Thu untimely dca-b of Former S-_a
tu Oarmack, of Tennessee, will be
deeply regretted by men of al! partita
throughout tbe couotiyand his less will be
felt by tbe people of tbe soutb of whom
he was alwajs a champion. He wrs
one of tbe brainiest men of bis time and
bis influence hss been felt ia both booses
of Congress iu which he had a brilliant
career. He wis a courageous mun of
decided convictions,fearlessly maintained
tbe aide which he believed to be right,
and his honett/ of purpose made him
many friend* even among men who dif?
fer lr >m him politically. His killing
wu both unfortunate and unjustified asl
will be seen bj the following from the
Nashville Teoneiseean, of which Ssnator
Oarmack Ml editor and which says edi*
torially today:
"At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon Ed?
ward Carnouck was waylaid and assassi?
nated by Co). Duncan B. Cooper and his
?on, Bobbin J. Cooper. At far as it now
aopfar1, the only reason lor this action
was tba pu'die*tion in the Tennesseeao
of two tr v a editorials, elsewhere re- j
productd iu this isnue. It will be seen
tba' there wa* nothing in these editorials
reflecting on the honor of Col. Cooper,
and nothing a' all about h's son. M\
Oarmack v.ai sb.'-' while in tbe act of
speaking to one of tbe most estimable
ladies of Nashville, aod be wss on tbe
way from his office to his private room.
His as* a'I & nu. who had been lying in
wait for h<m, drew near and opened Brr
on him at once, witbootgiving bim lime
to speak. A* be fell.mo'tilly wounded,
another shot w*s fired into the i a-k of
bis neck, pto JuciDg instant d?ath. Tons
died the brav-H'naa and the gentlest
man, the mot4 courageous, and the truest
man in Tennessee. Without passion,
without wild desire ior revenge, with
pity and cot malice in our hearts, we
j tin alike with tbe friends and the foes
of the dead maa in deploring the awful
tragedy and in demanding tbe prompt
and speedy execution of josti?. A tbe
men who have been guilty of this un?
provoked and bloody assassination."
Tho.(in tbe sjuth fought fer state
tight* and was defeated ou tbe field of
battle yet tint principle survives and is
strengthened every time the question
comes before tie supreme Court of the
country. That court in deciding the case
of B rea College against the state of
Kentucky favorably to the state yester?
day held t;ii,t tue Ma 'rs of Ihe union m*y
constitutionally legislate to prevent tbe
co-education of the white and black
race. The case was instituted to test tbe
validity of fie Rtatelswof 1904 prohibi
ing white and blat k children from attend?
ing tbe same schools. The higher state
court t .ck the position that the white
aod black rices are natarally antagonis?
tic and that the enforced serarstion of
the children of the two is in the line of
the pretcrvstion of the peace. Tbe
opinion of the Supreme Oourt -ran
handed down by Justice Brewer and af?
firmed the finding of both the Kentucky
Circuit Court and the Court of Appeals.
The decision will no doubt result io the
pacing of laws in some of the nt rib'rn
and w<atora sates providing for white
and colored schools as is done through?
out the soutb.
In tue echoes of tue election heida

satisfaction are found by the democracy

as governor of Indian*, dhallenberger
aa governor of Nebraska, Sjsffroth ai
governor of C Inala, Norris as gover?

went down to defeat was .Coi. Hepburn.

are Overstreet, ol Iodiara; M Creery,

Waahington, Nov. 10.
It is hamed today that the president's
dinner to labor leaders next Tneaday
will be followed by a statement of the
at itude of the administration on labor
questions in his forthcoming message to
Congress. By those in touch with him
it is said that it will advocate several
new measures which will tend to bring
in line those leaders who take Ihe more
conservative point of view in advocating
legislation before Congress. The a'ti
tude af tbe administration will be con?
structive legis ation aa opposed to the
radical demands of the leaders who fol?
low in the wake of Samuel Gompers.
The president is evidently of the idea
that tbe time is now ripe for the initia
tion of a movernen among tbe lsb< r
men themselves for more harmonious co?
operation in tbe rigoiatioo of labor condi?
tions. Tbe Central Labor Union of Wash?
ington today sent a telegram to Samuel
Gompers at Denver, congratulating him
on the ia.t that he was not iovited to
tbe White House labor conference and
dinner on November 17. lathe d s
cusaioo last night, before it wasdecidtd
to send tbe telegram, several of the dele?
gates denounced President Botssvelt in
bitter language for fa ling to include
President Gimp* ra io the list ot la oor
leaders invited to the dinner. The presi?
dent is openly flaunting the red rag in
the face of organized labor," f aid Sam
DeNedrey, secretary oftbe central body.
"His flagrant discouit sy to Mr. Gom?
pers will be condemned by the couutry
at Urge. It is an undignified act, and
it will serve to unite labor ng men io the
cause." The White House is not ready
to announce whether President-elect
Taft will be a gue*t at the dinner. It ii
understood, however, that Judge Taft
will be present. It ls believed that the
president is contemplating the ita ogara
tion of a definite labor programme far
beyond tbe measures a'ready being con?
sidered in Congress and one that it may
require many yra-s to rfa'izs.
The *>a/s aid mian* committee of
the House began it) tariff reivision bear?
ings today, by taking up the schedules
relating to chemii u 's aod cbieftly in tbe
manufacture of dyes. Cia rman Payne
and Bepresentativea Longworth, Gaines,
Needham, Hill, Dalzell), McCall. Bou

ed attentively while the chemists hurled
long techical tames at them, and de?
manded Kat various oils, acids ard
salt* be moved out of tbe free list and
put upon the ta*ifl vail.The plea of tbe
chemii al com* antes was mainly for the
plscing of a twenty five per ceot UriS
approxirxat 1/ upon variouscoai tar pro*
dncts used in the manufacture of dyes,
c'aiming that if this is done, United
States mano'actnrers will be able to com?

* '?? r_f ft. BjWtr, of Philadelpba, A

Arnold, who represents the Varnixb
Maters National Association made the
most interesting witnesses ol the session.
Mr. Bower aiv> cited an iocrease of doty
on chemicals, bot in an unguarded mo?
ment, a loni ted that hil business wa*
good and tbat he wac msking a good
p-f fr. "Why do you want an increase
of duty then?" asked Mr. Underwood.
"If the duty wa* irc.<a*ed we coold
make more goods," laid Bower. "Ia
other words, you would make mora
profit. Ia tl at not sc? " asked Mr. Un
deiwood. Mr. Bower admitted tbat this
wss correct, and retired. Plant advocated
a rednction of 10 per cent, of the pres?
ent 25 per cen*, advalcr-mduty on med?
icinal chemicals, and begun his argument
with an afaik on the tariff, character?
ing it as unjust, oppressive and unfair.
He said that tbe manufacturers of chem?
icals in this country ba*e formed a trutt
and sell their chemicals at exactly
the same price. If the duty is reduced,
be said the consumer would reap
the benefit, and the manufactu?
rer* would not make *o much profit.
Arnold proceeded to deliver a lee tare on
the selling of goods abroad. "I don't
take any stock io all this rot," he said,
'about selling good* at a loss abroad.
When Americans sell goods in foreign
c ut.tries tbey mike a pr fit or they
don't sell at all. I've sold sewing ma?
chines in **outh Africa for $19.50
a piece, which retailed for|05 in Ameri?
ca, and still I make a pr. lit on them.
It's ju-t the same with all other classes
ot goods."
