Foety thousand dollars for a state
exhibit at the St. Louis Exposition
bnt not a dollar for the erection of
a home for Tennessee's governor,
when only the modest sum of $25,
000 was asked. Making a show to
the outside world and neglecting
home affairs is poor policy.
The Nashville Daily News, of
April 13th, contained a photograph
of Senator Jackson, beneath which
the following appeared: Hon. J. C.
Jackson, of Opha, Hardeman
County, representing the Twenty
Sixth Senatorial District, composed
of Hardeman, McNairy, Hardin,
Decatur and Beuton counties, is a
farmer. He is 66 years of age. He
was born and raised in Hardeman
County. He served in the Confeder
acy, being captain of a company in
the Fifty-first Tennessee Regiment
which place he resigaed November,
1864, and returned home. He is a
member of the Methodist Church
and a Free Mason. He has been a
Justice of the Peace of Hardeman
County for seventeen years. He
has been a loyal Democrat all his
Cleveland on the Negro Problem.
Former President Grover Cleve
land was the principal speaker
Tuesday night at a meeting held in
Madison Square Garden, New York,
in the interest of the Tuskegee
Normal and Industrial Institute.
We leproduce some strong utter
ances from the speech:
"I believe the days of Uncle
Tom's Cabin are past.
"I do not believe that either the
decree that made the slaves free or
the enactment that suddenly invest
ed them with the rights of citizen
ship, any more purged them of their
racial and slavery-bred imperfect
ions and deficiencies than it changed
the color of their skin.
"I believe our fellow-countrymen
in the Southern and late slave
holding states, surrounded by about
nine-tenths, or nearly eight millions
of this entire negro population, and
who regard their material prosperity
their peace, and the safety of their
civilization, interwoven with the
negro problem, are entitled to our
utmost consideration and sympa
"With all we of the North may
do, the realization of our hopes for
the negro must, after all, mainly
depend except so far as it rests
with the negroes themselves upon
the sentiment and conduct of the
leading and responsible white men
of the South.
"I have faith in the honor and
sincerity of the respectable white
people of the South in their re-
lations with the negro and his im
provement and well being. They
do not believe in the social equality
of the race, and they make no false
pretense in regard lo it. That this
does not grow out of hatred of the
negro is very plain.
"There is abundant sentiment and
abundant behavior anions the South
ern whites towards the negroes to
make us doubt the justice of charg
ing this denial of social equality to
prejudice, as we usually understand
the word. Perhaps it is born of
something so much deeper and
more imperious than prejudice as to
amount to a racial instinct."
Compliment to Col. Josiah Patter
son There appears to be general
consent that the most notable speech
at the Shiloh exercises was that by
Col. Josiah Patterson, the Confeder
ate Veteran member of the Commis
sion, and unquestionably it was an
address of great force and charming
composition. Its attraction lies
chiefly in the masterly presentation
of the thought that it is not necessa
ry for brave and honorable oppo
nents to forget their differences in
order to hold kindly feelings toward
each other after those differences
have been settled and hostilities
have ceased. His theory that there
exists a "freemasonry among brave
and generous men" which makes
this possible was skillfully put and
The most striking feature of Col.
Patterson's remarks was his dis
posal of Sumner's proposition to
furl the battle flags and remove, so
far as possible, the visible remind--ers
of the struggle. Sumner had
the 'same end in view practically
that Col. Patterson recognizes as
, desirable, but, as the latter shows,
his plan would have been Very un
satisfactory to both sides, and
would have failed of its purpose.
The better solution is found when
the old soldiers of both sides get
togetber and compare notes as to
how it all happened. And at Shiloh
this seems to result in a complete
transfer of the hostilities from, the
original contestants to the represen
tatives of factions of each who are
trying to settle who was to blame.
The sentiment of Col. Paterson's
speech was embodied iu- this pas-
Recalling in this presence the
memories of the past, and with a
heart which cherishes iu its inmost
core the honor and glory of. my
comrades in arms, I do not hesitate
to pronounce a malediction an all
men who would cherish or revive
the animosities of the civil war.
Accursed be the coward, North
or South, who was a Doncombatant
when battles were fought and won
or lost, and a belligerent when
brave men are at pea".e!
Accursed be the demagogue,
North or South, who would stir up
and then inflame sectional animosi
ties iu order to promote his politic
Honor to the men who foster
peace, cherish good will and .pro
mote the common welfare!
Honor to the men who serve their
country, who look to it as the pal
ladium of their liberties, and who
would if necessary, defend its free
institutions and the honor of its flag
with their lives and fortunes!
Surely that sentiment is worthy
of preservation wherever patriotism
exists, and it is not surprising that
it met an enthusiastic reception
from those who heard it on that
historic field. It will receive as
warm a welcome from the country
at large. Indianapolis Sentinel.

General Crop Conditions.
The unfavorable conditions of ex
cesive moisture during the month
of March caused much delay in
farming operations, and the work
of plowing and other preparations
for planting is, at this time, two or
three weeks later than usual.
However, the warm weather which
has prevailed, with slight intervals
of cold, has greatly favored the
growth of vegetation, and where
planting has been done seeds have
shown rapid germination, and are
coming up better than usual. Corn
planting has progressed as rapidly
as conditions- of soil and weather
would permit, and since the first of
the month a good proportion of the
early crop has been planted. Oats
are mostly planted, Hnd coming up.
Wheat and other winter grains are
in fine condition of growth, and the
prospects for good crops are flatter-
mm 1 T -

toes is about all planted. Tobacco
plants are reported plentiful and
growing fiuely. As to fruit, re
ports are conflicting, or rather they
are varied; from some sections, j
peaches and other early fruits are re
ported killed by the frosts; from
others little or no damage is report
ed; it is almost too early yet to" form
a decided opinion. In the Western
Division preparations are being
made for an increased area in the
early shipping vegetables, such as
tomatoes, etc. In some of the
western counties cotton acreage will
be increased. Clover and other
forage grasses are reported in fine
condition. The excessive rains of
the 7th and 8th did gieat damage
in vaiious portions of the State by
washing away the soil, and destroy
ing fencing, and flooding lowlands
along the water courses; the damage
was particularly severe in some of
the western counties of the Middle,
Division. The frosts of the 3d and

My skin was almost yellow, - eyes
sunken, tongue coaled, pain continu

growing weaker day by day. Three
physicians had given me up. Then
I was advised to use Electric Bit
