter in the Democratic party, and he
is the only man that has a ehowincr
of beating Roosevelt."
McLean controls the forty'six
delegates from Ohio.
Louis Williams, of Nashville,
Tenn., who has just made a tour of
the South, is at the Ebbitt.
"I want to tell you something
that is hard to believe," said he, "all
over the South I found men by the
score and by the hundreds who are
for Grover Cleveland for the Dem
ocratic nominee. This talk about
Southern people not supporting
Cleveland, if nominated, ought not
to deceive a child. Not only would
the people vote for him, but they
would do it gladly. They know
he is with them on that rno&t vital
of all questions, the maintenance of
white supremacy. They know he
is with them on tariff reform, and
they know now that he was right
and most of them wrong on the sil
ver question. 't

Editor Bulletin I have put
in seventy solid hours seeing the
Fair, and still the greater part ot it
is yet to be seen. Of course there
are some things which attract your
attention first which after you have
seen them soon become common
place. Others which have to be
sought out grow in interest day
after day. The great mass of peo
ple who visit the fair are dazed by
the noise, jangle and blare of the
"spielers" and bands at the several
cneap siue snows, or are caugnt in
the tarnish of a vulgar performance
inside by the gaud and glitter with
out. That which is instructive and
reany worm stuaying are tne ex
hibits free to the public in all of
the buildings. It is better to spend
one hour, gay, in the agricultural
exhibits than a whole day on the
pike. In the one you will find use
ful information as well as wonder
ful sights, while in the other you
can spend your money for nothing
more than a silly laugh.

the biggest day of the Exposition,
for an elaborate program is being
prepared, and all the railroads wilf
sell exceedingly low rate tickets.
It is worth a trip here just to see
the illuminations, cascades and
fountains at night. The whole
grounds seem to be one great archi

display will be extremely gorgeous.

where I have been as a student for

some white friends, I beg to be al

different trades, it is teaching an

the intellects of these youths, so as
to make them more law abiding,
more thoughtful and more honest,
hence better neighbors and better

stead of fighting different creeds,

On Monday night June, 20, 1904,
death invaded the home of Mr.
John R. McCommons, six miles
north west of Saulsbury, and claim
ed as his victim a precious jewel,
Henry, aged 17 years, 4 months,
and 20 days. We cannot under-,
stand why he was taken away in
the golden days of his youth, but
God knew best and took him from
this world of sorrow. His place in
the home was inexpressively dear,
and the sorrow of father, mother,
brothers and other loved ones is
very great. II is short life was full
of joy and sunshine, and he was
cheerful even unto the end. It was
a consolation to his dear ones to
minister to his wants, and follow
him tenderly to the grave. Always
honest, kind and courteous, Henry
was a favorite wherever known.
Nothing could be done to stay the
disease that carried him off so sud
denly. And now tnat be is gone,
and all that cculd, has been done,
we commend our sorrowing friends
to the matchless comfort of the
Scriptures, and to the living
presence of the blessed Christ. '
