The proceeeings of the Senatorial committee were closely watched here by a few who are expecting lightning to strike then sooner or later. The Senatorial committee de cided on a straight primary for the nomination of candidate to represent this district. Prima ries always give more general satisfaction than conventions. Congressman (?) Roberts of Utah has been ordered to step uuwu oua uuu u tan must ievm she cannot over-ride public sentiment and legal enactments by sending a polygamist to sit in the Council-chamber of the na tion. It will not be tolerated. Hon W. J. Samford captures the crowd everywhere he goes There is no taller gubernatorial timber in the State. He has promised to visit Cullman in the near future. He is one of the most elequent speakers we have, and his record as a public man is pure. The Morgan-Johnston contest seems to be on the order of "lay on McDuff, and cursed be he who cries hold on, enough." Johnston's reply to Morgan's first letter did not benefit his cause, since he disproved no al legations, and provoked a yet more scathing reply from Sena tor Morgan. The recent elec tion in Clark county shows how the tide is flowing. Mutual re criminations are undignified and possess neither logic or persuasive influence. Facts are stubborn thing, and are more effective than misrepresencation or vituperation. These "lyddite" hells are truly offensive imple aients of warfare on the politi cal field. RAILROAD UO KB INKS. Senator Morgan deserves the gratitude of all citizens of our nation for a bill recently; intro duced by him in Congress, mak ing the forma.iom of any combination in restraint of trade a fel ony , or at least, a misdemeanor. It is lo be hoped that all patriotic congressmen who have at heart the true interests of their coun try and its people, will unite with him in the enactment of this measure. The multimillionaires who own and control the principal lines of railroads, "like Aaron's rod, would swallow up the rest," until like a monster python, they have the whole transporting trade of the country in their coils. They are buying, consolidating and controlling one line after another until having destroyed all competition they set their own rates, raisiug the freight to the utmost limit the trafic will bear. This would cripple the internal commerce of the country to an incalculable ex tent. With the present rates, millions of dollars worth of pro duce is wasted annually because the cost of freight prevents it being sent to market. Millions of bushels of fruit that would be a welcome boon in the sections where they do not grow, rot on their native soil because it dons not pay to ship them. Railruads facilitate trade and are a blessing to the people when properly ', managed, but when controlled by corporations whose only ob ject is to make money . on the necessities of others they are oppressive. The brakes must be put on, and this is what Senator Morgan is working for. Success to him, ane let all the people say amen. THE NEW RAILROAD. Papers have been filed in the Secretary of State's office by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, which are preliminaries to what will be one of the leading industrial developments of the yrar in Alabama. The road will ruu from Phelan, four miles south of of here, iu a southerly direction through Walker and Jefferson counties to Bessemer, making connection with the Birmingham Mineral Road. The distance of this new road will be seventy-five miles. The Louisville & Nashville already have a direct line from the gulf to Selma. This leaves a gap of forty miles between Selma and Blockton, and for this gap a survey is being taken, and when this road is completed there will be a direct route from the rich coal fields of North Alabama to the gulf, which will develop an immense area, heretofore without transportation. Books of subscription to the capital stock of this road will be opened here on March 5, 1900. PUBLIC ULXDU. Congressman Brewer has presented a bill that proposes to devote all the unsold lands in the State to the interests of our common schools, and surely they could be put to no better use than to aid in putting the opportunity for education within reach of many of those who need it most and are unable to pay for it. It is commendable as tending to raise the standard of intelligence and make better citizens. Then it is a just and impartial measure that commends itself alike to all, and points the way to remove the reproach of illiteracy from our state. We hope all the moral influence of the press will back Mr Brewer and that he will be ably seconded by his col leagues. General Wheeler is coming home. If he will not claim his seat in Congress, bui come to Alabama and ask the suffrage of bis constituent", they will give him as enthusiastic and unanimous an endorsement as they did two years r o, and then the congressional kickers will have their guns spiked by little Joe and his friends. JOHN RTJSKIN. The recent death of Ruskin has removed one of the brigb est literary stars of the present en-tury from the firmament of et ters, which he has illumine ted and adorned so long. As a ma: ter of the English language and an exquisite word painter he las scarcely had his peer in the pies ent generation, more, perhaps, man to instil the elements He has dine than any otter of beauty and a yearning for thfem into the common place scenes everyday life. He sought ea -n-estly to elevate the tastes i nd aspirations of the laboring cla ;s- es, and while his ideas were visionary and impractical to realized, in existing social con ditions, they left a deep impress and did much to uplift and fine many human lives that lad been groveling and colorUss, Some day the seed be sowed will bear frail. of A. COTTOH FACTORY. An exchange says Pulaski, Tenn., Is going to have a cotton factory, and her citizens have subscribed 110,000 to induce a company who are seeking a location, to place their plant in Pulaski. Now Cullman is about as large as Pulaski and just as eligible a site for a factory, more so indeed, for more and better cotton is raised in this section than in Giles County, Tenn. If our citizens could be induced to appreciate the substantial advantages that would accrue to town and county from the establishment of such an industry in our midst they would surely be eager to invest in an enterprise that would yield such handsome returns. It would add to our pop ulation, increase the volume of trade and afford a lucrative home market for farmers' produce. Who will opet the ball? SaUIRg S. H. HEKRIN. In placing the name of 'Squire S. H. Herrin before the people as a candidate for Tax Assessor of Cullman county last week we failed to say, subject to the action of the democratic party, in the primary election April 14th next, which we learn has raised the question as lo what party he is subject. In this matter we are like J. B Brown, Esq. In several of the announcements it is very neces sary for them to say to whai ticket they belong, but as to 'Squire Herrin, his affiliations and party labor in the democratic ranks has been so true and long standing that he is too wjll known to place or even try to place him anywhere else, only with the democratic party. He is one man that can't, be persuaded off.. MAJOR HIRAM ADKINS. Major Hiram Adkins has au thorized us to announce him as candidate for Sheriff of Cull man county subject, of course, to the action of the Democratic party. There is, perhaps, no man in the county who is more couipe tent or better qualified for this office than Major Adkins. Having held the office of Sheriff, he is thoroughly acquainted with the duties of the office. He also has a splendid official record as U. S. Deputy Marshal to refer to. But the record he most delights to point to is his life-long record as a Democrat. He has labored un- tireingly in the party's ranks for many years and has never mur mured or shirked a duty. There isn't a more deserving man in the party, and if he is ever to receive any reward for his faith fulness, now is the time. . DR. CARL HENCKJJLX Dr. Henckell announces, this week, his candidacy for the office of Board of Revenue for the First District. Dr. Henckell has been a citizen of Cullman for many. years and u well and favorably known throughout the county. He was appointed Circuit court clerk to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles Grafton in 1896, which position he filled with dredit to himself and'accept- ably to the people. As to his fitness for the office he now seeks there can be no doubt in view of his official record and personal standing. He is a good citizen and would make a splendid mem ber of the County Board.
