"The sensation of heat," said he, "is nothing but aa impression on the mind; remove that impression and the sensa tion ceases to exist. Ergo, if you do not think about the heat you will remain cool as an icicle." So fur a the sensation of heat in the human body is concerned, it is caused by caloric, or that principle of heat when present in excess, or above that which is nor mal to the human body. It is the reverse of cold. The Esquimaux Indian on arriving at New York in mid-winter, sutlers intensely from heat owing to tbe above law of nature. Shakespeare says, "Pray yon walk softly, do not heat your blood."

Home Troths, Editors Appeal, I had the honor to be a Workingmen s delegate for the nomination ot a candidate for mayor. At that time I and others understood the partr was oreaniv.ed for the purpose of securing honesty capable uuainess men, men or tew words, lor law makers, and honest men Who would impar iiaiiy execute the laws; for I take it that the workingmen ot this section are more interest ed in the sure collection of their honest earn ings and a Fair and impartial execution of the laws than in national finances and other ab struse sciences. Men were to be selected to represent us who were in accord with us. We wanted, and still want, men who will nor only work faithfully for us. but who will stand shoulder to shoulder with us in any emergen cy that can possibly arise. Many of us work ingmen think the Nationalists are not trying to obtain such men. Anyhow, the present ticaet is not maue up ot sucn. in changing the name of the party, real merit and fitness seem t J have been lost sicht oL Some were chosen because they had been prominent Re publicans; others because they are supposed 10 te leaaers or workingmen ; others, again, uecause taey proiess to represent certain na tionalities. All tBis I decidedly obiect to. If it is a national psrty it should be actuated by a national spirit, and know neither creeds parties nor nationalities; but. all as lovai citizens ot a great and generous country, 1.1 A.1 I f ukb meir cnances in a lair, open con vention, relying on their individual merit aione. it mubt be clear to cverv worbinc- m2n wno wisnes to see that the .Nationalists uuve entirely lenorea ine class ot mpn through whom the woikicemcn honed to ob tain a nine snowing.andhave placed on their ticket men wno have been ODeulv or secretlv striving for office with this or that party for years. We want men who have neither sought cor held office.

The big Democratic rally was held cn the Blutt last night. At seven o'clock the gun squads began firing salutes, which were kept up till eight o'clock. At that time the stand, which was erected on the south side of the Chickasaw Guards drill-ground, was filled, as were also the seats in front of the stand. A big bonfire. put pn the edge of Lhe bluff lighted up the entire grounds, vr! the lamps on the stand shed a brilliant light, far over the large crowd of citizens. Seats were provided tor twelve hundred persons; these seats were filled, and far beyond and all around the speaker's stand crowds of peo ple, both white and colored, stood up for three hours and a half and listened to the speakers. At least two thousand people were present. The Bluff City band (colored) made music for the occasion, and enlivened it consider ably. A colored drum and fife corps also discoilised cood music for the rally. On the stand, appeared Colonel J. W. Clapp, Attor- ney-Ueneral Luke v right, uenerai ti. W, Gordon. Mr. W, L.

People thought he had received a sunstroke, and inquiries were made for a doctor. The insensible man was conveyed to the station house by tbe police. In his pocket was found a flask of common whisky. He was set down on the docket as "drunk," and was sent to the rear to be locked up for a while until he sobered up. V e were shown vesterdav hv Mr. f!

It is a simple yet ingenius machine that can be readily attached to a pencil, with which columns of figures of any length are added up with the speed of thought, the little contrivance accurately recording the result on its "face," exemplifying truly the adage that "figures won't lie." It is like the mariner's chronometer, the sun, moon and stars may vary, but it never does. It is so simple in iu operations that a child intelligent enough to add two figures together can, by its aid, mas ter columns of any length and as rapidly as the moat expert accountant.

