Each civil district will

in the democratic camp
When democrats get together
republicans must stand aside.
The democratic and repub

and perhaps railroad commis

a neignDor arm irienu, siiys:
He is neither sly nor sinister, bu
straightforward and transparent
He never poses or plots to win
his way by any of that artfulness
which seeks to "fool the people."
His genuineness is self-attesting.
He is as careful to listen to the
voice of conscience or the Imperative
of duty as to the conclusions of his
intelligence. And once his mind is
made up regarding any course he
ought to pursue, he will "stand
four-sauare to all the winds that
The Democratic nominee
for Vice President is a rich
man, but his wealth is with
out the stain of dishonesty.
The Washington Post says
of him :
Thfi chief significance and moral
of bis candidacy must be sought in
the story of the man's actual career,
and that is a record which will in
evitably inspire the masses, while it
. r t
banishes the poseioiuty or ciass
prejudice. He began life as a far
mer's boy. He rose from the hum
blest and most obscure environment.
He never made a dollar by usury or
speculation. The swarm of harpies,
gamblers and extortioners who
thrive upon the honest toil of others
know him not. What he has done,
every Americian citizen with brains,
and industry, and courage-can re
peat. His vast fortune has been
accumulated by perfectly simple and
legitimate means. His opportuni
ties were created by his own pa
tience, devotion and address. Henry
G. Davis is a typical Amercian.
He has grown rich and powerful
outside of the atmosphere of the ex
change, the market place, the pawn
shop. He has oppressed none, de
spoiled none, thriven on no misfor
tune of the hapless or folly of the
improvident. And he will appeal 1
to the American youth as an ex
ample and an inspiration. The
Democratic convention builded
wiser than it knew when it put this
man upon the party ticket.
The primary election to be held
on Thursday, August 4th, will not
only nominate a candidate for Rep
resentative and elect members of
the executive committee from the
different districts to serve for the
next two years, but will also elect
delegates to the Senatorial and Flo
terial Conventions. According to
the basis fixed, the districts witl be

Savannah, Tenn., July 18, 1904.
We, the undersigned citizens of
Savannah, Tenn., take pleasure in
endorsing Prof. Walter E. Gill, our
fellow citizen, as a young man of
great force of character, a high
toned, christian gentleman of energy
and enthusiasm. The greater part
of his life has been spent in educa
tional work, and through his efforts
as County Superintendent of Public
Instruction, the educational in
terests of our county have been rais
ed to a higher plane than ever be
His life among us has been in
every way commendable, and war
rants as in the belief that he would
be true to bis obligations in public
as he has always been ia private.

The above is a very complimen
tary endorsement by some of the
most prominent citizens of Hardin
County. Mr. Gill is a candidate for
State Senate from this district.
To the Democrats of the 24th Flo
Fellow citizens As a candidate
for the democratic nomination for
Floater from this district in the
next General Assembly, it was my
earnest desire and intention to
make an active personal canvass for
the position. Continued-sickness in
my family, which gives little prom
ise of an early abatement, renders
it impossible for me to do so.
In making my appeal lor your
support, I desire to say that I
heartily endorse the democratic
platform both State and National,
and if the banner of democracy is
placed in my hands, I will make the
fight for the party in accordance
therewith. If elected, I will en
deavor to reflect the will of the
party as expressed in its platform
upon all party questions and the
will of the majority of my con
stituents upon all other questions
that may arise.
Chester County has no direct
representative, Hardeman and Hay
wood each have one, and in order
to have a voice in the Legislative
council, we are dependent upon the
generosity of our favored eister
counties and ask them to concede to
Chester the Floater.
Trusting that you will honor me
with your support in selecting del
egates to the floterial convention
which meets at Bolivar on August
the 15th next, and assuiing you of
the appreciation of your most cor
dial support, I am yours for service,

Col. Jerome Hill Predicts Democrat
There is nothing to it Parker
and Davis will win easily, if my
observations go for anything," re
marked Col. Jerome Hill at the
Gayoso last night.
Col. nil) and his wife, with their
son, Houston Hill, came in yester
day afternoon from their summer
home at Bolivar. Mrs. Hill left
last night for Atlantic City, where
she will join her daughter Mrs. R.
G. Morrow, 'while Col. Hill and his
I son will depart for San Antonio,
Tex., on business.
In the last six months," con
tinued Mr. Hill, ! have been all
the way from Portland, Me., to
New Orleans, La. All of that time
was prior to the great Democratic
Convention at St. Louis. In all
of my experience I have never seen
such a sentiment against the Presi
dent in power. Former Republi
cans, Gold Democrats who voted
for McKinley and Roosevelt, Inde
pendents who cast their ballots for
the same ticket, all seem united
against the Man on Horseback who
aspires to be Dictator of the Re
public. 'I am rejoiced to see that the
great parly of the people is abso
lutely united, and that Cleveland
and Bryan, CochraD - and Tillman,
and the grand host of independent
and patiiotic thinkers of America
are .united against Roosevelt. If
my observations are worth anything,
the Democratic ticket will be trium
phant next November." Commer
Roosevelt and the Negro.
Read the following, and learn
what kind of seed Roosevelt and
his republican followers are sowing
Washington, July 18. The Post
today prints a remarkable letter
from a colored man, Henry S. Ba
ker, which calls attention to the
difference in treatment which the
negro received at Chicago and St
Louis from the two political conven
tions and shows what the negro
hopes to acquire if Roosevelt is re
elected. He says:
At the Republican convention
the colored man was treated as
companion, friend and brother
There he was made to feel as if he
were not only a political, but a
social equal. The delegates follow
ed the example of our beloved Pres
ident. Theodore Roosevelt, who
teaches that the colored man de
serves to be treated as a social equal
To emphasize this fact he had the
courage to have at his table Prof
Booker T. Washington. If Roose
velt is elected, it will so encourage
the colored men that we will de
mand that Prof. Booker Washing
ton shall be the Republican candi
date for Vice-President in 1908.
Let not my colored brethren
forget that scene in the Republican
Convention when a beautitul white
girl was placed upon the stage and
by her side was placed a negro boy
They then placed flags in their
hands and allowed them to lead the
cheering, thus making the first and
grandest example of the equality of
the races that history records.
In the Democratic convention
there was not a single colored man
It was in word and deed a white
man's party. All hail to Roosevelt,
who has given the poor negro so
much to encourage him to persist ir
bis political and social rights."

General Crop Condition.
The warm, humid conditions that
prevailed during the week induced
continued vigorous growth of vege
tation and there was sufficient sun
shine to forward the wk of thrash
ing wheat, harvesting u.ues and sav
ing hay, and all this was advanced
to a very satisfactory extent; be
sides, the final working over of
crops yet in middle growth. Corn
is in fine condition of development
and the prospects of this important
crop were rarely ever better at this
season; most of it has been "laid by"
in excellent condition. Cotton is
receiving its final cultivation the
plant, although small, is now in
good growth, and some of the early
portion of the crop is ready for top
ping. Wheat thrashing is in full
progress, with good yields, both aa
to quantity and quality; the damage
by sprouting in shock is not as was
feared two weeks ago. Oats are
vieldinj? - well, but considerable
damage by the late wet weainer is
reported. All the minor crops are
reported in fine condition of growth
and development; melons are begin
ning to ripen, although the wet
weather was unfavorable to good
maturing. Fruits are reported good
in most sections and plentiful; in
some peaches are short; a large crop
