sates of Rime, on through mediieval
L'hiistisnitT, down the ages into the
dawn of oar own Repnblio cmg the
echo of th;e eigh, tne teverberation of
that groan, and yet we chil
dren of today learn no lesson
from the dead of yesterday. All
of ns are familiar with the picture of
tbe sncceseful oanilii'a'e etanding
with the halo of fireworks and victory
above him, while he responds to the
eeienade cf bis happy fiiemh. But
how many of us have fo'.lowed home
yonder broken man who, when the
morning sun aronced him, awoke to
win tbe victory which never came.
His hopes were b'gh, bis fai'h in the
promises made hitn by his fellow man
wss strong, and he went forth to 'he
battle ns did the eager war boise of
old. His was the bright dream of
winning everlnsting fame by eerving
truly and faithfully tbe people whom
he loved. Ueis utttr'y alone now;
tbcee whilom fiiends are at the re
joicing made out there where, under
tbe giaie of the electric lighte, his op
poiet is speiking. Afar off eoumls
the shout of the populace, the snout
which in his fond lmarniug ws to bail
him when the day was done ,but which
is now a peal of triumph for eno'her.
The drum be t. the trumpets blare
and tbe cannou s roar comes t3 bis
ear as be wearily s'ang jrs on his home
ward way througl toe darkned, fa
miliar streets. At las'1, out from his
own house, shines on hi in the only
light which has yet pierced his dull
and deadened brain tbe light by
which tne lovirg, the anxious, the
constant wife (G jd blets her !) has eat
all night in hope and fear, awaiting
tbe tinible heme coming. We will
not enter with him. 'Tie enough for
us to know that on the o'.her side of
that door the great soul of womanhood
is soothing and upholding a staggeied
manhood. Let ns go back to where
they rejuice, my biethren, but let us
go with a drop of tendernets and
charity in our hearts, of which tbe
lovely Galilean preached.
Mr. James Phelast.
Mr. Jiimes Phelan spoke about as
follows: He said being called nnt of
the order on tbe litt of speakr-ra was
tbe second indignity to whicb he bud
been subjected, the fl it being the
change in the toast, for which he wa
not prepared. As he ar. se a friend
hud told bim not to ue any rworop.
He bad prepaied a long amy of statis
tics, which be thought would he of
interest to bis bearers. He had f u d
evidences which led h'm to the con
clusion that the fi st marks of creation
had ben found on the banks of the
Missitsippl river, wh'ch in three
days had been callod the Euprhates.
He had discovered that the beginning
of Memphis bad been the begioning
of the world. The first edi ion of the
Appbal bad appeare l in the Garden
of Eden. Tbe Avalanche had come
out of a volume of flame and smoke
and suggested another origin. The
moon had been set in the heavens for
tbe first born children of men to ad
mire. The man in the moon had
founded and issued the Evening Ledger.
Tne angel who stood with flamtog
brand at the gates of Para
dise had eet on foot the Evening
Scimitar. Mr. Phelan then alluded to
the patt played by Mr. Doatc in Ihe
political history of Shelby county, and
referied to the fact that bis name and
h s own had recently been irreverent
ly mingled together. It had been
ra'd he had repudiate the editor of
the Avalanche. Nobady but, the
Breaker could appreciate tbe irony of
this reona'k. He illustrated his first
and ln.it ttt mpt to lo.ik att r D.iak by
en nn;cdote. He closed by paving
a tribute to Mr. Desk's librra'i'y
of mind and his fair and just
treatment of public questions. He
eaid that sot the sl'ghtet unkind jir
hid ever taken pWe batween them,
and that the kiudlietft relations bud
always exitted bfttween them. He
spoke of Mr. Doak's manly chatarter
end tot him forth as a shining 1'ght
among Ameiican journalists. His
leaving Memphis was a lots to him
personally, to the Avalanche, to Mem
phis and to journniinno at urge.
Jmiico McDowclt'a Speech.
In rfspo'ding to the tos-,of ''Bench
and Bar," Judgd McDowell raid :
It is s .id that wine, lik a scire facias,
revive our judgment. Let us aU test
it by drinking one deep draft to
The editor, scholar snd poet, II. M Doak,
Somolimes culled Parson, by way of joke.
I am ca'tad upon to speak t i the toast
of the "Bench and Bar" which bar I
am not told, but if I am to imitate tbe
example of my brethren around me
tonight it is 'tot her bir that is meant.
