Bill to Amend Columbia's Charter, Uet
The whiskey men of Columbia
made a move on the political
checkerboard last week, and Im
mediately got jumped.
They had an idea ; and whenever
thev tret hold of such a thing, It so
startles them that thev proceed at
once to give it away.
This one and this time, they gave
It to the legislature. Their Idea was
to amend the charter of Columbia.
They thought it would be a very
smart thing to go back to the old
ward svstem. and make a play ror a
majority by wards. And from their
Dointof view It would. And they
also thought that it would be a wise
thine to have the legislature curtail
the tenure of office of the Recorder,
City Marshall and City Attorney.
And again from their point of view
it would, beincrs as how these offices
at present are not filled by men who
wink the other eye at Sunday
saloons, etc. So their bright ideas
they took to the legislature, to be
made into laws.
Representative Courtney, by re
quest, introduced their bill, and had
it referred to the Committee on
Municipal affairs. Then Mr. Court
ney, with that level-headed pru
dence characteristic of the man,
came here last Monday to see about
it, and in turn, invited an parties
interested to come to Nashville last
Wednesday and present their claims
to the Committee. Quite a large
crowd accepted the Invitation.
Thnan who went to favor the bill
were Messrs. Jake Rarker. Rufe
Pevton. Andy Sellers and Mose
Lazarus, with Mr. W. J. Webster as
thoir nttnrnev to nresent their side
nf thtt ena to thfi Committee.
On thfi other side, present and
protesting against the passage of the
niPftHiirft. were the following: G. 1.
Hughes, L. P. Padgett, A. S. James,
v. i.v v.rwin. W. H. Fleming. F. P.
Lander, Jno. W. hnerson, U.
(Mm rah. W. H. Wilson, J. A
Smiser. W. R. Gordon. T. N. Jones,
J. P. Rrownlow. A. R. Rains, J. R
Aehtnn. W. R. Dobbins. W. A. Rut-
tie, S. P. Payne, Sims Latta, J. 1
Street. James Roberts.
The opposing factions met early at
the Capitol, and the work of lobby
ing began. The erstwhile cham
pions of brilliant ideas soon fagged.
The number and character of their
opponents rather surprised and
stunned them. They flew to their
friend and always ready champion,
the ex-honorable Maney Schwab,
but Maney felt his bearings and
luit- . ......
In tne meantime mose opposing
the measure were quietly but per
sistently at work. They were lor-
tunate In having among their num
ber, men who knew other men from
all parts of the State, and in this way
thev were enabled to get personal
introductions to and conferences
with nearly all the members of the
Pom mit tee. and to give them a
nrnner 11 nderstaudlng of the real
nnrnnsft and animus of the bill.
Vortunatelv too. the Committee of
the House was an exceptionally
good one, and wa9 composed in the
main of men who appreciate good
government, good morals and
sobriety. So, long before the Com
mittee met, those gentlemen who
went to Nashville to defeat the bill,
knew that their purpose was accom
plished. But when the House adjourned
for dinner, about 12:30 o'clock, the
Committee was called together and
both sides announced present and
readv. Mr. Webster opened the
argument, for the bill, claiming that
it main rurnose. and the only , one
this he tli.iught wm an altogetnei
r-itniMmij fmitiii't). proper and
right, that each ward should
its own chosen representative.
Mr. G. T. Hughes answered
combating the ward system
io,iuiiitr nluo that that was
real purpose of the bill. He stated
plainly and frankly that it was his
opinion and the unanimous opinion
of those for whom he spoke, that the
bill e initiated from the saloons and
f.-roH hv tho whiskey in-
teres s, and that its purpose was to
give the whiskey sellers a chance to
get control of the city government.
Continuing, liesaiu ne npue mi
homes and the good men and
women of Columbia, and that the
best people of this city were opposed
to the change. .
Mr. Webster in his reminder took
exceptions to Mr. Hughes' state
ment that his side had "all the best
people" on it. He Insisted that his
petitions had the names of some as
good as any on the other, and that
th linnnr seller was as much en
titled to protection for his rights, as
the banker or the merchant, and
should not be persecuted or op-
Mr. Hughes replied urieny nm
did not say that no good man
name was on the other list, out tout
he meant to say, and would repeai
and Insist that they were too few to
be allowed to control the mauy who
opposed them. ,
rnis cioseu tne iuk"1uc"vi
motion, the Committee went Into-
executive session. AU parties re
tired and left the Committee to
themselves. Mr. uourtuey, wi
member from Maury, then addressed ,
the Committee, opposing the bill,. .
and moved that it be rejected. I he.
motion was put and carried, by a
vote of six to three.
Senator Dabbs was present, by In
vitation, and when he saw the,
formidable opposition to. the bill,,
and hoard the reasons therefor, and
learned the wishes of the Represen
tative from Maury and the action of
the House Committee, withdrew the
bill from the Senate and summarily
ended the fight.
And thus ended the lirst cnapiei.
