It is given out, that Bowler will
likely render a decnion refusing

does, it will be an outrago, and
a travesty on representative gov

is one of the~most high handed
and arbitrary acts wt ever heard

Governor Campbell was asked last
night to harmonize his expressed ■wil
lingness to take "chances" ou a free
silver platform four years ago and ins
candidacy to-i'ay on a gold standard
platform. He met the inquiry as
follows :
"I did not favor free coinage by the
United States alone for years ago,
ner do I now. althoughlam an inter
national bi-metaliist. What X said
four years ago was tbat I would take
the chances of election upon the plat
form as I found it."
That is the right kind of princi
ple. When the party speaks in
convention assembled, its action
should be final and binding, and
heartily acquiesced in by all its
members, who should jump aboard
the platform and make the most
of it. This is the way that splen*
did Democrat, ex-Gov. Campbell,
who was recently nominated by
the Democrats of Ohio, by accla
matian, for the governorship of
tbat S'ate,regards it. •
He takes the platform as he
finds it, and rieks Iiis chances of
election on it. Not as expressive
of his individual views, but as ex
pressive, of the Democratic voice
of the people offQhttfj^flanven
lion assembled.
action of this popular aßd splen
did Democrat, and that of Gén.
Watt Hardin of Kentucky, who.
nominated on a sound money plat
form, endorsing and eulogizing
the administration of President
Cleveland, not. only refuses to
take the platform a? he found it,
and to be bound by the action of
the convention, but embraces the
first opportunity to revile and
stamp upon the platform upon
which he was nominated and to
assail the Democratic administra
The one, a pure, loyal Demo
crat, who believes in the fiat of
the party, takes his chances of
election on the platform as he
found it. and the other, a ranting
free silverite and demagogue, sets
up his individual will in defiance
of the party's expressed deciee,
and proceeds to kick the platform
as he found it.
Can there be any true Democrat
«md party man, who but admires
and honors tho position of Gov
Campbell,and despises and con
ge^Hny^Tne r e is only one way
to preserve the autonomy of the
party and mafce it forceful and
romm ««n-omr siuling all indi
vidual preferences,to stand by its
fiat and expressed will in conven
tion assembled. The man who does
not do this,places himself outside
of the pale of the Democratic
party,as he violates one of its
most sacred doctrines,and the man
or paper, who holds up such ac
tion to the gaze of intelligent men
and"Democrats as the right and
proper thing fnd lomethmg to be
admiied and imitated, is not only
not a democart, but doesn't know
the first principles of democracy.
Who is the truo Democrat,
Campbell, who takes his chance»
of election, on the platform as he
found it, or, Hardin, who pro
ceeds to kick the platform as he

Tobacco Factory.
Wo are g!ad to learn that there
is a bright prospect of a tobacco
factory being started here in the
near future. Mr. E. L. Gladn#y

A few years ago she was us barren
of these things as Bastrop is to
day. All that Bastrop needs to
forge her to the front, is a few
men like Mr. Gladney,who have
tho enterprise and capital,and are
uot afraid to expend the latter in

man, with grain in his barns, fat horses,
sleek cattle and blooded sheep and hogs
in his pasture, and money to his credit
in the bank. He attends to hisjerops
and has no time to sit on the fence and
discuss silver. A neighbor of his, who
is a rampant Populist and silver advo
cate, passed his place the other day. He
accosted Uncle Billy as follows:
"Well, Uncle Billy, when do yon
think we will have bettor times?"
"Have you got any fat cattle?" asl:ed
Uncle Billy.
"Have you got any sheep?"
"Have you got my fat hogs?"
"Hardly enough to make my meat. "
