MEMPHIS APPEAL.
8UKDAT, t SEPTEMBER 12, 188G.
TENiPAOES
OHDAT NIGHT'S DEBATE.
The joint debate at the Exposition
Building tomorrow night should be
' attended by every Democrat in the
-county who has the interests of his
party at heart. Both of the gentle
men whg seek the Congressional
nomination are thoionghly in earnest,
well up in the great questions
which now occupy the public
mind, and have distinctive ideas
of the policy which should be
pursued by the Representative
to be chosen by the people next No
ember. Mr. Phelan is confident that
his views are in harmony with those
of the great mass of voters. Co). Fat
tenon, differing from him. still enter
tains the same opinion in regard to
himself. Here they rest the case. They
deserve to be heard, aod, like true
Domocra's, they are ready to accept
toe popular verdict.

"Public opinion seema to havecen
tared on Henry J. Lynn as one of the
Democra'ic candidates for Slate Bona'
tor. Mr. Lynn has earned thin prom
inence by fifteen yearn of matchless
eeal and labor for tlie Democratic
party. During those many years of
toil, he has been a constant worker
either on the State, District or County
Democratic Executive Committee at
the cost of much valuable time and
money. Asa figure In S lute politics
ho has acquired grant prominence,
nd no man in Tenuceaee stands higher
wiui tne ucmocrauo parly. At a
critical moment in the Democratic
Convention of 1832, when the party
was about to be sundered on a plank
added to the platform repudiating the
interest on the Stale dobt during the
war, Mr, Lynn obtained the floor
at a perilous moment and
in a speech of great tact, ap
propriateueu and ability poured oil
on the troubled waters and preserved
the harmony of the Democratic party
After Mr. Lynn had concluded his
eloquent "and powerlul appeal to the
excited convention a motion was
made to reconsider the resolution,
' which had already caused many dele
gates to bolt the convention, and the
obnoxious plank was stricken from
thesp!atform and the convention ad
journed in harmony. This admirable
strategic movement on the part of Mr.
Lynn saved the party in 1882, as the
plank which he succeeded in eliminat
ing from the platform If adopted would
havs increased the strength of the
Bky Blues to such an extent that
Hawkins would have been re-elected.
Lynn is entitled to the honors of his
party, not merely on account of bin
valuable services, but because of his
great busine qualifications. He has
auppleoion'tea a useful career as a
Democrat with the duties of

A 1UKP OUT OF TINE.
The saddest spectacle on earth is
groat mind in ruins. John Q. Saxe is
a poet, s'ateeman and pbilospher.
Thirty years ago his star had reached
a glorious culmination. He edited a
Democratic newspaper in Connecti
cut and was not only able and pro
found, bnt bright and sparkling. The
literary periodicals of the countiy
were illuminated with his gems of po
etry and learned essays on the most
abstrure questions of the day. Fiftoen
years agi, when he was in the full
splendor of his fame, he visited Mem
phis at the instance of E. 0. McDow
ell, president of the Memphis Literary
Society, aod delivered eeveral lectures
which could not be mrpasstd for eru
dition and brilliancy. Mr. Saxe was
accompanied by bis daughter, who
inherited the genius of her
father. Our people regarded him
as the equal of Haskell and 'Mar
shall. In physical stature he was a
model tall and woll proportioned,
and contemplated life with the cheer
fulnesscf a boy. But one by one dra'h
bns robbed him of his loved ones
He sadly dwells upon the Iofs of wife
and children. He has lucid intervale,
and attributes his melancholly suffer
ings to the shock his norves received
in a railroad ace'dent twelve years
ago, in which he miraculously es
caped death by fire. He presents a
pitiable spectacle to the friends who
knew him twonty years ago. Hii
hair and beard are white as snow; his
form is bent and emaciated, and his
step slow and tottering. He is no
longer the nation's wit, humorist,
statesman and philosopher. It is
'range that the greatest intellects are
the easiest ja-red from their equilib
rium. Tho history of the world
shows that the man with Imaginative
power and tender affection suffers
more than one who is coarse or has
blunted sensibilities. This would im
ply that " TIs folly to be wise where
Ignorance is bliss ;" that the uncivilized
barbarian is happier than the edu
cated intellect. It is true that the
widening of our Intellectual horiion
increases our susceptibilities. But in
tellect and learning should be based
on that philosophy which teaches
submission to misfortunes as a pait of
life. Troubles always press heavily on
those who, like Saxe, yield to them
without resistance. If Saxe had ap
pealed to his philosophy and tore
himself by a vigorous resolution from
the anxieties that havs wrecked him
his melancholy would have vanished
and given place to new hopes
and new courngo. Despondency
is the refugo of the coward
Fortune is fickle and the firm aud
resolute spirit has a heart for every
fate. Poetical natures like that of
John G. Saxe suffer because the vivid
ness of their Imaginations tends to
exaggeration. Tbey do not see the
evils as they are, but as they appear
to their excited fancy. The bird of
Paradire escapes from the storm by fly
ing high above the surging tempest,
and so will the manly man by arming
himself to fight "a tea of troubles."

