THE MEMPHIS AFFEAI
MEMPHIS, TENN., SUNDAY, MAY 30, 18S0.
VOL. XL VI NO.' 12i.
THE BEALUlTION Of A DBEiK,
The life of city is the aggregate
life of ita people. There ii stamped
upon it ts ineffaceibly a the peace that
passes all undeis'.andirjf upon a good
men's fa their mistake, their im
patience and eagerness t an
ticipate the waiting yea s, as
well hs the disipp iatmenta that
corrade and eat into hearts loaded
down with care and anxieties. In
1880 when Dr. Porter Jnaujuarated
the great work of municipal reform
that bat since been so succaesf ally car
ried forward by Mr. Had den, Memphis
was everywhere marked by the anti
cipations and disappointments of pre
vious generations, ho, quickened by
the spectacle of the greatest of all
rivers pushing with resistless lids to
the consummation of itad s'ioy, de
sired torealizaaiwiththe magic power
of A'addin the dream that had been
revealed to them by the founders of
Mempbu, that some cay it was to n
val its namesake on the dreamy Kile.
They built, ts they believed,
for their own profit, but they
piesid away into the land
the ancient Egyptians dreamed of as
the dwelling place of immortal fouls,
befcra they could realize their expec
tations. Time brought to many of
them bitter and heart-breaking disap
pointments and the curse of unlooked
for public catastrophes, weighted with
the maledictions of disease and d ;atb,
pushed them, thousands of them, into
untimely graves. It needs no gre-.t
effort of the imiRinatbn to conjnte
up the host that since 1S50 has
marched with steady step and un
broken column ioto the hereafter,
leaving us who remain the heirs of
their hopes and fears. Many of
us who remain bad pat
our hands to the plow with
then and fad seen them sink ere the
iurrow had been fiirly begun. But
they went to ret from th'ir laborp,
leaving us the example of a nob' ",
6elf-pcss9saed cournga that, dominat
ing all miefortuie, urged them forward
with tha work of making a city, the
fullness of whose fruition was another
ever-pesant stimulus. Neither ex
ample nor stimulus were lest upon ue.
It is alrealy an old story, the steadi
nees with which reform onre inaugu
rated was pursued, and we a.l now see
that as our own confidoone in the fu
ture of the city revived and was
strengthened by our works our fellow-citizens
in every pa't of the Ur.ion
wero slowly but saraly won to luvs
confidence iu us. They saw tbat with
confidence in the future and reliance
in our own energies we Lai taken
steps, each one dependant upon it)
preceding fellow, by which we built
an impenetrable wall between our
selves and epidemic disease,
made endaring highways for our
city commerce, and agreed with
onr creditors establishing our
credit above par, several points
higher than it had ever stood
before. But before this had all been
accomplished, and while we were still
in the agonies of long-deferred hope,
there came into the life of the city,
full-handed, a silent, modest man,
backed by a great enterprise, by a
railroad tbat was to link us with the
great Northwest, and tike us from the
beaten track of totton. Gen. Nettle
ton came to Memphis as a messenger
full of cheer and encouragement and
breaking the spell of cotton, released
our energies from thraldom to one
idea. The Kansas City, Springfield
and Memphis railroad came to tbe
city at a time when its encouragement
was most needed, and emphasised tbe
reform in municipal management by
a greater reform In Ira Je. It was a
blessing in itself to be followed by an
activity in railroad contraction here
and bertabouts greater than our dream
ers ever summoned forth in fheir
brishtestmoments o! fancy. The silent,
modest man comes to us again ; now
when we have reached another
crisis in onr history, and he comas
fult-handed. lie comes to nalze
for us the dream of many ol our pre
decessors, and build a bridge over and
above the swift-running river that
divides a continent, and for fenera
tions defied the ingenuity and the
power of man to spau. He comes to
do this great work, a work that is to
seal the destiny of Memphis as the
future greatest commercial city of the
Mississippi Valley, asking only that
we give him tbe same mta-iure cf
good will as enc .uriped him in the
venture that bound us by lines of
s'esl with the mo-t proreesive city of
the farther West. For this he has
not had to wait. He is alrtaly a'
sured of it. The notable mee ing held
yesterday at the Cotton Exchange,
at which most of our intelli
gent and influential ' merchants
were pres?nr, adopted reso'u
tions making it i lain that Nettleton's
name is a guarantee to them of fair
and honorable dealing, and that bis
promise has all the wuight of a sol
emnly legalized compact. Ho has
always lived no to his pledges and is,
therefore, worthy of the u qui i fled
indois sment whir h he received yes
terday, and which, no douht, will
have immediate weight with Con
gress to push the chsr er, which
is the only thing now stand
ing between the company and the
lieginning of work upon the bridge.
And thus there is realized for tue
people of Memphis the consummation
of a great enterprise, the necessity of
which was first made plain when, two
generations now gone, the miiita y
road was laid out from Hop field as
the highway for the adventurous
pioneers who founded the State of Ar
kansas, and for the troops that were 1 1
defend them again t the raids of hos
tile Indians. This bridge across
the Mississippi, now beyond dispute
a fixed fact, is to be our
closest bond w th the West. It is to
make for us all the advantages of an
nninterrop ed highay, whose nearest
counterpart is 500 miles north of us.
It is to induce the concentra ion here
of the railroad traffic of steadily de
veloping St te nearly one-fourth of
the Union the possi ilities of whose
future cannot be speculated upon;
and it is to fix for ail ti ue the value
to an unceasing commerce of an is
othermal li e. whose fullest benefits
have only yet been guessed at.

