That nUeped Democratic "land
slide'' in the Sirth district was
simply a slide of scared Demo
crats towards the polls. Whllrt
ninty per cent of the Democrat
voted thirty pjr cant of ths Re
publicana took n o part ia the
election. It i a useedinaly
doubtful whether Dickinson ft
ceived 100 Hepuhllrsn votaa la
the entire district. Tht lie as b
hoars didn't i.ttsch particular
importance to the electioa while
the Democrat a were nor active
than ia a National campaign.
That Sixth district election baa
very little pontics! sigsificanc.
Recent occurences at Washing
ton show that Cannoa baa no
atrangle hold on tbe Republican
party, as our democratic breth
ren hare said. lie has bee a tak
en off of the committee on Roles,
and has again been elected speak
er, by a majority vote of 37. The
majority wants him as speaker,
and also do not want him on the
committee of rules. Dow differ
ent is the hold that tbe old ajaard
democracy has on tbe democratic
party! Tbe old guard has a bold
that the better element of the
party can never break, a a d a
bold that is strangling the very
existence of that party. Cannon
has never been accused of dis
honesty in his work in Congress
and even his enemies give him
credit for doing what he flruly
believed waa right. Again w e
find the parallel in the old gaard
and democracv except that the
old guard has been accused of
crimes, and has never done its
work from a sense of right, but
of might. Witness the defeat of
Joseph W. Folic for insUne.

A traveling sales mis told the
Times editor, Thursday that ia
some localities the mail order
business had killed the business
of towns and the farmers were
beginning U realise that ia kill
ing t h a local towns they had
cansed their farms to depreciate
in value. This was the cat a in a
more marked dee ree in the
northern and eastera states. B.
There is a great deal of mail
order business done in this town
and vicinity and its effects are
seen in this town. When the
town is so far gone that tbe mer
chants have te keep a little old
cheap Jnhn stock of goods ia
stead of the splendid stocks
which they hsve heretofore car
ried, then the farmers nearby
will realize that the value of their
land has depreciated rather thaa
experience the genwral advance
which there would b e with a
thriving home patronized town
Farmers and citisens don't I

and see that if spent at home

The "Tariff system" Is blani. d
