Nashville, Tinn., August 12. The
ball of the Honss of Representatives
was well filled this morning, but not
so packed as it wai yesterday, many
of the deleyata having gone home on
the morning trains. The undercur
rent of feelLg ehowed iself is being
deeper than before, and the low hum
of voices betokened quiet but earnest
work. At 9 o'clock Chairman Simon
ton called the convention to .order,
and the eix'h ballot was proceeded
with. The following was the result:
HIS BALLOTING.

The announcement of the result was
received with bud and boisterous ap
plause on the part of Taylor's friends,
bib rail's scpportt-ra were not at all
disheartened at tbe apparent falling
off and prepared to change the result

changed her twenty-eight votes to Mc
Connell. This waa received with loud
cheers by the McConnell men.
Seventh Ballot Taylor, 592; Dibrell,
. 394 ; Looney, 176 ; McConnell, 182.

wag not such a demonstration, bnt Mc
Connell's Mends began to work as they
had not worked betore.
Eighth Ballot. Taylor, 532 ; Dibrell,
387 ; Lcotiey, 200 ; McConnell, 215.

from the abuses and insults of Mexi
co. The resolution was unanimously
adopted.
Ninth Ballot. The ninth ballet re
sulted in 579 ;or Taylor, S90 for Dib
rell, 174 for Ljoney, 192 for Mc
Connell. On tbh ballot a large number of
counties swung round from their fa
vorites, and tbe result WtS bardly in
dicative of u- ythiag but an anxiety to
find the s'rongett man.
Duringthe progress of the tenth bal
lot, Giles ronnty caet her 28 votes for

immaculate raiment moved that "this
convention n ruinate the Hon, R. L,
Tavlor bv acclamation."

Such a scene of excitement and con
fusion as occurred during the call of
this ballot was probably never seen in
a convention.

