THE DEBT OP TENHES8IE-A PLAIH
STATEMENT OF THE 81T0 ATIOIf.
The hiftb credit organs in this State
assume that a failure to meet the inter
est on ur bonds as it falls due is repn
diation. Some of them argue that forty
cents properly applied will meet the
emergency; others, too, argue our moral
obligation to pay whether able or not.
All of them say much about the sacred
henor and faith of the State, but none
of them, as far as we have seen, come
ut and advooate specifically an in
crease of taxation. This may be the
ultimate object iaferentially it is but
for the present it is kept in the back
ground. They talk flippantly about sn
annual interest of over a million and a
half as a mere trifle. This may seem bo
to a man who pays no taxes, directly, or
makes bis living as a coupon-clipper,
but the toiling masBes feel it, and they
find it harder to raise one dollar now
than two dollan seven years ago. Not
one of these papers has come out and
stated approximately what rate of taxa
tion it is supposed will be required to
wipe out the floating debt in a given
period, say two or four years, and at the
same time meet current expenses and
the regular interest falling due. Whin
the next Legislature meets it is
Bstimated by the Comptroller that
the State will be in arrears, in
round numbers, three millions of dol
lars. To wipe out this alone in one
year would require a tax of at least
eighty cents, to say nothing of liabilities
failing due. About the time the funding
bill passed some beautiful figures were
made to prove that forty cents would le
a sufficient tax. The other side said it
would require eighty cents, and the cor
rectoess of this assertion has since been
fully demonstrated. If the Legislature
of "?3 had fixed the rate at eighty cente,
and that amount had been strictly col
lected, it would not have kept the State
from falling behind. Now we are ex
pected not only to meet the enormous
reznlar demands of the future, but to
wipe out the deficit of three millions
that stares us in the face. Some of the
debt, we have reason to suspect, is not
morally binding. But waiving that
question, we cannot see how the people
can meet the accruing and outstanding
obligations. The fifty cents on the one
hundred dollars worth of property
about as much as the people feel able to
pay directly to the State in the shape of
an advalorem. Besides this, they pay
county, municipal and Federal taxes,
either directly or indirectly, and also
assist to pay the double tux imposed on
merchants' capital, for the merchant to
make 1a profit must charge up his
taxes to customers in the price
of goods. When we add on poll
tax, dog tax, ete., the actual rate now
paid is nearer two dollars on the hun
dred than forty cents. "What is forty
cents?" says the advocate of gilt-edged
State coupons. This reminds us some
times of a distinguished United States
Senator who took his seat in a top-keavy
condition during the progress of a debate
on the national debt. Rising in his place
he gravely aBked the Speaker how much
it was, and running his hand into hi
pocket said, 'I will pay it myself, Mizzer
Speaker, and stop this nnnecei-sary de.
bate." The only difference is that in
this case the bondholders' advocates pro
pose that the people shall pay it. We
are told that it is undignified for a great
State like Tennessee to aek her creditors
for a compromise on a debt made partly,
if not mainly, to build railroad, turn
pikes and the Capitol before the war.
These promises to pay were issued upon
the existing and prospective ability of
the State to pay. Since then the war
swept awny millions of property, and
during the ten years from 18C0 to 1870
that the principal tax-payers were de
prived of a voice in public affairs many
more millions were squandered and
stolen. The first Democratic Ltgisla
tore that met after the war in its gush of
State pride, absence of experience and
plenitude of interested counsellors, as
umed to pay everything without asking
any questions. They were willing to pay
big bonus to signalizi their return to
power. Money was plentiful in those
day?, and the people endured a sixty
cents tax without asking many questions.
Certain State conventions likewise in
formed the world that Tennettfe would
never go back on anybody who held any
of her paper, even as Mrs. Mieiwlier fr e
quently aesured her husband, ilmt hlie
would never desert him or tha twins. Ail
this sort of stuff reads well ou p i'cr,
but under certain favorable cotiiliiwns,
as the spiritualists say, it cau bo manu
factured cheap in quantities to suit cus
tomers. The bondholders took advantage
of loose management in public affairs
and undefined public opinion to rush
through what is known aa the funding
bill. This was admitedly the work of a
powerful moneyed ring. This was not
done without difficulty, and from that
time forward the people began to awaken
to their interests. The last Legislature
was instructed by the State convention
of August, 1874, cot to increase the rate
of taxation above forty cents. We have
no reason to beJievo that the next Legia
lature will be instructed differently by
lie convention which meets on ij &'B
of August, or by the people at more pre
liminary gatherings. The advocate of
high State credit charge that a failure to
pay a part of the interest for any
length of time is as bad as to
repudiate it all and attempt to fasten the
stigma of repudiation upon the State.
The surest way to make this a valid
charge would be to double or treble the
rate of taxation. Then the Trustees will
have to sell out the State, and the State
cannot make a title even if anybody
would buy. We assume two facts as well
established: First, the people will not
voluntarily repudiate a contof their just
obligations; second, they cannot at pres
ent endure an increased rate of taxation.
The State is not bankrupt, but sorely
nraaao.4 and hftr citizeOS have been
taunted as repudiators until they can
bear it with more composure than at
first. When it comes to confiscation or
default of the interest they will speedily
choose the latter. The bondholders
have their agencies at work all over the
State and a desperate effort will be made
to elect a high tax Legislature next fall.
They have made some converts and may
make more. It behooves the people to
be wide awake and compel all aspirants
to define themselves on this vital ques
tion. The State may not see fit to ask
the holders of her securities to scale the
bonds or abate the rate of interest, but
the next General Assembly will only Coniliso and Blaine have not been

