To the Editors of the Appeal:
H. T. Williamson by Lie gilecca
confoesfs judgment concerning bis lit
tle speech about the Uetmnns at the
Exposition. He is quite aware that,
like himself cr George Washington,
whose initials I bear, 1 am incapable
of telling an nntruth, except for a con
sideration, which consideration not
being fortneoming in the present in
stance I feel compelled to toll the sim
ple troth, and Gen. Williamson did
damn the patch in those very words,
that the Hermans never voted the
Republican ticket, anyhow, just this
and nothing more.. Gen. Williamson
doubtless temembers that I can call
him as a witness to the truthfulness of
my character. One July night sev
eral years ago a par!y of gent'emen
met to confer upon me the honor of
the authorship of that literary master
piece (I have heard it called nasty
pidec) "Sjuthern Democrat," the only
thing, by the way, they were ever
real y anxious to give me. When asked
to say I wrotn it, although my vanit r
was much tickled br the honor of
fered mp, Gen. Williamson will rec
ollect that my innate reuse of truth
fulness prevailed, and I repl cd, I will
not say I wro'e it, for that would be a
lie, but, like Grant, I will assume the
responsibility, which I did. Could
George Washington have doi e more
if he bad been in my p ace? After
assuming the responsibility. I took it
with me up to Cincinnati, brought it
back again and have kept it as a
eacred trust alt these years, and now
band it back again, unimpniied, to
Williamson & Co., and devoutly trust
they may never find again an individ
ual that will have the regard for his
word that I have had in such a cause;
but although Gen. Williamson may
reasonably bear witness to my truth
fulness, how can I teturn the compli
inent when I remember how that arti
cle was used, as a forgery, after I was
assured that there was no intention to
ue it in any such manner, when it
was spread broadcast all over the coun
try, even illustrated in Harper's Weekly
and lectured upon by Horace May card
at the Greenlaw Operahotue as the
utterances of a sure enough Democmt,
Horace Maynard being surrounded at
the came time on the plBil'o-m by the
Republxan gang, who were the leal
authors of that iniquitous forgery.
During all that time 1 kept silent, for
my word's eake alone, notwith
Etandicg heavy bribes that were o fit red
me, by men both in Cincinnati and in
Memphir, to disclose the real authors.
Even when Mr. Krekel, becoming
tired of his rather slight share in the
comedy, gave away ail he know, I still
remained dumb, with an -beroitm
worthy of abetter cause; but when 1
see these identical men again stretch
ing out their ranacious claws to ffflin
control of all the important offices rf
the county, my conscience is absolved,
and I feel it my duty (o endeavor
to defeat tbesa selliah and un
set upulous cormorants, and there
fore come to the front and denounce
that article and ifs author publicly, ss
I have always done in my own mind.
They tre iinworihy of any public
trust or confidence and must give way
to better men, and, as a natural con
sequence, better government. It may
be objected that I do not even now
give away the true author of this re
markable.eflusion. Concerning that,
I would say tbat I never aaked, and
Was rever informed, but have always
been under the imprrs'ion that it was
the work of the combined brains of
the Eepublican riDg, they being all
present, as pievionsly stated, when 1
agreed to asame the responsibility of
this extraordinary and honorable pro
duction, and thereby only met their
views ha,lf way, they urging me to
utter the lie, tbat I wrote it, which I
emphatically refused to do, and now
declare that I never saw or heard of
the article until it was coomon talk
on the streets. I regarded it simply
as an answer to an attack made upon
L. B. Eaton, and so accepted it. I was
mistaken, aa the result proved it was
written and used as agro s forgery,
and now these same men by whom it
was issued and worked have the lm
nudence to call a convention and claim
that they represent the decent citizens
of Hhelby county, but the voteis win
resent this insult on eke' ion day by
recording an overwhelming majority
ai'ainst these enemies of the people, i
have never been Republican or Demo
cratic, but have always considered
tbat labor is entitled to representation
of its own and fi'iulv believe the day
will come when in all countries this
will be an accomplished fact.

