IAT EX PARTE COJIaTTTEh'
Selected by Hie Sole Editor of the Era.
In our Inst issue, in order that the
public might see just what D. F. Wal
lace said 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,
wo proposed that the cix copies of the
AVte Era bo placed in the hands of the
three Clerks of the three courts at
McMinuvillo, who should 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 comniittfio. .....He say we 'assum-

papers in the hands of the three Clerks,
who are 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

barefaceJffrontery was never dis
played before in a similar case ! This
exparte Committee do not pretend to
give the Editorials or any part thereof,
but decide where they have no juris-
iction, and without giving a single
ord of the editorials on which they
render this anomalous and exparte de
cision, supremo Judges in deciding
cases recite tho words of tho case and
le law, but this ex parte committee is
an innovation on human society.
W e now nsk every candid man, and
every man who desires the truth, to

ook at the action of D. F. Wallace in
lis case. We have not, up to this
good day, had any intimation that Sam
lenderson ever declined to serve as
requested by us. We have seen him
on our streets during this very inclem
ent weather almost daily. If he had
eclined, his deputy would have acted.
Again we ask all candid men to look
at the names of that committee selected
y D. P. Wallace, nnd consider their
elations to him, and draw their own
conclusions, without saying a word
Kaiiwt the committee, two of which
o would have selected ourselves but
i)v Wallace.in view of these of relations
could select them passes all conjecture!
But now,. fellow-citizens, this whole
committee question is superseded by
the publication in the Standahd tltU
week of the very words of the Era in
question. We submit for your own
uspection without any exparte com

selves and nk you to place them side

mittee selected privately and . alone by
F. Wallace, the man who talks to
you about "journalistic hoiuitstyl"
There is now no necessity for any

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

We havo repeatedly charged that the

may gee just what that paper did say.
It is said that you can tell whether a

the Era approaches the door to "the

Here is one step towards the door.
Iu the issue of March 27, 1879, sev
en days later, the Era makes one more
step towards the door and says this:
"SOME HOPE OF A CONCLUSION."
"The Senate last Friday by a vote
nf 13 to 12 missed a b for the sett e-
nient of the State debt at 40 cents on
the dollar and 4 per cent, interest. The

"For the sake of removing this dis
turbing element, and believing the
proposition equitable and liberal, ice
hope to tee the people allowed by the Ley
idature to tjive expression to tlieir views
vpon the bill."
The horse has two feet in now, and
very few ever pull back after going in
that far, nnd when they do they iuva-
riably get hurt. '
Move up, kind readers, just seven
days, to the 3d of April, 1879, when
tho Era comes out at its mast head and
"SETTLEMENT OF THE STATE DEBT."
"The Legislature has finally passed
a bill for the settlement of the State
debt iit lifty cents on the dollar, bear
ing 4 per cent interest. Last week, as
w ill be remembered, the Senate pa.ssed
a bill, which we published, proposing
to settle at 40 cents on the dollar, and
tho bill was sent to the House, that
hotly amended the Senate bill by strik
ing out 40 cents and inserting 50 cents,
returned the bill to the Senate for iu
concurrence. The Senate concurred
in the amendment and passed the bill
on its last reading hist Saturday. The
bill provides that the proposition shall
be first submitted to tbe bondholders
for their approval, and if approved by
tuem men to ine peopie ior ineir ratin
cation. There is little doubt but that
the bondholder will accept the offer at
that figure, and we think as little that
the people will ratify the settlement oil

tides above quoted.

3 Now comes the third endorsement
at only a little higher figure, and it is
this : "There is litte doubt but the
bondholder will accepfrlhe offer at that
figure (504), and we think as little
that the people will ratify the settle-
merit on that basis."
Now the editor either advocated this
or ciia not, ana we bsk every nonest
reader to say which he did. We say
he did advocate the 50-4 in the above,
We now propose to kill tw birds
with one rock! We have also said
that the Era claimed that the Legisla
ture and party had come to Col. Sav
age's doctrine in passing the 50-4 bill,
and that it claimed the 50-4 measure
as a victory for Col. Savage. In doing
tlits the Era advocates the bill just as
we have charged. The Era April
3, 1879, says:
"When Col. Savngo came to the front in
behalf of the people they had no champion,
and the bondholder was demanding lus lull
"pound of flvnli," nnd no one dared stay his
ll,",- Hi fnends in the Mate were urging
each succeeding Legislature to levy an addi-
tional tax to meet his accrued interest. The
wanted one hundred cents on
the dollar; his friends said it was disgraceful

