HILL BEFORE P?SLIO Ml
Address to the Pioneers of Niagara
Comfy H. Y.
Ex-Senator David 6. Hill Has
Something to Say About Lynch?
ing, "Spectacularism," Ficti?
tious Prosperity anJ "the
Olcott Beach, N. Y., Aug. 19.-From
twenty to thirty thousand people at?
tended the annual picnic of the Niag?
ara County Pioneers' Association to?
day. The morning was taken up with
a business meeting of the Association,
? followed by a reception to Ex-Senator
David B. Hill.
An immense crowd - gathered at the
open air theatre, where the exercises
of the day were held.
Attorney General Cuneen was the
- first speaker. He extoled the indus?
try, intelligence and character of the
pioneers of Western New York. Mr.
Cuneen then paid a tribute to Senator
Hill, who was the next spaeker.
Mr. Hill in opening discussed "Mob
Law Versus Due Process of Law."
"Mob violence is not rendered less
objectionable if it be true, as frequent?
ly asserted, that unies it shall inter?
pose its strong arm the guilty may es?
cape punishment through a lax ad?
ministration of the criminal law or
indifference to its enforcement on the ?
part of the people themselves. The
very excuse offered is a reflection on the
community itself where the crime has
been committed, and the remedy lies,
not in the people themselves overrid?
ing the law, but in the people uphold?
ing and enforcing the law and in an ap?
peal to their patriotism, their good
sense, their innate love of justice and
respect for order-qualties which are
seldom if ever invoked in vain. We
cannot permit this Government to be?
come a monocracy, which acts upon
impulse, feels no restraint and re?
cognizes no appeal from its hasty pre?
."Crimes which can only be punished
by such irresponsible tribunals as
mobs might as well not be punished at
all ; because, in the end, the remedy
will be found to be worse than the
The duty of every American citizen
.who loves his country and its free in?
stitutions is plain. He should assist
in the creation of a healthy public
sentiment, which should demand j
that no person charged with crime j
shall be punished therefor except un?
der due process of law and by lawful
officials and under a trial before a
Court and juryy as provided by the
wise and beneficent provisions of our
Federal Constitution, and these vital
provisions, so essential to the public
welfare, most be respected in every I
?part of our domain and wherever our I
.Americian fag shall permanently
afloat; and every man, whether white
or black, native or foreign born, rich
or poor, educated or unlettered, must
\ye protected in his life and liberty. '
^Caking up another subject, Mr. Hill
"The tendency of the times is to?
wards indulgence in that peculiar
species of sensational performance
which may be characterized in general
terms as ' spectacularism, ' if I may be
permitted to coin that word.
"Spectacularists usually affect su?
periority over other people; in the
matter of patriotism they desire to be
regarded as the only true patriots ; they
assume to possess all the virtues, while
other people, in their estimation, pos?
sess all the vices. They abhor slience
and obscurity. They assert the com?
monest kind of self-evident proposi?
tions, which have become moss-covered
from age, with an emphasis as though
- they were oracles, and as though their
platitudes be original.
"They have their press agents, who,
unsolicited, supply the newspapers
gratuitously with the details of what
they do each morning, noon and night,
as though the world was holding its
breath for fear that something would
escape it pertaining to themselves.
If they happen to hold a public office
they are delighted to see their small?
est public acts paraded, magnified
and applauded. They are sure that
there was never before such public offi?
cials as themselves-so earnest, so
honest, so self-sacrificing. They med?
dle, with everfytbing, whether within
or without their oflL-iai jurisdiction
and usually muddle everything with
which they have anything to do.
"Spectacularism, as here interpret?
ed is a sort of disease-it expands
the head and contracts the conscience,
. and may appropriately be called ego?
mania, which is another name for
"The hope of the country li es inthe
great mass of cool, deliberate and con?
servative citizens which oppose their
aversions and perform their duties
unostentatiously, and entertain sincere
convictions cf their life's work. They
neither delight in war, in contention,
nor in unnecessary strife. They carry
no chip upon their shoulders, always
looking for trouble. Their ways are
ways of pleasantness and their paths
are peace, and they believe that
righteouso.es, more than the triumphs
of war, exalteth a nation."
