Decides That a Suit rending- Against the
Cir or Memphis When Its Charter
Was Repealed May Be Bevlved
Against the Taxing-District
In th.e Absence of Liability by the Cltl
r.tm for the Debts or tbe Corporation,
and the Power to Tax by the Dis
trict, This is or No Advantage
to the Creditors. '
Special to tns Appeal. I
Jacrson, Tekw., May 15. The supreme
cenrt to-day delivered an important opinion
in the case of O'Conner vs. the Taxing-District
of Shelby county. O'Conner held claims
against the old city of Memphis, and that
corporation being dead by operation of law,
a motion was made to revive the suit against
the Taxing-District, with a view to secure
whatever rights and remedies the complain
ant had against tbe old city of Memphis.
Judge Cooper delivered the opinion ot the
court, and held that a revivor would be grant
ed. Oa that point he ruled as follows:
Where tbe charter of a municipal corporation Is
repealed, and tbe same people and tbe lima terri
tory are reincorporated under a new nam, although
-lib different powers and different officers, a suit
DmmUbsj against tue old corporation as tbe data of
tue repeal ma; be revived against tbe new corpora
tion. The granting of the motion for a revivor is
only a slight skirmish, the important ques
tions involved remaining nntouched by the
court. Upon this question and ruling of tbe
court the fol'owing citations ot law and au
thorities will bs found valuable and interest
ing, not only by the lawyer bat by all other
citizens of the Taxing District.
Tbe defense to tbe eire facia sre not such as go
to tiie original cause of action, but only those which
mar prevent tbe revivor. Bsrrlgan vs. Fleming, 2
Lea. -74
In an earl; ease In Tennessee. It was said by the
courts, that only two points as It respects tbe repre
sentative are called to mind: first, not possessing
tbe itbrtrieter of representative attributed by tho
tcirefiiciat: and, secondly, possessing no Interest In
the subject matter In dispute. Lewis vs. Outlaw. 1
Teni,., 140.
Tne pnrty against whom there Is a revivor takes
up ti e defense as be finds It, and, aa representative,
conducts tbe litigation to Us termination. 2 Lea,
In a simple case of revivor there Is no other fact to
be aoeenained than wbetber tbe new party brought
before tne court bas tbe character Imputed to hlru.
If be bas. the revivor Is of course. 2 Daniel. Cb. Hr.

IStK; Jackson vs. Jackson, 2 Tenn., Legal Bap..
If tbe cause Is revived bfore Judgment or decree,
as In this chm, it stands to be litigated on It - merits.
If tbe complainant recovers Judgment, then comes
tbe Imooitanl question: Can lie net b's money? Tbe
party against whom the suit was revived and against
wbom tne Judgmeut goes la hy no means bound to
pay tbe dec te. If be bave effects of tbe dead man,
in whose place be stands, be must pay out cf such
efforts; otherwise not. If It be a revivor again! a
husband who bas married afier suit began against
lbs wife. In ease of Judgment, he was bound to pay,
wnetber be got property or not by the wife, until our
late statute, wnlcb makes bim liable only so far a
he bas received property by Ibe wife. But this revivor
Is against the Taxing-Dislriot, as representative of
he dead elty. In effect aa administrator of tbe dead
city. It will be held liable only so far aa It bas ef
fects of tne dead city wbicb could bave been sub
jected, pending tbe life of tbe dead government.
Tbe Tsxlmr-Dlstriot bas no sucb effects. Tbe streets
and other public property are not liable. Tbey never

bave been because tbe city did not own It. It could

tion. First, tbe old city Is dead and cannot tax.
Second, tbe Taxing D'.alct bas no power to tax for
any purpoee. A Diandamui will do no good. It does
not give power to tax. It only com Dels Its exercise.

that iniuatice has been' done the Poncas by
removing them from their reservation in Da
kota, but he believed they would have
become reconciled before this time, had they
been left undisturbed by outside influences,
by parties who seemed disposed to keep
up a spirit of discontent among them. He
thought their return to Dakota would renew
the old hostility to them and the Sioux, and
deprecated it tor tbe r. aaon that it would
weaken toe noid or tne government upon
tbe Indian territory by tending to dtsintegra

sire their removal on similar grounds, al-
toouaa no Indians tnere nave so strong a

