FRIDAY,' JULY 3, 1903.
The Supreme Court disposed of
a number of important cases Satur
day. One of the most of general im
portance was the case of a saloon
keeper of Obion County against the
Slate. This was a test case under
the Adams law, whether the saloon-
ist who took out license just be
fore the towns which came under
the provisions of the law, less
than 5,000 inhabitants, abolished
their charters and were reincorpo
rated, could continue to sell whiskey
during the life of the license.
Several towns in the state were af
fected by this case, Toone in this
county, being among the number
The court held that they could
not continue to do business, but
that the saloons were liable under
the Acts of 1903, and that the
Adams law is constitutional. The
opinion was delivered by Judge
Wilkes. Chief Justice Beard and
Associate Justice Shields dissented,
though they were of the opinion
that the licenses were not taken out
iu good faith.
to Mr. Oluey, referring to numerous
acts of his in public and private
life that would redound to his
strenght if he became the nominee
"His correspondence with Great
Britain in the matter of the Venez
uelan affair and the llonroe doctrine
was the most crditable of any exhi

lion. Josiah Patterson was re
cently interviewed by the Memphis
Scimitar in regard to presidential
candidates and the platform. He
ln my opinion Judge Parker,
of New York, is the most available
man to head the Democratic ticket
Personally I would rather support
Mr. Cljveland than any other
person, but I don't believe he would
accept the nomination, and I don't
believe the people of this country
would stand for the third term pro
position. Next to Mr. Cleveland I
would rather support Mr. Olney,
but I do not consider him in the
running for obvious reasons. If
elected he would be 70 years of age
when inaugurated, which is too
much. Then he is a Massachusetts
man and would not carry the weight
we need in the doubtful States
But Judge Parker I believe to be
the man. He is a life-long Demo
crat of sound principles, a sound
money man who supported Bryan,
and who is thus in position to con
trol the support of all the elements
His conduct at this time is admira
ble. He is attending to his business
on the bench, making no stump.

"What about the platform?"
'The Democracy should revert
to those principles which in times
past were found to be sound,
popular and victorious. The line of
demarkation is very distinct. It
was after the platform of 1892 that
the party began to run alter free
silver and Populism, and the era of
defeat was introduced. Let us go
back to that platform which stands
for tariff reform, for economy in
government, for individuality as
against centralization. That was a
cood platform then and it would be
a good pattern to adopt for future
operations. Let us get out of this
idea that the government must help
the individual with either a money
coinage or a high tariff."
"How about the trusts?"
"A certain group of people iu our
party, the free silver people and
those who have been running after
the populist fectiohes. have taken up
this shout against the trust, but I am
not of the opinion that we have any
fight to make against capital as capi
tal. If capital has formed combina
tions that are in restraint of trade if
prices of the necessities of life are
arbitrarily raised, as we know they
are every day, if the wage earners
are oppressed, it is all the results of
a protective tariff which was con
ceived for this very purpose aud
which was foreseen by the Demo
cracy years ago to have this very
effect. The remedy is all embraced
in the old Democratic doctrine of a
tariff for revenue only, which will
throw our markets open to the com
merce of the world, open the doors
to a healthy competition aud pre
vent the evils of which complant is
made. We should have no war to
make on capital, but on the abuse of

Very Remarkable Cure of Diarrhoea
"About six years ago for the first
time in my life I had a sudden se
vere attack of diarrhoea," says Mrs
Alice Miller, of Morgan, Texas. "I
got temporary relief, but it came
aerain and again, and lor six long
vears I have suffered more misery
and agony than 1 can tell. It was
worse than death. My husband
spent hundreds of dollars for physi
cians' prescriptions and treatment
without avail, r inally we moved
to Bosque county, our pre sent home,
and one day I happened to see an
advertisement of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme
dy with a testimonial of a man who
had been cured by it. The case
was so similar to my own mat l
concluded to try the remedy. The
result was wonderful. 1 could
hardly realize that I was well again,
or believe it could be so after having
suffered so long, but that one bottle
of medicine, costing but a few cents
cured me." tor sale by Cox Co.,

General Crop Conditions.
The temperature, while below the
normal for the last week in June,
was not sufficient to materially
check the growth of vegetation,
which under the influence of the
frood showers that fell at intervals,
made fair progress. These showers
while beneficial to growth, hindered
to some extent the work of thresh
ing wheat and of haying, which is
in progress. Wheat is' yielding
much below the average in quantity,
in most instances. Corn is email
