The morning was spent In hearing the reports ot delegates from over the state, and in arranging for the elec tion of officers which takes place about 6 o'clock this afternoon. The meetink this morning was most tion to increase, decrease, alter i or amand any bond issue for school or road purposes. ; . In other words the. meeting of the county court to be held will have its doors thrown open for the transaction of regular business. ,It was expected that the presenta tion of the report of the tax levy com mittee will precipitate a fight on the floor of the court. It is known that here are advocates of levying a higher rate for the coming year, while still others will fight for a reduction. Judge Whitthorne stated this morn ing to. a reuresentative of. The Herald that he was still undecided when the call would be made for the convening of the court. ; It is not unlikely that the meeting wil be held immediately after the No vember election.

I ani a candidate for the senate from this district and I ask your votes on Nov. 2. ; In the past twenty-four years Perry county has had the senator just twice; it has not had-the senator since 1908, a period of twelve years. Justice demands that it be given consideration. I have been unamiously endorsed by the democrats of my home county and by the democrats of Lewis county. Reliance is placed by my opponent on a rotation agreement which thetate committee of the democratic party, its highest party court in Tennessee, has only recently declared had been abrogated through party necessities. That committee took no action in the senatorial contest but gave me the same right to claim the democratic label that it gave my opponent. , ; . ' S(t,v.,:'; I am not the candidate of any faction or interest, but ; I yinvit an investigation of my record, public and private and if those who know, , me best do not recommend me, I shall not ask your votes. Perry county i3 surely entitled to fair play at the hands of the great county. of Maury. 1 " On your purely local aifairs, I will be governed by the judgment and wishes oi the two represen- , tatives from your county.Messrs Hill and Russell. They have fought out the local Issue before the people of Maury County and their platiorm has been approved: '1 have absolute confidence in their honesty, in tegrity and patriotism and on matters of legislation affecting Maury County I will co-operate with them. I approve of their method of drafting a road law for the county, which virtually commits that question to the people who are the source of all power, and I will join with Messrs Hill and Russell in placing on the statute books the law which the people of the county, through their chosen representatives, approve. '"'. "'" Every interest of Maury county will be safe in my hands. I have no enemies to punish or friends to reward, but ekpect as senator from this district to represent all the people. I am going to try to see as many voters of the county as possible but the time between tnow and the "election is short. I cannot hope to see you all. However, rest assured that your vote will be highly appreciated. '-' V . - " ' ',.

Eliminating every possible item, cut ting others below what some of , the committee and officials consider a re ally safe margin, the tax levy commit tee of the county court this morning agreed to recommend a levy of f 1.25 for the coming year. This would be equivalent to a levy of $2.45 on the old tax assessment or an increase of about twenty cents. The following funds were entirely eliminated in the. levy recommended by the committee: School building, state highway maintenance, and no provision Is made in the sinking fund to take rare of the principal or interest on the road issue of $300,001 that was authorized by the court at the lest session. The levy as 1 recommended by the committee is as follows: State, which includes state levy for schools," ' $0.32 County Proper ... .20 School common .. ... 29 Highway '. . .07 Sinking fund to take care of Inter est and bonds .' . ... .27 Bridges .05 High School 05 ; Total $1.23 Chairman English, of the commit tee urged that a higher rate be levied la order to take care of the school building, fund, to provide foi putting the county out of debt and to take care of principal and interest on all of the bonds, but the majority of the committee wanted to reduce the rate to the lowest possible point and final ly the report that will be made to the court will be unanimous. The roads will have less money than they had last year. The old rate is twenty cents for roads. On the new assassmerit it will take slightly over ten cents to raise as much money as the old rate raised. A rate, therefore, of seven cents will only secure iibout two-thirds of the money for roads that the county had the past year. i The entire committee was present except Squire Davis. The following members signed the report: Squires English, Hull, Guest and Denton.-!
