Ben Butler says that though the Confed

As the time draws near for the Minneapo
lis Convention it becomes more probable that
Mr. Powderly will be indorsed by a very
large majority of the 250 delegates. The
opposition manifested to him is confined ni

(Socialists are strong. He has no use for
them or their doctrines, and they naturally
want to get rid of him. In the opinion of
the public, as well as of the Knights of

place he holds than any man in the order.

Of the hatred once existing between the
North and South, grow ing out of the war
and the long political contest preceding it,
hardly a vestige remains. In this part of
the country at least it would tie hard to
find a man who would not be ashamed to
acknowledge that any paid of it remained
in him. On the frequent public occasions
when v eterans of the old armies which op
posed each other in the field have met, the
display of friendliness has been almost as
great as if they had been comrades of one
army. This is all well and proper. It in
dicates the. state of feeling which really ex
ists, and is therefore honest.
At the reunion of the blue and gray
which took place last week at Evansville,
Ind.. the feeling manifested was the same
which has so often been shown whensnialler
numbers of the old combatants met. The
men were no longer enemies, but friends.
A number of distinguished officers of both
the Federal and Confederate armies were
present and letters were read from others,
in reply to invitations to take part in the
reunion. Two of these letters, one from Gen.
Gordon and the other from Senator Cul- j
lorn, were printed in the last issue of the
Morning News, and it is to the contrasting
sentiment of these letters that attention is
directed. Gen. Gordon writes in the hearty,
enthusiastic strain which is natural
to him. There is nothing, in his
esteem, so much to be desired as a complete
reunion of tiie once warring elements, and
that they be welded together into a “com
mon brotherhood as sacred as truth and as
enduring as time.”
Senator Cnlloni does not write in this
strain. He remembers that he is a Repub
lican office-holder, and that his party yet
relies’upon the old sectional feeling as the
main source of its strength. He is careful
to use the term “rebel” in his opening sen
tence, when the managers of the reunion,
some of them as faithful Federal soldiers as
himself, had avoided doing so. The men
to whom the epithet was applied
were probably not offended, because
it has so long been misused that
it has lost its meaning. The
Senator then goes on in a guarded and
qualified way to express his approbation of
movements to make our nation a union of
hearts and of hands, as well as of States—
provided it can be done without sacrificing
any principle for which the Union armies
fought, and with a proper display of grati
tude toward Union veterans*. Nobody can
object to the Senator’s provisos. Southern
people no longer believe they have a right
to hold slaves, nor that their States can
secede from the Union for any cause. They
know that these questions were settled irre
vocably- by the war. They are satisfied with
the settlement, and would not change it if
they could. So much for the principles for
which the Union soldiers fought.
As for gratitudp to those soldiers,
it cannot bo said that Southern jieople enter
tain any great amount of it. Really, it
can hardly be expected under the circum
stances. But they do not cherish any en
mity toward them, and recognizing the
fact that a great deal of gratitude and cash
were due them from the nation for the,
thorough performance of a very big job, in
lieu of the gratitude, they helped to vote
them the most liberal pensions the world
ever knew of. The old soldiers were proba
bly satisfied with the cash. Beiug again
a part of the nation, ex Confederates were
willing to hear their share of its burdens,
whether they got any of the benefits of the
money voted away or not.
In view of tbeso facts it must be painful
to patriotic Republicans who really- love
their whole country and not merely a part
of it, to be forced by party exigencies to
maintain a strained attitude of suspicion
and to be constantly- making preparations
to lieat off an enemy when there is no
The bitterness between the old combatants,
as has been said, lias almost disappeared,
but the Republicans, by diligent endeavors,
have kept alive enough suspicion
in the North of all things Southern
to be of very considerable influence on elec
tion days. They have, however, been
obliged to pay a heavy price for this ele
ment of strength. It has made their party-in
ideas, as in locality, a sectional party. It can
be fairly said that when tho average Re
publican says National lie means Northern,
while ill the mouth of a Democrat tho word
retains its proper meaning.
The State’s Railroad Property.
Tiie special committee of the Legislature
appointed to investigate the property of the
State road has made a very full report.
The facts which it ascertained, and the
recommendations it bases upon them, are
very interesting. The nine acres owned by
tiie State in Chattanooga and Chickamauga
are estimated to he worth $1,050,000, ami
upon this property the lessees of the State
road have paid taxes to the amount of S9O,
(idO 55. The committee recommends that
the land in Chattanooga be divided into
small lots and sold, and in the event it is
not considered wise to sell the road, that it
be leased for a jieriod of
fifty years. Another recommendation
is that a competent commission be
appointed to make an inventory of the
property of the road. Those are tho more
important points of the report.
As to the wisdom of the last recommen
dation there can hardly be any question. A
trustworthy inventory will lie absolutely
necessary when tiie final settlement with the
lessees is made, and it should lie made by
agents of the State's selection, without any
great loss of time.
If the estimated value of the real estate
in Chattanooga can be realized, such part
of it as is not necessary for the uses of the
road should be sold. The value put upon it
is large, and it is not probable that much
more would bo obtained by waitiug longer.
The State is not ill tho land speculating
business, and if the property is non-produc
tive and useless to her it hud better bo sold
aud t he proceeds applied to the debt.
The recommendation that in certain events
a lease fpr fifty years be entered into is
probably made with the idea thut a better
price can be obtained if the contract lie for
so long a poriod than would lx- possible for
a shorter time. This idea is no doubt well
founded. A long lease would also more
completely remove a disturbing element
from [tolitics, if the property should be
well managed aud the lent promptly paid.
The Legislature has manifested a disposi
tion to shift u|Kin its successor the duty of
dealing with the important question of dis
[Mising by sale or lease of tiie Htato's rail
road property, and is |M-rhaps justified in its
hesitancy by the fact that there has been

