From almost every quarter come
encouraging tidings that show the im

mere "spurt," but isagenu'ne busi

graphic report on our commercial page
Bhows that during last week the total
clearing bouse lignrs showed a gain
of 35.9 p?r cent, over the correstiorid
ing week lift year, or, omitting New
Tork w ith in specu'ative operations,
27 per cent, Chicago' gain over the
same time was 18.4 ; St. Louis, 18 6 ;
Cincinnati, 37.6; New Orleans, 31.6;
Louisville, 15.9 j Kansas City, 33.1;
Memphis, 3.7, but that figure is partly
.an estimate. The New York BulUtin

the first named purpose will be re'
turned very shortly, and thus tend to
check auy further manipulation in
this quarter. The exchange market
was fairly active and lower. Nominal
inking quotations were unchanged at
4SSJ for sixty days nud 4U0 for de

llevifw reports that nionoy continues
easy aud r.lentiful, with but a limited
demand for accommodation, the needs
of the couutry districts for funds be
ing as yet quite sinill. Hecurit'cs

Indicator says the first six months of
1881 havo not witnesiod so great a re
vival in business ax the promises a',
the beginning of the year gave reason
to expect; but the result of that pe
riod are far from being unsatisfactory.
The crop reports continue tatisfaetory,
with complaints, however, where pe r
aistetit tain bus In low grounds made
it impossible to keep down grass.
Other cotton growers report great re
lief from the rain, with a good pror

. such as to lead to a very confident ex
pectation of a solid good trade in the
fall, but there is grumbling about tho
low rata of mollis. Hut that is an
evil that will soon dlfappsar as de

country has gsne rally subsided into its
usual routine, but the rocout disputes

The Republicans bold their touven
tion on Saturday and nominated a full
ticket for county officers. It contains
Home elements of strength and still
tnoie of weakness. It will be teen
that the ticket is composed of tho
Dame elements which confronted the
Democrnry in the county elections of
l.sSO, 1882 and 1884. In these three
ticcetslve elections, the Demoera's
swept tho county by overwhelming
majorities, and they will do so again if
they nie equal to the occasion. No
pyramid can stand unless it be built
on a firm basis, and if Uie Democracy
of Shelby county would succeed on the
ftihof August, it must p'ant itself on
an impregnable rock, by the nomina
tion of men whoss characters and
qualifications fill conunnnd the en
thusiasm and cordial support of
every good c.t en. Too only
way to recurs the nomination
of such a ticket is for the
psople to interest themselves iu the
primary elerfons to be bold on the
l.'tth cf July. The party dray horses
who want no otlice and support the
Pemocrat'c paity solely in the inter
est of gcod gjvarnment, are met in
every c in vass with the opposition of
the party drones, who complain cf the
nomination of bd men wheu they
never lifted a finger toeeiurethe naml
n it ion of gooJ men. From this hour
until i ho I'lth ol July, let every Pera
ocr.it in Shelby couuty interest him
h;H in the primary election and see to
it that the b?at men aie elected as
dolcgat's to the nominating loavea
tion. When the people tike p'rt in
t he ebct on of delegates, tliey yield a
riii ly support to the noruiues, even if
their his' ebo'es have; been defsatec'.
Tin', if fiey tike no interest in the

tied rule of procedure by which the
party has been guided from time
immemorial. They recommend that
the order of nomination shall be,,
Jndge of tbeOhancery Court; 2,Jiule
of the Circuit Conrt; 3, Judge of the
Proba'e Court; 4, Jndge of the Crimi
nal Court; 5, County Trustee; 6, At
torney G.neral; 7, County It gister;
8, Circuit Court Clerk ; 9, Criminal
Court tleik ; 10, County Court Clerk ;
11, Sheriff. This is an almost com
plete reversal ol the order of other
yea's. In 1884 it wa, 1, Bherifl ; 2,
Trustes and 3, Criminal Court JucVo.
Io 1892 it was, 1, Sheriff; 2, Clerk
Criminal Court; 3, County Trustee;
4, County Register; 5, County Court
Clerk; 0, Circuit Court Clerk; 7, At

order tht should be observed by the
convention. No go-d reason can be
given lor so radical a change ts that
euggtteted by the Exscutive Commit

Sheriff should be tho las' nomination
made this year that did not exist in
1882 and 1881, and we trout the con

rules cf the parly, and not by the
committee.

