hiRlrntlon tn the matter of "A. B and C."
In their "3I.O0O each." A Invest bis S1.000 in
a manufacturing establishment, B his In
land, nnd C in a government bond. Is It
just that A and B should be taxed on their
Investment, and that C should not be taxed
on his? As matters stand to-day, the In
vestment of C Is far the preferable, and more
remunerative of the three. If the Invest
ment of A and B, by good management and
profits, should Increase to S2.000 each In the
course of time even as high as to "9.000"
wouldn't thev bo taxed on tbeiucreased val
uation 1 Anil wouldn't It be right and just,
and but In keeping with the genius of our
Institutions t Brownville Advertiser.
This Is tho universal statement of the
popblsm that debt is property. But suppose
the government that Issues the bond collap
ses and don't pay, where Is C's 31,000? And
until it does pay, O has nothing but a prom
ise to pay. Now, A and B gave actual prop
erty for actual property, and there was no
fictitious Increase of wealth made by the ex
change. But If you tax C's bond you have
simply doubled the tax on tho original 81,000,
which Is all tho property Involved. But sup
pose that C's bond was a contract to deliver
him a four year old horse in twenty years
from date, with a certain amount annually
for Interest or use, in exchange for a four
year old horse that the government had
bought of him with this promise. The gov
ernment afterwards trades this horse- to a
citizen In exchange for something It needs,
and it Is taxed, and C's paper horso, which Is
still unborn, Is also taxed to tho same
amount! Substituting dollars, which the
government expects to get sometime in the
future and pay to C, for the nnborn foal, does
not change tho principle. To tax either is
an absurdity. State Journal.
The dodge that "the goTernment
that issues the bond may collapse," j
will not answer as a reply to the
principle involved in this discussion.
It is not even a fair supposable case
is in no wise probable, .and scarcely
possible. In such an event neither
the investment of A, B and C would
bo worth a fig, aud there would be
nothing In reality to tax nothing to
tax for no government to be support
ed, or people, or property to be pro
tected. Hence tbero is nothing in
The other point as to tho "four3Tear
old horse," and "unborn foal," re
minds us of the story of tho old maid
who never had a child, nor a prospect
of having one, but becamo fearfully
exercised and alarnud for fear she
might, and it would fall in the well
The Journal further quotes, and re
marks: The Advertiser says, "With theprlnciplo
attempted to be Illustrated in the foregoing,
we respectfully beg leave to disagree.
The fact is, there is but three thousand In
volved In the JournaVa Illustration, and that,
under our system of taxation, ought to be
taxable." The Advertiser concedes, In this
last sentence, the exact point tho Journal
was endeavoring to maUo.
Then there is no difference between
us. If the Journal concedes that the
$1,000 eaoh of A, B and C ought to be
taxed, that is all we contend for. A,
B and C each have, .as we originally
stated, $1,000 in cash. That, no one
will dispute, should be taxed, under
our Bystem of government. Now, ac
cording to the Journal's theory, if A,
B and C invest their capital, it thus
becomes non-taxable. In this event,
who pa3s tho tax to support govern
ment? Where is the revenue to come
from? The Journal Is not alone In
claiming that no evidence of govern
ment indebtedness is, or should be,
taxable. The bulIionistB and "gold
ringsters," which the Journal claims
to have no more admiration for than
we, hold that greenbacks and national
bond currency are "promises to pay"
evidences of government indebted
ness, and therefore, like bonds, are
not taxable. Concede all this, and wo
ask then, and again, who pays the
taxes? Who supports the govern
ment? Is it the individuals with
more ample means, and who have
more for government to protect? Or,
is it those of limited means, who do
not, and cannot, own government
bonds, or bold greenbacks? Does not
the Journal know that now, in the
matter of bonds, a very large propor
tion of the ready money of the coun
try Invests itself in governmentbonds
a few days before the tax assessor
calls, and in tercon verts itself back in
to greenbacks, gold, or silver immedi
otely after he Is gone? Thus a very
large proportion of the real wealth of
tho country totally evades taxation.
If tho same was held good in the
matter of greenbacks and national
ourrency all evidences of govern
ment indebtedness then all tho real
wealth, nearly, of the land, would bo
non-taxable! Surely, this is not in
keeping with the epirit and genius of
our government; that tho subjeot
should aid in Its support in propor
tion to ability, and protection afford
ed. Wo repeat: it Is the principle
involved we contend for, and argue
To A. Band C again. Itisassumed
of course, that each of their invest
ments are good. There can be noth
ing safer In which to invest than In
government promises to pay. The
best financiers in this and ull other
civilized countries, give Buch Invest
ments preference, and at lower rates
of Interest than any other.

