The negro who sticks to his farm raises his family in the fear of God, respects the rights of his neighbors, obeys the laws of our country, and supports his church has no desire whatever for par ticipation in politics. He knows that the white men of the South will give him a square deal, and that the same laws that protect Ihe Anglo-Saxon will also protect the African; that his property rights will be respected, the fruits of his toil will receivo the same market prices as those ob tained by his white neighbors, and instead of being regarded as a menace to the South, he is one of the most important factors in its industrial upbuilding.—Jack son News. The death of Senator Allison of Iowa removes one of the old est and most honored of the the republican senators from the Un ited States senat. In point of ser vice he stood first in the history of the senate, having been in congress for more than forty years. He has been in the senate continuously since 1873. Gov. Cummins of Iowa has announcee his candidacy for the vacant sean in the senate cansed by the death of Senator Allison. Gov. Cummins was defeated by the late senator by a close vote for the senatorship in June and at the time it was said that only Senatoa Allison could have de feated him. With this feeling in the state ne should be an easy wihner in his next race. HOUSE AND LOT FOR SALE.
