Tbe Democracy of the Tenth Ten

the Exposition Building yeiterdsy to
select a Democrat to represent them
in tbe Fiftieth Con (frees. Tbe norma
a'lon of James Phelan was practically
decided on Tnwday lattbythersealt
of tbe primary elections in Shelby

nominated Kith even leu fric

bia nomination teems to have largely
made ilaelfrand he goes before tbe
.people without the least flavor of tbe
machine or any sort of odcr tbatcan
possibly offend Democrat?, not pre
determined to be ditsatitfied. Tbe
many utterances of the Aitial for
nearly twelve months attest its high
appreciation of Mr. Phelan. In view of
Its frequent commendation?, it is use
less ti Bay that the Aitial is fjatifle:)
at his nomination and will yi Id bim
a cordial support until the polls
close on the 2d of November. Under
all the circums'ancfs he if, no doubt,
the etroogest man that could have
been nominated. He entered (he can
vass sgiinst. a trained opposition
.veterans in campaigning, and ec
trencbed la every county in the di-
trict, and hai constant'y grown in
public favor until his nomination was
a tirmoatf inclusion. The battle be
his fought aud won, the amazing
s'rerg h he bis developed, show that
be is the man lor the occasion. Tbe
' same magnetism that enthused bis fol-
r lower --the sime energy, courage and
ability that secured bis nomination,
wlll secure bis election. Let the
.young Democracy renew and re
double their, teal, let young and old
Democrats march shoulder to shoulder,
and we will achieve a glori
ous victory. We commence
'the canvau under tbe most
cheering auspices. United and har
monious, having no burdens to carry,
every Democrat Is inspired with zeal
- and hope. Our candidate Is compe
tent snd worthy, but we must make
it known in all the highways and by
ways, and emphasise it at all the vot
ing preoincts in the dls'rlut. Ztch
. Taylor has been making a vigorous
Blill hunt, Is popular with his party,
and It Is only by "a long pull, a strong
pull, a pult all together," that he can
be defeated. Let us mike it a cam
paign oi enthusiasm, fcr there is
everything to Inspire enthusiasm.
Democrats, the contest among our-
. stives is ended; the contest with
the common fos has begun, and
lot us clore ranks tnd march in solid

Intend to do it.
COL, JOM1AH FATTEIION,
Sick and feeble as Col. Patteison
has boeivince Monday night lis, "be
appeared in the convection yettirdAy
to contribute 1.1s ii llnnce to the har
mony of tbe convention. Trie manner
in which be was received shows the
conspicaorH place he occupies in tbe
aflect'ons of the great Democratic
heart. He stated to tbe convention
th it be became a candidate fir Con
grots ntdsr tbe belief that Mr. Phelan
and bimselt differed radically on the
tariff and tbe B'a'r bill ; that when they
met on tbe stump he found, to bis a
tonhhrnent, that thrra wasnotubstan
t;at divcrgsrjci of opinion between
them, and that they were in accord on
all the gr.at imiej row before the
country, lis told the convention that
when h atcertained that there wrs no
tubaUrrMal divergence of opinion be
tween them le had gone to the
ex'ent of consulting friends in nspect
to the propriety of his withdrawal, on
tbe ground that tbe-e was no differ
ence between them.' He urged hit
f rie ids throughout the district to sup
port Mr. Puelan because he was in line
(witH fie piiuriplei of Democracy.
The onree wbL-h Col. Pattercon has
purau d hfs inofo bim many fritnde.
In announcing hnvolf a cindidate be
wai antpa ed solely and outirely by
the bttiiel that Mr. Pnelai approved
the dates', of the Morrison tarifl
hill, favoied'prot-c ion per tt and tbe
Blair biil, which Col. Patterson re
Hards as flagrantly unconstitutional.
Djl, eosoio eshe d'scovered icjuetVe
had 1) undone Mr. Pbelan be die
cuaeei tbe propriety cf withdrawing
with the wiiter hereof and ether ptr
sonal friends, Col. Patterjon's only
object was to vindicate the prlncip'ei
f h;s party. When the flret dn:usion
revelled that be and Mr. Pbelan wore in
c;orJ, he felt n furibjr coccern in
.regard t6 his candic"nry In the con
test upon wkicli we have entered we
predic that no mors brilliant etrvice
jwill be ret dered to Mr. Phela n and tbe
Democratic party than that given by
Col. Pattereon. The nominee is not
only entitled to this support on party
grounds, but because he is a man
whore past life and a promising future
plead in tones ai clear and resonant as
bis own and Col. Patterton's eloquence.
Patterson will support Pbelan with all
his heart, and it is a big one, t o.

