THE ORIEL MURDER OF AS IV
The Woman Mips Oat or Bed
Esctpri From the
A cue ol what seeme tram the toitl
mooy to be a" plain cue of child mur
der was reported at the Sta' ion-Hens,
yesterday by Cbiel Cleary.
It appears that a woman nsmed
Comfort Walker, wko ha been wash
iug for the family of Cbief Clay,
complained of teing ill Sunday, and
when Mrs. Cleary went lo see her late
in the evening she acknowledged that
a child bad been born to her. She
afterward told Mrs. Cleary where the
child was bidden, and had it brought
ont and laid on a table in her room.
Justice Buttenbeig was sent for,
and when he reached the houm
found the mother in bed . and
the child lying upon a cot rear
her. She said she had been
intimate with a mulatto to whom "he
was engaged to bs married. The
child's head was examined, and tlie
skull seemed to have been broken.
Justice Buttenberg and Chief Cltary
left the house to imut up a jury, aud
when they returned, at the expiration
of an hour, the mother Lad Uitmp
feared. Iuimtdia'e search wai made
for her, but was unavailing. The po
lice were notitied, but at midnight had
failed to discover the murderess,
thontrh it is a matter cf wonder how
ehe managed to ni inter sullioient
strength to leave her bed, and of
greater wonder still how she could
eusain the faigue cf llight long
enough to take her out of the reach
of the Memphis police. It is a rare
compliment to the department.

Tboae Ungnaed. In Ibe treat
Amntticgof wotkiegmen waa held
at the Court-HouBO Sunday afternoon
to take action in rfgard to tbe great
railroad Etnke. The meeting WfS
called to order by Mr. H. P. Hanson,
who made a btiet but glowing sources.
Short speeches were made bv several
others present, and a purse t f !U was
ra;eed for the relief of the strikers.
Ou motion nf Joeeph Pickering a
committee of Ave, with H. P. HariBon
as chairman, was appointed to to'.icit
subneriptions from tbe citizens gen
erally for the bent fit of the strikers of
tbe Missouri Pacific railroad. The com
mittee was appointed, and comprises
tie following well known Knights of
Lbor: II. r. Hanson, Joseph Picker
ing. George Grant, John J. Conners
and W.I1. Cli pper.
The following resolutions were of
fered and adopted unanimously:
lietolvril, That we, as wcrkingmen of
Metnphie, take this means and adopt
this occasion in which to tender oar
ticcsie sjmpathy to the toiling men
of tbe ilistouri facinc raiiroaa wno
are now engaged in a gigantic strug
gle for their rights as freemen of the
American republic, and we hope for
a speedy and triumphant adjustment
of the diflicu'ty.
RemlvetJ, That we, as workingmen,
being neither prejudiced nor unduly
biased, consider tbe demand of the
striking employes of the Gould system
ot railroads to be just arm eqmuoie,
and we regard them as sorely op
pressed victims of an enormous, vora
cious and grasping monopoly, the
leading spmt of which is that most
notorious of American capital sharks.
Jay Gould, whose prime object is to
press tnese nctortunaie men runner
into tbe quickfands of poverty and
eloughs of deiprndency.
HrMred, That we, as brothers in tne
fields of toil, pledge the strikers oa th
Gould system of raihoads our most
earnett support in sentiment and
money, and bid them Godspeed in
tbeir heroic effort to achieve for them-
selves and their brothers throughout
Ihe Union a signal triumph.
Alter the adoption of the recolutions
the meeting adjourned t) meet next
Sunday at tha same time aud place,
unless the strike shall have been ad-
j ui ted tcf re that time.
The meeting was an nnrmomous one
and was chaia Jerized by an absence
of anything like extreme sentiment or
intemperate utterances. The mteting
ftiily illustrated the cardinal idea of
the Knights of Labor, that "the in
jury of one is tne couct-ra of all."

m OF HIS SEEKING.
THE RECENT INTERVIEW WITH
ATTORNEY GENERAL LEA.
