Senator Delivers Addresses to Big
Crowds, Who Gladly Stand in
Rain to Hear Democracy
Weaverly, Tenn., Oct. 21. Senator
Itsbert L. Taylor was greeted here to
day by practically the whole popula
tion of Humphreys county when he
arrived to tell the people in his good
old-fashioned way about the good old
fashioned democracy of good old-fashioned
Tennessee. A large crowd met
the Taylor special at the depot, and
right there began an ovation which
lasterd until the back platform of the
train was in the distance as the "Ap
ostle of Bunshine" sped on to the west
ward with his messnge of peace.
The rain was still falling in a heavy
drizzle as the senator was whirled
from the depot to the courthouse in an
automobile. The size of the audience
was limited only by the seating capac
ity of the courtroom, the largest hall
in the whole county. Over 750 peo
ple were inside and many were unable
to gain admittance.

ING. "A free and untramnieled judiciary"
was the plea with which the people of
Tennessee were led to indorse the
movement for the independent judicial
ticket at the August election. There
was no trade, nodicker, no compromise
with republicanism so far as the hon
est electorate was concerned. The peo
ple wanted the disassociation of the
Judiciary from partisan politics, and
they got their wish.
Now we have the spectacle of the attorney-general
of the state and reporter
to the supreme court, himself a loud
preaeher and an active worker for the
principle of the separation of the judi
ciary from politics, going on the stump,
stultifying not only his whole previous
record as a democrat, but his more re
cent utterance in the judicial campaign
and thus lending color, if not direct
proof, to the charge that a trade was
made with the republican leaders by
which votes were to be delivered for
Hooper, the republican, in exchange
for republican support of the independ
ent Judicial ticket. Mr. Cates t:i the

Harrison McNafeb, of Milligan, 16
Years Old, Attempts to Catch
Freight and Foot Slips Off
Yesterday afternoon while attempt
ing to board a freight between Milligan
and Johnson City, Harrison McNabb,
aged 16 years, met with a serious acci
dent that came near costing him his
life. In attempting to board a freight
train he missed his footing and fell un
der the cars, resulting in the loss of
one foot and serious injury to the oth
er. The freight train v.as moving so
fast that not one of the train crew
heard the young man's cries but luck

pened by a few minutes later and the
injured boy was placed aboard and as
fast time as is possible to make over
that road as made. On reaching the
city the young man was hastily remov
ed to the office of Dr. Matthews who
called in Doctors West and H. D.
Miller and removed one foot just alove
the ankle and the first two toes of the
other. Dr. Harry Miller stated to a
Comet reporter last night that the
young man was resting well and that
chances of recovery were very good.

men who make a practice of swinging
freight trains. It is getting to be a
common sight to see youngsters swing

that no more accident do not oocur.

Members of Order ' in His Home
County Declare He was Never
Friendly to "Gray Boys"
Newport, Tenn., Oct. 22. As show
ing that the" Confederate veterans of
Tennessee are not being misled by the
profession of love and brotherly feeling
expressed by Capt. Hooper, members
of the organization in Hooper's home
county Friday gave out a statement.
The language employed by these veter
ans, who know Capt. Hooper almost
from his childhood days, leaves no
doubt as to his standing among them.
The statement follows :
Newport, Tenn., Oct. 21, 1910.
To the Confederate Soldiers:
Much is being said throughout the
state concerning the reception that is
being given the republican nominee
for governor by our comrades. Living
in Capt. Hooper's own county, and
knowing him personally, we desire to
make this brief statement: Capt. Hoop
er has never been a friend to the Con
federate soldiers here, and has never
lost an opportunity to knife the demo
cratic party when that opportunity
presented itself.
We have known him ever since hej
first began to manipulate county poli
tics, and during this time he has never
shown that love and admiration for
those who wore the gray as he is now
doing over Tennessee.
We deeply regret to note that some
of our comerades are beins misled into
the belief that Capt. Hooper is sincere
in his expressions in our behalf. Noth
ing is further from the truth. His re
publicanism is of the rankest type, and
his love' for our thinned ranks should
be taken with a grain of salt
We desire to go on record by stating
that we are for (Senator Robert Love
Taylor for governor. Comrades, there
is only a handful of us remaining. Let
us not forsake the principles of the
democratic party by indorsing a repub
lican for governor of Tennessee.

