KNOXVILLE, TENN.: FRIDAY MOKNDJG, JULY 2, 1880.
10.30 r M.
The tffect of Tom'a Btable talk will
become painfully apparent tomor
row. The Morristown Gazette doesn't
talk the way its editor dcea on the
Gen. Garfield's letter -of accept
ance will be ready on the 12th iust.
Soldier vs. ttateemaD. Accoiding
to good democratic authority, the lat
ter should be chosen, and we do not
feel inclined to controvert it.
It la now published that Hancock
offered to take orders from Tildeu in
1876. This is one goad point with him
anyway aa far aa bis backers are con
cerned. The artillery of heaven ia playing
on Georgia. The state is doomed.
Verily the mills grind slowly, but
nothing gets between the Btones that
is not mashed.
The democrats are claiming that
thousands of republicans are flockiDg
to Hancock's standard all over the
country. It is singular that none of
them are to be found In this section.
The democrats choose hangman's
day for their convention. There's a
peculiar fitness in that. The secend
congressional district of Tennessee is
worse than a hangman for a demo
crat. Somebody wants to know what has
become of the Garfield and Arthur
club. In answer, we will state that it
is in the liveliest condition and will
be heard from when its opponents
least desire it.
Our newspaper friend at Chatta
nooga thinks $4,500,000 is much too
high a sum to pay for a dead Indian,
but says Grant was no better. No,
Grant never was much of a general,
anyway, nor ever won a victory.
Jno. C. New says Indiana will go
republican. His idea about it is worth
as much as any man in it.
The Hoosier republicans are going
into the campaign with their coats ctf
and will pull through.
The Regulator thinks we were
wrong about the New York figures.
Well, we may have underestimated
Garfield's vote, and since we desire
notbiug except to please, we will in
crease our estimate a little say to
Indiana in presidential elections is
close. Landers, the democratic nomi
nee for governor, i3 the most blatant
demagogue in the Whole state. Eug
lieh is very unpopular and the su
preme court has just decided againtt
the constitu iooal amendments.
Some of the most ibflaential Cath-
cl cs north will not vote for Hancock
became he denied to Mrs. Surralt the
last offices of her religion. They de
Clare that their religion is dearer to
them than their politics and swear by
all the saints that be will get no vote
Mrs. Hancock is a Catholic as we
are informed by the most reliable of
authorities. She united with that
church about two years ago, just after
the death of her daughter, to whom
fihe was most devotedly attached. We
give this as an item of news and not
because we attach to it any potency to
itjura the general.
It may not;be of much importance,
but English subscribed $1 to the
Chicago sufferers and not $100,000, as
the Tribune had it. If our young
friend attempts to make out a character
of generosity for English he will be
much in the same position that the
West Tennessee crazy man aa when
he attempted to put the Mississippi
river in a pint bottle.
Two districts in Tennessee will go
republican this year beyond a shadow
of doubt, and if the national cougres-
fiioual committee will do the werk in
the Memphis district that they should,
ii coma be carried. The democratic
majority ia very small and the repub
licans have carried it. With the de
moralization on state affairs and the
peculiarly mixed condition of Mem
phis politics, we ought to elect a rep
resentative from there.
It is now pretty well settled that
both the funders and readjustee,
In Virginia, will put up a Han
cock and English electoral
ticket, different only in the elec
tors. One thing that may be expected
in that state, however, is a gain of two
congreeBmen. Senator Withers will
be a candidate In the ninth. In the
Lynchburg district there ia a strong
contest goiDg on over the nomination
between Daniels and Tucker, with

The sermon was preached by Bishop

were almost stupefied by
the procedure employed. In
Paris where the individual is drowned
in the mass the thing is less serious,
but in the provinces it will have
far deeper effect. France will be
divided into twocamps, separated by
an unfathomable abyss. Those only
who Lave livvJ in the provinces can
form an idea of the effect of these
oppressive measures. , The 'govern
ment ought , not to proceed
further in ; thi3 direction.
The country must not come to look
upon the. republic as synonymous
with persecution, because, "at pres
ent, the republic has no opposition
to fear. . It ought to be tolerant, for
it can be so without danger. The
government,' supported by the na
tion and victorious over all advert
saries, commits the greatest blander
by violating personal liberty under
the pretext of protecting itself
when in no danger.
It is expected that the Jesuit3 will
immediately apply to the judges,
complaining of the violation of their
rights of property and domicile,
and praying for an order of reins
statement in the pending trial of the
case. The government will con-
tend that the ordinary tribunals
have no jurisdiction in such
disputes between individuals and the
state, and that the council of state
can alone determine the validity of
expulsion. The government, hows
ever, is in manifest difficulty with
other unrecognized orders, as it
never calculated on their refusing
to apply for recognition,
and now that they have firmly re
solved on linking their fate with the
Jesuits, the government must either
shut its eyes to a violation of the
decrees, or report on a much larger
scale (Wednesday's) proceedings.

