The Bolivar Bulletin,
Hugh "Williams, ISpitor.
Progress Telephone No. 17.
Friday, August 23, 1901.
Undeu the head of "Plain
Democracy," the St. Louis
Rej)ublic,a democratic paper,
says: "In the presidential
campaign of 1901 the Dem
ocratic party, it now seems
likely, will be found organ
ized, neither reorganized nor
disorganized on a sound
Democratic basis, and fully
equipped for victory in the
cause of the people. The
repudiation of American prin
ciples so distinctly made
within the past three years by
the Republican party leaves
the Democratic party alone
representative of the princi
pies upon which the Ameri
can Government was estab
lished. Trustism, imperial
ism, a colonial policy model
ed almost identically upon
that of Great Britain, a con
fessed determination to put
into effect the Hamilton the
ory of a strongly centralized
.beueraL Government, a
denial of the rights of the
people in order that a
privileged caste may be made
richer as the people become
poorer, are the things for
which present-day Republi
canism stands. The menace
of these things must be re
moved by the removal of the
Republican party from
power. The Democratic na
tional organization needs on
ly to maintain a - Democratic
allegiance to the fundamental
truths of Democracy. These
truths demand the restricting
of the trust evil, the forbid
ding of the government of
aliens by force against the
consent of the governed,
faithful observance of the
American principle of 'equal
rights to all, special privi
leges to none,' and a national
government that shall not in
effect be a Federal Monarchy
on the Hamilton basis. The
demand for the suppression
of these evil tendencies now
so apparent in Republican
politics must be met for the
people's sake. The Demo
cratic party wjll take its
rightful place as the party of
the people. There never has
been a plainer duty before
American Democracy. There
has never been a greater
promise of Democratic victo
ry in behalf ol the common
people. All that is necessary
for victory is that the Demo
cratic party shall obey the
popular demand in nominees
and declaration of principle."
Concerning the guberna
torial race, the Somcrville Re
porter and Falcon says : "It
has been almost a quarter of
a century since a governor of
Tennessee hailed from this
division of the state. East
and Middle Tennessee have
furnished the great executive
head for that length of time.
It is certainly just and right
that the next governor should
come from West Tennessee.
We have only one candidate
from this division and it is
almost certain there will be
no other. He is a gentleman
who is the peer of any other
gentleman in the state. No
matter who may be presented
to the people, it is hardly
probable that he will in intel
ligence, legal knowledge, so
briety or any of the charac
teristics that go to make the
worthy gentleman, or that
are to be considered in selec
ting a governor, be the su
perior of Judge W. H. Swig-
gart, of Obion county.. A
man of marked and conceded
ability, of the strictest integ
rity, his eminent fitness for
the position is conceded and
we predict that he will be
Tennessee's next governor."
Among the most important
officials to be elected next
year by the voters of Ten
nessee are : Governor, five
members of the Supreme
Court, three members of the
Court of Chancery Appeals,
Chancellors, Circuit Judges,
one Railroad Commissioner,
members of Congress, mem
bers of the Legislature, Coun
ty Court Clerks, Trustees,
Registers, Sheriffs, Circuit
Court Clerks. For many of
the above mentioned posi
tions candidates have already
The Somerville Reporter
and Falcon, has the following
to sav concerniner a crentle-
man well known andpormlar
in Hardeman Countv: "While
we have not talked with
Judge Thomas J. Flippin in
regard to the matter, we are
reliably informed that he will
not be a candidate for reelec
tion. The Circuit having
been materially enlarged it
would require his entire time
and the duties would be more
arduous than he cares to as
same. Judge Flippin is
strong man before the peorjle
and had he again entered the
race he would no doubt have
been successful. By his vol
untary retirement, the judi
ciary of Tennessee will lose
one of its ablest members.
Probably there is no Judge
in the state whose decisions
have been less frequently re
versed by the Supreme
Court. We think he would
adorn a position on the Su-
r)reme Bench and would re
fleet credit upon himself and
the highest judicial tribuna
of the state as one of its
Forrest Statue.'
The monument committee of the
Forrest Monumental Association has
held a meeting, finally considered
the plans of the equestrian st3tue as
submitted by Charles Niehaus, the
sculptor, and has awarded the con
This action settles the matter for
once and for all and the committe
has relieved the association and the
public of any further doubt. Mr
Niehaus will leave to-night for New
York city, where the wcrk on the
statue will begin. It will require
three years to complete it and the
committee will have that time in
which to raise the balance of th
money required. The statue when
completed will cost 25,000.