LITERARY NOTES.
Thb Phantom City, a volcanic
mance by William Westall, is a verv
sensational storv. the scene 'of which
is laid in the Cordilleras and is full of
the most hiahlv wrought situations
Ihe reader is kept on the alert from
the first chapter to the last, end at
gome points the interest becomes in
tense. Cassell & Co., 7!!9 Broadway,
are the publishers. Mans'onl will
order it.
Da. Plunkett, president of the S'ata
Board of JJealth delivered on the 9th
ult., at Monteagle, a lecture on "Kec
reaMon. I'a Imnnrtance and Its Neg'
lect," which he has bad printed in
very handsome style and in moBt con
venient form. It isn admirable and
timely contribution to the literature of
health and Droves bevond successful
rontradiction that "all work and no
play makes Jack a duli;boy." This
lecture should find a wide circulation.
It is well written and. while canying
its lesson in every page, is fall of in
terest to the end. ,
Tns Kifv Note, an illustrated week
ly review of music and the drama, do
serves the support of the public for
its just and discritrfna'ing articles and
its entire reliability. It does not deal
in gush, in sloppy puffs or orutal per
sonals. The editor, Mr. Archer, is one
of the most accomplished musicians
on the continent and an organist of
celebrity, who would not condescend
to any! kin if but the truth. His knowl
edge of composers and compositions is
extensive and his technical skill a
second nature with him. He is doing
a world of good, and we wish bim the
success he deserves.
Thi Brooklyn MAgazim for August
opens with an article of exceeding in
terest, entitled "Hamlet's City," which
is full of the very spirit of one of the
most legendary of the lands of Europe.
It is followed by "A New Factor in Our
Civilization," giving an idea of the
value of the gas wells in Pennsylvania
and Ohio. "England's American
Lion" is devoted to Oliver Wendell
Holmes, at present an honorad guest
in the mother land. This is followed
by the first of the letters of Mrs
Henry Ward Beecher, who with he.
husband is also an honor d guest of
the Congregatiocalisls of England. The
departments are as usual full of in
terest, and there is the usual number
of eermons from Beecher and Tal-
mage, the great lights of the Northern
pulpit.
Trig. Book Buyer for Atieust has for
its frontispiece a portrait o! Mr. Noah
Brooks, the well known journa'ist and
short story writer, author of the
' Ciuiseof theBulbs'o." It is a good
likeness, ard in execution r (pit tin
to the mark of excellence that i hurc
tr:zed the first portrait of the Beriee.
The sketch that accompanies it is a
veritable much in little atticle and
quite eatisfyiug. The London letter
of this number is unusually gocd and
the bcok reviews are of the
Hsual excellence. Announcement
is made ia the first editorial of the
publication, perhaps in Januaty, 18S7,
of Scribnet't Magazine, which we are
told is "not in any way an outgrowth or
revival of the old Scribner't Monthly, to
which The Century is now the sue
cee 8or." 27u? Book Buyer ia very ch'ap,
or ly 10 cents per number, or tl a year.

Babyhood, in its August issue, in
troduces a department of "Nursery
Observations," consisting of short ex
tracts from its large and varied corre
spondence describing special traits of
children, it says: "burn a compila
tion of the obeervation of pa.ente rep
resenting as it will a great variety of
circumstances and surrjuneinirs
should, we believo, be useful for the
purpose of comparison", eince compar
ison is the most helpful way of solving
many questions, great and small,
which arise in the minds of parents
who are interested in knowing wheth
er certain individualities are usual or
peru'iar. While making no preten
sions to scientific achievement, such a
record cannot fail in time to have a
scientific value." Tbe otber depart
ments of this number are unusually
entertaining and instinctive. One of
the moat important articles is "Diar
rhea from a Hygienic Standpoint," by
Dr. II. D. Cbapin.
Tim Forum for AuaustdoM not con
tain a dull page. Every one of tbe ten
at tides tbat comprss its contents has
a special value as devoted to a living
topic. "The Confessions of a Roman
Catholic" is a striking paper and muBt
attract attention and provoke contro
versy. It is difficult lor an outsider to
realize a man being a Catholic and
writing in tbat vein. We have beon
used to thinkiug that "absolute and
nnauestioning obedience" is what the
church exacts of all its members. Yet
here we havo not only ques
tions but answers tbat defy the
Pope and scout his infaliiblty.
"Newspaper Espionage," by Joseph

