TKl'BSDAY. t t Mil 20, 1886.'
The ladies of Memphis have selected
next 8tordy ths day for ths in
nail decoration of the gravis cl ths
ConUdrte soldiers buried st Elm
wood. It ii hoped that the wilderners
of flowers and the fragrance that nll

nity still cheriahee tot the memory ol
the dead defender of the Sooth.
When Decoiation Day wai first
adopted it was rtguded by msny as a
dangerous experiment in ouriepnblic
Brsatifal aa the idea was, it was feared
that it would c ill forth bitter memo

those who suffered and died in de

no more be robbed of their glory titan

As we showed by a well and care
fully prepared report in yesterday's
ArrsAL, the bluff from Boale street to
Jackson's mound is in a fair way to be
swept away by the river, wh'ch has
recently shiftod iti current and ob
ta'ned complete mastery within tbat
limit. The elevator has had to be torn
down, and the oil mill and iee house
must soon shire the same fate
if something is not done at once. Fur
ther than thil the wild water ought
not be permitted to have its way if it
is possible to prevent. When the
water falls whatever ot the great bank
remains should be graded down and a
revetment with mattrvrwea should be
laid the whole length", away below the
United Slates hospital grounds nod as
far as the Kansas Uity railroad incline,
or else spur dykes should be con
structed such as are in use
for the ,suio purpose near
New Orleans; and this work
should be done by the railroads
and property owners, as they are
to be the bnnrflclarim. The land
tbat will be left went ot Tennessee
street, and within tho limits already
stated, after the river goes down will
have but little value and may be con
demned for a nominal amount with
out much trouble if grading and mat
tress work be resorted to. If steps are
atoneo taken toward ita accomplish
ment the work of saving the bluff by
either of the methods suggested
might be completed before the Hoods
of next spring come, and thus the
whole river front of the city from
Wolf river to President's Island be
saved from any contingency of break
and wash in the future. Will it be

The charge c f Judge Rogers to the
grand jury at Chicago on Monday laU
means the enforcement ot ths law
the indicting, conviction and speedy
execution of ths Anarchists who have
at last undertaken to practice the law
lees methods they have so long
preached. It these men should be
speedily tried, convicted and e x ecu ted,
the result will be most salutary. The
country will watch ths contest in
Chicago with anxiety. A terrible ex
ample should be mads of the out'aws
who corns hers from a foreign land
with no thought higher than to teu h
anarchy, to sat food, drink beer, and
to wear clothes without earn

knaves it to establish tbat in

to them their hard, honest earnings.
The presence of these outlaws it an
insult to honert foreigner! wbo are
punctilious in the o beer va ace of law.
They prostitute tho sacred nams of
labor by using it to protect them in
their diabolism. It is hoped the con
test in Chicago will teach the native
or for ign scoundrels tbst liberty in
this country does not mean dynamite,
acarcby and murder. The Anarchist
who comes to this country with notb
iog in his trunk but dynamite and
bombs should bs welcomed with Tom
Corwio'j "b'ojdy bands to hospitable

filled with horror at the bold

venomous and slimy reptile, and
their punishment should be swif..
In this country rropeity is sicred to
its owner, and no Anarchist will be al

bondr. tbe tbriftle's tnd vicious can

If any man has a doubt as to the
good that results to people in the low
lands from well constructed and ef
fective systems of levees, he has only
to make inquiry concerning tho levee
system of Louisiana, which was begun
soon after Now Orleans was laid out,
in the first years of the eighteenth
century. From the small beginnings
of a levee to p otect the embryo
capital of the territory, levoei have
been extended in Louisiana wherever
protection against overflow was need
ed, and they were neodod in all direc
tions. It at they were always well and
carefully constructed, according to the
plans of skillful engineers, and from
the first were systems. ized upon a
pra-tiral basis. They weie necess-ry
to shut out the water and make agri
culture a certain and not an un
certain pursuit, dependent upon
the caprice . of the elements and
early or late floods; and they
have been continued ever since under
the direction and inspection of a com
petent Board of Engineers and their
utility and necessity have never been
questioned. So it will ultimately be
In Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri,
Kentucky and Tennea'ee. When
revetment snd mattress work'has been
put down wherever needed to prevent
the abrasion and washing away of the
banks of the river, the levees will be
made secure and thoroughly safe
against all overflow and the full force
of the current wi'l be utilized to scour

WOHAM AT THE BAB.
The Supreme Court of New York
recently decided that Miss Kate Stone
man was not entitled to adminaion to
tbe bar of that State on the ground
that the right to practice law was lim
ited lo men by the express words of
the stitute. So soon as this decision
was made known the General Assem
bly, by an overwhelming majority,
passed a bill removing woman's dis
abilities In the courts, the few spe'eh
es tbat were made pending its passage
breathing tho most liberal views as to
woman's equal right with man to
make her living by any profession,
trade or calling that she might adapt
herself to. This is a great gain
on the old-time narrow, contrac'
ed views that expressed in that
and many other legislative bod
ies, limited woman's sphere to
tbe kitchen and the nursery. The
world is moving, but it is dettined to
move faster where woman is con
cerned. Jier right to enter all the pro
fessions. 1 miles and calling open to
men, including the courts and the pul
pit, once established, tier right, to vote

refo'nis in woman's behalf. Thus
truth and righteousness will prevail.

