WHY UEMOt HATS A KF BAXi 1 1 K
No eenaible man of either ruty
doubts the triumph of the Pumomtic
ticke'. in the couuly, election on the
5th of Ann-ore is everything
to inspiejllie belief that it will tri
uunrlfby an overwhelming majority,
uM nothing tj create tbe least doubt
as to toe remit, a recurrence to iue
last three elections in this county, and
a study of the figures which we give
below, will furoich ample reasons for
tbe belief that tbe Democrats will
carry the county by a awefping vic
tory on tbe 5th of August. In 1880
the following Democratic ticket
floated at .the masthead of the Ar
pal: ForShtrifl, Thl R. Athy; for
Trustee, E. L. McUowan ; for Chan
cellor, W. W. McDowell ; for Judge of
Criminal Court, L. B. Ilairigan.
Athy's majority over Shaw, 2880,' Mc
Gowan'a majority over Katon, 3421;
McDowell's majority over Bigelow,
4004. Id 1882 tbe Democratic ticket
was aa follows: P. R. Athy; for
Sheriff; A. J. Vaughn for Clerk of
Criminal Court; A. J. Harris for
County Trustee; John F, McCallum
for County Register; 1 M. Winters
for County Court Clerk; Joseph UW
for Cixcult Court Clerk ; B. J. Kim
broughJ for Attorney General Hartlett
Court; T. B. Crenshaw for Clerk of
tbe Bartlott Court. With one excep
tion this ticket was elected by an
averags majority of 1UO0. In 1884 tbe
Democratic nominees were W. D.
nation for Sheriff, Andrew J. Har
i for Trustee, and A. II. Douglass (or
.iuilnal Court Judge. Cannon's ma
' rlty was 2224, Harris's majority,
J001, and Douglass was elected by a
majority of 1607. It will thus be eeen
that the Democrats have carried the
county in the lant three elections by
overwhelming majorities. The candi
dates it bas elected have done nothing
to forfeit tbe confidence of the people.
Tba records which the lamented liar
rigan and Athy made are stainless.
McGowan, Cannon, Harris, McDowell,
Vaughn, McCallum, Uhl, Kim
brough, Crenshaw and Douglass have
made honest and efficient public ser
vants. The administration of every
man ia clear; blander bas not dared
to sully their spotless name?. The
Democracy of Shelby county propose
to continue business at the old stand,
and In order to morit tbe support of
tha people, who have heretofore
patnn'r.ed it bo liberally, they have
taken great pities to furnish the lust
ticket the market aflbrds. Look at
the ticket ! It is admirable and strong
in every respect. All portions of the
party are represented on the ticket.
A united party lus adop'.cd it, and ap
peal to evory good citizen to join in
its support. Democrats, do not be
lulloJ into security by the weakness
of tbe enemy. The sole object of tho
Independents is ti force a trade
with the Republicans. Without such
a combination ths Democrats will
carry the county by default. But
Intrk the'pradiction that there will be
fenion ticket on the morning of tbe
election. This will not prevent a
i.-trgoty itcreswJl Democratic majority,
for many of tbe truest and most relia
b'e K'publicans in Shelby county will
not ba. dragged into tbe suppoit of

The peculiar proceedings of the

him as the one tbe Senate his pre

In such a cese tbe President ought to

Senate, but is the administration is
Democratic, it would be declared,
whether tbe bill be signed or vetoed,
that Mr. Cleveland ia unworthy to be

