The democrats of the good old
county of Rutherford have indorsed
IJknry Doyle's vote in nothing
that he should be ashamed oi.
True he was defeated, but he has
many friends who stood by him
Haywood County democrats met
in mass convention at Brownsville
Saturday. The name of Bate pro
voked prolonged clierrs, and the
convention to a man indorsed him
G. M. Savage made one of the.
most active, honorable and clean
campaigns ever conducted in Har
deman County, lie was defeated
by a few votes but he ought to be
proud of his race.
With much of the material ith
which ex-Gov. Mc.Millin is surround
ing himself in Davidson County,
we have little? patience. It is not
of a character to inspire either our
admiration or our confidence in the
ex-Governor's iudsnieut. If he
cannot do better, he is likely to see
the veteran of Shiloh run off with
the prize at the April primary
The- Bate convention to rejrgan
ize the democratic party in Knox
County was held last Thursday in
Knoxville. Between eisrht hun
dred and one thousand people were
present. Senator Ledgerwood was
elected chairman and made a speech
in which he charged that Benton
McMillin had spent the greater part
of the four years he was governor
in building up a machine that
would elect him to the United
States Senate. Resolutions were
adopted indorsing Senator Bate.
Tue tact that IIo.i. M. R. Patter
son has no opposition for renomina-
tion to Congress from this district
is a just and deserving tribute to a
brilliant and braiuv man. lie has
made a faithful and able representa
tive and has looked carefully after
the interests of his constituents
He differs from some members of
Congress, in that he is not addict
ed to the habit of making numer

Representatives, he always says
The death of Dr. T. E. Moore
removes a landmark He was one
of the pioneer citizens of West
Tennessee. He came to Bolivar on
horseback, sixtv years aero, from
Alabama, wnen this country was
almost a wilderness. The horse he
rode, the bridle and saddle and a
very small amount of money were
his only possessions. Fresh from
college, full of energy, with confi
dence in himself, he "put out his
shingle." Other and older physi
cians of prominence were here, and
the new comer had a hard struggle
to establish himself. He has more
than once told the writer of the
many difficulties he encountered,
but always successfully overcame,
lie had merit and a determination
to succeed, and he did succeed. He
was a man of most remarkable
energy and endurance, a splendid
specimen of well preserved man
hood, a genial, courteous, old-time
Southern gentleman. II i s life was
full of good deeds. He was always
a friend of the poor and unfortunate,
and he did as much charitable
practice, perhaps, as any physician
who ever lived. He was devoted to
his profession and was an honor to
it. He responded to calls always,
and many time3, in later years,
when he was ailing greater than the
patient he visited, often too, without
hope of reward. He was a great
and good man. Everybody in
Hardeman County knew him and
loved him and we will all miss him.
Peace to the ashes of Dr. Moore !
I desire to return my sincere
thanks to those who voted for me,
and to those who voted, for my op
ponent I hold no ill will. To my
friends who stood by me so nobly
in the election I 'wish to say I have
a heart fall of precious memories
for them. May the God of Heaven
guard and guide, prosper and protect
"ob aui every .one is my prayer.
