Ingly dofeatod. The great economic quoi-
tioni Uiathave boon ggitaUd the pasteijjlit
yeara and tLat are the quoetions that have
aroused the Republio out of the rat of
sectionalism would in that case be role
gated to the pnmphlotoora and publicists.
Tlio Republican party, the party of mo
nopoly, would bo In an overwhelming ma
jority and would carry everything before
it Tli At would be to .stop tlio clock of
progress, or, worse still, to turn the bands
back. This, la turn, would furnish the
needed opportunity for the white mnn'e
pVty. Tho negro (liHfrancliiBod, the whito
voters would divldo and tho Democratic
party would bo still further weakened,
'and its future bo made still more
hopeless, And still we should linvo
tho nero. We should have him
under real and not assumed con
ditions of nirnnco. Ho would be re
duced to a condition of poonngo that we
know is not desirable llo would bo a
constant subject of duhato and of legisla
tion, and would furnish to demagogues a
thousnrfd texts, lie would be moro iu
polities than evor. Agitations for tho im
provement of his condition would find
many adherents, and philanthropists
would make hi in moro than he is now a
center of sympathy and sentiment. Tho
negro disfruuehisod would be akin to the
negro iu slavery, and tho country would
be kept In a constant condition of ferment
by propagandists agitating for his restora
tion to the frunchise, which in tho mean
time ho would bo gradually regaining
by the aid of privuto schools if
public wero not provided, mil ear, as in
shtvo days, education wits prohibited to
him. I'ul all this, as wo hnvo repented
many times lit thewi column, is beside
tho fact that tho people of tho South would
not givo their consent lo tho loss of a sin
gle vulu in Congress, and that they would
prefer to deal with tho ne;ro as ho is, as
the ercnt upheaval of Si;0-()5 left him, a
fno man, and upon the priuciplo that rev
olution! never go back nard" go forward
with him, educating and Christianizing
him, and lilting him, more and moro and
Ix'lti r nnd laittcr every day, for the duties
of life. And this is our duty as bravo,
honest, lutulllgnnt people.
H view ol tlie proiionc'l Immediate ex

on streets whore tralllc is lightor less ex
pensive stone paving should be put down,
and on resideiico streets asphalt should
Iw "tried." Hut why say "try" when

the wear ami tear better tlmi any other

dear-bought f xiwriences of tho i.lly of
Washington In view, ll is aim ply a foolish
unto of money for any American miiniri-
slity to go Into the butittess of "trying"
any kind ol pavement.

THE AMATEUR ATHLETIC ASSOCI
ATION. Tlie award ot the contract yestorday for
tho erection ot the new club bouse of the
Amateur Athletic Association is a matter
for : general public gratulation. The
accurate sketch of tho building which we
givo this morning will be noted with
great interest It will be an imposing
structure, an ornament to the city, and
a splendid a'.tostatlou of tho energy of
tho young gontlomon of tho Association,
who, only a short timoago, coraparntivoly,
began with a horizontal bar in a vacant
lot. The stylo of architecture is modified
Roinoncsquo, and It will exceed in beau
ty, commodiousnoss, and oxcollonce of
equipment any Institution of similar char
acter iu the South if not in the whole
West. It Is vory gratifying to know that
there are young men of such capacity
and ability in tho community as those
who havo evolved tho financial plan by
which tlio house Is to be erected, and it is
further most pleasant to loam that they
did not want friends among the older citi
tens, who had advieo to givo and money
to subscribo. The ground for tho structuro
will bo broken at onco.and it will note a
grout while before the members of the
Association will have a homo of which not
only they but tho whole city will bo proud.
A host dreadful accident is reported as
having occurred in Ireland yesterday,
whereby a hundred or moro persons,
mostly children, lost their lives. Tho de
tails are given elsewhere nud aro of tho
most heartrending description. As is
usual In Great I'.rituin and Ireland,
tho cars were locked and the tinfortunuto
people, though they hud timely warning,
could not uiuko their escspo tboy could
not jump from tho curs be (ore they at
tained a high ruto of spued, even if they
wauled to. This increases tho list of hor
rors for tho month, which, with it and tho
Johnstown floods and Sent llo Are, nukes
a record no other month of any previous

Maroncy, who is charged with being a
principal in the killing of Dr. Cronin. The
charge to tho (iraiid Jury, delivered in
Chicago yesterday by Judge Shepard, is
urgent and emphatic, and it is likely that
tho public will soon know definitely w ho
committed tho murder.

