B MEMPHIS APPEAILo
MEMPHIS, TENN., WEDNESDAY. JULY 21. 18SG.
VOL. XL VI NO. 171
The defeat of Holmin'i amendment
in the House yesterday was a great
trinmnh tor the Mississippi River
Commission, and leaves that useful
Thi trial of the Converse brothers,
editors and proprietors of the Liu's
ville Chr istian Observer, ha again been
postponed, this time to September,
and on account of the indisposition cf
the Rev. Dr. Bog;s, of this city, and
the absence of some material evidence
or witnesses. This is much to be
legretted, because the tcandal
which weighs hesvi-y upon
the church has dragged its slow
length too long, and it ought to be de
cided in order that the editors might
be relieved of the stigma put upon them
by so many witnesses, or found guilty
that they might be driven from the
leadership which they have so long
exercised. Delays are dangerous.
Cokgbiss ill not adjourn before
the Sd of August. 80 says the tele
graph. Judging by the state of the
public basinets, it is doubtful if it
will adjourn then. A month
go it was confidently predicted
that an adjournment wou'd be had
by the 5th, at iatfst, the
15th of th's month. Members pro
posed to hurry things, but useless and
flatulent debates upon points of little
interest to the people ensued, and the
consequence is the public business is
very little advanced beyond the point
it I hen had re ached. It is emphal ita'
ly a dilatoiy Congress, and cannot be
forced by public opinion to move any
fester. It wi'l take its time, it will
donate and wrangle acd it will con
sult i's own convenience. But let us tali e
it again at its word, and waitpatiectly
the coming of the 2d of August.
Of making religions there eeems to
be no end. Fanaticism finds many
ways of perpetuating itself, but by fir
the most singular of these is that de
scribed so clearly on our second page.
Here we have a woman who, ignoring
her sex, claims to be the incarnation
of Jesus Christ, and assigns to ber sis
ter the place of the Holy Ghost. She
proclaims herself God, and her infat
uated followers claim that in f peaking
to her they have bad converse with
the Almighty, face to face. Nothing
like this bai been known in the world
since Anne Lee claimed to be with
child by the Holy Ghost, and
it must pui.le the most profound
philosophers to find a reason fur it in
this, our day and generation. Tho
Faithists, who still cultivate their
farm near Las Graces; N. taT, hlariut a
stone's throw from the Rio Grande,
were supposed to be as extreme a form
of religions craze as the century could
produce, but this which hss haJ its
birth at Walnut Hill?, overlooking the
city of Cincinnati, overshadows it
quite, and staggers belief in the sta
bility of onr nineteenth century civi
lization. Mrs.Maitinsurpasses Molher
Lee, and ber followers shame even the
"peculiar people" by their reach after
perfection and avoidance of sin that
Is, so far as they have divulged their
secrets. What they might prove to be
on clot 0 examination by disinterested
persons must be left to conjecture.
On the 4th of March next the terms
of the following named twenty-five
Senators will expire : Sherman of Ohio,
Gorman of Maryland, Mabone of Vir
ginia, George of Mississippi, Aldrich
of Rhode Island, Whitthorne of Ten
nefsee, Hearst ot California, Edmunds
of Vermont, Hawley of Connecticut,
Camden of West Virginia, Gray of
Delaware, Jones of Florida, Sawyer of
Wisconsin, Harmon of Indiana, Hale
of Maine, Dawes of Massachusetts
Conger of Michigan, McMillan of Min
nesota, Cockrell of Mitsouri, Van
Wyck of Nebraska, Sewell of New
Jersey, Miller of New York, Mitchell
of Pennsylvania, Maxey of Texas and
Fair of Nevada. Of these, Geoige,
bherman, Gorman and Aldrich
have been re-elected, and Ma-
bone's successor, at present serving
in the House, has been elected.
Harrison of Indiana will have to make
way for "Old Joe" McDonald or "Ob
jector" Holman. Hawley, Gray, Saw
yer, Hale, Dawes, Cockrell and Sawell
will likely succeed themselves. Cam
den is opposed by several Democrats,
and it is not improbable he may
be defeated by a Republican,
Jones will be succeeded by either
Govs. Bloxham or Perry or Repre
sentative Davidson : Conger will be op-
. posed by Representative Buriows or
Gov. Alger ; McMillan will be opposed
by Representative Washburnoj Van
Wyck by Gov. Dawes, Judge Brundy
or ex-Congressman Valentine; Hearst
is hoping for a Democratic Legislature
and re-election by it; Maxey will
be opposed by the present Govern or of
Texas; Fair is opposed by "Bonanza"
Mackay, his old partner, and by ex
Senator Stewart, the eon-in-law of the
late Gov. Foote; if the Democrats of
Pennsylvania are as successful as they
hope to be, ex Speaker Randall, ex
Senator Wallace and ex Gov. Curtin
will be candidates for Mitchell's place,
but if the Republicans carry the State
Quay, Congressman Bayne and Gen.