A colored military company of Pitte

so great is the opposition on the part

tipathy to the negro is in Pennsylvania,
a State which casts nearly one hundred
thousand majority for the Republicans,
who are continually trying to f iree
the negroes on the whites in the cars,
the theaters, the hotels and the public
schools. We are told that "the colored
troops fought nobly," and in addition
to this the colored man and brether
generally votoa nobly with the Re
publican parly bat whether this will
have any more weight in gaining him
admittance to the ranks of the white
cit'zen soldiery than it has had in gain

to eeen. The colored soldier may be
fully as brave as bis white brother,
may in time become as proficient in
drill, may turn out on dress parade
with fully as much credit to himself,
but granting all this, there are good
grounds for doubting that the mom
bets of the Fennsylania soldiery will
be anxious or willing to accept
him at a comrade iu arms, the
admiring glanc?s of the public
on parado and the pleasures
aud close companionship of camp life.
They may do alt this in spite of our

BEFUSAL OF THE BOSSES TO RE
PEAL THE RULE.
Tbey Hire Their Side or tbe Case
Copy of tbe Obnoxious
Bjfaw.
Tbe tinners are still out, and there
is no prospect of an adjustment ot tbe
difference between them and their
employers, who decline to repeal tbe
obnoxious bylaw.
Mr. Tdomas L. Risk, tbe secretary,
and Mr. George Rubscb, jr., a sou of
tbe president of tbe Boas Tinners Un
ion, ca'led at tbe Api-ial cilice yester
day, and mads a statement of their
side of tbe case, fir.t submitting the
following copy of the object ooable
rule.
Article 11. j employer (hall hire

plica ion for employment to question1
him, and find out his reason lor leav

sirous of employing him, hs shall con

so.
"The rule amounts to nothing more
than an agreement to stick together,"
raid Mr. K sk. "We nevtr l ad any

that time they have been very arbi
trary in their demands and would not
listen to reason. Whenever we roa le
a complaint ws receivod an off band
reply to the effect that the union will
uphold thfm or protrt them. We
fonud ourselves forced to take anybody
and everybody, whether cjinpetint
or not. We submitted to the niue
hour role at ten hours pay, though no
ntlior city in the country, that we have
bean able to hear of, does it, and claim
that we pay the highest wagoa. Lrst

them they would obtain them work
elsewhere. They tried t get a job
this week and Ailed, and w (finally
agreed to put them at work and let a
committee from the Tinners' Union
decide whether they ought to stay or
not. We have all along believed tbat
to be the roaeon of the threatened
strike and were surprised to receive
the following notice yesterday morn
ing: Maunis, September 10, 1880.
Bon Tinners' Union i
Gsntlkmbn At a meeting of the
Tinners' Union, held at their hall this
day, the following resolution was
adopted. It was agreed not to retnrn
to work under the present circum
stances until the clause in your bylaws
requesting us to bave a release card
from our former employer bs stricken
from your bylaws.

