Tnn Demorra':c Convention is to
meet on Tbu.BcUy next, the loth
Instant, instead of the 21st, aa an
' noucced BDine days ago. Tbe change
wes made by Iho Coualy Executive
Committee y it terdy in obedience to
a very ganeial'y exprwsid desire by
the rack and fila of the rar'y. The
Appeal reg eti the cornm'.ttee did net
go fmtlior and lecall its recommended
o.derof business for the convection,
nd expresi itself earnestly in favor cf
the time honored custim of tbe party.
Nomination" Jor Sheriff have always
been first h ier, end in this casa
the old rule should be strictly (dheied
to. N5 good reason can be given for
the change, and we hope the conven-
ticn will not make it.
On tbe second page we publish the
crop repoit of Hill, Fontaine & Co.,
setting forth the condition especially
of cotton at the end of the month of
June. Of the total number of icqui
lies 128 report the crop in a bet'er
condition than it was at tbe same
time last year, 148 not so good,
and 44 about the same. This may be
-taken as a very encouraging report,
the unusually wet weather considered,
especially aa 230 report goad s ands,
64 fair stunda nud only 26 poor
stands. The Memphis cotton dis
trict may therefore be said to
be do'nt,' very well. The coin
crop within the same radius of coun
try is a'so doing pretty well. Reports
from the wh;at cop of the whole
-country are to the effect that tbe win
ter crop will be 83,000,000 bushels in
excees cf that cf laet year, and the
. spring crop only 5,000,000 binhels less.
There is a good stand of corn and
the other cereals are growing well.
Oub special dispatch from Little
Bock brings us the rather alarming
and sensational statement that the
hands on the Tate and adjoining plan'
tations, ten miles from that city, to the
number of a thousand, have threat
ened to move in a body on all the
places about and burn and destroy
everything upon them, and if they
are interfered with will murder every
white parson they can put their hands
upon. The poor creature are wild
and crazy aud are lead by incorrigible
; men, who are bound to have their
:ay. The planters, alarmed at the
treats and mutteringa and open
asts of theee leading negr-e, have
v Kh commendable promptness sent
their families to Little Hoik. lathe
meantime the Sheriff, taking time
by the forelock:, hes called out
a strong posse, and if any
attempt at destruction of prop
perty is made today will interpose the
strong arm of the law to prevent it.
He will act promptly, and may be re
lied upon to do his work thoroughly.
Life must be made secure and prop
erty be preserved from the brand of
the incendiary. Murder and des! ruc
tion are cot tbe means by which la
bor is to redress its wrong3. Peace
and safety are the essential safeguards
of society, and they must be preserved
at any cost. The people must have
peace, peace at any price.
Ma. Harrison Gbky Fissa, who
writes upon theatrical and musical
matters in the New York Star, rep:rts
the condition of the poor player as
more abject than at any time in the
history of the drama, The actor hes
become the elave of speculative man
agers, and, ns a consequence of the
'circuit system," hes neither home
nor friends. Within the past tan
years his condition has gone steadily
from bad to worse, until now he finds
himself in ras without an engage
ment, a fine pair of ligj cr a
voluptuous bust being mere
in demand than brains and
ability. Ia the periods when in
Francs anl England the sctor flour
ished, and the stage was the rtflex of
the best life of both countries1, litera
ture was at it) beet and the great
woiks in all grades of the art upon
which both peoples justly prided them
selves were produced. As the stage
deteriorated, and comedy that chal
lenged the keen and quick compre
hension of the people to appreciate
spontaneously was withdrawn to make
place for the "fleshly and lusty
drame," the theater became the lobby
of tbe bagnio and brains made place
for s'op that wes an impetus to vice.
The etjge is today in a condition of
decay, of rottenness that smells to
heaven. A pret'y face and passion
exciting figure are more than the best
comedian, beoce tbe latter and his
kind in all degrees are in the distress
that is most dire because no relief is
near. And there is realiy no pos
sible relief from these rags and
tears short of a rtvolut'on that
will restore the stage to con
scientious management in every
citv. and tbe rjrttentictis stara
.and speculative managers together are
driven Into the obscurity they deserve.
.'The old system of stock companies
shou'd be restored. By it the stage
was made to mirror nature, and it re
cruited the ranks of real stars with men
and women on whom the public set
its seal at successive steps that were
reached only by incessint labor. To
this condition tbe stage mti'.t come
aula, if such a condition as that
painted by Mr. Fiske is to be avoided,
and the poor player is to be lifted
above the contingencies of bread and
., the anxie i8 that are insepa
rable from the things that crush acd
k'ill the spirit so essential to successful