Thn action of the Sr-nate upon the
nomination of United fctatos Marshal
Freeman was a mineral topic of con
versation yeaterday. the conflicttrg
die-patches received iiu'reniiig the in-
tero t naturally felt in it. An Asso
ciated Pre68 dispatch publirhed yea
terday morning stated that his nomi
nation had been confirmed, but a
special telegram declared tbat he had
liaen reiected. Yesterday morning
Mr. Freeman received a dispatch from
Congressman P. T. Glass, stating
positively tliht he nad Deen conurmeu.
Later be telegraphed "some hitch in
the confirmation." and last night the
Asiociated Press rcknowledged its
error of the night before and banished
all hope that the action ol the
Knnatn might bave been favorable.
There is now no ground foi any belief,
except that he must retire from bis
office ts make nom for some more
fortunate man. The-e is a good deal
of speculation as to his probable suc
cessor, and as it oas Deen Known ior
weeks that Mr. Freeman's confirma
tion was doubtful, it is probable that
another man will be chosen wltnout
uelay. The neme of Mr. mv btepheo'
arm has been discaesed. He is at pre'
ent a candidate for Circuit Clerk in his
district, and was strongly urged tor the
Marshalabtp by Senator Harris, when
Mr. Freomnn. who was pushed by
Senator Jackson, was nominated. The
contest between ttiem was spirited id
the last tlegree. Mr. Freeman secured
his appointment l"st fall, and at once
entered upon tne aiscnarge or nis un
ties. He has made a great many
friends by bis gentlemanly demeanor,
and all the feeling excited by his ap
pointment over Mr. S ephenson was
rapidly passing away. His acquaintance
is extensive, ana ne numoere uis
friends by the score all over the State,
hia netition having been signed by
thousands in every hamlet of West
Tennessee who knew liim personally
and liked him. Mr. Freeman, who is
a brother of Supreme Judge Freeman
and has a distinguished umny con
nect'nn, lived for many years at Tren
ton, Tenn , before coming to Memphij,
ajd his faooily now spends a good
ilpul nf time there. The cause of bis re
jection is no', definitely known.and his
friends, not stopping lo inquire into it,
declare their belief that except for the
appointment of Senator Jackson ss
Judge of the United States Court,
which lost him his staunchest friend
in the Senate, be might have been
confirmed. His bitterest enemy was
Mayor Francis of St. Louis, who was
engaged with Mr. Freemau veans ago
Jn a speculation in wheat, by which
both are said to have lost large sums.
Francis pursued him vindictivelv.wlth
Senator Vest and Cockrell of Mis
souri at bis back, and, as has been
seen, bas been successful.
Tbe Marshal's office just after the
war was a very lucrative one, the
annual fees Browing out ol tbe bank
ruptcy law, political and other prose
cutions, amounting ia not ien tuuu
7fiO0 a vear. probablv more. Gen
eral Williamson did not, according to
his own statements and those of his
clerk's, make exceeding $2000 a year
out of the office. Daring the last two
years it did not pay enough to enable
him to keen a clerk. Marshall Free
man, during his term, has made two
or three times as rouch on account of
bis famous moonshine raids, bnt there
must soon be an end to that as wen

aantl Majority.
With the rising of this morning's
sun dawns the eve of a great battle be
tween the Pemocmlic and Republican
laities. Everything indicates a vic
tory for Domccracy and the snowing
under of the efljrt to put Shelby
county agnln under Republican ring
rule. What the majority will be is a
matter of the purest speculation. The
lowest estimate is 1200, the highest
31)00. This ifl based, of course, upon
the belief that the full Democratic
vote will be polled. Unless this is
done the Republicans will win. The
vote is too close and the contest too
important to allow the supposition
that any man worthy the name of citi
zen will neglect to cast his vote for one
side or the other. The calculation is
also based upon the promise of tbe
merchants and others to close their
doors and give their employes full
swing. Every vote counts.
Political Polala.
The majority ought to be at lea.t

Hakkis has inado a superb record as

is reposed in him by the business
community. Ho will poll the full

Galloway has made friends every

already had a host of them before,

A laboe number of the members of
the Bricklayers' Union expressed their
