of the system of records by which the

is traced is evidenced by the fict that

thousands carried under contracts of

credited wbh whatever time they may
have served as cadets or as enliBted

their validity is now pending before
the Supreme Court, it is not deemed
proper to comment on thia class of

of readjusting the accounts on the

The prosecution of these claims is
cited as an evidence of the necessity

there were many pale faces among

how it was potsible for a train to run

Bnnday is not forbidden Th.-re are
t wo exception! woiks cf charity aud
workx ot neces ity. I think no one
wou'd call it a work ct charity to make
men work all seven days ot tue wetK,
tbongh it might be iharitible to some
members of oar community to Bave
tbem from laving out more money in
enlarging waiehouses when trade is to
dull. Then it rema ns to be decided
whether it is a work of necessity ; if so,
let ub work away wiih all our powers,
contident of Ocd's bltesirg on the
labor: but if Dot. let us rest on Eun
day, giving tbaoks to our Heavenly
Father, who has blessed us with such
sp endid crcp, lest if we be untnanx-
ful for His good gift) He eend the
curse cf a blighted' season upon us.
It is said that if we do
not work hard and keen the crop mov
ine the planters will Bbip eleeabere;
but why not let them, if we have more
than we can poBnoiy tianuie s .every
houss in Memphis is doing a
snlenbid business, and why try tt do
still more at the expenee of the cleik,
who bave to work cay and night, and
Sundavatoo? It surely cannot be ne-
ceesitv to work a man until he has
time to think of nothing but cotton.
True, the clerks are willing to do it,
because if they do cot they will lose
their positions, which aie
and therefore work on Sunday or any
other time is a necessity to them,
But tbe heads of firms is it necessity
with tbem that cansrs Sunday work?
We pray "Give cs this day our daily
bread": not give us this dcy our
bread for the iet cf our lives, and
some to leave for our children. Aie
there any of cur prominent cotton
men who do not'receive their daily
bread? Let them and iheir clerks
work on Sunday. If the planteis like
our market so well that the amount
shiDDed here is more than we ran
handle in six days, why not build
more warehouses and take
on extra cltns, the factor
do B not pay for tbe storing, the plant
er decs that. Why try to crowd 12,000
bales inn a warehouse of tJOOU rapacity
unle?a we wwi to make Ine planter a
present of etorage on ti003 and cannot
afford to do it otherwise? The com-
nrceses. els , which ere running night
and day, and still ara unable to prees
fast cnouiib, are cot sutncient ior so
lame a market. Kverv vtar. at the
busiest time, business is chicked for
tbe want of more rcmpreeses and more
can prets room. The fault is laid by
(he compress on tbe railroads; but if
tbe railroads will not put on enougn
cars, then the compresses ought to
have enough room to etore the cotton
until moved by tne railroad!.
with tbelr extra storage room would
pay for themselves at least ana mignt
imt monev in somebodv's pocket: of
course not so much as ore doing the
work of two now does. There is no
more necessity for Sunday work in
Memphis than there is in Scotland or
anv other place where biinoay ia
strictly kept, but there are certainly
fir more of this worlds goods to De
gained, and if we desire to lay np
treasures for ourselves on earth where
mat and moth doth corrupt and
thieve break through and steal, let us
not interrupt tbe Mow of dollars into
our pockets on Sundays, for the time
we nave to eat, onnx ana De merry in
this world is verv abort, but surely it
would be much b-t'er for each one of
ua to sav with Joshua: "As for me
and my house, we will eerve tbe
Lord." Let us then not forsake the
assembling of ourselves together on
Sundavs to return thanks for our
many blessings, lest onr ungrateful

has resigned from the presidency and
the position of editor in chief ; that
thera are dimensions on the editorial

Chicago, III., November 11. The
report telegraphed from here early
this evening tbat tbe sirike Was tt en
end was ba'ed upon direct informa
tion from tbe pickers. At IU o clock
p.m. information is received from the
same source that the report proves to
be without f jundt.tion. Mr. Ha'ely, of
the Executive Ctmmittee of ths Pack
ers Aesocration. eays the statement
that the strike had been declared off
by the Knights was a niitttake. Be does
not undertake to explan how tha
mistake was made, and can only ray
tbat enortly before 6 o clock p m. the
park era Were in rece'pt of information
which, thcugb not oflicia , was consid

Barry and LaMeton, members of the
Knights of Labor General Executive
Committee, denied to reporters ehortly
after b o c ock p.m. that toere bad
been any change at all in the tttttta of
the strike. A meeting of the strikers
ia in eeEsion tonight at the yards,
wbieh is being attended by Messrs.
Bairy and Carleton. Before entering
tbe ball, at 8 o'clot-k p.m., Barry and
Careton were questioned concerning
the reported collapse cf the strike.
They denied emphatically that there
was any trutn whatever ia tne state
ment Mr. Carleton, who arrived this
moiaing aa a representative of Mr.
Powderiy to investigate the eitua'.Ioo,
said that so far from, the etrikers hav
ing surrendered, ihey were iull of en
thusiasm and confident of ultimate
victory. So far as be had been
ahle to asceitain today, there wes
little or co probability of the
strike endins until the men
had won their point, namely: that tbe
packers concede a technical recogni
tion of tbe principle of eight hours
work ff r emht hours pay. or at least
allow the mutter ti be arbitrated. Tbe
statement that Mr. Powderiy had
wired Mr Carleton to order the etrike
off was a lie on its fees. Mr. Carleton
bad onlv arrived in Chicago this morn
ing, and it was absurd to eupp se tbat
he would be peremptorily commanded
to end tbe strike without being given
any time to fu fill the mission which
brought him here. Ihe news con-
cernioa Mr. Powderly's alleged tele
gram had been received in Chicago
over a speculator a private wires, ana
both Mr. Larleton and air. Barry de-
clared without reserve the belief tbat
tbe report saying tbe strike was off
bad been given out solely lor Block
jobbing purposes.

Judge Brewer, of the United Stites
District Court, who has been engaged
for the rast week listening to the ar
guments of counsel in the already
famous disputed Hot Spiinga land
suits, today rendered his decision in
thirteen ol them. Wm. H. Gaines, of
Hot Spnnga, is the principal claimant
of the land at present before the court.
He received a favorable decision in
seven of the thirteen cases so far de
cided. All parties to the suits reside
at the Soring?, and the people who ob
tained titles to the propeity by years
of residence thereon evince no dispo
sition to be bsaten out of what
they believe to ba their own
Tbe decision of the Court
reverses the finding made some years
