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

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.

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.