and the blunt straight forwardness of
Mr. Cleveland, we are eatitfied that,

CANADA INK TII riSHEttHtN.
Tlio provocative proceedings cf the
Canadian Government against Ameri
can fishing boata are to undergo thor
ough investigation, to far as tbe first
Relzu res involving tho purchase of
bait and other articles in Nova Scotia
are concerned. Tbe later eo'zures.-in
which there has been technical viola
tions of Canadian custom bouse rulee,
cannot be resisted, as other nations,
including ourselves, have similar
maritime rules. The boat Doughty is
seleotod f s a test case, and the Domin
ion law officers huve forwarded to tbe
counsel of the United States an offi
cial s'atement of the reasons for seiz
ing that v(Hsel. It discloses the posi
tion the Cauadian authorities take,
but gives nothing new in the allega
tion of the facta of the case. It de
clares that the Doughty waa engaged
in the purchase of bait, ice, aud other
i rtkloa in a Canadian port, and tha4
this was "preparing to fi;h," which is
contrary to the treaty of 1818. The New
York 1'oft states that there have been
t wo previous charges agn i nst American
vessels for the so called offense. In
one of these cases it was held that tbe
buying of bait and ice in Canadian
ports was "preparing to fish," and
that preparing to fish waa a violation
of the treaty. In tbe otbor case,
which was later in point of time, and
was tried before another judge, it was
held that preparing to fish was not in
itself unlawful, but that it was locum"
bent on the prosecution to show that
the vessel was preparing for illegal
fishing in British waters. The latter
contains the crucial point. To pro
cure bait and ice is undoubtedly pre
paring to fish but where? Tbe
Canadian authorities appear to take it
for granted thut the fishing was to
be done in Canadian waters.
It might be so, but also the
piopHration to fish might be to fish
outBide of the three miles from shoro
that is reserved to Britiah subjects
alone. As the Doughty when eeizod
had not begun to fish, thore appeared
no prcol that it intended the unlawful
act of tithing within British bounds.
On the face of it, it appears that the
Canadian authorities have acted
wrongfully, which when proved in
court will require that tbe Dominion
pay to the owners of tbe Doughty
damages to indemnify them for the
lors and wrong they have endured.
We should not be satisfied with this
merely. If Canada continues to seize
our fishermen's boats our people will
be likely to seize theirs, and mutual
irritation would be likely to lead to
serious hostilities. All that can be
done to prevent such a result in the
future both countries sbou'd earnestly
proceed to do. What may cause seri
ous complications should be perma
nently sottled in a way that will ie

c'al from Knoxvilie, Tenn., tays:
Judge Jackson, in tbe United States
Uircmt Uouit today, pronounced an
opinion in one of the suits against tbe
l.ast Tennessee, irginia and Georgia
railroad of much Interest to tlie com
pany and the suitors against it. Under
the mortgage of 1881 it has been
clr-imed by tbe company that the
richts of the mortgagees were supe
rior to those of judgment creditors for
rei jonai damages, as well as those of
other creditor, and that no ratisfac-
tion of such ludaments could be bad
therelor until alter the mortgage had
been fully d:K?hnrged. His Honor
held that while at common law the
mortf age would take precedence of all
other claims, vet. nnder the special
eta utts of Tenneeaee, which be held
to be valid, judgments for services
rendered or for persocal injuries have
prioiitvover the mortgage. He also
stated tbat in such cases, upon proper
motion, be would direct suttielency
of the purchase money, under the
mortgage, to be withheld for the aat

claims aflecttd by this decision
amount to $200,000 or 1300,000, though

This morning tbe eight men who are

congregated a large crowd, victims to
a cariosity they are unable to gratify.
Down ttairs fa another crowd, and
still another and a larger one is con

tbe Criminal Court building. On tbe
opening of court at 10 o'clock tbe
States Attorney lcquested an ad
journment till 11 o'clock, which was
granted. Tbe reif on for this adjourn

the effect that the S ate has met with

Mr. Grinnell, luter, said bis reaon

SSuph's Hall is des goated on the map

back of tho hall, another 8:le door,
and there are two steps leading from

Cao'ain Black looks attentively a'

dropped by tbe witness. Then be

of all this, but I suppose it has some
connection with tho case."

crowd then parted in a peculiar man

noise followed by the explosion of
the bomb. The crowd fired at the
police for fully a minute, when the
latter were ordered to return to fire.
Sixty officers in all were wouuded by
bullets, seven of whom were dead.

