betwoen tho lato Francis Wharton, who

might full, like Lucifer, 'from morn to

HAYWOOD VS. PHELAN.
The Hon. John Allison Points Out Some
Errors In Phelun's History.
From the Knoxvllto Tritium-.
llio Inlmnt, bus been shown a leuur
written by the Hon. John Allison to a
friend in this city, and though it was not
written for pnblicntion, its contents nro oi
such n nature that wo niako no apology
for printing It. The letter refers to a
inHtler in which all Tennessenns, particu
larly nil Fast TenncKseans, w ill feel an in
terest. Hero ia tho letter:
Youaskiuo whether 1 bavo read Pho-

In answer I suy that I bnvo read it, and
that part of it which covers tho same
icriod embodied in Haywood's History of

is tho text, Plielan the context I liko

"text" and "context." (i. e. llavwood
nud ITiulau) will diw-loso tlio fact that
Mr. Phuhin has omitted miinv nnd honor
tant facts, which I think Tenuciweuiis
would l proud of, and bavo a right to
have stilted in connection with those re

mutters, as fact, which aro mere infer

Southern brethren have roapod tho ail

applies also to tho machinery in the mines
and mode of opening, handling, facilities

of vears, some of the best located and best

Tho belief is general among railroad
men that in case Mr. J. S. Ieeds, chair
man of tho Transcontinental Association,
docs not accept tho chairmanship of the
Trans-Missouri Association, Mr. M. I.
Sargent, general freight agent of tho Kan
sas City, Fort Scott tfc Memphis ltouto,
will bo prevailed upon to accept It. It is
said that tho appointment was flrst offered
to Mr. Sargent, but that ho positively de
clined unless it was made for a long time.
This tho presidents could not ngreo to.
Tho new association which is to have its
headquarters in Kaunas City is tho most
important of all tho nsM-x-iatiotis created
by the InterHluto or President's agreement.
Its object is to mnke rates from this terri
tory to and through the territory of tho
oilier associations, and its boundary lines
are as follows: From New Orleans north
along the Mississippi Itiver to St. Louis;
tbenoo to Kansas City along tho line of
tho Missouri I'aei fie liailwav; thence north
and west along tbo Missouri Itiver lo Mon

Acting Chairman Sargent bus sent nut
a requeat for an early rate meeting and it
is very prolmblo thut it will be held at
Kansas City next week, st which time per
