APPEAL. H JL1 4, ESTABLISHED 1640 MEMPHIS, TEiNMST., rPJEITJRSD A.Y, MAY 14, 1885.' VOL. SZLV-lSrO. 115 rim f. 1 ) Maj. Bcbke has resigned aa director general of the few Orleans Exposition. All the arrangements for tbe Louisville races to commence to-day have been com pleted, and everything points to tbe largest and most enthusiastic meeting ever held there. Tukbe was another delightful day at the Olympic Park yesterday, where the races were much enjoysd by a large numlcr of people, among whom many ladies were conspicuous. To-day's programme is a very attractive one, and ought to draw the largest attendance! yet seen there. Tils victory of the "Chicks" will not be nncttenaed with rejjret when it is recalled that the company they defeated at New Orleans is the one that was so conspicu ously friendly to them on that disas trously hot day in Mobile. No true man ever courts or covets a victory at the ex pense of his friends. The Houston Light Guards have our sympathies. But then they do noto home empty-handed. They have the Mobile laurels fairly won. The Chickasaw Guards have redeemed themselves on the firet occasion offering after their failure at Mobile. They drilled superbly yesterday at New Orleans, and it is generally conceded lull carry oil" the i5rst prize. This will be very gratifying news, not only to their immediate friends but to all classes of the people of the city. This victory reinstates the ' Chicks" in the very enviable position they have occupied for so many yeara aa the beat drilled in fantry company in the Uuited States, for they secure it over the company that was victorious at Mobile. Ths backbone of the Kiel rebellion is broken and the noted half-bree J is a fugi tive. Gen. Middleton was successful at Battouche, and there now remains for the Canadian government the work Of par doning the mUguidid rebels and doing justice by them so as to prevent their becos-ing rebels again. These poor peo ple should have their propprty restored to them and guarantees ought to be given tLi that in the future they will be amply -protend in all that they have. If Premier MacDontd shall do this he will earn abso lution for u.kzy of his sins. Oca esteemed contemporary, the Chat tanooga Timet, lashes itself into a fury over old Joe Brown's speech on divorce .before the EapiisU' convention (X Au gusta, Ga., last week. Under the influ ence of old Joe's oratory the convention did adopt his resolution, but later in the even ing, after the members had time to think, they made haste to reconsider their vote And lay the Brown resolution on the ta ble. Even a Baptist convention cannot afford to brand decent men and women with living in open adultery because they iiave married aain after being divorced for cause. Old Joe was at upon, and de servedly. Taa Mormons may, as they aes3rt .iu their petition to the President, have good ground for complaint, and may be able to make a case against the officials who are enforcing the Edmunds law, bnt they will never be able to persuade the people of the cr'untry that they dtserve any sympa thy so ii1!? as the infamous system of polygamy is ji."ticed and encouraged. It is a crime sgaindt the spirit of the age, and is odious and repugcaut as a relic of religious systems away from pinch the civilized world has long since grown. Po lygamy must go. It cannot live in these United States. Br all edda the most important event of yesterday for Memphis was the drivinz of the last spike in the Holly Springs rail 7oaL Of the interesting proceedings had on the occasion, a full report will be found in another column. They wore participated in by some of our beat people and were pervaded by a becoming enthniasm. The result of this cnickly-completed work oaght to be a large increase in our cotton receipts next year, and sales of dry goods and groceries correspond, and a growing trade thereafter. We congratulate the tontractora on the i.-y with which thsy havo prosecvited the wo.: and the manner iu which they have actoujj.Iiihed it. Now "on to Selma" &nd eventually to PensacoU. The disgraceful affair near Selma, Ala.) of which oarcorresponJent gives the par ticulars in a lengthy special else where pub lished, is much to be deplored. There must be Bnce weakness in the laws or their enforcement in a place where men are com pelled to arm to maintain their right to peace and security. That tho attempt by a ngro to outrage a white woman should be punished with death eeems to be the first cbuse of tbe unwritten code that is deemed eeaectiil to the security of white women, but, eren if that concession i3 made, it ought to bo an easy matter for the sheriff of a county to take order for the gaiety of "life, liberty and the pur suit of happiness." There must De eome t'iin wrorg in Chilton county, something radically wrocg, that ought to Le immedi ately eet nht. The law must be enforced. It mint be salens if there is to be a real and lasting peaco. I'fcu'! confl'ct yesterday between the po '.ice ana 3 large body of the workmen cf London in t De regretted, because it ii one of itany t?ch occurences within the past year. Such conaicts are to be avoid ed, if possible, because the suppression of meetings by force may 'ead to disastrous confeijaences. It ha often been ipredieted that some day the great metropolis of the world would, like Para, be given over to a mob, and that dyna mite and petroleum would in a few hours effect the ruin ever whkh Macaulay's Australian U to muse. If ever that day comes it wiii bo She result of these at tempts by the Loudon police to smother popular expression. Mae.mcetin3 are the safety-valves of communities, and so long as they do not lead to infractions of the law fchould te encouraged and net prevented. Suppression cf the popular will nieauii suppression of a great furce, that when it does riud vent, like nature's powers seeking outlet, will work mischief. The presentation yesterday by the Amer ican residents of IVris of a copy of the Bartholdi statue, coon to be erected in New York harbor, to the French people, was a notable event, and it Li to be hoped will strengthen the bonds thai have bound the two natioi s together ever since this va called into existence. Ko Aniercan worthy of the name can ever forget the aid and assistaCB France lent the struggling colonies In mCu an'l materia', as well as by its prompt reccgC'1'011 ' t5lfi "ew na tion. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Franca was ftat friend in '76, and in these later cVrJ's she makes the continuation oi that tru.z.1 ship plain by setting up a statue of liberty in our finest harbor, a atatne that , rivals the monnmental iKviathans thai in ' the i.gvp!ian ceteris which liie Ki:entsen- tinels by the remains oi buried Memphis. The ceremouiia in l aria yesterday Dy the American colony were becoming and timely, but they w ere only the precusor of greater thinsra to come when tlO.OilO.Ol.K) of free aud united people shall celebrate the couipii lion of the great statue in the place appcin'.ed for it and send gnietitg to their brother republicans acroea tbe sea and their hopes that France may remain t ie home of liberty afld an example to ail tue nations of Europe, growing more and more democratic every year and more and jnore prosperous.

