The general assembly was accu
pied nearly two weeks electing a
few officers. They deserve a rest.
Hon. Benton McMillin is now
governor of Tennessee, the inaug
uration having taken place Monday
in a formal, quiet manner.
We note with satisfaction that a
bill has been introduced in the sen
ate by Mr. Morgan to abolish the
criminal court in this circuit. We
voice the almost unanimous senti
ment of our people in urging Mr.
Morgan's bill. Governor McMillin
has declared fpr retrenchment and
reform, and if the general assembly
is imbued with the same spirit, it
should begin the reform by cutting
off the useless offices.
It is one thing for the general
assembly to practice economy upon
others and quite another to rein
force their own purses, says the
Jackson Whig. If this is to be
known as a retrenchment and re
form body, it is a pity the members
appropriated $5.00 each for pastage
stamps out of an already depleted
State treasury. Legislative econ
omy, like charity, should begin at
home. The names of the treasury
raiders should be made public and
filed for future reference.
We are getting tired of the talk
about the lobby. There never was
a corrupt lobby unless there were
corrupt legislators for the lobby to
work on. The lobby is persistent,
but it can accomplish nothing if the
legislator refuses to be influenced
by it. If the legislator permits him
self to bo influenced by the lobby,
he is the greatest criminal of the
two, because of his position and
oath of office. Such an act should
ba mado a felony. Apply the rem
edy at both ends, i you would mit
igate the evil.
