As interview with Senator Voor

one we pobliah in another colamn
and f or which we are indebted to the
Courier Journal (s especially 83, aa it
deals with eeveral important national
question?, but pruticularly because it
gives the inside view of the contest be
tween the Rupublicaca and the D;in
ociats for possession of the Indiana
Legislature and the electioa of a
United Stins Secalor. Senator Voor
heee epeaka with entire candor and
frankness, and does not fail to put the
boot on the rght foot. He know the
polities and politicians cf the 8ute aj
well rs any man in it, and aa he has
fooght all along the lines that have
beendrawn since 18S0, knows Ida op
ponent and understands their
methods. What he seys can therefore
be relied np3n both what he says Of

Tub labor troubles have almost
reached our djos. As our special from
Jackson tel's, the strikers refuse
allow any traius to leave that place
either for St. Louii or for Mobile,
This is altogether wrong, and with fauJ
miodrd people will work dieasircuel
for the woiking claues. It robs them of
the sympalby of avery iLfljential class
that regards them ai cn a par with the
dynamiters. The employes of the Mo
bile and Ouio railroad have a right to
stiike, but they have no right to pre
vent the company frjm onsMtinir, its
road. To do that is to rob it of it
earnings and deny ti its stockholders
the rights guaranteed them by th
constitution cf tbe Btats and of the
United States. The workmen at Jack'
son Lave a right to combine for thei
-own interests, but they have no right
to prevent the company from coj
bining for its interests. The labor of
the country bss everything to lose and
nothing to gun by these nnwise pro
ceedings, and by resorting to murder

Bcpoiig the interstate commerce b 1
passes it would ba well for Congress
to find out how far its provisions are
ca'culated to interfere with and injure
the commerce of the country. Kail
road supervision is admitted, even by
the leading railroad men, to be essen.
tial, not only to commerce, but for tho
safety of the roads one from the other.
The only question is how best to a?
camplish there purposes. It cannot b
done by forcing arbitrary rat
and compelling the roads to
charge pro rata for short as for loog

iiuuiB, or vice versa, ixing cams are
the remunerative part bf the business,
and local rates on the same basis
would ruin any company in the coun
try. Oa the other hand, through
rates on the average local basis would
rain the Western farmer and South
em planter, who could not possibly
pay them. The result of such freight
chargos would be that wheat would
become a drasr ard cotton would ba
confined to tbe local spinners in the
Southern States. Lands would conse
quently decrease in valua, and wide-
spreai ruin won.u toilow. Tha truth
is, that the railroad business is
more and more every year
sdjnatirg itself to the iocreassd de
mands cf the public, and has already
done a vast work by enabling the
western Jarnior to i-n'p Jus grain to
E urope at ooinpeting and rtmunera
tive press, and the Southern planter
to find a ready market for liis cotton.
Tet there are evils to be corrected and
others to be guarded againht. There
fore the necessity for a Railroad Com
mission, with power not to prevent
pooisor tnoct ruin by putting IccjI
and torongh rates on the same basis,
dui to prevent discrimination and
combinations nf roads against roads
to ine injury ci me public .
Is answer to "Tax Payer," the Ap
hal bai to say that the water ques
tion has been Battled. It was eeUled,
nd dcff.iitely, last week by resolu
tions of the Council pledging the city
to build and control its own water
works. An t, as a first step towards
that end, it has adopted the report of
the Citizens' Committee, which is
conclusive as to the manner of con
strut tion, the location of the point of
intake and the adoption of the Hyatt
filter. This settled upon, what more
can be said that is not snperfi rjons, that
is not unnecessary. The very fact
that this is the city's attitude pre
vented tho sale by the water company
of its franchise and works to Bullock
A Co., of New York. The failure to
effect that sale leaves the Watar
Works Company and the city in ex
ctly the same position towards
each other that they ocenpied
when the agitation of the question
of water works was first begun more
than a year ago. It is now for the
company to sell to the city and we ap
prehend that that can be done on a
fair basis. There is no disposition on
the part of the poopla of Memphis to
injure their fellow citizens who own
tbe water workB. They are prepared
to deal with them in a spirit of fair
neea and equity. They have no desire
to injure them in property or fortune,
and when tbe hour for final settlement
arrives wa feel cure it will be mada in
a spirit of tqnity and justice to both
parties. This is the attitnde of the
water company to tbe city and of the
Council to the people. It is, there
fore, we submit, undignified in the
city to entertain bids cr offers like
thf of Turner, Dilliway & Ransom,
of Boston, which Mr. Hadden gave to
our reporter on Monday with injunc
tions of secrery and n;t to publish.
Tbe water question, so far as the city
is concerned, has endsd. It is pledged
to build and maintain its own rater
works, it bai adopted a plan, aud all
that is now neeii d is an authoriza
tion by ths Legislature to issue bonda
nd begin te work,
