The Tennessee Miner.

A very kennel it teems,
Tho' a home to such at he.
On a bar, pine table I tee

coarse oorn bread and tea.
To feed this miner of coal. '
In the dusk the father somes;
All day he has been in the mine:
On a remnant, the rich man's crumbs,'
These partners in poverty dine.
The miner's wife Is wan.
And wan the babe that creeps
Out to the man of brawn
From the rags on which it sleeps.
A young lad follows behind
The father; the curse of ihe craft
Is oyer blm, with itt grind:
He early went into the shaft.
No pride of dress has he;
His mind is blunted by toil,
This lad of Tennessee,
For the rioh man's son a folL
The fear of a falling roof,
The dread of choke-damp and lire,
Of serve-strain leave a proof '
Alike on child and tire.
. The jewels that glitter and thine
On he hands of wealth ana power
, Are the crystallized tears of the miner,
The delving poor man's dower.

Itor Hudion Senator lagalU
Topeka. Kan., Dec. 29. Governor
Humphrey, in an interview, stated that
h6 did not think he would appoint
successor to Senator Plnmb before the
end of the week. The governor has
been importuned and harrassed so per
eietently by delegations which urge the
claims of the different candidates that
he is about losing patience,
The claims of J. W. Ady, United
States district attorney for the district
of Kansas, were first presented to the
governor. Ex-Congressman S. R.
Peters of Newton, Kan., backed by fh
entire Seventh congressional district.
made the presentation. He occupied
the governor's time from 3 o'clock until
8 o'clock in the afternoon.
Ex-Consrressman Perkins was fifth on
the governor's list of candidates, but the
. . . .
delegation wmcn is wormng in tne ex
congressman s interest stole a march on
the other candidates and secured a sec
ond hearing. The delegation is from
Humphrey's district, and had simply
called to pay respects to the governor.
They were ten in number, and after
they got into the governor's room thev
took it by storm and the governor with
it. State Senatoi Kirkpatrick made the
nominating speech, and was fol owed by
ouage j. a. west or Bourbon county
ana J. a. Zelgler of Indeimdence. The
governor had announced that onlvoffi
cial office hours would be used in "hear'
ing the clnims of the candidates, and
wnen 4 ociocK arrived he shut up shop
and went home. ' -
Of all the candidates for the aDtxrint-
ment ex-Senator Incalls eniovs the dis
tinction of being the only one who has
no lieutenants on' the ' ground working
for him. In fact, he is not even an
avowed candidate. His friends, how
ever, say he would accept the appoint
ment if it were tendered him. but he
will not go into the scramble for the
honor with the common herd. The ex
senator has nearly all the 'ra-actical"
politicians against him. They"urge that

the . state from the Farmers'
Alliance. But the ex-senator
is not without backing. All
the work that is beta? done in his in
terest, however, is unsolicited and has
the merit of spontaneity. He is unani
mously endorsed by the people of his
own town, Atchison, has an enthusiastic
following from the Grand Army of the
Republic, and is the idol of the young
Republicans of the state. He is also in
a position to be settled upon as a com
promise candidate. He is making no
fight and therefore no enemies.
Another candidate dropped out of tho
race. He is ex-Uovernor Crawford,
who is in Washington. He telegraphed
the governor that he was not a candidate
and urged the appointment of Major J.
