Porter Chosen Foreman of Jury. Cases Begin Tuesday Morning. ! Judge W. B. Turner, in his charge to the grand jury Monday morning, put special stress upon the enforce ment of the pure food laws. He urged upon them that they should careful ly investigate and report all cases in which bakeries, canneries and butch er shops were negligent in the ob servance of the law upon these ques tions. He said that the spring and summer were drawing near, and that in the interest of sanitation and the health of the community, such shops and stores should be carefully exam ined to see that the proper screens should be placed in order. He also mentioned the law upon short weights, and stated that it would be their duty to report all who were de linquent. In addition to the above sugges tions in his charge, he gave them the customary instructions in regard to their duty in bringing indictments for murder, gaming, public drunkenness, carrying pistols, reckless running of automobiles upon public highways, and the failure to observe the liquor laws of the state. The following were drawn as mem bers of the grand jury: Foreman, T. L. Porter, Wilson Dobbins, Bob Craig, J. P. Scott, M. P. Fox, A. C. Letsinger, Winfleld Harris, F. D. Campbell, J. B.

Miss Katherine Cates and Miss Anna Lee Soule, who were in the roles of Antonio and Bas sanio, though at a disadvantage by reason of playing male parts, carried off their work with case and grace. The only fault to be found was in the failure of their voices to carry well into the audience. Misses Gladys Gilliam and Marguerite Page, as Gra tiano and Lorenzo, were good in their respective parts and gave an excellent WILL ASK FOR REHEARING OF ELECTION LAW CASE BY SUPREME COURT. Special to The Herald. NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 16. At torney John J. Vertrees, representing the "regulars," will ask for a rehear ing of the election law case decided Saturday by the supreme court, in so far as it involves the seat of Reich man, of Memphis, on the state board. It will be recalled that Relchman was elected by the legislature to take the place of Leslie M. Stratton, resigned. There was no quorum present at the time of the election and it is to deter mine this point that a rehearing will be asked. If Reichman is not seat ed the vacancy will be filled by the other members of the state board, Messrs. Young and Penland. IEC:I0N LAW CASE I KES NO CHANGE IN L0CA1 POLITICS MORE THAN EVER CERTAIN NOW THAT THERE WILL BE NO COUNTY PRIMARY. NEITHER FACTION WANTS ONE Believed That the Election of Inde pendent Democrats to the Next Legislature Is Assaured No Prima ry Since That of Fabruary, 1910. It is the general opinion or local politicians that the decision or the supreme court in the election law case mkes it more than ever certain that there will be no county pilmary in Maury this year. The independ ents have never favored the primary plan aid with a fair and square deal in the general election assured they see no reason whatever why the con test should not go on until the first Thursday in August. The regulars have been divided on the question of a primary from the first. Some of the old Ruard, ran tankerous sort have sought to have the committee call a primary but the more conservative members of the faction have opposed this action with the result that nothing lias been done by the committee and it is more than ever the opinion of politician? that conservative counsel will prevail. Maury counay has not had a coun ty primary since the party was split into two organizations four years ago. The last primarv was held in February, 1910. Soon after that the "regular" faction bolted the county committee and organiezd a rival com mittee. Two years ago no primary was held. However, at that time- there was no contest over the county offices. The county election thic, year will be the first in more 'ban a dozen years where there was a contest to be decided without a democratic pri mary. It is generally believed that the de cision of the court insures absolutely the return this year of independent democrats to the legislature from Maury county. In the last election the independents were elected by over 600 majority and !he sentiment for prohibition and law enforcement is much stronger in the county now than it was at that time. On the whole the election law decision, so far as Maury county is concerned, practicality insures the stsatus quo in the political situation.

Both the major and the minor roles were played with fidelity and a care ful understanding of the lines. Many of the actors showed dramatic ability of no mean order. Dr. Byron W.
