Sonne months ago, the Mayor of
McMinnville, Mr. D. B. Carson, had
some correspondence with Messrs.
Ingersoll & Peyton, of Knoxville,
with regard to putting in a water
works plant at McMinnville, men
tion of which was made through
these columns at the time. Mr, Car
son received a letter from Messrs.
Ingersol & Peyton a few days ago,
from which we take the following
"One day last week, we started Mr.
E. II.'Burlingame, a professional hy
draulic Engineer, to your city for the
purpose of examining your water
supply and location of your streets,
so that he might determine whether
it would pay his company to con
struct water work9 for your people.
On reaching Tullahoma Mr. Burlin-
gaine was informed that the city of
McMinnville whs so much in dvbt
that it could not stand additional taxa
tion for the purpose of paying
water rentals, and therefore did not
call on you. The information re
ceived by him may have been erone-
ous. If it turns out that your city is
able to pay water rentals, and is will
ing to pay a reasonable sum for that
purpose, we will send Mr. JJurlin
game back to see you, or send some
other Hydraulic Engineer."

gave Mr. Burlinghame the"informa-

Morford c Biles,
tion" as stated above lied wilfully
and maliciously. Never in the his
tory of McMinnville has it had one
dollar of bonded indebtedness, at the
present it has not a penny of floating
debt, but on the other hand has
money in bank to its credit, with
a goodly sum of yet uncollected taxes.
Every street in the town is well
graveled from one extremity of the
corporate limits to the other, and the
business portion of the town is well
lighted all night with electric lights.
We have a system of city schools un
surpassed by any other town in Ten
nessee, which are open ten months in
the year. (The colored school has
been suspended during the last ses
sion on account of the destruction of
the building by fire, but a new build
ing will be erected during the com
ing summer, and the city treasury
will have the cash to pay for it.)
There are some people at Tullaho
ma, we know not who they are nor
do we care to know, who seem to
make it their special business to
watch at the depot there for strangers
enroute to McMinnville, and use ev
ery means in their power to prevent
them lrom coming here, and they
scruple at no falsehood or misrepre
sentation to accomplish this object.
They never approach any one who
has ever been to McMinnville, and
knows anything of the place, know
ing that with such persons their tis
sue of lies would avail nothing.
Our sprightly neighbor, Tullaho
ma, deserves much credit for its con
tinued growth under many discour
aging circumstances. The place has
many enterprising, public spirited
citizens who are an honor to the
town, but it has some idling, busy
body liars who bring reproach and
injury upon their own town by the
methods they pursue toward MC'
Messrs. Ingersoll A Peyton may
send on another engineer, but we ad
vise them to flnd'ti man for the next
trip who is not soft enough to believe
anything he hears at Tullahoma re
Tribute of Respect.
Whereas, It has pleased the om
nipotent Grand Master to call from
earthly labor to eternal refreshment
the soul of our beloved brother,
Mortimer Augustus Doty, the acting
Tyler of his lodge, and
Whereas, During the greater por
tion of his life and unto the time of
his death his love for the order of
Free and Accepted Masons and prac
tice of the generous and glorious prin
ciples of the same, has been a lesson
to his surviving brethren, and
Whereas, His brethren of War
ren Lodge No. 125, do deeply and
sincerely deplore his loss, and truly
und tenderly cherisn his memory,
therefore Be it Itesolved,
1, That we accept this visitation of
sorrow with bowed hearts and spirits,
resigned to the will of our Heavenly
Father who doetli all things well.
2, That we cherish his memory as
a dutiful, zealous and faithful man
and Mason, prompt in the execution
of every duty and true to the glorious
teachings of our mystic ritual.
3, That our Tyler's sword, the im
plement he honorably carried by
pro tempore oppointment for so many
years under circumstances to be fully
appreciated only by members of the
lodge, be draped in mourning and
that we, his brethren, wear the usual
badge of sorrow for 3 days.
1, That our tenderest sympathy
and sincere condolence are hereby
tendered to the sorrow stricken fami
ly whose hearts are crushed with this
5. That a corv of these resolutions
be spread upon the minutes of the ALBERT SEITZ,
lodge, a copy furnished his family,
and that a memorial page in our min
ute book,suitably ornamented and en
grossed, be dedicated to his memory.

have suffered greatly from freshets
and floods this week. The ill-fated
town of Johnstown has had a flood
most equal to the great disaster there
a year or more ago, only this one
came more slowly, and gave the peo

but many houses were destroyed, and
