The St. Louis Republican states that
Senator Logan, of Illinois, has declined to
go over to Iowa to defend a platform which
decUres that the retroactive salary act was
"flagrantly improper and infamous," and
"should secure the political condemnation"
of those who supported it or indorsed it.
The Senator has never been charged Wjith
over delicacy In political matters, but snch
an insult is too much for even Johu A. Lo

, 'There will bo no State election in Ten

Governor or Federal Senator. Yet the
Memphis Avalanche asserts that "there is
a secret canvass making with more or less
vigor in all part, of tho State by a dozen or
more ambitious citizens who aspire to fill
the uneasy seat occupied by Governor John
C. Brown." Possibly the Avalanche knows
what it is talking about; perhaps it is tell
ing tales out of school on "patriots" of it
own class. Wo kcow thero are many such
restless ones on tho aux'ous bench; but the
great mass of the people are so well satis-.
nod with Governor Brown's administration
thus'far, that they aro net worrying about
the succession. But what does the Ava
lanclie mean by asking "Will the Bour
bons be brave enough to force on tho
Democratic party a candidate of
reactionary ideas? Will they be
brave enough to take a funder? Wi'l
they take a back ssliry grabber ?" Now,
who are the Bourbons? Is Gov. Brown a
Bourbon? What "reactionary ideas" aro
spoken of? Is "funding" now the law, or
not. Does tho Avalandie propose a repeal
of the funding law, or its defeat through
non-execution? Would not such a course
be in tho worst senso " reactionary ?" re

