MEMPniS DAILY APPEAL SATURDAY, MAY 22. 188G.
bATL'UDIT, I lY 22, 18B.
o! Memphis, we are authorixsd to
eta'e, Lave not struck, and do not in
tend to strike because theyhtveno
occasion to. Tney are getting the
samepav tin y lava every day the
past three years, and they are satisfied
with it. Wht-n recently tliey cut
down the hours of lubjr to nine f jr
ea:h working day, they also agreed to
continue at the same rate of wages,
50 cents per hour, so that now they
make only 4 50 per day, whereas
under the ten hour system they made
$5. They siy that the meolionof
their trade in tho it-port in yesterday's
Api-kal was without the'r knowledge
or consent; that they wiU not strike,
are on the best terms with their em
ployers, and intend to remain
ABOUT COAL JA.
We publish In another columns
communication In regard to the report
of the Council's Oas Committee that
is worthy of atlo'ilion. As to the
question of which that report treats a
great deal may be said pro anil con,
Tho fuet that the city can, by the con.
tract offered by tho gas coniurtny
pave the cost of lighting the street,
even though the present number of
lamps were doubled, is a great tempta
tion to the iimtunt conclusion 01
.irai.i uith that company. n tho
o'licr hand, could it not be said in truth
that such a giving could only be so
cured by taxing gas consumers gener
ally, and would not that bo simply a
shift'ng of tho tix, accumulating; it
on the shoulders of the few
and relieving the many? ltemdos
which, there is the objection that
always lies against a government
whether municipal, State or national -having
anything to do in creating and
sustaining a monopoly or holding any
interest, however small, in a private
corporation. This is against good
milillc nolicv and is opposed to the
genius and pnrposo of our govern,
monk But; added to all these objoc
tions, there is tho fact of tho constant
improvement of tho electric light, Im
provenients which, following each
ntlior so ranidlv. loave no room ti
doubt that before live years roll by it
is likely to take the place of gas as a
better, a safer and a more healthful
light. Competition is the life of trade
and if, in the face of the awful shadow
of the electric light, capitalists are
willing to risk, we had almost said
throw their money away, in putting
down a new gas. plant, the city should
not say them nay. They will do the
good work of furnishing employment
to laborers and mechanics, ana in

SHARP XOT Ml A HP ENOIUII.
In the coureo ot bis examination by
the Slate Senate committee appointed
to inquire in'o the charges of bribery
and corruption in connection with the
nrantlng of the right of way on Broad-
wn to his railroad company, Mr.
Sharp staled that he had ben plan
nint; and plotting to secure
that right of way for thirty
,un and had often been
debated, but is often had made
fr8h effort after success. He Brfal'jr
secured hie right of way by bribery,
built his road and for a time in til
umnh over the indignant property
owners on that great highway ran his
can. to all seeming secure in the
possession of an enormously veluabb
privilege. But in a moment when
least be expected it a cloud-burst
of popu'ar inquiry swept all
his ill-totten gains away and
he end his pals are poorer by 85me
hundreds of thousands than they
were when they began the ne
farious and infamous work of bribing
their way through the New York
Bond of Aldermen. The Legislature
has ordered that tho aff.irs of th
Broadway railroad be wound np, and
Mr. John O'Brien, Chairman of th
Democratio State Committee of Nt
York, has been appointed receiver to
do this work under the pro
visions of the recent act of the Leg
islature ef the Slate piovlding for
winding 'up the affairs of the road.
