The meeting of Dernocrats at the
OourthouBO last night for the purpose
of organizing for the campaign and
the enthusiasin manifested, especially
by the . young Democracy, was an
augury of ceitain triumph in Novem-
ber. This movement Is moot
opportune; it Is none too soon, for it
is only two weeks and two days to
the day ot the .election. The rhelan
Club thus so auspiciously inaugurated
will do its duty during the next
two week, and every Democrat must
join in ho ding up its hands. Money
will ba required to pay the expenses
of the canvass, and every member of
the party whose business com pels bis
constant attention will no doubt con
tribute liberally In aid of those who
are giving their time and labor to the
ticket and the cause. .The
Fholan- Club, it is needless to say,
will work as sealously for the can
didates for the Legislature as for
our standard bearer for Congress,
whose name it his adopted. All
money contributed to it will
be used to promote the elec
tion ot the entire ticket. The candt-
dates for the Lsgislaturd are earn estly
performing tho'r duty by making a
thorough canvass of the county, and
Janus Phelan, our candidate for Con
gress, is carrying the banner of his
party through the district with an
ability which has won the admiration
of all classes of the people. lie
has an old, level head on young
shoulder.', and has mada no mis
takes. The hearts of the people
are with him. He deserves a
triumphant election, and this he will
achieve if the Democrats of the
district imitate the example of
the Phelan Club organ'zed last
night, the members of which
from this time forward will
avail themselves ot every avenus that
leads to victory. Every sensible man
feels and sees and. knows that the in
terests of the people ot this district
can be- mors elllclently promoted
by a Damocrat than a Repub
lican, beotnse we have a Demo
cratic administration engaged In the
task of purifying tbe government.
7-ach Taylor can have no Influence
with the Pesident nor with the Daino
cratio majority In Congrees. Phelan
will have influence with both,' and if
the people are wiss they will elect
him. This they intend to do, but it
will require woik, unceasing, active
work, to the olose ot the pol!s on tbe
second day of November. Thors must
be no apathy or indifference, There is
activs work for every Individual voter
ss well as for the Phelan Club. There
must bs a conoentratsd, irresistible
movement all along the lino.
The Russian bear is a vicious ani
mal, shaggy and brutal. lis has
clasped his crushing aims around
poor Bulgaria and bocausa the rude
and destroying hug makes tbe victim
cry out, the bear declares that the
ootcry ju't:fis him in eating up the
land that will not submit quietly t
it! deadly emb ace. Spite of all that
eavjg) tyranny can do, Bulgaria,
avoiding publio disorder, calmly, but
vigenudy and manfully, opposes
the tytant. That raw of tie bear,
3vaulbar, with his sha-p talons, has
plitid tt e victim with cunning wiles
and oflVre 1 splendid bribes rank and
gold; he has used insolence and ar
rogant threats to win the people to
conssi.t to the lots of their indepnnd
ence, and votifata'ed atrocious pro
vocations to larouee disturbances that
would give the mean tyrant he sei vei
came to interfere with aruiod band.
Bat the constancy and fidelity of the
,pecp!e, their manly s'cadhmtness,
has bsfllil his wiles and left
'his threats disregarded. S.iite ot

All honor to tbe brave Bulgarians.
What upright heart doss not bonor
them and eympatblzs with them T The
telegraph announces that In Bulgarian
affairs things have reached "ih acote
stage." What is to be the result?
Joust Bulgaria ba sacrificed to Basaian
greed fir territory ind nower. or will
the Eaiepean governments at length
consult their own future welfare by
puttiog their veto upon the cruel and
on ait Russian programme?
Daring the last tares or (jar years
the destructive poweis of natarehave
been at work upon the surface of oar
globe to an extent that is moat extra
ordinary. Old people ear they hare
no remembrance of any period when
there were foch frequent calamities I
in the same (pace of time, asd they
ask what bas come to th e old world?