W, Jones & Co Judge Brown was introduced and said those who Kiye counsel snd advice to their fellow-men assume responsibility for siic'h ad vice. He belonged to a class of adventurous politicians who took the liberty of thinking and studying the political questions of the day, and he took the liberty of giving advice to his tellow-men, and would do so honestly and intelligently, with the present light) be tore him. lie sketched the political condi tion ot the country and the questions now pending which interested all citizens of this republic. They, for years past, had grappled great questions. which involved the liberties of the people many of these questions had been settled, but others remain unsettled questions which still divide the people of this republic. These questions destroy the cohesion of the repub lie, and we yet lack (hat unity of feeling which should exist between citizens of the same government. As to the great questions of thirty years past, our great political party had . proven true to the best interests of the republic. It was the only political power which now had the capacity, the will and the determination to solve tbe present problems to the benefit of all the people. When that party ceased to have this power, or will, he would select some other party which hud the power and will to act with the best interests of this people in - view For the past ten years the Democratic and Conservative party in the south has stood firm in tavor ot local selt-government, and opposed that power which favored bayonet rule and oppressed the people. Immediately after the war the people of the south had to attend to the labor question ; they had no time to attend to questions of finance. They were alone fighting lor personal and political liberty, and in that struggle the Democratic party north had assisted them, and tbey helped to turn tbe scale in tavor ot the south, which resulted in the restoration of the liberties of the southern States The last Stite in t'ae Union has been relieved from bayonet-rule. No soldier walks abroad to frighten the citizen, and every municipal government is free to-day throughout this broad land of freedom. Are you willing to deny fo the Democratic party the praise for these great results i JJut they say new ques tions have arisen. Yes, and because the south has become free; but are we of the country entirely free? Is there not danger of the establishment of a military power in the land ? An imperialism which threatens the people in the future? The great ques tions are the labor question; the question of bread and meat, which concerns the fortunes of the people, who produce the wealth of this country The money non-producing power has grown with enormous strength in this land. Poverty has become, it seems, a term of reproach. owing to the birth of a rotten aristocracy which seeks to govern this country at tbe ex pense of the laboring man. He thought at times that the Democratic party had not ad' vanced with sufficient rapidity. He had criticised that party many times. When congress assembled tbe bondholders ruled. owing to a series of legislative acts procured by corrupting Federal councils. The bond holder increased the national debt and dimin ished the values of everything. The bond holder was not content with greenbacks: he wanted gold, and by legislation secured it. The last congress succeeded in restoring to the people as a factor the silver dollar, thereby relieving the people ot the debt, lie was sorry that several southern representatives were not on the side of the people in that struggle. The Democratic congress, however, did relieve the people, and for it deserves thanks. Congress, while defective in many things, arrested extravagant expenditures. When the country was on the eve of a revo lution, the southern Democracy acquiesced and aided in accomplishing a compromise of the complications which again threatened to plunge the country into war. The Democ racy has commenced the work of relief of the people, so lar as finances are concerned, and has arrested the licentious arm of military power in this country. He Judge tSrownl was a Greenbacker. lie believed in that currency. Every war-blighted land in modern times has had to resort to a paper currency to relieve the people from financial distress and take them through financial embarrassments which appeared on every hand. There are many Democrats who do not believe in that theory, but the great mass of the Republican leaders oppose the paper l - il l : 1 1 1 'PI party arrested contraction of the people's money, and that parly will go on to perfect that policy. The national bank system will be extirpated, and the greenback policy must take its place it is the money ot the people. The government should not delegate to corporations the privilege ot manufacturing money tor the country. The Wall street sharks will say that a green back dollar is not as good as a gold dollar, but the psople do not say so, nor was the as sertion true, lie said to tbe .National party that there is much in their platform that he approved, but before that party can do any thing it must get possession ot all btate gov ernmenta and the national government. The Democratic party is the only one which has the power to carry out the ideas of the Na tionalists, and they should ally themselves with tbe Democratic party for that purpose. This is the only organization at present that promises the relief that the .National party desires. Judge Brown closed his brilliant and statesmanlike speech, of which the above is but a brief synopsis, amid applause. Republican porly, "lou held possession of the government, of all its departments, for years, and you are responsible for all these evils which attiict