When in the dark and troublesome
days of 18(51—the time that tried
the souls of men—the drum-tap
sounded the alarm and told that the
homes and firesides of Arkansas
were in danger of invasion, from ev
ery hill side and valley eatne the re
sponse from true and loj-al sons.
The school boy tossed aside his
books and left the college halls, and
donned the soldiers uniform. The
farmer left his plow in the furrow
und took his rille on his shoulder.
The tradesman left his wares and
placed himself in line with those
who were ready to strike for their
homes and firesides. All with one
accord placed their services and
their lives at the command of their
That was patriotism. That was a
tight for dear old Arkansas.
Now, although no bugle call is
heard, there is another fight on. The
loyal’sons of new Arkansas are call
ed upon .to come to the rescue in de
fense of her honor. The States of
the American Union are now to be
placed in grand review in competi
tion with all other civilized provinc
es and kingdoms of earth. The
progress they have made in civiliza
tion is to be passed upon. The ex
cellence they have attained in the
arts and sciences, their skill in me
chanics and architecture, their pro
ticency in agriculture and horticul
ture is to be exhibited in compari
son with the like belongings of all
other people on the civilized globe.
And in this grand oommpetitive ar
ray New Arkansas is to take a part.
This time instead of being called to
a test of prowess in war. Arkansas
calls upon her sons anti daughters
to come to a test of all those things
which make a people great in peace.
It is no less patriotism to defend
A rknnHH* airainst t he false charires
that have been made against her,
and correct the wrong impression
that has been made by those false
charges, than it was to draw the
sword in defense of her homes in the
days of her invasion.
It has been said that Arkunsas is
populated by a shiftless, ignorant,
and only semi civilized people. We
want to convince the world that this
assertion is a lie by sending up to
the Columbian Exposition such
tangible evidences of our thrift, of
our progressiveness, of our intelli
genee. of the advance we have made
in educational matters and in the
arts and sciences, as van only ema
nate from an intelligent, energetic,
dauntless people. We want to tabu
late statistics of the wonderful
achievements we have worked out
aince the short while ago w hen we
were left with nothing but desola
tion staring us in the face as the re
sult of fouryears of war aid pillage.
We want to gather up ami place
on exhibition such u collection of
field and farm products, such u dis
play of our timpel- and coal, such
cabinets of our mineral wealth as
will force conviction to all beholders
that Arkansas has not only civiliza
tion, but she has also resources of ,
almost boundless value. i

that steps are being taken to see ;

For the honor of Arkansas—New
Arkansas—and in vindication of

we trust every citizen will respond
to this call. Men whoa short while

her a vindication against the hard

Those who stole the presidency
in 1876 are in a state of virtuous in
dignation over the election in Ala
bama. The democratic candidate for
governor was elected by a majority of
11,000 over the Peoples' and repub
lican candidate, a man named Kolb.
He charges fraud, the peoples' party
charges fraud, the republican party
charges fraud, und all three togeth
er work the refrain for all it is
worth. It was just so in this State
when Norwood was defeated. In
Alabama it is interesting to note the
beginning and progress of the triple
cry of fraud. It began with Kolb
himself on the night of the election
Before the votes were counted he set
up the cry. Living at one point he
charged fraud at other points hun
dreds of miles away. Of course he
had no evidence. No evidence is
needed by unscrupulous dema
gogues whom the people will not
support. They are not wanted in
office and the only satisfaction left
them is the crv of fraud. When
Kolb opened his mouth his party
and republican aids chimed in. Re
publican editors a thousand miles
from the scene of the election were
crying fraud the next morning.
Where did they get the evidence of
fraud? From Kolb himself and
Kolb got his from his mouth. The
purpose of the republican fraud cry
in the north is plain. It is offered
in support of the force bill, and it is
very appropriate, for a bill of that
character naturally rests upon mis
representation. Upon the basis of
lying and slandering the people of
the South the republican party pur
poses to rest a force bill.
Republican orators never tire of
taking credit in the name of their
party for the inauguration of the
public school system in this State.
Like a great many other things said
by them the claim is untrue and the
falsity of it is thus proven by the
Clarksville Herald-Journal:
In the first digest of the
laws of Arkansas, on page 692,
we find that the following was pass
ed by the legislature on March 5th,
Sec. 135. The net proceeds of the
sales of all lauds and town lots forfeited
to the State under the provisions of this
act, after deducting the taxes and |>eiial
ties due the State and county, and ex
penses of sale, shall be set apart ns a
final for the support of common schools,
and the Auditor shall credit the same to
the school fund."
This was the first provision made
in Arkansas for the maintenance of
public schools. This act was pass
ed by a democratic legislature du
ring the administration of James S.
Conway, who was a democrat and
the first governor the state ever had.
Changes in our manner of raising
school fund’s have been made since

its record a million miles deep in the
pit that is mentioned in Holy Writ;

would only be common justice.
Will any Pope county democrat
vote for a man who held such views.

