"Washington. September 6. A
quarter of a million dollars in bard
cash is a good round snm to receive
from the unknown. At regular inter
vals a paragraph appeals in the prats
oltne country announcing tne re
ceipt by tbe Ireasnry Department of
a contribution to the "conscience
fund." These contributions nowadays
vary from $10 to $200 or $3C0. A few
vears sko tbey were much larger.

and referring to this fact, remarked
that it showed conclusively that New
York and Pennsylvania were the most
religions BUt s in the Union. Tres:
urer Jordan replied that he did not
regard it in that light. In his opinion
it inly showed that tbe people in
these two States had done the most
stealing. Secretary Manning, in a re
port a few months sgo, stated that
the term "conscience fund," as ar
to donations received by the United
States Treasury from unknown source,
had Its origin in the popular feeling
that such donations are made by
persons who have at some time wrong
fully taken or witnneia Irom
the United States moneys which
were justly due, and who thus seek to
maaa rebuiuiuu 10 uie government,
The cash which comes in from the
conscience stricken people is on ac
count of frauds on the customs, frauds
under old Income tax law, or on tbe
revenue, and rarely from contractors
tinder the government. The income
tax having be n repealed some years
ago, contributions on its account are
very few at present. Somebody tug
Bests that the States a'ong the Cana
dian line and the Mexican border
should be heard from, as there mnst
be more or less smuggling carried on
thereabouts. However, the smuggler
usually d pa before tils conscience
wakes sufficiently to refund to the
government any portion of gains
lit gotten Dy evasion oi tne cm
toms duties. It is tbe floe
haired merchant In the great seaboard
cities who steals fiom Uncle Sam by
under valuations and. other devices
known to importers; and under the
influence of lieechtr and Talmige
ana oioer divines refunds occasionally
small portion of tba fraudulent cash
which has bull up the monument of
bis wra'th. Conscience is lurtly P
peaaed is at least quieted aid tbe
fund is augmented.
The first record of money received
Irom repentant delrauders is In 1827,
by the Register of the Treasury, and is
"lor moneys received Irom an un
known, stated to be on account of im
ports and tonnage. " The total amount
Irom tbat year until the middle of tbe
years 1874 was $102,014, quite a re
spectable sum to be returned for the
millions of dollars illegally withheld
from the government during that ex
citing epoch. Sines then no separate
account ot tne;c3ntnbailons has been
kept. W ben lien. Bpinner was Treas
urer he kept the account senaratelv.
but the practice was subsequently dis
continued, xue money now, as itbai
been for the greater number of years
sines 1827, when the contributions be
gan, is conveyed into the Treasury as
"miscellaneous recoipts Irom persons
unknown," and have been used
for the general purposes of the
government in connection with
moneys received from other sources,
having at no time been distinguished
from other funds in the general treas
ury. This is undoubtedly tbe safer
plan. Repeated attempts Lave bten
made by members of Congress to se
cure appropriations for various pur
poses, to be paid out of the conscience
fund. If 'the money goes into the
treasury as miscellaneous receipts it
ceaees to be a separate fund and can
not be laided upon. Inonoday dur
ing the last station three members ol
Congress were at tbe Treasury Depatt
ment inqnring about the fund, with a
view of obtaining a slice of it for some
private bill or other. Tbey were in
formed tbat the sum had ceased to be
anything but "money in tbe Treas
ury." and that it could not be touched.
The amounts received immediately
alter tne war were at follows: I8ti7,
$13,559; 1808, $17,114; 1809, $17,299;
1870,1340(1; 1871, $8740; 1872, $2997:
J873, $26,551; 1874, $8218. Tbe year
1808 was tbe great year for "con
science." The present receipts scarcely
keep up with the low average of the
peaceful period. The new adminis
tration indulged a forlorn hope for
some months tbat the outgoing Re
publican officials would become, in
some instances, repentant, and return
some of tbe enormous turns supposed
to have been tqueesed out of Uncle
Sam in one way and another during
the past quarter of a century, but no
cash turned up, and everybody was dis
appointed. Finally a very bright young
man in New York sent $10 to the
Treawv as contributed by "con
science." This was published in the
papers nearly a year ago and the
young New Yorker fxc'aimed, "Now
just wait for the returns!" lie ex
pected that the rich Republican
boodlo men. if any there were, would
be touched by the incident and yield
up the stolen fruit, but the bait only
caught three or four small fish.
Usually, however, the publication of
one conscience letter is fallowed by

