j, i-'enator Mitchell, in his speech in
lenate yesterday, insisted that the
Chinese, all of them now in the United
States, should be expelled at once, and
thut no others should hereafter be jer

jimportof Mr. Mitchell's position w ill
be realized when our readers learn
that if such a policy is"p firmied and
the Chinese Government retaliates, as
it threatens to do, over 1S,000 Ameri
cans would be driven out of China, at
very heavy personal loss, and in tradu
we should lose several millions of dol
lars per annum.' " ) .
A resolution was reported in the
, House yesterday by Mr. Morrison of
J ilinois, providing for the appointment
, of a committee to investigate the
, J'an-Electric Company's affairs, so far
a Federal officials and members of
: Congress are involved in them. The
presentation of the resolution afforded
some of the gentlemen an opportunity
to indulge in a debate which was not
provocative of anything stronger than
. laughter. Messrs. Breckenridge and
Kogers of Arkansas warmly defended
Attorney-General Garland and insist
, d upon .an investigation.
Them was a panic in the ft. Louis
cotton market yesterday, occasioned,
it is said, by failures in Dardanelle,
Ark., and Houston, Tex., and our
special states that a similar
feeling prevailed in Ifew York. This
last is not true. There was and is no
occasion for panic in New York except
among the bulls who have stood by
their convictions too long. The Mem
phis market, as Bradstreet's weekly re
view, elsewhere published, says, is in a
strongly intrenched condition, facers
being effnftl "to " ary emerpfnc La-
buyers may spring. .
Iowa, with a population of 1,024,615,
expended in 1863-S4, $5,525,449 (Inst
year 15,880,000) in support of her com
mon schools, whereas Tennessee, with
a population of .1,542,359, something
over 82,000 less, only expended f 822,
5tJl.; Could anything more than th
speak .eloquently for the Blair bill
which, if it becomes a law, as the
Aiteal hopes it will, would enable
every Southern btate to open its pul
lie schools to every child, black
well as white, and for periods in each
year almost, if not quite, double that
, now usual? Senator Allison says the
have no very rich people in Iowa, but
that everybody is well-to-do, thrifty
and independent.
Senator Allison of Iowa vesterday
spoke in the Senate for the Blair edu
cational bill, of which Senator Howell
E. Jackson of this State is so earnest
an advocate. Representing as he does
a State that has only three per cent.
ol illiteracy, Mr. Allison is able to
realito in the average comfort and in
telligence of the people he represents
the value of an education that is de
nied to many of the children of 1he
Southern States, no four of which to
gether have expended in any one.year
as Iowa has done, $5,88G,000, for the
. support of common schools. Think
for a moment of what could be done
for the children of Tennessee if the
State could expend $6,000,000 per an.
num for their education.
A correspondent of the riiilndel-
: phia Press within the present week
Mirred up a little breeze by w hat he
represented to the Avalanche and the
Nashville Union as an interview
with Mr. E. B. Stahlman, vice-presi
dent of the Louisville and Nashville
railroad, who is better known, perhaps,
for the conspicuous part lie took in
the last State Congress. In this in
terview Mr. Stahlman was reported to
have -said that he would carry the
railroad vote of the State (made tin,
we suppose, of the railroad employes)
into the Republican ranks in order to
defeat the Democratic paiiy next fall.
Such a threat would liave been sillv.
and being silly is wholly unlike Staid-
man, who js a shrewd business man,
too bright and smart to be caught
flapping, and, above all, too intelli
gent to accept an invitati i to record
so immature a boast. 0V 'ege quali
ties he gave the highestV lenee in
the canvass -of l$S4, whicl. e con
ducted for the railroads witft Hrked
ability. Our contemporaries, i. V'
fcuirieand the Nashville -lmrAXM
the Union, have promptly done i
the. justice to recognize Mr. StA
man's political position as he relates it
himself, and give him full credence for
his disclaimer as to the interview.
The Xrcffcsity for Dlvfrstfl4 Crops
The Butter Awards Lart
Da)' Proceedings.
Jackison, Tenn., February 2i.
This, the third ami last day of the In
terstate Convention, has leeii quite
interesting. The weather is delight
ful, and our Northern visitors seem to
be charmed with the generous hospi
tality of our citizens. The principal
topics of discussion to-day were the
horse and the cow. These subjects
were discussed in all their various
lights and details from a Southern and
Northern Htandixnnt. The sessions of
the convention have been interspersed
throughout wi;h choice instrumental
and vocal music.
The following very inijiortant reso
lutions were adopted with almost
unanimity ani without debate, being
amended "so at to embrace hog pro
ducts and brwdstuffsaswell ascotton:
The manipilation by speculators of
the cotton cup of 1HS.((, which so
depressed pri'es thut thev have fallen
below the attual cost of production,
forces upon tie planters of the South
the necessity of relieving themselves
as far as in their power lies from the
influence of so ruinous a system as
that which row controls the chief ex
portable pnduct of the country, and
with this eid in view we, the 'repre
sentatives ol the agricultural interests
of lenncsvcr in convention assembled,
call upon on; brother planters of all
the Southern States, to protect them
selves by mited action.
Eutholdeicd by past successes, the
speculator iias already fixed a stand
ard price ir the cotton crop of KSSii
8". This Ijr has done before the seed
has Ix'en rut in the ground or eveu
the plows lave been started. Cotton
futures for the months of October.
November and December. lHSti. ami
January, 1887, are to-dav quoted in
Newiork at from e.!K) to 8.75c. ac
cording to the month. This means not
exceeding 8jc for middling cotton in
New York, or 8Jc at the nrincinal cot
ton shipping points of the South, in
cluding such cities as New Orleans,
Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, Au
gusta, Galveston and Memphis. Mid
dling cotton at these cities selling for
bjc means not more tnan 74c to the
planter, who must pay freight, insur
ance and regular commission charges,
which generally average from j to lc
per pound. Now, in view of these
conditions, so ruinous of our interests,
we appeal to the intelligence of the
cotton grower, and ask him can he pay
the expense of farmingand make even
a bare living by selling cotton at 7Jc
per pound? The answer is already
given in the negative. The next
question following upon this is,"What
is the remedy ?" Ve answer, "Divers
ified crops." riant one-third less cot
ton, and more grain and grass
es. Raise hogs and hominy.
Let cotton henceforth be a surplus
crop. Instead of producing 6,500,000
bales, make only 4,500,000 bales. By
this means we may realize a living
price for our labor and at the same
time jjveiodflt)flnd4in,tly of the specu
lating sharks who profit by our losses.
In addition to this the Leirislatures of
each of the Southern States should be
petitioned to make dealings for future
delivery, unless tho xnttnn in ootnoll..
in hand to sell and is actually deliv
ered at the time of delivery to the
contracting purchaser, a felony, pun
ishable by fine and imprisonment, not
less than I00 and two years in the
penitentiary. The time is now propi
tious for united action, and we appeal
to the press of the South to aid us in
our efforts by giving every publicity
iu uus pruiesi ami appeal, winch we
feel cannot but result Wnefichdly to
the planter if promptly acted inion
and lived up to honestly.
The awards on the butter exhibits
were announced tins evening, ns fol
lows: Best pound of Tennessee cream
ery, Nashville, Tenn., J15; best dairy
butter, per pound, to Mr. Foster of
Wisconsin, 10; second best butter,
per pound, Mrs. Moss, J 5.
Notwithstanding the number of vis
itors to the convention is not.
large as was anticipated, it is credit
able, and much good,' it is thought, on
the whole, will result. The most no-
ticeable feature about the whole pro
ceedings is the small attendance by
our local farmers. There is but very
fow who have attended or taken an
interest in the convention. Quito a
number of men are here who never
visited the South before, and who ex
press themselves satisfied with the
meeting, which has been the means of
showing them the cordial sentiment
existing in the South toward the
North, and that the South extends the
right hand of good fellowship to all
good citizens throughout the union.
This much good, at least, hs the con
vention accomplished.

