The mult of the impending elee
tion in Shelby conntv and the Tenth
Congressional District dependa en
tirely upon tie Democrats tbemaelvee.
They have the option of choosing be
tween full vote snd defeat, end
Democrats 6n!t you forget it on the
day of the election. The cinTass has
beei one of great serenity among the
Democrats, but it is to be hoped that
this is the calm that precedes the
itoim and that Demrera's are hus
banding their energies for the day of
the election. The country people bave
railed themselves of the favorable
weather to harvest their abundant
crops and they have no time to devote
to the canvass; tut neither rood nor
bad weather should prevent their at
tending the polls on the 2d of Novem
ber, and giving the entire day to the
cause and the ticket. The Democratic
majority In Sholby county at the Au
gust eloction wss nearly 50C0;
the Democratic majority in this Con
gressional Distriot , was nearly 400!).
We sin elect the Legislative ticket and,
- Thelan to Oongtess by the same ma
jorities if Democrats will turn oat on
the 3d uf November and work as they
did on the, $tn of August Toe elec
tion depend solely and entirely ou
ourselves.-' A mil vole electa every
man on out ticket--ecurei a glorious
. victory, A !iinall vote means an in-
' glorious, lgnominititM defeat, for even
' honor would not be eavid in a battle
lost by the d if affection of men ubo
refused tef rally to the support of their
brave comrades. There is no excuie
for a small vote on the 2d of Novem
ber, The ticket is tn meritorious as
that which inspired suoh unbounded
jIiow.I enujilssm, f Uie 6th of August.
James Phelan, our candidate'tor OOv
gress, is making an able, gallant fight,
and a man of pure character, honest
purposes ii would be a shame and
: a seandal '. tb see him dafeated
by a failure to turn out and vote. The
people of Shelby euunty never had
a better ticket than that which com
pose ' the1', Democratic candidates for
the Legislature. Look at tho names
as they stand in the editorial columns
of the ArriAL. Every man Is worthy
. ot the confidence ot all classes of cltl
ssns and should oommand the cordial
support ' of every Democrat In the
county. The Demo ratio candidates
,f,Lii for the Legislature understand the
v ' , needs of the people of Shelby, and as
" ' " the majority in the State Legislature
will be ia political sympathy with
them thqy will have more It finance in
secuiing legislation which the people
of Shelby want than a Republican
delegation could exercise in the Legis
lature. If Democrats desire the elec
tion of our candidate for Congress
and the State legislature they must
resolve In their hearts to vote for them
on the day of the election. Our can
didates have iatthlully discharged the
duties imposed on them ; if the ma
jority, who desire their eloction, will
do its part by attending the polls,
voting and working, tha victory of Au
gust will be emphasised on the 2d of
A T1ST SOCIAL, PKOIILKH.
The rotations of the working and
the emplp)ing members of the com
mnaity are year by year arousing in
cnased ' attention. Recent ' occur
rences have show u that germs of dan
ger, to society at large lie in the pres
ent conditions ol those relations, and
that sound policy as well ss correot
principle suggest that no effort should
be left untried to harmonli ) those re
lat'ons, si as to secure the welfare of
both. Tbe employer has the power
, that the pcsseeslon of moaey confers;
tbe employed that, which comes trem
the majority ot members. That col
lision between there 'two powers
woo d be a national calamity, de
itructive to peace and no lets so to
trade, is evident. How far these con
siderations are engaging the publio
mind is shown in a a article in this
W4rk'a Bradtireet'i, which slates that
it is receiving attention everywhere
from the pr.asj in mazarine litera
ture; tbe pulpit discussfs it; re
ligious mee inits dilate upon it, and
economists and thinkers generally
unks it a matter of etudy. Legiflation
has employed its resources in that di
rection; legislators and convent joos
expend their oratory upon it; execu
t ve action Is it flaenced by it; the
courts havd it before them; bureaus
ot labor statistics have bron oiganlred ;
our consuls abroad report upon it;
Btate boords of arbitrat or.s have been
consti'uted; politic are swayed by if,
and the people at large find in it a
continual eubj.ct fir conversation,
and, ia short, the labor question has
become a matter that inurosts every
division of eccie'y, f i om the million
aire in the midst of his luxuries to tbe
laborer tht "can find no work to do,',
in tin squalor if his wretchedness. If
any citism has underrated the omi
noutness ot the attitude the labor
qot on is a earning, or the Import
ance of tbe problem it iuclndes, the
above mentioned facts ran scarcely
fail to arouse bis attention and appeal
to his understanding.
AFB ISILHOiD THAYEL.
The greater $u,hbr and most calam
itous of the railroad accidents that
oecu appear to arise from trains of
