The party choice could hardly fall on a more proper man.c Mr.McMiIlin is a man of clean life. Holms been much in the public eve and in his long public service do scandal of any kind has ever attached to his name, lie was twenty years in congress and served two terms as governor. He came out of both places poor.

Finally his manners be came intolerable. One old chip munk went up to him and said, "So you claim to be a chipmunk." "Certainly, of tho better sort."

Zlmnetmaa Co.-No. THE possession of a Bank account brings a contentment which means more than a mere feeling of independence. Worry hurts more than work and does you no good. So no matter how hard you work, you accom. plish very little as long as you worry, and for this reason the contented person is always successful. When it is so easy to start.an account at our bank and means so much toward your happiness and success, why put it off any longer? Lawrence Bank & Trust Company, Jeff McCarn and (jus Dyer of Nashville, though professing to bo democrats, are refusing to har monize for the reason as they al lege that Hooper ought to be re elected governor and that a har. monized democracy will bo apt to substitute someone else for this patriot when tho time rolls round. Regarded in the light of a prophe cy this supposition on their part is not a violent one. With dem ocracy in charge the present in cumbent is likely to bo retired. But tho fear is entertained by many thoughtful and amiable peo pie that Jeff and Gus are not dem ocrats. Each one seems willing to sacrifice himself on the altar of any fat office that may come along and both are strong in the moral- upliit propaganda, hut tnere is a feeling in the public mind that they belong to tho commercial typo of politicians and tho prote- ariat receives their moral uplift professions with a sense of humor. hey remind one of the polecat and the chipmunk colony.

Cam and Professor Dyer Re. garding Reported Committee Meeting. Col- 0. C. Barton, chairman of the independent democratic executive com mittee, in reply to a communication from Gen. Jeff McCarn and Prof. Gus Dyer, asking him to reassemble the committee of which he is chairman, has advised the authors of the letter to "sit stilt in the boat." The reply was re ceived Monday by the lshvillians, and they in turn wrote to Chairman Barton again asking that the committee recon sider its former action. The correspondence follows; "Office of 0 .

Tbis is the only way to formulate and fix the principles and policies of the par ty and has been tho practice of the party since its organization. It does seem a little singular that the very men who fathered the Barton proposition are now in open re volt against it since its acceptance. Mr. VcrtreoH met them on their own grounds, accepted their pro- osals and then all parties agreed to leave tho platform to the May convention. Democrats will elect the delegates to that convention. heso delegates will bo fresh from the people and will know their wants and wishes and will make no mistake as to the proper platform Some of Mr. Uaiton's followers object to the agreement on the ground that the united democratic party will not reelect Mr. Hooper.

No oneev- r uave uoiu P.uut er believed that all tho murders and other crimes could be carried on with such system and regularity without the knowledge of those higher up. Many of their secret conspiracies have been brought to ight and exposed. The moral turpitude and criminality develop they may be in the path of the ightning when it strikes. Most of them are announcing a platform of principles on which they are sking the support of the people. The lest platform any man can have is the one to be adopted by the May convention. When the convention meets in May it will adopt and promulgate a platform of principles on which all candi dates imist stand. What that plat form will be of course no one now can tell. But when it is adopted it will be democracy. And the can didate who does not stand squarely on it can not hope for democratic votes. The only true anJ proper test of a democrat is supporting the platform and voting the ticket. Iereaf ter this will be the test and all who do not measure up to it will become back numbers. Dem ocrats are together now and must stay together and dominate the af airs of this slate. Tho trouble between Woodrow Wilson, lienry Watterson ana Col. Harvey is most unfortunate. It looks now like it will smother the presidential aspirations of Mr, Wilson and eliminate him from the running. That he could have so blundered is almost inconceiva ble. He was thought to be a man that measured up to the presiden tial standard and the popular cur rents were turning rapidly in his direction. Tho best and most in fluential men of the whole country were turning to him as the leader to pilot us out of republican domi nation and misrule. But in a mo ment of piquo and bad manners he has developed his true measure and that is too small for the place to which he aspires. He is now back number. GROCERIES A COMPLETE!

Corner of Square- It is to be regretted that all of those who left the democratic par ty last year can not see their way clear to come back under the agreement made by the two com mittees. The agreement reached is practically the same as proposed in the first place by the Barton committee. At the time that pro posal of settlement wa9 made to Mr. Vertrees this paper mads ob jection to it on the ground that it suggested no adjustment of the party principles and policies on which the two sides disagreed. But now that Vertrees and his committee have accepted the Bar ton proposition, surely the follow ers of Mr. Barton ought not to complain. The harmony plan adopted provides for a primary asd leave U questions of ths part of the pulseless past.
