No Successful Opposition.
The Herald does not agree with its
able contemporary, the Ashville Aegis,
In Its prediction that Captain Johnston
will have successful opposition in the
race for the nomination. We do not be

who will enter the race for anything fur
ther than establishing a name In political
circles, hoping that toe future may bear
him fruit.—Union Springs Herald.

The Mobile Register Should Take Notioe.
The Journal is waiting for the Mobile
Register to discover that on the occasion
of Captain Johnston’s recent visit to the
city that the captain called on the gov
ernor in company with his friend, State
Treasurer Craig Smith. The governor
had his private secretary, Captain Val
den, present at the little seance. This
ought to furnish the Register with suffi
cient circumstantial evidence to make
out its case against the governor and the
captain that they are In a combine.—

Doubtful iflt Finds Its Man.
The Advertiser's coup d'etat, which
come out after the late elections, has
been sidetracked. Governor Oates is out
In a speech declaring he will not be a
candidate for governor, and will not ac
cept the nomination. So the Advertiser
must nominate some other man. Here
tofore the people have had their candi
date and the Advertiser has had Its can
didate. and it has always triumphed In
the fight by forcing by diplomatic skill
Its candidate on the people. But all good
things must have an end as well as evil
ones. The Advertiser has great reason
to rejoice over Its former triumphs. It
speaks volumes for the power and In
fluence of that great newspaper organ,
but It ought to be satisfied with Its
fonner victories and follow the people
Jn the coming contest; otherwise It may
lose its prestige, which has been of so
much value to It in the past. It may
press its claims a hit too far and fall very
hard. Indeed, the little fall It has Just
experienced In pressing Governor Oates'
claims to a point where most of Its gold
allies left It alone ought to be a warning.
The Mobile Register, the Birmingham
News, the Anniston Hot Blast and the
Huntsville Argus refused to go with the
Advertiser In pressing Governor Oates'
clslms after Capt. Joseph F. Johnston
announced his candidacy. But, notwith
standing this, (he Advertiser says the
gold standard men must have ano!h“r

we suppose, such as the Advertiser Is
accustomed" to making. We doubt If tills
great organ can find its man.—Progres
• * •
The Advertiser Ingenious.
The Journal has never doubted the
ability of the Montgomery Advertiser,
but has always questioned Its methods
and judgment. It Is quite Ingenious 111
Its methods and effective In Its assaults
upon opponents because of Its Ingenious
methods. Here Is a fair Illustration of
Its methods of attack. In today's Issue
It says: “The Cherokee Sentinel, one of
the most radical populist papers In the
state, proposes honest elections' as the
first and foremost plank 111 that party's
platform, and the free coinage of silver
as the second. The State Herald, Cap
tain Johnston's mouthpiece, proposes to
make free silver the first, and a ‘fair and'
honest' vote the second. The difference
between the two papers. It will be seen.
Is merely the relative importance of the
two planks; they are really together.”
Now. to a person—even a person of more
than ordinary Intelligence—tills looks
like a center shot, and Is calculated to
demoralize Johnston's friends and put
them to rout. Hut let the reader stop a
minute and think, and he will readily see
how Illogical and liow very ridiculous
It Is. and how absurd the position In
which the Advertiser has placed Itself.
Now. really, what harm can there be In
the free silver advocates having two
such planks In their platform as one de
claring for free silver and the other for
honest elections? Both of these planks
have been Inserted In the state demo
cratic platform by former democratic
slate conventions, and the esteemed Ad
vertiser has hitherto regarded them ns
very good democratic planks. if the
populists chose to take two very good
planks In the democratic platform and
adopt them, more’s the credit to them
and to the democratic party, from which
It steals Us two planks. But let’s take
another view' of it. Suppose the demo
cratic state convention declares for the
single gold standard and dishonest elec
tions. and yet this is what the Advertiser,
by Inference, would have the party do,
what would be the result? No one doubts
what would be the result. And this Is
not what the Advertiser would have the
party do unless It sought and Invited Us
defeat. How many people are dally mis
led by Just such Ingenious assaults upon
all opposition, simply because they have
not got time to stop and think.—Mont

The Register's Inconsistency.

ble him to foresee that If Captain John
ston be nominated by the democratic
party for governor of Alabama the dem
erratic party will be defeated by the re
If the Register had not been bo anxious
to promote the political aspirations of its
townsman for the senate it surely would
not have penned the above sentence. To
show the fallacy, not to say the absurdi
ty, of the argument we have only to sub
stitute the name of Gov. W. C. Oates for
that of Captain Johnston. Have the
populists and republicans any more love
for Governor Oates than they have for
Captain Johnston? Has Governor Oates
ever pandered to the prejudices of either
the republicans or populists? If so, when
and where? If the argument has any
force against the nomination of Captain
Johnston, it is much stronger against
the nomination of Governor Oates. Cap
tain Johnston is in favor of the free coin
age of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1, and
Governor Oates is not. The populists
agree with Captain Johnston on this
point and disagree with Governor Oates.
Yet the Register was rampant fov the
nomination of Governor Oates to succeed
himself. None so blind as they who will
The Register goes on to say:
"Captain Johnston Is not enough of a
free-silvor-or-bust politician to attract
a single dyed-in-the-wool populist. He
is recognized by them as one of us—a
man who is a democrat from conviction
and who will under all circumstances
g!v8 his support to the party nominees.
The populists have no use for that kind
Does Governor Oates differ from Cap

democratic party? Will the Register an

party, will the populists or republicans

for him how can he be elected governor?
Yet the Register show'ed its temper be

Why Not Have Harmony?
For several months past there has been
talk In all portions of Alabama about the
importance of having harmony In the
ranks of the democratic party In next
year’s state election. This talk hits been
indulged In by those who favor the free
and unlimited coinage of sliver and those
wiio favor the single gold standard. For
several months It seemed that a repeti
tion of the Gate s-Johnston contest was
to he had, ami this was mainly the causu
of the expressions In favor of harmoniz
ing the difference* in the party sufficient
ly to agree on a candidate for governor
without having a bitter contest inside

finally declined to become a. candidate
for governor. This leaves no candidate

Captain Johnston is a man who Is in
every way worthy to serve as Alabama's
chief executive. He is recognized as one
of the best, business men in the state,
and certainly no other Alabamian has
done more work for his party than has
Captain Johnston. Then why the neces
sity of drafting another candidate?
When there is no one else asking to be
governor, why the necessity of bringing
a pressure t.o force the candidacy of an
These are pertinent, questions, and nre