Two compa nies drilled to-day in the leading infantry contest the Chicks and the Houston Light Guards. The balance and the artil lery drill to-morrow. We are not iikly to knew results before Friday afternoon. The Chicks were great favorites. A number of Memphis gentlemen were at the camp just before the drill. They and the mem bers of the company were happy and hopeful. When the drill commenced, at 3 o'clock in the atternoon, Capt Carnea was feeling well, and all the members of the old team except Wat Ciapp and Tom Wright were ready. The company marched on the drill ground with tbe hearty applause of the large crowd. They got through with the programme in one hour. Every movement was applauded. No company errors were made, bnt there were a number of individual errors. At the conclusion everyone felt certain that the Chicks were winners. The Houston company then came on, drilled in excellent style and in about the came-time as the Chicks. They were en thusiastically applauded. The Zwesville Guards, who were to drill next, had withdrawn. The Mobile and Louisville companies will drill to-morrow. Tae opinion now prevailing may be de cribe 1 in a few words. The friends of the .thicks are confident. The followers of the Houston company are very hopeful. The errors of the lieutenant of the Hons lona are likely to lose first place for that company. Associated frens airport. New Orleans, May 13. The second day of the Exposition interstate drill opened with the inspection of rural com panies. The St. Mary Volunteers was the only entry, the Iberia Guards having withdrawn. Then followed the inspection of first-class companies, in the following order: Chickasa Guards, Houston Light Guards, Janesviiie Guards, Company F, Louisville Legion ; Mobile Rifles and Sa vannah Cadets. The drilling waa begun at 1 :30 o'clock p.m. by the St. Mary Vol unteers. They made a fair showing, the first of the crack compa nies to appear on the drill-ground was the Cnickasaw Guards, who were greeted warmly by the large crowd pres ent Their drill was almost perfect, with the exception of some individual errors. In stacking arms one stack fell, and dur ing the execution of one of the double quick orders two men slipped and fell, but resumed their places immediately. Their drill lasted fifty-five minutes, and they left the neii amid great applause. They were j0wed by the Houston Light Guards, who were "'Ten a rasc heartier recep tion.

They went throntjh the ovolution of the drill programme in fifty ni'iutes, and lifter being drawn np in line before the grand stand, left the ground amid tremendous applause. The Janes ville Guard, who were to have drilled next, withdrew from the contest.

