THE Mil DEBATE.
P II ELAN 1SD PATTERSON AT THE
The Trowd Completely Captured by
the Former-Both Make Tell
A cold, drizzling rain, muddy streets
and! sv leaking roof did not prevent
big crowd from a'tending the joint
debate at the Exposition Bniiding
last night between Mr. James Pbelan
and Col. Josiab Patterson, rival can
didates for the Democratic nomination
for Congress. Seats had been pro
vided for 1500 people near the plat
form and tbey were all taken, a good
many standing io the hall or sitting
about the stage. It was a the roughly
representative gathering and tbe deep
est interest was manifested in the
argument from the opening to the
Col. Patteraosa'a Remarks.
Col. Jo?iah Patterson was the fl-et
to speak, and was heartily welcomed
when he took the stand. He npnke
folly an hour and a half, and was fre
quently iateriup'ed by applause. Tbe
greater portion of his time was taken
up with a discussion of the tariff, of
the Blair bill, and with a denial that
he was a henchman of Saca'or
Harris. He called a'tention to the
daily reports of ttrikes all over
the country under a pio'ective
tariff and asked if any man tver saw
or heard of a tramp before the war.
The tramp he declared ti be a men
who had worked for protected capital
ut t l more than tbe coact'y wattsd
had been prod uc id and thtn he had
been cast off to starve. From
1850 to 1800 tbe tariff wai
loweBt. Ttventy-three and a lulf
per ceut. of the earmngs of t' e
country went to bbor, and from 1870
to 1880 only 17. For thirty veaw
prior to 1800 wages incteated 50 per
cent, and the cost of living 12, and
for the next twenty years wages io
creised bat 24 per cen, while the
price of living advanced 14 J per cen .
II said he favored equal laws a d
equal rights, a platform on which the
great masses of to.e people could stand,
bat on which thete was no room for
the protective classes. Prctection
here, by the aid of the corrupt lobby,
benefl ed the few, and not the toiling
millions. He wanted to know ho w the
foundries could be benefited by pay.ng
42 per cent, on raw material, and
bow the man who labored there
cou'd be benefited, and ' how
could the farmer be benefited who
bought the goods they manufactured.
Take tbe painter as he wends his way
along tbe sidewalk with his bncktt,
his brushes snd his ladder. How
could be bs benefited by paying 35 per
cent on raw material?
Col. Patterson declared be was op
posed to protection, bnt was in favor
cf deriving only such a revenue by
the imposition of custom dnties as
would pay the expenses of the govern
ment economically administered.
When that is done the government
has accomplished its purpose. I do
not mean that we would wholly wipe
out the tax cn woo), iton, etc.
The Avalanche, a newspsper pub
lished in this city, hai been the aoolo-
?;itt for protection evt-r since Mr. Poe
an owned it. It is in favorof levying
"euch a (iu'y as would foster the man
ufacturing inieretisof Ihe country."
This is delusive language. Tne art j. is
ment of the tariff is done by lobbyists.
Each wauta the tariff fixed sots to
prottcthimin thepirtiiu ar brant h
nf tr. d a in which he is eng ip,ed. They
have gone on and rn until w 1 ay
the present protective ter ff which
haDps like a nightmare over the coun
try. "Mr. Phelan says he is not repons'
blt) for the u te ances of the Avalai.clic.
When the t rue comes for all m-n io
account for the deeds done in lue flesh
he will bo held accountable for the
u'terances of his own newspaper
What would j ou think cf a Rabbi who
owned a Methodist newspaper, or a
saloon keeper who owned a PoV.ibi
t on journal? Iflbadab rJ and be
did tiot tint to suit ran I would wiing
his neck. Mr. Fhelan booms p otev
tion with his money, and atks votes
with another voice.
As to the Blair bil', I must pity I
have not ciught on to Mr. Fhelan's
idea of that measure. He ikclinisto
follow lis apr. An old darky
preacher whom I heard one day tola
his conirregatiou tbat tha way to
heaven was br ad and narrow arid
that to hell cto ked and straight.
Whereupon one of tha bruhera r?
mtk:d that he gueFeed he'd take to
the hushes. Tha' is where Mr Phe
lan is driven. I do not believe this
government bin tbe light to tax this