Volcanoes roll oat destructive flimes
and caver the country around with
still more destructive ashes. Earth-
quikes shake vast territories and de-
stioy large cities, stretching their de
vastations to lands hitherto unac
quainted with more than rare and
faint tremors. Cyclones, hurricaaej
and tempests devastate the land and
destroy vessels upon the seas. Gi
gantic title', raised by winds of awful
velocity, sweep upon the shores, flood
cities, and sweep off crops, rattle
sod human lives. Waterspout i,
deluging rains, ar.d fusilad
ing bail Cirry consternation and de
Btruc'ioa over miles of country; and
lightning! sat dwellings 01 fire aid
explodo prowder mills asd coal oil
titks. Losses to propjity are ira
menre, crops and stock are swept cut
cf existence, and human lives are cut
short. Only a chapter out of the Book
of Revelations can describe the havoc,
the lose and the destruction, "men's
hearts failing them from fear." What
hat co no to this old world?
The high tariff causes a larger
amount of revenue to flow into the
Treasury than the public service has
need for, and the inquiry is made,
why should the country continue to1
pay the immense duties collected on
sugar? Tears ago a cry was raised for
a fros breakfast table. But tbe break
fast table is not free as long as $50,
000,000 a year is extorted from the
people as a penalty for using sugar.
Bugsr is a neceeeary of life necessary
tor the poor as well as the rich; neo
easary to make the cup "that chsers
bat not inebriates;" necessary in the
preparation of a large portion of the
food the people) consume. Is it neefs
sary as an encouragement to the
growth of sugar in Louisiana? That
growth is a mere fraction of what
the nation consumes; only one
seventh part of the whole.
Basldep, the exlravagaut tax
does not encourage the home
growth of sugar. L'ss cane sugar Js
produced in Louisiana today than was
produced during free trade times
before the war. In 1850 Louisiana
produoed 220,000 hogsheads of sugar,
in 1885 220,000 hogsheads. Therefore
the extortionate sugar tax does not
encourage home production. With a
surplus revenue, and with no good
protective effect secured, wby should
the extravagant sugar tax be retained?
We want a fres breakfast table.
Tho Cincinnati Itwlile, Dr. Wise's
Jawish organ, in lis last is:ue had en
article ragrettirg the decreased ob
servance ot the Sunday rett, owing to
the increase ot foreigners from lands
where little attention is paid to Ban
days, and quotes admiringly D-.
Holmes's saying: "He who ordained
the Sabbath loved the poor." Ia
ahnrt, tbe weekly rest day was any
thing but ono ol "tbe mistakes of
Mrses." The Itrculile proceeds to show
the absolute need ot a period of rest;
considerations of health, and the wel
fare ot man's mental condition require
as a rule, periodical repose from the
ordinary efforts and toils ot life. This
the nations of tbe continent and Eu
rope are beginning to disoover, and
proteMs are Bribing against carrying
on Ordinary occ upations on Sundays
That paper cays: "And it is just at
this stage of experience that men be
come crnvkced tf tbe evil (fleets of
the laxity ot law, and the wisdom ot
appointing one day in even as a day
of reel. For when life hts been re
duced to a dead and continuous nni
fortuity It has lost almost a'l
that made it valuable and becomes
an exhausting burden." Well in
formed In European matte re, the
Jirarffa relates that a movement is in
progiers in Germany for tbe beneficial
ebeervar.ee of Sunday, and among
various cUskw of the people tbe re
form is pushed vigorously. A Nurem
bu'g paper states that the Sunday
work was discussed at a recent meet
ing of the peper makers there, and a
resolution was unanimously passed to
clo:e the mills on Sunday at once. In
Oared the people assembled and peti
tioned the pcs'ofllce authorities that
nojapcis or letters be delivered on
Sunday, except such as are marked
"express." In Lunenberg and Griefs
wa d a powerful Nabbath Union fcns
b; en formed, and its object is to agi
tato in favor of the ceosation of lahor
as far as possible on Suudav. In
France and in Saitzerland similar
movements are in progress, the cry

sameness of tod without cessation, is
spreadiDg, as it ouuht.

