in this section of the State. He
ably and creditably represented us
in the general assembly two years
1 1 1 1 1 , i
ns nas always oeen a loyal, capital
letter Democrat, and best of all he
is morally a gentleman in every
sense the word implies. No man
iu the county takes more inlerest or
does more effective work for the
cause of Democracy, than Mr. Mor
ris, who is a valiant and persi-tent
champion of the principles he be
lieves to be right. He is wort hy of
any position to which his good
judgment would allow him to as
pire, and we hope tosee him elected
to the position of sergeant-at-nrms,
feeling sure that no man can better
fill the position than Mr. Morris, of
the good county of Benton.

personated by MissSissie McElyea,
and Misses Stella Collins ami Joe

Hon. J. E. Washington, member
of Congress from the Nashville dis
trict, on December (i introduced in
Congress "a bill to aid and encour
age the holdingof a Tennessee Cen
tennial Exposition at Nashville,
Tenn.,in the year 1806, and making
an appropriation therefor." The
bill carries with it an appropriation
of 82.)0,t)00. 5?50,000 of which is to
be expi'iided on a building, and the
remainder to be used in preparing
a Government exhibit. The bill
further recites that "the exhibit

administrative faculty of the Gov
ernment in time of peace, and its
resources as a war power, tending
to demonstrate the nature of our
institutions and the adaptation to
the wants of the people." Mr.
Washington says he will not let
the bill sleep, but with the aid of
the Tennessee delegation and the
Southern members in general, ho
hopes to get an early and favcrable

some of the good things that would
come with the centennial exposition,
writes as follows: "It will proba

onsother sections not lessthan 2o0,
000 people, and probably more,
many of whom, when they see and
learn of our many advantages of
soil and climate, will be induced to
purchase homes and settle, some in
one part (tf the State and some in
others. At a reasonable estimate
the average amount of money that
will be expended and left in the
State by these 2."0.000 people will
not be less than 812 each, or in the
aggregate &,000.000 and possibly
more which will be extensively dis
