eiy, President Had Jen end the Tax
jog District attorney, met the follow
ing representatives ot the ges com
panic : N. M. Jonee. Pre-ident: W
rj. Bruce, Kapoleon Hill and Judge
Crafr, for the Memphis Gis LiiiQt
Company, and Messrs. Ka'ienbeiger
and Col. Gantt for the Equitable Gas
Col. Gantt presented the claims
and submitted their proposition, as
PROPOSITION OP NEW COMPANY.
Whkriak. The Equitable Ganlieht
Company of Memphis claims under its
charter the riebt ti tbe use of the
streets, etc., of the Tgzing District for
tbe laymg of its pines and making all
neccs'ary ronnection for the distribu
tion and sale of gas to consumers with
in tbe territory of tbe Taxing PiHttict.
On tbe other hand the taxing Dietuct
government detiits such authority and
claims to be tliesile judgaof tbe ques
tion wtet tier autti use ol the streets
shall be made or not, and if made, of
the terms to be imposed cn said cam-
pany touching the u-e of the streets,
etc. ; and,
Further, This conflict is likely to
result in litigation, wita the hazards
andexpeasts incident to such a con
Ana now, by way of 10111 pro mine
and st ttlemeit of thMdinpu'ed ques
tion, and in consideration theieof, and
tie further confidt ration tbat the
Tax;ng District will puichane one-
third of its supply cf g-sdr lighting
public places, to be furbished by said
company, cl a quality equal to tbat
supplied by any other gas company,
and as cheaply as any other company
wi.l furnish tbe same, the Taxing I) a
tiict gives its permitsion, so far asjt
can lawfully do so, to said Cornwall)'
for tae use of euid streets, etc., f jr the
lying of pipes, making uecess.'ry con
nections, and doing otter necessary
acts for the tale and distribution of
illumintting gas to tbe inhabitants of
the Taxing D.strict and tbe dis'rict it
self, upon the following terms and
condition'', which are to be obligatory
ou bith sides:
1. The said company shall construct
works, with Cflpat ity to supply tbe de
maud of tbe lazing District and its
inhabitants, within this titim herein
af er specified.
2. The pa) supplied shall be superi
or in 1 gluing power to the gas now
supplied the Taxing Distiict end its
inhabitant', and equal y free from im
purities and elements prejudic al to
3. The price to be charged therefor
shall not excted $1 75 par 1000 cubic
feet, if paid within five days of the
maturity of the bill, with privilege, if
no: so aid, of making the price $2
4. This price shall bs charged, and
no more, during tbe entire term that
the charter of the company runs and
until it expires by its own limitation.
5. No sale, c:moination, agreement
or b r.ain shall bs undo by said com
pany with any other company cr per
son which shall have tbe effect to
evade or defeat the faithful perform
ance of the stipulators of this con
tact, as to the price to be charged and
tbe quality of ges to be furnishtd; and
(aid company shall not willfully, in
tentionally, or negligently defeat those
provisions, by tbe non-usa or aban
donment cf its works and franchisee.
And in the event said company shall
do so, in any of tbe ways stated abote,
then it thall be bound and
obliged to pay to the Taxing
Disttict, as liquidated damage;, tbe
sum of $50,000 for the breach of
said provisions, for tbe use of the Tax
ing District and its inhabitants tbe
said sum to be a charge aod lien upon
the works and franchises of said com-
ERiiy, and shall authorize the Taxing
liatrict to seize said works and fran
chises or to have a receiver appointed
to take charge of and hold ttie same
until foil payment of said 150,000 phall
be-made, payment being the orjly way
of obtaining the release and restitu
tion cl p"ssis on to raid ccmpauy of
paid woiks and fianchires.
6. No authority is granted or at
temp ed to he granted by tbiscontratt
which shall enable said company to
do aoy act not authorized by its char
ter or tbe law of the land, or to use
ttie streets so 88 to ba a nuisance, or
to commit any nuisance whatever,
save what maybe unavoidable, in tbe
propir construction, of its works and
the sale of gas of the character and
description naned in this contract.
7. The opening of all streets, alleys.
etc., for laying pipes and making con
nections1, shall be under the direction
of tbe Taxing District Engineer. Tbe
streets, alleys, etc., thall remain open
only so long as is unavoidably neces
sary for such purpose, and they shall,
in all cases, be relaid and repaired in
such manner as to make the same, in
tbe opinion of the City Engineer, in all
r; spec's, as good as before they were
opened by tne company. And in the
event the company should replace and
repair any a reet, or other public place
in such manner tbat, in the opinion of
said engineer, it is not as good as be
fore being disturbed by said company,
then such engineer shall at once em
ploy labor and supply materials, and
have te raoae done properly, and the
erst thereof shall be a debt against
tbe said company, in all respects like
dibts which it voluntarily contracts.
8. Within tbir.y days nt tbe final
execution and delivery of this contract
tbe raid company shall enter upon
making contratts and purchasing sup
plies for the erection of its works.
which it is believed by said company
it can cnmpUta within ten months
from euth date; but unforeseen acci
dents or difficulties may possibly arise
which would postpone complete con
struction for a longer time, and
therefore it engages positively to
complete tbe same in not exceeding
twenty-four months from said date.
Bat if enjoined by rival company,
tbe time of such injunction to be ex
cluded. And aa guaranty for the
beginning and completion of said
works in tbe time named, and as an
earnest of its good faith, in addition
to its stock list of solid stockholders,
which ought to be conclusive of its
good faith, as said company insists, it
agrees to give bond and approved se
curity in tbe sum of $10,0u0, as liqui
dated damages, if it shall fail to begin
and complete its works.
The different sections of tbe propo
sition were generally dicus:ed by the
members of tbe committer and Col.
Gantt, and it resu'ted in the under
standing tbat if the proposition was
accepted the minor details could be
arranged by the city attorney and the
attorney for tbe company.
They declined to light the public
lights fre. T''-v aieo propo-ed to
build tbe wei ks, and if after completion
and demoi st rations of all claimed for
them, tbe Distrid wished to purchase
them, that they Would aril to the Dis
trict and take sixpr ren:. bends for
the p'ant at whatjt cost tt.em. They
also stated that tie worts wouU b'e
constructed inel.fe of the iity liruite,

