The Democratic newspapers of Mem
phis have no more interest in the
pending county elections than private
citizens. Desiring goad government,
the election of honest and capable
men to important offices the press has
zealously engaged in the canvass, and it
will iterato and reltorato ita appeals to
vary Democratic voter. But after
all much depends upon the people.
They must join the press and work
from now until the polls close on the
fifth day of August with that irresisti
ble force that triumphed in the last
three elections. We have an unob
jectionable ticket ; a bettor one could
not have been selected, and now let
us elect it. This we can do by work.
The press is performing its
duty; the Democratic Executive
Committee is holding almost a
continuous session, it is watchful and
vigilant But all this will avail noth
ing unless tho voting masses are
aroused to the Importance nf the cau
vasi. From every part of the county
we hear the moBt favorable reports.
The ticket has been generally indorsed.
But there Is danger of defeat unless
every Democrat goes to the polls and
work as he did in the last three elec
tions, when the county woi carried by .'
sweeping majorities for the. Demo
cratic nominees. Shelby county ia
foremost in wealth, population and
prosperity,' nd on the 5th of August
let us abb that we are foremost in
political vigor. The Republican party
ha a fail ticket in the field ; they are
i working for it day and night. Dema
' crats, be not deluded by the belief
that their divisions will insure
a Democratic triumph. On tbe
morning of the election the RepublU
can vote will be united and consoli
dated on the same ticket, Tho negroes
have frequently bolted the Kepubll
tn ticket, denounced tho leaders, and,
judging by their rant and bluster, one
would suppose that the blacks had cut
loose from thcovarssois and set up for
themselves. But on the day of the
election they were still found joined
ti their idols by voting the regular
Kopublicin ticket, even deserting the
vandidntes of their own race that
ware induced li make the Independ
ent contest. They will do so in tho
present cinvsH. On the fifth
day of August the blncki will aiuioit
to a unu desert the Icds.oondnnt ticket
a id l In only vjU cint lor it will be by
a lew whi.ei, eome of them Ddinocruti.
In view of these facts, the only way
for the Dunocrn'a t) succaed ia to
come out in their full strength an
poll a full vote. We have defeated the
Hpu'o:i.:ans with aoms of the aame
candidates they now have on their
ticket, when they were bettar organ
isod than now, and we ran do so in
thisontctt if the Democratic party
will concentrate its strength and see to
it tha'. every man votes. Talk is cheap.
It Is work, work that must sava Shelby

