FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1890.
There is a strong; sentiment in
the House in favor of fixing the
number of Congressmen under the
new apportionment at 35(5.
Doubtless the exposure of the
Blaine-Rittenhouse plot will be
n warning to the leaders in the
Alliance, and prove a benefit to
them in the future.
The National Executive Silver
Committee at n meeting Wednes.
day determined to press the free
coinage bill for action at the pres.
ent session of Congress.
The general assembly when it
meets in January will choose
comptroller and treasurer. These
officers are two of the most import
ant in the State, and it is very nec
essary that men who will faithfully
and honestly enforce the laws be
selected.
Sevekal papers in the State are
urging upon the members of the
next general assembly the necessi
ty of removing the penitentiary
buildings from the city limits of
Nashville. This is a good idea,
and we suggest Tracy City as-the
most desirable location.
In a few weeks the general as
sembly will convene at Nashville,
The people have elected represent
atives to whom they look to guard
the interests of the State and en
act wholesome measures to that end,
Let wise counsel prevail in the de
liberations of the assembly regard
less of the consequences.
The voice of Tanner has failet
him since he made the startling as.
sertion that " if the pension policy
of' his party had been more libera
therevolution of November 4 woulc
have been avoided." He dou btless
labors under the same delusion o:
B. Harrison and others that " al
people are fools and don't known a
good thing when they get it.'
The Indian situation as indicat
ed'by the dispatches is improvin
It has been hinted that the rea!
C8U39 underlaying the trouble was
the work of-Republicans to detrac
the attention from the results o
the election and partisan measures
now pending in Congress, which
they hoped' to rush through with
out any comment, but the people
are in the saddle and the days o
the g. o. p. are numbered.
The press of the State are unite
in the hope that Governor-elect
Buchanan will disappoint some o
his critics and confirm the expec
. tations of his most enthusiastic ad.
mirers by making a broad-minde
executive. Let him encourage the
countless throngs of visitors tha
are pouring into the South in the
search for homes, show theni the
many advantages of Tennessee, en
tcrtain capitalists, and make a pro
"ressive governor and TemusMiis
will be satisfied.
JX IXCOjiE TAX.
A novel proposition has Iworr
suggested by Congressman Gates,
of Alabama, looking to a solution
of the pension question in provid
ing the money lo pay pensions by
an income tax. The Government
will pay out this year over $150,
000,000 in the way of pensions.
One-third of this amount, or over
$50,000,000 is paid by the people
of the South, not 1,000,000 of
which is returned to that section.
Mr. Oateh does not object to pen
sioning deserving veterans, but he
is opposed on. general principles to
the business the Government is
now oi)gngt;d in. He considers
such wholesale legislation the re
sult of demagogery, but since it
looks as though it must go on at
this extravagant rate, his solution
of the question is the establishment
of an income tax for the payment
of pensions, and he intends intro-
lucing a bill to tax every individ
ual a certain per cent, on all in
comes exceeding $10,000 a year,
and also tax corporations, but make
the rate less than on individuals.
His idea in formulating this bill is
to force the rich men of the coun
try to bear their just proportion of
the expenses incured by the Gov
ernment. Such a measure would
arouse, all the bitter opposition of
the Republican chiefs and their
tools and the influence of the mon
ey barons who are striving to build
up a separate and distinct class to
be supported by the Goverment.
THE FLECTION BtLL.
At a caucus of Republican Sen
ators in Washington a few nights
ago it was stated by Senator Hoar
that there was some talk about the
possibility of the force bill being
defeated by Republican votes, and
others said that it was only fair
that if any Republican Senators
intended to vote against the bill
they should say so, that the Sena
tors interested in the bill might
know what chance it stood of be
ing passed. No one responded to
this appeal, although there were
several Senators present who are
known t be oppiscd to the bill
and have declared their intention to
vote against it It is clearly evi
dent that the friends of the meas
ure are not sure of their ground
and are feeling their way.
It has been given out that the
present measure will be. defeated,
and Senator Quay will prepare a
substitute for the bill that will
make Lodge and Hoar turn green
with envy.

At a slated meeting of Camden
Lodge No. 179, F. and A. Masons,
Saturday, December (5, 1890, the

to wit: Worshipful Master, D. J.

The latest report from the Cen
sus Office states that the total pop
ulation of the country, including
Indians, etc., will reach 03,000,000.
The actual figures in round num
bers is '315,000 Indians and whites
in the Indian Territory, and the
population of Alaska is estimated
to be alxut 38,000. .These, with the
3,000,000 or more in the South and
some of the Democratic States in
the North, that Porter refused to
include in the count, would bring
up the total population of the coun
try to about (10,000,000, a gain of
about 10.000,000 for the past ten
years.