Let the Fight Go On.
“Let the fight go on, but let it he con
ducted without rancor, and above all let
It be understood that the contest ends
with the nomination and that every dem
ocrat will loyally support the nominee
of our convention.”
The above la the closing sentence of an]
editorial in the Advertiser. It wants the
"tight to go on, but wants it to be con
ducted without rancor.” How is this
possible when the gold monometallists
persist In virtually calling the silvcritcs
a set of fools and Its leaders a set of place
seekers? "And above all let It be under
stood that the contest ends with the
nomination.” Of course those who par
ticipate in the convention will, ns honor
able men, abide by I he nomination. But
what about those who are read out of the
partv by the Advertiser and its followers
and not allowed to vote in the primaries?
There are thousands of these, and with
out them it is impossible to elect any
democrat as the successor of Governor
Oates. It can safely he counted on that
there are at least one-half the white men
In Alabama In favor of restoring silver
to the same position it occupied In 1873.
How then does the Advertiser and its fol
lowers expect to elect a democrat? Will
they countenance and advocate Daiiui
box Stuffing as in the days when the con
test was between white men on the one
tilde and negroes and a few carpet-bag
gers and scalawags on the other? The
contest now is between white men and
white men, good citizens arid good citi
zens. The policy of the Advertiser. If
successful, will surely disrupt the party
and turn the government over to the re
publicans. In saying this we do not
mean to countenance any desertion from
Ihe democratic ranks.
As for ourselves, we shall fight the gold
hug element until a nomination is made.
Bui after that time we shall advocate
the election of any democrat that may
he nominated.—Opelika Evening News.

"On With the Fight.”
In order that our readers may get a
full Insight Into the sayings and doings
of some of the leading democratic dailies
of Alabama at this critical Juncture, the
Argus reproduces on its first page, in its
entirety, a forceful editorial from the
Birmingham State Herald of Friday. It
shows the reckless and defiant drift of
the Montgomery Advertiser and Mobile
Register (In the face of Captain John
ston's practically assured nomination),
in a startling hut true light. There must
be more than any ordinary prompting
for the desperate tone of these two Jour
nals There are many other equally con
sistent and faithful advocates of the gold
standard who do not view the situation
In this Jaundiced and destructive light.
The Argus, while an earnest supporter
of Mr. Cleveland's financial policy, recog
nizes In the strained and far-fetehed is
sue presented by the Register and Ad
vertiser in regard to a strictly stale
campaign, a degree of proscriptive in
tolerance, which It condemns in common
with Ihe great majority of the people,
without qualification. If there Is any
doubt In any one's mind about the per
sonal malignity which stimulates the
Advertiser, for instance, let him read the
following, which appeared like the wire
tipped cracker of a hull whip, at the end
of an editorial of Friday assailing some
recent pacific utterances of Governor
"On with the fight to the finish. It Is
for the best. There can be no mouthing
after a hard fight and a clean licking.
The Advertiser has no sort of misgiving
a* to Ihe wisdom of this policy, or as to
the outcome of the contest. The right
will prevail. Parly loyaity will be up
held. Mutineers will be rebuked. Selfish
leaders will be disciplined into line. In
sincere demagogues will be shamed Into
silence. The party will be stronger for
Note the phrases—"on with the fight,
"mutineers" and such! Who would imag
ine that these refer to party brethren
whose ranks outnumber those of the
hari-kari way of thinking, set forth in
the Register and Advertiser, as much as
forty to one?
The spirit and Intent of all this Is de
plorable, but it cannot be that the demo
cratic masses will succumb before It.
When even Governor Oates stumbles into
a praise-v jrthy spirit this fierce inter
necine blade leaps forth from the Adver
tiser. It is not difficult to see who is the
real “mutineer!”—Huntsville Argus.

Keep Up With the Great Majority.
The few state Journals which seem to
feel constrained to continue their oppo
sition to the nomination of Capt. Joseph
F. Johnston for governor may depend
upon it that they are far away from
the well nigh universal sentiment within
the ranks of the democratic partj* In Ala
bama. The tide is so strong toward
Johnston as the best, safest and surest
solution of the gubernatorial problem
that there is no mistaking it. There
would not be found within the entire
state enough of those democrats of any
body-to-beat-Johnston kind to form a
faction—no, not even a small faction
worthy of the name. They are over
estimating themselves, and by their au
dacious noisiness they have persuaded
themselves that their numbers are great
er and their ranks more compact than
Who Is the man they are to lead forth
for the altar to sacrifice? A week has
passed since the labor of finding some
other than Governor Oates was begun
and not even a single name has been
paraded. No good ground has been given
for their continued effort to divide and
dismember the party; for this would be
the only certain result of their proposed
plan. They cannot in their hearts be
laying a predicate to depart from the
tents which have so long shielded th^m
and theirs. No. we cannot for a moment
believe this. Rut as far as within them
lay they are injuring their party, white
