MEgrglS APPEAL.
SA1IEPAT, ! I MARCH 18, 1880
CLETILal ABD Bl'aTIS.
A non-partisan adminiitration in an
tlflctir rnyernment is an utter I in
ability. No President of the
Unite r'ata can carry out wise
measures who fails to consult with
his party Weed?, and especially the
Congreeeional leaders on whom he
will be fotred to lean in the hour of
debate and part'mn conflict Presi

policy o! bis own, and was forced to
threw himself in the arms of the
Democratic paity, bich had no eyin
pathy with him, as it had not been
fontmlted as to the polity of the ipsues
bich had been nnerpettedly pre
cipitated. The result was, President
Tjlerforbnr yeais ttod between
two fire J and received the kicks and
enreee of roth parties. I'reeident
Johnson, acted on his own htok,
sdopted "my policy" without con
sultation, and his adminietra
tion was a failure, barely escap
ing im peachmcnt. President Cleveland
has been true to his party and the
plallorm on whkh he was elected
Still believing "public office a public
trust" h has labored with matchless
aaalto inaugurate administrative re
form and to tarry out his pledges to
the people. The first year of his ad
ministration has been pure, almost
fatuities!. H Is to be regrtt'ed, how
ever, tbat any dintrui t or want of con
donee should subsiBt between the
President and his party leaders. Demo
cratic members of Congress charge
that he hps not shown them that re
spect and confidence due his party
friends-that he has developed a per
sonal policy, never takes them into
bis councils and forces them tj shoul
dor responsibilities they bad no voice
in creating. It is alleged that the
President sent his K'ceLt message to
the Benate without consulting his
party friondi, cr even giving Senators
time to prepare lor his deldnse. But
It seems this distrust between the
President and the Democratic mem
bers of Cmcrcas is about to be re
moved so as to biiog Mr. Cleveland
and his party in coord for the fatuio.
The President inaugurated the move
ment for ieconciliation by sending for
Senator Kiutls of Louisiana, who had
been most prouonnued in his con
damnation of the President's personal
policy. The meeting was moit bar
monions, and in bringing it about the
President showed the grandeur of bis
character, for he lilted himself above
petty consldeiatlona and his desire to
serve bis country, when he said
"Why does not Senator Eustis come
to see me? I have not the (lightest
ill-will against him, nor can I suppose
that he has any against me. My du
ties here take me out of myself. They
leave me no time even if I had the in
clination to harbor personal resent
roenti I am trying to give the peo
pie a clean and honest and able gov
eminent, and to this end I want the
co-opeiatien of all clean and able and
honest Democrats. You may tell
Kenalw Kustis that I shall be
glad to see and con far with him, and
hear his views." The Interview be
tween the Preside nt and Senator E cist ia
was root I plea.' iint and agreeable, and
the utterances of Mr. Cleveland were
nioit lolty and patriotic. In respond
ing to something paid by Senate Eus
tis, the President ijuickly and firmly
used ttieee words: "II it be true that
anyol my appoint irn is unworthy I
hopu he will be rejected. It is the
Senate's function to see to this. The
Senators are my coadjutitors and ad
visers; they cannot be to ezact'ug
In? inv taste. I want no improper
rr.ee in cilice." These are remarkable
words to be uttered while Mr. Cleve
land was under fire In the Senate, and
in conversation with a Democratic
Sen&tor dissatisfied with his policy.
Indeed the President seems to rise
with every new occasion, and is always
equal to his oppoitunitiee. Now tbat
he is tiking some (ains to remove the
cu3se for any distrust between himself
and Democratic members of Congress,
for the future they will no doubt act
it perfect harmony. Mr. Cleveland
hat maintained himself firmly in the
confidence d the people. Us has not
X roved fali-o to a single Demooiatlc
principle, and with harmonious rela
tions between the President and his
patty friends in Congress, the Demo
crat c paity will preseuta united front
in tl.e work of reform.

