Thitsh is wme talk In Helena of

ernor of Arkansas. Hut, ax our corre
spondent sayn.hc would not have more
than, "the ghost of a show," and that
will never catry liira through a lk'tuo

a very good Governor, and the people
eninUly dreiru his re-election.
Skvatimi HowKT.r. K. jeRON of this
State, with Senator James L. Pugh of
Aluhuina, is preparing the minority
report of the h'enato Judiciary Com
mi t loo on the question of the Prew
dent'a civil service policy and his
riK'ii. to withhold oral or written in

to-day, this report w ill le read In tho
Senate on Monday or Tuesday. .
Judqb Cate proposes to antagonize
Poindexter Dunn in the First Arkan
sas Congressional Dirtrict, but he is
likely to have his trouble for his pains.
' Dunn is a hard-working, alert and in
telligent Kopreuenlutivo, who has a
recognised place in the House of Rep
resentatives A a very useful member,
and hiii Democratic constituents will
do well to stand by him. Indeed, we
understand they are almost nnani-
' mous in their determination to nom
nate and re-elect him.
"Kahbucr" makes a very striking
contrast this morning between the
negro and the white revivalists, very
much to the advantage of the former.
.They have more lung power, more
staying power, more animal magnet-
' ism, more rich, hot blood and more
vital energy, and they can get up en
thusiasm on shorter notice and keep
it up longer. Then, too, they have
.hi! uu vantage of congregations that
nurrender themselves to a weaving
way quicker and to a more abandoned
dejjpee than the whites.
Ocir Jackson correspondent has sent
tis another interesting special devoted
toState politics. It will be found on this
page. Part of it is devoted to an in
terview with a Sweetwater gentleman,
who deals the Shelby Democracy a
well-deserved blow square between
the eyes that it will do for our home
roadum to remember. This gentle
man prefers the gallant Dibrell
for Governor, and has, to use
a colloquialism, "no use for Bob Tay
lor," whoso highest qualification for
Governor, it is generally conceded, is
that he plays the fiddle after the most
approved "yawp" style and can tell
broad anecdotes. Our Sweetwater
friend makes an admission that will
be read by Appkal subscribers with
pleasure, and that is that the three
grand divisions of the State are
United in their faith and confidence
in Howell K. Jackson.
. .. Turn minorijyroport of rthe House
Committee on the Penitentiary, accord
ingtooor Jackson (Miss.) special, to be
seen on the sixth page, exonerates
Gov. Lowry and the superintendent
from any wrong doing or omission of
doty in 'connection with the prison.
This ' in very well so far as
it goes. But it is only a minor
ity report. The majority !of the
committeo declare to the contrary,
and that declaration can only be nul
lified by new testimony and the dec
laration of tho committee based there
upon that they are blameless. Gov.
Lowry owes it to himself not to rest
satisfied with the declaration of tho
minority of the committee. He must
remember that a majority of tho Su
preme Court decides every case
brought before it.
A corjusponoknt of the Louisville
Timet sneers at the Rev. Messrs.
Daniel and Boggs. Well, that is easy
of accomplishment. A bootblack
could give this friend of the Converses
twenty in the game and beat him.
But it is the best the opponents of our
good friends could do. They could
not say anything to their damage or
detriment as men or as ministers of
the gospel, nor could they disparage
the ability and scholarship that makes
them conspicuous among the divines
of the Presbyterian Church. Their
course in the Converse trial must
commend them anew to the church,
of which they are faithful servants.
They have made a manly vindication of
their characters and sustained them
selves at all points as jealous only of
that which all men value and that
Bhould be especially dear to professing
Christians. They have done just what
was to be expected of them, and their
neighbors in Memphis of all creeds
are more proud of them than ever.
In the special from Jackson thrtour
correspondent devotes to the Inter
state Convention there will be found
something in reference to the views
entertained by the delegates of the
Northwost as to the South and its re
sources that will' be most encour
aging reading to all ol the Ap
peal's readers. It is in telling
contrast with the statements of two
Southerners who prefer to go on as
their fathers did before them and raise
nothing but cotton. With all our
boasted civilization, it takes a long
time to get even a proBtable lesson
into some skulls. It is almost as hard
as getting a joke into a Scotchman's
head. But we have faith in
the power of the Inter
state Convention to overcome even
the prejudices of these hard heads and
put them safely on the road to pro
gress by modern ways and means.
The planters of the South will never
be prosperous no til they make cotton
as aikflrther subsidiary crop.

