EVERY WORD OF' IT TRUE. a
le louiis Minor commenting e
on the csti0 of the reorganisation

I), inocratie vitality does not ae
pend on winning. Its vaule lies in
its stantling ui) for individlualistic t
principl-. It it. for that rea-on. in
M!ined to iinfficiency in power. Otier e
corripts it etl hiS. It is a Iarty s
chiil v of protest :gainst rule. Wbhen
it toecimeIs iuler it becomies anach
rouistic and conflii'ts with its own
purpuscs. I)cDmocracy doesn't have
to sin to he utlseftl. It doesn't have
to get the attlhes to produce its pur
poses in fact. The cry "we can't
win" is Iase and cowardly. It is
the cry of the people who are not
lDemocrats but oligrarchs. The Dick
insans, \hlitnevs, (Gormans and their
kin want to win, that winning may
enable them to be a syndicate of
favorites of grovcrnment like the ftol
owers of Mr. McKiuley. 'he I)em
o(:racy mut not he reorganized to
'ain the o:lices. If reorganized at
all it Imuit be soliey to forward prign
cilples that are light. regardiless of
the otllices. So, without conceding
the right of the attitude of the Bry
unite l)niocracy, it must he said
tlhat :he iprlposial to cnt out that
branch of doctrine solely i)eCoiluse its
aIdvocuacy dtoes not give control of
spoils is a degrading and unworthy
:proposal. The I)emocracy is not
good when it wants to win. It is
only good and true anid useful to the
(world when it stawis for the principle
of equal tights to all, spe'ial favors
to noue. andl when it stands for that
doctrine in resistance of all tenpt:a
tion to forego it for the flesh pots.
Dennocracy is better in its later
rabidness than it ever could he as a
iparty whose isuts are "' vything for
offlice." Mr. Bras an is better thl:an
(ornlan. Mr. Altgeld is preferable
to the shifty Hill. 'l'hi' chief shliould
lie reorgauniz.ers of )Delo-raty :ire

porters of pirivilege. They are Re
piublicans in all but name.
Below we publish an outline of the
life of Col. Constantine Re:a. the
father of our eCteeuledl citizen, Capt.
1C. N. Rea. Col. I:,ra' life was
full of thrilling explicrience:s, and( his
;ervices to his c-in try are part and
Sparcel of the hiatery of two great
wars. He was a gallant soltlie'r In
.Ithe Mexlcan war, andt as q lually a
agallant one in the cause of the Con
feid racy. Captain Rea, his son,
seems to have inherited thie father's
- niilitary spirit, for lie too can boast
r of a hri,hlt and daring career as a
soliter of a lost, but unforgotten
cause. It is not necessary to re
tiount here his spledid services to the
S Southland; but in deference to his
military record, which we have
always adutired, despite political
diff-rences of opinionh, we publishi
this sketch of Col. lRea's life, a hich
our rea(lers will appreciate::
Constantine Ile:r wa's born in Mo
bile. Ala.. in the year 1825. His fhith.
e r; ard ulother died wlien lihe was quite
yorulg, and at the age of eight earts
hlie ran away from his guardian, and
vvwrked as a cabin buy on one of the
Altatama riversteam boats. He was
I veriy attentive and industrious, and
dually became steward on the same
steamer. lie held this position until
the conlllnelteinent of the Mexican war,
when lie resigned his position and en
listedt in ,ne of tihe Al'bama regiments,
and remained unti thie close of the
war, having participated in nearly
all ,f the hatitles Jof that memorable oc
ncasioif. After the fall of thie Mexican
fn)upitol and peace having belen de
elared, be returned with his company
to his nati\ve city and was discharged.
Soon after this memorable occaion,
he married his cousin, Miiss Margarette
Bragg, of Chottnw county, Ala., andu
Sat ornce engag:ed in the avocation of
farming for the short period of oine
year, which was brought suddenly to
aun unItxpecteit close by a perlsonal
diihl'ulty with a butsiiilns mlain of Iut

it out of the bounds of reaso to soppose
t that Li' woulld rt make eiemies. It
is here that one ot the most eyentful
e c'euts of his life begins.
SOne of his political otpponents chal

Siientl for thIat army. When the con
federate forces ei acnated that section
of country be sought active service,
aind upon" his own application was
autihorized to raise a commniand for the
war. Soon after the granling of his
application, we find hiin with a mili
tary cotmpatny, known as the "Con.
Rea Warrlors." organized and equip
ped in Lauderdale county, and which;
was also known as the Senlior'
hComipany of the 46th Mississippi Reg
tIIentl, then on and doing duty in
Vicksburg. Captain Rca'sability as a
Sactician was so0on knowtn, and he was
eter ined and valued very highly as a
irlitary man. While in the capacity
of it cimlpatny collmanler, he was de
tailedi otn the military court of the
r'liauns-Missis-ippi I)eparitment, then
sitting at Vicksburg, and was mIade

served with tdisti:rction in the battles of

Sing been paroled, the army was ord

- then promoted to the office of Major
e of his regimtent, and the military
court having been ordered to resume
business, he was detached once again
on this court as its judge advocate.
While dotg duty in this capacity
he Hass olicited by a large numbher of
fellow citizens at hoime to become a
- candidate against Ethel Barksdale for
Congress. Th''is solicilation was a stir
prise to hint, and as he anid Mr. Barks
i dale had been life-time political friends,
he was reluctant to accept the candi
dacy; but thebo pressure was great and
et he decided to nlake the race. Major
lea was badly handicapped to begin
lI with-he beiing a soldier and Major
SIBlarksdale being free to go and come
as it suited his fancy. However, the
race was made in a friendly spirit, and

FIVE MEN I)ROWNE n AT THE
Several acidents have occured at
the ,overnment works since revet
inug of the banks has been going omi
during the past ten or fifteen years,
and a great many men have lost their
lives by drowning, but the terrible
accident that happened about two
o'clock last Wednesday evening was
the worst yet to chronicle, when five
men met their death by drowning.
Last Wednesday evening it be
came necessary to move two sarges
partly loaded with rock, to another
location, for the purpose of using
them in sinking a large mattress.
They were swung out in the cur
rent, when the lines that were hold
ing them parted and they started
down the river. Six colored men,
henry Johnson, Henry Watson,
Cha Aey Morton, Frank Hlughens,
George Meyers and Adam Paul,
were sent out in a skiff to catch
them and bring them to bank if
possible, and for this work the skiff
had in it over twelve hundred
pounds of wire cable, besides two
heavy snatch blocks. The men
fastened one end of the cable to the
barges and the wire was being run
through the blocks, when in some
way the fail of the wire became foul
behind the cable, which pulled the
skiff with great force into the cross
current, and it was carried under
stern first. The men were thrown
in the water, and Hlenry Johnson.
llenry W:tson and Charley Morton
of Providence, Frank Hughes of
Vicksburg, and George Meyers of
Greenville lost their lives, Adam
Paul being the only one out of the
six who was saved. lie had on
large rubber boots and a gum suit,
and when he fell into the river he
pulled off the boots, which no doubt
1 saved his life. Paul says that as
soon as lie saw the line failed to
work he tried to get the men to
s throw the wire and blocks out of
a the skiff, but they had become so ex
cited by this time that they did not
know what they .were doing, when
n in another sacond the skiff was pull
ed under by the heavy \vcight of the
4 cable. He says that the skiff is
very large, and is made to hold
twenty men, and on Wednesday was
, not half loaded.
r None of the bodies have been re
y covered vet, but we understand that
8 those in charge of the works will find
them if possible.
y This v as a sad accident and we
a hope that no more will happen be.
r fore the works shut down.
