The leaves fade and fall ; men grow old
and die; partiea suddenly spring ap and
rapidly decay ; bat the great Democratic
party, based npon the rock of troth, will
never die. It was born with the govern
ment and will live as long as the republic. '
Indeed, the Democratic party cnnot die
and the nation live. I's principle are the
betterment of mankind, the parity of the
government, jast and eqaal rights to all.
It recognises no religions creed, sect or
class, bat is jast and tolerant to all. Its
vitality is marve'oas. Without office
power and place for twenty-fonr years, its
principles were still imbedded in the
hearts of the people, and it has never
been so strong aa now. This i
because it. is the paity of the
people. The immense domain out of
which new Stales have been carved and
many others are yet to be organized, ad
ding strength and grandeur to the repub
lic, was acquired through the Democratic
party and now it devolves npouthts party
to preserve the lands it his acquired for the
use and benefit of the people. President
Cleveland's administration, aa far aa it has
cone, shows tbti't the Damocrita do not
intend that, the territ' ry acquired by Dem
ocrats, shall be stolen from the peopro.
Tbo closing days of Arthur's adminl-tra-tion
were almost wholly Riven up to the
land grabbers giving them bogus titles
without the shadow of law. While the cat
tle syndicate obtained not lees that 6,000,-
O00 acres of Cherokee lands on fraudclent
leases, the Republican President issued
everal proclamations against Oklahoma
boomers. Under the new administration
cf the Interior Department the same
measure of justice is meted oat to the
poor siaatters and to ths rich Cattle
barona. While the Oklahoma boomers
ar not permi'ted to enter upon the lands
ci the Indians, the caUle-owners, with
their herds, are compelled by the Presi
dent to move off within a certain time,
The fences with wl ich immense tracts of
the landa ol the government have been
inclosed by foreign and domestic catt'e
oinpanits were required to be taken
down, and honest settlers once more ad
mitted to their equal rights in the public
domain. The most stolid partisans must
confess, when thtir attention la directed
to these things, that a great and beneficent
change has taken place in the administr&
t'.on of the laws relating to the public
ianda. On the subject of land grants the
Democratic administration will be
equally as vigilant in preserving
the public domain for the use
and occupancy ci the peop'.s. Congrees at
its last seeeion passed one or two forfeiture
1 411a in respect to the unearned ,'acd
grants. The ntw Congress will have
much more of ths same kind of work to
do. The Democratic party will see to it
that the public domain is restored to the
pe:ple who own it. Ox one of the tcr-
faitare bills of the last session the Senate,
w ith its Republican msj "rity, contrived to
tag on a provision that the lands thus to
f ?ited bhould not bs thrown op6n to actual
settlers until the ejectsd railroad corpora'
tines shall have had ample tima and op
portunity to- litigate tbelt claims in the
United States Circuit Court, and in the
Supreme Court, if they see fit to make
the appeal. Whatever may have been the
intention of the amendment, it

whether it succeeds or not. The cocs'ant
agitation of the question can do no harm,
and now that the Interior Department
has been cleared of the rascals who in
listed it, the cause of the people has a
greater prospect of success than has at
tended it for years. The claims, palpably

So much has capital increased in this
country that many instances have oc
curred of larye sums being sent to En-
rope because either no employment couM
h found for it here, or higher interest
could be found for it on the other side of
the ocean. The New York Indicator of
December 20th informs us that "money
has been accumulated which heretnfnrn
it has been the custom to keep employed.
Ever since early in July, 1884, the da
posits have been in exceea ol the loan,
and for a year the excess of iepoeits has
been from $40,000,000 to $80,000,000. Tl e
excess is now over $40,000,000." In July
tast the deposits were 180,000,000 more
than the loans that is lo say that amour t
was lying idle and unproductive. All
this means that we have more capital
than the country is employing. There la
another excess. If we set all our labor to
fall werl:, and employ all our machinery,
tools, shops and manufactures to their ex
tent, a large proportion of the product,
like the capital idle in the banks, could
not be disposed of. We own more capi
tal than we can employ, and
cai produce more merchandise than
we have requirements for. When a vee-

no country is better situated in that re
spect. Central and South America and
Mexico are populated by peoples who
have little manufactures, while they are
rich in natural products. We want their
trade to relieve us of onr products, and
we want their prcducts as raw material
for onr manufactures. Our Implement,
machinery, fabrics, furniture, or bnttrr,
lard, cheese, flour, and an interminable
list of other articles wonld find a market,

