The West Tennessee Land Company leased Saturday, 7,000 acres of land to the Standard Oil Company, and within a week or ten days the first well will be sunk in the lake bottom to a depth of 4,000 feel in a search for oil. The prospects are rare, indeed, for striking oil, and if the venture Is successful if is believed that it will put an end for all time to come to the question of draining the lake, which question was undoubtedly at the bottom of the night rider troubles in Obion county. The lease was signed by J. W. Scott, general agent for the Standard Oil Company, and Judge Harris, as president and general manager for the land company. The 7,000 acres are located in the center and lower end of the lake, and the first well will be bored just off White's Landing, two miles from Tiptonville. The machinery has been ordered for the boring, and will arrive some time this week. The operations will be commenced at once. In speaking of the prospects for striking oil, Mr. Scott said : "I have tried out seventeen lakes formed by the earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 since I have been connected with the Standard Oil Company, and have struck oil in evefy one of tnem. 1 here is every reason to be lieve that we will be successful in boring wells in Reelfoot Lake. I cannot now say how many wells will be bored, but I know that the acreage covered by the lease signed Saturday will not be enough for us, if we are successful. The machinery is already on the way here, and we will start work at once. The first well will be sunk to a depth of feet. I think in that depth wc should strike a fine flow of oil." Mr. Harris is also very enthusiastic over the venture. Following the lead of his father, Col. John Harris, his pet scheme has been to eventually drain the lake. He declined to discuss this question Saturday, but intimated that if oil was struck the project would hardly be pushed any further. It Is the general opinion here however, that if oil is found there will be no further steps taken to drain the lake, at least not for many years to come. 4,-0- is under obliiralions to tia' prince of good fellows, Sher-i- 3 J T Seat, for special favors last Saturday evening.

Mrs. Ellen McClannahan died Tuesday night at her home east of Moscow and the burial took place Wednesday afternoon at Harmony. Mrs. McClannahan was in her 76th year and her death was caused by paralysis, though she had long been a sufferer of stomach trouble which hastened her death. She was the widow of Joe McClannahan, a well known citizen of that community who died in 1900. 'Her first hus band was a Mr. Stancil and her on ly living child is Cbas.

Its many Issues of securities, and Ita constant consolidation with allied undertakings, finally becomei an Instrument ao complex as to contain a greater number of elements that, under various Judicial decisions, lend themselves to fraud and oppression thnn any device yet evolved In the human brain, Corporations are necessary Instruments of modern business. They have been permitted to become a menace largely because the governmental representatives of the people have worked slowly In providing for adequate control over them. clustera of corporaOur great tions, huge trust and fabulously wealthy multimillionaires, employ the very best lawyer they can obtain to pick flaws In statutes after their paasage; but they also employ a class of secret agenta who seek, under the advice of experts, to render hostile leglsla.lon Innocuous by mnklng It unconstitutional, often through the Insertion of what appear on their face tn be drastic and sweeping provisions against the Interesta of the parties Inspiring them; while the demagogues, the corrupt creatures who Introduce blackmailing achemes to "strlllo" corporatlona. and all who demand extreme, measures, radical, and undesirably show themselves to be the worst enemies of the very public whose loudmouthed champions they profess to be. Ileal damage has been done by the manifold and conflicting Interpretations ot the Interstate commerco law. Control over the great corporations doing Interstate business can be effective only It It Is vetted with full power In an administrative department, a branch of the federal executive, carrying out a federal law; It can never be effective If a divided responsibility Is left In both the states and the nation; It can never be effective If left In the hand ot the courts to be decided by lawsuits. " Respect for Law Must Be Upheld. The courts hold a place ot peculiar and deserved sanctity under our form of government. Iletpect for the law I essential to the permanence of our Institutions, and respect for the law Is largely conditioned upon respect for the courts. It Is an offense against the republic to any anything which Can weaken this respect, save for the gravest reason and In the moat carefully guarded manner. In no other nation In the world do the courts power wield audi vast and as In the United States. All that is necessary Is that tha courts a a whole should exercise thla power with the wladom already ahown by thoae Judgea who scan the future while they act In the present I.et them exercise thla great power not only honestly and bravely, but with wlae Inalght Into the needs and fixed purposes of the people, so that they may do Justice, and work equity, eo that they may protect all persona In their rights, and yet break down the barriers of privilege, which Is the foe ot light should be erected agalnat Its abuse. est Is results that of a perIn aubatanre. provision ahould be made manent commission authorized to that no Injunction or temporary rethe work of alt the government straining order Issue otherwise than on departments relating to waterways, and notice, except where Irreparable Injury to fin nm nnd supervise the execution ot would otherwise xerult; nnd-lsuch rase a comprehensive plan. Under such'- a a heating on the merits of the order commission the actual work nf construcahould be had within n short fixed petion might be entrusted to the reclamariod, and. If not then continued after tion service, or tn the military engineers henrlnif, It should forthwith Inpae. aetlnj with a sufficient number of civilishould