K()L1CITEDW, THE SENIOR SENATOR What He Has to Say oft neeeee Politics. Ten- An Interesting and Important Extract from His Masterly Speeoh Delivered at Fayetteville. In the course of his speech deliver ed at Fayetteville Monday, Senator Isham Q. Hairis spoke as follows on State politics : .'In r spect to the condition of our State affairs I find much en use for serious regret. - , - - "Two years ago Gov. Buchanan was the President othe IState Alli ance. He had been a life long Dem ocrat. He aspired to the Democratic nomination for the high and honor able office of Governor of the State. At thatjtime there i, was not a de mand, a recommendation or a sug gestion of political policy announced by the Alliance which was inconsis tent with. the principles and policies which had been urged and advocat ed by the.Democratic party from the beginning of thejgovernment. "The Democratic party had no more reason to object to an Alliance man than it would have had to ob ject to a Democrat who was a Bap tist, Methodist, Presbyterian, a Free Mason or an OddFellow. "He was nominated and placed upon a sound Democratic platform by the convention, and elected by Democratic votes. "Subsequently the Alliance, or a portion of the Alliance element, held a national convention at Oeala, and, amongst other things, declared in favor of what are called, the tub treasury scheme, the land-loan scheme and the government owner ship of all railroads and telegraphs. "idle, vapory schemes. "These heresies, wholly inconsist ent with the cardinal principles and traditions of the Democratic party, and absolutely beyond and outside the constitutional powers of Con gress, and which, if entered upon by the Government, would.have.utterly destroyed its credit, involved it in immense and unnecessary expense, which could have been met only by increased and ruinous taxation upon the people, to say nothing of an ad ditional half-million or more of Fed eral office-holders that this policy In volved. "Of course the Democratic party could never commit itself to heretical doctrines such as these, or take any chances of being committed to them by any one of its nominees. "But, new and important as these questions were, the Governor was ab solutely silent and non committal on them and I do not know at this time whether he favors or opposes these measures. "In this condition of affairs Judge Turney, than whom there is no abler or truer Democrat or purer citizen, consented to accept the Democratic nomination for Governor if it was tendered to him. "Before the convention met Gov. Buchanan withdrew his name from the consideration of the Democratic convention, Judge Turney was nom inated and is the regularly chosen candidate of the party. But to the surprise of all true Democrats Gov. Buchanan declared himself an inde pendent candidate. THE CANDIDATE OF NO PARTY. "He is not a candidate of the Dem ocratic party ; he refused to allow its c invention even to consider him. He is not.the candidate of the Republi can party. Nor Is he the candidate of the Populite or Prohibition party He Is simply a citizen 'who turns his back upon all parties, defies all parties and undertakes to stab to the heart that party that has honored him by electing him Governor. "He runs upon bis own hook, and proposes, single handed and alone, to take charge of the affairs of the State and run them to suit himself, when he knows, or ought to know, that the only possible effect of his running must be to Increase the chances of electing a Republican Governor. His mistake was in refusing to let the public know what his position was upon questions so important as these, and which affect the public in terestsso materially. "STAND BY DEMOCRACY. "In conclusion, I appeal to every man who believes that Republican politics are wrong and hurtful to the general prosperity and welfare of the country: to every man who is In sympathy with Democratic princi pies and policies; to every Democrat who has stood side by side with me through the long years of the past in j fighting battles or equal rignrs, to rally lo the flag, stand shoulder to shoulder, assert the equal rights of freemen, vote the BtMlght Demo cratic ticket and the whole ticket from G rover Cleveland to the last name upon it, and when we have done that we can and will congratu late ourselves and the country upon the fact that we have again establish ed honest Democratic rule and have rrebuked' the wrongs and outrages that the country has endured ' under Republican misrule and class legisla tion for the last thirty years." A Cure for Cholera. There is no use of any one suffering with cholera when Chamberlain's colic, cholera and diarrhoea remedy can be procured. It will give relief in a few minutes ana cure in a sbort time, I have tried it and know. W. H.Clin ton, Helnietta, N. J. The epidemic at Helmetta was at first believed to be cholera, but subsequent investigation proved it to be a violent rorra or dys entery, almost as dangerous as cholera. This remedy is used there with great success. For sale by Owen & Moore, Druggists. - THE DEATH RSCCSD. Eugene Morris, of Hopkinsville, Dies in New York. Thos.

The People's Party Buried Clean Out of Sight. -1) Mitchell, the Democratic Candidate For Governor, Will Have a Majority of Fully 20,000. . - ' Glorious news comes from Florida and it is told as follows by a press dispatch: "Jacksonville, Oct. 6. The vote of the State is hardly .as heavy as was expected. This; is accounted for by the fact that the poll-tax require ments kept down the aggregate ol qualifications in alljparties. Up to 9 o'clock lustjnlght full returns had not been received from any one of the forty-five counties, but precinct votts furnished a good basis for calcula tion. Mitchell (Dem) hss carried the State by at least 2,000 majority. Raskin (People's prty) cannot by any possibility show up with more than 8,000 votes, which is 18,000 les than the Republicanvote Jbr Jour yeajg ago. White AtepuDiieanB, wnere tney voicu at uii. gtsiiciniijf supported the People's party.ticKet, but the negroes, st ranee to say, di vided the! votes betwden .Mitchell and Raskin. ' Reports from, about twenty-five of the ; counties declare that more negroesiJvoted the Demo cratic ticketlthan voted;the People's party ticket, and .this, too, without Intimidation of any kind.- "The result certainly dispels "all doubts, if any ever existed, as to the State being Democratic at, the No vember election. The same consid erations in the minds of the people wbich carried the State for Mitchell to-day will, also carry Cleveland through on November 8." Holleman-Bherron. Jas.

SOME SENSIBLE TALK. W. R. Harrington Speaks to Clarksville Colored People. Be Thinks the Members of His Eaoe Should Stick to the Whit People of the South. A speech was made at the court house lust night that deserves more than a passing mention It was de livered by W. R. Harrington, a col ored man trom'ithe Central Tennes see College, to a very ltrge crowd of members of his race, nis subject was the advancement of the negro race and their position in the coming cam paign. The substance of the speech was about as follows : The South is the homeof the ne-" gro. The white people can not gsi rid of the negro, neither can the ne gro get rid of the white man. This being the case their Interest is a com mon one. What benefits one race will benefit the other as well. The Northern Republican has all along been in the habit of riding the negro into office, but like Billy Mahone go ing to heaven, he always hitches bis horse on the outside. The negro must vote as an Independent citi- m a zen wno nas a pan in mourn ing the government. A negro should not vote for a man because he is simply a Republican, but pick out the best man, regardless of party and vote for him. If Judge Turney is the best man In the race for Gov ernor every negro In the State should vote for him. "I don't want," said the speaker, "social relations with the white people. I don't want to go to their houses and sleep in their beds. Our bf ds are good enough for me. I don't want to carry a white girl out driving. One of my own color and race suits me better. The South, I repent, is our home and our interests are coma on with those of the white people. It Is to our Inter est to stick to the while people of the 8outh. They are always our friends if we behave ourselves and stay In our places." , This is a mere outline of the speech and is given to show that there are many colored people in Clarksville who endorse every word of It, be cause tbey were there and applauded the speaker. Such speeches, free from vituperation, are commendable and will do much to beat the breach - be tween the two races that have been made by designing race agitators of the North. 1 ' Mile's Merve and layer Pills, ' Act on a new principle regulating the liver, stomach and bowels through the nerves.
