McLaurin, Mississippi's next Governor, spoke in the Court House here to a large and intelligent audience, compos ed of both parties, the Democrats predominating. In commencing his speech ho asked his hearers to pardon him for being a little per sonal to himself, as his opponent had tried to prejudice tho people against him on account of his be ing a lawyer. He said that he had been born and raised on a farm and made a regular farm hand un til he was about grown, studying to make himself a lawyer at night by the light of pine knots which he would take in his arms from the woods after plowing or hoeing all day: that Capt. Burkitt had stud ied hard and tried to make a law yer of himself, but for want of mental capacity he had to abandon the effort. He then took up State issues and showed by the official record that the Democratic party since it went into power in this State in 1S76, had managed the affairs of the State as economically, as it could be done and entirely in the interest of the whole people, and that Capt. Burkitt's charge that the Democratic administration had been more extravagant than that of the Radical administration was wholly without foundation and not the semblance of truth in it. And in this connection he showed by the record that if vote in the last which he was a Capt. Burkitt's legislature, of member, could have prevailed that there would not now be a common free school in the State, he ( Burkitt') having voted against the appropriation bill that included the appropriation to sustain the common free schools. He then showed that the national affairs the Democratic party, as a party, had been loyal and true to every interest of the whole people, and on the other hand he showed that what little power had been given the Populite3 in national affairs had been used in the intei ests of high protective tariff and monster trusts, stating in support of that fact that the son of Senator Peffer, the Moses of Populism and reform, so-called, is at this present time in the employ of the sugar trust, one of the most infamous monopolies in the world, at a sala ry of $2,500 per year. On the whole, Mr. McLaurin'9 speech was one of the finest we ever listened to, . being a plain statement of facts, appealing alone to the reason and good sense of his hearers and showing the hope lessness of the Populite cause, and urging all good Democrats to re main true to their, party and cor dially inviting all erring Democrats to return to the home of their fathers. From what we learn the speech has greatly strengthened the cause of Democracy in this county and' that our majority will be greater next Tuesday than it would kave been otherwise. ' . At the conclusion of Senator McLaurin's speech the following resolution, introduced by Mr. A. A. Armistead, was adopted with an old-fashioned Democratic whoop of approval: "Resolved, That the thanks of the people are hereby tendered Senator A. J. McLaurin for his visit here and for his able and masterful defense of the grand old Democratic party." Let every Democrat and good unprejudiced citizen that has the good of his country at heart go to the polls and cast his ballot against anarchism and populism. HOW IT WILL BE IN 1806. We give in advance of the elec tion next Tuesday the political status of Attala county after the first of January, 1896: Legislature in session Roll call (Senators will please answer to their names) 22ml District: J. C. Clark, present. Lower House Roll call (Rep resentatives will please answer to Ltheir names) Jas. F. McCool (prob ably speaker), present; John r Allen, present. March term, iS96, Circuit Court Court organized with his Honor C. H. Campbell on the bench, with W. S. Hill District Attorney, J. H. Sullivant Clerk, G. A. Thorn ton Sheriff, present. The court informs Mr. Thornton, the sheriff, that one juror is needed to com plete the pannel. The sheriff looks over the citizens present and calls out, "Come around here, Mr. Webb Hughes, and serve as a ju ror for the week. Private- citizen Hughes walks in and takes his seat in the jury box. Chancery Court, February term, 1896 Present, his Honor T. B. Graham presiding, J. II. llollingf worth clerk. "Call the docket, Mr. Clerk' First case Populite party vs. Republican party. Bill for divorce. The courtWhat ground is alleged in the bill for divorce?-' Attorney for plaintiff Misccgin'ation, if your honor please. Decree granted. Mr. T. S. Proctor, t?x assessor, submits his assessment books to the Board of Supervisors, which are found correct in every particu lar and are excepted. A. F. Temple, county treasurer, submits his report to the Board of Supervisors, which is found correct and approved. M. G. Campbell, superintendent of education, reports all schools in fine working order, including the one taught by Rev. T. J. Fowler. J. H. Kimbrough, county sur vcyor, busily engaged, never once sticking his jacob's staff in the wrong place. Mr Peter Kilpatrick meets Chairman Armistead and tells him that he is looking for Mr. Pace, the coroner. Chairman A asks "what business have you with the coroner?" Mr. K informs him that he wants an inquest held. Chair man A asks if the name of the corpse is known. "Oh, yes," says Mr. K. "it is Mr. Populite Party." "Well,'' says Chairman A, -"there is no use of holding an inquest over that corpse, for the law says that an inquest shall only be held when the party came to his death from some unknown cause, and everybody in Attala county knows that party was killed with Demo cratic ballots and killed so dead that it didn't even smell bad. Democrats of Attala, this is the last appeal we can make to you be fore the election. As you love your country, do your duty. Let nothing deter you from going to the polls next Tuesday and cast your vote for the entire Democrat ic ticket from Governor to Consta ble. You owe it to your God, your country and your families. The Democratic party has, beyond all doubt, a decided majority in this eounty and nothing can defeat us bat neglect on the part of Demo crats in going to the polls; so let every Democratic voter in Attala county put on the whole armor of determination, go to their voting precincts and vote for the party that will give you protection in your life, liberty and property and in the pursuit of happiness, and not for the party that has nothing, never did and never will have any thing to induce you to go with it and torsake tne party 01 your fathers.

In his futile attempt to detract votes from the Democratic nomi nee for Supt. of Education Mr. Fowler, if not the ' originator was the circulator of some foul reports over the county. These have all been denounced as infamously false and the originator or circula tor has not taken the trouble to get up the proof. Such a charge, when denounced and not proven, should re-act against Mr. Fowler; but at any rate Mat Campbell will not fall behind the ticket. We wish every Populite in Atta la county could have heard Mc Laurin's speech. If he could have voted the Populite ticket then he could, as Mr. Ratliff says, vote for a yellow dog if it was labeled 'Populite party." Here is the way the election re turns will show up: Beat 4 will offset Beat 5; Beat 2 and Beat 3 will both go Democratic,' and Beat i's Democratic majority of 300 will be a little short of . what the majority will be in the county. There never was a Populite who returned to the ranks of his Demo cratic friends but what he felt bet ter for the step. The man than votes the Popu lite ticket had better mark it deep and black, for the probabilities are that he will never have another chance. What do you vote for when you vote the Populite ticket? Did you ever think about it? Col. J. J. Williams, senior edi tor of the Grenada Sentinel and one of the ablest and editors in the State, dieJ in Grenada last Sunday night. Frank Burkitt says' he may emigrate to hades some day, but will never return to the Democratic party. This will be cheering news to the Democracy.-Natchez Dem ocrat. From the account of the Senato bia Issue of the Populite campaign in Tate county, the same must be a great burlesque. At the majority of the advertised places for speak ing there was none, for the reason that nobody appeared to be spoken to. Outside of a few couties this is the result of the Populite campaign all over the State. See our line ct gent's underwear. W.1L Potts Co.
