MEMPHIS, TENN., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1SS6.
VOL. XLVI NO. 223
If the Kivghti of labor, as hts
been hioted, shall at (heir forthcom
ing convention at Richmond adopt a
aystem of arbitration, tbey will hive
taken a long stride' toward putting an
end forever ti B'rikea. Arbitration ia
the only rational and sensible method
of settling trade disputes. Merchant
everywhere have found it ao to be.
Frank Hubd, the noted free trade
Democrat of Ohio, was nominated for
Congress yeeterday t,y the Democrats
of the Tenth DUtrict of that Etite,
A man with the courage of his con
victions, he ought to receive the vote
of eviry Democrat, and ba sent back
by an overwhelming majority ti take
the teat in the House of Representa
tives he ahould nevf r have vacated,
Mr. Hard is just the kiad of Demo
crat, that ia needed in Congress.
. "What the colored people of this
country are; the white people have
made them. There is no po-sible
escape from this ftatement cf fact.
Oar excoBfive ignorance and poverty
and perverttd religious opinions and
moral ideas are the logical outgrowth
of the selfleh policy which the whites
of this country have pursued towards
us," Bays the New York Freeman
(negro organ). This is true. It is
therefore all the more the special
and particular duty cf the whits
people, North as well as South, to do
all tbey can to eJura e the Eejra, to
elevate and lift bim up, to make him
better in every way, that be may be
mere useful to himssii and to the
Thb committee called to meet tbis
morning to make arrangements f Jr the
reception of the Democratic candidate
for Governor, who will arrive herd on
Tuesday next, the 6th of October,
ought to have the generous and hearty
support of every Democrat in Shelby
county. Mr. Taylor will here close his
canvass with h's brother, and he
should be made to fde', as much as
numbers and enthusiasm can make
him feel, that bis labors have been
snccefsful and that a crowning victory
awaits him. This is the commercial
metropolis of the State, the center of
the richest portion of the Mississippi
Valey, and on inch an important oc
casion our citizeis shou'd act with a
largeness of heart and a spirit woithy
of them. Let us give "Bob" a rousing
Senator Dan Yoobhib', of Indiana,
sajs he looks for Cleveland's renoml
nation by the Democrats in 1888, but
. that B'aine will not be bis opponent
He cays that Mr. Blaine's failure to
press his libel suit in Indiana has
destroyed his hold on the Republicans
there. "Mark this," said he, "the
Rspublican party, being oat of power,
have too much sagacity to nominate
him rgain. For the interest of the
Democratic party I hope they may.
We will then put tde finishing stroke
to the Republican party with such
effectiveness that you will never hear
of it in power again as long as the
Democratic party continues i's Dr?seot
wise and sagacious policy. The Re
publicans have a sood Hunting chance
in lass w;in a good nominee, Dut no
Thb convention of the Knights of
Labor which meets at Richmond, Va.
on the 4th of October will, we hope,
in the interest of the country at large,
- but especially of the workingmen, re
elect Mr. T. V. Powderly to the presi
dency of the organization which he
has dignified by his conservatism. Ha
is a man cf ability, a s'atesinan,
shrewd and careful guide, who. bv his
conduct dating ths trying times of the
last striae gave evidence of bis woitai-
ness to be the leader and guide of the
workingmen. Mr. Powderly has the
CJimaence ot toe bu iness men, as we
feel sure he bos of his fellow workmen
in all the B ates, and be ought to be
Wa learn from the Lancaster Intelli
gencer, that disgaate by their failure
to secure a place on the ticket for
Stephen P. Oipson, the caudidats
of the -colored people for the Seventh
Legislative District, they held a mass
meeting in Philadelphia Friday night
and passed resolutions bitterly de
nouncing the Republican party; si
ting forth in language that shows by
its vigor that it is the flame of a just
wrath long controlled, that for
faithful services they have re
eived contempt. As the Intelligencer
says: "The failure of the Republican
party to retniorce a quarter of a cen
tury of talk about toe rights of the
-colered man to representation, by pro
viding bim witn an occasional sample
( the article, is at last beginning to
have its na-tnral effect."
Thb home rulers of Ireland have at
last determined npon a coarse that
should have been pursued by Irish
leaders many years go. They bave
determined to go ont among the En
glish people and tell them the story
of Ireland's wrongs and acquaint them
with the nature of Ireland's demands.
They are going to try and make con
verts of them to home rule, to per
suade them that in justice and fair
ness the Irish people should be per
mitted to govern themselves through
a Parliament of their own, sitting in
the old hou'e yet standing in College
lreen, Dublin. This is a ssnBible and
great work. It is a'most a herculean
task to attempt to undo what the Irish
toriea have done in England through
centuries, to remove the impression
of hate, the depth and strength of
which mar easily bs fathomed by the
speeches of Churchill and Salisbury.
But the constant drnpping of water
will wear away a stone, and so the
atory so pathetic may sof en the great
public teart of England and bring it
to demand that English repressnta
ties shall vote to grant Irishmen the
(ame rights and liberties as English
men enjoy. It is a noble task, an
almoEt heroic one, that these Irieh
leaders have undertaken, and the
Jirogress they mare in it will be eager
y watched by the civileeiT world,
which outnide of England ia a unit for
Ireland's freedom. .