lial explanation la inclcsad. Some of
'these explanations are very curious
and some very serious. The ladies
used to coctributs a good deal when
ment is made, and restitution follows.
The clergy transmit money without
mentioning names), ice largest amount
ever received in one contribution was
in 1868, when $15,000 in United States
t-M Doncta were sent in three pack
ages. When this unusualcontribution
was announced in tne newspapers
numerous and - lngecious attempts
were made to get the money out of lbs
ireasary. one man came on cere ana
claimed that his father had sent tbe
bonds while crszy. Tbe man'a father,
upon inquiry, proved to bs an inmate
of an asylum, but it was ascertained
that the family never possessed such a
sum. utber ellorts were made, a
search of the books of the Treasury
showed a block of $15,000 of 7-3J
bonds, which was thought correspond'
ed to the contribution. The money
was then hurriedly covered inti the
Treasury. The contributor had care
fully cut out the number of the bonds
so as to make it impossible to trace
thera to their former owner.
The othor day half of a $300 green
back was received for the cone donee
fund from New Yoik, with a note ex
nlsinine that the other half would lol
low. Sors enough the miming
portion came along next 'day, and the
two parts united maue a complete diii
with a little tissue paper and paste
added. Secretary Manning reported

To tb Editors of the Appeal
Two names, both of Memphis men,
seem now to be the only ones promt
nently presented to tbe convention
which is to select a candidate for Con
gress from this district They are tbe
names of gentlemen well known, uni
versally respected and by everybody
recognizor as worthy ol the pomtion
to which they aspire.
It is not my obiect, by any means,
to detract from tne one nor unduly
exalt the other. I do notspeak against
Mr. Phelao. but only give some rea
sons why, as one of the constituted
borlv. 1 creier uoi. ratieraon.
The Representative in Congress from
this distnct ougbt io be as ttrong, as
well furniehed, as zealous, as well in
formed and as influential as we can
possibly find. He should bain full
physical snd mental vigor, ma
ture without bobbles or cranks,
energetic, aggressive and in sound
sympathy with the hopes, the prog
ress and tbe history of tbe people be
is to represent. He should bs emi
nently a man of affairs, accustomed to
minaling with mn, at home in de
bate, quick to perceive, schooled to
think and to speak, and possessed of
tbe force of character, mental endow
ment and moral courage, which make
the poswsor felt as an active, efficient
power into toe legieiaiure oi tne
country. He should be a Democrat
to tbe core, thoroughly Southern.
Identified always with his party and
bis section, and yet broad enough to
stand in a Federal Coogrees
as a national man, and bear
ever in mind that this dietrict is
pait of a grand whole. Our system
intends tbat every Uongreesiooal
district shall have its Congressional
action through iti immediate Keprc
renla'ive, all the weight, and a l the
importance, and all the independent
and individual care and solicitude to
which it is entitled under a wise and
judicious appreciation of its relative
rights and obligations in tbe Ktate and

no disparagement of Mr, Pbelan, and
would not oa disoaragement of any
man in tbe district, to say that Col.
Patterson is pre-eminently fitted for
the nosition and worthy to be chosen
by tho conveQtion as the Democratic
If sorvica already rendered to the
party in numerous campaigns should
be remembered, he can mrely point
to a mine of such service faithfully and
efllc'ently rendered, as any other
member of tbe party. Look back to
the canvass of 1882. Who carried the
Democratic forcei of the county to
Victory then? Wbo was so eloquent
and so cogent in bis appeals to tbe
people? Who was so enticing in leg
islative labor, and whose influence
waaso much felt in legislative action?
As a lawyer, Col. Patterson has no su
perior at this bar. His earnest enthu
siasm, his great physical endurance,
his powers cf discrimination and his
ability in cogent argument have placed
him in the front rank as an advocate,
while his legal attainments, his care
ful research and his strong common
sense have gained for him his high
position as a counsellor. The edu
cation of a successful lawver is
surely no inconcirternhlo qualification
for a lozlslator. The man who has
professionally studied the Stito and
federal conttltotion and lonrned the
practical workings of the State and
Federal laws, bs la d a gcd founda
tion for wise and ellicient work as a
Btateeman and law maker. Tba man
who baa learned in bis profession to
think profoundly and to reason clear
ly, has trained bis mind in the di
rection of the Congressional arena
In Col. Patterson's case the mind
thus trained wis naturally of a very
high order aud he has given amole
proof of its broad reach in political
lie'ds. onesurpass him in tbe use of
chaste and vigorous English and few are
his equ lis in the eloquence of cultured
thought and earnest conviction, tome
men seem bjrn for public position.
Their capacities nrge them to the large
sphere of intellectual conflict and their
endowments are developed by tbe de
mand of a struggle under tbe public
Such a man Is Col. Patterson. On
every occasion, thus far, he bas shown
a ready capacity for any public service
required of him. He is now urged, I
feel sure, by the instincts and adapta
tion of bis nsture, to aspire to a seat in
Congress. If he shall go, then he will
approve the wisdom of the choice, and
