For the fifth time Hon. Chas.
L. Bartlett, has laien nominated
by the democratic gmrty of the
Sixth district as itsrop reaeiltative
in the national bouse of represen
tatives, the nomination for the
fifth term being field in Macon
Tuesday. This nomination is, of
course, equivalent to an election.
Since his first nomination, Con-
gressman Bartlett has practically
liad no opposition, either inside
or outside tlx- party, and every
year he has been gaining in popu
lar favor, at homo and in congress.
The people of the district believe
in him with all their hearts.
They know that they can depend
upon him at all times, and that
fie never tires in his efforts to
help them- They look upon him
as their personal friend and it, is,
therefore, no wonder that there is
probably not another congressmjHi
in the house who is so popular
with the individual constituents
of his district. The sixth district
is proud of the record made by
congressman Bartlett, and the
people are proud to nominate and
elect him for the fifth time and
as many times hereafter as he
may desire them to do so.

Aii unusual sight, was that of u
gentleman driving through the
square with his buggy on fire
Tuesday at noon. He was driv
ing along and discovered smoke a
rising from under the seat. On
looking down he discovered some
oats that he ha<l jlaced in the hot
tom of the buggy were on fire and
lie stopped and quuiekly extin
guished th<> lire. Whether they
caught from the intense heat of
the rays of the sun or whether
caused by dropping a match in
them it is not known.
Puhlin Chautauqua lee'K.
The Dublin clmutauqua, which
was held the week before the
Harnesville chautauqua, lost sl*
000 on its session, but the plucky
little city says another one will
be held next year.
The Barnesville chautauqua is
more successful. It has made
a little money every year except
one when a combination of ditli
culties arose, which caused a
financial loss. It, has been more
successful than any otler chau
tauqua in the state.
The work on the First National
Bank is being pushed and it will
not be long before the headquar
ters will lie finished.
Contractor Bennett has a force
of workmen tearing down the old
vault and building the new one
just to the rear. The work will
ho completed in a short time.
The plans as have been noticed
hy many assure a very handsome
Tom Watson's great !>ooks, the
history of France and the life of
Napoleon are for sale by Maj. J.
R. Banks, who is now an esteemed
visitor to friends in Bartlesville.
Mr. Watson has made more repu
tation out of these two works than
by anything he has ever done.
They are being read everywhere
and are very popular. If you
want either or both call on Maj.
Banks for them.
A year's subscription to a news
paper has saved many a man the

FOR THE FIFTH TIME HE HAS
BEEN NOMINATED TO'REPRE
SENT THE SIXTH DISTRICT
The Sixth Congressional district
convention met in Macon at the
county court house Tuesday at 12
o’clock and nominator! Hon.
Charles 1.. Bartlett to succeed
himself, this making his fifth
There was a large attendance of
delegates from all the ■counties of
the district and the convention
was harmonious and enthusiastic
The convention was permanent
ly organized by the -election of
Hon. Rufus W. Roberts, of Bald
win, chairman, and Messrs. M. C.
Green, of Jones, E. It. Hines, of
Baldwin, and 15. H. Hardy, of
Pike, as secretaries.
A platform was adopted endors
ing the democratic principles and
policies contained in the national
democratic platforms heretofore
adopted. It also-demands a re
duction of the Dingley tariff law
and condemns the extravagant
expenditure of the public money
by the present republican admin
istration. It also denounces im
perialism and the present bank
ruptcy laws, and vigorously op
poses the trusts which are fasten
ed by the republican party. The
platform ends with the following
well deserved endorsement, of Mr.
“This convention hereby hearti
ly endorses and approves the
course and conduct of the Honor
able Charles L. Bartlett, the
present representative from this
district, and the votes cast by him
upon the various measures that
have come from congress; we
believe that he has devoted him
self and his energies and abilities
to the interests of the people
whom he has represented, and
that by the ability, energy and
unfaltering devotion which he has
manifested for the interest of his
constituents and the people, he
lias demonstrated that lie is an
able and fearless champion of
democratic principles, and that
the interests of the people of this
district are at all times safe in
iiis hands. These are times of
political agitation and serious
trials of the principles of our gov
ernment; they are times when
the people need the bravest and
the best to represent them, and
the democracy of the Sixth Con
gressional district therefore feel
eonfident that to his keeping the
Democratic party and the people
can safely entrust their highest
interest. While we point with
pride to his ent ire career in con
gress, and endorse his course and
votes, we feel especial gratification
in the fact that in him we have
found a champion and a defender
of the people of the South, and
that hernia so effectually and ably
resented and repelled all attacks
upon our people.”
Mr. Bartlett was placed in
nomination by Prof. \\ . E. Rey
nolds, of Baldwin, and seconding
speeches wen* made by Col. Roland
Ellis and Judge W. 1). Notting
ham. of Bibb.
Judge Bartlett responded to the
nomination in a magnificent
speech, which was fully appreciat
ed by the convention. His popu
larity was attested and it was a
royal good time during the entire
session ot' the convention.
