THE CONVENTIONS TlIK St. Iuin (llobe-Hemoeml iHlhlixlies a list of "the defalcations in Federal offices during thirty years of Democratic rule." "Unfortunately," the New York H'orW re marks "the period selected aud the limited scope of the article do not permit the inclu sion of the name of a proprietor of the St. ouis (ilnhr-Democrat who served out his time for stealing a barrclfull of 'crooked whisky' money from the government." A nothkr sensation spoiled. The Galena Viawttr. denies, by authority of General Grant, the statement published in a recent issue of the Hartford Time, to the effect that the general, during his second term of office as President, had been presented by a Japanese prince with diamonds to the value of $10,000, that they had never been given to him, but bad been stolen by one of bis private secre taries, who had sold tbent to a Washington city pawnbroker for $o000. A -I'D hi. to the (,'incinnati Enquirer from Washington says that it is in the air there that Hancock is going to be triumphantly elected, and it doesn't have to be snuffed like the war-horses of Job, from afar. Ex-Senator Doraey concedes Indiana, and so doe Gov ernor Smith, of New Mexico, acting secretary of the lirpublican National committee. Con gressman Carlisle, of Kentucky, says that he is satisfied that Indiana will certainly go I emocritic, and that it is now only a ques tion of majority. Senator Voorhees writes that Indiana i sure to go Democratic; that the Democrats are full of confidence and working hard; also, that the Republicans have become uneasy about Ohio, and arecon- --titrating their forces in that State. "God is gotsl to bu own." The triumph of the Ifc?niocratic party in Novemler is Assured. Wb publish in another column a letter from a gentleman who declares in a letter to the New York Sun that he was a witness of the wonderful cures effected at Knock, Ire land, since the apparition of the Virgin Mary was first seen by the school children of the parish. He tells some wonderful stories, and he is fully sustained by dozens of reputable and sensible people, who attest, in the strong est manner, to having seen various wonder fill vi'ir.r.n, much of the same description as those said to have been seen at Knock, six teen miles distant. Thousands throng the chapel and grounds night and day. and the greatest excitement prevails. The priest can scarcely control the rush, and it i hardly possible to enter the chapel. Can these thing be, or is it that a whole community has gone daft and are able to inoculate every new comer with their vngary? To Nominate Leglnlaiort Held Yesterday at the Kxposit ion Building - The De mocracy of Khelby, Fayette and Tipton, United and Harmo iilona, Nominate a Ticket That Cannot Fail To be Triumphantly Elected on the Sec ond of November Next Wilson and Wright Democrat" Bary Their Differences of View and Stand Solidly for the Integrity of the Party. It is true, a the Chattanooga Timet save, that the fact is, when wc plead that the legis latures which passed the various acts under which bonds were issued were uot represent ing "the people," we plead "the baby act" in a most dugmceful fnrhion; and equally dis reputable is the whine that the three differ ent legislatures which authorized the rail road companies to settle in any State issues were operated on by bribery. A people wbo thus decry .the bodies they intrust with legis lation either unconsciously slander them selves or they nre morally bad. The stream rises no higher than its source. We must rise above, rise superior to this self degradation, and put on the whole armor of men wbo know and are not afraid to meet their responsibilities. We must accept the eon, promise offered by the bondholders, and settle the State debt question forever. Tire Washington Capital criticises Red field's book of homicidal comparisons between the north and south severely. 