uted at the meeting. First it was
talked about that six men had been

discussed wbat should be done the
next fcur days. Tbe pester produced
is a copy like tbat at the meeting.
E n gel pntrc daced a resolution as to
what should be done, and said, if tht re
should be an encounter wi'h the
police, tben there should be
meetings at various places to
aid the strikers; tbat North Side bad
resolved on that. If something should
happen the word "rest" was to be pub
lished in the "Letter Box" and I hat was
to be the signal for a meeting. If
there should be a disturbance thty
were to meet in Wicker Park armed.
Then a committee was appoirt?d ti
watch the movements in the city and
report if anything happened, and if
riots should occur we snouiu storm
the police stations and cut the tele
graph wires. Then we Ghould down
evoiything that came against us.
Then if one police station was
stormed they should do tbe same with
the otheis, mowing down all that
came. limy were to commence at the
station on North avenue. Kegel
said the easiest mode would be
to throw a bomb in the sta
tion. Nothing was said in
the meeting about wbera the plan
originated. It waa decided to call a
meeticgot tbe work mgmen tne nex;
evening. Those present were not to
participate iu tbe hay market meeting;
only a coinrnittea was to be there. If
they should repo.'t that something bad
happened, then the others should
come down ujon the police, then the
militia whatever should come against
tbem. Tbe witness said, "We also
thought tbat the fire department
should ba disabled. First, we were to
attack the North Avenue Police Sta
tion, the next one as fate
would have it. The plan was to
attack t:.e police stations to prevent
tbe police from coming to tLeir aid if
there should be a tight in the city.
We all thought there would be a fight,
and so calculated. Tbe plan was
adopted with the undeistanding that
every group Bbould act independently
according to the general plan. These
present from all the groups from all
parts of the city. The same proaranirue
was to be carried out in every put of
the city. There was nothing said
about the hav market. It was not ex
pected tbat tbe police Bhould get to
the bay market. Only if strikers were
attacked, then we should shoot the
po ica. Incaasofan attempt to dis
perse a mectng, we should simply
strike tliom down, however we best
could, iih bombs or whatever
shoal t be at our disposal. One
or two from each group were to
compote the coimnit'ee to be sent to
the hay ma-ket. They were to ob
serve this movements not only in the
bay market but in the different parts
of the city, and if a conflict should
happen tben they should report to us
It it happened in the daytime, then
they sbou'd cauee the publication of
the word "rest." If in the evening cr
night, tbey should raport personally
to the members' home?. The word
was a signal to meet and was only to
be inserted in the newspaper if a
downright revolution occcurred.
Fisher suggested the word and it was
arranged that tbe publication should
be made in the Arbeiler Zeilung letter
box. A committee was appointed to
attend tbe publication. I only knew
ol one of the committee, Kremer. All
present at the mee'ing accepted the
pkn. They voted by rising band,
Engel putting the question to the
meeting. The plan was to report
to such reliable men as were
absent. I repeated it to some
wbo came in later. The witness was
at Zep'a Hall when tbe bomb was
thrown. There was some commotion,
and tbe doors were closed. When
they opened he started home, stop
ping at Engel's boase on the way. He
tokla number of acquaintances there
drinking beer, tbat a bomb had been
thrown on tbe hay markc', and that
about a hundred people had been

make haste home.
The witness was further' examined
at great length, and at its conclusion
the day's proceedings closed.

