"We would be glad to chronicle

Theue is no part of the United
States where the poor man has a
better chance to rise than in West
Tennessee. In very few towns, and
nowhere in the country, is there a
trace of that social exclusiveness

the annoyances resulting from
small or moderate means. Here
in society as in politics the true

Congressman Mills' speech on
the new tariff bill stirred up the
Republicans and they now come to
the front with the statement that
Mills would never have been able
to make so fair a showing in favor
of tariff reduction had he not falsi
fied the figures. Tho rediculous
ness of such a claim is all the more
apparent when it is known that
thousands of copies of that speech
will ho sent all over the country,
and a statesman like Mills is not
such a fool as to put on paper what
he can not fully prove.
Mil. Enloe has introduced a res
olution in the House providing for
the appointment of a committee to
iuvestigate the facts in regard to a
change in the wording of the re.
funding act of July 14, 1870, which
was made after the bill passed both j
houses of Congress. The change
which was made was done in en
roling the bill, and by that change
the 4 per cent, bonds were made
payable "after" thirty years in
stead of "for" thirty years. The
result has been that the Govern
ment has paid out many millions
of dollars as premiums on bonds
which it would have had the right
to call in and pay at any time, but
for the fraudulent change in the
funding act, and it is still buying
these bonds at a premium. A
breezy time is anticipated as Mr.
Enloe wants the facts investigated,
so that the illegal redemption of
these bonds at a premium may be
stopped, and it may be known who
changed the act of Congress in the
enrolling committee. Unless the
resolution is lost (?) in the com
mittee room, like the war claims
resolution, the investigation will
only strengthen the evidence gath
ered that the leaders of the Repub
lican party have been running this
Government for personal profit, and
that it is indeed time for the Amer
ican people to investigate the en
tire machinery of our Govermcnt.