"A writer in the Vicksbnrg Planter'
Journal is of opinion that the cotton grow
ers are enduring a great annual loss npon
the bagging with which their cotton bales
re covered, and suggests a mode of escap
ing that loss. lie ahows that the South
pays immense sums every year for jute
bagging to India and to British merchants.
This bagging, as is well known, is a dead
loss to the cotton grower, tor when the
bale is sold in Liverpool a deduction is
made for the weight of the bagging and
ties, and the seller gets nothing for them.
This ia done because those articles are
yalnelees, one beiDg old jrop, the other
seless for any purpose. What ia wanted,
therefore, is to substitute something that
shall be of value when stripped frohi the
bale. As far as the bagging
goes, says the writer, this can be
done. Each bale has seven yards
of bagging, or for a six-million crop, forty
two million yards, which, at twelve and a
half cents a yard, amounts to $3,250,000;
for this if cotton 'cloth were used the con
tents of the bale would be better preserved
from dost and dirt, and the material
would be available in manufacture. It
would make sacks for grain, coarse cloth
ing for laborers, fails for small vessels,
cloth for tenia and many other purposes,
and the torn and the refuse would be
available for paper stock. This material
would use np millions of pounds of Amer
ican cotton, and it Wonld be manufactured
in Southern Motion-mills, a much better
arrangement than buying -jute bagging
from abroad. The projector of this plaa (
estimates that six pounds of eoUon, cost
ing forty-eight cent's would offset jute at
twelve and ft half cents a yard, costing
eighty-tour cents for each bale. The uro.
jeet ia worth thinking about.
fail KAW HATEKf AV.
A demand ia beeomios; common that
raw materiel for taanfturing 'shall be
allowed to enfrr the United States free of
protective duties. There are manv who
ilo not understand the reason of this de
mand, bnt it is desirable that all should do
so. In Ejgland millions npon millions
have been added to the wealth of the
country by admitting cotton as an untaxed
raw material. By manufacturing that ma
terial into fabrics the English have gained
a million times over what a tax npon the
material would Lave yielded directly or
indirectly. SflppWe the English wool
growers had objected, aa they had good
reason to do, that cheap cotton would
damage the home wool trade, and coltott
had been heavily texed in their hrtor, we
all know that what would have been
gained by the Wool trade would have borne
no appreciable proportion to the immense
i6ahh the cotton manufacture of a
foreign untaxed material has yielded. The
question we have to consider is, therefore,
whether we cannot gain more l)y admit
ting raw material free than by excluding
it in favor o? some smaller trade of our
own material ?. For instance, we make so
much annually by growing sugar under
the protection of a very heavy tax. Sup
pose that we abolished all tax and admit
ted sugar free as a raw material, and our
refiners were able to put their product of
marketable sugars on every 6hore, better
in quality and cheaper in price than any
other country coald do, would not the im
mense profits thusgcined be far better for
the prosperity of the United Ptsites than
any trivial gain the little sugar cultivation
in Louisiana brings us? By freeing
raw materials we may damage some
business we now carry on by
artificial support, but ought net
that to be submitted to if a trade bring
ing hundred of tithes as much were to
arise in its place? No man in hEs ord bary
business would heitate to make the
change under such c rcuoistances. True,
men whose business would suffer would
object to the free admission of raw ma
terial, and acknowledge that their bus ness
was not a paying oUe and they depended
upon protective taxation for a living, but
sensible citiasna wonld Say let na have a
business that will pay, and pay well, ia
preference to one that instead ol bringing
wealth into the Country lives only by tax
ing the country's wealth.
A PERPLIXINU PBaBLEN-.
The Government Commi-eiohercf Labor
Statistics, in hi. annuli report, finds before
!m whtheca!li"a perplexing problem."
Tha't problem concerns the introduction
ui low-priced foreign labor competing
with American labor. The Chinese, the
French Canadian and the lnnan immi
grants are prominent instances of immi
grants who work for little and live on less;
whose habits are mainly tonaanitary, while
their subserviency to the requirements of
their employers and the low pay they ac-
cept are seriously threatening the interests
of the American ltborer, reducing his
comforts, destroying his independence aid
degrading his social position. The
Italian immigration, the Commis
sioner apprehends, will prove es-.
pecially baleful to the America!
woikman. The "Chinese question," wi
see by this, 'is going beyond the Chinte
aild extending to other nationalities, aafit
must do if the objections made to tpe
Chinese apply also to them i but where; ft
the line to be drawn between the accepta
ble and the objectionable immigrants?
The products of foreign labor are tied
professedly to sustain American wges,
but the foreign labor itself, that wars
against American labor, ia untaxed. If
taxation to support wages is imposed, how
can any logical objection be snsiained
against excluding or limiting the intro
duction of foreign labor itself? That
matters wculd come to this poUf under
the protection system is what we avo al
ways expected; it is a necessary and una
voidable detail of the System. Bow can
we tax the products of foreign labor
and retain free trade in tbe laftor itself?
This contributes "a perplexing problem"
that will puttie more heads than that if
the commissioner, and bafil'the monop
olists who want taxation on' products to
relieve them from competition in their
business, and also want the power to im
port foreign labor at will for the purpose
of reducing wages, that their own pro Ira
may be increased. It appears likely that
the protectionists will be divided into two
parties one in favor ol free trade in for
eign labor ; the other desirous of protec
tion against foreign labor.