BEHEARISG OF THE FAMOUS
Mrs. Crawford's Statement Denied by
Sir Charles Prominent Peo
ple la Court.
Lokdon, July 16. The rehearing in
the divorce ose of Crawford against
Crawford and Dilke, reopened by the
Queen's proctor, was begun today.
Sir Charles Diike, tbe corespondent,
was present, as also were Mis. Craw
ford and her eLt: r. Tbe courtroom
was crowded. The counsel for the
Queen's proctor, in opening the caee,
audited that tbe servants mentioned
by Mrs. Crawford in her confession as
being present or witnessing ber meet
logs with Sir Charles at his house or
elsewhere, did not confirm Mrs. Craw
ford's statements in any particu'ar.
Sarah, tbe maid wbo Mr?. Crawford
said dressed her in Sir Charles's apart'
ments alter his departure f;om the ap
pointment there, denied, the connsel
said, that she ever did as Mis. Craw

bit Charles Dilke'a oacbimn would
show that he rever stayed long at
Mrs. Crawford's housa waiting for his
master to termira'e his visits to Mm.
Crawford. Tbe coachman would fur
ther testify that he could have seen if
anything wrorg had be?n done in the
loom whore Mrs. Crawford had re
ceived Sir Charles iu ber own house,
as the coachman, frsm his box, could
easily see over the whole area cf tbe
room. A consensus of opinion makes
of the rehearing a strong attempt to
whitewash Sir Cburles Dilke. Mrs.
Crawf Mil adheres t? every statement
made in her confession.
SIR CHAEI.ES DILKE,
being sworn, denied totally all the
albgktioos concerning him made by
Mrs. Crawfoid in her cmfemion. Con
tinuing, Sir Cncrles declared tbat Mrs.
Crawford's confession was nn net of
de ibera'e conspiracy asa'nst him. He
accouotdd for tbe animus prompting
this conspiracy by sijiog that be
hid ence, through a friend, ad
vised Mrs. Ciawford to abandon
an intrigue she then had with Capt.
Forcter. The captain, learning of tLis
advice, charged the witness in sn in
terview in 185, with trying to blast
his (Fortter'e) character and chal
lenged tbe witness to a duel, roe
witness dec'ined the challenge and
treated the afl tir as utterly ridiculous.
The witness then proceeded to fur
nish evidence suggesting that Capt.
Forater and Mrs. Crawford, finding
tbat a discovery of their liaison was
imminent, concocted the story aa nst
the witnees contained in the lady's
Tbe court was crowded with nota
bilities', including many well known
lad es. The reporters had difficulty in
obtaining eeaia. Crowds cf people
were unable to gain admittance.
MRS. VIRGINIA CRAWFORD
was dressed quietly in a brown cos
tume. She was accompanied by ber
Bister j, Mrs. Ash ton Dilke and Mrs.
Harrison. She arrived early and con
versed animatedly with her counsel,
Mr.Georga Lewis. SirChes Dilke, wbo
was accompanied by his wife, looked
careworn. He followed the evidence
with tbe keenest interest It was
generally thought that Sir Walter
Phillimore, wbo represented the proc
tor, was somewhat biased in favor of
the corespondent. When summoned
as a witness S.r Charles was visibly
affectsd. In walking to the witness
box he almost staggered, but he soon
recovered his self possession and an
swered the questions with clearness
and decision. For instance, he replied
to the question, "Did yon make love to
Virginia Crawford?" with "No; cer
tainly not," clear and distinctly and
with good emphss's on tbe "certain
ly." Mrs. Crawford and Sir Charles
frequently exchanged g'ances. Tbe
former smiled amusedly when Sir
Charles denied that a liaison has ex'st
ed between them. The spectators in
the courtroom showed great interest
in the narratives of witnesses regard
ing Sir Charles's alleged intimate rela
tions witb a Fieiica woman who
was formerly in the sarvics of
his father, and afterward in bis
own service. Sir Charles, it was
stated, allowed her X40sterling yearly,
and when she was in England always
visited her at No. 65 Warren street.
Much interest was also taken in the
story of how the mysterious "Fanny"
vanished, reappeared, vanished again
before the la3t trial, reappsared after
wards and gave evidence to Sir Charles
Dilk's so icitor, and finally vanished,
and is now not to be found. It is
generally thought that Sir Charles has
not emerged fiom the cross-examination
