In my opinion fully one half of the U Democrats of this county believe thai K. the party in convention assembled cat | make no mistake, and therefore the ? platform adopted at Chicago must tx I right. i That which should cause the greatM. . est surprise is the fact that fully one B fourth of the Democrats of*his and ?

J. W. Hinklev, Chairman Democratic State Committee, Chairman Duchess County Committee. The Democrats of Rockland county favor the nomination of Bryan and Bewail. There is no sentiment in favor of a third ticket, nor in favor of bolting the regular nominations. ; If the election were held tomorrow the percentage of loss or gain to the Democratic ^vote on account of the financial issue could not be estimated, l"Oa oAmD irntec ishl'lfl fhp Cfll'ns ? noiuuuaumu " ?? ?- o seem to be about the same, f Frank P.

However, no sentiv: ment has developed in favor of a third candidate. It is altogether probable f that the Democrats who bolt the tick ei will vote for McKinley. $? There is a strong sentiment among ? the farmers, bom Republicans and ? Democrats, in favor of free silver. If the election were held today the loss to the ticket of sound money men would more than made up by the Republican friends of silver. George F. Clocum, Chairman Monroe County Committee. To your first question, yes. The Democrats of New York stand on the sound money platform adopted at Saratoga. I do not know what would be the 5 .percentage of loss on the the sound H'- money issue if the election were held ||?:. tomorrow. James D. Bell, | Chairman Kings County Committee. I Prior to the Chicago convention there was a strong sentiment in favor j| of a gold standard and a little of it remains, but at present most of the Demfc ocrats in Steuben county will support r the nominations. I There is no agitation foi anothei I ticket. It is impossible to determine F what the percentage of loss will be to the Democratic vote. It will be more I than compensated by the gain from I Republicans. James R. Kingslej. g Chairman Steuben County Committee. Fulton and Hamilton county Dem; ocrats are always loyal and support the ticket These counties refused in 1892 to participate in the anti-snap convention. We are against any third ticket now and will ratify the nominees of the regular Democratic national convention when our assembly district con ventien convenes. There are a few bolters here, led bj fmen who have not supported a Demo cratic ticket in four years. Those whc desert the Democratic party now hav< never at heart been with it. . John B. Judson, Chairman Fulton and Hamilton Coun ties Committee, Sullivan county Democrats gener ally disapprove both the Chicago plat form ana the nominees, but await ac tion of the State organization and wil abide by its decision. If election wer< held today we would lose at least 1( percent of vote, not on the money is sue wholly but througn general dis gust with anarchy and asses. Thornton A.

The sentiment or me cuumy is i strongly opposed to the nomination of I anv third ticket. If the election were held tomorrow, in my judgment, there I 1 wonld be but a few Democrats ia the < county who would not support Bryan i and Bewail. At a meeting of the Chenango coun3 ty Democratic committee, held yester- 1 day, a resolution was unanimously f adopted endorsing the candidacy of < Bryan and Sewall and pledging to ( ' them the hearty support of the organ- t r ization. The county is honeycombed c with free silver voters and in my opin- ( } ion, there will be a much larger num- s ber of Republicans who will support \ ! our ticket than Democrats who will c ^ decline to vote for us. 1 William 11.

JNine-tenths ' of Schoharie county Democrats will c support Bryan and Sewall. c , J. II. Brown, t Chairman Schoharie County Commit c tee. ( The Democrats here are almost to a man in favor of the Chicago nominee. While they do not favor all of the S, platform they think it preferable to k McKinleyism. We will gain three Republicans for Bryan where we lose j one Democrat. H. Eugene English, Chairman Orleans County Committee. Democrats in Otsego county are a divided in opinions on the silver ques tinn. The nominees are not personal ly objectionable. Very few favor a third ticket, but prefer that the State convention put an electoral ticket in the Held on the Saratoga platform. If the election was held now the Republi- v can majority in Otsego countv would t probably be somewhat reduced. d L. M. Shaw, u s While many Democrats do not ap- 1 prove of the platform in ns entirety, a the greal majority heartily indorse tne n nominees. The desire for a sound t money ticket is very slight. t The defection from Democratic c ranks on the sound money issue will be more than made up by the gain t among Republican farmers, tradesmen s and working people. F II.V.Burke, t Chairman Montgomery County Committee. There is considerable Democratic dissatisfaction in Tompkins county, but the demand for a third ticket and t the percentage of those who will bolt i is comparatively small and will grow smaller. i The ticket is very strong among farmers and laboring men, and in my t opinion the number of Republicans t from this source who will vote for i Bryan will outnumber the dissatisfied Democrats, so that if an election was s i held today there would be an increase instead of a falling off in the Demo- i cratic vote. < D.

