THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-THURSDAY, APEIL 17. 1884.
HEMPHIS APPEAL. TBTIiSDAY, s i i LTB1L 17, 1884 vi r WEB T'rMsX Bl'ltKEM PKIKCI. PLEA. "Wlille the debate on the Morrison bill is going on. and it if m performance likely to endure some days, it will be well for thooe who read what is said to hare it fixed in their minds whether redaction of the present high tariff is or is not re quired by the exiting state of things. The matter really is one of business, and it is well to be acquainted with the busi ness aspect of it before regarding the political features of the case. It will be remembered that when the tariff was re Tised last year, it was with a view to lower duties twenty to twenty-fire per cent, as a means of relief to certain classes of consumers, and as the proper way to reduce the redundant revenue of the government. How far the revision lias failed or accomplished these objects is the measure of its value, and the indicator of whether any further re vision is required. The New York Chronicle has given a number ot tables showing the effect of the revision, a.- far as exemplified up to the end of March. The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee estimated that the chances made by revision would decrease tariff receipts $45,(100,000 and internal revenue receipts $31,790,344. Nine months, have passed, and they have fig ures indicative a loss of $24,000,000, in stead of SLU"! 1,000, of internal revenue. Coming to the customs receipts and com paring them with those of the cor responding months of 18S2-S3 we find a decrease during thy first quarter of $7, 5Ot'.O00, second quarter $5,250,000, and third quarter $3,000,000. Here we see that the fulling off in revenue from the tariff revision, which altogether has been less than S16.0n0.000, is in a state of con stant decrease, so that on the last three mouths it amounted to a mere $1,000,000 a month. The most amazing fact devel oped ly the ChronicWt figures is that the luss ia due to nothing but to a falling off in imports. It does not come from the revision of the tariff at all. .This important fact is demonstrated by the Chronicle in a table showing the mer- rhsndiHe imports and customs receipts, far the whole cine months for two years, which brinrrs out the remarkable result that for the last quarter our customs rev enue has fallen off onlv $300,000, al thouirh the imports are more than $10,- ItnO.fHiO less. It follows that the per centage of customs duties to imports is really greater in 1884 than for the same month in 1333, being 30.32 percent, now against 30.25 then. The prospect, there fore, is that the revenue of the year will be $13 U "0,000 more than the govern ment needs. As excessive taxation is one of the causes of the existing business depression, to remove that amount from tne tariff would relieve not only con sumers individually, but the whole busi ness of the country, by lightening the tax burlen that lies ujon trade. Viewed in it business aspect and putting aside other considerations, we sec that a re duction of the tariff would be of advan tre in a plain business point of view such a view as any intelligent business man would take in his own business management. Such being the case, now business is depressed and relief eagerly - I'ttt ttt! sWr. -wtixt a J!T ttiafr muj lins -ar anybody should step in and strive to leave the country involved in its unre lieved burdens and troubles. THE ADV4KTAUC r SOrTHEtX HI I.I.N. According lo the laws which govern political economy, the presumptiow is natural that Southern cotton-mill pos- ess marjv advantages over the' mills of the North. This question ias elicited a very interesting discussion through the columns of the Charleston JVetrs and Courier. A few weeks since AV. H. Young, president of the Eagle and I'hur-uix Manufacturing Company, of Co lumbus, (ia., published a statement in trhic h he took the position that a South ern niiii consuming fifty bales of cotton a dny would have an advantage of $330 daily over a Northern mill consuming the same number of bales. This" statement, diialc by the intelligent president of one of the leading cotton-mills of the South, atr:ictd much attention, and if true, dt'Uioiistrated what was the inevitable result, the c?rtain removal of the North ern mill. to the South, where they could avail themselves of the advantages of the Southern mills. But this statement made by President Young was denied by a correspondent, who aigus himself "SpioneT," and says that be, too. is presi dent of a Southern cotton-mill. The AVjrtawff Courier, of Saturday last, con tiins President Young's reply to the communication of "Spinner," and he goes thoroughly into details and shows most conclusively that there can no longer be any question as to the advan tages of the