Hon. Foster V. Brown of Chattanooga ibas now entered the lists, and in asign ed letter, to the Chattanooga Times, makes sorious charges against the may ,or of South Pittsburg, VV. H. Wilson.

None bad been there for four years and everybody supposed tbe town was un der the Adams law, as it certainly is." "Mr. Brown also charges that before tbe saloon was1 opened Wilson saw judge McEeynold's, talked to him a bout opening tbe saloon, and stated that be intended to see that a saloon was opened in So. Pittsburg," and tbe same thing Wilson told the attorney general, Mr. Whitaker.
