The Open Letter Club, of NuHlivillu and

by Senator Ktiaiis, of Iotiieiaiia, entitled
"lUco Antnoniain," which appeared In
Jhf f or ii in, and was for aoino weeds the
anbjiH't of newapnKr criticism and coo

of the Vandnrbilt University, agrees
with Dr. UtyipMHl, and a.iys that
"rvlitflon and eduentinn arn the only
two factors tbtit enter Into tho prob

and provldo the other." rmtinn tho ballot
in tho haitiU ol the imgro hn thinks was a
mmp'ete blunder, "but in the hands of
Providence it will yet provo to have beeu
a consummate wimlotn," and that it is the
duty of the American people to prupnre
the iM'uro for the projior ue and arpn-cia
tlon of rllisrnrhln. Irof. ChsrUs Foster

"if there be a Dmne Provideneo, iiunvI

M. IVtikner, of TU Winclutlrr Vm.x-,01,

"that education will relieve tlio Soutli of

A COS VERT.
TIlNhopJohu P. Newman stands by bis ad
dfess made to tho Virginia Confercttco of
the Northern Mothodist Church, lsjtt Feb
ruary, iu tho course of which bo said that
the "purest American blood was to 1)
found in tlio South, and bo did not know
but the people of the South ought to thank
(iod they bud been south of tho Potomse.
Tho North would have to ungitgo in a death
grapple with tho foreign element, which
was fust domination f.egislutures and mu
nicipalities, and it might bo tliut tho South
would have to march forth in defense of
the dcaicit national institutions from
foreign encroachment." In response
In 1Uf ( hitihrtun AVmj oiid Cour'ur, which
coiigrutiilutod him on the chungn of
heart, thus cvldoneod, the bishop
said in a recent letter that w hat ho said at
tho Virginia Conference had no roferenco
to the past, but to tho future. "You huvo
tho ruco question lo settle as to the w hites
and blacks," he ssys; "wo have the raco
question to settle as to tho Amorlcan born
uud tho foreign born. With you it is
question with your own peoplo; with us,
1. is the North itgnin.it all Kurope. You
have the cnnicst task. The South lias not
been overrun by foreigners indifferent to
our institutions. This Is wliut I meant by
Ihu 'purest American blood was to bu
found in tbe South,' and that bocauso
of this 'it might bo that the Hotitli
would bavo to march forth In do
fenso of our destest iuilitutlons.' "
Now let the P.ishop turn to tho iieople of tbe
North and toll them Hist they niunt work
out their problem In their own way, and
that tho South must bo permitted to work
out theirs in their way, and he will occupy
au imprcitniibly conslxtout position. It is
work of time, pstlence and education on
both aides and must not bo Interfered with
In anything liko a propagandist spirit, if
even a measurable success is lo bo attained
lo iu a generation.
Fbo4 7 ht Vr York tuM we learn
that Dr. Charles G. Currier, ol tlmt city,
bos been making some careful tests of

certain favoring conditions." The "sponge

THE LAXD TAX QUESTION IN
In South Germany the land question Is
beginningto bo aeltutod on much the same
lines as in Ireland, and in England Henry
Cieorgo is revolutionising all political par
ties by the advocacy of bis single tax Idea.
In Birmingham, Where he had a great re
ception, the way was prepared for him by
tho circulation of a oirculur in which it
was declared that
The rlebent ntcu sro'lhoaewho dnaiM labor and
never did labor. And, by private ownership ol
land, their wualth laareurol in aurh a manner Unit
It deneuuda from seiterutlou to seiieratluu, audijoca

they did wake, they would wuke only to encum

Tbe true, aud the only true theory of a nation, Is
thai the mil bdniiini to it la pcriietulty, and on
never bo alienated from Ik and Ibal bs who will

Stute tenant, paylna the rant to tbe nation for tbs
bcuelit of the whole ooinmunlly. When our aocial

