Taylor, "regular" democratic nominee for governor. It was the first regular appointment of the day, though the senator had al ready made two brief speeches, one at WIRELESS MESSAGE TELLS STORY OF WELLHAN'S THRILLING RESCUE Heavy Westward Gale Carried 'America' Clear Off Her Course Every Effort Centered On Keeping Airship Afloat Tried for Azores and Then Bermuda Gasoline Thrown Overboard "Trent" Sighted, Lifeboat Launched Thrilling Experiences mistaken, for Jeff is against him and was recently indicted in Davidson ounty for carrying a pistol.

Lyle. The facts about that ap pointment are known to many in this eity. M Uncle Billy " Rhea was post master during the first term of Presi dent Cleveland and was succeeded by a republican when Harrison was elect- d. When Cleveland was rejected in 1892 Mr. Rhea became an applicant for reappointment. R. C. Hunter and Cy II. Lyle were also applicants. Mr. Rhea had the endorsement of Sen. W. B. Bats amd believed that suf ficient Mr. Hunter had the endorse ment of that old w ar horse, Sen.Isham G. Harris and believed he could win. Sen. Harris was really controlling the patronage in East Tennetsee through Maj. I). A. Carpenter and there is scarcely a doubt that he woul dhave been sllowed to make this appoint nient over Gen. Bate, especially in view of the fact President Cleveland had stated that former postmasters would not be re-appointed or given preference over other applicants. Cy 11. Lyle had the endorsement of Gov. Taylor, then a private citizen, w hose endorsement was not considered par tieularlv vuluable by the others. Gov. Taylor asked the President and Post master-General Bissel to let him name the postmaster in his own town, re gardless of the endorsement of the senators, iind he was permitted to do so. In other words, Gov. Taylor had the man oiniointed who relied upon his endorsement and the other two appli cunts who had more valuable endorse ments, according to their belief, lost.

New York, Oct. 19.-Walter Wellman and the members of his ill-fated trans-Atlantic expe dition in the dirigible balloon "America" who were rescued from impending death at sea 360 miles east of Cape Hatteras yesterday, believe that a voy age in an airship across the At lantic may yet be accomplished. The Wellman party are aboard the steamship Trent, whose timely arrival proved the sal vation of the adventurers. A heavy fog held back the Trent this morning and at 9 o'clock she was about twenty miles east of Sandy Hook. The Trent will dock this afternoon. While the object of Wellmans venturesome trip was not ac complished he succeeded in cre ating a new world's record for dirigibles, being seventy-two hours in the air and covering, according to Wellman, a thou sand miles over rough seas. Shortly after 9 o'clock the Trent came to anchor below Sandy Hook because of heavy fog. A wireless message was re ceived this morning through the United Wireless system from Operator Ginsburg, of the steamer Trent, giving further details of the America's crew at sea. The message was as fol lows: Steamer Trent, 6 a. m., 55 miles southeast of Sandy Hook: The crew of the America aft er resting all night, are feeling none the worse for their thrill ing experience. From what I can gather in conversation with Irwin, (the wireless operator of the America), the most excit ing moment of the three days was after the launching of the America's lifeboat. The Trent bore down, full speedfupon the small boat. "Irwin declares for the mo ment it looked as if she would cut her in half. The Trent ap peared to him the size of the Singer building and he was pre pared to jump overboard and swim clear of the propeller. Fortunately this was unneces sary. "The Trent passed the life boat, dangerously rocking her. A rope was thrown and caught ky the men, who, however, could not hold on owing to rough seas. The Trent cleared the lifeboat, which dropped half mile eastern. As the big steamer turned in her wake to return to the lifeboat it was seen the airship's men had got ten out two oars ana .were struggling to keep her head up to the se'a. "We were were now along side the craft. Again lines were thrown, but were dragged from the airship men's hands. In hanging to the rope Mr. "Wei man's little finger was badly cut. Again the maneuver was repeated, this time with sue cess. Loud, Simon and Irwin were straining on two oars.The ship was brought close enough to make fast the 'America' boat. Two ropes were thrown from the steamer Trent. "The crew of the America climbed up the rope Iadcer and each was chasfred as he was helped over the rail. bo ended one ot tne most thrilling and daring feats in the annals of the sea. (Signed) "Louis Ginsburg, "Wireless Operator, "Steamer Trent.' Wellman says that after work ing well to sea on Sunday the dirigible was caught in a thirty mile northwest blow which car ris J the America clear off her course.

The at tempt of the Wellman airship America to cross the Atlantic ocean came to a thrilling and disastrous close today when the British Mail SLeamer Trent picked up Wellmen and his crew from the wreck of the air ship, 375 miles off the North Carolina coast. The news of rescue came in two wireless messages from Captain Down of the Trent, one reporting to the company's agents here and another informing the New York Times the result of the expedition in which it had tak en a leading part. Both wire less messages practically told the same story. Captain Down reported that at 5 o'clock this morning he first sighted the airship in dis tress. Signals of distress and calls for help were given. For three hours the Trent maneuv ered in the heavy seaway to get alongside of Wellman and his wrecked companions. The entire party were finally taken aboard and the cat also, which was taken along as the mascot, shared in the rescue. Captain Down reports all fhe members of the crew well. The Ameri ca was abandoned where the rescue occurred in Latitude 35.43, Longitude 68.18. This brings to a climax one of the most remarkable flights by an airship ever undertaken. That the climax was not ac companied by a tragedy is con sidered a matter of exceptional fortune. i 1 1 I Wireless Messtge Sent to the New York Times Vew York, Oct. 18.

Assur ances poured into the democratic head quarters today and tonight giving the information that the greatest changes in the state to the regular ticket have been made this week in parts of the Ninth congressional district, particu larly in Obion county and those coun ties adjoining Obion, a section that has been regarded with the most un easiness by the leaders of the untraded democracy. From all points of Obion the news read that old confederate soldiers and independents generally were going over to the democratic fold.

Chairman W. O. Vertrees tonight Chattanooga, Oct. 19. With enthu siasm of the genuine sort, the reception accorded to Senator Taylor by the un traded democracy of Chattanooga and Hamilton county last night was one long to be remembered by both Senator Taylor and his party and the democra cy of Hamilton county. It should be stated that not only did the democracy of Hamilton participate, in the big cel ebration, but there were delegations from every border county. There were representatives from far away Jiledsoe county and there were large crowds from Marion and Rhea counties. Senator Taylor said in the outset of his speech that it looked to him like everybody in the state of Tennessee was present. The doors of the auditorium were thrown open at 7 o'clock and by 7."0 every seat in the massive structure was occupied. The audience was a noted one and one in entire accord with the speakers. When the reception com. mittee made its appearance the build ing was packed with a veritable sea of humanity. The aisles were crowded and people were standing up in all parts of the building. With every seat in the auditorium filled and all the aisles crowded to the utmost capacity, w ith the spirit of un traded democracy permeating tho vast throng, the greatest crowd of people that ever greeted a political candidate in Chattanooga rose as one person as Gov. Hob Taylor entered, to cheer for the "apjstle i f peace" come to lead the demofrntio iosts into the safe fold of a reunited li.ni'.cracy. vwhen you allow any of your H H stock or poultry to CHICHESTER SPILLS BRAND DIAMOND A.k t "rant. for CHI-CHH9-TER' DIAMOND BRAND PILLS in Rkd Gold metallic boxes, sealed with Ribbon.
