A New Way to Pay Old Debtt. j
A morning paper prints the particulars of
new scheme for avoiding repudiation of
the State debt, and for patting the finances
ol the State upon a sound footing. The
-plan is that every holder of State bonds j
shall sell bis bonds to the State at fifty cents
on the dollar, receiving new bonds in pay?
ment; that the Legislature pledge the faith
of the Government to set aside one-fifth of
the entire revenue of the State for the pay?
ment of the interest on the debt; t* t no
more bonds be issued until the present in?
debtedness is paid. Tbis proposition, we
are told, has the approval of Scott, Parker
& Co., which is enough to prevent it from
finding any favor with the public Besides
this, the scheme bas intrinsio objections
which wL'l condemn it in the eyes of all
holders of bonds, save those who obtained
. ,jthem at a few cents above the cost of print?
The taxpayers ef the State, assembled in
convention, have formally recognized a debt
Of $9,865,765 as valid and binding upon the
people. Of this amount $5,400,000 repre?
sent the bonds and stocks outstanding Octo?
ber 1, 1867. The remainder consists of the
varions bonds issued by the Scott adminis?
tration. This debt of $9,865,765 is the
whole amount which is recognized by the
taxpayers as a legal obligation of the State.
The Joint Legislative Committee, however,
.report that the debt is somewhere about
$28,000,000, and Scott, Parker & Co. confess
a minimum debt of $15,000,000. Either of
these two last- amounts is more than the
State can pay, and the Ring, therefore, pro?
pose to pay fifty cents on the dollar so as to
reduce the debt to a manageable and endur?
able amount. This we regard os a scheme
to rob the bona fide holders of State securi?
ties for the benefit of the speculators con?
nected with th? Scott-Parker Ring.
Ont of the $15,000,000 of State bunds and
stocks acknowledged by Governor^ Scott, at
least $6,000,000 hav? been the sport of the
balls and bear? and, for all that the public
know, may have been sold at twenty and
thirty cents on the dollar, ?be holders of
thesa bonds could very well allora lo take
new valid bonds, at fifty cents on the dollar,
in exchange for their equivocal sheets of
printed paper. A bond for $500, recognized
as binding, and forming part o? an aggre?
gate debt of only $7,500,000, would be far
more valuable to them than abood of $1000,
which is refused recognition by the tax-pay?
ers and forms a part of an aggregate debt of
$15,000,000 or $28,000,000. But how is it
?withtlhe permanent investors, the bona fide
holders of State bonds and stocks-they
WOO bongbt bonds before the war and hold
them still; they who held the ante-war
registered stock and converted it, after the
war, into coupon bonds: they who received
new bonds in payment of over-due interest
upon the old debt? Are these Innocent
holders to be mulcted of one-half their prop?
erty because a corrupt Ring have made the
total debt too heavy to be borne ? Are they
to be stripped of fifty cents on the dollar,
for the security of Northern bankers and
home speculators? Is the man who paid
one thousand dollars in gold for a binding
bond to be put on the same ground as a
speculator who gave, for a tainted bond,
three hundred dollars in currency? The
proposal is monstrously unjust-one worthy
of the Impeached Governor whose last des?
perate scheme it is.
But even if the plan were such as might
properly be agreed to by all holders of the
bonds and stocks of the State, what security
wonld the holders of the new "fifty percent."
bonds have that the Ring and the Legisla?
ture would fulfil their part of the bargain ?
It is proposed that one-fifth of the State rev?
enue be set apart for the payment of interest,
and that no new bonds be issued until the
old debt is paid. While South Carolina is
controlled by the Scott Ring and a venal
Legislature these promises, even if they take
the shape of a law, are worthless. The Leg?
islature may do and undo what they please
in these matters. They may promise to-day
never to is3ue another bond, and to-morrow
they can, if they choose, order tue printing
of ten million. Aud they would do it if the
price on>red were sufficiently tempting. The
same may be said in regard to the interest
fund. If the Legislature wanted the "one
?'fifth" for per diem, or for any other pur?
pose in which they were interested, they
would birr it without remorse and without
hindrance. No faith can be reposed in any
promise, formal or informal, made by the
Executive Department or the Legislative
Department of the Government of the State.
They are rotten through and through. Until
honest men, whatever their politic?, hold
public office and control the Government, it
is impossible to make any financial arrange?
ment which the creditors can safely accept,
or which the people will acknowledge and
Tb? Lind Commission Swindle.
We print to-day a part of the chapter upon
the Land Commission Swindle, taken from
the report of the Joint Committee. The
committee show the nature of the ordinance
of the Reconstruction Convention author
iz og the formation of a Board of Land Com?
missioner?, and they give the provisions of
the Act? of AssemMy ucd^r which bond
have been issued and lands bav
bought. The ordinance, it will be see
vides that lands shall not be parchas
price exceeding seventy-five per a
their value; that the stock issued I
purposes of the commission shall not '
for less than par, and that the ami
'and purchased in any fiscal year st
exceed the par value of the stock ap
ated for the purpose. The Act o? Ma
1869, appoints an Advisory Board, to i
of the Governor, (Scott,) the Compi
(Neagle,) the Treasurer, (Parker,) th
retary of State, (Cardozo,) and the AU
General, (Chamberlain,) who shall a
a Land Commissioner, who shall giv<

pleasure of the board. This act autt
the purchase of land at such price as tl
visory Board may determine, and the
Commissioner is forbidden to be pecui
interested in any purchases or sales
shall annually make a detaile.l report
operations. The Act also authorizes th?
of $200,000 bonds of the State for th
poses of the Land Commission. An
tional issue of $500,000 is authorized I
Act of March 1, 1S70, which contain
provisions that any purchase or sale
without the consent of the Advisory ]
shall not be valid, and that no purchase
be made unless the Commissioner be c<
