The case is set for hear ing before Justice Golden, at Duke dom, Wednesday next.

Official announcement of the con tolluatiou of the two revenue col lection districts of Tennessee, with headquarters at Nashville, and the appointment of Robt. S. Sharp, of Chattanooga, as Collector, was made in Washington Saturday by Commissioner of Internal Revenue Capers. A telegram stating that the consolidation had been perfect ed and that Sharp had been ap pointed was received Saturday night from Congressman Hale, of the Second District, by United States Marshal Overall, Ernest Caldwell, the present Col lector of the Fifth, or Nashville District, has been commissioned a revenue agent, but when asked about the matter Saturday night Mr. Caldwell stated that he knew nothing of the consolidation, and would be unable to announce his I acceptance or rejection of the new position until he had consulted with his friends. Collector E. E. Butler of the Second District, the other district affected by the consolida tion, has been offered the chief deputyship for the consolidated dis trict. Whether Mr. Butler will as- cept has not been made known. The removal of Caldwell and Butler takes the last two impor tant Federal offices in the State out of the control of the Brownlow faction and puts the .Evans-Hale-Sanders crowd at the top lor good. It has been a long and interesting fight but the end is at hand, and it seems from the two bones thrown out to Brownlow that an at tempt at least to bring them with- n the fold will be made. It also means that a delegation from Ten nessee to the National Republican Convention will be a Roosevelt Cortelyou delegation, and that Con gressman Hale, of the Second Dis trict, will succeed "Boss" Brownlow ss National Commiteeeman. a prediction ot tne result was published in The American several days ago and the offictal announce ment tallies with it exactly.

Very good! Mr. Watterson would make an ex cellent Senator. But be may per form another service where the need tor service is greater. Let the Democrats nominate Mr. Wat terson for President. Where can they find a more worthy or a more inspiring candidate? Let the party nominate - Mtv- Watterson, - and- it will have a candidate who was a brilliant leader figbticg valliantly and with force and effect in the front ranks of the Democratic party before Mr. Bryan had left off play ing shinny in an Illinois country town. It would have a candidate whose rame is familiar from the St. Lawrence to the Golden Gate, and one whose Democracy none would question. It would have a candi date who has fought more battles for the party, and for true Democ racy, unselfishly and without hope or desire of personal reward, than any other Democrat in the Nation; who was a party leader in the he roic nays ot i naen; wno was in tiie forefront when there were giants there, and who has written and helped to frame more National Democratic platforms than any other living man, Mr., vvaiterson would De no stranger to the Democrats of the ) I East."

Mr. Watterson is vigorous in mind and body. He is National in spirit, and broadly -catholic in bis views. Though he has expressed the opinion that no man who wore a gray jacket will ever be President, there are thousands who wore blue jackets who would earnestly sup port him, and few would be so dwarfed or warped as to oppose him on that account. He would have plenty of enemies, but they, would be Democracy's enemies. j Upon him, as the candidate, all (81 1 . BALLOON ASCENSION Feature of Big Sale ot Suburban Lots Held at Humboldt.

Something like l.OOCj people attend" ed the sale, and, although the lots were from eight to twelve blocks from the business part of the city, the investors of Humboldt showed their confidence in the town's fu ture by paying high prices for every one sold. Ninety lots changed hands and the price received was about $8,000. Miss Posie Tatum. the little daughter of City Marshal G. F. Tatum, was the successful contestant for the free lot.
