A NOT HICK OPPORTIN1TY.
Tennessee ha justified the hopes
of the country, and Tennesseans
have given the Democratic Party
another opportunity to regain its
fading prestige and do sometMng to
entitle it to further confidence.
The Democrats have not. been
satisfied of late years with the ad
ministration of State alfairs. There
has been too much of partisanship,
too much of cheap politics, too much
of extravagance, too little of but-l
nens methods. The country wants
more business and less politics in
their laws. The people want laws
that will protect them againt the
robbe" rates of soulless corporations ;
and laws that will protect corpora
tions -in their rights against the
greed of mercenary, heartless men;
laws that will give equal and exact
justice to all, special privileges to
none. They are tired of so much
talk on this line, and are clamorous
for a fulfillment of these oft re
It is a fact that Tennessee has
been extravagantly run ; that there
are too many feeders at the public
crib; too many hangers on at the
Rtate Capitol ; too many rings, too
much of bossism, too much machine
work. Too many bad laws have
been made; too many good laws
have been partially executed.
The people have suffered and en
dured and partially borne these
evils for a loner time in the name
ard for the sake pf .their party, but
with weakening spirit and a failing
loyalty until Tennessee had become
indeed and in fact a doubtful State.
It was at this dangerous stage that
the Chattanooga convention met,
and seeing and realizing the danger
ahead, made a platform ringing with
Reform. With all that, the rank and
file of the party were doubtful, dis
trustful, lethargic and hard to
arouse. They sulked in their tents
and refused to be comforted for a
time. But by the most strenuous
efforts they were aroused once more,
and by their verdict have said, we
will give you one more trial. If the
McMillin administration is what it
promises to be ; what we know his
experience and ability can make it
if he will, then we will all get back
In line two years hence, and give
him a majority he may live and die
proud of. But if not; if our alfairs
are run in the same loose, disjointed,
extravagant fashion, then look out
for squalls; for "rather than endure
the ills we have, we will fly to those
we wot not of."

The election of Roosevelt as Gov
ernor of New York, is an endorse
ment of his former enforcement of
the Sunday law. The brewers, dis
tillers, wholesale and retail liquor
dealers fought him with all the
venom of their natures; but he tri
umphantly carried the Empire State
just the same. Which should be a
rnnnndt r to the Democrats there
and elsewhere that whisky bloats

Maury and Giles are by odds the
largest counties in this Congression
al district. Two years ago they cast
the same Democratic vote, 3,900
each, and their representation in
the Congressional convention was
the same. But In the Congression
al convention two years hence,
Maury willout-class Giles. Neither
will have the strength they had be
fore, but Maury will have five or six
more votes than Giles. Maury's
vote will be about 26, while Giles,
from present indications will have
about 21. There has been a consid
erable fall off in all the counties,
and it will require perhaps a third
less to nominate in the convention
two years hence, than this year if
there had been a convention. Maury
has more nearly held her own than
any of her sister counties in this dis
trict; consequently her strength will
even be greater in proportion than
heretofore. These are important
pointers to the friends of prospec
The Dortch law and the poll tax
law are largely responsible for the
small vote in Tennessee. But that
does not argue, by any means, that
these are bad laws. It rather proves
the contrary to be true. A man who
lacks the intelligence and ambition
to learn to read a plainly printed
ticket, is an exception in his class
If he deserves the free use of the bal
lot. And a man who is not willing
to pay two dollars a year to the
school fund of Tennessee, lacks the
patriotism to make him a safe voter
to choose law makers. These laws
may and doubtless do work injustice
to a deserving few; but in the main
the class affected are either densely
Ignorant, low or vicious, and a law
which excludes them is for the
greatest good to the greatest num
ber. The incoming legislature we
hope will let those laws severely
alone; but the F.lection Commis

should be repealed.

The election last Tuesday was
somewhat of a landside for Democ
racy all over the State, and Fowler
was snowed under by McMillin hv a
majority of something lika 30,000
An alarminar amount of indiffer
ence existed throughout the State.
The Democrats were asleep to a cer
tain extent, but the Republicans
were hopulessly so, and the black
element of that party were so sound-
y wrapped in their slumbers that
very few of them awoke at all.
Chairman McCall, of the Republi
can State Campaign Committee,
said: "The negroes in the State did
not vote at all, and the white Re
publicans showed practically no In
clination to go to the polls " The
Kepunllcans tlnn some solace in the
fact that while the Democratic ma-
ority is large, the Democrats did
not, poll a largp vote.
1 he victory for the Democrats is
even greater than was an;iclpated
by many of the leaders. Especially
did East Tennessee do herself proud.
Several counties in this section,
which have alway- gone for the Re
publicans, went Democratic this
time by good majorities.
As an example of the Indifference
of the voters, less than 6,000 votes
were cast in Davidson county, Fow
ler receiving only about 800 of these.
in an Interview with an American
reporter, Governor-elect McMillin
spoke as follows in regard to the re
sult of the election :
"L could not he otherwise, as a
Democrat, than gratified, and as an
idividual thankful for the result.
It has been a great victory for De
mocracy. I think that it gives De
mocracy assurance that the people
of the State will trust that great
party as long as it continues faith
full to the best interest of the peo
ple. To the best of my ability I pie-
sented Democratic principles, and
only Democratic principles, to the
people, i strove to derend the ac
tion of the Democratic party in its
administration of the important af
fairs or the Htate.
"To that vast number of earnest
workers who worked fur the success
of our party the bovs in the
trenches' the Democratic party
owes, and I personally owe, a great
aeDt or gratitude. '

Chairman Cheairs is entitled to
all the encomiums his friends are
heaping upon him. It is largely due
to his fine executive ability and un
tiring energy that Maury County
gave McMillin a majority 700 larger
than "Our Bob" received two years
ago, and three times greater than
Old Pete's" majority four years
ago. At Democratic headquarters
in Nashville they say no county in
the State was better managed than
The Lilly Whites would'nt sup

grand old party do not dwell to
gether in peace and harmony.