kind of "veto! presto!! ohange!!!"
argument, to show that by reason of
bonds not being taxable, they sold for
more, and thus the people saved
money by the operation ; and that if
It were otherwise "the agricultural
class would pay the principal part of
unjust taxes, and not tho capitalist."
We are not one of tho number who
believes in such doctrine. The re
verse Is too plain to bo seen by every
With some points made by the
Journal in matters of taxation, we
agree. In our own State tho system
of revenue Is all wrong. Much taxa
ble property Is taxed twice Eome
three and four times, and a still great
er proportion evades taxation entire
ly. This condition of of affairs will
continue to exist as long as exemp
tions are provided for in our statutes.

Tho Views of Mr. Colfax.
Schuj'ler Colfax's speech on the
'Hard Times Their Causa and Cure,'
delivered at Beloit on the 5th instant,
which uppeared in our columns yes
terday, is one of great ability and can
dor. He takes among other substan
tially these positions :
1. The chief, though not tho only
cause, for the panic of 1873, was the
overbuilding of railroads, and the en
ormous amount of money they with
drew from other uses. v
2. That the cause of tho continued
financial distress, after four years of
stringency, and the retrenchment and
eoonomies It compelled, is the 'con
stant contraction in the volume of
what was recognized a dozen years
ago as legal tenders,' coupled with the
conviction that what is yet to come at
the date of resumption, next New
Year's a year, is to affect the nation
and its people more disastrously; and
that 'the seventy million contraction
in greenbacksand national bank notes
since January, 1875, as proclaimed In
official tables, has been almost
akin in its effeots to that last straw
that broke the overladen camel's back.'
3. That when tho greenback was
first issued its 'promise to pay' meant
either in gold or silver, or in a nation
al bond of approximate to but not
quite equal to coiu in value. He pro
poses that we return to the old con
tract, and asks, 'Why not now enact
that on the date fixed for re
sumption the government will,
at its option, redeem all green
backs that may be presented in
gold or silver, or a national bond,
whose rate of interest shall render it
approximate to coin in value?' But
he adds, 'I do not believe in any con
traction of our greenbacks ; certainly
not till other legal money shall ade
quately fill their place,' and lio sug
gests that the greenbacks redeemed
shall be paid out again in the redemp
tion of other bonds.
The manifest conclusion to be drawn
from his address is that the govern
ment In contracting thecurrenoy and
diminishing the medium In whioh
debts contracted can be paid must nec
essarily be unjust to the debtor class.
It is those who contracted debts when
currency was abundant, and are oalled
upon to pay when it has been greatly
contracted, and consequently enhanc
ed in value In comparison with other
property, that have tho right to com
plain and demand relief from Con
gress. Mr. Colfax makes this very
plain, and his speeoh Is one that do
serves careful consideration. Inter

Meeting of Mexican Veterans.
CniCAGO, September5. The fourth
annual reunion of Mexican veterans
of Illinois, opened here to-day, some
seventy-five being present, Hand
shakings were indulged in, reminis
cences exchanged and general jollifi

