The Forll D rr Bhl , published in

Looney of Memphis Is looming up ai
candida'o for (iovernor. Ho Is
been prominent in Tennessee politics
for niaoy years, is now a member ( f
the National Democratic Executive
Committee, and a man of reconiz-wl
ability, a trilliant orator and one of
the best stamper in the Ma'e. If lie
in nominated, no matter who hit Re
publican opponent, the cin;,a;sn
w..u'd be mte in the Lands of Col.
Robert Looney. II is man of con
victions and of brains to give theiu
fore, and it Booms just now that bin
prospects for the nomination, and that
means election, are of the beat." The
information from nearly every
couuty in West Tennessee in
most encoii'iging as to the nomiuatijti
of Col. Looney, and lie certainly hes a
strong personal following in Middle
ami East Tennessee. The general

The Duke o! Wellinut in M.iid a K

heartily nominated miJ indorsed with
entluiBiaiin, is tbe best belt of a ( M il
pnijin. Tbe Democracy of Tenneesie,
in Stut ss convention asseiub'eil, a week

prme Comt JiuIkci, and it has been
hi repted with enthusiaiu and will ha
el-it (I, notwithstsndinK tbe diaboli
cal cuts of an enterprising Nashville
newspaper. Tbe Democracy of Ten-
10 a we has nothing to fr in the
August and Noveiubur elections. It
11 more baruioniona than it has been
r nctt lHTli, when Tilden carried the
Stits by a majoiity of more than !(),
OtiO. This harmony is einplns .ed by
thnfa .tthat Snoiljriaw, who led the
bolt for Wilson lu 18K0, mil
F.dkes and I-n -ton, who sup
ported Fnssell in tbo Guberna
totiril election ot 1HS2, wore noinioalud
for Supremo Court Judges by the
united Democracy of 18.HU. The divi
sions of the past e;lit years have
been reconciled and forgotten, and In
A UMUHt and November the united u.id
hariiio'iioiis Democracy nf TminefRee
will sweep the State by overwhelming
majorities Tbe recent convention
made in nnslake in the men nomi
nated for Supreme Quint Judges.
They will lead a nnitud party to vic
tory. The ticket is composed ol clean
men, of clean method men whose
natural abilities are reinforcad hy the
wis. loin gained by experience, and
young men of great popularity and
ability, and who will bring to tbe
public service energy and a determi
nation to prove themselves eiual to
' their opportunities and public expec
tation. Tbe ticket is a strong one,
tbe strongest that could post-ilily have
been eeleeted comp-sed ol repre
eectative Democrats men of char
a:ter. reipectod and esteemed
in their localities as well us in the
State at large. The sentiineut of the
Democracy in every part of the SUto
is that past discords aie forever buried,
and that in August next every Dumo
crat will go to the palls presenting a
united fiont, and that there will be a
sweeping victory. TUs victory will
stimulate the party for the conte. t in
November. The State conveution
culled for the lllh of August to nouii
nnto a candidate for Governor will en
counter no ombm rassnient in the se
lection of a candid ate,(nr the aspirants
are typical aud well known Dcmccratff,

will be short, confined to tbe indorse'

the Chicago platfoi in and tbo few Ib
eues thhl will conic before the next
State Legisla'nre. The cutlook for the
TeuucHsee Democracy at prcBont is
therefore nuut encouraging. The re
cent convention nominated an excel
lent ticket throughout. The Guberna'
tori.il ciii" ntion will doubtlets do
likewise, and with niod candidates (cr

THE 1'lltlOIIK AL' KEVOLI'
The coloiod pople are great at
menace, but poor in peit'ormance,
They have been bolting the Republi
can rr!y for the latt fifteen yers, but
ou the day of tbe elrctiou the vots
eboviH that they are iiidisoluldy
mei'.ilcd to their idol. For yeats
Federal rirg ol Memphis oversaw tbe
m proems nltsolutely ss they were
lOEtroiied by the ovcrwerg on the
fiiive pinntatior. helore the war.
Thfsn Federal olticehoUlers appliel
the party lash aud tl.'ged into the
p.rty trice every colored lunil who
(Ured fit thiok for himself. Tlr.e
yea:s njro tbe colored people of Shelby
revolted ngsirst the Federal ring, and
m tip fcr themselves by nominating
independent ,io!ord . nndidates for
!ho Legii'ature. Ths Democrats ac
cepted two ot their candidates and
p'uci'd tl em on tbe Democratic ticket
tor tbe I.eg-'slattire. When the vote
was count id it was discovered that the
Democrats had cast tiOOO or 7000 vctcs
for the colored candidates, wbilo only
200 or :100 votes hud been cast for
tl.em by tb negroes. Tbe cotorec
i e .i.'j of Shelby county have in
augtirated i ne of tin ir periodical n
vrlts. and a tain propose to cut 0O0
ftotn tht eld Federal ring, who etil!
act s oveisoers over the i egroes. ' But
tbe movement will probably share the
fate of similar experiments. 1 he last

