MERRILL SAYS OF JAXES
f II ELAN,
The Democratic Candidate for Con
gress In This Diatrlct-A Man
Of and For tho People.
Col. Merrill's lttUr in tbo Courier
Journal of Wfdneid.y: His (James
rneiaa's) lamuy nave lor many years
been leaders of Ddtnncracy. The
earliest anc-wtnr in tbe Uni tea States
was a Op'. John Phelan, who partici
pated in the ba tie of icegar Uiil aod
wai di Wen out of Ireland at the point
of the bsy ontt. A lint al dt acecdant and
nces'or of bis was a brother of Jatues
Phelan, B shcp ol Oswy, which was
iceeanaom oi lnotcai Hatler, a dis-
UDgnthtd soldier committed to the
tower by Cromwell f jr fighting in the
rebellion. The father cf the nominee
was James Pnelan, Confederate Mens-
tor irom aiiesistlppi, whose trotter,
Jonn u. rneiau, was Attorney gener
al of Alabama, Speaker of tbe Iloute
of K-) reaootati vea and Supreme
Judge of the 8tate. Oce of Judge
msiaii's sons, iv.iu 1'helan. was re
cently Alabama's Secretsry of
btate. The family, though lash, have
a i men oi ncoccn b ood tiirouatt
tbe pie9er.t Jim Phelan's crnd
mother the lonrce from which comes
their striking bulldog tenacity of pur
pose. It is a bnppy comhiuntion tbe
warm, rica l BUblool wtnb impels
oue u int Utidnte ol D 8 Irienua aud
hia honor, aod just enough ot tbe
biotch to mate dim s it-k. On hU
mo'te.'a title he U rlttsd t) tbe
Mootef, of A nbaina, one of the lead'
ing fiimLies of theboiith. Au aunt iB
tbu wile of Gov. O'Neal, tow tie
Governor of Alabama If there is
any;hing in blocd and time is much
in blood, though nothing in eaiDtv
tit'es-Jim Phelan is of tLe bts!. And
yet
HE IS A BEOULAR PLEBEIAN
one of the most pronounced in the
country wbat is generally known as
"a people's map." Us whs bcra that
way, aud comes honestly by it through
heredity. He is one of tbe kind
whom, from boyhood, everybody re
ferred to as "ihe Judge," and wai
called "o'd Jim" before tie was ten
ydvrs of ajre. His pet feet bimplkity of
obaracter and lack of aQVct tion are
the qualities wbich attach hi friends
to' his penonal foituces. To see him
walkaloDg the street, the "pro" of
bis wool hat "stt diggin' upward" (cot
turned up) at an angle of about for.y
degrees, one would take him for a
young farmer who hed iuet driven a
load of corn to town and was hunting
a purchaser. Tall, atuular, and fur
thest removed from the dude, be wears
his clotbea as if other hands than his
own hsd adjusted tbe watdiobe.
Toe Appeal says "he comes dan
gerously near tbe borders of
genius," and I imagine he was more
urprisid than anyone else to
hear it. W. D. Hoael's says there is
no such thing as geniup, but I prefer
the only sersible definition of that
quality, to-wit: That genius is energy.
In this view be is a genius. He is a
thorough business man, a man cf af
fairs, successful aud eminentl uracil-
ca', as his canvass for Congress has es-
. LI .1 l fill , , I . . .
ttui stioa, .us biuiuv icruirrfi, Oi llie
district, having heard of him as a
graduate at home, and afterwaidtf the
great German Umveisty of Leipsic,
when meeting face to fac at first con-
8!d red him a ptradoz "aspiiitanti-
tne icaiiy mixu ' la uerraanv ne
took tbe degree of Doctor of Philoso
phy tbe vcungect foreigner who
ever took a degtee at Lsips c. Aod
yst he hid never "bet-n to Yur-up."
He timply went to Europe a South
erner and came back an American
one of the bast educated in the Stats.
He is a hard and laborious student and
is preparing tbe history cf Tennessee
for the Commonwealth aeries now
being published by Houghton,
Mi til in & Co. He will an to
CoDgrtsf, not according to what
is (or as feveral vears ago) Mr.
Watteison'a ideal of a genius of the
present sb e, to wit: a bellerverfeller
in high heel boots, soike tail coat and
stovepipe hat, but as a heavy weight
champion. As a popular hero aod
ideal ce will attract at once more than
the recognition usually accorded most
new memDers. as a worker in com
mittee, I predict that he willttPD to
toe front at a bound-a plain, blunt
man, who loves his friends, and tbe
kind that his friends delight to honor.
His qualities as a s a'.esman must ba
yet ttsted, though he has accomplished
enough to give an earnest of ths
future. II s faculty of remembering
names Is remarkable. A prominent
Fayet:e politic an says he knew the
name of amojt every man in that
county. The tame chiracterittici ttiat
won the workingmen of the city won
tbe hearts of the country people.
