The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh "Williams, JLoitor.
Friday, February 12, 1904.
Senatoh Carmack has our thanks
for a late copy of tbe Congressional
Directory, a valuable book for
The primary to select a candi
date for Trustee and Sheriff is only
about a month off. Unless more in
terest is manifested than at present,
the vote promises to be light.
One of the most disastrous fires
in the history of the country oc
curred Sunday morning in the city
of Baltimore. Seventy-five blocks,
covering one hundred and forty
acres, on which were two thousand
five hundred buildings, the most
costly and handsome structures in
the business portion of the city,
were destroyed. The loss is estima
ted at over one hundred million
dollars. Fifty thousand people have
been thrown out of employment.
On account of speculation and
persistent rumors of war netween
Russia and Japan, the price of cot
ton has declined. The cotton fac
tors of New Orleans and Memphis,
in order to stay the downward ten
dency, have decided to hold the
cotton on hand until tbe market re
acts. Mr. Brown says: "If the
South will stand together, and not
give away, so far as spots are con
cerned, there will be a big advance
in the ntar future, and prices will
go higher than ever. The world
needs all the spot cotton the South
has and must have it.''
Here is the way the Jonesboro
Herald and Tribune puts it: "If
you want to Kee a- Democratic lead
er hedge and dodge ami use a mul
titude of words to say nothing, ask
him his choice for United Slates
Senator. But the masses of the
the party, who have no ax to griud
and are wilfully ignorant of the fine
art of concealment, are speaking
right out for the old rebel general."
Yes, and they are more emphatic
about it, too, because Senator Bate
is the very last of the list in Tennes
see who ever held a public office
Even if there were no other reasons
this ought to settle the controversy,
at least between him and the Hon.
State Convention May 25th.
Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 4. The
only absentees at the meeting of
the State Democratic committee to
day were J. E Murphy, of Hum
boldt, and Hugh Pettit, of Mem
phis. Several members were how
ever represented by proxy. The
committee was presided over by
Chairman Frank M. Thompsou, and
the utmost harmony prevailed. One
convention, to assemble May 25,
was decided on. This convention
will select delegates to the national
convention, choose candidates for
presidential electors and nominate
candidates for governor, railroad
commissioner, secretary of state,
state treasurer and comptroller.
There was some opposition to notni
inatiug for secretary ol slate. The
convention will meet at Nashville.
National Committeeman J. M.
Head, who had just returned from
St. Louis, addressed the committee
as to hotel accommodations there,
6aying he had secured headquarters
for the Tennessee delegation at the
Jefferson Hotel. He give informa
tion as to rates at the various hotels
and suggested the advisability of
the securing of accommodations at I
an early date by all those who de
sire to go to St. Louis during the
convention. The delegates could
take the rooms he had reserved by
giving nptice a week before the
Most of the committee interviewed
were for Parker where they express
ed a choice. None of them favored
reaffirmation of the Kansas City
platform and unanimously they op
posed Mr. Bryan or any other one
man dominating the convention.
In discussing candidates and plat
form, Chairman Thompson said in
an interview: 4I am for Parker.
It is not necessary tu reaffirm the
Kansas City platform. The scheme
of human wisdom was not exhaust
ed in it and doubtless there will be
men at St. Louis able to write a
platform without being either hin
dered or bothered by the Kansas
City platform. I am not in favor
of any one man dominating the convention."
THE FINAL STRUGGLE AFTER
THE MINE DISASTER.
(Written fob thi Bolivar Bolletik)
Reminiscences of tb campaign of 1864-5 ff Gen.
It. E. Lee's army aa remembered by the under -signed.
Gen. Grant did not make
any vigorous movements, hut
busied himself in extending
his lines around Petersburg
Of course there was skirmish
in going on all the while
jand some sharp fighting, all
or which decimated our ranks
and weakened our position,
while Gen. Grant lengthened
his lines, and kept them full
and strong by recruits and
otherwise. Lee had to stretch
out his and make every man
reach his full length. When
Grant made a demonstration
at any. point Gen. Lee had to
take men from other parts of
his line to meet it, and that
kept us on the move nearly
all the time. Our men
having been scantily clothed
and poorly fed, presented an
appearance something like
IJlckens Oliver Twist, when
he was taken out of the
workhouse and apprenticed
to a coffin maker. The land
lady remarked that he was
small and thin "O, yes,''
said the Bendle, "but if vou
feed him, he will grow."
We were probably tall
enough, but we were very
thin. Well. Sunday- the 2nd
ot April, 18G5, dawned bright
and clear, and with it the
federal columns advanced
upon the southern works,
and at a weak point, our
outer line gave way, and fell
back to our inner line. For
tunately there were just in
the rear of the redoubts cap
tured, two strong inclosed
works, covering the ground
over which the enemy must
advance to reach the river.
