Monopoly, monofoly, monopoly ev
erywhere lifts up it fool bead and
perperUtw its greedy deeds. The
latett cpecimen is one that draws the
whole tity of New York, and every
fami'y within it, ioto the insatiable
maw ol a vast coal combination. On
Monday last eleven men engaged in
the eoa'. trade, mot together at a house
on Eleventh street and decided to
fleece every house, fictary, church,
and wherever the people of New York
congM -gate for their own benefit. They
decided how much coal should be
mined in the mines that supply New
York, how much should be offered in
market, and what the price should bn.
They determined that there should be
no competition, but that the vaiisus
coal corporations should band together
for a vatt monopoly and bleed New
York for the bent fit of their own
pockets. This is the way that great
cormorant and danger to the pub
lic welfare, the millionaire, is
manufactured. Such are not pro
duce;; they make gain, not by
what they produce, but by what tbcy
monopoliie. While sitting together
font or five hours these eleven men
"fixed things" as they chose, nnd the
the consequence is that to-day every
family in New York has to pay 25
cento ton mora for coal than they
paid laetwetk. Imagine what a sum
11 that vast heap of "5 cent added to
the profit already muking will come
to, and see bow eleven men can fleece
a whole city as a flock is shorn of its
wool. Bee how easily is (ccompliBhed
the work of making coal dearer to
every poor widow and starving family
la that vast population. How bard is
it for those poor people to get 25 cents
a day added to their small wages.
They ntuBt make applications, endure
rebnff-t, engago in strike h and suffer
hunger and privation during the
strike. Bat eleven gentlunm meet
in chat together in a cnnforUble par
lor a few hour, and at their dictation
the competition of ccul merclianti is
destroyed ami the population of New
York compelled, evory time they buy
a load of coal, to give 25 cents
in tribute, iu order that a certain num
bar of monopolists may get rich. How
easily does the monopolist secure his
unjust tribute, how hardly does the
industrious workman secure pay
enough to support his family iu com
fort) This is how the rich get richer
and the poor poorer. Is the procfni
to go on until the majority of the peo
ple la the United States are reduced
to atitntlon?
INKELIABLK POST.
Tie Now York Poat is doing woiul
discredit to the high position that
paper formerly held by opposing, not
only with what it regards as argu
ment, but with rancor and bitternose,
the bill before Congress for enabling
the Southern States to subdue the
tide of illiteracy entailed upon its
voting population by the colored per
sons ia these 8tatea being constituted
citizens. The South feels the danger
of a large portion of the voters being
unah'e to read the names of the can
didates they vote for, and the neces
sity of fitting the newly constituted
cithern for the responsible duties of
citiienship. Spite of the dilllculties
with which war and defeat over
whelmed them, i'a people eoUbliohed
schools and initiated the work of edu
cation. But while, from want of
means, that work is limited, and ad
vance is mads slowly, the new citisun
is not delayed in the exer
cise of his privileges. Ignoraut,
as he unfortunately is, his vote upon
public aflairs counts for as much as
the vote of the philosopher or the
scientist. This wcrk of education
does not proceed in proportion with
the necessity that exists for it. The
need is pressing, present and impor
tunate. The nicsssity of education in
the fcvuth gcei beyond the present
power of the South to supply. Give
time, and with that and good will, all
can be done; but there is no time.
Every election the vote of ignorance
may do mischief it will long take the
vote ol knowledge to repair. The
need ia a prossing need and a present
need, we repent. We are uaing no
spider-web arguments, but mention
solid and bard, if disagreeable (acts.
The Pott't filmy threats are gossamer
that will not bind and fetter the
the might of fact that i peaks thunder
toned for the passage of the bill for
aiding education in the South.
Ol TLETtt AUtlfl.
The plan of improving the river by
making openings here and there at its
Fides to allow a portion of the water
to run out of it has had full inveatiga
, tioc in Congress and free discussion
in the prea and scientific publications.
