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.
- "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.
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.
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.
'.."The. are the facts mildly slated."

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

sword of political battle, go out imme

in the ninety-six counties of his State
in thirty days, and win the fight for
Democracy as Governor of the "Volun

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

self though, in this instance, the no
ble 'Tennessee Cincinnati), "' instead
of coming up from his plow in the field

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. John
A. Dix, our candidate for Governor, is
now looked upon as a certainty.

Weather Drives Crowd Indoors
Opera House Overflowed.
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 Senator was introduced by Hon.
F. J. Smith, who stated that he was
still loyal to the party of the South, the
grand old Democratic Ship of State.
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.-

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. It the ball of the shoe fits and
the instep does not, the foot slips forward and
pinches the toes, and overruns the soles, giving an
untidy appearance.
So first look for fit, then for style and wear. You
will find all of these qualities in the
American Lady
This shoe has long been recognized as
the "shoe 'that fits." Its styles are
authoritative and every possible ad
vantage gained by being the largest
purchasers of leather in the world,
as well as the largest manufact
urers of shoes in the world, has
been turned towards rnaking
a better shoe for the money
Come in and see the
new styles for Fall
and Winter, and let
us fit you in a shoe
that is suited to you.
We carry a large line of American Lady Shoes, in many styles, sizes,
shapes and leathers. ' - , '.-.. :

The Taylor badges were unanimous.
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.
