Official Organ of Attala County H. M. JOHNSON, Proprietor. Published Every Friday. $1 59 A TEAR. ESTABLISHED 1866. mm Mississippi, nqitember is 133s, The result of last week's elec tions in which theDemocratic par ty met with such an overwhelming defeat, except in Mississippi and Virginia, where the only opposi tion was the wild vagaries of the now defunct Fopulite party, shows very clearly to the mind of the ob servant reader that the large ma jority of the American people have learned their power and became more independent, and not so sub servient to party ties as they were a decade back; so that when the party in power fails from any cause to give them such legislation as they believe is needed for the good of the country they will bear it from power. We all know that the Democrat ic party was put in power in 1892 by an almost unprecedented ma jority on the demand of the people for tariff reform, which reform the Democratic parly was pledged to give, and which it would have giv en but for the treason of four Sen tors Brice, Gorman, McPherson, and Smith. The party's majority being so small in the Senate that those four men were able to pre vent the party from fulfilling its promisess and thereby thwarting the demands of the people, and the result was that when the party went before people in 1894 and 1S95 it was badly beaten nearly all along the line, and principally as we believe on account of the ac tion of the four Senators men tioned in defeating the tariff re form, and the failuro of the Presi dent and his gold bug allies to do justice to silver as a money. It is by no means certain that because the Republican party has been successful in the last two elections that it will elect its na tional ticket in 1896; because the Republican Congress which meets in December fails to give such leg. islation as the people believe is needed to bring them out of their present depressed condition they (the voters) will repeat in 1896, what they did in 1892, put the Re publicans out and again place the reins of government in the hands of the Democratic party. If the Democratic party nomi nates a good conservative western man 'upon a platiorm with no straddle or evasion on the finan cial question, but will promise in no uncertain way to do justice to silver as a money and complete the tariff reform as urged by Mr. Cleveland. It will stand a good chance to win the victory, as we do not believe that the Republi can Congress will do anything to gain the confidencs of the masses of the people while it is under the leadership of such men as Sher man and Reed; but will be as the Republican party has heretofore been subservient to monopolies, combines, trusts, and the financial policy of England. Let the Democratic party clear the deck for next yean battle kick out all traitors; nominate a ticket that will be in direct sympathy with the common people and will him the Tictory. K. W. Doyle, one of the editors of the Democrat-Sun published ia Macon, Miss., committed suicide in that place last Monday by tak ing morphine, No cause assigned. The Legislature of Kentucky is composed of sixty-eight Demo crats and one Democrat Populite and sixty-eight Republicans and one Alliance Republican, thus pro ducing a very interesting senatori al situation for that State. The Democrat Populite and the Alli ance Republican will likely prove to be two important persons when it comes to voting for Senator and it would not surprise us if some fi nancial dickering was not indulged in by some one who is anxious to hold the exalted office of U. S. Senator, and who does not care much by what means he gets there. Step9 are being taken by the United Confederate Associations to erect a suitable monument in Richmond, Va., to ex-President Jefferson Davis. Of course it will and should be successfully carried out. We see.it stated in the daily pa pers that in his annual message to Congress the President will rec ommend that the United States recognize the belligerent rights of Cuba in her struggle for independ ence. We hope he will. From the best information we can get there will be only two Pop ulites in the next Mississippi Leg islature one each from Choctaw and Marion. We suppose they will hold a caucus and nominate Burkitt for the United States Sen ate and adjourn sine die. Amende Honorable. Editor Alliance Vindicator: In an editorial in vour issue of Nov. Sth, headed "Un Salt River" 1 you say among other things, that the "Dems place as election com missioners! the most unscrupulous villain in the communitv where they think it will advance their political interests and then they ask and get the hearty support of the ministry and laymen of the various Christian churches. Some honorable exceptions, however." Are we among the honorable ex eeptions? Please reply at once. Yours reepectiullv, J. W. White, ) Election B. W. Ruunels. j Commis'rs Messrs. White and Runnels: Gentlemen--! did not know, till my attention was called to it, that I said anything about the election commissioners. It was clearly a misprint. I did not in tend any reference to you gentle men. Respectfully, W. P. Ratliff. JJcat 2 Items. The people have their crops about housed; two-thirds or three fourths of their cotton marketed; and every one seems to look pleas ant about their financial condition, although they had a very dark picture presented to them in the latter part of the summer and ear ly autumn. Things never turned out just as some parties predicted and a great many are rejoicing be cause it did not. So you see by this writing there is many glad faces in Beat 2. While I might with justice to all say that all faces do not look very well pleased, al though I have not heard one ex plain why they did not look pleased. Politics seem to be very dull in this locality; I never hear it men tioned unless a reformed Pop or a Democrat mentions it, and for one am glad, for it seems that hereto fore there was too much said about politics. I would suggest to the nominees in this Beat who look very sour when you meet them to go to the parties who they had spoken to to go on their bond and relieve them from that obligation. Their has been so many deaths in this locality recently I will not mention the partee. Good times is hear, and let her swing. I will close, a reformed POP.

Editor Star: Will you allow me space ia your paper to express my gratitude to my friends of Beat 3 for the fa vors shown me in the last cam paign. Although I was not suc cessful I am satisfied with the result, as the good old party came out victorious. Party success wa6 what I wanted and that is what we got. t The Populite party js a thing of the pait and is like unto the un fruitful tree that blooms out in the spring as a full blown rose; bat, alas! when harvest time came there was but little fruit gathered, consequently the tree was hewn down and cast into the outer dark ness and there was wailing and gnashing of tejth among our Pop ulite friends on the Oth of Novem ber. It is pretty tough, boys, but you all were warned to flee from the wrath that wa3 upon you, but you turned a deaf ear and would not hear, so you see where you have gone by following a few men who were trying to get their heads in the public crib. Now, the first time opportunity presents itself do as no doubt you have wished you had done, as the prodigal son did, arise and go to your father (the Democratic party) for he has killed the poor calf (the Populite party) and when you all get back it will be a time of jubilee with you.
