will bo a Been for an artist to depict
which will throw In tho ahade all former
pictures of freedom." Yes, that would
bo a picture for immortality. Hut have
we tho beginnings of such a picture? No.
On tho contrary, tho Kpincopallans In Vir
ginia und South Carolina are shuttling so as
to set tho negro apart and luavo him largely
to his own w ays. Aud all tho othor bodies of
Christians, except the Itouiim Catholics,
aro shuflling out of their responsibility, ac
cording to tho Gospels which they profass
aro their guides, and linvo acpnrutcd tho
nc'k'ro ninl put lilra apart in spito of tho
promiso of tho God they worship that I la
is no respecter of persons. And ho with
many men in civil life they aro shuflling
and trying to get tho mass of tho people
to slido out of their responsibilities to tho
negro. And wtiat aro their rexponsibilities
and what is their duty? The negro has
boon entsilod upon us by tho groud
and cupidity of our forefathers. In intro
ducing African slavery and perpctuuting
it they introduced and porpetuatcd a
cursu. Washington wurnod thorn and
prodicted that Virginia would bo tho gnr
den spot of tho continent whon slavery
was abolished. Jefferson also warnod
them, and seer-lika prodicted that it sla
very was not voluntarily abolished it
would go out In flro and bloodshed
and individual calamity. And sosluvory
went out. Hut the negro is horo and is
hero to stay, llo Is a freo man and
possesses every constitutional guurantoo
and rliiht that the whilo uiun possesses.
This giiHrnuteo and those rights cannot bo
taken awsy from liiuu Why thon wasto
breath and timclndiscussiiitfwhntis pluin
ly Impracticable? Tho negro is our burden
and tho solution of tho question of his
future is our problem. Let us shoulder
our burden liku men of intelligence, de
termined to curry it honestly and houora
lily, slid to desl all tho more fairly by tho
negro Ih-imiiho Iio is still largely illiterate
and igiinrnut. And let us enter upon ttio
solution of the problem of his fuluro in the
spirit which Mr. Johnson bo nobly mau
I feats. It us tnsko tho education
and Christianiziition of tho negro a
chief work, and timo will bring tho
real. Tho negro was brought hero by theft
and outrage, llo cunuut bo driven out.
As wo hsvo said, ho Is hero lo stay, and
wo nuiht denl with lilm according to tho
golden rule, as wo would wish to bo dono
by if siuiilsrly placed.

On the hcclsof the dreadful and appalling;

already destroyed about $7,000,000 worth

CllATTAyOOOA AND THE TENNES
SEE. Tho exccllont paper by Mr. O. C. Mat
thews, managing editor of Tin Appeal,
which wo printed in our edition of last
Sunday, gavo our renders a very fair Idea
of the advantages of situation and near
ness to co.a1, iron and limo, which In a few
yoars aro to make Chattanooga, stimulated
by Ihe Tinuv, tho most important manufuct
uringconterirrthoHoiith. Coking coal and
iron lies all about its doors and limo ia ouo
of tho commonnst of tho common com
modities thai nature has strewn about
with so Invish a hand In tho toworing
mountains and beautiful valleys that are
drained by tho Tonnossoo Hiver. Dut as
necessary as tho ore, tho coul and tho flux
aro tho peopto who, by thoir enterprise,
pluck ami energy, have laid out on
a largo sculo and partly realised lu con
struction, a city that is full of promiso
from any point of viow, from tho bights of
THikout or any of tho villas that from tho
Chattanooga rungo overlook tho valloy so
famous in tho early history of tho Ptnto,
and later acquired a greater Importance
from tho battles in whicli Kosccruns and
Dragg conten led for mastery, and subso
quontly ltrngg and Grant. No ono who
has followed tho growth of communities
in tho United States can full to roalizo tho
possibilities and probabilities of growth of
this already renowned city. Nona of the
compoting cities or towns near it can stay
its progress or hinder its march to the
attainment of a groat destiny. Many of
tho buildings, tho churches and school
houses are so niuuy proofs that tho dreams
of tho most sanguitio aro to bo realised,
and within a generation. Tho public im
provements lu tho suburbs, as well as in
tho city, are to tho sumo offect, but the
sanitary arrangements, though thoy fol
low In the lines so distinctly laid
down In other and largcrcitios and though
presently a great relief aro, wo fear, to givo
trouble in tho future. The sewers aro
modern In construction and drain both
thn street and the household w sates read
ily, hut thoy drain into tho Tennessee
Kivor snd must In lime silt up the bod of
that noble stream, especially at tho bond
at the hoao of Ixxikout Mountain, and
thus crento an intolerublo nuisance and
ono that would impair, if it did not destroy
tho ruluo of that mountain as a sanitarium.
Then, too, it w ill destroy tho water for any
of the purposes of tho communities below,
as Knoxville must eventually poison It
beyond any safo use by tho people of
Chattanooga, It It docs not render
it Impure, even now. Tlie Ohio Hiver
is a polluted stream tho whole way
from I'ittsbiirg H Cairo and is unsafe for
human uso. This was proven by the
provslonce of typhoid fever at Cincinnati
last fall and winter in epidemic foim,
traceable to the river water contaminated
by sewsgo. The Cpper Mississippi la
nearly as bad and iiuiat eventually, a tho
cilirsgrow and now once are built, bo qulto
as bad. At tho Hygienic Congress held in
Yi. ii ns in 1s7, M. r.rouardel stated that
he knew of over sixty epidemics of typhoid
fever whhh had.brcn induced by infected
drinking water. As lr. Chsrlca G. Cur

