FRIDAY, t : t FEU. 12, IS SO.
Oar exchange papers from all parti
of the Union are, at intervals, diecus-
Bing the subject of projtreu in the
South, the advantages it offers for the
investment of capitil, and the great
prospects of future prosperity thnt
hann over it. The lion. Carroll D.
Wright, an eminent authority in the
East, in recent address npon "The
Future of the Industries of Maw
chnsetts," was of course led by his
subject to spent of the South, from
which that But) receives the cotton it
mtnutactnres. He said that the
South is developing her industries to
an extent great ar than ever before;
she is stopping out into a progress
such as she had never known, and it
will be to the advantage of New Kog
land that the induct-y ol the South is
rapid, great nnd grand, and it is for its
interest to see that the South has
favorable opportunity for the indus
trial development of its taw material
Its immeiiBo resources of coal, iron
timber and fabrics. Bui, continued the
eloquent gentleman, some of the coars
er industries of New England will go
to the South, that is logical and
inevitable, and so threatened the East
must be determined to occupy toward
the rest of the United States the rok
tion that Great Britain and Belgium
have occupied with relation to us
New England must produce all the
finer grades of goods that are now inv
ported. Such words as these, coming
from the once foolishly despised New
England, from the lips of an able and
accomplished "Yankee'ought to have
an Inspiring effect upon every resident
of the South. Burns prayed "Oh, that
Ood the gift would gieuitisee our
eels as it hers see us," and the South.
may pray for tho same thing though in
ajliffereut sense from Burns. Could
they so see themselves and the grand
advantages they hold, they would
never fail to push on, ever confident
and enterprising. God has given us a
lair land and unsurpassed goppoituni
ties; if failure and disappointment
could come, the fault would be in the
fainting hearts and apathetic indiffer
ence of the Southern people, not the
want of a glorioua domain and a de
lightful clime, to which every year is
adding more and more brilliant oppor
tunities for success and prosperity.
Elsewhere in the Appeal will be
Ijund a very sensible and interesting
communication from Col. Sum Ta'e,
giving his estimate of last year's cot
ton crop. Col. Tate has been au ex
tensive planter in Arkansas far ten
years; bai a clear head, a judgment
ulmoit unerring, ad his eati
male hi worthy cf tho high
est consideration, fortified ns it
is by the inexorable logio of facts
and figures. However much com
mercial nun, and especially those who
deal in cotton and have studied the
crop of 1885, may disagree with Col.
Tate, they will respect the opiuions
eniBDtiting from one of the clearest
intellect of the South, and tlways
first and forejnojt, bright and lucid in
the discussion of everything that con
cerns the material interests of the
Southern people. For several years
Col. Tate's sufferings on account of
physical infirmities have been
eevere, but his mind is as ttrong
and vigorous hi ever, and in dis
cussing commeicial problems to be
eolved, it blazes out like the evening
un surrounded by storm-clouds.
Col. Tate bears his bodily a mictions
like the philosopher he is, and feels
tint a man should not regret anything
after he has built liis own monument.
Ha has uprcured his by forty years'
devotion to the interests of Memphis.
Years ago, when Memphis took its first
:art in the race to greatness, he im
remed his vigorous personality on
every public enterprise. The Mem
phis and Charleston railroad, to which
be gave such unswerving loyalty as its I
president, had in him an aggressive
leader, the ablest railrciil manager of
the South in his time. The position
he occupied oflered ideal opportunities
for achieving grand results, and the
mill's he achieved justified the un
paralleled conflJence reposed in him
by the stockholders. With over 2000
stockholders and thirteen directors,
during the fifteen years if his presi
dency he never had an opponent or a
vet) cast against him in a stockhold
ers' meeting or in the Boaid of
Directors. He gained this con
flJence by a most absolute, sin
jj'faiinded loyalty anddevotioa t
the interest! cf the road. He lived
only tj serve Memphis and his
road, and he did to to the sat Uf action
of ' both, and at the same time he was
regarded with an affection tad respect
by his army of aubordinatsa that al-'
moat amounted to veneration. I a his
brilliant business career Col. Tate de
veloped the qualities of a ttitesman
and diplomat, aad was formidable and
much dreaded in railroad conferences,
eepeci ally when advantage was tibe
gained by shrewdness and foresight
The tuvages of the war and his e Quite
to aid the rebels on their rtturn home
after the surrender greatly impaired
his fortune. But he still has a
com patency left, and those who have
proflttd by his beneficence, and tho
old cit'ssna of Memphis who know
bat a tower cf strength be was
when they were struggling for the
prosperity that came, will unite in ex
pressing the bope that if his declining
years are by bodily infirmities male
hazy as the Indian summer, the end
will come to him softly ai the evening
melt! into the night, with its calm and
its stars.
The CJironkle, in its statement of
the overland movement and con
sumption cf cotton up t) February 1st,
says the severe weather of January
ban affected the shipments. Those cf
that month fell materially below the
figures lor December, and show a
heavy decrease from the same week
the two preceding seasons. The cur
rent t)tal is only 103,812 bales, against
145,014 bales list year and 135,003
bales in the preceding year. The
total to date continues to be in excess
of previous seasons. The increase
over latt season is now 142,703 tales,
and over 1333-84 124,001 bales. The
net figures also show a decided reduc
n compared with last mouth and
with the January totals of the two
previous years. It is only 31,107
Daies, against Dales last year
and 02,256 the y ar before that.. The
five months of the season give an ex
cess of 110,721 bales over the season
before and 114,528 ai compared with