considerable excitement, which was
augmented by the fact that many
cohred men have been in the
city today bringing arms aud ammuni

other planters in the bottoms, in the
neighborh rod of the strife, have and
are removing their lightened families

on good aottiorny that tbe freed men

Hence, without material aspibtao.ee

to defend their property and protect
their rights. As previously stated,
the trouble arose cn the Tate farm by
a demand of the co'oied men thereon
emp'oyed. Most of them organized
as Knignts of Labor for higher wages.
They were being paid 75 cents per
day, and their demand' was for a raise
of 25 cents. Some people are d'spoeed
to sympathise wi;h them on the
ground that tbeir demand is jtut
tbat 75 cents is cot suffi
cient for a dav's work on
a farm. It shou'd be remembered
that wages werd always reguhted ac
cording to the purchasing power ol
money, and there never was a lime in
this country when a dollar would buy
more of tbe necessary commodities of
life than at present. A number of
planters from that vicinity are in the
city today, and your correspondent
took occasion to interview eome of
them on the subject cf w.ges nd tbe
CONDITION OK THE COLORED LABORERS
All asreed to the following: The
colored men employed on the planta
tions are paid 75 cents per day for
their labor. They are furnished houses
iu jive in, woou ana teams to Haul
wood, teams to haul water when it is
not convenient, gardens, and in many
instances garden s?edp, horres and

The planters also fu'nMi thorn with
goods they stand in need nf on credit.
the women are paid 60 cents npr
day, but of late, since the rains,
they have been paid 7." cents per day
day, also. It will thus be Been that
the wages are very liberal, consider
ing the many thinirs lu nished. It is
primarily to the in eretts of the plant
ers to keep their bands con ented.
and it is reasonable to BUDno9e thnt
they do ell within their powr to do
so. Jt is thought some tlesieninur men
are urging the tuibulent fieedmen to
DKKDS OF VIOLENCE.
Since wri i' g thq shove the reporter
has been reliably informed that the
negroes in the boighborhood of the
Tate firm did, at a secret muss meet
ing last night, pas resolutions reeolv
iuc on tho course cf destruc ion al
ready iuriicsttd above, to burn and
kill. Dr. Bryson also slates tbat he
was warned of impending danger, and
so reliable did be consider the infor
mation that he at once removed his
family. About 1 o clock this afternoon
it was rumored on the streets that
Gov. Hnghes had ordered out the
militia to quell the riot. This
however, is not true. Gov. Hughes
said to an Appeal rf porter that such
was not t'ue, and tt at no ca'l had
been made for the military. "I told
tbe Sheriff," said tbe Governor, "to
preserve the pc bv calling out such
as he thought sufficient, and I supp se
there will ije a cheerful response to h!s
call. I shall never order out the
military until a'l other means are ex
hausted. Thera is considerable ex
citement now, but I ho.ie tomorrow
will witness a change and see peace
and tranquillity restored."
A LATGKLY ATTENDED MEKTISO
of white and colored men was held at
the Circuit Court room tonight. Sher
iff Worthen was cal'ed to the chair
and stated the object of the call to be
to take precautionary steps in the
matter of the Tateplan ation troubles,
Anderson Mills, an adj. lining farmer
to the one now under surveillance,
said tlisre was nothing at all
in these rumors; tbat the Fox
brother, the runners of the Tate farm,
were themselves to blame for the
trouble, simply b-causs ihey paid

and that when they ceshed these due

Dr. F. M. Chriaman corroborated
Mr. Mills's statement. He had been

A colored man named Merriman ad
