Mr. E. A. I)aniel, a young, yet
popular lawyer, an able speaker and
a democrat of democrats, of Wash
ington, wa9 the guest of the Bryan
and Kitchin Club of this town last
Friday night and addressed the Club
and the public, a large number be
ing present, at the Court House at 8
o'clock, making a strong, able and
unanswerable argument in favor of
The speaker went back to the
early history of democracy, declaring
that it was born in the garden of
Eden, in beautiful words he review
ed the record of that party as a ptrty
of the people, for the people aud by
the people. In no uncertain terun
did he denounce the 1'epublican
party as the party of monoHlies and
trusts and combines.
lie gave more than one illustra
tion of how giant combines had been
formed under the protection of the
Hepublican party and its high tariff
policy, while small industries had
been crushed out of existence.
Mr. Daniel is a line speaker, well
informed in National as well as State
politics, aud he did mueh good for
the cause of Democracy in our town
where he will always find a hearty
Democrats are Organized.
On Friday night last a good, sub
stantial Democratic Club was orga
nised at Allen school house, on the
Acre road. It was here that was
heard the voice of that Christian
farmer. Elder N. II. Harrison, plead
ing the cauge of the party of equal
rights and justice to all man-kind.
Me. W. a, Davenport and others
made short talks to the Club.
On Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock
Mayor S. B. Spruill, of this town,
iu hia able and logical way, spoke to
the Club at Creswell, which he went
there to organize. Not liking iu
eloquence or power of oratory this
hero of Demociacy whose voice has
been heard iu every campaigu since
the dark dayi of reconstruction, not
eiily iu Washington county, but
throughout the State, preached the
true tried doctrinesof Democracy on
this occasion, and united factions of
his party as no other man could do.
While Mr. Spruill differs withjsome
on moral questions he lays aside all
such, declaring that, be they divid
ed as they may ou moral questions,
democrats should stand solidly unit
ed against the party which threatens
the rights and liberties ot the masses
hi favor of a few.
At the same hour in Skiuuersville
township, at Norman's school house,
Mr. W. M. Bond, Jr., organic d
and addressed a Democratic (Jlub.
This talented young lawyer in llighis
of eloquence, held his hearers spel
bound while he rearmed with them
upon the impprtauce of standing by
the old Democratic ship launched
and commanded by Thos. Jefferson,
that has lived through the stormy
sens of time, to see one after another
of its faithful captains and crews go
down, until to-day the old ship is
seen riding the crest of the highest
wave of political popularity under
command of William J. Bryan, with
sails set ready to enter that haven of
political rest, there to scuttle theold
liepublicun barge aud let it sink.
At the same hour the Democrats
of Leo's Mills township met at Ito
per and organized a club which was
addressed by our able young towns
man, Van 13. Martin, Esq., one of
the next Senators from the Second
district. That Vau Martin preach
ed Democracy goes without saying.
Able, eloquent and forcible were his
arguments in defense of the people's
cause. In the hall where he met
defeat ds a candidate for Represen
tative and where, iu the face of de
feat he swore his allegiance to the
Democratic party and its nominees,
it was here ou Staurday he stood as
the choice ot his party for the Sen
Hte, and by his words and power of
speech he gave evidence of the fact
that the party had made no mistake
iu placing its banner in his keeping.
At Acre Chapel on Wednesday
night last a large and enthusiastic
number of Democrats met" to orga
nise a club, but after consulting to
gether they decided to join the one
at Allen School House. Mr. N. H.
Harrison addressed the meeting also
Mr. van. B. Martin, both made very
strong, practical speeches.
Thus it is that the Democracy of
Washington county is organized.
Now to work until the going down
of the sun on Nov., 3rd. Work, so
that the going down of that sun
may also mean the going down of
the Republican party.

very feeble, is deriviug so much benefit

Mr. J. A. Sexton while "rambling" a
piece of timber on the Beaofort county
side of the "dismal," yesterday, steped on
a very largo "Poplar-Leaf" snake. The
growth was so th-rok that it required some
little time for Mr. Sexton to ascertain jus.
what was Under his foot, but when he did
so, he lost no time iu finding another place
to staud. His rubber boot protected mm
from the bite, whioh would probably have
been fatal, as this is one of our very poison
ous snakes, being more dreaded even than
the beautiful, but dangerous Diamond
Battle Snake of the Southern States. It
gets its local name from its fancied resem
blance to a dead poplar leaf. Its common
name is Copper -Head, or Moccasin-Snake