Mr. Gladstone is educa'ing the poo
pie if Great Biitain not only with
horuo rule, but a'so with the cardinal
principles of democracy. Ho Ib teach
irnr them to depend not ripen what
"tho nobility and genlry" may condfr
seend to Ilinc them, but upon their
own efforts as participators in public
aQatrs. lie defines bis Irish pulley to
bo "a question of cUbbm against tho
ma?sse." This is a direct call to tho
people to lay wide that unlortuna'e
feature in English eenti merit "which
dearly loves a lord," and to look for
deliverance, not to their sell-s'ylod
superiors, but to the rnijihc of their
own power. His long experience has
taught him, and he now teaches the
people that "it has always been shown
that wherever truth, justice and hu
manity were concorned, the masses
were in tho right and the classes were
in tho wrong." This truth, so often
realized among oureelvoj, once thor
ough absorbed by tho ICnglish wind,
will clear nway their dtmendeuue upon
"the upper classes" and wjll tench
them that, whether a peasant or a
obbler, "a man's a man for a' that."
Well may the nobles hate Gladstone,
for when the mas'ex havo reached the
hight of his teaching, the nobleman's
title will bo of lhtle worth.
Canada is protesting againet its Sen
ators being appointed for life ; France
questions the use of having a Senate
at all, and England is preparing to fol
low Dp the reforms that have been
accomplished in the House of Com
mons by a "clean sweep" in its Sen-at-,
the House of Lords. A few more
exhibitions of American Senatorial
arrcgance, grasping for more power,
and objectirg to the President point
ing out ils blunders and injustice, will
bring an irresistible cry for a sound
reform of a Senate that is fast becom
ing unsound.

Nil HUNK EN AHIHAIf COM
MKKIK. There was a time, not so very long
ago, when American ships cost to the
breeze the star spangled banner on
every sea and displayed it in every
port. The commercial notions at tbat
time complained that in every enter
prise they attempted they found the
ubiquitous American before them, or
so closely following them as to share
in every advantage afforded by foreign
trade, and every privilege secured by
foreign treaties. What a chargs has
followed this prosperous state of
things so proluc'ive of progresi and
so honorable to tho couutry. Since
high tariff a h'. its desolating influence
upon the couutry, rep-oe,;ing enter
prise, restricting commerce mid check

can genius for trnJe, and wonderful
ins'inctivo capacity for marins ad
venture, aided to tho no loss wonder
ful skill and inventive faculty that
produced the bast and fleetest ships
the world had ever seen all that bus
been changed and our glorious euc
cess upon the sea are thinga cf
the past. How low tho United States
has stinky wbero once it soared high
est, is shown by a lata report from the
American Consul at Cairo, Egypt, from
the1 record kopt at the mouth of the
Suez catal of tbo number aud na
tionally of the ves.-ols passing through
the canal during the year: "Ameri
can, 3; English, 2730; French, 203;
German, 155; Holland, 139; Lnlian,
101); Austrian, 71 ; Russian, 31 ; Span
ish, 2(1 ; Norwegian, 25." Is this state
of things to be perpetuated ? Is our
country never to rovivethe glories of
the pust, never to stand a tain among
the foremost possessors of the empire
of the tea ?
A HULK TO Bt. IUN0KED.
A few days no we urged the reten
tion by the County Peniocatic Con
vention of the time honored two
thirds rule, having reason to believe
that an etlort w uld be made to sub
s i'.u'e for it the majority rule, by
which the ltspublicaus hav always
beengoidsd. Today we urge that the

