Dawson, Oct 21 —I see that
both Mr. W. E II. Searcy, of Grl
fin,and Judge VV. Milo Olin, of
Augusta, have declined the honor
if serving ns electors on tile St.
John electoral ticket. In my hum
ble opinion they have acted nobly,
id their courso merits and should
receive llte approbation of every
true democrat, whether he be a
prohibitionist or otherwise. This
a no time for side issue*, side-shows
nor side-saddles. St. John, Butler,
and even Lockwood sbouhl beig
nored on the present occasion, and
let it' be a square, open light be
tween Radicalism and Democracy.
Every man, whatever may he bis
color, his creed, or to whatever
putyhemiy have heretofore be-
loagel, il he desires an honest,
faithful and economical adminis
tration of the affairs of the goveri •
ment, he should at once nnd earn
estly espouse tbe cause of purr,
u.adulterated Democracy. Let us
try Cleveland and Hendricks one
term, nnd if they disappoint is
there will be plenty of good men—
much b tier tuen than Blaine and
Logan—ready and willing to lako
their places four years hence.
An old gentleman came into tbe
store to-day and asked the price of
bacon. I told him, twelve cents
He looked astonished, and exclaim
ed: ‘'Meat at twelve cents and
cotton at eight and a lull I What
are the poor farmers to do?” 1 re
plied: “Raise vo ir meat and buy
*“"**»; n,',Mr l „ !> ;7:i r 'w' h ,M What cotton you wnnt. You can
laise meat cheaper than you can
buy it, and you can huy cotlou
cheaper than you can raise it.” He
looked down at the floor and
scratched bis head a moment, as if
repealing the words over to him
self, then looked up, smiled, nnd
said: “D—d good suggestion! I’ll
try il." But I fear be will forget
it when planting time comes.

Th* Dcnxocrnilc Committee ot Work,
New York, Oct. 22.—At the
democratic political headquarters
everything is in good shape r or
the contest lor Tuesday, two weeks
hence. Tbe managers never felt
more confident, and the most hope
ful reports are being received
every hour during the day. Too
bolt of the independent republicans
is now taking a definite shape, and
the republicans are just beginning
to realize the strength of this ele-
ment, whieli they heretofore dis
countenanced. There is no doubt
but tlmi it will bu a serious loss to
the republican vole, anil will figure
very prominently in the summing
up ft Cleveland's vote in this
The independents have complet
ed a very elaborate and painstaking
canvass of trie state. They have
precisely 85,320 names of solid re-
publicans signed to pledges that
they will nut vote for Blaine. Fully
80,000 of the total have voluntary
pledgctl themselves to vole for
Cleveland, while tbe remainder re
fused to sav what they would do.
Added to the number giv<-u there
are thousands ot republicans who
simply said to tho canvassers that
they would not vote for Blaine or
Oluvelund either, and no mention
was made of St. John or Butler,
thus really placing the (roll against
Blaine a-, in >re than 100 000 votes,
or a number almost equai to the
holt against Folgi-r two years ago.
I’he latest and best estimate of the
St. John vole in forty counties of
his state places it at 21.600. The
feeling among democrats at head
quarters is one of oonfidcnce, ami
ney are uluiminj New York, New
Jersey, Connecticut, Indiana ant)
Lite solid south.
To attempt to check tho tide
which threatens lire overthrow ol
his lifelong hopes, Mr. Blaine, if
lie statements made at the repub
lican state committee's headquar
ters are to be believed, will turn
Iris caravan towards lire cast the
miter part of this week, und on
Monday night next will give an
zhibition at A.ngelica, Allegany
louniy. The following day he i*
expeeted, according to thsse sane
iutliorit.es, in this city. He is noi
ntirely satisfied with tho work o'
the state committee. If reports are
to he believed. In fact, it is the
opinion of old campaigners that no
more incompetent a state commit
tee ever managed any candidate’s
The unbounded and unblushing
ohcek of the republican state cam
paign committees in issuing an
addreBS congratulatory on the re
suit of the election in West Vir
ginia and Ouio, is laughed at by
the dem'icra-s. It oharao’erizid
tho “republican victories" in those
states, and in Vermont and Milne
as * most significant.” It di-cl r res
that in the long public life of their
candidate no vulnerable point can
be found, and with such saJsfac-
tion asserts that “the enemy is still
Advices from Ohio indicate that
the republicans ure by no means
sure of carrying that state in No

A United States detective told a
teporter yesterday, say s the Nash
ville American ol Oct. 21, that
there were a number of $20 coun
terfeit silver certificates in circnla-
H in In Nashville and other parta
of the Southwest. The counter
feit will be easily detected bv those
who are posted, hut in order to
give the public the benefit of the
detective's experience, tbe follow
ing delects in these notes are stat
ed: In the notes no attempt has
been made to imitate the fibre
paper on which all genuine notes
of the series 1880 are printed. The
large seal ami the two I >rgc XX in
Hie centre of tire note have a Dark
red appearance, while on (lie genu
ine the seal and XX ure of a dark
brown, or uhoculute color. The
words “Silver Certificate” appear
in panels twice in the upper bor-
dor on the face of the note. In
the panel to the left, in the coun
terfeit, 'he leticra R. T and Fin
the word cerlificaro are engraved
wrong side up. The counlerleit is
a triflle shocier than the genuine,
and dark and greasy. The portrait
of Stephen Dicatur is poo ly en
graved,anil will not compare with
the genuine. All that the detect
ive lias seen, so I'ar, are numbered
B 1.467 X und B 14 87,415 X. The
numbers ure uneven, hut have a
fine blue color, closely rosembling
tho genuine. The plates are still
in ihe hands of the counterfeiters,
who are correcting the errors above
mentioned from time to time, so
that nil $20 silver certificates i f
this series should be handled with
care, as the geometrical lathe work
if fair and liable tjihe ivc. The
next lot issued will prohalriy be

leiters are said to have flooded the
