J' bC-tDAY, I X Mk 80, 188ft
It will be seen frcm no!iiercolaron
that the Democrtlo Eiecutive Com
mittee hw postponed the county rn
meeting ircm Taedy next to the 12th
ol June. It wai thought the notice for
Saturday wa too eboit, end the first
call baa been postponed with the view
of giving ample time to et-cure a rous
ing, enthusiastic mass-meeting com
posed of delegatee from every part of
the county. As the meeting will
v make known lis preference is to a can
didate for Governor, the friends of
Col Robert F. Looney are anxious that
there should be a large attendance,
that the voice of the people of Shelby
county sha'l be heard in no uncertain
sound. - The delegates will be, of
course, instructed . to support Col,
Looney, and all classes and professions
should torn out and swell the lou J
acclaim for the nomination of a
distinguished citixen who bas been
Jdent fled with them in pros
perity and adversity for nearly
foity years. Col. Looney is tint
versally beloved by the people among
whom he bas so loog lived, and be his
earned tbia respect and love by an ex
emplary life. Since the days of hia
youth he has been a member of the
Presbyterian Church, and his lite bas
been one of cobriety and morality,
without blot or stain. lie presents
the anomalv of a man who bai lived
half a century without ever tasting a
drop of ardent spirits. While op
noted to sumptuary laws and
tamnoranre fanaticism, he not
only preaches temperance but
has always practiced it. The cV
mcralUation engendered by tbe war
never swerved hiin fiom his s
briety and morality. He is on"
of the landmarks among the people
of Shelby county. His nature bas
been kind, tender and lovable; his
face has always beamed with bright
sunshine, and the people among whom
be bas so long resided will, on the 12th
of June, give expression to their es
teem, admiration and appreciation of
bis character, and their confidence In
bis ability and integrity. As Gov
ernor ol Tenners e, CjI. Looney would
reflect honor upon Shelby coun'y,
which, on account of Its wealth, popu
lation, Intelligence, and it being tbe
mplre connty of West Tennessee,
ought to be allowed the honor of fur
nish log the Governor of tbo S ate
once in a hundred years. Col. Looney
possesses those elements of strength
which will make him tbe itroogest
candidate that can poesibly bs nom
inated, and bo will bo nominated, if
the people of Hhelby county
start him in the eauvars, give him
the indorsement he deserves by pro
claiming to thu people of the State
that we know bim well, and that his
character is absolutely without b'etn
Ish and high above tbe reach of cal
umny and cMmnHon.
rrrii.it Ai'i'itiLN.
So toon ai Gov. Weal, recently ap
pointed by President Cleveland Gov
ernor of Utah, reached Fat Lake,
be visited the penitentiary and prom
ised every Mormon convicted of po
lygamy absolute and unconditional
pardon if they would agree to obey
tbe laws of their country. This wai
wire strategic movement on the part
of Gov. West. It was equivalent to
saying to tbe Mormons that he
wanted to accomplish h's mission by
peaceful methods ; that it they would
nnfetter the people of the Territory
frjm the bondage in wh'ch they were
held ard like other good citizens obey
the laws of their country they
would be pardoned. Gov. West
has tttited right, for bis ut
terances showed that he entered
upon his duties w.th malire toward
none, kindness and mercy for all,
Bat his appeal was futile. The out
laws and culprits that he addressed
indignantly rejected his clemency,
They refused to shut tbe doors on
Utah's sid past and to open them to
bright future in which the people,
like those of other States, obeyed the
laws. Gov. West has alrsads dltov
red that be might as well call upon
the hawk to release its prey or the
falcon to help its quarry to eicspe ai
to induce the Mormons to give
up their customs, their crimes
and their licentiousness. The an
wer which the culprits made
to Gov. West's appeal showed It
was like atklng the bnxzird to cease