817 last year and 487,720 in 18S4. The
total for the season to date Is no.w in
excess of that for the fame period of
1884-85, but the increase is vety small
reaching only 60 bales. In compari
Bon with 1883-81, however, the gain is
170,305 bales. Exports to foreign
ports in January fall behind the fig'
urea for list year, but the decline is
not bo great as in earlier months. The
exports for the month have been 401,'
505 bales, against 648,818 bales and
620,004 bales respectively, in 1885 and
1884. The aggregate for the season tj
date records a Iojs from a year ago of
321,410 bales, while the gain over two
years ago reaches now only 15,539

the Chinese. What he fears is shown
when he tays: "As yet no bloodshed

wonld boil with indignation if we
should read in the telegraph news
some morning that the Chinese were
in the same manner driving American
citizens out of Pekin 1 Yet the Chinese
have precisely the rights here
Americans have there. Our treaty
with China, which aroused the envy
of all Europe when we obtained
it, says that Americans resid

In the
Matter of Contempt of tbe
l ultrd (tlntra Comt.
In the United Status Court yester
day morning Mr. Ham Patterton filed
bis answer to the order cf Judge
Hammond citing him to appear and
show cause why he should not be held
in con l imp t tor assaulting Mr. New
man Eib in the court-room. The an
swer, in brief, stated that Mr. Patter
son had no intention cf intuiting the
court, and that, as the court had taken
a recess, he 'did net think that tho
court could be involved. Without ar
gument, Judge Hammond delivered
the following decision, which settles
me case:
judoe Hammond's decision.
it is a rude discouitesy to a court
and a grave attack upon the dignity tf
the authority to which the com t be
longs to use its court-room as fighting
ground under any circumstances,
even inougn tne court ds in re
cess ana tne judge not upon
the bench. Tbe circumstances of
this case show that the re
spondent bad no intention or thought
ot any incivility to the court or the
judge upon the bench, and the cause
of the rencounter had no connection,
near or remote, to the court or any of
its proceedings. The mistake of the
respondent was in assuming that when
the judge left the bench he might, so
mr ss toe court was concerned, pro
ceed to accomplish his purpose of mak
ing the assault, supposing that it was
only when the judge was upon the
bench that any question of contempt
could arise. But it must be apparent
to every one that this is a misconcep
tion and far too techniial to admit cf
approval anywhere. A court would
deserve the contempt of public
opinion it it p 'nu tted so narrow
a view of its prerogatives to prevail,
and tonld not complain, if during its
recess, the court-room should be used
for a cock-pit or a convenient place to
erect a prize ring. That is the logic of
tne iaise aesumpiion trial was made in
this case. But wholly aside from this
consideration there is a principle of
protection to an wno are engaged in
ana about tne proceedings ol acouit
that requires preservation against mis-
benavior ol this kind. The defendant
in court whose atOrney was at'acked
is entitled to tbe protection of tbe
court against any personal violence
toward its attorney while he is in at
tendance on the court. Otherwise,
attorneys might be driven from the
court, or deterred from coming to it,
or be held in bodily fear while in at
tendance, and thereby the adminis
tration cf justice be obstructed. This
principle might be pressed beyond
reasonable limits, to be sure, but it
certainly is not going beyond the true
confines of tbe doctrine to apply it
here. It protects parties, j urore, wit
nesses, the otlicersof thecouit and all
engaged in and about the business of
the court, even from the service of
civil process while in attendance on
the court, ana ceitainiy should pro-
tact an attorney at the bar from tbe
approach and attack of those who
would do him n personal violence. A
former ruling of this couit on that
subject has been especially approved
by very high authority. U. S. vr.
Anonymous, 21 Fed. Kep. 761 ; Sharon
vs. Hill, 24 Fed. Kep. 720. The only
trouble I have in such cases is in tlx
ins the nrorter DuniBbment. I have
always thought that I should invari
ably impose imprisonment on all wlo
should fight in this court aa the only
adequate punishment for to grave
an ollense. Here, however,' was
misconception of the general
subject and an honest belief
that no wrong to tbe court could be
implied from the transaction. The oc
currence took place at recess, nnd
while I do not deem this at all mat:
rial as a mitigation of the oftense, it
furnishes the basis of respondent's as
sumption that the couit could not be
involved in tne.matter. it is only this
misapprehension that causes me to mit
igate tbe punishment Hereafter there
can be no misunderstanding on this
point, and while this case will be a
nrwrdent for the Drincinle we would
enforce, it will not be considered such
aa to the character of the punishment

