The businiss situation fur the time
of the year remains vory favorable, as
the condit'on of incroasinK interest on
money and favorable bank clctaringii
indicate. It U thought that the ptos-pe-ct
ii all the better now Congress is
no longer aittlrg, so llit the sitoa'lon
will not be changed by any present
interference from it. Tee Morrison
surplus resolution, and the refusal to
stop tVe cainaKO of silver, had aroused
fears that Congress might cauee diffi
culty in financial affair;, but those
fears ara at rest for the present. The
tablo of clearings for the last week, on
our coxmeiclal iage, shows that mat
ters wera mors active la New York
last week than during somo of the
weeks preceding. The totals, New
York Included, show an Increase ovrr
the corresponding time last year of
40 9 par cent ; leaving out New York,
the total increase on clearings was
38 2 per cent. ; quite a contrast to the
previous week and the week before it.
It will be noticed that only one city,
. Portland, Me., reports a decrease from
the returns of the orreeponding time
laat year. 1 he New York Chronicle re
ports an upward tendency in money,
bankers' balances during lest week
ranging from 1 to 5 per cent., averag
ins about 21 per cent. Commercial
paper was plentiful with a dlmlniihloj
demand. Time money on stock ol-
later! quoted 4 to 5 per cent, for four,
five pnd six months. Loanable funds
in Nc York are mainly ooncantrated
in the tuada of very few banks. Bos
ton. Chicago, Ft. Louis and other
Western centers Lavs all their lunds
actively employed at eojd figures.
Says the Chronicle: "All things con
sidered, the outlook wou'd appear to
ba good fox remunerating ' rVba
ior te ne of money, s
,ec'ally if the epacula'ion for
higher prices on our Stock Ex
change ehould continue." In London
money in the open markot is higher,
1 per rent., with no indication i f any
spec'al activity in htigioees. The do
iu' net . ion of silver is a chocik on
any revival. Fmeign exchange woh

THE TRUTH TCBMBLT STATED.
That Memphis Watchman it the rec
ognised organ of the colored people.
It is a decent, intelligent newspaper,
edited, published and managed by J.
Thomis Tomer, L. Muiray Brown
and tbe Rsv. T. Nightingale, col
ored m-n of talent and high
respectability, ii stead .of joining
in tbe bowl about intimidation
and fraod, tbe lait number of the
Watchman gives a truthful in-
terpreta'ion of the causes which led
to the defeat of the Republicans and
the triumph of ths Democrats in the
election on Tbundty laeL In an srti
cle headed: "Shelby Gone Demo
craticColored Men by the Hack
Loads Itolled to Each Toll With Dem
ocratic Tickets in Hand They Voted
and Worked With Alarming Vim, and
Acted Cool Toward the Republican
Ticket All of Which Can Be Easily
Accounted For Homebody Will Learn
Something After Awhile," says:
"The election held last Thursday was
one of great imparlance and a little
interest was shown on the psrt cf tbe
colored people, and especially the
white Ripub icana ai far as the Re
publican tlcktt was concerned, and the
rosult was an overwhelming majority
for the Democ.-ats. ThlB election was
an unprecedented one, as the cobred
men walkid and rode in back loads to
tbe polls, voted and worked like
beavers for the succe'S of the Demo
cratic ticket with an alarming vim.
The action on the part of theto'o. ed
men can eesily be accounted for. The
white Republicans have no good rea
son to present for the lukewarmnou
at the polls. Tbe colored men are nit
going to be baadicappe d by "bowes"
and political leadere. The Watchmm,
although it made a ttrong ilgbt for the
Republic an t ickat up to the election, hai
never failed to show to the colored
man at divers times that he niUBt vote
for tbe best men for his own best in
terest regardless of party. The elec
tion was a very quiet one, and every
thing passod cfl" without injury to bod
ily peiHon. Tbe Democrat aro jubi
lant and ovtr rejoiced over their v'c
tory. The Democrats were well or
ganized and prepared for work, while
the Republicans were divided, uncon
cerned and lukewarm. Such a th'ng
will ever exist as long aa the bosses
and old wornout leaders eland at the
head i f the ranks and give commands,
and at the time they are needed they
fall to ths rear and leave the bag for
the negro to bold. Sjmebody will
loarn comething after awhile."
In these comments the truth is
tersely slated. From the time the
polls opened on Thursday morning,
the co'ored people commenced voting
the Democratic ticket openly without
so'icitatlon, and by 11 o'clock tbe
news spread from ward to wjrd that
an unprecedented number of negroes
were voting the Democratic ticket.
This was a surprise to Democrats, ai
past experiments had impressed the
Dtmocrais with the belief tbat the
negrces were joined to heir Idols, and
there was no expectation and no effort
made to secure the negro vote. la
thecouaty elections two years ago,
when the total vots of tbe city was
only . 78oS, the Republicans polled
aboat SO00 votes.-wbile in tbe election
on Thursday, when ths pipularvots
had increased to nearly 12,000, there
was no increase iu the colored
vote. In the Presidential elec
tion, lets than two yea s agi,
the Republicans of Shelby coun y
ciet 91115 votes for B'aine. On Thiirj

