Thx Judicial ConrentloD, which
net yesterday a Kuhtill, made up
very strong ticket, notwithiUndlng
they selected Judge Turner,
who is a member of the
present court. Bnodgraai of Chat
tanooga, the nominee from East
Tennessee, is an excellent lawyer,
and aa a member of the Referee Court
in this division of the State gave
practical proof of hia industry
and ability. He defeated Inger
jsoll of ' Knoxville after along con
test. Lnrton ia the nonrnce from
Middle and Folkei from Weit Ten
neeses. The candidates for the State
t large in Caldwell of Gibeon county
and Turney of Davidson. All tbe candi--datessave
Turney are young men and,
aa the biographical sketches e have
already printed of them show, we
lawyers of high standing and in every
way qua'iQed for tbe high and im
portant trust that will doubtless be
confided to them in a few weeks.
Tbi sensational story telegraphed by
our Washington correspondent to-day
bpa-s upon fcs race the stamp of an in
famous falsehood. Ranney's indoiss
ment of it proves that his (election as
a member of the committee to investi
gate tbe Pan-Electric scandal was a
grave mistake. Be is a bitter partisan,
and governed by hia prejudices and
his implacable hate of Southern Demo
crats especially, he could not be a fair
and impartial judge. His minority
report may prove effective with Re
publicans of hia stripe, but with fair
and candid men of both parties it. will
have no weight
Mi;s Anna L. Dawes, in Lend a
Hand, gives a description of the
United States prison at Fort Smith
that is sickening to a degree, and she
concludes that it is all the more dis
graceful that it is known to the Fed
eral authorities in Arkansas. It is
very disheartening in view of tbe per
sistent labors of prison reformers to
read a report like this which we pub
lish on another page, and it ptoves
the truth of a remark frequently made
in connection with prisons and prison
keepers that the tendency to lapse
into a brutal and barbaric indiffer
ence 88 to the coir. fort and care of
prisoners ia something that mo3t men
thus intrusted have reaon to pray to
be delivered from, as all men and
women have from temptation. But
now that the attention of the authori
ties at Washington bes been called to
this black hole, rivaling in its horroia
that of Calcutta, is it too much to
hope that Attorney-General Garland
will crder the construction of a new
prison on humanitarian plans and so
remove the d if grace of to grots and
offensive a brntalism from our doors?
We hope not.
Notwithstanding Mr. Blaine claims
to be a Knight of Labor, he cannot
get the vote of that organization for
President. A correspondent of the
New York Herald, who knows what
he is saying to be true, says the
Knights have no faith in Blaine, and
will make every effort to defeat bim
for the Presidency should he be nomi
Bated. The Knigh's of Labor claim
to have an au'ograph letter in a safe
deposit vault which is in Blaine's own
handwriting. Th s letter, they claim,
will prevent Blaine's election so long
as the woikiogmen remain united. It
is said to be a letter from Mr. Blaine
to his workingmen during one of the
labor conflicts, in which he defined
his views on the labor question, end
in rega d to tbe right? of his own men
particularly. The Knights claim that
Mr. Blairso'a letter is so unjust, so
narrow, so dicta'o'ial that, rerroduced
and circulated as a campaign docu
ment, it would destroy his chancesfor
election on any ticket. This letter,
they say, they will print and circulate
broadcast if he becomes a candidate
Ex-Senator Henby G. Davis of
West Virginia, who is mentioned as
likely to succeed Secretary ManDing,
has been at the head of a great
business enterprise for many year?,
and has amaesed a fortune of $7,000,
000 or f S.OCO.OOO. He has been presi
dent of a national bank for fifteen
ye j re, and in his p'ivate affairs bas
shown himself to be a shrewd, bread
minded, far-seeing, yet conservative
man. When he was in the Senate he
won the confidence and respect of his
fellow Senators of both political creeds.
He bas for bis intimate personal friends
such men as Allen G. Thurman, Ste
venson of Kentucky, Harrison of In
diana, Bayard, Voarhecs, Cameron
and others of equal standing. He
made no pretensions to beiog an orator
or debater, but when be spoke be bad
something to say, which be expresr-ed
clearly acd pointedly. He took great
interest in national financial affaire
and in questions affecting tbe business
interests of the country. He was con
sulted frequently by his brother Sena
tors on bnsinees maters, public and
private. His figures and facts attracted
-attention acd were found to be cor
rectly slated. He won a great deal of
fame and much Republican criticism
by his attack, in 1876, upon tbe sys
tem of book-keeping in the Treasury
Department, and no doubt will, if ap
pointed by Preaident Cleveland, en

