lents in France and Algerla. Hc w_
lso connected with the liquidatlon of
ho Misericorile mlssionarles, thc Plc
us Father.., Marlaniste--, Oblatcs, jte
emptlonists, Oratians and thc Ladies
'f st. Maur, and lt looks as if hc
et them oft llght. Why ho didn't
.ake more, wc do not Unow, except
that the hlgh-ch.ss Frenchman i3 al?
ways polite. lt is noted Sn the tele
graplilc dispatches in all seriousness
that; anothcr man has been put lu tlie
placo of Dttez whose chief clalm to
dlstlnctlon appears to bo that he
"llquldated the affairs ot the Panama
Catial Company." lt might bc well
for Seltz ;o sunimon him as a wlt?
ness for thc defense in the case of
tho New York World when it is calleo.
We wohder nt tlie moderatlon of
thls embczzler and our sympathles are
with him. Possibly he thought that as
the Government had stolen the proper?
ty from the Churcii. It could not mnlu
much of a row about hls taking hh
.liare of tlio plunder, und there would
ie a great. deal ln such a view. A
Government which has .stolen so frce
y itsclf should not begrudgo one of
t;i trurttc.l agents llke. frcedom in
hu appropriation of what dld not be
qng to him.
There has nevor been in the history
if the world a niorc dishonest act
han tho atealing of the Qhurcii prop
srty in France by the Government of
.hat country. The fact that lt was
I'hurch property makes the theft all
he more/dlsgraceful and tinpardona
jle. Our sympathies aro wholly
vith thc thlef, Ducz. To steal
roni the Stato what tho Stato had
stolen from the Church could hardly
io called'' a niortal sin.
BEUTED JUSTICE TO C.nAFTEKS.
Something ls radically wrotig in
""cnnsylvanla. The best laid sehemes
tiavo gone agley. Carcfully worked out
plans must have fallcd, The Judge
.nust have beon honest or the Jury
nust have come from tho upper part
of the State. The Commonwealth's
attorney must havo mcant business,
and must not have been influenccd by
the pollticians. Any and al] of these
must havo boen eotribincd in the atart
iing issue: two of thc Capltol grafters
aro actuully to bo sont to prison.
We must confesi- to a dcep sonso
of surprise. Ever since Trcasurer
Wllliam Berry, of tho Quaker State,
discovered in 1006 that tho new Capltol
was honoycombed wlth graft und
rotton with peculatlon from collar to
doinc, wo expected that a flnal coat ot
v.'hlt'cwash would cover it all. As dis
closure after dlsclosurc was made, and
as greater graft led to lesser theft,
and so forth ad infinituni, we had no
hopo that a slnglo convlctlon would
come. How could We hopo for such
a. 11-iins-.* Pennsylvania was Pennsyl?
vania, and if nll tho guilty men in.
volyed in the gruft wero sent to prison
und properly strlpcd, thore would bo
many vacant ..cats in the Loglslature
iind few lobbylsls left about the Capl
tol. Nqr did our hopet. brlghten whon
wo lcarncd, back in 1907, that tho
totiil grafl would amoutit . to .-moro
than $$,000,000, We know that thc
proverh about putting a man ln thc
Sennte for stealing a railroad and put?
ting unothcr ln prison for stoallng a
loaf of broad hud been" orlglnated ln
Pennsylvania. Wo knew how thc
proverb would work, ?
We wero not dlsappolnted ln most
of tho .cases, As the investlgatlng not
of the Logi_ktturo nnd of tlio grand
I Jury. dragged on through mlres ol
roltcn polltlcs and rlvitlcts of graft
wc saw ono nfler another of the guilty
mon .Up through tho looso* meshcf
of tho law. A m.v nignths later ll
bogan to look as though the big flsh
ha,i all escnped, whllo only a few
stickers rctnalned In the net. Thon thc
tlmg-nct hcld. Tho guilty incn .-.craiii
bicd and thoy fought. They ploadcd the
law and they devlsed now legal
(?tiibblc;*, Two of them could find no
escape, nnd consoqucntly thoy have
liegun' thelr two-ycar scntonces ln
the. Eastern Peuitentiary.
