In my report to t'ae court at the
April term there was outstanding
warrants against the county amount-
ina to 21.153 63. There has been is
sued during the quatter ending June
30, ISNi, 137,117 S3 have been re
deemed and canceled, witn anotu
$S500 now in the hands of A. J. Har-
rir, Trustee, redeemed during the
month of June, but have not been
turned over as yet for cancelation,
leavine a balance of about 3;,ij0slul
outstanding against the county.
Th's burg the tuns ol tlm vear
when but little revenue is raid iuto
the treasury except on iiriviltgcs, I
am glad to fay that our d's'?ursetueuts
for Ihe quatter.ln propailion io tua
amount of receipts, are much lees
than could have been expected, espe
cial! v when we tike into consideration
the fact that the disbursements have
bem enlarged by the ruymeot of
claims unusual in the regular chan
nel cf bueinetR. Of the'amount that
hts aided in the increase ( f dirburae
tuenta for tbe quarter, I will state that
we have paid abmt jjoou to asses-
eore, raid J1H0 7 to me Taxing
District for paving f opiar street irom
Main to the alley. We have paid
nearly 116,500 cost and attorney's lees
in the Norton case. With the inciease
of (alary of the chairman, Poorbouse
Committee, ovetseer and guards at the
Workhouse, a continuous coon ot four
teen days of the April tenn and tbe
appropriation of a Inrge imount cf
claims against the, county that should
not have been paid until tnis term ot
the cr.utt, our disbursements have
been very reasonable.
I would most respeMf .illy call your
attention to another matter that I con
ceive to be ot fomo importance to the
cauniv. The item of irsurarce rn
county property. I tind tliat the
courthouse has been placed in vari
ous companies. The 1'oorliouse has
! , Workhouse $ , Pesthonse
, all placed in good emtpatiirs.
On examination I tind that tha
Countv Jail has ie?er been covors d
by any insurance. Why it t:as net
beau. I am unable to sty. As it is
as near titeprcof as any building in
the city it may have been unneces
sary bv mv predecessors to have
it iiiBuied. hut it Is a lino and
valuable building, and one that
cut the county a very large amount
ci money, i am oi opinion iimi. u
small policy, say $25,000, should be
plr ced unon it. It never haviua been
insured, I felt it my duty t3 tall yi nr
attention to it, end submit it to you for
your considt ration, to determine as to
the expediency ol piaciHir some in
Rurncs on it. It can be insured in
th best companies at one per cent,
While on the question of insurance,
1 wish to siy that wo are paying a per
ct nt. cn all our policies on tue court
house. I think this rate much too
high, as it is leas liable to danger than
other property in the city covered by
a It s.s rate. The building is
guarded, and as we keep a night
watchman both winter and summer,
it teems to me that we should get
better rates. Howcer, 1 am assured
by some of tbe companies that if tbe
county should furnish rs own waior,
as contemplated, by means of a well
proparly arranged f jr the distribution
of water, that the rates of insurance
win tie reduced as soon as iobi is done.

The railroad problem just now is
dillictilt of solution and increaaesin
interest. Negotiations are nnw pend
ing between the Memphis, Birmipg-
ham and Atlantic ranroau nun ttm
Georgia Pacific, looking to a consoli-
uation ol the two roads, so as to mmi
a continuous line from Memphis, uy
way of Birmingham, to Atlanta. A

giving us tho most direct route
to the coal nnd iron fields of
Alabama and to Atlan'a.t he capital ciiy
and railroad center of Georgia. It is
well known that the Georgia Pacillc
and Georg'a Central comitituto rival
SBtomp. The ( orgia Central system
is now at Good Water, within about
6fty miles of Birmingham. The Kan
pas City company has already begun
the construction of its road westward
from Birmingham and it is understood
that a large foroe is now at work on
this line. The road of the Gaorg a
Pacillc runs west from Birmingham,
about torly-llve miles in a direct
line of Memphis. It thus appears
that the Kansas Oily Company paral
lels Us road for that distance out of
Birmingham. Tho outcroppings all go
to show that the Kansas City Com
pany and the Georgia Central ayatem
look to a close alliance, while, on the
other hand, the Memphis, Birming
ham and Atlantic Company and the
Georgia Pacific will consolidate. To
accomplish this it is only necessary to
extend the road of the former com
pany the distance of about 100 miles
east from Tupelo. It is moro than

