Tfir latest statement of Mr. Glad
stone's wrMM as .to Ireland includes
an Irish Parliament with diminished
apprwnUtion at Westminster. Mr.
ln.Lrt.rie relies on his power to con
Tinee tlio lCnglish peoplo that no
thor solution in available, lie will
aige that an Irwh Parliament existed
for centuries without causing separa
tion, and will olIW guarantee making
oryUiinj? look safe. A large body of
Liberals will support the project.
A stoso the hills introdoeed in the
House yosterJay was one by Mr. Mc
reary uf Kentucky, providing that all
eoiu now in the treasury not held fur
MHumplion junHcs, be applied to the
liquidation of the .ri'sblic debt, and
thai the ouinaguof mi rer dollars be con
tinued ad nt present required by law.
There oin bo no objection to paying
IT the ink rest-bearinf? debt, but the
ontimwd coinao of silver is a fatal
bliimler in legislation. The bill oiujlit

At tiik meeting of Englishmen and
Scotchmen in London a few days an,
to form a "Homo Kule Association"
to assist the causo of Irish home rule,
Lord Ashburnham took the chair.
Lord (flifton, the son of the Earl of
IXtrnley, spoke of "that great states
man whom I am proud to call a near
tfclatiim, my cousin, Mr. rurncll. The
Irish leader is a cousin of Iinl Darn
ley and lrd Clifton. The laftcr's
words are remarkable at a time like
the present, h.ivs Mr. Justin McCarthy,
but they would have been more time
ly a year or two atM, when Mr. Pariudl
was fitrujqrlingat the head of an almost
Cot., lha.vrdtf Dcncan, who lias
nevt r been a safe guide in anything,
has in soma way secured the Asso
ciated Tress as a vehicle by which to
reach the public car with a charge
against the negro that is as baseless
and unjust as anything well could be.
He iloes not give a single figure or fact
to .sustain hiri'allcgation that the negro
has not made any progress. The facts
re all of them the other way. The
negro has, by availing himself of edu
cation, blotted out 30 per cent, of the
illiteracy that weighted him when the
war closed, and everywhere through
out the South has proved himself a
patient, faithful, steady worker. Col.
Duncan should learn that one" of the
greatest reforms instituted since the
war is the substitution of facts for as
sertion. Words have no value save as
they express or sustain facts as they
tell the. trntb.
Wk understand it is proposed by
the, State Democratic Committee to
urnmgtt it it lhAtK.Vi. Jiiti' l.
to the State Convention to nominate
Supreme Court Judges slvdl also serve
as delegatus to the Gubernatorial Con
vention. Wo protest that it has no
authority to make any such arrange
ment;' that it has no authority or
power to do otherwise than follow the
wise precedents of the party, and call
two distinctive conventions. The com
mittee is an exeeutivo body, and has
no right to attempt a change of pro
cedure in anything allecting tho party
or its purposes. When the conven
tions which it is empowered to call
have, assembled they can alter, amend
or abolish the custom, but the com
mittee can do neither. It must not
usurp power nor lend itself to any
thing that is in conflict with the un
written law of the Ifiicnitie party.
AVb havo many times suggested the
name of Justice Coleman for impor
tant offices but as often have been dis
appointed by his positive declination,
his Hat refusal to serve the peojde in
any other capacity than that in which
he has cllected so much good for the
county. Hut this has not discouraged
us. We have deferred to the
reasons that ruled the 'Squire
nnil have surrendered cherished
purposes in the public interest. We
propose to-day to put him in nomina
tion for Coroner, believing that he is
the only member of the County Court
who can in that position meet the
wishes of all classes of the people, anil
the only one who can carry a large
majority of the court, We respectfully
suggest him to the magistrates for the
place, and we urge upon him to per
mit tho use of his name for urgent
public reasons that he cannot disre
gard. Mr. Coleman must serve as
C-oroner. The peojde this time insist

Tun officers and directors of the
Young Men's Christian Association
were much chagrined by the charge
made by a correspondent in Sunday's
A ppeal that discrimination had been
made by tho librarian on account of
tho clothes or personal apjiearance of
visitors. The fact is, the association's
rooms havo for some weeks been made
a rcndewTons by tramjw, who even
' wont so far as to force an entranco
at nigfH and turned them into
sleeping apartments. " This of course
could not bo permitted ; indeed, tho
chief of police gave tho officers notice
Uiat it would have to be stopped, or
he would' interpose the power of tho
law to prevent it. It is difficult often
to discriminate, and the two persons
our correspondent complained of may
have boon rejected because their
personal appearance was against them
because they looked like the
class of characters who had made them
selves objectionable. The association
is engaged in a mission work, and its
offiocrsand directors are earnestly pur
suing that work, but they cannot be
expected to make a lodging-house of
their rooms for tramps, and if mistakes
are made it is easy to have them reme

father, he iiosscwcs asirong and vigor
ous intellee, a sound mid practical
judgment, is open and ' frank in
the expression of his opinions, and
seems to understand tho character of
congressional timber that will success
fully cope' w ilh the illustrious Taylor.
"Taylor can be. bent, provided that the
convention makes no mistake," and
he added that he was decidixlly of the
opinion that James Phelan w:is the
most nv.idiilile innn. I asked him 1 il
reasons for his opinion. lie said:
"Well, Mr. Phelan is a man of universal
popularitv-a man of wonderful en
ergy, a sound Democrat, with a eon
sist'ent record, and a man of tine judg
ment and spotless integrity, lie is in
line with the great majority of Un
people and statesmen of the day on
such questions as the improvement of
the Mississipjii river, the coinage of
silver, the jirotcrtivo tarill' and
the educational bill, and nil
other questions uU'ecting the
public welfare. He has labored
tor years with ceaseless energy and
upon high and honorable grounds for
the success of his party, und made for
himself a lodgment in tbe hearts and
gratitude of his people which can not
and will not be forgotten. In 1'helan
are combined the elements of a brnve,
fearless, scholarly gentleman, and I'll
tell you, if . nouiinatod, will be
elected." The Kansas City road to this
jioint is in asjilcnilid condition. Within
the short spine of two years, under
the able management of Superintend
ent Sullivan, every obstacle has been
overcome, and to-day it ranks as one
of the smoothest and safest roads in
the South. The hotel here is one of
best in the country. It is kejit by
Mrs, L. M. Arnold, sister of the splen
did proprietress of Walnut Hidge.
