what little is headed out shows that there

THE STATE DEBT FItOBLEM.
SPEECH OF COlt. S. A. POINTER IN COLUMBIA.
O01. Pointer made a speech In tbe court
house on tlie "Lh of May, to a huge audience
A synopsis oi his remarks was crowded out
Col. Pointer drew a picturo Retting forth
the two classes of politicians in strong lan
guage and applicable terms; upon tlie one
hand stood Ihe friends 01 the bondholders
advising the laboring people to pay their
debts aud give up all they had rather than
dishonor or lower the salary of the olflce
holders. The other class stood as tlie ene
mies of the bondholder and the pretented
friend of tho people, who said, "Fay them
both inn- renndialn vonr debt, so that von
may le the laittcr enabled to raise our sala
ries salaries we must have, even liyoudo
degrs.de yourselves with repudiation." He
appealed to the people not to be ilriccn by
the iKjinbasttc hish tax men. nor tinned bv
the Insignificant repudiatioulst, but to stand
firm and demand tnat their salaries be stip
ulated and the greater part, ot the debt.lf not
all would be naid bv f eioulsiles of their
offices. He drew a comparison between tbe
salaries of Kentucky and Virginia aud those
of Tennessee, showing from Comptroller's
reports that we naid S75.1.110 more In inferior
judicial salaries than they do in Virginia.

inquisitional power of tlie Brand lurv was a
curse to the country, and only tended to fill
the pockets of the Attorney General aud
lawyers that in these two Items alone
enough could be saved to pay one-fourth of
of the interest upon State debt compromised
at fifty cents. 'He showed and cited to
many instances as proof, that the perquis
ites ot six offices to the counly alter paying
to eacli ollicer a lull and am pit salary
would pay, it turned into State treasury.
7.ii,otio of the debt annually. He claimed
that five hundred competent men in each
county could be found who would be glad
10 nil these six offices for less than one
thousand dollars upon an average. That
the lower the price the better the officer and
tlie better the bond he could give. That the
oilice should seek the man, and that offices
were created tor the benefit ot the people,
and not for the office holder. Officers
should be made to know that they were
elected to do the work and not to hire oth
ers to fill their placts while they were tisn-
lug, idling, ana attending theaters auu gam
bling shops. He showed by comparing Au-
ilitor's report of Virginia with Comptroller's
leport o! Tennessee that one judge aud one
clerk in that Slate did the work required of
three judges anil clerks here nnd for much
less tmui half the money. He compared
the Slate while paying tbeS enormous and I
useless salaries iu cise they repudiated to a
man who would take the bankrupt law j
with ins pocket full of money. He also
showed thai delay whs costing the State
from Sl,!!vii ,is0 to SldO anunally lu Inter
est; that the debt would soon double itself,
ile, however, sta'.ctl in emphatic terms, that
to talk about paying the debt even at fifty
cents was sheer nonsense, unless we pro
vide the menus by the abolishment of all
unnecessary officers aud using the nerquis
ites heretofore paid into individual rockets
iu payiug the State debt; that the people
could not and would not stand a direct tax
upon tnelr property to meet the debt. Be
sides, if we were out of debt, and had S-0,000.-().ti
ia the treasury, we ought to stop throw
ing mouey into these enormous salaries;
that we are simply encouraging idleness
aud wanton wastefulness, and making bad
men out of good ones.
He urged ihe adoption of the MofJett whis
ky renister as a gr ind source of revenue.and
pr wed clearly that it would benefit all and
iniuie none, aud by it all thechildren in the
State both black and white could be well
educated. He spoke to a lan;e and enthusi
astic crowd, who received the Fpeech well,
and seemed to eudorse the sentiments ex
pressed. Col. P. claims that lo man will
oppose the wisky register after he under
stands it, ineitlitr the wiiisky seller nor the
whisky drinker!; that without it the debt
can bo paid iat .Hi cents) in eight years or
less, and with it. less than six years. Col. 1'.
promises to encourage all and pocket no
bills leading to letreuchnient, and that he
will prosi-cute and punish every puppy who
steals a bill of that soit lrom the legislative
balls; that the time has come lor meu who
live in ui age of public schools aud enlight
enment to throw oil' their shackles and
throttle po'itical tricksters of all parties.
Col. P. shows conclusively that the assetts
of the Stale under this mode of administra
tion will be nmplc to pay the debt with a
dirtct tax not to exceed twenty cents. He
thinks it even piobable that a twenty cent
tax will be unnecessary. He stated that
there were some cilices paying fro. u teu to
thirl v thousand dollars etch, while they
coulti filled wiih btltcr men lor twenty-rive
hundred. Ile called over many instunces
when these enormous salaries were being
paid. He called attention to the fact thai
there were at least tweuly-five magistrates
th were a t. ikil t v en I .'lac iiirt. .oi laitv.
in the Slate receiving 110111 peiquisues lrom
twentv-'ive huutlrcd to
teu thousand aoi-
lars. He aiso called attention to the ditter
eut clerk's offices, to comptoller, secretary,
treasurer, etc., sup nuleiident of schools
aud of the capilol proving that these sala
ries, alter giviug libera! pay to each officer,
would more than pay the inte-iest ou state
debt. Col. P. states in decided terms that
he does not nmke war upon the present
ollicer bolder that tuey are to be commend
ed for stcuring their offices that they are
legitimate, aud that they are tlierefoie en
titled to all tuey can make, and that he does
not know au oilice holder who is not a gen
tleman. He makes uo war upon them and
casts no ceusuie. Put that, be proposes to
make war upon the law allowing commis
sions instead of stipulated salaries. He
hope s his people wii I no longtr be duped
upon this subject, lie sets forth the assets
and expenditures of the State as follows,
and proves that repudiation under- this
mode 01" administration is unnecessary, but
inevitable if the tax has to be raised under

