4 MEMPHIS DAILY APPEALSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1836. MEMPHIS APPEAL. SU5D1T, t SEPTEMBERS, 1886. TEN" PAGES BTBICKKM CH lUCITSK. An unprecedented calamity bss fallen upon the people of Charleston. The misfortune wm so sudden and un expected that there it mach suffering. Thousands are made homeless and lost their all. The calamity has been cxtraordinaty, and demanda prompt and extraordinary relief. Help haa been called for, and we are gratified to know that Memphis will do some thing to relieve ber stricken sister. Most of the S:uthern cities responded to the appeal for a'd, and Memphis will manifest her sympathy by sub stantial aid. The people of Charleston are battling bravely with miafiwtnnes, and with the help that is ponring in from the North and South it is hoped the will soon emerge from her desolation into comfort and that proe petit y S3 suddenly blighted. BEMeiOVSJ POLITICS. Fanaticism is the curse of a Repub lic. It is always trying to socomplish the im pet Bible, and is therefore an in jury to any cause it espouses. The prohibition fanat'es are busy organ! ing a new party, which they aver is to be a ligbteoui party, a party that will enforce temperance, law and the oh- servance of the Sabbath. The recent Prohibition Convention at Uarriebaigi Pa , tcok the position that tbik oa'ion needs, and needs just now, a party of rlRhteoumets, not only to secure good laws not already on our statute books, but as well to enforce those already there. They believe that oar most eaered and cherished institutions are inpeii'. They believe tbe hour his struck for the orgufzatioa of a party of righteouencsi in lh!s groat nation. Tbe convention was very emphatio in declariog fis purpose to maintain the Christian Babbsth. Bo it seems that we are to ha vs a party of tight eousaees, a religious Pio'eittnt polit ical party. It will be a woful day to the Republic, t j all religious denomi nations, if the day should ever come when religious liberty depends on tbe capricious whims of the popular ma jority las ead of a wr.tten constitution which guarantees religious freedom to all. Fanaticism baa done much of evil in times pist, and promises to do more. The Prohibition pirty of Peon sylvsnia, and this teems to be the drift of the organisation everywhere, rtsbly unites telig'on with politic, and proposes to prosecuti the cam palgn on this basis. Thete people, in their enthus'aim for their caqm based upon moral princip'e, recklees'y strike a blow which, if efftc'.ive, would shat ter into a thousand fragments the foundation rock npon which is built our glorious Republic. Absolute and complete (operation of Church from State, religion from politics, Is tbe fundamental principle of liber ty. This creed is so deeply grounded into the very beicg of tbe great mass of Amei leans that it is only trite to sty that the Piohibltion party sounds its own death knell the mo ment it unites religion with politics. We call upon the true friends of the movement to take warnlnst, acd, be fote it is too late, eliminate all religion Aom their political faith. Tfce prcs encecf the 148 Protestant clergymen in the convention at Berrisbirg wrr an ill onion. Theao ctherwlss good citizens' have apparently permitted their seal to run away with their re a eon until they ctnnot distinguish ti e I difference between religion and mo lality.

