Our Southeast exchanges are intima
ting editorially, and we, last week,
did also speak of the possibility of
Mr. S. S. Barnes, of our city, being
a candidate for the Republican nomi
nation for congressman from this dis
trict. Now we have it almost direct
that ho is a candidate, and will stay
in the race until tho last vote is taken
in the convention. From jur ac
quaintance with Mr. Barnes, we can
safely predict that he will make it
warm for his competitors, as he never
enters into anything that he does not
make a success. He i3 a shrewd poli
tician, a successful farmer and, in his
latest enterprise, a progressive and

Sherman lndorai-3 .McKinley.
Senator Sherman, in referring to
the financial plank of the Ohio Re
publican Convention, is represented
to havo said that ''MeKinley enter
tains tho same views on silver I do
myself." Probably the Sonaior is
about right. Those aro the views
which have been hold by every Re
publican President since silver be
came an issue, beginning with Ruther
ford B. Hayes. Most of tho Repub
lican leaders outside of the mining
States have been sound on that issue
for tho past eight or ten years. Prob-
bably McKinley, if in the Presidency
would veto any free silver bill whic1
would get within his reach. Prebab
also he would veto any measure

It is plain, however, that many-
publicans are not altogether satis
with McKinley 's attitude toward

mentson tne financial plank in t
Ohio Convention's platform. Two-
thirds of tho prominent Republican
papers which we have seen call that
plank a straddle. The plank however,
is largely a reproduction of tho na
tional utterance of four years ago,
which was moderately acceptable then,
but which falls much short of the re
quirements of to-day. Something
which hits silverism harder and squar-
er is demanded by present conditions.
A declaration that the mints must be
kept closed to silver coinage until this

Did vou ever notice t'v weakness j
women have for marking their letters
"personal?" They scam to think that
by so marking the envelope the letter
will go to its destination quicker,
through the same line of reasoning
which some years ago led women to
write onevelopes"in ha 'te. "supposing
that the postman would immediately
start on a run with them. This habit
of writing ''personal" sometimes
leads to very embarrassing results.
A purely business communication ad
dressed in unmistakable feminine
hand and marked "personal'' has
been known to raise a lively row in a
usually peaceful family.
Congressman Mozley delivered an J
address to the Convention here last
Saturday and attempted to clear some
of the accusations that have been laid
at his door. In speaking of the ap
pointment of tho Democratic cadet ho
said: "I don't know his polities, I
never did know, and what is mare, I
don't care." Such words, in our
opinion, could never fall from the lips
of any true Republican. They pierced
the heart mt every Republican within
the sound of his voice, leaving a
wound which his hand can never heal,
a wound to the party that put him in
the position he now occupies, a wound
to the men who contributed money for
him to make his canvass. For thirty
years no Republican has been appoint
ed to the West Point cadotship in this
district. It was time some young Re
publican was given a chance, the only
chance for thirty long years and there
were as deserving Republican aspir
ants for the place. Generosity to his
opponents may give Mr. Mozley pleas
ure but even the Democrats were as
tonished and smiled at such misplaced
generosity. Bloomfield Cosmos.
ltayllebttn the South.
Ono f the most significant facts of
current political history is the rapid
growth of the spirit of independence
among the voters of the South. Thero
was a time when it was as much as .1
man's life was worth down there t
breakaway from the Democratic party.
It was represented to be the only pro
tection against negro domination, and
the whites were led to lielieve that they
must cling to it as a matter not onlv
of general safety, but also of personal
honor and decency. The politicians
managed to prolong this view of polit
ical duty and moral responsibility for
many jears. inns all discussion was
stifled, and such a thing as the intelli
gent and considerate exercise of the
clucti.-M franchise was practically un
known. Men voted the Democratic
tieke. on the theory that it would be
treason to the State to do otherwise.
Oniy the one party existed, l)ceause
all opposition to it was made impossi-
ble by being mado disreputable and
' dangerous, it carried elections with
out any trouble except that of an oc
cassional gunning for negroes in or
der to keep up the race superstition;
and all questions of real interest and
importance were put out of sight, sol
far as campaign speeches, newspaper'
articles and other forms of informa
tion were concerned.
This has been materially changed
in the last few years, and a new situ
ation is gradually being developed
The old cry of negro supremacy has
lost its force, and tho necessity of be
longing to the Democratic party for
the purpose maintaining the rights of
white men, and preserving the institu
tions of society is no longer recogniz
ed It does not scare men any moro
to be threatened with ostracism, cr
a worse fate, if they assert- the right
to vote as they please. In all of the
Southern-States.there is aconsiderable
clement of Independent citizens, and
in some of them this element is suf
fiecntly strong to turn the scale. The
solid South is a thing of the past.
There are two sides now in the politics
of that section, and the Democratic
party has ceased to be monarch of all
it surveys. This means that the peo
ple have begun to see the folly of the
course tha' they have been pursuing
at the instance of the leaders of that
party. They are tired of a policy that
has only served to prevent them from
gaining their due share of the pros
perity of the country. The fact has
been impressed upon them by costly
experienee that it is to their advantage
in every way to act according to-their
own judgment in politics, and to march
with the procession of enterprise and
progress. They have learned practical
wisdom, in other words, and it will
never again be possible for the Demo
cratic party to deceive or intimidate
them . G lobe-Democrat
