Columbia United Sta'.es Senator to
fill th place made vacant by the
retaliation ct the lion. Howtll E.
Jackoon. The special dispatch from
Na'bville published in yesterdays
Appul foreshadowed the appoint
ment of Gen. Whitthorne. Indeed,
th; tone of the dispatch plainly in
dicated that our correspondent waa in
possession of the fact that Gov. Bate
bad selected Gen. Whitthorne, bnt
wrs no? atlibtr'y to speak by authori
ty. Gen. W. C. Whitthorne waa born

Democrat In 181 Gen. Whitthorne
was a candidate for re-election to the
eat he had so long and ably filled in the
House of Representatives. While he
wa the strongest man in the nominat
ing convention he was not able to se
cure the requisite two-thirds majority,
and after several days' balloting and
an adjournment for two weeks the
convention again convened and nom
inated the lion. James D. Richardoon
of Rutherford county, and as a conse
)umi,: Gee. WhitlLorne has not been
a member of Congrefs since the 4th ot
March, 1885. He made a national
reputation, while in (Jsngrefs. As
chairman of the C nimittee on Naval
Affair he developed great abili
ties and untiring energy.
Hi? exposure of Robeson's
corruptions as Hecre'ary of the Navy
attracted the attention of the whole
country. Ho made hi oinelf so famil
iar with naval allairs that he was
'.rongly recommended for the posi
tion of Rectfttry of the Navy in
Cleveland's Cabinet. Gen. Whit
thorne has always lie?n a true and re
liable Democrn', and his appointment
a Vnited Slates Senator wi'.l meet
with pipular favor in a'l sections of
th State. His record, both private
and public, is clean, and his short
crer in the 8enat will be a fitting
cliir.ii to a long, useful and brilliant
life mnt in the public service.
While introducing several general
improvements in the manner of rol

tariff bill before Congro-n. which will
give rise to a long debate, has (or its
more Important object, as far hi the
genenv' public is concerned, the free
dmiion of certain raw materials
usd in our manufactures. Readors
who Diideraund the effect of freeing
nch raw material will be able to com
prehund the bearing of ihe debate
whan it takes place, and will couipre
hnd what will be the effect of ad.
ni1t:ir.g sneh material free of tax. It
can raedily b? nndenstood that if the
K.vlish were to restrict their import
of cotton by tnxing it they would he
restricting the manu'acture of tot
t n produc'p, and the lota of
trade in cusrquence wonld
he very rua&y tiu.es greater than the
gain by the proceeds of the tax. There
sre many things besides cotton where
a pimiiar t:x would cause a similar
Jots. With oivbcIyp. there are vai
vn articles, "raw muteriuls" they are
called, which if untaxed coet little
canriaintively, but which American
e ill and labor can make cf high
value. This ndJed va'ue gives em
p'oyment to cor workmen and profit
to oar manufacturer,!. To tax such
material ia evidently impolitic, for the
loas to oar trade is much greater to the
country than the gain by the tai.
Such being the caw, the reader may
ask, who would oppo;e a bill taking
olT Car that a eo wkchievous?
There ae always persons who profit
by such taxei, as there are inter
ests in England, the linen manu
factnrwn, for instance, that wonld
reap aa advantage from a tax on rot-
ton. The reeder can judge for him
self whether ppecial and comparative
ly small in'erests iught to be pro
tected by a tax that deprive the coun
try at largs of th bene fV. of admitting
free row material for our manu.act
nres. When the general interests of
the country are on one side, and the
special interests of a small particular
claw are on the other, there ought to
be no hesitation as to which should
be preferred. Take salt as an illustra
tion. Syracuse and another place or
two are benefited by taxing imported
salt On the other hand, the farmer
who makes batter and cheese, the
packer of hogs, the packer of fish.
nd many others, inclnding every
householder in the land, are benefited
by having cheap salt. Those
who pat up hogs, fish and other
articles in salt for exportation, have
their trade restricted and their profits
cut down by the difficulty of telling
In tbe foreign market in competition
with the packers of other nations
where talt is admitted free, as raw
material. Also tbe restriction of ex
port by the operation rf the tax is so
much labor left nnemployed that, but
for tbe tax. would find work. Under
such circumstances can any unhinged
person say the Halt tax ought to be
maintp.ined and a reform of detects in
the tariff be denied ? To the working
people, the removal ot taxation from
raw material is of the utmost im
portance. Our toiling class, if given
II the work to do tbey want and
ought t) have, would produce very
ronch more than can be consumed at
home. This makes a foreign market

