One. of thfe ablest and brainiest of
Tennessee s statesmen (and a man
profoundly versed in law) holds that
all the grants covering the waters of
Reelfoot Lake are void, absolutely
so that there is no way in the courts
to reach them, there being no ad
verse or posession of any kina on
which to predicate suit to try title,
it Is the duty of the state to enact
either that the p.rants are void or
valid so as to establish the law that
will set at rest that question. He
will introduce and push in the next
General Assembly a bill declaring
these grants void.

It is said that a recount of the
ballots cast in the recent primary in
Fulton county may be demanded uf
tbe new county committee, on the
grounds that the regulations govern
ing said primary were not adhered
As published in the Courier, the
primary regulations stated specifical
ly that in order to be qualified to
vote In the primary one must have
first voted for the Democratic presi
dential electors in the regular elec
tion. The returns show 310 more
votes cast for sheriff than were cast
for Bryan, which Is construed to be
prima facia evidence of a deviation
from the regulations.
This is causing a number of Demo
crats to ask where the 310 votes
came from, and aver a recount will
be asked of the new committee,
Ray Lamphere, charged with the
