with It occasionally with great Joy, as
it now does when It bays that the pres?

if this Is logical and the true conse?

Know of ho remedy but to surrender
the question and agree with our ad?
versary quickly. But we confess that
that Is not our style, and that we have
a very different style, of which we are
neither afraid nor ashamed of, and for
which we have no apologies to malte.
But if we give in these contests, we
are equally willing to take, so our op?
ponent deals fairly witli the-facts and
the argument; and so doing, let his con?
clusions eonie, hit us as hard as they
may. We do not see what Is to be
saved ar gamed tor truth and right by
the bandying' of compliments, or by an
exchange of showers of rose-water. As

idin ration may be delightful, but, alas.
It Is not duty?certainly not the duly an
earnest journal feels toward his God,
lib country and Ms people, as we'd as1
to truth and right. And yet the Vir?
gin Ian-Pilot Is eager to cultivate the
ir ' kindly relations with Its contem?
poraries, and feels most kindly toward
o( them, with malice toward none.
Tho Constitution of Virginia pro
vldes that taxation shall be equal and ^
uniform, and In proportion to the as- '
.1 value of the pronenty. It also
rdvlde's that there may he a tax on all
Incomes in excess of SGOO a year. It a
State tax on incomes is just, why Is

There are taxes on lineal and col?
lateral inheritances, by many of the
S'trtit :". end the U. ft. Imposes a grad?
uated tax on nil inheritances, lineal
and collateral, according to the amount

An Income-tax is not a direct t :r.

Tho machine, or the "dous ex
mac h In a" of Virginia polities. Is the
official sclf-porpetuntlng organl7.a.tlon
of the Stale'Democratic parly, Includ?
ing not only the State Committee, but
many, If net most, of tho county and
city committees, olTlce-hqld'era and of?
fice-seeker?, together with Martin's
original corporation sponsors and back?
ers lit 1S93. This, in answer to our es?
teemed contemporary, the Petersburg
Index-Appeal, which says:
"if the machine is not the State Com?
mittee, which Is the Democratic party
by representation, and It Is not the
Democratic people, pray who la It? it
Is paying Mr. Martin too high a com
pllfrierVt to say that he alone Is the
whole machine. I.el the shrlokers be
explicit, -and tell us definitely who (the
machine is. and where it Is.','
And this definition of the machine,
the Virginlan-Pilot had repeatedly i
given before our contemporary enun?
ciated ys inquiry. Hut, If our contem?
porary considers our answer tog com?
prehensive, we are quite Willing to con?
fine It to the oillelalliy of the Demo?
cratic party of Virginia, -and even to
admit that some (,f those olllclal mem- ;
hers "are not In it,"?being over-ruled
by certain "bosses," or b<?ing quietly
indifferent to what is* done by their,
committees, perhaps having Implicit
confidence In their older, or more ex
perienced colleagues.
Doesn't our contemporary know liow
a parly organization 'inevitably be?
comes n machine, run by a few com
lnlttec-tnen. who are active, pushing
and presuming and assuming1, and often
by one man, who ''bosses" the job? Ii
first is a clo.se. self-pcrpetunting body,
who prnctleully appoint themselves, nit
nothing is m?re distasteful to the aver?
age good citizen than to meddle in par?
ty politics. Most of the members of
every committee accept their positions.
up"ii the expressed or understood con?
dition that the committee may have
their names, provided that they are
not bothered and that the experts do
the work or tpaustet the business
Sooner or later, as said, this results In
a ruling few, or In a "boss." And it Is
this organization, so developed, or
evolved, that becomes the machine,?
as many notable examples are extant In
American politic?: and to this com?
pletion has th.-- nf'Vlal organization of
the Virginia Democracy come at last.
Under tha "infamous rule," (as our
cohtomporttr'y calls \o of the election
laws of this State. Ami this is the ma?
chine of which Martin and,his cabal
have got control. I
Wlv> is the "boss?" Ah. there we are
a less. It Is rtulte possible that ho

