It is comforting even to us in free
Amcffi-a to notice the rapid strides
England is making toward the inevi
table in her destiny -a republic. It in
axruring proof that the race in the
ttother land lias lost nothing of its
virility or love of liberty. When tU
monarchy and the aristocracy and
the church goes, tho English-speaking
people will stand united on a solid
basis of individual liberty, and can
then take up their tusks as propagand
ists of freedom.

dwellingsdestroying Ijooks, furniture
and clothing to the amount, it is safe
to say, of half a million dollars an
nually. If a street force of 100 men was
kept constantly at work at $1 50 each
per day to sweep and keep the streets
clean If would save the citizens fully
4r0,000 per year and from much dis
comfort and annoyance. This, too,
besides that they would not, as now,
be compelled to swallow powdered
horse manure with almost every res
piration. Clean streets are as easen-
tial as a good sewer system, and both
are among the best evidences of civil
The position taken by Col. Mont
gomery as to payment for street privi
leges is the correct one. It should
have been enforced long ago, not only
here, but in all American cities. Fail
ure in that direction has cost Mem
phis tho control of its best streets,
which are now really owned by the
gas, the water, the telegraph, tele
phone and street railroad companies.
It is, therefore, too late to attempt to
enforcoit. The granting of right of
way to a-second or a third gas com
.pany is merely conceding the right of
competition in a field that has already
all but passed from the control of the
Council. The city itself contemplates
becoming a competitor of the AVater
Company, and it can only do so by an
invasion of the streets and alleys al
ready occupied by the Water Com
pany's pipes. If Memphis had had a
' Col. Montgomery thirty years ago to
look after her interests, such a sugges
tion would then have been in order,
but even in that early day it would
have been defeated on the score of
public necessity, just as it will be in
this. It is too fate to lock the stable
after the horse has got out.
The courage that comes of culture

sengers on the Oregon, the '-racer of

says that ."after the collision the first
credit is given to the women passen
gers forcoolness, bravery and dignified
behavior. The men in the first cabin
are said to have come next in freedom
irom panic and in the repression of
selfishness, but not all of them had self-
command enough to refrain from con
vulsive struggles to get into the boata,
and not all of them remembered at that
exciting moment the courtesy habitual
to them. The women, however, be
haved nobly and, so far as can be ascer
tained, perfectly. Helpless and utterly
dependent as they were, they made no
trouble, got in nobody's way, abstained
Irom all nervous collapses, did not add

. a very complete expose of landlord
ism in the United States, takes up the
case of William Scully, an Irishman,
who seems to have profited by the
. lessons of absenteeism taught in his
own country, and to be living in Lon
don in the enjoyment of all that the
world's capital affords of pleasure on
tho rents wrung from tenants whose
miserable condition is a sad and
mournful contrast with the happy
rstate of their neighbors who cultivate
their own lands. Scully, of course,
has no heart, no soul. He cares noth
ing for his tenants. His sole concern
is to bind them so fast as to make
them his agaves for five or more years,
-pernaps fcr life, lie doesn't wield
the lash of , the slave driver, but he
- can put uie screw of Uie law to them
and take alldhat they have if it is nec
essary tosatiafy his claim. Heis within
the limit of the law, and no matter
' what heart-break, sorrow and degra-
dation may follow to his eaislaved ten
ants he cannot be interfered with.
By his system thousands of men,

Mate bordering on pauperism that he,
one man, amy live an luxury and lord
it at his pleasure over human chattels.
Negro slavery was a great rong.
In what is this less so? Slavery was
guaranteed by the federal andihe
constitution of the States in which it
existed, but it was swept away atul
without compensation to the owner.
What is there to prevent the people
sweeping away Scully's ownership in

for which must be radical andeffecti ve ?
Jlie people of the Northwest rightly
and justly declare against Chinese la

T. V. Powdorlj, Kanaae City, Mo :
I have just received your telegram
of the ISth instant asking If I will
meet yourself and committee to ar
range a settlement of the pendingjdif
liciilties. As this company now has
contracts and agreements with vari
ous labor unions and organizations,
and are willing to continue to make
such agreements as circumstances may
require with such organizations of its
employes as have shown a disposition
to carry out in good faith their under
takings, smi as it lias bad in tho post
comracu wun your organization, and
Its representatives have heretofore
had conferences with yourself and
other members of your executive com-
!i : .. i. . ; a i
iiure, it is mi i uhi aim courteous
that I should give you the reasons for
tins company now declining to meet
yourselt and your executive commit
toe, which it would have done before
this strike was inauirurated The usual
object of such meetings between rail
way companies, through their repre
sentatives, and commuters of their
employes, is either to discusssuch
differences as may have arisen in or
der that an understanding mav be
reached of the rights and relations
existing between them, and such mu
tual concessions mado as will avoid
strikes and the losses resulting there
from. On the other hand, to settle
and compromise such dill'erences be
tween the parties after tho grievances
have been presented and redress re-
lused, and alter resort lias fully been
had to the strike as the onlv reined.
In the present case neither of the oc
casions lor conference exists, but the
anomaly is presented of a strike
without a redressable grievance, which
was entered upon without notice to
the company, and which has resulted
in the wanton and malicious destruc
tion of the company's pronert v bv vio
lence and incendiarism, and in a most
thestoppagcof its business by threats,
liiiiiiiiuiiimii ami iorre. a review

