ber of the Republican Ward and
City Commit ee of Btin, and in a
letter to Iltnry Parkman, Chairman
of thecoromitea, resigning bis mem
beisVip therein, hs says that "One's
chief political doty is to induce par

goes, the Repab'icau paity hss failed

Tbk appointment of Mr. Francis
Fentress, of Hardeman county, by
Judge Howell E. Jackson, to be super
visor of elections in the Western Dis
trict of this State, is a guarantee of a
fair election iu every county. Mr.
Feutrtsi is a cultivated gentleman of
conservative habits of thought aad a
progressive Democrat, who is strocg'y
in sympathy with the views of the
young Democracy, who are urgent for
the education of the" children of the
. people, and for Federal aid in the
accomplishment of that nobhst cf
.purposes. He in anxious to are the
material riches of the State increased
and to assist in the maintenance of a
public sentiment favorable to the in
vitation of popnla'ion and capital from
. other Slates and from itarope. Thus
broad and liberal in his views, and
having the confidence of the people,
whom he has many times addressed
on subject j of public importunes, be
may be relied u-oa to Bee the law
fairly enforced, and to administer his
tract impartially, honorably and cred
itably. As will be seen from our Washing
ton dispatches, Secretary Lamar has
been the recipient of many indorse
ment! from the press aad from public
men for his prompt refusal to revoke
the commission of Maj. Wagner, Pen
sion Agent for East Tennessee. Jus
tice Field, an old time and staunch
Democrat, who has been 'several times
nominated for President by Demo
cratic conventions, thanks him from
the bottom of his heart for the ex
pression of sentiments so just, so
reasonable aid bo patriotic. The
Washington Star characterizes his
act as manly and his let'er
as "a masterpiece of healthy
logic and vigorous expression."
The Critic says it was "just, magnani
mous and patriotic," and that it "con
veys a peculiarly impressive lesson."
These are a few of the opinions ex
pressed, but they are sufficient to
show how magical is the effect of a
just ac'.ion, and how ready the people
are to applaud sentiments and pur
poses looking to an oblitera ion of the
sectionalism that stood to long in the
way of the material progress and pros
perity of the Sculh. Secretary Lamar
has by this let'er increased the confi
dence the people had' in him, and it
makes for Cleveland's administration

Ko o a man in or ont of the Santa
has done more, or perhaps as much,
lor its advancement as Mr. John H
Inman, still a n stable figure on the
Cotton Exchange of New York, but
better known in this part of the coun
try for his connection with the Louis
ville and Nashville railroad. During
the past ten years he has made several
tours of the Sonth, and always with
company carefully selected by bim
for the individual and collective in
fluence of its members upon the
money market of the country and their
power to influence capitalists to in
vest in the South. Oaly last winter
he piloted such a distinguished com
pany all over the South, and brought
them to this city, where they
expressed themselves very gener
ously and in most favorable terms
as to the immediately available
and vast and teeming material riches
of the Southern States, their climatic
advantages, and the generally favora
ble sentiments of the people. The
result of this tour was a series of let-
inters to the Evangelut, which have
ecenuy ueen put in oook lorm ana

The good and benefit following upon
hese ton's, and these kindly and
bmpathetio letters, cannot be esti

Tne Mver (a?f, that has occupied
the ct enti n of the C Lninai Court
and t':in rta iiug public for the pun
f iw days, cu'mina'ed yesterday in a
Verdict of acquittal. Tl:e'ear( va-ious
s'ories ss to the jrrry'a d-.-liherationr,
one version being that th firs', ballot j
resulted, in a unanimous verdict of
not guilty. However that may be, it
is tvidt nt that the jury lost no time
in coming to an agreement, and when
they were called into court yesterday
morning, the foreman, in reply ta
Judge Duboee'fl inquiry, announced
that the jurv had agreed
upon a verdict. The courtroom was
crowded, ard a deathlike stillness
preceded the ntteranceof the words
that were to decide the prs:nr's
fa'e. Meyer sat in bie usual place
near the Attorney's table, with his
faithful and devo.ed little daughter,
Ca rie, by his tide. He turned just a
shade paler as the foreman opened his
lips to speak the latelul wo:ds. The
suriience sbaied in the eager interest
which he ma-Jfes'ed, and every ear
was strained to catch what the foreman
sa'd. "We, the jury, find the
defendant not guilty" paid ihe fore
man, and bamly had Ihe words es
caped from his lips when Meyer
s aittd from his chair, and with weep
ing eyes and heaving breast atteaapttd
to thank the jury, but his words were
Inst in the applause of the audience,
who clapped their hands and stamped
their feet in approval of the result.
Judge Dubnse sternly checked this
demonstration, and Mi-yir sinking
into his cba r cWped lililn Carrie in
bis arms, and, lrcktd in
each other's embrace, father and
daughter gave wav to tears of mingled
grinf and joy After the violence of
thtir emoiinn had sub-ided, Meyer
rose, und Accompanied by IU b,tt e
tlrl left the courtroom, sfter stippirg
t) rec-ive the congratulations thar.
wfra showered upon him. Carrie,
who had become quite a pet with
those who have watched the trial
frura the beginning, came iu for a
large share of praise, it being the
opu ion tf shrewd obtervers that the
ep-ttscle cf the sweet, devoted, bright
lu'le girl had much ta do with saving
the father's lifo.
Meyer wa'ked abaut the city yester
day and was evaiywhere warmly con
gratulated. To an Appbal reporter
who saw him last n ght be said bis
hand was quite lame with shaking la
reference to rep:.r td statements as ta
bis future movements, be said that he
would' remain in Memphis for the
present, as be owed some money here
and did not desire to leave until his
obligations bad ben fully discharged.
His wife he said would leave for her
father's home in Ca!ro, III., trday. His
1 tt'e girl Carrie he intended to keep
with him, not only now but always,
no; permitting her to absent herself
from him under any circumstances.
"Wherever I go she shall go; I will
never leave her again."
, Meyer showed very little inclina
tion to talk, faying that his past im
prudence in talking to reporters had
uught him a very severe lesson.
'J be verdict occasioned very little
surprise, and had bsen very ienerally
discounted. No one that saw the
scene in the courtroom when little
Carrie testifisd ever believed in con
v c ion. The jury were moved to
tears at her distress. That was
enough. Ti e counsel for the defence
realized that from that moment their
man vaaiife. The opinion was shared
by the members of the bar generally
and the attaches of the Courthouse,
and from there it spread to the general
public, urtil a verdict of acquittal was
generally looked lor.

lady as the King's pegs to commit an
abominable crime. Many Christians
were tortured, mntilated and speared,
and thiity-two were burned alive to

were unavailing and did not s-rve

the massacre many natives were bap

Yuur fnvor of this date is jujt to

tempt had been made to wreck the
train on whicii the Hon. R L. Taylor
was returning from a Deuicc a'ic

and that the train w s stoned. The
last staUment is utterly 'u se; tho
train was not stoned and such a thing
was never huard of until it appeared
in the Tribune. The train left Mnr
vide after dark ard I was in the coach
next to the engine. The engineer
whistled down brakes and stopped li s
train. I went out to the front of
the engine and feucd that a
fencarail and not a trcsstie wai on the
track. This was In a deep cut, whfre
a rail fence is on the edge of the cut,
and frequently rails fall off the fences
in such places and obstruct the
track. I am sure the rail
had fallen off the fence
by accident, as if anynno had wanted
to obstruct the track it would hive
been fasy to procure mo.e tails or old
c roe sties and made the obitiuc
tion more dangerous. Tbe peo
