Governor Benton McMillin 1ms
issued the following letter, which
will be of interest to our readers:
F.very citizen of the .State is interested
in its fiscal tiil'iiirs, ami naturally welcomes
information eoiioerninn our indebtedness
and the progress wo are making in paying
it. 1 therefore write you on this subject
The bonded indebtedness of the Slate,
including debts to charitable aid educa
tional institutions, in iflo.GoS.KOO. This
is exclusive 01 8ome out ootids now in
controversy with the government.
When I was inaugurated January 10,
8l!. the State owed $850,000 floating in
debtedness, money borrowed to pay inter
est, which bore per cent, interest, in
addition to our large bonded indebted
ness. I recommended to the legislature
the creation of a sinking fund to begin
payment ami cancellation of our bonds,
nlnl the legislature passed such an act,
which I approved January 27, ISO!), and
which was to commence January 1, 1900.
-A 1 1 lhe floating debt and interest there
on has been paid, amounting to $.SS.',7()7,-
8.3. .Non-interest debts to certain counties
were paid in accordance with an act passed
in 18U0, amounting to $19,r2S.-l'J. Cer
tificates and old issue of the Hank of Ten
nessee, amounting to .$7,121) have been
paid, making a total Hooting debt paid of
We have purchased under the sinking
fund act $005, 100 and have in the sinking
fund !'74,000 cash, which will be used in
the purchase of bonds within ten days.
It will thus be seen that we have redeem
ed to date, since January, 1000, $005,100,
which added to the .$910,405.34 of floating
indebtedness paid, makesa strand total of
.$1,815,505 31; add to this $71,000 sinking
fund, which will buy more than $74,000
bonds, we have a total debt reduction in
three years and three months of more
than one million eight hundred and nine
ty thousand five hundred dollars.
The reduction has been at the rate of
more than $11,000 per week. The inter
est, charged against the State by reason
of these payments is more than $1,000 per
week less than it was when I assumed the
duties of the high office with which you
have honored me. I have striven to make
this a business administration straight
Ihrough, and make it a debt-paying ad'
Much credit is due to the economic leg'
islatures which haye co-operated with me
in this work, and to the State officials and
county officials, through whom thistnon'
ey has been collected and paid promptly
All of this has been accomplished without
borrowing a dollar, and the State has on
hand and in sight, enough money to pay
the interest and expenses of this year,
Yours very truly,

The Flatwoods correspondent has his
"dates mixed " In modern parlance he
has a ' lew iv'U model wheels in ins
head," Since this discussion began he
has advanced the idea that quail should
not be killed, but should bo allowed to
live and play havoc with the insects.
This species of the bird kingdom is one
of the very few that is palatable, Mo
other bird is so universally used on our
tables. "Quail on toast" appear on the
bills of fare of all our leading hotels, and
everybody on earth except the Flatwoods
man takes one in his n.
Your ideas are constipated, my friend.
The good Lord knew what he was doing
when he handed the human race a quail
on toast, and our preacher has brains
enough in his noggin to appreciate it, too.
"What is to be will be don t go with
him, either. Instead of sitting at his ta
ble, calmly folding his hands and waiting
for something in the shape of birds, he
takes his "Betsey Ann" and roams the
fields afar and the birds had butter hunt
The correspondent from Flatwoods is
alone in his argument, poor fellow, and
we pitty him. Our advice to him is this :
Let those birds which are tit for nothing
else destroy the insects, and feast on the
"old reliable" every chance you get. If
you can't hit 'em, send for the preacher.