The following letter finds a place in the
Appeal in answer not only to the gentlemen
to whom it is addressed, but to all the friends
of Colonel Gallaway who have so kindly
pressed upon him a nomination for chief mag
istrate of the State, and who have so gener
ously extended to him proffers of their help
in the achievement of a success that might
well satisfy the ambition of any public
man in Tennessee. The advice
it contains, opportune and safe as it is, and
sustained by the experience of forty years,
ought not to be without effect, and will rot
be with thoughtful men who prefer the suc
cess and perpetuity of" the Democratic' party
and tbe administration of the government

Republicanism. The tribute he pays to Gov

It is dictated by a desire for unity
and peace, as well as sympathy and
comradeship, and will ba appreciated
even by those who may differ with him. It

sincere friendehiD and of a desire to save (he

Memphis, Hay 12, 1880.
Dr. D. Barry, Editor Furdy Bun:
Dkab Sib I have felt no little concern at seeing
some prominence alveo to my name in connection
with the yet remote Democratic nomination for gov
ernor of Tennessee. A tew weeks since Hr. F. S.
Nichols, of tbe Memphis Avalanch. In tbe abun
dance ot bis personal kindness, tbe amiability of
Ills generous heart, and a love for the profession he
adorns, mentioned my name In connection with gu
bernatorial honors. I regarded tbis suggestion as a
mere personal compliment, and it excited no emo
tions save those of gratitude. But since tbe press
of this State, Mississippi, and especially of Alabama-
tbe land of my birth and home of my youth
hare seriously discussed this matter, lam placed
In the peril of being caught on tbe one or the other
born of tbe dilemma, both of which I would fain
avoid . Silence and seemlrg Indifference to tributes
so high and voluntary, would place me In the atti
tude which I shall never occupy tbat of being a
candidate for office. A too hasty declination places
me in a still more unenviable and embarrassing position-that
of conceiving my nomination possible.
Therefore, so long as It seemed p- rmlsslble to re
gard the use of my name as merely complimentary,
I was Inclined to let tbe matter pass. u 'lmfo
But since you have placed my tL,d or
your paper, and a- j6urdeto,mlnBtlon l0
tie lor comlnatlon, propriety will no longer
sanction silence, and t write tbis to say, tbat
while I am profoundly grateful to you for your
kind words and the honor you would oonfer upon
tns, I have never been a candidate fcr oOe, and that
It Is too late In lire 1 9: tat, to aspire to a position un
sulted my taste and which I have no capacity
either to aceclro or to Oil. My man
Poo has been active, sometimes tem
pestuous, but Its day-dream throughout has been
for quiet serenity In tbe evening of life. In my
younger days, wben the future was painted In the
colors of hope, which youth always Inspires, I bad
no aspirations ; and now when I approach tne even
ing of life, nrd tbe Shadows are lengthened and
reverse?, and the mind turns retrospective, 1 cannot
be Induced, under any circumstances, to become a
candidate. On this point I bave a clear view and a
fixed purpose, and without qualification or mental
reservation announce my determination of contin
uing my old avocation that of helping to make
officials, but never to become one. I have
learned during the forty years that I have been con
nected with tbe press, tbat the editor wbo aids in
conferring great official power Upon indi
viduals, does not always seenre friends;
tbat the force of deep personal obliga
tion Is often even converted Into an
Incentive to hostility and hate, and that the edi
tor strangely miscalculates wbo expects to escape
tbe malice of Its disappointed men and the Ingrati
tude of ' the creatures he has h el pel to ele
vate to placn and power. Tbe approval of
one's professional comrades is always gratifying,
and I sball forget disagreeable memories of the sad
past In tbe pleasing recollection of tbe kind words
which you and so many of my cetemporarles have
recently lavished upon me. These laudations, im
measurably greater than any service I bave rendered.
I accept as ample recompense for past labors
Nothing can stimulate my zsal for tbe party to
which I bave dedicated my life whose principles
are deeply ingrained Into every Doer and ligament ot
my nature, and upon wbosa suejesj hangs sucb
vital Interests. But these kind words will serve to nerve
my arm with strength in the great battle which is to
be decided in November next for the restoration of
tbe government to the landmarks blazed out by the
founders of the republic.
In August next the Democracy of Tennessee will.
