SOLDIERY UNDER ARMS AT
Rioting Coal Miners at Briceville and
We made brief mention last week
of the trouble at Briceville, in Ander
son County, with the miners in that
section, occasioned by the attempt to
introduce convict labor in the mines
at Briceville. About forty convicts
were sent there, and were at work
building a stockade. Free miners to
the number of several huudred as
sembled at tho stockade and drove
the convicts away. They were placed
upon a train with the guards and
carried to Knoxville. Gov. Buchan
an, with two companies of State mi
litia from Chattanooga and one com
pany from Knoxville, went to Brice
ville last Thursday, taking the con-
icts back with them. On Monday
tho miners captured both the milita
ry and convicts withQut firing a gun,
and sent them all back to Knoxville.
he miners, 1,000 or more strong,
gathered around the stockade and de
manded that both the military and
convicts take their departure in short
order. The miners were well armed
with Winchester rifles, and resist
ance upon the part of the handful of
youthful soldiers wpuld have been
foolhardy, so troops and convicts fell
back to Knoxville. As soon as this
news was communicated to Gov.
Buchanan, he ordered every compa
ny in the State to the scene of action
by telegraph. This was responded to
by three companies from Nashville,
four from Memphis, and one each
from Springfield, Franklin, Murfrees
boro, Shelby ville, Tullahomaand Se-
wanee, ubout lour hundred men, all
of whom were hurried to Knoxville
on special trains. Ere the troops had
reached Knoxville the Governor be
gan to get a little uneasy in his boot
as to his legal authority to order out
the militia, and Attorney General
Pickle was called into consultation.
After a conference at Nashville, the
Governor and Attorney General re
paired to Knoxville on Tuesday
night, where conferences were held
on Wednesday with prominent citi
zens ot me district, ana with a com
mittee from the miners. After these
conferences the Governor announced
that he had decided before leaving
Nashville to call an extra session of
the Legislature, and that he would
embody in the call a recommendation
that the convict lease system be mod
ined, n not repealed, in the mean
time the convicts must be returned to
the mines at Briceville, and if the
miners agree to leavethem unmolest
ed until the Legislature acts, the
militia will be withdrawn.
Our latest news from the scene of
trouble indicates that these terms
will be accepted by the miners, for
they are beginning to realize that
they have been guilty of grave viola
tions of the law, and seem anxious to
get out with a good compromise
Thus the situation rests at this writ
ing (Thursday,) and doubtless in
iew aays our orave soldiers win go
rolling home on palatial railroad
trains, covered with glory and per
spiration, without burning an ounce
of powder or shedding a drop of
From Our Washington Correspondent.
How things change. One of the
planks of the republican platform
upon which Lincoln was elected de
manded the most rigid economy in
public expenditures, and now a mem
ber of the Cabinet openly defends
the extravagant appropriations of the
billion dollar Congress. Verily it is
time to demand another change.
Mr. Wanamaker isn't today half as
big a man in the eyes of Mr. Ilarri
son as he was when he raised that
$100,000 campaign fund. By the
way, it would be interesting to know
how much. of the money of the wreck
ed Keystone national bank went in
to that campaign fund. It would a
so be interesting to know whether

Mr. Foster. Statements ou paper
will not meet checks presented for
payment, if they would there would
be no bank failures. It is significant
that Mr. Foster has recently found it
necessary to present, by means of a
igned editorial in a New Yorknews-
aper, a very rosy statement of what
the condition of the Treasury is to be
n the near future. Perhaps no edi
tor was willing to make it strong
enough for him, so he did it him
self. There is little doubt that there are
many republicans who are very
much averse to having to support
Iarrison again ; but they are being
gradually whipped into line, and for
ack of a stronger leader they may
stay in line. But up to the very
hour that the nomination is made it
will ouly take one word from Blaine
to knock Harrison's aspirations so
liigh that they will never be again
heard of, and we take it, that it
would bo presumption on the part of
any man, other than Blaine hiiLself,
to say that that word will or will not

Senator Stewart, of Nevada, has
poured another breadside into Sena
tor Sherman, whom he accuses of be
ing the father of the republican finan
cial policy. This is a very grave ac
cusation, but the farmers of Ohio
seem to have a similar idea or they
would not have started out so de
terminedly after Sherman's sena
torial scalp. If Mr. Stewart keeps up
his attacks upou Sherman and the re'
publican party he will be doing the
country a service, but he will wake
up some morning to find himself
read out of the party. The leaders of
that party would have kicked
Stewart out long ago if his vote
wasn't so badly needed in the Senate.
There are good reasons for believing
that Mr. Stewart will be one. of the
republican Senators that will vote
for a repeal of some of the most ob
noxious features of the McKinley
tariff law next winter.
It is worthy of notice that the con
test for the Speakership of the House
of Representatives has been conducted
in the mast friendly and good na
tured manner by the numerous can
didates and their friends., No per
sonalities have been indulged in by
any of them; it is only a question of
the fitness and availability of the
different gentlemen, who are ambi
tious of the different gentlemen, who
are ambitious of presiding over the
next House, and every one of them
are democrats who have shown their
ability and party fealty in many
hard fought political contests in and
out of Congress. Every democrat
has, of course, a personal choice, but
there is no reason why any demo
crat need sulk, whichever of the can
didates may be given the honor by
the democratic caucus.
But little mischief is being done at
Washington just now, for the very
simple reason that most of the mem
bers of the administration are away
on their vacations.
The Midland Again.
Humors of the sale of the Tennessee
Midland Iload are again afloat, says
the Jackson Tribune-Sun:
It will bo remembered that the
Tribune-Sun some time since chron
icled the sale of a forty-five days' op
tion of the road to Mark Christian, a
prominent banker of Richmond, Va.,
and a large stockholder in the Vir
ginia Construction Company. This
option expired July 1.
Spanking of tho matter yesterday
to aTribune-Sun reporter, a gentle
man, who has exceptional means of
ascertaining what is going on, said:
"I believe the sale at the Midland
will be consummated before long.
I am satisfied that there is a strong
disposition to buy on the part of the
Christian syndicate, and an ccjually
strong desire on the part of the Mid
land people to sell. Col. Overton
has been in Richmond and there U
every reason to believe that negotia
tions are pending for the sale of the
road. I am Informed that the option
was renewed for sixty days, but I do
not know this to be a fact."
"There is no doubt in the world
but the Midland people are anxious
to go ahead and complete the road to
Nashville. The East Tennessee peo
ple have had their eyes on the prop
erty for some time and the Illinois
Centarl may yet figure in the deal."
"What is your opinion as to the ul
timate disposition of the road?"
"Well, my private opinion is that
the road will finally pass into the
hands of the syndicate represented by
Mr. Christian. Matters of this kind
are however, always kept very quiet
and you never know what is going to
happen until the thing is accomplish
ed. I think the Christian crowd
mean business, but money is very
hard to get hold of, and that may
cause the deal to hang fire for some
time. If Christian does buy the road
however, you can just bet your lust
cent it will be pushed to completion.
It will be built to Nashville and on to
some point in East Tennessee, giving
close connection with the great trunk
lines going east."