us." Let the Nationals look before they leap, to look well before thty leap, or else they may be "leaving the ills they have; to fly to others that they know not of. The south, taken as a section of country, has uniformly been Democratic. We had two schools of politicians; one tbat is tempted to consolidate power in the hands oi a lew to make this country an ol'garchy the other school wanted to enlarge the powers of the people, because the government was made for the people, not the people for the govern ment. The parties still exist, and you have always seen southern statesmen standing by the bulwarks of the constitution and defend ing the rights of the people, Hence the southern people were members of the Demo cratic party. Before the war the Whig party honorably contested for power with the Democratic paity; but even then the south remained Democratic. But now the men ot t? reat Vea are together, standing shoulder to shoa:a?t in defense of the rights of citizens. The Republican party intended to go outside of the constitution, and Crush out liberty in the south. Andrew. Johnson a Democrat sought to defeat the infamon riiasffres' of pfojEfrip tion and oppression about to be efcforted by the Republican party," and for this did that infamous party seek his destruction, so that they m'ght continue to oppress the south. He Judge dapp warned the people that the Trojan horse was. sought to be introduced uaoer th9 guise of Nationalism. The tread of Grantism was heafJ & oer the land, and the people were cruelly op pressed. The Republicans are responsible lor our present financial condition. They, soon after the war, flooded the country with paper money amounting to two thousand million'! of dollar: This inflated Values, property ran tip rapidly,' and everything was beyond its real value. Then they commenced contracting, converting that money into bonds, and thus created a bonded aristocracy in the land. They swept out of existence the vast tide of money and then created an enor mous shrinkage, which destroyed the land Our financial troubles tdav mav be placed directly to that party, which to-day attempt to lake ontroi once again ot the government. W hen the Democratic party got into power it had control ot one branch ot the govern' ment n!y. The Democrats restored the sil ver dollar aa a Circulating medium, they nave brought greenbacks into circulation, and have reduced the expenditures more than flfiy million dollars a year. All this was done in the face.ot the fact tbat the Republican party bad control of the other branches of the gov ernment, and sotight to obstruct in every manner the efforts ot the Democrats to assist the people and restore financial confidence. The Nat onal party asks for economy. Will the Nationalists t-trike hands with the Re publican party, that has ruined the industrial condition ot the country and op pressed the laboring men, or will they join the Democratic party, that has always stood by the people and de fended their liberties. The Nationalists claim that they are the friends of the work ingman. They nid-:t, then, either act with the party that has been the patron of the bondholders, who pay no taxes nor support tne government, while the workingmen pay the taxes and support tbe government,- or they must join tbe Democratic party, which opposes those vile, oppressive measures car ried out by the Republican party. The Dem ocratic party was never known to steal, and it has gone as far as it could go in congress to relieve the people, i ou have two parties be fore you. and vou must choose between them. Judge Clapp made an eloquent appeal lo the .Nationalists, the Irishman, the German, and other citizens of ioreign birth who came to this land in search of freedom. He recog' nized on the opposition ticket many known to the class ot historic carpetbaggers; men, who, as Horace Greeley eaid, as soon as they went I 1 1 1 1 . i ; 1 1 and the other hand in his pocket. He also saw with sorrow on the opposition ticket sev' eral of his old Democratic triends. He re gretted to see this, but to them he could sav "I have loved you like a child, but good-bye: you have got in bad company and you must go." Judge Clapp concluded his address amid loud cheers from the crowd. JUDGE J. W. CLAPP. Judge Clapp appeared in front of the stand and was received with applause. He did net propose to detain the meeting any great length of lime. He did not intend f o tret inta any elaborate discussion of the great ques tions Ot the day. To-dav in tbia republic they had a new clement of public disturbance and apprehensions. Over two millions of our lellow-citizen8 are now looking and crying for bread all over his broad land. Why are we starving in the midst of abundance? Thin has put men thinking, and inquiring how has this happened, and who can lead ns out of the wilderness of tronhle. It is this that has caused the third oartv to arise, and the leaders say that that party is to be the Moses which will lend us out of our troubles, lhe evils which afflict the country are either the result of bad government or the want of good government, the result of kmjrance or corruution. or mav be LoLb. hj CC.n we DUt our hands nnon and uc. Thou art the man?" We can aav to the r - itn W "I ATTORNEY-GENERAL WRIGHT. General Luke E. Wright was the next speaker. He was glad to see the outpouring of the people. It spoke in unmistakable lan guage that, whatever croakers and malcon tents may say, the people are fully alive to the occasion. The ensuing election will de termine who shall govern your local offices tor eight years, and will give shape and form to tbe elections that will come alterward. it will determine, for weal or woe, whether you will be governed by men of sense and hon esty, or