Taking Its Name From a Revolu
tionary Soldier Buried Near
Union City.
Following from the Union City
correspondent of the Nashville
Banner is a sketch of Dallas Hill,
which took its name from an old
revolutionary soldier who fought
with Washington and LaFayette:
From the second story of the
court house, looking west, Dallas
Mill, five miles away, can bo plain
ly seen, and from the top of this
all of Union
miles east of it. as far as Paducah
Junction. While nearly everyone
in this section knows of Dallas
Hill, but few know anything of
the man from whom it takes its
name Joshua Dallas, an old rev
olutionary soldier who owned the
land on which the hill is located,
and whose house rests but a few
hundred yards away. Joshua
Dallas was- born near Richmond,
Va. His father, who was bravely
fighting with the American forces
bocame incapacitated for duty, and
Joshua, who was but 17 years of
age, took his father's place, joining
the revolutionary army at Norfolk,
Va., and fought valiantly until the
close of the war, eighteen months
later. After the close of the war
he moved to Franklin County,
Tonn., then to Lincoln County, and
then moved to this county, about
1830. He was the father of fif
toen children all of whom are now
dead. Ho had one sou who moved
to St. Clair County, Mo., who was
the father of eighteen boys and
three girls. Mrs. Dallas died
about eight years after coming to
this county and her remains were
interred in a private graveyard
on the farm. In 18-18 Mr.
Dallas passed away and was
laid by her side. There were some
fifteen people buried in this ceme
tery, but when Beech Church, a
half mile away, was organized,
and a burying ground attached,
the people ceased to inter their
dead in the Dallas cemetery, pre
ferring to burv their loved ones
in the churchyard.
The Dallas burying ground is in
a state of dilapidation and decay.
A wagon road runs through it, the
grave of the old revolutionary sol
dier is unmarked, and in a few
more years there will be no one to
point out the spot whore sleeps one
who fought with Washington and
Lafayette. Joshi.a Dallas and one
of his sons were in the war of 1812,
and fought Packenham at New Or-
learns. One of Obion County's
most hijrhly respected citizen is
James Dickey, of near Rives, who
is a grandson of Joshua Dallas.
Mr. Dickey, who was 76 years of
age, trie S2Ulu oi last oeptemoer
was born in Franklin County,
Tenn., and moved to this county
55 years ago. The 20th of next
September he will have been mar
ried fifty years. His wife is still
living, and no couple in the county
have more friends than they. Mr
Dickey says he has often heard his
grandfather speak of being with
Washington, LaFayette and in
Indian War with Davy Crockett,
and supposed to have been in the
Creek war.
Another revolutionary soldier,
named Parker, sleeps in a lone
grave on the Lake Bluff. Judge
W. II. Caldwell says that Parker
died about forty years ago, and
that the family were early settlers
here, being here when he came
here in 1832.
A smooth-faced dude entered a
barber shop and asked to be shaved.
After carefully covering his face
with lather the tonsorial artist sat
down and began to pursue a paper.

"For your beard to grow, so I

Well, the Hanna banner has
been raised, and the Jlanna boom
for the Republican nomination for
President in 1904 is on the road.
It will strike many as having been
fittingly started in London, from
whence Haniia's two administra
tions as brevet-President has been
so strongly endorsed. Senator
Hanna was in Washington when
Perry Heath's London interview
launching the boom was published.
He denies being a candidate for
President, but he does it so jovially
that everybody can see that he is
tickled almost to death with the
idea. No one who knows the re
lations between Perry Heath and
Hanna and between Hanna and
Mr. McKinley will believe that
the Heath interview was a surprise
to either of the other two men, and
there is little doubt that the fu
power of the Administration
through the army of Federal office
holders, will be oxercised to push
the Hanna boom along and make
his nomination possible, unless the
Republican press attacks it
viciously that its impracticability
will be plain. That is what the
Democrats fear. No Democrat
can be found since the boom started
who does not sincerely hope that
Hanna will get the nomination
Democrats wish him to get it, not
only because they think he would
be easy to beat, but because they
enjoy beating him more than any
other man that could possibly bo
nominated. The Heath interview
is in reality a feeler of the Repub
lican pulse, especially of the edi
torial pulse. So that it depend
on how it is received by the Re
publican editors whether the Han
na boom will be withdrawn or
Representative Latimer, of
South Carolina, who is a candidate
to succeed Senator McLaurin,
in Washington on business. Speak
ing of South Carolina politics, he
said: "John McLaurin has been
speaking in the State in favor of
Republican policies, and it has
been suggested that I answer him
However, I do not believe in rush
ing into a campaign that is eigh
teen months off, and I shall choose
my own time tosay what I have to
say." Of Gen. "Wade Hampton's
refusal of the offer of the post
mastership of Columbia, Mr. Lat
imer said: "I have no doubt the
offer was made m the hope of se
curing the influence of that grand
old warrior in favor of Senator
McLaurin's plans, and he has
shown that his influence is not to
be secured in that fashion. There
isn't money enough in the world
to buy Gen. Hampton."
Trade has not to a satisfactory
extent, followed our flag into the
Philippines, if boots and shoes
may be considered fairly repre
sentative of other articles of com
merce. . Although it is a fact
generally admitted, both at home
and abroad, that American shoes
are the best and cheapest in the
world, an official statement from
the War Department shows that
both Spain and Germany sold
many more boots and shoes in the
Philippines last year than the
United States the exact figures
being Spain, $74,183; Germany,
150,241, the United States, $7,832.
Mr. McKinley's contention is that
we took and intend to keep the
Philippines solely for commercial
reasons. In view of the tremen
dous amount of cash we have put
and are putting into the Philip
pines it would Beem that our trade
ought to make a better showing
than it does in boots and shoes to
leave Mr. McKinley's cwntention
any standing at all.
The statement has been very
positively made in Washington
j is week by those who are be
lieved to speak for the Adminis
tration that Minister Conger will
not be allowed to return to China,
and that his resignation will be
accepted at the expiration of his
present leave of absence. It is
said that the Administration re
gards his public interviews on
matters pertaining to China and
the articles published over his sig
nature as decidedly undiplomatic,
and that he no longer has the sup
port of the Administration in his
effort to get the Republican nomi
nation for Governor of Iowa.
Men who have been disposed to be
friendly to Conger are thoroughly
disgusted with his throwing bo
quets at tho Chinese Minister to
the United States, who did more
than any other man to discredit
Conner's reports from Pekiu in
the early days of the Chinese) ne
Gen. Chaffee, another Adminis
tration pet, has shown how unfit
ted he is for the command of the
American Army in the Philip
pines, to which be will succeed as
soon as he arrives at Manila, by
making the worst sort of a break
on the eve of his departure from
China a break that adds to the
enmity already too plainly shown
toward Americans by all the
powers in China except the En
glish. It was at an entertainment
given by the English officers, and
doubtless Chaffee had looked upon
the wine when it was red, but that
was no excuse for him. He was
6ent to China on a purely military
errand, and yet he made a speech
in which he used the following
language: "Let kings, ministers
and politicians say what they may,
but I can tell you this, that never
will you see Americans and Brit
ishers facing each other in the
field. Our national policy may be
to steer clear of international com
plications, but should circum
stances arise in which we must
make a choice our inclination will
be with the Britishers." Lan
guage like that, used by the com
mander of the American troops in
China, was an uncalled for insult
to every power over there except
the English, and Chaffee deserves
to be court martailed for it. But
no official notice has been taken of
it by this Government, and none is
ikely, unless it be forced by the
insulted powers.