In Its proposed State convention, nominate n stand'
ard bearer wbo, it Is hoped, will lead Its legions to
victory. I have carefully surveyed tbe field and bave
arrived at tbe conclusion that it la both to the Inter
est and the duty of tbe Tennessee Democracy to
nomlcate Governor Albert S. Marks for a second
term. He carried the Democratic banner to victory
two years ago, and be has done nothing to forfeit
tbe confidence of his party. His administration bas
been beset by many embarrassments, but he bas
met them bravely, and has performed his duties as
faithfully and 'successfully as any man could
bave done nnder similar circumstances. Governor
Marks Is therefore entitled to tbe Indorsement be
stowed upon his predecessors. All former governors
of Tennessee bave served two terms wben tbey de
sired It. After serving two years Governor William
H. Carroll told tbe people tbat be wanted an In
dorsement of his administration by a second term.
He found no one ready to blast his reputation by
driving him Into Ignominious obscurity. The peo
ple were Just, and stood by a faithful public servant
and re elected Governor Carroll to a Becond term.
James K. Folk after serving one term was made tbe
candidate of his party for another. James C. Jones
was elected governor In 1841, and wben be asked
the Indorsement of bis party It unanimously rallied
to bis support and made him its standard-bearer.
Governors Trousdale and Nell S. Brown were in
dorsad and made candidates for second terms, to
were Andrew Johnson, I; ham G. Harris, John C.
Brown and James D. Porter. Governor A. 8.
Marks was elected two years ago. and
It he desires sucb an Indorsement as
his predeceswrs have received, I cannot believe
that tbe Democracy ot Tennessee will place tbe ban
of disapprobation upon a soldier, patriot and states
man whose character is without stala or blemish. I
served two years as a soldier In General N. B. For
rest's command, by the skie of A. S. Maiks; was wl:h
him In tbe camp, tbe march, the battle, and bad
ample opportunities tor sounding the man In all his
higbt, his length, bis breadth and his deptb. and
learned to love him for the noble attributes of bis
generous heart, and to admire hts great abilities, his
genius, bis honesty, bis manhood and heroic patriot
ism. At Murfreesboro, tbe frosty earth was crlm
soned with the blood he shed In defense of tbe peo
ple of Tennessee, and If there be left a leg to tell
tbe story ot bis fidelity to tbe soil be was defending
from the tread of tbe Invader, be brought In triumph
from the field ot battle, made lustrous and lmperlsb
able by tbe splendor ot bis own valor, an unsullied
bonor and a devotion to tbe cause which never fal
tered. Tbe sympathies of tbe people should cluster
around such a man, and I cannot believe that the
high-hearted, true and Just Democracy of Tennessee
will sacrifice a neble and gifted son, who has en
countered tbe many embarrassments to which be
bas been subjected, with an bonest puroase, and wbo
has been true to the platform upon which be was
elected by hlspaity. I was taught. In the early
years ot my life, tbat gratitude was tbe boast of
tbs commonwealth, tbe heritage ot the faith
ful; tbat those who could bring with
them a lifetime of duties well performed, would al
ways Inspire the love and affections ot these they
bad served. But if Albert S. Marks should be struck
down in tbe house of his mends, it would indicate
that tbe times have changed; tbat there Is no Incent
ive for honest devotion to the public servlee.and that
all our loud professions of gratitude are nothing but
'sounding brass or a tinkling cjmbaL" Talk about
repudiation; but tbe saddest day in the history of our
commonwealth, made grand and glorious by tbe
achievements ot our statesmen and soldiers, would
be the day on which ths people repudiate their own
children, and makes them criminals without a
crime. The chief executive of a State, who con
scientiously discharges his duty, makes enemies,
and sometimes mistakes. Governor John C, Brown
and Governor James D. Porter were made the vic
tims ot calumny and traduced by enemies in their
own parly; they were charged with mistakes, acts ot
commission and omission. But tbe Just and gen-
erOBS Democracy ot Tenuessee threw Its protecting
egls over their reputations, and Indorsed them by
nominating and electing them to a seoond term.
The same Justice should be meted out to Governor
Albert S. Marks. But if tbe party, forgetful of Its
traditions, Is determined to scourge this
faithful public servant from office, there
Is eonsolauon In the reflection tbat It cannot rob
Governor Marks of his Incorruptible honesty and