The conclusion deliberately ariived
at, the most eminent practical engi-'-
neere concurring, is that outlets would
i list only fail to improve the condition
of the river, but that they would cer
taia'.j increase the evils that render
improvement neccary. This is a
settled point about which there is no
disagreement among competent
j a ik-es, yet the Louisiana levee con
tactor to little understands the mat
ter that, at his instance, a bill has
' ! .-ea presented in Congress to spend
J'X),000 in making an outlet at Fcrt
Philip, f.W0,0O!) for another to
Lake Borgne, and f300,000 for a
third through IJyou riKjoemine.
This is an cxhibitioa of folly and of
inability to understand demonstrated
fact that is amazing. The New Or
leans Timet mj the till merits no at
tention f oil Congress, and is not a
ineasar e thsl nay number of people in
Louisiana desire. It is just a speci
niea cf the impenetrability of some
human underloadings to the p'uin
teachings of common senHe.
TROUBLE IS THE HALKANa.
Turkey and its dependencies and re
lated Statue are a continual threat of
war to Korope, and Iiusoian and Aus
trian intrigues help to foettr and pro
voke trouble. The Balkans are un
quiet, Bulgaria, Servia, Bosnia, Mont
enegro, Greece and the rest are all
uneasy, aid no one can tell what a
week may bring forth among them.
Greece still threatens to make forcible
attempts to gain possession of the ter
ritory that was allotted to it by the
treaty of Berlin, but is withheld by
force. English men-of- ar are watch
ing the Greek fleet to prevent it at
tacking Turkish vessel 3, but that flett
has retired among the inlands where
there are no telegraph lines, and no
one can till what sudden attempt it
may make any day. But for the set
tlement of the Bulgarian quarrel by
c i eating it King, Alexander, Gov
ernor of the province that annexed it
self to it, Russia and Austria would
probably lave been t war with
each other before now. Russia
ia still nurxing disturbance by
insisting that Alexander's governor
ship is but for five years. Alexander
and his people contend that it is for
an indefinite time. A Russian and
Austrian war would probably drag in
Germany and England, with a de
struction of the Turkish empire in
Europe as a result. Servia has
brought contempt upon itself for its
unprincipled atttck upon Bulgaria,
but it is still burning and fuming for
more territory, and Austria, which
wishes to extend it dominions by
taking Salonica, with Its seaport, is,
though not avowedly, supporting
Servia, as a fulcrum upcu which to
work ita own lever. Russia is stead
fast in ite design to possess Constan
tinople, rule the lljepborus, and have
ascena to (he Meditsnanon ses, and
it never ceases stirring op trouble in
the Balkans, with a view lo accom
plish its determined purpoBe. Evi
dently the formation, of a sub
stantial Slate by consolidating
some of the Balkan provinces,
and io creating a formidable
power that would bo a bulwark to
Turkey sgaicst Auttria and Russia, is
the "nly sifcguard for Constantinople,
and to Homo such conclusion events
may yet force the policy of Europe,
Could (lis Turkish power be driven
out of Europe, and Constantinople
made the capital of the new Balkan
Stats, UuHiia would be effectually
checkmated and Autttitu encroach
ments pnt an end to. The eubstantial
victory gained by Bulgaria is an omen
of peace, and if Turkey wonld treat
Greece fairly and surrender Thesaaly
and a portion of Macedonia to satisfy
its claims, a more settled condition of
things would result nnd the prospect
for permanent peace would be promis
ing. But Turkey is not blessed with
auch foresight and is fast traveling
toward ruin. As things stand the con
dition of the Balkans Is very unsatis
factory, and the possibility still holds
that a great war may break out which
will end in the Turkish European
power being extinguished, but who
in auch an event would get Constanti
nople ia more thanjinortal can foresee.
THK KIBINCI HOUTHERN K8TI
MATK. In the days when everybody in the
South hated the blanked Yankees,
how ul'erly amazed they would have
been if told that the best cf all ways
to be ill a and oppose the Yankees
would be to free the negroes. If to
Mil a and oppose the Yankees con
sists in Lainpering and obstructing
their trade, certainly that liberation
has done it. Continually Eastern pa
pers are calling attention to inroads
made by the South, in which also the
West participates, upon the trade of
the East. Here is a speciman from
the Boston leather frtwrtrr: "Carroll
D. Wright, whoee watchful interest in
the manufacturing industries of New
England makes him keenly observant
of everything that helps or hinders
their thrift, called attention, a few
weeks ago to the fact that the people
of the South are making great progress
in the development of mechanical art,
and arc likely to be formidable com
petitors of their Eastern rivals."
