President J. Epps Brown Ad
dresses Letter to All
' Employes.
An organization of telephone work
ers is being formed by the Southern
Bell and Cumberland Telephone
company, and a letter signed by
President J. Epps Brown has been
sent out to all the employes. The
organisation will be 'modeled after
the association of Western Union
The letter sets forth that the
workers should, have an opportunity
whereby such of them as desire to
do so "may avail themselves of any
and all advantages which there may
be in collective bargaining or con
sideration of working conditions." It
Is also pointed out that "an organi
zation which aspires to aid the em
ployes must, to be successful, be co
operative! and not antagonistic in
Us nature."
The Labor World, official organ of
the Chattanooga Trades and Labor
Council, charges that the letter of
President Brown "is the outcome of
recent formation ef a bona fide or
ganisation among the telephone
workers and their efforts to Improve
their conditions ,by the only sure
way." -
That portion of President Brown's
letter ' which deals directly with the
organization the' company plans to
form follows:
"I favor the suggestion that an as
sociation of telephone employes be
formed, with which the company can
enter into relations whereby such of the
employes as desire voluntarily to Join
the association may avail themselves
of any and all advantages which there
may be in collective bargaining or con
sideration of working conditions, pro
vided that It shall not Interfere with
the liberty of any employe whd may
prefer to continue to deal Individually.
"It is my wish that each employe will
decide for himself whether or not he
or she desires to Join such an associa
tion, and It must be understood that
nothing, herein stated is Intended to
deny to any employe the right to Join
any organization of his or her choice.
The company, however,, does not in
tend to deal with outside parties In
regard to matters affecting Its em
ployes. "This organization, If formed, will be
organized and officered exclusively by
employes who will, through their rep
resentatives duly selected by them, form
its own constitution and by-laws. Such
an organization or association could be
so formed, if the employes so desired,
that while it is an association of all
employes, groups of employes In any
particular department may select their
own representatives to deal with the
company In matters affecting ' their
particular interests.
"If the constructive ability and lead
ership among the employes Is as high
as I think it to be, there should be
evolved an association of employes
which will operate with a broad sense
of economic . conditions and social
righteousness, and which will Insure a
high esprit de corps of co-operation be
tween all the employes and the com
pany In service of the public, and so
insure to the employes lasting com
fort and prosperity. -
"Should such an associations em
ployes be formed, I pledge for the man
agement its full co-operation in con
nection with all matters with which th
association, through its officers or
through any committee, may deal.
1 Sincerely yours,
.. "President.' . .

other officers who assisted in arrest

a few nights ago, the sheriff said the
checks were deposited in the bank

soon as the checks passed through
clearance. "It's all fixed up, any
way," he stated.
"I have nothing to hide or to deny,"
continued the sheriff.
Campaign Committee of Central Labor
Body His Advisor.
That the lead of Emil Wassman and
E. D. Herron in the rare for city com
missioners ,could be overcome onlv after
a desperate fight conducted against
them is one of the principal reasons
given by Neil J. Crowley, labor's can
didate, for his withdrawal from the
race. In a stnteraent to the members
of organized labor of Chattanooga, In
which he explains his withdrawal. Mr.
Crowley frankly expresses hlmseif as
feeling that Wassman and Herron
should be elected. Ho explains that
they are qualified to render good serv
ice. He expresses his heartfelt thanks
to those who so loyally supported him.
The Labor World makes the follow
ing editorial comment with respect to
the withdrawal of Mr. Crowley:
"This action was taken by Mr. Crow
ley only after mature deliberation on
the part not only of the candidate him
self, but of the campaign committee
named by the central body, who, after
consultation with the executive board,
unanimously concluded to advise the
step be ta)ten.
"Viewing the situation from all an
gles, It was realized that to elect la-
bor s candidate would e Imoosalhle
without a strenuous and bitter cam
paign, creating discord which, would
not be to the pest Interest of the cltv
as a whole. Agreement was unanimous
that organized labor should not stand
responsible for such a condition before
the people of the city.
