JAMES rHELAN, of Shelby.
Democracy means republic a gov
ernment by the people, for the peo
plea fcrm of government in
which the anpieme power is in the
banda of the people, and diiectly ex
ercised1 by them constitutional
representative government. Frmnded
on each principles the. Democratic
piny cannot die and the repablie
live. It bat crushed out every organ
ization that has confronted it. For
nearly a century it has been the Sul
livan amncg political sluggers. The
issues which created the Kepubliran
parly bave been settled and the people
ba ve drifted back to their Dermal per
sitnn as Democrats, and in a few years
the IVpublican party will be con
s'gned to the tomb in which has
rotted every organization that has
condonled the unconquerable Do
mocrvy. In the l.st Prc-sidei tial
election Blaine carried Maine by a
. majority of over 20,000. Thecflltial
vnte of tbe recent election shows
a Republican majority of only
8!)78, and a plurality of only
12,860. In 1884 the Republican
plurality for (iovernr in Septem
ber was nearly 20,000, and the majori
ty over all was 15,000. Even in Maine
the Republican party is on the wane
"growing f mall by degrees and brail-
tifnlly Iee." In the South the Re
publican party has ciumblod into
nothingnee. It has no organisation
in Georgia; it is defunct in South Cur
oliua; itaimunts to nothing in Ah
liama and Misaieslppi, and in North
Caroline, the S.ate which was to be
. transferred to the Republican parly,
the organ za ion has been disbanded.
There Is no Republican party in the
South, where it once ruled and ruined
by disfranchising . tbe white taxpay
ers and enfranchising the inorAnt,
non-taxpaying negroes, led by car
petbag robbers. It was never founded
on any fundamental principle, rave
the principle ol public plunder, pf mc
cutlon and wrong. Its existence in tbe
South was inspired by no demand of
the pecp'e. It was without use
fulness. It conserved nothing thnt
was valuable and suggested
nothing new that was not
dangerous. It took no ho'd upon t'je
popular heart aid never sought that
for which alone paities are desirable
tbe public good. Its reason for ex
istence was simply that it might rob
tbe con mon treasury under the forms
of luw, and it has gone the way of all
bodies of plunderer?. It has been
tried and found wanting. The history
it bas made is a blot upon the annals
of the ccuntry. It !h a reooid of oul
' clal corruption, of political violence
and deception that has rarely been
-equaled since the -world began. It has
refit ced npon the whole land, North,
South, Eaat and West, and it is very
gratifying now to realize that it is
finally being ended by the will of the
sovereign majority. The Republican
party is undoubtedly, so far as the
Bouth is concerned, In articvlo mortis,
and the death cf so pesti'ent
an organization will not be mourned
by any one who is a patriot. Here
in the Tenth Tennessee CongretBional

A iuventlon and the inert ased in

machinery men wcrk as long as he

tlnr will ni t be work enough for all

by many thtnkrrs, and these propo e

Increasing manufactures in Mem
phis are causing many to ak whether
shops and factories that from oolse
pestilent; vapors, dirt, or otberways
are source of discomfort or damage to
their neighborhood, must necessarily
be submitted to. A case Bier vs.
Cooke tried in the Supreme Court of
New ' York, throws light npon this
point Bier was tenant of a hours ad
joining Cooke's planing mill and sash
and blind manufactory. He com
plained of the noise, vibration, smoke,
steam, vapor, cinders and soot from
the concern, inter! ering with his com
fort, etc. The mill bad all the modern
appliances to reduce those nuisances.
but notwl hstandlag the Court 'gave
the p'aintiff dam'ges and enjoined
the defendant, Cooke, from continuing
so to operate bis mill as to make
steam, Biucke, toot and cindors a nui
sance or annoyance. The Court laid
down that there were various incon
veniencies in city life that were una
voidable and must hs endured,
yet protec'ion is given by
the law against carrying on
business concerns so ss mate ii ally to1
injure properly or health or cause
physical discomfort. The owner or
occupant of premises has ro exclusive
property In the air, but be can de
mand that it shall be free from gase?,
vapors, emoko, cinder i a ad matter in
jnrious ti enjoyment, health or com
fort; noise and vibration come under
the same rnle. What disturbs repose
or substantially interferes with the
comfortable enjoyment of neighbor
irg premises will bo held as a nuis
ance. The tanant who sufTars the in
jury must be the complainant, tbe
owner only whre the nuisance pre
vents the renting of his tenement.
The subject is one of much intereet to
both uianu'aoturing establishments
and occupants of dwellings; to one
there is a warning, to the o'.her a
Bource of rallef.

that within week aquar.tmergr.inbt

after three months ot attemp'ed living
in the wilds of San Franc sco, and is

or five deep indentations traverse his
high lirehead, i bowing tbat tbe up
holding of a hundred or two millions
of dollars Is by no means tbe eaey task
that it is currently reported to be.
Sitting in his handsome c flics in tbe
.Bank of Nevada ycbterday he received
a reporter.
"I know of absolutely nothing to

"Oh. that d v) not eigriify," eaid
Mr. Mackay with a smile. "You know
how liable newapapers are to do
strange things. I do not think tbat
indicates anything at all. Mr. Bennett
is not running hia rewpaper."
Tbe reporter insisted t'aat Mr. Ben
nett's orders regirdingtbe handing
cf Jay Gould and things of that sort
wt ra pretty ehsrply obeyed on his pa
per, and a flop of tne nature rot d
was not very hke'y to take place with
out a lesaoo.
"Well, I have not seen Mr. Bennett
for over a year," said Mr. Mackay,
"but I know of no reason for believing
tbat there is any news in tbe cab e
world at present. As for me, I get too
much newspaper notoriety, I do not
seek it, acd I do not rike the way

Ye', and what tronnense that is.
The editor of the Morning News knows
better than that. I am surprised tbat
he should allow such stuff in his

why I shou'd purcba e a home in

Mr. Mackay suddenly developed a

shut off the fount of information at a
vory delightful point and compelled

With 111a Brain 1'relrnSlua; From

London, Saptember 24. A sensa
tion has been produced by the an
nouncement of tbe di.-covery of a
myster ous tragedy in a compartment
car. The discovery was made last

from the city oa the underground
railway arrived at the Queen's Fold

ticed blood dripping from t'ie com
partment of a first class carriage. He
raised an alarm and a gentle
man was f und lying on Ihe floor of
the compartment, lie was uncon
scious and blood as flowing freely
from ha head. It was found that on
his forehead there was a deep wound,
four inches in lorig'h. This bed evi
dently been made with an ins rument
sharp and heavy. The scalp was not
only cut ch ar through, but the skull
was crushed in and the brains were
pro rnding. On the man's person
were found a go d watch and chain
and some finger rings, Lone
of which bal been disturbed,
but very little money. The man wai
at once conveyed to tha hoephal. He
is still unconscious, and his condition
is precarious. It has been learned
that hia name 1b Mori'za Fischer, and
tbat he is the head of toe house of M

There is a quieter tone to trade at New

years, and in nearly all instances
meets the more cmservative of the

The Wall si ret t stcck market is ex

$0,5,900 last week. Foreign ex
