Kansas Cltj He 1 ells About the Best
Xanag-ed and Most Ecomlcul
Wherever Ptesident Hidden may
happen to be the newspaper reporters
gravita'e toward him as naturally as
needle to magnet, lis etopnea in
Kansas City a few hours the oiher day
on his way to Salt Lake, and report
er oi the Star, of that city, who ttckled
mm. gives I lie following arconnt ol
the interview:
"The chance of the city government
of Memphis," said Mr. HaddeD,"came
about as tbe result ol a combination of
circumstanefs. It was really forced
upon us as the only means that could
ba devised to relieve the city of treat
embarrassment, but what came of ne
cessity has proved so great a blessing
and advantage that no one desires to
go back to the old system. The situa
tion was just tbi: Five or six years
ago the city of Memphis was over
whelmed with debt. She owed over
$6,000,000, more tnan half of wbii'k
was the result ot an unfavorable de
cision ! elating to aeseesments upon
property owners for afreet improve
ments. The city bonds wore celling at
30 cents on tbe dollar, nod we were all
the time being subjected to mandamus
proceedings in toe Federal Couit,
wnicb il continued would have pre
vented all possibility of tbe city
reccvenrg is eredite. under
these . circums anc a we went to
the.Legislaturd and invoked its aid.
What we wanted was to keep out of
the power cf tbe Federal courts, so
that lorelgn bondholders could not in
voke lheir authority to compel imme
diate payment c f tbe bonds as they
fell due. And by tbe act of tbe Leg
islature we succeeded in accomplish
ing our objret to the extent at all
events of obtaining breathing time.
The city of Memphis has to all intents
and purposes passed out of existence;
and tbe government and control of its
affairs passed into the hands of an
other sot of ofliciaU created by an act
coneittuting the Taxing District of
rjnelby county, ot which Memphis
formed a part. These officials are
three Commissioners and a Board of
Public Works, consisting ol five mem
bers. Four new members are elected
every year by a popular vote of all the
residents of the Taxing District.
There are no wards and no divisions
of the district. The Commissioners
and tbe members of the Pub ic
Works Board go belofe the
entire constituency and the evils that
ariee from men being elected to repre
sent certain sections of a city are thus
avoided. We act as ollicers obtaining
all their authority Irom tbe State Leg
islature. We have no power to make
or remit taxes, nnr yet to incur debts.
The tax for the District is made by the
Stale Legislature on the basis of esti
mates agreed upon in tbe budget pre
pared at the beginning of each year,
tbe i resent tax being 30 cents each
for fire and police, 12 cents for light
im. 10 cents for publio schools, 10
cents for hcspilal, 75 cents for interest
on bond?, and tbe balance up to a to
tal of 32 25 on the $.00 for stieets,
sewerage, sanitary and other purposes.
As officers of the State we claim that
the principle of States' rights prevents
tbe Federal courts from mandamus
iog the members of the commiBS on,
but wben suits are brought againet us
we have tbui far prevented
that question being forced to
a decision, and before that
was reached a plan of comproraife has
always been discovered. Under this
arrangement we have ueen ai:e to re
duce the city debt from S'.OOO.OCO to
$3,125,000, and have settled on an
average of oO cents on the f l, which is
20 centB more than the holders of the
bonds gave for tbem ; and there has
been no at'.empt to dispute any honest
claim. Our bonds aie worth $1 05 on
the $1, and are at the rate of 4 and 6
per cent, interest. But tbe restoratloa
of tbe finances of Memphis has not
been all that baa been accnrap'Uhed,
not even the last part. In a com
mercial sense, Memphis ranks next I
believe to Kansas City in the growth
of ila businrss and tbe steady increase
of its baok clearings. It is the leador
of all tbe Southern clues. We have
also reached condition of absolute
cleanliness, so tbat we have no fear of
any return of pestilence or of the rav
ages of con'.aveous diseases. Our gar
bage eyitem is complete and perfect.
it costs t-JU,uoo a year, Dut no one
would think of crippling its efficiency.
We clean the streets and alleys ot ttie
city and rtmove all garbage and
liquid slops from private residences at
the publb expense. It is done under
the authority ol a iiiara ol lieaitn
consisting of the eminent physician
Dr. O B. Thornton as lis chairman, a
Health Officer, the Superin'endent of
Police, and the President of the T. x
Commission. For the removal of
lqu'd oflentive matter we have
sealed catts. and they are provided
with charcoal lamps which consume
everything in the shape of escaping
bad odors while they are pa'sing
through tbe streets. Then we have
the Waring or teparate system of sew
erage bv which every house is directly
connected with seweis which are
flushed foor times a day, bat are not
used for street drainage. At to tbe
garbage system, let me fay that we
have found it of marvelous advantage,
and it ia wonder to me tbat Kansas
City can be content to do without it."
How He Might Have Avoided Trouble
O d Mrs. Tiddlewlg's husband liked
his toddy, and the o'd lady was vio
lently oppoted to his bibulosity. The
o'her night Tiddlewig came in slightly
sober and bis wife proceeded to talk
to him:
"Now look here, Tiddlewig, you're
thinking egun and 1 just won t en'
dure it.''
"Wbv, my dear," he urged, "a li'tle
tiddy don't hurt me a particle. On
tbe contrary, it benefits me and make;
another man of me altogether."
''I know it dotH, Tiddlewig, and
that's why I object to It so strongly. I
nvght etand your getting drunk, but
when it makes another man of you
and still leaves me tbe wife of both t f
you, it makes me out a bigtmist, mil
I say right here. Tiddlewig, tbat I
diaw tbe iine at bigamy, and you've
get to quit."
If Tiddlewig had taken tbe pre
caution to us4 Ko-Ko Tula- bis wife
would never have snepected him.