"Organised labor Is. Indebted to manv
loyal friends outsldd the ranks who
stood by our candidate, and acknowl
edgment of this obligation Is freely
"The campaign was conducted In an
earnest effort to convince the people of
Chattanooga that labor was entitled to
representation on the commission.
That a majority of the voters failed In
the primary to see the Justice of our
claims was due to matters of which a
discussion at this time would be of no
''We went Into this campaign with
clean hands; we leave it the same
. At a meeting held at the city hall
last night in the interest of Candidate
Wassman and Herron, Crowley again
voiced the sentiments expressed in the
Labor World.

New Fair Catalogue Will Be
s Issued Within Few
From $22,000 to $23,000 worth of
prizes will be offered at the 1919
district fair to be held this year in
Chattanooga, from Sept. 29 to Oct. 4,
at Warner park. This is an increase
of from $10,000 to. $12,000.
The fair catalogue will be out
within the next few weeks, and
many new and Interesting features
are being added to the program for
this year. Owing to. the war condi
tions last year the exhibits and other
attractions had to be restricted to a
certain extent, and for this reason
the 1919 fair will be much larger
than the one In 1918.
Improvements will be started Im
mediately on the eighteen lots north
of Warner park that were purchased
some time ago by the city, and this
additional space will be ready for
use when the fair opens in Septem
ber. This space is located north of
the park, running up to the East
Chattanooga car line, and taking In
the vaoant space east of the walk
leading to the back entrance of the
park. The live stock department will
be located in this new addition and
will be enlarged.
Another department that will be
Increased this year is the rabbit
show. It has been estimated -.'at
there are about 200 people raising
rabbits in Chattanooga, and this will
insure a large exhibit. A shed EOx
100 feet, with accommodations for
approximately 1,500 rabbits, will be
erected adjacent to the poultry show
building.' ,

Old Auditorium Site on East
Ninth Not Seriously
"The advocates of different sites
for the location ot the new audito
rium overlook a number of impor
tant needs. Much stress Is being laid
upon the fact that such and such a
place has ample parking places for
automobiles," declared a well-known
Chattanoogan Saturday morning In
discussing a number of the sites
which have been mentioned by the
auditorium commission, "The prole
tariat needs no parking place for
limousines and If I understand the
object of an auditorium," he said, "it
Is to Improve the 'condition of my
kind of people. . ,
"The site of the old auditorium, by
acquiring one or two pieces of prop
erty the total cost of which would
not approach any of those offered,
would furnish a most excellent loca
tion. Every street car operating In
the city is within one or two blocks
of it and this Is as close as the
owner of an automobile can park his
car to any of the Bites offered, if he
is not among the very earliest ar
rivals, Use what we have in real
estate, spend lens for additions and
put the difference in the building,"
he declared In conclusion.
The old auditorium site has never
been seriously considered by the au
ditorium commission, so far as could
be learned. It is located on East
Ninth street between Georgia avenue
and A street. The present site Is
126x175 feet. The property on either
side could easily be purchased. On
the east side Is a lot -with a front
age ot fifty feet, while on the other
side is the Tom Wilcox property with
a forty.-foot frontage. At the back
of the place is a twelve-foot alley,
which could be closed and used, mak
ing the lot available 187 faet In
depth. On the far side of the alley
Is the T., A. & G. railway track and it
is doubtful If the line could be ex
tended farther, giving the desired
depth of 200 feet.
Some people have expressed doubt
of the necessity for such a large lot.
A building 126x200 feet would have
a floor space of approximately 26,000
square feet. Allowing for a ' stage
25x100 feet and figuring three square
feet to the person, about 6,000 persons,
could be seated on the ground floor
alone, it la claimed.
City Hall Site.
It was also suggested Saturday
morning that the vacant lot owned
by the city directly north of the city
hall and adjoining the property
would make an Ideal location for the
memorial building. The lot is 115x188
feet. Tenth street could be closed
and the adjoining lot could be pur
chased for a comparatively small
sum. It Is argued thnt the vacant lot
next to the city hall will be used as
a site for an annex to the building,
but It has been suggested that the
basement of the auditorium might be
utilised as additional offices for the
city government.
