Candidates Qualify. Two candidates have already qualified to run in tbe primary of April 2, which may be held in caHe the Supreme Court holds the law valid. John A, Pitts Chairman of the Democratic Primary Board, states that two candidates for the Lower House of the Legislature tiled their applications with him last week to have their names on the bal lot. Mr. Pitts states that he expects a number of candidates for various offi ces to qualify this week by filing their Applications. No lee is required to qualify. The lees come later,' and are paid into the various executive committees. One interesting feature about the pri imary, in case it should be held, is that there would probably be thousands of rr tA Ittn cto runn inir rVi n frnitAro 1 Rfr ti in offices would not, of course, produce so many candidates. But for the Legisla ture, with 132 to bo elected, there would certainly be as many as 400 candidates from the two partie. Then for all the county offices in each county in the State there would be candidates from ach patty, which in itself would pro- duco not far front" 2,000 candidates Then aM the .county executive commit tees of each party, the Congressional District Committees, and delegates to the two party anventions to formulate platforms, theme would be literally more thousands of candidates. , U ruler the law each party would elect one dele gate tor each 100 votes cast in the last Presidential election. There would certainly he not less than 10,000 candidates for ofliee in the primary, and probably a good many juore. Nash ville American. Mra. Guy Tucker. Fulton, Ky. Feb. 17.

That a public buildings bill will bo introduced at this session of Congress and passed is the belief of a good many who had no ex pectation of such a thing earlier in the session. The change in this respect appears to have come about through the alarm of the Republican leaders over the danger of losing the next House of Representa tives. They are quite ready to adopt any expedient available to stem the drifting tide. Immense pressure has been brought to bear for a public build ings bill and as a result numerous bills have been introduced in the last few days by Republican members from close districts or from districts in which there promises to bo vigorous contests. Among the bills introduced was one by Sereno E. Payno Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and floor leader for the majority of the House. Mr. Payne does not introduce bills idly, It is expected that a flood of public buildings bills will at once be intro duced by members who have conio to realize there is a chance for such a measure, which, at first, they did not think was at all probable. Tetinesseo is some interested if there is to bo such a bill. .Representative Byrns has introduced two bills. One is appropriating -$600,000 for enlarging, extending and remodeling the custom house at Nashville and the other $5o"!00 for a building at Springfield, the site for which has already been provided. Representative Moon has asked for an appropriation of $50,000 for a build ing at Winchester. Representative Houston is aking for $10,000 addi tional for the public buildings at Mur freesboro and $ GO.OOO for the building at Shelbyville, the site for which has already been secured. He has intro duced bills also tor postofflce buildings at Tullahoma, Lewisburg and Fayette- ville, calling for appropriations of $65,- 000 each. Fall May Be Fatal.

