"Well, now, I want it distinctly under

Very reassuring,

news from Virginia is not
1 eace now reigns Bli
the signs are not favorable
for its continuance nor for an election
free from not and bloodshed. Jx.-t us
lioe tho good sense of the white
and negro leaders, and the legal
power of the State will be exerted to pre
(serve the peace in every part of it. A
conflict of races in any of the Southern
Mates just now wmtld be a god-F nd to
the Republican ) urty, now tottering to its
full. It would be taken advantage of to
re-excite the sectional animosity of the
North, and be used to revitalize, the fail
ing energies of the opponents of Democ
racy. We iiinl have peace, and above all
peace between the races.
The elections to-day in Mississippi, Vir
ginia, Maryland, New Vork, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Connect'
icut, will monopolize in those States
much, if not all, of the public attention,
In Virginia this will especially be the case,
as from present, appearances it threatens
to become a veritable battleground be
tween the races, ho excited have the ne
groes become under the teaching of Ma
hone and his co-laborers. The vote in
New York will also be eagerly looked for,
and everybody will want to know at night
if the redoubtable Ken Cutler has beaten
the aristocrats of Massachusetts again,
Taken altogether this will lie for politicians
only n less exciting day than that to come
next year, when a President to succeed
Arthur is to be elected.
The changes recently made in that part
if the city so lung known as Fort Picker
ing have been very great. The advent of
Ihe Texas and the Kansas City railroads
lias induced the removal thither of several
manufacturing enterprises, and the result
is nn unwonted activity in building and
railway construction. The Milburn Iron
Works, now being built, will be Ihe largest
concern of the kind south of Pittsburg
They w ill comprise an immense foundry,
machine nnd pattern shops, finishing and
iiaintimr shoos, and a little way from
there twenty-live cottages of the most
modem plan an. I construction for the
workingnieii and their families. Gas,
water and sewers are to be supplied, and
the Millmrns mean to make theirs a
niojel establishment, in which the
workii.'-'inaii is to find at their hands
iiit.'llii'vni consideration. Near their
works, tlm stove factory long con
lemplated by Mr. Welter will shortly
lie nut no. the ground being now
nut ill nreimratioii for it, ami we under-
i i
stand that a pjiper-mill is in miitempla
tioii in the same neighborhood. These
are among the most prominent indexes of
tirogress in Memphis just now, and tl
Appkm. readers will agree with us that
they are most encouraging.
Thk Kiiipcn.r of Russia has organized a
commission to prepare a constitution will
a view to the recognition of some, ut least
of the rights of the people of the great em
pire. This he has done in spite of the op
position of the nobility, which in view of
their determinoJ effort against the eman
cipation of the seris during his father's
reign, he knows, he can overcome. The
Czar doubtless fee's that he cannot any
longer war against the spirit of tho n'e.
Since the serfs were made free a genera
tion of well-educated, middle class men
and women have come upon the slago of
life hi Russia, and they are making them
selves fell as a great force which, w hile it
docs not actively supplement the Nihilistic
propagandists, eagerly avail itself of
all that can be gained by the work
of tliiHti radical extremist. This
middle class embraces the merchants,
inanuUi'tiirers, miners, mechanics, hank
ers and ;ielive capitalists, men of
JCuropean blood, intelligence and ad
dress, who cannot be kept down to be
played with us mere puppets. They form
the class of which the nobility sluudd in
dread, because they are intelligent nnd
ure growing powerful by wealth acnuired
by labor nnd industry. A similar class in
r.ngland have ell'ected all the reforms of
the pant fifty years, and it is well under
Rtood that on the shoulders of the fcour
gruinis of Prance, the present republic rests.
In taking this step toward constitutional
government Alexander iuvitcs the sup
port of the best class of his subjects, and
that one to w hich he can confidently look
for a conservative administration of affairs.
They will take whatever conies to them of
Teforni, no doubt, w ith gladness, and avail
themselves of it as a htepping-shme to
HoinetUil!g better. The liberty they ought
to have cau I-e won in this way gradually,
nnd w ithout disturbing the economies of
the empire or tlm eduestL'.mal progress of
the masses.
As a result of the agitation of the water1
question, the City Council lias invited the
presence of the leading citizens next Fri
day at the courthouse to consider with its
members the water supply, which by some
. is declared to be inadequate, nnd by most
people to be below the standard of clear
ness mid purity. In view of all that has
been said pro and con. bv the president of
the Water Company on the one hand, and
the people, represented by leading property-owners
and merchants, on the oilier,
it is to be hoped the attendance at this
meeting will be large, bo that some definito
and desirable conclusion may be reached.
The three offers made by President La
tham, of the Water Company, will of
course lie considered, though he can
not exieet that the conclusions by
any body of citizens as to the
needs nnd wishes of the whole
Isxly of the jieople in the mutter of ptirs
water w ill have the effect of inducing the
withdrawal of the suits now pending
against the Water Company. Prom what
we can learn those suits ure not likely to
be withdrawn, if at all, unless some, if not
all, the grievances enumerated in the bill
tiled in the courts are redressed. The
complainants, like the people they pro
pose to represent, will not lie satisfied
w ith mere promises. Of these they have
had many any time the pat threo years.
They want performance. They want to
see something done toward giving the
people Mississippi water filtered of all
coloriug matter, and pure and in good sup
ply. If the company cannot do this as at
present organized, it ought to be
(strengthened with the needed in
crease of capital. Better than
this would lie for the Tuxiii-lititrict to
purchase and run the waterworks, and
run them free for the peoplelevylim a
general tax every year to keep them up.
Water ought to !c free ns air to the jeo
ple. Pike pure air ti it a prime necessity
of life. But a tho city cannot buy just
now, the next best thine to do U to force
the company up to the point of atisfytn
the public demand as to supply, quality
and price. And this should be, as it can
be, done free from all cli'iues, rings or
combination or personal purposes or
views. The people and their neads in the
one thing to oe considered in this matter,
jft, lat and all tUe time. -

