In the latter part of an editorial

Buchanan and the sub treasury

used where that of Mr. Buchanan

Baxter on this question is growing
stronger," etc. The name of Mr.
Buchanan should have been used in
stead of Mr. Baxter.
prove conclusively that his reference
to his four year's service in the army,
for the South and States' rights, was
made In such a manner as to convey
ust the opposite Idea to that which
would be conveyed by the language
when given in a disconnected ' sen
tence as quoted by the American. As
the language was used by Dr. Kelley
it was not at all susceptible of the con
struction put upon it by the Aracr-
can's correspondent. The Doctor is
ustly proud of his four year's service
n the Confederate army, and the
American's correspondent did him a
manifest injustice by quoting a single
sentence from his speech, without
giving the connection in which It was
"The onlv sin I shall be called up
on to answer for is that I fought four
years for the South and state's rights."

We had thousht that if there was
a paper In Tennessee that would deal
as fairly, if not a3 favorably with an
opponent as with a friend, that paper
was the McMlnnviiie soutnern stan

its character for truth and fairness
that we did not believe it would mis
represent, even by implication, its

We are profoundly grateful to the
Guardian for its good opinion, and as
sure it that we had no thought or in
tention of proving unworthy in this
case. We simply read and accepted
the American's interpretation of the
Doctor's language, and did not take
time to look Into the matter at all
before criticising. On our part it was
purely a case of misplaced confidence
in the American's correspondent.
We are fully satisfied now that Dr.
Kelley used the language in such a
manner and in such connection as to
clcarlv convey to all of his hearers
just the opposite idea of what the lan
guage would mean quoted in a sepa
rate and distinct sentence, as the
American used it. We erred through
haste, and not through any prejudice

The democratic executive commit
tee of the First District have conclud
ed not to put out a condidate in that
District this year, notwithstanding
they have a good chance to elect him
if they did. Alf. Taylor is the regu
lar nominee of the republican party
in that District, and Roderick Ran
dorn Butler is running as an inde
pendent. The democrats say that a
Congressman could be of no particn
lar service to them during the latter
two vears of the present administra'
tion. Thef are going to hold hands
off this time, and let Butler beat Tay
lor, and there seems to be no shadow
of a doubt that he will. Two years
hence Butler will be the republican
nominee, and then it will be Taylor's
time to see that he is defeated. As
Alf cannot do this himself, he will
throw all of his strength to eom
Democrat who can.
While we have no sympathy
whatever for Dr. Jvelley's canvass
and his cranky third party notions,

The production of steel in the
South, from Southern iron, by what
is known as the "basic process," is
now an accorn Dished fact. The first
run of steel was made at Chattanooga,
by the Southern Iron Co., last Tues
day, and proved a success in every
particular. A syndicate with Messrs.
Nat Baxter, Jr., A. M. Shook, and
John II. Inman in the lead, has in
vested about $350,000 in the plant,
and the enterprise has been crowned,
with success. It opens up a new era
of industrial prosperity in the South,
and will put new life and vigor into
all of our iron producing interests.
A BIG ENTERPRISE.
11 arrangements nave been com
Dieted for the establishment or a
mammouth packing house at Nash'
vill, with all necessary stock yards,
etc. The company will have a capi
tal of one million dollars, three hun
dred thousand of which is furnished
by Nashville men, and the remain'
der by Western capitalists. Work
will be commenced at once on the
buildings, and it is expected that
everything will be in readiness for
operations next fall. The following
in regard to the big enterprise. Is
from Thursday's American :
"It is estimated that the first year
300,000 hogs and 50,000 cattle will be
slaughtered, and that this amount
will be annually increased as the
supply increases till the full capacity
of 600,000 hogs, 50,000 to 75,000 cattle
and from 50.000 to 75.000 sheep is
"There will not be a particle of
waste about the establishments, as all
blood, hair, hoofs, horns and bones
will be utilized. The blood will be1
made into what is known as tankage
and sold to the fertilizer companies
throughout the country.
"According to a careful estimate
there are produced within a radius of
100 miles of Nashville annually 840,'
000 hogs, 240,000 cattle and 80,000
sheep, and this will represent the
nucleus that the packing-houses will
have to begin with. This amount, it
is natural to suppose, wil be greatly
increased under the stimulating in
fluence of the mammoth establish
THE LATEST ALLIANCE SCHEME.
The news hits leaked out this week
of a big scheme which is being work
ed up by the Alliance,' which, if it
materializes, will put their sub-treasury
idea into practice, . but under
somewhat different conditions from
the plan proposed in the bill before
congress. It appears that the cotton
committee of the National Alliance
has been negotiating with English
capitalists, and have partially con
summated arrangements with these
capitalists by which they are to ad
vance $32 per bale or two million
bales of the growing crop of cotton.
The planters are to pay 4 per cent,
interest on the advancements. The
cotton is to be stored in Southern
warehouses, and the owners are to
have the privilege of holding it there
for a year, or selling at any time
within that period. It is claimed for
this plan that by thus tying up two
million bales of cotton In warehouses,
the planters would have the advan
tage of the market, and could in a
large measure dictate prices. If the
thing would only work that way it
might be a very good thing for the
planters, but there are grave doubts
as to whether it Would have the de
sired effect. The English market al
ready controls the price of cotton in
the United States, and if English cap
italists get two million bales' of our
cotton in their grasp at two-thirds of
its value, it appears to us that they
will have a decided advantage of the
situation. When the Southern plant
er attempts to play the bull in the
market, he is likely to find the Eng
iisn pear, witn nis Dig mortgage, a
much heavier animal. Thirty-two
dollars per bale on two million bales
would make a sum total of sixty-four
million dollars, and the alliance men
claim for the plan that to turn this
much money loose in the South
would give a great impetus to busi
ness, uotton will probably command
from fifty to sixty dollars per bale
this fall and winter, and the sale of
this two million bales would there
fore turn much more money loose in
the South than this warehousing
plan. We believe there is much
more probability of the plan holding
down the price of cotton than there is
of it pushing the price up, and we
are persuaded that by the time the
planter pays his interest, insurance,
and warehouse fees he will find that
he has less money than he would
have realized by selling outright.

