South American provinces are

in Central America war has boon

readers will remember, Emperor

throned and banished from that
country, and a provisional govern

of government could be regularly

war, and no conjecture can, at this
time, be made as to the result.
It is more than likely that the en

become embroiled in a general war,
and Mexico may be drawn into tho

Talk of Bloodshed.

William R. Moore, of Memphis,
ins. written the New York Press 'a
otter advocating the passage of tho

lutes. Mr. Moore is the propri

"1 am aware that United States
Senator Pugh and the lesser lights
of his party insist, thai if a law shall
ie passed which will undertake to
protect every lawfully qualified
American citizen in the casting of

great respect and earnestness, that

should be, and there nrust be 'es

every citizen not merely Repub

Mr. Moore before the war was
the most rampant secessionist and
since the close of the great strug

He is regarded as a rediculous
sort of character where he is best
known, and therefore his ravings,
to a great extent, go unnoticed.
But Mr. Moore is the proprietor
of a big dry goods house depend
ent on southern patronage for sup
port. If ho wants a force election
bill, even at the cost of bloods!!,
we doti't see how he can reasonably
claim this patronage.
We don't believe in the boycott
under any circumstances and don't
advise it, but if there are other
dry goods stores in Memphis as
good as that kept by Mr. Moore
we don't seo why the southern
trade should give him preference.
The Convention in Tennme.
Nutioiul Democrat.
We congratulate tho Democrats
of Tennessee on the result of their
State convention, and we congrat
ulate the farmers of Tennessee on
the fact thst they are such excel
lent Democrats. If it is the wish
of the Domocratic.farmersof every
State in the Union to nominate and
elect the Governor thereof, we shall
be pleased to see them carry out
their pfirpose, provided the farmof
who is nominated and elected is in
every case a Democrat There
should not be in any section of the
United Slates the slightest antago
nism bet ween the Democratic party
and the farmers, and if such antag
onism anywhere exists it can not
be the fault of the Democratic party.
It was more directly in the inter
est of the tanners than of any other
portion of our people that the Dem
ocratic party, under the leadership
of Mr. Cleveland, mado tho great
contest for 'tariff reform in 1888?
It is for the farmers, even more
than for anybody else, that this
contest has been carried thus far
and is to be continued hereafter.
Under these circumstances it can
not seem otherwise than unnatural
that farmers in any part of tho
country should lend assistance to
any movement that is hostilo to
the Democratic party. .For tho
sake of tarilf reform ; for the sake
of extension of the currency on
sound principles; for the sake of
honest government; for the defeat
of the Federal election bill - for all
these objects their fealty to the
Democratic organization should not
bo weakened or rendered doubtful.
If they believe that those objects
can be more readily attained by a
farmers organization co-operating
with the Democratic party and
squaring itself at all times with
the groat principles of the Demo
cratic party, by all means let them '
organize and push on tho good
