effected a compromise with their employers
by agreeing to abide by a code o? working

equal number ol employers and workmen, and
thus the lockout In tbe building trade in Lon

-The Savannah News, the opposition of I
which to Greeley bas been such a comfort to j
the Grantltes, goes back on them In this fash-1 i
ion: '-The Macon Telegraph quotes from For- J <
ney'a Press of the 17th Instant a paragraph j j
attributing to the News a statement tbat 'Grant I (
will beat Greeley twenty thousand' in this j
State. The statement aforesaid was incorpo?
rated in an article written Borne weeks be-11
fore the nomination of Greeley at Baltimore, j1
and was Justified by public sentiment at that 11
time. Since then lhere has been a tremen- i
dous revolution among Democrats, and lt the 1
negroes enter the campaign with their .pre-? I <
sent apathy, the Greeley ticket will carry the I ?
State with little or no opposition." I ,
-It is stated that Italy and Germany have I
an understanding that In case of the death of
Pope Plus IX they will resuscitate the right of I
veto held by certain Catholic powers in olden I !
times upon tbe election of the head of the 11
Roman Catholic Church. Austria, lt is said, I .
agreed to act ia concert with Italy and Ger-1 '
many provided France would do tbe same; 11
but M. Thiers has flatly refused to enter into j I
any arrangement ol the kind, at the same <
time declaring that In his opinion the right of IJ
the veto has long ago ceased In every country .
in Europe, and that, were it otherwise, he I !
would never sanction any interference o( the ]
State in religions matters. The college of j'
cardinals have resolved that upon the death '
ol the present Pope, if any attempt ls made to '
Influence their votes they will at once proceed <
to Malta and hold the election there. \
-The latest novelty in the way of street car (
motive power ls now In operation on the New j
Orleans and Carrolton Street Raliway. On a \
four-wheel truck about halt the length ol an
ordinary passenger car are a boiler, a tank !
and a double cylinder engine ot seven inches !
stroke. The tank is filled with about three ]
hundred gallons of water. This water ls heat- 1
ed at the depot in a stationary boiler and dis- .
charged Into the tank at the beginning of each <
trip. In this manner enough steam is pro- ?
vlded to propel the car nine miles, and have a ?
surplus of power left at the end of the trip, j
One man performs the duties of engineer,
brakeman and conductor. There is no escape
of steam, nor any noise beyond that ordinarily
caused in running a passenger car; and a trial 1
of nearly three months bas shown this uew ?'
motor to be not only practicable, but much .'
cheaper than horse power. The actual run- >
nlng expenses bave been one dollar and forty- ;
eight cents per day. '
-The new French loan, it ls believed, will ,
cause a considerable shifting of specie and .
hallion in Europe from one financial centre to
another, the effect of which is likely to be felt *
on this side of the Atlantic. Advices from 1
Germany state that at the last semi-monthly '
settlement on the Berlin Bourse, money was (
worth seven to eight per cent, on stocks, and 1
that bullloa was flowing from Berlin. In all (
I parts of Germany manufacturing ls very ac?
tive, except in tbe Iron districts, aod orders
from the United States are reported to be
quite large. This naturally creates a demand
(or money, which ia increased by the con?
tinued payments on account of new enter?
prises formed during the late speculative
mania in Germany. All these facts have their
Influence at the financial centres of this coun?
try, and the natural result is increased firm?
ness in gold and foreign exchange.
-It is safe to presume that President Juarez
is in reality dead, in defiance of the usual rule
that Mexican news Is to be interpreted by
contraries. The report comes through govern?
ment channels and is fortified with accounts
of flags at half-mast and general surprise and
consternation. With the death ' of Juarez,
Mexico loses the one man amoDg Its native
statesmen who has been able to give it even a
semblance 01 established government and to
maintain a technical, it not always a practical,
authority over all parts of that very volcanic
nation. To render Mexico peaceful and quiet
underany constitutional government ls a work
beyond the scope of human powers; but Juarez
has done the next best thing in holding bis
own against revolutions and conspiracies and
keeping the capital out of the hands of the
insurgent?. His death, In the midst of the
long struggle against the present Insurgents,
is likely to remand Mexico again to anarchy,
since the predilections of his successor, Chief
Justice Tejada, are not to be trusted as thor?
