LAFOLLETTE, Tenn., Feb. 21. Hon. W. A. Owen, the Democratic nessee bar, a supporter of the Inde pendent judiciary and a supporter of Bob Taylor in the Ouebrnatorial cam paign, has made an earnest plea for harmony in the Democratic party. Mr. Owen last night issued the fol lowing statement. "I notice that Senator Taylor Is again urging upon the Democrats of the State the necessity of, unity and the cessation of hostilities in our ranks. I quite agree with the Senator that we should have peace. "Why is it we cannot have peace? It waB urged that so long as Mr. Pat terson was in charge of the party ma- chine and- running the affairs of the State, (hat , there could be no peace. Now, Mr. Patterson is out as a pri vate citizen, bo jtbat cause is removed. The Democratic Executive, commit tee, it was" charged, was the machine! of Mr. Patterson, and it has surren-1 dered and disbanded, so that is out of the-way. It is true that we still tave two State committees. This, uowev-;be . er, is an easy matter to adjust, for khe present we do not propose to treat with, that subject, but to leave it for future discussion. k, - "It has been further urged as a cause for division in the Democratic party the difference of opinion upon the liquor question, but as I now un derstand it It is conceded by all par ties that the liquor laws are not to be disturbed, but left alone as . they are for two years, so that has been re moved. . . t . "There was another reason which was not urged, but which really ex isted and 'that was the election of a United 8tates Senator and. other State j officials by the legislature, all of which have been done and these now nave neen eijminaieq. -( j "There was still another reason which , was .urged why the Democrats j could not get together and thaj was that the Independents had voted for a Republican Governor, but since that the regulars have voted for a Repub- Um ?r treasurer, so honors.aro now about even, both sides having, kissed tne -nigger- naDy, anq .,11 is aopui time to get together. "With the things I have mentioned out of the way, it seems that the Dem ocrats in the legislature should now be able to reach some understanding among themselves as to all polit- leal matters hereafter to come before the legislature, and especially is this so with reference to the political dis tricting of. the State. . "I desire to call the attention of the Democratic members of the legisla- ture to the fact that the next tegisla- j Laxatives-Dr. King's New Life Pills ture to be elected is going to be either Bnd tnat they're a 'blessing to all Democratic or Republican.

The Democrats at iiome', men who are interested in the success and( welfare of the party, when it comes to questions affecting the fu ture, welfare of the party will not be pleased at seeing their representa tives. in coalition with either taction of the Republican party. The Demo cratic party will continue to exist long after factional strife has died out and the men engaged in the warfare forgotten. The men at home, and who must do the voting, are not so preju diced as their representatives who have been engaged in political wife in. an effort to elect some to ar. of fice, and since this Is now over, the men at home should be considered in the political division of the State.., j "This letter is not written in a spir it of criticism, but in the hope that the senators and representatives, af ter returning home and spending the recess with the common people, may determine to join with other Demo- crat8 wlthout regard to pa8t differ' ences, in laying the State off into po litical divisions.

SOPREICOORTHAS BUSY DAY DECIDING COMMERCE LAWS SWEEPING INTERSTATE PRINCI PLES OF TRAFFIC LAID DOWN . ... .... BY JUOQES. . Declares That No Railroad Can Pay for Services With Transportation. States May .Regulate Slie of Train Craws on Interstate Runs. WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. Not for years have so many far-reaching prin ciples relating to interstate commerce been approved by the Supreme Court of the United States as were entab lished in its decision today as the un questioned law of the land. Decis ions on other difficult question ques tion Bwere announced. Among the questions of interstate commerce decided were these: That the passenger has no right to buy tickets with services, advertising, releases or property, nor can the rail road company buy services, advertis ing releases or property with trans portation, r , ; . . . . - That a State law regulating the size of crews on trains within the State Is not an obstruction to intersetate com merce, but is rather enacted in aid of intersetate commerce and may be passed by a State for public safety. That the Supreme Court will re view the validity of an order of the in terstate, commerce even though the two year limitation on the life of the order haa expired. That a railway-system may not es cape regulation as an Instrument of interstate commerce, because one of its constituent parts is a wharfage j company and its denominating power over the wharfage company rests in the. fact that it is a holding company. The interstate commerce coramis sion does not possess the power ,to re duce the rate as "unjust and unreas onable" merely because the rate is in equitable under some circumstances, as increases where . railroads induce shippers to enter a field by offering rates as low as to be unremuneretive and later increase the rateB,. The court furthermore decided as constitutional a state statute provid ing that no contract of relief, benefit or insurance should be a bar to the right of a railroad employe engaged in the operation ofa railroad to sue the employer for damages resulting from injuries received in the course several councllmen of Clay Center, Kansas, was held in contempt, but excused from punish ment, with the payment of costs, be cause they destroyed the subject mat ter of a litigation before the supreme court after its decision was annaunc- ed, hut before itM mandate hai been ilBgued or tlme glven for a motion for rehearing. The famous boycott case brought in the local ' courts by the - Sucks Stove & Range company of SLLouIs, against the American ' Federation of Labor was formally dismissed. The officials of the Naval Stores company were granted a review of their conviction of alelged violations of the Sherman anti-trust law.
