Tennessee is not "tho worst gov erned State iu the Union," as an unprejudiced investigation will show but she is facing conditions which demand clear-headed handling. She has got to cut expenses in some way in order that her floating debt may be wiped out, and she has also, got to make some provisions for creating a sinking fund with which to gradual ly reduce her burdensome bonded debt. ' " There is no sound reason for dilly dallying about it. Taxes cannot be increased; that is certain. The way out, then, is to cut expenses wherev er it is possible to cut them without crippling the public service. We don't believe in cheap men; there is nothing in them as a general rule, l)Ut we can pay public officials salar ies comrnensurae with their duties and at the same time, by exercising the proper sort of economy, save a lot of money. We can save a lot by reducing the number of courts, through the workings of the Jarvis ar.d Estes laws, a judicious law rela- tive to excess coal oil fees, and by paying fewer officials in he execu tive branches of the Government. If Tennessee were out of debt she could afford a good many luxuries he cannot afford now, It is, there fore, our duty to meet the issue squareiy, iairiy ana wiuioui preju dibe, and do something. The Legis lature can save the State a lot of money if it will act with wisdom, and we trust it will. Nash vijle A-merican.

Saturday, tho last day of 1898 made i:n unenviable record, it being as tersely stated by a contemporary "about as disagreeable a day as ever experienced. There was a chill in the atmosphere emblematic of grip, pneumonia and rheumatism, the side walks were as uncertain as weather predictions, and rain tell like spittal from a demon afflicted with acrue. The intensity of thU(situation was re lieved before midnight by the very persistence of the element that could no longer stand the strain and snow became a welcome finale to the con tending forces. At first the flakes were great lace-like particles that made veritable apparitions of every thing, then it began to drift as though angry at its misspent energy." And the wind blew, how it did blow. But the raging storm went away somewhere, and on New Year's morn ing the sun was shining brightly. WHITWELL DEPARTMENT. GEO. W. LEWIS, Agent. The debate between Rev. J. U. , W. F. Smith, who has Wen at Johnson and Rev. A. W. While is' borne during the holidays returned interesting to a goo.l many, and to Athens Saturday. hinre nuniWrs attended every pighi TtHH.'lav niarlit the debate grew A CLUSTER OF LR1LL1AN1S. Our weary Many favorable comments were made on a letter from .a valued cor respondent at Whitwcll which ap peared iu the News some few weeks ago, but it is not enongh to acknowl edge the necessary of any reform and and let it go at that. There are plenty of bright business men in Whilwell if they can be only induced to take hold who might shape mat ters locally there that the good ef fects would become apparent in a short time. Why cannot some one call a meeting and set the ball to rolling. . A nursing bottle advertisement his beep discovered which reads: "When the baby is done drinking it must be unscrewed and laid in a cool place under a top. If the baby does not thrive on fresh milk it should be boiled." Probably this is an. appli cation of a popular precaution against summer complaint. Medical experts are all agreed that a thoroughly boiled baby is proof ngaint cholera infantum and most any other ail ment. Wk said some time ago and we repeat it that, the owners of real es tate in the Sequachee Valley should form some kind of an organization to let the outside world know that there are lands here for sale and im provement. Franklin County has been able to get over 100 families to locate during the year 1898 right on the mountain 905 feet above sea lev el. With all the natural advantages possessed ly Franklin County and possibly more something should be done to call attention to this val ley and the property owners who have so much at stake should initiate the movement. "Wk hope next week to be able to announce the date of the opening of the public school for the spring term which will be as soon as needed re pairs and other arrangements can be made. We content ourselves with saying that we start off with the in tention of having eight months school iu every pear hereafter if the peopl of the school district will on ly stand by the directors. Better ac commodatijns are needed, which we hope will be Arranged, and the school will be in charge of teachers as good as any in the county or State. We believe in home rule. Wk are glad to be assured by Mr, Melcher that the road np the moun tain is to W bnilt and that soon. The pooner the better. A road as con tt icplated would be a great help to the business of Sequachee and make the mountain lands available for sut lers. At present there is no safe road nearer than Jasper to get on the mountain and people who woul. traue here have to travel a Ions' dis down the Valley and back aain to get htT. The Tennessee Legislature met on Monday and there can be no doubt in their minds as to what is expected of them. We hope they will realize that they are elected to do some good for the State, reduce expenses and abolish unnecessary offices. -r . . i . . f.

McKinlcy's Speech at At lanta. President McKinley has touched the great heart of the South. He did it tenderly and compassionately. Ad dressing a Southern audience in 'a Southern city be spoke reverently o: the Confederate dead his tribute was eloquent, it was just. From one whosi heart thirty-five yours ago urged a stal wart man in blue to battlo against the cherishod principles of the Southern Confederacy ooiue these simple, yet re assuring words, of a now bom fraterni ty: ''Every soldier's grave made during the late, unfortunate divil war is a trib ute to American valor, and while when those graves were made we differed widely about the future of this govern ment, those differences were settled long ago by the arbitration of arms and tho tune has now como in the evo lution of sentiment and feeling under the Providonco of God, when in a spirit of fraternity we should share with you in the care, of the graves of the Confed erate soldiers." The South reveres tho Confederacy and holds those who di d in its defense "in tho purest affection, yet in her generous heart there is room for tho cultivation of that frater nity which gives life and vior to the sentiments so eloquently expressed by Mr. McKinley.
