MEM 1 T ' .Jil-.r. ESTABLISHED 1840. 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 Uful. 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 -The schoolhouEe is the best sign of civilization, as it is its best and most potent agency. 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 while? ' 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 ilia brave" A PASSENGER'S ERROR.

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 to trial. HELENA, ARK. Stoekalager-WileoB Naplailx.