Pm1.4nEi.PHiA. Pa . Mav 17. Dr
Francis Bridge, the Stte Veterinary
Surgeon, to-day paid a visit to "The
Neck, tor the purpose ot examining
some of the cattle ot the alleged
swill-milk district. His investigations
were made with thoNpecial purpose of
ascertaining whether there were any
cases ot tuberculosis.
"This disease, said the c octor to a
reiorter who accompanied him, "is
the most to be dreaded of any of those
to which cattle are subject, and it pre
vails to such an extent In the country
adjoining Philadelphia tint I myself
would not (tare t drink, any ot the
milk sent to the market hero unless 1
knew tho herd from which it came,
and was sure there was n t a cow in it
which had ths disease. Pleuro-pnen-monia
kills the rattle, but it is not dan
gerous to human life.nnd even the meat
of a cow affected with that disease,
when eaten, is not harmful on that
account. But both the milk and the
meat of cattle aflected with tuberco
losis will plant tho germs of the dis
ease in the human system. We hive
a law by which ths owners ot cattle
aflected with pli-uro-pneumonla can
be compelled to kill and bury them,
the State leaving a part at leaBt of the
value of the condemned a imtl. Un
fortunately this law does not apply to
the fther di eise."
"Do you imagine thut many people
in Philadelphia have eied from drink
ing milk from cattle atllic'ed with this
dise Be 7"
"Undoubtedly," promp ly said the
doc or. "Thousands of baliiex who are
brought up on cow's milkthiHet tho
seeds, of consumption into their sys-t-in
and are dying all around ns, as I
believe, who, by a little care and su
pervision, would live to a riie old age,
and the adults who yearly die of con
sumption of the luns probably owo
the crigin of their disease in inany,
manv cases to this source."
"Do yon know of milk being sent
to the city from herds containing cat
tle suffering from this disease'."'
"I regret to say that 1 do. An
alarming proportion of tbe bonis I
have reccnt'y examined contain cses
ot tuberculosis, and I know ot one
herd in which there are ton cows sick
v.ilh the disease from which the mdk
supply of one of the lnrge hotels of
the city is obtained. When vou con
sider ths fact tbat the milk of one cow
is snflicient to spread the germs - the
bacteria, as tho doctors ca !tieru of
the disease through the entire supply
ot a ncru, you can imagine wim'- ri
of a milk supply that hotel is setting.
Of course 1 have not examined any
thing like all the herds about
Ph ladolphiit, but judging fioni
the cases winch 1 have loun.l in a
nuinlurof them, I m satisfied that
the disease is iite common. The
groat dilliculty with it is that in ita
early stages it is verv difficult to do
tect.and in order to fully pro cct tho
milk consumers constant inspection is
necessiry. The germs of the disorse
in tho milk can he readily detected
through a niic oseope. There is no
more hope of trcjitinirn case of tuber

favorable to Mr. Gladstone's Irisb bill.
Mr. Cbsmberlain sajs tbat probably
very few of tbe men who took part in
the Council piocedirgs have ever
read the Premier's bill, and that prob
ably hsrdly one of the gentlemen
would have g.ven the measure a mo
ment's cors deration if they had been
proposed by any person le s eminent
man Mr. Gladstone.
MB. JOHN BRIGHT,
speaking at a mission bazar to-night,
said that the Sunday-schools contri
bute much toward tbe development ot
the moral feelings and that the woik
performed by tbem was of more im
portance at the present moment tban
it bad been at any previous period in
Erg'ish bi-tory. . Ths powers of mon
arcbs were lessening and tbe influence
of the aristocracy was fading' away.
Toe only power tbat wai giow
ing a power that would never
henceforth be limited was ths power
oi the people. He claimed, therefore.
that the most pressing need at the
present time wis po'.it cal education,
by which there could be cultivated ia
the minds of the people a sense of
their moral responsibility. Tbey
should be taught tbat labor would
have iti just reward, and tbat the
wealthy should be permitted to enjoy
their riches in security.