the bondholder ottered to take 0 cents and

succeeded in gaining a grand victory for the
people of the State has reduced the debt
one half and the interest one third, even if
a settlement is uiade at 50 cents on the dol
lar. Col, Savage is the gentleman who crys
talized the idea of a settlement by naming a
figure which he thought tho State able and
willing to psy, while other statesmen were
beating the bushes iu the establishment of a
State Bank, creating a Fiscal Agent, and
other equally impracticable projects, to pay
the bondholder his hundred cents. Bo far
from Col. Savage suffering any defeat, he
has gained through his iudouiitufti energy,
boldness, and frank manner of dealing with
this question, one of the grandest victories,
and to him the people are indebted for the
saving of twelve millions of dollars princi
pal, and the difference between 4 anu tf per

Walk up, fellow-citizens of Warren
county, who desire to know the whole
truth of this matter, and look in upon
this horse David F. Wallace in the sta
ble standing up on his "pcuifciW nip
ping the 50-4 fodder in the hiyh tax rack 1
Walk up gentlemen he is in there and
no doubt of it life size!
We now propose to show you how he
nip3 this 50-4 high-tax-fodder. Step
up pi little, if you please, just seven
days, to April 10, 1879, when the Era
say this: "Wetldnk the bondholder
is standing very prominently in his own
way, even in deferring a favorable re
sponse as to their acceptance of the
proposition made by the Legislature,
(the 50-4.) And for the sake of a set
tlement of the question satisfactorily
in its manner to all parties, we hope
Uiey may still see it to tlieir interest to re
cede from the defiant position which
they have assumed."
"The fifty cents proposition is the
led that will ever be offered by the
State in our opinion."
Step up a little further gentlemen to
the 17th of April, 1879, and see how
the New Era defends not only "the
50-4 measure" and Gol. Savage, but the
entire Legislature that passed that
measure. J. he bra says:
"THE RECF.XT LEGISLATURE."
"We cut ' the following mil-timed
and sensible article from the Memphis
Ledger. It was a ' remarkable strange
occurrence that the Liegislature was
abused and villifled by a certain class
even from the beginning of the session
before they had done anything.
' Here follows the "well-timed and
sensible article" of two-thirds of a col
umn, which the Era copies and en
dorses. It is too long for our space,
but the substanco of it may be gather
ed from this e.vfia'jt which we take
from the article in the Era :
J'lt was a legislature fresh from the
people and we believe that
a mere honest body has never assem
bled, and that its acts will compare
favorably with those of any legislature
that ever met in the otate.
The prominent feature in this article
is that it had economized time and
money and had adopted "tho 50-4
Seven steps forward gentlemen, if
you please, and see how the Era horse

ture, Col. Savage has been at home, working

he, I have argued the case ; let the

ready to vote a fifty cents tax to make the
Very good fodder indeed, especially
that "fifty cents tax to make payment"
of "the 50-4 measure." No man has
ever reached higher than this for tli is
In the same paper tho Era defends
"Col. Savage moved to have the
proposition of the bondholders to settle
tho debt at oU-b submitted to the peO'
pie along with the proposition to settle
at 40-4. This was his offense and noth
ing, more, and had the proposition of
Col. bavage prevailed there would have
been even greater probability ot carry
ing before tbe people the 50-4;" and the
bra concludes this defense thus, "JNo
man in the State has stood closer in
party line than Col. Savage."
Now, gentlerasD, step up a little
higher still, and see how the Era horse
eats the high-tax fodder on the 5th day
of June, 1879. In its editorial of that
date the Era says: ,
"We believe it best for ilie people,
perhaps, to endeavor to settle tlie indebted
ness of the State at tlte 50-4 compromise,
but we think it best also that they
should be fairly dealt with in reference
to the probable amount of tax neces
sary to meet that settlement."

in reference to the probable amount of
tax necessary to meet that settlement"

Neither D. 1 A allace nor Col. Sav-

which the Era signed and pledged it'
self to vote for.

The Era asked us some weeks ago if
we would vote for Col. Savage for Gov
ernor before the convention and after
the convention and witliout the conven
tion, and we answered the questions
fully and respectfully. We then asked
the Era if it would support certain dis
tinguished gentlemen of our county
who had done as much for .the people
as ever Col. S. had done, and here is
the answer it contains this week.

25 year's "journalistic honesty I" .
Very good David, it you can stand

for Governor; nor do we mention
theia as such, but they are men of

This is what started it and pushed it
on the Standard; the Standard
pushed down the avalanche and the
avalanche crushed the Era, and if any
body is hurt it is not our fault.