And what has the South done
to infringe upon the long least of
Eastern trade supremacy? Mr. Wright
specifies geographical advantages of
essential value, sources of material,
avenues of consumption, the advan
tage of mutual traffic ; their customers
are their neighbors.' So many cir
cumstances are in favor of the South
that the eminent gentleman warns hit
brother Easterners that the leadership
of New England in manufactures is to
b contested in a way that will take
all their dexterity to hold it; that the
South is splendidly equipped for the
Strug J a. that it his fine factories, the
newest machinery, men of brains, the
brains replenished by intelligent ex
perience. Under these circumstances
Mr. Wright recommends that the pro
duction of fine and superior fabrics
should bs entered upon. The advice
is good for the present, but does the
author of it fail to perceive that the
same Southern enargy that has
wrought the changes that have taken
place in the Smith, will insure also a
Southern production of the best and
the finest. The lining estimate the
South isattaining cannot fail to brit:
about great changes and much in
creaM'I value for Southern real estate.
MEMPHIS DAILY
BR. GLADSTONE'S FLAK
HIS STATEMENT III THE HOl'SE
OK COMMONS.
Bill for the Fntnre Government of
Ireland Bismarck In the
Reichstag.
London, March 50. Mr. U'a'lstone
and all the members attended the
Cabinet meeting, which ended at 3:15
o'c lock this afternoon, after a Besaic n
which lasted an hour and a quarter.
After the adjournment Mr. Gladstone
took a drive through the park. Mr.
Chamberlain and Mr. Trevelyao left
the meeting together, and had a pri
vate conference. It was observed that
all the ministers looked serious, bith
before and altar the meeting.
' oladstorb
appeared in the House of Commons
tnis atierncoo. Referring to the an
nouncement made in bis bobalf yes
terday by Sir William Vernor Ilar
conrt, Gladstone said the statement
he would make April 8th would take
the form of the introduction of a bill
frr the future government of Ireland.
The announcement produced a sensa
tion. It is now believed the Premier
has, in deference to the opposition in
his own party, decided to abandon,
temporarily, at lea-t, his scheme for
buying out the landlords in Ireland,
and make home role in some form,
nure and simple, the basis of his
Irish proposals.
OPPOSITION TO PABNXLU
The Loyal and Patriotic Union is
forming branches ia.the colonies to
carry on the work, creating general
opposition to the I'arnellite demand
aad Gladstone's schemes for reform in
Ireland. They intend to accomplish
this work by agitition, both on the
stump and by circnlation of literature.
A number of public meetings have al
ready been arranged throughout Aus
tralia by the Union.
FBOTKST AGAINST COURT DRESS.
Neatly 100 members of the House
of Commons have sinned a memorial
to Speaker Peel praying that the rale
requiring court dress at official levees
be abolished.
Mil. GLADSTONE
will, on Monday or Tuesday next, lay
on the table in the House of Com
mons bis motion in relation to the
government of Ireland.
SIR CBAHLKS DILKR,
in an address at Chelsea to-night, said
be believed the Irish difllculty could
be settled by giving the Irish people
full management of all purely Irish
ufiVrj. In preference to the new de
parture advocated, he favored Mr.
ltut's's scheme. The present system
ol government in Ireland was weak
and unsuitable. If the holdings of
the landlords were purchased by tho
government, the latter ought to pur
chase all other property whose value
would be aflecteu by the concession cf
hernial tile. He was strongly opposed
to the purchase of the land.
THKCRIrJIM ONLY INTENSIFIED.
A more careful study of Gladstone's
statement throws doubt upon the be
liif that the introduction of a home
rule bill would necessarily shelve the
land purchase bill. Cbamberlain to
night said the discussion in to-day's
Cabinet only intensified the crisis. It
had not, however, precipitated any
resignations. A final effort will prob
ably be made the coming week to ef
fect a compromise between the Pre
mier andithe disputants in the Cabinet.
