FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1903.
Urox the recommendations of
the medical colleges of the Slate,
Gov. Frazier has appointed a com
mission, composed of eight doctors,
to receive and dispose of the un
claimed bodies of persons who die
in charitable and penal institutions
It seems there is a scramble for the
dead among the colleges, some, per
haps, receiving more than their
share, hence the request for the
commission,' to parcel them out.
What a shame and a stain upon the
State to legalize such disgraceful
and inhuman proceeding! 'Why
should an unfortunate, bereft of
reason, unable to provide for him
self, Le denied a decent burial? No
one will envy the commission its
In view of the fact that thecoun
ty is behind in the payment of its
. warrants, which are now being nam
Nbered, it is well to exercise economy
and any method which is prudent
and feasible, looking to the reduc
tidn of expenditures, deserves con
sideration. It has been suggested
that one way to eurtaii expenses
would be to reduce the membership
of the court. At present Hardeman
County has forty-six Justices of the
Peace and every meeting of Quar
terly Court costs the County $134.
00, or $536.00 annually. It is fur
ther claimed that the business of
the public could be attended to with
greater satisfaction by one-half the
number of Justices. Of course, so
far as the financial saving is concern
ed in this instance, the amount
would be small, only $286.00, pro
vided the membership were reduced
one-half, but it would be a step in
the right direction. That there are
too many members of our court, all
will admit, perhaps, except some of
the members themselves. We no
tice from the Acts of the Fifty-third
. General Assembly, just gotten out
by Secretary of State Morton, that
no less than twenty counties of the
State were redistricted by the recent
legislature. The counties were
Bledsoe, Bradley, Campbell, Car
roll, Claiborne, Clay, Cocke, Cum
berland, Fentress, Grainger, Greene,
Hamblen, Hawkins, Henry, Jeffer
son, Loudon, Maury, Pickett,
Roane and Wayne. Under the re
districting act, Maury County now
has but nine civil districts and eigh
teen Justices, instead of twenty-five
districts and fifty Justices as for
merly. Fentress County cut the
civil districts from thirteen to six
and the number of Justices from
twenty-six to six, as under the re
districting act only one Justice will
be elected from each district instead
of two as has been the custom here
tofore. Bledsoe County reduced
her civil districts from twelve to
six, Campbell County from sixteen
to five, Carroll from twenty-two to
fifteen, Cocke from sixteen to eight,
Cumberland from thirteen to four,
Grainger from fourteen to five,
Hawkins from twenty to seven,
Henry from twenty-five to twelve,
Jefferson from nineteen to seven,
and Pickett, Roane and Wayne each
from fourteen to eight. The other
counties which were redistricted
cut the number of their civil dis
tricts from one-third to one-half.
A Splendid Effort-
A public man belongs to the
public that put him in position and
the public is interested in knowing
how he does and whether he develops
or deteriorates. This was shown in
the crowd that thronged and packed
the courthouse on yesterday and for
three hours and five minutes lis
tened to the argument of Hon. M.
R. Patterson, the congressman from
the Tenth district, in the Turner
murder case. This public has not
had an opportunity of hearing him
since he entered congress the second
time and the outpouring was un
precedented. Those who expected much were
not disappointed. Association with
the great orators in the national
legislature and the thrilling ex
perience of addressing a nation of
80,000,000 people may have given
confidence, but not to the point of
producing lassitude or mitigating
interest. He was perhaps more
finished, but not a whit less force
ful. His argument was principally
legal, in which he reasoned as
closely as a Jesuit logician. His
analysis separated and exploited
each incident in the case until the
jury could see every biick and bar
and bolt in the edifice erected by
the prosecution, standing apart and
alone, unveiled objects of scrutiny;
and, in closing, he synthesized
these elemental entities, brought
them together in a symmetrical
whole and completed a perfect and
apparently invulnerable structure.
Withal there were fights towards
the empyrean, anagoge that elevated
and sublimated thought, elucidated
aud made clear the spiritual mean
ing of the ominous language of the
laws, secular and sacred; aud, in
apophasis, in declining to say what
in effect he did say by iHdirection
with greater force than any direct
statement could be, he was adroit
and dextrous. Ilis "I will not
charge George Turner with guilty
knowledge ot the murder of Dr. Hal
Scruggs, but," etc., reraiuded one

