sault with attempt to commit mur
der on a man by the name of John
Spence at Ledbetter's Landing on
Tennessee River. It is alleged

To the fellow who sits quietly
by and looks on, it seems that it is
about lime the citizens of Camden

A year has passed since this use
less warfare began, and instead of
the town becoming more reconcil
ed it seems this partisan rule or
ruin spirit has grown stronger..
If any one has gained anything
in a material way or otherwise by
this war of words it is more than
we have been able to see. True,
the gossipper has had his inning,
but can the airing of these things
be conducive to the betterment
and upbuilding of the town and
school? AVe answer, no.
On the other hand, what has al
ready beeu said and done has hurt
the school and town in a way that
it takes no prophet to tell the story.
This is not all. The town has been
injured spiritually, socially, aud
It seems these differences had
their beginning back when the
corporation question was so much
agitated. Thatquestiou being set
tled by the legislature should have
removed these difference, but such
was not the case.
The conquered, it seems, were
not disposed to fall in line with
his neighbor and help upbuild
what had been torn down in this
A striking peculiarity connected
with this fight was the insincerity
of many' of the participants. A
good many said they were "getting
even!" Others said they had all
the tax to pay. Some said it would
ruin trade, and others even said it
woulddepreciatethe value of prop
erty one-half, and still others had
the"griuding of! their political ax"
in view, and finally the fight was
carried out into county politics
the last place where this question
should have been introduced.
Our loss in the school has been
Big Sandy and Holladay's gain.
In'saying -this we are not offering
criticisms to our sister towns, but
merely to show that through our
folly they have, in a measure, been