The Way the Money Goes.
The affidavit of Mr. Treasurer Parker and
the accompanying statement of receipts and
payments, submitted to Judge Willard in the
Gibson case, throw considerable light upon
the operations of the Treasury Department
since the first day of last November. Mr.
Parker is unable, for the reasons which he
J gives, to furnish a detailed account of the
various expenditures, but the monthly re?
ports made to the Comptroller-General,
which are now under examination, will clear
up many points upon which information is
desired. Turning, first of all, to the state?
ment of receipts, as printed elsewhere, it is
seen that the total amount is $1,115,911).
This hage sum was paid into the Treasury
in about eight months, and, of the whole
amount $950,613 came from the taxes of
1871, and $34,782 from the Liceose tax.
The State tax for 1871 was at the rate of 7 j
mills on the dollar, and was payable between
November, 1871, and January 15, 1872. A J
previous tax, that of 1870, had been collect- J
ed only a few moDths earlier. Taking the I
assessed value of all the taxable property in
the State at $150,000,000, the State tax for I
1871 should have produced $1,"050,000. The I
Treasurer reportr the receipt of $950,613; j
so that fully nine-tenths of the tax was
promptly paid. This is a sufficient answer
to the charge that the State credit is rained
by the failure of the people to pay the taxes.
The amount received from the License taxis
surprisingly small, but the Land Commission
is credited with $3785, and the South Caro-1
lina Phosphate and Mining Company has
paid $500. What has been done with the
money ? The creditors of the State are
clamoring for the payment of their claims.
Where are the million of dollars which were
paid into the Treasury between November 1,
1871, and July, 1872 ? |
A striking feature in the exhibit of dis?
bursements is the absence of any large I
charge for the payment oT interest on the J
?tate debt. Only S3354 were paid for inter-1
est Tho bloated bondholders have not ab- j
sorbed a million dollars in eight months; j
although they were doubtless able and anx-1
ions to do so. The Free Schools are charged j
with $117,671; an item to which no one]
would object if there were any assurance j
that the money was properly and profitably
spent A loan for the payment of interest
on the public debt cost $1082 ; about one- J
third as much as the amoant of interest paid.
Most of the remaining items aro fair enough,
but they do not account for the missing mi!- I
lion. It is not seen where that went to, until
the charges for salaries, for the armed force, I
and fer legislative expenses, are examined. I
Mr. Parker reports that $103,566 was paid J
Tor salaries, and $82,723 for the armed force. I
What is this force ? Where ia it ?. Who drew J
the money? Why did they draw it? This j
is one of the disbursements which will bear I
critical examination ; although we say here I
:hat we do not charge Mr. Parker with any j
official misconduct in confection with I
;hese accounts. Assuming that the pay- j
nents were authorized by law, he bad nothing I
:o do but to keep on paying as long as any I
money remained in the Treasury. The
mount paid out in the eight months for I
legislative expenses is $510,9C3. Before the
war the cost of a legislative session was j
about $40,000. Here is a charge of ten I
times the amount, wilhont counting in the j,
public printing. Nor is that all. Mr. Par- i
ker says that, by authority of a Joint Reso-1 i
lution of the General Assembly, he has J
issued notes for money borrowed io pay the
pay certificates of the members of the Legis-1 ?
lature, and these notes amount to $399,312.
Here we have in tbe neighborhood of one mil
ion dollars-the entire tax collection of one
fear-swallowed up in the pay of members
iud attach?s of the General Assembly and in I
incidental expenses. Nor does this take
into account what orders on the County
Treasurers, issued by Mr. Parker, may be in
;heir possession. No figuring of which we
tre capable will account for these enormous
iebts. During the session of 1871-72 there I
ivere appropriated for legislative expenses I
[including the deficiency appropriation for I.
he session of 1870-71) only $450,000. j [
?Vhence comes then the authority for an J !
?xpenditure of at least a million ? It must j '
ae found, if found anywhere, in the Joint
Re3oluticn of March 12, 1872. Again and
?gain has it been charged that Speaker I
Moses has flooded the State with pay certifi .
sates, using them as a bribery fund to secure 11
his nomination for Governor. Judging by j
what he says and what he does, there is no i
limit to the number of pay certificates which
may be issued. i
These are only the most salieut poiuts of I
the statements printed to day. There is no
guess-work about it. The State Treasurer
is authority for the figures; they are the j j
official admissions of a high officer of the i
government. It needs not to go farther] ?
