The final triumph ot Democratic
doctrine is as certain as the final
perseverance of the saints. It is
founded in the bed-rock of eternal
justice; equal rights to all, special
privileges to none.

charter amendments, about one

The flood situation on the Missis
sippi is not only not abated, but is
not even abating. The levees are
holding remarkably well, but the
breaks here and there have flooded
thousands of acres, and continues to
spread. The damage in the last few
days has not been very great, but
the total damage from the begin
ning is almost incalculable.
"The Kentucky Senatorial dead
lock remains unbroken. The Demo
crats are still voting for Blackburn,
the goldites for State Senator Henry
Martin, 60 of the Republicans for
their caucus nominee, Dr. Hunter,
and the others scattering. This
foolishness is costing the tax pay
-ers of Kentucky about one thousand
dollars a day. If the legislators can
not agree, they should agree to disa
gree and go home.
We wish to congratulate the
County Court for its action last
Tuesday in Bitting down very hard
upon that little job which the rail
road was trying to work upon the
county. The railroad company was
seeking to increase its yard limits at
Mt. Pleasant at the expense of the
county, and though the road com
missioners of the 12th and 13th dis
tricts, had condemned land under
the guise of a public road. But the
parties interested appealed to the
County Court and the scheme was
very properly nipped in the bud.
The County Fathers said that the
commissioners had no right to con
demn land for railroad purposes.
William J. Bryan appeared be
fore the Supreme Court of the
United States at Washington last
Tuesday, in the case of the Rail
roads' against the Nebraska State
Board of Transportation. Mr. Bry
an was associated with the Attorney
General of the State as counsel.
The case on hearing involved the
constitutionality of an Act of Ne
braska "to regulate railroads, to
classify freights, to fix reasonable
maximum rates to be charged for
the transportation of freights, etc."
Mr. Bryan made a profound argu
ment in favor of railroad regulation
and insisted that "the rights of citi
zens to reasonable rates is as sacred
as those of railroads to reasonable
The easy and inglorious defeat of
the proposed bill to amend the char
ter of Columbia, is nothing more
than should have been expected.
And it shows how culpable chris
tian people are, when they preach
good morals and talk temperance,
and yet allow such measures as
this to pass by default. We con
gratulate the good people of Colum
bia that their moral sensibilities are
so awake to their owu interests.
The readiness with which the Re
formers accepted the gage of battle,
6hows that they sleep with their
armor on, and the precision and
promptness and strength with
which they delivered a clean knock
out blow the first round, shows what
an irresistible power for good they
are in this community. They can
win just as easily in the municipal
election next November. They
have the strength, the influence and
the right all on their 6ide, and to
achieve another sweeping victory
all they have to do is to get out and
do it. Aui they w!M.
The negro is an enigma. In poli
tics he is mean and mulish. ou
may warm and feed and clothe him
from infancy to old ago, a,nd the
first chance he gets lie will vote for
vour bitterest political enemy over
your most earnest entreuties. The
next day if he gets into trouble lie
will rush straight to his Democratic
friends, with perfect trust and con
fidence, nothing abashed by bis
political treachery of the day before.
Memphis now is taking care of,
feeding and clothing, thousands of
these water waifs, and if an elecbion
was sprung to-morrow a Republican
carpet-bagger could corral the whole
gang and vote them against the
very men who have kept them from
starvation, lo endure such base
ngratitude as this, year in and year
out, requires a great deal of chris
tian forbearance, and the condition
is becoming exceedingly tiresome.
The elections held in various cities
in Ohio last Monday resulted in
large Democratic gains. At Cincin-!
nati the Democratic ticket won by j
a plurality of 7,320, while the city
gave McKinley a plurality of almost
20,000 last November, and Caldwell,
Republican, for Mayor, three years
ago, a plurality of 0,755. At Detroit,
Mich., the Democratic nominee for
Mayor won by about 1,000 majority,
and at Canton, Ohio., Major Rice,
Democrat, was re-elected by nearly
600 majority. But from Chicago
comes the most cheering news.
Carter Harrison, free silver Demo
crat, was elected Mayor by 85,000
majority and upward, a Democratic
gain of 136XX). Returns from numer
ous other cities show that the Re
publicans are already losing their
foothold, and the free silver senti
ment shows stronger than it did last
The county is making a mistake
in asking authority from the legis
lature to issue bonds, and if they get
that authority they will make a
still greater mistake if they exercise
it. Bonds are bad things. They
relieve the strain on the treasury
lor the time, and just as soon as"
that strain is relieved, extrava
gances begin. It need not be so?
but it almost invariably is. So long
as the debt is a floating one and the
creditors are importunate, economy
prevails; uut wnen nve, ten or
twenty-year bonds are issued and
the interest is provided for, the debt
is forgotton. The people ar op
posed to bonds. Experience has
taught them that the bond issue
habit ia a most pernicious one. And
yet our public servants, state, poun
ty and corporations, are forever
starting some new bond project
The people of the districts should
interest themselves in this matter
and have it stopped, for they are
the ones who must pay the interest
Action now can prevent it; kicking
hereafter will do no good.
ihe herald nas not taKen any
stock in the Nashville Centennial,
and neither do we intend to. We
have not wanted any of our money
to be given thein in exchange for
nothing, and the quality of their
patriotism lias never appealed to our
hearts or changed our first impres
eions. But the time has come now
when we seem to be approaching a
busiuess proposition. The Nash
ville people have offered premiums
amounting to $1,200 for the best
mules and a like sum for jacks, and
as Maury County has the best mules
and finest jacks on earth ,we see no
good reason why our people should
not take their stock to the show and
capture these premiums. In fact,
we think they ought to. For while
the Centennial will do us no good
the premiums would ; not only for
the purses, but for the name of the
thing hereafter. It would be a good,
advertising card in the future, to
send abroad to the world, that Maury
is the banner mule and jack county
of the world, and ha proven her
claim by premium ribbons from the
World's Fair, the Atlanta Exposi
tion and the Nashville Centennial.
This would be an advertisement
builded on something and would
pay, and we suggest to our mule and
jack dealers that they embrace the
The Raging Duck.
The boom struck Maury County
last Saturday; not the gold standard
prosperity boom, however, but a
boom of waters. The heavy rains
Friday and Saturday made old
Duck rise like a mountain stream,
and Sunday it reached the 32-foot
mark on the gauge at Columbia.
Part of the dam at Ashton's Mill
succumbed to the turbulent waters
and was swept away, but the river
has not yet fallen enough to esti
mate the damage.
Other streams throughout the
county were also on a rampage, and,
although they did not get as nigh as
they did about two weeks before,
the amount of damage done was al
most as grea. The farmers had
just finished replacing their fences
and other property which had been
washed away, when the freshet
came along again and gave them
some more work to do. Many acres
of valuable bottom land were inun
dated and the crops which had been
sown thereon ruined. The farmer
has indeed been sorely tried this
year, and he is sadly behind with

