treat and popular a man as Charles Francis Adams of Massachusetts be had undertaken even so lately as ten years ago the delivery anywhere north of the Mason and Dixons line of the address he delivered in Chicago a few days ago in advocacy of tholerection by Congressional appropria on In one of the parks of the city of Washington of a monument to Rob ert E Lee the great and immortal Confederate chieftain That he would have been stopped and grossly insulted is certain that he would have been mobbed is quite probable Mr Adam who is a scholar as well as a patriot and astatesman isoue of the few great men of the country who adhering inflexibly to the Union cause as one of the original Republicans and supporting vigorously the war policy of President Lincoln when the more vindictive fanatics like Horace Gree were urging that the erring sisters be permitted to depart in peace has made an atter they ar study of the conditions which existed at the time of the socalled rebellion and from those conditions has studied the course of the southern pec pie from the southern standpoint In making this study he has laid aside all prejudice and while he holds as in deed do many eminent southerners now that secession was a mistake he believes that the action of the south ern people leaders andall was prompt cd bv patriotism and their conscien ous conviction of the justness of their cause He believes that they pad in the constitution at least colorable right for their action In this address Intbe perusal of which I found a wealth of pleasure r Adams draws a parallel between Lee and the two other greatest reb els ufbistory Oliver Cromwell and George Washington He relates that though in his rebellion against Charles I Crimwell woo and established and maintained a government of ills own for awhile the monarchy was restur cd to lower upuu his death wbcreup uu he the great protector was de nouuced as a traitor his body exhum ed and hanged at Tyburn burled iin der the gibbet and his head exposed on a pike at Westminister Hall Yet Mr Adams points out English states mansbip long years afterwards study- Ing the conditions of the times and estimating the impulses which moved Cromwell and counting the magnitude of the benefits to the Eugllsh people resulting from his treason palliated if did not justify his offence and rear ed a monument to his memory ai the very place where his skull had been pilloried This bays Mr Adams was never intended to commemorate his treason but as marking the English appreciation of an Englishmans cour age in challenging even his sovereign a cause his conscience told him was right and there can be no doubt of Cromwells belief in that regardI The parallel between Washington and Lee is drawn even closer with the difference that Washington wou and Lee lust Washington had served and position iu tbc British army and followed his state Virginia In rebell against King George Lee had held position iu the Federal army and fallowed his state Virginia low cession tr maod warfare agaiust tbe United States Washington did claim the legal right to resist the and cast his fortunes with the universal law of revolution Lee did claim the legal right of secession andI dCunder the constitution that it was dfiuitely settled only by the issue of the war Which brought about amend meats to the constitution Lee in common with his Countrymen vlnd voted the American courage to do and die for what they conscientiously lieved was right Mr Adams address wrongs no one He believes in equal rights to all His address is a splendid tribute to the Sweet Sunny South ind should be read and appreciated by every SuJt erner As tbe memory ut the geat Washington is enshrined within the hearts of the American people so is memory of the great and npblo Lee en shrived in the hearts of the southern people along with that of Washington JMcScoTT OrfAll parties whoare Indebted ito the News on subscriptlooe are requestAd to settle tbasame at an early day 1 NICE

unity mesas for all those WhO favor the issue upon which tbe Democratic party must make the next puapaign for President betting together and voting the ticket without regard to past dlilerences It means that all those who areoppofied to the trusts the high protective tariff aad tbeI gtcpt rR solidly alnsttheRep1bllcans wheth er they were In favor of the gold standard or the free coinage of silver Democratic unity means that all Democrats shall stand shoulder to shoulder Tookfngforward to the future without crimination and recrimlna tlnn as to tbe past It is upon this idea of Democratic unity all hope of party success must depend lint on teorganlzantion to any Democrat who voted for the regularly nominated candidate for President In 1896 and 1000 is offensive It implies something that ho does not look upon as sound doctrine on sound Democratic policy It argues ad in stability which be belonging to a party which began with the early day republicandhasexistedthrougha adversity as well as in prosperity i not supposed to adjhit What is call ed the conservative wing of the Dem1 ocrallc party may talk as much as it pleases but 05 per cent of the voter- ut the Democratic party voted for Mr Bryan at the two elections at which he was a candidate For 5 per cent of the party to insist that they shall te the reorganizers or that 05 per teat must give up their views and meekly think with the minority causes much cmbarassuient If the real purpose is to secure harmony in tM party tbe word reorganization must bd dropped The gold standard men who bolted Bryan cannot expect the rank and tbe file to permit them to take charge and thus admit that they have been wrong in supporting the tickctand those who bolted itwere right With convervatism on all sides there ran be Democratic hormone and Dem ocratic unity but there cannot be Democratic reorganization without certain Democratic defeat In securing Democratic unity no vital principle of Democracy should he sacrificed On this ins the New York Journal hits the bulls eye A party victory that should not man a triumph for Djmocratic prin ciples could not be worth the winning Indeed it would bo calamitous in the long runtaIn the search for harmony there must be no compromising away of things The interest of the people com first of all Tbe Democratic party must stand for those interests above everything and against the special Interests which control and debauch tbe Republican party or it will be fatally false to tbe mission that lves it life Compromise upm nonessentials and induce harmony between hereto tore warring factions and leaders by all legitimate means That is simply sane politics 6But no harmony with the spirit of plutocracy which permeates tbe Re Republican party No harmony with the crlmloa trusts monstrous in wealth and power which are plundering the people and using the government of tbe republic as their business agencyIPut away politics that divide and adherence to whlc insures defeat but sacrifice no principle Then select as candidates men of proved partv fidelity who know what Democracy means equal right for all privillgcs for com Thit is ground broad enough fur very Democrat In the United Slates to stand on Thus can genuine hnrmony be cured thus only can be won victories worth the wlonlnu Elizabetbtown BETWEEN BROTHERS IsAn affection between brothers some

