Vtion is conspicuous in tho
?osition of tho Northern press

is true. Thoy aro ablo to see no

li/.ation that capital is due a much

; government than it has heretofore
rne and so thoy have rallied around
itnd are ready to light. For the
jsont wo believe that thoy will win.
An income tax allccting only porsons
ample income, and that is tho kind
ntomplated, necessarily implies that
boring men who have only what their
ily toil returns will not feel It and
< counter inforenco goes with it
g the fund which Hows continually
om investments, would be the real
mtributor. It is upon the devising of
system of taxation which will accom
plish this that tho future safety and
peace of this country not less than its
prosperity is dependent.
It is folly to ignore the tremendous
political disturbance which is agitat
ng the South and West. When a
tr?ng wind blows the face of the
?arth is always changed ami sometimes
\ Is strown with wreckage. A gale is
?owing among the producing classes,
ruo, pitifully and disgracefully true
..s it always is, that the demigogue has
grabbed his opportunity and made tho
most of it, to the general confusion
and checking of good progress, but the
causes and forces aro at work nevor
* thcloss. And this wind is dangerous.
Itwore hotter that it bo porceived by
patriotic Democrats that harm will
ovontually result unless the patriots
in the party put tlm governmental
ship in shape to ride tho waves.
It is easy to agree with Eastern Dem
ocrats that the sub-treasury scheme
and the railroad ownership hobby are
pieces of such preposterous folfy that
thoy do not deserve national attention,
but if the laws aro to be maintained
^for tho Shcor purpOSO Of entailing
wealth upon a class then a revolt is
suro to come and dim outlines in front
are not always spectres.
We arc not writing a third party ed
^'?<al. We bolicvo that Democracy
i ; he true theory of this government
and that its principles will linasly shape
its destiny but there are conditions
which Democracy must me.et or there
will be trouble and this one which
exempts capital from taxation is the
iminent one now.
XAVo rise to inquire if tho large ele

violontly optposed to Third Partyism

ally themselves with the faction of

Tho Irby faction claims to bo lighting
a faction which embodies a strong
third party sentimont and horalds it
self as Democratic. It must bo con
fessed that the apparent bigness of
Mr. Bowdon among tho opposlto group
looks suspicious. Mr. Bowdcn would
probably consider that ho -was doing
tho country a service by delivering
this Stato to tho Woavoritos. Wo
havo somo respect for Mr. Bpwden'u
political motives too, if not his crood,
and do not condemn his' independence,
but ho ought to havo moro respect for
himself than to allow his name to ho
connected with what sots itself up us
a democratic organization. Yes,
Brother Bowdon has no part' nor lot
oven among masquerading Democrats
unless he recants.
But Senator Irby, he endorses reso
lutions which favor "all the Ocala do
mauds," not one, twd'or three but all,