Xour correspondent to-day inter
viewed several of the leading dele
gates from tfrs KoTthwest, und found
all of them delighted with the coun
try and the treatment they had re
ceived. They displayed a freedom in
the expression of their ideas which
could nave come from nothing else
than an assured feeling thnt what
they had to say would be considered
dispassionately and- without preju
dice. In other words, they labored
nsder none of that restraint which
would very probably have affected
them had they visited this section
five or six years sooner. The people
of Jackson, end those from the South
generally, who met them in the con
vention are to be congratulated upon
having given such true expression to
the generous hospitality for which the
South is famous, as to make the gen
tlemen from the far away and preju
diced North and West feel at home
from the moment of their arrival. In
the dining room of the hotel this
morning I was a listener to
a conversation which illus
trates to what an extent my
remarks are true. Two West Tennes
seanB objected to the speech mado by
Col. Milliard of Louisiana last night,
on the ground that it pictured the
South in terms too glowing and were
weak enough to assert as their opin
ion that the South was unfit for the
production of anything else except its
present staples, that the formers of
the West would starve to death with
their notions in the South, whoso soil
was unflt for grain and grasses and
only good for cotton. They went on
at length to give their own and their
neighbors experiences, declaring that
every experiment had resulted in
financial loss. They persisted with
the tenacity of agricultural crabs,
whose chief motion is backward, that
if grasses, grain, sheep, hogs, horses
and cattle nad been profitable in the
South, cotton would nave been aban
doned long ago that somebody would
have found it out. A couple of tall
Wisconsin men, practical farmers and
educated, sensible men, who sat op
posite them, sat for a few moments
with au expression of amazement on
their facts, and at rtwfr, nnablo to listen
any longer, opened their mouths
to defend tho South from the as
sault two Southerners were mak
ing upon it. They spoke warm
ly and ' fortified their argument
with facts, making the Southern
detractors of the South heartily
ashamed of themselves lefore they
I had a short talk to-day with the
Hon. Clinton Babbitt, one of the vie
presidents of the convention and
secretary of the Wisconsin Statu
Agricultural Society. He occupies two
handsome apartments in the State
House at Madison, and is an important
figure in tho State government. "Yes,
we mukc a business of this sort of
thing up our way," he said, "and have
got every thingdown fine. The farmers
are learning the value of statistics and
how to apply them to more advantage
year after year. Deep interest is taken
in all agricultural assemblies. I have
just finished with one which was
largely attended, the deepest interest
being taken in the discussion, every
man noping to get some new idea from
his neighbor, and striving to learn
rather than to set up his own precon
ceived notions. It is a question of
money, not sentiment. Meetings like
the present will do the South a great
deal of good. I have been delighted
at the interest taken in the papers
read, especially v those on grasses,
something of which this country is
very much in need. I am satisfied a
variety of grasses can be grown here
with profit, and with the result of re
storing the lands and ' preventing the
soil from wasting into gullies. The
South wants to plant grass first, and
then go ahead with . other things.
This is my first visit South, and I can
not tell you how pleasant my impres
sions have been of both people and
country. I freely acknowledge that,
like thousands in my part of the
country, I have been laboring under a
cloud of misapprehensions. I am
glad they are removed."

Bajs af tbe Matter, '
New Yokk, February 25. The Pout
has an interview with Attorney-General
Barlow, in which he intimates a
belief that the action of the State
legislature in instructing the Attorney-General
to take action and annul
the charter of the Broadway surface
railroad was not taken in good faith ;
that the purchase of the New York
aldermen lias no legal connection
with the charter, which was drafted
in a perfectly regular way under the
fvneral incorporation law, and cannot
e set aside on the ground of fraud.
Mr. Barlow intimates that this action
may have lieen Instituted for the pur
pose of hindering the ends of justico
ov keeping others from taking action.
He says the proper course for the
legislature is to puss an act annulling
the charter and lor the city to revoke
the right of way through Broadway.

has led him to undertake a political
fight rather than one to secure the re
jection of lutd iiu-u. In seeking to
make ' capital beinre the country be
took up tie I Mtkin ease. If 'the

suggestion :ahout "selected'1 cases is
taken as nn intimation that the tight
is not to be renernl or prolonged until
the end of . Uitt -ssiou. The Demo
crats nro determined to make an effort,
after the rrt i the minority of the
Judiciary Committee is submitted,
to get Vote squarely on
the issue . an to whether the
President enn remove in his discretion
without furnishing reasons. They are
led to believe that Mr. Fxlmunds

of unw illiivi votes, and that the Sen
ators w!m lent tliumselves to Mr. Ed
munds for that e vasion are not pre
pared to nmke fiemselves ridiculous
tor all time just tn oblige the Vermont
Senator in his Senatorial campaigning.
They believe tliat several Senators
from tlie majority side would be glad
of an opportunity to accord the Presi
dent the fullest executive discretion
in making removals, and prome to
aflord thoselHenators a chance to vote
as they think at an early day.

