WEDXESDAT, i t JULT 21, 188.
The signs of the times point to the
triumphant election of every man on
the Democratic ticket for county effl
' clala. The convention manifested the
greatest caution in the selection of the
ticket. It was composed of the best
jnen of the connty, and while there
avas much diversity of opinion and
. come asperity manifested in the selec
tion of candidates the convention ad
journed in harmony, and the people
' hare recognized the ticket as one of
r the strongest ever presented. Every
Democrat in 6he'Ay county seems to
be animated by the belief that we ore
going to win on the 5th of Augnt
going to elect every man on the ticket.
This feeling is not bssed on idle con
jecture. It bai its warrant in the tri
umph of the Democratic party in the
last three elections by majorities rang
ing from 1500 to 4000. It has its war
rant in Democratic unity as contrssted
with Republican dissensions dissen
sions so bitter that a reorganization ol
the Republican ticket is highly proba
ble. The whole ticket will receive
the hearty snd uudivided support of
very Democratic voter. Efforts will

men who have defeated the Republi

election is of still inoro import

that Moss is wholly incompetent to dis
charge the duties of Criminal Cjurt

Some amendments have been intrj

any damaging degree restrict its au

object is to reduce tho wide and con

equalise the current, whoso "wash"
will consequently equalize tho depth
by carrying oil' the sand and soil that

of width, with its filed of increasing

the people of the Mississippi Valley to

made. A convention of the valley,
from St, Tsui downwards, should be
held annually, with the object of
holding Representatives and Senators
from the valley to thoir duty, and of
strengthening their hands in the dis

Europe has found our shores good

No Southern member of Congress
can resent a personal affront or slan

hearing the stale reply about planta

seems p'antation manners are prac

He is courteous, obliging, mild and

his private or public record. He la a
man of unexceptionable habits, of the
very highest moral character, and if
competency weigh anything with
the taxpaying people, Andrew
J. Harris should lead the Democratic
ticket, as he has mado a model public
servant. The talk about rotation in
office is the paltry device of the
enemy. So a man la honest, capable
and faithful, the people care nothing
about the time he has been
in office. In many counties in
Tennessee there are officials who
have held their positions for
repeated consecutive terms, wi'h
growing credit to themselves and satis
faction to the people In every State
in the Union men have been elected
consecutively to office lor twenty
yeais, thirty years nud occasionally os
long as forty yeais. Webs'er, Cay

The ontents of the resolution sub

the workingmen should not hope for
success unless they were prepaiel to

Her Divorce Case Her Shameless
Behavior ia tiieCoartroom-Tbe
Story of Her Degradation.
Los uoN, July 20. Evidence given
today in tbe trial of tbe Crawford di
vorce case, showed clearly tbat Mrs.
Crawford bad been guilty of adultery
with Capt. Fester. Mrs. Crawford t-iok
the stand and declared that her con
fession to ber husband was true. She
swore that ahe often visited Sir
Charles Dilke's house, and that Sir
Charles bad opened the door and con
ducted her to a bedroom. 'Mrs. Craw
ford explained bcr conduct by eaying
tbat ehe never loved ber husband,
who, she declared, was all the time
suspecting ber. She had not, ehe con
tinued, spoken to her mother in three
years. She married Mr. Crawford be
causs at home she was miserable. She
retold the etoiy of her degradation by
"Fanny" in pre'ty much the eamo
terms es those used by her in her con
fession. She confessed that ehe dis
liked her husband because be
was t:0' old; ehe loved Fos
ter because be was hand
some ahd pleafcine, that ehe hated
Dilke and that she committed edulte y
with Dilke for the purpose of obta.ning
a divo ce fro n her hated hu-baod.
She spared FVister as far as possible,
beca'ise she knew be wss about to
marry. Under a strict cross examina
tion she coif, ssed that she had com
mi tad adult-try only with D.Ike and
Foster, exculpating two other soiuty
men. A remarkable feature was that
when Mrs. Crawford was esfeed some
qnoatioES, for instance, with regard to
French vice, adultery, etc., the an
swered wi h the utmost calmne.-s,
"Yes, yes!" and even smiled, showing
that ehe was ah u'terly abandoned
woman, who rather gloried in her
shame. Mrs. Crawford spoke in soft,
pleasing tone?, d imsging Di ke with
out excnlpat log herself.
