Capl. Clark and the Cincinnati
Railroad.
The Hickman CoCRiEa assures us
that Capt. Clark is a real old fashioned
dirt-road Democrat, and that if he goes
to the Senate he will certainly vote
against the Cincinnati Southern Rail
way bill.
It would be difficult to ucdestaod bow
.dj one as thoroughly opposed to mon
opolies as Mr. Clark ia, could do other
wise than oppose such a bill as that ask
ed for by the Cincinnati trustees. Aside
from the extrao'dinary privileges asked
for in the bill, the wording of it as drawn
up bj them, shows a deliberate attempt
to decleve and defraud the Taialators
ni wmf i dt Kentucky as for instance
in their agreement to waive their rights
as noo-resideuU of the State, which
agreement they very well knew Lad no
binding force and would not prevent ther'
from takirjg advantage of the privilege
whatever they pleased.
Capt. Clark denounced the Louiaille
and Nashville Railway Company is a
soulless and oppressive uionopoly.iud
yet it u known that the Cincinnati tus
tees utterly refuse a charter giviog to
them like extended and liberal powra.

editorially. ou the race, outside of pre
senting their politic! views to our read
crs, which they themselves are anxious
to do. They are both our personal
friends and democrats worthy of support,
and both well known in this couuty.
Col. Henry S. Hale commenced his
life at the stump, and has successfully
built himself up, bc.Th in fortune and an
honorable position ia society. He has
been a successful man. Entered the late
war as a private soldier, and filled every
office in the line up to the Colonelcy of
his regiment, then as a civilian he has
filled the office of sheriff successfully for
two terms, and has personal qualiScations
that make him popular with the people.
lion. W. C. Clark, his competitor, has
worked himself up from the humble
walks ot life. He was a carpeotor before
the war, but is now engaged in farming.
He too served four years in the war. In
1867 he was elected as Representative
from this county iu the State Legisla
ture. He is very popular, and has many
warm friends. Either of these if elect
ed, would make a Senator of ability.
They differ materially on some questions,
for instance, negro testimony, and their
arguments are good on both sides. We
are clad that they discuss it, that our
people may hear both 6ides, but it is a
question that democrats should not split
the ticket on.

K Kn-Hiuz Bands In tbe South

?o. JN. B. Forrest is here to testify
before the Ku Klux Committee, but as

seemingly 6tudies in his mind the pro

a,st:a wai . r -w
"uiout proper reflection, lie is
seat lDhis attire, and is just such a man
as onejouij never tbmk to be Gen. N
B. Forfegt, of Confederate fa me.
In civersation to day the General
wasa-lft.l about -the Ku Klux Klan, and
$S3'u L w.- .tJ kuu
jaauar and leader ot that organuatiou ;
tot as .yertie liad failed to ascertain that