time. As to the " back salary grab," we
think tho people, through their journals, all
over the State,havo not minced the maltor.
Our own views have been often expressed.
Is our Memphis contemporary in earnest,
or is it setting up a inin of straw, that can
only frighten fools?
CAMPAIGN TALK. IN MISSISSIPPI.
Tho St. Louis Times quotes from Ham
Carter the Mississippi negro leader as
" 'It happens,' said Ham, 'that you, not
we, must succumb. You may not like it,
but there is no help for you. We have the
numbers, and do not propose to yield an
inch. You may think this Radical, half
negro, half-carpct-bag, mongrel government,
as you call it, insufferable. It will become
more and more intolerable to you. Ybu
must educate all these colored people. We
mako you pay now for four months' school
ing for our children; you shall pay for nine
months per annum. You must stand aside,
too, and bo satisfied to see us manage all
the affairs of the county and State. You
don't like it, I see you don't,' continued
Ham, 'and if you can't bearit, and get into
that new state of beatitude you were fixing
up at Jackson, Tenn., let me advise you,
young man, let mo urge you affectionately
go west!' "
Yet any Southern white man, remarks
the Times, who presumes to take umbrage
at this insolent and menacing sort of bravado
Is set down by our Ridical friends as an
unreconstructed rebel, who has yet to
learn that tho equality of races is a settled
thing, and that full and exact justice must
be dono to the negro. With such a state of
feeling existing on the part of the black pol
iticians of tho South, aided and abetted as
they aro by incendiary advisers, blacker at
heart than themselves, is it any wonder
that the conservative parly of Virginia
ebould make white government an issue in
the pending election? Is there any really
candid and right-minded citizen who can
censure their course or who docs not hope
for their success?
DOES PROTBCrittN FaeTBCTt"-
That sterling commercial paper, the New
York Butfefinif the 3d Inst., devotes a
leading editorial to the financial affairs of
tka Manchester Print Works in New Hamp
shire, one of the largest textile manufac
tories in New Bcghad. -When"eogaged In
the manufacture of cotton goodsthe com
pany made nearly a half million dollars; &
year. During the war when weoten goods
were in ereatdnaud, tho,crjy chaBg
ed its business "to the, aanafcetu-re of
woolen fabrics; "made money while the war
lasted, but since has lost heavily, and until
it was carrying a debt of $3,870,000. The
great fire in Boston necessitated tho calling
in of a considerable partof this loan,
and the Manchester Print Works
has reorganized .by sinking a
largo portion of 1U original capital. -The
"But the fact that areat company, real
izing a clear profit of over half a million; of
dollars a year on cotton goods, should "be
swamped by manufacturing certain woolen
goods, affords another striking commentary
on the policy of the wool tariff. The woobn
trade, although the most enormously pro
tected business in the United' States, has
been for several years past the most, losing
and unprofitable industry in;the country. ,
A pretty high tariff on wool for tho ben
efit of farmers, toot the sugar out of "pro
tection!' for wool manufacturers. The
above facts are instructive as showing how
impossible.it 5 to benefit all" Industrlelf'by
fairly taxing all alike under the name of
"protection." Whatever bounty TJongress
generously gives to one class of citizens, it
must virtually Bteal from other classes.
Congress never works and earns the money
it votes into tho pockets of its. favorites'.
Who does the labor that gives existence to
PROTECTION TO THE CITIZEN.
In a late address to farmers, B. II. ' Hill
of Georgia said:
"Protection to the citizen is the duty of
the Government, inat protection must
extend to all civil rights, such as, to hold
property, make contracts, sue, givi evi'.
dence, inherit, bequeath, and everything
which pertains to the security and enjoy
ment of life, liberty and property. Now
tho government of which a person is pri
marily a citizen, is bound pri
marily extend this protection, and
must havo the primary juris
diction to that end. If, then, the fourteenth
amendment has made citizenship of the
United" States the (primary citizenihip,
then the primary protection of that citizen
ship is with the Federal Government, and
the primary jurisdiction to extend' the pro
tection is in the Federal Government. But
if thi3 primary jurisdiction is
iu tbo Federal Government, then
the State governments can only exer
cise such jurisdiction subordinate to, and
under the supervision of the Federal Gov
ernment. In' these few brief words I have
feebly presented the question of all ques
tions for all the people of the United States,
and the one on the solution of which hangs
all possible hope in the future for the South
ernetates and people. It will settle whether
you shall be paupers and slaves, or inde
pendent freemen 1"
So far as. the Constitution grants "primary
jurisdiction" to the Federal Government it
possesses it fairly and properly; but over
t':o many and invaluable rights and powers
"reserved to the people and the several
States," the Federal Government has no
more "primary jurisdiction" than has
the Parliament of Great Britain.
Unfortunately it is in tbo nature of any
large power like that of Congress, to usurp
additional powers, it may be little by
little, or by gigantic strides, and attempt
to hold the same in perpetuity with the
tenacity that Gen. Grant clings to his one
hundred thousand dollar extra salary.
The most prominent protection to the
citizen of the United States is the every
day practice of robbing, by a high protective
tariff, nearly forty million people to make a
few favorites very rich. The intrinsic value
of sucli protection and its cost to tho coun
try are just beginning to oo understood.
AS APOLOGY FOB CAPTAIN JACK.
A correspondent of the Freeman's Jour-
nal of New York, signing himself "Am
igo," and disclaiming any interest in "tho
President's Board of Peace Commissioners
or other susceptible humbugs," writes:
"Personally, 'C3p'ain Jack' was a model
of propriety, and would havo been au or
nament to the Young Men's Christian As
sociation, ilo was never known to lake a
glass of liquor, but, on the contrary, teas
known to whip lib men for so doing. He
was a man of pleasant appearance, and re
markable for lib high-toned and dignified
manner. He was always agreeable to his
white neighbors, and fearlessly stood be
tween them and his savage followers, who
feared and respected their chief. Such was
Captain Jack prior to the massacre."
"Amigo" proceeds to narrate a series of
outrages on tho Modocs which he claims
led to the murderof Canby. Ho revives the
Ben Wright story of 1852, alluding to him
&3 "a notorious character, living in the
Modoc country by sufferance of tho Indians
who concocted the hellish design of poison
ing the ensire tribe." Only forty-seven
came to his banquet of death and forty of
these were killed in cold blood. After tho
war which followed Catholic mission
aries went among them and
so far pacified them, that in
1855 they consented to remove to Shasta,
with other friendly Indians, but while under
the escort of Federal troops to this new lo
cation, their chief, Bill, was shot down by
a white desperado concealed in the bush.
Tbo missionaries succeeded in preventing
them from taking the warpath in conse
quence of this outrage. Again in 1858, a
number of Modocs were waylaid and
murdered while returning from Yreka,
where they had sold some fura. But the
pith of "Amigo's" defence lieB in the fol
lowing statement :
"Notwithstanding all these aggravations
enough to drive a very Quaker into hos
tilitythe Modocs remained peaceable, and
in 1864 vfo find a set of swindlers, in the
garb of Government officials, negotiating a
treaty with thsin, the object of which was
to wrest from the Indians their very best
lands and cheat thsm generally, as Is the
custom of tbo highly intelligent snd civ
ilized when dealing with savages. The
friords of the Indians defeated
the confirmation of this treaty by the Sen
ate, and so it was considered a dead letter
by the tri':o, and of no binding force, since
not ratified. Hence they continued in the
possession of their usual hunting grounds,
to whih their right had always been recos
nized. Tho land-grabbeis and railroad spec
ulators, assisted by their friends in Con
gress, wore not Idle, however, and in 1870
six years after the alleged execution of the
instrument by an X mark on the part of
the Indians the treaty was ratified by the
Senate of the United States and proclaimed
by the President in tho language of the Su
preme Court, as the supreme law of the
land!! The Indians were allowed two years
to recover from the shock and accept tho
situation, so in 1S72 we find a positive or
der for their removal, oy military force, if
necessary. They protested against the out
rage and repudiated tho treaty, Jack and his
sub-chiefs asserting that they never bad
signed it, and did not know its purport.
Says as old settler, who has lived in their
country for a quarter of a century past:
"The Modocs aro known as a fearless people,
very punctilious,and always keep their word.
They pledged one another to die rather re
move to the stony and barren tract desig
nated for them. 'Bullet don't hurt much;
starve to death hurt heap;' were the words
of Jack." It was, therefore, well known
that bloodshed was to follow any attempt
to remove them. Notwithstanding all this,
the troops marched to the camp of the
Modocs in tho dead hour of night, with
what object I need not state here. The re
sult, however, was that the Indians, fear
ing a massacre, fled to the mountains, and
from thence inaugurated, a jaid upon the
HP.ti.lArs. whom thev considered traacnaa.
