The Georgia Legislature has refused to
pay the espense of the funeral ol the la'e
Governor Stephens. An Atlanta paper says i
Reiving on the devollnn uilh which the lale
Governor served the S'ate and the fact that
he died while in an official position and with-
out an immediate fatuity the State house
officers and citUens of Atlanta went to con
siderable expense in giving him fitting burial.
Over so military companies were In line at
the funeral and the coffin was of the same
pattern as that In which President Gaificld
s bulled. The bill for the pstment ol these
expenses has beenhanglng fire fortwo months
the Legislators hlfgling over ihc bills of
musicians and undertakers until it hss grown
into a public scandal. Yesterday the House
sat down on the whole affair leaving the
commiltess and private Individuals to foot the
Recently In General Schofield's division
man who deerted from the army eight years
ago was arrested and tried for that ofiense.
The Courtmaitial sentenced him to three years
in the military prison at Fort Leavenworth.
General Schofield disapproved the findings of
the Courtmartlal on the ground that the de-
sertion came within those offenses mentioned
In one of the articles of war as Ispslng when
two years have Intervened between the com-
mittal and arrest. General Drum says the
Washington Critic has written a letter to
General Schofield on this question n which
he called the attention of that officer to the
(act that ever since Mr. Cameron was Secre-
tiry of war It had been the practice of the de-
partment to regard desertion as a continuous
ofTense always punishable and this action of
General Drum is regarded as settling a ques-
tion about which there has been a good deal
of discussion in the army.
The reports of race troubles between
whites and blacks over about Marshall are
very conflicting and quite uncertain. On
Saturday night a negro named Johnson was
taken from his home and family by a party of
men and on Sunday morning his body was
found about a half mile from Marshall with
three bullet holes in it and a rope around the
neck. lie was said to be a bad man and a
troublesome character but beyond that no
other specific charge or crime was brought
agiinst him. Certain parties who profess to
know predict that serious trouble will begin
on the 1st of October all along the line from
Mineola to Shrevcport. Such statement of
course is simply stulT and is made by parties
who are worse than agitators. All this talk
about race troubles has been unnecessary
foolish and sinful and the question of a con
flict Is one that is buried In the past. Hot
hraded and pot-valiant men on both sides
coutd precipitate a difficulty that would simply
be a massacre and barring the widows and
orphtns occasioned by It would settle noth
ing and accompliih nothing A little reason
d common sense on the part of the officials
in the counties where these troubles are sup-
posed to exist could have settled the matter
atUfactorlly and completely weeks ago. The
id-a f a conflict Is absurd and fl o)ih and
eflects directlv acainst the cuardlans of the
Father Columbia's Paper the organ of the
Butler bonm for President and Reagan for
Vice President says: "John II Reagan of
Texas is nominsted for the office of Vice
President because he is the broadest browed
best balanced clearest headed most aggres
sive unflinching and practical anli-monopo-list
that has as yet appeared In Congress and
as presiding officer in the Senate of the United
States would be the safest guardian of labor's
rights as affected by the action of that body
nd the most efficient co-operator with the
President. These men Butler and Reagan
represent the two extremes of sectional rancor
in the nation in the unpleasant heretofore
which must be driven from mind and sight
and covered with mantles of forgiving charity
and where is to be found real forgetfulness
of Butler in the South if Mr. Davis's Post
master General be not awarded the same
measure ol kindliness In the North."
Tilden llolman Hancock and the balance
of the Democratic patriots had better give
their little booms an airing or- Widow Butler
will bamboorle the party and get away with
It and the nomination. The public at large
msy look upon llutler's candidacy as a huge
burlesque but there Is no doubt but what
he will Individually bend ail his energies to
the accomplishment of that object and "die a
tryiog." The author of the "Coming Crown"
In "'84 a Political Revelation" predicts
Butler's nomination by the Democrats and it
Is such refreshing reading that we give his
closing sentences in the following which may
be more of a prediction thin Its author antici-
pated: The Chair: "Benjamin F. Butler having re-
ceived a majority of all the votes cast Is there-
fore the nominee of the Democratic party
for President of the United States."
"Springing to his feet Henry Wat-
terson moved to make the nomination unan-
imous and in a ringing speech pledged the
Kentucky Democracy to stand by the 'Savior
of Massachusetts.' Let It not be said and I
am sure as a Southern man there will be no
cause to say it that any delegate honored by
the Demorracy of a Southern State disgraced
himself and his party by refusing loyal support
to the man nominated fir President by the
Democracy of the Union. I can say now
that the struggle is ended that we have noml-
nated a candidate who if elected who when
elected as he will be-will take his seat and
the remainder the sentence was lost In the
burst of applause that followed."