taxed ss if they tt-re sit lated wi'hin
the city limits. Hiey b!n staled tbat

Judge Craft, onlehalf of the Mem
phis Ga L'ght Company, submitted
the following prof ositicii:
To the Honorable Lsjtislativt Council of the
Taxing District if hhol r Count:
Tbe Memphis 0s Li;lit Company
has heretofore nude ii your honor
able body certain nrcrHsitions in ref
ence to the made and t'rms of its ex
ercise of its charter franchises in this
city. Ho one of these propositions
has been ic'ed upon as yet by your
body, and said company desires here
by to withdraw them all.
lbs Memphis Gsa l ight Company
now makes, all others having been
thus withdrawn, tbe following, as a
new proposition wholly distinct from
We propose to light the city, in all
ite departments free nf chsrge. This
service is to be to the full extent of
the leesoonble seeds of the city, and
may, if is c nsidered ds sirable by the
Council or this company, be specifi
cally dtfiLpd by cetittact. We now
propose this fret service for the pe iod
tf ttn vears with ths privilrge to the
Council, at its own option, to renew
the arrangement for each succeeding
period of ten years cmi g the contin
uance of our crarti:. t-o long as the
agreement for this service shall be
thus kept in force tin company will
not charge the citizens of Ihu Taxing
D strict for vas furnished them a r ricu
exceeding per thousand cubic feet.
W e further propose that whenever.
under the foregoing prvijious, tb s
company sball reali. from its opera
tions a net income of 7 per cent, upon
its capital stock,, nut enough in ad
dition to pay the interest upon it)
bonds, all the surplus shall inure and
halrng to the Taxing District; and
said District may to .tro' and use such
surplus in reducing the income to the
limit aloresaid,byjit wer:ng theprue it
ga to citizeiiB, or, may ether me ap
ply it in tbe discrtt en of the Conned.
1 Ins company Mil submit to and
stipulate by contrect for any reaeon-
aoie reguia nn, ami snare oa tne
part of ths Council in its manage

may seem necessary and proper in

of what is here p'oposed,and in order
to protect tne Interest which may
iuuie to the Tiling District by the
increase of the net income ot the c mi-
pany beyond the limit herein Kprcitled.

