FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1903.
If it were left to Gen. Miles and
his friends, Roosevelt would never
darken the White House again.
Gen. Luke VVkigut, of Mem
phis, will succeed Judge Taft as
governor-general of the Philippines
when the latter becomes secretary
of War next January in succession
to Elihu Root.
Peesident Roosevelt cares
nothing for economy and spends the
people's money as if it grew on
tress. Recently he reviewed a
squadron of war ships. It was too
tedious for him to visit the squadron,
so he ordered the squadron to him.
It is estimated that the trip cost
the government $247,540.00.
There will be "something doing"
in politics next year. National,
state and county officers are to be
elected. Indications point to a sat
isfactory solution of the differences
among democrats, and a candidate
for President will be nominated
who will, doubtless, poll the full
party strength. Local contests will
add some ginger to the campaign
Benton McMillin and his friends
are laying plans to defeat that
soldier and honest
statesman, Senator William B
Bate, who has served the people
of Tennessee so long and so loyally,
both in war and in peace. McMil
lin is enjoying (?) a political rest at
present, and the indications are that
it will be long continued.
The Atlanta Constitution,
former Bryan paper, says: "There
is one supreme debt that Mr.
Bryan owes to the Democratic party,
ana wmcn ne snouia De generous
and humble enough to pay in full.
He should either talk sense when he
talks politics or quiet down and go
home. He is not now helping the
party to get together, to throw over
board any Jonahs, to establish a new
alignment of the forces of popular
rights and to-win a campaign against
the party of unwise, unfair and un
constitutional government. If he
will not push he should not pull
Joe Williams Called on to Make the
Race for Governor.
Persons who are skeptical about
- the popularity of Mayor J. J. Wil
liams in Tennessee, and the formid
able race he can make for governor
of Tennessee, need only see the
overflow of letters recieved by him
to be convinced that if he but says
the word in 1904 he will s.weep West
Tennessee and & Large section of
Some of these letters would create
a political sensation if published.
Hundreds of them were from frienrs,
and are confidential, and in pledging
their time, money and services to
Mayor Williams' cause they express
a dissatisfaction with the action and
appointments of the present chief
executive that are unmistakable.
One of these letters urging him
to make the race is from a former
governor of Tennessee, who once
swept the State, and has thousands
of loyal friends at his back.
Mayor Williams is saying nothing,
but is thinking. He neither says he
will run, nor does he say he won't.
He did not start the cyclone of sen
timent that has crystallized to make
him tb,e choice of leaders of about
thjrty Democratic counties of the
State. He is receiving and reading
the bundles of letters and filiner
them away. He is gratified that
men of large influence in Tennessee
should write and pledge him their
unqualified support. He refused
yesterday to give the letters to the
Commercial Appeal or to express
himself on the matter. The big
batch of letters would make the best
political reading published in Ten
nessee for yeus. Some of them are
from wealthy men, who are of large
affairs in their sections.
It is a gratifying commentary on
the present local fight of a little
politicl faction of Memphis on
Mayor Williams that while they
seek to embarrass him the leading
citizens of Tennessee are begging
him to make the race for the highest
office in their gift Commercial

Death of William House.
After an illness of two weeks
William House died, of typhoid
fever, at the family residence in
Franklin at a feV minutes before
six o'clock yesterday morning. A
fatal termination to his sickness had
been anticipated for only three days,
and the community was the less
prepared, therefore, for the news
of his demise. His mother, sisters
and brothers were with him in his
last hours, as were a few of the boy
and girl friends of his childhood and
youth, to whom he spoke with
tenderness and resignation, express
ing the christaia's faith in an
eternity of rest and happiness, and
sending messages of affectionate
farewell to absent friends. In an
impressive scene, fraught with the
meaning of an honorable life gently
merging into peaceful immortality,

the bosom of a devoted family and

of the late William House. As a

by profession and gave bright
promise. He was a young man of
broad culture, exemplary habits and j

every hand are heard expressions of
appreciation of his admirable

demise. The death of no voun?