The severity of tbe earthquake at
Charleston is leading people to ask
tnx'ously whtre is safety ? The New
Madrid earthquake, tbe continual
sbakingsin California, and cow the
dreadful Charleston catattrophe, erode
uncertainty tv.ry where. As a refuge
agaiost cyclones, cyclone boles are dug
where people inn for refuge when
cyclones threaten. Such retrrats
would give no safety in earthquakes
what will? Some eay a white pebble
with a blue ting laterally turroucd
ing It, when carried about tbe person,
is a sura individual mi a: s of rafety,
but tbe remedy is not popular outside
of the nr gross. A strUs of ham
mocks eupported from stationary hal
ves lies been proprsrd, but none
h.ve been constructed yi t. All that
is considered available at present
is to get out of doorj when a shock 's
coming, end go where to fulling build
irgcan sir ke the citizens. But this
nquir. stint the approach of earlh
qutkes should be known, and to know
th's Eetamomoters, which show the
slightest tremble that a fleets the earth,
will become as common in balls,
churchisand re idenctsas barometers
are. Sieephs will go out o! fashion,
twelve s'ory buildings bo left tenaut
lers, snd one story bouees, construct d
tf materials tbat can btar motion
without falling, will become the rage.
In sales of real eetate a geological cer
tificate as to tbe underlying strata will
be required, and an autborlz d ser'es
of reports of.aeismatic perturbations
frr years paet. New Orleans is elready
looking for an increase in rent, and
the pr.'ce of lots in tbat city, for the
people there say the place can
not bs eartbqnaked for the soil be
neath It is plastic and yielding, and
will not transmit vibrations. CTuie
parts of Kentucky make a similar
cla m for having land that bas an
elattic, yielding yellow clay beneath
it. Atlanta boasts of entire safety
owing to underlying granite, but it is
objected that although granito may
stand shocks without disseverance, tbe
solid mass would eo transmit vibra
tions as to shake and quake down all
the structures upon tbe surface. Snch
discussions are becoming extensive,
and practical geology is likely to be
come a regular profession like medi
cine or law, for no one will think of
investing In land until he knows upon
what ttiata it rests and the liability of
that strata to receive and transmit

One of the horrible things tbat dis
grace the age is tbe frequent occur
rence of lynching. How df cent mem
bers of society people who receive
the command as divine that says
"Thou elialt do no murder" can
reconcile it with their conscience, and
their duty to obey the laws of their
country, is hard to understand. The
victim has no trial, and innocent per
sons have been lynched and proved
a'ter the feaiful act had been dote to
have been guiltless. A West Virginia
dispatch a day or two ago recorded
the lynching of the father of a large
family, atd now it appears thit the
poor creature was insane. But lynch
er! act in hot blood, In an excitement
that robi them of reflection and judg
ment. The incentive to lynching is
our defective legal methods. Trials
nre protracted into weeks; if convic
tion is had tbero are appeals and de
lays, and if jtntlco is at length
done it is eo long after tbe crime
ia committed that tbs punishment
fails to diminish crime in the propor
tion it should do. The English are
not Fccuied of r ml tie severity toward
their criminals, yet they have not the
interminably long trials snd tbe delays
following that injure tbe course cf
justice in this country. What tbe
English can do the American people
can always attain to, If not improve
upon, and we ought not to allow the
Eog'ish to surpass os, where eccrcd
justice snd the welfare of the country
are concerned.. Let our methods ot
dealing logallv with accused criminals
be so altered tbat law may be con
sistent with justice, and crime will
diminieh and lynching will cease.

Warijiroton, September 17. Min
lst r D nt.y, at Pekin, bas .'reported to
tbe ScreUry of S ate two ca-es ot re
fer t outrages perpetrated try ibe
Cbinem uon Americans. Tbe Rsv.
A. A. Fulton and wifa and Miss Mary
Folton, of Maryland, and all of the
American Presbyterian Mission in
Cslcs, ettabl abed a mission hospital
and station at Kwai Ping, about 400
miles touthwest from Canton. When
tLey bad expended a corsiderab'e
sum in putting up building, placards
appeared on tDe walls decaring that
ttie ''fo.elgn devils" must go in thre
dsys and ibelr buildings be destroyed.
The Literati, as rsual, were at
the bottom of the distorbances.
A . crowd gathered re,r the
he Si itel, atd Mr. Fulton set r ut to se
cure tbe protection of the militia. He
whs stoned on bis way snd not per
mitted to return, and no soldiers were
sent to protect tbe m'ssion. On May
6'.h the mob piled straw snd fcgots
agrtaftth building occupied by Mrs.
and Miss Fulton and a little daughter
of the former, and the house was
touted. Then they fought refuge oa
boats, but tbe mob threatened to de
stroy any bout . tbat sbou'd rec ive
them, si d afte-r Bome doley tr.ey
readied the point where Mr. Fulton
bad been compelled to remain. Two
days later they were put on beats arid
coaveyid to Catitoa. The value
of the property destroyed is about
$5500, and Consul Seymour ia press

auouit in damages The second

all the gantlemun connected with the

broke down the gates and threwetones
at the ldy, one of which cut open ber
index finger its entire length, while
f-he wa otherwise injured about tbe
head and a.-ms. Complaint was made
to the r llinials, but the mat er was
treated lightly. This ia a aerious case,
writes Mr. Dctnby, and may be a teat
one. It grew, ai our evil" in China do,

