some fancy to some parties will
mix their vote. They all know
what they are about and are not
half so green as the Sentinel sup-
poses. Bnt for the satisfaction of
the Sentinel it is fair to say that
the great mass of the party know
all this and went in to nominate
and win, and will be eminently
successful. The Sentinel is al-
ways crying about “primaries”
why do they not try the primary
another rattle ? Why are they de-
pending on trading with those of
whom they would rid themselves.
Methinks the Sentinel is of the
opinion that one experience is
enough in that line for them and
would like for the Democrats to
hold one so that a lot of G. O. Ps.
and U. L. Ps. could offer to vote
and get their company declined
and raise a big kick and get the
disappointed to follow them off.
See ? The Executive Committee
saw and was altogether too smart
to be caught in the trap. So they
called a convention and left the
balance to the wisdom of the peo-
ple whether they nominate or not,
whether one, two, three or all. In
their wisdom the people saw fit
to nominate all, and they display-
ed much more wisdom than the
Sentinel supposes too. Bnt it is
not conventions to which the Sen-
tinel is opposed, it is Democracy,
as the following item which he
copies from the great R. R. com-
panies organ shows. He argues
with anythingthat seeks to disrupt
the Democratic party:
Iu the sweet bye and bye it may
become necessary for a political
party to put up capable and relia-
ble candidates in order to secure
the support even of the members
of the party. It is not necessary
now, the only voter who may con-
trol the parties at all in such mat-
ters is the independent voter, aud
in most states they are but little
influenced by him. In thoroughly
party-ridden states there is no
such thing as individual freedom
or opinion exercised in selecting
officials. They are the product of
the machine.—[Dallas News. In
Sentinel of Uth. \
Because Gook and the railroad
bosses were defeated the News is
squealing, and trying to make the
impression that “ machine “ and
not the Democratic masses nomi-
nated the ticket headed by Hogg
on a platform declaring for a com-
mission and pledging the party to
the same. 'But the News and the
Sentinel seem to think “ no suck
thing as individual freedom ” was
“exercised” iu the selection of
the ticket or in committing the
party to commission. Bnt the
Southern Mercury says the “ peo-
ple ” were there, aud that “ the
only test of a man’s fealty to any
party is his compliance with the
voice of that party as expressed iu
convention. A»d the Democratic
party pledged her voters as much
a sa party can do, to the adoption
of the commission amendment.”