to believe that if the question I* thoroughly

THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2t>, 1887.
Trade ■with Central America.
In the last number of consular reports is
a short article on the trade anti resources of
Salvador, written by Mr. DuPre, United
States Consul at Kan Salvador. The general
tone of the article is hopeful, and the writer
seems to think a trado valuable to the
United States may in the future be devel
oped in the exchange of machinery and cot
ton manufactures for sugar, tobacco, cocoa,
coffee, etc. These productions are very
cheap in Salvador.
Mr. DuPre fluds, however, that the com
merce of the country is now almost wholly
in the hands of tho English and Ger
mans. and he gives the reasons in very few
lines. American goods, though much bet
ter than English or German, are so much
higher that they- cannot compete with them
for the custom of people who are poor, and
with whom ready money is scarce. They
must buy what they can pay for. In addi
tion to this, and of equal importance, is
the fact that the articles which Salvador
has for export all enter England without
paying duty, while at every American
custom house most of them are taxed
heavily. This works against the American
In spite of these disadvantages, San Fran
cisco merchants are endeavoring to estab
lish a trade with Salvador, and to somo ex
tent have succeeded, a largo part of the
coffee crop of that country coming to San
Francisco for a market.
Tiie trade of the Central and South
American countries belongs naturally to
the United States These countries, rich
in natural resources, have not advanced in
prosperity as fast as they should, mainly tie
cause they have had no settled governments.
But they are improving in this respect, and
before many years their trade will be very
valuable. It will be our own fault if wo
dam up the natural channels of commerce
aud permit Europe to furnish tho iron for
the railroads which will be built, the imple
ments for an improved agriculture, and all
of the thousand and one articles which will
be demanded by a pooplo beginning anew
Dynamite and Ironclads.
On the day of Lieut. Zalinski’s successful
public test of the [lowers of his pneumatic
dynamite gun there was launched in Eng
land the greatest war vessel yet built. She
displaces almost 12,000 tons of water, is
banded with nearly two feet of steel, and
her armament will be proportionately
powerful. It will be a singular coincidence
if it shall hereafter prove that the greatest
war ship ever constructed went into the
water on the very day of the first actual ex
periment with the instrument which is to
make her useless.
That the dynamite gun may make the
ironclad useless Is by no means improbable.
Its present range is only aliout a mile and a
half, but improvement will no doubt speedi
ly double that. Twenty-five years ago the
effective range of the powder gun was less
than four miles, while now a shell can be
thrown eight or nine. In firing at so small
an object as a ship, however, at anything
like the extreme range of her guns, a vessel
might exhaust the contents of her shot
room without hitting her, and prob
ably would do so. For this reason a vessel
armed with dynamite guns, with a range
much less than the powder guns of an ad
versary, would be at little disadvantage for
that reason, if she were swift and strongly
armored, and the superior destructive
jiower of her shells at a shorter distance
might decide the battle in her favor.
An enterprise is reported from Philadel
phia which may have far-reaching results.
A company has been organizod to buy out
one of the gas companies which is now sup
plying the city, for the purpose of putting
in operation a newly discovered procoss by
which gas can be furnished for all manu
facturing and heating purposes at one-half
tho cost of coal. It has already been tried
at the works of Disston & Sons, at Tacony,
and the fact demonstrated that gas can lie
produced at the cost narnec. If the claims
of the company prove to be well founded
their process must lead V at changes in
luauy industries. The - t advantage
Pittsburg enjoys in the posses ion of natural
gas will not then ln insurmountable by com
petition in other citiec.

