First It gives ill outlet to vast
quantities of cotton and corn annually
raised in the country tributary to Baia
Second As a former citizen of your
city I would like to ecj this produce
marketed in Memphis', which will be
done when Little river is rendered
navigable, rather than see it sent to St.
Louis, the only available market now,
necessitating the hauling by wagons to
the' Texas and St. Louis railroad, a
distance of thirty or forty miles.
Any of your old merchants (I recall
now, Stratton, Ooyer A Co., Tate, Gill
& Able, the Lnwensteins, Walker
Bros. & Co., Hill, Fontaine A Co.,
Langley & Gay, aud many others)
doubtless remember the large tra le
obco enjoyed bjr your city from the
upper Sc. Francis and Little rivers.
Navigation once opened between
the points first mentioned, there
would be, as carefully estimated, ship-
Eed from Hornerville alone, 50 V0

Dba.b Sir We believe the system of
railroads interested in tbe transports
tion of grain south of the Ohio river
and its distribution in the South and
Southeast have agreed to pool the buei
ness and that said pool will be made
on a basis of the present tan 11 rates.
The movement of grain into the
Southeast ior the past sixty days
demonstrates beyond question tnat il
the existing rates are to be adhered to
Memphis cannot sell -that section, for
during toe period mentioned our mar
ket has been unusually low when
compared with other markets that
were supplying the tra le in question.
but still we could not obtain an order
We are unable to accurately estl
mate the effect of pooling the rates on
a basis of the existing tariff, for the
reason that we do not know tbat tne
rates now in force have been main
tained only by the Louisville and
Nashville and Memphis aud Charles
ton railroads on shipments Irom Mem
phis proper. Our information is that
the officials of tbe East Tennessee, V ir
ginia and Georgia svstem believe that
all shipments over competing lines are
oavins lull Una rate6 : tnev are in a
position to and should know the facts,
and irom ineir standpoint it is mani
test tbat spool based on open rates
now in force will certainly preclude
the idea of Memphis competing for the
We would therefoie suggest that
the Exchange take prompt and formal
action rrgaiding the matter, and that
we shonld SDntal to the managers of
the Eart Tennessee. Virginia and

The tendency of the time seems to

churches show a growing disposition

the amicahle toleration of differences
in doctrine. This rebult is in a large

Cloeolv associated with ttie name
and labor of Mr. Moody in evangelical
work is Ira 1). Sankev. the popular
ainger of ra) gious mil dies, of whom
the Appeal kave sketch yesterday.
Some further points about bil
career are given bflow. Mr.
Sankey was born in Edinburg, Pa., in
1840. lie early developed a love ior
music, and. being the possessor of a
sweet voice, he was eagerly sought lor
at political meetings and public en
tertainmentfl. He became lender of
the cheir in the httle village church,
and from there bis reputation as a
sineer widened not 1 he was therecip-
luLt ot innumerable invitations u at
tend musical conventions and religious
meetings. His connection wit a the
Young Men's Christian Association
li him to a national convention of
that association at Indianapolis,
Ind., where he first mot Mr.
Moodv. The latter was imme-
diatelv. charmed with his . voice,
and realizing the powerful aid
he might bet) him in his work, h a
beean t oersuale him tigive up tbe
business he was engaged in and ac
company him in his mission work.
Aftir long ect catiea Mr. Sankey
yielded, and has aince become firaoua
as the ' singing eva-igeliit" the world
over. Their first mentions were fir
t iro or three years held in Chicago and
other American cities, titer which, in
1873, tbey paid their firtt visit to Eng
land. There their success waa re
markable. Their audiences pac'sed
the largest balls obtainable.
' Tbey have ainced visited nearly
all ti the principal cities cf the Union
and several times revisited Europe
and met with success everywhere.
Mr. Sankey, nt.f jitunately,. is not as
rugged as Tie once was,. and during
their recent trip t Europe it was
faared he wouli bicuk down com

THE RECEIVER RETIRED,
Judge Jere Baxter Revoke Ills For
Tbe emphle, Itlrsnlaahass aad At

