1904 Democratic Ticket For President ALTON B PARKER New York For VicePresident HENRY G DAVIS West Virginia For Congress GEO E STONE Wayne ANNOUNCEMENTSFor We are authorized to announce that lIon I II THURMAN of Washington county is a date for Circuit Judge in the district comprising the counties of Green Taylor Marion and Wash ington subject to the action of the Democratic party The Columbia Spectator ex ploded a firecracker last week in its attempt to turn loose babywakerjust a little puff of smoke as usual It charges u with gross inconsistency and as serts that the Democratic is out for office regardless o means and methods It accuses us of drifting from silver to gold from the cause of the people the fold of the trusts Of cours our inconsistency would counter act any statement we could make in defense of our party but if we only possessed a part of the Spec tators consistency courage and convictions we could with pro priety offer an excuse for th News and defend our party fro such welting blows Everybody- knows that the Spectator is stanger to policy and a devout ad vocate of honest politics with no desire to seek political advantage save in that channel hedged in by the golden rule It no doubt scorns an office seeker and h no desire to be on the side of any proposition it seek- to be pure and has displayed wonderful courage for the right in changing its position so often within the last few weeks It denounces fraud but is unable to locate it It is still for the man who received the most votes yet in the face of certified re turns of a majority of 1146 onside and a certificate of nomination based on a majority of 191 on the other issued by the committee elected by the voters of its party it can not determine for whom it stands It opened up in the primary for Hunter Hunter Hunter but entered a plea fpr old man Harmony before trulyt would support either The pri mary has passed and since then its deep and pungent convictions for purity and fair dealingsmeas ureS up to the high standard of courage displayed in fighting for the man of its choice It still evades the issue andstands pat for old man Purity but has not yet located him Like Kuropatkin forstragetic reasons it has crossed the Taitse river many times threw up breastworks- at Liao Yang fired its big gun andretreated north but along the line of march it encountered many harrassing engagements arriving at Mukden still undecid ed as to a stand The Guatemala division now encampednear that city does not afford any com fort so the latest from St Pe tf tersburg Septembei 9th The enemy encamped near the city and Gen Kuropatkin will for stragetic reasons retreat to Har bin Somerset the city of refuge but the road must be the plain highway and through a country free from thieves The editor of the Columbia Spectator introduces a 300 calf and a 7500 mule of 1892 to a 1000 bullock and 150 00 donk ey of 1904 and credits the Repub lican party with creating the ad vance What a wonderful trans formation What infinite power Of course the law of supply and demand has nothing to do since the Republicans have taken charge of the worlds destiny They regulate and create at will There seems to be one article that has advanced even at a greater ratio than the calf and that is the price of a vote It is claimed that more money was spent in the Republican primary last month than at any one time in the past They made the ad vance In two or three precincts in Bell county the vote increased from 30 odd to over 500 They created it Why they put down the price of coke coal and tim ber has not been explained and why they reduced the value of hogs sheep cattle and introduc ed labor troubles throughout the country will doubtless be shown to be one of their great blessings They are the stuff I dont think there is any doubt about New York State going Democratic said Ambrose F Dudley an active Tammany brave at Cincinnati en route to Cleveland and New Jersey along with it We attach no more importance to Vermont in creasing her Republican majority than we do to Arkansas adding a few thousand the other way Murphy and McCurren settled their differences and are pulling together

much like Mr Edwards will win out Hunter however has many resources and knows all the crooks in the road to Congress and will hang on as long as hethinks there is a possible chance Judge Riddle has ordered the district Commit tee to meet at Somerset and again count the votes cast in the pri mary The action of the State Central Committee was in ac cord nce with Judge Riddles or der and was