Negley will be the candidates
against Mitchell, who will, in
that case, try for re-election.
In New York the Republican candi
dates are "Wood-Pulp" Miller and Ira
Davenport, the Democratic being ex
Congressman Waldo Hutching and
Gov. Hill. In our own State Whit
thorne will cot bs a candiJa'e to suc
ceed himself . Gov. Bate will be a can
didate, to will Fnnk Wilson, ex-Gov.
Marks and ex-Gov. Porter, at present
Fint Assistant Secretary of State.

Valuable Crop Statistics.
Washington, July 20 The itate
ment cf crop conditions on the 1st
day of Ju'y, prepared by Prof. Dodee.
the statistician of the Agricultural De
partment, and telegiaphed to tbe press
on trie ruth instant, is today supple
mented by a fuller report giving add -
tional nets and figures ot an interest
ing character. In tbis report the pro-
teaser says: "ice area 01 corn is stead
ily increasing, wi h only the slightfHt
impetus irom loreign demand, and
still lees from the spirit manufacture,
lhe increase in seven yeair, since
1879, has been about 20 per reiit , and
the present area is about 75.000,000
acres. The increase is rapid in the
more recently settled Western States
for two reasons: Firtt From settle
ment and home making; second
from the substitution of corn for
wheat. Settlers find the demand for
wheat fixed and little variable, except
that the world's supply affects demand
everywhere, while the demand for
corn is elastic, and may be doubled
with puces sufficiently low. Wheat is
the rpoit of speculators, while corn
has seldom teen cornered.
Of spring wheat the reroit savs:
"The condition of spring wheat has
dec ined from 98.5 in June to 83.3 in
consequence of high temperature,
drying winds and want of rain. List
vear the averaze condition was 06 in
July, and, in consequence of high
temperature at a critical period, fell
to titi at the time of the harveeting. It
is a sudden fall, and though only three
points lower than la t year's crop at
harvest, a continuance of injurious
weather would be likely to threaten
further and serious disaster. Tbe ap
parent depreciation in June is 15
points, but it would be a serious error
to apply that reduction to the 151.-
000,000 bnshels of spring wheat har
vested, wh ch represented a condition
of 80 at harvesting, only 3 points
above the present condition. Should
there be no further reduction, the
present condition should inmro about
139.000.000 bushels. It should be un
derstood, however, that loss of vi
tality to early in tie season expores
the crop to further injuries by the
hea's of July and August, and renders
it highly probable that the average
condition at harvest may be still
lower. On this point of view
the injury is more serious than
the average reported e tat us of thecrop
would make it. With favorable weather
in July and August, increased condi
tion may be maintained, though the
chances ore confessedly sgaicst it.
Making some allowance for tbis prob
abil ty, a judicious and reasonable in
terpretation ot tbe July report of
winter and spring wheat, wou'd show
a prrspect for an increase of about
30,000,000 bushels above the official
estimate Gf 1885. Keu to of thrtsaing
cf winter whtat and the rmeteorul-'gi-cal
conditions of the next two months
may easily add 10.000.000 to three
figures, or subtract quite as large an
amount, me winter wheat area as
sures neariy enough lor home con
sumption and seed. Thnaverrgs ex
portation of wheat and flour for the
past five years has been 116,009,000
bushels. Tbe present expectation
favosa product nearly, if not quite
sufficient, for this rate of exportation
in add i ion to consumption. The ex
ports of lhe past year are some mil
lion Duene s lees than, tbis average.
