OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COUNTY.
In the coming changes amonj the man
agers of Soldier's Homes, it is to le hoped
that General Butler will cot be put out of
office. The general's executive ability has
been ol great benefit to these institutions,
nd when in congress he instituted and
pushed through a great deal of legislation
in their interest.
Here is some of the horrible results of
Democracy. Missouri has just paid $5.j0.
009 of her State debt and interest. And a
year hence a little is to be paid, which will
be the last of the debt of that great state.
. 'ot only will she be out of debt, but she
will hold railroad 7 per cent, bonds enough
to pay her an annual income of $300,000.
President Hayes baa got his back bone
stiffened and he tells applicants for public
ofiici's that a recommendation from the
wily secretary of the treasury will have no
weight with him. Indeed such recommen
dations will be worse than none at all. The
traudul'jnt president is determined that he
will have a civil service reform administra
tion at least for a dav or two.
The government bond record is a strik
ing one. The interest paid within twenty
years, being at different times, seven and
three-tenths per cent., six per cent., four
tnd one-half per cent., four per cent., and
it being the almost 'uanimoiia opinion in
congress that a throe and one-half per cent,
bind can be sold. And the bonds, once so
extensively held abroad, fire nearly
ill in our own hands now.
The great corporations of California, do
not propose to discharge thur Chinese
Uborers, in accordance with the demand
of the workinmen, until they are forced to
by the courts. As is well known, the new
constitution of the state prohibits the em
ployment of Chinese. The legislature has
enacted a law, putting that provision of the
constitution relating to Chinese laborers,
in force. The Central Pacific railroad
company has refused to comply with the
demand of the workingmen, and the presi
dent of the Shelby Smelting Works replied
to the workingmen that he considered the
law unconstitutional, and that he would
not cam ply with it until the highest couit
in the country hud decided it to be bind
ing. The chances arc that for the next few
years California will be a better place for
lawyers than for any other class of people.
Wasiunoton, Feb. 20th, 1880.
Then is a curious case now before tho
enate, on petition from citizens of Haiti
more, which has an actual hearing on real
civil reform. Four or five men formerly
employed in the Baltimore postolliee, state
that th"y have buen removed from their
positions because, in a recent investigation
they testified against tno pom muster. They
say they were told by the pontmaster gen
eral that they should not be disturbed for
anything they might testify to. They a-k
to be reinstated. An administration thor
oughly in enrncst,bauked by congn:bS,eould
unquestionably give to the service of the
government a far higher character than it
now has. The present case is one on
which perhaps, a beginning may properly
be made. The senate committee on civil
twice will at once inquire fully into the
A member of the Democratic national
. icumittee said last night that the couimit-
tee would, on the 23rd, simply notify what
seemed to bo tho general wish In the party,
in calling the convention to meet at Cin
cinnati on tho 24 th of July, or at some
date later than that.
In a few days the actual work of inquiry
into the pension office by a special commit
tee of the house, will couinvnce. The in
vestigation is of more importance than
would tit first appear. About a quarter of
a million claims tor pensions, some from
every neighborhood in the United States,
are lying in the office entirely unattended
ed to. Ten or twelve thousand per month
arc received. In every other bureau of the
government fur better attention than this is
given to business, and very naturally.
Lately tho supreme court of the United
States decided that inmates of the sol
diers1 Home lit re, the regular army Soldiers'
Home were entitled to their regular pen
sions. Previously the Home hud drawn
them and used them. Alter the decision vt s
rendered the managers of the Home, army
officers, petitioned congress for a change
in the law so that tho institution might
still reclaim the benefit of the pensions,
stuting tliut without such support the
Hotrc cou'd not be sustained. But it ap
pears that within the past few years the
Home has purchased real estate to the
value of more than a quarter of a million
dollars, none of which is any way bene
ficial to the inmates, and an investiga
tion is proposed and will probably be made
Who is Mus. Winklow? As this ques
tion is frequently asked, we will simply say
that she is a lady who for upwards of thirty
years has untiringly devoted her time and
talents as a female physieian and muse,
principally among children, Shu has es
pecially studied the constitution and wants
of this numerous class, and, as a result ot
this effort, and practical knowledge, ob
tained in a lifetime spent as nurse and
physician, she has compounded a Soothing
Syrup, for children teething. It operates
like ina''ic giving rest and health, and
is moreover, sure to regulate the bowels. In
consequence ot this article Mrs. Winslow is
becoming world renowned as a benefactor
of her race; children certainly do rise up
and bless her; especially is this the case in
this city. Vast quantities of the Soothing
Syrup are daily sold and used here. We
think Mrs. Winslow has immortalized her
name by this invaluable article, and we
sincerely believe thousands of children
have been saved from an early grave by its
timely use, and that millions yet unborn
will share its benefits, and unite in calling
her blessed. No mother has discharged
her duty to her suffering little one, in our
opinion, until she has given it the benefit of
Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup. Try it,
mothers try it now. Ladies' Visitor,

cents a bottle.
A New York special to yesterday's Pio
neer Press throws an entirely new light
upon the problem by representing that the
harbor is full of idle ships heretofore en
gaged in the carryingtradc; idle not because
f a lack of supply, because of a cessation
in demand from abroad for American grain.
This is an interesting condition of things,
if only temporary, and a startling condition
of things if permanent. A large, constant
and apparently insatiable foreign demand
tor American grain has so long been an ele
ment of American prosperity that we should
be puzzted to know how to do without it.
A cessation in the foreign demand would
not only derange Mr. Keene's plans which
is of the smallest importance but would
derange the plans ot thousands of business
interests dependent upon heavy exporta
tion; not to speak of the plans of Mr.
Sherman and other statesmen who have had
the aid of a favorable balance of trude in
the management of the national finances.

A POLITICAL DINNER.
The recent attempt to L'ivc the alleged
Sherman "boom'' u lift in New York has
been checkmated bv a dinner given by ex-
Senator Horsey tu Senator Jones, ot Neva
da, at Delmonicos on Saturday evening, At
this dinner there was a large gathering of
UepuWicaii "statesmen and the sentiment,
in favor of Grant appears to have been em
phatic and uncompromising. Grant has
secured possession of the machine in
New York in spite ot Mr. Slier
man's manipulation of the custom
house. A signitlcent fact in this connec
tion was the presence at tho dinner of
Senator Blaine, who, in spite of recent de
nials, is believed to be willing to take sec
ond place on tho Grant ticket in certain
continftcneies. The New York Times
speaking of the banquet, adds with evident
relifh that of the entire number of guests
"not a single friend to John Sherman vvns
found. There is, however, one thing to
lie paid in Mr. Sherman's favor. He
would make u considerably belter presi
dent thad (Jen. Grant.