'It says: "He shows and states the ratio of homicides in the south is much larger than in the north aud cast. The homicides to which he con lines his studies, however, are physical man shooting or stabbing man. He does not go into investigating the noted aud notorious 1 frequency of abortion in the north, nor of labor starving and being starved to death, nur of the numbers annually poisoned and diseased to death in the horrid rooks and tenement houses owned by the rich of the larger cities. All of these are homicides, and much meaner and more abominable to Rociety than the mere catch as catch can for life or death, pistol or knife in band. In ad dition, Hcdtield is grossly inaccurate in bis statistics of actual northern murders, skip ping them and omitting them, as if they amciinted to nothing." At 11 a.m. yesterday the county Demo cratic convention was held for the purpose of nominating candidates for the State senate and the lower bouse of thegeneral assembly. The stage had been decorated with Hancock and English flags, and the ball was parti tioned ofTsome 100 feet back from the stage. Within this inclosure sat the delegates. Long before the convention was called to order several hundred citizens were in the building. A vast amonnt of electioneering progressed. The country delegates held a caucus in the gallery up stairs to arrange a plan of campaign and vote as a unit if pos sible. The delegates numbered 178, of whom 72 represented the country districts and 102 the city wards. CAUED TO ORBER. At 11:30 o'clock the convention was called to order by Colonel J. M. Coleman, chair man of the county Democratic executive committee. The delegates took their seats, and when qmet was restored t olonel Cole man stated that they were called together to nominate candidates for the legislature. The first order of business was the selection of a temporary chairman. TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN. Mr. P. M. Winters nominated Henry J. Lynn. Mr. James Harris nominated Judge H. T. Ellett. On motion of P. M. Winters the rote was taken by wards and districts, and resulted as follows: Henry J. Lynn, 74; Henrv T. Ellett, 99. Total vote cast, 173. Jfixre WUSi'ft SPEECH. Judge Ellett was announced duly elected chairman, and was escorted to the stand by Colonel Josiah Patterson. He was received with applause. He thanked the convention for the unexpected honor conferred upon him. It was a gratifying compliment. They were assembled hereto perform an important duty. The question to be settled was whether the Democratic party will maintan its as cendency or powerturned over to Republican rule. We have seen too much of it in this and other States, and it is an evil wherever it ex ists. There is a division in the Democratic party, and the way to treat it is by a spirit of concession and conciliation. Applause. It was on easy matter for this convention to agree upon a ticket without troubling itself about platforms or resolutions. Applause. We may differ, but we are all honest and are friends. Private views must be suhornated to public good. There must be mutual con cessions and compromise in order to accom plish the great object that we all have in view, Applause. If these sentiments actuate the convention there was no doubt in his mind but that victory would crown their efforts. Shelby county elects abont one-tenth of the whole legislature, hence the best men should be selected by this convention. With these remarks he again thanked the conven tion for the honor conferred upon him and declared the convention ready for business. TEMPORARY SECRETARY. On motion of Mr. Henry J. Lynn, Mr. James ANewsom was unanimously elected temporary secretary. ORDER OF Bl'RIKEf. On motion the order of business an recom mended bv the executive committee was adopted by the convention. l'KKSENTED WITH BADGES. At the request of the chairman the dele gates came forward and obtained badges. ITtUMS DELEGATIONS. A motion was made that where a delegate was absent that the delegates present repre senting that ward or district fill the vacancy. This motion was referred to the committee on credentials. ON CREDENTIALS. On motion, a committee on credentials, consisting of three from the city and two from the country, was ordered appointed. ON PERMANENT ORGANIZATION. Mr. Stratum offered a motion that a com mittee of five from the city and three from the country lie appointed on permanent or ganization. PERMANENT OFFICERS. Colonel M. Magevney offered and put a resolution as an. amendment that the present officers be selected as permanent officers of the convention. The motion was carried unani mously. AN EMBARRASSING POSITION. Chairman Ellett said that he hoped Col onel Magevney would withdraw his motion, as it embarrassed the chair. published in the Appeal, thereby rendering a republication unnecessary. ( OMM ITTt.K ON KfXll r n.,.