The renomination of a candidate
for Congress, without opposition,
is something unusual in the Tenth
District, but such an honor was
conferred upon Hon. M. R Patter
son Tuesday. In the past, thia dis
trict has been the scene of many
fiercely fought political battles and

didacy, the political ieeling over
the district was intensely bitter
again-a his lamented father, and hi
closest friends even had grave
doubts of his success, so much so
that they attempted to dissuade him
from making the race; bat he was
determined, and said that if he
could meet the people he believed
he would win. He had faith
in the people and confidence in him
nelf. He met them acd won. His
course in Congress has been clean,
dignified and able. He has been
prompt in attendance upon its ses
sions, loyal to his party and faith
ful to his constituents. He is
recognized by his fellow members
as an exceptionally brilliant man
and has been placed upon important
committees. His remarks are al
ways sensible and to the point and
are ,iven marked attention. His
days of usefulness as a public ser
vant are just beginning. Men of
his stripe, who have honor and
merit, should be kept in office.
The Bulletin desires to conuratu
late Mr. Patterson, also the people
of the Tenth District, upon his re-
nomination, which is equivalent to
A handsome Confederate monu
ment was unveiled at Gallatin,
Tenn., on September 20, 1903
Among the speakers on that oc
casion was Hon. E. W. Carmack.
We make the following extracts
from his eloquent and appropriate
remarks: "This monument, let me
say, is raised no, simply to tell the
world of the valor and fortitude
of the Confederate soldier they
have builded for themselves a mon
ument more lasting than brass and
higher than the regal summit of the
pyramids, a monument broad based
on the universal admiration of man
kind, and which will uwr to
heaven when the mateli st invm r tlf
of princes shall be trampitd ino
formless and unhallowed dui Nu.
my friends, this monument is not to
perpeiuate their glory. Its chief
purpose is to proclaim that you, my
countrymen, are proud to honor
their deeds and to claim them as
the noblest heritage of yourselves
and your children forever. If you
shall ever cease to do so, this monu
ment to their glorj will be a monu
ment to your shame. I know
that no such dishonor will ever
brand the laureled brow of this
proud and historic old county
a county which gave three thousaud
of her best and bravest to the cause
of the South; whose valor was tried
and tested in the blaze and thunder
of the greatest war that ever shook
the earth, who stood with the Buffer
ing Sooth through four stormy
years on the red edge of battle, un
til every field was drenched and
every river ran red with the blood
of her sons. And suffer me here to
pay my humble tribute to one of the
many hero sons of Sumner County,
one whose name will ever be glori
ous in the records of fame, who,
thank God! is still spared to be the
shepherd of his people, a shining
example of civic virtue as of martial
valor. Full of years, full of fame,
and full of honors, he will bear with
him to the grave the blessings of
his country and a record without
the spot of an unworthy or an un
knightly deed. Until Sumner
County becomes ashamed of an in- j
tegrny vnai kuows uu c&.ucbo auu
a valor that knows no fear, it will
exult in the name and fame of Wil
liam B. Bate."
Mrs. W. J. "Redd was sum
moned to Trenton on Monday last
to the bedside of her little grand
daughter, Vivian Jewell, who was
seriously burned about the face,
throat and neck. A message Tues
day morning stated that the little
sufferer died at 4 o'clock. The
sympathy of Bolivar friends is ex
tended to Rev. and Mrs. S. L. Jew
ell in their great loss.
The Democratic convention for
the tenth congressional district of
Tennessee, was held Tuesday in the
courthouse at Memphis. Hon. M.
R. Patterson was renominated for
Congress amid the acclamations of
the entire convention. There was
no opposition of any description to
bis candidacy, and his nomination
was made unanimous. The conven
tion enthusiastically endorsed Sena
tor W. B Bate for re election to
the United States Senate. A demon'
oration of the most pronounced
k;ud followed the reading of that

read tha formal c.il for the conven

f. laced in nomination for temporary
chairman. He was elected without
opposition. Will Scruggs, of Fay
ette county, -and Floyd Bringle, of
Tiptou county, were then elected
secretary and assistant secretary of
the convention without opposition.
A motion to make the temporary
orgamzatiou permanent then pre
vailed. Upon the motion of J. W. Dur