Washington, Sept. 15, 1890.-
Senator Carlisle thinks there is great
danger of a financial panic if the re'
publicans persist in allowing the
amendment to the tariff bill, which
provides for the removal or an inii
ported goods from the Government
bonded warehouses before October
l,to stand. He says, "I went to Sena
tor Aldrich and begged him to with
draw the amendment, but he refused.
The amendment was adopted because
the republicans wish to punish the
importers of the country for their op
position to the tariff bill. We shall
fight the amendment in conference
and try to avoid the crash which
threatens the money market." Sen
ator Vance was equally emphatic in
condemning , the amendment. He
said: "I hardly see how a crash can be
averted, and when It comes the coun
try will have a practical illustration
of some of the Iniquities of this tariff
bill. We shall endeavor to avert
disastrous results In the conference
committee, but I fear that we shall
not be allowed to accomplish any
thing. The republicans seemed de
termined to be unjust, even if it
brings on a financial panic. We can
The tariff bill is going through the
form of being considered by the
Ways and Means committee, but
that committee will do nothing but
recommend non-concurrence in
the Senate amendments, leaving
the fight to take place in the confer
ence committee. The present inten
tion is to gag the House by the pas
sage of a resolution introduced by
Mr. McKinley Saturday, to prevent
consideration or voting upon any of
the Senate amendments by the House
sitting as a committee of the whole.
This action has been taken under
Boss Reed's orders he knows that
there are a number of republicans in
the House who would gladly Vote

by free foreign sugar, and asked
eitherthatthetime .be extended to
July 1, or that the change go into ef
fect immediately. They got no sat
isfaction from the committee. .
The republicans are suspiciously
quiet about the) proposed extra ses
sion, and there is a difference of
opinion regarding it among them.'
Theyall want the extra session, but
lots of them want Mr. Harrison to
assume the responsibility by calling
an extra session, while he, and the
members of his cabinet insist that
Congress should take the responsibil
ity by taking a recess to November
10. The object of them all Is the
samethe passage of the obnoxious
The apportionment bill which has
been Introduced by Representative
Dunnell Is as partisan measure as ev
er was before auy Congress. It Is in
tended to keep the republican party
in pWer for the next ten years. It
was prepared by Robert P. Porter,
the naturalized Englishman at , the
head of the census bureau, and its
passage would be as gross an injus
tice as the republican party in all its
history has ever perpetuated.
The facts about the Reed campaign
are gradually leaking out. It is now
certain that the protected manufac
turers had the "fat fried" out of them
to the extent of at least $100,000 to
elect Boss Reed, who did so much
for them in railroading the iue
handled tariff bill through the House.
No wonder the republicans say that
money was used In Maine ; and yet,
Reed got a smaller vote than he did
in 188G or '88.
The success of the democrats in
preventing the seating of two negro
contestants in the House last week by
breaking a quorum has caused many
democrats to ask why the same tac
tics were not adopted at the begin
ning of the session in order to have
prevented the adoption of Reed's
Rules. I am in a position to answer
that question. The idea of breaking
a quorum by absenting themselves
from the House was largely favored
by the democrats, and would . have
undoubtedly been adopted by them,
but for the fact that Mr. Carlisle,then
a member or the House ana the rec
ognized democratic leader, and the
late Samuel J. Randall, then on his
death bed, advised against it.
