that plan has already been once fiied

much is at stake it is worth finding out;

A. proposition has been made to the

ths tax-payers from heavy Iosp. As it
is, the read la tying idle, with little pres

therefore so much dead stock in the

The election cf Colonel Leath to the
office of superintendent of the public
schools gives very general satisfaction,
especially to those of the teachers who
served with him in 1869, in which year
he held the same position. With an
unquestioned ability as an executant, he
also has experiencs, and we are satis
fied will keep the schools up to as
high a condit:on of efficiency as the
public demands and ths means at his
disposal will permit of. He returns to
his old position at a time when, in the
minds of many, there is room for reform
in Echcol management; but, conterva
tive as be is, we have full faith there
will be no radical changes, and that
whatever he may suggest or order, will
be for the advancement of the schools
and scholars. Of course he will resign
his position as polics commissioner.
Who will be elected In his place?
It Is said that Hon. Dorssy E. Thomas
has announced it his intention to sup
port Tilden and Hendricks, but run for
governor on an independent ticket. We
trust this is not so. Mr. Thomas is a
gentleman of experience in political
matters, and must know that it would

President and Vice-President of the
United States. It would be impossible
for him to advacca his own Interests as
an independent candidate for governor
without affecting Tilden and Hendricks
unfavorably. We hope, therefore, if It
be true that he has announced himself
an independent candidate for governor,
that he will reconsider his determina
tion and placs him. elf in full sympathy
with his party.
But a President ia not what he chooses
to bs; he is what bis associations and
circumstances make him. We propose
to elect next November not an absolute
ruler, but a chief executive. Oar votes
will decide not only who occupies the
White House, but who stand around
him, and what sort of men make the
laws. Behind the President will always
be the party which chose him. 11 is not
enouah that the President be honest, if
his party is full of rascality and deceit.
Vn Vnrk IViImiic
Gentlemen in Memphis who are Just
now wavering ns to what side they
shall take in the Presidential contest
will do well to read the above carefully,
and to remember especially the Hues we
have italicized. If Hayes is elected, it
will be cot only him, bat the party that
electa him that we will have to deal with.
That party is a dishonest party. It sup
ports and Indorses Grant, and therefore
unb'ushingly thoulders all the crimes of
his administration. In electing Hayes
It does not change. It remains the same,
and, wa may reasonably expect, will,
through Hayes, continue its nefarious
plans and purposes of robbery and
wrong. This is worth remembering.

the killed is estimated at three hundred,
with only thirty-one wounded. The
Indians surrounded Reno's command

Washington, July 6. The news of
the death of General Custar. and the
terrible disaster reported from the west,
creates a profound sensation here, par
ticularly in army circles. Up to noon
there had been no official advices n.t the
war department. Secretary Cameron,
General Sherman and Lieutenant Gen
eral Sheridan are in Philadelphia,. A
number of persons, anxious about the
fate of friends in the Indian country,
have visited the war department to-day.
General Custer being a native of Mich
igan, the congressional delegation from
that State, as well aa his brother army
officers and others, were deeply pained
by the report of hia deatn. Hon. T. W.
Ferry, president of the senate, who was
a warm personal friend of General Cus
ter, visited tne war department early,
but was informed that no particulars
had been received.
Philadelphia, July 6 Regarding
the reported killing of General Custer,
and the massacre of his forces, neither
General Sherman nor General Sheridan,
both of whom are now lu tho city, have
received any confirmatory information.
General Sherman says: "I don't believe
it, and I don't want to believe It, if I
can help it." General 8beridan siys he
would like very much to disbelieve it,
but hia feara that It ia true are stronger
than hia hopes that it is not. He said

Custer lead an expedition of about eight
hundred men up the stream, and to ef
fect a junction with Gibbon's command
on tbe south side of tbe Yellowstone,
at its junction with the Big Horn; this
is on tne southern part of Montana. It
was then Terry's purpose to be himself
at this junction, where Custer's and Gib
bon's were named. If Gibbon's reached
the junction of the Big Horn and Yel
lowstone first, he was to march up the
former and meet Custer, who was di
rected to much down. General Sheri
dan says that from what has been re
ported, I infer that General Cueter met
the savages in force on his way toward
tbe junction, and made a daring eflfjrt
he was always brave and daring to cut
his way through the enemy, who filled
the stretch ot country separating tbe
two forces. I do not like to believe that
the news is as terrible as it is reported,
and yet there is no reason why the dis
patches should not come direct from
Fort Ellis, the nearest pest to the scone
of conflict, as the lines, I understood,
were recently in good woiklng order.
The society of tbe Army of the Cum

ing for the eastern branch of the little
Big Horn. General Terry, with Gib
bon's command of five companies of in
fantry and four of cavolry, started
to ascend the Big Horn to attack the
enemy in the rear. On the morning
of the twenty-llfth two Crow scouts
brought news cf a battle on the pre
vious day. Upon the receipt of this
news the command commenced to
march in a siutberly direction, where
smcke could be seen, which indicated
that General Custer had fired the Indian
village. On the next morning tbe bead
of the column entered a plain bordering
on tbe bank of the Little Big Horn riv

length. The ground was strewn with
slaughtered horses, cwalry equip

referred to some statement he had seen
in the Tribune and other papers about
the abuses at Fort Si 1; he spoke to Mr.
Beid about it, and told him be thought
it was u a true: the Tribune used t)
have statements about the army, and he
told Mr. Beid tbat the Irtbune was
never right on military ma'ters, even by
mistake; Mr. Beid replied t-iat the arti
cle was true, aud there was moze behind
it: witness subsequently came to
Washington and sought the secretary
of war, celled hia attention to the state
ment, and said mat it was a bard thing
upon the people of Fort Sill to have to
pay this heavy tax, and that tbe abuse
would be damaging unless corrected.