KOBE TROI IILE 1 IIBE4TENIBCG The Appeal recently explained to lis readers that the King of Denmark was violating tbe constitution of that coun try by committing tbe most arbitrary acts through tha Prime Minister, Es trap, even going to the extent of arrest ing tbe Speaker of the House ot Repre sentatives and imprisoning him. Tbe King and bis Minister, eplie of all re monstrances, persist in their illegal course, and tbe patlencs of the people is nearly exhausted. They elect Liberal representatives, and even a great part of tbe Conservatives have been driven to join their former opponents, the Liberal?. An instance will show how insufferable tbe acts of tha govern ment are. An article of the constitu tion perm'ts it, in cases of extreme urgency, to take money from the Treasury until the Parliament meets. This is made use of to defy Parliament. A few weeks asro a royal decree dis solved tbe Parliament, and be fore all the memb.'rs had left the bouse tha government took from the Treasury, under a plainly false plea of urgency, the money it required, although unappropriated by the Legislature. The King has put himsilf in the 'position the English Charles I did, for which bis h ai was cutoff., The people hv naturally become restlees, and a revolution seems probable. Denmark would like to establish a Republic, but Its neigh tors, Germany and Russia, would not permit that. The people claim that they stand solely by tbe constitut'on that compliefl with they will us eatisuea. 1 tie sitnanou at this moment may be judirrd of by tbe tal lowing from tbe Conenhairen. Den mark, correspondent of tbe Kew York Herald : "A Danish revolution is now impending and is likely to esue a general Scandinavian upheaval, dur ing which monarchical principles in those countries cou'd only be main tained bf tbe intervention of Rosnan or Uerman troop. Contre coupi would be sure to take place la thos conn tries, causing a general movemont thiouahotH Europe like that of 1848." With a DaoJoh uprising added to the situation in JMigaria, me p-oipect for peace in Europe is not good. LABOU PROBLEMS. Commissioner Wright has published the first report of the Board of Labor Statistics. It contains many facts of great importance at this time, when "labor troubles" have bean prevalent, and, unless an era of good trade eeti in andsmoctbs away diwor tint, when more trouble still is preparing. A pro founder investigation into tbe causes and nature of alternate periods of trade prospsiily and trade depression, would have added to the value of tbe report. EspeclRl'y light is wanted to confirm orobliteiate the idea that is beginning to prevail that rapid communlra'ion by railroads and tslographs will have the offect of closing up commer cial transactions more iapidly, and thus reduce the amount ot com mercial cradit. This effnet, in combination with other causes, would be to ex'o ad tbe period b -twoen de pressions, and have a loading influ ence by which, in times of ptcpcrlty, there wculJ be loss "booming" aud in times oi depression, fewer batik ruptcies and less destitution. 8:at sties in many luttancee have shown wcgrs io os ovi r and mora st a iy, where elllcinrt labor orpanisitionH exist. It would Its of gieU intertst to esjertain me precise vaiuo oi trsdei unions a a nitor in the waeo rate. Pools and other combinations are regarded as means oi sustaining railway (II v (lands snd commercial profits, and it is louical to crnclude that labor unions must have a similar peconia'y fffee. Too mnch attention cannot be paid to the latior problem, lor cur laborirg popu bttion n-o assumine a nosltioa that Indicates an epproaching change in uie reitunns oi 1110 employer and itie employed. Toe infer reftro to admit ttie nnlion that labor is boiiKht mm torn precisely as is a load ot pota toes or a bale of cotfm fheetings. They claim that the personal relations of employer and employed involve more and diflerent things from thoss existing betwrou the buyer and the S'llcrof a her e or a eteain engine. If the labor bureau wi 1 throw liubt upon such topics as these it will romier important t ervice aud help to prevent much future trouble.

THE JOIST DEBATE LftELT BE WARS. TO Both Candidates Express f hemselTM About It Tbe Views or a Correspond!, The contest for the Democratic Con gressional nomination is warming op, and tbe joint discurVon between Col. ratter boo and Mr. fhelan promises to be exceedingly su'try. "If any harm comes of it to tbe party the responsibility reets wih Mr. Phelao." said Col. Patterson last nlgbt. He wrote snd requeeted me to divide time with bim, and I answered that while I doubted tbe propriety of a joint discussion, I was willing to meet him on the stump, I hope tbe result will be for good, but it is against my judirment." "They say yon are making a lively beginning, Colonel," the Appial man remarked. "Oh, no," was the reply; "I have been busy in my office all day. I eball aolicit no votes on personal grounds. No man bas a right to ask office except for party rea sons. Wben I was nominated for tbe Legislature in 1X821 was sitting at my desk. I did not intend to make any canvass for Congress, bnt have, in a measure, b n obliged to do s. It is