It seems to be a settled thing that Mr.

The head of the Socialistic Labor party in
Chicago says that within two weeks be

who have of late years flocked to this coun
try, and it will be a matter of congratula
tion if they separate themselves from the
old political [mnios. Within either party

Where Responsibility for the Surplus
F Vow the Poston Globe (Pern.)
By a stupendous act of folly, if not of collu
sion with the money kings of Wall street, the
Republican financiers of the refunding days at
tached to the new bonds an utterly needless
guaranty that they should not be redeemed for
twenty years. It is this guaranty that now
stands in the government's way. But for this
toe Treasury could relieve the stringency of the
money market at once by merely calling bonds
aud redeeming them at j>ar without premium

Tbfe Spider’s Fatal Mistake.
Front the Albany Journal.
A small garden spider had spun his web in a
corner where a perpendicular column and a
horizontal rail met, and from the ambush of a
hidden crack awaited his dipterous prey. A
handsome yellow wasp passing that way espied
the graceful trap and made for it. Setting his
feet lightly on two or three of the meshes, he
started up a great buzzing, which shook the web
from end to end. The watchful spider ran out
a little way, stretched forth a delicate foot to
make sure of the location of the supposed lly,
and then rushed for it, alighting on the wasp
with a gleeful jump and no doubt a grin of hide
ous triumph. But Mr. Spider had reckoned
without his ho? t. Like a flash of lightning the
wasp’s six nimble legs closed upon him, the
graceful body bent, nearly double, and once,

Han Yu and the Alligators.
From the North China Herald.
The legend of St. Patrick banishing the ver
min from Ireland has its analogue in China, ac
cording to M. Fauvel. In the works of llau
Weri-kung, who flourished something more than
1,000 yean? ago, it is mentioned that a states
man called Han Yu was banished to Kuangtung
ami appointed Governor of the semi-barbarous
district of Chao Chou. When he arrived there
the people complained to him that ttieir flocks
and nerds were being destroyed and themselves
ruined by the ravages of a quality of alligators,
Ngo, which lived in a lake not far from Cliao
Han Yu went to the lake and ordered a pig
and sheep to be thrown to the Ngo, and when
they were assembled ho made them a speech
and said: "Under former rulers you have been
allow ed to remain here, but under the reign of
our virtuous emperor you can not lie tolerated
and you must leave his empire. At the south
of this place is an immense sea, in which fishes
as large as whales, as well as those as small as
shrimps and sprats, can live in peace. You can
easily go there in a dav, but I give you from
three to seven days to go. If after that period
you are still found here, I shall be compelled to
bring w ith me some good archers with strong
bows and poisoned arrows and declare against
you a merciless war,” In the afternoon of that
day a violent storm arose, with thunder and
lightning, which lasted some days, driving the
waters sixty li eastward, so that the lake be
came dry and no alligators hare ever been seen
On the native maps of the Canton province a
small lake is marked 110 miles west of Chao