TtKl'ADKM'K OF 111 r. HV.tt ATK,
To every well wisher toward the
honor and prosperity of his country,
the protrnt aspect of tho United Slates
Senate is a cause ol lorrow. The Sen
ate has hitherto bean looked upon
being more permanent than the House
ts a dim and reflective body, more
deliberate and le?s impulsive in i s
decisions than the Houso, thus stand
ing a breakwater sgiinBt hasty nnd
superllc'nl legis'a'ion. The Senate of
later years npprars to have beoiiuo
afllicted with an unhealthy lymptom
popularly called "the big head." Tho
iiIk.1i dignity of the Senate soems to
have caught a sort of aristoc:a'ic
llavor; a tendency to arbitrary ac
tion; a propensity to think that
what the Seuo'e does and counte
nances, the citizens cf tho country
who are lower down in the scale than
dignified Senators, ara hound to no
c?pU Senatorial dignity has required
that each member of that illustrious
hand of legielatoiB must have bis
private chirk, for whose services the
public money must pay. Why each
Ssnator requires a toady in the shape
of a clerk, when the Representative in
the Heme can do without one, does
not appear clear. The dignified Sen
ate also claims another privibgo not
posreared by the House, that of hold
ing, when they so choose, secret ees'
sions; seisions irom which wiurn uie
public Is excluded; se:sions that de
prive tho people of knowing how those
who are lent to represent them do the
people's business. The Senate rj claim
not only privileges that add to
their power, but also privileges
that add to their pioll s. Those
who choose or have opportunity
scccpt Mi'aiics from corporate bodies,
railways and others, to act as attorneys
working in the interest of their cor
pirate employers. Imagine the fair
nosa, the conscientiousness, and the
nics sense of honor with which tho
dignified Senators who are hird cor
pcra'ion attorneyr, vote on a bill con
cerning the clients they are paid to
support and assist. With character
istic arrogance Senator havo pro
tested from their seats that a proposi
tion to abolish this system of com
bining public duty with private inter
ests was an attack upon the "honor"
of the Senate. This at least shows a
consciousness that that honor is liable
to attuk when it sloops so far as to
accept fees and salaries tocompramiee
public duty by becoming a hireling,
bound to support private interests.
High positions naturally seeks the fu'l
nmmr.it of power considered neces
sary to support and atill furiherclevnte
it, This led the Stmate, some sessions
ago, to strive to arroga'e to itself a
portion of tho power to initiate money
appropriations, a power that is
lodged in the Houss. That failing, an
equally ambitious and indefentible
attempt was made to interfere with the
authority of the President in regard to
appointments to and removals from
otlice. Ha p ly they found in Grover
Cleveland an inllexibllity of principle
that batllsd the ichemea of Senatorial
dignity. New, a new attempt is made,
an attempt to call into question the
right of the President to correct the
ft en ale's acts of blundering or of plain
injustice, by the interposition of tl
veto. The haughty dignity and lust
of power exhibited by the Senate is
disgarting the peoplo.who love neither
the "bli head" nor t,he aristocrat.

Poli'lcians in England mtko con
tinned loferenco to the fact tba', homo
rulo exists in Canada, but many of
the Canadians ara desirous rf a larger
mixtuio of "home" with "ru'e." The
movement springs from the younger
portion, ot tin population. These
have been born iu Canada, end regard
the English connoction d ll'erently
from the older people, whose minds
are not yet frcte from the imaginative
glamour about "tho old country"
which many of thriii yet call "home."
The younger heads wsnt to have a
country and a nationality of their own,
and to possess a feeling of independ
ence when, as travelorj, they regiBtor
themselves as Canadians. A moDticg
of some hundreds of delegates
from all parts of tho Dominion
Ib holding at Montreal this
week, where ac'.ion is liable to bs
taken in favor of Canada exercising
tho right of making her own treaties,
whether with the United States or
with other foreign nations. They want
tho system of Senators holding their po
sitions for life abolished, together with
the power of the Federal Government
to veto the legislative acts of the provin
cial assemblies. They favor a liberal
measure of reciprocity with the Unit
et' Stat s, and oppose tho federation of
Ca- a la with the British Empire. Be
yond these matters of detail looms up
the desire for independent's, for tho
position of free, self governed citizsns,
who enn protect Canadian interests
more eflectually than tho London f:r
eign office. This independent sentiment
is entertained by many of the most
prominent meninCannhi.suchas Lau
rier, leader of the French in tho Fed
eral Parliament, and Merrier, leader of
tho Quebec Parliament, both of whom
are for independance. Tno French
Canadians are generally active friends
of national independence. Nova
Scotia in its late elect;oa declared for
independence, and Prince Edward and
Now Bruossick sympathise with it.
The Montrsal correspondent of the
New York Hernld, which stltes the-e
fasts, aleo states that the feeling of
these parties Ib a desire, above all, "to

