Democratic Ticket. for Con Kress, FINJS J. GARRETT, of Weakley. SUte Senator, F. J. CALDWELL, of Lake. Floater. S. F. HOWARD, of Obion. Representative, E. N. MOORE. Justice Harlan. ' It in likely that Associate Justice liar lan will be appointed to succeed Chief Justice Fuller as Chief Justice of the United States Supremo Court. Justice Harlan and Chief Justice Fuller were very warm friends and companions. They were almost inseparable. It there fore goes to show that Justico Harlan is a man of great character. But aside from this fact Justice Harlan has handed down some of the most important de cisions that have come from the Su preme Court. It is possible that Justice Harlan is the brainiest man in the Unit ed States. Certain it is that ho suffers by comparison with no men in public life. If we were called upon to enum erate the men of his rank mentally we should recall Thus. B. Reed, Grover Cleveland and men of that type. We have few of such mentalities to-day. It is said that Reed's relation to tho mem bers of Congress was like the big school master and a house full of small boys. He seldom had a tilt that ho did not unmercifully flay his opponent. Reed said himself that only one man appeared in the House during his tenure worthy of his metal and that man was George Crisp of Georgia. Mr. Crisp was at one time Speaker of the House of Repre sentatives. With all the criticism that has been cast at the name of Cleveland no man lias ever presumed to question his intel ligence. His was one of tho great minds of America. And contempora neous with these men is Justice Harlan, who has outlived either, of tho broad est, best and purest typo of statesman ship. Justico Harlan is one of tho most popular men personally and one of the best exponents of law. He is esteemed by law students as an incomparable lec turer. His is one of the minds which molds thoughts for other men. He is taller in character than tho influence of all the corporate wealth and bigger in brain than all its ingenuity. Justice Harlan is comparatively old, but of all men he should succeed his late bosom friend, Chief Justice Fuller. The Unit ed States Supremo Court would be hon ored by his selection as it was honored by such men as Marshall, Waite and Storey. mains prevent an extension of the work to many of the citizens this year, but will provide for the worst features of sewerage sanitation. It has been suggested that arrange ments could le made for an extension of the entire system in one contract w ith practically the same demands upon the treasury and the same cost. However this may be, we are sure that the Board of Mayor and Aldermen will let no op portunity pass to give the city the best results to be obtainable from all the plans that have been proposed. In any event Union City is to have a complete system of sewerage within two years, which reduces the time limit one year from the first plan, aDd that, if nothing interferes, will be more than anj' citizen had ever hoped to see in the near future. Mayor Coble and the Board have undertaken a great work, and they are giving it time and attention. .They are giving to the city probably more service than has ever been devoted to municipal work heretofore in Uuion City, and the citizens should lend all the co-operation possible. Don't pull back and criticise the work, but lend your en couragement and help. The work is for your benefit and the benefit of all the citizens. It is for your health and the health of your neighbor. It is, as well as a convenience, a means to prevent the spread of disease and therefore an im portant and valuable work for every man, woman and child in Union City. Tho sewerage will be not only of the greatest value from a point of sanitation and convenience, but it will lead to civic pride. It will give an impetus to the beautifying of our homes, our lawns and our premises. While all this is in prog ress, Union City, with tho best schools ind churches and the best drinking wa ter to bo found, will be gaining in pop ulation at a rate now unthought of. Sewerage will bring immeasurable bene fits in every way, and the city is indeed to be congratulated in this movement. NEEDFUL KNOW LEDGE.

