HOSE A VERY RACY LETTER, 'Louis" Is Again in a State of Perplexity, And Turna to Buck With a Beoital of His Woes Ha Aaka the Latter Some Knotty Questions. Clarksville, Tenn., Srp. 15, '92, -My Dear liuck : I am afraid my letter of the 9th will give you some trouble, but I hope not. It was writ ten by me after having been talked to by three or four straight Demo crats, and I was worried. I hope to he tr from you in a few days. While you did not say anything in your platform about the sub-treasury, land loan and railroad purchase, our folks down here still stick to the old plat form and. are insisting thntitisall right. I am called upon frequently to give my ideas about these things, but have not the information at hand and wish you would furnish me with the outline of your argument on these measures. A few days ago I was waited upon by four men and I did not discover until the next day that a trick had been put up on me by some of the regulars. The first man was a railroad man. He told me that he wanted to know ho tt to vote, and desired to talk with me on the subject. I agreed to give him light He said he wanted to know something about the sub-treasury and land loan schemes. I told him that the sub treasury and land lean schemes were the greatest things that ever evolved from the brain of man. Says I : "You see ray land around us? Under the land loan scheme I can mortgage this land to the government and get money at 2 per cent. You see those cattle, that crop of tobacco out there ? Well, if the sub-treasury bill is passed I can get money on that and will have to pay no interest and hold it until the prices go up ; then I ean sell it for a big price. You see I can hold it un til they are forced to pay what I ask for it. And so it Is with my wheat, my corn and other products. "About the time I reached this po'nt in my argument one of my tenants came in, also a hired hand, and with them a small farmer in the neighborhood, and they said tney also wanted some political sunshine. I went over the same ground covered above, and con tinuing, said: "Or I can borrow money by giving personal security, direct from the government at 2 per cent. The . first man said : "But will you please.cx plain where I am going to come in ? I have no land, no crops and no one to go my securi ty." I thought I would put an end to that line of argument, and said "but your employer will be able to pay you better wages."" He ans wered me: "No, prosperity doesn't always beget generosity, neither does success in any shape bring with it always a disposition to help the needy." He said : "Several years ago I received one dollar and twenty five cents per day from the railroad corporation Ian now working foi. It employed eight or ten men to do the work it makes four do now. I have seen its road increased from a few miles up into hundreds, and have read where they are paying larger dividends each year. Its stock, which a few years ago was worth only 25 cents on the dollar, is now worth 80 cents, and yet I am receiv ing only ninety cents per day for do ing now what two men used to do; my wages have not been increased, and I don't see what good I am going to receive from these things you favor." My hired hand asked: "Please tell me where I am going to come in?1' I have no land, no crop?; I am work ing for $10.00 per month. I can't borrow money from the subtreasury, for I can't give personal security. I tried to get you to go my security for a few dollars the other day and you refused to do so. I have no friend to sign my note." "Well," said I, "but I will pay you better wages." "No," said he, "you used to pay me $15 per month when you had 100 acres, two horses and a few cattle; now you have five times more land, you have many horses, you have become in better circumstances and I pay you just as much for what I buy from you and receive $5 per month less." My tenant then put in and said to me: "Why I never could get my crops into tho sub-treasury, for you own one-half, and my bills for meat, bread and clothing at the end of the year are more than my crop is worth, and you make me sell to the first buyer that comes around and pay you, and The' -sub-! then I have nothing left treasury won't do me any good My neighbor, the small farmer, said : "I could not mortgage my farm, for I haven't enough to mortgage, and if I was to mortgage it and spend the money in pacing high prices, there wouldn't be anything left. I would need money again after awhile and W0U,d I " tha? The reijuouy you BUggetu is ouiy itjuipo- rary. If I borrow $100 to-day I may be hapr.y while it lasts, but when it is gone and my note fulls due, bow am I going to meet it ? I have no credit, no one to go on my note to the keeper of the sub-treasury." They all then said to me, "your schemes won't do, they might help you, but the poor, needy, hard work ing people of this country need some thing that will make the dollars Ihey earn purchase their value; the trouble is we have to pay two dollars' for every dollar's worth we buy. Every time we make a dollar, it is not worth more than half the dollar's worth.of goods some high protective manufacturer makes, for it takes two of our dollar to get one dollar's worth of his good." One said to me: "Don't you know