TYlio Handed the 60-4 Paper Round !
A. M. BURNEY'S STATEMENT.
We met D. F. Wallace in Fleming's drog
store with the paper in baud with his name
signed. He handed it to us, we signed it,
aud he handed it to Dr. Fleming, who signed
it and D. F. Wallace handed it to W. V,
Whitson to sign. This we saw. Messrs. Har
well, Murray and Spurlock speuk for them
selves hear them. .
d. f. Wallace's certificatk'
"Wo never refuted, or attempted to refute
or deny that we signed the petition to the
bondholder, and we did it in Dr. Fleming's
drug Btore" ; "and that you signed af
ter us, and Dr. Fleming after you." See D.
F. Wallace's statement in Era of March 18,
1830. This is whut we say too. Ed.
Mr. M. B. Harwell says :
"Mr. Wallace gives a statement In his pa-
per purporting to be what I said. I deem
it an act of justice to state the matter my
self. I said to Mr. Burney that D. F. Wul
lace, according to my best recollection, pre
aented the paper to me near the post office
door, And if he did not Kennedy did."
MR, MURRAY'S STATEMENT.
I stated to Mr. Burney that after my name
had been signed to the paper, that another
oopy was presented, and to the best of my
reoollcction it was presented by D. F. Wl
lace. I do not think any thing was said be
tweea Mr. Burney and myself a to whether
my recollection was clear or not, as that was
uot mentioned, it it nau Dcen, l would nave
told him that it was not clear.

MB. SPURI.OCK'S 8TATEMENT.
I did circulate a petition encouraging the
50-4 proposition, aud obtained numerous
signatures. I am unable to recollect the cir
cumstances attending each particular signa
ture iu fact remember but few of the names
on the petition. But I never presented it to
Mr. A. M. Burney, nor to any crowd of which
he was a member, and I am satisfied he did
not sign the petition I had at least while I
was "carrying it around."

ed to the business of collecting, especial
ly as it has a long bill against every
debtor, and can reach to the bottom of
the pocket where the money lies close

(John L) as chief clerk in the United
States Revenue Collector's office. This
vegetable has been long prised for its
medical qualities as well as for domes
tic uses, such as making pop guns for"

any it belongs to the genus sambuens

mean that our friend John Elder is
now changed to Samuel or Samsou
either on account of his exalted piety
and gift of prophecy, or his increased
strength by virture of his promotion to
that office. The word Canadensis

clever and popular Postmaster, was
derived. But McMiunville caps the

Our esteemed friend, Prof. A. M.

Standard, at McMiunville. He is
an accomplished, graceful writer, and
will make an able, excellent editor.
We do not intend to occupy the
space of our columns nor the time of
our readers with all that we see in our
exchanges complimentary to the Stand
ard, but we hope our friends will par
don us for reproducing a few short no
tices this week as they will show how
the Standard ranks among its con
temporaries. The above notice is from
the Columbia Herald, a paper that we
have read from our boyhood. Its pres
ent editor is our highly esteemed friend
Col. A. S. Horsley, w hose fame as an
editor is not confined to the limits of
this his native State, but has been
sounded over all the South and far dis
tant West. But as our friend Horsley
is now verging upon Bachelorhood, we
do not by any means wish to make the

remedy is crushed eubeb berriel,
smoked iu a pipe,emitting the smoke through

easy to do. If the nose is stopped up so that
it is impossible to Dreatne, one pipe-im win

the smoke euects immediate relier. It is
the best remedy in the world for offensive

A Great Year for this Country
The year 1879 will pass into Ameri
can history as a year of wonderful ag
ricultural prosperity, the cotton crop
is larger by hall a million bales than
ever before, the tobacco crop, 12,000,-
000 pounds greater, and the sugar crop
exceeds by some 200,000 hogsheads all
previous yields. These are crops which
belong almost exclusively to the South
ern half of the Republic In behalf of
the Northern States the excess of pro
ducts this year over the crops of any
previous year is, according to the Chi
cego Journal of Commerce, 20,000,000
bushels of wheat, and from 80,000,
000 to 100,000,000 bushels of corn.
The hog crop also is larger this year
than for years past if it be not the
largest ever raised.-&tentylc American.
Gen. Mahone, of Virginia, a recent
ly elected United Stales senator, and
the leader of the re-adjusters of the
"old dominion," now that he has suc
ceeded in gaining the goal of his ambi
tion, hastens to declare against repudi
ation, and says he is in favor of Virgin
ia's paying every dollar of her debt
that she is able to pay. He thinks she
can pay fifty cents on the dollar, and
favors that figure as a compromise.