These works were held by
only a hand full of men.
Gen. Harris' brigade of Iviis
sissippians, or rather a por
tion of the brigade, were sent
to Fort Gregg as reenforce
ments to hold the fort as
long as possible, in order that
Gen T p5 might have time to
occupy his near position
around the City. The gani
son of Fort Gregg consisted
of the 4th Maryland batteiy
with two three inch guns
and 35 men and there were
and others, about 250 men,
armed with muskets. Gen.
Gibbons' Division was ad
vanced to storm and
We were ready to receive
them, every man was at his
post, and every gun in readi
ness. When they got with
in fifty yards of us we let
them have it, and 6ent them
back reeling across the
ground they had passed over.
Rallying his forces, Gibbons
came again and again well
I do not know how often
but the ground was covered
with dead men. I, with a
few others, was sent out to
1 1 V
some old cabins to . check a
detachment of cavalry which
was trying to flank the fort.
Can't tell you how I got from
the fort to the cabins, but I
got there and poured lead in
to the squads that threatened
until I used up all my ammu
nition, except the load in my
gun. I saw the federal flag
floating over the fort, and all
my comrades were gone, so
my only chance was to run.
ft seemed like the whole
Yankee armv saw me, and
the bullets tore up tbe ground
all around me. I feel yet
that if I had been well fed at
that time thev would have
killed me, but I was very thin
and they all missed the mark.
Those who have never tried
it, don't know how fast a
man can run in such a place.
I ran behind a house, took a
long breath, fired my last
load, threw down my gun,
and ran safely into our inner
works. Many of our men
fell that Jay, among whom
was Gen. A. P. Hill.
That night the retreat be
gan. Gen. Lee had ordered
commissary stores to be sent
to Amelia Court House, but I
when we reached that point, I
the rations were not there
and we, "Macawber like"
, , ,, .
had to wait for something to
turn .up. Well, we got a
little mouthful of grub, and
went day and night. I can't
tell you much about what
took place. I had a faith
ful friend with me, whom I
went out with from Home.
We shared what we had, let
it be much or little. We
dropped out one night and
slept until daylight, when
the rear guard was coming
along, and we had to fight all
day or nearly so. Late in
the evening we dopped out
and found a mill on a smad
stream grinding wheat. The
man told u.s to take as much
flour as we wanted. We
fill-d our soiled haversacks
with the precious stuff and
rushed on until we overtook
our command, who were rest
ing. That flour was soon
doing impoitant duty. We
crossed the Appomattox river
at High Bridge. While we
were waiting for the wagons
to get out of way, niy friend
and I who bad a few peas
and a small piece of meat,
kindled a fire and put our
peas and meat on to
cook in a tin bucket. The
shells were bursting over our
heads as we pushed up the
coals around the bucket. At
last we had orders to march.
I ran by thefireand snatched
up the bucket with its boil
ing contents. We carried
that bucket about four mil s
before we had a chance to
eat our peas.
Well, after so long a time
the hungry, tired, foot sore
soldiers called a halt. "Gen
Lee was seen riding to the
rear dressed with more care
than usual, and with his
sword which he rarely wore,
buckled on. It was soon
known that he had surrender
ed. I placed my gun in the
stack for the last time. There
has been a good deal said
about a certain apple tree.
Whether it was there or not I
cannot say. I didn't see it, but
it was said in camp that there
was such a tree, that the
federal soldiers dug it up by
the roots - and sawed into
blocks and carried it away.
The impression on my min
is that there was such a tree,
i T - r i .i .
oul i am saiisueti mat it is
not there now.
Well this ends my war
reminiscences. Of course, I
had to leave out a great deal
of impoi tant matter, and try
to condense as much as possi
ble. Very respectfully yours,
J. M. Morgan,

The teudeticy of medical sciii.ee
is toward preventive measures
The best thought of the world is
being given to the subjec . It is
easier and better to prevent than to
cure. It has been fully demonstrat
d that pneumonia, one of the mosi
dangerous diseases that medical men
have to contend with, can be fire
wnted hy the use of Chamoerlaii.'s
Cough Remedy. Pneumonia al
ways results from a cold or from an
attack of ii fWnzi (grip), and it has
been observed" that this reined i
counteracts any tendency of lhes
diseases toward pneumonia. This
h s been fully proven in many
thousands of cases in which this
remedy has been used during the
threat prvalance of colds and irnp
in recent years, .and can be rel ed
upon with implicit confidence
Pneumonia often results from a
slight cold when no danger is ap
prei. ended until it is suddenly dis
covered that there is fever aud difii
culty in breathing aud pains in t In

patient has pneumonia Be en the
