Both Sides in Tennessee Predict Majority Next Tuesday. ' Nashville, Tenn.', Oct. 00. "I have been campaigning in Tciuu'i-oe since 1.SN4, and have made .fourteen to six teen campaign tours of this State in time, when party enthusiasm was run high, but never beforo liave I wen in West Tennes-ec such determination ami such enthusiasm on the part of tin; Democrats as I have seen this year. " Thus spoke Senator Hubert L. Taylor this morning in the course of a brief , rest between the en J of the second week and the commencement of the third , week of his whirlwind campaign. " "In the best days of Democracy in this State, when the party was solid and when the Democratic speaker brought out the full strength of It in party at every appointment, 'I never got such crowds as I have seen tin's week. I have made from six to nine speeches per day, and since leaving Memphis last Mon- ' day I have talked to forty-eight audi ences, every one of them as largo as the si.e. of the community would justi fy. My observation teaches me that wo will carry every West Tennessee county that the Democrats are ascuRtomed to carry, and with the usual majorities, "Gibson and Weakley are the only two counties as to which I feel any alarm as to the size of the majorities, and in loth of them we feel the Dem ocrats alert,, determined and hopeful. Since making this trip I am satisfied of ultimata victory. If the vote of the State were taken to-day and we had an absolutely fair count we would carry the State by a good majority. I'KOSl'KCTS WRKUITES KACIi PAY. - "The prospects will lc improved dur ing the coming week, for the Demo cratic tide is now rising, while the Re publican strength is receding. " ' Senator Taylor in every speech made last week, has repeated the estimate of bis majority at 20,000, and on arrival at headquarters here in Nashville lie finds his estimate verified by the close calculation of W. (). Vertrees, chair man of the State; Democratic Executive Committee. . ; '". . Maj. Vertrees was chairman of the independent campaign in August, and ... those who were then associated with him ktKw how conservative is he in the 'matter of giving out campaign esti mates. They know also how quickly lie gathers U'a figures and calculations. J!e says the Republican 'majority iu ' East Tennessee will "not exceed 20,000 the Campaign party which lias just traversed West Tennessee knows how easily this majority can be overcome The large counties of Shelby, Davidson Knox and Hamilton will do it aTondi, leaving the majorities of other eoun ties for good measure. ' i , ' ; ' : Secretary Johnson of the Dcmoeratir committee has just given an interview m which he,-of course, claims a vie tory, but it is significant that be. bases it on the assumption that there were 95,000 . independent votes cast in the August election and that not more than 10 per cent of them will go with the Democratic ticket in November. " ST AT KM K NT HASKD ON KAOTS. As a matter of fact, W. O. Vertrees and Gen. Harvey Hannah, who know more aoout tne muepenuent ,vote in August than any other living men, place that independent vote in August at 30.000.. and thev say, and all who have been making the rounds with Sen ator Taylor know that far more than half that vote will go for Taylor in No vember. Accepting these facts as the basis of calculation, it is apparent that the fusiomsts are beaten right now. 3 Hie Democratic campaign started out with thirty-two newspapers in Tennes see favorable to Robert L. Taylor. To day the headquarters are sending litera ture to sixty-seven newspapers that are publishing news favorable to Taylor. SKCHKTARY JOIINKOX.. , At the fusion headquarters the follow ing statement is made: - ,. "There is no doubt of the election of Capt. Hooper and Col. Enloe, and this is virtually conceded by every one hav ing knowledge of conditions it this State, except those whose oflieial po sition requires them to perform the functions of a "whistler" to keep up the courage of the disheartened forces of the machine, in order that there may not do a complete ana mini col lapse. . ... . "There were from eighty-live thou sand to ninety thousand Democrats who voted the free judiciary ticket in August and not more than ten per cent of these will ever, under any circumstances, sup port Senator Taylor for Governor. "There was never a more determined lodv of men in any State than that majority of the Democracy of. Tennes sec who are going to vote the fusion ticket for their nominees for Governor and Railroad Commissioner. "Wo will undoubtedly carry East Ten nessee' and West Tennessee by practi cally the same majority as iu the August election, and in Middle Tennessee there will not be any perceptible change.