Col. I'., when asked if he would submit to
a coiivi ntion, sjid he would most cheerfully
submit toil convention ot delegates seutdi
rectly from the people. If thedistrict meet
lugs were set by the county chairman upon
some public day like the first Thursday In
August would be, when all the voters of the
Stale were out aud could be heard from, he
would be glad to submit. He hoped they
would not set the day for the district meet
ings, as it lrequently was at the busiest
time, witii a view of avoiding an expression
of the people, so as to run the convention In
the luterest of some political trickster. No
Ponest candidate's interest could be com
promised by getting io this way a full ex
pression of the people. He hoped the peo
ple in this iustauce would remember that
lheir interests were at slake, aud not forget
lUat conventions are generally run by pro
fessional men nnd office holders ami ofiine
seekers, most of whom will be opposed to
retreuebmcut, and will therefore work that
ihe voice of tiie people! may not bo heard
He hoped that a fair expression of the
people's will would bo given t nrougti the
couvention. If the people decided against
him and his plan ol relict, ho would cheer
fully submit, ashis object was to s-ive thesni
and himself from both repudiation aud
bankruptcy. and he was not prompted to

COLUMB.'A AND MAURY.
As Seen by Inteliaiibnt Illinois Einron.
7V the EJior 0 thr HtuUI arvl Moil Being
a stranger in your midst, having left my
Nnheru home in Illinois with the inten
tion of looking out a detdrable home in Ihe
Sooth, and being directed by friends who
had shared the hoxpitallty of the people of
Columbia, I find myself for the time lielue a
denizen of your beautiful aud romantically
situated little city. And while I find many
thlna-a strange and novel to my Nortbetn
eyes, I must in all candor eonless my agree
able disappointment and surprise at ttio
condition of things and the hearty welcome
extended to me upon every band where I
have needed the advice or assistance of per
sons si nee my arrival here. To say that I
am well pleased with Columbia and Its sur
roundings Is to hardly to do your agreeable
little city Justice. lam delighted with it.
Surprised at Its active go-ahead business
enterprise, and well pleased with Its high
moral and social tone. Its schools compare
favorably with the best schools iu the best
towns of the north, aud its pnblie aud pri
vate residences surpass a majority ol our
Northern towns and cities of more preten
tions, and yonr churches aie not only
worthy of your enterprise aud intelligence,
but seem to be well attended aud presided
over by able and devout ministers, while
the beaul iul country contiguous to your
city seems indeed to be a laud teeming
with productiveness aud blessed by the
baud ol beauty with all that Is lovely and
desirable to make man happy and con
tented. There are many things, however,
needed here, and In fact all over the South,
to fully develop and to bring into active use
the gre&t resources of this delightful coun
try. I notice that most, if not all, of the ag
ricultural machinery used by your larmers
is tlie product of foreign mauutactories
jour plows, reapers, mowers, cuiiivators,
wagons and In fact almost every article of
farm use is brought here at great expense
from tlie North. While you have facilities
in the way of water power and the best ma
terial for the construction of farm imple
ments, you spend thousands ol dollars an
nually ia paying freights and pro tits upon
these articles that of right ought to be man
ufactured at home, thtreby not only saving
tbe great outlay to the consumer, but giving
employment to operatives and skilled
mechanics who would become citi
zens and tax-payers of your State aud in
viting a population to settle among you
that would become identified with you by
the ties of social life as well as by the
slight tie of property Interest, and which
would eventually solve the vexed problem
of the ultimate extinguishment of your
State debt. While upon this subject, Mr.
Editor, permit me to say a few woms as the
impression ol a stranger upon that subject.
We had the pleasure, on Aloutiay Inst, ot lis
tening to a portion of Col. Pointer's speech
upon this subject, and wuhe we do not ap
prove of the remedies suggesieal by the Col.
as a whole, some portions of his speech
were highly practicable and commendable.
For 1 1. Ma nee, his opposition to repudiation.
Capital is the most sensitive of all material
things, antl the mere thoughtof repudiation
causes men of capital to at once give the
cold shoulder to communities and iudivid
uuls alike who even entertain the slightest
and most vague notions upon this subject.
To talk seriously about repudiating a pub
lic debt, that has beeu contracted in good
faith, Is to destroy all confidence lu you coi
leclively, aud even lo cast suspicion on
them as corporate bodies and Individuals.
We understand yonr State to be about $111,
OOO.mij, whi e the taxable property of the
State is ?i,70!i,nll. While in hard times
this may appear an enormous debt to be
raised by taxation, yet its proportions are
not so appalliog, when it is considered that
I his debt t an lie so funded as to ruu a long
time, and ilial by pursuing an honest aud
straightforward course in the mailer, that!
Hie taxable property of ihe State will yearly j
increase aud make the rate per capita oil
taxaliou eacn year lighter. But, should t he !
people of the State vote to lepudlate Ihis I
debt, they at once drive every man ol capi- j
tal aud enterprise, who may contemplate .
making a home in this fine state, away to j
somo other locality where public honesty is 1
held higher in esteem, and where public!
obligations are held as sacred at private
conliacts. This generation do uot on a Ten
nessee they are ouly occupants of the il ,
to-day. aud they ha ve no moral right to j
bind Uk,!i the untold millions that, will
come alter them, the infamous word oi l
"Repudiation," and have il cling to thein ;
