II J 1 Ii Lyncliburif und thence through East Ten
it N nessee to ChHttunoojra has put us In posses
II f elon of some facts of high Interest
f F The first and most Impressive Is tho dis
appearance uf nil traces of the civil war I
I there was any region which was utterly de
vastated hooftrninplod and bnttlefcnrred
It Fait fax Not fence left

fL 1 I Chattanoogawith the region around about
was In n similar condition Almost every
foot of tho broad and beautiful basin In
t hip which that town is situated had been con
II i verted Into earthworks of one sort or
I Ii 1 another There were fort on every point of
I a prominence mil rifle pits edged tho plain
and traversed It hither and thither On tho
r northern slope of Mission Ridge no availa
ble tree bcurcely D shrub had been let I
standing
I j J Yet not n vestige of war can now b seen
II either In the vicinity of Washington or the
I j vicinity of Chattanooga or In any part of the
country Intervening hotly and often as
much of It vas fought for by the opposing
ill l armies Nature and the hand of man have
I 1 erywhore wrought a miracle of oblitera
111 tion Now groves have sprung up and a
I fairer sight cannot be seen upon earth than
i creels tho traveller from over hilltop and
valley of the long line between the two cities
A still greater wonder Is the kind of agri
culture that Is now witnessed In these old
slave States Formerly under the system
f slavery many of tho farms had dilapidated
desultory und often a lazy shiftless look
but this Is s no longer A broken neg
lected poor fence Is not t b seen between

skill and prosperity mark tho whole coun

Tho Proposed Codo of Evidence
f Tho announcement comes from Albany
i t i that tho Governor who has twenty days
If Etlll left In which to exercise the veto power
rl has referred to tho AttorneyGenernl for his
opinion all the bills passed by the late Legis
lature amending the various code
r i His to bo presumed that he will consult
I the same 0111 In roHjiect to tho merits of the
i bill entitled An Act to Establish a Code of
I Evidence This moniiio waspsshod toward
I the clo o of the session and wo believe com
pnrntlvely few Inwycis nio aware of tho fnct
that It got through the Legislature at nil It
r Is so full of errois and the changes which It
mnkes In tho exiting law of evidence are so
it objectionable that we trust the Attorney
I General will teport adversely upon it but
whotlur ho Iur or not the Governor who
11 has himself enjoved I long experience ns nn i
t active and biicceshful lawyer will ho fully
I justified in withholding his approval
I Tho arguments In favor of adopting nCodo
i of Evidence mo HIT different from those
which nro applicable to eodesembodying the
1 positive law llins when tho Icnal Code
was pioposcd It WIIH urged in favor of that I
I measure that It would enable the people to I
1 ascertahrt by icfcience to I elnglo statute
1 which could lo printed In n hmiill volume
just what nctta wcio tot bidden by the
criminal law of the State Tho peo
ple it wits Kilcl oven more than tho I
lawyers woio interested In this information
But a Code of Evidence Is designed mainly
for the guidance of lawyers In court It I
must consist of n sot of ules for tho use of
tho legal nolVrv > im in the t I trIal of cases and
should at all rviiittt bo Intelligible to law II
yers rurthei inoie If tho authors of such I
code attempt to hlato time liw I of Idonie as
It i now exists they should 6tnt It conectly
Wo nro assured that the Code of Evidence
now before time Governor Is i neitherclonr nor
correct eo fur us It endeai orb to set forth time
IlUtlng law and Unit It abounds In objcc
imitable piuvl lonsco fnrns it pi o lilt for I

CominUbiontiB by whom tliiit codo UI pro

I tiielr I notes In rcfcielico to time work
which notes tire nlmoat essential to n com
1 pitihunslon of Its truo character nnd of tho
t changes which It would make In the law
t We did not then attempt any criticism of the
codo itself Many of Its provisions have

