HE CAMDEN CHRONIC
CAMDEN, TENNESSEE, FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1890.
Tins more the Atlanta Constitu
tion advertises its boycottish pro
clivities, the keener do tho people
feel the recent loss of a great ed
itor. Memphis Appeal.
What we want in this country is
not so much reform in the method
cf executing criminals as more se
verity in tho punishment of mur
derers. Louisville Post.
1 " To hell with the surplus!" cried
Corp. Tanner. "To hell with the
inland seas!" yelled Speaker Reed.
It seems to be n favorite Republi
can practice to order things sent
on ahead. Columbia Democrat.
Mb. Quay has come to the defi
nite conclusion that the Republi
can party can earn moro votes by
fraud in the whole country than it
can by force in the South, and that
there is no use in passing the elec.
tion bilk--Memphis Avalanche.
" 'Tis conscience that makes cow
ards o! us all." We repeat that tho
Republicans in Congress would not
dread debate if this were an honest
tariff bill. It is a jumble of impo
sitions, a plan of organized robbery,
and its creators are afraid of the
light. Utica (N. Y.,) Observer.
According to a local organ "the
Republican party has no higher
dutv than to reform elections.
Reform, like charity, should begin
at home. You should stop buying
" floaters m blocks of five m In
diana and " purchasing voters en
bloe" in this city and Brooklyn
before you take charge of reform
ing other people.-.? ew York Yorld,
Theee are but two colored men
in the Mississippi constitutiona

publican papers as evidence tha
the negro citizens are denied their
civil and personal rights m the
South, let there are two more
colored men in the Mississippi con
vention than were ever in any of
ficial body in aU4he New England
iStates together. Memphis Ava.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (Re
publican) says of Speaker Reed
"That man has abused his trust
and carried his dictatorial policy a
step too far. The Republican party
has had enough of Mr. Reed, un
less he changes front, and that
quickly. If he has left any of the
shrewdness, which brought him to
his present exalted position, he
will heed the murmuring of dis
content that must soon become the
roar of mutiny."1
George 0. Jones, the faithful
priest who is keepin
back coal alive upon
his fathers, has called his feeble
followers to meet him in Indian
apolis on the 27th instant to resolve

organization for some years, and
now that the silver inflationists are
at the front what hope can they
have of a successful flooding of the
country with fiat money? New
The force bill is probably dead

flip nnnroachmsr elections should
be favorable to the Republicans
they will probably tako it up and
