FOR. MAYORi
JOHN JOHNSON.
Makt persons who tnke tbe Public
Ledger complain of the late hour at
which it reaches them. We regret this
hut find it difficult to find a remedy
We endeavor to get to press at two
o'clock, but the late arrival of our diB
patches renders that impracticable. At
all events we will do the best we can, as
suring our readers that the later the pa'
per the more interesting it will be.
SNOWED UPON IT.
Thanksgiving da; and snow came to
gether. As the Government at Wash
ington has taken the weather in charge
and manages zero generally, may it not
have forecast the day the snow would
fall, and popped Thanksgiving down on
it? Or may not the elements have
snowed upon so hollow a mockery as
Thanksgiving in this latitude for. what
the Government had done for the peo
ple? Perhaps the refugees of Carolina
slept in the snow on Wedneeday night,
and bad upon their uncovered heads yes
terday the storm, while the bugles of
their - pursuers sounded in their ears.
The " beautiful snow" is a good thing to
look npon, but too much of it is not
wholesome. Our poor outcasts from
their families cannot help but think of
the happy days who J tbe laugh and the
frolic went round and the sleigh bells
ran g so sweetly. Poor fellows! Those
pleasant days with them are over. Tbe
wrath of a merciless government is pur
suing them.
THE EADICAL WAY.
An exchange says a " Union Soldier "
writes from South Carolina to bis nncle
in New York that " a seedy wreteh, who
five years ago bad not garments to pro
tect bim in a cooler climate, is now the
State Treasurer, and stole flOO.OOO in
one season from the fund to buy lands
for tbe landless." It is not surprising to
Cnd that this " wretch" is now the owner
of eighteen thousand acres of tillable
land. In discussing the financial affairs
of South Carolina, the New York Na
tion (Radical) says this State Treasurer
(Niles G. Parker) kept a bar in Haver
hill, Mass., before tbe war. He entered
the army, settled as a carpet-bagger in
, Charleston, opened another grocery,
" went into politics," was made an Al
derman, cultivated tbe negro, failed in
business, paid thirty cents on the dollar,
rose rapidly in politics, became State
Treasurer, and is now reputed to be
worth a million, and has plenty of dia
monds. Put behind such men the most
corrupt and ignorant Legislature that
ever caricatured free government in a
civilized State, and we se. wby tbe
finances of the State are in so embar
rassed as condition as recent develop
ments show.
THE STOKES CASE.
It is wrong for the newspapers, that
every one reads, to prejudge a case that
is pending in a court of justice. But it is
quite clear from the dispatches concern
ing the arraignment of Stokes for fraud
on the Government, that he will have no
easy road to travel. ..The evidence is
strong, if not conclusive. If it be
proved that he did things that the law
prohibits; if it be proved that he de
frauded the Government to the amount
of sixty thousand dollars, why should be
not be convicted like any other criminal?
And this is tbe man who did not think
that men who love their native land
should vote nor hold office, because
they bad been engaged in a great war,
or sympathized with its cause. This
pattern of loyalty, this plumed bird of
the mountains, may come out through a
whitewashing machine, but people will
always think that such a man was the
last one who should have been prescrip
tive.
BLOODY CTJBA.
It is a serious offense in Havana to de
molish a grate. Some time since some
students, mere youths, demolished the
grave of Gonzalo Caatanon. They were
arrested, tried by court-martial and con
demned. Eight of Ibem were recently
shot, but tbe majority were sentenced to
imprisonment This Cuban government
is a bloody spot in the civilization of the
age. It is a nuisance among nations.
and should be abolished. K w. bad a
government that could elevate its mind
above a gift, or a sore-tailed colt, tbe
thing would be done. The slaughter of
tbe human race goes on rapidly enough
among themselves. But when govern
merits, f M trivial offenses, commence the
work it is time to look for a remedy.
Cuba, as now governed, is of no earthly
nse to the world. Humanity cries out
against it when it murders school boys
fnr foolish cranks. But what does
this government care?
WAR WITH BPAIW.
Tbe last sensation is a probable war
between the L'nited States and Spain
Americans have been shamefully treated
in Cuba. They have been kicked through
the streets by tbe volunteers, and other
wise maltreated; they bare been driven
out of Havana. It was telegraphed the
other day. that the Americans there
needed the immediate protection of the
American Government. And so a fleet
of American war steamers is bearing
down on Havana to demand reparation.
PsasoNswho have bad any connec
tion with the fraudoieot issue of rail
road bonds are to b punished if a bill
introduced in the House on Wednesday
Tbe latest sensation is war with
Spain. The result will not be uncertain.