convention as follows: G. T. Fitz
hugh and K. D McKellar, Shelby
county; E. E Wilkes,. Hardeman
county; C. A. Staiuback, Fayette
county; R. H. Green, Tipton county.
This committee then retired to

asked for and selected by the various
delegations as follows: 11 ugh Simou

man; H. F. G. Buford, Fayette;
John Dickinson and W. A. McNeil,
This committee shortly afterward
reported that there were no contest
ing delegations and that the dele
gates "as submitted from Fayette,
Tipton, Hardeman and Shelby
would be allowed to stand. The
report was adopted unauimously.
The committee on resolutions
then announced its readiness to re
port, and Chairman Fitzhugh read
"Resolved, By the Democracy of
the Tenth Congressional District, in
convention assembled, that we ex
press our hearty approval of the
course of our distinguished repre
sentative, Hon. M. R Patterson,
whose high order of ability aud un
swerving fidelity have caused him
to rank among the most influential
members of Congress, and have
made for him a record of which his
constituents are justly proud, and
which give promise of a public
career of even greater usefulness

upon his recent mamerly speech, in
which he portrayed with telling ef

the entire State of Tennessee are to
be congratulated on the able,

by the unanimous voice of his party,
will again be ch isen as its trusted
and iuviucible leader, aud to whom
we pledge our unfaltering loyalty
"Resolved further, That we ex
press our patriotic pride in the
career of Senator E W. Carmack,
who, by extraordinary intellectual
force and courageous statesmanship
has become a leader of national
power and distinction.

grand old soldier and true Southern
statesman, the Hon. William B.
Bate, for re-election to the United

time when political charlatinasm and
chicanery are so often resorted to

has always and under all circum

We indorse him because at a time
when bribery, boodling and official
vice prevail to such an alarming ex

is found in the very halls of the
national capital, we need the stal

courage and the uncorrupti -de in

Yesterday was the birthd ay of
that great apostle of Democracy and
human liberty Thomas Jefferson
The anniversary was celebrated last
night by the IroquoisClub of Chica
go, and speeches were made bj
Senators Carmack, Culberson, Pat
terson and Newlands, Gen. Miles,
Adlai Stevenson, William F. Vilas.
Mayor Uarriscn and Gov. Garvin,
of Rhode Island. An article on
Jefferson by Judge Alton B. Par
ker has been published recently. It
was written a few weeks ago for the
Jefferson Memorial Association,
which is undertaking to raise fu..dc
for the erection in Washington of a
monumeut to Jefferson.
In this article referring to the
Declaration of Independence, Judge
Parker says: "The words of Jeffer
son in that document, signed by the
people's representatives, not onlj
made the people think, but it show
ed that there is no divinity that
doth hede an unjust king; it level
ed the barriers ot came and taught
the people to see that there is no
true aristocracy except it be found
ed upon virtue and talent; it told
men that they Mere entitled to the
free ute of the natural gifts of God.
to the right to labor and to en
joy the fruits of that labor; to thr
right to the heretofore unenjoyed
prerogatives of life, liberty aud the
pursuit of happiness so far as was
consistent with the equal rights of
all. It revealed to the people tLat
they were the source from which
sprung all power lodged in govern
ment, and that providence had not
sent a few men into the world,
ready booted and spui red, to rule,
aud millions, ready saddled and
bridled, to be ridden."
Concerning Jefferson's faith in
the people, Judge Parker writes:
"There is one sublime idea of which
Jefferson " is the greatest exponent
aud concerning which he was ever
as consistent as is the sun in his
rising and his setting, aud that was
faith iu the wisdom of the people as
the final arbiters of all public
questions ... .Jefferson has rightly
been called the apostle of individual
ism. When he gave liberty to the
individual he also bestowed upon
him character. He k new that the
character of the State mirrors forth
the character ot the citizen, and
that a government is admirable or
otherwise according to the aggre
gate of culture in the populace."
Judge Parker is a Democrat of
the Jeffersonian school, having
faith in the people aud confidence
in their aggregated wisdom. He is
the apostle of no new Democracy, of
radicalism aud revolution, but ac
cording to all his acts and utterances
is a Democrat whom all Democrats
can cherrfully support. Nashville
