Saturday, April, 2, 1881. A. M. BUIINEY, Editor. Tht STANDARD unot run in tite in Urtst of any-one man, or set of men, but in Vie interest of all elates of people, and not for nor againd any class.

I" AU persons indebted to this office for Subscription or Job work are'trequedcd to tettk the same at once. "Low Vriccs and Cash Payments" is our motto. The Situation Before the Tote. The fate of the 100-3 proposition will be decided this (Thursday) even ing at 4 o'clock by a vote in the Ken ate. We have just returned from Nashville, and will give our readers the situation as it stands before the vote is taken, and they will be better prepared to appreciate the result, which will be telegraphed to the Standard as soon as reached and pub lished in this issue. Senator Daniel, State credit Demo crat, has offered as a substitute a bill at 50, with graduated interest at 4, 5, and 6 for 30 years, half coupons for taxes. The State credit Democrats will all support this and defeat the 100 3 provided the low tax Senators will do so too, but they have up to this hour refused to do this. The Re publicans will not vote for it, and hence it will undoubtedly fail for wtfnt of the low tax support. Then the State credit Democrats will be left to choose between the 100-3 and no settle ment, of the two evils some of them will prefer the former and vote for the 100-3, not as a choice, but simply for a settlement. ii t ... meir pledge in not mauling on "the best terms that can be agreed upon as a result of negotiations." They viola ted their pledgo in voting for a propo sition that is not "Uie best terms," and O.ie that is not "agreed upon as a result of negotiations" in fact, one that has never been he subject of agreement be tween the State and iU creditors. We leave the candid reader to assess the re sponsibility of those State credit Dem ocrats who support the 100-3 proposi tion. Those Democrats who were elected on the Wilsou platform found them selves powerless in the Legislature to carry out their views, as well as to do feat the syndicate proposition of 100-3. Standing there powerless to do either of these, their duty was a plain one. The State had declared by a popular majority of 125,000 votes iu favor of an honorable and equitable settlement. Their views were thus overwhelmingly voted down. Their duty, then, was to carry out the voice of the people in se curing the "best terms that can be ob tained as a result of negotiations." If they had raflied to the State credit Democrats on this basis, the 100-3 would have been defeated in the House oy the nniteii MmM... .. 1 1 nr)t fi,n ..,;,,. or three Itenublicaus w ho voted airainst ceived before. Il it, and then the Democrats would have settled the debt at a satisfactory figure, preserved the party and saved the credit drooping heads and turn your, eyes from the grave and the gloomy scenes here below and look through the gates into the city of our God. Under the trees, iu company with angels and re deemed spirits, there is George enjoy' ing the sweet smilos of that blessed Srvior. ' How glad I am that George gave his life to the Savior and was ready for the stroke that sent him in a moment to the bar of God. To his relatives and friends who are out of Christ I would say, with all the earnestness of my soul, prepare to meet thy God. Death may hurry you by a BuJden stroke, as it did George, from the midst of your cares and pleasures to the bar of God. Now is athe ac cepted time. ''The now that flies mny be the last, Seize the Bill viition ere 'tis just, Nor mourn the blessing gone. A thought's delay is ruin here, A closing eye, a rasping breath, shuts up the KolJi'o Mjene iu death, And drowus you iu dispair." To Hattie and Jenuie I would say, weep no more for your dear brother.