-. Amotion was made that a wimmittce on resolutions be appointed. The chair an nounced the committee as follows (four from the city and three- from the country ; Henry J. Lynn, George ( .ami, Luke E. Wright, R. F. Looney, Janie, Brett, li. F. Bledsoe and R. D. Goodwin. NO IHBCrSHION. A motion was adopted that all resolutions offered be sent to the committee on resolu tions without debate. COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE. Mr. D. Scales moved that a committee of conference of five be appointed to meet the delegations from Fayette and Tipton coun ties and select floterial senator and repre sentatives. The motion was adopted, and the chair announced the following commit tee: I). M. Scales, W. H. Rhea, M. Magev ney, C. W. Graves and E. L. McGowan. I1ECESH TAKEN. Colonel DuBose moved that the conven tion take a recess for half an hour to allow the committee on resolutions time to report. Mr. I. H. Douglass moved as an amend ment that the recess be fifteen minutes. The motion was lost. The DuBose motion was then taken up, and a recess for thirtv minutes was taken. Mr. TmiMAf HiGiiEn, member of the British parliament aud iounder of the Rugby colony iu Middle Tennessee, on the occasion 1 of Ids reception at KnoXville expressed both his gratification and surprise, as he expected to find our people "intolerant." Mr. Hughes, as the St. Louis Republican remarks, evidently formed bis opinions of the southern people from the falsehoods told about them in the northern Republican press. This press has pictured the south as a region of barbarism, whose inhabitants are coarse, rude, illiterate, revengeful, blood-thijsty, hostile to new comer. Inimical to civilization and intoler ant of opinions that do not accord with their own. This malicious misrepresentation is put forth for partisan purposes; it is intended only for this country. Its object is to inflame the northern people against their country men and frighten them into giving a new lease" of power to a party whose rule has grown wearisome. But it goes abroad as a true picture of southern society, and gives to foreigners the mistaken notions and false views that Mr. Hughes acknowledged at Knoxville. The Republican campaign fund is gath ered from every source possible from the scrubbing women of the public build ings in Washington, from the laborers in the postofficea, from the day laborers in the docks, from the poorly pid clerks of the departments, and from the thieves, forgers and other criminals in the penitentiaries. Testimony pr e, in: the truth of the latter statement is published by the Chicago .Vnm, from which we learn that it has lately trans pired that Chairman Jewell, of the Republi can side of the political machine, has been raising money in the workshops of the New York State prisons. In one of these institu tions is a convict named A. i. L. Haigh, of New York city, serving out a sentence for forgery. In the stove-shop of the prison Mr. Norman Burdick is foreman. He is presi dent of a Garfield and Arthur club, to which Mr. Jewell applied for funds. He told Haigh that if be would raise $500 for Mr. Jewell he would see that he was taken from the ex hausting work of the foundry and given a place iu the library, under the chaplain, where the labor was nothing. Haigh 's friends in New York promised hi in the money, but Haigh let out the story that prison discip line was used as a means of screwing money out of convict, and Burdick was compelled U return the money, much to Chairman Jewell's chagrin. Who knows but that $500, rightly spent, might have saved Maine to the party '! LET IT BE INDORSED. Henry J. Lynn said he was the only oppo nent to the chairman for the office of tempo rary chairman, and he asked Mr. Stratum to withdraw his motion, and be moved that Colonel Magevney 's motion be adopted. Applause. COMMITTEE ON CREDENTIALS. J he chair announced the committee on credentials, as follows: K. J. Wendel, J. M. Murray, John Leslie, C. W. Frayser, B. B. Barnes. qCESTION OF MODESTY. Colonel M. Magevney said if the modestv of the chairman impelled him to accept the position ot permanent chairman, he would put the motion again, and let the vote be taken from the stand. question of labor. Chairman Ellett answered: It is not the modestv of the chair that objects, but the disinclination to undergo the labor incident to the position. COMMITTEE ON CREDENTIALS REPORT. The committee on credentials retired, and on returning, presented a report as to dele gates entitled to seats. The report was read by the secretary. The report was received and adopted. DISTRICT DELEGATES. First District. Henry Thomas, w. B. Gllsson, J. A. Miiithv, J.C Castles, U. U. Chamtwrlaln. flerosd District. It. F. Davidson, K G. Nelson, K. A. Hatnlll Joe Dwyer.

