MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL SATURDAY. JULY 10, 1886.
SATURDAY, I I JILT 10, 1886.
On Tuesday next the Democratic
primary elections will be held to -lect
delegates to the County Conven
tion. The interest which the people
are manifesting in the election of
delegate! presigrsa g'orious victory
in Augutt. Democrats in every part
of the county are taking a deep in
terest in the content. The people of
the city wards and civil districts are
holding meetings for the purpose of
selecting the best men to be votad for
aa delegates. In no former contest
hns there he en so much interest mnni
fested. Heretofore only a few votes
were pilled in tho election of dele
gates, but the indications are that on
Tuesday half the party vote will be
polled in the primary elections. Tho
people of Shelby county are law abid
ing, nnd they have aworn in their
hearls tl.ut tho laws passed for the
protection of society shall be enforced.
The pulpit and the press are united
in urging the nomination of the
liEBt men, and this feeling ani
mates the people in every
part of the county. There
will be a general turnout on Tuesday,
and thus a fa'r test of tho will of tho
Democrat y will be ascertained. Demo
crats who fail ti intereat themselves
in the election of delegates on Tuesday
will have no right to complain if the
result does not suit them. Let the
bett men In each ward and civil dis
trict be prerent and take an active
part. A full vote at the primary will
give us a good convention, which will
nominate a ticket that will carry tve
county by a largo majority. The first
atep in the direction of success or faiU
tire will be taken on Toes Jay. Let it
be In the right direction.
KUHNIt UKABFINM AUAIN.
KiiHsia is the mott dangerous power
in tho world. O.her countries have
learned moic or less to rrgard the pres
ervation of penes aa the beat national
policy. Ituuia alone followp, at this
day of changed ideas, the maxims of
barbaric and semi civilized nations.
It seeks aggrandisement by making
war and by seizing tho possessions of
others the good old plan, they shall
tako who mny, and they may keep
who cm. It is ever In mischief; now
it bullies Turkey, then it worrioj the
people of the Ilalknns, then it is sub
duing B3ine hordo in the deserts, and
it is continunlly extending its pro
vinces and adding to it already for
midable power, llu'gria is kept
in continual hot water, owing
to the Czar's dislike of Alex
ander, it) King. Rim ian agents are
reported as swarming hi Macedonia.
The peop'e uf Servla are in a state of
Bemi-rebellion against their King,
Milan, whom they compelled to fight
Bulgaria and now refuse to meet the
expense by opposing the payment of
the war tnxej. They nro lees patient
than wo, who tamely submit to pay
war taxes a quarter of a century after
the war is over. That Russia is help
ing the disturbance is likely, While
thus making or encouraging disturb
ance at the very doord sp of Turkey,
Russia is mercilessly dunning the Sul
tan to pay money owing for indemnity
it incurred the latt time Russia In
vadrd it. At tho conclusion of the
Crimean war Russia agreed to keep its
Jleet out of tho Black tea ; come yeara
ago she announced that sho would no
longer observe thnt pat of tho treaty,
and sailed her warships there as before.
At her last war with Turkey shesoized
theouly good harbor in it, Batouin;
the treaty of Rerlin unsigned thnt port
to Russia on its engagement that the
place should ha a free port, open to
all nations. filio has now broken that
pledge, nnd has made Cntoum a close
poll. Hho is alto massing her troops
ard is expected ti make war on Aus
tria, while tho cloture of Baton in is
believed to be aimed at Knglnud be
cause thnt country favored Bii'gvln in
opposition to Russia. It loofah u,
time that the l'uoiieau luliuis, lor
tbe'rown s f ty, ahou'd unite to put
down this bloodthinty, treaty break
jnglpower, and putting it down as they
put down Bonapaite when ho disre
garded hit engagements. Russia
wants serving as we Bhould like to
aerve tho vast estates smuggled by the
monopolists dividing tip.
THE REM tl)T FOR NrKIKKH.
A better demaud for merchandise
and the proipect of a good fall trade
has increared the demand for labor.
This, with the miction that follows
struggle, has caused a lull in the label
ngitation. It is but a lull, and not a
cessation; to believe otherwise will
he to err. Tho hst thing that can be
done during the lull is to prepare
against the renewal of agitation by
providing a safety valve that will rn
ducs tho number and decreoaa the
