The legislature will .take a recess
to-morrow until Feb. 11th.
The Grand ;LJe of Mi-ion of
Tennessee is in session in Nashville.

President Polk, of the National
Farmers' Alliance, endorses the ac
tion of the several Southern States ii
wlthhnlrfinsr appropriations to th
World's Fair until the Force bill
finally and forever shelved.

William Alfred Peffer, will occupj

Now that the F..roe uul is sid
tracked, if all tho Democratic legis
latures. both North and South, will
follow the exanip e of Tennessee a
nia.iv of them alreadv have aud re
fuse any appropriation to the World'
Fair until the Force bill is aban
doued, the infamous measure will be
scotched right on the side track where
t now lies.
TilB people are mighty aud wl
prevail. In thunder tones at the las
flection they said to the Republican
' we want none of your Force meas
ure.x." Rut these same Republican?
had vet a little cinch on offl ;e and
. m
heeded not the warning. Then did
the people rise up and say: "VV-
will hit you where you live that is,
on vour pocket we will withhold
appropriations from the WorlJf
Fair." Then did the mighty Repub
lican money ch ingent tremble, and
behold their French rule? aud the.r
Force bills were all scotched.
When the news was read to the
Tennessee House that the cloture rule
and with it the Force bill, bad bet n
side tracked a second time, the infor
mation was greeted with enthusiaR
tic cheers. Or as Mr. Hoar and Mr
Aldrich would remark, "with rebe
veils. "The terms "plantation man
ners" and "rebel yells" seem'to fright
en so ne of the "New 8 a h's oveily
reconstructed," but they have no ter
ror for the old gu ird. We accept the
terms the Republicans use, an
aimply move to let them veil.
After all, aud aside trom the
Force bill otiestiou. would it uot be
better to let the World's Fair takt-
care of itself and Tennessee spen t its
money on public rotds? Give Ten
nessee i good macadamized public
roads to everykcivil district, and oui
"wonderful resources" will display
themselyes and immigrants will Hoc I
to this state from ajl parts of tlx
world. Two hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars expended in public roadi
would benefit the people of Tennesse
a great deal more than the biggest
display made in Chicago at the
World's Fair.
Cut these names out and paste
them in your little book, and when
you are breathing anathemas against
the rotten aud corrupt Republican
party, remember a saving clause in
their behalf. They are the men wh
bared their backs to the party lash
and faced the President's owns, and
Htood out manfully for constitutional
government and against partisan In
justice, and voted with the Democrat
against the Iniquitous Force bill, tbt
foulest measure that ever besmirched
the calendar of the United State"
Senate, Their names are: Senator
Cameron, Jones of Nevada, Stewart.
Teller, Washburn and Walcott.
Tub sentiment expressed by the
Tennessee legislature in withholding
all appropriations from the World's
Fair until the Force bill is finally
disposed of, has been echoed all over
the laud. Nearly all the Southern
States have adopted similar resolu
tions, and Illiuoio, Indiana and New
Jersey have done the same. There
are others yet to hear from, and if the
monster sticks its head up again It
will be hit from all sides. When this
Iniquitous Force bill Is dead and rot
ten and almost forgotten, let this ot
remenibered, that the man who fav
ored it has committed the unpardon
able sin. Socially and politically he
should be eternally damned.
There are two things this legisla
ture should do, if they do nothing
else. TUese re 10 repair the Capitol
and build a new penitentiary on a
new site. From au economic poiut
of view aloue, both these expendi
tures would be wise. The Capitol Is
out of repair and is rapidly getting
"worst. A little money now will stop
the ravages that in a few years will
be past healing. As for Ihe peniten
tiary, the ground it now cumbers is
very valuable and can be sold for a
large sum. Five miles from the city
would be a better place for the build
ing, and larger grounds, with better
sewerage facilities and better venti
lation, can be gotton for several
thousands less money. Aside from
the advantage it would be to Nash
ville, and ti the health of the con
victs, from a purely economic view
the new buildings should be on new
, Senator Carlisle makes some
interesting comparisons with figures
in the February Forum, between the
standing armies of other countries
and the enormous and ever growing
pensiou listof this government. Con
cluding he says: "No standing army
in the world costs the people so much
as our army . of discharged soldiers.
Although we are at peace among our
selves and with all the world, and
have no foreign or domestic policy
to make such an expenditure neces
sary, we are paying more than $135,
000,000 annually to the soldiers of a
war that closed twenty-five years ago.
The payment of reasonable pensions,
on account of wounds actually re
ceived and diseases actually con
tracted in the military or naval forces
intimeof war, is just and right In it
self, and is, moreover, the wisest
policy that can be adopted by a gov
ernment which relies for its defense
almost exclusively upon the volur
tary services of Its citizens; but the
gratuitous distribution of public
money among certain classes of the
people is neither Just nor consistent
with the character of our. institu

