WHAT WE NEED No people ever lived upon the earth that have had such oppor tunties as the American people. God lias given us a country unequaled, any where, in climate fertility and natural resources; and our fathers bequeathed to us a heritage of liberty, and armed us with the ballot so that we can at all times, protect our liber ties, and perpetuate free insti tutions for our children for all times. But these great blessings lay upon each and every one of a responsibility that we have no. moral, right to shirk or transfer to others. Our great need is for the people to be aroused to see actual conditions, as they are, and to learn that these conditions! are solely the result of their own apathy and prejudice; and that the causes that have produced these conditions will remain ini active, and augmenting force until the power of the people can be united at the ballot box to bring the government to a pure representative, democracy, under which there shall be special \ privilege granted to no man or : corporation; and no franchise granted to any man or body of men to exploit the people by < monopolizing a public function1 such as issuing money, the means: of communication transportation, etc. If the people will learn to use this power, of the ballot, made sacred by the blood of; our ancestors, it is not too late to make theirs a government, of the people, by the people, and; for the people. Brutus. In this issue appears the an nouncement of John VY. Mason as a candidate for the office of Circuit Cle, k. Mr. Mason is a bout 35 years old, was born and reared in this county and has been teaching in the public schools for ten or twelve years. He is well qualified for the office—is court eous, genial, honest and indust rious. If elected he will make one of the best officers the county has ever had. SALUTATORY. In coming before the people, soliciting their patronage, confi dence and good will under the new management, the Picayune has no boast to make of any great superiority. It will be the hon jst effort of the management to supply the geneaal public with a clean newspaper advocat ing such measures as we deem to be for the common good. This paper will advocate the j principles set forth in the plat-; form of the People’s Party, for the reason that this is in fact! the only political party before i the people that advocated the doctrine of Jefferson and the common people. From time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the con trary, certain functions and powers of the people as a whole, | have been considered as public, j and as belonging to the whole! people in their capacity as a gov ernment. Among these preroga tives of sovereignty, as the! courts call it, are the right to coin money; to make and execute the general laws; to levy taxes; to own and control the public highways; to organize the mili tia; and to do such other things as are considered to be too much , power to place in the hands of private corporations and individ uals. The People’s party is in favor of restoring these public func tions to the government. That is its creed. They believe that all of our ills as a nation can be directly traced to the giving of these public functions to private corporations, and that through these public functions wrong fully given to these corporations, the people have been plundered and the vast fortunes of the rich accumulated, The People’s party is the only political party that makes any pretentions of having such a creed. In contrast with this doctrine of the fathers, there is offered to the American people two other theories of government, i One of these is to delegate to private corporations the special privilege of exercising these public functions. This policy is the one under which we live now, and of which we complain. It has built up great fortunes for the privileged classes, at the 1 US expense ui cue muiuiuue. hold grows stronger year by year. These beneficiaries o f special privileges now form , themselves in still greater com- , hi nations and organizations for mutual defensive and offensive warfare. They are called by the name “Trusts.” This is the , doctrine of both the democratic and republican parties. Out of the evils of the above described system of government has grown the other theory of! government which is perhaps, just as bad. This system would take from), the individual the natural rights with which he has been endowed by his Creator, the right to own ’ and enjoy his home and accumu late property, and take all of the means of production and distrib ution from the individual. Thus turning every thing into the 1 public till. This is the doctrine | of the socialist. He comes after the other. If the other had not lived, he would never have been in existence. His is the misguid ed remedy for an actual wrong. We shall from time to time ap peal to our brethren to go with ! us on this political faith which is | so unquestionably in our common) j interest. This paper will not intentional- < ly offer any unnecessary offense. It will stand by its principles, ! and it may sometimes become necessary to say some things that will not be pleasant to its adversaries. Its policy will be to say those things in as soft a manner as th j exigencies of the circumstance, will allow. This paper will stand for civic righteousness. It will go forth ; with its mes? age of truth, as it understands it, to advocate hon est men for office; not only hon est men, but sober, capable, gen tlemen. Men who have some conception of civic righteousness themselves. It will advocate honest politics; honest elections; the rule of the majority; the enforcement of the law; the education of the masses and a high standard of political morals. Its politics and its religion be ing based on the same kind of principles, when it becomes nec essary, they will mix. With no enemies to punish, with ehairty and good-will for all it comes to you in brotherly love and good cheer and asks for a place in your home and your af fections. J. 0. A.

You j nay take the. entire ticket, and ( >ou will not find a single piece of j ihoddy. In the opinion of many, t is the best ticket that has ever! •een nominated in Nevada county jy any party. Every man is a Christian gen leman. There is not one in the ist that would under any circum stances use whiskey or money for rotes. They are all sober, hon ?st and competent. It is a ticket hat any christia i gentleman can ilford to vote without any com wnctions of his conscience.

