MEMPHIS, TENN.. THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 188G.
VOL. XL VI NO. 341.
Th Marqai of Ev ington, ia bi
manifeato published this morning, re
ally nivft up the fight. Be differ,
only with Mr. Gltdttona ai t the
power to be conferred on an Irish
Parliament. lie admita that borne
ru'e should be conferred upon the
Irish people, but he wants it
limited in some way. He does
not exactly know to what extent
We fear that tbe Marqu's, who is a
true man and loyal to his principle,
hiving resitted all the blacdithmenta
of tb Toiies, is too much of a stickler
or hiir spl'tter. He is another care of
a good man gone wrong.
Thk trial of the Converse brothers
before the Louisville Pesbytery ia
dragging its slow length along and
threatens, our special correspondent
tells ne, to outlast the present Fenera
tion. If the question of Prof. Wood
row's theory of evolution in tt be de
bated in connection with the ques
tion of the veracity and honor
of its deiendactn we are
not sure that the tri il will not last be
yond two generations. If evolution is
Ignored and the trial is narrowed to
the points raited by the Rev. Dm.
Boggs and Daniels, tbere is no reason
why it should net be closed in a week.
The right cr wiong of these would de
pend upon comppseDt testimony, and
of that these ger t'enien have en: ugh,
according to thtir showirg, to silence
the Converse brothers and put them
beyond tbe pale cf the church.
Mb. Alfbid Taylor, who wayes
terday nominated lor Governor by the
Republican convention, is the son of a
former member of Congress, and one
of the most eloquent speakers Ten
nessee ever sen' to the Ilo ise of Rep
resentatives. He was a conservative
Union man, and had much influence
in Cjngrera, notwithstanding he was
known to have been a itaunch friend
of Andrew Johrlson. Mr. Alfred
Taylcr has always affiliated with the
Republican;, and on several occasions
has bean en rust d by them with im
portant work, such as that devolving
upon an elector for the 8 ate at latge,
and has generally acquitted him
self with cr.'.dit. But if he
accepts th'snouiira in ho willsiddle
himself wilh a contract beyond Lis
powers, for no ma'ter who the Demo
crats selected to opp se him from these
offering for the Governoi ship maybe
he is certain to be defeated. Indeed,
his defeat is a foreione conclusion.
It is to be hoped the Taxing District
Council will not do anything rash to
day in tbe matter cf the ges cont act.
Memphis is nrt a pp.uper upon the
public hrghway asking for the help of
great corporations to brat ber munici
. pal burdens. 8' e does not atk for
free lights and she especially do.js not
want free gas at the exptnsa of her
own taxpayers. Betides there are
constitutional objections. As to tbe
sometimes mooted objection of tear
ing up the street, that is all nonser se.
That of Main street, for instance,
would be bettered by bsing torn up
and laid again, and that of Second
could not be injured if the re'aying
is done as carefully as tbe Citizens'
Street railroad d'd that work when
putting down its tails. Except at the
junction of Second and Madi'oo,
their work was weil done, and there
the difficulties to be overcome are of
a nature to puzzle tbe best engineer
ing skill. Competition is tbe life of
trade. We u-ge tbe Council not to
make a contract wilh the old gas com
pany. Thk reign cf terror that prevai's ia
East St. Louis is due to the willfully
stupid conduct cf the Vayi,r of that
city, who has for seme reasons tbat
satisfy him?elf suspended all theio
licemen, and lefused to replace
them. If at all es intelligent
as his election ti the p'ace im
plies, be ought to have known,
and doubtless did know, tbat th s sus
pension would, with such a popula
tion as he has to deal with, be the
signal for just su'h cowardly and au
dacious assaults upon women f s well
as men as are reported by telegraph.
No ma'ter wbat his views of
official duty may te, he is
not jut titled in leaving tbe
community committed to his care
without adequate rrotection against
thieves and Besacs'ns. His conduct
proves Mm to be an unwoitby execu
tive and an unsafe leaJtr and guide,
deserving of some'hiog more severe
than cemure. He ehould be held
pereona'ly responsible for every loss
by rcbbeiy, and forall the injuries sus
tained by biu al assaults upon the
(. Th Repub icans yesterday nomi-
nated Alfred Taylor of East Tennes
aee, biotherof "Bob," for Governor.
C It wou'd ba a ra'.her singular thing in
jthe political history of the country if
Bob received the Democratic nomina
tion, and the two brothers were to
be pitied against each oihtr. In such
an event tbere could bs no doubt as
to which side victory would perch on.
Alfred can't play the fiddle, and
no matter how eloquently he
might plead, Bob would snow
bim under with the "Arkan
saw Traveler" or "Polly, Put the
Kett'e On." Besides, Bob wculd have
the whole Democratic party to appeal
to, ;nd Alfred wooM be handicapped
with tUe dead weight of thi Republi
can pa'ty. But nr snch cnniingoncy
is likely to arise. Bob Looney is more
likely t'o be ti e Democratic candidate
than Bob Taylor, and, if he is. Aided
will stand even less chance of suctes,
for he will mert a ready debater wel
posted in State and national politic?!

people and how to address them most

Nashvilus, Tehh., June 16. The
Appeal's prediction this morning that
AIL Tayior would be the nominee of

was fully verified. IS nnn a friends did
not know till this momi re that Tay

handfomrly by II. nk, Littleton,

before the convention assembled the
elite was revealed. Everylhii g was
in readinets fi r action, and eo fust did
Houk manipulate the delega'es that
when Kunncame down from his room
at the Maxwell House this morning
he was a defeated man. He saw the
scheme that had b en worked on him,
but It was too late to recover lost
ground. The convention wa packed

Louikville, Ky., Jane M. Another
day's work in the Converse

it leaves the ca e no nearer
trial than it was a x months
ago, and, to a man on the hack bench,
it looks as if the beginning of te
actual trial is many days off, white
the ending is too far off to be thought
