declare their inability to settle the
State Debt, by deciatiug their de
terininatiou to accept no proposi?

one the state bad clieieu, namely,
the RiDDLKB_.KiiEii Debi Settle
ment. They then granted charter
to the A mei lean Tobacco Company
aud thou like a lot ol soho A- boy &
hastened to repeal it.
JSot having enough oflices lo go
around among the ?? boys" they de
cided to pass the Meat Inspection
Law, tor the " protection ol the
home market" but which was in
reality one ol' the biggest pieces oi
political jobbery ever lorced upon
any people. The result has been
to loree up tbe pi ice ol beet, ana
now the people have to sutler from
tbe folly ol these legislators. Kel
ative to this law, tbe Richmond
Daily Times, Democratic says:

for them to do so wits au eb a iawas
thif, passed by an overwhelmingly Dem
ocrauo Legislature, ou their statute
books, will make them liable to tue
charge ol groat inconsistency lor lhere
ia no Protective statute upou the books
of the Uuiled Stales so Slurs tts this.
Under the provisions of the law not
only are consumers of meat in every
locality of the State placed directly at
the mercy of their butchers aud cattle
raiser?, but in those localities where
beef cattle are not produced, aud where
the citizens aro compelled io have their
meat shipped to tiu-in, they must, if
that meat has to come from pom ts one
hundred miles distant be taxed, one
cent on every pound they buy. But
worse than this, as shown by bennoi
Stubbs yesterday, if the citizens of au\
locality are dependent upon o; dering
meat from any particular depot, such
as Richmond, .Not folk, or any oilier city
if tbi y wish to purchase meat aiaugbt
ered one hundred miles aud over from
those depots they must really pay two
cents a pound for the privilege, siuce
they must pay one inspection fee of one
cent at the locality where the meat was
Hist received, aud another inspection
fee of a cent at the point at whicu they
make the dual purchase.''
The Lynchburg Advance, parti
santy Democratic does not hesitate
to charge up all the shortcomings
to their account. It gives a resume
of their bad legislation when it
?Tbe present legislature has certain^
adopted some of tbe most impolitic and
unfortunate laws ever known in the
state. It is absolutely astounding what
gross blunders an intelligent body ot
men have fallen into in a brief space ot
an unclosed session.
One of these obnoxious laws i? that
heavily taxing all joint stock companies
corporations coming into tbe state to do
business and develop resources. ls
stead of inviting capital and enterprises
to tbe state Un y seem to have been de?
termined to tax aud drive it all out.
Another most obnoxious law is that
Just passed last week creating what are
called excise boards in cities and couu
ties which are to regulate all liquor li?
cense hereafter. Tilts bill is no* pend
lng before the Governor, and while we
have no time to discuss it, it is to be
boped Governor Mt Kinney will prompt
ly veto it.
But a still more objectionable law, it
possible, than either of those mentioned
is tbe beef inspection law, under which
meat inspectors are to be appointed in
all of^our cities and markets, and a tax
of one cent a pound is to be collected on
all fresh meats imported more than IOU
miles from the market where offered for
The p'irpose of this law professes tc
be to prevent tbe sale of unsound meat*
in our markets, and if that were really
its one effect it might possibly be ol
some tolerance. But such ur.questioua
bly, is not tbe case but rather ihe con*
trary. Its injurious and grossly unjust
"effect upon the Virginia cattle raisers
aud meat buyers is clearly manifest.1*
The Richmond State says con?
cerning the Meat Inspection Law:
"It ls about as unfair a law as wai
ever inflicted upon a people.*'
This is Democratic testimony,
Were the legislature made np en?
tirely of Afro-Americaus no mote
caustic arraignment of it could ht
cited. Will tbe people of Virginia
tolerate itv Will the better ele
meut of the Democracy allow
themselves to be misrepresented iu
tbe legislative halls of this state.
We shall see.

unwise, to say tue least. To do such a
thing vtould be a crime."
The above is sound logic. Tbe
editor of that journal has arrayed
himself in tbe ranks of tbe progres?
sive Democracy of this country.
Were his sentiments the expres?
sions of tbe Democrats of this state,
no longer would tbe question be
asked why the JSegro durr' vnt*

and briug forth an era of good feel?

uouueed Abolition enthusiast.

iu its malignity towards the Negro.
It will be remembered that eight
colored men were incarcerated iu
the Barnwell Co. jail of South Car?
olina. Two ol theui were charged
with the murder of a white mau,
two others with being accessories
and four others were simply retain?
ed as witnesses.
On the morning of Dec. 28, 1889
a band of lawless white meu took
them out aud riddled their bodies
with bullets, including the innocent
aud the guilty. It was presumed
that common humanity would have
caused, regardless of race or color
party or creed, section or national
ity, all to rally in the raising ol
means for the aid of the defenceless
wives and helpless children who
were ruthlessly robbed of theil
means of support. But it is not to
be so. Tbe journal to which we
referred in its issue of the 2d inst,
The Philadelphia Press second* the
appeal of President-stealing Cuan

ed by a South Carolina mob at Barn?

It says turther:
*'A Negro suff ring for food, or fuel, oi
house room is a >rare" thing in the
South "
We disagree, for it was claimed
on every side the increased death
rate among ns is due to impropei

ten times as many crimes committee
daily or annually in Phi.adeiphia ?_

That ?? begs the question t Be

It is not how many crimes that

We wish it did. It President
Harris-N's reported remarks up?
on the murder ol Deputy Marshal
Saunders may bo taken as au
mdicator, it is beginning to under?
stand. He says:
* We must make it .primarily distiuct

That's cool, to say the least. So

ol' tbe Constitution of tbe United
States has no connection whatever
wini tbe tjuestiou of loyalty to the
Uuiou, aud presistent treating ol

ouuty officials of Arkansas. It
depends upou the shooting down
by a midnight assassin of such a
man as Col. Jno. M. Clayton ol
the same state as well as the brutal
murder of Deputy Marshal Saun?
ders in Florida. It depends up?
on such frauds as denied to Hon.
John Mercer Laughton his
certificate ol' election as Congress
man irom the 4th Congressional
District of Virginia, .diLLER from
South Carolina, Threet from Ala
bama, Hill from Mississippi and a
host of other liepublicun white
men who had been couuted out by
frauds so unblushingly that eveu
heaven might wonder. He says,
? When Lee surrendered at Appomat
tox the South laid down ber arms and
gave ber parole.*'
Yes and took them up and com
menced shooting down .Negroes
before the last Yankee's coat-tail
had been lost sight of in the dis?
tance. They thought they had
settled the war hut they left an?
other more terrible than that ot
open and armed con fl cfc. Fifty
thousand Negroes untimely sent
into the unknown world is a suffi
cient evidence of that fact.
He says ?
"During tbat period the Negro, who
had .been given, in tbe utmost good
faith at infinite cost, all th?t advantages
of education which bis faculties have
enabled him to receive."
So three months schooling in a
year is all the advantage of educa?
tion which the Negro's faculties
allow him to receive. Rev. J. E.
