MR. McMILT.IN'8 KECOBI).
The Herald of last week con
tained an article embodying the
statement that Mr. McMillin, in the
year 1892, (when McDowellism' was
rampant in this state and the servi
ces of every true Democrat was
needed to repel the advance of his
sub-treasury heresy) was conspicu
ously absent from the stump in
The American of the 12th takes
the Herald to task for this edito
rial expression, and makes profert
of Mr. McMillin's record for 1896
note the difference in date.
In replyto the American's article,
the editor of this paper wrote the
following to the American, which
appeared in that paper of the 13th:
To the American:
Under the above heading, in your is
sue of this date, you are, indeed, very
inaccurate. You quote from the Colum
bia Herald of last week when it is
said that "if Mr. McMillin made a 'sin
gle speoch in this State outside of his
own Congressional District, we cannot
now recall it; and if he made more than
three in his own district, it is that
many more than we think."
Then you proceed to narrate how
many speeches Mr. Millln made for the
Democratic party in 1890, citing Colum
bia as one of the places at which he
spoke. You then conclude your re
marks with the hope that "the Colum
bia Herald, having fallen by some
strange misinformation into such an
egregious misstatement, will have the
requisite courage and candor to ac
knowledge its error and accord to Mr.
McMillin the credit he deserves."
Now, if I shall convince you that the
Herald was correct in what it said,
and that it is you who have made "an
egregious misstatement," 1 hope that
"you will-have the requisite courage
and candor" to acknowledge your er
ror and correct the gross injustice yon
have done the Herald.
The Herald does not deny what you
say about Mr. McMillin's record for
1S1H5. And as that is the best year's
record lie has ever made, we are not
surprised that his friends should point
with pride to it. But the Herald was
not referring to that year, and in the
same article from which you copy dis
tinctly said so.
The Herald's editorial referred to
says: "About the year 1892- (noV 1890),
when the Democracy of Tennessee was
fighting McDowellism, and when John
Henry was a dangerous political power
in the land, where was McMillin?
' When the danger flag was hoisted
at every Democratic cross-road;
whon ever other Democratic Congress
man was on the hustings and hustling
with all his might to reconcile the
fanners who had unwittingly followed a
wolf away from the fold, and lead them
back; when the light was fierce aud the
isBue doubtful, where was Mac?"
Then follows the paragraph you quote ,
referring directly and explicitly to 1892,
Now what', have you to say as to
accuracy? Don't you think it is The
American rather than the Herald
who "has been grossly deceived with
out taking pains to ascertain the
truth!" And have you the "courage
andcundor to acknowledge your er
Of course you have, for we accord to
you the same good "inten tions" you
vouchsafed the Herald. It would be
Interesting also for you to state how
the mistake occurred. Perhaps some
ono garbled the article in question
and sent you only a part of it. It is not
the first fake news you have had from
Aud now that the matter is up for dis-
cussion, we shall be glad if you will be
as explicit concerning Mr. McMillin's
whereabouts and political record for
1892 as you have seen fit to be about
1896. Was lie in Tennessee fighting the
-sub-treasury and other political here
sies of that day, or was he East discuss
ing the tariff?
In order tocorrect at once the false
Impression your comments of to-day
.have made, I beg that you give this
place in your paper of to-morrow.
F. D. Lander, Editor Herald.
Columbia, Jan. 12.
The above was published by the
American without comment. The
American is a McMillin paper ; and
we take it that if the Herald had
misrepresented Mr. McMillin's re
cord for 1892, the misrepresentation
would have been commented upon
We certainly did not intend to mis
represent him, and do not think
we have ; and we repeat the charge
s and repeat the question, "where
was Mr. McMillin in 1S92, and what
was he doing?"'
It is hard to believe, of course,
but the report is that in the recent
Memphis municipal election, there
was some bribery and corruption
and other naughty things. Aud Mr.
Lucas Clapp, the machine can
didate for Mayor, who was defeated
a man reproach who
wouldn't take a driuk or buy a vote
for the world, -dontcher-know, will
contest the election. The country
has certainly went wrong if saintly
Memphis has caught the corruption.

That "widespread dissatisfac

cratic party in this couDty, is ,still
spreading. The people are diligent-
y inquiring into the matter, and

Fort Smith, Ark.,' was visited by
a destructive tornado last Tuesday
night, in which forty lives were lost,
hundreds of people wounded, and a
million dollars worth of prooerty
destroyed. It started near the
National Cemetery and tore its way
through the heart of the city. '
There will be a hot time in the
Opera House to-day at the noon-day
hour. Oratory will flow fast and
furious, but we hope there will be
no crimination and recrimination.
The patriotic citizens who have
been fighting the Bell monopoly so
gallantly for two years, should not
so far forget themselves as to
ascribe improper motives to each
other, or use any hard names.
Ix the controversy now going on
in the ranks of the Citizens' Tele
phone Co., the Herald will take
no partisan part, but in a spirit of
peace will offer this suggestion. It
is a business matter, pure and sim
ple, and should be discussed as such.
