announces in t-dy's Slate1 (Vatf'tetbai
he Is a candida'e f ir the State Senate

la a true Detnoc at and has always
supported the nominees o( the party.
He baa never been an aspirant for a
political oflice, but bes ever been
found baitlicg for tbe success of hia
party. Oar opinion is that a better
man than Mr. Donaldson cannot be
found in 'hia Senatorial district He
would rt fleet ciedit npon his constitu

Naohville American: We wish fo
call attention to a reeolutlon passed by
tbe Executive Committor, referred to
in a communication in this m rninR'a
American. Tbis reeolution providoi
that the matter cf folecting delegates
to future conventions ahull be left
entirely fo tbe Democratic ward or
District clul:s. Now it may be that
every Democrat should be a member
of the Democrat io clubs in hia ward
or district, bin tbe feet remains that
all Democrats do not join these clubs.
A great many earnest, honrst Demo
crats who do their full daty at tbo
polls do not Jain clnhs. The effict cf
this resolut'on la to disfranchlie
very man at the primaries who is not
a member. If a majority of the Dem
ocrats in any particular ward do not
belong to tbo club), they are powerlesi
against tbe will of the mlnoiity who
do. We think the committee hardly
viewed thla mat er in its true light
when it was before tbem, and it de

thiuka there ahonld be no more joint
canvasses in Ten nensee by candidates
for Gubernatorial honors. We thlok
tbe Avalanche is right about it, and
bono tbe State Democratic Committee
will take the aame view of tbe matter.
Tbe audiences which have been ad
dressed In tbe joint canvasees have
been c nipoted of Democrats almoet
exclusively. This is true in Middle
and West Tontiossee, at leaet, and if a
few colored Vetera happen to be pret
erit, under inctruction from tbeir
white leaders, thnv wonld leave ao
aoon aa the K- publican speaker got
through, or if the Democratic Candi
das spoke first, they would hold the
"colored brigadv" in reserve, and
rush tbem in when the Re
publican candidate betan lvs speech.
It is a fact that the Democrats
have been furnishing the Its
publican speakers with audiences in
the State canvases, and the Demo
cratic candidates have not, In turn,
been permitted to have a fair chance
at the Republican dement. II the
Republican nominee for Governor
wants to canvass the State, let him go
around by himself and talk ti hia
hovt'e content to bis colored brothers
and tbo low white olllce s-eking Re
publicans tcattered here and tuere.
The Rspubllcars will Ray that the
Ddmocra's are afraid to put tholr can
didate against Alf Teylor, but who
cares for that. The Republicans who
maxe thia cry will not believe it, for
they know there are Democrats in
Tenneesee In whose hands Alf Taylor
wonld be nothing mere than a pigmy
in the hands of a giant.

Tba Hon. X. J. Hammond, Hemphla,
Mr dxab Sib Your letter on bank
ruptcy was not an intrusive, but wel
come visitor. I do not know that I
am opposed entirely to any bank
ruptcy law which provides for invol
untary proceedings, especia ly it they
were confined tsreai merchants, bank
ers and brokers, and o act ol fraud
oomnitted by them. The list of trad
eis io Senator Hoar's bill is entirely
too large, and many of the acta which
nut the bill in operation were very ob
jectionable to me. I would be willing
to go beyond acta of fraud and make
acta of prefirencs grounds of baok
ruotcy, i( only it wero provided an In
solvent might, ol bis own motion,
make partial peymenta to his credit
ors not exceeding their pro rata ahare
of hia aye's at tnat t me. My great
objection to the bill on thia point is
that aa soon asat ador becomes in
solvent hia power to do the very

I think courts aro ve-y gool In
strumentalities for deciding wbat
men's rights are but vary poor ones
to manage men's boainea. If the
bankrupt till fails entirely it will
net he for any want of co-operation
on my pari to secure a just and proper

tne prt of its mpporterj to have the
pretent unjust and oppressive bill or

Another Beiions objection in my
mind to Kena'or Hnar'a bill is its giv

judgment is that, instead of taking
another etep la tbis directioa our
efforts should bs to diminish already
overgrown jurisdiction of the Federal
courts and restore the litigation of

Tbe temper and tone of yonr letter
commend themselves to my judgment.
You may make any use ol thla letter

