ESTABLISHED 1S40. MEMPHIS. TENN..- FEIDAY, AUGUST 8. 1884. VOL. XLIV.-NO.191 THE AS OTERWUELHIXO VICTOBT. In the elections yesterday the Dem ocrats swept the county. It will be seen from the returns that Douglass was elected Criminal Court judge, Harris county trustee, and Cannon sheriff. We congratulate the Democratic party and the good men of the Republican party who voted with the Democrats on the result. For two years three of the most impor tant offices will be in safe bands. Cannon and Harris have made brilliant records as official8,and the interests of the people will be safe in their hands. Douglass, as judge, will no doubt keep the Criminal Court on the same high plane and in the same pure channel in which it was placed ly the la mented llorrigan and continued by his worthy successor, the Hon. James M. Greer. There is not much political sig nificance in the result The Republican ticket, composed of an uJvanturer and a Democratic renegade who ax-Id himself for the flesh poU, inspired neither the confi dence nor tho enthusiasm of the party. The Democrats had good men for candi dates, and they have had their reward. The overwhelming defeat otthr ReprrWf" cans yesterday will ) ave its effect upon the November elections, as the friends of Moss, Kinsellaand Hook attribute their defeat to the leading Republican, who either absented themselves or took no in terest in the election, and have ex pressed a determination to take re venge in the Congressional contest in November. Under all the circum stances the victory is most gratifying to the Democratic party. Much credit is due to the Democratic Executive Committee, which struggled with matchless constancy and seal for the trinmph that was achieved. Especial praise is due to the Hon. James M. Harris. For four years he has been the inspiration of the Shelby county Democracy. There is scarcely a Democrat in the county whose brain has not caught EAwfiie and whose arm has not been nerved with new strength from the stirring appeals of his gifted pen and the zeal and enthusiasm he brought to the c j ii test. There is not a true-hearted Dem ocrat in Shelby county who does not feel admiration and gratitude for the tact, zeal and industry he has displayed in the hvt as in former contests. Tiik Nile is rising slowly, and much anx iety is felt for the safety of croj . in lower Egypt. Gov. Hendricks visited the Democratic headquarters at New York yesterday.

In-like mantutr Jeremiah Colbath was elected Vice-President as Henry Wilson." j It wili bo remembered tat Senator Ed munds did uot appear at the Blaine and Logan ratificntlou meeting at Washington. If he has written any letter of congratula tions to the Chicago nominees it has escaped our, observation. The follow ing letter has been unearthed, writ ten four years ago, which may be regarded as explanatory ol Senator Ed munds's present silence: "It is my de liberate opinion that Mr. Blaine acts aa the attorney of Jay Gould. Whenever Mr. Thurman aud I have settled upon legisla tion to bring the Pacffic railroads to terms of equity with the government, up has jumjved James G. Blaine, musket in hand.

Tax new insurance law of New York, soon to go into effect, which makes it an offense for brokers or property-owners to place insurance with companies of other .States not regularly licensed to do busi netifl in New York, is still a themp for pioliflc comment in insurance circles in that tity. The Spectator nays that the Superintendent of Insurance may ultimately agree that the efforts of large firms like Chilli n & Co., and others, to obtain insurance in outside companies uliall not be interfered with ; and that the Superintendent will probably exercise discretion in the construction of the law rather than resort to a test rvte. In regard to the sources of the other State business finding its .way to New York fire insurance olnces, a promi nent underwriter of that city says that a jp-eat deal of this class of business comes irom Texas, Florida, Maine, Michigan and Connecticut.

The State Republi can Executive Committee met pursuant to call in the Senate chamber to-night, the Hon. John R. Lvnch. chairman. Ibe call invited the attendance of leading lie- publicans who are not members of the committee, Independents and others, with out regard to past political affiliations who are opposed to Democratic ascend ency in the national government, and are willinor to support Blaine and Logan. As there are two factions of the party here it is supposed that this 1 was intended to bring both factions together tor the purpose of harmonizing. There were twenty-two membejs present, and proba bly as many more outsiders hq were in vmpathy with the meeting and who were etnbracC1 n tua palj.

