The columns of the nation's prepare full of Tennes see's political history. The great metro politan papers carry stories on "the bo.rsi.sm of Tennessee politicians." Be fore the election of November 8 lti was mostly speculation on the final outcome. Now it is tho great revolution that has taken place, the complete ousting of Pattersonism and the Patterson ma chine. ' The most recent article of note on this subject appears in Harper's Weekly, which conies out to the public to-d;iy. ; It is written by R. E. Pritchard, a for mer well known newspaper man of Chat tanooga. The article is entitled The Revolution in Tennessee." The writer gives an account of the Volunteer State's political happenings from 1905 wheii Jas. B. Frazier succeeded Wm. B. Bate in tho LTnited States Senate and John I. Cox succeeded Frazier as Governor; Mr. Pritchard shows 'how the Democratic resentment of tho red-handed bossism of Gov. Patterson at well as his arbt trary pardoning of the slayer of ex Senator Carmack enabled the Republi cans to carry the State." In a 5,000 word story he starts back with the death of Senator Bate and re counts all tho probable causes that brought on the ravolution that elected Capt. Hooper as Chief Executive of the State, and the grand climax of political events recently enacted. POLITICAL TRADITION'S BROKEN. In the opening paragraph of that ar ticle the w,riter says: "Tennessee has brokon the political traditions of the solid South. While the East and Middle West were regis tering their protests against the tariff and Roosevelt by giving Democratic majorities, it has elected Ben W. Hoop er, a young Republican, Governor. It was a revolution against bossism as represented by the present Governor, Patterson, and its lesson is that the peo ple of the State, though the majority of them are Democrats, will not stand any longer for dictation, even if they have to overthrow their own party." To this revolution the writer says the contributing causes have been the pro hibition question and the killing of for mer Senator Carmack. Speaking of Tennessee's political history, ho continues: "The political history of Tennessee for the past five years has been as dra matic as fiction, and to understand the conditions that have forced tho State into the Republican column it is neces sary to recall the conditions that have existed since the death of Gen. W. B. Bate, in March, 1905, just as he was entering upon his third term in the United States Senate." Taking up tho subsequent events in their chronological order, Mr. Pritchard outlined tho various causes that have brought about the wonderful changes in tho political scenes of this State. Then in plain, simple words, he peaks of the young man who came out of the West with a sword in one hand and a fire-brand in the other to cloud the political horizon, dwelling at some length on the wonderful joint de bate between Patterson and Senator Carmack. Speaking of the Guberna torial convention following Carmack 's feat for the nomination, he says: "disgraceful gathering. " "On May 29 of the same year the Gubernatorial convention met. The gathering was disgraceful. Pistols were drawn on the stage of the Ryman Au ditorium in Nashville, and there were fights almost without number. More than once murder was imminent. There were many contesting delegations, and though Cox seemed to be able to con trol the temporary organization, the results depended on the disputed votes. Disorder broke out as soon as the con vention was called to order by W. K. Abernathy, the acting State chairman, and the struggle came upon the selec tion of a temporary chairman. All went well until Davidson County (Nash ville) was. called. A Patterson sup porter tried to cast the vote, which was challenged on the ground of contest." ' Speaking of other events well known throughout Tennessee, Mr. Pritchard declares that "the doom of Patterson ism ia any form has been sealed." November election, he closes with the follow ing paragraph on the Governor- elect: '"Ben W. Hooper, the Governor-elect. ione of the youngest men to hold that office. His ago is not given definitely because, born in obscurity, his early days are clouded. Picked up on the streets of Knoxville, a waif and friend less, he was placed in an orphanage and and later adopted by Dr. L. W. Hooper, a wealthy citizen of Newport. lie served 'as an officer in tho Spanish American war, was 'a member of the Legislature and Assistant United States District Attorney. He is an able law yer, an earnest speaker, a .d a man w ho promises to make a business and non partisan Governor. " Work on Railroad. Tipf onville, Tenn., Nov. 28. The work of extending the Chicago, Mem phis and Gulf Railroad to Hickman, Ky., is being rapidly pushed forward. The track has been laid for several miles north of Tiptonville to a point near the State line. A large force of hands are at work north of the State line build ing the dump. If they can succeed in keeping ahead of the track layers so there will be no delay in the work, the road will soon be completed to Hick man. The three years that tire road has been in operation from Dyersburg to Tiptonville has demonstrated beyond question that the road is far more im portant than was ever anticipated. In order to handle the freight traffic this season, it has been necessary to put down a considerable lot of new track in the yards at Tiptonville. The town is almost alive with strangers of almost any nationality, either at work on the railroad or at the oil mill. This has been the most prosperous year for this country for many years. The cot ton crop is unusually good and is being sold for a good price. The weather is ideal for gathering the crop. There is a considerable amount of timber in Number Nine bottom, which will be put on the market as soon as the railroad is completed to Hickman. Protect your; 11 J' a. a ' f -SC roi ,f "PHILIP D.

The Correct vStationery for Christmas or Anytime Judge Taylor Improving. Lexington, Tenn., Nov. 23. This morning the condition of Judge John M. Taylor of the Court of Civil Ap peals, who sustained a stroke of paraly sis Saturday night about 7 o'clock at his home, shows decided improvement. He ate a hearty breakfast and was able to sit up for some timo, propped up in a large rocker. He enjoyed a smoke aftor the meal. The stroke came immediately after the Judge's arrival Saturday night from Nashville, where his court had been sitting. He alighted from the carriage at his gate apparently in his usual health, took his baggage into the house, greeted the family, and while seated talking about the local community hap penings suddenly complained of feeling queer sensations in his left side. An effort to lift his left arm and , lower limb revealed the helplessness of par alysis. Ho has partially recovered the use of the atllicted limb. It is confi dently believed his recovery will be speedy and complete. His court is expected to adjourn its Nashville session about Dec. 10 for the holidays, and it is thought that Judge Taylor will be able to resume his duties with that body when it convenes in Jackson early in January. , Throughout yesterday a constant stream of relatives, friends and neigh bors poured into the stately old Taylor home on Main street to pay their re spects to and express sympathy for the Judge. Special prayers were made in the churches of the town for his recov ery, and in the Methodist Sunday School, of which he is superintendent, more affectionate reference was made to him. His son, Judge Wm. M. Tay lor, of Blytheville, Ark., reached his bedside yesterday afternoon, and left to day for Nashville to discharge the Judge's court duties in his State.

Lewis M. Coleman, counsel for J. W. Kelly fc Co., in the caso involving the right to manufacture whisky in Tennes see in which the Supreme Court held the prohibition manufacturers' bill con stitutional, stated to-day that the case would bo appealed to the United States Supreme Court. He declared that the decision involves a federal question as to property rights. At the timo of the hearing before Judge Mcllcynolds, the attorneys for tho liquor firm raised the question of equal rights to all citizens, holding that the declaring of the manu facturers' law constitutional would mean the confiscation of the property of the distillers and declaring that the law was not only in violation of the constitution of the State of Tennessee, but of the United States as well. 2 Guns, 2 Negroes, 2 Coffins.