Washinotow, April 10. To-day was
the twenty-fourth anniversary of the
emancipation of the slaves in the Dis
trict of Columbia, and the event was
celebrated in a somewhat unusual
manner. The colored people disa
greed among themselves as to how the
celebration should be conducted, and
as a result divided into two factions,
ono headed by W. C. Chaee, editor of
a colored newspaper, and the other by
Perry Carson, who was a delegate, to
the Republican National Convention.
Kach party made elaborate arrange
ments for a parade and a public meet
ing at night, and each endeavored to
excel the display of the other. Tho
Chace party completed its programme
first, and managed to secure for their
parade the services of the principal
colored military organizations of tho
lristrict and throe colored companies
fr m lialtimore, bennies several
civic organizations. The Carson
procession did not include as
many military companies, but it
had more bands of music and was
narticularlv strone in civic oruraniza
tions, foremost of which were the
Hod Carriers Union and the em
ployes of the brick-yards. Each
procession contained several waeon
loads of colored women, dressed in
white and colored dresses, reoresent
ing the Goddess of Liberty, Queen of
May, etc. llie Carson procession
also had mounted on wheels a United
States yacht, borrowed from the navy
for the occasion, and which was
christened "W. C. Whitney," in honor

feeling ran high, and it was feared
that trouble would ensue in case the
the two processions should come to-
go her. Fortunately nothing of the
kind occurred. The two processions
formed in di tic rent sections of the
city, and although both hud so'ected
pretty much the same lino of march,
they moved over it at different times
arid without collision. In view of
the lack of harmony between tho
two parties the President positively
refused to review either procession.
Both passed in front of the
wtiito-iiouse, nut mounted po
licemen guarded tne gate
nnd prevented their entering
the grounds. The President, through
ins private secretary, nad previously
notified the chairman of the opposing
committees that it would give liini a
pleasure to accept a joint invitation to
review one procession m winch all
could amicably participate, but that ho
rould not take sides in thequarrel, and
therefore declined to accept either of
the invitations to review the parade.
A strong effort was made to reconcile
the diflerences between tho two fac
tions aud have them unite in ono
demonstration so as to secure the hon

part in the meetings.
The chairman inquired whether
there had been any expectations that
Mr. Ilolteon would use his ollicial in

quietly expressed wish in manufact

Gould will not stand in the way of the
revival of business any longer, and
that be will consent to the settlement
of differences which will remove all
causes for labor disturbances in the
Southwest. An immense amount of
businwss is being held back at this
time, and jobbers and manufacturers
of all kinds are anxious to get hold of
it. Telegraphic orders have been re
ceived for the delay of shipment of
textile goods and manufactured pro
ducts of various kinds. The iron
trade 111 Eastern Pennsylvania is not
apparently effected by the agitation,
mil. uiucib iu iiul coming in up 10
expectation. Prices are firm through
out, as mills and furnaces are fur over

effects for som little time to come.
Steel rails are$.".iiin small lots; mer

little foreign material is arriving.
Tho manufacturers of carpet, ho
siery, dress goods, cloth and silks re
port a steady and moderate demand
lor all kinds of standard goods, but
the demand is not up to exjiected
limits owing to the unwillingness of
retailers to order heavily at this time.
Over $2,000,000 has been invested in
silk mills within a year, and further
investments will be made this sum

this city for carpet making and among

summer will exceed last year's. Wool
is declining in price and demand, and
foreign receipts of wool and woolen
yarn are heavy.
Commercial failures have declined
this year as against last in the ratio of
forty to thirty-four. The number of
strikes is declining. Provisions and
cereals are declining in prices. The
industrial situation is improving The
anthracite coal trade is sti'l expanding

placing of a number of larire orders bv
dealers in all Eastern cities. The pro
duction will be ample for all probable
'lhe labor situation east of the Mis

