LATTER HAS VERY CLOSE SHAYE While the Former Defeated Killen by Over 1,500 Votes Religiously Each Faction Obtained a Candidate The VoU Special to The Herald. NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 24. George J. Tompkins was elected com missioner of buildings and Paul W. Treanor was elected commissioner 0 finance here yesterday. Tompkins de feated Killen by 1,500 votes, while Treanor won over Armstrong by thir ty-five votes. The latter was one of the closest and most exciting contests ever known in the history of the city The election was a partial triumph for the Banner in that it landed Trea nor. However, the Tennessean divid ed honors, having been a suporter of Tompkins. The Catholic element got one while the A. P. A. got the other, Killen, defeated by Tompkins, having been supported by the Catholic vote The result was much closer than the Stokes-Treanor faction believed it would be for they predicted a' ma jority for Treanor of not less than 2,500. It was about one per cent of that The result was not positively known until the last ward had report ed and the defeated candidate, Arm strong, does not yet concede victory to Treanor, but will await the out come of the official count. However, it is not believed that there will be enough changes to change the result The election was generally pronouns ed fair and orderly. Treanor was known as the Stokes candidate and owes his election to the support of Stokes, who demanded that Treanor be selected and who de nounced Armstrong as the candidate of the Hbwse" faction. The Indicted and removed city officials, however, were divided fh their allegiance, some of them supporting Armstrong and others Treanor. The following is the vote: Tompkins 4918 Killen 3458 Treanor 4184 Armstrong 4155 .

Pe ter Lee Atherton, of Louisville, Ky., was elected preasident of the An drew Jackson Highway Association this morning at its session at the Or pheum Theatre. J. G. Creveling, of Nashville, was elected vice president of the association. The Alabama and Mississippi delegation reached a com promise before the convention by agreeing to allow each state in the as sociation three members of the exec utive committee. Alabama agreed to place on the executive committee as one of her three men a representa tive from Florence, which town Is pulling for the Mississippi route, while Mississippi will name a man from the lower tier of counties which are strongly in favor of the middle Al abama route. UDGE M'KNIGHT RETURNS FROM HIGHWAY CONVENTION VERY CONFIDENT. DELEGATION Dili FINE WORK Appointment of J. J. Gray, of This County on State Executive Commit tee, Means an Aggressive Fight to the End of Contest. "I believe that Maury county has the Jackson Highway won," emphati cally declared County Judge J. T. Mc-1 Knight, one of the boosters from this county who attended the big conven tion at Nashville on Thursday. "That is the way it looks to me anyway, though of course one can never, tell and there may come a change in the situation before the route is finally approved. 'The Maury county delegation re ceived cordial support from the Mis sissippi delegates and a part of the Alabama contingent and I am per suaded that these influences will be sufficient to swing the route over the Mt. Pleasant and Florence line, though of course the Lewisburg peo ple and hundreds 'from Alabama are making a stiff fight for that route "It was a great convention, ' the greatest good roads convention I ex pect ever held in this state. The-en thusiasm was at a high pitch.- Of course some towns and counties and cities are going to be disappointed but every one that became Interested in this convention is certain to obtain some benefits from the movement. It wil stimulate enthusiasm for and Interest in the question of good roads throughout the states that were inter ested In the road. The attendance was large from all sections. "The Maury county delegation was an exceedingly strong one. It. was one of the largest from any one coun ty that attended the convention. It was a working crowd too, full of en thusiasm, determination and vim and decidedly improved the chances of this county. Our delegation worked hard and achieved a great thing when it landed J. J. Gray, of Maury county, on the state executive committee. He is one of the strongest men in the movement and will make his influence felt. Maury county has two chances out of four, because two of the four suggested would go through this county, but all the delegation stood solidly for the Florence and Mt. Pleas ant route." 1 , iiiui n hi finMiif MILU .uU i MR PiAN fOR THE FINAL SEIECIION OF ROUTE MEANS THAT THE LOGICAL LINE FOR THE ROAD WILL BE ADOPTED.

Chattanooga, Tenn esse i "The Plan finally decided upon for the selection of the route of"the pro posed Jackson Military Highway if one that should commend itself to ev ery fair and intelllgetn observer' said President Jos. F. Brownlow, of the Maury County Highway Associa tion, this morning. "In brief, the plan is simply this: The permanent organ ization, composed of the president and committees from each state, will select three pathfinders, who are to have no interest whatever in the lo cation of the route, and those three together with a United States civil engineer, will find and designate the route to be selected. The decision of this board will be final. It would not have been possible for the big mass convention at Nashville tohave de cided anything. It could not have reached any conclusion intelligently, It was just like a big political con ventlon In the old days of the mob mass meeting. The three pathflnd ers will go over and personally in spect each of the proposed routes looking at the bridges, the roads measuring the distance and In fact take everything into consideration before deciding. Yes, I am confident that Maury county will be on the route when finally selected because it is logical and natural that it should be. "I am very much gratified at the splendid manner in which the citizens of this county rallied to the conven tlon. We had a great delegation ur there and they made themselves felt. This convention shows what we can do when once we become aroused. I am sure that some of the good roads enthusiasm that was generated at the convention will prove quite an asset to the people In the construction and Improvement of the highways of the county. Every one will In time de rive some benefits from the conven tion. These meetings are a big In centive to progress." A WONDERFUL ANTSEPT1C Germs and infection aggregate ail ments and retard healing.
