VESTKOYI.hu LAND MOSOPOL.T.
Contrary to what wn expected, but
probably la defereoca to the wishes ot
the Irian, people, Mr. Glads'ooe haa
decided to take up the question of
iome rule belore entering upon that
of land. The fu '. ia the laid qiieetion
la rrnt confined to Ire'and. England,
Scotland and Wales, aa well aa Ireland,
re borne down by tbc vicious presento
of landlordism, aid what the govern
ment diet to relieve one country
will be claimed by the other-. This
largely extenda "the land qnettion" aa
matter of governmental policy,
which may be one d the reasons foriti
postponement. These lands are mostly
in few hands aid olten entailed. Ea
Uil matt ls established 10 that every
owner of it may have tbe liberty to
sell at h'K fleaeuro. The transfer of
land in England is now bunperetl by
all kind) of rentrlctic in, Tcl'ct of feu-
tlal times. It is' necesfitry that land
should be aa capable of being sold and
ti'unolerred aa other property. But
more than this ia contemplate!. It ia
proposed t establish s sort of local
court or commission to drill wi h t';c
subject. This oouit will be elsctui by
the tut-payeri, and the election will bi
wcaretullygaardclatt tatof members
of Parliament. Those local bodies
will bava power to acquire land by
compulsory process for public pur
poses, including dwellings for laborers
and srtlaana and small holdings. Tbe
landlords will be required to tell the
necessary land at a fair vn'uatlon,
without power t? refuse. The land
will be taken from them and s fair
price paid fr It, and tha land so ac
quired will be placed within the rencb
of small farmers on terms of payment
- suited to their condition. Tbe great
evil of overgrown laid monopoly can
hardly be overthrown by putting
some nrtlon of around into other
hands. That evil is that the monop
oly of land endows iti owner with
kind of sovereignty. He can, and
toj oltm does, oppress his tenantry.
He has made them in pait timea vote,
not aa they pleased but aa he dictated.
"Have I not a right to do aa I please
with my own 7" a iked the Duke
of Newcastle fifty years ago
when he evicted considerable
number ot his tjnanta at Newark,
Nottinghamshire, because, against
his command, they voted for Parlia
mentary reform. This kind ot "my
own," so unjust aad mischievous,
haa ti be done away wltb. Clear of
tbe taint ot Socialism, the English
people have grasped the ImpoiUnt
princlplo that lies at the root ot
Mr. (Jeurge'e teaching, and they will
require not only that a few men shall
gain email farms, but tbat a system be
introduced that will gradually lead to
the diffusion of property in land, and
to the destruction of larga estates.
This is a malt jr ol serious interett
among ourselves, for a time will come,
and before long, when In this country
we shall have to break up by law tl
evil of land monopoly.
MUITKBINUH Or WAR.
Mutteringa of war are still beard in
-the East, and any giving way or strong
division among the European powers
would evidently lead to a oontea'i
Failing that there Is liability that soma
otip d' rtat, auch as that in EM Bul
garia, which gave jim to the Servian
war, may suddenly change the face of
flairs and cause new troubles. Servia
chafea impatiently under the defeat
Bulgaria hai taflitted upon it, and ia
furioua at tbe idea of its paying a war
indemnity aa claimed by Bulgaria.
King Milan has summoned the entire
Servian fery to enter tbe field in fall
war equipment lor .a six weeks' drill.
This if aetata of things that does net
promise well f or the preservation ot
peaoe. In Greece matters are nleo
threatening. Further additions have
been made to the Meet, which bm bet n
ordered to Balamia, and an intend.!
descent on Balonica is suspected. The
fleet of the international power Is
closely watching every moveiafntj of
the Greek fleet; Vlat at da haveWn
' ulyaterlonsly posted kt Athens threat
ening the Greek Government if it
obey tbe order of the powers to dis
arm. Correspondents writing from
Greece say that war between that pow
er and Turkey appears almost inevitn
ble; s revolt in Crete Is looked for.
It the Greek Government retire
without obtaining territorial com
pensation such as Bulgaria obtained,
each is the feeling among the people
that its downfall would probably fol
low, and it ia said the King, wearied
with perplexities, is disposed toward a
resign tioa ia preference to awaiting
dethronement. It is not the old hatred
cj tbe Tpk rat animates the Greeks,
bit a determination to rule In Mace
donia. The Greeks p'a: mnch confi
dence ia the friendship Mr. Gladstone
bai alwaya shown them, and their de
lay to begin operations la probably
from waiting to tee what steps be will
take. Sofar hia receLtconmunliations
with the Greeks have net been highly
flattering to their hopes. Ituwia is
favorable to Greece, but is not in
favorable position Just now to make
sure of tbe advantages it hopes to se
cure in the Balkan, and therefore fa
vors delay on the part cf Greece. Iiut
that country has prepared itselt for
war, an? objetti to continuing the ex
penses of such situation with noth
ing doing. Th attitude of the pres
ent government in Englaad appears
likely to prove tbe main influence in
settling matters ; but France is urging
England to vacate Egypt, and if dis
pute should arise upon tbe subject
England would have to cultivate tbe
friendship of Turkey, wbich wonld
work adversely to Greece.
EJECTED ISJ (OlfllTTer.
Mr. Bland's proposition, "thttfiom
nd after the passage ot this act all
holders ot silver bullion of the value
of f 50 or more standard fineness, shall
be entitled to have the tame coined
into standard silver dollars," was de
feated Monday in tbe House commit
tee by vote of seven to five. The
members of the coromit'ee from Ken
tucky and Indiana voted f r free coin
age, wbich was unexpected. Some ot
tbe members ,wbo favor silver were
opposed to compromise measures, and
such measures are at an end for the
present. The question will come
cleat ly before Coogress on sus
pension or unlimited free coin
aso. It is better that the mat
ter should thus be presented
distinct' y, than that a comproniiw un
satisfactory to elthtr party should
waste time aid accomplish nothing.
All the talk about bimetallism and
payment of bonds and other 'side
Issues," only diveit attenliiu from the
sub j act lOAlly invtlved. Does the
country desire to retain the uso of the
dollars it now possesses? As t lings
stand their circulation is not rerioutly
objected to. With the large quantity
of coined dollars now in the vaults,
and the lmliupcu'tlon ot the people to
almitan txteneive amount of them
into circulation, coui led with the
danger cf the coina falling in clreula
tioa vu'ue if the amount of them be
come Inordinate shall we continue
coining more T That is the real point
at issue, the practical point in which
the country is interested and with
which its commerce is concerned.
TlIK HO If. HOBAt'B It. LDUTOSJ.
A wise and incorruptible judiciary
is the sanctuary to which the people
confidently flse fur protection. This
is especially tt of the Supreme Couit
of the State. Men are frequently
elected judges of the inferior courts
whose decisions are mojkery of law
and justice. But those who suffer by
incompetent or venal judges are con
soled by tbe reflection that there is
higher tribunal to right tbe wrong. It
is not, therefore, surprising that the
people of Ten nessee.e very eight years,
manifest such deep and profound
interest in the election of their Su
preme Couit judges. The regular
election of these high officials ocours
this year, and from one end ot the
State to tbe other the people are
united in the demand for the nomi
nation ot the best men. It is
relief to know that some of the
ablest lawyers of the ttte
re not only willing to serve the peo
ple if elected, but are avowed candi
dates for nomination. The Hon.
Horace If. Lurton ot Olarksville has
announced himself candidate. We
understand he is in the city, and in
tends to canvass the State. He ia wise
in doing ao, for the people want to see
and know the men who aspire tl high
judicial positions, and are cot in
clined to elevata those too dignified to
ask in place, and who wilt
not aerve the people unless dragged
upon the bench. Judge Luiton wilt
make a favorable impression wherever
he go 3s. Ilia natural abilities are
great aid his disciplined training in
the law have given him eminence in
tbe profession and established his
reputation as one of the profoundest
nd ablest lawyers In the Slats, and
his decisions on complex ques
tions ot law would place him
among the foremost I jurists of
the State. Thoroughly grounded
in tbe principles of common. Uw, and
master of the great . fundamental prin
ciples , of jurisprudence, hia accom
plished mind would easily detect the
sophistries and technicalities of pro
fessional learning, grasp aid make
clear the rights and equities. It is said
of Judge Lurton by the ablest lawyers
of the 6 late familiar with hie practice,
that ba has an intuit ve Insight into
the heart ot case. Such natural
legal mind, combined with , hia well
known honetty of purpose to serve
the ends of justice and protect the ia
tsresta committed to hia charge, pre
eminently fit hhu tor judicial clRee.
He loves the law, to aualyu if, to un
ravel it i intricacies aad expound its
principles ; his mind is rapid and dear
in its ionceprloci, comprehensive in
its reach, and his Opinions as oae'of
lie juujree ol-the Supreme Court of
tbe folate would be models cf wisdom,
justice and law. ,