Dr. Thomai 0'Reillr, Chairman, eto., St.
Deab Sib I am in receipt of your
letter of the 15th instant, inclosing a
copy of tbe preamble and resolution
adopted at a citizens' meeting, held at
the court-house in this city on the
13th instant, and requesting me "to
appoiLt or cans the proper authority
to appoint a committee of three of
the resident directors of the South
western railroad rvstem in conformity
with said resolution, and cause the
names of tbe rane to be immediately
reported ts Dr. Thomas O'Reilly, pres
ident of said meeting.
it r. Hoxie then quotes the resolu
tion adopted by the meeting which
provides for the appointment of nine
persons to repr&ent the three inter
ests involved, the railway?, tbe citi
zens and unemployed railroadmen,
aud then proceeds 83 follows:
The premise upon which tbe propo
sition for the appointmeit of such a
committee rettiis the statement in
the preamble to the resolution that
"the trade and commerce of the city
of St. Louis, aid the interstate com
merce through St. LouiS to and from
all of the trade points of the Missouri
Pacific, and of the St. Louis, Iron
Mountain and Southern rail
ways, has been for over a
month. S'ld is still obstructed.
with no immed ste sign of said roads
complying with or being able to com'
ply with their duty to the pub'ic as
common currier?. I must respect
fully call your attett oa, and, thiouh
vou. tie auction ol the citizens par
ticipating in the meeting of the 13 h
inst.. ol which von were Chairman, to
the fact that the railways constituting
the Southwestern system are now in
full operation, and were in fact at the
time the resolution was presented by
tbe managers of that meeting for the
aonroral of the citizens there present
lhe iact can be attested by any
desirug to travel o; forward
freigbf, express matter or mail
over tLeoe railways. So far, then, as
either tbe public or this company are
concerned, the need of a resumption
of traffic cannot be irged as a reason
for the appointment of the committee
suggested. The action of such a com
mittee would necessarily relate entire
ly to tbe methods by which the ex
employes might be restored to the
places tbey have voluctirily aban
doned. Aftt-r theseriouiict 'rruptio'i
which the business of St. Lou:s has
already suffered, and at a time w hen,
through the protection of the civil au
thoiitiet) and through exraoidinaryx
ei tions in procuring euituble Ubor, this
company has reopened its lines and
fully estib iBhtd ns trstli , it is to me
a matter of sinr e e regret that any por
tion of Hi ci!)! ir8 s'jould fetd broad
cast over the land, to the detriment of
the city, a sia'ement in regard to ths
obstruction of traffic over two of its
principal reads, which I am satisfied
tbe great body of the business men of
this city would decline to indorse,
Whatever may have been the difficul
ties for solution last month in relation
to the resumption of traffic, they do not
exist to-day. Tbe railroad companies
as one party are expending their time,
energies and money to keep open the
the avenues of commerc for the pub
lic benefit, are succeeding in so doing,
and are solvent citizen?, amenable as
eui'h through tbe courts to tbe .State
and to individuals. Another party
to be affected by tLe proposed con
ference is avowedly expending its
time, energy and money for
the purpose o! blockading tbe
awnues ot commerce, and is
not a legally constituted solvent
citizen and cannot be reached. In
c inclusion, I dseire to call yonr atten
tion to the reply of the president of
this company to the communication
of Mr. Powderly, published since the
date of yonr meeting, which fully
sets forth' the position of this com
pany and which no words of mine
oouid render more explicit. Very re

meeting at Bo rd of Trade Hall to

business meeting, but no prominent
business men were prtsent. Mr.
Barry stated that the present strike
had fettled into a contest be

Jay Gou'd," aod they proposed to
put forth every energy within the or
der's power to bring the magnate to
terms, even to the interruption t f the
commerce of the eonntry, if necessary.
If the strike in the S'uith west did not
suffice, ftrikts wonld be organized
