.Announces Self Firm Believer
State-Wide Primary.
Numerous inquiries from friends
in Tennessee with regard to his at
titude towards the gubernatorial
contest bet ween Gov. Patterson and
ex-Senator Carmack have caused
Senator Tajlor to make the follow
ing statement:
"I have said nothing since my
interview in which I disagreed with
the State committee upon the meth
od of holding the election. I am
tor a State-wide primary, just as
Carmack and I had it out, and I
shall fight for it in the future.
"The majority of the Democratic
party in Tennessee should make the
nomination of every officer, and I
hope that no man will be elected to
tbe legislature this fall who does
not openly declare for a primary law
giving the majority of the people
the right to say who shall be nomi
nees. 1 am opposed to any manip
ulation which takes from the peo
ple that right."
Senator Taylor said that he
would not be a candidate for dele-
. gate, to the Denver convention an
honor which he thinks should go to
one who has not been complimented
by his party.

One of the most curious claim
cases ever known to Congress was
that of Senora Feliciana Mendiola,
who lived at Angeles, Pampanga,
Philippine Islands. The Senora
rented a house to Uncle Sam for
the use of some of his teamsters.
When the mule-driving contingent
moved out of the house after a
short occupancy the senora de
clared under an oath that some of
the siding boards were missing
from the kitchen wall, and she
asked for $200 in gold to repay her
for the damage to her property.
This case of Sendra Feliciana
Mendiola fills fourteen pages of a
House of Representative docu
ments, it. contains a long letter
from the Secretary of .War on the
question of the r- kitchen'

aoauioict ouuimervine swore
that, in his opinion, the boards
dropped out of place by their own
weight. Teamster pickle said
them board was punk."
The army board which sat on the
case thought it was very doubtful
m strict justice if senora Feliciana
should be allowed any money, but
nnauy tne members granted her
the sum of $30 in gold. This ac
tion, of course, was not .final, but
the Committee on War Claims in
House and Senate approved the
finding. , -
The senora received $30, and
doubtless it gave her some satis
