of tho Stttto ls enjoying a season of
unprecedented tranquility on the
eve of a political campaign, Lau

"fanner-' movement." Now,jus!

indications wo are lcd to believe
that this movement, at leas! in this
County, has u?sum< i an entirely
different shade from that which
Mr. TILLMAN originated.
lt has boon currently reported I
that the recent caucus, composed
of .seventeen representative farm
ers, who met here last week, had
favorably .considered tho proposi
tion to recommend a sid of candi
datos to their fellow-farmers.
This report TH I: ADV r. HT rs KU be
lieves to be without foundation.
Wo do not believe thal sueh men
as tllOSO referred to, could SO fat
lose sight of (he plan and purposes
Which Mr. TILLMAN says prompted
him in seeking the organization of
farmer-, as to tum the whole thing
into a pollHodl ring to facilitate
log-rolling. The time has passed
when the you-tlckle-mo-l-tieklo
