Jackson is the best cotton roar
ket in this country. Farmers
get more on an average for
their cotton than at anyother town
in this country. The merchants
here sell goods cheaper than any
other merchants and anything you
want is for sale in Jackson cheaper
than the same kind of goods at
any other place. The truth is when
you get a little more for your cotton
and get your goods for a little less,
the common sense of it all is this:
it pays and pays like anything to
come to Jackson.
The result of the goyerror’s election
this year will be liken unto this:
Hines—he ran against him, and the
shock was so disastrous that the elec
tions will be coutested.
It is reported that John Temple
Graves lias joined the piano party. All
he needs now is a good smelling “coon”
to go around with him as a scotch in his
stumping campaign. He is not a full
fledged “pop” unless he gets him a black
key as a companion, for the piano party
is made up of a black and white key
boardT'fhrd irotif tree- flGg don’t lie, the
blamed thing will be badly out~bi t.VLne
after the coming election.
Democratic speakers are now engaged
in tearing down the air castles recently
erected by the piauo party, throughout
the state. They are shelling the woods
.with “Hinesy,” and the poor fellow just
keeps dodging around trying to find an
open space to yell in, but about the time
he pokes his head out some stalwart
democrat taps him on the anatomy, and
runs him back in his hole.
Thomas E. Watson has been noraitated
by the piano party to make the race for
congress again in the Tenth District.
Tom, your name has 13 letters in it!
That, of itself, is a Jonah to you! even
if your fanatical ideas were correct.
Thirteen is an unlucky number, and
that coupled with your government
ownership of steamboats is enough to
collapse a much larger man than you,
The Chino-Japo-Scrapo is still rushing
along at a rapid rate. They have been
wanting to fight each other for the past
two months, but they don’t exactly
know how to get at it They call each
other hard names across the water, and
then both sides take a running start and
get out of the way of each other. For
war-s without bloodshed the Cbinee-
Japanee fiasco takes the rag off the bush.
Both sides are trying to buy up all the
war ships on both continents, and when
they get well equipped with guns and
ammunition, they will make ugly faces
at each other, call the fight a draw, and
go back to eating rat# and making fire
A BAD STATE OF AFFAIRS.
Messrs. Editors: —l have noticed
with great interest the controversy
between “America’’and “Columbia,”
anil withuot siding with either will
submit a few thoughts tor theirconsd
eration. The fihancial and economic
conditions of this nation must, to the
thoughtful mind, seem alarming.
In the banks of the East we tiud a
plethora ot money. In New York,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Mas
sachusetts the amount of banking
capital is greater than any other
twenty states combined. Their bank
coffers overflowing, while throughout
the great arteries and veins of the
commercial and industrial body there
is but tlie feeblest circulation, and
the pulse of trade and rewardol effort
if found at all, is felt but as a feeble,
flickering and almost expiring gleam
of life. This condition in the physi
cal body would indicate to the
skilled diagnostician a speedy dissolu
tion if relict was not obtained. So the
economic condition may well awaken
grave apprehensions in the minds of
patriot*, and at least make the
moit heroic mea rsures tending to re
store to all j arts ot the system, the
motion of the life giving fluid. The
condition of the nation today parallels
the conditions that have existed at dif
ferent epochs of our race. Turn back
the panes of history and you will find
traced in the overflow and downfall
of every nation, conditions similar to
those affecting our country. The
question arises what has produced it?