In behalf of Maury county we re
lurn thanks to Gov. Buchanan for his
tppointmeut of Dr. D. G. Godwlu, of
-?hlhv. to the imoortniant office of
Commissioner of Agriculture. Dr.
1ml win was born and raised near
Godwin's Station lu this county, and
uis old neighbors have a lingering
md Htronc attachment for him. and
have viewed his elevation, first by
rha nitizens of his adonted county of
ihelbv to a seat in the legislature
and now his appointment to this po-
liMon. with much pleasure. Dr.
Jodwin has two brothers still livii g
u this county. Col. A. 8. Godwin and
Mr. Polk Godwin. He is a gentle-
nan of energy and capacity, and will
administer the affairs of the office
ith that intelligence and fidelity
that will reflect credit upou Mr.
Buchanan's administration. Dr.
Godwin was a gallant Confederate
aoldler. and his old comrades in this
county will welcome his appoints

Col. D. W. Flagler, who was last
week made Chief of Ordnance at
Washington, has a number of frieuds
here who will rejoice iu his promo
tion. He was- here a few months
some three years ago, in charge of the
arsenal, aud by his sociability, ur
banity, and genial good spirits, made
friends of all with whom he met
Col. Flagler and Major Isaac Arnold,
who now has the arsenal in charge,
are warm personal frieuds; and . Co
lumbia is doubly fortunate . in this.
Major Arnold, during his stay has
made no fewer friends than Col. Fla
gler. They have both been with us
and one of us, aud the friendliness
and appreciation they showed was
appreciated and returned, l no era-
cer in charee has much to do wun
the proportions of the arsenal in the
future, and with Col. lagier at tue
head of the Ordance and Ma. Arnold
In charge here, Columbia can never
complain. -
Gov. Buchanan will submit his
message to the Legislature after the
recess, about'Feb. 23rd. In it he will
recommend a liberal appropriation to
repair the Capitol and save it from
further decay. Upou this matter the
leiriblators seem inclined to be as nig
gardly as the County Court of Maury

Wheras, there is a measure known as
the Federal Election bill now pending

Whereas, the passage of said measure
would be a long stride toward the trans
formation of our American institutions
into a military despotism, only anoth
er being necessary to reach the fearful
culmination toward the overthrow of
our American form ot government the
"best the world ever saw," namely the
empowering of the Presideut of the
United States to declare martial law
wherever bis will might lead him to
make such a declaration; and
P Whereas, the farmer step being taken
the latter would follow as a natural
sequence, leading to the loul consum

Special to the Herald:
Washington, D. C. Jan. 28, 1891.-
Senator Gray made a telling point
against the proposed republican gag
rule, now before the Senate, when he
called attention to the fapt that cloture
was hrst introduced to the Knglish-
sueaking people to assist the tories in
suppressing the Home Rule movement
in Ireland. He said: "It is a signifi
cant fact, pregnant with instruction aud
warning to tue American people, trial
the first time in the history of Kngland
that an attempt was made in the House
of Commons to limit debate. It was made
in order to suppress home rule in Ire
land. Let gentlemen go out aud tell
their naturalized fellow-citizens from
that stricken and unhappy isle that the
mericau Senate is taking a page from
thn hiatorv ot the Kngland parliament.
Cloture was adopted in Kngland in or
der that lrish-uien might be gagged in
the House of Common when they at
tempt to assert that freed on of speech
which belonged to them as representa
tives of their people. Let gentlemen
tell the naturalized citizens that that is
the example they are following in prder
to destroy home rule in this country.
The republicans Drofesa to believe
that the actiou of the legislatures in
some of the Southern states in refusing
to consider bills making appropriations
for ctate exLibits -at the vVonos fair
while the Force bill is jendiug is a
Llull, but it is easy to ea luat it has
(.-reatly disconcerted them, and they are
receiving hundreds of letters every day
from their commercial constituents de
manding that the . Force bill be aban
doned, but they still persist iu going
ahead to their own destruction.
Senator Stewart made another rat
tling speech ou Saturday against both
the gag-rnle and the Force bill, and the
republican Senators squirmed in -their
seats as they listened to his 'words of
truthful condemnation, and vain at
tempts were made by Senators Spoouer,
Mitchell, and Hoar to disconcert him
by asking questions, Jbut he was fully
prepared or them aud. they soon let
him severely alone.
The Confederation ot Industrial Or
ganization, which met here last week
elected Benjamin Terrell of Teas,
President, aud J. W. HayeB, of Penn
sylvania, Secretary and Treasurer. It
also adopted as its national ' platforui
nine demands, the most of which every
good democrat can endorse without
stretching his conscience in the least.
For instance, free coinage, the prohi
bition of aliens owing land, opposition
to using taxation to build up one class
at the expense of another, limiting the
revenues of the Government to its
uecessary expense, state end national
supervision of the means of public com
munication and the election of U. S.
Senators by direct vote of lh people,
and ot President aud Vice President by
a pupular vote.
The confederation tlk no formal ac
tion towards the formation of a new
political party and I do not regard it as
ErQbable that they wilt in the future,
ecaiwd, from talks with the delegates
I a n si t s tied that a great majoiit oi
them believe that the democratic party
will take care of their interests, aud
that they will use their influence to
have all members of Industrial organi
zations support the national democratic
ticket next year.
Speaker Ueed is doing his level best
to gg the democrats of the House, and;
is only prevented t'rouugoiiig to greater
extremes by the absence t f the republi
can quurum. He is trying to railroad
the aporopriattons bills through so as
to have ai-kmr track when the Force
tll( comes over with the Senate amend
incuts, if it ever does. He isn't suc
ceeding very well, and. will pot, unions
he gets that republican quorum anu
kci ps it.
It begins to look as through the silver
pool Investigation would turn out to be
l he u-ual republicau Congressional
farce, and that Senator Cameron, who
has admitted his guilt, would be made
the scape-goat. It is stated, and gen
erally believed here, that Mr. Heed and
other prominent republicans are tistnp
their Influence upon the individual
members of the committee to prevent
their exerting themselves to find out
who has been speculating in ttilver.
There is also talk aboqt some democrats
doing the same thm?. This is all dead
wrong, It true. If any Senator or K-p
resenlatlve, be he high or low, demo
crat or republican, has been speculating
in silver, w hiie bills aflecling the mar
ket price oT that metal were pending,
let him be exposed. The people have a
right to know, and no half way metlio is
on the part l! poiqiuit(ee will satis
fy them. '