hit gorging and live s temperate,
cleanly life. For s generation these
men bave filled themselves to reple
t'on on the unsavory fruits which ex
torted pillsgs has yielded them; their
appetites for the plenteous yields of
robbery have not been sated.but rather
ffhetted by an unnatural gorging
and their lust continually sharpened
by Indulgence, till now they have
grown to consider extortion their
right, and they prefer to suffer a lew
years in prison rather than yield that
submission to law which d prives
them of their ?booly and bounty."
Tbe history of the Mormons furnishes
the darkest spot on the American es
cutcheon, and it must be effaced.
Gov. West hastried peaceful method! ;
they have besn scornfully rejected,
and for the future he will enforce the
law w th that merciless severity wh'ch
sooner or la'er will enforje that sub
nrssion which years of misplaced
kindness failed to secure.
It bas been many a day since any
American citiano has been received in
FogTaad with as much dist:ngu:8lied
consideration as bin been extended to
O iver AVtnddll Holmes during thep-st
week. Fiom the time he landtd '
Liverpool until h;s arrival in Lcnlun
his march has been a continuous ova
tion. He bas reflected boacr up-n a
people proud of such a citizen. Mr.
Holmes's bearing has been mott ad
mirable. It required remarkable tact
and versatility of resources to meet.the
honors showered open bim; bathe
has been equal to every emergency,
and be seems to rise with the occa
sion. "Blessings brighten as thi y de
part," and it is not then-fore turpiis
iog that the aflectionscf tbe Ameiicin
people cluster around the men who
bave reflected honor upon their na
tion, and who are tottering to
the grave. Every year invtits
the life of Oliver Wendell Holmei
with addit'onal interest The
longer Wellington and Humboldt
lived tbe more were tbey loved
and tbe greater tbe grief at their
death. When Holmes, and Wbittier
and Lowell (ball have pasted away
tbe old circle will be broken. Em
erson,' Hawthorne, Longfellow, Bry
ant and Willis are all tie id, and it
seems there are no ready shoulder j on
which their msn'les ran appropriately
full. In New England and in the
Northern and Wettfrro States there
sre mtny bright writers; imny pro
found scholars; but as yet no one has
ghowo tbo genius requisite to lightup
the darkness which will fol'ow the
death of Holmes, the last of the
bright stars tbat have S3 long lighted
up the literary firmsment. It is said
that statesmen and poets come
in rchools. Clay, Webkhr aod
Calhoun followed Jefferson, Ham
ilton and Madion. But it
seems the breed of (talesman
ship bas become extinct and there is
no litera-y (cbool to take the place of
KmertoD, Hawthorne, Longfellow,
Bryant aod Holmes. No wonder then
tbat the American people sre proud of
the bonois lavished upon Holmes in
England; no wonder their affections
cluster around bim as he approaches
the grave so gracefully snd with 10
much serenity. Old fge is creeping
upon bim as ncisele s-ly as the fall of
autumn leaves. Around bim the In
dian summer of life is spreading its
hizs and ere long the leaves will turn
to gold. He has made the most of the
royal gifts with which he was en
dosed. His life bas been a joyous
sang for more than three score years,
and its mutic has gladdened the hearts
of millions of people in the
United S'a'ej nd Eoghnd, where
ha is now the recipient of si many
honors. He has looked oa the bright
side of life; there was always mirth
and cheerfulness in his song; be knows
his work Is tioisbed, but there is no
torrow in h's heart, now tbat ho sees
this beautiful world is putting out its
lights around bim. The end is neir,
and when Ol'var Wendell Holmes
c eaees to live, bis memory will con
tinue and bis words of music will go
ringing down the years, making new
del'ghts for each new generation,
wreathing comforts around the couches
of -the dying, and for all time causing
men to be thankful that such a man
once lived to mako minis tor all tho
generations to come.