Bald Knott Itraara.
The United States Court-room was
crowded yeaterday with lawyers and
railroad men, anxioua to hear what
the Court would decide in tbe matter
of the Memphis, Selma and Brunswick
Railroad Company. Those who knew
all the facts in the case, and knew
Judge Baiter's lova of justice and his
contempt for anything with the least
color of chicanery, felt pretty sure Uiat
he would revoke his former action
noon a rehearing of the case. Jndge
Hammond aat with Jndge Baxter,
who came in from Knoxville on the
6 o'clock train. As soon as conrt waa
opened Mr. King of the firm of Cal
houn & King, representing the GuMp
an tee Trust and Safe Deposit Cedap
pany, began the reading of tha bill,
synopsis of which has already been
given in the Appeal. He also read
the amended bill filed alnce the atop
order waa granted by Jndge Ham
mond. THE AMENOr.D BILL.
The amended bill recites the fact i of
tbe organization of tne company, the
various futile attempt? made to build
it, and its final sale under a foreclosure
mortfewe. Thettiryof Wo'.fle's o in-
net tion with the scheme nf.er the fail
ure ct Bnsby and ethers is then re
ctd at lergth.
Coming down to Mr. Itewman fcrb s
eonnett'oa with the road as receiver,
the bill saya that officer, before a sale
which wm attempted before his ap
pointment, Green, Hamilton & Co.,
Newman Erb aad Dunavant A Kelly
conceived a scbeme.the objet tol which
was t defraud all the creditors and
stockholders of the Railroad Commis
sion except thoee
IN SYMPATHY WITH THH BCUIMBS,
and turn the property over to patties
ho would enter with them Into the
scheme and complete the road tq Hol
ly Springs. Shoitly afterward New
man .rb was appotrjttti provisional
receiver, and he aubmit'ed a report,
saying it would require 130,000 to pnt
tbe toid then mini in repair. raiu
Dunavant was preseLt in couitwhen
the report wai real, and also heard
the dec.-ee, b:ned on a compromise, to
which complainant never consented.
On the ol trary, Minor Meriwether,
attorney (r Voli and the railway
compitay, atat)d in open court that
his client I
KNEW NOTHING Ot THE COMPROMISE
and had not consented t it. The coa
fact with Dunavant &. Kelly for
bnilding the road waa afterward ap
proved by the courts, though not in
accordance with the decree, Dunavant.
Piper &. Kelly setting the whole of
the $300,000, which was tbe limit for
building and equipping the road and
paying what waa due by it to the
Kansas City road. It was Greatly in
excesa of the mtual cost of construc
tion, and was paid in furtherance of a
scheme U defraud other creditors.
Erb went into court from time to time
and got various ordera and obtained
advances from the contractors for
rolling stock, to that at tbe time the
road waa accepted by the court aa
completed, instead of there being an
indebtedness of the line of $500,000,
as contemplated by the alleged con
sent decree, there waa
AN ADDITIONAL lHDEIITKIlNKSS
of $50,000, also the debt due the Kan
sas City tail way. After the loidwas
accepted by the court, Erb and others,
for the purpose of forestalling opposi
tion to their scheme, inked Wolffe
what be proposed to do. He raid he
intended to resist their scheme of re
organization. Erb, Hill tbe receiver,
btdadto Wolffe tbat they might pro
vide for him ; that they knew he La 1
lost a great dial of money in the en
terprise, and that if he would nego
t'a'e loans for the com pit tion of the
read, the mortgage might be increased
from the authoriasd $15,000 to $20,000.
and Wolfie'a claims might be satifled
out of the additional bonds. " They re
turned to Memphis, promising Diet

Erb, for himself and associates, while
he was receiver, purchased the certitl

cents on the dollar. Erb and his asso

the certificates except a few thousand
dollars, and in this way outlined con

The bill further charges tbat Erb,
while receiver of the Memphio, Selma
and Brunswick and also attorney rf
the Kansas City, Springfield and
Memphis, deeded valuable privileges,
terminal facilities and righta of way