contempt with which these ex peri
meuts at harmony between the races
ware received by the blacks, created a
detei mioalion on the part of the whites
to make no farther overture for recon
ciliation between the two races whole
intereate are identical, who.e destiny
is the tame, and in tbe 1st canvata
tbe Democratic press, the .Democratic
speakers and the Democratic Execu
tive Committee made no Bp
peals ti sec ore the colored
vote. But the intelligent blacks
taw that ihe Democrats bad the best
ticket, and disgusted with boes rule,
in the interest of honest, economical
government, they vc ted the straight
Demociatic ticket without tolioltation
aid t) the surriee of both Democrats

ocretsof ShOby coo nty have labored
t ) b. i g about a better feeling between
te races, and have p'Bced colored
men on their ticket with that end in
view, and now that so many colored
men have voluutatily vottd with the

Rp'ej and Micha-1 H.hwab were both
on tbe witoesi stand today. The ru
mor bad been current thst Spies
would take tbe stand and it served to
att'act tbe largest crowd tbat had thus
far visited Judge Gary's court. Out
of doon the crowd was as large at the
one within the courtroom. Women
in twos and three were with their
escorts, but there was no room for the
many that were turned away. All tbe
windows in tbe courtroom were ber
mtt'cally sealed, the doors were
tightly closed, end tbe atmosphere
was tonld as toe neigbbornood ol a
blat furnace.
"Well, proceed, gentlemen." said
tbe Court to counsel for t defense.
Tbe anarchists' connsel were hold
ing b close consultation. Tbeir heads
rested together over the table, and
they whispered long and earnestly.
finally tney retired to diecues tne im

deliberations. A quarter of an hour

find him but failed and saw b's
brother In law, Rudolph Schnaubelt,
then took a car east to Clark street
and boarded another going up Cly
bourn avenne to Deering. Schwab
does not know what time he reached
the factory bat he spoke to the
strikers for aboat twenty niinu'es,
then stopped in a saloon, bad a glass
of beer and some luncli and got back

Augii't Vincent Theotkra r-nies; that

there wan a crowd of IllHiO people
pr.eent Unlthaeur Rau was at the
uiojLinx and introduced Spies to the
chairman of the meeting. Snis said :
"My speech was common place. I
told the moo to scsnd by the union.
While speaking someone cried out in
an unknown language, and 300 or 400
men ile'ached themselves from the
mee'Ingnnd made an attack on Me
Cormick's."
bp'es stid he kept on speaking for a
short time, when he too went toward
the factory. He laid he saw some
people beaide some railroad cars, and
others tunning while the police were
firing at tbem. "Tbe sight of this,"
said Spite, "made mv blood boll.
The witness declared that while he
was standing there a young Irishman
came to him and told bim that aix
men ware dead and tbat thiity had
toom wonnded. Spies then went to
the Arbeiter Zeitung flics and wrote
the a'ticle which appeared the next
morning headed "Wood."
Que, Did you write th "Revenge"

writ in word Kevenae.