But what effect will it have ou tbe
Cuban rebellion? We imagine that a
new swarm of carpet-baggers are stuffing
their bags for a trip to Cuba, in antici
pation of its conquest, and tbe good
stealing to be got there.
The Great Ben Hill, of Georgia, an
nounces that Hector is dead. - That is
true. When a boy we folbwed bim in
his chase of raccoons, opossums, etc.
But now he is no more. We saw him
quietly laid to rest at the foot of the
Red mountain, in Jefferson county, Ala.
Prosskh is to be acquitted, on the
groidfcl that bis offense was committed
four days after the expiration ot ws
term as a member of Congress. Let not
the guiltless suffer, but go strong for the
guilty. Four days, eh?

WASHINGTON'.
Washijtotox, December 1. Affairs in
LCuba have been discussed in political
circles, and one hears on every sid. a
sentiment of horror expressed at the
outrageous barbarity of the volunteers
in demanding tbe execution of the med
ical students. The general convictioa
is expressed that tbe United States Gov
ernment ought at least to make a strong
protest.
Some very severe criticisms are passed
upon the present condition of our navy.
It is asserted that we cannot be said to
have at our disposal now anything more
than a fleet fit for coast duty.
Senators and members of tbe House
e arriving and a quorum of both
houses will probably be here on Satur
day. Speaker Blaine is expected Sat
urday, but whether he will announce
the committees before the second week
in the session is not known.
Nearly all tbe reports of heads of de
partments and chiefs of bureaus are
completed. The President's message is
finished, and will be read at the cabinet
meeting to morrow. Reports be
sent to the President as heretofore, in
advance of their delivery to Congress,
but are not to be published until that
time. Tbe President's message being
in manuscript, will be telegraphed. The
President and heads of departments
give no intimation whatever of its con
tents. There was considerable excitement
here yesterday which grew out of a re
port that the Terror, on arriving at Ha
vana, had been forbidden to pass Moro
Castle and bad resented the insult by
firing on the fortress. It is well known
that a large number 'of Spanish war ves
sels, among them the corvette built in
American yards, are constantly in the
harbor at Havana, and the entrance
itself is exceedingly narrow and strongly
defended.
HEVT YORK.
New Yore, December 1. The Grand
Duke and suite attended Thanksgiving
service at the Greek Church yesterday.
All present remained standing through
out the entire services. He visits West
Point to-day, where he will be formally
received by the military officers of the
post and cadets. He will, as asual, be
accompanied by tbe Citizens' Reception
Committee and also by a few invited
guests.
Numerous French Radical Republi
cans in this city have issued a call for a
mass meeting for tbe purpose of protest
ing against the execution of General
Rossel, Communist, by their Govern
ment. Mr. Charles O'Connor, who was ap
plied to by the citizens of York county,
3. C, to defend persons now in prison
in that county under the Ku-Klux law,
has declined to act as counsel in their
defense.
Ex-Controller Connolly has beea al
lowed the use of Warden Tracer's
apartments in the Ludlow street jail,
and has been visited by numerous friends
since his incarceration.
General Arthur took possession of the
Collector's office, and Murphy retired
without ceremony. The new Collector
re-appointed all the deputies.
LOIISYILLE.
Locisvillk, December 1. Thomas W.
Lindecam, distributing clerk at toe post
office here was arrested by a detective
this morning while in the act of staliug
letters from tbe mail, and eleven letters
from various ports were found on his
person. For some time it has been
known to tbe postoflic authorities that
stealing from tbe mails was going on at
this office, several letters of value having
been asissed, Detectives were placed at
work with the above result.
SEW ORLEANS.
New Orlcans, December I. The
steamboat Great Republic arrived yes

Checney drew a revolver and fired pro
miscuously among the orowd, killing one
man and wounding two others. One of
the wounded is not expected to recover,
but the Oilier received only a slight flesh
wound. ' Cheeney, after the shooting,
surrendered himself to the Captain, who,
on arriving at this port, gave bim in
charge of the police. The origin of the
difficulty was in regard to some remarks
made by Cheeney about a stolen coat.
CONNECTICUT. . , i
" Greenwich, December 1. The Ameri
can Club House at Indian Point has
been seized by tbe deputy sheriff 'under
an execution procured by Fitch, the
builder, of Norwalk. It is supposed
the movement is simply to protect the
property from seizure in New York, by
suits against the ring.