Chalmers and Hull announced their ayegiance to the party for this cam paign, and advised harmony, the healmg of all breaches and the concentration of all discordant elements. Mr. B. F. Pratt, from Madison, was the only Republican present not a member of the committee representing the minority faction. He also spoke in the same tenor as Messrs. Chalmers and Hull. The selection of a Presidential electoral ticket haying been heretofore delegated to the Executive Committee by the State Convention, the following were nomi nated as candidates on the electoral ticket : For the State at Large J udge H.

Tii Election Very Close .Vol fet In. -All Belarus ... fciPECIAL TO THE APrKAL.l Kashviix, Tbnn., August 7. Very little interest was manifested in the county election here to-dav until the polls were closed and people began to understand that there was some question whether George K. Whitworth and Thomas E. Moore, regular Democratic nominees for trustee and sheriff, were elected. As the returns from the wards and districts came in they showed that tbe vote for these two officers was very close to Thomas L. Sneed and D. H. Rice, independent 'can didates for the same position. The ex citement is intense and increasing. The result i still doubtful. Later. Election returns are Btill in complete. Five districts are yet to hear from, but the indications are that Thomas H. Sneed, independent candidate for county trustee, is elected by a small majority over Geore K. Whitwarth, the regular nominee. Judge Matt Wallen had no opponent, and ran way ahead of his ticket. The vote between Thomas E. Moore and David D. Rice for sheriff is so close that many' of Moore's friends believe Rice is elected. Sneed' Klectlon Conceded. Nasbvilbjc, August 8, 1 O'clock A.M.

This took place in the small board shanty occu pied bv tne Oklahoma Chief newspaper, tue forms of wnicn were being made up at the time. Payne at first attempted to disccss the lenal aspects of the case, but soon beca-ve angry and very abusive in his language, calling all officers of the government, Irom ttie highest to the lowest, a pacx oi thieves. Cooper, the editor, chimed in with vituperation and threats. Failing to provoke the officers into a quarrel, Payne said he had a valise full of money and he would atve $1000 to bo tried by the United States Gbnrt, and in order-to assure the officers of no ill will against them, would then and there sea them liquor or curare wuiioiit . - Heiiao . or rermit.

