We are authorized to announce H. E. CARTER
as a candidate for reelection to the Legislature
from Hardeman County, subject to the action of
the Democratic parly.
It begins to look like Parker.

W. B. Henderson, a brilliant
and promising young attorney o
Memphis, committed suicide Sun
day evening at Germantown by
shooting himself through the head
with a revolver. Remorse from
drink he assigned as the cause o
the unfortunate tragedy.
The different political democratic
factions in Memphis, through their
chosen representatives, have reach
ed an agreement by which the
threatened bolt in the party ranks
has been declared off for the present,
at least until November. We move

The announcement of Hon. II
K. Carter, candidate for reelection
to the Legislature from Hardeman
County, subject to the action of the
democratic party, appears elsewhere
in to-day's Bulletin. Mr. Carter
needs no introduction at our hands,
he is well known to the people of
Hardeman County, and he stands
upon the record he made in the last
Legislature, and he is ready to de
fend it. He will appreciate the
support of the democratic voters.
TnE friends of Mr. W. J. Craw-
tord, of Memphis, are supporting
him for delegate to the National
Democratic Convention from the
Tenth District. Tipton County has
already instructed its delegates for
him. Hardeman's delegation, which
13 composed or every democrat in
me county, is uninstrucieu, out in
the opinion of the Bulletin they
could not vote for a better demo
crat or a truer man than W. J.
Crawford. He has stood the test.
has always proven loyal to bis party
and to his country. He is an ex
Confederate soldier, and favors Sen
ator Bate's reelection.
Mr. Bryan is bitterly opposed to
the platform adopted by New York
democrats (who indorsed Judge
Parker for president) which he
claims is "dishonest, fit only for a
dishonest party." The Memphis
Morning News, heretofore on the
Bryan side of the fence, rises to re
mark: "Mr. Bryan is a great man,
and he still has a warm place in the
hearts of the rank and file of the
Democracy, but he is not greater
than his party, and his personal
opinions and preconceived con
clusions will not be allowed to over
balance the concensus of Democrat
ic wisdom. He has been wont to
dictate too much. It is his worst
fault. He has been laying down the
platforms for the national conven
tions instead of leaving the conven
tions frame the platforms for him.
He finds it impossible, therefore, to
understand how Judge Parker
should be willing to leave the enun
ciation of questions upon which
there is differences of opinion
among Democrats to the united wis
dom of his party in convention as
sembled. Judge Parker is willing
to abide the decision of that conven
tion as to what the platform shall
be and to stand upon it after it has
been made. To take any other
position would be equivalent to
saying that he is greater than his
party, and that it must bend to his
views instead of his conforming to
its will. The party is weary of
dictators. It wants to make its
own platforms, and it wants candi
dates who will stand on those plat
forms. It is because Parker does
not set himself above the will of
the organization that the body of
the Democracy everywhere is turn
ing to him as a man upon whom all
Washington, April 22. Repre
sentative Patterson today expressed
himself as deeply and gratefully ap
preciative of the action of the Tenth
district Democratic convention in
its renomination of him for con
gress. 4,It was impossible for me to at
tend the convention which has com
pumeniea me witn a tnira unani
mous nomination," said Mr. Patter
son, "but you will oblige me by
teudering my heartfelt thanks to the
Democrats who have so honored me.'
"Une teature of the convention
was particularly pleasing, and that
was the manifest and generous dn
position to accord me credit as :
representative of all the people o
the district. It has indeed been my
earnest effort to command myself to
the Democracy as a whole, to voice
their sentiments on the floor of the
house as I understood them, and in
all the votes that I have cast faith
fully to represent their interests."
Mr. Patterson was prevented from
going to the convention by the se
vere illness of Mrs. Patterson, who
is now convalescing, but who is stil
under a physician's care at the Pat
terson s Washington home in the

Stockmen to Organize.
Knoxville, Tenn., April 24. The
following circular letter is being
sent out by Prof. A. M. Soule, o;
the University of Tennessee:
The live stock interests of Tennes
see have been looking up very much
of late and there is a general feeling
that the stockmen should get togetb
er and organize. A stock breeder's
association is now in existence in
every state where the live stock in
terest is an important consideration.
At the request of a number of lead
ing stock breeders the writer hereby
issues a call for a meeting to be held
at the State Capitol, in Nashville,
on May 18, for the purpose of or
ganizing a live stock breeders' asso
ciation forTennessee and discussing
matters o general interest to the
The Tennessee World's Fair Com
mission has agreed to pay transpor
tation charges on live stock to and
from the World's Fair. It has also
authorized the appointment of a live
stock inspector, whose duty it shall
be to work up an interest in this
exhibit. It is of the ntmost im
portance that the stockmen of the
state get together and take action on
this very important matter. A cred
itable display at St. Louis will do
more to advertise Tennessee live
stock and- create a demand for it
than anything else that could be
done at the present time.
There is not a stockman in Ten
nessee who is not interested in this
meeting You can afford to make
the necessary sacrifice to go and
push along a project that means so
much to the state. The very best
men in the state are interested in
this movement, which is absolutely
open and above board. Our stock
men have long wanted just such an
opportunity, and now that it has
come, let them take full advantage
of it. lhe sending of a represent!
tive exhibit of horses, mules, cattle
sheep and swine to St. Louis is only
the beginning of the good work a
live stock association can do for the
Through the office of a permanent
secretary a record of the different
breeders can be maintained aud thus
reliable information of the greatest
value to them and to intending pur
chasers would always be available.
The character of stock maintained
by the various breeders would be

ment of the live stock of the state
could be conducted with gratifying
results. The need for an aggressive
organization was shown by the out
rageous "attempt made to bar the

This meeting is purely in the in
terest of the live stock breeders of
the state. There is now an oppor
tunity to push Tennessee live stock
to the front and make a record of
which the breeders of the state will
be proud. The success of this meet
ing will depend on the enterprise of
the breeders. Do not fail to be
there and shoulder your part of the
responsibility. A tentative program
will be issued shortly.

When Gen. Grant was marching
through Virginia an old lady sent
her grandson out to ask him where
he was going. Said Grant: 'Go
tell your grandma I am going to
Petersburg or Richmond, or to
heaven or hell." In a few minutes
the boy came back to him and said:
Grandma says you can't go to Pe
tersburg, Gen. Beauregard is there;
you can't go to Richmond, Gen.
Lee is there; and you can't go to
heaven because Gen. Jackson is
Camp Corinth, April 8, 1862.
There seems to be a desire on the
part of both political parties in Ten
nessee to give the whiskey men the
shake during the present campaign,
each party protesting that they have
nothing iu common with them. As
result, the "wets" are, in the
chaste language of Col. Watterson,
"between hell and the ironworks,"
and it is very probable they will
not cut any figure in the election.
The fact that both parties repudiate
the whiskey faction is very signifi
cant. It shows that their power
is waning, and that they are not con
sidered as important a factor as in
the past when they were usually
courted and given the glad hand
by every candidate from the Presi
dent down to Constable. The tem
perance flag is triumphant all over
the State, and the talk of the Adams
aw being repealed by the next Leg
islature is sheer nonsense. If there
is any change it will be to extend the
Adams law so as to reach the cities,
but it is not probable there will be
any change. .Newport 1'iain laiK.
