THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BADLY DAMAGED. . What a Leading' Democrat Thinks of the Situation! The special correspondent of the able Democratic journal, the Atlanta Conntltutton in Washing ton notes says : ('I met Governor Camnbell. the talented Democratic politician of Ohio, a short while ago. He is not at all hopeful about the Democratic prospects in the west, "The party is all scatter ed." he said. "and I don't like the outlook." Another Democrat, equally as prominent, who has never been a prominent office holder, but a hard worker, was even more in despair than Governor Campbell. "I don't want my name used." hesaid, "but I tell you I have never seen such uphill work in my life. When I urge mv party friends to insist on old-time Democratic doctrine on silver coinage, I am met by such men as Harter and the like, who clamor at once about flat money and such nonsense. They open ly proclaim they will vote with the Republicans before they will swallow such doctrine, and with him he has quite a large number ?of Democratic appointees. When I talk tariff reform, I am con fronted with the wild theories of Tom Johnson and Prank Hurd. The truth is, we are nil splic up. and there seems to be no force trying to pull us together. SAME THING DOWN HEHE. "Yes, said the Southern Democrat who heard this, "it is the same way in the South. Federal office holders who are Democrats are fighting Denson harder thim they arp fighting Republicans in Alabama, and in South Carolina the same clan is more energetic against Tillman than it has ever been againstine ~ ihe 'Republicans." " . "All over the - South the pap. suckers are rampant to read every body out of the party that favors any coining of silver, and that don I fall down and worship the "old man" whenever and wherever his name is mentioned". In the meantime, the '-old man" is quietly enjoying himself at Buzzard Bay, with some of the secretaries, cutting: bait. The only thing that seems to at all worry the "old man" is when the weather bureau sends a report from Washington to look out for bad weather. The next day the country is notified that the presi dent did not fish to day on ac count of the fear of bad weather. This seems to be of much more importance than the condition of the country, the low price of cotton, the number of unemploy ed men and the success of the Democratic party." These men make a heavy ar raignment. and it is not at all surprising that our prospects are not the b'tst in the world, and that we are in the condition of a man aboiii to take a plunge in tne dark." Speaking of the Democratic slump down in Georgia the Atlanta 1,'ountitution says ; ? The result, is not obe on which t\e Democrats can plume themse'.ves. The populists have made surprising gains, and there has been a serious slump in the Demociatic majority as compar ed wHli that of 1892. We had almost said that the slump was a surpri-ing one, but no one who has intelligently watched the progress of the campaign in this '>State can be surprised at the fallirg off in the Democratic majo.'.ty. In the very nature of things it was inevitable; and if the >nme sinister elements that produced confusion in the Demo cratic ranks in this campaign sha'.l retain their potency until the next one, the Democrats will! havo grounds for congratulation if they come out of it with any majority at all." Mr. George Thomas and Mrs. Sarah Kile were united in mar noge by Rev. I). \V. Hector at the residence of the bride in the West End. The groom was 70 and the bride 65. Mr. Thomas is a resident of Taylor county. Southern Krpolillranv A New Orleans democratic paper has jnst interviewed the sugar planters of Louisiana to ascertain how many of them have actually gone over to the Republican party on the tariff issue. The result is somewhat startling to the Democratic lead ers of that State. It is evident that the Demo crats have underestimated the strength of the recent revolt They are forced now, however, to admit that 54 per cent, of the Democratic planters of Louisiana are in favor of the new Republi can movement. 26 per cent op posed to it, and 20 per cent in a dangerous condition of uncer tainty. It is said, on good au thority, that most of those who are at present non committal are at heart in sympathy with the movement, but have not yet the courage of their convictions. There are, no doubt, many of them fully convinced that their best interests can only be con served by casting their lot with the Republicans. But so tenaci ous are the prejudices and tradi tions of Southern democracy that it is extremely difficult to break their party trammels and public ly announce themselves as Re publicans. It is significant, however, that all of the most prominent and influential plant ers have taken the decisive step and others are upon tha eve of following their example. The