FRIDAY, I AUGUST 18, 1888,
It will be seen from oar special tele
gram from Nashville that Robert L.
Taylor, of Washington county, was
nominated yesterday as the Democratic
candidate for Governor of Tennessee.
The unnatural ami unusual speotacle
of two brothers opposing each
other for a position so exallod
will present a repulsive tableau
to all who cherish the hallowed
momories of chlldhojd, home and
mother. But if the Republicans can
stand a contact so unseomly, so can
the Democrats. East Tennessee claimed
the honor of furnishing the candidate
lor Governor, a claim which was con
ceded by Democrats In Middle and
East Tennessee, the two sections which
furnished the Democratic candidates
for Governor tor thirty-one years,
since 1865 when Andrew Johnson
was elected. And as Bob Taylor made
brilliant canvass for Cleveland in
1884, he was regarded by the conven
tion as the most available man and as
entitled to the honor to which he as
pired. As an ad captandum speaker Mr.
Taylor has no equal In the country.
He is popular with the ma sis and es
pecially with the young men of his
party. 1 1 s will arouse great enthusl-
aam.make a brilliant caavass.and there
can be no question as to his election
by a majority equal to that by which
the Democratic candidates for Bu
preme Court Judges have just
been elected. Having been made the
candidate of the party, the ArriAL
will give him a cordial support and la
bor sealous'y for his election. The
voice of the convention is the voice of
majority of the Democratic party.
It is our voice. We accept the nomi
nation without reserve. The Democ
racy of Toonessee has said that it
wants Col. Taylor to be tho Chief Mag
istrate of the 8Ute, and hs will oertaln
ly be elected to that high and honora
ble position, and he will have evory
Incentive to make a usjful, brilliant,
popular liovernor. The party has now
embarked in tho canvass lor Novem
ber. The political sky is bright, but
we must no', lose sight of possible dan
gum. We must stand together as we
did in the recent county elections and
for Supreme Court judges, as one mnn,

and in every section of the State the
ofllvo seekers, liiaMng upon rails im
provised I-r the occasion, are fighting
in oquitws in the dismal swamps and
chirping like so tunny spring toads:

"It h only little weak minds tint cry
over skilled milk whine over defeat.
In 1K72 ths Djoiocutic majority In
T.ninasje was reduced 30,000. The
Democrat did not a'.ttibule ths retu't
to fraud, bu'.t) the mijtnke of nomi

and whine frail 1. li 1881 the Repul
lictna ma le Wrje gains. Cleveland's
majority was only 8000 and Bate'a
majority 1(bs thtn 4000. The Domo
frits diJ not charge the result to
friui, but tJ the opposition of tho
r.ilroad Icluonc4 on account of the
platform. In 1878 a tidal wave swept
over Shelby county, oo which the la-
deptndenti and Republicans rode into
cfl'ue by a majority nearly equal to
tba' achieved by fio Democrats in tbe
reeeiit election. There was now
frantic howt ot fraud on the part of
Democrats. They attributed the result
to th! ccrrect causa, a split in the
party and a weak ticket. Tbe tabit
of the Rpublirans and Independ
tuts of Tennessee of charging fraud
on!y when they are defeated is shame
ful ; it Is acand.lous, it is disgraceful.
Why don't they imitate tbe example
of Democrats by submitting to the re
sult philosophically, Instead of s'an
daring ..honest man by . howling
fraud T In 1880 a Republican candl
data for Congrats commenced bis can
vas by charging fraud on the Demo
crats. Ha was summoned before the
grand jury, and his evidence proved
him a common slanderer. Mempbis
is lln trading center for an immense
scope of country, and if our people
are perjured villains, bae enough to
csrry elections by fraud, our busi
ness men will be regarded ss no betttr,
and thus the trade of Memphis will
be damiged. The grand jury for
Shelby county will be orgaoized in
September, and a rigid investigation
should be made. Those who charge
fraud aod intimidation should ba
summoned and a searching Investiga
tion made of all the fact!. This is
j int to the defeated candidates and
due to the community and the men
who held the election.
Every Democratic State Convention
held during the year has given the
administration of President Cleveland
a hearty, unqualified and entbnsiastic
indorsement. On Wednesday the
Democracy of Tennessee and Indiana
spoke in no nncertain voice In ap
proval of ' the administration
Whnraver district conventions have
been held to nominate candidates for
Congres?, the same cordial and un
stinted approval has been expressed.
Publio sentiment shows that the
Democratic President is more popular
with the people than the Democratic
Houaeof Representatives, and mem
bers who have been nominated for re
election will make the canvass turn
npon the general approval or dlsap
provalfof Cleveland's a (ministration,
which they know is s'ronger than
themsolves and even the Damocratio
party. It Is no'iceable that tbe Re
publican leaders rocognizi the disad
vantage at which they stand in this
regard, and time of them even incline
to say that they do not think
It would be a good thing for their
party to gain the next Congress.
They have not any prospect of getting
it and the grapes are therefore sour,
There can be no Republican success
with the administration enjoying the
measure of publio confidence which it
plainly has. The talk of the campaign
will be of the tariff, and ths publio
lands, and the taxes and the expendi
tures, with a feeble Republican howl
at the President's vetoes, in a vain at
tempt to prejudice the soldier vote;
and perhaps there will be a mora ex
citing issue of foreign policy if the
Mexican cloud amounts to anything;
but when all these issues are dls
cussed, the deciding question will be
whether the administration is ap
proved; and the united voice of the
Democratic party in every Btale in tbe
Union clearly indicates the universal
popu'arlty of the President. Jack'
son, Polk and Grant had the
confidence and full indorse
ments of their respective paitles.
But Cleveland is stronger than hia
party, for while the Democrats will
gladly make the fall elections turn
upon approval or condemnation of
his administration, he will have tbe
support of good men who care noth
ing for parties only so far as they con
tribute to good government and ad
miuietratlve reform. Men who cara
nothing for olllcei and earnestly de
sire civil service reform see in Presi
dent Cleveland a careful, honest, con
scientious man, and while he is
hated by a few spoilsmen in his own
party, the Democritlc masses are with
him and for blm. President Cleve
land has been beset by many emba"-
rasaments, hut he bos triumphed and
stands bright and beautiful as a etar,
Mbtakeo friends have tempted him,
epoilMii in hava denounced him, parti
sail opponents have tried to Ms his
hands, partisan newspapers have re
viled him, uion who should have sup
ported mm in tho great and ar
duous work he lias undertaken
ha70 , diverted him and tried to
inspire distrust toward him. Of
fles seekers bavs pronounced
him a failure, and offlce?suckeri have
proclaimed him an enemy to their
kind. But with it all, and in spite of
It all, he stands todny where be stood
a year and mora ag), and the people of
the country, Democrats and Republi
cans alUe, recognize him as their rep
resentative above all other representa
tive Americans, and are rangiDg them
solves befiJe and behind 1dm in ever
and rapidly increasing numbers. From
Maine to Texas, and from California to
Florida, the people unite In the opin
ion that Cleveland is the greataet
power in tho land for good.. They
need him far more than he
needs the Presidency. 'They have
bestowed upon him the highest trust
In their gift and be has kept faith with
them. He does not want a second
term, but they know what he has
done, and what he is trying to do, and
they know that no other man can
perforin the same work so well. If
they want the work to be continued
they know who is tbe man to ca-ry it
on, and will call for him In their own
way when his present term is finished
Cleveland would bs a stronges candi
date In 1838 than he was in 1884. In
the Inst conlott Pion'e had to take liHn
on trust, but he would go into the
next canvass witn a record true to ms

