Tillman’s Monroe Speech.

The speech which Senator Ben (Pitchfork) Tillman delivered to Monroe last Wednesday evening did not make a favorable impression. Here is what Editor Dawkins, of the Monroe News, says of it:

He chose as his subject “The Race Question,” but his hearers go no new ideas. Too much of his talk was about himself, and the intense bitterness of sentiment manifested robbed his speech of its value.

The Senator is rugged and vehement, exhibiting but little regard for the proprieties of chaste society or for the feelings of his audience. He is a man of native ability, possessing force and courage. He will make himself heard and felt by any assemblage.

The news believes vehement bitter speeches like that delivered by the Senator last night do vastly more harm than good. They arouse hatreds, prejudices, resentments and keeps alive sectional animosities. There is no race question in the South; the white man is in the saddle where he is going to stay. There is no disposition to dismount and get upon civil and social equality with the negro. There is, however, a labor question here, but it is being solved by the movement which is steadily in progress of the negroes to the North. Recent events show that as the negro goes North and northern people learn by contact with him his true character, his weaknesses and his faults, they change their opinions to the southern view; but our northern fellow citizens, we hear are going to have more trouble with the negro than the South has ever had, and before adjusting that trouble they will have to learn many things the southern people knew long ago.

Kentucky has for years been in “bad odor” on account of the many murders committed and desperate feuds that have existed there.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness , and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restores to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous services. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness caused by catarrh that cannot be cured by Hall’s Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O. Sold by druggists 75c  Hall’s Family Pills are the best.
