Additional foreign priations bill being passed, it has been rers are to be brought here and the work feared that the reputation of the state pushed to a rapid completion. was endangered and that Tennessee's credit would suffer. Comptroller Dib rell has refused to pay out any funds whatever, but the people of Tennessee know well thai his refusal to ,pay any of the slate's obligations without spec ified authority from a legislative act is purely a political move, and the move ment on foot to raise mor.y to meet this interest due July 1st is a plan of the opposition, the fusionists, to save the state's credit and at the same time, block the game of the "regulars." The latter have sanctioned Mr. Dibrell in what he doiu, believeing that if the state could not meet these claims as they fell due, the people would hold the "fusionists" who broke the legisla tive, quorum responsible, and they would thus have strong political capital for the next campaign. This move ment among the bankers to meet the interest claims checkmates the ("regu lars" and saves the state's reputation, at the same time. It was understood that at least one third of the amount will be made up n Knoxville. TherVs a Reaaon.