Crowley got bras on balls, and Powell
got sately to first on a fumble by
Andrews. This filled tbe basrs. Rich

called, and a forced run by another
base on balls looked inev. table,
and as the score was than only

have tied the score. But Knoufi
wasn't taking chances of tbat sort.

fate. This superb pi"ce of work cap

filled his old place at short and played
without an error, doing superb work

Atlanta, May 29. To-day's same
between Atlanta and Augusta was the
prettiest and most exciting yet seen on
onr grounds. From the beginning to
the end tbe wildest, enthusiasm pre
vailed and especially was tbis so in
the seventh inning, when Atlanta bad
j net tied the score. In the sixth, with
two men on bases and nobody out, it
seemed certain Atlanta would jump
to toe front for the first time in the
game, but tbe brilliant and phenom
enal fielding of Augusta prevented
only one run, tbat being made by
Wells, the pi cher making a lhre-
bagger. Atlanta played aim t fault
lessly after ths and won the gams by
her neavv hit icg. Thirteen hits were
made off Holacher, while Augusta
only made six. Fully 3000 people
were present and enjoyed tbe fine
playing of both clubs immensely.
J he Atlanta team leave at 7:30 to
morning for Nashville, where they ex
pect to get at least tbrse of the tour.
Tbe score by inning was as follows:

nah defeated Nashville to-day by a
score cf 12 to 7. Smith and llillman
were the local battery, Nolan and Gil
len for the visitors. Thirteen bits
were made off Smith and ten off No
lan. Smith was very wild, giviDg five
men oases on Dans, ins ground was
very muddy, and to this fact is due
tbe large number of errors made on
both sides. Savannah made tix runs
in the first inning, and deteat for the
locals seemed certain, bnt they
plucked up courage, and in the sixth
inning made five rnrs, four of which
were earned. The following is the

In Friday's game with Macon Hart
only allowed four hits, two to Decker,
one to Miller, one to Geiss. Tbe
heavy hitters, steams, Corcoran and
Pel z, were goose-egged. Chatta
nooga played with bnt one error to
Macon s three. That's good ball
playing, and proves that the Cba ta
nooga club is not to be despised.
The Cbarleiton Nem and Courier of
Friday says: Tbat was a sharp trick
of Andrews in tbe game yesterday.
He had two strikes and despaired of
hitting Gardner's delivery. A wild
pitch came alone. Andrews saw tbat

after bis arrivsl It was whispered
among the delegates that be bad a

Knights of Labor. He said: "The
Knights of Labor now bave, as yen
know, a General Assembly and some
State assemblies, notably in Iowa,
Illinois, Michigan and Massachusetts,
as well as district mid local a's m
