Jodgi Mobgax makes' answer in
the ArraAL of tbia morning to) the
propositions of contest by Gen, Chal
mers, published by as torn time ago
for that gentleman. He makes a
clear statement of his case and leaves
no donbt in the minds of his leaders
a to his sapcrior s'reDg'h. He proves
incontestibly that a majority of the
votes were not only his on election
day, bnt that an accreting nenliment
growing ont of his usefulness and
ability had 8f cared for him a stronger
support than hi had hoped for. This
paper of Jndjje Morgan's is instruct
ive as showing tbe determination of
the Democrats of his diet.ict to sustain
him and maintain the party and et
well enoagh a'one.
Thi State Board of Health in the
November number of the Bulletin
warns the people of Tennessee, the
municipal and county authoritifs eepe--c
ally, to pat their hatnea in order and
prepare for a possible visitation of
cholera. Tbey calla'tsntioa to the fact
that thia fi thy aod decimating disease
has crossed the Atlantic to Baenos
Ay res, whence its transmission to thia
country is easy. Therefore the neces
sity for sanitary preptr it'onj of a pub
lic as well as private character and of
a nature searching aod comple'e. This
is timely caution and advice that we
hope will be promptly acted npon in
all parts of the 8'at?.
Ths yenerable mother of churches
U being invaded by the spirit of mod
ern thought, and she is feeling some
thing of thi troubles the "Protestant
sect" have and are enduring in the
positions taken by some of their min
isters on questions that invite churcb
discipline. The RiV. Dr. McGlynn
has been summoned to Rome to an
swer for hi a contumacy in continuing
to support aud coanteuance Henry
Georga after being warned by the or
dinary of his diocese, and the Rev.
Dr. Charles O'B-iilly declines to give
up his connection wi'h the Irish
Land League at the demand of Bishop
Burgees, of Michigan. The attitude of
these pries' if permitted or over
looked, means further independence
in matters cf political and social
thought, and endangers the infallibil
ity of the mother church. This ehe
can't permit, and (he will crush it
with a vigorous baud.
Thi stage of the Theater will this
waek be occupied by Miss Rose Cogh
lan, supported by an unusually strong
company, a company made up of some
o! the admittedly best actors now be
fore the English speaking public. Mies
Gjghlan henelf has, ever since her
advent upon the American stage, been
a very great favorite. , Her placs in
dramatic hutory has, therefore, been
aneured. The fact that she was for
some years the leading member of
Wallace's company is proof of her
high ability, and of her capacity to
comprehend and Interpret osrtaiu of
the most subtle phases of human,
character. The advent of such an
artist, supported by such a company,
is an event in the history of Memphis,
so creditably linked with thst of the
drama; it is an evest tbat ought to
and will enILt the itctive sympathy.
especially of cultivated people, who
know how great an aid to culture the
Etage is when diree'ed 1 y a wesran cf
ability who hat challenged the cri'leal
approval of the rest ot her contempo
raries cn the etae and the first critics
of oar time.
A pbtitioh is in circu'ation through