Mr. Hill discussed "fictitious versus ?
real prosperity' as follows:
h "There is a chorus of assertion,
constantly reiterated, that the conn- j
try at the present time is enjoying a
period of much prosperity. Yet there
are grave reasons for doubting the en?
tire correctness of the statement. It is
conceded that many public works are
in progress of construction and many
important enterprises are in process of
development, but the fact must be
borne in mind that most of these
schemles are being floated upon bor?
rowed capital-that the future is be?
ing largely mortgaged-and that pro?
fits to hereafter accrue and dividends
to be hereafter declared are already be?
ing anticipated, and there is no" ad?
herence to the good old-fashioned and
safe doctrine of paying as you go."
The country has been surfeited with
the issue of various stocks and bonds
which have been palmed off upon a
confiding public under the promise ^2
profits-never earned and not likely to
be earned, until a financial reaction
has set in, which has disturbed pub?
lic confidence, inaugurated a falling
market, and temporarily, at least, even
if not for some time to come, prevent?
ed safe financial investments and the
end is not yet
"Commercial centres seem to be
looking to Congress for some sort of
financial relief, the exact nature of
which is not stated twice alike. You
will recall the fact that it was only a
few years ago when there arose a de?
mand for the repeal of the Sherman
silver law,. on the ground that silver
was to cheap or too plentiful to war?
rant its continued coinage as money
metal, and compulsory silver purchases
were accordingly stopped, and properly
so : and soon thereafter arose a clamor
upon Congress for the creation of a
single gold standard, because better
money was said to be desired, and the
single gold standard, such as it was,
was duly enacted and the financial
millennium was freely predicted ; and
now, when a falling market is de?
preciating values and wrecking for?
tunes, we are told that we must im?
mediately have additional financial
legislation providing for what the next
Speaker of the House of Representative
has recently described, or dubbed, as
a "rubber currency,' The question is
presented whether this proposed mea?
sure is in the interest of the people or
otherwise. We are informed that its
details are not yet wholly perfected,
but it is announced that its principal
feature is in substance and effect an
authorization of the loaning by the
Government to national banks of the
surplus in the treasury of the United
States upon 'approved" securities.
"The financial situation will indeed
be desperate when such expedients as
loaning the people's money to corpora?
tions are suggested rather than reliev?
ing the people from the taxation which
has produced the accumulation of the
surplus, and which accumulation was
largely caused the present congestion
in the money market."
EQUAL TM SI
Features of the Problem Before
Columbia, Aug. 18.-At the recent
session of the General Assembly, after
killing all pending legislation rela?
tive to taxation, a con?urent resolu?
tion was introduced and adopted look?
ing to the appointment of a special
commission to inquire into the best
plan of getting the State upon a cash
basis and of adjusting the taxes for
the State. This commission was duly
appointed and consists of Senators
Mower and Manning and Representa
aves Moses, Tatum and Thomas.
The commission was appointed after
due consideration ana the best pos?
sible selections were made. The com?
mission held its first meeting tonight,
but the individual members have de?
voted a great deal of time and atten?
tion to the entire tax problem and will
be in excellent shape to accomplish
the very best results.
That the commission has a most im?
portant and serious work is recognized
by everyone. The manifest inequality
of the assessment of taxable property
has been time and again emphasized
and brought officially to the atten?
tion of the General Assembly.
That there is now plenty of law on
the statute books is admitted by all,
and members of the commission are
free to admit that if the existing laws
were execrated there would be no trou?
ble, but that tax officers have gotten
into a certain rut and unless there is
a change in th? law nothing will be
done, and it may be that the commis?
sion may take this view of the matter.
The tax question is by far the most
important that will come up at the
approaching session of the General
Assembly, but whether anything will
be really done it is difficult to fore?
tell. The general practice has been to
kill everything on the subject.
One great and crying evil of the tax
system, and which will hardly come
within the province of the commis?
sion, is the utter x incompetency and
political fear of county auditors and
treasurers. A great mistake was made
when these offices were put in the pri?
mary, and the pity is that there seems
to be no way to get them ont of the
system. It is to be supposed that the
people of a county would select the most
competent and active men for county
auditor and county treasurer. Such is
sometimes the case, but generally
speaking the primary system lias not
so resulted in mest- counties. Business
men will not in many cases consent to
go through a campaign such as is held
in many counties, and the result is
that some man utterly incompetent,
with one arm or one leg, and with
large connections and political pulls,
will get the office. The result is that
the office goes to the bow-wows and
good results are not obtained. Take
this county, for instance. Mr. W.
