Mb. J. J. Wobbkix, of Jackson, is
Very generally recommended by the
Democrats of West Tennessee for the
position of Superintendent of the Pen
itentiary. He is a man fcf firmness of
character and position and will, if ap
pointed, prove himself a ccn'-eryative
manager. EU will enforce the laws of
the State in regard to penitentiary
management and deal j'letly by the
unfortunates whom a wayward fate,
bad hab'rtsund a hereditary tendency
toward tbedovil hajbronght within its
walls. Gov. Bob Taylor will satiety
larg trrtj irity of the Democrats Ol
We't Tennessee by appointing Mt.
Torsi can no longer be any doubt
of ttoe death oi Gen. Gordon in Khar
toum. The Mdhdi, in a letter to his
Governor General of Equatorial
Africa, gives the partiuulate of the
capture of the Ddvoted City, and cays:
"But as to the enemy of God, Gordon,
though we had warned him and talked
kindly to biro, that be might retain
t)' God, yet he never did si, because
his miserable state wis foreordained
'by God. Because of his foolishness be
wu removed by Gol to the piece of
His wrath, which is a bad place to re
main in." Which is as much as to
'gay that God made poor Gordon for
hell, manufactured him, so to rpeak,
as one would split wood fcr am
A numdub of British gentlemen
have subscribed the sum of $56,000 for
' the equipment of an expedition to
Central Africa to rescua Dr. Emin
' Bey, Governor of th Equatorial
Provinces, the friend of Gordon aad
the man who has done more than all
others pat together to civilize that
benighted part of the globs. One who
knows him wall sayj that "Emin
Pacha is now alive, bir. will die, bs
Gordon did, rather than desert his
men if aid does no1, reach him ii a
few months. If he dies fira millions
of people whom he hai partly civil- .'
ized will relapse into barbarism and the
tyranny of the s'ave hunters. The'
factories for shoes and cloth estab
lished by Euia will die with him."
Stanley will have command of the ex
pedition for his ralief.
Blaini is nothing if not senf
tional. Having exhausted Maine and
done up ail the so-called history he
has on hand, be now proposes a tour
of Ireland, where, with the assistance
of some friends he expects to make a
profound impression, the reflex effect
of which npon the IriBh people in
America will, he hopes, have 'the
effect of uniting them in support of
bis candidacy for the Presidenty in
18S8. "If anyone thinks Blaine is out
of the Presidential race in 1688, " said
one of that gentleman's friends the
other day, "he is mightily mistaken.
Mr. Blaine never mads such strenuous
eUorts in his life to secure the nomi
nation 8s he is now making. And' ha
will get it, too, with even greater eass
than he did two yems ago."
The resignation of Lord Randolph
Churchill has created a great sensation
' in England, where within a year past
he has risen out of mere notoiiety
and into something like statesmanship.
II is reasons for so grave a step are
that as the Minister responsible' for
the national finances he could not
concur in the estimates put forth by
i the War Office and the admiralty.
This may be a good and suntalsnt
reason to "me lad," but in face of the
Jact that all Europe is arming and
bracing up for a fight it does seent as
if he was just a little offhisbase. 41a
' time of peace prepare for war" waa a
a maxim of our great and noble
Washington. Nowhere is it more ap
plicable just now than in England,!
with its hundred dependencies and its,
thousands of millions all over the i
globe to protect. In this view it ie

A writ en agreement vaa s'gned
by both rame", the men claim
ine that one clause stipulated no one
shonld be d scbarged (or serving on
any committee. It is now cl&inu d by
the brakemen that two men, J. A
Moore and Henry Cornwall, have
been d scbarged ia violation nf this
agreement, arid that R .F. Gould,
chairman of the Grievance Commit
tee, ties been put iu charge of tbe
youngest crew on the road. Moore
also waB a committeeman.
Yesterday several men went around
and laid these allegations before their
fellow brakemen, and asked them not
to go out after 7 p.m. lhey raid Di
vision Superintendent Downs hid re
fusd lo reinstate Mnore and Cornwall
and nothing was left to do but to
strike. Ia consequence no brakemen
appeared to man trie trains made up
afu-r tbat hour. At 10 o'clock Super
iotrndent Downs was in conference
with the yardmen. lie it a ted that
he had no warning rf a strike.
and tbat no demand bad been made
uoon him. Wuen the names of
Moore, one of the committeemen, and
of Cornwall were mentioned as the
men on account of whose discharge
the strike had been inaugurated, he
said Moore hrd quit ot tns.owu ac
count and Cornwall had baeu die
charged bee iuse he had violatt d the
time rules of the road.
THOUBLK AT COWLING GBKKM.
Ia addition to trie tefmal to lake
trrinsout of 'here it li learned tbat
lruin which left Bowling Gren ltst
mght have been sidetracked between
there and this city. Tbe men at
B iwling Green alaj have refused to
Uke the trair s ou, and the situation
there is the same as here.'
Some of tbe men s ate this morn
tag tbat their committees have twice
waited cn the Louisville and Neh-
ville officials and tsked that the men
discharged be reinstated. They say
therapy they go; was that they bal
got the p'y they asked for, and now
ihe rotd propped to have its
way awhile; and at another
time they were told the
reason the men were dis-
charged was the road's own business,
and in answer to the question whether
it was on account ot toe Biolnerbood,
they were to d "may be it was and
may ba it wasn't." Tbey claim also
that tbe ordar bus been given all
along the line to fire the members of
tae Brotherhood tbe first criance, and
especially bourn and nis leilow com
At soon today a reporter called on
Mr. Downs. lie Eaid: "No freight
trains - are running today, so far, but
the passenger trains are running all
rent, ine s atement tbat a commit
tee called on me, and I refused to eay
why the men were discharged, in
false. Time men, Mays, Arnold and
Ferry, called on me and eaid tiny

