Tin: Solons in the Virginia Legis
Injure arc wrestling with a funding
hill. We believe something of that
kind was talked of in Tennessee
"once upon n time."
A pkw papers that we now have in
our mind's eve as clamoring for Gov
ernment aid for the Texas Pacific
Railroad, have hail a great many
hard things to say about subsidies.
Has Tom Scott made any substantial
suggestion ?

It is becoming painfully apparent
that there arc very few men in the
legislature, who really know what
their own views are on the subject of
the State debt. A large number of
those who think they have fixed
views, don't know whether they fa
vor repudiation or not.

Thkuk seems to be a remarkable
mortality attending Circuit Judges in
ftouth Carolina. Of eight Judges
elected in 18G8, five have died. Out
of seven elected since that time, three
have died. With such a record as
this staring them in the face, we
should think the number of aspirants
for that position would be ou the de
cline. TnoE ivmhf.nt souls who sup
posed the assembling of the State
Grange at Knoxville was to raise
wheat to 1 1.2.) per bushel have not
realized their expectations. Our
market reports do not show any
change, which is probably owing to
the fact that the opening sentence of
the address we publish elsewhere, has
not yet been generally read.
Tiik bill which passed the Senate
on the l.Mh fixing the compensation
of the State Treasurer at $lr00 per
annum and other State and county
oltlc!;i!s t a like ratio, might
very appropriately be entitled ''An
Act to Encourage Fraud, and to Se
enre the Services of Imbeciles in
Office." Good officers can not be
procured without reasonable compen
sation. At the meeting of the National
"Grange, at Charleston, a resolution was
adopted favoring the speedy comple
tion of the Washington monument in
the Citv of Washington, and recom
mending subordinate Granges to
make contributions for that purpose.
If the Grangers should succeed in
having this work completed, they will
nave erected a monument which will
perpetuate the memory of their organi
zations a hundred years to come.
The Sri'Er.ioi: Count of Cincin
nati has appointed W. W. Scar
borough, l'resident of the Gas Com
pany, as a Trustee of the Cincinnati
Southern railroad, vic, William
Hooper, resigned. There was quite
a content for the place. Mr. Hooper
opposed the present policy of the
board to build a new road entire,
from Cincinnati to Chattanooga, and
therefore resigned. Mr. Scarlioroimh
was the choice of tU board, and bis
appointment make the Trustees
unit in their plans.
a
i'KiVATE itM'T m received in
this city Thursday, brought the news
of the sudden death of Col. Landon
C. Haynes, in Nashville, early yester
day morning. .Mr, Humes was an
old resilient of East Tennessee, and
for many years a law partner of Col
Jno. Baxter in this city. He resiiei
in the First Congressional district unc'
m lH&'J made a memorable canvass
of the district with the late J'.ule
Thos. A. H. Nelson, who, after
close contest defeated him for Con
Kress bv a few hundred votes.
We are not surprised at the ignor
ance displayed by the Chattanooga
Timm as to important facts, for it i
an every day occurrence, but we are
surprised to see Senator Marchbauks
whose knowledge of public affairs is
admitted on all hands, offeriii"
a preamble and resolution i
the Legislature reciting the fac
that no appropriation has been
recommended by the Committee on
Appropriations for the iinprovemen
of the Tennessee river. The fact
the Committee reports in favor of
$40,000 for the Tennessee, river
above Chattanooga, and $100,000 be
low that point, including the Muse!
Shoals. Ihe Senator's resolution
passed without a dissenting voice
and would Lave been all right if the
facts premised tad really been facta,
Ttckkr are " penny -wise ah J pound
foolish" legislators at Nashville, as
well as elsewhere. It is amazing
that nt this day there should be ad
vocates of a bill to reduce the sal
aries of judicial officers to a foint
lower than u;ost of their clerks enrn.
