The Memphis Liie Journal for Septem

juet bern issued. The appearance and con
tents of the present number which com

that the Journal is rapidly working itself
into favor, both with the legal profession and
the public. "Is the bar unpopular'!1" is dis
cussed editorially in an able manner, the ar
gument going to Ehow the unreasonableness
of the pooular prejudice, and illustrations
given to exhibit how much of this prejudice
has been created by the overdrawn charac
ters of novelists, taken from the lowest in
stead of the highest rank of the profession.

ideas of Pestalczzt and Froebel have taken

objects, as set forth in the prospectus, are
the cultivation of the perceptive faculties,
obseivation rather than memory alone, habits
of correct expression, of original thought,
exercises in composition, physical training.
music and;drawing;in'short, that symmetrical
development which has always been a lead
ing principle in this school. As a permanent
feature in Memphis educational circles, we
recommend this school in all departments.
Promises made by its managers are never
vain, in all its appointments tne school is
attractive. Five teachers of reputation and
experience are employed in the literary de
partment. Latin is taught daily without
extra charge. 1 rot. VVitztnan visits the
pchool to teach modern languages. Mr,
Merrit has an interesting class in painting.
Every advantage is offered in music. The

Insurance, Etc.
About three o'clock this morning a fire
broke oat in Heiliger's bakery (formerly Ber-
ton's confectionary), corner of Fourfch and
.... .
Poplar streets, the flames being brstdi3c.ed
in the bake-room in the cellar, and in a few
moments the entire building was in flames,
the occupants barely escaping with their
lives. The adjoining tenement build
ings (all brick) on Poplar and Fourth streets,
soon caught fire, and, for a time, baffled the
efforts of the firemen. So quick was the
entire corner, including the adjoining
building, in flames, that the women and
children had to be driven out barefooted, in
their night clothes, on the snow-covered
streets. The cries, groaning and weeping
of the children was heartrending. The west
wall of Heiliger's bakery, fronting on Fourth
street, fell in, causing the flames to burst up
with renewed energy, several of the firemen
narrowly escaped from being caught beneath
it. The inflammable material inside the
bakery fed the flames to such a heat that the
water thrown by the engines seemed to have
little effect. The firemen pressed on with
characteristic perseverance, pouring torrenU
of water into the seething mass of fire and
flame, but little was accomplished until the
entire contents of the building were con
sumed. All efforts were directed to saving
the adjoining property, which seemed for a
time destined to the fate that had befallen
Heiliger's building. There was a strong
breeze blowing from the northeast, which
carried sheets of (lime and burning fire
brands to the roofs of the buildings on
Wash ington, Fourth, Poplar, and as high up
as Third street. When the flames burst into
the up-stairs of the adjoining unoccupied
building heavy, black columns of smoke
rushed through the roof as if several barrels
of coal-oil had bursted. It was afterward
discovered that the upper stories of the entire
block of buildings had been on fire some
time, the flames being confined within the
rooms until the falling of the corner building
caused them to break cut afresh. The
building was the property of Mrs. Stillman,
who, it is said, had no insurance
Mr. Heiliger stated that his stock acd
fixtures amounted to about five thousand
dollars, on which he had policies of insurance
t the amount of one thousand dollars each in
the agencies of Sturm & Hirsch, Carrington
Mason, andTonilinson, aggregating three
thousand dollars. As we go to press the fiie is
burning, with little prospect of the firemen
djing more than saving the property adjoin

by the excitement caused by the fire as to
become nearly insane. She was carried into

Educational.
It is quite remarkable that intelligent peo
ple who properly appreciate excllenee in
education, will consider no sacrifice too great
to secure the very best moral, intellectual and
physical training tor their children.
True refinement and virtue are due
to excellence in education, so that what
ever honesty, truthfulness, industry, en
ergy, temperance, courage, chanty, or any
other virtue may be found in the individual.
or in a community, all owe their existence to
proper training in youth. In nothing else is
it as important to prefer "excellence to cheap
ness," or to remember that "an once of pre
ventive is worth a pound ot cure, than in
the education of children. Tho Christian
Brothers' college offers every advantage fcr
the education ot young men and boys. Its
reputation is a most enviable one, aud is, of
itseif, a high recommendation to the citizens
ot Memphis.

