Thursday, October 5, 1911 Politicians throughout the- First district are - discussing the recent appoiutment ofO. C. Keenef of Kingsport to the position of physi cian at Brushy Mountain. It is openly stated that Governor Hoop er is trying the Brownlow tactics xf pacifying his enemies, by giving them the cream of the jobs. Keen er gets an $1800 per year job," the fattest thing handed to any First district man, and he receives this appointment only a few weeks af ter Congressman Sells had him re moved from the office of postmaster at Kingsport, because it was a known fact that t he had apposed nut; iticpuwwaii vicivcu ianxi Atiii and had supported Bob Taylor for governor,- Congressman Sells had publicly stated that he would get Keener's scalp for his "unfaithful ness, and the' friends of the First distrsct congressman cannot un derstand the governor's action in permitting Sells' enemies to selecc for the fattest job in the district, a man Sells had just ousted from office; . ... , The Times takes exception to a story sent out from Newport in re gard to the " small-pox Situation . It belittles the spread of the dis ease, which has already caused the death of one of the county's best known men. It is such " belittle ment which makes small-pox dan gerous. Papers like the Times, always afraid of the truth; shirk it; It is not doing its , duty by its headers when it fails to note the true conditions 'in its territory. rYe know it hurts the community, hurts the county, hurts ..'Newport, but what matters a Uriel period -of business suffering, when public . ity will prevent the further spread of disease. It is pretty cheap of The Times to deny the truth, as a further effort to fool its readers. The press throughout East Tenn essee has been showering praises ou the exposition for the courteous treatment afforedd the editors. Not only does the publicity ; de partment of the exposition believe in paying for advertising, but they . also have shown their appreciation ' of the vast amount of free stuff ' carried by the. weeklies by giving them many favors in return. There are no set of men more ap ; preciative than ' the editors, and the exposition people have taken advantage of this knowledge, v ' - Circus men say that the aband onment of the parade is but a mat ter of a few years; that it is' an abuse of the stock to put on the parade, as the horses would have a much needed rest during that period. "This will be sad news to the small boy, but it is a question after all whether the parade is wqrth the, time, trouble and ex pense. '. . '- .'" ' ". Uncle Jim Boley's name has been mentioned for governor, but when interviewed in regard to the matter, Uncle Jim stated "that while he believed in harmony, he was not a candidate at this time, lelieving that he , would make a better mayor J. than governor, ; as he thought there" was more in the mayor's job. ;..'; 1' ' ' . ' Former Representative; Massey, it is , said, wanted' to control the appointment of the postmaster at . the Soldier's Home, upon the death ef the old postmaster, but Con gressman Sella' exercised his right to name the postmaster of the First --district and had his man named. It is reported that Congressman Sells has expressed, the hope that Judge- Mc Henderson's health will not prevent hiniirom making, the race for congress. Apparently Congressman Sells does not fear the Judge, although the judge has been somewhat of a runner irt past campaigns . . . Turkey and Italy have engaged in a scrap. Maybe this, will check the immigration to . this country fora while, and if the aim of the soldiers of the two - countries is good, there may be an immigration to another land, not at present deflnately located on the map. .. Teddy Roosevelt picked up an injured soldier at El Caney, and now that he has recovered he is made postmaster at the Soldier's Home; It isn't bad, sometimes, to get shot, but the victim should be particular about who does the rescue act. ' Many a man has .taken a joke seriously, and there has been many a press agent story for a politician started as a joke, but the recipient of the favorable mention could not seo the point and really ho was running. v hought The Democratic committee with Chairman Barton at its head handed the go-called regulars a jolt or two last week, , which ' it will take some effort on the part Of Vertrees; to overcome without, joiu ingln the primary plan. t " ,'.. ; Perhaps Canadian reciprocity ilotonly put Mr. Taft in bad, but also placed Champ Clark r in an awkward position, which fact will be regretted by Woodrow Wilson as his boom continues to make a noise. ; The fairs are a thing of the past, the.big show has appeared and dis appeared' with a good many hard earned dollars and the next event toward which we look forward to is the Thanksgiving turkey. . , The Appalachian Exposition people should offer a prize next year to the town selling .the most exposition tickets.1 Newporjt would certainly give the rest of the East Tennesseu towns a run. The contest: is bringing hun dreds of new subscribers to The (Plain Talk, and this paper is now going into more, homes than any paper, ever before published in Cocke county, It is amusing to see the way the word Honorable is abused. The dictionary offers a wide latitude and there are men who are glad to take advantage of this latitude. U V; - - '"": vC Science will finally find a cure for the dread disease pellegra, but it is hard on those now suffering with the disease to look forward to a future which holds no hope. V Robert Corbett of ; Nashville should be a good witness before a grand jury as to the bootlegging in Newport, from the quoted speeches of Mayor Howse- 'V:.;., . v: Two more days to work for the special prize of a' watch, now being offered by The Newport Plain Talk, for the most business of the bonus offer. . . . ' "We believe that the Fair can be a success with the proper people behind it, and Col. John'M. Jones seems to be the man for the job. The New York World says: "Taft could recover some of his lost ground if he would send some guilty trust magnates to jail." " The violation of the law in New port is used as a factor in a Nash ville campaign. , Surely this old town iVnow on the map. Because she was hugged in Bal: tiuiore a ; woman secured $500 damages. Hugging must be some thing u'nusal in that town. Virginia editors are solid lor Woodrow Wilsqn." The delegation to the National convention will line up the same way. : 1 There are some fine chickens in Cocke county, but the big exhib itors overshadowed, them at the Knoxville Poultry Show. . The Independent Democrats say they are j ust as much Democrats as any regular and site facts to prove their contention. - A thousand dollar hen was ex hibited at Knoxville. . Wonder if she will taste any better than a Cocke county fryer. The value, of domestic animals, poultry and bees in Tennesse has jumped from $60,000,000 to $110,. 