The record of extravagance and profligacy
3xpo8ed in the short reports of Mr. Parker ls i
jnough to condemn the Radical party to
jveriasting shame. Yet it is not to be doubted 1
;hat nearly every member of the Legislature, J
he body which authorized these monstrous
expenditures and is responsible for them,
viii have the effrontery to come before his I
.onstituents and ask for a re election.
The Georgia Bond Frauds.
The Investigating Committee of the Geor?
gia Legislature submit a report giving the
result of their inquiries into the swindling
schemes of Governor Bullock and his asso?
ciates. They rind that thc fraudulent issues
of Slate and railroad bonds amount to about
$6,000,000, and present to the Legislature
bills repudiating the Brunswick and Albany
bouda, Brunswick and Albany gold bonds,
Cartersville and Van Wort bonds, anil Bain?
bridge, Cuthbert and Columbus bonds, and
declaring all null and void ; also a bill de?
claring void one hundred gold bonds held by
Henry Clews. Resolutions are introduced
recognizing the validity of the quarterly gold
bonds issued under the art o? 15th Septera
.ber, 1870; requiring that bonds hypotheca?
ted be redeemed by payment of the borrowed
money; declaring that the endorsement of
the South Georgia and Florida' Railroad
bonds, and the Alabama and Chattanooga
Railroad bonds is valid; also that the cur?
rency bonds issued AuguBt, 1870, having
been cancelled by gold bonds, are not bind?
ing. The Governor and Treasurer are pro?
hibited from paying the interest or principal'
of any of the bondB declared invalid.
The plan in Issuing railroad bonds is ex?
emplified in the case of the Brunswick and
Albany Road, 243 miles. For this road the
State agreed, on the completion and equip?
ment of sections of ten miles, to endorse the
bonds of the road to the amount of $15,000
per mile. Before this road was completed
for half its proposed length, over $5,000,000
worth of bonds had been issued. In other
cases, the Ring issued duplicate bonds for
the same sections of completed road, and
boldly forged the signature of the State
Treasurer when that formality was necessa?
ry. Well might one of the committee say
that the knowledge of tie facts, in the Geor?
gia swindles, "would bring tears of envy to
"the eyes of Tweed." The truth is worse
than was expected, but a like investigation
would reveal frauds quite as hideous in the
reconstruction history of South Carolina.
For years the whole influence of the National
Government bas been exerted to sustain just |
such thieving concerns as that of Georgia,
and the natural remedy is that which the
committee unhesitatingly propose.
That Bine Bldge Case.
It is commonly believed in Columbia that
the original plaintiff in the petition for the
appointment of a receiver of the Blue Ridge
Railroad bad no higher motivo than to force
tho controllers of the road to pay a disputed
claim which he holds. However this may
be, it is conceded that the action of Mujor
Corbin, in making the City of Charleston a
party to the cause, bas upset the little game,
and puts it out of the power of any one per?
son to drop the case. This will come up
again next week, when it will be pushed
vigorously forward. Is it not strange that
so much argument and entreaty, on the part
of THE NEWS, should have been necessary
before the City Council would consent "to
"make an effort" to save something of the
municipal million out of the Ore? All the
Dombey a are not yet defunct.
The Long Stroke.
The latest Northern papers Iring us tho
particulars of the great college regatta that
bas been the one thought of those interested
in aquatic sports in New England for some
time past. The colleges represented were
Harvard, Yale, Amherst and Brown. The
race was won by Amherst by twenty-seven
seconds, Harvard being second. The race
is noticeable for giving the American crews
another illustration of the advantage of the
long and steady English stroke. When the
Harvards went over te Eogland, they found
too late that their short, quick stroke was
sure to be beaten by a slower aDd longer one
in a straight race. Profiting by this, they
dropped their stroke to about thirty eight or
forty, and in this race never went above
forty-two; while Yale, which pulied the
quickest stroke of all, came in last. It is
conceded that bad steering alone was the
cause of the defeat of the Harvard crew,
otherwise their stroke would have brought
them in the victor.
