The twenty-fourth convention of
the Young Men's Christian associa
tions oi the United States and British
provinces will be held in Cleveland,
Ohio, May 25th to 29th. Arrange
ments will be made for reductions of
railroad and steamboat fare'?, and a
large attendance is expected.
Under arrangements entered into
and under way there is a strong prob
ability that the Memphis and Holly
Springs railroad will be built and run
ning to our sister city at no very dis
tant day. It is in the hands of live,
energetie business men, who know the
value of the road and how to push the
enterprise through to a successful
completion. The road would be of
incalculable benefit to Memphis, se
curing a rich trade naturally belong

in other directions.
The McMinnville New Era, re

Our reading does not foot up that

the state are to be credited. The
truth is, there is more dissatisfaction
now than when the bill first passed;
and its passage has creited more out

things combined. In our own county
we have personal knowledge of four
prominent 50 4 and John V. Wright

Xew York. April 29. The al

fied us that the 1st of May is only just
I around the corner. It is a day ditlor-

day when the landlords' annual strike
goes into effect They strike for mote
reut, and as there is but limited room
on the metropolitan raft, they general
ly succeed in getting it. It is a way
they have of encouraging the tenants
to become active and enterprising. In
the feudal times the landlord was
always the gentleman distinguished
for having tho best horso and the
thickest pair of steel breeches. If one
of his tenants had a better horse he
never succeeded in holding it over
May day. The village boss did pretty
much as he, pleased. When short of
cash he remembered that Sir Scrabble
stone, his neighbor, had on some for
mer occasion called him names. He
summoned his vassals, and ordered
them to put on their iron pots and
pick up their very offensive weapons.
If he was as condescending as Conk
ling, perhaps he addressed to them a
short snceeh something like this:
"Boys, I am going after Scrab, who
has been taking gold from the French.
I shall kick the life out of him, and
plunder his castle. After the victory,
you can eat anything there is about
the premises, and get drunk at the
traitor's expense. But if you secrete
any of tho plunder, look out. My

THERE ARE NOT HOTELS ENOUGH.
The man bent on domestic revolu
tion calls on a landlord ot a hotel, who
has, perhaps, just received a call from
his landlord, and is consequently com
pelled to make an advance in his
prices. He wants $6 a day for a bed
room and board, which is about three
times what was charged in the middle
of the war, when the dollar was worth
only 40 cents. Hotels then charged
$5 same as $2 in gold. Now they
charge $6 in gold. Let any man take
a piece of chalk, stand up before a
blackboard and figure up if he can the
value of a dollar at the present day,
measured by its equivalents in the
necessaries and luxuries of life and by
the amount of labor required to obtain
it. Carpenters who strike for $3 60 a
day and get it are not nearly so well
off as they were with $2 a day twenty
five years ago. And as for the men
who receive $1 25 a day compared with
those of a quarter of a century ago,
the miserable poverty of their condi
tion is incalculable. But this poverty
is inevitable it is mathematically so.
Take the valuation of property in the
city at $1,200,000,000 in round num
bers; population, 1,200,000. .This
would average $1000 to every man,
woman and child. Now, there are
six people who own $300,000,000 out of
the $1,200 000,000. This alone reduces
the average to $750. Now, figure up
the comparatively limited number of
property owners, and it will appear
that there isn't a penny to divide
among many thousands of people.
And so the man who earns his i 1 25 a
day ought to console himself with the
reflection that he is a necessary and
inevitable result, and that if he rises
above his position he will be obliged
to shove somebody else into the va
cancy. There are a good many people in
Washington and in some other cities
who thiTik it is a pity that New York

Oops In the Month and West.
Cincinnati Commercial, 16.J
The reports ot the condition of the
growing crops in the south and west
are ot a more encouraging character
than could have been anticipated a
month ago. Cotton promises well ev
erywhere in the south. With contin
ued good weather the yield will be up
to tbe average of the best years. Win
ter wheat, too, is found to be less dam
aged by the severe winter than was
supposed, and the wet, warm weather
of the past week has brought it for
ward amazingly. The corn in south
ern latitudes is up, and stands well ;
it is of good color, and luxuriant in
growth. We are now beyond the pe
riod when severe frosts are to be antic
ipated. Still, such extraordinary late
freezing as that of 1864 may happen
again; but it we escape them there
will be abundance ot iruit. notwith
standing the outcry of winter ki'ling.
1 here will be abundance ot cherries,
peaches, pears, apples and small fruit,
raspberries and blackberries possibly
excepted. We do not, indeed, despair
of them ; but in any event the year is
likely to be crowned by as abundant
a harvest as has awarded industry in
any year past.

France now possesses, by treaty
with the bey of Tunis, the right to
occupy the regency with troops in such
a way as may seem proper te the
French government, the right to be
consulted before the bey makes addi
tional treaties with any foreign pow
crs, the right to a supervision ot the
bey's financial system, and other
rights too nuufcrous to mention, in
cluding the right to protect this poten
tate in his person, state and dynasty.
This is a reasonably complete result
of the little operation for the punish
ment ot the Kroumirs. It the various
parts of the proceeding are lacking in
anything it is not vigor, for the

country and a treaty. It is distress
ing to note how England is horrified
at what France has done. The Lon
don Times says that this helping one's
self to other people's countries is
"contrary to ordinary rules of moral

sincerely hopes that this may not lead

About two weeks ago, I received
the first number of a now funder pa
per, dated April 15,publ shed at Cul
ttcper, and called Th Exponent."
Its editor is Angus McD. Green, son
and law partnor of Maj. J. W. Green,
a prominent Virginia lawyer and at
torney of the V irginia Midland rail
road, trom Alexandria.via Lynchburg,
to Danvillo, eto.
I quote first from the editor's intro
ductory "to the public." He savs:
"We believe thatthestate debtshould
be speedily settled, lhe peonle are-
weary of its discussion and we propoie
to show how it can be done to the sat
isfaction of all the creditors and with
out laying additional burdens upon
the people. We hold that the fund
ing bill of 1871 was unconstitutional;
that, had it been constitutional, the
succeeding legislature had the power,
wnicn it exercised to repeat it, ana
that the decision of the court of ap
peals in Antoni vs. Wright was wrong;
that the preservation of the public
faith belongs tu the legislative and not
the judicial department of the govern
ment," etc. The birth of the Exponent
was preoeeded by a meeting of promi
nent citizens ( tunders) at the law office
of J. W. and A. M. Green on Febru
ary 17th, 1881, who formed a "low tax
association," tbe proceedings of which
meeting are given in full in the hxpo
nent. I leave all comment to vour
readers, except to say that it shews
the funders are ready with another

1 now quote from tbe editorial lead
er, neadca uenerai Mahone, and
full of hostility to him, but adopting
his principles, at last, on which he
made and won the fight in Virginia.
Says this editorial : "There is no
power equal to the traditional faith of
a people, whether religious or politi
cal. The traditional political faith of
Virginia is that ot Jefferson and the
old democratic party. The
court of appeals, in Antoni vs. Wright,
decided, in substance, that a state
could be coerced by judicial process,
and that it belonged to the judicial
department ot the government to com
pel the observance ot the public faith
whenever the legislature tailed to do
its duty. This was -contrary to this
traditional faith. Gen. Mahone and the
readjusters were indebted for their
strength to the attack which they
make upon the correctness of this de
cision.' This is true democracy, it
is old democracy, and the reason given
for the strength of the readjusters is
a true one.
Further on in the leader is tbis:
The democratic nartv of Vireinia
made a great mistalce in yielding so
far to the old federalists whigs? as to
abandou its name, and take that of

the lines for battle this fall, let it re