The bill had passed the House 1
with ease, but when it reached the
Senate every method known to
Earliamentary law was employed to
lock its passage. The Republicans
with one accord voted against -the'
bill every time it was brought up.
When the consideration of the re-j
port of the conference committee;
was resumed in the morning session,,
quite a number of speeches were
made for and against it... ,The
previous question was called, and
the Senate failed to sustain the re
port, the vote being the same as on

The Chairman, Mr. Smithson, re
ported that the committee had
recommended that the Senate recede
from all of its amendments to the

with the Republicans against the

The Leonidas Polk Bivouac and

met in regular monthly session last
Monday at the Court-house. This
meeting was an unusually interest
ing one, it being the occasion of the
annual election of officers and a
sieech-making by Gen. John C.

distinguished orator and ex-Confederate.
Gen. Underwood is work

the purpose of arousing old Con

a sense of duty and patriotism, and
for the purpose of providing means
to secure money for the Abbey.
The court-room was crowded with
people to hear him, and he made an
excellent talk to the Bivouac. He
expressed great pleasure in being
here and was glad to see such a
large and enthusiastic bivouac of

bivouac he addressed the Daughters
of the ' Confederacy, and made a

Vantlerbllt Glee Club.
A complimentary audience, con
sidering the nasty English weather,
greeted the Vanderbilt Glee Club at
the Opera House last Saturday
night, and were well repaid for their
venture. Those who braved the
storm and went, were prepared for
someting good, but were agreeably
surprised in having something bet
ter still, every piece on the program
being well done and much enjoyed.
The recitations by Mr. Manlove were
particularly pleasing, and his im
personation of the Englishman was
simply great. He received and
obligingly responded to repeated en
cores. Mr. Thomas, in his negro
songs. "De New Bully," and "Mis-;
ter Johnson," was also vociferously ;
applauded and heartily encored,
and the mandolin solo, "Southern
Hell," by Mr. Le Barge, was another 1
one of the palpable hits of the even- j
ing. After the program was con
eluded tho visitors were tendered a
reception at the Century Club,
where they were entertained until
the midnight hour. Those receiving
them were Misses Virginia Carpen-

An exceptionally large audience
greeted Prof. A. H. Merrill, of the
Vanderbilt University, at the How
ard Institute, Mt. Pleasant, last Fri
day evening, and listened with de
light to hia most charming recitals.
There is something so altogether
natural, easy and graceful, about
Prof. Merrill, that one is entirely
relieved of that dread of overdoing,
that sympathy with short comings,
that pervading uneasiness attend
ing most recitals, and nothing is
left but to listen and enjoy. His
selections this evening were chiefly
from Rip Van Winkle, and he im
personated with equal truenesS the
scolding Gretchen, the loving Mene
and the good natured Old Uip. To
give the leading lines of Rip Van
Winkle, and impersonate all its
most important characters, without
the aid or assistance of any dis
guises or stage effects, is a most
difficult thing for one man to do;
but so naturally, so eusily, so grace
fully did Prof. Merrill do his work,!
that his audience was lost In ad
miration and enjoyment and had no
time either for criticism or wonder.
In this o:ie evening Prof. Merrill
and lit. Pluarjaui .Vt.ro .n.ilt -tiv !g

audience, and they with him, and
among the pleasures inoident to the
occasion was the delightful hospi'

His subject was "Tempsrence," and

structive and entertaining to the
large audience facing him.
