It is with particular pleasure and
pride this week that the Herald
notes the victory of E. W. Carmack
over .Tosiah Patterson in the House
of Representatives. This decision
was reached last Friday, the vote
etandimr 130 to 118 in favor of Car
mack retaining his seat as Congress
man from the Tenth District of
Thus ended a contest which has
attracted an unusual amount of in
terest. A contest in which, there
lias been displayed, on the one
hand, the chicanery of a conniving
politician, and, on the other, the
manliness and conviction of a true
It is unnecessary here to review
the causes from which the contest
arose, or the train' of events which
have resulted therefrom. By the
decision of the House the charges of
bribery, etc., which were filed
against the successful contestant,
have been entirely erased and his
character has been left untarnished.
Declaring his apostasy to the
Democratic faith and acknowledg
ing his allegiance to the "golden
calf," Patterson bowed to the feet
of the Republicans and begged
favors at their hands, confident in
the hope of winning by his gold
bug proclivities. On the other
hand, Carmack, with his charac
teristic manliness and unswerving
fidelity to his party, boldlv declared
in his speech to the house just be
fore the vote was taken, that the
Republicans had never gained
favors at his hands and he expected
none from theirs, and re-attlrmed
his fealty to the principles ex
pounded by William Jennings
Bryan and contained in the Demo
The vote was taken, and, not
withstanding the efforts of Boss
Reed and Assistant President Han
na to have Carmack unseated by the
adoption of the Republican ma
jority report of the Committee on
Elections, the Democratic minority
report was adopted by a majority of
In Maury County, Mr. Carmack's
old home-place, his victory is es
pecially the source of great rejoic
ing. Patterson has met the fate he
justly deserves. With none so poT
as to do him reverence, he tinks
into the oblivion of his political
tomb with the contempt of the Re
publicans who refused him admit
tance into their ranks and the scorn
of the party that he betrayed.
Elsewhere in this issue of the
Hkhald will be found a card from
ex-Congressman H. C. Rnodgrass,
replying to an anonymous circular
recently sent abroad over the State,
and defending Mr. McMillin's
record on the silver question.

The Courier-Journal does not pro
pose here to defend the right of the
war which began yesterday. We
have set fo' th that right so fully in
recent issues that it would he need
le repetition now to reiterate it.
The American who yet doubts that
right, or to whom it is obscure, is
lacking in knowledge of his coun
try's history and destiny, if not
blunted as to his moral and hu
mane sensibilities. Hut the war is
an actuality now; the time for
ethical hair-pplitting is gone. It is
a war which in the eyes of God and
man we are waging for God and
man. And whether every American
sees it with such eyes, he must see
it now with the eyes of him who
proclaimed: "May she always be
right, but right or wrong, our coun
try!" It is our country, right or
wrong, and every one of our coun
trymen worthy of a country is with
her. We are all for the war now,
whatever we irtay have been forty
eight hours ago. We are for its
wise conduct, its vigorous prosecu
tion, its quick and glorious con
elusion. Bickerings and cavallings
are swept away, factions and di
visions are closed up. We are
Americans all, for America against
the world ; ready with our substance,
with our service, with our lives, to
answer any call our country may

Washington, April 20 Sir Ju

dispatch from the British Foreign
Office, signed by Lord Salisbery,
announcing that the Queen's procla
mation of neutrality in the war be
tween Spain and the United States
had been signed. The dispatch
states that the proclamation is
similar to those issued on f irmer
occasions, but in addition, directs
special attention to the three rules
of the treaty of Washington of May
8, 1871, article 6, which will be ob
served toward both countries. The
rules which Lord Salisbery directs
special attention are of exceptional
moment just at present owing to the
presence in British ports of several
warships, including the Somers and
Albany, intended for the United
States navy. The rules state that a
neutral government is bound to use
due diligence to prevent the fitting
out, arming or equipping of any ves

to believe is intended to be used in

Washington, April 27. Col. R.
C. Marshall, of Virginia, called at
the White House yesterday to ad
vocate the enlistment of colored
troops. It then came out that no
colored troops would be raised un
der the present call, owing to the
embarrassment which would follow.
The President is contemplating
calling for 10,000 more troops, to be
composed entirely of colored volun-
teers. Complaints have already
been made to the War Department,
however, over the behavior and
rowdyism nf colored regulars in the
South, at Tampa and Chickamauga
especially, and it has even been
suggested that the colored regiments
be sent first into Cuba.
The Washington Post this morn
ing, in a leading editorial, calls upon
the President to either withdraw
the negro troops from the South or
else send them as an advance guard
into Cuba, saying that their pres
ence and insolence has a pernicious
influence among the negro population.

