He Wan glad to get out of Georgia ami lie'll Ixj glad to leave North Carolina. The Honthcrn Alliance Farmer ticwnpa[ier is reported in straight ened oircninstances and will proba bly Blraigliten itself out in the om- bruee* of death oil November 7tli, if not earlier, 'l’lio God of intelligence, virtue and temperance bo praised ! The Gajskttr congratulates tlie Atluntn Herald iijioii the ncqiiiuilion of Mr. J. 0. McMicluiol aa its husi- ness manager. He is a ripo newspa per man, having an experience of more than twenty-llvo years active i In the various departments of newspaper work. ~~ All Hint is necessary to make every farm in Rout.ii Georgia t he homo of a happy and contented family is a few years of intelligent and earnest labor. Let our farmer friends look around them and consider if this is not true; their successful neighbors are living examples of the truth of this asser tion. The Gazkttk supports the demo cratic) party in this campaign because it is right, anil because it represents till) best interests of nil the people— It represents Intelligence, virtue ami temiHiranea ns primary principles, looking to tile leal Hi and happiness of the |H>ople. Header, don’t forget tills! , Georgia is still contributing to the list of dumonrutio stump speakers in the north ui.d west, Inc latest being Hon: John Temple Graves. There was a ipeoiul demand for Ids services on the stump in New York state, uml ho is now there pouring the oil of conciliation upon the troubled waters as only lie can. To Illustrate the claiming procliv ities of the third party an. exchange mentions this striking example: They claim theirs to lie the old time dem ocratic platform of Thomas Jeffer son; it demands government oivner ship of railroads, a condition tiiat. good old Tom Jefferson never dream ed of as lie died beforo there was siioli a thing as a railroad or locomo tive. Ho you indorse Weaver and his record of oppression in Tennessee! 1 Ho you sanction female suffrage us taught hy Mrs. Mary K. In'iiuo? Ho yon accept the ruinous pension ap propriations its advocated by “Uy olono" Davis? If not you must volo the straight democratic ticket; the third mid republican parties have united in favor of these miserahlu heresies. Labor Coiiinilssloner I’eok, of New York, lias gotten himself in trouble hy burning the record* to cover the falsity of his ro|>o?t concerning the effect of the McKinley tariff on wages. His sin has foiled him out, and the erstwhile triumphant yells of the ro publican leaders over what they hoped was a vindication of their pro tective jxilicy have subsided into groans of disappointment mid olia grin. "Truth is mighty and will prevail." The republican congressional con vention of the second district mot In Albany yesterday. The early hour at which the Gazkttk goes to press prevent* it giving the convention's notion, hut it is safe to say that il broke up in a low, as the republican household of the district seem to bo unalterably divided on ttio question of fusion with the, A largo majority of'the colored contin gent say "that unless they can got a itmlghUmt republican they had rath er take a good democrat whom the best element of their white fellow- citizens, whom they know, arc sup porting." Next Wednesday is the state elec tion. Vote for Northen and the full state ticket; vote for Moore for the senate and Knight for the house. The G azettk has naught to say aguiust the private characters of the third party candidates for the senute and house— Messrs. Bneiul and Huberts—but the people cannot afford to approve their political positions in this cumpuign simply for past friendship. Indeed, they do not expect you todoit. They will think more of you if you sliull stund linn to your convictions of right mid vote with your party. There arc principles involved in the c«m|iaigii which should he esteemed higher than mere jicrsonal friendship. The principles of intelligence, virtue and tcmiieruncc have been thrown into the political scales as against the abstract theories relativo to hind, transportation and finance. lepsls so laid that lie can’t unjuy any'of flu In good tiling* it eomatnaf flu wont linvn ilyincnnl* If lin takes Du Will’* Carly III. llo Karly ItUurn. Dr. J. G. Goodman. Stop unit Think. Tins is the Inst talk the Uaxettk can have with its readers before the slate election. There is much of weal or woe depending upon the re suit of Unit election to the people of Georgia, lienee the extra earnestness of this appeal to them to act in the fear of God when they go to the -poHg- next Wednesday and deposit their votes in the ballot-box will be pardoned. The people of Berrien, Colquitt, i p 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 uuswer, no. '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- dloe. 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 primary.
