S. B. Spurlock, of the long-estab
lished firm of S. B. Spurlock & Co.,
died yesterday at his residence, No.
141 North Cherry street, of a severe
case of pneumonia, his death follow
ing the attack after only three days
illness. The deceased had never re
covered his strength aud lormer
remarkable vigor since the amputa
tion of an arm a year and a half ago
from blood poisoning, to which is
due in some measure the rapid en
croachment of the disease which has
just proved fatal. Mr. Spurlock was
one of the best known and most suc
cuccessful merchants of Nashville
and he leaves a large estate. He was
born in Smith Cwunty in 1821 and
tirst became prominent as a business
man at McMinnville as a cotton fac
tor, and where he built the first cot
ton factory in Tennessee. He re
moved to Nashville during the war
and has been well-know in the
wholesale business section of Broad
street ever since. He leaves no chiU

Mallon, survives him. The funeral

Speaker Iteed is doing his level
.best to gag the democrats of the
House, and is only prevented from
going to greater extremes by the ab
sence of a republican quorum. He is
trying to railroad the appropriations
bills through so as to have a clear
Irack when the Force bill comes over
with the Senate amendments, if it
ever does. He isn't succeeding very
well, and will not, unless he gets that
republican quorum, and keeps it.
It begins to look as though the sil
ver pool investigation would turn
out to be the usual republican Con
gressional farce, and that Senator
Cameron, who has admitted his guilt,
would be made the scape-goat. It is
stated, and generally believed here,
that Mr. Reed and other prominent
republicans are using their influence
upon the individual members of the
committee to prevent their exerting
themselves to find out who has leen
speculating in silvtr. There is also
talk about some democrats doing the
same thing. This is all dead wrong,
if true. If any Senator or Represen
tative, be he high or low, democrat
or republican, lias been speculating
in silver, while bills affecting the
market price of that metal were pen
ding, let him be exposed. The peo-
pie nave h ngiu io Know, and no