last April before Ihe fVclion on Public
Health of the New York Academy of Mod-
lyaxL "PUIuted water tusy be agreeable

unskilled are slow lo suspect, and but for
the advance lu sanitary science and tho
warning conveyed by tboao familiar
with livglcnlc studies, puro supplies
of drinking wsterln ritiee would lie much
more of a rarity than they are." Tlie same
author tells us that tho tin bldity which is us
ually manifested by all streams snd rivers
lu tli b spring is no gusraiitce of a curative
procru. On the contrary, it is "lin.t si
ways Bccotupanicd by largn number of
haclcris. The inching snow sn I the rain,

in lbs wster, thus increasing their vitality
snd numbers," And lr. Currier proves
llie corrertncaii of bis position by samples
of the wster of the Miaxhwippl snd other
livers flowing Into tho Atlantic. Hut, in
addition to this, we hsvo the testimony of
a Itnyal (laiglinh) CoinuilMi.iu, which ex
tended Its Investigations over s crlol of
ten vcara slid fortifying their iuveatigii
tious by tho leatlmouy of noted engi

Ihey could not ilu.l in tho Isrput

then fore, of Ihe flral importance lo so en
lerpiistug a city aa Chattanooga that it
should find a subatliuto In the crematory
lor Its street snd household wsates, and
that it should also find some other source
of supply lor w slur lor household puriKes.
Chattanooga ia alill young, aud csn still,
without any grcst additional rxxnsc,

or lis sanitary safety. Nothing will BO
inuc,c contribute to its growth as this, and
interested as we are In the young giant of

suggestion of cremation as the only chan

One of tho vory prettiest of our numer
ous pretty spring weddings occurrod at the
Christian Church on Lindon Btrcot, at 8
o'clock last night, and the sacred edifice
was arrayed in floral adornments In a style
of msgnillccnco such aa hod never before
boon soon within its walls,
Tlie high contracting parties to tho in
teresting ceremony were Miss Flov, tho
only daughter of Judgo and Mrs, J. T.
Latham, and Mr. Lawrence Simpson, two
popular young people who have boon
reared and educated within our midst.
Tho Rev. J. W. Ingram, pastor of the
church whore the nuptial knot was tiod,
olliciutcd In his clerical capacity on the oc
casion, aidod by the Rev. David Walk,
formorly pastor of the same church.
It Is quite safe to assert that nolthor of
the distinguished clergymon who figured
so conspicuously last night ever performed
the marriage ceremony before a largor
audience and more crowdod edifice, or
upon a couple who enter upon thoir mari
tal career under moro felicitous circum
stances. The prominence of Judge Latham In
the business and social circles of this city,
the popularity of Mrs. Latham and the
cleverness of thoir only daughter render
this msrriago or union of hearts and
bands more than a plain, matter-of-fact
allair, such as has been cdroniclod from
day to day throughout the past sosson,
and elaborate comment upon the event is
It has been perhaps two months since
the engagement of the young couplo bo
camo known to a limited circle, and a little
over half that timo since a knowledge of it

partios concerned as woll as among the
gosaips. Tlie luttor havo dealt with it in a
moot lavish manner, and to tell all that
has been retailed would fill a larger vol
ume than tho Uio of a tattler. It is only
necessary to explain that Miss Latham
and Mr. Simpson have loved each other
for a considerable period, that they mudo
their loudness for each other known to the
parents of the tnir lady, that do objection
was oflcrod, and that tho consummation of
their happiness culminated last night by
their connubial union at tho church in
which both have worshiped, in the pres
ence of a concourse of relatives, friends
snd acquaintances that crowded the edi
fice to its utmost capacity.
The details of llie wedding may bo
summed tip as follows: The cortego
started in carriages from Rosclawn, tho
beautiful borne of the bride and her
parents on Rayburn avenue. Arriving in
front of tbo church, on Lindon and Mul
berry streets, a mile and a half from the

many said, to see tho radiant hridu-elcct
moving thus unattended, but she
bore herself bravely, and once
in front of tho altar she took her place lie
side the companion of her choice. Whilo
thus marching down tho aisle, tho organ
pealed forth that peaceful, nohlo melody
known as Mendelssohn's Nuptial March,
and during the ceremony "Call Me Thine
Gwii" was performod in dulcet strains,
adding to tho Interest of tho impressive
words of tho eloquent minister, who in
fitting seiilencs tiod the wedding knot
snd pronounced the couple man and wife.
Thau lr. Walk blessed the happy couple,
prayed briefly, snd alluded to "tho Srri
I ural admonition thst it is not good
for man to be alone, and then
tho party marched out by Iho
left hand aisle, thn bndo and groom arm
in arm, and tho remainder ol tho psrlics to
tho ceremony followed, Ihey ia turn being
followed by the audience. The entire
ceremony did not occupy ten minutes, snd
st Iho door as tho newly married pair
emerged they were showered with con
gratulations bv a himt of hourly (riouds.
After that the party entered csrriugcs
