THAT EX PARTE COMMITTEE
j v- Selected bj the Sole Editor of the Era.
In our last issue, in order that the
publio might see just what D. F. Wal
lace Baid in the Era in favor of ''the
50-4 measure," and knowing that pri
vate citizens did not desire to have
their names in a newspaper controversy,
we proposed that the fix copies of the
Hew Era be placed in the hands of the
three Clerks of the three courts at
McMinnville, who shquld report the
words, not an opinion of their own. D.
F. Wallace refused this, and complain
ed very piteously that we had selected
all the committee, Kllesays we 'assum
ed to ourselves royal prerogatives in
doing this. Any fair minded man can
Bee at once tho propriety of placing the
papers in the hands of the three Clerks,
who a public servants, rather than to
embarrass private individuals with these
unpleasant matters. But what outrages
common decency and propriety is this.
That same D. F. Wallace, who thus
refuses, selects for himself a private
ex parte committee, and without so
much as even letting us know it, sub
mits the matter exparte to his own com

barefaced effrontery was never dis-

the Avalanche Has Fallen and the Era
Is Crushed and Along with it, its
Ex Parte Committee.
Let Every Candid Man Read This.
We have repeatedly charged that the
Era advocated "the 50-4 measure" in
the spring and summer of 1879. We
did this from memory, not having cop
ies of that paper before us. But on
last Tuesday, March 16, 1880, one of
our friends living in the country
brought us a full file of the Era cover
ing that date, and we now lay the Era's
editorials before the public that they
may see just what that paper did say.
It is said that you can tell whether a
horse will enter a stable by the way he
approaches the door. Let us see how
the Era approaches the door to ''the
We now quote from the editorial of
that paper March 20, 1879. Speaking
of the Alabama State debt only nine
days before the passage of the 50-4
bill the Era says:
"Tennessee will willingly accept a
compromise at S3 J cents on the dollar."
Here is one step towards the door.
In the issue of March 27, 1879, sev
en days later, the Era makes one more
step towards the door and says this :
"fiOME HOPE OB' A CONCLUSION."

was the bondholders would not accept

1 Whether D. F. Wallace advocated
the 50-4 measure in his paper or not.
Whether he claimed the honor of
that measure for Col. Savage or not.
These are the two points we charged
from memory before we received the
files of the Era. Turn now to those
editorials and read and decide for your
selves the points at issue.

"THE EECENT LEGISLATURE."
"We cut the following well-timed
and sensible article from the Memphis

occurrence that the Legislature was
abused and villified by a certain class
even from the beginning of the session
before they had done anything.

at only a little higher figure, and it is
this! "There is litte doubt but the

figure (50-4), and we think as little

Now the editor either advocated this
or did not, and we ask every honest
reader to say which he did. We say
he did advocate the 50-4 in the above,

To Mr. W. W. Wallaee.
You say I teem exceedingly anxious to in-
duce somebody to step on my coat tail. In
this assertion you are lar from the truth.
The trouble is you have been on my coat
tail in two instances by willfully missrepre-
senting the Standard while it was under
my administration, and thus attempting to
prejudioe the publio against It in order to
get them to withheld their patronage from
it. The first instance was in your issue of
Jan. 28th, where you copy from the Stand
ard a small local item in reference to the
disbandment of the Grange organization in
this county (and which was written by Dr.
Paine, former editor of the paper) and place
it in juxtaposition with another item (which
was clipped from an exchange and publish
ed iu the Standard,) which showed the evil
effects, upon the Democratic paity through
out the nation, of the demoralizing doctrine
of repudiation which you and others were
preaching. You placed them together in
your columns and tried to make the impres
sion that the Standard claused the Grang
ers and rvpudiators in the same cntagory,
when you knew nothing of the kind wus in
The next time you were on my coat tail
was when you said :
"We presume the Standard thinks it nil
right to call the low-tax partv 'repudiation-
ists,' 'dishonest,' 'fools,' and all manner of
Iu this you tried to make the impression
that theSTANDAKD,undcr my administration,
had abused the lqw-tax party, as you call it,
and used such epithets as the above, in ref
erence to it, when you knew the Standard
hud done nothing of the kind.
You ask me what I mean when I said
"Has the Era become so demoralized with
the infamous doctrine of repudiation that it
cannot tolerate tne opinions of those w ho
favor honesty in the discharge of just debts."
I meant this: You had willfully missrep'
resented the STANDARD aud tried to prejii'
dice the public against it until I desired to
know if you had become "no demoralized" by
repudiation that you could not ullow a word
said in favor of paying honest debts, and
hence asked the question, and you have not
had the manliness to answer it. It depends
upon how you answer the question as to
whether I apply the epithet to you or not.
And in cose I should have to apply it to
you, I, by no means, intend to apply it to
those you call the "low-tax party" the most
of whom are honest aud are in favor of pay'
ing honest debts if not misled by your false
