Lord Salisbuat initiates h's admin-

angnrate a policy of coercion in Ire

by the appointment of fir Michael

Ireland, have determined to preserve

Tennessee, wh-ra be hs a host of
warm personal friends. His recent
visit to tbe old home of 1 is family,
with which hjsname ii liict'rically
linked, had the effect of rousing an in
terest in his canvass that he did not
look for, in viw of ttie fact that thera
were so many candidates for Governor,
and the people of that part of the
State arc tenacious in their friendships.
But be found a number of influentia'
men who were not tied to any candi

By tbe death of Hubert O. Thomp

publish on soother page, the New

shrewdest and safest of their leaders,
a man of character, of the cour
age of his convictions and
an opponent to any but legal
and lawful methods. He was the
leader of the County Democracy tbat
confronted an defeatedd Tammany in
the Chicago Convention, and that car
ried New York for Cleveland, notwith
standirg a tecretly organized Demo
cratic opposition. He was still a yaung
man when called away, with possibili

would have tatisfkd the most ambi

that Mr. B. M. Stephenson is the one
of their cumber who can, with the
V oited'oppoitot .he DeiuocrAlic party,
make a successful race against the
Republican candidate, Dr. Lewis, who
relies upon the Republicans for sup
port. These referees canvassed the
whole fluid, each in the interest of his
client, and finally decided upon Mr.
Stephenson, who is well qualified for
the place by character and attain
ment. This is an excellent example
for the Democrats everywhere to fol
low. Unless the Democratic vote is
concentrated upon individual candi
dates the Republicans may be ex
pected to achieve victories.
Jodgk Livingston, by retiring from
the candidacy for Chancellor of the
Tenth District, has sit an example of
patriotism mat is now a days very
rare among public men. His chances
were considered qu ts as good as were
thoss of Judge r-omers and he was
much more popular, but he said that,
with a Republican ctndidate in the
field a victory fjr him or Somers was
impossible, ho therefors volantari'y
surrendered his part of the field and
retired from the contest. This
makes Somcra' election certain
and prevents a divis'on of
the party tbat v.ry likely wou'd
have extended in every direction and
opened a way for many Republican
victories. Jude Livingston id by the
beet lawyers esteemed one of the
ablest Chancellors in the State, a
model man and a pains taking, con

temporary, the Knoxville Tribune, is
so persistent in pushing the proposi
tion of a caucos of the del- gates for
East Tennessee to the Gubernatorial
Convention for tbe purpose of agree
ing and uniting upon one from among
the several Candida' es now offering
ici Governor in thtt section. , We re
gret this because, as wa have before
stated, it will impose a precedent upon
thn pirty fatal to tbo pnrpose which
is had in view by ho'ding conven
tions. It might eventually lead to tbe
holding of conventions by the Demo
crats of each of the grard divisions of
the State atd would end in breaking
up the convention sy tern, which, let
us say, notwithstanding is admitted
defects, is the beet devised for the se
lection cf nominees. No nominee
need fear fair play in a 8tate conven
tion. Whatever h's strength may be
it will tell for itself, and whatever the
chant of effecting for biro, a junction
wi'h tha delegates of Inn favored can
didates it better be do ;e in the

general desir of a'l the rVemtOD to

They had under confidmat on the res

and states tbat there is no ground for
reopening the case, which was fully,
fatrly and neatly decided by the Mux-
lean Mixed Commiesicn a' d tbe
award of the umpiie, Sir Edward
Thornton, and it is teyond tbe power
of Congrats to reopen the matter. A
majority of tbe annate com-

believed that the Secretary of Sta'e
wilt nevertheless piv out another in

Covington, Tcnn., Jnly 29. The
Democratic convention tbat mat here
today nominated Dr. A. L. Klcan, of
Tahernaole, for the. Hons of J.V,.'.(-J
sic.an, and one of the brainiest and
moet popular men in the county. His
nomination is the best that could have
been made and will add strength to
tbe ticket. Several other names were
before the convention, viz.. Joseph
Townsend, of Covington, formerly of
It )we, Townsend fc Creighton, of your
city: Virginius Kimbrougb, of Atoka;
J. H. Shinault, if Ebeneez-r; James
Dunlap, of Wright's Store, and James
H. Bringle, of Uenter. On tha hist
ballot Mr, Kimbrough led by a very
handsome vote. The race soon nar
rowed down to Glean and Kmbrongh,
tbe others being withdrawn in the in
terests of barmony. A deadlock being
apparently threatened, Mr Kimbrougb
witudrew uis name and mads a Hearty
speech, pledging bjs support to tbe
Delegates were then appointed to
tbe various conventions. The fight
between the Phelan and Harris men
came on in the selection of delegaies
1 1 theajongresiiona! Convention. Mr.
N. W. Baptist, an avowed Harris man,
moved tbat a committee of three be
appointed by the chair to select the
emne, whereupon Dr. M. Bell, a Phe
lan man, moved in lieu that each dis
trict select a member from their num
ber to appoint or select tbe delegates,
which, sit -r a bented discowion, was
carried, and a delegation of 126- se-
locte L of whom more than 100 are
outspoken Phelan men. After which
Or. Bell moved that the dulogation he
inalructed to cast the vote of Tipton
for James Phelan, which motion whs
hid on tho tabla altr a lengthy dis
cussion by Miss's, uaiilist ami (San-
f rl, opposing ins net ton?, and Messrs.
M. aungandG. W. on itlieal fav
oring:! e same. The Uanis men sc
knowk Iged in their speeches tbat
there was a very g.eat and rig
orous position to Mr, Hnrria in this
counts and that his frienda were
"largo! In the minority," and oa this
ncrount Col. Wm. Kanford plead with
trie convention to p-otect this minori
ty fiom the grasp of the majority,
which was able to take care of them
selvrB. But withjall tho able and in
genious efforts of the Harris men to
prevent Instructions, tbe met sure
wonld have been carried with ea'e,
but for the expectation of many of tbe
membera of the convention that there
would be other candidates before the
convention, and in all probability one
from our own county.
After tbe adjournment Air. fhelan
was serenaded by tne uovinuton
strirg band, and from tbe gallery of
oi tbe Clerk and Master's office he
acknowlndcrod the comnlimsnt in a
short and graceful speech, in which he
addressed himself more especially to
tbe young Democracy of the county,
with which be claimed to he fully and
thoroughly identified. lis speech
was well received and vnciforonaly ap
plauded by tbe larga and cntbus astic
crowd which tbe mo si 3 and speech
t ad hurriedly called together. If Mr.
Phelan does as well ehewhere as in
Tipton, there will be no trouble to se
cure bis nomination. The lowest esti
mate made by his frienda of bis
strength in this "uninstracted" dele
g t on Is 101 out of the 126, while
o hers claim even more than this. Tbe
peop'e "f Tipton were not fully settled
on Mr. Phelan nntil yesterday, when
a great many came out pronouncedly
fur him, ana manifested an enthusi
asm very gratifying to his frienda.