Our crime is a financial one, commenc
ing with tlie Republican policy of con •
traction in 18(50; the robbing of the
credit strengthening act in ’OK; the
grand larceny of ‘73, culminating in
the folly of'92. We have legislated
ourselves in the condition in violating
the pledges and promises made to the
people contained in the platforms of
either party. Relief can come only
by legislating ourselves out of this
condition. The debt in the United
States, public and private, is $295.00
per capita. The annual interest is
$17.00 per capita. The total stock of
gold, coin aod bullion, in the world is
$2.52 per capita. The total stock of
silver, coin and bullion, in the world
is $2.58 per capita. The annual out
put of gold for the past ten years has
been seven and one-half cents per
capita; the annual output of silver
for the same time has been nine and
seven-tenths cents per capita. What
a pyramid of deb! is $295.00 pei capi
ta with an accumulating interest—is
standing inverted so to speak on an
apex of seven and one-lialf cents :
Can any one believe that with gold
redemption for all money, and gold
standard for all prices, that this inver
ted pyramid can stand with any pet
manancy? The national government
has a gold reserve of much less than
one hundred millions ot gold dollars
to redeem eight or ten times this much
credit, or paper money. Is it not ap
appareut to every one that we need
more primary money to redeem credit
money with, which can be obtained
by restoring silver to its constitu
tional rights as a money ot final pay
ment. This would reduce gold in its
purchasing power, and it being a set
tled fixed maxim, when money conies
down prices go up, and prosperity is
the inevitable result. To complete
the whole system we should repeal of
the ten percent tax upon the is-ue
state banks, reduce the ta tiff to strict
ly a revenue basis.
All of the legislation for the iaj-t two
decades has smacked of paternalism,
governmental protection to national
banks, bond holders, gold hugs, and
doniestjc manufacturers. The result
is the wealth of the nation is concen-
trated in the hands of a few men, who
are the masters of the situation, domi
nating congress, shaping legislation,
guiding the eld ship oj state. to be
stranded at last, I fear, upon the reefs
of centralization. Then the capitalist
aud the federalist, the monopolist and
the centralist, will hold their goulish
feast Over the demise of the republic.
Yours in liberty.

An Anecdote Recalled by the Nomi
nation of Hon. C. L. Bartlett.
Although the nomination of the ;
brilliant voting Bibb statesman was
written in the stars ami a foregone
conclusion, saj s the Columbus En
quirer Sun, the convention of ihe
Sixth district democrats, whi h as
sembled the other day at Indian
Spring to confer the honors of the
party on Charles L. Bartlett, was very
enthusiastic. Prominent among Ihe
distinguished delegates in the con
ventior, physically towering head and j
shoulders above them, like a giant was
the venable and genial Judge Gib
Wright, of Monroe. The judge de
lighted the convention with one of his
characteristic speeches. He compli
mented the delegates on their fine ap
pearance, referring pleasantly to the
fact that with two exceptions they
were all handsome men. The excep
tions were himself and Colonel Van
MoKibben, the well known Butts
lawper, whose friends have never
charged him with the fatal guilt of
Judge Wright expressed bis pleas
ure to second tlie nomination for Mr.
Bartlett. He had known the Bart
lett family for many \ears, and lie
knew that integrity, absolute and un
swerving, had been a characteristic of
the family afways. This recalls, an
incident that, was said to have hap
pened years ago when Judge White
was expounding the law on the bench,
and Charlie Bartlett was just winning
ois spurs as a tolicitor general. In a
pending case an old-timer was on the
witness stand. He had known the so
licitor general all his life, us w ell as
his distinguished father, the lamented
Judge Bartlett. As the solicitor pro
pounded the questions the witness
would always reply calling Colonel
Bartlett by his given name “(/bar
The solicitor general was on his
dignity, and regarded the familiarity
as unseemly. After remonstrating
with the witness, the solicitor general
finally appealed tho the court.
Judge Wright, who appreciated the
situation, with affected sternness, soft
ened by a twinkle of the eye, looked
steadily at the solhitor general and
then said, in that deep voice so in
keeping with his great frame:
“Well, ain’t your name Charlie ? Do
you want him to call you colonel?”
This brought a smile over the court
room, and doubtless satisfied the solic
itor general that, he was appealing
against the impossible. Ills career
since that time lias been a brilliant
and honorable one. He has sat upon
the superior court bench, displaying
his ability and winningj-raise as a
jurist. lie has been nominated by
his party for congress and will be
elected. No one who knows Judge
Bartlett doubts that in the national
capital he will truly and fearlessly il
lustrate Democracy and honor his
