Too Youna to Work Too Old to Work Chancellor Bearden this morning I rendered his decision in the back tax cases that have, been the subject of much discussion and litigation during the past twelve months, wherein the Tennessee Fertilizer , Co., W. J. How ard, J. H. Carpenter and J. H. Car penter, executor, were the defend ants. The decision sustains the as sessment of the property in question but sets aside the interest, penalties and commissions. The total assess ment, according to the decision ren dered by Trustee McFall at the hear ing of the case before him a short time ago, aggregate $4,511.25. With the interest, penalties and commis sions allowed would approximately bring the sum up to the rise of $8,000. In rendering the decision Chancel lor Bearden went at length into the assessment and back tax laws, die cussing them minutely. These suits were begun early in 1911, and have attracted wide atten tion i nthat there has been an ef fort to - show that the assessments were made in violation of both the state and federal constitution. The attorneys in the case are Pee bles & Forgey and W. J. Towler for the revenue collector, J. It. Jetton, and Crockett Owen, Holding & Gar ner and Hatcher & Hatcher fo the defendants. Both sides will appeal. OHIO GOVERNOR SEES LANDSLIDE SAYS WILSON WILL GET MAJORI TY OVER T." R." AND TAFT. NEW YORK, Oct 31. Political pulmotors, in the hands of ' William Barnes, Jr., Theodore Roosevelt and Gov. Judson Harmon, of ""Ohio, pump ed back some of the breath of real life into the presidential campaign today and tonight. At an important conference in the Manhattan Hotel, Mr. Barnes and Senator EHhu Root told the President some brutal truths about the desperate needs of the re publican cause; Col. Roosevelt at Oyster Bay put his final "O. K." on the plans of the bull moose revival meeting at Madison Square, and Gov. Harmon played - Haround-Al-Raschid about the streets of New York. These three moves put fire and ac tion into all three headquarters. From the 'standpoint of human in terest Gov. Harmon's adventure was the most important, but in their bear ing on the result the Barnes-Taft and the bull moose attitude toward that conference outweigh. Mr. Taft was told by several of bis friends who have as many irons in the fire as-he has, that he must Issue something wit ha "punch" In it If he wishes to retrieve things. The extraordinary proposal was made that, shortly be fore the election, he Issue a brief statement, addressed, not to the vot ers of the United States, but to "My Fellow Republicans," . declaring ihat the present good times and his suc cessful administration have taken the tariff .and trust questions out of the controversy, and the only issue la: Shall Theodore Roosevelt be permit ted on next Tuesday to destroy the republican party."
