Interest in the coming spring meet
ing of the Jockey Club, which lie iritis
in about ten day, continues to in

almost any gathering about the clubs,
at the hotels or on the street corners.
Turfmen are arriving alracst daily,
and the hotels expect a big rush, all
the railrcads leading into the citv hav
ing made reduced rates. The Nash
ville (Mton ot yesterday sys: a mum
reporter last night met Mr. John J.
Carter, who haa been home for three
days, and tucceeded in getting quite a
fund of information from him. lie
states that noce of the New Orleans
horses will likely be here, as the meet
ing at that point commences Saturday
next, and ltMte a week. Memphis will
probably furnish no horses either, as
the meeting there begins in the mid
dle of the fiaehvilie meeting. Ihe
reason for this conflict is that Lent
comes so late tikis year, and
the New Orleans people being
great observers of it, the New Or
leans meeting was fixed so that the
first day only fulls in that season.
Neither Nashville nor Memphis could
afford to wait for the close of the
Sauthern meeting, as the horses have
important engagements in Kontucky
and North. Nashville, however, is
doing remarkably well. Fine string
of horses are already here and several
are on the road. Among thoto now
here may be mentioned the following:
Ed. Wily ha Artihan, Lakewoou,

The St. Louis Republican says: A
bombshell was thrown into the local
circle of speculators yesterday when it
was announced that Green Morris had
decided to give Louisville the go-by
and to ship direct from Memphis to
Washington. This dumps all of the
bar'l of Con Cregan money foolishly
inverted on him from St. Louis for the
Kentucky Derby, and there was a
good deal of blasphemy on the sub
ject ronnd Dick Roche's. The news
cannot yet have reached the East, for
in a telegram received yesterday after
noon by the Republican from the Good
win Bros, of New York they mention
him first of all and quote him at
eights. The main changes in the
speculation on the race are as
follows: A lump of money from the
right quarter has at last gone on to
Blua Wing and Ed. Corrigan's big
colt J. B. Ferguson, has been backed
from home at $C000 to $100 with the
taker anxious to go on. The colt is

high, is both very good looking and
Sowerful, and being by Ten Broerk
leander, is wU enongh bred for any

A WHUeis t'outract
The street-car driveis wars deter
mined to have a little fun at the ex
pense of the Memphis City Railway
Comnanv. and actually made a feeble
attempt yesterday to imitate their first
movement here. The demand made
by them on the cotnpaiy was given in
the Apikal Tuesday morning, fol
lowed bv the statement Thursday
morning that the company had agreed
to pay the came as the ne company,
13 cents an hour with half an hour
for dinner, the drivers accepting this
and not insisting upon their demand
of 10 cents an hour. Everything went
along smoothly Wednesday, but yes.
terdav morning a demand for a writ
ten contract aud the 16 cents an hour
was renewed. The company declined
to pay 10 coats, and no cars
went out. Stable hands made a trip
or two, and at the corner of Main and
Beale a red car, filled with ladies and
driven by a hi stler, was stopped by a
crowd, one of the men turning on tue
brake in the raar, while two ethers re
versed the mules and lorced the man
to drive back teward the stable. Chief
Davis and Sergt. Kunholz arrested the
trio and threatened tue remainder
with so much succe?s that the car was
enabled to proceed on its way and
there wai no mora trouble. The
strikers who wr ra arrested gave their
names as 11. T. Jordan, Mke Itohr
and Ed ltose, and were charged wit 11
malicious trearais and attempting to
incite not. Shortly after they were
arrested the drivers agreed (o go to
work if the company would
sign a written contract to do that
upon which they had vetbally
agreed the day before, 13 cents an
hour and half an hour for dinner, and
the cars were started out once more.
The captured trio were released and
went to work again.
The Knights of Labor are under
stood to have had nothing to do with
the afiVr, and the movement was en
tirely without public sympathy.

