Large audiences are always present

Me. Beyan asks the very perti

President Roosevelt appoints negro
office holders only in the South?
Why not in tbe other sections of
the country also?
The republicans have unlimited
funds, contributed by favored trusts
and corporations, unjustly wrung
from the pockets of honest laborers,
with which they hope to buy their
way into government control; but
the indications are that principle
will predominate in this election,
and the prospect for a national dem.

Only a few of the districts of
Hardeman, so far, have organized
democratic clubs, among the num
ber beinsx 4, 5, 6, 9, 11, 14, 15, 1,
12, 18. The organization of clubs is
the method suggested by the State
Committee to create an interest and
get out the vote. There is yet time
for the organization of clubs in the
other districts of the county. Re
publicans are at work, as the heavy
registration shown in the cities in
dicate. Hardeman must not fail to
do her duty she never has but
we must get down to business.

Democratic Prospects Brightejum
Washington, Oct. 18.
Gloom dispelling lights have
flared up in New Jersey and
West Virginia, throwing wel
come rays of hope and cheer
ing the hearts of Democratic
campaign managers as have
no other developments in
the past week.
"For the first time since
the opening of the campaign
I feel hopeful of New Jer
sey," said Chairman Cowherd
of the Democratic Congress
ional Campaign Committee
today to The Commercial
Appeal correspondent. Iam
in receipt of advices from our
campaign managers in that
State, and without exception
the opinion prevails that the
Democrats have a good chance
to .yin the fight. Up to the
past few daj7s it looked as if
the Democrats would lose
New Jersev, hut the situa
tion has changed materially
since then, and tangible hope
is offered. The Democratic
factions have united, every
wrinkle in the situation
having been ironed out, leav
ing a smooth and uniippled
surface. This applies to the
Smith and the anti-Smith
factions, which for a while
threatened Democratic suc
cess. It seems to be well
nigh settled that thousands
of Republicans will bolt the
Republican ticket on the
local question of equal tax
ation. The Democratic plat
form stands for equal taxation
and the Republicans declared
for the old order of things.
There is hardly a doubt that
Black, the Democratic nom
inee for Governor, will be
elected, and he may pull the
National Democratic ticket
through with him." -
From West Virginia reas
suring tidings were received
today at Congressional Com
mittee headquarters. The
source of this information en
titles it to the fullest meas
ure of credence. It came
from ex-Senator Faulkner, of
West Virginia, former chair
man of the Democratic Na
tional Congressional Com
mittee, and represents his
first official estimate of the
situation in that State. In
a letter to Chairman Cow
herd to-day, ex -Senator
Jb aulkner said that Democrat
ic prospects in West Virginia
were brightening, the situa
tion having been greatly im
proved by the whirlwind
campaign of ex-Senator Da
vis, the vice presidential
nominee, and his party of
seasoned campaigners. It is
not predicted that the Dem-
ocratic iNationai tiCKet is
going to carry the State, but
the chances of 1 arker and
Davis have improved consid
erably, and will grow bright
er as the State Democratic
ticket gathers strength. In
dications of victory for the
latter are very encouraging.
As in New Jersey, the ab
sorbing issue in West Vir
ginia is taxation, the Dem
ocrats advocating reform in
the system so as to equalize
the burden. On this vital
issue they have the Republi
cans on the defensive.
Washington, October 12 From
tbe beginning a sectional p3rty, and
always a minority party, tbe Ke
publican party. stole tbe Presidency
in 1STG 77, bought it i l 1880 and
18S8, and is prepared to buy it
again in 1904. Their program is
to let the trusts make the tariff, and
the trusts will buy tbe election.
That is why it is that Mr. Cortel
you, tbe chief-of-staff of "the parly
of great moral ideas," has more
money than you can shake a slick at
and it will be put where it will do
the most good, to borrow a phrase
from an eminent and typical Re
publican statesunn of the Credit
Mobilier epoch. In 18S8 Boss
Quay, with the enormous boodle
fund raised by John Wanamaker,
threw hU millions iuto Brooklyn
and carried New York for Harrison.
The money Quay had in 1888 was
beggarly compared with what Cor
telyou has in 1904, and which will
be lavished on the states that the
Democrats are bouud to have to'
succeed. New York, ludiana, Js'ew I
Jersey and Colorado are to be j
bought all right if they are for,

To show that our wayside village
has at last given signs of awakening
from a monotonous slumber, we in
troduce our bit of brief news by
copying an article taken from the
Baptist and Reflector of Oct. 6th,
which bears the signature of J. M.
Curry, and reads as follows: "Our
pastor, Bro. U. A. West, assisted
by Bro. D. A. Ellis, closed a meet
iug on last Thursday night with
wonderful results. There were
about 25 professions of faith, 23
additions to the church, 17 by bap
tism, 5 bv letter, and 1 by restora
tion. The church has been won
derfully revived. Three years ago
we had no pastor and the member
ship was very email. But during
tbe three years that Bro. West has
been with us, there has been great
good accomplished. Bro. Ellis
preaches the old time religion and
it has the old time ring. We have
a great outlook for the future. We
therefore ask the prayers of all of
God's people everywhere." Bro.
Curry has frankly expressed the
facta as they have been found at
Toone and the new life that has
been aroused in our community
seems of a thoroughly contagious
