MEMPHIS DAILY APPEALSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1836.
SU5D1T, t SEPTEMBERS, 1886.
BTBICKKM CH lUCITSK.
An unprecedented calamity bss
fallen upon the people of Charleston.
The misfortune wm so sudden and un
expected that there it mach suffering.
Thousands are made homeless and
lost their all. The calamity has been
cxtraordinaty, and demanda prompt
and extraordinary relief. Help haa
been called for, and we are gratified
to know that Memphis will do some
thing to relieve ber stricken sister.
Most of the S:uthern cities responded
to the appeal for a'd, and Memphis
will manifest her sympathy by sub
stantial aid. The people of Charleston
are battling bravely with miafiwtnnes,
and with the help that is ponring in
from the North and South it is
hoped the will soon emerge from her
desolation into comfort and that proe
petit y S3 suddenly blighted.
Fanaticism is the curse of a Repub
lic. It is always trying to socomplish
the im pet Bible, and is therefore an in
jury to any cause it espouses. The
prohibition fanat'es are busy organ!
ing a new party, which they aver is to
be a ligbteoui party, a party that will
enforce temperance, law and the oh-
servance of the Sabbath. The recent
Prohibition Convention at Uarriebaigi
Pa , tcok the position that tbik oa'ion
needs, and needs just now, a party of
rlRhteoumets, not only to secure good
laws not already on our statute books,
but as well to enforce those already
there. They believe that oar most
eaered and cherished institutions are
inpeii'. They believe tbe hour his
struck for the orgufzatioa of a party
of righteouencsi in lh!s groat nation.
Tbe convention was very emphatio in
declariog fis purpose to maintain
the Christian Babbsth. Bo it seems
that we are to ha vs a party of tight
eousaees, a religious Pio'eittnt polit
ical party. It will be a woful day to
the Republic, t j all religious denomi
nations, if the day should ever come
when religious liberty depends on tbe
capricious whims of the popular ma
jority las ead of a wr.tten constitution
which guarantees religious freedom to
all. Fanaticism baa done much of
evil in times pist, and promises to do
more. The Prohibition pirty of Peon
sylvsnia, and this teems to be the
drift of the organisation everywhere,
rtsbly unites telig'on with politic,
and proposes to prosecuti the cam
palgn on this basis. Thete people, in
their enthus'aim for their caqm based
upon moral princip'e, recklees'y strike
a blow which, if efftc'.ive, would shat
ter into a thousand fragments the
foundation rock npon which is built
our glorious Republic. Absolute and
complete (operation of Church from
State, religion from politics, Is tbe
fundamental principle of liber
ty. This creed is so deeply grounded
into the very beicg of tbe great
mass of Amei leans that it is only trite
to sty that the Piohibltion party
sounds its own death knell the mo
ment it unites religion with politics.
We call upon the true friends of the
movement to take warnlnst, acd, be

Aom their political faith. Tfce prcs

KOBE TROI IILE 1 IIBE4TENIBCG
The Appeal recently explained to lis
readers that the King of Denmark was
violating tbe constitution of that coun
try by committing tbe most arbitrary
acts through tha Prime Minister, Es
trap, even going to the extent of arrest
ing tbe Speaker of the House ot Repre
sentatives and imprisoning him. Tbe
King and bis Minister, eplie of all re
monstrances, persist in their illegal
course, and tbe patlencs of the people
is nearly exhausted. They elect Liberal
representatives, and even a great part
of tbe Conservatives have been driven
to join their former opponents, the
Liberal?. An instance will show how
insufferable tbe acts of tha govern
ment are. An article of the constitu
tion perm'ts it, in cases of extreme
urgency, to take money from the
Treasury until the Parliament meets.
This is made use of to defy Parliament.
A few weeks asro a royal decree dis
solved tbe Parliament, and be
fore all the memb.'rs had left
the bouse tha government took
from the Treasury, under a plainly
false plea of urgency, the money it
required, although unappropriated by
the Legislature. The King has put
himsilf in the 'position the English
Charles I did, for which bis h ai was
cutoff., The people hv naturally
become restlees, and a revolution
seems probable. Denmark would like
to establish a Republic, but Its neigh
tors, Germany and Russia, would
not permit that. The people
claim that they stand solely by tbe
constitut'on that compliefl with they
will us eatisuea. 1 tie sitnanou at this
moment may be judirrd of by tbe tal
lowing from tbe Conenhairen. Den
mark, correspondent of tbe Kew York
Herald : "A Danish revolution is now
impending and is likely to esue a
general Scandinavian upheaval, dur
ing which monarchical principles in
those countries cou'd only be main
tained bf tbe intervention of Rosnan
or Uerman troop. Contre coupi would
be sure to take place la thos conn
tries, causing a general movemont
thiouahotH Europe like that of 1848."
With a DaoJoh uprising added to the
situation in JMigaria, me p-oipect for
peace in Europe is not good.
Commissioner Wright has published
the first report of the Board of Labor
Statistics. It contains many facts of
great importance at this time, when
"labor troubles" have bean prevalent,
and, unless an era of good trade eeti
in andsmoctbs away diwor tint, when
more trouble still is preparing. A pro
founder investigation into tbe causes
and nature of alternate periods of trade
prospsiily and trade depression, would
have added to the value of tbe report.
EspeclRl'y light is wanted to confirm
orobliteiate the idea that is beginning
to prevail that rapid communlra'ion
by railroads and tslographs will have
the offect of closing up commer
cial transactions more iapidly, and
thus reduce the amount ot com
mercial cradit. This effnet, in
combination with other causes, would
be to ex'o ad tbe period b -twoen de
pressions, and have a loading influ

