One of the most Bitter Primary Fights
(Scrlppe News Association)
Savannah, Ga.. August 22. The Dem
ocratic primaries are held in this state to
day and with them ends one of the most
bitter and exciting political camoaiens
this state has ever known, Not since the
war has there been a race for the office
of governor in which so much bitterness
has been displayed and so much Dersonal
abuse has been practiced. There were
not less than five candidates: Hoke Smith,
former secretary of the interior in the
cabinet of Grover Cleveland; Clark How
ell, former speaker of the House and
former president of the senate of Georgia
and now a National Democratic committee
man and editor of the Atlanta Constitu
tion; Col. J. H. Estill, editor and owner
of the Savannah Morning News; Judge
Richard B. Russell, formerly of the Sup
erior Court, and Col. James H. Smith of

state. Hoke Smith was formerly the
owner of the Atlanta Journal 2nd that

the race hac-ii. nf if riu-lr witk fr V.
There always has been a great deal of
personal animosity between Hoke Smith
ana the Howells and for thirteen months
Smith and Clark Howell have fought a
bitter and vicious fight against each other.
Col. Estill did not enter the race until
about seven months ago. His organ Is
the Morning News, which he owns. Col.
Smith recently started a paper of his own
to present his platform to the people.
There have been only four Joint debates
during the campaign and it it not believed
that their influence will be felt by anyone
of the candidates. Hoke Smith has ooen-
ly charged thai the other candidates have
combined to defeat him. He declared
that their candidacy was merely a trick
of the state machine to bring about his
defeat, by preventing him from getting a
two thirds majority in the state conven

A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke, which
a child's finger could have stopped, to be
come a runinous break, devastating an
entire province of Holland. In like man
ner Kenneth Mclver, of Vanceboro, Me.,
permitted a little cold to go unnoticed
until a traggic finish was only averted by
Dr. King's New Discovery. He writes:
Three doctors gave me up to die of lung
inflamation, caused by a neglected cold.
but ur. King s new Discovery saved my
life." Guaranteed best cough and cold

Hoke Smith had the most radical ni.t-
form of any of the candidates. He stand.
for a law to keep the negroes from voting.
ne wants to take them out of Georgia
pontics by the North Carolina, the Miss
issippi or the South Carolina plan. He
worked this plank for all it was worth es
pecially in the country districts, while for
me cities he had another plank, demand
ing equitable railroad rates.
During the entire campaign Hoke Smith
has had the warm support of Thomas E
Watson, former Populist candidate for
President of the United States. There
are at least 20,000 Populists in
who worship Watson and will undoubtedly
follow his lead. They will cast their votee
for Smith if they can manage to get their
votes in the ballot boxes. '
Judge Russell has been running as the
poor man's candidate. He has a big

dom neglected to speak of it during his
campaign speeches. He has ten ortwelve
girls and one was born during the heat of
the campaign. In one of his speeches he
said that it would be ona of the proudest
moments of hie life, to parade his cotton-
gowned children up Peachtree Street to
the Governor's mansion.
Col. Estill made his second race for
governor. He ran four years ago and
was second in a field of three. His plat
form is short He stands for the consti
tution of the state and the enforcement of
the laws. It is not believed that he has
much show at the brimaries. However.
he may come in as "dark horse" in the
convention, which will be held in Septem
ber. In case none of the candidates
should secure sufficient delegates to con
trol two thirds of the total number, i
"dark horse" may be sprung upon the
convention and win the prize. Although
Hoke Smith's managers are hopeful, it is
by no means considered certain that he
will sesure the necessary number of dele
gates to control the convention. The
democratic state convention will meet in
Macon on September 4.