A Kegro Policeman Acensed

A simple paragraph in the Ai-ieal
yesterday morairg announced t a
Mary Moiby, a mg-o woman residii g
on (Jlsyetrtet, barf bem arrested, fur
keeping a bouse of asigotin. Inno
cent as tbe parr graph appeared, bow-
ever, it was loaiHa at boib ends and
in the midd e, and if ball the stories
told are true may result in tbe expul
sion from tbs fcrce of a member who
has killed at least two men, and ba
acquired considerable reputa ion as a
gay Lothario. To ether people were
arrested at the tame time, a man snd
a gooC-lookiog young worxan, the
former livirg the name of Billie
Thomas and ihs latter Mary Stewart.
Tbey put up forfeits of $10 each
and did not appear to claim I hem.
lne negro woman, however, wis una
ble to put op s foifeit snd bad to ap

Blocked tbe Conn by announcing that
tier arrest was am to tae sp;ts U IV
trolman T. 1). Jackeoo, colored, be

or Mrs. Stewart toi-ubmit lo his li s.iv

of tbe prisoner to that v.leend, bad
been lutile. Gnog Into details the
wou an said that a me tbree months
ao she rented psit of her honee to
Mr. I homas, who cane i a a bark with
the lady tbe next morning, aid that
he bal visited her regularly ever
since, paying bet 3 50 f ir rent a week.
About a wee a ego jactaun came to
her and offered ber a psir of
shoes to Induce the or j let of bis in
fa -nous regard to submit to his wishes.
(Sbe advised bim to be careful, bnt he
persisted and hounded the place for
hours every day. On one occasion be
succeeded in inducing tbe yourg wo
man to come out under an apf r tree
in the yard and tu'k with him. "What
makes you so pie ty 7" he laid. "Yon
know you a'e pretty and yon needn't
snub me because I am a policeman.
Plenty of white women, aod rich ones,
too, bave listened to me and minded
me. They can't help it." This and a
(treat deal more the woman said, in
and out of court., :l ber statements
going to show t cr (.urprse to make it
plain tbat Jackson had caused her
arrdst aiid tbe arrert cf the man and
woman because be was utalle to suc
ceed In bis full designs. She eaid
toatMiss Stewart was continually in
tear', and on one ore at ion went to
P.esident Hadden's office to complain
of Jackson's con luct, but found that
oflicial absent Tbe m n with whom
Bhe was living had a dispute and came
near having a fight one night wi'.h
Jackioa when be found him hanging
about the premises. Heto.khimin

night, she dec ares, he hung abtut
tbe place until nesily 11 o'clock try
i' g to get Miss Stewart to go with
hiin to a negro tenement close by,
wheie he raid bs mu d ea ily procure
a room. Faidog, he waited until mld
Lig't, when he was relieved by Ofli
cei Sullivan, whom he gave a "pon tor"
about the "asflignaiiou house.'' Tost
officer woke hir up and asked if the e
were cot several women siajing in
tbe bouse who did rot live ttie e.
She said there were cot, and he in
sisted that sje should open the door
ot the adjoining tenement. She de
0 ined on the ground that it was
rdtitsd to other pen in, and she
had no right to do 10, and adv'sed the
officer to kno 'k at the doo', whii h he
did. It was opned by Mr. Thomas,
who was arrested with tho womao

Kanlt of an Analysis of Samples
cat to Waihlnstoa.
Several samples of Mistiseippi wat r
w re recently seat by the Wa'er Com
mit ec to ths Biirgeon-Ge nrrd's c llice
at Wah'nitton C ty for analysis. A
1 t er has just been received Iiom the
(Waal ct-emis, of that department,
from wbich tbe following extract is
taken: "Olc of the botvles in tre

K.)rtunattly the two wbich ariived
without accident were those contain
ing the Miseiwippi water taken from
the stream two miles above Memphie,
and the water fiom three feet b-xow
tha suifice at tbe mou h of Horn

extremely bad character, particularly
that from above the ci y. I have not
in my latx ratory note books a Missis

from near tbe mouth of the paes is
bid enough, but it is so much a bet er
wa'er than the other as to sugpe-t tt at
local ( urrents nny bave modified is
quali'y. Td reduie the impurity of
tne upper simple to tha status of the
lower would require dllut on by aa
equal bulk of pure water. We must,
tiierfore, assume that lceal currents
mar have h d lo do with the a tered
quality." Ihs rep it seems to con
firm viy strongly the views of the
Wetr Committee ard to justify
tbeir conclusioa against the Mis
ssaipii s a s.urce of watr
supply for Memphis. And in view of
the Heady destruction of our "bluffs"
by the abrading current of the river,
and the great anxiety felt by property
owners at its constant encroachments,
merabe-s of the committee insist that
there would be to sifety in establish
ing crs'ly water-works oa its uncer
tain batks where tho eupply would be
liable any tune to iuterrnption and
the works to destruction by the ehift
i:ig of lie currents. For if the b utfa

safe ground near the river? In re
gard 10 the yretter impu-ity of the

suggested I y membiTS of the commit
tee that possibly changes in the cur
rent mBV have produced a wide ecope
of "dead" water in tbat locality, re

