Your correspondent felt the same way,
and threw himself on a bed in a few
minutes. Alf sent dowu word that he
would meet the Democratic side at
12 o'clock p.m. eharp.

The day was fine a id Alf led oft,
while Bab leaned back in a -country
cane bottomed chair and tcok la the
situation. Alf started in a alow way,
' but it was so evident that the fire
was hotter, and bis eyes Eew brighter
till they danced with emotion and en-
tbusiajm with this subject, which he
handled in a line way. Ladies were
crovtded in iroapj under the trees
and the trees were filled, with boys
and others trying to get to see the

perfect respect and bearing toward
each other ae beautiful to the com

After the close of each speech each

HON. ALFKKlS TAT LOB'S SPEECH.
R. R. RoblnroD, of Monroa county,
introduced the Hon, A. A. Taylor,
who spoke csfjllows: .
Tna speech. ' '
Ladles and Gentlemen and Fellow Citiisna
of the County of Monioe:
This conte'.t has been deieribed by
tue distinguished leader of the Do
med acy as 'an ejectment suit. I have
been alluded to as the prosecutor. I
aseume the role and will proceed to
the performance of my duty so far an
in my power lies. When you desire
to get rid of a treepjaeer or an im
postor you know you have to tike a
writ of ejectmeiit. The papers in this
case have all been sued out, tbe day of
trial is at hand, and yon, gentlemen
of Monroe county, are a pure cf the
jury. You cannot further trust the
Democratic psrtv with theaiiministia
tion of your affairs because of its many
sins of omiesion and commission.
You canntt tiu-t it because it went
into cower on falsehoods and prom
ises. You onnottrust it because thess
falsehoods hive now become apparent
and these protnists a-e unredeemed.
For twenty yearj the Damooratic par
ty of this county cha'god upoa the
; Republican organization that it wai
guiity cf all sons of rascality, mi'ds
meanrrs and d fdcitions in oilic?.
For twenty years these cba g'S have
been rung in every part of the coun
try by the Democratic psry. Every
platform, national and Bute, of that
party, every newspaper of Democratic
complexion, that tnee things were
true and th.V, the R -publican party
was stealing the people's money and
that it was guilty of every character of
corruption. It'siid: Let us not give
our control of affairs and we will open
up the book and will expnBO tbe ras
cals of tbe Republican party and bring
tbe rascals to justice. Tbe Demc
cratic party Lai been in . power
for two years. The books were
opened and examined with a desire
and great hope tbat tbey would give
evidence upon wh eh they could justi
fy themselves in preferring thes3
charges, and afier a critical examina
tion of the books it was found tbat the
Republican party was defaulter to tbe
sum of one whole cent, and that was
found afterward in the vault of tbe
, Treasury Department"
then went on to the discussion of the
prices of ' goods aod labor and he
brought and attributed tbe great coo
traction in values of all kinds to the
Democratic party. "Tbe time was," he
. said, 'if you had a horse worth $150
you could sell him for that; if you
t had a teer worth $10 you could get its
'value when you s:ld him. The case
is different now, end you don't have to
go further back than two yeara ago
from today. Notwithstanding tbe
American criticises me for being
a poet, yet in view of that
you can't sell a calf for $L tO
today. He then discussed the curren
cy question, and seid: "When Secre
tary Chase Is tied freenbacbs the
country was going to ruin. Don't
you remember how the Democrat! de
nounced the act, aud raid the country
would be flooded with irredeemable
currency. When the greenbacks had
performed their mission and the Re
publicans began to talk about resump
tion, and parsed the act in epiteof
the Democrats, they said 'd jn't re
sume, you will bring univertal ruin on
the country.' ' But Secretary Sherman
went right along and on the day fixed
the country bad returned to a scunj
and uniform currency.
is TBI TARIFF.
'St Mr. Taylor then took up the tariff,
and said: Fellow citizens, see the
posiiionof tbe Demotratc pariy on
the tariff. As a party, it opposes pro
tection of American industries and
American labor and their views differ
as widely as from pole to pole. He
said that the party was divided on
the tariff; tbat on one Bide of the
plunk was Bam Randall and Cbae. A.
Dana and on the other end Henry
Wa teraon, Hnrd aid Morrison, and
that when one went np the ether
weat down, and spoke to show that

