pingPrayers and Help of People
of County Are Solicited.
Members of the King's Daughters
at a recent meeting expressed appreci
ation of the faithful work done by the
committees to secure the funds for
the proposed hospital and resolved
that the campaign would be continued
until the entire $20,000 was secured.
The statement issued by the King's
Daughters follows:
"At the recent regular meeting of
the King's Daughters a resolution
was unanimously adopted, stating
their desire to express through the
columns of the press, their apprecia
tion of the loyal, unselfish and intel
ligent work in raising the hospital
fund, of the Chairman, the Rev. E.
B. Andrews, and the nine soliciting
committees. The King's Daughters
j realize that without the devoted and
active easslstance of the chairman
and the committees led by Messrs.
j Raymond Adkisson, J. T. Mcknight,
J. M. Dedman, Robt Harlan, J. S.
I Coffey, W1. P. Boyd, Fred Gamble, H.
P. Figuers, and Charles H.
Sharp and Norman Dale, as well
as the co-operation of those working
with them, the inspiring result of $13,
000 in ten days would have been im
possible, and collectively, as well as
individually the King's Daughters are
deeply appreciative
"The soliciting of funds will be
continued until the aggregate amount
of $20,000 is raised. In the meantime
! we invite the interset and the prayers
t)f the. good people of Maury county
in advancing this noble charity, which
must prove an lneveitable blessing
to the community, and by its reflex
influence, redound to its credit and
stimulate among us civic pride and a
spirit of fraternal affection.
"THE KING'S DAUGHTERS."
At the meeting on Thursday after
noon it was decided to incorporate
the King's Daughters and apply for
a charter. The order will then be in
position to acquire and hold property
as an incorporated body. It was also
decided that a certain portion of the
hospital funds would be used for build
ing and equipment and that a portion
would be set aside as an emergency
fund.

BY CITY ATTORNEY IS SENT
TO MEMBERS.
BOARD IS TO GRANT FRA'CHSE
Alderman Dedman Has Amended the
Sidewalk Ordinance to Allow City
to Give Out Contracts for Their
Construction.
The Board of Mayor and Aldormen
at its adjourned meeting held Thurs
day night, a resolution was passed
requesting the representatives of
Maury county in the legislature to In
troduce a bill providing a special form
of charter for water, gas and electric
light companies, in counties of not
more than 40,000 and less than 11,000
in poulation, according to the last
federal census, or any subsequent fed
eral census. The proposed act has
been drawn up by the attorneys tep-
rcsentlng the city and the water and
light company, and after the pream
ble, gives the charter which it de
sires to have prescribed. The charter
provides for the organization and run
ning under one firm name, a coipor
ation having for its purpose the fur
nishing of electric lights, gas and wa
ter, to the people. This charter. Is
to apply only to cities located in coun
ties having the population above In
dicated. George T. Hughes, Sr., one of the
attorneys representing the city, af
ter drawing up the resolution which
was later passed, In connection with
attorney W. S. Fleming for the water
and light company, stated in a speech
that 1 he had approved , the charter
which was proposed, and that there
were certain sections which he consid
ered especially to the benefit of the
city. These were the sections which
prohibited the company's conducting
its plant in such a manner as to re
sult in annoyance to the people of the
city; that it should construct, main
tain machinery sufficient to supply the
people and the city with an adequate,
full and competent supply of pure and
wholesome water, and .plenty of eleo
trie light and gas; and that it was not
to conduct its affairs in any way to
interfere with the police or the of
ficers of the city in the discharge of
their duties. The board of Mayor and ,
Aldermen Is to prescribe the condi
tlons under which the firm may op- '
erate.
The real fight according to ' Mr.
Hughes and Mr. Fleming, will come
up when the new corporation, acting
under the act which they hope to have
passed, shall ask the city for a fran- .
chise under which they may do busi
ness. ,
A copy of the bill will be furnished
to Representatives Galloway and Lips
comb and to Senator Brown, who will
be requested to push the passage of
the measure. ,
Chairman Chaffln, of the pavement "
committee reported to the hoard that
they had decided to allow the Cen
tury Club and the Elks Club, at their
own expense, to construct a crossing
over the street in front of the Centu
ry Club building on West Seventh.
City Attorney Coffey presented a
resolution which was passed which
authorized W. J. Towler to collect
1910 taxes In certain back tax suite
now pending In addition to the taxes
of 1907, 1908, 1909. ,
Alderman Dedman Introduced an
amendment to the sidewalk ordlnanoe
giving the city the power to let Che
contracts for building pavements. In
stead of the Individuals before whose
property the pavements are to be con
structed. In placing, this resolution
before the board, Mr. Dedman said
that "the new amendment would make
the . pavements uniform tn conatrnc-' ,
tion and material, and In his opinion
would make much' better ' and" more ,
durable pavements.
