to state how far his authority ex

That’s clear, isn’t it? The agent

The Great National Farce.
A political partj should be com
posed of those who unite their ef
forts for the purpose of carrying out
a public policy upon which they are
This is the substance of the defi
nition given by Edmund Burke :
To carry out some plan, some
principle, sonic reform, individual
citizens unite their strength and their
energies in order that they may suc
ceed in giving effect to the plan, the
principle, or tho reform.
Thus, to free the slaves, the aboli
tion party was formed, by those who
agreed upon the principle that the
owning of human beings by other
human beings was wrong.
Nobody ever heard of an Aboli
tionist or a Republican who was op
posed to the principle upon which
the party was founded. The task
which tho party started out to do
, was done because they all agreed
j and all sided in the work.
I Thus, also, the new party which
Andrew Jackson founded to abolish
■ the National Bank was successful,
because every member of it knew
the principles the party stood for
and worked in harmony with every
other member of the party. Tho

Take Burke's definition and apply
it to these gentlemen : the dear re

Mr. Turner ought to join Tom Reed

Garrard ought to join the populists;
and A. <I. Bacon ought to establish
t a recruiting station, in between, for
‘ the benefit of the undecided.
If the Legislature elects Turner,
, the democracy of the South will be
i represented by a man who is in fu'l
accord with the republicans of lhe ;

under discussion. If it elects Gar- \
i rard or Walsh, the State of Georgia
I will have a Senator who will vote I

therefore be in the absurd position of
electing antagonistic representatives, j
In the South it will select men who '
will kill the votes of democratic Sen.
ators from the North and East.
In the North it will elect demo
cratic Senators whose votes will kill
those of democratic Senators from
the South and West.
Could madness go any further?

If the Legislature tries to escape
the trouble by Bacon they choose a
representative whose position is so
much tangled with “ifs” and “huts’
that no living man can foretell just
where his tired feet will finally rest.

“In politics, the only standard is :
success. The fellow who gets office
is great. It is nothing in the esti- ;
mation of the public to have deserved
success.”—The Augusta Chronicle,
One of the wonders of the nine
■ teenth century is, why will a decent,
respectable and Christian man like
Major Black, vote with, affiliate with
and pose as lhe “standard bearer” of
the dirty wardheeling, boodlin’g and
whisky dispensing gang who run the
democratic party of Richmond j
The above chipping explains it as
The Chronicle represent”, is t|>o i
I mouth-piece of democracy. The
i Chronicle openly says that the high
est, most desirable and best motto
I for politii s is that “The only stand
ard is success."
Major Black has evidently imbibed
the svmiment. At- least we perceive
I that he is hustling for “success,” and
is not considering the means to be I
employed to bring about the desired
end. Success, yon know, overrules
any objection as to means. This is
why the major takes “under bis
wing” the ward heeler. Wardheel
ing is a powerful lever towards suc
cess, and success is ‘ the, only stand,
ard.” The major knows that ward
het ling can’t be carried on without
boodle and whisky, but. success is
‘■the only standard," hence the major
can’t draw tho line, ’l he “job lash”
is conuinpiible, but it helps gain
success “the only standard." The I
unlawful and fraudulent election
m-thods of K ehmoiid county are a i
shame and di-grace to the country,
but they assure success and hence
the major condones, for “In politics,
the only standard is success.”
