Cbockktt County democrats in
convention at Alamo Monday in
structed for Senator Bate.
Dyer County swings into the
Bate column, the democratic con
vention, at Dyer6burg Monday in
8tructing for him unanimously.
Only a few more days before the
primary. Next Tuesday, March
15tb, is the date. Two important
offices are to be filled, Sheriff and
Trustee. Remember the date and
come out and vote.
. The House Committee on Elec
tions has decided by unanimous
vote the contested election case of
Davis vs. Sims from the Eight
Congressional District of Tenneseee
in favor of Representative Sims.
The Bate democrats of Knox
County held a rousing meeting at
Knoxville recently. Among the
speakers was Col. W. L. Ledger
wood, senator of Knox County.
Col. Ledgerwood praised Senator
Bate, reviewed his record and re
ferred to McMillin as 'the man
who was with the Confederacy in
heart and soul, but not in body."
The McMillin boom is beginning
to be understood by the Democrats
since they have read the facts in the
case. It is a smooth trick to cap
ture a floterial district composed of
six or eight counties, and publish
each county as having gone for Mc
Millin down through the whole list,
till the eight counties have been
published as going for McMillin,
making it appear as if McMillin had
eight votes, where in point of fact
he will only have one. Tipton Re
If all the lies that have been told
on Grover Cleveland were published,
they would make a volume. The
latest, is that he dined with a negro
wiule-JPfeside-Ql. He savs there is
not one word of truth in it. Some
people and a few little political
sheets that Mr. Cleveland would not
wipe his feet on, are. so anxious to
detract from his increasing populari
ty, that they will say or publish
anything they think calculated to
injure himT He is the greatest
living statesman in America to-day.
FOR APRIL 19.
The Democratic Congress
ional committee metTuesday
morning at Gaston's Hotel,
and after a session that lasted
but little over an hour, adopt
ed a resolution calling a con
vention in Memphis for April
19, the delegates to which are
to be selected by mass con
ventions in the various
counties of the district on
The meeting was called to
order by Chairman James F.
Hunter, of Shelby, .and Sec
retary G P. Smith read the
roll call, which showed the
following to be present:
W. It. Harrell, of Shelby;
James F. Hunter, of Shelby;
John W. Bailey, of Shelby,
proxy for J. W. Jones, of
Hardeman: Dr. J. A. Al
bright, of Fayette and Hugh
T. Simonton, of Tipton.
Dr. .AJbright offered the
following resolution, which
was seconded by Mr. Bailey
and was unanimously adopt
ed. "Resolved, first, That a
delegated convention be held
in the city of Memphis at
the county courthouse, on
Tuesday, April 19, 1904, at
10 o'clock a. m., for the pur
pose ot nominating a Demo
cratic candidate for Congress
in the Tenth Congressional
district, and transacting such
other business as may come
"Resolved, second, That
the Congressional committee
man in each county in the
said Congressional district is
hereby empowered, author
ized and ordered to call a
mass convention in his re
spective county, to be held
at the county courthouse at
11 o'clock a. m., of that day,
for Shelby county, and at 1
p. m., of that day for Fayette
Hardeman, and Tipton coun
ties, for the purpose of select
ing delegates to the delega
ted convention to be held in
Memphis on the following
Tuesday, April 19, 1904, at
11 o'clock a. m.
Resolved, third, That each
county shall select one dele
gate for each fifty votes or
fractional part thereof over
twenty-four cast for the
Democratic nominee for
Governor in the November
election, 1902, said delegates
to be selected from the civil
dirtrict or ward where said
vote was cast."
There was some consider
able discussion among the
members ot the committee af
ter the adoption of this reso
lution and it was well under
stood among them that Hon.
M. 11. Patterson, the present
incumbent, will have no op
position for the Congress
ional nomination. Asa mat
ter of fact, the calling of the
convention is merely for the
purpose of legally ratifying
the will of the Democratic
party in this district.
Under the basis of repre
sentation adopted by the
committee, there will be 1G9
delegates in the convention
to be held in Memphis on
April 19, which will be ap
portioned as follows:
Shelby county 82, Fayette
county 21, Tipton county 31

The one now in use, he says, is so
damp that the health of his horses
is suffering. They are threatened
with influenza, according to the
president, who uses Secretary Taft
as a witness, and he wants a new
home built for them on higher
ground before they catch the disease
and are permanently affected.
Col. Symous, superintendent o
public buildings and grounds, in a
report to Secretary Taft, said that a
number of the president's best
horses practically have been ruined
by being kept in the old stables,
which are damp and unhealthful.
The president keeps eight horses in
the stable, aud Archie's pony,
Algonquin, also is kept there.
