ENLOL CHILES JOE ROGERS . DAN LNN A. B. COBLE LEGISLATOR RESIGNS. Would Not Accept Commission With Any Suspicion. Chattanooga, Tenn., Dec. 18. Im mediately following the action of the Supreme Court to-day in deciding that the MeGill-Levine legislative election controversy was an election contest and not within the jurisdiction of the Chan cery Court, J. L. Levine, whose elec tion as Representative is attacked by John McOill, sprung a surprise by an nouncing his intention of resigning the office. According to local attorney, the result is that it in within the province of the Governor to call a special election nod until that is done Hamilton County will have only two Representatives in " the next House. Le iuo" reason for the action taken is that he "would not accept a certifi cate of electiou against which there was the slightest charge of irregularity." The Supreme Court to-day allowed a writ of certiorari and supersedeas in the MeGill-Levine case on the ground that that the case is an election contest and that it is not within the jurisdiction of the Chancery Cor.rt. Under the decision of the Supreme Court an order will bo issued restrain ing further progress of the case in the Chancery Court. , , ( Bynum Wants State Job,; Selmer, Tenn., Dec. 18.

Adjutant-General Saya State Ap propriation Is Exhausted. Nashville, Tenn., Dec, 18. "The weakness of the national guard at this time is lack of attendance at drills during the period of armory instruc tion, or from one encampment to an other, and a failure on the part of both officers and men to realize the necessity of proper care and preservation of the army equipment," reads tbo biennial report of Adjt.-Gen. Frank Maloney, seeking to explain the present weakness of the State guard. Gen. Maloney states that the require ments of the War Department are be ing steadily increased, and unless some thing is done to increase the attractive ness of the drills and improve the armor ies it is questionable whether the guard can continue much longer to meet the requirements of the national depart ment. ." ' "Our biennial appropriation has been exhausted in an effort to improve con ditions along this line," said Gen. Ma loney, "but result are still far from satisfactory. The balance now due this State from our federal allotment is am ple to maintain the equipment up to the required standard." Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the di waned portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitution al remedies. Oeafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a tumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely cloxed. Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tulie restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of teu are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Garrett will return to Congress until after the Christ mas holidays. By bis announcement, in a tefegram to Representative McKel lar of Tennessee, that be would Dot per rujt his name to be further used as a candidate for majority leader of the House, Mr. Garrett has not wrought self effacement as a potential factor in the organization of the House of the next Congress by any means. Thefield is'now open and undisputed for Mr. Kitchin of North Carolina as majority leader of the uext Congress. Caucus knives are being whetted, however, for the scalp of Representative Henry of Texas as Chairman of the Rules Com mittee, and bis removal by the caucus for failure to keep both feet firmly on the administration reservation is a fore gone conclusion. This leaves Mr. Pou of North Carolina ranking member of the Rules Committee, a position which be cannof well retain owing to the high honor given Mr. Kitchin from bis State. This places Mr, Garrett in direct line, for the chairmanship of the Rules Com mittee, a place second to the chairman ship of the Ways and Means Commit tee. Mr. Garrett is a "parliamentary wizard," and that be will draw this chairmanship is generally conceded in inner circles.

LEVER BILL PASSES HOUSE 218 TO 97 Provides for Licensing Cotton and Grain Warehouses. Washington, Dec. 1. The Lever cotton warehouse bill, before the House for months, was passed to-day, 18 to 97. The measure provides for federal licensing of cotton and grain warehouses and is a substitute for a Senate till re stricted to cotton warehouses. The bill now goes to conference between the Houses. ; .. The bill, approved by the administra tion, was the subject of brief debate, its sponsors contending thai it would great ly enhance confidence in agricultural products. Its opponents claimed it was unconstitutional. "This bill, "said Representative Lever, will result in the establishment of uni form warehouses and uniform ware house receipts for agricultural products throughout the country. It will give a certainty and value to warehouse re ceipts which will make liquid the evi dence of ownership of agricultural prod ucts. It will enhance the value of ware house receipts as collateral on which loans may be sought by producers. It will give greater negotiability to agri cultural receipts for agricultural prod ucts. "The measure will bring together more closely agricultural products and banking capital. It will result in larger storage facilities for agricultural products and will serve as an incentive to farmers to store their products and thereby save millions of dollars of weather loss each year. IS A farmers' hill. "It will furnish to the farmer for the first time in this country the machinery through which he not only may know the class or grade of his products, but its commercial value. It will put bim in a position to market bio crops when the demand is strongest and the price highest. It is a farmer's bill and a most far-reaching forward step in our cum bersome system of marketing." The bill is not compulsory in any way. Main provisions proposed by the bill are: Classification of cotton and licensing of cotton warehouses, It bonds owners and operators of ware houses and gives the right of recovery upon the bond to the owner of cotton stored. It licenses graders or classifiers of cot ton, .....: It provides that licensed warehouses shall issue receipts describing the bales stored, the receipts to be assignable when desired. ' It provides for maintenance of ac curate records of cotton stored, the re ceipts issued, the right of the secretary of agriculture to examine records and requires reports from operators to the secretary. ' . It authorizes the secretary to deter mine whether cotton stored in ware bouses actually is of the grade or class certified in the receipt and to publish bis findings. It empowers the secretary to suspend or revoke licenses and to publish not only that fact but the results of investi gations made. ' NEWS NOTES.
