MR. DEPEW ON THE CONVICT
Mr. Chauncey Depew is Riving mime ol'
his impressions' derived from liix meat
visits to place the South. On the
whole his views are intelligent, and on
the whole favorable. He has reached tin
conclusion, which all judicious men muni
come to, that the alleged friction between
the races is not to be ninootlu'd by con
gressional methods, but mast lie left lor
the people, controlled by conditions, by
interest, by sympathies and kiiowkd
of ileum character, to (leal with. Com
intf from so pronounced and iiillurniial a
republican, this conclusion tuiulit have
weight if the majority in congress wen
not predetermined on a less wise and
more exUHuerutini; jmliey. Hv the ma
jority of his purty Mr. Ileiiew'slilKTalily
or wisdom will be ascribed to the cordi
ality of his reception and the uencrous
hospitality extended to him w herever lie
went, and which he frankly acknowl
edges. There is only one topic upon which Mr.
Depew expresses himself that we propose
o advert to the Southern convict sys
tem, which he denounces in unmeasured
terms. And since the press of (Jcor"ia
and South Carolina have unsparingly ex
posed the horrors of the convict eani)r
in those States under the workings of the
leuse system, Mr. Depew cun hardly lx
condemned for the conclusions he has
reached. Hut he includes the whole South
in his denunciation. lie would, if lie lunl
extended his invcstifjntions into North
Carolina, have exempted this State from
his severe censure. Here, beyond ipies
tiou, judgment is lcniicrc4 with as much
mercy us is possible in the punishment 01
crime; and whilet'ie penitentiary, the con
vict farms, the convict iiiarters are mini
of them desirable resorts for the free citizen
and the innocent, the suicrvision of the
law so iuterHises the shield ol its protec
tion t hut needless cruelly or hardship h-
imMssible, or il iiniused, quickly checked
Mr. Dcpcw sH'uks like n political liiyol
when he relers to the methods by which
the penitentiaries are filled with the ipio
tas of subjects meded for contractors.
His stutemeut is false, unjust and liUII-
ous. We have recently given n striking
instance ol the absolute equality of tlx
nccro with the while man in his pursuit
of justice belorv the civil tribunals. It if
the same m relation to crime.
"Sometimes contracts call lor a certain
number of convicts and the St'ile lui -nislies
them. How ? If they can't fill the
tuiota otherwise the most trivial ollcuc.s
arc made an excuse lor Iouk term ol im-
prisoiimcnl. 1 have no dou I it ilialmaiiv
iiinoeeul men are servin w.ul ,. in
Southern convict camp that th. iiiota
mit-ht be tilled."
This is what Mr. Dc'W says. 1' is a
broad unreserved charge, makiu a close
alliance lictween the ailiiiiuistrnlioa ol
the criminal law and the needs id' the
mercenary contractor, ami make the
Slate a partner, for pain, with the merci
less contractor wild sees a field lor still
farther K"in by the enforced labor anil
narrow sustenance of innm-cul viclinir
to unjust and uneipial law. Mr. Kx w
has u,one further than the unii.1 rabid
sectionalism would juslily; lor he im
pugns the motives and I lie conduct ol
the Southern courts of justice, who, ii
from uo other motive than reputation
and interest, could not ullord lo chal
lenge the judgment and ccaiirc ol the
world. Punishment arc wnucliiac ilia
proKirtioaed lo the gravity ol the ol
lenccibut such punishnieiil is lixeil liv
the luw, nnd meted out with eiiml hand
to all colors and races. Hut Mr. Ik w
diK'rediU bis own itilelligeii.v when lit
gravely states us his deliUrale opinion
thai innocent men are serving out sen
tences that the quotas to eoutrnctors
might lie filled. He know that such
things would be impossible, even if l hey
were proKsed. The Soul h is not Rus
sia, us lie suggests. The cry of inno
cence cannot be stilled, even il il were n,
sible, which it is nut, lor innocent men
to puss front the court house branded
with guilt. A jury may err. rarely, in
its conclusions. It cannot do so to tin
extent of building up such system us Mr.
leiew expresses himseif without doiilil
as having active existence. Hut Mr. Ie
ik'w's opinion will be law to the parti
sans of his section; and it i iinui such
hasty mid prejudiced judgment Unit so
much of hostile Iceling to the South is
created and KTietuntcil.

been to already crowded State,

tual. A movement townrds the North
is more to the purpose as testimony to
the sincerity of the interest in the wel'
fare of the negro rprceil by that pvi
pie, Hut we cxiwci uo large movement
in that ilireelioii. The field of labor is

John II. Inin.ni, president of the Rich
mond and Danville railroad, has lieen in
the city several days with his family.
He was seen yesterday nt the Hattery
1'urk and asked about the prosiects ol
Asheville, as relating to his road.
"Asheville is one of the most iopulnr
places with New Yorkers in the South,"
he said. "This great influx of travel
which has turned this way this winter is
not n mere spasmodic svstem of public
favor, but one that will continue and in
crease from year to year. Asheville is
now very extensively known in New
York, but is getting mure so ull the lime.
This is greatly owing to the fact that
those who come down here from that
place are so wel! pleased that they go
back singing Asheville praises to their
friends, and the result is, a nuinlicr come
here the next season instead of going
further South, One drawback to the
pross.'rity of the place is the lack of suffi
cient hotel aceomiiiodations. I have
known of several cases this winter where
parties were very anxious lo come to
Asheville, but were torcetl to go to I-'lor-
da because they were not ulile to secure
the projicr accommodations.

villi u view to having the railroad com
pany put up another hotel. This is not
done to nutagoiiizc the other hotels, but
simply because I think it would pay nnd
help Asheville iuimenselv. I have not
mentioned it to the board uf directors
yet, but think when I do there will lie no
trouble in inducing them locxcnd$l!.';o, -

'The railroad accoiuinodnlioiis are not

to improve them considerably before

sleeping car will lie put on, running from
Hot Springs to Nrw York, avoiding the
change o cur ul Washington, w hich is
now rendered necessary. Captain Mc-
fkv, of the Western North Carolina di
vision, has the interest of the tiaveliue
public at heart and I am sure will do nil

"I am verv confident that Asheville,
with the section surrounding it, has a
great future. You here have the scenery.
the natural advantage and the climate.
The latter is tile principal thing sought
for by New Yorker who come here. In
New York city our climate is far too
rigid and is often very injurious to those
living there, Asheville's climate is so
lilferent that it is very beneficial to u
business man to leave his work and
ieiid a few weeks here.
'This travel 1 not spasmodic," he re-
icutcil on finishing, "but is here to slay.
I am very happy voiici-ruing the situa
tion here now, mid think Asheville will
continue to grow in Hipularity."
Mr. Iiliiiau left to-day for New York,
but Mr. Inninii and the rest of the fam
ily will remain hen- lor some time yet.
"I would like to stay here ten das lon
ger," he said, "hut owing to business
mutters it is impossible for me to do so."