' FOREIUX. '
London, December 1. The Prince of
Wales passed rather a restless and nn.
easy night, the fever being slightly in.
creased. The Medical Bulletin, issued
from Handring HouBe this morning, an
nounces his condition less favorable than
yesterday,' and apprehends immediate
danger from the change.
The Earl of Chesterfield died yester
day from typhus fever after short ill
ness. -
Brussels, November SO. The open
ing of a new boulevard in this city to
day was made the occasion of a renewal
of the disturbances of the past week.
The people, who had assembled to the
number, of several thousand, displayed
great hostility toward several Govern
ment oflicials who war. present, and
who had made themselves obnoxious to
the populace by their action in regard
to ministerial troubles. . A detachment
of the civie guard was ordered to dis
perse the crowd, but the soldiers refused
to proceed against the people, and open
ly fraternized .with the citizens, con.
siderable excitement still prevails in the
city. '
Vienna. November 30. Count An-
drossy, the newly selected Premier, has
issued a circular defining tbe policy to
ti nnraned bv the new ministry. The
peaceful policy of his predecessor, Von
Banst. Count ' Androssy says, will be
closely followed.
Marseilles, November 30. Mr. Cra-
mieux, convicted of being a leader in
the late Communist agitation, was exe
cuted this morning. The condemned
man conducted himself firmly, and met
his fate with apparent resignation.
Of "Professors," one of our ex
changes, the Goodman Star, says with
truth, that perhaps there is no word in
our langnage more shamefully abused
in its application to men than the word
"professor." It is applied indiscrimi
nately to every strolling showman, to
every peripatetic vendor of patent med
icines, to every perambulatiug curer of
corns and bunions, to every honored
head of a literary institution and the
manager-in-chief of every scientific or
ganization, tivery teecner oi a nine
school, who rules witn a Dircnen rou,
the destinies of some fifteen or twenty
dirty-faced children, is now dubbed a
professor, ana tne result is, me rain
swarms with them.
Our neighbor of Jefferson street comes
to the front this morning to apologize
for the Cincinnati capitalists who, are
making preparations to saddle en this
community w water monopoly, -coupled
with the further purpose of destroying
the present gas company, and setting
op in its stead an institution possessing
all tbe odious features we were so lamil-
iar with in the halcyon days of Thomp
son Dean and his man Fitch. Our posi
tion is plain and simple: We are for
protecting Memphis capital and Mem
phis people against Cincinnati extortion
Tbe works of the present company are
ample and sufficient to supply the city;
the quality of the gas is superior to that
any other company can introduce; hence
there is no more necessity for other gas
works than Mrs. Toodles had for a sec
ond-hand door plate. Now, if Mrs,
Toodles' investment was a good one, so
also will be a useless gas works. The
Cincinnati canital will ! be of the
same character as that .invested by
the same parties in shot and shell, to be
fired into this city. Both ar. devices
wherewith to extort money. The one
kind of iron enabled our enemies to pos
sess our towns and cities, subvert our in
stitutions, and quarter npon os herds of
hungry vermin to eat op our substance;
the other will compass the same end.
Instead of carpet-bag rulers in public
places we will have them in private cor
porations; in any event our tribute mnst
be forthcoming. Our neighbor asserts
that the Cincinnati company is in the
bands of Memphis people; we challenge
the assertion, and ask in all candor and
fairness that he print the stock list of
that company, and let us see whether he
or we be right If there be a sufficient
amount of bona JiJe Memphis capital
aot mere names in the institution to
control it, and it caa be so shows to
as, we will withdraw our objections.
Frankly, we do not believe any such
thing exists; otherwise, why has a delay
of nearly two years occurred since the
injunction was dissolved allowing Don
ovan to Proceed? Because there was no
local capital to be had fcr the adventure,
and one Cincinnati shark would not in-tM-fen
with another. But as soon as
Dean vacates his place in tbe old rao-
nootr. then, as a matter of course, the
game is proper and right, and down
swoops the Northern hawk to his prey. An
objection to having forced npon ns use
less gas mains and works, for which we
will have to pay. and which will call for
mthdraral cf Memphit cajrilal, can-
not be warped into an objection to the
invitation of legitimate capital from
abroad, whether that capital be iq money
or muscle but, if yon please, we want
no spare gas pipes, second-hand coffins
or door plates. -
Ml. Aadrew'a Kalrty.
The sons of old Scotia held their an
neal meeting at Cochran Hall last eve
ning. The officers elect were installed
as follows by Mr. David M. .Philp. mas
ter of ceremonies: President, Mr. Gil
bert McLean; first Vice President, Col.