Nashville, Oct. 21. It was a scene
that would have given an inspiration
to a wooden man that greeted Senator
Bob Taylor at the great rally of demo
crats on the public square, the throng
baing estimated at from 15,000 to 20,000
in numbers and 50,000 in enthusiasm.
It was easily the largest crowd that
has assembled. Although travel-stained
and worn with the fierce campaign
of the past few days, the senator was
in the happiest vein, but had to forego
giving his speech in full, as the outdoor
speaking in the crisp night air was
thought to be too menacing to inn the
risk of tieing up "Our Bob's" voice.
Long before the time of the speaking
there was. a good-sized crowd present,
and by 7 o'elock, an hour before the
opening, at least 4,000 had assembled
around the speaker's stand that had
been decorated with bunting and flag?.
Dense and more dense did the crowd
fall in and around the stand, and it was
with the greatest difficulty that the po
lice were enabled to make a pathway
for the leader and those who accompa
nied him from the Maxwell, headed by
the Nashville military band.
Those who rode with "Our Bob" were
ex-Gov. McMillin, ChairmanjW.O. Ver
trees, Joe W. Byrns, R. B. Ilickey, F.
P. Bond and others.
Congressman Byrns was selected to
present the democratic nominee, and he
performed the part with the greatest
satisfaction to his friends, who have
felt gratified over the early stand that
the Hermitage district congressman
took for the unterrified democracy of
The city of Nashville with its big
marching clubs from the various wards
did not by any means furnish all of the
vast throng that assembled to do honor
to the senator. Delegation after delega
tion of mounted men and women came
in from the country districts. The
Nashville people and those from the
districts made up a crowd of 12,000 be
fore even the speaker arrived, and with
those who came with the procession
and from the wards, the great number
already present was increased from 3,
000 to 5,000, many of the marching
clubs Joining in behind the carriages of
the Taylor party!-- As usual, there was
the greatest rivalry ' betwern the
"Bloody Ninth and" the First and
Second wards.
The first named perhaps carried off
the palm with its 500 members1, flags,
firecrackers and transparencies.
By the time Congressman Byrns had
concluded his speech the scene present
ed from the stand beggared description.
Everywhere, except where the bunches
of women stood, the men were massed
almost into a solid mold.
The crowd was crs'ing to "Our Bob"
"Just let us see you," and the appeal
was so strong that the beloved demo
cratic leader was forced to mount the
press tables, and when he opened up
his batteries there was almost a sacred
attention given him until his sallies
and witticisms caused wild enthusiasm
to break loose. Many hundreds of
Confederate soldiers were on hand.
Senator Taylor's reference to them and
Hooper's heartless treatment of them
vt as one of the greatest features of the
speech. One old ex-Confederate, JH.
Wiles, bad all day long carried through
j the streets a huge "Bob Taylor" banner
decorated with white carnations. This
same banner was conspicuously dis
played near the stand.
The speaker's thrusts at the Nash
ville Banner and its owner were most
pleasing to the vast audience.
The speaking last night, the climax
of the triumphant march of Senator
Taylor from the mountains of East Ten
nessee, can not but be an indication
that there will be great crowds from
now on in the lands of democracy in
Middle Tennessee.

Every year a large number of poor suffer

Resumes Whirlwind Campaign of
the State Today Stronger
and Stronger Everywhere
Nashville, Oct. 24. It was announc
ed from the democratic headquarters
last night that the Bob Taylor special
will be continued for perhaps the re
mainder of the campaign, beginning
Tuesday, the regular scheduled train
to be used in making the appointment
at Covington today.
The use of the special again will en
able the senator to fill many appoint
ments where the greatest demand has
been made for him.
The money to continue the special
was made up at Memphis by the
friends of Senator Taylor, they think
ing it advisable for him to make more
speeches in West Tennessee than his
original schedule provided for.
With a special there are many more
important points that can be reached
even if old appointments are met.

Dickson, Tenn., Oct. 22. "Dickson

is the cheerful message that greeted
the eyes of Senator Taylor, democratic
candidate for governor, when his train
pulled into the depot at Dickson, and
the senator, disembarking, was caught
up into the arms of his admiring
friends and conveyed two blocks away
to the court house, outside of which
the speaker's stand had been erected.
And as an evidence that this assur
ance of a large majority was justified
by popular sentiment, upwards of 2000
people, aged veterans, women, all
classes and conditions of people, stood
out in the drizzling -rain, and for an
hour and a half listened to the doctrines
of democracy declared by Robert L.

and the most enthusiastic reception of

o'clock today. The number of people
in the crowd at the beginning of the
speaking was variously estimated at
from 1,500 to 2,000.
Senator Taylor was loudly cheered
as he passed the court houfc on the
first lap of the parade and again when
he alighted from the automobile and
approached the speaker's stand. Many
persons crowded around him in an ef fort