Louisville Courier-Journal: Aitprcon-
sidirlng for a few 'lays the recent
change in the Louisville end Nash
ville road, ennfernrg with the rppre-
sjntalivtB of the stockholders, a-.d
wi.h them rarefully inveeticatinir the
condition of tho property, Mr. fcmitb,
at trie meer.iug n ine JU.rettors
yesterdny, signified h(s coneent
to serve as vice piesident and its
chief execut'veoflictr, the chief finan
cial officer being in New York. To
tbe merchants of Liui-ville and to all
interested in her prospeiily, tf is an
nouncement is especially gratifying.
Ic as ures them of the c-n-tinuanca
of a nmnagemeut which
is bold, aggreFsive, and in en
tire accord wiih their own vinws and
their industrial purposes. It nil! quiet
at least the grave Apprehensions
aroused by the action of those holding
tbe pr .'i 'es a1, the siockho'ders meet
ing on vednesday. It is eert jin that
if Mr. Smith accepts the po-ition.be
does it aseured by the directors
of their ' support in bis effort to
devolop the country, to build up trpfj
flc, and to secure for tbe city and this
eystepa a recogn't'on from nil rivals of
their commercial rights and privileger.
In the popular mind Mr. Smith repre
sents a tendency among transportation
companies to coi. serve tbe interests of
their patrons, a policy which subor
Cina'es temporary advantage to per
manent and increasing Buccecs. He
commands pnblic cocfiience and
public respect. ine inges
tion that be would leave the
road has caused treat apprehension
and nneasinest. It was a shock to
growing confidence in the company
and ia Its fccnriti' s, the effect of
which will bs felt for some time.
Moreover, it has awakened thinking
men to the corsiderat on of means for
restricting foreign capitalists ia their
disregard ot 1 p putar wishes and
popular rights. Already the peo
ple have declared against tbe
land syndicates, contro led abroed,
and now even the most careful
and conwrva'ive are striving to devife
some means, hot fir governing' roads
or regulating rut s, but for securing
minority representitiou on boards oi
direction, and public ty for all fioan-
c'al transactions that add to tbe fixfd
obligations of a propei ty. The stock
holders cf the LoufcvUe and Nashville
Company could find no one with whom
their great interest would he so Bafa
as with Mil'on H. Smith. No one is
so we'd qualified for the work that the
manager of this eysrem has to do as
is be. Ho one is more careful than
he of truets imposed upon bim. and
no one can so fully command popular
conndecceor secure to such a degrae
popular cooperation. The company
and tbe community ere alike to be
congratulated because of bis accep
ance of tbe position.

When tbe committee rt'red. on
motion Mr. Dennis Smith was isl'ed
upon for a Fpsech. He stated that the
obj-'ct r,f the meeting was to organize
the nomocracy ol tt e county so as to
te ibla to maxa on to vicV rjr in No
vember. '1 here w ere many who no
doult thnugbt that nwintt to tee late
Democrat c victc-rv in l.st Auaust in
the county eh ction, thnt the Repub
lican party was dead enl would be un
able to orgauize for Novemb r. but
this was a gr. at mistake; that par
ty is alive and it will require
tho entire etiength of the Democncy
to defeat the enemy. Mr. Smith eul
giza i the Democratic nominees for I lie
Legislature and for Congreesas woithy
of r uMic, confidenca and support. Ua
believed with many others that Mem
phis should own its water work, and
the DflmOi'ratic candidates may be
needed to aid in th'B work in the Leg's-
laturo. Tbe Democratic party
has an able leader in James Phe
lan, and the people should
follow him and aia a glori
ous victory. Mr. Smith drew a com
parison between the Republican acd
Democratic parties, and believed that
the hope of the country depended
npon the success of the grand old
Democratic party. They should go to
work at once with energy, and do ev
erything that can ba honorably done
to secure lha eleoiion of tbe Demo
cratic candida'e for Congress and tbe
candidates for the Legislature.