Mrs. J. L. Leslie of thk county met

morning. While ridimron a wagon-
load of lumber from one of her places
to the other, the team became fright

breaking a rib and running it through
her lung, causing death at 1 o'clock

In the chess game to-day between Zu-

that they wished to make time, for
Stinit played K to B 3, and imme

out his B to Q Kt 3, and Zukertort,

rapid to the end, when the game
was declared a draw on the twenty

fifty-eight minutes and JCukertort
twenty-three minutes. It was a "book

variation was the eleventh move.
when Steinitz cave B to H 3. instead
of the traditional B to Kt 2. At the
seventeenth move Zukerlort asked
Steinitz, "Will you play to a win?"
As a druw seemed probable, Steinitz
replied that he would T'lav a while
longer. On the twenty-first move he
said he was willing to make it a draw,

afterward thev both began to show

Tub Oil and Drug Reporter says: The
cotton-seed oil market has not" yet im
proved, as generally expected, and
values continue to slide up and down
according to views of holders and
buyers as to what constitutes prime.
The business in crude, oil transacted
during the week was on a low basis.
as holders were either compelled to
accept the views of buyers or continue
paving storage on their miscellaneous
collection of oils. There were sales of
700 barrels in lots of a fair
grade at 20 cent and a few
other lots changed hands from that
figure to 24 cents. Prime oil was of
fered at the latter figure on Saturday
to arrive next week, but without busi
ness, and to-day 3(10 barrels strictly
prime for March" delivery were offered
at24Jc. This is only (c above the
price at Memphis. Some of the
Southern mills are demanding a figure
equivalent to 27c laid down here, and
an effort has been made to do business
here on that basis, but the extreme
price paralvzes buyers. The market
closed weak. We hear from New Or
leans to-night that very little prime
crude oil is offering and that the mar
ket is quiet at 22i(ij)23e. Seed is com
ing forward slowly.

