The enemies of good order and honesty
will not be able to change the complex

men, put d'irepolabls characters in their
places and give the burglars and thieves
a chance at the city while the police offi
cers who would be put in would divide

The opinions of such leading lawyers
as Judge Ellett, L. D. McKissick, Humes

ef the City Hall. Bull-headed law does
not pass as the genuine article in Mem
phis, which city contains a bar that is
recognized as not excelled by any city
in the United States. Has the Comp
troller the Registers' books in hrs pos
session yet? We understand that be has
not. Have any names been erased from
any of the Registers' books? We under
stand that several of them have been
erased from several of the books.
Should Jack Walsh be accidentally
elected Councilman from the First ward
it is very doubtful that he could keep his
seat legally, as ihe question as to his
eligibility is not by any means clear, and
would be raised at once. Walsh is County
Undertaker, regularly elected by the
Cointy Court for a regular term, and the
city charter is very explicit on this point

The press is a great terror to evil
doers. Whenever people in Memphis
commit a crime, a wrong or a mean ac
tion, they fear an exposure through the
press, i No one gets offended at or fears
a compliment, or the notice of some
good deed; no one "blushes to find it
fame." But they blush to be discovered
and published whenever tbey do any
thing secretly that they are ashamed of.
No one knows .this better than the re
porters of the press, who are daily ap
pealed to not to make any mention of
this or that persen or thing; and the
very persons who fear notoriety as to
mean actions, are generally loudest and
most public in their expressions of
pleasure whenever they accidentally d
a good thing and are noticed by the re'

Memphis Tueateb. A crowded house
greeted the Furbish people at the theater
last night, notwithstanding the horrible
weather. The company appeared in Led
Astray, a very interesting play of the
society order. The play was finely pre
sented, and during it presentation the
audience indulged in repeated outbursts
of applause. - Whatever the Furbish peo
ple attempt to do they will do well; in
deed, no better drabaatio company
travels on this continent. To-night
Alexander Dumas' sensation and suc
cess, Mons. Alphonse, will be the at
traction. Mr. Boniface will appear as
"Montaglin," Mr. Porter as "Mons Oc
tave," Mr. Hawk as "Jovin," Miss Lang
ley at "Raymonde," Miss Monk as
"M'me Guichard," etc. Tbe play is one
of three acta, the first introducing the
abduction of tbe "little savage" by Mons.
Alphonse, the second the "Three Con
tests," and the third, when "Madam
Guichard places herself on tbe pnblic
records and is deceived for the last time
by Mons. Alphonse." The management
will introduce the piece with new scenic
effect, stage decorations, etc.
To-morrow, New Year's day, there will
be a Led Astray matinee, and at night,
Alixe will be produced.
On Saturday, the matinee attraction
will be Divorce, and at night the Furbish
people will bid ns adieu in Article 47.

to make the ball of this evening the big

In the First Chancery Conrt Mary E.
Grader tiled a petition against Geo.
W. Grader, alleging that they intermar
ried in this coanty in 1856, and of this
marriage two children were born. De
fendant sent complainant to Massachu
setts in 1872 to remain with his relatives,
and since that time he failed to cohabit
with her and treated her with marked
neglect, and refused her conjugal protec
tion. She returned to Memphis, and
now asks the conrt for a decree giving
her possession of his children and for an
inquiry at to the estate of defendant in
regard to tha support of said children.
For herself she neither asks for mainte
nance nor a divorce.
Fire tola Hoi-Bins;,
At six o'clock this morning a one-
story frame building, used as a servant's
roorn, situated in the rear of the resi
dence of Charles Bullock, No. 510 Vance
street, was discovered ou fire. In a few
minutes the building was burned to the
ground. Mr. Bullock s residence was
slightly damaged, but was saved by the
firemen. On the burned building there
was an insurance of one thousand dol
lars in the Phenix of Brooklyn, Green 4
Lucas agents. The fire was the aot of a
negro incendiary, who has not as yet
A Nashville cotemparay expresses the
following views .upon the poll tax ques
There is a pretty general complaint In
regard to the non-collection of poll taxes,
State, county and municipal.
A great many people in the various
counties do not know how to account for
tbe fact that, though tbey have a large
number of voters, they derive but little
school tax from that source. Quite a
number of letters have been addressed to
the Comptroller and State Superinten
dent of Public Instruction, on this sub
ject. They nearly all refer to the fact
that, tn tbe several counties, there are
a certain number of votes, and they
receive far less, in proportion, of school
fund pro rata. This possibly arises from
the poor system of collecting poll taxes
now existing in this State. The owner
of realty is almost necesssarily forced
to pay his poll tax, for the reason he is
forced to present himself before the Col
lector, who not only giyes b,im a receipt
for taxes on property, but is sure to put
one in on account of his head. If it is
right for one voter or citizen, between
tbe ages prescribed by law, to pay a poll
tax, it is right for all, and, nope should
bp allowed fq i;q scot fi of paying it,
because it is easier for the Collector to
return "not found," aHd hsv a credit
entered in his favor.
Tbe Legislature should investigate this
matter of poll taxes, and see whether
measures cannot be devised to insure
their collections from all persons alike.