not my deaire to hamper anybody by pledges. I ask no man to give me tils vote because my name is fatter too. If they cannot support me be cause of tbe principles I represent they need not do to at all. 0 a none of the great questions of the day will l be lound to nave any nan way senti ment. I have no hesitation in ileclar ing myself as utterly and nncom- promiMingly opposed to the Blair bill and to protection. I don't see ho any Democrat can feel otherwise. If my own brother were a candidate for Congress and be betrayed the leas' shakinees on either question, I would vote against mm." MB. JAMES PIIELAK who was seen shoitly afterward, said that be looked forward to a diecussion with Col. Patterson with a good deal of pleasure. "While it Is my inten tion to treat my competitor with all the courtesy he is entitled to," said Mr. Phelan, "I shall t'avel with no mincing gait, I intend to be very candid, and if possible wl 1 enlighten tne voters oi tr.e Xentn as to the pe culiar reaeons lor uoi. ratrson s can didacy just at this time, and of tbe motives which nnderlie it. Nothing eball deter me from my determination in tms regard Fair Play for Phclaa. To tha Editora of tha Appsa! t In view of the importance of onr representation in Congress I take tbe liberty of presenting through your columns tbe results of my own obser vations snd thought on this subject, wbicu have led me to become a rJrm supporter of Mr, James Phelan. It Is first of alt desirable toat we have a Democta. It is cone ded tbat he will be a man new to the field. Conid ring tbat Memphis is a grow ing city and that the ckiuth Is in a progressive mood, it Is not amiss that new mater at enouid be looked lor. James Phelan is a native of Mem phis. He bas grown op toafamlliarity with all its interes s. A man of generousimpul. es and of Impn slve nature, bis impulses sre guided by clear judgment and a calm rearon. If he is quick he is aleo accurate. It he is ready, he is also enduring snd capa bleof piulonged study aud long as well as errneit effort. A man of fine education, he bas kept always close in the current of practical life. Ho has not neglec'ed human affairs and an interest in the affairs of his fellow men in any enfeebling contemplation of art, devotion to letters or rearch after tne mysteries oi pniiosopny While acquiring the breadth otvlew derived from liberal educa'ion he lias avoided all traces of pedantry. He is liberal and scrnpuloutly honect, but a keen, shrewd and tunctsstul busi ness man. He ha exhibited in his own afiai8 capacity f r public ntlnire, He has shown in local politics, State conventions ana river conventions quirk judgment and ability. in rju-icess no is wuos is called a lucky man. Where other j lose be wine. Wbere otbers fa'l be sncceedp His luck consists of well dilated p ai s, quick prao'icil jadgment, fiank botdceas and admirable perl tencs, Thus be is well fl te J by broad views, liberal education, business habi's anu irainu g, progrcsiive sentiment ana a ckse knowledge of and iutuiia'e idjn t libation with tbe interes 8 of this growing city and Itssurrotindirgc u: try to rerrosjnt thoso interes's in C n ff i ess. The South one a I a 1 superior weight in nauoaai aiuits oecauie ene kpt trained men to represent ber iater e t', as they wore then. The North bas profited by that cximple, and in the mighty cbargps tbe men who one e understood aud pressed faithfully and ali'y our intures s naturally failed to kep up with the now order treated by over helming chango. Thus tbe South has tlost ground. It is time tlut we toik notice ot the vaBt changes war, time and a convulsive alteration of trie llor system hava wrongbt, and ret newer men, nieuiiii a witn our newer aspirations in politic1, in buM- nene, aud in social and Indus r.al life, to represent these. Mr. Phelan is in every way fitted for the work. He is cupable of be coming a broad, liberal, tntesinan like representative, po.'seesng that close practical, bunioess like udder- standing of aod identification with our growing interest, which is bo necessary iu modem representation. tie bas grown up with the changes it is necessary for tbe modern statesman to understand. He baa come into practical life and bu loess at a time to beet fit him t t represent all tbat is bust In the aspirations of ycung men and od men for that perfect adapts tion to 'new condi ions which yields an iota cf what is tiu, genuine and valuable in the old. Besides bsing well ioformed. inteliiirent brave, bo- right and honorable, ha is true as steel to his Mends; frank and open, bnt reapectfol in his expression of opinion asto.Ji and meBores; of sincere and generous and genuine nature, tender as a woman io his broad hu manity, cot to be deceived or fooled by any, nj.fctd by all men Uni In bll moral ' r.P. r'flr anil ahnv rebioacb. :a u All that assiduous attention to busi ness and persistent advocacy, ready judgment and tha employment of all open and honorable nieaDS could se cure for bis district, the Mies'ssippi Valley and that t-i-Ktate sunouuding country, which is the Memphis field he would obtain. Sprurg from and identified with the leading nentimeat of the South, he cherishrsits memor'ei as a heritage