Meeting of the National Com

a Chairman Plans ol"
the Republican State
(New York Tribune.)
The republican national commit
tee will meet at the Fifth Avenue
Hotel in this city oa Thursday.
The first duty of the committee will
be to elect u chairman and a secre
tary. Marshall .ewell is now tem
porary chairman of the committee.
Several of the nembers are ex
pected here tojdar, when there may
be some indicatioi as to the proba
ble choice for charm an.
The leaders of the New York
state republican committee favor
leasing a house somewhere in the
vicinity of the Fifti Avenue Hotel
for the use of the rational and state
committees jointly. Usually both
committees have Sad headquarters
in the Fifth Avente Hotel, but it is
stated that sufficient room can not
be obtained there this year.
The executive committee of the
republican state committee will
probably meet in this city on July
15th, and begin active campaign
work. The state committee itself
will probably not be called together
before September 1st. There will
then be submitted to it the question
of whether or not a state conven
tion shall be held for the nomina
tion of a successor for Sanford E.
Church, as chief judge of the court
of appeals. Some of the members
of the state committee think the
holding of a state convention for
this purpose unnecessary. The
expense of holding a state convena
tion is estimated to be 830,000. If
such an expenditure can be avoided
they think it would be wise to do
so. They suggest that the leaders of
the republican county organiza

sulted as to the propriety of having

tee has the machinery of the cams
pain already perfected. It is in
such excellent order that, as ex
pressed yesterday by one of the
members of the, state committee,
tof clays" aTter 'it is set ia motton."
The same gentleman said that the
democrats totally lacked organiza
tion for the purposes of a campaign,
and that it 'would take the demo.i
cratic state committee "twenty days
to get a going." It is stated that
General Arthur is yet undecided
whether or not he will retain the
chairmanship of the republican state
committee. His friends urge him
not to resign the position, saying
that his experience in the position
of chairman would be invaluable to
the party the present year.
Its Waters and Cariosities.
Mr. Editor: If Eait Tennessee had no
other advantages, its watering places alone
would be sufficient to give it prominence
in the whole country. There is one re
sort so 1 ttle known, but deserving of more
than a passing notice, that I trust you will
give your readers the benefit of this brief
description of Oliver Springs. Oliver
Springs are situated on the foot of Cum
barland mountains, or more properly
speaking, Walden'a ridge, at a place
known as "Winters' gap. They aro located
in Anderson county, but within pistol shot
of Roane and Morgan counties. A very
pretty village has been built, and there are
two stores doing a thriving business; in
closa proximity are the celebrated Oliver
and Kos3 coal banks, containing the finest
coal for grate and manufacturing purposes,
and only waiting for railroad facilities to
take first rank in claiming favor at the
hands of consumers.
Still nearer ia the famous salt well, and
within a short dhtince and located upon
the lands of our townsman, lieo. W. lioss,
is one of nature 8 curiosities, a gas spring.
Bubblmg up through the limpid waters ot
a small mountain stream, a steady now ot
ga3 escapes into the air. An ordinary lard
can. to which is attached a gas burner, is
ready to band, and when tilted over the
spring one neeas put apply a nurnmg
match and nature s own gas worKs are
lighted, burning with a steady, bright
light. All around the place one has but to
punch a hole in the ground with a walking
stick and as many meterless gas jets are
ready for the match. The writer ha9 never
heard ot any aispuiea meier accounts in
that region of the country, and investiga
ting gas committees would be there consid
ered a cutiosity as great as tne wondertui
gas spring itself.
Anotner one oi me wonaers ci inai ia
mous resort is the blue spring a sjriDg
without a bottom, at least so far as could
be ascertained by the simple contrivances
used bv the natives there. It covers a con
siderabie space, and looking into its blue
watPTS. one can see the tops of large forest
trees, apparently within reach, but really

Winter's Gap, and frequent showers are
the result of chasing clouds breaking
nfrainst the broad mountain sides.

square are five different waters, the white
