Whether wo woro boatonon Tuesday
last dei/nds upon who "wo" are. Un
questionably what our distinguished
rWite Chairman rolls upon his tonguo,
the "organized democracy" in those
united States was knocked completely
out. As far as the East is from the
West, and In the intervening and sur
rounding territory the democrats and
! all its counterfeits woro oycloned und
burled out of sight. Tho only consola
tion left lies in tho reflection that tho
democracy beaten was what a wool
hat anti in this county describes vory
grapically as a bastard domooracy..
Let us recur. Pour years ago wo had
a solid South and that meant an un
brokon phalanx of white mon standing'
shoulder to shoulder. In 1890 the lltad
of isms, began to oreop in and disin
tegrate, but still in 1893 there was
enough solidity \n the South to keep
up an unbroken front and along with
the Northern wing to break tho ro
tr^hlioan linos and put Cleveland in
?Vlth a rush and fill tho Houso and tho
Senate with a working majority of so
oalled democrats. But.it proved a sad
aggregation; the so-called democratic
Congress, Senate and Houso, was a
fraud, a monagorio of strange animals,

with populism, third-party-ism, Till

all mixed and adulterated with re
publ.lcAnism and n small fraction of

condition over tho South und the West
to which our Governor has boon look

tho tug of war. At tho North aro

tho South and beyond tho Mississippi.
Forty millions cun boat twenty millions

alarmed at tho Southern outlook and
wo soo tho result. But the funny
thing amidst all tho involution lies in
tho fact thatl oven bleeding Kansas,

When failure to relieve has occurred, I have imputed it to insuffi

the statement that I regard it as one of the best, if not the best, Lithia