its s ns were recreant nod base to for got, to neglect or to fill in any way to prseerve where ttey preserve their most sicrad memories cf home and family. A true xon of the South, be holds fast by all that the South did tbat was noble and enduring, and cus cards only senseless, repining and use less yearnings, exchanging thess for renewed endeavor wor ny toe sons oi the Southern sires. At this great rail center, holding fast by the necessity for keeping all tbe creatures of society amenable to law, when it is necessary to apply the law or to enact laws for application, be entertains liberal views with respect to the necesei'y for cherishing, invit ing and fes'eung enterprises to neces sary to this city and its tributary country, dependent on it lor growtu and progress. Discarding all protection, per ee, sentiments and holding tbe tariff policy strictly subservient to the in terests of the people, be advocates cocserva ive revision, carefully and gradually tempered so as to avoid tbat businees disturbance wbich is hurtful to all and, while doing this be would lay tbe duties so ss to help rather thai to hurt our own industries and inter es's. Herein he occupies tbe Chicago platform, interpreted literally and plainly. He euly threw bimfelf into tha arena as an advocate of that liberal national improvement of rivers which is so neceeeary to Memphis, so esen- t al to the Mississippi Valley, and wnich is destined to build a new em pire in the Southwest surpassing any tuiog yet conceived in the way of American progress, lie was aa in fluential member of the New Orleans K ver Convention cf 18S5. cf the Kan eas City Convention of 188(1, and be was sent on beha'f of Memphis to srgue the river question brfore Ihs Vtiver and Hirbor Commit ee tf the House. Personally popu'ar with young men and old, he bas an entbunnstic follow ing throughout tbe district. His friends are attached to him with an atdor that argues trlunoh snd useful neas. H'Bgood itdgment is bla good luck, atd I think I may fairly predict bis triumphant nomination aid a loug end a useful career ai a prsctical Kop reeenta ive from the Soutn, giltd with a thorough understanding of the people and of the interests he rep resDti. If nominated be will unite tbe Democra ic party snd bring its la-t man to the polle. If elec'ed. he will do h'a district honor and profit in the House It is not neeetstry to speak of gen tlemen of past experience in ca iona1 legislation. It is conceded that tbe nominee will be a new and untried man. Why not, then, a new man who is a part of tbe interests be will repre sent, by birth, training, youthful aseo- c ations, mnnnood s straggles and dmi nesi relations? He starts out at least on equal terms with any other.

Scfia, September 4 Price Alexan der made tbe following address at a reception given by bim to the officers of the army: ths pbiscb's address. For seven years I bave labored for tbe independence and interests of Bul garia. My constant special solicitnd has been for my army and officer. I consider them my family, my children, and I bave felt eeenre in my personal poeidon, when I have teen myself sur rounded by officer who had been my comrades in oar ttrupgU s i r (be glory of Bulgaria. (Here tears came from the Prince's eye. Recovering his composure be resumod.) On tbat sad night, having beard a noise, I asked whether troops were there, Yes,' wss tbe reply. Then I fait tranquil, for I bad confidencs in my army. Notwithstanding the unfortu nate events which followed, -I have not been disappointed in my officer. They rose to tbe level ot the sitnat:ou and proved themselves capable of cop ing with tbe troubles wbich followed my departure. Thanks to PopofI and Moutkorofl (here the Prince embraced those officers) the honor of Bujguia's officers has been reasserted. I see around me officers who are de voted to me, and I cannot belp eddreosing praises to thote of ficer!, and with the conviction that order will not be disturbed. In whatever circumstances I might find myself I would place my ir.flience at the service of Bulgaria. I will pray to God for her, my heart sha t eer be with my officers and I shell he tbe first to ask to bs admitted to tbem as a volunteer in a campaign for Mace donia. I cannot remain in Bulgaria, lor tbe Czar will not permit me, be cause my preeeiice is inimical to the interests of tbe country. I am f rced to quit the throne." M. PopofI exc aimed: "We have been and tball ever bs with you Courage ; forward." Prince Alexander replied: "The independence of Bulgaria requires that I leave the country. If 1 did tot Russia would occupy it. I will, how ever, consult with the superior offic 'rs, and cons' itnte a regetcy wbich will endeavor to protect the interests ot my officers. In any case, I rely on toe army.". Piince Alexander imparted his in tention of abdicating to the German and Russian Consuls. A c.uncil, among tne members of whlcb are Messrs. Stambdloff and Ka ava'off, is being held to srrsnge for the regency. The Prince will probably leave within two days. The officers of the army are greatly excited, and talk of detain ing tbe Prince. xThey!have resolved in any case to refuse to receive a Russian eovoy.
