THK TWO ELECTIONS GOLDBl'GISH.
The new proposed election law
provides for two elections one in
August for the election of State and
county officers, and the other at the
general election in November for
President and Congressmen. This
will be a heavy expense to the tax
payers of the State. Let's see if it
will not: When the last Legislature
passed a law to hold an election in
the State, giving the people a chance
to say whetner they wanted longer
and better public schools or net, the
Democratic papers squalled them
selves hoars and black in the face,
saying it would cost the dear tax
PAYER MORE THAN HE WAS ABLE TO
bear. Did they not ' Now what t
Why, these same howling papers
have become so generous that they
now want these same dear taxpay
ers to be taxed to hold an election,
not for the masses, but to put some
fellows in office give them some pie.
It was too bad to spend so much
money to hold an election to give the
poor children of the State larger and
better schools, but it is all right and
does not take too much money to
hold an election to put a few party
pets or pie hunters in office ! Yon
poor men who have to depend npon
the free schools to educate yonr chil
dren, can see the logic of this kind
of thing. It is an insnlt to yonr in
telligence. If the Legislature of '96
committed a crime in spending mon
ey to held an election for all the
children of the State, pray tell us
what this Legislature will commit in
spending money to hold an election
for the office seekeis T We.called at
tention to this in the last campaign,
and no Democratic lawyer would
dare attempt to answer he could
not do so before the people. In the
next campaign we will call attention
to it again, and the people will force
him to answer.
But let's see their logic for it: They
say they are going to separate the
State and national elections "to keep
Republican money from carrying the
State. Whatf Why, we thought
yon were going to disfranchise the
negroes so the Republicans could not
carry the State ! Now, if yon dis
franchise the ''nigger'' as yon say
yon are; if there are no more white
Republicans in the State than yon
have been claiming, and if there are
as many white men in yonr party as
yon claim, yon could carry the State
if every Populist in the State should
vote the Republican ticket, which we
know they will not do. Then why
Lare yon afraid of Republican money?

There is comfort in the knowledge
so often expressed, tbat Dr . Kilmer's
Swamp Roof-, the great kidney reme
dy fulfills every wish in curing rheu
matism, pain in the back, kidneys, liv
er, bladder and every part ot tbe urin
ary passage. It corrects inability to
hold water and scalding pain in pass
ing it, or bad effects following use o'
liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes
that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often during tbe day,
and to get up many times during th
night. Tbe mild and tbe extraordina
ry effect of Swamp Root is soon real
ized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing
cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. At druggists fif
