BUCHANAN, of Rutherford County. FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1890. COMMITTEE MEETING. Camden, Tenn,, August 14, 1890. The Democratic Executive Com niittee of Benton County is hereby called to meet at tho court-house in Camden, on Monday, September 1, 1890, at 1 o'clock, p. m., for the purpose of transacting important business. Every member of the committee is earnestly requested to be m attendance. W. F. Harrison, Chairman. A. J. Saunders, . Secretary. The legislative campaign will soon be in full blast, and notwithstanding no announcements have been made other than thoso already entered, auditions to tho list are almost cer tain, and we confidently anticipate a lively race. It seems to be the disposition of the Democracy of the Twenty-sixth Senatorial District to allow Benton County her turn in naming the can didate for state senator, provided Benton will put forward the right kind of a man. , The average Republican farmer m Kansas is not cenerallv a hu uciorist, nor does he, in fact, have nuclt to make him smile. JNever thelessr lit? has a joke. It is this: uWhv can- not Senator Inqalls have his life insured? Because no man living can make out his pol icy." It is openly charged that the trus tee or Carroll County, Wno is a lie publican, made out poll tax receipts and crave them to colored voters in that county to exhibit at the polls, and after tho said receipts had served to allow the holders to vote they were destroyed no money t-rer havmer been paid tor them. THe' Carroll County Democrat talk v.sry straight to Mr. John Palmer, the trustee, ami places its columns at his disposal tor an, ex planation. "Why can't the Nashville Eeview, like a nice, respectable corpse, lie still in its coffin, instead of insist ing upon Pitting up and talking to its mourners every little while. We don't more than tret our handker chief to our eyes before the relics are shuffling around, apparently, very uneasy. Such proceedings on their part put a dampener on the festivities of the occasion. Out of regard for the feelings of its friends, the Review should lie right down and compose itself. Such conduct in a "truly first" weekly is not ex emplary. Autocrat Reed was not satis- floil with the hitrh-handed manner in which lie has controlled the House of Representatives sinco ho has been speaker of that august body, so he nttempted to force the Senate to adopt his methods o whipping party members into line to do his behests, but tho Seuate in Tlain terms invited him to at tend to his own business. There is to be no bulldozing allowed in the Senate; no debate will be cut sliort on important measures be fore that body ; but debate will be conducted in a dignified manner as becomes the Senate, and tho law givers of a great and growing nation. The Congressional Committee. Tho Democratic Executive Com mittee for this, the Eighth Con fessional District, is called to meet at McKcnzio next Monday. lhe principal business that will )o decided by this committee is he manner in which a Democratic candidate to represent this district in the Fifty-second Congress shall )0 made, whether by convention or oy primaries, liiis is a very im portant question that concerns ev ery voter in the district, and de serves tho careful consideration of the committee. "We do not know how tho committeemen stand on this question, but the primaries are recoimizod ns tho onlv satisfactory way in which the real sentiment of the majority can be arrived at. lhero aro three candidates in tho field : Hon. B. A. Enloe, the pres ent incumbent, of Jackson ; Col. R. P. Cole, of Pans ; and Capt. 11. W. Ayres, of this county, and we are of the opinion that all the candidates are committed to the idea of hold ing primaries. Colonel Cole in a county convention recently held at Pans declared that he did not want the nomination other than by a primary election. Our county man, Captaiii Ayres, expresses himself as decidedly in favor of a primary election. We have heard no ex pression from Congressman Enloe, but as he has heretofore been per tectly willing to submit his claims to a primary election, he doubtless would prefer a re-nomination in this manner. Benton County stands committed to the primary idea first, last, and all the time, and in deference to the well-known sentiment of the Democracy of this district in favor of pnmanes, the will of the party will doubtless prevail and the pn maries called for not latter than October 15, next. Equalize Taxation. mi n A m lhe tanners or lennessee are watching with more than ordinary interest to see what the political parties and conventions are going to offer the voters and tax-payers, Not only will the platforms upon which candidates run for office be scrutinized, but the personnel of the candidates themselves will be critically weighed, and wroe to the ones who are found wanting. None but good men need apply to the farmer tor his vote. There ought to be brought to the minds of every class of thoughtful citizens the importance of sending men to enact our laws who will not vote to cripple the industries of Tennessee or vote to tax them to death. Our resources are great. our people are industrious and f ru gal; but wo can not expect our re sources to be successfully devel oped by exorbitant taxation. Give us a greater number of thoughtfu and determined farmers, artisans! and business men in the halls o legislation, and we will have better laws and more bearable taxes. Al are interested in this particular farmers, mechanics, artisans, man ufacturers, and business men. Let us join in this effort to equalize National, btate, and county taxes let us reason, talk, work, and vote together for better government, and that, too, at less expense. Delays aro dangerous.
