I desire to express my sincerest gratifi cation for this high and honorable posi tion, which to fill ably and satisfactorily to you and for the advancement of demo-' ciatic principles will be my honest and untiring endeavors. Questions confront us today that are new and we muji ^dmit they are fought with many compilations, the solution of which must and will be reached througtf the democratic jwxty and the organization and education Of the young democrats of the country. And as yocr presiding officer I am cog nizant of duty ahd fully realizethe respon sibility that this position devolves upon e. 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 fathers for logger than a century, bat gen tlemen we are organized to guard, protect and perpetuate those same principles and truths that art the salvation of every aac-. red institution of the American people. Yes, to combat my movement or effort that tends to disrupt the Democratic par ty with tire same sentemeat that actuated our fathers to leave their'homes and go out upon the battlefields only a few years ago for the protection of the' rights of their people. • Let us follow democrats, labor for labor, special privileges to none, equal rights to every citizen of our beloved country. Nominations being in order for sec retary, Mr. T. R. R. Cobb in a neat little speech placed in nomination Mr. T. W. Reed. Mr. Reed, thanking tbe movant for his kindness, withdrew and nominated Mr. R B. Porter, who was unanimous ly elected. In taking his office, Secretary Porter i-aid: Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Young Men’s Democratic League of Clarke: My words are not sufficient to tbsnk you for the distinguished honor yon have conferred .Upon me in making me your secretary. can but pledge to you uiy sincere allegiance to tbe cause and as much as in me is, I offer you. I feel, fellow citizen?, that we are start ing out under the brightest auspices; 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 helm as your president I feel that the star of Bethlehem itself will ever shine in the horizon of our-noble cause. Let ns rise then Democrats phoenix like. Let us assert ourselves, our rights and our powers and I feel that we shall ever have the loving hand of un unerr ing providence to guide ns on our way to an untramelied exercise . of our preroga 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 warning. 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 principles. 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 opolies. 8 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 years. 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.

It May Have to go Into the Hands of a Receiver—The Latest Rumors In Regard to the Terminal. Nxw York, Sept. 12.—[Special.] — There is a strong rumor in Wall street that tbe Richmond Terminal or some of its subsidiary companies may soon be pot in a receiver’s hands. None of tbe executive officers of the company nor its counsel could be found today. Tbe only statement that can be given with authority is that a plan to fund the floating debt by exchanging out- s'-andinfe claims for three-year notes is being considered. Tbe floating debt to be pro-rated for an aggregate of over $9,000,000, of this $3,750,000 is covered by tbe Georgia Central company; $4,000,000 by the Richmond and Danville; $1,100,000 by by tbe East Tennessee and $5,00,000 by tbe Richmond Terminal on its own ac count. Part of tbe floating debt of the subsi diary company is owed to the Rich mond Terminal, which advanced mon ey to the company to meet pressing ob ligations. The denials are offered by the officers of the company, but are not author ized as official, to tbe reports that a re ceivership is pending, and It is stated in the same way that no loanB have been called and that tbe companies named have met all claims as they ma ture. It is algo stated that two-thirds of their lines have assented to the pro posed extension. The plan closely follows tbe one adopted by the Union Pacflic compa ny. Tbe securities of the subsidy compa nies will be deptosited in trust. It is said that there is an abundance of the Georgia Central alone having a list of assets footing up a par valve of $29,000,000. The other companies are said to have an equally large amount of assets, and the floating debt of the various compa nies is reported to have been the result simply of inability to place bonds in tbe present coudition of the market.

London, Sept. 12.—There have been published the articles of association which .will formally launch Baron HiiYicii'a munificent scheme of benefac tion to the poor and oppressed of his race. It takes the form of a limited, liability company called the "Jewish Coloniza tion association, registered," the office of which will be in London.

D. Mocatta and Benjamin Luis Cohen, all of London, and Salmon Reinach and S. H. Gold schmidt of Paris. This leaves three shares unallotted, and doubtless these will be offered to representatives of the United States and Germany. The objects of the association are as they have been generally understood ; that is, to assist the emigration of Jews from countries in Europe and A«Yq where they are subjected to spedal taxes and disabilities, to’other parte of the world, and to establish ookmiee in North uud South America for agricul tural and commercial purposes. No colonies will be attempted iu Europe.

If, mion tbe widening up or dissolu tion of the company, any property re mains, it is not to be distributed among the members, but transferred to aqpSf Other Jewish institution with similar objects, to be used for the benefit of the Jewish community residing oat of Eu rope and needing pecuniary aid. In the event of such dissolution all persons who at the time hold l»twte Igntion payments to the company, and the same is true of those to whom advances have been made. Not more than half of the capital is to be applied to acquiring property, Joying tends, erecting buildings, etc. The rest is to be applied to expenses of transporting and otherwise assisting emigrants.

The governing body will be a council of adzmnUtXHtion, consisting of from throe ti) rix men, who used not necessarily be members of the company, and who will be elected for five years. These will nave no salaries, bnt will have their actual expenses. This council will ap- oint directors, three or lees in number, rhowill receive salaries and who will be required to have no interest what ever iu any business and devote their Whole time in the work of the company.