Brother Lynn taniht me in tbe last
canvsBS how to ba on b th or either
side of any doubtful question. So, lo t
I make a mistake, I will give my con
eideret'on to both. And as to tbe
bench, I will suggest that, from what
I see around me, there will soon
be mora need for the bench than the
bar, and it was perhaps this ri flection
that induced the versatile Keating and
the fruitful Mathes to suggest this
toast, and to plare the bench in front
of the bar, for they have both been
there. We have all seen them there
in the wee hours of tbe night, when
they were far too rich to walk home.
I know many t'.ings on toat that are
far better than any speech of mine.
Indeed, I am poor on or off of foist.
Yet I am fullest of speech when I
stick cloeeat to them and I am always
sad when I stop tots'ing to epeak,
and those who hear me are sadder
than I am. Some go so far as to sav
I am dry as well as sad when I
do so, but any man row pres
ent who thinks that I belong
to tbe cry crowd tonight is a ii.
sul j jct for the foolkiller. It might bo
better siid that I rm t to full for utter
ance Yet if I di not altogether stick
to tbe points as Judges a ways do, you
muitnot presuma that I waLdr be
cause I stick too close to the toaits.
You most remember that I am cot
now Judge ; that I have goce from the
bench to tbe bar, as some of you n ay
have observed tonight, rd you ail
know that no "pent np Ulica" lim'.ti
the range of a lawyer's thoughts, and
also that lawyers are not often ac
cused of sticking too clnse to the point,
and I do not wish to Hock by mvself.
By way of a change, however, I will
go back to my toast and speak for a
while to the legsl tide of tbe bar and
tbe bench. I suppose the bench and
bar are toasted at this banquet, be
cause our honcred fr.end and truest is
about to leave tbe "great and sood
Avalanche." us tan tts and i s Blair
bills, to go among the Judges and
lawyers of Nsshvile,
Where neither Wolf river nor King Causes
Where old chestnuts no longer will fall in
his WMV t
Where he no more of sncicnt statesmen will
And tho Journal office bore vanish Irom
I imagine that I em railed upon to
reepind ti this t-aet, because lam
jus-, from tbe bench, aud sin noit of
the bar. And I enppo-e thai I am
r xracted to tell bim something o' the
j , dire and tbe lawyer by way nf pre
paring bim for his new asEO'.ittio'is;
but as be waa a lawyer before be
learned to play on bis bsrmonicon,
this is a need lets task. By war of a be
ginning I will state that we have be
fore us proof that jiidirs sometimes
nndortake very difficult tasks.
To make a clerk out of the
editor or parson would seem
to be about as incongruous as
to make a conservative politician out
of a new born convert m search cf an
office. The talent for epigrams and
witty paragraphs, and for graceful
style and vigorous thoustht of leading
editoiials, find little exercise in mak
ing np the routine minutes cf judicial
decisions. This talent is a ill lets fitted
to listen by the hour to the dull
speeches of prosy lawyers which be
cannot escape. And he will soon learn
that the duller the lawyer the lorg-r
his speocb, for I will take np the bal
ance of tbe night Yet we ate told
that gcod editors are many sided, and
lake to tbe bar as naturally as Prohi
bitionists do to water. Let ns there
fore hope that he who controlled our
Aialanchi will fled pleasure and con
trntment in the s'ately and dignified
proceedings of . Uncle Sam's umut
court, and also find opportunity
for work, wh eh, if not more bril
liant than his c induct of a news
paper, will be far mora enduring.
The editor, like the lawyer, lives only
in his day, aid his lame and name
on'y amon bis contemporaries. The
vast columns uf a new?ppar and the
management ef a lawcUit ara alike
only part of current events, wh'cb
pensh wl'h their remedial inllueuces,
while a bo k that is worthy tj live is
a perenniul foantan, f.om which
generations may dritik, and in Ui
more priceless than tbe ii lies' jewel
and f ir moie enduring than marble
shales or Drown st.nnary. it is "a
thing of bsau'y and a joy fi rever."
Journalism, like tbe prsct ceof the
law, is the p'ay of iLteilect on
the rock, goaded into activity, fev
ered by excitement, plying its pow
ers in the dtily task of ma ing
the brick, whether thete be straw or
not. Whib authoisbip is iuteliect
nursing lis energ es, putting forth its
best efforts, in is best wrrds and
best thoughts, with time and oppor
tunity for healthy digestion. There
fore we miy be content t sen the
light of the edit jr go out if ano'.her
and bettsr radiance is (o bi kindled
among the lighter duties of the cletk.