The Company is a co-operative one,
and by the terms of the contract, as
well as by right and justice, each
subscriber has a voice in its man
agement; and whatever a majority
of those subscribers say, must be
and ought to be the policy of the
company. In arriving at that decis
ion, we hope there will be no asper
sions or unfriendly criticisms, but
that in a business way the matter
will be discussed and determined,
and that whatever is for the best in
terest of the company and its stock
holders, may be done. We would
be sorry to see friends who have
worked together for the public good
so faithfully and harmoniously,
so far forget themselves in the heat
of debate as to make any unkind re
flections one upon the other.
SOME RAMBLING THOUGHTS.
THE IRREVOCABLE PAST is an
awful thought. Thedeedswe do, like
the casual foot-prints in the sands of
the Bay of: Fundy footprints of the
struggles for prey or of love are pre
served forever. Whatever we have
done remains an indelible mark. The
flood of repentance may soften its
harsh outlines; the ocean-flowers of
God's goodness may cover it: long
years may spread over it the gentle
mists of forgetfulness ; but the print re
mains. t And just as the curious geo-
logistunearths strange markings and
odd shapes, and brings them to the
light, so in the career of each one of us
will ever be found those walking con
sciences of unhappy accusation, who
whin occupying thomselves with us as
friends are unearthiug our fossil deeds
and sad acts and displaying them
to a gaping world whose first thought
is to see the liolo whence such things
can be digged and to argue to our dam
age that there mut be more where
these came from.
Such is somewhat the experience of
all of us who have erred. We are stab
bed in the housesof our reputed friends,
we are appalled to find even our sim
ple or sinless foolishness remembered
through decades and revived after times
of utter peace of mind. This is what
causes tho heart often to sink within
The past belongs to a record that is
unchangeable. Bear that in mind and
take courage. Each of us has a grave
yard, the skeletons are there a"dsome
day perhaps our friends will prove it to
us. But dining with ghosts, sleeping
with them, thinking of them will un
nerve the heart, produce visions of un
real sorrows and utterly ruin the life
so long as the ghosts of gone-bys, keep
us from opening our doors to the hun
gry duties aud deeds that await us out
side our dreary banqeting hall of re
grets. What we have for our own is THE
LIVING PRESENT, as Longfellow ex
It is a stimulating thought, though
the next step be the future, and the last
the past; yet, through ourwholelife,we
have our constant little "glimpse of time
between two eternities," which to all
intents and purposes fs our own. We
need not stop to discuss Free-will or
Election. Whether our every action be
fore-ordained or fore-known of God or
no, practically it is ours to choose. The
father may warn the child that fire will
burn, may eveu know before lie leaves
the room that the child will be burnt,
may even wish the child to learn wis
dom by sufTering; but, as far as the
child is concerned, it is his to choose
whether faith or self-will shall h-n-o tho
mastery. The present is in its passing
moments determining those things at
which we shall later look back. The
past is fixed. The present is ours to
shape and to mould. Let us get " at it
with every fireceness of purpose.
You gloomy mourners over the past,
' listen to a homely parable: Three bov
hud each a specked apple. The first
recognized the defect, and threw the
fruit into the nearest stream. The
second cut away the bad part and ate
what was left. The third sat him down
bemoaning the fate that sent the rotten
ness until the whole decayed. Some of
us, like Judas Iscariot, discover our
character-specks and throw away our
lives; others, wiser, like the Prodigal
Son, discard the worthless portions as
soon as they are seen to be worthless,
and henceforth live only on the good
and wholesome things; and there are
others, who have neither the decision
of Judas, nor the good-sense of the
Prodigal. They make one wrong
choice, and spend the res of their lives
bemoaning it. The bow is bent, but
the arrow which was to have hit the
quarry, has "kicked" and wounded the
over-eagr hand. Thereupon though
the game he plentiful; though the
keeper put the how once more into the
still useful hand, though other arrows
rest in the full quiver, the game passes
unheeded, the bow warps for want of
work, and the arrow-heads rust in Idle
ness. For one false shot, therefore, a
quiver-full of arrows is lost and au
empty larder cries out upon the faint
hearted one. How many of us are here
Arise, misguided ones. The old year
is dead; but the New Year has risen
from its ashes. The past is with God
irrevocable. The future Is with God
uncontrolable. But the present, the
"Living Present." is yours yours to
shape and brighten, until it hide the
Past by is greatness, and woo the future
by its loveliness. Do like the- artillery
man who hurls a shell into a fenced
city; he has done his duty if his gun be
well pointed, and his powder dry; but
whether he will slay the commander-in-chief,
or shatter a tobacconist's dum
my, he cannot tell. Point at the frown
ing ramparts of all opposing forces.
Aim high and you will overcome.
"Trust no future howe'er pleasant,
Let the dead past bury its dead,
Act, act in the living present,
Heart, within and God o'erhead."
FLORENCE'S NEW .HILL.
Mes.m. J. C. Ilea Co., Will Have It
Kuuning July 1.
Florence, Ala.. Herald.