Insfesd of Monday,8o that the lawyers
may hav. Sunday to re t in and not
ba compelled to travel cn tbat day to
reach court. A copy uf this petition
hashes inclosed to us by the Rav.
(we presume) Jaras B. Converse,
We pre-Ninn nectuae his note fa
headod "Pargoaage Presbyterian
Church, B!oant3v.lle, Sullivan coun
ty, Tenn." Mr. Converse in his
note says: "I suppose that if
the Appeal nolle the matter nt
all it wiil ridicule it." No,
Mr. Converss.Oe Appkal will not
ridicule it, but the Appbal will
and does sty that the attorneys who
desire to observe Sunday as a day of
rest, will do m regardles) ot thia peti
tion, or any attempt in any way to
force Sabbatarianism upon those who
may not have any special convic
tions on the eubjt tt. A lawyer wto
is a member ot a c Enroll does not
need the stimulus uf this petitiin
tj remind him of his ouliga'ious,
and the lawyer who is not will con ult
his convenience and the di mands of
btec'ienta. The judgs wiil, we hope,
open their courts ai uenal on Monday
and proceed with the docket in regu
lar order, calling etch case, and giving
the attorneys who are present all the
advantages that their promptness de
serves. A wobd or two mare about the pro
posed caucus by tbe Democratic mem
bers ot the Legislature. It will be
remembered by the readers of the
Appbal that before the State Demo
cratic Convention met the qnestioa of
caucus was discussed by the pree:,
with a view to tbe insertion of a
plank in the platform instructing the
Democratic members of the Legisla
ture t settla evary disputed question
by caucus. To s was very generally
condemned, aud when the convention
met the subj ect was ignored. The
delegates wonld not consider it. Eren
the Executive Committee was opposed
to it Wi'h these examples of posi
tive opposition to the cancas, it is not
like'y the Legis'atare will resort to
that method of selecting a candid .te
for the Cnited States Scnati?, or aDy
f the offices of St .it?. The Denio
rttc party by the negative and pos
itive ac'icn of that convention has
condemned the cauenn, end con
demned it is. There wiil not be a
caucus for any purpose. It is not
necessary, and would do more harm
than good. Lt us have a free fight

The Women. Christian Temicranue Union

will be ready to welooine thi working people
one and all. And, as a leader in this move

cully to the working women and trie girls
employed in factories and stores. Iu all our
philnnhropio plans we try to touch loving y
the lives of those a iris. 'lhey are a
most important class. The are in
onr midst everywhere, by hundreds in
our towns, by thousands in our cities. Ws
make a plea for their work and their wages.
We ask tbat girls in the stores be allowed
seats when not busy. We aik that they re
ceive equal pay for equal work. Here we
may be able to do. but ittle, but in so great a
work it is better to do a little tbn to dn
nothing. One woman's life set right will
probabiyicfluenoe a man's life and a so re or

ing dpenda on the women, the sisters, the
wives and the m there. Each attracta to
herself others, and what she ia determines
the character of sooie'y. And so we cordial
ly invite every working woman to join us
in making M bite Ribbon Hall an attraction
and a beoefuotion to our oity. An 1 I do most
earnestly ask the co-oporalion and holp of
our business men in this enterprise. .Vlany

pleasant it would have been, in your early
struggles wiih poverty, to feel tne cnrdiil
g-asp of a friendly band, ilow it won d have
chtered you, alter a day of toil, to know tbat
a warm, well lighted room was open to you,
and there you would tiod pipers, books,
means of keeping up with ourrent event, or
of mastering the uiy-teries of your art or
avocation. And, thinking of all tfis, won't
you help the poor boy who is in your
city, a stranger in a it ran go land,
as you once were. You are gathering in the
ahearea of an unusually fruitlul season
cm you not snare a she 'f for the gioaners in

Now, gcullemen, 1 expiot vou to prove that

Messrs. B. Lowenstein A Brus, :
Yourrecond invitation to visit yon has
Inst ..rrived and I hasten to assure you th-it
1 have not forgotten my promise, lnnoed
all through the summer ad 'all, whch are
rather trying seasons to an old body like me,
I have condoled myself witi the thought of
the pleasant time would havo in Memptiia
during the holidays, binoe my ast trip, 1
have inade cortain change, iu my ru,
which will give me three hours
more time on the rod, I have
ayatomiied thing" so completely tVat I
make my journey through Kngland in th tty
tive m nute, anu 1 made a rntind trip of
Kurope in an hour unl fiftv-tivi minutes.
The use of electric runners cn my sleigh has
been a great ussi.t.ince to me in making a
rapi.i trip, and it relievea mydeera great
deal. 1 am in "plcn iul health, and will bo
pleared to d ink vour heilto when I r.inch
Memphh. hiavs the same winHosra that you

It goes without saying that Messrs. B.
Lowenstein A Bros, h ve closely lo! lowed the