There Is nothing particularly wholc
somo about thls ondlng of thc famous
Capltol frauds. In fact, most people
will feel -u Iurklng synipnthy for thc
two offendcrs who, whllo doubtlcss
guilty, wero not one whlt more de
scrving e)f conflnctucnt than perhaps a
score of others who mannged to escape
prison'. Thon, too, tho spectnclc of
incn dcfcatlng thc ends of Justlce for
three years is scarcelv calcttlatcd to
act ns a moral deterrcnt. Had they been
common fclons, theso men, nnd scores
llke them, would havo served thelr
jall terms long ago anel would now bc
back iu tho world striving to livo
down their dlsg'racc.
Thc result ls little better than an
aCquittal. It does scarcely moro good
than lf tho condemnoel men had been
allowed to enjoy their booty wlth the
other polltical vulturcs who befouled
the Capltol and besmlrched the gllt on
lts donie.
GRAXI) OLIJ XOHTll CAKOLINA.
tJnc of the greatest States ln thc
Unlon ls North Carolina.
"Carolina, Carolina, Heaven's blcssings
attend her,
Whlle wo'/livo we wlll chcrlsh, protect
and tlefend her."
Thls is apropos of nothing excopt
our deatro to "get in rlght" wlth tho
people of this town who como from
tho dcar old State, "first at Bethcl
and last at Appomattox," a modcl
Corpmonwoalth in the charnctcr of Its
people, In the wealth ot Its resources,
in the gonius of its soldlcrs, in the
extent of ? its territory, and in the
worth of lts women. Some of the per?
sons who are lacking in a saving sense
of humor are incllned to think that
tlie llttle things that tippcar in the
newspaper.'. from tlme to tlme are in?
tended as rcflcctions upon thls splen?
dld State; but they wero nover more
mlstaken. Thls brlef statement will
"put them wiso," as tho New York
World would say.
AVhat we'want is to get ln closer
touch wlth our North Carolina neigh
bors, because they are a most deslr
ablc sort of people, and all of them that
we know, and we know some hundreds
of thousands of them, would fit exact
ly into tho populatlon ot Richmond,
thc fairest city in all thc glorious
galuxy of American communitics, sit
tlng scrcnely on lier seven. bills?we
belleve that is the number, more or
less?at'the head of navigation on the
James Rlver and walting and wishlng
and worklng for the people of all the
world to ? como up, or come down, or
come across to this town, which a dis
crlmlnatlng Heaven has kissed wlth
its favor.
Just the same, however, the people
of Mceklcnburg county dld not anti
cipate our own inimortal Thomas Jef?
ferson in tho Declaration of American
Indepondence, and there are othet
things with which somo othcr people
outsldc of North Carolina have had
something to do. This does not mean,
of course, that North Carolina has not
done moro than any> other State, not at
all; but that some of the rest of us
'have been trailing along after her
and occasionally getting ahead of her
In fact, lf not in flction.
Seriously, Richmond is indebted to
the Old North State for many of lts
most distlngulshed men?lawyers, phy?
sicians and mtnlsters?and only the
other day ono of the greatest of the
rellgious Orders in the .world, wlth its
hoadquarters ln North Carolina, deter
mlncd to plant a great educational In?
stitution here. Then. look at the North
Carolinians who havo gone Into busi?
ness in this town: Morgan, who is at
the head of the Vlrglnia-Carolina con
cern, one of the biggest Industrial on
terprises in the country, and Borden,
his assistant, who haa just asked u.
to joln hls church, and Millcr, thc
vico-president and cashier of thc _FIrsl
National Bank, and Jackson, tho head
of tho Virginia Trust* Company, and
a host of othcr North Carolinians whe
i havo settled right down "in our mldst,"
who think that thls- is the f Inest jilace
ln the world, and who cxpect to own
tho.most of it beforo they get through.
