The senate will probably pass
the republican tariff bill some time
in September, - and that unjust
measure will be the prime cause of
many republican congressmen
being succeeded by democrats .
what peculiar jusl
politicians in '*bo
parties are considerably disturbed.
In congress the republicans had
their own way until the tariff and
force bills came up for considera
tion in.the senate.- Then it was dis
covered that the leading politicians
ef that party did not agree con
cerning these, great and iniquitous
measures. Senators of great in
fluence and eminent statesmanship
differed with the framers of the
tariff bill, and the trouble was
found to be deeper than, the sur
face. The people had been think
ing, and doing so protests against
the high protective tariff were pre
sented. The politicians of the
high, protective pattern became
'frightened, and some changed their
views in accord with their awaken
The protests against the force
bill created another division, and
this last has resulted in the post
ponement and virtual defeat of
that abominable measure.
The leaders are arrayed against
themselves concerning these two
pet measures of the .party, and, all
in all, the republican party is
sharply divided, and not apt to
unite. This seems favorable to
the democratic party.
But the democrats are not alto
gether happy. The Alliance and
Laborers’ Union, in two great sec
tions, are causing the party much
disquietude. In South-Carolina a
positive split has occurred, and in
one Georgia.district the same con
dition exists. This is uqfortunate,
and if two tickets are voted for in
the elections, democratic loss is
sure to result. In the Alabama
state campaign the alliance was
defeated, but the contest-is renew
ed in the congressional campaigns
of the several districts. In Mis
souri, Illinois, and other states,
the Alliance and Workingmen’s
Union hold the balance of power,
and neither the democrats nor the
republicans know where their
votes will be placed.
Altogether the situation is a re
markable one, and an opinion as to
the final result would be nothing
move than guess work. However,
we are inclined to believe that - the
democrats will be in. the ascend
ency when the congressional re
turns are all in. In the south the
alliance candidates are all demo
crats, and if the independentism
causes a few republicans to be
elected, much more than an offset-
will occur in. our favor from the re
publican disaffection caused by the
tariff and force bills
The indications point to - many
changes, the most important- that
of a democratic majority in the
national House of Representatives.
Gov. Gordon is not the only
man in Georgia fit to represent-the
state in the United States Senate
as the successor of Senator Brown,
but he is emphatically our favorite
in preference to Gol. Livingston.
It is semi-officially reported that
ex-Senator T. M. Norwood will be
a candidate for United States Sen
ator to succeed Senator Brown,
and that he will receive the al
liance support, practically solid.
In a speech to the alliancemen
in Atlanta last week, Gov. Gordon
declared that he could not endorse
the sub-treasury bill. It is now
positively asserted that there will
be opposition to the election of
Gov. Gordon to the United States

The following editorial from the
Southern Alliance Farmer is con
clusive evidence that the election
of Gov. Gordon to the United
States Senate will be opposed by
the State Alliance:
“The Alliance of . Georgia has re
affirmed its. allegiance to the St.
Louis platform, and the sub
treasury bill is one its of principal
features. The Alliance has never
demanded that candidates be com
mitted to the specifie details of this
bill, but to the great principles of
abundant and flexible currency
based upon supply and demand,
and backed by non-perishable farm
products as security. In other
words, this bill or something bet
“The Alliance people of Georgia
have believed that Gen. Gordon,
in his candidacy for the United
States Senate, would get upon this
broad and liberal platform, and
thereby enable them to support
We cannot estimate the disap
pointment which was expressed at
the position which he took in his
speech on Wednesday night. He
deliberately placed himself where
they cannot support him without a
sacrifice of the very measure for
which they are struggling. They
even believe that he wants to be
with them, but feel that there is a
strong political organization that
is holding him back. We regret
it, but be has drawn the line him
self, and none but he can take away
that barrier. ' This state of affairs
leaves the Alliance without a can
didate whom it can support, and
there is not a man before the peo
ple who will probably be a candi
date, but Georgia is ever equal to
tbe emergency, and a man for this
one will be found.”
A board of directors was elected
by tbe Georgia State Alliance in
Atlanta last week to formulate and
put into execution a plan of co
operative insurance for tbe alliance.

The farmers in this section have
got their hands full, and if those
who haven’t will go to the cotton
patch, they can get them full
Mr. J. N. Rarker has gone to
picking right. He ran a race with
one of his hands the other day, in
order to get a day’s work done.
Mr. B. picked 98 pounds, and the
negro 100 pounds. He says he
can do better not to pick so fast.
The cotton, crop in this section
is short at least one-third, and if
the weather continues hot, it will
all be picked out by the first of
Corn crops are very good, and
the pork crop is good so far.
The melon crop has been a
success. The growers have made
money on melons this year, but we
hope the farmers will not put their
entire crops in melons next year.
Cotton pickers are very scarce
in this section, and what few there
are want 50 cents per hundred to
pick. The farmers cannot pay
such prices and make anything on
cotton. If farmers would stick to
gether, we could have our cotton
picked for a good deal less. One
man in a neighborhood can ruin
"the whole business in regard to
day labor. He will get four or
five hundred pounds of cotton open
in his field, and if he doesn’t get a
dozen negroes after that, he will
pop up the .price to about twice as
much as he is able to pay, and
consequently it will cost every
The effort to place Dr. Felton in
the field for congress, in the 7th
district, against the nominee, Col.
R. W. Everett, is straight-out in
dependentism. The fact that it is
proposed to hold a convention to
nominate Dr. Eelton, does not af
fect the fact that the purpose is to
defeat the democratic nominee.
Col. Everett is not less a democrat
because he was brought out and
nominated by alliancemen chiefly.

cal issues is made clear. He oppo
ses the present convict lease sys

qualified for the position he offers
to fill, and the Bibb county demo
crats could not do better than to
nominate and elect him.
The officials of Chicago have
hot yet decided whore the World’s

ward preparing for the fair, which
is contracted to be held in 1892.

wants it—audits papers are de