pany adds: The propt Bilious fr free

Second llie net prolit or income
means what reumics after payment of
the expenses of operation, repairs

dividend of 7 par cent, is the dividend
upon the premnt capital stock, and
the interest on the bonds is the inter

standing. Third An improvement acci uot
is to be kepi separate from the ex
pense account, which will show all
money ex pen led in extension and en-
largemi nt of the mail s arid pipes and
works, and at the end ol any period
of ten years under the above proposi
tion the Taxing Dis'rict shall have
the privilege of buying and owning
the works ot tue company as tlieu ex
isting by paying therefor the amount
of the bonds aod the face value of
the capital stock, and one-balf of the
annual expenditure for the improve-

pany 7 per cent, in cash on better

tbe Taxing District.
The contract to be made under this
proposition, if accepted, shall go iulo

After considerable discussion on

JUnulitd, Tbat it is the sense of this
meeting tbat tbe freight agents of all
railroads and packet companies of
Memphis confer with the freight
committee of this Exchange and at
once prepare a standard tariff of
weights on all merchandise offered for
shipment, that such tariff shall con
form to the tariff of weights adopted
and recognized in other competing
cities, and that all merchandise not
enumerated in said standard tariff
sball be weighed at the depots of the
respective railroads at tbe railroad
companies' expense", and such weight
iosersed on the dray tickets for the
Tbe best of feeling prevailed
throughout the meeting, and much
gocd :s expected to follow.
Owing to change of gauge we are now
prepared to contract for present or
future delivery of Alabama splint coal
at reduced rates.

Miss Hattie Whit, who bus com
pleted the collegiate course, will alto
remain for another year, with the in
tention of prosecuting her studies
through a normal course. The grad
uates, seated in a semicircle on the
platform, and arrayed as they were in
s otless white, presented a combina
tion of loveliness and grace rarely
equaled even in Memphis, noted us it
is for tbe beauty and charm of its
women and the loveliness and fascica
timof its girls. Every type of beauty
was represented a bean y in every
ca e brightened by the iu fallible
outward signs tbat indicate a tra iled
and cultivated mind. Altogether. it was
a pleasant sight for the eye to linger
ou, and so net only thought tne
world-hardened business men who
were present, and whose hearts were
refreshed by the scene as the wither
ing flower by the morning dew; but
so alto, doubtles, thought the
feather-brained dudes, who were
there iu numhera to do homsge,
douhtles;, to some fair divinity whoto
superiority of intellect made it neces
sary that their attentions sliould be
gin and ee l with bomvge. The exer
cises were highly interoting and
thoroughly enjoyable. The first num
ber on the programme was a recita
tion, ' The Diver," by Miss H. White,
who rendered it in a manner that left
no doubt tbat she has studied elocu
tion with profit. Her manner was
easy and graceful, and her delivery
forcible, yet not overstrained. tShe
was waimly applauded.
Miss Viva Mewborn then sang "Tell
Her I Love Her," in a creditable
"The Clow n' Baby," a recitation
by Mies Belle. Miller, was admirably
rendurud and e'leitud Ike heartiest
Miss Ha Lee Treadwell re
cited "L"Bca," a very pathetic
story, and Misi Treudwell told
it well. Nhe is the happy pos lessor of
a voice whose de p and rich tones sug
gest thrtmse'ves as a superior medium
for tbe tntorprvtation of st ong passion
or the expression o' heroic sentiment;
her nianner,too,is highly drania'ic, her
gesticulation eay, na'nral and grace
ful, and her reading intoil gent. Miis
Treadwell has reason to coi gtntulate
herself, not only on the brilliant suc
cess of her last night's effort, but oa
the possession of gif's as a dramatic
reader of a high order.
Miss Mattie McDavitt, of the clas
of '84, sang love song entitled "An
swer." TbH young lady has a sweet
soprano, which gives evidence of care
ful cultivation, aod her contribution
to tbe evening's entertainment was
among its mo;t delightful episodes.
Miss Betty Holdrn's ieci:ation of
"Shipwrecked" rises far above the
average of school-girl merit It was
simply superb. Nothing finer in the
way of dramatic recitation has been
done here for months, nnd so skill
fully did she paint the scene that
formed the burden of her na-ratlve
thai the audience bung with breath
less in'ercst upon her lips nntil the
last notes cf her rinving voice died
away upon the ear. Miss Bidden has
everyqiialiflcatian neceesary to achieve
the highest honors of thu dramatic
world should she aspire to rea h
them; in voice, manner, phy
sique, action and intellect,
she is most happily endowed,
and seems to know bow to apply her
gifts to good advantage.
Miss Eflie Christian read a very
thoughtfully.written essay on "Una,"
taking tbeposilion thatthe ideal wom
an followed troth aa "Una" in the fairy
tale fallowed Red Cross Knight
Misj Dillon, by special request fa
vored the audience with her in nii ta
ble recitation of "The Spinning
Wheel," and in response to a hearty
encore, gave "Toe Henator's
Dilemma." Miss Dillon is in
structor of elocut'on at the
liigbee school, and ber superior fit
ness for such lines of teaching was
abundantly demonstrated last night.
Her recitations were the gems of the
A vocal dnet by Mrs. Grace Weath
erford and Misi Mona Dowcs,"A Night
in Venice," was exquisitely dons.
Miss May Hill gave acbarming reci
tation of "Eeho and ths Fairies,"
fanciful, poetical conceit requiring lor
correct interpretation wins-mene s
of manner, keen and intelligent in
sight into the finer shades of tbe au
thor's meaning, e'ear, sweet voice, a
merry, mirth-loving disposition, the
gift of musical laughter, and yi
vaci'y as changeful as tbe tip
ples on the surface of a stream.
All these Miss Hill seemed
to have, and so neatly did sue call
them into requisition and so sweetly
interpret the poetic fancy that under
lay the story she was reciting, that the
audience regretted when tbe fascinat
ing ta'e waj told.
The Kev. Mr. He'sums then dis
tributed the diplomas and addreed
the graduates in words fall of sound,
pia:tical advice and eloquent wisdom.
A recep'ion by tbe graduates, as