The people of Arkansas do not de
sire that the election of their con,
pressmen and presidential electors
i,e controlled by federal ius|mctors
tnd uytrshals, and people of other
states regard such a proposition in
;he same light. When the adminis
- ration at Washington can force the
slection of its choice in the various
listricts of the country, there wjll

lisfranchisement of the people. The

uch a calamity by voting none but

Wemper’s letter to Dillard of
Howard county i« published in an
other column. Every democrat in
the Peoples’ party ought to read it
and see where his connection with
that organization is tending. If he
wants to assist in rehabilitating the
Clayton republican regime in this
state he will vote for C arnahan and
aid materially indirectly the repub
lican candidate. If he favors local
self government, white supremacy
and honest administration of affairs
he will vote for Fisbback. To this
complexion it has come at last.
If the road convention at Ft.
Smith does nothing more than to
awaken public interest in the sub
ject of better highways it will ac
complish much good. The first thing
essential is to arouse the people
to the necessity of doing something.
The second is to decide what, to do. |
There is not the wide-spread con- i
cern on this subject among the mas
ses that there should be. Interest
is growing but the press and public
educators of all kinds have much
work yet to do along this line.
After Gen. Field’s Fort Smith
speech his partizans took up a col
lection from the audience to defray
expenses. Yet the state central
committee refused to allow him to
engage in joint debate with Berry
and Rogers, fearing “sacrifice of dig
nity.” We rather suspect they fear
ed annihilation of their nominee at
the hands of the democratic chain
Judge Peter Turney, whom the
democrats of Tennessee have nomi
nated for governor, is familliarly
known as "Old Pete," and is one of
the most popular men in the South.
He is possessed of imposing physi
cal proportions and fought gallantly
for the lost cause. He is a learned
jurist, comparatively poor, and lives
on a little farm near Winchester.
Every citizen of Arkansas will be
pained to learn that Governor Ea
gle is lying at the point of death in
Kentucky. All hope of his recovery
has been abandoned, writes his de
voted wife. The physicians state
that his condition was brought
about by too close application to
the duties of his office and overwork.
During the session of the congress
just closed 9,835 bills and joint reso
lutions were introduced in the House
and 3,604 in the Senate. The House
passed 475 bills, of which 287 were
afterward passed by the Senate.
The Senate passed 691 bills, of
which only 114 were approved by
the House.

Advanced by United States Senator John
B. Gordon, of Georgia.
Senator John B. Gordon, of Geor
gia, recently delivered the following j
able address to a large audience at
Atlanta. Ga.:
Fellow Countrymen: — Edmund
Burke was one of the greatest—pos
sibly was the very wisest of English
statesmen. He was a believer in
practical as well as sentimental pol
itics. One of his doctrines was that
it is the duty of the patriot to do
the best thing he can under the ex
isting circumstances. I am moved
to inquire if there is a patriot in
this audience who does not know
that the best thing he can do for Ins
country under the circumstances
around* us, is to aid in defeating the
republican party. Is there an intel
ligent, thoughtful and patriotic, man
in Georgia who does not know this
to be true; and who does not more
over know that the only possible
way to defeat that party is by the
triumph of the organized Democracy
of this union? [Applause.] If this
be true—and it is true—how mar
velous is the spectacle we witness in
this and sister southern states of an
organized effort to disrupt and de
stroy the Democratic party, and
thus perpetuate the rule of the Re
publican party in this country? This
spectacle becomes mournful as well
as marvelous when we see Democrat s
reared in the school of Jefferson and
| of Jackson, of Polk, of Tildeu and
Cleveland. This spectacle becomes
still more mournful when the south
ern Democrats turn their backs up
on the glorious tlag of Democracy
which they have so often followed in
the past to liberty saving victories.
[Applause. ]
My countrymen, this ought not so
to be. Of all the men and women
in this Union, the southern men and
women are the most deeply concern
ed in the preservation of the nation
al Democratic party, under whose
protecting edges alone is to be found
security for our homes, prosperity
and freedom. It is that party which
delivered after the war from the tor
tures of the political rack, which
has saved our liberties since the
war, which triumphed over our ene
mies in 1884 and again in 1890, and
which will, by the help of the God
of Battles and the liberty loving
American people, give us a still
more glorious triumph in 1892. [Ap
plause,] In the brief time it is prop
er for me to occupy tonight I pro
pose to analyze some of the reasons
assigned by our third party friends
for this desertion of the Democratic
party in this critical period of our
The first and by far the most im
portant reason, if I understand it.
given by our third party friends for
their movement, is the cluini that
they are unable to secure financial
relief through the Democratic party.
Well, how do they propose to secure
it through the People’s party? Let
me read their demand from their
"We demand a national currency,
safe, sound and flexible, issued by
the general government only, a full
legal tender for all debts, public and
private, and that without banking
corporations; a just, equitable and
efficient means of distribution direct
to the people, at a tax not to exceed
2 per cent per annum, etc.” [Ap
plausc.] .
Now my friends, we are all inter
ested in this vital currency question
and it is too serious a business to
admit of quibbling, of sophistries or
mistukcs. We cannot afford to de
ceive ourselves in so vital a matter.
What does this demand mean? If 1
am capuhle of understanding the
English language, it means that
there shall be no banks in this coun
try, except the one gigantic, collos
sal concern called the United States
Have you thought seriously of the
scope and immensity of that de
maud? Who is to be the lender >if

