Governor Hooper's second section of legislative special sessions convenes next Monday, October 13. Law enforcement bills, a nuisance bill and an anti-shipping bill will be considered. A ma jority of the members are pledged to support these measures, the people heartily favor them and a largo number of the so-called regular Democrats en dorse them. The list includes such prominent men as Whittaker, Gholson, Patterson and Preston. Mayor Crump, of Memphis, opposes. In his position Mr. Crump has the unstinted assistance of Speaker Stanton and Senator Luke Lea. The question: Will the Mayor and his man, the Speaker, be able to again thwart the will of the voters and defeat the wishes of the mothers of the entire State? The light has dawned in Nashville, Chattanooga has seen a gleam or two, Jackson and Knoxville are in line. All eyes are turned, toward Mem phis. The special Memphis session of the legislature opens Monday and in loss than sixty days the big boss of the white apron bunch down on the bluff may hear something drop. Stranger things have happeuod. their efforts to pass law enforcement measures at the recent session of the Legislature. "Resolved, That we favor an act to define more specifically the abatement of public nuisances, or any kind, of business prohibited by law. We favor an act to brohibit the shipment of liquor i".to the State or shipment from one county to another. We favor an act to empower proper courts to remove county and municipal officers for fail inn to perform their official duty. We beg of our member of the Senate, lion R. A. Elkins. and House members Hons. G. R. McDado and J. L. Cocb ran, to support these measures men tioned here, believing it will restore peace and harmony in Tennessee and place the Democratic party in power in State affairs" TENNESSEE PRESS. Jr M Citizens Hold Meeting. Several hundred voters assembled in mass convention at the courthouse in this city last Monday afternoon. Prom inent speakers were tn attendance and made ringing speeches condemning the reckless, lawless conditions in Tennes see, especially in some of the larger cities. Hon. F. J. Smith was elected chairman and J. M. Brice acted as secre tary. Upon motion, W. II. Swiggart, 8. R. Bratton, D. P. Caldwell, J. Brice, C. P. Wilson and J. L. Fry were appointed a committee on resolu tions, and in a very short time reported as follows and the same was enthusi cally and unanimously adopted: "Whereas, The State of Tennessee, through the Democratic party, has al ways been advancing to a prohibition State, the issue has como to be that of law enforcement, the question being whether the State shall triumph over the outlawed liquor traffic in the larger cities and uphold the supremacy of law and order. We condemn the past ac tion and conduct of Speaker Stanton in refusing to allow a majority of the House of Representatives to speak or vote in behalf of the law enforcement measure before the House of Represen tatives. We believe such action is trea son to the dignity of the State of Ten nessee. An impeachment proceeding is the only safe and sane course for law enforcement members to proceed with for protection of the State and people's rights against liquor, where at this par ticular time all the State's eyes are up on Tennessee and ber officials in legis lative capacity over this vital issue. "Resolved, That we, the citizens of Obion County assembled in mass meet- enJorse the action of members of Legislature, assisted by our own Representatives, Hons. G. R. McDade, J L. Cochran and R. A. Elkins, in ing, the No political party in Tennessee and no faction of a political party has ever dared to go before the people upon J platform of nullification of the law And none ever will. There should be no politics in the coming extra session of the legislature. Men should act and vote as Tennesseans who believe in the uiajebty of the Stale and the supremacy of the law. In that alone is there hope for protection for either life or property, Columbia Herald. Taking the regular and extra sessions altogether and considering the fact that Tennessee has secured a law for com pulsory education, admirable labor laws, has done away with the flood of local bills, has substituted electrocution for hanging as a capital punishment and has refunded the State debt, temporari ly, the old Volunteer State is not so far behind after all. Chattanooga News. We hope tho members of the General Assembly will respond to this call and reconvene themselves and give the peo ple the protection they are demanding. To do this they must rid themselves of the liquor domination and boss rule. They must represent their constituents instead of the liquor interests. Governor Hooper by his call has given them an opportunity to prove themselves above petty politics and the rule of bosses. Will they do it? We believe they will. Marshall Gazette. Think of it; Nashvillo is to be a dry town. Judge Neil has ordered that all of the saloons' in our fair capital city shall close and remain closed on and after Oct. 1. If the four-mile law can be invoked in the other cities Of the St8te good old Tennessee can hope