New Orleans Star Completely Swamps
Jacob In Final Match.
New Orleans, June 28. At the end of
the first nine holes Nelson Whitney was
four up on Jaeoby and playing the best
golf of his career. Jacoby showed a
tendency to hook his drives, which re-
Christ gave the same law to all people of the world, enjoining
upon all the same steps of obedience and bestowing; the same
blessings upon all the obedient alike. In apostolic times every
one who accepted Jesus as Lord became precisely what all the
obedient became, and nobody "Joined" anything. Born again,
they were the children of God. The church was God's family,
which, like the human family, was entered Jy birth. Hence, all
Christians were members of the church, and the process by
which they became Christians was the Identical process by
which they became church members. The church, called "My
church (Matt. 16:18), "the church of the First Bora" (Heb.
12:23), was the spiritual body of Christ (Col. 1:24; Eph. i:22, 23),
to which God "added the saved" (Acts 2:47), "set them In the
body" (I Cor. 12:18).
All Christians must be one In Christ "I will give them one
heart and one way" (Jer. 32:31); "Serve the Lord with one con
sent" (Zeph. 3:9); "That they all might be one In us" (John
17:21); "With one mind and one mouth glorify God" (Rom.'
lS:6); "All speak the same things" (I Cor. 1:10); by "All speak
ing as the oracles of God" (I Peter 4:11); "Holding fast the form
of sound words" (II Tim. 1:13); "The words of our Lord Jesus"
(I Tim. 6:13); "Sound speech which cannot be condemned" (Tit.
All Christians are on because at one with God. They are
Joined together upon precisely the same conditions upon which
they are united with God. They can Impose no conditions upon
each other save those which Jehovah Imposes upon all alike
(Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13). Nothing Is to be made a bond ot union
or a condition of fellowship among them that isn't essential to
constituting them Christians, making them one with God. Thus,
Christ's law makes division Impossible among those who will
follow Him faithfully, destroys all parties and makes sectarian
ism lnycusable. '
Denominationalism is at war with Christianity, All God's peo
ple compose and constitute God's house, household, family,
church, and that which divides and separates this great spiritual
body Is sinful because It cuts apart and destroys Its unity. Any
religious organization as a whole which doesn't Include all Chris
tians Is a sect, because its lines come between and separate those
Christians within from those without. The word "sect" is from .
the Latin verb signifying "to cut" The Greek word signifying
the same thing is generally. In our translation of the Bible, ren
dered "heresy." Thus, sectarianism destroys the unity for which
We would be known as Christians only, faithfully conform to the church pattern fur
nished by our Lord, and do nothing in His service save that which He commanded at our
MASONIC TEMPLE, corner Cherry and
Seventh streets.

New Organisation in Franklin
County Also Asks for
Appeal Court.
What Is declared to be the first or
ganisation ofv Its kind ever launched
In the United States, and which gives
promises of success and ot gradually
taking hold In the larger cities, was
formed June 24 by the Franklin county
poatofflce employes. Purpose of the
organisation, which is composed of ail
letter carriers, clerks and supervisory
officers with the exception of the post
masters in the first, second and third
class offices, Is to petition congress for
a higher and more elastic salary for
all poatofflce employes.
The following officers were elected
at Uia meeting: T. E. Plttlnger, Win
cheater, president; M. Ualnus, Estill
Springs, vice-president; J. O. Ledbet
tor, Winchester, vice-president; Kobln
Jones, Winchester, secretary and
treasurer. W. H. McKlnsluy, Nashville,
and A. W, Collins, Chattanooga, were
the out-of-town associates to help form
the new organisation.
A resolution waa adopted which was
sent to Judge Moon and Senator Mo
Kallar, which stated that in view of
the high cost of living brought about
within tH last three years, petitioning
for an Increuse of 26 per cent, begin
ning July 1 of this year, and that rural
route men be placed on the same foot
ing with mounted city letter carriers,
and that all Sunday holiday laws be
allowed to remain on the statute books.
