S 1 1 l;l : : : : : : : :Jl E C, lSi tl AUlTIM: it M tlUlfVN, Now the ihcrmoiucior fcs rihed h nineties very natural, y tae j-Oiue are W F'.nciag to ttinV of sanitary matters. Only it'Tetul vigilance can ward off the tomiiiunicaticii to this country of epi demic already prevailing at the Isthmus nd elsewhere. A toleeram published in the Apfeal yesterday stated that Ad miral J ouctt, in an official report to the ?avy Department from the Isthmus, re ported: "Yellow-fever now seems liable to become epidemic at any time, as there have been a number of fatal cases among the marines. I am iuformed by aboard .f surceocs appointed to investigate tbo matter, that ihere are now three vessels iu the harbor of CoIod all with numerous eases oi yel low lever, and that the disease is also prevalent in the cities ot Aspinwall and l'anama." One day this week we asked ;i fruit seller on Main street where a fine lot of bananas he had was from, and the reply was: "From the Isthmus," It is no more than prudent, therefore, that Memphis should have its attention turned to the subject of preventive tneasnres. Such measures are of ex treme importance, for yellow-fever does ?iot originate in this country, and when it breaks out it is by communication trom countries outside of and south of itself. As the fever, when it has pre vailed, has commonly reached the United .States by way of New Orleans, attention is naturally turned toward that city, and inquiries are made as to what preventive measures that city is taking to avert the entrance of epidemic. Because, in former times- tliat city used to show nmre aniiety to preserve its trade than it. health, there is much anxiety in this inquiry. At the present time this anxiety is increased, owing to he fact that this season that city will adopt a sj-stem of quarantine in some respects differing from the one that has been pursued of late years. Of the na ture of the changed system the Appeal gave a statement a little time since; it has had the approvil of the Board ot Health of New Orleans and others, and they declare it to be amply sufficient to 'secure freedom from infection, while less oppressive to the shipping subject to its operation. That in aDy change, wher the interest involved is so important, there should be inquiry and investigation is natural, but there is some displeasure manifested in New Orleans because there is watchfulness upon the subject. As long as the anxiety manifested assumes no of fensive tone, it is entitled to respect, and to such explanations as may be required. Where the death of friends and business losses of a most important character are concerned, there very properly exist ttrong susceptibilities among the cities that are in continual communication with New Orleans. The S'l f, of that city reports that the State Board of Health met there oa Tuesday last, in conse quence of a communication from the Texas health officer protesting against the quarantine chantre. We are sorry to observe a tone of irritation in the account the St-ttrs gives. It says: "It is not to be supposed that either Galveston or Jlemphis, rival towns, that can only flourish at the expense of New Orleans, would look with indiltercnce upon any measure that was calculated to put them at a disadvantage, in a commercial point of view, by preserving to New Orleans its summer trade and relieving it from the burdens that its com merce has suffered from through an unprogrcssive and unenlightened system of quarantine, that has proved so disastrous to the business interests of New Orleans, diverting our legitimate trade from us, and driving it to Galves ton, Memphis and St. Louis." The president of the New Orleans board, Dr. iloit, in his reply to the lexas protest, which, the St'tt declares, "voicc3 the sentiment of the people of this city" (New Orleans), says: "We formally enter our protest against locking up the port of New Orleans in order that the trade relations of Texas may prosper I. ins is tne essential suostance ot our ditierence, and it must stop, even if it has to be done by interrupting the very . pleasant relations that now exist between Louisiana and this State' relations de lightfully pleasant so long as New Or lens starves her children and fattens her neighbors." The Slut' com plains "that New Orleans should thus be assailed, simultaneously, by our neigh bors of Galveston and Memphis," and pronounces the object to be to create prejudice against New Orleans and spread unnecessary a'arui, and it expects to see it declared that New Orleans has aban doned quarantine and is exposed to the most fatal epidemics. It adds: "By such false and slanderous reports the fears of the country may be aroused, and Mem phis and Galveston will pro6t by this blight put upon New Orleans by its mis chievous and jealous enemies." We wish to treat our contemporary. New Orleans, mnd its Board of Health, respectfully and considerately, and we are only acting in a friendly spirit toward them when we ay frankly this tone and temper will cot do. It is too much in the style of pist days, which they should all de sire to be buried in oblivion. Mem phis and other places are told by im plication that they have no regard for life, no memory of dying beds, no recol lection of past bitter sorrows, no tears when they think of the gaps left at their own firesides, all that is cared for is gain, all there is anxiety about is the lucre that can be transferred from others by ommunities that plead past woes only to caver present