Of this amount one quarter of i
is paid at the time the contract is
awarded, another fourth at the time
the clay model is completed, a third
at the time the bronze work begins,
and the last fourth when the statue
is mounted and unveiled. It will
be a wonderful work when com
pleted and the committee feels that
it has acted with considerable wis
dom in making the award as it has.
The contract was not made with
out considerable thought and study
on the part of the committee. The
working model was examined close,
ly. Men who knew Forrest best
were sought for advice. Old fol
lowers of the general journeyed to
the city to examine the working
model and to pass judgment upon
the face and features of the general,
and the resuit of these visits and
conferences was that the committee
believed that the right artist had
been secured and his model was the
proper one to accept. The contract
was therefore awarded and the agree
ment, including the terms of pay
ment, was drawn and signed.
Mr. Niehaus will begin work on
his return to New York and expects
to have the statue completed in the
time mentioned. After the action
of the committee the members ad
journed to the residence of Mrs.
Virginia Boyle, where an informal
reception was held. Commercial

C iral Crop Conditions.
iii ug lb week rain fell amost
daily throughout the state, some of
them heavy and damaging, causing
high waters and floods in low lands,
which wrought much injury to crops
and soil and fencing. On the ICtVi
high winds did great damage by
prostrating corn and other standing
crops. The rains, thoroughly satu
rating the soil, effectually broke the
long and disastrous drouth, and
gave late crops a wonderful revival
of growth and development, and at
the close of the week conditions are
much improved and prospects for a
good outcome are excellent. This
is especially true of the late plant
ings of corn, also cotton, tobacco,
peas, millet, sorghum, garden pro
ducts, potatoes, melons and mea
dows. Tobacco looks fine, except
in places where it has been over
flowed. Cotton stood the drouth
remarkably well, and the rains have
given it a new impetus of growth,
but it is still shedding its fruit ; al
together, however, the prospects are
more flattering. Peanuts are doing
well as a rule. Turnips are coming
np well, and sowing seed is still in
progress. Rye for winter and spring
pasture is being sown. Pastures are
improving rapidly. Early npland
corn was almost too far gone to be
benefited by the rains, and will be
cut for forage. There is much pea
and millet hay ready for cutting.
Fruit generally is inferior ; apples
rotting and dropping. Plowing for
fall seedings is progressing where
the condition of the soil is favora
ble for this work.
Gov. Taylor's New Lecture.
Gov. Taylor, in speaking of his
new lecture, said : "My new lecture
will be called 'The Old Plantation.'
laving been a farmer myself for the
past seventy-five years, I will be
thoroughly prepared to handle the
theme and will appear everv nigrht
with what little hiir I have left of
my political career, cnuck full of
hayseed. I will endeavor to divert
the 400, if they will come to hear
me, from the glare of the brilliant
chandelier and the weary whiil of
the dance on waxed floors to the
more beautiful colors and joys of
green pastures, where the milkmaid
goes with a song on her lips, a smile
on her rosy face, and a milk-pail on
her hips, to meet the lowing cows
as they come home in the evening
fragrant with the breath ot clover
"I will try to make them forget
the swallow-tailed coat and the de
collete gown while I tell them ot
the innocent bull calf who wiggles
his tail in speechless bliss as he im
bibes his evening meal, and has a
fight with the milkmaid in bis ef
forts to monopolize the milking bus
iness. I will prove to the ignorant
town people that bob-tail cows don't
give buttermilk. 1 will tell them a
thousand tales, more or less, and my
quartette will sing the old plantation
melodies until the crickets stop
chirping to listen, until the frog
gives an intermission in his evening
serenade, until the owl suspends her
too hoo and lends an attentive ear
until the nymphs draw near the
cautious tread, until every soul is
enraptured and each heart is carried
back in memory t the feudal gran
deur of ante-bellum days. I think
I can spin some- good yarns about
the old-time darkey, and tell some
stories of the cotton and the cane.
"I have been in love with the old
plantation. I think a dew drop in
the lily's spotless bosom, kissed by
the morning sun, is more beautiful
than the diamond, and a green hill
grander than a palace. I think ev
ery rose tells a love story, and tne
rippling music of a brook is sweeter
than the music of the band. There
is more melody to me in the rich,
deep-mouthed baying of a pack of
hounds as they open up on the trail
of a wary fox than in any sort of
music, unless it is that of a violin
There is more genuine pleasure to
follow the noble bird do on the
trail of the aristocratic 'bob-white'
and the thrill which goes through
your whole being when they rise in
a covey with a mighty roar, is grea
ter than which pervades the hollow
hearts of the wine-flushed revelers
around a banquet table."
