The most disgraceful outrage ever, committed upon a people took place Wednesday night, when a gang of drunken deputy sheriffs rushed upon a crowd of men cursing and covered them with guns and demanded that they submit to arrest. They then proceeded to line them up and- hand cuff them. All the time they used the most profane and vulgar lang uaee in the presence of ladies. The only charge against the men was they were standing around an amusement Ptand in which it is said was a slot machine. The managere ot the park savs that he had no knowl edge of such a machine, the man who had the show said that he had run the to the head of the family being a same at the white fair. 1 p-bUp inan.

All of those who were in at tendance last year will be expected In the Hands of the It often happens in a political con test that designing men take an up right, honest man and usehim as a tool. This is do tew thing, and yet it seems that mankind is so given to stumbling and to being blindfold ed, that he will never "De able to overcome that weakness. It does seem, however, that men would tum ble to this deviltry some time, but strange to say, they go 'on falling down and getting up. There is a class of old professional, wornout politicians in Nashville who have for years been living on the reputations of others. They study the tricks in politics from day to day, and become close students of men, and they set a trap to catch some good honest man of whom they can make a hobby horse to ride up to the pie counter; then they line up and go running to some man who has an ax to grind and the money to pay for the grind ing, and they say to him, "we have the finest stone in the world, we can make your ax as sharp as a razor." They then explain that they have been successful in beguiling so and so, who is a highly educated col ored man and well thought of Tjy the colored people, and if you will do so and so, we can do thus and so, and the man who wants to gain, an influence will tumble to and shell out his hard coin. The lean, hungry grafters will skip around the corner and divide up. After the division is made, and they, have chucked the early Monday night, and also new scholars who wish to enter. There are no charges , for tuition at this school. It is .conducted for the benefit of those who cannot at tend in the day. MOB LYNCHED A WHITE DOWN IN ARKANSAS. MAN Valpass, Who Had a Negro Wife, Aided His Mulatto Sons in Slaughter of Officers. (Tennessean-American) ' Dumas, Ark., Sept. 27. Forcing their way into the Desha County jail here, between fifty and one hun dred men, members of a mob formed fco quietly that the authorities had rot the slightest warning, overpow-1 ered the deputies in charge and took Chas. Malpass, Sr., white, to a water tank and hanged him early today. The mob then dispersed without The lynching followed a pitched battle late yesterday at the home of Malpass, in which Sheriff W. D. Pres ton, of this county, Deputy Sheriff Barney Stiel and two mulatto sons of Malpass were killed, and Malpass wounded. Malpass' injuries were at lirst believed to be mortal, but when he was brought here and placed in jail his wounds were found not to he serious. The wife of Malpass, a Negress, and Malpass' younger son, a mulatto, escaped from the house during the fighting. The authorities say they do not think the Negress and the boy engaged in the battle yesterday and for this reason it is "it thought they will be sought fur ther in connection with the affair. The sheriff's posse had gone to the Malpass house to arrest the two mu latto sons of Malpass. The authori ses say the community lived in a state of almost constant terror be cansp of the Malpass family,, against which prevailed intense feeling owing nieht.

The con pi" were very popular and a host of friends were present, Mr. and Mrs. Morgan left that night for Nashville, where they will reside. few sheckels down in their jeans, they strike a bee line for their prey, and the first thing they will tell him will be the.ld stereotyped spefect of race pride; good citizenship and sacrifice for the good of the people. They go on to say that we are all pcor, and cannot put any money into th's thing, but thus and so must be done for the good of our race. It is strange indeed that so many of our good men cannot see the folly of clicking in with these old wornout grafting politicians. It is time that the Negro men should stand up as men, and do what they conscien tiously believe to be to the best in terest of the Negro people. They should have learned by this, day that it is foolish to continue butting their heads against a stone wall, and that the only successful method of tearing down such a wall will be to start at the top and take off stone by stone, and tear, the old wall down to the very bottom and make a new start. Holding office does not mean good! citizenship in every case. In days past Negroes held office all through the S6uth. They have been in pub lic office from the' United States Senate down to deputy sheriff, and what has it profited the Negro as a race? Is it not a fact that the cost has been greater than the profit? Only recently Oklahoma was admitted as a state. The old regime of Negro politicians had held sway in that ter ritory up to that time, but they COLLEGES OPEN IN FULL THIS WEEK DMNUS CLIMAX.

At Meharry the usual Platform exercises were held in the chapel Wednesday morning, at which, as heretofore, many of the ministers and business men of the city were present to meet and greet the student body to our city.

Politics is a game of chance, and the fellow who knows how to play the card but wins A great general in the late civil war said, "War is hell." He might have with equal propriety eaid : the same thing about politics. Justice and conscience are thrown to the in the West, and to-day Negroes in winds when men are seekn an office, but the Negro with all his boast ing, has not yet learned that one secret of the game. He is conscien tious, with all of his faults, and Is intensely humane, he will forg:ve iind forget in a day, and while he is trying to do, fair by the white man in politics, he turns around to discover that the white man's com panion is slipping the h ndcufis on his wrist, and in the next, minute he sees himself being proved off the away for future reference, so P be- political checker board, and sacrea hooves the Negro to otart at the al phabet of the poll 'cal game tnd learn to be politicians.