THE C0)ILr coFLicr
A Sernion by the Rev. Or. Mahon or
the Central MethodUt
The Rev. Dr. Mahon preached a
power'ul sermon nt the Central
Methodist Church last Sunday morn
iogon the "Duties ami Responsibiiitios
of Civil Ollicere." His text was: 1.
Sam. xv, 13, 14. "And Samuel came
to Saul; and Saul said unto him:
'Blessed be thou of the Lord. I have
performed the commandment of the
Lord.' And Samuel said: 'Wbat
meaneth then tha bleating of the sheep
in mine ears, and the lowing of the
oxenhichI hear?' "
Wo are commanded to render
obedience to the powers that be," Dr.
Mahon began, "lor they ordained oi
God. Loyalty then is a Christian, for
it is through good government that we
are enabled to lead quiet and peace
able lives, and to worship God un
molested. As Christians wo are
earnestly exhorted in the Scriptures to
pray for our mlera.that they may have
wisdom and discretion, nml that we
ourselves may ooioy freedom. 1 de
plcra the habit which is fur too pre
valent among uh in this tieo country,
of speaking disrespectfully of inagia
tratea and other civil cliicers. Men
in otlicial position are not indeed
ubove criiic's.u, but they should be
and their adminislra'ion critici'ed with
the respect due the representatives of
law. Whenever a people learn to es
teem lightly law through a cjntempt
for thorn! who aro appointed to admin
ister it, then look out for oppression
and injustice- ami all manner of frauds.
We are to apeak I ulayfora littla while
on 'The Ihities and Responsibilities
of Civil Ollicors.' 1 do not rut at ti
be preauuiptuons in dictating advite
where it is nit needed. We all are
interested in good government and in
the choice of our rulers?. I have select
ed Snul. the li t Hi King of larael, as one
wboee oflicial character is pertinent to
this occasion. Saul was cnosen King
chiilly because of his commanding
personal appearance. He wan head
and shoulders above all tho tribes of
Israel. Notwithstanding his tine phys
ique, I here were defects in his charac
ter that utterly disqualified him for
being a prince. Many a man is
with but litt'o regard to hia qualifica
tions. He lc.oks well or is glib cn t he
tongue, is full of humor, and is withal
atollvgood Ifllow and treats. Ann
enough throw up their hats and vote
for him to elect liim. Sometimes one
who is utterly disqualitled for want of
true manhood and principle is in
vested with public cilice simply be
cause be beloiiL'fl to this or that politl
cat party. 1 do not declaim againBt
political parties, They aio useful.
In fac. I inn scarcely eee how the
country could be managed without
these pirty lines. Political parties, I
do not doubt, scuro the election of
good men to cilice, and iusuru a wise
udiiiiniNtration of the laws. One party,
advocating certain principles ol gov
ernment, keeps
on tbe other, and by this means (he
interests of law and good government
are greatly promoted. In connection
with his party afliliation a candi
date should iireaent qualification
for tho ollice. Political parlies should
see to it that none but suitable men
are advanced for the suffrages of tho
people. No man should be installed
nto a plane ot public trust who is in
citmme. iNtitiier bhouiu any nun un
ti ollice who is not honeat. MohI pub
lie officers have to handle money that
does not be'ong to them. Only a man
cf clean hands should be intrusted
with such responsibility. How many
estates have been
who crept into publlo ollice by fair
promises and Haltering speeches. It
ton often hannens that those who were
olected to be tho guardians oi sacred
trusts u'o every advantage to cheat
and steal. Remember that when you
go to the ballot box and voto lor put
lie oincers you are appointing men
who are to be charged with tbe man
agement of your affairs and that of
your chi'dren. A chief element in
the character of a public servant
should be iustice or the disposition to
execute the law and do right, This is
better than wisdom. It is bet'er than
oiatory, or a lino appearance. The
man who will do right in the face of
oppoaition, and stand to it though the
Heavens lau, is wonn ma vtuignt m
gold, and is worthy to be a kin
though lie may never get a voie.
bo was so overcome with a sense of
his littleness and inability that he ran
oil and hid himself id the Max, which
bv the way, is tho very lust instance
on record of a man lleeingfroma noml
nation or an election of himself to
ollice. No sioner had Sunt got a taste
of power than he became imperious