essential to a full understanding of
the present conditions. The differ
ences between this company and its
employes, resulting in the strike of
March, 18Ko, were settled by the vol
untary intercession of the executive
and the ollicers of the States of Kan
sas ana Missouri, and not witti your
organization, ine agreements subse
quently entered into with committees
of your organization have been faith
fully carried out bv the comnanv.
Minor grievances under these arrange
ments have fromtimo Jto time been
presented, considered by the manage
ment and adiusted in a manner an-
parently satisfactory to the petitioners,
and for the sake of peace and har
mony tins company has repeatedly, on
the demands of your organization,
made changes in its staff bv the re
moval of olhcials entirely satisfactory
to tho company but objectionable to
some of your members. In our meet
ing with yen of last August in New
lork your committee then stated
that no grievances or complaints ex
isted against the Missouri Pacific rail
way on the part of your organization.

men existing, but that it was neces
sary to utilize your organization upon
the Missouri Pacific rond to force an
adjustment of the difficulties then
pending with another corporation
Similar action has been taken by your
organization in tnree instances within
the last eight, months. ' First, in
threatening that the members of your
organization upon tno Missouri I'aeiilc
railway would strike if it continued to
exchange business with the Wabash
road; second, when tho members of
your organization compelled a strike
of a portion of t he employes of this
company in carrying out your boycott
against the Mallory line at Galveston,
iex. ; tniru, in tne present instance,
when the existing strike was forced
upon this company bv the dischariro
of one C. A. Hall by the receivers of
the Texas and Pacific railway, a road
in the hands of the United States
Court, and in the management of
which this company has no voice or
control, a fact which your organiza
tion fully recognized when your
committee maue application to the re
ceivers of that road for the
reinstatement of said employes. In
stances might be cited where endeav
ors have been made to use this com
pany for the purpose of boycotting in
dividuals who had incurred tho dis
pleasure of your organization. An es
pecially aggravated case of the failure
ot your organization to carry out its
agreements was that of the workmen
at the Palestine shops who. in the last
days of February, stopped work on ac
count of an alleged grievance, which
was thereupon adjusted in a manner to
their entire satisfaction, so they re
sumed work with an agreement to con
tinue, under concessions made bv the
company, but withinjtwo days there
after again left their work on tho de
mand of your organization in ordering
the present strike, and without any
grievance whatever against this com
pany. These continued stoppages of
work on this company without cause
.have becomo so frequent that, be-
joiving tne luturo will be as
marked as the past, it .cannot
consent to renew the- agreement

not rest with the management of this

for them to endeavor to act as medi
ators in tho present strike. Thev
have prepared a proposition w hich af
ter consideration has been accepted
by the strikers, and the two Gover
nors left to-night for St. Louis- to lay
it before tho railroad ollicials. The
men agree to return to work on the
basis of the settlement adopted at the
close of the strike a year ago, that is
they will come back on the terms of
agreement in force at the time they
struck, simply making a request
that the ques ion of increas
ing the wages of bridge and
track men lie taken into account. The
matter of Hall's reinstatement on the
lexas and Pacific is not mentioned in
the proposition. Mr. Powderly did
not leave for St. Ixiuis, as he had in
tended, bat is in secret conference
with the executive delegates this
evening, and has not been Inter
viewed since his receipt of Mr. Hoxic's
reply to his request for a meeting.
the general feeling here is one of
strong Iwpo that the intercession of
the State executives will secure a
settlement between the officials and
men, as it did a year ago, and an earlv
conclusion of the strike.

ISPIOIAL TO TBI APPEAL I
IliBMiNiiiiAM, Ai.a., March !. The
street railroad trouble on Eighteenth
street r ached a point to-dav when
Mayor Lake felt it incumbent nnon
him to take action for tho preserva
tion of the peace. The Birmingham
and Pratt Mines Company crossed the
railroads this morning and forced an
issue by putting squads of men to
work all along on the north end of the
street where a beginning was made
yesterday by tho other company. Tho
latter met this move bv distributing
its hands along tho line, too, between
the other squads. Over half a mile of
street was thus disputed. The mayor,
to prevent a collision, had both parties
stopped, counsel for the old company
promising turn to put the matter -into
court at once. This was done this
afternoon by a bill in the Chancery
Court to enjoin the new company.
Defense to the action will be that the
old company's franchise ought to be
treated as forfeited as to Eighteenth
street, because no use has been mmle
of it all these years.
Messrs. George II. Nettleton. M. I,.
Sargent and Will loco Prat t of tho
management of the Kansas Citv. Fort
Scott and Gulf railroad, had a con

Raol of the Georgia Central. It is
fair to conclude that they are working
up some deal to meet the new con
dition that will be created bv the
completion of the Memphis, Itirming
