It is that impurity in the blood, which, m

duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which'
causes painful running sores on tho arms,

deafness; which is the origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or the many other manifesta

fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being tho most ancient, it is tho
most general of all diseases or affections, for

McMINNYILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Mead & Kitchey.
Officb Southern Standard,
McMinnville, Aug., 7 1891
Some changes noticable in country
produce since last week. Dried
fruit, without seemingly any good
reason, is a little firm. There is no
good reason we can see for much, If
any, improvement in the near future.
Mathew Semple & Co., reliable com
mission merchants of Philadelphia,
in their . card of August 1st, say
"The market for dried fruits tends to
lower prices. Beaches it appears to
be an undeniable fact that in every
peach district the crop is a full one.
Our own Peninsula has the largest
crop they ever had, notwithstanding
reports to the contrary. Apples the
crop of the country generally is an
immense one, and prices must neces
saniy be low. ".blackberries are
being offered at 4 to 5, but not much
interest being shown at the latter
figure. Whortleberries will be want
ed at 7 to 8." We give extracts from
this card to show what the Eastern as
well as Westenffruit dealers think of
mere lsa.mtie better ieenng in
Eggs. The price being 8 to 8 for
fresh eggs. Poultry is very dull in
all the markets and prices much
lower. Dealers cannot handle frying
chickens at prices satistactory to pro-
ducers. In other articles we handle
we have no changes to report.

Col. Savage on the Lease System.
The Nashville Banner of last Satur
day hunts up a part of Col. Savage's
record on the lease system,'1 and has
this to say about It:
"When the bill to lease the penN
teritiary again was before the General
Assembly of 1885) Col. John Savage
was on" uf th? few Democrats who
3tood up ogaln-it its passage and who
voted with the Republicans against
thelblll. He entered formal protest
against the passage of the law and
that protest.as spread upon the House
journal, is an evidence of his politi
cal sagacity. It was as follows:
1. This General Assembly has no
power Jexcept the ' power to make
laws, and it is an everlasting law that
all human laws are repcalable.
. This General Assembly has no
constitutional power to make-any
contract or regulation concerning the
penitentiary that will bind the people
and their representatives for a period
longer than two years, for if such
power exists this General Assembly
could lease the penitentiary by con
tract for one hundred or one thous
and years and thereby fix upon the
people of tho State this corrupt and
corrupting monopoly, Jorganizedand
sustained by a combination of specu
lators and powerful corporations con
trolling, to a large extent, general
business, newspapers and the action
of political parties.
3. There is no express power in the
constitution to authorize the General
Assembly to pass a law to make a
regulation that will lessen the power
or deprive subsequent legislatures to
control and regulate the same, and no
such power can be implied, because
in derogation of the rights of subse
quent legislatures to make such laws
and regulations concerning the penN
tentiary as they may think best for
the general welfare. Common sense
and Jeffersonian Democracy adhere
to it strict construction oftheconstitu
tion and decline to assume doubtful
power. Members are sworn to give
no vote injurious' to the public and
shall consent to nothing that will
have a tendency to abridge the rights
and privileges of the people. The
lease of the penitentiary, if binding
and valid, abridges the rights of the
people and prohibits future general
assemblies, for the period of seven
years, from regulating and abolishing
4. It is unwise at this time to make
a contract that will prohibit succeed
ing Legislatures from modifying, al
tering or abolishing the penal code of
Tennessee and adopting a better law.
5. Because it is impolitic and un
wise to lease the penitentiary for i
longer period than two years. It
should be kept subject to legislative
power at all times, and no contract
should obstruct legislative action.
Had the Banner looked back
through the House Journal of 1877, it
would also have found the following
protest from Col. Savage:
John II. Savage, member from
Warren, respectfully protests against
the passage of House Bill No. 588 and
the Senate amendments thereto, and
assigns the following causes why the
bill should be rejected:
1st. This General Assembly has no
constitutional power to make a valid
lease of the Penitentiary for a longer
period than until the meeting of the
2nd- Tlie penitentiary being a pub
lie institution should be held at al
times subJect to the control of the peo.
pie anu ineir representatives, so mat
such changes may be made as the
people may desire.
3rd. That it creates a monopoly on
a grand scale, able to crush and de
stroy individual enterprise or weak
4th. That the effect of the bill wil
be to place the convicts under a man
ngement that is not satisfactory to the
majority of the people.
otn. inat it would be more equa
and fair to all persons to let out the
convicts in squads of 50 or more
the highest bidder, and this
would bring more money
The Ohio Valley.
The vote of $115,000 in bonds by
Hopkinsville to tho Ohio Valley and
$35,000 in private subscriptions settles
the opinion now that Mr. Hunting
ton is behind the scheme, that the
road will be built, and further that
the plan is to push through to Nash
villo by way of Clarksville, when the
connection will be made with the
Knoxville road that is now being
pushed on from Lebanon to the coa
fields of the upper Cumberland.

Money in Circulation.'
Washington, Aug. 4. Statements
have been prepared at the Treasury
Department showing the amounts of
money In circulation on the first of
July of the years 18G0, 'C5 '85 '89 and
'91, from which it" is apparent that
the assertions so often repeated of late
that there has been 6ince the war a
great reduction of the amount ol mon
ey in circulation, are entirely with
out foundation. To state all the facts
in few words, the amount of money
in circulation in 1860 was about $435,
000,000, and the amount per capita
was $13.85. In 18G5 there were$733,
000,000 in circulation.and the per cap-
ta amount was $20.82. Twenty
years later the circulation was over
$1,592,000,000, and the per capita $22.-
02, while on Jan. 1, last, the amount
was nearly $2,329,000,000, with $23.10
as the per capita allowance, the high
est in the , hisiory of the United
Want tie Lease System to Stand.
The following resolution was adopt
ed by the Marshall county Demo
cratic Executive Committee last
"Ilesolved.that it is the sense of this
committee, and we believe it to be
that of the Democracy of the county,
that the lease system bo not interfer
ed with, and that the same continue
until some other means be devised of
managing the convicts without ex
pense to the State; that it is impossi
ble to work them either within
the walls or outside without coming
in conflict with honest labor, and tho
mines are the proper place for them."
Condition vs. Theory.
Those who are in ill-health are
confronted by a condition, not a
theory, although there are numbers

Elegant Fashion Books.
The new Fashion Journals, "La
Mode" "L:t Mode de Paris," and
"Album des Modes," published by
A. McDowell & Co., 4 West 14th
St., N Y., are the most elegant of their
kind ever brought to our notice. The
styles are drawn by artists; and the
books are produced by rival houses in
this character of publications. For
merly they were printed only in
French; but they are now published
in English for the use of American
readers. These journals furnish the
styles one month in advance of any
similar publications; and they have a
practical department, in which les
sons are given each month on how to
make dresses, etc. The admirable
fashions, the lessons in dressmaking,
and the giving of the styles one
month earlier than heretofore are
strong points in favor of these Fash
Ion Books, causing them to be called
"The Favorites." These excellent
publications can be obtained from all

The Immigration Commissioner has
decided that Welsh tin plate workers

decision was never made, but to say
nothing of that, which is no more

plain where the benefit to American
workingmen comes in in making tin
plate in America, if the makers of it
are to be imported from Wales?
Tho employment of a large number