501. Looney 177. McConnell 8o4.
When ther.su'tof the eleveoth bal

house.
How (be nomination, Waa Received
The nomination of Taylor crea'ee
no particular entboeiasm bere, though
no donbt he will receive the full vote
of the countv.
Joneeboro, the home of Tavlor for
several years, is rejoicing at ma nomi
nation. Anvils ae being fired and
everywhere tbe greatest enthusiasm
prevails. It ia rumored there that
All layior will r el use to make the
race.
At Jackton bonfires were lighted
and there was great enthusiasm.
At Milan a hundred anna were fired.
Mr, Taylor Inlorwiewe at Knox.
The Union publishes the following
interview with tbe Hon. Robert L.
Taylor, at Kn xville, this alternoon:
Tbe news of Taylor's nomination waa
received with great enthusiasm.
Crowds stood around tbe bulletin
boards all day waiting eagerly for the
returns. To all aipe.rancei Taylor
had the aympatt y t tba crowds, and
when news ot his unanimous nomina
tion arrived there was general cheer
ing on all aides. Bob was at his desk
in the Pension Office when news came
and did not leve his work for two
honra af.erward. Be went quietly
from his office to h'S residence on
Summit Hill, wbere be was seen by
the Union c m spoorirnt. He was not
at all errited and was receiving the
Mitsoe Hender on, daughters of Col.
W. B. Henderson, who had called
with a handsome flo at tribute to the
next Governor nf Tennessee. He was
asked how I e fe t over the resnlt of
the convention ?
"I take it as a very high compli
ment." "Did you really expect it ?"
"No, I can't say that I did, bnt it
was no surprise."
"You took no personal interest in
the cauvacsr '
"None whatever; and rent here I
want to say that the compliment is tbe
more appreciated from tbe fact tun i
paid no personal attention to the mat
ter. I have always felt that to be Gov
ernor rf Tennessee would bs tbe cli
max of Bucceas in life.but many reasons
nave re strained me from mating an
active fiirht. and I beg nardon for ex
pressing the belief that mv triumph
today is a triumph of the masses of
the common people, whose confidence
and good will I possess. I propose to
make the approaching canvass on nign
ground. I believe it is time for party
leaders to rise above.petty vulgarisms
and to use their influences and make
their best efforts to elevate and dig
nify politics. The gallant men who
longnt me in tne convention
did so with pure motives,
and I had naoght to say against tbem
Indeed. I am prouder still of my nom
ination, because I have received it
over the heads of distinguished gentle
men lar more wortby, more deservin
and in every reapect better aualifiei
to fill the position of Governor than
myself, end for them I entertain noth
ing but good will and the best of
wishes.
"How about a joint canvass with
your brother Alf ?rt
"I would not object to it at all, but
am of the opinion that ether arrsge
menta will be made."
Mr. Taylor, was banqueted and
serenaded at Schubert s tonight.
Many leading Demccrata and several
Republicans were'ptesent, and a jolly
good time was experienced. He made
a short speech returning thanks for
the nomination and the ovation
tendered him by the people of
Knoxville. He has received
already 200 congratulatory telegrams,
coming from leading Democrats all
over the bute, and from county dele
gations in the convention. A dispatch
from Johnson City, his old home,
says the people are wild over h;s nom
ination. He is being congratulated on
all hands, by Republicans and Demo
crats alike, many of the former being
among nts most stead tut personal
mends.
Oar Next Governor.
Robert L. Taylor is a native of Car
ter county, and is 36 years old. He
comes of a distinguished fami y, his
tatner Having been a noted orator and
a leading politic aa of the State pre
vious to the war, and his mother a sis
ter of tbe celebrated Land in C.
Havnes. He was raised on a farm,
and entered politics ia 1876. when he
was elected to Coogrrss over Pettibone
in a recognized Republican district. It
was in his contest that he made bis
mark. He opposed one f the bit ereet
and moat powertul ItopuM cansln ien
nesse and bearded bimin Mi own den, a
Republican stronghold. The oampaign
which this you hful, untried Demo
crat made against tbe trained poli'ical
athlete hsg become a part of the his
tory of Tennessee, which Democrats
like to remember. This canvass
stamped Bob Taylor as a eo'endid
stump orator-ni8ny believe the beet
in the State, in the celebrated sena
torial .canvass in which Howell
Jackson was made United S ates Sena
tor, he waa male the candidate of
East Tennessee fer that position, re
ceiving forty-eight votes on teveral
ballots, when it only rr quired fi ty-one
to elect. Ia 1882, in the convention
which unified the Wright and Wileon
wings of the Democ atic party, be was
tbe candidate of East Tennessee for
Governor, and at one t ine came
near defeating Gen. W. B Bate, the
nominee. In 1884 he wae East Tennes
see's candidate for Elector for the State
at large, was nominated by acclama
tion, and teceived the largett vote on
the Democratic elec'oral ticket. So
that in every Sac contest during the
past six years be bas been Eist Ten
nessee's representative. He is a broth
er of tbe Rf publican nominee,' he Hon.
Alfred A. Taylor. He is c nipir uous
ly the Candida' e of the young Democ
racy. He is a man of wondt rful nog
netiem. Once his friend you are al
ways bis friend. Tbe tnthu-iasm
which his name aroueed in the con
vention and tbe so id, et-addy increas
ing pbalanx which stood at his back
were evident to all.
Why Mr. Taylor Did Not Attend the
Convention.
The following correspondence will
explain wby Mr. Taylor wai not
present at the convention. Being
United States Penriofi Agent at Knox
ville, and not wishing to violate the
order President O eveland recently
issued, he addressed an interesting
communication to the Commissioner
of Pensions, wri ing nnder date Au
gust 4th. He says: "For the prst
lew months there has been p elimi
nary campaign in Tenneest-e for the
nomination of G vrnor. My name
has been men iond in tbat con
nection, but, obedient to the
wish and requirement of the
President, I have never left my
offioe for day, nor have I taken any
active part for myself in the campaign.
Nevertheless I feel confident I will be
nomina'ed. I desire to know if, in
our judgment, it would be improper
for me to goto Nasbville ti the con
vention. I am net a d legate, but if I
am nomina'ed I wonld like tobe there.
If it ia in any way contrary to tbe
wishes of the President I will not go.
Please reply by telegraph, as I will
have to start Monday, the 9th instant,
if I go. The convention meett on tbe
11th?'
To this letter Col. McLean acting
commissioner, sent the following re
sponse: "Ia reply to year letter I
have the honor to inform yn tbat in
Ennnance to the instruction" of the
onorable Secretary of the Interior,
I have to inform yon tbat it ia better
for yon not to attend toe nominating
convention. Whilst no d- ubt exi ta
as to yonr good fahh in your proposed
action, i onr presence at the conven
tion will place yon and the adminis
tration, if not in a fale position, in
one subject to misconstruction."

