I wish to say to my friends, and
to democrats generally, over th
state, that I will not be a candi
date before the democratic conven
tion of next year for the nomination
of governor. Although it is jj. good
while yet before the party will be
called on to nominate a candidate
still, in view of the activity of geu
tlemen eeskins the place, it seems
necessary for me to decline the con
test entirely or to enter into an ac
tive struggle for the nomination
which would probably continue for
nearly a year. My taste, feeling
and inclinations are such that I can
not make a personal canvass for this
It is one thing to consent to the
use of my name as a candidate and
quite another to enter into a rea
fight for the place and to make per
sonal appeals to friends and demo
crats generally for their support. J
have never entertained any "cher
ished ambition" to hold this high
office, while being willing to serve
my state in any honorable capacity
for which I might be deemed suited.
I have therefore determined, upon
mature reflection, that I canDot go
into this fight in the way that ap
pears necessary in order to win the
nomination. I prefer the post of
a private citizen, and I hope my
friends will not regard me as too
selfish if I follow my own inclina
tion in this matter.
It was with much hesitation and
reluctance that I yielded to the de
mands of my friends some weeks
ago and permitted them to say that
1 would stand for this nomination.
1 am now convinced that was a mis
take and recall that consent at this
early date, so that, if it be desirable,
they can takecounsu and put out
another candidate before the cam
paign really begins.
I trust the course I have deemed
it proper to pursue will not cause
any serious disappointment to any
of my friends. I am not unmindtul
of them. I feel that this course is
the best for them as well as for my
self. Knowing my situation and
environment better than they do, I
must be permitted to decide this
question for myself and for them
also, so f.ir as I am concerned.
In conclusion, I wish to express
my thanks and gratitude to my many
friends throughout the state who
have so generously tendered me
their support for this very exalted
I am most respectfully,
W. H. Swiggart.
Union City, TenD., Sept. 16.
Ex-Gov. Taylor Weds.
Tuscaloosa, Ala., Sept. 23.
Former Governor Robert L. Taylor,
of Tennessee, and Mrs. Alice Fitts
Hill, of Montgomery, were married
iu Christ church, this plaee, at 4
o'clock this afternoon, in the pres
ence of a few relatives and friends.
Gov. and Mrs. Taylor left at once
for Louisville and otber places, after
which they will be at home in Kuox
ville, Tenn., until October 15, when
Gov. Taylor begins his lecture tour.
The marriage was set for January
next, but Gov. Taylor came down
Saturday to visit Mrs. Hill before
ehe left for a six weeks' trip to Cal-
ifornia, and last night the tongue,
on whose eloquence bo many have
hung, persuaded Mrs. Hill to forego
the trip to the sunny shores of San
Francisco and become Mrs. Taylor
The courtship and marriage of
Gov. Taylor and Mrs. Hill have a
touch of the romantic in it, as the
gallant groom has been paying Mrs.
Hill attention for only about two or
three months, and their marriage,
as stated above, was set for January
next. Gov. Taylor is well beloved
by the people of Alabama, as well
as those of Tennessee. Mrs. Taylor
is a daughter of Hon. Jas. II. Filts,
treasurer of the State University,
and a wealthy banker of this place.
She was a favorite in the social cir
cles of Montgomery, where she has
resided ever since her first marriage
Congress will Pay the Bills.
Congress will make special pro
vision for the payment of the phys
icians and surgeons who attended
the late President McKinley at Buf
falo and for the payment of his fun
eral expenses. This was the course
pursued after the death of Presiden
Garfield. What these expenses wil
amount to in the case of President
McKinley cannot be stated even ap
proximately, as none of the bills
have yet been sent in.
In the case of President Garfield
Congress appropriated in all $57,
500. Or this amount $3o,500 was
for the payment of the physician
and $22,000 funeral expenses. The
total expenses in the case of Presi
dent McKinley will probably be
fully as great, for though the bills
of the physicians will not be so large
as they were in the case ol rresi
dent Garfield, who lingered for
more than two months after he was
shot, the expenses of the funeral are
expected to be larger, lhe princi
pal item, as in the case of Garfield
will be for railway transportation
This will include the special train
which brought the funeral party
from Buffalo to Washington, the
special train of three sections which
carried the party to Canton and the
special train of five sections back to
Congress not only paid President
Garfield's funeral expenses, but also
made liberal provision for Mrs
Garfield. She was paid her hus
band's salary for the remainder of
the vear. was given a pension o
$5,000 a year for the remainder o
her life, and was given the franking
privilege, by which she can use the
mails without the payment of post
age. Mrs. McKinley will certainly
be treated with equal liberality.
A Shocking Calamity.

