(Monroe) Go! Jon announces this week for re-election to the office of Clerk of the Circuit Court of Obion Couuty, Sir. Golden has served the county for one term as Clerk and asks for an indorsement for second term upon the merits of stewardship and official record in the eifice. He has been a resident of the county for many years, connected with public affairs and served aa Deputy County Clerk with the highest degree of efficiency and official capacity. He served the county for a number of years in this- way until lie felt that he was thoroughly capable and qualified to ask for an office at the bands of the people. Now be simply asks in dorsement for a second term, and de serves and is entitled to your kindest consideration, , Blonroe Golden is one of our very best officers and citizens, and if elected will continue to bring to bear those qualifications that have made him one of the strongest and best men in county office.

While their quarrel continued in the midst of the hot season human lives were forfeited. The general public cares very little one way or the other as to the merits of a strike, but the public cares a great deal about the general welfare of the community. While the provisions of the Kew Zea land law are compulsory after registra tion no labor union is obliged to regis ter, but oace registered it has no option. It must submit to arbitration. Employ ers are placed on the same footing. In case of dispute either party to it must call upon the board of conciliation formed for that purpose. If the con ciliators cannot settle the dispute the question is referred to the arbitration court without delay. The judgment of that court may be enforced by fines levied on individual employers or em ployes or their organizations or by im prisonment of officers or members who may be guilty of contempt of that court. This seems to be the most sensible We offer I way of settling all labor differences with perfect fairness to both sides. Com- : mercial Appeal, , ! Chas. Williams Frank W. Adams 5 Rise of Democracy. The clearing-house banks of Tennes oe are to have a share in the millions the treasury will deposit in the Southern banks to facilitate the movement of prrinn" Thia ia aim hi fh ftviripm-os that the Democratic administration is trying to carry out its pledges to the people. The Republican administra tions as far as we can remember have persistently refused this help. It was an interlocked system of the Treasury Department, preferred New York City banks and the cotton and stock ex changes. These agencies controlled and withheld from the South especially the money that should have been in use to move cotton and other products to market. It was the means by which prices were depressed and it was done effectually. It was a much more po tential influence than the formation of pools to depress quotations. The Gov crnmcnt and the Republican party were behind it. Speaking a short time ago about the effect of the Wall street movement on markets we did not aim to infer the existence of local combinations. Local combinations are not necessary to fur ther the schemes of these big interests. They do not need the assistance of local combination. They bave perfected a machine that works without it. The name of the local dealer is often linked with combination influences. He may be in sympathy with them, but he is not a factor. The principal cause of the deflection in prices at market time is the fact that the crons are rushed to market without money enough to move them. The local dealer has no part in withholding this money. The Treasury Department and the big banks in collusion with Wall street are alone responsible, and the Re publican tytrty ha8 fostered this condi tion of things. The farmers could have protected themselves by storing tbeir cotton and grain in private warehouses of their own, but they refused to go -to the expense and trouble, and the result was that they .-submitted from year to year to the Wall .street manipulations. . But now comes the Democratic -administration proposing to give the pro- ducors a square deal. The Administra tion proposes that the South shall bave some of the money that it takes to move crops, that market prices shall be sus tained so far as lies in the power of the Government and the producer as well as the banker protected. This is what the Administration pro poses to do, and it is one of the first signs of the restoration of genuine Democratic principles. Speed the Administration" and its work. It is on the right road.

Ridings informs us that from the present prospects there will be very little trouble in conforming to the compulsory school law. So far the dis tricts whose schools are opened have practically observed the law without pressure. This seems to bo an indica tion that the people are beginning as they bave never done before to recog nize the valua of education, and it speaks vo'uraea foil the good couuty of Obion, which is advancing in the work. Soon we are. to establish three high schools and this will be another nop in the march of educational advantages.

This seems a sensible solution, for after all it is the general public which is made to suffer. This was shown in the recent ice strike in Cincinnati. The health of the entire comniuuiiy was threatened, babies suffered, the sick were made sicker, all because the ice manufacturers and their employes could not agree as to the Question of salary. The city authorities were justified in given an opportunity to make a short address of five or ten minutes along the line of camp-fire and battle stories.
