In Rojard to the ConcrresMonnl Nom

To4ho Editors of the Appeal:
The followirg are extracts taken
irciu an editorial which appeared in
the Avalanche ol this (Thursday) morn
in: 'It :s the risin purpose of the d..rk
horse idea to work in secret, to secure
a little strength heieand a little there
under cover of somebody lee. Is this
Irnuk, fair or Democtatic? The pur
pose then is to set A asmmt 1) and B
svrainst (J, to mke sham and pietcDtc
of nomination when the purpose is to
avoid it, to generate wrangling and to
tiring about a deadlock when har
mony should be the ol.ject.
And then at the last moment when
all is ripe the dark horse is sprang.
This savors tather of conclave and
cabal than of candid Democratic meth
ods." After farther commentine on a com
munication WDiiu appeared in ma
Appeal signed "Old Deniocnxt" in
which tho names of seven gentlemen,
including myself, are spoken of as
worthy ot Uongressionsl Conors, tne
article continues as follows:
"Brit, let us apply the process cf
elimination. Here ate, mark yon,
ssven nanus, Wright, Morgan, Gsnt,
lireer, iarley, 1'attorson and weflk.y,
"Gen. VV light holds himself ahso
lately out of that field. Mr. Gantt
abhois the political arena. Judge
Morgan haa other fifth to fry and is
positively 'out. Judge Turley could
not even take a Sunreme Juilyesh'p
when it was within his grasp. Judge
Greer is emphatically tot a candidate.
Mr. Weakly is positively not a candi
date. ''Algebra is not worth a cent In poll
tics. We have applied the process of
elimination to these seven names. We
have eliminated all seven. We haven t
anybody left for 'An Old Democrat's'
dark horse. We give it up.
" we tiaven i forgotten any booy.nave
we? "No. "we are seven." all there,
everybody accounted for, all out We
give it np.
The necessary implication from
these extracts is that 1 am what the
Avalanche terms "dark horse" In the
contest for Congress, fuch a candi
date it describee to be one whose pur
pose it is "to set A against B, and B
against C ; to make sham and pretense
of nomination when the purpose is to
avoid it; to generate wiangling, and to
bring abont a deadlock when harmony
should be the object," This is cer-
tsunly an unenviable cnaracier me
Avalanche has portrayed, and I have
areatly misunderstood the estimation
in which I am held in this community
if they deem ine capable of playing
any such role. I dclre, therefore,
through yonr columns to state to tno
pnblie my attitude in respect to the
Congreesional race. Within the last
two weeks a number ol gentlemen
have approached me on the subject of
becoming a candidate for Congreea.
They have said to me that I
would be an available candi
date. I have replied on all
occasions that I was not a candidate,
tbat I was content with a private tta.
tion in life, tbat my business relations
were nleaeant to me. and it was alto
gether agreeable to me to follow my
professional pursuits. I said to them
further that I would under no circuit
ntAncn nmliarraA mv friends Or ob
trade myself on the Democrotic parly
or its councils. To this I have added
that while I did not suppose I occu
nied anv such place in the public eetl
mation. vet if I believed that it was
the general wish of the party Ior me
to make the canvass I would not de
cline to do so. Whether this places
me in the attitude of a timid, sell
wekincr swoirant for Congress, conspir
ing oy indirection to Dreea uiscoru iu
the councils of the Democratic parky
for mv own promotion, or in that of an
unobtrusive citizen who is content
with his station in life, let the pnblls
determine. In addition to the reasons
which I gave my friends for not be
coming a candidate, there are other
reasons which wonld deter me from
making a personal canvatB for the
nomination. A seat in Congress Is an
office of honor rather than of profit.
I can see how a candidate for an
ollice of profit might make his canvass
a matter of business and personally so
licit vote in a nominating convention.
On the other band, I can see how a
cit'zen might regard a eeat in Con
gress as an honor, and yet hesitate to
obtrude himself on his friends or his
party to obtain It. The only pride I
could feel in the acquisition ol inch an
honor would bs fonnd in the con
sciousness that It was conferred by the
suffrage of the peoplo without impor
tunity on my part. Again, the Tenth
CongreaioDal District is one con
spicuous on account of ita geo
graphical position. The prin
cipal city of the Southwest, with
all ita diversified interests, growth
of population and development of In
dustrie, is within its limits. The
harbor of Memphis situated on onr
great inland bob, at the terminus of so
many lines of railroad will continue to
be an object of legislative interest.
An empire of overflowed lands, be
tween this city nnd the gulf, on the
reclamation of which the greatness of
the Mississippi Valley depends, is
wlthla the limitations of the constitu
tion, a groat legislative problem. To
ay nothing of other legislation of a
more national character to whkh the
Democratic party stands plodtred, it is
plain that a man of no ordinary
ability should represent this district
in Congress. I wonld hesitate to un
dertake it. I am wanting in that ex
perience of public a flairs which wonld
enable me to perform the duties of
the position as I conceive tbey should
be performed. 1 certainly wonld not
think of undertaking it, nnloes the
people of the district ceiled me from
the ranks, without solicitation on
my part to make the attempt. This
I have no reason to suppose they will
do. I will certainly never insist I
merit such a distinction. This is my
attiiude in respect to the matter. If
it coDfl'cta with the notions of people
who think that the office, whether of
honor or of profit, rightfully belong to
those who clamor loudest for them, it
cannot be helped. That it will meet
with the approval of many good citi
zens I do not doubt.