ITn.ior the terms of the law he
must make an inventory of the
propBity .4ind file it with tho County
Clerk, ito urns" thtn notify the cred
itors tf the company to file their
claims. ' He mutt also advertise that
te wlljapply on a certain day for an
order l the couit to sell the invento
ried propeity. Any cieditor may then
' appear on behalf of his claim and the
court mutt examine it. The sale of
te property la thtn H tike place to
the highest tiuder and the valid claims
a paid cut of the proceeds ot the.
sile, if there be money enough to pay
tbem. Thus the Broadway Railroad
Company is to bo closed out. But
this is not to be the end of the trou
bles ot the men who form it. They
aiein dangtr of indictment and con
viction fcr high crimes and misde-
mfianois, and ot being Bent to keep
company in 8isg ting with ex-Alder-
waa Jaehne, who was sentenced on
TLu sday to nine years and ten
months' imprisonment at hard labor.
The pecp'c of New York are deter
mined to make a clean sweep of Mr.
Shaip aad hl company.
the Southern roads thit have not au
ready adopted the proposed nniiorm
sttndard will make the change. The
Msiissippl and Tennessee railroad
banged to the standard gangs several
- til. uMl,;a
years ago. The linisviiiu, .-ucu.yuic,
New Orleans and Texas railway was
c instructed on the standard gauge,
but the Memphis and Little
Rock, Memphis and Csarkston and
the Lmisville and Nashville roads are
Dreiariog for the change, and after
next Saturday trains will be ins on me
standard gauge. As it requires years
to build a railroad, the public cannot
understand how the gauge of a rail
road 500 or 1000 miles in length ran
be changed In one day. It is as evy
to chanes in a daT 1000 miles as one
mile when labor Is abundant. It took
1000 laborers, at an expense cf fUO
each per day, to change the gaugo of
the Misslsblppl and Tennessee iod
in one day to Grenada, a distance of
109 miles, and 10,000 laborers spplled
for employment. Everything is ar
ranged for the change beforehand,
only one rail is removed, and ten men
can change a mile in one day. The
general reader will not understand
the reasons that induce this change.
But business men, and especially
these connected with railroads, have
long seen that the difference
in the gauges between the railroads of
tho North and South hsve been a
great Impediment to commercial in
tercourss between tlo two sections.
Rapid transit is the demand of the
mm in wnicli we live, anu tuns waa
greatly impeded by the tedious 1113th
ods of changing the trucks of freight
and sleeping cars to meet the differ
ence between tho Northern standard
gauge of four feet eight and one-half
Inches and the Southern gauge of nve
feet. Different gauges required fre
quent changes, not only where tho
wide and narrow gauges met, but in
several I of the Southern Slates
uhr the lines were part standard
sauna and five feet gauge. For in
stance, it was found that tho demands
ot travel warranted the running ot a
a sleeping c.r betwsen Tampa and
Botton. In coming north this car lelt
Tampa mounted on truck?, having a
guge of only three foet. At Gaines
ville the car was put on the hoist and
a pair of five-feet trucks put under it
At Weldon the operation wai gone
through with sgaln, new trucks this
time being the standard gauge of fonr
feet eight and one-balf inches. The
same trouble was encountered in va
rions parts ot the South and in ship
ping freight the same change of trucks
was often repeated. Hj rapid and ex
tentivs has been the trade and travel
between the North and South that it la
. . ... 1 i. i
a wonder mat ins onango wuicu m iu
be made next Saturday has so long
been delayed. The most eagaciona
railroad men of the South have known
that they must adopt the standard
HUits. and have built their cars and
locomotives te suit the standard
wldlh. For the past two weeks the
Southern roads have withdrawn all
the rolling stock they conld possibly
ensre from trsfuc so as to change it to
conf .rm to the standard gauge, rsesriy
every read has already driven the in
side row of splkee, against which one
of the rails will be shoved and spiked
on the outside when the day of change
comes. But little freight will be
transported on the Southern railroads
on next Saturday, but tho passenger
trains will not be disturbed. It seems
like a gigantic undertaking ti change
the gauge of the tallroads of eleven
Southern Hates in one day; dm 11
will be done, and so systematically
that tha travel bi will meet with no in
terruption, and would not, nnieai ms
attention was called to it, know that a
commercial revolution was In progress
one that will be an advantage to mo
North and South.