Bradsireefa Wei-kijr Review.
Nkw 1 okk, February 26. Sueeial
leiegrams 10 uraiistreut s mis week
show the same irregularity in general
trade conditions reported Lwiin week
to week for over a month past.
The most encouraging accounts are
from Chicago, Kansas Citv, Des
Moines, .Milwaukee mid-Memphis.
At Chicago there has -bee:i an in
crease in the milliner of mail orders
received, anil more "buyers' from
the. interior me present.- There, as at
most points announcing jit gain in the
volume of merchandise! distributed,
the improvement is chiellv felt in dry
goods. ' '
the verv general brightening of the
weather during the week isjesponsi-
)le tor much of the tain. While
there are no new feutimsin the situa
tion at Boston, business there is in
slightly better shape.
Most staple lines in Philadelphia
are dull, except iron and tteel ami
leading textiles, which are more act
The opening of navigation at Balti
more results in better trade there.
On the other hand, at Cincinnati
business is not so active.
At St. Paul it is generally quiet, and
at San Francisco quiet and "irregular.
There has been no gain at Pittsburg.
St. Louis advices are that the trade
is improving slowly.
Results due to "the organitation of
labor are seen in the meeting of West
ern coal miners at Columbus, O., the
success of the striking New York cigar
makers, the stubborn attitude of the
striking coke burners.as well. as in the
fact that most Eastern cotton-mills
will pay a 10 percent, advance in
wages in the spring. Higher prices
are demanded for dry goods, owing to
advanced wages paid ojx-ratives, but
jobbers are more active. Prices in all
lines are as high as last year at this
time, and in some lines 5 to 10 per
cent, higher.
Print cloths are weaker and lower,
having declined 3Jc, less ) per cent, to
3 3-10c per yard for fl-4s. This, in the
face of an advance of 10 per cent, in
wages promised the operatives on
March 1st. Wool prietrs.au- not so
firm, as takings are light, but prices
are as yet unchanged. As stocks of
common are very low and the de
mand for fleece is fair, it is believed
that manufacturers will take liberally
in. the near future, thus promising a
good spring trade.
Wheat has been more active for ex
port and the options have felt the in
fluence, prices advancing all round on
renewed speculative interest. Part of
the gain has been lost, but cash No. 2
red at New York closed at 2Je,
against 91 jc one week ago. Tho ex
port demand has not been fully main
tained, and it is premature to expect
either renewed exports or an advance
in prices based on a question of de
mand ami supply at home and
Indian com has been irregular and
lower on heavy receipts. No. 2 closed
at 50e, against 54c a week ago.
Wheat Hour is about 10c higher per

but In the treatment of other members of
my family, but temporary reliet was all
that I obtained. I was unfit for any manual
labor for seve-al years. By chanoe I came
into posse. ion of a pamphlet on "Blood
and Skin Disease.." from the office ol Hwiit
Bpeoific Co.. Atlanta, la. A friend recom
mended the use of Nwift's Kpeoifio. claiming
that he himself had been greatly benefited
bv its ute in some tunc trouble.. I resolved
to try it. About lour yean ago I commenced
to take S. 8. S. according to direction. I
found it an Invieoratine tonic and aava uaad
about fifty bottles. The re ulls are most re
markable. My eougb baa left me, my
strength has returned, and 1 weigh siity
pounds more than I ever did in my lite. It
baa been three years since I stopped the
use of the medicine, but I hare bad no re
turn of the disease, and there are no tiaina
or weakness felt in my lungs. I do the hard
est kind of meehanieal work, and feel as
well as I ever felt since I was a boy. Tcene,
J know, are wonderful statements to make,
ut I am honett when I aav that f nmm m
esirtence and health to-day to Hwift's Spe
cific. It is Ue only medicine that brought
me any permanent relief. I do not aav that
Swift's Bpeoific will do this iaeverycase,
but molt positively affirm that it has done
this much for me, and I would be recreant
tn the duty I owe to suffering humanity if I
failed to bear this cheerful teatimonv tn th.
merits of th'S wonderlul medicine. I am
well known in the city of Montgomery, and
can refer te some of the best 'itiien. is the