Gharlea Lamb wrote the "Kssiya of
Eiia" while be occupied the pVe of
an accountant in tbe East India Com
pany. Bamuel Roge'S dreamed on
"The Pleasures of Memory" in tbe
parlor of his bsnkii g boue. Litera
ture a?d loutiue bus;nrs3 are
not, then fore, incomratible. And
hence I predict that our de
parting friend will become the
official recorder of federal Judicial pro
ceedings without robbing tbe world
of the wit and wisdom, the pathos
and poetry and tbe poro Ergliah
writing and the cogent reasoning
which have so emicbed our daily
press. Tnerefore let us warmly wel
come Parson Doak into the good com
pany of tbe lavye'S and judges
where be will surely grow better, if
not wiser, from the Influence of giod
associations; and at the sme lime
weave for himae.f a wreath of literary
garlands that will be groin aad
fresh long after his day and gen
era ion. Beyond all doubt the law
yers ars the greatest conservative in
fluence In the secular affairs of men.
If you ca'l them a necessary evil the
necessity will exist as long as human
selfishness and perversity shall con
tinue. They are traiued in the study
of individual thoughts and duty, and
of the rules by which the law seeks to
pro ect thise rights and ei force those
duties. From t'lis protest ion aud this
tiaining tht judin-a y arises t j dtfi le
the application of these rules to par
ticular cases and to admiuist r the
remedial and restraining attendee of
tbe law. There is no factor in our
evil zation more po'ent for god than
the judiciary, and cer ain'y notieso un
obtrusive ami eo little ppr ciatt d. No
where in the same amount of weary
toil atidbiain work so poorly pid and
so lit le valued as that of the judicia
ry, and especially in Tennessee, wheie
a judge is ail t rues expected to listen
continuously, ti answer wisidy, delib
erate toberly a-id decide impartially,
although his mind is cften racked
with financial worry and harra'sing
earn, whicb sptings from the failure of
tbe 8 a'e to pay him a salaty commen
surate with his necessary expsntes.
This niggardly economy of tha State
is a foul blot on our statutes as well as
a rrti. c ion on the wiedoin of onr law
Dr. D. 1. Maiinflere'g) Rp"-lt.
Dr.Dudley D. Saunders responded tl
tbe tr. att "The Medical Profusion" as
follows: It has been said that "the
proper study of mankind is man." If
such be the case the medical profession
is sttictly in tbe line of dtfy. Before
the "morning sters fang to tber" tbls
terrsBtrial sphere swung qniveriBg
from the Invihible haed of lK-ily and
Straightway commenced its piepera
tion to subserve the interests
and comfort of this lord of
of creation, nude in the image of bis
maker and "onlv a little lower than
the angels." What grand r or nobler
subject for study cjnld bs pre
sented, wonderfully snd mys
teriously ts he is made? What
fascina'ion in the thought that
we may be able to add one link to
that mysterious chain stretching from
the crsdle to the grave. How to pro
long human life, prevent snd stay the
ravages of disease constitutes the
proper fie d of our labors. Preventive
medicine or hygiene is now taking a
firomient place in onr investigations
ow to keep you from gettirg sick,
then how to tnre when sick
and prevent ycu from dying is
tbe subject of our study. In the past
hundred years 10 per cent, has been
added to tbe longevity of the bumau
family. The med'eal profession, and
by this I moan the regular school of
medicine, is ! ling more real hard
work, and in tbe past ten years hai
msde more real progres1, than any
other of tbe lesrned professions. I
have net time to enter into detail?.
"No pent up Utica" contract its
knowledge; it has no secret ncs rums,
patent' d remedies or instruments; no
false dogmas control its powers or di
rect Us faith, but in the spirit if true
scholarship it a proptia'esand ntil ijs
the results oi scientific obeervatiun
wherever fonnd. Prometheus like, it
filches the fire from Uesven, chains
tne uimb'e footed lightning to its elec

along the sluggish human nerves. It
draws its healing balma from i be na
tive forests, fresh and bio iming gar
dens of tbe earth, cultured by ths fair
hand of nature and redolent with fra
grance as an angel's fresh culled

upon the great white scroll of the
r. V. B. Bryaa.