It was also further asked that the
postofflce employes be allowed a civil
court of appeals whereby they could
get a just and fair hearing of any
grievance that might arise.
State Senator's Brother . In
formed T. R. Preston Looal
Aspirant Impossibility.
The threat of Senator Shields to pub
lish the list of Indorsers for J. Parks
Worley as marshal, Is denounced by
the Hamilton County Herald in Its issue
of today as an attempt by the latter
to shift the responsibility for recom
mending the East Tennessean to the
shoulders ot the Indorsers, which n
terms "a miserable and sickly decep
tion which will deceive no one."
"After the senator waa elected,"
states Chattanooga's weekly publication,
"he wrote a letter to Hon. L. Q. Walker
and others stating that the appointment
would go to the First Congressional
district. His brother, W. S. Shields,
of Knoxvllle, wrote T. R, Preston that
the appointment would go to one of
three men In the First Congressional
district, either Caldwell? White or Wor
ley. With this definite Information, of
course, Mr. Williams retired at once.
Marshall Thompson did not retire at
that time. Later, however, he was in
formed that under no circumstances
would he be reappointed. After the en
forced retirement of these gentlemen
it waa immediately announced that
neither Caldwell or White were appli
cants or had been. Through this skull
duggery and contemptible trickery
Worley was left alone In the race. Then
the senator. In order to fortify himself
sgalnst the protests he knew .would
come, sent his stool pigeons out to get
Ipdorsements for Worley. He sent his
man Friday, Charles McCabe. and
others to procure these Indorsements
and now he comes with the statement
Christ prayed because it fosters division and discord by forcing .
some of God'a children into one party and some into another.
To cut a body so as to separate Its parts la to mutilate and kill
it which is exactly what sectarianism does and necessarily
always must do. Is it to be wondered at then that Peter calls
these sects "damnable" (II Peter 2:1), and that Paul called the
parties springing up In the Corinthian, church "carnal" (I Cor.
1:11-13; 3:1-7), and denounced the sin of following men. (I Cor.
3:21; 4:6).'
He who la responsible for division among Christians, as he Is
who holds that which divides and makes for ftartyism, must an
swer to God upon a very grave charge. The law of Christ makes
no one a Christian and something else, does not produce differ
ent kinds of Christians. Everybody is given precisely the same
rule to walk by and is specifically warned against going beyond
what is written or by human ways and opinions. Thus, having
the same pattern to go by, Christians cannot be unlike, cannot
divide. This is why partylsm is sinful. It is at war with the
very genius and spirit of the Christian religion, the utter nega
tion of the aim ot the Master. Christianity and partylsm are as
unlike in their aims and tendencies as Christ and Belial, nor can
the partisan spirit and the Spirit of our Lord dwell in the same
heart. No man or body of men can follow them both. Thus,
religious partylsm and the sectarian divisions of today are not
only unnecessary they are utterly Indefensible, and in one day
this denominationalism can he done away with, and we all be one
in the Lord Jesus, and nothing but Christians, simply by every
body willingly and at once giving up everything outside the Bible,
doing only that which we are all plainly commanded.
If married to Christ (Rom. 7:4) whose nam should ws wear?
God always named His people, putting His name upon them
(Num. 6:27; Deut. 28:10; II. Chron. 7:14), cursed the Jews for
taking another name (Is. 65:15), and promised a "new name"
which He Himself should name (Is. 62:2), "an everlasting name"
(Is. 66:5). Thug He sent Paul to bear His name to the Gentiles
(Acts 9:15), which was given at Antioch (Acts 11:25,26). This
new name was Christian (Acts 26:28,29), which we are com.,
manded to "glorify God" in wearing (I Peter 4:16), and to suffer
for (Luke 6:22), a "worthy name by which they were called"
(James 2:7); and when some would also wear Paul's name they
were pointedly condemned. If It was carnal to wear the name of
so great and worthy a man as Paul, why is it not carnal to wear
any man's name or any name save that ot the Lord?
