You just vvRit until Wilson runs in
Maine.
Next thing you know the iudepend
enta will want the legislature abolish
ed because they can't create enough
con fusion to defeat Patterson for the
senate.
What's the use to worry? Tatter
son cannot be elected unless the peo
ple want him, and if a majority want
him, they ought to have him, and
the minority have no cause to eoni
plain.
There is still some talk of fusion and
the independents controlling the legis
lirtan bit tka rtgulari ostfiflM to
carry all the primaries, In Gibson
county last Saturday a regular senator
and two representatives were nomi
rated over independeuts by majorities
of about 750 with 3500 votes east, and
that too with the liquor plank and
Tatterson the main issues of the cam

FLOPS TO WILSON
JSew York, Sept. 8. The oiticers
and a delegation from the Murry Hill
republican club, which supported Taft
and Sherman four years ago, called up
on Mr. McAdoo, acting, chairman of
the democratic nationat committee, to
day and informed him that the club
had decided to support Wilson and
Marshall in this campaign.
L. L. Granner, as spokesman, said
the club had a membership of 570 and
had decided to support the democratic
candidates by a vote of 800 to 210. The
officers of the club are W. W. Arm
strong, president; V. 8. Cane, secretary
and George H. Deghay, treasurer.
DEMOCRAT FOR CON
GRESS IN FIRST DISTRICT
From the Knoqville Sentinel.
"Democrats of the first congressional
district should by all means run some
democrat for congress in that district
in the interst of the national ticket,
so that a full vote will be polled oh
the democratic side. Itepublcans have
two candidates ,and every republican
will be brought to the polls," said a
well known ipper East Tennassee
democrat who is here attending su
preme court.
"Who do you think would be a good
man to run?" asked a reporter for' The
Scntiael.
The gentlemen replied; "There are
100 in the first district, any one of
whom would make a good race and if
elected would make a good congress
man. We cannot tell what might
happen. If you wanted a candidate
from sevier county, there is John B.
itrabson,, better known as "Farmer"
Urabson, who is a sure enough farmer
and would make an able congressman.
Then there is W. O. Mims, of Cocke
county, who is an able speaker aad a
brilliant young lawyer. He could go
hunting for both bull moose and white
elephant. In Hawkins county, there
is S. L. iChestnut. In Hancock is
Robert Coleman. In Washington is
Cy H. Lyle, who is a brilliant writer
and a good talker. la Greene eoanty
there are a number of available" candi
dates, Hugh II. Gouchenour, who at
one time reduced the Urownlow ma
jority to 2,000 and also Oscar M. Dig
ger, Luke Trim, and a number of
others. In Carter county is Dayton
Hunter. In Unicoi is iL. H. Berry. In
Sullivau Judge C. J. St. John and
Judge Itobert Burrow and J. Harry
Swan, the boy orator, and others are
available. In fact the woods are full
of good men. In the past we have
been allowing the republicans to run
two candidates and the vote goes to
the republican ticket, many democrats
not takii g part. Democrats will make
a mistake if they don't put out some
good live wire for congrese in Sells'
district." . '
WALTER H. HENDERSON
A special to the Richmond Times
Dispatch from White Snlphur Springs,
W. Va., dated August 31 says:
The season opened with such a rush
at tne new "Old" White, it would
seem that as it draws to a close things
would quiet down a trifle, but to the
most casual observer there is no appar
ent cessation of entertainments. All
day long the guests at this resort rush
from one party to another, while every
nyrht numerous supper parties are held
in the cafe, the largest one of the week
being that given by Walter Houston
Henderson, of New York, in honor of
Miss Helen Stevens, of Richmond,
daughter of George W. Stevens, pres
ident of the Chesapeak and Ohio Rail
road. The large round table, about
which were seated thirty guests, was
banked with llowers. At the conclu
sion of the party the guests attended
the german held for the benefit of the
musicians, there being at the dance
about sixty couples. Those at the sup
per party were Miss Helen Stevens,
Richmond; Mrs. Julia Kellogg: Bradley
Washington; Mr. Ridgely, Baltimore,
Mrs. Monlton, Richmond; Miss Mary
Moulton, Richmond; Mr. and Mrs.
John D.Potts, Richmond: Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Barrett, Birmingham; Mrs.
Francis Herreshoft", New York; Mr.
and Mrs. E. B. Lyon, Durham, N. C.
Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Wernwag, Beth
ayres, Fa.; Mr. and Mrs. Thornton