Southern cotton manufac turers over niaiufacturers in the North. The Xrtrt ami Courier, in publishing President Young's rcpl? to "Spinner," fcays: "By figures that no one is likely to diepute successfully, Mr. Young shows that the saving of a Southern mill, by reason of its proximity to the cottou-fielJ-;. is $:73 a day on fifty bales, or $111.!"imi for a year of 300 working day. This is equal to seven per cenUa year on a capital of f 1.503.571. The advantage is so Teat that it is not surprising to see so many new mills going up in every pirt of the Soutli. Capitalists are quick t'j learn the advantages of one lo cility over another, and a steady stream of gold would flow into the South if the tariff wall were 'owered or taken down altorether, so that we could have the world as a market." There is nothing startling or absurd in the rev elations made by President Young. On the contrary, his developments showing th " advantages possessed by the cotton mills of the South over foreign and Nor;berr competition in the manufac ture of cot ton goods, is the result of the natural laws whieu govern trade. The raw material is at the verv doors of the Southern mills. Till, advantage will make the Soutli the ft of the world's cotton industry. The South, tu every natural advantage over the Nortu toT rot Um manufacturing. lu the matter of climate, continuity of power, nearness to the raw material, cheapness of labor, the South has every advantage, which i confirmed by satisfactory dividends. rtTctT Asrn TntsrRMicurr The large susi which Congress baa voteu in d f extension of educa tion where illiteracy is prevalent appear likely to cuse trouble in Utah. The Christians of uat Territory have lonj complained that, a'bough they are com pelled to pay taxes i-t support of the schools there, the school Ce conducted upon a plan which exclude tiem from ending their children to the scboOM they are made to sustain. The money appro priated by Congress will be paid over to the State authorities, wh will distribute iias maybe required. The Governor of the State and Territoris applying for a portion of the grant will be required to present a Katement of the character of the public school system in their juris diction, the amount of school funds raised there, whether discrimination are isade be.twws wl it and .colored pupil, aiiU so on. iucludicc lie fact MM t th schools beic? a'WauJy susecta rku. The Silt 11 7Ho, a Christian Eewspaj-er, "aa will the Governor of that Territory iio under iLeae cireuaisunoet? There i what is called a system of public schools in Utah, but the Trihime savs no statis tics are available showing the amount of funds raised for school purposes.. Al though called public schools, they are strictly sectarian and are in the complete and absolute control of the polygamista. Persons applying for the place of teach ers in them are subject to religious tests, and must be of the polygamous faith, or they are rejected, and on what grounds? On the grounds that they are not ol good moral character, polygamista being highly accomplished judges of what is moral. The schools are practically and solely the educational branch of the polygamist organization. They are not free to all, they are not unsectarian, their teachings favor an immoral faith, cap public virtue, encourage aisoDeai- enoe to the laws of the country, are a dark blot upon the public conscience and a vicious corruptier of youth. These statement of the Tribune are not con cocted for the occasion, for we have seen them exhibited in it columns often, and long before the Congressional grant was thought of. That paper thinks, as mat ters stand, the chance for Utah obtaining money from the grant is exceedingly slim, and it adds; "If the passage of the bill shall be the incentive to breaking up the iniquitous system now existing here, and making the public schools of the Ter ritory free, and in truth non-sectarian, then the measure will have had it uses, even in far-off Mormondom." BKITISH OL1, WHO EA.RH krtXB ir. AXD The Nashville World tells of a way farer inquiring, of a resident of the dis trict be was passing .through, what work the men were doing in the surrounding fields. Putting in cotton and corn and rearing pork and beef for the sake of British gold, as that is the article for which two-thirds of the cotton and two fifth of the wheat and a large propor tion of the beef and pork are raised. And what are those doing at the furnace yonder? Making pig-iron. Is that to go for British gold also? Oh, no! By Congressional permission it is used to draw from the farmer's pockets the Brit ish gold that bought their products. The Kansas City Timet also gives a hint of bow events are beginning to affect the farmers in that immensely agricultural part of the country. Wheat, it says, was the other day