M TAILOR'S MESSAGE,
cOSTltiVTED TBOU TSTBD PAOE-
the United States jurisdiction over the lands
and tue highways appi oachiDg it. I, therefore,
recommend that an act of cession be passed.
As apprehended in the last regular message,
the State of Virginia baa instituted suit In the
Supreme Court of the United. States asserting
ber claim to territory ov vbicb Tennessee
has for a long series of jrars exercised undis
puted possession, an-i,'ly. authority of your
predecessors, I have, employed attorneys to rep
resent the State of Tennessee in said suit, ami
the bill has Leon fully and ably answered. The
causa has nor yet been called. ' -
P.. POI.K'8 BONDS.
I recommend that your honorable bodies au
thorize the tending at par of tho bonds of the
State nowield and owned by Mrs. J. K. Folk.
Her immortal husband shed glory and honor
upon h State, and helped to make It gruat,
and this reasonable request .of his nged ami
worthy -widow cannot be slighted without dis
credit to the Stale.
A OOVEBXOR'S MANSION.
Sow, that the time of my retirement is at
hand, I can with more propriety urge the pur
chase or election by tho Slate of a mansion
honscfotita Governor. Tho honor iu being
called to such a high station is ample compen
sation, but the State should surround Its Exec
utive with facilities for maintaining the dig
nity of his place and the reputable honor of the
Commonwealth. It should be furnished and
maintained in a manner befitting a place where
the dignity and honor of the State is lodged.
UNIFORM ITT OF I.EQISLATrON.
I present herewith papers and suggestions
emanating from the American Bar Association
looking to unifoi-mity til, legislation in the sev
eral States relating Vo marriage and divorce,
insolvency, notarial certificates, descent and
distribution, wls, etc. It presents a matter of
grave importance, well worthy the serious
consideration of your honorable bodies, and I
rccommexid that actisn be taken similar to
that a -opted by New York. The papcra pre
sented show some very remarkable and lament
able statistics upon divorces, and reveal an
a'jtrming increase. When it is stated that one
'iivorre wag granted in 1880 to every 425 mar
ried couples in Tennessee, it needs no argu
ment to prove that our laws aro too loose and
that a remedy is needed. In Nashville the pro
portion was 216 to 1, and in Memphis 243 to 1.
The evil is becoming so prevalent that it is at
tracting attention all over the country and
arousing thought. It merits your thoughtful
interposition at once.
That our Constitution is obsolete in syme par
ticulars and incomplete in others is patent to
all. The progress we are making in material
things, as well as in the scions of popular gov
ernment, and tho regulation and adjustment of
individual rights and ifie rights of property,
merit a revision of wr fandamental law upon
a plane in keeping with such advancement. I
do noV believe tlnat the time is yet arrived for
the ioldng of such a convention, but the initial
st';p shoulu be taken looking to a convention
Tithin the next few years, in order that the in
telligence of the Stato may be directed to the
subject, discussion had and the necessities of the
case determined in advance, that the conven
tion when it meets shall begin and perform its
work In the light that popular thought has shed
upon, the subject. A resolution by your honor
abl 6 bodies declaring that a constitutional con
vention is desirable, say four years hence, will
r.vail to arouse such thought as will lead to in
telligent and beneficial results.
CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS HOME.
I transmit herewith the annual report of the
Trustees of tho Confederate Soldiers' Home for
your perusal and consideration. By an exam
ination of this report you will find that one
year's energetic and devoted effort has placed
the home upon a good initial basis and it is
now ready to begin thegre.it beneficent work
in earnest. The Trustees niako request for ap
propriations for the farther improvement and
sustenance of the institntion, which I commend
to yon as reasonable and worthv of favorable

action. The Legislators hss little opportunity
to be generous to these mfferiDg aud decrepit
heroes of the Lost Cause, and the most llbersj
id you can give thein would be but cant
response to the sacred obligations that
rests upon the State and those of us who
are able to shield them from want and priva
tion in their helplessness and old ago. We nave
been csntealed loo long to feed them npon talk
and clothe them upou praise, and H Is time
now to stifle their cries with bread instead of
blarney. The rotting headboards in our ceme
teries cry pileously to us to ULekl the muti
lated and un-lirouded occupants frea ebtirim,
but while we revere their memory and lore
them for tho blood they shed, conid U&ey speaJt
from their graves they would implore us t.
leave them unmarked and let their names jicr
ish, if that be necessary, to secure relief ad
consolation to their orphans and lhoir llmp-ag
comrades. The Federal GoTenwncni Juts im
propriated hundreds of millions to pension
its soldiers, their widows and orphans,
to preserve and beautify the graves . of
those nlio fell and to provide amines for tho so
who are destitute; -tnt thete brave men, our
kindred and friends, who lost pioperty, health
and thousands of them their lives, under tho
folds of the bloody cross, have no strong arm of
Government to shield them ia their old age, no
treasury to sustain them in their poverty, and
no public fond exists with which to preserve
from oblivion tba graves of those who died.
The tHaies at whose call to arms they so gal
lantly responded should at least supplement tho
noOletffojts of the few generous citizens who
arc seeking to alleviate their sufferings sod
smooth a pillow for their weary heads.
I retire from the executive office to which the
people of Tennessee called me. with iho con
sciousness of having sought diligently to dis
charge its trusts in the fear of God and the in
terest of the people. The gratifying accom
plishments of the administration swell my
heart with pride, although I am far from
claiming more than slight share in their con
summation. I bavo been, ably assisted in all
departments and by the oflicials of the State
and by the Legislature, and all together, the
conditions being all favorable and the times
propitious, Tennessee has been placed upoH a
hisher plane of prosperity and is in better con
dition than alio ever knew. I congratulate ber
people upon ber splendid condition and more
Feeling confident, gentlemen, that you come to
the discharge of your duly with patriotic pur
pose to make sure that which we have gained
and push forward to higher accomplishments
i.nd richer results, with utmost confidence in
your ability to serve your people well, I need
not exhort you to duty and diligence.
