For some time the publishers of Printers' Ink, New York, have had trouble with the Postofticc Department at Washington. There can be no doubt that many of their rulings as affecting the publication in question, have been arbitrary and unwarranted, and others have come in for the same fate. The latest to f-.-el the oppressive hand or ruling of the Postoflice Department is Home and Country, and as a result a subject of more than passing interest to pushing newspaper and magazine publishers, crops out in the Apiil number of that publication. It appears from the correspondence, all on the side of the Oovernmcnt and instigated it is believed by some Mr. Anonymous, the greatest tyrant known to American institutions and especi ally dangerous to the freedom of the press, by the way that the manage ment of the magazine, in a legitimate effort to increase circulation and bene fit advertisers, subscription agents, news dealers, etc., offered premiums (free subscriptions) to attain this result. Neither of t he coupon offers, except by a very narrow indeed a strained construction of the law, could be considered as violating its provisions. And yet the magazine containing these coupons was declared unavaila ble. What has become of the consti tutional rights ol citizens publishers included if they can be tried, found guilty, and executed on the ipse dixit of the Assistant Attorney-General t the I'ost-Oftke Department? Is this tlue process of law? Well nuy we ask, Is this Russia ? LET I S BE Jl'ST. I'nder the above heading the ('i .r lotte Observer makes some perti:u iit remarks about certain criticisms .-.hit!, it says it regrets to see in a poriimi ol the Democratic press o:i acco-i.it ol what are called the " large appropria tions" made by the late Legislature. Our contemporary :-ays, and on this point we agree with it entirely: It is important, above everything else, that in dealing wish the work of the Legislature, we should be fair, and the Observer is here to say that in the cases of the schools and the penal and charitable institutions of the State, that body did not appropriate a dollar more than it should have done. II it did, the error is one which will correct itself, for any dollar not needed by any of these institutions (all of them being in the hands of honest men), will be accounted for and turned back into the State Treasury. It is all wrong to educate our people downward about these things. The niggardly sentiment which suggests that anything is good enough for the insane, the deaf, the dumb and the blind, and that the State's institutions of learning may be starved out and its convicts half fed and half clothed, should be stamped out instead of encouraged by attacks upon the proper appropriations which have been made to them. The just critiscism of the Legislature on account of its expenditures rests upon alto gether different grounds. Its members had attacked Democratic appropria tions for necessary public purposes, and then when they came to confront the question of appropriations them selves they found that there was no room for retrenchment except at the expense of injury to the public service. They followed in the Democratic path and thus convicted themselves of false hood and duplicity. Hut their crime upon the public was not in this but in increasing, unnecessarily, the expenses of their own body, in the creation of new and costly offices and in enact ments (such as the magistrate book law, and th;i like,) which take money out of the Treasury without giving to the people any proper equivalent. Mr. John H. Inmax writes to the New York Morning A dvertiser: "The general business outlook is greatly im proved, but as my interests are partic ularly in the South I can only speak from the Southern standpoint. The South is holding its own and has been doing so for the past two years, while other parts of the country have been losing money. The South is now pretty well out of debt and everything pints' to "aVrerial improvement." - A severe rheumatic i'm 'i the left shoulder had troubled MK tJ. H.