by the demagogue or tbe irrepressible blatherskite. It will determine whether or not you will place in power the leeches and blood-suckers who ruioed the land before. The Democratic ticket presents a list of can didates worthy of your indorsement and suf frage, and you have met to ratify these nom inations. By comparison with other candi dates presented by other political parties, are they not more worthy of your suffrage? You should pause and think who you will select to serve and rule you for the next eight years. There is no remedy for secret filching or in competency on the part of public servants except by the great remedy of impeachment. The people, then, should look well and deter mine who shall govern this county for eight years to come. He did not address the bloat ed capitalist, but the lowly and the humble. He addressed the man of humble means the capitalist can take care of himself and he asked them to pause and reflect. Did they propose to place over them men whose only merit is their powi-r to please the fancy; men who were irresponsible, and whose charac ters etink in the nostrils of all honest men? He spoke to all cl-tsses of men, and asked them, it the laws, remained unvindicated, whose property sul!'- red? Not the man who could fly away on ii:-; wings of the wind, but the man who was tiod to the sou by every consideration. The ticket of the new party. which, when born, failed to be christened or given a name, is in the held, i-our or hve ot the men on the present Democratic ticket were elected almost unanimously four years ago, under the tsartlett movement. It you want your luaicial business properly administered in the criminal court, you will have to vote for General L. B. Horrigan as your criminal court judge; if you do not want it properly administered, you must select some other man. irresponsible clacquers may howl, and blackguards and demagogues may roar, but the majesty ot the people will al ways arise and control tbe detiuies ot the people. If this was ouly an election of the fittest, there would be no need of a party, He did not altogether indorse the convention system; it is a necessary evil, and he would always prefer to rely upon a majority of the people than to their delegates in a con vention. The Radical party - of Shelby county to-day rears its brazen front and offers to step forward and takes possession ot the affairs of the county The history of that party is anything but good. The Radicals pretend to be the friend ot the colored man. Ihey recommended fru gality to the colored man so tbat they would accumulate their earnings, so that they, the iiepublicans. could steal it from the r reed man's bank. So long as the colored man ties himself to the ekirls ot the Radical party he has no destiny in this country. To-day a little coterie of white men pretending to be the repository of the Republican party, and another lot ot irrepressible men, meet in se cretand tell the colored man how to vote and who to vote for. The Radicals have used their power for a selfish and an unholy end. and the sufferings of the workingman to-day are attributable to their misgovern ment General Wright gave a history of the Radi cal party on the financial question, and showed how their policy was ruinous to the workingman all over the country. The Radi cal party ha? brought about the state of pov erty and destitution now felt in the land Who are the men who com pose the Radical party to-day? They had not a word to Bay when this country was Buttering from oppres sion, yet they now sing syren songs in the ears of the Nationalist and the colored man When the people of the south were disfran chised did any of these Republican leaders raise their voices against ltr Ihey now come forward in a new role aa the champion of the working man They love the workingman. they would die tor him. When you punch one of these new Nationalists in the ribs, it brings forth the old Radical grin. Mr. Garrett and Mr. Kort recht and others now come forth as the cham pions of the workingman. The tricksters met in secret and bargained and sold men's votes. II would never believe that they can do this; he believed that they sold more than they can deliver. These Republicans are re sponsible for the affections and ills that op press the people at present. The Democratic party has always been a peoples party, and have invited the oppreased ot everv land to come and help to build up a free government. in Rnownotaing days, wuo was it that came as th champion of the man of foreign birth; was it not tne ueruocratic partv i" We ot the south are indebted to the Democratic masses all over the Union for our fn-edom and equal ity unaer tne laws. 1 he Democratic party relieved the States of Louisiana and South Carolina from oppression and military des potism. That party has always raised its voice against the encroachment of the great tyrannical power nponjthe rights and liberties of the people. The Republican party quad rupled the debt of the people by its financial measures; and placed tbe government in the hands of the leech-like bondholder. The Democratic party ha dragged loose from the throats of the people the hands of the moneyed power. The leaders of the Demo oc ratio party did this, and are these men and. that party to be destroyed and abandoned by the working man? If the people of this great valley band together for thfl proioion of their industrial resources, and follow the' lead of the Democratic leaders, there can Le no doubt of our glorious future. But if the laboring people go after strange gods, and fall into the hands of the men who oppressed them, then we have no future save vassalage ad bondage. General Wright closed by ap pealing to tbe people to think and ponder be fore they