OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COUNTY.
E. A. Burnett,
-pOR ASSESSOR AND 'TREASURER.

rmmi. b a candidate for election to the office
of Assessor and Treasurer of Alexander County at
the approaching November election.

The New Orleans Times says it hears of
Western millers who have asked their 2sew
Orleans merchants to receive their consign
ments and accept drafts, with the under
standing that no flour 6hall be sold under
three months. If this is an effort to bull
the market, it deserves attention.
The Chicago people are talking of a
double-track railway from that city to the
Atlantic ocean. It is estimated that it can
be built at the cost of one hundred millions
of dollars, and it is claimed that such a
road would pay a largo interest on the in
vestment even though passengers and freight
were crrpi t tm'o thjJ f Hie present rate.
Rose SIeeker, the eldest daughter of
the Indian agent who was murdered by the
Utes, writc9 a very passionate letter con
cerning the tragedy. She says that if the
government had acted as promptly before
the massacre as it did after, not only would
her father's life have been saved, but also
the lives of many others who were slaught
ered. It seems that the agent called for
assistance as far back as the tenth of Sep
tember, but no attention appears to have
been given to Ins request for aid. Miss
Meeker is irreconcilably embittered against
the savages. She has lived among them
and knows them. She says that rather than
permit the slaughter of one decent white
man, tho government should destroy every
Indian on the American continent. Low,
treacherous, heartless devils, they should be
swept from the face of tho earth without
mercy. Miss Meeker certainly has cause
for her bitterness; and while the massacre of
Meeker and bis assistants calls for terrible
vengeance upon the guilty Utes, a terrible
responsibility attaches to the Department
of the Interior.
Wk received small weekly paper from
Chicago, called "Rapalice's Jokincllo." It is
devoted to fun and jokes, and is tho most
dismal fuiluro as a "funny paper" we cer
had the ill-fortune to read. Such stuff as
tho lollowing is given with tho expectation
that it will pass current as "original
"There's ft world of fun in watching s
bald-headed man comb his hair."
"At the fair tho 'wheel ol fortune' goes
'round and 'round, and rakes in the savings
of the boys. A respectful distance alone
lends enchantment to the view."
"When a Chinaman wishes to express his
love to a girl he don't get down on his knees,
and paw tho air, or tear his hair. Not
much! Ho simply tells her thnt lie "hkeo
her bettcr'n ruts," and sbo replies in lan
guage just as simple and just as sweet."
"An crchango tells us ot a city youth
who went to the country and returned homo
with his face scratched ami mutilated al
most beyond recognition. A friend asked
if it 'was the fuult of mosquitoes. "Worse,"
be replied, "it's the gol-durned gulliulpers."

FREE RAILROAD PASSES.
A Mr. Webb was recently put on trial in
the criminal court of Chicago under an in
dictment for receiving freo railroad passes
that had been stolen from a special agent
of tho post ohTeo department. The court
instructed the jury that if they found tho
property belonged to the United States,
they should fiud tho defendent not guilty.
On this the jury disagreed and were dis
The Legal Adviser discussing the points
involved, says that the law applying to the
case would bo this, that a railroad freo pass
so called, is not property, at least is not the
subject of larceny, for anything beyond the
value of the paper on which it is written.
If it is not transterablej and if it does not
eutitlo any one but the .owner to ride by
virtue of it, the presumption is that the
holder whoso name it bears, is known to the
conductor, and that no one else would be
allowed to use it. The larceny if any, is the
obtaining of the ride. A man who steals a
free pass does not, by such act, steal the
ride, and cannot, on an indictment therefor,
be convicted for stealing a passage on a
railroad. The pass, at most, is but the
means of deceiving the conductor, and
thereby obtaining a rule without payment
for it, which our statute has not maJe a
An ordinary railroad ticket is in the na
ture of a token, and is good to the holder,
under all circumstances, for all it calls for.
But a customary- railroad freo pass is good
only to the person to whom it is issued, and
is not, in contemplation of law, good to any
one else under any circumstances; neither
is it in tho hands of a wrongful holder, a
detriment to the railroad company, except
as a means of deception, which, as before
stated, is not an indictable offense.
WE MUST PAUSE AND PONDER.
The tremendous and humiliating defeats
the Democratic party has recently suffered
and which it is destined to 6uffer next
month, should cause it to call a halt, ana to
look in njmn itseK wtl on honest pmpo
to determine "what's the matter."
It must stop and inquire if the dogma of
States Rights, which in the North is re
stricted to the generally conceded rights of
the States; but which, in the South is held
to cover the right of secession and absolute
state omnipotence it must stop to inquire
if this dogma, that is responsible for the
Ohio disaster, should longer remain an arti
cle of Democratic faith.
It should stop and consider, long and well,
if it can afford to carry the burdens with
which hot headed and inconsiderate South
ern Representatives have encumbered it.
It must ask itself if it can afford to ap
plaud, or apologize for utterances like that
which fell from the lips of the Kentucky
Congressman, when he declared that "we
will never stop until tho last of your war
measures are blotted from the statute book"
an expression that cost our party one
hundred thousand votes.
The party must6top and inquire if, alter
having been subjected to sixteen years of
defeat by New York presidential candi
dates, it can afford to extend the period to
twenty years by accepting a fifth
candidate from the same State.
It must study the temper of the North i
well os the pleasure of the South, and see to
it that the men who but recently sought to
wreck the ship of State on the breakers of
anarchy and national ruin, are not allowed
to again sucuro complete and unrestricted
control of the rudder.
The party, its leaders and journals must
determino whether they can afford to wink
at or apologizo for the Southern Barks-
dales, the Blackvillc postmnjU'r-fchootm
and Tennessee moonbliiuers.
All thin and much more, tho Democratic
party must connidcr and pnsa upon or go
to the devil with a suddenness that will
make all of our heads swim.