The Southern Stock Mutual Insur ance Company of North Carolina was chartered by an act of the lately ad journed legislature, with a number of the strongest men in the State named as incorporators, and began business with its central office at Greensboro and agencies all over the State. A number of its agents were the agents also of companies embraced in the Southeastern Tariff Association, and as the Southern Stock Mutual did not propose to cut rates but to conduct itself upon a plan of amity with all other companies, it proposed to the Southeastern Tariff Association to pro rate certain local expenses with it and the proposition was accepted. A little later, however, it received notice lrom the Tariff Association that it had re considered its purpose, the letter from the secretary going on to say that in view of the rebate clause in the scheme of the Southern Stock Mutual it had been resolved not to co-operate with it. This was followed by notices to its agents throughout the State that they must not act as agents of the Southern Stock Mutual. All this has but one meaning, and that is that a North Carolina Company must not compete with the South eastern Tariff Association for North Carolina business under penalty of its boycott. Its agents are to be coerced, if possible, and it only remains to be seen how many of them, who are agents for both, will submit to the coercion. The method adopted of holding the North Carolina business for itself and driving the home com petitors out of the competition, is a thoroughly characteristic trust pro ceeding, and it will be a surprise to those who think they know them well if the people of North Carolina do not take this matter up and resent this arrogance as it deserves. The above, which is taken from the Charlotte Observer, strikes at the root of a question that should be firm ly and positively dealt with, and in a manner that will crush out for good and always such arbitrary and unwar ranted action on the part of an arro. gant and insolent insurance trust or any other kind of a trust. As we un derstand it the grievance of the South eastern Tariff Association against the Southern Stock Mutual Insurance Com pany lies in the latter's claiming the right to do what it pleases with its profits, and that their only ground of opposition to it is the fact that under its plan the policy holders share in the profits of the company. This, in the eyes ot the mighty insurance trust, st led the Southeastern Tariff Associa tion, is good and sufficient cause for venting its displeasure by issuing a de cree that Association agents shall not represent the Southern Stock Mutual. I 'or an outside combination to demand of North Carolina agents that they shall not represent a creditable North Carolina company, composed as it is of the best citizens of the State, many of whom North Carolina has seen fit to bestow upon the highest honors within her gift, is a piece of arrogance only to be expected from an organiza tion that has developed into a high handed, arbitrary monopoly. There is just cause for resentment on the part of our people in an arbi trary proceeding of this kind, and the Issue of this fight that has been insti tuted against a worthy and meritorious North Carolina institution, is a mat of no little public concern. It re mains to be seen whether the agents of such companies as are included in the combination manipulated by the Southeastern Tariff Association obey its behests and drop the Southern Stock Mutual from their list. We know what reply free and indepen dent men like North Carolinians na tive or adopted ought to make to such an impertinent demand. " Perhaps you would not think so, but a very large proportion of diseases in New ork comes from carlessness about catchin' cold," say I r. Cyrus Edson. "It is such a simple tiling and so common that very few people, unless it is a case of pneumonia, pay any attention to a cold. New York is one of the healthiest places on the Atlantic Coast and yet there are a great many cases of catarrh and consumption which have their origin in this neglect of the simplest precaution of every day life. The most sensible advice is, when you have one get rid of if as soon as possible. By all means do not neglect it." Ir. Edson does not tell you how to cure a cold but we will. Take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It will relieve the lungs, aid expectoration, open the secretions and soon etlect a permanent cure '25 and 50 cent Unties for sale bv Melville Horsey, druggist. AN OUTSIDE OPINION OF NORTH CAROLINA. Dr. Clark Bell is the editor of the Medico-Legal Journal of New York. All physicians and surgeons know who he is know that he is one of ihe foremost men in the profession in the country. He will be remembered in Charlotte as one of the company of Northern physicians who made a tour of a part of the South last year and were banqueted at Ihe Central Hotel in this city. Dr. Bell writes a letter to a North Carolina acquaintance, and from this letter the Observer is per mitted to make the following extract: 1 regard North Carolina now as the foremost State in the South. Texas is a close second, and Georgia aud Alabama next. I visited last year ev ery Southern State except Florida aud Tennessee. Your State is to be iu the front rank iu the future. You have not the mar velous resources of Texas, but you have ten times more than you use or