THE REPORT PRESENTED. Mr. Henry J. Lynn, chairman of the com mittee on resolutions, presented the report as follows: He said he was requested by the committee to report that they had considered the matter of resolutions and had concluded not to adopt any platform or resolutions, but it the convention desired it the resolutions would be presented. MOTION TO ADOPT THE REPORT. Captain McFaNand moved that the report be received and the committee discharged. MOTION. TO LAY ON THE TABLE. Mr. C. W. Heiakell moved to lay the Mc Farland motion on the table. A STATEMENT. Mr. Lynn said that the committee on reso lutions decided to present resolutions if called for. NO DECISION. The Heiskell motion was put to the con vention, but it was unable to decide whether or not the motion was carried or lost. A LOST MOTION. The motion to lay the McFarland motion on the table was again put and lost. DIVISION CALLED FOR. The motion of Mr. McFnrland was then called, up to adopt the report of the com mittee on resolutions. It was put anil an nounced carried, but a division was called for by wards and districts bv Mr. C. W. Heis kell. ANOTHER STATEMENT. The chairman stated that he was informed by the chairman of the committee on resolu tions, that if any one called for the resolu tions they would be read. RESOLUTIONS CALLED FOR. General Luke E. Wright said: In order to satisfy everybody, I now move that the resolutions lie read. The motion was adopted. WHO WILL READ THEM? Mr. Henry J. Lynn said that the resolu tions were in the handwriting of Colonel Gantt, and he called upon that gentleman to read them. AN EXPLANATION. Colonel Gantt appeared on the stand and said that th resolutions were uot the views of any one member of the committee, but were the result o a conference and exchange of views. THE RESOLUTIONS. Vhcreas, This convention views with alarm and profound regret the serious division of the Democratic party ot the State upon the vexed ques tion ol the state debt. This division makes the election of a Republican governor and legislature more than a probability. Such a result iuans the loss of a senator iu congress at a time when parties iu that body are so nearly balanced as to threaten long Demoemtic control. It means a return to those methods in the State administration by which nearly $1,000,000 were annu ally expended, instead of the economical rule of the Democracy, by which these expenditures were reduce. 1 to little more than one-fourth of that sum. It makes the loss of one or more representatives in congress possible at a time when such a loss might ' place the Republican party in the ascendency in the national house of representatives. Whereas, further, In the view of this convention, the way to a settlement of the State debt is not to be found iu denouncing the low-tax w iugof the party as dishon est and repu-llators, or in chargiug ttie State-credit wing with a corrupt alliance with bondholders and railroad corporations. The facts do not Justify such crimination and recrimination. Both w ings of the party, with scarcely a dissenting voice, favor a settlement of the liabilities of the State upon such terms as will preserve the credit and good name of the State, but which, at the same time, will not oppress the taxpayers by absorb ing iu taxes their whole earnings, and which will exclude from payment all fraudulent ami unjust demands, and give the people the ben efit of all equitable circumstances whfch ought to enter into the settlement, and re-luce the ainouut of the burdeu. But honest differences of opinion exist among them as to the extent of debt for which the State is liable, and the time and method of settlement. A solution of these differences is to be found not in passion and biiteruess, but in reasoning togetheV in a spirit of candor and lorncHnince, vnereas, lurtner, As the success ot the party is highly desirable, and hs thsteomes not from crimination and division, but from forbear anee and union, it is our important duty to And, If possible, some ground upon which, by mutual concessions, all can stand together. The low-tax alemeut of the party insist that no settlement made by the legislature shall be final, without Its reference to the people for approval or rejection. While the State credit element objects to such reference, chiefly on the ground that a reference of a legislative enactment embodying a settlement to the popular vote would be In conflict with our representative system of government and void. But all agree that a settle ment effected by a constitutional amendment would require the popular vote, and be In har mony with our system of government, and be sides commends Itself as the better method be cause It would make a finality of this exciting question In local politics. This, therefore, is com mon ground free from the chief objection of one element, and at the same time secures, the essen tial point insisted on by the other. It is not onlv ground for harmony as to our local ticket, but. It Is suomitteei, ninushes a twisis upon mectfully itch harmony n-s wh effected throughout the Stale mav be giving the party but a single candidate ttie State mav for governor and assuring .success.