Visit to the Democratic Ileadauarters at Washington Casey Young's Loss to the Next Congress. Men Who Have Committed Sniclda While Members of Congress Some Interesting Incidents. Gross Neglect and Mismanagement In the New Orleans Postoffice River Improvement. COBKKSPONDKXCI OP TBE APPEAL. Washington. August 4. I Daid a visit yesterday to the rooms of the National Democratic Committee, on F street, and found great activity manifested in prepar ing for the work of the campaign. I met there a number of representative men from all over the country, and among other topics discussed was the probable loss to the next Congress of the Hon. Casey Young. His failure to announce hia self a candi date has caused general regret. He has acquired an influence and power in the House which few men have, and he owes to the people of his district and to his party not to refuse a nomi nation. Besides in this Presidential year strong and popular man ought to be selected as the candidate in the Mem phis district, and Mr. Young certainly answers these requirements. A new member, no matter how much ability he may have, must for one term at least take a back seat, and then it takes years of ser vice in the lower House to learn the rules and modu operandi of that body. Mr. xoung has been here long enough to familiarize hiineelf with these, and his in fluence and reputation is such that he not only commands the attention of the House, but exerts an influence ennalad by but few members. The r oathern States held control of the government for forty years previous to 1861, by keeping in Con gress tried and true men, and history will repeat itself when the same means are used. The disaster at the United States Hotel last night has shocked the whole com munity, and the Dtstrict Commissioners will be forced by public sentiment to give more attention hereafter to the safety of buildings. ibe summer so far. on the whole, has been delightful here, only a few uncom- tortaoiy not days, and no hot nights oc curring. SHELBY. RIVER IMPROVEMENT. Operation on the HiuliMlppI Ittwen ine von anu Illinois Ml vera. Washington. August 7. Mai. Ernst. corps of engineers, in charge of the im provement ot tbe Mississippi between the Illinois and Ohio rivers, and other minor imorovements, has made his annual report. The original esti mated cost of the improvement, as revised in 1883, was $16,997,100. The aggregate amount appropriated to July 5, 1884, is $3,364,600. There is avail able for the present fiscal year $525,354, and an appropriation of $1,000,000 is asked lor the nscal year ending J une 60, lt&ti. It is proposed to expend the appropria tion in carrying out the plan heretofore adopted. This is to first improve that partot the river below ct. ixuis, to make the improvement continuous, beginning at St. Louis and workin down stream, reclaiming land and building np new i-anks, and reducing the river to an ap proximately uniform width of about 2500 feet. Alluvial banks are to be protected from erosion. It is proposed by this means to secure a channel with a depth of at least eight faet at the lowest stage. The depth is now liable to become four feet, and even less, in some places, and lees than eight feet in every place where the wiUtH. U greater than 2500 feet. The changeable character of the river. Maj. Ernst says, renders tt Impracticable to give in advance the exact localities where works will be required. Relative to the work the past year Maj. Ernst rays: "The funds available during the year were not sufficient in amount to justify un dertaking any new woik or even to prosecute successtnlly all those which bad already been inaugurated. They were applied, aa f ar as possible, to such works aa were in urgent need of repair and ex tension to prevent the loss .of a part of the results previously obtained." An appro priation of $41,820 is asked for the im provement of the Mississippi at uape Girardeau, and $-3000 for the removal of snags in Usage river, mo appropriations are recommended lit the improvement of the Mississippi opposite St. Louis, nor for the river or harbor at Alton, in. THE NEW ORLEANS POSTOFFICE. Iroaa Wealeet n nTlMnnnnjremeat of AWalra, Willi Stale Thievery. Wasbihotom, August 7. The special commission which has been investigating the condition and management ot tbe New Orleans postoffice, submitted their report to the Postmastor-uenerat to-day. The commissioners say, in their report, that they found the facilities of the office ample, but the force employed inefficient through I act of proper training, organisa tion or discipline, which, they say, does not exist in the office, nor dees any sys tem of promotion, based upon individual merit, and they add tnat they lound everv thing arranged apparently more for the personal convenience of the clerks than for the necessities of business. They say the postmaster possesses but a limited knowledge of the actual work of the otlice' and makes little or no effort to inform himself of the necessities of the service, rarely visiting the working floor, and sel dom' consulting with his subordinates; also that, while too much ought not to be expected of the assistant postmaster, in View of his comparatively recent ap pointment, yet they feel constrained to say that his .".election for the place was nnvkise because of his inferior judgment, lack ot discretion rnd inability to main tain discipline, 'lhey further say that they found the mailing division without organization or discipline, mail matter, es pecially newspapers, being badly handled and delayed ; that no account liad been kept of mail sacks, whi h latter in many ae8 were being unlawfully used by per sons other tnan employes, they the com missioners, having found fourteen of them in junk shops and others used as cotton packages or made into hammocks. They express the ooinion that the want of econ omy on the part ot the chiet ot this divi' sion is in part owing to the failure of his superior to support him. They say also that the office of collection lerk. with alary of $900, has been held for soma time nasi by ueorge w. Merchant, son bf the ptoiasier, who has rendered very having been done hv the cashier, and tnev aaa tuai mm nffira, ia ontimlv nnnecessarv and should be aboljshpd. they report having found an employe cat ned on tno rgiis as a por tor rintjiilnd aa a defective, who iendere.1 no service himself, but who had hired an old colored man at 8 per month to do a little sweeping, that being the service which called for the employment ol por ter, and they recommend tat this office, aa well as that of chief poiter. be abolish !. Thev also recommend that the title of the omcial now known as secretary and auditor be changed to ot&tial secretary and the salary of the office bo reduced from $1500 to $1200 per annum. They rfcounmend increases in the salaries of certain clerks aggregating $1100 per annuii, and reductions aggregating $2450. They also report having made in dairies relative to depredations on mail at this office and the failure of the post master to report them, and sav, with re' sixtut tc this