Richmond, April 14. The convention of
southern governors was called to order
yesterday by President Fishback, and after
preliminary business resolutions were pre
sented having for their object a uniform
scheme to attract population to the south
ern 6tates. They were referred. A number
of resolutions on various subject were
disposed of similarly, and then Governor
Fishback, of Arkansas, presented an address
to 'His Kxcellency the President of the
A "Condition, Not a Theory."
The address is as follows: "The gover
nors of the southern states in convention
assembled, beg leave respectfully to call
your attention to a 'condition, not a theory,'
which confronts and affects our entire
country, but more particularly the south
ern half of it. What are known as south
era states, are unquestionably superior in
climate, in soil, in national resources, and
in their capacity for greater diversity of
agricultural and horticultural products to
the northern half of the Union, if not in
deed, to any region of the world, -while
their system of laws, their social amenities;
their love for law and order and their gen
eral refinement, though differing in some
peculiarities, are not inferior to those of
ony portion of our country.
Aud Thii I the Condition.
"Yet the fact stares us in tbe face that in
material advancement these states are far
behind their sisters of the north. For ten
or fifteen rears after the late civil war the
uncertain condition of the race problem '
not unnaturally repelled immigration
and investment from our section, but hap
pily this condition no longer exists. Yet
what is commonly known as 'tbe south'
does not receive that share of immigration
and that flow of capital which her un
paralleled inducements would lead us to

LOGAN STATUE FOR CHICAGO.
The Model in Clay Represents a Historic
Chicago, Aprl 14. The equestrian
statue of General John A. Ix)gan, which
Is to be placjd in Jackson park after the
World's fair, will be a fine work of art.
Judge Tuthill, who recently inspected the
model in tbe studio of the sculptor, St.
Gaudens, iu Xew York, said that it is spir-

facts of the situation, but in false ideas of ' itcd and life-like and will be a valuable ad

"Much, if indeed not most, of those false
ideas originated in the systematic slander j
which one of the great political parties of
tbe United States has thought its interest !
to promulgate. We use the word 'slander' j
advisedly. Take as an illustration in proof
the state of Arkansas. There is no other
section of the country upon which has been
hurled. ranch vituperation and abuse.
Her people, her laws, her institutions, her
society have all alike been denounced in
unmeasured terms, until the idea prevails
in many places that her people are lawless,
if not uncivilized. Yet a congress com
posed of a majority of these very slander- '
ers. Republican in both its branches, only
two years ago, when called upon to enact a
code, a body with every state iu the Union
to select from, chose the entire code from
the statute of this very state of Arkansas.

"They cannot escape the alternative con
clusion to which this inevitably leads; they
stand convicted of either slandering one
of their fellow-commonwealths or of reck
lessly trifling with rights and interests of
another. But while tbe slander is made
more apparent in the case of Arkansas by
this stultification, yet it is not peculiar to
that state. Tbe whole south is included.
Believing that you appreciate the situa
tion and that your patriotism is broad
enough to cover all sections of the great
country over which you are called to pre
side, we respectfully ask of you that you
award to the south a larger share of the
representation, especially iu those foreign
ports from which most of our immigra
tion and capital come, than has Heretofore
been permitted us, to the end that the
mind of mankind be disabused of the false
impressions of the south which have been
so sedulously, so systematically and so in
juriously spread abroad throughout the
What the Governors Say About It.
The address was referred to a committee
appointed for that purpose. Governor
Tillman said he indorsed the general pur
port of the address, but would like to mod
ify its language just a litte. Governor
McKinney, of Virginia, said he indorsed it
in toto. Governors Jones, of Alabama,
and Foster, of Ixuisiana, would not be
quoted, saying they had not examined it
as tbey would like. Governor Carr, when
approached, sr.id that so far as he'had exam
ined the address he did not indorse it.
The Address to Cleveland Withdrawn.
At the closing session the foregoing ad
dress to the president was withdrawn and
an address to the people of tbe United
States and Europe adopted, setting forth
the agricultural and commercial advan
tages of the southern portion of the United
States. It deals with area, population,
climate, character of soil, minerals, fores
try, agriculture, and horticulture, and
declares the southland a land of promise
for all seeking new homes.
The Recent Crime at Salina.
SALlXA, Kan., April 14. A negro named
Hudson, who was captured as tbe man who
outraged Mrs. Frost and killed her baby so
brutally, is on trial here now. He has
been nearly lynched since arrest, but the
lynchers were not sure they had the right
man, and had a fight among themselves,
during which the prisoner was put in jail,
which is now guarded by military. Two
men swear tbey saw Hudson in town the
night before and tbe morning after the
crime, but four reputable witnesses swear
that Hudson passed the whole of that
night at a house six miles from here.
Gladstone for Imperial federation.
London, April 14. Gladstone was visit

