MEMPHIS APPEAL.
THURSDAY. : I JILY H, 1886.
THE TWO-THIKDS RI LE.
It is understood that n elXjit will be
made In the approaching Democratic
County Convention to substitute the
majoiity rule for the two-thirds rule.
This innovation is proposed by the
friends of the aspir-utj who aro san
guine of a mnjoiity in the conven
tion, bat doubt their ability to secure
two-thirds vote. New departure
are dangarous, and any innovation on
the established usages of thb party
alwa-s furnish a convenient excuse
lor tho o who desire a pretext for
Lol i: :g, lot ferity years the two
thirJs rule has been scrupulously oV
Berved by the Domoerat'c party. It
has bej.i faithfully adhered to by our
nat'on-1 conventions tince 1M4.
The wisdom of the rule ba3
been illustrited in tho nomina
tion bdcI eleition of such men
m Folk, I'iorte, Buchanan ar.d Cleve
land. All tha State, district and
county convention of any kind in
volving political issues hold in Ten
neinee daring the punt forty year
have adopted tho two thirds rule. It
has been uniformly obseivoJ in Shel
by county, as the files of the newspa
pers will show. It is a Iraditonary
rnle with the Domocratio party, hon
ored and respfctod on account cf fie
tjuent ubo and tho good it has done.
A deliberative body Is tho tole judge
of its own rule, and we trnst the ap
proaching County Convention will
lollow the example of all former nom
inating conventions and observe a
mlo which in the last three
conventioni secured the nomination
of men who led the party to victory.
Bad nominations are sometimes
mado under the majority rale, bat
the two-thirds rule is a bulwark bo
tween the people and incompetent
men, who by unscrupulous methods
manage to secure a majority vote.
The aspirant who cannot secure a two
thirds vote of his party shows that
there are insuperable objections to
Lis nomination. The man who is in
dorsed by a two-thirds vote goes
before the people with a prestige
which a bare majority voto never In
spires. THB DEAD MOKMTROII rY.
The Ways and Moans Committee
made quick work of Randall's poor,
little tariff bantling. The life of the
poor thing was as lleetiug as the snow
flake on the liver, for it died in bornin'.
At the burial of his progeny Randall
tlid not even feel tho emotion of tho
husband who, on seeing the colli n
of his wife lowered into the
grave, sadly said to himself:
''I've lost cows and dogs and
inckin' horsee, bnt I never bad any
thing to hurt me so," for this u natural
lather helped to strangle the mon
strosity, which he knew would not
live. An analysis of the bill shows
thatinttad of reducing the Unit im
ports $7,000,000, as alleged, it actually,
SB calculated on the basis
t)t last year's imports, increases
the Import duties, $.".,000,000. These
re the figures of Representative Mc
Millln, a member of tho Ways and
Means Committee. Mr. Randall is a
success in preventing the promised
tariff reform, but a failure in getting
tip n tariff of his own. lie has been
eminently successful in securing the
appluuee of the Republicans, but a
failure in relieving tho burdens of an
opprofRsd people groaning under the
Tobber protective system for more than
twenty years. Mr. limidall's whole
power and influence in the present
Home have been exerted to p rpctu
Ate the war taxes which the D.mio
cratio platform demmucts. He has
firmly b 'l his fu:'e S)tain6t any bill for
t e reduction of the tariff. Mr. Mor
rison's bill was not and should not be
made a tost of Democratic orthodoxy on
the tariff question. But the Democrat
who psrsis'ently votes to prevent any
reduction of taxation or revision of
the tariff whatever, as promised in the
Democratic platform, is a traitor to his
party.