Otis, of Chicago, presided and intro
duced the president, Col. Ferris For
man, who made a brief address recall
ing past pleasures and triumphs and
favored pensions for all survivors.
Col. P. L. Turnley being appointed
marshal for the day, made an address
touching pensions, which was warm
ly applauded. The veterans present
are 49 to 60 years old. To-morrow will
be the business day of the meeting.
Chicago, September 6. The Illin
ois Mexican war veterans held their
second day's session of the annual re
union at the Grand Pacific hotel. Tho
business was chiefly with regard to
securing pensions, fpr which purpose
a committee was appointed to labor
with congress some time ago, but it
not having reported waa discharged
and other committees wereappolnted
to work less directly but more forcibly.
Dinner was bad at 2 :30 and numerous
Mexican dishes wero served. In the
afternoon the name of the association
was changed to "The Veterans of the
Mexican, Florida and Black Hawk
Wars," the latter veterans have been
admitted to fellowship.
The following offlcfirs were elected :
Col. Ferris Forman, President ; Col.
P. T. Turnley. flrRfc vice president;
Capt. John VV. Hartly, seoretary.
Delegates were chosen to the national
convention in Baltimore next Febru
ary. Lieut. Gov. Sherman, Judge
Dickey and others made speeches and
the convention adjourned.
The following facts, recalled by Mr.
Stoughton in his artiolo in the jtforth
American lievieto, are of a kind to jot
down and remember : "Tho register
ed colored vote of Louisiana,'' says
Mr. Stoughton, "on the day of the
election in November last, was 115,
310, to 92,990 white. In forty of the
fifty-seven parishes of tho State, where
no serious intimidation prevailed, in
cluding that of Orleans, which was
largely Democratic the majority of
Republican votes actually cast was 6,
097. Tho remaining seventeen par
ishes contained 20.323 registered col
ored voters, and 10,253 white tbo for
mer, like those In the forty parishes,
being almost exclusively Republican.
Judge Black says the majority of the
votes aotually polled by the Democrat
ic party within the State is admitted
to have been 7,639. Assuming this to
be so, the Democrats must have suc
ceeded, with 16,253 white votes, in get
ting a majority over 20,323 colored, of
13,736. Does he believe this to have
been possible, in face of tho Republi
can majority of 6,097 in forty parish
It is the logio of these facts and fig
ures, thus plainly presented, whicn
has never been met or answered. The
Republican majority In forty parishes
is undisputed. The Republican supe
riority in numbers in the other seven
teen is equally undented. There was
no natural or legitimate reason why
the division in tho latter should be
different from that In the former.
And a candid consideration of these
facts clearly establishes it that Louisi

made an attack upon thepublicscbool
system of the country. An evidence
of the baneful influence of public
school teaching, he said, might be ob
served nightly when young girls of
loose character perambulated the
streets of Newark. If paren ts permit
ted their children to go to public
schools, he would avail himself of his
privilege and publicly denounoe them
from the alter, and if their children
were members of the Anglo-Society
of St. John's he would have them ex
pelled. He would not permit them
to associate with the children at the
churoh, as he feared their contamina
ting influence. He had taken bis
stand and under no consideration
would he recede from it.
We called the attention of tho Chi
cago Times to the fact that in pub
lishing the amounts paid by the vari
ous newspapers for postage it made
the sum paid by the Inter Ocean ap
pear $2,184, instead of $12,144, as It
stands on the records of the postoffioe
Wo asked the Chicago Times to
make the proper correction if the mis
take was an unintentional one. The
Chicago Times Is silent. We there
fore conclude that it lied knowingly,
It was a mean lie, because it was
made with the intention of belittling
our business. It was a silly lie, be
cause it was one which would be de
tected, and nailed to the forehead of
the old rasoal who told it. It was a
forgery, because the dispatch was de
liberately altered in the Times office
and Its meaning grossly perverted.
We submit that this Is "diving
deeper and staying under longer"
than any newspaper man in America
has hitherto attempted.
We publish again the figures from
the books of the postofflce depart
ment, giving the amount paid for
postage during the last year by the
three morning newspapers of Chica
go. The Times and Tribune dare not
dispute these figures, for they are offi
cial and they know it.

Though we would by no means bo under
stood as deprecating, but rather as recom
mending, professional aid In disease, there
are multitudes of instances when it Is neith
er necessary or easy to obtain. A family
provided with a comprehensive household
specific like Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, is
possessed of a medicinal resource adequate
to most emergencies In which medical ad
vice would be otherwise needful. That ster
ling tonic and corrective Invariably reme
dies, and Is authoritatively recommended
for debility, Indigestion, liver disorder, an
irregular habit of body, urinary and uterine
troubles, incipient rheumatism and gout,
and many other aliments of frequent occur
rence. It eradicates and prevents Intermit
tent and remittent fevers, relieves mental
dlspondency, checks prematnro decay, and
Invigorates the nervous and muscular tis
sues. Sleep, digestion and appetite are pro
moted by it, nnd it Is extremely useful In
overcoming tho effects of exhaustion and
exposure . sept
The Sultry Days of Summer.
Hot weather is very exhausting upon the
energies, and its influence renders the sys
tem peculiarly liable to disease. During tho
closo and sultry days of July and August.
Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Cholera Morbus,
Colic, and pains In tho stomach aro common
and fatal diseases. It Is not enough to trust
to a curative when attacked, for It is essen
tial to take measures for their prevention.
An unfailing prevention of all summer
complaints exists In Dr. RadcllfT's Sev
en Seals or Golden Wonder; nnd this stan
dard vegetable preparation is no less effica
cious as a cure. Thousands have used it for
all diseases incident to tho summer solstice,
and always with thohappleat results. Com
plete cures aro effected In the worst cases.
