We desire to call tbe atten tion of the proper authorities to the total disregard of this ordinance hy ,a certaia claas ef citizens, who go about the streets at a late hour of night, and sometimes even at an early hour, pop ping their piatola ia almost any direc tion. Espe.-laily is this the case on Sat urday nights. The shooting not only disturbs the pe?ce and quiet of good citizens, but it endangers life. A ' ran dom shot has often dona deadly work. It is absolutely necessary that wesheuld have stricter police regulations or tho laws we have more rigidly enforced.

At no time in the history cf Mors ribtovrn, Las tho whole community felt a moro profound sorrow, than on tho morning of October 2d, whea it beuame known that Hen. .Robert McFarland had died daring the previous night. -Not a week befuro bis death, hopes had been enter tained that he might yet recover. But for four or fi? days before his death, oar people had realized that his end was near; and. the hourly inquiry on the streets had been in reference to his condition. Jndge McFarland's history and enviable reputation belong to all the people of the State. But in a stronger sense to the people of Hamblen county, lie was born and raised among us, and passed most of his life in our midst. Ilis social virtues tho crowning beauty of his character, have been seen and felt by us, as by no others. Ho was born at Springvale, about 5 miles southeast of Jlorristown, on April 13, 1&32, and was therefore in his 53d. year when he died. Ilis grand father, IJebert McFarland, an officer in the revolutionary war and his father Col. Robert McFarland, an officer in the war of 1812, both lived and died at that plaee. Judgo McFarland, without wealth to aid him, in early life mainly through his own personal oxertions acquired a fair education, studied law and in 1S5G was admitted to the bar in Greeneville. He was married in 1859 to Miss Jennie Baker ol Greeneville. At the commencement of the late war ho resided at Dandridge, Tenn., and from that place entered the service of the Confederate States as Major of the 31st Tenn. Infantry, in which capacity he Berved through the entire war. Vie have not space and time now to follow him through his subse quent career nor is it our purpose. For many years Judgo McFarland has been our neighbor. His inner life has been an open book in this community, and we only voice the feelings of every citizen of Morris town, when wo say that he lived among us a life of untarnished puri ty, his christian and social virtues being conspicuous in his every day life. He is gone to his reward, mourned as few are mourned by this entire community. VXITISQ CP THE MOB Rt STOWS BAB.

If you oppose the railroad com mission scheme, scratch the names of Savage, Gordon and Turley, that appear on the Democratic,, ticket. Their defeat will indicate to the legislature that tbe people want no more nonsense of this kind, and even their election by a decreased majority, wM be a strong hint in that direction. . , - If the Republican candidates for commissioners' are elected the" legis lature will repeal the law creating the commission not simply because they are republicans, but because sneh a result will be an indication that the repeal of the law is demand ed. : The fight is not between Demo crats and Republicans, as to which party will elect its candidates to office, but to see if tho people will endorse the commission scheme, aud express their willingness that tbe State shall pension Messrs. Savage & Co., at ?C,000 per anum. Even if there was any party prin ciple involved in this matter, we would oppose the election of John II. Savage. No person in the State could be more objectionable for the office of railroad commissioner than he is. He has long been noted for hi? hostile attitude to railroads and he now construes the duties of his office "to make war on railroads till they are brought to terras." The office of railroad commissioner is a judicial one in certain aspects and it is meant that the commissioner should meditate between the roads and their patrons. In this viow of the case it is easy to see that Savage is not fit for the position. But tho party principles have nothing to do with this commission question and cut no figure , in tbe election of commissioners. The dog law question, or the no-fence ques tion could not bo made party measures and all effort to draw the party lines on the railroad comrais. eion question is equally as furtile. Remember what we said at the outset of this article. If yeu don't favor a railroad commission, don't vote for the Democratic candidates for commissioners. Their defeat will call for the laws repeal in such unmistakable tones that the legis lature will not fail to hear it. Cast your vote for every Demo cratie nominee for political office, from Presidential ejectors to re presentatives in the legislature Be sure you vote for Gov. Bate. Wo want to 6ee his majority in creased because tho Republicans have boasted that they will carry Tennessee. But assert your inde pendence when it comes to railroad commissioners and "scratch 'em." Gov. Cleveland has evidently no intention of swinging around the circle or" taking the stump in his canvass for the, Presidency of the the United States. He will leave that edifying work to Mr. Blaine The Governor can daily be found at his desk in the Executive chamber. The Blaine "new departure" is look ed upon by the Governor's friends as a last desperate effort on tho part of the "Mulligan candidate" to turn the tide. of disaster . which has al ready set in against him. in nearly every State of the Union. The ef fect of such a canvass on the1' part ef the Republicans, it isfurthercon tended, will ba very injurious in jurious instead of beneficial. The respectable, thinking people of the country will not be particularly pleased at such a political spectacle. If Mr. Blaine can support a large family in luxury and save $2,000, 000 on a Congressman's salary of only $5,000 per yearf four years in the White House, with a salary of $50,000 would, make him richer than Yandcrbilt. Mr. Blaine is simply a financial curiosity that's all there is about it. AN ANSWER WANTED. , Can any one bring us a case ol Kid ney or Liver Complaint tbat Eclectrie Bitters will not Fpeedily cure?
