Garwood's Sarsaparilla for the blood
guaranteed tocore. A. B. Rains
McCain's, Jan. 18. Last Sabbath was
the eighth anniversary of the pastorate
of Rev. M. E. Gabard, who is In charge
of McCain's and Glenwood Cumberland
Presbyterian churches. At the close of
an appropriate sermon from Acta 20:31,
he gave the congregation a report of
his labors, apart of which is as follows:
"Total membership as reported in 1890
for both churches, 203. Total member
chip of both churches as reported in
May 1897 was 397, which gives a gain
above deaths and removals of 134. An
average yearly gain of nearly 19 mem
bers." Bro. Gabard has during his pas
torate preached in all nearly one thou
sand sermons; married twenty-eight
couples, and preached forty-five funer
al discourses. Out side of his home
" work, he has encouraged other com
munities to build two new churches
and repair Ave others. He has also or
gauiied three Sunday-schools and five
Christiati Endeavor Societies. Aside
from this, four years ago he was the
prime mover in the re-establishing of
SlcCain'a Academy, which is to-day one
of the best and most prosperous pre
paratory rchools in Maury county. He
was installed regular pastor of these
churches in 1894, and since that time
there has been a manifest growth,
especially among the voting people, the
most of whom are earnest endeavorers.
These churches appreciate the work of
their pastor, especially the younger
members, the most of whom have been
converted and added to the church un
der his ministry. We feel proud of the
honor confered upon him by a Unlver
sitv in Alabama a few weeks ago, that
of Doctor of Divinif. The outlook of
these churches is brighter than ever be
fore. We trust that God may direct him
as he leads us forth into another year s

A resolution was Introduced in
the House to elect a United States
Senator January 25.
The Vote Stood, McMillin 39, Turlejr
and Taylor 19.
The Senatorial race assumed a
more interesting aspect last Satur
day, when Gov. Taylor announced
that he was iu the saddle and ready
to vie with Senator Turley and Mr.
McMillin for the laurels. Gov. Tay
lor's announcement created consid-
rable interest and much surprise,
nasmuch as he had said a few days
efore that ho would not enter the
race, but would give his support to
Mr. Turley. In announcing himself,
Gov. Taylor said:
I have no ill-will against Mr.
McMillin, but I think he ought to
fight for his laurels as I have, done.
Mr. McMillin declined to face the
gathering storm in the gubernatorial
contest in 1890, after investigating
the situation. My party called upon
me to face it. I asked no questions,
but staked all and bore the standard
throughout the state, in the most
terrific battle, ever fought in Ten
nessee. The people told me wher-
ver I went thatthey would see to it
that I bhould wear the senatorial
laurels. The people are for me now,
and I only ask my friend v who
fought this battle .with . me , to. do
what they consider to be their -duty,
and I will abide their verdict."
The Democrats of both houses met
in joint caucu Monday night, pur
suant to a call from Chairman 1 Jar-
is, but remained in session only a
short time, and then adjourned
without balloting to meet again
Wedr6sday night.., The adjourn
ment was forced by the Taylor and
Turley forces, who were playing for
After the caucus the crowd from
the Capitol went down to the Max
well House where all the candidates
are stopping and began calling for
neeches. Uov. i Taylor responded.
He said he did not think it -proper
that he should make a speech until
after the Legislature had reflected
the will of the people, , They had
two magnificent men as candidates.
and either would represent the great
Commonwealth magnificently, ana
the Legislature would make no mis
take in selecting either one." He
had appointed Turley because West
lennessee should nave one oi. tne
Senators, but with such splendid
men before them, it was,difflcult for
the Legislature to make a choice,
and he bad i thought it best they
should compromise on an honest old
farmer like himself.
Mr. McMillin was then called for,
and spoke briefly, and said H its was
right for the , Governor . to i appoint
Senator Turley, why was it right for
him to enter the race and try to beat
Turley now? When the Governor
was thinking of appointing Senator
Turley, his friends had told the
Governor he was making a mistake,
and now the Governor confirmed
this statement by trying to beat his
own appointee. '. - . ;
senator Turley said that he naa
not sought the office, but he felt
that justice demanded that , he
should fill out the term.; Since he
had first cast a vote no platform had
so truly expressed the principles of
Democracy as that adopted at Chi
cago, lie would submit to the Leg
islature's decree and serve his State
as faithfully in the ranks as be
would in the Senate. '

Bancrolt Murray and others 6poke,
and an enthusiastic admirer of ben

The first ballot resulted as follows:
McMillin 39, Turley 30 and Taylor
19. The result of the last ballot
was: McMillin 38, Turley 30 and
Taylor 19. Representative Smith,
of Maury, who had been voting for
McMillin, voted on this ballot for
Turley; but Representative Ewell,
who had been , voting for Turley,
was temporarily absent from the
room, with the, result that though
McMillin lost oue vote to Turley,
the Turley vote stood the same.
Tne number in the caucus was 88:

