weights announced two days prior to
the iace. One mile and one-quarter.
It will be noted that a small cash
entrance fee is leqaired, and forfeit
orders and declaration fees done aaay
with. This is an improvement on the
old plan and drsuves general
adop'ion. It is probably the result of
a conference held ou this subject be
tween O. H. Oillock, secretary of toe
Witt Side Park, and 8. J. Mont
grmery, secretary of the Memphis
Jockey Club, who favors the
adoption of the sime plan here,
Aiixious to learn what the pro'peds
were for a rood ppiing mt-eliig in
Memphis an Atpral reporter railed
npon S'teiary Siout y Montcouiery,
ot the Memphis Jockey Oluh, and
fannd hirn smiling over the following
extract from the famous correiprnd
enr, Bread Church's letter to the iSin'f
rfthe Timet ' It reads as fjllows:
"I don't know but that thtra is a
general misapprehension as to the
etUus of tome of the Westi rn turt
clubs iu counection wiJhe as-umtid
aciiinbt the Turf Congress bearing
on the tiling of dates for the various
Wes em meetiog. In t'te fli-Et place,
the coagrcsj had no power to arrange
the datep, and what action wrs taken
was of the suggehtive or recommend
atory kind, growing out of, as I nnder
etand it, an utfo mal arraugement be
tween representatives of each club,
with the exception of Memphis, which
was not rtptesu'.ed. In the absence
cf Memphis delegate, thoEe preeent
nndtrtook to arrange for the
Memphis1 meeting the week following
that at New Orleans. With the spring
programme on that bias, there would
have hem no clash ex, ejt on one diy
between Latonia and rt. Louis, wh:ch
could not have been averted. But it
sterns the Memphis Club had already
fixed itsspiiag date, which wes a week
later than that proposed at tne ucn
gress. Ai that dale would conflict
with Na'hville. a clash wou'd have
been inevilablo if a mutnal agreement
bnt ween the clubs of thes9 two cities
could not bs afiented. A conference
was held in Memphis', and the
r. null was (hat the Blufl Oity
Club suck to the date orig
inally arranged, while it was decided
that the Nashville meetiug Bhou.'d fol
low the week after, the latter date
conflicting with the Lexington meet
ing. Na-hville does not withdraw
from tha Turf Congrers, but merely
declines ti he bouad by the fnf jrmtl
recommendatory arrangement pio
poied at Cincinnati. I should cot be
surprised if the dates and clashes of
the renent season have not bad some
little eff.ct on the arrangements for
next year, Memphis suffered some
what from them both in the Spring
and Fall, and I heard Col. Montgom
ery express himself pretty freely on
the subject. He said, and with
o me enow of plausibility, that
tha Lex'nstin me-ting in the fall
should have been held in the period,
between Louiiville and Latonia, cov
ering eleven days. Indeed, tie Lex
ington meeting was pat oS until after
Latonia, crowding the Memphis meet
ing into the cold weather. Perhaps
something like mild retaliation may
have influonced the powers that beat
Memphis, especially as the young and
thiiving club at that point is now
vigorons euougii to exhibit something

Dr. J. V. Who maker, of this city,
laughed heartily yesterday when
shown a rewspaper article giving the
alleged wonderful cae of a negr j man

not an uncommon skin disease," be

In white people the skin turns a milky
white, but it is moit noticeable in col

Tour strong and sinewy article
againBt a caucus have put t e fair
minded men ol the Democrccy to
thinking. The Inclosed thouuh'ful
article is from the Dresden Enierprm
of yesterday. Pleaso rspuhlih it.
There is one vHw in this subject l lint
has not boen dwelt upon, via , the
possibility, under a mrj irity caucus,
witli the ga atttehment, of the
Slats being represented in the Kra e
thronvh a minority of the Legislature-whereas
ths lw requires the
Henatnr to be elected by a majoiity of
the General Assembly. H ins are
actually urging that a bare majority of
Democrats shall dio'ate who the Sena
tor shall be. This would put It In the
power ot fortv-three members out of a
Legislature cf l.TlmembeiB, to decide
the contest Tula would be doing
violence to all tha traditions ol Dem
ocracy, aa well as t the geniui of
representative government. A caucus
nnder the two-thirds tale with a j iut
ballot of thirty six, would be a breeder
of discontent but a n ajirity caucus
might breed disintegration. It Ib
presumed that no aspirant would spit
npon a Republican ti he wantsd to
vote Jor him.
A Pree Plant fer All.
Dresden EnlerpriM: The next Legis
lature will be sailed on to elect a
United States Senator, a Comptroller
and a Treasurer, lo addition to minor
clllcetJ connected with iia organ sa
tion. It is, of corjsje, unanimously
conceded that none but Demociats
should or could be elected to those
efficea. The chief interest ia centered
npon the ofllca of United States Sena
tor, snd there sre some seven or eight
avowed and possible candidates tor
this position of high honor. The
Democracy of all these candidates
has too long burn tried to be ques
tioned for a moment, and whoever is
elected among tbem will never prove
faleo to the party thu honoring him.
We take it that, so far as Democratic
loyalty is connorned, ail thee-e distin
guished caudida'es are on an equal
footing. lathe next L"gis!a'urs the
Democratic majority on joint ballot
will be thiitj six. This majorily is so
overwhelming aa to piec ndu tha possi
bility ot the election ot any but a
Demociai-, and one strong ream. u for
the necessity tf a cinema does rot
exist in tl;e pr.ei'nt instsr.c. Aa
no party intonst is to ba served
hy a caucus, and as all the
candidates lor Senator are equal
in paity feally, and ceiually deserving
of the Iicikt they tees, it eee nis to us
that the fair thing would be a free and
open race for all. The party would
thus be treating its candidate s impar
tially and would cement them to it
hfitcad of repelling them. Of course
but one man ran he elected Senator,
and there is bound to be a number of
disappointed candidates who will have
the Byropstty of their respective fol
lowinga. Is it not a wise party policy
to so treat all these contending olc
ments aa to make them feel that,
though tbey weie defeated, It was
fairlv and ouenlv done without any
resoit to star chamber tactics? What
will best strengthen the party and
inbierve Its ioteies'sT is the rara-
mount question, not what candidate
shall receive the CMVeted honor? which
in nurelv a tiersonal consideration.
There is no party prinolple involved
in the census question; it is mereiy a
question of expediency; and it is trie
height of folly to make it a test of De-
mnniacv. as some are trviog to do. So
far as the utterances and actions of the
nartv are concerned, the caucus has
never been a favorite patttf its ma
chinery. It will be remembered that
a resolution favoring canruirs wis in
troJuced in our last Stats Convention,
and It was nromntlv snd emphat ctlly
distpproved as a rule that could be
safely prescribed. Were there the e
molest possibility ol Demot ra'lo de
feat in the next Leulilature, there
wnulil ha some occasion for a Dtmo
cratlo caucus a pices of machinery
that ia onlv called into use nnder
very exceptional circumstances when
the Buccessof the rarty le mcneced.
Without pretending to know which
candidate, or pet of candidate, wou'd
be benefl ed by a c ucus, we are d
nidddlv of theouiuion that a broad,
conserve tive spirit should contr .1 the
rartv that spirit which is manuetiea
by lmiartisl irsatment of Democrats
seeking its honois. Any policy suop
ed for the exclurive bemju of any one
furtioncan donothina but brew ducontrnl
and weaken the parly. Such: is the cau
cus row con tern ptaied, and ai such it
should be disapproved.