labor of Europe, wt ich had been

world He said tbe Republican party
is or the maintenance of a protective
tai iff under th o'd system advocated
by Clay, Zach Taylor and Herrison.
WHAT IS THI BLAIR IDl'CATIOXAL BILL?
Why, it is simply a measure pro
posed by the Republican party to dis
tribute out of the surplus funds of the
Treasury net otherwise appropriated
the sum oi $77,0.10,000, rnnntng for
e'g'it yeais for educational purposes.
I want you to unders'aud tbat this
bill dees cot propose to step over into
the 8'ates aod interftra wi h Sia'e
igbts or the dignity of States in any
particular. It does not contemplate
management of schools by Federal au
thority. It d';es not propose to estab
lish mixed sch io'sj on the coiitrarv,
the bill conteinpla es separate tchools
for wh'te and wack. If this $77,000,
000 ia dut.ibuted upon tbe ba&is of
illiteracy, s xten Sonthe'n 8 a'es
would rereive $01,000,100 under
this bill. Tanner sen would receive
$8,OCO,000 or $1,000,000 each year for
eight years. Ha then went en to
sneak of the number of persons ia tbe
Union and State of Tennessee who
could not read and write,and and that
out of 12, 00,000 voters in the United
8 ates 1,800 000 cou'd neither read or
wr.te," he said, '?who are wielding
the billot." He then disciused the
penitentiary kaae system and said the
Republican party eajs, and its candidal-.)
declares to you today, that he is
opposed to farming out tbe convicts of
this State and is opposed to bringing
t jem into competition of the honest
labor of the land. I am opposed to
any system that discourages labor and
robe it of its just reward. '
He then said in conclusion : Gen
tlemen, I have tbe distinguished
pleasure of introducing to you the
represeota'ive of the Democratic
party of Tenne-see, a gendeman for
whom I have profound respeit; my
in'.ther'a and futicr's son, who af.er
the second day of November next will
have the consolation of knowing that

HOK. ROBT.L. TAYLOR'S REPLY.
The Hon. Robert L. Taylor then
stepped for ward and spoke as follows:
Fbllow Citizens In the days of the
Rom in Empire it was the ciibtona of
the Emperors to amuss themselves
and, their subjects with cruel and
bloody entertainment) called glad
iatorial contests. It is possible that
many of you hava come here today
With the fear tea-, you may witne's a
similar exhibition of brutality between
two brothers scrambling for the same
office. Allow me to assure you that
you will be agreeably disappointed.
Thank God, we ate not in ltoins. The
Roman Empire, its subjects and vic
tims lie buried in tbe austy tombs of
bygone centuries, . A better and
biilrer age God baa reserved for us.
As trie eag'e spurns the earth and
builds ber nes. on fie clifted crag
above the storm clouda and the storms,
si the spirit of liberty has enthroned
herself in the new world and raised
her millions of sons and daughters,
where every home is the castle and
palace of a prince and every citizen a
sovereign. It is the chief of glory of
our great Republio that all men are
as tbe eagle and untrammeled in
thought and action as the un
fettered winds of heaven. As God
has diversified His creation and
made the moons and planets, stars and
sua of Heaven to differ from each
ether in"glory, in movement and po
sition and sent them all circling in
space in nortec; harmony, so in poli
tics hat He diversified ourp'.oplein
in thought a id opinion, yit harmon
ized all on the ooo gnat principle of
free government. Ia this country
there are two sreat ideas of free gov
ernmentthe Republican idea and tbe
Democratic id- The lepiesentative
of tbe Republican idea in this cam
paign ia my brother. It devolves
upon me as the cho ca of the Demo
cratic paity of Tdnn jsjf e to represent
the Democratic idia. Is there any
thing improper, indelicate or un
bioiheriy in our meeting to disensa
publicly the interests of a great Stale
and a great nation under these two
ideas? We have net met to wrangle
or quarrel, or scramble for
the bigb. tffi e for which wa
have b.en mads candidate). Tbe
tender bond of bro:herbood ia neither
severed or abraided by our differ
ences of opinion in politics, nor can
the discussion cf political questions
dieturb the de'icaie relations. The
red rose and tha white rose blcom to
gether and sbed their odors upon the
same atmosphere, and gently strug
gling for supremacy, glorify the twi
light honn. My brother represents
today the red rote and I the white.
Our polite al hietories vary in this,
that in my budhood I was transplanted
by tender and loving lands into the
the sweet gardens of pure Democacy ;
while be, like the "last rose ot sum
mer," in toe desert of Republicanism,
was left blooming alone.
Full many a rem of pureat ra lerene.
The dark unfaihomed cavea of oo.an bean
Full man j a flower is bora to bluih unseen.
And waste its aweotnesi upon the desert air.
But, fellow citizen when you shall
have all taken a smell, and tnen taken
your choice of blostoms, the red use
will have the happy consolation that
he is the brother ol the Governor.
Fellow citizens, I meet you andgreet
yon and congratulate you upon the
final triumpn of Democratic principles.
For twenty lorjg, wcaiy years tnose
principles were trampled under foot
and the parly that clung to them and
preached them metdtf-at and disaster
in every quadrennial contest. But we
never lost hear , far we knew that
these principles were true, that they
were as e ernal as God, taut they
would live when the stars were old,
when the tun is cold, and the leaves
cf tbe judgment book unfold. In the
year ol our Lord 1880 those principles
triumphed, and the party of Jeffereon
and Jack'on and Johnson and Polk
and Cleveland aesuaied control of the
government. Notwitbs ending tbe
prophesies of Republicans, the conn
try is still safe, the colored cit zeiis are
still free, tbe pensioreis still receive
their boun1 y, ibe fields still yield, the
sun still shines, the ra n still falls, the
grass still erows, the stars still twinkle,
and the old ship of State sweeps proud
ly over e moot a seas and not a wave cf
trouble ro le across oar peaceful breast.
The year of jubilee has come.
But while we are yet in the honey
moon of our triumpn and b afore we
are thoroughly es abliehed in the pos