PRESIDENT GILBREATH
IS WELL PLEASED
President Sidney Gilbreath of the
East Tennessee slate normal is grati
fled with the outlook for the school for
the coming year. Tha opening occur
red this morning. He stated that in
the observation school from the second
to the seventh grade no more pupils
can be taken. In the observation
school model work is done, and tuition
it tfhftrf ed. The high eehedl depart
ment of the public schools of Johnson
City is taught at the normal and about
200 will enroll in this division. The
normal department has prospects for a
much larger enrollment than last year.
Already the greater number of the
rooms in the young ladies' dormitory
have been selected and many young
women and young men have secured
homes in private families. During the
past year more than 800 students have
attended the normal school, and the
effects of the training which the young
teachers have received here are expect
ed to be seen in the schools of East
Tennessee during this season.
"If Tennessee has to have a republi-
can senator, Newell Sanders might as
well remain where he is; but Tennes
see is entitled to democratic represen
tation, and the thing to be done is to
settle on a senator and elect him and
not to have any split-up on persons and
personalities," declares the Memphis
Commercial Appeal. That is axactly
why the democracy has ordered a pri
mary to decide who the democrats in
the legislature shall support. How
else, pray, could legislators be sure of
the choice of the partv-at-laree?
Nashville Democrat.
AN INSTRUCTIVE
ZOOLOGY DISPLAY
The menagerie and wild beast ex
hibit ofl'ered by the Sun Brothers'
World's Progressive Shows this season
is a distinct departuae. Here will be
seen on exhibition the choicest selec
tions of the zoolcgic creation. They
are all exhibited in massive and com
modious cages and so arranged that all
visitors to the shows can get an unob
structed view of them.
Uniformed keepers will be in attend
ance to explain the different chaiac
teristics and habits of the animals.
The wild beasts are looked after with
tendert-Sl care, both on account of thtir
extraordinary value and the fact that
few can be duplicated at any price.
This exhibition is ivA a collection of
wild animals such as are commonly
seen in zoological displays. Each is' a
splendid speciman of its kind and
treated with the utmost tenderness and
care.
The performing section of the Big
Top performance as it is known in
show parlance, is all new this season.
An imperial program lasting two hours
in duration is oil'ered by artist of inter
national reputation, including ring per
formers, clowns, aerial artists, sensa
tional specialists, performing horses,
trained elephant, acrobatic dogs, edu
cated ponies, trained lions and leopards
and various other features of human
and animal nature, some faniiiur but
most "exclusive. The Royal Court Jap
anese Acrobatique Company; the re
no wised Cevene Troupe; the Electii.
que l)e KamoK, the Mexican Juan De
Zamora Aerial Troupe, from the city
of Mexico; the Great Harrietts; Miss
A'Jele Dutlun, the Equcstric Queen,
are among the star hcadlineis in this
big diversity of good things.
This show will spread its tents on
the grounds at Johnson City, Monday
Sept. 18. one day only, afternoon and
night.

THE SOLDIERS IRE
GIVES THIRD PUCE
The ngony is over and the pennant
is won but not by the Soldiers. Bristol
got the bunting bnt it did so by defeat
ing other teams than Johnson City.
In twenty-five games played between
Johnson City and Bristol Johnson City
won fifteen. But the race is not al
ways the swift and therefore Johnson
City is in third place in the official
standing, with the best team in the
league. Manager Taylor has reason
to congratulate himself on the way his
team has responded to his manage
ment since he was placed in charge.
It is an assured fact that there will be
professional baseball here next year
as all teams have decided to slay in
the Appalachian League. This will
be good news to Johnson City fans.
The Soldiers are now in BlucficM play
ing a scries of games and won Monday's
game but the others have m I hern
heard from.

BIOGRAPHY OF
' ROBERT L. TAYLOR
lion. A. A. Taylor, who with his
brothers, Hugh and James P., are en
gaged In writing the biography ot
their erojrher, rive te Pcnamr Mler
L. Teylor, has forwarded to the pub
lishers the table of contents, also chap
ters on the naming of "The Kiddle and
the Bow," "Scenes in Happy Vall'-y"
and "The War of the Roses." The
chapter on Happy Valley is from the
pen of Col. James P. Taylor. 1 lie
chapter on "The War of the Roses" is
from the pen of Hon. A. A. Taylor.
Accompanying the foregoing was part
of the tribute from the pen of De Long
Rice, one of the most exquisite that
will be found in the volume.
Rather than a commercial enter
prise, the authors look on this work ah
a labor of love. To this end stock in n
publishing company will not be
hawked about but the printer w ill u
sue the foregoing and take subscrip
tions to those desiring the two vol
umes, one of his life and the other
containing his lectures. The first edi
tion will be about r0,000 and the sub
sequent edition will probably go over
a quarter of a million copies. There
will be little trouble about the sale of
the volumes as there is a growing and
insistent demand for them.
"You feel like sorting out and tying
together the memories of this trip and
ieeping them separate from all other
trips.'" A woman recently said this
ifter a pleasant experience on a Bur
lington Route "Personally Conducted''
excursion party to California. She trav
iled alone, but met many agreeable
oeople on the car, which was in charge
if a special conductor. This good natureo"
tfficial was a well-informed, courteous man
t?ho went ail the way through with
lha party, looking after everyone's com
fort and attending to all the little details of
die trip. Thus a woman or child in one ol
these parties can travel with perfect safety
l.nd freedom from care. If you would like to
know more about the Burlington's comfort
Ible and inexpensive personally conducted
incursions, please write me a postal and I'll
rend you maps, booklets, pictures, etc., by re
turn mail.
