THE LETTER OF THE Sl'PEH
INTEKOENT OF Pl'BI.IC
Which our readers will find published
on our first page, apiears to have leen
suggested by comments in Thk Citizen
on that "bill of abominations" the Blair
bill, leading up to the exposure of the ed
ucational wants of North Carolina. For
the supply of these, Major Finger, as
well as everyone else who knows us, we
have alwaysmanifested thesincerest con
cern. It is not a debatable question,
that bctweenthe perpetuity of ignorance,
and the diffusion of education, common
sense, common humanity, common inter
est, promply enlist themselves on the
side of the latter. But as a means of er
petuating the "civil and religious lilwr
ties" to which Major Finger refers, and
which are proposed to be secured by the
enactment of the Blair bill, in what atti
tude, in relation to those liberties, would
such bill place us? Civil lilierties se
cured by the enactment of unconstitu
tional measures; religious liberties by
debauching the moral sense of the people
by making them mean dependents on
the bounty of the government and recip
ients of a fund accumulated by partial
favors extended to special interests, by
rapacity and by injustice. Now, we arc
not disposed to accept any part of this
fund as condonation for the wrong
incidental in its accumulation. Hon
est, fair, economical, national policy
would forbid its being in the treas
ury. Its existence there is constant
temptation in its use for sinister purpose
under the plausible pretext of generous
regard for universal good. The very
plausibility of the purpose to aid educa
tion constitutes the danger. It is insid
ious and deceptive in its movement. The
people are attacked on their weak side
Thcv feel the necessities of education ;
and they believe that ignorance is to be
enlightened by liberal application ol
money, and that money not to come out
of their own resources. It is very tempt
ing; but themonev does come outof their
own pockets. They are robbed without
knowingit, and are asked to be grateful
when the robbers propose to share with
them some of the ill gotten spoil.
Major Finger certainly does not pre
sent a very flattering picture of the rela
tion of educational effort in North Caro
lina in comparison with that of some
other States. As he is Superintendent ol
1'ublic Instruction, we accept his state
ment. The fault is not with the people;
it is with legislation. The people are
eager for enlarged educational facilities;
they are able to extend them ; they would
gladly, we believe, authorize the increase
of the school tax to double or treble its
present limit. Such taxation would not
be felt as a burden. If there is any return
in monev raised by taxation, it surely is
in that which repays a thousand fold in
the substitution of general intelligence
for intellectual darkness. But every one
knows the hue and cry raised by the dem
agogue when the question of taxation
Answering here a question propounded
by Major Finger, "Do you mean to say
that the Democratic press is a unit for
public education in a more liberal sense
than the present system indicates?" we
say that with the details of the present
system we can have nothing to do, since
they are defined by laws which legislative
power alone can affect, and that there
tore we can make no present practical
suggestion for "public education in a
more literal sense." We havc.no reason
to complain of the system so far as we
know it, and so far as it goes. It is suffi
ciently liberal in its branches for all prac
tical purposes. We would find an educa
tion practically a useless one that would
give all pupils the learning college grad
nates are assumed to acquire. If there
be fault in instruction, that is a fault that
monev will not amend unless the breed of
college professors be enormously multi
plied and they work at the low rates of
There would seem to be schoolsenough
in the country to teach all the children to
whom they are accessible. The trouble
is the short terms of the schools, made
dependent on an inadequate school fund
And we answer another of Major Fin
ger's questions in regard to the increase
of such fund by emphatically saying
"yes." That is the true solution of the
question, prompt, manly, independent.
It would be to mistake the character of
the North Carolinian to believe that he
has lost the traits ol his forefathers, who,
amid the confusion of war, provided for
the wants of education ; and who would
in time of peace and prosperity neglect
it, or had so far lost their ancestral spirit
of indeiendence as to receive as a boon
provision for the education of their chil
dren at the hands of others.
Relief for the situation lies with the
people themselves, lies with their earnest
interest in education, lies in their readi
ness to make some sacrifices to provide
for it, and must come through large addi
tion to the school tax. And we are glad
Major Finger has show them themeager
ness of their present contribution. The
State is now rich enough to do infinitely
better than that, or else on questions of
progress and increase of wealth she
should be silent and ever after hold her
A tip on winning the human race Lift
your hat to the ladies.
Our astute friend of the Hendersonville
Times complains that we gave no proof
to sustain the charge that "the party
now known as the Republican is the di
rect inheritor of the principles of Federal
ism," etc. We do not propose in current
writing to stop to make affidavits of the
accuracy of assertions like the above too
plain for contradiction or controversy.
Federalism in the course of descent has
changed names as many times as a Chi
cago belle in going through her successive
divorce courts. It would be as profitless
a labor to trace the genealogy of that
party as it would be to trace up the ped
igree of a Maltese Jack to fix the identity
ofsjwcics. The long ears and the reso
nant bray will always proclaim from
what stock he came. Now, we do not
mean to disparage the Republican parly
by the illustration; for abstractly, we
respect it as the exponent of the early
divergence of public thought and consti
tutional construction in the early days of
the republic. We do not admire the
principles the early Republicans took
under another name. They had a linger
ing affection for ni'narchy, or for a
strong government, and one splendid in
its expenditures on whatever was to
illustrate the power and grandeur of the
new nation. Failing ill that, they adop
ted as a compromise course, a very lati
tudinarian construction of the constitu
tion under which they might do anything
that was desirable. This is precisely the
position of the present Republican party,
with a frequent outcropping of the old
idea of a consolidated, central, strong, it
not monarchical, government.
We cannot foresee the outcome of the
trial of the Lexington lynchers. We do
not anticipate the conviction of a single
offender. But we would not argue from
that that the jieople of Davidson ap
prove of the crime of lynchingJcr se. W e
would infer that it was the natural ex
pression of sympathy with friends un
wisely, perhaps unwarily drawn under
the influence of asentimentnotaltogether
criminal into the commission of an of
fence for which the law has no indul
gence, and which the best judgment
sternly condemns. Hut if there lie no con
viction in any of these eases, immense
good is done by the presentation of the
machinery of the law, not always to be
used without effect. The fact is demon
strated that lynching will not be toler
ated as a popular amusement, that men
cannot frivolously take human life into
their hands to make sport of it; that
they cannot contemptuously set aside
the solemn forms of law, and mete out
justice after their conception of it. They
will pause when they are taught that the
end to them may be the gloomy experience
of the prison, the fearful ordeal of the trial,
the stern severity of the judge; and not
improbable, the hideous spectre of the
With such alternatives presented,
lynching will hardly be resorted to heed
lessly ami hastily, when justice can be
executed through its regular channels.
In connection with our comments on
the letter ol Hon. . I,. M. Curry on the
Blair bill, we find an editorial in the
Nashville American of the 'JSih which
takes substantially the same position as
ours. We quote only that portion ot the
editorial which asserts, as we have done,
the ability, and also the duty of the sev
eral States of the South to take care ol
themselves and supply their own educa
The American says:
In conclusion we will venture to sug
gest to Mr. Curry that the Southern
States arc not poor enough either in
purse or in spirit to go begging tor money
to support their domestic institutions.
The South has risen from the rums ol
war by its own unaidcl efforts, in spite
of all that calumny and hostile legisla
tion could do to prevent it. This is one
of the proudest chapters in its historv
And now when its progress is the uni
versal theme, and when prospentv
knocking at its door, cranks and dema
gogues would have it sully this proud
recora oy becoming a ourglar or a men
dicant. No, thank you, Mr. Curry.