sold themselfes ont to the Radical party. If they ttood by the Democratic party, then we would march onward to Vic tory. GEN ERAL G. W. fTORDO. General aid he did not intend to make a lengthy speech. Hz was the nomi ne of the Democratic and Conservaurpy for the office of attorney-general of the crim leal court. He had for three and a half years pa"5t been ftttorneV-gerierst of the Bartlett circuit court, and be trusted that hia experi ence had qualified him for the office to which he now aspired. He hoped to meet the ex pectations of the people should he be elected to tbe o2?oe. He intended to be fair, just and impartial to all concerned, and to be dis criminating when necessary. General Gor don eplee4 the duties of an attorney-general. It was not his duty to prosecute every indictment found by a grand jCrj: He owed a duty to the State and a duty to the de fendant. It would not be just to apply the same standard to all men in this world; and here conies in that proper discrimination which ehottld t eerieed by an attorney-general. (Question by a colored man-'Vvhat about nigger jury? . General Gordon- That is a question wholly with another department of the government; I have nothing to do with that. Ueneral Gordon continued his speech by referring t his opponent. Colonel Turner, as a good story-teller; a an . who joined all parties, and who now called hiin"elf a Na tionalist. He General Gordon would not petition the legislature to cut down the fees of the attorney-general's ofhee, but if the legislature did redtiec. . t'em he would acouiesce. The office of attorney-general of the cr.minal court was wentb about si thousand dollars per anndm, and he has td have as assistant, whom he has to pay out of that amount. But if the legislature did attempt to cat down the fees to a point below what tbe duties; were worth; he would enter his protest. General Gordon reviewed a speech made by his oppo nent. Colonel Turnei, a few days' since, at Bartlett. Ue had eaid to Colonel Turner that he might investigate hi3 character and speak of it, but he mutt confine himself to the facts, and he intended to com pel Colonel Tur ner to so confine himself to facts. Colonel Turner had a right to his opinion as to his (General Gordon) incompetency, but he must speak only as to facta as to bis incom petency and none other. , General Gordon read an article from the Ledger dated November 14, 1875, and head ed, "A Verdict Secured by Cards," with ref erence to the Barlett circuit court proceed ings, and charged Colonel Turner with being the author ot it, but Uolonel 1 urner denied it at Bartletf,- but now says ' It was all a joke." He f Colonel Turner! had thrown down the gauntlet, and he General Gordon proposed to take it up. If you want an expert in buf foonery to be attorney-general of the crimi nal court, then vote lor G. P. M. Turner. When hia competitor comes up to make his unscrupulous statements, and then says "it was all a joke," he proposed to show him ud. General Gordon closed his speech by an ap- Beal to the colored people present to vote the democratic ticket and support its nominees. and sat down amid applause. judge j. k. it. bay was the next speaker called upon. He thanked the people tor their kindness in call ing upon him, but as the hour waa late, he would take some other occasion to address his fellow-cit'zens. both white and black. He was as good a National man as any Nation alist, and he referred to his past record as evidence as to what he would do in the fu ture, if elected. He could give no better as surance as to what he would do than this. Judge Ray retired, and was loudly cheered. MR. JAMES M. GREER. Mr. Greer stated that he was not on the list of regular speakers. He ratified the nom inations made by the Democratic convention. and he expressed it as his conviction tbat the nominees were wisely chosen. He believed the Democratic party was the only one able and willing to fight corruption in and out of office. He had no word of abuse for those people who had allied themselves with other parties in opposition to Democracy. He closed his short but appropriate speech with a quotation from the poets, which was well received. MR. J. A. STREHL. nominee of the Democratic party for the office of county register. If the people would favor him by electing him to that position he would be thankful. MR. GEORGE G. DENT. nominee of the Democratic party for the of fice of attorney-general of the Bartlett cir cuit court. He pledged himself, if elected, he would fill the office to the best of his ability, and would punish crime whenever it appeared within the jurisdiction of his court. If the people wanted lo get rid of him they had better send him out to Bartlett. Applause. THE CLOSING SCENE. It was now auart j-Dast eleven o'clock. Mr. W. L. Clapp, chairman of the executive com mittee, went to tbe front and was about to make a statement, when the crowd called upon him to say something. He replied: "I was about to say something. I am one ot the small guns, and I came here to hear the big ger guns talk. At some future time I shall be pleased to make a speech, but at the pres ent time I have only to say that as the hour is late we will close the meeting. There will be a Democratic meeting held in the ninth ward next Saturday night, to which I invite all here present." Cheers. The big crowd slowly dispersed, the speakers' stand waa de serted in a few seconds, the lights went out rapidly, the guns on tbe blult shot oft tare well salutes, and the reporters of the Appeal and Avalanche gathered up their lores et pe nates in the shape of paper, pencils, knives, fans, etc, and left on their way rejoicing, after three and a quarter hours labor in be hah of the Democratic party of Shelby county.