"Get money, my son, get money,
honestly if yoa can, but get money."
Such was the advice of a thoughtful
lather to his son on the son's entrance
into business life, anil an unaccounta
ble number of sons since his day have
followed hi) fitherly advice, and are
following it now. To get rich is the
grand oim cf so. icty goneially today,
and Mammon ia the great god that
rales over us. The municipal authori
ties of St. Lcnie, faithful in their ssr
ice to the reigning god, have been
following the Mammon devotion of
the New York Aldermen, and the Mis
souri Legislature have not boen be
hind them in bringing forth fruit
suited to the god who is bo ar
dently served. Rival gas com
paniea and rival city and sub
urban railroads have been bribing,
and Stats legislators and city Alder
men have taken the bribes without
scruple. The St. Louis KepiiUican of
Monday contains details of the whole
sale corruption that has been going on,
that Are sickening in their revelations
of depravity. The bribing corpora
tions first need their money in secur
ing tte election of scoundrels willing
to act aa their tools. That done, the
bosine'B of bribing individual leglsla
tors and municipal city authorities of
St. Louis wont on actively; went on,
says the Republican, "with a noncha
Jence and aa openness, which, by ccm
pari son, vests its most notorious prede
cessor in a garb of respectability." A
lawyer, who was prominent among the
corruptionista, declared that wine and
women are far more effective agents
for lobbying pniroses in the
House than even ready cash. The
Republican withholds the names
of those whom there is testi
mony to implicate, but will frive them
and also the names of witnesses, to
the grand jury. Money wai need'
freely. In one caeo $1000 and J5000
stock was offered to a dolepite of the
IIouso, and other turns and favors to
others. Ono member was hold under
control, owing to the bribers having
become a: quuinted with some dark
facts in his personal history that bo
leered to have revealed. Says the
Jtrpub'.icnn, "there sterns to be enough
in the statement) concerning the
Fore Hi Perk and Carondelot railway
and concerning the Electric Elevated
nilroid to give the grand jury work to
do throughout iti coming nersion."
Corruption, the ban of empire?, tho
vilett influence that can sap the life
of a f.'ce I'spublis, ia rampant among
us. What is to deliver ui from this
fearful course that is threatening in
v, ith coining evils?
IIUFADNTlirt'N, l'IIIIViSION AND
i'KII ..
The New York litlUlin' Produce
Kx lmi go rqnrt formic! a lenction in
breadstuff)) and provisions, from the
mischievous e fleets of ioordlna'e spec
ulation. It niys: "Whi'o tho legiti
mate buslnesj in produce was nevtr
upon a more healthy basis than it has
bten sincj this your fairly opened, the
speculhto's of tho country bavj been
fighting and delaying this Improve
ment iu all our industries, and delay
ing! the recovi ry from the prolonged
depression, instead of helping it as al
ways before, and especially in 1878-79,
when specu'n'ion led to tho reac'ion."
There was first a bull speculation that
held up prices beyond the market,
which led Europe to seek supplies
olfcwhere, leaving vaet accumulations
in the speculators' hands. Then suc
ceeded a bear speculation that has car
ried the produce market be
low any former level in the history
of the present generation. The
Jlulletin shows that the speculators
having "thrown over their trusted and
successful leaders of tho post to follow
the strango and foreign speculative
gods who have been tolling as many
times the wheat crop of the whole
world for the past two or three years,
thus unduly depressing the values
here by which consuming Europe has
boen made matr of the situation and
enabled to buy the surplus of the
world at prices mado unnecessarily
low by this unlimited selling of paper
wheat. Thus, the United States have
paid the whole decline on wheat frjin
$1 30 to 80 cents on Hires or f rur times
the world's crop for each and all of
these years. Three yoars of over pro
duction, the world over, iu conse
quence of the bulla forcing prices too
high in 18.Hl.8i, culminated with
last crop, and consumption has over
taken production." The present crop, it
is hoped, will bring a reaction from
unnaturally low prices until consump
tion runs ahead of production anil
prlcas reach their former level. The
beira aro coming to the front sgiin,
and already an advance of $2 a barrel
in Inrd shows the reviving influence.
It is necessary, however, along witli
these suggestions of tho Bulletin, to re
member that the supplies of the
United States do not govern the
world's markets. That was demon
strated when speculators' eccumula-
timiB, lutended to raise prices in
Europe, were left on their hands. Ttie
very large increao of tho wheat sup
ply fiotn India alone added to the
former and present supp'ius from tho
Baltic and elsewhere has greatly
abridged our control of the world's
markets. In April last the London
Economic mid: "Our imports from
I ml) t buve enormously increased,
while those from tho United States
have decreased to a great extent. In
fact, so much progress havo those two
movements made that, if continued,
they will befoio long displace
the latter country altogether from
its dominant position as a supplier of
wheat to this market. In the six
months ending March Slst we imported
from India 7,480,000 csts of wheat, as
against only 4,024,000 cwts in the fame
period of the preceding year; while
our imports from America were only
5,034,000 cwts. against 10,204,000
cwta," As the railways in India aro
extended tho cultivation of wheat is
increased, added to which the demand
for it in Mnglaud is Increasing. This
fuller demand Is owing to tho general
adoption of a different way of milling
Indian wheat, known as "rolling mil
ling." Tho Indian wheat is extremely
hard and dry and by tho usual way of
milling these qualities were found ob
jectionable. Under tho system of
milling that is now adopted the very
qua' itits tli at were regarded as detri
mental are found to bo highly favor
able, aud the article is now valued as
nn excellent "bottom wheat." There
firts should bs remembered in fore
casting the future of wheat in this
country.