There is very little senti e ment in favor of a sound money Demo i. eratie candidate. The gold men talk McKinley. If the election was held today, Democrats would not lose, in my judgment, to exceed 30 percent, of their rotes on the money issue. John F. Burke. Dhairman Saratoga County Committee.

UOGE EARLE ANSWERS CERTAIN QUESTIONS PROPOUNDED HIM. Silltor Kollock, of the Darliagtou News, nd Colonel Dargau, Ex-Editor of the Sumter FreemaD, Completely Demolish ed totbe Amusement of the Crowd. Oats Cross Roads, S. C., July 23. -The largest meeting of the campaign ras held for Darlington County at his place today. The speaking of the lifferent candidates was about as uslal, until Judge Earle's turn came. It eems that Editor Kollock, of the Dar ington News, a Conservative paper, ,nd Col Dargan one of the worst Tillaan haters in the State, had conspired o trap Judge Earle by asking him cerain questions. As to how they sueeed will be seen from the following: At this point, Mr. Kollock, editor of he Darlington News, handed ud a eries of questions, which had been iropounded to J udge Earle in his paper he Darlington News. Judge Earle: "What are these?" Mr. Kollock: "Some questions we yould like you to answer." Judge Earle: "Whoinspired them?" Mr. Kollock: I am resposnsible for the-? nnnAarpd as an editorial in ny paper." Judge Earle: "Who gave you the n formation?" Mr. Kollock: "The gentleman is ov>r here," pointing in the direction of a rnggy on which Ool. J. J. Dargan vas standing. Judge Earle (with indescribable corn) "Ohl I thought so." Judge Earle stated, however, that he vould answer any question, and proseeded to read and answer them seriitim, as follows: "Why did you,'Joseph II. Earle, withdraw from the Democratic legislaive ticket in Sumter, in 1876, at the larkest hour of the Hampton camjaign?" That re<jdls a matter of which I am )roud. In those dark days when nsn stood together, I helped to free 3umter from Radical rule. A convention was held in Sumter, ind Mr. Epperson came out as an indeindent candidate. I addressed a leter to the people and asked them to ake my name ^4he ticket and put Ifr. Epperson's OTrfcr the sake of harnony. After that ?I worked for Sampton as hard as any man in the State," * "Did you believe then as now in uhof -wmi noil tVio nilft nf the mainntv?' "Yes, I have always believed in the ule of the majority." "Did you not, in the gallery of the ELouse of Representatives, when the 3umter Earle delegation was turned )ut of the convention, advocate, in a ipeech to those around you, a bolt and i ticket in opposition to Tillman?" "I say when the Sumter delegation vas turned out of the convention I saw t was wrong. I said, however, it will ^ome back on you. I wa<3 provoked md said many things. The Tillman novement had a large majority, and 3umter should have had her delegaion seated. When asked to run as in independent the next day I refused. [ did not support the Haskell movement." Mr. Dargan, still standing on the buggy, kept trying to ask Judge Earle :;ertain questions, but the latter ex "I have no questions to answer, ex sept these. I know you." Mr. Dargan: I know you, too, J udge. i^arle: "Any man who attempts to 3tir up the negroes of the State against the white people, I'll have nothing to do with." (Cheers, loud and long.) Mr. Dargan was standing on a buggy and tried to say something, but J udge Earle paid no attention to him and went on with his speech, referring to his endorsement of Tillman after his nomination as Governor. "Why did you consent to run against Richardson in 188S as Tillman's man, after you had denounced Tillman in Sumter for false charges againsst the administration of which you were a part?*' "1 am glad the question has been asked. That period is a part of my history, of which I am proud. Richardson had canvassed the State. Two i? i-.t? ?t._ 1:? u? i weens ueiure me uuu veiiwun nc ?iu to me he had a letter, and from the reading of the contents, he said to me: "You are the man I have to fear." "I told him to dismiss the idea. I would not run. I was Attorney General and had no reason to expect to run for Governor. X wanted an endorsement as Attorney General, but declined to go to Columbia to work for it. That night I received a telegram from Mr. Wannamaker, of Orangeburg, leader of the farmers movement, asking me to become a candidate for Governor. I