law. Yours very truly,
Jndse Hamraoad's Reply.
MiarHiR, June 34, 1886.
My Dear Pbhatob I am obliged to
you lor the kindly reception ol mt
suggestions about the bankruptcy bill.
I have always thought that tbe Lowell
bill was too highly artificial for oar
circumttano) b, outside ol tbe very
large commercial cities. As I aaid in
a communication to the Judiciary
Committee, applying for my viewa
some years ago, it is too much like
using a ba tery ol artillery to kill a
mouse, cr to Bend a formidable naval
armament to overhaul ao obnoxious
fishing smack, in its application to
nine-tenths ol the cases tbat would
arise under it, certainly with respect
to those arising in tbat vast extent cf
territory outside of the great commer
cial centers. A far mors simple and
Inexpensive system, with elasticity
Bullicient to make ample pro
vieion for exceptionally Urge cases
might be devised, to accompliah
every purpose, except that of winding
up every insolvent enterprise, great
and sma'l, In the Federal Courts, very
much aa insolvent railroads are now
I agree with you that the courts,
State or Federal, should be relieved ol
tbat business as long as men act
honestly and fairlv in the conduct of
their tUair. and do not trespass on
tbe just rights orolaims of each other.
For example, II an Insolvent merchant
choosts to impartially administer his
assets for the equal benefit of ait
creditors, he ahould be perm'tted to
do it and the courts ahould not inter
fere; neither ahould hiifjcreditors be
allowed to interfere by attachment
luits or other efforts to aeenre a selfish
advantage. I submit tbat it ia only
thiougb a wise and uniform system of
bankruptcy under the Federal Con
atttu lon tbat the merchant cm be
permitted to do thie, and, certainly,
only by three means can creditors
be secured in a power to prevent
preferences obtained by attachments
or other ilka methods, either with the
acquiescence of tbe debtor or against
hia will. Let me illustrate this neces
sity for a bankrupt law that shall com
prehond some protection for creditors
against the barbaric solflabnesi ol the
doctrine tbat a Stats may lay hold of
all tbe property tbat lies within its
borders, and. distribute it among it a
cittaena, or the suitors within its
A merchant In Ohio, aa permitted
by and according to the laws of tbat
Bute, impartially aligned all his
property, wherever situa'ed, for the
equal benefit of all hia creditors. Tbe
laws of tbe State of Tennessee also
permit and encourage such assign
ments. Yet, Tennessee creditors at
tached on telegraphic notice of tbe
assignment, and, because the local
lawa of Tenne-ee, aa to registration
and notice, were not complied with
and it was a physical impoes bllity to
comply with tbem before the levy ol
the attachments they inritt on a
prelerence. I ruled at the trial that the
Ohio assignment was good, bnt the
State couna here almoet aimult&ne
ontly ruled that the attachments were
etlective, and, not desiring a conflict
of decision, if pcsslble to be avoided,
on motion for new trial I have ordered
a reargument before a full bench.
Within a fortnight, under similar eir
cnaaatartcfs, tbe MarsachusiUs Su
prTCa Court has decided in favor of
the Manmcho setts creditors whs at
lacbf d. Now, I reepect'ully submit,
my dear sir, that if one State will not
recoanise the ja gentium as of any
force, and seek to evade it re a mete
aale ol comity, which they so limit as
to convert their action into a sale ol
positive International d f cour:esy that
wou d produce uufriendlmtss among
independent rations, Corgrees ehonld
hitttifcre toeufoice a mors amicable
recognition of etch other's laws. Tbe
constitution waa intended to secure
tbis, and whatever else may be left out
of a bankruptcy etatote, it ahonld con
tain provisions fo prevent euch un
friendly scrambles for preferences
among the creditors residing in differ
ent Slates. Yours trnlv.

Covinotow, Tut., Jane 25. A few
friends who era subscribe rs to yonr
paper have requeated roe to make a
remark or two upon a communication
a column long from tbe fertile pen of
tbe Rev. S. A. Steel, the mouthpiece
in Memphis if the "Rule and Ruin
party," commonly called the Prohibi
tionists. To prove that they do bring ruin In
I heir track in every instance wbera
the people bava been as demen.ed as
to let rule, I need, aire, only refer to
the back pages cf tbe Apfkal to prove.
A few days sgo th's past age appeared
in a leading article: "The Prohibition
ists have everything tbeir own way in
Rhode Island. The law recently car
tied by election is to go into effect in
a few days, aod liquor dealera are con
sequently sel ing out their stcck and
preparing to leave the rotate. The ho

r-nt now offered is not enough to keep

psy the insiiiaccs. Tlio Prhtoitionis s
are hopeful and Bay tbat tbe law will

Now thia 'a gxd reading for the
real es'ata owners of Tenne;Be9 today,
and will surely tell them how to vo'e
so that tbis great moral par y will
never get them by the throat end have
tbe chance of "strht y enforcing" euch
an urjcons itut onal law here.
As the remady is so much woree
than tke disease the citis-na of Ten
newee will have none of it.
Having regard tor your space, I will
merely notice planks six acd saven in
tbe p'a' form, and bri fly answer the
reveiend gentleman's tlrct question.
He drags In o the Prohibition pud
dle a great name, even tbat of Herbert
Spencer, knowing that thera is cot a
single ethico-religio politico -cconomico
quott'on under discussion In the
world today that th two gentlemen
would areu upon. It seems like tak
ing a great name in vain.
Plank 7. "All forms of vice ought to
bo outlawed and made publicly odi
ous." Correct. That la just what we are
for and no shamming, and with tbat
end in view I have, since the Govern
or's proclamation, come tut to co'lect
details from the daily paoers of all
the crimes that have been repo-ted in
tbose papers. I regret to have to ad
mit tbat, although tbe number of pa
pers I have aeon ars limited, the
amcunt of crime is pi'ed mountain
high; and anothtr painful admiselon I
have to make is tbat as far as I bave
examined the evidence it reflect! but
little credit upon the great moral party
for veracity in getting np theee fcti'i
tica. Whisky bna for a long time been
tbe great scapegoat upon which the
sins of the whole American poople
have been placed, and I regret to say
that, shou d he be turned into the
wilderner-s or abolished tomorrow, the
great bulk of the crime wonld remain,
and, "liko Cif ar's ghost nn the plains
of Phillippl," rise up and rebuke the 1
servility of the press and the hypoc
risy of the pulpit In this boasted land
ol liberty, in the near future.
One more remark and I am done.
Tbe gentleman says'I suppose no one
will deny that the liquor dealer Is the
only party benefited by this bnei nets.
It hurts everybody ela?." Now, as
falsity ia on the f tee of this sentence it
needs no denying. Thousands are
benefited all the time all over the
country. Tbey are too numerous to
mention, but I will name a fow. The
man tbat sella the trees to make tbe
staves, and the man that makes the
stavea aud hoops to make the barrela
and casks; all kinds cf mechanics
that assist to build breweries and
distilleries, the farmer that grows the
corn, and barley, and hops, and grapes,
and apples, aro all benefited mors or
less; and lastly the taxpayer, and it
may be the 170,000,000 worth of church
property said to be held by the Meth
odist Episcopal Church is saved from
having so much to pay because the
much abused taloon keeper bas to
pay ro much more than bis fair share;