The surplus will probably be ample,
luereiore, lor any loreign de-
maud likely to arise. The distribu
tor! 01 tie past year is aa
follows: Estimated consumption food,
271,000,000; seed, 51,474,900; exports
from preliminary statement, 3,5iKV
020; tola', 416,071,520; crop of 1885,
3r,u-'uuu; drawn irons crop of 1884,
68,959.520. The visible supply has
been decreased during the year about
13,1 OU.uoo tmbe's, leaving about 4v
000,000 buehels to ccme from the sur
plus in the hands of tbe farmerB. In
view of the present surplus, visible
and inv Bible, which is still a fair av-
erege, the list year's ofl'u-ial estima'e
is verified, and the 50,000.000 lower
estimate, so strenuously insisted on by
ambittous crop st atisticians, is accred
ited with marked emplmsis.
The condition of cats is lower tl an
io any former July repoit Bines 1S79,
when the 5 it-Id average d 25 bushels
per acre. Tbe present condition is 88 8,
egani-ts in July ot ihat year.
The average for rye ia b5.(i, aga n-t
87 lest Tear. It is nearly the tame as
Tbe condition of barley is somewhat
lowor at the present data then at the
let of July in ar.y recent year, yet the
difference is not sufficient to reduce
(?! eatly the prospective yield. It av
erages 99 7, against 92 last July, and
9 in July of the previous year.
The Payne iDventlgatloa.
Washington, July 20. The follow
ing is a report made by Senator Hoar
to tbe committee on frivueges and
Elections, upon the material submitted
by the Obio Legislature in the Payne
caee, which material Senator Hoar, as
a subcommittee, examined and anal
yzed : I bave examined the evidence
forwarded by the House cf Repre
sentatives ot U1110. The investigation
was under a resolution directing an in
quiry as to tbe charges that four mem
bers of the present Louisluture, being
also members of the last, were guilty
of being induced by corrupt means to
vote for Mr. Payne. These charges
were not sustained, and the commit
tee so reported it. But the inquiry
took a wider range. There was evi
dence to show that Mr. Payne's name
was not publicly suggested as a candi
date for Senator until after the Stale
elections; that it was not very promi
nently suggested until shortly before
his election in Jamiarjr t that many per
sons who have been e 11 prosed to fa
vor Pendleton voted for l'ayne ; that
there was a wide spread belief that
corrupt means were uied to procure
the reeu t; that one member was of-
fe ed a large sum of money for his
vote ; that there were hearsay state
ments charging corruption as to sev
eral others; that two members of tbe
Legislature received large sums of
money abont the time of the election,
of which.beins called as witaeesrs, they
gave no satisfactory account; that the
principal managers of Mr. Payne's
canvass, namely, Paige, McLean, Hunt
ington and Oliver B. Payne, did not
testify before the committee. But
there is no evidence tending to show
the bribery of a member, unless as
above stated; there is no evidence to
connect Mr. Payne, the sitting mem
ber, with theee transaction?, and none
tending to show the result was changed
or anected by such means.
Morrison's Snrpln Resolution.
Wahhinoton. July 20. Acting Sec
retary Fairchild and Treasurer Jordan
were before the Senate Committee on
Finance tbis morning to oppose the
adoption of the Morrison surplus reso
lution. In the abeence of formal ac
tion by the committee, no official
statement of the proceedings can be
civeu out for nubliration in tho tianers.
The following is gathered from vaiions
b it entirely trustworthy sources as to
tns suDstance of toe proceedings: Air.
JMircmid said tbe resolution was an
effort on the part of the legis'ative
branch of the government to impose
a new restriction upon the execu'ive
branch not heretofore thought neces
sary, and in this view representatives
of the administration were hardly at
literty to discuss the merits of the
proposition. He spoke on the eH3ump-
t'on that the administration was fully
committed to and in sympathy with
the policy of applying the surplus to
the redemption of interest bear
ing debt, and retiring such
debt as rapidly as prudent ad
ministration and sound policy
permuted, inis Deing assumea, tne
Treasury Department could not see a
ting e argument in favor of the resolu
tion, while it could see numerous and
serif us objections and ill effects and
etub irra ssments which are likely to
arisi from such arbitary legislation. It
was in bis opinion, impossible for any
hun an being to look so far into the
futu as to tell in what amounts and
at v hat intervals bonds should be
calh i and redeemed during the next
yes) Mr. Faircbild responded to a
nun ber of questions by members of
the ommiUoe as to the effects of tbe
reso ution, his statements indicating
tbe 1 enof ot tne Treasury that the de
part tent would be greatly embar
rass 1 and i's obligations violated.
Trea-urer Jordan submitted a series of
tabu'ated statements and written re
plies to questions previously pro