replied that un der the circumstances i couia noi accept. I saw Dr. Bates in Columbia next day, and he congratulated me, saying. "We are going to run you for Governor." I told bim the circumstances and again said I could jiotaccept. Mr. James and Mr. Thomas came as committee next day from the farmers and urged me to run, and I told them my personal honor and duty would compel me to decline, as I had promised Governor Richardson not to run. I didn't know the farmers wanted me for Governor, and an honorable man could not run, having promised Richardson not to run. If I opposed him it would look like I was false. Notwithstanding I had twenty votes over Richardson and was ambitious, I felt that I would not be true to myself if I accepted the nomination. ITT spite of what 1 said, I found that my name would be proposed. I said to Philip Gilliard if my name is presented 1 could' not run. Notwithstanding this, my name was presented, and I sent to my brother, Dr. Earle, to say I could not accept. Who would say a man should accept office j at the sacrifice oi ms personal nonori lie asked Mr. Kollock that question, and the latter replied that no man would. "Who brought you out in 1890 af' ter "21" conference had brought out Eratlon as a candidate against-Tillman?" "Who was the twenty one conference? Twenty one men who arrogated to themselves to elect a man Governor. They had a perfect right to meet. I came out afterwards because I was not subject to the order of the twentv-one conference." "Will you be kind enough to tell the people how General Bratton was treated in your own county, Sumter, when he was running with you making common cause against Tillman and your committee was in charge of all arrangements for the campaign meeting?" "I hope and believe he was treated kindly. I had thegreatesl respect for him If )ho (lAmmi)iaa ?lifl nni twat him with, 1 know nothing about it." Mr. Kollock: "Didn't you ride up in a carriage driven by four horses?" Judge Earle: "I was not responsible for that, if my friends ^ot a carriage forme. ] have been out with Tillman not only wheu he rode, but his carriage was pulled by his admircis whib I had to walk." (Laughter.) "Are you willing to say now, as you often said in 1890 on the stump, that the Shell manifesto, which Tillman himself wrote, begins and ends with a lie and is a lie from beginning to end? If you have changed your mind about this manifesto will you kindly tell the people upon what ground and what newly discovered facts have brought such a wonderful change of view in so short a time?" "Yes, so far as corruption in oflice is concerned, lie did not charge the officers personally with dishonesty." Mr. Kollock: "Has he retracted that?"Judge Earle: "lie has said on the slump again anu again inai ne cnarged no personal corruption." I discussed charges against State ollicers and I said they were lies. Tillman has frequently said of my administration that it was honest and honorable. But some times we find men so bound up by prejudice and envy that they can not be kept down. He hoped that as we came nearer together we could be more like brothers. Mr. Kollock: "We are not making any big fight on you Judge, but are just having a little fun." "Judge Earle: "I know why it is. It is not because you love Tillman more, but Eirle less. (Cheers and cries "That's right.") Mr. Dargan kept on trying to interrupt Judge Earle but the latter paid no attention to him. At last Mr. Dargan said he only wanted about ten minutes. Judge Eirle: "I have nothing to do with you and nothing to do with this meeting." (Cheers.) Mr. Kollock published some more Jam o An ca mn Ai*<1or In tVllQ UUOllUU.J VU bUV> gnu\y * M .. morning's News and handed them along with the other. Judge Earle overlooked them an Mr. Kollock called his attention to the fact but added that he thought it hardly necessary for' him to answer them. J udge Earle exEressed a willingness to answer them ut the crowd yelled that they had enough and didn't want to hear any more. Mr. Dargau on his buggy wanted ten minutes time, but the crowd wouldn't hear to it and beguan to yell for Earle. Mr. Kollock and Ool. Dargan made an amusing if not pitiful spectacle of themselves and were so badly demolished that they let the Judge alone ?Register. THE STATE ALLIANCE. [CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE.] ing business.

