The Freed failure, which created to
much excitement in financial circles
here end elsewhere, and came very
near causing a panic, is still diacuseed
on 'Change. The follow irg, from the
Little Rock Denuxrat ot yetturday,
will be found interesting:
Yesterday a Clateite reporter ascer
tained that Mr. C. M. Freed of Dardu
di lie was in the city, and called oa
him. Bis failure on Satnrday was tha
business senta ion of the season in
Aikunsas, and public attent.oa has
been directed to it all the more partic
ularly from the causes that led to it.
Mr. Freed was found looking quite
laggard and worn. He nevertheless
khowed that he was possessed of the
grit that causes a man t) rise nnder
ditliculties. Almost the first words he
laid to the reporter were:
"I do not wiah newspaper notoriety ;
but I do want to say that I expect to
pay dollar for dollar for every cent
that I owe. I am not as o'd a man as
I look ami Lave got lots of work left
in me yet. I have children growing
up, and for their sakcr, if Lothingelee,
I will never rest until I havu paid
ever? dollar."
"Mr. Freed, tliwe has not et been
pnhlinhed an accurate account of your
liabilities; will you give them to mjV'
"Yee, sir. I notiued in a papar that
I owed some ladies about three or four
times wtat I do, and hare is a lift of
the j'ltlgajents and attachments up to
the preett time."

Mr. Freed said, holed up J100.SIU.8i;
but tbers wero some other debts
which would swell the liabilities to
$110,000. In rej?a-d to his assets he
could tot say Jt finitely how much
they were, but he said if his creditors
would not crowd loi hard he be
lieved he would be a'jle tj pay what
he owed.
When questioned iu reiid (o the
causes tv His failure, Mr. Freed said
ho had nr.t noticed Ihtt his commis
stoi hoitne in St. Liuis, Messrs.
Adler, tit Kliiian Co , lad been re
ported ai holding his ext. on conttay
to his wishes. Ho did not wiih an
injustice coje to this hoceo. He
c.iul 5 not say that they had advised
him to hold-t'ie cotton shipped to
them. Th way fie who's uia'ter

Me8t8. Adler, GoMojaa it Co. did not
een't Buch ciiculars advising every
body to held their cotton fur

the rt-ts was flooJod with these
circulars and they fell into the
hands of the farmers. They would
come into his business house with
those circulars in their hands. A

cottoa this year. He never did ship
as much to St. Lduh es has been
Btattd, ttnd tad now in H. Louis :'id
balee, whila ho had l.O'.'O bales in
New Orleans.
Mr. Freed siid that he had paid out
money oa his debts up to the time of
the failure, and mentioned several
small debts that amounted to several
thousand do'Lirs. He said that he
wett ahead as long as he (ojlJ, but
when bis creditors began to press him
he felt that he had tone to tbe end
and could ib nothing more.
Last night Mr. J. D. Goldman of St.
Louis, of the firm cf Messrs. Adler,
Goldman & Co. of St. Liuis and New
Orleans, the commission house with
which Mr. Freed did business, called
at the Uatelle cilice. In conversation
with a representative of the paper he
said that tbe f lilure of Mr. Freed wai
very unexpected to his house.
lie wished to say that hia housa had
not advised Mr. Freed to bold his cot
ton, because that had net been their
policy. Charley Freed bad had
credit ot $250,000, and it was like a
thunderbolt when a telegtatn was re
ceived announcing bis failure.
When asked about the cow famous
St. Louis crt on circultr, Mr. Gold
man said that it was true that a mis
take had been made by some, bit all
St. Louis merer .tutu should net be in
cluded, and inju-tiie done to firms
which had pursued a different policy.

Mr. A. .1 Steele, I'-inoipel LeMoyne lusti-
tu'e, Memphis, Tcnu.t
Dbar Sir On 'my return fton a
trip to the South I find your leit'rof
January 2ot'l.
lam glad t learn that you have
succeeded in gtt ing your indos'tial
department tinder way, and I iucljsn
dtuft f Jr $;50 to help this branch cf
tbe school.
I trust this department will he of
substantial benefit to the scholars, for
1 believe it to be one of the most im
portance; not because your pupils are
colored, but because in this these to ars
will acquire t'ie knowledge and
skill most in demand, regard
less cf robr. In your iclo d,
as iu nearly all schools, a
laiRB majority, no doubt, expect at
most lo speed a few years in getting
that I it rt of their education aciiuired
at school, and the question should be,
what can be done in that time to best
and mrst certainly secure a comforta
ble living and g iod positio l ?
1 have been afraid that tbe colored
people would ba prejudiced ajainst
this kind rf education; that they
might consider educatioi only to ba
u: quired from books and its chief ob
ject an escape from manual labor, and
1 think it quite natural tlat they
ahnuld have Buch a prejudice. A race
that has been denied education and
compelled to wort, readily concludes
that idleness and education a -e both
blessings; and tie question is, have
they the intelligence to determine
what is the object and end to be se
cured by an education ?
If they have it not now I bolieve
they will fain it, and I believe they
will find that the education and skill
nowmott in den aid Is iutellig-nt
manual ability, and the youog people
of the North are now being guided by
thi demand.
With groat interest in the success
of your ecto ;l, balieve me very truly
yours, J. V. LbMoynu.
Besides the above kind lit er aid