What Kx-CongreftHinan Knndtcra Ha to
Say About That Annnyinou Circular.
To the Citizens of Warren Count i:
McMinnvi I. l K, T k nn., April , IS!S.
Having business in your midst, I came
here thir morning. In the contest that
is going on for the gubernatorial nomi
nation, I knew the Democracy of War
ren county was able to take care of
itself, and I had not expected to say
anything relative to the contest, but
there has just been handed me a slan
derous, mean tissue of falsehood and in
sinuations, headed "McMPlin," and
siirned hy its proper author nobody.
The fact that this circular is anony
mous in itself Is enough to convince all
intelligent men that it is entitled to no
faith or credence, and is proof of the
further fact that its author is a coward
who desp-es to stand in the dark and
stab a better man than himself in the
hHok when he had no chance to strike
hack. It has Rimply enough truth
smeared over with false reasoning to be
calculated to deceive the unthinking.
The main charge in the circular
against Mr. McMiPin is that he i not a
good free silver Democrat. This is
utterly untrue. lie has been in Con
gress for twenty years, during all of the
silver agitation, and he has voted for
every proposition for the freo and un
limited coinage of silver every time the
proposition came up, and never against
it. as shown by the Congressional
Record. They charge that he voted for
Ihe unconditional repeal of the pur
chasing clause of the Sherman law; t li w
much is true, but they suppress part of
lie truth in reference to this vote
The Democratic platform declared for
the repeal of the Sherman law, and
when it came up for repeal Mr. Hland
offered a hill in lieu for the free coin
age of silver in four or five different
ratios, running from hi to 1, to is I to 1.
airl Mr. McMillin voted for the Bland
hill and for free coinage at every one of
tht se ratios. Afterthis bill had 'been de
feated, then the original hill for the re
peal of the Sherman law came up, and
in order to pass it the administra ion
promised the silver men if they would
vote for the repeal they should have
further silver legislation in compliance
with the Democratic platform, anil
w'nt so far as to permit Mr. Voorhees.a
stiver senator who wa chairman of the
Finance Committee of the Senate, to
add a c'ause to the hill providing thai
when the Sherman law should be re
pealed they would give us further sil
ver legislation according to the Demo
crat!? platform. I'pon this assurance
Mr. McMillin voted for the repeal of
the Sherman law, and stated that, while
he was a free silver Democrat, he would
support the repeal hill upon this prom
ise, and Senator Vorhees and many free
silver men voted fr the repeal upon
this assurance of favorable silver legis
lation. After all of this, when IJryaii was
nominated and the Chicago platform
declared for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at 111 to 1, Mr. liryan,
Chairman Jones and Senator Faulkner,
( hairman of Congressional Committee,
selected Mr. Millin to get up and p'lh
.ish the campaign hook for the "First
liuttle." He did so at his own expense.
Now who is in hetter position to judge
his silver record, Mr. Bryan, Chairman
Jones and Fanl kner or the anonymous
circular writer? This is enough proof
to relute the slander on his silver
record. This anonymous circular
against Mr. Millin was not written and
circulated in the interest of free coin
age. It is pleasing only to the enemies
of free silver. As. above shown, Mr.
Millin was the trusted friend of free
coinage, and is he now to lie abused for
it in the interest of its enemies?
They say that he rode with Mr
Brvaii in "special palace cars." He did
tin's. He went with Mr. Hryan in many
States as his tried and trusted ai-sist-ant.
Will yon condemn him for this?
There is' only one other mean In
sinuation in the circular that I desire
to allude to, that is that Mr. McMillin
does not favor railroad regulations.
Mr. Millin happens to have a record on
this question. As far back as when Mr.
McMillin was a member of the Tennes
see Legislature he advocated a Railroad
Commission for Tennessee. Later he
was elected to the National Congress
when the Interstate Commerce lull
was pending before Congress. The
railroad stood on one side and the peo
ple on the other and Mr. Millin stood
Vk i tli the people and voted for the bill.
Since his candidacy for the nomination
for (Jovernor he was interviewed as to
a Railroad Commission and stated that
he was in favor of it and had always
hoe 1 1 so.
There is nothing the matter with Mr.
McMillin's record and it cannot lie
damaged bv lies circulated in anon v
nioiis posters. His record was good
enough for companionship with Hryan
and is good enough for Tennessee's
I do not write this to distract from
an v other candidate for Governor or to
unduly influence anybody to support
Mr. Millin, but 1 leave you to ilociile
that matter as your lodgment dictates.
Having been in Congress with Mr. Mc
Millin and knowing the facts above set
forth to be true and the charges con
tained in the anonymous circular to be
false, I believed it my duty to write
this card. H. 0. Snopuuass
(Jen. Woodford has twice allowed
himself to be outwitted in the game
of diplomacy. Instructed to de
mand the recall of De Lome, he per
mitted the Spanish Cabinet to ac
cept the Minister's resignation be
fore acting:, and given the Presi
dent's ultimatum he permitted him
self to be surprised with his pass
ports. When it is remembered, in
addition to this, that he was firmly
convinced that he could talk the
Spanish into peace, one is bound to
acknowledge that Gnu. Woodford is
not a success in the diplomatic field .