When Billy O'Brien left Ntshville a
few dttvs ago be requested the direct
ors of bis club, as a special favor, to be
permitted to pitch a game in Mem
phis, promising to make monkeys cf
the Bluff City bojs. Appreciating
Billy's eminent services to the cluo
the request wai granted, with the
piovlso that if the monkey part of tbe
programme didn't pan out aeeoiding
to programme, that Billy's pitching ait
should be eliniimi'ed from lbs o'io.
The nei forma lies came oil' yis'erdity.
B.lly went mto the box smiling to the
b:ick of bis ear, and began to t ss the
ball over the plate. The liret ball
miiseil it by hull a mile, the next one
a quarter, and by the time Billy had
found Ibe plate Sneed, the tiret batter,
took his btfe on balls. The next man
did likewise. Then a man named Me
Sorley stepped up. and when the ball
po near enough whacked it 1 1 center
lield for two bost'S, Sneed ai.d An
In tbe next inning Billy stalled to
pitch tome more, for all the good tat-
era cf tbe Memphis Club had baen
deposed of and there was nobody tl
face him but bis old chum Dick
riiclun and a harmless man from
New Orleans named Miea, who
had juet joined the club, l'helan was
put out on tt jirouuder to tli'irtstop.
The harmless man from New Orleans
then stepped up and Billy, by autre
accident, put the bad somewhere near
the pints aud the stiangergot uuder
it with his bat and sent it with his
compliments sailing over light field
feucs in the direction of Nashville,
where it has doubtless leng since a r
lived. Then Sr.eed ca xe u'ong
and siztd Billy up for a
two-bagger. At this point
Manager Go'dsby rung down the cur
tain for two minutes, and when it roie
again tbe scene bad changed, the min
strel show was over, and the Mikado
performance tegnn and continued tt I
(1 p. m. It was not an enjoyable per
formance, although the F.mperor of
Japan seemed to he having a good
lime, grinning as wide as the safety of
bis cirs would permit him, but
tbe Browns didn't enjoy it a
little bit, for tho wily Jap made
a menagerie of I hem without the
slightest trouble, and laughing
a 1 tbe while. Hhea, tho new pitcher,
made a good impression. His deliv
ety is very speedy, though rather
wild, and bis curves are deceptive. In
a few days, when be gets command of
the ball and a catcher who t an hold
him. be will make the best of them
do the sawing sot. As a batter be is
a treasure., making two hits out of
four limes at tbe bat, one of them
being a home run over right Held
fence, the longst ever made on the
It rounds. As a fielder be is
also excellent, one of his catches yes
terday of a fly, caught ader a long
run, being a splendid exhibition of
fie ding skill. We think Shea will do.
In the second ionlng Black was
substituted for Shea, and pitched a
giiod game until the sixtli inning,
when be lot down, and two runs were
made off bis delivery. Two more
were made by Nasbville.in the eighth
inning, and the day was lost. Baker,
who was suts ituted for O'Brien,
in the second inning pi'.ched just such
a game as only he can pitch, striking
out man after man without the slight
est apparent effort. The Louisville
club made a great mistake when they
let Baker go. We regnrd him as with
out an equal in tho country, McOor
mick, tlarkson, Barnsay and Kilroy
notsxeepted. If bo lives two yeais
longer that fact will in our opinion be
To day the ba'try for Memphis will
be O'Leary aud Bioiighton ; for Nash
ville, probably Dimdon and Hellman
or Smith and Hellman. I u the former
case Memphis will doubtless score
another victory. O'I.eary is in good
form, and muy be rulied upon to pitch
a great game.

