IHE MAN TO EEPBESEXT TUI
DISTRICT 19 CONGRESS.

Ken, and Farmers Especially,
ShonU Tote for Him.
To the Editor! of tho appeal :
In jour paper, ol Sunday, 31st of
January, was an exceedingly interest
ing letter from yoar Nashville corre
spondent, a portion of his letter hav
ing direct reference to onr fallow
townsman, James PheUn, as t'le man
to represent this diiUict in the next
Conprees. Allow me to congia'ulate
the ArriAL for ita hf arty indorsement
o! ita correspondent touching Mr.
Phclan's fitneca for so honorab'e a
I have thoueht for tome time tLut
our friend Hidden could render Mem
phis more genuine, practical service
in Congress than any other man we
could send to Washington as our Rep
resentative: tat it is only too evident
that Memphis cannot do without his
active vigilance for a vear or two
longer, as railroads and water-works
re lUtly ts monopolies on unit.
Daring the past year Mr. Phelan has
quietly but very positively manifested
an interest in pre jected public works
that concern Memphis in no slight de
gree ; and he has done this in a man
ner proving his comprehension of the
objects sought to b attained. Recently
he was one of a committee on
Chamber of Ommerce sent to Wash
ington in behalf cf the river interests
of this great valley, and though that
committee was composed of Hading
and intelligent merchants they made
him iheir apokesman before one of
the moit important commi'.Ues of
Congress. The compliment waa one
that an older head might be proud of
B OCMMBBCIAL INTERESTS OF MEMPHIS
are already so commanding and are so
rapidly expanding by river and rail as
to demand at Washington a Con
gressional representative of liberal and
broad views, and of such intellectual
influence as to be able to impress his
opinions upon cthtra. However
worthy a man may be who wishes to
represent Memphis in the next Con
gress, her business ' men seem to be
ukim an active Dart in mutters they
rave seldom shown in past years, and
if the conversation on street and in
private circles indicates anything it is
this, that the time baa come when
Memphis cannot afford to commit her
vast, vanea ana rapiaiy grow
- ina business and her brilliant pros'
pecti to the keeping of any Congress
man who, however worthy in all
other respects, cannot secure for them
the calm and tmeelfish consideration
tbey merit at the hands of onr nation
al legislature. Will you hear me
while I attempt to give some of the
reasons why, just now, Memphis
need Vlci active brain of a wide
awake man in Congress T Such another
?ricultural region cannot be f ) nd on
the globe aa that bounded by the
lakes on the nortb, the Gulf on the
south, and the Alieghanies and the
Rockies on the enit and west. The
Mississippi has no equal on either
continent, and the tributaries are
larger and longer, and more numer
ous than those ot any other river of
the world. The valley of the Nile is
partly in the torrid zone, and full of
candy deserts, mat 01 we Amnion,
though wonderful in many aspects,
has the disadvantage of being all be
tween the same lines cf latitude, as its
grand river rnns from west to east,
however, runs fiom the north to the
aoulb, crosses twenty degrees cf lati
tude, and the ptoductions of ita fertile
valley vary in charactsr with every
mile, as the waters rush from the icy
lakes to the warm gulf. One hundred
and fifty years ago all this vaUey wni
a wilderness, tenanted by wild beasts
and as wild red men. The footprint
of the white man was never seen west
of the Alieghanies except as a buLtar,
traoner or explorer. Lrok at this
mum valley now. In 1880, not in'
eluding the Territories west of our
river, it held moie than one-half of
tho 50,000,000 people then in the
Union. It also had seven-tenths of
ail the horses and cattle, faur-fifths of
all the mules, one-haif of all the
sheep and and three-f jurths of ell the
swine in '.he Union. Among all peo
ple these conttitute the elements of
national wealth and prosperity. For
six years past the crops of grains, to
bacco, sugar, molasses and cotton bear
the same relative proportion. Couple
a'l this with the lumber, man
ufacturing, commercial, mining
and transportation business grow
ing from such wonderful x re
sources, and then say if such vast
and diversified interests do nit need
at Washington the ablest men which
this valley can send there, from Min
nesata to Texas.
MEMPHIS NEEDS A (iBASI) RAILBOAlD
across this river, and we need at
Washington a Congressman who can
-convince "doubting Thomases" that
if Congress can protect the commerce
ff this river by improving ita naviga
tion, it is equally bound to protect the
commerce which now daily crosses
the river by the costly, uncertain and
hazardous trunsfers now used.
If Memphis can sell giain or meat
or anything else to Alabama and
Georgia as cheaply as St. Louis tan,
she needs a Congressmen at Washing
ton who will vote for a Jaw to prevent
railroads from depriving her of her
just commercial advantages.
There is yet another most potent rea
son why Memphis should ' have at
Washington as our Congressional j
Representative a man of enlarged and ;
progressive pditical opinions. The i
views more generally entertained by ;
our leading statesmen toucuing trie
duties and obligations cf the Federal
Government non the subject of intsr
iimI improvements are not those held
fifty years ago, and Democrats as will
as Republicans heartily embrace .the
advanced duetnnee. The government
spends millions now in improving !
rivers, burbors, etc., where it ex- t
' pended thousands then, because com-i
merce is now justly regarded aa the I
handmaid of agriculture and all other 1
. . .i i i : I r
industries, ixoioaiy in mis view uem
by our present politicians of both par-1
ties, bnt an advanced step has been j
twice taken daring the past ten years
by aiding m the erection and precau
tion of large and costly buildings
where the citizens of this and foreign
lands may see how varied and abund
ant are our wonderful resources for
sustaining a dense population of intel-
KM'CATION, INDfSTBY, ESTKaTRIHE,
WEALTH AND POWER, j
But the Expositions at Philadelphia I
and New Orleans form but iso'ated in-1
' nances of what the Federal Govern-1
ment should do in that regard. Ia-i
stead of one Exposition, we ought tj !
have it leasttwenty such fair centers;
at .Boston, cuiiaio, ooiumuus,
(Jharioalou, Allan i, tvwnmond, .Balti
more; and the Fedeial Government
should appropriata a million dollars
f r the erection at each city of a mag
nificent Expositor Building, where
could be seen the many and rich pro
ductions of the country around Jhese
fair centers. Why rot make such an
appropriation? The government
spends millions anno ally fw custom
houses, postoffices, (oart-houses, etc.,
and yet not one of these would so
gather the money cf the wbo'.e conn
try, or so attract the attention and ex
cits the admiration of the world as
would these fair centers. Why not
combine these improvements and con
centrate the expenditures T In what
way could a portion cf the public
money be better expended? What
other plan would so generally aiouse
the energies of the people? In what
other way would the thousands cf
idle peopla now anxiously asking for
work find employment? Wtat meas
ure would so soon make the people
living in each