In this issue of the paper we •resent the name of Garland j Starnes as a candidate for the! •dice of County Clerk. This oungmanis well qualified to I ill the office to which he aspires. | le is a Christian gentleman. For •eference to his good qualities j ,ve refer you to any one who j <nows Garland Starnes.

Andrews, as per his announcement in last week’s Picayune, has sold his paper, the oldest in the county, to the Pres cott Publishing Company a cor poration of men who will do their utmost to give the public an in teresting paper every week. Our watchword will be “Civic Righteousness.” We will stand unflinchingly for clean menin of fice justice to all temperance, and every other good cause that will promote the happiness of the home and the welfare of the county and state. The columns of the paper will be open to every honest, sensible person. Everything good will be liberally applauded and every thing bad will be fought with wild-cat tenacity. Intoxicating liquors in all its forms will be refused advertising space. Oui churches, schools, stores, industries 'and farming interests will have in us a true friend. The political policy of the pa per will not be Democratic. Jeff Davis, the leader of Democracy, so-called in this state, and its dictator, we regard as a stinch in the nostrils of honest men. A promise to vote for such a man is not binding, and to keep such a promise is a sin against the state and nation. This paper will be truly a Pop ulist paper with strong leaning 1 toward independence. While it | believes in the Poyuli.- t faith be i cause it is right and to the best i interest <>i the nation, state and county. yi t we would support a good and honest Democrat or Republican viy time before we would a i>a Populist. As for Brother Buck, we wish him much good and no harm, but we cannot follow the course heretofore laid out by him. He has time and again in thunder tones told of Republican corrup tion and grafting, and has never once attempted to sweep before the door of his own party al though it is waist deep in filth. We will stand by this creed if we perish, and if so it must be. as we expire, dear Buck, we will use the dying Gladiator’s words: Vale, Buck morituri to salutant. You will find the name of C. M, Buchanan in our announce ment columns, He is before the people of this county as a candi date for the office of county treasurer. Mr. Buchanan needs no introduction. He is known over this county as a Christian gentleman; honest and compet ent. The people of Nevada county are not afraid to trust Chess Buchanan with the keys of the treasury. The name of W. M. Munn ap pears in this paper as a candid ate for the office of county judge. What good thing can we say for Bill Munn that is not already known by the people of this county? He has been sheriff of this county for four years, from 1892 to 18915. He is honest. He would not stoop to a mean thing. He will be honest after the elect ion. He is competent. He is a credit to any county. He is loved by everybody. In this issue of the Picayune will be found the announcement of Elijah DeLaughter for state senator. Mr. DeLaughter needs no introduction to the voters of Nevada county; he started a poor boy and worked his way up. He has rubbed up against the rough edges of life and knows what it is to earn a living by the sweat of his face. By hard labor and diligent attention to his business he has accumulated a competence in the wa> of this world’s goods, as well as the respect and esteem of all of his neighbors and ac quaintances. We commend him to the voters of the 20th. sena torial district as being worthy of their confidence and suffrage. Yes, Old Ring is dead. He was once considered a good dog, but he is dead. Peace to his ashes. One good citizen said that he was a democrat, another one asked him what that was? Who can answer? Some philospher said that the democratic party is an organized appetite. Can any one give a better definition? It is the man who is willing to break away from the multitude, if necessary and stand by his conviction of right, that counts. Some people want to go with the crowd. Others want to go right whether the crowd goes: that way or not. Which are you? B. C. Purifoy is announced in j this paper as a candidate lor the office of Sheriff. Mr. Purifoy is a worthy gentleman. He is well qualified for the office. He is a| high toned, Christian gentleman. He makes friends wherever hej goes. ' in this issue of the Picayune is j published a notice of the times and places for the Populist can didates to speak to the voters ot Nevada county. They believe in i the old style of telling publicly' what they propose to do for the; people if elected. Go and hear them. In the announcement column, of this paper will be found the announcement of T. P. Callicott as a candidate for the office of representative. Mr. Callicott has been a resident of this state for several years; he moved here from the good old state of Tenn. essee where most of our fathers and mothers came from. He has served as state senator in that state and is a competent man. All who know himr here join in one voice in giving him praise. The announcement has been made and published extensively that Hon. Thomas p. Watson was going to make a speech at his home town in Thomson, Ga. and announce his return to the democratic party. Several days have now passed since the speech was made, and those same pa pers should by all means publish the speech. Why do they not publish the speech? There is not another man in the United States that can duplicate Tom Watson’s speeches, and they should by all means publish it. The fact is, that Thomas E. Watson is in the middle of the road.
