THE NEWS AND HE13ALh,
SATURDAY, MAY A1, 's i1't.
A HUDsON young man has boen
arrested for "pure laziness" and being
a "drag" on his father. Iis offense is
a very grave one; of course, and fur
nishes a good cause for detention.
But we are inclined to think that this is
one case in which the old gentleman
should have taken the law in his own
TiE Cleveland Plaindealer looks
upon the suggestion that the Demo
crats nominate a Southern man for
Vice-President as sentimentally good,
but as foolish as far as practical poli
tics Is concerned. But the next Dem
ocratic Convention will perhaps learn
the Plaindealer a thing or two that it
never thought of before. The Solid
South is now an integral part of the
Democratic party, and there is no
rubbing it out. The Vice-Presidency
is really a small matter.
EVERY State in the Union has a
divorce law except South Carolina.
They are very diverse in their provi
sions and in practice give rise to some
curious legal difficulties. The Courts
of the different States are becoming
very jealous in the matter of jurisdic
tion, and the tendency just now is to
i'eftse to recognize as valid a divorce
by the Court of another State unless
both parties to the suit were subject at
the time to the jurisdiction of the
Court granting the same.
O'Brien at Toronto.
The riot of Orangemen in Toronto,
Canada, to prevent William O'Brien,
the editor of the United Ireland, from
speaking in that city, was a disgrace
ful exhibition, to characterize it in the
mildest terms. It will receive nothing
but condemnation from the Intelligent
friends of Ireland on this side of the
It would be well for the Irish cause
if the responsibility for the affair could
be packed oil on a congregation of
roughs inspired by the minlona of
Salisbury. But this cannot be done;
the task is too great a one even for the
mendacity of partisan politicians. The
unpalatable truth must be accepted
that it was the unpremeditated unris
ing of Canadian Irishmen of the
Protestant persuasion. It will not
have the effect of strengthening the
conviction of the Ameriean people in
the capacity of the Irishmen for self
Some days ago the World gave this
explanation of the origin of the labor
"The labor movement in politics is
the outgrowth of the feeling that our
laws and the conditions of life created
by them are no longer equal, that the
Government. is conducted in the inter
est of the rich and the privileged, and
that the old parties are either unmwill
ing or Impotent to remedy tie injus.
tico and errect existing evils."
Whereupon a contemporary asked if
we, or if anybody, could "devise a
system of laws or a form of govern
ment that would bring about an actual
equality of 'conditions of life' among
The World, it is hardly necessary to
say, does not believe in any lovejlng
process applied to .'ociety. Especially
isit opposed to levelling men downI to
the plane of the lowest ability, the
least enterprise, the smallest industry
and thrift. Neither does it believe in
any patent pl an for making the witless
equal to the brainy', the lazy equal to
the industrious, the unskilled equal to
the trained, or the intemperate equal
to the sober. But there may be, and
in a Rlepublic there should be, equ all
ty of rights, of privileges and of op.
portun ties for all citizens, which does
not exist here in as great a degrr3 as
it once did.-NY. Y. World.
This is a formidable indictment, and
yet who can gainsay its truth? Who
in this (lay would have the hardihood
to maintain the proposition that the
average young man whose fortune
consists In hia pluck, his energy and
his brains, has anything like an even
chance, in the race of life, with a dull
descendant of a pig-Iron manufacturer
who has a million of dollars invested
in an enterprise that is "protected by
a government tariff?
Indeed, if the whole truth must be
told, the peope- of this country have
sunk into a condition of insignificance.
The railroads and other monopolies,
engendered by a false economic sys
tem, have overshadowed them in im
portance; and the troublo with the
two political parties is that each one
has heretofore shown a willingness to
tolerate any state of affairs in order to
get officee and keep office. At every
recurrence of a general election they
each come before the people with a
platform of principles that means any
thing and everything-a perfect Jum
ble of. contradictories.
The formations of new parties when
rightly interpreted Is not an fanmixed
evil by anly means; something will
have tn be done occasionlyt ach

