: Dec. 27, 1894. E. D. AKE, Editor. Volume XXVIII. Number 26. G rover, it i9 9aid, is not well; neith er is the Democratic party in its finest vigor. We can't refrain from quoting from the Register of April 5th, 1894: "The year 1894 will be remembered as the year of Cuckoo St. Bartholomew." We ask pardon: the French St. Barth olomew couldn't hold a candle to No vember 6th, 1894. We would inform the philosopher of the Southeast Gazette tbat the Demo crats of this State have the same reas on to object to D. R. Francis being placed, in charge of their organization that the Japanese would have to a Chinaman leading their armies. Another raid is being made upon the gold of the Treasury with a view to stampeding Congressmen to the Carlisle banking scheme, and inciden tally helping the finance of the parties engaged in the raid. Wall Street is always willing to help its friends Cleve land and Carlisle when anything is to be gained bo it. The Japanese ought not to become inflated with self-conceit too soon. Their victories might have been achieved by any semi-barbarous race at all familiar with the modern apph ances of warfare. The real test of Japanese fi?htinsr ability will come when they are pitted against some one of the nations of Western Europe. The Civil Service of the Chinese is all that our own Roosevelt could wish It is the most complete Barnacle sys tem that the mind of man is capable of devising; but the Chinese govern ment is falling to pieces like a rotton cheese. It is so completely honey combed with corruption that it has no power of cohesion, and, like a card house, tumbles down at a touch. The banking scheme of Mr. John G. Carlisle does not seem to spread it self abroad and nourish as the green bay tree. By the way, this is the same Carlisle that confidenced so many con gressmen into voting for the uncondi tional repeal of the Sherman law, by assuring them that something would be done for silver on Democratic lines It is very difficult for the same confi dence man to work the same parties more than once. Gold is leaving the treasury at the rate of five hundred thousand dollars a day, and it seems, under the policy of the administration, another bond issue is inevitable in the near future This bond business is the most dis graceful piece of robbery of the cen tury. If the administration would consent to treat the silver already coined as money of final payment, and pay either gold or silver at its option, these conspirators would be brought up with a round turn. It looks as if the administration was in league with them, and determined to keep the doors of the treasury wide open, in order that it may be looted at will. By the way, is there anything in the rumor that Mr. Cleveland has made between four and six million of dollars since his inauguration? Lost, strayed or stolen probably stolen a Star-Fyed Goddess, the pro perty of one Henry Watterson, Editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal. It seems that Mr. Watterson accompanied his friend John Griffin Carlisle on a short visit to Wall Street to explain to the magnates of that thoroughfare that he had always been an admirer of the single gold standard, and that anything to the contrary that might have appeared in his paper was to be considered in the light of a campaign emergency: merely as glittering gen eralities to catch votes, and not in tended to be acted upon. As he be came earnest in his representations he lost sight of his Goddess, when she mysteriously disappeared, and has not since been heard of. Any one who will give information that will lead to the recovery of Mr. Watterson 's deity will be suitably rewarded. We trust Mr. Watterson will recover his prop erty, and never, never, take her to Wall Street again no, not if Mr. Car lisle urge him to do so never so ear nestly. The minute subdivision of labor that has followed upon the footsteps of science has so changed the conditions of modern lifa that could our great grandfathers arise from their graves they would be in a world so entirely new and strange to them that they would imagine they had been trans ported to another planet. The whole face of society and the conditions of living have been transformed within the last century. In the olden time, each community had its shoemaker who manufactured the shoes for his neighborhood. If a competent man, he was kept busy from morning until night, even in the worst of times. Now, the work that would have cost him a year of toil toil that would have brought him means to support bis family he sees accomplished as if by magic in an hour's time. It is the same with the wagon-maker, the black-1 smith, and nearly every other trade, i The machine has supplanted the man. and the man gives his time and energy to directing a machine that performs single function; so that, as the use of machinery increases, the intellect of the operator is narrowed to the lever he works. A man of this kind is apt to care more for personal comfort than the public good. He is not apt to re sent infringement upon personal liberty or to take a vital interest in questions effecting the general welfare. It is but natural that he should rely upon some one else to think for him, and this the manager is usually willing to do. How to overcome evils of this character is yet an unsolved problem. The common people, in their fight against the money power, with the single exception of the Atlanta Consti tution, are without an organ. Their astute opponents have succeeded in rendering them practically dumb by closing the channels through which their views could reach the public, thereby preventing any concert of ac tion on their part. The method by which they accomplish this is compar atively easy. The scale upon which it has become necessary to conduct a great daily is of such magnitude, and requires so much capital, that the means of a sinsrle individual are sel dom adequate to meet the require ments of so vast an enterprise, even if he were disposed to hazard them in a single venture. As a consequence, a company is formed and stock is issued If the paper becomes troublesome to the Shylocks, a controlling interest in its stock is secured, and its policy changed to suit its new owners. This is precisely what happened to the Republic a year or so ago. It under took to voice the sentiment of the rank and file of the Democratic party; for a time it wielded a powerful influence, because it was in touch with the Dem ocratic masses of the Mississippi Val ley and voiced their aspirations. This the money power could not afford to permit. A controlling interest in its stock was purchased, Mr. Jones was required to step down and out, the policy of the paper was changed to suit its new owners, and since that time it has been an adjunct of the Re publican party on financial questions. This method of suppressing the voice of the people is not so simple as that in vogue in the Austrian or German Empire, but it is quite as effective. Over there, an obnoxious paper is sup pressed by the police, its type scatter ed, and its press broken the whole af fair really costing nothing to the par ties interested in putting the journal with which they are displeased out of existence. In the next twenty-five years they hope to simplify matters of this nature on this side of the Atlantic. While the great daily has gradually grown in power, the local paper has gradually diminished. The country editor has to set type, attend to his mails, sweep his office, run his press write locals, and is usually content to follow in the footsteps of his contem porary of the metropolis, without giv ing much thought about the road he is traveling; and in any event the work he might do through his editorial page would be at least partially neutralized by his patent inside. The time is not far distant when the Rural Rooster will be forced .to the front by the peo ple who take his paper. There is something for him to do besides pub lishing legal advertisements. Once in the history of the Democratic party in this State the Rural Rooster forced its metropolotan organ to take the back track, and the same thing is likely to happen again. The Discovery Saved His Life. Mr. G. Caillouette, Druggist, Beav ersville, 111., says: "To Dr. King's New Discovery I owe my life. Was taken with La Grippe and tried all the physicians for miles about, but of no avail and was given up and told I could not live. Having Dr. King's New Dis covery in my store I sent for a bottle and began its use and from the first dose began to get better, and after us ing three bottles was up and about again. It is worth its weight in gold. We won't keep store or house without it." Get a free trial at Crisp's Drug Store. 2 Tax Notice Extraordinary. The undersigned.