Mr. Smith's address was loudly ap
plauded by the meeting.
Col. Barteiu wa3 next called and
made a few stirring remarks, which
were highly enjoyed.
OA. II. M. Doak was the next
speaker, and that gentleman expressed
bis pleasure at seeing the movement
to oreanizs a Democratic club pro-
eres-ipg. Tbe party needed all the
organization and work possible.
Thev had a wide awake and
active foa to meet, and should be
ready to meet tbat foe et ail
points. The Demociatic party in
times past had its internal differences,
and has its differences at present on
many ques ions ; but when the great
issues i ame up they closed np ranks
and went together, forgetting the past.
The November election muet ba won
in order to ba prepared for the great
contest in 1888. He appealed to every
Democrat to go to work, do his full
duty, and labor f r the success of the
Democa'ic psrty.
Judge W. W. McDowell on bsing
called out, excused himself from mak
ing a epcech as he was snffi-ring from
sore tbrost and a severe cold. He re
maiked, however, that tbe Democra'B
should be up and doing-, ss he knew
that the Republicans were haid a'
work to defeat tbeDemoc acy in the
coming election. Tee August victory
was apt to make many Democrats
over confident, bit there must ba
thorounh organizit'on and then suc
cess will cron their effirts. Hade

dented Oranob, Tux., October 15. The fol
lowing late account of the destruction
by the storm at Sabine l'a;s and John
s n Bayou is given by the editor of
the Tribune, who was with the relief
party on the boat: The loss of iifa is
greater thsn here stated, but in the
confusion a full -is. of the names of
the lost was unob ainabla. Oirstesm
er found the rerxa nirg inhabitants
eufftriig for food and wa'er, aud from
tbe nights of teirible exposure, and the
work o! relieving them whs at once
begun. The water in tbe s'raeis of the
town was from one to two feet deep.
All. tbe tuffaiers were go ten aboard
the iteameraa speedily es pessiole
aud their wants supplied es best we
could. When ell were aboard, the
steamer pnt off for the lighthouse
tower, out of which a number of suf
ferers were taken. II re a
small craft was sighted ont
in tbe Gulf. The steamer
went out and picked up eight men,
the crew of a Mexican school r whi,;h
was swamped about ten miles iff the
pass. Having supplied all who were
hungry and thirsty, we eet cu'. for
Bt-aumont with ninety-thne residents
of Sabiue Pass aboard, moitly women
and children. On tbe way across tbe
bay Mrs. Oito Brown and a number
of the others were picked up, having
been rescued by tbe boats dropped by
the steamer in the r ornicg Beaumont
was reached at 12 o'clock, and here toe
prope p:ocseded at once to provide
for the furiher comfort of the suffer
ers. The s eimar wiil return at once
to the pe:ss aud then proceed to
Orange after doing all in her power for
the d:s rested prpie. A f-ni'.ll host
tent out to Jolmtou's bay.-.u returned
to tbe steamer in the af erncon with
the most die tressiDg reports from tbat
C03imunity,huudreds of persons being
drowned as well ss fearful and complet
des ruction of property, including
thousands of hea l of live etock. Tne
Cameron Beach Hotel was seriously
threatened, t ut wai sived by cattle
crawdiig into the loweretory, thereby
preventii tj tbe building Iro n fliating
off with l's upper it ries filled with
tenor stricken humrnity. The Euily
P. and ttie relief party ftom Johnsons
bayou are yet unhe ird fr.m, aid fill er
particulars of the diaister in that
Bection cannot be given un il her
return. It is ea;e to say that no euch
deatruct'oa of life and ptoperly was
ever kno.vn be'ora on the Gulf of
Mexico, acd h;lp will he ne.dtd and
is arked fr m ail quaitera of ths
country. Tbe people are with
out clothing or shelter, and the sur
lounding coun'iy is too poor to tup
ply their very urgent needs. At the
late t s x bodies had been picked up
at the mouth tf the Sabine liver, hav
ing floated across the lake, a distance