What Supt. Collier Thinks or (he
Matter .Sketch of the Va
rious rboK
A few days aince the Appeal gave
thedetiilaof the confiscation nf tbe
library lot, on the corner of Jefl'ertoa
and Toird streets, tithe publ cscbojls,
and a reporter yesterday called upon
Saptrintendeut Collier lo know what
tbe prospects were for erecting a build
ing there.
"That I cannot lay," Capt, Collier
replied; "but I do know that Mem
phis ia very much in need of a school
in the central poit:on f the city. The
location is an admirable one and the
lot, though not very large, is autliciect
ly spacious to accommodate a gcucl
si nd building. There would not ba
much left for a play-ground, however,
And that is a consideration too often
"Ia the pressure on the schools
eufliidemly relieved by tbe erection of
the; new buildings on Auction and
Geomia streets."
"Considerably. But there are a
number of applications now on file
that we can not grant, and probably
there would be more except that it is
pre tty well knowa that the schools
are pretty well fliled. However, we
might manage well enough with the
number of u' 'tools we no n have f r a
lit le while) if they ware relm;lt-not
npaired but replit'ied bv new
and more commodious structures,
especially designed fir the purpose. If
the boird had tbe money they would
no doubt know wba. to do with it.
I he Linden street building might be
torn down for instance, aad two build
ings, one for boys and one for gitls,
erected instead. The lot ia sulllciently
la-ge. While the numbe- nf pupils in
attendance is very large, 3767 this year,
it might be larger if we ta t better
echo i) houses. It is one of the first
things of which a stranger inquires
when be visits a city with a view nf
suttling. In the live West the neces
sity fir schools, and good ones, has
long been rccngniz id. Its rapid growth
may be in a large measure atcrtbtd to
tha giod sense of tbe pioneers. In
nearly every Kcttlemeut the stoue or
brick facade ot a echool-houi is reared
through the very smoke which ruilt
upward (torn the log-heap made n
clearing the town ait ;."
There is no city iu the United States
in which so much attention has of
late been given to sunitwjy at lira and
so thoionghly ai in Memphis; and,
even though there are slul outlying
portions of the city in which tbe
work is incomplete, toe public mind
bai been so thotoughlv aroused to the
importance of the subject Unit consid
erations cf hygiene enter into e-ery
thing that is done. I a no department
of municipal ailairs l;a pubiio opin
ion acted more eir)ctually in this
direction than in the management of
the public BchooN, which in this re
spect, witn one or two exceptions in
the remtts eubmbs, tike the lent
uuong the schools of Tenneaees. But
more is to he dona yet, as w 11 be seen

Presses t Time.
Some time siace ato.it 300 cit sms
joined in a movement to give a ccm
pliment uy benefit to. Mr. Jos. Brooks,
of the Memphis. Theatre. Tbe proffer,
formally drawn np and signed, was
forwarded to Mr. Brooks, from whom
the following reply was received yes
terday. 11. Furstenheim and others:
Gentlemen- Your esteemed letter
tendering me a complimentary benefit
at such time as I may name, and with
sucb an attraction as 1 might select,
received. I deferred replying in the
hope that I might be enabled to avail
inye-elf of yonr kind offer, but sucb
ate my enagementa that I find it im
possible to be in our city at any time
dui og the present season to make ar
rangements for the attractions, etc. I
am therefore constra'ned to postpone
the date for tvie benefi'. 1 cauntt,
however, al ow lb a opportunity to
pass without expressing lo my manv
friends the earnett desire I feel ti
grasp the band of each of them, and
assure them that it shall ever be my
endeavor to deserve the kiodnesi I
have already experienced at their
bauds. I hope, however, that in a
short time I may be enabled t i accept
the kind cuVr you make me, and
with thauks tooneand al", I am vonre.
The scores of Mr. Brooks's friends
join the Aiteal in regretting that the
opportunity to attest the esteem in
which he is held is deferred, and it is
to be honed that the compliment,
when paid, will be doubly ttlt-itive.
