Those who doubt tbe ability and de

their way, noir that the white people
have given them "a start" in the race
of life, will fiodau argument t) con
vince thorn, in a letter frjm Tmkegee,
Ala., printed on aao'.hr ra?e aad
copied from the New York Tribune
It tells a most gratifying story, and
one that every good maa and woman
.at all concerned for the advancement
of the black race will read with pleas
rje. It is the story of a wiselydirected
baud and the accomplishment oi a
-grandly philanthropic purpose. All
honor to Mr. Washington.
A rrrinoN is in circulation, ad
dressed to tbe president of the Mem
phi) and Charleston railroad, by the
people who reside near Bnntyn Sta
tion, asking tbat a platform and depot
building be erected for the convenience
nd protection of paaeengers and ship
pers. Seventeen years ago the people
erected such structure, but five years
Ago it was destroyed by fire and has
net since been replaced. Greatly
needed as it is, we hope Mr. Fink will
promptly accede to the prayer of tbe
petitioners and order the building and
pla'form to be eree'ed at once. As
much as 50,009 barrels of potatoes
have been shipped from Bnntyn in
one st aeon, and the daily passenger
1st is very large.
The two-thirds rule haibten a prin
cif alone with tbe 'Deffiorj atio party
for several generations and it has been
found to be a safe one. It comes as
near aa is possible to reaching the
whole vote of a convention, and sit s
fies.aa the majority rule never can,
the rights of the minority. It ehould,
therefore, be adhered to as a safe rule.
Ia the county convention which is to
meet on the 21st of next month, it
should be strenuously adhered to.
There is no urgency for a departure
from it and nothing but the necessi
ties of place hunters will suggest it,
and these, where the whole body of
the people are concerned, are un
worthy of a momert'a consideration.
The convention will, we trust, stick to
the time honored two-thirds rule, un
der and by force of which tbe Demo
cratic party has won so many victories.
A MAKurACTCBiR of engines does
not employ a nailmaker to he'p him ;
a shipbuilder does not employ a brick
layer to assist him in his task ; nor
does the shoemaker the tailor. Bridge
building is as diet'net an employment
any of there, and therefore requires
a technical skill and ability peculiar to
Itself. Men are trained to it, just as
they may be trained to house build
ing, to bat making, to cabinet making,
or blackemithing. ' Such a man, an
expert having knowledge of VriJga
'Construction and a practical civil en
gineer, should be employed by tbe
County Court fB' Superintendent of
Bridge Building and no other. The
court in this matter should follow tbe
example of the rai'r. al companies,
who would not think of employing
any other than a civil engineer, a
technical expeit, in the construction
-of any kind of bridje, whether of
i wood, iron, ttael, atone or brick.
J'E very man to his trade," in such a
tase, is a very safe adage.
1 A jfonoN prevails with many per
- sons that the worklngmen's nnions
ud the Knights of Labor are prepar
ing to take an active part in the
.August election?, and that they have
special candidates for two or more of
the offices to be filled at that time.
Nothing could be farther from the
truth. The wjrkingmenV i"ions and
-the Knights of Labor organizations
exist for the opecific object of main
taining agreed rates of wages and
hours 'of labor, and they have noth
ing to do with politics or politicians.
The members of these nnions and
labor organizations are sonn of them
'Republicans, mostcf them Democrats,
-and tbey will vote as their political
principles may lead them. It is safe
ito say, therefore, that every man who
proposes to carry tbe workiegmen's
'vote to either ticket is a fraud who is
n entitled to credence, as one speak
ing wholly and altogether without
.authority. The workingmen have no
t'eketnor will they have any, nor, ad--diliona'Jy
let us say, can they be in--dueed
iy their organized capacity to
have any'liing to do, near or reuiot,
with eitheV political party or with any