A NUMBER OF PARDONS ISSUED
BY TUE GOVERNOR.
Seasons for the Exercise of Execu

of the Convicts.
lariouL to ras ArriiL.I
Nashvillk, Tknn., September 9.
Gov. Bate issued to day quite a ta:ch
of pardons, some of them determined
on some time ago. Bt-low is given tbe
nam's, term at wh'ch tried, court try
ing the crime, t;rm of punishment and
reasons wby the pardon is tssuued:
T. C. Crawfoid, February terni.1870,
Circuit, Williamson, rape, lite sen
tence, reduced to fifte n years. As
the prisoner has aheady undergone
over ten yean' imprieonment, as he is
a most exemplary piisoner, as his
health is almost entirely broken down
so that much longer confinement
would result in his death, as tbe lady
whom be w as accused of ann ulling is
we 1 and happily married, and as the
trial judge, jury and many good ciii
zena earnestly ask his pardoa or com
mutation, I think it proper to cut
down hia term to twelve years, which
wi 1 release him next spring, and
therefore so ordei.
James Miller, January term, 1886,
Criminal, fiom ShelbyKcounty, petit
larceuy, three years, reduced to one
year. Tbe offense cba'sed was steal
ing a watch worth $15 and a vest
woith $i 60. For this the prisoner
was eentenced to three yeais. Hewai
only 18 years of age and bad fallen
into the habit of drinking. It is
tbouebt bv petitioners that he can bs
reclaimed to help bis mother, who is
in needy circumstances. A commuta
tion to one year is asked by the
Judge, Attorney Genera', jury and
other citizens. Lst it, therefore, be
Jacob Wheeler. Aunust term, 1880,
Circuit, Hamblen, assault, three
months in workhouse. As there was
no ona hurt in the difficulty and as
defendant had a wife and children of
eood character, and as the Judge and
citizens ask for the pardon from tnis
sentence of only three months, let it
Elisha Taylor, convicted at the Au
gust term, 188), of the Ciicuit Court
ot James, larceny, two years. It ap
pears that this is a pcor b y end tbat
the offense of which he wus charged
was etealine nroDertv valued at $5 or
$0; that his fatter has died since his
sentence began and that his mother
and her eight small children are in
destitute circumstances and in need
of his services, and that he has served
about one year. Iher. lore let bis
pardon ba issued.
William JvauKmap, ttbruary term,
1886, Circuit, Hamilton, Iarcny, two
years in the workhouse. Thiscaee
seems a meritorious one. He ha& cer
tainly served long enough in the
workhouse. It is recommended by tbe
Judge and other good citizens and of
ficial!'. Lei tbe pardon De granted.
Henry JackBou, colored, February
term, 1884, Criminal, She'by, five
yeais, reduced six months. Made be
came of his being tbe neatest and
cleanest prisoner in the pri-on when
visited by tbe Governor in Augnst.
Ed Lannon, August term, 1884, Cir
cu t, Gibson, forgery, $4 50, three
years. The prisoner was charged
with forging a town warrant for $4 50.
His character had been good previous
to this effanse. His pardon is ssk-d
by the trial Judge, Attorney General,
Mayor of the town, prosecuting county
officials and others, and it appearing
that he had already served two years
and one month and tbat his conduct
in prison is good, let the pardon
A negro named Charles Cnuleton
was arrested tonight for complied y in
tbe murder of Georce Hornberger,
whose bouy was found on the railroad
track near Franklin, Tenn , on Augunt
22d. It was at firet supposed that
Hornberger, who bad been drunk that
afternoon, had laid down on the rail
road track and been killed by a train,
as when tbe body was found the head
and fett had both been ssvered.
Subsequently it was discovered tbat
there were two knife cu s in tbe throat

A GOBOKOVS CANARD.
A special to tbe Union from Atlanta
says an evening paper there today
printed an alleged dispatch as follows:
Baraaifaa, Oa., September 9, 1K86.
It is reported here this morning that
steamships have arrived in the bay.
Their captains ttate tbey have failed
to find tbe Island of Cuba; that
not a vestige of the place re
mains. The report has created
considerable excitement and many
disbelieve it. These who think tbe
Island ba disappeared attribute its
sinking to the recent earthquake. The
repOit is being thoroughly investi
gated by parties interested a- d the
truth will be known tomorrow."
Tbe above dispatch biscrea'ed con
siderable comment here, but there are
no facts, so far as known, to justify it.