branch of their investigations that it was .toumj. just before their visit that fifteen letters, addrease to M. A. Dauphin, had been abstracted from th mails in the office; that the circumstances 'binid almost conclusively to the son' of ,Ue postmaster u the 'person who stole them ; thaf when the facta Wire reported to the postmaster he obtained poMeastou of and burned certain fragments of the missing letters, hereby destroying im nortunt evidence against the guilty per son, but he afterward promised toecliido hjs son permanently from the office. SUICIDE ISCPXGRESS. Senator and Bepreeentaltte Who Mate Died by 1 heir 4wn Hands. Washington. August 6. Congressman Culbertson, of Kentucky, who attempted suicide a week ago, and has been the sub ject of so much comment, is on the high road to recovery. He will soon be in Ken tucky looking after his iron manufacturing interests, which are quite large. Mr. Cul berson's rash act recalls some interesting incidents of that nature among men who have preceded him in the House or Sen ate. . One of the most prominent of these was the suicide of the Hon. Preston King, who fo' many years represented the State of New York in the Senate of the United States. He was a large man in figure and heart ; a sort of David Davis, in person at least, and like most of men of large weight, was tender-hearted and sympathetic He was appointed by President Andrew John son collector of the port of New York.after his retirement from the Senate. The du ties of that office and the annoyance cf its administration, particularly the appeals for position, bore anon tbe mind of Mr. King, and one day he wai found missing. Efforts to find him were after a week suc cessful, when his body was found floating in the river, attached to which was a twenty-five pound bag of shot. Tbe tender-hearted collector, driven to desperation by the appeals of office seekers, had sought death in this manner. The suicide of so prominent a man created quite a sensation at that time, and it is well remembered by old New Yorkers in the government ser vice here yet. Another suicide of note was that of the Hon. Thomas Jefferson Rusk, of Texas, who was a member of the Senate in 1835, and who committed suicide just after his retirement from tnat body, by shooting. Whether the story of Senator Rusk's sui cide is as accurate as that of Senator King's is uncertain. It can only ; be given as gathered here, : and is not a matter - of historical record, as is the case with Senator King. Senator Rusk was very prominent in Texas, which State he represented in the Senate. He had been Secretary of War in the Republic of Texas . when it was a republir"and had held other promiaent positions there. In the early history of Texas many of its citizens were, the story goes, men who found it convenient to leave their former residences on account of incidents which law and good society did not tolerate. The story that this was the cause of Mr. Rusk's removal from South Carolina to Texas has never been verified, tnt there is a story of this sort. Anyway, be the facts what they may have been, yet it is alleged that his suicide was the result of having this sort of charge thrown against him in the Senate during a debate. His suicide was by shooting and occurred at his home in Texas Boon after leaving the Senate. A Kentuckiao, whose illustrio-'S ex ample Mr. Culbertson tried to fo' low, was Congressman Hise, who represented Ken tacky in the Thirty-ninth Congress, and had been elected to the Fortieth. He had also been United States Minister to Guate mala, and had likewise taken a prominent part in negotiating a treaty between tbe United States and Great Britain immedi ately preceding the Ciayton-Bulwer treaty. His suicide was supposed to have been the result of monomania caused by overwork. Still another Kentucky suicide was that of James L. Johnson, who was in - the Twenty-first Congress. He suicided at Owensboro, Ky., during a ut oi despond ency caused by illness. - The case of a man more prominent than any of those already mentioned was that of JUncoln s most prominent Cabinet othcer. Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. He is printed in history as having died sud denly. Old residents of Washington, However, who were here at tbe time of his death, and who were in position to know by reason of their intimacy with men prominent in public life, eay that Mr. Stanton died from an incision in the throat made by his own hand in a fit of insanity caused by overwork and the mental strain of this the most responsible position in the greatest war thU country has ever seen. i i Whether Mr. John Ewing. who renre- sented Indiana in the Twenty-third and Twenty-fifth Congresses committed sui cide, is not stated in history, but his death was at least a curious one. - lie was lound sitting in his cbair at Vincennes dead, and the following couplet freshly written lay uesiue mm : "Ilere lien man who lores hif friends, , llin God, his cuuutry and VincennM." His death occurred in 1857. Felix McConnell. of MississiDDi. was one of the most brilliant orators in the Twenty-eighth and Twenty-ninth Con gresses, but JTelix had a weakness for Duuor, so tbe story goes, and after a long spree cut his throat at the Charles Hotel in this city and died. - " - John D- -Aatuaoref - of SooIIa Oarali- I was in the Thirty-sixth Congress and was also in the Confederate army. He blew out his brains in 1871 at Sardis, Miss. . Williamson ii. W. Cobb, of Alabama, was a member of Congress from 1857 to 1861, when he withdrew on the secession of Alabama, and became a mera'-er of the Confederate Congress. His death oc curred from a pistol shot, the weapon be ing held m his own hand, though that it was intentional suicide is not certain, the supposition being that the discharge of the pistol was accidental. There have been rumors here of late that the Hon. Heister Clymer, of Penn sylvania, who, a few weeks bince, was re ported as naving laiien a victim to apo plexy, was a victim really of his own hand. This', however, has cot been confirmed. J as. tf. Lane, oi .Lawrenceburg, lnd., a son of Amos Lane, who represents that district in Cong: ess, was a senator Irom Kansas from 1861 to 1866, shot himself at his home in Kansas soon after his retire ment from the Senate Sobeisk Ross, who was in the Forty- third and Forty-fourth Congresses from Pennsylvania, suicided shortly after his return from Oongiess by shooting himself in his barn at his home in Pennsylvania. Loss of health and consequent desiiond. ency were alleged as the cause. John White, of Kentucky, who was in the Twenty-fourth. Twenty-fifth. Twenty- sixth, Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth uongresscs, and was bpeaker ot the Uouse in the Twenty seventh, and ancle of John D. White, member of the present Con gress, committed suipide at Richmond, tvy., by cutting his throat. Jesse ll. 1 nomas, who was in tbe Tenth Congress from "Indiana Territory," and who was later on a Senator from Illinois. suicided in 1850 by cutting his throat with a razor because ol mental aberration.

