Now conies the report that Senator
McLaurin Inn asked to be str iken
from the rolls of the Democratic caucus
lf this he true, then Mr. MoLaurln
oreases to regard himself a Democrat.
He has generally voted with the Re
publicans on cruolul party tests.
To give the devil his due though the
quotation Is not strictly applicublo to
as lightly mischievous a politician as
th? milk torn peratu red MoLaurln,?his
course lias not been inconsistent with
his whole cnieerof fantubtio cortor
When Mr. McLaurin was a candidate
for the Senate in tin: IVU7 primary, his
political affiliations and tendencies
wer?, pointed out and -trussed by news
papers strenuously opposed to his elec
tion, lie took the platform declaring
with only a gauzy prcfersu of conceal
ment for policies that meant the in
evitable annihilation of the Democratic
party if carried out He was pilloried
during that campaign us the friend and
er.iis-ary of Tom Ueod and the Repub
lican party in the Democratic ranks, ns
the receiver and the beneficiary of Re
publican largo*?, as the new evangel
of every heresy that the spirit of Jef
ferson Beeuied to contemn.
But?but?bu-?the stentorian voices
Of the Democratic Pret?B in the Slate

that tho almighty deal got in its work
and McLaurin WHS elected. True only
about hslf the Di mocrats of the State

In his elootion, true ho received fur less,
than half of the state's Democratic
vote, but, with a full knowledge

He has boon on hand from time im
memorial. Helen was so beautiful a
Princess that all tho Grecian 1'rlncee
(rejected lovers) took a solemn oath, if
she should be insulted or outraged
they would make common cause and
vindicate her honor. Paris, a Trojan
Prince, captivated by her charms, c n
trlved to kidnap and carry her to Troy,
the city of Priam, his father. All the
Greek 1 Vinci s called upon to resent t be
outrage and summoned to bring their
quota of armed men responded, except
Ulysses, who kicked, and being in love
with his wife Penelope bad no smell for
tho war, pretending lunacy. They
found him ploughing the sands of the
sea shore and iueapab'e of coherent
