Charlotte Democrat. MIL FA1S0N RESIGNS W. C. DOWD. Editor. ! Solicitor of the SUte Department Re- CHARLOTTE. N. C. THURSDAY, APRIL see THE BOAD COMMISSION. What is to become of oar building in Mecklenburg? W have coce far enough to tome of its adrantages to both the j city and county, and we would con- j aider it nothing short of a calamity j to hare the gocd work stopped. For j that reason we opposed the Clanton ; bill, and had hoped it would be j defeated, but it wa3 not. J Clanton'a bill, as amended by Dr. Alexander, gives the exclusive con trol and management of the convicts and roadi of Mecklenburg county to the road commission and takes it entirely out of the control of the county commissioners. The bill further provides that the expenses of tha road working shall be "paid by the county treasurer out of the pacial funds h has on hand for this purpose." It will ba noted that this bill only protidai that the "special fund" can ba used by the commission. The county treaiurer it not authorized ta use any other fund. Thia epecial fund haa long ago bean exhausted, and if the road commissioners uual ify in April the commissioners will : tarn taa convicts over to them as j required by law, but the treasurer ; will not hare a dollar, or the author- ; ity to Jpay .out a dollar, for their ; lupport. j What then ii to be done? Is road j working to be stopped by this im- ' potent bill. As it stands the only ; way out of it as wo see it is for the j Road Commission to fail to qualify j and then road building cm go cn as usual. We appeal to the patriot ism of tbsee commissioners, and their friends, not to stand in the way of progress, but to let the mat ter etand as it is, and let the good work go on. If road workicg is stopped in Mecklenburg county the fusion members of the legislature will be responsible for it because of this law of theirs. But the Koad Com mission still has the power to nulli fy this evil by failing to qualify, and we hope they will pursue this course. siDS From His Position.

Not only was the McKinley -tariff bill number 2 put through the house forced through is nearer true before an opportunity had been given members to go through even the farce of offering amendments to have them overruled by the chair, instead of being voted down by the members, to more than about one-sixth of the entire bill, but an amendment was forced down the throats of the re publican members which is general ly conceded to be unconstitutional, and to be indirect conflict with a decision handed down by the U. S. Supreme court si bee the Wiison tar iff bill became a law. This amend ment makes the duties which will finally be imposed by the bill go into effect April 15th, although no one ex pects the bill to become a law for at least three months, and no one has any means of knowing how the duties will stand when the bill passes the Senate. This amendment is a bluff pure and simple, intended to frighu u importers into stopping importations while the bill is pending in the Sen ate. If it works, the importers are a timid set, as there are no lawyers of any prominence who regard the amendment as worth the paper it is printed on.

Pole uc In Advertising. Advertisement writing, coupled with the proper knowledge of how and where to place it to achieve the b-ot results, is btcomine more aac! more a matter of scientific abilitv An advertisement cannot be expected to oo more than to call attention, in an (special manner, to what the advertiser has to offer. To attract the notice of the people who are to he interested, the "ad" must be dressed attractively, and placed in the journal where that particular class sought after are to be found. The knowledge rf quired in the successful phcing of advertisements is above all else, as upon its accuracy depends much of the success or fail ure of the enterprise. A wise adver tiser would not select a sporting paper to advertise a certain baking powder, nor would a shrewd aner chant elect to advertise sporting goods in a religious paper. lli ticlaoi ir Washington.

Representative "Champ" Clark, of Mo., made a semi humorous speech on the tariff bill, just before tbe gag rule under wnicn it was forced through the House stopped all talk, which contained some very serious ideas. For instance, he said: "If this is not a sectional bill, how does it happen that the Western farmers find their green hides not only on the fence, but on the free list, while the New England shoe manufacturer has a high tariff on his finished producU? How. does it happen that tbe cotton growers find their products on the free list while the cotton manufacturers have theirs on the protected list? I will tell joa why. It was stated with brutal frankness by the gentleman from Indiana, tbe other day, that the Southern" and Western people would have to vote the liepublican ticket or what is equivalent to that, vote for a high tariff, or else e de oarrea irom tne Denents or your tariff legislation." Mr. Clark's con cluding words were: "We may be fools and leather-beads and all that sort of thing, but I tell you, gentle men, tlu- people living west of the Alleghany Mountains and south of the Potomac have got sense enough to know when they are sand-bagged and held up; and, fools as we are, we have some rights that the New England highwayman ought to res pect' ANOTHER POOLING BILL.

The total for the month is $11, 000,000 more than in February, and about the same amount more than in January. The increase is almost wholly in customs receipts, which were $1,210,011 today and $22,833, 856 during March. The internal revenue receipts were $22 1,173 today and $11,025,694 during March.
