Judge Wigg3, of Perry ocunty, will act in complete harjnony with the rep resentatives from Maury county on local affairs, if he should be elected to the state senate on November 2.

The Perry county candidate also is sued a reply to the claim that the ro tation agreement alleged to have been adopted In 1912 and under which it is claimed Maury county names the sen tjtorj this year.

HAMPSHIRE BRIDGE OPENJO TRAFFIC CONCRETE STRUCTURE TAKES PLACE OF ONE COUNTY TRUCK t WENT THROUGH. -..Work cn the concrete bridge over the Mt. Pleasant to Hampshire pike has been completed. The bridge is now open to traffic. rhis was the bridge that went down hjfst'sprlng when the county tru'clt went through It. But County Engineer Butler has a bridge in its place- that will not go down un der any Joad, at least until long after this generation has gone. All of the bridges and many of the culverts that have been constructed in the couuty in recent years, have been of concrete and it will therefore be practically everlasting without any maintenance charge ef consequence. It, of course, entails a heavy additional charge to use concrete, but in the end it is bet te;: and cheaper.

From Wednesday's Dally Herald. To an audierimo that filled the New Grand to 11$ capacity this afternoon Governor Albert H. Roberts presented his plea for reelection and also for the support of the democratic party in this campaign. The audience was gen erally responsive and many of the gov ernor's telling points were liberally applauded. It was'equaly as large as the great crowd that heard the candi date here In the race foithe nomina tion last July and almost if not quite as eptjiusiastic. The stage was crowd ed with prominent men and women, there 'being several Confederate sol diers .in the lot. ! !' i- br. : . In tho audience there was unfair sprinkling of the women kit the men still compose the vast majority of the political audiences of this' county. Very few' present were not voters. At first the Governor's voice was husky from the strain 'of constant speech making, but he soon warmed up and the audience warmod to him. Gov. Roberts speech was substantial ly that which he delivered at other points over the state and little new matter was injected into the-first i art of it. The speech was in the. main a defense of. the tax system and fiscal policies of the state. It was an ardent appeal to the democrats oftht county to stand liy tho faith of the fathers and suport the principles on which the na tion was founded. He said at the out set that he had no apologies to offer. The governor was presented in an el oquent speech; by Hon, AV.

I 2 As the democratic nominee of Mau ry couuty for. this district, I want to say to the voters of the district that I stand upon the platform upon which I received the nomination in Maury county at the August primary, viz: The repeal of the present road law for Maury county including wheel tax, the amendment of the tax law to make it equal to all classes of property both real and personal, and to fairly and justly distribute and equalize the. bur den of taxation upon proporty of cveiyi kind and description. . Hi- ... I favor a road law for Maury .county that will do away with the present commission system, dnd that will place the road management of tho county in the hands of your county, judge, a road superintendent and dis trict commissioners. If you elect mo I shall, with the assistance of compe tent road men draft such a law and submit it to you for your approval. I claim this nomination under the following agreement which is the last and only agreement entered into by the organized democracy of the dis trict. I never heard of any other agreement, or any abrogation of this agreement, until the opposition to me from the present road board of Maury county claimed before the state 'com mittee, that there was a verbal agree ment entered Into by certaiupoliti cica! leaders with an independent can didate for tho senate, which agree ment, if there was one, fined no cer tain timo for Us fulfillment and no defi nite time for it to begin. , The follov Ing Is the original agreement: "Be it resolved by the democratic senatorial convention in meeting as sembled at 'Hohenwald on the 12th, 191 That whereas, there is some confu siou in the party on the question of the rotation of the nomination of ihe candidate for senator from the 20th senatorial district, and whereas. It l desired to fix rotation agreement for such nominations from time to time. Therefore, be it re.nolved. that said rotation agreement be made and fixed as follows: 4 ll That the candidate for said of fice for 1913 be and the same is hereby conceded to Lewis county. (2) That the candidate for said officetor 1S17 be and the same is here hv rnneeiioil in Pr-rrv rountv. Ci) That the candidate for said of fice for 1919 and 1921 be and the same is hereby conceded to Maury county. (4.) That the said rotation agree ment then proceed in the above or der, i. e., once for Lewis, once for Perry and twice for Maury. Be it further resolved, that tho can-" didate to be selected under this agree ment shall bo selected by the county entitled to samo Under this agreement, in any , manner that- the democratic executive committee of said county W4jt"l(ft; sanit whtMsaid nomination m Widd W the ?eWiptju as aforesaid, said .nomination to" be for the entire district, and to be acquiesced in by the other counties of the district." (Signed) ' ; 1 A. if. WIGGS, Chairman of Dem. Ex. Oom. of Perry Co. J. B. BOND, Chairman. W. W. O'GUINN, Secretary. My oponcnt has never denied or ex plained away tho present agreement, under same Perry county lost her time to Lewis county and has never mado claim for the place until this present road board of Maury county got Into the game aud brought out a candidate who claims "as a matter of justice Perry county should have this partic ular time. If Perry county "lost her day in 'court" and passively permitted Lewis county to take her turn, and, since that time has never made a claim to same it surely at this particu lar timo is not "a matter of Justice." but rather a political move on the part of the present managers of this road board of Maury county to retain their hold upon the long suffering people of Maury county. In view of the publish ed statements of their candidate, and his refusal before the state committee to abide theij . finding if in opposition to his claims, it is a self-evident prop osition that he started out to make this race IN DEPENDENT of any agrcemcnf that. was adverse to his candidacy, but rather under the su pervision of the ROAD BOARD from Maury county. The time is short and I will be una ble to personally see all the voters of the district. If you elect me, I will promise to devo'e my time and abili ty o the passage of such measures as will he for the good of the people of the distrjet and the state of Tennes see. Your trnly, taJui n.
