Great Torchlight Procession
siiml Appropriate Ti-utisput"
It is impossible for us to give n full
unci correct account of the great dem
unelrution t f lire Democracy in this
jfliud} hn Wednesday hist, in the ghtiTt
time and limited space at our com
mand before going to press. It would
retju ire a day to get up a true ami
complete sko'ci; w hich we have to prtn
dense In a few hours. Therefore, any
shortcoming or omission in this report
must be attributed to the causes given ;
and not from, any want ol dftsire to “do
the subject justice.”
On Tuesday night a meeting of the
Young Men’s Democratic Club took
place, and there being several speakers
present from a dis'auce, Col. A. It
! Larnar and J M. Russell, Esq., were
invited to address the Club. Col. La
mar being unwell, excused himsslf and
gave way to Mr. Russell who address
ed the meeting in a handsome and
logical speech, ornated with classical
references which ho aj propriately ap
plied to the history of the times Hon.
, L. L. Stanford, of Harris county, be
ing loudlv called for, toon the stmd
I ° ’
| and spoke at considerable length
I showing up the duplicity and rascality
iof the Radicals towards the negroes,
i and to the whole county. His remarks
! were sarcastic and were greeted with
1 rounds of applause.
Wednesday morning was ushered
in by the loud b.ioming of the cannon.
The sun rose in magnificent splendor,
and the day promised to be one of
beauty. At an early hour after break
fast, the people of Troup, and tie stir
rounding counties, began to come in by
the scores and hundreds, and by nine
o'clock the town was literally tliroug
ed, rammed and jammed in all its
sireets, with carriages and all sorts of
vehicles filled with peop'e—men, wo
men ani children An extra traiu
from Newnan brought down hundreds
of enthusiastic Democrats from Cowe
ta and Meriwether. A procession was
formed at the dep t and marched to'
the Court House yard, where they
were welcomed, in appropriate and
eloquent terms, by W. O Tuggle,
Esq . and responded ti\ in onjjf qually
appropiia.e manner by JL* F. Smith,
Esq., of the Y'ouug Men’s Democratic
Gluh of New nan.
About 10 o’clock, the procession was
formed under the direction of Col. W.
U Jones, Chief Marshal <.f the Day,
assisted by Alaj. H. \V." AI organ, ii
S. McFarland, and B. F. Curiright on
the part of the Young Men’s Deiia)-
cra ic Club. Escorted by the Newnan
brusfs band, the procession moved out
to tno beautiful grove of Mr. A. S
Harris, where a substantial stand was
erected for the speakers.
Dr. R- A. T Ridley, chairman of
the Democratic Club of i’roup county,
presided, with \V. 0. Tuggle, W. 11
Huntley and C. 11. C. Willingham as
Secretaries Rev. H. C. Uornady was
presented as Chaplain of the day, wh-.-n
he delivered an appropriate prayer.
Judge Jno. T. Clarke, one of the
candidates for Elector for (he State at
large was then introduced amid cheers
and applause. He made an excellent
speech. It was calm and collected, de
liberate and argumentative. The Judge
unde a sound, constitutional argu
ment, displaying perfect familiarity
with and great aptitude in presenting
the vital issues of the day—rising, now
aod then, to. an eloquence in discussion
beautilul and grand Wo regret wc
hate not his speech to pub.ish or notes
to give the substance of his argument.
Col. Carey W. Styles, of the Atlanta
“Constitution,” was the next speaker.
For an hour ar so he enchained his
auditory wi.h eloquence, forcing from
the people rounds ol applause as he
portrayed, in strong and nervous lan
guage, the enormities ol Radical ven
ality. He addressed himsed, at some
length, to the colored people, many id
whom were present and listened to him
with marked attention.
After Col Styles, came Maj K- J.
MoseS, tbe able anti gallant standard
bearer of tbe Third District on the
electoral ticket. Muj. Moses is a fin
ished orator and an earnest debater
and a true Democrat, and has already
done manly serviee Jur Democracy in

the af ernoon a speech was made at
the Court House by Hon. Hugh Buch

ment; buthefore he had finished, and :
wliile rie w as din ding his remarks to j
tint colored men present w ith good es

the i’ublio Square and interrupted tiin '

cutmslanee and not very appropriate to
the hour. The fantasties would have
been more effective as well as appro

Ac 8 o’clock, the torchlight proces

trails pareneies, vras foimed in front of
the Sims House, headed by the Ncw

upon wheels and drawn by four horses
and inarched through the principal
streets of the town. We are sorry we
cannot give a description of these.—

altogether a brilliant display and a
At 9 o’clock Col R. J. Cowart, of
Atlanta, took the stand in the Court
House and made one of his telling
speeches, bringing down the house
with great applause. He is a very
popular speaker, aod his blows are felt
w herevat he makes them. Col. C. was
followed by L. L. Stanford, who made
a short and pointed speech.
Thus closed a great day for the De
mocracy in Troup. It is variously es
timated that there were from 3 000 to
5000 people present. Nothing trans