Washington, November 5. It is stated
on good authority that Mahone sent a
telegraphic letter here yesterday calling on
President Arthur for Federal troops,
stating that they were necessary to pre
serve the peace at -Danville, Va. George
C. Gorham waited on the President
in behalf of Mahone, and asked that his
request be complied with. It is said the
President stated that he could not see the
necessity of sending Federal troops, inns
much as the State militia seemed able to
preserve the peace. It is feared that sail'

morrow and next dav.
Special advices received to-night from
various portions of Virginia show that the
excitement throughout the State is intense.
There is serious apprehension that trouble
may occur at Tuesday's election, though
good citizens are doing all they can
to preserve the peace. The military
from Richmond and other points are gath
ered at Danville. To-night at 11 o clock

Daxvii.i.e, Va., November 3. Besides
the five negroes reported killed Saturday
night, it is said that two others have since
lied. The names of only four were ol-
tained, and these are probably nil, as fol

vants at the Arlington Hotel; Jere Smith
and Peter Walters. The colored people
on the streets appear to know nothing.
The bodies of those found on the streets
were handed over to their friends and ta
ken away. Charles Adams, Edward Bap

wounded. Walter Holland, shot in the
bead, is the son of C. G. Holland, chair
man of the Democratic Congressional
Campaign Committee, and rested well.
Hopes are entertained of his recovery. J.
K. Seward, shot in the abdomen, will
recover. Richard Valentine was shot in
the hand accidentally. At ; o'clock Sun-

After the delivery of the mails yester

proclaimed that no assemblies on the
streets would be allowed, and requested
the people to 150 home and remain quiet.
The Hon. Mr. Cabell and Judge Allen

New York, November 5. A special to

tries from The local militia continue to
gnard tUe-ftroet and citizens and special
ollieers armed Jfrith nhotguns jMrtrbl the
town. The fatigue of guard duty is ex
hausting. Many citizens have been so
engaged since Saturday. The town is
quiet, but the latent feeling is intense. A
number of persons were on the streets
this morning, white ana colored, but very
few Indies. Business is almost entirely
stopped. The mavor this morning issued
a proclamation announcing the appoint
ment ol special constabulary in eaen
ward, aided by the Danville Grays, called
into military service. The negroes seem
quiet and undemonstrative. The Rich
mond resolutions adopted at the inass-
meeting of citizens yesterday, setting forth
that the conflict here between the races
was the resnlt of a conspiracy on the twrt
of the leaders of the coalition movement
to force the race issue upon the whites,
was bulletined this morning, and has an en
couraging effect.

New York, November 5. A special to

burg, vtiich almost brought about serious
trouble. (..'apt. Morris Rowe, a prominent
white citizen, discussing the Danville riot,
w as overheard by a negro, who denounced
the statement about the riot as a Funder
(meaning a Democrat) lie. The negro
knocked Kowe down. Kowe succeeded in
getting him off, and lieat him pretty sound
ly. The affair atlractod a crowd of whites
and blacks, and for a time trouble was an
ticipated, but was prevented, there is a
fovei ihness in nearly all dUtricts in the
State, anil fears are entertained that riots
will occur in several places to-morrow, if
not to-day. More arms have been sold in
the State in the past ten days than ever
liefore in time of peace, except, probably,
just after the war.

