Tho Clearing House rt potts for last

8.4 per cont., as sgaim-t a year ago.
Thus we have another week's confirm
ation of the steady improvement that
is going on io trade. The increased
doruaud for money confirms the indi
cations of the clearings. Money, say i
Clio Chronicle, has Icon active and
legitimately tending upward. Loaniat
the Exchange lunged from 1 to 20 per
cent, averaging about 7J per cent.
Scarcity end manipulation caused
the higher rato, and ths lower camo

the days were supplied. The hanks
loaned on call generally at 5 per cent,
for old loans, renewing at 0 por cen'.
At Iiobton money ruled at 7) por cent,
between banks, and 0 to 10 to brokers.
There wes a movement of money from
New York to tho Wtet and South.
Ihu embezzlements and enieide of

account of the offerings of

the large purchases of bread

low enough to enable Imports of
gold, to "bo profitably made, and on
Friday, Bays tho Chronicle, $4,125,000
of specie were in transit from London
and Paris for New York, and proba
bly other amounts. The Chroniclt
adds: "Hhlppora of poll have ape-
rienced difficulty in gutting the motel.
Notwithstanding we have this season
so recently sent to France American
bars and full weight rain, neither of
these can now be secured in Pari, and
bankers have to bo content with such
foreign coin as can be procured in the
open market, It is also reported that
the Bank of Kigland has resisted the
-tiiovntent from London by advanc
ing the price of gold bars instead c(
putting up the rate of discount, and
therefore tho profit) on gold ship

The rated discount in the opsn mar

yesterday; the street rats at Paris was
2 for cent, and at Berlin and

KKNATOR I ft II 4. H O. If A Kill.
We have had no communication
with Senator Ilarri, personally or by
letter for eight months and know noth
leg of his future plans. It will be seen
from the communication published in
another column, over the signature of
"An Old Democrat," aud written by a
gentleman who has the confidence of
beusttr Harris, that bis candidecy far
a rf -electiou to the tienate depend, on
contingencies. There Is no niaa in,
Tennessee who has more of the con
fidence and a flections of the piople
than Senator Harris. Ho has earned
this tru-t and love by years i f faithful
public service. The war made upon
him by those anxioue for his place,
without knowing whether or rot
he will be a candidate, does
not comport with the sentiments
of the people of Tonneseeo who, if they
poueeis one trait cf character above
and beyond all ethers, it is fidelity to
the men they have so long truftnd,
and who have proved true as the needle
to tho pole to their intero-ts. No man
in the United states Senate stands
highor than Ishsm G. Harris, and he
cannot bs driven from the councils of
the nation by a war on his record or
by the contemptible charge that he is
growing old, when thore are a do.'-n
men iu the flenalebls eonior, kept there
becanse, like him, they have served tho
people usefully and ably. In lKTlia
similar effirt was made to crush Sena
tor Harris. When his namo was pro
posed in the Democratic State Conven
tion as elector for the Stalo nt lu'g
the same set that are now traducing
him raised then, as now, a preconcert
ed howl against hitn. Kunotor Harris
refused to accept tho position of
olector tendered under r.iich ciicuin
B'ancps, forwarded bis resignation
lion to tho Democratic Executi vo Com
raitteR,annoanced himself a candidate
for tbo United HUtos Senate, canvsewod
the State and ws elected Cnited State1
Senator without opposition. Such a
man ought to be permitted to retire
with the honor ho has won and
which is his rightful due. One thing
is certain, he cannot be driven into rn
tiracy by the methods adopted by
those who aro anxious for bis shoes.
When Senator Ilorris sees proper to
retire he should be pormitted to end
his oventfal public career of spot
less integrity, eminent usefulness and
nnswerving fidelity to every public
trust, a broad statesmanship that
embraced not only Tenneseeo, but the
welfare and honor of the wbolo coun
try, not as a repudiated public servan',
but one who carries with him the lovo,
admiration and grittitudo of the peo
ple lie has so faithfully served.
The activity which is Been and felt
throughout the South indicates a pro
gressive prosperity unsurpassed by
any soction of the Union. Notwith
standing there Is still a bit'er feeling
of hatred in the North toward the
South, the press in that section is
forced to admit that the South is expe
riensing a tide of proepoiity such as it
has never before known. The btiM
nens depresiion, which has prevailed
lor a few years pwt tliroogh the East
ern and Central States, has hardly
been folt in the Southern belt. A con
siderable part of the accumulated, idle
c-pital In tho North has sought in
vestment in the South, the conditions
being such that it could bo put to
profitable uses there, and tbo result
has hern a development in various di
rections, certain and steady, that has
put a new face on the prospects of
largo communities. Every South
ern State is making known its
resources with the view of securing
the Idle capital of the Nottu seek
ing Investment in the Sou'h. The col
umns of the Arrnat,, which for forty
six years has championed the political
and maUr'al interests of the Southern
people, are still open to tho people of
the surrounding States who wish to
make known their resources, their in
ducements for capital and immigra
tion. It will bo seen from another col
umn that T. F. Sorrells, a prominent
lawyer and citizen of Pine Bluff, Ark.,
ho undo'takon the task of writing np
the rich, prosperous section in which
he lives. Mr. Sorrow's letters will not
be tho utterances of a real estate agent,
a land speculator who I advertising his
business. They will be Inspired solely
by a dteire to promote tho general
prosperity of the community. And
Memphis ia deeply interested in this
prosperity for Pine Blnfl and
the rich country in which it
is located contribute, largely to
the business prosperity of Memphis,
and with new railroad facilities Mom
phis will be the natural trading center
for this immense scope of country tin-snrpas-H'd
on the lace of tbo globe for
riebneea and varied productiveness.
Everything seem) to be working for
the future prosperity of the Sonthnd
asnreeign of iu new energy and
growth is the rapid extension and im
provement of railroad facilities. There
are seven trunk lines cf railway now
building or contemplated, aggregating
1800 miles, and since 1SS0 over 10,000
miles of new railroads have been built.
Capital from the North and from Eng
land is seeking this kind of invest
ment, and probably the opinion that
the next twenty live years is to see a
development in tho South rivaling that
of the West is not more sanguine than
sagacious. Already there is a strong
current of emigration setting toward
the Southern fc'tatts from the whole
Northern section. Many farmer, are
moving from the Northwest, tempted
by the cheapness of good land, not
lees than by the goniality of the
climate. It can hardly be doubted
that today the Sauth aflords tho most
promising opportunities for iung
men ir the older States who seek less
crowded fleldf.