Aa Attempt to I'se a Simple, Inno-
ceat CoBvematlon to Hit
On Tuesday last the Appeal con
t lined an interview with Attorney
General Ben. J. Lea, which (oiue per
tons are endeavoring to use to hia dis
advantage by striving to make it ap
pear that it was solicited by him. The
f ict is ae stated in the introduction to
the interview. The reporter met Judge
Lea for the first time in the oflice of
Justice J. M. Coleman, who intro
duced them to esch other. The con
versation natnia'ly turned upon poli
tics, Judge Lea being a candidate for
Judge of tbe Supreme Court, and,
while nothing was given in confidence
on one side or the other, nothing was
said by either ahont publishing the
convert a'ion as an interview. It wai
not until several hours after that the
reporter decided to write it ont. The
following letter fro-n Judge Lea, giv
ing the substance of the published in
terview and explaining parts of it, is
cordially indorsed as strictly correct.
To tbe Editors of the Appeal:
My attention has just been called to
an Interview with me published in
last Tue'diiy'a Appeal, which is liable
to be cont trued as an ittick upon the
members of the Supreme Court. Such
wee net my intention, and whit I did
say was not liable tj such construc
tion. 1 was paving through Memphis
on Monday and did not know or sus
pect that I was being interviewed.
What I did say, and all I did say, was,
upon being introduced to a gentleman
I was asked if 1 had heard any talk of
a clean sweep, and I said "I had, but
more here than elsewhere; but some
of those urging a clean sweep are
making a very unjust accusation
against the court that is, that they
do not work. They bear cases from U
to 1 o'clock; in the evening examine
the records, sometimes ot many hun
dred pages, and at night write opin
ions, sometimes until very lilt.
Whatever might be eaid in criticism
of their mode and m inner of
transacting business the acensition
that they did not work was unjust. I
had thought at tim"e they were over
working themselves. I thought a
remedy for this, and which, wouui
aleo ftcilitato the hearing of the
docket, was for tbe Court to dec de
more cases f rom the bench, wnsre
the Juduee. after full argument by
counsel, were eatitfled a to the result,
the rase should be decided from tin
bench, and then there would be iet-r
opinions to write and fewer for publi
cation. Mv ontnion was to decide all
cases f oua tlie bench whore tho
Court was eatii tied of the result and
no new principle was involved. In
cases wheie new questions wen in
volved, then, cf course, litem should
be written opinions, but where an ad
judged principle was applicable t j the
facts of the caee I thought the opinion
of tbe Court should be announced
from the bench." I was then aBknd
if the statute did not require written
opinions in all caiep, and eaid: "The
Court olten dacidos cates from the
bench, and. while it wou'd bo more
gratifying U lawyers to have written
opinions in all their casoe, yet, i
It BHUrtieil that u me rrni
of tausea could be thus fciiiui,d
they would not object." I mentioned
the name ol no memoer oi trie court
as an exception. I was then asked
whose tame was more frequently
beard is a candidate for Governor. I
remarked that having been lately at
court I had not heard tbe subject vety
frequently mentioned. The papers, as
I saw, bad been more, frequently dis
cussing the merits and demerits of
Taylor, Dibrell and Looney- Further,
during tbe conversation, J said Kist
Tennessee wouifl very earnestly claim
the Governorship, and would propose
the namee of several good men. It
waa suggested tliat some ot the news
papers were charging Gen, Dibrell to
East Tennessee as a parti of his old
Congressional pistrict wai in Eatt
Tennessee. I remarked that I did not
think Eatt Tennessee would hardly
care to be charged with a candidate
living in another division. The can
didates were net discussed, and no
preferences expressed. I did net at
ttck theco jrt or any member there
of, nor any candidate for the
Supreme Judgeship, and ehnl!
make the canvass without didng so
and bIib.I1 endVavor to keep out of
everybody's Uuht excqi. my own. For
the members of the court, ro'.h as in
dividuals and as judges, I have the
highest respect, and whenever it is
necessary to my unless to nfack
tbem, or any one of them, or any can
didate for the judgeship, theu 1 shall
decline tbe race. Keepectmiiv,