down to seventy-eight cents, with contracts to deliver in Liver pool at $1 a bushel, for the farmer has no law to protect him against the pauper-ra'sed wheat of Europe, nor does he ask any. His wheat must bear the competition of the ryots of India and the freed serfs of Russia. Congress allows him no bounty to protect him from pauper labor, but the manu facturer must have protection, so that he may secure big profits because people in other countries employ pauper labor, There are more than twenty farmers to one manufacturer, but they are not or ganized, or practiced in lobby manage ment, as the monopolist are, and there fore they must pay out of their moderate gains what ets up ironmasters and sugar lords in their carriages and their state, while they themselves must trqdge about in their fields through wet, and cold, and heat, to obtain Jhe British gold the mo nopolists spend. Is this state of things to last forever? SKllbE AID COVSTITITIOJIAl, ItLtlMIUN. The departures which have been made, step by step, from cardinal principles that the revolutionary fathers considered indispensable to the preservation of our national liberties, especially the thor ough breaking away from the authority" of the constitution to precedents set by governments having systems radically diverse from our own, in the legal-tender decision, has led many thoughtful citi zens to inquire whether the time has not come when our constitution should be revised, and that mass of precedents and technicalities which have led the Su preme Court away from the plain lan guage of the constitution into the mazy path of hypothesis and inferences drawn from the practices of monarchical coun tries done away. If the result should be a decision to revise, then the constitu tion ought to give to Congress the power to regulate the law of marriage. The boy and girl marriages, marriages on mo mentary impulse, marriages into which victims are seduced by artful plots, and marriages that lead to lawsuits and uncer tainty of legitimate birth of offspring, all show the necessity of a cen tral regulating authority upon the subject. The hideous divorce cases, frequent separations, and broken-up fam ilies, that are the result of the unsystem atic way in which people can get mar ried in this country, all cry out, trumpet tongued. against our present marriage laws. Had a good, sound, wall-sustained marriage law existed, the horrors and abominations of the polygamist could never have come into being. Under the present want of system almost anything passed for marriage. That is a contract formed with a looseness the law would never countenance in the formal contracts of ordinary business. Par ties contracting marriage should every where be required to take out license, have a public record made of the actual marriage, and receive a cer tificate of the marriage. A case is now before a New York court in which a boy and a girl, for the amusement of the company at a party they attended, went through the ceremony of marriage such ceremony as suffices at present to consti tute a marriage and now the two are probably legally fast bound, although they no more wish to be man and wife than a mile-stone and a lamp-post do. The moral sense of the community ought to compel an end to be put to these ex isting evils and their atrocious results. POLITICAL COSTEXTIOXS. Honth Carolina KrpnBllcana Coi i-mbia, 8. C, April 16.

GRANT FOR LOGAN. The Geaeral Rgards His Candidacy for the Presidency Permanently Set tled Fonr Tear Ago, Comes Out Squarely for the Stan from Illinois, aad Sees So Season . ' Why He Should Not be oui mated The German Minister at Washington to be Recalled. WASHINGTON, D. C. From th. IlesTular Correspondent of the Appeal Washington, April 15. Just before he left the Arlington Hotel last Saturday, on his departure for New York, Gen. Grant was asked by a friend if there was any probability that hi name would be brought before the Chicago Convention. "None whatever," answered Grant; "I regard my candidacy as having been per manently settled four years ago. Since that time I have never contemplated any office so far as my occupancy of it is con cerned. No man can refuse to serve hi country, but I cannot imagine any emer gency which would again call me into public life. I am for Logan, and no one else, 1 see no good reason why he should not be nominated. . It is not the man who goea into the convention with the most vote who gets the nomination." EXCLUSIVE?; ESS IN THK HOTSE. The recent order of the House of Rep resentatives setting apart a certain space in the House restaurant for the exclusive use of the members, has raised an unpleasant breeze among the army of employes, as well as others. Here tofore everybody was good enough to go in and occupy any seat that happened to be vacant. But the