The twen tieth annual session of the Mississippi Press Association convened here to-day at 12 o'clock with eighty members present, representing fifty-seven papers. The meet ing was held in the spacious court-room, which had been beautifully and artistical ly decorated for the occasion by the ladies. The association was called to order by the president, the Hon. J. J. Shannon, of the Meridian Mercury, and the session opened with prayer by the Key, H. M. kfydea- Strieker, pastor of the Presbyterian church here. Capt W. A. Herring, the mayor, in a cordial, chaste and eloquent addrees wel comed the press. This address was re plete with interest to all the visitor to the city, wherein it showed the wondrous growth, public spirit, enterprise and sur prising material wealth of the place, of which the State at large has heretofore been comparatively in ignorance. He showed the place to riva', if it does not excel, any town in the State in the various industrial pursuits, with manufacturing enterprises new to many parts of the South, while it is deprived of the local advantages of iron and coal, that the first cast plow factory was established here before they bad a railroad faiily established Now foundries and machine shops make iron and steel plows, hollow war-?, cotton gins, planta tion and mill machinery, aud steam en gines; that here the cotton-mills convert into yarn 1-00 bales of cotton annually; that the railroad shops here furnish hun dreds of milea of track wi h locomotives and cars and repairs to machinery ; that the rst locomotive built in Mississippi was built here in 1S7S, since when over forty locomotives have been built, not only for this line, but for other lines iu the State and for other States; this, to, without the immigration of capitalists or money from abroad, but by local capital and the strong arms and nerves of its in domitable citizens, who now number over 4000. He showed the city to have made equal progress in intellectual culture, showing that there exists here the best and most efficient system of public schools that can be found in the State, for both races, there being a school of some 400 scholars in prosperous organization and conduct The pres by general verdict, bears testimony to the intelligence, cult ore and generous hospitality of the good citizens of Water Valley. Mr. J. H. Anderson, of the Kosciusko Star, on behalf of the cress, responded to the welcome in a speech eloquent and beautiful in diction and in terms appro priate. The secretary, J. K. Almon, of tbe West Point iVeiff Era, was at his post and called the roll and collected the annual dues. President Shannon then delivered his address, reviewing the workincs, growth and usefulness of the association from its organization,and making many wholesome suggestions as to the proper mode of con ducting a newspaper. There were presented and read invita tions to visit the State University at Ox ford, the World's Exposition and tbe va rious public places of interest in this city, all of which were accepted, and the asso ciation will leave here in a bodv Friday morning for Oxford, thence at 4 o'clock on same day for New Orleans. The annual literary programme of the press will be carried out to-night. To morrow night the association will be enter tained by the citizens at a grand banquet. A telegram was received and read from Senator Walthall acknowledging the receipt of an invitation to be present and express ing his regrets at his inability to arti-nd. E. H.

Considerable trouble and excitement is railing near Dixie, in Chilton county, a few miles north of this city. The nniortunate matter was precip itated by the lieudish conduct ot Sam Atchison, a young negro, who attacked and brutally outraged Mrs. Nelsler, in the neighborhood of Dixie, a few days ago. A band of armed white men went to the house of the rapist and ordered him to go belora tbe outraeed ladv to be identified. Sam relused to go, barricaded himself in bio oua aDQ armed himself with a shot miT h' snally bullied the white men, numbering twenty, iw artueu, suu or dered them .0 march be.CT. and in ttiat way went to Mrs. Neisler's nousfl. ne bold negro ecoundrel told Mrs. Nelsler 1: sneBaid he was the gmlty one uhe lied ana he would kill her. She was frightt-ned and aaid he was not tLe xrailr v man. When the rapist was gone she said tUht boyund nuestion be was the same negro wno as saulted her. A second a'tempt was made to arrest Atchison, a warrant of arrest having been issued, hut ho m4un gioa nis escape, hotly pursued by a large nuoicw-r of white men. Scipio Atchisou, faiher f the negro rapist, .wi re vengeance snair.9t all who had taxen part in the effort to bring his son to just puniBhn-;nt. He continued to make ihrecta tr pevfr.ii days, saying: "Ihe d d rebs ha 1 beUer keen cool and save their Ecaip?." The country is thicklv settled bv laboring men of both racss, who rind proti atiie emply- meut at the saw-n.iila and ptttilif coau.-u worke. On Saturday evening oi last weei Scipho AtchiHHi, father cf tjie ravisher, wpnt to trie home ot viinui i.o(gi3, white mm, and told him if he valued tuo life of himself and faini'y he had bet ter move frojri tiie neighborhood imme diately; that the agrees h d stood rough treatment long enough; that n band cf negroes, awnd to the leelb, ivHiut to attack tin white settlement ami scalp men, women and children.