Then thero is that other distlngulshed
Tur Heel?primus intcr pares?thc
chief figure in the educational llfa ol
thia State, one Edwln A. Alderman, ol
thc Unlverslty of Virginia, and tlu
Rev. Dr, Moore; the president of tht
Union Theologlcal Sominary, so thai
botwecn Morgan and tho rest of the
Industrial and monoy klngs and tlu
educational hierarch at Charlottcsvilh
is that touch ot orthodoxy, whlch g-ives
North Carolina in Virginia a most de
lightful fiavor.
Onu of Dr. Aldorman's stock storles

HOW Tt) MAKM THK SOUTH SOLID
Wo -c'ar that the Chlcago Trlbune lt
somewhat lacklng In the. faculty ol
differentintlon. Doesn't It see. if tli'i
United States Government would pro?
vldo for the pnyincnt' of all the Con?
federate money, that It would be en?
tlrely praetlcablo for the .South to take
care of all its veterans? We woult
have thc Goiernment at WashlnKtor
lo tlo no more than thls-, and surely
after nearly half a century oC tra
tcrnization, thls Is not a j;rcat" deal
to ask. Besldes, thc samo printlng
house, tho Walker, Bvans nnd Cogs
well Company, that prlntcd tlie old
Conrederato money ls stlll in active
opcration at Charleston. South Carollna,
and posslbly has some of thc old platcs
ntIII in stock.
Tho Trlbune has prob?bly heard the
story that has been told on tho Hon.
C. G. Mommlnger, Secretary of th.:
Confodorate Treasury, who ls said to
liavo answered, when asked the
questlon of "WJiat ls the vol
I ume of Confederate Treasury notes
Is.sued?" repjled: "lt is elther S-IOO.
000,000 or $l00,000,0Uo,000; I have
forgotten exactly which." The Trlbune
wlll seo that wlth tlio platcs stlll ln
a falr state of preservatlon and wlth
tho same printers, or thelr succcssors,
ready for active opcratlons, how coni
paratlvcly easy it would be for us
to get back at least a part of what
the Government at AVashington has
taken from us in the way of p-ensions
and other thlngs for "saving thc
Union."
We are not nsking- for more than we
aro entltled to; and to prove that this
ls so, we should bc willing to have a
clause lnserted Jri the bill provldiiiK
that "all Confederate money nrlnted
slxty days after the passage of thls
Act shall be regarded as altog-ethcr
sptlrlous and Its utterance after that
perlq.il of tlmo shall be punished as It
for counterfeltlng."
That ought to be satisfactory to our
Tnsurgent contemporary, which never
Insurges at tho rifht tlme and when
Its Insurglng can be of the least help
or hurt to ?? anybody.
THK Cl'UAHY CASK.
AVe have not the least personal In?
terest In the matter: but we are rather
glad that Mr. Cudahy beat up Mr. Lll?
lls. We do not thlnk, howovcr, that he
should have hlt his wlfo ln thc cyc?
that was wholly unparliamentary and
agalnst tho pcace and dignlty or thc
1 Stato as aforesaid, but, as for Llllls,
tho pork packci- dld not glvo hlm any
more than what was coming to him.
According to the reports prlntcd In
such papers u? the Houston Post hc
trlmmed him to suit our taste.
Mrs. Cudahy says that there was
nothing out of tho common between
hor and Lillis, and we are too, polite to
even thlnk that she would extravagatc
about thls or any other matter; but she
will agree with us upon reflectlon,
doubtloss, that sho exposed herself to
much siispiclon by her conduct in run?
nlng about wlth the gentleman whom
her husband and his chauffcr wcl
comed to tho Cudahy manslon. The
Cudahys and the Llllises havo been or
very Intlmate terms for a good many
