JAMES P II ELAN, or Shtlbr.
k. a. odlum.
Evaiy true and reliable Democrat
in flbelby county will lejoiuo to see
that the parly has awakened to new
life. Inaction has Riven piece (o v'gl
lanes in every civil dittric', end it is
hoped this aroused activ ty will grow
until it becomes iireeiulibleon tLodny
of the election. The Democracy ol
Khelby seem to have reserved their
labjra fur tie la t week of the tlec
tior, and on Monday and yes'eniay
there w-s an advance all alone the
line. The work uf the pact two days
indica'oi that on Tuesday next tlio
Kiorions vic'ory of August will be re
peated, ard show to the world that
this county and this ConRiOBdonai
DiUrict heve been forover redteine'l,
regcneroUd and disenthralled from
BepublicRn ni If rule. On victory
ehculd be the battle cry until the
polls clo?a on Tuesday next. Demo
crat of Shelby, ol tVo Tenth Con
grotoloi al Dietrlct, you never had
greater incentive to duty thnu in this
eanvKBP. The bantu are of vital ini
poitanre. Du Tocqueviile in his book
on Amer'ca ssjs: "The natiou will be
divided between two opinions the one
tendiig to limit, the other to extend in
definitely the piwor of the people."
This la the distinctive dividing lino be.
two en Tt( publicum and Democrats,
The Republicans by tholr hatred rf
foreigners, their prohibitory leaning,
their tendency to centralization and
monopolies, feek to abridge I ho lights
and liberties of the people. The Dcm
crate, on the ether hand, by their
humanity, their love of civil, religions
and personal liberty, their desire for
local nt If government, tho'r advoi aey
of equal rights for all, exclusive privi
leges to none, show that their aim is to
perpetuate a government ruled by the
people for the benefit of the popular
masse instead of the favored few.
The Dcniccretic party ia the people's
party, and in all tilings, nalinnul,
State and ronpty polities, oympathines
with the monies. This Congressional
District is essentially Democratic, and
there is no exi use for disafluction, as
onr own candidates are as pure in in
tegrity as the principles they rep
resent. Bob Taylor, the Dem
ocratic nominee for Governor, has
made a brilliant canvass. lie has
had ro fact'ons to concilia'e, nore to
canqtior. Under his leadership the
party presents an unbroken fioi.t.
He has diflcusiul the issues ably, and
to the surprise of these who did net
know him, in a Bln'esmmiliko man
ner. There is no doubt es to his elec
tion. The qneitiou is simply as to Ids
majority, and the best informed Dem
ocrats place it at 40,(00. In
this Congressional Dinlriot James
rhehm has mtule a bright
record, earned the honors he

to edict a bolter or mcTii

victory will be achieved on Tuesday if

cireumBlances that induce them to

thoy thus practically icaliza the.t tboee
who have learned most are most suc
cessful, thus comprehending the
necessity and value of education.
That such fairs have a most valuable
result is evident, ard those who go to
Vickeburg to a' tend the colored fair
will not only be gratified by seeing to
wh8tonr celcred citizens bave already
attained, but by obtaining an insight
into their capacity and characttr from
an entirely new point of view. The
New Orlerna Timet, in dilating
upon throe colored annual fair, rays:
"These expositions have been of de
cided advancement to the negro in
jutt that direction wherein ho needs
aid and education. The.e Ib no better
opportunity for the negroes to obtain
information and knowledge than ex
pisiiiinsof this kind, wh'ch arouse
rare pride and etcourcgo neweuorts.
Eieh aaccecBive exposition bai shoivn
as improvement in the chaact'jr of
the exhibits and increased interest
among the colored psoplo. We expect
to see colored fjirj held next year in
every Southern titate."
Ths nngrsei in tho mats) show
their ingra'.ltude by taking a mali
cijus delight in hnrling themselves
in every election egVuial tho whites,
who pay nearly all the taxes levied
and collected fr tho education
of negro children. In Georgia the
total property of the (Hate is returned
for taxes at over $300,000,000, of which
the colored people return in round
umbers about $8,000,009. In tho
difliributjnn of the tax for tchojl piu
poses, there in practically no differ
ence made between the white and
coleri'd children. Inc'uJiau the StaU
and lociil school systems and poll
taxes- nearly $700,000 is appropriated
for educational purposes, of which
nearly one-half goes t3 the education
of tke colored raco. It is just so in
all the Southern States. Here iu
8heiby county the colored children
have an equal chance for
eiJu.at'ea with white children.
They have primary, intermediate,
grammar and high echco's, the came
that the whites havo. The books of
the Tax Afseeeorand the Tax Collector
show tli at mowt of the taxes levied are
paid by the white). The negroes fi.il
the public schools with their children
to educate them at the expense of the
whites, but when the day of election
arrirea they firet ascortain how the
whites who pay the taxes that cducata
their children vole, eo that they can
cast n solid colored vote egainst them.
When a lying Northern Republican
emissary comes South the negroes
take him into their public schools and
"point with pride" tp their educational
facilities, and in the same breath fur
nish slanders against the whites whom
money odiicat-.s their children and
builds the sehoolhouso', the facilities
t which they "print with pride."
While the Repnb'ican party was
in pewer in the Southern State3
it tid nettling for the educa
tion of Ih'J whites or blocks,
but iu Tonne sice it stole) the
Bchool fund. Tho DeiiKeitttie whiles
of the South emerged from the dovai
Uti m of war and reconstruction with
a legacy of nearly $300,000,0110 piled
npou them by Kepublleou thieves.
Ho Boon as the Deturcratio whites were
given home rule they commencod
tixing theniBelvtM to educate the
childreu, whit', s and blacks alike.
What a cont act between onr school
syntum now and what it was under
Republican rule while the whites
were dinfranuhisod. The history of
the world does not furnish a grander
spec'a.'lo than that of the white peo
ple of the H.iuth tax'ng tbeuuelves
to eUicato colored children, when
the fathers of these children at every
elei'tion take a nialiiiom ploueuro in
voting asaiut the white taxpayer.
This ingratitude is attributable to ig
nirauco. But the negro is learning,
and ho begins tj see thit it is to his
interest to vote with the whites who
eJ urate his children. In the approach
