How facts of history do dissipate
some of the fondly cherished stories
about the early life of our great men!
It is positively asserted now that
Lincoln never did split any rails
when he was a boy. We shouldn't
wonder if it were proven after a
while that Washington never did tell
that lie about the cherry tree.
One feature of the liriceviiie min
ing troubles is now before the courts
for settlement. The State Board of
Prison Inspectors recently visited the
Briceville region, condemned the
mine at that place, and ordered the
convicts removed. The company
operating the mine has now filed a
bill in Chancery to enjoin the State
from removing the convicts.
The Chattanooga Press of last
Wednesday prints the names of more
than seventy-five Chattanoogans
whose wealth is expressed in seven
figures, or in other words, who are
millionaires, all of which has been
accumulated through the thriving in

tariff, however, it is simply a huge
The numerous contradictory state
ments regarding Mr. Blaine's health,
also widely divergent statements as

by newspaper correspondents simply
for the purpose of creating prejudice

agitators have been traveling over
the State and working off regular
bluff game interviews on papers
with a leaning toward the incipient

worked up in the Coal Creek region,

This meeting will be national in its
character, and is the outgrowth of the
anti-subtreasury Alliance convention
held at Fort Worth, Texas, some
months ago, or rather is to be held in
accordance with resolutions passed at
the Fort Worth meeting. Circulars
containing the call for the meeting
are now beine: distributed, and we
quote therefrom the following para,
"This meeting, as will be seen from
the Fort Worth resolutions, is a pro
test on the part of the lovers of the
Constitution of the Alliance against
seeing that Organization prostituted
by a body of men who have no inter
est in tanning and whose love foi the
Organization is limited by the
amount of personal gain they can get
out of it. This is an effort on the part
of the conservative members and real
farmers of our Order to emancipate
the Farmers' Alliance from the con
trol of scheming politicians and de
signing demagogues. That we will
succeed in this etiort we entertain no
PREPARING FOR BATTLE. .
The Young Men's Democratic Club
of Nashville has taken the initiative
in a fight which we believe wi'.l and
should extend to every county and
every civil district in Tennessee. It
is a fight between straight Democracy
and the Alliance. It is simply idiotic
for any man to claim to be an Alliance
Democrat. He might with just as
much reason and sense lay claim to
the title of Republican Democrat.
People's Party Democrat, or Third
Party Democrat. The Alliance, as
now organized, operated and con
trolled in Tennessee is nothing else
than a secfet political society, un
democratic in its very existence, and
anti-democratic in all of its work,
movements ana designs. JNo man
who clings to the Alliance can be
given full credit in Democratic con
ventions next year. He is bounvl to
be false either to the Alliance or to
the Democracy. A man can no
more be a true Alliance man and good
Democrat at tho same time than he
could be a stalwart Republican and a
straight Democrat, and the man who
hasn't got back bone enough about
him to come out openly and above
board and declare himself boldly for
either the Alliance or the Democracy,
is not to be trusted by either side,
and more over he wont be trusted in
Democratic conventions next year
The suggestion of the Young Men's
Democratic Club of Nashville for
open organization of the Democrats
is timely, and we believe the 'Demo
crats all over the State will respond
Following is the committee report
adopted by the Nashville Club last
" e, the undersigned members of
the committee on Democratic organi
zation appointed at the last regular
meeting of this club beg leave to re
"First, that it recommend that this
club take whatever steps may be
necessary to become a member of tho
National League of Democratic
Clubs in accordance with an invita
tion to that effect heretofore extended.
"Second, that It is also important,
in view of the political conditions
peculiar to our own State, that steps
be taken to perfect an organization to
preserve the integrity of the ' Demo
cracy of Tennessee. Your committee
has thought it proper that this club
and other purely Democratic organi
zations should take notice of the fact
that a secret political organization
hostile to the Democratic party In its
principles and in its methods Is seek
ing to control the Democratic party
In Tenneasee. We believe that this
club should not only pronounce
against the political heresies of such
organization, but that it should place
the seal of its condemnation upon all
secret political societies as are in their
nature and Inevitable tendency hos
tile to the very spirit of our free in
stitutions, essentially undemocratic,
unrepublican, and unamerican. We
believe that this secret organization
of men of all political faiths for the
purpose of controlling the Democratic
party should be opposed by an open
organization of Democrats for the
purpose of saving the Democratic
party. As we believe that an ex
clusive organization of particular
classes for political purposes is in
itself hostile to the first principles of
Democracy, we believe that the or
ganization we suggest should embrace
men of all classes and vocations,
making no other test than that of
Democracy, by which we mean
fidelity to the principles of Demo
cracy. our committee has not
thought it proper at this time to do
more than suggest the general pur
pose of the organization, leaving the
details to be settled upon future con
sideration by the club if the commit
tee's report be satisfactory.

Death of Mrs. Polk.
Mrs. James K. Polk, wife of the
tenth President of the United States,
died at Polk Place in Nashville at
7:30 o'clock, Friday morning, Aug.
14, lacking only 20 days of being 88
years of age. -
un sunaay morning ner remains
were laid to rest in the tomb on the
premises of Polk Place, beside those
of her distinguished husband, who
died June 15, 1849.
We clip the following brief sketch
of the deceased from the American:
Mrs. Polk was Sarah Childreas. She
was born near Murfreesboro, Ruther
ford, County, Tnn., Sept. 4, 1803,
ana was me aaugnter oi Joel and
Elizabeth Childress. Her father,
farmer In easy circumstances, sent
her to the Moravian Institute at Sa
lem., N. C, where she was educated
On returning home she married Mr
Polk, who was then a member of the
Legislature of Tennessee. The lol
lowing year he was elected to Con
gress, and during his fourteen ses
sions in Washington Mrs. Polk's
courteous manners, sound judgment
and many attainments gave her
high place in society. On her return
as the wife of the President, having
no children Mrs. Polk devoted her
self entirely to her duties as mistress
of the White House. She held week
ly receptions, and abolished the cus
torn of giving refreshments to the
guests. She also forbade dancing as
out of keeping with the character of
these entertainments. In spite of her
reforms, Mrs. Polk was extremely
Mrs. Polk became a communicant
of the Presbyterian Church in 1S34
and maintained her connection with
that denomination until her death
Since the death of Mr. Polk she has
resided constantly in Nashville in

They Are Getiing Out Fast.
Stantonville Union, of McNairy
county, has Withdrawn from the
County Alliance. A member, writ
ing to his county paper, gives the
reason. He says that when thev loin-
ed, they were told that they would
not be required to surrender any re-
gious or political principle, and they
were assured that it was in no sense
u religious or political body, but since
the adoption of the St. Louis and
cala platforms, they find political
principles adopted, and as every Al-
iance man is expected to subscribe to
them if he remains in the order, they
politely stepped down and out.