The flouring mill is assured, as all
the details have been arranged and
the Foster Manufacturing Co.'s
plant bought for .,o00. The factory
is a fine piece of property, admir
ably located ou the M. & 0. railroad
and L. & N. railroad, in East Flor
ence, with a good landing on the
Tennessee river. The main build
ing is a two story brick with splen
did boilers and engines and eleva
tors and is admirably suited for
a flouring mill. Machinery will be
bought for a 100 barrel mill, which
will be increased later, as the build
ing has floor space for three times
that capacity. The building was
bought of J. T. Montgomery, Taun
ton, Mass., through his agent, A. E.
Walker. The gentlemen who will
own and operate the mill are Messrs.
J. C. Ilea, T. J. Rea and J. J. Flem
ing of Columbia, Temi. Mr. J. C.
Rea is president and T. J. Rea will
be resident manager. Mr. J. C.
Rea has been book keeper in one of
the Columbia banks for the past
three years. All the gentlemen are
substantial business men and are
successful in their various business
pursuits. The mill will he in opera
tion by the first of July, in time to
handle the wheat crop of Lauder
dale county. The mill will create
a local market for wheat and en
able the farmers to have their own
wheat ground. J. C. Rea & Co., will
also put in a grain elevator and
ware-house and operate a grist mill
in connection with tho flour mill.
The locating of the mill here, means
much for Florence and the farmers
of Lauderdale county.

Case of Hushes vs. Farmers' B. & L.
Court of Chancery AppnnU AiHrnied
HUtory r CRxe'anil Points of
Law In vol veil.
The affirmation by the Supreme
Court on Saturday of the decision
of the Court of Chancery Appeals in
the case or Hughes and wire vs. the
Farmers' Building & Loan Associa
tion, settles a point of building and
loan law in which a great many
persons in the State are interested.
A brief history of this case is as fol
lows: In August, 1892, Hughes and wife
borrowed from the association in
question a sum of money on the
plan known by the association as its
'farmers' plan." According to this
plan the nrst installment or
premium, interest and dues was to
be paid at the time the loan was
taken out, as an advance payment,
and subsequently at the expiration
of every six months until the 6tock
should be matured. The Court of
Chancery Appeals held, construing
this part of the contract, that the
first payment covered the first six
moirhs from Aug. 10, 1802, to Feb.
10, 1893, and that theretore at the
latter dat nothing was due and no
other payment due until Aug. 10,
1893. On the latter date Hughes
and wife paid $100 all that was due
except $14. No other payment, as
constructed by the court, was due
until February, 1891: but In Novem
ber, 1893, tho secretary of the build
ing aud loan association demanded
the installment of premium, in
terest and dues which would not
fall due until the following Feb
ruary, and threatened to close the
mortgage that had been executed to
secure the debt unless payment was
made. Hughes and wife failed to
make the payment, and thereupon
the association advertised the
property for sale. ' The bill to enjoin
this sale was then filed by Hughes
The court held that inasmuch as
the Secretary of the association had
illegally demanded the sum above
referred to, and threatened to sell
the property unless it should be
paid, that Hughes and wife could
properly refuse to go further in the
execution of the contract, and
would be entitled to a settlement on
a basis of ascertaining the amount
due under the contract up to that
tune, with simple Interest from that
time on ; also, that no fines should
be allowed to the association.
1'his form of settlement, however,
was not the one desired by Hughes
and wife. It was insisted by them
that the whole transaction was
usurious, une point made by their
attorney was that the contract was
not in accordance with building and
loan law and was, therefore, usuri
ous because the premium was not
payable' in weekly or monthly in
stallments of six mouths. The court
held that this point was not well
taken. The old law of 1875 provided
that the whole premium should be
paid at the time the loan was taken
out. The act of 1889 provided it
might be made payable in weekly
or monthlv installments. The court
held that this provision was made
in the interest or the borrower to
enable him to realize more money
at the time of the loan and to pay
lus premium gradually. It was held
that payments six months apart
would fall fairly within the mean
ing of the old term, "monthly in
Another point raised by Hughes
and wife wus that the loan was ille
gal and therefore usurious because
they did not appear in person and
bid for tho money at the meeting of
the Board of Directers of the asso
ciation. The act of 1893, chapter 12,
provides that the Board of Direc
tors shall have power to loan the
funds of the association to stock
holders either in open meeting or by
action on written applications and
bids. The court said that this writ
ten application must be used as a
bid in an open meeting, under the
act of 1893, but the loan in the case
was made before the passage of that
act, and it was contended that a bid
in writing could not be lavfully
made prior to the act of 1893. In
this case it appeared that the writ
ten bid of Hughes and wife was sub
mitted to the Board of Directors in
an open meeting of the association,
and in competitive bidding. This
was held sumcient, even though the
transaction occurred prior to the
act of 1893, holding that the bid in
writing was in all respects equal y
an oral Did, the cruet couditlon Do
ing that there must be a competi
tive bidding in an open meeting.
In the opinion the court discussed
at some length the subjects of pre
