MEMPHIS. TENS., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 18S6.
.VOL. XL VI NO. 274
Tb Hon. Howell E. Jackson,
Judgs cf tbe Ucited States Circuit
Court, ii in the city, and opened
oourt yesterday fur the trial ol im
portant causae. A former dittin
gnhhed and leading member of th
Memphis bar, he will be d tiring his
stay the oljet cf special atten
tions by '.h's brethren and many of
our leading tit'ianB, who ate proud
of the eminence be haa attained to ts
ajariat, His cireerrefleote credit upon
himself and honor upon the 8tat be
represented so fuLhfully In the United
Thi Hon. Jefferson Davis is in the
city, a guett at the Gayow Hotel. If
the venerable and beloved statesman
is specially at home anywhere in the
States whose chief he was daring the
war it la here in Memphis, where
be spent ' many of the most
pleas in t years of his life. 01 coarse
be will receive the attentions of oar
citizens, who will eagerly avail them
selves of the oppoitanity to pay their
respects to tbe ex-President of that
Confederacy, one of the foremost fig
ures of onr era and one of the most
noted men of onr time. ' '.'
Thi Republicans are becoming
alarmed lest the Democrat shall unite
on a plan of tariff revision and so In
sure the country all that is possible of
reform in that direction for the pres
ent. This la a consummation meat
devoutly to be wished, and we believe
that Mr. "Sunset" Cox, of New York,
ifljust tbe man to initiate the move
ment. Both the extremes of protec
tion and free trade can afford to yield
something to him so that he can
formulate a plan that will insure sub
stantial relief for tbe masses without
violence to any of the manufacturing
interests of the country. Such a plan
would, we fitl sure, have the aid and
sympathy of the President and the
bearty indorsement of the people.
Thi Yicaaburg Commercial Is agitat
ing a change in the form of tbe
municipal government of that city,
and refers to tbe experience Memphis
bad under the old system of Mayor
and Aldermen. , Yes, it was a great
cone to as, but not until we had lost
millions by it and had been brought
almost to death's door did we attempt
to change it. Tbe result of that
change may be eeen in tbe greatly
improved, better built and well paved
streets, in our model sanitary system,
and our pay-as you go policy and plan
of budget, which prevents us from
making even one dollar of debt This,
added to the fact that our credit la
Al, ia in striking; contrast with the
fact that in 1879 VA had no credit,
were burdened with a debt of $8,300,
000 with taxable values of only $12,
600,000 to pay it, tells tbe whole story
of the value of our municipal change.
Tub death of Mr. Hoxie, general
manager of tbe Gould Southwestern
system, which is announced elsewhere
by telegraph, is due, we have no
doubt, primarily to tbe terrible strain
be endured during tbe strikes of last
summer. He then represented one
side of a controvery on the other and
adverse side of which there were sev
eral thousand clamorous men eager
and earnest in their parpoaa for an
increase of waxes, which mearit to
them better living for themselves and
families. A strain so loaded with ter
rible anxieties was too much even for
a man of Mr. Hoxie's mind and pby
fliqne and he brcke down under it be
yond the potsibiiity of recovery. He
was an able and quick executant,
man thoroughly and well equipped
for railroad management, faithful le
bis employer's interests tnd brava and
fearless in their administration. The
death of such a man is a loss to the!
country and one not easily made up,
because it takes years of experience
and special qualities of mind to make
such a leader among men.
It is the habit just now with cer
tain Southern newspapers to keep up
a cry of Northern capital, as if all our
present prosperity was due to it and
to the labors alone of enterprising
and far seeing Northern men. While
it will not deny, as it cannot, the aid
and encouragement of such men as
Mr. CP. Huntington, who has done
mora for the Booth, this part especial
ly, than all other Northern men put
together, and haa done his work
judiciously and well, the Appsal wilj
insist, with the lessons in this State,
and in Alabama, and in Virginia be
fore tbe public, that the vast bulk of
our prosperity since 1865 is due to
men amongst us, whose sagacity and
enterprise male secure, sure and
safe places for Northern capital. The
lamented Maj. Peters, J. G. Neely,
Col. Ensley, Napoleon Hill, H. M.
Neely, Col. Rocker, Noland Fontaine,
"Jim" Smith, S. H. Brooks and their
associates are among the Southern
men to whom Birmingham, Ala., is
largely indebted for its rapid growth.
A.S. Colyar, of Nashville, and O. M.
McGhee, of Knoxviile, and their as
sociates, have done wonders in build
ing up great enterprises in Middle and
East Tenses, ee, and Mr. Paoe of Rich
mond, Va , is a leading spirit, as was
Gen. Mahone some yean ago, in that
section of the South. Then there is
Mr. Plant, pres ident of the Southern
Express Comp any, who has been inti
mately identifl ed with the South for
thirty or more year. To him Florida
and Southwest Georgia are under last
ing obligations for tbe rapid constrict
iion of a railr cad system, nearly 1200
miles in extern t, that has induced and
aided a marv elously rapid develop
ment of the " Flewery Land." These
are a few amo ng the men tbe South
must rememb er as among tbe moat
enterprising of her own citizens and
as largely infla encing her greateatand
most proniaDie enterprises.