STORY T0II BY THE
Nearly Tea Thousand Poll In
City-The HMVrence In
The recent report of tax astivnuoni,
to which little attention wa paid
when it was submitted, contains a
good many items of interest not only
to tax-payers and to those interested
in tho growth of the city, but t
those who are figuring on the result of
the election to take p'aee in August.
The following summary will be of
use to the public generally:
Total Ci y

Add one oiuMh for those over ioll-tux age,
but who are still younr enouith to votn and
totul votilK population It thown to be l.H.Wll.
The F'nut will still remain tlie bloody
first, as it has the greatest number of
noils, lending the Fifth by 07 and tho
Tenth by 89. The voting eapacity of
the wards and district runs as fol
lows: First, Tenth, Fifth, F.iirhth,
Fourteenth District, Seventh Ward,
Third Ward, Second Ward, Ninth
Ward, Thirteenth District, Fourth
Ward, Second District and so oil down
the list, tlie smallest in city or county
being tlie Sixth Ward with 1:10 polls.
So much for population and poli
ticians. When it comes to nrotierty
owners, tlie Fourteenth D'strict leads
with 1778, followed by the Tenth
Ward with 900 and the Kiglith Wartl
The city, according to this state
ment, hiiR 710 less property owners
than the country, 7:10 more privileges
ami 17.'!5 more taxable polls.
No better proof of the increase of
the population of our city can lie
given. Allowing fot mistakes, and
without going into theories, it, is easy
to believe that a city which has nearly
10,000 taxable polls has more popula
tion than any late vensas has given
the city of Memphis and suburbs to

beginning at 7:30 o'clock. During this

the altar, bearing fifteen tapers dis
posed in the form of a triangle, and
representing the light of Christ and of
the prophets who announced his com

are extinguished until only tlie top

Christ, is taken down and carried be

after which it is put back in its place,
to signify the temporary extinction of

procession to a side nltar (called tho
sepulclier), richly decorated, where it
remains and is visited by tlie adoring
faithful during the entire day.
On (iooil Friday the altar is denuded
to signify the desolation of the church,

to the story of Christ's sufferings,

On Saturday tho services begin by
the blessing of the paschal candle, an
emblem of Christ arisen, followed by

of tlie Old Testament pointing to
Christ's resurrection, then the bene

which the clergy return in procession,
singing the litany of tho saints.

RocmtMTKR, Minn., April 18 A few
days ago John Leopold ha. I a friendly
sit down at his residence In this city,
with his friend, Gco-ga Weils, a chum
from on1; in the country. They washed
their necks on the ionidu with tl.iid
from the interior tf a black bott e,
aod became more t'lte confidential in
thi ir relations ; so much so that Leo
pold S'i'd his w le to his friend Wells
for tho pttHry oMii'U-r.ttion of $100.
Wells paid jvi-r t if mt.nev and then

Chattanoooa Timet: Tlie demand
for equal and honest assessment of
property for taxation is heard every
where. Ciiattanimmia Timn: Tho I ml a lice
of power at the po'ls is not held by
intelligence and patriotism. Those
are divided, while ignorance is dkely
to go solidly af er a demagogic caterer
Nasiivii.i.c liaanrr: ARiilo from its
thrasonical ami specious features, Mr.
(iould's letter embodies an earliest
protest against a tremendous evil, and
a protest which will strike a popular
chord in this country.
Nasiivii.i.ic snrr.'fttii : There is not
much practical good to be derived
from the autograph of an ex-l'resi-ileiit.
It is only the man who is in
whose chirographv is invested witti It
living interest to the hungry patriot.
Ciiattanimmia Tihhi: Hun it down
to the root, and you find that labor
makes all that is made, and the man
who gets rich without rendering an
equivalent in some form, is a plun
derer of the masses, a robber of labor.
Nasiiviu.k Amrricun: The failure
of settlement is due to Mr Could's
duplicity in dealing with the repre
sentatives of the Knights of Labor,
ami the motive for his extraor inary
action is telieved to have been a
h'luircille Tribniu: We don't believe
in a citizen being shot down in cold
blood, without warning for every trif
ling nO'cnsc or insult lie may have
given somebody. The day f r that
kind of a thing has pretty generally
jiossed in this country.
N'ahiiviii.e fin'wi: Nearly liulf the
profit on the business of the country
is stolen from women. If they got
fair wages the profit would not lie so
large to capital, and it would go into
hungry mouths and make comfort
able homes and happier hearts.
Nashville Vnitm: How we love
these queens of our hearts our own
dainty, shapely, graceful, handsome,
tender, caressing wives and sweet
hearts, whose loving, soulful eyes melt
holes into our hearts into which ' heir
beauteous owners creep and nestle for
love and protection.
Nashville fminrr on (iould: There
must lie something radically wrong
with our society, our laws, our sility,

thirty vears of active life, accumulate
1000 fortunes, wield iinuieasiirabli
power with his colossal wealth, and

organized an association to promote
manufacturing in that city, which has
already made rapid strides in that di

will employ a secretary, w ho w ill de