Chicauo.IIix., August 20. It is un
derstood this evening tbat the sub
committee at work upon an agree
ment to govern Weetern passenger
tralUs have decided upon tbe adop
tion of plan similar to that created
for the Texas pool. Tho average of
the past three years' business will be
nsed as the basis of the proportion of
the traffic to be guaranteed each asso
ciation line for the next year and at
the end of that time the average of
four years' business is to be taken for
new divisions and so on as long as th
pool lasts. All revenues from passen
ger traffic aie put into a common pool
and after each road receives from this
the amount guaranteed any excess
will be divided among them in the
same propo'tions. This is stated to be
the plan substantially agreed npon al
though not yet reported, as tbe sub
committee b yet at wo'k perlocting

Louisville and Nashville scoop of the

come on to Shctlield from Clarksville,
Tenn., and reports of a similar fate for
the Georgia Central,' has suggested to
gossips to say that something is proba
bly on the boards for the Shell! ski and
Birmingham road. Col. Enoch Eos
sley, who is laigoly interested in the
construction company which is to
build that road, says that it is abso
lutely out ol danger of a scoop or stop
page, and will be pUBhed through
to Birmingham as fast as It is pctf-ible
to do the work, regardless of outside
deals. Tho better opinion of indus

de Lou'sville and Nashville roally

and stops tbe Goodwater extension to
this city, the Kansas City Company
will combine with somebody and put

BRI5G AB0CT ANOTHER DIS
Knonff Fitches a (food Game bnt Re
celvcs Wretched Support Re
sults of dames Elaen here.
Knonff pitched a winning game yes
terday, but received miserable sup
port, and the home team lost the
game which should have been theirs
if their playing had been free from er
ror. Of the six runs to Atlanta's credit
not one was earned, while the one run
made by Memphis was an earned one.
This clearly shows that as far as bat
teries were concerned Memphis had
tho best of it. Wells was hit freely
and hard, and did net play np to his
reputation, and but for Strieker's
wonderlul work at second would have
been knocked out of the box. Seven
put outs and two at-ists is something
that even the king of & cond basemen,
Dunlap, might well feel proud of.
Sneed's illnees has seriously crippled
the nine. On Wednesday he was
replaced by a novico named
Black, whose trrors contrib
uted largely to the lo?s of the
game. Yesterday an amateur named
MaHon was sent out to left lleld while
Bob Black replaced Snccd in right
field. The AthtuUs, tiuiik to fee a
weak spot and work, sent their lly
balls to left field when theto ere men
on bases, and in that way scored a
couple of runs, McSorley also made
a costly error that- helped Atlanta to
victory iu a game where they failed to
earn a run. Snoed was on the ground
yesterday, but not well enough to
plav. Ho will be on hand today,
however, and a better showing may be
safely rolied on. Conway will doubt
less be in the box for Atlanta, nnd if
the home team went to win a game in
this series thio is their only chance.

Judge Hammond received tele
gram yesterday from Circuit Justice
Woods in relation to the United States
Marshalship, bnt its contents ware not
disclosed. The simple statement is
made that the dispatch has been for
warded to Circuit Judge Jackson, at
Nashville, and tbat the three Judges
will endeavor to come to some agree
ment. This means a dslay of teveral
days and looks as if it were not stall a
fixed fact that Dr. Yancey will be tno
next Marshal. Those who have given
any thought to the point raised by tbe
District Attorney think that it retts
with the Judges to say who shall be
Marshal, and that they are not bound
by snythiag which has been done,
eit'isr by the Piesident or by ths Sen
ate. That biing the caae, tbe field is
open snd the new Marshal may be
Freeman, Y'ancey, Jones, Smith or

but did not tire on account of the

sent a bullet into the air, but tbe effect
was to hasten rather than to delay the
fugitive. Ho turned into the alley

thrusting aside a man who attsmpted
to stop hiiu. When Madden reached