much worse, ah outside agent of the
corporations that furnish tho machine

and confessed, to some extent, in ISflX
Enough Is known to discredit this or?
ganization; er machine, nt all events:
and everybody knows that It is for
Martin, as Ih ? city and county com?
mittees, for the most part, have also
shown themselves to be; and It Is cor
tnin that it MUST decide all questions
submitted to it. or ?:" which it assumes
jurisdiction. In which Martin Is con?
cerned. In fit vor of Marlin, unless the
point in dispute can make no material

it la said 'in the authority of a high
naval o(lieor on the Asiatic ittatlon, that
Dewey and Oils wore nt dagger's points,
?-.o to speak, about ilie ndmlhlutraitlon of
Filipino affairs before the Admiral re?

lesed riorts to be ripened to trade; bin

the so-called Insurgents largely, Dewey
took tho responsibility of ordering his
?hlps and gunboats to disregard nil
len ranees from those ports and direct?
ed that they should be descd. Otis
ttjqulesced; though Governor Qeiicr?l,

etui to OUb' naval operations; by do- j
cluring: f '
"if these glmboats come out of'tho

will seize them no a menace to public

in the Philippine waters, says (accord- .
ins to the Washington correspondence
of-the N. Y. Tribune):
"Spaniards kept very few ports open, I
nnd trade with others represented per?
sonal emoluments, it was not a qucs- <
tion merely of revenue to tho State.,
Men are mortal even if they are not
Spaniards or 'friendly natives.' and un- j
loss tho mutter Is handled quickly and
sternly and an accounting called for. '
there will be an administration ms.fill d
"out hero which In spots?and large ?
spots?will bo as scandalous as any- :
thing ever known to Spain.
"There are already ominous whispers
of financial Irregularities, but ih<> cen?
sor system is all-pervading. Wash ng

"Admiral Dewey.Presldent Rchurman,
Denby and Worcester recognized he
full capability of tho Filipino for self
go.vernmcnt In local affairs- Otis dis?
sents. The insurgent control of all the
ordinary domestic hdmitilstratl >n Is
strong nnd perfect. At out-of-the-way
places the postman makes his rounds
ns regularly ns In Manila. They even
have distinctive postage stomps. The
clearances are rubber-stamped, the in
surgent star replacing the Spanish
?rown. This systematic control is due
to the fact that all the subordinate otli
??ials In Spanish times were Filipinos,
and Agulnuldo had a working mnohlno
?amply by promoting the head dorks
and deputies In nil branches of the gov?
ernment hot wholly In the hands of
Judges of tho City of Now York, for
the most part, pay round sums for
their judicial oflli.es. 13efo.ro the Maze I
investigating committee, Justice Pat?
tenion, of the Appelate Division of the
Supreme Court, testified that ho paid
several thousand dollars for his elec?
tion, ho could not recollect exactly how
much. Justice Gildcrsleove paid $-1.000
as election-expenses. Justice Glcgerlch
said that he paid Tammany Had the
sum of $5,000. Justice Scott paid out
?55,0.10 In his election, and It must be
said that his account was put down,
or run up, "mighty flue."
Justice. Bisch?fe paid 510.000 to Tam?
many Hall for his election. ' Weil
might he expressa the opinion that ju?
dicial candidates should be exempt
from such black-mail. They put It lb
him "steep." Justice Mo A dam also
paid $10,000 on his nomination; and
Justice Dugro "had it socked to him"
to the tune of $10,000. He, too, thought
it would be a good thing lo have a law
forbidding such assessments.
Justice Fltzgei'iild paid $10,000, and
lie agreed with Justice Dugro. Justice
Beach paid Dick Croker $i,0G2. Jus?
tice lieckman paid $4,<97; Justice
rrtiax paid $1,500; and only one, Jus?
tice McLean, said it had never been
hinted that he was to pay anything,

The English wits used to make a dcai
