NAL. About four months ago a roadmaster
named lleury Baden, at i'eoria, In this
State, robbed the railroad company em
ploying bin of three barrels' of high
wines. lie was assisted by two confede
rates. Badeu and ids companions were
arrested, the former giving a bond in the
sum of $500, bis wife becoming security.
On being released he disappeared from
Peoria, leaving no trace by which he
could be followed. As usual in such case,
when a woman Is mixed up In an affair of
the kind, a letter to Mrs. Baden revealed
the biding place of her husband to
the Peoria authorities, and an
officer went In search of him.
He was found on the Merriwethcr plan

sissippi river, below President's island,
which is lu sight of Memphis, Tenn.
The Peoria olllccr took bis prisoner to
Memphis, and before Chief ori'ollco Atliy
he at first denied tbo crime. Subsequently
he acknowledged his guilt, nnd agreed
to return to Peoria without a requisi

en route to Peoria. Baden, lu the capac

Journal of the redeemed State, tho Vlcks
burg IferttM. We publMi the following
from its columns rellectiug its ideas of
tho policy that should be pursued by the
parly now in poe.lon of the dclinlc!
of that State :
"The lir.-t tlnly ol'tlic Deniurrnllcpailv
Is to carry out hi spirit nnd to tho letter
every pledge it has made. Its platform
is all the law the party need have. That
is plain, hlmple, ;houot, up to the re
(piVrciiieuU ot tho age, ami wo demand
that It bo adhered to, to the letter. It Is
the law of the party, and until the law is
changed It iiiut be executed. Wo want
no trilling in any respect. Our p:trlv Is
pledged to the education ol nil tlio chil
dren in tho State. Wo have no choice,
tor that is the law for the Democratic
parly to be governed by, and It inuH ho
governed by it. IteMdes this, It Is the
only wic cour-sc. No other course can
for a moment be thought of, lor the
very evil that has como near mining the
State h Ignorance. We don't want to
have to contend with it one moment
longer than Is necessary. Let us, in
good lallli, carry out our pledge, and
educate all the children in the State. Wu
are pledged to recognize nnd maintain
the civil and political equality of all men,
as astabll.-heil by the constitution of the
United States and the amendments there
to. Our honor a? a party Is at sialic In
tho matter, and we must preserve It. We
must keep our pledge. We arc pledged
to oppose anything like repudiation, and
wc must set our faces against nnvihing
at all resembling a refusal to pay the
holiest debts of tho State. When we
favored an honest administration of the
government, we set our party,
onco lor all, ajrainst repudia
tion. Tho safe, simple, houzst aud
successful course is to administer the
government as economically as it can be
done, aud to pay every dollar that the
State owes. We particullarlv desiro that
our party shall make a clean shucking of
me least lauit oi repuuiaiiou. uy econ
omy wo mean Tair pay, and only fair pay,
lu ail branches of the government, for
services rendered. Wu do not mean any
saving the penny and losing tho pound.
This is not expected, aud if it is at
tempted it will generate a gang of cor
rupt and dishonest olnelals. Another
point ou wnien wo must bo particular, is
uie execution oi inciaws auiio against
whites and blacks. Wo want both
to be treated justly but firmly. We do
not wmat any lawless clas to esenne
iiimi-nmi'iii. ami wo uo not want anv
class to be persecuted for royenge. Al-
reauy u prominent nun note nancr. in t he
eastern part of tho State, is advocating
uic rc-caianiuiimeut ol t lie wiilnnlnir-
iot, and the beirlnniiur of the usuof tho
jraiidlmr-iron. This is nil wronir. and
in our opinion very hurtful to our party
and the best Interests of the State. Kven
for the press to have to discuss such rel
ics oi cruelty ami unruansm. is very
weakenluir to our party, for it blioitld not
be charged against us that any of us ever
thought of such Instruments of revenge.
Wo have won a croat victorv. and wu
can nllord to bo forgiving and magnani
mous. Let 'the dead past bury its dead,'

The New York llullctin insists that
Colonel Tom Scott's scheme Is in no sense
a Southern road, it gives the South Hu
go by, milking a western and southwest
ern circuit of the Southern Stale, really
calculated tu draw trade from that sec
tion rather than develop It. It Is a total
misnomer to call it a Southern fnciile
road ; but mere iiamea are Miinetimes po
tent: and Ibis Scott pseudonym Is calcu
lated to l"ad I ho south into clamoring for
the very thing it does not want.
The. Memphis Appnit -ays: "The
New Orlcnti" UuUcthi agrees with the
New York linlhtin in regard lo the
Southern Pacific railroad, most of the
L'lclunond, New Orleans and Savannah
papers taking the same position, viz:
that 1 1 io South has no f.ivor.s to ask of
Colonel Scott, nor has he any to grant In
this iii.,tterof u Pacific railroad; and that
If there ii to bo a Southern Pacillc rail

Tho Cherokee Council lias not yet
declared who was elected chief at the
late election lu that nation. Several
seats of councilors have been contested,
aud no (lellnlte action has yet been
taken In regard to them. Some twenty-
five to thirty ni'ui, armed with shotguns,
under the sheriff of Tahlcquat, sit in
the council dally to preserve order, and
about live hundred armed Tiien are around
the town, but everything has been quiet
thus far, and if the election returns -have
not been tampered with, there will prob
ably be no trouble.
A new dodge Is explained in tho
latest Memphis Avalanche: "A neat Utile
trick was played ou the proprietors of a
.Monroe street gambling establishment,
baturday night, as lollows: A negro
brought a note to one of them, stating
that a gentleman at the Peabody wished
to sec him on Important business. He
went to sic the gentleman, and u few
minutes alter he left the room another
negro eamo in with a note to tho other
partner, signed with the name of the
first, viz: "Please send mo $o0 by
bearer." Tho amount was handed oyer
and nothing has since been seen of the
negro. It is needless to mention that
the first partner did not find any one at
the Peabody waiting for him. The same
Hick was attempted to ho played tho
same night ou a .Uil'crson street estab
lishment, but was not successful."