Kellett. of Wiiliford. Ark. "His

The Late President's Estate.
In view of the exaggerated reports
of the amount of insurance policies
on President McKinley's life an au
thoritative statement was made the
other day by one of the late Presi
dent's friends in New York City.
He said :
"It isn't necessary to mention my
name, but all President McKinley's
friends in Washington will under
stand who is speaking, lhe exact
amount of President McKinley's
policies is $67,000, and not a penny
more. Of this amount $50,000 was
carried by the New York Life Insu
rance Company, of which John A
McCall is president, lhe remain
ing $17,000 was carried by smaller
companies. This statement is abso
utely correct in every particular.
President JMcUall was lor many
years a warm personal friend of Mr.
McKinley, though not always in
political affiliation witn him. lie
was a friend of President Cleveland
and Gov. Hill. In 1896, however,
he came out strong for McKinley,
and he has been a McKinly man in
every fiber ever since.
With Mrs. McCall, Mr. McCall
has been the guest of President and
Mrs. McKinley at the White House
on many occasions. .It was ascer
tained recently that It was Mr. Mc-
Cill and Senator llanna who in
duced President McKinly to increase
his life insurance in the last few
years, lhe iresiuent naa many
expenses during his life, and he had
not been able to save much. Up to
1887 his life insurance policies ag
gregated about $12,000.
Mrs. McKinley's income from the
nsurance policies, the pension or
$5,000 a year which Congress will
grant, ana the money saveu py tne
resident will be about $13,000 a

Savannah, Ga., September 21.-!
Through the paternal orancn oi me
ancestral tree may have flowed some
of the sap that gave President Roo
sevelt his indomitable spirit, but
certain it is that the maternal branch i
was rich in that quality whi;b
marked the Bullochs ot Georgia for
their resolution, pertinacity and
strength of will. No better expo
nent of those traits could be found
than Martha Bulloch Roosevelt, the
mother of the President.
Not long after the civil war Mrs.
Roosevelt was on a visit to Savan
nah, where she had many friends.
She was a Georgia woman, of dis
tinguished ancestry, the, Bulloch
family being one' of the best iu the
state and its representatives having
served with distinction in the high
est positions. It was but natural,
therefore, that she should have been
well received upon her viait to this
city, and that there should have been
rare pleasure to her, an unrecon
structed "rebel," in her intercourse
with her own people, those who had
fought and bled upon the field of
battle, or fought the greater battle
of watching and waiting.
Reunion with her southern friends
after the years of the war that she
had spent at her home in New York,
was a pleasure to Mrs. Roosevelt,
and it was with the keenest relish
that she recounted stories of the
times and of the trials that she had
suffered in the city of her adoption
through her unswerving loyalty to
the cause of the South a cause to
which two of her brothers had de
voted themselves, one as the repre
sentative of the Government of the
Confederacy in London, and the
other as an officer -on the cruiser
Alabama. One of these stories
clearly reveals the character of the
woman, and leaves little difficulty
in determining whence the Presi
dent gets some of those qualities
that have tended to his preferment.
It was at a dinner given in Mrs.
Roosevelt's honor by Mrs. Henrietta
S. Cohen that she told the Btory.
Of late years, because of Theodore
Roosevelt's rapid advancement, it
has been recalled by his mother's
old friends, who feel a pride in hav
ing known the mother of the Presi
dent and gladly ascribe to her some
of the traits that are seen in her
was just when the spirit of
peace, uncertain whether it should
alight, was hovering over the land,
New York was aflame with passion
ate patriotism, and anything smack
ing of Confederacy wasn't tolerated,
Feeling ran high and woe was it to
anyone who braved the tide and
showed a leaning towards the cause
of the South.
-Theodore Roosevelt, the elder,
decided about that time to give some
great social function. The Roose
velt mansion was accordingly brave
ly decked in bunting and with UuU.
ted States flags. From every win-
dow save one flew the Stars and
Stripes. That exception was Mrs
Roosevelt's boudoir window. Her
husband had not desired to omit it
from the decorative scheme, but she
would have none oi it. Instead she
hit upon a plan that would clearly
reveal her sentiments
Stopping not to consider the peril
in which it might place her and her
husband, but determined to show
that all in that house were not of
the cause of the North, she drew
from her cherished treasures the
Stars and Bars of the Confederacy.
Going to the window, Bhe firmly
fixed its staff and allowed its folds
to flutter to the breeze.
On the instant, almost, the hostile
ensign was noted. In hot indigna
tion one observer pointed it out to
another, and a mob speedily grew,
as mobs will. Soon the street was
choked with angry people, who
shook threatening fists at -the Con
federate flag and inveighed most
Alarmed by the gathering that
was swelled at every moment ana
which directed its wrath against his
house, Mr. Roosevelt sought the
cause that had stirred the people to
anger. He was not loug in finding
it. Fierce acclaim directed his gaze,
which rested upon the fluttering
emblem of the South. The Roose
velt nature has never quailed before
a crowd. Theodore, the elder, Baw
that imminent danger could -probably
be averted only through per
suading his wife to remove the ob
jectionable flag. With a word to
the crowd he entered the house to
find his wife. He told her what she
already knew that the anger of the
mob bad been excited by her indis
creet display of the southern colors,
and said that it would be well for
her to take in the flag.
"I shall not do so," said the moth
er of the President. "The flag is
mine; the boudoir is mine. 1 love
the flag, for it represents my native)
and. No ruffian hand shall invade
the privacy of my boudoir to drag
down that flag, nor shall ruffian
shouts force me to remove it from
the window of a room that is whol-
y mine. Explain to them that I
am a southern woman; that I love
the South. Do anything you like,
except touch that flag. It shall not
And it did not. Theodore Roose
velt went again to face the crowd.
He dwelt with finesse upon his
wife's love for her native land and
molded the gathering to his will
and to an indulgence of Mrs. Roose- j
vIr in her desire to flv the flas of
her beloved South.

