There are several things that
Hardeman County needs, chief
among which is good roads.
Hon. Joseph E. Jones, demo
cratic candidate for Elector for the

second term as Sheriff, and that he

has done in the past is a foregone
The resolute, rock-ribbed dem

Summed up in a few words, the
speeches of Mr. Littleton, republi
can candidate for liovernor, are
conditions in Tennessee under dem
conditions in lennessee unaer aem
ocratiorule. He attempts to leave
the impression that if he and his
nartv are . .laced in nower. all wiil
be well. Tennesseans have had
republicanism and desire no more of
it. The democratic party stands
for honest and economical govern-
ment and fulfills its pledges to the
iifionle. Its record is clean, clear
and creditable, and it has an able
auu eloquent uxiampiuu iu me pei-
son of Gov. Frazier.

THE JACKSON SPEAKING,
Six Thousand People Hear Frazier
and Littleton in-Madison's
From Memphis Morning News.
Jackson, Term., Sept. 5th.
Six thousand people as
sembled on the Court House
Square this afternoon to hear
the ioint debate between
Gov. James B. Frazier and
Hon. Jesse 3I. Littleton.
The speakers' platform was
erected on the east side of
the courthouse and seats,
consisting of planks resting
on empty beer kegs, were ar
ranged in front and on either
side sufficient to seat between
three and four thousand peo
ple. There were fully 1,500
or 2,000 people unable to se
cure seats, but nearly every
one remained throughout the
speaking, sharing the deep
interest the people are tak
ing in the joint debate.
The special train with state
officials and prominent dem
ocrats from Nashville, due to
arrive here at 10 o'clock, was
delayed by a freight wreck
and did not arrive until 12.30
o'clock. The train was run
as a local south of Hollow
Rock and a large number of
democrats and republicans
livinjr in that section took
advantage of this to come to
the great political gathering.
Quarters were provided
lor both Gov. Frazier and
Mr. Littleton at the South
ern Hotel, and here both
held regular levees during
the forenoon. Both were
shown distinguished consid
eration from democrats and

but on the contrary has im-

One OI the noticeable
features of the governor's

ner with which he handled

were on high plane. They
discussed the issues of the
day with dispassionate calm.

der, got the better of his op-
ponent iind turned the lauffh
on him by announcing that J.
Mr. Littleton was one of his
election commissioners whom i
the Republican candidate
had severely criticised in hi
speech. The crowd was
clearly with Gov. Frazier
and while at no time was
there any great amount of
enthusiasm shown, it was
evident after the debate that
the joint discussions are des
tined to create enthusiasm
through the State and that
the governor had made "ho
mistake in inviting Mr. Lit
tleton to join him.
By actual measurement the
crowd which heard Gov. Fra
zier occupied every inch ot
space in a lot 270 feet by 135
feet square. When the fact
is considered that there is
not an auditorium in the
State with this amount of
floor space, the immensity of
the audience can be realized.
In addition every window on
the east side of the court
house was packed to suffoca
tion. Mr. McConnico did
not speak, as he had to re
turn to Nashville.
Gov. Frazier in his speech defend
ed the Democratic record in Ten
nessee, showing how vastly diiTerent
it was from the corrupt and ruinous
action of the Republicans when iu
power, for which Mr. Littleton had
in previous speeches felt called upon
to apologize and ask that the veil
of charily be throw over it.
In taking up the Rutledge speech
of his opponent, the governor criti
cised Mr. Littleton for his attack
upon the University of Tennessee,
and provoked a laugh in recounting
tne tact mat tne omcers ot the in
stitution were all Republicans who
had denounced as untrue the state
mentn of Republican nominee.
Another solar plexus blow, de
livered by Gov. "Frazier, was ia re
ply to Mr. Littleton upon the farm
mg out of the btate s money to
banks that loaned it at a usurious
rate of interest.
He showed that one of the baoks
that received a portion of the fuud
was located at Winchester and that
his opponent was a director of the
banking concern and therefore
I beneficiary under the plan he saw
I ht to condemn.

on more conservative lines than his

Old Southern Romance.
Fort Gibson, I. T., Sept. 4.
-The remains of Talihinta
Rogers were transferred from
Wilson's Rock to the Nation
al Cemetery here to-day and
interred witli military hon
ors. The ceremony marked
the last chapter in the ro
mance of Gen. Sam Houston
and his Cherokee Indian
wife. The burial services
were in charge of the G. A.
R. The interment was made
in the officers' circle. Ad
dresses were delivered by ar
my men and many civilians.
The story of Gen. Houston
and his Indian bride is almost
a unique romance. He first
met Talihinta Rogers in
Tennessee, and fell in love
with her. In 1828 he was
selected Governor of Ten
nessee, but the Cherokee
maiden soon after went with
her tribe to the Indian Terri
tory. Thereupon Gen. Houston
resigned the governorship
and followed the girl to Fort
yi i -n m
vriDson. i?or several years
Gen. Houston lived with the
Indian woman, whom he had
taken for his bride. Leavii
her at the outbreak of the
Texas revolution, Gen. Hous
ton was elected the first pres
ident of the new republic at
the close of the war, and urg
ed his wife to come to Texas
and share his honors. She
refused, however, under the
plea that she was unfitted to
occupy such a position.
Hon. J. D. Richardson.
"Yes, I retire from Congress o
the 4th day of next March and wi!
have then completed twenty yearn
continuous service in the House,
said Representative James D
Richardson, of Tennessee, th
"father" of the Democratic hide of
the House of Representatives, as h
was taking the train for Bosto
yesterday- says the Washingto
"And," he continued, "I shall at
the coming session make another at
tempt to secure for the deservin
employees of the Govcrnmen
Printing Ofiiee a thirty days sick
leave with pay. The large army o
tioverument cierKs iu the various
departments, in addition to their
annual leave are accorded by law
sick leave not exceeding thirty day
iu any one year with pay, and it is
nothing more than fair that this
same privilege be extended so as to
include the employees of the Gov
eminent Printing Office."
Representative Richardson, much
to the regret of his constituents, re
tires voluntaii'y from Congress in
order that he may devote his entire
time and enerpy to his Masonic
work, he being the supreme head
of the Ancient and Accepted Order
of Scottish Rite of the Southern
jurisdiction of the United States.

It was through the influence of
Representative Richardson, as
Chairman of the Committee on
Printing in the Fiftieth Con
grtjss, iuai a resolution was
passed through the House and Sen
ate giving the employes of the print-
ng office fifteen days', leave of ab
sence with pay.
In Harrison's administration,
shortly after the appointment of
Gen. Frank W. Palmer, the present
ublic Printer, Mr. Richardson
again took up the matter, and with
the cordial support of Public Print
er Palmer, the annual leave of the
employes of the printing office was
increased to thirty, days with pay.
In the past two congresses resolu
tions to give a eick leave with pay
to the workers in the big office have
been introduced in the House and
Senate, but were never pushed.
