MEMPHIS, TENX., THURSDAY, OCTOHEll 7, ISS(..
VOL. XLVI NO. 234
W Bppeal to the Taxing Dhtrict
Council, which meets today, to make
some provision for having our streets
cleaned. They are filthy beyond ex
pression, and the sidewalks are an
abomination, especially to women.
The cost of two or three street sweep
ing machines is not very great, not
beyond tbe reach of the sani
tary fund of ths District treasury.
Under proper management they could
be nsed every night to sweep the
principal business street! at leas", and
greatly add to tbe couifjit of pedes
trians and to the relief cf .tare keep
ers, who have their stocks mote or lees
injured by clouds of dust, which
cannot be entirely escaped by sprin
kling. Above all things it would tend
to relieve the people from tbe doses of
powdered horse manure tinctured
with one acid, which find their way
to almost every breakfast and dinner
"Ook Bob," before he left the Pea
body Hotel yistsrday for Ripley, re
ceived the congratulations of the lead
ing Democrats of the city, who were
very much taken with hint, i a deed,
completely captured. He hes made
an indelib!e impression here as he has
wherever he has spoken, and the
opinion was freely ventured that
he Is i today the strongest
man ' for the ' eoon-ti-be va
cant United States Senator-ship. It
is true of politicians, as of other per
sons, that, as Burns said, "Ihe best
laid plans of mica and men af; Rang
aglee.". Bob was nominated for Gov
ernor in order to get him out of the
way as a candidate for the Senate, but
his close and popular canvass has
forced him upon .the attention of the
people as the ablest and most
available of all our Democratic leader)
for that pine?. He his not himself
said a wcrd lookiog to that end, bat
the people h&ve quietly determined to
make him their candidate. He is a
youug and progressive Democrat, and
ia not a too, too strict constructionist.
In another part cf this issue of the
ArritAi, we print the letter of Preti
dent Jones, of the Memphis Gaslight
Company, to President Haiden cf the
Taking District. In view of tbe urgen
cy and eagerness with which the gas
company entered into the contract
thus eo summar.ly abrogated by the
stockholders, there is room . for
astonishment 03 the part of our
citizens. Mr. Jones is too careful a
business man to assume an authoiity
he did not have, aud he is too prcud
a man to take upon himself an obliga
tion that is not jnstifled by the
powers vested in him. We are, there
fore, constrained to believe that the
stockholders the Memphis Gaslight
Company are playing a game of fa6t
and looce with the people ot Memphis
which ought to ba put a stop to at
once by the Taxing District contract
ing and paying for the gas it uses and
leaving the field of light open to the
freest competition. The District gov--eminent
had no legal right to enter
into tbe contract with the gas com
pany and make itself a part to a mo
nopoly, and now that it is abrogated
by the stockholder the Appbal hopes
there will not be any attempt t re
vive it in any Bhape. Tbe city is able
to pay for its gas and it ought to pay.
The missionaries cent out to the
heathen by the American Board of
Missions find themselves in "a fit"
when the benight-d to- whom they
preach ask them whit has becom9 of
their ancestors who did not so much
as know Christ, aud they have to
answer that they are all burcirg up
in hell. The heat hop, like other peo
ple, don't like hell, and they cannot
be brought to believe in a religion
that teaches what to them is more
barbarous than the habit ones preval
ent among themselves of roasting and
eating missionaries, especially fat ones.
Sos.rious a question of faith, retard
ing as it does the increase of members
in the church, is ti be taken up in
discussion by the Congregational
Union at D.g Moines, Iowa, with a
view to help the missionaries in the
dilemma. To put it plainly, hell will
have to be abolished or the heathen
will continue to live and die in their
nakedness of soul as well as body.
They won't have hell.
Though lata in the day we repro
duce from the Muaimppi Valley Medi
cal Monthly, of September, an editorial
article upon the condition of the City
Hospital, that unless our Taxing Dis
trict authorities hides are
thicker than that of the rhi
noceros, must go fir to effect
ing a much needed reform.
Communities are largely judged nowa
days by the condition of their ele
mosynary institutions, by their pro
vision for the helpless poor, for tbe
deaf and dumL, the blind and for the
eick. For these nnforlunates Shelby
county has done much, but not all
that she should. Yet she is far
ahead of tbe city . which has
always looked upon the hospital ai a
burden to be begrudgingly borne.
What our medical contemporary cays
is, we arejaehemed 1 1 say, true, and
we are only surprised that the
Medical Faculty in a body
has not long since presented tbe
tumble-down concirn to the Grand
jury as the disgrace it is. And, by the
way, it is a good time again to com
mend the Hospital to the attention of
the good Christian women who ara
anxious for humanitarian wark, and
to urge upon them to co-operats with
the doctors in effecting the needed reform,