Tm coltou crop 18S5-SG foots up
6,575,091 bales according to the official
report of the National Cotton ex
change. The prediction of the Na
tional Cotton Exchange last November
pointed to crop of 6,0)0.265. This is
good guessing, and taken in connec
tion with last yar'e prediction, indi
cates that the National Cotton Ex
change system cf forecasting the crop
is as near perfect as may be. For No
vember 1884 it predic'eJ a crop of
5,726,157 bales, and the crop aggregated
5,7i(i,165 bales, cot quite 20.003 bales
leas than tbe number predicted.
These two accurate estimates follow
ing each othrr will invest the future

The tinners employed on out of

fueed to go back to woik nntil an ob
noxious bylaw adopted by the con
tractors a short time ago Is repealed.
There are Btty-two 1 1 the mtm in tie
city and they are all members of a
union which was formed on May tub
last. They still'enod the wage scale
atd about June 1st snccseded in hay.
eg tbe cine hour rule enforced. The
averages wages paid are f 2 50 a day.
There are very fow who rcctive more.
Thoee employed on cornices got about
$3. They were all tatiBflad with their
pay and bed no complaint to make
except on account of the rule adopted
by the contractore, who organized an
ai-sociatlon in the latter part nf June,
tbat no tinner wou'd be employed by
one of them who could not show a re
lease card from his former employer.
Mr. W. D. Parker, the president of
the union, Thomas Dwyer, rerretary,
and Albert Robb, a member, called at
the Appbal cilice last night to state
their side of the cace.
"Our hours of work and the pay we
receive are perfectly sat'slactory to
ub, they said, "bat we don t care to
ba treated as slaves. With that rule
in force we are entirely at tbe mercy
of the bosses. If our surroundings
happen to be unpleasant, or if any
thing should cccur to make us desire a
change from one job to another, we
cannot quit like men, demand our
money aud ceek work eleewbere, but
we are forced into the humiliation ot
asking the permission of the contract
or to quit him. He can arbitrarily re
fuse a release card and force us to woi k
under him or starve. The thing is
ou'rageoos and we are determined not
to submit to it. UiH we nave no otner
reason for the action we took today.

