will have to deal with a great ninny
important measures winch the poo-
pie of Tennessee are interested in

to see a bill introduced that will
limit the duration of the work of
the board of equalization to not
more than ten days in the larger
counties and in small counties like
Benton to not more than five days,
so that instead of the board being
in session thirty days-as is allow-

The work of the board in this
county could be accomplished in
two days with the proper manage-

called to this matter, and that he

of tho board to a reasonable length
of time, and the assembly petition-

Ur to date the Republicans in
Congress have failed to secure a

It is about time that the Repul)

that they have no business endeav-

the South when they have so much

It is said that the western farm-
ers whose lands are mortgaged do
not, . as a rule, look upon their ruort
gages as indicating their poverty,
but rather as showing their good
credit, and the hope they have of
soon owning their land free from
debt.. This is a stunner, when it is

among the farmers to a great ex-
tent in nearly every State in the
Northwest. But opinions differ.
The trade and business world is
beginning to breathe more freely
there can bo no doubt The crisis
in the depression which has existed
in Eastern trade circles seems to
have passed, and tho outlook, upon
the whole, is said to be quite cheer
ing. . The prospects are that the
coming year will witness an activ
ity in the South such as has never
been known before, and the estab-
lished industries and capitalists
console themselves with the assnr-

The attempt to disarm the In-
dians at Wounded Knee Creek, in
Nebraska, last Monday resulted in
a serious conflict between the Big
Foot hostiles and Seventh Cavalry,
in which about seventy-six cavalry
troopers were killed and wounded,

of about three hundred and fifty
warriors, women, and children were
almost totally wiped out. Possibly

impossible to avoid a protracted
Indian war, and should it come,
it will in all probability be a war of

be almost obliterated.

AX IMI'OUTAXT OFFICE.
Oue of the duties of the county
court, which meets at this place
Monday, will be the selection of a
county superintendent of public in
structiou. This is an important
position of responsibility, and while
we are not informed as to the can
didacy of any one and have no de
sire to advance the name of any one
for the office, we wish to speak of
the advisability of selecting a man,
or woman a good school teacher
preferred who will prove compe
tent in every way. The duties de
volving upon the superintendent is
much greater than oue would at
first suppose, and the first import
ant object to be considered in this
connection should bo tho selection
of some one who combines a quick
apprehension, united with intelli
gence, and an ambition to excel and
profcgsional nml it takcg a

county will prompt him to the faith
ful performance of tho duties that
will devolve upon him, and who
will devote his time to the personal
supervision of each school, and bo
pains-taking and eager for the bet-
torment and advancement of the
schools. In this way, and this way
only, can the public school system
prove satisfactory and accomplish
the greatest amount of good.
' We do not ask the consideration
of any name for the office of super
intendent of public instruction, as
tho honorable county court is ca
pable of selecting a man fitted for
the duties and responsibilities of
the office and one who has earned