A Republican Prohibition Conven
tion. ISPKCIAL TO THI AFFIAL.I
Nashville, Tknn , October 6. The
Republican County Convention tul-y
was well attended, but full of the
usual disorder. John J. LMtleton,
who is a f renounced Prohibitionist,
preaded. Whisky men had secure 1 a
number of proxies frrm country die
trie's, but Lit' le ton's influence ex
cluded all pre xies. The Ccmmi'.t e
on Resolutions reported brief resolu
tions indorsing the National and State
plutfoims, the report being signed
by .even of nine members. Two of
the ccmruittae reported a strong sub
mission resolution. The majority re
port was adopted. Gen. George
Mar ey was nominated joini Senator,
James Trimble Senator, aud Ex-Marshal
G. N. Tillman, H. A. Haes ack,
George Fletcher, W. F. Harrington
and D. R. W. A. lladley (colored)
for Representatives. Harrington is a
labor candidate lor Seuator, and whs

nominee. It is ttroDglv talked
that Maury, who is a friend ot tbe
whisky mm, was nominated to beat
Alim', lntnbie to be beatsn by KJowey,
Harrington being taken our, of the

with Rapublican leaders is sldo

A Democratic Candidate for the
Nashville Banntr: Col. J. J. Turner,
of Gallatin, who has announcsd him
self a candidate .for Congrers in tbe
Fourth District, made a speech in
Lebanon yesterday, in which he took
a 6trong and pout ve position in ad
vocacy of the Blair durational bill.
Aside from any considerations of the
merits of ths educational question, it
is refreshing to find a prominent
Democrat who bas the boldness and
tbe courage af bis convictions to take
a etmd in favor of a measure which is
oppestd in a chorus by the politicians
who Lave become conspicuous by
their candidacy for effics, aud who
have so rapidly and unresistingly
fallen into tee rut cut out by Senator
Harris. The machine organs and can
didatorial chorus have ra sed a geat
hulla-balloo about the "unconttitu
tiona'ity" cf the Blair bill, ai d are
now vociferously denouncing it as a
"Republican trie'-" and a dire and
dark deeign to wipe out the Statts
and change cur form ot government,
and all that eort of thing. Of ecu Si
tbe machiue will now tusp.ct Col.
Turner's Democracy, notwithstanding
tbe feet that nineteen of the ablest
voted for the Blair bill and only six
voted against i'. II we srs to accept
the arguments presented ia Tennf.ea
asainst the B'ar bill by the Candida
tnrial chorus, the nineteen D.mo.rakc
Senators who voted for the measure
mutt be idiots or,, fools, or depp dytd
and designing Republicans in iif guise.
And yet, it may be expected bv those
who are Dot thoroughly prejudiced
and who are not dazed byttie con
tinuous buzz of the office bee, that
possibly such men ns Garland o'
Arkansas, Latuxr of Miesisrippi,
Hampton of South Carolina, Jackson
of Tennessee, and other men like
them of national r.putat'oa who sup
port the Blair bill urn not altoethr
igncramusas, nor dark and d-sigoful
Repub'icans in rli.gui.e. It might
indeed be possibly suspected that
these men are Democrats quite as in
telligent and quite as competent to
investigate tbe constitutional bearings
of tbe question of Federal aid as are
the sble Marks, tbe able House, tbe
able William, and the able candidates
for Congress who are losing sleep over
the terrible thought of the wiping out
of Btats lines and the establishment
of a centralized oligarchy in this once
fair aud happy republic 1

LITTLE ROCK, ARK.
Miner and Employe Arbitrate
Isr-IOUL TO TBI APPIAL.I
Little Rock, Abk., October 6. The
free miners atjL'oyd's and 8tilweU'a
mines at Coal Hill struck Friday last
for a raise of 10 cents per ton, since
which time the miners have been idle.
Yesterday the miners held a meeting
at which it was agreed to accept Mr.
Lloyd's proposition and they returned
to work today at the pnes herd . fore
paid them. The proposition of Mr.
Lloyd wap, to have a j int committee
of employers and employes, to whom
would be left all matters in contro
versy, the committee to make a report
by November 1st, all parties agreeing
to abide by the decision of the com
mittee, with the exception of compet
ing; the engineers and firemen to
leave the engines at Stilwell's
mines. The strikers have conducted
tbe operations quietly and orderiv. It
is thought tbe miners will gain at least
snia'l increase on the price now
paid for mining coal, and that further
trouble will be permanently averted.
Trouble between, the free and con
vict labor now employed in tbe differ
ent mines here hat caused frequent
appeals to the State for aid, and if an
amicable arrangement can be reached
now the trouble will bo at an end un
til the meeting of the Legislature in
January, when an effort is to be made
to have the convie'e removed from the
mines and the labor now performed
by this clessof uafnr.uaa. 8 will re
vs rt to its rightful handE free labor.

Saturday morning. They fouud a more
feasible route than any hitherto exam

of Brandon, entering Leake county
near Wa'nut Grove, Bearing Dixon
and p9s;ing a little to the south of
Philadelphia, in Neshoba county,
thence to Ma.on, from there to Col
umbus, from Macon to Jackson. Tbe
line is very direct, almost an air line
from Macon to Columbus. Mr. Shunk
is the consulting engineer, and it was
under his direction that the Manha'
tan sys'.em of elevated railway in New
Yoik was built He will not return
over the proposed route. The survey
will be made by Mr. Rawn. They
found the routs a most feasible one,
the only heavy work being between
Winstonville and Macon, and not as
heavy as was expected. From Macon
to Columbus tbe work is light, except
at crossings at rivers and bayous.

The Planters' Cotton Seed Oil Mill,

terday passed into control of the
American Cotton Seed Oil Trns",
which now embrares more than two
thirds of all the mills in tbe country,
and Uireatnns to swallow np all that
remain. The purchess was made by
securing all of the outstanding stock
at a price which bas not yet been di
vulged. In this case the American
Cotton Seed Oil Trust departed from
its usnal methods, which have been to
secure a majority of the stock and
freeze out tbe minority stockholders.
The Trust now controls the very
best mills in Memphis, and is master
of tbe situation here. It remains to
be seen whether planters will allow
themselves to be dictated to by this
cormorant corporation, and sell their
seed at f5 per ton, the price which the
Trust has agreed to pay.
