cratic nominees and disorganize the
Democratic party; But it does not
take long for the Republicans to
organize their voters; in a very
few days the leaders are' able to
direct the' course of the mass of
the party as they think to the bost
interests of the leaders, and they
will be out in full force next Tues
day, and don't you: forget it.
Tiie lower house of the Fifty-
second Congress will have just 332
members.- The Cincinnati Com
mercial Gazette, a bitter Republi
can, paper,' gives a ' table showing
the probable complexion of the
House to be 169 Democrats and-163
Republicans. This estimate, from
a Republican standpoint, indicatos
that the Democrats are in the ma
jority and should control the affairs
of our Government;. But in the
estimate furnished by the Commer
cial Gazette,. Tennessee has the
same division as lost year, while it
may be conceded that' the Demo
crats will' gain one Congressman
in this State;. Conservative Dem
ocrats estimate that the Democrats
will carry the .next House by eleven
General' Palmer is making a
vigorous campaign in Illinois, -and
the farmers are rallying under his
leadership forreform in the affairs

are drifting rapidly into the Dem
roratic ranks as the only hope for
Ck country. The Republicans in
Ale North and Northwest are be
ginning to-see that the issues that
divided the people of the United
States during the war were differ-
. ent from the issues of the present ;
that the duties of the present are
none the less important than those
of thirty years agawhen they were
united in the perpetuation of the
greuit principles of constitution
government They are uniting to
resist the result of mistaken poll
tics, and their ballots next Tuesday
will doubtless prove that the war

EX LIU JXD M'COXXELL.
A large andenthusiastie audience
assembled at the court-house last
Tuesday afternoon to hear Hon. T.
M. McConnell and Congressman
B. A. Enloe on the political issues
of the day.
T. 0. Rye, esq., introduced Mr.
McConnell in n few appropriate
and eloquent words.
Mr. McConnell spoke of the
satisfaction it gave him to meet the
people of Benton County; and for
two hours he spoke on State and
National issues. IU mado an elo
quent and logical talk, and from
the plain manner in which he show
ed how the Republican party had
legislated in favor of the few and
against the many we can not help
but feel that his talk will be the
means of bringing out an increased
Democratic vote in this county next
. Congressman Enloe followed in
a lengthy speech. He spoke of his
re-nomination by the Democracy
of the Eighth district, and how he
had discharged the duties given
him. He referred to the proced
ings of the present Congress and
Reed's rulings, and denounced
them as outrages. The necessity
of admitting new territories to
maintain protection principles was
referred to, showing how necessary
it was for the force bill to pass and
Wyoming and Idaho to be admit
ted and Reed'r rulings to prevail
in order to maintain the crime of
protection forever. The aims and
interests of protection were given,
and the people were advised to
make up their minds before next
Tuesday whether to continue to
give it encouragement.
His speech was the strongest and
most effective of the campaign, and
the people of the Eighth district
will show their appreciation of his
services at the ballot-box on next
Tuesday by returning him to Con
gress by an increased majority.
From- the State elections next
Tuesday much is expected to cheer
Democracy on to victory in 1S92.
Hope lives . eternal in the Demo
cratic breast, and the party of the
people is gaining new strength ev
ery day, and while there may be no
decisive victory, there will be evi
dence that tariff reform issues are
making inroads on Republican
strength, and that the war issues
are losing their effect with the la
borers and farmers of the North
In New York the Democrats are
confident of carrying' the general
assembly that has been so long Re
publican by gerrymandered dis
tricts. In Michigan the Bennett
law is the main issue between the
two parties, and it is confidently
thought that the Democrats will
win.- We believe that the Ohio
Democracy will triumphs In Iowa
and Nebraska the disgust of Re
publican fanners at Republican
hypocrasy in passing the McKin-
ley bill as a means of relief for the
farmers gives the Democrats a good
chance to capture those States:- In
Illinois there is good reason to ex
pect Democratic victory against
great- edds,, and in Pennsylvania
the better element of the Republi
can party will -rebuke Quay and
his corrupt ring by electing a Dem
ocratic Governor and probably a
Democratic general assembly. The
entire Northwest is likely, to be in
revolt against the McIyinley bill,
and heavy Democratic gains are
looked for. The Democrats will
make gains all over the South, and
in Tennessee they will win and gain

The Chronicle acknowledges
an invitation to attend the twenty

it deserves to be.
At every voting precinct in the
State there must be two sets of of
ficers and two ballot-boxes, and
voters are required to vote for Con
gressman in one, and Governor and
State officers in the other. Keep
this in mind when you go to the
polls next Tuesday.
The chief object of the leaders of
the Republican party is the defeat
of the Democratic nominees. Not
much noise is made, but it is the
general opinion that if they can
not accomplish this end accept
through union with the Prohibi
tionists, they will just before the
election throw their full strength
to Dr. Kelley. The Democrats
have nothing to fear in this event
if the full strength of the party is
polled, but we urge upon the De
mocracy the importance of avoid
ing all signs of danger by standing
by the party organization and pile
up the Democratic votes.

A- GOOD MOVE.
A movement is being agitated at
Chattanooga to have a bill passed
by the next legislature to put all
sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, constables,
and justices of the peace on regular
salaries. The object of this is to
break up the encouragement of friv
olous litigation too often, indulged
in by some of these officials. Speak
ing of the matter the Times of that
city says, " the history all over the
State has been that too. many pris
oners have been arrested, tried pre
liminarily, and held in jail merely
to feed the justices, deputy sheriffs,
and jailor. Soino poor but honest
fellow may be arrested for some
trivial matter, or on suspicion; he
may be taken before a justice of the
peace, and if that dignitary dismiss

not very prone to do that. The poor
devil is committed to jail in default
of $500 bond. He is too poor to
even boast of a f riend, and if he re
monstrates he is summarily dealt
with. The prisoner may be kept in
jail, as has often been the case, for
three months, yielding1 jail officers
a revenue, and at the end of that
time the case will bo nolle prossed
by the grand jury on account of
lack of evidence. The prisoner is
allowed to go' scot-free, with his
character ruined; the State pays
the costs of his detention, while the
officers continue to haul in the horde
of humanity to furnish blood money
