A CRUEL POET.
Twenty years ago Henry 8. Foot'e
wrote a bcok on the war. It found
no sale. Trie publio shunned each
volume as II it were to much dyna
mite with hilt triggers attached, ready
to exp'ode at the slijfhteot touch. One
oi these books full into the bands of a
Mississippi school teacher, who fright
ened bis pupils into cbadience by
threatening to make them read it A
bad boy committed some horrible
offense and the teacher was forced to
inflict the severest punishment, and
be locked the boy up in a private
room and told him he had to read
Foote's book. The teacher visited
the offender late in the afternoon and
found him in a collapsed condition ;
the boy's heart was broke and he was
never any account afterwards and
finally died in convulsions. Our ex
cellent and highly esteemed friend, the
Bon. Win, R. Moore, is as remorseless
in bis cruelty as the Mississippi peda
gogue. After reading our criticism of
his poetry, be determined to
avenge himself and laid awake
at night devising methods of
torture. With a demoniac chuckle he
hurriedly seised two of his speeches
delivered in Congress, mails them to
ns with huge black lines drawn around
the instruments of torture. As 'we
read we thought of the sufferings of
the poor Mississippi boy. Fox'$ Book
V Mmrtyrt furnishes nothing to com
pare with the agony we endured
while reading ths extracts marked for
our punishment. We are doing as
well as eoild be expected under the
circumstances. We must have a
jt charmed life to live through such an
i , awful ordeal. We have survived
Moore's Congressional eloquence, but
If he should be so oruel and wicked as
to bombard us with his poetry we'll
climb the golden stairs make our
' bed with the grave worms, where the
Memphis bard can never molest or
. make us afraid.
The improved position end bright
prospecta of the South are the subjects
for extensive remarks by the Northern
preea. Even, as was shown fey extracts
recently published in the Appsal,
the New York Tribune acknowl
edges the vast strides la advance the
South is making. The New York
Timet also joins In expressions of ad
miration at the manner in which the
Bouth ha? emerged from past troubles.
It points, for Instance, at the perplexl
ty in the North with railway quarrels
and cuts and reckless opposition, road
to road, and says: "Ths result most
come with a crash some time." Against
this state of things it compares the
comparative quiet an 4 harmony reign
ing among the Southern roads; add
ing, that while Northern roads that
formerly stood first in Wall street are
neglected, Southern railroad Btocki
are regarded with increased favor,
The Timet sums up the cheering artl
cle ai follows: "The West gives
way to the South; Dixie is be
coming king in Wall street.
Only a casual glance over the
daily dealings of the Stock Exchange
is needud to show how true this is
Southern securities make up the big
figures that show total transactions.
There ars many reasons for the
change. The South is more prosper
ous than any other section oi the
country today. Facts abound In proof
of this. During the last six years
$1,000,000,000 hava been added to the
wealth ol the old twelve Southern
States. Nothing to be compared to
this hai ever happened in the land
before. A kindred advance has been
seen in one or two quickly growing
Western States -Kansas is an in
stance but no group of States can in
any wise approach the record."
SPECULATION HUH HAD.
The depression from which we are
just recovering, and which is still
troubling the markets of Europe, has
caused capitalists to become wearied
on account of the inactivity and con
sequent profitlessness of their funds.
The result is a mad whirl of specula'
lion. Companies are forming tor all
kinds of enterprises, and shares are
telling in endless speculative ventures
Something of tbissams feeling Is man
ifesting ItU'lf in Wall street. As
specimen, we find the following In the
How York Bulletin oi Wednesday
' The excitement on the Stock Ex
change today was almost unprecedent
ed; the total transactions beirg the
largest ever recorded, or about 003,000
sharrs. In Reading the transact'ons
lojted about 300.0UO, which is equal to
nearly ont-hjlt the cupital stock
This excited coudi ion of things th
ifuMc.'.'a tptakj oi as "nn extraordinary
m-jve-ciit," v. Li's ths Philadelphia
Ledger mentions that "the judicious j
use of 'wind' in the present gaceous
condition of Wall street, which seems
to l8 ready to take hold of any wild
speculation, has raiily and quickly
expanded this lateit balloon." This
la not a pleaslrg condition of things.
Labor troubles and reckleos specula
tion will not acrelorato our progress
toward "g. od times," but may end in
largely increasing the bankript list
and the safTeri-'jis of the poor.
Poor Panama! it appoars to be the
beet abused f pot on earth. Occasion-
lly a visitor gives it a half reluctant
pat on the back, but generally a priest
in the mlddlo ages with bell, bcok and
candle, or Sterne's cursing Dr. Slop,
could not outrival the terms in which
condemnation is conveyed respecting
the canal enterprise there. The New
York World has some details from a
recent official visitor to the Isthmus,
and the reading roust be bad for Da
Lessens. The whole of this latest re
port Is sad. According to it the canal
Is full of evidences of bad work ; en
gines, dredges, excavators and other
valuable plant stand abandoned, rust
ing and rotting, along the line of the
work, like bones along an old prairie
Wflgon trail. "The wholo enterprise is
covered over with red tapn, ind In
the midst of all ths circumlocution
the money is lost by the thousand."
The men die dally and are generally
burled; coffinlesa, where they drop;
n fact, the work is one continued
graveyard ; e'ght out of overy ten in
the hospital die, and a switch engine
takes those to whom regular burial Is
grant'jd up to the cemetery twice a
day. The Pannma canal is a great
enigma everybody dlep, yet the work
goes on. Ths concern is "burst up," yet
clerks and laborers tug away there
still, and bnrdly do so for the mere
fun of the thing, If fun and Panama
may be mentioned in the earns breath
BBTBIBVTIOgf IK IRELAND.
Ths Tories of England appear to be
determined to make the tenants in
Ireland pay the rents the landlords
demand. Should this design be car
ried out the consequences may be
most distressing. They ones resolved
that the Catholic Irish should pay
tithes to the Protestant clergy, when
the Irish people on their side de
termined they would submit to such
an infamous extortion no longer.
Armed police and regiments of soi
dlers were sent to enforce the tithes.
When the money was refused the
property was seised and offered for
sale. But the incensed people would
not bay the seised goods; if some
would be willing to secure a bargain,
they dared not. Under these circum
stances what could the government
dot Nothing, and they had to pro
vide by law some other way of set
tling the diffloutty. According to ap
pearances the Irish people are going to
re-establish the old tithe policy, this
time directing it against rend when
they consider them to be unfair. The
misfortune is that many good men
and their families will be made to suf
fer. Many of the estates are mort
gaged, and from many of them in
comes left to relatives by will, and all
they have to depend upon has to be
paid from the eetate. Ia many of
these fAste, farther to reduce rents
the law has already cut down, is to
deprive the owner of the power to sat
isfy the mortgaga, or to pay the annu
ities. The result is not pleasant to
contemplalo, especially aa we see it
stated thut in consequence of abate
ments of rent already made hundreds
of ladies, delicately nurtured, are ut
terly destitute, and have to depend
upon the charity of friends to keep
them from becoming paupers. Poor
Irelandl It is aad to see that even
efforts to rectify past wrongs causes
the innocent to suffer. Insolent with
power, the landlord of past days de
fled justics.and trampled upon right.
The evil reign has been long, but
retribution has come at last, for the
evil fowls have come home to roost
PROTECTION THAT DOES
Whatever protection protects, it does
not protect American labor, and the
sooner our workingmen become aware
of that fact the be tsr it will be for
their interests. As the labor field ia
widened ths laborer flads more em
ployment and better wages. But pro
taction limits ths area to which the
American workman has access. For
instance, in South and Central Amer
ica a vast trade is done with England
Francs and Germany, while we get a
mere small percentage, although we
pay large sums for coffee, sugar and
spices in the lands south of us. There
is an excellent market tor many of our
manufactured and other productions,
but the weight of taxation high tariff
pats upon our productions disables us
from competing with Europe. That
is, protection nearly closes our neigh
born' markets against the products of
American toll and skill. This meant
that protection, by a high tariff, nar
rows the area to which the proceeds of
American labor can bs tent. To cut off
from the products of its toil and skill,
the extensive country south of us,
Brasll, tlas Spanish Uspublio and the
West India (sUmls, is a strange way
of "protecting America labor. ''. The
same withering itaflaencs kas also cut
the ocean curving trade away from
America labor, so thai American
letters, ia many eases, have to go to
Eontaud to get to ths interior of South
America. When will onr working
people open their eves to these faois
and demand access, for their produc
tions te the markets of the world T