covetousness. This is as ungenerous as it is unjust, and the world will so recognize it. It is not Galveston, BJt St. Louis, not Memphis that will be injured by such unworthy imputation, but New Orleans, for such a tone is a re flection upon ta press, its officials and its people. Thousands of the citizens of the South and the West have recently v'mitod New Orleans, and they have ob- . serve! fer themselves, and if protests are made they come no mere from ignorance than from a people's petty calculations to build up their own prosperity by the ruin of their neighbor. We speak without anger, for our regard for the people of New Orleans incites to forbearance, nnd we call upon tbeui also to forbear. Their responsibility in case of ej)idemie is great, they cannot avoid the burden, it is the prico they have to pay for the pros perity and preatnes that is within their - rsp, A CHAXGK COMING We observe among our contemporaries indications of curiosity as to how it can be that while the New York bauks alone have a surplus of $;i,OUO.lH boyond thoir compulsory reserve, thoro should be such a scarcity of employuiout, and no much enforced eoouoniy and dowurijtht poverty, in the country. Capital brings uo profit, enortry fiuds no room lor e user prise, and the toiU-r h scaut wrk auj his not too abundaul .vj r cut dw. Yet the country is ru-h, uuuiey owrttow and tht banks ar stitd with thi nop ply of it. What lii at the tvliom vl it U? uiy are bow akiu, aud if thy will ctttttittue u A, m.1 it tttd a lull and wuiph-te t vviuo, th hrd time will W richly wth all thv are vsvtsts, Uy the i;u reN of ttiaoUtnery ud cd' the u'.Mf do ior,i that ixvuuitj has wtrwhuvd productive picr- has vast!; Ku-rvAxfd, M'hile the demand torprodurts tu ieoTos-d only in raiio with the in crv4o ot imputation. In the main brioche v. osa produce nsore than there is d;'sv,ud tor. Our Urnicr and our me chanic od laborers, sided by the won aer-wornU'.g power ot machinery, can in eUht to nine months product sufficient to supply the wants of a whole year. W decrease wages and increase the hours of labor because there are more products than there is demand for, and those measures increase a supply already too lar je, while the decreased income of the whole toiling class decreases still more the demand. The Vast produce makes the country wealthy with large posses sions, but what is the advantage of hav ing a wealth of goods we cannot sell, and of products nobody demands? At this pass we are approaching a dead lock, getting toward the extremity of a eul-Je-tiic from which there is no exit. That such is the case is proved by the numerous contradictions that have arisen. .Banks are earning little because the money, which is their stock in trade, is so plentiful that it lies in the bank ratill earning nothing. At the w.tsa time people are wearing shabby coats and often goine hungry Tor want of some of the iiiimense millions their owners want to see employed. The shoe dealer is ruined because he cannot sell, and the poor are shoeless because they cannot buy. This sort of contradiction, this suffering because of too much and dying of want from too little, is going on all around us. Society is like two men : one with a bag bursting with its full-' ness, under the weijrht of which he stag gers exhausted; while the other with imploring eyes holds out an empty bag, staggering also because hi big has noth ing in it and h? too is exhausted. Yet the man trith the full bag cannot empty out, any of his burden, and the other can get nothing of the superabundance that is such a burden to his neighbor. So they stand year after year, one wondering why he cannot get the food and clothiDg he requires, the other in misery because he cannot be relieved of the stocks of food and clothing that area burden and a loss to him. So these two stsnd to-day will theyelways stand so? Will they never find how to fill the empty bag from the one that is over full? Why cannot the two find that the whole difficulty is one of distribution, that the trouble is we can produce wealth, but we have not learned how to distribute it? If ten men cn a solitary island would raise food enough by laboriously turningthc ground with sticks, give them horses and plows, and, if they worked as long and as in dustriously as before, they would pro duce more than they could consume. If they sold the surplus, how would that mend the matter, if all they could do with the money was to let it lie idle in the bank? Those who can reason out the condition of the men with the bags, and of the wheat-growers, will see that society has arrived at a point of produc tion for which the old modes of distribu tion are insufficient. In short, the world is on the eve of an impending social change. TEXIMMEI IGKOBAXCE. O, Jerusalem! Jerusalem! thou that slaycst the prophets al killest those who are sent to thee, I would have gath ered you as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you tcouhl not! Such is the cry of divine pity that came to our mind as we read the refusal of the legislators of Tennessee to increase the tax for education. Taxes for jobs, junk etings and extra legislative sessions, but for a sufficient education tor the sons and daughters of Tennessee, not a grain of mustard-seed shall be added to the shabby, mean pittance that is now cast at them rather than to" you. l'ocr teachers! that have labored to gain and now devote yourselves to teach, go unrewarded and unhonored, the Legislature of Tennessee has no power to estimate