It was agreed that there should
be three nominating speeches, oue
for each candidate, but no seconds
When nominations were declared
in order, Representative Brandon,
of Stewart, placed Congressman Mc
Millin in nomiuation. - His speech
was an able presentation of Mr. Mc
Millars claims : tt was well deliverd,
and received with tremendous ap
plauHe. Following this came Sen
ator Parker, of Bedford, who spoke
Got. It. L. Taylor.
Mr. Farker also made a fine
speech, and among other things
sent the following hot shot straight
at the McMUiin forces :
"lor twelve long and stormy
years jjod lay lor has been the
choice of the people as the standard
bearer of Democracy, and with him
in command, our proud banuer has
never trailed iu the dust or gone
down in dereat. in all these years
he has never turned a deaf ear to
his party's call. He has never
said, "I am not able ; I cannot ailord
to make the sacrifice." No sacrifice
has been too dear for him to make
when his party calls. In his
party wasdissevered,discordant and
bellgerent; disaster stared us in
the face. We looked for a leader
Others looked at the 'field, turned
pale, trembled in the knees. But
the man whom the people had
made heard this cry for help and,
unmindful of personal sacrifices,
snatched up the banner of his party,
gathered together the shattered
hosts of Democracy and bade them
take hope and courage again. Will
you turn and send the deadly arrow
to his heart? Will this body con
sent to ruin him, and humiliate the
people in this hour of triumph?
A perfect storm of applause
greeted this eulogy of Gov. Taylor
and pointed thrust at Mr. McMillin
for his back-down in 1896.
Then came Senator Whlttaker of
Lincoln, who spoke for
This gentleman said:
"I propose to put in nomination a
man whom the opposition concede
to be a man fitted for the nomlna
nation. If you concede that he is
fitted for the position, If you con
cede that there is not one criticism,
not one charge that can be preferred
against him, I ask you if he ought
to be turned down in any such man
ner? I will present to you to-night
a man whose moral character is as
pure and spotless as the driven snow.
I will present to you a man who is
the irietid of the people in contrast
with the moneyed powers of the
country. I will present to you the
name of a man who will represent
the interests of the 8tate without
respect to a division of the State,
and who is not in league with the:
corporate powers of the country and
tne money ehylocks. I will present
the name of a man who is a philan
thropist and a patriot. If you doubt
hi patriotism I would ask you to jro
with me' to the fields of battle of
Stone's River, Shiloh, Peach Treo
Creek, iu Atlanta, aud if yon doubt
that patriotism of which I sneak.
then I would ask you to go to the
man himself, and, like Thomas, as
spoken of in the Scriptures, ask him
to 'lay' bare his bosom, and you
would exclaim with me, Patriot I
Patriot! Patriot! Where is the
old Confederate soldier who can
cast his vote against him?, i Where
is Hie Confederate soldier who spent
night aftet hfgbt on the picket guard
with this man, that can vote
against him? Where is the Confed
erate soldier that does not recognize
this mini's patriotism? And if he
was a patriot during the war; when
the country wan In great distress, at
a time w lieu it tried men's souls,
would he not he a friend to the peo
ple iu times of peace?" ;

The Turley men were feelimr
more nopeiui last night than they
have at any time during the Hsrht.
They honestly believe that they will
win in the end. It is learned
that they are figuring on votes
both from McMillin aid Tav
lor. They certainly have more
cause for hopefulness than they
have ever had, but the indications
still are that McMillin will finally
land tne nomination, lie believes
that his vote will stand solid. On
the first ballot the vote st'od: Mc
Millin,39; Turley, 30: Taylor, 19
To-night there will be the same
number of votea in the caucus. 88.
It is understood that the Turley and
laylor leaders are llguring on
combination to beat McMillin. If
this be ?o, there are two questions
to be considered, viz: CantheTay
lor leaders throw to Turley 15 out of
their 19 votes or can the Turley
leaders throw to Taylor 26 out of
their 30 votes? Can they deliver
the goods? A split in the McMillin
ranks is not likely.
"It is thought that the first ballot
to-night will be the same as the
first ballot was last night. In that
case McMillin will need 6 votes to
be nominated; Turley will need 15
and Taylor will need 20.
"It seems that Gov. Taylor's defeat
is practically certain. It was rum
ored last night that he would with
draw to-day aud urge his friends to
support Senator Turley. It is said
that the Taylor men will have a
meeting to-day to discuss the mat
ter. "The McMillin forces were confi
dent when the fight commenced.
They are confident yet."
.- Thursday's Itannnr.
Yesterday's Banner says that no
change are apparent; that the sup
porters of all the candidates are
standing firm, and confidence is un
shaken In the camps. Gov. Taylor
denounces the statement that he
would withdraw, as without foun
dation and outrageously falsa.