tbe affections of a people be has so faithfully
served. The shining virtues of Arlsiides were not
dimmed by the despicable and fickle Ingrates wbo
banished hlui, and If Governor Marks Is to be ostra
cised by bis party, he, too, can appropriately ex
State of Tennesssee from the clutches of the party
which once ruled and ruined the south Is tbe par
amount duty of the Democratic party, and. unless
wise counsels prevail in the August convention, the
success ot the party w t J be placed in Jeopardy. At
tbe last Presidential election, the Democrats of Ten
nessee polled about one hundred and thirty-three,
thousand votes and the Republicans about eighty
nine thousand and five hundred votes. If there
should be two Democratic candidates In the field
for governor, and the vote be divided, each would re
ceive sixty six thousand five hundred votes, which
would elect the Republican high-tax candidate for
governor by a majority of over twenty-three thou
sand. Nor does the danger end here. Tbe next
canvass will be one of Intense bitterness. The ex
istence of the. Republican party depends upon the
result, it will fight with the desperation of de
spair; and, much as It prates about Its immaculate
purity on the State debt question, it will stultify It
self and vote with the bolting Democrats to defeat
the organized Democracy, and thus gain a party ad
vantage In the State. Such a combination would
place another Mahone In the United States senate
In the place of Hon. James X. Bailey, and Marsh T.
Polk, J. L. Games and Charles N. Glbbs would be
supplanted by tbe officials spawned Into existence
by an unholy alliance. The Republicans sneer at
the Idea of affiliating with bolting, low-tax Demo
crats, bnt so tbey did In Virginia, and afterward
Joined the readjusting Democrats and formed a
combination wblcb, in Its malice and vlndlctlveness,
swept out the old officials and elected In their places
Radicals and repudlators. Human nature Is the
same everywhere, and what occurred In Virginia
may be repeated in Tennessee. To prevent such a
calamity the State convention, which convenes In
August, should strive to conciliate and recon
cile tbe factions which divide the
Democratlo party. In view of the : late
vote of the people of Tennessee on the proposed
settlement of the State debt, no good will result to J
ins jM-weraaa pany, tlx- -ia tt i wiita rtrtae
bondholders by forcing this question Into the next
canvass. If tbe bondholders are wise tbey will not
permit It to be made an Issue In a Presidential elec
tion, wben national politics will overshadow every
thing else and prevent a correct expression of pubiio
opinion on questions of State policy. If made an
issue separate and apart from an exciting political
contest a candid and bonest expression of the peo
ple could be elicited. Tbe Republicans look upon
repudiation as an abomination, but hating still more
tbe Democratic party, in times of high excitement
tbey will stultify themselves as tbey did In Virginia,
and east their votes more with a view of dividing
and distracting tbe Democratic party than to main
tain tbe credit ot the State. Elect good men to the
legislature next November and I believe tbey can
make a compromise with the creditors ot the State
which will be ratified by the people In a separate
election In 1861, when every man can vote
bis honest convictions uninfluenced by tbe
party passions which are always engendered
by a heated canvass for ths Presidency.
The prospects ot the Pennsylvania Democracy were
recently clouded by local dissensions, which threat
ened disaster In tbe national and State canvass.
But In the State convention a tew days since all dif
ficulties were reconciled, and the party is now united
and sanguine of victory. Profiting by this example,
tbe Democrats of Virginia, divided like those of
Tennessee on the State debt question, are laboring
to brlDg about a reunion, and from all parts of the
grand old commonwealth comes the cheering news
tbat tbe breach In the party Is being rapidly filled up.
Both factions agree la the opinion that tbe debt
question should not obtrude Itself Into tbe national
canvass, and the Virginia Democracy will go Into the
contest ignoring local Issues and united In a patri
otic effort to annihilate the Republican party, which
is fighting Its last great battle for life and the power
it has so shamefully abused. Let the example set
by Penrsyivanla and Virginia be adopted by the
Democracy ot Tennessee. The war -
and recrimination shou''' ' , "lnatlon
ot concUlo" ' siPPlanted by a spirit
nd Bod ftetlhg. Let the watch
word ot the Tennessee Democracy be, from now un
til tbe second of November, "Close up the ranks."

