18 the Supreme Court a court of final
jurisdiction or not? ThotnasOu was con
victed before a jury of twelve good and
lawful men, who were on their oaths
sworn to try his case according to the
law and evidence, and to render a true
verdict therein. The jury after a long
and patient hearing of the case, decided
that he was guilty of the murder of R. C.
Jacksou. An application for a ne hear
ing was had" b;f jre JoJge McLemore,
sue! upon it beinc denied, the case was
taken to the Supreme Court. After a pa
tient and impartial bearing befoie that
tribunal, and alter, we suppose, a careful
review 01 the evidence, the Court unanit
mously agreed that Thomason was guilty,
and should suffer the penalty iufllicted
by the law
After all this the. Judges of this
Court, except Judne Turney, have
signed a petition asking the Gov
ernor to commute Thomson's punish
ment to imprisonment lor lue. W hy. we
know not. If capital punishment is right,
and it is so recognized, then why should
not ThomaSon suffer Jthat punishment?
The Judges of the Supreme Court are
sworn to execute the laws of the State.
The law says !hata man convicted under
the same 6tate of circumstances, should
sutler death. Then what right haves these
gentlemen to reverse their decision eith
er as Judges or individuals? It is pre
sumed that they acted honestly when
they said that Thomason was guiity, and
thereby agreeing with the jury, who had
every opportunity to judge of his guilt or
innocence, ana woo were sworn to give
the prisoner the benefit of all doubts. If
he was guilty and capital punishment is
rigut, thn why should his sentence be
commuted? We admit that we are at
loss to know. Already the evil effects of
such action is seen. The reporter of the
crime at Winchester, Tenn., in Wednes
day's American, clones his p.ece by say
ing, that if the. perpetrators of that foul
deed are found, the Supreme Court will
never pass sentence upon their case.
just reflection is thus cast upon a Court
which should command the respect of all
law-abiding citizeD3. If the Supreme
Court of the State cuu be influenced by
public clamor, by tuc sentiment ot men
and newspapers who never heard the ev
ul cue a iu lu.ts cane, tucn I Ley should re
sigu and j;ivc their placet) to men who
know the law and Iistvc thu courage an
hrmuos.- to eiiUTce it. ilio ldsuu is ; law
or uio'n la-.v ; the Supreme Court sides
with tilt: Juttcr.
As h member ul bouietr, mU ri:,tuu in
its material welfare, we demand that th
law should take Us course not because
Thomason is the man to pay the penalty
but because the public welfare demands it
A frightful hurricane passed over th

is engaged iu the disreputable business of
buying, or attemptine to buy, Southern
Democratic members of the House of
Representatives, so as to secure an organ
izatiou of the House, favorable to the
Hayes Administration. In this he will
tail. XI is understood that he is promis
ing all who will ote for a Hayes man for
Speaker, that they shall control the Fed
cral patronage m their districts. Ibis is
a bold attempt at bargain and corruption,
woise even than that practiced during
Grant's Administration. His letter to
Packard shows what sort of a man Mat
thews is. mat was an attempt, ana an
unsuccessful one, to buy off Packard with
the promise of a responsible and lucra
tive appointmeut. Ilia letter to Cham
berlain was of the same character. Mat.
thews seems to act upon the idea that all
nen are purchasable. We do not think
lie will Cud a single Democratic member
who has sunk so low us to be bought by
Mr. Matthews. They may find a few
euch men as Waldron, the newly appoint
ed Marshal at Memphis, who are ready to
barler principles for place, but we feel
confideut that there are none such among
the Southern Democratic members of the
House. We know of no more disgrace
ful business than that in which Stanley
Matthews is now engaged, that is doing
the bribery business of the new adminis
tration. Whatever measures of relief the
South is entitled to, she deserves as a
matter of right, and not as the result of a
bargain. No highstoned Southern man
desires them in this manner. We cannot
Bacrifice our honor, even to get that to
which wo arc cleany entitled, and of
which wc have been so Ion;; deprived. We
ru uut willi ng to purchase rein f t the
nici ilice of all that io hwuorable, and
Stanley Matthews' cU'orU to bribe and I