your worth, and is destitute of the soul that should reward your holy toil. Dear youth of Tennessee, born under a bright clime and in a heaven-blessed land, how fair and sweet you are as your chatter and delicious laughter floats on the breeze. God has given you brains as He has given you beauty and grace, but the legislator of Tennessee, as reflective as the ox that drags his pl6, will not per mit those brains to be cultured so that you might became men of reasoning and women of thought, equipped by knowl edge to make your way in the battle of life. Dear little ones, such equipment may not be your fat. The legislators of Tennessee will that, like the ox that might be doing their thinking for them, you must go forth cursed by the stamp of ignorance, toiling for a bare subsistence, an unlettered prey to the designing and the base. And you, sweet daughters of this fair State, the State's Legislators doom you to mcot the guile and the vice of the world, uninformed and unshielded. Go, toil, suffer, and die, and leave a world where ignornace was provided as your portion by the Legislature of Tennessee. Legislators of Tennessee, how in the presence of the God you are responsible to, dure you pass seetence of "ignorance" upon these innocent ones? They have not harmed yon, tbey have not offended you, yet you have spurned the appeal of these little ones for knowledge, for the weapons by which to conquer a hard world. You want your State to flourish. Is not the State the men and women that are in it Blast them with the hateful darkness of ignorance, and how shall your State pros per? Do men gather grapes of thistles? If your house be left -unto you desolate, remember that knowledge would have gathered those within it and pointed them to the Infinite.

M., Juno S.- -The week has been one ot unexampled bus Pene and terror here. Never have the Indians on their bloody raids come So near the city. The first news ot the proximity of the Indians was received on Wednesday of last week, when a boy riclinc a horse white with loam dashed into town trom Welty's ranch, on Bear creek. He brought word that hostile Indians were in the hills, that an attack on the ranch, in wmcn were gainerea many women and children, was expected and that help was needed. A volunteer company of thirty-five men was organized and weut to the rescue. All the families within a radius of seven miles were col lcetcd there except one. A party set off to bring them in, while two other parties started for a water hole m the hills where thev pxnected to find the Indians, who hnwAVpr. had fled. Returning to the ranch, a larger party was organized to go to Juniper Springs, but the Indians had fled from that spot also. Scouts spent tsa hours in searching for the trail, which led to Little Walnut creek, Along this stream the most HORRIBLE SIGHTS WEBB WITNESSED. Dead bodies, frightfully mutilated and naked, were found at short intervals, The houses were pillaged, and clothing and household articles were scattered arrwhpr At William Oeden's five dead bodies, all scalped, lay in a pool of hlrmd The two women had been out ra?ed and their breasts cut off. A five rear-old eirl had both hand" -' rt Following the t"'1,, Jiis Gomez raeCu was reached. A number of chil dren were gathered there. They had es caped death by hiding. Their parents, living in the vicinity, had all been killed. Six miles further on, at the house ot Felix Marquese, five dead bodies were found. Mrs. Marquese and her seven-year-old daughter had both, suffered at the hands, of the Ipdjins before being killed. Their bodies were slashed with knives, and presented a sickening spec tacle. ONE OF THE HEROIC DEEDS that occur on such occasions v as per formed by little Willie Carpenter. The parents were some distance from the house when the Indians appeared. Willie and his sister were playing in the yard. The boy caught up his little sister and slipped into the weeds. He crawled a long distance, and finally reached this city, having carried his sister five mi'es on his back. " The parents were wild with joy to find their children, whom they supposed the Indians had carried off. The boy who brought the news to town had a narrow escape. At one time he found himself within a few hundred yards of the Indians. , He dismounted and hid in a pond of water among the weeds for nearly an hour until they had passed. Then he again mounted and rode in. A miner named Clarke was working Wednesday on a mine not far trom Juniper Springs. He had just set off a blast and rushed up the hill to avoid the falling rock. On reaching the top he saw the Indians between him and his camp. He Btarted for Little Walnut creek and warned all the ranchmen, who moved their families up to Stewart's ranche. If it had not been for this man every man, woman and child in the vicin ity would have been murdered. More Indian Ontraces. Demi.ng, N. M., June 5. The Indians who passed Duncan Station yesterday stole twenty horses and k Ued a man named Woods. A band of Indians passed this morning near Hudson Station going South. The telegraph operator says they were go in? as fast as their pouies could ran. Whether there were two bands of hostiles or hostiles pursued by Indians we could not determine. The line of the Southern Pacific railroad is now thoroughly guarded to prevent any more Indians crossing into Mexico. It is impossible to get information as to the number, as they have scattered into par ties of two to six. Advices From Uen. Crook. San Francisco, June 5.