Some cf tbem bad remarked that cs a
rulethiy
"HAD SO U8S r IB TH08B CITY FILLOWS,"
but aber ageing bim they said Jim
Pb elan was more like a firmer than
any man in Memphis His friends
claim that he made no single mistake
during tne canvass, though several
times he went contrary to their ad
vice. Toey taid he was dating too
much, bot the result justified tbe au
dacity. His methods are peculiarly
like guetrilla warfare. His attacks
have been surprises, and so far irre-
s stinlc. As an organizir butrei-ulte
epeak for themselves. As a n an be is
iflablosnd pleasant, lond cf banter
ing tit f i lendi, with whom he is an
id.l. Onn night in a calooD, in a crowd
of workingmen who were bsiettirg
him with Joke and jett,,a jrreat. Hi
iolly I'ithmau git off on him an anec '
dote that brought down tbe'ceillngV
rno an s repiy was tT'liana mm one
on the eat" in the u'most good humor.
and with manner aod urimire that
redoubled tbe hilarity. He has a neck
among friends of pul ing th-ir b- arj,
or staljDin tbem with the thumb, or
slftpp ng them on the shoulder in a
familiar wav wbich does not bteed
conttmpt, for he knows everybody,
and wito everybody he is iilin
Jim." I hold that one mU't have a
kiodly ratute to win the po, u'ar
heart. No one can, for snylcng hof
time, sustain the arts of a df mag gue.
He will be off h'a guard her
make a mistake there will fail in a
few months and fall.
Jim Poelan, now about 9 years of
age, has groan up ub tbe young
men of Memphis, and they all believe
in him. Though recognized as tbe
young men's candidate, be is equally
popular with most of the oldettaud
most influential merchants, busice s
and professional meo in the city. At
first it was claimed that bis competitor
would command tbe support ol what
is known here as Front K w. But
Front Bow knew itielf better.f. r "the
old boye" stuck to him ss eamwtly
atd worked as ardently for him as
any oi the younger element. He
atiikstohis friends with atimiable
enrcity, and very properly nofcti
of them the same ucselfljh fidelity
and devotion In return.
MCASURIO BT BE9ULTS.
Judged by iti froita, Mr. Pbslin
APPEAL FRIDAY,
may claim that his joint difcuis'on
wnn Uol. Patterson wa as great a tri
nmph as any msn, yenrg nr old, in
any Mate ever acnieved. in fret, 1
rarall tne History ol tbe stump from
Mains to Texas, and find nothing any
where to match it. Consider a young
man til tea ageici tucu a man as Col.
Patterson ; considrr ths odd against
him on ata'ting ou and wbere have
we hid anything like it ? lie nils
ths utmoet out of every public
ana pereonai leeue mat ws
spiung during tve cicrass. Waim
hearted nd impulsive, his voice in
conversation is t gentle and melodi
ous is a womtn's a voice that melts
and sinks deep don mtithe heart
of tbe listener, wboss friendship he
would conciliate. Asa public deb .tor
it is clear snd diiticct, needing only a
email measure mors i f cu t vat'oo, or,
better still, the school of practical rx
I eritnee, to give at all times, ss it gen
erally bas, the proper tone and mcdu
lation. When stirred up to respond
to any reflection on Lis ptiva e cr par
tisan, consistency, tbe tone adopts a
leady sympathy, tbe sound seming an
echo of ths sens, and eye and vuce
and gesture set in unisn together.
It is then hs clinche his flits, drops
each partially itta ths month of its
rorresponding pentaloons pocket, and
punctuates his sharpvet points by
withdrawing them alternately with
the foiefinger itickirg oat stiaight aod
etifl' and thrust forward at the audi
ence as one should do in tbe set oil
hr.ng who coin nanus, and ore at a
time, a couple of pUtol irtj the
crowd con'ronung hiui. It is in Inci
dental and mtchanical g-eticu-'ation,
and entirely unetuditd
(if, iiu'eed, he has ever thought
cf it) and very exortaeive when an.
compaoied by the ti e atou-ieii In the
dark gray eyes tlasbing from beneath
tbe beetlirg brows. Ooe marked
fea'ure of tie oratory is the unmis
tikable caodcr the manner evin ir.g
the most thorough conviction the
ucafiected earnetnees r f Ihe speaker.
To make others earnest, one mut
hhuselt bs terribly in earnest. At
times', when fi'Bt rising t) ipeak,
Phelan is stricken with "buck
ague," but be gets better es
he goes along, the temporary difli.
dence rather adding to than de
tracting from bis utterances. In pub
lic or private, on the stump or on the
i treet, on the stage cr in ths study, he
is bold as a lion i h respect to bis
conclusions or ths expreesicn of them.
There is nobody who seems, looks or
acts less like ths bulldozer, yet the
devil hia self oouldn t bnl doze him.
His qualities as a leader, the reader
mayiealize from what is known tf
Jim Phelan already, are mat ktd by a
sound, evenly balanced judgment, fer
tility of resource and quiukneta and
clearness ef decls oj.
Three or four vats sco Mr. Phelan
was mar'ied to M bs Mary Early, of
Lynchbuig. Vs., a relative of Gen.
Jubal Early, and I may add, by the
way, teat nil rourtsnip was, , in a
measure, a loreraat ol ihe political
campaign just ended.
iiy nature, instinct, trsining, study.
habits of thought and associa ion, he
is a thorough Democrat -a pait'sm
Democrat, if you pleas.