Me-srs. John Overton. W. IL Wood, M. L.Meacham,
w. t. layior, auaotners:
Gentlemen Your communication of this
date received and I respond briefly to its in
quiries. On the first of July last, our finan
cial statement shows the entire indebtedness
ol the city to have been f 1,669,854 76. This
grand aggregate n made up as follows:
Under bonded debt S2,Khsi.ooo 00
Fast due bjiided debt 71.000 00
Interest coupons due 3K5.220 00
T. E. Brown. Judgment without Int. . 102,122 Wl

with 55 per cent Interest on same. 735.07r 27
Judgment debts 352.723 52
SuuUii Indebtedness 12S.7I3 04
Total debt 84.003,854 7rt
Total bonded debl Vi.HKH.IMH) 1)0
Total due debt $1,780,854 70
The bonded debt above stated includes
$335,000 compromise bonds. After giving
credits for payments made since July 1st, I
do not suppose the indebtedness has been in
creased more than f 100,000. Our total debt
to-day must be about $ 4,770,000. Our nom
inal assets on the first day of July last were
$2,265,245 01. To these must be added the
taxes of 1878 to get our present assets.
These will be about $600,000, making total
assets $2,805,215 01. This is the situation
proximately st jted :
Liabilities 84,770.000
Nominal assets 2 ,805,245
But cn the city carry the debt if it were
funded as contemplated. The availability of
these assets will determine the amount of
the funded debt. Lit us examine them:
City treasurer's cash forvarlous funds. 804,010 4i5
United Slates marine account due the
city 3.080 50
Ten compromise bonds In toe hands of
the sinking fund commissioners 10.C00 00
Bonds due by purchasers of city's stock
In Memphis and Charleston railroad
company, secared by ttust deed 45,01 HI oo
Eight bonds held aicolliujral security. 8.00O OO
Cash iu hand sinking fund commission 350 31
Making a total of 8131,047 27
available immediately for the payment of
debts. Add to this 450,000 of 6iX,0(X) of
the taxes of 1878, and we have $581,147 47,
which would extinguish that much cf our
debt. Deduct this amount from $1,770,000.
and we have $1,188,852 53 as our debt, and
leaving as assets $2 234,098 54. Now deduct
the Sij.OOO compr-imise oonds from our
debt of $1,188,853 53, and we have $:;,353,
852 53 as our unf'tind- d dtbt. Of the remain
ing assets, $2,231,097 51, there will be about
$2,000,000 in back taxes. Inasmuch as any
kind of city indebtedness can pay these back
taxes levied before 1875, except school or
special taxes, then we surely can absorb
$1,000,003 of indebtedness in this way. I do
not count the interest on any of thee taxes,
which will amount to several hundred thou
sand dollars. Deduct this million thus taken
ud in the payment of taxes from the unfund
ed debt. $3,353 852 53, tnd we have
left $2,353,852 53 to be funded. We
sow have remaining nominal assets
$1,284,097 54. This, with the entire inter
est on the $2.24,097 54, I throw away as
unavailable. This would seem to be a liberal
estimate of unavailable asseU. Fund the
$2 353,852 53 at fifty cents, and we have $1,
176,925 26; to this add the bonds already
funded, and our entire funded debt will be
$2,011,926 26. Taking into consideration
the bonds funded since last July, the debt
would not be over $2,000,000. Can the city
carry this debt ? 1 will state the liabilities
and assets, and submit the question to the
judgment of an enlightened public:
For current expenses, siy 8250.000
Interest on f undid debt 120 000
Annual liabilities $370,000
Two per cent, on $2,000,000 wil raise
$400,000; from privilege of markethouse,
wharfage, marine account, recorder's court,
etc., $100,000; total annual assets, $500,000.
Annual liabilities, $370,000. Thus it will be
seen with such a tax upon values there would
be a surplus cf $1:50,000.
I confess I feel gratified to see something
like general interest being now manifested iu
tho settlement of our debt. I have felt rather
lonesome from the want of a general co-operation
on the part of our citizens in my efforts
f r the last eighteen months to compromise
this debt. It is a good 6ign to see our people
waking up to its great importance, even at
this late day. Without the extremest remedy
I could conceive of no other mode of settle
ment than by a compromise, and believed
then and now that this would be mutually
beneficial to creditor and debtor. The cred
itors bonds have fallen in value just as the
city has grown weaker. Ten years ago yes,
less than two years, these securities were
worth forty cents; to-day, about twenty-six
cents on the dollar. The interest which has
been collected by the creditor is not so much
aa the depreciation of bis bonds. But 1 be
lieve what I have written covers yor inqui
ries. Very respectfully,
JOHN B. FLIPPIN, Mayor.