twsnty miles and lias to be perfernud
in a biat. Mr. Throop had an adven
ture on this joutnoy which be will
not eoon forget. With a boy for a
companion and guide, be started for
the church at this point yesterday af

carrying bis boat around the rapids of

Throop thrught it would pr.sh right

Knowing that guides weie constantly

and both fell fast asleep, A guiito

with a boat load of bag:sge, reached

his keen eye detected something nn

and startled the guide wMi a frharp

noon that set the machinery in motion
at the Minneapolis Industrial Exposi
tion. The ceremonies there that
opened the Exposition were long. In
stead of giving the signal at 4:30
o'clock, Etatern time, in accordance
with a previous arrangement, it was
after 5 o'c'ock when Mrs. C evoland
touched the telegraph key in response
to the word "ready" from Minneapo
lis. The delay spoiled the afternoon's
fishing trip of the President's party.
The President laughed good natnredly
when a invssags was finally receiveu
from Minneapolis saying: ''Only a few
minutes longer one more speech "
Sitting down in a chair on tbo hotel
piezia, he smoked bis afternoon clwr
and talked with such of the guests as
had not none oil with the picnic party
to a neighboring pond. Mrs. Cleve
land strolled over with the President
and her mother from the log cabin
to the hotel otlics, a little room ten'by

She tossed her suitor's hat of brown
straw upon tbo ollice desk and, Beating
herself near her mother, they chatted
with Mrs. Daniel Weiddle and Miss
Warner, of New Y'ork. Prof. Lentzs
entertained the group by reciting
somo of his adventures among tho
members of the Italian colony of New
Orleans, while in search of a relative
who was suspected of having taken to
tno streets with an organ.
Ths first mestizo over the wires was
from W. D. Waeiiburn, President of
the Exposition, and concluded with
the words: "The great concourse of
poople now present will loei graunea
and honored if Mrs. Cleveland will,
by sotting in motion the machinery
department of the Exposition, wbicti
for thnt purpose has been connected
with Saranao Inn, Adirondacks, N. Y.,