Messrs. Editors: Acting on the
principle that "It is better late than
never," I now attempt to comply with
the promise made you, and give your
readers an account of my' Western or
Texas trip. Monday, March.14, .feUUnd
me'in Charlotte purchasing a ticket
through to Waco, Texas, paying for
the same thirty-seven dollars .and a
few cents. The clerk very courteous
ly gave me choice of routes, inform
ing me that the fare would be the
same on any and all the roads. Stand.
ing just in rear of me while this trans.
action was going on was i young man,
who iaformed me that he was from the
old North State, and was on his way
to seek his fortune in the great State
State of Texas. Having no particular
objective point ho also bought a ticket
to Waco, giving us a compagnon de
voyage, which, though unexpected,
w?s'none the less pleasant. After but
a short delay we boarded the. cars of
the Piedmont Air Line, whose beauti
ful coaches gave us assurance of a
comfortable and pleasant ride over its
length. On the train we again had
the good fortune to meet with friends
of by-gone days and revived friend
ships which, though so genial to our
naturo, are yet so easily dispelled in
ry-mani-for-himself-ag' in which we
live. Our iron-horse stied on his"way
with un:aging energy, carrying us
rapidly through the thriving cities and
towns which have so recently sprung
up along this line. Reader, If you are
one of the number that thinks South
Carolina is dcad,take a ride over this
Air Line Railroad and see for your
self if there is not "life in the old laud
We reached Greenville on time, and
having a few spare moments. walked
out and took a look at the surround
ings. We were standing in the .same
place when in boyhood days we had
shot the Robin red-breast and nimble
squirrel and when on many an eve,
we had gathered chinquepins and
made heads for a certain black-eyed
maid, who shall be nameless here, but
with whom we then thought we were
desporately in love.
' How changed is all of this now I Tre
mondous brick and frame buildings,
with street care running every few
minutes between them, now occupy
our foer "happy hunting grounds,"
and prove beyond thA h alnw of a
doubt that whether "Uncle Jasper" is
right in his theory or not, "the world
do move." But the "all aboard" of
the conductor awakes us from our
reverie and reminds, us that life is
real, and he must be up and doing
who would keep pace with the pro
gross of our day and.tinme..
We hasten aboard, and continue our
journey towards the GateCity of the
South, which we reached about 10.80
p. mn., where we were escorted'by a
very clever gentleman, Mr. Ray by
name, through the immense crowd
around the depot to a 'bus, which car
ried us to the depot of the train for
Chattanooga. We wvere'informed that
the time changes at Atlanta one hour,
and while we reached the latter place
at 10.30 we had one hour to stay In
the city and would leave at 10.80 p. mn.
We are sorry we can give your
readers no description of this magnifi
cent city; we only spent one hour in
it, and that hour at night, and, there
fore, have a very meagre idea of its
vastness. The transfer omnibus was
crowded with a family of negroes
goin tothedarkies' promised Iland,
LiteRck. The man of the party
was somewhat communicative, and
gave me the Information that he had
been out WVest for years, had secured a
situation with a furniture house at
thirty dollars a month, out of which
lhe had saved enough to come back for
his family, which he then had with
him. The first class coach on this
road to Chattahooga was pretty rough
looking, not as good as our second
class cars on the Charlotte, Columbia
& Augusta Railroad; but as there
were only three or four passengers
(our darkey friends traveling second
class), we had plenty of room, and
settled down as best we could f or a
night's rest. We are somewhat famous
as a good sleeper, having slept soundly
all night after the earthquake, and
though rolling along at a rapid pace,
and in a not very comfortable bed, we
knew nothing until daylight, when
we awoke to find ourselves nearing
Chattanooga. Here we found a nice,
convenient waiting-room, and had the
satisfaction of a good wash. After
getting ciuders and coal-dust ont of
our eyes we felt considerably re
freshed, and enjoyed -a cup of good,
strong coffee, which, for ten cents, we
edded to our morning meal taken n.om
our lunch basket.
Having a stay of some time--three
hours-we sauntored around to take
In the city. Just outside of the wait
ing-room door were large placards, on
which wore printed in promninent
letters, "Beware of Pickpockets,"
"Thieves Around Here." Near the
window was a ple of Buckeye mow.

and about the same in width. -On the
front of the depot was a notice forbid

to enter the building for the purpose
of soliciting customers. I do not
