One of the most valued iustitu
tiona of our city is St. Katharine's,
the commencement exercises of
which have been in progress this
week. From this justly celebrated
school, many noble women have
been graduated, and have exerted
an influence for a higher and better
life, reflecting credit not only upon
themselves, but upon their alma-
mater. The Bchool has achieved
its enviable reputation chiefly
through the work of its principals,
in whose selection the management
has been fortunate. The present
incumbent, Miss Elizabeth J. Joy
ner, is a woman of culture and re
finernent, a graduate of Vassal, de
voted'to her profession and has a
high conception of her duly. Under
her guidance and control, the stand
ard of the school has been maintain
ed, and tor more than two years she
has given her best efforts to its
upbuilding and improvement. In
her good work, she deserves the
hearty cooperation of the citizens of
Bolivar, which the Bulletn sin
cerely hopes she will receive.
Parker for President, Frazier for
Nashville, Term., May 25.
Late to-night, after wildly
exciting scenes, the Demo
cratic State Convention ad
journed until 10 o'clock to
morrow morning. James B.
Frazier has been nominated
to succeed himself as Gov
ernor and a platform instruct
ing delegates to the national
convention to vote for the
nomination of Judge Alton
B. Parker, of New York for
President, and to vote as a
unit on all questions, has
been adopted. Further than
this the convention has not
gone. A contest for the
Knox county representation
has been the stumbling block.
The committee on creden
tials did not report until
9:30 o'clock tonight, its de
cision being in favor of what
is known as the "Regulars."
The confusion following this
report was almost indescriba
ble. When order was finally
restored the committee on
resolutions was heard, the re
port being unanimously
The unanimous nomina
tion of Gov. Frazier was
next in order, and at the con
clusion of his speech of ac
ceptance, the convention at
11:05 adjourned until to-morrow.