J city whoso jeport concluded will u deilnra
Uon that the enactment of the pleBelt bill
for codifying llio law of ovldcuuo would
I b In the highest degree Inexpedient
Among the lawyers who premred thiS
report are Mr JAMKH C CAIITEII who
was BO conspicuously mentioned as lit t L
appointed Chief Justice of tho Supremo
Court of tho United States when tho last va
cancy occurred Mr WILMAM G CIIOATB
formerly Dlsti let Judge of tho United States
In tilE city and Mr WILLIAM 1 lions
jinowrn one of tho most prominent
men among the younger members of
the Now York bar Wo cnnnot review
In detail or even enumoiaUj tho objec
tions to tho propobcd ode of Evidence hlch
theho gentlemen and their fwsoclnlos point i
out In tho pamphlet bcfoio us and enforce
by cogent nrgumenls nnd illustrations but
tho fact that so many strong olijections can
bo urged ngnltibt It by lawyers of buch
standing ability anti eipeiienco bid catcI4
Hint time work of tho cciIflris tins been too
Imperfectly done t bo accepted
Some years ago the advocates of nil sorts
of codlllcnllon attempted topecuro support
for their various schemes in the Legislature
by proclaiming that they vein In the Inter
est of tim people nu distinguished from tho
interest of thin lawyers and this was one of
the arguments Ubed to bring about tho
adoption of tho renal Code I wns not
mnny months however before tho Penal
Code on account of home of Its prov Ulons
In respect lo the observance of Sun lY anti
others In regard to conbplinclef boonmo
a very prominent object of popular dislike
Instead of commanding popular approval
I nnd the people aro now rather dleposed to
dlritrust those who make themselves promi
I nent In the Legislature isndvocntrsof codes
I of any sort So far Ill this Code of Evidence
is concerned It hit no popularsupport
ever nnd very little support In the legal pro
fession Us enactment has been piomoted
by the influence of Inwbook publlnherB to
whom newcodo increase of
whol a new coe brings a largo Ilcnao
business In consequence of the demand
which nt once necessnrily springs up for tho
books containing the statute Itself and notes
and commentaries upon It
l Is very doubtful Indeed whether wo
need a Code of Evidence nt nil In this State
but If one is required it should be a great
deal better than the bill now before the Gov I
ernor The approval of this memuure will
only result In creating new embarrabsmonts
for courts nnd lawyers In the administration
of justice nnd consequently in Imposing ad
ditional burdens upon litigants by reason of
tho Increased expense to which they will b
subjected
The Seven Classes of Mr Yeamnn I
Attention has frequently boon directed to
the dlfllcultlrs attending a tariffsmashing I
canvass They arc tolerably well under I
stood and remembered by tho Democrats
of New York Lust any ono should be so I
far forgetful of theh extent and number ns
to become exultantly sanguine and joyous
the Reform Club of tariff smashers has been
listening to nu nddicss by Mr Gionon 1
YEAMAX containing It would appear n
much larger share of common senso than is I
usually heard in that quarter
Wo are not Informed what measures have
been taken by the llefoim Club to dispel
tho dark shades of gloom or t dlniinlbh
the overpowering melancholy caused by
tIme truly piteous picture drawn by Mr
YEAMAN according t whom time outlook is
oven blacker than any ono had supposed
He groups the opponents of tariff smashing
In seven classes
First of nil nro tho manufacturers Of
these ho says hopelessly Manifestly they
aro not to bo reasoned with
Next como the worklugmen tho pros
pects with thorn are bettor but they tire still
a barrier to be overcome nnd are evidently
inimical to the twisters
Tho third class nro tho farmers They
seem t b perhaps tho greatest stumbling
block of nl Mr YEAMAN Bays The prai
ries tho remote valleys and the hillsides
where tho moral fervor of tho better age of
Republicanism was grafted on tho tariff traditions
ditions of Whlggerywlll prove tho last ditch
of an honest voting support of an Indiscrim
mate protective policy I What YKAMAN pro
poses In order t demolish this opposition
Is t send the truth about tariff oppression
broadcast over tho praliles tho valleys and
the hlllsidob Hut that Is 1 just what tho r i
formcis have been doing for sonio tIme past
The more tariff llluratuio they bend out tho
let effect It produces so that time last ditch
of tho farmers Is piobnbly I good way off
and as tho reformers approach I It booms
constantly t recede
When you take from the voting popula
tion of a country Its manufacturers its
worUlngrnon and llo farmers jou do not
leave much i but this coiisldfiitloii could not
detor YIHMAS from his pitiless onumointiou
fun fourth clans ho bart is i composed of
sincere citizens who still han faith In the
teachings of llKNKV CAY lIt does not
explain where Ihcsi individuals ate domi
ciled or what they urn like when discovered
I
Certainly CIAYH State Kentucky contains
but fow of them but they mut amount I
to n great deal In the United States to
justify timno adjectives Upright patriotic
sincere almost superstitious Happily for
thorn however they nio l get no docu
ments As Y IAN hiiys You need waste
none of your arguments on these When
the change comes thoy will go gloomily to
their graves In tho t melancholy and bincero
conviction that t their country Is ruined
This btiitomnnt J I somewhat confused but
the natural inforenco to bo I drawn from it lo I
Hint If the change iloowt come they will
go jauntily to their graves In tho merry
and gladsome conlldunco that their coun
try Id I saved
Iho fifth class of the opponents of free
trade li I maim up ota sprinkling of Itvpub
llcans enlightened conwientlous men who
thoioughly bellovn In tariff refoim but who
do not belle o In tho UojiKMtntio party I
a clmiigo In i custom bclicdulos lin its only
mission wo do not wonder at them greatly
Despite thilr enlightenment It appears that
theirh Ifc a hopolccs CIO > Sendsays YUA
lAS your argumunts to tho fons of these
sires This Miggoatlon recalls lho case of
tho tramp who having been elected by a
farmer imm Ills homo and I thrown violently
out upon the i ond legalned his feet and dolled
the farmers giiudmothor to overcome him
Thn sixth clns of stead opponents of
tariff pmnshing Is l made up of those who are
bhiewil I intelligent I and who I sincere
would be progressive They sniff tho breeze
flom ufur and steer their plank straight to
tho top of tim wave YEAMAN Is hopeful of
their until adhesion They are the hateful
politicians who insist on belonging t tlio
majority
Concerning time fovcnth ells a certain de
gien of curiosity U I pnidonablo Who are Its
member 1 YEAMAN answers frankly
They are the Democrats Tho Democrats
neither united bold nor fearless on the
question are opposed to genuine ginanil

closely to the present District Court districts and
made tip of several wards joined together The last
election of time kind was In 1S4JO aid bad the various
Judge then chosen served out their respective terms