Tom Ward, a'so colored, is missing, nnd his whereabouts are b' ill unknown. Who it was tbat killea Scipio Atchison will probably never be known definitely.

It is said that Russia ac cepts the convention. condie Stephens's report. Condie Stephens, the bearer of dispatches from Sir Peter Lumsden to the govern ment, eays: The British Commission started for Tirpnl directly after the Penj deh battle. Reaching the Parapanisue mountains a terrific snow-storm rendered progress alow. Many camp followers were lost. The defeated Afghans retreated by another route via Maruchak and Bala- Murghab. The Penjdeh Valley is a most fertile oasis and a lovely country with splendid pasture lands. In spring time the ground is literally carpeted with flow ers. Dr. Aitcheson, the botanical expert, waa delighted. He made a valuable col lection of flowers. The valley abounds in game. The Murghab abounds in water fowl, and the bills are stocked with ga zelle, antelope, wild sheep and pigs. The Afghans were always kind and attentive to the wants ot the commission, and did their utmost to provide them with food and comtorta, though the task was a diffi cult one, the country being uninhabited. Ihe party saw ruins of numerous ancient towns. When Mr. StephenB left the com mission all the members of it were in good health and spirita. THE FEELING IX EL SSI A. Later Dliipatcneii from Gen. liomarotiT AteicaruiMK tne renjaea AB.ir. St. Peteibceo. May 13. Gen. Koma- rofl's latest dispatches regarding the col lision between the Russians and Afghans near Penjdeh reiterate with fuller details his earlier accounts of the affair. He says the A'ghans sent a taunting message to the KussianB. declaring tbat they would thrash the Russians as they had thrashed the English." Tbe Afghans, Gen. Koma roif again insists, fired the first shots, and bo were responsible for bringing on the engagement. Gen. Komarotf sayg he learned Irom prisoners who were captured in the battle that the Afghan leaders had ordered the Sariks to furnish a contin gent of 1000 men to the Afghan army. The time which had been allowed the Sariks to determine whether they would comply with this order expired on the very day the battle occurred, and an avowal from them was expected by the Afghans on that day. The effect produced bv the Russian Buccesa on the minds of the neighboring people was bo great that, directly after the battle, the Sarik and Er sarik Turcomans offered their allegiance to Russia. A few days after the battle, nan.ely, on the 7th of April, Gen. Koma roff says he wrote to Taib Salar, the Af ghan commander at Penjdeh, that he had no further animosities against the Afghans. rUKK-PACKISG. Considerable RMlaetlon In the Knmber of Hoxn Handled.

They establish club-roome, where members may enjoy social intercourse and pieasant companionship free from the influences of saloons, to which so many resort merely for ths want of better places. Opportunities for instruction are provided through reading-rooms, circulating libra ries, evening classes, debates, lectures, reading, and the like, while amusement is furnished in the shape of chess, checkers, billiards, bowling, excursion?, Amateur theatricals, concerts, etc. Benefit socie ties, which furnish medicines, medical at tendance, and pecuniary assistance in cases of sickness or death; legal aid societies, which afford protection from extortion and oppression, and trade discounts and coal funds, wnich pro vide tbe staples of life of good quality and at reduced rates, are organized in clubs. Habits of thrift and saving are encouraged by the establishment of co-operative sav ings banks, building and loan associations, etc, which aid the workingmen to save systematically and to buy their own homes. Self-help and temperance are tbe two great objects of every workingmen's olub, Workingmen's clubs sre comparatively new in this country, bnt in Great Britain there are now 1000 such organic itions, with a total meaiberthip of over 109,000. The history of these clubs proves that there is a great reed fjr such organiza tions among workingmen ; that working men are quick to appreciate the advantages which these clubs oiler after having once experienced them; tbat these clubs, when once established, are, as a rule, self-ons-taining, and that they are tbe most effect ive means yet dev. Bed for raising the in telligence and improving the condition of the working people. It is for men of means, capitalists and land-owners, and particularly employers of labor, to show the working people how much they can do for themselves through these clubs and institutes, and then to give influence and support in bringing about their es tablishment. It is the object of the congress to pro mote me establishment ot these associa tions, and information as to their organ ization and management wid he furnished on application to John a.