To the Rilllura of Hie Apieal:
In J our issue of the IHh instant ap
pears a communication from the
manager of tho Water Valley Blues,
w hich demands some answer from us.
We think it peculiarly unforlunate
that unpleasant .newspaper contro
versies should arise from contests be
tween amateur clubs, and we would
be reluctant to notice the communi
cation were it not for some unjust and
gratuitous imputations upon tbe
members of the Alhlet'cs and the
cit lens of Orenada that the manager
f the lllues has seen lit to inject into
It. Of Mr. Komberger, the umpire,
we shall have but little to sty.
Whether tbe intent in his heart was
honest or dishonest we cannot state,
for that is a thing impossible t) ba
known. The writer has been charit
able enough to believe him to have
bevn honeet; siiflice it to say, however,
that a more grossly ignorant and more
utterly incompetent umpire of a mod
ern game of ball we have never bad
tbe misfortune to sue, and it has been
our pleasure to witness much ball
playing by professionals an amateurs.
The eiror alluded to in the communi
cation, the decision at second lease,
whs hut one of many grievous errors
sgnlnst the Athletics, and, so far from
being "unquestionably right." we
have the authority of Mr. Hengle, the
league umpire, as obtained and stated
by an acquaintance, for the assertion
tbat the decision was erroneous.
The umpire's decision on balls
and strikes was a farce to
behold, and his rulings generally ' (
were greatly to tbe hurt of lbs Ath- ,
If tics. It was to this pretense of am-.
piring (hat the Athletics attribute i
tliAir ilitfi.it. anil whotlntr nr nnt t.liav
are right, they are, as will be shown,
ueiow, qime wining to attempt toy
demonstrate. As for tbe charge that
the lllues bad heard and bad reisou
to believe "that it was a made-up job.
to rule our (their) umpire out and pui,
in a man who wonld beyond doubl
give tbe game to Grenada," we have
but to say for ounelf, as manager, ant
for Mr. K L. Girard, the captain, whi
reqnesls us to do so (the only person
in authority over the club), that
far as any such' knowledge or inter v
tinn to him or mysell is imputed b
the statement In the communlctlio
it is absolutely untrue, and false i
fact, upon whatever belied founded a
information stated. Moreover, an;
one familiar with the rules of bas
ball knows that had Runberger r
tired neither side could have forct
an unacceptable nmpire ' upon tl
Now, in conclusion, we desire to i
peat that tho Athletics attribute th
defeat in the last game to tbe umnl;
and that they believe that with
honest and competent umpire tb
ran defeat the "Blues." In snpp
ol this aesertion we des're ti tr
fiis pr i osition to ths manager of