that if we trade dollars, apd I give you two every time you give me one that you will soon have all my money 7" 01 course, Buck, there was but one way to answer that question. I said "yes." Then he said : "Don't you know that everyjjtime we buy one dollar's worth of goods manufactured by our Northern and Eastern folks that we paylthem two dollars for it ?" I had to say "yes." Then he said : "Are you surprised that in the North and East there is in circulation $75 per capita, whileTdown heie we have less than $10 per capita?" "Well," says I, "What does that prove?" "Why," he said, "that this out rageous tariff is causing an unequal distribution of wealth." "Well," but I said to them : "Buchanan was en titled to a renomination, he has been treated bad by the Democrats," and they said, "That may be so, but what has Buchanan to do with the condi tion of our families. They have been treated badly by this infamous tariff, and the Republican party is now trying to pass a force bill to keep us from voting so they can keep up this robber tariff, and we purpose to look after our homes and vote the straight Democratic ticket as long as we live, whether Mr. Buchanan ever gets another office or not. We don't think Mr. Buchanan is la any danger of suffering, and we do think our families are." "But," says I, "John wants to go to Congress, Dick and Slaughter to the Legislature; Mc Dowell wants to go to the Senate and I want to be coal oil inspector," and aa they walked away one of them said, "That's the milk in the cocoa- nut, some fellows are mad because the Democrats won't give them of fice." Now Buck, really how is a man to reason with such numbskulls ? But it was a put up job. That's the way they ark talking down here now, and many of our folks who are not ex pecting office are beginning to weaken in the faith. By the way, they say down here that King is having a good time in the penitentiary, and that you haven't put him to work. I think you had better make wade work him a little, Buck, until after the elec tion anyhow, and then you can par don him if you want to. But really, Buck, jt ain't right to hang a poor un- influential man and turn a rich one loose for the same sort of crime. John and the Major are shaking the bushes down in Stewart. Please write me at once. I have other things to write you about, but my letter is now too long. You will hear from me again in a day or two. Yours faithfully, Louis. Druffgiata Who Bubatitnte.

Members of Forbes Bivouao Full of Enthusiasm Over the Suooeea ot the Confederate Ke union at the Capital City of Williamaon County. - The old Confederate veterans who returned this morning from the State meeting and reunion at Franklin, Tenn., are brimful and running over with' enthusiasm at the success of the meeting, in fact one would suppose they had all heretofore fallen from grace and had got religion again. They report the largest attendance at their business meeting ever had since the formation' of the associa- tion, - and the most enthusiastic, showing the interest increasing among the old Boldiers In their or ganization. A new feature of this meeting was the first meeting of the State division of United Confed erte Veterans, and the Sons of Con ferate Soldiers, both of which were well attended. That prince of reb els, Gen. W. II." Jackson, familiarly known as "Old Red,",was elected major-gen'l of the United Confeder ate Veterans and a State association of the sons was organized. The business meeting was a grand success and closed its session Thurs day morning by electing Col. Jno. M. Taylor, president and naming Jackson, Tenn. as the next place ot meeting. As for the entertainment, it was simply royal, with a big R. At 8 p. m. Wednesday the large court room was literally packed with old vets and the people of Franklin, who lis tened with rapt attention to one of the most affecting and chaste con certs ever had, consisting of decla mations, song", etc.by th young ladies and'; gentlemenVof Franklin and Nashville. It was all fine- splendid. The recitation of "The Conquered Banner" and "The Grave of the Tennessee Volunteer" brought tears like raiui from the eyes of the old soldiers, while "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground" was no- less af fecting, but 'space will not allow us to say more, and It would be invidi ous to name anyone where all did their parts so perfectly. In a word, It was one grand"sucerss. Th'ence the old boys were taken "down stairs and to tables literally'covered with all that man could desire, while dozens of beautiful young ladies were at hand to urgo the boys to eat more. It was such a change from the parched corn ration which the boys had on a former visit to Franklin they had to pinch themselves to ascertain whetherjthey were still in ItheEflesh or;within tbejpearly gates. After all the visitors had enough, the citizens were treated to the feast and at 1 o'clock a. m. all were satisfied, and bushels left 100 cakes not being cut. The reunion Thurs day was held In Col. McGavock's grove, on ground marched over by Quarles' Brigade when they made the charge on the enemys' works Nov. 30, 18G1, and was held as sa cred ground by a number who were then there. By 9 a. m. the old veterans in front on foot this