be rendered Immediately, ans to continue the work In time of war; and Ihe chance nf delay minimized In or It might be' divided between the recevery way. Moreover, I believe that the lamation service and the corps of proeednre should bo sharply defined, and I'unds should be provided from the Judge, required minutely to state tho urrent revenues If It Is deemed wise particulars both of hi action and of hi therwlse from the sale of bonds. The reasons therefor) so that the congress ssentlsl thing Is that the work should can If It desire examine and Investigate go forward under the bet poiMMe plan, the same. and with the least possible delay, Tha time for playing with our waterways Is past. The country demands results, Tho president urges that national parks adjacent to national forests bo placed under tho control of tho .forest service of tho agricultural department; ho nlso points out tha benefits derived from puro food legislation. Tho message, continues: Needs of the Secret Service. Iist year nn amendment was Incorporated In the measure providing for the secret service, which provided that there should be no detail from the secret service nnd no transfer therefrom. The amendment In question was ot benefit to no one excepting to criminals, and It seriously hampers the government In the detection of crime nnd tho securing of Justice. The chief argument In favor of the provision was that congressmen the did themnot selves wish tn be Investigated by the secret service men. Very little of such Investigation has been done In the past; but It Is true that the work of the secret service agents was partly responsible for the Indictment and conviction of a senator and a congressman for land frauds In Oregon. I do not believe that It Is In the public Interest to protect criminals any branch of the public service, and In exactly as we have again and again during tha past seven years prosecuted and convicted such criminals who were In the executive branch of the government, so In my belief we should bo given ample means to prosecute them If found in the legislative branch, nut It this Is not considered desirable a special exception could be made In the law prohibiting the use of the secret service force In Investigating member of the congress. Postal Savings Banks. I ngtln renew my recommendation for postal savings banks, for depositing savings with the security of the government behind them. The object Is to encourage thrift and economy In the wage-earnand person ot moderate means. It Is believed that In the aggregate vast sums of money would be brought Into circulation through the Inot the postal savings strumentality Parcel Post. In my last annual message I compostmaster-general's the mended recommendation for an extension of the parcel post on the rural routes. The establishment of a local parcel post on rural routes would be to tho mutual benefit ot the farmer and the country storekeeper, and It Is desirable that the routes, serving more than IS, 000,000 people, should be utilized to the fullest practicable extent. Education. With the limited means hitherto provided, the bureau of e ducatlon has rendered efficient service, but the has neglected to adequately supply the bureau with means to meet the educational growth of the country. I earnestly recommend that this unfortunate state ot affairs as regards the national educational office be remedied by adequate appropriations. This recommendation Is urged by the representative ot our common schools and great state universities and the leading educators, who all unite In requesting favorable consideration nnd action by the congress upon this subject Tho president points out the necessity of better organization of the various bureaus responsible for tho public health, and urges tho placing of all soldiers' homes under tho Jurisdiction of the war department. Statehood. On the question ot statehood the president says': I advocate the Immediate admission of New Mexico and Arizona as states. This shquld be done at the present session ot the congress. The people of the two territories have made It evident by their votes that they will not come In as one state. Tho only alternative Is to admit them as two. and I trust that this will be done without delay. con-gre- bank. Forest Preservation. If there la any one duty which more than another we owe It to our children to perform at once. It Is to save til. forests of thla country, for they constitute tho first and most Important element In tho conservation of tho natural resources ot the country. . . . Just as a former, after all hi life making his living from Ills farm, will. It he Is an expert farmer, leave It as an asset of Increased value to his son, so we should leave our national domain to our children, Increased In value and not worn out. There are email aectlona of our own country. In the east and In the west, In the Adirondack, the Whlto mountains and the Appalachians, and In tha Kocky mountains, whero we can already see for ourselves the damage In the ahapo of permanent Injury to the aotl and the river systems which comet from reckless deforestation. It matters not whether this deforestation la due to the actual reckless cutting of timber, to the fires that Inevitably follow such reckless cutting of timber, or to reckless and uncontrolled grating, especially by the great migratory bands ot sheep, the unchecked wandering ot which over the country means destruction to forests and the dltastrr to the small settlers ot limited means. to our own recklessness Thanks In the ute of our splendid forests, we have already crossed the verge of a timber famine In this country, and no noasureH that we now take can, at leaat for many years, undo the mischief that haa ulready been done. Hut we can prevent further mischief being done; and It would bo In tha highest degree reprehen-slbl- u to let any consideration of temporary convenience or temporary cost Interfrre with such action, especially as regards the national forests which the nation can now, at this very moment, control. The leston ot deforestation In China Is a lesson which mankind should have learned many times already from what has occurred In other places.