others? Wrat would so increase

A BITTER FlUilf
la the (iberokee Nation Over me
IMstrlbulioB of Their Honey.
Little Rock. Ark . Februaiy 10.
Advices from Indian Territory report
an intensely bitter right bttween the
Cberokees and what are known ai the
"adopted citizsns" over the distribu
tion of $300,000. The money was paid
thn nherokeea bv the Unitad State"
government ; in 1883, for land owned
by them. It wni distnouteu among
Cherokees by blood only, colored
men, Delaware and Shawnee Indians,
all Cf whom are adopted citizsne.being
excluded. Bmce the distribution toe
Incur had been Hunting ti secure
ahare of the money. Senator Dawes
has introduced himself in the colored
citizens' nuse, and it is intimated that
the Cberokees will be forced to yield
through Congressional intervention.
The -question has been before the
Cherokee Legislature, that body pass
ino a hill over the veto of the princi
pal chief, Bushy-lie ad, providing for
the distribut ion of the monev among
the Cherokees bv blood only. The
chief wanted it divided among citizens
irrespective of color or nativity, claim
ing that a failure to do so would annul
all that had been done to carry out
tha' treaty of 1866. and put the CherO'
kee nation in the altitude of being
false to ita obligations. The Legisla.
ture refused ti be guided by his ad
vice. In April next 1300,000 in moaey
arising from the It .no of the Cherokee
utrin to the cattle syndicate is to be
divided in a similar manner, Bushy
Head's vi tJ having a second time
been overruled. The adopted citizens
want this money used in payment of
their claim, and also demand a pro
rata division of such amount as may
remain after a per capita division of
the $300,000 obi ained from the sale of
Chicago, III., February 10. The
chief subject of interest among the
skilled laborers of Chicago ia centered
in the seveial efforts which have al
ready been made to boycott certain
firms who have incurred the enmity cf
their employes, both in this city and
other localitiea. The boycott ordered
against five cf the largest shoe manu
facturers and dealers in the West is
being ictively pushed. So far aa their
city tiade is concerned there has thus
far been but a slight falling off in the
volume of business, ror is it like'.y
that their trade will pe seriously in
jured bare; but iu the country it is
claimed that already the mandate of
the Knights of Labor has bad seri
ous effect upon the salts nt convict
groJs made and sold by the boycotted
firms. It is in the country where the
boycotters expect to make themselves
fell, and the outlying districts are being
systematica'ly canvassed by members
of the Knights oi u-aoor tor tne express
BUINIKO TUB uuemiuu
of all boot and shoe manufacturers
who have prison contract j and cell
prucn made goods. A merchant from
Iowa, in the city yesterday, earn tuat
in his vicinity the boycott against a
certain Eastern stove factory had re
sulted in a general uprising among
the workingmen. who would not buy
the goods made by the boycotted firm
npon any terms whatever. Since the
boycott nai ordered one hardware
firm, whtcb bad in siock bdoui a car
loid of these ostracised eo.ide. had
been unable to dispose of them, and
bee ause they had refused to discos
tinue the rale of these stover, tneir
general tiaie bad been seriously crip
nled. inauiries at many piaes in
thia c;tv. where a bovcottid Daven

