Messrs. Bneiul and Huberts—but the
people cannot afford to approve their
political positions in this cumpuign

they do not expect you todoit. They

The people of Berrien, Colquitt,
Ihn whole world and then Iihu tint dys-
lions of the government have gone aa
fur in fosteiing the cause of temper
ance ns our wisest statesmen think
it prudent to go in that direction.
Third partyism insists that the
questions of land, transportation and
finance are of vast more Importance
to the people than these questions of
intelligence, virtue and temperance.
The Gazettk repudiates and denies
the proposition; but, admitting it to
be true, fcllow-oitizuns, can yon ask
any purty to do more towards the re
clamation of the public domain to
tho use of actnul settlers, the govern
ment control of railroads (govern-
nent ownership of railroads is too
impractical u question to discuss here)
and to correct the financial system of
tiic government than the democratic
purty, witli which you have ufliliuled
ever since the war, lius showed itself
willing to do should it be entrusted
with tiis full power of tho govern
ment? J)o candid with yourselves
and answer this question: is u third
|iurty necessary to tiic accomplish
ment of these ends? You cun but
'Then why diyido and lcavo the
democratic party for one tlmt has
neither power nor prestige, nor can
over hope to Imve? Why not como
buck to the old purty ami help to
destroy that purty which is the au
thor of all the unfair and oppressive
legislation under which you liavo
groaned foi the past thirty years, and
from the effects of which you are
now sighing for relief?
Think on these things nnd then
vjte us your hotter impulses dictate
is to your interest, und the interest of
the country at large.
Irwin ami Worth counties have long
since repudiated the principles of
tho republican purty—as not in har
mony with their Interests, as inimical
to the progress of religion, morality,
education and material prosperity, as
not in uccord with the spirit and ad
vancemeiit of our free institutions—
some of them, good and true men,
have |»<rmittod lliemselves to be led
off after the uncertain principles of
third pnriyism. Tho Gazkttk asks
this class of its readers to stop ami
think about this matter for a fmv
minutes calmly and without, psejit-
Ho you favor free education of tho
people? Ho you cherish education
as absolutely necessary, ami a para
mount policy, to the strength, safety
and |ierpetuuiioii of the government?
If you do, you must vote for the
democratic party which represents
tills doctrine. Hon. Win. J, North
en, the democratic candidate for gov
ernor is tlie very embodiment of the
idea of educating tho people. Ha
lias udlocated such policy in nearly
every county in the state sincu ho
was oalled to the giilieriintorial chair.
His lirst official act almost was to
ward strengthening tlie educational
system of Georgia— he cal led a niuii
to he slate school commissioner from
tho ranks of the state’s foremost ed
ucators, a limn whose whole soul,
mind uml strength uro enlisted in
tho work of education. In conjunc
tion witli his chosen lieutenant, Com-
nilssionur 8. D. Ilrndwell, lie has done
more than any governor Georgia has
had since the war in enthusing the
people to eduoato their ohildrcn and
to restore their cotilldrncc in the
public school system of tiic state.
Are you going to throw nsidc such a
mini for Mr. Pock who, in obedience
to orders from third party headquar
ters, is uml lias boon dumb on this
subject, and who represents a puity
tlmt declares in Its platform that the
intolliguiioo of the people is a second
ary matter? God forbid!
Again, do you esteem the morality
nnd virtue of the peopio os necessary
adjuncts to their happiness and pros
perity? Then you must vote for the
demojratio party, the only party
which represents this principle.
Third partyism declares virtue to be a
secondary question; the dcroooratio
party insists that it is of prime im
portance to tho growth and progress
of UoorgU as a state, and Ims an
swered ovary demand of her people
for protection tu institutions estab
lished to foster and teach morality
ami virtue to all the pcoplu since it
ciinie into power in tho state.
Third-partyism says the question
of temperance Is secondary, while
tho democratic party deohuva It to ho