and haugl ty and proud and jealous
and I reali? believe had occasiona
lite of insanity ,the result of inordinate
ambition. It Is strango lo Hto tne oi
led that a little authority sometimes
has on men. They get to think that
the whole country belongs to them
Elect a plain farmer a squire, and at
nnmi ha becomes the most conseiiuen
till person in the neighborhood in his
own eyes Tbe Chairman of a County
Court will hardly give the road for the
Governor. Saul's treat defect was a
diereiranl for law. He had sen
enough, and courage enough to march
nt the head of his armies, but
he lacked the law loving piinciple,
He studied policy rather than pnnci
pie. lie could stand under a
but he could not rosist the appeals of
public sentiment. Once be was sent
on a niiiitary excursion with orders to
annihilate the Amalekites, a trouble-
simo tribe that hovered on the bor
dera of Israel. On his return Samuel
the prophet, inquired of him if ho
had unedited the orJer. Ho declare
that ho had. Whereupon Samiiol in
ouired. 'What meanett the bleattn
of the Bheep and the lowing of oxen
in mine ears?' Saul had fallen npon
the spoil, and bis apology was that the
nnnn n demanded it il him and n
had yielded to pacify them, but that
he intended to sacrifice these animals
to tho Uird. Samuel responded in
words that ought to be written over
the gateways of justice everywhere,
'Behold, to obey is better than sacri
fice, and to hearken than the fat of
tarns, for rebellion is as the sin of
witchcraft, and stubbornness ia aa
Iniquity and idolatry.' This same
species of demagoguery has tainted
the administration of many an un
faith'ul otlicer Bince. The people!
Some arrant demagogues are forever
Kxnresaing their love l irthe people,
while good men know tliat it ia their
own unworthy stxvut
that they seek to promote, and not the
interests of tbe people. A man
charged with authority can beat serve)
the interests of the people by modest
ly and fuithfu'dy executing the law. It
is by a h'L'h regard for law that a ruler
proves himself worthy cf his place.
l.vcry public officer among us takes
an oath to execute tbe laws pertaining
to his ollice, and tbe man who for
bribery, or cowardice or any other
reason declines to do it is guilty of per
jury, and is no longer worthy of pub
lic trust. New York City eit a i-ood
example tho other day when, through,
the cotitt, a striped suit was put upon,
a former alderman of Hie ci't and
he sentenced ti a term of years in the
penitentiary because he took bribes.
If an officer or judge finds that he
annot conscientiously execute the
law, then let him resign, and if he
ill not, let a law loving and a law
abiding people compel him to do it
on tho tirat provocation. It ia not for
executors of tbe law to ray that is op
pressive and therefore must needs be
suspended. Mercy, if it ia deserved,
provided at another quaiter.
the other day to read in the AeriAL
that perhaps 200 persons mako their
ving In this city by gambling, and as
many more by telling liquor without
cento. Hub may bo true or it mar
not; 1 do not know. If it is, it is a
aid commenUry on our courts nnd
urles. That 400 people should live
in the broad daylight of a city like
onrr", uiunturni'd in tne open ana
instant vio'ation of tha laws of the
and, is a HMt'er for serious re-
ection by a I gcod cibzens, and
bad oil' s. too, ft r that. Under our
aw gambling is a felony. A man has
no mom right to keep a cam!) nig
house in Memphis than be has to keep
hoiro !o receive Btolen goods, And
say Initherthat no officer or court,
aa any mors right to giant a lUene
to keep n gambling house, or
as a privilege Ux upon any euch busi
ness, or in any way give countenance
to it, i ban Ihev have to license a house
to receive stolen goods. The fact '.bat
le offense is different makes no dlf-
re nee. We want good laws and trno
aud honest men to execute them. If
any law seems unjust or oppressive,
let it ho repealed. Until It is, every
man should feel himself to be in some
measure responsible for :ts faith
ful execu'lon. 1 d not spesk

any party, l n eak n the in

The greatest daryor to our free Amer-
an institutions n nt this point. De
signing demagogues who appeal to the
unsuspecting classes, or who promise)
leniency to the .lawless are ever ready
to slip into cfliie. It behooves every
good eltiieu to keep a jealous eye on
the cihcds ol the pimple, and, wnuo
they are regarded with all due respect,
they should be held to a riiiid account