The Legislature ia now working day and uight aud will adjourn next Tut day or Wednesday. They have dis posed of a great many bills this week, but they are mostly of a local charac ter, and would be of very little inter est to the general render. The road law, however, U one of special interest and we will give its mail) features next week with our views thereon. It s vary lengthy and requires time to diag nose it. The members have worked earnestly and faithfully isiuce their re turn from Washington atteudiug the inauguration. Aud, inasmuch as many people are laboring under the errone ous idea that the Legislature -took that recess and that trip at the expense of the State, we take pleasure in correct ing the impression, and saying that it cost the State not a cent ; and that all the seventy-five days allowed for the session have been fully made up and more. The people should not indulge in any false charges against their rep resentatives ; they may find enough to complain of that is true. Who are Responsible! At this date, March 28th, the fate of the 100-3 proposition, as well as any settlement of he debt, is highly prob lematical. If it is prtlled at the above named proposition it will not beasati factory settlement ; if it is not settled at all, great dissatisfaction will be the result. And in either case a weighty responsibility will rest somewhere. This, then, is perhaps the most oppor tune time to ascertain where the re sponsibility rests. "The present Legislature," as the Amrican has well said, "was elected with special reference to a settlement of the State debt." A. large majority of the members were elected with ref erence to a settlement of all the just indebtedness. A large majority of those are also Republicans who, in the late canvass, pledged themselves, from Hawkins down to the humblest mem ber, o settle at the lowest possible figure that could be obtained consistent with equity aud honesty. No one of them ever hinted at settling dollar for dollar. How have they oberved this pledge ? Have they made even n motion to as certain the lowed possible figure ? They have violated their pledge. They have neglected to make an effort to settle at a lower figure than dollar for ddkr. and rushed rashlv into the hands of the syndicate, which is a spec ulating body & &B8 between the State and its creditors and adopted their pro position rather than one of the State and creditors obtained by mutm! ana equitable concessions. We now leave the honest and candid reader to assess the responsibility of the Republican members. The State credit Democrats were a nlntform that declared c for "a prompt settlement upon the b,8t terms that can be agreed upon as a resvU of negotiations. TJiose elecud on this platform and who have voted for the 100-3 proposition have violated From Caiusville. Editor Standard : I noticed "a few weeks ago in your paper the death of Mr, George W. Moffitt, formerly of your county, but for the last few years a resident of Jasper, Tenn. Oh, how unexpected was his death to me 1 How sad I was when I read the few lines that told the sad news. 4 George for that was what I always called him was oue of my particular favorites. I loved him dearly. . It was, I believe, in the fall of 1874 at a meeting that I was conducting at He bron church, Warren county, that George professed religion aud soon after joined the C. P. church at that place, and in a tew months alter was unani mously chosen deacon of the church, in which capacity he served with zeal, and to the satisfaction of all during his stay with that church. His moral, so cial and religious qualities made all who knew him love him. Never will I forget the earnestness with which he served as deacon while I was pastor of that church. Never will I forget the interest ho took in my welfare. My family all loved Mr. George, as they called him. They always hailed his coming with delight and were sorry when he went away. 1 don t tlnuk 1 ever knew a more kind-hearted man in my life he never mil anything that was too good for his e i- rr. 1 . ; T menus, lie was in ousiness id ousper , CMrnKnA .

Ananias White's case was called in court Tuesday, the 8th, one week after the offense, and continued to the May term of court. It would bs a grett blessing to this country, threatened as it U by mobs and outlawry, if our courts would be as considerate of the crimes against the State, and the wounds against society and families as they are of the feelings and fears of those who inflicted them. In other words, that they would consider that the State and society have some rights as well as the criminals who produce the disturbance. The public peace and safety demand that Ananias White shall have justice without delay ; if he is innocent let him be at once acquitted, if he is guilty let him suffer punish ment as Bpeedily as his crime invaded the innocence of others. The criminal proceeds to his dark deeds without de lay. He consults nobody's rights or convenience. What right has he ex cept that of a fair and speedy trial ? If our laws cannot afford him this they are a farce I This profound regard for offenders at the expense of the public safety is the main spring of mob law. Break it end you destroy that law.

The Herald says further that George was faithful to his frieuds, kindly disposed to the church and loved the society of good people. Oh, it seems such a pity for him to be ta ken from earth so soon, when more possessing the noble qualities that he did are so few in the world 1 But it is said that death loves a shining mark. We don't know now but shall know hereafter why this, to us, sad dispensa' Hon or Divine 1 rovidence, it may serve as a warning to many thoughtless youths and older persons and cause them to prepare to meet their God. None, to the eye of human expectation bad fairer to live, and to live happily and usefully, than did George W. Moffitt. A life iu this world seemed to be unfolding itself before him, bright with hope and adorned with all that renders existence hero desirable aud happy. It no doubt awoke in beholders the wish that it had fallen to them to enjoy so fair a prospect, But how different the vision could our eyes have penetrated the darkness of the future. We would have seen his path soon widening from that bright scene into the valley of the shadow of death, bis earthly joys closed, his usefulness terminated, his frieuds once happy in his society weep ing around his grave. In that sad group I see two loving sisters who had for years leaned upon his strong arm and looked up iu his smiling face only to receive a kind word or whatsoever else they desired. There stands, too, it that little group a brother who loved him dearlv : vea. with devotion.
