Thi death of Oen. Harding removes
from Tennessee an historic aud noble
figure. In the middle part of the State,
where stress is very properly laid upon
in dividual distinction, Gen. Harding
has for a half century been regarded
cs one of the land marks, one
of the central figures, around whom
tneie clustered a great deal of the
history of tbe State. Genial, gentle
and refined, committed to a taik that
removed him from the haunts of mem

there to sleep away their few and

time famous for her public men,
for the high ability of her Senators,
who, when they arose to speak in their

nation for an audience. This is the
character of man that should be elected
in January. We ebould e done for

f.-f quently obtruded itself where the

At the Sugar Planters' Convention
held at Franklin, Li., on Saturday
last, Mr, Don Cattery made a speech
that has generally been indorsed by
the prees and people of LauuriaEa, In
this speech he declared himself
"straight out" for the separately stem,
which means central sugar houses for
large extents of territory, to whith the
cane is t3 be taken for grinding, thus
saving a majority of plantations the
overwhelmingexpense of eugar bouses
costing from 1150,000 to $250,003. This
has already been tried on a small scale
and baa proven eo satisfactory as to
encourage the belief that there is a
measure of relief in it for the sugar
planter that no pritsctive tariff can
afford. Mr. Caffery, in closing his ad
mirable, S3nsible speach, cdmitted as
much when he said: "We have
looked too much for extraneous aid and
watched too intently the action of po
litical parties on tbe tariff. L-t us see
wnat we can no f iroureelves ; whether
we can find sufficient food for our ma
terial health and comfort, without
waiting fur the government spoon to
ieea us." inese bn honest words,

Nw Oklkans Is politically rotten.
Its city government, notoriously cor
rupt, is managed in ways that to peo
ple in other parts of the Union ssem
really incouprbhcncible. It perpet
uates certain forms of orientalism that
wruld doubtless be admired in Turkey,
where the taxes are farmed out to the
highest and not the best bidder. For
instance, tbis rotten and corrupt gov
ernment, held together by tbievea and
thugs who on occasion murder those
who dissent from their methodp, are
juEt now in the throes and agonies of
leatirg out the markets as they have
leased the landings, putting the com
merce of the city at tbe mercy of mer
cenary sharks without any bowenof
compassion. The Slalti, a wide-awake
paper managed with courage and
kill, is "rasping" the Council about
these leases, and insists upon the
lowest and best bidder getting them.
But why lease at all. It is to manage
markets and landings that municipal
governments are instituted, and they
nave no right to delegate their powers
to others. Besides, it is presuma
ble that these leases are profitable
to the persons enjoying them. That
profit belongs to the city. But the
truth is that New Orleans ebould
abolish her wharf dues and tax her
people to maintain the landings np to
the highest condition of efficiency.
By doing so at once she might re
cover something of the trade that has
left her, and thus advertise her pur
pose in future to make tbe commerce
and trade that is her life aa, free and

