MEMPHIS. TENN., SATUKDAY NOVEMBER 20, 1886.
VOL: XLVI NO. 271
Th n'most conetercation was cre
ated in New York jecttrday by the
confession of Ex-Alderman Fullgrtfl
who rai a member of the celtbr.ted
"Boodle Board." He 'gve away
every one of bis prtoers in the eale
of the Broadway surface lailroad frau
ehiae in 18S4, including Jake Sharp
and R'chardeon and their lawyers.
Nothing now cm bev3 there gentle
men from the penitentiary.
Thb "people who do buainesa in
Memphis and whose children go to
oar city schools, arid bo reside along
the line rf the Cbarles'on railroad,
complain of the almost daily delays
in starting the accommodation train
the advertised schedule time of which
la 4:40 o'clock p.m. When appealed
to to remedy what is the occasion of
much annoyance to the persons men
tioned the officers of the road plead
the great'y increased traffic, but this
ought to be provided for so that the
accommodation trains can ran with
regularity thit will give the peopl
confidence in the road and indace
others to avail themselves of the com'
fort of suburban homes. We appeal
to Superintendent Pegram, who has
alwayp, 10 far as we know, manifested
desire to meet the public demands
long his line of road, to respond to
the request of our eubu' ban citizens
for prompt time in starting the accom
Pkxsidbnt Haddbr dealt promptly
and properly with Squire Cole yester
day, and we make no doubt that
Judge DuBoee will be equally prompt
when the case sent up to the Criminal
Court ccmcs on for trial. Memphis
nor Sbelby county can afford to per
mit any man to interrupt with vio
lence the com se of justice, especially
at its very fountain and source. Mr,
Cole himself, when he has time to re
flect, will realize that bis own safety
as well as that cf every man in the
county, depends up in the enforce
ment of the law. If every citizen
was permitted to go around and to m
aanlt pople and mg:8'rates at his
will, instead of peace and progress we
should baveteiror and anarchy. This
we don't want and won't have. Pie-
' tol-carrying ma t be punished se se
verely as the law allows, and the man
who attempts to defy the law and in
timidate a justice must be made an
example of. At any cost the public
peace must be maintained. Mr. Had'
den has again proven himself a fear
less and just judge.
Thb Harpers' party left Knoxville
on Thursday morning for Chatta
nooga, whence they left for Nashville,
where they will be today and, per
nape, tomorrow. It is pertinent
this tour to recall the fact that Ten
neeaee owes this opportunity of raak
ing herself known to Mr. John H. In
man, of New York, a native of Jeffer-
son county, in this State, and an
ex-Confederate who at the close
the war returned to his home pentri
less, ragged and forlorn like ail the
rest of the immortals who survived
the hard fought fields of the civil war.
His relatives ghd that be lived to tell
of hair-breadth escapes Welcomed him
with affection, but political passion
was still in the ascendant, and he
round that the atmosphere was
not conducive t3 his peace. He there
fore abandoned his home and went
into the heart cf his former enemy's
country, and there has made both fame
and fortune, and a name for honest
dealing and financial skill that all Ten
neeeeans must be proud of. They must
also be proud of his public spirit
and of the generosity that has in
dncedso many enterprises like this
tour of the Harpers', which is to
culminate in a finale of good will for
the South on the part of our Northern
brethren. Inman is a very Apostle
of Peace, with Aladdin's lamp in
hand, going about and doing all sorts
f kindly, genial and pleasant things.
We cannot think too highly of him
or remember him with too much
W.hil we are recalling, under the
stimulos of the presence of the Har

vance of Tennessee in manufactures,
we must cot forget our debt to the
few enterprising men who have been
identified with the railroads that have
been as the very breath of the nostrils
of our trade and commerce. Mr.
Charles M. McGhee is one of these,
Jinoxville owes him a deep debt. He
has been to her a constant encourage'

Mr. Wilson could see no immediate
profit, but he did see that by opening
up an almost wilderness for settle

of a property the richest in the world,

Suppressed by the Talents and Vir

Madbid, November 19. la the Sen
ate lant night the opposition dec'ared
that Premier Sigasta a policy was re
sponsible for tbe military mutiny in
Septtmber. tenor Ssgasta replied
that anyone who shnu'd have predict
ed that a yar would elapte after the
death of King Alfjnao withontany
distnrbance more serious than an up
rising of 200 unorganized men, which
was entirely aopprtsed within two
hours, would have been ridiculed.
Continuing, the Premier said the sup
pression of the revolt was due more to
the improved customs of the country
and the virtues and talents of the
Queen than to the efforts of the
government, which, however, had
done its best to preserve order.
Gen. Salamanca attacked Pre
mier Bagaata personally and amid
general murmurs, declaring that
the only, way to bring about the
fall of the' government was by resort
ing ti military uprising. Gen. Caa II
lo, Minister of War, condemned the
efforts to make the army a political
machine. He raid tbe policy of the
government wes to make of the men
composing the army good soldiers,
who won d qver be ready to serve
their country and follow its flag. The
general opinion is that tbe govern
ment carried off tbe honors of the de
bate, and that tbe opposition made
nothing by its attack.