Charged, with Sfoney
not his Own.
For several days the proprietors of Wana
niakcr & Brown's clothing store, 269 Main
street, have been disturbed by the ail?ged
defalcation or appropriations ot one of their
clerks or salesmen, named Bolton, a young
man from Detroit, Michigan. The firm of
Wanarcaker & Brown are supposed to be out
some five or six hundred dollars, and many
others who trusted the young man too liber
ally are cut divers and sundry amounts. Mr.
Bolton has left the city, but Messrs. Wana
maker & Brown are after him, and it is be
lieved that he will bo captured within the
next few days. Several houses were induced
to give up goods upon the representations of
the young man, and a number of acquaint
ances gave up money. When arrested he
will be brought back and the charges thor
oughly investigated.

91 ary Anderson.
To-morrow evening Mary Anderson and
dramatic company will commence an engage
ment at the Theater in Evadne, or The Statue.
Of the role and Miss Anderson, the New York
Times says: "With 'Evadne' Miss Anderson
is in full sympathy. The character is one
that calls for ingenuousness, simplicity, ten
derness, heroism and a degree of passion.
It is a character cut out of marble, aud vivi
fied, spiritualized with a soul. Miss Ander
son suggested this conception, and she was
earnest in her efforts to realize it. She made
the most of her opportunities. At frequent
intervals during the play she rose to a high
degree of power; her large gestures, sweep
ing movements, and resonant voice came into
excellent play. In the second act, where
'Evadne' recoils before 'Vicentio's' accusa
tion, her indignation was expressed with re
markable force. In the street scene, where
the unfortunate lovers are confronted by
'EvadneV angry brother, her despair was
full of btrengtb. Finally, in the statue scene,
all her talents seemed to combine for an
effective climax."
Memphis Theater.
Ths Adah Richmond English opera bouffe
troupe gave a fine rendition of Les Cloches
de Cornecille at the Theater matinee yester
day afternoon, and repeated the comic opera
last night. The troupe is good, possessing
several fine vocalists aud bouffe actors. The
troupe left for Nashville last night, where a
performance will be given to-night.
A Christmas Vlft most Worthily Be
stowed. On the morning of the twenty-fifth instant,
as a memento of their kind regards, the
guests of Airs. Alary J. t'hilnps, at .No. 99
Madison street, in this city, presented to this
most estimable and amiable lady, a most
beautiful silver tea-service, consisting of sev
eral elegant pieces, the minor ones of which
were fitly marked with the donors mono
gram, while the silver tray was adorned with
a fuller dedication. All these nice things
were bestowed as a Christmas gift. The pre
sentation ceremonies were appropriately con
ducted by Mr. Eugene Lynn, who was most
felicitously supported by the elegant and
queenly Miss Ada R'chardson, and the hand
some and sprightly Mrs. Jodie Jones. Such
marks of merited affection and regard tend
not only to greatly cultivate good feeling
among those engaged in them, but also to
encourage others to imitate their good ex
ample. The Greek fabulists were mistaken
when they said that Hope was the only bless
ing lef t in Pandora's box. It was Love, from
which flows all those happy courtesies of civ
ilizdion that flourish in that divine and ever
lasting fountain. p.
