be if alley in iu tuo THE DEMOCRATS OF SCflEYEH. A BUu tttrtlnf of Sturdy Citizen LUten to DnBlgnon uid Morgan gjlvaaia Ga. July 16 -Special -The democratic rally was a big day for the democratic party In Screven The third party received tremendous blows at the hands of able expounders of democracy. It was announced through the county paper that there would be a basket picnic in Bylvania and everybody was invited. The weather could not have been more favorable. Add to this five hundred or more democratic wives and daughters whose beautiful patriotism and intense love of democracy brought them together and you hare an occasion calculated to inspire a true southern m&n The most conservative estimate of the total number present is fifteen hundred some say two thousand And better speeches delivered it has never been the writer's good fortune to hear Colonel Tom Morgan and Hon Fleming duBignon of 8a\aunah were the speakers. Mr. Morgan spoke first For more than an hour in the open air he held the va t audience perfectly still. It was a magnificent speech After an intermission of a few moments Mr dnBignon spoke And such a speech it was. The name of duBignon is familiar to eVefy one In Screven and when he arose he was greeted with tremendous and prolonged applause After silence had been restored he entered into a masterly discussion of the political situation No sketch or pen picture could do Mr duBignon justice His argument was convincing his language chaste and beautiful his articulation faultless and his orator matchless and sublima After dinner the. democratic party met in mass meeting to nominate a representa tive and to select delegates to the guberna- tjDrfeS congressional and senatorial conventions warn melted as follows For Kepresentahve Causey Overstrect Delegates to the Gubernatorial Convention Johft C DeH T W Oliver Jr John R Humphries J.
