fThe Governor's Message.
The Message of Governor Scott, presented
to tue General Assembly yesterday, is both
worse and better than we bad ventured to
expect. It is exquisitely malignant in its
misrepresentation of the motives and feel?
ings of the white citizens of the State, but
it is bold and emphatic In denunciation of
extravagance, and in recommendation of
stringent measures ol economical reform.
A large part of the Message is devoted to
a consideration of the fiscal condition of
the State, and of the circumstances which
provoked the sudden collapse of the public
credit. Governor Scott declares that the
whole public debt, as reported by the State
Treasurer, is $11,994,908, and he assures the
people that he knows, from severe personal
scrutiny, that the statement is full and cor?
rect-suppressing nothing. ' The amount re?
ported by Governor Scott is, with a frac?
tional difference, the same as was reported
by Messrs. Orr, Pope. Baxter and Brenizer;
but we remind Governor Scott, as the com?
mittee did, that he most take into account,
as a part of the debt of the State, either the
floating debt of $900,000 due Mr. Eimpton,
or th? $3,773,000 of bonds hypothecated to
secare its payment It may be the inten?
tion of tbe State Government to pay the
money and cancel the bonds, bot, until that
be done, the debt of the State must be in?
creased by either $900,000 in money, or $3,
773,000 in bonds. Governor Scott's state
meats in regard to taxation are extremely
disingenuous. The very Agares which he
prints in support af his views are a sufficient
evidence of the magnitude of the borden
saddled opon the taxpaying people. It was
necessary, however, to give some plausible
reason for the fall of the State bonds from
80 to 20, and Governor Scott lays the whole
blame apon the opposition press, and the
people whose exponents they are presumed
to be. 'With singular cocines?, he asserts
that, had not the cry of repudiation been
raised, the debt of the State would not now
exceed ten ' millions. This is a sufficiently
damaging admission considering that the
debt of the State, one year ago, was Bet
dows by his own Comptroller-General at
$7,665,908. We thank Governor Scott, how?
ever, for placing on record the fact that,
three years ago, THE CHARLESTON NEWS, in
plain words, gave warning that the white
people of the State would not hold them?
selves responsible for any of the bonds is?
sued by a government in which they had ho
representation. This proposition interfered
with the schemes of the persons*who ex?
pected to make money oat of the State Gov?
ernment A clique who are supposed to
lead the public by the nose denounced THE
NEWS as a rash disturber of the public peace ;
as a wanton destroyer of Ure public credit
Had the people stood togethiv, they might
hare reasonably expected td obtain a con?
siderable influence over the expenditure of
tbe revenues of the State. They were - pre?
vented from BO doing by the apathy and
sneers of Lime-serving sheets, which are
ready enough to offer their nostrums when
the morie- hutt is dene, bat which bad not
the manhood or independence td cot deep
into the wound before the whole body was
corrupt These who now howl at THE NEWS
for not advocating propositions which are
an insult lo the intelligence of their readers,
and to the craft of the Bing, are the very
journals responsible for the supineness which
made it possible to add million after million
to the debt of the State.
Governor Scott explains some of the rea?
sons which brought about the appointment
of Mr. H. H. Kiujpton as the Financial
Agent of the State, and admits that it was
a grave mistake to appoint an individual in?
stead of a chartered company. It is dia
- tinctiy stated that neither neglect nor fraud
is alleged against Mr. Eimpton, who, Gov?
ernor Scott admits, did the best be could an?
der the circumstances. Governer Scott con?
demns the practice of drawing upon the
agency to meet the current expenses ot the
State, in advance of the collection of taxes,
and advises that ia future, no money shall
be borrowed or debt contracted to pay car
rent expenses,* so that all persons to w?om
money may be due shall await the collection
of taxes. The improvident and extravagant
expenditures ot the General Assembly are
sharply criticised, and the Governor admits
that the fancied combinations of the oppo?
sition could not have been so successful bad
not the General Assembly lent them, "its
*'practical cooperation" by exhausting the
fundB in the Treasury. Tho legislative ex?
penses of the last session, including oat
standing claims, were $583,651. Before the
war, the Legislature cost about S40, OOO a
session. The bill of $91,500 for furnishing the
Statehouse with brocade curtains and gilded
cuspidors is declared to be entirely without
warrant of law. This passage io the Mes?
