Wonder what that :'n lie read Mr. zv's letter in last weeks issue have him i was simply a conference of Demo cratic leaders who favor bimetal lism, and its only purpose has been to aid in upbuilding that cause in the Democratic party. The address is certainly an able one and shows clearly and forcibly the absolute necessity for a bime tallic standard of silver and gold at the ratio of 16 to i, and the good to the country to flow therefrom. And in connection with the address we commend to our readers the four resolutions adopted therewith, which is the very substance of the whole conference, and eve ry silver Democrat who will learn them and retain them in his mind will always have and will ahvay be ready to give a good sufficient reason for the easier said wnen ue reaa .Mr. ea- In Choctaw county the Demo crats in their recent primary elec tion polled SSi votes, and the lVpulites in their primary polled So votes. Alas! Alas! Prop after prop is being knocked from under tiit Pops. Old Choctaw will elect her full Democratic ticket in No vember next, if the above figures mean anything. We are imformed that one of the Populite leaders said that by the loss of P. T. Kilpatric and J. L. Vuazey to the Populite party would gain said party twenty votes. Ques tion How many votes will said party gain by the loss of J. M. Turner and S. D. Kilpatrick. Come back horn ? all good Popu lites who are dissatisfied with pop-nlo-rcpublico fusion, and the old Democratic party cf Attala County will take all the chances on the election ratio of 2 to 20. The Brandon tragedy, of which we gave a full account last wxek, came to a sudden conclusion last Fridav bv three of the defendants, Marshall. Pox and Coleman, through an agreement between councrl for the State and defen dants and the relatives of the mur dered man, pleading guilty to the charge of murder and the three de fendants receiving a life sentence in the- penitentiary, where they arc now serving at hard labor for and during tl'.eir natural lives.

Our Populite friends who are still lingering in doubt, or who are open to conviction, will please read Mr. J. L. Veazy's letter in last week's issue of the Star and see the good honest reasons he gives for his change of heart and mind. Mr. Veazey is a good upright citizen and his opinions will have weigh'. Let the good work go on. Our columns are open. Next. ! aid, edited by the feerless orator W'.JJ Bryan, urges the nomination of a Southern man on the National Democratic ticket. It says: "For thirtv years it has been the custom I to selec: a presidentinl candidate for Vice-President, from the East, and the candidate j from the West, or that portion of the West lying East of the Missis- j sippi river." Adding: j "Why should this discrimination 1 continue? TI12 war is ovsr, the enmities aroused by civil strife have j disappeared, and those who wore j the gray are working shoulder to shoulder with those who wore the blue in the developement of our common country. In the great struggle now in progress distin guished sons of the South are do ing yeoman's service for the mon ey of the constitution. Why should they bear the burden of the fight and yet be denied the privilege of receiving honors at the hands of of their countrymen? "Among the older men of the South, Senator Morgan, of Alaba ma; Senator Biackborn, of Ken tucky. Senator McLaurin, of Mis sissippi: and Senator Daniels, cf Virginia, are especially wcr hy of consideration. They are ail men of high standing, great ability, and unquestioned devotion to the cause of bimetallism." And we will add, to every other cause that i.ill uphold and sustain the honor and integrity of the whole Union. Then give us a Western man for president and one of the above named, or some other good Southern man, for Vice-President and Democracy will win in iSg5 We mean our Drugs, Wail Paper, Mixej Paints, New Crop Landreth & Son's Turn Unapproachable in purity Seed, 1895 prices We make Special I' or ton Days.

It having beeri intimated that the Brandon murderers had plead guilty and accepted a life sentence with the understanding that they would be pardoned by our next governor, who had been their coun- ger, from Mr. McLaurin's own lips, which, we hope, will satisfy the most suspicious mind that our nominee would not be guilty of such a gross act of injustice to the j people who are going to honorhim with the highest office in their gift.