is only surmire; there mav bs more
permanent cause for it. This sample

Rtilway Compauy had gained its case
in tbe Supreme Court, sn Appsal
man called on Mr. T. M. crugirs. at
torney for tho company, yesterday,
and afked for any information be
could give in legard to it. Mr. Scruggs
showed tbe repor er the following
telegram :
JtrasoN, Tax.. Mar 2), 1SS6.
Col. R. D. Fraraer. UemrbU:
Upon reading the opinion I find it
very strong for us, covering all the
points of the ease in our favor.
When asked what the points were
Mr. crugir.s said:
The direct points may be (tat'd
as follows: Yon will remember
that tie case was npon an indie meet
for maintaining a noUaace on Jeffer
son street. The State lays the defend
ant, meaning tbe company, entered
uncn Jefl'ereon street for tbe purpose
of conetructicg thereon s street rail
way. That in ro doing it placed ob
structions on said street. The defend
ant company admitted thai it entered
upon tbe street and obstructed
it, but tbat its sole purpose was to
build and operate a street railway
thereon, and that it bad express
authority from the Slate for tbe very
net f r which it was a'ra'goed.
Tbe issue thus made up depended,
of course, for its solution uoon the
effect of the charter oi the Memphis
City Railroad Company, certain con
tracts with the old city ot Memphis
and the decision of tbe Common Law
snd Or aocery Court of Shelby county,
made in 18(iti, all cf wbich was put ia
evidence is a justitii a ion of the acts
of the c. uuany in toirg upon Jeffer
son street aud uuildii g us line tf rotd.
I bave not seen the opinion of the
C3urt; bu', of course, the tesult which
iiia been sent us indicatss very clear
ly tbat the Couit bas dicided all the
point! rait el by tbe cien tbat is, the
rmht of the Mtmphis C ty K.ilroad
Company to go upon any an I all of
the streets of Memphis and construct
its line of road under its charter, con
firming of c urse to tbe provieio.s of
all municipal ordinances within the
authority of the Tax:ng District to
pr-BH. Tne cass most certainly puts at
lest the claim of the Taxing District
that it bas tha right, under pretense
of municipal regulation, to exclude
the MeinphisCity Keilroal Company
from the stiests and give them to
rival companies. It is most prob
able teat the opinioi of the
Court settles practically a 1 the
late litigalkn between the two
companies, sa it nrcaeearily s.-tt'es

Tho secretary's office of the Mer
chants hichange is an artistic gem,
and surpoes anything of the kind in

by Secretary Keeling and his assist
ants has just undergone a magical
transformation at. the hands of a Ireeco
artist from Louisville. The work is
simplv superb ai d mer ts more than
a passing notice. The wa Is are painted
in Pompeian red. At a distant e of
four feet from the ground is a dado of
br ght-col red flowers. Withia two
feet from the ceiling beg ns a

in imitation of beaten brass,
of a rich y flowered design. 8 'rmoui-t-ing

is a border of e-trus an blue of the love
liest imaginable shade, forming a de
lightful contrast to the other colors
employed in the decoration and blend
ing smoothly with the narrow border
of white that separates it from the ceil
ing. The celling is a veritable master
piece. The body of it is of cream
color dotted with star-snped flowers,
and a border of vine like design of
lilac hue forms a graceful frame
for it. Extending from the centrr of
the ceiling to the east end of the ceil
ing facing Second street, a space of
eight feet long by four fect wide is
divided from the rest by a border of
gold, founing an exquis to picture,
re-presenting a tale of love twocupids,
in a tender attitude', airily flirting on
the slender branch of an apple tree in
blossom, whisering the ''old, old

Tribute of Lave
To Little Enima Bo'met, Jo Waddy and loia-
my Ji'jpe Cunnon.
Oo, gentle spirits, to yonr distant homcn.
We do not vet youi errand with us know
Why a kind Heavenly Father bade you come
On your brief mission to a world ot woe.
We do not know the mlasion of the flower
Whose loavea just open to the morning
Show their aweet light for but one fleeting
Then close again, their little duty done.
We know not why the dew, ao aweet and
Rests on the fluwer whose leaves shall fall
ere noon.
Reflecting joyously the morning I'ght
And, oh I we know not why it dies ao aoon.
No fairer flower droops on its lit'le stem
Ihan those which fell before our anguished
Lcht llaehe" on no purer, brighter gem.
Than oura that were borne upward like the
Borne up to meet a sainted mother dear.
Whom Ood called home but one brief year
Bhe leads her jewels to the Saviour standing
He blesaea them and bids them weep ns
Our eyes are holden that we cannot see
The Saviour, though lie join us in tbe
Of our sad wa'k In doubt, and yet 'tis Be ;
And we shall know him when we reachour
Shall know the mission of the apirits bright
That gladdened once this now deserted
Why we were blessed with such a fleeting
And why we now are wrapped In rayless
Shall know it all I bat, oh, to wait se long !
To writhe so long in agony and du.-tl
Oh , Thou, who bids us suffer make ui strong.
Thy plana we can't unravel, help ni trust.

