What His Fbyaiclsin Tklsk of the
Intereitlna; Csmo Seme later,
eatlasr Ntatlatlr.
Late lest evening an Appeal re
porter nailed at the office of Dr. Alex
ander Eiskine, who baa charge of the
cafe of Mr. C. N. Eirich, and who hai
been the family physician ever since
his marriage. Dr. ErBkine said it was
hia opinion that bia patient would die
within the next forty-eight bonis.
Hib temperature, which was reduced
by the application of cold clotha to
11)1 yesterday morning, bad risen to
104 at 6 o'clock, the cloth having been
removed in the meantime. Ilia res
piration was forty-eight, and there
were various unfavorable symptoms,
unfavorable in spite of the fact tnat be
moved one of his arms at one time,
and on several occasions opened his
eves and looked about I he room as if
searching for eome one.
"1 tie bullet did not pierce ms brain
directly thrt ugh .the center as has
been supposed, said Dr. Erekine, "but
ranged a little to the left. The muzzle
of the pistol was placed directly npon
his forehead and pressed hard, proba
bly by the light hand. His entire right
side is paralyzed is a natural conse
quence o( injury to the left side of the
brain. Whether paralysis followed
immediately upon the firing of the
shot I am unable to say, but had the
pistol dropped from bis band to tne
bed, instantly, still it might have been
thrown upon the floor by bis Strug-
Dr. Erskine said be bad been doing
all in his power to sustain the patient,
and had succeeded in feeding bim
absut half a pint of milk and an
equal quantity of tea, though he swal
lowed with extreme oiflkuliy. The
wound was disposed to bleed'a little
During the course of his remarks,
Dr. ErBkine referred to volume 2, In-
ternationalEnqcloptdia of Surjen,which
under toe neaa 01 i rognoeis, cays:
' Tbe prognosis of these injuries (those
of the sca'p and brain), though much
atiected by tne nature ol the wound,
is always grave. Tbe danger is chiefly
due to merengo encephalitis, which
may be developed at an early period,
or as is more usual after a number of
days, in tbe latter part of the second
week, and is ordinarily, though not
necessarily, associated with an open
wound wben lodgment of a foreign
substance has occurrod and the for
eign body remains. It may prove the
developing cause of brain suppuration
even years after apparent recovery has
taken place, la tne Crimean war 74
per cent, of cranial injuties proved
fatal (711 out of 901), and during our
late war the mortality rate was 59.2
per cent. (2614 out of 4243 cases, the
results of which were ascertained). It
is generally held with Guthrie that a
wound of the anterior part of the
head is more likely to cause
'death than one of the posterior. This
is by no means certain. In the 316
cases of penetration and lodgment
analyzed by H. R. Wharton, in which
279 were gunshot injuries, tbe relative
mortality of wounds through the
frontal, parietal and occipital bones
was respectively, 44 per cent. (58 out
of 132), 46.5 per cent. (27 out of 58),
and 70 per cent. (16 out of 23), while
tbe death rate of those of the temporal
bone was but 33.7 per cent. (12 out of
31); probably because the majority of
these do not come under treatment.
On the other hand, no damage other
than that which is local and temporary
may be produced and ball and even
bone may remain for years in the
brain without doing any harm. Such
cases are, however, but the fortunate
exception proving the rule, and many
times it bas happened that after a
long period of apparent perfect health
death has resulted from tbe pretence
of the foreign body.
At midnight last nigbt Mr. Erich's
condition was not materially changed.
His pnlte was 120, respiration forty
four, temperature 104. Mr. Big. Roe
scher. who was anions the watchers bv
his bedside, told the Appeal reporter
that early in the night be bad spoken
to Mr. Erich in German and tbe latter
opened his eyes and seemed to recog
nize him but did not speak, and al
most Immediately reclosed his eyes
and relapsed into unconsciousness. It
was not thought likely last night that
Mr. Erich will die within the next
twenty-four hours nnlees new symp
toms of ait unfavorable character de
velop themselves.
SalMcrlio far I be "Appeal."
A Very Stale, Flat and Unprofit
able Meeting ob tue Bluff
Last Mglit.
About two hundred darkies went
out on the bluff last night to atsist the
brass band and the bosses in ratifying
tne nominations ci me Republican
ticket. About 500 good and tiue
Democrats', at'iacted by the breeze
and the fl.re of the lampe, went out
to see the fun.
Tbe Hon. W. J. Smith acted as
chairman, and after a few introductory
remarks, introduced 'the speakers:
a candidate for Judge of the Circuit