were crowded ail night long, and
wbenthesun rose this morning the
rotuoda of the Maxwell was packed
wi h the latest arrivals and tbe ever
aea'ous cand dates and their lieuten
ants. By 11 o'clock the ha'l of tbe
House of Representatives was packei
to i' a utmost caput ity.and so numerous
were the visitors tbat a rongb scramble
for seats was started, and in a
few minutes fu ly 300 men were sUrd-

gates, who were unable to get seats,
but had to be present. County de'e
gations we:e occupyirg the various
commiitee-rooni, prrpaiing to formu
late a tion in the deliberations toon to

having a stormy time. The unit nils
was the bone of contention, and a
great struggle was in progress. It was
finally decided that the unit ru.'e
should be disiarded and every man
be allowed to Vute through th-ir chair

A STARTLING DENOl'EMSNT
was in store. It was thought that
Snodgrass could not possibly prevent
a caucus, but be bad employed the
tours of tbe night so well in making
combinations tbat, with Hamilton
county to back him in tbe refusal to
caucus, he was able to prevent a can
i us, and tbe meeting adjourned with
out dcing anything. Snodgiass stock
immediately went up. He had de
fied, and successfully, the coalition.
At precisely noon the convention was
called to crder by the 11m, J. A.
Trousdale, chairman of the State Ex

were 1333 delegates in attendance.
There were majority and minority
reports on the basis of representation.
Both provided that the basis of repre

The majority report favored the

The names of Judge Freeman, Judge
Gardenhire and Judge Fr'zzell were
withdrawn durngtbe ballot, their d
fea', being certain.
Jndees Young. Haynes and Rose of
East Tennessee had held a caucus at
no in and withdrew in favor of Kirk
patrick, so that there were seventeen
candidates ba'loted upon.
From thn first it was evident that
CaMwell, Folkes and Tumey would
be elected, but the raoe between
Cooper and Lurton wae very
close, and as each connty cast its vote
it was lustily cheered. After the
whole of tbe counties had been called
the counties began to change their
votes rapidly, and tbe chairman or
dered the roll to be called again to let
changes be made. Tbe result was not
affected materially, however.
The vote as announced stood:
Folkes 906, Caldwell IKK), Turney 800,
Lutton 735, Coiper 630, Lea 568, In
gersoll 447. Snodgrass 441, Kirkpat
r ek 168, Mayfield 158, Bright 102,
The chair announced that Messrs.
Folkes, Caldwell, Lurton and Torney
had been nominated.
Tbe convention wa now on its feet,
and a scene cf the wildest confusion
ensued. When order wts restored a
motion to adjourn until to-morrow
was made but lost, and a mo'ion to
adjourn to 9:30 o'clock to-night car
Tiod. Right Srwslon.
At ! he night session it only remained
to select a nominee fr im Ea:t Tennes
see. All of the catdi ates withdrew
excep' IngereoU and Siioderass, and
on the ballot lngertoll received 6C4 J,
Mm field 8 and Snodtrrats 720J. Before
the" ballr.t waB announced the coun
ties of Savier, Washington and Ander
son withdrew from tae convention on
the ground tbat Snodgrass was not
really an East Tennessee man. He has
lived in Hamilton county three years,
but previously in Middle Tennessee.
He was elected by Middle and West
Tennessee v. tes.
The action of these three ct unties
did not crte much excitement.
All of the nominatioLS were, on
motion, made unanimous.
Caldwell and Turcey were ap
Eointed nominees from the State at
arge, Folkes from West Tennessee,
Lur ou from Middle Tennessee and
Snodgrass from East Tennessee.