Later Advices from the Yale of Cashmere Indicate that the Recent Earth quakes Were Even More Disastrous Than at First Re portedWhole Cities and Towns Iald to be Destroyed. Mr. Gladstone's roller Outlined la the Hottse of Commons Order of Bnsl Bess Foreign. Miscellany. London, June 5. An official dispatch from Serinaeur eives the number of the killed and wounded by the earthquake there on Sunday and Monday last as fol lows: Killed, eighty-seven; wounded, 100. The official reports have not been received yet from the other points in the vale ot Cashmere affected by the earth quake shocks, and until these come to hand tho full extent of the calamity can not be known. Unofficial reports, however, are of such an alarminir character as to make it more than likelv that the earthnuake will prove even more disastrous in its effect than the first dispatches stated them to be. W hole cities and towns in the vale are spoken of as destroyed, and the ab sence of definite news is attributed to the demolition of the telegraph lines in the general wreck and chaos. In conse quence, the magnitude of the calamity and the numbers of the killed and wounded are left for the imagination to supply. THE BKI riSu"pARUAMEST.

Fifty Thousand Dollars Stolen In One Year by an Idaho Postmaster by Means of Fictitious Postofllce Money Orders The Mod as Operandi by Which the Swin dle wirt Ferpretrated. Portland, Ore., June 5. The Orr- fonian't Lewiston (Idaho) special says: saao Hibbs was appointed postmaster at Lewiston, in March, JKS4. Last January a registered mail rioticji was robbed. An official investigation developed, nothing, and the affair was eventually forgotten. On May 2d last Hibbs left for an aHepcd silver mine on the upper Columbia. The postal inspector, alarmed at his continueu absence, investigated the affairs oi the office, and found Hibbs had written re ceipts for a large number of registered mail packages destined for fictitious names In different postofficcs supplied from Lewiston. Tbe nwdlit bpimvdi was as follows : Lewiston is a mail dis tributing point for a large number of offices in Northern Idaho. and Eastern Washington. Hibbs would IBSCB A MONEY ORDER FOR A FICTITIOUS HAME at those offices drawn in favor of a bans. in Iowa where orders were payable. Ihe customary letter of advice was forwarded to the paying postmaster. He then wrote to the banks that he Would shortly visit the town; and inclosed a money order and requested the banks to cash them 3 .1 . i ii li ir. ana place tne amount to nis crcait on deposit until he arrived. Later he wrote the bank that he could not make the contemplated visit, and requested that a draft tor tbe amount ot money on deposit be returned by registered mail to a ficti tious name attached to the money orders, and always at some office where tbe mail passed through Dewiston. Ihe dratt arrived by registered mail. Hibbs signed fictitious names and returned the receipt cards, and the transaction was completed. Money orders are limited to i00 in favor ot one person, but with forethought and Judicious distribution of dates and places an opening oDers through which unscru pulous POSTMASTERS COULD BANKRUPT lKt UNITED STATES.

Several manufacturers claim that their workmen have signified a willingness to join a movement of this kind. If enough men can be secured to start the mills in the other departments the sheet-mills will be allowed to remain idle. No definite conclusion was reached yesterday.