When Diivid J, McComb was re-elected
President of tho Amateur Athletic Associ
ation in January, 1888, bo took the olllee
upon tbo condition that evory mcmficr of
the organization would co operate with
him in furthering the interests of tho Club,
upon tho basis which he had couceived,
provided, of course, that his views mot
with their approval. Ho desired that the
homo of the Club should be unsurpassed
by any like organisation in the South, and,
while perhaps not so luxurious as some of
tho groat athletic buildings of the North,
it should bo ss complete in every detail;
that tho main hall for exercising should be
reploto with apparatus for the development
of every muscle In the body; that tho bath
rooms should bo conveniently arrangod;
that tho entertainment ball should possess
flno acousticquulities; that Uio reading and
dining-rooms should bo p-ms in sniioint
inonls, and that tho parlors should be in
keeping with the completeness and at
tractiveness of the rest of tho buildings.
It was a grand conception, and doubt
less startled his associates, as the young
f 'resident drafted il in bis enthusiastic way
h fore tho assembled members. It wag a
high aim. It looked like au impossibility.
Hut his great faith and earnestuuss car
ried such strength that it any of them
had doubts about ever being so well quar
tered, these wore disellud, and a deter
mination to accomplish tho end that
tho president had in view took hold nl
each and every mom bo r. Mr. McComb
hud won the llrst victory the co-operation
ot tho several hundred young men
over whom he presided.
With this strongth behind him sod the
sulisequent encouragement ho went to
work with characteristic enthusiasm to
formulnto the plans of tho great work he
had undertaken. The very maeuiludo of
it only added to his energy, and no olisU
clu, howevor dillicult seemed too exten
sive to be overcome. The goal wss never
lost sight of. Ho look the axiom of tho
great Cardinal Licholieu: "In the bright
lexicon of youth there's no such word as
He proeet'ded ou business principles.
The building was to lie puid for by the
revenuo of the eluh, and not by charitable
subscriptions. Not a dollar was to be ac
cepted as a gift for Mr. McComb saw that
tlieinromoof tho club wns sullicicnt to
pay the interest on a large amount of
lunula. His associates readily appreciated
tiiis and went to work with a will. Ac
cordingly the Amateur Athletic liuildiug
Compsuy, an independent organization,
was incorporated, with a capital stock of
Jii.OiiO, w hich was paid in ut the into of
4 tcr rent ir month until puid in full.
This was dona in order to accommodate
the younger members, w ho bold most of
tho stock. An istuo of t:i.VOoO in Ismds
was made, out of which $-M,0i)
was sppropnaleU to tlio purchase ol
a lot on the northwest corner of
Union and Third strecla. Tlie lot
having benu procured, the next thing was
tho building. Mr. McComb before pro-
reeding in this associated himself withMr,
Joseph T. l'entt n, whoeo tualo in archi
tecture is welt known. This committee
matured a plan which, with proposal, was
submitted to architects all over thu conn
try, olfcring a premium of SI.Ouo for the
selected plans. Ld brook A Hurnhit.n, of
tulcago, who had Just liuislied the Geor
gia Male Cupltol, were tho lucky compet
itors. After theoo architects bad made
several sketches the plan of which Tns
Ari-gAL presents a perspective this morn
ing was adopted.
This is tho victory of Mr. McComb.
That It Is commendable is self evident He
has been ceaseless, tireless and undefut-
igable in the work. All bis associates
resdily concede to him tho first credit, and
declare Hull lie is a youug man ol un
doubted executive ability, and Is capable
ol irreul things, snd tins bolero linn a
bright and promising future. The club as
a body unhrsitulinirly declare that without
him it would have been a long time before
It would have had any pmsiwcts of such a
magnilicont clubhouse. Mr. McComb is
of llio priqier material of which a first-rate
Taxing District Commissioner might be
made some ol these days.
Much credit is also dun each one of Ihe
Huildiug Committee and the club, tor
nothing could have boon done without
their assistance. Memphis is proud ot
tlio Amateur Athletic Association, of Mr,
McComb aud ol all its oHiccra.

Two Brutal Murderers Banged
"peclal Plaint, h loThe Ai.U.
CiurtAxoooA, Toon., June 12. One of
tho most brutal tragedies evor know n in
the history ot crime iu this State was ex
piated tonight by the perpetrators, who
were hinged to a troo by a desperate mob,
who refused to allow tho mattor to tuko
the slow course of tho law. Lust Tuesday
evculng, one week airo, E. It Reynolds,
aged forty-five, aud Thos. J. Lloyd, aged
twenty-ono, lioth noted hard cases, went
lo tho house of the Rev. Jacob Harness, a
Racist minister in Scott County, this Slato,
believing him to havo a large smouuV
of money concealed in tho house.
They reached the bouso about midnight
on Wednesday night and demanded ad
mittance. The Rev. Mr. Harness was
sway from home, and his wifu snd a half
witted son, aged aix teen, wrre sleeping In
the lame room. Mrs. Harness, who was
about fifty years of age, went to tho door
nud told tho drunken cut-throats that they
must leave. They broke down tlie door
and rushed in, shooting the old lady dead
the first thing. The boy, awakened
by tho noise, rushed out at another door.
They followed, and overtaking him,
they beat hitn to death with a garden hoe.
They carried him back and threw hitn in
tho doorway, his legs protrudiug. They
rext ransacked the house, secured f 74 and
then, to cover up the horriblo crime, ap
plied the torch.
The neighbors next morning found tho
chaired b nibs of tho young man aud that
wss ull. Tho murderers were arrested in
a suloon at Jellico lust night, and the olll
cers started to llnntsvillo, tho county seat
of Scott, w ith the prisoners. Last night a
determined moli from lluntsvillo went to
the jail and domandod the keys of tbo
Jailor, who promptly refused.
Sledgo-hammers wero then procured and
the doors to tho jail battered down. Tho
deierato mob was then gJmitlod, all
howling for Hoynol.U aud Lloyd. Tho two
murderers were then ordered to prepare
for donth and wore informed that the mob
would make short work of them. Within
twenty minutes they wero both swinging
to s tree about a mile from the jail.
The following nolo was pinned to them;
"Anr man who saw this snd gives it sway '