Plea for Inland Waterways. Action should be begun forthwith, during the preaent session ot tha congress, for the Improvement of our Inland waterwaywhich will result In giving s-action us not only navigable but navigated rivers. Until the work of river Improvement Is undertaken In a modern way It can not have result that will meet tha needs ot plan The this nation. modern Which promises tho but and quick home-makerrock-wast- I call the attention of tho congress to the Importance of the problem of the nshertes In the Interstate waters. On the we are now, under the very Great wise treaty ot April 11 ot this year, endeavoring to como to an International agreement for the preservation and satisfactory use of the fisheries of these waters which can not otherwise be achieved. Ijike Erie, for example, has the richest fresh water fisheries In the world; but It Is now controlled by the statutes of two nations, four states, and one province, and this province by two different ordinances In different counties. All these political divisions work at cross and In no case can they achieve protection to the fisheries, on the one hand, and justice to the localities and Individuals on tho other. Foreign Affairs. This nation's foreign policy Is based theory that right must be done on the between nations precisely as between Individuals, and In our actions for tho last ten years we have In this matter proven our faith by our deeds. We havo behaved, and are behaving, towards other nations, as In private life an honorable man would behave toward hi fellows, Republics. The commercial and material progn ress of the 20 republics Is worthy of the careful attention nf tho congress. The International Ilureau ot the American Itepubllcs Is doing a useful work tn making these nations and their resources better known to us, and In acquainting them not only with no as a people and with our purposes towards them, but with what we have to exchange for their goods. Panama Canal. The work on the Panama canal Is being done with a speed, efficiency and entire devotion to duty, which make It n model for all work of the kind. The men on the Isthmus, from Col, Ooethals and his fellow commissioners through the entire list of employes who aro faithfully doing their duty, have won their right to the ungrudging respect und gratitude of tho American people. Ocean Mall Lines. I again recommend the extension of ao that satis, the ocean mall act of factory American ocean mall lines to America, Asia, the Philippines, South and Australasia may be established. Hawaii. I call particular attention to the Territory of Hawaii. The Importance of those island Is apparent, and the need ot Improving their condition and developing their resources Is urgent. The Philippines. Heal progress toward Is beliis made In the Philippine Islands. 1 trust that within a generation the tlm will arrive when the Philippines can decldo (or themselves whether It is s. n Latin-America- Interstate Fisheries.

In Cuba eur occupancy win cease In Cubans about two months' time; the have In orderly manner elected their own governmental authorities, and the Island will bo turned over to them. Our occupation on this occn'slan has lasted a little over two years, and Cuba ho thriven and prospered under It. Our earnest hope snd one deslro Is that the people of the Island shall now govern themselves with Justice, so that peace and' order may be secure. Japanese Exposition, The Japanese government has postponed until 1817 the date of the great International exposition, the action being taken eo as to Insure ample time In which to prepare to make tho exposition all that It should be made. The American commissioners have visited Japan and thn postponement wilt merely give ampler opportunity for America tn be represented nt the exposition. Not since the first International exposition has there been one of greater Importance than this will he, marking, ns It does, the fiftieth nnnlversnry ot the asbenslon to the throne of the emperor of Japan. The extraordinary leap to the foremost place among the nations nf the world made by Japan during this halt century Is something unparalleled In all previous history. I take this opportunity publicly to state my appreciation of the way In which In Japan, In Australia, In New Zealand, and In all the states ot South America, the battle fleet haa been re ceived on Its practice voyage around the world. The American government cap not too strongly express Its appreciation nf the abounding and generous hospitality shown our ships In every port they visited. The Army. As regards the army I call attention to the fact that while our Junior officers and enlisted men stand very high, the present system of promotion by seniority results In bringing Into th higher grades many men of mediocre capacity who have but a short time to serve. So mnn should regard It as his vested right to rise to the highest rank In tho army any more than In any other profession. It Is a curious and by no means creditable fact that there ahould be so often a failure on the part of the public and Its representatives to understand the great need, from the standpoint of the service and the nation, of refusing to promote respectable, elderly Incompetent. The higher places should be given to the most deserving men without regard to seniority; at least seniority should be treated as only one consideration. In the stress of modern Industrial competition no business firm oould succeed If those responsible for Its management were chosen simply on the ground that they were the oldest people In Ita employment; yet this Is the course advocated as, regards the army, and required by law for all grades except those of general officer. Aa a matter ot fact nil ot the best officers In the highest ranks ot the nrmy are those who have attained their present position wholly or In