tbcroiaa goid inquiry for all the

part explained by the low a'a'e of tba

we remember that 85 per cent of the

the depieiU are $372,000,000 ajaicst

market is reported by the ChronuU to
have been easier and lower during the

And thia, it will be remembered, was
is (pile ot etrlkee and lock-outs and
tba delay in moving freights conse

FROM TIIE PEOPLE.
Tbe Criminal C'uarl Jadaeaklp and
To tha EdiWrt of tbe Appeal :
Your editorial in Ninday s naior
appealing to tho citxens of Slieiby
Countr to select the best men f r
Attorney General and Criminal Court
Judge, deserves and doubtless re
ceives the approval and thanks of
every lover ol his country. It has
about it the true ring of sincerity and
truth, and you wilinotdoa g ea'er
benefaction to our people tnin to pub
lish repeated articles of this sott to
tone up the public sentiment to tho
importance of this queBt on of select
ing proper men to fill theso poets, and
to impress upon the people
the deep responsibility of select
ing these oUit ere. At this time the
city of Memphis is attrac i"g unusual
attention as a centerof trade and com
mt rce. and it will bo to us a tlingrace-
ful reflection to have the Criminal
Court of the city pointed at and
sneered at for the loose and nhnineful
aduiinintrntion of law, to sny nothing
of the injustice to our people to have
such impositions inflicted upon them.
What nnis our neighb rg think of us
when the laws affecting life, liberty
and decency aro represented in the
court rooms by men whoso personal
life is d. ily a sham for virtue
and morality. And how can the law
be adminibtered by one whose inex
perif nee and want of ability forbid
any assu ance of success1 Some peo
ple are careless and indifferent to an
extent that is marvelous about these
things. They seem to be willlng.either
from personal favor or to pay off some
political score, to dump off Into the
Criminal Court almost any kind of a
man. They lend their aid or influence
without a moment's inquiry or care as
to results. The old Democratic rule,
"Is he honest? Is he capable?" is for
gotten by many Democra's, and the
only qu stion seems to b) as
to whether the oflio shall
be g'.ven for political services ren
dered, or to show a personal favor. If
this is the rule pursued by the Demo
cratic party, wq may expect defeat
for our ticket. Nothing will or ought
to save it
Preen thtse and such sentiments on
our 1fAp'e, Mr. Editor, in time to in
fliretKe a better Hentiment before our
nominating convention meets.
