Are tyiose all the advantages (?) you can get out of incorporation? Stir them up, Bro. Beene, stir them up. We confess to a disappointment that the editor of the Statesman failed to be renominated for the Senate, Bro.

State have come to the conclusion, strange to say. that they must agree to disagree. Con sequently their paper presents the curious spectacle of supporting the gold standard on one page and blowing it all to smithereens on another. Wonder what Gov. Turney thinks this State is a modern In dus euoh as the poets sing about? If so, he is dreadfully mistaken, Thia state is not the one to be run into fresh debt! The people have a heavy enouph burden to stand now without incurring fresh out lay for special legislatures. The Nashville American of Thursday published a fac-simile notice sent out by an A. P.

Revise that Constitution and blot out all those dead letter laws which now perplex the people, Make it a clean sweep of every thing objectionable or nothing.

' read before the bar Association. There are lourteen reasons for the adoption ot a new Constitu tion, First, the present constitution ptrmUs unjust and unequal taxa tion to the great detriment of the commercial and industrial interests of the State. Secondly the administration of the criminal laws is so defective that illiteracy and ignoranco are. oret'er red to in t el h ge. nee ana chars acter. Thirdly the criminal cat sys tem is an unspeakable disgrace to the State. Fourthly the Supreme Court sits in tiiree different cities, so that it is impossible to speed the tardy wheels of ju-tice.

Lastly the custom of ptwiding public officials with fr e jjasses i. an evil deserving of consideration. It is high time the State of Ten nessee became aware ot the disad vantages under which it is now la boring With unjust laws, a fossil iferous governor and a corruj t ring of political shystt rs control ling its affairs: .110 wonder it is now suffering from neglect. Knowing fully the conditions under which he must enter the State if he should wish to do so, no sane man would delay a moment to seek more con genial fie'ds. Talk about anarchy and repudiation in National affairs we believe charity shou d begin at home. Turn the ra-cals out who would immolate the state upon the altar ot Mammon. Drive them hence, brtak up t heir select celeries and bribing councils, make over anew the Constitution a thing which they bitterly oppose, as it will deprive them of the chancp of fattening themselves at the ex- pense of the citizens und all will be well. Remove those obstruct ions and an era of prospcritv will ; dawn upon a State oppressed by A . those who should lovo it nest, out who have despised and neglected it. It is high time to tear the mask away. All know what it conceals but have possessed their souls in patience until now. It is hard to distinguish friend from foe in this matter, as both political parties h v uA this imnortans busi ness with disdain, but that should not deter us from a constant fight ,r which u elfnuJ n mmam " ' sal..cr ile for the . lu s.

This ma lies aoout 60.00 realized within threr months and in the hardest of hard times is doing more- than well and on its realiza tion the News will insist on its-efforts to help raise the fund being recognized. The Sequachee Musi cal Society having dissolved itself b) limitation and the Dramatic Society disbanded, the lew dollars moifa necessary to purchase an or gan for the church ought to bf1 raised by its members as heretofore inosf oi the work has been clone by outside parties.

There is more Catarrh in this sec tion of toe country than all other diseases put together and until the last few years was supposed to be in curable. I1 or a great many years doc tors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure by local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured bv F. J.