burdens of the people a proposition will
come from the other side in due time.
We should regret to see any educational
institution which holds these bonds made
to suffer. Provision couid properly be
nnde for such cases. There are equi
ties on both sides that would require
nice adjustment. However, when the
pnmnrnmifiA comes as C0m8 it will

which has been pending tome years. It

years, two of the most outrageous acta of
partisan legislation, passed solely to pro
voke strife and retain the Republican
party in power, are declared by the
highest, court in the land vpid and un
constitutional. These lawa were framed
in such general terms that the court
compared one of them to a drag-net
large enough to catch all possible offend
ers, leaving it to the courts to step inside
and say who could be rightfully detained
and who should be set at large. It wai
purely political in its intent aad effect.
There is some satisfaction in knowing
that the courts of the country, though
often influenced by partisan considera
tions, are not entirely owned and con
trolled by any party.
Sikci the death of Chief Justice
Nicholson, reducing the court to five
members, the court will no longer be al
lowed, under the Constitution, to sit in
two sections. Nor can the number of

present Constitution. The court, we are
informed, will close its session at Nash

next term at Knoxville on the 1st of
May. During the interval the over
worked judges will enjoy a brief rest.

A MISERABLE LIB RETOLD. .
The New York Graphic recently re
published in the correspondence of its
sensational correspondent, George Al
fred Townsend, the infamous story about
Rev. Dr. Stuart Robinson planning to
introduce small pox into the North from
the Canada side during the war. Noth
ing is too base and villainous for these
Radical correspondents and papers. The
story originated in 18C5 by the testimony
a perjured scoundrel named Godfrey
, Hyams, whom Doctor Robinson bad
befriended in Canada. Hyams after.
wards repented, went before a magistrate
and swore that his statement before the
committee at Washington was false. The
monstrous lie was discredited by the
worst enemies of the South, was de
nounced by Doctor Robinson in fitting
term?, and it was permitted to rest until
1872. Be was very sick during that year
and at one time with small pox at bis
home in Louisville, and the Chicago
Evening Post revived the story, elabo
rated ou it and gloated exultingly over
what was supposed to be his dying
groans. But he did not die, and being a
man of nerve, as soon as he got up brought
suit against the Post for libel and recov
ered $25,000 damages. lie only claimed
euough of the amount to pay costs and
expenses of the suit, about (COO, and
relinquished his claim on the balance.
The St. Louis Democrat and New York
Tribune at different times revamped the
shameless falsehood and gave it new
legs to run around the world. The
Doctor promptly brought suits against
both papers, which are yet in the courts
and will be decided against them doubt
less if ever brought to trial. From an
intimation contained in the Courier-
Journal we presume that he will sue the
Graphic for libel. , The Graphic makes
a very lame explanation, which does not
even approximate the shadow of an
apology. This is not the end of it.
The Knoxville Press and Herald
ceased to exist with its issue of last Sat
nrday, the 25th inst. The Daily Free
Press was founded in June, 18G7, by Col
John M. Flemming, and in December of
he same year was consolidated with the
Daily Herald, which had been fonnded
by the Ramage Brothers; hence the
double nami. The Tribune, owned and
edited by Colonel Flemming and Captain
Sam McKinney, has now bought out
the Press and Herald and assumed its
contracts with subscribers and adver,
tiBers. Mr. William J. Ramage
continues the business of job
printing and book-binding. He com
mends the Tribune to his old friends
in a graceful valedictory. The Press
and Herald was edited during the greater
part of its career by Col. Flemming,
and was an able, influential paper, with
a large circulation throughout East
Tennessee. The Tribune is a larger
paper, is free from incumbrances, law
suits and entangling alliances, and now
that it has the field as a Democratic
daily, speeds on its way with bright pros
pect ol success Mid increasing power
for good. There are still three dailies
in Knoxville. The Chronicle is' Re
publican, the Ago a granger, and they
do not necessarily come into any close