part covered about four squares preceded by a float upon which were seated fourteen young ladies all beauties representing every Southern State and the District of Columbia; this was followed by another float upon which was seated thirty beautiful little girls, each with a banner representing the thirty Bivouacs of Veterans. The Forbes boys had for sponger Miss fat tie Do- Graffenreid, a sweet little miss, and the boys puid their respects and swore eternal fealty, and should Miss Pattie come to Clarksville the Forbes boys will see she has a good time. Following the old and young soldiers came, fourteen young ladies, lovely in their costumes, with their escorts, elegantly mounted and presenting a fine appearance. These were fol lowed by carriages, buggies, wagons and mounted men, reaching from town to the grove. At the grove everything was im mense. Think cr a beautiful blue grass pasture of a hundred acres filled with vehicles, horses, men and wom en; it is indescribable. Seats were provided for five thousand ; these were not half suffieent to seat the crowd, who stood around; old soldiers meeting old comrade, hugging and crying. The speeches by Mr. Hen derson, Judge Caldwell and Ed. Bax ter, who was orator of the day, were grand and suited to the occasion, and an oration by young Mr. Wall was specially commended by all who heard it, and publicly commended by Gen. Jackson. The part taken by Col. McGavock in having the soldiers killed at Franklin reinterred in a beautiful plat, and so cared for, received the attention of the State Association by making Col. McGavock an honorary member and the exercises on the stand when Gen. Jackson attached the budge of the order to the old Colonel's coat was affecting in the ex treme, bringing tears from thousands of eyes. .After speaking, first the old sol diers, then the multitude, were let into the lot where twenty-four tables, each one hundred yards long, were loaded with fine barbecue, hams, pickles, bread and pies, filling the 10,000 people to their satisfaction. Many visited the Confederate cemetery where they were much In terested In locating the graves of brothers and friends. We reserve for another occasion to say something In reference to this cemetery. The bat tie-field was visited by all the boys who were engaged therein '64. It had been marked by flags, showing the line of the works, the positions of dif ferent brigades, and place where Cle burne, Btrahl, Adams, and others fell. The boys of the 49th stood on the site of the old gln-hooje, and located the exact position where number of their brave comrades fell. Immediately where the 49th struck the works, the students of Wall A Moouey's Academy, (which is built on the old battle-field) have partially built a monument, now about fifteen feet high, called the Battle-field Mon ument. This point was marked: "Center of Quarles' Brigade. Nov. 30, '64." It was the grandest thing ever known in Tennessee. The boys were enthused ; everybody was satisfied and Clarksville, who so successfully inaugurated these reunions, lays the palm at the feet of Franklin and cheerfullysay we are outdone. All the boys from here were royal ly entertained by the citizens of Franklin, and it was a hard matter for them to leave. Indeed, Frank Beaumont, who represented Alf. Robb Bivouac, and left home to stay one day, could not be induced to leave until to-day, Friday. We can not recall all the names so lovingly called out by the boys, but Mr. Bennett, Mr. Winstead,Tom Per kins, Mr. Roberts, Mayor E.ving, Col. Cowan and others are remem bered.but the old fellows were too full for intelligent talk, and we feel as sured if any citizen of Fanklin, visit ing Clarksville, will only let it be known he or she will lack no good thing.

The Xaeue Joined for Oonrreaa and Warm Work Ahead. Memphis Scimitar: The Issue Is now joined in this district bet wet n Democrats. Republicans and People's party. Tho nomination of Col. T. V Neal for Congress was predicted by the Scimitar several days ago, and he will go Into the campaign with the determination to make a strong fight. John II. McDowell hates Col. Patterson personally with a inon cordial hate than the traditional op position the devil has to holy water McDowell Will beat around in thin district and will make a strong effort to down Col. Patterson, snd to accom plish this will be willing to make any" kind of a deal with the Repub licans. Nothing further has been done by the Republicans towards a coalition with the Third party, but there will be a dicker, the leaders to the con trary notwithstanding. In Harde man county the Third party has some following, and Col. Patterson has already been there, where he made a series of twelve speeches. But in Fayette county the Third party is stronger than in any other section of this district, and Senator Harris and Bob Taylor will go there at an early date. On the night of September 20th the two distinguished gentlemen will appeir In Memphis and entertain the Democrats. They will also make some speeches in the Lucy and Cuba neighborhoods, where the Third party bos some followers. Col. Patterson will return from East Tennessee after he has finished a term of speeches, and he will once more go over certain parts of the dis trict.
