grpssional District, Fayette
and Tipton would li-ivt been
at the mercy of Shelby.
The defeat of the Peeler
bill by the whiskey lobby in
the Tennessee legislature has
aroused the zeal and energy
of the advocates of prohibi
tion, judging from the num
ber of bills recently passed,
abolishing charters of towns.
The prohibition question
one in which the people of
our state are deeply interest
ed, and the indications are
that it will play an important
part in future elections.
Hardeman County will
remain a component part of
the Tenth Congressional Dis
trict for the next ten 3rears at
least. This information will
be a source of gratification to
a majority of the Democrats
of the county. Had it been
necessary for the good of the
party, Hardeman would have
willingly gone with the
Eighth, notwithstanding the
fact that we have but little
association and no business
transactions with the people
of that district, one of whose
counties lies beyond the Ten
nessee river but happily,
the Eighth did not need or
desire us. Senators Houston
and Tharp and Representa
tive Gordon rendered valua
ble assistance in retaining
Hardeman in the Tenth.
Hardeman County, when the re
districting bill was under considera
tion Wednesday in the State Senate,
was restored to the 10th Congress
ional District. It N understood
that Hardeman County people were
not favorable to the change. With
a good strong Democratic vote we
sec why the other part of the dis
trict could object, but it is beyond
us why Hardeman County should
protest at being put in a district
where she might be a potent factor
and where the able and ambitious
among her citizens might aspire to
congressional honors with some
prospect of success. We are inclin
ed to think Tipton would take a
transfer without any longings after
the flesh pots of Egypt. Covington
Our "able and ambitious"
can aspire to congressional
honors with as much pros
pect of success in the Tenth
as in any other district.
The bill abolishing the
charter of Bolivar has passed
and will take effect April
20th. The opponents of the
measure made a strong fight
in the Senate against it and
an effort in the House to de
feat it by attempting to attach
an amendment, which, had
it been adopted, would vir
tually have killed the bill.
But for the untiring efforts
of our Representative, Hon.
J: A. Foster, and our Sena
tor, Hon. J. C. Houston,
who acted in representative
capacities and carried out the
will of the majority, the bill
would have been defeated.
Quite a number of our citi
zens were deeply interested
in the fate of the bill and did
all in their power to secure its
passage, believing it to be for
tne nest interests or tne town. uaiuA stomach and Liver Tablets

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON LEGISLA
TION. We, your committee, appointed
by the President -of the Hardeman
County Farmers Institute, to in
vestigate and report to said body
upon the statutes presented and rec
ommended by the Committee on
Remedial Legislation, in its report
to the State Central Farmers' Insti
tute, at Nashville, Dec. 14th, 1900,
bcr leave to make the following
We approve of and recommend
that the following be enacted into
A statute appropriating to the
use of the Bureau of Agriculture
the surplus derived from the tax ou
fertilizer, after reimbursing the
state for all expenditures made in
behalf of the Bureau.
A statute providing for the trans
fer of the office of Commissioner of
Live Stock from the State Board of
Health to the Bureau of Agricul
ture. A statute prohibiting the entry
into the state of live stock to be
used for dairy or breeding purposes
without a clear bill of health be
shown, nothing contained therein
to impair in any way the state or
national quarantine regulations.
A statute for protection against
impure and adulterated food pro
A statute to secure the purity of
field and garden seeds.
Whereat, statute No. 3, "an act
to prevent dogs and bitches from
running at large or straying from
the premises of the owner," would
be too radical in its measure and
impracticable, without a complete
extermination of the dog; and be
lieviug that the dog is very esseu
tial on the farm as a guard to the
home, to assist in driving or catch
ing stock and to destroy the wild
animals that prey upon the fealh
ered tribe and upon the different
products of the field, therefore be it
l-' Resolved, That a statute be and
the same is hereby recommended in
lieu of the above, to tax all dogs 50

requiring all stock to be kept up,"
would not be inductive to the in
terests of the farmers of Hardeman
County, but in view of the fact that
the three wire fence does not afford
protection against small stock,
therefore be it
Resolved, That statute No. 5 be
so amended as to require all small
stock, such as hogs, sheep, goats,
calves, geese and all other notori
ously bad stock to be kept up. J
Whereas, statute No. 12, provid
ing for a new road law, or the
amendment of the present law, so
as to make it more satisfactory and
effective; and whereas the present
road law not having been duly and
impartially tried, and believing
with a few amendments the present
law would be practicable and effect
ive, therefore be it
Resolved, That section 2 of the
present road law be so amended as
to allow the public roads to be
worked any time during the year;
and that in section 4 it be expressed
that one day's warning before the
day set to work the road would be
a lawful and sufficient warning.

Tony Pasquella to be Tried.
Commercial Appeal. . . .
Antonio Pasquella, alias Collins,
was brought from the State Asylum
at Bolivar Monday and placed in
iatl to await further action by the
Crim.naICourU Tooy .g charge(
with the murder of Michael Destan-
8ua committed more than a year
Ilin victim was a fellow-coun
tryman, as ignorant as himself. To
ny bad had domestic troubles. His
young wife, whom he idolized, bad
forsaken him. It preyed upon his
mind to such an extent that he be
came morbid, sensitive, ana at
times, as thp evidence showed, de
mented. His companions did not
at all timi-s show the proper sympa
thy for Tony in his sorrows, and
were wont to joke him about his do
mestic grievances. Un the day of
the murder his victim had been
taunting him until, crazed with
grief and angered to desperation,
Tony seized a pole which was lying
within his reach and struck Destau-
gua on the head, inflicting injuries
from which he subsequently died.
Tony was arrested and charged by
the grand jury with murder. At
the trial it was shown by the testi
mony of the jailer, .the jail physi
cian and those who had kuown the
unfortunate man that he was sub
ject to fits of aberration. He was
found .o have been insane at the
time of the trial and was sent to the
asylum at Bolivar.
According to the statute the plea
of present insanity applies only to
the time of the commission of the
crime, and it is made the duty of
the superintendent of the asylum to
notify the attorney-general when
the patient has recovered. Pursu
ant to this provision Attorney-General
Yerger received notice a few
days ago that Tony had recovered,
and he directed the sheriff to return
him to this court for further pro
ceedings. He will probably be ar
raigned and tried for murder next