They are convinced that the interests
of Canada are linked to those
of the American continent, and
not to the interests of the
old world from which they are
separated by the wide Atlantic
These national ideas are rapidly
spreading in Canada, aud they
are such as Wire sure to arise as the
country grew in wealth and power,
There is a fasti oat 'on in tho thought
of es aping the leudiiiK striugs of
colonial dependence and becoming
one of the nations of tho world, and
taking part iu the world's interna
tional affairs. A scheme in favor of
federating all the Englishcolonies with
the mother country has been grow-
inj in British favor the post few
years, but should Canada make a
decided move for independence that

Austra'ia would be sure to feel the
desire for independence arise in their
breasts. Australia and New Z salami
will probably some day constitute a
strong power at the antipodes that will
exercise a powerful influence in that
remote part of the world. In all the
schemes for independence there is no
tnlk of Betting no a King. Indepen
dence is a'sociated Trith democratic
ideas, and those ideas are making
rapid way in monarchical countries.
For good or for evil, it is evident the
various people, not useless Kings, ara
to rule the respective nationalities.

upon the fundamental principles of

said: I have myself seen a little fel

A letter of regret from President
Cleveland was read, in which he said:
"I should be very itlad to join thosa
who on that occasion will renew their
pledges of devotion to the principles
for which the fathers of the Republic
fought. These principles had no rela

Nabhvillk. Tknn.. July 4 At last,
alter many unsuccessful att jropti.and
the low f six days witn attendant ex
penses, the Ntshyille and Memphis
clubs have taxed their strength upon
local ground. The day was all that
could be as'red. By tbe onesided
scores 13 to 3, seven innings, and 16
to 4, the BlulTCity boys yielded to
their contestants tbe palm for being
superior ball plovers. Though Mem
phis was somewhat disabled by in
juries to teveral ot her players, she
was already outmatched. The Nash
villes of the six games played have
lost only one, and that was by a mere
scratch. In the first game through
two inninss Brynsn succeeded in pre
venting the eluggois from making a
a single hit, but in the thud
he was dropped on to in
such terrific shape that ho
must have wiBhed himself back once
more in the Keystone Std, frcm
which he wrs imported. When the
game was called alter the seventh
inning the locals had made seventeen
hit?, with a torsi of twenty ba'ca.
Billy Taylor made his first appearance
in tbe box and was greeted most vo-
(iieroiuiy Dy ins i-ouio
who had gathered. He yielded
two hits to the nn-t two
men at ha', but dnrirg tho
rema;nder of the gme held
bis epponents down to tbree singlts.
He was well supported by the rstof
the team. Hillery umpired in a fa!r
and impartial manner. During the
game C oigan, the catcher, was severely
hurt oa a slide to third, and wss
forced to retire. Broughton took his
place behind the bat, Sneed going to
right. The latter was unable to play
through the game on account of a core
hand, and O Lsary was substituted.
Hellman distinguished himself by
knocking a long three bagger in tbe
seventh inning.
n the afternoon there was the lar
gest attendancs that ever witnessed a
game of biseball in Nashville. The
crowd was variously estimated, but
there were in all about 4500 people
present. Of this number there were
several hundred ladies, who filled
the ladies' stand. The amphithe