virulence of strikes. Thosa who have
had labor troubles to deal with much
longer than th a United fstatcs have
found conciliation and arbitration tho
only means of satisfying discontent
and allaying etrile. Conciliation is
brought about by the mesting
together of the representatives
of the employers and the employed,
who together discuss diflerences, and
where possible make mutual con
cessions and so arrive at a fair decis
ion, acceptable to both parties. If the
' process of conciliation fail arbitration
is resorted to. The lmdon corre
spondent of the Hjfcton Admliter
writes to that paper the result of In
vestigations be has been making as to
the construction and working of the
reconciliation and arbitration bodies.
He has received valuable aid from the
president of the Board of Trade, Mr.
Mundella. Mr. Thomas Burt, for
merly a miner, now a member of
Parliament, has supplied him with in
.formation reporting lubor dispute
settlements, in which ltiista ed that
in the north of England coal trade op
to twenty yeara ago strikes were very
numerous, but for many years pant
they have been practically unknown.
When diflerences arise at any paitica
lar mine, six representatives each from
employers and men meet tcgetber
with an independent person as chair
man, who has the casting vota in t&ta
ol a "tie." It hss resulted as one set
tled point of this calm way of settling
disputes, that the best way of arrang
ing wagfs is by the sliding scale, wages
rising or falling accord ng to the au
thor'zed quotations of the colling price
of the material produced. Where tho
nature of the business admits of this
plan, it is found more eatisfactory than
any other. In same trade departments
in this country the scale plan has
been adopted. In the north of Eng
land they have no permanent board
of arbitration, but many think one de
sirable. Only ones of late years in
Northumberland has there been a
strike, tho employers refusing t9 agree
to arbitration. When arbitration
Is resorted to, each side ap
points two arbitrators. If these
fail to agree they appoint an umpire,
whose decision is final. In that
country and in Durham there bave
been only eight resorts to arbitration
since 18711. The awards there were
Invariably accepted, not a mino Stop
ping work for a day. In other parts
of England there aro some variations
cf detail from this northern system,
but the general mode of proceeding
Is about the same everywhere. There
is an investigation of the circumstances
in dispute, points of agreement are
brought oat, and where employers
and men aro on amicable terms, fair
c oncost ion settles the rest. Where
there is a general question of the rise
or fall of wages, the proceedings are
conducted with special care and do
liberation, and usually without undue
exci'oment. The men continue J
their work while the repre
sentatives settle the matter. If
no settlement can bo arrived a', then
a strike Is reported to. In ono district
tho judge of a court is the umpire.
When conciliation fails the men who
know having been unable to decide
the ma'ttr, they ask the man who
does not know to decide it for them.
While there is no angry or excited
feeling mnong ourselves, and men and
omployers are working in harmony,
our manufacturing and transportation
people Bhould agree upen come (iich
plan es the English bave found to an
swer, so as to avoi J future stiikes and
Fkrtinint to the water qucition,
which has been opened nunin by
President Latham, comes the news
that th s corner stone of tho new wa'er
works of Amsterdam is shoitlytobe
laid, much of the work having been
done. Tho water is taken from the
river Vocht at a point three miles
from the site of tho pumping and fil
tering works. "At this point," mys
the IOihIoq Timet correspondent,
"the water will be lifted into deposit
ing reservoiis having a united ca
pacity of 18,000,000 gallons. After
haying m filtered through filter
beds of novel construction, the water
will pss into a series of covered pure
water reservoirs. From these it will
be pumped up a stundplpe 232 feet in
bight, and convoyed tlier.ee through
two lines of parallel mains, twenty
seven inches and twenty-four inches
in diameter, respectively, into tho city
of Amsterdam, a distance of about
seven miles, The separate system of
Biipply will involvo the laying of up
ward of 1-0 miles of distributing
pipes, including the exceptionally
difficult work of crossing u:.dor no
fewer than 100 of the uiuals with
which Amsterdam abounds, some of
which are of grot width and depth."
H w ill thus he seen thnt to gst pure