Richmond, Va.. November o. An im
mense mass-meeting of citir.ens of Rich
mond was held at the First Regiment Ar
murv Sunday evening to express their
sentiments oo'uecrning the riot at lanville.
A preamble setting forth that tho conflict
lietween the races in Dan villi; was the re
sult of a conspiracy to force the issue upon
tho white people by the leaders of the
coalition movement was adopted, together
with the following resolution:
First. That in the conflict which took
place at Danville the while people sym
pathise freely w ith their own race.
Sffwii. That we have the fullest confi
dence in the truthfulness of the address
sent out by the citizens of Danville, with
whom one or more, of us arc personally
Third. That whenever this conflict
shnll take phn'O in the State of Virginia,
all w lutes are affectionately, earnestly and
solemnly entreated to take the pant of
their own race.
Fourth. The history of Virginia up to
and including the present time shows that
they have never raised the race issue. The
question was forced on the white men
against their protest and in an offensive
Fij'lh. In this particular canvass the
race question was forced upon them,

The excitement hero the past, few days
has been intense, particularly since the
riot in Danville. While a collision between
the whites and blacks in Richmond is not
very likely, vet tho feeling is such that it
w ill require but a slight hostile movement
to precipitate a riot. Thi whites are mak

Washington, November 5. Judge Fer
ris, Second Auditor of the Treasury, in
his annual report, exposes the methods by
which soldiers in the late war and the
government are being swindled bv un
principled attorneys and agents. He says
not one in ten applicants for arrears of pay
and bounty possesses any merit, and not
one in twenty ot all these claims is hied
uiKin the suggestion or by the voluntary
action of the claimant. The attorney seeks
his client, nnd represents to the unin
formed, more generally colored, soldiers
or their heirs that they have not been
paid all that is justly due them ; that some
new law, or new construction of the ex
isting law, entitles them to more bounty
or further pay. A small fee in advance is
reciuired, generally 2 or $3, sometimes
more, in tact, all that can lie got, with the
promise that no more wilt be demanded
unless the claim be allowed. The fee is
allowed, the application filed, and
m the end rejected. the attorney
rarely looks after the claims; it
Iocs not pay. lie has received his
little advance fee and it pays better to
hunt more victims. The "soldiers are
swindled, and alter their claims are re
jected, frequently denounce the govern
ment ami its oincers, who snnpiv adminis
ter the law as thev find it. Another class
of claims are constantly increasing,
namelv, chums for bounties already paid
In many ot these cases denials ot ioroier
payments are made under oath, when the
records of this oliiee, authenticated in the
highest manner known to law and the
courts, show conclusively that the pay
ments were made years ago. to perjury
s sometimes added forgery ; the time since
the war increases the chances of success
to perjurors mid forgers. Should these
roconls be destroyed, nnd such a calamity
is not licyond tue palo of possibility, the
government certainly will be defrauded
out of millions of dollars.

Imuakaaoi.is, November 5. The mys
tery surrounding the disappearance "of
Mary Churchill, daughter of the St. Louis
merchant, has been solved by the com
plete identification of the missing girl in
this city. After a fruitless search of near
ly two months by detectives all over the
land, Pr. Fletcher, of the Insane Hospital,
was struck w ith a description of the miss
ing girl to the remarkable closeness with
which it answered the appearance of a
domestic in the laundry department, and
at once notified the authorities, who, in
company with 1 nomas J. Gallagher, of
the St. Louis (Hobt-IMmocrat, called at the
asylum and identified the girl. She gives
no reason tor tier sudden disappearance.
She left the city last night in comnanv
with her father to pav a brief visit to her
mother, but declares she can make her
own living, and informed Dr. Fletcher
that she would report for duty Wednesday
Lnt.r. Miss Churchill left with her
friends on the late train last night for St
Louis. She declined to take any of her
effects, saying she would lie back next
V edncsday, and requested Dr. i letcher to
keep her place for her. Prof. McElver,
elocutionist, reports that Miss Churchill.
as Miss Lockwood, came to him last Au
gust for instructions m elocution, and rep-
resemea inai ner parents were dead ; tbat
she was a graduate of the St. Louis schools,
and that she had determined to go on tiie
stage. Prof. McElvey discouraged her
plans, pointing out the difficulties
in the way. .She went away, but returned
again in September and arranged a date to
commence a course in elocution. McElvev
learning, subsequently, that Dr. Fletcher
had withheld his consent, declined to ac
cept her as a student. In his judgment,
she is undoubtedly stage-stmck. He does
not appear to have a very high apprecia
tion of her talent in that direction. She
sings well, but her voice is not suited for
dramatic work.

