The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh "Williams, Editor.
Friday, September ie, i.04.
Littleton expresses himself as
well pleased with the joint debate.
He must be easily satisfied.
Tom Watson, populite candidate
for President, is touring the South,
abusing both the republican and
democratic" parties, principally the
Replblicans are making deeper
ate efforts to reduce the democratic
majority in Tennessee, and some o
the more enthusiastic have a hope
of carrying the State. Will dem
ocrats 'allow them to do it?
As a supplement, we send ou
with to day's Bulletin the speech
of Gov. Frazier, delivered at the
opening of the campaign in Jackson
All -who were not fortunate enough
to hear it, should read the speech
Democratic clubs are being or
ganized all over lennessee, ana
Hardeman County, one of the bul
warks of democracy, must not be
behind the balance of the procession
Elsewhere appears a call for a meet
ing of the democrats of the Cth dis
trict for that purpose next Monday
merht, upon which occasion the
Bulletin hopes that a large at
tendauce will be present.
Elsewhere we publish a list o
the amounts in the hands of the
Trustee due the different districts
on account of the road and schoo
funds. In some of the districts o
Hardeman Uounty the roads are
said to be almost impassible, and
vet there is money here to their
credit. This money cannot be used
for any other purpose or for any
better purpose, and why not spend
Judge Levi S. Woods paid a high
compliment last week to the Chair
man and Clerk of our County Court
for the neat acd business-like man
ner in which the bonds of the ofii
cers of the County were- prepared,
Btatirur that they were in better
shape than any he had seen since he
had been upon the bench. The
truth about the matter is, there are
no better business men in Hardeman
County than Dave Mc'Anulty and
Thurston Prewitt, and our people
are fortunate in having them in the
important positions they occupy.
Apropos of the joint debates be
tween the gubernational candidates,
there is a probability that the Hon.
Malcolm R. Patterson, the Dem
ocratic candidate for congress in the
Tenth congressional district, and
his Republican opponent, A. Grant
Matthews, will meet upon the hust
ings to present their claims to the
voters of the district. Some weeks
ago the the chairman of the Repub
lican congressional executive com
mittee, II. BAnderson, forwarded
a communication to K. D. McKel
lar, chairman of the Democratic
congressional executive committee,
enclosing a challenge for a series of
joint discussions from Mr. Matthews,
and the Democratic committee is to
be -called together to take action
It -i rli nllonrro onrf thora ia
nnon tne cnauensre, anu mere is
every reason to believe that it will
be accepted and that there will be
a conference between the representa
tives of the committees to agree
upon tiraes and places for the dis
cussions. Mr. Matthews and Mr.
Patterson have both expressed
themselves as favoring the proposi
tion to have the joint debates, and
it is more than likely that their
wishes in the matter will be granted.
Both are good campaigners and The
discussions will be a treat to the
sovereign voters of the district. .

Threat of the fif publicans.
"Not content with having
rvo ruinated a candidate who
had taught by his personal
examplethe pernicious doc
trine of social equality be
tween the Anglo-Saxon and
the "African races, the Re
publican party has gone still
further, and as if bent upon
the mischievous design of ag
gravating racial antagonism,
it has deliberately proclaimed
its intentions to reduce the
representation of certain
states in Congress and in the
electoral College because the
people of those states will
not consent to be represent
ed by ignorant and inferior
men. The Republican par
ty has committed many grave
mistakes during the fifty
years of its existence, but I
doubt if it has committed a
graver one than this new cru
sade against the South.

been a Cumberland Presby