publican Senators in their )OHitioii of
resistance. What purported to lo a
synopsis of Mr. F.dmiiuds's report was
published a?frUiiglitngo in several of
the ucwspaiHtf. It is not a bit like the
report itself, but a Democratic Sen
ator who road it expressed the opin
ion that the oifrespondent who had
attempted to predict what Mr. Ed
munds would sy had made a more
ingenious statement than the Senator
from Vermont. Mr. Pugh of Ala
bama is preparing the minority report,
aided by Mr. Jiickfeon of Tennessee,
and he will complete it to-morrow,
but will not present It to the Senate
until a later day in the week. It will
not depart from the grounds of Mr.
Pugh's resolution, Introduced in the
Senate on February 3d, in which
ho maintain thut the power of
removal or suspension is an ex
ecutive power to bo exercised by the
President without any limitation in
the constitution, ns is imposed on the
power of appointment, and that he is
responsible fur rem ovals and suspen
sions to tho joplo alone, und not to
the Semite. An attempt will be made
to fit the precedents more correctly
than those cited by Mr. Edmunds.
While an oninion by Attorney -General
Akermun, given on August 4,
1870, mny be quoted as tho view of a
Republican, who held thut the re
fusal of the Senate to confirm the
candidate t take the plocu of
a removed 1 officer could only
act to keep the President from
tilling an oifice before the end of a
session, the opinion of another Re
publican Attorney-General may be
cited to sustain the position that tho
President need not give any reason
for a suspension. But not much
stress will be laid on opinions that are
more or less partisan. Cases in num
ber will be given to show that the
Senate has not, as a rule, or otherwise
than exceptionally, assorted the right
to revise acts of the executive, and
that even in the one case cited by Mr.
Edmunds the papers were refused.
In the talk about the tenure of
office law, which is expected to take
up a considerable portion of the dis
cussion on the Edmunds report, a good
deal of attention will )e paid to the
peculiar wording of the third section,
which is section 1709 in the Revised
Statutes. It authorizes the President
to fill all vacancies which may happen
during the recess of the Senate, by
reason of death, resignation, or ex
piration of term of office, by granting
commissions to expire at the end of
the next session of the Senate. But
if no appointment "by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate" is
made to Bitch an office during the ses
sion, "the ollicc shall remain in abey
ance, without any salary, fees, or
emoluments attached thereto,
until it is filled by pHiint
mcnt thereto by ana with the
advice and consent of tho Senate."
This section will bo strongly criticised
by the Demncrats. They say that in
a number of cases now pending in the
Senate the term of office of the erHon
susivcnded during the recess bos now
expired, anil there will be numerous
similar cases before the final adjourn
ment of the session. I'nder section
17(H), they admit it is in the power of
the Republican majority in the Senate,
by rejecting or refusing to confirm
nominations in such coses, to cause all
such offices to become vacant on tlie
adjournment of the Senate, and to
continue vacant at the pleasure of the
Senate for an indefinite period. Tho
power to cause such endless confusion
and disorder ih the business of
the government should not be
given to Republicans or Demo
crats, the latter say, even if
the tenure of office law is constitu
tional. Some of the Democrats would
not be surprised to find the more par
tisan Republicans trying to carry out
such a programme as section 1769 en
ables them to do. They think, how-
to the Republican canst! us the party
leaders would like, but Would so dis
gust the intelligent public us to muke
many votes for the lVmix rut. From
this point of view tlie Democratic
Senators would not lv sorrv to see the
Republicans go to such extreme
lengths in their attempt to annoy and
bur raws the Cleveland administration.
Numerous forgotten Incidents in the
history of the executive and legislative
branches of the government have leeii
brought fo light in the study of the
records ot tlie Senate, which lias tot
lowed the presentation of the YA-
luumla report. Among these is the
fact that in President Madison's time
tlie Senate made an effort to join the
it : ..a , i r.
i rcsmciu in iiuiKiiig an npiHiiiiimeni.
Instead of iiassing anv resolution on
the subject, however, the Senate a-
iMiinteil a committee to visit tlie Presi
dent and advise with him about a cer
tain appointment. President Madi
son received the committee court
eously und listened to what thev had
to say. Then he reminded the Sen
ators that it was the duty ot the ex
ecutive to wild nominations to the
Semite, and it-was not the duty of the
Senate to tell the executive whom he
should nominate, and that was all the
satisfaction thcSonutors got from their
It is likely fliat In-fore tho minority
reiMirt of the Judiciary t omtiuttee is
presented to the Senate, it will be sub
mitted to the Democratic Senn'ors in
caucus, as the members of the com
mittee think that in a matter of so
much importuhce the Senators should
know in advance to what they will be
asked to give their united support.
Messrs. Pugh and Jackson have been
following independent lines of re
search in hiking up material f ir the
report, und will compare notes to
morrow. Mr. Vest bus lieen too 111 to
hike part in the matter, and Mr. Coke
takes hardly as much interest in the
subject as his colleagues on the com
mittee. HANtOt K MEMORIAL SERVICES