Mr. C. B. Bryan spoke as fo'lows:
The writer who trar emitted t future
ages the incident of the cherry trre
and hatchet in the life of the biy who
conld not telt a lie, conferred an in
estimable benefit en pos'.eritv, and I
feel that I will honor onr gmst and
perbapM pleas his friend oy giving
soma reminiscences of bim bt;foio he
became tbe rotund, fat and sleek jour
nalist we now see. A good many
years agi, graded to desperation by
dyspeptia, I applied a farm of OlH)
acres to it. It relieved my dyspepsia
and pocket at the samo time We
wero a rnde aad simple folk in
the n igtborhncd. The mules
wrs shuck collars, the men one
"allus" a'id enpras breeches, and
the women BU i b.mno's and dr. s es
innocent of pufl or pannier or bneitle.
Suddenly there bn'st in upon ma
lean, cadaverous yjung limb of the
law, who bought a trcct of combined
strong and marehv land and ttir.ed
out as a farmer. His personal appear
ance wai not in his favor. He had a
li-an and hungry lojk. The neighbors
looked aekanc on hitn from the bs
ginning. He did not always go to bed
at early candle light; he had books
which no one could rend, and tilked
in cine unknown tongue of al
kalis, phosi bates and guano. He
wore gum boots reaching to
his wais', and had a fierce, vicious
way of attacking stumps and roots
snd with instruments of soin.i out
landish kind which he was believed
to have borrowtd from the Evil One.
He might, however, have lived down
all the tusnlc'on aud distruit, but
when they liuulthat he hadnamid
h'8 bleak hill-ide, crowned with a log
cabin, ''Kalorama," tl.eir f irbia a-ice
gave way. In vatu did a sympa his
In r, neighbor try to divert the storm
hy catling his placs "(Jlosa tj
DoakV, and rplled c'ose with

They boycotted him and cast hitn
out. He quit farming and to this pop
ular uprisirg we are indebted for ttie
"avalanche1" of wit and wlrdom with
which we have been favored for a year
or more. May ws ne t now expect
that in tho new field on which he has
entered he may encounter some other
Kalorama, lika Btlaam's as?, to Warn
him that neither farming nor keeping
Uncle Sam's seal in his proper voca
tion, but the broad field of journalism
for which he is so eminently Sited and
which he S3 adorns.
Mr. 0. P. Madden.
To the toast of "The City" President
Hadden nsp'nded as follows: "Mr.
Chairmen and my fellow citizens I
waa roques ed to coma down here to
night and s.e Doek off laughter snd
represent the city. I couldn't see any
connec. ion between seeing Doak off
and representing the city, but have
come all tho same. I am asked to
renpoud to the toast " the City." That
is a mienomer; we have no City, yon
all know Ihe rame laugher invented
fi r us by C 1. Uamt. In lintenlng to
the fpetcheB delivered to.o'glit you
must havo o'jteivrd that lbs i.ews
paper meu ere worked to detith
aud uet no pay, and the lawyers, and
the legiolntors, find the jttdg s, find the
pbysicinne, they all complain they are
worked to death and got no pay. Yet
I reprefent a 1 three professions. I
prescribe p. lis for the city's patients,
write parairiaplis tor tbe newnapers,
sit on tbe bot ch ai n judgo, snd as my
friend Pat Winters would cay, act ib
prcsecuiinu n'totney at the name time.
Laughter, Yet I don't complain of
not enougii pay. Now as to the city.
What is the use of one man speaking
his sentiments when there are 76,000
men. women ana children hero ull
ntoclalminii iti irrratness. and wl en
the eyes of the United Stttes and
the world are turned in our
direction. Each day, each week,
only sods to our prosperity.
Our legal tilent is not surpa'sed any
whero. That's recognized ; its recog
nittd in Wahirgton, where we had
the drummer's tax discn'sed the other
day, and when 1 asked Ssm Walker
abont it lie said: LUtte wr gm made
the finest speech I ever heard in my
life." Theu thete's our doctors, tbey
can't be beat taking a man to pit cob
at d pn ting him together, and laying
him away Without making any noiso.
Laughter, Tbe o'her day, in dig
ging under a Taxing D. strict building
we fonnd three big holes full of bones,
all nttt'Btinit the science of our doctors.