The day opened warm and cloudy. At
noon tbe clouds broke away, and the
temperature was uncomfortably warm.
The work done was as a whole below
tbe averag. Seven braces were run
in tbe derby today. The first brace
was Memphis and A vent kennel's Nat
Goodwin against B. F. Wilson's Fred
W. The heat was one of tbe best of
the day; the dogs were equal in style
but Fred W. was the wider ranger.
Nt Goodwin made tbe most points on
birds bat lost the heat by a chase.
They were down one hour and six
minutes. Rapid and Hari Karl was
the next brace run. The heat was a
very slow and tiresome one, very little
work being done; Hari Kari won.
Hector and Hasting Hannah were
run next. This heat was much better
than the last. Tbe setter Hustling
Hannah outranged the pointer and
won. Swatara and Dan Noble was
the next braca. Tbe heat was a very
good one but did not rate first class.
Seataia outranged Dan Noble, but in
speed tbey rated about equal. Swa
tara did the better work on birda and
won. The next braca was Kej
stone and Oassio. Cassio was fully
equal in speed to Keystone and a bet
ter ranger. Keystone did more work
on birds and won. Bride and Rue II
were the next pair. Bride did some
good work, and bad the heat in hand
troin the start and won. Mauis and
Roi B. were tbe next to start. This
waa a very long heat, lasting very
nearly three hours, and a close one,
but Mania did some bad work at one
lime which destroyed her cbaocea to
win. Thia waa the uilch that was
bicked for $250 to beat anything in
the derby, and wjs accepted by tbe
Memphis and Avent Kennel. Tbe
next heat was between Dalnn and Allie

Bloomington (III.) rpeiial says: Ap
plication lor a superstar as m lQe case
of Cpies, Parsons and their convicted
fel'ow anarchists was made to Justice
Scott, of the Illinois Supreme Court,
this afternoon, by Lonard Swett and
Capt. B ack. Their brief of 150 pages
and their bulky record of the trial,
consisting of 8.00 type written pages,
were submitted without oral argu
ment It waa the intention of Messrs.
Solomon and Zeieler to accompany
Mr. Swett and Capt Black here, bnt
as there waa little or nothing to do
but make the application and submit
tbe record, it waa considered not at all
necessary for them to come. Justice
Scott waa In bis room and apparently
not greatly surprised to receive the
call. Tbe Justice is a white haired,
tall, sttalght and venerable gen
tleman, net greatly unlike in ap
pearance to Henry Clay aa his p r
traits represent him. He is quite
nervous on occasions of more thin
ordinary importance, and showed that
characteristic thia afternoon while tbe
counsel were applying for the super
sedeas. Upon entering the room Mr.
Swett greeted J as tics Scutt, as did
also Capt. Black, and both were in
vited to take seats. Mr. Swett then
annoanced the object of h: i call, and
Justice Scott replied that he supposed
tbey were free to make ti e applica
tion to any one of the Snpr me Court
Justices. Counsel for the unarchista
paid Justice Scott tbe oom( liment of
aaying that tbey had dec. led to ap
ply to blm, being quite certnin that he
would look carefully into Ine record
of the case and give tbe vsknment of
errors their juBt and proper weight in
law as he was so folly coc petentto
do. lhey not only hope i, but be
lieved that an examlnatiia ot tbe
record would convince hi n that a
supersedeas should be grant d, to the
end tbat the defendants might
have the question of having
a new trial pawed unon
by - the Supreme Con t af.er
doe presentation of the errors assigned
bad been made. Tbey t aid the record
was at the hotel, and thsy had pre
pared a brief to bt eubmliteo with it.
Both would be laid before him at any
time ha might designate. Justice
Scott asked Mr. Swe.t how long be
and Capt. Black intended to remain
in town, and he replied tbat be would
await his pleasure. Justice Scott then
(aid he would receive tbe brief and
give them an immediate examination.
Thereupon Capt. Black and Mr. Swett
returned to tbe hotel, and a few min
utes later went again to Justice Scott's
room, followed by two porters carrying
between them the trunk containing
the 8000 page record. After unpack
ing it in Jos' ice Scott'l presence Capt.
Black and Mr. Swett banded him the
brief and made I few explanations aa
to the points of error olaimed, and
bow lhey could ba most erpeditioualy
examined. No oral argument was
made. It is understood another inter
view will be held with him tonight.
Nothing will be done tonight in the
matter of considering tha application
by Judge Scott. He will begin work
tomorrow upon the 'consideration of
the testimony, and will work upon it
steadily and rapidlv as possible until
the end. It is understood tbat there
will' be no oral argument. It seems
apparent tbat no cons'ssioa will be
reached for a number ef days.

disclaiming being anarchists or com
munislB, as tbey undertUod thoee
terms, the speakers vehen entiy de
nounced the verdict in tue anarchist
trial, and demanded a coir mutation
of the sentence. The btlicf was as
serted that if the condemned men
were sent to the penitentiary now,they
would in tha near futui be fully
pardoned. All the rneakera declured
that tbe 25,000 votes caa- for the

test against the verdict. It was de

article exposing ,a well laid plan of
Unban sharpers to swlnaie gouiDie
Philadelpbians. It Is supposed they
have reaped a rich harvest. Ihe plan
of procedure adopted by the swindler
waa to write to his intended victim
representing himself aaa prisoner in
the Roval orison. Havana, and
offering to reveal to him ' the
pot where $415,000 was buried
in a glass jar on tbe out
skirts of New Orleans. He obtained
th's money, be said, opon drafts on
a New Orleans bank, and hearing that
he would be arrested, be buried it.
He offered to dUclcse the place of
burial and allow tha nars n addnwsed
one-quarter of the amount, $ 103,000. if
be would endeavor to obtain tbe
writer's liberty. After iscelvlng a
reply from his victim.be would again
write, enclosing what purported to be
an official codv of an order of
tbe Court refusing hie permission to
nave "is Digeags nnlars ne aeposueu
with the Court tisrvi as security for
the safe return of trie same. As the
ba?aage contained the plan of tbe
location of the h d ten money, and as
be bad not tbe $1500 to deposit aa se
curity, be thus gave in opportunity
for his victim to volunteer to
end that amount ol money to Ha'
vans. Tbe Record averts tbat a nam
ber of persons have been victlm'zed.