. Cuicago, Jan. 27. An evening paper
eays that it is probable that U-en. Miles
will biing from their reservation about
2C 0 Sioux warriors, enlist them in the
United States army, and station them at
Fort Sheridan to be drilled the same as
white enlisted regulars and reserved for
use in possible future Indian wars.
"Gen. Miles has been looking over the
prospect in a general wa3V said CoL
Corbin, "but I do not think he has -yet
evolved the details. He has been think
ing of bringing a couple of companies of
Indians to Fort Sheridan, but bL-foro it
can be done many preliminary arrange

The experiment is said to be favorably
looked on by the war department.

RAPID City, Neb., Jan. 27. An ar
rival from Lower Spring creek to-day
brings the news of an attack
made by a party or Indians upon
the ranch vt Noah Newbanka
shortly after sundown Saturday night.
JSewbanks, his lamily, and three men
who are in his employ had just finished
their tuppeis and were seated in the
room diseu-ing the affairs of the day
when, without a mcment s warning, a
crashing of glass was heard, followed by
the retort ot a nlle.
Securinff their arms Newbants and
his men rushed out of the doors only to
meet another volley front a party ot In
dians who had ' taken a position about
150 yards from the house. Fortunately
none pf the whites wore injured.
They immediately returned the fire,
and the Indians retreated across the
Cheyenne. A vigilant lookout was kept
at the ranch all night, but the Indiana
did not return the attack. rext morn-.
ing the ground was closely examined
and in several places the grass was
found to be stained with blood, ana
from this it is thought some of the In
diana were wounded.
V'Mte Men, Not Indiana, Stole the Cattle.
Tom Hetlnnd and another ranchman
named Thompson, have bern lodged in
jail at Pierre. S. Dak., for stealing cat

Indians. Much of the cattle stealing
west of the- river during the last twq
months had been laid to them,

The Iowa Counterfeiters Not Limited to
the Three Persons First Arrested.
Des Moines, Iowa, Jan, 87. Two more
men were arrested Monday night, charged
with being members of the gang of coun
terfeiters unearthed in this city Satur
day, when the police at that time ar
rested Matt Merritt, his wife and Will
iam Frow, having found at their resi
dence all of a counterfeiter's parapher
nalia, together with a considerable sum
of counterfeit money, it was supposed
they had all who were implicated, but
later developments show that they were
only the ringleaders of an organized
band who have been working all over
Their specialty was the manufacture
of quarter and half dollars, and they were
making a very good article of money.
The money found at the residence in this
city was a great deal better, in the opin
ion of experts, than the average counter
feit. The arrested parties were given a
healing before United States Commis
sioner Jordan Monday afternoon. Ihe
officers are satisfied this gang, when they
get them all under cove.r, will prove to
be the best catch or the season.

To a lady going to Nashville, this
concern is a blessing inueeu.
Hlie can get off the cars at the Union
Depot, take a hack or strettcar ami
go at once to the door of this great
si ore, where a cozy reception-room,
with dressing-room and toilet-room
are at her service. Her baggage ana
b undies may be checked, and she cau
then so wherever she may choose
about the house or the city, without
bei ng encumbered with luggage. JI
tiie weather is bad. and a lady goes
to the city only to shop, she need uot
lea ve the great store at all.
K very sort ot goods iu the greatest
