James Phelan, Congressman elf ct of

in behalf of the Exchange. Mr. Poe-
lan mounted the pla'form. and ad
drerairtg Mr. Warner. Baid:
it is my pleasure and privilege to
extend to you ana your party tbe
warmest greetings cf the Merchants'
Exchange, whose guests you are. Yes
terday was devoted to showing vou
toe social me oi Memphis. Today,
realizing mar, your mission is to in
quire into tbe industrial life of the
South, we will endeavor to show yen
what Memphis is doing in the com
mercial and industrial line, of which
tbe Mercnanto' Exchange is peculiarly
the exponent. We trust that, in order
to do ttiia tuny and satisfactorily, you
may be prevailed to stay at leant
until tomorrow, so that you
may have ample time to inform
yourself fully as to what Mem
phis is doing in a commercial and
industrial way. It is, therefore, with
a warm sense of nleaaure that I as
sume the happy privilege of extend
ing to you the hospitalises of the
Merchants' Exchange and urging you
to prolong vonr stay a day or two
longer." When the applause that
followed Mr. Phelan's remarks had
subsided, demands for "Warner I"
Warner I came from all over the
The distinguished writer mounted
the platform and spoke as follows:
URNTLEiiRNKver since we started
on oar present tour we have found
the gales wide open wherever we
came, and found everywhere evidences
of that new lite that is givirg a froth
impulse to the South. We Lave seen
the most sat sfectory indications of
the great enterprises now starting in
the Bouth, and are especially pleased
with the air of thrift, prosperity
and indas'ry that i everywhere
around us in Memphis. I am not
sure but what it was a wise thing to
show us the social side of your city 's
life first, because we were so delighted
and amsxed by what we saw oi tbe
beauty, refinement and wealth
of this ' city that our op
tics must have become magoiflVd,
causing us to se every object double.
Laughttr I have no doubt that
our impressions of the business life of
Memphis will be largely colored by
the recollection of the flowery
gates through which we en
tered. I regret veiy much that
we cannot, without creating con
fusion and breaking dates settled in
advance, accept your kind invita
tion to stay longer. Two things have
lmpreesd me particularly during my
visit: Firdt Ttiut the industries in
which the Sru'h is now engaging are
of local origin and Supported mainly
by local capital, giving employment
to large numbere of people, and build
ing up a clafs of honest wage fame s.
Second I have beea struck with
the fact that the notion that prevails
largely in the Nonh, that labor is not
coisiuerei ditnifitd in the South, is
erroneous, and that there is growing
up a population who have discarded
such liioBS if they ever exis'ed. and w ho
are today working manfully for the re
generation of their country. This
brings wiih it, of course, other evi
dences of thrift, that I have observed
with pleasure, name'y, tbe taste tbat
it awakening for the graces of life and
tbe cultivation of a desiie for things
of beauty in nature and art.
Mr. V arner then held an informal
reception on the floor of the Exchange
and then took a peep at tbe Cotton
Exchange, after which a brief visit was
MISS HAT'S 9TCDIO,

minutes admiring specimens of the
fair artist's work.
The next place visited was
THI LEM0YN1 INSTITUTE,
where - the visitors, after passing
through a library well stocked with
books and specimens, were conducted
into a classroom where cooking is
taught. There they found half
dozen bright looking and neatly
dressed girls taking object les
sons in cooking, under the direc
tion of a matronly and intelligent
looking lady. Next the wood working
shop was visited, and afterward the
various clasj rooms, iu all of which
there was excellent singicg by -tbe
pupils, the music being of a very su
perior character. Mr. Warner ad
dressed the school in complimen'ary
terms, exprev-ing hli aircere gratifica
tion at what he saw, and asi-uting bis
colored hearers that tbe evidences of
their advancement that he saw around
him gave him unbounded pleasure.

The committer having the Harper
party in charge covced themselves
with glory. It was a together one of
the best managed ajj ird in the history
of local events of a sicial chnracier.
The jtnes's of the city were not only
brilliantly enteitaineti, but every
where met with a hospital
ity frank and cordial and entirely
devoid of cold f irmali y. O tentatious
display vi a? avoided, and the comfort
and convenience of ihe vi-i'ors solely
consulted. The remit wa that they

Mr. Harper didn't want to leave for
New York la it bight, lie was nil

must core e him. He save there is
too much beau'y in Memphis, and it
ought to be distributed.
as the train pulled out with the
Harper-Ionian paitylast night from
tbe Louisville depot Graham might
have been seen in a noMtion of deep
thought, with his legs crossed, trying
to get np a letter beginning "To the
ladies of Memphis." He had just
gotten that far when the conductor
called out "All aboard!" He had
failed to do justice to the occasion
with his "ins antaneons."
Bradley took to the parrot, when be
boarded the car with a moist eye, and

tobacco raisers living near Keene, Ky ,
bringing them a sum of money laryer
than could be made by years of toil
and strict economy. They inveeted 11

tickets in the Louis ana Btate Lottery
at New Orleans. One of these proved
to be a one-filth of ticket No. 94,552,
which diew tbe capi'al pr ze of $76,

November 9 h. On learning of their
great fortune they placed tbeir ticket
in the bands of the First National
Bank in this city, and by return mall
received a check for $16,000, giving
them $5000 each on the $1 invested.
They were delighted to find that tbey

from the Chief down, have had their
honldera to the wheel for more
than a month past, and so successful
bave tbev been that they, on ytster-
day, ceased tbeir untiring fforts. All
arrangements bave been peifected by
the different comtnit'eos, and a good
time is afsured by all who may attend.
Good order will be maintained
throughout, and tho?e not behav n
themselves will cerainly be taken to

FKOM TOE PEOPLE.
A 1-evee ler I be Macon Bead,
Io the Editors of the Appeal i
A petition is being circulated ask
ing tbe County Court to levee up lbs
Macon road where it passes tnrougn
the Wolf river bottoms and to repair
that portion knoan as Nee'y's lane.
This petition is just, and soould bs
complied with by onr good engineers,
each and every one of whom would
vote lor tne mt asure were they to
make a trip over the road and see Its
awful and, I m'gbt say, disgraceful,
condition. And from this on until
late in tbe spring the road will con
tinue, except at short Intervals, to be
impassable. I had occasion to visit
the Seventh Civil District one day lastt
week, and It was with the utmost diffi
culty that I made it at all through the
bottom, and came near being mired
in half a dt &in places, and that with a
goad horse and light three-quarter
bnpgy, and to tssure you what a re
pugnance I had for the road I re
turned by the way of B-irtli tt ard
Raleigh, four miles lODgerridx, rather
than inn the risk nf staving ali night
in the lot onis. If our County Court
does not feel indebted enough to tbe
n opetty owners Hlong the Alaron
ro.id to grant the hiect if the petition
when it is presented, it ceitaitily owes
ii to iht tnerchatitd of Memphis with
whom these people da hn-inep.
