MAY ASK FOR CHARTER CHANGE Demand Hat Been Forced on Ac count of the Increased Expense In Municipalities. No Gensral Law Now Applying. There has been a call for a meeting of the mayors of the cities of the state, in Nashville Thursday Jan uary 16, for the purpose of consider ing the enactment of a property abut- ting tax law. Mayor Joe Dedman is In receipt of one of the calls from the Nashville Board of Trade, to gether with a statement of the facts upon which it is expected to base the request of the solons, and will attend the gathering. The mayor and city recorder look with favor upon the proposition and are of the opinion that a general law should be enacted covering this mat ter, and if this cannot be done then the legislature will doubtless be ask ed to change the charter of the city granting it special permission t" as sess the taxes. The increasing demand for public improvements in municipalities and the consequent drain upon the rev enues of cities, has made it neces sary for them to husband their re sourvces to the greatest advantage to construct all public improvements necessary without a burdensome tax rate. Experience has taught that munici palities cannot supply the necessary improvements by the general reven ues and bond issues. And in ordor to meet these necessities laws have ben enacted in many of the states enabling an abutting poperty assess ment. These laws relate almost ex clusively to street paving, guttering and grains which naturally enhances the value of the property. There are no general state laws In Tennessee applying to this char acter of assessment, and some of the cities have found It necessary to se cure special legislation applying to their government alone. ORGANIZATION SOCIETY. (Continued from Seventh Page.) GREAT INTEREST HERE OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY MAURY COUNTY'S MEMBERS WILL LEAVE 8ATURDAY FOR THE SE8SI0N. STANDING BY THEIR PLEDGES Regulars Receive No Encouragement From the Delegation Church, Den ton and Long Expected to Make Mark in the Legislature. Maury county's representatives in the general assembly to convene at Nashville next Monday will leave for the capital city on Saturday morning. Both representatives Denton and Long will go up on the accommoda tion and they will also be joined by Senator Church. They leave on Sat urday in order that they may be able to engage in the conferences and cau cuses that will be held that night. Notwithstanding the fact that Messrs. Church, long and Denton are recognized men of character and in tegrity and were elected upon plain platforms and were known of all men to be opposed to the domination of the liquor machine and the back tax plunderbund, overtures have teen made to them by representatives of the special interests. All have re ceived letters from "regulars" invit ing them into a "caucus" of alleged "democrats." And it is even said that Senator Church has been ap proached by representatives of the liquor power who intimated that they would show him the promised land If he would yield a willing ear to their blandishments. Of course Senator Church and Representatives Long and Denton have paid no attention whatever to the siren song of har mony" and liquor domination, and there is not a man in Maury county who knows them, who for an instant believes that they will do otherwise than stand true to their platform pledges. In fact it would no doubt be a source of everlasting gratification to Messrs. Church, Long and Dencon if they could hear the confidence that Is every day expressed in them when the question of the organization of the legislature Is discuss ed. "If every county had elected members as honest, as faith ful and as true as we did in Maury county the people could go to sleep with the assurance that the liquor power and the back tax plunnderbund would be forever driven from the Banking in the City While Living on the Farm. Not so many years ago bank depositors on the farm and in the smaller towns were forced to be content with make shift accommodations, with incon veniences, with poor facilities, with small institutions Fre quently they could not even have the satisfaction of know ing that their money was safe while on deposit. Now all th's is changed. Any one, no matter where they live, can enjoy all the advantages of bsnkingWith a big, safe, accommodating city bank. Banking by mail has made it pos sible. This is n big city bank that has a large ami growing mail business. We pay our depositors 4- o Compounded Semi Annually and offer them all the benefits enjoyed by our city depositors. Uncle Sam brings us their money and checks for deposit. And Uncle Sam handles the funds that pass from us to them. It is all very simple and absolutely safe. And it is very convenient and profitable for our depositors. Write for par ticulars and proofs. First Savings Bank and Trust Co , Nashville, Tennessee F.
