Done at the elly of Nann villa by authority of the Hl.ate Democratic Executive Commit tee, the .'111 day of April, 1MI0. Titos. L. Williams, Ch'in. J. 1). McLlN, Sec'y. Mr. Williams being temporarily absent, Mr. (Savage xvm called to the chair, when Mr. Crunk offered the following resolution, which was adopted : Jtewolved, That thin committee recommend thorough organization of the Democratic party in all the coun ties of the State, and that conven tions or primary elections beheld wherever necessary to secure the Hucccss of the party. THE FIGHT 18 ON. The gubernatorial campaign is growing hot and candidates are be ing so badly disfigured in the con test that their own kinsfolk don't know them. The American com menced heaping coals of fire on (!ousin J civ's buck. In fact, after passing through the American's threshing nuichine, there was no Jemocracy left in Cousin Jere. lie proved to be simply a batch of stocks and bonds, goals and swine, Shet land ponies and spotted cows. Now, Dune. Cooper, of the Her ald, bus returned to his post, and Dune, knows a few things about Tennessee politics, and the way he does go for your Uncle Josiah, the American's upper case candidate, is eiiougu to give an ordinary Demo crat cold rigors. The Herald quotes from the Democrat, then edited by Mr. Carniack (now editor of the American), which paper was at the time owned principally by W. M. Duncan and Spiral Hill, charging that N. Haxter, .Jr., John 1. Williams. A. M. Shook and others, principal directors in the Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company, were the pen itentiary lesess and owners of the American. The Herald, after sum ing up the proof from the Democrat, charges that these same men, Dun can A- Co., are now prominent direc tors in the T. C. I. oV 11. It. Co., prin cipal owners and directors in the American, held the penitentiary lease and are running the American to control Tennessee politics, Josiah Patterson being their candidate for (Iovernor. The Herald also holds up the beauties of Tennessee Democracy, directed by Thos. C. I'latt, Republican "boss'' in Mew York, and president of the Tennessee Coal & Iron Co., which also "embraces among its of llcers Russell A. Alger, grand gyas cutus of the (fraud Army robbers," through the American, organ of the Tennessee Coal A- Iron Co." Really, is it not time that Tennes see 1 emocracy was purging itself of such influences, by selecting a clean man, against whom no such charges can be preferred'.' It will be remem bered that it required extraordinary eM'iiits on tlii1 part of prominent Democrats to pull (Jov. Taylor through in his last election, and but for Cleveland on the ticket they could not have succeeded, and now if a still moreodiouscaudidate is forced upon the people he will have no Cleveland to pull him through. PLENTY OF GOJD DEMOCRATS. The American, discussing the selec tion of a candidate for governor, very truly says : Men whose motives are unques tionable are not so rare that we need make public office a grindstone for I private axe-;. ;) iu woods, the fields, the tow ns and 1 lie cities there are able, honet and genuine Demo crats uppercase Democrats DKM OCRATS! Therefore there need he no mistake. There need l.e no wast ing of parly honors and public ollice on men who have heroine Democrats for just this tripand train who have j bought an excursion ticket on the j Democratic Limited for a little polit-1 leal pleasure trip. This is till good, soimdfadvicc, and we wound a Id that Democrats should remember that they are not under any obligations to take a man because of his bra-is and candor in declaring he want- the otlice for its honors, or becau-e lie has been in long training and doing volunteer service to place the parly under obligations. They should inquire w ho the man has been training w ith, w ho are his associates ami groomers, and whose axes he wants to grind. The Trenton Democrat says 1. J. Walker, of Seventh di-triet, (iibson county, who Is in his ninety-ninth year, cultivated ten acres in com and six acres In cotton last year, the smallest acreage be has rais,,l since he was a grown man. "! think Mr. Walker would make a ripe candidate and might hold up long enough to run for (Iovernor. , High tariff is indeed in a bad way, and must suffer in the hands of its friends. ; The Republicans have come to a hand-to-hand fight over this war infant which they Jiave been nursing over twenty years. The leaders may come to a settlement of their differences in congress for the sake of party ends, but the settle ment is sure to hurt several classes in the east and as many in the west, dividing their ranks, and McKin ley's stupidity in scheming to gain favor where the money power and votes are strongest, has led him to blunder at every step. The fight is up now over tax on hides and Suma tra tobacco, and cigar makers of the east and cattle raisers ol the west are raising a mighty howl. Glass, crock ery, tin-plate, wool and other articles will have to stand the same racket. The Morristown Gazette Is now coming to us a very sprightly.bright faeed daily. The Weekly Gazette has been a regular visitor to our ex change for over twenty years, and always a good paper It is gratify, ing to note this evidence of prosper ity on.the part of an old friend, whose visits will be all the more welcome. The Gazette is moving apace with a live, growing city. With a tariff on eggs, the Ameri can rooster will crow half an hour earlier than usual, thus giving the honest farmer more time for his day's work. Courier Journal. Yes, and the hens will get around livelier, and cackle oftenerand more cheerfully in their efforts to supply the home market. Two hundred farms in protected New Jersey have just been sold to satisfy mortgages. Doubtless the owners failed for lack of fresh seed from the agricultural department. If not, then, as I'rof. Dodge puts it, they worked themselves to death. Senator Deck has no idea of resign ing on account of ill health, as re ported. His health is improving. Senator Deck's retirement would be a great loss to the Democracy and the country. "The demand for another insane asylum in the State is imperative," says the Louisville Post. That is just the ease every time a new Ken tucky Legislature meets. Judge Peffer Leading Kansas Farmers. Many of our old citizens remem ber Judge W. A. Peffer, who lived in Clarksville during, and several years after the war, in reconstruction times and wrote a boon entitled "The Carpetbagger." The lawyers all re member "The Carpetbagger." This is the man who is leading the Kan sas farmers and the last one of them is falling into line, and he is the man they are talking about for United States Senator to succeed Ingalls. Judge I'effer iias been interviewed by the St. Louis Republic regarding the political action of the Alliance and says, among many other things : They want more money in circula tion. They want the government to issue all the money directly, and get it to t lie people without the interven tion of interest-Rearing agencies; they want money made in plenty and put out at a low rate of interest. They want transportation controlled by the government in the public interest so it may be cheap, certain, safe and equal in its butdens and benefits. They want a readjust ment of our land system, that all the public lands may lie gathered in speedily anil disposed of to settlers under the homestead law. They want alien ownership lands abolished in some equitable way. In short the Alliance wants such legislation as will equalize the bur dens and benefits of government, nf fordingequal protection to all the citi zens, destroying the influence of the money power, suppressing combina tions against freedom of trade, and placing the debtor on terms equal with bis creditor The Alliance members will vote only for persons friendly to their demands. In Man and Womans Own Neglect Of themselves will he found original cause, in nine cases out, cf ten, of all the bodily ailments from which they may sutler. A tired feeling or slight indis position is treated indifferently and the body left to work out its own restora tion to health, minor ailments being looked on as trilles. This is the great mistake, and one which often causes long spells of sickness.