A Third Party Movement
Nashville, February 10. It is ru
mored here that there is danger of a
third party morement, and that an at
tempt will be made to putapiohibi
tion ticket in tne field. Many of the
best temparence men are opposed t)
this, among fiem Maj. J. W. Sykes,
who, in a recent communication to
the American, said that, "in order for
this question not (o ali'ect party reli
tions. the best, if not the only plan is
to Bubmit the question to the people
end let them si tile it by a direct vote.
If this is done it need not interfere
with either party. Some men in both
parties are in favor of prohibition,
and some are opposed to it, and if it
is submitted as a separate and distinct
proposition all may vote their senti
ments without abnndoning their re
spective parties. Unless this is done
it will become a party question, and
be the basis for the formation of a
new party, for there a-e many men
who consider this question cf more
importance than any of the questions
now dividing parties. I am not pre
pared to express an opinion whether
a cocstitnt'onsl amendment f abid
ing the manufacture and sale of alco
holic liquors as a beverage would be
adopted, but whether it would or not,
the people in their sovereign capacity
have a right to determine. That the
State has a right to regulate or to pro
hibit the manufacture and tale of al
coholic liquors as ft beverage there
can be no question. It has been so
decided by all our couits, Federal and
State, and such is the uniformly ex
pressed opinion of a 1 eminent law
writers. Whether it would be good
policy and wise legislation to do so is
another question.
It seems to me that tbe men en
gaged in the liquor traffic should not
oppose a submission of the constitu
tional amendment to the people. If,
as they say, a majority of the people
are opposed to the amendment it will
be defeated in a popular election.
This will put a stop to the agitation
and give Et-ength, quiet and firmness
to their business and put it on a
firmer basis. If, on the other hand, a
majority of the people are in favor of
prohibition a refusal by a minority of
the Legis'ature to let them vote on it
will intensify and strengthen the
prohibition sentiment and lead to de
cided action. A minority cannot long
defeat the will cf a determined ma
jority." llattnnlhet Vinllora En Route to