sage will not solace the disconsolate Furni?
ture Bing. As measures of retrenchment,
Governor Scott proposes that the members
of the Legislature receive a Axed salary in
siead.of a per diem; that the Code Commis?
sion, and the offices of Land Commissioner
?nd Assistant Adjotant-General, be abolish
ed; that the total salaries o? the School
Commissioners be reduced from $31,500 to
$10,000 a year; that the office of County
Auditor be abolished-a saving o? $50,000 a
year; that, the costly Trial Justices, in
Charleston, be replaced by three Police
Judges with adequate salaries; that the
office of Recorder of Charleston be abolished ;
that the salaries of all officers, high and low,
with the exception of the Judges, be re?
duced one-third. These are sensible and
practical recommendations. We shall soon
know whether the Legislature intends to
turn over a new leaf, or to continue the old
story of reckless extravagance and waste.
Taxes are proposed upon rice and cotton,
and upon railroad tonnage, and it is advised
that a system of State licenses be esta?
To enforce the payment of taxes, i- e. to
obtain a supply ol r^ady money, it is ad?
vised that delinquent property be Bold within
thirty days after the taxes apon it fall due,
and that "bonds of the State be taken in
"payment at par for all real estate pur?
chased at delinquent land sales," and that
the State warrant the titles. The public
lands of the State, valued at one million
dollars, are proposed to be sold, at an early
period-the bonds of the State, at par,'being
taken in payment. But the taxpayers who
are delinquent, or who are likely to .become
so, are not the holders'of State bonds. They
could oDly obtain them by parchase in the
open market, the effect of which would be
to cause an immediate advance in the price
of the bonds. And this advance, far more
than any advantage to the taxpayers, is
what Governor Scott bas in view. "We can
3ee that, under the proposed law, the over?
due taxes, amounting to $1,137,433, could
be paid in bonds costing less than hali that
amount in actual money, and, BO far, it j
would benefit the people who have taxes to
pay. And if bonds of the State are to be
I ?old to liquidate the floating debt of the
government, it is better for the people that
they should sell at fifty cents than that they
should bring only thirty or forty. Bat the
people, although ready to accept whatever
saving the proposed law may permit, will
treat the whole scheme as a stock-jobbing
speculation. They will, indeed, regard Gov?
ernor Scott's Message as a desperate at?
tempt to bolster ap the State credit, and to
I save President Grant from the consequences
of his ill-advised action in suspending the
writ of habeas corpus in the upper counties
o? the? State.
Upon the subject of Ku-Kluxism,* which
Governor Scott dise?ases at length, it is
sufficient to say, at this moment, that, if the
State Government ?ad "assailed no private'
"right, and committed no public rcrong,"
and ii it could not, with justice, "be charged '
'icith ever having wantonly injured a citizen,
'either in his person or estate," a Ku-Klux
outrage would never have been heard of io
South Carolina. We are free to admit that
the State Constitution is liberal in its provi
j sions of enfranchisement, and that Governor
I Scott, apon scores of occasions, bas made
golden promises to the white citizens. Bat
against the words ol the organic law must
be s?t tbe deeds of the State officials. - Of j
what value were words when the people |
were oppressed by taxes, when the tfebt was
mounting higher and higher, when an infa?
mous election law stripped the people of the
fower to redress their wrongs at the polls,
when ignorant colored militiamen were
hounded on to deeds of violence and blood,
when adventurers and thieves filled offices
which had been occupied by the purest citi?
zens of the State, when literty, fortune and
life itself were absolutely at the disposal of
a borde of public robbers, wheo the Almigh?
ty seemecf to have withdrawn His protectipg
hands ? We condemn Ku-Kluxism as mor
; ally wrong and politically inexpedient, bat
we cannot forget the insults and sufferings
endured by oar people. .
The Message, all in all, will doubtless an?
swer its purpose. It will tend to relieve the
State officials from their monetary embarass
ments, and it will, besides, be expounded as
unimpeachable truth by all tbe stamp-speak?
ers and hack-writers who, daring the com?
ing year, may find* it necessary to defend
the military usurpations of the Grant admin?