Sirs. Joale Lenow Watkliia.
Di-al at JlrowtumlU, Tenn., April 25, 1886.
Back in he enchanted dayi, in the inno
cence oi ehililhoo-l, I flnt met and aoon
learned to know and love Jon a Lrniiw. The
pleasures and pistimesof those days, with
their imagery ol beauty, return to-night on
the winga ol memory, and I find myself
thinking of the dear, good girl, the wife, the
mothtr now ao r'oeotiy sainted and bleared.
It ia a sad reflection tbat one sn young
must die, but melancholy, indeed, when one
ao good, true, intelligent and lovely in all
tbe elements that go to make up a perfect
woman, an Mrs. Watiiks was, should be
taken in the very bight of ber usefulness,
when she seemed so neoeasary to her family,
Iriends aod church, leaving so many orushed
bearta to mourn her loss.
Mrs. W atkins waa born at Hickory Withe,
in Fayette county, lenoeiaee, in 1844, and
was the dau htr of James and Indiana
Leske I. enow, and nieoe ot Capt. Joseph Le
now. VV hen very young, ber part n Is moved
to Men-phis, and here and iu ibis vioinity
ber He baa been mostly spent. In her early
childhood, the future lively woman waa
foreshi dowe ', an i aa the years passed, her
weet lace, charming manners and eiquisite
form, easily rained for h r a place in the
hearts and affections of all tbat net her.
God bad blersed ber not only with these, but
with an intellect cf a high order, which had
been cult va ed by close application and
Study, and she became tbe equal, it not the
peer, ol her associates, and was well fitted
to take ker place in the social and domestic
circ e.
What waa her life-work, and hi w she fil ed
the measure of her days, ask ol her sorrow
ing Irion'-s tha story of her Hfo. As wife,
mother, daughter, eister, nieoe, neighbor
and friend, she strove byOod'a help to do
her lull duty. She haa left the rich legacy
of hir Ch-istian example, and will always
beheld in dear remembrance.
Bit however beauli ul and useful may
have been her daily lite, it wa more than
equaled, it was surpassed by tha sublime
courage ad resignation with whic ' she met
the Urent Destroyer. Her deur Savior, in
whom sbe trusted when the roteate hue pf
henlth mantled her che as, was her all in
all when disease and pain came With re
signation and aubmission, without murmur
upbraiding, and without a tremor, ahe
calmly awaited the approach of the cold
waters that would hear her lrom earth and
loved onea, and on Kaster Sunday morn, on
the day tbat fa commemorated as the a-cera-aion
ol her blessed Savior, it pleased Him te
oali her spirit from earth to heaven, and she
passed away as oalmly as an infant going to
In her last dyi ahe had the kind minis
trations of her dear aunt, Mrs. Sophia Coch
ran, and other loved ones were ever near to
do all for her that losing hearts could do.
Her gratitude and thanks went out to those
friends in words whose sweet intonations
will linger as long as li'e lasts.
To Ler bereavrd husband, one for whom,
ibe did ao much, being to bim a wile, coun
sellor, rompanion and friend, I offer my sin
ee rest sympathy. His loss and sorrow is not
to be mea U'ed, aud the oe-olation of hia
home ia darker than midnight gloom. For
ber two bo.g, what ia home without mother.
How cold the world seems without her love.
As sbe was always thoughtful, tende-and lov
ing to orphaned onest will not Ood shield her
dear boys, spare their lives and make them
nseful men.
May we not hope tbat her death la a pledge
of transition from gloom to glorv, and that
while her mortal body was being lowered
into tbe grave, her freed spirit reunited with
ether loved ones gone before, was basking
'mid the splendor of heaven's glorie'.
farewell, dear friend I Your troubles and
sorrows are happily over. In a few year! I
mutt follow you. Tautht by your example,
may I meet death aa bravely and triumph
antly as yen did. and age n reunited we can
renew in heaven an unending friendship,
which waa ao ew et and pure on earth, and
to our blessed Savior shall be al1 ihe pra'pe.