President Cleveland furnished tbo
operator, J. M. Harrington, with this
reply, in tils own handwriting:
"Sarinac Ink, Urrm Sararac I.aki,

"Hon. W. D Waahburo, Preddont, Minus

With many thanks for the kind
message sent to us by the officers and
directors of the Minneapolis Industrial
Exposition, Mrs. Cleveland joins me
in tendering to them hearty congratu
lation upon the auspicious inaugura

demonstrates the prosperity and prog

re Hoc t credit upon a country whose
greatest pride is tbo happiness and
contentment of its people and their
their enjoyment of all the gifts of Uod.
Mrs. Cleveland gladly complies with
your reouest, and will st in motion

Mrs. Cleveland stepped forward to
give tbo signal which should move the
machinery mors thin 1000 miles away.
The spectator, laughed heartily when
the President Bravely admonished her
not to start it with a jsrk. The cir

within two minutes after Mrs. Cleve

came from Minneapolis that the ma

of the party who was fortunate enough
to catch any tiah. A rumor has been
sent out from Paul Smith's, seventeen
miles distant, that the President's

A rrrnltnraiaHM t,'hleao.
Cuioaoo, Iix., August 3. The
Cigar Makers' Union, through its sec
retary, began an injunction suit in the
Circuit Court today against the Berry
man Bros., cigar nianufactnieis. The
bill alleges the defendants have been
using a label on their cigar boxes in
imitation of the union label. It
claims that Berry roan Bros, do not
employ union workmen and there
fore have no no rght to nse the label
of the union, but in order to deceive
the public have had a counterfeit label
made. Attached to the bill of com
plaint are copie, of the original lsbel
and the alleged counterfeit The first
reads as follows: "I his certifies that
the cigars contained in this box have
been made by a first clas workman, a
member n( the Cigar Make.s' Inter
national Union of Ametira, au organ
ization opposed to rat obep, to die,
prison or filthy tenement house work
manship. We therefore recommend
these cigars to all smokers thiooghout
the world." Tne alleged counterfeit
reads just the same, but diffurs a little
iu the type. Like the original label it
bears a facsimile of the signature of
A. btrasssr, president of the Inter
national Union. Ihe secretary siks
the court to enjoin the difendants
from using tbo label.

