A Dew paper is to be established
in Union City by W. It. Andrews.
Mr. Andrews was a former editor
of this paper and has owned and
controlled several newspaper en
terprises in this city. In the new
venture he will start with experi
ence in the work and prospects of
a liberal share of newspaper busi
ness. We extend the hand of fel
Tennessee should have a primary
election law, and it should be a di
rect primary without any nominate
ing convention attachments. There
should be also a provision for the
naming of delegates on a basis of
representation of one for each one
hundred Democratic votes or frac
tion thereof over fifty. There is
no Democracy in the unprece
dented, unauthorized and arbif

is one of the great newspapers of
a great country. The growth of
the Missouri Gazette from four
three-column pages in 1808 to the
St. Louis Republic of 190 seven
column pages in 190S is a faif index
of the vast and complex changes
in the development of the city and
its great enterprises. The edition
contains historical events touching
its life accurately and fully in an
extensive and attractive way, and
it will be some time before the
effort is eclipsed, while it gives
promise of making further pro

The suggestion that Patterson
is stronger with the Democratic
masses in Tennessee than is Bryan
come from an element which arous
es suspicions. Any sane or reason
able man would conclude with the
harmonizing of the various shades
of Democracy at Denver that Bry
an would be as strong and as pop
ular with the Democratic hosts in
Tennessee as any man in the State
and, if any difference at all, in bet
ter standing than either Patterson
or Carmack, who have just emerged
from a very bitter contest for the
tion. Is my suggestion to con
vey the na ning that Democrats
voting for atterson are going to
scratch the name of Bryan. If
so, what sort of Democracy is
this? Is the System at work in the
State and has the System adoped
Patterson. For the benefit of those
who do not know we will state that
the System is anything but Demo
cratic with either a capital D or a
small one. Wall Street and the
big monopolies comprise the Sys
tem, and if Bryan loses any votes
in Tennessee it will be on account
of the System.' As Democratic
nominees The Commercial does
not see why one should not get
practically as many votes as the
other. It looks like treason .ta,

ventured upon seven, say a New York

with a clatter.
"You can't blame him," remarked a
deeply excited old woman. ''Two

When the dishes lay prone upon the
floor, and the clatter they made had
subsided, the juggler walked over to a
table and hung a placard on the front.
It contained one word