she did net remember why it was

recovered from her first trouble. Shs
had a standing order to draw money
from the bank in the name of Mason.
She went to Boston with Mason in
the spring or fall of 1884. She knew
F6d Ward, son of the cashier of the
eavings bank. He met ter last sum
mer and a-ked her bow the old man
was. When aeked who he meant, he
raid Meson. When she presented the
first order te Ward she told him it
would probably do no g od. as Mason
had told her to give it to Fred. She
went to Boston a year ago last
summer with Arthur Lo.klin, of
MoLtpelier, under the promise
of matrifgs. They slopped at
tbe Arlington Hotel. They re

Though the relatives of Theodore S.
Mize have virtually left themselves
nenniless in attemDtine to make good
the 112,000 he embezzled from Minor
T. Ames, the millionaire coal mer
chant, it appears that a shortage of
many thousand dollars st.ui exists.
Until this evening there was little
dcubt that the settlement was an ami.
cable one, and that Miza would never
be prosecuted. Xbe fact that tne em-
bet zer's lather today engaged legal
counsel, and that Mr. Ames warmly
contradicts many statements made by
members ot the Alias lamny,
led to a belief that tbe affair may
end in Mize being given a long term

EDCcial from Cbattanoogt. Tenn .says
A terrible and latal tragedy occurred
last night at SCephennon, Ala. A man
Km iYia numa fit Jamaa Tiirnnr want tft
the house of Frank Carter and called
the owner of tbe house to the door.
As soon as Carter opened the door
Turner tired two shots Irom a snotgun
at him. both taking effect in tne
breast.. Aa Carter fell he caught up
his rifle: which was standing behind
tbe door, and shot Turner in the right
side. Both are now dying. Xbe cause
of the trouble is not known and can
not even be guessed at. for the men
have always been intimate friends.

river continues to (all rapidly under
the influence of low temperature, and
tonight tbe government gauge marks
2.4 feet of water above the low water
mark. The ice is rnnmng very slug

anoth'er "day of Ihe
cold to s'od it and close the river en-
tirely. Tbe weather, however, is mod
eratins stiahtlv. bnt nnless a thaw fol
lows and a rise of water take place
there will be no more river navigation
this winter. All steamers nave Rone
into winter quarters, excepting those
of tbe Anchor Line which were in the
lower river. These will rnn from

here and Cairo the steamers Hudson,
Olvde. Powell and Anderson and the

made a sate landing.