The Crjmnal Court of Shelby
countv has resounded to the voices
of great orators, that are hushed and
mute, and voices that may and will
be heard; but seldom, if ever, has it
vibrated to a more scholarly
eloquent and logical speech than
the one delivered by Congressman
Patterson, whose fame as a speaker
is a cherished local asset, though o

Bob Taylor for Bate.
Knoxville, Tenu., July 12.
Ex-Gov. Robert L. Taylor had
something interesting to say to-day
on the senatorial situation iu Ten
nessee. When asked if he was a
candidate for the seuate, he replied
that he was running in the interest
of Senator Bate, whom he wished
to succeed himself.
"I am having a good deal of fun
out of the boys in this race," said
the ex-governor. They can't Bee
how I can be for Senator Bale.
Those who go against him will soon
find out why I am for"hira. I am
like the drunken fellow who stag
gered around and held to the door
and said he would jump into his
bed the next time it came around.
I am for Senator Bate this time, all
I want to do in this race, is stagger
around and keep my feet so I can
jump into the bed next time. Se
riously, I see no reason why this
old man, rich in years and honors,
should be turned out if he wauts to
stay in. 1 would have defeated him
years ago if I could, but the time is
past now to defeat Senator Bate.
He has grown old, and with the
weight of years comes the senti
ment of war, the strongest in the
sentiment of any people. I went
against Shiloh once, but I'll never
do it asain. I am converted. The
sentiments of war are stronger than
the sentiments of peace. Senato'r
Bate is a much stronger candidate
uow than ever. I would not mind
having the honor of succeeding
Senator Bate,- but it is a case of
"After you my dear Gastou," with
me, and I can wait till the old man
retires. I used to think that if 1
did not get my blood into the senate
ouce, that the whole country would
go to the bow-wows, but I have got
over that, and the longer I put off
my race the less I am inclined to
crowd out an old man who has been
just as good a Democrat as the coun
try ever produced, and a brave and
honored soldier as well. You can
say I am for Bate, first, last and all
the time. I have had several repre
sentatives from headquarters come
to me and tell me what a big mistake
I was making by being for Bate,
but I cau't see it that way. The
only mistake I ever made was run
ning against him in 1892, and I
don't care to repeat it."
'Whitehall" Out of Repair.
"Whitehall," the home of Gen.
Cassius M. Clay, once reputed to be
one of the most beautiful homes in
this country, has so long been neg
lected that it will take thousands of
dollars tcput it in repair. Gen. Clay
will not be removed from White
hall. The remainder of his days
will be spent in his mansion and
every attention will be shown to
make his remaining life as happy as
possible. Officers anticipate no
more trouble from Gen. Clay. The
old man has to be helped when on
his bed and can scarcely stand. His
grandson, Green Clay, said that his
grandfather was in a very bad con
dition physically, and it would not
surprise him if he died any time.
The General, he said, was ninety
three years of age, six feet two in
chers tall and weighed 150 pounds

and beard are as white as enow.

General Crop Conditions.
During the interval between the
first and last days of . the week,
warm, dry weather prevailed, which
was beneficial to growing crops, es
pecially cotton, which showed ma
terial improvement, and although
small for the season was beginning
to make more satisfactory growth;
the crop was pretty well cleaned
out as a rule. The good showers
that fell during the first and latter
days of the week over the greater
portion of the state had a very ben
eficial effect on corn and other
growing crops and the outlook is
much more encouraging as to these
crops, some of which were begin
ning to need moisture. Corn is
mostly small, but, as a rule, it has
a healthy appearance and is making
a very satisfactory growth and"the
fields are mostly clean. The work
of threshing wheat and harvesting
oats made satisfactory progress du
ring the favorable days; wheat is
yielding much below the average as
a rule. Sweet potatoes are in good
growth; planting the late crop of
Irish potatoes is still in progress.
Peas'and millet are growing well.
The late rains facilitated the break
ing of stubble land for the pur
pose of sowing late peas. Spring
clover is reported the best for
years. The shipments of tomatoes
from the western counties have
been the largest known at some of
the shipping points. Apples and
grapes continue to promise good