recognize, and you are near market, and the blood that is at the bottom of the civilization of North Carolina is as good and souud as any in the nation; ud, what seems to you like a catastro phe, is like the working of water at sea and all will come clear, bright, beautiful and healthy in due time. The allusion in the final clause is to the existing political conditions. Who has paid the Old North State a handsomer tribute than the foreeoin?. and when? Charlotte Observer. THRIFTY COXGRLSSMEX. j How Some of Them Made "Both Ends Meet" That ia Gobbled up All the Dncats in Sight. " Uncle Sara he pays the bill," and some Congressmen as well as others appear to be on the make purely, judged by the following from the Washington Star of recent date : Evidence is multiplying to show that some of the members of the Fifty third Congress were very thrifty fel lows, and that they did not let any thing get away from them. The latest indication of this fact, coming upon the top of considerable gossip and rumor of a similar nature, is the detec tion of a Representative in the act of selling to the Department of Agricul ture the quota of garden seed issued to him by the Government. The report of the clerk of the House of Representatives, issued just before the adjournment of Congress, shows that a large number of Representa tives did not draw any stationery during the three sessions of Congress, but instead took the $375 in cash, the equivalent of their stationery accounts. Of course they had a right to do this under the law, but the gossips say that in many cases the members of the House used the stationery furnished to the committees of which they were members, thereby enabling them to get along without touching their own accounts. Each committee was fur nished a certain amount of stationery, and the full quota was usually drawn. THE MILEAGE PRIVILEGE. The mileage privilege, of course, is an old story, and the Congressmen had a rich haul in this for the three sessions. The men who did not travel on passes were very lew in number, but they all raked off the mileage. Railroad passes were unusually plenti ful in the last Congress, owing to pending railway legislation, and those members who were sharp supplied themselves with annual passes, which would enable them to do a little traveling during the summer. Evidences are plentiful of wholesale disposals of Government publications by members of the House. There was a large distribution of books among the outgoing members, and some of the volumes were valuable. Many of these have been bought, it is said, by dealers, who paid the Con gressmen cash and who expect to realize a profit upon the sale of the books in the future. The Agricultural Department has recently been obliged to purchase 200 copies of one of its own publications, paying the bookseller 50 cents a copy. Of course, the dealer had bought them from Congressmen, knowing that there would be a later demand for the publication. TRAFFIC IN SEED. The traffic in seed is a new feature of Congressional thrift. It was but recently that the Agricultural Depart ment got an idea that there was some thing crooked in the seed transactions ol some members, and steps were taken to catch the offenders. It is expected that evidence will be obtained of several shady transactions in seed on the part of Congressmen, and it is said that Secretary Morton proposes to publish all the facts in connection with the matter in a report to the next Congress, in which "he will rec ommend some changes in the method of distributing seed and department publications. Four big Successes. Having the reeded merit to more than make good all the advertising claimed for them, the following four remedies have reached a phenomenal sale.

"WHEN SPRING COMES "I Recommend Pe-ru-na to AH Suf ferers," says W. T. Powell, Clar iiigfton, Ohio. W. T. Powell, editor cf the Inde pendent, of Clarington Ohio, writes that he was taken sick with bronchitis and catarrhal fever, head was in a ter rible condition, lungs were badly af iected, being so tight and sore he could hardly breathe, and coughed almost incessantly. For two months tried local physicians, took cough medicines and other medicines. Took three bottles of Pe-ru-na and was en tirely cured. It is needless to attempt to give on ly the vaguest outline of the wonder ful success which Pe-ru-na has met with in the cure of catarrh. This suc cess is entirely due to the fact that Pe-ru-na eradicates the disease from the system, instead of temporarily re lieving some disagreeable symptom. Not only is catarrh in all stages and varieties cured promptly, but also colds, coughs, bronchitis, la grippe, catarrhal dyspepsia, all yield, surely and permanently, to the curative vir tues of Pe-ru-na. As a spring medicine Pe-ru-na is a neverfailing remedy. It cleanses the blood through digestion, and gives tone to the whole system by increas ing the nutritive value of the food. "Spring fever," as it is sometimes called, which produces a tired-out, sleepy feeling, and inability to do much physical or mental work, is the result of a sluggish digestion, and no blood medicine will be of any use whatever unless it is able to rectify the impaired digestion. The great popularity that Pe-ru-na has is due to the fact that in all such cases it at once corrects digestive derangements and enriches the blood by purifying this very important source of that vital fluid.

