The Democratic Executive Committee
of the county will please meet together
at the court house on the Ist Tuesday in
August, at 12 m., for the purpose of de
termining upon the manner and matiei
of selecting delegates to the congression
al convention to be held in Cedartowu on
September 4th. to nominate a candi
date for Congress to represent the 7th
district. We trust every member of the
committee will be present. Other mat
ters of importance may come before you,
material to the welfare of the party.
Your personal presence is requested.

In case of anything like a dead lock in
the seventh district Congressional Con

and throw good humor into the Demo
cratic ranks to nominate Bill Arp? And
Bartow’s quaint philosopher would
make a cracking good Congressman, too.
Bill Arp's casual remark that the bet.
ter element of Northern society was
mainly Republican in politics, is creating
considerable discussion in some quarters,
both North and South. While this may
possibly be true, it seems to us that
friend William was a little “too previous”
in announcing it.
Colquitt did right in refusing to invite
Mr. McKinley to come to Georgia to
make a tariff speech. Nobody has any
objection to McKinley’s coming, but it
would not be proper for leading Demo
crats to invite him. If the Republicans
want him it would be right and proper
for them to invite him.

The Bill Passed.
The agony is over—for a time, at least.
The Mills bill passed the House on Satur
day, by a vote of 1(52 to 140.
Randall was paired with Hogg. The
following Democrats voted against the
bill: Merriman, Bliss and Greenmail, all
of New York, and Sowder. of Pennsylva
nia. Farrar dodged, and AlcAdoo voted
The Republicans who voted for the bill
are Nelson, of Minnesota; Fitch, t)f New
York; Anderson, of Iowa; Brown, of
North Carolina, and Hopkins, Independ
ent, of Virginia.
The only amendment on which ayes
and nays were demanded was putting
cotton ties on the free list. The vote on
this was 170 ayes to 128 nays. A num
ber of Republicans voted for amend
It would be well for the country, per
haps, if this were a settlement of the ques
tion, as it is but a step really toward a
revision of the tariff—the average reduc
tion, under this* bill, being only .about
ten per cent.
But the matter is not settled by a long
jump. The Senate, with its Republican
majority, has yet to act on the bill, and
it is hardly probable that it will pass
that body. So, after all, it is more than
likely that the present Congress will lea ve
the tariff about where they found it.
But taey’ve had lots of fun over it.
Judge Branham Withdraws.
The Rome Tribune of the 24th con
tained a card from Judge Joel Branham,
withdrawing from the Congressional
race. The reason, he says, is of a “pri
vate nature not necessary to mention
to the public.”
Many good men who favored Judge
Branham will regret tin’s step.
It is hard to tell what effect this with
drawal will have on the race, as Judge
Branham's friends seem to have been
scattered in such a way that they will
probably be pretty evenly divided among
the other candidates. Of course, the
friends of each of the other can
didates claim that it will strengthen the
cause of their particular man.
The race will now be between Clements
and Shumate, with Phillips and Reese as

their enterprise, will proceed to arrange
preliminaries for the prosecution of their
work at an early date.
The precise location has been settled
by them and granted by the land com
