Tan venerable ex-President of the
Confederacy want up to his birth'
pi a je in Kentucky on Sunday and was
present at the dedication of a Baptist
Church which stands upon the site of
his old home, which he presented to
the congregation, and with it a tuver
communion seryice. Still vigorous,
though now near bij SOth year, Mr.
Davis in all his movements on the
sacred occasion was characterised
by an nnusual vigor of maa
ner and of, spseuh. "Age does not
stale his infinite variety." He is still
the courteous, accomplished man of
the world, still ready to converse upon
ny topic and maUsr of everything he
touches. Nothing in .his eventful life
was more touching than this pilgrim
age to the spot where he was born,
and nothing we feel sure was ever
more gratifying to him than to see his
old home replaced by a church of the
creed which his father preached and
of which he was a faithful exemplar.
In an interview with the Nashville
American, which we reproduce else
where, Mr. Charles Dudley Warner
furnishes what will be the keynote of
his comment on what he will have
seen at the South when the tour of
the Harpers' party has ended.
He is endeavoring to get close to the
life of the people. That tells the
whole story of their aims an ends. Ic
tells what they are, and that sum
measured by the highest results
of civilization tells what they are
compared with the most advanced
nations of the earth. Writing with
this pnrpose and in this spirit we have
nothing to fear from Mr. Warner, who
views already one phase of our social
life the condition of the negro in a
way common to all thoughtful, obser
vant and unbiased persons, whether
born at the North or the South.
In what he says on this head he gives
fair warnirg of his purpose and bis
Announciment is elsewhere made
of the death of Charles Francis Ad
ams, who will readily be recalled by
the readers of the Appsal as the
Minister representative of the United
States at the Court of St. James dur
ing the civil war, and who, under the di
rection of the astute and wily Seward,
and in spite of the influence of the
aristocracy, which was enlisted for the
Confederacy, succeeded in preventing
England from recogn'zing it as a na
tion. Mr. Adams proved himself an
able Minister and every way worthy
of his illustrious lineage. Had he not
turned his attention to public life he
would have made his mark asa writer;
as it is he leaves some work behind
him to attest his ability in that direc
tion. The best known of his children
is Mr. Charles Francis Adams, of the
Union Pacific) railroad, who has writ
ten great deal that is useful and val
uable on the economics of transporta
tion. "Piq-ibon" Kbllky, the great apostle
of protection, that most flagrant of the
sins against the Federal Constitution,
is in Nashville for the purpose, we
presume, of strengthening the hands
of the little coterie who dream
of a time to come when the
most odious and exacting of all
the tyrannies that a people ever suf
fered from will become the pet doc
trine of a majority of the people of
the South. ' But that day cannot be
hsstened by Kelley. It will never
come. As fast as the public debt is
paid just so fast will the tariff be
decreased, and we are not without
hope that in ten years from this
the bond incubus will have disap
peared and there shall remain only
the ordinary expenses of government
to be provided for. Then the tiriff
will be simplified and U that is nec
essary to life and comfort be freed of
taxation, the iron pot and skillet of
the cottage included.
Thi ArpBaL four or more years ago
urged upon the Legislature the im
portance of a law compelling the reg
istration of births and marriages as
well as deaths. By liberal quotations
from the vital statistics of Eng'and,
where much attention has been given
to that very important science, we set
forth the advantages that would fol
low in ' reports that would show the
health of tome localities over others
and so cause an inquiry into the
causes ot the difference and thus in
duce a perhaps needed sanitary work.
Massachusetts and Michigan, of our
own States, have been foremost in this
work by which communities are en
abled to balance their accounts to
know what the births are against the
deaths, and to see on which side
the debit or credit stands.
Nothing in the life of a
State is more' cesentlal than the
knowledge that vital statistics gives of
the growth and decrease of popula
tion and the rate of births and marri
ages. It is the people that make the
State. They are its stock in trade.
Without them it can have no exist
ence. They are its riches. They have
a well defined money value, and every
death that can be prevented by sani
tary labor is a loss over and above the
natural loss, and is so much loss of
capital to the State. To make this
plain and to prevent a criminal waste
of life by diseases that sanitary work
can prevent vital statistics are essen
tial, and the health officer of every
county should be charged with
their collection and the Slate
health officer with their accumu
lation and publication everv vear.

