In the county race, just as
men were defeated aa those
were elected ; and vice , versa.
Herald in all sincerity and
faith therefore, can "rejoice
those who do rejoice and weep with
those who weep."
In the selection of Mr. Hight for
sheriff, our Populite friends have at
latt secured for one of their number
one of the best oftices in the county.
But this race was not run on politi
cal erounds; and not by his politics
but by his works must Mr. Hight be
judged ; and by this test the Her
ald indulges the hope and is in
clined to the belief that the county
will find in him an upright and effi
cient officer. .
Hardly if ever any man received
a more flattering endorsement than
did Mr. Granbery for Trustee. In
him we have a tried man, and one
who has proven himself accommo
dating, prompt and efficient; one
who, as his vote testifies, has given
most general satisfaction. For the
successful conduct of his office and
the flattering endorsement of his
administration, Mr. Granbery is
greatly indebted to his deputy, Mr.
N. B. Cheairs, who will of course be
retained in his present position.
Mr. Ernbry, who was re-elected
Circuit Court Clerk, is another tried
man, against whose administration
no word of reproach could be said.
He knows and understands the busi
ness of his office to the minutest de
tail, and there is never a day or
hour when he 1b not ready and will
ing to give a patient and attentive
hearing to the humblest citizen who
has business in his office.
In the County Court Clerk's office
we will find a new man, but not a
strange or unfamiliar facr. Mr.
Thomas has been a Magistrate for a
number of years, and County Judge.
In these offices he was always pains
taking, courteous and attentive, and
will in like manner perform the du
ties of his new office.
Mr. Latta, the new Register, is a
new figure in politics. He has never
held office before, and until the be
ginning of this campaign .wag not
generally known. Those who know
him best gave him a flattering en
dorsement at the polls. He is a
poor man, with a large family, and
his friends were greatly elated over
his success. He ia industrious,
prompt and reliable, and will always
be found at his post of duty.
Ho as a whole the responsible du
ties of the public offices of the
county seem to be in safe hands,
and we extend our congratulations
to both the people and the officers
To some of those who were de
feated there seems promise of a
brighter day yet to come.
Jl'DUE SAM HOLDING.
The Hkkald congratulates the
people of this Judicial Circuit, in
the election of Judge Ham Holding.
Never a cleaner, fairer, more up
right and honorable man took his
seat upon the Bench.
Never a man had better friends,
or more malicious, unscrupulous,
vindicative enemies. Thrice in the
last few months have the people at
the polls, in this his home county,
vindicated his character, and by
their verdict denounced the cam
paign methods and false utterances
of his traducers. By a verdict thrice
repeated have they elected him to
the Bench, and by his record as a
Judge and his deportment as a man
shall he now be judged ; and as one
who has known him long, intimate
ly and well; as one who has seen
him tempted and tried; as one who
knows the strength of his intellect,
the warmth of his heart, the cour
age of his nature, we stand sponsor
for him that as Judge and man he
will justify every hope and fulfill
every promise made for him by his
Clean handed, pure hearted, fair

LOST. STKAYED OK STOLEN.
What has become of the Demo
cratic party of Maurj? Is it lost;
has it strayed from the house of its
fathers, or has it been kidnapped
by the enemy? Or, what is more
pertinent still, is there any Demo
cratic party in Maury County? If
so, t''e finder will be liberally re
warded for putting it on its feet
again and sending it home in good
We have yet in this county what
is called a County Democratic Ex
ecutive Committee, and this is sup
posed to be the fountain head of the
party. It is not strange, therefore,
that the stream is polluted when we
know that the head source is im
pure. And a Democracy that springs
from a committee badly adulterated
with bolters, is necessarily non
adhesive in its character.
We tell the simple, plain, unvarn
ished truth when we say that sever
al of the so-called alleged Demo
cratic Executive Committee, voted
against the regular Democratic
nominee for Circuit Judge in the re
cent election. Not only voted against
him, but worked against him, talked
against him, and belittled the idea
of Democrats voting for him on
party grounds and because he was
the nominee. ' '
Now, are such Democrats as these,
to shape our party policies f6r' the
fall elections? Hhall they dictate
to Democrats how and when their
nominations are to be made? Shall
they continue to bind the party by
a convention or a primary, and then
knife it as before? Bhall such a
travesty upon party organization
and party loyalty prevail?
If it does, the Democracy may ex
pect defeat in the fall, for the rank
and file of Maury County Democrats
will follow no such tainted leader
ship. The proper thing for these men to
do is to resign ; and failing in that,
the next proper thing to be done is
for the Chairman to call the com
mittee together, that it may purge
itself of all such.
And yet another question to be
considered is, shall the men who
knifed the nominee in the late elec
tion, participate in the primaries
yet to come? When we remember
that Mr. Holding submitted his
claims twice to the Democratic
voters of this county; that twioe he
was fought by this same crowd ; that
twice he routed them, and honorably
at last won the nomination in so fair
a manner that hot one word of criti
cism could be said against it; and
after all this, when we. find men
calling themselves Democrats open
ly, industriously, energetically op
posing him, shall we then take
these men into our party counsels
again and give them full fellowship?
The Hebald says, No!
If we are to have a Democratic
Executive Committee, lets have one
whose Democracy is unquestioned
and who'se calls will be respected. "
If we are to have a Democratic
primary, for the Legislature, or Con
gress, or any other office, lets have
it for Democrats who respect their
implied moral as well as political
obligation, to support the nomiuee',
whoever he may be. ;
Lets stop this betrayal of the
Democratic party. Lets purge our
Executive Committee of all its Mug
wumps, its Populites and its bolters.
And lets purge our primaries of them
as well. Whatever we do in the
name of Democracy, let it be done
bv Democrats. Lets drive the ene
my from our ranks, and force them
to fight us in the open field, foe to
For a polluted committee to call a

