J. N. RUBDLE, Clerk. W. M. Miles, Sol. for Complt. ' Mr. Crabtree Speaks. The candidate for Governor, Mr. Crabtree, arrived in Union City about five hours late, but he spoke to a small number of people at the court house Wednesday night. Evidently Mr. Crabtree i3 an hon ored citizen of his own part of the State, and In his speeches .he seesis to be moved to a very fair consider ation for the personal feelings of his opponent. . He undertakes to assail Governor Roberts tax bill and his political organization, but there is nothing more striking about the ad dress than the pathetic figure of a man whose argument is so vapid, whose attack so weak, whose whole aspect and appearance so distress- ingly disappointing that even his own admirers and friends pay him poor reverence. They do not even respond with the courtesy of ap plause. 1 It would indeed be a discomfort ing thought to trace the line of il lustrious Governors of the proud old Voliinter State from John Sevier, An drew Johnson, Isham G. Harris, Jas. D. Porter, Albert S. Marks, Benton McMillen, and even our own Bob Taylor down to the shoulders of a man who cannot successfully defend the - position he has assumed and fails utterly to move his friends with encouragement. Mr. Crabtree made a few efforts to criticise the tax bill and the ad ministration. He called the tax bill vicious, saying that it i3 autocratic that it placed the burden3 upon the producer of the necessities of life. He referred to the Crockett County railroad assessment, saying that the former tax was $7500, and under the new assessment it is $2500. He did not say whether this was the personalty and trackage, or only one or the other. The Obion County assessment does not show a condi tion of this kind. The railroad tax here has been largely increased un der the new law. Mr. Crabtree charged the adminis tration with a political machine and extravagance. Governor Roberts made his first race for a reform of this practice, and he proceeded to weed out a few of the useless offi cers. No man can do it all at once. The speaker referred to the Carroll County road contracts. The con tractors were, he says, required to pay a forfeit of only $500 on a con tract of $150,000 and this was de faulted and a' new contract made for $174,000, which costs the State State $14,000. He called attention to the fact that Mr. House had built no good roads in Obion County at all. The fact is that good roa.ds are es timated at nearly $40,000 a mile and no State or Government is able to build them at any price until la bor is obtainable. Mr. Crabtree would indeed be a sorry figure to meet .the renowned Jesse Littleton in the arena of polit ical combat. The fortunes of the Democratic party in Tennessee are worth more than the ambitions of a man without pretensions or leader ship and the bickerings of numbers of disappointed office holders. Hot Stuff. We run a block to catch a car; (Ain't it hot?) It's gone before we get that far; (Ain't it hot?) We wipe- the perspiration dry From neck and chin and nose and eye And hope and pray for cloudy sky. (Ain't it hot?) , - We reach the office wringing wet; (Ain't it hot?) The gang is. in a stew and fret; (Ain't it hot?) No one wants to work or stay; Lake Mich is but a mile away; They say the water's fine to-day. - (Ain't it hot?) We sit down at the old machine; (Ain't it hot?) And try to coax an addled bean; (Ain't it liot?) Our hands and face have sVeat enough; Our state of mind ia "Treat 'em rough!" And you get, just this kind of stuff. "(Ain't it hot!!)

William Jennings Bryan was nominated by acclamation as the Prohibition Par ty's Presidential nominee at the na tional convention late to-day. The nomination came after a resolution "tendering" him the position of standard-bearer had brought out tiie fact in debate that he had tele graphed fricnd3 here that he "could not accept." . By naming Mr. Bryan, the conven tion1 upset precedent as well as its programme by selecting, .he candi date on the first day.. Nominations were not scheduled until Friday. 4 jX , " 5 mm I m Msm&m 3 8 HIS FIGHTING FACE. Ever on the alert for first-hand sporting news, we are able to present herewith the fighting face of Frank C. Kelly, better known in the Atlan tic Fleet as "Red" Kelly, who is the undisputed bantam-weight champion boxer of the Atlantic Fleet. Kelly licked al! the boys hi3 weight in the Fleet during their four month's cruise in southern waters and won the championship from To ny . Bagnano, of the dreadnaug'ht Florida, on April 23, this yeaf. Kel ly hails from Philadelphia, where he recently spent his furlough, and what a welcome he received can only be told by the litle bantam. To the People ofObion County. I specially address the friends who have supported me in my Legislative contest. Owing to a misunderstand ing on my part as to the required number of names necessary to have name entered on ballot, I have been rejected by the Primary Board and my name will not appear on the bal lot as a candidate for the Legisla ture. I had filed my petition several days before the last day for filing, but I had only 23 names and the law calls for 25. I did not get notice of my petition not having sufficient names until it was too late for me to add them. I regret this more than I can ex press to you in this notice. I believe the prospective laws I presented to you were for the best interests of Obion County taxpayers and the en tire State. I believe in federal aid to schools as the proper way to build up your county schools, and as Tennessee is th 46th State as to the standard of education, you will get this aid by special attention from your Repre sentative. I believe' Tennessee should have a law to buy your county supplies at the lowest bid, just as you have bought your school books. Last year the counties paid into the wholesale houses $150,000 for office supplies at retail prices. I believe Obion County should have laws revising the salaries of your county officers in such a way that the county should not pay the Sheriff out of county taxes as we are now doing to the amount of $1200.00 per year. You should al30 provide for your Cirucit Court Clerk, for he will soon have to be provided for as does your Sheriff at present. Trusting your selection for Repre sentative may be to the best interest of Obion County, I am your obedient servant with grateful heart for hon ors bestowed upon me in the past, D. P. CALDWELL. Cat.