present House, imi tating the Senate in their line of aristo cratic exclusiveness, concluded to put up partitions, thus walling off the common herd while they were absorbing food and drink. The majority of employes and committee clerks are local politicians who were active in securing the election of their favorite Congressman, and hold their present positions as rewards for valuable campaign services. They are in a state of deep disgust, and last night an informal meeting was held to give vent to their feeling. They openly characterized as contemptible the conduct of any member of Congress who thought himself "too good to associate with the employes." They resolved that if the Representatives per sisted in their course, they would get up a circular for distribution in the Congres sional districts setting forth that the men in Congress have set up a degrading dis tinction between themselves and those who work for a living. Many Congress men are seriously exercised over the mat ter, and have been quick to disclaim all responsibility. The discontent has become so loud in the last day or two that it is more than probable the obnoxious order will be recinded, and that members and employes will continue to clink glasses, if not together, over the same table. THE GERMAN MINISTER TO BE RECALLED. Though it has ben officially denied that the German Minister in Washington is to be recalled, it is known that the German government has been considering the ad visability of such a step. The withdrawal of Mr. Sargent and the failure of this gov ernment to fill the vacancy, is not looked upon in a friendly light by the German government, particularly the delay in ap pointing a successor to Mr. Sargent. Though a denial has been put in, it is be lieved in diplomatic circles that Minister Von Eisendecker will be recalled, if for nothing else, to illustrate the Emperor's willingncea to reciprocate an act of cold ness on the part of the United States. PUBLIC BLILDINOS. The evidences are that the powerful combination of members, organized in the early part of the session, to force the pas sage of the public-buildings bill is rapidly weakening. This was noticed in the re in.rk.hla ormnse of votes last week. On Monday a special day, to continue indef initely, was set apart for the consideration of bills of the class mentioned. This mo tion was carried by an immense majority, fully two-thirds of the members voting for it. On Friday Thompson, of Ken tucky, gave notice that be would move to rescind this arrangement, and on Saturday he made a motion to that effect. This motion was lost by a small vote, after a tight of several hours duration. Ir was observed that many members who sup ported Thompson voted in exactly the op posite way on the preceding Monday. This was particularly the case with the Texas delegation, which more than any other is interested in the bills, the num ber for the Lone Star State being seven. Reagan, Culberson and others of the del egation who changed took the ground that while their State was larjrelv interested, they could not for the sake of local advantage, submit to a combination that involved such palpable extravagance. They say that, as matters now stand, they would be satisfied if only two of the bills for Federal buildings in the State would pass. One hundred and fifty thousand dollar for a building at Keokuk, la., and the same enormous sum for a little In diana town, is a sample of the reckless extravagance of the members forming the combination. Both of the towns men tioned bave very little Federal business, and one fourth of the appropriation asked for would be ample. But members hav ing meritorious bills will bave to support these two extravagant bills or endanger their own interest. The impression is that the combination will be crushed this reek by the passage of a motion similar to Mr. Thompson's. TOWN CREEK, ALA. From a Special Correspondent of the Appaal.1 Tows Ckeek, April 15. Twenty miles south of this place, a few days since, a hotly contested battle took place between the sheriff of this (Lawrence) county and a posse of men on one side and a gang of thieves and robbers, composed of the Brookses, Baker, Johnson and others, supposed to be a dozen in the gang. Sev eral shots were fired by each side, result ing in the killing of highly ret petted citizen named Phillips, who was with the sheriff, and one of the Brookses, belonging to the gang. The gang was defeated and escaped into the jangle of the mountain. The sheriff and his posse are still in pur suit. This gang is becoming notorious for their depredations upon the citizens of the section in which they are operating. They were raised in the section near where the fight took place. a. x. v. TREXTOS, TEXX. From th. Regular Correspondent of th. Appeal. Tbsntos, April 16. We