Th Taxing District Council ought
to pay its laboring force the $2 per
day asked for in the petition present
ed yesterday, for the reason that the
men are not employed full time, be
ing compelled to lose rainy and in
winter very cold days. The Council
ihould pay the people it employs the
best wages possible for a fair day's
work and thus set an example to em
ployers in all branches of business.
Tub Taxing-District Council passed
timely act yesterday in ordering the
opening of new streets and the exten
sion of old, in order to facilitate city
traffic. It is to be hoped THr. Meri
wether will take advantage of this
order, and leave nothing undone that
can Ve done in that line. Now is the
time to do such work, now that prop
erty is comparatively cheap and it is
Id be had at reasonable rates.

LOSS OF LIFE AND DESTLUCTIOX
Sensational Reports From Coosa

Tub issue on gas is fairly joined
and thero is a chance that in the en1
the people may be the gainers in cheap
gas for themselves as well as for public
purposes. For tho present we invite
the particular attention of our readers
to the propositions of the old and'the
now gas company, reminding them
that competition is likely to lessen, if
not utterly wipe out the probabi ity
or possibility of either company being
able to earn a nickel, for once initiated,
the war would be one to the death, in
which no gain could accrue but an im
mediate supply of very cheap gas,
with an ultimate of revenge for the
Btockholders in high-priced gas when
the exhausted companies made terms
by division of.territory or the merging
of one com pany in the other. This is
' to be kept steadily fn view and this
also- that in competition the people
have the surest guarantee of low raes
Memphis has a direct interest in the
opening up of the Indian Territory to
white Bottlers, m other words, to tne
founding- of the State of Oklahoma.
For this the Apf-bal has battled for
years, tn the' hope that the govern
ment would see the justice of a claim
that had it been made by the people
of the Northwest would have been ad
mitted and acted upon long ago, as in
the, ease of Dakota. But we have
waited long and in vain. At last,
however, the Northern press has taken
the matter up and are contending that
as men have rights that cows have
not, the territory now usurpingly con
trolled by the Indians shall be opened
to bona fide settlers under the
homestead act. As the new
York Hrrald puts it: "With the rise
of cattle syndicates the Indian Terri
tory question has assumed a new
phase, and one dangerous to the In
dians of that region. That seventy
nine thousand people should be lef in
possession of forty-one million acres
of the choicest land in the United
States when this vast area Is wanted
bv our own farmers and eagerly pressed
upon is not it elf a reasonable propo
sition. Vested interests must give
way to tho requirements of public use
and benefit But that as the Indians
decrease cattle and not men should
take their place, and that a few cattle
kings should be allowed to subsidize
and bribe the Indians to resist the
march of civilization that is plainly
unendurable." The Democratic party.
as the Herald advises, should take up
this matter and dispose of it in the
only way that ii just and proper.

of North Alabama show that the

reports from above. All the railroad

both sides of Attalla. The mill and lum

point. From Tuscaloosa and Warren
advieett'are serious, though it is be
lieved the worst has passed. Many
houses on either side of the
river have been abandoned, and tho
water is running through the doors
and windows. Some families occupy
the upper storieB of the dwellings and
sUffa and flatboats are used for trans

The water is over all the tracks at the

from Atlanta or on the Louisville and
Nashville road. The damage to vari
ous interest here is slight compara
tively, the business portion of the city
being elevated. The principal loss is
from suspension of work because of
the location of factories in the lower
part of the city. The ga works and
electric light works are submerged
and the city is in darkness,

Judge Douglass is too amiably lax,
if not negligently indifferent, and
takes, wa submit, too large a view of
the right of the people to attend trials
in the Criminal Court, and he seems
to be too indulgent to attorneys and
too lenient in dealing with their abuses
of privilege. The court-room ought
not to be crowded beyond its capacity.
No one should be permitted to rema n
after seating and standing room in the
part railed off for the people is filled,
and an order should be issued against
the filthy habit of covering the floor
with tobacco-stained expectorations.
The man who desires to sit out a trial
should, for the sake of others, impose
upon himnelf so much of restraint as
will tend to purify an atmosphere
that even without that is described as
foul beyond expression. There is not
one of our court where dignity and
decorum are more essential than
in that in which the life and
liberty of the citizen are put
in jeopardy. Property is sacred with
too many it usurps the place of God
but life and liberty are more sacred,
and where they are put in jeopardy
should be treated of and with a spirit
becoming their value to the individual
.u n-,,11 aa to the community. The
Criminal Court-room should be some
thing moro than a cesspool for idle
men. It should be clean and sweet
smelling, and the conduct of every
body about it, from the judge to the
humblest officer, should comport with
the most serious business that can
come to a court involving the lom of
life and liberty.
the Tuscaloosa Cotton factory and
work had to be abandoned. Just De-