Hampton Gibbes was recently ap?
pointed to the office. What did he do?
In a year's time be has, by his activity
and knowledge, added a million dol?
lars to the tax books. In Aiken and a
few other counties good auditors are
elected as a result of the primay, but
if the offices were filled with regard
to competency and not with regard to
political pull and the like, more prop?
erty would get on the tax books and
better values would be obtained. The
law never contemplated that these
offices should be in the primary, and
they are now and have always been ap?
pointive, and it is merely a custom
that the suggestions of the primary
are equivalent to elections.
The present tax laws and any other
law that might be devised must de?
pend very lagely upon the county
It will be one of the most difficult
tasks that the commission will have to
suggest some practical way to pre?
vent one farmer being allowed to re?
turn his farm lands at 82.50 an acre,
and his neighbor being made to pay
taxes on practically the same class of
lands at $10 per acre.
It will be most fortunate if the com?
mission can get access to the records
that were filed with this State board
of equalization at its meeting in 1902,
showing the result of the careful in?
quiry made as to the valuation of farm
lands as related to the assessed valua?
tions. The facts were from the re?
Very many and very varied have
been the plans that have been suggest?
ed by which the State can get addi?
tional taxes. Some suggest a State
license system, with a franchise tax ;
others say that if all clasess of property
were put on the books at 100 cents on
the dollar the State would be able to
remain on a cash basis.
The members of the commission j
have been studying the tax laws of ?
many other of the States, and hope to j
get up some plan that will prove sat- j
isfactory to all interests.-News and
EDISON'S NEW SCHEME.
Talking Machine That Does the
Work of Many Women.
Orange, N. J., Aug. 20.-Thomas A.
Edison has just perfected a new phono?
graph1 which he believes will simplify
the recording and reproduction of tes?
timony and dictation. Two of the ma?
chines have been turned out and
operated succesfully. One operator
can do the work of eight under the
new system. Although no larger than
ordinary phonographs, the new device
is different in many particulars. The
record is about nine inches long and
about one half an inch thick and is
capable of taking from eight to nine
letters or ordinary length. It can be
shaved 175 times, making its cost no
more than the cheapest paper. The
machine is operated by electricity.
After the person dictating has finish?
ed his work, the typewriter operator
takes the record and transfers it to a
phonograph at his desk. When he
touches a stud or button with his foot
the machine immediately begins to re?
produce, lt is not difficult to operate
the machine. After a sentence or
phrase is completed release of the pres?
sure stops the apparatus, and when the
words are written pressure is applied
or another instalment as much as the
operator can easily remember. Should
it become necessary to repeat parts
of the letter a conveniently arranged
lever, which, when not used for the
? purpose, acts as a lift for the repro?
duction, runs the record backward, so
it will repeat practically a word at a
; time after the manner of similar me?
chanism on the typewriter.
New Use for Injunction.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Aug. 15.-A
case with peculiar and sensational
feature has been instituted in the State
Circuit Court in this city by Manion
Bapp, a prominent farrmer residing in
the northern portion of the county.
The defendant is William Shepherd, at
present a resident of Trinidad, Col.
Bapp asks that the Court grant him
an injunction restraining Shepherd
from alienating the affections of Mrs.
Mrs. Bapp was formerly the wife of
Shepiierd, but secured a divorce and
married again, and now Bapp thinks
the former husband would like to get
her back again. Shepherd and a
brother of his former wife recently
appeared at Bapp's home and endeavor?
ed to induce Mrs. Bapp and her child
to accompany them back to her old
home in Colorado.
As a result of their efforts Bapp had
the two men arrested on the unique
charge of attempting to steal his wife
and child. Before this case came up
for preliminary hearing it was with?
drawn and Bapp commenced the snit
in the State Circuit Court, asking
that Shepherd be enjoined from
alienating the affections of Mrs. Bapp.

A good story was told by the Earle
of Yarmouth, who recently marrried
Miss Tham of Pittsburg, on his return
to England. One evening shortly be?
fore their wedding the nobleman and
his bride-elect were the guests at a

Pittsburg family. Tin meal was en
famile and the Little nine-year-old
daughter of the host was the earl's

eyes off his lordship's face, and finally
"Are you a real English lord?"