tract subject to the action of the Democrati party STATE PRIMARY We can not understand why a sentiment favoring a primary t select Democratic candidates for our State ticket should be urged on the party yet il is apparent that this mode seems to be grow ing and will doubtless have its en thusiastic supporters before the party tribunal selected to devise ways and means for settling part troubles A move of this kind in result disasour judgment would triously to the maintaining of a strong and progressive Democracy It would place shackles around many worthy aspirants and chain down laudable ambition It would broaden the fields for the wealthy and contract the avenues of men who blaze out their own path by sheer force of sterling ability and untiring and undaunt ed courage and energy We see no good reasons why the party should have a primary be cause it would create an expense as heavy as a State election and this expense would have its back ers and payers only in those who were able to enter the race We are therefore opposed to a pri mary by reason of that fact We oppose it for the further fact that it does not contain a single move that would enable the party to cure a stronger ticket or to select it on fairer terms than has here tofore existed We oppose it be cause it would tend to centralize the power in our party not only in the hands of the wealthy but would give certain sections of our country an advantage which would not tend to strengthen the party in other localities and after one skirmish one battle the party would emerge from the costly family fight much weaker but probably wiser We trust that such a course will not commend itself to our com mittee and that county conven tions will still hold sway directed by precinct mass meetings of true and loyal Democrats Give us the fairest simplest and cheapest method and it will be in accord with Democratic principles Give us such party laws as will not hamper any section or eliminate any true Dem ocrat from an honest presentation of his desires before the party and when a ticket shall thus have been made angelic love will prevail and irresistible power will be our heritage Down with the intrigues of political schemers and up with the broad and fair methods of true Demccracy Down with expensive primaries the mother of disastrous party troubles and hoist the ban ner of precinct county conventions

and we promise yo now that if you ever get anothe- job of work in this county it will not be from a county officer In making the above threat oast us from Taylor county the sa gacious Editor unintentionally and unwittingly gives onr job office an advertisement and makes a admission of his inability to meet competition His ridicule of our efforts to keep our job presses rnn ning onto no figure We do not consider it a crime to have repre sentatives to sell our goods beyond the borders of our own ceunty We solicit business at home and abroad by strictly fair and honor thoe largest and most complete stock of printers goods of any country office in the State and sell th same on the closest margin consistent with safe business Wese cure business in the broad fieldo compbtition and have no reflec platye orders in the custody of oth ers whether they are secured with in or without the realms of the county in which we live We have no tactics tocontrol the buying of anyone in or out of our county except the merit of our work quality of goods and invit ing prices We are not inclined to believe that the Editor of the Enquirer has a controlling interest in the of ficials of Taylor county neither do we believe that business men will seek the highest market to buy goods We believe that buyers are justly entitled to the benefits of free and untrammeled competi tion and further that no seller should seek to monopolize for the purpose of extorting unjust profits The Enquirers article closes as know you are a power in this land of toad frogs and fleas and we want to ask you to write a doubleleaded editorial next week top of column next to reading matter on both sides about how Taylor county should pay her rail road tax We have heard of sev eral valuable suggestions you have given which we know would meet with their heartfelt gratitude We simply say to the people of Taylor county that the News has never meddled in matters in which it has no part It stears clear of entangling alliances and believes in the spirit and teaching of the Monroe doctrine We will endeavor to pursue our own course in the future as in the past giving all the best service within our power both in the columns of our paper and in our joboffice The News wants a man a Dem ocrat to announce for office with out singing the old song headed After the urgent solicitation of friends I have CONSENTED to be coma a candidate for and anything you may do in the inter est of my cadidaoy will be highly appreciated etc An ambition to hold office is honorable a desire to hue to the line in discharge of of ficial duties is praisworthy and to come out square out and back up your announcement for office and not seek to create the impression that you are such an important factor that you cant get away from the desires of friends would be admirable and would dautless command as much support and more respect than the old chest nut yielding to friends If youI want office say so If your
