Gov. Tanner, of Illinois, has
raised a new issue in law and poll
tics. The mine owners at Varder,
III., have had some trouble with
their miners, and a strike ensued
The mine owners declared they
would import a car load of negroes
from Alabama, to take the place of
the strikers, who wre white union
laborers. The miners rebelled
against this, and appealed to the
Governor to prevent the threatened
Importation of non-union, colored
labor, aud the Governor commanded
the mine owners not to brinir this
labor to the mines, tellinir them it
would precipitate a riot and blood
shed. But the mine owners brought
them In just the same i car loid of
negroes, armed to the teeth ; a riot
was precipitated and several men
on both sides were killed. Now
these are the facts, and the new
point raised by the Governor is this
He says that the mine owners, un
der the circumstances and knowing
the facts and having been warned
that the importation of this labor
would precipitate a riot, are re
sponsible for the consequences of
their acts; that they are murderers
because they have provoked mur
der; that they should be, and he
believes will be, indicted and
convicted of murder. "These
avaricious mine owners," he says
"have forgotten their duty to so
ciety, and none such shall be
tolerated while I am Governor of
Illinois." He takes the position
that a poor man's labor is "his
property," and that he has as much
right to fight in defense of it as the
rich have in defense of their prop
erty. The ground is hardly tenable
we think, but there is no telling
what a day may bring forth in tbi
country, where the chasm between
the classes is widening every day
where tens of thousand of robus
men are begging for work, and thei
families starving for bread. There
is one thin? dead certain. The rich
are becoming too rich, and the poor
are becoming too many, something
must be done to change this ten
dency to extreme wealth or poverty
or the child is already born who
will live to see a revolution in this
sountry, which, for the want of
better name, the historian may call
I Hon. Benton Hiilliy

"the massacre of the millionaires."
ThR soldiers, are coming; about
2,500 tf them'' wilt soon be encamped
in or near Columbia. They will
bring some trade with them, but,
unless they are different from other
encampments they will also bring
with them a corresponding amount
of rowdyism and drunkenness.
Trade purchased at such a price, we
think, is dearly bought ; and we very
much fear that some of our citizens
who have been instrumental in
bringing this encampment here,
will not be proud of their work a
month hence. We do not criticise
the motives of those who differ with
us. It is a question upon which the
good pe.Qple seem to be about
qually divided. But from 'what
we read In the newspapers of the
behavior of encampments else
where; from what we hear by word
of mouth from those who have
isited cities where thee encamp
ments are, we are forced to the con-
lusion that the soldier boys are not
very desirable neighbors. Our en
campment mav be an exception to
the rule; we hope it is, for as a pile
they are an unmitigated nuisance.
They are young men as a rule, away
from home and restraining local in
fluences. In addition to that they
are in a state of enforced idleness;
and they are dissatisfied with their
ot; in a moment of enthusiastic
patriotism, they joined the Ameri
can army to ngnt the span-
lards; they have not been allowed
to fight, and now they are mad be
cause thev have not been given a
chance, and because they are not
ikely to get one. . They are disap
pointed, dissatisfied and dejected.
In this state of suspense and chagrin,
they are easy victims to the saloon
temptation, and then follows all the
follies and vices which so abundant-
y accompany the -curse of liquor
drinking. The trade from this en
campment will be a rich harvest for
the saloon8, and other questionabe
resorts ; and the money spent at these
places will find its way into other
channe of trade. But the Herald
contends that money maae at the
sacrifice of morals, whether to the
individual or the public, is ill gotten
gain that brings no permanent bless
ing with It. Time will develop
whether we are wrong, or whether
some of our friends have allowed
their zeal for trade to lead them
nto a grievous error of judgment.
Our friends th enemy, if we are
not mistaken, are playing a shrewd,
sly game. They will uot run any
opposing candidates to our legisla
tive ticket, and their reason is
plausible, and not without truth.
We agree with them that it is a most
excellent ticket; an unusually good
one, and one they could not hope to
defeat But is that all? We sus
pect not. The republicans are rely-
ng upon the apathy In the Demo
cratic ranks to defeat the Demo
cratic nominee for Governor. And
now you begin to see that no fight
in the legislative race will encour
age that apathy in this county, and
may possibly cost Mr. McMillin
some, four or five hundred votes;
and four or five hundred stay-at-
homes here, and four or five hun
dred stay-at-homes there, might
possibly turn the State over to their
little man Fowler and his big Boss
Brownlow. That's the trick, we
suspect; and now you know it, you
know how to prevent it. Go to
the polls and vote, and see that
every Democrat in your neighbor
hood does likewise.
The Herald gives a full report of
the speeches made last Tuesday
by Messrs. Turley, Jones and Car
mack, and further comment is per
haps unnecessary. Tbe audiences
were fairly large, but our regret is
that they were not larger. It was a
Democratic feast none should have
missed. There was much to enter
tain and much to learn, and those
who failed to Improve this opportu
nity should not miss the one to be
afforded them to-morrow. In the
joint debate between Messrs. Mc

That shows that the people want
good men aud will elect them when
they have a chance. It is the fault
of their leaders when the people do
wrong. Left to themselves, with no

"It is a good day for citizenship
when any office goes out searching
for an upright man. This was pleas
ingly illustruted a few days ago
when candidates for the legislature
were being nominated at Columbia,
Maury County, Tenn. L. P. Padg
ett, the well-known Cumberland
Presbyterian ruling elder, who up
on several occasions has so accept
ably served as the temporary mod
erator of our General Assembly, re
ceived, unsolicited, the enthusiastic
nomination at the hands of his fel
low citizens for the 8tate Senate.
A aispatcn iroin Columbia to a
Nashville paper says: 'At the men
tion of Mr. Padgett's name there
was a prolonged applause, and he
received the nomination on the
second ballot, his opponent having
withdrawn. Mr. Padgett is not only
a leading lawyer of Columbia, but of
the entire State. He is a moral
inin, a staunch Democrat and could
have had the nomination for Con
gress of the Seventh District or any
thing else in the gift of this people
at any time within the past ten
years, but his business would not ad
mit of it, and to-day's nomination
was sprung on him as a surprise and
was wholy unsought.1 After all, in
tegrity counts for more in the end
than mere scheming shrewdness,
and honesty is the best politics."'

anything of the kind. The Apostle
Paul, while In prison at Home, in
