Our State Constitution.
The experience ol every year gives
additional emphasis t the need of
revision of our state constitution. The
convention of 1870 was a distinguish
ed deliberative body of men, which
included a number ot tne ablest and
most eminent citizens of Tennessee
but the work ot that convention was
done at a time when the conditions
were the most unfavorable to the
framing: of a permanent code of
fundamental law. Our present con
stitution was adopted in the transi
tion period, between the confusion
nnd misrule which followed the war
and the fuller and better adjustment
of affairs which came by steady de
velopment alterwards. That the
constitutionalc onvention contribu
ted greatly to the restoration
order and harmonyof govc
ment goes without saying
and the men who composed that con
vention deserves much credit. But
an instrument intended to ' embody
the essential and foundation rules
and principles of government, whic!
was framed at a time when there was
much that was uncertain and prob
lematical in the outcome of affairs
does not fully meet the requirements
of developments twenty years later.
Many of the difficulties with which
our statute-makers have to contend
in our day could and should be re
moved by a wise revision of the con
stitution. This revision must come
soon or late, and it is the suggestion
of wisdom and prudence that this
work be not too long deferred.

The flings made at your Uncle
Grover Cleveland by republican
speakers only show that they consid
er him the most formidable antago
nist inthe way in their effort to retain
control of the presidency. Mr.
Cleveland can well stand the criti
cisms of his political enemies, for his
administration was a clean one and
an able one, and his course since his
retirement from the presidency has
been that of a dignified and patriotic
citizen who, while he does not affect
personal unimportance, does not
thrust himself upon attention of the
country. It is true he' is 1 frequently
called before the public,' but this is
due to his popularity' and to the pub
lic recognition of his ability and
force of character. 1