G. W. Alexander; second Vice Presi
dent, David P. Goldsmith; Physician,
Dr. Allen Stirling
Treasurer, Duncan
McLean; Secretary, John B. Campbell;
Librarian, A. H. Brown; Board of Mar-
urn. H. Lemon. H. T. Tomlinson. Alex-
lander Tocher, W. W. riiohnLZ&t
C. Farias. Immediately after th inter-
society and invited guests repaired to
the banquet hall. The good things terres
tial were eaten, the time-honored " hot
Scotch" was drunk and speeches were
made in response to the regular toasts,
as follows: "The tay We Celebrate,!'
Mr. David M, Philp; " The Queen," CM.
A. H. Douglass; " The President of the
United States," Judge M. L. Perkins;
" The Laud We Left and the Land We
Live In," Mr. Duncan'MoLean'"The;
Poets, Heroes and Statesmen of Scot
land," Mr.LvB, McFarland; "The Me
chanic's' of Memphis,"' Mr. Marshall';
" Our SUle SocIetlesoTrAlexandcr;
" The Press," Capt. J. Harvey Matbes;
" The Ladies,'1' Mr. W. Young. The
banquet closed at a late hour, and the
guests retired, overcome by the pleasing
recollections of the feast
AmaaesneaUs.
Memphis Theater. The Royal Sat
sums Japanese Troupe attracts large
audiences to the theater'every evening.
The performance given by these chil
dren from the land of the Tycoon and
Dnimios Is of a most interesting and en
tertaining character. The girls,pf Yeddo,
whom Train deoribes so - graphically,
perform each evening on the swinging
bamboo poles and wire rope, the latter
performance being wonderful, the walker
traversing, whirling and lying down on
wire rope and using an umbrella as a
balance-pole. The legerdemain tricks
are novelties in this clime, while the
bamboo, ladder, top-whirling and top
spinning tricks are superior to anything
exhibited by any other troupe. The
everlasting fun is nsed on all occasions
and under all circumstances by these
descendants of tbe Mongol Tartars. The
"Japs" will give a grand entertainment
this evening, a matinee to-morrow, and
will close their engagement in this city
to-morrow night. '
The Mom-TON Concerts. The East
ern musical critics became enraptured
with this charming cantatrice, who will
sing at the Memphis Theater on next
Monday and Tuesday nights. Her recent
concert at Steinway Hall, New York, is
described by a Sun reporter aB follows
The entrance of Mrs. Charles Moulton
upon the professional life of a vooalist,
from a social point of view, was an event
of sufficiently sienal importance to
Krinff trio-ether at Steinwav Hall on Mon
day evening a great number of those
who make op the most cultivated and
rf fined class of society in this city. It
was such an audience ai gathers only on
rare occasions, called together by some
name held in special honor and esteem.
No amateur in private life, whether in
thia -itv nr ahroad. has received, it is
safe to say, such homage as has Mrs.
Moulton. ' Until now she has never
brought herself within the rightful sphere
of criticism, and has, of course, received
fmm anpietv nnthini? but Praise. And
that this has been deserved no one who
heard her on Monday evening can doubt
A more rharniine drawing-room singer
the most captious listener could not de
sire to hear. Neither is there anything
left to be desired in the matter of vocal
ization. Ascending and descending the
scales' were never song with a more deli
cate ease and finish than by her. The
true Italian method and the Italian
voice, as well, are there. Indeed, she p
a most rare singer, and, within her lim
its, well nigh perfect
Broom's. The manager of the Jeffer
son street Opera House manages to fill
his house nightly by presenting a fine
programme for the amusement of his
guests. '. Tbe performance to-night will
consist of comic and sentimental songs,
clog dances, lightning vocal changes,
gems from the ballet and sensational
dramas, never presented before in this
city. '
Miaa. Lucy Adams, character and
change vocalist, has left Memphis to
fulfill an engagement in New Orleans.
Miss Adams is very attractive, and in
her lightning character changes 'she
gives a pure, graceful and piquant per
formance, and on that account, wherever
she appears, is entitled to large attend
ance and warm appreciation. Miss
Adams has the good fortune to possess
an elegant ptrtonel and costumes splen
didly. If we understand the lady's am
bition aright it will cause her to emulate
tbe success obtained by many of the
most celebrated burlesque actresses.
Olympic Varieties. The old Wash
ington street theater, with Its brilliant
calcium 'light, flourishes under the pop
ular Manager Lusk, who knows so well
how to cater to the public taste. The
programme for this evening is filled with
rare attractions which will not fail to
secure a full house. Everybody is in
vited to attend the Olympic this evening.
A new version of the Can-Can will be
presented. '
