TGI C. RYE SFEAKS HERE
UB3E AUDIEriGE PRESENT Reynolds Theatre Filled to Over flowing With Rain Falling. The reception tendered to Tom C. Rye in Union City Wednesday was very en thusiastic indeed. The candidate for -Governor waa met at the depot Wednes day night at Gibbs by Hon. D. P. Cald well, and escorted to Union City, xpn Wednesday he was received here by tbe Eye Campaign Committee and the Union City Rye Club, and after din ner, with the lead of Prof. Tate 'a Con cert Band, the crowd started from tbe hotel and marched to the theatre. The rain was falling and bad been falling in torrents all day apd night before. Notwithstanding the theatre, which seats 800 comfortably, was filled to overflowing. Tbe crowd was there fore estimated at 1,000 persons. Judge Jones adjourned court for the occasion, and the speaker was introduced by Hon. F. J. Smith, chairman of the Eye Democratic Club here, in the ab sence of Judge W. H. Swiggart, who was unavoidably called out of tbe city on legal matters. Judge Swiggart left a message that be will vote and support Mr. Rye for Governor and this brought forth applause. . Mr. Rye appreciated this in his re marks, but in referring to one of the newspapers here which bad been wob bly and was now running tne Demo cratic ticket he had been misled and misinformed by somebody. This paper has carried tbe Democratic nominees for Governor every campaign since the present management id 1901 has owned it, as well as tbe Democratic Presidential ticket. We are carrying that ticket now and have always carried it. We did not jpport the regular nominees in the ju dicial campaign Jour years ago, but voted a mixed ticket and when Patter eon was a-candidate for the nomination for second term we did all this paper could do to defeat him, but voted for and supported bim as a nominee. We have oo more remarks to make about Mr. Patterson. lie is a different man now, but our Democracy is not tinged with the Bryan bolt that has marked some of these fine gentlemen who are supercilious critics. It . is the Bryan Democracy that is revolutionizing the world to-day. It is the Democracy that Wilson adopted, that Roosevelt tried to appropriate, that La Follette is teaching and that the world is gradually learn ing, and we have never seen the day that we were ashamed of tbe Democratic nominee for President in 1896, in 1900 and in 1908. The Democracy of Tbe Commercial is no better but just as good as any other man's. Mr. Rye made a fine speech. He has a good speaking voice and magnificent delivery. His speech is too long. It would be all right for the Congressional record, but reduced to one-third the present size and filled with more of tbe orator's ability a? a speaker and thinker it would be a corker. He is one of the clearest beaded men on the stump we have heard for years. His speech is much the same as the one at Camden, which has been pub lished in all the daily papers. He spoke of the extravagauce of the present ad ministration and of tbe funding of the State debt by short term bonds at the rate of 7 per cent., when a bill was in troduced to refund them at a lower rate of interest, and was killed by the Gov ernor and his friends. He spoke of tbe sentiment for good roads and dwelt on our school system, criticizing Governor Hooper for standing in with the text book.publishers and de frauding the children of the State in the purchase of books. Mr. Rye favored tbe removal of of ficers who refused to enforce the tem perance and other laws, but very em phatically opposed putting the power of removal in the bands of the Governor, with which to make a Republican ma chine or any other kind of machine. This removal should be by impeach ment proceedings by the courts, or re call by the people.

He referred to Governor Hooper's criticism of his official record, and read from record showing that he bad con victed three-fourths or over of all the charges against bootlegging in his dis trict, saying: "I can no more help be; ing lazy thaa Governor Hooper can of bei modest and gentlemanly." : t the close of the speech Miss Mary Daunke, daughter of Geo.

Death of W. J. Moss. The death of one of the best known citizens of Williamson County, Tenn., William James Moss, aged 821 years, took place in Union City Friday after noon, Sept. 18, 1914, at 5:80 o'clock, at the home of Joe B. Moss, after an ill ness from decline of several weeks. Deceased was one of tbe oldest citi zens, born and reared in Williamson County, residing in the vicinity of Hills boro, now known as Leiper's Fork, re ceiving a liberal education in the schools, which offered limited advantages in bis bovhood.. Id maturer years Mr. Moss taught school and farmed. In 1853 he was united in marriage to Miss Susan Hughes, and of the union there were ten children, eight of whom survive as follows:.. Mrs. Mary Dabney, Franklin; Frank Moss, Franklin; H. P., C. T., and Joe B.. Union City; John W., Tuscumbia, Ala.;P. A., Memphis; Jas. B.. Union City. Mrs. Moss, the mother, died in July, 1876. In 1877 Mr. Moss married Mrs. . Lizzie Rogers, whose death took place in 1910. Mrs. Polk Davis became his third wife and death again intervened on May 19, 1914. A few years ago a bank was organized at Mr. Moss' home and he was one of the directors, but upon the death of the late Mrs. Moss, be closed out, sold bis farm, and came to Union City, where he has on many occasions visited his sons and their families. He was always welcome here and in variably called around to visit his friends, of whom we were glad to be remembered and share bis friendship. Mr. Moss was a member of the Christian Church at Hillsboro for 60 years, an elder of the church for 40 years. He was never con nected with public office, but was known as a man of affairs, as universally es teemed perhaps as any citizen of the county, assisting his neighbor and friends in the capacity of executor, ad ministrator, winding up many estates, large and small, and otherwise being useful to his fellowman. Mr. Moss a' ways took an interest in the moral up lift and welfare of bis community. His life and lips were clean,, his personality wholesome and pleasant. He was con sistent in- everything, loyal to his obli gations and a man of true worth. Tbe remains were shipped to Frank- jlin, and reached Hilhboro Sunday morning, accompanied by the sons from Union City. There an outpouring of the good citizens met them, and escorted them to the church. Services were conducted by Rev. J. E. Scoby and and burial took place at Parham Cemetery. Thus passes away a man of years and usefulness, whose departure leaves a broken community and a be reaved family, whose life is an honor to his years and a blessing to bis country. ROUTE FIVE.
