Wo have boforo us a lengthy
oiroular issuod by Mr. Sam Cross-land,
who is, anil has boon for many
months, n candidato for tho
Democratic nomination for con-gross.
Tho circular is nn attack
upon tho Domooratio
al district coramittoo, and an ofTort
to discredit tho action ot tho
in tho calling of tho primary
election. Tho committee, it
seems, did not adopt Mr. Cross-land's
plans, and ho attompts to
raiso a groat huo and ory about
and "rascally election
The committoo met in
session, as is customary in
distriot, Btato and national committees,
and this woli known party
usage moves Mr. Grassland to
talk about "locked doors." Mr.
Grassland was at Faducah, and in
the committoo room, aud could
have asked tho committoo for an
audience, had he desired one, and
doubtless would have boon granted
one, but this ho failed to do.
and now seeks to make capital fori
his personal consumption out of touching
tue regularly hold meeting of the
committee. This louks veiy like
the action of a man who, having
no meritorious claims, sooks to
play tho demagogue in an effort to
prejudice the people against tlio
committee. Anothor insidious of-fort
along tho same lino and with
tho same motive in view is his reference
to the resolutions adopted

as "cut and driod." Tho rosolu
tions offered by tho gentloman
from Maytiold, who represented
tho ohairman of tho Graves county
committee, were by no moans
damp, and strange to note, they
woro out to fit exactly tho wants of
Mr, CroBsland. Perhaps this was
merely a coincident, and no doubt
Mr. Grassland is very grateful to
tho Mayfiold lawyer for arranging
tho timoly coincidenco. Anothor
objeotion offered is tho timo fixed
for tho primary. It is too early
to suit Mr. Grassland. Lot us soo
about this. Ho haB boon an avowed
candidato for montlu, and
his acquaintance of long
standing in a mini bo r of tho counties,
ho has boon in n numbor of
them, pushing his fight. Two yoars
ago the committoo mot in Fulton
April 17, and called
elootion for Juno 2, only
days intervening between tho
call and tho dato of the primary,
This year thero are seventy days
intervening a month longor. In
a numbor of tho primaries heretofore
held, one of tho candidatos
was in congress and August was
selooted to give him from .'50 to 00
days in whioh to mako tho canvass
ttftor the adjournment of congross.
Mr. Grassland is an older man
than Mr. James, and ho has had
official prominonco in a largo portion
of tho district, and ho has
had every opportunity that other
men havo had to extend his ac-
Suaintance. In 1890, when tho
aily newspapers dosortod tho party,
and many of tho old londors
stood aloof and gavo comfort and
counsel to tho onomy, there was a
Macedonian cry in oyory dirootion
from tho people for holp, and it
was a warm grooting that tho do-fenders
of tho old faith rocoivod
from tho pooplo, whothor thoy

cause they love. Where was Mr.
Grassland then? It was a time for
men to give test of their oourage, J
and tasto ot tliat talent that lito
thorn for public service. Yet with
those groat opportunities, yea,
great duties then at
hatiil, Mr. Grassland, after a career
of public offioe, months of canvas-sing
and soventy days to visit
thirtoon counties, seeks to gain
prominence by an attempt to dis
credit established party usages.

Another of Mr. Grassland's
is the secret ballot. The
secret ballot has always been the
oustom in Congressional primaries.
Probably he has "been
up against it down bis way and
has some unpleasant memories
the result it sometimes
produces. The largest msjoritiu
eror eiren ej the Democrats ot
this distriot, resulted from votes
cast by secret ballot. Were they
rascally eleotion officers in 1890,
Mr. Grassland, when Bryan had
13,000 majority in tho Gibraltar?
Mr. Grassland objects to tho
Bryan and Beckham qualifications.
Ho is ovidontly expooting help
from tho holtors. Does he believe
that tho men who fought
Bryan and Bookham Bhould nominate
the candidate for Congress?
Tnat is tho logical conclusion
from Iub' "kick." Let them nil
return, but first give us evidence
of good faith by a good, square

does all of us. Tho Press heartily

of tho two who supported Mr.
Grassland's resolution. He tells
tho committoo that tho election
officers in his county must bo

Grassland's resolution whioh
makes no provision for payment.
A littlo consistency should be
mixed up with these matters,