CONGRESSIONAL PRIMARY CALLED.
The Democratic Congressional
Executive Committe has met and
called a direct district primary for
the purpose of nominating a candi
date for Congress.
We have no objection to the pri
mary plan; but in making their call
the committee, in our ludpement,
have mad6 the common mistake of
leaving their doors too wide open.
Why they should open the same
doors to the Bryan men and the
Palmer men, can be accounted for
ia no other way than that it is one of
those funny, irreconcilable incon
sistencies you frequently meet with
in politics. I'pon the paramount
question in the last campaign, the
Bryan and Palmer men differed a
widely as the Watson and McKinley
men; and as that same question will
doubtless be the vital question be

crat and a gold Democrat, than

Populists and the protection Re
publicans voting together.
Bo much for that question. And
in addition to that, by their silence
they admit into this primary those
traitorous Democrats who just last
week deserted their colors and
knifed the Democratic nominee for
Circuit Judge. Such an hetero
geneous conglomeration of individ
uals as may get together under this
call, may just as well be called any
thing else as Democrats.
Still, the committee has done it,
and the Hkkald bow? to the au
thority of the committee, and will
support the nominee of their pri
mary. This is mereiy a public ex
pression of our private opinion.
But we find in their action some
thing most heartily to commend.
They have put themselves, and
by their action their party, on record
against the use of money, whiskey
or other corrupting influences in
elections; and in doing so they have
done wisely and well.
Now all those who are opposed to
bribery and corruption in election,
should enter these wide open doors
and vote for men whose private
lives and public records are like
wise opposed to all such. To pro
fess one thing and vote another, is
the rankest sort of political hypoc
risy. This is not a delegated con
vention, where the responsibility
may be shifted to other shoulders.
This is a straight primary, where
every vote counts in the general re
sult, and where every man should
feel the responsibility of voting his
honest sentiments in favor of the
candidate ho thinks mot deserving
and best suited for the place.

The Two Moguls Have Stirred yulte
Secretary Alger and Colonel
"Teddy" Roosevelt, the Rough
Kiner leader, are at "outs." The
difficulty all arose over a letter
which Roosevelt wrote and sent w
the Secretary, informing: him in
strong terms of the condition of the
army at Santiago and suggesting its
removal to some place with better
sanitary conditions. The Secretary
answered, concluding his language
in none too mild terms, and as a re
sult a bitter row has arisen between
the two men and their friends, and
there is no telling where it will end.
A correspondent writing from Wash
"At present the friends of Roose
velt have the whip in hand, and
there will be no effort spared to
shove Secretary Alirer from the
Cabinet. The fact that the lettef
was a personal one to the Secretary,
and was written in a confidential
vein, makes it appear that thf
Secretary acted in bad faith, if
not through spite, in making it
public. There is nothing too hard
which is not being said against
Alger just at present in some quar
ters. Gen. Alger has not been a
popular member of the Cabinet, and

called into McKinley's council there

"Sir : In the meptinar of general and
medical olhcers called by you at the

know., unanimous in the view as to what
should be done with the army. To keep
us here, in the opinion of everv oflicer

simply to involve the destruction of

of ths two brigades, and there has not
been one true case of yellow fever oc
curred in this division exnept anion
the men sent to.the hospital at Sibonev,
where thev have contracted it.
'But in this division there have been
l,.r00 cases of malarial fever. Not a man
has died from it, but the whole com
mand is so weakened and shattered as
to be ripe for dyin? like rotten sheep
when the real 'yellow fever epidemic,
instead of the fake epidemic like the
present, strikes us, as it is bound to do
if we stay h-sre at the height of the sick
' "If we are kept here it will, in all hu
man possibility, mean an appalling dis
aster, for tlie surgeons estimate that
over half the arm v, if kept here during
the sickly season, will die.
"This is not only terrible from a
standpointof individual lives, but means
ruin from the standoointof the milUary
efficiency of the flower of the American
army, for the great bulk of the regular

"The Rick list, larce though it is. t

tion of the army.
"Xot 10 per cent, are fit for active
work. Six weeks on the north Maine
coast, for instance, or elsewhere, where
the yellow fever germ cannot possibly
propagate, would make all as lit aa

take a leading part in a great campaign
against Havana in the fall, even if we
are not allowed to try Porto Rico.
"We can be moved north, if moved at

been infinitely better i' we had been

"If there were any object in keeping
us, we would face yellow fever with aa
much indifference as we faced bullets,
but there is no object in it.

are sufficient to garrison the city and
the surrounding towns, and there is ab
solutely nothing for us to do, and there
