To the Editors of the Herald and Mail:
In the hunt for large game, we sometimes
overlook smaller animals. In the excite
ment of presidealial complications, Sena
torial gladiatorial combats, and Returning
Board deviltry generally, we are very apt to
pass important events bearing upou our ev
ery day life unheeded. The vote on Savage's
Resolution had a few days ago at Nashville,
ls Impressive. A decided vote of Its to 24 to
suspend interest payments on our "so-called"
Tennessee Bonds means something. It
Is a cool slap iu the face to Bondholders of
every grade and age, nnless happily he be
longs to some educational institution. A
suspension of interest means a suspension
ol Ihe bonds themselves, it is a clear cut
violation of the solemn written contract be
t ween the State and her creditors. By that
vote the state deliberately broke the agree
ment with her creditors without once con
sulting them about 1". Why then impro
vise a commission at further expense to vis
it New ork when the Assembly has al
ready prejudged the case? No person be
lieves that said commission will effect any
good after that vote. The Bondholder must
simpiy comply with Col. Savage's ideas of
equity, and that is the whole ot all this talk
in ana out 01 me Assemuiy, nuuui a coin
promise honorable alike to Slate and credi
tor. The case ls remarkably like that ot the
Alethodist minister, who, when his hat
came back empty on collection day, "thank
ed his God, that he got his hat back from
that crowd." if the Bondholders get an
empty hat they may feel thankful. Thev
will simply have to take what they can get,
and mis 1 an --iionorauie compromise.
Prince Aletternich, Count Talleyrand, and
William I'itt. lived too soon in the financial
world, it Is significant that the Republi
cs 11s, under the lead of Air. Freeman, voted
almost sclidly against Col. Savage's resolu
tion. The present Assembly may find when
loo late, what is meant by those familiar
words, au "honorable compromise."
