FAIRFIELD HERALD i

Wedoesday Morning Mnrch I 1876
The rates of pobtage on third-olass
mail matter is doubled. Postage
on newspapers and books is doubled.
This is a piece of congressional stu
pidity in being gulled by Hamlin's
rapoality. Ho rushed the bill
through during the last hours of the
Senator Robertson has contradict.
el the report that he withdrew from
the republican caucus. lie voted for
Ktllogg. We take back what we
said the other day on this subject.
B3y the way an attempt was made
in W.ashington a few nights since to
steal the Senatoilo three thousand
dollar horses, it failed.
Senator Robertson and Senator
Christianey, of Michigan, retired
from the republican caucus which had
decided to recognize Kellogg. Sena
tor Robertson is a conservative ropub.
lican, and is too closely associated
with the real Interests of of the South
to advocatu her ruin for partizan suo
cess. lie is about the only Southern
republican congressman that has ever
been of any service to his section, and
lis commanded the respect of decent
ion in Washington.
Tho Senate lia at last agreed to
adjourn. Good Friday is the last
day of what promised to prove an
interminable session. The Legisla.
tors will soon return to the bosoms of
their families, some to reap the re.
ward of labors well performed, and
others, wo trust, to howl in sackcloth
and ashes in bitter ponitence for their
atrocioud villuinies.
We have noticed closely the course
pursued by the Fairfield delegation,
and we are pleased to chk'oniole that
as far as we can learn, the members
of the house have voted squarely with
Gov. Chamberlain in his reform
measures. On the other hand Sena
tor Martin has failed to satisfy the
hopes of the people. IlIe has fre
quently voted with Whittemore and
the ring.
Since the House sustainod the
ruling of Speaker Elliott that the
bonanza bill had become a law by
limitation notwithstanding the veto
of the Governor, the question will
be brought into the Courts for a
decision. WYe have examined the
Constitution of thme State in regard
to the veto power, and find the fol
lowing provision, (C'onst. Art. 111
Section 22.)
"If a lull or join t resolution shall
not be returned by the governor
within three days after it shaul have
been presented to him, Sundays ex
cept ed, it shall have the same fore
and effect as if he had s'gned it, u&hlm
thue General Assembly by their ad
jourmen prven its return, in which
cas i shllnothao schforce and
effect unesreturned within two
dlays after their next meeting." [The
italics arc ours.]
TIhe facts are that the legislature
-adjourned over from Trhursday to
Tuesday, andl on Wednesday the
veto was sent to the IIouse. It will
be seen that the Coenstitution is
peculiarly explicit onu this subject.
We bad not examined the article in
question before, amid presumed that
the ruling of Speaker Elliott must
be at least plausible. B3ut in the
Constitution itself we 500 no justifi.
cation whatever of the course of the
house, Thme act was a ilagrant out
rage, and ini our opinion will not
for an instant bear the scrutiny of
the Court.
And this is E'lliott, the patriot
wvho heft a position worth six thou
sand a year for a paltry six hund red

,e capital. And then ho went for it.

)r there exists a deep atid determined
d plot to secure the re-election of

e sied that this would prove the death
t knell of republican institutions in

ed the floor, corridors and galleries
of the senate chamber, Prnd the pre

This vexed question of the third

proportiona in American politics.
'he course pursued Ly President
Grant cannot be logically explained
except upon an acceptance of the
theory that he desires by every means

to the Presidency. At one time,

absurd pretention of Brooks were fos.