has to be done. But in the saving of

Brownsville State l)emcrat: Our

see's candidate for Governor. He vie
ited Brownsville this week, when be
met many of our citizens, who ex
tended him not only a cordial wel
come, but gave him substantial assur
ance cf hearty snppoit in his canvaes.
Col. Looney has visited various
portions of the State, and every
where be has been received
with the kindest consideration. Bs
ing the only candidate from Wist
Tennossee, and in every way fitted for
the high position, be inures as one of
themrst formidable candidates now
in the race. His own coutity, Shelby,
with its seventy-six vote", will go into
the convent'on solid for Col. Looney
being instructed to vote for him so
long as his name remains before that
body and with his own eoction prac
tically unanimous and with a Urge
following from Middle Tennesee and
some strength in E tat Tennessee, he
wi l, at the outset, hs the tt oogestman
presented. Col. Loooney is no chronic
office seeker. He never held office
but ttill he bas always eivon his time,
energy and means to the Democratic
party. Ho believes that the tendency
of the Rmublican party is to foster
monopolies and thus to make thn rich
richer and the poor poorer, and that
tho Deniosratx party is the party for
the people. The party cou'd not se

To the Editors of the Appeal:
Oifobd, Miss., July 8. As your
paper h?s a vary wide escalation in
Mississippi, I nhh to call attention to
an article which lately appeared in it
in regard to tbe rxtraordinary action
of the Board of Trustees. Perhaps the
woid extraordinary wruld be inap
propriate to tliis board, though it
would apDly io any ottier. I do not
know whether to cdl it an experi
mental or an e.tperimtnling b ard. Our
corernots seem ta bave thought that
lawytrj alone were cumpetent to or
ganize and conduct an ins'.itntion of
learcicg, and they have tried tbe ex
periment of making our body of tuis-
e' s adore corporation d lawyer), l be
ieve that by tbissnus arcidenial side
wind, two pt-rsonp, not lawjer', ha7e
been drilled mto tbe board, and one
of them is rf ported to have ntd es toon
as he learnea the material of whi'jh
the body was compoEed. Now lawyers
are very ntcastary perrons, si to
speak, ii dispensable in some casee,
our Governors rjera to think in all
catcs yi t they would hadly Belrct them
as arch tect', or n'anagers of a farm or
railroad coramisrioners, or indeed
intiu-t to them any of thtir private
interests except their busicess before
the courts. This experiment of our
Governors i f iutruS'tinn our inhtitu
tions of learning to lawyers alone has
been a most egr. gioua failure, f s is ap
parent t) a 1 ni :n. As the boaid was
an experiment it was but natural that
it should be an experimenting body.

FROM THE PEOPLE.
Politics anil Boycotts.
To the Editor! of the Appeal :
Why wan not Mr. Hook nominated
by the Republicans? Too much boy
cott; and tbe Republican party of
ShelDy desorvps the thsnks cf all con
servative citizens fcr putting its foot
upen such prescriptive and intoler
ant doctrine. Freemen will not allow
any associa ion to diitite terms of la
bor between employeis and operatives ;
and it Is a source of sincere gratifica
tion to find the more intelligent and
C3DSfrvat;ve of the Knights of
Labor promptly and boldly ignor
ing this odious dogma of sime of tbe
fanit c3 of tbat crder. Their action
was timely, too, as several courts have
ju;t decided that boycotting is a crime
against the rich's, privileges and liber
ties cf the people egiicst whom these
crtzy lerdais would ftait this engine
of cowardice and oppression. Shame I
ishamel eternal shame upon any so
ciely that will say to amanwiih a
hungry family, "You can work if you
w.ll agree to work on nur terms; but
if you wieh to contract with Mr. A. on
t9rms tbat may tuit yen both, then
we will do all we can to
keep you and your family hun
cry." Let these chiefs of the
boycot'era look over int) Arkansas,
and see what their negro allies are
doing there. They are on a "strike,"
and declare that they ill not work
tbe crops unless at h'ghor wage, and
tbat no one else shell -tlo bo. That's
the boycotters style, is it not ? Sup
pose the d' etrine was practically car
ried out What would become of the
crops over there? How would the
negroes iive except by depredation
and pil'age? Ate the boycotters o
Memphis ready to encourage tbe ne
groes to continue tbo strike? Are
they leady to snd aid to tbe negroes,
to keep the wolf from the dcor while
the gras nnd the weeds are growing
and a'l hands hungry? Now's the
time for the boycotters of Memphis
to stand by their colors.
