age Hooper Casts Shadow on
the Memory of Comrades
Dyersburg, Tenn., Oct. 25.-"How
do you like your candidate, my wob
bling friends?" has been the frequent
question asked by Itobert L Taylor in
his speeches, five or six, made yesterday.
The democratic candidate for gover
nor has made it a point to give records
of Hooper and Enloe on every occa
sion. He unfolds the story of Hoop
er's action in voting against pensions
for confederates and in refusing to
agree not to prosecute bootleggers in
Newport, and to Enloe's war record
and his record as to democratic office
holder, who is now seeking to destroy
his party.
Six thousand people in- Laureldale
county heard Bob Taylor today.
He spoke at Herming, Gates, Ripley
and Halls, and at night he talked to
other thousands at Tiptonville, the
seat of Lake county.
Bands music, flowers, processions
and oratory were the order.
Between fields white with unpicked
cotton, the triumphal Taylor train
traveled. In these fields there was a
noticeable dearth of pickers. Passen
gers along the line in Tipton and i Lau
reldale counties related that the far
mers were fastened to their fields, and
could not be induced to leave, even to
hear their candidate f jrjgovernor.
' Nevertheless, there as no apparent
A short distance from the depot at

tor dropped a few new thoughts for
wanderer to ponder over.
Said he: "Every veteran who goes
oa the latform with Hooper and to
that extent encourage his candidacy
casta a shadow cn every principle he
ever fought for, and on Ih? memory cf
his comrades whose bones smoulder on
the battlefields of the south.
"I am for temperance and enforce
ment of laws. How is Hooper going
to enforce the law any better than I
can? The record of his party in the
way of enforcing the law when they
had the opportunity to do it is not so
promising. Enloe is as much republi
can today as is Hooper. I would rath
er vote for Hooper than Enloe, be
cause Enloe is a traitor to the party
that has fed him. "

Hon. J. T. Fugate Withdraws From Race
For the benefit of the political condi

for congresi and recommend to the thy of the honor. Yours tiuly,
voters of the district Col. C. H. Lyle, j JAMES T. FUGATE.
The New Nationalism, He Says,
Ha3 Its Source in Roosevelt's
Abiding Disrespect of Men
trict, I hereby withdraw frcm the race. rf Johnson Cily, whom i consider wor-l Johnson City, Ttnn., Oct. 26, 1910.
New York, Oct. A new turn was
given to the attack on Colonel Roose
velt anil his "Jsew Nationalism" by
Martin W. Littleton, democratic can
didate for congress in the Oyster Hay
district, in an address last night at Car
negie hall.
The new nationalism, he said, has
its source in the abiding disrespect Mr.
Roosevelt, has constantly shown to
ward "our form of republic," which
has caused him to show dissatisfaction
with the public men of this country as
well as its institutions.
Cittng criticisms passed upon former
presidents by Colonel Roosevelt, Mr.
Littleton added that apparently anoth
er executive and that one of Mr. Room
velt's own creation is probably await
ing his place in "this hall of infamy."
And this president who is awaiting
no doubt his place in this hall of fn
famy is one that Mr. Roosevelt him
self created, he said, "it is a pathetic
picture of broken friendship; it is a
sad commentary upon the stability of
political alliances to Rec a patient, a
just, earnest, plain and rugged judge,
who occupies the position of president,
almost crowded out of bis place and
excluded from the prerogatives of his
office by a man who continues to reign
wherever and with whomsoever he
may be.
"The vast region of Mr. Roosevelt's
political economy he has peopled with
a law-made race of men and women
who grope tlieii way about in the very
fog of diffuse and unrelated power. In
the wide range of his active mind ho
has never encountered a structure of
authority which he would not change;
a form of government which he would
not alter; a society -which he would
not transtorm. In the long reach of
his ample and enriched years he has
never met with a philosopher whom
hewould not advise; a teacher whom
he would not instruct; a soldier whom
he would not command; a king who
sceptre he would not wield; a book
which he would not re-write; a religion
which he would not recognize; a civili-
zaliorrwhich he would not reconstruct.
"In government bound by no law,
in life bound by no policy; in inter
course hound by no attachment; in de
bate bound by no record; in society
bound by no conventions; in conduct
bound by no tradition; in attack bound
by no strategy; in retreat bound by no
order; in ambition bound by no limit;
he towers today the embodiment of
conscious ana unconstrained power.
