"Up to the time of his nomina?
tion for congress the party was
defeated, disorganized, demor?
alised, Tho organization which
j he effected has put new life into
the situation, heartened every
Democrat, and resulted in tho
tiue showing made at the recent

tinued Mr. Williams, "tli.u the
Democrats of the Ninth are as
unanimous in their choice of
Mr. Stuart for governor ttb they
were i m Mnrtin and Swanson

Baying II great deal. No one
speaks put there of a possibility
of Iiis defeat, and I am satisfied
that he could poll ninety of ov?
ary 100 votes east, no matter
who might he bis oppose iit."
Personally, Mr, Williams
thinks tlie liest solution of the

to put .Smyth county into the
Fifth district, taking it from

SOUTH VS. THE WEST
Seattle, Wash., Dec. 15.?
The "Hack Home" movement
to the South is much discussed
in this city and in all the cities
and towns of the Far West.
Everywhere in the dubs,
hotels and railroad trains you
hear argument about it. It is
the general opinion (hat the
movement will turn a tide of
home seekers towards the
South which heretofore, lias
overrun the West and [inured
over into Canada. A newly
completed Western railroad is
trying to draw upon the con?
gestion of homeseekers on the
Pacific const for settlers to go
upon the barren territory along
its lines in Idaho, Montana ami
sections east of here,
Western Commercial Clubs,
although they detain the South?
ern "Rack Home" movement,
are nevertheless redoubling
their efforts to continue the
movement of this W es torn
country. The high officials of
railroads Hay nothing about it,
but from subordinate, it is
learned that they are seeking
to develop a plan to counteract
the "Back Homo" call and the,
demoralising effect it is having;
on Immigration from the South.