his trade has been seriously cut into
since the workingmen of Davenport

It is said that a general boycott will

A TRUE WIOKY.
"Where is the baby, grandma?"
The iweet young mother calls
From her work in the cosy kitchen
With its dainty whitewashed walls.
And grandma loaves her knitting.
And looks for her all around;
But not a trace of a baby dear
Can anywhere be found.
JIo sound of its merry prattle,
No gleam of its sunny hair,
No patter ot tiny footsteps,
No sign of it anywhere.
. All through the hou-e and garden,
Far out into the field.
They aenrch every nook and corner,
But nothing is tavealcd.
And the mother's face grew pallid;
tirnndmamma'c eyes grew dim ;
The father'! gone to the village;
No use to look for him.
And the baby lost! " Whero's Ruver?
The mother chanced to think
Of the old well in the orchard
Where the cattle used to drink.
"Where"! Rover?" I knew he'd find her!
"Rover!" In vain they call.
Then hurry away te the orchard :
And there by the moss-grown wall,
Close to the well, lie' Hover,
Holding to baby'i dress.
Who was loaning over the well'! edire
In perfect fearlessness.
She stretched her tinr irms down.
But Hover held her fast,
And never seemed to mindthe kicks
Tho tiny bare feet cast
So spitefully upon hiia.
But wagged bis tail instoad,
To greet the frightened Marchers,
While naughty baby said;
"Here's n 'ittle dirl in the 'ater;
hhe'i dust as big as me ;
Mamma, I want to heip her out,
And take her home to tea.
But Rover, ho won't let me,
And I don'tlove him. io
Away, you naughty lWir,
h! wby are you crying so.'
The mother kissed her, saying:
"My darling, understand,
(Jood Hover save J your life, my dear -
And seel he licks your hand!
Kiss Rover." Baby struck him,
But grandma undctHtood;
She said: "It's hard to thank the friend
Who thwarts us lor our good."
. TIM Coke Region Strike.
Mt. Peasant, Pa., February 10.
The coke region strike, it is thought,
will rjw settle down t j a mere ques
tion of endurance on both sides. The
action of the syndicate in cloeing
down all works and ceasing to turn
out coke is looked upon by the people
here as a wise move, which should
have been taken two weeks ajo. The
entire agitation among the strikers,
with its story of arson, riot and blood
sbed, has resulted from the excur
sions Of strikers to compel those em
ployed at the various works to quit.
It "is thought now that when the
source of the fermented confusion is
removed there will not be such a rally
at the meetings, and reflection among
the strikers will supplant the tend
ency to fight and destruction. The
strikers look upon the edict with in
difference. They are -still perfectly
sure in their own minds that the
onm-aton must ffnallv surrender. They
say that the lack cf coke wUl throw
lOOiObO men out ci empioymem m
other industries, and that pressure
will be brought to bear upon trie
coke-Droducers from that direction,
even more embarrassing than their
own demand. The onlv tumble now
imminent is that which may result
where attemcti at arrest are made,
and also where desperation will come
torn want of f:ol. The people who
have contributed have looked upon
efforts of the operators to keep the
ovens hot ai an indication tb at they
must have coke, and would likely soon
advance the price. The bhut-down,
however, gives the charity businees
the appeaiaace of lusting a long time
and it is a Question whether the com'
mnnitina pan affnrd tr keen it UD lonur,
It is thought now that no evictions
will be made at this time.

Koscdalis is a sovereign remedy for
all diseases of the blood. It has no
eijaal for the euro of all nervous dis
orders. Bead tisertificate: I would
like to bear testimony to the merits of
Kosadalis, by tayin that some eight
years ago I was totally prottrated and
could get no relief iroin onr iamily
physician, but after taiing one bottle
of Eosadalis I became entirely restored
lo health. I now weigh 175 pounds,
but when I first took your medicine I
weighed onk 130. I cheerfully recom
mend it to all, and especially to those
atfUc'ed with rervousi debility.