A correspondent at Brewersville, Li
beria, writing to the Gate City (Mo.)
fwi, cays: This place, Brewersville,
is fifteen miles ftom Monrovia. It is
fifteen years old. It is the largest set
tlement in Liberia outside of Monro
via. All the people who have emi
grated out here in the last ten or fif
teen years bave settled in this place.
Tbe people in the settlement are poor,
and one isn't able to help the ether in
a business sense of view. There are
no horses, mules or ox eh in the whole
settlement. They have to do all the
farm work with the hoe, the rake and
the ax. I have been out here now six
months. People are in a suffering
condition for something to eat and for
clothes to wear. There isn't any doc
tor in this settlement ; the settlement
is too poor to support one. The in
habitants aumber 550. Calico is twenty-five
cents per yard. A common
laborer, when he can get work to do,
receives twenty-five cents per day.
Tickled pork ia twenty-five cents per
pound, shoulder meat twenty-five
cents per pound. All the flour and
meat used here is imported from Eng
land and America. Cornmeal is ten
cents per quart. Common flour
is $15 per barrel. This is the
great act place far sores I ever raw.
There ia here an insect; its mime
is j'ger; it is very dangeio is. I
have seen grown people, and children,
too, with their toes eaten off. Shoea
are more needed here than in America.
It ia necearary to wear shoes all the
time, so as to protect your feet from
tkese insects, The people are unable
to keep shoes on their children all the
time, and a good many of them have
to wear aora feet all the year round.
My boy's feet have been so sore that
he could hardly walk.
The only way the settlers bave to
make any money here is by taisiDg
and selling coffee. It will take a new
comer like myself five or six years to
get a coilrte farm in trim for selling
coffee. Tbe public schools are in poor
condition. There ia aclaes of people
here who do not wa'at the true condi
tion cf things written back home.
They fay if the people want to know
how times are over bete, let them
come and see for themselves.
;a tale of two cities.
Who Wedded HentBhla
A Had Story.
Cincinnati Enquirer : About a year
ago Mrs. Sleep, who lived rn the cor
ner of Chase and Mad Anthony
streets, Cumminsville, . went to Mem
phis, Tenn., on a visit to relatives.
There she met a man named Harris.
He was a man of no mi a as at all in
deed, a shiftless tort of fellow, who
hid been in various sorts of business
and had net succeeded in any. For
some reason, known only to the femi
nine mind, Bhe took a fincy to him.
He t)ok a fancy to her, and, as subse
quent events lend to show, especially
fancied her because she was possessed
of some pioperty. The result was
tbat about nine mjcths ago Mrs. Steep
became Mrs. S. Harris.
Mrs. Steep was the widow of, a
firmer newspaper man of this city,
who left the business on account of
fa ling health and went into the shoe
business at Dayton, O., where he died
about three years ago. His widow
had two children to care for. Her hus
band left her, together with some per
sonal property, two houses on the
northwest corner of Chase and Mad
Anthony streets, Cumminsville. , She
had sufficient of this world's goods to
provide for herself and children. But
tbe aweets of married life, once tested,
were apparently irresistible the second
time. Harris ot Memphis proposed,
was accepted, and, as laid, she married
him about nine months ago.
bho, tly alter their marriage he in
duced bor to sell her property in Cum
micsville and give him at leatt a pait
of it to invest m business in Memphis.
She told the two houses for $5100 to
George Apfel, who k$cp3 a saloon on
Fifth ttreet, near Main.
With this money she went to Mem
phis with her new husband. There
he invested some of it in a grocery.
She came here on a visit, and again
returned ta Memphis. Sbesaidwhen
here that her new husband was not
what she bai expected he would be.
But, nevertheless, she returned to
him. Shortly after her arrival har

of the committee of the presidents cf
tne trunK lines was held at cjommiE'
eioner Fink's oflme yesterday to eon
siderthe east-bound situation. All of
the pcol roads were represented. The
conference was harmonious, and the
result ia likely io lead to an improve
ment in the maintenance oi east-bound
freight rates. There haa been more
or less complaint of irregularities at
tbe West, aud tbe complaints were
fully discussed. It was the general
opinion that most cf tbe irritation was
created by shippers who desired to
fracture the existing agreements,
iLicn roaa pledged itself to
strict execution of the pres
dents' agreement in good faith
and many po'atsof misunderstanding
were satisfactorily explained. Tbe
subject of live stocc and dressed beef
rates was discussed. It waa agreed
that an attempt to advance tbe tariff
should b'j male on March 1st, but no
definite measures were considered.
Pending the receipt of Commissioner
Fink's decision as to the differences
which ought to be allowed in favor of
the dressed heel shippers, it was
voted to retain the o'd plan of division
in the construction of the esst-bound