submit tamely to such treatment, but
be warned them that disorders would
only serve as excuse for refusing home
rale, and would insure coercion.
The Rt. Hon. W. H. Smith, Secre
tary of War, in answer to an inquiry
made in the Houe of Commons this
evening by Sir Julian troldamid, Lib
eral member for South Pancreas,
in relation to the charges mado by
Col. Thorpo in a military publication
that a corrupt ring exietid for the
cenirol of tho ordnance disbursement,
and that this ring was composed of
eminent officials of tbe government
and membeis of the Sir William Arm
strong Arms Manuf-c uring Com
pany, esid that he nad care
fully considered the charges, and
so far had seen nono wbich anaoant
ed to a soeciiic charge of corruption,
malveisation in office or diigrootfnl
conduct in any particular department
or officer. Mr. Smith added that he
had invited Col. Thorpe to privately
impart to the War Department any
facts he had in bis possession or con
trol impugning in say way the conduct
of affairs in either tbe ordnance or
any other branch, promising to lay
tbe information before tbe crown law
yers with a view to submitting the
matter to a competent tribunal for
t'ial if material could even be obtained
for a prima facie cose.
Sir Micbaol Hicks-Reach said it wes
the duty of the government to restore
order and administer the government
in Iroland with tbe law as tbey found
it. Why, be asked, did not Sir
William Harcourt move an amend
ment to the address instead of at
tempting to s'ab the givernment be
hind tbe back. If it was true that tbe
government had encouraged outrage
aud promoted dieorder in Ireland it
ought to be impeached. The policy
of the government was a plain and
sober one; it wss to promote the
social and materiel welfare of Ireland
and to assist the Irish in obtaining
rest from the ceisoleBt political agita
tion to which they had so Lng been
subjected. laughter and cneers
The government, therefore, prop sed
to institute an inquiry into the envel
opment of the material iesoorce3 of
Ireland. Sir William Harcourt 's the
ory that tho social disordets could not
be treated with (success unless the
causes were treated ss of modern in
vention, bo (the sneaker) conld e
member when Sir William Harcourt
denounced the land league doctrine
as a doctrine of assassination, and
took an active put in the adoption cf
measures for the repression of the
league without considering remedial
measures. He (the speaker) believed
that the troubles in Belfast were
due to the unfortunate proposals of
the late government. Cheer. Were
the disorders in Bellast and Kerry
to be allowed to continue until the
electorate changed the minds and re
turned a Parliament pledged to Glad
stone's policy? If not, why did Sir Wil
liam llrrconrt Baeer at the preeent gov
ernment for trying to do their doty to
suppress crime T Wherever the gov
ernment should find the laws harsh or
unjust they would remedy tliera.
Cheers. Sir William Harconrt was
afraid to attack he government openly
and move an amendment to the ad
dress, bnt he cbnlked the wall with
the motto "No Rent" and then ran
away. Lond cheers. The govern
ment proposed two things to
administer the law and to con
eider carefully a scheme of decentral
ization in the direction of local self
Government formed upon a popular
basis. Parnollite laughter. The lat
ter scheme would be framed as far as
poeeible to meet the ex'goncies of Ire
land cheer,, but in accordance with
the verdict of the lest elections.
Cheers That was their wholo policy.
The government hoped that when
their t'tinroof oflice closed they would
leave Ireland more peaceful, orderly
and prosperous than they had found it.
Lord llartington maintained that
tbo Unionists had not forfeited their
claim to be liberal, bocauso they were
unable to accept opinions which until
recently were not held in any consid
erable section cf the Liberal party. He
denied that he had ever spoken dis
respectfully of Mr. Gladstone. Cer
tainly no Unionist had ever done a,
Mr. Labouchere had impuVd. Mr.
Gladstone had advocttea tbe land
purchase meaeure, not because he was
convinced of its expediency, bnt as a
bribe to secure the enppottof the Tory
landlords. The government bad res

