We are all Democrats.
Nothing good can come of crimina
tions and recriminations on the ac
count of the contests in the recent
primaries. We are all democrats,
and should inrgood faith accept the
results, and join hands in making the
administration a success, and thus
promoting public welfare. Some of
the most presistent taunting of those
who supported candidates who
defeated, comes from men and papers
who are thus signalizing their pre
sence in democratic ranks, after hav
ing deserted those ranks or secretly
aided our political enemies in our last
national contest. In the course of
the administration, steps will be
necessarily be taken which will not
only alienate some of those who were
supporters of the victors and failed
to receive something expected, but
also others who have nohting person
al at stake, but will be incensed at
something which if not done as they
wished would have incensed some one
else. The next administration will
start its course [with flaunting flags
and booming cannons and the plaudits
thourands, but it will not go very far
before it will have to solve difficulties
of various kinds. People will differ
to the correct mode of solution.
Errors will be occasionally made and
hostile feelings aroused. Men will
become as strong enlisted in favor of
this or that applicant for office as
they were on the governorship, and
be more resentful over defeat, be
cause they can lay that at the door
of one man. These and other con
siderations should warn all the friends
of the next administration against in
creasing its difficulties by intensify
ing and prolonging late differences.
The proposition advanced by one
of the papers of the majority side
that the Money and Vardaman forces
should keep up their organization
and carry the fight into the legisla
ture, making it an issue in its forma
tion, not likely be al tempted. If it
be attempted, most seriously at the
very start, and will do much towards
making its career failure. The Legis
lative ^department of the goverment
is declared by our constitution, and
necessarily so, as wholly independent
of the executive. The two are inde
pendent and coordinate. Intrusion
of either upon affairs intrusted to
the other is usurpation of auhority
which ought to be, and would be, re
sented. The attempt of Senator
Lamar's influence the legislature in
behalf of Gen.Walthall's succes shope
less before that legislature. The se
lection of senators has been deter
mined by the primaries. Its organi
zation cannot effect that result, and
for] a senator or governor t<> at
tempt to effect or control the organ
ization of the legislature, under ex
isting circumstances, would not only
be gratuitous intermeddling, but it
would have a boomerang effect. If
it succeeded, it would leave a strong
well organized opposition whose ranks
would received constant acceession,
and would in the end constitute a
majority. The last two state admin
istations commenced with a legisla
ture In full accord, but each ended
with a strut g legislative opposition,
controlling one or both branches.
We do not apprehend that such sug
gestions as those mentioned have
been, or will be, entertained by either
Senator Money or Maj. Vardaman.
We think each of these gentlemen
are too sensible to engage in any
such suicidal folly. The new legisla
ture is an able body of men and will
determine for themselves what is to
be done In their own bodies, unmov
ed by past issues, and looking alone
to the future.
Men who prate abont elevating
Judiciary and divorcing it from poli
tics and who, at the same time, be

preaont a pitably display of hypoc
On Monday, at Thomasville, Ga., S.
B. Mitchell, a negro, was being tried
before Judge Culpepper, upon a
charge of swindling other negroes by
representing himself as Senator
Hannah's agent, and thus collecting
money to secure the passage of the
bill to pension ex-slaves. There was
evidence plenty to sustain the charge.
In his defense Mitchell introduced a
newspaper containing a speech which
he had made denouncing Roosevelt in
terms, for appointing the negro Crum
as collector of the Charleston Port,
and on this evidence he rested his
defense, having no other. Judge
Culpepper dismissed the case against
Mitchell saying that the speech show
ed that the negro was all right.
Cussing Roosevelt is a paying business
to some people, but the mass of
negroes are the losers in all those
th'ngs with which Roosevelt is con
Because a man is registered does
not legalize his voting in the primary
election if he has not lived in the
county sufficiently long or is delin
quent for taxes. If either of t> ese
things are true then one crime was
committed by registering and addi
tional crime by voting. Every ille
gal vote cast in the primary was
wrong to every legal voter, because
every fraudulent vote cast off-set
some legal vote, and was thus
wrong to every legal voter. If
fraudulent voting was indulged in, in
our last primaries, it will be indulged
in ten fold as much if some body is
not caught and made an example of
before the next state primary.
Any Judge, at any time for any
reason has a right to resign; and any
honest and capable lawyer who is ap
pointed as his successor has a perfect
right to succession. If the motives
for the resignation of a judge are
base, this merely proves that he did
not resign too soon, but should
not operate against a worthy succes
sor, nor prevent the confirmation of
such a successor by the Senate, unless
it was proved that the appointee
personally unfit, which is all that has
been required in the past and is all
that should be required now.
In an interview this week, Maj.
Vardaman reitterates the statement
that no offices have been promised,
and that appointments should be
made without reference to anything
but the public welfare. Such being
the case, it is fair to assume that the
present kick at judicial resignation
does not come from him at all, but
from the friends of the wouldbe ap
plicants who wants to enter the king
dom throug services recently per
formed and whose value may be lost
by the efflux of time.
Some of those who boasted of the
next governor, at the earliest possi
ble moment, will keep out of office
appontees of the out-going governor,
profess to be indignant now because
some of the judges are resigning,
without waithing for the kicking out
process to begin.

A Serious Runaway.
The fright and running away of
a horse Wednesday morning came
near being a most serious affair, and
those seeing it cannot now account
for it not terminating with greater
injuries to Mrs. Wm. Turner the oc
cupant of the buggy, and to Mr.
Smith Turner her son who clung to
the horae until he ran against a
tree. It seems that Mr. and Mrs.
Wm. Turner, of one mile south/of
Black Hawk, wete returning from
Owens Wells and were met here by
their sons James and Smith with
buggies for their conveyance home,
Mr. Wm. Turner and son James start
ed on followed by Mrs. Turner and
son Smith. At the livery stable of
Mr. J. W. Morris Mr. Smith Turner
concluded to water his horse, as
there were no convenient places on
the road. He alighted from the
buggy his mother remaining in it,
took the bit from the horse's mouth
to give him a better chance to drink
when something flightened him and
he broke to run when Smith seized
him by the nose with one hand and
by the mane with the other and
clung to him until the horse ran into
a tree, the shock of which threw
Smith to the ground, horse and bug
gy going over him, and at the same
time hurling Mrs. Turner about thirty
feet from the buggy. Both were
terribly bruised besides which Mrs.
Turner had one arm broken near the
shoulder aud the wrist of the other
arm badly dislocated. Doctors Ken
Farr and Baker being near by at
once attended ihem and soon re
leived them of their suffering, al
though it may be weeks before Mrs.
Turner has again fully recovered.
Devoured By W orms.
Children often cry, not from pain
but from hunger, although fed
abundantly. Tito entire trouble
arises from inanition, their food is
not assimilated, but devoured by
worms. A few doses of White's

to cease crying and begin to thrive
at once, very much to the surprise
aud joy of the mother. 25c at 13. S