Let us keep steady heads aud

going backward, but forward. Am

by the storms of the past.
The American people have never
failed, no matter how great the em
ergency, no matter how grave the
crisis, to measure up to the highest
responsibilities of honor and duty.

The nation has appreciated the
valor and patriotism of tLe black
men of the United States. They
not only fought in Cuba, but in the

As we have been united and there

have no differences among ourselves

The. Capture of Pekin.
New Spectacular Innovation Intro
duced in Buffalo Bill's
It has not been long since Buffalo Bill and his
Wild West Aggregation were in this city. At that
time, it will be remembered that a spectacular
production of the Battle of San Juan was giren. It
was an imposing sight and pronounced one of the
most elaborate affairs that has been seen in the
open-air.' This year Messrs. Cody A Saulsbury
announce that they have, after much detail, suc
ceeded in placing a successor to the famous Santiago
scene, which is acknowledged to be the most elab
orate war drama that any amusement purTeyors
have erer attempted.
It is. called the Battle of Tien Tsin, or the
Capture of Pekin. In this enormous production,
the allied powers of the United States, England,
Germany, France and Russia, are seen to assemble
in grand review previous to the battle. Side by
side, shoulder to shoulder, step by step, the allied
armies advanced to the conflict at Tien-Tsin, in
the same friendly spirit of rivalry begotten by the
mimic warfare of this character, first inaugurated
by Col. W. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill), under -whose
direction the entire entertainment is supervised.
Having in this remaraable manner anticipated
history (in connection with the great realistic re
production of the historical past of America) it
seems fitting that the most stirring events of that
unique campaign of the allied forces should now
take its place as a leading feature of this year's ed
ucational exhibition, and that a powerful, realistic
and stirring representation of the Battle of Tien
Tsin be presented to the public in order to round
out this great historical record of the last century's
remarkable achievements. It is more than appro
priate that this should be the grateful task of this
organization, since it is the only one that include,
in itself the personnel of the various armies of the
allied forces, and is thus enabled to present accu
rately the uniformed and equipped soldiery, vet
eran members of the various armies engaged in the
campaign, in all the "glittering pomp and circum
stances of an army with banners."
This elegant production will be included In

Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After 30
Years of Suffering.
"I have suffered for thirty years
with diarrhoea and thought I was
past being cured," says John S. Ilal
loway, of French Camp, Bliss. I
had spent so much time and money
and suffered so much that I had
given up all hopes of rei-nvery. I
was so feeble from the efrWts of the
diarrhoea that I could do no kind
of labor, and could not even travel,
but by accident I was permitted to
find a bottle of Chamberl.iin'e Cjlic,
Cholera and Diirrhoea Hemedy and
after taking several bottles I am en
tirely cured of that trouble. I am
so pleased with the result that I am
anxious that it should be in reach of
all who suffer as I have.