Every man of sense knows that Me
great source of exense to the State
is the imperfect and incompetent ad
ministration of our laws, civil and
criminal. This is partly due to bail
laws and partly to want of ability,
nerve and energy on the Hench. It
is certain that the latter trouble can
not be remedied by reducing salaries
and putting Kiss competent men in
such responsible positions. If we
wanted to find an enlightened, honest,
prosperous community, we should go
where men of brains, courage and
spotless character administered the
laws. Such a judiciary insures a
high-toned, dignified, learned liar, and
where this is found society will be
protected from the purjurers and
scoundrels who make the court-room
and jury-box a field for chance and
corruption. If our legislators have
any appreciation of their duties, or
of the needs of the State, they will
not offer a premium to crime and ras
cality by lowering the standard of
our judiciary by reducing their sal
aries to the pittance now projoscd.
It is the worst possible point to ap
ply the pruning knife. It is the very-
citadel of our liberties, and the only-
hope for protection to property andffrom tlje head o" a fc!r'l- farnern'
character. Weed out from our crim
inal court-rooms the idle, filthv.
worthless wretches that hang about
them, indicted for petty crimes, by
punishing them when convicted, by
hard, constant, exposed labor on our
streets and roads. They hate work
worse than cowhiding or solitary con
finement. It was the dread of labor
that induced them to drink or steal
and idle away their time. Our Crim
inul Court costs afford a good field
for retrenchment, but not the salaries
of our judicial olRcers.
In 1874 Congress pased what is
commonly known as the ' Poland
Gag Law." Certain newspapers,
claiming an immunity to blackguard
and slander every public man who
crossed their path, raised a terrible
wail that this law was a ' g:m " upon
the freedom of the press. A little
fellow, telegraphing a mean falsehood
about Senator Chandler to the St.
Louis RfpuUknn, indicted for libel
and likely to be brought to punish
ment for it, is howling about " muz
zling the press." If such fellows
could be " muzzled," it would be cred
itable to the press ; for their indis
criminate and unjust attacks upon
public men, are fast encroaching uKn
the influence and character of our
newspapers. The folly of the attack
upon the Poland law is now shown
very strikingly by the unanimous re
port just made by the Senate Judici
ary Committee, which concludes as
follows : "The result is that the act
of June 22. 1874, is not, in our opin-
ion, obnoxious to any criticism ; and
in respect to the crime ot libel, it
confers no power either to bring a
person charged with it into the Uis-
trict of Columbia or send him out of
it." This report is signed by the
two lemocratic Senators, one of
whom 1 liurman is without ques-
one of the ablest lawyers in the Na
tion. It will 1 remembered that
when Judcre Poland was defeated in
Vermont, last summer, such pa)ers
as the New York Ni; and the Tri
Unite attributed it to his connection
with the "outrageous gag law,
which was passed to muzzle the
press." Now the beuate Judiciary
Committee, entrusted to examine
and reort upon it, with reference to
criticisms of the above tenor, says
the law is ' not obnoxious to miy
criticism." The so called " indepen
dent " anil " intellectual " press, at
this rate, will not long be able to
lead the people by the nose.
Thkhe are but three or four States
in the Union where the public taxes
are lower than in Tennessee. It is
very common to charge the " Radi
cals " with the burdens of taxation
in our State, but the fact is that
counting the debt created before the
war, and the accrued interest that the
Republicans Lad to provide for, tit
the close of the war, m arly one-half
the debt was created before tho Itc
publicans took char; of the Stato.
Our rate of taxation, so far from be
ing high, is very low. The per capita
tax in Tcnucsse ; is $2.C'J. The on-