Eee'rwtloa of the First Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury
Capital Bote.
Israelii, to Tif arrnai.l
Washington, June 29. William .
Smith, Ai Blatant Secretary of tbe
Treasury, has been offered and will
accept the position of a'.torney of the
St Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba
rti'road at a salary cf 810,003 a year,
with headquarters at tit. Paul. Uis
ti signatioa was a source of great stir-
trriss bera totbess who knew that Mr.
Smith had made plans to stay be-e
during tbe present year. It was
hastened, so reonrt eays, by the disap
proval of the President with Mr.
Smith's course in regard to appoint
ments ana aismimais in tne Treasury
It takes tflec: July 1st. Mr. Smith
will leave at once for St. Paul Gov.
Thompson, of South Carolina, will ba
bis successor, whose name will proba-
Diy De sent to tne senate tomorrow.
At a meeting of the Democratic
members of tne Pao-Elecirio Con
ruh'es list night, it was impveible
for Mr. Boyle, the chairman, and Mr.
Ha'e, the dissenting . D. mocrit ic
meaber, to come to any agreement as
to the union cf reports. Mr. Boyle
said the reports would not bs sub
mitted to tbe House until tomorrow
Tqi re will be three of thess, one by
the Democratic chairman, Mr. Boyle,
which fully exonerates the stock
holders fiom. any impropriety ; tbe
second by Judge Banney, Kepublican,
condensing the trana t on as danger
ous for public men, and a third by Mr.
Hale, of Missouri, a Democrat, taking
middle ground. Mr. Ha e'a report is
perhaps the most significant of tbe
three. It acquits the otlicials impli
cated of aay dishonesty, bat says their
arceptince of stock waa aa impro
priety. Tbe strongest part of his re
port is his conservative criticism of
tbe bringing ol the Government suit,
which, he says, should never be
brought except where the publio in
terests demand it. He sees no neces
sity for bringing suit in this case. His
criticisms upon the large expenditure!
in which tbe Government bas become
involved by not adopting some
such sa'ejnard is the saverest part
of tbe document. He sab
mits tbat it was upon th s
point bs bad his most serious differ
ence with Chairman Boyle. In speak
ing of the opinion of Attorney Gen
eral Garland, given when he wc s a
Senator, as to the validity of tbe
Rogers patents, he saya: "It is only
necessary to say thr.t the opinion of
Attorney General Garland was like
that of any other attorney employed
or retained by an individual. If the
opinion were given or intended to bs
wed in any attempt to sell tbe stcck
cf tbe company and induce outsiders
to become interested either in th?
original Pan-Electric organization or
any of the sub-organizations form 'd
in the different States, without dis
closing at the same time tbe relation
of the author to the company,
it might be heid by many attorneys
to he unprofessional, but certainly it
hed no reference to or connection with
bis then status as a Sena'or. It does
not appear that it wes so intended and
used, or tbat any person wen deceived
or misled by ic In speaking of the
first Memphis suit, afrrr reviewing its
incidents, the report says: ''Wiihout
entering into the merits of the con
troversy it is sufficient to say tbat the
order of the President, nnder all the
circumstances, withdrawing a suit
was, in my opinion, eminently proper
from almost every view that can
bs taken of the law involved
in inch suit." The report ac-
qoita the Solicitor General of any
improper or nnwortny motives in
ordering the suit or of having any
knowledge of Garland's interests in it
or of the interest of the Pan-Electric
Company. Upon tbe subject of the
A'toroey General tbe report says:
"The evidence in my Judgment is
overwhelming and conclusive that he
had nothing whatever to do with it.
On the contrary it is conclusively
established, and without any compli
cating testimony, that when similar
applications were made to mm be tore
he left for his borne in Arkansas, he
emphatically and even sternly re
fused to have anything to do with cr
even talk about the in, giving as a
reason that tie was interested
in the Pan-Electric Company, and
Ciu'd .not in any manner
bs connected ' with such a
snit. In fuct the evideace shows that
after he became Attoinay General he
bad practically nothing to do with the
management of the Pan Electric Com
pany. He says further, that any at
tempt to connect the Attorney Gen
eral with legislation in tbe interest of
a gove romeat suit bas failed. Mr.
Hale says that there is no evidence to
show that any of tbe companies,
through their agents or otherwiae,
sought to influence any of tbe officers
of the government through tbe public
press." For full report see third page.

When ssktd what would be the fate

Tendered Bis BaalarMtlo.
Wasbimotok, June 29. Mr. Wm.
E. Smith, Assis'ant Sece'ary of Ibe
Treasury, has tendered bis resignation
to the President to take eff.ct July
1st next, in order to accept the posi
tion of solicitor for tbe H . Panl, Min
neapolis and Manitoba Railroad Com
pany, with headqaarteis at 8L Pau',
Minn. The President hi selected as
his successor tbe Hon ingh Thomp
son, Governor of Boat i Carolina, and
will send bis nomiuat on to the Sen

to be a man of ability and to be In en
tire accord with the President's policy
on all public auewions. He has been
Prominently identified with the educa
tional interests of his State and is now
serving his second term ts its Gov
ernor. He has rcs:gaed that office
and expects to asaume the duties of
his newoflice as soon as be shall have
be -in confirmed.' Mr. Smith said to
day that hs te'inqnished his present
position voluntarily and with the beet
of feeling towaid tbe Preeident and
his as'ociates, solely in his own inter
ests. Ha is a young lawyer s'ar.ing
out in bis profession and itels that it
would be a disadvantage for him to
remain in the Treasury for three years
longeron a small salary when he could
do so much better outside.

The Ueaeral Deficiency BUI.
Washington, J une 29. The general
deficiency appropriation bill reported
to the House fails to appropriate the
$1,503,000 estimated aa ceceesary te
meet tbe expenses ot government
transportation over non-eubsidizd
branches of land gaut railroadB. Tbe
estimate under the head of the Central
Pacific railroad inrtluded an item of
$735,160 from the War Department for
the transportation ot troops and sup
plies during the present nical year
over the non-sutsidized branches of
that railroad, and an item of 3,171,153
on tharame account during tbe next
fiscal year. Tbe Poetoflice Dep-rt-'
ment aleo sent in an item ot xuio,-
714 for mail tranepcrtaton over
the same branches Auditor Williams
appeared bffore the committee and
explained that these appropriations
were made neceseary by tne decision
of the Supreme Court to the effect
thetcompensntion could not be with
held from t' e railroad on account of
service performed on non-tub ldizd
branch lines. The committee, how
ever, bas disallowed the item on the
ground that the real issue has never
been inveatigated in court and that
the government bas tbe right to set
off as against these claims of the
companies tbe millions of dollar an
nually paid by the government on ac
count of interest on the railroad bonds.

An rer VerrecSesl ay She Mtaaler
New York, June 29. Soon after
the Cleveland Convention of the
Knights of Libor.thore were published
In eeversl papers what purported to be
interviews with Powoerly, la which
he was reported as commenting in
sevsre terms on the Associated P.e-w
reports of the convention, and a
holding Jay Gould responsible for
them As tue reports did not contain
any of the objectionable things of
which Powderly complained, and ii
waa evident bis mind was con
fu ed between tbe Piess and
by special correspondents, an
opportunity was given to blra to ob
tain correct in format on on the sub
ject. These leporta having been
brought to the attxntion of Mr. Stone,
president of the Now York Asociatea
Pnss, that gentleman wrote Mr. Pow
derly explaining tbe difference be
tween "special" and ''press" report,
and asking him to put ibe Associated