there wculJ be loss "booming" aud

other combinations are regarded as

to crnclude that labor unions must
have a similar peconia'y fffee. Too

The contest for the Democratic Con

and tbe joint discurVon between Col.

be exceedingly su'try.
"If any harm comes of it to tbe
party the responsibility reets wih Mr.
Phelao." said Col. Patterson last nlgbt.
He wrote snd requeeted me to divide
time with bim, and I answered that

will be for good, but it is against my

"Oh, no," was the reply; "I have
been busy in my office all day. I eball
aolicit no votes on personal grounds.
No man bas a right to ask
office except for party rea
sons. Wben I was nominated
for tbe Legislature in 1X821 was sitting
at my desk. I did not intend to make
any canvass for Congress, bnt have, in
a measure, b n obliged to do s. It
is not my deaire to hamper anybody

of the great questions of the day will

any Democrat can feel otherwise. If
my own brother were a candidate for

MB. JAMES PIIELAK
who was seen shoitly afterward, said
that be looked forward to a diecussion
with Col. Patterson with a good deal
of pleasure. "While it Is my inten

To tha Editora of tha Appsa! t
In view of the importance of onr
representation in Congress I take tbe
liberty of presenting through your
columns tbe results of my own obser
vations snd thought on this subject,
wbicu have led me to become a rJrm
supporter of Mr, James Phelan.
It Is first of alt desirable toat we

he will be a man new to the field.
Conid ring tbat Memphis is a grow
ing city and that the ckiuth Is in a
progressive mood, it Is not amiss that
new mater at enouid be looked lor.
James Phelan is a native of Mem
phis. He bas grown op toafamlliarity
with all its interes s. A man of
generousimpul. es and of Impn slve
nature, bis impulses sre guided by
clear judgment and a calm rearon. If
he is quick he is aleo accurate. It he
is ready, he is also enduring snd capa
bleof piulonged study aud long as
well as errneit effort. A man of fine
education, he bas kept always close in
the current of practical life. Ho has
not neglec'ed human affairs and an
interest in the affairs of his fellow men
in any enfeebling contemplation of
art, devotion to letters or rearch after
tne mysteries oi pniiosopny
While acquiring the breadth otvlew
derived from liberal educa'ion he lias
avoided all traces of pedantry. He is
liberal and scrnpuloutly honect, but
a keen, shrewd and tunctsstul busi
ness man. He ha exhibited in his
own afiai8 capacity f r public ntlnire,
He has shown in local politics, State

of trie llor system hava wrongbt, and
ret newer men, nieuiiii a witn our
newer aspirations in politic1, in buM-

Mr. Phelan is in every way fitted
for the work. He is cupable of be

close practical, bunioess like udder-
standing of aod identification with

For seven years I bave labored for
tbe independence and interests of Bul

has been for my army and officer. I
consider them my family, my children,
and I bave felt eeenre in my personal

Yes,' wss tbe reply. Then I fait

not been disappointed in my officer.
They rose to tbe level ot the sitnat:ou

officers has been reasserted. I see
around me officers who are de

that order will not be disturbed. In
whatever circumstances I might find
myself I would place my ir.flience at