INTERVIEW WITH CHARES DUD
t he Leading Writer Who Is to Give

Ka?hvile American of Monday:
Charle Dudley Warner, author and
newspaper editor, has been occopying
a choi re parlor noor room at tne Alai

remarked the litenry member of the
Harper party. ' 'Oath' has a country
seat over in Maryland, and I fancy
this title is taken from a river in those

man of youthful heart and manner
with an interesting stock of inlorma
tion stored in a mind of such breadth
as t) facilitate his easy use of it. He
lives at Hartford, Conn., and is the
editor of the Hartford Courani, of
which he is one of the four owners,
His journal is the oldest continuous
newspaper publication la tne United
States and has never intermitted an

ready. He wrote alternate chap'.era
ot The Gilded Age with Mark Twain,
and many of the chaoters of that vol
ume are joint productions. This
gives an idea, but not a
complete reviw of Mr. Warner's
literary work. The conversation was
variable and took a wide racge of sub-
jocte. I enjoyed my stay at Gen.
Jackson's home yesterday end last
night. He looks like Fitzhugh Le,
whom I saw and talked with in Rich
mond. He wautB me to visit him. As
he and Richmond ate both interesting,
I shall sek an opportunity to d so.

Well, this is in some rep?c's a pecu
liar expedition. It will be imD'jHsible
to write a detailed acjouat of tlie
Southern cities we have vUited ; and
it 1 should it would be impcs-iule to
print it. The MonQvy't spues hes been
taken for a year abend. I have some
Mexican articles that have been wait
ing a year for their turn. Tbe idea is
to throw into the wetkly short illus
trated articles that will take in tbe
main points of observation as much in
detail as possible, the agricultural, in
dustrial and architectural sides of the
Southern cities, and I shall write three
or four general articles that will be
illustrated for tbe mouthiy, mainly on
the social features of Southern life.
Nashville ought to have an entire ar
ticle to herself. But I can't say how
much space it will get, eo Nashville
will have to come in on an average of
how things impreeicd ns. I want to
give general impressions that will
rnswer the questions Northern peo
ple generally ask a man who has
been South. I shall include in this
what 1 notice of progress among tbe
colored people. I told this class in
Knoxville, and I shall tell them at
Fisk tomorrow tire same thing that
they will have their civil rights just
When they are ready for them. I
shall make a little talk at the Fisk. I
shall say plain things. , The negro has
actually had too much twaddle talk.
They are now on their own resources
and must work out their own salva
tion. 1 should really like to see all
the negro schools here. The social

TH THING AT LAST THI LIFI OF THI
I look mainly to this for my im
pressions of what any people ars ac
complishing. Given a knowledge of
this, I do not care to see the factories
very much. I have been struck
witn the fact that in nearly every
Southern place we have visited nearly
everybody was at work, no idler
holding up the sides of buildings.
This was remarkable in Virginia. The
negro women were all at work, and
even the white women are earning
19 and $10 a week in factories. What
the colored people have got to learn is
thrift. This spirit of work is the moBt
notable thing of the South today. In
Virginia all tbe old historic names be
long to men at work. Tbe old aristoc
racy is at woik. Lee in Richmond is
popular with tbe colored people, and
took me to see how nicely they were
living in pretly vine covered cottages,
and generally getting good wages. I
made a note of it. Tbe colored peo
ple, as far as I can see, seem to be piid
at their labor's worth, and I find that
their labor is sought for above the
whites. I have been coining South
two or three vesra, and I have wriiten
a good aeai aonui h id toe way oi im

standpoint what I have wnttsn of tbe
feeling tha". exists betteetn tha two
seciions toward each other hssbaen

ern Democrats, it so happens, than by
tne Mugwump element. Bat it is
delicate thing to write about. The
gradual expansion of mind going cn
will gradually bring the people to