Liuuhter. They are part of the as
sets our city and will stay there until
some day bone will come to bone, that
is If it can find its bone. Now, when
it comes to preachers, we can beat the
world. I went to church Sonday
night and intend to go once a
week hereafter. Sensation Yes, I
sin. Moddniy wou d suggest my si
lence upon the subject of merchants,
but I can't resist tbe temptation to
say that no city is in the enjoyment
of greater commercial prosperity than
Memphis. We can do more business
on lees capital, lend out money on
bigger rates of interest, charge more
insurance, pat more cotton on tbe
streets in the rain on Sunday, than
any tity in the world. With $10,000,
000 capl'al, we do 1100,000,000 cf busi
ness, and as Jay Qould t ild me tbe
other day-laughter you know I
got to bo quite iotimate with Jay, the
lu'tire thiee great cities of the West
and Southwest will ba St. Paul, Kan
sas City and Memphis."
Judge Hadden made other hnranr
oua allusions, chiefly to Col. Doak's
career as a jonrnalist. He said:
"You all know bis career on the
Avalnnclu. You all know how ha
has written. Some of his editorials I
couldn't understand, but I indorsd
them all the same. Ycu tay he
left bis impress upon journalism.
Yes, he did, but bow? By
introducing harmony into local jour
nalism, where before bis arrival all
waa petty rival. y and constant disten
sion snd turmoil. Now, through bit
influence, there Is brotherly love all
around." In conclusion he sa'd:
"Yon leave us all with tbe kindliest
of feeling in our hearts, and as the
representative of tbe city I ray you
tarry wth you the best wishes of our
Htatst Nesialur Mltowll.

A BUUTAL ASSAULT

The little ill smolling den at No 13J
McCall itreet, over whose dcor ban;',s
(lie sign of Sam Kee, Chinese hum
dryman, wai the prenn yesterday f 're
noon at about 10:30 oVlock of an u.t y
and bloody crime. A cur'ain bunging
on the In'ide ot the gla'S door of the
laundry almost thnts out the view
from tbe street, and the nitfcieants
were enabled to do their bloody work
umeen by any passer by. Tho tint
alarm was given by Mrs. Catherine
Horrigan, who keepn the American
House next do"r, and rents the laun
dry to Ihe Chinamnn. She taw two
men, one ra'her tall and of stout hui'd,
and the other of shorter atatnre and
wearing a derby hat, enter the laundry
and cli se the door behind them. A
short time afterward they came out,
and the smaller one locked the door
on tbe outside and nnt the key in bis
pocket She called to them not to
lock the door, but they paid no atten
tion fo her and walked hurriedly out
to Main street and turned dowu
to the southward. Fearing that
something waa wrong, Mr'. H or
rivan tan to the door ef the laun
dry and luokcd through the glses. A
horrible sight met her eyes. The pa
per covering the lanndry table wss
Bplaahed with lilocd, snd the floor was
also stained with tbe tell tale lluid,
giving evidence of a crime that had
just been enacted. Ram Kej lay be
tiind the end of the table near the
rear wall, writhing convulsively. Mrs.
Horrigan callod lo him, nnd ha ralsad
his head. It was covered with blood.
Mis. Horrigan summoned assistance
and opened the door with a key d her
own, Tho poor Chinaman waa found
to be olinr.ht lift-lees. His head was
swollen to twico i's natural iiz, his
left eye wus c o?ed and blood was
ttreaming fiom his ears and mouth.
He was ciimcimn and managed to say
that two men l al beaten and rub ed
him. His ovnri'oist aud money were
nibniiiB. Dr. Overall was summoned,
and after examining the viciim ex
pressed the opinion that, he bad been
struck with a sandbaut or some
otber luavy instrument, and wai
dsngerondy injured. The bleeding
was caused by l ho concussion re
sulting from the blow. Tbe inte
was robbery, beyond a doubt. The
two men raw the Chinamnn slnne in
the dimly lighttd room, aad evidently
determined at once to take the chance
of robbing bim and getting away be
fore an alarm could be. given. They
probably naked bim for some clothes,
which they pietended to have left
there, and when ho tarned to tearch
f r ihem among tho bundles on a shelf
near the rear end of the table, they
sprang upon him and did their das
tardly work before he could cry for
Tbe Chinaman wan neut to the City
Hospital and late last night was in an
Insnnsiblo condition. Hie esse in
critical. Tbe police trauked two white
men answering the description given
of the robbers to the river, which they
crossed in a skiff and escaped arrest.
