Evening Ledger, of Yesterday.
An unusually large, aa well as orderly
and barmoniou?, meeting was held at
the Greenlaw Operhouse Saturday night
to appoint a city executive Democratic
meeting, wuica was uoue wnnout un
nece33sry de'ay. and the mte ing im
mediately adjourned. The committee
is composed of well-known citizens,wbo
are competent to conuuet a campaign.
The movement Is in the hands of the
people entirely, and weehall attempt
neither to hamper it with suggestions
nor anticipate it action. If. however,
the people manifest a3 much interest in
the primary meetings and the conven
tion as in tbe origin of tbe new move
ment, they can trust to the results. It
is not to be presumed that every one
present was thereby committed to what
ever might be done, for a number of Re
publicans were there; but the attendance
of so large a crowd of quiet, thoughtful
citizens shows that the people are alive
to their interests, and will rigidly scru
tinize every public step taken toward
the municipal election. They are not
so much concerned as to whether this
or that man shall draw the mayor's sal
ary, but as to how their affairs are to be
administered for the next two years. It
remains to be eeen what soit of men
will be elected delegates and who will
be nominated for mayor.
Avalanche of Sunday.
The Democratic meeting of last night,
at Greenlaw Opsrahouso, was more
moderate in its results than we expected
from the exclusive tone of the call limit
ing membership only to Democrats, and
more conservative than the action of
the eighth ward meeting, which points
to a reorganization of tite old order of
things when the party whip was cracked
furiously on every corner; when P. M.
Winters was a high priest in the party
and O'DonncU its representative. The
general conduct of tbe meeting was
directed by good sense, and animated
by a spirit to do tho best for the city.
The policy of conducting the munici
pal canvass on a parly basis, urith party
candidates, lo get possession of the city
by mere partisan leaders, is unwise, and
will be bad in its results to the commer
cial, mechanical and financial interests
of Memphis. There is no reasonable
came at this time for a party movement,
and we hope the good sense of the execu
tive committee, which is composed of
good members, if they will serve,
will recommend an enlargement of the
movement, to embrace all who desire
good government, and thus place the
candidate, if successful, beyond the reach
of obligations to cliques or rings, in or out
of the patty, that cannot be ignored, and
if regarded, will conflict with an honest
discharge tf official duties. In addition
to which it may be stated, as we go
along, that success under a party banner
is doubtful, and success under it is
not desirable. The distinguished
presiding officer of the meeting last
night, Mr. IS. M. Eitea, himself, is an
excellent authority on this point; be
presided more than two years ago in the
Greenlaw Operahouse over a reform
movement, deprecating mere pany
lines, and invoking the co-operation of
all citizens who were in favor of a
cheaper and better system of local gov
ernment. Hence we can see no reason
to reverse this opinion, and to stir up
antagonism and excite suspicion, unless
it be conceded and believed that meie
party triumph is worth more than the
prosperity of Memphis. Parly govern
ment of American cities ia the most
monstrous evil of tho day. For New
York it has accumu'ated a debt of one
hundred and fifty million dollars, the
interest of which is eleven million dol
lars annually; for Pniladelphia it has
made a debt of quite eigtity million dol
larsthe fitst under Democratic, the
last under Republican rule. In every
other city, from Chicago to New Or
ltnus, including Memphis, party rule
has been a machinery to eat up the sub
stance of the people. Possibly our city,
under inercjar& rule, may prove a sol-
itary example vf jjoliiicui virtue and
financial success, tut the experience of
the past unfortunately shows that the
good elements are elbowed out and the
bad ones lake control.

Owing to this fact we would advise the
