The Ohio idea promulgated by
the Democrats of that State, is a
most excellent one. It proposes to
break up trusts by taking away the
protection the tariff gives them
a principle that is going to win in

the Republicans of the Eighth Ten-
nessee Congressional District still
indorsing AVabren Smith for Con
gressional nominee ?
It has been reported that a num
ber of Republicans will attempt to
vote in the primaries September
'20.. We advise the committeemen
to be- on their guard let none
but Democrats vote in the prima
ries, for no Republican will vote
for a Democratic nominee, and no
true Democrat desires to. be in any
way bound to support a nominee
who is at all dependent upon Re
publican votes for his nomination
The Democratic btate conven
tion nominated a good ticket and
there can bo no just ground for ob
iection against it by any loyal Dem
ocrat or good citizen, but that the
ringsters and schemers and chronic
grumblers will feecretly oppose it,
goes without saying. However,
the convention was conducted by
practical and influential men in
the Democratic party, who drew
up a platform that no sensible cit
izen can object to and upon which
John P. Buchanan will be elected
rinvprnnr of Tennessee by over
thirty thousand majority.
