county the catmsa has been one of
unusual stillness and tracquillity. It
fpiroil that this bodes no cood (or
the Democratic rar,y. the nepro
is proud of the elective franchise,
never fails to vote, and aith him the
Hav nf i-.lection is a favorite boli-
day. On next Tuesday every colored
voter will be at tVje polls, prompt in
the exercise of a privilege which is a
joy and a ploasure to bim. This fact
has been demonstrated In every elec
tion for the past twenty years, acd
knowing, as the whites do, that a full
colored vote will be polled every Djmo
crat in Shelby county should resolve
to vote and to see to it that hia ne!gh
borvUei. The Phelan Club and the
Democratic Executive Committee are
working for the election of the entire
ticket, and every Democratic voter
should labor with the same object in
view. II DemoLrite will tarn out on
next TaesdBy, they will roll up a ma
jority tbat will imure the election of
the Legislative tisket and Phelan for

In the East the fall weather partakes
S3 much of the warmth of summer
that the demand for winter goods has
not yet set in, and the consequence is
a decline in transactions ai compared
with the corresponding, period last
year. This, of course, is not a loss of
business, only a postponement of the
date of the winter demand this season
.The clearings of last week show a de
cline on the total amount of 6.4 per
cent. Leaving out New York, how
ever, the couutry generally shows a
gain of 11.8 per cent, as compared
:with the eorrsspdnding week last
year. Of thirty-two cities reporting,
six show decline from a year ago
Tortlaad, Minneapolis, Providence,
Louisville, New Orleans, and New
York. Of these six cities, New York's
decinefroma year ago was 11.2 per
cent., Providoace 13, Minne
apolis 10.5, and New Orloans
26.9 per cent. The New York
money market exhibited no special
change, banker' balances ran from 4
to 8 per cent., averaging about 0 per
cent. The Bank of England advanced
its rate from 3 to 4 per cent, to pre
vent loss of bullion, and it has aleo
pat a premium upon gald bars, as we
explained last week. This is pu'.ting
the rate up when the quietude of
trade would keep it down. This act
ing in opposition to the laws of trado
ajjgrava'es the evil of the situation, but
it has to be done to keep off the worse
evils that would flow from the alarm
that would follow a serious Iocs of
gold. The immediate consequence ol
the advance was a rise in the open
market rate from i and 3 per cent, to
3 per cent CircuniRtauuts show that
just now there is heavy buying of
American stocks on huropean ac
count. Silver in London went up to
451 pence an ounce; this makes the
metal in our dollar worth 70 cents.
The New Yoik Chronicle states that
trade accounts remain encouraging, ai
"ihureisagreat rueh of work.prlciS and
piotlts satisfactory and tendingstrongly
upward. The disposition is to take
an exceedingly favorable view of the
outlook, and complaints are very
rare." Of coursa, for this to lipen Into
'gcod lime," the futore muet not he
ditcouuted too strongly or a relapse
must follow. High prices are not
s able prices, and they would etimu
late our already la g imports, which
would holp toward reattiou and more
deprei'in. There hna been some
talk about contraction of the c'rcula-
tion, but the Treasury oillciala claim
(hat the money market has bean
beneftUd by tin bond calls, that clr
dilation is e'.eadily increasing rather
tbuu diminishing, and that there
no nnnfcesiary accumulation ot legal
tjndars in the Treasury.and none that
is umW-.irnb o It is thought that the
EiiVntitutiou of the new rilver str!ifl
catt'8 Ijr the natioual bunk notes re
tired will ibviats every difllcalty that
night otherwise arise from thitt con
trac ion. The New York Indicator
claims that the 7 and 8 per cent, rales
ia Wall ttreet ura purity ntiflcial, and
in proof show that the recent 3ptr
tent. New York City loan for thirty
years wis taken at rates averaging 4 57
per cent., and says that at that
rate the purchasers of the bonds will
rial'aa only 2.75 per cent., which
shows how cheap money really is.
European war troubles arouse watch
fulnesf, but at preaent tre not much
rflVctiug values. The New York
Iribunt regards the recent idvance in
Iron as nominal, and buuinxts not
quito as fcood ts some suppose, and
rays: "Expoits from New York were
considerably less in value last week
than lit the week preceding, and for
the first half of October, instead of
the great increase recently recorded,
there was a decrease fr,onj last year of
4 per eent. in exporta and 10 per cent.
in Imports." The New York Invaii-
gator says, in reference to the advance
of the Bank of England ta'e: "Bnt
nothing can prevent gold from com
ing here, became it will be owing tons
for produce and cecnrities, and noth
ing can prevent rislog prices for
stocks in responte to our growing
national prosperity." Tte New Or
leans Time sees eigne of in
creasing prosperity, especially in
the Smtb, where capital is aiding to
incrrase mining and manufacturing
induitr'ei. It thinks labor agitation
ba delayed trade revival, and will
obstruct activity if continued. The
Indicator says: "The Bink of Eng'and
decreased its rate of discount to 4 per
cent, yesterday. S:erling exchange
was reduced to 481484. That is
good for gold imports, but while it in
dicatos tne disposition to reatrict galsl
(xportH this cannot hurt the United
Slates. We eliall be a large seller of
com mo lilies abroal in any event.
And wo can either take gold or some
thing more valuable. A 4 per cent,
bank rate will not interfere with our
prosperity. The advance In the Bank
cf England rale djes not keep ex
change up as it was expectel to do.
We must have the gold." Of some
Southern secureties the same authority
states: "The coil and iron depjslta
of the Southern States have lately ac
quired a prominence never before at
tained. The coal and iron belt ex
tends from West Virginia through
Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee and
Alabama. New furjacis are pro
jected at Birmingham, Atlanta, Shef
field, Nashvillo and Paducah. v aln
able deposits of ore exist on both
banks of the Tennoesee river as far
North as the Kentucky boundary,
and a project is on foot to bring ores
down the river to its mouth, and there
erect iron farnacss and rolling mills
tot the 8 ;u'h western demand, for
which cheap transportation is found
at all seasons. The Tennessee Coal and
Iron Company's s'ock and the Toledo
acd Ohio Central preferred were the
strongont of the lets active tecuritiea.
Either stock will pay purchasers band
semely to buy outright. Eait Tennes
reports an Increase of $19,824 for the
second wetk of October, or over 22

respond to such figures very soon.

announced to be held at No. 13 Hal

After advocating the c'aiuas of the can

the condemned anarchists. He eaid:
"Last week the C'zir of Russia killed
one of his officers. Will he be brongbt
before a court? No. Last week Pou
Armonr spent f:i500 a day for h'S

tell the truth and we will not be

from the crowd.) "The truth will be
told," continued the speaker, "and I
am one who will loll It. And I will
tell it on the Lake Front next Bunday,
if I do ao in front of a Oatling gun and
have a rope around my neck. It I
have but one minute to live I will

t stimony in respect to the validity of
the entry, and compliance by the
entryman with the requirements of

the matter to Secretary Lamar, with
recommendation that he reajuett the
Att-rrey General to instruct tbe
United States Attorney by telegraph
to appear without delay before the
Court i' suingi the writ and have tbe
same die olved, on tbe ground that
the Court transcended its jurisdiction
in attempting toin'erfere with United
Slates land officers in the discharge of
duties involving the exercise of ikeir
judgment and d scrttion. The Secre
tary concurred with the Commissioner,
and at bis request the Attorney
General gave tbe necessary instruc
tions to tbe District Attorney. That
officer bas now reported that on the
