There are no misgivings amongst Democrats, who from state headquarters ure directing the Rye candidacy for governor. Con fidence is shown on all sides. They have a landidate directly from the people to appeal to the people to make Tennessee again a Democratic state and to go on record as upholding a Democratic president. General Rye was nominated by delegates, from the "outlying" counties. Not one vote did he get from Shelby, Davidson Knox or Hamilton. There is not about him even the suspicion of any connec tion with the special interests that find their ho es in the larger cities. There is not a smell of the smoke of corporation influence or acquaintance. Born in Benton, he has spent the lat ter years of his life in Henry county. In his modest way h ehas there played his manly part to the complete ap proval of all who know him or have come in any way in contact with him. Amongst them, without reference to party or faction, he is much beloved. He stands for -anity, for peace not that peace which passeth understand ing, but that which appeals to the un lerstanding for progress and pros perity. He stands for the old-time principles of his party, which amongst other things includes dignity in afflce ana lecency in methods. Confidence in his election comes from a thorough investigation of con ditions in every district and county in the state. From them all favorable reports come. In those counties where his duties as attorney general have led him there will be practically no opposition. Ben-1 ton and Henry will be hardlv morn solid than Weakley. Gibson, Dhinn Lake and Lauderdale. The neighbor ing counties to these are more Demo cratic in this campaign than they have been in years. Madison, Hardeman, Fayette, Tipton and Dickson are In harmonious accord. Henderson, Car roll, Hardin and a few others have been persistently true to Republican leanings, but it is thought that the ldal wave that has set in so strong for Democratic victory in November may bring them Into line. Middle Tennessee is In excellent condition. The Tenth congressional district will practically offset the Republican majority for Hooper in East Tennes see, and the rest of the state will make the Rye maJorUy. That, at least, is the way the Rye campaign managers are figuring it. sucn counties as Maury, William son, Rutherford and Giles, which have been the battlegrounds for much fac tional dissension during the past few years, win give Democratic major! ties for Rye. Davidson went for Williams for su preme court Judge by nearly 1,000 ma jority in August. It is confidently ex pected to give a majority In excess of &,ooo ror Rye In November. Congressman Hull's district, the old Fourth, so long represented by Ben ton McMillln and now so ably repre sented by Cordell Hull, sends in splen did reports'. There are a few Repub lican counties in that npper Cumber land section, but there are many more which are very strongly of the Demo cratic faith. There will be very little trouble in the Third, Congressman Moon's dis trict. . , One thing especially that the com mitee is asking at this time is that the various counties put up strong men for the legislature. It is part of the Hooper plan to nominate legislative candidates in every county. The gov ernor wants the full Republican vote aroused, and is making the effort of his life to solidify it for Ihimself. Much as he courts a third term as governor, he is no less anxious In the campaign to make Tennessee, in na tional as in state politics, "permanent ly Republican." It Is essential, there fore, that Democrats meet him at his own game. They are urged to name candidates In every legislative district , and to name strong, forcfeul men. Grave problems will confront the next governor. The blunders of Hooper's administration must be Tes tified, and a new order inaugurated. A strong body of able legislator. to co-operate with Gov. Rye will quickly bring order out of chaos and restore credit out of . the. financial dishonor which the Republican governor has infliated upon the state's heretofore fair name., ,- . It is believed that Gen. Rye's speak ing itinerary will be a triumphal march through the state. He Is an ex cellent speaker and creates enthusi asm by the convincing manner In which he presents facts. II I ST- III CO AT CO.
