The Democia'io mas meeting to be
holden on Saturday should be one of
the largest ever held in Shelby county.
We ere on the eve of important coun
ty election, end the Democracy ol
Shelby county should turn out and by
their enthusiasm and numbers strike
terror to the enemy, which we can de
feat we have defatted by over
whelming majorities. The object of
the meeting is fully disclosed in the
call of the Executive Committee. But
In addition to tho duty of selecting
delegates to the State Convention, the
Demo:rtcy of Shelby county will, in
no uncertain voloe, proclaim iti choice
BS io a candidate for Governor. It
would be an insult to the true ind re
liable Democrats of the county to en
gag In the superlative work of pledg
ing themsel vf s to support the nominee
for Governor. With this determine
, tion prominently in view, the Demo
crats of Shelby county will send a ms
sage to tholr party friends la every
part of the Slato that their distin
guished fellow citizen, Cul. Robert F.
Xooney, is a man every way qualified
to discharge the duties of the ofllce of
Governor; a Pemooiat who bas ren
dered efficient service to his party ; a
cltiren capable, honest, able and every
way qualified, and having fall con
fidence in his ittegrlty and ability to
give the people of the Stste a pure,
wise and economical administration,
our delegates will be lneti noted t J sup
port him forthe nomination, Tho Tren
ton Herald forcibly says : " West Ten
nostee his had but two Govornors
since the organization of the Sta'e. In
the person of Col. R. F. Looney, West
TenntHsee presents an excellent man,
and one who is able and worthy, and
as ho is the only aspirant from this
portion of the State it does teem that
West Tennessee ought ti vo'e as a
unit for him." As to the paculiar fit
nets of Col. Lconsy for Governor of
Tennessee there can be but one opin
ion, and West Tennessee should join
Shelby connty in urging his nomina
tion. Tbe higher t service which the
Democracy of Shelby can render the
party it to present the name of Col,
Looney to the Stito Conventional"

they wilf dt it Nor is this feelirg

sly 'every .poUnty west of the Tennessee
rivet, and from many counties in Mid
dle Tennessee, we have the tame story
that the people prefer Col. Looney to
any candidate who has been men

Exposition building on Saturday next
be the advance guard of an uprising
of tbe people which will make Col.

Amorg the most valuable resources
of the South is its timber. It is said
that red-hot stoves were stolen duiing
the war, but It was inconvenient for
freebooters and plunderers to rob the
forest of its valuable timber, and
hence this was one of the few things
of va'ue left the Southern people.
They have not extensively engaged in
the lumber business sites tho war,
and they find themselves suddenly
and unexpectedly rich in tbe treaa
urea of their foretts. Half a century
ago Maine engaged profitably in the
lumber trade. But the supply of tim
ber was exhausted long since, and for
more than a score of years the pine
lands of Michigan, Wisconsin and
Minnesota have been tbe main reli
ance of tbe country. Like thoco
of Maine, these .have been ci
naustei. ine logging days 01 these

Bottlers bleed when they r cur to tb

or cot it down and burned it w itb other
timber to get rid of it If they bad saved
the walnut timber thus destroyed
it wculd now be worth five times aa
rru.h as the land on which it grew.
There Is still great wea'th left to tbe
people of the South in the p avWon
of the black walnut, which is a pro

that he has been captured by the

that there is not any truth in the ru

"no local assembly of the Knights of

Board of tho District will be called in

that I publ c'y desi ribed Mr. Glad

decline to withdraw them, because I

be necessary before the question on
be settled. "The only way," con
tinues the paper, "in wnich the prob

of continued Irish repreteutation
in the Imperial Par.iament. Probably
there may be more coercion before the
Irish secure home ru e by tbe consent
ot the British Government. If they
are patien, however, the question
will be settled in a year or two. The
danger is now if that during the in
terval coercion ahould be resorted to
it would be met by outrage. To tbat
challenge of strength there would le
a savage and rero'ute response."