Special to the Globe: Pulaski, Tenn., Sept. 25. The sixth annual Negro fair at Pulaski closed here last Saturday night. At least one-third of the twelve thousand Ne groes of Giles county passed through the gates. A great many also came from Franklin, Decatur and all Inter mediate stations, taking advantage of the reduced rates. Dr. J. D. Fowler, who formerly practiced medicine here about eight years ago, and Dr. R. F. Boyd, who was reared in this county, came down from Nashville to attend the fair. Each one of these gentle nun gave some wholesome advice to the vast audience in their snort but interesting talks, especially was that of Dr. Boyd very highly compliment ed. Dr. T. W. Stephens, of Colum bia, was here two days. He made an interesting talk on tuberculosis, causes and prevention. Dr. W. E. Steers, of Decatur, Ala., had durinp the fair a fine exhibit of his Cottage Home Infirmary. He came up Friday evening and the people were very much pleased to hear his appropri ate discourse on "The Negro Woman as a Sicknurse." The long desired hopes and expec tations of the management of the colored fair arc beginning to be real ized. There is better care for live stock and the improvement of the breed. There was on exhibition a larger number than usual of horses, mares, milk cows, sheep, goats, chiclo ens, household productions, fruits and flowers and works of art.. Below we name a few of the persons awarded premiums: P. T. Fitzpatrick, stallion 3 years old: George Pryor, mare 4 years old; J. B. Boyd, second premium mare 4 years old; T. R. Holt, colt 2 years old; Tom Henderson, gelding 4 years old; E. C. Gordon, best pair of mules; Rev. Wm. Jones, best 4 mule team; P. T. Fitzpatrick, jack 2 years old; R. W. Rowe, short horn cow; Carroll Rhodes Poland China boar; Will Tiers, Jersey cow and calf; Mrs. James Franklin, best baby twins; POLITICAL POT BOILS HOT LOOKS LIKE REGULAR LAND SLIDE New Daily, Comes Opportunely CAMPAIGNING THE ABSORBING TOPIC NEGROES ON BOTH SIDES. MAJORITY IN RANKS OF REGULARS REPUBLICAN LILY WHITEISM CROPS OUT INLEPENDENTS LUKEWARM 'MAYOR HOWSE, RE-ELECTION ASSURED BIG VOTE EXPECT ED. On every corner and in every home the question that is uppermost in the minds of the people of Nash ville is the coming election. The regis tration is the largest ir. the history of the city which clearly indicates the interest the people are taking in this contest. Both sides are claim ing victory, and from all sections the votes will be well up to the registra tion. Since the advent of The Demo crat, the color of the situation is con siderably changed from the view point of public expression. . Hereto fore the Regulars have been with out an organ as neither the Banner nor the Tennessean would print their news fully, and when they said anything it was always in a sarcastic manner. This was a great handicap to the Regulars, but they determined not to be humiliated in this way forever, so they have started the Democrat. The fight Is on in full lorce now, and will run through this week, and on up to the night of the ! 1th, when it is the plan to have a big rally on the Public Square. The Negroes ,as has been the case for several years, are divided. Some are working like Trojans for the reg ular Democrat ticket, while others are bending every energy and effort for the Independent ticket. The large majority of the Negroes, however, is standing up with the Regulars. The Lily White Republicanism will not down, and it becomes a more and more distasteful morsel to the Negro voters of Nashville. They refer to the Independent faction as a luke warm people, and express themselves as determined to vote with the old line Democrat, headed by Mayor Miliary E. Howse. The contest in the Mayor election is conceding to the Regulars now, but the supporters of the state Democracy are working to have a landslide, and convince the Independents that fututre efforts on their part will be futile. Mrs. Rachel Anthony, best developed baby girl; Mrs. M. J. Bramlette, pre served peaches; Mrs. M. A. Bridge forth, shawl and hand-bag hand made; Mrs. Bettie Maxwell, plum and cherry wine; Mary G. Holbert, silk quilt; Mrs. A. F. Morrell, peach preserves; Mrs. L. G. Stephens, hand bag and neck lace, home made. There are about one hundred and twenty-five premiums awarded in the F. Hall on household productions and garden vegetables. RETURNS FROM VACATION. Rev. and Mrs. W. S. Ellington and ron, W. S. Jr., and Mr. R. C. Patton returned to the city Tuesday night horn a very delightful vacation spent in several interesting eastern (ities. The party left Nashville Sep tember 11, going first to Pitsburgft, Pa., where they attended the sessions of the National Baptist Convention. Leaving Pittsburgh on Sunday, the party went to Washington, D. C, for a short stay, going from there to Brooklyn, N. Y., from which place they made delightful trips into New York City, seeing many historical places of interest. Returning from New York to Philadelphia, a short but enjoyable stop was made in Bal timore, Md., and from Philadelphia an outing to Atlantic City, where the cooling breezes of the ocean, strolls on the famous board walks and sights of the beautiful beaches overed with shells added greatly to the pleasure of the tourists.