I purposes, probably would line to see
suen a ooay in me cuuiu. xns upur
tunities for observation, he said," were
very great, and if such a band as the
Ku Klux existed, he would kuowit. He
did not believe iu its existence. Gen.
Forrest was then asked the question,
What theD, iu your opinion, is the
cause of so many acts of violcuce being
reported and telegraphed North as Ku
Klux outrages?" To this he replied as
follows :
"It may arise from various causes.
My theory, however, is that a class of
men, who have not the welfare of the
Sou'h at heart, came from the North,
and knowiug that tbe political rights of
many of the Southern people are denied
them they . operate with the negroes to
secure their votes aud elevate them to
positions of trust and responsibility. Se
cret leagues are formed; incendiary
speeches calculated to do irreparable in
jury are maae. lhe employer is aeuieu
tbe services of his paid laborers, as tliey
flock to these leagues, aud are taught in
subordination. The result is that the
substantial citizens of that section- of the j
couutry wherciu these men opetato are
regarded with distrust, and socially os i
tracized. They secure lucrative offices;!
defraud the people, aud in all their acts
seemingly endeavor to excite public
opinion against them. As a natural con
sequence at intervals the indjgnatiou
probably ot an individual may be arom
ed and an individual asault made, which
is soon inugoifieifinto a Ku Klux out
rage. Now I do not preteud to deny
that in some instances men have beeu
killed, not, however, indiscriuyStely
slaughtered. Tho same motive
pels a man to kill his brother
lork, Massachusetts, or XUaioeapp.ies
as well in Alabama, North CaCSliua, cjr
Texas, tbe difference being that iu the
latter Stites the victim by his conduct
tempts the murderer to his bloody work.
The cases are few, but of course are
bloodthirsty people.""Xgain, bad men
come South with no fixed purpose in
view. They seem to float alo-g, and
like 'Micawber,' await something tJJK
up. In their idleness they J 3
among the negroes, excite their HUsti
tious feelings against their employees,
and cau--e a general stagnation in agri
cultural pursuits. When remonstrated
with for such coot, instead of allow
ing the slanderer 'to peacefully, pursue
the even tenor of his way they fSteuopt
to revive old sores and make assertions
calculated to excite anger and bad feel
ing. Tbe result may be that such men
are ordered to leave or pursue some vo
cation, just the same as a vagrant may
be locked up in Washington or a uspi
cious character ordered out of it. This,
I presume, is atonCe called a Ku Klux
outrage?"
Geo. Forrest added that "no North
em man settling in the South with the
fixed purpose of developiug its resources
would be molested, even though he
entertained strong Radical opinions. On
the contrary, he would be welcomed.
Let the people know that he comes to be
one of them, to live among them, and
by his labor or means tend to build up
the waste places, I care not what his po
litical faith may be, he would be gladly
received and even assisted by the South
ern people." He d "be believed be
was charged with organizing bands of
Ku Klux among the men employed in
the construction of a railroad from Sel
ma, Ala., to Memphis, Tenn., and for
which he had been summoned to answer
before the Outrage Committee ; but"
said the General, "the charge is so ab
surd that I often wonder who could have
furnished such information, or whose
idle brain could have conceived it. I am
constructing a road from Selma to Mem
phis, and employ a large number of la
borers. Upon assuming tbe work I gave
special itructions to those onder me in
authority who are charged with obtain
ing mechanic, workmen, etc., under no
consideration to allow politics to be a
barrier to the employment of any man ;
on the contrary, to secure good work
men. be they white or black. As. to the
forming of bands of Ku Klux among
them, it is too ridiculous to entertain a
moment. hy, I really believe that
were a vote taken to day among those
working uuder me in thecoostruction of
that enterprise, there would be found
three Rupublicau votes to one Demo
cratie. The people of the South," he
said'had accepted the. situation, and
were as orderly and law-abiding people
as can be found -in any section of the
country. Under the Reconstruction acts
outrages were committed, not by Ku
Klux ; but since 18G8 o.ber than indi
vidual troubles arising between man and
man, liable to arise any place they have
demeaned . themselves with becoming
propriety, and yield a hearty obedience
to tbe law."
In answer to a second question
whether he doubted the existence of the
Kn Klux Gen. Forrest said, very cm
phatically, "I do. My facilities for ob j
servauon pamcuiany ieu mo
knowingly of Alabama and Tennessee. I
nave vifited every town along the line of
the projected road, from Memphis to
Selma, making speeches in tbe interest
of the road. I nave endeavored, among
the people, to arrive at the truth as to its
organixation, and have as yet failed to
find any individual who krw of such an
organization; audi haveSo hesitancy
in asserting that, did it exist, the inhab
U1I
MR.
itants with whom I came in contact woulJ
have apprised me of that fact. I have
also traveled extensively through all
portions of the South, and as far aa my
judgment and personal observation led
me to believe, I can safely assert that no
such band has an existence in any of the
Southern States. I have myself been
personally abused as being the leader of
the Klan. I have willingly borne this
vituperation heaped upon me because I
did not desire to appear prominently be
fore the public iu priut, and knowing my
denial would entangle me into a contro
versy which I did oot court ; hence I re
mained silent. I propose to continue on
with my work iu the South, building rail
roads and machine shops, and if thereby
I can give employment to the mauy who
need it, I shall consider I have done a
good work in relieving the distresses of
the widows and orphans the vicissitudes
of war have made and brought to niise-
y. I have no ambition for politicaf
calling as a Civil Engineer, and do what
I can to relieve the Southern people in
an unostentatious way.
Sharp Word llettveen Germany
and England.
New York, June 24. A special dis
patch to the Herald from Berlin the 23d,
says a eenous complication has arisen
between Germany and Pogland. Severe
dispatches are passing between Bismarck
and Granville.
The Government observes impenetra
ble silence on the subject of the present
difficulty, but I am informed Bismarck
has addressed a note to the German rep
resentative in London, informing him
that the Imperial Government decided to
acquire Heligoland, and empowering
him to make a proposition to the British
Government for the purchase of the
sland.
Earl Granville replied in the same