St. Loris, Mo., July 7. Judge Van
Wagoner, of the Criminal Court, today
overruled the moiion, made recently
by Maxwell's attorneys, for a new
trial. As toon as the prisoner shall
have been sentenced an appeal will
be taken to the Supreme Court. If
this shall prove unsuccessful, the case
will be taken to the Uni'.ed States
Court, on the ground that the Stato
law which allows the prosecution
more challenges of jurors than the de
fense is unconstitutional.

Washington, July 7. The Prosi
1'eot today cent to the Senate without

roads riiiht of way through the Indian
reservation in Notthein Montana.
"The reservation referred tr," the
PriBident says, "stretches across the
extreme northern part of Montana,
with Rritish America for its northern
bonmlriry. It coutains an area of over
30,000 Bipuire miles. It is dedicated
to ludian occupancy by treaty of Oc

April 15, 1874. No ladroadsare with

of a general r glit of way for railn ads

Iuduu occupants have not riven their
consent to it, neither have they been
consulted regarding it. nor is there
any provision in it for securing their

Jackson (Miss ) orre'pondence of

long now. Moigin has been renom
inated for Congrrss in the Second Dis
trict, Barry will be in the Fourth.
None of the others can be certain of
the prize until the conventions so de
dare. Barkedalp, Van Eaton, Allen

count of poBtoflice appointments. Pa
tronage is dangerous, as all Congres

vim against the dispensers of coat-
offices and other gifts of the govern
ment. The only opposition to the
Democratic candidates, so far as an
nounced, is Gon. Chalmers, in the
Second District, againet Morgan.
Catchings, who will doubtless be re
nominated in the Third, will aleo bs
opposed. Ex-Juetice Simrall has said
he may be the man, but I rather think
some younger mau will be selected.
Chalmers will make a good fight, but
Morgan win win. Had Gnalmers

Wolsey s advice to Cromwell.
be wonhl have became one of
the leading men of the South. But
ambition, or rather vanity, bos been
his bane. He is one ot the abltst
men iu Miss'ssippi, and better in
formed on political quebtions thanaoy
other man I have ever beard speau.
Ue talks, not like one who Pad tasn
up a subject just to learn sufficient to
delude tbe multitudo, but like a thor
ough student of etu esinaoship. But
tor all t hat, he is one of the most un
reliable and dangerous men in Missis
sippi, and under his leaderBh'p the
ship of stale would soon be wiecked.
Vanity Is the breath of his ncstiilB.
He feeds and grows fat upon it; and
because Mississippi did not recognize
his transcendant abilities he wars
sgainst the interests of ber people.
Were he as great as he believes him
self, the genius ot Bonaparte and tbe
younger Pitt would be found in one
man. During the war, it is cla med,
he would nt any time sacrifice the
lives of his meu for his own glory.
He sent them t gain the bubble rep
utation at the cannon's mouth for
their commander. In politics, be is
the same man. Let Cha'mers be suc
cess fill, and the interest of the State
is ssfe. iet (Jbalmera futl to prosnur,
and woe to the Commonwealth. The
prai'e of other men tastes in his
mouth like gall. Praise of him is the
sweetest nectar ever sipped by tho
gods. But he is plaudble, forcible
and an able man.
