The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
FRIDAY, FEB. 13, 1903.
The legislature adjourns
to-day for a recess.
Senator Ledger wood's
resolution requesting the del
egates from Tennessee to the
next National Democratic
Convention to work to secure
the name of a Southern man
upon the Democratic ticket,
was passed. It will also
be passed up by the con
vention. But Ledgerwood is
"When the legislative com
mittee comes down to visit
the Western Hospital, the
members will have an oppor
tunity to see the condition of
the road from Bolivar to that
institution, and if they fail
or refuse to recommend an
approximation for its improve
ment, we hope they will get
il stuck in the mud."
We understand that a pe
tition has been forwarded to
our representatives in the leg
islature, signed by 31 citizens
of Toone, asking tor the re
peal of its charter in order
to abolish saloons. A coun
ter petition was signed, we
learn, by 29 citizens. The
good people of Toone have
seen the evil results of the
saloon. Scores Of towns all
over Tennessee are clamoring
for their abolishment, and
the legislature is kept busy
with this character of work.
It could not spend its v time
to better advantage.
Concerning the temper
ance movement, which is now
so popular in Tennessee, it
may be of interest to our
readers to know that the late
Bishop "Quintan! was among
the first to take steps in that
direction. In 1871 he-went
before the legislature asking
that body to prohibit the sale
of whisky within four miles
of the University of the
South at Sewanee. The good
bishop, on being informed
that the constitution was in
the way of the passage of
such a law, it being local in
its nature, then asked for a
general law, applying to all
chartered schools, and his re
quest was granted.
Mr. Carter has intro
duced a bill in the House to
repeal the "hog law," which
applies to Hardeman county.
The repeal of this law would
meet with the approval of
many of our citizens, but it
also meets with strong and
positive opposition. What
suits some sections of this
county does not suit other
sections. One of our leading
citizens recently expressed to
the editor of the Bulletin
his views in regard to the
matter, and they impress us
as being fair and just. His
idea is that a general stock
law should be passed, appli
cable to the entire State, the
provisions of which should
be that-every person 'must
keep his stock upon his own
premises, or pay for their pas
turage when upon the prem
ises of another.

Patterson on Roosevelt and Trusts.
Congressman. M. R. Patterson
made a speech on the 29th in the
House of Representatives on anti
trust legislation. Mr. Patterson is
quoted as saying that he was not op
posed to wealth when it was honest
ly acquired, .but that it was "a men
ace when dishonestly acquired, or
was the reason of favoritism in leg
islation. He Baid that the tariff
was the efficient cause of great ac
cumulation of wealth and that
wealth, having a natural affinity for
wealth, great alliances had been
formed which were controlling ar
ticles of daily use and consumption.
Mr. Patterson said further that
the tariff laws had borne heavily
upon the agricultural masses and
that they suffered by every tariff ex
action. He said that the . distrust
of the American people was pervad
ing and universal, that industrial
liberty or socialism would be there
suit unless congress afforded relief.
The power of congress, he 6aid, was
plenary and exclusive over inter
state commerce and the practical
question was not one of power, but
of how that power should be exer
cised. He explained in detail the provis
ions of his bill and compared them
with the provisions.of the bill re.
ported by the judiciary committee.
In the course of his remarks Mr.
Patterson said, in speaking of Presi
(lent Roosevelt, that he'had no sym
pathy with the masses of the people,
that his attitude was one of insin
cerity, and so far as the South vas
concerned, it had as well be under
stood now that he stood for every
thing which that section opposed.
Mr. Patterson said that Mr. Roose
velt as. an author had characterized
Thomas Jefferson as a shifty doctri
narian, a man who had borrowed
his ideas from the French revolu
tionists and untruthful. This gave
the epeker an opportunity to declare
that Roosevelt, the president, with
such opinions, could not be trusted.
In this connection. Mr. Patterson
said: "The name of Thomas Jeffer
son and the eternal truths which he
stated, will live throughout all time
and, like a pillar of fire, burn with
undiminished glory when the name
of Roosevelt and all he did or said
.will be forgotten by the sons of
It is likely that the committee
on purchase or erection of a Gov
ernor's mansion will repoit in favor
of the proposition to appropriate
$25,000 or $50,000 for that purpose.
It is believed that the latter sum
will be named. There is no reason
why the State of Tennessee should
not provide as liberally for the com
fort and convenience of her Govern
or as other slates of equal or less
wealth. If Georgia can afford to
spend$100.000 on a Governor's man
sion surely Tennessee can stand an
appropriation of $50,000. As the
Daily News has continually urged,
it is false economy to continue the
niggardly policy of doing without a
State mansion for the v Governor.
The bad impression such parsimony
leaves upon outsiders is in itself
enough to make it a bad policy.
The legislature should not fail to
provide adequate quarters for the
Governor of Tennessee. Nashvile
"The Indianola Question."
The question is, Shall the milita
ry power of the United States be
used to force a colored official upon
a community against the unanimous
protest of its white inhabitants? If
this question be answered in the af
firmative, we miy have to face a re
newal of the Civil War. We doubt
the expediency of raising such an
issue. We regret to add that there
is a trace of vindictiveness add pro
vocation in the course pursued by
the Post-Office Department which
has compelled the citizens of Indi
anola to obtain their mail at a post
office thirty miles away instead of at
another only four miles distant.
Conceding, for the sake of argu
ment, that the inhabitants of Indi
anola had defied Federal authoritity