London, Feb. 18. Both houses of
Parliament were crowded to-day.
Loid iiartington look a seat behind

cbeered by tbe Conservatives. The
crowd outside of tbe Parliament build
ings, which usually givee an enthusi

only faintly cheered Mr. G'uJatoae

feeling of discontent over the meager
new of tbe government's statements
regarding its proposed Irish measures.
The fact that the government made no
announcement ot its programme for
the introduction of bi'ls ah"ecting Ire

which no philosophy rai assuage,
Mrs. Lncy Vanie Guinn wps
born snd 'reared in Mexphis,
known and loved by everybody. Her
presence was like sunshine in every
bouse aid circle the entered, and she
touched to lling ehe did not adorn.
Only three years ao she was one of
tbe loveliest in the galaxy of beautiful
eirlB that gathered in the sotikl circle.
She knew no guile, was artless and
innocent as a cbi'd. Her heait was
t o pure to think evil, aid Bhe was as
wild end free aa the gez)lle upon the
mountains. But when ehe gave her
heart and Laid to her husband, her
bright piercing eves overflowed with
the wa era cf wifely efTectioa, and ehe
entered vigorously upon the duties of
t'ue womanhood. Her gentle arms
and loving heart had learned the ec
static blisa of laying an infant pledge
of love nioi a mother's throbbing
breast ; her ears htard theme'oiyof
tho infant's cry, when she suddenly
died, the idolized queen of a realm of
happiness, surrounded by loving
husband and devoted friends, who
lavished npon her a wealth cf love.
Black night came before it

sundered in twain the mother was

has been extinguished by tbe dark,

heart like the fresh incense cf natnre

Who can enter Into the awful griif

unspeakable anguish. This estimable
lady, in brenthipg her own precious

her grief-stricken husband. It may
be that this sweet bud of con
rnbial love hat been given by
Providence to fill the rch

while grieving for the shattsred idol
in the grave. A warm aad true senti