English View of the American Father
From the Life.
The American father has not yet reached that
point of civilization which recognizes the need
of settlements. He prefers keeping his cash in
bis own hands for speculation or investment,
and although he will sometimes give a hand
some allowance, he seldom will guarantee even
that. There is a well-known English nobleman
who married the daughter of a New York stock
broker, and had a valuable house in that city
settled on his wife, which for a while gave a
rental of £2,000 a year. But values fluctuate
greatly in all new countries, and the house in
question greatly depreciated before long. Again,
f remember the younger son of a peer, who had
the happiness to win the affection of the beau
tiful daughter of another New York stock
broker, but who was deterred from matrimony
for a long time, because although I‘the old man' •
offered a handsome allowance, he wouldn’t ac
tually make a settlement. As "the old man"
wasagre>t speculator, his would-be son-in-law
apprehended that a regular "bust up" might not
improbably supervene and leave him with a wife
accustomed to si>end £I.OOO a year on her dress
unendowed, He represented this strongly, but
The fact is, that the American grudges tying
up money indefinitely at a low rate of interest.
He will often give his daughter a house, furnish
it. and send her a handsome check when a child
is born, but he holds that a man ought to keep
his wife A young lady’s splendid dress at a
watering-place and her parents' brave show

to "shell out” to a son-in law Very few of tne
American girls who have married Englishmen
have had fortunes, while many have had next to
A Horse Jockey’s Reasons for Pulling
a Horse in a Place.
From the Chicago Inter-Ocean.
The truth of the old adage, “Give a dog a bad
name and you might as well hang him at once,”
has never been better illustrated than in a race.
Several years ago Nick Becker. now the owner
of Glen Fisher, Hottentot. Leland. and others,
was ruled off the track at Louisville for the put
iug of his horse Mcßowling in a race over tha.
track, and the reputation that he then acquired
has since stuck to hint “like a bmder.” There
are even some people nowadays mean enough to
say that Nick isn't as straight os a string, but o
course that's ail a mistake, and his horses run
in and out for the reason that you can't always
get the same sort of oats to feed them with.
This spring, as Col. >l. Lewis Clark was enter
taining a party of turf reporters in the cozy
little club house at Louisville. he told the follow
ing story on Nick in connection with the
Mcßowling affair. After explaining how Mc-
Bowling was nulled, he said:
"I called Nick into the stand and the first
question that I asked him was:
“ 'Now, Nick, tell me the truth, how much did
you get for pulling Mcßowling*'
“.'Veil, Col. Clark, you van a goot frent of mine.
If I vin 1 only get tree huntert tollar, ef I lose I
get trie: huntert mid fefty. Vat could I do?
Say, vat vould you do?’
“The last question was almost too much for
me,” said the Colonel, “and I nearly laughed
out in bis face."
After Nick had been ruled off he said to an ac

Mra. Swellby’s Fly Party.
From the Boston Transcriot.
There is nothing like a woman's ready ir.ge
nuity to conquer a social dilemma The Bwellbys,
who belong to the most elegant circle out at
Brookshury, lately completed their new house,
and proposed to celebrate their return from the
seaside and t heir occupancy of their new man
sion by a little house-warming party not a
grand reception, of course, widen would have
been quite out of the question at this season -
but a cheery little dancing party to some of
their friends and nearly all of their neighbors,
including some js-ople who scarcely belong to
the grand monde of Brookshury,* and could
hardly have been Invited to a grand reception
given by such fashionable people as the Swell
bys, but whom it was well enough to conciliate
by a little social attention. There was delay in
the putting of the finishing touches upon‘the
house, as there always is, and the important de
tail of oiling and waxing the floors of the parlors
was unfortunately left to the last moment. It
wns completed only the very day of the party.
And what was the Swellhys' horror, on entering
MM room late in the afternoon, to find that, nl
though the ap)>earanee of t hese magnificent
apartments was everything that could be de

Mrs. Sweliby was in despair. “Dancing will