to wear the fair complexion that she nat urally possesses, but which' has been smeared with so much filth and blood that it looked horrible. The situation looks hopeful. Maryville Enterprise. A Great Institution in Danger. Calling attention to the tremendous possible scope of the Teabody College if the additional fund of $200,000 is raised, the Memphis Commercial Ap peal aditorially calls on the. fifteen trus tees of the University of Nashville to turn ovei funds in their care to Pea body. This editorial will be of interest, coming, as it does, from an outside and disinterested source. The article fol lows: ' "An educational institution of tre mendous possibilities and of great power in the South is about to be lost because of the failure to secure the remainder of an endowment. v "Two years ago the Peabody Board of Trustees offered to settle upon the Peabody College for Teachers in Nash ville $500,000 conditional "upon the trustees raising f 1,000,000. The time for closing the fund is November 1 of this year.- "The Board of Trustees has secured upward of $S00,000, and there the members seem to be at the end of their road. Much of this money was given upon a condition that the million be secured. , "We are informed that fifteen citizens of Nashville hold in trust the funds of of a school which was part of the Uni versity of Nashville, but has not been given to Peabody College, as were all other properties of this university. "This school is doing a work which can be better or as well done by the public schools of the city of Nashville. If this endowment was turned over the total $1,000,000 would be secured,. "The fame of this small school would be added to it if it were merged into the great institution. It would share in this institution's splendid service to the southern people. , "It would be supremely wise and patriotic if these trustees would turn over this fund to Peabody College. The institution then could avail itself of the half million offered and the work of rounding out a headpiece for public edu cation in the South could begin. "The Peabody College and the insti tution from which it sprang have done great work, but methods and schemes of education change with time. To lie como adequate to the demands of future public education an institution such as contemplated by the ollicers of the ka body College is necessary. 'While this great school is to be lo cated at Nashville, its work is so broad that it would be of benefit to Memphis to West Tennessee, to Mississippi, to Arkansas and the whole South. "The Commercial Appeal hopes that those who have the power to make the institution permanent will not permit it to fail because of any false view no matter if it is honest as to the things which should be done." COUNTY COURT BACKS UP Wipes County High School Propo sition Clean Off the Slate. The resolution reproduced below is simple, clear cut, plain, and explains itself. It takes the county high school proposition and hangs it on the peg where Superintendent Ridings found it some months ago. It was adopted, the vote standing 82 for and 7 against: "Whereas, At the Juty term of this Court, 1013, a ceiUiu order, was tuade and passed which is of record in Book G, County Minutes, page 118, and which said order is in words and figures as fol lows, to-wit: " " 'Ordered by the Court that a tax of ten cents per hundred dollars be and the same is hereby levied for county high schools for the year 1913;' and "Whereas, This Court is of opinion that said order -should be withdrawn, cancelled, repealed, annulled, set aside, and for nothing further held; "Therefore, Be and it is hereby or dered by this Court that said order above set out and creating and imposing said evy of ten cents on the hundred dol- ars for county high schools for the year 1913 be and the .same is hereby with drawn, cancelled,- repealed, annulled, set aside and for nothing further held; and it is further ordered by this Court that the County Trustee for Obion County will not collect said levy im posed by said order from any taxpay ers in the county, or on any taxable property herein. " The resolution also goes on and abol ishes and repeals the office or position known as County High School Board, the members of same being Robert Morris, Carroll P. Wilson, George F. Botts, W. L. Willingham, Alex Wells and J. I. Caldwell. Chas. Williams Frank W. Adams Bought Milling Plant. J. A. Coble, receiver, last Saturday sold at public auction the property known as the Hardy Mill, Col. Walter Howell, president of the Old National, being the successful bidder. The prop erty transferred consists of the large two-story brick building, two or three warehouses, office building, engines, shellers, milling machinery, etc Mr. Howell has not perfected his plans and is not ready to make a statement in re gard to handling this new purchase, but at once a force of men were put to work cleaning the building and machin ery. It is a valuable and expensive pieco of property and it is safe to say will not be allowed to remain idle very long. , Notice. Union City Lodge F. & A. M. will meet Oct. 15 at 2 p. m. for work.
