The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
Friday, August 5, 1904.
Tub only way for Miseiasippians
to get a postoffice named "Varda
man" is to defeat Roosevelt. That
they will do theu level best to
wards accomplishing this desired
end, is a foregone conclusion.
Rktcexs from the primary and
county election, held yesterday
will be published in our next issue.
The democratia nominees', Bishop
for Trustee and Smith for Sheriff,
had no opponents and of course are
elected. In the primary, Carter for
Representative and Gill for State
Senator, had no opponents, ' hence
the former will be declared the nom
inee and the latter will receive the
vote of Hardeman in the Senatorial
Convention. For Floater, there
were two aspirants, Deming and
Anderson. We go to press before
the result is announced.
In withdrawing from the race for
United States Senator, Mr. McMil
lin did the most sensible thing pos
sible under the circumstances he
would have gone down ia defeat
and his continued candidacy would
nave caused party disruption in
some counties. McMillin made a
great mistake in opposing Senator
Bate in the beginning. He ia cred
ited with being a shrewd politician,
but he mistook the sentiment of
Tennesseeans if he imagined for an
instant that they would turn down
uiu onnon tor mm or any one
else. The battle-scarred warrior
and statesman will die in the bar
A Wild Ass' Bray.
in order mat our people may
know something of the republican
nominee for Congress from this dis
trict, we reproduce the following
from the Nashville American:
"So Grant Matthews has been
making one of bis characteristic
speeches at Huntingdon. Up in
East Tennessee, where he is-known,
nobody attaches any importance to
anything he says, but when he seeks
to inflame nesrroes in West Tennes
see he is liable to get into trouble.
Matthews was caught and clothed in
Jefferson County. It is alleged
that he was named Allen Thurman
Grant Matthews, but when he grew
to be such a rantankerous radical
Republican he dropped the Thur
man part of his name and- became
Allen Grant Matthews, then A. G.
Matthews, and when he got away
from home the lion. Grant Mat
thews. Through speaking at coun
try school-houses and at Republican
powwowB in the coves he developed
a gift of gab which among the rural
and illiterate is regarded as oratory.
He was never elected to any office,
but was appointed to one or two
minor positions in Knoxville and
was finally unloaded, throush the
the Brownlow influence, on the
Memphis postoffice, where he now
holds a job. Recently he was nom
inated for Congress in the Tenth
District by the Republican mana
gers, who know what an empty
honor it is.
Among those who know him in
East Tennessee there will be much
amusement over the reports that
Hon. Grant Matthews" is making
BDeeches in West Tennessee and
advising negroes and other Repub
licans to get their guns and fight be
fore submitting to the infamous out
rages of the vile and slimy Demo
cracy. It would require an abnor
mal imagination to eight Grant Mat
thews wading in gore. Grant never
shot anything more ferocious than a
shoat. He might lead a charge on
a free lunch counter, but if the gun
play he advises should ever occur
he would scoot for home and crawl
under the bed. We know Mr.
Matthews. It would be impossible
for him to be the leader of or to in
fluence white men who are both re
spectable and intelligent. But he is
admirably qualified by the possession
of certain qualities and the lack of
others to be a misceievous leader of
ignorant negroes. Unrestrained by
worthy scruples or a sense of de
cency, but enamored with the sound
of hisstridulous voice and encourag
ed by the applause of African audi
tors, which is as sweet to his ears
as the odor which smites bis
nostrils, there is no language too
foolish or vicious for him to em
ploy. 'Though thou shoulds't bray
a fool in a mortar, yet will not his
foolishness depart from him."
Seeing this person cutting such
verbal capers as be cut at Hunting
don one might naturally exclaim in
the language of the book of Job:
"Who hath sent out the wild ass
free? or who hath loosed the bands
of the wild ass?" In East Tennessee
this wild ass brayed harmelessly,
when women and children were be
yord the sound of his voice, but in
West Tennessee ho is likely to in
flame and mislead ignorant negroes
to their own injury and in violation
of peace and order. The "Hon.
Grant Matthews" (how rediculous
that sounds) should take a few stitch
es in his mouth.
"To the Democratic Voters of Ten
"About a year ago, I announced
my candidacy for the United States
Senate, terra beginning March 1905,
and ending March 1911. I have be
come satisfied that the sentiment of
the State favors the return to the
Senate the present iacumbent, Hon.
Wm. B. Bate, and that he shall
continue to wear the honors of this
high trust. I therefore withdraw
from the race, and will not be a
candidate against him before the
Legislature next January; and re
quest that my name be not consider
ed in the primaries called in the
several counties for the purpose of
determining the contest between us.
I take this course at this time be
cause in certain counties that have
heretofore acted favorably to me,
opposition has gone so far as to
nominate independent tickets, and
I am anxious to relieve any excuse
for action which tends to party de
feat. To the many, loyal fiiends
who have honored me with their
support, I wish to express my deep
and lasting gratitude. Very truly,
The startling announcement that
a preventive of suicide had been
discovered will interest many. A
run down system, or despondency
invariably precede suicide and
something has been found that will
prevent that condition which makes
suicide likely. At the first thought
of self destruction take Electric
Bitters. It being a great tonic and
nervine will strengthen the nerves
and build up the system. It's also
