Col. II. Clay King died in the
penitentiary at Nashvillo last Thurs
day, lie was serving a life sentence
for the murder of Poston, an emi
nent lawyer of Memphis, who was
shot down on the street's of that
city in-March, 1891. After atrial
lasting over a month, Kiug was
sentenced to death. The case was
carried to the Supreme Court, who
sustained the verdict below. A
powerful movement was started by
defendant's family and friends to
secure clemency, which finally
succeeded, Gov. John P. Buchanan
commuting the death sentence to
Republic in Danger.
Congreesman M. K. Patterson
has returned iroiu Washington and
will remain at home until after the
holidays. To a Commercial Ap
peal reporter, he jrave his views
concerning the republican party,
and his words of warning, eloquent
uttered, should be read by all. Mr
"The fearful debauchery of the
national conscience by the republi
can party is the most ominous thins
in the life of this nation and a fact
which should be contemplated with
the greatest measure of alarm
Vo be convinced of this truth one
has to but mingle with the Republi
can leaders in Washington.
Never before in the history of the
republic has there been such wanton
looseness in Republican political
thought, such absolute disregard of
means and methods for the accom
plishment of given ends. If the
rule of Republican power is not
stopped the consequences will be
disastrous to American institutions
I say deliberately and after careful
reflection that, if the Democratic
party never elected another presi
dent the fact that it is the party of
the people and embodies their ideas
of a free government is sufficient to
warrant-its continued existence."
Going into detail Congressman
Patterson said that it was a fact
beyond dispute that the Republican
party with its unmistakable princi
ples, that the end justified the means
had committed the greatest assaults
on the national conscience since the
republic was given birth. He said
that today in the congress of the
United States might be found legis
lators who concurred with the presi
dent in the infamous principle that
might makes right, men who were
ready and willing to defend the
actions of an imperialistic govern
ment against all reasonable and
'One has to but read and ponder
the recent message of a Republican
president to the congress of the
nation and but to reflect on the fact
that his opinions are upheld by men
chosen to represent a free people to
understand the danger that threatens
the nation. The danger may not
be immediate, but it exists never
theless, and its ominous shadow" is
cast far before the real substance.
More and more am I impressed with
the awful fact that the party in
power is possessed of the single
with the Colombian government re
course was outlined with Nicaragua.
This was as specific . as anything
! could be. In the Spooner act this
j country recognized the sovereignty
' of the Colombian government and
solemnly and legally pledged itself
to treat with that power until it
should be clearly established that a
treaty was impossible when it was
to deal dirCctly with Nicaragua.
What have w? A president who
declares the sovereignly of a re
bellious state against the sovereign
ty of a republic long before re
cognized, and with whom this nation
was lawfully. pledged to treat. It is
not for us to question why Colom-j
bia refused to treat with the
Unitid States any more than
man has a lawful ri-ht to
the motives that actuate a fellow
man for declining to consummate a
trade. But in his message the
president implies that it was best
for the American nation, from the
standpoint of commercial, relations
and future business to recognize the
sovereignty of Panama. Clearly
the motive -underlying this pro
nouncement was that it was best for
the United Slates to recognize the
Panama government for the reason
th it the dollars and cents involved
justified the recognition. The idea
of such a thing is revolting in the
light .of honored precedents and
years of impressed principles of
international government. The
action of the Republican adminisj
tration toward ColombH is enough
to justify the alarm which I have
"Another example of Republican
legislation for the favored few as
against interests of the masses is the
I act that the present congress will
not interfere with the obnoxioue
tariff schedules. Not long ago S.
E. Paine, of New York, chairman
of the house committee on ways
and means, declared thai the Re
publicans would not interfere with
the tariff on the eve of-a presiden
tial election. "We tried that once
and got defeated," he declared,
'and we shall not commit the fo!l
again." Hence there is no ground
for believing that the tariff as we
have it today will be taken up
during the session of the present
congress. The Republicans are
afraid of the vote of the manu
facturers of the East.
In view ot these things Congress
man Patterson took an unpleasant
view of the future.
"I am afraid to think whether we
are drifting," be continued. "Under
the political leadership of a party
that sacrifices all that we have been
trught to revere from our earliest
school days, I tremble as 1 look
into the future under such a regime.
Tin; spirit of republicanism under
which we live is so rampant and de
fiant of established precedents , and
traditions that it is permeating our
institutions and changing our old
tune complexion. The only hope
that I can see lies in the supremacy
of the Democratic party. It is the
party of the people. There is no
doubt about it. Its leaders may go
astray for a short time, but never
theless the party founded upon the
principle of the greatest good to
the greatest number. The spirit o
Democracy is the only one that in
stills a wholesome and strengthen
ing national life. This can not be
questioned. The Republican party
may bring temporary success to

tection atiorded certain mauufactur