when the force bill was being forced

1 thjereaction that is now taking place,

DI desire on the part of the people to

are robbing the anticipated tempest
of its fury and giving fair promise

st The Settlemet'oTtIhe State Debt.
at -
Gov. Chamberlain has exercised
te the divine right of veto once more,
adisapproving a bill to declare the
of meaning of the funding bill settling
ethe State debt. By the original
Ibill all qonsolidated bonds were to
dbear date January 1st l1874, and
.their coupons to be paid in money
on vte blt July following. The
vodbill proposeod to alter this by
declaring that all coupons or inter
heat ordern which shall become due
id "prior to the day on which such
ebonds or certificates of stock shall
be tendered for funding shall be fund
ed or exchanged by the ho'.der there
of.
*t Gov. Chamberlain objects that by
e the proposed act the time of settle
tmeet would be cotistantly varying
lie claims seeer.dly that the pay.
ae ment of a little interest is a much
0- needed spor 'to imnpol creditors to
'accept the settlement, ie insists
that some effort must be made to
restore the. State credit. And to
t-prove that this rest..ration of public
3' credit is essential to the success of
a. private enterprise he says as follows
ie "I fear there are some whIo feol
i. that this subject of our public credit
al is remote and uniuportant in its re
d hations to the interest of the mass of
our oitizens. No mistake can be
' greater. Thlere is not, a man in
Sou th Carolina whose pecnniary wollI
being is not largely t>ound up with
at the condition of our public credit.
>'r Our vast natural ad v:ntages of oli
at are waiting for the coming in of eapi
5. tal to -develop -them and enrich all
ra our peop-le. iWhat capital must-come
re from abruad. Why does it tarry t
No one -cause 'is so potent as thme utter
wreck 'which has -been made of our
in public credit. Men who have sur
ro plus funds will allow themi to lie
idle rather 'than invest them in a
ta State whose public credit is the sport
of the in difference or pasasion which
.rules the'hour. Public credit is like
rpersonal honor, It fools a stain like
'I. a wound. li cannot ie tiflmd w."
Gov. Cham borlain replies ku an
swer to the argument that soia %
respects the fundling not is ambignous
and should ho interpreted, that the
proper interpreteis of the !aw-oie.-the.
Courts, and that both the State and
her creditors should abide by regular:
judicial decisions.
There were certain features in the
vetoed bill to which Gov. Ubaiuber/
lain did not object, but they mup-t
fall with the obuoxious features imn
tioned above.
The veto was sustained.
We presume the veto was wise.
It appears to its however ttat the
effect of the vetoed act would have
been i o accelerate the funding. As
ti law now stands, tio buid holder
knows that, at whatever tiLue he may
exchange his bonds,ull o upons due
since July 1874 will be cashed upon
presentation. le will therefore take
his time in exchanging. But under
the proposed net tLe interest accru
ing from lt January 1874 to the
time of funding would be incorporat
ed iith.he principal and would' hot
be paid within twenty years from the
d te of the exchange. This, upoll
a mere oursory glance, for we have
had no time to consider the question
seriously, would appear to be of ad
vantage to the Stato in postponing
pay day to some futuro date. And
the e.editor to prevent this and in
order to realize as much cish as pos
aible from what, has in many cascs
proven to be a desperately poor spet.
ulation, would luse no time in accept
ing the compromise.
The Goverror in his message how
ever, draws an entiely different
conclusion from thG same premises.
He says
"la addition to the fact of this
ohance, the it,fluence of such a c ar go
on the particular execution of the
"consolidation" act imt st be consid
ered. I cannot doubt that such a
chnnge will greatly retard, if not
wholly airest, the piocess of the ex
change now going farward with such
gratifying rapidity. A, titma paes
and tie holders of our unobanged
bonds and Stocks poerceive that no
interest is received ol their bonds
while unchanged, and that there is
an accumulation of interest on the
b tids and stocks to which they
would be entitled under the "consoli
dation" act, it is muanife.'t that a
constantly increasing inducemient is
held out to them to exchai,ge their
bonds and stocks. W'hen the acci.
nulation of iterest shall hive
amounted to twelve or fifteen cents
on the dollar of the new bonds, the
most reluotant of the holders of the
unchanged botods will find himself
compelled by regard to his own ad
vantage to mahke the exchange.'"
WeO feel sone .sitancy inl running
tilt against the Governor's keen logiv,
but it appears to us that under the
funding act, thme question of receiving
cash is merely a secondary question
of time, whereas, under the vetoedl
act it would have been a vital ques
tion of cash or no cash. To clothbe
the question in homely language,
when .John Doe holds a note on
Richard Roe on which lie canl at an',
time collect hpa.t, due interest, lie is
not half so urgent for a settlement a's
when lhe knows that all the interest
a bcruing up to the date of set tlenmnt
will be tied up in a new "twenty
years-after-dato'' instrum.,ut.
The strongest groun: for the veto
seems to be that the settlenient of
the debt should in no way he d istu b
ed. IIowecver objectionable it may
have been at first, it is mtuch better
than the miserabile chaos in which it
found the finances.
In conclusion, we hi ghly commend
the boldness of the Governor in no't
hesitating to interpose his veto piower
whenever lhe deemed that inteiposi.
tion necessary for the public welfare.
And at the elose of this first session
of the Legislature, we take pleasure
in saying to him, " Won doiie,
good and faithful servant." And wo~
are the more willnug to say this be
cause we h,ad gloomy foreboidinmgs of
the results of his election. We find
in him, thus far, one republican who
