Cut Them Out.
Tho Now York stale Democratic
convention was another evidence
ol' tho internal light which has
torn asunder tho parly for years
and rendered thom absolutely
worthless as far as winning any
thing is concerned. They carry
their personal and peevish.grudges
into the elect ion and often kip fe
the nomin?os of their own party
-mnpl.v and solely tho,\ happened
r?<>! to bo their own ? hoico candi
11 seems to us in this place that
:liiv democratic party needs to oO
rid of some elements which have
been a 11.oi n in its sido for yours.
Mon who aro in the party simply
lol' tlioir own personal ends and
who light their personal battles,
caroing tho pu
wolfaro s : i- ; out
pasturo ' thums* I os
onough tho uomoeruUo party has
fed at tho trough of thc northern
follower of trusts, combinations,
and grafters. Long enough has it
listoncd to thc voice of tho siron
whispering1 that tho way to win is
to nominate some New Yorker or
other northern man. Long
enough has it adopted platforms
arid nominated candidatos at the
bidding ol' a few dirty politicians.
We believe and believo honestly
that the time has come for the
party to cut loose from these
moorings and lix its own path.
The south furnishes the votes
which count and we say let them
furnish the platform, the candi
dates, and the bosses. Time a?
bout is fair-play and we say let
the. so called democrats seek other
lields and other folds unless they
will take thc choice of tho south
and vole tho ticket which is nomi
nated by thc southern democrats.
