It is now accepted that there will
be no contest at the State conven
tion over the nominations for sec
retary of State, treasurer and comp
troller, but that John W. Morton,
Reau Folk and Frank Dibrell will
be awarded the honors without pro
test from auy quarter. There was
never much prospect for Mr. Folk
to have an opponent, though the
question of entering the race was
considered by at least one man.
After looking over the field, how
ever, he realized what was plain to
every observant man, that the peo
ple of Tennessee were for Folk.
Mr. Dibrell's appointment to fill
out a brief, unexpired term gave
him such advantage that all com
petitors retired from the field.
Captain Morton's position was
not so safe or certain, for all along
a period of several months pros
pective candidates were bobiug up,

ing to have a contest for the office,

peared leaving Captain Morton in
undisturbed control of the situa
tion. "No man seems anxious to tackle
our worthy secretary of State, the
Hon. John W. Morton," says the
Athens Post. "General Harvey
Hannah, Hon. W. B. Romine and
Hon. W. B. Whitson of McMinn
ville have been talked of, but all
have now stated that they would
not be candidates. Captain Mor
ton has made the State a model
officer, and we are glad he will be
Joining in the endorsement, the
Chattanooga Press gives a bit of
interesting war history as follows:
"The editor of this paper feels
very much the same way. He re
members very distinctly that forty
two years ago on the 15th day of
this month he was one of a number
of other boys in blue who stood
before Captain Morton's battery at
Fort Donelson trying his best to
silence its angry, whirring missiles
which weremowing down our ranks
on the union left. Captain Mor
ton's battery suffered heavily in
that engagement, and 6ince we
found it impossible to get an ef
fective bead on him then, our opin
ion of him has undergone a radi
cal change. Captain Morton was
not only a very brave and efficient
Confederate soldier, but he has
been a model citizen, and since the
batteries and sharp shooting of
his political adversaries since the
war have not succeeded in silenc
ing him, we are willing to let his
re-election be unanimous."

nothing and now owns three hun

land as the sun shines ph. ,
"Buy ten acres as a nucleus, and!
add to it as you can, always paying
cash for what you buy," he con

buy, and take the right care of
them, and they will last as long"
as you do. -
