THE DEMOCRATIC EXECUTIVE COMMIT
TEE OK KENTON COUNTY IS IIEIIEIVY
CALLED TO MET AT TDK COURT HOUSE
IN CAMDEN, ON MONDAY, THE FITiSST
DAY OF SEPTEMUEU, EIGHTEEN HUN
DRED AND NINETY, AT ONE O'CLOCK P.
M., FOR THE PURPOSE OF TRANSACTING
IMPORTANT P.USINESS. EVERY MEMBER
OF THE COMMITTEE IS EARNESTLY RE
QUESTED TO BE IN ATTENDANCE.
W. F. HARRISON,
A. J. SAUNDERS, CHAUtMAN.
For the benefit of a few who are
of the belief that this paper is be
ing run for the fun of the thing,
wo want to say, right here, that
The Chronicle is being run for
revenue and Democracy, and not
for glory and individuals.
CouitT has to be held in a tent
and the tent and judge surrounded
by the State militia in Perry Coun
ty, Ky. The Nashville xVmerican
remarks that the county is " hope
lessly lawless,"' and from the late
election returns "hopelessly He
publican." It is clearly evident from the
returns of last week's elect iou that
the conservative element of the vot
ers of Tennessee believe that the
Democratic party is worthy to be
entrusted with the aifairs of county
government and local offices, and
Tennessee can send greetings to
Alabama and Kentucky.
Party organization is the cause
of the recent Democratic gains m
Benton County. A few years ago,
when the Democracy first put out
a ticket there was a big kick, and
only a portion of the ticket elected,

Taum Baker, jr., editor of the

Wc would as soon Taum would rep.

we know of, but from the recent
Democratic gains in that county,
we don't see why a good Democrat
. should not be elected.

t.-lligent southern Republicans out
of the party, and they naturally
join the Democrats, because it is

Hen. John P. Lashled.
Of well-known, tried and true
Democrats of Benton County, none
are more widely known than John
P. Lash lee, of the tenth civil dis
trict. Mr. Lasiilee is a candidate
subject to the will of his pnvty- to
represent this county in the lower
house of the next general assembly
of Tennessee, and we so announce
him in our announcement column.
He is a native of Benton County;
is a self-made man, moral and high-
m inded, and a true Democrat. Ho
has served his county as magistrate,
sheriff, and representative, and as
such served his constituency to the
best of his ability, and to their sat
isfaction, and if chosen to again rep
resent tho county will always look to
the best interests of tho people.
His record is before the people
"We commend his claims to a just
consideration of the Democracy of
The deliberations of the road
congress, which assembles at Nash
ville the 20th of this month, will
be watched with considerable in
terest, as it is one of the most im
portant public meetings ever held
in Tennessee. Every one is more
or less interested in good public
highways; nothing conduces more
to develop the resources of a coun
try, or stimulates business so much
or adds more to the prosperity find
lappincss of a people than good
lighways. The public highways
of Tennessee are proverbially bad,
and the object of the congress is
o thoroughly discuss tho subject
of public highways as the first step
to have tho subject brought prom
inently before the next general
assembly of Tennessee. The con
ress will most likely fornmlate n
bill to be submitted to the next
general assembly providing for
the maintenance of good highways
throughout the State. The county
court of Benton has done its duty
in appointing intelligent men to
represent tho county in the con
gress, and the public good requires
the delegates to attend the con
gress and use their best endeavor
in the interest of good public higl
ways in Tennessee.
TnE Ecpublican House of llep
rescntatives lias stultified itself in

that the Democrats had full con.
trol and possession of the ballot.
box in the Plummersville district
for the purpose of stuffing it in tho
interest of Pheckixkipge, and then
destroying the box in his inter,
est is simply preposterous. If the
Democrats had stuffed the box in
the interest of CreckiKIiidge they
ft-oald not have stultified them
selves by destroying tho ballots.
It is presumable the Republicans
stole the box themselves and de
stroyed the ballot to justify them
selves in the eyes of tho public in
crying fraud against the Democrats.
If the true facts in the matter are
ever found out, they will probably
show a dirty republican trick.
Caukoll County has always
been a hot-bed of Republicanism.
The county offices for more than a
fourth of a century have been tilled
by Republicans. Rut year after
year as the people become more1
enlightened politically, Republican
majorities have grown beautifully
less until in the late election for
the county offices, two Democrats
were elected to two of the most
important ollices sheriff' raid trus

soon Carroll County will be re

compliment to the ability of the