A Unite J States Senator, with two more years to serve, responding to a unanimous call of his party, to lay aside the toga of his exalted and digni fied office in Washington, and take the sword of political battle, go out imme diately on the hustings, make speeches in the ninety-six counties of his State in thirty days, and win the fight for Democracy as Governor of the "Volun teer State!'! , This is the recent patriotic, magnani mous act of the beloved "Rob"Tavlor, I of Tennessee the "Apostle of Sun ! shine," the "Idol of the People." It I shows a loyalty to his party and a love for his people which is unprecedented m poiuics. . it is mstory. repeating it self though, in this instance, the no ble 'Tennessee Cincinnati), "' instead of coming up from his plow in the field to lead the forces, js coming down out of his seat in the greatest legislative body in the world. " The Democrats of Tennessee have held four memorable conventions this year Iu May the ''Insurgents" determined to prevent the encroach ifient by the Chief Exective of the State upon the Judicial Department, met at Nashville, and put out a ticket of "Independent candidates for Supreme Court Justices to be elected in August. . In June, a "machine"-conlrolled con vention also nominated judicial caudi and renominated the present Governor to run in the November election. The "Insurgent" judges won by a tremendous majority in August, . So determined were the "Insurgents" (all of thefn Democrats) to make a clean sweep of the present State A dministra tion, that, at another convention called in September, these Dcnux'rats endorsed the Republican nominee for Governor and a fusion candidate for Railroad Commissioner, rtcrtwitlrstanding thtf'Iact that Governor Patterson had withdrawn from the race the day before, and there was then no Democratic candidate in the field. ' " In consequence, the young Republi can candidate (never beforo among the leaders of his own party, and absolute ly unknown over the State) began can vassing with his Democratic running mate. Roth having the "insurgent" Democratic endorsement, and neither having 'opposition, fheymade things rather turbulent for a time in Tennes see. - A . The withdrawal of Patterson elimi nated, the cause of party discord and factionalism, as late as it was, and grat fied the great mass of Democracy throughout the State. Personal feeling began to subside, and political wounds to heal. ' Immediately, the leaders' set to work to harmonize their differences and reorganize the party. Tennesse, the barrier State to Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas, with more neighbors to be affected by her action than any other State in the. Union, has looked to the Democratic party for protection, preservation and progress for generations past. She coulC not quietly succumb to the pall of Republicanism a party whose princi pies and practices nave ever been a menace to the South, and aro now proving likewise to the entire country. On October fi, an old-time Democrat convention,' a typical "love feast" and "homo-coming" was held at Nash ville when personal foes and political factions were forgotten ;in the great fighl against the "common enemy." Only one name was, on the lips of every delegate, anu that name is a household word -synonym for "Hap piness" in every nook and corner of the "Volunteer State" from Mississippi to the mountains. Leaders," workers, voters all hurried to headquarters to vouchsafe their active aid and support. Senator Taylor could. Hot n!l toe united call of his party and the sincere appeal of his people. lie is willing to give up his seat in the United Stales Senate, the goal of his life's ambition and be the Governor of Tennesseo for the third time, under the conditions prevailing in Tennessee., ; ' .'.With the joy, the confidence, the en thusiasm and the determination that has ever characterized his clean personal life and his innumerable -political cam paigns, this "War-horse of Democ racy" is leading the forces in Tennessee to victory. He sounded the key-note in hisspoiH-h of acceptance, and staled the real, genuine issue of the campaign in the first sentence he uttered to the convention.. "I am an old-fahioiud Democrat from 'way up at the head of the creek." ,. Chairman Norman E. Mack of the Democratic National Committee, thus endorses the candidacy of Senator Tay lor in a letter to Chairrnaiv Vertrees of the Democratic State Committee of Ten nessee: . . Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 13, 1010." Hon. W. O. Vertrees, Chairman Dem ocratic State Committee, Rooms 0-7, Maxwell House, Nashville, Teen.: Dear Mr: I am highly gratified to learn of -the nomination of United States Senator Rolwrt I.. Taylor by the regu lar Democrats of Tennessee as their standard bearer in the present campaign : It, is unnecessary for me to say that it is the duty of every' Democrat of the State of Tennessee to give Senator Tay lor his cordial, undivided and enthusi astic support in the contest which is now going on between a Republican nomi nated for Governor by a Republican convention and your distinguished Sen ator nominated for Governor by the regular Democrats of Tennessee. The Democrats of your State must not be misled by any false issues but should' stand 'as a solid phalanx and make certain the elecfion pf a Democcat as against a Republican irMhis contest. . The Democrats and the people of Tennessee are certainly to be congrat ulated on the acceptance by Senator Taylor of this nomination and I can see no reason why every man calling him self a Democrat should not rally to the support of the regular Democratic nomi nee for Governor. 7 . My interest in Senator Taylor's can didacy for Governor of Tennessee on the regular Democratic ticket, is, of course (aside from my personal friend ship jind admiration for Senator Taylor as a man and a Democrat) for the effect that lus election will have on the Na tional Democratic situation. ' " " I have, the honor to be tin; official head of the Democratic, party in the Nation and naturally I want to see our party successful in this election in. Ten nessee as. well as in the other States and Territories throughout the Union. This important election of 1010 is the forerunner of the great national contest of 1012, and if our party is successful in the present election in Tennessee it means much to the party in general in the election of 1012. I, therefore, in my capacity, as Chairman of the Dem ocratic National Committee apjieal to all Tennessee ' Democrats to support Senator Taylor and the regular Demo cratic nominees in the election of No vember 8. .Tennessee is a Democratic State and its - failure- to.' uphold the Democratic standard in this campaign would be re garded as ai body blow to the National Democracy aiid would be so proclaimed by the Republican party, now so stren uously at work to get a foothold in the ' Solid South, : ' I send greetings to the Democracy of Tennessee from my own, the Empire State, where the election of Hon.

With announcement to speak in Union City Thursday, Oct. 27, at 2 o'clock p. m. Senator Taylor and party arrived on special train at noon. A largo crowd was present, at the union station to meet the Senator, including the Union City Cornet Rand and a large number of ex- Confederato soldiers.. Of the number one of the soldiers carried a tattered Confederate flag. After dinner at the Palace Hotel Senator Taylor was escort ed to Reynolds Opera House, the weath er being too disagreeable 4o speak out doors. ". . '' '. ' " ' .

The opera house was crowded, pit to dome and stage, and numbers left for the reason that they could not see the speaker. It is estimated that there were at least 1,200 people in the building.- first hi .AlA4 ii; -vvC -ii fC.i : MY 91 When you buy a shoe, your consideration should be the fit. If a shoe does not fit you it will hurt youf feet and will wear out quicker. A shoe should fit the foot at. every point of contact.

The Senator's speech was along the same lines heretofore delivered at differ ent points. He declared for the en forcement of all the laws. He invited everybody to come and see him when he was inaugurated. Senator Taylor referred to Reelfoot Iake and stated that he was for an open Jake, that everybody might enjoy unrestricted the hunting and fishing rights and that peace and tranquility might prevail in the community. - : Senator Taylor made a plea to. the Rrownlow followers by eulogizing Con gressman Brownlow. He paid his spe cial respects r to Messrs. Sanders and Evans, saying that this scheme of dig ging up Hooper was gotten up in Wash ington to take Tennessee out of the solid South, and that Evans and Sandein had hatched it up. He then discussed 'the' record of B. W. Horrper as heretofore and also paid especial attention to Col. '; Enloe. - -- . : ",-' - - , .'. ' i At the conclusion of his remarks he was presented with two beautiful bou quets, one by Miss Lucilo Morris and tho other by Miss Mary Dahnke. DcLong Rice, who had just anno to the special'train, as he stated, was then introduced by F. J. Smith. Mr. Rice had but little time, as it was about train time, and his address was short. The Nashville papers made a great ado. about some negroes on the stage. Theso negroes were stage hands, em ployed for the .occasion, and while Ui speaking was going on slippl through the wings and stood behind those sitting on the stage with the speakers to hear Senator Taylor. The negroes were not invited to the stage at all and were, in no wise, expected to be a part or parcel of the audience; Nobody undertook to dismiss them, nor was there any oeca sion for being unduly exercised on a count of their presence. Under similar circumstances no Hooricr audience would have undertaken to drive the negroes away. It was all a campaign' fake; a yellow journal scoop.