ISrlOIAL TO TBI APPEAL. I
Jackson. Miss.. August 12. After
reading the reso'ution adopted by the
,uu vuuuvj .LBUJUCailU VU11VHU-
tion assembled, condemning in such
strong terms tbe Mississippi Railroad
Commission on account of tbe tariff of
charges on passengers and freights re
cently promulgated, your correspond
ent repaired to the headquarters of
the Commission and found there Mr.
F. S. Scruggs, the clerk of the beard,
and asked for light on ths subject in
question. He s ated that, according
to the rates formerly in effect as fur
nished the commission by the Vicks
burg and Meridian Railroad Compa
ny, whose tariff tbe Rankin resolution
points to, the commission has made a
reduction in many tbingj; that the
reduction in tbe pa-'sengtr rates was
25 per cent., and ia many articles of
freight it would reach the same
amount; that said railrcad has been
and is now in the hands of a
receiver, and has not for sev
eral years pait made enouyh
to declare a divldecd, and it
would have been contrary to both the
spirit and letter of the euperrisicn
law for the commission to have made
a radical reduction in tbe revenue of
an already insolvent railroad; tbat it
is not the intention of tbe commission
to raise freight or passenger rates, and
they will give atten ion ta all com
plaints made to them cf advanced
freight rates.and revise tbe same wher
ever it lies in their power to do so.

latter was all the 'alk on tneireeta.
Everywhere young men were wr tii g
to give in their names for soldiers.
The Chronicle final y telegraphed ti
Washington to know if the President
had really railed Congress back. Tbe
answer came: "Not yet."' A declara

Chau'auqua Baptist Circle met in the
amphitheater this afternoon and was
addressed by the Rev. P. S. llenson,
i. v., 01 unicago. on our Govern
ment, or the People who Govern us."
He spoke at length in a very interest
ing, numorouBana ioicuih manner on
the family government exercised by
children. He said tbat young Amer
ica ehould imitate young Aneas if
the yonng city by the Potomac were
to become aa great as the old city by
tbe Tiber. Tbe lecturer also spoke of
the tyranny of Bridget, but appealed to
t lie people to give uera uett.r chance,
Woman, he said, was a tyrant. An
other tyrant, is my lord, the editor,
"There are no kings around besides
him," said the lecturer; "lie wields a
scepter more poweital than
tbat of the Cur. Noth
ing escanes him. The printing prees
with i's firm arm of power holds com
munities from running riot. CUpital,
when inso'ent and arrogint, is an in
tuflerable tyiant who sneaks of men
as his bands. As the outcome of the
labor wartberemaycomesomehmitt')
the acquiring of olostal f rtunee."
The lecturer a-so spoke of the Knights
of Labor. He said: "A true Kniht
of I.ibor ia a true gentleman. Chr st
was a trne Knight of Lab. ir, and every
honest toiler is a Knight of Labor.
He objected t J tyranny over either
capital or labor. No man ever won
dif-tincion who did not work over
eight hours a day. Limitations should
be lifted from labor. We will have no
more fighting; no red or black tUgs at
Chicago. We will have no ting but the