one kind or another running into each
other. Orders are misunderstood, tel
egrams misinterpreted or disregarded,
conductors believe they can reach
given place before a train coming
from an opposite direction can arrive
there, and in other ways collis'ons
occur. Two or three days ago a train
could not proceed on account of the
heating of one of the boxes, and be
fore it could go on another train
dashed ittj it. If trains, while on
their course, could communicate with
each other, to that one train would
know when another before or behind
it met with any cause of delay, and
when they were safely "on time," ac
cidents from collisions, instead of be
ing the moat would be the least nu
merous of all. It is gratifying to
kaow that such a means of intercom
munication between trains appears to
be in a forward state toward perfec
tion. Tbe Railrtad Review informs us
that a system, of which Ed eon is
the principal inventor, is now in
use on the Chicago, Milwaukee and
St. Paul railroad, md is a success. It
is called "tbe air telegraph," and has
no wires. A car on each tr-tin has an
inexpensive instrument, an ioductlon
carlea the electric current from tbe
instrument through tbe air to the
wires st the side of the track. The
construction trains on the above men
tioned road, frequently having sev
enty or eighty men, in this way re
ceive orders when to move to a sid ng
out of the way of a coming train. By
this method distentions from wcrk are
avoided when accidents have occurred
which ciusb hours to be occupied in
clearing the trark. On other roads
all the men remain idle, at the road's
expense, not knowing when the de
tained train may arrive. The air tele
graph sots them to work and tells
them when the detained train is ready
to move sgain. So there is r couomy
as well as safe' y in the use of tbe air
telegraph. That invention appears
likely to do very much to prevent ac
cidents, and to render railroad travel
much safer thaa at present.
OERMAHT AND TUB HAISKB,
The Empsror of Germany is now at
a watering place for the benefit cf his
health, and tidings come that he is in
a very' seiious condition. lie has
fanting file, falls asleep Involuntarily,
and has periods of nnconsciousnea
At his advanced ags such a condition
of bedy is omiuons in the extreme,
and a diseaee of tbe bladder makes
matters still worse, so that a few
months, at the furthest, are assigned
as the duration of his life. Wilhelm
Is veryjpopuUir with his subjects, who
bear uinch out of respect to him they
would ' not endure under other cir
cumstances. The baud of the mon
archy presses hiavily upon Germany.
Under Bismarck's policy the liberties
of the people have been less regarded
than the prerogatives of the mon
arehy. Tho taxes required to sustain
the Immense German power is a
dead weight upon German trade,
and the number of youth it
takes from the population is
a harsh grievance to 'he people. The
Germaus are an ibtelllgont, well read
people. They know what libarty is
and they prize it, as the efforts that
were made in 1848 make evident. The
present system is far from what was
then proposed snd expected, but Bis
marck's crushing policy has ballUd
and obstructed the national policy
then introduced. While the old and
venerable Emperor lives this is borne
with, but when he is gone the people
will begin to assert their rights, and
Germany and all Europe will feel the
effect of the charge.
FROM TUB PEOPLE.
The Attack on Judae Morgan.
To th. Bdltori of the Appeal:
Being a Desoto county man and a
strong supporter of the lion. J. B.
Morgan for Congress, I can't help but
read the letters of the distinguished
gentleman from Bybatia, Mies. I
know nothing of Dr. Kite's political
record, but am certain he has assumed
a very awkward position for a man
who claims to be a Democrat. I have
always been accustomed to seeing
true Democrats make their fight in
the convention, and if the will of
the people is contrary to theirs,
they ' would quietly fall into the
rauks and work for the nomi
nee, hut in bis case it Beems
quite different. As to Dr. Ly lee. it is not
necessary for me to discuss his past
record particularly. ' The people of
Marshall county and Deeoto are per
fectly familiar with it. I will sav this:
I will make a wager that J. B. Morgan
will be e'ected by a handsome major
ity, regardless of what Dr Lyles and
Dr. Hits may think in regard to the
matter. I am here where I meet the
good people from tbe Second District,
and I hear of no trouble or disaffec
tion to amount to anything. Tbe
people of old Deeo'o are solid for Mor
gan, with the exception of Ingram'a
Mill, which is near Byhalia, and
has had a (iteoi'bsck element which
was lead oil from the Democratic par
ty Severn! years ago by Dr. Lyles end
Arnica. Thy nre now, I underttand.
advocating Chalmers's canpe. Itwoula
bo a hard matter for anyrne to make
the peeple believe that the lion J. B.
Morgan, who has itood by them po
litically and otherwise!, is unworthy of
their support. c. w. w.