TBI APPLICATION REFUSED.
Mr. Kinr remarked, at the conclu
sion of the reading of the bill, that the
Draver was the usual one, and some
colhonv then ensued between him
and the judges, which waa listened to
with siience by the attorneys on the
other side. Judge Baxter and Judge
Hammond held a tmel conierence,
Judge Baxter, without waiting to hear !
from 'Col. Gantt, said tbat the bill j
showed on its face that the plaintiff
was a oartv to the proceedings in tbe
court at Oxford, Miss., and if he had
not been would, no doubt, upon tbe
allegations made in 'the bill, be en
titled to relief. As shown by the bill,
there were taany grounds for relief
and some suspicion of rascality. But
the remedy of plaintiff was in the
court in Mississippi, either by appeal
or by a bill cf review, and this court
could not undertake to pass upon the
orders made by Jndge Hill, whose
court had co-ordinate jurlediction, and
the only source of relief lay in the Su
preme Court. It might be, Judge Eas
ter went on to say, that some
of the orders made by the Mississippi
court were illegal, but all tbe proceed
ings were not )oid and he could not
undertake to assert that any of them
were so. It waa clear, at any race,
tbat this court could afford no relief.
The plaintiff might dismiss the bill
here and take the matter up to tha
Supreme Court, or let the order stand
ior ruch other proceedings aa might
be hhought proper. Tha following or
der, restoring matters to their original
shape waa then entered :
The Guarantee Tru't and Safe Deposit
Company, vs. the Memphis, elma and
xtrtmswick Railroad Company and others.
This day the application tor a receiver was
heard upon the bill, amended bill aad exhib
it, Use Hon. John ltaxter and K. . Ilara
mond etc., presidio, Th court was of the
opinion that eoniplninant was not entitled
to a receiver upon the cause dif-ctosed by
the bi l, auitinded bill and exhibits, and so
ordered, adjudged and decreed, and the ap
plication for a receiver was thereupon ac
cordingly dissolved and denied.
11. I ire the adjournment cf court
Col. tiantt arose and aaid he desired
ti read Mr. Erb'a answer to the charges
rf fraud made in the amended bill.
Judge Baxter replied that it wai not
necesrary, hi the court made no
charges, but simply declared that on
the face of the bl.l complainant had
grounds lir action. But alleging
things in a bill and proving them by
testimony were two different things.

Thoie who imagined they bad heard
the last of Mr. Noel May and his atts
aian well scheme are very much niie
Mken. Mr. May came np smiling,
from New Orleana yesterday, and his
first visit wai paid lo the city authori
ties. He aays he baa organiaed a ttosk
Company, with a capital ot $100,00,
and is ready to go to work aa soon an
he can see an opening for anything,
shonld he be successful. Since hie
last visit here Mr. May has beea busy
with some Crescent City cap tttlisU
who bave large sums invested in
He bai finished with them, and is
rrndy for a new enterprise. About
Denver, which has been the center Of '
his opeiatlons, the whole face ot the
country ia performed with wells, but
all m that kind of work seeded for
the present haa been done, and a large
number ot mn, whose business il ia
to faoro. v.ellf.sre looking f ir a new
field of operations. The company Mr.
May a'ludee 1 1 is largely composed of
these men, who have tome cash and a
gretC deal of experience, and who feel
conlldent tbat they ran solve the
problem of furnishing Memphis with
The only question Mr. May says, is
one ot depth, and he thinks it would
be necestitry to go down a couple of
thousand feet He and his associate
are armed with all sorts of arguments
and disconrss learnedly about the dip,
the percolation ol water Irom toe
emit hikes, the ocean and the gulf
and the atorage of wtr in nnder
gtoand reservoirs. Mr. May dots not
claim ti have discovered anything
new. Chita, he says, has thousands
cf bored wells and there is one in Ger
many 7C0 years old which y lei is
AS MUCrl WATEB
as it did when fiist pierced.
To Capt. aiiics Iee, a member of
the Board ot Police and Fire Commis
sioners, Mr. May said tbe Council
might consider tbe two Iprmer propo
sitions he made that body aa with
drawn, and that all be want!
now was some guarantee tea', he
would b allowed to compete w.ti
the present company ahould he be
auccetsfui. uapt. use reputa mat it
be obtained what he promised, a plen
tiful supplv of water onobjec-
t enable as ti quality, there would
be no question of bis being
able I) couiptti. Ho had only to
draw a teacupful from arty faucttiu
the city to convince himself of that.
So fares permission to bore wni con
cerned he might buy

he wanted to, Tbe only object on
would be the opening of so dirett a
toati flora Memphis t) tbat nctjd
summer retort. But if the termieal
facilities were his own and
there wut tu appropriation of
the streets and alleys of the Taxing
Dial -let, he did not see how any really
valid object' on could be made. Mr.
May said that was one cf the very
points he wished tJ get at. The old
company claimed exclusive right, of
way. He wss reminded that the city
railway bad claimed the same tbing,
and there the matter rests. The city
authorities bave not the power to en
courage Mr. May, an act of the Legis
lature being a prerequisite.