had a very heavy fall of rain in thi county yesterday and last night, accompanied yesterday evening by a very hard wind which did some damage. - Farmers were busy planting corn until tbe rain checked them. There i a good deal of wheat va n in thi county, and it is looking well and promises heavy yield. The fruit prospect is very good. In one month the strawberry season will be on us. The southern part of this county, along the lines of the Louisville and Nashville and Illinois Central railroads, is exten sively engaged in growing fruits and veg etable. Now a few words about the manufactur ing interests of Gibson county. There are number of good saw-mills scattered all over the county, about which nothing need be said. Trenton has two very large flourii.g-mills. The Gibson County Man ufacturing Company is connected with one of them.. .The company's factory is now turning out chairs, felloe, spokes, etc Near this are the Trenton Oil-Mills. These mills were erected last summer by home capital. Thi company has bought thousands of dollar worth oi cotton-seed at a much higher price than seed have ever brought here before. The capacity of the mills will be enlarged by next season. The plow factory and machine hops of J. L Walls & Son make the celebrated Jarrell A Parry plows, also stationary engines, etc The broom fac tory here also doe a good business. The Trenton Furniture Factory will commence operation very soon, ana will do an ex 'f?nsj business. Six miles west of town Dr. Georgo Williams makes a specialty of fids whiteoak uilods. Six miles south west from town, on the Brownsville road, Fitzgerald & Gardner are just beginning pa manufacture spokes and felloes, and five miles further on Wise A. Cooper has recently pet up stave factory and will make a specialty cf tight-barrel white oak staves. Near this factory Mr. Cooper also ha large Bteam saw-mill and a Souring mill run by water power. Th Humboldt Buggy and Wagon Factory, at Humboldt, make th celebrated "Charter Oak" wagon, for which they had an order at one time for iOO wagons from i other States. In addition to ail kind ot vehicle, thi company manufacture a 1 great deal of fruit-box material. The marble yards at Humboldt and Milan do a large business. At Rutherford Mr. B. A. Smith makes the celebrated Smith cotton gin. In the Nineteenth District Sr. Mor ris has a stave factory, which is turning out hundreds of staves and heads daily. These are the principal manufacturing es tablishments of the county. They give employment to hundreds of hands and bring thousands of dollars into our midst, which adds very materially to the wealth of the county. While the financial af fairs of the county seem to have been managed badly, yet there ia not more prosperous county in the State. What has been said about it is wholly unsolicited. All the establishments are doing well and need no advertisement from me. Gibson county is not seeking to draw emigrants or foreign capital to her borders. - . A. 0. D. DTERSBl-RG, TENS. Rerular Correspondence of the Appeal. Dyersbubo, April 15. The frost has net hurt any of the fruit or vegetables in this section, and the prospect is very flattering for an abundant harvest of all these good things. And right here let me remark that it ia a shame to any man who owns even one acre of soil not to have an abundance of luscious strawberries, su perb raspberries, besides peaches and other small fruits. Any man who owns a home and does not have these thing in season is not doing his duty by his chil dren. The most interesting and successful re vival is now in progress at the Cumberland Presbyterian church that has ever been held in Dyersburg. It is ably -conducted by Brothers Brigham, Robinson and Dickey, and has taken hold of the people in earnest, in cluding saloon keepers, lawyers and doc tors, and all clashes and ages. As yet, no candidate for Congress has announced himself from this county. It is possible that Capt. S. R. Latta may yet come ont; if so, this district should by all means send him, as he is beyond 'any doubt the ablest man, the most ready de bater, the best informed on all questions, that can be sent from this district. We have a number of good men - who have already come out, and who would make good representatives, but Capt. Latta is a man of more genuine ability, the most unswerving fidelity to hi convictions, of ripe age and experience, cool, self-possessed, logical, and a splendid speaker. He is never at a loss to takes sides on any question; be takes a decided stand and pushes visorously forward. There is no superior in the Tennessee delegation to Capt. Latta nor has there been in many years. This county will stand solidly by him when the time comes. beiobteb. QCAIiASTINE Tn be Rigidly Enforced by the New Or leans 11 a. r4 or HHltt, Wbiekt 11 a.

