MEMPHIS. TENN., THUHSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1886.
VOL. XLVINO. 209
Thb finances oi the State cannot be
Baid to be in good condition when the
Treasurer baa to confess to an over
draft of $40,030, and admits that even
after January another overdraft may
be neceaeaty. While we do not wish
to see a too plethoric treasury, we
think there should always be enough
in the hands cf the Treasurer to meet
the public nfcwsitirs. The present
condition of things is hnralliatirg,
and it is ta be hoped tht the next
Legislature in making op its appropri
ation bill will make ample provision
to prevent a repetition of it and pro
Tide for all possible contingencies, and
so put a stop to this method of bor
rowing by ths Treasurer. It h not
Thb Democratic members of the
Legislature will not, we feel quite
ture, ba argued, coax-.d or cejo'ed
into holding a caucus. The State
convention declined to indorse that
held by the Etst Tennef see Dem
ocrats, and all the traditions
of the party are opposed to
it. The peop'e of the Stt3 of Ten
nessee like nothing so mush a fa r
play and a free and open contest for
office. Let us have that in January.
Let every c'andidats far every office
in the gift of the Legislature feel sure
of a free field and no favors, and there
will be no room for caviling, no room
to question the fairness and just
ness cf party methods.
fc'KNATOB Blaib hue great faith that
bis Federal aid to education bill will
pass the House this session. Leading
Democ rats in that branch of the Na
tional Legislature, convinced by what
George and Vanes and Hampton have
raid in the Senate, are now satisfied
that It is a popular ai d cot a partisan
measure, because it nmurea the South'
ern States especially a help that is
much needed in educating the negro.
Schools have made the West what it
ip, and it is schools that we need in
the South ti moke self reliait, ener
getic and industrious, as well as broad
and liberal minded men and women

civilization, as it is its best and most
Thb Boston Herald rashly ventured,
in utter ignorance of the tacts, re
cently to bay that "Woman suffrage
stands just where it did when the
reform began, .and makes no prac
tical progress." To this the YtomarCt
Journal makes response, and says
"Twenty years ago women cauld not
vote anywhere. Today they have
school suff.aga iu thirteen States, full
suffrage in three Territories, and mu
nicipal suffrage (single women and
widows) throughout 'England, Scot
land, Ontario, Nova Scotia and British
Columbia. If woman euffrage con
tinues to temain ttationary at the
same rate for twenty years more, its
advocates ooght to be tolerably well
r-atitfied with the state of things at the
end of tfcat time."
Lord Alfred Tennyson has out
lived his usefulness, he has gone be
yond hie time. His poem received by
telegraph and published in the Ap
peal of yesterday ie point in proof.
The world has progressed too fast for
him and there is too muoh liberty.
The distinction between classes is fast
fading out and the euffrage conferred
upon the plowman and the shepherd
. is to ifim a degradation of the
ballot. The venerable poet laureate
belongs to a class who see
with regret that the old-time national
costume?, cumbersome thougb pict
uresque, are going out of use,
thanks to the ' store-clothes ven
der, and that the people, the toil
ing masses, are availing themselves of
public schools f or the education that
enriches and ennobles the mind. The
old dotard is in love with the rotten
borough system and all the rest of the
infamies by which in England ignor
ance and vice were perpetuated and a
degraded and poverty stricken people
were kept. in sodden slavery. Poor
old poet. He is a warning to all
rhymEters, to all who twist and dis
tort language out of the lines of direct
ness and strength into the involve
ment of jingle. Would it not be a
good thing to bang a poet once in a
Meb. Helm Campbell, a real phi
lanthropist, who has devoted a great
deal of time in a generous spirit to a
truthful exposition of the condition of
ihe working women of New York, in
last Sunday's Tribunt has an article in
which she deals' with the most dis
couraging and pitiful phase of the
great labor problem the condition,
namely, of those working women who
are incapable of any other industry
than sewing, and who toil inceet&ntly
to no- better purpose than keeping
starvation at arm's length. The life
of this class seems to be an almost
hopeless slavery. Sixteen hours a day
for $3 60 a week. That is their exist
ence. No time for even meals. These
must lie taken snatched, rather
standing. When the long, exhausting
day is over the women throw them
selves upon their wretched pallets and
sink into a sleep that is almost a stu
por. The instant their eyes open in
the morning they must resume work,
and this is the routine so long as there
is any work to do. Sometimes the
supply fails, or the eea?on ends, and
then a good many of the workers mutt
starve, for it is net porsible for tbem
to save anything out of the pittance
they earn. It is the story of the "Spng
of the Shirt" over again, and, -too, in
this "land of the free and the home of

I BP ECU I, TO THE APPIAL.l
Little Bock, Auk., December 22
Tho Circuit Court, J uuge Martin pre'
eiding, was engaged today in hearing
testimony in the case (1 Ubenanlt vs,
the Gazette Printing Company, in an
action tcr libsl. W. S. Ttrry and T.
E. Gibbon defended, while J. B. Mc
Laughlin and Mr. McKinney prose
cuted the case, ine piaintiu, Uloe
nanlt, is an old negro 65 years of aga.
and lives on the Caotrell farm, five
miles below town. The courtroom
was crowded with spectators, all
anxious to hear the testimony, which
from the ntture of the cae promised
anadulturated richness, wtiile the
outcome was predicted by all who
understood the annimus that prompted
the institution of the r-uit. Last July
the Gazttte printed a news item stating
that Uheoatilt and one Mcfarland,
both colored, were hav:ng a great deal
cf tiouble in the justices' courts
of the city because of the
brutal treatment of Cuenault toward
McFariand, who had been in the em
ploy ot Cuenault. A reporter inter
viewed McfaramJ, and Iiom mm
learned the causa for Cbenault's con
duct was that ths old man was mar
ried to a 16 year old wile and that be
was j'-a'eus of him. Every time he
asked for a settlement Chanault boat
him, aod growing tired of this he
put the matter in the hands of the
law and had his persecutor brought
before the court. From this statement
Mr. McLaughlin, who entertains
little aSixtion (or the Gatttle, induced
Chensult to bring an action tor $10,000
libel. This he did, and some of the
testimony brought nut at the tiial
was richness itself. The defense
called Cbenault's wife, also her father
and several other important wit
nesses, from all of whom testi
mony was adduced which place the
article complained of in a justifiable
light before the jury, which, on the
case being given to them, lost no
time in rendering a verdict for the de
fense. This is the second libel the
Gazette has hasten for Mr. McLaogh
lin within the patt two ' months. It
still has one in the courls that of L.
Jones, Republican candidate for
County Treasurer at the late election
in this county, but it is thought this
will be settled before the case comes