000,000 in 1911. The new Democratic paper has started out'with the idea of making Senator Luke Lea the butt of its abuse. . : ; It is said that the cranberry crop is to be snort, so wnac is tne use of thinking of Thanksgiving Day. Not finding" anything definite, now it is said that the Maine was blown up from the exterior. Government experts say that Tennessee is taking the lead in road improvement. There is one thing which fol lows a circus which is uot: enjoyed dust. , - , Newport had her share of boot leggers before the Federal court. If some body iso't trying to scrap in Europe, business is dull. v Vertices still has the so-called Regular committee in hand. About the hardest thing a man can be called is an iugrate. Surely They Don't Mean Mayor Greer Mayor Howse has placed the liquor sellers of Nashville under renewed ob ligations to him. He has attempted in a practical way to justify the existence of the Nashville saloons by exhibiting samples of whisky and beer alleged to have been procured from saloons in Newport. . In his speech Monday night Mayor Howse declared that he had sent an agent to Newport and that he came back saying he could take a ball of yam and, standing in Gov. Hooper's office door, and throw it into three saloons, and as he exhibited several bottles of whisky and a bottle of beer the mayor exclaimed: "Here are the goods." "V l Proud of his achievement in show ing that the law is flagrantly violated in Newport, as it is in Nashville, the mayor hurled the awful question at Gov Hooper: ' - :( Why don't the Governor enforce the Statewide laws at Newport? Gov. Hooper is the Governor of the commonwealth of Tennessee. He has no more poWer to close the saloons in Newport than he has to close them in Nashville. As chief magistrate of the State, he has no more authority in directing the official course of the mayor of Newport, than he has to di rect the official course of the mayor of Nashville, and if what Mayor Howse says about the existence of saloons at Newport be true, the answer to his query as to why the Governor does not enforce the law at Newport, is that Newport, like Nashville, has a mayor who is abasing himself by refusing to do his plain duty. That place, likje Nashville, has a mayor who is violat ing his oath of office by allowing the laws to be trampled under foot. ",- ; ;, The exhibition by Mayor , Howse of "The goods" from Newport saloons in no way'" justifies "Mayor Howse's de fiant attitude toward the laws of; the land. The exhibition of an outrage at Newport , does not make a vlrture of vice in Nashville, and all t, Mayor Howse has done in his exhibition of the liquor procured from the saloons of Newport is to reveal the shame of other officers of the law, which in no degree is an extenuation of his own affront to a decent community. Nash ville Tennesseean. The name of Hon. W. O. Mims, has been mentioned In connection with the Democratic nomination for Gover nor. We do not know how Mr. Mims fells regarding Jhe matter of entering politics at this stage of the a;ame, but we do know that the state has no more worthy young man. He is a good lawyer, an eloquent speaker and we have no doubt that he would be fully able to meet all comers 03 the stnmpifhe were called to bear the standard of the democratic party in this State.

Smith's Corner Drug Store, Newport, Tenn. A Knoxville Press dispatch of Sept. 19 says: During the past week the ngnt tor congess in tne second con gressional district has begun to loom up on the horizon. Congressman Richard W. Austin has returned from Washington, and many of his strong supporters and postmasters have seiz ed tho opportunity of coming to the exposition and many conferences have been held. The opposition, however, has not been idle, and before many moons it will have a candidate in the field against Mr. Austin for the nomination. Who this will be Is not knowu. Many favor W. H. Buttram as tne candidate, but tne acorn crop is a failure this year, and it is not now believed'that Buttram will enter the race. Many are looking to Judge II, Lindsay to make the race against Mr. Austin. Morristown Democrat. - Gov. Hooper went out of the state to name a member of the Tennessee immigration commission, that is to spend $10,000 setting forth the advan tages of the state. If a Tennessee leg islature is good enough to appropriate that sum certainly citizens of Tenn essee.rught to be good enough to ex pend it. Johnson City Staff. A Bristol dispatch declares "the members of the republican organiza- j tion in Sullivan county are up in ai ms j because of the appointment by Gov. Hooper of Dr. George Keener, of that county, to be surgeon at Brushy Moun taiu, prison. A meeting of the execu tive committee will likely be held this week to condemn the appointment. JTbe organization leaders, who are a unit in protesting, declare that the ap pointment was made without consult ing the . republican Committee and against its wishes. They say it is a slap at Gov. Hooper's own party in Sullivan county, and especially at Oon- crresstran Sells, who had Keener re moved as posemaster at Kingsport only a few weeks ago for alleged disloyalty to the republican party last year. Tb republican leaders say that the ap pointment not only puts Gov Hooper in a ridiculous attitude, but that he has embarrassed his own party and Congressman Sells."
