From Sunday's Paper.
The DESPATCH has been taken
to task by some of its best
friends, men for whose good
opinions we have the highest re
spect, for advocating the election
of Major Vardaman. As a pub
lic journal it is our duty to work
for what we conceive to be the
best interests of our people, po
litical and otherwise, and to ex
press our convictions upon all
questions affecting tl
and destiny of our p(
wel fare
pie. We
have never espoused the cause of
any man unless it was a consci
entious belief that he was worthy
of the office and no other consid
eration has ever mlluenced us in
shaping the policy of this paper.
We cannot agree, it is best for
the good of society that we
should not, for out of our differ-
ences the trutl
i w
be evolved
and the solution of every prob
lem pertaining to our govern
ment will be brought about.
Tup: DISPATCH stands for purity
iq public life, clean and honor
able methods in public office and
as long as we are serving our
fellowmau we expect to voice
these convictions.
Elsewhere we present a letter
from Jackson showing that the
opposition to Vardaman is at
tempting to concentrate itself in
the hope of securing his defeat.
The combination which his op
ponents admit is impracticable
and won't work, and such meth
ods are repugnant to the people
of this State in dealing with the
high and honorable office of Gov
ernor. Noel's followers are men
of conviction; men who scorn the
methods employed by Critz to
boost and bolster up his cam
paign and they would not unite
with such man to defeat anoth
er opponent. If any such com
bination were possible it would
be between the Vardaman and
Noel followers for they are to
gether in one thing, the love of
clean, fair and honorable meth
ods. If there should be a second
primary much of Noel's strength
;ill over the State would go to
Vardaman.
THE ISSUE JOINED.
With this issue the campaign
I may be said to have about ended
in Mississippi. It has been a re
i markable campaign, the first in
the State in which the people
I have had the opportunity to ex
press a voice in the selection of
! their officers. The people have
shown a proper appreciation of
this glorious privilege by mani
festing a lively interest in the
campaign and studying closely
the men and issues presented.
It has been remarkable in
j many things. It has witnessed
a good, strong man make a glori
ous fight upon the high plane of
sound democracy, preaching the
good doctrine of equal rights to
all: special privileges to none.
On the other hand, it has seen
Hanna methods employed, boodle
distributed, papers subsidized,
heelers and claquers employed
to travel the State to debauch
the public conscience and the
public thought with the base use
of money.
On the one hand it has seen an
incorruptible man, a man of un
blemished life and character,
sweep the State with his elo
quence advocating higher ideals,
purer standards of public life,
law, justice, truth and all that is
good and true in life.
It has seen this same man a
decade ahead of his fellowman
wrestling with the problem of
the time, preaching its solution;
taking stand with the foremost
thinkers and philosophers of his
day and appealing to the people
to accomplish its solution.
It has given to the State a good
strong man, a native of this
State who, by the force of his
own individuality, has overcome
every obstacle and who has forc
ed his way to the very front;
who come to Mississippi in her
hour of need; who is ready to
build up a healthy public senti
ment in this State which will not
condone wrong but which will
scourge offenders from public
office.
The political times have devel
oped the man; the opportunity
and the man have met. Missis
sippi's standard of public life
has degenerated; public office is
no longer a public trust: the ju
diciary is tainted with disreputa
ble politics. Our great institu
tions have been prostrated to
pay political debts. The people
are crying out against such
methods ami things. There
comes to them in their extremi
ty and distress Vardaman to re
claim Mississippi's honor and
Mississippi's glory. He is the
people's friend, strong, courage
ous, uncompromising in his
hatred of wrong, a believer in
right and truth and justice, a
man who scorns unfair methods,
who is committed to a policy and
who will accomplish Missisippi's
political rehabilitation. Against
such a man the powers that be
in the State have attempted to
stay the tide of sentiment in his
favor. Their efforts have but
added to the onward rush. He
is stronger to-day than he was
when he entered the campaign
or at any stage of the campaign
aud is sure to be elected.
That proud, prosperous, en
lightened, intelligent and refined
Lowndes recognizes and admires
Vardaman aud that she will give
him a tremenduous majority
Thursday there can be no doubt.
Vote against rings, slates and
combinations; vote against fac
tions, clans and politicians; vote
for the man who goes into the
Governor's office untrammeled
with promise and who is free to
administer the affairs of that
great trust solend singly for
the public. fri-
Vote for honesty and decency
and high-minded conduct in the
Governor's office. Vote for
Vardaman.
The leading men of the State
now admit Vardaman's election.
Don't forget Runnells.
THE OFFICIAL BALLOT.
The following is the official ballot for Thursday's prim
as prepared by Mr. Z. P. Landrum, the Secretary of the Comu
tee. The Dispatch publishes it in order that the people may
come familiar with it, that the work of marking their ballots n
Thursday may be facilitated. It will be observed that the bailol
in double column form. This is made necessary by the long .
names, it is impracticable to get all of the names on a single tick
