The convention paper and people are giving many reasons why their bide did l ot cany in the late election, nays the McKeiizie Herald. Tlier bav the elec tion was held tro soon; that the people were not aroused to the importance of the question; that the convention Hpeak lis were Lot big enough and bhrewd enough to make an appeal to citizens, regardless of party linns, etc , but to our mind the main reason is aptly expressed in the following taken from the Memphis Scimitar, a .strong convention advocate: "The prime cause of the defeat of the convention proposition wan the distrust which years of migovernment have en gendered in the mind of Tennesseaus. They have arrived at the point where thev would rather hear the ills thev have than llv to others that they suspect to be hidden in every scheme of a public na ture. For this the politicians that have brought the administration of all'airs into disrepute and bacritieed the interest of the State to their Hellish purposes are to blame." KESOLCTIONS OF RESPECT.

The visitation of death under any circumstances is a solemn event, and speaks even wiili an ad monition that oimlit to come home to every heart. Indeed, in the golden days of classic Home death was reuarded as such an evil that, like the name ol the iieiiy in ancient Israel, it was unlaw (id to speak of it aloud, but we who have been Instruct ed in the mysteries of our fraternity and believe in the immortality of the soul ami the resurrec tion of t lie body, regard It as only the gateway that leads from earth to Heaven; from mortality to immortality; that mis life "is but a pilgrimage, and that beyond the river there is rest for the weary foot-sore iiilurim. we sorrow and our hearts are heavy under this mournful loss, for this is natural, and' lie who has stood by the grave of a valued friend will not re buke our tears. The loss to a wife of a devoted husband, the loss to children of a beloved father and tlie loss to the fraternity a true brother. mother David Alsup was born September 19, is-.'", and died January 24, 18.)7.