The Terrible Trugeily Kaactcil by a Drunken Brute. Elberton, July 22.?Yesterday afternoon at twilight Dave Berryman, a white man, killed his wife, four little children, the oldest of whom was four years of age, and committed suicide. The awful tragedy was enacted at Berryman's humble home, three miles from Iioyston, in Madison county. Late in the afternoon Mr. Berryman, who was a man noted for his dissipation, though liked in a general way by those who knew him, was at Hull & Vaston's saw mill, a short distance by the country road from his home. He was intoxicated, though by no means helplessly drunk. Shortly be fore the hour for closing down he left the mill and went, it appears, directly to his home. When he arrived the four little children were playing in the house and the faithful young wife had prepared supper?as tempting a meal as the circumstances would permit. The drunken liucharirl ontareH Tn ft fftw moments six successive gunshots rang out upon the early evening air and neighbors rushed to the scene to find the fioor of of the little cottage bathed in blood, the dead bodies of the wife and children strewn about the room and the brutal husband lying across the bed, gasping in the agonies of death with his hand tightly clasped about the stock of a new breechloading gun. The supper that had been prepared by Mrs. Berry man was untouched upon the table aod the roam showed no uigns of disorder, the work of thte murderer having been quickly accomplished and without a struggle. Mrs. Berryman, the wife and mother, was killed first, and then in quick succession, the children, who were too small to flee for their lives or to the murderous assaults of their father, were shot one by one and their bodies fell to the floor, one of them across the breast of its mother. Berryman had coolly and deliberately loaaed the gun at each required interval and the sixth cartridge, tbe last of tiie third loading, he fired into his own person. It was when his family lay before him murdered, that he stepped across the room, fell face forward on the bed and stilled the hand that had rlready sent five lives into eternity. Berryman was dying when the neighbors reached the scene. He was already unconscious, and tbe deep, strangling breath of tbe inhuman murderer was pregnated with the fumes of whiskey; a broken bottle in his pocket furnished the first surmise lor the cause underlying me irageuy ?a husband had committed, perhaps, the most sensational tragedy in the criminal annals of Georgia while his brain was fired by drink. There was not an eyewitness to the enactment of the crime. The words that passed between husband and wife prior to the shooting will never be known. Mrs. Berry man was a come ly, industrious young woman. She loved her husband and had stood his dissipation with a fortitude rarely seen. She had frequently been treated inhumanly and yet she clung to him with that love that binds a wife to a husband over the lives of four innocent babes. It is know n that she felt keenly the humiliation of her circumstances but that did not meet the humiliation that she felt at her husband's insincerity and infidelity. She olten reproved Him for tne undue auenuon mai ne paid to anotuer woman in the neighborhood. He was absent from his home the larI ger part of yesterday; his wife suspected his whereabouts and as he reached home last night, probably upbraided him for his conduct. It convulsed him with angry passion. He snatched the gun from its rack and the slaughter of innocent lives was the sequel. The tracks on the bloody floor would indicate that he turned to the door to escape; he retraced, stopped and glanced at the bpdies of the dead, ft.ll faca forward on'the nearest couch and tlien, as if to atone for the bloody crime end ed his own life. Berry man was only 28 years old and of good parentage. He was once before married and his wife left him and secured a divorce on the ground of inhuman treatment. He had recently kn/t/trina InfoMllofo/l ttritVl annthpr W(1 L/UOVyLUO luiuukuiivvu nuu ,, maa in the neighborhood and in consequence became tired and dissatisfied with the youne wife that he murdered. He had frequently treated her roughly and on more than one occasion threatened to kill her. She attributed his brutality to the effects of dissipation,s however, and continued to live with* him, though he barely provided a subsistence for the family. His littTe children were bright and playful and at times he seemed t'o be food of them. The oldest was a little girl of 5 and her devotion to her father has been marked. Her mother encour-1 aged it in the hope that family ties would bring him closer to a sense of his duty. The youngest child was a babe of a few months only. It was in the arms of it3 mother when she fell and its body probably received the second shot that was fired. The heavy load of the gun ploughed though the little one's person, literally waring it intrk uhrpflq and huried itself in the' opposite wall. The other two children | were aged 2 and 4, respectively, and thev had been playing about the home only a few minutes before their little souls were swept into eternity.--Atlanta Journal.