people f r the purposes o! edu
cation Th etaternut that it is a
means of gett:ng rid of the surplut in
the Treasury is a flimsy excuse to im-
fiose a tax for edujat'oa on the njawea
nstead of tbe organized capitalist.
I am oppo'ed to anything nnder
cover of which tbe na f inal govern
ment may put its hand inti onr local
self government, which is tbe great' st
blessing tf this country. I had rather
live under bad local laws than good
ones made by tbe central government.
Ire'and does not s'op to think about
h laws; she wants her freedom.
I do not belot g to any I Lh so
ciety and have not a drop of Irish
blood in my veins. I am every inch
an Aniericm, but if I were in Coo
grew I would not Leaita'e to declare
my c mviction that this country is
powerful enough to extend a coid'nl
support to the downtrodden people of
ihe Kmprald Isle.
Tne European ida is that blessings
comedown from thegeneial govern
ment like manna from Heaven. Hare
we look on tbe government mtrAy as
an aencv aid re!y on tur own man
hood toearve onr way through )iU.
Tbe Blair bill looks tome like the
Freedman's Bureau just after the war,
when the colored people expected t j
bave government gold rained down
npontbem. GWe me JtfTjison'a idea,
that tbe national government Bhe.li
simply protect the live, libeity
and property of individuals, leaving
the r st to the township, the county
andtheSta'e. I am in favor of tbe
State giving the best opportunities for
general education, and I would advo
cate the setting apart of the public d v
main for general educational purposes.
Mr. Phelan srys 1 am tbe candidate
of Senator Harris. If he means it in
the sense that be favors my candidacy
i,e is correct, bat if he thinks I am
the henchman of Senator Harris or
any othar man be is very sadly
miUken in his man. I have an in
d v dua'ity, ir conscience and an intel
ligence f my own, that belongs to me
aud is swayed by no man. It is un
true that in thin matter I am p'ayirif
a role. The Avalanche tried to DUt me
in the a'titude of a dark horse and
now iti owner seeks to put
jne ill ao entirely muereor.
attitude. It H nntrue that I knew cf
the withdrawal of Mr. J. M. Harris.
I did net know anything about it un
til I siw it in the papars. He never
said a word to me about with
drawal, and Senator Harris nev
er in bis life requested me to rnn.
Before he returned many of my
friends solicited me to tun for Congress-.
After the withdrawal of Mr.
J. M. Harris more friends rame to me,
but I still declined. Mr. Mantoa cams
here, drew out of tbe race and insisted
that in bis belief my cand idf cy wis for
tbe good of the patty. At last I con
sented. No man has been oftener refuted
than I have when appointments were
being made in this part of the State.
I often strained my relations with
Senator Harris in tbe advocacy of my
friends who were defeated. Bat on
tbe momentoui qoestiors of the day
are together, and it is therefore
na'ural that he prefers me
to ore who enleruinB views
opposed to bis. Yon might at well
sar I am the candidate of anyone if
500 distinguished Democrats of Tet
nessse who believe wi'h Senator liar
ris as to declare tb.it I am his candt
date. Senator Harris has the right to
exercise his choice in such matters.
He is taking no part in the canvssr,
and berause I agtee with him shall it
be said that I am here simply is bis
mouth piece? I have nothing to do
with his likes or dislike;, and tome
of his friends are my enemies and my
enemies his iriends. 1 he that my
fellow citi7.it 8 will not believo me to
be the henchman of any man living.
Mr. Phelan says I am the candidate of
tbe politicians. He wanta you to be
lisve I am a ring man. Here is tha
cof y of a let er in which 1 askei him
to agree to submit our claims to the
people at a ptimary election If I
had been a in K man I would luve
listened to nothing but a contention.
If I am cboson to bear your standard
in this contest, I will do my duty to
the bes' of my ability, but olriu'd ycu
choose Mr. Phelan. no mat will stand
by him more closely than I.
I am no time server; what I have
sa'd to you comet of conviction. I
have spoken frankly. I have not
t.immed or doded. Ik.ih Demc