upon which Bismarck has again address
ed the Briti.-h Government through
Count Bernstorff, declaring the acquis!
ion of Heligoland necessary for the
protection of tbe Germau coast, reciting
as an instance its facilities for coaling
and immunity from attack which the
rencli fleet enjoyed at Heligoland, by
which it was enabled to blockade Ham
burg and paralyze the commerce of the
German coast. He looked upon Heligo
land, on account of its tse proximity,
an German territory, and its. possession
by any foreign power as a standing me
nace to Germany.
Earl Granville again replies that Eng
land was only bound to consider her own
iuterests. The wish of the German Gov
ernment to acquire Heligoland did not
constitute her right to it, as the island
had never been uuder German rule.

A Startling Series of Land Sinks.
New York, July 23. The bottom
is dropping out of the State of New Jer
sey. In Warren county, during the past
few days, a number of deep holes have
been suddenly made by the earth sinking
down into some fearful, unknown sub
terranean depths. The first notice was
in the bottom of the-i'orris and Essex
canal, on the seven mj-..Vevel, between
Broadway and New Village. All the
water in the canal went down that hole.
Then half a dozen holes opened in the
corn fields and woods, taking down into
the bowels of tbe earth great patches of
corn, and even sinking trees out of sight.
In addition to this there are scores of
great, long and deep fissures there.
On Wednesday night another big bole
opened in the' canal. Rumbling noises
were heard under the Methodist Church
iu Broadway, and nobody will venture
into the building for fear of it going
down. The wildest excitement prevails
among the people, who deem that any
given spot of land in all that couutry is
liable to plunge half way to China at any
moment. Prices of real estate have
naturally gone down, as the real estate
itself has. The Morris and Essex Canal
is utterly ruined. Its course must be
altogether changed to avoid this district,
if it is intended toever hold water enough
for a sunfish to float in.

From the New Madrid Record.
Sheriff Dawson received by last Sun
day's mail a capias writ from Webster
county, for the arrest of one William
Fallis. charged with unlawfully breaking
tbe jail of that county. At the time of
bis confinement Fallis was indicted for
Grand Larceny in Wright county.
Ascertaining that Fallis was employed
as a laborer by Mr. Frank Payne,
the Sheriff and Mr. Mark Sherwood
went to arrest him. Tbey found
Fallis, with the other farm hands, in the
corn pens enjoying the noon rest. Mr.
Sherwood got down hitched his horse and
quietly walked up to the door, while the
Sheriff rode past, and engaged the party
in conversation about the whereabouts of
Mr. Payne. As soon Mr. Sherwood
got into position he covered the door with
a navy six. The Sheriff dismounted and
called Fallis to come out, which he did
with au innocent, injured air. The writ
was read to him, and he was taken to the
jail and locked up. He denies ever
having been in Wright or Webster couo
ties, but as his name and description
answer exactly, Sheriff Dawson declines
to take his word for it. He will be taken
to Webster county in a short time.
Fallis arrived in our county about
three weeks ago, and worked for Mr.
Phillip Raidtfour days, and the remain
derof the time at Mr. Payne's. He has