"They mads that tbe ostensible rea
son for a strike," Mr. Risk continued,
"but I think it was a foregone conclu
sion that tbey bad to have one any
way. Tbe more they got the more
they wanted. We asked for a confer
ence, or offered to leave it to any in
telligent committee from their own
number, but tbey would not listen to
anything. They tried to wbip one ot
the bosses who wanted to explain the
situation, and are playing things with
a high hand all along the line. Their
talk about being slaves is ataurd. If
they had any more liberty than they
now enjoy we might as well turn over
our books and business to them. We
are in now and we intend to see it
through. There are fifteen boss tin
ners in the city and they all btdong to
tne union, ana will buck to it."
"So far as I am concerned," said Mr.
Rubsch, "I have determined that I
will send for new men if tbey do not
return to wore by Monday morning.
I won't wait on them. We can get all
tne men we want."
The bote tinners are given tbe bme
fit of their statement and the tublic
can judge as to whether or not the
claim Is ; juet that the obnoxious rule
makes the men little better than tbe
slaves of their employers. Certain it
is that the tinners will not submit to
artiole 11, aud that they have tho
symrutny ot every laboring man in

THE MEYER CASE.
A LEGAL VIEW OF TUB LATEST
SENSATION.
The Law or Salt Isefeaee and or
IrraaUtlbla Impulse
Denned. '
"Attorney General Peteis will have
his hands full at the beginning of his
term," remarked a well known jittor.
ney yesterday, "lie won't bave much
trouble about the caee of Bath, who
killed Kelly with a mallet on Front
row the otner day; but the Meyer
case ia rather ticklish, especially on
accouut of the amount oi sentiment
which usually surrounds casts of tbe
kind."
"What do ycu thinJc of tbe Meyer
killing?"
"Insanity" was tho leconic reply.
"Nevertheless, Judge Duhose was
cotrect in his ordf r ti tha Sheriff not
to release him on bail until a fuller
examination into the facts conld be
had. His admission that he laid in
wf it, and tbat he would bave been
willing 10 accept money as the price
of his own and his wife's honor,
deprived him of the main beam
of his support. Under the
cold law homicide is excusable only
in self defense. But a latter day sen
timent has added another t anas of ex
oneration irresistible impulse, such
as tbe feeltDgan honorable, chivalrous
man might nave who suddenly found
his wife in the situation in which
Mejer is said to have found his
spouse. But in this case it is con
clusively shown by his own sta'ement
that he deliberately set. a trap to catch
Duma vant, writing a decoy letter, fol
lowing it and lying in wait for his vic
tim. That dup-ses of tbe plea of
irresistible impulse. He cannot plead
self defense, because he leveled a
pietol at Dunnavant before he was
aware of his presence, and Dunnavant
sprang toward him for the purpose of
defending himself. That he shot him
to Rave his own life will no constitute
a case of self defense. And yet
when it is all a-gued accord
ing to the cold letter of the law
it does seem tbat Meyer's statement
tbat ha merely meant to get proof, to
bring bim to bay and make bim ac
knowledge it, might bs the true the
ory. But he should be held anyway,
as the proof is evident, or the pie
sumption great, that he has committed
a capital otlente. Under our law such
a crime is not bailable."
Ia the meantime, Meyer and his
wife are as loving as two tar.le doves,
and they mean to ba t e together for
hij release. There were uo sew de
velopments yesterday, though the air
was full cf rumors.
The Nashville Union of yesterday
raya: "Tee remains of Mr. W. B.
Dunravaot arrived here la it night.
They were accompanied by his wife,
his brother John and wife. Phil and
Mr. Knox. They were taken to bis
mother', on Sou'.h College street, near
the Howard rcbool. The funeral will
occur at 2 o'clock this afternoon at tbe
Central Baptist Church. Friends of
the deceased cleini tbat at the trial of
bis murderer fdcts will be showed
quite at va itnee with the published .
btttement". Hcs's of old Nashville
friends rf the family will suspend
their judgment until a finality is had
iu the investigation at Memr-hia."
