The same resistance that has been
made to Lee will probably be made
to the reception of the statue o
Vance, the great war governor of
the Confederacy. But the trouble
will soon blow over, and Lee's case
will settle the precedent. If the
privilege by some miracle of intol

The Confederate soldiers of Hay

the proceedings, pays the following

"The annual address by Congress

Encouraging Crop Report.
Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 4. (Spe
cial.) The weekly crop report of
the United States weather bureau is
very encouraging. Weather condi
tions have been favorable in most
directions. Corn is in fine condition
except in parts of West Tennessee.
Cotton is, growing rapidly and is
branching and fruiting well.. To
bacco is in good shape. Much of the
earlier plantings have been topped.
Irish potatoes made a fine yield, and
a large area has been planted in the
second crop. Wheat and oats have
about been threshed, with good yield

The Nashville, Chattanooga &
St. Louis Railway has kindly of
fered to contribute the famous war
engine, "General," to the Tennessee
exhibit at the St Louis World's
Fair. This engine during the un
pleasantness of 1801-, did service
on the Western & Atlantic Rail
road, between - Chattanooga and
Atlanta, Ga. On the morning of
April 12, 1302, while on its way
from Atlanta to Chattanooga, pull
ing a train of three freight cars, to
bring back stores from. Chattanooga
to Atlanta, it was taken away from
its crew at Big Shandy, seven miles
from Marietta, by twenty-two
Federal soldiers in disguise, who
attempted to escape with her and
burn the bridge between Chatta
nooga and Atlanta, so that supplies
could not be carried over the road
to the Confederate forces stationed
at Atlanta. After a hot pursuit she
was recaptured near Ringgold,
after having been deserted by her
captors, who took to the woods
with the hope of making their es
cape. In this, however, they were
unsuccessful, and in less than twenty-four
hours were all made captives.
They were tried by a military court
and eight of their number were ex
ecuted . as spies in Atlanta. Six
were exchanged, and eight escaped
Libby prison. They were to re
ceive $00,000 from the government
in the event of success. Much has
been written and printed about this
historic old relic, and, owing to its
history and fame, it will add great
interest to the Tennessee exhibit at

Reward For Boll
The first claimant of the reward
of $50,000 offered by the State of
Texas to the person who discovered
or devised a - successful and practi
cal remedy for eradicating the cot
ton boll weevil is George Franklin,
a farmer living near San Marcos,
this State. He submitted his claim
to Gov. Lanham to-day, and the
remedy will be passed upon by a
committe of five farmers whom the
Governor will appoint for that pur
pose. Mr. Franklin, says that the wee
vils were devasting the cotton on
his farm when he began applying
the remedy to the plants four weeks
ago, and that the pests have entire
ly disappeared. It is a liquid pre
paration, applied to U12 .lants by
spraying, at a cost of not to exceed
$1 an acre for the season.