A TEAR'S AXS1YCR.
BT J. T. NATEtt.
It was sunset hour. The magnificent
orb of day now glided slowly down the
western sky into the fleecy ermine cloudfc.
bordering them with tassels of gold and
prismatic hues, and sheeting the moun
tain crests with yellow and crimson On
through the evening air came merry
singing zephyrs, scattering a thousand
perfumes around, and bearing across th.
lakes the gossamer mists formed by a
picturesque marsh near tbe edge of a
grassy plain.
It was upon this beautiful panorama
of nature that Wilmot Evans dreamily
gazed. He was an artist by profession, and
for a moment the fair being by bis side
was forgotten, ao intent waa he in tbe
view.
Presently a bright though sad smile
lit up his featufg-..i4 k"urn4 ta hi.
'Ah, lUaiUwhat would l not give to
depict such a scene on canvass. No one
but a painter can conceive its beauties
fully. No one but a painter knows of
the many anxious days and sleepless
uight3 required to portray its charms
"Oh, yes, Wilmot," the lady returned,
"I am fully aware that many severe trials
must be undergone before umeis reach
ed ; but when jour troubles are at au
end do you not feel fully recompensed
for your labor? Do not be discouraged,
Wilmot; persevere in your attempts.
and fortune must soon smile on your
endeavors.
While yet speaking the young lady
started toward the lake, and was followed
by Wilmot, who, unlocking a little boat on
the shore, sprang into it, and then led
Maud to a seat.
Soon tbe sails filled and the boat si
lently dashed through the waters, until
it reached a large farmhouse on the op
posite bank.
While Maud and Wilmot are walking
up the lawn let as go back a little into
their histories.
Wilmot Evan, was the son of a poor
carpenter; and from bis earliest infancy
was inured to hard labor. He received
very little education; yet his superior
talents enabled him to study even diffi
cult works in private. It was not until
long after he bad left the paternal roof
that he entered a college ; and there, by
dint of severe application succeeded in
finishing his course in three years.
His benefactor, who bad sent him to
college, afterward procured him a place
in the studio of au eminent artist.
Day by day Wilmot rose higher in his
profession, and at the present time was
considered, in the parlauce of the world,
as one worthy of patronage.
Such was Wilmot iuvans. His be
trothed, a beautiful, blue eyed blonde,
was the only daughter of a wealthy Phil
adelphian, who had come to seek recrea
tion m the quietude of the country.
From the very first moment that Wil
mot beheld Maud Ewinghe was in love.
Her open, childish and natural manner
charmed him. sod in defiance of the
As yet, Maud's father knew nothing
of tbe existing engagement. Maud left
the news to be carried by Wilmot, and
Wilmot felt a reluctance to inform Mr.
Ewing. Something told him that Bob
ert Ewing would never consent to a
match so unequal in a pecuniary point
of view. Then Wilmot determined to
go into the world and reap the harvest
that would secure his bride. He told
his intentions to Maud and she sanction
ed them. The object bad now become
fixed in Wilmot's head, and nothing
could turn him from his course.
One bright morning he left the large
farmhouse and the farewells of the many
city visitors. For a few days after his
departure, the place seemed ever so lone
some, but soon the same hilarity of spir
its returned, and even Maud was gay.
As for the gentlemen, they appeared to
be overjoyed when Wilmot was gone.
Harry Adams, especially, was delighted
with the idea, for now be could cultivate
Miss Ewing'a society much more. '
Picnics, parties, boatrides, all that
tended .to promote pleasure, was intro
duced;" and on those occasions, Harry
Adams was Maud'a inevitable escort.
The other ladies often smiled archly
when the attachment of Adams to Maud
was the subject of conversation ; bat iu
secret, regretted the loss of tlieir favorite.
"Harry," said one of the gentlemen
who were standing under tbe elm tree
shade after dinner on a lovely day,
"Harry 1 I say, do forget Miss Ewing
this afternoon, and enjoy a boat ride
with us."
It.was Frank Palmer that spoke; a
small 6ized man with a grizzly moustache.
and no great favorite, either, with tbe
lady just mentioned by him, or with any
other lady of the party.
"Perhaps I may, Palmer,'.' said Harry,
"but yoo must first promise that the wine

could we not invite some of the ladies?"
"No, we had better not. Let ns keep
this affair to ourselves," remarked one
nf the P-entlemen.
Thev did keep it to themselves, for it
was not until the ladies beheld the boat
far nnt an the lake that they knew the
nrliereahnnta of their callants.
And what a scene that boat offered
when the desired shore wa. reached.
Sandwiches, glasses and bottle, lay pro
miscuously around, while here and there
could be seen a boot, paper collar, or a
fragment of hat. Evidently a struggle
had transpired. Harry Adams is restine
on the grassy bank ; he doe. not look

The two friends then went to the boat,
to drown their sorrows in the last bottle
of champagne.
It seem, that during the sail a discus
sion arose as to whom in the company
was looked upon most favorably by Maud
Ewiag.

The decision wa. given io favor of
Adams, bat Palmer broke forth, saying:
"Harry, be cot flattered, yoo hava oot
yet thought of Wilmot Evaoa, who I
think ia Maud'a promised husband."
Thus they began, and from alight
remarks generated a foolish quarrel.
If Harry Adams had been close ob
server, be would have detected in Pal-
mors voice, during hi. apology, a toaoh
of irony. Palmer waa not ona to be
easily vanquished by an opponent ; ao
iaiung to gain bis point by physical
means, be determined to adopt another

and he waa satisfied with the beginning.

influence. He know that tbe nentlemaa

pain to her. Letter after letter tho