Am Cmasen Inaprraslon Canned by a
aeceal Sapreue Court aveelalon.
Washington, December 29. The Pen
sion Bureau is in receipt of thousands of
letters from all parts cf the countiy indi
cating the existence of a widespread but
erroneous imprenion that the recent de
cision of the isnpreme Court in tbe case of
Mrs. Uattie A. Burnett vs. the United
States would bring about an almost total
change in the rates of penrioi.s allowed to
widowa of soldiers of the late war. The
decision, aa rendered by Justice Harlan,
on the contrary, snstains the practice of
the Pension Office. Mrs. Burnett's hus
band, Gen. Ward U.Burnett, was allowed
a pension of $72 a month by a special act
of Congress on aixount of his tota ly help
lees condition, daa to wounds received
daring the Mexican war. The widow was
allowed a pension in accordance with the
provisions of the general law. 8b, bow
ever, appealed to tho Court of Claims,
claiming the same amount per month her
husband had received. That court in its
decision used this language: "The widow
becomes entitled to a pension, not neces
sarily at the same rate her husband
was entitled to, but at the rate he
would have been entitled to if his
claim were founded upon what in the
pension law is technically called 'total
disability.' The degree of disability by
which his pension was rated makes no
difference with the widow's right. After
death all degrees of disability are consid
ered by law as one and tbe same, namely,
'total disability,' and the rate -of pension
given to that grade becomes the rate of
pension for the widow. The pensions of
living soldiers are graded according to
their respective incapacity to perform
manual labor. When the disability is
total $30 a month is given as an equiva
lent. A pension of $30 a month, the sup
posed equivalent for total disability, is,
therefore, granted the widow."
The decision of the United States Su
preme Court, which has been so much
misunderstood, simply, as before staled,
affirms the judgment of the Court of
Claims, and the long-established practice
of the Pension Bureau has thereby re
ceived the sanction of the highest triba
nal in the land.

after the recess providing for the raising
of a body of troops for the special pur
pose of hunting, and, if necessary, exter
minating the murderous bands which
having been making that region a desert,
l'hey propose that these troops shall con
sist exclusively of frontiersmen, and be
placed under the command army c ul
cers; that they shall b temporarily en
liBted for the spec!' service, equipped,
mounted anJ provided for in such a way
is to be at-e o f illow and fight the sav
ages in their fastnesses.
During tbe progress of the conversa
tion, which lasted an hour, allusion wes
made to Gen. Crook's record. Mr. Spring
er rea I to the secretary a letter he had
received from Judge Barnes of the First
Judicial District of Arizona, discussing the
situation, and setting forth the views of
intelligent men of the locality to the
best remedy. This, in brief, wes for the
eovernment to ia se a bat lion ol iron-
tieraraau, be lihtly equipped, whose
ilutv it suould be ti patrol the region in
small parti' . It was possible for the In
dians to move more rapidly than white
troops could, by riding the poni'i until
they dropped from exhaustion, and then
stealing others, bnt they must reach the
watering place i from time to time, or
perish themselvis. Judge Barnes also
proposed tbe arming and enlistment of a
body of Papago Indians, a friendly, indus
trious race, who are as much annoyed by
the renegade Apaches as are tee whites, to
bulit the enemv.
The Secretary said, in reference to this
plan, that the army was already doing
much of the service proposed. Geo. Sher
idan had been sent out to the scene of the
disturbances, and Gen. Crook, in whom
thev all had confidence, was in command.
If these could not subdue the hostiles,
Mr. SDrintrer said be did not know Gen
Crook and had nothing against him, but
iudaing him merely by results he was a
tailure. The renegades did not number
more than 200 men, and Uen. L-roox, with
3300 or 4000 men at command, bad been
hunting them for years and had not suc
ceeded in putting a stop to the outrages.
Senator Manderson came to Gen.
Crook's def onse. attributing lo his skill
and ability the pacification of the Indians

Mr. Gladstone has requested the trees

were accompanied by the most touching
expressions of regard and affection. Mr.
Gladstone says it would be absolutely im
possible for him to acknowledge personally
the many friendly communications and

fore desires to express his gratification
through the medium of the press.
.Among the congratulatory telegrams re