demand for an exposition of the gov
ernment policy allecling Ire
land. The House could not
be expected to commit itself to
an op nion on unpropofed legislative
measure, but only in regard to im
ii'Cdiata measures. Tho government
bad not asked for exceptional powers.
Ha failed to gather thai the opposition
lender objected to the government
roeneure, which naturally Mr. O'Con
ner had dis?arnged because he did not
want a restoration of Locial order. At
this point the speaker wesintoriupted
byiriesof'Shame!" and" Withdraw !"
He replied that perhaps he might be,
allowed to finish the sentence. He
biid intended to say that Mr.
O'Connet had disparaged the gov
ernment measures becauso he
did not want a ns'oration of
social order until politual chang-s
had been accomplished upon which
Mr. O'Conncr's heart was pet, and
upon which be believed the perma
nent prosperity and happiness of -Ireland
depended. Cheers. Continu
ing, Lord Ha'tington said be thought
that the Houee would require that bet
ter reasons be given for the grounds
which Sir Vernon Harcourt, in his
recent speech, covered the govern
ment's action with contempt and ridi
cule. Certainly that spr9ch had added
to tbe d'Uknlty with which ths gov
ernment was confronted. Cheers
He regretted the imputation
that the government bad encouraged
Irish landlords by acting otherwise
man with moderation and forbear
ance. It was equally riiadvantif eons
to urge that the Ministry Bhonld r
fuee to ure the powers of the law to
enforce legal rights. He (Hartington)
approved inquiring in:o the material
resource of Ireland. He thought it
worth Investigation whether there
were notcertainclaesesof pub'ic works
which might with advantage be under
taken by the government. Cheers
Mr. Morley, upon rising, was loudly
cheered by tne Parneiliiee. He said
be had never denied that the dissi
dents had a perfect right to diecuss
Mr. Gladstone's proposition freely.
Lord Hartington was amply justified
in disavowing any disrespect to Mr.
Gladstone, bnc tbe same eould not be
said of other parties to the controversy.
Ho had observed little in the language
oi his noble friend to encourage the
hope that the difficulty would soon end.
He mointained that a majority of tbe
Liberals with Mr. Gladstone's must
wait and see if it would be possible to
justify their past action. They should
certainly spare no p.iinato convert the
country to their way of thinking.
Cheers. He admitted that it was
tbe duty of the government to sup
press disorder, but he feared that they
would fail now as they had in 1S85.
He said tbit an increase of outrages
always followed an increase of evic
tions. It was a fallacy to suppose that
social order could be xcstored without
dealing with the agrarian question. The
government propoeed to stop outrages,
on the one hand and to encourage
evic: ions on the other. Cheers. He
doubted if any good wou'd be accom
plished by sending Sir Redvers
Boiler to Ireland, because that gentle
msrt would be unable to devise any
new means for tbe detection of crimes
which the public deBired to conceal.
Tbe league had done its utmost to
prevent crinre, and its failure was
evidence of bow deep rooted the dis
order was, but Mr. I'arnell was right
when he said that if nnder home rule
the outrages continued, the rest of
Ireland would soon put a stop
to them. The pioposals of the late
government had -made the task of
restoring order an easier one because
they had given the Irish people a
meaeure of patience, which they
never had bad before. He was disap
pointed by the narrowness of the pro
posals which the government had
shadowed forth. Moreover, the Land
Commission would be likely to have a
mischievous effect .nron social oroerin
October and Novembsr, as the land
lords would be tempted to extort the
utmost fartbing in order Io prove that
the ren'i were not too high, and tsn
snt3 would have an equal in
terest in withholding rents for
the opposite reason. If they
were to have a land bill such as Lsrd
Salisbury had foreshadowed, he be
lieved the country would scon wish it
had accepted Mr. Gladstone', measure.
Continuing, Mr. Morley said that tbe
appointment of a commission to in
quire into the condition of the Irish in
dustries was entirely unnecessary, as
all desirable information on the i abject
was already in tho hands of the gov
ernment. He considered that tbe
firoposal to spend millions of Eng
ish money on public works in Ire
land was of more doubtful expediency
than any proposal that could have
emanated from the government. Be
sides it vas a measure of centraliza
tion, and was introduced at tbo same
time a local government was promised.
Cheers. Iu conclusion, Mr. Morley
said they would never be able to make
a ttep toward a permanent settlement
nnlil they had given Ireland a statu
tory Parlitmsnt and an Irish Execu
tive. Cheers.
Mr. rarrell adjonrned the debate.
to the address in reply to the Queen's
speech is substantially as follows:
"We humbly assure your Majesty
that we fetr that, owing to the heavy
fall in the prices of agricultural pro
ducts, grett difficulty will be experi
enced daring the coming winter by
Irish tenant farmers in tbe payment
of the present rent-. Many will be
unable to pay, and numerous evictions
and the ccnli?cstion of tbe rights
vetted in tenants by tho laud set of
ISsl will follow, causing widespread
suffering and eudar gering the main
tenance of social order. We depre
cute any attemot to transfer the Ion
due to inability to pay rents from tbe
owners of land to the ti.x payers cf
Great Britain and Iieland by any ex
tension of State assii-ted purchase on
the baiia cf rents fixed whenrrkes
were higher than tbey sro now."
The events in Bulgaria formed the
principal theme of conversarion iu tho
lobby cf the House of Commons to
n g-.t. The Farnellites and alvauced
Radicals hold that diplomatic compli
cations must inevitably ensue, arguing
that it will be impossible, f r the gov
ernment to submit to a ciup d'etat,
which so greatly increases the Czar's
influence in the Balkans.
Tbe Minitteria'Hts admit that the
deposition of Pince Alexander is a
matter of extreme gravity, but they
say that even if it be proved that Rus
sia ins'igated tbe movement it will be
difficult lor England, because it is
generally assumed that Austria and
Germany acquieeced in Alexander's
overthrow. It is considered improb
able by the Coneerva'ives that the
government will enter a pro' est in tbe
matter. The government has been
reliably informed thir. Prince Alexan
der is Etife and well in Roumania. Tbe
Paris lemps consid-rs that England
has received a rebuff, and it fears that
the events in Sjfia will arouss rival
sentiments which, have been lying
dormant for two yea-s.