partially deprived of a commodity eo
important in the people's consump
tion, and io valuable a contributor to
the pronperity of levies, in order that
an extravagant tribute may be ptid to
the Louisiana plaiterT Kvery pound
of augar the citiasn buys pays over
to n-5ti tribute to the Louisiana in-
temt. That ir,tsrest is now opposing
before a committee of Congress the
rednctioaof the susar duty, and, not
satisfied mith mere opposition.it de
manda an intuit of tribute from the
people aud the commerce cf the coun
try, from the present rate to three
cents a pound. Are the people wil
ling to have their augar made a cent a
pound dearer? Are thote iitereated
in various trades, and the country
producer, deairoua of being weighted
down with a laa that restricts their
prosperity in order tbat the augar
lords of Louisiana may selfishly collect
fr im them tribute that ia derogatory
to their sel f-reapect aa well aa injurious
to their welfare? Aa a celebrated pa
triot during the war was raid to be
public-spirited enough to urge bis
uncle, Us brothers, and bis cousins to
join in the fight for the Union, while
csrefnl'y ketpicg from the battlefield
himself, so the advocate in Congress
of the sugar tribute calls for a removal
of . the tix upon clt thing, shoes,
n x i If, and blankets in crier that the
sugar tribute may be not only levied
but increased. More than this, the
sugar lows ootratiu tuai iuihi.u
treaty thall be abutted, and tbe
Mexican treaty, which wont 1 benent
seveial bianchea of our mnnufaUurcn,
remain inoperative, so that their petty
interet t may triumph and dominate.
Once more they make tbe utterly falsa
assertion that this country can pro
duce augar enough for the entire con
sumption. For lonu ycara that pre
tense has been kept up, but Jieavy as
the tribute ia tbat ia paid to i timulate
their efforts, they have given no prats
t'cal proof of the soundness of the
cla'm they make, nor can they. If no
augar could Lit grown in the country,
and therefore no tribute exacted by iti
cultivatord, the advantage to the farm
er aud the manufacturer would be im
mense, and eveiy family table in tbe
republic would escape heavy burdens.
It would pay the country well to buy
up every sugar plantation and sell the
whole in forty-acre lots, and ao save
the country the immense tribute it is
made to pay every yer to maintain
plantations that do not pay for the
woik tbat Ib done upon them.

ae cf the best points in Mr. Mor
gan's bill for moderating excessive and
miachievons tta'ures in the tariff, is
that requiring a reduction of the sugar
duties. Ae was expected, the sugar
Pinters of Louisiana strongly object
to this valuable provision of the bill.
The advantage it would confer would
be kit at the table of every family in
the United States. Every fruit grower
wo'ild be benefited by it, us cheaper
sugar would extend the preserving of

trda would find it to their advantage,

FASABA.
The visit ot De Leaeeps to the Fan
ama cacal, and reports from cone
fpoudenls present on the occasion,
have naturally drawn much attention
just now to the subject. The visit is
a sort of crisis in the history ot the
woik. Application is made to the
French government to permit large
amount ol money to be raised for the
prosecution ot the work by means of
a lottery. The report made by exam
iners present among the visitors will
determine whether tbe government
of France will permit the pioposed
lottery. Khoald it do so, then the
canal becomes a government work, a
fact that will give trouble if the cat al
ever be completed, for the United
states . cannot permit a European
power to dominate ita access to its
own coast on the Pacific. The report
that will be made to the French gov
ernment is, therefare, waited for with
profound interest. In the meantime,
ethers present on the occasion of De
Leeeepa's visit are publishing the re
sults of their observations. Tbe re
sult, so far, according to their state
ments. Is that the amount ot direct
work upon the canal performed up to
this time Is very small in proportion
to the money expended. But it also
appears that much of the money went
or machinery, the building of houses
and hoRpitals for the workmen
and for other preliminary expenses
that will not occur aj?ain. There are
some parts ot the work conducted in
a mastutly manner, especially lome of
the heavy rock work. The main work
has yet to be entered upon ; the rock
work becomes heavier as the mirface
soil is removed ; the Chagres river is
an obstacle as yet nnattacked. The
workmen die off by hundreds in tbe
pestiferous climate, but are generally
well paid and attended to, except in
cajee where some heartless contractors
act ill toward the laborers they hire.
Iba general management and over
sight appears to be creditable to French
method and attention to sanitary de
tiils. The pay of labor is good, but
the couutry cannot produce the food
wanted and b?ard Is high. The board
ia supplied by Chinese, who are mak
ing money. On the whole, spite ot
just such monetary difficulties aa oc
curred more than once when the S lez
canal was constructing, there are ex
perienced men who expect to
tos the project sncceeaiui in va
Lesaeps's hands. But if the time
of completion be deferred, it De Les
sens should die and the French de
spair of their projact, what then?
Then, Bay some ot those who look
ahead and foresee, then the United
States will Agree with the French gov
ernment and make tbe whole affair an
American one American machinery,
American methods, and the Mit of
American speed in accomplishing
work that waa shown when, in the

