The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
Friday, September 2, 1904.
Frank James, the noted despera
do, announces for Roosevelt.
Tough characters and rough riders
The democratic party iu Tennes
see is thoroughly united and will
give Ciov. r razier a majority over
his republican opponent that will
reach up into the thousands.
liOB iaylob has onered his ser
vices to the State Committee and
will make a number of speeches
throughout Tennessee. By all
means we should have him come to
Bolivar, lie will draw a crowd,
the like of which has not been seen
here in years. We suggest that our
county committee take the matter
up at once.
After the November election,
David B. Hill, of New York, an
nounces his intention of retiring
from politics. He has been a pow
er in the political councils of the
nation for years. Like all men of
strong and positive character, he
has enemies. In his own state,
whatever cause he espoused, how
ever just, was sufficient to array op
position. He has been honored
with the governorship of New York
served in the United States Senate
from that state, besides filling many
other positions of minor importance
He is a democrat to the core, and is
one of ablest members of the party
He has simply tired of politica
RoosEVKLTisit and its results can
be seen every day manifesting them
selves moat unhappily all over the
country from Oyster Bay to the
Gulf. The white people of the
South should be warned and not en
couraged this evil spirit among
them. Toying with republicanism o
independentism at this time is play
ing with fire. It is dangerous in
the extreme. No matter what else
Democracry means or what its eins
it means in this section, white sup
remacy and every vote and every
comfort given the enemies of Demo
cracy is a dacrcrar thrust at white
It is hih time that the white
people of the South realize this and
get in line. Self seeking politicians
who would lead and lure them away
from the ranks of Democracy which
ehould be unbroken, are enemies to
their race and section. They are
inviting calamity and choas. They
are inviting conditions more appall
ingr than existed in reconstruction
times and of which the Statesboro
Ga., affair is only a mile sample.
An end should be put to all this
and the white people should stand
together, Kepublicans who are
ashamed of their party joining
them. Commercial Appeal.
Who'll Speak Softly?
"Speak softly and carry a big
stick and vou'Il cro far." said Mr,
Roosevelt but how far will we go
f Mr. Roosevelt is to do the speak
ng? Surely he is not a President of
soft speech. Without any disre
spect it may fairly be said that he
is an international bully.
That was not soft speech when
he made the Pickwickian and alto
gether unnecessary protest to Rus
sia. They were not soft orders, those
mistaken and superfluous ones which
he gave to the United States battle
ship at Bierut.
It is not speaking softly when he
utters threats against South Ameri
can nations which do not respect
themselves or their financial obliga
tions. It is not speaking softly when he
extols the glories of war and stumps
the country with bellicose orations.
It is not soft speaking when he
adjures soldiers to love.fight fcr its
own sake and bemoans the fact that
there wasn't enough of the Spanish
War to go 'round.
We have the big stick in the
form of a powerful and enlarging
navy and a competent army and we
need now a soft voice. The fact
that the big stick is carried by the
Commander in Chief with thei
strident voice and overbearing man
ner is precisely what makes the
country uneasy. St. Louis Republic.
The Democrats of Madison coun-
ly are inspired with the old-time
Democratic enthusiasm. The Jack-1
son Whig says: "There is no better j
or purer Democracy in Tennessee or!
the South than the brand o Mad-
ison county Democrats. They are,
warp and filling all wool and a
yard wide. We are going to give
Gov. Frazier an old-time Democrat-
ic welcome on Monday, Sept 5, and
we should make this, the opening
of the campaign, a memorable oc
casion. We want to start off with
an enthusiasm that snau grow
stronger and stronger for the entire
ticket until in -November we shall
roll up a majority of 35,000 for
arker and Frazier in Tennessee,
We want the biggest gathering of
Democrats here on September 5.

Menace To The Constitution.
It becomes desirable to call at
tention to the fact that the people,
in whom all power resides,
seen fit, through the medium of the
Constitution, to limit the eovern-
W - - - - O
to departments created bv if -Thus
to aepartments created by it. nus
far shalt thou go and no farther."
To secure the ends sought the peo
pie have by the Constitution sep
arated and distributed among the
three departments of government
the executive, legislative and
judicial certain powers, and it is
the duty of those administering
each department so to act as to pre
serve, rather than to destroy, the
potency of the co-ordinate branches
of the government, and thus secure
the exercise of all the powers con
ferred by the people.
Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to
William C. Jarvis, touching the per
petuity of our institutions, written
many years after he had retired to
private life, said; "If the three
powers of our government maintain
their mutual independence of each
other, it may last long, but not so
if either can assume the authority
of the other." It must be confessed
that in the course of our history ex
ecutives have employed powers not
belonging to them: statutes have
been passed that were expressly for
bidden by the Constitution, and
statutes have been set aside as un
constitutional when it was difficult
to point out the provisions said to
be offended against in their enact
ment: all this has been done with a
good purpose, no doubt, but in dis
regard, nevertheless, of the fact
that ours is a government of laws,
not of men, deriving its "just pow
ers from the consent of the govern
ed." If we would have our govern
ment continue during the ages to
come, for the benefit of those who
shall succeed us, we must ever be
on our guard against the danger of
usurpation of that authority which
resides in the whole people. From
Judge Alton B. Parker's address of
acceptance August 10th, 1904.
W. II. Harrison, Cleveland, Miss.,
writes, Aug. 15, 1902: I want to
say a word of praise for Ballard's
Snow Liniment. I stepped on a
nail, which caused the cords in my
legs to contract and an abscess to
rise in my knee, and the doctor
told me that I would have a stiff
leg, so one day I went to J. F.
Lord's drug store (who is now in
Denver, Col.) He recommended a
bottle of Snow Liniment; I got a
50c size, and it cured my leg. It
is the best liniment in the world.
Abscesses, with few exceptions,
are indicative of constipationor de
bility. They may, however, result
from blows or foreign bodies, in
troduced into the skin or flesh,
such as splinters, thorns, etc. Sold

gathered from more than 200 oil
mills throughout the cotton belt of
the South by the Gulf Ports Trading
Company of tbisity, estimates the
yield of the present cotton crop at
11,500,000 bales. The Texas and

various States is as follows: Arkan-(

cent: Texas and the Indian Territo-

cept Arkansas the crop is from one

The report concludes: "Much, of