miseiocer Dr. Matthew Chalmers and
a Sheriff's jury heard the testimony in
regard to the mental condi ion of Bart
ley Campb?ll, the playright, who is
nowconfinedin Ploomingdale Asylum.
Dr. Chrlts F. N cho's, the superin
tendent ot the Bloouiingdale Asylum,
testified tbat Mr. Campbell was admit
ted to the asylum as a patient May
17th. In his opinion tbe pa ient was
incurable. His specific complaint
was general psres's. It was a typical
cas?, and manifested itself in a paraly
sis of the vital organs and
lower limbs. Mr. Oampbsll was
able to talk so as to bs understood
and could walk with assistance. His
d gestion was- good and appetite nor
ma'. His weight was the same as
when admi ted to the asylum. Mr.
Campbell was subject to the delusions
of tbe most common kind. "His fan
cies," continued the doctor, "varv
greatly. This afttrcoon I saw him
and asked him how his head was. To
this he tepled tbat bis head was excel
lent, that he should live forever and
had lived from the foundation of the
wono. inis sugges eu inn name
of Adam, and be branched off on tbe
subject of the ce'ebrated members
of the Adams family ia this country,
Mr. Campbell believed that he re
ceived specific communications from
Shakespeare, Alexander, Bismarck
and King Humbert. He imagined
fiat he freanentlv converged with
Queen Victoria, and tbat he had vis
ited heaven and saw grest men there
Ones be fancied lhat Oliver Cromwell
was in his stomach and went around
holding it up withb ith hands on ac
count of the snpposed load."
the doctor concluded by saying that
Mr. Campbell would never again be
able to attend to bus'ne:S or to reco;
er bis ssnses.

imr ortant qurstions to be considered
will be a change in the basis of rev
mentation. Toe convention at Rich
mond will be attended by possibly 500
delegit9P, who will represent 700,0ii0
members of tbe order. Said he: An
effort will be mado to establish a basis
so as to prevent the meeting of such
an unwieldy mars as will bs present
mis year. At tire sent me Dasts oi repre
sentation is one to iuuu mi moers or a
major fraction. Tbe districts should bi
represented in tbe ratio of one to 3000
members, roe members would then
be as well represented and tbe busi
ness could be better and more rapidly
transacted man oy tne present system.
Another important question that will
receive more fvor than at any previ
ous convention will be the necessity
of organizing by States. At present
the district and local assemblies
throughout the country throw an im

nf the general Bflcretarv and treaanrer.
Tbat could all be done by giving the
master woriman oi eecn Htate en

member of the General Executive
Board. That or something cloaelv
similar will be adopted at the conven