but not till then, will labor reap Iu natural re
ward. Everywhere . la tbe three Kingdoms
these are among tho growing convictions,
oven with tho great middle class, which
embraces the tradesmen, manufacturers,
bankers and the professional classes, and
this is thn result of a grasping and grind
ing landlordism which thoro represents
a verv small minority of the population,
which has grown Immensely rich by
oppressing the other claiwes, and in the
cities escciitlly by tho evasion of taxes.
Prof. Stuart, of Cumbridge University;
Dr. Clark, of Caithness, and Mr. Angus
Sutherland, of StillierlundHbire, all Mem
bers of Parliament, and many members of
County Councils, were among Mr. George's
supportcrs,and the great preacher, I r. Par
ker, Indorsed him in an ablo sermon
and several Congregational churches in
1-ondon were opened to him in which to
address audiences usually as largo as they
could hold. Mr. Georgo bus spoken al
most every day and is programmed for
every duy until Juno to speak in lha largo
manufacturing cities of England and Scot
land, which ho bus not yet visited. About
tho middle of June ho ia to speak in Paris,
whero ho Is assured of an Immense uiiim
of anxious converts. He is thus In great
request every where and the land tux
question bids fair to sweep over Kurope
sud chnngo tho wholo faco of things.
The abuses of tho tax power la London
uud others of tho cities of Great Itrlllsn
brought out by Georgo'a presence, and as
a result of tho sgitatiou of the question of
taxes has oiiuulhI even some of the Tory
landlord class, aud more thao ono of them
has admitted that a reform la needed oven
more sweeping than tho now county gov
ernments are proving to bo aa a
measure, ol aelf-governmmiL And bo
at des ibis, leading politicians on the
Lilicral sido freely express tho opinion
that at the next general olectlou the
single-tax dintriuo will bsve to betaken
up by them In order to achieve stic
fT'M, In tho meantime the various land
acts now being enforced iu Ireland are
educslmg the peoplo to the belief that
anything in the direction of land reform is
within tho power of the government and
tho reach ol the people.
Is Turns nothing new under the sun?
Is there nothing tho Chltiejo have not
anticipated? Here we have Minister
lH'iiby telling us this morning thai a tax
system, very liko that proposed by Henry
George, obtains at this day in China.
Mr. iHmby aitrribcs tho pcrmaueney of
the Government and the tranquility and
contentment of the Chinese race to the
absence of tax burdens.
Jt isii Wai .lack, of the United Slates
Court, New Y'oik, has decided that the
streets of cities are post Mads, and aa such

Tho hotel never iuclosod within its walls
a gayer assemblage of people,
Kvury entrance, corridor, nook and cor

stoop on Shelby slroot to tho recess In
which champagne punch flowed freely,
allowed unmistakable evidences of arlislic
taste ia the decorations and arrangement.
The corridors lesding to the ballroom
and parlors were lighted liberally, and
from tho coiliugs wero suspended aoino

canary, which -

Tho groat dining hull of the hotel was
uw.l as the ballroom. The orchestra of
twenty musicians which furnished the
niUHic for thodsnrors, occupied smplo space
behind aa ornstnonlal scrocu of palms
and evergreens banked high. The mono
gram "T. C." was besutilully wrought in
tho center of this screen In bright pink
roues, and carnations, which contrasted
strikingly with the dark green back
ground. In each window ol this great
room wero placed choice plants, thruugh
son, raiu winds swupt
and cooled the hosted ballroom.
Tho floor of the ballroom was never in
more perfect poliah and the glad exclama
tions from tho dancers betrayed their evi
dent pleasure. A pretty 'dancing pro
gram of . fourteen members was arranged
and was carried by each and every dancer,
but tho lurgo crowd and tho cagerncM ol
the dancers prevented engagements from
being carried out. From tlio beat ol tho
ballroom tho dancers caenpod to the
lurgo and beautiful reception room
which, with its uiugn'fiocnt liorol decora

A Large Audience Greets ths Distin

Hon. Casey Young-The Mall Carriers
The Opera-house was prelly well filled
last night with a select audience to hear
the lecture of tho Hon. S. b. Cox, of Now
York, who is on a tour of tho South. The
stage was handsomely decorated, and Mr.
Cox appeared to be in excellent health and
About 8:20 o'clock p.m. tho Hon. Casey
Young arose, and introducing Mr. Cox,
eulogized him as being ono of the most
eminent statesmen, one of the most gifted
orators, ono of the most profound thinkers
and scholarly gentlemen of the nation, and
one who was and should be particularly
dear to the people of tbe South. For twenty-five
years, during days of darkness and
depression, he stood boldly nnd bravely np
for the ri id) Is of the South, and when this
section was assailed by enemies, there was
always one ready to raise bis voice in de
fense of this people. Mr. Young concluded
the Introduction by asking those present
to do as bo had 'done long ago. take
tbe distinguished visitor to their hearts.
Mr. Cox's subject was "The Tenth
Muse, or the Poetry of Mechanism."
Grand, lofty and ennobling as was the
theme; elocjuontly, learnedly snd with
marked ability as it was bandied, the dif
ficulties and perplexities which surround

racy nnd almost tedious detail the various
forces of nature. The original forces and"
thoso which man had modified. He pic
tured everything in tho universe as being
in harmony, and stated that this universal
dance has continued and must conlinuo
until tho end of time. The various me
chanical inventions were numbered and
all incident or corollary facts thrown in.
Napoloon thundered at tbe scared inventor
of tlio hulling net because he tied a knot
in a straight string, "something God Al
mighty could not do;" the inventor of the
loom 'revolutionized clothes-making, and
bis invention was as grand an epic as ever
was written; Newton was so small when
born that bis mother put him in s pint
cup, and yet he grew to manhood
and unraveled the mysteries of the
universe, and tho triumphs of Edison, w ho
hsd obtained a mastery over electricity,

present that conversation could bo carried
on miles and miles apart, at sea or on land;
photography and natural pns were other
factors in the progress of the world, and
the telegraph carried submarine messages .
to all parts of the enrtb. Telegrams from
New York lo London could be answered
