This is going to be a year when every Democrat in the State is a party leader, and will be charged with the responsibility of doing a specified duty during the campaign, according to headquarters here. Every loyal member of the party is expected to be a speaker in behalf of Democratic success and it is believed that if the tenets of the party are discussed and passed along from individual to individual, there will be a wonderful awakening of party spirit. "I am depending on every Dem ocrat in the State to be a campaign orator" declared Joseph W. Byrns, Chairman of the Democratic Cam paign Committee. 'I do not mean that each must take the stump and make a speech, but I hope that every day each loyal member of the party will have something to say to a neighbor regarding the importance of voting for the Democratic candi dates. "If Bill" will suggest to Tom, his views on the situation and Tom passed it along to the next fellow and if thousands of men and women all over Tennessee get to talking about the cause of the Democratic party, it will mean that interest will be aroused to a point where the great majority of the voters will go to the polls on election day. "We don't want to just win this fight. We want to win with a big majority and one which will dis courage our G. O. P. friends for many years to come. If ro all get togeth er, join our county and community organizations and work consistently, we can put it over." Bond Issue Loses. Dresden, Tenn., Oct. 3.

The structure cost Nashville, Tenn. Elaborate prepar ations are being mae at Vanderbilt University for the formal opening of the new Dudley Stattium; which will rn christened Ootober 14, with a great Intersectional foot rail game between Vanderbilt and the University of Mich igan. The hie athletic structure at Van- dfirhilt. the first modern concrete and steel stadium built In the south, is now practically completed, and when finished in every detail will seat 25.000 sDectators and will cost fn the neighborhood of $200,000. It will serve besides an athletic ampitheater ana field as a memorial to the late Dr. William L. Dudley of the university faculty, father and chief patron and promoter of Vanderbilt athletics and lone time president of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. As the picture shows, the stadium is In the form of a letter "U" or horse shoe, with the north end open. The stands tower on three sides of the big structure more than thirty tiers high. The boxes of which there are a total of 434, occupy the space next to the ground on the east and west sides of the field. The south or closed end of the "U" is devoted to stand seats only. The special section for the rooters is on the east side near the south end.

Day, who will resign within the next 30 days, it is reported on good authority. Details as to why Senator Shields has been selected are left to President Hard ing to state. Suffice it to say that As sociate Justice Day is going to devote all of his time to the American-German claims incident to the war.

I shall set out to the General As sembly in an early message what ap propriations should be made and in what amounts to every department, institution and activity In the State, exactly, as I promised the people I would do. Even more important, I shall name the officers, bureaus and departments which in my judgment are unnecessary and should be abol ished. When you remember that the mis cellaneous accounts of our State have jumped in 20 ycaro from the small sum of $8,208.73 in a biennial period to $5,663,671.43 in the lact period, it is not rash to say that a million dollars and more can bo saved with, out impairing the indispensable agen cic3 of the State. That is exactly what is going to be done if I am elected Governor. That fierce oppo sition will bo encountered in this programme goes without saying. am candid with my plac3, because I prefer that everybody rhall know them; that none may be taken un awares if they think themselves in danger from this cevrse. ; UVUVUIl , MiUUluiu $200,000, and seats 25,000 spectators. ers and showers for both teams and a drying room, which also will serve" as a laundry for athletic supplies used m the games. This structure will bear the name of Walter O. Parmer, noted Nashville Bportsman, who gave $10,00 as a special subscription to make pos sible its erection. ' One of the finest features of the new stadium Is the modernly con structed football field, which has been in a state of completion since early In the summer. This field is built up on base of crushed stone, cinders and til ing, the tiling being so skillfully placed as to make football play possible dur ing or after the hardest rain. It is covered, with a velvety and cushiony blue grass which provides a surface sound for the athletes' footing and soft enough to relieve much of the concussion incident to play on a dirt field. The stadium will be used only for big football games and field sports. Much incidental interest attaches to the opening game for the reason that McGugin and Yost, contending coach, es, are old pals, former pupil and coach, brothers-in-law, and died-in-th wool gridron rivals. Other incidental features of tha opening game which are expected to attract to Nashville a crowd that will fill the big stadium are alumni and athletic stars reunions, rail excursions and automobile parties from nearby towns and cities, and many social events in Nashville clubs, homes and fraternity houses at Vanderbilt.

Brewer says that a Mr. Dixie was a slaveholder on Manhattan Island, compelled by public opinion to remove his human chattels to the south. In their new abode they had to toil ceaselessly, and often sighed for their old home at the north, which laps of time and distance had invested with a halo of paradisic pleasures. This "Dixie Land" become to the entire colored race in the south a Utopia, similar to the Scottish "Land of the Leal" of the For tunate Islands of the ancients.
