Gkovek Cleveland, with clear
head, sound judgment and honest
purpose warned the democratic
party against the folly of embracing
free silver. After its adoption, he
predicted that the heresy would be
abandoned, that honest, loyal dem
ocrats would see the mistake and
return to the teachings of the
fathers. The men who heaped
abuse upon Mr. Cleveland for his
honorable, manly and courageous
position are now singing his praises
and calling upon him to lead the
democratic hosts out of the wilder

Tribute to Senator i3ate.
Editor Bulletin I am glad to
see that the Bulletin is a strong
advocate of the reelection of Sen
ator Bate, aud regret to notice
from newspaper accounts that un
fair advantage has been taken of
this grand old man in some parts of
the state, notably in Knoxille, and
I believe the democrats ot Tennes
see ought to and will line up and
condemn such unscrupulous and
eager methods to defeat the choice
of the people, especially when em
ployed against a man of whom the
people of Tennessee have so much
reason to be proud. When we con
sider the long and faithful public
services of Gen. Bate, as a soldier
and as a statesman, and not a
single stain or blemish in all his
long record, we should think our
selves fortunate that the opportuni
ty is still left us to have him for
The visitor to the battlefields of
Chicamauga and Shiloh, where the
positions of troops have been
marked, finds the name of Bate en
graved upon enduring stone.
Where the battle raged fiercest and
the carnage was most fearful, he
was "far in front in the deadly
So the visitor to the nation's
capital to-day finds this maimed and
scarred old soldier from Tennessee
standing like a monument of in
tegrity and honor in the midst of a
perfect sea of political corruption,
"log-rolling and pot-boiling."
When the future historian of
Tennessee shall tell of her illus
trious sons, of Jackson, Sevier,
Polk, Johnson, Grundy, Hugh L.
White, David Crockett and Bed
ford Forrest, glorious as these
names are in the annals of the state
and nation, the name of William B.
Bate will be placed high among
them and he will not suffer in com
parison with the greatest among
them when all elements of true no
bility and greatness are taken into
Instead of "turning him down"
now for some man whose chief
claim is his thirst for office, we
should be thankful that one noble
old Southerner is still left among us,
and honor him in such way as we
can, since in doing so we houor our
selves far more. But, they say
"the young men" are opposed to
Senator Bate. What young rneu?
Certainly not the sons of Confeder
ate veterans? Perhaps it is some
young politicians, who are not so
young after all.- lie makes a sad
mistake who thinks the great
majority of the noble young men of
Tennessee, who have no thought of
pelf and place nor the perquisites of
office, do not honor and revere the
sacred traditions of their native
State, that they do not honor what
is honorable and true. On the
contrary, I believe the young men
of Tennessee will keep green the
memories of those men who paid to
their country's cause the "last full
measure of devotion," or poured out
their blood "like a libation.-" From
such men as Bate they learn the
lessons of patriotism and honor and
devotion to duty and they will ac
count it a pride to walk in the light
of his pure example.
They say Bate is "too old to go
back to the Senate." As a matter
of fact his usefulness and efficiency
are still unimpaired aud in mental
vigor he is fully a match for his
opponent, and if he was really too
old to do anything but vote, that
vote would be an hoDest one.
It is easy to explain why the pol
iticians are against him, as his ex
alted ideas of his duty as a repre
sentative of the people would pre
vent his serving them or lending
himself to their selfish ends.
It is to the people of Tennessee,
whom Bate has 6erved so long and
faithfully that he must look to for
indorsement and support. He
should be sent back to.the Senate
and while he lives he will do his
duty, and when 'he dies, we should
write this epitaph: "He fought the
fight, and he kept the faith," and
his toga should fall upon the
shoulders of some worthy man.

Ex-Gov. Taylor Sued for. Divorce.
Knoxville, Tenn., March 22.
For some time it has been known to
the friends of ex-Gov. Robert- L.
Taylor that the relations between
himself aud wife were strained and
that they have not been living to
gether. This afternoon the expect
ed happened when Mrs. Taylor filed
a bill for absolute divorce and
alimony in Chancery Court through
J. W. Caldwell of this city and
Jones & Fitts, of Tuscaloosa, Ala.
In her bill Mrs. Taylor 6tates that
their relations became unpleasant
six months ago and charges that her
husband has abandoned and failed
to support her. She claims that
she has written him numerous let
ters asking him to resume his rela
tions as her husband but he has
failed to comply. She knows that
he is the owner of considerable
property in Knoxville aud Mem
phis and asks for suitable alimony
and an absolute divorce.
Gov. Taylor and his second wife,
Mrs. Alice Fitts Hill, who now
sues him for divorce, were married
at Tuscaloosa, Ala., September 23,
1901. Mrs. Hill at the time was
planning a trip to California but
the eloquence of Gov. Taylor per
suaded her to a marriage. After
the ceremony they left on a wed
ding trip to Louisville, Ky., and
other cities reaching Knoxville two
weeks later. Last October Mrs.
Taylor went on a visit to friends in
Alabama and since then she has
been in Knoxville but once, spend
ing a few days at the Imperial
Hotel, while the ex-governor was
absent from the city. Mrs. Taylor
is a daughter of Hon. James H.
Fitts, a prominent banker in Mont
gomery and treasurer of the State
From inside sources it is learned
that iu all probability the ex-gov
ernor will not fight the bill but will
allow a decree pro confesso to be
entered and pay the amount of
alimony that the court directs.
Ex-Gov. Taylor has spent the past
three mouths preparing his new
lecture, "Castles in the Air," which
he will give for the first lime to
morrow night at Greenville, Tenn.,
then will follow an engagement of
one hundred lectures which will
take him awav from Tennessee tor
several months. Those who stand
closest to Gov. Taylor say that in
compatibility of temper and trouble
between the families of the two are
the main causes of their separation.
Judge McUorry Dies at Hot Springs.
Jackson, Tenn., March 22.
Judgs Henry W. McCorry, well
known throughout the state, died at
Hot Springs Sunday night. He had
suffered for some months with
rheumatism, and went -to Hot
Springs about ten days ago, seeking
relief. He did not improve, aud
the end came Sunday night. His
sister, Miss Corinne McCorry, was
with him, and will accompany his
remains here for interment. Judge
McCorry was a lawyer of great
ability and a po'itician of extensive
influence in the councils of the
Democratic party. He served on
the bench with ability and distinc
tion until he voluntarily retired to
resume the practice of law. He
leaves nine children and two sisters

Prosperity of the South
Col. Robert J. Lowry, president
of one the banks of Atlanta, is in
Washington telling his friends of
the amount of money the South got
out of the recent cotton boom. He
said: "The cotton crop of the past
season, with its by-products, was
worth to our Georgia planters alone
over 90,000,003. All the gold
and 6'ilver taken out of all the
mines of the United States in a
year does not equal that sum. But
that isn't the whole story, for
Georgia last year used something
over 350,000 bales of cotton in the
textile factories within her borders.
Her total capital invested in these
mills exceeds $32,000,000. Our
farmers were never so well off as
they are now. They are for the
most part out of debt and many
have money in the bank."
