W. A. ReGONA1,
W. L. McDONALD" m .
AFTER one of the most remarkable
campaigns in the history of Southern
politics Atlanta has gono "wet."
Prohibition has been defeated on the
very field whore it had boon claimed
that it was most successful.
Tua present Legislature will have
its hands full. It will be well for the
people if it should be able to learn
early in the session that its principal
duty lies on the line of destroying a
number of more or less stupendous
Tun Governor, in his message to the
Legislature, recommends the estab
mont of a reformatory for juvenile
criminals. If the Governor had called
the institution a college instead of a
"reformatory" the Legislature might
have adopted the suggestion.
Tne proposition that the State finish
the canal is one which will hardly be
adopted at this time; nor will the
alternative which is being pressed upon
the Legislature, to give the thing
away, be seriously entertained. The
State has spent $175,000 on this enter
prise, and has learned that it ought
never to have undertaken the thing.
It is too much, however, to ask the
State to give away the whole concern.
A member from one of the moun
tain districts, Mr. Davenport, has
been trying to get the Legislature to
include the "possum" in the game
laws. Mr. Davenport, if we are not
mistaken, pressed his measure on the
Legislature at the last session unsuc
cessfully, but to the amusement of his
fellow-members. That body had no
sooner convened in 'its present session
than the gentiman was "possum"
hunting again. The benevolence of
his soul has gone out to the "possums"
in their lonely walks in the dark.
Mr. Davenport ought to learn the
name of the marsupial which ho seeks
to protect and then go home.
The Governor recommends the pas
sage of an Act providing for local tax
ation to extend the school term. The
recommendation should be ."pigeon
The whole doctrine of local toxation
is wrong to begin with; it is funda
mentally at variance with all the prin
ciples of the common law. It has
been the boast of the English-speaking
race for centuries that taxation could
be Iiposedi upon the people only by
the popular branch of the Legislature.
In England no revenue bill can origi
nate in the House of Lords, nor can
the Senate of the United States, nor
the Senate of any State in the Union
orIginate such a bill. Tbo power to
levy taxes is the prerogative of the
Hfouse of IfReprentatives alone. The
principle has passed into the enduring
form of a constitutional guarantee.
The Legislature should not shirk its
duty ; if in its judgment the taxes for
school purposes should be raised, lot
it raise them. It is for this that the
members are elected and sent to Col
umbia. The local taxation dodge is
one of the devices of a ime-serving
age. It is too much to have the great
right of property committed to the
final wisdom of a township mob.
The Honnestead Law.
The Legislature ought not to foget
to submit to the people at the next
election a proposed amendment to the
Constitution abolishing th6 homestead
There are many reasons why it
should be abolished; it is dishonest to
begin with; it Is an easy house of
refuge for dishonest traders. It may
sound like a platitude, but it is none
the less true, that no people can per
manently prosper who habitually set
at defiance the common princIple of
honesty In the ordinary transactions of
There are also other reasons why
the homestead law should be abolished.
It deprives the poor man of his credit.
The small farmer: Who owns nine
hundred dcllars' worth of land and
four hundred dollars' worth of per
sonal property, has no standing in the
commercial world, for the simple rea
eon that the arm of the law is not
long enough to reach him, if after
having been trusted he should become
disposed to act dishonestly. The law
deprives of credit the very class of
people who most need credit--the
small proprietors. I4 necessitates the
lien law and long prices, from be
- neath the ehadow of which no indus
try has ever struggled..

The request of the directors of the

business-like way of conducting the
Institution. It will lend indeed to in
creased efficiency and economy in its

(Netaberry Observer.) 1i
The State has already spent, in 8
money and labor, about $176,000 on
the canal. Now it is proposed, by .
Columbia, that the State turn over the
canal to the city and give her in addi
tion, about $50 000 in convict labor;
in return for which the city is to allow
the State 1,000-horse power. It is not
stated, and we do not know, how
much horso power the State has
The propositlon appears to us, from
the limited knowledge we have of the
subject, about as follpws:
Total estimafed cost of the
canal when completed. ....*4 ,000
The State has already spent..$176,000 e
The Strte is asked to spend fur
ther, in labor... ......... 50,000
Total by the State.......$225,000 5
Columbia proposes to expend. 200,000 b
According to Major Lee's estimate, F
the canal completed will have 10 000
horse power. So that while the Atate r
spends $226,000 and the city $200 000, a
the city is to have nine-tenths of the a
water power and the State only one
The price of water power at the
Augusta canal is furnished to lessees
at65 per horse power. If that should
be the price at the Columbia canal,
the State would derive, say, $5,000 a
year and the city $45,000. See? The
State expends $226,000 and gets $5,000
a year in horse power; the city ex
ponds $200,000. and gets $45,000 in
Thisla a pretty bold proposition.
Prof. Lowanda's Grand Festival
(Ntoes and Courier, Novenber 13th, 1887.)
The Academy of Music was packed
from parquet to gallery last night to I
witness the second performance of
Prof. Lowanda's company. Every
p art of the varrd programme was
faithnully parried out to the great I
satisfaction of the entire audience, and
the numerous tricks performed were
frequently applauded. One of the
best parts of the performance last '
night was the "Talking Human Skull"
which was both a wonder and an
amusement to everybody. The com
pany is a good one and deserves the 'l
patronage of the public everywhere.
A large number of beautiful presents
were given away, and some of the
silverware was handsomeand elegant. i
Prof. Lowanda is exceedingly exact in
carrying but his promises and he said
last night that if he could purchase a
cow and also a horse and buggy, he F
would give them away to-night in the
same manner as the othier presents
have been~ distributed. The price of
tickets has been reduced to 25 cents to E
aypart of the theatre. A good house
wildoubtless greet Prof. Lowanda
both at the matinee and also to-night.
The gifts last night were of the finest
quality. Mr. W. M. H1il1 drew the set
of walnut ihrniture; Mr. M. B. Harri
son drew the silver ice pitcher; Mr.
T. E. Daiwich drew the slver fruit
stand, and the lady's gold watch fell1
to the lot of' Miss Mary Cancions.
