The County Democratic Com
mittee has been called to meet ou
the first Monday in March. Busi
ness of importance is to be traii9
acted and it is necessary that every
member be present.
A most remarkable case is report
ed from Washington. A member
of Congress from Colorado volun
tarily gave up his seat in the Iloase
of Representatives, acknowledging
that he was elected bv fraud.
Gen. Basil Duke, of Kentucky,
has been appointed by the President
as a number of the Shiloh Park
Commission to succeed Col. Patter
eon The position carries with it
a salary of $3,000 and holds for life
. Senator Marcus A. IIanna died
in Washington-Monday evening, lie
was a man of remaikable executive
ability, a patriotic and broad mind
ed American citizen, and one of the
strongest and most prominent mem
bers of his party, whose policies he
was largely instrumental in shaping
and whose victories have been at
tributable to him more thn to any
other one man of recent years.
Bob Taylor, who stands closer to
the masses than any other man in
Tennessee, aud who has made many
sacrifices ior the democratic party,
receiving but little in return, has
his heart set upon a seat iu the
United States Senate. lie announc
ed, however, that he would not op
pose Senator Bite, out of respect to
the man aud the services he has ren
dered his country and his stale.
Noble Bob Taylor! When the
mantle of Senator Bate' falls, we
hope it will rest upon the broad
shoulders of Bob Taylor.
The Martiu Mail says: 4,Wm
J. Bryan has made several free
speeches in Tennessee lately. We
do not know why he is so anxious
to make speeches, ui.less it is to
boost his declining popularity. Mr.
Bryan is simply injuring himself in
the eyes of the American people
upon the position he takes on
national politics. He seems to be
at outs with every movement pro
posed for harmony, and wants to
have a say so in the councils of the
party. He is just an ordinary pri
vate citizen of the United States,
made doubly so by the people re
tiring him twice to the innocuous
desuetude of private life, and he
should be content to rest there,
hoping and trusting that the demo
crats will see something belter than
it saw in him aud that victory will
perch upoti their banner."
Col. Josiaii Tattersox died in
Memphis Thursday morning, Febru
ary lllh, after a short illness in the
67th vear of his age. Col. Patter-
son began life with but little of this
world's goods, bat wilh a determina
tion to succeed. He was studious
and his energy knew no bounds. lie
taught school in his younger days
and saved enough from his salary to
purchase a few. law books, which he
mastered. In time he was admitted
to the bar and later became a lawyer
of great ability and' distinction.
His record as a Confederate soldier
is one of honor and credit. After
the war, he removed from Alabama,
his native state, to Memphis and re
sumed the practice of law, which he
followed successfully for many
years. He entered the political
arena in the latter years of his life
and served several terms iu Congress
of the United States, where he was
recognized as une of the ablest mem
bers of that body. He was a man
of decided convictions and had the
manhood and courage to maiutaiu
them. He refused to trim his sails
to catch the popular political breez
es, when he did not believe them
just and right. He was que of
the few prominent men of the South
who stood by his convictions on the
financial question. So powerful, so
logical and convincing were his ar
guments on this question that his
services were in demand through
out the country and his reputation
became national. Time has proven
that his position was right, but it
sealed his political future. He ac
cepted defeat gracefully aud return
ed to the practice of his profession.
Col. Patterson was a man of kind
heart, generous nature, devoted
to his family, loyal to his friends,
broad aud patriotic in his views.
He was not a successful politician
he abhored deceit, was frank,
est and outspoken. He had
many noble and admirable traits of
character and his death is a loss to

Tennessee Delegation May Go Uuin
structed. According to leading poli
ticians, Tennessee's delega
tion to the Democratic Na
tional Convention will go mi
instructed, so as to be free to
cast the vote of this State for
a man who is agreeable and
one who can be elected.
There is one movement on
to have the delegation from
the State instructed, but men
who are familiar with nation
al politics say that this will
help to tie the matter up,
and if other States did the
same there would probably
be a deadlock, if not a tpli t,
in the convention.
"If a Tennessean were a
candidate for the nomination
then it would be right and
proper," said one of the lead
ing Demociats of the State
yesterday, "for his delegation
to be instructed for him.
Tennessee is more than any
thing else interested now in
selection of the man that can
win more than any particular
man. We all have our favor
ites, of course, but we would
be poor democrats if we
would not relegate our per
sonal choices for the choice
of the party.
"There is no secret about
the fact that the party to-day
does not know who the nomi
nee will be. The paity is now
lor the strongest
man, and he will be
if the rank and file of the
party will continue on sane
lines, those which Senator
P.att declared to be danger

"It is admitted that to win
we must carry New York,
New Jersey and Maryland.
The same man who can carry
those States, can, I believe,
also sweep Connecticut, In
diana and Illinois. Then
with the States we count on
as certain the Democratic
nominee will be rushed into
the White House over frag
ments of eyeglasses and pro
truding teeth. The party
knows well what States we
must cany to win: would it
not then be the height of
folly for Tennessee demo-
crats, when ennessee is cer
tainly a Democratic State, to
antagonize the demociats on
whose efforts victory de
pends? "Tennessee should there
fore send her delegation un
instructed, composed of men
who want the ynirty to win
more than they care for the
nomination of any particular
man. Then the Tennessee
delegation will be able to aid
in carrying the party to vic
tory, to aid in the selection
of a good man, to have some
voice in outlining democra
cy's future. If we instruct
for any one we will tie our
hands, and we may aid in
causing complications mat
will hurt the chance or the
man nominated, even if he
be the man for whom we are
instructed. We must, above
all, have no fight among our
selves. We will have fight
ing enough to do after the
nomination is made. Let us

not approve of the forced

do I dislike the fight against

Carniack's Tribute to Patterson
Washington, Fe 1G. Senator
Carinack pnys ihe following tribute
to the late Col. Jusiah Patterson:
'Col. Patterson was one of the
most powerful fpeakers I ever heard,
either at the bar or on the stump.
His speeches in detente of the gold
standard were, in mv opinion, far
superior to those of Carlisle or any
other man who spoke on thit side
of the question lie and I had a
number of joint 'ebates on the
question before we became rival
candidates for congress, but always
in the best of temper. He once
told me that I debated tbe question
more fairly than any one be had
met, and I certainly think that he
debated more ably."
