Chancellor Aberiiatlij Kenuered His
Decree Favors the Building and Loan
Association on Every Point An
Chancellor Abernathy re-convened
court last Wednesday morning,
and rendered his decision In regard
to the cases of Cowley and Moore
against the Maury County Building
and Loan Association, argument in
which closed on Thursday of Lt
week. The decree favors the Asso
ciation in every point, and orders
that the bills filed by complainants
These caRes were begun In Septem
ber, 1897, and have attracted a great
deal of interest on account of the
importance attached to them and
the far caching results that would
have followed had they been sus
tained Cowley and Moore were borrowers
from the Association, and. upon fail
ure to pay their dues, their mort
gages were forclosed and their prop
erty offered for sale to satisfy the
mortgages. Hills were then filed in
Chancery, attacking the rightof the
Association to foreclose the mort
gage; claiming that the defendants,
Moore and Cowley, had already paid
buck the money they had borrowed,
with a legal rate of interest; and
charging that the Association had
overstepped the rights and privi
leges granted it by law, and that it
had become merely a banking Insti
tution and was charging usurious
rates of interest for the money it
loaned. The two cases are alike, ex
cept that in the Cowley case a nlea
of coverture on the partof Mrs. Mary
J. Cowley, wife of J. L. Cowley, was
The decree rendered by Chancel
lor Abernathy in the Cowlev ease
states, first, that Trustee H. O. Ful
ton, Secretary and Treasurer of the
Association, was fully empowered
and authorized to execute the mort
gage in the evMit of a default upon
the part of the mortgagers
Another clause reads as follows:
"The court is further of the opin
ioii that inasmuch as J. L. Cowley
joined with his wife in the execu
tion of the note, as well is In thn first
mortgage executed by himself and
wife, whereby he bound himself and
agreed to become liable for the 'aith
ful perforrnarica of the payments to
be made as get forth in the terms of
said first mortgage, that the plea of
coverture of Mrs. Mary J. Cu,wley,
Interposed by the personal repre
sentative and heirs at law and hus
band of said Mrs. Cowley, cannot
avail to defeat the execution of the
Thedecree further h'-i-pj that what
are designated nv "i-feuu.-ints as
"funding loans' were not illegal,
being open to nil members of the
Association alike, and that J. L
Cowley and wife were not Injured
thereby, and that such action did
not enter into or become a part of
their contracts with the Association ;
that the monev loaned to Cowley
and wlf was bid oil by them in a
regular loan meeting, In open com
petition, to the highest bidder, and
that prior to the sale of their prop
erty under aid mortgages they were
in default tor a longer period in the
payments agreed to be made ny
them under said mortgages than
stipulated in said mortgages, and
have wholly failed and refused to
comply with the terms of said mort
gages as to said payments, and that
the Trustee sold the property under
the terms of said mortgages, and in
strict compliance therewith, at
which sale the Association became
the purchaser of said property and
received a deed from the Trustee
The decree further reads: "The
court doth therefore order, adjudge
and decree that the Maury County
Building and Loan Association
thereby became vested with a good
and indefeasible title to said prop
erty, . . . and was entitled to the
possession thereof, leiral notice hav
ing been duly given sal 1 Copley and
wife to vacate said premises, as pro
vitled in said mortgage, and that
complainant association is entitled
to possession of snid property, to
getfier with rents from the 20th day
of July, 1807, at the rate of $(! per
month, and that the Association is
entitled to recover of Cowley said
rents, together with the further sum
of $94.75, with interest from July 6,
1897, in all $102.31, bal nice due upon
the obligations in said mortgages,
after giving credit for the net pro
ceeds of the sale of the property,
making in all $195 33, together with
the costs of this suit, for which exe
cution may issue against said Cow
An appeal to the 8 lpreme Court
was taken by Cowley and Moore.

In "The Cosmopolitan" for May,
1897, President D. C. Oilman, in an
article on modern education, uses
these startling words:
"Notwithstanding the long experience

Big Majority for Benton
AND ALL THE OTHER NOMINEES.
McMillin' Majority Nearly l.llOO The
Republicans Were Sleeping no Sound
That Very Few of Them Got Awake.
Old Maury did herself proud last
Tuesday, and comes to the front with
handsome majorities for Benton Mc
Millin and the other Democratic
nominees. Here, as over the entire
State, a great amount of indifference
among the voters existed, and a light
vote was polled. While some apa
thy existed in the Democratic ranks,
it seemed that the Republicans had
thrown up the sponge altogether and
didn't care a continental how the
election went. But few white Re
publicans voted, and still fewer ne
groes. In the Ninth district less than
twenty negroes went to the polls, and
in many districts in the county Sam
bo's ebony face could not be seen at
For the handsome majorities roll
ed up for Democracy, the County
Executive Committee and other par
ty leaders, who have been working
with an untiring energy for the past
several weeks, a great portion of the
thanks are due.
McMillin'ri plurality over Fowler
Is 1.893 the largest plurality given a
Governor In this county in years. In
1894 Turney received 731 more votes
than Evans, and in 1898 Taylor re
ceived 1,218 more votes thanTilman.
The vote of Col. Cox, Democratic
nominee for Congress, fell below that
of McMillin several hundred, and
the vote of Cunningham, indepen
dent candidate for Congress, exceeds
that of Fowler by 200.
From the meagre returns received
from the other counties iu this Con
gressional district, it is impossible to
give a correct estimate of Col. Cox's
plurality In the entire district. How
ever, he is elected by a good, safe

The day was an Ideal one, and no

Peace and quiet characterized the

told that an election was going on.

a two-year trip through Europe is

to what extent in our history this
has been true.
"Appleton s Cyclopaedia of Amer
ican Biography" contains, in round
figures, fifteen thousand names. Of
that number a few over five thous
and are the names of college gradu
ates. and ten thousand approximate
ly are ine names oi tnosp wno are
not college graduates. It is extreme
ly dimJUll to estim ite with any- de-;
gree of accuracy the number of col
lege graduites who have lived in
our country since the beginning of
our history. Suppose we adopt the
usual estimate of one hundred and
fifty thousand. Five thousand of
these have done such work as to de
serve recognition; that, is, one man
in every thirty sent out by the col
leges and universities has reached
some distinction. This proportion
seems pitifully small ; and our case
seems already lost. But let us put
over against these college graduates
those who are not graduates.
As the male population of the
United States grows up and passes
through the age of college education,
a little more than 1 per cent, actual
ly graduates from coUegssjyuiu.ai,-.
versitles, for ease in calculation,
let us call it 1 per cent. Then, if we
count the graduates In our country
since the beginning of our history at
one hundred and fifty thousand, the
non-graduate males of graduate age
number fifteen millions. Of this
vast multitude only ten thousand
have don such work as merits rec
ognition iu an encyclopne.Ha of bio
graphy. Only one iu every fifteen
hundred of the non graduates has
attained distinction ; while one in
every thirty of the college graduates
has been equally fortunate. That is
to say, the boy who taken time to
prepare himself for his work by sub
mitting himself to the discipline
furnished by the college or univer
sity, Increase his chances of success
