Next to Morristown in oar affec

borne and some " of oar most pleas

it was an insiguificant place as com
pared with its present enlarged area
and its commercial importance
when it numbered only about three
or four thousand aouls, and when it
seemed to have no future except
that of a email interior town, iso
latd, fcbut up between two great
mountains and doomed, apparently
to a somewhat unknown town, rest
ing quietly upon the banks of -the
Ilolstou river.

T it not more so? We can we'l
remember when there was scarcely
a building north of Clinch street.
This was the ease as late as 1S(5.
Oneold shanty stood between Clinch
and Union. Beyond that towards
the del Kt was a blank on both sides
of Gay street. The old Curry
property, now occupied by the Kast
Tennessee National Band, stood
alone in its so'itary'loneliness.
How is it now? What n 6uperb
panorama presents itself ! Building

block is about closed up, or will be
in a few days. Only one lot re
mains and that, no doubt, will soon
be filled up. When that is accom
plished Gay btreet will be holid
from one end of it to the other.
The southern end of Gay streetj
in consequence of tho removal of
the principal business houses tow
ards the depot, was greatly damaged
thereby. I he first to make the
move was the well known house of
Cowan, Dickinson & Co. This was
the signal for a general move in the
direction indicated, and it was not
long till every house of any note
followed suit. A. Barton, a suc
cessful dry goods merchant, was the
last ' to pull up stakes." The old
confectionery establishment of Ber
ry & McDaniel stented it out and
eontiuued to battle with fate until
quite recently, when it succumbed
to the inevitable. We learn, how
ever, that that portion of the street
is beginning to show signs of re- j
turning viuiuiy. ot a lew per
sons predict that it will 3-et become
as robust ami active as it was in its
palmier days. The old Cowan
Dickinson corner, one of the historic
lecalities of tho citv and whose ca
reer was marked with almost unex
ampled prosperity, has recently
been purchased by S. T. Atkin at a
cost of $11,000.
One of tho striking evidences of
knoxville's prosperity is its com
mercial advancement, Its jobbing
houses aro not only numerous but
wealthy and prosecuting an im
mense trade. A decade ago they
could have been counted on two or
three fingers. Now they are num
oereu oy tiie dozen, it is surpris
ing how they have multiplied and
still more surprising how they have
permeated such vast sections of the
country. Nor can any other city
of tho south or of the nation boast
of a more honorable and scrupulous
ly just class of merchants.
There is a proud future awaiting
tins beautiful city of the mountains.
It is destined to take high rank and
to command tho admiration of all at
all familiar with its social, educa
tional, commercial and moral ad
vantages and attainments. Its pop
ulation is increasin": at the rate of
tuoro thau '1,000 per annum and
more than 300 houses were erected
last year. - ;
One thing it is deficient in ita
lack of manufactories. These ar
few and far between. All i lacks
to crown it as ono of the foremost
cities of the .South is the up build
ing of woolen and cotton mills, of
blast furnaces, foundries and rolling
mills. This, more than anything
else, would swell it into importance.
Contiguous as it is to the finest coaI
and iron belts of the continent, it
has every inducement to turn its
attention in this direction, whilo its
prosperity would bo absolutejy as
sured. " ''

Mx. Jtutbcrford B. Hayes
of Ohio we have received a com
munication soliciting us to join a
society of which he says he U the
President. The name of the society
which Mx. R- B. Hays claims to
represent as its chief executive offi
cer is the "National Prison Associa
tion." Its object seems to be to dis
cuss the proper treatment of crimin
als, both in and out of prison, and
to ' bring about feasible reforms
now neeetisary to bettor protection
from crimes."
The proper treatment of crimin
als in and out of prison is a subject
of the first importance. Better pro
tection against crime is something
in which every honest citizen is di
rectly interested. It costs only five
dollars a year to belong to the asso
ciation. Notwithstanding these
facts, we must politely but peremp
torily decline tho invitation which
Ir. Hayes has seen fit to address
to us. ,'
In the first place, we have noevi
dence that Mr. 11. B. Hayes is in fact
President of the National Prison As
sociation, and therefore authorized
to ask us to join. It is true that he
signs himself as President, but in
his case that signifies nothing. For
four 3'ears he was in tho habit of
signing hime'f as Pi evident of the
United States, an ollic-o to which
he was never elected. It he did not
scruple to lie then, he would hardly
hesitate now, in a matter of minor
imjortance. We should prefer to
scrutinize the returns before taking
it for granted that 3Ir. 11. B. Hayes
of Ohio has right ortitlo to call him
self President of the National Prison
Association, and to invite us to join.
How do we know that he has not
had himself counted in, andtbatour
five dollars a year are not wanted
to support his frauduleut to a stolen
In the second place, even if the
fact that Mr. Mayes of Ohio was in
this instance honestly elected should
bo established to our satisfaction, we
should nevertheless decline tho in
vitation with promptitude. We
have the greatest contempt for the
character of Mr. Ii. B.Hayes a con
tempt so great, indeed, that it is im
possible to measure it with words
and at the same time preserve the
outward forms of politeness. We
have no desire to associate with
him intimately or remotely, even in
the discussion of the proper treat
ment of criminals. In associating
ourselves with him in any way we
should consider that wo were doing
a permanent injury to our self-re-
That is why Mr. Hayes's in
vitation is declined, without thanks

Louisville Courier-Journal,
its issue of Wednes-
the building up of new -industries,
because of the increased tonn
thereby. On the other hand, the
railroads and the farmers have been
mre benefitted by the industries
that have grown up in the South in
tho recent years, than by any other
known cause. .i
, The
discussinsr in
day the relation of the South to the
tariff, affects to believe that the
South is not sufficiently interested
in mining and manufacturing to
prompt it to maintain the tariff. It
undertakes to show that agriculture
is now and will hereafter be of more
importance in the South than min
ing and manufacturing combined.
Nobody in the South has ever un
derestimated the importance of ag
riculture, but neither has it been
contended by any in the South that
mining and manufacturing are of
secondary importance. It is well
known in the South that agricul
tural development has been mate
rially stimulated by the growth of
its manufacturing industries, cre
ating a home market. No country
can thrive which depends alone
upon agriculture, but agriculture
and manufactures are mutually de
pendent one upon the other.
Our agricultural development in
the South, the Courier-Journal main-,
tains, has been due to the adoption
of new methods of husbandry, inci
dent to the change of the labor
system ; the introduction of North
ern settlers, of Northern agricul
tural methods ; the increase of labor
saving implements and the diversi
fication of crops. , Undoubtedly
these were factors, but the greatest
incentive, at last, was the increased
market and the encouraging stimu
lus of better prices. Wo have evi
dences of this everywhere in Ten
nessee where a blast furnace has
been erected or a mine opened or a
factory constructed. Every cotton
mill in the South is a bonanza,
which not only keeps a part of its
profit at home and pays better
prices for cotton, but opens new
markets for other farm products
which should alternate the cotton
crops in the fields around the facto
ry. Before manufactures were es
tablished, in the days when Andrew
Jackson was asking "Where shall
the farmer find a home market for
his products?" our farmers were in
comparatively poor condition, sell
ing cheap and buying dear, as com
pared to their present condition. It
was not diversified crops only, but
diversified industries as well, that
wrought tho beneficial change. Sullivan promises to break the
