FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1922. SENATOR K. D. McKELLAR SPENDS EVENING IN CITY Arrives During the Afternoon. Meets Friends at the Palace. K. D. McKellar, United States Sen ator from Tennessee, was In Union City Tuesday and spent several hours mingling with friends and talking democracy. On account of the union revival at the C. P.Church, he did not attempt to speak but early in the evening he dismissed the small crowd gathered at the court house and invited them to attend the meet ing at the church. He spoke at Dyersburg Monday and at Tiptonville Monday night. He is in the field to remain until after the November election. In his regular speech he makes a strong appeal for the election of Hon. Austin Peay as Governor, and cided to pay a visit to her sister, where she remained during her last illness. . j She was a daughter of J. B. and Mary Levisa Hudson, who lived near Crystal. The mother died 22 years ago and the father pasesd away about six years ago. One brother, C. ,E, Hudson, died about 18 'years ago. She is survived by three bisters and four brothers Mrs. Etta Cloar, Mrs. Lou Cloar, Mrs. Fate Maupin, H. M. Hudson, J. A. Hudson, W. W. Hud son, of this county, and E. Hudson, of Weakley County. For a long time she had been a member of the Cumberland Presby terian Church. The funeral service was held at Antloch conducted by Revs. Cunningham and White. The interment was at Antioch cemetery. Death of Mrs. Haley. Mrs. Nealey Haley, wifo of Wil liam Haley, died at the family home in Number Seven last Fiiday morn ing. At the time of her death she ex- waa 39 years of age. She leives a plains the necessity t having a Gov ernor of the same political complex ion as the General Assembly. He says that Peay is honest, fearless and stands for what he thinks is right. He wants to see an old time Demo cratic majority rolled up. He says that the Republican party has dem onstrated its incompetency to run the government and cites the many bad party breaks during the past 18 months that Congress has been in session. During that time only one important bill has been passed, that the tariff bill. He says that in spite of this iniquitous bill Congress has given the President power to add three million dollars more tax by increased tariffs. He commends Sen ator Borah for being one broad minded Republican, honest enough to vote against such a ridiculous bill. He thinks Congress and the adminis tration have failed in.- their promise to bring normalcy to- the country; they have failed to bring prosperity; they have cut vs off from foreign trade; they have destroyed our mer chant marine; they have failed in the restoring of normalcy to the coal mines and to the railroads. Death Near Crystal. Mrs. Anna Hudson Felts, aged 51 years, died Saturday morning at the home of her sister, Mrs. LaFayette Maupin, near Crystal, after several weeks illness of goitre. When a young woman she was married to a Mr. husband, three children and a host of good friends to mourn tho loss of a good wife, mother and good true friend. The1 funeral service was conducted at Cane Creek Church Saturday morning and the body interred at Cano Creek Cemetery. ' A Sad Death. A very sad death occurred in this city early Wednesday morning when Miss Brinnea Shapard, aged 19 years, daughter of Mrs. Belle Shapard, who lives, three miles west of Antioch, passed away. The young lady had been very sick since" Monday morning, suffering an obstruction of the intestines, and the familiy decided to remove her to this city for surgical treatment. The trip was made but the patient was too weak to stand the journey and died in a few minutes after reaching the Quails sanitarium. She is survived by her mother, two sisters and four brothers. The fath er, Charles Shapard, died a year or so ago. The body was removed to the fam ily home and the funeral service con ducted at Antioch yesterday by Rev.