I will bs one until I die.
With thank i to his audience, Col.

and yet he has exhausted bis cata
logue of invdeives to show hi
contempt for that platform. He
has d clared againtt inciden at
protcciion. He has refused to stand
on the Cblc.'g) pla form, a pisiform
that Grover Cleveland says we must
all stand on, and prefers to have one
of his own. Within the limits
of tariff for revenue a cer
tain amount of pro ectioo is
bound to appear I am opposed to the
Republican tariff, and think it might
be adjusted, and I would be in favor
of adj us ing it so ss to protect the in
dustries the tonntryand of the
South especially. If CjI. Patterson
were warring against the editor of the
Avalanclte bis speeches miitbt bave
some weight with you,
Tbe question is not one meiely of
free Uaue or protection, but whe her
tbe South shall have some of the ben
efits which the Norih tixs been enjoy
ing for so long, Sbou'd I go to Con
gress it will be with no abstract ideas,
out it sball be to dis:u?n tha details of
tbe;e important questions, not to en
gage in abstract, pbilrsophicil snd
oratorical display, aud ah ve all things
to look clcsely alter tLe affairs of my
- Col. Patterson cannot travel oat of a
s'raight line. If he had been among
thote who realized the necessity fur
traversing the desert and throwing a
railroad over the mountains, be would
bave insisted on having claws on the
locomotive to pull it sttaight over, in
stead of following the paths by wnich
na nre makes the pa'ssge easy. His
ideas are theoretical aud not prac
tical, and while he was pound
ing away about the butrrge
of the taiiff and tbo Blair bill
some men would bs busy in the com
mittees eecnrng lfgBlation for trie
real benefit vl tueir people. You do
not want a man who plays bu; one
tune and cannot adapt himself to tj
needs of the hour.
I tell yon again that bis candidacy
represents an itca not for tbe good of
the Linmocratic pa'ty. As lor the
Avalanche, it staudB i h nineteen oi
tbe leading Democrats of the country
and squarely on the Chicago
platform and takrs the views of no
noun, no matter how grat be may be.
I do not utter one ord oi repnacb
againbt thofe who tuppott Col. KtKr
s?n, or ygainn him whom we all know
as a genial, cult'va'ed and intelligent
man and a gocd citizen.
Coi. Pattxrton was first known by a
card he wr. te in ti e Avalanche, h is
the privilege of every man who wants
a public ollice to write a c ird. I have
gone from house to bouee and bave
canvaeed them and they bave can
vassed me, and I leave it to the people
of this district tossy whether there nas
ever been a great popular demand for
his candidacy. I bave not heard the
people cf any of the three counties I
bave vieitrdsay that they called on him
But since he bis b-en dragged be foe
you I bope, if you think it to jonr in
terest to do so, that you will nominate
bim and tben I will help elect him.
Col. Patterson was a member of tbe
lower bouse of the Legislature
in 1882, and in the con
vention before which his came
was placed ballot after ballot was
taken to decide between bim and a
beatdlees boy, who finally withdrew
and gave him tbe field. A man mutt
have made some great record to cr-ate
a popular demand for him. Heiutr -dured
twenty-eight bUls and
five were coiued into lass
One of tbem as a salvage b'll,
another to give thel'il ed States ju
lisdiction over custom hone bluff,
and thete were three others about
practices in the courts. He dratted a
bill and gave it to Mr. Man
son to regulate railroads. It wes
parsed, and if it had been more
adroitly drawn Tennessee would
today hive been less than te'yeurB
belaud all o'her S'ates in the Tnion.
Not satisfied with tbe mushing defeat
of bis measure at the polls he went u;
to the convention tbe other tiav suit
bad a plank taken out of the platf nm,
which le't the Sla'e entirely at the
mercy of the railroads.
I wanted him to make a cinvae
because 1 want' d him to be scrutinized
as I have bteo for tl ree tnon'i B. And

Judge Kile '. He held that there
were no i qubies in the b'l1, and dis
missed it, but decided that neither

the committee recently awarded the
contract for building two iron bridges
over Welt liver, were entitled to it,
and tbat the committeo mtrt rep rt

acted under an o tier t f court which
gave them power to advertise for and
receive bit's aud to act upon tbem, a
precedent which wss eetnbliHhed ih r

1 si n numerously followed, in tli lie

when any public wrrk is necessary t ih
court st all bo pttiticnd. A com
mit ee ehall then lis appointed
to look into tbe matter and report to
the next t-rm of the court, whi- h i ctt
