ALBXANDBIA. V .A. - THURSDAY gygNIKtf, APRIL 9:_ Tus ACQUITTAL of Kincaid was inacoord ace- with law, jas'.ice ard the rights of man. A? Taolb36 was a pablio man, Kincaid wae perfectly jastifiable in writiDg the letter which made him his deadiy enemy. It is only the fear of publicity that deters many a raao from the unrestrained indalgenoe of hi? passions. Since writing that letter there was not a day until heshotTanibeson which Kincaid was not liable to affront, Insult, asiau't pncl threatened death, from the man who had avowed himself his enemy. In? deed, such wa" his danger, and so desirous waa be tc> avoid if, that it interfered with his ra^acs of making his living, as it re Bticted his time at the Capitol tol'uob hours as fbr?o In which he would be lees liable to mpet Tauige, and it was only in theBeoond nitacfe mede en him the same day that be f ee 1 himself. The wor.d=r ia not that he nho' Tau1 bee, bui that he did not shoot him before._ A dispatch from Lyno, Mas^., says '"the Jong-contloned strike of the morcoco work? ers there was a total failure; the strikers surrendered unconditionally and will e-ee-k w:rk where, they can, but that few will fiod Ifc, most of their planen have been filled." Understanding is as lacking dow as it was in the dsjs of Solomon, and always wiil be. strikes have ezisted freaa the begtEoirg.and t*i I continue until the end, and, with only enough f-xcepficcB to prove the rule, they have ftiyayp, scor.or or later, had the same result as that at J^vnn. In tyrannous coun? tries it con id he different, but in fret" end iqaal and liberty-loving America people will manage their own business in their own way. At,d it is observed that few intis more upon the exercise of that indisputable right than those who, though now proprie? tor-3, commenced ife as day laborers. mb. GECKOS fbanklin EDMUNDS wiil not go down to history among the great men of the u s. Senate, but as chief of the ignoble e'ghr, who, os a majority of the elec? toral coinojlr<*icn, sanctioned and made ef facive the monumental fraul of all ages of ?'he world, lb*- Prt-eideotial ewiudie of 1S76. He wbs chalimsn of the committee that pre. pared and reported the bill creating that commission, urged its paseage, and accepted a position cn the commission, and was the principal agent by wbirh the preconceived otjoctof the whole villainous scheme wa* euccestfaUy aPcomt)lif;h?'d. In BOMB cities the price of gaa is on'y fifty four and a half cents a thousand feet, und Ibe companies owning the works pay a dividend of thirteen percent, to their stock? holders Hi re the price Is $1 60, and the dividend loss than the legal interest on the cost of the works. A*, the price the people of this city are compelled to pay for their ??s, the inco'ne from the gas works, which belong to them, ought to be sufficient to im? prove the streets and kept them in perma? nent repair. Ths Kansas republicans bul'ded better than thi'y knew when they incorporated woman eeffrage into the laws of that State, for at the la'o municipal elections there all f>ut two of (be cities eleoted democratic may ors, the women, even the wives of promiu ent republicans, having banded themselves together and voted the democratic ticket, giving as thrir rea?on for doing so, the fact that the ret'tibiicans had organized the negro vote. -~o- -e--?