Tory asked why I bad dis-
chiieed Moire and Cornwall
replied that Cornwall had violated the
time card rales and special orders and
was therefore Ut go. As to Moore. I
had told h.m I ha h's carousing and
bad ways were a bad example to the
met), and that as soon as he could c.t
other wtirk he had belter do so. He
said that he would redgu as soon as
he could secure a place somewhere
else, and he was allowed to cotiiioue
wcrk till pucH a time. V
"Wasn't Moore a committeeman?"
"No; he waa not. My action in his
cjue, and that ot Uornwall, had noth
ing whatever to do with tbe Brother
hood of Brakemen or any other or
gaoiznion. When I explaint-d to the
men yesterday, Arnold and Fenny
sua tboy understood tbe timeord
rules and Cornwall's violation, but
Maya . did not. They expressed no
dissatisfaction, however, after my ex
planation, and not a word was taid
of a strike. Tbe first notice I
had .of anything if the kind
.was when the men failed to appear to
man tbe trains last night. "I don't
think the discharge of Moore and
Cornwall is the cause of the strike. It
must be something else, though I
don't know what. Cornwall was an
extra conductor and was suspended
for gross violation of well known train
rules about ten days ago. lie was in
firmed he could not act as con
ductor, but would be employed
as brakeman. While under sus
pension as conductor hs took out a
train from here, but was, of course,
relieved from it. For this disobedi
ence to orders he was discharged. Us
came to sse me last Friday morning,
and I made an appointment with him
for that afternoon to consider his
cue, but ha did not keep it. The
claim tbat I had declined to submit
his case or any other to tbe central
manager for his decision (a, therefore,
not true.as no request of &e kind had
been made. I made the late conces
sions .to the men with the approval
of the general manager in perfect
faith, and will carry out mjr part of
them to the letter. If the men do not
follow the rules laid down dor such
cases to n bich their reprerentatives
agreed I can do nothing. 'The men,"
said Mr. Down?, "wlo refused to work
last night can return to work .today,
and I will see tbat any statement
either Cornwall or Moore may sebmit
to me will be forwarded to the general
manager, if they so' request, for bis
action. X was disappointed as well as
surprised attbexction of the men last
night. I do not balieu any lage
number of my men will be in sympa
thy with such action when tbey
know tbe facts in the case. Tho ruled
lately agreed on were, I think, fair,
not to say liberal, ou the part of the
company, and I think we should
worn pleasantly under them."
The brakemen have not been in
erosion at their rooms over the Para
dise ealonn this morning, and Gould
is out of the city with his tiain.
Brakemen who can bs found say ad
they want is a reinstatement of the
Manager .barauan is out on the

Til H NiW ALBANY STRIKE.
TLe strike of tbe switchmen of the
Louisville, New Albany and Chicago
railway at New Albany continues.
Tbe men avert that when they rs
samed work some weeks ago, at the
termination of their othvr strike, the
company agreed to pay the same rate
of wages that the yardmen of the
other roads running into the city re
ceived, and that they had failed to ful
fill their part of the agreement. The
company, on the other hand; claim
that tbey are paying the same rate per
day that the Air Line pays. The men
out on tbe strike number thirteen.

This the strikers ignored. Tbe roid

of the Coanel'sville legion, which was

wcges of the workmen will be slightly
advanced, aud when the price ol

be advanced proportionately. The
workmen prom ee to abide by
this agreement, and will hereafter
discourage petty strikes euch as have
annoyed the operators for several
months. Tbe settlement will facili

A CHILD'; AWFUL TREATMENT
By a Colored Hun and Woman.
Cuicago, III., D?cember 24 A
special from Des Moiuts, I a , says: A
negro man and woman, A. Brown and
Chios Robinson, living near Monte
zuma, were arrested today for tortur
ing to death Brown's six year old
grandson. The boy was found lifelers
in bed yesterday morning, having
died daring the night. Iovrstigation
showed tbat Brovn and the wo
man Robinson bad been in tbe
habit of unmercifully beating the
child upon the slinh'est occasion, and
tbat deatn resulted from the r in
human treatment. The testimony at
the inquest indicated that Chloe
Bobinsun had suspended the little one
by the heels aud belabored him with
a rope thirty minutes for soma alleged
oflense. Subsequently Brown sus
pended the boy in liku manner, and
wore out on bis trail toJv bait a dozen
switches, concluding the casligaton by
wasmngnim witb salt and water.
