Walnut Grove Barbecue.
The citizens in the neighborhood
of Walnut Grove, ia the 13th dis
trict, gave one of the most delight
ful barbecues Friday of the past
week itJias ever been our pleasure
to attend. The place selected was
an ideal eite a beautifully shaded
grove, and near by was a splendid
spring, affording au abundance of
water. The day was bright, cool
and pleasant, a refreshing rain hav
ing fallen the evening before. The
arrangement committee had every
thing in excellent shape and atten
tively looked after the comfort of
thtir guests. The crowd began to
arrive early in the morning and
continued to assemble until noon,
when at least 1000 people were pres.
ent. The spread was upon a table
100 yards long, built in the shape
of a square. Twenty five carcasses,
nicely cooked and carved and scores
of well filled boxes and baskets, con
taining the best of good eatables,
were distributed the full length of
the table, and when all was in read
iness, shortly after 12 o'clock,
George Lambert, chief in charge,
mounted a stand and announced din
ner. The ladles were requested to
occupy the inside of the square, the
gentlemen the outside. The large
crowd tiled to their alloted places
promptly and orderly and after as
sembling awaited with uncovered
heads the blessing, which was in
voked in appropriate terms by Rev.
Mr. Banks. The great feast was
then done full justice to and was
thoroughly enjoyed by all. In ad

man ot tne Hardeman vjounty
Democratic Executive Committee,
announced that there were two gen
tlemen present from Memphis who
would speak. Grant Matthews,
Republican nominee for Congress
from the Tenth District, was first
introduced. His speech was read
from 'manuscript, and consisted
chiefly in flowery language and
spreadeagle flights, extolling the
glories and grandeur of our country.
Not a dozen republicans were pre
sent, but his remarks were listened
to with close and respectful atten
tion. He concluded by saying that
he would return at some future date
and make a poli.ieal speech, and in
the meantime solicited the support
of every voter pgesent.
K. D. McKellar, Democratic elec
tor for the Tenth Congressional
District, was next iutroduced by
Mr. Foster. He stated that he was
present by invitation to represent
the interest of his party, hence he
would have somethiug to say re
garding politics. He reminded his
audience of the fact that a vast
majority of the territory of the
Uuion was acquired under Demo
cratic rule, notwithstanding that the
Republicans claim to be the party
of progress and expaneioi. He
paid his respects to PresidentRoose
velt, and handled his political re
cord iu a masterly manner, showing
clearly that he had overridden the
law and the Constitution; that b.e
was an unsafe and dangerous leader;
that he favored mob law, reading
extracts from Roosevelt's books to
prove it. Coming down to the race
question, he stated that Roosevelt
had forced the Republican party to
take the position of social equality
between the whites and blacks, re
ferring to the incident at the recent
Republican Convention in Chicago,
where a beautiful white girl had
been placed upon the stage and a
black boy by her side, and af
terwards marching around the
and adjoining counties we feel sure. Always
alert, ever watchful of my own and the peo
ples' interests, we have heretofore offered in
ducements that have never been equaled, but
this grand sale is a master-stroke. It will
commence on Saturday morning, June 25th,
at 8 o'clock, and will continue 60 days only.
Bear in mind the fact that this is a spot cash
sale and not one cent's worth will be charged
at these prices. From Mississippi to the
Madison line, from the borders of Fayette to
the hills of McNairy, the news of this great
est of all sales has spread upon the wings of
the wind, and the crowds are coming. We
are delighted to welcome them and will' see
that they are promptly served by our compe
tent corps of courteous salesmen. Read below
some of the values that will stagger other dealers.

stage with United States flags in
their hands to the cheer of the dele
gates, thereby indicating their posi
tion on the race question. He stat
ed that this country was acquired by
the blood, brain and muscle of the
white man, that the white man had
fought its battles, acquired its inde
pendence, cleared its forests, builded
its cities and made it what it is, and
that ten thousand Republican
Conventions might meet and
indicate by their conduct their
favor of social equality, still the
white man by the help of God would
continue to control and govern.
The speaker said there were two
lines the negroes could never cross,
the line of social equality and the
political line, but so long as they
remained on their sides of these
lines they would be treated with
fairness and-justice and given all
protection the law and Constitution
afforded. In conclusion Mr. Mc
Kellar paid a splendid tribute to the
purity of charicter and ability of
Alton B. Parker, and told his au
dience that under hi- administration
the Government would be honestly,
safely and economically conducted;
that a Democratic Congress would
be necessary to assist him in the
enactment and enforcement of wise
and just laws, and that the brilliant
and brainy Malcolm R. Patterson,
Democratic nominee for Congress
from this district should be return
ed by an overwhelming majority.
Mr. McKellar was loudly applaud
ed and heartily congratulated.