The Democratic Outlook In Oliio Some Talk of Serious Trouble la Hew York. John Kelly's Ultimatum He Must Have the Entire City Patronage or He Will Bolt. Saratoga, N. Y., August 5. Close ob servers here say that trouble is brewing in the Democratic camp. Kelly is report ed to have issued his ultimatum. It is to the effect that Tammany must have con trol of all New York City offices or the ticket will be bolted. Cleveland and Manning are said to be inclined to ignore Tammany and take their chances with Kelly against them. Hendricks is for conciliation, and with that end in view has had repeated inter, views with the Tammany chief. Flower also wants peace in the camp, and it is stated, with someshow of author, ity, that his mission here and at Albany was to smooth the wrinkled fronts of both factions. Ex-Gov. Hendricks talks of the prospects of the campaign with the greatest freedom. ' "I think that the ticket is daily gaining strength," he said to the United Press correspondent to-day. "Of course there are little difficulties in the State of New York, and some of them areof an unusual nature. "The laboring classes are somewhat dis satisfied and some ef Kelly's friends are sore, but they are all Democrats and they will be all right before election day. "The Governor seems to be annoyed still about tbe Buffalo scandal. Without being questioned on the subject, he said to me: " 'As to the Buffalo scandal, I think it is a disgrace for any man to utter it It can do no harm in Cleveland. The pur poses for which it was published wi. 11 be defeated. It will add strength rather than weakness to Cleveland's canvass. Right thinking men deprecate the dragging in of such matters into a political contest. A candidate should be judged by his public record, and Cleveland's record stands high as a reformer and a man of great adminis trative skill." Mr. Hendricks's letter of .acceptance is almost completed. ' It will be brief, and will not meddle much with political prob lems. It will follow somewhat in the line of his speech to the Notification Commit tee. It may be issued on the same day that Cleveland's letter is published. The letters of Tilden and Hendricks were pro mulgated simultaneously, and Mr. Hen dricks does not believe in unnecessary de lay.fi.He wants the matter out of the way, so that he may begin the more solid work of the campaign.

A meeting of tbe Democratic State Central and Execu tive Committees held here to-night was at tended by about thirty members, t e ob ject being to get an exchange of views as ti tbe political outlook in different parts of the State, compare notes and map ont work lor the campaign, tjaite a large number of noted politicians were present. 150th committees held a briet ses. sion in which prominent Uemot crats were invited to participate- Kenorta were received from the dineren districts and the general feehng was a hopeful one. The defection r.mong the Irish and German Democrats is not as great as by many supposed, but an addi tion from the merman nepumicans is claimed. The more conservative ones ad mit that the State is not to be won except by hard work, though they state it is too early, to make any definite predictions. . Steve Klhlns and the West Vlra-lala Dua Pake. Mo., August 7. Another conference was held here to-day between Stephen B. Elkins and several leading Republicans and Oreen backers of West Virginia. Ibe number present was not as large as at last week's conference, it being understood that only those who were to have part in the management of the can vass in West Virginia should attend. The closest secrecy was observed, none of the gentlemen registering at the hotel, all being entertained at JMkins s cottage, and the meetings were held within its dcors.