Tou advise placing Allcock's Porous Plasters, in dyspepsia, on the pit of the stomach ; in agiie cake, on the spleen ; in torpid liver, over that organ ; but I really think you should also recommend that oneortwo plasters be put over the kidneys. They stimulate, strengthen and act as powerful diuretics, thus casting out many poisonous acids and salts. I have had fever and ague. All remedies I took pro duced little or noeftect until I put an All cock's Porous Plaster over each Kidney; their action being more than doubled, the malaria was quickly washed away. I have also had several attacks of rheumatism and two of gout, and by applying the plas ters over the local pain and also over the kidneys, I again found your plasters won derfully efficacious. h. k. thohae.

At Grand Haven at 4:50 this morning the walls of Hubbard's store, remaining after the late fire, were blown down in the pre vailing gale, and crashed the adjoining building, used as a dwelling by Daniel Ot feldt, burying in the ruins Mrs. Offeldt, a three-year-old daughter and a boarder named Murphy. All were killed. As steam-barge was entering the harbor at Grand Haven this morning a man named Amers was lost overboard and drowned.

Prime Minister Ferry gave a general discussion ot the present political situation in France. lie said most of the foreign questions awaiting solution when ne assumed omce had been settled. He spoke in high praise of the gallantry ot the r rench troops in lonqum and said to it was due the settlement of the troublesome Tonquin question. Com ing nearer home, the speaker said France could never allow foreign interference with her legitimate interests in Europe. In his opinion, the French Democracy could exercise a peaceful and salutary in fluence on turope, which had sunered in tbe past irom failure to preserve a proper balant e of power. The true policy ol France should be to continue linn and steadfast in her present course. Frequent changes of government were detrimental to her best interests, and would result in leaving the btate with no sure basis on which to stand. The present government had been more successful than its predecessors in the management of . foreign affairs, because it has had the support of Jrarliament, and therefore been enabled to address foreign nations with authority. The in tentions of the government, he said, are not obscure. Europe knows with whom we consort, and with whom we refuse to consort. The time had now arrived, the speaker thought, when the country was ready to discuss the revision of the con stitution. The government was desirous of such revision, bnt thought it should be moderate and based upon the actual terms ot the constitution at present in force. Referring to the approaching municipal elections, he said he expected they would be completely republican. FOREIGN FLASHES. London, April 16.

ReftectionM in Pairrtint, is miit up of a selection from tbe let ten writ tea by him during his sojourn in the T'oly Lnd. The introduction fit written from Khartoam. The letters of George Eliot, which are now being prepared for publication by ber hus band. Mr. Cross, abound in references to tbe American civil war and the Franco-German ptruufde. The writer shows much interest in the r rench republic, but she was entirely with tier- many in the war of 1870. Mr. Cross is makiaic such slow progress in his work of editing that the dkk is not UKeiy to be ready betora tae begin ning of the next year. The appointment of Edward A. Freeman to the professorship of modern history at Oxford. vacated by tne elevation oi trt Mubus to tne bishopric of Chester, is a fortunate one. No En glish historian is more deeply imbued with the spirit of accurate and philosophical investigation than Mr. Freeman, and though he has not the graciousnesa of manner which is desirable in a teacher, his great and well-deserved reputation will be a stimulus to the students who may listen to his expositions of historic -causes and effects. Mr. Gardiner, his unsuccessful competitor though an in vcstigiitor of rare learning and im partiality, i- probably inferior to Mr. freeman in breadth of view and imaginative perception, and there will probably be but one opinion among the most competent judges as to the selection. The Augusta (Ga.) Cfironicle describes some ot the eiitors in attendance at the Southern Pre" Association, and savs : One of the notice able men of the body was Mr. F. W.