That we respectfully urge harmony among or r brethren In other counties of the state, and earnestly appeal to the executive committee of both wings of the party not to abandon hope of a reconciliation and united action.

Jicsoimt, That we heartily approve the platform of the National IK'mocracy, and will give earnest support to its distinguished and patriotic nomi nees. MOTION IN LIEU. Mr. P. M. Winters moved that the reso lutions be adopted by the convention in lieu of the report of the committee. RANTED TO KNOW. Mr. B. C. Bledsoe wanted to know if it was in the resolutions that no settlement of the State debt should be made by the legislature without the assent of the ieople in constitu tional convention? The chairman announced that it was in the resolutions, and the resolution was read. THAT FLKEBRAND. General Luke E. Wright said it was now clear that the rcort of the committee de clining to make a report of resolutions was wise the committee believing that resolu tions would be a firebraud in the convention. LET IT BE RECORDED. Mr. B. C. Bledsoe wanted it expressly stated that the legislature .should have no power to settle the Slate debt. ALL KEITD1ATOR.S. Colonel George K. I'helan said the only question was between the high-tax aud low tax elements. They are all repudialors. If the resolutions are ndopted Shelbv conntv will put herself tie horn the record outside of the issue, and will be in a gang to herself in the legislature calling for a constitutional convention, with the other counties against the proposition. There is war to the Knife between the high and low-tax parties, and they are all repudiators. When the high-tax men call the low-tax men repudiators, it is the pet calling the kettle black. Let ns go before the people, and God defend the right. Applause. A CRT FOR PEACE. Captain McFarland stated that the com mittee recognized the fact that the party in Shelby county was fast drifting on the rocks ami going to destruction. You have heard the ory of "war to the knife," bnt there are a I large numlar of people who cry peace. Applause. J lliccryoi war means aisv sension and defeat of the Democracy of Shelby county. lieprcsenting the ieace party," he moved to adopt the report of the committee and thus take the firebrand out ol" their midst. Should they do this, success will crown their efforts. RESOLUTIONS EQUIVOCAL. Mr. W. B, Glisson desired harmony, and said if the resolutions were not adopted and pledging the nominees of the convention to rote for no settlement of the State debt un less the question is submitted to the people, no nominee of the convention will be elected; the resolutions were equivocal, and avoided the' issue; a large number of the people of the county will not support any proposition that does not make the issue squarely. HARMONY DESIRED. Mr. James Phelan replied that peace and harmony were necessary, and he believed in calling a constitutional convention. He be lieved in a compromise; a fair and square aereement without anv iueeling. He spoke for the young men whom be represented and who looked forward to the future for har mony and settlement of the issues before the people. WILL SUPPORT THE NOMINEES. Mr. Bledsoe said if the convention desires to adopt the report of the committee against presenting a platform, he would agree to it and would support the nominees of the con vention. He was for peace and harmony. Applause. MOTION BEFORE THE CONVENTION. The chairman announced that the motion of Mr. P. M. Winters to adopt the resolutions was before the convention. SUBMIT IT TO THE PEOPLE. Mr. Winter advocated the adoption of the resolutions. He thought he discovered that the influence of the railroads had crept into the convention. Laughter and applause. He favored snbmiting the question of the State debt to the people? Is this convention afraid of the people? Tf the nominees of this convention do not pledge themselves to vote for submitting this question to the people, he believed every one of them would be de feated. LAID ON THE TABLE. The convention called for the "question." Mr. John B. Robinson moved that Mr. Winters's motion to adopt the resolutions be laid on the table. Carried. COMMITTEE REPORT ADOPTED. The question then came upon the report of the committee on resolutions not to present any resolutions or platform to the conven tion. The question was put and carried by a large majority, and amid loud cheers. WHAT NEXT IN ORDER?