there ma.-tr of the eiruttion, without
making a single promise or cbangirg
tne.tectcn etupiotea in tne manage
ment of tbe syetim at that point, and
tbis is tbe way ne aia lr, in an inter
view with a journal reporter :
' Is it reaily your intention. Mr.
Gould, to remove your general offices
(rem St. Louis to tbis o ty?" was
"The matter has been somewhat
considered by the board for come time
past," said Mr. Gould, "but there has
been no decision arrived at officially."
"Is it probtb'e that in the future
this city will be made the headquat
ters of your offices?"
"Well, yoa can ses for yourself that
the Jfl sjun fauinc is more and more
centralir og its branches into this city,
The termination of the Paola exten
sion will open up a new territory to
Eaasas Ctry, pouring into that city the
tr de of tbe Southwest. This road
will be completed by January 1st and
running its cars into Kansas City. By
that time we expsct to have 1000 miles
ot rad completed in Kansas, all of
which will cyi'er to Kansas
City. Then, lKaids this Paola
extension, there is the branch from
Atchison and L'ncoln with its feeders
to the Northwott. We Lave recently
purchased tbe Denver, Memphis and

Today I gave out the coutract for the
extension of that branch through to

"Do ynu in eud to remove the ma.

"I have not thought of that. We
could not very well romove them from

and the general offices will remain in
St. Louis, where it it as necessary for
them to be located as it is to have
shops at a junction point like
Sedalia. St. Louis is and will
remain 'h natu-at center of the
Missouri Pacific eystem, as the new

about as much likelihood that the

of mrstege No. 25, from tbe Houte of

there is a disposition rmocg them for

bread and p ayer, and to also ascertain
what benefit, in their view, would re

union. The same committee reported
that it had bad under consideration

F H E OF A MOXOPQLY.
ttemeuta In Bard to tbe Baal
neaa of the Western Vnlon.
Among the monopolies with which
tbe United States is cursed, tbat ot
tbe Western Union Telegraph stands
conspicuous for extortion and ano
gance. What it is to its employes
was BuihCieutly manliest so ire tmi
ago when its opprrseed and ill paid
employes struck against it, with all
the feeling ot purine sympathy on
their side. Yet, wiih all its gra-plrg
and annexing and meamees, vast as
are its extent and resources, the
Western Union is not prosoerotip,
The New Ytrk Htrdld says: "Judging
from the Enures in its meager annual
report, made public yesterday
(Wednesday), tbe Westarn Union is
in a very bad way. Sitce 1H80 the
capital siock hes been d iubl-d, tbe
expenses bave been eiormouily in
creases, tbe treasury bits besu swe, t
bare of available as-eta. and (he pro
fits bave been only two thirds of
what they were in the year numed.
Monopoly and meannes3 ruve
overreac' ed their ohject, and what,
conducted on B'raigLutorwaid buel
ne?s terms, would bave been a good
paying investment, appears to be ap
prcachfng ruin. For the year ending
Jut e 30tii, expenees increased $372..
000. and tbe net earnings $1,779.0: 0
which follow a decrease of $2,690,435
the previous year. No dividend, sys
the Herald, was peid-for the last quarter
of a year, and for the March quirtrr
scrip to the amount of Sl.ll9.8tYj was
dietribufed and is now outstanding as
an interest bearing debt. How the re
port in "d'.ctortd" bo as to make tbe
beu cf a verv had cess can be indeed
of by the fact tbat a judgment for
about a quarter of a million of dollars
owing to the Bankers and Merchants'
Company is left unmentioned.