up an order to correct tbe evil, and he
dideo; it was understood that the order
was to correct all the evils which ex
isted at Fort Sill ; the eecreUry said that

Washington. July 2. Congressman
Hamilton, of Indiana, left for home this
morniDc, and, having two wee&s leave,
does not expect to return this session.
He is chairman or the bud committee on
foreign affairs.having charge of the Chi
nese ircmlgration question, and is in
structed to make an adverse recott on
the joint resolution offered early in the
session cy Congressman P-per, of San
Francisco, requesting the President to
have the Burlingame treaty modified so
as to prohibit Chinese immigration to
the United States. It is understood that
the committee, a majority Democrats,
could not 8se their way clear to recom
mend the proscription of the people of
one, more than the people of another na

tion not so sweeping as Piper's b fore
the committee of commerce, which was
introduced by Mr. Page, of California.
As this does not meet tho approbation
of Piper, and he is a member of the

Dubuque, Iowa, July 5. A fearful
storm swept over this city Jast night,
carrying death and des ruction in its
wake. Biln commenced falling about
ten o'clock, and continued for three
hours with a solid sheet of water, ac
companied with thunder and lightning,
making the worst storm ever experi
enced. Death and destruction are visi
ble on every side, all the bridges on the
wagon roads and railroads are swept
away, and no trains can arrive or depart
for several days. Houses were carried
down stream by the torrents, and their
occupants drowned. Collars are filled
with water, the streets ara washed out,
live stook drowned, and mourning fakes
the place of joy.
Tbe village of Bockdale, twenty-seven
miles from this city, built in a ravine on
a stream, waa inundated at tho dead
hour of night, while the storm was rag
ing and the lightning flashing, by the
breaking away of a mill dam Eome dis
tance up tbe stieim. From the rush of
water every building in the place was
swept away by tbe flood, except the
mill, and their occupants carried away
and drowned.
Bockdale is a smell place of about two
hundred inhabitants, kullt upon a creek.
and contained a postoffice, bote), store,
and other structures. The rain fell in a
solid body for three hours, the creek
rose to the size of a river, and at about
oue o'clock, while the lightning was
flashing and the thunder roll inc. the res
ident were terror-stricken with the rush
or mighty waters In and about them.
Every building In tho place except the
mill was carried down stream or moved
from its foundation. A inlll-dam some
distance up tho stream broke away and
let down tbo water in a body. After the
storm had absted search was made, and
luny-iwa persons were round to be miss
ing. Of this number nineteen dead
bodies of men, women and children were
picked up along the stream. Death and
desolation are Eeen on all sides. The
scene, with the shrieks of women and
children in tbo blackness of tho night,
waa uearirenuiDg. search is being made
for those still missing. The railroad
bridge at that place la carried away and
the road made imnasaable. All tho mil.
roads have suffered with washouts. No
trains have arrived or departed to-day
from any section.
Chicago, July 6. A later disnatch
from Dubuque, Iowa, give3 thefollowing
li3t of those who are lost by the flood at
Rockdale, Iowa: Joseph Becker, Ellen,
hia wife, and two children: James
Pearce, Eaoma, his wifr. and two child

er the scene waa one to touch a heart.
Thousands of people have visited tbe
sceno during tho day, and people are
going and coming constantly. The
neighbors, with kindly alacrity, opened
their doers to such of the sfflicted as re
mained, and offered every comfort In
their power. The bodies of the dead
were washed by kind hands, and many
of them taken into the dwellings near
by. Tho members of tho board of
supervisors were early on tho ground,
worfelng like Trojans to recover
the dead and give care to the livinsr.
Coroner Cookley has imminnelled a
jary,andwas about beginning aninquost

found. Wm. Walters, Wm. Coates, and
the board of county supervisors have
labored with untiring industry to aid
tho sufferers and to recover the dead.
from the scene of ths Bockdale disaster
say that with tho coming of daylight a
largo rorce or men renewed tbe search
for missing bodies. Up to this time but
one man has been found, and that by a
girl named Minnie Bsver. The finding
ot this body confirms the fears of yester
day mat a more were missing than re
ported. The number lost is forty-one, of
which thirty-three have been recovered.
The funeral services are being held on
the banks of the ttream for such of the
dead as havo surviving friends, but the
greater number who have been swept
out of existence will have to be buried
by the county. It is thought some of
tbe missing bodies have been swept into
the Mississippi aud will never bs recov
