RrFEitnixG to the indecent haste
manifested by the republicans in ad-
mitting new states the Philadelphia
Times points to a conspiracy as fol-
lows: No one doubts that this rapid in-
crease of pocket States is dictated
solely by what is accepted as su-
preme political necessity. The party
that elected Harrison in 1888 accepts
the fact that the States which gave
him his electoral majority in defiance
of an adverse popular majority of
nearly 100000 would not elect a
Republican President in 1892; and
being unable to trust the considerate
judgment of the people the Electoral
College must be packed by pocket
States to save a distrusted party
and the Senate of the United States
must be packed by pocket-State
Senators to check the people when
they elect a hostile House of Repre-
sentatives. It would be a fitting and merited
act on the part of the Southern peo-
ple if a movement could be inaugura-
ted for the purpose of erecting a
monument to the memory of Samuel
Jackson Randall m affectionate grat
itude and appreciation of the lasting
service he rendered the South in its
darkest hour and sorest need when
the republican fire-eating fanatics
and bigots of the North were trying
to secure our complete humiliation
and subjugation by means of what
is now known in history as the infa-
mous Force Bill.
One of the most unjust measures
pending in congress is the one pro-
posing a tax on cottonseed oil or

And what makes the matter exasper-
ating is that the Southern people
don't seem to have enough sense to
know where their own interests lie.
