TO THE REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL Due to His Efforts More Amicable Re ' tatlons Established Between Amer , leans and the People of Latin Amer ican Republics. One of the sinal honors that have been conferred on Admiral Caperton, the distinguished son of Maury coun ty, has Just come to light here. That was his apointment last year as the special representative of President Woodrow Wilson with the rank of "Ambassador Exraordinary and Pleni potentiary" to attend the ceremonies incident to the inaguration of Dr. Francisco de Paula Rodrlques Alves as president of the republic of Brazil. ' The commission s signed personal ly by President Wilson and recites that he reposes "special trust and con lidence In the prudence, ability and integrity of Rear Admiral Caperton." During his time spent in the South ern waters of the Atlantic Admiral Caperton had a very delicate and at times difficult task. How well he dis charged It was testified to by the rep resentative citizens of Soth America Tfvhen he was called home.

THE SUNDAY CLOSING LAWS Will Discuss Matter With Business Men of City Before Announcing Pol icy New Board Will Continue Im provement of Streets. Quite a number of changes will be made in the conduct of municipal af fairs when the installation of the new ly elected board of mayor and alder men takes place in January. This morning in conversation with a Her ald reporter, Mayor-elect W. O. Cher ry said in substance "Economy will be the watchword of the new adminis tration. The very first thing we in tend to do is to have the books of the city audited, and while I think everything is perfectly straight, I be lieve the city is deeply in debt, and we will be compelled to retrench wherev er possible, as this indebtedness must be retired as soon as possible and practical. After it is known what the collec tions will aggregate, then our budget will be made in accordance, and we will live strictly within that budget. Asked concerning the policy of the board as to the continu ance of street paving, Mr. Cherry said: "It will be our policy to continue to improve the streets, but it is likely that we will discontinue the use of as phalt, for there is something wrong with that, it is not giving the service it should, but our policy will be bet ter streets for less money. "During the winter months I will do the street inspecting myself, and we will save the salary of the street in spector for at least three or four months at $S3 per month. Of course It will be necessary to have an inspec tor when spring comes again, bue we will have made a little saving in this department" Concerning the Sunday closing law Mr. Cherry said he intended to con sult the lpading business men here and obtain their views, but there was one thing he was positive on, and that was that all business houses must be closed during church hours, or from 10 o'clock Sunday morning until 1 o'clock In the rfternoon. Mr. Cherry Baid it is likely the garages will be made to close just as the drug stores and other places of business. He said he could see no more harm in buying a cigar than in buying ten gallons of gasoline for a joy ride. Then, too, there is a certain class of people who are able to buy drinks and cigars at all times of the day Sunday, while oth ers are not. Mr. Cherry said that he did hot believe in this distinction be ing made. The Sunday closing law he said is but a relic of the old days when the open saloon was here, and laws were made to see that the Balloons closed, even the combination grocery and saloon. The changes in the law have not kept pace with the changing times, and no mention whatever is made of garages, soft drink ' stands and other places of business which were unknown when the' law was framed. Mr. Cherry said he had visit ed a number of local business men al ready, and had found a sentiment fa voring Sunday opening, but before any fixed policy is announced, other busi ness men will be interviewed. Law enforcement will be another forte, of the incoming administration. Mr. Cherry said that he would have police powers after his 'inauguration as mayor, and would be with the po lice force until "bed time" each night. Merciless publicity is advocated by Mayor-elect Cherry for the cure of most evils. He said it was his pur pose to give the public due notice of all arrests, either rich or poor, white or black. No matter if the richest man of the city is arrested for non ob servance of the traffic regulations it will be promptly reported, just as if he were a negro laborer. SENATORS WILL DEFEAT MR.

The Jain Temple at Calcutta is built chefiy of white marble and every square foot of the surface is decorated as if it were a jewel box. Although It Is Understood That Me Kellar Will Back Albright for the Place Friends of Witt Here Are Very Much Interested. Of great interest here where he has hundreds of .friends will be the an nouncement contained in Washington dispatches to the effect that the sen ators from Tennesse will defeat the confirmation of George B. Witt to be marshal for this division. It is stat ed that both Senators Shields and McKellar will oppose confirmation of Mr. Witt, which will of course defeat him. - Mr. Witt was appointed on the re commendation of his old classmate at Culleoka, Former Attorney General Watt Gregory. Both the senators had made other recommendations and they are said to have been greatly chagrinned when the appointment of Mr. Witt was announced, although he gave each of them loyal support. Mr.1 Witt is a member of the democratic state committee and in the last cam paign supported both Senator Shields and Got. Roberts,, but this fact does not appear to have any weight with Senator Shields or Senator McKellar. It is understood that when the nom ination of Mr. Witt is repected by the senate, Senator Shields will insist on the appointment of Vernor Sharp, of Nashville, while Mr. McKellar will advocate his former campaign manag er. Editor Ed Albright, of Gallatin, for the same place. Belief is general that they will finally agree on Senator Shields choice and that the plum will go to Sharp. Maury county had an active appli cant for the place before Mr. Witt was appointed in the person of ex- Sheriff Claude Godwin, but the lat ter Is no longer pushing his claims but is preparing to enter the milling busi ness. Mr. Witt qualified under a re cess appointment about nine months ago and has been serving since. In more than half the states of the United States the law gives full own ership of the child to the father. CAPPER PREDICTS A BIG REDUCTION III WHEAT CROP SAYS FARMER WILL NEVER AF FILIATE WITH FEDERATION OF LABOR. EVER INCREASING COST IS CAUSE Farm Machinery Much Higher Re turned Soldiers Will Not Resume Farm Work May Expect Higher Bread Prices Next Year. (By United Press.) WASHINGTON, Nov. 17. Farmers are having their trobles, too. Indications point to greatly reduced crops next year because of this dis content, according to Senafor Capper, of Kansas, publisher of several agri cultural papers. Farmers are not planning to strike exactly, but there is a general expecta tion that acreage will be greatly re duced, Capper said in an interview late yesterday. Low profits, labor shortages, high wages and rising costs of implements are some of the reasons assigned. "The American farmer won't go on strike, but he is getting mighty sul len," Capper declared. "Wheat acre age will fall off "probably one-third next year and the general crops are going to be smaller. "I don't think there is any concerted movement among the farmers along this line. No farm organization so far as I know has adopted resolutions urging a deliberate curtailing of pro duction. But nevertheless farmers are individually sizing up the situa tion and are deciding to go slowly next year. "I receive many letters dally from farmers, complaining about nearly ev erything. Hog prices are down, wheat will probably be lower next year, while labor costs are going up." Ex soldiers are refusink to go back to the farms and are flocking to the cities, Capper asserted. During wheat harvest it is almost impossible to get help, he stated. The farmer Is there fore turning from wheat to corn and other crops which do not require har vesting during a short period In the middle of the summer. He is distrib uting his crops so that he can do most of the work alone. Herald Cheap Coiiuqn Ait Pat. W. J.