Tne Irian Home Bale Question.
London, December 29. A circular was
recently sent to all the Liberal members
of the new Parliament asking them to
state their opinions on the Irish home rule
question. In their replies most of the
members avoid explicit statements, but
tbe majority of those who express a defi
nite opinion ere opposed to giving an Irish
Parliament the control of the tariffs, and
of the police, and are in favor of confin
ing the legislative powers of such Parlia
ment to matters of Leal government, the
same as in Great Britain. A number of
the members insist that tbe unity of the
empire must overlap all efforts to concil

the replies show tbat it is hopeless to ex

ceptable to the Parnellites. Mr. Glad

rcOBatSPONDINCE OF TBS APPEAL.1
Rives, Tenn.. December 29. While 1
am waiting here for the Louisville train I
have concluded to give you a few items of
news. The farmers in this section have
enjoyed remarkably fine weather for get
ting out their crops, and this is the great
grain crop region of West Tennessee, av
eraging nearly forty bushels of corn to the
acre over tbe whole county (Obion), and
wheat in tbe same proportion. Ihe re
markable feature about this county is its
abundance of fine timber of all kinds.
There are not 1G0 acres of unproductive
land in this county or, rather, there will
not be when tbe bottoms are cleared and
drained, as they will be before many
years. It is from this county that Mem
phis will get the gravel for her streets, and
Shelby county for her loads. There are
millions ct tons of it one mile west of
Troy, or eight miles from this place, on
the line of the proi-cted Troy and iipton-
ville railroad. 1 his is rapidly becoming a
stock raising county, and well it may be,
for it is a floe grans county, equal to the
best counties in Middle Tennessee.
There are several candidates for circuit
judge in this district Aden of Henry,
Sniggert cf Obion and some others whom
1 uu nut now leineiuOer.
John B. Bond of Brownsville, a most
excellent man as well as lawyer, is a can
d'date for attorney-general of this circuit.
Jndge John Soniers and Judge Henry
Livingatcn are sail to be candidates for
McFarland of Humboldt, Pierce of
Union City, Caldwell cf Gardner and
Glass of Ripley are probable candidates
for Congress. I think they will all be for
the Blair educational bill. The people
generally are tor tbat measure.
I am inclined to think yonr suggestions
will be carried out, an.l nothing be said in
the Democratic State Convention about
railroad regulation. The people had
enough of tbat in the last canvass at
least for the present.
The unexpected failure ot Cecil, at
Union City, for such a largo amount haa
created quite a sensation in these parts.
Such delightful weather during the
Christmas holidays has not been Been

The Only Questions Which Co a gr ess Has
a Right to Consider ia the
Washington, December 29. In speak-
ing to-aay oi recent occurrences in xss-
kota. Judge Holman of Indiana said that
he thought the time had probably come
when it was right that Dakota shonld be
admitted as s State, The House had no
right to rwosider the political bearings ol
the ease. The only questions that oo
orred to his mind were whether the pop
ulation was sufficiently settled and perma
nent to make it better for them to be un
der a State form of government, whether
the school lands could be sufficiently se
cured, asd the question o! the government
interests in the reservations. The govern
ment has immense interests in the Terri
tory in the extensive Sioux reservation
and it was nndoubtedly true that these in
terests could be better looked to nnder a
Territorial than a State government, but
this last, he thought, was not sufficient
for Rtrcsuta ADkiesioai. -The
trouble is, he said, when Territories
spring up so rapidly that the people do
not become suihciently settled at once,
their interests do not become so closely
connected with the Territory as to make
them always so anxious for its well being,
as should be the case. Before they were
given the control of the affairs of the
country, it shonld be solidly enough es
tablished to be safe from tbe selfish action
of speculators, sharpers and adventurers,
whose only purpose would be to get per
sonal gain. The public lands, the school
lands, must be protected) and the matter
of land grants carefully guarded. These,
he thought, were tbe proper questions to
be considered whenever any Territory
Bought admission into the Union, and
these were the only things to be taken into
consideration with relation to Dakota. The
Territory must be soon admitted. It most
come as one State, however. The whole
territory should properly come in to
gether. Its geography and the character
of the land required this, and it would be
tbe only way it would be admitted, a
NOT BE PRACTICABLE.
Rome parts of the Territory were neces
sarily sparsely settled on account of the
pastoral character ot sections, while
others were more densely populous and
the ground better suited to agricultural
pursuits. Tbe Territory coming into tbe
Union as It now is would, as a whole, bal
ance tbe geography of the country. It
ould balance Texas and form the points
of a triangle with it and JSew York. Ihe
Eeople of Dakota were not all agreed,
owever. Some of the farmers were not
sure that they wanted to come into the
condition of a State iutt now. All that
must be considered. He did not think the
recent action of the people in going
through the form of electing a Legislature.
etc., would have any effect on Congress.
Letters received lrom people in Dakota
indicated tbat the people did not atta h
any grave importance to this act.
