"Johnson City will get the road, iu my opinion although the exact route has not been decided on. "It is difficult to say who is back of Mr. Carter.

General Patterson's Assailants. The papers in Tennessee most con Kpicnous in attacking Hon. M. R. Pat terson in his eanaidacy for the gover norship are the Chattanooga News, the Cookeville Press, Dyer County nerald aud Dick Green's Record. Remember ing that Gen. Patterson has declared a light to the finish against the State machine the antagonism to him from these sources is amusing. There's the Chattanooga News, for iustanee, out at ouce in a lampoon againHt Memphis and a Jleuiphis man for Governor and trying to stir up dis cord in Wett Tennessee because some distinguished gentlemen iu that sec tiou in the News' opinion are lucre en titled to the governorship thau-Oen.

Then Mr. Evans, remarking that he had not seen but was anxious to read Congressman Patterson's declaration of his platform, answered as to the question about whether he would be active in any way in the compaign: "I'm just a looker-on, but I'll be down there.

The Nashville Banner sees trouble ahead because of the proposed aban donment of the old-time party conven tions, and tho resort to primary elec tions for the selection of candidates. Nevertheless, there is a popular wave in that direction. Tho mass of the vot ers are unaccustomed to public speak ing. Even in their county conventions they do not make themselves heard. But they have views and they would like to have primaries in which they might give direct expressions of those views. Gradually nearly every state surrounding Tennessee has adopted the white primary for the giying of ex pression to democratic voters. -.True, the conditions are somewhat different in those states to what they are in Ten nessee.