LEXIERS FROM THE TEOPLE. L.nael vs. Cotton-Seed. To the Editors of the Appeal : As considerable has been written about the diversity of crops, I wish to suggest the many advantages of linseed and flaxseed. They will certainly pay as well, if not better, than any thing raised in the South, and more especially in this section, as we have the manufactures right at our doors. Our cotton-seed mills have the identical machinery used by tbe linseed crushers, and can compete favorable with the West ana Northwest for sales. Flaxseed and linseed are worth to-day in Chicago $1 0 per bushel of fifty six pounds. They yield from forty to forty-five bushels to the acre. The flax tow would find a ready market at home if the proposed bagging factory is started, which is highly probable in the near future. In the West the mills advance the seed to the planters on the erudition they return the amount advanced when the crop is harvested. Our climate is conducive to this crop, and in addition to having a new indus try, we would revive the precent prostration ex isting among our cotton-seed crushers, represent ing $1,5X),W0, who have run mills at a loss for the past two years. In addition to the above crop the castor bean is very profitable, and ia exten sively used. Linseed cake is equally as rood as c--t ton -seed cake as a feeder and castor cake for a fertiliser. I trust some of our mill men and etton -growers will exaratna this matter with a view to some good results. OlL-UAKE. Plstre a six Dames. To the Editors of the Appeal : Silence is sometimes golden, but eloe it may be construed into admission of error, in the recent apotheosis of tbe "champion of the rock pile," I raise one dissenting voice, even that of a woman, against unwomanly punishment for wo man. The Arnlnmcltt, becanse of the reputed en worthiness of the late sufferers, and because a physician, who, with the medical knowledge he was supposed to possess, might have positively spoken, preferred to imply a doubt, also in that two sick women escaped, in the words of the Avu liinehe "apparently with uncrippled wing," there fore the Avntanche doubted that any wrong had been done. The flikht of tbe women was a most fortuitous circumstance when viewed in the light of the fact that lr. Black was informed, since be asserted there was a doubt, that an examination would be demanded, that night the two female prisoners walked out of tbe hospital. The evil for which I hoped amendment sti.l exists. Woman are daily condemned to a labor for which they are constitutionally unfit, and so long as this brutality exists, so long in the "face of clenched antaronisms" will I protest. History had taught me that an individual could have but scant hope of protecting the weak against the ffroag, that a private eitiien who cannot boast as Mr. Iladden does, of irraith and position, eonld ill afford ti attack the banded ofbcials of a city, but, having nothing to retract, 1 dare still hope that among theo-S.OdO inhabitants who did not sign the in dorsement of the present incumbent, may be found sufficient to successfully oppose further cruelty to woman, for while one stone remains upon another to be broken by a woman, so long will least a stone at the otfififwl who compels it, VIRGINIA B.

Washington, April 16. The House Committee oa Coinage, AV eight and Meas ures to-day unanimously instructed Rep resentative Lacey to report favorably hi bill to prohibit the issue of Treasury note of less than $5, and orovide for the issue of $1, $2 and $5 silver certificates. The bill provide that on and aft.nr th naasnma of the act it shall be Unlawful for the Sec retary of the Treasury to print and issue Treasury notes of a smaller denomination than $5, and any holder of standard silver dollars or silver certificates mav deposit the same with the Treasurer, or anv ol the assistant treasurers of the United" States, in sums of not less than $10, and receive therefor silver certificates of the denomi nations, at the option of the holder. SI. $2 and $5, provided that nothing therein contained shall interfere with the issues of silver certificates in other de nominations, and now nrovided bv law. The following feature of the original bill was stricken out: "Provided that whenever standard silver dollars in the Treasury not held for the redemption of silver certificates of the denomination of $1 and $2 shall exceed the amount of $20, 000,000, the Secretary of the Treasury may suspend the coinage of standard silver dol lars provided for in the act of February 28, 1878, during the period such excess continues to exist."