Who are to be the managers of

ty which for the time happens to

How many of these employes will! j

restoring peristaltic action of (ho alimentary caoah |
iness. Calculate if you can the I
number in this proposed army of
government money counters. Every
one of these regularly organized
banks, trying to curtail expenses,
has, as a rule, a president, a vice
president. a cashier, teller, book
keepers. clerks, collectors, directors,
etc. All this vast and complicated
machinery, now run by 100,000 of
the most capaple men on the conti
nent, is to be transmitted by a vote
of Congress into one leviathan gov
ernment banking establishment.
The army that followed Lee in the
Wilderness or Grant at Chickarnau
ga would be nothing as compared tfr
it. And when our third party friends
secure that other demand, the con
trol by the government of all rail
roads and steamboat and canal boats
and telegraph lines, you muster a
horde eclipsing in number the le
gions which followed the eagles of
Imperial Rome when she became
mistress of the world.
Hut again, what security are these
10,000,0(10 of borrowers to give to
the government for these loans? Do
von answer, “Laud, which is the
best of security?” Well, land is un
doubtedly good security, and one of
the just complaints against the na
tional banking system is that land
is not taken as security. But, my
friends, when you come to seriously
consider the proposition that this
government shall lend money to 10,
000,000 of people on all the land of
this vast domain, it becomes a prob
lem, the complications and magni
tude of which mujjp stagger the
brain of the boldest and wildest fi
naneier that ever lived. Look at it
a moment.
Who is to appraise the values of
all these lands? How many apprais
ers would it require to appraise ev
ery tract of land in every State from
the Canada line to the Rio Grand,
and from the Atlantic to the Pacific?
Who is to vouch for accuracy of
these appraisers’ estimates? Who
is to guarantee their fidelity and
honesty and insure the government
against their being bought or bribed
by the great landlords of the coun
Again, who is to examine and re
port upon all the titles to lands
claimed by these 10,000,000 of bor
rowers? Who is to trace each title
back to the original grant, to ex
amine the records of every county
in the Union, for mortgages and pri
or liens, and for old judgements and
executions against some former own
er. or go into the family records to
ascertain if there he minor children?
Oli, ye, lawyers, what a stupendous
harvest ye gather?
Again, what is the poor man to
do who has no land? What are the
laborers, the renters, the black
smiths, the mechanics, the smnll
merchants, the poor men of every
calling, to do? Do they not need
cheap money also? Are they entit
led to as many benefits from this
common Government as the rich?
Are you going to inaugurate a
policy by which the rich can obtain
money at '1 per cent, while the poor
cannot obtain it at all? Talk about
plutocrats. How long would it he
under such a system before the
owners of vast land estates would
become kings among plutocrats?
Talk of the power of a Sampson.
These mighty lords of landed es
tates would speedily, under such a
system, become mightier than an
army of Sampsons to shake down
the pillars of equality that protect
the poor. Talk about the yoke of
the Ciesars. The yoke would indeed
then be fitted to necks of the poor by
Ciesars, beneath whose imperious
tread this temple of equul rights
and of freedom would tremble from
cellar to dome.

they ought to he written upon every
brain and heart in this union:
“With all these blessings, what
more is necessary to make us a hap
py and prosperous people? Still,
one thing more, fellow citizens; a
wise and frugal government, which
shall restrain men from injuring
one another, shall leave them other
wise free to regulate their own pur
suits of industry and improvement,
and shall not take from the mouth
of labor the bread it has earned.
This is the sum of good government,
No paternalism there. No invit
ing of citizens to look to the Gov
ernment for enrichment; no proposi
tion to tax one class for the benefit
of Another class. Nothing save the
power needed to prevent the stronsr
from oppressing the weak and the
rich from robbing the poor.
For one at least J intend to live
and die in these ancestral faiths.
For one I intend to advocate with
whatever power 1 may possess the
doctrines of simplicity and frugal
ity in government. Whether victo
rious or defeated, I propose to still
worship at the old-time sacred al
tars erected by the fathers and fol
low the path which the fathers have
trod, every foot of which is made
luminous by Jefferson's immortal
A Point tor You.
In view of what Hood's Sarsapar
illa has done for others, is it not
reasonable to suppose that it will be

tion, Sick Headache, Loss of Appe
tite. That Tired Feeling, Catarrh,
Malaria. Rheumatism, Hood's Sar
saparilla is an unequalled remedy.