part by a process of selection. The scope of retiring boards should be extended ro that they could consider general unfitness to command for any cause. In order to secure a far mora rigid enforcement than at present In the elimination of officers for mental, physical or temperamental disabilities. But this plan Is recommended only It the congress doe not see fit to provide what In my Judgment ts far better, that Is, for selection In promotion, and for elimination for age. Officers who fall to attain a certain rank by a certain age. should be retired for Instance. If a man should not attain field rank by tho time he Is 45 he should of course be placed on the retired list General officers should 'be selected as bt present, and ot the other promotions should be made by selection, the selection to be made by the president 'or secretary ot war from a list of at least two candidates proposed for each vacancy by a board of officers from the arm of the service from which tho promotion Is to be made. A bill Is now before the congress having for Its object to secure the promotion of officers to various grades at reasonable ages through a process of selection, by boards of officers, of tho least efficient for retirement with a percentage of their pay depending upon length ot service. The bill, although not accomplishing all that should be done. Is a long step In the right direction; and I earnestly recommend Its passage, or that of more completely effective measure. National Guard, Now that the organized mllltla, tha National auard, has been Incorporated with the army as a part of the national forces. It behooves the government to do every reasonable thing In Us power to perfect Its efficiency. It should be assisted In Its Instruction and otherwise aided more liberally than heretofore. Tho continuous services ot many d regular officers will be A essential In this connection, bill Is now pending before the congress creating a number ot extra officers In tho army, which If passed, as It ought to be, will enable more officers to be trained as Instructors ot National Guard and assigned to that duty. In case ot war It will be ot tie utmost Importance to have a large number of trained officers to use for turning raw levies Into good troops. The Navy. I approve the recommendations ot general board for tha Inthe crease of the navy, calling especial attention to the need ot additional destroyera and colliers, and above all. ot the four battleships. It ts desirable to completo as soon as possible o squadron of eight battleships of the best existing type. I most earnestly recommend that th general board be by law turned Into a general staff. There Is literally no whatever for continuing tha preaent bureau organization of th navy, Th navy should be treated as a purely military organization, and everything should be subordinated to the on object ot securing military efficiency. "A system ot promotion by merit, either by selection or by exclusion, or by both processes, should be Introduced. It It out of the question, If the preaent principle ot promotion by mere seniority I kept, to expect to get the best results from th higher officers. Our men com too old, and stay for too short a time, la th high fonimond positions. Nothing better for th navy from every standpoint haa ever occurred than the cruise ot th battle tleet around th world. The Improvement ot the ships In every way has been extraordinary, and they havo gained far mora experience In battle tactics than they would have gained If they had stayed In the Atlantic waters. The American people have cause for profound gratification, both In view ot the excellent condition ot the feet as ahown by this crulae, and In view ot the Improvement the crulae has worked In this already high condition. I do not believe that there Is any other service In tha world In which the average of character and efficiency In the enlisted men la us high ss Is now the case In our own. T1IKODOHK IIOOSEVELT.

It claims that over J00 more votes were polled in the sheriff's race than were cast for Bryan for president. This contention may be true but under the party laws we do not believe the committee recently elected have any right at this late day to go into the boxes at all, unless so ordered to do by some court proceedure. And we do not even believe the; courts have a right to interfere. The party law passed at the recent state convention says on this subject: "In case ot the contests arising from primary elections held to nominate candidates for county offices, the county central committee trying such contests, shall, upon application in writing, of not less than ten per cent of the Democratic voters participating in such primary in one precinct open the ballot box, used in and count ballots such precinct Prettu Christmas Gift -- i j ra vi -- r 1 Hsighw rctuincd Saturday t ...u, i WUCiC lie ua s'in., 1 1 ot his A' uaugtner. t w-n- er cue nf rnulo 2 nnl.rt r.t to his ion, Jno.

The love that you are born to is the sweetrst that you will ever have on earth. You, who are anxious toes. cape from the home nest, pause a moment and remember that this is so. It is right that the hour should come when you in your time should become a wife and mother and give the best love to others, but that will be just it. Nobody, not a lover, nor a husband, will ever be so tender or so true as your father or mother. Never again after strangers have broken the beautiful bond, will there be anything so sweet as the little home circle of mother, father and children, where you were cherished, praised, protected and kept from harm. You may not know it now but you will know it some day. whomsoever you marry, true and good though he may be, will, after the lover days are over and the honeymoon has waned, give you only what you deserve of love or sympathy, and usually much less, never more.