Logwood, Judge of tr Crimi nal Court : We have been in session fcrty-three days since tbff beginning of the term; have bad before us one hun dred and fifty-three presentments, from which we have found one hundred and thirty Bvo true bills. The greater part of these were for minor offenses. We visited the various county institutions the Jail, poorhouse, wi rk bouse and pestliouse; found the sanitary condition of all of them very good, and have no complain! to make of the management of any of them. Tbe air, we think, ts In tbe care of a very efficient superintendent, vigilant and watchful. We found In that institution slxty-bve prisoners, of the following cliisser White itiMtp-a twontT white ' females, two; blzck nmle?,thlrty five; black females. lirhL. At me poornouw we lounu one bunureti ana teu. classed n3 follows: Sane white males, twentj- three: white female seventeen; sane black males, sixteen; black females, ten; sane Inmates, sixty-six inmna white males, fourteen: white femaJe, six teen j Insjinn black males, eight: blani females, sl: total tnan. forty-four. Among the Insane class we found some thai oneht to be In some lunatic asylum, n! think It an outrage that our Mate does not make suitable provision for the proper care and treat ment of suW utortunat. We believe Dr. Duncan, who, oy the war, w regard as an excellent ireiitlpm.T?, lire rlgbl man In the r!l nlace. dos and wilt d everything pos sible with the t.Ten afforded him for these ptople: but It Is Impossible give them the attention necessary elsewhere than to some Institution spe?a'.l designed and lined for ot special pur post). The 2oor'a culinary deiiartment t admir able. The inmates rr well fed with good and wholesome diet, well clotuec?, and yet everything Is conducted with an eye to econom.'. At President's Island we found one hundred and twerty-flve pris oners of all kinds; males, black, one hund"d: fe males. Mack, nine; males, white, lirteen; females, white, one: general halth good, and seemed to be wl eared for bv Cant&tn Forrest and his assistants. At the peethpuse there were but two inmates. Es quire Hoegei and bis acompllshed eateier. They both semed to be weH cared for. The former ap peared to have just recovered from the snt&ti-pox, Love. We would suggest the propriety of some Improvement being made to protect toe cRizens at that pia-.e from cioaciimenw being niade by tins rats, which should be don very soon to prevent seri ous damage to the clstem. its present the outlay wo'tW be small. We think It wouM re economy to muk ft. The bonds of county onicers veie rigidly examlued rind found satisfactory. We hear com plaints of the cofidtlon of some of our public ronxi. hut nruin a tuorough Iftwtlgation we believe thai the main trouble Is the wart f bridging rather than negligence of tbe overseers. We would. In this connection, suggest that a commissioner b sent out on Union avenue and see what bridge work lneS essary to be done to put tbat road In goon order. We would also suggest the propriety ot a change. In our road law. The present mode of working the roads by appflntmeot of hands for each road is defective as well as lmfrracflcabto. A large proportion of these hands are very poor and are neither able nor wilting to give their time or labor :or this purpose. We are clearly of tne opinion ihnt tax levied fcr the purpose of btldlnff and keeping ruads In repair would prove more saii5iaiory k me puuuc win us better roads than the present mode of working them ; besides, we think It would be more euultable and Just. A publle road is a public benelU, and should be kept np by tbe public. But this Is a mat ter for the consideration of cwr legislative solons, and to their better Judgment we will leave iu We now approach a subject, one that is more difficult of solution than any cist perhaps tbat has ever tor tured the brain of our lesrsletlve fathers, the social evil, or as It Is sometimes termed ir-e nec?ssary evil. How to abate this evil has occupied the serious con sideration of the Jury; tbat It can be suppressed we do not believe. Then It seems to be the part of wis dom to devise some means by which It may be shorn of at least some of Its most odious features. This, we think, could be done, not by the methods now used to-wlt, that of Indict ing them three or four times a year and Imposing flues and penalties but, by Judicious legislation, drive them from the main tuorough fares of the city, force them to locate In the suburbs In some particu lar locality, restrict thein to that locality, and Instead ot paying fines, require them lo pay a tax. If, In order to do till-, a change in our constitution is nec essary. It ought to be changed. If this Is not practi cable, then our legislature might enact a more stringent law against parties who rent houses used forthls purpose, except it be In the precise dis trict assigned to them, where the institution Is tol erated. We object to tbe system ot fines; it Is op pressive, and accomplishes no good. In closing our report, the grand Jury tender their thanks to his honor and the officers of tbe aourt lor courtesies shown during our term of service. T. B. Haynes, Foreman; J. A. Shane, A. E.
