McAlister Withdraws. Last Friday the following statement was handed to the State press for pub lication: "When I entered the contest for the Democratic nomination for the office of United States Senator I confidently be lieved and was assured that this no mi nation would be made by a reunited Democracy in thorough accord with the spirit of the harmony convention that assembled in Nashville in May last, However, during the last ten days or more, with my friends I have been combatting a persistent effort that was then and is still being made to induce Democrats to refrain from voting in that primary. "I have at length realized that such warfare on this primary has succeeded in defeating the spirit of the harmony convention and that many Democrats will not vote therein or be bound by the result. I regret that such condition ex ists, but realizing its existence I see no alternative but for me to withdraw from the contest. Respectfully, "W. K. McAlister." Teddy on John Brown. A recent editorial article in the Ban ner gave some reasons why Theodore Roosevelt's appeal for Southern votes should meet resentment from those who stand by Southern tradition and are ini bued with a true regard for their native section in its present status and past history. Another reason is furnished in the following excerpt from the famous speech Mr. Roosevelt made at Osawato mie, Kan., in 1910. This speech was characterized by its very radical utterances, but the occasion was a celebration in honor of old John Brown, . the Kansas cut-throat, who at tempted to instigate a bloody slave in surrection for the indiscriminate murder of white people in Virginia, and Col. Roosevelt in the course of his speech j eulogized John Brown and praised his work. ' j The following is from the' authentic copy of the speech published by Col. Roosevelt in the Outlook Sept. 1, 1910 John Brown stands to -us now as rep- resenting the men and the generations who rendered the greatest service ever rendered to this counery. ' He stood for heroic valor, grim energy, fierce fidelity to high ideals. A great debt is owed to John Brown, because he is one of the most striking figures in the mighty struggle which was to keep us forever a free and united nation, which was to secure the continuance of the most tre mendous Democratic experiment ever tried. He did much in his life, and more in his death; lie embodied inspi ration of the men of his generation; his fate furnished the theme of the song which most stirred the uearts oi the soldiers. John Brown's work was brought to completion and made perfect by the men who bore aloft, the banner of the Union during the foiir terrible years that intervened between Sumpter and Appomattox. Of that generation of men to whom we owe so much, the man to whom we owe most is, of course, Lincoln. alor, energy, disinteredness, idealism, were all his. In meeting the problems of to-day let us profit by and welcome and co-operate with the John Browns; but let us also remember that the problems can really be solved only if we approach them in the spirit of Abraham Lincoln. This excerpt from Col. Roosevelt's speech was sent to the Banner by an ex-Con federate soldier, who is also a minister of the gospel and one of the most respited, cultivated and intelli gent citizens of Nashville. In a letter accompanying the article he said: I feel that when Mr. Roosevelt asks Southern votes these sentiments of his should be made known. Next to my religion is my love of the South and with all my soul I believe that she was right in resisting to the utmost the most brutal, savage and unjustifiable invasion that was ever undertaken. The senti ments expressen by Mr. Roosevelt are fiendish. He glorifies a man who tried to stir up the slaves to massacre the white people of the South. He justifies the utterly lawless attempt of John Brown to carry out his plans, and he declares that the spirit of the North in the war was truly represented by the old cut-throat. When Secretary of War Root, in McKinley's Cabinet, had the bodies of Brown's companions, who had been hung by Virginia, disinterred and buried with the honors of war; when McKinley stood with uncovered head and tearful eyes, while New York dedi cated John Brown's home as a shrine of patriotism, I felt it was the height of insult to the South; but this of Roosevelt goes beyond in deliberate malignity. It shows that he would not hesitate to trample all law under his feet to carry out his plans; as he stole Panama, as he has never hesitated to violate law and try to lie out of it. I can t see how any Southerner could vote for him. The Banner is requested to withhold the name of the writer because, as a minister, he doesn't wish to be known n politics, though he adds he alwavs votes his conscientious convictions. Cer tainly his views in this respect are those of his contemporaries among the men of the South who remember the days prior to 1S61. If there has been any change of sentiment on the part of the younger South and there can be no shadow of doubt cast on the loyalty of the South of to-day the present gen eration is no more prepared than that of 1861 to accept John Brown as a type of "heroic valor," or to vote for a man who now eulogizes him and commends his deeds. The South can understand and admire Lincoln, but it will never accept the canonization of John Brown, the butcher. Col. Roosevelt in this Osawatomie speech spoke of the song Brown's "fate furnished, "and his "inspiration." This recalls his twice-uttered rhythmical dec laration at Chicago, We stand at Armageddon, and we battle for the Lord." That was a paraphase of Mrs. Julia Ward Howe's "Battle Hvmn of the Republic," that the Colonel, while President, urged should be adopted as the national anthem, and it is sung to the tune "John Brown's Body." Evi dently the Colonel wished to make the old tune, with all of its hateful associ ation, the inspiration of his present campaign; but surely no suggestion of John Brown sentiment works anyinspl NEWS NOTES.