Thomas Tnrner, L. Murray Brown and

intimates that there wi'l b? a bolt on

as eminently hi to vote out p re-em -

lowinz article in tbe last New York
Frermin, edited by Fortune, tbe ablest
colored uin of the North, reinforces
the rosition taken by the Memphis
HotcAman; "A colored man made sp
plication lsst week for a position on

a tne grand scale as at the Pres dsnt's
wadding with ttio ex. eption that there
were mure tropical fruits and ferns and
leie llowors. The walls of tbe Ejh.
room were bidiKn by i lnot s
and garlands of emilnx, and
evergreens were fo6toon"d from
tbo chandel ers and c unices. Tue
xnntels were banked with rate exotics
and the window recesies tilled with
palms. Tt e decorations ol the o lior
parlorj were of a similar description,
The scene when the reception was at
its height, wito the n ib toilets of the
ladies, the splendor of the costumes
worn ny some of the diplomats, and
the brilliant uniforms cf the officers
was moat brilliant.
The guests began to arrive shoit'y
before 9 o'clock, and toon the house
was crowded with ladies and gentle
men awaiting the comirg of the re
reiving party. The signal that the
Pie-ideut and Mrs. Cleveland were
rsady was given promptly on time
and the Marine Band, which was sta
tioned in ths main vestibule, struck
up i he air, "Hail to the Chief." 1 he

to the Blue pallor ia tbe
following order: The Preeident nnd
Mrs. Cleveland, Secretary and Mrs.

then Mis. Cleveland and Mrs. Kodi
cott, Mrs. Wnitney and Mrs. Vila, in
the order named. Mrs. Cleveland was
uttirsd in her wedding dress, an
iv ry s. tin. The waist, however,
was slightly changed. being
pointed back and front, and without
BleevcH. She woie white tilk gauntlet
mitts. Her only ornnmen'ji eie the
di tuoinl necklace, the wedding gift
of the President, aud a msgoitic nt
bouquet of white roses worn at the
coisage. Mis. Cleveland's bair was
dressed in Grecian coils, and the
chaiming simplicity of her whole at
tire only served to show to greater id
vantage the dignity cf her carriage
and the graceful poise of her figuiu.
She bad a smile foi everyone and a
word for many, and her winsome
manners captivated all. The Presi
dent aud Mrs. Cleveland were assisted
bv Mr. Endicott, Mrs. Whitney and

The diplomatic corps w ere the first

zilian frigate Ba-on. accompanied tbe
members of the Brazilian legation,
unit were treated with marked
consideration. Judge Porter, First
Assistant Secretary of State, and Chief
Clerk Brown pre sented the gentlemen
and ladies of the corps. A gfneral
reception of all the other invited
gneets then followed, without any
particular order of precedence. Col.
vv ilson of the army made the praten
tntions to ths ries dent, and Lieut.

N&w York, June 15 On June 10lh
a young coup e engaged room No. 25,
on the second floor of the Sturtevant
Houee, snd were registered as Win
field Lee Thompson and wile of Kan
ses Cdy, Mo. He ws twent-fcur
years o'd, and the was about three
yea's his junior. Th's alternoon the
m tel otlice bell w-s rang I om room
No. 25, which the voiiDg couple have
c'osely retained since their atrival.
But when tbo bell boy rafponded and
rapped at toe door ibere ws no re
sponse. Aftsr repeated rgppings,witb
no s unds from wi'hin, the carpenter
wa summoned and forced open the
d or. Both Thompson and bis wife
lay s'de by tide cn tbe tt lor.
Mrs. Thomp on bad been shot in tbe
back of the head and was dying when
the attendants entered. Thompson was
conscious for a moment and asked that,
a doctor be tent for. In Thompson's
hand was a revolver. There were
bullet wounds in his head and breast,
but not necessarily fatal. An ambu
lance was sent for, but before it ar
rived the woman wes dead. There
are indications that the pair were on
tteir wedding tour, and the inscrip
tion inside her ring that they had
been married June 2. Tbe bell knob
in the room was bloody, indicating
that the shooting wss done before the
bell was rung.
A mystkbv.
What brought about the tragedy re
mains a mystery. The couple had
been stopping at the Sturtevant House
since last Wednesday, which marked
tbeir return from their wedding tour
that extended through Rhode Island
and Massachusetts. The most affjc
tionate relations seemed to exist be
between the pair. Genevieve,
tbe bride, was rather pretty,
with a dark complexion. Her
parent) live in this city and are well-to-do.
A family qnariel caused the
bride, Mil s Keehler, to leave home
three years ago. She found employ
ment in store. She first saw Toomp
son last November. He cal ed upon
her through the winter and an engage
ment fol'owed. Har friends approved
the match. He is the son of people
well known in Kansas City. Thomp
son has bein in New York for
two years attending the College of
Phys;c'ans and Sumeons. The couple
we e married in this city by the Rev.
Dr. Folder, ol the Church ol the Epiph
any (Baptist), on Jane 2, President
Cleveland s wedding day. Mi;s Keeh
ler's parents sunt present? but did not
atiend. Since the ycurg c;u,ila re
turned fiom their wedding trip they
lai lieen very quiet. To-day
tfcev lunched with a friend of
the" bride, a Mrs. Prat', at
1 :30 p.m. Mrs. Tratt was asked by
both t remain !'ngr than she did,