construed into a bign of weakness, and

WMttiorne, of Ifanry, for Sortrnor In
ib8 ueusns way neisw do re
ferred to any other Han In the
State A Orett Straggle:
in Store for the De
mocracy. Brown ill fTenn.) Democrat: It does
not take the eye of a prophet to read tbe
story ot our near political iuiure in xen-
nessee. Already inings are snaping mem
selves and solidifying into form and mat
ter, and assuming tangible propotions in
which can be seen the grim outlines of the
great gubernatorial struggle of 1878. The
treachery ot some of our public men, and
the suspicious subserviency and pliancy
of others, has induced the belief in. the
inner circle of Radicalism that our State
will fall an easy prey to a successfully
planned and a skillfully conducted cam
paign, and, from the conduct of one or
two ot our public journals, which are
either short-sighted or traito-ou-", there is
no occasion for surprise at the existence
of this belief. Of course Benedict Ar
nold Key was not appointed to a seat in
the Radical cabinet without a well-considered
purpose. The culls and boobies
look upon it as a remarkable instance ot
non-partisan patriotism on the part ct t he
usurper. X hey meet together in tneir as
semblies and crow and coo over it with
much simple, ignorant, but heartfelt con
irratulation. They do not see beyond the
daily dispatches or the surface indications
of their lying Associated Press reports,
and are rather to be pitied than censured
for ectting their nngera burned by med
dling with things they have neither the
capacity or ability to investigate nor un
derstand. It does not, however, take the
skill ot a trained political veteran to read
the meaning qi the Radical new depart
ure, and it is well for tbe democracy to
begin at once to prepare to meet, and over
throw the new combination. Key, while
to all intents and purposes as much a
Radical as O. P. Morton, or his cabinet
colleague John Sherman was ostenaib'f
an old-line .Democrat, and while mis
trusted by the leaders and the great mass
of the Democracy of the State, had
considerable following among that class
of citizens who flatter and console them
selves for havtne no political principles
VI HUjr Bull, uj vuiiiu Luiriuacircs vuu'
servatives. Mot only this, but by sup
porting the mo.,t advanced measures of
tbe Kadical party while a member ot tbe
senate he had contrived to gain this
honest-hearted old Breckinridge seces
sion-Democrat, who, if we are to listen
to the puling stuff of two or three Tennes
see newspapers, is the very soul of po
litical rectitude the united and unanis
mous support of tbe Radical partv of
Tennessee, But this is not all, He be
came the leader of the great disgruntled
the surgeon-in-chief of tbe lame, the
halt and the blind of Tennessee politics.
The head and chief exemplar of the po
litical cripples of the State, around whom
gathered the sore-heads, the discomforted
and discontented. He signally failed to
get tbe opportunity of selling out to the
Radicals from the elevated seat of a sen as
tor from Tennessee, through the ineradU
cable distrust of the Democracy. But he
speedily, by letter and other means, pro
ceeded to lay himself out to be utilized
by them at the earliest opportunity. The
io!id south contronted the conspirators
with grim and compact outlines,l ike some
huge and impregnable fortress, and the
solid south meant literal destruction to
Radicalism in the near future, and great
embarrassment in legislation in the lm
mediate present- How to disunite the
south, and create an administration party
in its midst was one ot the earliest prob
lems of the usurper and his advisers. Key
who failed to materialize for the party in
the senate, was taken up tor tbe purpose
and this, more than any merit, worth or
ability he possesses, explains hi pres
ence in the Radical cabinet, and this is
his mission. Tennessee, one of the lar
gest and most important of the southern
States, is pitched upon as the battle-field
ot this new experiment ot Kadicalism. Itl
was idle to think ot Kentucky, Georgia,
Texas, or even Missouri, but to the Radi-
cal mind a Mate either blessed or cursed
with Keys, Waldrans, Colhiers, Kellers
el id onine genus, and Avalanches, and
papers very much resembling Avalanches,
the thing does not s em impossible ot ac
complisbment. This is the meaning of
the meetings to endorse Hayes. This is
tbe reason of these insipient plague spots
on the body politic of Tennessee, and
they show that the disease has fastened
upon her vitals. The Key-Hayes Demov
crats and the .Radicals are uniting for a
vigorous struggle for supremacy. They
will have to aid them the elements Gov
ernor Porter defeated last fall, and not
only this, but many men who supported
Porter, and have since been converted to
Key-Hayes Democracy, or Radicalism, if
you please, by the teachings ot newspa
pers once Democratic, but now anti-lem
ocratic in everything but name, xi is
uecless to disguise the tact that this hcte
rogeneous herd of otherwise irreconcilable
elements wiil form a powerful combina
tion in the gubernatorial struggle, aided as
it will be by Federal patronage and other
means o corruption. Ihe Democracy ot
the (State will have to meet and conquer
their old enemy in one of its protean dis
guises, and it is well enough now to begin
to prepare for the battle. The first thing
to be done is to select a leader a bold,
brilliant, clear-headed and true-hearted
Democrat, who will lead our hosts to vie
tory. Let him be clear of record, and,
like Hannibal, born in the camp. Let his
principles be the growth of years, and not
tbe temporary offspring which expediency
brings lorta to reach success. Xict him b.
like Bayard of old, without fear and with
out reproach. Let him possess powers of
popular eloquence like tbe giants of old,
which rendered the struggle lor the Gov
ernorship ot lennessee national in its
results and public attention. There is
such a man in Tennessee, and the hearts
of the Democracy turn to him even at this
early period as their chosen leader. He
has shown himself faithful and true where
others have fallen. His character for high
ability aud unsullied honesty is national.
His services aie only to be measured by
the years he has lived since he arrived at
manhood- I rue in all past time: true in
the -item emergencies of the present. He
will be true in the future. We can place
our banner in bis band with an unfalter
ing trust. With the bold, brilliant and
able Whitlhorne, of Maury, victory is as
sured. W e theretore raise his honored
name to tbe masthead, and under the
command of the "admiral'' will run down