Business and iadnstrial circles were
thrown Into a flutter of exhilara
tion this afternoon by the news that a
tiade had been struck which womld
bring S3.00O.OC0 of new capital here to
manufacture iron and steel. This was
the sa.e of the Sloes Furnace Com
pany's property, consummated in New
York yesterdav. The sale was effected
by Maj. John W. Johnston, president
of tbe Georgia Pacific railway, and the
bulk of tbe purchase money will be
furnished by Richmond, Va , capital
ists, whom he had already succeeded
in interesting in this district to a con
siderable extent. One hundred thou
sand dollars of Ihe capital comes from
New York. The pre sol t owners get
$2,000 000 for the property. Tbe buy
ers will make the Capital sloe It
$,000,000, building two furnaces and
probably sn extensive steel plant, with
the extra $1,000,000. The property con
sists of two furnaces, with an aggre
gate daily capacity of 225 tons, 250 coke
ovens, forty miles of the iron veins of
Red Mountain, 15,000 acres of brown
ore land, 20,000 acres of coal lands and
two large lime reck quarries. Col.
Sloes, president of tbe old company,
says it owned materials to supply ten
furnaces for 00 years.
This event somewhat overshadows
in the public view another transaction
of great importance to iron interests
ana to Birmingham, of which intima
tions have been in circu'ation today.
This means two, and nra-ibly more,
new lurnaces built cf E it torn money.
These items of news hfive given an
impetus to the real estate boom.which
already is tar ahead of anything ever
seen here btfoie.

Jackson, Mips , November 19. Ar
gument was marie before Jud.je Hill,
t f tbe Federat Court, lest n got in the
matter of tbe petition of the bond of
the receiver of tbe Vicksburg and Me
ridian railroad, filed some two wet ks
ago, praying that tbe Rulroad Comm s
mod ne enj lined from enforcing tbe
tariff cf charges for passengers and
freight last promulgated by them for
Baiii toad, and asking the court to per
mit tbe road to resume its eld tariff.
To grant the p ayer of the petition
would ba ihe virtual repeal of a law of
Mississippi by tbe Federal Court, and
wruld tbi reby bring the State and
f' deral authorities ia d rect col A ct.
Judge Hill did not decide the case,
but usud sn order to the receiver
command ng in effect to prepare and
present to the commission a new tnriff
for locil fre'ght charges without dis
crimination to persons or loca ities lhat
will pay 6 per vent, per annum on the
amount of tbe value of the road, and
to fix and charge the fere f r paeeeD
gers at 3 cents pr mile. The tariff
as heretofore fixd by tbe commission
was on the basis i f something over
$13,000 per mile valuation, which val
uation was adopted by the commis
sion from the statements and repre
sentations oi ine authorities ot said
road. Said company alleges the value
of the road to be $20,000 per mile.
The order allowing 6 per cent, profits
on tbe valuation does not decide on
which basis it shall be calculated. It
is supposed that the object of this
order is to endeavor to effect a com
promise between the commission and
the railroad authorities.

Helena, Akk., November It). Lset
nighe ab'nt 12 o'clock, while the
steamer Will H. Hays, which is now
running in the place of the Kate
Adama from Memphis to Arkausas
City, was at the elevator at this p ace,
a tragedy occurred that for a time ap
palled the strongest hearts of those
present. Tbe second mats of the
boat, a man named Joe Raleigh, was
standing about ten leet from tbe end
of tbe e'evator, when two negro
roustabouts wbo were concealed be
hind some freight, one of them aimed
with a club and the other with two
large lumps of coal, sprang out and at
tacked bim, knocking bim down and
bruising him up considerably. John
Terry, who was standing close by pre
paring to go aboaid the. boa', called
James Maddox, a special policeman,
and told him not to let the men kl I
the mats. Maddox ran to tbe scene
of the tcu file, and as he did so the
darkies broke and ran, one of
them going in the direction of
the ice factory and tbe other tak
ing t3 the right along by j
tbe river back. Maddox, who is very
fleet of foot, gave cbaee to tbe one
going toward the river and caught
bim within seventy five jarda of tbe
elevator, on the edge of a gulley. The
darky made au attempt to get away,
and in so doing pulled Maddox with
him in tbe au ly. Maddox bad his
revolver out, but refrained from nsins
it because he did not desire to kill
him, and as they fell in the gulley tbe
darky wrenched tbe pietol from Mad
dox'a grasp, and turning him under
the bottom placed the pistol to his
forehead, and if it had not been for
the presence oi mind of Maldox he
wou'd now be a dead man. His right
arm was free, and by a violent effort
ut as the negro was getting ready to
pull the trigger he sent It spinning
through the air with a well direitsd
blow. The darky, who was the much
more powerful man of the two.tt ent to
work totry to kill bim. Maddox feit
that he wes tryirg to get out his knife,
and did all be could by kicking and
pulling to prevent it, end at the same
tinie calling lustily for help. In the
meantime they bad, in their ecu Mug,
reached the pietol, and aaio the ne
gro had it p:e;ented to Maddnx's
head. The mate, wbo wes bleeding
profusely about the heed, io fact his
eyes wore almeat c'osed with blood,
heard tbe man's cry for help and
rushed to him just in time to save his
life. The mate ran up to ihe darky
and shot him twice, tbe balls taking
effect in his left side, and, it is sup
posed, entered his heatt, as he tolled
eff of Maddox into the gully, dead.
The mate wiped the blcod out of his
eyes as much as possible and returned
to the boat, which was just getting
ready to back out, when Offic?r Clan
cev ordered tbe men to consider them
selves under arrest. Capt. Qieek was a
little disposed to lga?.e Officer
Clancey's1 authority, and told one
one of the men to cut the rope, but
they were politely and firmly informed
by Olancey that the man that touched
that line would be a dead one. They
did not move until Uapt. lAust. Mar
thai of tbe city, arrived on tbe scene
end investigated the matter, when the
reco&mz tnce of all were taken to ro
dot before tbe grand jary and tbe
bst backed out. We learn that the
d ffiuilty with the matter and men
sterted at Memphis end was brewing
all the way down. Toe name ol the