with no object In view beyond the success of the
grand old party, whose fortunes are Immeasurably
dearer to me than thise of any living Individual.
Trusting that the Tennessee Democracy will bury
Its teuds, and unite In the coming contest, fraught
as it Is with grave results to the life ot the nation,
and again thanking you'; my dear Dr. Birry, for

West Point, May 15. James E. Payne,
the expert, was recalled, and testified to a
striking sameness in one set ot papers re
ceived by him. His testimony was, in the
main, corroborated by other experts. The
court-room was filled with people, it being
stated that Cadet Whittaker would undergo
a severe examination.
Cadet Whittaker was called on and in re
ply to questions stated that he had heard be
fore he came to the academy of the way in
which colored cadets were treated. The
prospect was not encouraging, but he had in
some respects been treated better than he
- A copy of Lieutenant Flipper's book on
hcvolored cadet was shown Whittaker. The
'tookAcotttaisnd an extract .from, a lettv from J
Whittaker, in which he spoke ot his treat
ment as " bully." Whittaker said the ex
tract was a correct one, and it was a true
statement of his sentiments at the time it
was written. He thought from accounts that
some colored cadets had been treated worse
than he had.
Question Has there been anything in your
or their treatment that would lead a sensible
man to mutilate or mike himself sick? An
swer No, not if he were a man. Whittaker
said when wrongs done him were reported
to the authorities they had been redressed;
he had no clue to the perpetrators of the out
rage; he had some suspicions of Cadets
Blake and M 'Donald; he suspected Blake
on account of the manner in which Blake
treated him a few days before the outrage; he
put on Blake's cap by mistake one day, and
Blake was very angry about it; he also sus
pected Blake because of the Bcornful manner
iniwbich Blake moved out of the way one
day when he (Whittaker) was leaving the
Qies. Do you thick this scorn was suffi
cient to lead a man to mutilate another, and
run the risk of being diemissed from the
army ot the United States, and being con
fined in the penitentiary. Ans. I know a
sensible man would not do it, but I know
some men could be so debased and so biased
that they cnld be led to such an act. He
did sot entertain these suspicions at the time
of his previous examination. They were an
afterthought. Ha had those suspicions for
some time. Ho suspected M'JOEald Torn a
fuss ke had with him when they were plebs.
Hs Lad knowledge of this fuss before tbe
iavt Ligation began, but since his -c71ng
testimony he had t;-gnt the matter all
oyer, 10c lCg jg treatment by various
miet and he had now reached the conclu
sion jiist given. He had seen tome evidences
of aversion toward him by several other
cadets, but not like that of Blake. He did
not remember that be told Lieutenant Knight
of his suBDielon?,
Qaes. If yoa have not told him do you
think you have done your duty to him as
yoar counsel and yourself? Ans. I think I
have if I did not think of it when talking
with him. If he had not told Lieutenant
EoigLt, perhaps his suspicions tfere not
strong enough.
The recorder showed Whittaker a letter
and asked: "Is that your writing?"
Whittaker said he couldn't tell till he read
the letter, ind he reached out lor it.
The recorder would not let him take it.
Recorder fou see this letter; is tbat your
Whittaker refused to say whether the writ
ing was his or not till he had examined the
letter more closely, and he reached for it
again and again. The recorder withdrew it,
when Lieutenant Knight stepped up and
took the letter from the recorder's chair, and,
turning about, handed it to Whittaker, who
read it over carefuliy. This took considera.
ble time, the letter covering many paifes.
Recorder Sears seemed nettled, and bis course
caused considerable criticism by the specta
tors. He must have overheard some ot tbe
tmarU f.ir. nil he auftin tooit his chair, he
said : "I ask if anyone not connected with the
court make any remarks that tbey be required
to teave t&e. room. 1 bave not made Buy 00
lections before, but I now make this n quest.'
President Mordecai IE any one muk's
any remarks they will be required to leave
the room."
The letter was finally read aloud by Whit
taker. Ia it the Cadet said he felt himself
utterly forlorn and friendless. Ha could
hardlv have dreamed tbat soma day the ca-
diits would have done him an injury. He re
ferred ta the outrage as "barbarous." and
said as he thought of it aiger even boiled
within his breaxt. He stated the circum
stances of the attack iu detail; saying his in
juries might be "sbpeifieial," es they had
been termed, yet they would remain with
him. ' It was not the slight scratches he had
received, but the outraee itself be cared
about. He EroKe of it as an act si fiendibh
and cowardiv tbat even the savages would
hide their heads with shame at tbe thought
of it. He said it cast a beautiful reputation
on one of the highest schools of the country.
and he felt that the day of retribution must
come to his coweri'.y persecutors, and t-x-
nreased bis faith in heaven.
His readintr of the letter was intensely
dramatic, suitirg his voice and manner to the
written sentences. Tbe letter wat written to
a colored man named Weston, in New York
city. Io one portion of tbe letter wa9 a sen
tence as follows : "A-jd yet this is what I
have suffered at one of your schools boasting
of honor," etc.
Rjcorder Sears asked him how he recon
ciled the statements in the letter with the
testimony he had recently given. 1
Whittaker replied 1 Those were the utter
ances of my heart, and I hey were my feel
ings when 1 wrote, and cling to tbem to-day,
sir, just s tenaciously as when they weie
written. "
The recorder asked him if the marks on his
ears remain, and he replied in the affirmative
and turned bit head so the court cculd see his
ears. There are yet slight scratches ou them.

