Monarchy Reigns
In Tennessee
Senator King Introduces
Some Bills.
It seems like from thel hills
which have recently; been in
troduced in the Senate of Tenn
essee that monarchy still reigns
in Tennessee and that the aver
age citizen has nothing to say
to its Senators and Represena
ti yes in regard ffo what the people
want. "A bill' was recently in
troduced and passed in the Seu
ate creating tle . office of
County JudgeLior .the County
of Grundy. Inhis bill it sets
6ut that "only.a lawyer" can fill
position, in Vother words
other citizen
the good
would be
County of Grundy
eligible to fill
this' office
The father
this bill is Senator T. J.- King,
who is also a lawyer, and ho
represented this County in
the Senate. This bill is' un
fair to -the .. good Citizens' of
Grundy and it would be border
ing on monarchy rule to specify
just what kind of a man would
be eligible to hold, this office.
Anyway . such a bill would he
unconstitutional anyway, as the
Constitution says "that , every
nvan ! entitle d to- hhL tfSc4 iif
he be eligible." We don't khov
wh v Senator King would want
iust a lawyer to hold- this ofEc
i as there are plenty of good husi
jneMmen in Grundy 'Countv
who could capably fill this
office just as well as a lawyer.
We have no fight on a 'lawyer
j and think they are a good thing
w nave du we leei uae any
Citizen in Grundy County whol
has an education could til) tins
office outside of a lawyer. We
1)ra- that Senator Kimr will
' amend this bill before the closing
of tha Legislature next week.
