The action was more of a rebuke to

Judging from indications Nom

election laws his chief object ol
attack. There was a time in Ten
nessee when a large per cent, of the
wnite citizens ana property owners
of the State were not permitted to
vote. That was when Mr. Little

Honors for Patterson.
The lion. Malcolm R. Patterson,
member of the congress from the
Tenth district of Tennessee, and the
unanimous choice of the Democratic
party to succeed himself, has been
invited to be one of the orators of
the day at the big Fourth of July
celebration of Tammany Hall in
New York. The invitation is re
garded as a splendid compliment for
the Memphian, who during his
short career in the national house of
representatives, has come to be re
crarded as one of the hnest orators
in that body.
Mr. Patterson stated yesterday
he had not yet decided whether he
would be able to accept the invita
tion, although he greatly appreci
ted the compliment. He will proba
bly make his decision in a few days,
and the announcement is eagerly
awaited by his friends. Mr. Patter
son leaves tonight for SC. Louis,
where he will be one of the orators
of the day od Wednesday, when the
alumni of all the Christian Broth
ers' Colleges of the United States
will gather in convention. Mr.
Patterson is the vice president of
the alumni society of the local col
lege, and will be the recipient of
many courtesies while in St. Louis
A number of the local members wil
accompany Mr. Patterson."
Should Mr. Patterson accept the
invitation to speak on the fourth,
Tennessee would be especially, wel
represented and honored. Gov.
Frazier recently received an in vita
tion to be one of the speakers, and
with the State's chief executive and
one of its foremost members in con
gress on the program, Tennessee
would be calculated to attract con
siderable attention at the celebra
tion of the big metropolitan politic

State Superintendent Mynders
has employed Prof. Abernathy, of
Selmer, Tenn., and Miss Mary My
ers, of Nashville, to aid in the work
of the Teachers' Annual Institute,
which will convene in the Court
House, June 20th.
Prof. Abernathy has been with us
before and is well and favorably
known by our teachers. Miss My
ers is one of the best primary in
structors in the State, and will de
vote her entire time to primary
The coming of these instructors
insures the Institute to be one of
the most profitable ever held in the
county, and all teachers are request
ed to be present the entire time.
D. E. Bishop,
General Crop Conditions.
Refreshing rains fell during the
week, which, with moderatley high
temperature, greatly revived vege
taion and gave a very gratifying
impetus to the growth of all crops.
Corn is now improving and grow
ing rapidly, and much of it has re
ceived the second cultivation. Cot
ton is greatly improved in condi
tion and is taking on new life since
the rains; the crop looks-well where
it has been worked out; in some
localities bad stands are reported.
There is something doing in tele
phone circles. The Memphis Tel
ephone Company, successor to the
Progress Company, is extending its
lines and putting in new poles.
Upon Lafayette Street in Bolivar,
the lines of this company and of the
Cumberland Telephone Company
both run, the former going beneath
the latter. The new poles the
Memphis Company propose to erect
will overreached the poles of the
Cumberland Company. In the mean
time the Cumberland people have
fastened strips or scantlings
about eight feet long to the top of
their poles. This caused the Board
of Aldermen to hold a called meet
ing last week, when the following
ordinance was passed;
Be it ordained'by the Board of
Mayor and Aldermen of the town of
Bolivar, Tennessee, That the Mem
phis Telephone Company is hereby
given the right and privilege to
erect poles forty- feet high and
place wires upon same 60 as' not to
iaterfere with the poles or wires of
the Cumberland Telephone Compa
ny now erected and in operation on
and along the north side of Lafay
ette Street leading from the county
jail ia said town west; and the
Cumberland Telephone Company is
hereby ordered by said Board of
Mayor and Aldermen of said town
to remove and take down scantling
or strips that are fastened to the
telephone poles on the north side
of said street in said town
Be it further ordained, That the
Cumbeland Telephone poles and
wires remain the same height as at
Bolivar, Tenn., June.l, 1904.
At the regular meeting of the
Board Tuesday night, the Mayor
vetoed the above ordinance, giving
his reasons as follows:
To the Board of Aldermen of the
town of Bolivar, Tennessee.
Gentlemen I herewith return to
you Ordinance No. 28, known as
the telephone ordinance, without
my approval. My reasons for dis
approval are as follows:
1st. This ordinance, as 1 under
stand it, seeks to settle a controver
sy between the Memphis Telephone
Company and the Cumberland lele
phone Company with reference to
their lines on a certain street in
Bolivar, which I think the Board
of Mayor and Aldermen have not
the power to do. Both of these
companies, by an agreement with
the town, have the same rights and
privileges within the corporate lira
its, and if one of them is iufrinsinu
upon the rights of the other, its
remedy would be in the courts and
not in the Board of Mayor and Al
2nd. Because there is no penalty
for violation of the ordinance.
3rd. Because, whatever
and privileges these companies have
by agreement or contract with the
town are vested rights, and I don't
thiak the Board of Mayor and Al
dermen can divest them, or either
of them, of these rights without
their consent, and I fear that an at
tempt to do so would evolve the
town in litigation that would cost
i neretore, by virtue or the au
thority vested in me by law as May
or of the town of Bolivar, I
vetoed said ordinance tor the reas
ons above given, believing as I do
that the general welfare of the town
requires this action on my part.
G. A. Black, Mayor.
This June V, 1904.
The ordinance was then passed
over the veto of the Mayor, five
out of the seven members of the
Board voting for its passage.

My attention was called yester

favored the Hepburn bill. In reply
I have to say I do favor it, but as I
now recall it has never bceu before
the Senate for a vote upon it,
"I do not think it necessary to
publicly announce my position upon
the Hepburn bill any more than ou
many other bills pending in Con
gress about which there is a differ-
ence of opinion. My position on
the Hepburn bill has not only been
stated and referred to frequently in
the papers, but was made especially
conspicuous, causing my loss oi
hundreds of votes in the recent pri-
marv elections in Davidson and
Shelby counties. In my opinion,

me to lose more votes in the recent