on his former evidence and his first state

questioned closrly as to his knowledge ol the

two frames of glass so as to exhibit my discovery to
any one who may properly examine. Mo. 1 Is tbe
questioned note, placed In Juxtaposition wltb part
of sheet from set "A" In two places. We first no
tice eut of paper on top, as arranged and cut at the
paper mills. Neit tbe rulings, and then the ragged
edges in juxtaposition where It was separated, per
haps with a paper-cutter. No matter with what, so
long as tbe Indented spot on one edge bas Its
corresponding top opposite. 80 ot No. 2. which Is
out of set No. I, and marked as above described,
and plaeed as I have described heretofore No. 1.
This testimony created a sensation, which
was greatly increased when it was announced
that the piece of paper on which the anony
mous note was written was torn from the
sheet on which Whittaker had started to
write a letter to his mother, which an ex
pert had taken from set one and marked
"A," in two places. Every one of the ex
perts, five in all, identified the writing of
Whittaker as the handwriting in the note of
warning, three ot them being positive.
Whittaker was not questioned alter
above conclusions were announced, and
the court then adj inrned tall Monday.

The committee on bock concern reported,
recommending tbe postponement of further
election of editors fdr the present, and the
report was adopted. They also reported io
favor of the discontinuance of the publication
of the National Repository and Golden Hours.
This was laid ou the table to enable Dr.
Curry to present a plea for the Repository.
The committee also recommended that the
deficiency of one hundred and twenty thou
sand dollars in the episcopal fund be charged
to profit and loss by the book concern.
Adopted. ,
Tbe committee on the entertainment of
the next general coaferenee reported a plan
for dividing tbe expenses among all the
churches, instead of burdening those where
the conference meets. The plan is to appoint
a commission ef nine, who shall make aa ea
rn ate of the entire cost, boarding delegates
at hotels or other places, and all other ex
penses of the conference, and make an ap
portionment of the fond to the various con
ferences, the amount to be raised yearly, in
the first three years of thd qaadreoninm,
and the deficiency, if any, to be raised in the
fourth year. This was made the special
order for Monday, '
A long discussion took nlace over tha
choice of place for the Hrdintltion of bishops.

bettefixia'ered than on the previous nights,
the gentlemen ad htdies in the CaBts having
become more at ease and self-possessed at
each appearance. Thoso who appeared on
the stage at the matinee performance were
Misses Jennie Jones, L-zzie M'Clelland, Jen
nie Camo snd Margneritte Apperton, and
Messrs. W. J. Steele, George L. Castner and
Bell W. Ktheridge. The different perfor
mances were well managed by Mr. James
Kirkland, well conducted by Mr. Emile Levy,
and well directed by Mr. George Handwer
ker. The want of a Btrong chorus was per
ceptible, and its absence cannot be too much
deplored, because it would have added no lit

pleasing operettas.