"She came here," 6aid Dr. Fletcher, o'
the Indiana Asylum,rto a (Hvlir-Vemonrat
reporter, "about the 3d or 4th of Septem
ber. She came to me and applied for
work. I asked her what she could do, and
she answered that she could do anything.
1 was struck by her appearance, anil con
cluded at once that she was getting be
neath her station and training in applying
for the work we could give her hero. I took
up her hands and looked at them. They
showed no signs of work, and I said to
her, 'My little lady,, yon have never done
any work, yon can't to do our work.' 'Oh,
yes, I can, she answered. She acted so
much like a lady nnd pleaded so hard for
a place that I finally said : 'I have no place
for you, but I will make one,' so I placed
her under Mrs. Francis A. Talbot, matron
of the iron-room in the department for
women. I am glad that I did so, for she
has proved an exemplary girl, and I think
almost as much of her as if she was one of
my own family. When she came she had
the life of Marie Antoinette under her arm,
and since she has been here she lias read
works on history nnd Grecian n.vthologv.
Oh, I tell yon she was a rare character
among asylum girls. She asked permis
sion to practice on the piano, and I cave it
to her and she delighted everybody by her
performances. Jiut here s Sirs. Talbot

Upon being assured that she would not
be disturbed if she did not desire to go

inclinations, Man- repeated her question
to the reporter, "How did vou find me?"
"I traced you here from l)ecatur."

rents were rejoiced to hear from you, and
the only thing your father feared was that
you would expose yourself to hardship
rather tiiad reveal j'tjnr whereabouts. If
you need anything it is his desire that vou
obtain it without delay at his expense."
This information struck a tender chord,
and Mary cried bitterly for n few minutes,
and convulsively exclaimed: "Oh! can I
go home?. How can I go home? No, no.
I must not think of it.
Her next question was: "Are thev all

the only thing that has made me
mad was the story that got out that I
went over there to meet that nastv Mr.

went to his school. I never looked at a
paper, and was afraid to, but that story
got to my ears, and it made m ko mad
that I determined to write home, and that
was the reason I wrote. Bnt, to continue
my story. I went back to the house, put

was nobody in the alley w hen f ot out al
the gate, and I turned east toward Bean

the alley a colored boy, who lived just
across the alley f ronvour gate, met me, and
my heart came up into mv mouth. I was
just sure be would recognize me, but he
didn't, and I felt greatly relieved when I
got away from him. When 1 got to Beau
mont street I arossed and went straight
down the alley to lefIerson avenue. There
I turned over to Morgan street and went
down on the south side of it for a number
of blocks ; I can't remember how many.
From Morgan street I went south to
Washington avenue, and walked east along
it to Fourteenth street. Then I turned
south again and walked on the west side
of that park in front of the First Presby
terian church, and kept along that way to
the next park, on what streets 1 can't say.
I was really too much excited to remem
ber the streets I was on. 1 know that on
Twelfth street 1 passod tiie north end of

himself last Saturday, was that death re
sulted trom a pistol shot hred by Johnson,
at Ins otlice, lietween midnight and ti
o'clock a.m. Saturday, while in a state of
mental derangement.
Statement of Mr. King- and Mr. Dawson,
of the iloM-l.
The suicide of Johnson is supposed to

Mrs. King, who took tea with Mrs. Bow

the attair. She savs that her little (laugh
ter had been over to Mrs. Kowell's in the
aitemoon to plav with the Howell chil
dren, and when Mrs. King returned she
tound tne itiree children at her house.
They brought with them a note from Mrs,
Kowell to -Mrs. Xing, in which the writer
said that she had unexpectedly received a
dispatch trom a triend who would take
tea with her, and that she was not pre
pared for visitors at supper, and asking
.Mrs. Kin? if she could not help her out of
her diinculty. taking some cake, cold
meat and bread in a basket, Mrs. King
carried it to the Rowell house, leaving
the children at her home. Mrs. King
lounu airs, noweu trying hard to get up
a presentable supper, with very little to
work with. It was then train time, and
Mrs. Uowell expected her guests any mo
ment, though she was not properly
dressed to receive ' them. Mrs. king
sent her up-stairs to make her
toilet, while she (Mrs. King) pre
pared the supper. Mrs. liowell did not go
to the ti-ain to meet Lvnch, and it was
somewhere near 6 o clock when he ar
rived. Mrs. King had left word at home
for her husband to call for her, and just
after they had sat down to the table he
came. Air. King was anxious to get home
and his wife excused herself and returned
with him at aliout 8:30 o clock. The chil
dren had been put to bed by the servant.
and at Mrs. King s suggestion thev were
not disturbed. Mrs. liowell was brought
to the King house at about midnight.

under arrest. From information obtained
by detectives, and the statements of wit

at 322 East Thirtieth street, he assanlted
several persons without cause, and finally
attacked Keenan, who was quietly slanti

the policeman nor anybody else. After
shooting him without warning, he dragged
him from the saloon and clubbed him long
after he became unconscious. Conrov