competition. Journalism ought to run
smoothly and profitably in that end of
the vineyard, and we hope it will.
The Supreme Court of the United
States has rendered two very important
and long-expected decisions. The en
forcement act, that everlasting monu
ment of Radical infamy, was declared un
constitutional. The case grew out of the
famous Grant parish affair, and was cerli:
fiod from the Louisiana District Court by
Judge Bradley who decided in favor of
the defendants, on the grounds of the
unconstitutionality of the enforcement
act. The judgment of the court below
was affirmed, and an order made for the
discharge of the defendants. The opin
ion is very elaborate, and was delivered
by Chief Justice Watte. Justice Clif
ford dissented, but concurred in the
opinion. The pthur ppipion was in re-
, gard to the Kentucky election case,
Washington, March 28. Ex-Mimister
Scheack appeared before the Committee
on Foreign Affairs to-day. bringing with
him a natrbfil filled with oarers. He
privately complained of being weak
nothavingfullyrecovered from bis recent
attack of sickness. Senator Stewart
nd n'hw eentlemen connected with
Emma Mine transactions were present,
Schenck read the following paper:
"I desire respectfully to state to the
Committee, that since my arrival in
in Washington I have read printed testi
mony of Jas. E. Lyon and Hiram A
Johnson, on which charges against me
appear to be founded. The testimony of
these witnesses has been taken
in my absence, and without affording
any opportunity for a cross-examina
tion. This evidence is proposed to
show that the sale of the Emma mine by
Park, Baxter and Stewart to the Emma
Company, of London, was a fraud, and
that to the consummation of such fraud
I knowingly lent the assistance of my
name and official position. The charge
is a grave one and 1 ask for a most full
investigation of it. For that purpose,
although not invited to appear before the
cemmittee, I left London as soon as
learned from the newspapers what action
had been taken, and came at once to
Washington. I might rest my vindica
ticn upon the simple statement of my
own eonnection with the transaction
question', which I propose to make, from
which it will appear that under the sin
care belief in the value of the mine and
the honesty of the sale of it, I bought
and paid for the shares I hold now an
sustained large pecuniary loss; but as
the committee have received the
evidence growing out of the pre
vious history of the mine an
intended to show that it was of little
value, and the sale of it was fraudulent,
and this evidence has been in, it was
such that after their interest had
baen sold and paid for, some of
them purchased largely of stock at high
prices and also loaned the company
large sums of money; that the subse
quent failure of tha mine was owing to
mismanagement in its working; that
mine is to-day, if properly worked, in all
probability as valuable as it was claimed
or supposed to be; and finally, that so
far as I know or believe, parties in Eng
land who were concerned in the original
purchase have never claimed that any
fraud r imposition was practiced upon
them, that claim having been recently
set up by those who have bought stock
since the alleged failure of the mine
at a nominal price. It will be ap
parent to the committee that this proof
must involve the interrogation of a con
siderable number of witnesses; that
evidence cannot be presented except
through the means universally employed
injudicial tribunals, the examination of
witnesses by competent counsel aw
qaainted with the case; submit, of
oonrse, to such further questions as any
member of the committee may wish to
put; that to conduct inquiry by calling
upon witaesses to examine themselves,
or by such desultory and imperfect ex
amination as must be made by the com
mittee not informed would be unjust to
the party who relies upon the testi
mony, and would tend te obscure the
irutn ramer man to elicit it. 1 nave,
therefore, to request of the committee
that the usual privilege of assistance
of proper counsel may be accorded as
well as for cress-examination of wit
nesses who have testified again! tue
As tor the examination of those whom I
desire to produce, should the committee
be pleased to accede to this my request,
as I cannot doubt they will, I will be
ready to proceed with the cross-examina
tion of witnesses or on my own state
ment, as the committee may think most
I am, gentlemen, very respectfully,
