Three State Normals Wanted.
A petition is being circulated by
the friends of education in Carrol
county, composed of school teach
er?, oilicers and citizen?, to be pre
sented to the next general assembly
of Tennessee, urging that body to
aid in bringing about such legisla
tion as will result in the establish
ment and maintenance of at least
three State normal schools, one for
each of the three grand divisions of
the State, the schools to be opened
for students not later than Septem-
Knoxville Wants the Adams Law.
Nearly one thousand people at
tended a meeting in Knoxville one
night last week to protest against
the action of the City Council of
that place in passing an ordinance
extending the time in which saloon
mav remain open from 11 to 12
o'clock at night. Resolutions re
questing the mayor to veto the ordi
nance were passed at the meeting.
A petition to the legislature re
questing the e.ten?ion of the Adams
law to Knoxville, and pledging
as would advocate such extension
was circulated during the meeting
and received over GOO signatures.
ber, lOOo. The promoters of the signers to support only such men
petition believe that the greatest
educational need of our State is n
large number of trained men and
women to be the teachers of our
youth and alo the leaders in the
community, thereby giving their in
fluence, culture and purpose to our
citizenship and thus preparing the
field for the development of educa
tional ideals, such, as more money,
longer terms, better teaching and
better facilities. It is expected that
thousands of signers to the petition
will be secured. Should these three
State normals be established, Hunt
ingdon is tipped as the lucky town
to secure the institution for West
Tennessee, although the rivalry for
the plum will be lively.
Put Poison In His Meat.
John Shelton and his son arc
dead at Lebanon, from eating meat
which is thought contained poison
and another one of his sons is in a
critical condition. Only two of the
family escaped and as they did not
eat .my of the meat there can be
r.o doubt as to that being the cause
of the deaths. Recently Shelton
was heard to remark in a fit of
despondency that hp was going to
kill his family and himself, as he
was tired of living and his financial
condition was such that he could no
longer support his family. This re
mark is tragically recalled by the
wholesale poisoning and a post mor
tem examination is in progress.
Shelton was a stone mason, aged
67, and did good work.
Hamilton County Sensation.
Sheriff Y. l Hays, of Hamil
ton county, and the Republican
nominee for re-election, created a
sensation last week in Chatanooga
by announcing that he would not
make the race. He charges that
Postmaster Sharp and his assistant,
Scott Roulston, who control the
county Republican executive com
mittee, were putting men in charge
of the campaign who were entirely
cut of sympathy with him. He
stated that he did not care to put
the large amount required of him
for campaign expenses into the
hands of these men and would leave
the field to his Democratic op
ponent. It is accepted as another
chapter in the old fight between the
partisans of Brown low and Evans,
The Same Old Result.
The Robertson county grand jury
has-failed to find sufficient evidence
of a combine to destroy competition
in buying leaf tobacco to return an
indictment under the anti-trust law
of Tennessee. C. C. Bell, agent
for the Imperial Tobacco Company
of England: William McMurray,
Esq.. agent for the Italian govern
ment, and others were summoned
before the grand jury. The investi
gation was in line with Congress
man Gaines' fight on the so-called
tobacco trust, and was the direct
result of the organization recently
of the Tobacco Growers' Associa

It is expected at the comptroller
office that Hugh Pettit, former coal
oil inspector at Memphis, will en
ter suit to recover fees paid into
the treasury under the act of 1899
placing the coal oil inspectors on
salary. Although his term of of
fice expired February 6, he did not
remit the fees collected during the
last quarter of his term until a few
days ago, when he sent in a check
for $22,229.50, but he expressly re
quired that the fact that the same

noted. Under the law he can, where
payment is made under protest, en

thirty days after the payment. He
has until Julv 13 to enter suit.
Sirs. Avery Ownsby, a bride of
two months, was accidentally shot
.and killed last week by Miss
Blanche Cole, aged 16, at the lat

Scarcely had she uttered the words
when the weapon was discharged,
the ball entering Mrs. Ownsby's
forehead and causing instant death.
Miss Cole was overcome by the
tragedy and lias not been able to
utter a word since.

Later developments in the killing
of Morris l)uke at Kingston