iTQUADE WD GUILIY
ON THE FIRST BALLOT, OF THE
Patient Jurors Farther Motions In
the Case to Be Heard on
Niw York, December 15. An im
mense throng of people were tutfide
the Ueneial Sessions courtroom wait
ing for a chance ta get into the room
this morning. As before, they were
denied sdrobsion. but the favored,
specially interested people who were
admitted, filled the court room to its
ntmcst capacity. Hundreds of peo
ple filled toe corridors and t tail ways
of the building, moving rest'fssiy
through. After the usual formalities,
tbe summing np for tbe people was
begun by Col. Fellows. His address
occupied four hours in delivering and
was listened to with dote attention
throughout. At 5 o'clock Recorder
Sraych began bis charge to the jury.
He reviewed the caee at great
length, instructing the jury
with regard to their powers and
duties; stated tbe law requiring corrob
oration of the testimony of accom
plices; pronounced the testimony of
the servant girl Katie Me'c as direct
and worthy of having much weight;
said it was in the nature of things
that crime should te perpetrated in
secret, and that, therefore, the testi
mony ot accomplices was ouen neces
sary; asserted because he had com
mitted perjury it wps not Vight to as
sume that ne would always per
jure himself; it was for
the jury to decide whether
the Duffy and Fulgrcff test m my had
corroborated. The court then re
viewed at length and laid stress upon
the relations of Moloney ai d the
Board of Aldermen wi'.h tho offic-rj
and attorneys of the Broadway road;
the dissolution of tne injunction held
by Lyddy late at ngnt; the unusually
earlv meeting of the isoard of Aider-
men the next morning, etc., making a
strong array of circuuiRtfirCial evi
dence. The Court said Mr. New
comb had handed up eeventy
points upon which he a ked the
jury be charged. Forty-one points
were dec ared not well taken either in
whole or in part, and the Judge re
fused to charge according to the re
quests, some entirely, and others in
any manner other than that in whxh
he had charged on thepe points. He
would add tbe fac', that the pris
oner had not bsen put on th stand
in his own behalf must rot ba taken
against him. It was nearly 7 o'clock
wben the Recorder cta-ed speaking.
Outcide opit i'-n appeared that the
Kscorder's cnargs wa a very strong
one and tended much to bmb away
cobweb doubts about the guilt of the
prisoner. At 7:15 o'clock, just half an
hour after the retirement, as Gen.
Tracy and Mr. Newcomb ware passing
down tne stairs to dinner, an omcer
ran after Mr. Newcomb and catching
him by the arm breathlessly et
claimed. "Ccime back, they have
antaaA " Tho prnail whinh ha1
hardlv left the courtroom, rushed
back, and for eeveral minutes the
greatest excitement reigned. But tbe
principa the man whose liberty was
at stake Bhowed no sign of any Inter
est than if he was an ordinary specta
tor. It was ten minutes before the
prosecuting attorney and his associates
entered the courtrcom, tbeir faces
wearing a grave expression. The Re
corder followed close behind, and took
his teat on the bench. Presently the
jury came in. They had a funereal
expression of face. The roll was
called, and the f ireman. Henry Otten
berg, etood up aud, in reply to the
question, replied: "Guilty of the
crime ss charged in the first count in
The roll was cilled agnin. and er.ch
juror answered "Guilty" as his name
"In difchariting you from vour du
ties," said the Recorder, "I wish to
congratulate you on the mani.er in
which you have concluded that duty.
You were choeen out of 300 mert ex
amined. I regret to see that many
intelligent men, business and profes
sional mea of tbe city, endeav
ored ta avuid thoir duy to serve
on this jury. 1 repeat again
that you are entitled not only to the
thanks of this couit, tnt to the
thar.ks of the'people. Where sj m?ny
men formed an opinion you were able
to discard that opinion and to decide
upon a verdict upon tne evidence.
It teems that the jury, after remov
ing their overcoats in the 100m to
which they were s?rt for delibsration,
immeaiauiy prepared tneir ballots
They were cast, and on being counted
were found to be unanimous for con
viction. It was just fourteen minutes
after thy left the courtroom when
they had agreed. When their verdict
was given to the court, McQuads
alone remained unmoved. His de
meanor was not different from that of
any other day of the trial,
The jury at once le't the courtroom,
declining all interviews. After a few
minutes consultation the Recorder ad
journed court until Friday. 11 o'clock
a.m., when further motions in tl is
case will bs heard. The counsel for
the defense declined to outline their
future course. A point, however, will
doubtlees be made of the introduction

nivht about 0 o'clock a fire was dis
covered ia the kitchen of the Shelby, a
large, Uottory frame hotel, and before
tbe fiie department could get to the
scene tbe fLmes bud communicated
ti the south wing ot the building,
which was burned to the ground.
The noith wing, which was cut off
from the south wing by a five foot
passage, soon ignited from the intense
heat of the burning wing, but the fire
department succeeded in extinguish
ing it, saving that portion. Thehoiue
is in such a damaged condition, how
ever, that it v.nl ba of but little
value. Thehonte was valued at t7C00,

one of the oldest landmarks of Helena,
being until recently tbe only first

presided over by sme of the best
hotel men in the South. The fire com
pauy, in attemp.ing to save the north
wing, did one of the very be.-t ai d
neatest pitces of work that was ever
done in the city. They had the wind
against them aud the heat of the
burning wing within five feet of
it wai intense, and many of
the bystanders expreesed themselves
that it was foolishness to attempt to
save that portion of tbe building, but
the company stack to it and saved it.
Most of the furniture on the first floor
was saved, but in a very dameged con
dition, and the way the citizens
worked was truly commendable. This
leaves the city no with only one first

being that of L. Marx & Co."
At 1:30 o'clock p m. there wero wild
rumors all ut regudicg the banks, but
they can 1 e traced to no foundation.
A representative of the Associated
Press has just visited several of tbe
banking institutions, including the
American Exchange, the Fourth
National and the Bank of Auierea,
and has bean assured that there is no
trouble in any of the a'-eociated binkB.
President One, of tbe American Ex
change National Bank, was strong in
his dennnciation of the rumor mon
gers, and said : "There is no hing in
thiB whole thing but t!b loud talk nf
Wall stieet bears "
Some few small brokers' firms have
been ctught on the wrorg eide of the
mirket, but bave made private
se.tlements, and no further tusp-m-sions
are anticipated at this wriiing.
The market at its lowest showed a de
cline of 4 to 15 points all along tbe
line. It recovered 1 to 5, and is
selling off again. Money has advanced
to 60 per cent. A prominent broker
eaid at 1:45 o'clock tbis af ernoon that
the break in prices this morning was
the result of the very conservative
policy adopted by the banks for the
past week or more in r grd to 1 aiis.
They have been charting 6(7 per
cent, on good slocks and from 8 to 15
per cent, on specialt es; aho, that
brokers being unwilling to carry
stocks at these figure cJleil on the
holders for more n-H'gins. This
brought out large selling orders, and
as prie s fell more st cks came out,
resulting today in almost panic. The
present break may, therefore, be
credited, to tight money, aud cot to
any inherent weametn in the stock
maiket itself. The reserve bing down
to such a low figure as 14,000,000 was
another unfavorable feature of the
situation. Money iOOl'O per cent.