May Lose Their Money.
There is an unlooked for condi
tion which it seems probable may de
velop in various counties of Tennes
see as a result of the Adams bill.
The matter developed Monday in
some correspondence recieved by
Comptroller Theo. -F. King from of
ficers in several counties - of the
State. In a word, it is whether or
not the Adams temperance law,
should it be voted operative in a
county, will revoke any existing
licenses for the retailing of liquor,
if such licenses had been taken out
for a period of time longer than the
date on which the Adams law be
Since the bill became a law giving
to the towns of each county, on cer
tain conditions, tbe'right of suffrage
to repeal the sale of liquor, there
have been licenses taken out by re
tail dealers in some parts of the
State for six months or even a year
ahead. In some instances these li
censes have been taken out when the
dealer already had a liceuse which
would not expire for some time to
come. Irrespective and independ
ent of the fact that he was legally
licensed to do business for a month
or more as the case might be before
his license would expire, he has
taken out a license giving him the
power to retail liquor for the next
six mouths or year.
This is a most unusual occurrence,
as it has been the rarest of instances
when a dealer has taken out a li
cense for more than three months.
The license is $150 per annum,
making it $37 50 per quarter. It is
the natural inference that these deal
ers have taken out the licenses for
a longer time, anticipating the proba
bility of the acceptance of the
Adams law by the county in which
they conducted their retail liquor
business. In event of the passage
of the law by election it is supposed
they felt secure in the belief- that
their business would be allowed to
continue so long as the license re
gained in force,', and if the law
should not become effective, they
bad simply complied with a necessi
ty in taking out the license at a
nominally small additional expense.
In the correspondence recieved by
Comptroller King the questions were
asked: "Will the license be opera
tive until the date of their expira
tion?" and "Is it proper to continue
the issuance of licenses for long
times with the matter of the Adams
law pending or a probability?" Al
ready" retail liquor dealers of the
State have taken out licenses for
twelve months as follows: In Moore
County, oue dealer; Williamson
County, one; Hardeman County,
one; Henry County, two; Bradley
County, three aifd Tipton County
six. These facts shown by reports
of County Clerks of these counties,
sent in to the Comptroller's office.
Should the view taken by Comp
troller King prove correct in this
matter, the liquor dealers will have
their fouble for their pains in this
regard, their licenses will be null
and void with the acceptance of the
Adams law and they will be out of
pocket the amount paid by them for
the licenses. They may continue,
however to take out iicensts for six
months or a year it they please up
to the time of the acceptance of the
"This matter has been brought
to my attention," said Comptroller
King, 'by some of the county of
ficers of the State. I have been
asked for an expression of opinion
in the premises, but of course can
not give this until after a consul
tatioa with the Attorney General.
I feel secure in my belief, however,
that the moment the Adams temper
ance law becomes operative in a com
munity, its effect will be to make
null and void every existing license
grantingo sale privileges to retail
liquor dealers. The law does not
admit of double construction, and
when a town votes to accept this en
actment and surrenders its charter
and is reincorporated under the new
statute no license is valid or can
continue in force in defiance of the
In regard to the matter ot is
suing these licenses, of course it is
lawful aud proper for them to be
granted, for whatever time be al
lowed by the law the persons taking
them out may desire. But for any
period longer than the acceptance
of the Adams law it must necessari
ly be at a loss to the person holding
the license. It is a w ell known fact
that the State does not refund
monev in such a case as this or, in
fact any other wheie the transaction
is regular and in conformity with
the law. The only way in which
these dealers "could ever get their
money back for these licenses
taken out by them for a time ex
tending past the adoption of the
Adams temperance law, would be
by a special enactment of the Leg
islature." WEAK AND LOW SPIRITED.

Monument to Jefferson. v
Wasuingtojt, February 1. The
Thomas Jefferson Memorial Associ
ation, organized for - the purpose
of erecting at the National Capitol
an appropriate and truly national
memorial to the "Author of the De
claration of Independence," through
its President, Admiral George Dew
ey, has issued an appeal to the Am
erican people for funds to carry out
the object of the Association. The
text of the appeal is as follows:
"Headquarters the Thomas Jeffer
son Memorial Association of the Un
ited States, Washington, Jan. 31,
1903. To - the American People:
The Thomas Jefferson Memorial
Association has been organized to
take up the long-neglected duty of
erecting a fitting memorial to the
memory of the man who wrote the
Declaration of Independence.
"We have here neautiful and cost
Iy tributes to the memory of Amer
ican soldiers, sailors, statesmen,
physicians, iuveutors aud philan
thropists; and the soldiers and sail
ors of France are honored; but there
is not one tablet to the memory of
that great American, Thomas Jeffer
son. "We ask-the people to contribute
according to their ability to this me
morial. The character and cost of
the proposed memorial cannot now
be stated. Rigid economy will be
observed in the expenses of carrying
on the work. Every contributor
will receive a certificate acknowledg
ing his subscription, and carrying
with it membership in the associa
tion. Id time to come these will
be badges of honor.'
"Contributions, checks, money or
ders or drafts should be made pay
able to the order of the Treasurer
of the association, Jesse B. Wilson,
President of the Lincoln National
Bank. Communications addressed
to the Secretary, W. S. McKean,
will receive prompt and respectful
"Admiral of the Navy, President."
The association is now complete
in its officers, every State being rep
resented by a Vice President, and
in some cases by a representative on
the Board of Governors, those con
trolling the body. 'No great move
ment of a similar character in this
country, it is claimed, has as its offi
cers more men of national character
and influence than this organization.
The association, it is stated, is
thoroughly non-partisan, the design
being merely to raise a memorial to
Mr. Jefferson as a writer of the Dec
laration of Independence.
Among the Vice Presidents of
the association are Hon. E. W.
Carmack, of Tennessee.