upon him the visdom of the advocacy of

Gladstone said that be sympathized with

impossible to legislate on the aubfect bow.
general mounted on his war horse and with
a guidon in ins nana, just as ne took com
mand of the Army of the Tennessee at the
battle of Atlanta.
"It is a historic cceue, representing the
general as he rode down the lines on that
day, and rider and horse make a splended
picture. The sculptor has an enthusiastic
conception of the possibilities of the scene
nd the statue is sure to be a masterpiece.
As soon as the fair is over the commission
will select a new site for the monument
and tomb in the park, as the landscape
will probably be so altered as to make a
change desirable. As soon as the Behri'ig

Blodgett, who is a member of the monu

JAMES STEPHENS FOR HOME RULE,
The One Time Fenian Head Centre Makes
Lonihix, April 14. According to a report
in the Westminster Gazette James Steph
ens made a speech at Sutton, near Dublin,
in the course of which he used the follow
ing language: "I have no hesitation in
saying that tbe home rule bill ought to be
accepted, but at the same time I must
make certaiu reservations, especially in
regard to the question of finances. The
financial proposal made appears to be
most unjust, and I agree thoroughly with
Sir Joseph Xeall Kennaway's contention
that Ireland has heretofore been most gen
erously treated in the matter of finance
ever since the union.
"The great question with us, the tillers
of the soil, is will we ever become the
owners of that soil? I have no hesitation
in saying that during tbe next three years
the English people ought to make an ef
fort to settle the land question. If any
body asks me the question, will the bill
pass? my answer is emphatically, yes; and
I will add that if the Irish people are given
the control of their own government they
will surely not abuse their power."
The Clayton Assassination.
Mokuillton. Ark., April 14. The re
sult of the hearing of Burkhardt, the man
who says he knows about the assassination
of Jchn M. Clayton, was that he was com
mitted to the penitentiary at Little Kock
as a detained witness. He said yesterday
that he had told all he knew Wednesday,
and later declared that he knew ore,
but would not testify until he was brought
before the grand jury. It was felt that if
he was discharged he would never be heard
from again, aud so be was committed.
There were no new developments as to the
Senate Proceedings .Summarized.
Washington, April 14. The senate pro
ceedings opened with a roll-call yesterday
to secure a quorum for business. Sherman
presented a memorial of seventy-seven lie
publican members of the Kansas legisla
ture charging that the proceedings by
which Martin was elected to the senate
were illegal and that Ady was the lawfully
elected senator. A resolution was reported
authorizing the committee on privileges
and elections to investigate Ady's claims.
The senate then went iuto executive ses
sion and when the doors were opened ad

Columbus, O., April 14. The miners
held their convention yesterday in dead
secret, the business being the charges
against President McBride, they being that
he bad too much to do with politics on tbe
Democratic side at last election. They are
made by Katchford, one of the executive
board. Tbey were finally laid on the table
as too trivial for further consideration. A
long debate took place on a resolution to
make the United Mine Workers Journal
tbe organ of the association, and require
all members to subscribe for it.