Tho work of Union City's sewerage system begins this week. The start is being made at a point south of town where the septic; tank is to be placed, beginning with the 15-inch pipe. The big steam trenching machine is being used for the ditch work. This machine plows up the dirt and dumps it over on the side of the ditch with a rapidity that is remarkable. Tho machine was last used at Atlanta, Ga., and shipped here from that city. Mr. Jcnks, the engi neer.is here directing the work, and from all wo can gather this gentleman and thecontractois are all of the most reli able character, well known in their line of business and well prepared to handle anything of the kind from the smallest to the largest contract. Tho work will proceed, including the septic tank, from now on, and wo are informed that sew erage pipe will bo laid northward both on Depot and Second streets, on both sides of town. It was at first intended to confine tho work this year to tho lino running to Depot and Harrison streets and continuing on the east side of town, but the plans are now arranged to run the Second street line, coming through the business part of town in the alley to the rear of Second street and continuing to Burdick's fishery. This is to bedotie in "order to mako provision for carrying off the refuse from the fishery and to accommodate tho business men with more closet facilities. It is also under stood that this portion of the work as well as the work reaching Main street will be finished this year. This, of course, is tho first installment of the contract and takes caref only a small per centage of the citizens. Tho build ing of the tank and the laying of tho Tho delegates appointed to attend the State convention to be held in Nashville Sept. 14, are urged, if possible, all of them, to be present. The rate will be one fare for the round trip plus 25 cents, and it is a season when a greater ma jority of the people can leave home and their business for tho purpose of attend ing a convention. Get together, gentle men, and let Obion County have a large delegation at Nashvillo Sept. 14. It is now probablo that Hon. Rice A. Pierce will enter tho field for Congress against Mr. Garrett, and talk of other candidates has been indulged in. The Republican candidate, Mr, Brown, was hero Monday, his interests having in creased by virtue of the fact that the race may bo complicated with new en tries. In the meanwhile we see no im mediate cause for alarm with respect to Mr. Garrett's chances. He is tho nom inee of tho Democratic primary, and ono of tho strongest men the Ninth Con gressional District has ever had in Congress. Democratic Executive Committee, The Democratic Executive, Commit tee of Obion County met at the court house in Union City last Monday after noon at 1 o'clock and the newly elected comniitleo was organized with the elec tion of P. D. Honibeak as chairman and E. J. Green secretary. D. P. Caldwell was elected member of the Senatorial committee from Obion County and T. J. Bonner member of the Floterial committee from Obion County. i. i. jtornoeaK was elected member of tho Judicial committee from Obion County. Members of tho committee present were as follows: J. F. Swiggart, J. D. Jones, J. F. Kersey, W. G. Petty, P. D. Hornbcak, C. P. Wilson, H. H. Hunt, J. M. Fos ter, C. G. Barker, Luke Latimer, J. D. Gore, J. M. Moores, W. P. Davis, J. J. Wells, E. J. Green, Dr. N. G. Morris. Casey Hollonian was the only member absent. Tho following resolution indorsing Hon. Finis J. Garrett for Congress was passed by a majority of all the mem bers but one present: Bo it Resolved, That we, the Demo cratic Executive Committee of Obion County, indorse the course of the Hon. Finis J. Garrett during his incumbency as a member of Congress from the Ninth Congressional District of Tennessee and that we further indorse his candidacy forte-election as the regular nominee of the Democratic party. ' In a speech in tho interest of the re nomination of Senator La Follette, de livered at Milwaukee, Gifford Pinchot, former forester, hailed the Wisconsin solon as the pioneer in the progressive movement, and as 'the first hian to sug gest a practical solution of the water power problem. This very important item in reference to the hog and sheep department was included in a query made by Mr McNeill, of Rives, last week. Mr. Mc Neill sent us this for publication, and in attempting to answer through the paper we concluded that we were not well enough posted to do so. This week we asked for further instructions and now endeavor to make the matter plain air. jMcJNeill wanted to know ir lie was not right with regard to the grand cham pionships mentioned on page 2!) of the fair catalog in the assumption that the entries for grand championship premi ums must bo pigs that have won premi ums in the champion classes at the same fair. After talking with Mr. Far ris and Mr. Wade we are instructed to say to Mr. McNeill and to others who have hogs to enter that in order to win a grand championship premium the ex hibitor must have won either one of the premiums in the championship classes, and under that ruling there must of ne cessity be only two entries for each of the silver cups or medals. The grand champion boar contest must be decided betwoen the winners of the two chain pionship premiums, one for best boar one year old and over and one for best boar under one year old. The grand cham pion sow contest must be decided in the same manner. Mr. McNeill states that this matter has heretofore been misun derstood, and that it was his purpose to have tho matter adjusted, so that there would be no further confusion. There have been exceptions, liowever, where the ruling was not plain. For instance, Mr. Russwurm entered for grand championship premiums hogs that had not been entered in the cham pionship classes. He did not enter in the championship classes because- he appointed the judges and was therefore ineligible to these classes. Yet ho was admitted to the grand championship contest. Such a condition is not likely to exist, but in order to make the mat ter clear the association has decided that entries must be made in both classes to win the grand champion premiums. i lie Building season NOW ON We have every sort of building and finishing lumber f you're apt to need, including FRAMING, FLOORING, CEILING, SIDING Doors and Windows, Shingles A visit to our yards will be appreciated.