Representatives of the boards of trade and chambers of commerce of the various cities who are here to urge the suspension of the coinage of silver for two years. made argument to-day beiore the Banking and Currency Committee. Nathan Cole, of St. Louis, said greater apprehension filled the minds of the business men to day than ever before. This last turn in the scale, he thought, would precipitate this country on to a silver basis. "How can $168,000,000 silver In this country drive' out $000,000,000 in gold ?" asked Mr. Buckner. "Gold is being exported verv rapidly. This is occasioned bv loss of trade. The fear now is that the people, through apprehension of the scarcity of gold, and very soon if the export continues, will clamor for it and it will be hoarded. What will be the result? The Secretary of the Treasury will say he cannot pay gold, but must pay silver. Then wili come trouble." C. S. Smith presented a memorial peti tioning for tbe suspension of the coinage of silver and discontinuing the issue of $1 and $2 bills, sent by the Kew York Cham ber of Commerce. Mr. Buckner said he thought no appro priation would be made by the Committee on Appropriations for printing bill less than $5. Mr. Smith continued : "When the Sub Treasury in New York says to the Clear inghouse, 'You're got to take silver for your balances,' a panic will come. Tbe effect of the suspension of coinage would hurt 'nobody but silver men, the pos sible danger of putting the government on a silver basis would be prevented and a panic, which would result from contrac tion, averted." Messrs. Butler, of New Haven, and John Agno and 11. P. Boyden of Cincinnati, made brief remarks. Mr. Cosby presented a memorial from the Chicago Board of Trade similar to that prepared by the New York Chamber of Commerce. DESTRUCTION OF UJIXE.

Chattanooga Danocrai; A Democrat re porter had an interview with Mr. Charles Gower, one of the men who were rescued from Lookout cave Sunday,Mart?h 30th,and found him to be a gentleman of tine ad dress and culture. The following is the history of the affair as given to-day. Tae Atftventwre la Laaltaat IB a at I a iave. We entered the cave at 9 o'clock a.m., March 15th, to &atify n rnrio-ity. When I y we, 1 mean myeell and Mr. Chris. iSchmitton. We had a a-las lantern and a bottle of oil. with which to replenij-h W hen we had advanced about three and a half miles we came to a ere. ie about a foot wide and my ettmpamon. who was carrying- the lantern, in hoKliua it over the crev ice to examine the depth, accidentally let it fall, and it went about fifty fuel and struck water. We were in total darkuein then, in a cave, we had never visited before- We knew thtt to return we wouid have to pass pits of rreat and unknown depth that lay immediately Hioujr the path. We knew there raanv bvwavi that would lead us off. but where we did not know. We knew that to atay was death, and any en'ort to return wa hax anious. In this dilemma we thought of the bottle of oil. We in staii tly set to work and prepared a wick by twiMinc a handkerchief and ini-ertiiif it in the bottle. Our minds were filled with anx iety. Both life and death htmc on an un certainly. Thy match was struck and aiplie.il. the blaie flushed up and a fhont rcsnunded from the walls of the cavern. We could not wuit ; our anxiety was to fret out beiore the oil was con sumed. We started and in our hurry took the wroDf course mnd wandered around for some time and found ourselves at the place where we started. This but added to our cntuin. Our oil was nearly fone, the bottlo was Fcttinjrhot. We started acm but had not proceeded far when it exploded. We were almost in ite-pair, for we had bat two matches leit, and nothing to bum. To add to our miseries we were thirsty, and knew no place bnt the one where we had lost our lan tern to fret water. We lny down on our faces and crawled along till we reached that p. int. We tnr the linin from oar coats and made a roie. and cut holes in the brim of my hat ani let it down and drew up water ana quencnea eur thimt; but in drawing it up one ttme the trine broite, the hat was lost. Mv com nan ion would not hold water. We knew we hud to make an effort to escape. We knew the direction we had to n, but were fearful that we might fall into one of the byways, and get into a part of the cave that had never been vUited. We sti'l had a hope that some one asitrht enter the cave, and we would be rescued. e commenced our ds.rk and hazardous journey by crawling and feeliug our way along- Sometimes we would ca.t stones in front ol ut to aeierunue wnen we were Hearing n nit Sometimes thev would full to m crc:tt depth, and then we would know there was a pit. Very often we would find a Hplintcr from a torch that would tell us that wo were richt. At latt my companion fell e vor.il teet and was caucbt by a nroiecttnc shelf, which prevented his falling to a gre:vt depth, lie wns considerably hurt, and after this it was very difficult to get him to pro ceed. We slept, peril up", one-half of the time we were in the cave which very tnurh refreshed us. We took nothing to eat with u? into the cave, but as strange a it mny cein,wedid not suffer much with hunger.