Probably there h no more worried man in England to-day than King Edward, and no one who knows the situation in which be finds himself enn deny that he has ample cause for worry. Tilings have not bee going right with him at all and he is really in a most difficult position. To begin with, there is the result of the election. The king was veryiingry at the lords when they threw out the budget some months ago and so precip itated a constitutional crisis. Edward who is a ,very sensible man, has laid down for himself the rule that he must never betray in the slightest degree any predilection ho may have in secret for one or the other of the great English political parties. His theory is that he is king of the whole.English people and not of any faction. Fur that reason he has' always refrained sedulously from mixing in home politics, while ho has at the same time taken a keen interest and a very active part in foreign affairs, Now, however, it begins to look as he would have to take a hand in home affairs, and what displeases him most about this is that the country has given him no decided lead. The two great parties in the. State, excluding for the moment the Irish Nationalists and the Labor party, have come back just about equal. Edward would have preferred greatly to see either party in an over whelming majority. It would not have mattered to him which party won, so long as the preponderance was great enough, for then he could have taken the position that the people had shown him clearly what they wanted. The reason he is compelled to make the choice now is the fact that one of the great questions on which the elec- tion turned is the position of the house of lords and the final word in regard to its future rests with the king. Only he can effectively clip their wings, and he must-make -jhe choice within a few weeks. If Prime Minister Asquith de mands from him a guarantee that he will create enough new peers to swamp the present hquse and create a Liberal majority to make it commit suicide, and he refuses he will be faced at once with an outcry from all the Liberals and Radicals in the country and apparent ly they are about half the population that he is supporting the aristocracy and the landed and moneyed interests against the common people. If he does what Asquith asks then he will have to face an equally loud outcry from the other half of his people that he is sup porting the , party that would ruin the empire, against the sober sense and backbone of his kingdom. Was ever a poor king, .who wanted to remain pop ular and do the right thing by his peo pie, in1 such a fix? About the only way to prophesy what the king will do iri this extraordinary situation is to get on the insido of Lord Rosebery's mind, for I am told by one who is very close to the court that the monarch is becoming more and more under the influence of this brilliant man, who was once Liberal prime min ister of England, but who now belongs to no party. Lord Rosebery is essen tially a moderate man and his tendency in any situation of difficulty is to seek a compromise, rerhaps he may hnd a way by which the king may satisfy both parties. On the other hand, Lord Knollys, Edward's private secretary, is a man of whose prudence and judz ment ho thinks a great deal, and Lord Knollys is reputed to be an extremely Radical in politics, although, of course, he is barred by his position from taking an active part in political affairs. Then Edward has a number of other little worries. He is a great stickler for the dignity of the aristocracy and he is furiously angry at Lady Constant Stew ard Richardson for appearing as a clas 1 . M sieai uancer on the stage of a music hall. He is said to have declared that the spectacle of a woman of one of the oldest families in England "capering about before a crowd of canaille with nothing'on" was disgraceful. He even appealed to the Duchess of Sutherland, who is a kinswoman of Lady Constance, to induce her to give up the idea, but the duchess was unsuccessful. I am told that when he heard this he de- clared with great heat that Capt, Stew art Richardson, Lady Constance's bus band, ' must bo a damned ass." It would be bad enough if Lady Con stance were only an ordinary member of the aristocracy, but she has been a member of the intimate royal set, and at one time she was a great favorite with the king himself. I am told that even Mrs. George Keppel was nervous over the king's evident partiality for the so ciety of the younger woman. Perhaps Lady Constance would have secure! the po3ition of first favorite had she really wanted it, but she is a young and viva cious woman, who was really rather bored by the attentions of an elderly man, even though he was a king. ' ANOTHER LrTTLK WORRY. Another of the king's little worries is the position of his friend, Viscount Churchill, whose wife left him some months ago and who refuses to come back. Now Lord Churchill is the offi cial who has charge of the invitations to the royal enclosure at Ascot, and to many of the royal functions, and naturally he has made a good many enemies. , Lauicsto whom ho has been forced to refuse invitations, on account of their matrimonial irregularities, are losing no opportunity of gossipping about his -own marital troubles. The king was in hopes that Lord Churchill might patch matters up before the sea son opens, but there seems to be no sign of a reconciliation, and now Ed ward probably will have to find some one else to look after his invitation lists. Lord Churchill did it very well, and Ed ward dislikes change of all things. Then tharo is the little matter of his annual holiday abroad. He is going to Biarritz as usual in the spring, but all sorts of efforts are being made to in duce him to visit Cannes and Nice. He gave up going there in 1900 on account of the Frerach insults to the late Queen Victoria during the Boer war, and ndw that the entente cordiale with France has been established he doesn't like to hurt the French susceptibilities by re fusing to go, but he hates to change his routine. Another reason that he does not want to go to Cannes is that all his old friends who used to frequent the place are dead or gone away. Chief among these is the late Duchess of Manchester, who transferred her pat ronage to Biarritz when he did. Ma dame de Sagan, who was a great friend Offi cial Test iows 99.55 per cent pure.

Definite instruction concerning tl nature and methods, of prevention tuberculosis is being given to less thnl 6 per cent, of the public school childn of the United States according to a hw letin issued to-day by the National Asso ciation for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. .Recent investigation has shown that in only nine cities, Washington, D, C, Dallas, Tex. Richmond, Va., Fough keepsio, N. Y., Detroit, Mich., Maiden, Mass., Salem, Mass., Saginaw, Mich., and Knoxville, Tenn., are special text books being used or lectures being given about tuberculosis. In three States and one Territory, Michigan, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Porto Rico, laws have been passed requiring that instruc tion about the nature and methods of prevention of tuberculosis be given in all public schools. In Tennessee, the State Department of Education has re quested that such instruction be given, and has issued circulars for that pur pose. In New Jersey and West Vir ginia wall-cards giving instruction are hung in every schoolroom and the at tention of all children is called to them. The actual number of children, how ever, who will this year be taught by their teachers that tuberculosis is a com municable, infectious disease, and that it can be prevented, will not exceed one million. If the State laws requiring such instruction were strictly enforced, at least 2,000,000 children would be reached.