Court, objected to the advice given by
the newspapers to tbe Democrats to
"do their whole duty. ' lie insinuated,
bnt lacked the conrase to chares mea
ly, that a Democrat to do his whole
duty must be less than bonest end
more than zealous that he must use
all mean1, fair and foul, to elect tbe
ticket put forth by the party. This
was the burden of bis monotonous
song. He laid a great deal of stress
upon the statement that the nominees
of the Democratic party wre his warm
personal friends. He insisted upon
this, as all of the speakers did, evident
ly anxious to borrow some of their
light by reflect'on.
was next introduced, and the band
stole silently away at the firet note of
his voice. Mr. Moss blew his own
trumpet in the most vigorous style for
twenty minutes. He sa d be had been
a practicing attorney in the Criminal
Court for sixteen years, but did not
call attention to tbe fact that
he bad been engaged in
any case of impedance in
that or any other court during all that
time. He denied that be was incom
petent to fill the office and that it
would be a calamity to put him there.
He eaid that if elected he would in
fuse his "young blood" into the court,
and wound up with a brilliant perora
tion of his record as yellow fever hero,
forgetting to mention that he received
f 10 a day for his services. ; -
thomas j, bboqa.; , .
There was no horn to toot an intro
duction of Thomas J. Brogan, except
the home made trumpet of Gen.
Smith. Bat had the entire brass band
been present its music mnst have been
drowned in tbe flare of Mr. Brogan's
private trombone. He said herbal
been a true friend of the workingman
in the Legislature, in fact that he
had made a record which ha and
bis party had reason to- be
proud of. He was not contradicted
when he admitted that he could not
make a speech. Oratory, he declared,
was not his forte. That, be said mod
estly, was hustling hustling over
fields and fences and up back alleys.
Mr. Brogan closed with an expression
of touching regard for his opponent.
If there were two clerks of the Crimi
nal Court to be elected he knew of no
man whom he would prefer to fill the
other than Mr. Capers, but as there
was only one, be preferred .Brogan.
In good c!d camp meeting style
Judge Eldridge thanked the Lord for
permitting bim to appear before so
large and cultured an audience as a
candidate for Judge of tbe Probate
Court. And then the Judge made some
of his old friends in the audi
ence blush for him by hi
praice of his administration of the
office for the past eight yearn. He
promised to give good advice to ail the
widows and orphans who might come
before bim, but forgot to give bis
pledge to go to work and untangle the
vast pile of business which has ac
cumulated in his office land to untie
the red tape and release the money of
the helpless women who have pleaded
for settlements in vain for as long.
Gen. Smith called, for Norris and
Fields, the two darky candidates, and
evidently felt that tbe negroes would
not go away so well satisfied if only
white speakers were beard. They did
not answer, and be named a darky
who was probably selected with the
idea that for prejudice and vindictive
ness, at least, he was worth half a
dozen ordinary colored men Ed
Shaw." This sweet morsel,' however,
was saved to the last, that mountain
ol neeii,
firtt addressing the crowd. He said
be did not have anybody (o thank.
Tbe newspapers had chewed his ears
too vigorously to arouse any great
amount of gratitude, and as for the
independent ticket, be would not allow
his name to be used on it, and he
sneered at the Republicans who bad.
lie said a great many flings had been
made at him, bnt consoled himself with
the proverb that "chunks are never
found in the branches of sour apple
trees." He was a good apple, he de
clared. In a word, anyone willing to
take Mr. Haynes's word for it must
have beim convinced that be waa a
lawyer of ability, of great ability, in
fact. He wanted it distinctly under
stood that be was acquitted of the
charge of violating tbe law by keeping
a pool room, and he concluded
with a ringing indorsement of
Blaine and tbe entire Republican
party. Except for tbe Republican party
be declared this would not be a free
country today. In thus thundering
forth the fact that he was a Republican
and tbat be claimed the office on that
around, he was more bonest than bis
brother candidates, who put their poli
tics in tbe background and argued sim
ply that they were better men than
their respective opponents.
The jamboree closed with a typical
tirade of vindictive abuse by Ed Sbaw,
who hopes to ride on the topmost
wave after August, and will do so nn
lees tbe Democratic party presents a
united front.