You ought not to copy anybody. We
in the North, up to twenty yeais ego,
rather followed English models, to the
detriment of our originality. I find
tbe Southern people still English
s'illclarsic; but in the last six j ears
you have thrown more original mate
rial into your literary work than we
have. I speak of liithc literature. That
is true of Harris, Miss Murfree, Grace
King, of New Orleans, who, In the

ply delicious. The Norta is produc

and social subjects, an immense
amount of fresh matter, but I am
speaking sow of light literature. One
cause cf the attention your writers are
attracting is the freshness of your
neid. formerly .
THE YANKEE AND THB BOUTHKBNKB
was an exaggerated character. No
both sections are writing themselves
op in their true light, and the Yankee
is nearly exhausted. Before tbe war
what is called popular education and
discipline didn t exist. In all history
there has never been exhibited such a
change in education as the South has
shown in fifteen years. The number
of common schools in the cities and
the academies, where tbe studies are
on modern methods, is joss sinmly a
marv. lous transiormation. fancy
wbat tins town ot JNasbville was when
old Jackson was careering around
here. John Burroughs is altogether
tbe most charming writer about na
lure since inoreiu, and he is a very
fine fellow. He is very much liked
in England, too, and appreciated
there. Howells has an exquisite
style and is sincere and conscientious.
but 1 don't agree with his theory ot
realism. I wrote a paper in 1880 in
tbe Atlantic on modern fiction, which
explains what I thought about that
whole thing, tie 'is attempting to
depict ordinary common life, and
thinks it beet to show society as just
wbat it is. I He has tbe nabt
to write about it; but I have observed
tbst the living books are those that
while periectiy true to nature, have
tbe ideal, a sentiment and lofty
purpose. Nobody ever tbiokl Don
Wuuwe vulgar. Art there takes real-
sm and makes it ideal, just like palnt-
Inor apioturr. If I codv i nat what I
se I make a vulgar picture; but I
throw an ideal into it and it is just as
real and no longer vulgar. But about
ENGLISH AMD AMEBIOAH FICTION.
Howells said fiction had become a
finer thing today than it was in the
days of Tnackery. Of course that
raised a row. Daudet and Tolstoi are
called realisls because they wiite about
low and nnpieasant things, as reform
ers, theysay. Now they are only show
i ig ci tt in strata. In every comma
titv there is a bright and lovelv side
of human nature. Holding up that
side would do more good than always
writing about the low and vulgar.
There is another danger in this le il
ls m of American writers. They hvjk
enthusiasm and do not use their imag
ination. All the great truths are sim
ple and real, but they deal with human
nature in all its complexity. Hue how
Shakespeare mingles the high and
low. The tendency of the day is
toward newspaper and magaz'ne work.
But that wiil not produce things that
will live. That class ot writing, while
absorbing the best thought of tbe day,
is meant lor the passing taste.
SPEAKING OF REALISM,
I think there is a little reaction at tbe
North in favor of idealism. Scott is
very romantic and his works stand
better at the North now than they did
twenty years ago. You know James's
theory was that the stories have all
been told and that the whole interest
must be in the analysis, making no
difference whether there is a story or
not. But the fact is, the world likes a
story now just as much as in Homer's
time, ibe story telling capacity is
much rarer than the mere literary
faculty. Nothing can be more real
than Scott's characters. The scene of
tbe jail storming in the "Heart of
Midlothian," is as good as a police re
port. His scenes are full of realism,
yet he is a romantic story teller." "As
to our visit to tbe South we shall
give the best view of the New South
we can, and I am filled with much
pleasant and very interesting informa
tion." Look out for clever imitations of
Salvation Oil. Its unprecedented suc
cess provokes counterfeits.

necessity ex'sts for better docking fa

rendered more important on account
of the frequency with wbicb the steel
unsheathed vessels will require to be
docked to clean and paint their bot
toms. In tbe event of a foreign war
this great deficiency would be serious
ly felt, perhaps more so than any
other of our present want). It is
therefore worthy of grave ocmidera