present indications point to the election of three Republican Congressmen from the sugar dis tricts. This seems to be the dawning of a new era in the South. There has always been a strong He publican sentiment in that sec tion, but the Republican vote has been so habitually suppressed that but little or no effort has been made toward efficient Re publican organization. New York Free Traders for Wllaou. The report that a large fund is to be raised by the tree traders of .this city for use in securing the re-election of Chairman Wil son Trbin West~Virginia is not at all surprising. Mr. Wilson is a free trader and a friend of free traders. He has served them in season and out of season and has done more than any other man in Congress to destroy American industries in the interest of im porters of foreign goods. Desert ed factories by hundreds and idle workmen by thousands in every part of the country testify to his success in paralyzing na tive interests for the benetit of foreign manufacturers and their importing agents in the United States. Wilson needs help bad ly in his desperate tight for re election, and every dollar given will serve as a cheer for his baleful and unpatriotic attacks upon American industries in the interest of their foreign competi tors.? K. v. Prtw. The following is the section of the Democratic resolutions adopt ed by the Harrison county Democ racy relating to the revised Wil son bill. It was reported by Hon. John J. Davis : ? The acceptance of tlio 8<snate-Uor man-Brioe sugar trust tariff bill, with the protection therein accorded to trusts ftud monopolies, which is but a small percent less in all its features than that Riven to them by the odious McKinley bill, an d the lowering of tho Hug of tariff reform evidenced by sucb acceptance and the hoisting of U'U piratical Hug of tho Senatorial conspira tors and of the trusts and other combines under pretense of fulfilling the pledges made to the people, is a cowardly sur render of tho principles of Democracy, an almndonment of the plain declwa tions of the Chicago platlorm and that too at the iustinco of n trust which 111 the language of Hon. \\. L- W llson, would reap u profit of $40,000,0011. We advise our readers to keep this platform and see how it coin pares with the utterances of cer-1 tain Democratic orators who are now engaged in praising up that bill. If the new law is "but a small per cent less than the Mc Kinley bill," they ought certainly be a ashamed to say the country is getting prosperous. Hugh Miller, of Monroe coun ty. attempted to catcli his horse by the tail, a very unwise thing to do. The horse resented it by kicking him in the stomach, pro ducing injuries which proved fa tal the next day. The town council of Buckhac-. non has offered a reward of $250 for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who caused^ the fire in that town last week?''

Mr. Wilson, in our judgment, never could have been elected to Congress in this dis trictif he had announc ed that if elected he would favor free iron, free coal and free lum ber.?Fairmont Index of July 25, 1894.

In IB90 Wil|iam Mc_ Kin ley was bUrnetS^hf effigy in the English manufacturing city of) Sheffield, but in '94 William L. Wilson was wined and dined in London because he is the author of a free tradetariff bill. These are significant facts.? Minneapolis Tribune '?Voters of West Virginia, there are just a few things which you should not fail to remember when you cast your ballot in No vember. You should not fortret that the Democratic party has been working in every conceiva ble manner to deceive the"people with regard to the real effect of the Wilson policy. You should not forget that they have been caught in more than one mean trick to deceive voters."?Intc Mounlain. Ten years ago Wm. L. Wilson favored protection and voted to retain the duty on coal, wool, lumber and iron ore. You voted for him then as a protectionist Now he comes to you entirely changed in his ideas?favoring , free trade on all the above nam ed articles?and asks you to again send him back to Congress. ?Ex. ??The Democrats concede that it will take hard work to carry Marion county, and work of the hardest kind to re-elect the author of the Wilson bill in No vember. Hitherto Mr. Wilson's friendly words to the miners hav<j been given him strength and popularity among them, but i^ the face of his vote for free coal and his earnest advocacy of this ??pop-gun" free coal billin the House, Democratic orators about here lind themselves in a peculiar position. The Net cm correspondent talked withanum l>er of prominent Democrats and they didn't take a sanguine view of the situation. On the contra ry, Republicans are confident and one of the leaders in? tne county predicts Dayton's election by anywhere from 1,000 to 1JS00 majority?Wheeling Nave. M w FOR SUFFERfNC WOMEN. DR.
