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.

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 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
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

There ought to be brought to the

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

oped by exorbitant taxation. Give
us a greater number of thoughtfu

and business men in the halls o

laws and more bearable taxes. Al