A lUI'SIHS KRNOCRATIO
8rnsde and Fireworks aad I Io
qnence mt tbe Peabods
Euly yesterday afternoon it began to
be whispered about that the friends of
James Phelan wer going to aerenade
him at 8:30 o'clock p.m. at tbe Pea
b:dy Hotel, and tbat the Young
Democracy cf bhelby county would
ava l themselves ol the opportunity to
tendir their spoke man and chosen
representative a rousing reception.
Long before the hour named the
crowd began to gather, and at the sp
rointed time the mats of humanity in
front of the hotel w packed to thick
that H'.reet car travel waa interrupted,
and tbe moving of p'd. str'ans an utter
ia p mobility. I be firing of a coloiral
if rpsdo, with a detona ion like a can
non, was tbe signal lor mus e by
A-nold's bend, and whiln they played
lively airs in their best style the fi ma
meat was illumlra'ed with rockeiB,
and H mitn and other pyroteobn!cs.
A tier tbe band ceased playing
shoots of "Phelan," "Phelan." from
2010 throats, rent tbe air, and when
that gentleman appeared in the win
dow of the Peabrdy, accompanied by
Ucn. J. J. Duffy, and advanced to
i lie edge ot the imlcooy, he was re
ceived with a storm ef etieers and ap
plause that m ght t ave been be ard.at
Chelsea. It w a fully a minute before
tbe en husiaam Bpent its loroe, and
r-ubsided to a deg'ea tbat ma ie it
I o Bible tor Gen. Daffy, wbo intro
duced Mr. Pbelan, to be hoerd. He
said it was hardly necessary to intro
duce Mr. Phe an to a Memphis audi
er ce, hnt to such out of town Demo
crats who were present he dnairi'd to
recommend h'tn as a gallant Demo
crat and a brilliant son of Tennessee,
who was fully capable of speaking for
tiimself and wbo would carry the
party'a banner to v'ctory in the ap
proaching contest. Mr. Phelan said:
Mr. Pbelan thanked the serenades
for this exprBsion of their kindly
good will. He felt tbat the compli
ment was not given him alone, but to
tbe party whose standard bearer be
bad become. As a Democrat he was
proud of tbe princlp'ee, history and
traditions of his party. When Tbomas
Jefferson, the master mind that had
formulated Democracy- as a political
system, flret undertook the task,
his great spirit had wandered over
the face of the earth, it had visited
the homes of all people, the rich and
tbe poor, tbe proud and tbe humble,
and had learned from them tbe les
son of happiness and tbe avenues
which led to it. It bad brooded as a
sitting dove over the lessons learned,
and ti e reeult bad been the principles
of Democracy. Not alone to Ameri
ctne, but to all the world, Democracy
rponed its gates and calltd to
the unhappy, the miserable and
the oppreieed to come over the
sea to a new home of plenty
and contentment. It went to tbe tier
man peasant who dwe't upon tho
banks of the legendary Rhine, to the
poor Hun who lived in the shadow of
theCarpa'.hiaa mountains, to thesbep
herd who tended bia herds on Hie
slopes of tbe Apennines, to the Italian
fisasant wbo fiom the quay of Onna
ookfd out upon the watrra of the
beautiful Mediterranean, and promised
them all happy barves's, happy homes
snd happy hei-rts. Ia tbe content which
bad just cloeed, there may have beeu
bittsrncFK of some kind, but this had
panned away. He waa not one who
wiHhrd to see his friends adopt any
narrow and sellhh rule. He saw in
the Democracy the brod and catholic
sulrjt of laterality, and be could ray io
tbs words of the old hymn :
"I.rl not my ml unknowing hind
I'muuie tor bnlti to turow.
Ami don iWiunminn round tha land
On nil I deem thy f." ,
Mr. Plielsn c'osAl with a p'ea for
a bet er understanding iinoni all the
elemeuts of tbe party, and sniil be be
lieved that bis friends would epare no
exeition to vind cate the choice of the
prty in his nomination.
Mr. l'uelan was fnquently Inter
rupted by applause, and at tbe conclu
sion ot bis remarks retired amid a
repetition of the demonotia'inns of
popular favor tbat bad greeted his ap
pearance. More musio followed, and in answer
to load calls for "Dupuy" that gentle
man appeared and thanked the crowd
for the compliment pa'd him, Hs
said he coruially indorsed Mr. Pne
lan's nomination. He bad been re
quested to make the race againtt Mr.
Phelan, atd for a lile entertained
tbe idea, but after he bad met the
man and rrc-gnizd IU hosety of pu--poe,

all bis deeply intrenct ed popu arty in

bo honect and honorable an ambition
as Mr. Pbean'e. ile bid therefore
declined to make th race, and ad viied
bis friends to pu'l iff their coats snd
work for James Phelan, a i be intended
to do. Mr. Dupuy'a remarks were
well received and ptarlily applauded.
The crowd was not alow in discovering
the genuineness of bis Democracy and
testified their appreciation of him ac
The mxteppaker was Harry Hill,
and li9n h s clarion voice rang out
"Fellow Citiz'ns" tbe crowd scented a
good rpesch and gave him a volley of
