It will be my every effort to advance
the interest of this club and her principles
which are Jeffersonian in theory and
Jacksonian In practice. We are not or
ganized, my friends, alone for the purpose
of having a democratic clnb, a place where
we as young democrats can inform our
selves of tbe principles that underiy and
are a part of every time-honored and suc
cessful institution of our goyerament. The
same truths, my fifends, that have been
-the pride and administration of our fore

and perpetuate those same principles and

aud with the earnest enlistment of the
young Democratic yeomanry of
our city and county, and
with that distinguished and loyal
young Democrat Col. F. M. Hughes at

star of Bethlehem itself will ever shine
in the horizon of our-noble cause. Let

Let us assert ourselves, our rights and
our powers and I feel that we shall
ever have the loving hand of un unerr

tives as free men and brave and finally
may tbe bright buoyant banner of pure
Jeffersonian Democracy float trium
phantly and forever from ramparts es
Ublished upon the ruins of dismember
ed republicanism and... Third party
movement. And as tbe silvery moon in
all its fullness reflects the brightness of
tbe sun and cast a lovely halo of glory
o’er dreamy night, so may the Young
Men’s Democratic League here and ev
ery where be ever strong, beautiful and
bright, and thus reflect in Increasing
measure, the increasing .greatness the
bright sun of our modern civilization
Now in tbe language of the immortal
Adams of old: “Sink or swim, live or
die, survive or pertsb, I give my heart
and hand to the cause.”
Capt. W. B. Burnett as chairman of
tbe committee to draft an open tetter to
the young democrats of the eight dis-»
trict, submitted the following which
was unanimously adopted and a thous
and copies ordered printed:
The necessity for organizing the Dem
ocratic party is Imperative. From the
watch tower and battlements of the party
the sleepless sentinel sounds tbe notes of
We are on the eve of a great national
struggle, in which united effort-alone can
win—a contest in which the party of
Jefferson expects every follower of the
true faith to do his duty. False prophets
tion of the South demand the success of
the democratic party. White supremacy
the perpetuation of the principles of local
self government and above all the tran
quility and happiness of our homes demand
the Success and triumph of democratic
The republican party is the common
enemy of our country. It is the father of
the force bill, the mother of cen
tralization and the champion of mon
The third party is the spann of political
infidelity and disappointed ambition, con
ceived in disaffection and bom of malice.
Treachery stood sponsor at its birth—and
falsehood and deception have fostered It.
Their words are sweet as honey but their
way leads to death.
That it was sired by the republican party
we do not doubt, that it shall be eventually
damned by everybody we steadfastly be
lieve. But the grand old Dem
ocratic party is the people’s party,
our sheet anchor in the storm of recon
struction. Under its broad aegis all
classes, creeds and conditions find
solace and protection, ank bla-
zened upon the folds ' of its
gorgeous ensign is that matchless motto:
“government of the people, for the peo
ple and by the people.”
Realizing how precious is the heritage
of our fathers and how secure is the old
ark of the covenant, and how foul are the
hands they see to' profane it—the young
Democracy of Clarke, forgetting all past
differences, have organized for the war
against all enemies, by whatever
name known, under the name of the
Young Men’s Democratic Clnb of Clarke.
Impressed with the necessity of more ex
tended organization they address this let
ter to the young democracy of the eighth
congressional district and earnestly urge
upon them the formation of clubs.
Upon tbe organization of a Young Men’s
Democratic club in every county in the
district it is proposed to form a District
Democratic League composed of represen
tatives from each of the county clubs,to be
known as the Young Men’s Democratic
League of the 8th Congressional District,
and concert of action all over the district
will thus be insured and our organization
shall prove a powerful factor in tbe suc
cess of our party.
We trust you will realize as sre do the
wisdom and prosperity of this cause. The
disintegration of our party is threatened
by an insideous and dangerous foe. Fi
delity to Its imperishableprinciplessacred
traditions demands organization and
activtiy at our hands.
In the name of her illustrous past, filled
with glorious achievements, of her grander
future big with promise, we earnestly in
voke your zealous co-operation.
Vigilance is our watchword Democracy
our battle cry.
The constitution as prepared for tbe
committee was read by Capt. Burnett
and adopted with one amendment plac
ing the age limitations at 18 to SO
Congressman Henry H. Carlton then
delivered an able democratic speech
which was loudly applauded.
The club voted thanks to Congress
man Carlton and bis speech will be
published at the reque st of the club.
The club then adjourned.

of a yonng lady school teacher near Ar

the young lady’s homo and the other'’
afternoon, after school was dismissed,
she started to walk home.
In a lonely piece of woods rim was
grabbed by a hurley negro and taken
into the forest and tied, where she was
kept for two days.
On the evening of the second day a
party searching for her found her tied
to a tree, when she related how she had '
been treated and, as the negro would
soon return asked the party to hide near
in a short while the negro made his 1
appearance, and the watchers, came
forth and captured him. They tortured
him fearfully, skinning him (dive, and
terribly catting him to pieces. What
