SrANroiiD, Kv., - March 8, 1895 W. P. WALTON. The chairman of tho democratic county committee has called tho members to meet hero next Monday to consider matters affecting tho welfare of tho party in this county. Wo commend his action and trust there will be a unanimouB to tho call. That the party is in bad shapo hero bb well as elsewhere, tho recent election fully demonstrated. It will tako wise counsel and skillful effort to harmonize tho factions and heal the breaches, and the work of doiog so can not be too early begun. Of course tho question of nominating a candidate for the Legislature will bo considered at the meeting Monday, and it is to be hoped that it will be done with an eye single to to the interests of the party and without regard to any particular candidate. Primary elections seem to havo fallen into disrepute. They are costly and uoually result in Increasing instead of allaying bitterness in the ranks. The suggestion is therefore made that in the selection of a candidate for tho Legislature tho meeting to be held at the county seat to be compo3ed of demo crats from every part of the county, who Bhnll confer together and agree upon and nominate a candidate who is not only worthy and well qualified, but who can lead the party to certain victory. Lincoln county can be and she must be redeemed from republican dominion. A terrific, and what's more's the pity a just, arraignment of the 53d Congress, which is gone, but which unfortunately will never be forgotten, appears in Tuesday's Courier-Journal. Its shortcomings, its incompetency, its procrastination, are all depicted with a master hand. Cleveland and Carlisle alone averted the financial panic, which Congress was bring ing about, nnd but for them few members of the late Congress could venture home without risking a reception by an infuriated mob. The editor does not, however, dispair of the future of the democratic party. Its principles have survived men who masqueraded in them before. They will always survive error, ignorance and cowardice on the part of any set of men who for the time being may secure control of tho party organization. The men who disowned and deserted democracy in Congress are of to day. Indeed, they are already of yesterday. Democracy is forever. Let true democrats everywhere set their faces to the future. Tub 53J Congress had a democratic majority over the republicans of DC. The 5Jth will have a republican mcjority of 120. Stupidity, blundering and failure to keep promises on the part of the democrats entrusted with power, is what caus" ed the tremendous change in the make up of the two bodies. The unfaithful have been scourged from the temple. Let the republicans show more of pa triotism than partismship or they will go marching out two years hence. The ex-officers of Clay county are a aweet kettle of fish. Uoward, who was sheriff, is under indictment for tho embezzlement of public funds, Jailer Morgan and his son, are charged property of the county to their own use and tho assessor is on trial for murder. It is needless to add that tho whole kit are republicans. Thero are hardly enough democrats in that benighted region to count a quorum. It is announced that the president will not include Joplin's namo in his recess appointments. This will leave Mrs. Helm mistress of the situation and continue Montgomery in the hole his constituents put him in last fall. Everybody who recognizes tho merits of tho distinguished lady will rejoice at her victory Bho has won over the political strikers and congratulate the citizens of Secretary Carlisle will beard the lion in his den. He will make his first speech in Kentucky at Danville right in Gov. Knott'a "midst," and we are sure he will be able to convince even tho hero of Duluth that the financial policy of the present administration is tho only safe one. It has maintained the credit of the government unimpaired at a crisis that threatened to seriously injure it. The democrats of the 51st Congress refused to vote for a resolution of thanks to Speaker Reed and Monday he got in his reveDge by declining to vote a similar resolution to Mr. Crisp. The czar may have been cast in the mold of physical greatness, but in all other points he is a veritable pigmy. The editor of the Columbia Spectator is a hopeful soul. He is certain that the State will go 30,000 democratic in November. We hope he is right, but a big change will have to come over the spirit of the dreama of the voters if the prophecy is fulfilled. Hon. Oassius M. Clay is temporarily eido tracked in his chase after the gubernatorial nomination. His wife baa presented him with a 12 pound boy, which she has named for him, and he is at home flinging lullabys and mixing doses. There are 65 cases tlot Springs, Ark. l That death lurks in the air and is ready to cut us down, when wo least expect it, W88 shown in a remarkable way hi Cincinnati, Tuesday. A man, walk ing along tho street, unconscious of harm, was seen to drop dead. Investigation proved that ho had been killed by a bullet from a pistol, which a woman acci dentally discharged in making up a bed, her husband having put it under his pillow. The ball crashed through tho side of tho frame house and iato tho man's head and he went to the great beyond without hardly knowing what hurt him. Timrrv year? in Congress ought to satisfy the ambition of the averago pap sucker, but Judge Ilolman, of Indiana, who was turned down in too cyclone last fall, is said to feel very keenly the chagrin of having to go. We can not say we join with him in his sorrow. He was a raro "objector" in his day, but ho objected most to petty ippropriationp,and was ever ready to add to the pension load, to curry the favor of his soldier constituency. The republican State central committee has fixed May 29th as the tUy and Louisville as the place for holding their State convention. Some of the candidates tried to have a later date named, but Col. Brad ley's forces wero in the saddle and it went as they said. The little kick against it will come to naught and harmony and good will will prevail. It is only the democrats who make fools of themselves. "Don't bo led off by the free coinage craze," writea Judge M. J. Durham, cashier of the Central Bank, Lexington . "Bimetalism it right, but free coinage is wrong. Make all money of equal val ue. An earthquake shock was felt as Boon as Mr. Cleveland set foot on North Carolina's shore.