the witness in a rising vo'ce,"thl this
butcnerii g cl people was done (or the
purpose of defeating the eight hour
movement.
The Stats objected and tbe remark
w ruled out.
Tbe witness said he attended the
hay market. He saw a copy of the
cucuiar closing with "workinimen.
come armed." He said he could not
attend the meeting unless tbe line was
taken out. Fkrher was sent to the
printer t have the line taken out. Tbe
witness said bs went to the meeting in
company with bis brother, Heury.
Arriving there be aaw nothing to speak
iron) aim raw the wagon uear the c r
ner ol Kandoiph itreet. Some one
siiiig sted tha the wagon should
be tiken to Rudolph s re', but
he said that tbe criwd won d
interfere with tbe etiett cars
iheie. Bjfo e he began to ereik he
asked where P.noos was, and he wis
told that he was addressing a meeting
at the corner of Randolph and Hal
sctad itree's, aud he went there with
Henry Spies and Schmabelt to find
him. The witness said he the re
tained to th wagon with Schnaubelt
He did sot see Schwab, a Schnaubelt
said he had gone to Deering to ad
dress b meeting there.
Que. Did you go into the alley
witn Schnaubelt? the witness was
aeked.
Ans. No, sir.
The witness atat ad that Schnaubelt
could not speak English and he could
not have conversation with him ia
thst language. Spies said he made an
ordinary speech at tbe hay market.
tie said be told tbe meeting that tee
masse were buna desraded. Hetben
saw I'anons, and the latter began his
speech. He remembered unimportant
portions of Panona'a speech, but
could not remember what Fielden
said. He said he remained on the
wagon during all tbe speaking. He
aaw th police on Randolph street
and heard Cant. Ward give tbe older
to disperse. He laid be was Helped
off tbe wagon by his brother Henry
and anctber man. When he bad
reached tbe sidewalk he beard a deto
nation, "and I tbonght," taid the wit
noes, "tha tbe poice were firing a
cannon to MgLten tbe penp'e." He
si!d he went to Zipl's Hall when the
firing begao. "Did you light tie
bomb?" the w.tnees was asked
Spies smiled, showed his teeth and re
p ied, "I never did." He laid be did
net see Schnaubelt in tbe alley, and
denied Gilmer's story. He said that
the interview which Mr. Wilkinson,
tbe report r, had with him lait Janu
ary, was substantially true.
Spies said be had bad tao dynamite
shells in h's office f r three years.
1 hey were ai ven to him by a man who
sailed for New Zealand. He told the
reporter in Jnuary, aj pricted, that
there were 3000 armed sccialists in
Chicago, end tecibscl to him how
the police and soldiers cou'd be fought.
He had told the icnoiter, as stated on
the trial, tbat dynamite was a child of
the future aod would prove a great
leveler.
Spies then made what the prosecu
tion claim ia a fatal admiBjion, fully
corroborating their claim that the
armed section had a secret caucus and
had prepared for an attack on the po
lice. Spies said he wrote the wurd
"Rube" wh'ch appeared in thelr6ti7r
Zeitung on May 4th. He taid tbe night
bed jre he received tne following le ter:
'Mr. Jidttir l'l(-aie insert in today s
Le t r liox tbe word Miuhe in prom
inent let'ers."
He said be did not know it baa any
import, but the next day Bil haxur
Rau ta d it wai decided by tbe armed
sect'on to have tbe word as a sign of
warning that they thould keep their
powder dry tor use against tne police
Ho told Rau that tbat was foolish, and
asked Fischer to In torn the armed
section that it was a ra s ake. Spies
then described h s arrest by the po
lice. He declared that the superin
tendent of do ice called him a "Datch
hound" and "whelp," and made an
att ck cn him. Spies said he kept
dynamite In his ctllce to experiment
with, and carried a revolver, thinking
11 waa r. good thing to drtend him
He declaied that oa the ciiiht cf the
hay market riot, however, be had left
his revolver with Ei-Aldermn Stauf-
fer. The court then ad j ournt d.
Aftaraooa McmIob.
Fifteen minutes before ths opening
of th afternoon sees'o i there was not
a vacant seat in tbe cuurtroom. The
fact that Spies was tbe witneea under
elimination lent an extraordinary
amount of interest to tbe session. The
effects of the forer.ojn o deal weie ap
patent on the face of th "arcH an
arohiai" when be came in with the
other priioaers. He was very pale
and looked anxious and worried. Hta
voire was hearse and bad a hollow
tound. When the Judge ordered that
be resume tbe stand he drew a long
breath, as if preparing for a tirib'e
ordeel, which he evidently expected
the cross examination to be.
He was cross examined by Mr. Ii
gram at g'eat lerg h. His connection

Oxford, Miss., Aogaet 9. An old
feud that has long existed between
tbe Hon. C. B. Howry and Mr. H. M.
Sullivan culminated Stturday after
toon in a difficulty in which the lht'er
was most painfu ly if not seiiously
wounded, ihe tu'lot entered the
groin in front of the body, and was
extrac ted shoitly alterward near tbe
vertebral ccluma. The uifo t'mate
affray occurred near tbe public school
'buildirg in tbe presence of seve al of
onr mutt prominent citizens. Mr.
H'jwry is an ex State t'ena'or, and at
present is fl ling tbe te'pooeible
poiition of United Slates Dis
trict At'orniy for the Noitiern
Dietriit of Miseisuppi. Mr. Sullivan
is also a lawyer, and cs a eucccssfnl
ptactitioner in both civil and criminal
law is second to none in the State.
Both gentlemen are iifluential mem
bers of ths Board cf tius'ees of the
S ate University, and Mr.Sullivan has
filled the office of Secretary ot th
Board for several years. Mr. Howry
is a direc or in the Bmk of Oxford
and ip, perhaps, the wealthiest man in
the county. Mr. Sullivan is also very
wealthy and is one of tbe largest real
csta'e owners within our corporation,
and we would regard hie removal from
active life as a calamity not only to
our town but to the entire Slate.
