Jk&e Baxter, a prominent citi
zen of Tennessee, died in Nashville
W . D. Joplik, one of the pioneer
citizens of West Tennessee, died
last Saturday in the 84th year of his
age. He served as sheriff of Mc
Nairy County for over thirty years.
Senator Galliger, republican,
of New Hampshire, has an eye to
business. While bis party is mak
ing haste to spend the peoples' mon
ey, he proposes to assist them,
hence has introduced a bill to in
crease the salaries of all executive
officers from President to members
of Congress, which includes him
self. If this bill passes, he will re
ceive eight instead of five thousand
per annum. The Senator seems to
be somewhat selfish. 1 He could
have been broader in his viears and
included all government employes
in his graft.
Ex-Congressman Joseph E.
Washington has just returned from
a visit to the national capital and
in epeaking of politics to a Nash
ville Banner reporter said:
"I found one sentiment very
general, and that is that all this
talk of nominating Hearst is doing
a great deal of harm. By those
who know him personally and are
acquainted with his record, Le is
considered absolutely uufit for the
place. His only qualification is his
money, and we have not reached
that miserable state yet where the
presidential nomination is up for
sale -to the highest bidder."
The democrats of Lauderdale
County met in mass convention at
Ripley Tuesday, and adopted among
other resolutions, the following:
"We indorse the record and high
public service of the Hon. Wm. B.
Bate in the Senate of the United
States, in the Governor's chair and
on many Southern battlefields. He
has in public and private life exhib
ited all those virtues which have
made the Volunteer State illustrious
in history and the pride of her i.v
ble manhood and womanhood. We
hereby instruct our delegates this
day appointed to the floterial con
vention to use every honest endeav
or to have said convention instruct
its nominee for Gen. Bate for re
election to the United States Sen
ate." A negro in Mississippi recently
killed a white man, an engineer.
Public sentiment was incensed and
threats of lynching and burning
were made. The sheriff of the
county in which the murder was
committed notified Gov. Vardeman
of the situation. . The Governor at
once chartered a special train and
with a company of state malitia
went to the scene of the trouble,
quited the crowd and landed the
prisoner safely in jail at Jackson.
The murderer will doubtless - meet
the fate he deserves at a speedy and
impartial trial. Gov. Vardeman,
in explaining his course, stated that
he had taken a solemn oath to up
hold the law, and that he intended
to do so at all hazards. He deserv
es praise for his prompt action in
this matter and if he continues to
follow along the Hue of duty mark
ed out, he will not alone reflect
credit upon himself, but upon his
state, whose fair name has been in
jured by too frequent resorts to
deeds of lawlesness and violence.
The Charlotte, N. C, Observer,
declaring that there was never any
thing so grotesque in the history of
American politics as the candidacy
of young Mr. Hearst for the Presi
dencyadds: "But it is no longer a thing to be
laughed at, nor can it be whistled
down by the wind.
"Because it has the sympathy
and support of Mr. William J. Bry
an. It is not to be doubted that
Hearst and Bryan are in league for
the control of delegates to the
national convention. Can Hearst
be nominated? No. He believes
he can be, and his candidacy is
earnest. Bryan is older and wiser.
He knows that" neither he nor
Hearst can secure the nomination,
but in" the Democratic national
convention a two-thirds vote is
necessary. to nominate, and he hopes
that the two can control more than
one-third of the delegates. If they
can prevent it, no man who can be
elected can be nominated, and,
having himself twice failed, Bryan
is determined that no other man
bearing the badge of the national
Democracy shall succeed.
"These are the facts that the
party has to confront. Hearst is
not spending his money and apply
ing his low cunning to this situation
for the purpose of advertising his
papers, as some 'believe he is en
gaged in a bona fide effort to get
the presidency, and knows no moro
than to believe that his success is a
probability. Bryan knows better;
he has another object. He pro
poses, by a combination of his and
Hearst's forces, to defeat the nomi
nation of any man who can be elect
ed. "This is harsh, but it it is true,
and the Democratic party has to
reckon with this situation whether
it believes it or not."
LAST OF THE OLD GUARD
Ex-Gov. Taylor Pleads for
Knoxville, Tenn., Feb. 24.
Ex-Gov. Robert L. Tay
lor, who is now at his home
in this city, gave out for pub
lication today the following
appeal in behalf of Senator
"The question is this, as I
see it: Whether Tennessee

"The sons of Confederate
veterans have foimed them
selves into an organization
to perpetuate the chivalry
and glory of their fathers in
that struggle. The daugh
ters of the Confederacy are
organized to show to the
world that they are not
ashamed of the heroes who
passed through four years of
suffering and death lor what
they thought was right.
These two organizations meet
every year with the remnants
of the Confederate armies to
cheer them at their reunions
and to scatter flowers alon
their path as they hobble by
on crutches and with empty
sleeves, with forms stooped

Yes, as brave a man as,ever

Yes, as true as any knight

as honest as Lee and as
chivalrous as Forrest. Then
why take from his aged
brow the laurel wreath which

God pity the land that turns
its back on its heroes because
they are old. If I could get
the ear of Tennessee I would
utter these words: "Remem

Senator Bate is here from Washing
ton to remain a week or ten days
looking after his fences. Of his
presence here he says:
'There has been so much written
and said about the inauguration of
the latest innovation, known as
snap conventions, which were in
tended to be detrimental to my
candidacy and which proved to be
so in one or two instances, 1 thought
that it was due my friends as well
as myself that I should come home
and give some attention to my cau
didacy for re-election. For the
first time during my service of
seventeen years I Lave returned
home to look after my political in

session, but I do not intend to
neglect anything -that I can consist

are giving me, their enthusiastic

Race Problem Is Becoming National
The Philadelphia Ledger
notes that while forereries
and crimes requiring educa
tion are least common.
violent crimes bv neirroes
figure numerously in the po
lice and court .records, and
the increasing numbers lead
the Ledger to believe that
the most dangerous element
of the negro population has
been moving from the South
ern States northward, and it
bases this belief on the fact
that in January, 1901, 95 per
cent, of the persons tried for
burglary and robbery were
negroes, and more than two
thirds of those convicted
were recent arrivals from the
If this be so, and it doubt
less is, as stated, bad negroes
have made up a part at least
of the migration, but the
fact shows that the negroes
who are shiftless and attempt
to live in a Northern State as
easily as they do in the
South, by doing odd jobs and
preying upon the negro wo
men do not find such facili
ties in Northern States, and
being destitute, they take
the readiest method of mak
ing a raise.
But, however all this may
be, the fact remains that
there is a steady and very
considerable drift of negroes
from the South into North
ern States, and they create
the conditions wherever they
may be, which go to make up
a race problem. When all
the Northern Slates shall
have, as they sooner or later
will, a race problem in their
midst, their people will have
a better understanding of it,
and be more reasonable as to
the best means of treating it.