Mr. Goschen dined, at Windsor this
evening, having been summoned as
Privy Councillor by the Queen for
consultation and advice.
THK GOVERNMENT'S iUPPORTKRS
have been privately assured that the
government's Irish programme has
been settled by the Cabinet. The
home rule measure will be introduced
first, followed immediately by the
Una bi'l. Both measures, if passed
by the House of Gammons, will be
presented to the House of Lords to
gether. Chamberlain and Trevelyan
will remain in tho Cabinet until the
home rule bill has been tabled. Glad
stone dispatched a messenger to the
Queen this evening with an important
communication, which it is believed
has reference to the home rule ques
tion. Blaniarck la the Kclcnatag.
Berlin, March 25. Prince Bis
marck appeared in the Reichstag to
day. Referring to the criticisms on
his recent speech attacking the oppo
sition for combating the Crown's pol
icy in Posen, in which he was accused
of meditating a coup d'etat, he re
affirmed he was not. He took occa
sion, however, to warn the Reichstag
of what might be its fate if it stood in
the way of Germany's piogress. The
Bundestag, he reminded his hearers,
was founded on treatiea and laws.
Yet Germany was contented to see it
fall, and the Reichstag might poesibly
have a similar end if it refused to ful
fil its duties to the empire.
The debate on the second reading of
the spirit monopoly bill was begun in
the Reichstag to-day. Prince Bis
marck insisted upon the necessity of
increasing the imperial revenues. It
was impossible, he raid, to increase
the revenues by direct taxation.
Spirits was especially favorable for
taxation. If the monopoly bill should
be rejected, the government would in
troduce a bill to tax the consumption
of spirits. He regretted the manner in
which the majority in the Reichstag
treated government bills. It waa
doubtful whether with such a ma
jority the Reichstag would even tie
pivot upon which German unitv
ahoald revolve. If the Reichstag did
not better comprehend its duty, he
feared for the future of the empire in
the event of complications with foreign
countries', though he saw no immediate
danger. He would also say that he
foresaw no danger in the spring of
1870. If the strength of the empire
waa likely to be put to severe teats, the
present was the time to provide for
contingencies. The adoption of the
spirit monopoly bill would strengthen,
while ita rejection would prejudice the
empire. If the Re'ch-tag should al
reject the consumption tax. it would
be necessary to introduce a license tax
in Prussia.
After a speech by Herr R'chter
Prince Bismarck again spoke. He re
ferred to Herr Kic'iter's attitude of
opposition and slid: "If I am re
proached with inducing the Emperor
to go to Canossa, I reply that he has
before this experienced a worse
Canestsa in the Reichstag."
The debate was adjourned until
Saturday. Bishop Kopp has given
notice of an amendment to the ec
clesiastical bill, eliminating the rlause
forbidding the appointment of teach
ers in seminaries to whom the govern
ment hr.s heretofore taken exception.

Cork, March 28. A large meeting
of Loyalists waa held here to day.
Three thousand tickets of admission
bad been issued, and as the holders
presented themselves at the dcors of
the meeting ball they were closely
scrutinized, in order to prevent the
entrance of persons not in accord with
theobjtc'aof the gathering. Lords
Hamilton, Bandon and Castletoo
made vigorous speeches agaiutt home
rule, while the crew ds outride cheered
Gladstone and Parnell and sang "God
Save Ireland." When the meeting
broke np there was a collision between
the opposing parties, and sticks and
atonci were freely used.
Labor Troablva la llelalani.
Bhl'hmkls, March 20. A mob of
strikers marched to-day by the palace
cf King Leopold, end there in a body
sang the "Marsei las." Beyond this
they created no disturbance. A few
arrests were made for disorderly con
duct. The reports received bere of dis
turbs noes in connection with the la
bor strikes have, in many instances,
been greatly exaggerated. The great
mass of the people do not sympathize
with the rioters, and the knowledge
that such is the case las had the effect
of dampening the ardor of the disor
derly portion of the populace. Ad
vices from Liege say that the town is
quieter and that work has been par
tially resumed. At Cfaarleroi, how
ever, the situation is report
ed to be worse than ever.