$8.83 in Ohio, $8.r9 in Illinds, $11..

sachusetts. The trouble with us is,
we are so poor that it comes harder
to us to pay $2.69 per capita than it
does the people in Massachusetts to
pay $17.10. We have such misera
ble roads; so many half-cultivated
farms ; so much idle land ; to many
indolent people ; so much ipiteful,
useless litigation j and so many whisky
shops and mi few good schoos, that
we raise but little, and are foced to
spend that little in the wrong direc
tion. With all our natural advan
tages, we seem to get along ptrlv.
It is not that our taxes are high,
but that we are so poor, ttut we
can not pay them The taxis are
alout as low as it is possible to get

need to look after the other irid of

ion. Itoyulon telegraphs to the rinoln
nutl Gazette from Washington, on the
14ih, what Mr. Frye, one of the Hour
Committee, says of their Louisiana trip :
Mr, Frye was on the floor of the House
for a short time yesterday, and talked
freely with the members. lie gave them
to understand that the condition of affairs
In New Orleans and throughout the State
Is desperate, and he could see no WBy out
that was likely to be adopted. He said
everything-was In an unsettled condition,
business TangiiMilnp, and general de
moralization surrounding everything.
Most of the people have lost all hope of a
settled and peaceful condition of society,
and have despaired of any improvement
In public alt'nlrs. He thinks New Orleans
is cursed by some of the worst classes Unit
are to be found in the United States, and
that these classes exercise a terrorism over
the better classes of people, who ore dls
jiosed to be conservative. These people

order, who have no standing, no property,
and nothing whatever. They are not 'on-federates-,
but mostly those who were tix
young during the w ar to enter the army,
and are now without occupation. Mr.
Frye thinks the Conservatives are by far
the better people hi New Orleans, for
they represent the culture, the wealth,
and the business of th city. They gen
erally seek to avoid parties, and the par
tics there are. ns a consequence, made up
on each side of the worst elements of so
ciety. Mr. Frye spoke with great free
dom w ith his colleagues. lie said the sub
ject ought to be above party, and the un
happy condition ot the people, touched
him most keenly. He believes in the ex
istence of the White League, and says
that nobody denies that it is an armed or
ganization. Gen. Sheridan has seen com
panies drilling with arms. He. also be
lieves that intimidation was practiced to
an alarming degree tn various parts of
the State.
Catholicism and the Colored Men.
(Danville (Va.) Corrciipondeni'e Boston GtoboJ
A new movement lias set in among the
colored people. I w as Informed, before
leaving ltostou, that the Komau priest
hood were actively at, work among the col
ored leaders in America, North and
South ; that the black race was to bo won
over to the Catholic Church, and that the
question of caste, as it Involved civil equal
ity before the law and religious equality
in the worship of Ood, was the issue upon
which this work was to be accomplished.
I began my Investigation of this phase of
the Southern question in New York, and
have continued it down to this date, and
at this place. I am now prepared to say
that the evidence iu my possession is
overwhelmingly conclusive uKn the fol
lowing statements :
First, That if the Protestant Churches
of the South maintain caste in the wor
ship of iod, and in the. theological sem
inaries for the education of youth for the
ministry, that the colored people will go
over tinallv to the Catholic Church.
Second, That if the Protcsnant North
abandons the blacks on the issue ot civil
rights, then the blacks of the South w ill
join the monarchical party, which is gain
ing rapidly at the South, and which has
its active disciples in every (southern com
munity from among the colored people.
Khali Railroads be TasettT
The Nashville correspondent of the
Louisville Ccurier-Jonrnal, writiug
about the financial situation in Ten
nessee, says :
In Tennessee there are l,t34 miles
of railroad enjoying the immunity from
taxation. I bey are all quite wealthy
aud fully able to bear a heavy taxa
tion, yet from some influence or other
they have never yet been taxed. In
this time of need, when the people
begin to talk of a repudiation of their
honest liabilities, it seems to me that
they should turn their intention to the
exempted property, aud see if the rev
enue may not, by a judicious levy, be
so increased as to obviate the dire ne
cessity of repudiating. Let us see
what those railroads ought to pay if
taxed lit a valuation of $JU,000 to the
mile, as is done to Kentucky. This
valuation, assessed at 40 cents, which
is the pittmnt rate, would annually in
crease the Stale revenue $1:50.720.
which would go far towards relieving
tne pressure.
Aud why should they not be made
to pay ? They are, of all corporations,
the most utterly soulless. A great or
ganization has, within a year or two,
sprung into existence, most of all be
cause of the exertions of railroads. If
any sane man ean tell me that a rail
road should for any reason known to
day, be exempted from taxation, I
would be glad to bear from him. The
people who annually pour into their
colters millions of dollars to pay taxes
why should not they ? To one who
believes as I do, that no piece of prop
erty, of any description whatever,
should be exempted, the puerile expla
nations of interested parties sink into
utter insignificance. And yet there
are men here in the General Assembly
to-day, who will sit down upon the
throne of the demagogue aud gravely
propose to repudiate the honest indebt
edness of the State, but would throw
up their hands lu a holy horror at the
bare mention of the taxation of a rail
road. In a Peck of Trouble.