Gbntlbmbn The action taken by
tbe Memphis Water Company through
their author ized officers, in making to
your honorable body a proposition re
lating to (he question of a water sup
ply for your city and the subsequent
action of your body in aipointing a
committee to take action in the mat
ter, forces us to come before you sooner
than we had intended or anticipated.
We have organized in your city a
water com t any for the purpose of sup
plying to the city of Memphis and to
its inhabitants and adequate supply of
good, wholesome water, Ut for all pur
pores of domestic, consumption. The
said company is composed of and rep

We propose to prepare and submit
for your scrutiny and approval a set of
plans showing and governing the con
struction of eaid system of works, and
to aak at the same time from your
city government suco'concession and
encouragement as will euable us to
proceed at once wth this construc
tion. The proposition wo snail make to
you will contemplate tbe furnishing
of a system of works, built upon sucU
Beale, and of such capacity as will am
ply stiftlce for a city of at least twice
the present size of Memphis. We will
also propose to operate the said
works as a private company for a term
of years, or to give to the city the op
tion to become sole owner of same by
Bui h terms of purchase as may be
greed upon, and to submit to
the city tbe right of determin
ing, under tbe provisions ol our
charier, tbe source ffom which the
supply shall be taken.
Tbe magnitude ol tne undertaking
and the dillicult problems brought for

time to complete, we uavo now a
corps of engineers in the field ongaged
in their preparation and at tbe earliest

tem of water supply in accordance
with the foregoing.
Provided, that wben such consum

Hill A Wilkerson, Memphis:
Impossible for Mr. Bollock to be in
Memphis before August 1st, Would
prefer, if possible, to have petition
presented and csntinued until August
15, or thereabouts. Answer.
President Latham, of the Memphis
Water Company, said he was glad to
know his friend Mr. Hill had advanced
surlicient'y in his study of hydmillcs
to learn that it would requiie 1,500,
000 to build new and ample work,
but it surprised him to heir Mr. Hill,
of all others, prorosinu to I ring water
fror Wolf river, a Mrcatn which was
being abmed by the w hele city. Kg
then read the following:
To th LegiMnrlr Council of the Taxing
District ot bhsluy County, Tenn. :
On the Nth instant the Council ap
pointed a conference committee to
con&ide? tbe question:
1. As to tbe city's ownership of
water works, anil should that te de
cided in the negative, then
2. How best to secure an adequate
supply of clear, wholesome water?
iDe report oi tnai committee is De
fore you.
1. That tl'e Council consider a prop
oeition from the water company to sell
its plant to the city.
It will be remembered that this dis-
cnis'on arose tbree years ago in the
city press, which was undivided in its
advocacy ot city ownership. A later
and more direct expression is seen in
the appointment, one year ago, of the
cornnoi)tee of ten citV.ens. stills! rongar
evidence is found in the unanimous
report of eaid committee, made eix
months ago, and which, to far as 1 am
alvicl, is unexcepted to. In oft re
rented interviews, during the hut year,
with members of the City Council and
of tbe Citir.ens'Oommittee,I have heard
no other sentiment expressed. Indeed,
it is generally known that tbe city pro
poses to ask for the necessary authority
on tbe assembling of the Leg'slature.
But no decisive action having been
taken, I deemed it due alike to the
public and to the water company, for
reasons stated before you on the 8th
Inst., to respectfully ask such action
in the premises as would secure an
authoritative decision. I fully under
stand that the Council must have
additional autbority from the LegUla-
ture. Hut "where tnere a will,
there's a way." I assume public sen
timent to be practically undivided. It
is certain tuat puDiio connuence
in the ability of the Council
to drive close tradee is justly
unbounded. If the Council, after
the most i searching investigation
into the value of our plant, which we
unreservedly invite, shall agree on
terms with tbe water company, cannot
a plan be devised for gnaranteeing the
action of the Council until the meet
ing of the Legislature ? I suggest here
no details, but several plane occur to
me. Uertalnly the public has that
much faith in the city and in the
Council. If the Council agrees with
the Citizens' Committee and is satis
fied tbat public sentiment is in favor
ot city ownership, let it select 'without
delay two experts, and tbi water
company will select two, the four to
chooeo a fifth, and we will accept the
price they fix', as provided in our
charter. It is not for me, a party in
interest, to advise, but it may be per
mitted me to add :
1. The people will not in my opin
ion be satisfied until they own the
water supply.
2. II the works are pi oil table to ttio
water company, why not more so to
the city? !
ibe salary ol M president and per
haps others could be saved ; the city's
sower inspector could at same lime
inspect tbe water service, and with an
authority tbat would control a waste
greater then the lftitimat consump
tion, thus saving in salaries, pay rolls
and fuel thousands of dollars annually.
Should ths Council decide not to own
water works, the said Conference Com
mittee recommended :
3. That the city and water company
consider a now contract, based on an
abundant supply of clear, wholesome
water. Much a contract we are ready
to make and proceed with without
delay, should the first recommendation
fail. I bespeak the BeedieBt action,
consistent with due deliberation, and
a proper regard for the public interest.

The Conttitutiotv complains that tho
Brown House declined to auooiutno
date the Atlanta Baseball Club. Said
club did not make application to be ac
commodated, but if they had done so
I certainly would have refused to en
tertain them on account of. the out
rageous and disgraceful conduct mani
fested by thorn u two former occa
sions. Beyond this no further expla
nation is necessary. I endeavor to
provide for the ccmfoits of the guests
of the Brown House on all occasions,
and in the case of tbe Atlanta club I
could not, in justice to the reputation
of this hotel, have considered a propo
to lodge them. Jtospsotfully,