A number of . miners attempt d
to descend into the pits, but were pre
vented from doing so by the strikeis
Tioops were called ont to protect the
men who were willing to work, and a
sbarp fight ensued in whioh many of
the mob were wounded. The gleHj
woikers' strike has become general. A

factory at Bandoux hen been burned to

you give a little space to an old and

and permit a new aspirant for political
fame to give your readers a little gos
sip of the ways and doings of our part
of this land of corn and cotton, and
not forgetting thejhog to eat the corn?
The businem men of our town are
doing as well as can be expected at
this season of the year. Of course the
country trade is not so brisk the
farmers are busy at borne and have no
time for trading or shopping now ex
cept Saturday, ''When everybody and
his hired man comes to town to talk
politics and buy garden seed.
This summer will be one continued
political barbecue. The man who has
the most shoats will have a harvest
The fat shoat will be in demand. If
each candidate will furnish one shoat
for the barbecue we oan ask all our
neighboring counties to help us get
them out of sight. Our Register's
office is the one that seems to be moat
anxiously looked after, only fifteen
candidates, for there are some of our
best citizens offering to accept the
office on easy terms. Our foremost
candidate for Attornoy-Geucral is Mr.
Harry Young. He is stirring things
np lively, and if elected will be an
honor to his constituents.
The office of Sheriff stands next in
the interest of the people. The two
leading candidates are Don H. Smith
and Thomas J. Chambers. They
stand at pcerent about neck aad neck,
and it is hard to form an idto which
will lead in the home-stretch. The
next in interest is the County Court
Clerkship. We will bet on Mr. JoeT.
Talley for that office. There are many
promisee to be made and broken be
tween this and that eventful day in
August; so many friends to look
after those that have been to til
strangers to the candidate are now old
acquaintance, and they are so sorry
that business has kept tbem apart so
long.
Everything and everybody is inter
ested ; even the country mules seem
to be looking forward to the good time
coming, and most any day during the
coming campaign if our citizsns could
only understand the mule language
they would hear them urging the
claims of their owners to office or some
of their owners' friends, for if their
friends and kindred get in that same
country mule has been told by other
mules in town that he (the country
mule) stands a chance to get an ap

are better than dry straw or cotton

DECLINE IX THE MOVEMENT OF
GENERAL MERCHANDISE,
As Compared With the Previous
Week The Unsettling I tied
of Strikes.
New Youk, March 20. The move
ment of general merchandise through
out the United fctau-s, an reKiled by
wire to ItrwlMrtt f, shows a decline as
compared with the prect-ding wee.
This is largely due to the
continuation of the strike on the
Southwestern railways and the un
settling of confidence generally in in
dustrial and trans)ortution lines. lie
ports on the number of striking oper
atives in the country nhows a total of
52,500, against 62,100 on March 13th.
The decline in the number striking
is about K5O0 within two weeks, but
10,000 striking dress and suit makers
at New York have raised the aggre
gate. The Gould road striking em
ployes do not exceed 5000, with 4500
others thrown out of work. The de
mand for money at the interior lias
fallen off, hut rates ore upheld. Mer
cantile col eetions are generally back
ward. Country roiulu throughout the
West are generally heavy, and trading
is restricted in consequence. At
most points wpi ing trade is only mod
erately active, though Pittsburg, De
troit and Omaha report improvement.
In general, operations are mainly for
actual requirement. -
The dry goods movement is not
quite as active as last week. Prices
are lirm on small stocks. Deliveries
are mostly on old contracts. Prints
are lower in price. Wool sales are
light and quotations weak. The new
clip promises well.
The new anthracite coal pool threat
ens to affect the pig-iron industry un
favorably, through higher prices asked.
Its binding effect depends entirely on
the work of the presidents of the com
panies interested. Bituminous coal is
higher, owing to the scarcity of En
glish coal bound hither to fill tide
water contracts.
Sugars are lower, on account of
heavy stocks.
Coffee, is barely steady on a light de
mand. Wheat has been lower on free spec
ulative selling of options in the face
of tho first notable decline in stocks
and receipts at the Northwest.
Flour lias not been so strong.
Corn and oats have been dull. Tho
prospect in California is for a large
w heat crop, to be harvested unusually
early.