was addresed : "Dr. E. G. Tbomp'on,

KansasCitv, Mo., June 15 Ot re
ceipt of the tepcrt frjm Nw Yo.-k
Ciiy thRt a Kenss C ty man named
Ttompson bad slot himself and bride
in a hotel in thet city, diligent irquity
was made here for aiiy krowledne of
tuch person. The eearch W;B w thout
avail until late to night, when in
formation came thtt a h tter I ad been
found in the room occupied by tbe
young couple addreved to Dr. C. L.
Thorrpsoo of Weet Four.'i etith s ret,
Kansas C'tv. Then became evident
the painful f ct that the wounded
man is the son nf the Rsv. Dr,
Thomp3cn, ptstir of tbe Second Pea
byterian t hurch, acd one f ths fore
moet divines of ibis city. D.-. Tht nip
ton wss cal'ed to thU pustotate from
Pit'sburg, Pa., about four years ago.
His elder bod, Winfield B , the young
man who, presumably, took another
life acd his own 8) tragically this
afternoon, studied medicine at the
Kansas City Medical College, and
was gradua'ed tvo yes'B ago.
He then entered the Ccl'egof Medi
cine and Surgory in New York city,
since which time he his not returned
here. He had obtained a poeiticn fcr
tbe present summer es surg-on on
board a steamer of 'he S'ooinit(.n line
plying between New York and Bos
ton His lather left 1 ere this morn-
ins for New York ci;y, expecting to
sail in a few days for Eur-p;-, waere
he m'enued to Bpeod ssvtrai
montbs of vacation. The theory
thtt natuially stigitist d itself is that
the young man bad been clandestine
ly married, and for some ie?son fear
ing to face the consequences bad de
termined tJ seek an etcape rather
than meet his fathfr. Youn? Thomp
son bad for tome time b en engaged
to be ma-riedto a you:g lai'y who
moves in the best tocieiy cir le3 of
this city, and tbe sad tragedy wi 1
doubtless cause a Beisation when it
become knowu here to-morrow.
Mr. Tbcmpeon is widely known
as an etrnest, elrcjuent nnd practical
praacber. He occupied ttie pulpit of
it e Rev. DaWitt Ta'msge, in Brook
lyn, during the Matter's absence in
Emope Ia tummor. He baa me eon
remaining, wto i) a student fur the
minblry, and two young daughters.
The boo Winfield bore a good leputa--tion
during his residence here.
Mrs. Thrmpson died a few yeats
a?o. Tbe father, it is learned, went
to WaakeBha, Wis., this mcrnirg, ex
pecting to stop a day or two en route
to New Y'ork.
SENATOR KESSA
Hearllly la-donea the Conduct of
President Clevelaad.
Washington special : Senator Ken
na, chairman of tbe Democratic Con
gre sional Campaign Committee,
Bpentingof 1888, Bas: "It is impos
ed) ejt i eay whether Ch-.velandp'ntends
to be a ca jd.da' again. It is na'ural
for a man to look for a second term,
but not a single set of his sjems to be
dune with any regard for tbe future.
None of Mr. Cleveland's movement",
not one, seems to bs the outcome ot
any calcula'ion as to its possible bear
ing on a future election, or ppn any
thing but what be himself believes to
be the best interests of tLe country."
As to the policy rf the Adminis
tration, the Senator encourages the
Democracy to hope. He says: "Cleve
land is bound not only to make the
government Democratic, but also to
improve it; and, mind you, it would
be by no means imnofsible to turn
out a Republican ana replace him by
a Democrat who wou'd be even worse
tban himself. I say that with all the
emphasis of one who thinks be knows.
But in every case what Cleve'and baa
arrived at, and what he baa tc 'om
pliehed, is not only to put Democrats
in tbe plai-e of R publicans, but to
imrrove the service with ' every
charge. He he.s appoir.tsd good perty
men, but his appointees, while beiag
good perty men, are men who bold
the country dearer tban paity. So far
as the personnel of the government is
concerned, before the Ust year i f his
Presi'lent al term is rachd it is
probable that there will be little left
for the met unredeemed spoilsoian to
covet "
