AH these things because of the sin of tho State-widers in not entering the Democratic caucus. The State-wider are bolters, squaws, traitors, anything, in the eyes of the Governor. Now let's see about this great tinpar- ible siu. Who were Palmer and ner in 1S96 and who were the fol- wers of these notorious traitors, who ot only walked out of a national Dem- Icratic convention but went huckstering xjut the country like a couple of Mountebanks. They went to the con- ention and went instructed to support le nominees, and yet they left it and (ent out and started a campaign for the werthrow of Democracy. Was ever more contemptible characters than Ju das Iscariot or Benedict Arnold. Tal mer and Buckner made it impossible for Democratic victory ever again in this country, and who were the follow ers of these counterfeits. ' Did the Governor or any of his coterie of political allies ever refuse to vote for the nominees of the national Democrat ic conventions. Did he or any of his friends ever lend aid to that miserable pnir who sold themselves body and soul to the Republican party and destroyed the hopes of Democracy in this country Who is tin man who see Dogs as Deputies. For the first time in the history of Missouri two hunting dogs have been regularly designated as deputies and attached to the office ofthe State Game and Fish Commissioner. In a letter b sued by Jese A.

We publish in full this week the call of the State Democratic Executive Com mittee so that tho readers may all fa miliarize themselves with its contents. It is a remarkable document In brief it simply calls a county unit primary to be held in all the counties in the State Juno 4 to select party nominees for Gov ernor, United States Senator, Supremo Judges, Judges Court of Civil Appeals, Comptroller, , Treasurer and Railroad Commissioner, every branch of which is planned,, conducted and carried out, by tho State committee. Tho State com mittee appoints a sub-committee which in turn appoints tho 1icr, judges and clerks for each county to hold the elec tion. The State sub-committee also ap points a committee of three in each county to receive tho returns of election and to appoint delegates to tho State con vention upon which devolves the selec tion of the Democratic nominees. AH this is justified because the State wide Democrats didn't allow themselves to be swallowed up in the Democratic caucus last year, and lot Patterson con trol. In other words Patterson is deter mined by fair means or foul,- arbiter.- and unprecedented methods, to rule and control the Stato of Tennessee. All those who do not agree with him are ' condemned to any kind of visitation he can punish them with. The State Democratic Executive Com niitteo is composed of Patterson mem bers principally, twenty-ono in number, five of theso being State-widers. - So, therefore, it can be seen that the Stale committee, a Patterson commit tee, is in absolute control and self-con stituted to namo the ticket, matters' not what the returns are in the primary. Instead of allowing tho counties to vote and select their own delegates the State committee selects these delegates to the State convention. Tho people are not entrusted with anything. They have no assurance at all except such as the Slate Committee may bo disposed to extend that their votes will bo recorded as cast. Now come the friends of tho Gover nor stating that the primary law recent ly declared unconstitutional embraced the same character of a onc-si'ded, arbi trary call that the county committees were empowered with authority to name lclegates to the Stato convention, there fore they are justified in doing the same kind of dirty work that has been con demned by the Supreme Court. Because the Stato committee sees corruption iuthe intentions of the State widers it takes to itself the liberty of making these same corrupt methods sole executor of the State r " I . 1 . . i mi 1 i . 1 -t who nttrihnt to l,im..,f tl.o rmthnr r,f 11,0 antl-in JUHCtlon Dill atlU 8UIC1 1110 1- its "principles and its destiny. publican party's promise should be kept.

The Commercial has always observed its duty as a Democrat, and maintained ita standard without the interference of dictation. This has not been done with out some trouble and without having to decline the baits and overtures of politicians. The Commercial has uni formly declined tho offer of so many dollars for its space in the support of certain political candidates and policies. It has steered clear of cliques, while political orators canvassed tho county undertaking to brand it as a clique or gan. it was not so many years ago that Sir John H. McDowell tried to preach us as a clique organ to the peo pie of this county. The Commercial withstood that fusilade and emerged from it victoriously with tho indorse merit of the county Democracy. It stands to-day with its escutcheon un tenance, wnoso pay was recently in creased, and the trainmen, conductors and telegraph operators, whose demands arc now under consideration.

A similar measure has spirit and character that has made it "the "been ordered favorably reported by the people's paper. They call the action of the State Democratic Executive Committee simi lar to the electoral college plan, which is the established method of electing a President. The electors are named by tho people whom they represent and not by the National Democratic Execu tive Committee. The Patterson primary takes the counties as a unit in the same manner that the States are voted as a unit in Presidential elections, but takes away from the people the right to elect their delegates and places it in the State committee. The plans are therefore very far apart, the electoral college plan being as near as possible Democratic, while tho Patterson plan is as near un democratic as possible. Committee on the Election of President, Vice President and Members of Con gress, but Chairman Gaines has not yet presented the report.. If the Patterson State committee had laid aside its animosity and acted with discretion and diplomacy it would have left it with the people to elect their del egates to the Suite convention in con- unction with the unit plan, and then it might have gone before the same peo ple with some degree of confidence in the censure of State-wide Democrats for not entering the caucus. The State-widers captured the Sulli van convention and the Coxites bolted. The Patterson people had better take their medicine if they want regularity.