The Reasons for This Action The
Palatal Convention at Little
Rock Today.
Uncut to tis irriAL.I
LittmRock, ABK.,AngOHt 12. This
afternoon Col. W. L. Terry startled
bis Little Rock Mends by Binding to
bis brother, W. h. Teiry, here, toe
following message from Hot Springs:
"I am satisfied that injustice has
been done me in Logan county by ex
cluding Terry votes from tne prima
ries, vet. in order to preserve ana per-
netaate harmony in the Democratic
party, l nave conciuueu mat n is nest
for me to withdraw from the race,
There fa no doubt however, but what
Garland county is overwhelmingly for
me and my mends regret to see me
lay down the sword." This news,
wbile it caused universal surprise
among all onr citizens is. at the same
time, applauded by the Colonel's
friends, because it was senerally con
ceded that be would have entered the
for.bcomins convention with sum
cient strength to nominate him, but
for the sake of harmony. lor tne per
petuation of party unity in the dis
trict, Col. Terry has buried fcr the
1 L. 1 1 . V .. 0,
greisman, and says he is willing to
work for the success of Judge Roger
Ha leaves the canvass with
tbe satisfaction of having narrowed
tbe contest down to tbe vote of one
county. No one knew Terry outside
of tbisand one or two other counties
when be declared his intention of
entering the field against Judge
Rogers. He has left behind him a
record for thoroughness of political
details, for organization of forces in
new fields, that is worthy ot emula
tion, and while his withdrawal from
the present raco is highly creditable,
two years, however, will see Terry
march to the front with a phalanx
that no man in tbe district can suc
cessfully battle against. He Is young,
and two years will be a pleasant
breathing spell for hlra. Rogers will
now have no opposition.
The city is lull of delegates to tbe
County Democratic Convention to
morrow. Tonight the friends of tbe
different shrievalty candidates are can
vassing, as also a e thqse Jf-ir other
county officers. Col. Joe Griffith, who
has served in the capacity for a num
ber of years, is a candidate for County
Treasurer. II. E. Gladwell is his op
ponent, and it ia thouuht will be suc
cessful in his effo'ta for the nomina
tion. Col. George W. Oaiutb, a lawyer
of considerable prominence, win to
morrow publish his withdrawal
from the State Becatonal rce
of this county, r ving as his
reason therefor r uiii i engagements
which comnel h m tt i absent irom
the city. It is more nan likely the
Democrats and Kepr cans win ootn
nut out full tickets a i oter the cam
paign with a determination to let the
best man win. Col. Andenon Mills,
Ed Blanks and Will Reaves are the
timber contesting the Sheriff's posi
tion. and are all first ciae, aoie men
but tbe present excellent official, Watt
B. Worthen, will undoubtedly be re
nominated on the first ballot.
today offered a reward of $300 for the
apprehension of Thomas Mull, ths
rich planter, who so unceremoniously
shot down and killed Frank Thomas
at Holly Grove, Monroe county, this
Sta'e, Sunday last. The Sheriff to-day
torwirdul a compute description oi
Mull to the Governor, and says he baa
made every efloit to capture him.
The murderer is one of tbe wealth
iest men in Monroe county, and
killed Thomas, who was an in
dustrious rrechanio, simply because
Thomas asked Mull for pay for the
digging of a well on one of Mull's plan
tations near Holly Grove. Mull is
about 45 yearj of age, dark gray hair,
with a f rink, open face. 1 1 is thought
he Is biding out on one of his plant
lions, and that the authorities will
have little trouble in apprehending
him, now the reward has been ottered
for h's arrest.

200 and 300 meat handlersin the pack

that they were required to load cars

Ever since the strike of the Lake Shore

from the men in the packing houses,
who were regarded as the natural