The Slayer Visited by 1,ls
The Line or the .iro
The curtains which (hade the win '
dowa of the room where Will Dunna-
vanlfe 1 mortally wounded Thursday
afternoon wore closely drawn all day
yesterday, and last night the cmious
in the neighborhood were deprived of
the tableau cf affectionately inclined
shadows wbich the lamp light had to
often cast upon them in the absence
of the father of the family.
But it is not intended to convey the
impression that tbe domicile was in
gulfed in gloom, A decent quiet was
maintained when the heroine ol the
tragedy was at homo, but most of the
afternoon was spent by her and her
little girls at the Jail. Meyer was al
lowed to receive them in the sitticg
room, and while he was exceedingly
nervous and much depressed in spir
its, she wore her picuio clothes and
chatted gaily as she tat and gaily
swung in an improvised hammock, in
which jailor Ijawlesa has been accus
tomed to luxuriate in his leiBUie hours
during the eummei. The shop of
DunnavMit & liro.. in ti e alley back ol
Calvary Church, was cl;sid all tlay
and irape liui.g on the door, ibe
body was
by his sorrowing relatives for inter
ment. He was very well known and
quite popu'ar there, es the following
Irom the rtaehviue unwn cl yes e:day
will show: "It Mill be n groat sur-
rtee to the many mends ol William
I. Dunnavant in thia c.ty tolen'n that
he was guilty of such conduct. He
was the eon of W. P. Dunnavant, who
whs for many years a well known con
tracting carpenter, and who was a dea
con in the old Cherry Street Baptist
Church for many sears. The whole
family were members of the samo
church. The Dunnavant boys were al
ways regarded as steady, moral young
men. William Dunnavant married
here several years ago, his wife being a
most excelleut member of the tame
church with himself. He 'went to
Memphis to better his condition, and
It was not nntil he had been there sev
eral months that he took his wife
there, It is thought that hs must
have gotten into his bad habits while
first there. Tbe telegram to his rela
tives here produced quite a shock.
The community will deeply sympa
thize with them in their grea. dis
Meanwhile tbe coil is tightening
about tbe slayer, and it becomes
hourly more apparent that he dees
not have that deep publio sympathy
which was first extended to him, and
which would have been a cogentfac.
t r for h's good had it been sustained
up to and durir.g the trial. He was
t.ken b fore Justice Powell yesterday
for trial and tbe lawyers on both sides
cone uded to waive examination until
next Wednesday, when the relatives
of tbe dead man will have re'urned
borne from NftshviUe. Attorney Gen
eral Peters recommended that his bail
be fix d at MOOO, which was accord
ingly done, hut no sureties aptetred
yesteiday. Judge lJiioo-e nasnotitioa
the Slierill not to rtlace him until the
affair has been more thoroughly sifted
He fald yestnrday that he thought
there was enough in the published ad
mifsions of Meyer and lilswife, who
were the sole witnetser, to warrant
him in making such an older.
It Is said that the Dunnavant! have
very damaging letters in their posses
sion, one of them a request from Mrs.
Meyer lor Dunnavant to call upon her
on tbe fetal evening; al. o that she
sent ber Ji t tie girl to nls shop with a
similar message. In other words it Is
hinted that they Intend to marts a
powerfuU.effnt to prove a enspiracy
between husband and wife for the pur
ncse cf extorting blackmail, and will
enter a vigorous prosecution againtt
Meyer, xue prisoner has 'ltue money
for the employment of lawyers and
bis wife will do ber utracst to save
him and has already telegraphed her
father, Mr.Elis, who is said to be a re
tired merchant in good clrcuuiitances
at Cairo.

terday as bi introduced i'r. King to an
Aptial man, "He lives out at Cuba,
where a doc'Oi who can ne a needle
and saw on occasion may do nour
ishing business."
'It used to be tiVat way," Dr. King
replied, smiling, "but business in the
surgical line has been dull of late. Bat.
to tell you tbe truth, in the good old
times the surgeon usually arrived too
late, no matter how swiftly he rode.
They did their work too well dead
phots and renter slashers they were. I
don't think I ever got but one man on
hs feet after be had. been downed,
lie lost about a peck of hie inaides
and got well, but he was never very
cheerful afterward. As a rule, th'-y
had more use for an undertaker than
for a physician. But tbnt does has

went on, "Cuba Is a nico, quiet place

Woodstock I taw a e-talk of cotton

alf foet high with 500 bo Ha on it, and
tbey are opening by dozens every day.
Fact, I assure you," reassuringly de
clared tbe doctor as the reporter's eyes
began to bulge. "Tbat is tbe fruit of
sticking to work and lotting politics
alone. There are very few in my
district who care anything about
politics. All that do take an interest
subscribe for one of tbe daily papers,
and I can count them on my fingers.
Any candidates for the Legielatnre,
you ask? No, I believe not. Ed.
Wendle served once, but I don't think
he is tearing his shirt to get luck
again. He is one of those whole
souled fellows, you know, and it coat
him about $J0U0 to serve his country
one term. But thon, Ed does every
thing in the tame liberal, whole
hearted sort of way. Just let him
hear of a man being aick anywhere in
tbe neighborhood, aod, before you
know it, be haa packed up 100 pouuda
or so of ice, a bx of lemous and a lot
of dainties in bis drag, bounced into
it with his wile, and gone off to nti'se
him until he gets well. That's the
kind of a fellow EJ Is, and yet
there are tome people mean
enough to talk about him
because he drives a two horse drag.
They are of the same kind tbat uses

spirit westing out, though," Dr. King
continued "I find a general dispoHt