NOUID ASO NBKN1HI.K.
Ono of the ablest Damocratic papers
in IViincatee is the Knoxville Tribune.
It i u to ran cos ara not only sound and
tiensib'e tnr. forcibly expressed. The
Tribune says a proteclion Democrat ia
as absird ay a nioaopolint working
man. We quale from the Tribune:
"A mini who claims to be a Democrat
and thin declares himself a protec
t .oai.t is that much less a Democrat.
Tie pretsnte tha1. protection benefits
labor is a hollow mockery, and labor
is rapidly learning the fact, as is seen
in its demand f jt a graduated income
tax. Labor must naturally look to
the Democratic party as its champion
in all its just aud honest efforts to
improve its condition, and when labor
ehali uni u, as units it will, in aiding
in the overthrow of a grinding tariff,
framed only for the advantage of a
favored few, it will look on a so called
protection Democrat with as much
amusement in if he had proclaimed
himself a monopolist workingman."
Democrats are strict constructionists.
The Supreme Courts of the United
States and the States have de
clared that revenue is collected (or a
specific purpo:e and protection is no
where named as one of tlese pur-
piees-and a matter ol coarse when
revenue ia assessed to protect one in
dustry at the expense of the farmer,
the mechanic and other industries it
Is a perversion of the taxing power
and violative of that principle whit h
demands "equal privileges to all ex
clusive privileges to none. I ro
tectioa Las never been a Democratic
measure. Tbe a Hive worken in lavor
of protection are the men who hire la-bor-the
mill owners and those who
have cipital invested in protected
industries. It is not reasonable lo sup
pose that these men would spend their
time, strength and money to bolster
up aeyttem, the chief object of which nlgbt the new Board of Tiade build
ia to increase the wages of the men ing was opened he was detailed to fol-
tbey employ. It is not to their inter
est to do so. We find them cutting
down labor to the lowest notch, never
missing an opportunity to make a re
duction, and when they crowd their
men to hard that they cannot stand
the pressure and go out and strike,
these benevolent protected capitalists,
who adore protection because it gives
the worklngmen good wage, Import a
cargo of Hungarians, Poles, Italians or
Oiiniwa to take tbe places of the
American laborers, and when Ameri
can labor protects against
starvation bv driving out the
men against whom competition
they were told a . protective tariff
would shield them, the benevolent
protected capitalist call on the militia
to shoot down like dogs American
workingmen. If tbe manufacturer
favois protection because it mukes
high wages for the laborer, one would
infer tbut he approved of high wages.
But the invariable experience shows
that protected capital wars on bigh
wairea has the advantages dorived
from protection to import labor.
Workinsmen have discovered that
protection only protects the capital
Invested in manufactures, and they
demand the right to buy the neces
saries of life in the cheapest market,
regardless of the clamor of millionaires
for protection of their "infant Indus
tries," most of them musty with age
and all of them rioting in wealth,
while the labor that enriohed them is
pcor, old and decrepid.
The Louisiana augar interest costa
the people of the United States mil
lions of money. Every pound ol
sugar we consume costs from two and
a half to three eenta more than we
should pay if we grow) no sugar, but
depended entirely upon foroign sup
plies. Yet Louisiana yields a mere
handful of what we consume. A yeaa
or two ago tho New York Bulletin
stated: "The total receipts of foreign
sugar at the four porta of New York,
Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore,
during the year lost closed, were 920,
C00 tons, and of home produced only
4:)8,tons." To secure this fraction of
supply' the whole country is taxed
biijiloiis. If we paid each Louisiana
Adwer the difforonce between tho
present price of augar and the price
foreign grown sugar untaxed sells for
here, the country would be a great
galnxr. Yet our sugar growers com'
plain of liisulliclent profits. Home
time ago the New Orleans Time said
the sugar industry was languishing,
for "there is no loegsr a wide
and liberal margin of profit. On the
contrary that margin is narrower than
in any business calling for such enor
mous capitil and attended by auch
cno-mous riBka." Matters have not
improved s;nce these worda were writ
ten, but have grown worse. The large
production of beet root sugar in Eu
rope, and the extension of sugar grow
ing in new districts, have made the
little Louiiiaua business more preca
rious than ever. Only on Thursday
last tho New York Bulktin warned
Louisiana growers that a new rivalry Is
springing on against them in the river
Platte country. Cargoes thonce have
reached Buenos Ayrea and the ell
mate and eoll of the Plutto aro admi
rably adapted to the product, while
labor is abundant and cheap. There
are also extensive plantations with
sugar mills on the Uruguay and upper
Parana. Kvidontly our augar growing
policy will have to be modified; tho
country caunot be much longer denied
tae benefits of a cheap tupply ol a
necessary of life, which is at the same
time a raw material In putting up
many of our products.
TIIK SOUTH AMERICAN TIADE,
The more tbe subject is examined,
the more evident it becomes that the
United States is losing untold wealth
by its neglect of the South American
trade, a trade so eagerly sought by
England, Germany, France, aud even
the Scandanavian countries, it is
common to ray that want of communi
cation is the bar to that trade. That
want, and the antiquated navigation
and ehoit sighted InUrdicts upon
foreign trade by our tariff, are abomin
ations wo ought to blush for. But
means of communication are not the
eole dilliculty. We have close rail
r ad communication with Mexico, but
by some blundering on our part, Eng
land other European people get the
Mexican trade. If we cannot secure
tra le where wo have railroads, how
shall we gain it by eubsidiaing steam
boats to make vain voyages to por s
south of us ? Communication is
wanted, and when we attract the
rale communication. Will not
fail to be supplied with an
extravagantly extortionate tariff
forbidding trade to come to us, enter
prise is repressed, there is no spirit,
no encouragement for effort. The
h'gh tariff ia a Chinese wall that quells
and subdues the spirit of foreign trade,
once so pronurical un American
characteristic, Every merchant and
every business exchange ought to glvs
tliia subject attention. We want
foreign trade for our surplus ruunu
laoturers, and tbe tiade ol the con
tinont we dwell upon should first lie

the (aroe thing. He offered to lead

"Both speakers fad the building

pointing and centering tbe gaze ol tbe

shamefacedly acknowledged tbat there

fellow's name. Parsons exhibited
intense delight at tbe embarrassment
of the witness, and held another
whlsoered conversation with Capt,
Black. The latter at once plied farther
ques'ions on tbe same subject, con
tinuing them while the witness re
mained on the stand, snd manifestly
making a special effort to emphas:ze

tionalities, had taken enrt in the
bloodthirsty utterances of the anarch
ists. The course of the defense in this
particular wes tbe subject of much
comment in the courtroom.
a reporter for the Daily Netm, followed
Kyanonine etanu. Wilkinson s tes
timony was principally in relation to a
number of conversations had with
Spies in January last. Witne-s was
given by Spies a small spherical bomb,
an exact duplicute of the one exploded
in the buy market. Spies described it
as "the Czir," and went on to tall of
its superior destructive power. Sev
eial thousand had been manu actured
n Chicago. They were some
times distributed through the
Arbiter Zeitung office, but generally
only a few were kept there
for a'annlies. At the intersections of
two streets and meetings would inva
riably be bold at such intersections,
the crowd was to open in the shape of
a letter N. Then bombs would be
burled from the house tops adjoining,
and, if possible, an infernal machine
would be expiouea in ine miasi
of the police from the manhole
of a sewer. An anarchist had prepared
maps of all prominent street corner?,
the means of access to adjoining house
tops, and were thoroughly posted in
regard to the various underground
systems throughout the city. If the
workingmen were to strike to in force
the eight honr movement, the conflict
would probably occur then.
Lawyer Black remained standing
during the entire time this testimony
was being given. He affected to be
greatly amused, and at the 11 rat oppor
tuhity began series of bantering
questions, with the apparent attention
of demonstrating that the witness was
a novice In newspaper work, bad gone
to the expense of a fine dinner and
wine for Spies while the latter was
hoaxing him, and that tho alleged in
formation obtained from Spies was the
product of Wilkinson's own imagina

wine rartaken in Spies' company.

point He has been engaged in the