Notes About the Great Cotton States and International Exposition to be Held in Atlanta Next Fall. One of the moat interesting exhibits in the machinery department at the Cotton States and International Exposition, will be the practical exposition of the process by which gold is extracted from the wail. Mr. John Wilkes, of the Meck lenburg Iron Company, of Charlotte, N. C, has completed arrangemente for a separate building in which the company he represents will exhibit the new chlori nation process of extracting gold from the soil. The building will be a large and attractive one, and will house one of the most interesting exhibits ever seen at any exposition. The exhibit will be kpt in operation during all hours when the gates of the Exposition are open, and will be of peculiar interest to those in terested in the new gold fields which are being opened in different parts of the Piedmont section, as well as to gold miners from all parts of the world. The Department of Justice will make a small but interesting exhibit iu the (Jov ernment building at the Cotton States aud International Exposition. It will include portraits of eminent men who have occupied positions as Attorney General of the Cuited States from the time of Randolph, in 1789, up to the presenty year. Among these will be many distinguished men from the South ern States. Printed copies of Supreme Court reports in historic cases, will be on exhibition. In the same department will be exhibited photographs of Cuited States prisons. In this connection, the prisoners will be shown iu various kinds of employment and discipline, together with souvenirs showing the ingenuity of men in solitary confinement. Among these will be such curious relics as keys whittled from broomsticks and used to unlock prison doors, saws made from dinner knives and used to cut through iron doors, and canes curiously wrought from polished woods and horn. The whole prison system will be illustrated in an interesting manner. The Buildings and Grounds Commit tee of the Cotton States and Internation al Exposition has just closed a contract with Dr. P. J. Kerckinans, the proprie tor of Fruitlands Nurseries, of Augusta, for shrubs and evergreens with which to ornament the Exposition Pmk. Dr. Berckmans is president of the Georgia Horticultural Society, and has been hon ored by the presidency of the national society of the same name. He is one of the most eminent scientific horticultu rists of America and has for years made a study of the possibilities of the South ern States in growing fruits, shrubs and flowers. A very wide variety of plants has been secured and they will be ar ranged so as to show to the greatest ad vantage the various hues of the foilage. The lake will be bordered with running honeysuckle and the park will be elabo rately ornamented with shrubs and ever greens and such flowers as may be grown in the autumn. A competent landscape gardener has been employed, and will begin planting at once. By the 18th of September the park will present a rare scene of beauty. The courts have granted a charter to the Mexican Village Company, which will erect a typical village on the Ter races, at the Cotton States and Interna tional Exposition grounds, and the work of construction will proceed at once. This will be one of the most attractive for eign Villages on the Terraces, and will reproduce literally, the characteristic scenes of Mexico. One of the most interesting and in structive features of the Government display in the Forestry building at the Cotton States and International Expo sition will be a set of three models, the one to represent a 160-acre farm in the hill lands of the South, which by bad management, and especially by improper cutting of the forest, has become gullied, furrowed and sifted over, such as one can see almost iu every State. The next model will show how with bush dams, with ditching, proper drain age, with terracing, with sodding and re planting, the lost ground may be re covered, while the third model, repre senting the same 160 acres, is to show how, finally, thefarm should look ideally, with the fields and meadows and forest growth properly disposed, in good con dition, the roads running at proper levels instead of up and down, the fences re duced to the smallest extent practicable. It is hoped that this object lesson will be studied by every farmer and stimu late him to improved methods. A beautiful feature of the Forestry exhibit to be made by the United States Government Bureau of Forestry at the Cotton States and International Expo sition will be the substitution of trans parencies for the bare glass in the win dows of the building. The transparen cies will show a series of beautiful views of the most important timber trees, and these pictures will be surrounded by transparencies of the leading saw-mill establishments of the South. At a recent meeting the committee on concessions and privileges granted to Kee Owyang, a Chinaman representing a New York company, the right to erect the Chinese Village at the Cotton States and International Exposition. This village will be of characteristic, Chinese architecture, aud one hundred and sixty feet square. It will be surrounded by a wall, and inside will be a Chinese theatre, booths, flower gardens, tea houses, and all manner of Chinese attractions. Chi nese merchants will have on sale their rich and unique wares, and the village will be a veritable little Chinatown. The concessionaire is an educated Chinese gentleman, and is backed by ample capi tal. The Chinese Village will be one of the best attractions on the picturesqe "Terraces" the Midway of the Atlanta Fair. Work on the Scenic Railway at the Cotton States and International Expo sition is proceeding rapidly, and it will be ready for opening by the first of May. Under his contract, the concessionaire will be permitted to operate his scenic railway from the time of its completion, so that this summer it will be a favorite recreation for those visiting the Exposi tion grounds before the ojiening of the gates on the 18th of September. The railway is about 3,500 feet long, and carries the visitor rapidly through a magnificent and brilliaut scene including long caverns, brilliantly lighted with electric lights and sparkling with stalac tites and other famous natural wonders. Among glimpses of foreign lands, proba bly the most interesting will be scenes from Japan, one representing Port Ar- i thur, which was recently captured by j the Japanese after a severeeonflict. The ; railway will be one of the great attroe-! tions of the Terraces. j Before buying; poods advertised at ; cost, look at our stock. We will not be ' tind'TsnM. Davis A-Rose.