B hot ii lit or thi Bab We are met
here for the purpose of adopting pro
ceedings in regard to tbe death and
burial of Brother James E. Temple,
wbo died on the 10th instant at his
residence in Chelsea. lie waa the latt
surviving member of tbe old bar of
Memohis. He studied in the office
and under the instruction of Gran
ville u. Searcy. Eq . and commenced
practice about the year 1814, and was
born in Tipton county June 0, 1821.
In his long career aa a lawyer t ot only
were nia garments aept ires iroo
stain, bat not even tbe snauow oi
criticism passed over any ot his pro
fessional at I. tie was a pure, up
right mat, and his peitonal qualities
entered into and distinguished his
professional career.
On account of physical inSrinitiea
and dependence of bertaved relatives
on bis earnings for support, he bad to
travel in life tbe hard and thorny
pilhway of comparative poverty, ins
last words when dying, addressed to
his widowed sister, seemed to De a
retrospect of tbe pecuniary embarrass
ments of his past life.
"Sister," siys he, "we have had a
hard life of it, and thia is tbe end of it
tor me."
But poor aa he was his poverty never
t'mpted or pressed him outside of the
life cf an honest man and high-toned
gentleman. Amidat its vicissitudes he
preserved bis integrity. Noshedow ot
reproach rests upon any act of bis
long life, either as a lawyer, chris
tian or a gentleman, lie was sedulous
in the performance cf all the dutiea
enjoined on him by a Christian con
science. It waa said two thousand years ago
that the noblest spot tide of life waa
"a good man struggling with adver
sity." The trjth of this saying is
well illustrated by the life if our
dead friend. He waa never prosper
ous; pecuniary straits) encompassed
his life from earliett boyhood. Yet
be met them with manly fortitude,
with patience, and witn a pure, up
right conscience, lie was indefatiga
ble in his efforts to retrieve his comii
tion, and although tome down with
physical irfirmities, and his duties ti
dependent relatives, be died compara
tively freecf debt.
Knowing his ability and persever
ance, whenever 1 had a hard case in
litisu'ion, which required attention
and pertinacity I often gave Mr. Tem
ple an interest in it, and he never
failed to do his duty to the business
however difficult and troublesome it
might be.
lie was studious of books, and kept
up with the decisions of coutts.
He was ever at work in his office,
and when not engaaed in the work of
his lawsuits, he kept himself busy in
storing his mind with tbe elementary
nrincinlea of his profession. On ac
count of defective evesight and the
shrinking modeety ot his character,
be was not overuuruenea witn pro
fession nl business, but what he got
was well and intelligently attended to,
and crava satisfaction to his clients.
...T . . . . . i ... I
When ne once got a cueni nereiumeu
him In all hia subsequent business,
lor he inspired confidence and respect
in every one wno nau transact. one
mith htm.
His character waa dialinguisnea ior
its quiet, unobtrusive virtues, ana
won tbe respect and affection of all
hia associates. No envy, malice or
hatred ever entered into bis Dean,
fnr It vu soft and amiable as a child'a
heart, and he died without a single
enemy. How was it possible tor any
one to feel inimical to one of such pub-
Ki'MimnHcitv of character and manners,
Hia latter years were made nappy dv
tbe devoted affection ot a child, born
to him in his old age. She was the
liulit, of his life, and in ber presence
be ljrgot tne magpies ne nmranmo
for a livelihood. This bright, winnime
little girl made him forget the carp-
na carea of life, and scattered sun
shine over its latter days. It is tnid
that every life is made up with tut
ferings and compensations; and this
gift of Ood to our brother we can hope
was a comnentation ior tne irouuies
he bad to encounter.
