HON JOHN S BEARD
ADDRESSES DEMOCRATS
OF ESCAMBIA COUNTY
I
Pensacola Florida Oct 16 1908
To the Democratic Voters of Escam I
bla County
For the first time in some years
the republicans have nominated a
legislative ticket While the republi
can nominees are personally unob
jectionable and while we feel kind
ly toward them personally we must
consider what their election would
mean Who nominated them Whose
victory Tvill it be should they or
either of them by any chance be
elected I do not anticipate the elec
tion of either but every democrat
should consider the effect of such
an election
FIrstWho constitutes the vast
majority of the republican party in
this county
SecondWere a majority of those
who nominated the republican legis
lative ticket negroes or white men
ThirdThe negroes have register
ed and qualified In large numbers
and will of course vote the repub
lican ticket
Fourth While some white men
and democrats may vote for this re
publican legislative ticket the fact
is that a very large majority of those
who do vote for It will be negroes
and its election would not only be
a republican victory over democrats
but victory of the negro over the
white man
FifthIt would give such comfort
and encouragement that two years
from now we would see a full repub
lican ticket nominated from Escam
bla county and perhaps in the next
municipal election also and we all
Itriow what the vast majority of re
publicans in this county i
Sixth If elected they will be the
oilly republican In the legislature
and of course will excluded from
all caucuses except they hold one
for themselves which would be
equivalent to no representation for
this county in the House of Repre
sentatives of the Legislature
SeventhIt would be a step toward
the recurrence of the conditions of
carpetbag days from 1SGS to 1877
and those of us who are old enough
to remember will recall the expen
diture of time energy and in many
instances blood that it required to re
deem the state from those deplorable
conditions
It will not do to say that there is
no danger of such recurrence Prior
to 1868 if such conditions had been
Suggested the suggestion would
ave been ridiculed as impossible
of occurrence Those times may re
cur if we passively permit them by
not voting at all or actively assist
their recurrence by voting for repub
lican nominees
There Is a moral obligation upon
every democrat who participated In
the primary last spring to vote for
the nominee of that primary There
Is a patriotic obligation upon every
democrat to see that the legislative
ticket named by the republicans is I
not only defeated but so overwhelm
ingly defeated that there will be no
encouragement for them in the fu
ture to nominate a ticket
The personnel of the candidates Is
absolutely lost and merged in the
vaster issues Let our white demo
cratic primary do what it was intend
ed to do has always done and is now
doing In every county in the state
except Escambia viz determine the I
election of all nominees of the white
democratic primary
This is a great democatlc year
do not let Escambia found re
creant in her duty to the demands
of democracy patriotism and the
great Caucasian race