The nobleman, laughing, said that
he was. The little girl, after a few
moments of silence, said thoughfully :
"I never saw an English lord before
and I have always been so anxious to
see a real one."

THE COMING A1B SHIP.
Prof. Langley's Aerodrome-Its Ultimate
Practicability Undoubted by Scientists
-A Partial Description of the Aerial
(By F. Prescott-Bullock. )
Since the assurred success of the
Marconi system of wireless telegra?
phy, the eyes and attention of not
only scientists, but of the world at
large have been directed toward those
who are supposed to be perfecting the
coming air ships, which will in the
near future entirely revolutionize
traffic. In the eastern hemisphere are
numerous aspirants for the honor of in?
venting a practical, working, ever
ready vehicle that will transport pas?
sengers in any desired direction re?
gardless of atmospheric disturbances,
and in ope or two instances, it does
seem as if their labor was about suc?
cessful, but here in the United States
we have a man who for the past twen?
ty years has devoted his time and in?
ventive genius toward reproducing the
essentials of bid flight as nearly as
practicable in a mechanical device.
This man, Professor S. P. Langley of
the Smithsonian Institute is no vision?
ary inventor, but in his chosen field
of astronomy is recognized as the fore?
most man of science in this country.
His present experiments are conducted
for the United States Government, and
Mr. Thwing, a millionaire, of Pitts?
burg, is as far as finance goes in the
undertaking, having already expended
over one hundred thousand dollars,
while the war department has expend?
ed $70,000, upon his present large ma?
chine. On the eighth of this month
a fifteen foot model of this machine
was tried upon the Potomac river for
a distance of six hundred yards, and
it is asserted that from the* informa?
tion derived during the model's flight

Prof. Langley has adopted the bird
as his model, but with improvements,
as it was apparent to him that a flying
machine to be of practical value must
be heavy enough and powerful enough
to drive straight^across or against and
in and out of the" strongest winds. No
one but Prof. Langley and his assist?
ants know the details of his inven?
tion, but what he has done to im?
prove upon the bird is to keep the
wings in a rigid soaring position, the
working power not coming from them,
but from propellors directly behind
the wings. To describe it in as few
words as possible: it is built to carry
six passengers. The engine of twenty
horse power weighs only forty-seven
pounds. The machine is built largely
of aluminum, the body of the car be?
ing twenty-five feet long, by six wide
and eigh feet deep. The car tapers at
each end and has numerous windows.
The main room is fitted out with ham?
mocks, cooking utensils and other
comforts. Back of this is another
room where liquefied air is deveolped,
furnishing power to the engine, sup?
plies fresh air for the car, and acts
as a refrigerant for the food needed on
a voyage, besides reproducing itself in
sufficient quantities to increase rather
than decrease its bulk and power. The
engine is expected to drive the aero?
drome at tlie rate of 100 miles per
hour, and also run a dynamo, which
will supply a current for lighting and
cooking purposes. The paddle wheels
are on each side of the car, are 5 feet
6 inches in diameter, and are made of
aluminum with steel braces. Above
the wheels and running ia a curve
from one end of the machine to the
other are the wings or sails extend?
ing twenty-four feet from the car. In
the stern is fixed a double rudder, one
for the purpose of raising or lowering
the air ship, and the other to steer it
to the right or left.
Should Prof. Langley succeed with
his aerodrome, although at present
secretary of the Smithsonian Insti?
tute, and holder of honary degress
from the highest universities at home
and abroad, he will die famous as hav?
ing solved the question of aero?
dynamics. Prof. Langley was born in
New England sixty-nine years ago.

Late Corn Improving-Merchants Expect
Big Trade This Fall.
Magnolia, Aug. 19.-The seasons for
late corn are every thing the farmers
could wish, and if they had absolute
control of the seasons they could not
improve on it as regards its effects on
late corn ; but cotton is getting en?
tirely too much water, and will, no
doubt, throw off lots of its frui?.
But, it can lose one third of its fruit
and then, retaining two-thirds, make
a full crop ; for this writer has never
seen better fruited cotton than several
of the farmers in and around Magnolia
have. I could name the farmers around
here who have such fine cops, but in
