Special to the News, The Democrats of Grundy county met in mass convention in Altamont Saturday and endorsed the policy of the democratic party in Tennessee, and instructed for Frazier for. Gov ernor, Moon for Congress, Hon. L. V. Woodlee for State Senator, it be ing Grundy county's turn under the rotation rule to name the candidate for Senator from this district. Also instructed for Seiuachee Comity's choice for Floater, and McMilliu for U. S. Senator. The contract now in vogue be tween the T. C, I. & li. It. Co. aud their employees at this place seems to bo a very unsatisfactory one to the employes as they are working ou a sliding scale of wages based upon certain grades of iron, which is at a very low ebb just now, and it begins to look like wages havo slid down to the mud sill and stuck. Some people seem to think that the county court of Marion county acted very unwise for bonding that county for the purpose of building good roads. Wise or other wise we sincerely wish a spell of that kind would sweep over Grundy county once in a while. Nothing benefits the general public more than go6(I roads, and it is a foregone conclusion that the only way to get good roads is to build them and pay for them. Better roads have got to come throughout the state, and not a shill ing is to be gained by postponing the matter. "Procrastination is the thief of time." The earlier we get them the better pleased we will bo with the results, for they will yield a prof it from the day of their completion by enhancing the value of real estate and the saving to a large extent of worn-out and broken vehicles. The present net work of tnudbolcs in our county called roads, through which the traveling public have to drag to and fro is enough to make us hide our ' faces for shame, much less to raise a puny hand or voice in opposition to a reasonable proposition to get us out of the middle of this fix and give us easier sailing. We want good roads and expect to see the day when we shall have them, but it may not come until we shall have witnessed the funeral procession of the last apostle of "old fogyism."
